Whispers of the Wolves

Two sets of four life long friends grow up in a seemingly normal life, until one day, things catch fire without a match, things move without being picked up, they can hear things miles away, and they see things that are never meant to be seen. Then one day a mysterious stranger comes telling them that they are destine to save the world that they grew up in, and the world that they belong to; one where the animals talk, mountians get up and move, and magic is everywhere. Given a quest to find the hidden Shifters, they go on a quest of a lifetime, learning more about themselves and the meaning of family as they battle dark demons, old wizards and witches gone bad, and their own mental challenges and friend ship challenges too.

8. Chapter 4 - Midnight Talking

"Just because you fail once, doesn't mean doesn't mean you're going to fail at everything.  Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always, believe in yourself, becuase if you don't, then 

Who will?"  - Merilyn Monroe

 

Kara

     The end of the day finally arrived, and Hannah was exhausted, both physically and emotionally.  Hazel had never showed up for the second half of the day, and the only reason she knew that Hazel was okay, was because she got a text saying that her parents were fighting again and that she would get back to her as soon as she could.  It had been three hours, and Hazel hadn't text her about how it was going, so she was getting worried.  Finally, she got the courage up to text her again.

Kara: Are you okay?

     Five minutes later, Hazel replied.

Hazel: Yeah.

Kara: Can you meet me by the river tonight?  I have to ask you something.

Hazel: No.  Not tonight.  I'm busy

Kara:  Doing what?

Hazel:  Just trust me please.

Hazel:  I can meet you at the river at midnight.  Only then, I can't get out of my house until them.

Kara:  Alright.

     Still loaded with homework from that day, Kara headed up to her room, well more like stumbled with all the weight of her backpack.  Before she got to her room however, she stopped by her parents room.  Her mom was laying on the bed reading, while her dad worked on his computer.

     "Mom?  Dad?"  Both of them looked up from what they were doing.

     "Yeah, Kara?"

     "Hazel left early today during school, she said that her parents had a fight.  She won't tell me if they did anything, but she said that she could meet me tonight at the bridge to talk...at midnight."  Getting the sense of what their daughter was asking, her dad firmly replied.

     "No.  Absolutely not."

     "But dad!  I know what you were planning to do to her, and her parents!  You shouldn't have kept that from me.  Anyway, I want to talk her into it, not out of it.  Please let me go!"  Both of her parents exchanged a look, that Kara interpreted as a good sign.  They both sighed.

     "Fine.  You may go, but you have to be home by 1, and try to convince Hazel to come to our house and spend the night."  

     "EEEEKKKKK!!! Thank you so much!"  Kara ran over and hugged her parents as she squealed in appreciation.

     "You have to get your homework done first young lady.  If I see any drop in your grades because you aren't getting enough sleep, this will not happen again.  Do you understand me?"  Kara nodded and bounded out of her parents room, rushing to get her homework done.

*********************************

     It was midnight, and the breeze swept across the sidewalk like a broom across the floor.  Kara sat beside the river waiting for Hazel to show.  Thinking back, she didn't recall a time where she'd heard about Hazel's whole past.  Yeah, there were snippets of it here and there, but it wasn't really the same as a full blown know-your-past-quite-well sort of thing.  It had seemed as though Hazel was hiding something from her and Baldwin.  As if there was something that she wasn't quite telling them.  A flashback to when she was talking about what had happen that morning arose, and she remembered the look of realization that had occurred in Hazel's face.

     "Kara."  Hazel stepped out of the shadows startling her.

     "Oh!  Hazel!  You scared me!  You're always so quiet."  Giving a faint laugh, Hazel walked up to her and sat next to her.  

    "Before you say anything, Kara, I know what you were going to talk to me about."  Surprised, Kara looked at Hazel with a shocked look.

    "Yeah, I heard you both talking about it before I left.  You're going to try and convince me to get the police and get me out of my parents custody.  You want to convince me that it's not safe, and that I would be better off in the custody of your parents, or Baldwins.  It's not going to happen.  You know that I still love them, and if I leave, my mom will get hurt for it.  My dad is the one that needs to be taken away, not my mom, but without my dad, my mom would be broken.  Kara, you should've seen him when I came home."  Hazel shuddered at the memory, or maybe it was because of the cool breeze that kept sweeping through, but Kara knew one thing for sure, this was not the way to convince Hazel.

     "Please, if it means anything to you that I don't get hurt, then let this happen.  Please."

     "I cannot, Kara.  You are my best friend and you've helped me so much, but I cannot and will not vouch for any of that to be true.  I'm sorry."  Kara sighed.

     "Very well.  I have to get home.  It's 12:45 p.m. and I have to be home by 1."  Getting up, Hazel pulled Kara up as well.

     "I will walk you home.  Maybe while we walk you can ask the actual question you've been dying to know the answer to."

     "Hazel, when I was talking today about what happen with the milk.  You didn't seem to be weirded out, you seemed like you knew exactly what I was talking about.  Like it was normal.  I mean I'm still freaked out by it.  I don't understand what happen.  Please, if you know anything will you tell me?"  Hazel ran a hand through her hair.

     "I don't know anything about it.  It just seemed like the same thing that Blythehad said to me before.  I would stay alert Kara.  Don't let other things fool you.  Even if they seem impossible, just remember, anything is possible if you just believe."  They arrived at her house at that time, and Hazel jogged away from her just as she was about to invite her to stay the night.  'anything is possible if you just believe'  those words rung in her head as she walked into her house.  Going upstairs to change, she lay in bed and repeated.  Those words ran through her head until she fell asleep.

Even if things seem impossible, just remember, anything is possible if you just believe.
