8. Chapter 8

          I laid back down trying to go back to sleep but got nowhere. Tossing and turning until the morning light shone in through my half-closed window. "Did I open that in my sleep or something?" I whispered before I got up to close it. I stopped mid-step when I heard feet coming up to my room. Jumping back in bed I laid down facing away from the door and shut my eyes. A small knock told me someone had come to check up on me and my door slowly opened. Not knowing who it was I stayed still a moment longer but nothing. I heard feet moving over towards me and then pasted. Someone was closing my window for me. "You can stop pretending," A voice said. I opened my eyes and saw that Xavier had let himself into my home and was staring at me as I pretended to sleep. 

          "What- how- Why are you in my house?" I shrieked at him. I swear the look in his eyes said that he wanted to laugh at me. "Anwer me now!" I yelled at him. He threw his hands up, still smiling, and held them above his head. I was venting and I knew that he found it funny by the look on his face. It only made me angrier. Growling I turned on my heels toward my open bedroom door and out I went. I went all the way downstairs and into the kitchen. I knew that he had followed me. I pointed to the couch and he sat down on it. I shot him a nasty look before going into the kitchen to grab some leftovers. Grabbing two I went back out and sat down next to him. I gave him one while I ate the other. "What is going on with me?" I asked him, now much calmer. I looked over to see him watching me.

          "What do you mean?" Asking me with his head tilted to one side. He looked so cute when he did that. Like a small little puppy that was wanting food. I felt the heat coming off of him and wanted to be closer to not be so cold. 

          "What I mean is this. I haven't been eating much and I haven't spoken much. My mom and dad looked at me like I had lost my mind when I had three stakes last night. I never miss a day of school. I never eat more than an apple. And more importantly, I have not talked to my own mom and dad in so long that the moment I opened my mouth to tell them something their eyes got big," I said halfway through getting up to stare down at him. I saw the big smile on his face and wanted nothing more than to make it go away. "Why is this happening?" I asked him again planting my hands on my hips. 

          "You. Are. A. Were. Wolf. I knew Alpha said that you didn't believe him but after last night I thought you might have believed him then," Xavier muttered under his breath. I gasped at this and almost started to back away again, just like last night. "I would stop right where you are Lauren. After being in your room last night, on Alpha's orders, I kinda want to be a little closer now," Xavier threated holding his breath and looking me in the eyes. His eyes, just like in my dream, were starting to glow again. I gulped but stayed right where I was. "Good. Now Alpha wants me to watch you until your first full moon. You know to make sure that you don't kill your mom and dad. The same old thing," He said making sure to be very clear on some parts while glazing over the rest. He looked me in my eyes and smiled sweetly. Seeing me worry he sighed,"They're glowing, aren't they?" I nodded slowly. He held his eyes closed and waited. When they opened again they were the normal light brown eyes that I had first seen. "Better?" He asked. I nodded and walked backward watching his face. I wanted to hide in the bathroom. 

          He followed me until I shut the door to the bathroom with him on the other side. At least this way I had something between us. I felt much safer the moment the door was closed, but I also felt very mean because I had closed a door on his face. 

 

**********

 

          On the other side, I just watched my mate close a door in my face. It hurt more then I let on to see and smell the fear that was coming off of her. I sighed and lightly rested my head on the door. I knew I was doing something wrong with this. Even the Alpha said that I was doing it wrong. I was chasing someone who was running with a tail between her legs. I had more control over myself then I did last night but that doesn't mean I don't want her less. I need her and every time she starts to shy away from me I feel like I need her more. I don't care if she will let me kiss her. I just want her in my arms again. I want to see a smile on her face and I want to see her happy again. 

          Her mom and dad aren't wolves like she is. Which is different but she is different. She isn't the normal wolf. From what I know, Alpha doesn't know why she was turned in such a sad part of her life. Maybe it was the witch at her school or she was born on a wolf moon, but other than that I know almost nothing about her. I need to find out more. I closed my eyes and wondered what life would be like if she didn't run away from me. Hearing a soft cry come from the bathroom made me what to go in and comfort her. I tried the door but it was locked. She didn't want me right now. I could take a hint. Taking my forehead off the door frame I looked for something to do. I walked up to the attic, which is where her room is. and sat down on her bed. If she wouldn't let me help her then I am going to at least make her bed warm for her. She was uncomfortable last night while she was trying to sleep. I know that as I sign that she is my mate.

          My mate. I don't know what is so interesting about those words. My mate. It is like I am supposed to say them and not at the same time. Maybe she is in the middle of yes and no. That would make sense. She feels the pull as much as I do. Maybe me a little more as I am a full blood wolf. I wonder if she minds if I do her laundry. She needs a cool bed to sleep on and me to sleep next to her. I do not think her parents would let that be though.
