🌟 TWISTED GIFT COVER REVEAL 🌟

COMING SEPTEMBER 21, 2018!

Being the new leader of the light fae really puts a dent in your post-grad plans.

Aurora, once a snarky business major, struggles to adjust to fae life—and the diet of human energy that comes with it. A change made worse by the overwhelming ability to feel the emotions of everyone around her, especially when she can barely manage her own.

Agreeing to work with her dark fae counterpart, Tristan, in an attempt to bring peace between their people is a painful reminder of how strong they are together. Even still, Aurora fights the urge to keep her distance. She needs to be sure what she feels for him is real, and not a result of the former light fae leader’s manipulation as a part of his plan to eliminate Tristan.

Aurora thought she’d encountered the worst thing since early morning lectures when she stumbled into the world of the fae. She’s about to find out that they may not be the most twisted creatures out there.

Chapter 11
Oliver
I took my time getting ready for talking with the leader. So much has happened since yesterday. I went out for a run after I drove Serena home. I caught a few mice and a rabbit as a snack. I have never had much time to just enjoy my surroundings. My mansion that I share with Tolfin is in the woods. The least I could do is change and run. Daydreaming about being a wolf when it is not time to change is a past time I enjoy.
Tolfin spoke waking me out of my memory, “Dude are you ready to meet the leader?” I stopped fooling around, and I went with Tolfin to see the leader.
We drove to the leaders house. He has a nice neighborhood set in Somalia drive named after the goddess of wolves. The leader lives in a mansion as usual.
We pull up to his driveway and park the car. I get out and walk to his door. I knock it opens and we go in. We met in the living room it was all blue and green the way the female alpha decorated it. Nice scheme, but not to my taste. I sit down in one of the chairs. The leader in a bad moody already not good. Tolfin sits next to me, and the leader spoke, “So I hear you guys have found the girls we have been looking for.” I nod and proceeded to tell him what happened. After telling him the tale he gets silent for a moment. “You now realize what this means don’t you? Being tied to a vampire and a Skylon or Waterlon would make the pack stronger. It would make werewolves in other packs fear us. I think that would be a good idea.” He looked at the chair or throne that werewolves over the ages sat in. He continued, “I am ordering you to bond with them. They are becoming part of the pack.” He gave us a smile, “I know you know what this means. They will be able to defeat the werewolf hunter no problem.” I agree and we got to the vault with the rituals. We get out the ritual to make a few humans a part of the pack. Except they are not humans so we might have to make a few changes. Everything set for this weekend. We return home and I go to bed and fall asleep easily.
Serena
Waking up was not an easy task today. I get ready for school. I am still thinking about the events that have happened so far.
I rub my eyes being up later last night. I saw Jason who told me some interesting facts. The ice cold babe trio is the werewolves play things that kind of explains it. They are sluts though I was shocked. If I ever go to the leaders house I have a chance of running into them Joy!
I am fully dressed with my backpack ready so I go downstairs to join my adopted mom for breakfast.
After making a plateful I sit down and begin eating. Only to hear the dreaded question I did not want her to ask, “Where were you last night?” She asks she wore a red shirt, blue jeans, and a blue jacket with an insistent tone in her voice. I reply coolly with, “I was with Crystal and we were studying. She nods and says, “Okay just tell me the next time you go out.” She left it at that and I breathed a sigh of relief. After all what am I supposed to tell her?
Mom the reason why I was so late is because I was caught sneaking or trying to break in a house. I did that to find out information about a few new guys at school. They caught me, but the reason why they did not call the cops is because they need me to help them stop a werewolf hunter. I am a Skylon my best friend is a Waterlon, and we have to bond ourselves to a werewolf and a vampire to kick some ass. Oh and a ritual so I can come into my full power. Yeah once I utter a supernatural thing she will call then men in white coats faster then you can say oh shit!
Breakfast done I go back to the bus stop. Crystal is there ahead of time to talk about the ritual. She said, “We still need to go over today. I know we are suppose to do a ritual that enables you to come into your power. One that enables you to come into your power. One that would change your life permanently or temporarily binds you to a werewolf.” When she repeats it the consequence finally hit I am like why.
The time to act like a kid vanishes though. I have to help them though I wonder how deadly the guy is anyway. “So lets go over the ritual again.” She went over it, and it requires vampire and werewolf blood. Then I have to give them mine then the elements are called in.
The ritual seems easy to do. As we were discussing it Sonya Sanrio came up to us, “What happened to Dante?” She replied coolly,”We broke up because he is a dick to me. He even cheated on me with another girl that is not all though. The next day he ended up in an insane asylum for thinking he was a werewolf.” I laughed, “At least he got what he deserved.” I rolled my eyes. “Wow he must be seriously deluding himself if he believes that.” She nod, “I am at another high school now, but I just wanted to tell you bye because you warned me about him ahead of time and I thank you for that.” Then she walked away leaving me relieved, and I now have one less asshole to deal with now. The bus came, and we both go on sitting at our usual seat. Silence ensured as the bus made its way to school. We get there and make our way inside.
I get to my locker only to run into the trio bitches. Just a great way to start the morning with the bitches.
The sluts as usual dressed in their finest slut gear complete with nipple poking out shirts, slutty mini skirts that show their asses and come fuck me heels. Terry, Amberlynn, and Sarah lee Robinson just great. Terry comes up and says, “Oh, look it’s the trash twins. I thought they took you guys out a few hours ago.” Here is me, I really do not care what you have to say. You suck at comebacks. You think the world revolves around you, and you have to be the center of attention. You tell people mean stuff about me when they really do not care, and they do not remember you afterward. Who is pathetic now? I have more important matter on my mind then your childish high school bullshit. You say I am stuck on the past, and you try to compete with everyone. You break friendships apart and cheat on boyfriends. You complain all the time. You’re an ugly drama starter and I do not care whether you live or die. You can’t even think of a good name to call me. Bitch is that the best you can do? If so I feel sorry for you. You’re a waste of time talking to.”
I turned my back on her not really caring about talking to her or dealing with her. She just wants attention anyway, and I have far more important things to deal with then a piece of trash like her.
She has other plans though, “Why you little bitch I ought to have my lover Voldy kick your ass.” I reply with a whatever tone since I was over her horse shit, “He needs me, and I am far more useful then you bitch. I bet you he thinks you’re a palytoy that is it he probably does not care whether you live or die you dirty whore so fuck off you slut. Do not even think about replying because I can sleep peacefully knowing you are going to get what is coming to you if you keep being such a horrible person.” She cries and runs away I doubt I will have to see her in class because she is a weak bitch. She skips school so much I doubt she will make it to graduation. I am just laughing at her I stopped caring about her bullshit because I really do not let it get to me. She goes out with certain people just to piss of her dad, and she is in the hospital a whole lot because the doctors keep thinking she has terminal illnesses when they do not understand she is that way because it is all in her head. I laugh at people like her. The people so obsessed with drama that they have to be mean to people to think they gain power when in reality they mean nothing.
I am not worried people like them always get what is coming to them.
I go to my first period class and the announcements come on it seems like hours before they stop. Class begins and ends. The day goes on and on until finally we go to the bus loop.
Oliver catches up to us, “you guys were supposed to come with us to our car. I forgot to tell you that and we were supposed to pick you guys up this morning, but we forgot because we were running late. Sorry about that.”
We followed him back and got into a red jeep! Yay!
“How was your day today?” I asked Oliver.
“Good not as boring as I thought it would be. The only part I did not like was the bitch Terry in my class. She was my partner in theater.”
I got jealous my mortal enemy spending time with him and not me? Ahhhh.. Stupid feelings for him, and I am beginning to like Jason as well. I had nothing to say I kept silent.
Crystal spoke, ”Well Tolfin looks like we are the only ones that had a good day.” He smiles at her, “True I guess I am occupied about what is going to happen. Not to mention Tony is joining the bond.”
Oliver
It hits me that I am going to be tied to a vampire and a girl that is a Skylon. Wow. My life is going to change then after today it will no longer be the normal werewolf day. I will have two other souls to deal with now. I actually hate that I do not have a choice, but I would rather it be me then any other.
A week ago I would never have known Skylons existed I would never have thought I would be in this position. I think I am falling for her. Not good Shit!
A human girl is not worth all the trouble I went through with Sarah. All those calls I had to make just so we could hang out. It was a hassle really.
I have to be tied temporarily to an assholish bloodsucker trying to move on her. Fucking Italians and their bullshit. I bet you he is just trying to get into her pants and suck her dry.
I wonder what Skylon blood tastes like. Does it taste salty and metttalic or sweet like the finest champagne?
The ritual was pretty cool too. The time was coming soon, and all three of us would get power beyond our control.
All of these thoughts going through my head like busy bees. They all stop when I realize we are there.
We all get in my house to prepare for the rituals. I make sure everyone is in the room when I make this announcement. Everyone ssits down so I say, “I did more on the ritual and the bond is not permanent it is temporary. I do not think we have to worry about it being permanent.” Everyone breathes a sigh of relief because that seems like it is too close to marriage for my liking. I am not ready for that at all.
We had to wait for a certain time for it to begin. Now it was only a matter of seconds.

Chapter 12
Serena
A crash got our attention it was so sudden that we just stood there until something knocked Tolfin down. That is when all hell broke loose, and before I knew it I was running away with Crystal trying to get away from whatever was chasing us.
Vanta Sandy was the one chasing us. I could tell by the fact I heard him say, “Die you werewolf abominations! Die!”
Oliver runs ahead of us and opens an awesome secret passage way. Cool! Aww.. the asshole had to interrupt my ceremony. Adrenaline ran through me, and my heart is racing from the running.
I laugh to break the tension, “So Crystal that was fun. I guess the guy is still terrorizing the people upstairs.”
“maybe,” She looked down at the floor,
“I am worried about Tolfin though, and the vampires too. I hope Tony will make it.”
I got worried I did not see Jason anywhere. Thankfully they appeared a few minutes later. They were fine, but they had a few scratches here and there. Yay! The question was though what the hell happened?
I turned to Jason, “What happened?”
“Well, Vanta Sandy broke something. Then a few of his cohorts attacked us from behind.”
“We won that is the important part. They had a whole lot maybe 6 guys, but we could take them. They were weak humans after all.”
I sighed in relief that no one was hurt. We go out of the vault which was an empty room with a bed, and a few other pieces of furniture. It was like a bomb shelter.
I was going to get out of the hall when someone put something over my mouth. I could not breathe it felt like something was smothering me. I blacked out.
Oliver
I thought Serena came back with us. I am pretty sure she was right behind us. A sick feeling began twisting in my gut, and I began searching for her. Tolfin was searching for Crystal too. It looks like they both disappeared. I got Jason, “Any luck finding either of them? I sniffed everywhere and after a while their scent just disappears. The funny thing is it is in a spot that is not near anywhere.”

