Ouch! I groan as I wake with pains all over my body like I was hit by a train, not that it happened, so why can't I move my hands or legs without feeling pain.
Then the memory can back to me, I and Lucien were on my bed, talking about something, no someone, yes we were talking about his sister, Nicolette and how we don't get along, then…
I felt my bones cracking like it was breaking into pieces after that the rest is a blur, I think I saw Mrs. Jackson, she gave me something weird to drink, and then, I remember falling asleep in Lucien's arms.
This is the second time something strange has happened to me since I got to this town, something weird is going on, and I have to get to the bottom of it, really fast.
I just hope Lucien doesn't look at me weirdly, he doesn't even know about my sliver eyes because of the contact I was wearing.
But it seems Mrs.. Jackson knows something, how wouldn't she? She was my grandma's close friend, she was always there if my memory serves me right, I am going to get to the bottom of this, by any means I won't be left in the dark mostly about matters that conscience me.
I stood up from my bed despite the pain and forced myself down the stairs to the kitchen, where Mrs. Jackson was mixing some concoction.
"Ah you are up, how are you feeling?" Mrs. Jackson asks as she leaves what she is doing to help me sit."
"What were you doing?"
"Doing? Oh, I was mixing some herbs for you to take to ease your pain, you will also rub in all over your body and you will feel so much better." Mrs. Jackson said warmly.
"What is happening to me?" I asked Mrs. Jackson staring straight at her eyes as she was about to talk, I cut her off.
"I want the truth please Mrs. Jackson, please Martha, I want the truth I am begging you."
Mrs. Jackson looks at me warily then signed.
"Let me tell you our story and I want you to be open-minded."
"Hmmn I am listening."
"Long time ago, there were two sisters, twins, very powerful witches, Athanasia and Selene, both were direct descendants of a god, they were separated at birth by their aunt, Liviah who was envious of their mother.
Liviah took Athanasia, the goodness of immortality hoping that if she took care of Athanasia as her own she would one day make her immortal, leaving Selene goddess of the moon with their heartbroken mother Lucinda, Athanasia was influenced by Liviah, who was gifted immortality, who into turn made more people but she had to survive off the blood of an innocent in other to prolong her beauty, and immortality.
They were called blood drinkers or vampires. Selene bestowed her gift of the moon to her children, making them Lycanthropes, they were also called wolf walkers or werewolves.
The werewolves and vampires have always been enemies since that time till now."
"So what has that got to do with me," I ask confused.
"You are a descendant of Selene, Silver." Mrs. Jackson revealed the most shocking thing ever. I laughed.
"Good one, Mrs. Jackson, I didn't know you could make a good joke, you are really good," I said still laughing hard.
Mrs. Jackson signs and then looks at me seriously.
"Child, that is the truth you are a descendant of Selene, from the silver pack, you are a werewolf and what you have been going through is called transition, where your body reshapes itself and morphemes into a werewolf."
I could barely comprehend what she was saying after she said the 'transition' I remembered her saying the same thing yesterday when Lucien asked what was wrong with me and at the back of my mind I think I know she is right, with my weird looks and ability, I have always been stronger than a normal human, goodness I really can't be a werewolf. Werewolves are just myth right, it can't be true right.
"Does my grandmother know?" I whisper.
"Just answer the fucking question! You were close to my grandmother, so only you would know, does she know what I am."
"What? she knows what I am, how? she said I was adopted, why does it feel like she spent her life lying to me. Is she also a werewolf?"
"No, she is not."
"Since when has she know about them?"
"Before she found you."
"How does she know about them?"
"Because I told her."
"How do you know about them, are you one?"
"I am not a werewolf but neither am l human."
"What do you mean? Wait what are you if you aren't human. Are you a blood drinker, vampires?" I asked scared.
"No, child I am a witch."
"A witch? Doesn't it get any better? Soon you will tell me there are fairies, Vikings, goblins, elves, sphinx, and what else."
"So you are witch as in a goddess."
"But you said Selene and Athanasia were goddesses and also witches."
"Yes, their father was god and their mother a witch, I am just a witch."
I really can't believe what I am hearing at all, Lycanthropes, Immortals, gods, goddesses, witches I can't take it, I really can't take it. I stood up to go back to my room.
"I need time to process all these and how it affects everything in my life, like how my friends will react to know I am some creature of the moon, how am I going to face Lucien or continue our relationship when I know am not human.
"About that Silver, You will have to end your relationship with Lucien, because it would do more harm than good, that's the reason I told you to stay away from him. If I had noticed you were into him, I would have stopped it before it began."
"What do you mean by I have to end my relationship with Lucien," I said in a panic.
"Because it would never work out because of what you are?"
"I didn't ask for this and it is already affecting my life, I don't want this, why me?"
I sobbed in despair because I felt like my heartbreaking.
"Do you know my parents?"
"Your parents?" she said, I caught her off guard.
"Yes, my biological parents"
"No, I don't, you were adopted remember?" She said disturbed by my query.
"Okay, I remember," I said bitterly as I walk out.
