Chapter 10: Welcome Back

1.2K 76 6

I was waiting for Chloe outside my house. I knew the timing for a date was completely wrong, but if we were to wait until everything was calm, we'd never go out with each other. The door opened behind me and Chloe came outside.

"Hey", she said and I was momentarily stunned. She looked...

"You look amazing", I said.

"Uhm, thank you...", she said shyly, "you don't look bad yourself."

I smiled.

"So, where are we going?", she asked curious.

"I have something in mind...", I said.

"Care to share?"

"Are you hungry?", I asked her.

"I'm starving", she answered without even thinking.

"Good", I smiled. Truth is, when I asked her out, I had no idea what I was going to do and I didn't have much time to actually plan something, so Savannah pointed out something nice and simple, what she and Chris did. Kayla just likes doing things for people so she cooked and, well, the rest was up to me. There aren't many places to go around here, so my options were limited, but I have a good feeling about this.

We started walking, we weren't going far from here, no need to use a car.

"So we're going into the woods...", she said, "are you going to kill me?"

"Well, I was thinking no...", I chuckled.

"I mean it'd be a pity now that I'm getting somewhere about my past..."

"Don't worry, we'll keep you safe", I said.

"You really think they'll come looking for me? I mean, it's not like I can do anything, I don't even know how to control this thing!"

"You can learn... If you find how to trigger it."

"Do I want to learn...?", she murmured, "Anyway, forget about it, I don't want to sulk around tonight."

"Well, here we are", I said as we arrived.

"Wow", she whispered as she looked around her in awe.

We were at a clearing, surrounded by trees. Chloe took her shoes off as she started walking on the grass in front of us.

"You like it?", I asked her.

"It's beautiful", she smiled to me.

We sat down and started eating. Kayla is an amazing cook and she always seems willing to help us out, unlike Jeremy who ignores us and the only person he cooks for is Kayla.

We were talking about pointless things, well I was mostly talking since she didn't seem that eager to talk about her past.

"You have an interesting life", she said.

"It's ok..."

"Are you kidding me? You never get bored! I wish my life was like that..."

"Believe me you don't..."

"It can't be worse than being alone..."

If there's one thing about this family, is that we're never alone, even though I do feel like it sometimes. I can't imagine how she did it though, she lost her family when she was young and she never tried to make any real relationship with other people since then, at least from what I got.

"You're not alone now", I said.

She seemed to hesitate for a second. It made sense, this was still new to her.

"I can't do this", she suddenly said as she got up.

"What do you mean?", I asked her confused as I got up too.

"I haven't told you everything about me and I can't do this to you or your family... You're all so nice. I can't be here", she started walking back.

"Wait, Chloe! What happened?"

"I'm just going to destroy your life, you don't want that! You have an amazing family, you have friends, I'm just going to ruin that for you."

"Why? If anything, we are the ones who disrupted your life!"

"What life Brian? I didn't have a life and that was better for everyone. When I tried to get one, I regretted it as did the people around me. You don't deserve that too."


"Trust me", she cut me off, "it's better" and she ran off.

Chloe's pov

Why did I even let myself get close? It'd only been two days and I'd already met and liked everyone. Didn't I learn anything from the last time? I guess I never thought I'd actually find someone who would care for me, especially someone I was destined to be with. Be someone's mate... I saw Brian turning into a wolf, I'm sorry I mean a big dog, and I still can't get it through my head.

I don't want to leave, it's been a long time since I had people around me to talk to. But I guess it's better that way. Better for everyone...

I changed back to my own clothes and went out through the back, I knew Brian was close and I knew he'd try to stop me.

I started walking, not quite sure how I'd get back on my own. We weren't that far away from the city, but I had no car and it was too late for me to walk all the way back. However I didn't stop, I couldn't stay back, it wasn't an option.

Twenty minutes later I heard something. I felt like someone was following me. Best case scenario, it's Brian, worst case, I'm dead.

"Well look at that", I heard a voice, "we've been looking for you for a while now."

"W-Who are you?", I asked him.

"A friend", he said, "and you are coming with me."

"Why would I come with you?"

He sighed. "You're boring me", was all he said as I felt a sharp pain on my head and everything turned black.


I slowly opened my eyes and jumped up on my seat. I was in the backseat of a car and that guy from earlier was driving. This can't turn out well.

I had no idea where we were, but it seemed like a different pack. Was he one of the werewolves who were supposed to be after me? I can't even control my powers!

"Welcome to Silver Moon", he said with a smirk.

Is that name supposed to mean something to me?
