Chapter Two: The New Girl.
"When you are in Love you can't fall asleep because reality is
better than your dreams."
Faith was bright red in the face, for one
reason and one reason only: her mother had dropped her off at her new
collage. Faith bit her lip as she
climbed out of her mother’s red Ford car, clutching her bag with her laptop and
some books in. She’d argued with her
parents this morning that she would walk instead of being dropped off like she
was five again, but they hadn’t even listened to her. Faith sighed a little as she watched her
mother’s car drive off. Why had they
even moved here? Just because her father’s
company transferred him? Why couldn’t
they have moved someone else? Faith had
left many friends back home, and she already missed them and she’d only been in
Woodvillage two days, today being the third.
She’d been unpacking mostly since Friday. Her bedroom was still a mess, with clothes
and possessions everywhere but she didn’t really care at this moment in time. Out of all the places in her house, her
bedroom was always the messiest. She
tried to tidy it, but it always seemed to get messy, probably because she did a
lot in there. She was part of her school
paper back from where she came from and was always writing articles for it,
going places and seeing people within her small city. It was a little bit bigger than a school
paper, and it was sold in some small shops, but it hadn’t have been the main
paper, that had been another one, along with two others.
Faith stepped back as a big, black Range Rover Vogue
drove past her, the black tinted window obstructing her view of the driver and
whoever was with them. Faith sighed and
swung her back up onto her shoulder before turning on her heel and setting off
for the main collage building. The
collage itself was set up into four big blocks, each block containing about
twenty to twenty five classrooms, and somewhere there was a gym fitted into it
all. There was a running track out the
back for the runners and joggers to use when they wanted. Faith headed straight for the main building
so she could go to the front office and get what she needed. She passed a few kids hovered around a black
Mercedes, one girl looked at her as she passed. She was about an inch shorter
than Faith, with such blonde hair it must have been dyed. Her pale blue eyes watched Faith as she
headed over to the building. Faith
shivered and glanced back at her, pausing at the doorway. The girl was still watching her, ignoring
the guys and girls around her, clawing for her attention that she refused to
give. Faith got a better look at her
this time. The girl was wearing make-up,
and a lot of it. She was practically
orange! Faith pushed down a giggle and glanced at her again, pretending to sort
out her bag. The girl looked like a
total s**t. She was wearing a short
skirt and a low-cut top that showed too much flesh. Heels that looked like they would kill her if
she fell covered her little feet. Faith
rolled her eyes to herself and headed into the collage.
Suzie watched Faith leave and nodded to herself. She liked the look of the new girl. With the long, brown hair that curled around her throat and ran straight down her back, the creamy skin and slim figure, Suzie could defiantly work with it. Suzie was always looking for new members of her group, just another toy to play with. And she needed something to take her mind off… him. Even thought she was planning to get him back, she still felt sad that he’d ended it. Maybe if she had some fun with the new girl he might come back, and then Suzie could make her move again and get him back. Then they would get married and have loads of babies and grow old together. Suzie smirked to herself as she watched the new girl disappear into the depths of the collage. She wondered what class she had with the new girl.
Raven parked his car and glanced back in time to see the
girl he’d nearly run over disappear into the school. Wow, killing the new girl on her first day,
not a good thing. Raven chuckled to
himself and killed the engine before looking out his windows at where Suzie and
her group were stood. He wasn’t going to
purposely avoid her; he was just going to get on with his life. He heard her thoughts about the new girl and
chuckled again as he climbed out his car.
He brushed off his dark jeans and straightened out his jacket before
locking his car and heading up to the collage building. All his books and things were in his locker
in the front office, everyone had one, not many people used them because they
were easy to break into, but Raven had yet to have someone run off with his
books. And, personally, he guessed
no-one would. Who would want his old and
battered maths book anyway when they got their own for free from the
collage? Raven’s converses barely made
any noise as he headed towards the building.
It had been raining all night and there were puddles everywhere. Raven had been out last night, running
patrols around the forests and the town. He’d been out with his brother all
night, but he wasn’t even tired.
Raven passed Suzie and her group and didn’t even glance
her way. He could feel her eyes on his back
as he walked but didn’t care, he could also hear her thoughts, loud and
precise, thinking of ways to get him back. He saw her plan and laughed out loud
at it as he headed up the steps to the doors.
