Here's chapter 2 hope you enjoy!
Classes were relatively long today. I thought I was going to die of boredom. The only things that kept me sane was music and Kiba. Yep, he actually talked to me. Our conversations have been funny and amusing considering the boring classes. We mostly made fun of our teachers. I found out he's a month older than me, has no siblings, and has another cousin named Toboe. Toboe sounds so adorable. He sounds very much alike with my niece Alexia. Back to Kiba, anyway he's more interesting than I thought at first. School has ended so I'm heading to the auditorium, where I told Kiba to meet me. I'm so nervous, I can already feel my heartbeat twice as fast. I take slow deep breathes as a familiar scent fills the air. I try to play it cool by leaning against the brick wall with my hands behind my head. Which works by the way. Kiba strolls up, alone. I'm glad his pack isn't with him because things would get awkward. I smile at him, making him confused. I motion him to follow me. He hesitates for a second but does so. I bring him inside to the grand piano on stage. I sit on the leather seat and tell him to sit next to me. He does so, even more curious.
Resting my fingers on the keys I play a few notes before I open my mouth to sing.
You're so hypnotizing ,
Could you be the devil
Could you be an angel?
Your touch magnetizing ,
Feels like I am floating ,
Leaves my body glowing
I glance at Kiba a couple times to see his face. He isn't smiling but he isn't frowning either. It's more like he's interested in the song and my voice.
They say be afraid
You're not like the others, futuristic lover
They don't understand you.
You're from a whole other world
A different dimension,
You open my eyes,
And I'm ready to go, Lead into the light
I'm giving hints that this song is a little bit about him, he helped me finish it, but he doesn't get it so I have to sing more. To show him I like him but not be too obvious to where he thinks I'm a creep.
Kiss me, kiss me
Infect me with your love ,
And fill me with you poison.
Take me, Take me
I wanna be your victim
Ready for abduction, you are
You're an alien
Your touch so foreign
It's supernatural, extraterrestrial
I can feel Kiba's eyes on me, watching my every move. Not in a creepy way though. But in a way where he can't take his eyes off me. Score 1 for Alec. I slowly open my eyes and meet his gaze. I'm still singing, still playing but I barely hear my own words. I'm getting lost in his eyes again. I love and hate when that happens. He leans closer to me to where I can fully take in his scent. I play the last few notes before stopping. The auditorium walls echo the silence that falls between us. I quickly smile at him, getting up to leave. He grabs my wrist, gently pulling me down. I am now really close to his face. So close I can feel his hot breath on my skin. I quickly sit down with him still holding my wrist.
"K…Kiba", I mumble, blush forming at my cheeks. He says nothing, just gazes into my eyes.
He slides his hand down to my hand. The motion sends chills down my spine. His touch is so hypnotizing. I refuse to break eye contact, afraid to ruin the moment. We slowly lean closer to each other. Our lips only inches from each other. Just when we're close enough to where our lips were going to touch someone clears their throat. Kiba's eyes widen and he jolts up in shock. He blushes slightly then heads toward the door. He turns around and smiles wealkly. He walks out the door, disappearing. I reach my hand out as if to grab him but I pull back slightly.
"Kiba", I otter with sadness in my voice. I look at the cause of Kiba running away. It's Chloe. I keep my anger under control for I know she has a reason for coming here. My mood changes from angry to serious.
"What is it?" I ask. "The moon is raising, we must go", she commands in her alpha tone. I simply nod.
We drop our illusions and in my sisters place is black wolf with gold over black eyes. We run out the building into the woods. Our paws rapidly hit the hard dirt, the wind blowing through our fur, the scent of deer entering our noses. Chloe distracts the deer while I jump from tree to branch. I jump off the branch and with one swift move I snap the deer's throat with my jaws. The sound of me snapping the deer's neck echoes through the woods. Chloe cheers for another successful kill, me however not so much. My mind keeps slipping back to Kiba. I can't help but worry about what he thinks of me now, or about what might of happened if Chloe didn't interrupt. I sigh. Kiba.
Kiba grabs Alec's wrist, stopping the dark red wolf from leaving. He quickly pulls the other down, closer to him. Kiba gazes intensely into Alec's lilac eyes. He finds his body moving on its own. Alec sits down, but Kiba refuses to let go of Alec's wrist.
"K…Kiba", Alec mumbles. His voice sending currents of a strange feeling up and down Kiba's spine.