Chapter 13
Serena
God, do I have such shitty luck. Why do these stupid things keep happening to me? Not only did I get kidnapped, but I was stupid enough to think I was safe. I should have been suspicious, and thought something was up.
Apparently when I get knocked out not only do I not go to sleep, but I get kicked out of my body as well. I also get captured by the asshole trying to kill us.
I am in a cell and crystal is across from me. The walls are white, and I am in a metal barred cage with a bad paint job. There are still clumps of paint on the walls. Kind of like a jail cell or a murderers dungeon.
Instead of freaking out though it is now time for me to assess the situation. Crystal is here right across from me.
I am asleep or my body is. I have no idea about what happened though. I am guessing Vanta Sandy knocked me out, and he put me in a cell so the ritual is not complete, and so we will not be in his way so he can carry out his evil plan. That is what I heard from him at least. Wow.. this astral projection thing is awesome. I am sitting actually standing in front of him. He looks like a dork.
Greasy black hair, beady black eyes, short and very nerdy. White shirt and jeans with dorky glasses thick framed, and he has a voice that sounds like he smokes too much. This is the guy the werewolves are afraid of? A guy who looks like he is more comfortable in a computer store chain smoking then planning a plot to kill werewolves. Seriously is this some kind of joke?
I hope I am on a tv show with cameras. Someone should come out and just say just kidding. Now here is the real guy. No? Oh well.
I look around the captors place to get a better view. Or a better sight of the layout. Key cards are required. Cameras are everywhere thankfully not in the bathroom. Hand scans are everywhere and guards up the ass. Joy this looks like a covert operation. This thing must not have been easy to build. I forgot to mention the loads of computer terminals.
I am not freaking out because I know someone will come and get us. I hope to keep calm because it will be no good if I panic. So, I explore the place, and try to stay calm. It looks as if there is no hope. I spot a weapon lab and a chemical one. I see training rooms, and a big library. There are even places where they sleep looking at the place, and exploring was very helpful especially because I never got caught.
I thought about my body, and went back in. I sat up still groggy from the drugs, and I looked over at Crystal who was pacing around in the cell across from mine. She looked over at me, “Hey I was not sure if you were up. I did not want to wake you in case you were sleeping off the effects of the drugs he gave us.”
“Okay well I am alright. The drugs are out of my system.”
She nodded, “Good to know the question now is how do we get out of here.’
I looked over at the guards who had a blank face, and acted very guardlike by scanning everything in sight. They are big and muscled and looked to be ex-military. Great! I guess they would not pay attention to me even if I flashed them. Stuck here I have no idea where I am either. I wonder if Oliver is looking for me yet. I put my head down, and lay on my bed thinking Oliver where are you? God, I am so lonely right now.
Oliver
She got kidnapped by Vanta Sandy. We reviewed the camera tapes, and sure enough it is him drugging them, and disappearing through a trap door. Our tech guy Jordan is working on their location. The moments are going by very slow, and I am getting more worried every moment we do not find her.
Finally, we get a hit that takes place in underground Star Street. We have finally pin pointed their location. Volderius in nowhere to be seen though. He is probably with the alpha female leaving me in charge of the operation. Tolfin was with me along with Jason and Tony. We gathered some weapons and headed out. Now it was only a matter of getting a map of the layout, and soon we were on our way there.
Serena
After the pity party I talked with Crystal. Since I know it would be stupid to talk about escaping in front of the guards. I looked around to find something to knock them out with. A pipe was conveniently laying around, so I looked at the pipe, and it moved I lifted it up, and smacked the guards in the head with it good enough to knock them out. Once that was done I saw the key lying on a hook next to the door. I moved the key and it went to my hand. I unlocked the cells and told crystal about the layout.
We came up with a plan. We would go out the door and she would freeze anyone in our way. Any terminals we come across would be hacked into. We made our way into the core of the facility. Freezing anyone in our path. Adrenaline running through me driving me to keep running, and I tried to keep up with Crystal. Things were going good until an alarm blared sending me into panic mode.
The room we entered immediately closed off, and Vanta Sandy caught up with us. Again you asshole I wanted to say. I kept my mouth shut, kept a blank face, and prepared for what would come next.
Oliver
We were going through the place dodging guards and kicking ass. I took a hold of one guy snapped his neck and I kept on moving. The vampires are right along with Tolfin and me doing their share of carnage as well. Going past rooms with guards trying to get in our way I am desperately trying to find my love to make sure she is okay, and keeping her safe is my priority ever since I have found my soul mate and going past more rooms searching for the two girls one who I am friends with the other I love.
Then we get to a closed door. No sign of Vanta Sandy or the girls anywhere else. I break down the door, and I find Vanta Sandy in front of him stood Crystal and Serena. I don’t think I react especially when the girl is mine, and has been mine since I first laid my eyes on her.
I attack Vanta Sandy bringing him to the ground. I don’t let him speak at all. He can’t speak anyway because I am choking him. Turning blue from it, and I want to finish him off, but Tolfin pulls me off him and says, ”Volderius wants him alive not dead. We both saw this facility and this is not the only one either.” I look up at him and say, “If it would me you would already be dead by now.” He scowls at me and the backup werewolves take him away. I look at Crystal and Serena with frightened looks on their faces, “I am not sorry for doing that,” I look at both of them, “I should have killed the guy after what he did to you guys. I am a wolf. Iprotect what is mine, and I will kill when necessary without mercy of remorse especially if certain people are in danger.” I looked at Serena, “I do not think like you at all. When someone like him tries to hurt the people I care about. I really do not want them to live I want them to die so they will no longer be a threat to their safety.”
After that I turn my head and walk back. Tolfin puts Vanta Sandy in cuffs. Then in a black tuck that had a cell in the back, and I went in the front to make our way to the leaders house.
Chapter 14
Serena
It is a good thing Oliver was there, but after what happened with Vanta Sandy I am not sure I want him around me. Not right now. Before Oliver arrived when Vanta Sandy cornered us I thought we would not make it out alive. My mind flashed back to all the things I would miss, and the people I never got to say goodbye to.
If I died that day I would have never graduated at all. It would break my moms heart for a policeman to come to her house, and inform her that her one and only daughter is dead. I thank my lucky stars I only got scratched up, and that no real major damage was done. I am sitting in a limo with leather seats. Jason is sitting next to me holding me, comforting me I melt in his arms because he makes me feel that good. Dressed in all black with his Italian accent. His blondish-brownished red hair and hazel eyes.
A real looked in my eyes his accent not as deep as some Italian ones. Just a light accent that makes me feel safe. I could have lost him, and never have seen him again. I hate admitting this, but there are things I could like about Jason or Oliver. Crystal was sitting in the seat across from me her head buried in Tony’s chest.
I could tell she liked him. I could tell she had more then friendship feelings for him. Holding his hand like he was her food, water, air like if she let go she would fall into despair. She loved being with him she said as much when we were in the cell, and she thought that I could not hear her. Her eyes were closed enjoying his company.
I admit to enjoying Jason I grabbed his hand, and put my head on his shoulder his body was warm for a vampire. I asked for sheer curiosity sake, “So, how did you guys find us?”
“The werewolves tech guy did. They notified us when they found your location.” I yawned and rubbed my eyes that were starting to go bleary.
We go to my house, and I said goodbye to Jason who said, “Sweet dreams I was happy we got to you in time. I do not want to loose you.” Then he kissed me, and the whole world narrowed to just us. I saw lights and stars and fireworks, everything you could think of or imagine just in that one kiss.
After a few minutes he reluctantly pulled away and left. Leaving me in shock. A hot vampire kissed me, and it was amazing. I slowed myself down. I got ready for bed and was fast asleep.
Oliver
I went to the leaders house with Vanta Sandy in tow. It’s a good thing we tied him up. Now it was time for an interrogation. We needed to find out all about his facility. The leader wanted to know everything about his operation. I was standing with Tolfin in a little room that we used for interrogating. He was sitting in a chair in the middle of the room. His hands and feet were chained as well so he could not get away. A defiant expression was on his face, “So did you really think I can’t get out you stupid wolf?” I laugh, “Your hands and feet are tied. That material is pure steel are you stupid enough to think you can?”
“My henchman are finding a way to get me out when I do you will be sorry.”
“Was that before or after I killed their sorry asses?”
I gave him a sadistic smile, “I especially had fun tearing the throat of Nina. I am sure you remember her blonde, big-boobed, stupid blue eyes that looked at me with a worshipful gaze.”
That pissed him off, “Why I ought to kill you for getting rid of my nina.”
The leader came in making me smile at him one more time before the questioning began.
“How did you get those girls and why are they so important to you?”
“As if I am going to tell you. You’re a fucking freak.”
“Maybe but you’re the asshole that is trying to kill us and failing horribly I might add.”
“It’s a damn shame I did not kill those two bitches it would serve you right too.”
“Enough with this horseshit. I will ask you a few questions and you will answer them.”
Then he used his mind to cause pain to him. I knew that feeling. His power sends a knock to your nervous system which feels like being shocked from the inside out. Vanta Sandy screamed breathing hard when it was done.
“What did you do to me you freak?”
“Sent a volt of electricity through you that will happen again and again if you do not answer my question.”
He even got scared a little which made me happy, but it must have hurt him if he is now willing to cooperate.
“Fine I will answer your questions you stupid dickhead.”
Now the leader smiled, “Why did your guys try to eliminate the girls what are they to you?”
“I do not really care for them it is the sorcerer that does. He is paying me to capture them not kill them. I was not trying to kill them just knock them out. The sorcerer wants their gifts, and he cannot steal them if they do the ritual.”
Oh good to know that means we need to do the ritual, so he cannot steal their powers.
We got all the important stuff out of him like his facility. He was training more people like him. The thing we should do next is get the girls into their powers. After that destroy the facility. Vanta Sandy also wound up telling us that there are various relics of power throughout the region. The only way to destroy them is use the Skylon and Waterlon to locate and use or destroy the relics.
These are great relics of power if the sorcerer gets his hands on them who knows what kind of chaos he will cause.
That is another thing we have to do. We have a whole lot of stuff to do, now we have to have their help first.
Interrogation done I went back to my mansion to rest. I think we have a whole lot to do, so much it feels like there is a weight on my shoulders.
I turned on the tv realizing the world knows about creatures also, but we still hide.
The whole point ion giving us our own region is so that we can live in peace, and not hurt humans. I see news about a club called Spydeco apparently a few vampires were biting illegally on a patron.
A civil rights bill passed making it illegal to bite people with out their permission.
Werewolves have a no changing on public property law. Laws written to protect werewolf citizens. There is still some decrimination around. I do not care though. The humans really do not matter to me. I see them as prey that is all. The whole lot of them could die and I would not care. The humans are a stupid species that deserved to be wiped out. I turned off the tv pissed yet again because of the news. I go to sleep anxious about tomorrow.

Chapter 15
Serena
Bleary and not ready to go to school I get up to face school anyway. I get dressed in my usual ensemble after I shower and then brush my teeth.
My mind was far away in the clouds stuck on what happened yesterday. The ceremony got interrupted and I got captured by the big bad. It took 4 hours to find me and then get out unbelievable stuff. I thought that only happens in movies and not real life boy was I wrong.
Another day and another chance to finally do the ceremony. Oliver called and told me that it was planned for today. I sat through first period and second was good except for these two obnoxious bitches. I saw my friend, and I waved to her. I sat at my usual seat and nothing pisses me off more then eavesdroppers. After I talk they continue their conversations how pathetic. Its like they have nothing better to do then get in other peoples business it is funny. I really do not take that stuff seriously.
The rest of the day went by in a blur, and before I knew it the time to do the ritual was near. I got ready and prepared to change my life forever.
Oliver
My nerves were catching up to me realizing what was coming up next. It was the ritual all of us were gathered in a circle. Dressed in nice clothes that looked like we were going to the prom instead of a ritual. There was tension in the room. I was not surprised though about that we were at the leaders house in a sacred room. The resident shaman named Salina led the ceremony. There was an alter set up with the book in the middle on top of the altar was a knife and a chalice with red, blue, yellow and green candles. I guess nothing that looked satanic or witchcrafty. There were salts and water bowls. A bowl of earth, and sage which was used in cleansing the air of negativity. The time to do the ritual is in a few minutes which built and built until finally it was time to start.
Serena
We held up our hands as the witch took salt and walked around the room in a circle. While she was doing it she lit the sage and walked around the room with it. She lit all the candles in the room, and the smell of sage was blowing through the room. All the negativity was wiped out. It cleansed every inch of the room. After that was done she went back to the altar and opened the book. Everyone had their eyes on her because she had a commanding gaze and presence. White hair like snow and electric blue eyes dressed in a white robe that is roman or geek style. She was really a sight to gaze at. She spoke in a honeyed commanding voice, “We are gathered here to bring a Waterlon and Skylon into their power. Two beings who will be tied temporarily to a werewolf and a vampire, while they are bonded they will absorb some of their abilities. Four lives will be changed forever after this, and now let the ceremony commence.” She took a knife off the table. “Oliver and Jason step forward.” They both went to the center where the altar was she grabbed their arms, and made a cut on each of their wrists. Their expressions did not give anything away though as the knife bit into their skin. Blood welled from their cuts making a steady drip which was flowing into the goblet. “Step forward Serena.” I stepped forward, and shuddered I held back a scream as the knife bit into my skin. The wound bled into a separate cup. She put the cups on the altar, and then two more cups materialized on a second separate altar. That effect was cool like something out of a Disney World ride like the Haunted Mansion ride at Disney magic kingdom. There is a table that materializes out of nowhere. Invisible strings anyone?
She got Tony and Tolfin to step forward, and made cuts on them which went into the cup followed by Crystal. It surprised me when she had an expression on her face like she enjoyed it.
I think she likes pain, and that is one fact that I did not know about her. After all that was done the magic started going like a force through the room. A circle surrounded us. “From this day forward you all are bound by blood, drink from all the cups to finish the ceremony, so this part is complete.”
I took a sip of Oliver and Jason’s cup grossed out they did the same to mine, and Crystal along with Tony and Tolfin did as well. Then I drank from Crystals and she drank from mine. They tasted interesting not coppery at all instead it tasted of the forest, and the elements it had a primal feel to it. It was syrupy and sweet and Crystal tasted like the beach and ocean. There was a kick to it like a spicy after taste.
I wanted to say eww gross, but I could not do it because it tasted good. It made me wonder if I lost my mind as well then I remember the ritual. The liquid all gone, and we wait to see what happens next.
There were four candles not lit, and she lights them on the altar saying a few words I did not recognize. The room was filling up with more pressure waiting for something building.
Suddenly the earth shakes and a blinding light binds all of us together. A force so powerful it feels like a warm safe blanket is enfolding us. Any tension I had melted away, and the world shifted. In that moment I was no longer ordinary Serena Starfire. I became a true Skylon that had come into her power.
Crystal was glowing as well her hair turned pure gold. Her eyes were now an electric powerful blue. She had blue streaks on her face like the marking of a warrior. The elements came to the ceremony also. A blue, green, red and yellow play of living breathing energetically colors. A pretty sight to see. It faded though and the ceremony was over. Now time to get dressed, and discuss the next plan.

