Sara and I walked made our way through the forest. Our paws slammed on the ground. The pack house is now a few miles away. I could hear the rushing water ahead of us so we picked up our pace. My heart pounded in my chest as I went over my plan one more time. My only hope was that Azreal would come through. If he didn't the plan would go to shit. But then again if it did work I could be losing my best friend, as well as any trust she has in me. Not to mention Ian will not ever let me out of sight after this.

We finally got down to the creek. Looking around I scented the air and let out a huff. He wasn't here. Sara had stopped by the bank of the creek and was drinking. I walked over and did the same. I let the cool water run down my throat and tried to calm my racing heart.

"Your right this does make me feel better. I feel as if I can think a little clearer now."

"Good" I said as I flopped down by the bank of the creek.

Sara came and sat beside me. I rolled onto my side and looked across the creek and stared into the woods. As I stared I saw something shift in the forest. I peered harder into the woods and that's when I saw them. Malik was standing behind a large oak about 20 feet away from the other side of the creek. Our gazes locked and he nodded sharply. I just gave him a wolfy wink.

"We should swim it's super hot out." I said standing up and walking over to the edge of the water dipping my paws in.

Sara stood and followed me into the water. It rushed over my fur cooling my skin. She followed close behind me as we sank farther into the water. I looked off into the distance and saw that Malik was slowly closing in. Closer and closer I guess Azreal told him the plan.

"Sarah?" I asked her.

"Yeah Evelyn? "

"I'm sorry that this is happening to you but you know I'll support you with anything."

"I know and thank you for that. I don't think anyone could ever have a better friend than you." She said.

At that my heart clenched with guilt. And with ought having anytime to process Malik and his wolves sprang from there hiding places and launched themselves at Sara. I backed away from her as they surrounded her making no move against them. She looked at me terrified and confused. She let out a howl of fear as the moved in on her. She crouched  down into a defensive stance and growled. Her eyes darted around in fear.

My eyes locked with Malik and nodded. He growled low at her and turned his harsh gaze to her.

"Your coming with us. Where you will be safe." He said.

"Like hell I'm going with you. Evelyn run get help."

But I just looked at her ashamed and unmoving. He looked at me and I could see the fear in her eyes.

"Sara it will be ok please just go with them. I promise I will explain everything to you as soon as I can." I said as I pleaded with her.

"What are you talking about Everlyn? What's going on? What did you do?"

"Everything will be ok I promise just go with Malik."

"No." She said.

"Fine. Malik do whatever you have to. Make sure she gets home safely and quickly. " I said as I turned by back on my best friend and ran back to the pack house.
