Chapter 1: Prologue
They are something no one really knows how they came about in the world.
No one even knows how many even exist in the world, having so many born to the world each year.
No one knows who are hybrids; a hybrid could be right next to you and you don't even know.
That's the funny thing; they are good at concealing themselves from the public, where they can live normal lives like the humans.
Hybrids don't start to show un-human like things until their 13th birthday. Until then they are just normal, well not quite. Once they turn 13 they start to grow animal-like instincts; then come in the ears, tails, and then the teeth. They do start off with human teeth and ears, but once they go through the change, they are no longer needed.
A lot of people adore hybrids, while others think they are a freak of nature or devil people.
This was the life of an 18 year old, Louis Tomlinson.
He lived his life like any normal kid would until everything changed a month after he turned 13.
"Lou honey, come here, let me give you a haircut." Lou nods and walks over to his mother.
His mother starts to cut, when she feels little nubs on the top of his head.
"Shit..." she mumbles, she thought it skips two generations in her family, I guess she was wrong.
"What's wrong mummy?"
"Louis, I need to tell you something don't get scared, alright."
"What's wrong?" She goes and kneels in front of Lou.
"Well, in my family, every so often one of our family members are part-cat. I was told that it happens every two generation, but I guess things change. And whenever the said child turns 13 he or she starts to develop changes. And Lou honey, you have just started to develop ears, next will be the tail, seeing how your teeth already sharpened. Do you understand?"
"Yes, mummy. Will people treat me differently?"
"Sadly, yes sweetie, but you will just have to wear a beanie. And when your tail comes in, you will have to wrap it around your waist. Am I understood?"
"Yes." Just like that, a door slams.
"Jay, Lou I'm home!" Lou's father is heard throughout the house, his feet slamming against the floor as his descends to the kitchen.
"Hello---what's going on in here?"
"Uhh, Lou could you go upstairs while we talk?" Lou nods and goes upstairs.
Hearing the shouts.
The screams from his mother.
The footsteps up the stairs, and his door slamming open.
"Come here you little freak!"
Lou stumbles off the bed, and slowly comes over to his father.
"Now, let me see those fucking ears of yours!" he pulls Louis up by his ears and slams him into the wall.
"Oww...Daddy please stop." Louis says through his tears, while his father holds him up by his ears.
"No, you little freak. I should of gave you up when your mother told me this when we first met. But, no that little bitch wanted to keep you. So now you little demon, I will make your life a living hell." He spat on Louis and let him down.
His father ran down the stairs and slammed the door shut.
His mother came running upstairs, and opened the door and looked down at the sobbing broken boy.
"Ohh, come here to mommy sweetie." He runs over, and runs her fingers over Lou's head, trying to soothe his hurt ears. Only making it worse, she lays him down and grabs ice and he soon falls asleep.
That's how he had to live for the past 5 years.
He doesn't even know who his father is anymore, always coming home drunk. Strolling up the stairs and giving Lou's daily beating. Then going to his room to pass out and do it all over again.
Louis tried countless times to end his life.
But he was stopped every single time.
By whom you may ask?
His best friend of 10 years: Harry.
He has always been there for him. Always asking him how his day was, always forcing him to show his bruises, yes Harry knows about what his father does to him, but not the why.
Louis has even resulted to self harming; Harry even checks that out too. Making sure he has stopped. He looks out for Louis like his own brother.
But, there has to be a reason why right?
Well, the thing is, Harry is completely and utterly in love with Louis; been ever since he could remember.
But, another thing, Louis is in love with Harry as well.
How will Harry feel when he finds out the only thing Louis has been keeping from him?
Will Harry still love him, or leave him when he needs him the most?
