For the first time in so long, Hayley was having a somewhat of a pleasant dream. Even though her instinct was telling her it's not real and not to get too comfortable.
("Hello." Hayley called out, walking around what seem to be an abandoned castle.
The only sounds she could hear were water dripping loudly somewhere, rats squeaking and the window blowing wildly through the broken windows.
"Hello?" Hayley called again, when she heard giggling and followed it.
When she entered through the doorway, the scene shifted.
She was no longer in the castle but outside, to where she saw two women speaking.
One seem to be glowing, and floating before the woman who was dressed in a uniform, bleeding and holding onto her side.
Hayley knew instantly that it was the moon goddess, but she didn't know who the other woman was.
"Please, I don't know who you are. But I beg you to save me, spear my life."
As the moon goddess smiled upon the wom
After school let out early, Hayley made a detour to the forest. Thinking that she could find answers about her dream, the pendent and why she keeps hearing that voice. "Well, hey there, pretty girl." The voice of Gunther came. Hayley looked behind her to see him leaning on a tree. "Are you following me?" Hayley asked. "I could ask you the same. I was out here before you." Gunther said, now walking past her. "Wait, about being my guide." Hayley paused because she didn't know if she should tell him. ''I wasn't really offering my service, was only saying that to cheer you up. A wolf should find their own way." Gunther said, a weird smile forming on his lips. "Oh, never mind then." Hayley turned away from him. He gave a laugh. "I'm just joking, Hays. You need to be more assertive, can't allow people to walk over you." "But isn't that why I'm in the pack? For you and the Alpha to guide me. I'm a lower rank than even
Gunther made his way over to a table that was low to the ground and piled the books there."Hayley, on the shelf behind you. Pull off the black book with purple writing."Hayley did as he said, then instantly dropped the book."Is this a joke to you?""Oh, sorry. The thick hardcover book.""Why do you even have so much dirty magazines?""I told you, I have needs.""Why not go find your mate?""Because young, foolish Hayley. She isn't 18 yet, which means her scent is still unknown to me and I actually want to enjoy the last of my teens before getting hitched.""Your teens? How old are you?"Gunther looked over at Hayley, "19. How old did you think I am?""Rough 20s."Gunther raised a brow at her, then glanced at Josie."This one, eh? But yes, not so wise girl. I am the youngest one in my family to ever become Delta. And one of the youngest to be a leader of this pack.’’&ldqu
When Hayley got home, she ignored her adopted parents, not believing that they would lie to her.She made sure to lock her room door behind her, took an empty duffle bag from under her bed and start stuffing her things in it.She made up her mind once and for all that this is the day, or night, she would leave the Wolfgang pack.If they could hide who she was from her, then they won't miss her as much. She knew they know about her past, where she came from, but refused to tell her.Hayley paused to look at herself in the mirror.She scoffed, then turned away from it.Hayley dropped her bag first, then jumped down from her window, landing badly on her ankle.She bit her tongue to not cry out in pain and sat on the cold ground for a while before getting up.She shouldered the bag and hurried to the forest, looking behind her with every chance she got to make sure no one saw her or was following her.She crawled under the b
The next day after school, Hayley sat downstairs at the pack mansion waiting for Axel so she could help him with his work.She was told that he was out with some friends.Which almost made her want to leave, but it was all for the sake of looking good to some of her teachers.Hayley's mind drifted back to her run in with Aspen. She knew there was something he wasn't telling her and she was going to find out what it was.Hayley checked her time again, because to her, apparently playing a game of catch the town bitch was more important than Axel's own education.His father came to check on her every minute. Offering food, water, juice, or if she wanted to watch a movie while she waited."Are you sure that you don't want anything to eat?'' Charlie asked, once again poking his head around the corner."No, I'm fine. Just patiently waiting on Axel.'' Hayley said, thinking that she will wring his neck when he got home."Is it cool if
The moment Hayley got home, the rain started to pour down, even though there were no signs of clouds. So she sat in her room on the window seat, watching the rain.She watched as the water droplets raced to get to the bottom of the windowsill.She glanced slightly over her shoulder, at her adopted sister who just entered her room and to sit on her bed."My bed is off limits. Don't want your scum juices dripping on it. Don't know what you and Diego have been up to." I told her."So, how is Axel?'' Carrie asked.She was skipping through a magazine, not really reading it."What?'' Hayley asked. She wasn't really paying attention to much."You know, how is he doing? What do you think I mean?'' Carrie laughed."Oh, well, Axel is Axel, always been Axel.'' Hayley said.She didn't want to say anything more, because there wasn't anything to say."Well, duh, who else would he be? And what's with this music?" Carrie made a f
"Tell me about it,'' Hayley mumbled, now once again feeling sad.She could hear Davina yelling at someone as she went downstairs and wondered what anyone saw in her."Hmm, she is just trash and nothing else. Can't believe I got fooled by her, but that's just her damn wolf ability.'' Gunther said.Hayley didn't think he said it for her, but she heard."What now, cause that's not the first time I heard someone say that." Hayley sat up straight."She has a siren's call, can manipulate anyone. She did it to me, the Alpha, and Conrad. Obviously, only two of us have been able to get over it." Gunther informed.Conrad made a grunting sound, then got up and left the room.'No wonder, that bitch!' Hayley thought."Been using her damn siren call crap on the pack." That gave Hayley even more reasons to hate her.Hayley looked over at Gunther, wondering how he broke out of Davina's spell, and how many other people were still under h
Hayley cried to herself that night, hating herself for trying to pretend as if her parents hadn't just die.She hated how she was nonchalant most of the time, which now made her seemed uncaring.Her parents were the best people she knew in the pack, and they didn't deserve to die.She rolled to her back, using the end of Kane’s shirt that she was wearing to wipe her nose.And soon, she drifted off into a deep sleep. Not dreaming of anything.Hayley's own snores woke her up. She jumped up, opened her eyes, but immediately closed them again. Her eyes felt puffy, and the sunlight that was streaming in felt painful on her iris."Good morning sunshine!" Kane said, he was way too cheery even for his own self and so early in the morning.Hayley twisted around so fast, she fell off the bed with a loud thud and a huff sound.Kane laughed and shook his head. "After sharing the same bed, with you snuggling up to me, I never expected
Hayley opened one eye, then the other, looking at her final score. She got all perfect scores, expect in Wolf Anatomy. Simply because she didn't know how to explain what it was like to undergo the shift. But she didn't care. She still passed, and it was now the end of the last school year for her, so was it for everyone else. Well, not everyone, just those that finished their schooling and didn't get held back for another year. Even though Hayley was happy to be finished with school, she was not excited for one thing. At the end of school for the senior year students, they all have to do an impossible obstacle course, one that placed them in their class of work. It could be in the office, or out in the fields, or even being a guard. Whatever it was, once you are finished with school, you have to go through with the course. Hayley sighed as she, and the other seniors made their way to the gym. It was as if she was walking to her end. "H
