Chapter 7 - The Unwanted Wolf

Mark led me to the main room while he went to make some phone calls. He seemed a little stressed, but I was afraid to ask him about it. I didn’t know him well enough, and I figured he would share the details if he ever felt comfortable enough with me. I sat on the couch and checked my phone while waiting. It was starting to get late. My stomach growled, and I realized I had hardly eaten all day. I’m sure I had something I could eat quickly when I got home.

“Hello,” a voice said in my ear, causing me to jump.

I turned and saw a blond boy standing behind the couch, leaning forward so his face was right next to mine. He looked on the thinner side and had a wide smile on his face.

“Hello?” I said. I felt nervous that his face was so close to mine.

“You’re her, aren’t you?” He cocked his head to the side.

“Well, I’m me. Not sure what you mean though.” I set my phone down next to me, so I could have my full attention on this stranger.<
