Chapter One

A Normal Afternoon... For Me

The kitchen was busy as always during the lunch rush. I quickly went from the dining area to the kitchen to pick up my next order. My whole body softly glistened under the light from my sweat. I picked up the tray that went to tabled number 6 on the balcony and I carefully walked up the stairs with my arms steadying the tray. The music was drowned out from all the chatter and people passed by me on their way out. A couple almost ran into me and I quickly grabbed my tray to keep it from falling.

"So sorry sweetheart. I didn't see you around the corner." The woman smiled at me apologetically as she and her husband continued down the stairs.

I got up to the balcony and walked over to table number 6 where 3 men sat waiting. I placed the tray down on the edge of the table as I passed out their orders.

"Okay, so we have two cheeseburgers, hold the onions with fries. And one meat lovers sand which with extra beef, medium rare." I looked at each of them as I gave them their meal.

The smell of the meat was making my mouth water but I held back my cravings. The man who ordered the meat lovers sand which smiled at me and asked, "So what would I have to do to get you to say yes on a date with me?"

I smirked as I said, "Well for starters, you may actually want to be single." I said looking at the band on his ring finger. His face paled as he put his hands under the tables. I smiled and said, "Enjoy your lunch."

I walked away and hurried back down stairs to clock out. I heard footsteps behind me and I glanced back to see Alex following me.

"Hey Luna, I saw how you handled the situation at table 6. Nice job noticing the wedding band." He smiled and held up his hand for a high five.

I did so and said, "He wouldn't be the first married man to ask me out, and most likely not the last."

"Yeah, but who could deny your perfect looks?" He asked. I laughed as we walked back into the kitchen. I don't consider myself that attractive but every man seems to find me irresistible. Yeah I have nice tan skin, black hair that goes to my waist, big brown eyes, and nice curves on my body. Every guy can't seem to take their eyes off of me but I still think that I could look better. I could have bigger boobs and I could lose a little fat around my waist.

Alex kind of looks like me, but has more attractive features. He has the same dark tan and black hair. His eyes are hazel instead of brown though. His body is all muscle, not an ounce of fat on him. And he's around 6' 5" so he's an intimidating size for most people. Once you get past his size he's actually a pretty nice guy. I've known him through out high school and we ended up getting the same job as waiters at a diner in town.

"So since you turned that guy down, how about you and I go out for dinner later tonight?" Alex smiled at me hopefully with his eyes bright.

"Alex, you know it's not a good idea that we go out. I don't want to risk our friendship." I said as I clocked out. Alex did the same as he followed me out the back door.

"Luna please, it's just one dinner. That's all I ask."

I sighed and ran my fingers through my hair. I looked up at him and he had his big puppy dog eyes staring down at me. I hated it when he used his puppy dog look, I always end up giving in.

"Fine, but only dinner. You so much as try to kiss me or anything and I'll beat the shit out of you."

He smirked at my words but held his hands up in submission. "Alright, I already know you can pack a punch so I'll be a good boy."

I smiled and said, "Thanks."

He nodded. "I'll pick you up around eight. That cool with you?"

I nodded and waved at him as he started towards his car and I continued to walk down the sidewalk towards the woods. Alex used to wonder why I always walked home but I can't tell him the truth because he's not in my pack and he's not my mate. So I just told him I preferred getting some exercise so I could lose weight. Of course he told me I didn't need to but if this was his body he'd be the same way.

I watched his car disappear down the road and I quickly entered the shadow of the trees. I grabbed my bag and quickly undressed myself, making sure no one was watching. I stuffed my clothes in my bag and got down on all fours. My first transformation hurt like hell but now I barely notice it. I closed my eyes for a moment and when I opened them everything was clearer. I picked up my bag with my  teeth and placed it on my back. As soon as I had it secured on me I took off into the woods, towards my home.

"Hey Sis! Glad you're finally off work. I've been bored to death out here." My brother's voice rang through my head loud and clear. I never understood how we communicated this way. We tried speaking to normal wolves but they never heard us.

"Hey Johnny, don't get too excited cause I'm only here for a few hours then I have to go get ready for dinner with my co-worker." I replied.

"I thought Dad told you you weren't aloud to date humans?" he asked.

"It's not a date, it's just dinner. I even told him that myself." I retorted.

"Oh, so is he coming out here or are you meeting him somewhere?"

"He's coming out here so please be on your best behavior." I begged as I leaped over a fallen branch and into the front yard. My brother stood up and walked over to me in his wolf form.

"Fine, but I wouldn't let Dad know if I were you." Johnny warned.

"I know, he won't if you keep your mouth shut." I playfully nipped at his muzzle and he huffed out a laugh. My little brother Johnny looks like a younger version of our dad. His hair is black and a little shaggy. His eyes are a dark brown like mine and we all have the same dark tan.

As Johnny and I wrestled around the yard I heard my father whistle and we both quickly looked up. He was still in his human form and was standing by the front door of our house. He looked down at me with disaproval, cause he hated it when I acted like a pup.

"Luna, go get into your clothes and stop this nonsense. You're 21 years old and this is not how future Alpha's are supposed to act." He stepped away from the door as I walked up with my ears and tail lowered. Yeah my dad wanted me to be more like an Alpha but I'm still young and I still like to mess around with my little brother every once in a while. Dad just doesn't seem to see that.

My paws stepped through the door and I quickly changed back into my human form. I didn't care if I was naked in front of my family, they've all seen me like this already. I heard my brother whine behind me and I looked at him apolegetically.

"Maybe next time little brother." I said sadly. He lowered his head and trotted off. He always preferred his wolf form cause he felt more free.

My father sighed as Johnny walked off and said, "The wolf was back again earlier today. Johnny and I chased him as far as our borders. We think it may just be a normal wolf but no normal wolf would keep coming back."

"Are you saying there are more out there like us?" I asked in shock.

"There is always the possibility, Luna. We're not even sure if the story of our ancestor's is true or not."

"So what do we do if this stranger is in fact one of us?" I asked curiously.

"We can always offer him a place in the pack but if he refuses then he must be driven off." The sterness in my father's voice gave me chills. I walked up the stairs to my room and got some clothes.

I always believed that my family were the only ones with the special power to transform into wolves. My mother used to tell my brother and I the ancient stories or our kind when we were little. I never would've thought there'd be others like us. I guess that shows how blind I really am.
