By the time we got to the outskirts of Tristan area Bryce hadn’t opened his mouth and my skin felt like it was on fire, it wasn't normal.
“Are you alright?” Bryce whispered as I rubbed my arms, the flames didn’t go away.
“What is tonight?” I asked and he gave me a look that said I was stupid
“It is full ....moon....” he looked at me and then up at the darkening sky.
“Full moon? Already I thought I still had a couple of days!” I said and picked up my pace walking, but then stopped dead, in my tracks .... if we went onto Tristan's land he would catch my scent and then ... he would know I betrayed him, I swallowed hard, how could I have been so stupid? I loved Tristan .... but I loved Bryce they were polar opposites yet the exact same in lots of ways, they sort of even look familiar if I didn’t say so myself, both about the same height same muscular build and ... the same exact hands.
“Come on we have to get to the camp, the watcher there should be able to help” he said and took my hand, I pulled away slowly.
“we go in there and Tristan will kill you”
“Tristan cannot kill me, and plus I don't care about that right now, we have to get you someplace safe”
He took a step and I followed it wasn't long before I I could hear the packs foot steps hear the growls int he air, and Bryce could her them as well he raised his hands up in the air to surrender.
“Sara?” I looked up to see Tristan and he sighed heavily then took in a short breath in and his gaze became murderous as it slid from me to Bryce.
“Couldn't keep your fucking dick in your pants? You son of a bitch you forced her!”Tristan took a step forwards but I stopped him I grabbed his arm and he turned towards me
“he didn’t force me” I whispered
“he must have I do not believe you would go to him willingly” he snapped
“please Tristan it....” I trailed off not sure what to say
“let me guess filling your head with lies too” Tristan said and grabbed me by my arm and hauled me towards him “ kill him” Tristan said to Josh who nodded and then stalked towards Bryce, Josh shifted back to wolf form as he stalked closer to Bryce and launched himself at Bryce, it happened so fast, Bryce fell backwards...so did Tristan both fell flat on their backs , the only difference was Josh was snarling and trying to bite Bryce, Tristan just laid there stunned.
“Josh!” I said, his head snapping around to look at Tristan and then he jumped off Bryce decided he wasn't that big of a threat right now.
“What happened Tristan?” Josh asked and Tristan shook his head.
“Something isn’t right” Tristan said and that's when it felt like someone was dragging scalpels over my flesh.
I screamed and doubled over near Tristan who lifted my head in his arms, not only did it feel like my skin was cut it was apparent from the horror in everyone’s eyes and the blood that was now running off me and dripping on the ground.
“QUINN!” I screamed he was the only watcher I knew and I needed his help and I needed it now it hurt too much.
There was a twang of magic then Quinn stood there look at me his dress shirt unbutton at the top, he rolled up the sleeves and came over to me he motioned for Tristan to move and for once Tristan didn’t argue.
“I need one of you to find me wolfs bane now, and make sure to get the roots!” Quinn yelled.
A moment later Bryce handed Quinn the purple flowers ... and the whole plant with the roots.
“Wont that kill her it is poisonous” Josh said and Quinn shook his head
“for right now it can numb her, I'm not as stupid as I look” Quinn said and put the root in his mouth made a disgusted face chewed frantically then placed the gob of chewed root on my collar bone and in an instant it started numbing.
“How are your hands?” Quinn asked but never looked up at Bryce, I flinched as a shiver ran down my spine and I watched in horror as the moon rose in the sky, I was suddenly very aware that I was in very close proximity to a bunch of werewolves on a full moon.
“They are fine” Bryce said I glanced up at him and through the haze of pain I could see that his hands were burned, raw and red. But he wasn't paying any attention to them, his eyes were glued onto me, he was even ignoring the tremors running up his arms and the rest of the wolves who were trying desperately to hold themselves together but it was pointless as soon as the moon was high in the sky I was going to die, and the pack would shift.
“Now darlin I'm going to pick you up but I don't want you to move , the wounds are those of a curse and I don't want them bleeding anymore then they already have. Your to boy toys are coming with as well, I'm holding their shifts at bay for the time being, I need both of them if we are going to do this right”
I was hearing him but my mind was going fuzzy, what was he talking about again? It felt like I was floating on clouds far far away. No pain anymore just floating.
“what the fuck is wrong with her!” Tristan said
“A curse was placed on her she isn’t in any pain now, I'm making her high for the most part so she might be a bit out of it, the wolfs bane will numb the wounds to a point but... it will also leave no room for a shift, I have no idea what is going to happen, my magic can only go so far”
“You bloody better save her” Bryce said
Oh they were both so cute! They both deserved a big kiss, could I kiss both of them? Would it be horribly morally wrong to have both of them? Maybe a bit kinky but really they were werewolves would it be that big of a deal? I could have Tristan Monday to Wednesday and Bryce Thursday to Saturday and Sundays could be my me time! The idea was flawless....
“I will try but I cannot guarantee anything as it is you two fucked her over she is confused and has no idea who her mate is anymore, so your blood neither one of your blood will heal her so if she dies it is on you two and then you could both have each other” Quinn said it was clear he was angry, which was odd considering I had never heard him angry.
I felt myself being picked up, I could also hear growls and the cracking of bones my guess the pack was shifting .
“you okay darlin?” Quinn asked, I looked at his face to see that a beautiful rainbow was above his head
“you have a rainbow above your head” I said and he laughed shortly and I turned into his chest, I was faintly aware that his white dress shirt had red stains all over it, too bad I bet it was an expensive shirt, he did smell good though, like soap and cigarettes, odd combination but smelled good on him.
It was a short walk before I was laid down again and I opened my eyes and two faces were over me, yet they merged into one, my vision must be out of whack as Tristan's and Bryce’s face shifted together and made one, I shook my head trying to clear it.
“okay darlin this might hurt a bit but I need you to bare with me kay?” Quinn said and my only answer was a moan that escaped my lips my head was swimming my voice wasn't working .
“what the hell are you going to do?” Tristan asked, or was it Bryce who asked I didn’t know anymore
“the curse it is in her blood” Quinn said
“what the fuck does that mean?” one of them asked
“it means dip shit that her blood is the god damn problem, the only way she is going to survive this is if she dies from blood loss” Quinn said and then I felt it, my arm was raised and in the next flash I felt my skin being cut I whimpered softly, my other wrist was sliced then I was left alone, Quinn looked down at my face and I stared into his eyes, his perfectly groomed hair was a mess slightly his brow had sweat and his shirt stained he looked like he belonged in the wild now he belonged with us.
His hands came to the sides of my face and his fingers touched my skin he brought his face closer to mine as his eyes flashed white, his breathing got heavier and his muscles contracted.
I glanced to the side, Tristan stood there looking uncomfortable in his own skin, I looked to my right where Bryce stood, the same posture looking like his skin was itching the hell out of him. Their shifts were being held back it must feel weird maybe uncomfortable as well, it probably felt horrible too!
I felt myself grow weak, I was so tired.
“keep your eyes open Sara” Quinn ordered behind the white of his eyes and I struggled to keep them open.
He let go of my face his eyes going back to normal as he started mumbling something I watched as he raised his wrist over my mouth and sliced through his own flesh his life force fell onto my throat then he placed his wrist on my mouth and his blood dripped down my throat, I felt his power I knew it, he was pure and strong.
My body went freezing like I was stuck in a blizzard with nothing on
“I know Sara but bare with me, the curse in your system is trying to fight me off, please stay with me” he said and pulled his wrist away that's when I let out one more breath and everything went black.
