I showed up to the shop bright and early. I didn’t really know what to wear and what not to wear, so I just threw on an old black tank top and a pair of dirty jeans. I could care less what happened to them so welcome grease to your new home.

“Morning Gus.” I welcomed him as I went inside.

“Here sweetie you might want this.” Gus said handing me a set of blue overalls.

I put them on over my jeans and tied the long sleeves around my waist, “How do I look? Am I runway ready?” I asked playfully striking a pose.

“Adorable.” Gus played back before he went to his office.


The afternoon was uneventful being all our work was done by the time it was lunch. Embry and my new coworkers Josh and Mike were playing cards, Gus was in his office ordering parts and Jake and I were sitting on one of the cars talking.

“So where did you move from?” Jake asked cleaning his hands off.

“Just outside of Port Angeles.” I told him playing with the cars antenna.

“Why did you move from the city to the middle of nowhere?” Jake asked on.

“Oh um…well I’d rather not get into it,” I mumbled to myself.

“Are you naturally clumsy or does it just happen?” Jake asked out of the blue.

“What?” I asked back confused.

“Well for starters you have a wicked scar on your hand then there are the bruises.” He said pointing to one of my fresh bruises careful not to touch it.

“Jake please just drop it.” I asked politely. I really didn’t want to unleash my Pandora’s box onto him.

Jake was about to say something else when Gus called from his office, “Alright kiddies go home!”

I grabbed my lunch pale and made my way to the car. As I was about to get in a bad feeling hit me like a ton of bricks.

Something was not sitting right with Karma and it was my Karma that was getting played with. My phone range once then went silent. I looked at the caller id to see who it was but it read unknown number. The phone rang again and pressed ignore to see the id. I looked at the number and almost puked. “Crap!” I yelled then quickly got into the car.

I took off down the street in a panic, thankfully we are in the middle of nowhere because I didn’t want to stop at any lights and there was no traffic on the lone stretch of highway.

Let me just be freaking over nothing, God please just let me be paranoid. I tried to plead with myself, I tried pleading with God.

I slowly pulled up to my house and parked on the street. THAT car was in my driveway. HE had found me once again. I tried to slow my breathing before I got out of the car. HE was sitting on my porch waiting for me.

“Surprised to see me?” HE asked standing up.

“What are you doing here?” I asked my voice cracked revealing my nervousness. I felt like a mouse and HE was a tiger ready to kill me once again.

“What I can’t visit you?” HE asked with a laugh getting closer.

“I told you to leave me alone, to stay away from me.” I tried to yell, but my voice was just a whisper.

“I can see you when ever I want remember?” HE smiled walking even closer.

“Stay away from me!” I finally shouted at him, and it felt good.

“Don’t tell ME what to do!” HE yelled back at me.

Before I knew it, I was laying on the ground. HE hit me again just like all the times before and all my bad memories resurfaced in my mind.

HE crouched over me and was shouting things at me but I couldn’t hear them, because my head was still spinning.

Then everything went quiet, except for the low growling coming from behind me. I slowly turned to meet eye to eye with a massive wolf.

Where did it come from? How did the thing get so huge? What just happened? Questions flooded my mind then I remembered why I was on the ground.

When I turned around to see where HE was, HE was trying to get inside his car as fast as he could. Then I turned once again to meet the wolf, “Please if you are going to eat me, just do it quick.” I pleaded with it.

The wolf made an awkward sound like it was laughing then the wolf started shaking its head. Then the wolf was JAKE and a naked Jake.

“Are you okay?” Jake asked shyly.

“Wait…You…Were…Wait…What?” was all I could come up with.

Jake smiled and laughed then started to say something but my ears started to ring and my vision started to tunnel in and everything went black.
