Spirit of Wolf and Water

Cora is a normal 17 year old girl, she has a barn, and has her friends who have her back. Her father died three years ago and her and her mother dont spend very much time together anymore. But when a cougar attacks Cora and she is saved by a siren named Tuari, they go through the challenges of the water curse together. Even though Cora and Tuari live together and they know each other quite well, does Cora know Tuari well enough? Is Tuari all she says she is? Will Cora ever put the pieces of the mysterious attacks together or will it lead to a place she doesnt want to go?

~Cora~ 

The past month and a bit have been a little difficult. I sold all my horses, even Tundra. I didnt want to but I had to, we needed the money. Don't get me wrong I love living in the new house, I get to go on midnight swims in the pool on the roof. But it just wasn't the same. I missed having Kota right next door, but ever since I kicked Tuari out of the house and cried like a baby for basically no reason, Im a little embarrassed to see him. That was another thing that felt weird, not having Tuari constantly behind me. Watching me. When I think of it now it actually creeps me out. Who knows if I could've even trusted her, but she was gone and I was on my own with this whole Siren thing. It wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it would be but it isn't easy either. For some reason when I transform in salt water I now have gills. Was that normal? I had no idea, I never really payed attention to Tuari's neck. But since I stopped feeding when Tuari left, the hunger pains get worse every day. I have no Idea how long I could fight it off, but I had to. I will not kill a human being. 

 

10pm and I still wasn't tired. I sat in my room and looked out to the ocean, wishing to be apart of what it so desperately wanted to share with me. Mom and Jon were out yet again, I was honestly happy for them. I loved them both. Im not sure what happened but when I saw how happy mom was when she told me he proposed, I couldn't not be happy for her. So I decided to stop being so closed minded towards him and turns out he is actually a really great person. It makes me feel a little bad that I hated him for so long. There is only one thing that still bugs me, the both of them are almost out every night. It gets a little lonely. 

 

Just as I was putting on my black bikini to go for a swim I heard a knock at the door. I quickly threw on some sweat pants and a tank top and ran down the stairs to answer the door to Kota standing with a huge book in his hands, "Hey." He said and smiled at me, "Hi, come on in," Kota put the book down on the kitchen counter and looked at me with a serious expression, "So Tuari came by my house this morning," I widened my eyes, "Why?" He pointed to the book, "She said you were different and would need it." I shook my head, "I don't want it." Kota sighed, "Common Cora just look at it." I shook my head, "No. I have no reason to trust her." He shrugged and decided to leave it. We were silent for several moments, "This is the first you've been here." I said to him. Obviously he knew that, but its been about a month and he still never came to visit. We barely talked anymore. He nodded slowly, "Yah I know. Its nice." I gave him a small smile, it made me sad that we were like this. "Well if you wanted to see the pool I was going to go for a swim when you knocked." He blushed, "Oh sorry." I giggled and waved him off, "Well do you wanna see it or what?" He shrugged again, I rolled my eyes and started walking up the stairs to get to the large pool. The sky was dark but the pool glowed beckoning me to jump in. It was deep no matter where you were, it was perfect for me. I smiled at it and started taking off my sweatpants and then tank top revealing my black bikini. When I looked at Kota I saw him staring at the scars on my back yet again. When he saw me looking at him he blushed and looked up at the stars. That was my time to jump in. When I did I felt free and the water hugged my body, I felt my legs go numb and then turn into my delicate grey and aqua tail. Although tonight it was looking a little more aqua than normal. But I decided to think nothing of it. When I popped my head above the water Kota was sitting at the far end just staring at me. I smiled and swam over to him, the familiar feeling of cutting through the water making me grin even more. When I popped up again he looked slightly frightened, "You ok?" I asked and he then started to relax a bit, "Yup." But that was way to fast to be convincing, I then pulled myself onto the edge of the pool beside him. He watched my tail slowly disappear back into my legs. He smiled a little bit, "Kota whats wrong?" He sighed quietly and just stared at the water for a moment, "I just don't understand why you won't be open to looking at the book." I snorted, "Really? This is still about the book?" He looked at me in surprise, "Kota I have barely seen you over the past month. We barely talk and you haven't come over once, and then you just show up and demand that I now trust Tuari. Im sorry but I don think so." He was silent for a moment, "Well Im sorry if I worry about you." I rolled my eyes, "How could I possibly know that?" He shrugged. I hated all the shrugging, all the sighing and awkward silences. He can't come in here and demand I trust someone who treated me so poorly. I then just got up and grabbed my clothes and headed to my room. It took about ten minutes for Kota to come down the stairs and knock on my door. I was now in PJ pants and a tank top. His head was down and his hands were shoved in his pockets, "Im going to leave the book here. It was meant for you and you can do whatever you want with it." I nodded slowly, not totally sure what he was getting at, "Im sorry I haven't been much help for all this Siren stuff but I have no idea how to help. I can really only get in your way." My eyes went wide, "What? Kota no you don't, you are there and thats enough." He shook his head, "But it really isn't, and as much as I missed you I couldn't bring myself to come over here." I cocked my head slightly in question, "Kota I have no idea where you are going with this," He finally looked at me, right at me with his big green eyes. "Cora I don't think you should be around me anymore." My eyes widened as I tried to fight tears, "WHAT?!" I was so confused, "I have done nothing! Nothing to make you do this!" He was my best friend and he was now changing his mind, "You fed on me." That made my heart sink, "You chose to help." He nodded, "Yes I did, and Im glad you are ok. But you are dangerous. I can't have you around if Im afraid you are going to kill me every time you are around me." There was now no stopping tears from streaming down my face. I put my face in my hands, and when I looked up Kota was gone.
