"Are you sure you're ready Noah?" Rachel asked as they made their way into the soundproofed basement. Puck nodded with a smile and turned his back as Rachel got undressed so she didn't ruin her clothes when she changed into her wolf form.
"Remember Puck," Santana began. "It only hurts the first time you change." Rachel had already changed into the black wolf and nuzzled Puck to get him to turn around. "She's going to try to make it gentle." The other brunette spoke softly and grabbed for her mate's hand. She didn't realize how emotional it was to be adding another member to their pack. She felt the rest of her pack felt the same way. There was a sense of pride, nervousness, anticipation, and a surge of happiness. "Don't forget to relax and don't fight the change; it will only make it hurt worse." The black wolf walked up to Puck slowly and he reached out his arm. Rachel bit into his arm gently; just enough to break the skin. She didn't pull away immediately; the taste of blood giving her a rush she wasn't expecting. Quinn walked up to her mate carefully.
"Come on Rach… that's enough." The black wolf growled but pulled away. Quinn gasped at the emotions coming from Rachel and started undressing herself. Puck was already shaking and dropping down to the couch. Santana and Brittany watched the other pair curiously as Quinn changed into her wolf form. "Stay with Puck and make sure the change goes well." Quinn said inside the other's minds. She nuzzled Rachel to get her attention and started pushing her out the door.
"What was that?" Santana asked; turning to Brittany.
"Blood gives us quite the rush…" Brittany said as she looked down to her feet. "I remember when I bit you; it was an amazing feeling. This is the first time Rachel has turned someone so she wasn't expecting it."
"She's not the one who changed you?" Brittany shook her head sadly.
"I was attacked by a gray wolf while I was looking for Lord Tubbington in the woods. Rachel found me after I had already gone through the change." Their conversation was interrupted by a painful scream as Puck's transformation began. They helped him out of his clothes as his body twisted excruciatingly. Brittany removed her clothes quickly and changed into her wolf self. They both helped their friend through his transformation. His fur was black and brown and he had a slight mane on his head and neck. Santana laughed and turned to Brittany. "Even in wolf form he has a Mohawk." Brittany chuckled in her wolf form and watched hungrily as Santana got out of her clothes. "Later." Santana smirked and changed into her wolf form quickly. They led Puck outside and into the trees. Santana sniffed the air to find the rest of their pack. "This way." Brittany said into their minds. It didn't take long for them to find Quinn who was watching Rachel eat a small animal. When Rachel looked up she had blood covering her muzzle so Quinn stepped forward and licked it off. Rachel still seemed wired and was shaking slightly.
"Noah, you still have a Mohawk." She said into his mind and he gave her a wolfy grin. "Okay everyone; let's hunt!"
Puck followed the rest of his pack through the hall; heading for their lockers. They split up in the main hallway so they could all get to their lockers before class. Santana, Brittany and Quinn headed down one hall while Puck followed Rachel down the opposite hallway. He stopped at his locker and watched as Rachel continued to hers. She was just getting the books she needed when a shadow loomed over her. The diva sighed when she caught Finn's scent. "What do you want Finn?"
"I've been wanting to talk to you alone again." He replied with a grin as he tried to pull her to an empty classroom. He was slightly puzzled when he couldn't seem to budge her and startled when he was suddenly surrounded by three angry Cheerios and Puck.
"Get your hands off her!" Quinn stepped in between them and glared at the Quarterback.
"I just want to talk to my girlfriend." He stated smugly and Rachel felt Quinn close to phasing. "Quinn," She said into her mind. "Stay calm, we don't want to take the risk of changing him."
"She's not your girlfriend." Santana said as she stepped between Quinn and Finn to stop Quinn from lashing out and because she wanted to get in Finn Hudson's face. "She's with someone else; deal with it and move on already." She said as she pushed him slightly. Even without using her wolf strength the boy stumbled backwards.
"Who are you with?" Finn asked angrily. "Puck?"
"Why do you insist on continuing to ask me if it's Puck after I already told you it's not him. I still don't see how this is any of your business."
"She's mine." Quinn stated firmly and stood behind her mate with her arms wrapped around her possessively. Finn laughed and shook his head.
"Yeah right; it's obvious you don't really have anyone Rach. We'll talk about this later." He said as he started to walk away. Rachel felt a rumble move through her as Quinn growled lowly.
"It's okay Quinn." She said as she placed her hands over the taller girl's. "Let's just all go to class." What Rachel didn't plan for is her first class didn't have any of her pack mates in it but Finn was sitting at her usual table waiting.
"Finally I can talk to you without the freaks around."
"Excuse me? Freaks? Those are my friends and my girlfriend you are talking about."
"Oh come on Rach. We both know you aren't dating Quinn; that's just ridiculous. Those girls would never sink so low as to hang out with you. Now stop this nonsense and I'm going to pick you up at 6 tonight for a date. We'll order pizza and stay in at my place."
"No Finn." Rachel was starting to get angrier as the class went on and Finn wouldn't stop passing her notes telling her he was the only one that could put up with her diva attitude and insulting her more with each passing minute. As soon as the bell rang she shot up out of her seat and bolted for the door.
"See you at six Rach!" Finn called after her and she didn't even bother to stop to correct him; she just wanted to get away from him.
