Supernatural Assassins

Three supernatural girls are using their strengths to survive in a dangerous world. With their world about to be sent into war, these girls are going to do whatever it takes to survive.


3. Macayla's Secret



"Hey, you look beautiful." Erik said when he opened the door, automatically leaning down to kiss me. My heart fluttered as his lips touched mine and I could feel myself begin to blush. "You don't look half bad yourself." I said and it was true. A plain black v-neck and jeans never looked better on anyone else. To me, he looked like Clark Kent with his jet black hair and stunning blue eyes. I always got made fun of for being shallow and going after gorgeous airheads, but Erik was different. He was the whole package gorgeous, intelligent, and kind. We met while I was at the local library. Erik went to college and he was home for the holidays. The attraction was immediate and undeniable. He made me feel all sorts of crazy butterflies that I had never felt before. I knew that it was a dangerous situation, but I couldn't keep away. 

The only real danger was if the wrong person stumbled on our relationship. Most of the supernatural don't care about human/supernatural relationships, but some of the elders and some from the Dark were severely against it. It is not unusual for the relationships to end in death, but it's not a huge problem out here. Chloe, Rain, and I were the only supernatural creatures within at least 100 miles. I still hadn't told them about it, they weren't as open to human relationships as I was. 

Erik stepped outside and closed the door behind him, smiling at me while he did it. "God I'm so happy to see you. I have been going crazy these past 5 months not actually getting to see you." He said, grabbing the back of my neck. He kissed me more deeply this time. I felt my body relax and I leaned in, kissing him back just as passionately. He went back to school for the rest of the year after we started dating. I hadn't seen him since then, we had only spoken on the phone.  It was a terrible form of torture, but this moment, it was worth the wait.


I didn't even feel or notice anything. One second I was kissing Erik and the next second I was looking up at the stars. It took me a second to figure out where I was. I rolled over and was relieved to find Erik lying on the ground next to me, unconscious, but looking unharmed. We were in the woods and as far as I could see there was no one or nothing around us. My heart was pounding out of my chest and I didn't know what to expect. I was seriously hoping that this wasn't the worst case scenario. Worst case scenario, a group of Darks had found out where I was and they were going to try to use me in a hostage situation against my mom or just outright kill me. I didn't have any mind powers, but Rain and Chloe should be able to hear my thoughts if I directed them their way. As I scanned the woods, I mentally called for both of them.

"Yes?" Came the reply from about 10 feet behind me. Startled, I spun around and tripped on a branch in my haste, falling down. Much to my surprise, Chloe was casually leaning up against a tree and Rain was lounging on a lower branch. My mind was racing too quickly, trying to comprehend what was going on. "What is going on?" I finally asked. Obviously nothing serious was going on because they both looked too relaxed.

"Oh, are you confused as to why you were kissing a boy and then all of a sudden you were unconscious?" Chloe asked casually. I love her, but Chloe is awful when she gets in a mood. She has these cruel, playful moods where she just looks for someone to torment. Right now, she was looking at me like I was prey and I didn't like it. We were supposed to be family.

"I would love to find out what's going on." I said calmly, staring at Chloe. She laughed and threw her hair back, looking like the bitch she was being. "Well you can imagine how we felt when we found out you had a secret boyfriend. You know, I really thought we were closer than that, family even. Yet here you are being sneaky and lying to us. Do you want to tell us how long this has been going on?" Before I could answer, Erik finally returned to the land of the living. He popped up of the ground like a mummy and looked around frantically. His eyes locked on mine. "Macayla, are you ok?" He asked immediately. "I'm fine. We're fine." I assured him. 

"Are you though?" Chloe asked, bringing our attention back to her. "What kind of question is that? What are you going to do hurt us?" I asked Chloe, not really believing that she was making me ask her that question. "Oh you're fine Macayla. We would never hurt you. On the other hand, he's going to die." Chloe said casually, as if she was talking about going for a walk or eating dinner. Rain looked at her. "Come on Chloe." She reprimanded quietly, but I could see it was no use. Chloe's eyes were blazing with hunger and she looked downright predatory. 

