Chapter 5 - Marcy

Marcy's POV

"What do you mean he was killed by rogues?!" I heard Jake yell from the living room, pulling me into consciousness. I slowly sat up and my arm throbbed, I suddenly remembered everything that had happened.

Blimey, that hurt.

Suddenly I smelt the salt of tears and could hear someone lightly sniffling from the other room.

She whimpered and the smell of salt got stronger just before she spoke, "They attacked in his sleep and killed him. I don't know why, but they didn't even touch Samantha. Jake... It hurts so much. Make it stop, please!" My mum whispered out. Mum? Who were they talking about that was killed by rouges? Who is Samantha and why is mum in pain?

Mum's in pain! She must have been hurt by rogue.

I jumped out of bed, still wearing my clothes from school Monday when I was attacked, and ran into the living room. Jake was pacing around, he looked worried and stressed, and my mum was crumpled on the floor crying and holding her chest like she had been stabbed. I ran to her and tried to help her get up and to the pack doctor's office so he could help her but she only sobbed more, and I noticed there were no signs of injuries anywhere on here, not even the scent of rouge.

"Mum? What's wrong Mum? What happened?" I asked anxiously as I tried to shake her out of her trance. Jake's head snapped in my direction and he ran to me, pulling me away from her.

"Mar, I need you to go get Garret, then go to my room. Don't come back here, got it?" He asked, giving me a serious look.

"What's going on, what happened?" I asked, I was seriously starting to get shook up, "Jake what in the bloody hell is going on!" I screamed.

"I'll explain everything later, just trust me for now. You need to get Garret, please; it's for your mother." Jake gave me a pleading look as he pushed me into the foyer and towards the stairs to get Garret. I gave him a sad look and glanced at my mother one more time before running up the stairs.

Once I got to the third floor, the floor where Jake and Garret's rooms were, I could no longer hear my mother's cries, which both scared me and comforted me at the same time. I knocked on Garret's door until he opened it.

"Garret, Jake needs you. It's for my mom, something's gone wrong. Please..." I whimpered and tears rushed down my face. Garret ran past me and down the stairs as he pulled a shirt on and cursed under his breathes.

I desperately wanted to go and help, or just find out what was wrong, but I knew it wouldn't help; I needed to go to Jake's room and wait until he came up here to explain like he had told me to do. He was my alpha, so I really didn't have a choice either, if I went against him I could be kicked out of the pack but Jake would never go to such measures.

Looking around the room I noticed Jake's calendar said today was Wednesday, I had been sleeping for a whole two days!

And with that thought, every muscle in my body started aching to shift and run, but I knew Jake would have my head if I went out, especially after my little visit with the vampire girl.

"Marcy, Marcy wake up." Jake said as he shook me awake, I must've dozed off.

"I'm awake, I'm up!" I said as I jumped up, looking around frantically, "Where's my Mum? What's wrong with her? Spill." I said, glaring at Jake. He was hiding something from me and I knew it.

"Marcy, you've been asleep for almost three straight days, why don't you go out and take a run, maybe catch a rabbit for dinner or something for a little while so your wolf can get out and stretch?" He asked, looking genuinely concerned for me.

My wolf mentally whimpered, I did need a good run and hunting would help me clear my mind, get my thoughts in order.

"I guess, but when we come back you're going to tell me everything. Come on." I said as I opened the window and jumped out, shifting midair. My clothes tore off me, there goes that outfit. I watched from the ground in wolf form for Jake to come out. It felt nice being in wolf, you were only supposed to go that long not in wolf if you were in heat or pregnant, which I wasn't either.

A few minutes later Jake's big brown wolf jumped down from the window and landed next to me with a thud. I nipped his ear then took off running; I knew I could out run him. It was weird I could out run him, since he was the alpha and I was just an omega, but females were typically faster and who knows, maybe I had a little alpha or beta blood in me.

Jake ran after me, a few times he got close enough to bite my tail and pull me back but I always found a way to get away from him, well that was until he jumped on me and pinned me down. I snorted and licked his muzzle to show him I gave up before he let me up, we had played this game since I turned fifteen and first shifted.

"Marcy, we need to get home. The doctor needs to talk to you." Jake said through the mind link, he sounded worried so I simply nodded and started walking back towards the pack house.

Next time I was going to win our game.

We arrived at the pack house around thirty minutes later, since we were in no hurry to make it home and I got distracted by a squirrel about half way to the house and decided to hunt it, which added ten more minutes. I usually didn't hunt for entertainment, but my wolf needed to get out and be free for a while and that was one of the best ways to let her.

As we got closer to the house we both shifted back and pulled on some clothes hidden out in the woods.

"What does he need to talk to me about? Is it about Mum?" I asked, I was starting to get anxious.

"Yeah, let's not talk about it though. It's not my place to tell you." Jake told me.

We walked into the house and Jake went upstairs to his office to work on some alpha stuff. I went straight to the doctor's office. I was in no way what-so-ever excited to be seeing him again, especially considering how things had gone last time I saw him, but I really just wanted my mum to be okay. I hope she wasn't attacked, she was getting old and I don't know if she could survive that.

"Ah Marcy, please have a seat." The doctor instructed me and I did as I was told. I looked around and didn't see my mother anywhere, so she must be back in her room.

"You wanted to talk to me?" I ask, raising my eyebrows slightly.

"Yes, about your mother. Let's get right to it shall we? You see, your Mum will be okay eventually, but she's on bed rest right now, so I need you to make sure she doesn't get up, she doesn't need any weight on her legs right now."

"Okay, but what's wrong with her? What happened?" I asked, my nerves and curiosity getting the best of me.

"Well, Marcy your father is dead. He was killed by a rogue wolf while you were at school Monday. Your Mum's wolf felt it and took over, she ran all the way to Paris in effort to help your father, but wasn't able to make it. When she got there, she was attacked by a few vampires that were nearby and she got quite a good bit of bites from them, along with a few broken ribs and both her feet. For the next few days she's going to be in a great deal of pain since not only is she suffering from that, she's also suffering from losing her mate. I expect a full recovery within the next week or so, but go easy on her. She won't be the same for a good bit of time, if ever. Losing a mate can affect a person Marcy; she might not even be able to shift again." He told me.

My dad was killed? I didn't even know him, or anything about him, and now he's gone.

And on top of that, Mum might not even be able to shift again, ever, along with the fact that, even though doctor doesn't think it will happen, there's a chance I could lose her.

No wonder Jake wouldn't tell me, I probably would've blacked out right there in the woods.

"Thank you for telling me, I'll take care of her." I say as I stand up and walk out to the woods, I needed to run again.
