Author's Note: The next chapter isn't going to be so pretty.
Something bad is going to happen to Adrianne. I didn't excatly
plan for this part when I first wrote the story but as the story
progressed........I got a whole new plan for it. Thanx for
reading this story guys. Not sure how many chapters there are
going to be. But enjoy this.
Chapter 8: It's Todd's world
"What?" I asked. "A hybrid. A werewolf/vampire hybrid." The
vampire said. "A what?" I was beyond confused and scared to
death. "You need to stay away from this guy." I ran my fingers
through my hair. I didn't know rather or not I should tell Eric
and the rest of the wolf pack.
Todd was a vampire and a werewolf.
How the hell was that even possible? "You need to get as far away
from him as possible. Do you understand?"
"Yeah. Yeah I do but what if he doesn't let me leave?"
"Then I don't know what to tell you because it's hardly my
"But still. I mean if he's a hybrid, wouldn't he have control
over both vampires and wolves?" He thought for a second. "You're
rather smart for a dog." He said as he began to pace.
"What is this guy's name?" He asked.
"Todd King." I answered. His eyes grew wide. It looked like he
was about to cry for a second. "Todd?" He asked. I nodded. He had
a look on his face as if he was about to pass out but that wasn't
possible for vampires. "Do you know him?" I asked.
He looked like he was in pain. "Todd........King is my......dad."
"What?" I asked.
"That fucker is my dad." He growled. I never saw someone so
"Wait, then why aren't you part.....werewolf?" He shrugged. "I
don't know. I just never gotten the trait and neither has my
sister or brother."
"So what do we do?" I asked. He thought for a second.
"Well...maybe if he serves his purpose here then he'll leave. I
doubt if your pack and my coven can kill him. I heard that
werepire hybrids are more powerful than at least forty wolves and
fifty vamps put together."
"Werepire?" I asked.
"Ignore the name and be serious. This is a serious matter."
"I know but I just don't know what to do." The vampire sighed and
leaned against a tree. "Well should I pretend like I don't know
anything until we know what to do?" I asked. The vampire slowly
"Or you can get the hell out of there. But either way is the
smartest. Just don't piss him off." I nodded. "I won't."
He looked down to the ground. "What exactly does he want?" He
asked to himself. Yeah. What did Todd want from my wolf pack? Or
was it me that he wanted something from? Or Lana?
"Okay, so you should meet me back here tomorrow night around
midnight. We'll form a plan but make sure until then that you
don't know shit about what he is." I nodded.
"Okay." I said. He nodded once. "By the way, My name is Aeryn."
"Adrianne." I said. He smiled slightly but in a way it was fake.
He didn't like working side by side with a werewolf and I felt
the same but Todd is a danger to both wolves and vampires.
"I'll be here around midnight." I said. Aeryn nodded once. I
turned and instantly phased back not giving a shit if I tore my
clothing. I can't think about it. Todd can read my thoughts. I
have to think about anything but that. As I ran through the trees
with fast speed, I got back to the main pack area where everyone
was acting tense. My eyebrows pulled together. What was going on?
My mother came over to me along with Eric.
Eric looked angry. Almost like he was ready to shift but trying
his hardest to keep the process down.
"What's going on?" I asked. My mother bit her lip. I looked to
Eric he looked heated. "Tell me." I whispered.
"Todd is alpha of the pack now." He said. My eyes grew wide with
fear. "What?!" I asked. Eric nodded. Why would Lana give up her
title for Tod?
'He probably charmed her and convinced her to let him
have her title.' Eric said telepathically. I shook
my head. That explanation isn't good enough. I walked pass Eric
and my mother and tried to sniff out Lana's scent. When I smelled
the familiar scent of coconuts and vanilla, I followed it.
I spotted Lana sitting on a chair watching the wolf pack. She
didn't look angry, she looked........high. "Lana?" I asked. She
slowly looked up at me. "How could you give a postion like that
up? And for a guy you barely know?"
"I love Todd." She said standing up face to face with me."