I got up and positioned myself so that I was standing in between Chloe and Erik. "Chloe, what the hell are you talking about? We're not killers." I reminded her, but my heart was starting to run faster and adrenaline was coursing through me. I knew Chloe wouldn't hurt me, but I didn't know if she was serious about hurting Erik or not. I really couldn't tell. 

Chloe pushed off the tree and started walking towards me, slowly. I was starting to get really mad. She was making me uncomfortable and honestly coming off as really threatening. "No Macayla, you're not a killer. I'm a killer. Rain is a killer. You seem to forget that we aren't humans and we can do whatever the fuck we want. We need to do whatever we have to to survive." She pointed at Erik. "That human, your little toy, is going to be a weakness we just can't afford. We're about to enter a war you so vehemently encouraged us to join, and after that we're going to have huge targets on our backs. Some little human, running around, knowing about us, is going to be a problem. It's a risk we can't afford."

As she was walking forward, I was stepping back, pushing Erik back with me. I could see the logic behind Chloe's words and I knew she was trying to do what she thought was best. "Chloe, murder is not the answer. Please don't kill him. I love him." Even when I said that, nothing in Chloe's face changed, she was giving me the same predatory look. "Rain, please don't do this." I changed tactics, changing my focus to Rain. She had a little more of a heart than Chloe. 

"You know I don't like killing, but Chloe is right. We're about to be in enough danger as is, leaving a lose end is just going to be something that's going to come around and cause problems. Even if we make him forget about you, someone could come and make him remember. We have to do this." I looked at Rain, she was still sitting. At least she had the decency to look grim and sad. I felt a tear hit my cheek. I couldn't handle this. I really thought I loved Erik and I did not want to lose him. Every human life lost was a tragedy and a waste, but he was my human. He was the person I thought I would spend future years together. He was so young and full of life. 

"Look, I'm not going to tell anyone about you guys." Erik finally spoke up. "I love Macayla and I won't talk for any reason." His voice was a little tense, but I was proud of how strong he sounded. I wanted to turn and look at him, but with Chloe looking at us like food, I couldn't pull my attention from her. Chloe looked back at Rain. 

"You owe me $100." She said and turned back to me. "You told him about us. How could you? You've betrayed your own kind, for what? Some human? There's millions of them." I opened my mouth to make my speech about how Erik was a good guy and how he deserved to live, etc, but I made one mistake. I was watching Chloe, but I wasn't watching Rain.

I didn't have super speed or anything, so I didn't see Rain move, next think I knew, I was being held by Rain. Rain had my arms wrapped around behind me and Chloe was in front of me, holding Erik. Her fangs were out and her eyes were their unnatural green they got when she was hunting and feeding. I looked at Erik and started to cry in earnest now. Erik just smiled at me. "Don't worry Macayla. These months with you were worth anything. You were the only woman I ever felt anything real for." I sobbed and struggled, but it was no use against Rain's strength.

Chloe snapped Erik's neck suddenly and the crack was the worst sound I have ever heard in my life. Chloe pushed him and when his body fell to the ground, I collapsed too. I felt myself go numb and all I could see was Erik's lifeless body on the ground in front of me. I barely paid attention to the fact that Rain had let go of me. I could barely hear her angry voice saying, "You weren't supposed to actually kill him! We were just going to scare him so he wouldn't talk. What the hell Chloe?! That was totally unnecessary and uncalled for." All I could focus on was the dark back of Erik's head. I kept expecting him to stand up and say he was fine, giving me his dazzling smile. "Look, sorry I lied to you, but he needed to die! I know she cared about him, but she will get over him. I doubt they've known each other long. She'll find a nice new guy..."

Things were getting fuzzier and fuzzier for me. The edges of my vision were blurring out and sounds were starting to sound like I was going underwater until I stopped hearing at all. All I could hear was ringing, all I could see was Erik, and then all my emotions started to bubble. I felt the reality of the situation start to crash down on me like a tsunami wave. Today had been too emotional, too awful and life changing. I had too many emotions going through me. I didn't even know what I was feeling, I just knew that I was losing it. It was building and building and building until finally, everything came out. I exploded.
