5: Motel

The next morning I was at the kitchen table with Ben, Cindy, and Devin. We were all eating in silence. They didn't know what to say after I told them of my true identity and about my plan to go back to Avery Falls. Devin's parents didn't know about the attack last night as Mayor Scratch thought it would be best not to tell them. They thought I wanted to go back to Avery Falls because I missed my real parents.

Ben was the first to speak and stared at me. "Son.." he put a hand on my shoulder. "You will always be our son. We support you on wanting to go back to your home."

"This is my home," I said and he pulled me into a hug.

"Dad, I'm going with him." Dev said with a serious tone he barely ever speaks with, but then he smirked. "Someone has to make sure he makes it there in one piece."

Ben chuckled, "I think that's a good idea, it'll make us feel better knowing you two are together." This time, Ben placed his hand on top of Cindy's.

"I have to speak with Mayor Scratch about leaving here."

I grabbed my plate and put it in the sink. I had my back to them because I hated getting emotional and said to them: "Thanks for everything you've done for me."

I turned around to face them when no one said anything, but Cindy had tears falling down her cheeks.

"We love you." She quickly pulled me into a hug and I placed my chin on top of her head while patting her back gently.

"I love you too, Mom."

You don't need to know how the rest of that morning with them went. Again, I hate being emotional.

I knocked on the Mayor's office door. "Logan, Devin, come in," his voice rang from inside.

We walked in and for the first time, Mayor Scratch wasn't smiling like when we usually entered his office. He had a serious expression on his face, "I know why you're here."

My eyebrow rose, "You do?"

"Sit." He gestured to the seats in front of his desk. We did as he asked and continued speaking.

"I know all about you, Alpha Prince."

"Wait, you knew all this time?" Devin interjected, "Unbelievable."

Mayor Scratch nodded at Devin, but looked back to me. "I was assigned to watch over you since the moment you stepped into Stronghold. I have a good friend who trusted me with this. I believe you've met their associate, Miss Darkholme."

"Who?" Devin and I said in unison, completely confused.

"Amira Darkholme."

"Oh." Was all I could say when I heard her name because I literally felt my insides flutter. What the fuck was wrong with me?

Devin stared at me with that stupid smirk on his. "Who's that?" He asked me in a sing-song tone.

"Shut it, Dev." I said without looking at him.

Mayor Scratch cleared his throat. "As I was saying, my friend informed me that you're heading back to Avery Falls. I'll provide you with all you need to get there. You can leave as early as today if you'd like."

I nodded. "Thanks, Coach. We will be leaving by this afternoon."

"Not a problem. A Jeep will be left in front of your home with all essentials."

We left the Mayor's office and who do I find waiting outside for me.

Stella.

"Logan, babe. Is it true? You're leaving?" She pouted.

"Yeah, Stella. I'm leaving and I won't be back."

"Take me with you." She said eagerly.

I sighed because I really didn't want to hurt her even if I didn't love her.

"No Stella. You and I, we're not it. I don't care for you the way you want me to." I placed a kiss on her forehead. "Goodbye Stella."

I walked away from her and all I heard was a angry scream from her. "Fine! Leave asshole! I'll find someone much hotter than you!"

That was the last time I was ever going to see Stella.
Or so I thought.

A couple of hours later, Devin and I had begun driving through the highway. Three hours in, we still had a long way to go. It was going to take almost a day to reach Avery Falls.

"So?" Dev begun to say. "What's the plan when we get there? I'm sure you're just not gonna waltz in there like you haven't been gone for ten years."

I looked at Devin for a few seconds before looking back at the road. "We're going to look for Amira."

"How do we even find her?" Devin asked, intrigued.

"I don't think we'll have to worry about that. Something tells me she'll find us."

"Okay. Whatever you say, man."

We continued driving for hours with Devin eventually taking the wheel. It was getting late so we decided to stop at a motel for the night. We would reach Avery Falls by the next afternoon.

It must had been the middle of the night as I looked over and saw Devin sleeping on the other bed. I couldn't seem to go back to sleep so I got up from bed, put on a white tee and slipped on my sneakers. I stepped out the motel room to grab a water bottle from the vending machine outside.

I got to the vending machine that was a few feet away from the room. As I put the coins in the vending machine, I saw movement through my peripheral vision. I sniffed the air trying to catch someone's scent, but there was no scent.

I pressed the button on the machine and grabbed the water bottle once it fell. I started to make my way back to the room, but I still got the sense that someone was out there watching. I decided not to head straight to the room, but instead I turned the corner and snuck into a gap between the walls of the motel building.

I held my breath and waited to see if someone passed by. As soon as that thought hit, I watched as a hooded figure pass, taking slow meticulous steps. I already knew who it was, I've already memorized the silhouette of her body.

I waited for the right moment to sneak up from behind her. As soon as I saw the opening, I put one arm around her waist and the other arm around her neck. She let out a gasp from my actions.

"Didn't someone ever teach you it's not a good idea to follow a Werewolf?" I said it as a warning to teach her a lesson on sneak attacks.

Then she grabbed my arm with both her hands and flipped me over her shoulder onto my back. She held my arm and put her foot against my neck.

"It is when you can do that." She said with a bored tone and a fake smile.

"Lesson learned." I chuckled lowly not expecting this from her. She removed her foot off me and let go of my arm.

"This isn't a game." She glared those beautiful golden eyes of hers at me. I stood on the floor like an idiot staring at her, mesmerized. She really was beautiful, with dark silk hair that reached her neck and plumped red lips. My trance was interrupted once she spoke again.

"We must hurry!" She whisper shouted. "Vampires are coming to attack you any minutes now!"

I quickly got off the floor and we started running back to the room to wake up Devin and get out of here before those blood suckers got there. I pushed open the door and there were two Vampires already inside surrounding a sleeping Devin.

Fuck, he's a deep sleeper.

"Devin!" I yelled and he instantly woke up.

I shifted into wolf form and used my front paws to knock down the closest Vampire to me. The vamp was quick, dodging my slashes.

I took a quick glance at Devin, he hadn't shifted. He struggled to get the vamp off of him as the Vamp tried to bite at his neck.

The Vamp I was fighting went for an attack and I grabbed his arm with my strong muzzle. I bit the arm right off and blood gushed out. The Vamp didn't seem to care that it no longer had an arm as it crazily tried to attack me again. Out of nowhere, a black orb shot pass me and onto the Vamp's chest.

I stood there shocked as the Vamp convulsed and exploded to ashes. What the fuck was that?

I turned to where the orb came from and saw Amira with one arm stretched out in front of her. I shifted back from my wolf form as Devin managed to pin the Vamp down. I searched for something to stab the Vamp with, but found nothing.

Amira stealthily moved near us and put her hand on the Vamp's head. We watched as black smoke came from her hand, surrounding the Vamp, and like the other Vamp before, he convulsed and exploded into ashes.
