12. The 'Shut Down'

Lillie’s Pov I woke up to two firm arms wrapped around my waist and soft fingers tracing patterns on my arms. A smile blossomed onto my face as I remembered last night. I turned around in Jacobs arms, to find him already staring at me with a smile of his own.

“Good morning beautiful” he whispered

“Hi” I breathed.

“As much as I would love to stay and lay here with my gorgeous mate” He placed a soft, lingering kiss on my forehead, “I have to go and train, otherwise they would be stuck with Evie, and that’s not a good idea.” He let out a laugh and then looked back down to me. “You can go back to sleep.”

“No I want to see you train, and I want to meet your family” I laughed, but inside I was nervous, what if they didn’t like me? From the way Jacob talked about them last night, I knew that they meant a lot to him.

“Hey” a nudge startled me from my thoughts, “They are going to love you, trust me” ………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. We were walking towards the clearing when I heard a booming voice escape through the trees.

“Good morning everyone, how are we all this fine morning”, I could tell the voice was female, and very sarcastic. I looked up at Jacob, who had the biggest grin on his face.

“What’s so funny?”

“That was Evie, she’s teasing them.” At the mention of Evie’s name I suddenly became nervous. The boys I wasn’t too worried about, but what if she thought that I wasn’t good enough for him? I was about to turn around and tell Jacob that I wanted to go back to bed when the booming voice continued.

“Now as you can see Jacob is busy this morning so training will be run by me today” the pack grumbled in response. “Today we will start with our hand to hand combat and some more training in human form. You will be splitting up into groups based on your age, skill and fitness levels. All women and the majority of teenagers from 13 to 15 will be training with Ben and Tyler. Men from the ages of 16 to 25 are training with Skylar, and everyone else is with me. You may be moved to another group if we believe you need to be moved, you will NOT move yourself, am I clear? ” My pack replied with a chorus of yesses. “Okay let’s start training.”

Now I was terrified, she sounded so powerful and strong, how on earth was she going to be excited to meet me.

“You’re shaking, are you okay?” Jacob stepped in front of me and lowered his head to my level.

“I-I’m fine.” I stuttered.

“She’s not really that scary, she is just acting like that because she doesn’t like most the people in the pack. Trust me when I say that she is going to be ecstatic when she finally gets to meet you. She may put up a hard front when you first meet her, she’s not easily trusting, but she will love you!”

“How did you know?”

“All in good time” and with that he stepped into the clearing, dragging me with him. I almost couldn’t believe what I saw. Evangeline was standing in the middle of a group of men fighting one of the pack warriors. She was going to get killed! We were still walking towards the group when a boy, around 17 stepped in front of us.

“I heard you had found you mate, but I didn’t believe it” the boy scoffed. Jacob let go of my hand and hugged him, I realised that he was one of the brothers.

“Lillie, I want you to meet my youngest brother Ben.” Ben did an extravagant bow, and gently kissed my hand.

“Mademoiselle” he replied, Jacob gave a short laugh and pushed him over. Ben started laughing and brushed himself off as he stood up, “congratulations, the others would come over but they have groups to train”.

“I understand, what’s going on over there?” Jacob nodded in the direction of Evangeline.

“Same old, same old, testosterone filled males offended that they are being trained by a girl so Evie shows them who’s boss.” I looked over Ben’s shoulder to see the warrior of the ground and Evangeline standing over him not even puffing.

“Is it safe?” Jacob asked Ben, laughter creeping into his voice.

“Oh yeah, she’s fine. She wouldn’t stop talking about you two all morning.”

“See, nothing to worry about.” Jacob told me. Ben left to go back to his group and we continued on our way towards Evie. As we got closer I could hear what she was telling them.

“When you are facing your opponent, it is best to start with a defensive technique as you try and work out their weakness. Get into pairs and try this, do not seriously injure your opponent. If I hear and bones snap, I will snap the same bones on you. ” the men nodded stiffly “When you have picked out your opponents weakness attack it and bring him down , then start again, GO!” she yelled and all the men started fighting their opponents.

She circled around all the pairs, sometimes stopping them and giving tips or telling them to be more careful. Jacob cleared his throat loudly causing Evie to turn around at look at him. I swear I died a little bit inside, she was gorgeous. When her gaze shifted to me a beautiful smile graced her face and she started to walk towards us.

