The day I spent with Wolf can only be described as the best
day of my life. We ended up skipping school; I re-dressed in my school uniform
and glowered at my cast throughout the whole process.
My arm throbbed but I was able to ignore it and enjoyed being with Wolf.
He dragged me to the mall where he brought me brand new clothes such as jeans,
tank tops, shorts, a lot of skirts and I confess many…underclothes.
We went back to his apartment where he had me try on all the clothes.
I heard nothing from my mother and I wasn’t surprised that she couldn’t care less for my well-being. But it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t hurt any less nor make a part of me hope that she’ll do the motherly thing and care for the child she carried for none months in her womb.
So on Friday we went to the drama club where I rehearsed my lines with Eric and mentally prepared myself for the kiss that we had to share for the play and I had to refrain from leaping off the stage and going straight to where Wolf stood in front of the stage watching us all intently.
“Stop!” He shouted as he climbed the stairs to the stage.
We all paused and watched him as he walked around the stage.
“Let’s have a short break. Come back in five.” He said to us.
Everyone made noises of gratitude and scrambled off the stage to have some lunch and a time to relax. I looked back down at my lines and silently read them to myself, trying to remember every line and show every emotion.
I wanted to be the perfect Juliet. Well as perfect as I can be with a broken wrist.
“You’ll do fine.” Wolf said.
I smiled at him and inclined my head in thanks.
I heard a commotion coming from the front entrance. I craned my neck and saw Melissa limping toward the stage with a rumpled uniform and blood dribbling down the side of her mouth. Her eyes were wild in fright and her was all tangled and
littered with various leaves and twigs.
I dropped my script and rushed over to her.
“Oh my God, Melissa what happened?” I asked her.
She gave me a panicked look but didn’t answer my question.
I put my hand on her arm and steered her toward the seat and gently pushed her
down into the chair.
I crouched down in front of her and looked into her wild and frightened eyes.
“Melissa please tells me what happened?” I asked her softly.
She took a deep shuddering breath as tears leaked out her eyes.
“I thought that I’d forgive him and give him a second chance. At first he was
kind and funny and just being normal and then he was so scary and angry.” She
“Who’re you talking about?” I asked quietly.
“Zane. It was Zane but at the same time it wasn’t him. He would never hurt me!”
She wailed in distress.
I hushed her and calmed her down.
“What did he do?” I asked her.
She touched her bleeding lip and grimaced.
“As I said everything was fine until I told him that I didn’t want to go for a walk. He just…snapped. I tried to run but he caught me and then he…” She trailed off and stared at nothing.
I waved my hand in front of her face but she just sat there like a robot. Her chest
barely moved when she breathed, the only movement was the thin trickle of crimson blood at her mouth.
I looked up at Wolf.
“What’s wrong with her?” I asked worriedly.
He frowned and looked at her.
“I think it’s just shock. She’s too distraught to do anything rational at the moment.” He said.
I couldn’t believe that Zane could do something so horrible. No matter how angry he gets, he will never lay a hand upon a women.
I knew that with every fibre of my being, deep down in my soul.
I got to my feet and turned to face Wolf.
“We need to get her to a hospital.” I said to Wolf.
He nodded and waved Eric over.
“Take her to the emergency room and make sure that her parents are called and informed of their child’s injuries.” Wolf instructed him.
Eric nodded and had others get Melissa out to his car.
I hoped that she’ll be okay and that she’ll tell us what Zane did to her.
I wanted to find out what would have Zane acting this way. And if so how we can put a stop to it.