"How? You don't even know him! He could easily be evil!" I
"Can I?" Said a deep voice. I looked over to see him coming out
from behind a tree. "It's rude to make assumptions about someone
before you know everything them, Dri." He smiled. I swallowed. My
throat felt dry and I felt nervous.
"I wasn't making assumptions. I was just saying......"
"Saying what exactly?" He asked. I bit my lip afraid to say
"Well, if you have nothing to say, I suggest you keep your mouth
shut." He said as he forced Lana out of her seat and they
disapeared into her small house.
"What was that about?" Eric asked as he came near me. I looked at
him in disbelief. "You know you heard the conversation even from
all the way over there." He sighed and placed an arm around my
waist. "I have to talk to you later, not here." I said. He nodded
and kissed my forehead before walking away. I looked after him
for a second before turning my head back to Lana's cottage. What
the hell was happening?
It was two in the morning and I still haven't told Eric about
Todd. It was impossible. Because if he finds out everything, he's
going to charge in his family's house, try to fight Todd and Todd
just might end up killing him. I couldn't risk that.
Eric turned the shower off and I heard him step onto the tile
floor. I was sitting against the headboard of my bed and looked
at him as he came into the room with a towel wrapped around his
He dried himself off and threw the towel onto a chair and climbed
into bed with me. He began to kiss me and when he noticed I
wasn't kissing back, he pulled back and looked at me. "What's
wrong?" He asked. I closed my eyes and shook my head.
"'Nothing." I responded. He slightly smiled and began kissing me
again. I kissed him back this time to show him there was really
nothing wrong. He pulled me on top of him. He placed his hands on
my thighs and through my hair. I just stopped. I couldn't do
this. I got off of him and he looked at me, confused. "Did I do
something to piss you off?" He asked. I shook my head.
"No. I'm just tired." I said.
"You want me to hold you until you fall asleep? I have to get
back home soon anyway." I smiled at him. "Yeah, hold me until I
fall asleep." I said. He laid down and pulled me into his arms.
My head was under his chin and my leg was over his. I closed my
eys. I loved the feeling of his body against mine. "I love you."
He whispered. I smiled.
"I love you too." And I was off to sleep.
When I woke up, the sun was rising and I was in my bed alone. It
made kind of upset that I didn't wake up in Eric's arms but I got
over it and got up. I got on a pair of shorts and a tanktop and
went into the kitchen where Kevin was sitting eating a bag of
"Can you not eat all my food? You've got a house too."
"Yeah but mom is there with you-know-who and I am not going home
if they're doing what I think they're doing. Fuck that."
I rolled my eyes and got out the ingrediants to make a sandwich.
"Did you go out for a run this morning?" I asked putting a slice
of ham on the bread.
"Yeah, with that Todd guy. He's faster than any other wolf I've
ever seen." I turned to him. What was Todd up to? Was he trying
to get close to my brother only to manipulate him? Or am I being
"Kevin, you have to promise me that you'll stay away from him." I
said. His eyebrows pulled together. "Why?"
"Because I said so."
"Last time I checked, I was older."
"Only by two years. It's not that big of a difference. But
seriously, promise me Kevin." He sighed and nodded while looking
down at the floor. I turned back, made my sandwich and sat down
at the table across from Kevin.
After I was done eating, I took a shower, threw on a pair of
clothes and went outside. I heard yelling coming from Lana and
Eric's house so I ran as fast as I can. When I got there, Eric
and Todd were yelling at eachother. What the hell is going on? I
ran and placed myself between them too. "What's the problem?" I
asked. Eric looked mad. His eyes were that emerald color they
always turned when he was in wolf form. And Todd's eyes were
"Tell your boyfriend to get the fuck out of my face." Todd
growled. I looked to Eric who glared at Todd.
"He put his hands on my sister. I'm going to kill him." Eric
"I'd like to see you try you fucking prick."
"Stop it!" I yelled. They were both quiet and glaring at
eachother. Lana slowly walked towards us and I can see a mark on
her neck. I squinted my eyes. Don't think. Don't think. He can
hear my thoughts. I couldn't make assumptions about the marks.
