New Moon Rising

Growing up in Dark Moon was a struggle for me not because i was only half werewolf but because i was also half witch. Everyone hated me, stayed away from me, or pitied me. It was something i didn't need. So when i got out i was happy. I promised myself i would never go back. I wouldn't let anyone else make me feel like i was less than trash anymore. My freedom didn't last as long as i hoped though

“Yeah well….”

I trailed off not knowing what to say about that whole situation I need to figure me out before I decide to get serious with anyone. Plus I didn’t know her all that well and she was just talking to Aurora.

“Well what?” she asked curiously.

“It’s nothing, so are you the secretary Liam was telling me about.”

“Its ok if you don’t trust me yet there’s plenty of quality getting to know me time, since I am that secretary.”

I smiled, I knew I was going to like her, she had a warm smile that lit up her face, and kind hazel eyes.

“Ok then, he was telling me about the funeral stuff, but he said you could tell me more sense you gave him all the paperwork.

“Yeah I can do that later, are you hungry?”1

“I could eat.”

“You missed lunch, but I could make you a sandwich or something.” she asked heading over to the fridge.

“I can do it myself if you want to just show me where everything is.”

“I insist so just sit there and let me do it.”

“Well ok if you say so.”

She pulled some rye bread from what I’m assuming was the pantry, next she went to the fridge and pulled out some meat, tomatoes pickles, mayonnaise, and lettuce.

“Umm no lettuce please.”

“Its good for you.” she said scrunching her eyebrows together.

“Its also disgusting, I hate the texture, and the way it feels in my mouth. If you have spinach I’ll take that instead.”

“How can you eat spinach, but not lettuce.”

“I don’t know spinach just taste better.”


“Ok.”

She returned the lettuce back to the fridge and grabbed some spinach. When she was done making my sandwich she sat it on a plate and cut it in half.

“ I don’t know how you knew, but that’s the only way I can eat a sandwich.”

“Uhh I know I feel like a little kid but at least I’m not stuffing my face with a large ass sandwich.”

“Exactly.”

I took a bit of the sandwich it taste amazing, I love roast beef and the crunch of the pickle just makes it better.

James walks into the kitchen and takes a look at me before heading over to the fridge.

“Well I’m going to go I have I stuff to finish up. I’ll see you later.”

I look at her with pleading eyes to stay in the kitchen but she’s motioning me to talk to him. She gives me a smile before leaving. I focus on my sandwich and take a bite. It was a little to soon for me to talk to him. I needed time to think, I didn’t want to be rushed into anything.

“How’s the sandwich?”

He leans against the counter with his cup in his hand. He’s taken a shower and shaved the scent of his after shave has me unconsciously inhaling. I wish my body didn’t react the way it did around him.

“It’s good.”

I’m going to keep my answers short so maybe he’ll take the hint and leave.

“I see you’re making friends, that’s good.”

“Yeah I guess.” I say taking another bite of my sandwich.

“She’s nice you’ll like her.”

“Did you sleep with her too, cause I’d like a list. I don’t want girls coming after me like I did something wrong.”

Omg where did that come from and here I am trying to avoid confrontation. I’m the one who’s making it. I can tell he’s trying to control his emotions but the death grip on his cup and the fact that his eyes are a steely gray are giving it all away.

“No I didn’t sleep with her, and who the hell is talking to you?” he ask through clenched teeth.

“Know what it doesn’t even matter you’re grown, you can sleep with whoever you want to.”

I finish off my sandwich and take my plate over to the sink and wash it, I could have used a drink right now my throat was dry from the bread and from my sudden outburst at James. I make my way to leave the kitchen but he grabs my arm and pushes me into the counter. His body is pressing into my mine and I feel a heat begin to rise through me.

“Who is bothering you?”

“James let go of me, no one’s bothering me. Just forget what I said it was stupid.”

The whole time I was looking at my feet, I knew if I looked in his eyes I’d be saying things I didn’t want to say. He lifted up my chin with his fingers and stared deeply into my eyes. I had to resist the urge to run my fingers through his hair and kiss him.

“If you said it its not stupid.?”

“Look Aurora just said some stupid stuff to me but I’ve been wearing my big girl panties for twenty-six years now. I can handle myself, I don’t need your help with this one.”

He clenched his jaw, and ran his fingers through his hair, something I’ve noticed he’s been doing a lot of lately. He gave me a hard look one last time and let me go. I slipped around him and made my way out of the kitchen and back to where Liam’s office was. He was deep in thought when I stopped in front of his door I almost didn’t want to interrupt him. I knocked on his door and he looked up and smiled at me.

“We still have several hours before we meet up, but if you want to go now.”

“Oh no, I just wanted to know where Julianne’s room is.”

“Oh yeah is two doors down from your room.”

“Thanks, well I’ll let you get back to your work.”

“Okay see you later.”

I smile and head back up to where my room is he said two doors down but on the right or the left. I took a chance and knocked on the second door to the right.

“Just a minute.”

Julianne’s voice rang out from the other side of the door. I breathed out a sigh of relief thankful it wasn’t someone else.

“Hey come on in.” she said motioning me inside.

He room was a lot like mine except for her walls were a pastel blue, she had a sleigh bed and a flat screen TV in her corner.

“I was wondering if you could fill me in on the people who are coming. I haven’t been here in so long, I don’t want to make a fool of myself. That is if you’re not busy.”

“No problem I can do that. Your father was an important alpha , he sat in on the council so a few of the dignitaries will becoming.

“Right I forgot about that. I won’t have to fill in for that position too will I?”

“No more than likely they will find someone else to replace him, but they probably will want to meet you. Dignitaries from each country will be here. I’ll give a list of names to go over they’ll be here in three days so you’ll have time to look them over. Also we can expect a lot of the alpha’s from other packs to attend I’d say close to three hundred and fifty. The ballroom we’ll be having food and refreshments it can handle all of the people. Of course there will be security Liam will be in charge of that we can’t have anything going wrong with all of the important people coming.”

“I definitely don’t want anything going wrong. I’ve talked to Liam already to he came and found me.”

“Well that’s basically all you need to know I can print up a list of alphas with there photos next to it and give it to you by the end of the day, or now if you like it won’t take long to compile.”

“Now would be nice, if it’s not too much trouble.”

“Ok just follow me.”

She got up from her bed and walked to her door, I followed behind as we made our way down the stairs again. We past Liam’s office, he was still hard at work, three doors down on the right is where her office was. She took a key from around her neck and unlocked her door. She flipped on her light and made her way to her desk turning on her computer. I sat in silence and watched as she worked at her computer. The steady rhythm of her fingers hitting keys a million miles per minute. I wondered if this is what I looked liked when I worked. Focused on getting the job done without being interrupted. I took a look around her office, she had lots of photos of family and friends. Something I didn’t have until I went off to college. She looked up from her computer and gave me a smile.

“I’m all done just have to wait for it to print.”

“Ok.”

She closed down what she was working on and closed her computer. One hundred crisp pages later I was headed back to my room to look over all the attendees. She had listed the main people first. European alpha and his wife Delaine and Salene Seville, Leandros and Isabella Marcellus from south America. My head was swimming with names of people I needed to remember by the time I was supposed to meet Liam. I stood from my desk and stretched a little, what I really wanted to do was take a nap. I looked at my bed longingly, a knock on my door distracted me from such thoughts.
