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 one that involves seeing Angel. However, she did not mind getting some compensation for the trauma her parents put her through for an entire month.
"Do you want to take a guess?" Mr. Wright asked as he strived to get his daughter excited when he noticed the depression in her expression.
"Not really. It's fine if you guys can tell me." Snow said without looking at the disappointment on her dad's face.
"We are going camping in the woods tonight." Her mother shouted with an enthusiastic tone.
"Snow, all you ever wanted and nag us about for your birthday gift was camping in the woods. We decided to give you an early birthday gift, so why are you not happy?"
"Thank you, mom and dad. I love you guys present, and it means the world to me. It is everything that I ever wanted." Snow said before giving her parents a bright smile, then put her attention back on her phone.
"Honey, why do I feel like her words have irony in them?" Mrs. Wright whispered to her husband.
"Let us let her be for now. I am certain she will come around. For now, let's get stuff ready for camp tonight. I am sure once she's outside and notices the beauty of nature and the full moon tonight, she will change her attitude." Mr. Wright mumbled back.
"Breakfast is ready. You should come downstairs and grab something to eat." Mrs. Wright stated.
"Okay. Thanks, mom." Snow responded without moving her eyes from her phone.
The moment her parents stepped out of the room, Snow let out a deep sigh of relief.
"Who knew pretending not to be irate while you were still angry could be so exhausting," she mumbled.
She gazed one last time at her blank phone screen before dropping the device on the bed.
"Angel doesn't even have a phone. What an old-fashioned human being." Snow said.
Snow looked down at her stomach and giggled before getting out of bed and heading into the bathroom.
"I know that you want food, stomach. But I need to clean up first before heading downstairs." She said as she stared at her face in the mirror.
'I can't believe that I am going to be eighteen and graduating next month. Oh well, at least September is going to be better than last month."' Snow mumbled then before picking up her toothbrush.
A few minutes later, she was out of her bathroom and back in her room. It did not take her much effort to find clothes and get dressed. Feeling satisfied with her look, Snow headed to the dining room.
'Do we have to keep Angel and Snow apart? We have no evidence that he is one of them." Mr. Wright said to his wife, who seemed anxious about Snow being ungrounded.
"I swear that I have seen similar eyes like those before. I don't know, but every time I see that boy, he reminds me about our last mission and the blood that got shared." Mrs. Wright replied with fear in her eyes.
"Honey, you are acting paranoid. That battle took place seventeen years ago. They lost people, and we did the same. I don't think anyone still remembers that battle."
"I do. If I recall it, then maybe others will do too. To be honest, that battle was too bloody for anyone to not be remembered by others."
"What battle are you guys talking about?" Snow asked as she walked into the dining room.
"The world war two." Mr. Wright hastily replied before letting out an awkward laugh.
"Okay, you guys are acting weird." Snow stated, then took her seat at the table.
"Enough talk about the war. Let's eat and afterward start setting up for the trip." Mrs. Wright said.
"Happy birthday, Angel." Mr. William said when he entered Angel's room and saw him resting in bed.
"Thank you," Angel mumbled as he stared at the blank ceiling.
He did not sleep the entire night. His body and mind had been awake for the longest hours, yet he could not decide on which option to choose.
"Today is the day." Mr. William said as he sat on the edge of the bed.
"I know," Angel replied.
After nine years, the time has finally reached for him to complete his mission and prove to his people that he is capable of taking his father's place as the next leader of the clan.
"I am glad that you understand your task. Your parents are proud of you as they watch from above." Mr. William stated.
"UMM." Angel answered.
At six-thirty, Snow and her parents were in their car and on their way to the campsite.
"Snow, do you want to start your favorite camping song?" Mr. Wright asked his daughter after seeing her frown from the v-mirror.
"No, dad. I don't." Snow replied.
"Okay, then. I am just going to drive in silence."
Snow gazed outside of the car window, and the cold air hit against her face.
"Wow! Look, Snow! The moon is bright tonight." Mr. Wright announced a few minutes later, after catching a glance at the sky.
"Yeah, it is stunning." Snow said with a smile.
'I wonder if Angel is also admiring the moon.' She thought.
At Mr. William's home, Angel gazed at the moon from his bedroom window and frowned.
"Angel, it's time." Mr. William said from the doorway.
"I know. I have already picked up her scent. The Wright are on their way to the trial woods. I guess tonight is the night. Please give me a few minutes to myself."
"Mom and dad, do I have to go through with this? Is this what I need to do to be like you, dad? Well, I hope you guys will rest in peace and be proud of me after I do this." Angel mumbled after Mr. William had left the room.
“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
"Snow! Oh, my poor baby." An elderly lady walked into the room with tears in her eyes.She rushed over to the hospital bed and sat down beside Snow before giving her a big hug."Aunt Felecia, uncle Mark, and Kelvin, what are you guys doing here?" Snow asked as she stared at the faces of her neighbors."I invited them here. It's been two weeks since you've been in the hospital. I got a hold of your information yesterday from my colleague, Janvier, and I have already gotten in touch with your family members. I thought it would be a good thing for you to see familiar faces since you have been alone in the hospital." Joe said.Snow looked at Alvin, Derrie, Joe, Felecia, Mark, Kelvin, and the doctor, then she sighed from the frustration that she was feeling inside."I don't mean to be rude, but the only faces I want to see now are my parents. As you said, it had been two w
