Chapter 4

I sighed and enter the house before I was greeted by Rachel, "Hey, you made it!", she laughed while hugging me.

I just smiled politely before she guide me inside the house. I sighed and she introduced me to her friends, and I have no idea who these people are. These people aren't even from our school, these are all strangers.

I shook my head out of distractions before I grab a bottle of beer and just walk away from the crowd. I sighed and head outside to the backyard, I heard Rachel are calling after me but I ignore her and jut walk towards the trees. And I heard multiple footsteps are following me.

"Audrey!", Rachel's voice suddenly changed and I finally ran and keep running without looking back until I threw that bottle of beer behind me and I think it hit her.

I keep on running before I hid behind a tree. I took a deep breath and steady myself before I heard a low growl from behind me. I didn't say anything before I start running again.

A few minutes later, I trip over a tree and the thing pin me hard on the ground. I screamed in pain before it growled at me and when it was about to attack me, I close my eyes but it was thrown away from me. I was surprised when I saw two giant wolves fighting in front of me.

One with black fur and red eyes, and the other is white with pure blue eyes. I watched them fight and I took a step back before I fell again, the black wolf was running towards me but another wolf blocked it before the one gets to me. I stood up before I quickly ran and I keep running for a few minutes before I fell and all I can hear was a howl before I can't hear anything else.

I held my head and groaned in pain. I sigh before I slowly open my eyes just to meet a white furniture around me. I'm still laying on my back before I look to my right and find someone standing there. His posture reminds me of someone, he wear a pair of sweatpants and a hoodie. I look at myself and I'm wearing a large hoodie and a pair of shorts, at least I'm not fully naked.

I sat up and the person turned around. I sat there in shock before he slid the door to the side and came into the room. He sighed, "Hey", he greeted.

I stayed quiet for a few minutes before I spoke, "Hi", that's all I can managed to say.

He sat down on the bed in front of me before his hand reached out towards my head and held where I was hurt. I flinched a bit and he pulled his hand away before touching it gently, "Sorry, I didn't know it will be that hurt", he said.

I shook my head, "It's fine", I said.

He pulled his hand away and looked at me, "I know you have many questions in your head", he said and make himself comfortable in front of me.

I shook my head, "I don't know where to start", I said.

He shrug, " I have lots of time", he said.

I sighed, "Where am I?", I asked.

"At my parents' cabin, which is now belongs to me and you. We'll get to that later. Anything else?", he asked.

I shrug, "Where is it?", I asked again.

"Somewhere in this world", he said simply.

"Any more specific?"

"I can't tell you, I'm sorry"


He looked at me dead in the eyes before he answered, "You might run from me. Run from the truth"

I'm still on my bed because I don't know what to do. Alex left a few hours ago and she's left alone in the room. I sighed and I stood up before walking towards the bathroom and washed my face.

I gasp when I saw my hair turned to black, it was medium-brown. I washed my face again and saw my eyes turned a little blue from dark brown. I shook my head and head out of the room and almost screamed when I saw a lady with a tray there.

"Hi. I'm just putting the clothes here", she said as she puts the tray down on the bed. I was confused when she put the clothes on the tray and I looked back at her.

I smiled, "Hello", I greeted back before putting my hand out.

But instead of shaking my hand back she gave me a little bow before leaving the room. I pull my hand back before I sighed and look at the clothes she gave me. I shook my head and put the clothes down before the door opened.

I look over towards the door and Alex came into the room. He shook his head, "What's wrong?", he asked a little panicked.

I shook my head, "Nothing. It's just... The dress isn't...-"

"Your liking?", he asked.

I looked over to him and shook my head, "No. It's not comfy for me to wear", I said.

"What do you want to wear?", He asked.

I shrug, "Just a regular shirt, is that okay? Or... A hoodie?", I asked. He gave me a fast nod before he walks over to the dresser and took out a black T-shirt and he closed it back before giving it to me. I accept it and I spoke, "Can I use shirts and hoodies in the future?", I asked.

He shrug, "I'll try. But, there will be time when you have to wear those dress, you know?", he said as he stroke my hair gently.

I didn't say anything before he left me alone to change. I sighed and took the hoodie off and wear his large T-shirt, it shows a little of my cleavage. I sighed and head out of my room before I opened the door and find Alex is standing there waiting for me. Here
