*Moonlight* [chapter 5]

Posted in *Book* on 24/06/2012 by Soul Reaper

I slept all night without being awaken and without having nightmares. Personally, I prefer just that. Awoke suddenly. As if my body just knew that sleep is enough. I looked with half-open eyes and saw the clock – 5:30 am. Damn! I climbed out of bed with a groan. I took off my clothes, and then took a shower. This helped me to wake up. I could go back to bed and to sleep yet, but I didn’t. I went down; I made two sandwiches and returned to my room. Then I heard a strange noise. Come from outside. Like something light hit the window. I put the plate on the desk and went to check. At first I did not see anything because the light was low. But then I could distinguish the silhouette. I opened the window and saw him.

 

-Mike? What are you doing here at this time? – I did almost whisper, but I knew he would hear me.

-Let me in. We need to talk. – And he spoke quietly.

-You are crazy!

 

However quietly crept downstairs and opened the door for him. He went and just as quickly hid in my room. I closed the door and even locked. This is crazy.

 

-Talk faster. Why are you here at this time?

-I was worried after you escape like that. A little too far.

-Yeah, sure!

 

We sat on the bed I took a plate of sandwiches in my lap. Mike randomly walked around the room. He was silent, but I knew he wanted to say something. I was nervous and began my dizzy.

 

-Please, Mike, just sit down. His head ached from you.

 

He sat next to me, but he was nervous.

 

-Want a sandwich? – I asked and I gave my plate to him.

 

He took it because he was obviously missed breakfast. And I do not want a hungry wolf in my room. He ate it in less than five minutes and left me with rapt attention. I smiled and rotated eyes.

 

-Why are you so interested in my post? You know me from one day.

-And yet… You’re my friend. Only you know my secret without being involved with me or this place.

-By the way… Kate will not you be angry?

-You know about Kate?

-Yes, Tara told me… while you were not looking. She is your girlfriend, right?

-Mate. Simply put… she’s my female.

-Wow…

-She knows that we are friends. I explained to her.

-And she doesn’t mind?

-Well, no.

-You must meet us. We’ll calm down. I do not mess with boys who have girlfriends. Especially if they are my friends.

-If you want I will introduce you today.

-Great. – I smiled.

 

Then came a signal from the laptop that I have a new message. I put the plate aside and went to check. Immediately regretted that I did it. Again it was a message from Sean. I was visibly worried. Like in my stomach had a flock of bats. It felt nasty. Mike jumped from his seat and stood behind me. He read the message. I felt he looked at me and put his hands on my shoulders.

 

-Are you okay? Who is Sean and why you’re so worried?

-He… He was my boyfriend. My biggest mistake.

-Why? – I felt myself tense.

-Treat me like property. Once even hit me. Wow, how mad I was then. I could not get out of anger.

-He hit you?

 

The anger boiled up in him. His eyes have become species. He was breathing quickly and heavily. I was sorry that I told him. I do not know why I did it. I speak about this incident for the first time. I was worried.

 

-Please be quiet. It’s not much.

-You are my friend, just like the rest of the group. I keep my friends safe. If someone hurt you I’ll kill him.

-Don’t be like that.

-For starters, everyone will know that you know the secret.

-But you said…?

 

-This change just now. You’re part of our little pack and we’ll keep you. Kate will be worried about you.

-Really?

-As I told her about our deal, she was glad that I found someone with whom I can talk. We share the same feelings and thoughts… so to speak. Only that she is more sensitive.

 

He was right. I only managed to hide the presence of Mike. Mom and Dad went out early because of a party (one of many) in which participated. All people participated in the preparation. This was easier to hide Mike. Then he called and the group came almost immediately. I saw Kate. Very nice girl. With pleasure I would call her “Goldilocks”.  As I said it was… When Mike told them what happened with Sean and slap and they like him were angry. Only Kate hugged me and said that no one will hurt me again. I was surprised that no one is angry that Mike has told me that they are all wolves. I really felt like part of the group. I even made breakfast and fun. I told them about the visit of two families last night.

 

-Lynn was here? Seriously? – Mel could not believe it.

-Yes. She did not look bad, but I do not like it. I do not know why.

-No wonder. She is a real bitch. She seems quiet, but will tear you to pieces without thinking. – Freddie said while bit off a piece of his sandwich.

 

I smiled to his comment. I do not think I ever smiled sincerely. At least since I came here. But they made me feel good. Incidentally, I learned that Freddie and Mel are a couple, and Tara and a Jonathan, but he was out of town for two days. For now, Chris was not bound “officially” but he knew who was his mate – Leticia. Since I found out about this… tradition. But I will not hide that he was looking me very tempting at times. Just irritates me. I did not pay attention.