He slowly slides his hand down to take Alec's hand in his. Neither one break eye contact, lost in one another. They slowly lean closer toward each other. Their lips only inches apart. A part of Kiba wants to stop this before it gets to out of control, but another part of him wants Alec. Is it lust he feels toward the beta wolf? Kiba sure as hell doesn't know. All he knows is his body is moving on its own. Just when they were about to kiss, someone clears their throat. The interruption snaps Kiba back to reality. Kiba's eyes wide in shock and jolts up. Kiba blushes slightly realizing the situation. They were about to kiss. No that can't be! Alec's a guy, but why didn't Kiba stop himself from almost kissing the other. He heads toward the door, ignoring everything else. He turns around, faking a smile. Pain comes to his chest when he sees Alec's face. He looked hurt and confused. That's how Kiba feels. He disappears out the door. He hears Alec otter his name, sadness in his voice.
Kiba puts his hands in his jacket pockets, walking down the silent hallways. A female figure comes from out of the shadows.
"I saw what happened in there. You don't have to hide the fact you like him", Blue says, placing her hand on her alpha's shoulder in comfort.
"What are you talking about? I don't like him in that way if that's what you mean. Our main goal is to get to paradise, anything else is not of importance", Kiba says, jerking his shoulder away.
"Fine if you say so but sooner or later you'll have to face him again. Then what?", she asks making a point.
Kiba doesn't answer her question. He doesn't want to. He has to find Cheza, the reason why he's here so they can enter paradise. Everything else is trivial, right? Then why is Alec still on his mind.
"We have to go", Kiba commands. Blue nods, dropping her illusion. Kiba drops his too. In their places are a white wolf with gold over black eyes and a midnight blue wolf with blue over black eyes. They head toward the forest to meet with the rest of their pack. Their noses are soon filled with the scent of deer blood and two wolves. They change direction, heading toward the scent. They get close but far enough to where they aren't seen. Kiba's eyes widen. It's Alec and Chloe. The last two people he wanted to see. Although he can't help but to want to explain why he ran away, even if he doesn't know the answer himself. Chloe leaves taking the deer with her, leaving Alec by himself. Kiba gets up to confront the lone wolf but returns to his original position when his nose is greeted by a familiar scent. It's so familiar but he can't place it. As the scent grows stronger his eyes widen. So does Blue's. It's the scent of Lunar flowers. No way it can't be!
"Why is Alec sad?', a young girl asks. She has long pink hair, crimson eyes, and wearing pink jacket with a white skirt and white tennis shoes.
"Because of something that happened earlier. I rather not talk about it", Alec says to the girl, fake smiling.
"This One understands. This One waited for Alec", she says smiling back. She bends down stroking the wolf's soft red fur. She wraps her arms around him as Alec lays his head on her shoulder. He nuzzles her with his muzzle.
"Alec will always be with this One", she says hugging him tighter. "Always, Cheza", he replies.
'Cheza! Is it really her?", Kiba thinks. His body moves on its own again. He runs toward Alec and the girl.
"KIBA!", Blue calls running after him.
Their strides slow the closer they get. Alec's ears perk up in alert. Cheza stands up, her hair gently blowing in the wind. She smiles even more for her most important person in her past life has found her. He will soon meet her other most important person.
"Cheza", Kiba mumbles as he slowly walks up to her, now in his human illusion. Her face lights up as she pulls him into an embrace. During this time Alec and Blue change into their human illusions.
"Cheza we have to go otherwise Chloe, Zane, and Alexia with get worried", He says holding his hand out. Cheza glances from him to Kiba then back at him and nods. "Won't Kiba come too?", she asks taking Alec's hand. Alec looks at the ground.
"Sure if both him and Blue don't mind", he says. Kiba hesitates but accepts. Alec leads them through the woods to his family's house. The front door slams open and a six year old girl runs out. Her short black hair in curls, a huge smile across her face, her cheeks rosy. Alec bends down so she can jump into his arms. She wraps her small arms around his neck.
"Mommy's home", she says cheerfully. Alec chuckles lightly. "Yep", he replies holding her tighter.
He moves the little girl so she's sitting on his hip. Her arms still around his neck, she hides her face in Alec's neck. "Kiba, Blue, this is my niece Alexia", Alec introduces.
"Why'd she call you mommy?". Kiba asks finally speaking to Alec. Alec chuckles. "You're asking the wrong person Kiba", he responds.
Alec leads all of them inside the large house. The house is larger on the inside than on the outside. It's also surprising clean for a house with five people living in it. Alec places Alexia down and she runs upstairs. Alec then leads them to the living room where everyone else is. Chloe leans against the wall staring at the fire in the fireplace. She looks up, meeting her twin's eyes. He nods slightly. He looks at the other male in the large room. Sitting at the desk in the far side of the room, a teen with blonde hair, pale skin, and midnight blue eyes pushes his glasses up on his face then continues to read.
