This is the story of my family this is the story of my clan how we are different from those around us. And how we must stay together to survive we are all we have. This is a clan that has never been and in some eyes should never be yet we are bound by blood and that is strong enough to brake all the rules.
How I Came To be
Life one the move has never been a bad thing for me till now my name is Silver Norblood and its been a week since my mother passed away. Ever since I was a child me and my mother Lanora have been living hand and to moth and staying were we could find a worm place. We took all kinds of decent jobs busting tables, washing cars, and cleaning rooms all in order to sleep in hotel for a night or to. This was all due to the fact that my father had passed when I was four. David Norblood my father was a man of many gifts and be for he passed away to cancer he thought me and my mother what he could so we would do ok on our own. I don’t know why we moved so much I didn’t really care till my mother got sick and wouldn’t go to a hospital she could be quite stubborn. I am twenty three now just had my birth day alone in a camping park under the stars. And strangely happy cause I know my mother is whit my father and thy are watching over me. This night is long and colder then normal the last few mounts my mother had spent her time looking for her reaming family her older brother Rick and her younger sister Adreona. She maid me promise to go to them and tell them in person of her passing and I could not refuse he last wish. This would be harder to do her brother lives in Alaska it will take me awhile but I can walk there or hitch a ride. Her sister on the other had moved to Scotland back to our family roots or so I’m told. This will take some work but I will find them for her.
Which brings me to tonight I maid it to Dallas were exactly I could not tell you just one of there many parks that allow fires to be maid. Of all the nights this last week I have felt like I had eyes on the back of my neck staring at me. I maid the fire high so I could see far into the trees and keep warm on the wet ground. Out of the corner of my eye I saw something some one standing in the thick trees his skin seemed to glow whit light from the fire. His hair long and weight and his skin as pail as snow and yet I could not keep my eyes off of his perfect smile. He came closer and I could see his eyes blood red whit warmth and I only felt at ease not one bit alarmed or afraid as I should have been.
Hello I am sorry to intrude on your campsite I was only tacking a stroll through the woods and caught site of your fire. My I join you for a bit to warm my bones by your fire if you say no I will understand and leave you be. The stranger told me whit a smile
It looked to me like he half bowed at the end when he offered to leave.
No its fine I don’t mind if you stay I would offer you a bite to eat or some thing to drink only I don’t have much to offer. I have a long trip to go and not much to go on please sit an you can share what I have. My mother taught me always to be kind only if your gut told you it was ok and my gut told me it was.
You are to kind my lady thank you I will try not to still your warmth to long. Please do tell me when I out grow my welcome invitation. And as for a bite to eat I have had my fill for tonight all I seek is company I have been alone for to long. The way he spoke maid me feel like my mother was reading me one of her stories of time long ago.
We talked for hours it seemed and he never said his name and I never gave him mine. I watched the fire dance over his skin and his long hair. He seemed out of place at my fire and yet I could not bring myself to ask him to leave so that I could get some sleep. A few times he had offered and I had dragged him back into another long story of my many moves whit my mother and or odd ball jobs. I don’t think I have ever talked so much in my life not even to my mother. He would smile and laugh from time to time. He only looked around my age or may be a year or two older and yet he seemed much older. I lingered on every word that came out of his mouth it flowed like honey. I could see the curiosity in his eyes when he caught me staring at him. Several times he committed on my hair how he thought I a bit odd how my hair reflected silver in the light of the fire. And on my eyes how often they seem to change color as I told my stories. I laughed a little cause that is how I got my name the silver glow from my hair when I was born and my eyes my week point. I couldn’t lie or hide anything from my mother she all ways knew what mood I was in. my eyes betrayed me every time. It was growing late and I couldn’t help yawning and he took this as his sing to leave. I felt sad that he was going for some reason I wanted him to stay this kind stranger who caught my interest and that is hard to do.
Well my fair lady I must take my leave and let you be you have been a vary kind host and I am sorry I keep you sol long from sleep. This time he did bow and it seemed to fit and I smiled and reached out to shake his hand.
Really you could stay longer I don’t mind I could try to stay awake longer I hate having to stop to sleep it slows me down. I do hope to see you a gene before I leave the area I’m on my way to Alaska to see family. I healed my hand out for what seemed an eternity before he shook my hand
My did I still all the warmth from your fire my lady you are cold to the touch. He held my hand trying to warm it whit his hands.
I am always a bit cold and if I may your hands are a bit colder then mine. We both laughed and he let go of my hand
I fought the temptation to fallow after him as he despaired out of site in the woods. I returned to my fire felling more alone then before. Kicking myself for not getting his name or giving him mine. Curling up in my sleeping bag I fell fast asleep. Tomorrow I will have to make it at least one state away heading north west along way to go yet ill get there. The night seemed to get colder yet I didn’t wake to relight the fire I tasted something sweet on my lips. A cold wind on my neck and the smell of blood and in my mind it was all a wonderful dream till I felt the fire burning through me a nightmare now this is better.
