Spirit of Wolf and Water

Cora is a normal 17 year old girl, she has a barn, and has her friends who have her back. Her father died three years ago and her and her mother dont spend very much time together anymore. But when a cougar attacks Cora and she is saved by a siren named Tuari, they go through the challenges of the water curse together. Even though Cora and Tuari live together and they know each other quite well, does Cora know Tuari well enough? Is Tuari all she says she is? Will Cora ever put the pieces of the mysterious attacks together or will it lead to a place she doesnt want to go?


31. Cora


Its been what feels like forever since leigh and i kissed. Ive given up counting the days of how long its been. Winter is here now and its a winter wonderland here. Pure glisssning white powder is covering the town. Everyone is enjoying the cold, building snowmen, drinking hot cocoa, laughing without a care in the world. I couldnt bring myself to enjoy it as much as everyone else, kota tried to lift my spirits but i remained inside. 

Since it has become so cold out the pool is drained and the ocean is off limits due to the storms which has caused me to get weaker. Maybe its just the weather changing or maybe it is leighs fault that i dont even eat anymore. Sleep is out of the question, all i see is his face and all i hear are the taunts of the waves.

A knock at my bedroom door brought me out of my trance, it was kota. 
"Hey" he said with a smile, i tried to smile back, 
"Long time no see," i said, trying to keep it light as i see him almost every day. 
"What are you up to?" he asked sitting next to me. 
"Just admiring the snow." 
"Its quite beautiful." 
"Yeah" i said finally looking at him
"Do you wanna go out in it?" he put his hand on mine hoping id say yes
"I dont know." 
"Cora you need to get out," 
"Im fine kota"
"Youre not. I can see that youre not." 
I frowned and so did he, 
"Why wont you let me help you," he said in a whisper.
"Im sorry" i said truely meaning it, "ok." 
"Ok what?" he said eyebrow up, confused
"Lets go." i started to stand up and i reached out my hand.
"Really?" he said with a giddy smile 
"Yes" i said with a small smile. I didnt really want to go out but i hated disappointing kota. We did make up after all and i didnt want to ruin it again. 
"What do you want to do?" he asked me turning around so i could quickly get changed. 
"Anything you want" 
"Hmmm okay" 
I was almost changed, just about to out my shirt on and kota turned around. His jaw dropped, not in amazement but realizing what had really been happening. My skin now clearly showing my ribs. Feelign selfconcious i quickly put the shirt on. Neither of us said anything, kota just stared at me and i stared at the ground. 
"We could go for a winter walk," he said a small smile returning, "get some hot cocoa and go for a forest walk in the snow?" 
A full, real smile spread across my face, "that sounds perfect." 
I put some extra layers on and gave kota a hug. Then we got in his car and drove to the diner. To my suprise the diner was packed with people. I felt nervous going in as i hadnt been out of my house for quite sometime. 
"Do you want me to just go in?" kota asked
"No its okay, ill come." 
He raised his eyebrows at me insuprise and we both entered the diner. Smiling faces greeted me and i walked up to the register. We ordered our hot cocoa, mine with extra marshmallows, and then left to head to the forest. 
I felt myself start to smile as we got closer and closer to our favourite trail.
When we arrived all i could see was snow and trees, the sharp smell of pine and the crisp air hitting my cheaks, i couldnt help but giggle. Kota put his arm around me and gave me a squeeze.
"You know i havent seen you this happy in so long." he sounded nervous, as if bringing up my sudden mood change would brake it in an instant. I gave him a big smile and we headed along the trail, we chatted, laughed, drank hot cocoa, and just enjoyed everything. 
"This is what i needed," i smiled at him, "thankyou so much kota" 
"Im glad i could help," he gave me apunch on the arm, "its good to have you back"
