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.


14. Chapter Fourteen

It's July 20th. I've been in Tennessee for just over two months. I haven't seen or talked to Kylie, Kian, Jake, Clara or Jus since that a month ago. The full moon is tomorrow and I'm not stressing. My nights are normal and I stopped wearing the necklace. It's back in it's box along with the letter. I've spent the last month shopping, swimming and getting back into the forest. When I lived in California I spent most of my time in the forest. Here I spend my time with Bear, Benedict Cumberbatch, Matt Smith and David Tennant. 


Bear is asleep on my bed. I'm curled up in a ball with my Sherlock blanket next to him. As I watch David Tennant and Catherine Tate wave goodbye to fat, he wakes up and ask to go pee. I place my laptop to the side of my bed and slip my purple boot slippers on. 

"Come on buddy." We leave my room to where my mum is reading on the couch. "Hey mom. Mockingjay?" She has tears in her eyes.

"yep." She whispers and puts the blue book down. "Does Bear need to pee?" Her normal voice returns. 

"Yea. I'm letting him out then going to bed." She gets off the couch.

"I'm done too. I'll finish in my bed. Night Kaila, night Bear." She picks up Mockingjay and goes to her room. I look down. Bear is tapping my foot.

"Sorry buddy." I open the sliding door and let Bear out. The pool is past the barbecue to the right. The grass for Bear and the fireplace are left past the table. "Bear, come back in." I call the dog. When he doesn't come I step outside to see Kylie behind the enclosed fireplace holding Bear. "Kylie."


"Put my dog down and leave." I offer no emotion in my voice

"Come with me Kaila, your going to Change tonight. We can help you." She still holds Bear

"I'm not coming Kylie." 

"Please Kaila, please come." She begs.

"No, give my dog back." Bear wiggles in her arms.

"There was a girl like you. She refused to come with the pack. When she Changed she scared the shit out of her adopted parents. They gave her up the minute she turned. Do you know what her name is?" She looks at me and cocks her head. "Her name is Kylie. And she has a younger half brother named Kian. She's been with the pack since she was twenty, her brother since he was nineteen. This was two hundred years ago, Kaila. I've been alive two hundred years."

"Give my dog back and leave, Kylie" I say it between clenched teeth. She places him on the ground. 

"Clara is Changing tonight. So is Kian and his girlfriend Adrianna. Jake and I are Changing too. When you Change we'll be here Kaila. I promise." She turns and does an impossible jump over our fence. I hear her run toward 'The Heart of the Forest' before picking Bear up and going back inside.
