Slowly I looked at the voice.
A tall man with a lean figure was standing below the tree, staring at me with his head tilted slightly towards the left.It was not hard for me to recognize that brown jacket and the beanie.
The light peeking through the leaves was falling unevenly on his face.
"No, I...I am with a friend," I tried to lie while keeping an eye on him.
He gave a short laugh and scratched his beard with long dark nails.
"A friend you say. Where is this friend?"
My heart started beating faster as he took a step forward.
"He is waiting for me and if I did not get there in five minutes he will come here with other people."
He paused on his spot like he was thinking if I was telling him the truth or not.
"You are lying," he finally said.
I started thinking of every possible way to get out of there, "Wait here for five minutes and you will get the proof."
He shook his he
Waiting for the burning sensation of his teeth sinking inside my flesh, I kept my eyes closed.After very long seconds which felt like hours, I opened my eyes as the pain I was preparing myself for never came.The sun was almost dipped behind the canopy of trees, which was now more clear. The faint light was coming towards my way but it was getting blocked by the masculine figure standing in front of me.I ran my eyes around the whole scene, I was near the exit but never noticed it because of my fear.The brown wolf was on the ground a few feet away with his fur covered in blood around the neck.I turned my gaze away from him quickly as I was almost sure he was dead from the amount of blood that was soaking the grass beneath him.I tried to look at the man standing in front of me like a statue without moving at all.The faint smell of familiar cologne entered my nostrils and I was instantly aware of the identit
Damien was standing still near the door, with hands in the pocket of his dark pants.I did not say anything and watched the girl place the plate of food on the table one more time."I said I am not hungry."Just then the loud growl from my stomach pierced through the silence of the room.Damien arched an eyebrow barely containing his laughter, "Sure."The girl stood next to the table with her head down."You can leave," Damien announced in a stern voice without looking at her.The girl left the room without saying another word or glancing in my direction.Damien pushed the chair for me to sit but I did not move from my place."I am not eating anything until you give me answers," I folded my arms."We can talk after you eat something.""Where am I? Does my family know about my whereabouts? How did that man turn into an animal and how did you kill it so easily?"Damien stood in front of me without sayi
It might be the first time the warmth of the water was not providing me the comfort I was searching for desperately. I was annoyed because I was still locked inside the room like an animal....the irony was laughable and I would have laughed only if I was still in my town and not in some foreign place surrounded by werewolves. The first thing I saw after opening the window was not the stunning view of the forest with the soft rays of sun spreading over it, but a private property with large gates. I would have jumped from the window to reach the garden but I was stuck on the second floor. A knock on my door stopped me from cursing Damien, "What?" "I have left your clothes on the bed." It was the same calm voice of the girl from yesterday night. "Okay." I quickly wrapped a towel around my body and made my way to the bedroom. There was everything I needed on the bed placed neatly. I changed into the grey w
One thing was crystal clear, the sudden decision of sending Faith away was not so sudden after all.Mom saved Faith from everything.She picked her favorite daughter to have a safe life away from the hunters and the werewolves. But how did dad agree with her plan?Did Adam know about this?Countless questions were running inside my head freely but there was one question bigger than others. Why was I alive?Damien could have killed me that day easily, killing was not hard for him, and from his reaction, it wasn't new either.There was a knock on the door.I rolled my eyes wondering what's the point of knocking if they were keeping the door locked?The same girl entered with a smile, carrying a huge bowl in her hands. The bowl was not huge but it looked huge as compared to her."I get it Damien asked you to keep me alive but you don't have to go through so much trouble," I looked outside the window keeping my h
"So, you're telling me that these are some sort of werewolf genes which are passed on from one generation to the other?"Ruhee nodded slowly, "There are exceptions, of course.""What do you mean?"I was finally getting to know something about the new world."Sometimes the child is not a werewolf, even if both the parents are," she explained with a sad tone to her voice.Ruhee seemed like the person who did not belong in the world of werewolves. The beanie man, Damien, and the few others I had seen were the exact opposite of the gentle girl in front of me.But looks could be deceiving, said the small voice inside my head."A person can't turn by the bite from a werewolf on the night of full moon?"She giggled softly and shook her head, the hair in the ponytail moved with the motion of her head.How well hidden was their world and more importantly what other creatures were lurking in the dark with the human mas
I opened my eyes only to find myself alone.With a groan, I brushed away the popcorn from my lap.I was in the middle of stretching my arms when my gaze met with his shining blue eyes.If it was not for the eyes I wouldn't have noticed the man standing near the door in the complete darkness.We both stayed silent."Are you here to tell me I made a mistake or lecture me about staying inside the room."There was a brief silence from his side, "I do not want to tell you what to do, Nora. I want you to feel welcome here but I also want you to stay alive."With a frown forming on my forehead, I looked away from those electric eyes."How can I ever feel that when you are trying to control my life?""There are so many things you know nothing about.""Then tell me everything," I snapped at him, "I don't want to stay in the dark."I was no longer sitting down but standing in front of him, even though his f
There was a deafening silence in the room as I tried my best to process the new information.I could feel Ruhee's eyes boring into my head, but I did not say a word.Damien was a freaking prince.And he did not even mention it. Forget it, he did not mention a lot of things and it was time for him to start speaking.She cleared her throat to get my attention. I finally looked away from the blue wall."I am fine, I just need to have a word with Damien."Her eyes widened, "You can not leave the room until the man is gone."I smiled at her, "Don't worry, I know that."A wave of relief passed from her face as she eased slightly, "Do you want me to get you something to eat?"I shook my head in return, "Can you please tell me when he is gone?""Of course, I will go and check," she ran out of the room.How did I end up here?About 10 minutes passed with no sign of Ruhee or Damien. I had an urge t
There was no reason for me to feel the cold sharp needles whenever I saw Amber with Damien. But I couldn't ignore them, no matter how much I tried.Amber became the life of the house, nothing was silent whenever she was around, The silence of the breakfast was filled with her stories about what she did or something about Damien.Damien barely said anything but he would avoid looking at me whenever she was around and I could understand the reason. Amber was the most perfect girl I had seen in my life, whether it was her flawless tanned skin, her expensive clothes hugging her curves to enhance the beauty, her curly hair which seemed to be styled by her personal hairstylist."Silver, please don't put your elbows on the table," Silver acted like he did not hear the words and continued eating.I was done eating breakfast and needed some fresh air.The garden surrounded the three-story mansion, the small trees were given different shapes all
