CHAPTER 23
His eyes grew darker, black almost and something omitious swirled inside of them.
“Who did that to you?” He asked slowly, with a calculated and soft oice but there was a noticeable edge to it. One that said not to le ot defy him right now.
“No one, I walked intro a door,” I said an shrugged a
“I’m clumsy,”
“Gabrella,” he said and leaned closer,
“Who hit you?” His voice sent shivers down my spine, it was low and lark. My eyes flickered to his lips for a mere secol before I looked back up into his eyes. Why did he even cate?
“Who would hit me?” I asked and looked at him, awaiting to see if he had a clue of what I had endured for all my life.
He let me go, just like he was pulling himself away.
came to apologize.” he what?
*I shouldn’t have gone behind your back like that with your parents, I’m sorry.”
“Why did you?” I asked him. He shrugged a shoulder nonchalantly and placed his hands in his pockets,
“I wanted to know more about your past and who raised you, I wanted to see a glimpse of you were,”
“Who I was? You thought that by meeting them you would get to know me? I hope you found what you were looking for.” I spat and walked toward the door. He thought he could get to me know through any parents? So that’s what he thought of me, that I was like them.
“I did ” he said and I stopped in the doorframe.
I didn’t turn around but I listened.
*i leanered that not all people are the product of their upbringing, som rise above the pain and bullshit of their parents.”
“Where you the one who told them not to bring my brothers?” I asked without turning.
“No.”
“I learned something to. That the love, protection and kindness of parent for a child, doesn’t guarantee him to grow into a good man. He didn’t say anything and I didn’t turn to see his reaction. I walked away.
I went to find Cassy but instead walked into someone else. This day was just getting better and better.
“Hey, if it with a pout.
miss moneybags. My car died yesterday, could you buy me a new one?” Sam said and tilted her head to the side.
“No, sorry, but next time take a hint from your car and die with it, said and smiled.
“What did you just say to me?” She seethed.
*Back off, Sam, I’m not in the mood for a catfight,”

“Oh, it wouldnt be much of a fight. From what I’ve heard you’d rather pay
“Gabby,” Ah shit. Marie walked out in all her glory. Her eyes swept over the pack members who were currently in my way.
They all backed away and some looked down on the floor. Sam put on her best puppy dog eyes and looked up through her lashes.
“Hi, Marie,”
“Hello, Sam,” she said and looked sternly at them.
“Is there an issue here?” She asked.
“No, we were just headed in to eat and ran into Gabby on the way,”
“Well then, continue. Gabby, I need to steal you for a moment,” all wanted in this moment was Casandra and me in a afe, drinking coffee and eating cake. That was literally all i wanted. Well, that and a good escape from this hellhole.
Aiden stepped out and walked over to us.
“Are you ready?” Marie asked him and he nodded his head with a devilish little smirk.
“I’m ready,” I felt a surreal chill in my body spiking out and making me feel unsettled.

Why did it feel like I was still being watched? It wasn’t the first time I had had this feeling that I w

“There’s a fair in town. Games, rollercoasters, stands with every imaginable snack and everyone is very eager from the front seat as we drove into town.
I drew in a deep breath.
“That’s great,” I said and smiled. Marie and her husband had stood up for me from the start. I didn’t want to do anything to make them feel like I wasn’t grateful for what they had done.
The lights were flashing and the kids were laughing loudly as they won a stuffed animal while eating cotton candy.
There were a lot of people there. Like, a lot.
It seemed like the entire pack had gathered to have fun but this was anything but. I wanted to run and hide in the crowd, not draw
them all towards me.
The car stopped and I knew it was only a
y a matter of time.
Marie and her husband exited the car.
I opened the door but Aiden leaned over and closed it shut.
“Remember to smile, we’re a happy newly wed couple,” he said and smirked at me.
“Yeah, like the kidnapper and his victim,” I said and opened the door. I heard Aidens chuckle from behind me but didn’t mind him. People began walking toward us right away.