 

At one point, Freddie became restless.

 

-What is it? – Mel sat on his lap and kissed him on the cheek.

-Alex was here?

-Yes. Yesterday. I told you.

-No. I do not talk about yesterday.

 

Just then someone knock at the door. Everyone knew who was there. And I came to understand from their reactions. Alex. They do not like him and I understand them. He has a nasty character, and nod hiding that not like my friends. No way. I went and opened the door. Alex looked great with this gray t-shirt. Anyway.

 

-What do you want? Francine needs me?

-No.

-Then why are you here?

-Your mother worries that you’re alone.

-Well, I’m not. Do you want to come in?

 

I felt embarrassed in front of him and yet it seemed so right. I pull back and make him space to came in. This time I noticed something strange in his behavior. He does not exuded coldness as before. I closed the door behind him and walked into the kitchen, where were the others. They were not fascinated by his presence. Chris decided that it cannot hurt if he annoying him.

 

-What are you doing, Alex? Are you Lynn has granted the strap?

-Shut up! – Alex growled because he was worried that I will understand what I already knew.

-Calm down!

-Lynn is not my…

-Mate? – I smiled.

 

He looked startled. Oh yes! Perfect look, but I did not like this… fear.

 

-Anita…?

-Oh yes! She knows it, Alex. – Mike said. – She knows and be quiet. If you or others try to hurt her… there is someone to take care of her.

-To hurt her? – With utter bewilderment he said. – Are you insane?

-Come on, Mike. Don’t start this again.

-This bastard Sean…

-It doesn’t matter. – I sighted wearily. I do not like controversy.

 

But Alex was not satisfied with that. He insisted and Mike told him about the blow. Oh! This topic is so stupid and old that I do not want to remember that. Alex was angry more than it should to be. We all were surprised by this because it was quite sincere. I was most surprised of all.

 

It so happened that my friends had to go to the town. Called them a man named Lucas Michaelson. They do not tell me anything, and I did not ask. And Alex had to go, but did not. He stays with me and I do not know why. But somehow I was glad.

*Moonlight* [chapter 4]

Mom parked in front of department store. We both got out of the car. I started looking around. There were hardware, library, hair salon… At least on this street. They looked decent. There was a restaurant. Fast food more accurately. There I noticed a group of young people on my age. The boys and girls did not look different from teenagers in the big city. I’m sure they noticed me too. I felt their studied eyes when I entered after my mother in the store.

 

My mother spoke with a woman. Medium-high with red hair and dark green eyes. I heard that her name was Reina Miller. She was the age of my mother. The two laughed. They were joined by another woman. Black beauty with thick black hair with crimps. There was a typical black eyes. I watched three of them few minutes and then decided to look around. I heard them to mention my name and I felt their eyes. I did not stop and went to look. Almost bumped into two girls. They sat and watched the three amused women. I decided to apologize because I do not want to create enemies from the first day.

 

-Excuse me! Maybe I should watch where I go.

 

As I looked them better, I realized that they are daughters of the new friends of my mother. Oh yes! The “black” woman was Fiona Brooks. The blonde was obviously the daughter of Mrs. Miller. She spoke to me.

 

-So you’re the new girl? Nice to meet you. I’m Mel and this is Tara.

-Hey! – She smiled with sparkling white teeth.

-Hello! I am Anita Wilmington. – I nodded slightly.

-I think our mothers liked each other. – Mel said.

-I agree. – I smiled slightly.

 

The two girls looked at each other, and then I was offered to show me the town. I agreed involuntarily. Anyway, now dying of boredom there. And they seemed friendly. I just told my mother, and so I met Reina and Fiona. And they were nice to me. Then I followed the girls out.

 

They looked to the group in the cafeteria and just rolled their eyes. They don’t like them. They probably have a reason, but I intend to ask. Then there stopped dark green jeep. From it came Alex. He goes to this group. He saw me and paused. I do not look for more than thirty seconds. With the girls headed in the opposite direction, which means the small drugstore.

 

-Did you see? Alex collected these morons. – Mel said (her whole name was Melissa but prefer to be called Mel). – Oh yes! Anita, this was Alex Monroe. He…

-We have met. Last night my parents were at dinner at the home of Monroe.

-Only they? – Tara watching me with curiosity.

-Yes. I suffered a little… accident. – I showed my hands. – And I was tired.

-And how you met him then?

-Well, Mrs. Monroe was worried about me and sent him to check me if I was OK. Nothing special.

 

Both of them looked at each other conspiratorially. Then they stood on either side and gently took my hands. Probably wanted to get out more information.

