Hanley woke up by the chirping sound of the morning birds. The pain from the marking last night was like a trauma to her skin.

Right under her ribs, she could still feel the hunting itch of the mark.

She glared around the room, like it was her first time being in there.

Not a second thought, Hanley made it out of the bed to her wardrobe.

She started packing her stuffs into her backpack with her pony slippers and two shoes.

” Hanley!” Micheal, her little brother called from the outside. ” Hanley!!” He called again, raising his voice.

” What monkey?!” She yelled back.

” Breakfast is ready!” He said, not minding how loud his voice was. He left.

She hissed.

Michael was one hell of a brother and definitely a pain in the ass.

He was only six years older than Hanley and yet, most times he acts like a six year old child.

She hid her backpack back into her wardrobe, underneath her clothes.

Possibly against Micheal who is able to sneak in at anytime.

She had a quick brush before heading out of her room, down to the dinning room where the others sat already eating on their breakfast.

Hanley wasn’t focused on what she was eating, her mind was here and there, busy on how to make her imaginary plans work out.

All she was after was a successful sneak out of the house without anyone finding out.

” Dad, Hanley called me a monkey.” Micheal complained, getting everyone’s attention.

She threw him a hard glare. ” You better shut the fu*k up or I help you with that.” She threatened.

” Hanley, mind your words. ” Said her mother. ” We’ve talked about saying fu*k here. ” She reminded.

” Sorry. But you have to warn this black mouth for yelling at my door. ”

” Michael? ” She turned her gaze to her son. ” Did you yell at her door?” She asked.

” I thought she was asleep.” He defended.

“Now say sorry to your sister, Mic.” She said.

” Sorry.” He felt embarrassed. It didn’t go as he expected.

Hanley threw her tongue out at him, giving him a middle finger.

As if the day knew how desperate Hanley was to go, night approached so sudden.

While the rest of the family went out, Hanley stayed back at home.

She made sure she had done her duties, made dinner and had a warm bath.

She took some food stuffs from the kitchen, shoving it all into her backpack. Then she wrote a short note, dropping it on the dinning table.

« I’m leaving. I’m going some where far away from here. Please, don’t come looking for me because you guys will never find me.

I can’t let Alpha Ace take me with him. No, I still have a long way to go in this life. Move on with your lives, and I will move on with mine.

I’m sorry I am doing this in the wrong way, but it’s also for my own good. Take good care of yourselves for me. I love you guys. ”

She sneaked out, even without telling her best friend Flo. She knew if she had to tell her, they will convince her to tell them of her whereabout.

As soon as she left the house through the back door, she began to run. She didn’t stop from running, until she was sure she was far away from home.

She stopped by a tree, leaning against it to catch her lost breath. ” Phew! Never thought I’d make it out of there.”

She kept on with her journey after a brief rest. At night, Hanley would gather some woods to make fire for herself.

Outside home felt cold. The wind blew on her skin, causing her to shiver.

She would used her clothes to make blanket for herself. Even the creepy sound of the night creatures frightened her.

Some how she felt like the wolves were watching her. And this only made her spend the rest of the night awake.

Hanley was heading to nowhere in particular. She was ready to go anywhere as far as it was far away from home.
