HotXbun: This one will be for 'Seeking Solace.' It will be set right after chapter 5 of Wolf Children.
Disclaimer: I do now own Wizards of Waverly Place. But I do own Wolf Children (the fan fiction I wrote, not the movie) as well as Selena and Hunter.
Chapter 5 Seeking Solace
I woke in confusion when I heard knocking.
I looked around before hearing the knocking again. That's when I realized that it was coming from my front door.
"Huh", I said in confusion. "Who could that be?"
With that I got up and opened my front door.
Standing in front of me was...my best friend Harper.
She was wearing an almost completely black and simple outfit. This was weird for Harper as she usually colorful and outlandish outfits.
She also looked like she had been crying. Just like I probably did.
"Harper", I said in confusion. "What are you doing here?"
"I...", Harper started. "I...I just got your text about Mason."
When I heard this...I looked down sadly. It was taking everything in me to not cry at that moment.
It wasn't working.
"I...", I started as I began to cry. "I'm sorry. I shouldn't have told you something like this over text, but...I...I...I didn't want to have to say it..."
I didn't get to finish...as Harper had wrapped her arms around me...and I burst out crying.
"It's okay", she stated. "It's okay. Just let it all out."
"Why", I asked as tears streamed down my eyes. "Why did it have to happen to him?!"
"I don't know sweetie", Harper replied. "I just don't know."
"What am I going to do now", I asked. "How am I going to raise two children, half werewolf children, on my own?!"
"Hey", Harper scolded as she looked at me. "You are not on your own okay? You have your family. Mason's family. Me."
"It's not the same Harper", I stated. "My children need a father, and know...know they're going to have to grow up without one. It's not fair."
"It isn't", Harper agreed before hugging me again. "But you're not alone. You have so many love ones that are going to be there for you."
"I know", I agreed. "And I'm so grateful that I do, but...but I want Mason!"
"I know", Harper said. "I know, and I'm so sorry."
With that I continued to cry.
"Is there anything you need me to do", Harper asked me as she broke our hug. "Do you want me to take Selena and Hunter off your hands for a bit."
"No", I replied. "I want them with me."
"Are you sure", Harper asked.
"Last night", I started. "I had a dream. In it...Mason told me to take care of our children, and I promised him that I would.
"I understand that", Harper stated. "But you have just through so much."
"I want them with me", I said.
"Okay", Harper says giving in. "But I'm staying here with you."
