*this is my first story i would love for there to be any comments or any suggestions on how to make it better




My day awoke with a heart pounding scream coming from the gates. I would have never imagined that my day would lead to destruction as well as lead me to a path of danger. I live in the real world ya know. The one where there are glamorous cities and lovely music. My specialty is rock, screamo, the hard core stuff. Back to the real subject. I'm a wolf, and I am the daughter of a wealthy family. My father as you can guess is the alpha of our pack. Our pack is the lead pack of all of the others. If anything were to happen to my father, our alph, then the rest of the packs would be in danger. Luckily there is me, and there is my brother. The unfortunate part, my brother hates my father and would rather care less about our pack. He hates authority and would rather be a lone wolf. He hates power and would spend it with his mate. He hasnt found her yet but he is looking. He is more like your modern day romeo.

It started with just any normal day. I woke up and the scream came suddenly. The guards ran to the front of the gates as fast as they could. The trees were blowing rapidly, and I could smell the rain coming. I ran to my window to see the madness in its action only to find my father knealing down to my dead mother. I fealt my throat swell up. Tears burning at the back of my eyes. Where had my brother gone? Why was my mother dead? The sky was black? Then suddenly out of the corner of my eyes i saw one of the guards draw a gun from his pocket and direct it toward my father. I let out a bone chilling scream as the bulllet pierced my fathers chest. BANG BANG!

I didn't think this would happen. Everything was a blur. I had no choice but to run. I ran to the door quickly, to find my brother waiting there at the door.;

"Crystal! You have to leave immediately! The pack is under attack!"

"What about you?" I screamed to him. He shoved me out the door and pushed me into another room.

"Don't worry about me. Blade will take care of you." He threw my leather jacket at me, a bag, and a gun. I looked at it in amazment. He didn't think I could, could he?

"What am I suppose to do? Where am I suppose to go?"

"You are to go to our brothering pack. You must go to fathers, brothers pack. They are waiting for you. You are the heir to the thrown sister."

"What about you, you are an heir too!"

"I'm afraid I can't hold them off much longer sister. I won't be here much longer either." He pushed me to the window where a figure apeared out from the drapes. He extended his hand to me. I looked to my brother with tears running down my face. The cold air blowing in from the now open windows. My brother smiled at me and gave me a wink. The door behind him was then bashed in. I saw many men come running toward me. My brother pushed me to the figure who caught me and jumped out the window. I screamed for my sibling as two more gun shots were fired.

My captor and I flew through several trees. I could feel the transformation in his body as he turned into a gigantic black wolf. He was very soft, as he caught me on his back before hitting the ground. I held on tight as we headed throughout the forest, and away from my home. Everything was lost now. My family was dead, and nothing was there but the smoke and fire. I burried my face into the wolfs back and drifted away.

When I awoke, I felt the warmth of a fire coming from right beside me. I realized we were still in the forest, and that it was pitch dark. there was nothing but the bag as my pillow. I noticed my gun was gone, and that the moon and the fire were the only light in this dark forbidden forest. I looked over to see a guy with shoulder length hair. His eyes were grey, and he was sitting down. He had on a leather jacket with long black pants. His converse were straight black, and he was looking at the moon. He turned his head to look at me. Everything was silent.

"I....I am very thankful" I say bending my head low to show my grattitude.

"We have a far way to go. I plan on getting you there and that's it. Don't get any ideas" He said coldly with a sharp smokey voice.

"What! I had no thoughts of that!" My face was read at what he possibly thought i was thinking of. I saw the side of his mouth creak up a little and then immediately go down to an emotionless expression.

"We have to go to your uncles pack. That's five states away ya know." He kept looking at the moon and blew out a heavy sigh.

"Five states!"

"You are no longer safe. They are coming after you. They plan on killing you so there is no heir."

"But what about my-"

"Your brother is dead! He left you in my care. That is my mission. Keep you alive and nothing else." I flinched at his words. They cut through me like ice. They were the truth. It may have been unbearable but that's what they were.

"I'm..........It's really all over?" I knew it was. I just wanted to see if anyone else knew.

"Indeed it is darling, unless you and I survive."

Everything was real. He was real. His black hair was deep in his eyes and he was looking intently at the moon. It was a full moon. I was the worst daughter probably in the entire world.

"Let's go for a run." I looked at him in surprise. He must really be serious. Well what could happen. He said nothing would happen. My heart was beating rapidly and I knew he could probably hear it but what does it matter. He said that nothing would happen between me and him, and why am I thinking about this anyway? My family just died! With that thought in mind, tears started to well back in my eyes. Out of all the bluryness, I saw Blade get up and crouch down in front of me.

"Don't cry, there is nothing we can do about this. We have to keep moving forward."

"I could have saved them."

"No you couldn't have. It's fait and everything happens for a reason."

" you really think that there was a reason that my family died?" I was getting angry now.

"Never mind, you wouldn't understand. You are still young. How about you just get some rest." With that note, he left and when off into the dark. I was frustrated and just let my head hit the bag. A thousand questions ran through my mind. What would happen if I died with the rest of my family? What would happen to the pack? The packs of the rest of the remaining states? What would happen to Blade? I kept that thought at the back of my mind. It wasn't right to think such a thing.

I stayed there staring at the sky when I heard a sound coming from the bush. It couldn't be Blade. It was way to stiff. It sounded like a smaller thing. I crouched down as if ready to attack. I looked towards the little green leafy bush. Nothing. Then there was another noise from a bush to my left. Another to my right.

Out came three grey wolves. They had green, yellow, and black eyes. Their lips curled over their razor sharp teeth. One of them had lunged for me, and I could smell in the air, the scent of rain and now blood as a black wolf leapt through the air. He was ripping the green eyed wolf to shreds. His throat was bitten out. Blood was all over his fur. Blade was the black wolf. He pounced on the yellow eyed wolf now. The yellow eyed wolf fought back only to get thrown into a tree, and dragged by his leg. I heard a snap come from Blade's mouth. He had broken the yellow eyed wolf's leg. He left that wolf there and went to the black one. He showed no mercy on this one and clawed at it untill his own claws were filled with the smell of blood. He returned to the other wolf who had it's head down. Blade bent down and took its neck in his mouth and snapped it. Blood splattered on me and I was trembling.

