Chapter 12

I sighed before leaned forward and resting my head in my palm and placing my elbow on the aged wooden banister that framed the back porch.

It had been a long day….

First with the surprise with Kate and her sister Myxi as the witches Uncle Pierce had sent to make the wards, second packing everything (bleh!), driving through the town for 40 minutes (double bleh!) then far into the country for another 2 hours (triple bleh!).

And it was all to get away from the shape shifting wolf pack that were after me for reasons everyone but me knew….

Which was just peachy.

I gazed into the trees surrounding the man made clearing the house was in. It was on the edge of a valley on a flat part so it was kind of hidden from above on both sides. It was also really hard to find the road in. Any other way in was deadly Josh had said. Some of the dangerous parts of road had been carved by hand out of the rock face by hand.

I was thinking about how hard that must have been, even if it was a vampire who did it when long familiar arms wrapped around my waist and gently pulled me back onto a hard chest.

Those two fight a lot. Zac said mentally, sending me pictures of Myxi and Twinkle most recent disagreement.

They'd fought all the way here and then some.

Twinkle was a shape shifter by the way. A nice one. And he'd been at our house when wed started packing so we just bought him with us. He didn't mind anyway.

"That's why I'm out here," I said twisting in his arms to face him. "And their in there"

"I wonder when they'll figure it out….." Zac said smiling before burying his face in my hair.

I frowned, wrapping my arms around his neck. "Figure what out?"

"You honestly don't see it?"

I shook my head.

He pulled back to look at me, sighing.

Their soulmatesHe said laughing at my shocked face.

"WHAT!" I gasped. Kate was pretty much my sister and Myxi was like my slightly older one. "How do you know?"

"See how they fight over such small and pointless things?" he asked, returning his check in my hair.

I nodded slowly.

"That's just sexual tension," He explained. "Trust me. It happens all the time. I wonder how long it'll be before they figure it out…Me and Josh sorta made them share a room or Twinkle could sleep on the couch and you've seen the couch so it'll probably be soon."

Urg, the couch. It was all gross and falling apart. It wasn't mouldy or anything but when you sat on it you sort of sank back into it and then you were kind of swallowed into the back of it.

"You don't mind sharing a room do you?" Zacs voice was sort of strange. Like he'd hesitated before speaking.

"Course not." I grinned at his uncertainty.

Not funny He thought back.

For you I sent a mental laugh with it, grinning wider.

"Have you notice there's not animals around here?"

"Now that you mention it…." Zac said, glancing around.

I sighed. It must only be about four o'clock but the sun had already disappeared behind the trees and the air was starting to get cold.

"Wanna check out our room?" I asked, smiling wickedly against Zac's neck.

He laughed, scooping me up and walking inside.

A/N: Sorry for the delay! I went to Sydney, it was my birthday, my best friend whose anorexic got out of hospital and came back to school and all my teachers have just been piling the homework on. Hopefully it won't be too long before I update again. I sorta decided id finish this story before continuing 'The cold packs hunt'. I sorta like this one anyway:D. Hope it was worth waiting for, although it's a little bit boring! -Charlotte