Suddenly I was being enveloped in a massive hug by the one person I thought would turn up their nose at the sight of me. She pulled back and studied me; at this point I thought she would push me away but instead she hugged me again. I let out a small laugh and hugged her back.

“Alright, you can stop hugging her now. I think you cutting off her air supply” Jacob slightly scolded his sister.

“I’m fine with it really” I laughed back. She pulled back once again and put her hands on my shoulders as she looked at me intently. Her eyes clouded over and her hands tightened on my shoulders, it didn’t hurt put something was happening. Jacob noticed and called out to her as he took her hands off my shoulders.

“Evie, Evie, look at me.”

“What’s happening” a male voice sounded behind me. “She’s having another episode. I can’t pull her out of it you’re going to have to do it Skylar.”

The man that I now know as Skylar pushed in front of me and took Jacob’s spot in front of Evie. Jacob came and stood beside me and put his arm around my shoulders.

“What did I do?” I asked him.

“You didn’t do anything, unfortunately this just happens sometimes.” His face pulled into a frown as he stared at his sister’s blank face and cloudy eyes.

“What exactly is happening?” I questioned as Skylar continued to stare into Evie’s soulless eyes.

“Remember how you asked me how I knew what you were thinking?” I nodded, urging him to continue. “Well the reason my brothers and sister live together is because we are all white wolves”, a small gasp left my mouth, “it’s a well-known fact around the world, but Evie is the strongest out of all of us and that has side effects”.

The entire time he was explaining, he was staring at Evie. I could tell he was worried, but he continued anyway.

“What’s happening at the moment is what we call a shut-down. When she’s too stressed or losses a hold on her powers, she…. shuts down. So when she touched you her powers showed her a glimpse of your life and then they took hold. So what we have to do now is try and get her to come back.”

“What do you mean ‘showed her my life’?”

“One of her powers and I’m guessing the one that pushed her over the edge, is being able to see your life with just one touch. She didn’t mean to do it, god I should’ve seen the signs” he sighed out and stepped away from me and towards her.

“How are you going Skylar?” Jacob asked.

“She’s coming back, I can feel it.” He replied.

“So, you all have powers?” I asked quietly, not wanting to make the situation worse.

“Yeah, Ben is controlling all the pack members so they don’t notice what’s happening.” I took a look around and noticed that the pack was in fact not paying attention to what was happening.

“We all have basic telepathic and telekinetic abilities; I’ll explain the rest later.” Jacob explained. All of a sudden Evangeline took a sharp intake of breath and bent over and started breathing heavily.

“Hey, hey, Evie look at me, look at me god dammit!” Skylar yelled frustrated. She slowly raised he head to look him in the eye. Skylar let out a breath of relief and pulled her into a tight hug. She looked over his shoulder at me and gave me a small smile.

“Sorry about that, this is not how I imagined we would meet.” Skylar let her go and took a step back.

“Are you okay?” He asked casually, all signs of the desperate man he was before long gone. He seemed like a very closed off person.

“You know I’m fine Sky, nothing I haven’t dealt with before” she replied slowly, looking much more tired than she had before.

“Why didn’t you tell us you weren’t coping? We could have helped!” Jacob said obviously frustrated.

“I don’t need you to look after me all the time.” She snapped back. Jacob let out a large sigh and ran his fingers through his hair. In any other circumstances I would have drooled at the sight. He took another step towards her and enveloped her in a hug of his own.

“I’m sorry, you know how I feel about your shut downs” he mumbled into her hair. She pulled back and gave him a smile. They were obviously communicating through their mind link.

“Well, I have some werewolves to whip into shape” she clapped her hands and turned to go back to her group when Skylar spoke up.

“You sure that’s a good idea? You know how you get after these things happen.” Evie stopped and slowly turned back around. Her eyes flashed dangerously as she looked at Skylar, he put his arms up as if he were surrendering. “Don’t say I didn’t warn you”.

She looked over to me and smiled. “I’ll see you later Lillie, it was nice meeting you, and sorry you had to see that.” Her smile turned sad as a foreign voice invaded my mind. “We will talk about what I saw in your head later. I think it would be a good idea to tell Jacob though, he deserves to know. And he will help, trust me.”

She gave me one last kind look and continued towards the group of fighting warriors.
