Sometimes… in the darkness of night…
you feel as though your being watched… but when you wake up,
nobody's there. Wouldn't it be better if our dreams didn't exist,
that way nightmares wouldn't either… at that moment I fell back
into my dream world where I wasn't what people fear, were I wasn't
Beep! Beep! Beep!
"Uh," groaned the sleeping teen from
under the bundles of covers.
Beep! Beep! Beep!
"Five more minutes." Strands of long
brunette hair where entangled throughout the multiple blankets,
being the only thing visible of the slowly awaking girl.
Beep! Beep! Be- a hand shot out from
under the covers and
slammed down on the alarm clock
breaking it instantly.
"Stupid alarm, looks like I'll have to
buy another one." Slurred the seventeen year old as she slowly rose
into a sitting position.
"ALICIA GET YOUR LAZY BUTT OUT OF BED!
WE'RE GOING TO BE LATE FOR SHCOOL! YOU ONLY HAVE TEN MINUTES LEFT
That lazy brunette just so happened to
be me. Ten minutes? "That's impossible," I muttered to no one in
particular. I finally decided to take a look at my half dead alarm
clock, and there it was, 7:45 all bright and shiny. Crap! I over
My name is Alicia McKay; I have long
dark brown hair that goes down to my mid-back, which I then threw
into a messy pony-tail. I also have bright blue eyes, I examined
them as brushed away the small strands of hair that were to short
to fit in my pony tail. I brushed them to the side were they
belonged. After I got my side bang out of the way, I put on myblack
mascara and eyeliner witch complemented my bright orbs. There's one
more thing I should mention about myself. I'm not human. I'm part
wolf. I don't really know how it happened, I've been like this for
as long as I can remember. I guess the technical name for use is
Werewolf. Yes, we do morph into wolves like in the old horror
films. But it's not like we go around attacking people or anything
I ran downstairs, finally ready after
running around my room like a monkey on steroids. When I walked in
the kitchen, thinking I would see my sister having a spaz-attack
screaming that she was going to be late.God was I wrong. Instead I
see my twin Raven McKay sitting there in all of her short black
haired glory eating a stinking bagel, and she gave off a vibe that
said"everything is right In the world."I looked at the clock and it
said the apparently correct time of 7:32. I could just feel myself
burning with rage at my fraternal twin. How dare she make me run
around my room looking like a complete idiot! Her deep chocolate
eyes were closed so I took this chance to sneak up behind her
"!!!" I screamed in her ear. I forgot
to mention it earlier but we are both part wolf and are ears are
more… sensitive then most.
"!!!" she screamed, falling out of her
chair in the process. *bonus!*
"What the heck was that for Alicia?!?
You really scared me. Plus there's a ringing in my ears now," she
said as she sat there, on the hard, cold, wooden floor of our small
two bedroom home, complaining.Let's just say she's not the most
mature out of the two of us. Raven slowly got up out of her sitting
position, while saying "Owie."
"You rigged my clock didn't you?" I
seethed giving her a fierce glare. It didn't have the effect I
"Yup!" she joyfully stated without a
care in the world.
"May I ask why?" I asked giving her a
"Oh well that's easy um, I did it so
that you weren't running all over like you normally do on our first
day of school. You've done it for two years already and so I
thought I would change up your routine a little bit this year.
After all, we are juniors."
After considering what she said for
about all of two seconds I decided what she said wasn't far from
the truth. "You're right, but did I mention that you're going to be
the one who buys me a new alarm clock," I said smiling
"Okay… wait… that's not fair why do I
"Because you're the one who… oh never
mind. Come on we've got fifteen minutes to get to school we should
leave." God, I can tell that this day isn't going to go as smoothly
as I hoped it will.