 

-You and Alex Monroe… Alone…

-This guy freaks me out. – I shared. – When he sees me I think that rather he will kill me than to check me.

 

They laughed. I thought that I flushed slightly. Then we had to stop because there were three boys. In response to Tara and Mel, I judge that they know and are friends. One had dark hair. More precisely, dark brown. He had pierced ears. His eyes were brown and warm. He was dressed in black, as if preparing for a funeral. The second had a golden-blond short hair. His eyes were blue, but not cold. He wore light blue jeans and dark sneakers. There was a white shirt and dark blue shirt unbuttoned. The third was a redhead. He had golden eyes that immediately attract attention. He wore a black leather jacket with a white fluffy collar. He wore it on his naked and stood well because of his incredible musculature of his body. A dark blue jeans and approached him.

 

The three stood with us. I looked up and down. Just let me be judged and they did satisfy with what they saw.

 

-Hey! – Dark-haired said. –  I’m Chris.

 

He handed me a hand. Shaking then met his friends. Redhead was Mike and the blonde was Freddie. All three looked nice.

 

-Hello. I’m Anita. – I said timidly, and my heart was beating very fast.

-Where you going? – Mike asked.

-We will show the city on Anita. She will live here after all. – Mel answered.

-Why do not you come with us? – Tara asked. – Anita, you do not mind, right?

 

Her eyes begged me to agree. I shrugged my shoulders and agreed. Why not? In less than twenty minutes I got five new friends. But still I felt that they stared us. Chris also saw it and he threw leer. Then past me and gently pushed me forward. His hand was burning on my back. I just went along with others. They joked and we all laughed. This attracted attention. But nobody cared.

 

Even I did not notice how time flies. Fun all the time. For a moment I forgot where I was. That was nice. At least until it started getting dark and I did not have to go home. My mother was not there from long time and it seems that I must walk alone. I say goodbye to the girls and then left. Only that Mike caught up with me. He told me that he live near to my home. We were neighbors, just as with the Monroe family. He offered to send me home and I agreed. Who should assume that we have to walk there? Thank God than Mike knew a shortcut through the woods.

 

We walked in silence. Here among the trees was darker and I had to go near the boy.

 

-Don’t be afraid. I know this place like the palm.

-I don’t doubt. – I smiled uncertainly.

 

Suddenly I remembered the wolf. Involuntarily I looked into the darkness. This gesture did not go unnoticed.

 

-Are you okay?

-Yes. Why?

-I am afraid that you expect something. Or someone?

 

I bite my lip and it confirmed his assumption. He watched in anticipation. I hesitated whether to tell him. However, Alex reacts strangely.

 

-Come on! You can tell me.

-Well, it’s a secret.

-I’m listened.

-Well, yesterday I came across a wolf. Twice. Or rather he came to me. I do not know.

-Wolf…

-Yes.

 

I looked at him. His reaction was more relaxed that that of Alex and this surprised me. Even I thought that on Mike’s lips played a smile.

 

-Strange… – I began.

-What?

-Well, you reacted calmly. When I told that moron Alex… He straight off.

-You told him? Why?

-Long story.

-I have time.

-Well, he checked of I was OK.

 

I explained everything to the smallest detail. Mike listened attentively without interrupting me. I appreciated that. Although the way he responded was not what I expected. He was calm, as if what I said was something normal.

 

-Interesting story. – He said.

-You don’t believe me, right? – I slightly raised eyebrows.

-On the contrary. I believe you.

 

Then he stopped on the spot. I had to stop and turned to look at him. He looked really serious, but he does not scare me as Alex.

 

-What is it? – I asked. – Are you okay?

-Yes. I will reveal you a secret, but I want to give me a word that you would not tell anyone about it. Otherwise, we both will be in trouble.

-You have my word. – I nodded.

 

Then he led me to the trees where nobody sees us. Not that there was somebody to do it. Mike stood in front of me and looked into my eyes. His voice was quiet but hard as steel.

 

-That wolf… That was me.

-You?

 

I laughed because I thought he was joking with me. But when I stared into his eyes I realized that he was talking very seriously.

 

-How were you?

-I am a wolf. In fact 90% of people here are wolves. You can call us werewolves, shape-shifter, lycanthropes… That we are. People do not know this because we keep this secret at all costs.

-For that Alex…?

-Yes. He thought that you know our secret. This is dangerous. If people know about us they will attack us.

-Damn! Then why are you telling me this?

-You do not issue me yesterday. You did not tell that you saw me, and I thought I could trust you. Can I?

 

I nodded.

 

-Okay. This will be our secret, Anita.

-Why me? Not only because of confidence, right?

 

He paused. “Right in the top ten”, I thought. This time he looks in my eyes. He looked… sad.

