"Eric!" he shouted, "he gave the command."
I stared at him, I felt the color from my face drain, the same moment there was a crash behind him.
Eric and the hunter seemed to need more space to fight and had moved it outside into the classroom, which was ransacked within seconds.
Eric gave another growl at Liam, who grabbed me by the arm, "Let's go."
"No, Eric!" I called out to him.
I'll see you at home cherry blossom. I heard his voice in my head.
I shook my head as Liam practically dragged me across the room. "No...no..."
"Serenity please." Now I can head a long bell outside the halls, fire alarm. I stared as Eric fought with the hunter, they were equally strong and fast Which is not possible for the hunter, he is human.
Then, I saw it, a mist around him, a mist forming a wolf.
"NO!" I screamed again, "Stop this now!"
Liam in an instant stopped and so did Eric and the Hunter and they turned to me.
The Hunter smirked. "The goddess' words are law."
Eric snarled at him louder, let me go Serenity. He commanded.
"No!" I shook my head, my face was all numbed from the crying and shouting.
"No, you will stop this."
"I will help you there princess." The Hunter raised his dagger but to his surprise he couldn't move. "What the-"
"Give up." I said walking up to him. "Set her free."
"Serenity-" I heard Liam call and followed me.
"Stay there Liam." I said, then gave my full attention on the hunter again. Controlling the soul of the wolf he had with him. "Let her go, now."
The Hunter then smirked, "You see her, or should I say, you see yourself?"
I frowned. "What do you want?"
"I told you what I want." He sneered, "It's just the issue of how to get it without killing you again."
Eric then stepped between us.
Not while I breathe, cursed one.
"You cannot harm me, Alpha Not when your princess tells you not to."
Then I'll be there one to kill you.
And form behind me Siam lunged and slashed the hunter's throat and torso. I closed my eyes, but I couldn't close my hearing to the sound of tearing flesh and cracking bones. I felt a fur wrap around me, enclosing me with calm and safety.
When everything was quiet, I looked around and saw I was already on the floor, snuggled on Eric's wolf.
I looked around and Siam stepped up at me, the mist was now on him, surrounding him. Then it stopped and faced me, "You have saved me sister... this man had freed me, and his clean heart, I am happy to serve him."
Serve him? I thought
"Serenity..." I turned and looked at Liam who wasn't staring at me, but over me. So were Jake and Aaron who were hovering behind Liam.
I followed their eyes and saw Eric's wolf covered with blood. My eyes widened and reached for his neck and ran my hand through his fur, I felt his heavy breathing and panting.
"Eric..." I called for him, his neck and ran my hand through his fur, I felt his heavy breathing and panting.
"Eric, I'm so sorry..." I whispered and his my face in his neck underneath his ears, to make sure that he can hear me.
Don't be silly, Serenity, I promised to keep you safe didn't I?
You can't go... I thought, you can't leave me...
So you can also feel it? There was amusement in his voice. I thought I was going crazy.
You're my mate Serenity. He said, The pull, the want to see you, the pain of seeing you sad, the need to protect you... they were signs. You're my mate.
I stared at him in realization.
The moments I knew I should have been made at him. Times that I would have stormed off and yelled and kicked if it were other boys, but Eric was different. I let him through my defenses, he himself stepped up to my brother and best friend.
I should have seen it then. The sign's he spoke.
He is my mate.
"Eric..." I sobbed.
"Serenity, we need to get him out of here." I hear Siam."
I looked up at him and saw the wolf hovering over him....
