Chapter 3

  • He used his Alpha tone on me. I acted like flinching but it never affected me. My wolf snorted at my acting. My grandpa was an Alpha of a small pack at his younger age. Then he merged it with another small pack and gave up the title to the young alpha. So I think his bloodline in me, is not making me get affected by Alphas orders, though my mother is his younger daughter. Alpha Vinodhan frowned and looked at my mom who is having a frown as well.
  • She smells like a wolf but why is she not shifting into a wolf, Anu?
  • He asked my mom.
  • Maybe her wolf needs time, Alpha. Her grandparents' death affected her wolf more.
  • My heart skipped a beat when my mom mentioned my grandparents. Alpha noticed it and looked at me with pity. Alpha perks - Sharper senses! I nodded my head and turned around to walk home.
  • I locked the door and used my wolf speed to go upstairs in a flash. I had a nice warm shower and got ready in a pale green t-shirt and black jean. I look decent but not attractive; just the way I want to be. I rechecked whether I am wearing my moonstone pendant and made my way out.
  • I work more like a partner in New-tech park owned by my moms friend. The shop sells products and services related to the computer. There are only a few employees there. I knew to assemble and dismantle any type of computer and my interest turned to software. I have created and maintain a few websites of our kind. I have been creating a pack-wise database app for top-level ranks to access the details of every wolf of the pack. Secretly, I am creating this app to ensure any clues about the monster so that I could kill him as I planned.
  • Usually, I would just write the program and ensure its safety and efficiency. Kalai is the one who goes to different packs to explain the pros and cons of my apps and make a contract for the same. From security based app to games app, I have created twenty-five apps so far and all apps were successful in the market.
  • The most hilarious app is the one I created out of boredom for children though I made it useful for parents. It was a complete guide for a kid in the werewolf world. It would be so comical yet nice as I animated the werewolf origin and also it would be like an indirectly teaching app through stories and poems.
  • Kalai will give sixty per cent from the earning to me which made me maintain a decent bank balance. My mom earns more than enough but I want to make my own money. And I use a half portion of my earnings to pay for the entrance of fighting tournaments. Its a fight held by rogues in a free land where we fight to the death or till submission. And that's where I use my knowledge of martial arts and also my wolfs ability to beat the hell out those rogue wolves. I never shifted to wolf form as I wanted to keep my wolf as my secret. Anyone can use masks there. So no fear of revelation of identity and I am a star there in the name of Black mask.
  • The fights would be held on Saturday nights. Few teen pack wolves will come there to have fun and all illegal things like betting, drug dealing and smuggling would happen there. And no one knew my little sneaking away from our pack land. Its not that our border patrol is bad; I am so good at sneaking. And I would run my way back in my wolf form to let my wolf part have fun. I would give her complete control and enjoy her hunting and chasings from the back of our mind.
  • I walked into the office and found my boss bargaining with one of our regular customer. I greeted her and walked inside And plopped on my seat to continue my coding for the new app I am developing. Kalaiarasi, my the shop owner, walked towards me. She is thirty-five years old lady who is happily mated and blessed with a daughter. Unlike me, she is a very friendly type who gets along with everyone in a matter of seconds.
  • Hey honey, How about some coffee? I have prepared a few promotional posters and messages for this application. Let's review it over the coffee.
  • She patted my head lovingly. My wolf purred at the affectionate gesture. I nodded my head and walked with her. She poured the coffee from the flask into two cups and gave me a cup.
  • Thank you, Mam
  • She sighed and shook her head as she wants me to call her by her name but I never obliged.
  • Dont get close to anyone. Dont let anyone get close to you.
  • I chanted in my mind ignoring the eye roll from my wolf.
  • I knew my behaviour is affecting her too. But its the best way to survive in this world without any heartbreak. We reviewed the posters and I made a few changes. She hugged me and said bye. I patted her shoulder awkwardly. It's our regular routine. I reached my home and ate the leftovers and went to my room to finish homework.
  • After an hour I decided to go to bed. I removed my brown cosmetic lens and placed it safely in its box. The reflection of my bright purple eyes brought me many unwanted memories. My mom has a fair skin unlike me. But it only made my life easy. No one will give a second look at seeing my dark complexion. I braided my hair and went to bed but sleep is far away from me. Around one in mid-night, I heard the sound of car pull over followed by the front door opening and closing. Then I heard the sound of some program telecasting on the television.
  • Mom is home!
  • With that thought, I drifted off to sleep.
