For those who don't already know, on Nov.21st around 1:15 to 1:30 in the morning I finished and validated my NaNoWriMo novel "Meeting Mr. Right", often referred to as MMR.

If anyone has questions about why or how I do NaNo feel free. For now, I'm looking forward to cheering my fellow writers and friends onward as they keep writing. I also look forward to catching up on some reading.

Chapter 8: How Long Can I Hide?

            I hadn't been at Duval's long before I started feeling less like myself. After the first week the nightmares stayed around, but I had the feeling that if he knew I was still having nightmares two weeks later he'd try and take me to a doctor to get sleeping pills or something or take me to a therapist. That was the last thing I needed, so I put on a mask of sorts and just kept going day to day. I entered records for a shipping and receiving facility so luckily all my job required was me sitting at a computer entering in data and the most beyond that was getting up to do some inventory.

            Downside? All I did was sit at a computer and enter data. The less sleep I got the harder it was to focus and enter the information in correctly. I kept worrying that I was making mistakes or that I would eventually make a big mistake and get fired. There weren't many jobs in Orange Pine Valley.

            Duval was nothing but supportive when I told him my fears about losing my job. "If it happens, it happens. I'll help you find another one. No matter how hard it gets. And if anything happens you always have a room at my house. I've been thinking about expanding anyway."

            "Besides the living room, kitchen, both bathrooms, and your room you still have the basement, guest bedroom, your old room, Devlin's old room, and the den your dad used. Why do you need or want to expand?"

            "For the change. Change can be good sometimes."

            I thought about that and nodded, staring down at the tea he'd made. If you were with Duval tea was always an option. It honestly surprised me that the man wasn't jittery all the time with as much tea as he drank, but at the same time if you knew him he drank a lot of water. I hadn't known him as well as I thought until I saw him packing his lunchbox for work one night. He'd loaded it down with water bottles. Large ones. He said it was because water helped keep him calm and awake. I tried it and he was right. Water was easy on the body and it allowed you more energy. He probably would have made me drink even more of it than he did if he'd known I was a shifter. I didn't quite know what he was, but he wasn't all human. I didn't know if it had anything to do with who his brother was though. Devlin never had smelled right. Not from day one. Something was seriously wrong with him.
Blame Kiba.

1. This meme may be personal. You ready for it? 
Did you see my title? :evillaugh:

2. If you married the last person you texted, what would your last name be? 
(If we go with someone other than my mother since no and same last name)
Snook.

3. Were you happy when you woke up today?

4. When were you on the phone last? And with who? 
My mother this morning.
Kiba a couple nights ago.

5. What are you excited for? 
Seeing Catfish again. :heart: And finishing my novel.

6. What were you doing yesterday? 
Writing, watching movies (vagina dentata!), and hanging out with a friend. And texting.

Catfish. He left the message when he left for work and I was sleeping.

Lunch. *noms*

Yes. Turd 2, Kiba, Lupus, Catfish, WDLady and some other writers.

10. Are you scared to fall in love? 
Nope.

11. Do you think teenagers can be in love? 
"Excuse you, i fell in love with my man at 15, fuck off." - Kiba
Oh sis... And yes, I think they can because there are varying degrees of love.

12. Last person you wanted to punch in the face? 
*thinks* I try to avoid that feeling...

23. Why do you think so many people cheat? 
Temptation, stupidity, seeing if they can get away with it, feeling like the other person is cheating, revenge. There are a lot of reasons people do it. Does that make it right? No.

Work pants and black tank. Yes. This particular tank no because is BIG and could flash boob. *minutes later* Now I'm wearing sleep pants so unless I'd go to a friend's house and ONLY there no, I would not go in public like this. Not unless it was like 3 in the morning and no one I know would be around to see me. That's people I know from work, not like friends.

63. Have you ever kissed someone whose name started with a J? 
2 people whose first names had J to start. Dated one with the last name starting with J.

Against the wall. Unless it's Cody's bed then he's usually against the wall because I'm the one that wakes up 5 million times a night.

65. What's the first thing you'll do on your wedding day? 
Say/text good morning/I love you to the groom. Then make sure everything's ready while he tells me eat something because he likes breakfast and I don't usually eat any. This is based off Catfish and I.

Chapter 7: Living Together

            For the first couple of weeks that Angeline was living with me she had nightmares every night. Nightmares that she couldn't wake up from no matter how much happened in the real world. I could shake her, hold her, throw water on her, but no matter what I tried nothing woke her from whatever nightmare held her that night. I don't even know if it was a different nightmare each night because she never shared anything. The first week she was almost like a zombie and it was obvious that the nightmares bothered her, but the second week she was less like a zombie and with each day she was a little more like herself. During the day she didn't remember any nightmares, but once night hit and she fell asleep she spent almost the entire night tossing and turning. I was thankful for both her sake and mine that she had stopped screaming or crying in her sleep.

