After a long exhausting run home, we finally made it home. My parents were out searching for me, we ran across my dad’s wolf who escorted us home. I knew the Alpha must have contacted them. Hopefully, he told them everything that had happened. Once we made it to the back yard my wolf let me shift back. Once I did, I fell to the ground and began sobbing. All of our best and worst memories happened here. I was alone, in our home. My dad picked me up and carried me to my room. He just kept giving me a gentle loving “shhh, it’s going to be ok Kira. I got you.” His words did little to comfort me. My wolf even chimed in and told me to calm down. She said I was going to pass out and we had to protect ourselves. But I was too far gone. My dad placed me in my bed, and I grabbed the blanket which successfully covered me, and I began to feel lightheaded. My dad was grabbing my head trying to get me to focus my breath, but I couldn’t. Everything hurt. Then everything went black.
I woke up confused and still in pain and shock. But I gathered enough strength to call for my mom. She came rushing in,
“Kira omg, we were so worried. How are you sweetie?”
“I don’t want to talk about it, mom, but do you know where my cell phone is?”
“The alpha had his Beta bring over your things. I think it will probably be in there. I hope you don’t mind but the Alpha also had the doctor come and I let them take a blood sample from you.”
I looked down at my arm to see the perfectly placed bandage in the crook of my arm.
“It’s fine, I don’t care anymore. I just want my phone.”
“Alright sweety, I’m having your father look now. But you should know, I have tried to contact Charlie with no luck.”
Tears began to pool in my eyes again. I didn’t try to hold them back. My mom bought me some clothes which I happily put on. After I did my mom embarrassed me in a hug in which I happily accepted. It felt good to be embraced by someone I loved. While I was crying into my mom’s shoulders my dad came in with my phone. I broke from my mom’s grasp and wiped away my tears so I could actually look at the phone. My mom was right, nothing from Charlie. But I did see the notification that today at two I was to meet with Luke. Augh. Just what I needed. I could just not go. I mean Charlie wasn’t even with me. I looked at the time and saw it was nearing 1pm. Augh, I just can’t be rude like that. I will go and just tell the bear that I didn’t need his help anymore. That Charlie can transfer into both and that’s that. Say my goodbye’s and forget he even exists.
“Mom, dad, I appreciate everything, but I have to go out for a little bit. I need to clear my head and try and make sense of all of this.” They both looked at me like I grew two heads.
“Are you sure Kira? It wouldn’t kill you to spend the day in bed. After all the Doctor did take quite a bit of blood from you.”
“Wait what? Why?”
“He said they never did the initial exam while you were there, and the Alpha didn’t want to miss the opportunity to test you.” I mean, that is why you went their sweetie.”
“Yes, I remember.” I more than grumbled in my response. I was bitter about ever going there. If I had said no, then I would still have Charlie.
“Alright well, I will be back then. I promise.”
After some more protest I put my coat on and slipped out the front door. I decided to walk. I needed the time to prepare myself to be around Luke. I was praying all those weird feelings were gone. I love Charlie and no one will come in the way of that. I was already halfway to the park and it was only 1:30 I was making better time than I had thought. I should have grabbed something to eat. I was feeling lightheaded and my body felt exhausted from all the crying. Augh this was a terrible idea. Just like most of my ideas in life. If I would have known my life would be this complicated, I would have appreciated my simpler life more. First mated wolf in a really fucking long time. Mated to my brother, well not really but still. And now I am the chosen wolf because of a stupid mark? Oh, and my mate up and left me because he is part bear. Yeah... I miss the simpler times. Thinking about Charlie burned me from the inside out. I was still upset but I think I gave my mom the last of my viable tears. I am now an abandoned she-wolf who has dried up.
I passed the park and into the woods, I started to feel nervous and I could feel my stomach began to flip flop. But my constant pain drowned it out almost completely. As I neared the place where I had met Luke twice, I sat down on a fallen tree and tried to clear my head. I did not know how I was going to fix this mess, but I was still hopeful of some sort of a happy ending. As I sat there, I peeked at my phone and it was only 1:45 so I decided to text Julie.
“Hey just checking in. I have not asked about Christmas, but I don’t think that it is the best time. Charlie ran away and shit is hitting the fan over here girl. I have a lot to fill you in on. Call me tomorrow?”
It took a few minutes, but I finally heard my phone ping.
“can’t wait to catch up, talk soon.”
Ok, well that was weird. Julie is usually a chatter box and for her to have little to nothing to say was just freaky. But maybe she was busy. I was about to put my phone away when I decided to send Charlie A text. I wasn’t even sure if he had his phone, but he must have as my parents didn’t say they found it.
“Charlie, I don’t even know where to start. What you did was cruel and awful. You left us. How could you? All because you couldn’t get past the fact that you’re a bear. You said you love me, but I can tell you that a person who says those words, would never be able to just up and leave, especially the coward’s way. I hope one day you can explain it to my face. I really hope your safe and even though I am pissed as all hell at you, I still love you. I always will. You are not only my fated mate, but my chosen as well. I will always choose you. Be well Charlie, please don’t stay silent forever.
I didn’t know what I hoped to accomplish but I hope he would at least read it and know if he should choose to come home, he would be welcome. He would have a lot of trust to rebuild though.
