This is set after "The Reckoning" by Kelley Armstrong. I started it because I want this series to continue, and I hope that people who feel the same way will enjoy it!
Chloe, Derek, Simon and Tori all seem to be safe with Kit and Lauren...but are they really?
|I saw Derek fall beside me.
"Derek!" I gasped in horror, dropping down beside him.
He blinked his eyes warily, "I think I got shot."
"No kidding," I laughed nervously, noticing the blood dripping from his leg.
Derek looked at his leg and then back at me, panic in his eyes.
"They're over here!" I hear someone shout to our right.
Derek looks at me and pushes me up.
"Go, I'll be okay."
"You really think I'd do that?" I laugh humourless.
"A guy can try," he muttered, trying to get up.
I looked around at our surroundings, looking for a hiding spot that would fit both of us. I see a clump of bushes and point them out to Derek.
He nods and crawls over, blood dripping from his leg. Pushing through, he reaches for me.
Once we're out of sight, I take a look at his bullet wound. My eyes widen when I see how bad it is. I take my sweater off and rip off the sleeve. I wrap the sleeve around Derek's leg and inspect it. No blood drips through so I take that as a good sign, although he'll need stitches.
Derek pulled me closer as the voices drew nearer.
"Can you see them?" A radio cracks.
"No," a female voice says right in front of us, "But I saw them go this way."
I pushed myself deeper into the bush, careful not to bump into Derek as I go.
A flashlight shines around us, then lands directly where we're sitting. Derek shifts uncomfortable next to me, afraid she found us.
"Chloe," the woman says... |
