"Retreat Kinder! Lassen Sie mich sprechen!" I heard someone scream in my ear. I looked through the thought, and picked the source. Marshall, the leader of the horrible Russian creation called werewolves. Soon, I heard him actually scream it, and the hundreds of wolves that we were fighting fled the hall. That left only the seven of us. His giant wolf build slowly changed to a human body, walking towards us. Shifting back into a human, Andy stood in front of me to protect me from Marshall’s potential threat.
Lili walked up to him, clearing her head so I couldn't read it. "Meister, warum verschwenden Sie Ihre Zeit mit ihnen zu sprechen, wenn man nur könnte reißen sie auseinander?" Lili said, curling her hands into fists. None of us could speak German, so it was like a slap to the face when Lili broke out speaking it fluently.
"Mach dir keine Sorgen, ich bin Tarifverhandlungen mit ihnen. Ich möchte den einen nennen sie Jeremy." Marshall said, and Lili stepped out of the way, sighing. Marshall smirked at the sight of me. I felt my stomach knot up and my face go colourless.
"Hello, Christian. I'm not here to attack. I just want to talk with you." Marshall said, still smirking. Something about him talking to me directly, in English, made my heart pound.
"What do you want, Marshall?" I asked, holding Andy to me. He was angry and I wasn't going to let him make the first hit. I'm not attacking until he attacks. Marshall looked around, changing his smile to a frown.
"Hol mir den Vampir, Kind" Marshall said, and Lili took off running. I eyed her suspiciously, but faced Marshall again. It was getting harder and harder for me to breathe.
"Let's make a deal. Give me Jeremy and I'll supply you with mutations to kill the vampires." Marshall said, pulling a red mutation from his pocket. I shook my head violently. We currently hate the Daywalkers, but we have a mutual agreement to not attack each other. Besides, we can find mutations just about anywhere.
"Are you fucking crazy? We aren't giving up Jinxx for mutations!" Jake yelled, and luckily Ashley held him back from attacking Marshall. Digging through Jake’s mind, I was smiling at how much he really cared for Jinxx. They’ve always been a little more than friends, but neither of them have quite realized their feelings for each other.
Lili came bursting in, dragging Jinxx behind her. She brought him to a smiling Marshall. He held Jinxx’s face in one hand and felt along his mouth with the other.
"Ah, perfekt. Ausgezeichnete Arbeit, meine Lili." Marshall purred, continuing to feel Jinxx up. Obviously uncomfortable, Jinxx started struggling to break free from Marshall’s iron grip. Unfortunately, wolves are much stronger than humans.
"Let me go, asshole!" Jinxx yelled, finally breaking free. He nearly tripped over his own feet trying to get over to Jake. As they hugged, I got curious about what Jinxx was thinking. I wanted to know if they shared mutual feeling for each other.
But what I found was not a loving thought for Jake, but instead our greatest nightmare.