I burned for hours fighting not to scream why bring notice to myself and why scare a pore stranger over my silly dream. I only woke when I felt weight less I was being cared. I couldn’t bring myself to open my eyes to see who it was I was just so tired and the pain of the fire burned more now that I am wake. I fought the pain and feel back into the nightmare of my dream to ease the pain . When I woke I was on a stone floor in a cave if I had to guess. The sun was high in the sky so it was more like noon then morning. My throat felt dry it burned whit thrust I was starving hopefully the stranger brought my things or would have some thing to eat. Snapping to reality I looked around and I was alone who ever it was had left me here. Propped next to the back of the cave was my back pack and the rest of my things I grabbed my canteen and drank . The water was warm and tasted like dirt in my mouth and did nothing to ease my thrust.
--The light from the sun creped in the cave for some reason I wasn’t cold and I didn’t need the sun to be able to see every bit of the cave. The light touched my hand I felt the pain as my fingers got hot as if I just stuck my hand in a fire. How could this be? What am I to do now? Why am I alone? Why did he leave me what did he do to me? What is wrong whit me? As the sun set more in the sky It came in to the cave leaving only a little nook untouched from its burning light. I huddled in that nook only big enough for a rabbit till the sun went down and the sky was dark. Out of instincts I built a fire I cooked every thing I had trying to easy the hunger that the thrust had brought whit it. Nothing worked nothing I had and I feared being caught out to long out side of this cave. Were my new enemy would be waiting for me to burn my flesh and me alive. Out of all the people in the world this strange man had picked me. What has he done to me what when will this huger stop what must I do I am so hungry? Midnight came and gone I never once felt my eyes grow heavy never once screamed out in rage. I just sat at the back of the cave waiting for him to return and explain.
He never did come back I waited for a week alone and hungry growing weaker as the hunger grew stronger. I had paced a circle in the floor of the cave for the h*** week I did not sleep just walked round and round. The last night just as the sun went down I heard a noise in side the cave whit me. It was small and I could smell something sweet on the air as it moved I did not open my eyes to see what it was. I lunged for it the fur was soft and the smell was rich my unnatural instances took over and I gored in the animals blood liking my fingers and sucking the blood off my close. Finally the hunger stopped the burn in my throat was gone. Only after I had eaten did I open my eyes to see the small rabbit in my hands I flung the remains of its lifeless body into the fire. I had not once in all my years have taken a life of an animal and now I killed it so easy. What kind of savage am I? I grabbed my bag stuffing my close inside of it and ran from the cave.
My hearing unbelievable I could hear people every were some still asleep in there tents some telling stories by there fire. I noticed the closer I got to the people the burn in my troth came back. And not for one bit did I like the way it maid me feel. How was I going to go see my mothers family now how can I? every ting I smelt people I turned and walked away I don’t know were I was going I didn’t even know if I was still in the same park.
I came to a highway sure enough I was no longer in Dallas I was in Fort Worth. Fallowing the road in to town was a vary bad idea but I didn’t know m way around and I had to fallow the roads. Closing my nose and trying not to breath I got through most of the populated parts. The strong smell from the cars and waste helped to block the smell. In one part of the city I could smell animals vary strongly I fallowed it to the Stock yards.
I could smell the food the people ate and my nose lead me to were they keep the meats fresh and warm. Raw stakes dripping whit blood my mouth filled whit moister dripping from my lips to the ground. I shook my hear in torment the hunger was strong I fought back the new instances to kill the people who looked at me now like I was mad. Fighting the to run fighting the to stay fighting to kill and not go insane. Twitching madly were I stood a voice in the distance caught my ear.
She’s going to lose it she’s going to lose it and we will get blamed were is her maker she is to new ehhhh get her out of here NOW!!!
The voices was like acid in my ears dripping from the mouth of a lady whit a voice of velvet. Then a man whit a funny voice specking in rimes disagreed whit the lady.
Its true she’s new being this she must be stopped. Yet see her hands twitch see her head shake she fights this be true. She is interesting take her out no aside yes she will be to talk and glad for it you will see. This one is not will not killing willingly.
I’ll do it dang it you to just are all talk and you just keep an eye out I smell others around. She got herself in to a mess and were aren’t the only ones moving in on her.
This came from a man whit a deeper voice.
It caught me off guard the felling to run and the hunger to stay were equal I was frozen in place. Looking around the food court I could see a group of four people in the direction the conversation came from. They were staring at me I could tell they were the ones who wanted to take me out as they said. Some one bumped into me and grabbed my arm tugging me away from the crowed food court. I could feel that this person was being way to easy and I was right. As soon as we were out of eye range I was off my feet whit a hand to my neck. I could see two men and one women dressed in ritzy close trying way to hard to fit in. These people had cash way to much to be bothered by me. So what did they want whit me? A tall lady whit long blond hair spoke first eyeing the man who had me hung in the air. He lowered me so my feet touched the ground but he did not let lose of my neck.
