Midnight Run

One month after her 17th birthday, Kaila Woods meets a girl named Kylie in the forest behind her house. Kylie brings her to The Heart of the Forest where she meet more people, all claiming to be werewolves. They tell Kaila she's one too. They say her Change will happen on the next full moon. But Kaila doesn't believe them.


5. Chapter Five

Halfway through my shower I hear my mum return. Ten minutes later, I shut the water off, squeeze the water out of my hair and grab the blue towel from the rack. I dry myself off then throw on the shorts and t-shirt I grabbed from my room. My wet hair drips down my back to the kitchen where my mom is putting away the last of the groceries. Bear finishes eating when I come in and bounces over to say hello. He sits by my left foot and looks up at me. I grab him a treat out of the bag on the counter and toss it to my right. He runs to grab it before I can get it. A minute later he brings it back, goes to my left foot and lays down to chew it. Mom turns to face me after she's done putting the milk in the fridge.

"Morning Kaila, I didn't want to wake you when I left so I left a note. Can you please blow dry your hair?" 

"Yea, sorry mum. I just showered." 

"I can see that. I  went to McDonalds and got chicken burgers for when you're dry." Mum shoos me away and starts pulling out our burgers from the bag. 

My hot pink blow dryer ended up on the bottom of my suitcase with my hot pink straightener and my hot pink curling iron. I might have a small obsession with hot pink hair items. I take all them back to my bathroom, plug in my blow dryer and dry my hair. As it dries it slowly turns red. My hair is the weirdest color. Its dark brown when it's wet and it's brown with dark red highlights but in the sunlight it's bright red, like Amy Pond red. 

When it's fully dry, I leave my hot pink stuff in my bathroom and walk back to the kitchen where my mum at the counter with her phone in her hands. I stand about two feet away from her and somehow I can clearly see her texts. It's Allison, her best friend in Cali. 

"Let's eat mom." I pick up a couple fries, give one to Bear and eat the rest.
