BREAKING BOND ||
To say I was shocked after listening to Angel’s breakdown of my stupidity would be an understatement and seeing her crying because of my bad judgments broke my heart. I walked to where she was seated and pulled her into my arms. I rested her head on my shoulders and tried to pacify her as I thought of a way to make amends for my stupidity.
I pondered on all she said and I found a loophole in Lucy’s plan, ” Hey Angel, listen” I urged her as she was close to sleeping on my shoulders, “yea, what is it” she asked. “If what you said earlier is Lucy’s plan then she must need me to turn her dad because I am the custodian of the other beast. I house it. If I don’t turn her dad, her plan will fail probably that’s why she is still keeping me because she already has what she needs from me. “I explained to a wide-eyed looking Angel.” Richard you Beauty. That’s true, I didn’t look at it from that perspective. I think you now have the leverage you need on her. So what’s the plan now? “she asked, already back to her lively self.
“I will need to find persons to turn but that’s where the problem lies, where can I find people who really know what they are up against and very aware that their lives will never remain the same again. Jason is a different case.” I said to her. “Um I think you should start with your football team, they know you and you know you, problem solved.” she said like it’s so easy to do. “It’s not as easy you say it , those kids have parents, they have their lives and dreams, I can’t just take that from them just because of my personal vendetta. That’s not cool.” I told her. “Turning them won’t stop them from achieving their goals and dreams, you just have to be the leader that you are and make rules to guide them, remember you don’t have much time left.” she explained. “Alright, I will have a meeting with them soon, but I must break the bond with Lucy first else she will have a connection with each person I turn. Damn, Lucy is really smart.” I said.
“Yea, she is, but you are smarter.” she said as she played with the stubble on my face, “so have you decided who your soul mate will be? ” she asked. “Umm, if I have you will be the first to know. I think we should be on our way now, it’s getting late. So who owns this house?” I asked. “Will tell you another time, let’s go Richy” she teased.
When she called me Richy, I suddenly remembered Daphne, that’s what she calls me, sweet woman. “Something wrong, Richy? ” she asked. “Nothing, let’s go” I replied. “is it Daphne?” She asked raising her brows, “how….did you know that? Just how much do you know about me” I asked surprised by how much she knows about me. “A lot more than you can imagine, shy niggi” she replied. “Shy niggi” that’s what I was called by my fellow comrades because I found it difficult to talk to a woman after Daphne’s death. How did she know that? ” move your legs, shy niggi”she teased. “Don’t call me that” I said, “or what, what will you do ” she teased again laughing this time. I chased after her as we both ran down the passage way.
I have been calling Richard since school closed to see if I could come home but he was unavailable, kept getting his voice mail. He doesn’t behave like this, where the here was he and again he is blocked telepathically from me. Where the hell is he? I called Angel but she said he wasn’t with him. I needed to make sure the blood in that black book were completely dried off.
I decided to check him at home but he wasn’t there too. Probably he is busy, will check on him tomorrow then.
Coach has been acting weirdly the past few days. He will seem moody now, then the next time you see him, he is all smiles and happy. I have never seen him this unstable, something was bothering him that he doesn’t want to share.
The other night while I transformed for the 29th time, I heard his wolf growling and howling in pain. It was really heartbreaking to see him like that. Although I have my own problems with Chelsea and her new boyfriend but his was more of a concern to me.
Now, he sent me a message that I should text the football team members that we will be meeting at the basketball court from 5:30 in the morning, no late coming. WTH, 5:30 am, I am seriously beginning to doubt Mr Richard’s sanity
I got to the school 5 am prompt haven explained to the security personnel the previous day of a meeting holding early this morning. I sat and waited for them patiently.
I chose so early this morning because I know today is an Holiday, the people of America celebrates Martin Luther King, and I know Lucy enough to remain on the bed, thereby preventing her from listening to what I was about to tell this kids. This meeting is a very crucial one and it will determine my position in the coming war – the losing or the winning side.
Jason was the first to arrive by 5:20am, and then the rest came later. They were all settled by 5:40, I had taken notes of those who came after 5:30 and decided within me what their positions will be within the pack.
“Hey boys, come over here, I don’t want to be heard by an outsider and Luke, go close the doors” I said, the court is big and of course there will be echoes. After they have assembled as I wanted, twenty-one in all. I looked at each of them and asked, “Who wants to win and break this jinz of not beating team A for the last six seasons now?”. They all raised their hands. “Good, but can someone among you tell me what he has noticed about the other team,” I asked, “Yes Jake,”.
” I think they are faster than we are because in all of the years I have watched them, not one of us has ever been able to outrun any of their players. Their distribution is excellent and their throws are exceptional “he answered to several nods and approval.
” Alright, do you all agree with Jake? ” I asked,” yea, he couldn’t have said it any better “were the answers I got to my question.” Do you guys believe in the supernatural? ” I asked and I got mixed answers – yes, no and not sure.” Well, whether you believe or not. The truth is, the supernatural exists, God does exists and other vile creatures. Horrible things happen here every night, have you ever asked yourself why the major health issue in this town has always been anaemia. The truth is, the members of the other team are mainly supernatural beings, they are no more humans and that’s why it is seemingly impossible to beat them because : they know your next move, they see your runs in slow motion, they see your tackles before it touches them and If you don’t even the odds, you will always remain the laughing stock of Aidenville. “I stopped and looked at their faces again and it seems all of what I said have sunk in,so I continued.
” Balancing the scales will cost you as all great things do, it will cost you your death ” I said with confusion written all over their faces.” I meant you will be immortal, that’s the price and you will all have to accommodate new beings in you. You will follow strict rules, every rule broken will come with a punishment and whatever you see next will remain between us . No one must hear of what we just discussed. Am I understood? ” they all chorused,” yes sir”. “Now don’t freak out from what you see next. Jason come here, let’s do this” I said. I threw balls with speed and precision and Jason was able to catch them all, his runs were better now, he was faster. He must have been transforming frequently. I heard “waoh, cool, awesome, sick” and all kinds. “Alright, thanks Jason, tomorrow we will meet at a secured location. You will tell your parents you are going to the woods with Mr Richard for some hard training. Be at the park by 5 in the evening. You can go.” they left hurriedly. “Jason, make sure their lips remain sealed” he nodded to my order.
Tonight I will break the bond and pick a new mate.
