I pulled the door open from the knob from outside and walked in to see mom and Jake. While mom was smiling deeply, Jake had a slight smile as he held the cup of coffee in his palm.. Their attention catapulted to me almost as soon as I jammed the door shut..
“Oh, she’s here” mom said to Jake and then smiled at me.
“Mom, shouldn’t you be at work by now?” I asked, bringing my gaze back to her and away from Jake.
“I took a break for the rest of the day” she said.
Well, she had told me they were having a five days programme and it was supposed to commence today or was it tomorrow?
“Okay, I’ll go freshen up first. Did you wait for too long, Jake?” I asked him.
“Not for too long, your mom was a pretty good company, I lost count of time after meeting her” he said and I could see mom smile.
“Oh good. I’ll be back” I informed him before walking to my room. I pulled off my jacket and threw it on the bed before heading to my dressing table, I checked out my outfit.
It didn’t look so bad. It’s just late lunch after all, nothing really special. I touched my hair and decided to repack it when I heard my door creak open, I looked from my mirror and saw mom walking in..
“For how long did you plan on keeping it away from me?” She asked, walking behind me.
“Keeping what away from you?” I asked as if oblivious of what she was talking about.
“That,” I saw her finger point toward the door “your boyfriend” she said before collecting my hair from me, she began working on it.
“I wasn’t hiding him away from you. The thing is I’m not even dating him. I mean I know he introduced himself to you as my boyfriend but..” I wet my lower lip with my tongue “He had asked me out and misunderstood my answer so he thinks we’re dating and I don’t know how to explain it properly to him now cos he seem super excited about it!” I said.
“It’d hurt him pretty bad,” she said, “but then maybe you should just date him for real” mom said and I gave her a look from the mirror, she caught it from my reflection and frown..
“What? He’s a cheerful guy and good looking too and he seem to really like you, since he doesn’t know that you’re not dating him, instead of hurting his feelings then you should just date him” she said, pinning my hair in a bun.
“I don’t know about that mom. I mean, I just can’t give it another try” I said.
“Do you love him?” She asked, barely letting me finish my sentence.
“Um..” I bit my lower lip. “I don’t know, it’s kind of complicated” I replied plainly..
She let go of my hair and twirl me around gently to face her.
“Just follow your heart, do whatever you feel is right but think about yourself too so you don’t get hurt after it” she said and I nodded..
“Thanks. I should go now” I said.
“Yeah, you should!” She said before letting go of my shoulder..
I felt a cold palm on my shoulder and I looked up to see Priola, she walked up to me.
“It’s time” she said and I nodded. “You should not forget son, to always follow your heart. It’s like your second helper when I’m not here” she said and I nodded.
“Here,” she gave me a big round green apple, “You can use this for a start” she said and I took it from her, nodding with a smile.
“Okay,” she sighed “for now, physically, goodbye!”
“Goodbye Priola!” I said and she began walking away. I didn’t care to follow her trail with my gaze as they were fixed on the big apple in my hand..
I brought it up and drew it to my nose, taking a long sniff at it.. It was odorless and completely uninviting.
I lifted it to my lips and took a small bite at it and almost immediately the bitter and choking taste almost made me spit it out but instead, I swallowed it..
Immediately, it caught up in my stomach and began making me churn; squeezing my internal organs and giving me a queasy and irritated feeling. I felt completely sick and dehydration rose up to my throat.. My palms moved to my neck, squeezing it to ease the pain but they only increased.. I could feel the heaviness in my throat and in almost all other part of my body. Slowly, I felt my transformation begin and I fell on the floor; feeling weak and thirsty with my strength totally sapped out.
I took one hand off my neck as I caught sight of a movement in a nearby bush, I reached for it and caught the big rat before it could run past me, it wriggled in my flurry palm.. I chopped off the head with my teeth and suckled hungrily at the large cut, drinking and draining every single ounce of blood that it contained.. I let it off when it was completely dry and bloodless. Gradually, I felt my strength coming back, though still a little weak, I was able stand on my feet. Grunts emanating from my mouth, I charged forward..
It’s time for a bigger hunt!
