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.

3. The Kimber's

Carrie had never been this anxious in her life.

Today she began work at the Kimber's, babysitting their two youngest children. Liam Kimber would also be there. Ever since she met him by the cliff, she hadn't gotten him out of her mind at all. This added to her anxiousness, being Liam was the only Kimber she had ever met. All Carrie knew was that he wasn't young and in need of babysitting, so at least she was resting assured in that area.

Her interview had been by phone of course, but she had impressed the socks off Mera Kimber, who knew she was the right one for the job upon hearing her voice. Just because of the way Carrie spoke, Mera had hired her. She had a feeling this girl could withstand the unordinary.

Carrie took in a deep breath and knocked on the house magnificent front door. Within a second, it was opened by a cute little girl, with the same eyes as Liam. How sweet.

Lace smiled at Carrie, taking her hand in a strong grip which was way too strong for an eight-year-old and dragging her inside the house.

"I'm Lace. And you're Carrie, right? You're pretty. I like you."

Carrie giggled. She had always thought she had some Indian heritage, but that thought had been dashed aside when she discovered who her true people were.

Upon entering the kitchen, Carrie was greeted by the whole Kimber family except for Liam himself.

Lee Kimber jumped off the table he was sitting on, alarming Carrie because of how high it was. No one paid any heed to it, but Lee looked at her and giggled. The little squirt had done it purposely to scare her.

Mera and Lenard Kimber smiled at each other. They were overjoyed by the instant 'click' between their children and the new nanny. She also was beautiful and around the same age as their son, Liam. Carrie had to be the ultimate solution to all their worries. Liam was a lone wolf, who liked keeping to himself. He hadn't found his mate yet and it was starting to alarm them. Especially because he had already reached the age of twenty.

"I'm Mera Kimber, and here beside me is my husband Lenard Kimber. That little scrawny boy over there is Lee and I see you have met Lace. You have met the pack with the exception of Liam." She informed me, frowning with a searching glance around the room at the mention of her son.

Of course, Mera didn't know I'd already had the pleasure of meeting her eldest son.

"I'm guessing he's still in bed. You're going to babysit these two little one's when Lenard and I are gone on Tuesdays and Thursdays." Mera nodded her head towards them.

Lace brushed her mother away and said she would show Carrie around, first taking her to her room to drop her carry-on bag.

Carrie loved her room in the house. It was cosy and comfortable, with everything a girl needed including a TV and desk area.

By the time she and Lace were done touring the house, both were in deep need of some refreshments. They raced each other to the kitchen, where Carrie proceeded to bump into someone and fall on her ass.

"Liam! What is your problem?" Lace asked to her older brother exasperatedly.

Red-faced, Carrie awkwardly picked herself up from the floor. She sure did have a habit of falling around him.

Lace dragged her away from Liam, who turned to look at her with an expressionless face.

"That was very rude Liam. Apologise now." Mera said to Liam, who turned to look at her with cold eyes.

What the hell? Carrie thought. He was acting like such a prissy bitch towards his mother.

Liam removed his eyes from her and turned them coldly on Carrie, who had become terrified that she had done something wrong.

"If you hadn't been running like a pre-schooler that wouldn't have happened." He snapped before heading out of the kitchen.

Lace handed Carrie a juice box with an apologetic smile, which she gladly took. She was still in shock from the Liam outburst when Lenard finally broke the silence.

"Let him be. He is just not a morning person."

Carrie nodded her head at him, taking note of what he had just said.

"Money is in the drawer in your room, and anything else these two might need should be in the list in your drawer, too. I'm sorry to say that all the Kimber kids can really be a handful. Don't mind Liam. Sometimes I think he is a kid inside an adult body." Mera said, chuckling.

"Shut up! Mera."

Carrie jumped in fright when she had heard his voice coming from behind her. Mera smirked, while Lace and her father just rolled their eyes.

Carrie just couldn't understand why Liam would treat his mother this way or even call her by her first name.

"Whatever Liam. Just behave and call your mother, she wants to talk to you."

Carrie almost gasped in surprise, it was like Mera knew what she was thinking which was creepy. Mera just winked at her and she and Lenard left the house, not bothering with any luggage. Carrie thought this was weird. Maybe it was in their car already.

Liam did not understand how his body and mind was reacting to Carrie Kiss. True she was a beauty a girl that any man would want on his arm but he knew that wasn't the case with Carrie. Everything about her was different. She called out to him like no other and he didn't want or understand those feelings. All the things he was feeling towards her made him want to lash out at her and tell her to leave. Because he knew without a doubt his inner wolf wanted her for his mate.

"While you're here just stay away from me and I won't get in your way." He said after a while of silence.

She looked at him when he said that, and shrugged her shoulders at him, before turning to talk to Lace and Lee. That was it? That was all the reply he was going to get from his statement?

He growled, slamming his cup of coffee on the table, and left the room.

Carrie jumped at his animalistic behaviour.

"Let him be. He isn't used to being ignored by a girl." Lace ensured her, giggling.

Carrie laughed at her statement. She hadn't done anything to Liam to warrant such rude treatments from him. What had he expected her to do after his statement? Beg him or look forlorn? He wasn't her reason for being here; it was his younger half-siblings.

"So what are we going to do today, little ones?"

"Let's go for ice-cream."

"Uhm, later in the day...now tell me all about you two."

The two instantly sucked up to Carrie, who had always loved kids. Carrie shared with them stories about her own childhood and Roni, who she referred to as her 'aunt'. It was painful to hide her past, but there was no other way. This was how life had to be.

Liam was listening to their conversation from his room, despite his warnings to Carrie. He wasn't going to stay away from her. In fact, he planned on uncovering all her secrets. He excused this behaviour, thinking that if she was going to be staying with his siblings, he might as well know everything about her.