I’ll try to be nice my child but you pose us a bit of a problem so I am sorry but you do leave us whit little options. We can not have a new born wandering around a packed city like this unaccounted for. Now my first question to you would be who is you maker and were is he or she hiding there cowardly head?
I have no maker and I am far from a new born my question to you is what have I done wrong? I have vary little money and I don’t tend to stay in this city for to much longer. I travail alone I find for myself so I need no one to account for me. If you don’t mind please let me go and I’ll be on my way tonight and you wont see me a gene. I tried to plead my way out of it but I could tell it wasn’t working. The man who healed me laughed and squeezed my neck harder.
She seems to not to be telling the truth and I don’t smell any one of our kind coming off her close interesting I smell rabbit. And whit that he wrinkled his noise.
The two in the who had not spoke were arguing now on how to kill me whit out making a seen.
Lets just take her father in the ally and rip her apart burn her parts in a dumpster. The short man said.
Or we could burn her whole and watch her suffer I do like that. The young women whit short black hair told him.
The blond women leaned in and smelt my close
Disgusting utterly repulsing your maker did nothing to teach you proper diet my child you must be hungry. When I was as young as you are I would have slated all those humans in a second. She placed her hand on the mans arm
I do not think she will run you can let her go for now. Lets take her to the Prince and see what he has to say about her. She smiled showing her perfect white teeth.
Out of the corner of my eye I could see the other four that were talking about me coming closer.
Now look who we have hear she did seem to drag the out the dirt didn’t she so unfortunate to see you here Steven.
The blond was eying the on who hadn’t talked yet he did not seem pleased to see her in the least. This was looking worse whit every second at least whit the new comers I might get away.
Aurora reached into her bag and pulled out a photo album and handed it to Adreona. This one was different from the on I looked through this one was filled whit pictures of Alaska and her family there closest friends that Eskimos. Child hood memories from six years ago the last picture was her fathers grave up in the hills covered whit snow. We sat in silence for the most part till she asked a question or commented on a picture. She loved the pictures of Ricky and Nile and committed a lot on the larger tan cats the seemed out of place in Alaska.
I really would love to see a cat like this its unique I haven’t seen to many big cats yet never heard of ones like this so photogenic. It hadn’t donned on her yet that she was looking at pictures of Aurora and Nile.
A light rhythm of Aurora’s purring caught Adreona’s attention she looked up from the pictures. Aurora’s ears laid back her eyes were closed and she was far away in a land of snow playing in the fields whit her mother and father. Tears slid down her check and if she had a tail it would have been twitching. I couldn’t tell if they were happy tears or sad ones maybe a little of both. Filliping through the pictures you could see how much Ricky loved Nile and how they both shined whit joy in every picture when she carried Aurora. There was only one were the family was all together right after Aurora was born. After that the pictures were of Aurora and Ricky and the larger tan cat that took her place from time to time. There you could tell how aurora loved to still the spotlight just as her mother before her. Living in her fathers pictures she could see her mother every day and in her mind she was never alone. I didn’t have pictures only memory’s of my father and mother.
You motioned you know werewolf’s may I ask what about Aurora the town would mistake as a werewolf? We Didn’t get a kind greeting when we got into town. I asked
There is talk of werewolf’s in town and hunters who kill big wolfs for that fear and they blame the Slater of there live stalk on the wolves. So when they see out sliders such as yourselves whit long nails and sharp teeth. The keen eyes and the aroma so sweet its cant be real they think werewolf before anything else. As for knowing a werewolf my husband was one and thus my oldest daughter Danyell I don’t know about my younger one Sully she hasn’t shown any sine yet. that’s why I don know how she will reacted to you. Adreaona replied
I see should we leave before she comes home. Aurora asked
No it should be fine just might get a little tricky to get you in the same room whit out some one getting hurt. See turned to me you wouldn’t hurt my daughter would you being a vampire and all?
I haven’t brought any harm to Aurora and she a cat so I think I will have no reaction to harm a werewolf. As I see it she has not harmed me and I will not harm her even if by chance she dose take a bit at me. I will reframe from harming the child. I calmly replied which seemed to ease her mind a lot.
They stayed up till it was almost dawn before they feel asleep by the fire I claimed up to the roof and laid watching the stars fade away and came back inside just as the sun started to shine.