Blade looked at me with a hint of sadness.That easily went away. I saw him return to his human form. His body was naked, and it revealed a long swirling tatoo covering his left shoulder all the way down his pack to his waist. He went to the bushes and began putting on his clothes. He then came out and crouched beside me. He had a cloth and began wiping the blood off. He stopped when he got to what seemed like a cut on my neck. I hadn't even realised it was there.

"It's nothing" I said. I looked into his grey eyes that held worry. He bent his head down into my neck. He stuck his tongue out and covered his mouth on my cut. I flinched for a minute. I fealt some sting on my throat and then the sliding of his tongue along my neck. When he pulled away, I felt my neck and there was no cut or blood at all.

"Go get some rest, I'll stay watch."


"There is no need to thank me. It's my job" He looked at me and walked towards the edge of the fire. I started to lean towards the fire as if to get up, but i found the dark consuming me.


I woke up a few minutes later to find someone carrying me. My vision was a little blury and I fealt the feel of the wind rush through my blonde hair. The smell of the fresh air came through my nose and making me feel dizy. I rested my head back down. I heard a dark chuckle come from what seemed to be Blade. I ipened my eyes to see his face, facing 2 inches from mine. His grey eyes looking straight into my soul. I looked away as if disgusted.

"How far do we have?" I asked looking at the tall trees on either side of me. The path was long and brown, there were many hawks in the sky, and the chill of the october air crept into my jacket. There were dark clouds up ahead, telling me that we needed to find shelter fast.

"Too long."

"Why are we taking the woods and not the regular road?"

"That's what they are expecting us to do. They want us to do the obvious so they can kill you." I leaned back down on his shoulder.

"Why do people want to harm me, and my family so much."

"I thought it was obvious, they want to take over. They want power." I looked at Blade hoping to get what he was talking about. He kept walking at a steady pace and then stopped. He let me get down and we began to walk.

"Again, why are we walking, we can run." Being in wolf form was the best. I haven't been in it in a while. I was a beautiful white wolf with blue eyes. The pretty kind i guess you can say.

"Again, they can track our sent. The easiest way for them to get us. It's whay they are expecting."

We walked in silence for the next few minutes untill we reached a clearing which lead to a highway. A sign was pointed to the right saying MOTEL in big letters. I was happy and glad to be getting some rest, but then the thought of how I am resting, and my family resting for good came into my mind. The terrible thoughts crept back into my mind. I guess that Blade saw my expression, because then he began to cup my face in his palm.

"It's gonna be alright Crystal."

"I don't think so. My family is dead."

"Don't think like that, you have to survive. You got me, and if something happens to me, then you have to keep moving forward." He said smiling just a little bit.

"I don't know."

"We don't have time to think now, we have to get some rest before they sniff out our trail. We will crash at the motel and then get something to eat. I promise you will be safe. I know you are a tough one to crack."

I nodded and began to walk right behind him. We walked to the way that the sing had pointed and easily found it in less than thirty minutes. We walked right up in the small parking lot. The motel was painted a faded yellow and red stripes were going down to indicate each door. They had black windows, and a small building. The small building which we walked into was the front desk. Inside was a small desk with a chuby man sitting behind it. I could smell alchol in the air, and see that the walls were painted green. Stains covered the walls here and there.

"We would like a room" Blade said while sliding over a 100 dollar bill across the table.

"Why certainly." The chuby man said. He had glasses and short hair. He typed furiously on the old computer. He gave blade back his change, and passed him a gold key.

"Thanks." Blade said coldly.

"No problem, if you need anything miss, then you are free to ask." The old chuby man said while winking at me.

"I don't think that will be necessary." Blade said while taking hold of my waist and guiding me towards the door.

When we walked out of the small building, we easily found the room. It was right across from the small building. The door was chipped. Paint the color of blood was cracking all over the door. This was the motel we picked. Great, just great. Blade looked at me and guessed what I was thinking, and shrugged. This was the best we could get, and If I were to say anything, I would hear the usual, " They would be expecting us to do that". We walked right on in, and saw that there was only one bed, and one bathroom. A small chair in the corner with a lamp right next to it. An old Tv was right in front of the bed. I put my stuff down, and sat on the bed. Blade came and sat beside me. I looked at him with curious eyes, and then looked away. I cared about how he looke at me. I didn't want him to judge me.

"I don't think I will." He said. I gasped in horror at how he could read my thoughts.

"Are you?" I asked in question. I didn't think, but that would be why I was so attracted to him.

"Your mate?"

I couldn't believe the words that came out of his mouth. Only mates could read each others minds. I was speachless. He was actually my mate. How could this happen? I mean it wasn't a bad thing, but then how could this be real. I wanted this to happen, but then I didn't want it to. I could feel a pull from me to him.

"It doesn't matter." He said.

"What do you mean?" I was confused now. The bed creaked as he leaned back on it.

"I mean that it doesn't matter, I did not come here to mate. I came here to protect you. That was my mission. Nothing other than that."

"Oh." I wanted to tell him he was wrong, but how could I do that?

"Don't worry. It's nothing personal." He said and then got up to move to the bathroom.

"I'm not phased by it!" I said trying to hold back my tears. I was just told that I was not wanted as a mate. My mate didn't want me. That was just perfect. I don't know why, but i felt heart broken. I felt like I wanted him to want me as much as I wanted him. I layed on my back and stared at the ceiling. hoping that something would come and get me. Darkness? Blade? I don't know.

"Are you gonna wash up?" He asked after stepping out of the bathroom.

"Umm yeah. I am. I think I will wash up." I walked into the bathroom and sank down on to the floor. I wanted to cry. I was a whimp and most of all I had these feelings in me that I wanted to keep. I wanted to love. I hate being a wolf now. I think I should just die. Die with the rest of my family.

