If you haven’t read Chapter 12, here is the link:
“What the fuck did you do to me??” I said as I yelled at my father, he was on the other side of the door from the room I was stuck in. I banged on the glass, but he didn’t move at all. What the hell was wrong with him? What did he really want me for?
“I can’t explain until you completely relax.” He spoke, but that just fueled my fire. He pointed his hand over to the table that had a chair on my side and his side of the glass. He walked over and sat down, waiting for me to sit down as well. “Sit, there is a lot we need to discuss.”
I sat down and glared at him, he had something on the table, that he slid to me under the glass. A folder, but not just anyone’s folder, my folder. My medical history folder. As I opened the folder, I figured there would be more stuff in it, since I had cancer, but there wasn’t. I closed it and slid it back forcefully.
“What do you want?” I asked, clearly he needed me to do something and I’ve been getting impatient. I needed to go find Athena. He pulled out the top piece of paper and highlighted something and slid it back over to me.
As I looked down, I was shocked. I wasn’t dying from cancer. This didn’t seem right, how could I be dying from cancer and it just healed me? Doesn’t make any sense. I needed some answers.
“I saved your life. I just activated a gene in your system that has been hidden away for a long time.” He paused and stood up, pacing back and forth. “You see, you aren’t just a regular human. You were born into a family that the werewolf gene is in us all.”
I looked at him confused, he noticed my look and gave me a soft smile. “I know this is a lot to take in, but I activated the gene, so your body would heal yourself from cancer.” He finished.
“How was the gene activated?” I asked.
“Well, you see, the werewolf gene only gets activated if you kill someone. So, I drugged you into thinking you were killing someone else, but really, it was your mother.” His smiled turned into a faded grin.
My heart stopped for a second. I stood up from the chair and looked at my own hairs, I could see some dried up blood in the nails of them. Then something in my mind happened, it flashed back to a few hours ago, when I was tied up with chains and he stabbed something in my chest.
My mother came over to check on me, and I ripped her neck off, then everything went black. I looked over at my father, who I didn’t believe for a second that he was my father. “I want proof! You son of a bitch!” I slammed into the glass again, still, it didn’t move at all.
My father pulled away from the table and nodded over to someone in the corner, two people covered in black rolled in with a body. I fell to my knees and saw her. My mother. He throat had a bandage covering where I hurt her.
I started to cry, I never thought I would ever hurt my mother. She was my only family. My one and only mom. Now, she was gone, because of me.
“Oh, one more thing,” He spoke. “Sad to say, but your little Athena died in a fire. Her Aunt’s place was burned to ash and there weren’t any survivors. Safe to say you won’t be seeing her anytime soon.”
My heart ached, I still didn’t believe him. I wanted proof that she was gone, just like my mother. I promised that I would get better and find her. If it was the last thing I did.
“Mark my words, when I get out of here, I swear to god that I’ll kill you!” I screamed, looking back at him, he laughed a little when I said it.
“You mean if you get out of here.” He said, laughing, again. “Next time you come out of here, you won’t be able to do so.”
“This is too crazy. If Ricky is alive, then where is he?” I spoke, as we were sitting back in the RV. Athena and I wanted to tell our father, Aunt Marie, and James, how everything was going.
“The last place he was at was his father’s, wasn’t it?” Athena asked as it was true, but why would Ricky’s father do this to his son? More in fact, what did he do to his son? I pulled out my phone and was about to call him when Aunt Marie took it.
“No! If Ricky’s father is really doing this, this is the last thing we want to do. He could track our call and make Ricky cry out for him. You both aren’t strong enough.” Aunt Marie explained as I rolled my eyes. This whole witch thing is bullshit.
I knew we had to be cautious, but we just found out that Ricky is alive and that we can actually save him. I just have a bad feeling, the longer we wait, the worse chance it will be to be able to save him.
Athena suddenly got up, from the corner seat and walked out of the RV. I was about to race back to her, but James spoke before I leave.
“I’ll go check on her.” He said as he then headed out to see Athena.
“This is hard on her, especially if she had a vision.” Aunt Marie explained to our father. She looked over at me and saw how confused I was. “When she or even you, have a vision, especially if it is someone you truly love, you can feel how they feel. Every pain they are having in that vision. Every emotion. It’s like you are the one that you are having a vision on. It’s different for everyone, but if the vision of someone you love, it’s harder. Trust me, I know.”
I looked back up at her. “You had visions?” I asked.
“Sure, I didn’t have them as much as you and your sister will have. I was lucky to have one every few months or so. I even saw you two were born, even though, I didn’t see your mother, I honestly thought that it was for me.” Aunt Marie smiled. “I think you two should get back in soon. I would keep looking for a cure. Sooner you figure that out, the more I can help you.”
She hugged me, as I hugged her back. Then I looked over at my dad, I gave him a look about, meaning I was asking about mom.
“She’s home, but she hasn’t talked to me about anything. Don’t worry, think positive, I will get through to your mother.” He said as I nodded, walking out of the RV. As I headed back to the tree, James was hugging Athena. I don’t know if I was being overprotected, but my blood started to boil.
I really didn’t trust that guy. There was something off about him. Something I wasn’t sure about. He was too interested in my sister. I approached them both, James gave me a small smile, but I ignore it. “Athena, we got to get back.” I snapped as she and I both went back into the tree.
“What’s wrong with you? James was just talking to me.” I said I wasn’t sure why he was getting so upset over me just talking with someone.
“I just don’t trust him. Just stay away from him.” Logan said as he headed down into his hall. I couldn’t win with him. I walked over and sat by the fountain and looked into it. It had many different things on the bottom.
Rocks, gems, moss, shells, and fish. I just sat there and stared into the fountain. Thinking about everything that was happening and going on. Then I saw something that was different in the fountain. There was a closed clam, but this wasn’t normal, it was glowing in a purple light.
I grabbed it and held it in my hand, as it slowly opened up for me. Inside was a beautiful pearl, but there was something sticking out that was under the pearl. It was like paper, as I slowly pulled it out. It was small, but I once I started looking into what this really was.
“Oh my god,” I spoke as I put the clam on my lap, looking over the piece of paper I found.
“What’s that you got, babe?” I heard Dean’s voice, as he sat next to me, too close for comfort. He took the paper as he started to read it, his eyes popped open as he stood up.
“Holy shit, you found it. Do you know how long we have been looking for this?”
“I believe it was a long time, right?” I laughed. He came closer to me.
“You have no idea,” Dean said, leaning in closer to me and planted his lips upon mine.
Something happened when we kissed, I could hear his heart beating but didn’t want to stop, I craved more. Something about him was almost a part of me. The kiss was thrilling, exciting, and I didn’t want to stop.
Dean finally pulled away, leaning his forehead on the mind. “I would keep kissing you, but I have a feeling it would go further than just a kiss.” He smirked as I smiled back. He then sat next to me, closer than before. “This is going to drive me crazy.” He said, stroking the side of my arm.
I quickly stood up as I saw Elle coming into the main room. I grabbed the piece of paper from Dean and the clam, with the pearl.
“Elle, I think we found it,” I said, she smiled back at me and I handed her the clam and the piece of paper. “It’s the cure for vampirism.”
