"Bella had a picture of that guy. Said his name was Jacob Black. He might be able to help us find her!"

"Well, like I said...they haven't spoken in ages" Logan said, backtracking.

"I'm sorry. It was a stupid idea," I said. "Besides, I can't exactly leave the castle. Jack would hunt me down"

"Kyna...I've got something to tell you"

"What?"

"Well, the reason my step dad left your mum alone before she disappeared was because he changed. He...he wasn't what he thought he was"

"What do you mean? Logan, I don't understand"

"He wasn't exactly normal. He had this reaction when vampires were around. He...he's a werewolf" my eyes widened.

"And that's one of the reasons I don't want you looking for him. They're unstable creatures!"

"How do you know? Don't they have like their vow of secrecy thing?"

"When my mum moved in with him, Jake was out one day, walking with me and he got upset about something. And he changed. He made me swear not to tell my mum, and I didn't. She'd think I was mad"

"Why tell me?"

"Because, I don't want you running off and getting yourself killed by either Jack or my step-dad. He has no idea where Bella is"

"Can you please, send him a message? Just to see. She might have contacted him. I can't leave the castle walls so I have to find another way"

"Fine! I'll ask him but he'll probably say no"

"Thank you," I said. The clock chimed.

"I've got to go," I said. I stood up and turned.

"Kyna"

"Yes?"

"Don't do anything stupid. Keep yourself safe, okay?"

"Sure" I said. His comment surprised and confused me. My safety was not his concern. I headed inside. I was lucky; the halls were empty. I reached my room without any disturbances. I climbed into bed.


The next day was sunny and when I'd finished my chores, I headed outside. There was a swimming pool but we weren't allowed to use it. It was so hot. I needed to cool down. Most of the girls were hanging out in the courtyard but I headed over to the wall where there was a patch of grass shadowed by the bricks. I lay in the cool grass.

"Penny for your thoughts?" said a voice. I bolted up.

"Chill out!" in front of me was a girl I didn't recognize.

"Who are you?"

"I'm Vanessa. I've been packed off here"

"I'm Kyna"

"Cool name. Mind if I join you?"

"No. it's not like I own the grass" I joked. She grinned. I took in what she was wearing. The house cleaners were required to wear a uniform. She was wearing a halter-top and ripped jeans. Her hair was black with blood red streaks in.

"I take it your not here to work?" I asked.

"Nah. My mum got sick of me. She's a vampire but I was never the right age to be turned. She figured, if anyone could teach me discipline, it would be her ex-boyfriend"

"Ex-boyfriend?" I asked.

"Yeah. Jack. I know he's got that whole multiple wives thing going on but he and my mum hooked up a while ago. I always thought he was a jackass"

"Vanessa!" snapped a loud voice. I looked up. It was Jack.

"You were sent here to be taught. And I'd appreciate it if you didn't talk to my servants" his tone was cool and authoritarian. He looked at me and raised an eyebrow. I blushed slightly and looked away.

"Sure, whatever" she said, blowing him off.

"Now, go to your room" when she'd left, Jack turned to me.

"Kyna, don't you have a job to do?" I got up and started to leave. He grabbed my arm.

"And in future if you leave the castle at night without permission you will be severely punished. And your relationship with the stable boy is to end. May I remind you that you are at this castle at my discretion and if you wish to remain you would do well to obey" then he turned and marched off.
