We walked into the house, making our way into the living room.
”So whats up kiddo? ” My dad asked as he sat down on the sofa, resting his feet on the coffee table. Mom walked up to him and smacked his leg, making him drop his feet on the floor. She sent him a glare and she sat down next to him. I took a deep breath.
Here goes nothing.
As I started explaining what happened that morning, their faces grew worried, then panicked. They looked at each other before my mom spoke up.
”Sweetie. I know this will be difficult to hear… ” she started looking anywhere but at me.
”Well? ” I asked impatiently.
”You see…we aren your parents… ” she said finally looking at into my eyes with a pained expression. I stood there, shocked.
”WHAT?! ” I faintly heard August yell. I could hear them talking but it was as if I was hearing everything from underwater. I stared at my parents with tears in my eyes.
”Why…? ” I whispered. They stopped talking and looked at me.
”Why didn you tell me? ” I asked a little louder. Once again, Mom was the first to speak.
”Well. We were asked not to until the right time. Your real mom was my best friend. One day she showed up at my house asking me to take you. She didn give me any details..just said that when the time was right, Id know when to tell you. I always just guessed she was in trouble… ” she said sadly. ”It was just after she brought you to me that David and I married. ” She said. Smiling softly and him.
”Did she not want me..? ” I asked softly. I felt August place a hand on my shoulder.
”Oh honey. I doubt thats what happened. She must of had a reason. ” August pulled me into a hug as I silently cried.
”We wanted to tell you soon. But you gotta believe us when we say that you ARE our baby girl. No matter what. ” My dad said as he stood up and hugged me. I felt my mom hug me also. So I was being embraced by all three of them tightly.
”Anything else? ” I ask as I pull away. I watched as my parents looked at each other uneasily. I placed my hands on my hips, waiting for them to answer. My mom sighed and looked at me.
e werewolves. ” She said bluntly. I looked at her and bursted out laughing.
”Yeah sure. And I can fly. ” I continued laughing until my sides hurt.
e telling the truth.. ” I heard August say from behind me. I stopped laughing immediately and turn around to see her face full of guilt.
”I know because I am too. We are in the same pack. ” She scratched the back of her neck nervously, waiting for my reaction. I looked between all of them and said:
”Prove it. ”
They nodded and started walking toward the back door.
”Follow us then. ” My dad said.
We were standing in a small clearing in the woods behind our house. I watched as all three of them started taking off their clothes, though they left on their underwear. I cover my eyes.
”WHAT THE HELL GUYS?! ” I screech.
”LANGUAGE! ” my mom yells.
”We have to strip or else we will tear our clothes. I guess we aren bothered by it since its a normal thing for werewolves. ” My dad said. ”But you need to see this so uncover your eyes please. ” I peeked through my fingers, then put my hands down to my sides. I watch in horror as I heard their bones break, making their bodies contort into impossible positions. Fur sprouted on their bodies as I watched their face stretch out and their legs get longer. Before I could process anything, three large wolves were standing in their places. Augusts wolf was a beautiful amber color with black on the tips of her ears and tail. Mom was light brown with white on her paws. And dad was black with white on the tops of his ears and tail.
I stood there for a moment, shocked. I watched as Augusts wolf lowered herself to the ground, slowly crawling to me. She stopped right in front of me and nudged my hand with her nose and whimpered. I smiled and ran my fingers through her soft fur.
”You are beautiful August. ” She yipped, jumped up, and licked my face.
”EWWWWW! You bitch thats so gross! ” I screamed and wiped my face. I heard laughing and looked up to see my parents back in their human forms.
They walked up to me and smiled.
”You took that better than I thought you would. ” My dad said as he laughed.
”So am I a werewolf? ” I asked them.
”If you are I can smell it. ” I heard August say from behind me. I look over my shoulder and she is also back in her human form, fully dressed.
”Oh… ” I said. Kinda sad that I wasn . My mom cleared her throat. Catching my attention.
e not human either. ” She said with a smile, somehow knowing what I was thinking.