Chapter 16
Oliver
Skylon blood still lingered in my mouth a little. It tasted like sea water and the forest. My arm stung from where I got cut. The ceremony was a beautiful sight. I can now feel serena in my head like a bright light. Jason feels like a dark dream. I am bonded to them now. I know where they are, what they feel, and some of their thoughts.
The vampire was hungry that power must have been strong for him to need blood now.
Great just what I needed to know the thoughts of a blood sucker. Uhh.. The jerk is after Serena too. On the other hand it is good to know the heads up now. I can be one step ahead of him and beat him to his own game. May the best vamp or were win. I got dressed in my usual clothes. The ceremony was over, so now it was time to deal with the other issue. We had to go back to the base kill all the were hunters in training and blow up the facility.
I am at my house now with the rest of the gang in the living room. I set up a fire to get some warmth inside the cold place. I lit the logs on fire, and waited until the embers kicked up making a red glow in the room.
I sat down on the couch tired because the ritual took a whole lot of energy out of me. I looked around the room noticing everything, and that everyone was just as tired as I was. Weary and ready to go to bed I just said, “Lets do the planning tomorrow because we are all tired, and I doubt we would get anything done in this state anyway.”
Everyone agreed and left leaving me with my thoughts buzzing like bees at a beehive. I went to bed certain why I wanted everyone to go. I’ll be damned if I deal with Jason now. I slept..
Serena
I woke up glad it was Friday. I just had to suffer the rest of the day through school. Mom was at the table and we were eating breakfast. She was silent like maybe she was thinking of something, “ I know you spend long hours at a friend’s house studying for tests, but there seems to be a test every day. You’re not on drugs are you?” She asks intently. I laugh, “No why would I be when I see what it does to people? I watched grandma go into shock, and have a stroke with it.” She says, “Okay I just want you to have a good education, and get into college. I do not want to see you fail, and drop out like some kids your age do.”
“I am not going to end up like them I am way too smart for that.”
Breakfast done I said good bye and left.
Crystal was already there a bit earlier than usual. I ask, “What is up?”
“ I got here earlier so we could discuss a few things before we go to school. My powers are awesome also. We are both immune to bullets and knives. We can levitate and I have super strength. The coolest part is that I can control it.” Sweet ass kicking here I come. They would be so cool to practice. Wow… I never noticed how bright it is outside.
“Hey Crystal how long does it take for our bodies to adjust?”
“A few days I have to warn you there are other effects besides these. You get enhanced hearing, sight, taste, touch, and smell. You might have a taste for blood because of the vampire bonding. You will also be able to be turned into a wolf.”
Awesome.. Though the vampire part might cause some issues. The people start coming to the bus stop, so crystal and I shut up for now. The bus arrives we get on and head out to the school.
Oliver
It was a pretty day as Tolfin and I head to school. The effects are pretty neat. I can feel Serena who is on the bus with Crystal. Jason is on his way as well. Today after school we are meeting back at my house to discuss the plans next. We are going to do it on the weekend. The reason is so it will not interfere with school it is a three day weekend which is cool.
I had realized the bond caused some issues when I moved a spoon just by thinking about it. I am also came to the conclusion that I am invulnerable to knives. I cut something up the knife slipped, but it did not cut me. The way the knife was positioned I would have thought it would do a little damage, but the skin is smooth to the touch. Hmm.. I even have a desire for blood that goes beyond being a werewolf. There will probably be other effects I just have to see what happens. We arrive at school, and park the car in the school parking lot. We get out of the car and head to the building. My vision gets weird for a split second. Everything turns black except for the people who have blue and green lights surrounding their body. I can even smell their blood pumping through their veins. Interesting yet annoying. I will have a little chat later with Jason in fact the three of us will have to discuss the repercussions of the bond.
“Tolfin how long are these effects going to last?”
“I have no idea dude.” I told him about all the effects that were happening. He was silent, “oh wow the same effects are happening to me bro.”
God dammit stupid bitch Skylon. I am stuck with a bond thing. We have Vanta Sandy at least. I got to execute him this morning.
I took care of his body so no one will ever find out. After a few days the leader wanted nothing to do with him. He sent me to execute him and dispose his remains. It is a good thing to. After what he did to Serena he deserved it. I think about the feel of her. The way she acts how incredibly sexy she is. It grows on you though. Bonded to her I could tell she was in the building. While I was day dreaming about her I realized I was in school. The hallway was crowded with people. The smells of the students jammed into the hall was enough for me to wish for nose plugs. Everyone was loud with noise I was following the crowd that had gathered around to see what was going on. Jason was facing off with Terry the resident bitch, “No for the 100th time I am not interested in you. You are an ugly whore.”
“You would choose that stupid brunette who is a total piece of trash instead of a cutie like me?”
She looked at him with wide eyes. I almost threw up in my mouth a little she is an ugly bitch not cute at all with an ugly interior.
“Maybe you should shut the fuck up, and stop making fun of her you blonde slut. She does not stab people in the back, or spread rumors like you. She is better then you in every way.” I got up in the middle of it, and walked up to her. “Maybe you should keep your legs closed at least she has not fucked half the football team.” I argued. I am honestly getting tired of her bullshit. She is a pain in everyone’s side. The two of us ganging up on her made her back off, but I said, “That is right run away you cowardly bitch. Say that again and you will be sorry.” Jason held me back from running after her. I was greatful for that because there was no telling what would happen if the worst went down. I saw Serena with a greatful look in her eyes. She hugged me and said, “Thank you I was really tempted to beat her ass.”
“Glad I could save you the trouble,” I replied glad she hugged me.
‘Honestly if it was not for Jason that stupid bitch would have regretted it by now. I fucking hate her.” That is my feisty girl. Not a whore or a drama filled whore. A girl who has standards and morals. I like her more and more. Geeze that bitch terry causes trouble. It almost made me think about telling the boss to kill her. Oh well that problem done I go to my first class after saying bye to Serena.
God these humans are fucking annoying pieces of gossipy shit. Lieing to each other, backstabbing, stealing each other’s boyfriends, and spreading rumors about each other.
Don’t they realize it would bite them in the ass later down the line? No, because they are stupid idiots that have to always be the center of attention. I heard one girl say to another girl, “Don’t waste your breath it is not worth it.” God how pathetic she also had the nerve to eaves drop in her conversation like a pathetic child and said, “Don’t let me hear my name come out of her mouth.” The girl was crying after that. I took note of it. I found the girl was named Peggy sue.She will be fun to mess with. If she wants to be mean I know just the person to talk to. Scarlet Nightshade a notorious vampire around our world who has killed as many as 17 high school bullies, so if anyone can kill without being found out it is her. She will only do it if the case is really mean and nasty, and this is one of those cases.
I kept that in mind while I wrote what happened down on paper. I sent a text message to her cell during lunch. She replied with an ok. That bitch will die making me happy inside. No one should do that to a person because it is rude, mean, and immature. Stephan Silorn is her boyfriend and a very good friend of mine. He was the one who turned her. The day went by in a blur fast again. I met Serena and Crystal in the parking lot. We headed to my house Jason and Tony were meeting us there. We get there and head in.

Chapter 17
Serena
The whole situation with Terry forgotten I put my thoughts on more important matters. That bitch does need to shut up though. I sit down exhausted from hearing the teachers and kids talking. The smell of the fire was peaceful with the burnt log smell. Then we all gather in the entertainment room instead because a board is set up discussing the layout. Crystal and I give them an overview of what we saw all the rooms and security stuff. We ate dinner after a couple of hours of planning. We would get them tonight so we can be done with it quickly. I called mom and told her me and Crystal would be staying at a friends. She said, “Okay hun see you tomorrow.” She hung up.
We gathered at olivers car to discuss last minute plans, and headed out. On the way there I got nervous because we were heading to a place that was dangerous, and for all we knew they could have changed security measures. I was determined though to be brave.
I reminded myself that we had to take care of this. There was no way we could avoid destroying this.
We went past hills and the sky was blue with endless clouds. A pretty sight with flowers sprouting up. That no way reflects what is about to take place. I was expecting rain, thunder, and lightning guess not. Oh well. It was a few minutes more before we got there everyone was silent. Oliver contemplating, Jason was excited, and he told me it was a long time since he did this. Tolfin was revved up and crystal was thoughtful I asked, “Are you scared at all?” She shook her head, “No the bad guy is dead, so this should be an easy clean up. Just destroy the guys and the base right?”
‘I hope so.” With that we left. I hoped that is all we had to do, but things are never that easy.
Oliver
This should be an easy clean up. I would do the neck snapping along with Tolfin and the vampires. Hopefully everything will go as planned. If not well someone will have to pay. I am happy about the carnage though. Crystal and Serena made us all invulnerable so we do not have to worry about getting injured or killed. It was time to invade the basterds who captured them, and time for them to go down. We get to the front which is closed because of a security card.
“okay going in the front is stupid. Do you think that would be smart? They could be waiting with guns trained at the door.”
“I know,” I reply, “but we are immune to bullets.”
“So, we still do not have to go in guns blazing they might not even be waiting there.” Okay he made a good point. We went to the back instead. Strangely it was easy for Crystal to get it open.
We got in and walked to the door. After Crystal unlocked it we were making our way to the security room. Nothing changed at all. There were a few guards we had to kill, but that was easy enough. We made our way to the security room and killed the guard in there. Crystal got in the security system and turned off all the locked doors. The ones with ID card required are now open.
I see all the rooms empty until I came across a room with the three bitches there. My eyes widen in shock, “Tolfin come here. Jason, Serena come see this.” They look.
“Holy shit.”
“is that who I think it is?”
“No it can’t be.”
“But it is,” I reply, “Now I guess we have no choice but to kill them.”
Stupid bitches.
“Who will do the honors?”
“I get Terru.” Serena said matter of factly.
“You sure one of us could do it instead?”
“Yes, I am sure after all she did the most to me, so it would be only fair if I give her the proper send off.”
“Okay if you are sure.”
‘I am someone needed to kill her anyway. Its only fair if I do it.”
We turned off the cameras. That part done the only thing we had to do now was face off with the bitches, and blow up the place.
Serena
I get to kill the one bitch I hate in the world. Yeah. As my all time favorite hero says, “Its time to kick ass, and chew some bubblegum and I am all out of gum.” Said by Duke Nukem. I love his style and Serious Sam as well.
Now, we made our way to the bitch room. I am oing to have fun with this. A girl appeared out of nowhere long dark brown hair. Chocolate colored eyes and tan. Not to mention petite looking dressed in an all black ninja suit.
“Scarlet Nightshade what are you doing here?”
“Some bullies need to be killed.”
“I know who you are talking about, but I have it under control.” She points to me. “Who is she?”
“Serena Starfire like I said we have it under control. Serena got bullied by them.”
“I see I would not want to take away that satisfaction for you. If you are sure then I will leave.”
“We are.” She nods then disappears.
We keep moving I get to the doorway. I take a deep breath, and open the door.
Only to hear a chick-chick sound. Realizing she has guards aiming all sorts of guns at our head. I faked wide eyes and act like I am afraid. Terry has a nasty smile aimed my way.
“And just what do you think you are doing here?”
“Ju-Just passing through.”
“Well we can’t have you all running around now can we.” She snaps her fingers. The guards obey like trained monkeys.
“Tie all of them up please. I am so going to enjoy tourturing them before killing them.”
Oliver says in my head.
“Play along everyone.”
I think to myself stupid bitch.
“Why are you doing this?”
She sighs and says in a bored voice, “I suppose I could tell you the whole story before I torture and kill you guys.” She looks at oliver, “You should have joined me all of you.” Amberlynn and Sarah lee were there as well snickering and whispering something laughing at us being tied up.
“Crystal takes Amberlynn I get Sarah lee.” Jason says. Terry kept rambling on about how cute Oliver, Tolfin, and Tony, and Jason were, and how much she wanted to fuck them, “But now for my story of how I am here.” Get on with it you stupid bitch. She gave a dramatic pause,” I have been loyal to Volderius for a month now. Everything was going great until he kept talking about his other pet Kristy Stanley. That bitch took my place, and he tossed me aside like I was nothing to him. I loved him, and he treated me like shit. He also kept going on and on about how good of an asset you are. That made me jealous, and he way Oliver and Jason ignored me for you pissed me off even more.”
“Is that why you treated me badly because you are hurt?” She looked at me shocked, and after the way she treated me before I was surprised she even let me speak. She continued, “ Yes, because you get treated by him like you are special, and he tosses me aside like I was a pet he no longer wanted. “
“That is not a reason to treat me the way you did I know you are nicer then that deep down.” She gets more shocked I am on a roll realizing how wrong we both treated each other, so I went ahead continuing. “I know we have not exactly been friends. We were in the past though. What happened to you? Sleeping around with guys you do not even love? Hurting others by making fun of them, and talking about them behind their backs? Is this what you want to be known as?” She blinked realizing I was asking her a question.” I did not realize I was that bad. I am so sorry Serena. I did not realize how much I had hurt people.” She kept going letting the bad stuff go away, and it took years off her. Years of bullying, hurt, anger, all those horrible things she did now being taken back. She was just as hate filled as I was. I realized then that I could never kill her, and not regret it. I will do whatever I have to in order for her to be safe from Vanta Sandy who is somewhere after escaping. She continued, “I took it out on people because I was hurt. I know I did awful things, but I can change. I will stop talking about you behind your back, and spreading rumors about people. I will apologize to everyone I hurt. I will never steal anyone’s boyfriend. I will never think the whole world is about me. I will listen to other people instead of letting my problems be more important then them. I will try not to compete with friends anymore, or break up friendships. Some of them were my friends, and I should have treated them better. I got sick I thought I was going to die, so I gave up and took it out on my friends and others.” The twins were silent thinking about what she said. It was Sarah /lee who spoke, “We are sorry too, and we will try to be nicer.”
“So much for killing them.” A rude voice interrupted of course it was Vanta Sandy who was looking at Terry and spoke, “ You joined me because I knew how badly that stupid dog was treating you. I was hoping Volderius was going to be killed by me or you. You told me everything you knew about Volderius you even tried to poison him. When that did not work you tried other things.” She was crying which made me mad at him. I said, “I do not care what he did to you. You’re a stupid ugly dick using a girl for your own ends. I ought to kill you it would serve you right.” I stood up and teleported out of my bindings. The guards were stupid enough to start firing at me. I waited until all the guns were out of ammo. The smoke evaporated from all the guns there was a gun powder taste in the room. It revealed me standing there unscathed. The dick gave me wide eyes and I just laughed, ”I am so getting tired of your stupid ass. Waah Poor me the leader hurt my family, and now I want my revenge like a moron. Waah I am not getting attention.” I noticed the guards trying to hurt me. I was not worried the rest of the group got free of their bindings, and they began tearing down the guards leaving Amber Lynne and Sarah Lee alone. They left me to deal with Vanta Sandy.
“So dick it is just you and me may the best person win.”
Vanta Sandy had a gun in his hand. I let him load it knowing they could not hurt me. “You know those will not effect me, and they will just bounce off me right?” He laughed, “I am not shooting you.” I realized he was aiming at Terry and her gang who were huddled in a corner. I tried to prevent it, but I started running Vanta Sandy shot all of them down before I could do anything. That made me realize he had lightning fast reflexes. I hit him and tossed his gun across the room. “Let’s do it without guns ok.” He nodded
I jumped on him and toppled him to the ground. I ground his face into the floor he bucked sending me crashing into the wall. I got up and punched him in the face which made him mad enough to charge at me. I stepped out of the way. Smiling that made him mad as well. He jumped at me again. I got bored I grabbed his neck, and snapped his head off.
That was fun I finally got my revenge on him, but why do I feel horrible now? I guess because three people died today that should not have. I thought I could save her, but I was too late in the end. Everyone was done with the violence, and we headed out.

Chapter 18
Oliver

We won, killed the guards, and Serena ended Vanta Sandy once and for all. The school will be more bearable now that the Ice Cold Babe Trio is gone. We won like I knew we would, and because I am just that good. We planted bombs throughout the facility everyone was dead anyway. A loud bang sounded as the place exploded into a whole lot of pieces.
Updates: Scarlet Nightshade joined the vamps and went back to her boyfriend. They are now a part of Tony and Jason’s clan.
We stayed away from the explosion so we would not get hit by the shrapnel. After that everyone was exhausted, so we went to our houses. I told the leader what happened with the betrayal. He said, “Not surprising girls like her could not be trusted. She deserved what she got in the end. She dug her own grave, and she deserved to lay by it.”
Deep down I knew he was right. If you be like that the world does not look at you in a good way.
A funeral was held for the girls that died. Everyone attended except the six of us. Their bodies were burned, so they never were found. The girls just have a tombstone with their names on it.
School was opened after a week of mourning. I had no regrets about all the killings. I talked to Serena who admitted she was falling for me. I was falling for her as well. She also loved Jason too which was reasonable given that we are all bonded. I am still dealing with being connected to him, and blocking him sometimes when I don’t want him in my head.
I still have Allesha and Rockie to deal with now that she has become a shell. The sorcerer was identified, and Devlin escaped the facility before we blew it up. Serena does not care to start things with me. She does not want anything to do with me. The school year is not over, so Jason, Serena, and I will have to come to an agreement. The bond is still there. I am just figuring it out though. Our resident witch told us the bond will last for a few years then gradually fade away, but there might be a way to make it permanent. I hope not I do not want to be stuck with someone like her.
Serena
I thought I was an ordinary human with psychic abilities, but it turned out I am something else altogether. Instead I am a Skylon, and they are beings with powers that can only be activated with vampire, and Werewolf blood. It all started when four new guys showed up at our school leading me into an investigation that made me realize my full potential, and ended with me finding the loves of my life.
My problems with certain people went away. I am still figuring out Jason. I love Jason so much since we met. Everything we have been through brought us closer. It made me a better person also. I did not regret killing Vanta Sandy. I should though. I should feel like shit for taking his life. I don’t because if you have been through what I did with him, and as for Terry yes we made up. She did betray the leader, and joined the other side. Things should get interesting though. I have not seen the sorcerer yet. There could be a chance that we might meet him soon. I do not think he is happy about us killing his assassin, but I have been working on my powers more. If he wants a fight, he had better bring it on. I am ready for it. Go on sorcerer give me your best shot….

