The tension in the Wright's home was intense in the living room, as Snow strived to hold back her anger and reason with her mother.
"Mom, you can't be serious." She cried.
The next few minutes, Snow's face got soaked with tears, and she could not help herself from breaking down.
"I am dead serious, Snow. Until you learn to respect us and decide to stay away from that boy, this will be your punishment." Mrs. Wright announced.
Snow folded her hand in a fist as the anger she felt seemed to increase rapidly along with her fear of not being able to see Angel for an entire month.
"Mom, please. Don't do this to me." She uttered in a trembling voice.
Mrs. Wright could see the devastation on her daughter's face, which made her more determined to keep Angel and Snow apart. She did not want Snow being with someone that she is willing to choose first above others, including herself.
She knew the task that was waiting for her daughter in the future was one that needed Snow to be strong-hearted.
Since Snow is closer to the age that will make her eligible to enter the family line of work, Mrs. Wright could not allow her daughter to have any weaknesses, and she feared that Angel could be a risky weakness for Snow to have because they knew nothing about him.
"Honey, we won't be discussing this issue again. Your dad and I won't accept him to be your friend. You can use this one month to meditate on your behavior and if his friendship is worth all the trouble that it is causing between us as a family." Mrs. Wright explained.
"Mom! Angel and I have been friends for nine years, and he has never hurt me or brought harm to me. If anything, I am the guilty one. Please don't ruin our friendship." Snow pleaded.
She felt desperate and frustrated at the same time. She was exhausting all of her options and words to tell her mother to make her understand that Angel was one of the important person in her life, yet Mrs. Wright was not giving in to her plea.
"You and Kelvin have been friends longer than that. But I don't see you want to be with him like the way you desire to be with that boy. Also, the only reason your dad and I allowed you to be friends with him was that you were young at that time. Later, you kept on rebelling against our warning of you not seeing him, and that's another reason while you guys are still friends." Mrs. Wright explained.
"Don't ground me, mom. I promise to be on my best behavior. I won't cause trouble for you and dad." Snow begged when she realized that she had lost the argument.
"I am sorry. However, your dad and I are doing this for your own good and protection."
"Fine! I accept getting grounded! But know that I dislike you guys, and I will not quit being friends with Angel. So I hope dad and you are ready to keep me in my room forever."
After screaming these words at her mother, Snow raced up the stairs and into her room, then slammed the door. She leaned against the wooden door and allowed herself to break down and cry.
"Angel, is that you?" Mr. William said when he heard his front door open.
After a few seconds passed with no response from the person that entered the house, Mr. William became alarmed and stood up from his seat.
"Yeah, it's me. You don't need those claws," Angel said after he met the old man in the living room.
"You have to stop sneaking into this house like that." Mr. William replied as his claws shifted back to human nails.
"It's not like I can announce my presence at the front door since people are not allowed to know that I can speak. You and the other elders were the ones that made that dumb rule anyway, so why are you scolding me for being silent."
"Yeah, but it is for our sake because we don't need people asking you unnecessary questions that may lead them to suspect us. Nobody would question a mute person, and that makes it a perfect cover for you. I am your adopted father and you are a mute boy that I found, that's the only information people need to learn about us."
"Who knew having two identities would be this tiring?"
Angel walked past Mr. William and took a seat on the sofa. He then let out a deep sigh.
"What happened to you?" Mr. William asked when he noticed the bloodstains on Angel's shirt.
"Nothing," Angel replied, striving to dismiss the subject.
"You got into a fight with that boy Kelvin again."
"I can guess that it was because of Snow once again?"
Angel did not respond. He knew that his silence and his words would still give the same answer.
"You are going to be the next leader of our clan. You can't have a mere human beating you. What will happen if our people hear about this?"
"I could kill him. You know my strength is not something Kelvin can handle. Using force on him will only leave his bones broken. Also, he's Snow's friend, and hurting him may leave me in her bad book."
"Don't forget why we are here. The other elders and I have turned a blind eye to the relationship that you have with that girl because you had the trust of one member of the Wright family, which is beneficial for your mission. But over the years, the closeness you have with her has made a few of the elders uncomfortable."
Angel frowned after hearing Mr. William's remark. Everything was getting too complicated for him to handle at such a critical moment in his life. His head and heart were at war, and he got left with two options and one choice.
"As you said, I am your future leader, and I don't need some old dudes telling me what to do or how to go about my business. I will complete my mission, okay!" Angel harshly stated.
He got up from the sofa and was about to leave the living room when Mr. William's voice stopped him.
"I hope so. Your eighteenth birthday is one month from now. The moon will be full, and your strength will increase. Get rid of the entire Wright family on that day and complete your mission. Don't fail your parents."
Angel shut his eyes for a second as the sentence, "You have to get rid of the entire Wright family on that day and complete your mission," sunk into his ear.
He felt a piercing pain in his chest, but he ignored it and kept on walking without giving a response to the old man's statement.
