Chapter 2

STELLA

I wake up with a groan as I hear a bang on the door

“Stella!! Stella!! Time to get up...” 

I sit up and look around at all the packing I did last night, I get up and head to the bathroom, have a quick shower. I forgot to take my clothes in with me so I walked out of the bathroom with my towel around me to bump into a guy

“Sorry...” I feel two hands grab my upper arms stopping me from falling

“Good morning Stella!”

I look up and see that it is Benjamin, “Good morning, what are you doing here?”

“We are here to help you two move..”

That’s when I look around and see that the house is full of men, I quickly put my hands to my towel making sure it was fully around me and nothing was showing. I pull back out of his hands embarrassed and move quickly into my room, shutting the door behind me. I quickly get dressed, when there is a knock on the door

“Stella, are you dressed? Can we start taking your stuff out?”

I walk over to the door and open it to find Benjamin, “Sure” I say as I step back, go over to my bed and sit down as five other men make their way into my room and within about five minutes the room was bare. I look around the room and ask

“Benjamin? What will I doing when we get there?”

“It is mainly a cleaning job for the big boss.” I looked at him a little worried as he continues

“Don’t worry Stella! Axel is a simple man as long as you stay out of his way, don’t look him in the eyes and if he tells you to do something then you do it straight away. One of the females will give you a run down of what you will need to do once you get there.”

I am still a little worried about this big boss and what did he mean by females, I guess I will find out Sunday evening. I go to say something else when we hear my dad call “Stella, time to go!”

I get up and grab my backpack, look around the room once more when I see my phone still sitting on my bedside table, I walk over and pick it up before turning around and bumping into Benjamin again who had moved up behind me. Again he stops me from falling over wrapping his arms around me, he then pulls back a little moving his hand to the piece of my fringe that likes to escape my pony tail, running it back and forth through his fingers as he whispers

“The boss is really going to love you!!”

I didn’t get a chance to say anything in return as he stepped back, turns around and walked out of my room, I shake my head thinking that was really weird. I look at my phone and see that it is just after 7am and if I don’t move I will have dad yelling at me to hurry up. I walk out my bedroom door and close it behind me, making my way out the front and into the car where I end up waiting for dad.

It isn’t long before dad gets into the car and we are on our way, I send a text to both Macy and Whytt ‘Sorry I didn’t get to say goodbye, but dad got a last minute promotion and we have to be there for him to start work on Monday’

I know I wont get a reply from Macy until late afternoon as the weekend is her relaxing days when she spends her time in bed sleeping unless we have worked out to go to the mall together, Whytt on the other hand is probably awake but just lazing in bed. I smile as I get almost an instant reply from Whytt

‘What do you mean say goodbye?’

‘My dad’s new promotion is in the town that is a day and a half’s drive and he must start on Monday’

‘Well that sucks! What am I meant to do now?’

I smile ‘Probably whatever you would normally do or what you use to do before you decided that I was going to be your friend. Just promise me that you will not go to that party tonight with Savannah, you know she only wants one thing and then will make fun of you with her friends at school on Monday.’

‘Well that’s not good I was really bored on the weekends until I met you and no promises’

‘Whytt please don’t fall for her lies. I will come visit, that is if you want me to come back and visit?’

‘Of course I would want that. Why didn’t you text last night I would have come round and helped?’

‘I was too upset with dad.’ My phone beeps at me just after I press the send button and I frown...That’s so not fair I hate the country roads, no cell service I just hope there is service in the town we will be going to. I then turn

“Dad what is the name of this town we are going to?”

“It is called White Wolves!”

“Are you sure? I have never heard of it.”

“Yep, It’s where the big boss of the company is based.”

I just nod, look back out the window and sigh.

I must have doze off as the next thing I know is that dad is shaking my shoulder,

“Sweetheart we are stopping for lunch, did you want something?”

I stretch and look around, “Yeah dad that sounds good, just a ham salad sandwich will do.”

He nods and gets out of the car, I try and stretch again but it was too confined in the car so I open my door and get out. I close the door, stretch and look around a bit more. There isn’t much around so I go for a short walk across the road and into a field, I close my eyes and take a few deep breaths, I can’t believe how fresh everything is out here. I open my eyes and scan the horizon when I see a bush not too far away with some beautiful flowers on it, I walk over to the bush and pick a couple of the flowers, bringing them to my nose I breath in deep again smiling at the wonderful fragrance. I then lift my eyes to the horizon again and freeze as I see a silhouette of a wolf off in the distance, it doesn’t seem to be doing anything but watching, I know not to run or it will chase me so I keep the flowers to my nose playing that I hadn’t seen it and slowly take a few steps backwards. I look down momentarily to see where I am putting my feet so I don’t fall over but when I look back up the silhouette is gone, it isn’t running towards me which is a good thing, so I guess it went the other way. I then turn and head back to the car where I see dad just coming out of the gas station with lunch. We sit on the bonnet of the car, eat and then head off on our way.

Once we are back on the road I continue to watch out the window as I am sure that there is a wolf either following us or travelling along side us. Our next stop is at a Motel diner, where we ate some dinner and then rented a room for the night as we entered the room I could have sworn I heard a wolf howl and saw a glimpse of that silhouette again. It is a little creepy but I shrug it off, head into the room and throw myself onto one of the beds, I look at my phone and sigh as I see that I have no bars which means that I can’t even say goodnight to my friends and Macy would have only received the one message from me early this morning and probably now thinks that I am ignoring her, I was also hoping to talk to Whytt and make sure he didn’t go to that party with Savannah but then I don’t know when I will be back and he may be able to change her ways... Hah I don’t think so. I really hope there is cell service in this town we are going to.
