ours to command -Alan Watts Chapter 1 Moving I let the breeze blow through my spikey brown hair, wishing it wouldn't stop.This would be my last day in beautiful, sunny, Jacksonville, Florida. Leaving behind everything and starting a new life.I hated to be the center of attention, but of course I would be.I would be the new girl. Just great. . "why do we have to leave?"I said wrly to my mother on the way to the airport. But I already new the answer. Her new husband, and my stepfather,m Josh has a job as a baseball coach so they are going to Austin, Texas. I have decided to go to Castine, Maine one of the smallest towns I have ever heard of.Population, 1343. . . "Jule, you know why. we are doing this for Josh,"my mother said with her sweet smile.Sometimes I hated when she does her sweet smile, it makes me calm. I was going to live with my dad,Kyle. Cheif Kyle to be exact.Kyle was a policman, which causes more attention.The one thing I like about Kyle, is that he never really likes to have those "moments."like on tv. like my mom does, she has them way to often. I was on the plain, now. Now I can relax.but worry creased my forehead and then I started to really think.What if the other teenagers are just the opposite of what I was thinking. What if they where really casual , what if no one really noticed me? Yeah right. The plain landed 3 hours later, in Castine, Maine where I would spend the rest of this school year. I saw Kyle, and I walked unwillingly over to him. We got into his car, an old chevvy. The way to Kyle's house was very quiet and awkward, but it was better then long conversations. That's another thing I liked about Kyle. We were at the house now, it isn't a very large house, but it looked cozy. We walked in the house and right away I noticed the bright kitchen. The cupords where white, and the walls where a light beigh. The living room was more cozy, eggshell walls with brown carpet. Of course there was Kyle's t.v. Which he watches every weekend. Up the stairs and to the left was my room which had an old computer, a desk, a bed, and two windows with purple satin curtains. . Right away I got to unpacking. I started looking at my cloths, trying to decide want to wear. I finally decided to wear a pair of jeans and a dark red shirt. I went to go make some dinner, guessing that Kyle can't cook. I started heating some sauce and started boinling some noodles. When Kyle smelled the spagetti, he jumped out of his seat and started for the kitchen. Dinner had very little conversations. I mostly talked about my friends in Jacksonville, Amy, Nora, and Breanna. I went to bed early at nine, wishing the morning wouldn't come. Of course, the morning did come, to my displeasure. I dragged myself out of bed and headed to the bathroom. I stood in the hot shower for 15 minutes, trying to wake myself up, it didn't work. I went to the mirror, looking at myself. My brown spikey hair was very staight today, not in it's usual spikes. Then I went to my bedroom got dressed into my jeans and dark red t- shirt. I went to the kitchen and put bread in the toaster. "are you going to drive me ky- dad"I asked stumbling over his name. "nope jules I have something for you"he said happily, "a birthday present,"he said smiling.Oh he got me something. it was my birthday on January 1st, two weeks ago. I followed him outside until I froze while staring at a sleek black car with a red bow on the top.
"Oh my god!,"I said with enthusiasm. "you got me a car!"I said smiling as big as I could. He stared at me with his big brown eyes. "do you like it?" he asked happily."yes so much."I said. Well it's almost time for you to go so go eat your breakfast, jules. I quickly ate my toast, and then ran quickly ran to my new car. I pulled the bow of and set it in the car. Then I was off to my first day of school.yipee.
