Sarah Julia Black, that's who I am.
Granddad watched me with pierced eyes. I came downstairs took my mom’s hands.
‘What are you doing?’ She asks me.
’Letting you have your dream, go! I’ll be fine.′ I reassured her but she shook her head, her eyes are watering.
’No, you are my dream. I’m not going anywhere without you. Why are you doing this?′ I knew this was a problem for her so instead of pushing her to go, I just nodded.
‘Can somebody tell me what the hell is going on?’ He said angrily. He looked at me and then again at mom, he was trying to make a connection, something logical but whatever he was thinking we had to lie. I had to lie...
’It doesn’t concern you sir,′ he shook his head. It hurt that I had to lie to my own granddad about who I am, but I knew that he would never take mom back to the pack if he knew.
Her happiness was more to me, it was the least I could do after everything she sacrificed.
‘I’m sorry but I just want what’s best for her.’ I said pointing at mom, he looked at me confused.
But before he could say anything, I said: ’Look, I know what you are thinking but you are wrong.′ They both looked at me, my mom waiting for what I was going to say.
But I don’t want my mom to die or to lose me. It would kill her and me as well if we would be without each other, so I had to chose my words carefully.
’Hi,′ I said while holding my hand out, he took my hand and shook it, ’Sarah Julia Black, that’s who I am.′
He looked shocked and confused. ’WHAT?!′ He was turning red, gripping my hand tight it hurted. I looked at his other hand, it went up ready to hit me, but my mom pushed me behind her.
’No!′ she yelled. ′ You get your hands off my daughter!′
‘Daughter? A disgrace you mean! Are you mated? Is there a man in this house? How could you!’ Now I was the one that was fuming. I came from behind my mom and started pointing at him.
’How dare you call me a disgrace and my mom a whore. I thought you would listen to her instead of yelling and jumping to the wrong conclusions. How old fashioned can you be?′ Mom looked worried while I said this, she mouthed at me what are you doing....? I just nodded.
‘Just tell me already. I’m not a man of patience.’ I laughed. ‘Believe me, I know.’ He looked weird at me.
’Don’t worry mom told me about everything.′ He looked shocked, yes I knew how he disciplined his omega’s, his daughter even his own freaking wife, but I was still committed to give him a chance. He just stood there waiting for me to go one.
‘Okay, can you please go out of the doorway and come sit in the living room?’ I asked, he looked around him and chuckled.
We went to the living room, it was just a small living room with some pictures and paintings but it’s really plain and we love it like that.
’Why don’t I see you in any of these pictures?′ he asked me.
’Because we knew you wouldn’t understand.′ Mom looked down, ashamed in believing the worst.
’Please tell me Sarah, who are you and why are you calling my Olivia ‘mom’? I sighed.
’Because she is my mom.′ I explained, he looked furious but before he could explode I pointed at him and smiled.
’I was adopted.′ They both looked at me with this confused look. Confused is not a correct word, it was more oblivious, shocked not wanting to believe that this was happening.
’What?′ I asked like it was the most normal thing in the world.
’You never thought of werewolfs giving up there kids? Unexpected pregnancies are a thing in both worlds, sir.′ He looked at me still confused, but he stayed quiet. I took the silence as my que to continue.
’I was about 6 months old when I came here or better left here, somebody left me on her doorstep but when she picked me up, she smelled that I was not just a human. I’m a werewolf. So she didn’t want to call Social Services. What do you think would’ve happened to a werewolf girl in the foster system? What would’ve happen if I lost control of my wolf and shifted in front of everybody?′ I laughed and they both smiled at me, wolfs knew exactly what I meant. Shifting uncontrollably was very dangerous definitely for humans that were near that shifting wolf, they could die.
‘My mom knew that it would be bad. The werewolf society had to be protected and she also wanted to protect me. Look, I don’t know who my birthparents are and I don’t care. I carry the name Black with pride just as I’m proud to call her my mom. Just because nobody knows about this means you have to expect the worst.’ He looked at his daughter, I was waiting until he said anything I didn’t care what he said, just something, anything... I looked at mom but she just smiled, we knew that with this story she couldn’t get sued or prosecuted and it was a believable story.
’Okay, what if I say that I believe you. I’m not saying that I do,′ he said putting his hands on his thighs.
‘But how would we do this in the pack house? It’s almost unknown, giving your pup up for adoption willingly.’ He was flustered and I started to panic.I didn’t know how to explain this because I’ve never been in a pack house and it was all a lie....
Mom sighed, ’Look father, she’s telling the truth. This was the main reason I kept her hidden but there is one thing she doesn’t know.′ mom looked at me and smiled, I didn’t know what she was doing but I trust her.
So I nodded saying she could go on for my granddad it had to look like I was telling her that I was ready to hear my entire story.
‘I know who left her at my doorstep.’
Granddad looked at her signing that she had to continue while sitting back, putting his head up giving mom his full attention while crossing his legs.
’It was a young wolf, I guess around 15 and she needed help. She told me about her situation, she was raped by her neighbor and ran away when she found out about the pregnancy. You know how people think about having a pup with somebody else then your mate.′ He nodded and it explained to me why he reacted the way he did earlier.
How to make it dramatic, I thought but it is very believable, rape was just as bad in the human world as in the werewolf community if not worse and there were very big sentences on this matter.
’Look, I love her and I’m not going without her. I’m her mom, she is a Black and that’s that. It doesn’t matter where she comes from, but if you really want to explain just tell to the “old schooled” wolfs what happened than they would understand. Hell they would be proud to call me your daughter or the Alpha’s daughter.′ He nodded.
’So...′ he started.
’Sarah, how old are you, my dear?′ I looked at the clock, it was just 12 p.m., mom looked at it too.
’Happy birthday, sweetie.′ she said and hugged me, my birthday was always a big day for us. We would celebrate it as big as we could with just the two of us. Just because we didn’t go outside doesn’t mean we didn’t celebrate it.
’I’m 18 sir, since like now.′ I smiled while pointing at the clock.
’Happy birthday and please call me Granddad.′ I smiled at him. Just when I wanted to hug my granddad for the first time, someone knocked on the door. Mom and I were a little bit scared because who could that be at this hour?
’Who’s there?′ I asked.
’Oh it’s my beta’s son. He’s here to pick me up, I didn’t think...well I didn’t foresee this...′
Mom grimaced at that.
’Tom had a son?′ she asked while stepping towards the door.
Granddad nodded, ’He already had one but I guess you forgot,′ I stood up to welcome our guest and when she opened the door. I was shocked because there he was a handsome, muscular man. I guess around 24, he had brown hair with these grey-blueish eyes that could make you melt.
I felt myself getting aroused for a moment and it felt weird. I never had that feeling, but Goddess I didn’t mind it because he is beautiful.
He looked directly at me. My wolf started going nuts in my head
What are you doing, Diana? I asked but she just answered ‘mate’.
He smiled at me, ’Mine!′
