Shift in Reality

Carrie Kiss is the new girl in a perfectly normal town or so it seems. Living beside the woods has been the ideal scenery for starting anew. That is until she gets an unexpected guest. Because Carrie has a secret. One that has her running away from everything she once knew and believed.

Liam Kimber is the resident badass. Somewhat of a loner, no one dares to cross him at least if they value their life. Apart from being the son of an Alpha, he is the strongest and most brutal werewolf of them all.

What happens when these two people, both attempting to escape their destiny, cross paths? Let's just say, sparks will fly.


1. Prologue

Never ever had she felt this happy and excited about anything before. Her parents were even here for a change and she thought the day couldn't get any better. She let out a loud scream of sheer pleasure with all abandonment, as the swing carried her into the sky.

This had to be the best birthday ever. Just like the pictures in the books, the park was everything she had imagined and wished for.

"Xiva, can I go higher than this please?" She called out to her older brother. She idolised him and everything he did. Especially because he had made sure their parents would allow her to come to the park and play as a fifth birthday present.

Xiva let out a heavy sigh while shaking his head 'no' at his little sister, his heart heavy.

"It is not fun anymore!" Vali retorted in the sassy way only a five-year-old could pull before she proceeded to let go of the swing.

She giggled in excitement, loving the rush of being tossed into the air with nothing to restrain her little body. She wasn't the slightest bit worried about herself because she knew as long as Xiva was around nothing could ever happen to her.

Just like she expected, she landed safely in Xiva's arms. He had caught her, even though he had been far off on the bench. Vali noticed her brother had been having a heated discussion with her parents and her nanny, Roni, but thought nothing of it.

"Vali you cannot pull stunts like that anymore." Xiva scolded his sister, who giggled and hid her face in his chest in her adorable manner.

"I wish Zarin came along." Vali said at last to Xiva who had taken in a deep breath.

She looked at her brother wondering what was wrong. When she saw the expression on his face was a sad one, she instantly became sad too.

"Forget about Zarin and do not say anything around mother or father."

Vali looked at her brother confused. Why should she forget Zarin, one of her only friends? She realised he was right, though. Their parents did not know of Zarin.

"Mother I think it is time." Xiva said in the direction of their parents, speaking coded so as not to upset Vali. However, Vali came undone at the sight of her mother bursting into tears. Xiva put down his little sister and watched her run to comfort their mother.

"It is okay mother. I don't want to go home either. Father, can we not stay a little longer? Please?"

Vali added the please has an afterthought, as she looked at her father pleadingly. She just wanted her mother to stop crying.

"Oh Vali, I love you so much! I do not....I cannot... Vanon!" Vali's mother said as she hugged her tightly.

Her mother continued screaming for her father, placing her daughter on the ground. Vali was upset about how her birthday was making everyone sad. Even her father looked very upset.

Vali felt her brother's hands on her shoulder and she looked up at his face.

He refused to look at her, but said to her instead, "Vali, no matter what, be strong and never let anything hold you back. Know your family loves you."

What Xiva had said was sweet and she would never forget his words. Still, she wondered why he had said it in such a heavy tone. It was like...a farewell. She wanted to cry. Her birthday was ruined.

"Roni, we entrust you with our most valuable and loved treasure." Her father said.

Vali listened in confusion at her father. Again, the tone of the whole situation was that of a goodbye.

"Vali, we have to go. We love you." Her father said to her.

She smiled at him in understanding.

"It is alright father, I'd rather leave if everyone is getting sad."

Her father just nodded his head at her, before taking his wife's hand on his left and his son's hand on his right. His wife and son linked their free hands, barricading Vali in the middle of the circle of their bodies.

"Take very good care of yourself." Xiva said to her before her family started chanting in a foreign tongue.

Vali understood their words but did not know the meaning of the situation. The three of them closed their eyes and Vali's eyes, on their own accord, followed suit.

Vali opened her eyes and rushed to the swing, she was so happy to be here. This had to be the best birthday she could have ever wished for.

"Vali let's go home, it's getting late."

Vali whipped around in the direction the voice had come from to see Roni approaching her. She looked at the sky to see it had indeed gotten darker. She carefully got off the swing and skipped over to Roni. Vali smiled up at her. Roni, of course, smiled back.

"Best birthday ever, Roni!" She exclaimed to her before looking around the empty park one more time.

With a final smile, she turned, letting Roni lead them back home.
