I was alone again. In my room. Working on my song. The song I wrote for him. The guy girls wanted to be with, the guy guys wanted to be. Cory, the son of the alpha and soon-to-be alpha. He will make a good alpha. He's like his father, gentle but firm. His father is a nice man.
My guitar was laying on top of me while I lied on my bed. Staring at the ceiling. I started to strum it softly. No one but Zane knew I played. Well father knew, but he didn't really care. It was just to keep me quiet. I could tell he didn't like to look at me. I looked to much like...her. My mother. I felt a tear roll down my check.
I smiled a little, remembering how she taught me how to sing. She was the best. Most people think that when I cry because I remember her it's because I'm sad. And yes, I miss her, but I don't want her back. She was in too much pain for me to wish her back. I cry because I remember how she made me happy.
I started to play louder. I was alone, it's not like anyone would care. And then I started to sing.
Stupid Zane, I thought to myself. Always falling asleep during the party. How is that even possible? It's a party, you're suppose to be awake. Maybe I'm too hard on him. Now that his father isn't around so much he has to take care of Crystal.
I let out a growl as I thought of him. Always at some office away from his kids. All because he doesn't want to be reminded of their mother. Maybe Zane does this so I drop him off and he gets to be with Crystal...hey! This sneaky little bastard!
I saw him smirk, he knew he was leaving. As I drove him to the pack house I saw him 'wake up' and smile at me. "Yes" he exclaimed. "Finally, that party sucked." I sighed and nodded in agreement, it did suck. Everyone either drunk and passed out or making out in a dark corner.
"Well I did say we could just watch a movie" I said. Zane filled out his phone .
"It's not that late" he said. "Only 10:30." I raised an eye brow, questioning his sanity. "Movie marathon. It's not like we have school tomorrow." I thought about that, a bunch of movies, junk food, no parents, maybe Crystal would even come down...
"Yeah, I'm in" I said. He grinned at me and turned up the radio. God, he was such a kid sometimes.
When we got to his house he told me to head in. He wanted to make sure his car was okay. The only thing he might love as much as his sister is that car. You couldn't blame him, I mean a car and a little sister, you have to take care of them.
I walked in to hear a heavenly voice and a guitar. "...eyes are like a jungle, he smiles, it's like the radio. He whispers songs into my window, in words that nobody knows. There's pretty girls on every corner, they watch him as he's walking home. Sayin', does he know? Will you ever know" she sang. It was definitely a girl. I wonder who she was singing about.
Zane came in, hearing the part of the song. "You're beautiful, every little piece love. And don't ya know you're really gonna be someone, ask anyone. When ya find everything you looked for, I hope your love leads you back to my door. Oh, but if it don't....Stay beautiful" she sang loudly. Probably thinking she was alone.
"Hey Crystal" Zane shouted up the stairs. The music stopped. "I'm gonna watch some movies with Cory, okay?"
"Um, okay" she called back after a slight pause. Not as loudly, in fact if we were human we probably couldn't hear what she said.
He walked over to the couch and slumped down. She sighed, "this is just great."
"What" I asked, not seeing what was wrong. "Looks like she has a little crush" I added teasingly.
He glared at me, "yeah, and that's the problem." He sighed and got up, looking over his dvd collection. Taking our favorite werewolf one. It's always funny watching what humans think we're like.
I whispered, hoping Crystal couldn't hear, "who is he?" I didn't want to know. I didn't want to believe Crystal like someone that wasn't me. Shock at this realization spread through me. I had a crush...on Crystal. My best friend's little sister.
He gave me a weird look, "why do you care? Besides like she'd tell me. All I know he would have to be older than her or from a different pack. Maybe both."
A different pack? How would she know anyone from a different pack? The closest one was 20 miles away, and she didn't shift yet. She couldn't have gotten there on her own.
