"You'd take care of Eric, wont you kids?" mother asked.
"yes mother." Siam and I said in unison.
"Good." She said, "I'll have food be brought to you."
We all nodded and watched them leave. Yep, that's all the time mother needs to check on me. We were never that close anyway.
"I'll have to check on security." Siam says, "Father wants a full force security tonight, just in case. So I have to leave you with my sister, Eric. Would that be alright?"
"Of course, I wouldn't want to keep you from your responsibilities." Eric said.
"As i would love to get out from them." Siam joked. "Anyway, we should go-"
We all looked at the main door and saw Anna run up to me and threw her arms around me.
"Shit..." I heard Jake mumble under his breath.
"Anna! Where have you-"
"You have your brother and these two-" referring to Jake and Aaron, "to ask of my whereabouts." She glared at them.
"Me?" Siam asked, as questioned as I was.
"Seriously, leaving me there to wait and find out that you escaped." Anna snapped.
"What did you boys do?" I asked
"We told her to wait outside the gym when your brother called for us." Jake said.
"We knew that if we put you two together in a room after the attack you'd be all clingy and crying." Aaron added.
Anna hit him on the head, "You don't care if we cry or laugh our hearts out. I'll do what I want when I know my best friend is in trouble."
I smiled, "I'm fine now Anna, don't worry."
"I know." she sighed, "Everyone knows what Eric did."
"Everyone?" I asked glancing at Siam who didn't meet my eyes.
"Like I said we need to go." He said, he walked up to me and gave me a kiss on the forehead, "We'll see you later, little sister."
"Stay safe." I said.
"We will." He says as he leaves.
"Don't tire Eric so much," Liam says giving me the same brotherly kiss, "and stay out of trouble."
"We will," I assured him."
The moment they left Anna and I finally relaxed.
"So, what happened?" Anna asked.
"Just a hunter attack." I said.
"How many were there?"
"Just one and you needed five full grown wolves with you?" she eyed Eric who shrugged.
"You don't understand Anna, this hunter, he was...." I paused, thinking. For lack of better words I said, "-different."
"It was almost like he wasn't human." I said.
"I sensed and smelled wolf on him." Eric said, "And a wolf's scent is never that strong on a human even how long a human stays near at a wolf, it would never get its signature scent like that."
"So he's a shifter?"
"No, he couldn't have been" I said, shaking my head, then i sighed. "I wish I have something to hold that is his. Then I would be able to see."
Then i heard another hiss escape from Eric, and saw him grab his wound.
"We should get you cleaned up Eric, you look like a mess." Anna said.
Eric managed to chuckle at her, "That's the thanks I get for saving your best friend?" he teased.
Anna laughed, "Well, you living is enough, isn't it ?" she teased again and they both laughed.
Then i remembered the mist, the wolf that Siam had freed and gave Eric. I stared at Eric and finally, she appeared.
You need answers...
Will you give them to me?
Only if you ask the right questions.
With that she disappeared again.
"What is it?" Anna asked, shaking me out of my mind.
"I think i know how to get answers." I said.
"You sure this is safe?" Anna asked. "I mean, Eric is wounded you know."
"You wont feel anything." I assured him, "I'll be doing all the work."
"Ah, the words that a boy longs' to hear form a girl."
I rolled my eyes and hit him on the arm making Anna giggle and Eric laugh while I blushed.
"Don't you want to know what's going on or what?" I snapped.
"Ok, ok, grouch much." Anna said and sat beside me and took my hand.
"You know the rule, squeeze my hand if you need me." I nodded.
Then I turned to Eric. "This wont hurt, I promise."
He smiled, "I trust you cherry blossom, do what you have to do."
I smiled and gave a weak nod. Eric lied down and I took his hand as well.
And as if on cue, the misty wolf appeared.
You waste no time. She teased.
I smiled, "I need to know what I am dealing with. Why you were trapped in that human's body."
She gave a weak nod, and soon we again were engulfed by a great wind, longer than the one earlier. I closed my eyes for a second to avoid getting anything in them.
But then next second I opened my eyes I was no longer in Eric's room. I was in the forest, one I wasn't familiar with.
where do you think they are?
Who do you think is speaking at the end?
Q: what state are you readers from?
me i'm from South Dakota. The black hills are beautiful and just to put your thoughts to rest we have electricity and internet if you haven't noticed. It's not all dead and brown here, the trees and plains are very well alive and striving in the many shades of green:)
