I ran for what seemed like hours in the forest, and I kept going deeper. I knew where our territory ended, but I kept running. I wasn't going to go on to Midnight Moon's territory, but I was going to get as far away from everyone as possible.

I stopped at a river bank and shifted into my human form. I sat down on a huge rock and let my wolf take a rest. I didn't want to push it, since it does effect me as well.

It scared me at how ready I was to kill Tyler and Tristan just for what they said. Usually I just would have been beyond pissed, but the wolf in me took that anger to the next level. I could never really kill a person unless they were asking for it. I'd just mildly hurt them or put them in the hospital for a couple years. Nothing too big.

It seemed it was getting harder to control. I know being a werewolf is hard, but I never had a problem controlling it before today. Maybe it was just because of the whole new mate thing. Everything was just dumped on me in an hour period, so I was probably just in shock. Nothing I couldn't handle.

I thought back to Brooke and how I snapped at Tristan. I didn't mean to snap, it just came out. I didn't want her to see that.

I was spiked with adrenaline again, and I wanted to shift again. I tried to bury it down, but before I could I heard footsteps. Thinking it was a hunter, I began running. I didn't know how much I could hold my wolf back, but seeing a threat would push me into shifting and attacking. And I don't want that on my conscious.

"Hayley!" I heard Brooke yell. "Hayley, it's me! It's alright!"

"Go away!" I yelled, stopping and hiding behind a tree. "I'm fine!"

"Do you want to talk about it?" she asked.

"No!" I said and cursed myself for being so rude. She was my best friend and was just trying to help. But I didn't really have any control over my actions at the moment. I could only stop myself from hurting her and controlling half of what I said.

"What's wrong?" she asked, her voice coming closer.

I moved away from her. "Just, stay away, Brooke! I can't control what I do at the moment, and I don't want to hurt you!"

"You won't hurt me," she said. "Your wolf is just under a lot of pressure at the moment and is hard to control."

"How the hell would you know?" I snarled and covered my mouth. "I'm sorry, it's my wolf talking. Just go before I say something you don't want to hear."

"Hayley, you need to let it out. It's not good to keep it all caged in. Get rid of some of that anger."

I closed my eyes and forced my wolf down. "Brooke, I never let you see this side of me for a reason. I keep it caged, so its my secret side. No one needs to see this side of me."

"You have to let someone see this side of you. Your anger and hatred towards Tyler is just going to make it worse for you."

"Just stay away!" I screamed and pressed my hands to my head. "I can't control it, Brooke!"

"Yes, you can." She was by me now.

I stood up and darted to the side, looking at her through my wolf's eyes. "Stay away from me! This beast in me is ugly, and I can't hold it in! It's scratching on the walls, and it's going to break out. So just run and get the hell away from me before I do something I regret."

"But Hayley-"

"NOW!" I turned and sprinted deeper into the woods, far from Brooke. I sent her an apology through our mind link, and I shifted into my wolf. My paws thudded on the ground, and I ran faster than I thought possible.
