Chapter 4 Curses

  • He was in front of you again. The belt in your hands. His stern gaze just pointed to the table.
  • Sera already knew what to do, she took off her dress, lay down against the cold surface and bit her lips when her punishment began.
  • The pain took her mind elsewhere, to vibrant yellow eyes and hairs of a blood-covered wolf.
  • Sera woke up panting, she shook her hands in the train seat and did her best to breathe.
  • "Yeah? Okay? What happened? Can you breathe?"
  • She looked at Kirya’s worried expression, it was different. No one had ever directed such a look at her.
  • However, her focus was short-lived. Her breathing and heart were getting faster and faster and she thought she was going to faint.
  • "Yuji, get her a bottle of water." - A female voice said.
  • Deep blue eyes looked into Sera’s eyes.
  • "Take a deep breath and release slowly." - The black-haired woman said.
  • And Sera obeyed him.
  • "Yes, young lady. Go on." - Her voice was firm and pacifying.
  • And Sera made it until her heart and breath calmed.
  • The water came and helped her return to her normal state.
  • "How does it feel?" - The woman asked.
  • "Well, thank you so much..."
  • "Yelena Petrova, pleasure. I am from the family of doctors. And what is the name of my new patient and her friend?" - She asked, looking at Kirya.
  • "Sera Abrams and this is Kyria Waish, nice to meet you Yelena." she wrote and smiled as she did it under her mother’s name.
  • Yelena smiled and kissed lightly on both their cheeks.
  • "I hope to meet my patient more often" - she said, taking a little longer with Sera.
  • And so he went with Yuji after her, looking angry.
  • "How do you feel, Sera?" - Kirya asked.
  • Sera smiled and, with a nod, confirmed that she was fine.
  • Time spent on the train, the fresh air landscape helped Sera to think clearly.
  • She was really in trouble, first of all, she didn’t have a wolf in her. I’m sure they’d ask about it.
  • From what she realized, people didn’t care about her lack of speech. Which left her a little more relieved. But there was still one last problem.
  • Karim Ramesses was still bothering her. Why had he met so early? The firstborn of the clan who decimated his and left her an orphan mother. If he found out who Sera was, he certainly wouldn’t bring something good.
  • She swallowed it hard thinking about it, she’d have to watch out for him.
  • "Hey, Sera!. We’re here." - Her new friend said.
  • The place was beautiful, Sera took a deep breath of fresh forest air. Tall trees closed the passage, except where the train passed.
  • Sera lightly touched the leaves of the trees that entered through the window until the vehicle stopped.
  • "Come on. I’ll introduce you to the school." - Kyria dragged her out, smiling.
  • "I hope the director doesn’t kick me out by noticing that I’m different than she thinks."
  • Getting off the train, she came across a tall building full of Torres.
  • "Each tower is a different year." - Kyria explained.
  • Sera observed the towers and they were all erased. They continued to a large, massive wooden door that was open.
  • The interior of the place was nothing different from the other schools that Sera had seen in books. There were stairs leading to different towers and cabinets in the corridors.
  • Kyria presented the locations to Sera in a lively way. From the cafeteria to the recreation rooms, it turned out to be a boarding school.
  • However, something else caught Sera’s attention:. Whispers.
  • "Did you hear that? This year, the four great clans are coming together. They say there’s a curse involved with their union."
  • "What a load of crap."
  • "These are just stories."
  • "Nancy Rivera disappeared, could it be the curse? "
  • "Of course not. Everyone knows that Nancy hides in Jacob Lite’s face. She hasn’t arrived yet. They must be making out and forgot the time."
  • "Stay calm, nothing’s going to happen. After all. They need the four clans and he’s all wiped out."
  • Upon hearing this phrase, Sera’s heart stopped for a moment. She was the last moment of the 4 ish clan, was she bringing something bad to the place?
  • Upon noticing that Sera had stopped in place, Kyria said:
  • "Don’t pay attention to the bullshit the occult club is spreading around. It’s just silly stories to scare people. Everyone is excited to see the 3 clans together in the same place. Don’t worry."
  • But it didn’t help her. Stories were never just stories.
  • Her mind dispersed from the situation when Kyria took her towards the library.
  • "Thomas should already be there. I’m sure you’ll get along. "
  • Outside, Nayssa was leaving the scene and a slender boy was following her. He was very much like her, the difference was the short hair and the glasses.
  • "Ah, hello, Sera and Kyria". - the woman said with a smile, before leaving them. " It’s great to see them again."
  • Kyria smiled, a little embarrassed, but soon recovered and said:
  • "Sera, this is my best friend and library manager, Thomas Abiyoe. Thomas, this is Sera Abrams, new student."
  • Thomas waved and made some gestures that Sera did not understand.
  • "He welcomed you. Thomas is deaf and uses sign language to communicate."
  • Sera smiled, not knowing why it was comforting to meet someone different just like her.
  • "Thank you, Thomas. Nice to meet you. I hope we’re friends."
  • Thomas gave him a gentle smile and asked them to come into the library. The place was large, full of books. It was supposed to be a library. Sera kept in his memory the way to the place to explore later.
  • "Here." - Thomas signaled.
  • They were papers to deliver to the board. Sera felt great relief to see that he asked nothing about his wolf. Only name, address and schooling. Of course, this last part was very complicated, but she hoped that the director would help her.
  • The girls said goodbye to Thomas and Kyria kept showing everything to Sera with her typical animation. Until they bumped into someone.
  • A blond boy looked at them angrily.
  • "Waish, don’t look where you’re going? Still a clumsy whale as always." - He laughed.
  • Obviously Kyria did not like the comment at all, but she did not say anything, embarrassed, about to cry.
  • Sera was angry about it. And he wrote quickly in his notebook.
  • "One should not talk to people like that. Apologize." - She wrote quickly, helping Kyria to get up.
  • The boy laughed. Especially when his friends joined him.
  • "The girl without tongue wants to fight with us." - He laughed. " Why don’t you talk, ein? Mute." - Said, throwing Sera’s notebook on the floor.
  • Sera approached him, imposing himself more and more. However, the boy did not seem intimidated.
  • Until she heard a voice, known, he wished to avoid.
  • "Can’t you stop bumping into anyone, freak?"
  • Karim stood in front of her and everyone walked away, like puppies obeying the owner.
  • Sera came even closer to him with an expression of anger, raised his head, showing imposition. He would not let anyone else humiliate him.
  • "What is it? Are you afraid to speak?"
  • Sera didn’t move, just stared at him without lowering his head.
  • His yellow eyes stared at her in anger and his fangs were exposed. Sera knew to stay away from Karim and not get his attention. Now there was no way. She had already become his target.
