Introducing the riverside..
Sitting by the riverside has been my favorite pastime since before I could even remember. When my brother Julian and his buddies would irritate and taunt me, my resolve to the situation would be to find solace in the sound of running water.
“Hello?” My eyes dart to the tree lined to see if anyone is near. I’ve jumped up to my feet and slowly twirling in a circle to eye my surroundings.
“Julian it’s not funny!”
Leaves and branches moving.
My breathing becomes heavy. I can feel an asthma attack coming. I feel like I’m spinning. When I fall to my hands and knees that’s when I see it. Those two eyes.
“Little girls shouldn’t be out in the middle of the woods, especially near a river.” A deep masculine voice says. Without a doubt that the voice belongs to those grey eyes.
Without taking any chances I make a break for it and run. Run before my breathing becomes worse. Run to find quiet to fathom what just happened. Running back to our home. The alphas post.
“Marjorie! Your not supposed to be in the woods! Come wash up and meet your father in his office.” Mother yells into the woods. I can hear her echo, letting me know she isn’t too far. Hopefully I won’t get another lecture from alpha to play nice with my brothers and they’re friends. Such assholes they are to always play victim.
I make my way to the clearing ahead. No one in sight thankfully. Making my way to the back door I slip in hoping no one will see me. As I turn around from closing the slider, mother stands before me.
“Where have you been?” She asks as she rests he hands on the opposite arms after crossing them.
“I was just clearing my head mom.” I say as I walk away into the hallway. What I was hoping was that she wasn’t going to follow me. Whelp. I was wrong.
“Alpha wants to speak with you now. Go change and make yourself presentable.” She states as she holds onto the railing of the stairs and watches me climb them. I wave my hand back to her in defeat as I enter my room. Shutting it and locking it, I look at myself in the mirror on the back of the door. Look presentable?
I’m wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Something simple. Maybe she means something girly? Quickly switching out my basic white t-shirt for a leopard print one, I make my way out of my room, down the stairs and out the front door. I finally exhale the breath I’ve been holding and try to center myself.
After making my way to the municipal offices for the pack, I enter the building and walk towards alphas office. I feel like all eyes are on me and as I pan the room, I notice all eyes are really on me. Is there something on my face?
