When I was outside I sat down at the backside of the school. The grass was cold, but I didn’t give a shit. The tears fell and I mentally scolded myself. He couldn’t possible know that was a touchy subject for me. He just didn’t know, no need to break down like a little girl.
Young werewolf from our pack, you are called into meeting. If you are at school, leave now. This is important to the whole pack, the school will be informed.
Our alpha said in our minds and I nodded sternly before I got up from the ground. I was pissed at myself for letting him get under my skin. Never again, I need to toughen up.
‘’There has been rumours going around for a long time of disappearing girls and how no one has found them yet.’’ The Alpha was talking and no one was whispering or making any noise at all, in fact no one even dared to move their eyes from him… except Will who was looking intently at me, his eyes were burning in my back and I couldn’t simply shake it off.
‘’ the girls were found yesterday in the tunnels were the subway goes, a hobo found them and called the police, don’t worry this won’t come out in the press we already have men on that case.’’ A pair who had lost their daughter broke down, and then it was chaos. Everyone had something to say or to accuse someone they thought did it. But for all we knew, who was to say one did it. Why not a whole group?
Our Alpha looking tired, but when he opened his mouth to shush again, someone else beat him to it. His voice rang in the room, strong and fierce, it carried an alpha’s demand and he sounded a lot stronger than his father. It was Will.
‘’will you all shut up? We need to think, not shout our ears out. And who’s to say it is only one person behind all of this. We might very well be looking for a whole group who did it. Which it probably is, one person had to use hours carrying the bodies down and he would probably have been spotted whilst taking so many trips up and down, but if it had been a group it would have gone more smoothly and the risk for them getting caught considerably lessened.’’ Will said and people listened to him, I glared. He was on the same path of mind I was going down, only he had gotten more logic in the explanation.
‘’who are you?’’ a boy who stood besides Jericho asked and I didn’t resist the urge to roll my eyes. Either the man was dumb or very oblivious.
Will looked a bit shocked at the question, but his father answered it. ‘’ this is my son, he has come home from school, he will soon take over the pack since he has finished his education.’’ He said and with the way he said it, made no room for arguing or further questioning.
A lot of people nodded and acknowledged him as their future leader. For an outsider this would have been shocking, so many people just accepting him as their leader when some of them were older and more experienced, but it was pack law and we stood by the pack law. Besides it happened all the time and people were getting used to it now. If you were born an alpha then you would become an alpha, simple as that. However, if you were born human like me, you would sometimes be looked down on. It wasn’t something I let drag me down though… for the most part at least.
I suddenly felt the air being drawn out of me and I got struggle breathing, I didn’t want to attract attention to something so banal, so I made my way outdoors. I sometimes felt suffocated when in places with a crowd that keep pressing on me, I just feel caged by it.
Once outside I inhaled deeply and sat down on the grass, just staring up at the sky and trying to get myself under control. But to be honest, I was I no hurry to get back in. everything was just so depressing, why would anyone kill those girls. What had they done?
Maybe that was a place to start, what they did in their spare time. I sighed and contemplated to get up and move inside again to participate in the debate and arguments. The very thought made my thoughts dark again, sometimes I wondered if I should be able to handle everything. I mean I had been born human and then bitten, I shouldn’t be able to handle deaths and murders in one stride or in this pace.
