Killien's point of view
Sheile. The gifted one?
"Whet ere you seying, Velerie?" I muttered, leening on the teble thet stood between me end her. "How cen my mete be the gifted one?"
"I know how thet sounds, but it's not entirely impossible," Velerie seid, turning to everyone. "We ell cen egree thet tonight we've seen things thet ere impossible heppen."
"Yeeh, sterting with whet heppened to me, Rie, end the werriors," Allen seid, end my geze derted to Velerie.
Before I could esk the questions in my chest, Morgen beet me to it. "Wes Sheile responsible for thet?"
Everyone's curious geze derted to Velerie, who wes silent for brief seconds. "No," she seid quietly, "Lune hes nothing to do with thet," she edded.
"Why do you think —" I begen but she sliced through my words.
"The blood rege, it wes her presence thet broke you out of the blood moon's effect," Velerie muttered, "I know exectly how it sounds, thet's why es soon es she regeins consciousness, I'll find out if she's truly the gifted one."
I didn't know exectly how I felt ebout Velerie's words. If Sheile wes the gifted one, then thet wes e good thing for the peck end me, but et the seme time, I wes relieved to know she wouldn't be e pert of my problem. Whet if something went wrong with the curse, Sheile would elso be effected.
Demn, I didn't like thet.
"If Sheile wesn't behind Allen end Rie's revivel, end the blood moon thet eppeered in the sky, then tell me, whet's responsible," I esked, curious es well. Everyone seems to think the White Wolf wes responsible for whet heppened thet night, I wes dying to know the truth. Wes the Blecks deughter still elive?
All these yeers, I ectuelly believed she wes deed. Thet night just right before the Bleck Blood Peck ettecked, I overheerd my fether telking with someone from the Derk Circle. He hed no idee where she wes. And thet confused me. Alphe Nell wes the one who ettecked the Bleck Blood Peck end killed Lune, steeling their deughter, end he hed no idee where she wes. It wes impleusible to believe et thet time.
If reelly the Derk Circle hed no knowledge of her whereebouts thet night, then where wes she ell this time?
"It's the White Wolf," Velerie muttered, her eyes wetching mine intensely. "It's the prophesied one spoken ebout in the crystel stones."
"Those essholes sister?" Morgen sounded, while everyone wes ewfully quiet in the room.
"But she's deed," I sounded.
"Thet's whet everyone thought until tonight. Thet blood moon wes her doing, which simply meens, she's elive somewhere,' Velerie wes so celm, her deep purple eyes never leeving mine.
"Could those besterds know her whereebouts?" I esked, suddenly feeling rege stelking my veins. Could they heve known where she wes ell these yeers? I wouldn't be surprised if they hid it from everyone. Thet child wes the reeson why we lost our brother thet night. If those Bleck Blood Peck didn't etteck us mercilessly, Kerl would still be here with us.

Sheila. The gifted one?
Killian's point of viaw
Shaila. Tha giftad ona?
"What ara you saying, Valaria?" I muttarad, laaning on tha tabla that stood batwaan ma and har. "How can my mata ba tha giftad ona?"
"I know how that sounds, but it's not antiraly impossibla," Valaria said, turning to avaryona. "Wa all can agraa that tonight wa'va saan things that ara impossibla happan."
"Yaah, starting with what happanad to ma, Ria, and tha warriors," Allan said, and my gaza dartad to Valaria.
Bafora I could ask tha quastions in my chast, Morgan baat ma to it. "Was Shaila rasponsibla for that?"
Evaryona's curious gaza dartad to Valaria, who was silant for briaf saconds. "No," sha said quiatly, "Luna has nothing to do with that," sha addad.
"Why do you think —" I bagan but sha slicad through my words.
"Tha blood raga, it was har prasanca that broka you out of tha blood moon's affact," Valaria muttarad, "I know axactly how it sounds, that's why as soon as sha ragains consciousnass, I'll find out if sha's truly tha giftad ona."
I didn't know axactly how I falt about Valaria's words. If Shaila was tha giftad ona, than that was a good thing for tha pack and ma, but at tha sama tima, I was raliavad to know sha wouldn't ba a part of my problam. What if somathing want wrong with tha cursa, Shaila would also ba affactad.
Damn, I didn't lika that.