Chapter 5:

Serena

I  saw Crystal in the hallway,  and met her at the bus loop. An idea popped into my head, “Hey Crystal those four new guys at Solarcosmo transferred in at the last year. Why? Why now?  I was thinking about breaking into the main office and copying their school records.I know you have not done this before, so if you do not want to do this I understand.”

“I know what you are thinking,” She smiled at me, “the answer is yes. I do not mind breaking in, and finding out information about the four guys.”

Yes, plan on! I was thinking ahead  so I said, “Meet at my house.”

After that we got on the yellow bus to go home.   The bus ride gave me time to think. I remember the layout of the school pretty decent, so I am not going to get lost at all. I had a feeling that  one day I would need to know how to break into things what good is having abilities if you’re not going to use them anyway. I had no idea that this would be the time to do it, and I figured out how to lock pick from a friend. I had a bad streak then, but I knew that would come in handy. Getting past the locks is easy enough. It would be the cameras and there could be a chance I could get caught. It sounds fun to try it without getting caught. It can be done luckily I do not want her to break in to change our grades. All we are going to do is get four files on the new guys, and photo copy them. I am going to make sure to put them back. The bus stopped jarring me out of my thoughts. We went to my house, and sat in my room to discuss the plans.

We had to plan ahead because it could be dangerous. Actually it seemed pretty easy not hard at all. Just one lousy security guards and some cameras pretty easy peasy. After planning everything we could think of we walked to the school. Time for the break in.

It was night by the time we got to the empty school. Solorcosmo looked like a tomb with no students or teachers running around. It now looked like it was abandoned, but I know better.  It has been closed since 5 the last of the teachers left for home an hour ago. No guards were there watching the cameras. All we had to do was cut of the cameras which was not a problem. Crystal said she could take over the cameras. My job is to just copy the files in the main office then get out of there. The school did not have any alarms, so we did not have to worry about that. We dressed in all black for the purpose of not being able to be seen. The school had nicely cut yards, and pretty flowers which seemed not right with what we are supposed to do. We went to the back of the building, and picked up a key they kept hidden from students. Crystal hacked into the system with a program to get all the codes. She found a code that unlocked where to get a master key to the school.

We went inside the halls until we saw the office. After opening the door I saw the security room holding the cameras. Crystal went in to turn them off. Luckily there were no cameras where we went though.

I powered up the main desktop, and searched for the files that had the list of the admissions of the students. I logged on with the password crystal gave me. I knew it was them when I saw their pictures Oliver,Tolfin, Tony and Jason. Once I was in I copied all four files to the jump drive listing their addresses and schedules for class, and it also has the records of the schools they have attended all the way until now. Copying was nothing though it was when I was done that the guards came walking. I heard a tapping of shoes, and that is when I saw the guards. I quickly run to find Crystal happy I wore shoes that are quiet instead of loud. Oh Shit! Three of them were there patrolling the halls. Crystal went to one side of the hall. I went on the other.

Crystal and I are trying to head them off there were two of them, and the other left to go check out the back. “Who is there? Where did the intruders go? I think I am going to have a good feast, and so are you if we find them.” Guard one said to Guard two. Crystal hid in the closet with me after seeing the guards, so the guards will not find us. There was a hole in the door, so I was able to look through. I could not see their faces only their silhouettes. “Where did they go?” one asked. “I have no idea. I get one side and you get the other side of the school.”

The guards split up one went down one side and one on the other. I sighed when the coast was clear, and the idiots left to find someone else to bust. Luckily we were right in front of a window that leads to Crystal’s car and better then going out the front I give it a tug. Locked! It is not an issue for someone with powers like myself. I focused on the lock which turned to the right. The window was unlocked all I did was levitate crystal through telling her it was a magic trick I have learned online, and then  I float myself out the window, and land on the ground gently not hurting myself or breaking a nail. Crystal took my hand, and we ran as fast as we could to Crystal’s car. Finally out of danger Crystal drove me to her house. I was happy we were not detected at all, and no one was hurt. After we did our jobs we got out as quietly as when we got in, and we successfully evaded the guards.

Crystal and I made it safely to her room. We turned on crystals computer which was a black Stryker made especially for hackers like her. I put the usb drive into the slot, and it was time to find out information on Tony, Jason, and the two mystery boys.

She clicks on the hot guys file the first one who is Tolfin’s friend his name is Oliver Scott. Only 18 years old got kicked out of Valley Fall honors? And I find that really odd an honor roll dork like him would transfer to a place like here. The transcript said the reason was because Sarah Wiley a local student also going there said he stalked her for days, and tried to harm her. Nice, the basterd. Stuff about Jason Sullivan is different story no known date of birth dropped out of high school his last year. I could understand why he wants to go now. I did ignore the fact that he got in some fights at school. It was over petty stuff though. I got my information about both boys that is all I need now.

I have their addresses to so I could do snooping if I wanted to. I will go by myself he lives at 1462 Deer Wolf Street. The old Scott manor. Said to be owned by the infamous James Scott died in the late 18th century. Supposedly killed because they thought he was a werewolf. Wow..He does have a certain wolfness.

Jason Sullivan 1897 Blood fire Court. Another questionable place because that is not a house here yet again a mansion. Each of them on other sides of the county. The mansions abandoned by society because of its strange and medieval past.

Regardless of which of them is first I have to sneak in and find out why. I am going to their houses to find out answers as to why now all of a sudden. I want to search his house to find out why and see if I can dig up anything else. As for Jason his record left out things like where he went to school in the past besides his high school. Also I have a weird feeling that something is not right with him. What will happen? Crystal and I talked we both are going to sneak into the boys houses tomorrow or the next day. She is checking out Tony and Tolfin’s house I get Oliver and Jason’s which is crazy really. I lost my mind I still want to look though. No harm in doing that I have my powers if trouble happens. Crystal left and that is when I decided to do research.

The old James Scott mansion was first. I got on my laptop to look up anything I could find about it.

The mansion built in the 1700s belonged to Riley Scott the first of the werewolf clan to live there. They built it to keep away the wolves or so it said. The woods near the area were attacking the locals so they built a 20 foot fence around the area to keep them out. Joy I have to climb a fence.

Okay that was informative I wonder what house Jason lives in. Blood Fire Court house number 1897 built in the 1800s owner unknown. House is said to have supernatural occurrences there. Many claim to hear noises at night.

Two mansions with supernatural dealings just my cup of tea. So, I have to investigate maybe I can find something useful the houses are going to be difficult to get into. The one with the fence, and I have to bring a hammer or saw to get through it said fence it might mean metal pliers.

I went to bed at 10:00 to get ready for school the next day.

Chapter 6

Oliver

I heard a cell ring realized it was my leaders who answered it.  I could not pay attention to who he is talking to just that he got frustrated. He hung up, “We have a problem.” He continued in a serious tone, “Someone went to the school to break in. Funny thing is they broke into the main office. Not before my guards caught them on film though. One of them literally froze and malfunctioned the cameras. They stole your files and the two vamps. Not males though females. We are going to my house to bring the tapes. I put guards at the school on you and the vamps to make sure if any situation arises the problem would be taken care of.” Fuck I think I know who would do that. “Does that mean they have our addressed now?” I asked. He nodded, “Exactly lets get in the car and go.” We got in and headed off. Tofin had been quiet the entire time. I wonder why. Was he thinking the same thing I was? Anticipation ran through me. She was smarter then I thought. Another thought struck me.

“Sir have the vampires been warned?”

“I am informing them as we speak. We have no idea if these girls are humans or vamp or were they could be working for the enemy.” I actually should be fighting this. I do not want this at all. No, No, No! I can’t believe it. I promised not to get involved with a human girl again. No! I guess I am screwed.

We went to the house the leader lived in Synan Square Manor. It was one of the richest houses on the street. The leader was a thief in the late 19th century. He robbed banks, jewelry stores, and he even took precious heirlooms from museums. He kept the money he sold from everything and built his house from the ground up. The outside was painted red a very dark blood red. The inside was all black from the walls to every piece of furniture inside except for some silver colored appliances.

We parked the car unlocked our seatbelts and got out. After opening the door and going inside we went to the living room with leather couches it has a lacquer table in the middle and a fireplace. It was very plush and elegant the way the leader likes it. We sat on the black couch in front of the big screen, and watch the tape. One of his werewolf guards opens the DVD player to put the DVD in and then hits the play button. “This is the office they broke into including the main office and the security area.” The screen turns blue and the movie plays. It shows the security and the offices. The movie gets boring until a familiar blonde and blue haired girl arrives. Yep, that is the girl’s friend the girl sits down and starts typing on the console. She gives a look of frustration after several minutes. Then puts up her hand, and literally freezes the cameras in ice. Wow…… She turns her head realizes she missed one and it gets burned up. Double Damn! It turns to the office where a familiar brown and red haired girl is. A girl I know all too well. The one that drives my instincts crazy to protect. She takes a few files and photo copies them puts them back. She looked at the camera, and it blows up. My eyes widen. The screen goes black then turns to white noise signaling the end. The leader was silent. Tolfin eyes wide as he realized what happened. I think we found the evidence we need. They are the lons we are trying to find. I am crushing on a supernatural creature? At least that is what I think. Volderius speaks, “You guys are in the same classes with these girls right?” We both nod, “Track them down and bring them to me.” We agree then head back to the Scott mansion. On the way there I have all these thoughts going through my head. What is she doing checking on us? Does she like Jason? Do I have a chance with her? And a whole lot of others. I wonder if she even knows what she is.

I get there Tolfin already in the driveway goes in. I get out unbuckle and go in myself. Tolfin lies down on the couch. “So here is the goal: I get the blonde and you get the brunette.” I nod in agreement we had our marks now it was only a matter of about where to get them first. Follow or waiting.

Chapter 7:

Serena:

I thought I was asleep, but I woke up.  I got dressed and went to the bus stop. Crystal came over immediately.  She found out stuff that I did about Tolfin and Tony’s house. Tony lives with Jason in the same house. I guess that means they are roomies the same as Tolfin and Oliver which means we both know the same story. I guess we are going together, and we have to get past the fence.

The bus came I did not see any sign of my ex and his slut of a girlfriend. We got on the bus to go to the torture chamber again.  I can’t wait until graduation. I will not have to deal with those jerks again.

The day went by faster than I could blink. Before I knew it school was over, and I was going home which means time to break in Oliver’s house.

We found a way in through the fence. It was a hole big enough for me and crystal to fit through. I took note of the mansion painted black and red a pretty sight also.

I tip toed on the lawn to the door. I got the lock pick and was trying to get the damn thing unlocked. It did but not because of me the person we were trying to spy on was standing in front of us. And the other guy popped out behind us trapping us I looked so shocked I blacked out.

Chapter 8:

Oliver

The girl who we were looking for interrupted my tv show. I heard them trying to break in the front door of all places. Tolfin did to so he snuck in the back. I opened the door the brunette faints.

I pick her up and put her on a couch. The blonde crystal follows. “ I am oliver and that blonde guy is Tolfin. How did you guys get past the gate.” I ask I sit on a chair and beckon her to sit down. She sits and replies, “Through a hole in a fence. I only followed you guys so my friend or   Guarded one stays out of trouble.” The door opens I look to see who it is. Tolfin with the crystal glowing a red.

“Yep its them now we need to notify the leader.” He replies in a matter of fact voice.

“Why are you telling that guy? I thought you were going to the police because we trespassed isn’t that against the law?” I laugh so does Tolfin.

“No, we need your help not to mention a crazed werewolf hunter is after us.”

She laughs, “Yeah right those do not exist. They are made up fairy tales.”  I laugh again. Tolfin said, “No, you know they exist you’re a Waterlon for fucks sake. I thought we never would find you. Here you are in the wolfs den.” Tolfin goes up to her, and a look passes between them. She glares then says, “Fine asshole what do you want to know?” Then he begins asking  questions and she is replying back like:

“Does she know she is a skylon?”

“No not a clue her parents thought it safer if she does not know who she is.”

“When are you going to tell her?”

“When she is ready.”

“How long have you know about us?”

“Since I first saw you.”

“You realize supernatural creatures might want to hurt her?”

“Yeah I was hoping not. I guess it is inevitable now. I have to tell her.”

Serena

I faint and hear all what is going on. I somehow manage to leave my body. I am hearing all of crystals and tolfins conversation disbelief radiating through me. How could she  know and not tell me what I am? I think back to the conversation. The answers she says make sense. I guess I do not need to tell her about my gifts anymore. She knew everything all along. And she did not tell me which hurt the most. Oliver and Tolfin are werewolves, and Jason and tony are vampires. I guess that makes sense. However they are in sunlight.  I thought they were supposed to burst in sunlight.

I was hurt though when I heard what she said. A sick feeling in my gut. Just when exactly was she going to tell me? I thought about my body then I was immediately whooshed into it. It felt as if a vacuum grabbed me and stuffed me back in.

I gasped and opened my eyes. I was in my body alright. A glare was pointed at Crystal who gave a hurt look.

“I heard everything you said when were you going to tell me?”

“I was going to tell you when you were ready.”

I yelled. “When I want an answer now you betraying bitch. Just when. Answer me.”

Oliver put up his hands and spoke in a calm voice. “Calm down and stop screaming. I am guessing she could not tell you because she was sworn not to.”

