Jadelyn lives In Tilimto with her big brother Devin and prefers to spend her free time alone with good music. Her life as a werewolf might seem simple, but that's exactly why it's perfect, were if not for a fire that changes everything. ***** A place called Tilimto, which seemed inconspicuous between mountains and forest, but had more to offer than meets the eyes. Two areas separated by a river that could only be crossed by a guarded bridge. The upper ones lived on the northern side, and the lower ones on the southern side. It was a good thing because the upper ones were all dangerous and arrogant, at least if you could believe the old ones in the pack. That's where the alpha lived, the beta, their families and the employees plus appendages. With their constant fireworks, they often showed in what luxury they lived, but | didn't give a shit. Everything was quite normal for us below. We were all werewolves, too, which made us special in a way, but we lived our simple lives and were perfectly content with it. Then a fire broke out. A fire that not only reduced a building to ashes, but also changed my life from the ground up... ...and not exactly in a good way.
"Have you read what happened at the superiors?"
Devin sat across from me at the kitchen table,
looking intently at his phone while I got busy
pouring us both a cup of coffee to perk up.
"No, what is it?" I asked, yawning and briefly
closed my eyes to take in the wonderful smell of
the coffee before I took a strong sip and turned my
gaze back to my brother.
Looking thoughtful, he put his phone down, ran a
hand through his brown, curly hair, and then took
a deep breath. That worried look in his sea blue
eyes was once again typical of him. Ever since our
parents abandoned us 2 years ago, he had taken on
the role of minder and often drove me insane with
â€œTheir school burned down," he then explained,
looking at me intently. "We might have problems if
they come to your school"If..." I said with a certain emphasis and tried to
take some of his worry away, which of course
"Jady, you stay away from them!"
He got up to put on his blue sports jacket while I
just rolled my eyes in annoyance at his stern tone.
His eyes met me immediately.
"Stop it! You know how much I hate that."
"Then don't treat me like a kid. After all, I'm 17 and
you're only 2 years older, so don't let the nanny
hang around here."
I stuck my tongue out at him and then gave him a
provocative wink, which made him grin stupidly
and throw my denim jacket at me.
"Get dressed, we're going."
He grabbed his cup of coffee, drank it all down inone gulp, then grabbed his phone to turn his mind
back to the fire.
Still slightly tired, I also got up from the round
wooden table and put on my jacket to grab my
light-colored backpack afterwards.
How I would like to look at my cell phone now, just
like him, but I had lost it on my trip in the forest,
which my brother wasn't allowed to find out.
I told him that it had been stolen from me because
it was forbidden for us lower classes to stay in the
forest. If he knew all the laws I was breaking
behind his back, he would almost certainly lock me
up in this little cottage.
"Ground to Jady," he snapped me out of my
thoughts and then put his arm around my
shoulders to leave the house with me.
Arriving at his old, silver VW, he obligingly held
the passenger door open for me and, smiling, Icollapsed onto the seat to buckle up and take a
look in the mirror.
I was immediately happy about my long eyelashes,
which saved me from having to spend hours in the
bathroom in the morning like the others my age.
My green irises flitted over my long, straight
brown hair, which I wore loose as always and
which I arranged well for the time being.
"Who are you making up for? You know not to
Devin looked over at me worried and I immediately
dodged my reflection to turn on the radio in
"Just for me," I snapped at him while listening to
the soft RnB music. I knew it was dangerous to be
noticed as a woman, especially an untagged one,
but that didn't mean I had to act like a scarecrow.
He turned back to the front, drove down the streetand when we got to the parking lot in front of my
school, where it was already busy, he got out with
me, which made me roll my eyes again in
"Does it always have to be?" I whined and stood
next to the car while he ran over to me.
"Do you think I like doing that? I just don't want to
take any risks! Especially not when these idiots are
coming to your school now."
In front of the stairs to the entrance I saw my
friend Aleya, who had a close look at me and
She and my brother would have made a great
couple, but no one here knew he was my brother
because that was our little but important secret...
"I'll pick you up later." He pulled me close and
closed his eyes to plant a quick kiss on the lips that
just felt completely wrong.
He looked really good and his lips were soft and
just tasted delicious like coffee, but the thought
that he was my brother sent an unpleasant shiver
down my spine, which forced me to break away
from him immediately.
"See you later," I sniffed, wanting to wipe my-
mouth, but Devin was right. Our cover couldn't be
blown, or I'd probably be in constant danger.
So, smiling, I watched him get back in the car and
screech out of the school parking lot, feeling the
other studentsâ€™ eyes on my back.
Yes, it was unusual to have a partner before the
age of 18, but at least that way I was protected
Shaking my head, I banished the gloomy thoughts
and turned to face Aleya, then walked towards her.
Barely standing in front of her, she pulled me into
a friendly hug.
"You're so lucky with your boyfriend," she
murmured somewhat brokenly, and I took a deep
If she knew...
"Oh yeah, I'm lucky," I said with exaggerated ironyand then quickly broke away from her while her
scent of cinnamon enveloped me.
She tossed her black hair over her shoulder, smiled
confused at my sarcasm, and then walked into the
school building with me.
"Have you heard about the heads up?" she asked
excitedly when we arrived in front of our
classroom and our mutual friend Sawyer joined us.
"Yes, I heard it," the blonde politely answered
Aleya's question and before I could join in the
gossip, heard them both take a deep breath while
their curious eyes fell past me.
Curious, I turned around and immediately saw
several young people I didn't know running down
the wide aisle.
They were our age, and like us, they wore normal
clothes, but their charisma was different and
overshadowed everything else. The smell of the
forest that surrounded them also took over the
"It must be the ones upstairs,â€ whispered Aleya,
who was standing between me and Sawyer, her
mouth no longer seeming to close in sheer
My gaze fell from her to the girl with the curly
black hair, who looked shy and somehow helpless
between two well-built boys. She was the only one
who didn't quite fit into this picture and that's
exactly why she drew my full attention.
It wasn't until the big guy next to her noticed mystare and glared at me that I looked away
nervously at my friends, who seemed obsessed
