Chapter 16

{Skylar}
I'm in the shower when I hear the door open. "Hello?" I ask before I poke my head out of the shower curtain. "Who is it?" I ask and my heart stops when the person comes closer to me. "Who are you?" I ask and I hear him breathing close to my ear. My heart stops when I see that it's Harry. "Why can't you just leave me alone?" I ask and he gives me a smirk. "Because I love you too much." He says and I pray that Conner shows up. "Do you not remember me?" He asks with hurt in his voice and I shake my head. "No. I've never seen you before last night." I answer quietly and he moves even closer to me. "I'm someone from your past. We were children when we first met." He says quietly and he just stares at me for a long time before he leaves me there, the way that he came. I make sure that he's gone before I get out of the bathroom. I see Conner standing there with Harry. "Skylar, who is this?" Conner asks and I take a few. steps back slowly. "Conner, that's Harry...the guy that I told you about." I say slowly and it happens so fast: I switch into my wolf form and attack Harry. He changes into his form too, and attacks me as well. "Skylar! Stop this!" He shouts and I pay him no attention whatsoever. I want Harry dead, and if I can't kill him then he'll be hurt by the end of this.

We go hard at it, and I've got to give it to him...Harry's no joke. Where his wolf is WAY bigger than mine, but I'm more cunning and quick. We just keep going at it, and I eventually get him out of the house through the window. He takes off and I fall to floor because I'm exhausted. "Are you okay, Skylar?" He asks as he cautiously looks at me. I slowly nod my head and he walks closer to me to examine my wolf. There are some cuts and bruises and other scars, but I'll be fine other than that. "You can change out of your wolf now, Skylar." He says and I do as he says. I'm crouched down on the floor naked and his eyes never leave mine. I grab a pair of black tights and an oversized sweater that belongs to him and sit down on the bed that's now ripped to shreds. "I'm really sorry about the bed, Conner." I say as he comes to sit down beside me. "It's alright. We can move into the pack house while this room gets cleaned. Are you sure that you're okay? His wolf was at least four times bigger than yours." He replies and I nod my head. "Yeah, I'm fine. Just a little hungry and tired." I answer before I pull my hair into a ponytail. We both get up and walk out of our house and go to the pack out. "Eli, where are you?" Conner calls out and he's at our side in less than five seconds(of summer!). "What can I do for you, Conner?" He asks as he gives us a slight bow. I wave my hand and smile at him kindly. "Eli, I need you to prepare a room for Skylar and I in the dungeon. Don't tell anyone about this, okay?" Conner asks and Eli nods his head excitedly before he runs off. "We're staying in the dungeon tonight?" I ask fearfully and he nods his head. "I don't like staying there either, but that's the only place where he won't find you." He says and I shudder as a memory comes back to me. "My father used to lock me in the dungeon. I'd stay there for days, and I wouldn't see anyone. I was just left all alone, but my mother would always come and rescue me." I say and he takes my hand as we walk to the packhouse. "My father used to beat me down there and that's where I would stay. My mom was my saving grace too." Conner whispers and I nod my head. We walk into the dining hall and eat before we walk down into the dungeon and fall asleep with his arms around my body.