I was holding my fury back but calmed down when I realized it was not her fault. If she was sworn into it, then it was not her fault. My heart which was racing with fury calmed down as well.

I turned to Oliver, “Why did you glare at me?”

“I think it is ok to tell you now. The reason is because I do not want to get involved with humans. Since you are not normal I guess that is okay with me since I need your help.”

“ I can move objects and go out of my body.”

“Skylons are supposed to have more powers. There is a ritual done between a Guardian or Waterlon and a Skylon that gives you guys a strong bond. It even helps skylons come into their power.”

“I guess we should do the ritual then.”

Crystal nodded. “I was given a book at the age of 16 to give to you with the ritual of coming into your power.”

I was taking this all in, and I got tired of standing so I sat in one of Olivers comfy leather black couches.

I was not shocked about vampires and werewolves existing though. I honestly knew there was some explanation for my powers, but I thought my parents might be normal and not weird.

My parents are still out there somewhere. One day I will try to find them. That is another story one that involves me not being in high school.

Enough of that thought I am just trying to wrap my head around everything that has happened. So much has happened in the past few days that make me want to sleep.

“When are we doing the ritual?” I asked.

“Well, when do you want to do it?”

“I do not know the day, but is it necessary now?”

“No it is not and we do not have to worry about it right now.” Oliver insisted. Why am I noticing how cute his hair curls sitting there. Why?  He is a fucking werewolf. Mayb he turns into a wolf? I shook from my thoughts because Tolfin came in the room.

“The vampires have been notified, and they are here now. Shall I let them in?”

Oliver nods. Crystal sitting there on the couch says, “I will come with you.” And follows him. Which makes me think great she left me alone with him. The sexy hot guy that makes me want to melt into a puddle right before his eyes.

“So are you a wolf or can you turn into one? How does that work?”

“I am one. I change into one whenever the moons have some effect on us. Like during full moons we are more active. A light lights up from inside of us and the wolf pops out. It is not painful or hurting us at all. It feels good like..” he gazes out the window trying to explain. He smiles, “Like being able to stretch your legs after spending the day in bed. Like a burden has been lifted off you.”

“And silver does that hurt you?”

“ It does not just hurt me it burns. Think of having a scalding hot poker on your skin.”

I am having fun asking him questions. Talking to him about things. It is more like finding out about werewolves, and wanting to know things about him.

“What makes you different from a normal human?”

“Enhanced senses like touch, taste, smell, sight. Hearing things from 10 yards away.”

Sweet that must be fun to have as a child. A thought just struck me.

“So did someone turn you into one or were you born one?”

“Born one.”

Hmmm… Interesting

“I hope I am not interrupting anything important.”

Oh goody the vampires are here.

Chapter 9:

Oliver

That talk was going well until that asshole interrupted. I had my doubts about getting involved with her. Yes, I fought it very hard.

I fought the urge to be with her because I thought it would end in disaster. Once I heard she was not exactly normal my attitude changed.

Until jackass interrupted I was considering kissing her. Serena instead answered saving me from making a smartass remark

“Yeah actually you were interrupting me or us. I wanted to know about his kind. I was curious..” He smiled at her.

“I suppose it is my turn to answer your questions. I will save you the trouble, and just tell you a little about my kind.” I got kind of mad when he sat down next to her, and kissed her hand. It made me feel very jealous inside that I did not think of it first. I just tried to play it off like it was no big deal. Jason then proceeded to tell her what I already know. “I am guessing you already know I am a vampire. That is confirmed when Tolfin told the leader you were here. You know who you are now. I am guessing no one told you that skylons smell very good to vampires and weres.” She shook her head, “No one told me that I guess I am in the dark about what I am.”  He thought for a moment. I felt like telling him do not hurt yourself thinking too hard. I held back mainly because it would seem like I am acting like a jealous jerk.

I was trying to take it easily honestly. I also have to deal with Vanta Sandy. He sort of went on the back burner when we were first searching for the two girls.

Tolfin is still with Crystal and Tony is with them. The vampires and Tolfin and I have agreed that the two girls have to have one vampire and one were with them at all times. They are too valuable for us to loose because of our carelessness.

We need their help. Jason said, “ I was wondering who was supposed to tell you originally. I am guessing it was crystal. You realize you are a myth to us. We thought you guys were a made up legend. It will be very interesting to see what else happens.” She was silent no doubt taking his questions to heart. I wonder if she would be afraid or not.

These thoughts kept going through my head I kind of wish they would shut up. Too bad I can’t get her away from all this.

Serena

I heard what he was saying. It was hard for me to take it all in. I am a supernatural creatures version of an addicting drug like crack or cocaine? Wow…..Interesting Crystal should have told me this. I think she was waiting for the right time.

I was curious about vampires though. The oliver werewolf questions were very informative. I am going to learn more about their culture though.

So I asked Jason, “Do vampires drink blood?” He nodded and replied, “Yes, they do need it. They crave it like a meth addict. Their bite is orgasmic when they feed on another. They do not kill people or hurt them at all. They have fast reflexes and are super strong. They have a strong sense of smell and blood tastes different which depends upon the human.”  He continued. “Let me go down the list. Only really old vampires sleep in coffins. Yes, we can drink animal blood, but only when we do we turn into the animal we drink from. We can stay in the sunlight until we are 1,000 years old. We can’t have garlic myth. That we can’t walk over running water myth that you can’t see our reflection myth.”

“I guess Hollywood made up that stuff like they usually do.”

“Yep, fire and stake through the heart will kill us.”

“So some of them make sense?”

“Yep, I once read on the internet all the stuff out there it is pretty funny to say the least. A lot of it is total bullshit.”

“I have read stuff on werewolves as well. The silver they got right, but a lot of them want to make me laugh my ass off.”

I laughed with them I do research as well, and some of the stuff they come up with is really funny.

“Anything else I need to know about vampires?”

“ Well, if a vampire wants to he can form a blood bond. This is how it works: A vampire gives a human his blood then the vampire gets the humans. After that happened the vampire and human knows how the other is feeling. So, I have never done it. I heard from others that makes things interesting.” I turn to Oliver, “What about you?”

He smiles, “there are rituals that an alpha can do to bind a human to a member of the pack. There is also a ritual to bind two people together..”

Hmm…Cool.. I wondered what was taking Crystal so long. Not that I did not enjoy their company, but I wanted to know what was going on.

Chapter 10

Serena:

Luckily Crystal, Tolfin, and Tony came in. Crystal sat by me and tony followed by Tolfin sat on another chair. Tolfin spoke, “The leaders both spoke to each other. They need to have you guys help us out. They fear you both. You guys could end our lives easily. I know you will not hurt us. We need to do the ritual tomorrow. The pack sorcerer will get everything you guys need for it.” I looked at Crystal, “Can I see the book?” She nods, “I have it here with me that is why it took so long.”

She takes out a mini book out with the words Skylon and Waterlon handbook. It was red and black with jewels on the cover. It looked to be a whole bunch of years old. I take it from her and open it. It has all kinds of goodies in it the history of my kind and job descriptions. It has the powers I might possess all kind of goodies and rituals.

I flipped to the ritual which called for a vampire and werewolves help. One for each of us. We had to have one on one side and one on the other.

It ends with a binding of all the group. This could be temporary or permanent it depends on the Waterlon or Skylon.

Great another situation that looks unavoidable. Another bad thing is powers can be transferred as well. It also says that since I am bound to a vampire and a werewolf I get some of their abilities as well. It even requires their blood. EWW!

“Crystal you do realize the consequences of this ritual right?”

“I am fully aware of what it does. We don’t have a choice though. I kinda forgot to tell you about another threat,” she pauses dramatically, “A sorcerer is on the loose.”

“A sorcerer when were you going to tell me that?” I squeak.

“When something like this has happened.”

Great. You see kids I have a whole lot of fun stuff to deal with.

So much for this being a normal senior year. I am only 17, and I have to deal with a psycho ex boyfriend and a clique of rich bitches. Also a werewolf hunter and a sorcerer.

“I might as well order a tombstone for my birthday. Here lies Serena who died because of too much stuff to deal with.”

I get up and go outside to scream as loud as I can.  I scream about my not normal life. I scream about the situations, and about the fact that I can’t escape tying myself to a vampire and a werewolf. For the first time I wish I had a normal life and a normal family, but I know that is not going to  happen.

I go back into the room determined to see things through. I have decided to make the best of things no matter what. If I was going to be tied to anyone I would want it to be Jason and Oliver. Things might not be too bad once things are done.

I moved a tissue box and lifted it up. Noticing there was nothing underneath it. Everyone looking at me with wide and amazed eyes except for Crystal. I double dog dare Vanta Sandy to mess with me now. I will give him a fight if he messes with anyone I know.

Oliver

I never realized how amazing it was to see her use her gifts. What will it be like to see her use her other ones? I wonder. Then crystal gets up and demonstrates hers she creates a water ball then turns it to ice. She burns it in flames and makes electricity come out of her hands.

“I can’t turn into my true form until you come into your power Serena.”

That is an interesting tidbit I did not know. Crystal then explained the ritual we had to do to get Serena into her powers. After she was done explaining I was in shock. The ritual made it so that the three of us can share powers. In turn Serena could get werewolf and vampire abilities. Interesting I guess I would have to be her mentor on the werewolf side of things. She turned to me and said, “I am scared Oliver would you help me with the wolf things?”

“Yes I just wonder what it would be like for you.”

“The change is different with every werewolf and there are many different colors and breeds to go along with it.”

“And different powers too?”

I nod, “It is very cool once you get used to it.”

I was being honest with her. I think people are missing out on not being able to be anything other then human.

So, we are all here, and we have united to take out Vanta Sandy first.

I am tired it is now 11:00pm. Since she tried to sneak here I had better take her home. Crystal borrowed her mom’s car so she left. Leaving me alone to take Serena home.

Serena

I am sitting in the car with Oliver at the wheel. Silence resounded. I wondered why. I can’t wait to go home though. I snuck in Oliver’s house to find information about him, but I was caught like a trespasser trying to sneak in quietly.

I found out more then I bargained for like who I am, and who Crystal is. I know a whole lot about vampires and werewolves now.

“How do you find your mate? I heard wolves try to find a mate sometime in their lives what is that about?”

I asked curious about the answer.

He sighed, “Werewolves know about it the first time they see that person. There is a connection between the two like a love at first sight thing.”

Then he ended the subject and got quiet again. He acted like he did not want to talk about it again. He was quiet the rest of the way there. He dropped me off said bye and that was that. Nothing else. I still wondered about what happened to him to make him like that.  I think there is more to him than meets the eye. I do not think it is any of my business though. I shower and get dressed in a pair of shorts and a tank. I got into bed, and was trying to fall asleep.

I stopped when I heard a knock at the window. I went over and opened it only to find it was Jason there.

“Hey what brings you here?”

“Oh I thought I would drop by, and get to know you a little bit without the stupid dog watching.”

“Vampires and werewolves do not get along I guess.”

“No we hate each other. I came to give you information as well about werewolves. Did you know they use humans as play things? I saw those bitch trio girls, and thought I would give you a heads up.”

I was shocked again. My sworn enemy and her two evil cohorts are werewolves playthings?

I laugh, “Serves those bitches right.”

He laughed, “Yeah, they are kind of slutty they threw themselves at me like a couple of junkies desperate for a fix.”

His Italian accent making me as giddy as a school girl. I love a guy with an accent like that.

“Where are you from?”

“Italy, a town called Belatzi. Where she who made me lives. I moved to the US of A to get away from the psycho of a maker. It worked thank god. I ran because I caught her in bed with another male vampire.” Oh talk about serious trust issues. I wanted to get to sleep so I just said, “Could I get to sleep now? Too much has happened I need to get rest for tomorrow.” He nodded, and I got under the covers. I was anxious to get to sleep finally. My eyes closed and I entered Dreamland everything else forgotten.

Chapters 1-4 of #BloodFire&MoonWatch

Chapter 1

Serena

I am so ready to get my senior year over with, and head to Lavender Fall University. I am heading to the kitchen to see my mom. Along the way, I passed my parents room on the left, the weight room on the right. The bathroom, and across the bedroom is a plain guest room. I went down the wooden stairs, straight into the kitchen with a dining room across it. The kitchen was decorated the way my mom wanted it. There remain stainless steel cabinets that hang up in the kitchen, two refrigerators and freezers that are filled up as always it was never empty. It was there that my mom Sarah Starfire was making breakfast. She is a small woman with short, dark, brown hair and green eyes. She is wearing casual clothes like the ones she usually wears to work. My dad is at work and he works in a law firm. We don’t ever see him. Once my mom was done making my breakfast, she put it on a plate. I finished eating and put on my backpack, then went out the door.

I sat at the bus stop bored out of my mind yet again, and think about not going so early. I get out a pencil and concentrate on it, and gathered an imaginary ball of energy made it surround the pencil. It lifted off the ground without effort, and I can use it without needing a strong emotion to fuel it.

When I was 13 I moved a cookie off a plate. I was just excited about eating the cookie, and I never really thought about what it would mean.  I did research on the gift out of curiosity, and it is called telekinesis which is the ability to move objects. I began practicing using my gifts ever since the cookie incident. In the seventh grade I tested it at school when I got bored because I read the chapter ahead of time. I moved the chalk and wrote, “Give Mr. Scarlet his boa back or there will be hell to pay.”

Mr. Scarlet is a teacher at Pill Drop Middle School which is called that because the kids are druggies. The name of the school is really called Pearson Dell Middle School.

Mr. Scarlet and Ms. Epps the teacher I was scaring both fought. Ms. Epps stole Mr. Scarlet’s boa, and I saw it in her desk. I thought it would be fun to make her think the guy’s mom is haunting her because she gave me a bad grade. There is now a rumor that the school is now haunted when it was really me having a little fun. Another weird fact about me is that I was born on October 31st on Halloween. I thought it was cool I got candy, presents, and cake on Halloween! My mom also told me that on the day after she got me from the adoption agency. A lady who claimed to be a psychic came by, and told her that I would be one extraordinary kid, and that I have a great destiny ahead.

Later as I got older I went in search of the psychic, and I found out the lady was a mental patient who escaped from the insane asylum. After hearing that my mom did not believe it at all and, neither did I until I was 13. It was hard for me to accept being weird, but I got used to it.

I lost track of time staring into the inky black sky wondering about my future… My friend Crystal was heading over from her house which is a street away. I saw her heading toward me. She is 4’10” with long blonde hair with dark blue streaks in it, and blue eyes like a sea blue.