Chapter 2 1st day. . Okay everyones staring. I though to Myself when I pulled into the school parking lot. I pulled open my car door and a girl with beautiful black hair walked up to me. "hi I'm katlyn, you must be julia"she said with her beutiful voice. "hi, katlyn,"I said as nice as I could."I guess I'm the center of attention today huh?"I said giggling. "ya all I have been hearing about is you lately"she said, a smile on her face. " want me to show you around?"she asked. "sure," I said. "there is the chem lab, and the bio lab..."she trailed off. "What?"I asked. "it's Cody"she said marveling. "Who is Cody"I asked, still confused. "Him," she pointed to a boy with blonde hair, which was spiked with gel."He is one of my friends," she said quietly. "oh,"was all I said. I realized she likes him. He walked up to us and smiled "hey there,"he said to me."you must be the new girl,"he said. "yeah,"I said. "Hey Kat," he said "hey,"she said.Right when she said it, a tall boy with red-brown hair walked up to us. "who is this?"He asked Cody. "This is Julia,"Katlyn said happily."She just moved here from Florida. "Oh hey."he said.His voice was very deep and soft."Im Seth." "hi."I said in a quiet voice."nice to meet you."he smiled at me, his green eyes sparkled. "I was just showing her around,"Katlyn said."but I have to go to the library, so Seth why don't you go show her around."She said, Apparently noticing me staring. "Sure."He said "come on." I followed him down the hall; glancing back at Katlyn who winked at me. "Here is the cafeteria,"he said, eager." and Mr. Berns room," he went on.I glanced at the clock, which said it was 7:55, about the time for my first class. "I think we have to go to...."I looked at my scedual "biology."I said quickly. "oh yeah so do I,"he said, his voice dropping."I guess we are in the same class,"that made him happier.We started walking to the biology lab. He walked me to the desk, pulled out my chair for me, then sat down next to me. "Today we will be talking about chemicals such as xenon..."Mrs. Rillo went on. But I couldn't pay attention to her, I was staring at Seth, who glanced every now and then, and when he did, I blushed. He wasn't paying much attention to Mrs Rillo either. He just doodled on his notebook. "Okay, we will get back to this later" Mrs. Barns said. "Time for lunch."said Seth while he got out of his seat. " Oh it is?"I asked. "yup."was all he said.I followed him to the Cafeteria, which was filled with tons of teenagers, all staring at me. Great. I followed Seth to a table, where katlyn, and Cody sat, with two other tennagers there.The girl had short blonde hair,
similar to mine, hers was also straight, but the edges were piecy.She was short and skinny The boy had short cropped hair, has green eyes and seemed very tall and gangly. "Alice, Paul, this is Julia," He said to the two."She just moved here." "Nice to meet you Julia, I'm Allison."she said annoncing her name. And giving me her hand. "Hey Julia I'm Paul." He said as he shook my hand. "hi." I said in a small voice. I went and sat by Seth and Alice. I noticed that Seth and Alice looked a lot alike, they could be brother and sister. They both had pale skin, blonde hair and green eyes, and they were both beautiful. Me, well I was very average. I had pale skin, brown hair, and topaz eyes. I was also very short, five foot five. "You two look a lot alike, you guys could be related." I said softly. He chuckled, "We are. We are brother and sister."he said still chuckling quietly. "Oh." I said embarassed. I liked Seth he was very nice. I wishes it would be the end of the day now.
Chapter 3 Seth I couldn't keep up with mr. Berns. He was talking to fast and I couldn't take notes fast enough. But, I scribbled them down as fast as I could. We were studying Shakespear, the romantic poet. And I stared at Seth in this class too, and Paul didn't like it. He was shaking in his seat;trying to control his anger I was guessing. He looked as if he were going to explode. I didn't know why. It was almost the end of class now, five minutes away. The rest of the time I just was doodling on my notebook. The bell rang and it was time to go. "hey jules" the beautiful soft voice greeted me. I smiled at him my eyes widened as I looked at him. He had beautiful soft pale skin and beautiful sparkling green eyes. "hi" I said in a small voice. "Julia, I wanted to know if you would want to go to a movie with me tonight?"He asked me out? "yeah, I'd like that"I said sweetly. "pick you up at five thirty?" he asked. "Yeah."I said still stumbling over my words. "cool." was all he said. I stared after him, as he walked out the door. I saw Paul too, shaking, again. I had to figure out what his problem was. But, seeing how his face, drained all of emotion, it was going to be hard, very hard. I started for the door until someone caught my shoulder. "Jules!" I reconized the deep voice, which was full of inticipation.I turned around and saw Paul, staring at me with his blue eyes furious. I was scared of him. "Paul.....what...happened to you?" I asked, my voice shaking, and my body trembling, and my breathing uneasy. "You should know why!" He said, his body shaking, and his blue eyes getting more furious by the second. "Please Paul, just calm down." I hissed, When I did, someone barged through the door, and stomped over to stand next to me.Seth. "Paul, calm down." Seth said in a threatning voice."if not, then you should run." Seth said, his green eyes furious. But his green eyes weren't green anymore, they were...gold? I was sure that he had green eyes I remember, and I remember, beacause his eyes were just green three Minutes ago. And green eyes in the light
