I’m sitting on my bike right outside the home school place.
I went to school until I was ten and the rest of my learning came only if I needed it.
I’ve been out here for thirty minutes and I haven’t sense any werewolf around. I have, in fact, seen as people turn to look at me. It must be because of how I look. It would be strange for them seeing a person with silver hair and one silver eye. The whole look came it the package of become a zombie hunter. It came with the enchanted sword I have. It was given to me the same day my parents were killed right in front of me. It’s a nasty story I hate remembering.
I shift on the seat and look over at the school. It has its own security guard standing right beside the door. The place seems safe enough. Still, the girl may be big but she would never be a match for a werewolf.
She’s safe in there. I have another thirty minutes to wait for Juliana and then we’re out of here.
I notice the sports car driving up to the front of the school but only four parking’s away. No one gets out. It’s a red car, pretty popular with teen these days, with those that parents with money.
It sticks out like a sucker. I look around me and notice two black BMW’s stopping a few lines away from where I’m parked. They park in different rows but all looking this way. I notice the men in side. They too don’t get off.
Ok, we have something here.
I stand up straight and pretend to stretch.
I whistle and soon Leon appears. He comes from one side and stops beside me.
“See those black BMW?” I ask. “I want you to go check them out. I have a strange feeling coming from them.”
With that, he walks away, making his way through the cars and towers the two black ones.
I look over at the red one. No one comes out from it. All I know is that there is only one person in there. He won’t be a problem if he isn’t the werewolf. I didn’t sense anything from it. Though, the windows are close, so I wouldn’t be able to sense anything coming from in there that way.
Leon comes back.
“Well?” I say.
“They are werewolves,” he answers.
Ok, there’s going to be more than one werewolf.
“They come with the red car,” he keeps going. “It seems they are bodyguards.”
Bodyguards…? Who would have werewolves for bodyguards?
Oh crap. There are only a few people who would. It would be the pack leader or any of his family. Shit, we’re dealing with someone who is related to the pack leader.
Five minutes have passed and Juliana comes out. She’s twenty minutes early. I watch her as she carries her books in one hand and makes her way down the sidewalk, only to stop and turn her head. I heard her name too.
From the red car, a tall big guy comes out. Juliana waves and the guy makes his way towers her. I watch with my eyes.
“He’s a wolf too,” Leon says.
He must be the one following Juliana. He must be coming here and visit her when she comes to school. It’ll be the only way for him to get close to her. I watch as they chat and laugh. I can hear some of the things they are saying but my ears aren’t perfect to hear everything they are saying.
“He wants her to go on a ride,” Leon says. “She refuses but he keeps insisting. She tells him about you waiting for her but he suggested they ditch you and have some fun.”
That piece of shit. I could go over there and kick his butt…then again, I’ll catch the bodyguard’s attention and a fight might break out.
I’ve got to play it smart on this. Whoever they guy is, he must be pretty important to have so many bodyguards following him around.
“He keeps insisting,” Leon starts. “I’m afraid he might insist too much.”
I nod, moving away from the bike, I walk towers them in a fast pace. I have to stop this before he does end up making her go or pressures her into getting into the car.
I get close to them and he turns first.
Juliana looks over to me and smile, “Hi,” she says. “I was about to go.”
I nod, “Hey sweetheart. We should get going. I thought maybe we could get a bite to eat before taking you back home.”
She looks back the wolf. I look at him too and he does not look very happy.
“Well, I have to go,” she says.
“I thought you said your godfather was waiting for you,” he speaks.
“He is my godfather,” Juliana says.
“He doesn’t look it. It’s he a bit too young?”
I stare at him, “It’s never too young to be a godfather,” I tell him.
He doesn’t like me. I can tell but I don’t really care. I guy could glare all he wants. He isn’t going to get Juliana now.
Juliana moves to stand beside me.
I reach over and kiss her forehead, “Why don’t you go over to the bike,” I tell him. “I’ll be there in a minute, Leon is there.”
She says goodbye to the guy and walks off.
I watch her leave and when she’s far enough, I look back at him.