"I don't think you should die for that reason" I heard Blade say through the door.

"Get away from the door and stop reading my thoughts!" I screamed at him while covering my ears to block him out.

"You can't do that. What you feel I feel. What you say in your head I can hear it."

"Just let me be alone!" I didn't want to hear him. He doesn't like me so why should I. I could feel my wolf trying to claw out of me. She was begging to just talk to him.

I could hear a chuckle come from the other side of the door. He should just leave. He needs to leave me be. Why is he doing this anyway? Is he getting something out of it? Probably. I wouldn't be surprised if my brother gave him something to do this.

"He didn't." Blade said.


"I can't didn't I tell you that!"

"Then be like a good watch dog and go outside and take watch!"

I could then hear him break something in the room. I hated him. I hated him because he didn't like me the way I liked him. When I heard the door close, I got up and went into the room. I layed on the bed wishing to wake up from this horrible dream. Maybe tomorrow would be different.

When I woke up this time I felt pressure on the bed right beside me. Wow he came back and went to sleep. He must be really tired. I could tell by the circles underneath his eyes. They would probably go away with some coffee. I got up off the bed and put on some clothes. I rushed outside and walked across the street to a starbucks that was close by. Thank God I decided to throw some cash in my pocket.

I stepped inside of the place and instantly smelled coffee beans. Warmth spread throughout me and I felt good for once. I walked up to the cashier and ordered to coffees. The male cashier looked at me with black eyes. He smiled and for an instant I swore his eyes turned yellow for a split second.

I walked around the place to kill some time. Then I had the feeling of using the bathroom, so I went to the back to go. The bathroom was nice and clean and green and brown tiled. I looked in the mirror to wash my hands after using the bathroom. I washed my hands and then leaned down to wash my face off. When I came back up, the cashier was standing there.

"Hey miss, your coffee is ready." He said with a sly smile.

"Why are you in the girls bathroom"

"I just came to tell you. Man you smell good" He said while sniffing the air.

"What are you talking about?" I stepped back and found myself pressed against the sink. Oh God. I could see now that his eyes were a full yellow.

"Princess, you are just so lovely, maybe I can take you as my bride, or just kill you myself and take the thrown."

"Who are you!" I shouted. His black hair was ruffled and he was begining to crouch into a position of a wolf.

"Oh princess don't act like that. It won't hurt, but wait what is this smell, you have a mate? Yes he isn't far. Oh that doesn't matter."

"Stop." I turned to run to the door and found the cashier pin me to it from behind. I kicked and squirmed but it was no use. He pulled me away from the door dragging me by my hands. I was kicking and screaming but it seemed like not one was hearing me. When he lifted up his foot to kick my face, the door smashed in. It wasn't who I thought it was, but it was another guy. His hair was blonde and brown. He had piercing green eyes, and a slick smile on his face. He leaned down and snatched me up. He took out a gun and pointed it at the cashier.

"Move along you pesky mother fucker." He said waving the gun around.

"I'll be back to get the princess later. When your guard is down prince!" The cashier jumped out the windown at the end of the bathroom.

"Who are you!" I said moving away fromt the stranger.

"No need to be scared darling. I am Lance." He said giving me a full white smile and dimples with the gun raised in his hand.


"Oh I know who you are. You are the princess. Or as in modern times, the alphs's daughter."

"How do you know that?"

"Everybody knows who you are. I mean your whole pack was just destroyed. Your father was a great man and now that you are the only heir, people will do anything to get the power that has now been placed in your hands."

"So why should I trust you?"

"Who said you shouldn't?" Lance said, coming close to me. His blond-brown hair covering his green eyes. His hair falling just a bit along his neck.

"I have to go. Someone is waiting for me." I had to get back to Blade before something happened.

"Are you looking for someone in particular?" He said leaning forward close to me.

"Ummmm. I-"

"She is looking for me." I heard a farmiliar voice say. I looked to find Blade with our coffees.

"Why hello brother!" Lance said with a smile.

I stared at each of them in astonishment. This was the weirdest thing that has happened so far. They were both brothers. I looked up to see Lance bend down ever so slightly to hold my cheek in the palm of his hand. It was warm and electrifying as I stared into his green eyes.

"Lance what are you here for?" Blade asked looking curious.

"Well big brother I have news to give you."

"What kind?" Blade looked a little worried and sad at the same time. He knew as well as I did, that the unspeakable could lead us into more trouble.

" are being hunted down. The alpha's daughter is being hunted down. They aren't far from the trail, and that dude who just hopped out of the window was one of them. I just stopped by to tell you."

"We can handle our own Lance." Blade was looking dead serious. His jaw was clenched and his hair was a little dishelvled. He looked dreamy and unspeakable. I was staring at him so intently that I didn't even notice me leaning forward about to have my face implanted in the floor. Lance caught me quickly though, and steadied me.

"I thought you might say that, but the thing is, the alpha's daughter has something i need and i'm not going anywhere until I get it." I stared at him with amazement on my face. What did I have that he wanted?

"You can't have it." Blade stepped forward stepping just a little closer to me. I could feel Lance tighten his arms around my shoulders.

"You are gonna battle me brother? Lance stood up walking to Blade. He drew out a pocket knife from his back pocket. Blade did the same. I was so close to them as they sprang out in battle. Lance striking in just as Blade dodged it. Blade spun around and kicked him in the back only to have Lance swing his foot around to trip him. I backed away to a corner and watched trying to find a way to stop them without getting in the way.

Lance through the pocket knife at Blade and took another out of hispocket. Blade had caught the knife and hit Lance straight in the face with a fist. He managed to get some blood out, but Lance managed to hit him straight in the gut and slash the knife in Blades ribs. I screamed out in horror which soon came to be a terrible thing.