were hasel right? "Paul, leave." he said pulling me behind him. My knees were going to buckle soon. Was this some rivalry? Paul looked as if he was going to explode,again. Pual murmured something which sounded like, "..... After school, parking lot." but that's all i heard. I blinked, and he was gone.the thing he said scared me, and then I decided I would see this fight. I went to my car which was parked way in the back. I got my phone and went to see. The fight. I walked around until I saw 2 guys standing across from eachother behind the school more close to the woods. I walked up slowly, feeling dizzy. Seth turned around to look at me, but I don't know how he heard it steps, I was still at least ten yards away. He looked at me, with gold eyes furious, but then they turned brown. But how? He turned back to Paul, who was lunging taward Him, his jaw clenched. He growled. Wait, he growled? I felt even dizzier now. I fell to the ground. "Julia!" Seth yelled."Jule, are you okay?"his voice was closer now. "Seth?"I asked. "Yeah jule it's me."He said, his voice soft. I think I just fainted. I felt so dizzy, and I couldn't keep my balance. I felt someone pick me up, and before I knew it, I was in the nurses room. The dark haired nurse came in slowly, and set a cup of water on the table next to me. The nurse had russet brown skin, deep brown eyes, and beautiful curly black hair down to her shoulders I yawned, and I heard a chuckle from the other side of the room. I looked over and there was Seth, his green eyes glittering."Good morning sleepy head." Seth said walking over to sit on my bed. "Your eyes are green now." I said observing his eyes. "they allways are."he said quickly. "they were gold in class, and they were brown in the parking lot." I muttered. "lighting." he said, but it wasn't the lighting. " that isn't the answer." I whispered. I knew it wasn't the answer, eyes don't turn three different colors. "yes It is."he said arguing. I was postive that he was lying. "Please just tell me the truth." I begged. "what truth? That's the answer!"he yelled. I couldn't help it, but tears welles up ing eyes."Are you crying?" he asked, his eyes brown now. "no." I said wiping away the tears. "Im sorry Julia." his apology was sincere."I will tell you the truth, but not now."his brown eyes, turning hasel. "they did it again!" I yelled. "I will tell you tonight on our date."he said emfisizing the word. "Okay."I whispered."Tonight."
Chapter 4 Truth
I went to my car from the nurses ofiice. I got in and started the car. I started driving away, until I saw Paul walk into the woods. I didn't want to find out what he was doing, until Seth walked in after him. I parked my car closer to the woods and started walking through. Right away I heard tears, snarls, and growls. I walked quietly in and hid behind a large oak tree when I saw Paul and Seth, fighting. It frightened me and I just kept watching. Seth growled at him and lunged, his teeth bared, Paul dodged and went at Seth. I heard a snarl come from him. Paul sundenly fell to the ground when Seth lightly touched him. That was enough for me. I sat on the ground and curled into a ball. I suddenly noticed I was crying. It started to rain lightly, and I looked over to see if they were
still fighting. But they weren't. Paul was on the ground still, shaking. And Seth stare at him, a smile on his face, and his brown eyes filled with sorrow. "Seth!" I yelled my eyes widened and my eyes filled up with tears. "Jule..."was all he said, I blinked and he was gone. But Paul still lay there, unconcios. "Paul!"I yelled. What was I doing? He just looked like he was going to kill me forty minutes ago. "Paul are you okay?...Paul, Paul!" He wasn't waking up. "Jule?" he asked his voice weak. "can you please go get me some help?"I felt so bad but... "Why should I?" I yelled at him. "Please Jule I will explain everything later." "okay"I stomped off quickly and ran to the nurses office. "nurse black? Nurse Black! You have to help Paul!"right when I yelled the dark haired woman came out, her russet skin sparkling under the lights. "What? Where is he? What happened to him?" she said grabbing her medical bag. " He is in the woods, and I don't know what happened to him." I lied. She quickly followed me into the woods, and gasped when she saw Paul laying there limp on the ground. "Jule?" Paul whispered in. A croaky voice. The nurse ran quickly over to him. "Where does it hurt?" She kept asking "Everywhere." He croked. "Did you get attacted by an animal? there are bite marks everywhere on you!" I Looked at his arms, which were full of bite marks. I gasped. I looked at him with worried eyes. His eyes widened, and he screamed with pain. "Paul!"I screamed in terror at the sight. "Im fi-"he said not finishing his sentance. He just past out. "Quick call nine-one-one!"nurse Black screamed, her deep brown eyes filled with horror. I quickly took out my cell phone and called. "Hello, this is nine one one, what's your emergency?" the voice asked calmly. "Im at Castine High School, in the woods, a couple yards in. My friend just got attacted by some kind of animal." "We will be right there,"She assured me."Dont worry"She hung up on me. "You better get home julia, your father is probably worried." the nurse said to me. " I want to stay. I will just call my dad." I took out my phone, and dialed the number "Julia? Where are you?"Kyle screamed at me. "Im at the high school, Paul got attacted by something and I just called nine one one. I'm just sitting here with him, and nurse black." "Okay jules but....nevermind" "Okay bye Ky- dad." "Bye."