Chapter 10

Liza’s POV:

Tears pooled in my eyes when the shock subsided. I knew she looked familiar, but I would have never guessed that she was my mom!

“I’ve missed you so much.” She whispered as she sat down on the edge of my bed.

I was really happy that she was here and alive. But if she was alive why was I adopted and told my parents were dead?

“Why did you leave me?” I asked, my tone sharper than I anticipated.

She flinched but answered. “Your father and I didn’t want you to be part of the werewolf world.”

“H-how do you know about werewolves?”

" I’m a werewolf and so was your father. We were mates.”

“What?”

Holy crap! My parents are werewolves!

I was still taking in all this information when my mom said something that shocked me even more.

“We’re not the only ones that are werewolves. You are too.”

No.

“B-b-but I can’t. I-I’ve never shifted. A-and I would have known. Right?”

“Unlike most werewolves you didn’t shift for the first time on our 14th birthday.”

That explained a lot. But doesn’t that mean that I’m not a werewolf?

“That means I’m not a werewolf?” I voiced my thoughts, but it sounded more like a question.

“You are, and you might be able to shift. You just haven’t got angry enough.” She said and shrugged.

This is crazy! First I find out that my mom is still alive, then I find out I’m a freaking werewolf that can’t even shift!

“Well I should go.” My mom said and got up to leave.

“Don’t leave me again.” I begged. I didn’t want to lose her. I just got her back.

“I won’t honey, I’m here now.” She whispered and kissed me on the forehead before leaving.

When the door shut behind her I couldn’t keep the tears away. I cried for losing her, and for getting her back.

I cried for everything that upset me in my whole life.

About ten minuets later Asher walked in. He took one look at me and rushed to my bedside.

“Baby please don’t cry.” He begged.

That just made me cry harder. I didn’t deserve him. He was so sweet and caring.

He leaned down and whispered comforting words in my ear.

Just having him his close calmed me down. That must be a mate thing.

He climbed into bed beside me and slipped under the covers before wrapping his arms around me.

“You should get some rest.” He suggested.

I nodded and closed my eyes.


I woke up before the alarm on Friday morning.

One more day until the weekend. Thank god!

I carefully slipped out of bed without waking Ash, and walked into the bathroom.

I hopped in the shower and took some time to think things through.

I’m a werewolf. My parents are werewolves. My mom is alive. Asher and I are mates. I finally escaped my terrible life with Jason and Madison.

My life was so different now.

I wonder if I could shift.

How could I get mad enough to shift? I’ve been through so much but I still can’t get mad enough to shift.

I shook my head to rid all werwolf thoughts and realized I’ve been in the shower for a long time,so I shut off the water and got out.

After getting dressed in a pair of black leggings, a grey jumper and black and white converse, I walked out of the bathroom and into a wall.

Or at least I thought it was a wall until I felt tingles all over.

I didn’t have to look up to know I bumped into Asher.

“You’re up early.” He muttered.

I looked up into his eyes and saw that they were filled with amusement.

My eyes drifted down to his bare chest.

I could really see his muscles now.

He has a six pack! Boy I’m lucky!

“Like what you see?”

“If you haven’t already noticed, yeah, I do like what I see. And it’s all mine.” I said boldly.

Wait. Did I really just say that?

I wanted to slap myself, but I held back and settled for blushing.

When I finally got the courage to look at him I saw that he wasn’t smirking and he didn’t have any trace of amusement on his face.

Instead his eyes were warm and loving and his face was lit up like a Christmas tree.

“As much as I would like to stand here and look at you all day, I need to get ready for school.” He softly said.

I moved out of his way and smiled.

“I’ll be downstairs.” I told him, before walking away.


It was after school and I was in the parking lot waiting for Ash.

He always took so long at his locker!

Suddenly someone roughly grabbed my waist from behind and put a cloth to my mouth.

What the-

I felt really tired and dizzy.

I tried to fight it but I couldn’t, and I fell unconscious in the person’s arms.