He shook his head to himself as he passed through the doors and into the
warm, cool smelling school. The smell of
humans slapped Raven in the face and he grinned. Every human had a different scent to wolves,
although they were all basically the same in the way that it never changed and
they were sort of… plain smells. Raven
could smell the science lab just down the corridor, next to the front
office. It smelt of chemicals and
fire. Raven walked towards the front
office to get his books for his next couple of classes. As he entered the office, he stopped when a
smell hit him. It was like nothing else
he’d smelt before in all his years. It
smelt of flowers, a warm summer’s day, chocolate and honey. He breathed in deeply and looked over to the
front desk and saw the back of the new girl.
The first thing he saw was her dark brown hair running down her back,
stopping at the same level as the bottom of her shoulder blades. She was wearing a thin, white t-shirt that
was a little too tight and showed off her should blades perfectly. The dark blue jeans she was wearing showed
off her perfect slim legs and perfect bottom.
Raven shivered at the sight of her back. He knew who she was, not as in her name, but
what she was born for, who she was
born for... him! He’d found his Soul
Mate and she was now standing less than three feet away, pen in hand, writing
on a form of some sort. Raven had no
idea what she was writing, but he wanted her to turn around, so he could see
the face of his Soul Mate, of the one he was destined to be with. Sometimes wolves never found their Soul Mate,
and sometimes ended up marrying and loving someone else. That was rare, and only happened if the wolf
was looking too hard for his Soul Mate or didn’t even look. Those were the wolves who were more
interested in saving people than actually settling down with a girl and having
babies and marrying them.
Faith paused in the middle of writing her full name,
sensing two eyes on her back. She’d
heard the door go but hadn’t even looked up to see who it was. She wouldn’t know them, she’d only just got
here. She slowly turned her head at the
same time as the person looking at her took a step forwards. Her silvery eyes locked onto Raven deep green
eyes and they both froze. Raven’s body
tensed up slightly as he stared deep into her eyes. Faith’s... relaxed in a weird way, her legs
seemed to turn to jelly and she had to grip the counter with one hand and grip
the pen with the other to stop herself from falling. She sucked in a deep breath and glanced away
from Raven, breaking the spell there had both been under. Raven looked at the lockers and drew in an
unsteady breath. He’d never been told
how forceful the Soul Mate First Look could be.
He had felt like he’d been sucked into the darkness, with only light
being the new girl, who was his and his alone.
No-one else could have her, no-one was going to have her, Raven would
make sure he’d claim her for his own before anyone else could. Not that Raven was usually like this, he didn’t
think of women as objects like so many men out there in the world that thought
of woman as objects, something they can own and control. But Raven was determined to make the new girl
his, that was what the Soul Mate feeling did to the wolf in the pair, it made
them want the other participant in the Mating.
And the other side felt it as well.
Faith swore she could feel her heart swelling as she
shakily finished off the form, feeling the other boy’s watching her again, but
this time she didn’t turn, or she didn’t know what she’d do. Attack him, kiss him or just blindly run out
the door. She breathed in unsteady
breaths as she swore, her scruffy hand writing worse that it usually was
because her hands were shaking lightly. She
could feel the unknown feeling swelling each moment, taking over her body and
her mind. A light tingly feeling swept
over her skin as she felt his gaze on her. Who was this guy?! Faith didn’t even know what the feeling was, it
was completely alien to her. She dropped
the pen, thanked the elderly woman behind the counter and turned to leave, only
to find Raven standing right behind her.
Her hand brushed his chest as she took a step back, sending bolts of electricity
down Faith’s arm and through Raven’s chest.
Faith shivered as it left her skin tingling and left her body wanting
more. Raven’s chest rippled a little, he
held in a growl at the feeling of her touch, trying to fight back the impulse
to grab her and take her away somewhere where no-one could disturb them, just
to be with her and having to never share her with anyone else. Raven stared down to her, his eyes locking
onto hers, sending a heat flash over both of their skin. If someone had told Raven it would be like
this, he’d have personally quit his job at his parents shop, and gone to find
“Erm…” Faith muttered, pulling her bottom lip between her teeth. “I’m… Faith.”
A shiver passed through Raven’s body when her name rolled off her tongue, it made him happy to know, he couldn’t have her without knowing her name.
“I’m Raven,” he told her, the corner of his mouth turning up into a smile.
Faith swore her heart skipped a beat when he smiled at
her. Raven heard her heartbeat pick up
and smiling internally to himself. Faith
fought to keep her breathing from going haywire.