 

-You are right.

 

He turned back to me because he did not want to look me in the eyes. Or rather he did not want me to look in his eyes. I felt uneasy. I approached him and touched his back. He knew that I was there and still be surprised by my touch. He jumped and forced me to walk away.

 

-I did not wanna startled you. –My voice trembled.

-I… The reason I tell you this secret is that I need to talk to someone else. With someone who is outside the pack.

-So you’re chosen the right person. And I need to talk to someone who is not telling me how great is here.

-And you like me. More precisely, you like the wolf.

 

I flushed and departed my gaze. This made him laugh. I felt I would be in fire. My heart was beating as if I ran. Just like in my nightmare.

 

-Just kidding, Anita!

-Maybe, but you’re right. I did not believe that is possible. It was just surprising.

-I was surprised that you do not shouting. Did you know that your blood is delicious?

-What? – I watched him with amazed eyes.

 

His words really startled me and I involuntarily stepped back. Because of that he got serious. He was afraid that I’m scared. He pleadingly toward me.

 

-I am just kidding. I will not hurt you. I swear.

-Don’t joke with that. Everyone here is crazy.

 

Perhaps my reaction was hastier than I wanted. I turned and plunged into the flight. It was a miracle that I do not stumble. I did not know if I’m in the right direction, but I did not stop. It turned out that I’m not wrong. I found myself in the rear of the house where the gazebo was. I had to stop because it was hard to breathe. My chest burned as if filled with coals. However, I continued to walk, because otherwise I would have found myself on the ground and I could not stand.

 

When I walked around the side entrance, I saw a pickup. I thought I knew it. Not a delayed response. Francine’s voice resounded merrily. I stood up and I took a deep breath, hoping to calm down faster. With effort I climbed the stairs and came to the door. Once I reached to hold the lock, the door opened by itself. I startled, when Alex stood before me. I was under control more quickly than I expected. I said nothing, but I passed him. No doubt that he us incredibly sexy, but his attitude is quite unacceptable. I did not even greet. I went straight into the living room to congratulate the other members of the Monroe family. Just that I saw other people too. One family and their daughter. Immediately I recognized the girl. Earlier I saw her with the others to the cafeteria.

 

-Anita! – My mother came and gave me a smile and shows me her new friends. – These are Jill and Martin Clifton and their daughter Lynn. She is on your age.

-Hello! – I began with some indifference.

 

Why do parents think that if you’re the same age with someone you should be friend with it? It’s silly if I must be honest. I would not saw that I want to be friends with anyone here… now.

 

-You know, baby…? I was worried that you remained in the town alone. – Mom said. – But I saw that you have new friends. Have you fun?

-Maybe so to speak. But “friends”… Let’s not rush. Hello! – I greeted and the Monroe family.

-Anita, dear… – Francine took my hand gently. – Why do not you call? I would send Alex to bring you home.

-No, thank you! Mike sent me… in a sense.

-Michael Parker? – She raised her eyebrows slightly, but was hardly surprised. Rather, she was slightly… annoyed.

-Yes. He was lives nearby as I know.

-You hang out with them? – Jill asked.

 

I looked at her with a very relaxed look. She was not tall, but there was a slender figure and nice face. Her hair was brown and although it was straight this was not the natural form. She had warm brown eyes that watched me carefully.

 

-Well, I honestly do not know. I like them. Fun group. I’m sure we will align.

 

Let’s see if the trap will snap. Obviously, they would not want from me to be “close” with Mike and others. I wonder why.

 

-They are a group of morons. – Martin said.

 

That’s it… The trap snaps laud and clear.

 

-Who knows? – I lifter my shoulders. – I will be in my room. Running through the woods is fun but soon my body would collapse from fatigue. I’m really glad to meet you.

 

I turned to Alex and I passed him without looking. I trained my indifference for a long time and now apply it in practice. It was indeed painful to pass the stairs to my room. However, I did it. I inserted in my room and deliberately did not close the door. I could hear for what they say below.

 

-Excuse her for her attitude. Everything here is new for her. It was hard to leave her friends. – My mother said with her typical tone.

-Probably she misses them. – Jill said.

-Yes. There were very close. Especially she and Sean. Nice guy.

 

Yeah, right! Sean is my boyfriend. Or at least he was before I knew that behind the mast of “good boy” hiding real jerk. Do you remember what I said about the “premature”? Well, he’s the reason. I will never forget the slap that he hit me. That bastard was thinking that he owned me. Because of him I do not regret that I removed from there.

 

-She has a boyfriend? – A surprise in the voice of Francine was somehow offensive.