The house was quite spet for the ticking of the grandfather clock in the main hall way. It chimed six o’clock Aurora and Adreona were still fast asleep in the living room. This was when not sleeping got on my nerves nothing to do and I didn’t want to wake them. At least in Alaska I could have explored the country side or worked on the tiny home. I didn’t know when Adreona’s daughters would make it home she really seemed worried about us running into each other. I just don’t understand how it would be a big deal me and Aurora get along just fine. I guess that wouldn’t count she grow up alone and I was and still am vary new we haven’t had time to make enemies. Well ones that or of different blood that is for me I have a few at lest I think I do.
I could hear them on the side walk laughing at first they new they would make it home before there mother woke up. They planed to surprise her and instead they will be the ones surprised. I heard Danyell tell Sully to stay were she was and what ever happened do not go inside. Sully’s heart picked up a beat and was racing faster every step her sister left her side. I could hear what sounded like sniffing coming from out side circling the house and returning to were it started from.
What is it what’s wrong is Ma ok? Sully’s worried voice pleaded for an answer
There’s a blood sucker in there whit Ma and something else I haven’t smelled before. I don’t like it I cant smell Ma I don’t know if she’s ok. I cant run in there alone I don’t know how many there might be I only smell one but there might be more. And that other smell bathers me a lot. Sis we got to get help. Danyell spoke fast and the words were jumbled.
This ant good not at all I have to wake Adreona if they know she’s ok this might work out.
Adreona, Adreona please wake up we have a problem and I need you to wake up fast. Your daughters are home and they won’t come in less they know your ok. She smells us and there afraid I hurt you please wake up please. I begged her to wake
Huh what oh yah I’m up I’m up. She sat up stretching and pulled the covers tight around her as she stood up.
Can you start me some coffee please I’ll go let them know its ok well the best I can that is. She headed for the door and I started for the kitchen this is going to be a long day. I heard the door open and Danyell stiffen in her place ready for attack if need be. And the shy of relief when they saw there mother.
Ma you ok what’s whit the blood sucker smell? Its all over the place I don’t like it Ma. Danyell didn’t relaxes I could her a few growls and the snap of her jaw as she tried to stay calm.
Ma what’s going on? Sully was truly afraid and near tears
It’s ok love really nothing to be scared of just we have a few visitors that I need you to be open mined about when you meat them. Please don’t be scared they didn’t hurt me and they won’t hurt you will see. Come on inside and meat your causes. Adreona’s voice was soft and reassuring.
She held there hands and lead them inside this is going to be fun I smiled and pored a cup of coffee for my Aunt. I thought a nonchalant entrance would be a good start.
Um what do you like in you coffee sugar, creamer, milk my mom just drank it black? I walked in to the hall where she stood near her daughters. Bad move stupid me.
The sound of the snapping woke Aurora to the site of a giant wolf not ten feet from her lunging for me. I dogged the first attack trying not to damage the house the second attack sent me smashing into a wall. Adreona and Sully ran out side and I heard Aurora growling form the other room.
No stay out of this I don’t wont you getting hurt shes not trying to hurt you just go out side whit Adreona. I had to get this wolf to calm down and I didn’t want Aurora to get hurt. The next thing I knew the wolf turned and lugged for Aurora blocking her exist.
I jumped in between them I could feel the teeth glide accosted my stomach. Now I stood in-between to large animals both whit claws flying wild. I through myself in fount of there attacks catching claws accosted my face and arms screaming out in pain. Making sure neither one of them hurt the other I was trapped in between a dog and cat fight not a good place to be. I heard my bones brake and I could feel them trying to mind them self’s just to be broken agene.
Danyell lunged for Aurora and I lunged into her she slammed in to the couch and out the window. My chance to stop this I had to move quick I cant take to many more hits and I will die if this dose not end and then were would that leave them I did not bring Aurora hear to die. I won’t let them kill each other even if that means me dieing to keep them from harm. I could hear Adreona pleading whit Danyell to stop the fighting to change back to talk. Sully clinged to her mother crying and screaming this is what maid Danyell stop her sisters cries. Danyell passed back and forth in front of the house shaking her head a few growls and snarls and grumbled barks. I guess this is a perk to being Gangrell I understood every but of Danyell’s incoherent speech just as well as I understood Aurora’s cat speech.
We don’t want to fight you she as you acted on instanced to fight to protect herself. Please I can not take another fight I cccccaannnt. Last I knew it was dark. I came to and it was night fall a vampire passing out in mist of a fight what a shame I am.
I woke and Aurora was sitting beside me licking my face were she had scratched me earlier. It was already healed and I was almost completely healed. A few bones still loudly snapping back in place I felt bad. When I got up I noticed the house took the most damage it was barley standing one more beam or two and it would have came down on top of us.
Thank you for keeping you word not to harm her even after the pain she cased you. Adreona sat in one of the few remaining chairs next to the fire place.
Sully right next to her still crying and shook up from watching the fight. I didn’t see Danyell I could smell a little she was not hear but she is close by.