Today, she is wearing blue jeans and a green shirt with blue sandals looking like a beach babe with a seashell necklace, earrings, with blue and green bracelets with makeup to bring out her appealing features. She gives me a hug, and then in a perky voice says, “How is your morning going so far? I see you wore that shirt I gave you to help you complete your look. All the boys are going to stare now.” Then she winks at me.

I just smile and reply, “It does help me look like a hot vixen who looks good in black, and I could use some pretty black shirts to continue my tough chick look.” She nodded. “It does work on you my best femme fatal touch chick friend. Do whatever floats your boat, or keeps it from sinking while trying not to get sunk on purpose.” She thought a moment, and nodded off. My friend is just an interesting kind of girl that is unique. She is like my sister, and I have known her long enough to consider her one. She was facing toward me, and she gave me a look that told me don’t-look-behind- you. I freeze hoping it is not that pervert across the street.

I turn my head anyway like I was about to see a car accident my first thought was anger, and then hate followed by rage. Somewhere deep down was hurt especially when I saw my ex with his new girlfriend. He uses girls just to make me jealous, and this is not the only time he has done it. Dante is holding hands with Sonya, still the memories of him and me the way we use to be threaten to turn me into a pile of ugly, all over the floor tears, and that stabs my heart into tiny jagged pieces even more seeing him with another other then me. It has been a year since we broke up.

We broke up because his friends had a problem with us dating. The way he did it was he told one of our friends to tell me that he wanted to break up with me instead of telling it to me in person like the coward he really is, and one without a backbone too since he let his friends pressure him into dumping me.

I still remember that day too, and it was a weekend a pretty day. I was just home from vacation, and I got a call from his friend Steve. “Serena your boyfriend wants to break up with you.” Did he not realize what he says now is traumatizing, and that it hurts? I was hoping he was wrong, and he did not say that. My heart was about to fall out of my chest. The wet tears started to fall down my face, and I felt like I was about to pass out. I panic, and dial Dante’s number rather shakily. “ Dante,” I stutter when he answers, “Do you really want to break up with me?” He is silent, meanwhile I am praying it is not true. Then he speaks, “Sorry Serena it is true, and I don’t think this is going to work out.” He hangs up. I freeze, and scream really loud, and the glass light bulbs explode, and glass is all over the house. How could he do that to me?  I thought we were going to last, and I was happy to be with him. I end up on the floor in shock trying to figure out what I did wrong. Why? He said he was perfect for me, but it must be a lie since he had no issue tearing my heart to shreds making me hurl, and sick how could he do that to someone he loves? If he was so perfect then why did he break my heart. I act like a zombie for a few months, and I get out of my funk determined to move on from that horrible guy.

I doubt he would talk to me at all considering I told him to take me back in a desperate way after he broke up with me. I got his cell number from his sister to call him, and I was begging him to take me back. His rejection felt like a knife to the heart making me sick all over again, and remembering the way he acts like he is perfect when he is not only sickens me. Tears threatened to fall, and it hurt more when I found out he is now with someone else. I still love him, and I was hoping he would try to give things another shot. I was hoping he would dump the girl my worst enemy Sonya Sanrio, and go date me again. I wish he would realize we are meant to be, and had been all along. I wish I could forget him, but it is hard to forget your first love. I have issues with forgetting things relationship wise, and I wish I could move on from him, and find someone else. Tears are threatening to fall again, and I hate myself for it because acting desperate for a guy is not my style. I ignore him though, and keep staring off into space.

She looked at me. “Don’t let him get to you like that. You’re over that dork right?” I gave her a glare thinking she is right, but unwilling to tell the new girl. “Duh! … Why do you think I am warning her about him, and the way he treats women?”  I am over it now there is still a little hurt there, but not now. It never would have worked out anyway since he is moving after he graduates to join the military. I used to be so pissed off I thought about messing up his relationship, and so hurt that I wanted revenge. I shook my head not wanting to think about the past too much, or the fact that I wish I can focus enough to fling them into a tree.

Crystal said, “Well I cannot believe her what a stupid moron. And I heard she slept with guys and cheated on them with others, and used them for money. Good luck with that relationship I doubt it will work out, and he was just showing her off to make you jealous.” I thought about it then replied, “Probably boys like him love to put things in other people’s faces. Please like I would be jealous of him dating someone period.” I shook my head thinking how stupid he is to try to do that to me.

We waited a couple minutes after that. People started showing up to catch the yellow prison bus to school. Crystal and I ignored them since they gossip too much, and we pay absolutely no attention to most of them anyway. We do not care about groups, or cliques they just annoy us. All we honestly care about is getting an education, and graduating to hell with the rest of them. Oh goody the bus has come to save us from these dorks. I am happy the bus has come because it means ignoring the students. Education with a side of socialism is coming our way!

Oliver

Trip Asylum, a bar at Sandy Ridge Street an important place, and one that houses a secret layer for hunters. Tolfin my buddy since grade school, grab a table, and a waiter dressed in a black and red shirt came over with leather pants and boots to match came over. “What can I get you?” He asked pen and paper ready to take the order.

I glanced at the menu real quick looking for something with alcohol to calm my nerves, and I need to calm down since I am in close proximity to the girl werewolf hunters. They have a special pheromone that attracts the males of our species making us a target for them to hit, “Rum and coke.” I reply with more eagerness in my voice to get out of here then to stay at all.

“Are you of age sir, and can I see your ID?” I just rolled my eyes, and handed him my ID. I get out my leather wallet, and hand him my ID. The waiter handed me the ID back, and left to go get the drink.  I looked around the bar with smoke filling the room, and strobe lights flickering above us. There was a mediocre band playing metal music great, the werewolf hunters seem to have an interesting taste in music.

This place was such a dump that I doubt anyone would find a werewolf training layer in it. Tolfin and I are here to get information from a reliable source.  Unfortunately, werewolf hunters lined the tables with rifles that housed loaded silver bullets in them. It made me a little on edge when I spotted their trade mark AK-47 assault rifles thankfully none of them recognize me at all since my father is head of the WolfThunderstorm pack, and I thank my lucky stars they are off duty since they are enjoying themselves along with the patrons. I still have to wait for my source, and then we can go. Awesome. Joy rapture.

The waiter returned with my drink. I took a sip of the drink letting the alcohol keep me calm. I spotted Devlin as he entered the bar wearing a charcoal suit with briefcase in hand. He sat in a nearby chair, “What is up boys?” His eyes twinkled with mischief. Tolfin spoke first an interested tone in his voice, “What did you find out?”

“Hiya, boys. I have got good news, and a bit of bad news. The good news is there is an underground werewolf training facility in this very club. The bad news it has a cloaking device that makes it impossible for a werewolf to track. Vampires can track it though.”

I frowned, “The last thing we need is to get vampires involved.” Devlin nodded. I told him about the way they treat us like we are dogs “Go tell the Weredogs about the situation with the human vermin.” I once heard the leader say, and he sent in the lowest member of the vampire group. He did not even send us someone in command, and the guy was just a young vampire too. The leader is a selfish self-serving individual that cared about money more than anything too a point that was proven when my father was trying to get him to leave a member of our pack alone, and the only way he would stop is if we paid him a huge sum of money.

“I know why you hate them, and I have heard all the horror stories from my girlfriend.  The vampires do not like werewolves either, and the leader Staven calls you a bunch of stupid mongrels that lick out of toilet bowls.”

I laughed, “The only time werewolves lick anything is when we are hunting near rivers. It is not any of his business what we lick either.” I calm myself yet again, and this time I really prevent myself from having a change in the bar. My temper is getting worse being away from my dad when I am the bounty hunter is not good for a dominant guy like me. I need my pack by my side, and I am the next in line to the Scott legacy.

Devlin was talking about the changes going on, and the plans Vanta Sandy is scheming. “By the way,” He looked at the both of us concern in his voice. “Vanta Sandy mentioned two girls that go to a local high school near here the legendary Waterlon and Skylon are there, and he wants to recruit them to defeat you guys…” My skin ran cold with fear, and an ice pit formed in my chest..

My eyes also widen at that because I thought they were legends, but apparently I was wrong. Werewolves have pheromones that attract the opposite sex, and maybe the girls can be convinced to work for us. “And? What does this have to do with us?”

He continued, “My best guess is that if the werewolves capture them before He does then you guys can kick his ass. Focus on getting them for the time being, and I will keep an eye on Vanta Sandy. I will let you guys know if anything new comes up.” Too bad this is not a simple kick his butt, and be done…I wish it was that simple, but he is the type of guy to hide from us, and he has no scent which is bad considering that is how wolves track their prey.

Devlin got up, and left while Tolfin called the leader of the pack near the area since we are on his turf until Vanta Sandy is captured, and Tolfin was also telling him about the evidence Devlin told us.   His commands, “Go to the local high school, and disguise as high school students. Find the girls. Persuade them to join us or capture them. Bring them to me after you do find them.” Tolfin hung up after he was done talking.

Tolfin turned to discuss the next plan of action to take since he is the smarter of the two of us, “Lets register at Solar Cosmo high school since we can find them there it is the only high school in the area, and go in September. We have to get fake ids, and pose as actual students. We can look for the girls at Solar Cosmo High school. You did not finish high school remember?”

I looked away, but I am trying not to think about the memories that kept trying to rear their ugly heads. “I do not want to talk about it, or her for that matter.” I downed the rest of my drink happy to feel the burn of the alcohol going down, hopefully drowning out my memories. Realizing, I have to go back to school again made it tempting to buy another drink.

Great, acting like a high schooler again makes me want to run around kicking and screaming.  I would rather be shot by silver then go to school again. I will be watching people get made fun of again, and I will be dealing with being treated as an outsider again. Tolfin was quiet a thoughtful look on his face probably thinking the same thing I am dealing with human girls, and he only had one girl he told me about, and it did not end well. I linked to his mind again; an ability werewolves in our pack have, and only if they belong to the pack.

I know what you’re thinking try not to dwell on it too much though.

Fine, I wish that Olivia had given me a second chance though.

I shake my head. Tolfin dated Olivia for a while, and things were going great until she left him for a jerk in the military. A guy who claimed he was top of the military food chain when really he was just some lowly tech guy.  Tolfin was probably better off since the guy had a history of abusing his previous girlfriends poor Olivia ending up with a jerk instead of a nice guy like Tolfin who treated their women right.

She was stupid for hurting you. Leaving you for an abusive guy is really dumb. You will find happiness one day my friend, and a girl that will love you for you.

Tolfin is a brother to me since we grew up together. He deserves to be happy, and not a wreck. I hate to sound like a girl when I said that, but it is true.

He looked at me, and spoke out loud, “You think so? I see you happy with Allesha. It must feel good to be in a caring relationship. I wonder if I will ever find happiness again.”

“Believe me I was in the same boat as you with Sarah, so I am pretty sure you will find a girl who will not leave you at all.”  The glass I was holding broke because of me obsessing about my ex, and splinters of glass stuck in my hand. I was thinking back to what she did cheating on me with another guy, and moving in with him. Last time I talked to her she did not want to be in a relationship, and a year later I find out that not only is she with someone else, but she is also moving in with him. It hurt something inside of me to hear that, and it hurt so bad she might as well have kicked me in the chest. I kept thinking why not me, and then I found Allesha. My guide was there when I fell apart, and he was there when I built myself up again, so having him helped as well.

When werewolves change for the first time a wolf spirit guides them all through their lives helping them out, and warning them of danger.  The spirits of the wolf help guide us because weres are a part of the wolf pack magic. The wolf spirits chooses who to guide, and become our friends and protectors for life.

My wolf is named Darian, and I calmed him down enough to prevent him from making me change when my life is not being threatened. Darian was in my head, and trying to calm me down.  Feeling the throat tightening tears threatening to fall, and we are tied together so much that he knows everything I think and feel because he is a part of me.

It did not work out for a reason. You found someone better, and I doubt you wanted to date her now anyway. She is not the girl you fell in love with, and with her anger and jealousy about you being friends with girls in the pack your life would constantly be in danger.

Tolfin interrupted my thoughts, “Dude, stop bringing her up. You have Allesha now.” I took a deep breath. The last time I got like this I got angry, I changed, ran, and I was thankful no one was around to see me like that.  No one was around then, but here there were humans and werewolf hunters. I calmed down. I sighed, and looked at Tolfin, “Let’s go then, and get ready.” Darian calmed me down, “Oliver calm down there is no reason to think about the past, and Sarah is not meant for you anyway.”  My tightened shoulders relaxed at that, and the tension was erased from my mind. I need to remember that I have moved on at least Allesha is there for me.

Once the meeting was over I got up from my seat, and Tolfin led the way to his car. Getting away from that place before they found out we were werewolves is a smart idea. I got in the passenger seat, and Tolfin drove off. There were tasks ahead to do before school started. That is what I did to take my mind off the memories.

September came around before I knew it. All I wanted to do right now was go back to sleep, and not deal with going to a new school. I dreaded going today because it means back to drama, and stupid immature mind games. The girls Tolfin and I are looking for are supposedly going there and I will focus on that. Maybe one of them will be cute, and that might make looking for them more enjoyable.

My mansion is my place of rest, and that is where I am living now located in the Solar Cosmo district. I call my mansion the place where I retreat from the world to recharge in the morning.  Temporarily I am here on a job staying at one of the many Scott ancestral homes my household has throughout the region.   It is elegant, and I decorated the whole mansion in the black and red colors of the Scott legacy in honor of my family name. A legacy so old that its ancestors allegedly turned into wolves and hunted as a tribe in Europe, but it is no legend since we are all a pack of werewolves. Melodia the county where I am is on the continent of Sunestile which broke off as a part of Russia a few years ago.

There are werewolf packs all over in every part of the world, and in every continent, there are alpha leaders that lead the pack, and  traditions so old only a true alpha leader can read from the pack books called Alden Stone that has ancient rituals for werewolves and other pack  traditions handed throughout the ages.

My family is not here they live in Arkastonia which is a few hundred miles away in a pack called the Wolf Thunderstorm pack. I left them so I can hunt for Vanta Sandy – the asshole werewolf hunter that is trying to end the life of the leader Volderius. Of course Devlin is the one keeping an eye on Vanta Sandy for now.