 

Only Alex and Lynn stood there silently. Maybe they were obliged to attend. Interesting was the way how Lynn watching Alex. She has a crush on him. Maybe they are together. She did not like how his mother likes me. Will be interesting.

 

-Yes. Even I think they are still together. – My mother said. – I do not know for sure.

 

After her answer came silence. Or so I think because I stopped to paying attention to them. I got to check my mail. I had a lot of unread messages from my friends and especially from Sean. I checked them one by one. Most sounded monotonous. “How are you?”, “You arrived?”, “How looks like the place?”…  They told me how well they spend in the club or the pool. Apparently still lives without me. Only messages from Sean were different. “I miss you!”, “I should not let you go!”  And “I want to see you!” I rolled my eyes and delete them all.

 

If they continued without me so quickly, then I can too. Here I met cool… people. And I must confess that I felt guilty of my behavior towards Mike. I was too far and I had to apologize. I would do if he still wants to be friends.

 

I relaxed on the bed only for a moment, but it took longer than expected. Apparently I fell asleep. This does not prevent me to feel strange perfume in my room. Were female. Only that I can say.

 

*Moonlight* [chapter 3]

Posted in *Book* on 09/06/2012 by Soul Reaper

I fell asleep just before nightfall. I don’t even off my clothes. I just cringed a soft bed. I did not hear when my parents went. I did not know that I’m really tired. I hugged the pillow. I do not dream anything. Slowly inhale and exhale. My heart beat was with normal rhythm. Nothing different. Everything was fine.

 

It took several hours. Not much. I woke up at 1:00 am. I climbed out of bed and I took off my clothes. I put a T-shirt and shorts. I went down to the kitchen and poured me a glass of milk. I took a few sips when someone knocked on the door. I turned towards the door, still holding a glass. I do not leave it. Slowly I went to the entrance. I opened. It was not a smart decision, but hardly here are psychopaths.

 

I almost dropped the cup. Before me stood a man. Maybe about 25 years old. He was tall and with muscular body. He had tattoos. His hair was short and dark. His eyes were also dark and somewhat… alarming. He wore jeans and t-shirt. Strange. I do not know him.

 

-Are you Anita?

-Yes… Why? Who are you? – My voice was tired and slightly hoarse.

-She sent me to see if you’re better. My mother insisted.

-Your mother?

-Francine Monroe.

 

Now I clarified. This must be Alex. I slightly went off to do way for him. I invited him to come. He passed me quickly, but gracefully. I shuddered. Perhaps because of his icy demeanor. Just that now I could not think about it. At least not very clear. I closed the door and followed him. He stood in the living room. He studied the room.

 

-It’s not need to send you. I’m fine. I am sorry that you lost time.

-You don’t know this woman. She can be a real bitch if she wants.

 

I can’t argue, since I do not know her. I went to the kitchen to leave the cup. My heart was beating fast. Even if I’m not fully awake, but that does not mean I’m not impressed by him. I left the cup and turned, but that I was scared. He was there.

 

-You already know my name. Will you tell me yours?

-Alexander, but everyone calls me Alex.

 

I nodded. Then I decided to ask him a question that made me exited. I hesitated. The words swirl in my mouth like candy. Finally, I decided.

 

-Tell me something. You… Have you seen wolves around?

 

I don’t know if my question was wrong or not, but Alex is visibly upset. Something flashed in his eyes. He slowly stepped away. He made me and me to distress.

 

-Why ask me this question? The reason?

 

I don’t know why, but I got the impression that he already knows the answer but he wanted to hear it from me. Obviously a family trait.  I was scared, because around him was wracked sinister power.

 

-Answer me! – He growled.

-Well, I… I… I saw a wolf. The same… twice.

-And how it looks like?

-What is the matter? It was a wolf.

-Describe it to me. What happened?

 

He was really intrigued. And certainly seemed worried.

 

-Well… it was a large wolf with dark (brown) fur and golden eyes. – I could not hide my admiration.

-Is he hurt you? So you have your hands bandaged?

-No. I tripped and hurt so. The wolf just… licked the blood.

-Is that all? There he attacked you or…?

-No. Just smell me. He did not want to approach him and growled. But when I fell down he came toward me. He runs away when my father appeared.

 

He seemed to me that my words startled him.

 

-He… Your father… Is he seen it? Are you told someone for this… wolf?

-He does not see it.

-Did you tell anyone?

 

Why was he so insistent? As if that was crucial for him. He makes me afraid. I quickly left the kitchen, but he followed me. Got me by the shoulders and forced me to look at me. I was really afraid. My heart was beating very fast. How strange. This man frightened me more than the wolf. I felt my body trembling.

 

-Get off me! – My voice was quiet and scared.