Blade had staggered back and leaned against the wall. He then stood up and looked towards the window to see that the cashier had came back with two more friends. I knew they weren't human, with eyes glowing blue and green bodies. They had claws stretching out, and medium sized bodies with razor sharp teeth clawing out of their mouths. There were five more behind them. It was then that we had to get out of here and fast. We had to find a place somewhere safe before it got messy. Blade isn't bad, but we don't have time to fight these things off.

"I'll take you on you filth bastards!!" Lance said raising his blade to attack. Blade quickly took him by the collar and dragged him out as fast as he could. I ran right behind them with the evil creatures and the cashier right on our tale.

"We have to make it to the woods!" Blade screamed out loud to us.

"What for we can take them on!" Lance screamed still being dragged.

"We have to change some time, if we keep running like this, then we will easily be slaughtered." I looked behind to see the cashier had changed into a brown wolf with yellow glowing eyes and snarling teeth.

Blade had let go of Lance and shifted as quick as he could. I followed right after Lance did shifting into a honey colored wolf. We were all in a line. We ran for what seemed like hours, but it seemed like we had lost them. Blade slowed to a hault and growled at the ground. I looked and saw drops of crimson liquid from where we stood till the way we came from.

"We should of just stayed and fought." Lance said to each of us.


"I only came for what I needed." Lance stepped up a little.

"Try and take it then." Blade said.

"STOP IT! We don't have time for this, We have to get to my uncle.He can help us."

"Well I ain't leaving until I get what I need." Lance said.

"We can worry about that later, but we have to get Blade somewhere safe and we need to find a place to spend the night." I said trying to steady myself.

"She is right. I don't need to be leaving a trail behind. I am putting us all in danger." Blade said.

"I know that there is a cabin not too far from here. A cabin we used for winter breaks. It's not far from here, I can smell it." I smelled the crisp pine and the wood from here. I knew that smell anywhere "but we have to hurry because it will start to rain soon." They each nodded and I ran in front leading the way.

It only took us about an hour to get to the cabin. We had to hurry because the rain was coming. I already fealt sprinkles. I dodged fallen trees, and looked in several directions. I moved in zags all over the forest floor. We had finally reached it when the rain started to come down. We entered in through a tiny hole in the basement.

"Stay down here while I check to see if it is clear to move." Blade said and left.

"You have it in you, I can feel it. Man you don't even know. I can take it out of you now and you wouldn't even know what hit you."

"Stay away Lance Im warning you." I said stepping back.

"Don't worry princess. I can't take it. Lover boy over there would kill me."

"You would still try." I said.

"Yeah I would, but what fun wouldn't it be to not try. I can't now though, I think I might just stay a while. Knock out two birds with one stone."

"What do you mean?"

"Blade did always fall hard for the most vulnerable things. Did it all the time when he was little. He was weak."

"Blade doesn't like me." I said standing my ground. I could feel the tears coming back rushing to my eyes.

"Princess, you are blind. He can only keep up this sharade for so long."

With that said, Blade came back in and nodded for us to go and get established. I walked up the stairs to where my room always was and took some sweat pants and a camisole out with undergarments. I walked with clothes in my mouth to the bathroom. Once I was in, I turned on the hot water and lights preparing to clean off the dirt.

I was done with that in 30 minutes. I combed out my long hair and brushed my teeth. There were three other bathrooms in the house, so I would expect the boys were comfortable. All that was running through my mind right now, was Lance. The electrifying touch between us, the thing he wanted from me, and his remark about Blade. Was he right about that. What would he do when he got the chance to take the thing away from me.

I walked down the hall to go back to my room. I put the clothes on the bed and walked down stairs now human and no longer wolf. I walked into a room with a bright blue bed on it and two side tables and nothing else besides a lamp. I looked to see Blade sitting on the bed tending to his wounds.

"I'm sorry, you need privacy." I said walking back.

"No it's ok, I kind of need to talk to you about something important." He said while smirking.

"Oh what is it?" I walked over and sat on the bed. He got up and leaned on the wall with a blank face.

"We need to destroy our bond, we need to deminish the mate bond."

"Why?" I asked raising. It was huring me inside. I didn't want this to happen. I new I loved him inside of my heart.

"We can't go on like this. Our bond is a downfall and the enemies will take advantage of it, and if they do, then we will die and there will be knowone to take care of the thrown." He said leaning forward.

"You feel it I know you do. You want this."

"No I don't. I am here to protect you that is it."

"You are lying!"

With that, I strode up to him and crashed my lips to his. I pulled on his shirt and pushed him towards me. He tried to back away, but then pushed me closer to him. He moved out lips together and started to trail slow kisses down my neck. I gasped when I felt his cold breath against my neck. He then went back to my mouth and plunged his tongue in my mouth. He tasted sweet and delicious. His hands traced my stomach in little swirls sending sensations down my spine. His hands held my waist tight and he moved me closer not wanting to let go.

"You make me crazy." He said between breaths.

"Then stay with me and don't fight it."

"I don't think I can any longer." he moved me so that I was against the wall. It was good until Lance knocked on the door.

"Hey you guys in there? I'm just gonna order some pizza. I found the number in a drawer with some coupons." Lance said

Blade moved his head towards mine making our eyes right across from each others.

"Don't leave" I said.

"I can't break a promise love, I can't love you the way I want."


"My duty is to keep you safe and nothing less." He said and dropped his hands and turned away leaving the room.

I stayed in the room crying for what seemed like hours. I don't think I have cried that much before. I need to pull it together. I have to survive, and what ever Lance wants that is inside of me, well, he can't have it. I strolled into the dining room looking really swollen from all the crying, but I was hoping that anyone who was in there wouldn't notice what had happened. My eyes then caught brown and blonde hair. My breath caught, but then released after my brain started to function to tell myself it was just Lance. My pace slowed as I crept up to him. He seemed to be reading something. Was it a letter? A plan to take whatever he wanted from me and go? I was nearly to inches from him when I saw, that it was a book. A book? He never took me as the reading type before, but hey a girl can be surprised.