I have to join their pack because being so far away from my own is dangerous, because a werewolf will go insane if he does not have a pack, and then he will go crazy killing everything in sight. The pack abilities allow us to turn into werewolves on demand, and it allows us to change whenever we want to. It makes the change easy to handle, and enjoyable even. The pack magic allows werewolves to control the change to the point where it does not interfere with our daily life.

My room has a bed, dresser, a laptop, and desk. Staying in bed right now will not help me anymore, or the nausea of going back to high school. I have to get ready, my life has to go on, and I have girls to track down. I got up, took a shower, got dressed in a black shirt, blue jeans, and black combat boots. I have no choice but to go to the local high school Solar Cosmo High school the district I am staying in, and my leader assigned us there to start the search anyway.

My parents do not mind me being on my own all they told me before I left is that all they want is for me to get a good education. Go to Lavender Fall University because that is where they went. My parents are both werewolves like me, and they were happy once I told them I was going to finish up high school. I had to leave them behind because I have a mission to complete, and I had to leave my original pack as well as the mate promised to me since I was born. My mate was there for me after the Sarah break up, and she has been there for me ever since.

The job I was talking about is eradicating a human named Vanta Sandy who is a werewolf hunter, and he can sense werewolves. The worst part of it is that he does not give off any smell at all. People have a scent, and normal people give off odors, but Vanta Sandy has none. My mission is to get rid of him, and rumors are going around that he formed an organization, built it under ground, and is now training other werewolf hunters to hunt and kill us which is what Devlin confirmed going undercover there. Vanta Sandy is after our leader Volderius Volnare because with him gone that is one less pack to deal with, and that is who we have to protect. Without a alpha leader to guide them the ones tied to the pack will go on a killing frenzy, and expose themselves to humans. My pack sent me to deal with the situation because I am good at what I do, and I am the person who eliminates threats to the alphas safety.

The good thing about being a werewolf is that we have a fast metabolism. I ate bacon, eggs, has browns, and 10 stacks of warm gooey golden pancakes. I need to eat a whole lot to keep up my strength. I was trying to come up with strategies for taking the guy out when someone came through the door. It had to be Tolfin who has been my best bud since elementary school, and he is a werewolf like me. He also came to help me with the Vanta Sandy situation, and he comes from my original pack, and with him being there I am less homesick.

My opposite in a several ways, Tolfin has brown and blonde streaked hair and  bluish-grey eyes like a wolf husky. He was wearing a blue American Eagle shirt, and blue jeans with blue sneakers. He is tan from surfing at the beach, and  built like a surfer.

Unlike me who has curly dark brown hair, and chocolate brown eyes. I was born naturally tan, but I became more muscular over the years thanks to lifting weights and mock fights. Werewolves also have fast metabolisms thanks to all the energy we burn up.

He came through the door, and sat down in a black leather chair next to me. “Dude what’s up? Do not be a smartass, and say the sky because you have been moody, and sad ever since that slutty human hurt you, and not to mention you now have Allesha who is one of the hottest girls in our pack. You proved to me you were not over her when you mentioned her in the club. I get it you thought she was the love of your life,” He rolled his eyes, “but she is not your mate so it is not the end of the world.”

I sighed. I knew he would bring it up. The interesting fact about werewolves is they are different from humans because they are not intimate with just anyone. They only share themselves with their one true mate. I do not mean sex though. I mean the bond between the two true soul mates is so strong that a part of them permanently changes forever in body and soul.

A tattoo of a wolf is placed on them once they find each other signaling to other Werewolves that they are part of a true mate bond. Mates know that they have found a true mate bond when they look into each other’s eyes, and their souls merge and shift forever. It does not have to be another werewolf though it can be a human. Although bonding with one is somewhat rare. Risky also because they might want to be turned, and   werewolves do not age at all so the mate would be old, grey, and the wolf would still look young.

I thought Sarah was the love of my life, and that I could not be with anyone else but her. Things were good until I walked in on her with another guy. It was hurtful that she was with someone else, and it tortured me for days knowing what happened. That day I swore that I would not get involved, or talk to another human girl again. They only bring heartbreak anyway.  Hopefully, Allesha will help me heal from the past, and I hate being away from her for so long. She makes me happy, and with her I feel better about things. It helps to be on a mission because it saves me the trouble of harping on the past.

“Whatever I still can’t believe the leader wants us to go to this high school, and take classes we do not need. Why are we going to high school anyway?” I asked Tofin.

Tolfin got mad, “Dude, it is your last year I know you want to graduate, and do something with your life besides this mission. I know you want to get into college, and become a bodyguard so you have to graduate high school. Why this school I have no clue the leader of this pack works in mysterious way, and Devlin said they might be at this high school.”

I had to make a complaint, “I hate dealing with those immature teenagers they are annoying, gossipy, and nasty. The girls are sluts that would do everything that moves. The guys are the same, and they are jerks. They judge each other based on so many things it is ridiculous, and I am getting too old for this.”

He got mad again listening to me make excuses, “Ignore the idiots then your job is school, and you got suspended from the other one. This is the only high school in the county. Graduate already because you should be done by now. Your mission is very important you need a clear head so focus on that. Focus and be prepared to deal with the bloodsucking vamps. They are willing to meet the leader, and come up with a truce to work together.”

Two of our guys heard the vampires are going to be in our classes. I  know there is something the leader is not telling us, and we will find out tonight.

I shook my head. “We will find out when we get there after school. The meeting starts at 5:00, so well after sundown, and that means the myth of them not being able to be in the sun is false.”

Toflfin explained the vampires species better then I did, and he studies them in his spare time, “Those vampires can go in daylight, and depends upon their powers and their age. They can hypnotize people into doing their bidding, and their bite is orgasmic.” He cautioned, “We are immune to their gaze not to their bite. I am not telling you how I know that is a story for another time. ”

I gave him an are – you -crazy look, “Why would I want to let a fanged freak touch me?”

He laughed at the look I gave him, and finally smiled, “Good point you won’t, and more like the vampire will end up staked before that even happens.”

After that we talked for a few minutes more, and I headed out the door with Tolfin to our cars.

Chapter 2:

Oliver

First, my car is a fire engine red Jeep I got a few weeks ago in preparation for the hunt. I am not taking just any car, chasing werewolf hunters is a difficult task. They can sense what we are because they were born with a gene to track us. We have a different system than humans do and a chromosome called Sabine or S that has allowed us to tap into our powers since birth. The gene has to be activated by a ritual stone that is placed on the aura. The gene can lie dormant, and if the gene is not activated the person would lead a normal life. Only people from the tribe have the gene, and people that can handle the gene can turn into werewolves.

I picked up my schedule at the office. My classes are: Astronomy, Theater, Mythology, and Firecall History. Tomorrow I had English, Calculus, Art, and Medieval History. School is more bearable for me, and with these classes it is not so bad.

The halls were crowded, and a few of the students looked like food. The epicenter of all the fear was three mean girls that looked like total bimbos. One was blonde with dull blue eyes and a huge chest that looked like huge water balloons. Two girls flanked her on either sides and they are twins. They have dull black hair and muddy brown eyes. All three of the girls are wearing the same slutty trashy clothes: Black shirts, blue jeans, and high heels. They were heading straight for me terrific. I turned my back and walked away. The leader got so made she followed me and got in my face. “You must be new. I am Terry Daniels and over there are Amber-Lynn and Sarah Lee Robinson. We are the ice cold babe trio, and we run the school.”

I replied “Yes, it seems like it, now stop talking to me you worthless piece of trash. Don’t even waste your breath on talking to me it is not worth it. Don’t say anything else to me ever again either. I do not care if you live or die. Now go jump the football team.”

She cried as she walked, and ran with the Barbie doll twins trailing behind her. And that is how you deal with mean girls. People like them make me sick putting down other people to make themselves feel better is a waste of time.

Now that I have had my fun I go to my first class astronomy. A fun class that involves the planets, and looking at the sky. I sit down at a desk and began to stare into space. Class starts then ends, and I go to theater. The theater teacher taught my favorite topic improvisation, and it is something I use to blend in with the humans. It ends unfortunately because I love that topic.  I meet Tolfin for lunch, and Tolfin and I get in line and then I sit down at a table with Tolfin across from me. I put ketchup on my fries, and was about to eat when I saw her. Not just any girl though the one that makes my heart thump, and oh go Allesha has nothing on this one.

Serena:

Crystal and I got on the bus. We sat at the second seat on the right for four reasons:

One, it was close to the very front. Two To avoid the spit balls kids through at each other. Three the bus driver Ms. Teabody rocks.  The Fourth and last reason  we will not have to deal with the bus for very long.

The last reason is because Crystal is getting her car in December. We have our licenses, but sadly no car.  Until then its enduring people who won’t shut up, and talking so loud that half the bus can hear it with people kicking our chairs. I sat on one of the scratchy vinyl seats, and Crystal sat to my left. I grabbed on a handle with a death grip, and awaited for my trip to the torture chamber.

Twenty minutes later we arrived at the torture chamber we call school complete with torture devices if we don’t have our homework done. Barbed wire so we do not try to get away or skip class and cameras. Okay, kidding about the torture devices, and barbed wire but our school does have cameras, and metal detectors to make sure nothing bad is taken inside school like guns or knives which is crowded as usual with students hurrying two and from classes, and the smell of lemon cleaned mixed with perfume and cologne is in the air.

The school has two stories with stairs and classrooms. The school is painted blue with ceilings and walls to match. The roof surprisingly is red like a cherry blueberry they are the school colors. The mascot is a blue and red shooting star. We have a huge library that is two stories high. We even have our own swim team and pool.

Outside houses a baseball diamond, two tennis courts, and football field, and a huge auditorium. The school is very famous for its sports, and the theater people who won more awards then the football players. It was built in 1996.

First period rolled around, and I had physics which is in room 409. I went to my locker to put away my stuff before class. I keep all kinds of things in there like pictures of shirtless guys, extra clothes in case something happens, and my school supplies. Duh! I got out all I needed for my classes, and started walking to first period. Crystal beside me and I had to tell her what was on my mind. “I got in trouble again for obsessing about the past. She was like how many times are you going to bring them up? They are horrible people. What they did was just plain wrong. I should not think about them, but I can’t help it.”

She sighed. “I know they are horrible. Every time they pass by us they give us a dirty look, and whisper to their friends.” The kids kept filing in. I overheard something very surprising. “Terry joined a cult because she has a tattoo of a wolf on her wrist.” The other person said in an awed tone. “Ooh, I wonder if she howls at the moon.” I passed that off as gossip.

The bell rang and the announcements came on. The pledge was said and there were announcements and they were talking about the Halloween carnival which I am a part of with the theater kids having an art booth next to them. After the announcements were over the teacher began a lecture on motion and gravity. The class passed by in a blur, and before I knew it class was over, and it was off to calculus. When the bell rang we were learning problems, taking notes that are important for tests. We had a surprise quiz, and homework which looked easy to me. Of course, homework was the least of my worries.

The ice cold babe meanies the girls who think they run the school.

I met up with Crystal to walk to lunch, but before I get them I spotted someone I did not want to see in a million years let alone here. It was Terry and her Barbie dolls. Crystal caught up to me to see who I was looking at. One look and I knew she saw what I did.

Terry Daniels is a preppy Prada purse wearing blonde bitch she thinks she is all that, and she wore a tight leather black shirt, and a black mini skirt up to her thigh. People I am sure could tell she wears no bra with red high heels on her size 2 slender feet. She was with her usual band of barbies who are notorious for spreading rumors, backstabbing, and doing everything you could possibly think of to people that is rude or rep ruining.

Their names Amber Lynne and Cindy Lee Robinson. They were both wearing red t shirts and tight blue jeans with black boots. Terry walked up to us and said, “Look who we have here my cousin’s short, psychotic ex-girlfriend. I think my cousin was right to dump your little butt. You who think the world revolves around–.” I spoke in a loud voice interrupting her, “Shut up. and I thought I said sorry for what I did to you, but no you do not listen. You have to insult me because you have nothing better to do.. Go way, and do not waste your breath on insulting me again it is not worth it.” She had tears in her eyes, and she gave me a glare and ran away. The twins did not even bother they just ran to comfort Terry. I am surprised she did not fly off into the wall but I keep a lid on my abilities. Inside I was pissed off. I am so mad I wish the she was dead. I hope she drowns in a pile of her own blood.

After that catastrophe Crystal and I continued walking through the crowded halls to get to lunch. We got in line to get food which was totally inedible except for Stella’s burger and fries, so that is what Crystal and I got. We sat down at one of the red and blue boots in the student commons strictly for seniors. Silence at our table continued as we dug in and ate. The burger tasting so juicy and warm in my mouth, and the fries taste just like the local burger joint which is what makes them so good.

We never talk in the cafeteria because there is always some nosy person listening in and telling us their opinion. But Crystal had other plans and said, “I know you thought that was the right thing to do and give her a taste of her own medicine, but it was kind of mean.” I was shocked she was wise beyond her years. “I guess it was wrong, but I’ll be damned if I let a bitch like that get to again.”

We got finished, and I put my stuff away. I was about to go back to my seat when I saw the hottest guy I have ever seen. Wow…I mean like OMG hot. So cute and hot he could probably melt a girl with his striking green eyes alone. And he is built, and has curly dark touchable brown hair. My heart started beating wildly, and I felt like I was going to throw up, pass out, or both.

I fell over, and almost landed in the trash can. Crystal helped me up, and I quickly walked to the table probably beet red by now.

Chapter 3

Oliver:

My heart stops then beats back up again. Something keeps pulling me towards her like a magnet. Urging me to talk to her, and I ignore it. Realization hits me she is not just any girl the one which is crazy considering I am promised to someone else all the signs are there though. I am mesmerized by her, my heart races every time I see her, I am pulled toward her like a magnet. I ignore it trying to shake myself out of the crazy nonsense. I am moving in with Allesha, and I should not think of anyone else.

My brown eyes met her smoldering ones, and I was lost her red-streaked hair is like a warning sign to me urging me away. She is such a beautiful creature in my eyes even more striking then Allesha my stomach turns to lead as soon as Allesha enters my mind.

The beautiful girl has dark black hair like the night, green eye shadow on her lids like the forest with lips painted like red glass. Those are words to describe the beauty of her. I broke her gaze, and began eating choosing to ignore her for my stomachs sake. She was human after all, and I promised myself to not get involved with a mortal again. I am also promised to Allesha, and I do not think she is the type to back down. I kept trying not to look at her, but it was hard. She looked my way, and I could feel her gaze burning into my eyes.