            She had called in sick to work for a few days due to lack of sleep and just before she went back we drove over to her place to get her mail and her car so if something happened to mine or if she needed to go anywhere we weren't relying on one vehicle alone. Good thing, too, because I'd called in a few last minute trades at work so I could sit with her in case she had a panic attack meaning I was working different days and longer hours than I normally would have. At least I had the same supervisor all the time.

            Roy had been in some time of mood when I'd called in and talked about the last minute trades and things. Apparently someone from the shift I was covering hadn't shown up for a few days so things were backed up and she hadn't called in to let him know about anything. From his tone it seemed he was worried about her and maybe even missed her. Roy got close to very few people, so if he was worried about someone she must have been special. Not special like a significant other, but special like a friend.

            I was working on a late shift and when there were slow points Angeline and I would end up texting off and on and I'd text a few other people like Sam and Luke, two of the people in the same gang as Devlin. My brother might not want anything to do with me, but I'm not going to leave him to his own devices or even trust Demeter to keep him in check. The day that Devlin snaps the only person who might have a chance against him is me and that's because we spent hours sparring in the basement when we were kids. Just before we hit puberty we had to stop sparring in the basement. He thinks it's because he's a shifter and was coming into his power and mom didn't want him hurting me after I'd just gotten out of the hospital, but it wasn't that. It had nothing to do with him being a shifter.

            It had everything to do with me turning into a werewolf.

When nightmares have you in that tight of a grasp it's terrifying when you finally do wake up.

Chapter 6: My Job

            Devlin, we have a Situation. Demeter said, locking his office door.

            What kind of situation?

            You remember that fox I won? The shifter?

            Yeah, you said you were going to be gone for a few days to claim your prize in a mating. By the lack of new smell on you Im guessing you got interrupted.

            Not in a nice way, either. Somehow a female human got into the house while I was in the midst of courting and the fox escaped. So now I have to go searching for her.

            Why are you searching for her instead of your fox?

            Because the woman saw things she shouldnt have and now shes going to pay for it. You know how it works, Devlin.

            So whos going to take over lead while youre searching if you have to leave the area?

            I guess itll be you. Now, I also have a job for you. He fished a picture out of his desk drawer and put it face down on the top, sliding it towards me. This is your target. Your job is going to be unlike any other youve had before. The picture here is when shes human. All I want you to do is torment her. Do not touch her, do not hurt her physically. You are to make her life a mental hell so much so that shes afraid to go to sleep at night. You are doing psychological torture. Is that understood?

            I nodded and reached for the picture. Demeter smacked my hand. You do not look at this picture until Ive left. He laid another picture on the desk, this time face up. This is the one Ill be going after. I need you to go to her house and make sure she leaves town. I dont want anyone in our territory to know anything about what our gang really is. It wouldnt make it safe.

            But were stronger than anything that could ever- I stopped when he smacked me.

            Dont be an idiot! And dont get cocky. Just because you and I are strong doesnt mean everyone in the gang is. Sam wouldnt hurt a butterfly and Lucian is more concerned with making sure Sam is safe. Flint would just as soon set fire to his own grandmother than an enemy and I have proof of that. Do your job, keep the gang safe, and no matter how long Im gone do not try and follow me. Is that understood? Am I clear enough?

            I nodded to him. Dont follow you, make sure the face up picture leaves town, keep everyone safe, make sure things dont go to hell, Im temporarily in charge, and psychologically torture the fox whose picture is face down but only psychologically meaning no touch. Am I allowed to be seen?

            I dont think youll be able to avoid it with her.

            And the other thing you said was not to look at that picture until you were gone. I grabbed the picture that was face up and walked to his door. Leave the picture on my bed on your way out.

            He nodded. Under no circumstances are you to let your brother know anything thats going on.

            You act like hes still a big part of my life and that hes still in the gang. Why is that?

            He does record keeping. All the paperwork. Its something he and I agreed upon a long time ago among other things. I act like hes still a big part of your life because I know he keeps in touch with you in some ways.

            I nodded, rolling my eyes. Im off for my mission. I need to get some movement anyway. Feels like I havent had a good workout since the last hunt.

            Because you havent, you lazy pup. Here, youll need this. Its a piece of the womans clothing. Tore off when she got away from me. Use it to track her.

            Ill add working out more to my list of things to do while youre away. I said. He nodded.

            I wonder what has him this way. Hes only this skittish is something major is happening and Ive never seen him this nervous. What does Duval have to do with any of this? And why did Demeter bring up how weak the others are? This doesnt add up. I had thoughts running through my head as I committed the picture to memory before shifting and running, the shred of clothing in my mouth to keep the job at hand in my head.

BBY Ch.6
Oh Devlin and Demeter. Remember Demeter? Big guy, female name, I hate his guts, traumatized multiple characters...