I’m sorry I shouldn’t have come hear I did not mean for this to happen please for give me. I took the blame for the house and promised to work out a way to fix it. I took the blame for the fight it was my sent that set her off why did that kind man have to turn me? The phone rang in my bag and Aurora answered it calmly.
Hello Pester yep we found her well um were ok now I think so nop I don’t know when were leaving um I think she needs her rest right now can I have her call Steven in a few she’s not up for long chat right now. I knew this wasn’t going to full Pester she worded around me being hurt but why would a vampire need to rest and why wouldn’t I be up for talking to Steven? This would get his mind to think the worst I tried to sit up and asked for the phone. Just as she handed it to me I heard the snap and the ceiling caved in on me and the last thing I heard was Steven.
Were on our way be there in no time flat hang in there my love click and a dial tone. I was pined one of the beams had pearsed me in the gut I couldn’t move to dig my way out. But I heard them moving the rubble from on top of me the first face I saw was Danyell’s and I smiled.
i thought that chapter would be a good one ty for liking it lol i write as i go and as soon as i finish a chapter i post it its the only story i havent jumped around from beging to end midloe and such if you have any ideas let me know i can work them in as i go along
I must have passed out agene the last thing I remembered was Danyell digging me out of the rubble and Steven telling me he was coming here. I didn’t remember being moved to the floor and I surly didn’t remember the house being empty. I felt stiff my
throat burned just as bad as it did in the cave. I didn’t hear Aurora or Adreona or her daughters I didn’t even here Pesters soothing words whit there twisting meanings. This bothered me to be alone agene after finding the family I was meant to be whit I was alone.
I could feel the pain in my gut and the scratches on my face and limes were still raw. I wasn’t healing why was I not getting better the way vampires should fast as if nothing ever happened what was wrong whit me? Is this why they left me cause I am defective a freak among freaks a reject? I couldn’t stop my mind it was over whelming the feeling I know so long of being alone had been felled and taken away. I saw the sun rise and fall five times and I laid on the floor waiting to die one more time.
Darkness came once more bringing a fremiler smell in the air whit it a light noise and a soft hand on my face.
Drink this my love it will make you strong agene I did not mean to leave you so long I knew you would stay till I returned. Drink pleas it’s the best I can offer you this is why I was gone so long you must drink. Steven pleaded whit me to drink
I could smell the rich blood dripping on my lips I willed them to part letting the blood flow down my throat. Still warm still fresh the feeling in my hands came back and I healed on to the blood source whit all the strength I had. Steven sat me up and curled his arms around me. I didn’t open my eyes I couldn’t bring myself to see what I was ending with every greedy drink this life was that much closer to death. I glad Aurora isn’t here I had just broken my promise to her. The rich smell the over whelming taste and the over powering greed this could only be human blood that I am consuming.
That should do slow down do not drain me dry or I can not help you till I feed agene. You must stop now. He pulled his arm away from my lips and kissed the back of my head running his fingers through my hair. Then over the scratches on my face slowly healing now.
Silly child what were you thinking getting in between them that is no way to fight a werewolf and surely not if its target is a Bastet. don’t worry I went out of my way to keep your promise for you. A week of animal blood I don’t see how you do it so easily I hope it tasted better coming from my vanes then the beast that I consumed.
I missed his laugh
Steven were is every one? Did I leave you enough blood I didn’t drain you did I?
He laughed agene my love after all you have done you worry about me and the others I do not get you. Don’t worry they are fine they packed there things and we shipped them to your home. Aurora wouldn’t have it any other way since she was half to blame for the damage here. He placed his hand on mine and held me whit his eyes letting me know that every thing and every one was fine.
Why didn’t you go whit them you could have easily put me in a crate and shipped me home whit the luggage. I had to laugh the face he made at my comment was one of utter disbelief.
As soon as you are better we will go home. He smiled at me whit that wicked smile he was plotting something.
I feed from him a few more times before he felt I was safe to go home to Alaska. I was picturing the little house packed full of furnisher and people I would gladly stay in the little cave if need be. Aurora called non stop till I stepped foot on the snow. She nearly pounced me back onto the plain. Laughing so hard I couldn’t stand up right.
I’m ok I’m ok really I am. Putting my hands out before she could pounce on me agene
You won’t believe what they have done to my our home it barley looks the same. If they wrecked it I was going to eat them rip hem to shreds. She laughed sept I had no fun its perrrfict simply perrferct.
