“ What happened after I fainted? ” I question quietly as I glance at her.
My eyes slowly move down to her neck and I notice something which I didn’t notice earlier.
The collar around her neck.
Tremors run up my body as I sit straight, placing my hand on her head and pushing it off my shoulder. The letters are imbedded in the collar in silver writing and it was supposed to be almost impossible for me to miss, but I did.
I gulp my saliva and try to see the name but she wraps her hand around it, restricting me from reading it.
I lift my gaze to hers and purse my lips.
“ What happened? ” I rest my back against the wall, my eyes fixed at Cora.
“ He came after you fainted. ” Cora sighs and removes her hand from around her neck.
My eyebrows pull together. Is she talking about Wolf?
I lower my gaze and glance at the name engraved in the collar. A lump gets stuck in my throat right away an
VIOLETI don’t understand what Wolf is trying to do, but I can feel my own anger and fear appearing.My feet don’t stop and I get closer and closer to Elias.All of a sudden, Wolf pulls Elias’ head back and I finally come to a stop. Wolf’s eyes meet mine.What are you doing?He gives a jerk to Elias’ body and it goes flying to the left, disappearing from my sight.“ ELIAS! ” I scream not caring that every single human in the room and Wolf is watching me.My body is thrown forward in shock and I sprint towards the door, but before I get to it, Wolf closes it and locks it afterwards.My hands land on the closed door and I feel the metal stinging my skin.“ What are you doing?! Elias! ” I scream through the door as I begin to bang on it.“ OPEN
VIOLETMy mouth falls half open and my eyebrows shoot up instantly. All my muscles tense up as I stare at the fire burning the building which was the pack-house before.What…Happened?“ Come on. We don’t have time for this. ” Stefan takes my hand and gives it a light squeeze.I force my gaze to meet his eyes. He is not surprised or nervous even one bit.The pack-house has went up in flames. All werewolves and…and humans inside already possibly dead and he is acting like we have far more important things to do than to see them die in the fire and turning into nothing but ashes and coal.‘ He has probably seen this a lot. ’ The voice inside my head intervenes in my thoughts and makes me realise the fact.Stefan is one of the monsters in the end. No matter if his touch is soft and almost human like…He can never feel pity, sympathy and empathy for anyone.I squeeze m
VIOLET Surprised, I look at our left. I thought she has died. Like I thought Kane has died. Veronica. I sigh and turn to look at Wolf. To my shock, Wolf, Cassius and Stefan look equally baffled. They have their eyebrows pulled up like they were not expecting to see Veronica here. My eyes shoot toward Kane and Cora who are standing too close to Veronica. Kane sneakily pushes Cora behind himself. This is an unexpected move coming from him, but I am glad he is not all too ready to throw his slave in front of that Veronica. I take in a shaky breath and steal a glance at Veronica. “ You tried to kill me. ” She accuses Wolf, ignoring everyone else altogether. My eyebrows pull together, forming a frown on my forehead. Wolf tried to kill Veronica? Why? Tension rises in the air as no one says anything for a while and Veronica seems to be burning in fire, w
VIOLETWe wait outside the cave. I don’t know why we are not moving anymore or who are we waiting for and I don’t have the courage to ask either. I know I have already tried my luck enough.Cora is often looking at me, probably wondering how I can look around so leisurely when we are standing too close to these monsters.After ten minutes pass, footsteps sound from inside the dark cave. My eyes are drawn to the cave immediately. There is a turn just a little further in the cave so it’s impossible to see who is coming unless that person rounds the corner and reveals their face.I feel my heart beginning to thump loudly in my chest. I am scared and I can’t help but feel a little curious as well. With all these confusing situations thrown my way and with a lot of questions unanswered, I am eager to find out what’s happening in this werewolf world which is too different from my simple human world I used to live i
KANEI watch my brother Wolf glaring at Melania — the elf who always saved us from the tough times with her strong magical powers.Wolf had saved her daughter from our father once. She was trespassing the forbidden garden where Wolf’s mother’s grave is situated. Melania’s daughter — Augustia had gone there to steal neelflower, the flower which can heal all injuries in moments.I don’t know why she risked her life or who she wanted to save so bad, but I do know that Wolf interfered at the last moment and saved her head.And Melania owes him for that. She has been paying her debt for quite some time and I admit that she has gotten to know a lot which is dangerous for all my brothers.“ She is different. ” Melania grits her teeth.I shift my gaze towards her. She has been trying to steal Violet’s memories for a while now. Violet has even fainted, but nothing has come out of
VIOLETJust as fast as the reflection of Melania appears, it disappears as well.I am left awed and confused. Have I even started hallucinating? I can’t tell anymore.So apparently, I remember everything. I recall Melania tried to take my memories, but I wonder why it didn’t work.I gulp and look around myself. There are people all around me. Werewolves, standing on my left. I look to my right and see them standing on my right as well.Some are eyeing me, but most of them are keeping their heads down, not looking at anything in particular.I frown. Where am I?My eyes are drawn ahead. My throat goes dry seeing the gold chair set up raised with steps.A throne?My heart begin thrumming in my chest. I lower my gaze.Slowly, small sparks travel
VIOLETMy whole body turns cold like someone has dumped a bucket of cold water on me.“ Come here. ” Katrina commands.My mind becomes fuzzy as I find myself losing control over my body. I follow her command without a second thought and stand up before marching towards her.I want to move, to do something else, to defy her but my body seems to be paralysed.Is magic finally working on me like it was supposed to do? Or is it just my fear and state of shock that I can’t bring myself to think about anything?I breath a sigh and stand in front of her. Wolf is standing to her left and to my right. He is looking at me, his eyes conveying a message that I can’t decipher.Katrina releases Wolf’s hand and pays all her attention to me. The smile never falters from her lips — it’s so heart-touching, hypnotic.I can’t look away
WOLFThey drag Violet away and I simply witness them taking her to the dungeon. My hands itch to be clenched, the anger threatening to spill out but I remain calm and resist all the urges like I am conditioned to do for a long time now.Katrina is watching me. I know.And she is getting suspicious.Katrina was supposed to try to kill Violet or at least demand for her to be made free for claims, but she surprised me when she asked me not to do it.The whole change of scenario is so fucked up.I can only imagine what Katrina wants to do to Violet or……make me do to Violet.“ You failed us yet again. You have been doing this a lot lately, my dear son. ” King Adolphus addresses me.I snap my gaze towards him.Everything was planned, but then Elias appeared out of nowhere to take Violet back. We had agreed to leave Violet with m
