Chapter Eighteen ★ Lost

Light beamed and the dark cobwebs that tried to cling on melted away in the brightness. Everything began to come back. How I wanted to go home and how much I wanted my dad to come save me.

I let out a howl as the residue of the witch’s spell wore off and the wolf held me still. He then picked my limp body up from the ground and walked. The lizard men continued to usher hisses from the shadows but dared not to attack.

Several footsteps and clawed feet scrambled against the dirt ground. The wolf that held me continued walking away and leapt up and over the front gates. He grumbled under his breath, “Should have burned down the place back then… should’ve done it when I noticed that they were fixing up the dang place.”

The woman’s cool voice came right beside him and said, “Should’ve, would’ve, could’ve, Stephen. Those are words of the past. Let it go. You have Daniel. That is all that matters… now.”

“But, this doesn’t help Tabby.” He huffed then squeezed me closer.

She sighed then replied, “That is the past. She is no more. Let her go.”