“Nice to meet you, Raven,” she muttered, keeping her eyes
on his handsome face, never wanting to take them off.
“Nice to meet you too, Faith,” Raven said, letting her name roll off his tongue.
When he said her name, her heart beat picked up more as
it sent a heat flash running across her skin.
God, even him looking at her was sending her mad, no matter how much she
wanted to burry herself in his sexy, smooth voice. She could already imagine him wrapping his
arms around her and keeping them there.
Raven caught this thought, the first thought he’d ever caught of
Faith. He shivered slightly, her mental
voice was just as sexy and cute as her physical voice. With people’s mental voices, they were
usually the same as their physical voice, the one that came out of their mouths
via air running over the voice box. But Faith’s
was… different. Her mental voice had a
slight ring to it that made Raven’s mind spin as much as her physical voice
did, if not even more. He was so caught
up in her thoughts that he didn’t even realise his eyes were closed. Her thoughts were so vivid, almost screaming
at him as he saw her thinking about him, wrapping his arms around her and
allowing the fire that threatened to consume them right now consume them in a
moment. Faith was in an inch away from
imagining a kiss when the doors opened again and the one and only Suzie walked
in, obviously trying to look as if she was going to get a book, but really
looking for Raven. Raven knew damn well
that she never used the lockers, afraid that someone would steal her
stuff. Suzie’s eyes locked on Raven’s
back and then glanced at the sliver of Faith’s body that wasn’t blocked by
Raven. Anger flashed through Suzie,
burning in the pit of her stomach and her heart. The b***h was stealing her soon-to-be-again
The door opening pushed Faith’s scent away from Raven and brought in Suzie’s. he stiffened, his jaw setting as he slowly turned around to face Suzie. When he did, an onslaught of horrible thoughts slammed into them, and they weren’t directed at him, they were directed at… Faith! He wanted to block her from them but then remembered what Faith couldn’t read minds like he could. He watched as Faith peered round Raven as Suzie, recognising her as the girl who had been staring at her in the car park before she’d come into the school and met Raven minutes later. Faith shrank back at the look of pure hatred that covered Suzie’s almost orange face. Raven felt sorry for her, Suzie’s thoughts and looks were probably making her feel uncomfortable. Suzie locked her eyes on Raven’s and they looked at each other for a split second before Suzie turned on her heel and stormed out the room, the gust of wind from the door clearing away all of her scent. As they stood there, Faith’s scent slowly crept back up his nostrils, making him shiver again. He turned back to Faith, the skin over her prefect cheek bones slightly pink. From embarrassment? Raven wanted to lay a hand on her cheek and stroke her thumb over that little blush, but couldn’t. He didn’t want to come on too strongly at first. It would kill him, but he was going to take his time with Faith, she deserved his time, not like Suzie, who had rushed everything. Raven smiled down to her, causing her heart to thump almost painfully against her rib cage. Faith smiled back this time, something about his smile made her want to smile. It was stunning on her face, almost blinding Raven as a small gap in-between her lips showed him a sliver of brilliantly white teeth. He took his time properly looking her over this time. Her prefect skin covering her face and neck. It looked so delicate and so smooth. Raven resisted the temptation to press his lips to the hollow at the base of her neck, to feel her pulse strong, to see if her skin tasted the same as her scent, and to find out if her skin was as smooth as it looked. Faith’s blush crept along the rest of her cheeks as she watched him stare at her, taking in all her features. Raven’s favourite feature so far was her eyes, those silvery orbs that stared back, taking in his features and his green eyes. They both stood like this for a few moments until the bell went, making Faith jump. Raven smiled and she smiled back.
“So, Faith,” Raven said, letting her name roll off his tongue, “what have you got next?”
Faith dug a time table out of her pocket and Raven’s eyes locked on her little, delicate hands as she unfolded it. They were so small compared to Raven’s giant hands. She glanced over her time table and smiled up to Raven as his eyes locked onto hers.
“I’ve got Science in Lab 3,” she told him.
Raven smiled hugely.
“Same as me,” he said, not lying. “I’ll take you, shall I?”
Faith nodded a little too quickly and the blush got darker on her creamy skin. Raven smiled as he watched her place her time table back into her pocket. Raven held his arm out and Faith slid her arm through without hesitation. The skin to skin contact set flash fires running across their skin. Raven held a shiver as he felt Faith’s body tremble slightly. They walked down the hall, arm in arm, towards their next class.
