Rose is a beautiful nerd with a vulgar brain and absence of filter on her lovely mouth. Even With all the shortcomings of being loud and obnoxious, no one can deny that the girl was a genius who was graduating from the prestigious St. George University of California. She was blissfully happy living her normal life in ignorance of her family’s darkest secret until the very fateful summer just before her internship when she reluctantly had to go back to her hometown for some ‘unknown’ family crisis. Adding to the top of the list of ‘what Rose don’t want to do’ was the trip to the waterfall in the middle of the forest that her brother and cousin so generously planned. After another unfortunate incident, Rose found herself lost in the middle of the forest about to be eaten by a gorgeous golden-brown wolf but to her utter shock the majestic animal spared her life. Now with the new found hope of escaping the deadly forest, she started her journey to find her way back only to stumbled upon a horrific scene of a fight between her uncles and the same wolf which resulted in the wolf being extremely injured and her uncles running for their lives. Feeling pity for the poor animal, she went to see his condition only for the wolf to change in to a equally gorgeous man right before her eyes. Not even in her wildest dream she thought she will witness something bizarre like this. So, she did the only logical thing she could think of; She screamed like hell! She tried to run away, of-course but her conscious was killing her for leaving a ‘handsome’ dying ‘man’ behind. Being a medical student, she decided to treat him in private right under her family’s nose. He promised to pay back for her kindness. What a joke of a promise it was! As the GORGEOUS man she so generously saved and protected, revealed that he is the Werewolf King and also her mate? And she HAS TO MARRY HIM if she wants to protect her family and people! and How will she react knowing about her own true self? Will she be able to accept the truth or will she die in denial?
I found myself waking up all alone in the dark forest.
I could feel the severe pain in my head, the memory of how my cruel brother and my bloody cousins left me behind after I hit my head accidently on the tree trunk.
“Those rat*ss b*stards actually left me!!! Even my own brother? My own blood! Bloody Mark Blue!!! That ridiculous piece of sh*t!!! How could he?! How dares he?! I am going to kill you Mark Blue! Wait till I get my hands on you!!” I said as I imagined my hands around his neck.
“I shouldn’t have come to see this stupid waterfall with them! Oh No No! I shouldn’t have trusted any of them!! Those evil b*stards!!! I will kill each and every one from the damn Blue Family” I screamed from the top of my lungs while my hands were closed in tight fists to gather the energy to scream louder.
“umm umm! Oooh, looks like I got a free warm up for my throat. It sounded like a high note! My voice is so melodic. I should try singing next time” I said keeping my hand on my flawless swan like neck and with a long sigh I continued,
“Anyways, there is nothing interesting in medical field! Not a single hot dude in a batch of thirty! Not even a sexy senior! I hope to at-least see some beauty during my internship”
Clearly, I was talking to myself in the middle of the forest, only if I am not interested in talking to the giant dark trees. Honestly, the tree must not be that dark, it’s just that there is no light in this darn shady forest!! I don’t know why am I stating the common facts?
I looked up in the sky and saw a beautiful crescent moon shining above me peaking from behind the dense tree.
“And you are not helping with the illumination, you beautiful impractical thing!!!” I said pointing an accusing finger towards the moon.
“Even a small LED bulb of 9W is more powerful than you! What a waste!” I scoffed looking at the moon.
My foolish a*s remembered that when I fell down and got this nice looking bump on my head, all thanks to that monstrous tree behind me, I had a cell phone in my hand with a flash light on.
Where the hell is my damn cell phone?
My mother will kill me!!!! It was a damn brand-new phone!!!
I started searching for my phone. It wasn’t a big surprise that my flashlight went off when my cell phone fell from my hand. So, I am only left with my nerdy eyes with improper vision to search for my expensive cell phone in this bloody dark forest. Cool!!
I bent down and started searching for my cell. I wanted to find it as soon as I can and leave immediately as I noticed my headache was increasing by ten folds with each passing second. Oh dramatic me!
But there is another good news, I don’t actually come here really often so I don’t know the exact way out!
