He watches her in the trees, as she rides her bike down the street. His fur catches on a branch and his speed helps him escape. As she turns a corner, he turns to his kind.
"She's ready," He whispers. "It's time to make her one of us."
I ride my bike home from school, and get this creepy feeling someone's watching me. I turn, but only see the woods.
"Lilah.." Some thing calls.
"The woods," I whisper, choking on my breath. I drop my bike, and as if I'm hypnotized, I walk toward the voice, toward the hidden secrets. I step on a thorn, and let out a cry of pain. "Ow!" I rip it out, and the red thorn is now white. I fall to the ground, light-headed and feel my eyes flash, like in a movie. My nose stings, and feels swollen and swells like a balloon. I pat it lightly, and feel a long, distinct snout. "What's happening to me?!" I scream, and a flash of black darts behind a tree. A big, brown eye stares at me, a fuzzy ear peeking out. "Wolf," I whisper, as if it could understand me. I scratch my head and feel soft fur, along with my now padded paws. "I'm a wolf," I whisper. The other wolf steps toward me and says, " Lilah." I take a step closer toward the black wolf. "You can talk?" I ask. He nods. "Lilah, we chose you to help us. I am Black Knight, leader of the Enchanted Forest pack. I'm your new mentor," He replies his voice smooth, like he's known since I was born. "Why me? What was in that thorn?" I ask confused at his simple, yet complicated explanation of who he was.
