I paused at the kitchen door when I heard someone laughing. Curious, I looked in to see Liyah; her hands were busy as she expertly sliced the vegetables that lay on the kitchen counter. But what caught my attention was the fact that she was talking to herself.
I perused the kitchen to see if there was someone in there with her. When I didn't, I stared at her smiling and talking in confusion, and then it clicked. She must have met her inner wolf. Smiling, I walked in.
"Hey!" She said, grinning when she saw me. The way her eyes lit whenever we talked made me feel so special, it was almost strange, but left a warm feeling in the pit of my stomach.
I wrapped my arms around her waist and kissed the top of her head as I whispered in her ear. "I see you've met your wolf." She nodded excitedly, and then as if she suddenly remembered something, smacked my arm and turned to face me, her eyes narrowed.
"Ow!" I complained, staring at her in surprise. "What?"
