Thursday, November 15

On Thursday, November 15, something unusual happened. That evening, my father called for a pack meeting. It was mandatory that everyone attended. I had questioned my parents about the meeting as soon as I knew about it, but they wouldn't dare say anything to me.

"ALRIGHT QUIET!!"

I stood in between Saphira and Nathan as my friends and I all looked over at my father.

"What the hell is going on?" Nathan silently asked me.

"I don't know."

"Do you know anything about this?" Saphira asked me.

"No, I don't." And that was the truth. I had no idea what my father was talking about. Did someone die? Were we in danger?

"In a month from now, all werewolves between sixteen to twenty three will be on their way to The Other Side."

The room immediately filled with gasps and whispers.

"We're going to The Other Side?" Saphira asked.

"I guess we are," Lucian replied.

I couldn't believe it. They were actually sending us to The Other Side. Now you're probably wondering: what is The Other Side?

The Other Side is another 3D dimensional world just for werewolves. They get to live there freely without hiding or covering up who they truly are. All of us had heard stories about The Other Side, but we never expected we would get to go there. Especially as teenagers.

"Why, might I ask?" a teenage boy questioned my father.

"There is a war going on and I believe you guys have the potential to resolve it."

"Ok, this sounds super sketchy, but exciting at the exact same time," Saphira whispered to me.

"Yeah."

Going to The Other Side sounded interesting, but I had a burning question. Was I going too?

-

"Why are you sending us to The Other Side?" Lucian asked my parents as they gathered my friends and me into my father's office for a private chat.

"Zander already told you guys why. When you get there, you'll figure out what you'll need to do," my mother said.

Great like that explained a lot.

"What is it like over there?" Saphira asked with excitement.

"That's for us to know, and for you all to find out."

"What else do you want to tell us?" Blaike asked.

"Well, we want you guys to be in charge. There are about thirty five of you going there, and you five will be in charge."

"Wait, I'm going too?" I asked feeling confused.

"Yes, you will be going too," my mother stated.

"But, I'm a vampire. Are there any vampires down there?"

"No, The Other Side is a realm for werewolves only."

"So why am I going?"

"Because we don't label you as a vampire, you are one of us."

"Oh, so now I'm one of you guys. What happened to 'we don't know if you're a threat or in danger so you're on house arrest?!' "

My father excused my friends leaving my parents and me all alone.

"I'm not allowed to leave the house, but you're sending me to another dimensional world?"

"There's nothing to worry about. There will be no humans or vampires, and you'll be under protection."

"Why exactly are you sending us there?" I asked my father.

"There is a war down there, and they believe you guys can resolve it."

"How long have you known about this?"

"We were going to send you guys there regardless. Now just seems like the perfect time."

"This doesn't make any sense. What else are you guys hiding from me?"

"Leilani, maybe you should just get some rest. We can talk more tomorrow," my mother exclaimed.

I groaned before heading out of the office.

"So, are you coming with us?" Saphira asked as we both walked upstairs to our rooms.

"Yes, apparently I am..."

"You don't seem happy about it. What's wrong?"

"I'm a vampire going to another dimension filled with werewolves; people I don't even know. That's what's wrong."

After saying goodnight to my best friend and to the others I grabbed my phone and texted Elias.

Hey.

I rested my phone on my nightstand and started to get ready for bed.

After I finished washing my face, brushing my teeth, and using the bathroom, I changed out of my clothing and into a tank top and climbed into bed.

Hey.

Did anything interesting happen tonight at your packhouse? Like an announcement of some sort?

I waited for about two minutes until he replied.

Yeah, they're sending us to The Other Side.