“Hi, it’s so nice to finally niert you!” A woman said with a gleaming smile as she came up to us.
The children saw us and began running to come up and say hi.
“Hi,” a little boy said, waving his tiny hand.
“Hi there,” I said and squatted down to talk to him at his eye level.
“Play with me,” he said and circled his fingers around two of mine, trying to drag me with him.
“I’d love to,” I said, suddenly captivated by this little bundle of happiness and energy.
The others followed behind us and I said hi to the people who came up to meet me.
I fell into it, it was natural and everyone was so extremely kind.
“You’re so pretty,” a girl, not many years younger than myself, said and gushed over my hair,
“So are you,” I said and smiled, placing my hand on her arm.
We played games, ate snacks and danced on the piano machine they had laying on the ground with a screen attached to it.
The day passed so quickly and suddenly the sun had disappeared and its place the moon rose,
“Mommy, I’m cold!” I took of my sweater and handed it to the little girl, nicely tied it around her and she leaned into me. We stood there for a while just hugging.
“Look at that,” a man said and pointed up at the sky. The stars were so visible even though the lights from carousels were shooting
like crazy.
“Pretty!” The kids said and looked up at the sky.
“I want one,” one of the boys said and pouted.
“So grab it,” I said and smiled at him before looking back up at the star.
He tried, he reached up his arm and tried to grab the star.
“I can’t reach it,” he whined. I sat down on the ground next to him and the kids sat down with me.
“Do you know why?” I asked and he nodded his head.
“I’m to short,” he said with a sad pout.
“No, it’s because the most beautiful things in this life aren’t meant to be touched or kept to ourselves. They are up there so to be protected from greed and lust and so that everyone, for ever, can experience their beauty,” I said and the boy looked at me. He then Jooked up at the stars.
“We should leave them there,” he said and leaned toward me.
The others did as well and we sat there like that, watching the stars together.
I looked to the side and saw Aiden looking at us, or more s pressed into a thin line.
specifically he was looking at me. His eyes were narrowed and his lips were

I shook my head and plastered on a smile
We were back in our room after the day and night we had at the far I was chasted, wanting to crawl into bed. It had been a day. full of different events that causes different emotions and I was a wred. However fun it had been tonight I still had the image of my parents fresh in my mind after their visit. One I never wanted to live through again.
elax.!
I went under the covers and turned of the lights, Alden was out It was nice to just be able to relax.
“Gabby, come outside!” Edmund said on the phone. I hurried out and saw him and my brothers in a car on the driveway completely dark and everyone was asleep.
“Here, go to this adress. Housing has already been taken care of. Stay there, it’s a human town so no one will know who you are. Keep your head down for a while and we’ll call when it’s dear. You’re finally getting out of here,” the joy that filled my body couldn’t be

“You can live whatever life you want now, Gabby, it’s all up to you, I hugged them, felt their warmth. A terrifying scream left my lips as a hand wrapped around my throat and
and I was pulled away from them.
One by one they were killed right in front of my eyes,
“See what you’ve done now, seetheart, why couldn’t you just stay pin?” My mom asked as my dad held a strong grip around my throat, stoping my air supply.
I was tossed into a car and driven back to the pack.
Aiden was waiting outside and as I was tossed down on the ground in front of him but I didn’t land on the grass, instead I suddenly landed on concrete with bars in front my face. The cellar door slammed shut andwere locked.
“Maybe this will teach not to leave your husband,” I grabbed the bus and started pulling, Screaming till my lungs ran out of air.
I sat up in the bed quicker than ever before with sweat dripping down my head, I was soaking wet from sweat and so were the sheets. Aiden was beside me, sound asleep.
I breathed heavily and looked around the room.
“Holy shit,” I whispered and dragged a hand over my face. I grabbed my phone and wanted to call my brothers but I knew that I couldnt. My parents couldn’t hnd out. They would call me when they had a plan, Edmund said so. But this dream, was it a warning?