-Did… you… told to… someone? –My eyes widened with surprise.

 

In his voice I heard growling. Don’t mock, but the purely animal growling. Even his eyes were not… human. I thought I imagined. That appears to be just me, because of fear. But I did not risk. Stepped back.

 

-No. I did not say. Nobody knows. I swear I will. – Tears streaming down my face.

 

Maybe Alex realized what he did because he let me go. I moved away as quickly as possible from him. I do not remember how I was rolled to the wall. Shivered, though I tried to calm myself. He took a step forward, but seeing that I turned more stopped and did not move.

 

-I will not hurt you, fool! Why’d you have to be stubborn? Look what you made me to do!

 

I said nothing, so he continued.

 

-Why did not you say? Why hide that you saw a wolf? Are not you afraid?

 

This time I looked out of the corner of my eyes.

 

-You scared me more.

 

He froze in place. My words shocked him. To be more afraid from him that from a predator? Sounds ridiculous.

 

-I did not tell them. I did not want to know. The Wolf… He’s my secret. The only thing that makes this place… interesting. I do not want to be here. But what choice do I have?

-You… You want to protect him? The wolf?

-Yes, so what? – Confident way through fear.

-Why? Why you doing this?

-I do not know, okay? I just don’t. Now get out.

 

I was surprised that I did not yell to him. I just looking at him angrily and burning him with eyes. It was hardly the reason, but he walked away. I waited until I hear noise from the engine of his car. Then I hid in my room. I almost stumbled as I ran up. Even locked the door. It was inconceivable that I could sleep. Only that I was wrong. I fell asleep almost immediately.

 

The nightmares began shortly thereafter. They were not exactly nightmares, but rather memories intertwined with possible consequences. I do not stop to see the inhuman look on the boy. The growl resounded in my head. I dreaming of running through the forest. I was barefoot, just like tonight. The darkness was everywhere. Fog crept along the ground and the trees shook like angry giants. I ran and looked over my shoulder. I tripped. I fell on wet soil. Then something pounded on me and I screamed. I woke up.

 

I was sitting in my bed. Breathing heavily as if I really ran. I was in sweat. My mother stood beside me and held my hand. She looked at me startled and tried to reassure me. Dad was probably in his new job otherwise he would be here. Not that it would make any difference. I had to breathe deeply to calm down. Inhalation… Exhalation… Again and again. A few minutes later I was well again.

 

-Nightmare? – My mom asks.

-Yes.

-What was it? Your scream was very loud.

-I do not remember, mom. Honest.

 

But I remembered that damn dream very well. But why to worry her with nonsense? I alone can handle this. At least I hope so. I smiled at her uncertainly. She suddenly changed the topic, because she knowing that I do not want to talk about it. Mothers know their children well. Or nearly so.

 

-Tell me… – She started. – Alex Monroe came to you last night? Francine was upset when she heard that you was injured and led him to examine.

-Yes, he was here.

 

I do not raring to talk about this bully. Yet it would be suspicious.

 

-What do you think? Nice guy. Not very talkative, but everyone likes him.

 

“Or almost everyone”, I told to myself to my mind. Too bad I could not share to her my true opinion.

 

-Well, yes… I guess. You know… I will take a bath. I’m sweaty because the nightmare.

-Okay. Then we will go to town. Will shopping and it’s a great opportunity to look around.

 

With reluctance out of bed. I took a change of clothes and went to take a shower. The bathroom was wonderful. There was a large tub and shower. As a large mirror. I took off my sweaty clothes and threw them in the laundry basket. I put the water and went under the hot spray. The water makes my muscles relax and so I felt better. My hair was tightly on my back and looked darker than it really is. Strawberry flavor shampoo made me smile.

 

I do not stay long, though I wanted. I dry my hair and put on clean clothes. Black t-shirt and dark blue jeans and brand new black boots. Mom gave them to me. I think that their intention was to bribe me for removal. Anyway. I tied my hair in tight ponytails and dress my black leather jacket that I received from my friends as a parting gift.

 

We left shortly thereafter. Mom includes the radio. There sounded a ballad that I could not recognize. I do not even listen to it. I leaned on the window and looked out indifferently. I had not big expectation for this “city”. What can be expected from a town in the mountains?


*Wolf reproduction, bounding and mating*

Posted in *Information* on 07/06/2012 by Soul Reaper
“Mating season can be anywhere from January to April with the alpha female having only five to seven days of oestrus. During this time, the alpha pair may move out of the pack temporarily to prevent interruption from other pack members. Also the alpha pair is almost the only pair to mate, to avoid over population.”
 
