A locker slammed behind me, and I knew who it was before I even turned around. "Hello, Holly." "Hello, Mackenzie." Holly replied, and I turned around. "What do you want?" I sighed. Holly just grinned, and opened my locker. "Hum, backpack, markers, books, oh, what's this?" She held up a picture of me as a baby. I snatched it back from her and slammed my locker. "Mackenzie Eversworth, we all worry about you, might need to stick you in a home." She smiled and showed her teeth.
I spent the rest of the day in severe boredom. In English, we were assigned a book report on Frankenstein, and in math four sheets of formulas. "Hey!" My best friend, Olivia, exclaimed. We had just boarded the afternoon bus, and were on our way to the street where I lived. "Hey!" I said, and scooted over to make a seat for her. "So, I saw Holly with you today. What's she said this time?" "She took my photo." I murmured. Oliva gasped.
"She said I was insane and needed to go to a home." Olivia's face turned red. "I could say a lot of things about that girl, but I won’t.” "Oliva, it's okay. It's not like I care." I flipped my reddish-brownish hair over my shoulder, my violet eyes flicking back and forth nervously. "Stop it! You're freaking me out!" Olivia teased; her regular brown eyes flicked my way.
"It's like you're a woodland fairy, separated from your mother at birth, and dumped with a human foster mother!" Olivia smiled. That kind of hit me, I mean, I knew I was adopted, I knew my real last name was Eversworth, that's why I kept it. But I knew nothing of my real family. My mother and father's names, if I had any siblings, where they were, all I knew was that my parents were dead.
Suddenly, I snapped back into reality. "Hey, Max, what's that?" Olivia pointed to a dark shape in the woods. My eyes widened. "A wolf. A black Alpha it looks like." The Alpha howled, and stared at me. His eyes were a brilliant green with gold flecks. Then, he suddenly disappeared. "Hey, where'd he go?" Olivia wandered. I shrugged. "I dunno, caught a scent?" I replied.
