It was so peaceful today. The birds chirping is getting quieter as they all prepared for a good night's sleep. The sun setting sending orange and red rays which illuminated on the clear water, swaying gently to the breeze.
It was perfect. Just like my life. No problems, no worries, yet no love. I felt empty from the inside. All the people that I met wished I would accept to go on a date with them, only one. But something inside me made me hold back. I didn't think I could love someone, I didn't feel I could.
My parents always been pushy and wanted me to find anyone to be with so I won't be alone forever. They were afraid they would leave me and leave the world without making sure I was safe with the love of my life and our kids running and giggling and screaming happily around us.
I never understood them. They knew I hated their pushy ways, but they did it anyway.
I only came here to clear my mind off of things. Not only they were the reason for my irritation, but also my business. I owned a jewelry shop. People won't come in and buy anything after what they saw. Not only to my shop but the whole place.
A dead body. I couldn't believe when the police informed me they founded infront of my shop. They asked me if I knew the body. But when I went to see their face I couldn't recognize them.
Their face was distorted, as if they were attacked by some kind of beast, claws scarred all his face. I couldn't take in that someone was attacked by this brutal way. My heart shattered for them.
But all of this wasn't something to worry about that much. Kate, my best friend and my roommate, always told me this since the incident. So still my life is perfect, I shouldn't ruin it.
The Sun was all the way down, swallowed by the Earth to light up another part if its world.
I was lost in my own pool of thoughts to even get back home during daylight. It's late now to get back home. I couldn't see through the silent darkness.
I stood up from the bench I was sitting on. Looking around me in hope I could find my way or the light to guide me.
I don't know how I got here. I was running this afternoon and I found this magical place.
I was so drawn to it. I couldn't resist it's peacefulness. I wanted the time to stop so I could enjoy the scenery a little more. But all the once chirping birds, now in deep sleep and all that was left was piercing silence.
I was in the middle of the thick forest that I always avoid. I don't know why I came here. Why now? What drawn me that much to this place, anyway?
Then my phone vibrated in my pocket. I looked at it, to find it died. Urgh, great now I can't even use it. I felt lost and scared, but I couldn't let my emotions overtake, I had to think it through this problem.
I looked around me, trying to figure out the way back. I heard a branch snapping, I glanced it's way, hesitant about looking it's way. I wasn't sure if I should. I knew I won't like what I'll see, but I did anyway.
A shiver ran down my spine as I turned around. I couldn't believe my eyes. What is that? I looked it in the eyes and I saw emotions in them as if it wanted to take me in its arms and comfort me.
A voice rang in my head. A voice that I never heard. As if someone was talking in my head.
I gulped, taking a step back. But then the thing came out of the woods. Now I could see its figure. It was a freaking wolf. A huge one, way more huge than normal. But, I felt the urge to run towards it and embrace it. I was confused. I should be afraid and run for my life.
All of a sudden, I heard bones cracking . So loud in the silent night. I felt my knees buckling. I couldn't hold my weight anymore. So scared that this might be my end. Yet, I felt comfort somehow.
I looked down trying to gain my composure. I closed my eyes for a moment, in an attempt to slow down my racing heartbeats.
When I looked back up, I saw him. A warm smile on his lips. When I looked into his eyes, I felt lost in his blue pools that had a small fight with the silver color that tried to crawl in.
I somehow calmed down just by looking at his smile. My eyes went down to study him. But I quickly averted them and looked away. He was naked. A blush threatened to appear on my cheeks.
I heard him say. His voice was so deep and harsh, but I relaxed hearing it. I don't know why and how I found it so soothing.
Then I felt the adrenaline rush through me. My lips quivering and my knees weakened. I took a deep breath closing my eyes. I rushed to the bench where my backpack was laying and then took a large towel from it and threw it at him.
He took it and wrapped it around his abdomen. Then I heard a laugh coming out from him. I glared at him.
And then realization downed on me.
The wolf is gone. What was that sound of bones cracking? Whose bones that were cracking?
"Where is it?" I asked hesitantly.
"Where is what?"
"The wolf. It was right in your place I saw it."
"Then, you must have been seeing things."
"No, I'm sure I saw it"
A chuckle escaped his lips. I frowned at him. What was he laughing at. This is no time for laughing.
"Love, it was me"
"This no time for kidding" I said looking around me for any sign of the beast.
He furrowed his brows. "Why would I be kidding, it's my wolf"
I heard the voice again. But I shook my head. I looked back at him when I heard him say "My wolf, Love. I'm a werewolf"
"Prove it" I found myself saying. I knew he was joking and making fun of me. Werewolves are legendary creatures. Fiction stories about them were everywhere. But just as fiction books, nothing more.
"You want me to shift again?" He looked at me with disbelief.
I looked him in the eyes and nodded, challenging him.
"Okay. For you, my Love"
And then I looked in his eyes, pure silver. His bones and muscles started to tense. He throw me the towel and I saw hai coming out of his body. No, not hair. It was fur, a wolf's fur. My eyes widened and my knees weakened again at the scene in front of me. His bones cracking send shivers down my spine. Goosebumps forming. When the cracking stopped, I saw him, I saw it, the beast, looking at me, wagging it's tail.
I felt my blood sinking to my legs, unable to reach my mind. Black dots forming infront of me, blurring my vision. A chill in my body weakening me.
And with that I felt my body falling to the ground with a thud. And I got lost in an endless darkness.
Oh! Did I forget to tell you? Well, in case I did, my name is Daisy Clayton.
What do you think is going to happen? Will Daisy's life change after knowing that all her life she lived a lie? It's a FREAKING WEREWOLF. I don't think it will be easy. And what will the guy do with her unconscious body?