I  broke the gaze because in the back of my mind was Allesha. It made me wish I had cold water poured down my back. Tolfin picks up my mind thoughts, “Sure thing bro if you wish.” He takes a glass of water with ice in it , and pours it on me. I am cold and wet I ignored her for the rest of lunch hoping to forget about how she makes me feel. She is turning me into a damn poetry loving puppy I curse her for that.

I was surprised to see her in my class, but I ignored her Tolfin has a water bottle with him full of ice reminding me how much I really do not want to be wet right now. I cannot help it the girl is the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. Dating her would mean getting hurt again, and physically hurt by Allesha. Allesha is the fiery red headed werewolf who I am promised to, and I love her more then anything. I really would hate to mess up what I have for allesha. Curse the closet poet in me! I should only make colorful words for Allesha not some random girl I just thought looked hot.

Class started taking my mind off the girl, and a knock on the door got my attention. The teacher stopped what she was doing. I banged my head on the desk. When will the damn day end?

The teacher answered the door, and the day just got worse because  in popped Jason Sullivan and Tony Devrick two vampires I have hated for a very long time. They are annoying, and they make me crazy. Jason goes after, and charms every girlfriend I have except Allesha. If he sees me taking interest in someone he tries to get the girl before I do. Tony is just his shadow who follows him around.  I got mad because he sat next to the girl I find attractive, and began talking to her to make me jealous OH boy was I. She gave me a look before that said a fuck you one.  Jason looked very cozy talking to her which pissed me off to no end seeing the two of them together. I tried to pay attention, and once I thought about the situation I was like who cares I have Allesha. I came here to learn and do a mission then leave the place and her behind so she will not tempt me to hurt Allesha. I still wonder why Jason is even here though. Class ends finally for my sake, and I walk out with Tolfin by my side pissed off. Tolfin talks to me furious about the vampires,  “What the hell are the vampires nuts? Why are Jason and Tony here?”

I reply, “I don’t know.” I continued calmly, “ I did not expect them until we deal with the leading blood idiots I mean sucker.” He laughed finally calming down. “Well, they are both so whatever works rights?”

I smile, “Yep, I guess those two girls they were flirting with are sucked.” And we wind up laughing at our own lame jokes. I walk to my final class, and deal with boring FireCall History.  I meet up with Tolfin and we make our way to the vampire meeting. Yeah the stupid vampires are funny idiots the bunch of them. I still think werewolves are better, and at least we do not need blood to survive. I still hate dealing with them though.

Serena

I met the eyes of the hottest guy I have ever seen in my life. A strange connection happened between us. He was staring at me with an awed expression it’s as if we both recognized each other. He had curly dark brown hair, chocolate brown eyes, and a strongly muscled tan body. His friend was cute to if you are into blonde surfer boys. Dazed I sat back down, and said to Crystal, “Did you see those two hot guys staring at us?”

She replied, “Yes, but I really do not care because we need to focus on other things like the booth.”

“Oh right, maybe we can showcase some of those pictures you did for art class. I can put up my pictures also.”

We deliberately ignored the cute guys because the last thing we need is a cute guy distracting us, and our concentration. I still keep thinking about him, even when I went to mythology, and saw him and his friend there. I know crystal saw his friend to, but she like me was reluctant to get in a relationship.

She was hurt by Ted Swifter who treated her like shit. He would hit her, insult her, and prevent her from using her own cell phone. I got help for her in the form of counceling and the police. Ted went to jail as all jerks like him should go.

I was still thinking about things in class when a knock at the door got everyone’s attention which is not that weird since it is the start of school a month into it. Kids usually come and go here.  The teacher let in two very attractive guys, so you can bet I was really happy for the distraction. One guy had blondish brown hair, and hazel eyes with a lot of muscles and very stylish clothes. He was wearing a black leather jacket, and a black t-shirt and jeans with combat boots the ultimate bad boy in my eyes. His friend had jet black hair, and almond shaped blue eyes built as well with clothes the same as his friend the biker look. The leading guy that made my heart beat talked to the teacher and sat down. One sat next to me the other one sat next to Crystal. I looked over at the hot guy from lunch, and gave him a ha ha I am done with you, and going to the guy next to me look. Four new guys in one day wow it must be my lucky day.  I turned my attention to the new guy with a light Italian accent said, “Hey, my name is Jason Sullivan. The person talking to your friend is Tony Deverick. We just transferred here from Bat Cave High. I know not a traditional school name, but the founding father had an obsession with bats.” I just laughed, “Yeah, funny I guess people really are that crazy.” He was charismatic, hypnotic, and so much nicer than the other asshole who stares at me but ignores me. “Well, the founding father is eccentric. So hmm.. I know how about since your friend is hitting it off with my friend then maybe we can go on a double date Friday?” I excitedly said, “Sure sounds great.” He smiled, “Alright it is a date. By the way what was your name?” I replied, “Serena Starfire.”

“Enchanting Serena maybe you were serene when you were born?”

“Yep and I am adopted, and I never knew my real parents.”

“Hmm.. Never knew that. A special fact about me? I love girls who are different. All of these girls are boring. They gossip. Backstab. Start drama, and  are loud. You and Crystal keep to yourselves and stay off the radar except for the situation with Terry. Of course everyone heard by the way. They are calling you a hero which intrigues me.  I met Terry nothing special just a snobby rich white girl that loves to bully, start drama and obsess over stupid things that will not matter a few years from now which is pathetic. The world needs more like you.”  He turned to the teacher after she finished writing on the board, and class began. After sitting through her lecture on gods and goddesses I thought about what he said over and over again.  Was I really that special? Of course, I never told anyone about my powers, but it still makes me wonder. It makes me wonder about what lies ahead. Will I end up using my powers for good or evil? What are my real parents like? What am I?

Thinking about all those questions made me think about history, and all the changes where I live happened.  Melodia  is the region I live in, and it is a region in the USA created because president Asstard made it. I mean Anton who became president when the former one stepped down because former president Anderson was caught in his office smoking marijuana. It  is not legal though, but people still try to make it. College is free provided a student gets A-B honor roll. It is a good region, and I guess I can thank my adopted mother for raising me when my real mother could not.

I should be paying attention, but it is hard for me to focus on school with so many things going on like ADD, but instead of objects to look at there are situations to think, and mull over making me go crazy from it. I guess as for the hot guy situation ignore mean jerk for now, and deal with the cute Jason guy. I also had a thought, maybe we could look up the four guys to see what they are all about? They have to be hiding something. Why did they show up now? And also how did Jason and Tony transfer here? Why were they giving looks to those mean guys like they were satisfied? Those are the questions I wanted the answers to. I guess I should be paying attention, and the lecture seems interesting. The bell rang, and  then it was off to my last class. English 12 nothing to comment there, but I was zoned out thinking about the hot guy and Jason. Why? At least it is my senior year, and I guess that is something to look forward to. The bell sounds, and it is finally time to go home. I spotted Jason who comes over to me and says, “Hey, sorry we did not get to chat more, but class is something I am serious about. The thing I wanted to ask you earlier is would you like to go on a date this Friday?”

I replied, “Yes, I would love to what time?”

“5:00 dinner then the movie we could see is the Vampire’s Embrace. A story about a girl who finds out her boyfriend is a vampire, and then joins him for all eternity.”

“Great, I love vampire movies.”

“Okay, see you then.” Then he turns around and walks away. I have a whole lot to do before Friday, and I need Crystals help.

Chapter 4:

Oliver

The meeting took place in a huge mansion in Blood Fire county which houses the vampire community. The vamps have gotten so huge in number that they created another county just for them. They outnumber the werewolves by a thousand, and Tolfin and I are going to meet at the gate with Volderius first to discuss the strategy for dealing with the vampires.

Volderius is our ruthless but good leader who is good at this job. I drive with Tolfin to meet with Volderius. I heard some things about the leader of the vampires. The leader of the vampires is named Staven Leopard. Staven was sired in the 1800s by a man named Sauril Yourn an Italian who started the Revolution of the Sovereign. The Revolution of the Sovereign was created between two vampire clans for territory.

I got to the huge place it looked like a castle with towers and gargoyle statues, and guarded by blue and red dragons that had eyes like red jewels with smoke coming out of their nostrils. I was very far away in the lot with Tolfin who was gaping at the dragons. “What the hell? Oh my god how cool is that real dragons.”

I replied, “Yep, even better then guard dogs as usual. I doubt people will mess with a dragon.” The leader appeared in a limo because he is the type to arrive in style. A driver opened the door for him. The leader with his dark brown hair and brown eyes who dresses in black all the time, and ladies always surrounded him except today because of the meeting.  He came up to us not very pleased, “Are you ready to talk with the bloodsuckers? I do not want to go to them, but the Vanta Sandy situation escalated when one of the vampires was attacked. The vampire was  staked by Vanta Sandy, and his merrily band of dumbasses that will do anything he says like the good little puppets they are. It is not just werewolves he is after, but vampires because they deserved to die according to him. One of his men must have been hurt or killed by a vampire.” Tolfin asked, “We do have to try to be civil with them sir, last time we nearly got our heads taken off because of a dragon.”

I spoke up not wanting the dragon to be seen as an evil monster, “The dragon attacked because its owner was threatened.” Volderius nodded, “I will not be violent with them we need their help, and apparently they need ours. Dragons would be a neat creature to have for guarding the mansion. Dragons could protect me better then my men sometimes.” Everyone laughed at that, but he had a good point since people would not mess with a dragon.

We proceeded to walk to the castle/mansion like place with vampire guards watching our every move.  After we got past the scary dragons guarding the gate. Tolfin, Volderius And I are led into a big hallway with two big staircases heading up to the second floor. The house is done in yellow walls, and pictures of vampires throughout history lined every inch of the wall space, and  more pictures of vampires such as Staven’s creator, and a whole bunch of other vampires vital to their history rest in gold frames.  The huge hallway led into a gothic living room done in black, and red. The living room has  red walls, and black leather furniture that screamed he was rich.  The leader Staven sat at a big ornate table with Jason on one side, and Tony on the other. A couple of vampires that were unfamiliar sat in the rest of the chairs. There were three seats on the very end reserved for the three of us. Our leader sat on one side and Tolfin sat on the other, so that Tolfin and I were surrounding the leader to prevent him from being unprotected.

The leader had blonde hair, and green eyes with an acidic expression that thought he did not want to deal with us the werewolves. Oh boy, this is going to go fine or not. The leader Staven spoke in a very unhappy tone and sighed, “I understand that we need to get together to work on abolishing this threat, but I really do not like it. For years you guys have been a barb in our flank, but I can agree to working with you guys for the time being. You guys maybe wondering why Tony, and Jason are going to the same high school as the two boys to either side of you. The reason is obvious, but the werewolves as I understand do not know about it yet, and you only know there are two girls going there that need to be found. My sources tell me that two unique girls go there that are more than normal, ordinary, human girls. They are the legendary Skylon, and The Waterlon who is guards  the Skylon. Supposedly the Skylon’s and Waterlons parents were killed by a sorcerer, but they were separated to hide from him. They have no idea about their extraordinary heritage. They have reunited at the high school, but I do not think they know what they are.  I have constructed a device that I am giving to my boys and yours as well.  The device that I am giving you detects skylon and waterlon energy, and if it senses one it glows a pigment like aquamarine since it  detects their vitality. The energy the girls give off, and they are the same color because their power comes from the same  vital source their realm lives from .   It is a necklace that came from a different part of the world. It looks like this.” That is why the leader wanted me and Tolfin to go to the high school, so that is what the two girls are to make them warrant that much attention. I doubt humans would get attention anyway they are just a food source to the vampires, and toys to werewolves.

He held up a gold chain with a pendant attached to a clear crystal. I read about the crystal it looked like an ordinary quartz crystal, but it was not ordinary garden variety quartz crystal though. It is called a Lightnight which glows when there is Skylon energy, and  it is really rare to find those things. They cost well over 100,000 dollars, and some consider it an ancient artifact. It makes me wonder what else he kept hidden since he took a rare rock out that costs a fortune, and it makes me wonder if the vampire leader does have some skeletons in his closet.

Volderius said, “My, My  a pretty rock, and I am assuming my boys get one each. I think that covers it.” I take the rock Staven gives us, and it feels warm in my hand. I doubt it would have reacted to me anyway since I am a werewolf. I toss it to Tolfin who puts it in his pocket because I trust him to keep track of it better then I could.

“We will keep in touch and let you know if we find anything. You have my number. So boys,” he looked at us, “let’s ride.”

We got up, and walked out. The leader was mad at us. I could tell by the way his shoulders were set. I do not care though. We get back to the car to discuss the plan. The three of us make it back to the car alive and in one piece thankfully.  Volderius asked Tolfin and I with an unhappy tone, “So boys is there any girls that stand out?”

I answered him, “A few right now we need the rock to confirm it. I guess we can’t be to sure until the rock reacts to them, and then both of them will be questioned.” Tolfin nodded in agreement, and his eyes lit up thinking about the blonde maybe?  “Yeah, I saw one possibility as Oliver just said I can take the rock to see if she reacts to it.”  I knew he was talking about those two girls we both saw. We both got the same hit. You could say we are on to something there could be a possibility that those two girls are the Skylons. It would not surprise me if it were her though. Something about her intrigues me, but I cannot get involved with her. I am already taken by someone. Allesha is very important to me, so no romantic connection is worth ruining what me and Allesha have. Enough of that the important thing is finding if they are the ones we are looking for.  If so I have a bad feeling that she is going to get in the way of Allesha and me. The girl is prettier then Allesha. Talking to her makes me giddy that such  a creature exists. Her being non-human helps, and her powers will be a good thing for the pack.

Tolfin and I arrive at my mansion. Volderius left after we parted ways when the meeting was over. Tolfin and I need to have a talk about the girls. I sit down in the living room. “The girls in our class are the girls we are searching for aren’t they?” He nods, “Yep the blonde is pretty cute, and the brunette is not that bad looking either.” I laugh then look at him expectantly, “True, can I ask you something?”  He sighed, “Is this about the weird connection you have with the brunette? I have the same connection with the blonde.” He looks down, and looks back gaze intent. “I have never felt this kind of connection before, and I talked to another member of the pack about the connection.” He laughed. “What?” I inquire curiosity prompting me to ask him. “The connection means that the girl is your true soulmate.” My eyes widen, and a chill goes up my spine. Allesha is not the one.
