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


8. Well that escalated quickly

I lay on the ground for a moment trying to catch the breath

that had been knocked out of me. Liam came over and nuzzled  

my fur with his nose. I smiled and stood up on my shaking legs

and strecthed. The sound of my bones popping echoed

through the woods. I shifted back to my human form and

pulled my knees to my chest. There was no need for shyness

thanks to Zoe, but she wasn't in control anymore. Call me

crazy but I wasn't ready for Liam to keep getting free looks at

my naked form. I wasn't as free spirited as other wolves when

it came to nudity.

"So do you wanna go for a swim?" I asked when he shifted back to human form.

"Sure." He said pausing to think for a moment.

He stood and stuck out his hand for me to grab, I was again

treated to a look of his gorgeous body. I shook it off and

grabbed his hand. We walked down the make shift dock, he

immediately jumped in leaving me to question my sanity. I

never really liked water, well it wasn't the water it was the fish

in the water that I didn't like. I watch jeremy wade. He came up

from the water and swam the short distance back to the dock.


"Are you going to get in, it was your idea after all."


"I'm thinking about it."


"Dont tell me you're still afraid of fish?" He asked eyebrow



"No." I said lying easily hoping the quiver in my voice didn't

give me away.


A smile appeared on his gorgeous features and I knew I had

been found out.


"Jump in and I'll catch you, you can hold onto me and I'll

protect you from the mean ole fishes.


"Fine, but you better catch me."


I closed my eyes and jumped in the water. I didn't sink very far

Liam's arms instantly wrapped around me pulling me up from

under the water. I wrapped my arms around his neck not

daring to let go.


"I told you I'd catch you." He said his voice tickling my ear.


"That you did." I said smiling into his chest.


We swam around for awhile, enjoying the warm water on our

bodies. I mustered up enough courage to let go of Liam and

swim by myself. He had to talk me into it though. I lay on my

back floating in the water when a pair of arms pulled me



I gasped taking in a mouth full of water. I clawed my way back

to the surface and sputtered out the water and took in a deep

breath of air. I turned and saw Liam trying to hold back his


"You jerk!" I said splashing him with water.

I was making my way back to the dock when his arms wrapped

around my waist pulling me back in his muscled form.


"I'm sorry stay in and swim some more."


His breath was warm against my ear making me forget to be

angry anymore.

"F-fine but I'm not letting go of you."


"Wouldn't have it any other way." He said pulling me from the



I turned in his arms and wrapped my arms and legs around



" I like him." Zoe said deciding to make herself known again.


"Me too, I mean yeah he's really nice and a good friend."


" Nah you like him like him, and you should I feel safe when

I'm around him."


" Zoe I can't deal with that"


" Deal with what? That you like him, that you might have to

stay here, and handle your responsibilities."


" No I can't deal with the fact that he might not like me, like I'll

end up liking him. Atleast with James he knows what he's

getting into."


" What happened to not running away and facing your

problems head on?"


I didn't say anything and neither did she, I knew she was right

but I wasn't really prepared to handle anything new.


"Are you okay?" Liam suddenly aske wrapping his arms tighter

around me.


Worry laced his voice and I smiled a little.


" I'm fine why do you ask?"


"You suddenly tensed up. We can stop swimming if you want?"


"Oh sorry just got lost in thought. No lets keep going."




It was silent while we continued to swim until I stupidly

blurted out a dumb question.


" Are you seeing anyone? I mean well you know what I mean.

Nevermind you don't have to answer that, forget I said



I attempted to hide my face in his chest from embarrassment

but was instead met with a face full of water. Liams laugh rang

sweetly in my ears. He lifted my chin with my fingers, his eyes

holding me captivated.


"To answer your question, no I'm not seeing anyone. Not for a



"Why not, I would think girls would be fawning all over you."


"They do and it was nice for a while, but I'm interested in

finding my mate and sharing that love I see so many others



A dreamy look appeared on his face, sucking me in.


" You wanna know something?"

" I used to have the biggest crush on you when I was little."

"And now?"


" And know what?" I countered knowing fully what he was

talking about.

He gave me a knowing smile.

"We should probably head back it's getting late. And joycelyn

the feelings mutual."


We swam back to the dock and helped me out. We shited back

to our wolf form and headed back to the clearing where our

clothes were. After our clothes were back on we made our

way back to the house. I paused seeing and angry James

standing on the porch staring daggers at me.


"I'll leave you two to talk." Liam said giving my arm a squeeze.


James' gaze shifted to Liam as he walked past, I could fill the

tension from over here. After Liam went through the door

James was off the porch and standing in front of me.

"What was that?" He asked demanding an answer as if I were a

small child.


"Its not what you think."


"And what is it that I think jocelyn, please tell me since you can

all of a sudden read my mind."


"You need to calm down."


" No I won't calm down, I tell you I love you and you just go

off gallivanting with another man like a slut."


"You don't have any right to talk to me like that and I don't

have to stand here and listen to it." I said walking around him.


" No you don't just run away like you always do."


"Fine you want to do it this way we will. I don't love you not

like I used too anyway. I was tryong to think of the best way to

tell you but here you go again always trying to control

something. Well guess what I'm not someone you can control,

not anymore. You self-centered ass."


He stood there with his mouth agape opening and closing like

a fish. I needed to calm down something in me was about to

snap and it wasn't going to end well.


"Tell me does he know what happened to you all those years

ago, I don't think he does. And is he still going to want you

after he finds out your damaged goods."


I let out a strangled cry and went to shove him when a burst of

energy rolled off of me and sent him flying into a tree. The last

thing I remember is looking at my hands in fear before

everything faded to black.