Usually the alpha male has dominance over the entire pack including the alpha female. But this not always true. During the mating season the alpha female takes total dominance even while the pups are still in the den. This is for the rest of the pack to know that she is the one to serve. She also decides were the den will be. With this in the packs mind, they go in search of food and bring it back to the den either for the hungry, laborious female or for the pups.

Although in rare cases a non-alpha pair will mate, according to one study, “Twenty to forty percent of the packs contain at least two adult females produce two litters”.

 

 

Breeding other than the alpha pair

Depends on certain conditions:

 

  • How dominate the alpha pair are:Mild winter’s, adequate food supplies, Habitat conditions (In the arctic multiple litters is the norm, due to the harsh conditions, more litters means more chances for survival.)
      – Sometimes the alpha female will become aggressive to the other females in the pack
      – Other males that mate may be chased from the pack by a very dominate alpha male
  • Disruption of pack hierarchy:
      – when the social order of the pack changes some researchers have noted that sometime subordinate females may mate.

Courtship and Bonding

When the two are about to mate, they bond, sleeping close and touching each other more and more. They will approach each other making quiet whining sounds, mouth each others muzzles, touch noses, and bump there bodies together. There may be mutual grooming and nibbling of each others coats and the two may walk pressed close together. The Male may bow to the female, toss and tilt his head, and lay his legs over her neck in what could only be described as a flirting manner. The two may even sleep side by side.

As the courtship progresses, the male will smell the genital region of the female to determine her readiness to mate, his tongue flicking in and out, testing the air for traces of her sex hormones, If she is not sexually receptive, she will repel the male with growls and snaps of her jaws.

 

Copulation

Right before copulation, the alpha pair might act jubilant by nuzzling, whipping tails in each others faces, and even urinating. This is when the actual bliss comes in by the alpha female releasing her sex hormones.Every Male in the pack reacts to this, even the male pups. As you might already know, wolves copulate like dogs, the male mounting the female from behind. During mating, an actual physical tie occurs caused by swelling in the alpha male’s penis and constriction in the female’s vaginal wall. After about five minutes the male will stops and twists around so the two are end to end. (This may be were the actual exchange of sperm is.) The two will still be in a tie up to a half an hour.

After Mating, pairs will continue to be affectionate. Although wolves often have long-lasting attachments to their mates, if one wolf dies, the widowed mate may breed with another wolf. In addition, some males may bond to different females in different years, destroying the long-held “mate for life” myth.

 

Gestation Period

The gestation period for wolves is fifty-nine to sixty three days.

*Moonlight* [chapter 2]

Posted in *Book* on 06/06/2012 by Soul Reaper

I spent the day exploring the surroundings. Traveled slowly through the house. I saw everything, as if I trying to save it. Touched the wooden paneling of the walls. Absorb the feeling that inspired the house. Probably the side looked a bit silly. For me it was not. If I know the place would be easier to accept. My parents left me alone and started to arrange their own things. Mom had her own studio and dad make his office. Both seemed absorbed in their own activities. I smiled against my will. Like has happened nothing. They are adapted immediately. This is admirable.

 

After me exploring the inside of the house, including basement, I went outside. The fog had lifted. The air was pleasant. Neither too hot nor cold. I took a deep breath and let saturated with mountain air fragrance to fulfill my chest. Then slowly exhale. It’s nice to not smell of burnt gasoline. And here is pretty quiet. Song of the birds made me feel good. Slowly I began to descend the wooden stairs. I felt the sun on my face. It was scattered over large trees. The shadow did not allow the heat to reach us. Another plus in favor of this place. Obviously I would lose faster than expected. But honestly, it does not bother me. I said I would not be sorry.

 

I took a few steps toward the woods. Then I felt a sense to steal me. Curiosity. I wanted to look around. I really wanted it. On the other hand I was afraid. Rushing is not something I allow. Once I let such a mistake. It was not fun. For that I did not leave the house. I only walked around. The rear was only a few meters from the thick part of the forest. There were lots of bushes and I do not dare to approach. The house had a pavilion. Not very big but enough to accommodate at least six people. I went there.

 

The wood, which was made, was smooth. Craftsmanship.  The ceiling height was little more than two meters. There was a small round table in solid wood. It had carved ornaments on the periphery. Flowers. Instinctively I ran a finger on them. I was careful. As if caressing a living thing. I sat on the bench. It was much more comfortable than it looks. I stayed there for more than a few minutes. I got up and walked out of there. I turned towards the house when something caught my attention. Noise. It came from the bushes.  I stood and stared at them, but I saw nothing. My heart was beating fast, but it was not fear. At least I think it was not. I filled with anticipation. There was no wind, it was calm now. There you go again. Behind the bushes had something.