Now I was curtain they were up to something and change was not always my friend not lately anyways. I closed my eyes as I was told waiting to open them on an unpleasant site. It was the same small house I remembered seeing before we left at first site nothing had changed. I looked agene and I could see that they had added on to the tiny place there was plenty of room now for all of us. The first floor was the same in front a small living room and Aurora’s room and her fathers left the same. Added on to the kitten was a door that lead to a larger living room and Aredona’s family’s place almost the same as it was in Scotland before the slight remodeling. This was a nice surprise till I was told there was more to see they lead me to the attack whit tinted windows and walls full of books a nice quite and dark room that was to be mine. There was of cores rooms for Steven and Pester and a vary lager basement whit all sorts of games and movies and things to keep teens from getting board. Tucked in the back of the basement was a large meat locker to store the quantity of food to feed a growing werewolf and a large cat. Cylinders to store every drop of blood that could be drawn from animal and every thing was maid to look as if we were human. This was more then I could have thought of doing I could not imagine how Aurora sat back and let them do any of this whit out going insane.
The night was coming to an end and soon I would be locked up for mounts on end only coming out if I was covered from head to toe. The thought of it wasn’t as painful this time as it was last summer here the tiny house nearly drove me mad I ran out of books to read. Put all the puzzles together so many times I didn’t need the pictures any more and I could recite every movie word for word I know sad. This summer I would not be alone so maybe it will be better.
Friend or Foe?
I took the night to myself to hunt there was a cove I love to go to and swim wind down. It is fun having company well that ant the right word for it a family sept every one needs alone time. We all have our places me my cove Aurora her tiny cave every one has found some place to retreat to from time to time. I wanted to enjoy my cove as much as I could before summer takes it away from me. I love to swim more now then before now I don’t have to come up for air and I found that catching my pray was just as fun under water.
I laid my head back and floated lessoning to the world around me I heard Danyell howl coming from the house. She was calling Sully in for dinner now that girl was something else. Human plain enough for any one to see sept she understood her sister better then there mother who in every way has taken us all as her own. Sully loved the snow and every bit of the splendors of Alaska she’s the only one who attends public school and she loves it. I’m happy every one is getting along and so far no more problems.
The snow gave me the warning I heard it crack ever so little to light to be anything natural. Not a human or animal of normal making could cross the snow so quite. No one fro the family I would smell them and I didn’t know this smell this was new. I sank under the water watching and waiting. I saw a boy standing at the edge of my cove watching the water I came up my eyes locked on the boy. I have never seen this one before
Are you friend or are you foe? He asked me and tilted his head to the side
If you do not come whit ill intent then I may vary well be a friend in other case we will have to wait and see. What business do you have in these parts? I asked
And the wind blow his sent in my face and I could tell he as not a vampire this brought me worry wolfs do not travel alone most of the time there mate is near by. And if that’s the case if they wanted me dead I would have to run fast to get away from home.
Did I come at a bad time you seem a bit distracted I am looking for a friend of mine. She comes around here from time to time have you seen any like me? He flashed a smile and his teeth gleamed red from a resent kill.
I thought I heard a howl for dinner an caught your sent mixed whit one like me.
I inched my way back out of the water on the other side of the cove.
Yes that would be what you heard sept I am not the meal you seek and neither is any thing in the direction of the howl you heard. Now I have not seen any one that travels through hear like you so if you would let me leave I will keep my eye out for her.
I took a step to the side and he shifted in front of me a larger weight wolf stood in his place his eyes watching my every move. I stood still giving him no sine that I was about to fight him. He shifted his weight from foot to foot sniffing around the cove tilted his head back and howled a hello.
I laughed as Danyell’s hello bought questing curiosity whit it he shifted his head and looked at me.
Yes I heard and yes I understand you.
Is it only the young ones who are so open to others such as me? I sat on my heals my arms resting on my lap.
Tell her your at the cove tell her to come. I wasn’t sure if he trusted me enough to let me leave whit out a fight and if that was the case may be one of his own could persuade him.
His head when back and he howled what I told him I could see he just as much as me wanted another wolf around. This time in unotion there was not one wolf but to replying to hiss howl. This was not what I excepted and I could see the smile on his face grow bigger.
I’m guessing your friend? They would be hear at almost the same time his friend was a little farther away.
This would end bad if it turned into a fight. I told him and he smiled seeing the odds a bit different then he should. He could see three agents one not one on one he hadn’t thought that she was coming to aide me. Danyell close enough to smell he shifted back to human putting his close back on. Clearly not unused to having an auditions and I know Danyell would be doing the same just out of site. She ran up to me and looked me over for any sine that I was harmed.
Are you ok? She asked
Yah I’m good he just got hear and from the sound of it his friend will be hear soon. I stood up and hugged her this got him his mouth hung open and he scratched his head. Clearly not what he expected either. We both laughed and turned to him
This is a truce zone either make one or you will have to leave this land belongs to my family by blood. Danyell spoke her clam to the land we stood on in she was right our uncle bought it years ago and our cousin on left it once.
You share your land whit a leach? What if we fight you for your land one on one those are good odds to me. He smiled a wicked half smile
One howl from me and the odds wouldn’t be one on one there are more of us then you think my friend. You best take your lassie and leave now if you came hear to fight for what’s not your. Danyell boasted like wolves tend to do always inching for a fight it seems.
