i still laid on the floor. Allie had left me alone. the pups had gone with her. it wasn't that i thought my pain was worse than anyone else's. its just the fact that i was the alpha. i am supposed to keep everyone safe. i let jace go alone, i should have sent someone with him. my orders are what killed him. No one else bothered me for the night. i slept in my wolf form. i woke up early and phased back so that i could get dressed for school. i was slower than ever getting ready. everyone waited on me. we drove into the parking-lot and everyone starred. it was like they were waiting to see if anything would happen. i didn't see Luke or Alex anywhere. we got out without a word. the straightest looks on our faces. people moved quickly. we looked scary. first block went fine. then Allie and i were in chemistry. Peter sat behind us. thats when i saw Brittney pass the door,but stopped and looked straight at me. she grinned then kept on walking. my hands were shaking rapidly. if i didn't calm down, i was going to show this class how aggressive i could get. Allie grabbed my wrist and starred at me. "Nikki...don't"she whispered in my ear. i wasn't listening to her. i wanted to do Brittney just like she did Jace only ten times as worse. people began to look at me. my teeth clenched together but my hands began to slow. that's when the teacher started class. through-out the entire class Brittney's face sat in my mind. she wasn't torn up at all about killing Jace. when the bell rang i got my books and Allie stuck to me like glue. so did the rest of the pack. after tossing everything in my locker,all of us got ready to leave and Brittney walked past my locker. she was laughing. thats when i lost it. i ripped free of Ally's arm and ran up to her. i wrapped her hair around my hand and dragged her up against a lockers. she began shaking and growling. her eyes were changing colors. my other hand slid to her throat. i leaned closer to her.
"you killed him.And trust me,you will pay. on Analakoo's grave i swear that you will die for this" i whispered. she was still growling. i growled back . Luke and Alex growled at me while Bruce ,Allie,and Aaliyah growled as well.people looked confused,because our growls weren't like a human just trying to growl we sounded like real wolves. Ally held my wrist.
"Not here Nikki. let her go" i growled. it was time for her to know.
" by the way, seen any babies lately?" i raised an eyebrow. her eyes widened and she tried to break free of my grip. i smiled and let her go.
Allie walked over to Alex
." i can't believe you would stand by her after this" She shook her head and turned back to me. "lets go" they stayed defensive till i left out the side doors. then we re-grouped.
allie drove while Bruce sat in the passenger seat and Aaliyah in the back with me.
"what the hell were you thinking?"allie growled. I leaned my head up against the window and watched the town fade away and the tree's close in on each side.
"I wasn't thinking allie..." my voice barely a whisper.
It was quiet again. I didn't move my head from the window. Peter jumped into my head. The only thing that lingered In my mind at the moment. It was quiet. The road was empty and the sun was only visible through the trees. It made my blue eyes brighter. Thinking of peter made my anger disappear only slightly.the simple times , when we all somewhat got along. When I could be with peter. When all of this didn't stand in the way. a werewolf was forbidden to love a vampire. If any of us ever broke that rule our pack members were ordered to kill us.now i knew that they weren't going to kill me,but i didn't want them put in that position.
"look just drop me off at La luna. ive got to talk to Deck."
"your not going alone" Bruce said,before Allie could open her mouth and say the same exact words.
i looked at Allie and shook my head. " i don't care. you guys need to get back to the babies. now that Brittney knows-"
"Brittney knows what?" Allie pushed down on the break and the wheels came to a screeching stop. everyone turned and faced me.
" i mentioned that we had her babies"
"her babies?" Aaliyah said with a shocked expression on her face.
" she proved it tonight. when i first found them i was wondering why she wanted to kill them so bad" " when i was choking her i told her that i had found her babies and she lost it. she had this crazy look in her eye. and her body got hot. so i peaced it together... she was pregnant. she tried to cover it up"
"and if anyone ever found out -"
"then she would be rouined..." Bruce finished. cutting off Allie.
