The next few days passed with intense training, and no matter what we did I was still worried that we weren't prepared enough.

"Again." Chase ordered. I tried again and failed.

"Again." He encouraged. I tried again. Nope, I still couldn't do it. We were currently training with weapons and I had been trying for the last hour to disarm him with no success.

"I cant do it!" I growled, accepting defeat. That's when I jumped a foot in the air as flames shot out of my palms.

"What the hell?!" I asked.

"Your powers are working now. Its triggered my your anger." Chase explained. "Now again."

Eventually I managed to control my powers long enough to heat the dagger in Chase's hand to a point when he was forced to drop it. He looked at ne in surprise and I took the opportunity to pounce. he chuckled falling backwards onto the grass.

"I've got a surprise for you tonight. Meet me here at seven and yes its a date." He said, jumping to his feet and running off.

Looking at the clock I saw that it was 6:52 p.m. I smoothed down the front of the light pink dress nervously and checked myself over in the mirror. I then pulled open ny bedroom door and made by way out into the garden. Checking my watch now it was 7:01 and he still wasn't here. That's when his Beta Jack stepped out from the shadows. "I've to give you this." He said, handing me a white Lilly. I remembered telling Chase that that was my favourite type if flower. Before I could ask any more questions, he was gone. I looked down at the Lilly and saw a note attached to it.

"Katherine, walk ten steps forward. Ten is for the number of times you have told me you loved ne" I smiled, trust Chase to make this as romantic as physically possible.

I walked ten medium sized steps forward and saw the next Lilly on a tree.

"Turn to your right and walk nine steps forward. Nine is the number of months we dated for the very first time we met."

I followed his instructions until I had walked in a very large circle and there he was, in a tuxedo and down on one knee. I blinked back the tears I hadn't realised had formed in my eyes. He cleared his throat as I walked closer to him.

"Katherine Mellissa Hunter, you were my very first girlfriend and my only love. Never a day went by that you weren't on my mind. I know that we've had our problems, but I love you with all my heart. Will you do me the honour of becoming Mrs Katherine Johnstone?" He asked and I could see the passion burning in his eyes. I walked forward to see the diamond ring that sat in the box in his hand.

"Yes." I replied.

"What?" He asked.

"Yes!" I repeated. he stood up and I wrapped my arms around his neck, kissing him hard and passionately on the lips. This was perfect,he was perfect. I so lucky that he was mine. "I love you." I whispered.

"Good, so can I put this on your finger now?" He laughed.

I held my hand out and he slid the ring on my finger.

I crashed my lips to his again, and he pulled away. I felt rejected until I saw the lust and love in his eyes. He leaned down slowly and kissed me again. This time the kiss was different, it was slow and building and emotional.

The first person I wanted to tell was ny mother, and that was exactly what I was doing when I knocked on her bedroom door.

When no one answered, I pushed the door open and stopped. The room was empty, I checked everywhere. Her possessions were gone and she hadn't even left a note.

My mother had left me. Just like my brother. Just like my father.

Everything was too much and I felt the darkness take me. Just before I completely blacked out I was sure I heard Luke's voice.

"I'm okay."

I woke up in the infirmary. Chase was sleeping on a chair next to my bed. I brushed his dark hair off his face and he immediately sat up. He blinked a few times looking confused. He looked at me before pulling me tightly into a hug. "Don't you ever do that to me again." He scolded and I saw the fear and panic in his eyes. "Are you okay?"

"She's gone." I said weakly. My whole family is falling apart.

Chase hugged me again. "How long have I been out?"

"Two days." I counted out the days in my head and realised that tomorrow was the day we left to rescue Luke.

"Take me home please." I asked.

"But Kitty you have to-" He started but I cut him.

"I'm leading this pack tomorrow and I cant do that from a hospital bed." I snapped. Looking hurt, he lifted me into his arms and I snuggled into his chest.

"Thanks. I'm sorry for snapping but I have to get him back. I just have to." I said. I had no idea just how far he'd walked until he opened our bedroom door and placed me down on the bed. The last thing i thought before I fell back to sleep was that I hoped I could do what I had to tomorrow.
