Made by Man

Abigail was just a normal girl. She was kidnapped and made into an experiment. She escapes a whole new person. Her eyes and hair. The fact that she can change into a wolf. Yeah. A wolf. She also discovers the werewolf aren't just myth. Now she's struggling with the world she's only read in books. Being real just made it a lot scarier.

4. -------

I watch cars go by. We’ve been on the road for almost three hours and haven’t said a word. My stomach growls and I realise I don’t remember the last time I ate.

 

I sigh. “Want to stop to get something to eat?” Alex asks.

 

I shrug. “Sure.”

 

He turns on the first exit. “Are you ok?” He asks.

 

“I’m fine.” I keep my eyes on the window.

 

I feel his hand grab mine. He gives my hand a squeeze. “I’m sorry that you’ve had to go through what you went through. I can’t imagine how you must have felt.”

 

I look at him. “The pain I was in was worse than my first shift. Much much worse. I wished for death even in the brief moment I was conscious. Words can’t even begin to describe it. It felt like my insides were being turned to mush. Like i was being torn apart into little pieces. When I wake up I feel and look different.” I see a mix of emotions go through his eyes.

 

He pulls into Arby's and parks. He lets go of my hand and unbuckles. “I think we should go inside. Get out of the car for a while.”

 

I unbuckle and open the door. He gets out and comes around staying close to me as we walk into Arby’s. I order a Arby’s sandwich and a small coke. He orders the same thing and hands me mine and we go to sit down.

 

“Are you homeschooled?” He asks. I shake my head.

 

“No I go to a public school.” I take a sip of my coke.

 

He takes a bite of his sandwich. “Then I will be dropping you off at school and pick you up. “

 

“Ok.” I take a bite of my sandwich then wash it down with some more of my coke.

 

He looks at his phone. “We still have 19 hours to go.”

I nod finishing my food. I get up and throw the trash away. He throws his away as well and we head out to the car.

 

Alex opens the door for me and I get in.

 

I buckle up and he gets in.

 

He starts driving again. I look out the window. After a while I get tired and fall asleep.

 

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

I am running. Fear slices me like a knife.

 

I turn back to see a wolf chasing me. It’s getting closer.

 

I trip and fall to the ground. I get up and the wolf stops right in front of me. It growls showing it’s sharp teeth. I take a back up my back hitting a tree.

 

It crouches like it’s about to pounce. My heart races and I close my eyes waiting for pain. I feel nothing and open my eyes to find Alex in front of me protectively.

 

The wolf is gone and Alex looks at me. “Time to say goodbye Abigail.” His face is in a cruel smile.

 

My eyes widen in confusion and fear. He laughs coldly. The scene changes and I’m falling. Alex is watching with no emotion on his face. I also see my mom with a smile on her face as she waves.

 

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

I feel a hand shaking me. “Abigail. Wake up. It’s just a dream.”

 

My eyes open and I gasp.

 

Alex pulls me to him. “It’s ok. Your ok. 

I won’t let anything happen to you.”

 

He wipes something wet from my cheeks and I realise I am crying.

 

I wait until my heart is no longer racing. “I’m sorry.”

 

He hugs me. “You shouldn’t apologize. You had a bad experience. It’s normal to have nightmares.”

 

I sigh. “I haven’t had nightmares since I was little. Usually I can tell I’m dreaming and change it, That seemed so real.”

“It’s completely normal.” He says again.

 

I look around. “How long was I asleep?”

 

He shrugs. “Almost the whole way. We have maybe an hour before we get there.”

 

I look at him. “Really?”

 

He nods. “I wanted to let you sleep. You’ve been through a lot.”

 

I sigh. “I wish I had more time to prepare myself. I’m probably going to be bombarded with questions.”

 

He shakes his head. “You’re thinking about it too much.”

 

I let out a breath of a laugh. “I know my parents. They are as strict as can be. I was probably going to get punished if I had come back home for leaving. They are going to think I purposely got myself kidnapped to avoid punishment.”

 

He sighs. “I don’t think your parents will think you did it on purpose.”

 

I roll my eyes. “That’s because you don’t know my parents. Everything that happens is my fault. If a chair gets broken it’s my fault. If someone leaves the light on it’s my fault. Someone forgot something. My fault.”

 

He crosses his arms. “I think you’re over exaggerating.”

 

I place my hand on the handle of the door. “Believe what you will. I’ll be back in a second. I’m going to the restroom.” I open the door and walk out.

 

I head inside the gas station and walk to the restroom sign. I hear footsteps behind me but think nothing of it since it is a gas station.

