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.


13. Chapter Thirteen

Kylie and I are leaving the wolf room. Werewolf facts bounce around in my head and I try to clear it. Jus explained that werewolves don't have to change at the full moon but most do. They have to change at least three times a year. 

"Is he really three thousand years old?" I ask her

"Yeah, it takes a minute to grasp the concept." She laughs and takes me south through the field of flowers and into the forest. 

"So, you guys hang out here every full moon? And how's being two hundred treating you?" Kylie leads me to a set of rocks that look like a fist. She sits down between the knuckles. 

"When you choose to be immortal, eventually you'll be two hundred." A girl drops down from the tree right beside me. 

"AHH, OH MY GOD!" I freak out for a sec until Kylie calms me. "Who are you?" The girl has red hair the goes to her waist. She wears shorts and a red and silver top. Her shoes are red converse. She has a gold necklace with a pearl. 

"My name is Clara. I'm Kylie's bestie." She hugs Kylie " So, your the newbie, huh?"

"Yeah, I'm Kaila."

"Cute name. Have you Changed yet?" She sits beside Kylie.

"Change? Do I get new clothes or something." I sit in the other side of Kylie. 

"Something." Kylie replies. "Your Change happens a month after you've been accepted into the pack. You'll Change in July."

"Okay, great but what's a change?" Clara looks at Kylie. 

"Lot's of questions from you newbie. The Change is when you turn into a wolf. For your first year you Change every month. Then once every two months for your second year and in your third year every three months until you run out of years. Eventually, you only have three Changes every year, in months you choose. You can always Change more if you want but the first year is the worst year." Clara takes a breath. "Have fun!" She stands and run off into the woods. 

"So, that's your bestie, huh?" I turned to Kylie

"Yep, she's a handful." Kylie laughs. "This my spot to chill. When Clara showed up about a hundred years ago, we become friends after she claimed that tree." Kylie points to the tree Clara jumped out of. 

"Why does everyone have a gold bracelet or necklace with a stone on it?" 

"It's their birthstone. Everyone gets theres after their first Change. I don't know how you have one unless you've already Changed." She looks at me with suspicion in her eyes. "Have you Changed?" She asks in a low voice. 

"I don't even believe in this, how could I have Changed already?" I'm angry now. "I came here because my father left me a letter. I don't believe in werewolves and all this. My father hasn't been with my mom since I was eight. That was nine years ago Kylie. Nine years with my mom because my father left." I stand up. "Bye Kylie." I walk out of her little clearing and back into the meadow. 'No way I could be a werewolf.' I think as I walk towards to opening that leads out into the forest. 

The walk back home is long and annoying. All I think about is how Jus's voice pulled me in, wanted me to believe and I did for a fraction of a second. I broke our connection and he looked puzzled. Werewolves don't exist, I tell myself. But theres one tiny part in my mind that is urging me to go back and talk to them figure out the truth and get help so I can Change. I ignore that part of my brain.
