Catori turned to Kurt and asked, "What's going on?"
"I asked to speak to a lawyer," the boy in the chair said again. Everyone in the room ignored him. Kurt signalled to Tori for them to speak outside the room while Kasa stayed behind to watch the intruder.
"This guy is dangerous, Tori. Let me handle him," Kurt said once they were out of the room.
"How did you catch him?" she asked.
With a sigh, he answered. "He was hiding behind one of the large trees close to these training grounds," he said. "I suspect he wants to learn our way of training and battle. It's not a coincidence that he decided to spy on this part of North Lotus first."
Catori took some time to regard his words. They made sense and Kurt was never one to dwell on wrong reasoning unless he was very sure about it. But there was something about that boy. He did not like a spy to her. He seemed a little t
It happened quickly. His fist flew towards the boy's jaw soon, there was a loud crack. With speed like lightning was on his feet and narrowly dodged the blow. Kurt Hemming was breathing heavily. His nostrils flared. His usually pale skin was red like fire. His usually tranquil baby blue eyes were looking tense with his pupils being enlarged. The hair on his neck were on alert and he was becoming hairier by the second.Kasa was scared, getting ready to fight him or hold him down if necessary. His wolf was coming out. It must have been crying to be released all this while. Every soul in the room was tense except Catori. She sat down assessing Liam. Something about him was not right. Something about him was familiar to her, it was too familiar in fact. Unfortunately she could not really place a finger on it.Meanwhile, Liam was watching Kurt with every ounce of seriousness, so was Kasa. Gradually, Kurt's appearance went back to bein
Catori slung the strap of the shoulder bag over her head and nestled it on her right shoulder. She contemplated whether to take her phone or not but ended up deciding against it. After all, who was there for her to call? Or who would ever decide to try reaching her?She went to the mirror to study her appearance. Today, she had chosen to wear the most comfortable of all her clothes. It was a black shirt on a pair of black joggers and black sneakers. She wanted to be able to easily blend in with the shadows. The only thing which was likely to give her away was her flaming red hair. The joggers had as many pockets as there could be. Each pocket contained weapons that would come in handy on the journey. She wore a pair of sneakers to top it off. What bothered her was what to do about her hair. Dyeing it was going to be useless, the dye would still fade soon. Instead, she tied it in a small bun and wore a black beanie over it.Openin
Nine elders were seated at the round table. Nine people who were to be the elders of the pack. Nine members, of which the majority came to do what they knew best, to plot evil. They sat, each wearing his or her black cloak to signify that they were about to deliberate on certain issues. "We should not have given her two more weeks to find that wretch mother of hers," Zeta Ahmik said. "That will make it a month with us not having an Alpha." "You have to be fair to the girl," Mrs Maxwell said. "She is doing everything she can to bring our Alpha back. If anything, I expected you all to at least be proud of her efforts." Beta Calian snorted. "You speak like she is the only one who is making effort, Gamma Maxwell." He smirked. "I am not surprised at your stand though, you are her fellow woman, after all." "What is that supposed to mean, Calian?" Mrs Maxwell asked. Zeta Ahmik answe
There were barking noises all over the place. Four wolves stood in a circle observing the carcass before them. Suddenly, one ran out of the circle and took a big bite out of her.Catori woke up with a start. The excruciating pain coming from her left side made it difficult for her to move. The slightest move of a muscle sent intense waves of pain all over her body. The brightness of the sun was too much for her eyes to handle as her lids slowly opened."Don't move," a masculine voice her right commanded.As if I can even try, she said in thought.She could not even turn to see the stranger."Who are you?" she managed to get out though her voice sounded nothing more than a tiny whisper. There was no response.If you want to kill me, you might as well make a little conversation, Catori thought.She briefly closed her eyes and when she opened them, there was a face blocking the sun from her face.
The sun was shining bright in the sapphire sky. One would think that with the brightness with shone with the heat accompanying it would be promising but no, there was no heat at all. In fact, the air was as refreshing it could be.Fenris sat on the lowest branch of the tree, staring into the sky. The feeling he had at the cave was one that he wasn't familiar with. He felt an odd sensation, a sweet one that his inner self did not want to let go. From the moment he set his eyes on her, his body had began to tingle.His ear drums were filled with the sound of another person's heartbeat even before Zayna brought her into the cave. He thought he was just imagining things until she came in. Although she was covered in blood, he still could not believe his eyes. The definition of a perfect hour glass figure stood before him. His jaw almost dropped to the floor. The eye contact which they briefly shared felt like a thousand years in her arms. It sent
That part of the forest was tranquil. There was only the chirping of birds to be heard. The rays of the sun pierced through the partings in the leaves to illuminate the ground. The ground was littered with dry and fresh leaves which had fallen.There was a figured rested on the trunk of an oak tree. The figure had blonde hair, white skin and was adorned with dirty grey clothes. A gentle breeze blew on the girl, causing her to stir. Gradually, those baby blue eyes opened and stared at nothing in particular until they were able to focus. She could not recognize her surroundings at first until the memory hit her like lightning.It was very dark and she was running without focus. She lost her friends. Then she stopped to catch her breath. That was where the memory stopped.With a start, Kasa jumped up from where she sat. It had just dawned on her that she was in fact very lost. She took a second look at the place she was
The sun kissed his sand colored hair. Liam had been wandering about for the whole morning and afternoon. He had gotten up early to find the others. Thus far, he was unsuccessful. He was about to give up until he heard a Voice singing. The voice was so sweet to listen to. It sounded like it was a nymph singing. It caused a wave of calm to wash over him. He closed his eyes in order to savour this sweetness and short lived peace of mind. Liam was rooted on the spot until he concluded that the owner of the voice should be investigated. He listened for it. For some reason, there was nothing to be heard. The forest was a quiet as ever, as if it had always been this quiet. "But I'm sure I heard singing," he said to himself. "How come I suddenly feel like there was never anything here to be heard? Let me try again." He listened again for it, this time with more focus. This time, he heard the sweet voice again. It sounded like it had never
We all stood behind a tree close to the South border to make sure that nobody was there. The five of us were hurdled together in one spot."From here, it's going to be your call, Catori," Fenris yelled over the rain."Okay," I managed to say. I kept wondering if he felt what I felt whenever he was close to me or if I just happened to have some sort of crush on him.Get your head in the game, Catori, I scolded myself. The last thing I needed was to be caught up in my daydreams about somebody who couldn't care less about me."There's nobody there," the lady I had come to know as Amar said. My eyes made a beeline for the security post with my vision was slightly blurred due to the rain. True to her words, there was nobody there."Once we get passed that guard post, we just have to keep going straight ahead to the big building in the centre of the town," I told them.T
