This is the second part to the story of Fracture. If you have read Fracture you can skip this prologue. If you hadn't, please go back and read Fracture first. I promise you, you will not be dissappointed. I have linked it on the side.
It's strange how life changes. As a kid I used lay to down in my backyard, stare at the clouds and just daydream. I would feel the sun warming my skin, smell the fresh cut grass and be so delighted in the simplicity life. The playground was my kingdom, hopscotch was my profession and cookies made me feel like my belly was dancing. The world was perfection.
Then things changed. I started middle school and met Adam Greenhaven. Adam was the son of our Alpha. Up until that moment I had never interacted with him. It was the first time we were ever in the together. I walked into class, looked for a seat and that's when I saw him. Truth be told, I had no real reaction to him. He was just boy and at the time I hated boys. It was the look that he had on his face that stopped me in my tracks. He stared at me in surprise, as if I was horse that walked into the room. His head titled to the side, confusion clearly on his face. I thought I had something on me and was about to check, when I saw a hardness settled into his eyes. Then disgust. When I walked past him, I felt myself shudder in fear. I knew something was wrong, I just didn't know what.
By the end of the school day, I had tripped fives times, thanks to him and his boys. From that day on things only got worse. By the end of the year, I had three broken fingers, numerous sprained ankles and several concussions. All because of Adam. By the time high school rolled around I had learned how to set broken bones by myself. At the time, no one knew despite several attempts to tell people. At his command I was left unable to tell anyone, including my own family. When you try to go against an Alpha's command, you get a headache, which escalates, into a migraine that brings you to your knees. I gave up trying when my ears started to bleed. I learned that I was left to fend for my own.
The central crux to my dilemma or moment of life altering change concerned Adam. Specifically what he was to me. I had a gift and I could see mates that needed help to meet. At the age of twelve I had a vision of the future showing Adam rejecting me on his eighteenth birthday. My heart broke into a thousand pieces.
In that moment I felt a horror descend one me, instantly ending my childhood. I wasn't supposed to know because as a kid I couldn't process what was going on. The premature finding of his rejection lead to a withdrawal from my wolf. It left me more isolated than ever. At such a young age, I had already discovered that I would never marry, have children or live the life I expected to happen. I learned that my greatest tormentor was supposed to be the man who was to protect me. What do you do when your mate is bad person? In shock I realized that there was no happy ending for my story, no prince to save me from my monster. My torment would continue for rest of my life. The devastation of the truth was so bad; my wolf couldn't handle it and withdrew completely. I felt a shifting of energy in my soul and knew in that moment that my wolf was dying.
It reached breaking point when during my junior year; Adam loosened a climbing rope in gym class. When it came undone I fell twenty-five feet to the ground and broke almost every bone on the right side of my body. The weakened state of my wolf prevented me from healing, as I should have, bringing me close to death. In some part, I wish that death had succeeded.