He’s glaring at me, a frown on his face and I can actually see his banes sticking out.
“You must be the guy who keeps coming to see her all the time,” I start. “What do you want?”
He takes a step forward, “That’s none of your business,” he growls.
“It is,” I tell him. “While she has me around, I’ll make it my business. Now, I won’t ask again. What do you want?”
He doesn’t stand down, “And I’ll say it again, it’s none of your business.”
I don’t move back, not even when he got closer. He doesn’t scare me. I’ve dealt with werewolves before. They are a bit stronger than zombies and faster than them too but it doesn’t make a difference. I’ll take one down if I have to.
I half turn away but keep my eyes level with him. He’s taller than me and bigger in body. There is a really big difference between him and me. Still, that won’t matter. I can still take him on.
“I don’t care who you are or what. You keep away from her.”
Something passes through his eyes. I stare at him a few more seconds, letting him know that I know what he is. Then I turn away and make my way towers the bike. While I walk, I notice the other werewolves making their way towers the guy.
I get to the bike, without another word, we ride off.
I knew they were following ever since I left Kristopher’s place. Leon sensed them right away. There’s no other way but confront them and ask them what they want. I hope they don’t make the mistake in trying to challenge me in any way. I don’t want to right anyone right now. I especially don’t want to fight someone related to the wolf leader of this town.
I drove to a park just on the other side of the rail road. It’s dark and no one seems to be around right now. It’s a perfect place to discus whatever they walk to talk about, or so I hope they want to talk.
I get off and lean on my bike as they park, the two black BMW on each side of me, leaving me in the middle. The red sports car parks to the right of me and the same wolf gets out.
He’s dress the same and with that same angry face I had left him with. I surely didn’t leave any good impression on him. Oh well, it doesn’t really matter.
All six bodyguards get out of the cars and surround me in a circle. The other wolf approaches me slowly, his eyes glowing with anger. It seems I really did piss him off really badly.
He stands in front of me, his eyes shifting colors, “I don’t like people talking down at me,” he says.
I stare at him.
“I don’t like you and I don’t like you hanging out Juliana.”
I give no expression away as I keep my eyes leveled to his.
“I want you gone. I want you to run away and never come back.”
This time I smile and he twist his face into an even angrier state.
“You think that’s funny?” he says. “You won’t find it funny when I use you as my pig. We’re going to play tag. I’m it and you get to hide.”
So, he wants to go out hunting. It sound nice but I would prefer to hunt not be hunted. I sigh and look around me. There won’t be any way out of this without putting up a fight. I sigh. It won’t matter. I’ll just have to get things cleared out between him and me and then I can be on my marry way.
I was about to say something when I see the hand moving towers me. I blink and step back, the fist missing me by an inch. I even felt his skin rub my shin.
I keep valance and look at him, “What the hell is your problem?”
He frowns and look at me puzzled, “You shouldn’t have avoided that,” he murmurs, his voice sounding confuse.
“If I didn’t, I would have gotten hit,” I tell him annoyed a bit.
He stares at me hard, “Who are you, really?”
“I told you already. I’m Juliana’s godfather.”
“You aren’t human,” he says. “I don’t know what you are.”
I half smile, “No, I’m not human. I’m a zombie hunter. I’m Crest Silver, the zombie hunter.”
Something goes through his eyes and his face is drained of color. Even now, as dark as it is, I saw him turn white. He steps back and shirts uncomfortably. He’s scared. I can see it now. He knows who I am now and he has probably heard of me too.
One moment he was acting superior and the next, he’s a wolf with his tail between his legs.
“Look,” I start, “I don’t want trouble. I’m only looking out for my godchild. I have the right to be over protective, even more when there’s a wolf after her.”
He nods slowly, “Y-yeah, well…” he gulps. “I really like her… I –I just wanted to get to know her better.”
I nod, “Yes, but to see her, you would have to talk to her Dad.”
He nods again, “I’ll do that.”
And that was all. Things went on their marry way just like I wanted them to. He doesn’t even look back when he gets back into his car and drives off. His wolves do the same thing and then they’re off after him. Not bad, not bad at all…
