We were connected.copyright protection71PENANAtCgFkEzapv75Please respect copyright.PENANAhmrjOGMrPg

As weird as it seemed, I shared a bond with my new lycanthropy teacher, Mr Grayson, from the moment I met him.copyright protection71PENANAtCOFcNPze975Please respect copyright.PENANA4O9NILkzrh

"I've been waiting for you for many years, Weslyn." I stared up at him, a strange blend of curiosity and confusion filling me. "The last time I saw you, you were barely 9 years old."copyright protection71PENANANe8gWiuNjb75Please respect copyright.PENANAg6v03alheY

9 years old. The start of my memories. For years I tried mindlessly to remember my childhood before that age, only to be attacked by pain, that burst at the sides of my head. It was almost unreal; impossible. copyright protection71PENANAwNONs8s1jR75Please respect copyright.PENANApwkRQ9xCAm

When I started to question it, my mother told me of the hit and run accident that killed my father and gave me amnesia. The explanation made perfect sense. It even justified the long scar that ran along my back; almost as if I had been slashed open with a blade.copyright protection71PENANAxMulsH9hgo75Please respect copyright.PENANASFa1tTNNse

But after finding out my mother had went through so much caution to hide my birth place from me, I had no way in believing what she said.copyright protection71PENANAr3CAkzSOmc75Please respect copyright.PENANA4JlAJoK5GZ

There was only one way to find out the truth. It was, after all, the reason I had come to Gray Valley in the first place.copyright protection71PENANA0TZOGrX9tg75Please respect copyright.PENANA45wpWmytY8

"By Luna, you know me?" I asked, not particularly surprised. copyright protection71PENANA002vmvcvMs75Please respect copyright.PENANAQRN1TgUG3n

After arriving in the town, I had so many strange experiences, I doubted I would be astonished by anything.copyright protection71PENANAUewwOQ6GEt75Please respect copyright.PENANAV87gIRFtWm

"You could say that."copyright protection71PENANATFmSt3kqcO75Please respect copyright.PENANAt0rZpnmXRk

"What can you tell me about my father and mother?" I demanded. He raised an eyebrow scornfully.copyright protection71PENANAHdOJIbfVH275Please respect copyright.PENANA6HcUJ5aEMe

"What makes you think I'll tell you anything?"copyright protection71PENANAoBgU84KeLp75Please respect copyright.PENANA1Hn9Y60EAW

My mind spun, as I realised he was right. What did I have that could possibly make me get him spill what he knew? I had no way of leverage on him or anyone. Gritting my teeth, I looked down and saw his hand gripping my wrist. And then, it clicked.copyright protection71PENANAHF44xy7RYk75Please respect copyright.PENANA03Xs3nPplH

"You're touching your student," I replied. "I can get you fired for that." copyright protection71PENANAGFxvpgGEbn75Please respect copyright.PENANAKrpXl82wNO

His eyes met mine and to my astonished, he recoiled. I guess I was wrong. Some things would never fail to surprise me. He released my arm from his hold.copyright protection71PENANAGzYXt72elO75Please respect copyright.PENANALOw8XveYaO

"You're father and mother were Wesley and Lianna Grayson," he started. "They were both born and brought up in Gray Valley. So was I... and you."copyright protection71PENANAD3tH70ffSe75Please respect copyright.PENANAVbSSDWgtmB

"Me?" Once again, this confused me. "I was brought up here?"copyright protection71PENANAzyU64knKZy75Please respect copyright.PENANAa63A4oI6Vv

"But of course," his smirk returned. "You wouldn't remember, would you?" I stared at him. What was he going on about? "So tell me, what was the pathetic cover story your mother gave you for moving states away from your birth place. Not to mention, of course, your significant memory loss..."copyright protection71PENANA8F87DCeFQA75Please respect copyright.PENANAVGksPiX4g7

"It was no cover story," I bit out. "My father died in a hit and run accident that injured my mother and I. I had amnesia from the crushing my skull onto the car door and the glass shards slashed my back, which is why I have-"copyright protection71PENANAtuDWcLXs1Q75Please respect copyright.PENANASbjL4WHkp3

"Clever," he interrupted. "That was extremely clever of her. The fact that she justified the scar made it a whole lot more believable, didn't it Weslyn?" copyright protection71PENANAHApBHtV4dU75Please respect copyright.PENANAWAaZafoTlj

I furrowed my eyebrows, as I recalled the time she told me of the accident. She had added my back being slashed several minutes afterwards; almost like an afterthought. Back then, it made sense that she was reluctant to speak of it but now that the doubt was planted, there was no way I could trust her completely.copyright protection71PENANADlAMsdpHTg75Please respect copyright.PENANAohZJJP2HTi

"It did," I admitted. "I could believe her more when she explained the scar... but if she was really lying..." Who can I put my faith in? copyright protection71PENANAhmKVjXHgpI75Please respect copyright.PENANAOMu7xz4fTt

"You don't know who to trust anymore," he finished. My lips parted at his statement. How did he know exactly what I was thinking. "You can believe me." copyright protection71PENANA66jwI0ZD5d75Please respect copyright.PENANAjP4uPeJd75

I carefully studied at the man before me. His stormy, gray eyes fixed with unfathomable intensity; deafeningly black hair, darker than the night sky; smooth ivory skin shone with determination. Nothing about him made me feel I couldn't trust him but at the same time, I didn't feel I could either.copyright protection71PENANAyJy9v1nUJg75Please respect copyright.PENANAwwmwf5lhMf

So I asked him.copyright protection71PENANAa0CVWVSDch75Please respect copyright.PENANAAB15JyENOy

"Why should I trust you?"copyright protection71PENANAmjoFP6GOKL75Please respect copyright.PENANAh7olCdzlqH

"I want to protect you, Weslyn; save you. I'm not going to let anyone else hurt you." copyright protection71PENANA1iuAr0CPVl75Please respect copyright.PENANAqXdNutSQKF

Again, it didn't make sense. I didn't even know him, yet he claimed to want to defend me from danger. Who was he? What did he know of my past? But most of all what was there for me to be protected from?copyright protection71PENANA55mH1iDTWQ75Please respect copyright.PENANA5lg6r0F6Ot

"But, why?" I repeated. "Why defend me?"copyright protection71PENANAbi9zYYGENq75Please respect copyright.PENANAE5B3reh1AI

This time, he smiled. Not smirk, but a genuine smile.copyright protection71PENANApPJUpbU20P75Please respect copyright.PENANAI1FVOaoH09

"I thought you would have figured it out by now, Weslyn. Surely I wasn't the only one who felt the bond. Even if you are missing memories... surely, you can't have forgotten your family."copyright protection71PENANAn5VKNW2qQZ75Please respect copyright.PENANAm5vDbWDR3r

"W-what?" I stuttered. family. Just the word itself made hope flutter in my stomach. "W-who are y-you?"copyright protection71PENANAh1iqBgpiUd75Please respect copyright.PENANAlHxWLZb20L

Family. There was something in the way he uttered the words... Almost knowing.copyright protection71PENANAIk2resD9uD75Please respect copyright.PENANAKIMqEAA3hA

Maybe, I wasn't lost. Maybe I was exactly where I needed to be.copyright protection71PENANAYSIUCwRFXH75Please respect copyright.PENANAdDFIhRFUII

"I may not seem it, but I've missed you, my little sister."copyright protection71PENANAFeJXEld4D7