Not yet any way. Without warning, Eric managed to reach over and
punch Todd in his jaw.
Todd touched his jaw and it was red but changed back to his
original skin color. "Okay. Okay. You'll see, Eric. I'm going to
hurt you in a way you never imagined." Todd said.
"Lana, come with me." He demanded as he walked away from us and
grabbed Lana's arm. She winced in pain as he pulled her away.
I looked back at Eric who's fist were balled up at his sides.
"He's doing something bad to her. Lana doesn't take shit from
anyone and now all of a sudden, this asshole took her postion and
is taking control over her."
"No. He has to go. I'm sick of him. I want him gone. Now."
"He will be.....soon. Just give it some time." Eric's eyes turned
back to normal. He let out a low sigh and he unballed his fist.
He took a deep breath.
"What do you mean give it some time?" He asked. I was hoping he
wouldn't ask that. I reached up and gave him a kiss to distract
him and luckily, it did.
I loved the taste of Adrianne's lips. It was sweet and
intoxicating. To me, she smelled like bananas, hazelnut, and
Whenever I kissed her, it blocked everything else out. All my
problems. Everything bad that's happened. It clouded my thoughts.
The bad ones and the good ones. I guess that's how it is when
you're with your mate. She curved her fingers into my hair and I
pulled her tight against my body. I needed to feel all of her.
She pulled away from me and looked down at the ground. "What's
wrong?" I asked. She shook her head. Something was wrong. I could
feel it. I had to get into her head.
'Don't think about it. Don't think about it. Don't
"What are you hiding from me, Adrianne?"
"Nothing." She said.
"Okay." I said nodding casually. She narrowed her eyes as she
looked at me. She knew what I was up to. I bent down and picked
her up and flung her over my shoulder.
"What are you doing?!" She screamed. I just smiled as I started
to run towards her cottage. She was hitting my back as I got the
Kevin wasn't here which surprised me. I closed the door and took
her to the bedroom. I closed the door and threw her onto the bed.
She looked up at me angry. I pinned her hands to the bed and
stared down at her. "What are you hiding from me?" I asked again.
She shook her head. "Nothing." She whispered. I leaned down and
began to nibble on her neck. She moaned and giggled at the same
I stopped and pulled back to look at her. "Tell me." I breathed.
She shook her head. I leaned back down and licked her bottom lip.
She tasted sweet like candy. We kissed each other agressively and
my grip on her wrists had tighten.
"Eric....fuck me." She said against my lips.
"Tell me what's been on your mind and I'll fuck you day and night
if you want." She frowned and turned her head to the right
looking out of the window.
"I can't." She whispered.
"Why can't you?" She looked back at me. "It's not important. Can
we just continue the whole foreplay thing?"
"If something is bothering you-"
"Nothing! Nothing is bothering me for the last damn time!Now can
you just shut up and fuck me?" It's amazing how quick she can
piss me off.
I got off of her. "Why don't you just go fuck yourself?" I asked.
I opened the door and slammed it shut.
I sighed and got up. I made Eric mad and him being mad made me
mad. I wanted to tell him so bad about everything. But Aeryn said
not to tell anyone. We had to keep it a secret until we find out
what we can do about it. If only we knew the reason Todd was here
in the first place.
When it was ten o clock, I was laying in my bed, naked. I missed
Eric and I wanted him here with me. To hold me. To make love to
me. To do anything but be mad at me. I soon fell asleep.
I was in the state where I was half sleep but half woke.
I had my eyes closed and was halfway through a dream but I was
also aware of the things around me. I slowly heard my door open.
My eyes opened. I was facing away from the door. I smiled. I knew
Eric would come back. When I turned, it was Todd standing there
by my bed completely naked smiling down at me. I gasped and sat
up. I was naked in my bed and Todd was naked right here next to
"Todd. What are you doing here?" I asked. My voice trembled. "I
want something from you, Adrianne. And I 'm going to get it." He
said. My eyes grew wide from fear.
"Wh-what do you want?" I asked.
His smile disappeared. "I want a child."
