M and C-escape "Prefect." Derek yelled madly as I returned to normal. "All the tests are now complete. Do you know what I've made you, boy? This arcane power I have given you puts you beyond the success of your brother. You are now what our werewolves should have been. You now have the forms of a human, werewolf, and wolf."
My heart nearly stopped as the knife of words sunk in. The surroundings came into focus. With an unknown anger I sprang up and yelled, "Derek, you snake. You're a lunatic. I told you life is not to be toyed with." But then, I planned it this way. Him to get me, steal the drive and escape. I just didn't want him to change me at all.
Derek motioned to James; then the weretiger put me into a choke hold. "A snake?" he said casually, "Good idea, but no. A werelion suites me better." I had no idea what he was talking about. He reinserted the hig
M and C-Joshua I awoke the next day to see Michael staring out the window again. He was not crying, just staring. His ears where twitching every now and then. Stepping over Alex I went up to Michael. I reached to touch him, but withdrew. "How are you?" I asked.
"Joshua," Michael said, "I've lost everything; my body, my world, my life."
"You haven't lost me. You're my older brother," I said again. He was on the verge of tears. When he spoke he was trembling.
"Josh, they won't let me go home like this, will they?" Michael asked.
I was choking back my anger. I couldn't let that happen, no matter the cost. He needed a cure, the cure the phantom had. I had to get it, maybe it was stored in the thumb drive. Yes, the phantom must be Derek Johnson, but I can't prove it. OC
M and C-Michel I put the key in the lock and opened the door to my new apartment. The apartment was plain white with three rooms and some furniture. We laid the unknown werewolf on the bed in the bedroom. We made sure he was comfortable. I stayed near him a while longer. Slowly he got up and walked to the window in a very shaky manner, holding onto every chair and desk along the way. Eric and my dad were doing something with the computer that was in the apartment.
The werewolf kid wouldn't look at me even though I was trying to start up a conversation. I thought he was depressed by the way he acted. He was leaning on the window crying softly, even his crying was almost silent. As if an unseen force had appeared to torment me, his reflection seemed to imitate my brother. It was sad to see his young yellow eyes so watery and the fur around his eyes so damp.
M and C-the hunt I left Alex in the clinic were someone was attending to him. I then ran directly to Eric's office. Hearing raised voices I looked in to see my dad, Eric and Kris, the army official.
"Grrrr," Eric growled as deep as any angry dog I've heard. He looked angry with Kris. Kris was cornered in Eric's office. "What do you mean by 'can't' or is it 'won't'?"
"Eric," he said desperately, violent fear lit in his eyes. "It is still night time on this island, if what the dog said is true, then it might be better to send a full search team out in the morning than to use our night-volunteers."
"We must find them, I'll go," my dad said as he turned to the door.
The door to Eric's office opened and David, my dad, and Eric's brother, stood happy that I came back, "I'v
M and C-The Phantom Once we were in the hall I became all the more curious. "Alex, did you know this whole time that we were cousins?" I asked.
"Yes," Alex said, "Dad told me not to tell you so I didn't." Michael was nervously eyeing Alex's claws.
"Alex," I nearly giggled, "I don't think Michael is comfortable with those yet." Alex retracted them.
"I'm a little confused," Michael said honestly and nervously.
"Terrified, weirded out, boggled, and insecure. Sum it up for you?" I said, recalling the memory of my first day here. "Soccer will clear it up, it did for me."
On the way out of the building I thought I saw a figure dashing to a hiding place in a room just before we exited the building. I ran over to look in but saw n
M and C-Reveling truths The first thing I felt was the twanging pain in my right arm. I was laying on a soft bed and was just waking up from the incident.
"I can't yet," a female voice yelled. What? I thought as I tried to lift my heavy eyelids.
"Now Mary, they are already here," a slurred one calmly stated.
"And more on the way. Fine you win again. But your leg, his arm..." Mary said, "Humph, and I am the one who discovered werewolves can't have chocolate." I opened my eyes to see Mary, a human nurse, stomp off. We apparently were in a white clinic room.
"You can't have chocolate?" I asked Eric, surprisingly.
"Joshua, you're awake," he blurted. Eric lay on a bed, his tail drooping off the side like a hurt dog. His poor leg wa
M and C-Cave Island Groaning I flopped onto the side of the boat and saw an amazing island; large, tropical and the mountain on it was enormous. "See it Josh?" Eric said. "That is Cave Island. The only place in the world raw gantean is found."
"Cave Island? Why is it called that?" I asked, wondering if it was gouged with holes, or had a very large cave.
"It is called Cave island because of the small cave that was finely chiseled away to a spacious cavern," said Eric. "Supposedly it was carved by ancients."
We landed in a small dock with lots of bushes around a dirt road. Eric and I got off the boat quickly. I looked back and saw Derek driving a boat to the island. I also saw a glimpse of the orange and black tail on Derek's boat.
"Come on Joshua," Eric said as he dragge
M and C-Just a day at work I had Alex cornered. He obviously didn't notice I could put him in checkmate whenever I wanted to. So I was letting him play for a chance to outsmart me. Alex never got the chance, Eric dashed in and dropped to all fours with a loud thunk. He then shook himself dry.
"My dear, do you have to set such a bad example for Alexander and Aaron?" Eric's wife literally barked. "And why are you late?"
"I'm sorry, Salena, my dear, but I had to get something for Joshua."
"Wait a moment," I said as I picked up a piece and moved it. "Checkmate." Alexander was baffled at the move. I whipped around to face Eric and said, "What do you need me for?" Eric handed me some papers. I looked over the papers. They placed me in Eric's responsibility and gave me a small apartment (#25). I signed the paper and took the apart
M and C-the game It was a strange feeling shaking Alexander's hand. The back was furry while his palm had soft pads that felt oddly like a dog's. His claws seemed like someone brushing quill-tips on my arm. He greeted me in a very dog like manor. Giddy and extremely happy. "Dad," Alex asked, "can we play soccer? Joshua doesn't have to start working until tomorrow." I thought he was joking. I loved that sport nearly as much as dogsledding.
"It's fine by me. It might evan help Joshua become more used to us," Eric said.
"Yes, I'll take a game, Alexander," I said.
"Call me Alex."
"Call me Josh."
On the way to the field I asked a question after Alex bragged that he was the best soccer player on this island (and the world if
