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?


30. Cora


My smile didnt fade when i walked into my parents trembling arms. 
"Please never do that again Cora, you had us worried sick." 
"Im sorry mum." 
And with one final squeeze we all headed into the house. I went up to my room, still a smile on my face as i continued to breathe in leighs musky scent. But my smile vanished when i stepped foot into my room. Kota was sitting on my bed. 
"What are you doing here." 
"Your parents let mewait for you to get home. I was worried." 
"I thought you didnt care anymore." 
"Cora please dont do that, you know this hurts me as much as it does you." 
I felt my face grow hot in anger, 
"No i wouldnt know that kota. You stopped talking to me, completely walked out." 
As he stood across the room from me he looked sad, and like he hadnt slept in weeks. 
"Im sorry.." escaped his lips as he slowly walked towards me, "i didnt know what to do. I was scared." he was infront of me now, "cora please say something." 
I was speachless. Kota had walked out on me which broke me. I didnt know if i could forgive him, but here be was trying to pick up the peices. 
"But you walked out." 
His eyes grew even more sad, his head lowered. 
A nodd, "i know." he took my hand in his, "but i am here now, willing to make up for what i have done." 
I still couldnt believe it. But what about leigh? There was something about him that i wanted to know more about. But kota was here saying sorry, leigh didnt alter this.. Right? 
Tears grew in my eyes as i started to break infront of kota all over again.
"You walked out." i said trying to get my words out clearly, "you left me when you knew i had no one else. You were m..  everything kota and you left." 
Kota embraced me and i felt every ounce of sorry emitting from his body. 
"I am so sorry cora." he hugged me tighter, "i wont leave again, i promise." 
I pulled away to look at him and i could tell he was serious, i nodded and a small smile appeared on my face. 
He whipped the tears from my eyes and then i hear my mom calling my name from downstairs. 
"Cora! The door is for you!"
I shimmied down the stairs to the door and to my suprise it was leigh. Perfect timing, i thought.
"Uh hi!" i giggled, "i didnt expect to see you so soon." 
He put his muscley arm up to scratch his head nervously and blushed, "about that," he began to blush even harder, "can we go on like a walk or something?" 
I nodded, butterflies in my stomach making me excited. 
"Oh but one sec." i ran into the living room to where kota now stood.
"Whos that?" kota asked, "his names leigh, he was the one who brought me back into town today." 
He nodded slightly. 
"Kota im going to go on a walk with him for a bit-" 
"What for" he interrupted.
"To talk. Something wrong with that?" 
He shook his head and left without another word. 
"Shall we?" i said closing the front door and leading leigh to a near by trail that lead to the beach. 
We walked in silence for several moments before one of us dared to break the noisless conversation. 
"When i said dont be a stranger i didnt excpect to see you so soon," i said trying to lighten the mood. 
He shrugged, "yah well i couldnt stop thinking about you." he smiled at me, "youre different. Like me." 
I smiled at him, "yah, i dont feel so alone anymore." 
"Exactly!" he gave me a side hug as we kept walking along the sunlight spotted trail. 
"I dont want to stop talking to you now." 
I blushed, "me either" 
Infront of us was calm blue water glissening in the early afternoon sun.
"Ill race you in," leigh said with a competitive smirk on his face.
"Not if i beat you too it!" i said as i stripped off his hoodie and started running towards the water, leigh at my side. Both of us diving into the salty liquid. We resyrface only inches apart, leigh taking me all in and i doing the same.
"There is just something about you," he said softly, his hazel eyes putting me in a trance. Not even allowing me to notice his hands on my cheeks pulling my lips towards his. When we collided everything stopped. The ocean grew still, everything was silent, time just stopped. My heart fluttered and my stomach flipped, i wanted this. I wanted him. We kissed softly at first and then with great passion as we pulled eachother closer creating our own rythm. I could feel his want for me under my fingers as i pulled him into me wanting more. The moment was utterly percect and blissful until a snap from the woods drew us apart and i saw kota at then end of the trail. 
Leigh looked at me in confusion, "who was that?" 
"I-im not sure." i lied.
It took me a moment to bring my gaze back to leighs face, and he was already looking at me with a goofy grin on his face.
"What is it?" i asked with slight concern, no one had ever looked at me like that before. 
"Youre beautiful."
I blushed and smiled at him. 
"Youre wonderful." 
He smiled even bigger back at me.

We headed back to shore and up the trail again in silence, but one i was okay with. 
"Hey cora?" 
"Mm?" i said being brought back from yhe memory of the intense kiss we shared on the beach. 
"I met you today," 
"That is correct," 
"And we kissed,"
"Yes we did," i said in a blissful tone 
"That isnt weird to you?" 
I thiught for a moment. The fact that i had just shared an amazing kiss with a person ive only known for several hours now should have been weird. But it wasnt. There was something about the way leigh made me feel that didnt make this weird. 
I shook my head, "i dont feel weird about it. Do you?"
Without hesitation he replied, "no." 
We smiled at eachother and walked out of the wooded path towards his truck.
"I guess this is goodbye for now," i said leaning against his driver side door.
"Only for now," he half smirked and pecked me on the lips.
I frowned a little.
"Ill be back soon. I promise." 
He grabbed my hips and pulled me in for another breath taking kiss that made me want him more. 

When we broke away i finally let him into his truck. 
"Here," i said grabbing a pen i saw on his dashboard and writing my number onto his hand. "Call me soon." 
He smiled at his hand and looked up at me starting his car.
"Absolutely." and with the roar of his engine he was off.
