"Ryan, don't!" I cried.
A scream built up in my chest but it was knocked out of me. I
pulled myself up from the ground, desperately gasping for air. I
looked up breathlessly, at the giant wolf in front of me.
He tackled me to the floor winding me. My teeth sank into my
tongue and I choked and coughed as blood pooled in my mouth.
Sharp teeth grabbed my arm and flung me like a rag doll. I hit
the ground hard and cried with pain.
"Ryan please calm down!"
The giant wolf growled, baring jagged teeth. I looked into the
wolf's dark eyes. It wasn't Ryan. It was a monster. He couldn't
think like himself now. He could only think like a wolf.
I pulled myself to my feet and ran. I could sense the more
superior threat pursuing me. I could feel my arm bleeding out and
my head spinning. I screamed as agonising pain ripped through my
back and he pushed me to the ground. Claws ripped down my spine
and I went limp. I lied on the ground helplessly.
"Kyle, help me!"
What was I thinking? I couldn't outrun a wolf. All I could hope
was that something would distract him. He was thinking like a
wolf now, and he wasn't about to remember who I was and realise
what he was doing. Not until something else happened. Not until
he heard something, maybe one of the pack. But no one was coming.
I screamed and screamed until my throat hurt. My screaming
couldn't pierce his mind. He continued to sink his teeth into me
and throw me to the floor. It took me a few seconds before I
found that I couldn't scream anymore.
"Kyle where are you? Cameron! Tobias, are you-! Kyle, please-" I
Why had I sent him away? Why did I insist on being independent
and finding Kyle on my own when Cameron would have been more than
willing to take me? Why had Tobias let Ryan go when he was this
Of course, he hadn't reckoned on me being unprotected.
The entire world was dimming as the pain ebbed away. I knew I was
dying at the hands of someone I'd trusted, and I could only blame
myself. I'm probably the only one who truly trusted him and here
I was, dying. If I died Kyle would follow, I knew that for sure.
I didn't even have to think twice about that, imprint makes you
so sure. We couldn't lose each other after fighting against
Ryan's pain for so long.
It wasn't so bad now... I thought. No more
I always told Kyle everything about us was right and we could
only wait. It was the world that had to adjust to us, we were
perfect and unchangeable. We were made for each other.
I really don't think I feel anything.
I never listened when Kyle said nothing would change as long as
Ryan was watching. I'd always been too scared to take everyone's
advice and just run. Cameron told us to run away but I'd always
Is this what dying feels like? It's almost painless.
Because I couldn't outrun the wolves could I? I couldn't even
catch up. You've just got to let your werewolf carry you.
My thoughts of being safe in Kyle's arms disappeared as
everything went black.
