BLOOD ON MY HANDS EPISODE 6
I followed the woman for a while before we stopped at a fenced house. She pushed the small gate open and signaled for me to follow her. I was amazed at how big her house was, I didn’t expect to find such big houses at the farm, our house was big but the one I was looking at was extra huge.
Most of the farms in the place belonged to rich folks, they were well developed no wonder mum bought one.
She opened the door to the house and I walked right behind her, she pointed at a couch for me to take a sit and I just did that. The house was beautiful, the furniture was too exquisite for such a place. On the wall were photos of her and portraits of wolves hung on the other side of the room.
“You will take a bath first then we shall talk” She said
I nodded my head in agreement as I wondered who she was. After a few minutes she escorted me to a room that i sensed was the guest room and directed me to the bathroom.
My body was still sore and the water felt like heaven on my skin. I took a long bath, as events of the past night triggered in my mind.
When I was done, I walked out and found clean clothes on the bed. I quickly applied lotion, then wore the white new lace pant and matching bra that was next to the clothes.
The clothes she picked fit me perfectly, it was a blue jean and white T-shirt. When I was done I combed my hair backwards tying it at the end with a ribbon I found on the table.
I walked out of the room and found her watching Television.
“You are done already?” She asked
“Call me Cleo, madam makes me feel too old” She smiled
Afterwards she gave me some food which I rapidly ate as if I had been starved for days. I drank some water when I was done and I quietly sat on the couch biting my nails.
“So what happened to you?” She asked as she stared at me
“You wouldn’t believe it”
I felt I could trust her so I narrated my ordeal to her. When I finished she just smiled at me, not the reaction I was expecting, I thought she would freak out but she was calmly smiling.
“You don’t believe me?” I asked worriedly
“You do ?” I asked surprised
“Yes I do, welcome to my world” She said
“Your world?” I asked raising my eyebrows
“Yes the world of werewolves” She loudly said
I had watched a number of movies on werewolves, where people turned into Wolves during a full moon. I never believed in the existence of such, I still didn’t.
“No, no that’s a lie” I said shaking my head
“Yes my dear, you were bitten by a wolf and now you are one of us, you shall carry the curse of the wolf for as long as you shall live” She said
“No is there a way I can get rid of the curse, I wanna live a normal life, I can’t be an animal”
“There is no way out but you can live a normal life like I do” She said
“No, no, no” I said tears falling
“Listen to me, you can use this curse to protect those around you, you can be a good wolf its your choice” She said
“What do you mean?”
“You don’t have to kill people when thirsty for blood, you can always kill an animal to quench your thirst”
“Yes but when you use this curse to kill people your end will be fatal”
“You are likely to die too after you have killed a number of people”
“This is absurd”I yelled out
“You will find yourself getting very angry at times and you will easily be provoked but as time goes by you will learn to control it so you can associate with others without them suspecting a thing”
“This sucks” I yelled
“It’s all up to you, you can return back and live a normal life but you need to know when the full moon is around the corner so you can stay away from people”
“And the pain during the transformation?”
“It won’t always be painful, but most times it is painful”
“I can’t do this, its all a lie am a person not a wolf, what happened yesterday was just a bad nightmare”
“It’s all up to you, as time goes by you will learn more about the werewolf life”
“I think I need to go back home” I said
“Wait I will drive you to your house, if you don’t mind” She said as she grabbed her car keys
I felt weak, how on earth was I to live like this,I never bargained for any of this stuff and one way or another I had to find a way out.
As she drove me home, I kept replaying everything in my mind, from the stabbing to the beast biting me, the transformation and my conversation with Cleo.
“Do you want me to go in with you?” She asked as she parked at my place looking at how many cars where parked outside my house
We walked into the yard and found a number of people.
“There she is” Our maid shouted to some people who were carrying my parents bodies
“Poor child” Another woman shook her head as she bypassed me
We had a maid at the farm house that came occasionally to help with the cleaning and other stuff.
She narrated how she got to my place that morning and found my parents dead in their kitchen hence she called the police.
I shook in fear as they called me to give a statement. Cleo held my hand and assured all would trun out just fine.
The story will now focus more on Lia’s life what happens to her now?