"but if she was pregnant... the question that really matters is,by who?" Allie starred off into the distance while thinking. i popped open the car door and got out. aliyah's door opened next. she was the one tagging along then. Allie rolled down her window and we just starred at one another.
"be careful... ive gotta run home for a minute cause my mother is losing her mind cause im out all night. now she thinks im pregnant and having emotion break-downs."she rolled her eyes. i heard Bruce in the passenger seat laughing. it was kind of funny. Mrs.Stanton was always paranoid. i smiled and tried to hold back my laugh cause Allie had smacked Bruce in the back of the head for laughing. she put the car in drive and pressed down on the accelerator. the car jumped off of the dirt and did a somewhat drift u-turn and headed back the way we came. Aliyah and i made our way up the dirt road. we never really had a convo, not just the two of us anyway. i guess now was a better time then ever.
"so...how are you and... Bruce" i asked. it felt weird asking her that. im not sure why.
she looked surprised. she couldn't have honestly thought that i didn't know. they were practically joined at the hip. "we're good. he's a good guy"
i nodded and grinned "yeah, he really is"
"so how are you and Peter..."
when she said his name, it felt like someone had shot me through the chest. i opened my mouth to speak but i didn't know what to say. " thats a little complicated " i chuckled. i licked my lips and pushed a strand of my hair out of my face. "me and Peter aren't together anymore" that hurt to.
"when? i thought that you guys were doing great" she really was confused.
"it was, but sooner or later we had to wake up from our fairy tale and step back into reality. i don't know...um i guess once reality hit us, we realized that we shouldn't be together anymore" i tried to explain best i could. trying to avoid any questions and more answers about him.
i guess she felt that vibe coming from me because all she said was "oh" i could see the small bar now. we were almost at the top of the hill. i always laughed when i saw La Luna because it looked so small on the outside, but thats because the real club was underground. it was like the underground clubs in Italy. finally after three more minutes of hiking up the stupid hill i opened the door and went to the door that read "employees only" it led underground. the dimly lit lanterns made the walls orange. the walls weren't made of dirt but of tan bricks. Deck had fixed it up himself. i don't know how but i never asked. i hadn't been here for a while. i saw him on one of the couch's watching football on one of the flat-screens yelling at the t.v. i heard Aliyah chuckle next to me. the game was giants vs. the cowboys. the score was ten to nothing. the way Deck was screaming at the t.v. im guessing that he was routing for the cowboys,because they were losing. i moved a little closer and pretended to clear my throat. he spun around.
"dammit Nikki!! its called knocking" he relaxed and his eyes went back to normal.
"how the hell would you hear me knocking on the door with the t.v. blasting at two-hundred"i crossed my arms across my chest.
"see now your exaggerating. its on fifty" he smiled.
"oh yeah,thats a lot better" i nodded sarcastically
he grabbed the remote off of the bar table and muted the t.v. "so what's up? i haven't seen you in a while" he sat down. Aliyah and i sat on the couch parallel to him.
" i actually need to talk to you"
"what about" his expression went from friendly to dead serious.
"Jace is dead...Brittney killed him. i need to know if she has been here lately" i shook my head from side to side. Deck looked down. he was shocked. he loved Jace. hell,everyone loved him.
"you've got crazy timing" he replied
"why?"now im confused. why did he say that.
"because,five minutes ago...Brittney was just in here. asking me the same exact question you are asking me now" my eyes widened at him. my gaze slid to Aliyah. she was watching us coming here. which means...she heard everything Allie and i said. the pups were unprotected. now she knew where they were!! i hopped up and sprinted up the stairs and out the door with Aliyah right on my heels. in the background i heard Deck. "what's wrong Nikki?" but i had no time to stop. i busted open the bar door and shifted, Aliyah along with me raced towards the mansions.
please don't let us be to late. God please, don't let them be dead.....
