Another day of boring school, Alfie decided to stay off school today to catch up on some 'work', I think he just needed some more sleep, so I was at school by myself all day. I was sat on the picnik benches watching the choas at the gates, I saw a black and white chequered bag come from the crowd, I got all excited, then I saw the blondeness of the person's hair, I was hoping it was Lewis, I missed seeing him around school and around the house, I hink about him alot latly, would he be proud of what I've become? I picked up my stuff and headed for tutor, I kept my head down most of the time, which was probably not the best of ideas. I walked into someone, we both landed on the floor, I rubbed my head as I picked my stuff up, I saw a hand helping me, I looked up. A tanned boy with dark brown hair and big brown eyes stared at me.

"Are you alright?"

"Yeah, are you?"

"Yeah, I'm Richie."

"I'm Alex."

He held out his arm, I grabbed it, he then started to help me up.

"So where you going to Alex?"

"Science."

"I'll walk you there seen as though I've just knocked you over."

I nodded, we talked all the way there, we stood outside my tutor for a while.

"Richie are new here? I've never seen you round."

"I've just moved here from..."

"Let me guess America?"

"Yeah, how did you know?"

"Are you here because of Jessica?"

He pulled me away somewhere else.

"How did you know? Do you know where she is?"

"First tell me who you are? And I will be able to tell if your lying or not."

"I'm part of the wolf clan, she upset a lot of them and I'm s'posed to find her and take her back but I'm actually here to warn her that more of us will be coming."

I looked at him, he was getting upset.

"Alright, who are you to her?"

"You could say I'm her lover."

I pulled him towards a door.

"Where you taking me?"

"I'm taking you to her."

And with that we left the school and headed home.

When we got back to the house, I went straight up to Jessica's room, Richie followed me up. I knocked on the door, no answer. I tryed again, still no answer.

"Jessica I'm coming in."

I opened the door, the room was pitch black, I turned on the light, seeing her sat in the corner.

"Jessica I brought someone who wanted to see you."

She looked up at me, Richie walked into the room, she got up and ran to him.

"Richie!"

She jumped into his arms, he hugged her tightly.

"Jessica we have to go now!"

She looked at him, her feet touching the floor, she pulled away from him.

"But I like it here."

He smiled then looked at me.

"Is it ok if I stay with her to?"

"You'll have to ask Lucy if it's ok."

"Thanks so much."

I left the room, closing the door behind me, I walked towards Alfie's room, I stopped just before his door. Something seemed weird, why would they send someone who was close to her? I ran back to her room, I slammed open the door, seeing her lying on the floor and him stood above her with a knife in his hand. I ran and pushed him away, I grabbed her hand and pulled her out of the room and down to Alfie's. I opened the door and pushed her in.

"Stay here but stay quiet Alfies a sleep."

I closed the door, I turned towards her room, I pulled out the pebble from my pocket and threw it in the air, catching the sword, I got ready for him to run out of the room. The door crashed to the floor, a big, brown wolf stood opposite me, he started to run towards me, I dodged him, cutting him with my sword. He turned back and ran at me again, I stabbed him in the leg, getting my sword stuck. He pushed me into the wall, I tried to reach my sword, he moved before i could get it, I fell to the floor, I got up and notcied a mirror. I ran and smashed it, I picked up a sharp piece and ran towards the brown wolf. I stabbed him in the back then grabbed my sword, I stabbed him again in the chest. I landed on the floor, I watched as his body transformed back into his human form. Alfie walked out of his room, Jessica behind him.

"What happened here?"

I looked at him.

"Oh so now you wake up."

He looked at me then Richie's body.

"Who's he?"

"Richie, her 'lover' from the wolf clan, he tryed to stab her."

"Oh."

I stepped over his body, he was still breathing, I walked into my room and sat down on my bed, Alfie walked in and sat next me, I fell back, lying down on my bed, Alfie copied.

"So I'm guessing you didn't stay at school for long."

I laughed a little.

"No, so how's the 'work' coming along?"

He laughed a little too.

"Yeah, it's coming on fine."

I looked at him, he looked at me, his hand touched my cheek, his lips touched mine, I closed my eyes, he pulled away, opening my eyes, I looked up at the ceiling, we fell a sleep 5 minutes later. An hour went by, when Alfie woke me up.

"It's dinner time."

We walked down together, it was silent, like always, Jessica spent the rest of the night in her room crying, I spent mine with Alfie in his room, I fell a sleep in his bed, nothing or no one will ever take him away from me.
