Changkhyun is your typical teenager. He loves sneaking out to parties, getting drunk, the usual. He never sleeps around though, that was something he just refused to do no matter how drunk he got. No one knew the real him. He built up this image of himself because he secretly was an alpha of a pack of werewolves. Being a pure blooded werewolf meant that he didn't get to choose his mate. His mate would find him, and his pure blood powers would finally awaken.
___ is new to town, and new to the school. They are instantly drawn to Changkhyun, but Chankhyun takes no notice of them. ___ suspects that something is up with Changkhyun when something in Changkhyun changes and suddenly he stops going to parties and gets his act together. Little did they know that they were actually Changkhyun's mate, and Chankhyun's pure blood power finally awakens.
What is Changkhyun's pure blood power you ask? He isn't quite sure himself. He just felt a click in his mind and he instantly knew. A dark energy that could destroy everything in its path if not under control. Changkhyun actually left school for a week to get his powers in control before coming back to school with a more reserved personality. He was afraid to hurt anyone, but he wanted to find his mate. ___ notices this new change, and decides, regardless of their better judgment, to try and talk with Changkhyun, become friends even.
What happens when Changkhyun finally reveals to ___ about what they were after he realized they were his mate? Will ___ accept it and help Changkhyun get a grip on his powers? Or will they leave him and let Changkhyun deal with it himself?

When Changkhyun got back to the house with Minhyuk, Shownu was there in the livingroom with a stern look on his face. It softened slightly when seeing their youngest but everyone could tell he was going to give an alpha's talk. Something like this was only reserved for when something serious came up, and judging from Shownu's expression it was really serious.
"I know you haven't been noticed, I had a talk with the new judge," said Shownu once everyone was settled around the kitchen table while Changkhyun and Minhyuk were working on homework. "However, this is getting serious, if there really is a new pack out there we'll see them soon," he said.
"What do you suppose we do about it?" Asked Changkhyun as he looked up from his work. "Continue like normal, if this is a werewolf pack they stepped in the wrong territory," said Shownu. "Apparently there's a missing hiker out there," he said. "If they're still alive I need you to find them Minhyuk," he said. Minhyuk nodded. "I'll do my best," he said. "Wonho, you're going with him," said Shownu. "Got it," said Wonho as he nodded.
Changkhyun got a text from Cole, saying there was a party that night at his place. "A party huh?" He asked as he looked up at Shownu. "Go," said Shownu. "Maybe you can find some new "friends," he said. "And for the love of god, don't get black out drunk this time," he added. Changkhyun snorts before nodding as he finished his work before going to change for the party.
"A reputation to keep is a reputation to keep then," mumbled Changkhyun as he sat in his jeep after getting dressed for the party. He watched as Minhyuk and Wonho headed out into the forest to change and go find this missing hiker before starting the jeep and backing out of the driveway before driving off, heading to the party.
Alice's phone buzzed to life as she carefully backed out of her parking space. The bright screen blinked out a message from another girl on the track team. Today's practice had left her warm and covered in a thin layer of sweat. The text message asked if she wanted to go see a movie with a few of the other girls on the team. Quickly she taps out her answer and enters the flow of traffic. There was a gap between her and Changkhyun now, and she needed to do something, anything, to get her mind off of him. Alice's blood chilled as she thought about him sitting alone, his black hair slowly greying and his flawless face aging. Why did she care? She owed him nothing, she didn't even know him. Swallowing around a lump in her throat.
Alice's thumb trails over his name in her phone, tempted to tack out a message to him. Chewing her lip, she somehow resists and tosses her phone in the passenger side. Why was this so hard? Was she really that easy? Once at home she showers quickly and dresses for her night out. Outside of her window she could hear the distant yips of wolves and her mind floated back to him. Was he out there running with his pack? She wondered what that would feel like, turning into a completely different form and charging through the forest unbridled.
Changkhyun was indifferent about all the rumors, not wanting to give his take in everything unlike before. Going to class just felt like clockwork now, and he dismissed all the rumors about him getting in trouble and having to be on house arrest.
When it came time to be in the class with Alice Changkhyun and Minhyuk were running late. A fight had broke out between Jake and Cole and two other people and Changkhyun went to defend them because he couldn't see his two best human friends get beat up like that. Minhyuk managed to keep them from getting in trouble, changing everyone's thoughts to not involve them in the fight.
