I strapped the belt of my beige heels and stood up from the bed. Walking over to the floor length mirror, I stared at my reflection in the mirror.
The dress look unbelievably good. It fitted like a glove. I was not the one with a lot of curves but it made my hips and bust look good. It was a deep forest green. The dress reached down, above my ankles, sticking to my body like a second skin. There was a slit on the left side running all the way up to my mid thigh, showing off my leg. My legs were slightly toned due to the vigorous and daily training I undertook.
My eyes wavered over to the bags in the corner of the room. I planned on leaving immediately after the wedding.
Their was a slight knock on the door and I smelt my brother instantly.
Smelt him because I was a werewolf. A person who is half human and half wolf. To be a werewolf you need the genes in your blood. I live in a pack just like wolves do except we are very civilised and we don’t eat humans, that would be bizarre. My brother, Silas is the current Alpha, that means the leader or the first in command of the pack. The alpha role is usually hereditary unless someone challenges the alpha for the position. The second in command is the beta, who is William. Very rarely but yes packs do have a third in command, the Gamma. The alpha looks after the welfare of the pack members and deals with important affairs.
My dad was the previous alpha, my brother being the oldest became the next one. My brother is 24, still in search for his mate. I have another sister who is 21, leaving me the youngest. I turned 18 last week. Our mother, she died 8 years ago.
“You ready Scar? It’s almost time.“, I heard him call out.
“Yes, just a minute.“, I replied throwing a last glance at myself and walking over to my bedroom door.
I swung it open wide letting him enter inside, my eyes scanning over his outfit once. He was smartly clad in a black suit, his bow tie the same colour as my dress.
His eyes narrowed in on the bags in the corner of the room and he sighed out loudly.
He looked at me with a defeated sigh and stated, ” You haven’t changed your mind.”
“You know why, Silas.” I said staring into his grey eyes. I had always been jealous of him since he got mother’s beautiful eyes while I got dad’s brown eyes but on the bright side I got mother’s blonde hair.
“No I don’t! I don’t understand why you have to leave. What happened to mother wasn’t your fault! “, he exclaimed.
“Whose fault was it then? If it weren’t for me she would be here, with us. She would’ve been so happy for Sarah. You do remember that he is coming back for me! Maybe not today but definitely sometime in the future.
He has already managed to kill someone very close to me,Silas, I don’t plan on letting it happen again.”
“For the sake of moon goddess we can protect ourselves, Scar.“, He said desperately.
“Please Silas, it’s my last day here let’s not fight.“, I pleaded.
He nodded heavily and hugged me tightly.
“Where are you going?“, he asked in a heavy voice. My heart clenched in a twisted manner.
“I can’t tell you that.“, I told him not looking in his eyes.
“Will I at least see you again?”
“I really don’t know, Silas.”
The silence that followed was uncomfortable. I wanted him to say something, anything for that matter.
“Please say something.” I requested him.
“I still don’t think you should go but if that’s what you want I won’t stop you. Just please take care of yourself and don’t worry about dad and Sarah.”
I nodded at him with a sad smile on my face.
I agree we were more attached with each other than we were with Sarah but I have to let go of everyone now before I lose them forever.
“We should get going.“, he said hurriedly after looking at the wall clock behind me.
" I don’t think Sarah would want me there, Silas. She hates me and I wouldn’t want for her to be upset on her wedding day. I should have left last week, immediately the day after I turned 18.” I proclaimed.
“She doesn’t know you are leaving. Once she knows you’ll be gone forever she would regret not seeing you on her wedding day and I don’t want that.” He explained.
I nodded still hesitant.
“Alright then lead the way big brother.”