"What are you reading?" I asked while holding my breath. He jumped back knocking over his chair in the process.

"Whoaaaaaaaaah. You scared me. What are you doing? I thought you left." He said. I noticed he was about two feet away from me. His speed was really quick.

"Left?" I aske. Where would I have gone?

"Blade left to get food. I thought you left with him." His green eyes still looked shocked and he was really surprised.

"No I didn't leave with him." I said trying to sound coldly. I can't be with Blade the way I want to. It doesn't make sense, well not to him it doesnt. My hand grasped the chair that was sitting across from the one that had fallen. I sat down and grabbed the book. The feel of it made shivers roll down my spine. I can't remember the last time I actually sat down and read a good book. I am an avid reader though. I love reading. It takes me to places that not just anyone can go. My eyes closed and I took in the scent of the book. When I opened them, Lance was staring at me with an intense look.

"I don't even want to ask what happened with you guys."

"You like Shakespear?" I asked looking down at the table of contents at all of his work.

"Yea." He kept it short not wanting to discuss.

"I adore Romeo and Juliet. It was not the best ending, but it was still breath taking."

"Romeo was an idiot."

"How so?" I asked looking at Lance. I wish I knew what he was thinking.

"For one, he never stopped to think. He only had action. He loved within first sight, which I rarely believe would happen." He sighed and laced his fingers through his hair.

"Love makes you do crazy things."

"It only does half of the crazy things, but what Romeo did was just stupid." He was looking at me with intense green eyes. He really didn't like the story.

"Well what do you think about the girl, Juliet?"

"She was stu-" Just then Blade came in with boxes of what smelled like pizza. I wasn't much of a pizza lover, but the smell. It didn't seem right. Things started to spin, and I fealt really hot. With only one thought in mind. I ran. My legs moved to the nearest exit and I fled. My body shifted into wolf form, and I ran as fast as I could. The trees being my only friends through the winding passage of the forest.

When I was done running, I slowed my pace. I sniffed the air, but nothing but fresh pine. I waited untill the moon was in clear sight. The sky was as dark as ever and the moon was as bright as snow. My mind was clear, but then a sudden crack came from behind.

"Who is there?" I growled.

"Whoah, whoah sweet heart." Lance said with hands raised high.

"What do you want?" My fangs were still out in a snarl.

"Just to talk, you ran out of there really quickly."

"How did you find me?"

"Your scent, It's everywhere." I now noticed what I had done. I had put us in danger.

"Don't worry, nobody will come within miles of this place. It's abandoned."

"But my smell."

"What about it?"

"They will find us."

"I doubt it." He then walked over and sat on the ground. He patted the space right next to him and began to look at the stars. I trotted over there and layed down next to him. He then brushed his hand over my back. The feeling felt nice and cool. It sent electric fire through me. Not like with Blade. It was different.

"What do you want to talk about?"

"Oh right, I........." He pondered for a minute."The book."

"What about it. You already expressed the fact that you hate it."

"I don't hate all of his stories. Just that one in particular." He sighed again.

He continued rubbing my back and then scratched behind my ear. It fealt really good. I fealt myself relax.

"But the sword fights are good. I was trained in sword battle ya kno. Me and Blade both. It was fun. I would always win. Blade is such the coward. He runs away from anything. I want to fight.

"What's so good about fighting. Sometimes it get's you killed." I said shifting back into normal human form with my clothes shifting as well.

"Ok, but that's if you don't know how to fight. Come on come at me." Lance said holding up his hand in a form to make me puch it. I shook my head and looked away.


"Come on you know you want to. Pretend I'm Blade or something. I know you are mad at him. Hey if you do it, I might tell you something you wanna kno." At that thought, I gave it all I had and striked forward. I was expecting to hit Lances hand, but I ended up in a different position. He had my fist turned over on my back. His other hand was wraped around my waist, and the air was knocked out of me.

"I thought you wanted me to punch you."

"You were to slow sweet heart." He wispered into my ear.

I quickly got out of his grasp, and shifted away from him.

"Don't ever take my kindness for something else. I just might come at you differently." Lance had changed cold in less than a minute. I wanted to know more about him, but it seemed like I would have to come at him a little harder than that puch I tried to pull.

"Oh.... I-"

"You don't need to be sorry. It's protecting yourself. Never let your guard down, not even for love,It's how you get killed." He got up and started to walk away. I understood what he was talking about. He meant that Romeo let his guard down and in the end got killed.

"ok" I said swallowing what seemed like a whole in my throat.

"Come on sweet heart, we have to get back before Blade goes crazy." He said waving his hand in the air beckoning for me to come."Race ya." He shifted into wolf form and headed off. I shifted right after was on his trail in less than a second.


That night I had a dream. It was cool and nice. The eyes of a green boy, and the eyes of a blue eyes boy were staring at me. The beckoned for me to come over. I ran to them, but then the ground dropped from underneath me. I screamed as I fell into a pit of bones. The bones were of my family. Flames rose up to the surface engulfing me. The burning never stopped. It was painful. I screamed but the boys reached for my hands and I never caught them. I screamed for mercy untill I turned into bones.

When I awoke screaming, the pain grew silent. I cried for mercy. My parents, my brother. The flames. what was worse than this? I looked up to see a figure sitting at the edge of my bed. He was taking off his shirt. A long tatoo coming alive. Blade. He walked over to my side, and cradled me in his arms. He silenced me and started to rock me back and fourth.

"Leave me." I said. The tears kept flowing. I wanted him, but I knew I could not have.

"My promise is not over yet." He said. He kissed my forehead and continued to rock me to sleep. The door was cracked and I could tell a pair of green eyes was lurking in. Then suddenly dissapeared within seconds. I closed my eyes and fell into darkness.

The next morning I awoke to an empty bed and the nightmare and comforting of last night seemed like a small memory. I jumped out of bed and took a shower and put on my clothes. I came down the stairs to find that the Blade was gone again. Lance was still upstairs probably. The kitchen was silent as I came in. A note on the pantry door came and caught me off guard.

i have gone out to seek information. ill be back. we won't leave untill monday morning, so get some rest, you have a weekend to get all of the things you need before we head out.