"Kiba has already meet her but this is my twin sister Chloe, and the bookworm over there is my best friend and lead guitarist Zane", Alec introduces.
They all smile and nod as a greeting. Alec ,bothered by the awkward silence that fell in the room, excuses himself to his room.
The awkward silence in the living room was suffocating. I had to escape, so I left to my room. I head up the wooden staircase and down a dark hallway. I open my door and find Alexia sleeping on my bed with her stuffed bunny. I smile to myself. Ever since her parents died she would always sleep in my room.
She tells me everything even funny random stuff. I gently push her hair out of her face and kiss her forehead. I walk over to my balcony and stare at the moon. Kiba, he almost kissed me today. That means something, doesn't it? Who knows. Never in my life did I have trouble getting anyone I wanted. Usually it would take a day but this is going to be tougher than I thought. I sigh, which I probably sigh a lot. Anyways, I'm not going to give up, not yet at least. First I have to figure out if he's interested in guys or was it just the moment. I hear footsteps come closer and the door to the balcony opens. I turn to see who it is and speak of the devil, it's Kiba.
"I wanted to say I'm sorry for earlier", he apologizes, dropping some of his pride. "Don't be, nothing happened anyway. Besides we're still friends, right? Why don't we forget the whole thing ever happened?', I suggest. A sudden pain comes to my chest as the words slip my lips.
Kiba smiles. "Sure, but if you don't mind I have more questions to ask", he responds. I give him the okay to ask.
"About Alexia, what happened to her parents, and to yours?", he asks leaning against the railing.
"Well Alexia's father, my older brother, went to America to help fight in their war. He died in battle. Alexia's mother, no one knows, just like my parents. They left Chloe and I under our brother's care, who at the time was still a pup. Unlike my sister, I never asked where they are or why they left. Personally I couldn't care less", I answer truthfully.
"What about Zane?", he asks. Well I didn't expect him to ask about Zane. "He lived a better childhoodthan us. He's extremely bright. For some odd reason he left his pack and moved to England. I meet him on the first day of school two years ago and overtime he joined us", I answer not knowing all the details of Zane's life.
"So how about you Mr. 20 questions?", I joke. He looks at the moon. "I was abandoned by the parents and raised by Native Americans until the village was destroyed and I left. After that my pack started to form. Where they came from I didn't care about all I wanted was to get to paradise", he answers.
"Paradise huh? I never thought about going there. Cheza mentioned it but it never was a big thing for me. Maybe, someday soon, we can all go to paradise together", I mumble. He smiles.
I really want to ask how he and Cheza know each other but that'll be too much. After all we just met today, I could always ask later. I look down and spot the scary Tsume with a scowl on his face, A happy Hige with his hands in his pockets, and a younger boy with shoulder length brown hair, a red button up shirt, cargo pants, and boots. That must be Toboe. We both silently exit my room to the living room. We all separate to two sides of the room. Kiba's pack on the side closer to the door, and my pack on the other side closer to the book case, with Cheza in the middle of the room.
"I would like to make an offer", Chloe says being the first one to speak. All eyes and ears give their undivided attention to the black alpha. "Since we are the only wolves within miles of here we should stick together. So I would like, if you all don't mind, for the five of you to stay in this house with us. It's big enough to fit everyone, it's in the middle of the forest, and there is plenty of food for everyone", she suggest.
I open my mouth to object, but bite my lower lip instead. If they say yes then Kiba will be living here. You all know I have a thing for him but we're on a friend bases right now. I can't ruin that, at least not yet. But if he says yes then I can get closer to him, and maybe become more than friends. I just have to see how this plays out. Cheza says nothing but the looks in her face says she wants them to stay. Tsume says no and glares at us. He and my sister scowl at each other. Blue and Toboe says it would be a great idea. Hige says he doesn't care, now it all rest on Kiba's decision. He looks at his pack, at Cheza, and then at me. I force a smile on my face and he smiles back.
"We would be happy to stay", Kiba says. Blue and Toboe cheer, Tsume growls, and everyone else smiles. Zane takes the new members of the house to their room while the rest of us go to ours. I change into a t- shirt and shorts and crawl into bed next to Alexia. She buries her face in my chest, clenching my shirt. I gently stroke her soft hair.
"Mommy, is those people staying with us?" she asks, her eyes remaining closed. I smile. "Yep", I whisper. She smiles before drifting back to sleep.
Life is about to get more interesting around here. The question is, is it a good thing or not?
ME: Did you like? If so review
Alec: nothing(walks away)
