To Play Cat and Mouse

Dedicated to my cat.
Alex is about to find out about her past. But her past is already full of hurt and hate, what more can there be to it? then she finds out a secret, one she will have to control, if it doesn't control her first...


1. Is everyone "Perfect?"


"Hey Babe!" Jake comes to sit next to me out in the garden. It's the one place I can feel myself thinking. It's quiet, well, until Jake came along.

"Hi Sweetheart! How was work today?" I reply, kissing him on the cheek. He pulls a face and kisses my forehead.

"And how was school today?" he askes me. I growl in response as he bursts into laughter.

"Really Alex! You shouldn't have a response like that to school!"

I gave him my award winning smile and in response to that, he pulls me closer.

"You know... That smile always makes me want to kiss you," he whispers in my ear.

"Well, I'm not complaining," I whisper back. "And you're just prefect,"

Suddenly, he straightens up and stops smiling. Then he looks at me and I have never been more scared in my life. He has never made that face before and I think about when all previous boyfriends have made that face. It's normally before they saying those words from hell...  But I banish those thought from my head, because Jake and I love each other, didn't we?

A bird flies into the tree in the garden. It was Sylvie, a blackbird I had named because she had a nest in the tree, and hey, I was bored!

"Good evening to you Sylvie," I mutter to her and she squawks in reply to me. Jake gives me a look.

"You named a bird Sylvie?" he askes. "Yeah, it's a nice name!" I say, defensively. He gives me a sad smile. His skin starts to change to fur, and he lays on the floor as his body starts to changes shape. Finally, I have a tiger in front of me. He nuzzles into my lap and starts to purr. The sound startles Sylvie and she flies out of the tree.

"Oi! You just startled Sylvie! Change back human now!" I scold him. he gives me a look and he changes back human.

"You know we can do  that?" he asks. I nod in response. "Well then, I need to tell you something," he continues and settles down to tell me and a long story.

"I'm waiting!" I remind him a couple of minutes later.

"Sorry, I'm trying to put it into words, It's from when I was 13," Jake never talks about before he was 16...

He takes a deep breath and starts:

I was home from school and my dad called me into his lab. I told you my dad was dead because I was, and still am, ashamed of what he did, and still does.

Anyway, he called me to his lab and asks me to stand into the corner, while he sorted something out. next thing I knew, I was knocked out and asleep. I woke up and I was chained to a board and I striped naked at the chest. And my dad was inserting this thing into my arm. I was screaming at him to stop, but he carried on. It was like pain I had never felt before. It was like my body was changing.

When I woke up next, I was a changed boy. I had what my dad called a perfect gene in me. I was like Edward Cullen, what? Oh, I'm even better than him? I like that! Anyhow, I was perfect. A couple of years later I saw you, you were exactly like me. You have the perfect gene like me.