I looked at the note and just got some water. After that I went upstairs and peeked into a room only to find the bed made up. Lance wasn't in this one. I went into another one. No Lance. When I was just about to peek into the last room, I heard a cough. I turned around to find Lance. His hair a mess and his green eyes really light. He looked tired.

"Looking for me?" He said with a cocky grin.

"Umm..... I just wanted to see if you were up.My cheeks grew hot."

"Well I am. Do you want to go for a walk? He said heading to his room. I only nodded and walked back down stairs to hide my pink face.

I flew down stairs like a bat out of hell. My cheeks were as red as an apple. I do not want him to see the affect of his smile on me. I don't think I'm suppose to have this affect from him either. He isn't my mate, but then again at some times i do have pictures of Blade coming throuh my mind. He was still my mate, but what could I do about it. He didn't want me.

After I was out of the house, I waited on the porch. I didn't really need anything to eat, and I wasn't thirsty. I think I would ask Lance what he really wanted from me. Like did I have some type of power that every one was running from? Was I not a shifter? It only took at least a few more minutes for Lance to appear. He was dressed in a tight black shirt. and ripped jeans. His converse were peaking out from underneath his jeans and I saw writing on them. He carried a bag in hand and began to walk. I didn't ask questions, because I didn't want to ruin the mood. I mean he goes from hot to cold in less than fifteen minutes.

"Just follow me sweet heart." Lance said giving me a cocky smile and continue to walk.

"Oh I am." I walked right behind him and kept a steady pace. I didn't walk too fast, and I didn't walk too slow. We were back in the forest again, and then a big pond came into view. and we passed it. we walked for another thirty minutes and then a big gazebo came into view. It was old and kickety and brown and white. It looked like it came out of a fairy tale. Lance walked inside it and sat down pulling his bag onto his lap.

"Come on," He said pointing to seat across from him. Leaves and trees were swaying in the wind and I pulled my grey jacket around me. I wasn't cold, but I wasn't hot either. My blue jeans and sneakers gave the impression as if I was hiking for hours. I hope he didn't mind what I looked like, but then why was I thinking of this? He wasn't my mate, and I had no right to think of him like this. I had to get rid of all feelings for him and his brother. It wasn't right. Blade was gone. He would be back shortly today. I wonder what he was looking for in particular.

"What are we doing here?" I asked. I know we walked, but what were we gonna do?

"Well we walked for a long time so I decided we would take a break."

"Oh, well I also want to talk to you too." he pulled out books from his bag. Some books about mythology, and some books of fairy tales. I wondered why.

"Shoot away."

"Well, tell me about yourself. I mean I just met you, and your brother. Yall are so different. Yall have different goals. Many secrets."

"You want me to tell you my secrets?"

"No! I just want to know about you."

"And If I don't want to tell you?" He gave me a cold glare which then turned into a soft gaze and cocky smile. I smiled back at him and gave him a light punch in the arm. He was funny.

"Well fine then. Don't" I crossed my arms and turned away. I then fealt a book fall at my side. I looked at it and saw it read Mythology.

"Many good stories in here. You might like some. You might even find some answers." He pulled out a copy for himself, and I didn't bother to ask him where he got these from. I flipped through the book and found a particular story. I slightly remember it. It was a story about a girl who was seduced by a man. She was locked away in a tower after that and never saw her lover again. When she came out, she saw him, and found out he was a cannable. I grimaced at this. I never read anything like this and it kind of freaked me out a little bit.

"That was creepy." I said shuting the book.

"Love does crazy things." He said giving me a smile. It was his smile. That cocky grin.

"That was way beyond crazy. You would turn into a monster if your lover left?"

"Yes I would. If she meant a lot to me. That isn't stupid, it is just showing feeling in a different way. A way to protect yourself."

"Ok... Hey I read the story, now can you answer some of my questions?" I asked.

"Ok. I'm all ears now." He crossed his arms and leaned back looking at me intently.

"Why are you here?" I did want to know why, but I really wanted to know the true answer.

"You already kn-"

"The real answer!" He sighed.

"Ok, I was sent to obtain a power you have. I need to get it at any cost."

"What power?"

"It isn't revealed yet, but it could give a lot of power to the other packs, and can also give destruction as well."

"Oh. Well what about Blade? Does he know? Does he want it t?"

"He has his own needs."

"Does he want the power?" I was not sure of this answer I was about to recieve.

"Yes, but not as much as me. He is only ordered to take you to the vice pack. He wants to make sure you are safe. Your brother made a deal with him to keep you safe."

"What was the deal?"

"I don't know. Blade keeps that as his little secret. Anything else sweet heart?"

"When do you plan on getting the power from me?" I needed to know if I could protect myself.

"Not now. You can't know now. What fun would that be?" He smiled and leaned forward and winked at me. He then looked up and saw Blade come out. I gasped and stood up. Blade nodded his head beckoning for me to come over.

I went over to him without a second glance at Lance. The pull I had to Blade drove me insane. When I got deeper in the woods, Blade turned to face me.

"Yes?" I asked making my tone dark and deep.

"I have found the answer to our problem as well as getting you to the vice pack safely."

"What deal did you make with my brother?" I asked abruptly.

"That is none of your concern. Now you will take the journey with me to go to the saint. She will drag the bond from us and we will then meet with Lance to get you to the pack."

"It is my concern, and I'm not going anywhere with you. I need answers. You don't get anything from me. You don't even want this to happen."

"It doesn't matter what I want. It is only about the promise." He clenched his fist and his jaw tightened. He was hurting. I stepped forward and he stepped back.

"I'm not going with you."

"You have no choice. Either that, or you die."

"I'll take my chances." I turned around and made a run for it. He was close on my heels in less than a minute. He tackled me down and took grasp of my wrist. He stared at me and looked deep into my eyes. I had tears coming out of my eyes now.

