My eyes harden as I stared at Elijah. "I won't let you down. However, to be on the safe side, I have an idea to tell you..." I hoped that my plan made sense to him. "What are you trying to say?" Elijah asked. “What is your idea?”
"I was thinking, maybe I can have plastic surgery and change my face." I said nervously. "In this way, I think it will be less likely that someone will reveal my true identity."
It was a good idea not only for my past issues but also for my present problems. Since wolves did not have a heighten sense of smell in the human world. Anyone from Jacob's pack or anyone hired to search for me would be looking for my face.
"Oh, it's not necessary." Elijah flatly refused. "Did you know that you look very different from when you were a child, and even your pupil color has changed."
“Really?” I was amazed that I had changed that much.
Elijah and I headed back to the stage. I held my head up high and smiled at the crowd. The host and announcer of the contest was hyping the crowd up to for my return on stage.I had to hand it to Elijah the people that were under his employment knew how to turn the situation no matter the situation. He has applauding as I returned to the from of the stage.The host shouted at everyone, “ CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!!!!!! ” The audience were roaring at his dramatic announcement."Oh, it was just a wonderful impromptu performance just now. Ms. Ava's acting skills have fooled us all. She is indeed our acting star." I looked at him appreciatively, he was a man who was good at getting out of trouble."Now, we announce that Moon Entertainment will officially sign contracts with the top three winners of this acting competition. First place, Ms. Ava. Second place, Ms. Lily. Third place, Ms. Jessica."
I jolted awake a scream. I had another dream about Jacob and his mistress, Alex. I considered this something lucky that it was only nightmares. Now that I was in the human world, I could not feel the mating bond with Jacob like I usually would in the were world.I left my bedroom and journeyed to the kitchen. I grabbed a glass from the cabinet and proceeded to fix myself a drink of water. My next step was to change out of my night clothes because they were drenched in sweat.It was not secret that Alex and Jacob were fooling around behind my back. They had been dating for years before Jacob and I met. When his wolf recognized me as their fated mate; he chose me.Jacob always felt ashamed and nostalgic for Alex. I took care of everything very well; I was the perfect mate and Luna. But it was not enough.It wasn't until six years later, when Alex returned to the pack, and she told Jacob that she
Elijah summoned me to his office the next day to go over his idea for me to gain more exposure. I did not have to knock, because before I reached to touch the door with my knuckles I heard his deep voice calling out to me.“Enter.” I grabbed the knob, turned, and walked in. There he was across the room from me sitting in a very prestige desk looking over paperwork. He was wearing a tan three piece suit and wrapped his frame and muscles.Just the sight of him made me tempted. Too bad his actions left me wanting to stay far away from him. True he apologized tome and even convinced me to sign to his compnay, but I felt like I was under another man’s thumb.True it had its perks but being a part of this company was like being apart of a wolf pact. I was at the bottom of the hierarchy because I was new to everything around me. Things seemed to change in the last decade.Even though I was the Luna of Jacob&rsq
Ava’s POVI honestly thought I was helping Lily. I thought I was doing something nice for someone and she would do the same for me. I did not think that she still held any grudges against me, but clearly, I was wrong.You should be more careful. Tide said into my mind. We cannot smell lies or other emotions here like we could in the were world. Not all humans are friendly.She was right in the werewolf world I was easily able to sense the lies, the fears and even the mistrust of those around us. Here amongst the humans, I felt as if everything was unclear. From the diminish of my perfect sight—I could still see but not as far away as I was used to—to the inability to hear miles away from my location.It was almost like being a human.Don’t make me laugh. Tide countered. We are nothing like them we just need to be more careful around these mortals, especially
As I walked across the stage as my name was being announced, I felt butterflies in my stomach. This was new too me. I never got truly nervous when I performed but this was different. I was showcasing my body as if it was a talent.There were nineteen other beauty pageant contestants besides me and every one of them were not only beautiful, but it was plain as the nose on the announcer’s face that each one of them were determined to win.After the stroll around the stage flashing smiles and waves, we were sent backstage to change into the evening gowns. The one that Elijah and the stylist--who’s names I learned later was Tessa—agreed upon a jaded green floor length gown with a corset bodies.Curse them both for picking this dress, how do women breathe in this thing? The dress used cords instead of strings to cinch my chest and waist tightly into the dress. The gown at my pelvis bunched at the bottom of the corset before cascading down t
Sally told me that the success and buzz I created at the pageant led to two script offers. I was excited to hear that the pageant did pave the wave for not only two new roles for myself but also to build my fanbase. It had me thinking how big I could have been it I had never left the human world.I asked Sally to explain the roles in getter detail, however she could only give me the premise and general idea of both roles. One was a female guest on a big hit series, Sally speculated that it could lead to a reoccurring role in the future. The other was a supporting actress role in a small budget movie.I told them that I wanted to look over both scripts before making my decision. This was the first time I got a look at the full script for a film. Elijah had pulled some strings to get the full script in my hands.He had given both to me in his office away from prying eyes. No one besides myself and Elijah knew about the full scripts, and I wanted to keep it that wa
Elijah’s POVI looked over the new faces that had been added to our roster. A lot of the pretty faces that the competition had brought made it clear they wanted to be models or designated for commercials. Which was fine by me, not everyone had the potential that Ava brought.Or even Lily for that matter.I had not seen either girl in the studio since both got roles for their debuts. I had given actresses such as Ava and Lily freedom in certain aspects, but I could see that the pettiness in some of the actors needed to be reined in.Before my thoughts could go any further, I heard a knock at my office door. “Enter.” I said. I truly missed my wolf senses during this time.With my heightened senses I would be able to know who was at my door and whether or not I wanted them in my presence or not. Other than my assistant and Grayson I was not really in the mood to had petty squabbles between actors.When I looked up, I saw none
As Elijah looked at the pictures in front of him, he tried his best to piece everything together with the little information that was in front of him. While he did agree to give Ava a new identity and background; he could not stop him self from trying to find the gaps in her past. He did not extinguish the search for what happened to Ava for the decade that she had been missing.How did a young child star just go missing for ten years and no one report it? Elijah thought as he looked through old newspaper articles on his desktop.Everything about this was as clean as a cut.Even with all my connections I should be able to find something more about Ava’s disappearance. Elijah thought as he leaned back into his desk chair. Grayson had warned him not to obsess over this situation, but Elijah could not help it.Looking at all her pictures and headlines when she was a young child she could not have been more than nine or ten years old when she was discovered. She had been in and out of sm
