THE GIRL WITH THE MARK – Episode 39

0

Hanley tried to recall the previous day. She didn’t remember meeting with anyone except Harmonie and… Yes, Mr Jefferson.

She was in Mr Jefferson’s office when she felt the pain. ” Yes.” She replied.

” Who was that?” He asked again.

” Mr Jefferson. He just wanted to check on me due to the incident of my hair.” She answered.

” Have you ever noticed anything strange about him? ”

” Apart from the fact that every students and the management loves him, ” shook her head, ” no, he’s just cool. ”

” What about today?”

” I was in my classroom and then, it started itching me. ”

” Just like that? He wasn’t in the class when it started? ”

” You think Mr Jefferson is a werewolf too? ” She asked back.

” We all do. Since the last time we talked about him, I don’t really trust him a bit.”

” Thought you were only jealous of him. ”

” I wasn’t, since he has nothing to do with you. But now I see he is crossing his boundaries, and I won’t tolerate someone… anyone touching my property even. And I won’t mind having you changed to a different school. ”

Hanley wondered why this was happening. If he has to change her to a different school, then she’ll have to lose Harmonie.

Though she has weird thoughts about Mr Jefferson, it never got to the extent of thinking he was responsible for the pains to talk of being a werewolf.

If so, then he’s a pretty good pretender. He looks so gentle and kind like he was God’s bosom angel sent from heaven.

And for the fact that he was extremely handsome, then he’s definitely one of those fallen angels.

” Mary,” she called, ” have you seen Ace?” She asked, after searching both his room and study room for him.

” Alpha Ace left. ” Mary replied.

” Left?” She asked. ” To where? ”

” I don’t know. ”

Immediately, Hanley ran to Lunara’s room, she pushed the door open. ” Hanley?” Lunara stared at her, surprised.

” Mother, he’s gone.” She said.

” Who is gone?” She asked, confused.

” Ace. He is not in his room, he is nowhere. ” She cried.

” Hanley, Ace will be back soon. He only went out to think for a while, after that he will return home.” She tried calming her down.

” But why would he go without telling anyone? ”

” I believe he has his reasons for doing so. ”

Lunara pulled her that she laid her head in her shoulder. ” Why mother, why do I feel so different? Why do I feel new inside of me? Why do I feel like my heart had been twisted? This feelings, it keeps growing every single day.

I thought I would hate him forever. I never thought of either of this to happen to me. But why, why do I feel like he’s troubled? ”

” Because… because you’ve understood what fate has for you. You feel new because you’ve embraced your destiny. And yes, Ace do feel troubled because he’s scared someone else will take you from him.”

” But why? I don’t hate him anymore and I wouldn’t do anything to hurt him or you or anyone. Why would he be scared I’d go after someone else?” She questioned bitterly.

” It’s not what you think, Han. The one who has triggered your mark is the same who wishes to have you.

Ace needs to think on how to overcome this strategies. Why? Because the one after you isn’t just a human, and definitely not a mere werewolf as we speak.”

” But Ace is the one who owns the mark, why then will it respond to someone else?” She asked, worried.

She sighed, hoping she too can find an answer to that. ” I don’t know, I have never experienced this before.”

” How long will he stay away from home?”

” Long enough. Sometimes it takes him a day and half or even two days to get over with his problems. Let’s just hope he finds a solution to this on time or things will turn out the wrong way.”

Hanley waited for hours for Ace to return. When she saw there was no sign of him, she forced herself to sleep despite how troubled she was.

Not about thirty minutes she had slept off, he returned. The first place he headed to was her room.

Quietly he opened the door, peeping in from the door. When he saw she didn’t move, but could only hear her gentle breath, he smiled, shutting the door after him.

He returned back to the sitting room where Lunara and Edward sat, waiting for him.

” Have you come up with an idea?” Lunara asked, hastenly.

” Yes, and it’s a good one.” He answered, making himself comfortable on one of the sofa.

” Which is?” Edward asked.

” I want you to apply for a job in BridgeGate.” He said factly, referring to Edward.

” What?” Lunara questioned. ” Why would you think like that?”

” That’s the only way we can find out who this Jefferson of a guy is and what he really wants in the school. If I haven’t gone to her school before, I would have done that myself. ” He said.

” So what job do you want me to apply for? ” Edward asked.

” It’s up to you. If you can serve as a cleaner… ” He held himself from smiling.

Edward shook his head. ” You’re not being serious are you?”

He shrugged. ” That’s the perfect disguise I know. Well, it’s up to you. Besides, you’ve been perfect in geography since high school, why don’t you go for that? ” He suggested.

” That’s actually what I was thinking. So when do I start the job?” He asked, anxiously.

” Tomorrow. ”

” But what if this Jefferson finds out about you? ” Lunara asked, worried. ” He might expose you, who knows?”

” That’s what we want.” Ace added. ” As soon as he find out that there is another werewolf in his new territory, it will delay whatever action he wants to make. Especially on Hanley. ”

Lunara nodded in agreement, that was indeed a good idea.