"It's best for us. In order for me to protect you."

"You don't want to protect me. You only want to keep a promise to my brother." I started to cry more now.

"I can't betray him. I will find a way to make you see that." He groaned and then leaned down to my ear to wisper I'm sorry. He then got up and shifted into a wolf and left. I was left in the forest now. Nothing around me. I heard snapping branches and looked up to see Lance staring at me.

"Come on sweet heart, don't let him get you down like that." He said giving me a hand to pull myself up.

"I don't wanna hurt anymore."

"Then let's get out of here. I'll take you out to eat." He said guiding me in the direction of a road. Right across the road was a club. The music was blaring and the crowds of people were coming in and out of the club. I stood there looking at Lance. I was speachless. What could have happened next was only a mystery.

"Lance." I said still frozen. He took my hand and smiled at me.

"Trust me." He guided me across the street to the front of the club. The bouncer nodded and we entered. The club had people swaying to the beat and dancing around. I saw bars and bar tenders every where. Neon lights were flaring and the music was very loud.

"Lance!!!" I screamed over the music. He smiled at me and guided me into the sea of bodies. He turned me around and put his hands on my hips. I was shocked, but I didn't want to look like an idiot.

"Just follow me." He said close to my ear and started to move. I swayed with him and moved to the beat of the music. We stayed like that for a long time. I was happy and free of worries. I turned in Lances arms to look at him straight in the eye. He had a history behind him and I was the one who was seeing it bleed through him. I could see the happiness inside me. I fealt comfortable. Lance leaned down and looked me in the eyes. He wispered something in another language. I didn't understand, but it sounded french. I don't know why he was speaking that language, but then I realized, that Lance wasn't even from here. He wasn't from the U.S Thats why he sounded so weird at times. He was good at speaking english though. I smiled at my discovery.

"Lance you hide your tracks very good." I said.

"I do. Very good."

"Why do you do this to me though, all of this." I said looking around me.

"Because I like you." He leaned forward and his lips were only two seconds from consuming mine. I closed my eyes, but then a scream came out from behind, and a giant wolf came out. He had black fur and blue icy eyes. Blade?

Lance gave out a chuckle and took hold of my hand as quickly as possible, He swung me over till I landed in a chair. I watched in amazement as Lance started to throw chairs at the black wolf. Was that Blade? Lance was laughing frantically while dodging the giant wolf and throwing wine glasses and other objects at the wolf.

"Come on big brother! Fight me!" Lance said lunging for the wolf while still in human form. The wolf lunged for him as well sending Lance down on the ground. The struggled rolling on the floor. Lance was pretty strong for his human size. People from all over the club evacuated and started to scream in terror. I think it was quite funny actually since I was not running in fear. I stayed and watched in amazement. Blade switched into his human form leaping away from Lance. He jumped on top of a string of lights. He ran across them throwing daggers as he ran. Lance leapt from place to place dodging them. I could tell he was getting fed up and just wanted to fight him.

Lance grabbed the bottles of beer and other drinks and started to throw them at each of the lights sending them bolting into electric sparks. He was throwing them at each end trying to trap Blade. Blade then leapt down from the string of lights and landed safely on the ground. He smiled and ran towards Lance. Lance was prepared though and took out a pocket knife.

"Oh brother, you fail to surprise me." Lance said coming for Blade, I was shocked to see not a single person was in the club now.

"You want a fight, I'll give you one." Blade was now coming and his knife clanked against Lances. They moved around swiftly. Not one of them getting cut. I watched Lance move and flip across several pillars in the club. He dodged Blade and came at him as swiftly as ever. Blade came and knocked him off guard. He was now over Lance who had fallen slightly. He thought he had won till Lance kicked him in the crotch. I tried not to laugh, but Blade kind of deserved it. I mean he came in the club trying to smash it, and for what? Lance leaned down and stabbed his brother in the ribs. Reality had set in with me, and I gasped. Lance looked at me, and smiled. I clenched my fist and tried to move, but I was so paralyzed with emotion I couldnt. He then stabbed Blade again in the back and I screamed.

Motion took a hold of me then and I went to Blade. I was at his side and I looked furiously at Lance. He kicked Blade, and a blast of smoke came up. Lance snickered and leaned down to pick me up. I looked at what was left on the floor to find another person who was not Blade, and a note in his pocket.

"You can't hide from me." Lance said taking the note. He didn't open it, but instead sent it in flames in the palm of his hands. I was shocked. He wasn't a normal wolf shifter. He was something far different. Far more dangerous.

"Lance what aren't you telling me?" He was hiding things, but then again wasn't Blade?

"Sweet heart? This man isn't Blade, and he was trying to kill, and poison you by using your mates face."

"Why?" I asked.

"You are the princess, you are the alpha daughter of the territory, why wouldn't anyone not want to kill you, and you have the power." He sighed and kicked the dead body on the ground.

"I am just a target."

"Not just that sweet heart. You are much more." He leaned down and moved a piece of hair from my face. His green eyes shined, and showed compassion. I also fealt fire and ice flow through my veins at his touch. It fealt right and wrong.

Lance took me home that night, and I instantly went upstairs to my room. I left Lance to consult with Blade about what happened. I heard arguing. Lance wants to Blade to let him have the power, Blade refuses and says to keep oath to my brother. Lance laughs and threatens him. It was a never ending chaos of words and thrusts to the wall. Blade was my mate, but he didn't want me. Lance wasn't a normal shifter, but he made me feel great and he also wanted my power. I then heard a knock on the door, it was Blade. I shifted under the covers and pretended like I was sleeping. He probably knew I wasn't and sighed. He came in any way. He sat at the edge of the bed and I could hear the scraping of clothes against skin. What was happening? My heart sped up. What was going to happen? I cluthched my chest. I was only wearing a camisole and some sweat pants. I was so nervous.

