*UNDER EDIT* The Way It Is ONE: The Mystery...
"Are you an anihu?" He asked me quietly, gaping.
For a second, I didn't know how to answer. My hands were shaking, and I held my breath. Telling them could be really bad, or to my benefit.
Yes, I am an anihu. An animal human, someone who can shape shift into any predator. My secrets have to be kept away, for people want to kill every predator left, and that includes me.
I only nodded, and Cruzie started to back away. "But its okay, I'm not going to hurt you, you have to trust me." I told him in a stern voice.
"How do I know that? My mom always told me that it is my duty to kill anihus! That they're evil! What makes you so specail?" Cruzie demanded. His eyes flared with fear and anger.
"There is nothing that makes me special. I'm no different from them and, I know that they, like me, aren't here to harm you!" I pleaded, holding my hands out at him. Cruzie shook his head, but it was Blake who responded,
"Mom wouldn't let us kill her." Blake budged in. He stared at Cruzie with daring brown eyes, not facing me. "She's trying to help us, and if she wanted to kill us, she would be done it already."
"True." Cruzie's eyes narrowed, and he sighed. Then he shrugged and looked relaxed. "Whatever, you kill us, and I guess I'll get to be the idiot."
I chuckled, and then smiled. "Sorry to break it to you, but you're not going to be an idiot tonight."
