After our discussion we called it quits and went to our rooms deep in thought. What felt like minutes turned into hours and I decided to go out on the porch for some fresh air. Peering around I spot Felix and take a seat by him, neither of us speak not wanting to break the peace. With the fresh air and silence I drift to sleep, dreaming of Grayson and him telling me to leave things be. While my mind tells me to listen to my heart tells me otherwise. Then it transitions to something worse...Grayson's back but he is totally different. Instead of his beautiful smile there's a snarl and his whole body is covered with severe scars. His eyes hold a lifeless look and holds no love for me anymore. I want to get away from him but he has my arm in an iron grip. Then his whole body begins to shake and the edges of his body begin to blur, then he's a wolf. This hits me like a ton of bricks, he's the one who attacked me and didn't kill me.
Waking up I snap out of the strange dream and go to his room to find that he isn't there. I go to the kitchen and find a note, " I had to go get some things for you and I wasn't sure when you'd wake. You've been out for weeks and I'm beginning to worry. So of top of getting some things for you I'm bringing someone here to help if its needed. Yours, Felix. " Shrugging it off I go back to the room and snuggle back under the covers and go to grab a book off of the night stand. Instead I feel a hand grip my wrist and I try with all of strength to get them to let go but I can't. Looking over I see that its someone I've never met and I yelp. " Hush child it's alright, I'm here because I'm a friend of Felix's. An I'm here to help you, but it seems you won't need much since your now awake. " I look around wildly for Felix and find him by the window. Instantly my worry melts away and he spins around, to my disbelief he has tears in his eyes. Seeing this I jump out of bed and throw my arms around his neck and he stiffens. Pulling away I look away from him ashamed that I would even think he cared for me. The things he's done could've just been an act all along.
Tears blur my vision but I can't help it I thought he cared for me, yet it seemed it was only me. " Willa I'm sorry it's just you took me by surprise. " With this I throw my arms back around his neck, and feel my mood lighten. " So are you ready to truly go running or maybe lift weights. " he laughs. Nodding my head, grabbing his hand eagerly and him outside. This woman stays behind and before he even has time to react I take off running. Laughing as I go I watch the trees, which to me as mere smears of color. Tackled to the ground Felix tries to pin me but I'm too quick for him. So he is the one that winds up on the ground struggling. Yet the person isn't Felix but the woman and she looks frightened and incapable of speech. In horror I let go and bump into someone, " Lon time no see my dear. " he purrs.
Spinning around my eyes dart to his face and I cringe, this isn't my Grayson. He lacks the warmth and he's badly scarred, quickly I jump back before his hands grasp my throat. Without any thought my bodies on alert and itching to shift and with one single thought I'm a wolf. The pain is unbearable when I shift but once it's done I'm larger than the wolf version of Grayson. Circling around him I growl and bare my teeth and it's the first time I see him cringe away from me. Sensing the woman behind me I quickly slice my claws through her chest and then go for Grayson. Taking him off guard I once again have him pinned down, although my love for him is breaking through my barrier. I want to fight but a part of me believes he's still good that he's attacking against his will. Letting go I hang my head and settle by a nearby tree. Watching him warily as he sits up and brushes the dirt off, then from the trees I hear a rustle then everything gets hazy. The last thing I see is his triumphant smirk. then I was thrown into complete and utter darkness.
