"Amy! Amy, calm down! It's alright. You're safe, I won't let anyone hurt you." Jordan placed his hand on the side of my face. I growled in warning.
"Amy? Are you ok?", Jordan asked. I shook my head at him.
"Step away from her, Jordan." A large hand landed on Jordan's shoulder.
Jordan hesitated, "Yes, Alex."
A huge man with bright green eyes stood over me. He couldn't have been over twenty-one by the looks of him, but power radiated off him like heat waves off the pavement. I stood a little taller, showing him that I wasn't to be intimidated.
"Well, well, well. It seems we have a new alpha among us. It's nice to meet you, my lady." He bowed and left the room.
I looked to Jordan. He seemed confused too. At least I wasn't the only one.
Everyone bowed as they left the room. Someone grabbed Jordan's shoulder and made him leave too. After a few minutes alone, another guy came in and motioned for me to follow him.
We walked through the beautiful house until we were outside. I was led over to a group of people standing in the now falling snow. A man with dark hair and blue eyes smiled at me. He held hands with a pretty dark haired woman. Three others stood there, including Alex.
"Hello. Alex told me we had an alpha female in the pack. It's an honor to meet you. I'm Greg, the packs current alpha male," He looked to the woman beside him," this is the packs current alpha female and my mate, Kim." She nodded at me.
"I'm their oldest son, Tom.", said a tall boy with black hair, "This is my little brother Derek." He gestured to a boy with white hair and red eyes.
"Tom is going to show you around.", Greg told me before looking back at his son. "Make sure you're not late for dinner." Greg patted his back and left with his wife and son.
I turned back to Tom and saw a big grey wolf in front of me. What color was my fur?
It's a really dark grey. Almost black. Tom's voice answered.
Thanks. I said.
Ready to go?
Tom walked me around for a few hours showing me where this was and where I could find that. After awhile I stopped listening and looked for Jordan. When I couldn't find him, I turned back to Tom.
When we got to the porch a lady was standing at the door, waiting for me.
"This way, my lady." I looked to Tom who shrugged and headed around the house.
"Alright, my lady. Lets get you ready for dinner. First you'll need to change out of you fur, of course."
I just looked at her, because I had no idea how to do that.
"Oh, I forgot. Don't worry! It's easy! Just focus on the human part of you." I blinked at her. She sighed. "Think about it like this. Animal thoughts make you a wolf, human thoughts make you human, so think human."
I focused on what I was going to tell my family and suddenly I was naked on two feet.
"Here." She threw me a pair of jeans and a shirt, which was a little big.
"My name's Lynn, in case you were wondering, my lady."
"Thank you, Lynn."
"You're welcome, my lady."
I went inside and headed to the dining area. Jordan waved me over to where he sat.
"Alpha huh?", he said.
"I guess. To be honest, I'm not really sure what that means.", I told him.
We sat in silence through dinner. When we finished I headed for the door, knowing Jordan would follow. I gasped in fresh air, finally able to cry with no one around,but my best friend. My knees hit the mud and I put my head in my hands. I felt my weight leave the ground as Jordan lifted me up. He took my to his Jeep and drove me to my house. Now's the hard part.
"Pull it together, Amy." I stopped sobbing.
"Amy?", Jordan whispered.
"You can't tell them."
"I know. Tom told me."
"Jordan, what comes next? What do I do now?"
"Trust me. Just trust me. This will get easier, but not overnight. If you ever need anything come find me," He paused. ", and Amy? If this gets to be to much, tell me and...we'll go."
"Anywhere. This won't be made into a bad thing by the Silverwood pack. If it doesn't work out here we can find some place new, or even start our own pack somewhere. There are always wolves looking for a fresh start."
"Of course." I smiled at him. I'm glad I had Jordan to get through this.
I jumped out of the Jeep and headed inside, completely unprepared for what comes now.