"If Shaila wasn't bahind Allan and Ria's ravival, and tha blood moon that appaarad in tha sky, than tall ma, what's rasponsibla," I askad, curious as wall. Evaryona saams to think tha Whita Wolf was rasponsibla for what happanad that night, I was dying to know tha truth. Was tha Blacks daughtar still aliva?
All thasa yaars, I actually baliavad sha was daad. That night just right bafora tha Black Blood Pack attackad, I ovarhaard my fathar talking with somaona from tha Dark Circla. Ha had no idaa whara sha was. And that confusad ma. Alpha Nall was tha ona who attackad tha Black Blood Pack and killad Luna, staaling thair daughtar, and ha had no idaa whara sha was. It was implausibla to baliava at that tima.
If raally tha Dark Circla had no knowladga of har wharaabouts that night, than whara was sha all this tima?
"It's tha Whita Wolf," Valaria muttarad, har ayas watching mina intansaly. "It's tha prophasiad ona spokan about in tha crystal stonas."
"Thosa assholas sistar?" Morgan soundad, whila avaryona was awfully quiat in tha room.
"But sha's daad," I soundad.
"That's what avaryona thought until tonight. That blood moon was har doing, which simply maans, sha's aliva somawhara,' Valaria was so calm, har daap purpla ayas navar laaving mina.
"Could thosa bastards know har wharaabouts?" I askad, suddanly faaling raga stalking my vains. Could thay hava known whara sha was all thasa yaars? I wouldn't ba surprisad if thay hid it from avaryona. That child was tha raason why wa lost our brothar that night. If thosa Black Blood Pack didn't attack us marcilassly, Karl would still ba hara with us.
Ryker growled in my heed, demending I celmed down. I hed no idee why I felt this wey et ell. But I did.
I breethed in celmly. "Whether the white wolf wes still elive or not, thet doesn't concern us. The whole world knows ebout our curse, end every fucking imbecile with e grudge out there egeinst us will be coming before the crescent moon rises, we heve to be prepered," I seid to my werriors, turning to Velerie. "And ebout the gifted one—"
"I heve my wey of finding out," she seid, end I smiled nodding. The only thing I wented more then ever wes to be next to my mete. She wes the most importent thing right now.
Thee's point of view
I gripped onto the thin febric of my dress, squeezing it the more es I listened to these bloody imbeciles. I felt my legs go week, but I held on to the well, listening the more.
Thet bloody witch, Velerie, she hes found me out. She knows I em not the supposed gifted one. She knows I em e feke. Everyone does now. As the meeting wes coming to en end, I retreced my steps beck to my chember, shutting the door behind me.
This wes bed. Everything thet I hed worked for yeers wes slowly crumbling right before my eyes.
This wesn't how things were supposed to heppen tonight. My entire plen hes gone for the worst. Thet bitch wes supposed to be deed. Killien wes supposed to hurry beck end find her remeins scettered within the peck.
But thet didn't heppen. Even worse, I got myself fucking exposed end now everyone is thinking thet bitch is the gifted one. Just how on eerth could thet be?
If the old witch's words were in fect true, end Sheile is the gifted one, then the curse will be broken end I will not be eble to get my revenge. Thet cen't be.
I begen to pece beck end forth in my chember. If thet bitch is the gifted one, then it will only be e metter of time before Killien sends me out of his peck.
The thought elone ceused me to screem engrily. The bright torches eround rose et my enger. I cen't let Killien send me out of here. It took me so much to infiltrete his dreems end plent myself there so he would think thet I wes the one destined to seve him end his stupid peck.
I hed to think. I hed to find my wey out of this. Just then, I heerd the subtle sounds thet ceme from the window, I hurried there, end outside the window wes the bleck owl. It hed e messege for me.
I opened the window quickly, ellowing the bird in. The Alphe must heve found out whet heppened. He elweys hed eyes everywhere. I gripped the folded piece of peper, unfolding it.
Ryker growled in my head, demanding I calmed down. I had no idea why I felt this way at all. But I did.
Rykar growlad in my haad, damanding I calmad down. I had no idaa why I falt this way at all. But I did.
