“Mom! Dad! No!”

*7 years later*

I’m running though the forest as fast as I can. I’m being chased by two big werewolves. One is smaller than the other though. I’m thinking that the bigger one which is a copper color, may be a beta. He’s big, but not big enough to be an alpha. And the smaller one with is a gray color, might be a warrior wolf.

I should probably introduce myself. My name is Ryan Turner. 7 years ago my parents were killed by I’m now assuming an alpha and maybe a beta with another man. They burst our door down but I was hiding behind the stairs. I saw my parents and those 3 men shift into giant wolves. After my parents were killed, the men left. I ran to my grandmother’s house which is about 10 minutes away. She told me about a creature called a werewolf. She later told me that my parents and her too, were werewolves. She said something about me but I didn’t hear. I was to shocked to do anything. She gave me guns and many other things including silver. From then on, I promised I would kill any werewolf that I came across for my parents.

But many things have changes over the past 7 years. I have met some packs that are really nice. So I decided then on that I would only kill one if they made a threat towards me. Thus my journey has started to rid bad werewolves of the world.

I should probably tell you why I’m being chased right now. I was walking through a territory trying to go unseen. Well apparently I was spotted. They saw my guns and went full protective mode. I told them that I didn’t want trouble and I would only use them if they made a threat towards me. They didn’t listen and the beta I think stepped towards me. I fired at his foot, and I took off running. And this is how the chase continues.

Chapter 1: Running like hell


‘Oh my gosh. Why won’t they leave me alone.’ I thought to myself.

‘Maybe because you shot at his foot!’ This annoying voice said. I don’t know where it comes from, but a week after I turned 17, it started talking to me. It won’t tell me who or what it is and it only pops up in my head when I’m in a bad situation. Whether I’m hurt, in trouble, or I’m torn between 2 decisions.

‘Seriously. Please tell me who you are!’

‘You will find out soon enough Ryan.’ And with that it left. I think it’s a girl, because it sounds like a girl. I’m just gonna call her Missy. I’m tired of calling it, “That Voice.”

‘I guess I can handle that name. It’s better than that voice you always called me.’ I rolled my eyes at her.

I looked behind me and saw the 2 wolves a couple yards behind me. I don’t know how, but I could run pretty fast. And I don’t even know why the got pissed me in the first place. The one said something about a rogue. But before he could explain anything, I shot and ran. I came up to a small clearing and looked around. I heard a low growl and slowly turned around. “What the hell do you want with me?! And why did you call me a rogue?”

The 2 wolves shifted and I turned around so they could put clothes on.

“My name is Jake. I’m the beta of the Rising Moon Pack. And this is Max. He’s 3rd in command. Why are you trespassing rogue?!” Jake said.

“For one, I didn’t know I was trespassing! And two, what is a rogue?”

“A rogue is a werewolf without a pack. They are scums. Low-life creatures. And why do you have hunting gear?”

“But I’m not a werewolf!”

“Whatever. I’ll just ask the alpha what he wants to do with you. Now answer my question. Why do you have hunting gear?!”

I felt unshed tears coming through and I quickly looked down. I fell to my knees and started crying. I heard someone come near me and I flinched when they touched my shoulder. “Are you okay?” Max asked me with concern.

“The reason I have to guns is because of what happened 7 years ago. I was 10 at the time, and I didn’t know what was going on until later that night.” I said crying. Now Jake came over. He looked interested in my story now.

“What happened 7 years ago- uh. What’s your name?” Jake asked me.

“Ryan Turner.”

“Okay Ryan Turner, what happened when you were 10?”

I told them both to sit down and I told them the story. About how my parents were killed and I found out how my parents and grandma were werewolves. Then she gave me the guns and told me to be careful on my journey. Max had tears in his eyes and pulled me into a hug. Jake sat there deep in thought. I also told them how I met nice werewolves so I will only shoot if they make a threat. “So is that why you shot at me?” Jake asked me.

“Yes. I’m sorry, but I’ve been attacked before and that’s why I shot at you. When you took a step towards me I got scared and panicked. I thought you were going to attack me because its happened before. I’m sorry Jake. But I need to leave.” I said while getting up.

“Ryan!” Jake called to me. I turned around and raised my eyebrow at him, waiting for him to continue. “You can’t leave. It’s the rules. You shot at a beta.”

“Ugh!!!” I said.

“Don’t worry the alpha is on his way.” I stiffened when he said alpha. The alpha of that pack is the one that killed my parents while the other 2 watched and did nothing. Jake gave me a weird look and I started shaking in anger. I heard a twig snap behind me and my first instinct was to grab the gun and get ready to cock it.

Jake took the gun from my hands and shook his head. I looked at him worried and he looked confused. I never told him that it was the alpha who killed my parents. Truthfully, I’m scared of ALL alphas of because what happened.

A gorgeous man came out from the trees. He had blonde hair, electric blue eyes, his skin was perfectly tan, and he had an 8-pack. I only know this because his shirt was off. He looked up and I quickly looked down. “Alpha Finn,” when Jake said his name, I got this weird warm feeling. “This is Ryan Turner.” I looked out of the corner of my eye and saw him shiver. I don’t know why, it’s really warm outside. It’s not cold at all. But maybe that was just because I was running like hell from Jake and Max.

The Finn guy approached me and stopped. “Ryan.” I shivered when he said my name. What is happening too me?

‘Hahaha! This is gonna be good!’ Missy said.

‘What are you talking about Missy?’

‘You’ll find out Ryan.’ And with that she left.

“Look at me when I’m talking to you.” Finn said. I took a step back and that caused him to step closer to me. He grabbed my chin and forced me too look at his eyes. “Mate” he said. Oh hell no!! My eyes got big. No, no, no. This is soo not happening too me. It’s bad enough that my mate is a werewolf, (and yes I know about mates. My grandmother told me about her and my grandfather.) but it’s even worse that he is an alpha. I got my face out of his hand and I took off running.

I heard a growl come from behind and it was followed by Finn yelling. “Get her! I don’t want my mate running away from me. If you grab her, bring her to me immediately!” This only caused me to run faster. I looked behind me and saw them split up. This can’t be good.

I saw Jake running behind me and I heard a noise to my right. That’s when I saw Max and he has this stupid wolfy grin on his face. Well, werewolf face. I turned left, but only to run into something hard. I was caught before I hit the ground. Tingles spread up my arms where he was holding. I didn’t have to look up to know it was Finn.

“Hello little mate.” Finn said smirking at me.

‘Help me Missy. Please?!’

‘No. You’re good.’ And then she left. I’m on my own in this one.