 

My hand touches the handle to the bathroom and a hand goes over my mouth. An arm quickly wraps around mine and pins me there. I struggle to get free as I feel their hot breath against my ear. “Don’t make a sound.” The voice whispers.

 

There’s something familiar about the way the person smells. I relax slightly. The hand slowly  moves from my mouth. “Good. Now I am going to ask what you are doing on my territory without permission. You will answer but do nothing more than that. If you do I will knock you out and bring you to my Alpha.”

 

Then the familiarity of the scent clicks. “You’re not human.” I say stupidly.

The person turns me and pins me against the wall. My eyes scan a man. He’s taller than I am by a couple of inches. He has auburn hair in a short cut except for the front which is spiked. His eyes are an almost carmel color. He has a little stubble on his chin but other than that he’s clean shaven.

 

His grip tightens. “I won’t ask again.”

 

I sigh. “I’m just trying to get home. I was just coming in here to use the restroom then I’ll be on my way. I’ve had a rough couple of days and would appreciate a small break.”

 

He glares at me. “Why should I believe you. You don’t smell like you have a pack. You smell like a rogue. I’d better bring you to my Alpha just incase.”

 

I hear footsteps. Someone clears their throat. “That won’t be necessary. As she said she is not going to be in your territory for long.” Alex says.

 

I roll my eyes. “I don’t need your help.”

 

The man laughs. “If it isn’t the boy who was kicked out of his home by his own father. Rumors travel far Alex. You were kicked out right before being Alpha. Guess your father didn’t think you would be a good Alpha.” He says.

 

Anger flashes in Alexander’s eyes. “You have no clue what happened. I left that man. He was the cruelest man. I didn’t want the title of that man’s pack. Now hand over the girl so I can take her home.”

 

The man smiles. “I don’t think so.” He looks at me, “I think she would be an amazing addition to the pack.”

 

Alex growls. “Don’t you dare.”

 

The man flashes a smile with his canines elongated. “Why not?” He leans closer to my neck. “I would take good care of her.”

 

Alex grabs the man and shoves him against the wall. “I said no.” He turns to me. “Get in the car.”

 

I want to argue with him but I can tell i shouldn’t so I walk to the front entrance of the store. I get in the car and lock the doors.

 

Alex walks to the car anger clear on his face. I unlock the door and he gets in slamming the driver door. He glares at me. “Do you know what could have happened if he had marked you?”

 

I give him a look of confusion. “Marked me?”

 

Alex sighs. “Yes. If he bit you I wouldn’t have been able to take you home. You would be his. Part of his pack. That’s what a mark is. He wanted to claim you as his. If I hadn’t have stopped him you would be stuck here.”

 

I look down. “I’m sorry. I didn’t know.”

 

He sighs. “I shouldn’t be fusing at you. You’re right. You didn’t know. At least now you do. Just next time I’m coming inside with you so you can be safe.”

 

I look at him. “I honestly don’t like the thought of you being everywhere with me. I know it’s to keep me safe but with some training I can take care of myself.”

 

He shakes his head. “The reason you need a bodyguard is because there are people after you. You can’t protect yourself as well as someone else could.”

 

I roll my eyes. “I probably could. You shouldn’t risk your life for someone like me.”

 

He glares. “Don’t.”

 

I glare back. “What? Say the truth? That I am a freak? A monster that shouldn’t exist? A weapon of man?”

 

He groans. “How many times do I need to tell you? You are not a freak. You’re not a monster.” He says.

 

“How many times do you have to try to sugarcoat what I am? You can keep going but it wont change how I feel. What I think of myself.” I say I grab a handful of my hair, “My hair is different, my eyes, my sense of smell, my hearing, my eyesight. I’m not who I was. I’m a freak.”

 

He growls at me. “You are not a freak. Just because your not who you were before doesn’t mean you’re a freak. You can take what’s happened to you and do good with it. Look at me. Am I a freak?” He ask.

 

I shake my head. “No because you were born that way. I wasn’t. I was a science experiment.”

 

His eyes grow darker. “Stop. You really need to stop.” His voice is strained.

 

I glare at him. “Why does it make you so angry? Why do you care so much what I think of myself?”

 

He growls. “I don’t know.” He snaps.

He sighs. “I don’t know ok? I guess it might be because I know how you feel. I’m an outcast. My father was abusive and a terrible Alpha. I left him so I wouldn’t have to deal with him for any longer. I couldn’t live with him any longer. I’m technically a rogue but no pack sees me as a threat so they leave me alone.” His eyes go back to their normal color. I see a pain to them and I feel guilty.

 

“I’m sorry.” I apologize.

 

He shakes his head. “It’s fine. It’s why I am a bodyguard. So I can at least feel like I’m something.” He turns the ignition, “Let’s get you home.”
