C4 Chapter 4
Vander Tyler Laurent
"She's something. That girl is something"
I saw a smile in Maurice lips. Draco nodded and I saw them watch her walk out of cafeteria.
"She's not normal."
Nilingon namin si Laura. She's very serious now like there's no trace of excitement and joy awhile back.
" I told you. The first time I saw her wala akong nakita.Even now."
I keep listening, I'm in no mood to talk
"She's just human Laura" inayos pa ni Vince ang salamin matapos sabihin iyon.
"I don't know Vince. I told you I can't see anything, her past or her future. Nothing. Blank. I even tried a physical contact by hugging her, mas magiging malinaw Sana ang makikita ko but... I saw darkness. Nothing at all"
I can't help frowning, how is it possible? Its Laura's rare ability ,she can foresee the future, and even past are no secret to her. It works both human, or other creatures beyond human nature.
"I can't smell her blood."
Natigilan ako. Nilingon ko si Draco, I thought I was alone. Akala ko epekto lang yun ng gamot ,lessening the pain and my senses. Kaninang magkatabi kami sa klase wala akong kahit ano mang naaamoy well aside from her cinnamon and vanilla scent. What's with the woman? She's been creeping me out these days, whenever I see her I'm becoming irritable and mad.
"Yes ,akala ko ako lang. I really can't smell her blood though I can hear her unstable heartbeat. On our first meeting, I tried smelling her blood but there's no scent. Its her blood flow and heartbeat only I can hear"
how come? Surely she's a human. Not a werewolf or a vampire. Alan namin agad kung kauri o kalaban ang nasa harap namin, kahit nga ilang daan kilometro ang layo naaamoy namin ang isang dayo na may dalang panganib. But that woman, Cassandra that's her name , she's a human Kaya madali siyang nakatapak ng mistletoe, she's not an enemy just an outsider. But there's something about her, I notice her reactions every time our eyes met , her blood flow faster and her heartbeat unstable I can't sense fear not even attraction, so where the fuck she's getting those reactions?
"In deep thinking eh?"
"What do you think of her?" Ani Laura
"She's just an annoying and arrogant bitch roaming around mistletoe, not a threat not even worth of my time and attention"
I decided to get out of there, I think the medicine is losing its effect. I'm becoming irritable even more, anomang oras ay makakaramdam na naman ako ng sobrang galit na gugustuhin Kong pumatay.
I run, so fast that the whole world around me became distorted in eyes . Parang naka fast forward ang lahat ng nadadaaan ko, pupunta akong gubat, I need to stay away and calm myself.
Natigilan ako, I heard a woman's voice. Nilingon ko ang paligid, I am at the old park , nakita ko ang isang babae na nakaupo sa buhangin sa harap ng isang sira na swing. Mayroong bata na nakaupo din sa tapat niya ,
"I told you to be careful Naih"
hinihipan ng babae ang binti ng bata, shit. Blood . as instance narinig ko ang mabilis na pintig ng puso ko, its so hard that I felt pain in my chest. I can hear everything ,
"mom its painful"
everything volumes up, napakalakas ng pandinig ko, the child's heartbeat ,her blood flow, the trickle of blood in her knee, her mother's blow in her wound my hearing become vividly clear and strong. Shit ,run, I should run now and stay away. But I can't move! They are humans, and you shouldn't touch them moron!
Nag iinit ang katawan ko , I can smell the blood. It will taste sweet dahil ang dugo ay mula sa isang bata, No! Shit! What are you doing!?
"They are not enemy Van, Not always"
I close my eyes, and heaved a deep breath.
I found myself running in the deepest part of the forest. Kapiraso na lang ang kontrol ko sa sarili, I saw my arms filled with furs , my nails became sharp and long , I found myself howling in the most powerful voice .
"Hear me!remember this voice. And never forget. Because I am the Alpha."
the message I wanted to convey, I heard replies from far distances before I lost my human instinct.
Gabi na ng makauwi ako sa Laurent mansion.
Nasa malawak na dining table ang buong angkan,nasa hapag din ang mga pagkain na tila may isang malaking piging na nagaganap well this the usual scene here.
"How are you?" Its my cousin Lucius. Bakas ang pag aalala sa mukha ng mga nasa hapag kainan.
Well I created that powerful howl, so I knew they heard me.
Tumango lang ako at pumunta sa pinaka dulo ng mesa. The alpha's position is noticeably here.
Natahimik ang lahat at hinintay ang akin hudyat.
"Let's dine." At masaya ng nag umpisang kumain ang lahat.
"How's the medication vander?" Its my uncle Alastor
"Good. But it didn't work for long, the blood still greater and powerful it resists any alien substance flowing within me. On considering of stop taking it "
Narinig ko ang pag kalansing ng kutsara
"You can't do that van! "
"I agree with laura. Coz maraming bagong salta na taga labas ngayon you can't take risk of losing control !"
Tila sang ayon din ang lahat Kay Maurice.
"Well then trust the alpha." I look at uncle Alastor
"Daddy!" Suway ni laura na hindi sang ayon .
Well they don't have any choice if I said I won't take any medicine anymore.
"I already made up my mind. "
Hinawakan ako ni laura sa braso dahil siya ang nasa kaliwa ko.
"Please vanie don't! "
Nakita ko ang malambot na ekspresyon at pag aalala sa mukha in laura.
"You're at the worst stage. Katatapos lang ng lotus moon the sign that you will start to become more aggressive and .. Dangerous as you finally became the alpha, at alam mo na totoo yun after that incident you can't just..."
I hold her hand ,
"I am the alpha. If I can't control myself and try hiding by doing fucking medications taking drugs and herbals Lau, I'll be ashamed to claim myself as the new alpha okay? So stop trying to stop me! All of you! Never! Try! To stop my decisions."
Padabog akong tumayo at nagdesisyong umakyat na lamang ng kwarto.
Fuck. I am the alpha yet I'm feeling so stupid and low, parang napaka hinang nilalang ang tingin ng lahat sakin , like hell! I won't give the others who badly wanted the position the pleasure of knowing my weakness! Fuck them !
