XD Odd title because I'm feeling weird.

This last week on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights I got little sleep. Makes for very odd dreams.

Birthday is this week and Catfish gave me my present early because I have no time around my birthday to use the gift and it was a good way to get used to it and blah blah blah. Needless to say I'm going to be gaming a lot more. >.> 3DSXL and I bought Pokemon White and Pokemon X. Tips from other players are appreciated.

I didn't get work on Razor's Secret done Friday night because I binge-watched American Horror Story: Coven with a friend and it was AWESOME!!! We finished last night. >.> So good.

I'm going to be catching up tonight and using my games as treats/rewards.

Saturday was a girl's day with my mom and a friend and I found some books. Need to finish some and it's going to be interesting to see what happens.

My desk is an utter disaster right now. I need to clean it, but first I need TIME to spend cleaning. Maybe I'll wake up early tomorrow or clean tomorrow after work. Catfish is coming over Thursday and staying a few days and then I'm at his place for the weekend, so time is not in large supply.

Peace everyone.

Chapter 4: Anything For Her

            I would do anything for her. She's the only friend I have left who isn't in the gang and who doesn't know or care if I am or am not a shifter. I can smell that she is, but she hasn't said anything to me yet so I don't let on that I know. Devlin hates her for whatever reasons he has. When we first met her he made it very clear that he didn't like her and his dislike rapidly became hatred when he found out that I had a crush on her.

            We were 16 when our parents died. Devlin and I came home and within minutes a police officer was at the door to inform us. By law we could have a relative take care of us, but my parents had never put anyone down as godparents because either relatives wanted only me or only Devlin or neither of us. No one wanted two boys with polar opposite personalities.

            That's always how it's been. Devlin and I look a lot alike, but not exactly the same, but our personalities have always been different. He's cocky, I'm calm and quiet. Devlin didn't say anything about our parents dying except that he didn't want to have to move and start new somewhere else. I agreed that starting over would be hard and we ran all of our options with the police and lawyers and informed the school about what had happened. Devlin never acted as though it affected him in the least. I handled everything. He stopped going to school for a while. I'd hear him come home in the middle of the night, but by the time I woke up in the morning he'd be long gone, but he always came back. I'd been working by then and needed whatever sleep I was able to get.

            When our parents died Angeline was the only one who bothered to ask me if I wanted to talk about anything. All my teachers, and even some of Devlin's, asked if I wanted to talk about my parents. I'll never forget the day I really fell for Angeline. She was coming over to study and after school ended she met me at my car and sat on the ground waiting for me to get there. "I've been waiting for you." She said.

            "Could have come to my class or text me." I teased.

            She shrugged, "Could have, but the weather is nice and I'm okay with sitting outside for a while." She smiled at me and my heart melted. It always melted when she smiled at me.

            I typed in the code to unlock the car, opened her door, and then walked to my side of the car while she got in. The ride to my house was spent in silence aside from music playing. Some group that had disbanded for whatever reason they had even though they had a huge fan base and their music was always popular. I pulled in the drive and as I turned off the car she finally spoke.

            "You know," she paused, taking a deep breath as we turned to look at each other, "if there's ever anything you want to talk about, anything, you can always call me."

            "Even if it's 3 A.M. and I've had a bad dream?" I teased, joking.

            "Oh, especially if it's 3 A.M. and you've had a bad dream!" She said as I laughed weakly. "I mean it, Du, if there's anything you want to talk about give me a call. If you don't want to talk on the phone I don't care what time of day or night it is, I'll come over."

            We sat in utter silence as I gripped the steering wheel, staring down at my feet. My parents had been dead and buried for two weeks and people had not yet gotten the hint that I didn't want to talk about them. "Actually, there is something, Ange."

            "Yeah?"

            "Can we talk about ANYTHING that is NOT my dead parents?"

            "Pick a topic."

            With those three words I knew I'd fallen in love with her. I have been ever since. Seven years later and I'm still in love with her. I still haven't told her.

Chapter 3: Born This Way

            I spend a lot of my time sitting and thinking. And naked. Demeter says I need to at least wear shorts when Im human and, for him, I do. If it was anyone else telling me to put clothes on there would be a fight, but Demeter is the Alpha in a gang of shifters. We do not cross him. I listen because I want to be like him. Powerful, feared, in control. Total control. Thats what he has over us. He is the most powerful of us all and chooses what we do for our gang jobs.

            I scout and do whatever is needed if Demeter is busy elsewhere, Sam is record keeper, Luke a.k.a. Lucian is housekeeper and nanny to Sam, and Flint takes care of cleaning by fire when needed. Theres another gang member, sort of. My twin brother, Duval. He hasnt shown his face in so long that no one really knows what it is he does for the gang.

            My brother, not quite scum. Theres only one person I hate more than my brother and thats the girl he chases after. The one he calls his best friend. Angeline. He followed her around like a lost puppy when we were in school. She calls him Du, and he calls her Ange. I despise her. She made him weak when he was strong.

            You have to be strong to get in the gang. You also have to be a shifter of some sort, but Demeter made an exception for Duval. All Duval had to do was keep up with Demeter in a fight. The rest of us had to manage to stay standing and our position depended on our skills and what we did in retaliation to Demeter attacking us. Sam didnt last long and Luke jumped in to protect him.