"Scoot over." Blade said, and I didn't move for a second, but then I felt his hand swoop around my waste and push me away and then back again so I was against his chest.

He sighed again and I could feel his heart beat. It was loud and stable. He was stable. I wondered what he was doing in here.

"I am saying my last goodbye. I am saying goodbye to our bond." that slashed through my heart and I felt tears prick the back of my eyes. He was hurting me so mucha and he didn't even know.

"Why, why even come in here?" I was so hurt.

"I know, that once the bond is done, I will never feel this way again in my life. The feeling of happiness, love, and life all in one." He turned me around to face him. I heald my breath. His eyes were bright blue now. His black hair falling in his eyes. I moved the strands of hair away and closed my eyes. I wished so badly, that he would see how I fealt.

"I want to at least know what the deal was with you and my brother." I said and he shook his head. He closed his eyes. I put my hands on either side of his face and beckoned him to look at me. He looked at me, tears stinging the rim of his eyes, but never falling.

"I feel your hurt love, every thought, i hear, every thing, I feel. You have no clue. I want you so badly, but my promise to your brother can't make me feel this way." He tightened his grip around my waste.

"He won't have to know." I said, my brother was being cruel now, and he was dead!

"I couldn't do that."

"Please?" I said willing my power of everything in me to feel sorrow and pain. I was feeling this, but I wanted to feel it too. Then he would have to agree with me. I then fealt the tears spill over my eyes and fall onto my cheeks. He wiped them away and sighed a heavy sigh.

"Love, I...."

"What will happen to me? What about how I feel once our bond is separated?" I wanted to know the feeling of him and me together. I gasped from the throbing in my throat. Blade took that into consideration and kissed me with such passion. He moved his lips over mine, and caressed my back. I groaned from his touch and fealt his tongue. Our tongues mingled for what seems like endless hours. He leaned over me, putting all of his weight on his hands. He trailed kisses down my neck and up to my jaw bone. It fealt like hot flames around my skin. He looked at me with fierce blue eyes.

"Losing you will kill me." He said and leaned over and trailed more kisses down my jaw. I pulled his face back up to mine and kissed him urgently. His hands traced the line of my sweat pants beckoning for them to come off. He wanted me, and I could feel it. My hands traced circles down his chest and he groaned in my mouth. It made me feel happy that I made him act like this. He tugged on my pants and pulled them down just a little, exposing my thighs. He caressed my thighs and tugged the rest of my pants down. I felt his hand grip my thigh and twist it around his waste. I grinded into him and was moaning a little louder now. Blade chuckled at my pleasure.

Everything was going well, when we heard a knock at the door. I sighed in anger and Blade did the same. He gave me another peck and put a finger to my lips. He slipped out of the bed and opened the door after putting his shirt on. He looked at Lance who was standing in the door way with a blank expression.

"You have a phone call." Lance said slowly glancing at me. His expression was hard and cold. Blade left the room immediately and never came back. Lance was still in the door way and looked at me with sorrow in his eyes. He wispered something in french and left. What could I do.


The next morning I awoke to the smell of bacon and eggs. I walked down stairs to find Lance cooking, and Blade at the table reading a book.

"Smells good." I said happily.

"Yea, will I'm the only one who can cook around here, if it werent for me, mr. high and mighty and yourself would be eating rabbits!" Lance said raising the spatula in the air.

"Rabbits?" I asked.

"Don't mind him, he is just a little cranks, he didn't get enough sleep." Blade said .

"Well maybe if you two weren't....." Lance looked at me and stopped and just stared at the pan of eggs. He looked sad and angry.

"Sit down, we have to talk about our journey." Blade said. I sat down and looked at him.

"Journey?" I was confused now.

"Yes, to the saint." He looked at me now with serious eyes.

"Why?" I clenched my fist under the table holding back anger. It didn't work.

"We have to keep you safe and protected." He rose and looked at me.


"That is final!" He said clear and then walked out of the room.

"Hey? What about the eggs I just made?!?!? You bastard!" Lance yelled furiously.

My heart was hurting now, how could this happen. Did last night not mean anything to him? Did I not mean anything to him? I heard Lance sigh and repeat something in french and walk over to me. He wrapped his arms around me and kissed my head. He gave a warm smile and went back to cooking. This day did not go as planned.

I looked at lance with a great intenisty. My mouth formed a smile and I looked at lance and turned back tot the table. He came over placing a plate with eggs and bacon and fresh toast on it. It looked so good and I was starving, I don't really recall the last time I ate something like this. The aromas around it made me not want to wait, but it looked so good that I didn't want to even touch it.

"Are you allergic or something?" Lance said scratching the back of his head. I shook my head and began to eat it. My eyes closed and I could feel the warm eggs hit my tongue. This was really good. I ate the rest of my food and decided that if Lance could cook then I would clean the mess. I was a very good helper, but when I tried to clean, Lance came from behind and put his chin on my shoulder. He sighed and wispered a sentence in french. His green eyes became lighter and he relaxed on my shoulder. It fealt good, and even though I fealt terrible because about what I did with his brother, I just wanted comfort, I wasn't what everybody thought I was. I wasn't a garden tool.

"I can do the dishes Lance." He looked at me with amusement.

"I never said you could. I just thought you needed comfort. He placed his hands on my waste and then backed up. He removed them and returned at my side rinsing the dishes I had just washed.

"I..... can't fight him anymore." I said.

"Well you don't have to fight anymore. I'll fight for you, I have been waiting to beat Blades ass." He was laughing now and grining with that cocky smile of his.

"I'm just going to go with him."

"Ahhhh, to the saint. To release the bond." He was still smiling.

"Yeah, he keeps pushing me away."

"Or pushing you in the right direction." He wispered. He then finished the last dish and turned to look at me. He turned again and leaned against the counter and put his his hands behind his head leaning back. He kept the grin and closed his eyes. Lance was areally beautiful guy, but I couldn't give him the satisfaction of that.

and we meet you there after the bond is broken." It was Sunday, so tomorrow our journey would begin