 

My breathing quickened. I was ready to flee if necessary. Then I saw them. Two golden-yellow eyes looking at me. Test is staring at me. My fear is strengthened but I don’t move. Don’t look separated from those eyes. Like they hypnotized me.  Of fear and panic crept spark curiosity. Little by little it gained strength. I didn’t wait long. Wolf himself showed up. No wonder I don’t noticed him. His fur was dark and merges with the shadows. He just stood there. He watched me how I watching him.

 

I was both frightened and fascinated. For the first time I saw a wolf from a distance between us without a grate. “Would he attack me?” If he wanted to do it, I’d already be dead. I am sure of, though there is always room for doubt. I tried to precede step forward, but he began to growl.  I stepped back, but I don’t saw a fallen branch and stumble. While I knew I was sitting on the ground. I wiped my dirty hands in my jeans. So what. I’ll live it. But the injuries hurt. I hissed in pain and for a moment I forgot about the predator who watches me.  I didn’t hear his footsteps. I never saw him before it’s too close. Our eyes met. We were almost the same level. I hid a breath. Any scream would make him angry. I stood there speechless. Tiny beads of sweat beading on my forehead and my upper lip. I dared not even breathe. I held my hands pressed it to my chest. They were clenched in fists and have caused me pain. Even there was blood. Oh no! This fact brought to my mind fearful thoughts. What if the wolf attacked me because of the smell of blood? I could not scream. He probably would have ripped my throat before that.

 

I tried not to think about it. I closed my eyes very slowly. I did not see it. After no more than two or three minutes the animal smell hit me in the nose. I felt his breath. His wet nose touched my hands. He sniffed irritated by blood. Persistently tried to fling my arms. He growled in annoyance. Oh! I did not see another solution. Slowly relax my hands and opened the palms. He stuck them with the nose. I winced at his touch on the cracked place. I did not open my eyes. I did not show such courage.

 

I felt his coarser tongue. Licking the blood. As if my heart stopped for a moment. I prayed not to kill me. I had hoped. The wolf did not bit me as I thought. He just choked me. Hands… Clothes… I felt his muzzle on my neck. I thought, “Just one wrong move and I’ll be dead!” But yet tickled me. I should not laugh. I had at any price to master. Failed. I chuckled and he pulled away. Involuntarily I opened my eyes. Wow… How close he was. Our eyes were not on meters but centimeters from each other. Wow!

 

I don’t know why, but I felt a strong desire to touch him. He was not the only one who was curious. But I let my hands to lay motionless in my lap. I did not move. He was motionless for several minutes. Then the voice came to me of my father.

 

“Anita…”

 

He was looking for me. He was calling me. I did not answer. And the wolf with incredible speed back into the bushes. I did not feel his presence, but his smell was on me. Somehow primary. It was not like that of dogs. The difference was huge. But that day… was excitedly. If I was not come here, it would not happen. For the first time I rejoiced that I was there. Maybe it sounds silly, but it’s true.

 

Dad found me to sit on the ground among fallen leaves. It was not autumn, just the wind was stronger at times. I heard my father came. He was panting, and his face was worried.

 

Are you okay? What is it?

 

I smiled to him. My poor father. I did not want to worry him. In front of the other people he was unshakable as a rock. Inspired respect and even fear. And when he was with me was so attentive and kind. As if I was a little girl.

 

-I’m fine, Dad! Just stumble. I saw above the trees and did not saw these below. – I laughed.

 

Why lie? Why not just told him the truth? No… He would be much more afraid than me. He saw my hands.

 

-Oh dear! Look at your hands.

-I’m fine. Really. It no longer hurts. – This is the truth but I could not tell him it was because of the fact that they have wolf saliva.

-Come on! Come to take care of scratches.

 

He helped me to stand up. I know that he treats me like a child but I did not dare to tell him anything. Once I did it and hurt his feelings. I did not want to see him again so sad. I truce it. I stood up with his help. Shake my clothes and walked briskly towards the house. I had the urge to turn around and look at the bushes, but I did not. Damn! I have been here a few hours and I already have a secret.

 

It doesn’t matter. I got and my mom takes care of the scratches. She doesn’t say anything. Unlike my father, she abides with me. I thank her for that. She bandaged my hands and told me to be more careful. Then jokingly added:

 

-Well, now you have a good excuse not to come.

 

I looked at her with wide eyes. She was not angry. Indeed, she seemed that fun. I was embarrassed. Apparently my original justification for the fatigue crack. I shrugged my shoulders. This was my chance.

 

I went to my room with a delicious ham sandwich. I lie on the soft bed and indulge in speculation. The main topic… Well, it had fur and fearsome teeth.