            I dont know how Duval ended up in his position or what happened during the match. Duval had one request and that was that no one else was in the room except for him and Demeter. I was rather hoping that Duval would get his rear handed to him, but he came out in one piece. Demeter came into my room after the match and told me, too calmly, that Duval was fine and to stay away from him. When I told Demeter that that wouldnt be a problem he seemed happy about it. The only contact I have with my brother is if I need something from him or if hes spying on me. Demeter has lightened up since Duval is no longer in the group. I work a lot for the group so I dont need to see Duval for money. It also helps that he controls the money our parents left us when they died and he puts some in my account now and then in case I need something. Guess he doesnt want to see me just as much as I dont want to see him.

            Devlin! Demeter yelled.

            I jumped out of my hammock and silently landed before Demeter could open the door. Yes, boss?

            My office.

            I followed Demeter out of my room and into his office. The gang is housed in what used to be a gym. Demeter uses the office overlooking everything as his space and Im the only one otherwise who actually stays there all the time. For the others its usually just off and on or during the full moon so we hunt together. Duval never participated in our hunts. He preferred to lock himself in the basement at his house. Fine by me. Just less time I had to be around him.

            Were shifters. We can change whenever we want. Demeter says its a rush to change in full daylight when theres someone who needs to be hurt and hes right. Shifting while the sun beats down on you is a feeling like no other. Werewolves will never be able to shift fully under the sun. This is one of the things that sets us apart from them and one of the things that makes us better. Were not tied to any one being or any one cycle. We shift when the moon is full because its the most powerful. For weres we hear its like being torn apart. Demeter said he was able to speak with a werewolf about it once before he killed him. I would have loved to be there for that. Demeter has style when he fights.

            Duval was born a human, probably with dormant shifter DNA. Ever since I was a kid Ive been able to change into a wolf. Any piercings we have as humans stay there. The first time you shift with piercings in it hurts. Some of us like that. My wolf form is fierce. Black fur, red eyes, toes on my front paws are red, my muzzle and chest are read, and I have black nails. The piercings I wear are two silver and two gold. Gold on top because shifters can wear silver and gold. Weres can only wear gold because they are weak against silver. I can imagine a werewolfs grave death by dinner fork.

Devlin was a pain in my ass to write. He gave me the most trouble, but I like how it changes over the story.
Loading...
So yesterday I started writing "Razor's Secret" which was originally going to be about Razor and stuffed animals, but I couldn't do a whole story on the animals but I DID figure something for it. I changed it to be Razor finding a journal she'd forgotten about and the entries which gives you a really nice look into that Razor. We're not talking about Razor the wolf medic I use for RP here on dA, we're talking about the original Razor character I had who got married and became Razor Masurame and had 9 kids Razor. The whole reason my nickname is Razor is because it happened when she was created. I'm eager to share more of her.

I still use the other Razor and she's just as much a part of me as Masurame Razor.

I'm not sure when I'll be posting the story, but it's only a few chapters and my goal is finishing the writing by my birthday (2 weeks; 10/23). I'm writing it through Google Docs which I've never used before, but I can use it on my phone so it's interesting to try that. Mostly I'm working on my laptop for it. Makes it interesting to do something new on a new device.

Updates otherwise:
Work is getting chaotic for me, I'm still nervous about different things, I've got a lot happening next week, and I'm unsure about how next weekend will work out as well as my birthday weekend because more and more stuff gets planned that weekend and I can't trade for the weekend after it because the one after it is NaNoWriMo beginning and I really DON'T want to have to work on that day because I took off the day before and some days after and it really sucks having to come in like that. I am happy that I get to see a friend or two soon and get to do things that I've been looking forward to. Can't wait for Saturday night. Can't. Freaking. Wait.

Chapter 2: Where Am I?

            Running, running. Cant stop. Is he after me? Dont look, keep running. Duval! Help!

~

            I bolted upright in a bed. Not my bed. A bed. No idea where I was. Then I smelled him. All around me. When I looked down at my side I saw him turning over.

            Morning, Ange. He mumbled. I was in Duvals bed.

            Why am I here? I rubbed my forehead, trying to remember.

            You were sitting on my porch last night after failing to break in. My neighbor called me to let me know someone was at my house so I came home. You were in shock from something, but all I know is as soon as I got you in my house you passed out in my arms. If I went more than five feet from you, you started tossing and turning so I figured it was better to stay nearby. It seemed like you needed sleep and I knew I did, so I brought you to the room with the biggest bed. Mine. Laid you under the covers on one side, plugged my phone in, and crawled in myself.

            I nodded at him, looking down at my hands. Theres dirt under my nails. I muttered, not fully realizing it.

            Do you want to get a shower here or would you prefer if I take you back to your place?

            I thought for what felt like a long time, trying to remember my own home. I cant remember. Something happened Cant remember.

            I looked up when I felt him moving around, getting out of the bed and stretching. Let me take you back to your place so you can get cleaned up and changed.

            I sat there, not moving, just blinking for a few minutes before I finally nodded. Okay.

            He looked at me and sat in front of me. Ange, are you going to be okay? Do you want me to bring you with me to work? Do you want me to call in a day off?

            I felt the tears running down my face before I ever realized I was crying. Part of a memory reared in my head. I was being chased. Thats where the dirt came from.

            Just let it come back bit by bit. Your mind will let you see what you need to see. Dont force it. Come on. Ill call into work while youre getting a shower or bath or whatever you want. He smiled.

That moment where you wake up and have no idea where you are. Oh Ange! XD I love these two. I really do. Duval and Angeline are two characters I had a LOT of fun writing. Du more than Ange. He actually cooperated. His twin was a mega pain in my ass. You'll meet him in the next chapter.