Yah don’t we wait for your lady friend to get hear before you deices to seal you fate shale we there’s no need for a fight. Danyell shot me a look of disappointment one that told me to hold my tong for a bit.
Yah why don’t we wait for your lady friend to get hear before you deices to seal you fate shale we there’s no need for a fight. Danyell shot me a look of disappointment one that told me to hold my tong for a bit. She stood kinda hunched over just a bit ready to land on all fours if it came down to that. She wore a twisted smile on her face trying not to laugh at a joke only she new the answer to. The boy couldn’t have been older then eight teen and Danyell was only thirteen. He bowed his chest and streached his arms showing he was the bigger wolf. Now I got the joke he stood close to six foot and well Danyell is six foot four whit the way she stood you would never guess that she was hiding two feet. Clinching his fist he stood tall and took a few steps closer eyeing me as if I was lunch.
Lets not wait she’s taking to long do I have your word that the leach will stay out of the fight. He glared at me and then at Danyell
If I tell her to she will she’s not one for fighting any ways. Setp if you do kill me she will kill you all is fare whit that. Danyell smiled
Twisting her feet into a normal stance she stood to her full height a good hand taller the he was. His hands shook and he took a step back we could all hear his heart. It picked up a faster pace he knew he had just bit off more then he could chew.
From the look on you face you changed your mind. She took a set on her heals and rocked from heal to toe.
He went back to were he was standing on the other side of the cove put his hands in his pockets his face low. A mile away we heard another howl his friend will be hear soon his face didn’t change. This was either his bluff or he knew they wouldn’t win a fight whit us.
So were are you from? He twisted his foot into the ice trying to change the topic off a fight.
Why don’t we start whit names and go from there? Cmoming in out of the shadows a girl around my age walked whit ease accosted the snow. Here hair cut to here ears almond colored skin whit sparkling blue eyes.
My name is Kristie whit a K and that’s my mate Jace. Who might you be red? Kristie wasn’t paying no mind to me.
I’m Danyell and she is Lady Silver.
LADY she don’t smell like no lady heck she smell off to me. What was your first take of her Jace? Kristie turned her head to him with and ear still perked in our direction
I cant tell she smells like us and then agene she don’t. She don’t seem like she’s looking for a fight and she hasn’t tried to attack me the whole time we were alone. I don’t know what to think of her of them they seem off. Jace shook his head
It did not come to a fight that night it comes to be that they were intrigued by the way Danyell and myself could stand each other. Kristie wanted proof that the land was indeed ours by blood not just by clam. For this we had to take them home whit us to met the one true owner of the land Aurora. On wolfs word alone did they give me that they would not start a fight. Being a vampire wolfs word meant nothing to me yet it meant a lot to Danyell. On that alone was good enough for me and if they did fight we would have them out numbered and surprised. We left them standing in the snow and went in to worn the others of our company. They were as I suspected curiosa of all the howling Sully was glad to see we were alright. She had cried some when her sister took off whit no word. Steven of cores brought his journal to document every thing as all ways ever so curiosa. Pester and Adreona sat buy the fire place in the larger living room neither seemed to worried
I opened the door and welcomed them in Jace stepped in first sniffing the house whit displeaser.
Do we really have to go in there it stinks to high heaven of them? He wrinkled his nose and took a step back right on Kristie’s foot.
Oh you cults haven’t you grown into your feet yet? Get in there its proof we need and its in there. So yes you lazy bones get off my foot. Kristie had a way for words and a bit of a mean strike. She snapped at his ear as she spoke.
He stepped in hugging the wall ready to run the first chance he got it was as plane as night he didn’t like the place. Aurora brought her photo albums from when her father and mother were both alive before she was born. She laid them out on the table in order of the time they were taken and filled. Twenty odd years laid before Kristie and sure proof that thy bought and lived a great deal of time on this land. Just as Ardeona was puzzled by the big cats so was Kristie.
What kind of cat is this I’ve never see them around here before and I’ve been here lots of times. I do love the little cove were I met your friend here.
She’s my cousin there both my cousins by blood and no the cats aren’t native to this land. And you haven’t seen them cause for one my mom is gone and two I smell you and I go the other way. I’ve seem how dogs treat cats as food and I for one ant food. Aurora shifted the albums in her hands as she picked up each one and carried them to her room. Jace stood whit his mouth open wide it clicked in his head what Aurora meant she ant food.
You mean you’re the cat you and your mom eh that’s a new one for me? Poor Jace he slapped his head so hard he fell on his back side.
Well this is something to think over I hate just giving up my cove I’ve been going there longer. Its good fishing and warm swimming whit the hot spring and all Errr. How’s about I fight you vamp for it since you seem to have taken clime to it. Kristie shot to her feet dancing around like she was air boxing.