They rushed into class just behind the teacher, going to sit down at the usual table with Alice. There was a nervous energy coming off of Minhyuk and Changkhyun, more due to the fight but other than that they were both ready for the presentation.
The presentation went well, and Changkhyun wasn't nervous at all during it. He had practiced the presentation in front of his packmates until they deemed him ready for it. Minhyuk kept his expression neutral, but spoke in a friendly tone, making a sort of game out of it. Minhyuk would be manipulating the grade like usual, but not by much. He already knew they passed, judging from the teacher's thoughts.
After school Changkhyun finally checked his phone to see a text from Shownu. Apparently he was called into the courthouse to speak with the new judge about this wolf pack problem. "We were noticed it seems," said Changkhyun as he sat in the driver's seat of his jeep. "It can't be us," said Minhyuk as he sat in the passenger seat. "If it was us then I think they would've said something sooner," he said.
"We're too careful in our runs to even get noticed, a new pack must've moved in without us noticing," said Changkhyun as he put his phone on the dock before starting the jeep and backing out of his parking spot. He then drove off, going to get food before heading home. "It would seem so," said Minhyuk.
"I don't know what to say about this wolf pack," said Shownu as he shrugged. "I understand the concern since it's a small town surrounded by forest but honestly the wolves haven't done anything," he said. "If there is indeed a missing hiker out there then my adopted son, my nephew and my brothers can help find them," he said.
It felt as though her entire day revolved around her history class. That every waking moment she had was spent sitting in the same boring bright desk staring at the classroom door waiting for him. Somehow she knew he would waltz in like nothing happened, maybe answer a few questions with well rehearsed lies and then take his seat. Would he take his seat on the opposite side of the room or would he join Minhyuk and her? Huffing, she turns away from the doorframe and starts tracing her usual lazy circles on her paper. She needed something else to get him off her mind. The night before had been hell sleeping, her mind just wouldn't shut up. She wanted to know what he would say to defend his absence. She felt like she was part of a secret society, carrying around a secret that wasn't hers. Speaking that secret aloud would get her committed, or worse laughed at. No one wanted to talk to the crazy girl that believed teenagers turned into wolves.
Rumors passed from mouth to mouth like legends. She keeps one ear on the whispers and her eyes trained on her paper. She learns that one of the more popular girls is accused of sleeping with the football star at a party. Changkyun's name was spoken several times, and then it was on to homework, hated teachers, and who won a fight. Alice wanted to be in the middle of it all. A deep longing to be the source of the rumors filled her chest and the lines of her circles deepened. Sauntering into the room, the teacher calls attention like normal and begins reading off of her clipboard the prestation order. Pulling out her notecards, Alice skims through the facts she had written down before scanning the room.
Maybe he was a bit harsh, but Minhyuk was being rather depressed about this situation. Minhyuk's mate had rejected him after learning about everything. He didn't want it to happen to Changkhyun, and everyone could see that. Changkhyun wondered when Shownu was coming back, needing some advice from the oldest in their pack as he went to bed that night, his thoughts somewhere else, making sleep almost impossible.
The next morning Minhyuk drove them to school, the both of them sitting in silence. "Are you okay Minhyuk?" Changkhyun finally asked as they sat in Changkhyun's parking spot. "I'll be alright," said Minhyuk. "I can't keep dwelling on stuff that happened in the past," he said. "You're lucky you got something that simple as a power," said Changkhyun as he got out of the jeep. Minhyuk hummed, getting out after Changkhyun. They went into the school, with Changkhyun handing the doctor's note to the office secretary before going to hang in a somewhat secluded spot.
Word got around quickly about their resident party goer's return, everyone wondering what had happened to him.
Shaking her head, Alice turns and starts back toward the house. Dry leaves and twigs crunch and snap under her shoes as she picks her way along the path. He was right. She hadn't seen half of what he had, but that didn't really mean anything. He needed to let the past go if he was going to move forward. As for his part of the homework, she really didn't care about that either. Any concern expressed on her part about his grade was more about him being presenting with them. Sighing again, she wondered how her perfect year had gotten so complicated so quickly. As for him moving, she wasn't sure if she could miss someone she didn't know. The connection between the two of them just wasn't there. Also it occurred to her that he would rather make assumptions than educate her or talk about himself.