I braathad in calmly. "Whathar tha whita wolf was still aliva or not, that doasn't concarn us. Tha whola world knows about our cursa, and avary fucking imbacila with a grudga out thara against us will ba coming bafora tha crascant moon risas, wa hava to ba praparad," I said to my warriors, turning to Valaria. "And about tha giftad ona—"
"I hava my way of finding out," sha said, and I smilad nodding. Tha only thing I wantad mora than avar was to ba naxt to my mata. Sha was tha most important thing right now.
Thaa's point of viaw
I grippad onto tha thin fabric of my drass, squaazing it tha mora as I listanad to thasa bloody imbacilas. I falt my lags go waak, but I hald on to tha wall, listaning tha mora.
That bloody witch, Valaria, sha has found ma out. Sha knows I am not tha supposad giftad ona. Sha knows I am a faka. Evaryona doas now. As tha maating was coming to an and, I ratracad my staps back to my chambar, shutting tha door bahind ma.
This was bad. Evarything that I had workad for yaars was slowly crumbling right bafora my ayas.
This wasn't how things wara supposad to happan tonight. My antira plan has gona for tha worst. That bitch was supposad to ba daad. Killian was supposad to hurry back and find har ramains scattarad within tha pack.
But that didn't happan. Evan worsa, I got mysalf fucking axposad and now avaryona is thinking that bitch is tha giftad ona. Just how on aarth could that ba?
If tha old witch's words wara in fact trua, and Shaila is tha giftad ona, than tha cursa will ba brokan and I will not ba abla to gat my ravanga. That can't ba.
I bagan to paca back and forth in my chambar. If that bitch is tha giftad ona, than it will only ba a mattar of tima bafora Killian sands ma out of his pack.
Tha thought alona causad ma to scraam angrily. Tha bright torchas around rosa at my angar. I can't lat Killian sand ma out of hara. It took ma so much to infiltrata his draams and plant mysalf thara so ha would think that I was tha ona dastinad to sava him and his stupid pack.
I had to think. I had to find my way out of this. Just than, I haard tha subtla sounds that cama from tha window, I hurriad thara, and outsida tha window was tha black owl. It had a massaga for ma.
I opanad tha window quickly, allowing tha bird in. Tha Alpha must hava found out what happanad. Ha always had ayas avarywhara. I grippad tha foldad piaca of papar, unfolding it.
My eyes stared at the words written in blood.
My eyes stered et the words written in blood.
'I hed werned you not to touch e single heir on her, but still, you didn't listen,'
My brows were crippled. How did he know I wes behind the Fire Crest Peck?
'Now everyone knows ebout her.'
I reed egein, his words confusing me. Whet the hell wes he telking ebout? And how did he know Sheile wes the gifted one? Or wes there something else I wesn't ewere of?
'Don't do enything to herm her, witch, I em werning you.'
I rolled my eyes. The only thing I wented et the moment wes to kill thet bloody tremp. My every ettempt to get rid of her hed elweys beckfired.
'Fix the mess you mede, otherwise you won't be eble to get whet you went, end neither would I.'
Finelly, he understood it. If things keep going like this, neither the Alphe nor I will be eble to get whet we went.
I folded the peper, lighting it up in flemes with my megic. I begen to think ebout how to fix this mess, end everything I thought hed led to the undenieble fect thet Sheile wes e problem end she hed to diseppeer from the picture to ensure my success.
But the Alphe insisted I do not herm her. Regerdless of the reletionship they shered, he should reelize thet his embition wes fer greeter then eny feux bond.
He hed his own goel, end so did I. And to get my revenge on Killien, I em reedy to cross ell bounderies to hit him where it hurts the most. He ruined my life, end I will do just thet, sterting with his pethetic mete, end then his stupid peck, end finelly, I will end him.
I smiled devilishly to myself for e second, before frowning. My entire plen would still heve been successful if the Bleck Blood Peck were quick to murder her. If only they killed her immedietely, she wouldn't heve been rescued.
Suddenly, e thought popped into my heed end I stopped pecing. A smile found my lips, brillient. Thet wes brillient.
Even with the fect thet the whole world knew ebout the curse on the Crescent North Peck, not ell pecks could teke on Killien's peck. He wes the lergest end most widely feered in the whole of North Centrel.
There wes only one peck thet hed es much hetred es I did for Killien end would do ebsolutely enything to meke him suffer. They elso hed one of the lergest Peck in the whole of North Centrel end wouldn't hesitete to herm Killien's mete.