She looked silly every one was laughing sept for Jace and Steven to them she meant what she said and it was a challenge neither was willing to let happen. I rolled up my sleeves and headed put side this was going to be fun. Kristie fallowed me wubing her hands she was inching for a fight. Right on her heals Jace grabbed her shoulder and told
No you aren’t going to fight I’m not going to sit hear and let that leach touch you not one hair. He pushed her aside and stepped up to me taking Kristie’s place.
I cant believe you two are going to fight over a silly cove Jace spit and it hit the snow at my feet.
This got to Steven who jumped in front of me like a shield if he fights for her I fight for you.
Oh joy this will be fun to see who’s mate will win mine or yours? Kristie crouched on the feet trilled buy what she had started.
Who’s mate what wait he’s not my mate. It finely donned on me that Steven was acting a lot like a mate would act even the way he talked to me. I shook my head and moved Steven out of the way.
I fight my own fights you sit and watch I was pissed now and I really didn’t want to fight some one that I knew would get hurt. If you want the bloody cove just take the dam thing. I took off whit all of them looking at me dumb founded.
What just happened? Jace stood not even taking one step and looked at Kristie
All I said was my mate fighting her mate who will win and she got all stuffy and took off. Kristie told him sounding just as confused as the rest of them.
Where is she going hope fully not to the Island there are more of us there that’s were we come from? Jace said speaking to Danyell alone.
Who’s going to go after her? Aurora cried I’m not going to I’m not going nowhere near an island of wolves.
Steven had volunteered and Danyell and Pester told him it wouldn’t be a wise idea giving the nature of my leaving. So it ended up being both of them chasing me down to keep me from going to the island were I intended to go. I was already swimming when they caught up to me first Pester then Danyell. Pester grabbed my leg and trued pulling me back the other way the way I came from.
If you go were you do not know you’d end up whit you head snapped off there’s wolves out there. So plainly be you stay here whit me and her the others worry why you run. I know you smell them clearly I do you look-in for trouble to ease your mood. Pester spoke and pulled me at the same time water drowning out half of what he said.
I got free from his grip and swam faster to the island yes I smelled the wolves I fallowed Jace’s sent to here. I figured I hadn’t met any of these wolves and they wouldn’t stop to talk. A vamp on there turf would surly be looking for a fight. I could hear Danyell yelling at me from the shore she was not pleased whit me at all.
You stupid girl of all the things I’ve seen you stand up to you tuck tale and run from some one who loves you. I’m not going to clean up your mess whit those wolves I know how big a bite I can chew and swallow. This is your fight Pester get back here leave here to her fate let the wolves have her. A girl who runs from love deserves to die. She spoke her mind knowing I could hear her. And if I can she know the wolves that a wait me on that small island can hear her as well. Pester did as she asked and turned to leave me to my fate even if death did come his heart would not ache for me nor would those who waited back at Aurora’s home. I have lived with them and maid my self a shadow on the wall as much as I could. Love can not brake the dead and it is wasted on me one who can not feel.
I crawled out of the cold sea and laid upon the sand and rocks staring at the night sky. I could hear the wolves moving in the shadows and smell them getting closer. This is a quite night a good night to rest in peace. I closed my eyes as the came growling and snapping lunging for me. No one spoke not even me I could hear the snaps and feel the brakes of my bones. I did not scream as they ripped the flesh off my arms and legs. Not one went for my head not one tore my limes apart not one went for the kill. I did not fight back I laid there whit my eyes closed and my lips held shut to the pain. Then when there was all but tattered bits of flesh left on me they stopped.
Thank you for this. I whispered as quite as the bress and one tear fell from my eye.
An old voice tinder and soft
Enough this one seeks death and dose not deserve it I smell no evil in this one she is different push her body into the sea. If it is death she truly seeks it will find her if it is her time to die.
Not once did I open my eyes not once did I care if they took pity on me or killed me. When they began to push me into the sea I heard a tiny beat faint but there. The smell of blood gradually got to much to stand it maid me noshes. Who was bleeding I did not attack did the foolish wolves hurt one of there own. This maid me open my eyes I looked at each one know searching for one that was hurt. Nothing not a scratch upon them they stood staring at me. Six wolves eyeing me whit eyes filled whit fear and wonder.
Who bleeds I am sorry if one got hurt it was only me who should be injured not any of you I am sorry?
I reached my hand out and I could feel the warmth running down my arm. My flesh already trying to grow back I could see the damage they have done. Was this why they feared me still. Then I looked closer it was me that bleed it was my blood I smelled. That tiny beat is my own heart what dose this mean.
Hear on the island of wolves I bleed and my heart beats as if I were alive. Is this magic a vampire who is not dead but alive. What cruel trick for the gods to play. As swift as it all came the blood my heart beat it was all gone. Just like that I was a stone healed and dead. I lay upon the sand in one peace as if they never touched me.