"Knock!"The tapping sound coming from Snow's room door did not draw her attention. Instead, she remained rested in bed and continued listening to her music.The doorknob turned, the door opened, and Mr. Wright walked into his daughter's room alongside his wife."Snow, It's been one month, and you have served your punishment." Mr. Wright sweetly said."UMM." Snow replied, then when back to staring at her phone.The past month was the hardest for her. She did not eat properly, sleep soundly, and her mind remained stressed with thoughts about Angel's whereabouts and his well-being."Your dad and I want to reward you for the excellent behavior you have shown over the past month," Mrs. Wright stated in excitement."Okay?" Snow said without any care in her words.The only reward that she would be excited about is the
“Waaaaaahhhhhhh.” The woods seemed disturbed by the sound of ambulances and police vehicles.The cold air remained chilly, and mother nature appeared calm. Darkness ceases the glow of the moonlight. Beneath the cloudy sky where the flashlight lights the bared ground, lays the bodies of two individuals.Their flesh and bones remained scattered on the icy grass, and blood painted the land red and black.“Blargh,” a police puke from the horror of the scene.“This is mess up. Whoever killed them is a beast and not a human.” She stated while wiping the remaining puke from her mouth with her hand.“Frightening incidents occur in these woods. Still, I have never seen something this horrifying.” Her co-worker responded to the police statement.“This is the kind of jumble you d
Snow clutched onto Derrie's hand as he held her in his arms and walked over to Alvin. She opened her eyelid one last time before fainting in his hand."Are you okay, kid?" Alvin asked when he saw how bloody Snow seemed.He looked at Snow's face and had a bad feeling that something was not right with her."Why isn't she replying?" He asked his partner after waiting for a while but got no response from Snow."I don't know. I mean, she was talking just now. Kid?" Derrie shouted but got no reply from Snow."Damn it!" He called out, then began to walk at a fast pace when he realized that Snow was running a fever."What?" Kelvin shouted as he chased after his friend.“Help! She fainted in my arms, and her temperature is increasing.” Derrie screamed as he approached his teammates.“Get her into the ambulanc
Once the ambulance stopped at the OK hospital parking lot, Alvin and the others did not waste any time in getting Snow out of the vehicle and onto the stretcher."Is she still breathing?" Joe asked when he stared at Snow's pale face. Angel walked into the house he once called home. Yet today, it felt like a death trap. He switched on the light to brighten the darkness in the living room, then saw Mr. William seated calmly on the sofa."How dare you show your face back here after your betrayal? The task was simple! Keep your watch on the Wright family, and when the full moon rises on your eighteenth birthday, kill them. How could you mess up something that simple?" Mr. William said in rage."Mr. and Mrs. Wright are dead. Isn't that what you guys wanted?" Angel replied.He got alarmed and defensive when he smelled the killer aroma coming from Mr. William."But the girl is not dead, and it's all because you put your emotion above your people. The task was that none of the Wright family should be alive yet because of your involvement in the situation we have one member still breathing!" Mr. William uttered.He go

It was five o'clock in the morning, and Joe was driving to the hospital to check on Snow when he got a call from his subordinate."Good morning, Melvin." Joe said while keeping his focus on the road."Sir, this morning is not a good one." Melvin's distressed voice came almost as a whisper."What happened?" Joe asked as he tried to keep calm and hoped that the news Melvin had could be something that they could handle."The corpses are gone." Melvin's voice echoed through the phone, sounding a bit creaky."What!" Joe screamed as he pressed his foot on the brake which caused the police vehicle to stop abruptly."I am as shocked as you are." Melvin stated, and Joe could hear the frustration in Melvin's words, and he knew that this news was something beyond him and his subordinates."Tell me what happened?" Joe uttered as he allowed hims
Snow sat there on the hospital bed, staring at the policemen with confusion in her every gaze. She could not find the words to express her thoughts, so she waited for them to say something."Hey, Snow. How are you doing?" Alvin said in a childish manner.Snow intensely stared at him in dismay. She found the friendliness in his tone to be extremely uncomfortable."Who are you guys, and where are my parents?" Snow softly asked after gaining the strength to speak."Sir, this is bad. The two corpses could be this kid's parents. We should be careful with how we handle her from here and question her before we trigger any traumatic memories that may cause her mental instability." Derrie whispered to Joe."I know that. But my biggest fear right now is the fact that Snow doesn't seem to remember what happened." Joe mumbled with concern in his eyes."We are officers."
"I knew it was you, Ax. I could smell the stink from afar!" Angel said in disgust after he had walked into the alley and saw a young man with silver eyes."Haha, I see you still hate me. Still, that's no way to talk to your older cousin. You know we had some good childhood memories." Ax said in a humorous and yet dangerous manner."I think that you might be confusing me with another wolf because if my memories serve me right, you were my worst bully." Angel said with hate in his eyes.Ax smiled, but it was not a friendly one. Instead, his smile was crafty and creepy."And you are still the same. Acting like a chicken, and always messing up the simple tasks given to you by the elders, and I have been the one continuously cleaning up your shits for you." Ax harshly stated."Why? Don't you enjoy being those old fools' puppy? Always nipping at their heels for praise and being an obed