-click"he said it would be fine." I told nurse black. "Okay, Oh! Here's the ambulance!" I looked over, and there was the flashng lights in a distance I head the siren to and suddenly tons teenagers came to stand in a circle around Paul. There was Kat, and Cody, holding hands. That made me smile. I everyone people were starting at me, not Paul. "Julia?" Katlyn asked. "Yeah."I yelled back. "Hey julia, what happened to Paul?"He asked worrying. "He got attacted by an animal, and I just wanted to walk around a little out here, and then I saw Paul laying on the ground." I lied again, I have to stop lying. But then again what would I say,Seth came and broke every bone in Pauls body, then bit him. No one would beleive that. "Poor Paul." Cody said, not taking his eyes away from Katlyn. Katlyn frowned, and tears Welled up in her eyes. Cody threw his arms around her, she embraced him, and the tears came down her cheeks. I started to cry too, and the tears ran down my cheeks. Someone touched my shoulder, I jumped, and turned around. Seth. He Hugged
me tightly, and for a moment I hugged him back. I thought about this for a second, he is the one who did this to Paul. I let go of him quickly and the tears stopped. He looked at me with brown eyes. "Sorry." he whispered. "Why should I forgive you?"I asked quietly. Katlyn looked at Seth and me, his hands on my waist and my hand on his shoulder. "What do you mean?" he asked clueless. "I saw you do it Seth." I whispered, and I winced remembering the horrible fight " I have to tell you the truth don't I?."he asked quietly. "yeah." I hissed. He hugged me tightly against his chest and I hugged him back, but it didn't feel right. He almost killed Paul! "No Julia, I just broke him arm and leg, gave him a cuncution, and bit him a few times." He just read my mind! " Hey, owe don't yell, well think so loud." he whispered. You can read minds? I asked him htrough my thouhts. "Yes." Wait, then why do your eyes chang colors? "Because when my mood changes, so do my eyes, watch. I watched his eyes change from brown to green. I guess I know the truth now right? "not all of it."
Chapter 5 Future The ambulance took Paul away to the hospital a couple minutes later. As they took him away he turned his head to me and then I heard: "Julia, this will explain everything If you hear this." I stared at him in confusion. I mouthed the word what?"I can do this to anyone Jule. I can beam my thoughts into someone elses head." I stared at him for a while until they drove away. I felt dizzy and Seth noticed, he grabbed my waist and he balanced me. Why did Seth do this to Paul? I don't think I will be hanging out him much; at all. "Please, I will explain it all later." that's no excuse Seth, you broken his arms and legs! I screamed a very long high pitched scream in my head so it would hurt him. "ouch! DAMMIT!" he screamed. Everyone stared at him and I giggled quietly. That's part of your payback. I thought. We walked away and now I could talk outloud "Why did you do that to Paul?" I asked quietly. "He is my one and only enemy, well our kind's enemy." What do you mean bye "our kind?" "well, I'm mindreader"his expression didn't change. Haha Seth real funny."Im not joking julia." he whispered, his Hasel eyes serious. "Then..."I trailed off."What else are you that you can do that...biting. And how your really strong..."I trailed off. "Well, there is no exact word to describe what I am. You could say that I'm a mut. Well in a way. I froze. I didnt know who or what he was. But he's a mindreader, right? "Back in the early 1800's my great great great great granfather was a phsycic, and there hasn't been any until now. My generation well our generation, me and alice's will be the only Mindreaders in 4 generations my great great great great grandmother was a werewolf every single generation since then has been werewolves Alive doesn't know about this yet, but she will, in about a week. "Oh she isn't a werewolf." I said quietly. "Whats Seth then?" I asked, curious "Hes a werewolf and a projector." he whispered softly. Projector? "Yeah, he can sort of beam his thoughds into other peoples heads." Oh so that'swhat he did to me before, projecting. I hadn't really noticed where I was, intil i noticed me and Seth were leaning against my car. "When did you get this?" Seth asked politely. I giggled "Today" I soon remembered when Kyle "911 turbo....amazing. It's such a nice car." he murmured. Wow a 911 turbo! I really need to know about cars. Maybe he could teach me... I hinted. "Yeah I think I should" he chuckled. His laugh sent electricity through me. It heart raced as we
went on with the conversation.
