Our world is being judged and even they remain unaware.

Michelle, another young woman with an unexplainable gift, finds herself surrounded by the previously undiscovered werewolf society.  Kept prisoner for the predictions that torment her, she meekly follows orders waiting for her opportunity to run.

After witnessing Blake, her captor, grow canines, she knows he will do anything to find her.  She needs a place to hide and someone to listen to her predictions so her head doesn’t explode, but knows there’s nowhere she can hide forever, and no one who can protect her… unless she can find someone just like him.

“What are you thinking about?” Emmitt asked, his thumb trailing softly across my cheek as I became aware of the present.
My heart skipped a beat at the close contact and I struggled to breathe.
“Nothing,” I whispered.
He dropped his hand, but stayed close, his eyes searching mine.  “We all have our secrets, Michelle.”
I wanted to snort in disbelief.  What secret did Emmitt have that could possible rival the laundry basket of secrets I carried?
He continued to watch me and then frowned slightly.  “I want to show you something,” he said slowly as if just making up his mind.  “My secret.”  He moved half a step back, giving himself room to show me his forearm.  “But I don’t want it to freak you out.  I just want you to see you can share your secrets with me.  I want you to be happy here.”
I doubted it, but dutifully looked at his arms.  At first, I thought I needed to find a tiny hidden tattoo or something.  As my eyes searched, I noticed his arm hair change.  It grew longer and thicker.  Startled, my gaze flew to his.
“You can make your hair grow?”  My gaze flitted to the hair on his head.  It didn’t look any longer than it had a moment ago.
“Sort of,” he said lowering his arm.  “There’s more.”  He pulled back his lips in a parody of a huge smile.
I stared at Emmitt in horror, all my hopes crushed with the single telling revelation of his elongated teeth.  Panic bloomed.  Clutching the glass in my hand, a growling scream erupted from my throat as I drew back to throw it at him.  At the same time, I lifted a knee, clipping his groin.  He dropped like a stone before the glass touched him.
Eyes wide, I looked down at his prone form.  His eyes closed, he gritted his teeth, canines still exposed.  Panting, I tried to make myself move.  Run.  Run!  RUN!!!  It echoed in the cavern of my mind until I broke free of my paralysis.  Dropping the glass, I sprinted for the door.  I cleared the door as glass shattered and he grunted.