“Lucky is my middle name!!” I said with a sarcastic smile but I knew that I would find my way out anyways. Even though, people might not believe it but I am really capable.
This bending position was giving another pain in my back. I am having 60s joint pain in my 20s. Thank you very much!
When I moved forward, I saw something shining from the corner of my eyes, like a light reflecting from a mirror or a glass screen. I slowly moved towards my left like a sly fox and guess what did I find? It’s my bloody cell phone!!! Yoohooo!!! YEEeeeeeeeeee!!!!! WOaahhhhhh!!!!!
“Guess I am not that unlucky at all!!! I thought it will take forever to search for a tiny black color phone in the dark forest but that little friend of mine helped me. I love you my old friend!” I said shamelessly throwing series of flying kisses towards the mesmerizing crescent moon which I was cursing just few moments ago, but I was still in the bending position.
“Thank God I found it. My mother would have actually killed me this time!”
Soon, I realized I was thanking for the blessing I never received.
I tried to switch on my cell phone but I noticed that glass was completely broken just like my new found hope.
“NOOOO!!! This can’t happen!!” I said trying to switch on my phone only to be hopeless again.
“I am so dead!! My mother will definitely kill me!! Rose, you are so dead!! So, this is the day I will actually die!!! This is how my story ends!!!” I said hitting the ugly mushroom like bump with my broken cell phone while trying to get up from my bending position.
“F*ck this back pain!” I said keeping my hand on my back while getting up.
My mind was completely drifted from my back pain when my attention was shifted to the loud growl.
“What the hell!! What in the bloody hell was that?” I asked myself clearly knowing that was a growl of a wild animal.
What was it? A wild dog? A bear? A Wolf???
I don’t know. I am not a veterinarian! I am a medical student! I am responsible for humans! What am I thinking?? Why am I thinking? Should I be running? But where to????
‘Why there is an animal near me? It’s a forest, Rose, you dumba*s!! What did you expect??? Unicorns???’ I chided myself in my brain.
“Is Unicorn an animal?” I asked myself in confusion. I hit my ugly bump again to knock some sense in my bloody useless brain. Why am I thinking nonsense in a situation like this?
Usually, when normal people are caught in a situation like this, their flight or fight mode gets activated. But a weirdo like me always start asking myself utterly gibberish questions which has nothing to do with reality!
I got up immediately and was trying to figure out where should I run or I might end up running directly in the direction of wild animal.
Suddenly, a giant wolf, giant is an understatement, a GIGANTIC, a HUGE, a HUMANGOUS wolf appeared in front of me from nowhere and it was running in my direction.
“Lucky??? My a*s!!”
The wolf was golden brown in color. It was literally glowing in the moonlight, its golden brown hair were moving elegantly when the cold breeze was touching it. It looked like it was made of real gold! I had never seen such an ethereal wolf in my life.
Correction, I have never seen any wolf in my life!! It was really different from what they show in pictures on the internet. This wolf in particular looked DIVINE.
Why am I thinking about a wolf’s beauty? Have I lost it? I am going to be served on his dinner table in a few seconds. I watch the whole scene in slow motion as it moved towards me.
“Maybe not by mother’s hand but I am definitely dying today!” words rolled out of the mouth without me noticing.
I wanted to run. I wanted to scream and call for help. But I froze at my place!
Yeah, I bloody froze!!!!
I know calling someone for help in the middle of the forest is not such a brilliant idea, I mean I can drift attention of more wild animals towards me but I was never in such situation before.
The wolf was coming near me with every microsecond passing and I froze in my place. My legs were not moving like it was glued to the ground. My eyes were teary. My throat was sore, my mouth was not ready to open. None of my voluntary organs were ready to listen to my brain’s command. I was just standing there like an ice block.
The wolf looked at me with its intense gazes. He will be there in 5 second at most!! Only 5 seconds are left for me to breath!
He is reaching near me. He is almost there.
He is in front of me. Mom, dad, even Mark, I love you.
And he ran past me.
