Maisy

Too scared to move, Too scarred to breathe, Too stiffened to look. Maybe not... My eyes stayed glued on the distorted figure screeching in pain. Each agonizing cry reminding me of the first time I met Eric. I watched him shrink, his bones tearing out of his skin. He was changing...into something different, Something inhuman. I clamped my eyes shut, trying not to faint. Right now, It felt like the only sane thing to do.

His screams stopped. My trembling eyes flickered, catching the sight of ghost-white fur, a creature on all fours.

Eric... He... He shifted into a wolf! My subconscious took me down a memory lane. The white wolf... Eric! They weren't separate entities. They were one and the same. The jitters were literally leaving me dry.

My head felt blank, a heavy and light feeling altogether. I couldn't comprehend what I was seeing or maybe I didn't want to.

Was I actually seeing this?

The truth hit me hard. This was Conrad's big family secret. The Clarkes were werewolves.

In that frozen second between standoff between two beast, I see their eyes flick from me then back to each other in preparation for the big fight.

A wolf's face should be unreadable but the moment Eric or the white wolf rather peered in my direction, I could see things. The steel-blue eyes filled with worry, fear and for a split second, I didn't know what to feel.

Betrayal? Or the fact that he was willing to sacrifice his secret for me?

The beast charged first, gaining momentum and slamming into Eric who was only a diminution compared to it. His shrill cry shot into the sky seeing blood trickle off its claws, It was one of excitement. It was clearly winning this battle.

My gaze returned to Eric who was lying wasted on the earth, his white coat tainted with his own blood.

Even if I could barely move, I tried to help Eric.

"Eric, Get up."

I was frozen stiff buy my quivering lips could still make words. Eric, Still in wolf form seemed to get encouraged and he jumped to his feet. He back at th

l with the stupid spirit wolf prophecy."

Maybe. If Conrad had fallen before now, I would have probably rejoiced but something was different. The Conrad I knew wouldn't have come to my aid. He did something stupid for me and now, Now I just couldn't sit and watch him die.

Cursed Chimera venom!

What made it so bad was, I couldn't move him as the venom would spread faster. He would be dead before we reached the Quinn estate but I had another idea, One One enough to work.

"Maisy! Maisy!" I yelled to her repeatedly but she remained unresponsive.

When I got closer, I noticed she was trembling.

"Maisy?"

"Stay away from me!" She warned, Her eyes glazed, with fear.

Her hard exterior was only a coping mechanism to help her adjust to the unheard horrors she had seen in one night.

"I know you're scared Maisy but you have to listen to me. Conrad could die if you don't help him. I don't know if you can do it but you have to contact the spirits."

She stared blankly at me for a brief second before twisting her head around, jerking in fear. It was almost like she was seeing things that I couldn't.

Wait... Things I couldn't see.

I took hold of Maisy's with one hand and fixed my eyes on her. She wasn't looking at me but I had to try.

"Maisy, What's wrong?"

Slowly, Maisy tilted to face me.

"They want favors."
