Is It Time For Prom Already?Mature

I sighed and sat back in my chair and blocked out the sound of the teacher droning on about some stupid project that we had to do before Prom.
I've been back at school for about two days, and it's been a week since that night at Wolf's empty apartment. The pain of seeing him gone was still so fresh that I cried at night.

I fought through yet another wave of tears and gently rubbed at my wounds. They had lost most of the raw look and took on more of a healed pink. I still had to change the dressings everyday, but the stitches had been taken out and the wound was left to heal by it's self.

"Alright class, make sure you look up ideas and bring it in tomorow." I snapped to attention and saw that everyone were standing up and making their way over to the door.

I met Melissa at the door and we set off to our lockers together.
"So Akira, who are you taking to the prom?" She asked me as we walked along the hallway. I stopped and looked at the door to the office Wolf used to have. A lump formed in my throat at the sight of the empty office.
"Akira?" I blinked and looked at Melissa.
"I'm sorry, what'd you say?" I asked her. She frowned at me and grabbed my elbow and steered me away from the office.

"I asked who were you taking to the prom." She said as we stopped next to the lockers. I frowned and shook my head.
"I'm not taking anybody, I don't think I even want to go." I said quietly. She gasped and looked at me in shock.
"No, you have to go! You bought that amazing dress, and we just got your shoes!" She said in a shocked tone. I grimaced and shrugged.

"I can't wear that dress, I don't want everyone to see my scras." I whispered. she scoffed and rolled her eyes.
"Akira, who cares about your scars! That dress needs to be worn!" I bit my lip and shrugged again. Melissa sighed and closed her locker door and faced me.

"If you don't go, then I won't either." She said to me seriously. I gritted my teeth together.
"That's blackmail." I said to her. She grinned and shook her head.
"If it's the only way to get you to go, then why not?" She said sweetly. I laughed and closed my locker door.
"Fine, I'll go." She clapped her hands and did a happy dance.
"This is going to be so much fun!" She exclamied. I bared my teeth in a faux grin and gingerly hoisted my bag up onto  my shoulder.

I was about to walk off when a familiar scent wafted past me, freezing me in place.
"Wolf..." I whispered. Melissa looked at me strangly.
"Are you okay?" She asked me. I nodded and looked around.
My eyes widened as a male with the same dark hair and build as Wolf rounded the corner and disappeared from sight.

"I've got to go." I said to Melissa. She opened her mouth to reply but I was gone before she could say anything.
I sprinted down the hallway, avoiding slamming into people and dodging various teachers. I turned around the corner and slammed into someone.

The scent of him hit me straight away, making me dizzy.
"Wolf..." I whispered again. I looked up but froze. He was my Wolf, but...not. His face was younger, one with more youth and less adult. His hair was longer and his shoulders slimmer. But his eyes, they were the same. Wise with knowledge and hardened by age.
He smiled down at me, and smiled a beautiful angelic smile.
"Akira." He murmured. I grinned and burrowed into him. I wrapped my hands around his slimmer waist and soaked in the warmth of him.

"You're back." I whispered into his chest. I looked up at him as tears dabbed at my cheeks.
"You were gone. I was alone..." He placed his fingertip on my lips.
"Hush." He whispered to me. I swallowed and nodded. I felt my bag starting to get heavier and I dropped it and winced when my wounds pulled.

Wolf saw the wince and frowned. He hooked a finger into the collar of my shirt and pulled it and peered down at my collar bone. I saw the rage enter his eyes, the sorrow and the pain.
I pushed his hand away and snuggled into him.
"My beautiful Akira..." He whispered and kissed me.

The End
