3. chapter 3
That night the three of us sat at the table talking about our grades. I just listened as I picked at my food. My hands shaking afraid that he might suddenly snap like he's done many times before.
"How about chemistry" He asks Isaac when he notices he left it out.
"It's only half way through the semester I still have time to make it up" Isaac says his voice shaking.
"Just tell me the grade" He dad says.
"Dad I ....." Isaac says but he interrupts him.
"Do you want to take this conversation downstairs" He says giving Isaac a warning look.
He shakes his head before looking at me in worry.
"It's a D" Isaac says looking own.
I wait for him to jump up but he doesn't which surprises me.
"Okay" He says simply taking another bite of his food.
"Really" Isaac says just as surprised as he is.
"Yeah" he says.
"I will have to punish you though you know" he says and I can see Isaac start to shake.
"Let's start by having you clean up the kitchen okay" He says and Isaac nods calming down a little.
"Cause I would really like to see this place spotless" He says before throwing his glass to the side letting it shatter on the floor.
Seconds later he moves to stand up slamming his hands on the table and some plates to crash to the floor. I let out a scream and look to Isaac who jumps up also. I watch as his dad throws a plate at Isaac and it shatters beside him. Isaac cowers against the wall and I run to him. He slowly stands up and looks surprisingly pissed.
"You could have blinded me" Isaac says to him.
I stare in shock as he removes glass from his face.
"Man up its just a scra....." He says but trails off I look to see what he was staring at and gasp as Isaac's face slowly starts to heal.
Isaac reaches his hand up and touches his face looking as surprised as we are. Suddenly he turns and runs out of the house his dad yelling after him. I quickly chased after him not knowing where he was going. It was raining so hard I could barely see. I chased him to a alley and was about to yell his name but stopped as I got a better look at him.
His eyes started to glow and hair started to form on his cheeks. His fingernails grew into claws as he opened his mouth teeth now canine as he let out a scream but it wasn't a scream it was a howl.
I fall to my knees as I stare after him as he ran away. He wasn't human. He was ..... A werewolf.
I shake from the cold and start to walk back toward home not sure what to say to him or how I should feel about it. How is this possible. This stuff just doesn't exist.
I know what I saw though. It was real.
When I got back I see that his dad is still gone looking for us and just walked inside. I change out of my wet clothes and into dry ones before climbing into bed. I close my eyes hoping that it's all just a dream and that I will wake up and Isaac will be safe here with me.