Blowing hot breath through her nose, she marches up the porch steps, gathers her homework, and returns to her room. Alice's room had become her sanctuary. Sitting at a mahogany desk, she finishes her homework for the night and gets ready for bed. Part of her dreaded the day to come. As she laid awake staring at her ceiling, she wasn't sure if it was because she would have to see him or if it was because she just didn't want to go.
They came upon the cliff, which was Changkhyun's favorite spot to chill, spotting Alice standing by the edge. Somehow he wasn't surprised that she'd be here, during one of Wonho's runs he had spotted her just standing there, staring into space. He decided to head home, letting Kihyun continue the run on his own before coming back in human form after he was dressed to see her still standing by the cliff.
"It's a nice day isn't it?" Asked Changkhyun, starting up the conversation first. Around her, Changkhyun felt calm, like he didn't have his power. He felt the most [i human] around her, and that was one of the very few perks he could associate with her. Not that he'd admit that out loud. His pure blooded self meant that he was never truly human in the first place. A literal wolf in sheep's clothing kind of thing if you will.
"By the way, whatever you know about my kind, forget about it," he said, an icy tone to his voice now. "If it were the case that mates would be nothing but pets to us, then Minhyuk and Hyungwon's mates would still be here, and [i alive]," he said. He stared out at the water, just letting the soft breeze blow through his hair. "Humans are complicated creatures," he said suddenly, turning to see Kihyun coming back over to them and sitting down, still in his wolf form.
"You're lucky, you know, not to experience the things that I personally have seen," Changkhyun said suddenly. "How much longer can I keep this charade up I wonder? Before we have to move again," he said. Kihyun snorts, bumping Changkhyun with his snout. "I guess it's time then," mumbled Changkhyun as he turned to Alice.
"I'll be back in class tomorrow, I've already finished my side of the project, I wasn't just slacking off at home you know," he said. "I have quite the reputation to keep," he said. "I best be getting back then," he said, starting the walk home with Kihyun following after him.
"Did I take it to far?" Asked Changkhyun as he walked with Kihyun. Kihyun shook his head no. "I guess not huh?" Asked Changkhyun. "Well, let's get some dinner then," he said, entering the house with Kihyun going to change and join the others for dinner after putting on some clothes. Changkhyun went to see how Shownu was faring before joining the others for dinner, sitting with Minhyuk who was keeping to himself again, not wanting to project his thoughts.
A light breeze ruffles the edge of her homework. She tucks a stray strand of hair behind her ear and chews the end of her pencil. Alice chose to do her homework outside in the bright fall colors and the rare sunlight. Carefully she reread the assignments directions and swirls her pencil centimeters above the paper. She knew the answers, but how to word them?
Tucking her leg under her she adjusts her position on the flowered cushion tied to the patio chair. The table she diligently works on is glass and sparkling. The sun feels warm on her skin as she pencils another answer. Her black hair reveals brown streaks normally hidden by clouds. Several minutes pass before she finally leans back, stretches, and sighs. For some reason she couldn't force herself to continue. Standing she starts toward the forest. In the last week she felt the thick shadows, changing colors, and soft undergrowth call to her. Bright yellow and orange leaves swirl around her and dance to the ground, only to be swept away by the very breeze that made them fall. Reaching up she catches a passing leaf between her fingers of her right hand. The leaf is a bright orange on its way to brown. Eventually the leaf would meet its siblings on the ground and lose its bright color. The leaf would disappear amongst the others.Gently she turns it in a slow circle. Would that happen to her? Would she accept him and just become one of them? She didn't know much about wolf life, but the books she had read protrayrd the mates of wolves as domestic slaves that cleaned house and raised pups. Alice couldn't imagine herself slaving over a hot stove for hours, cooking enough food to feed an army, just to have yo do the dishes afterward. Let alone she wasn't sure if she was ready for 'the' relationship. The relationship that was the last. There were still so many things she wanted to do, to experience and she couldn't see herself doing those things with Changhyun, but what if she was his one and only. By refusing him she was altering his life, possibly limiting and changing the pack forever.
Alice's mind continues to toil over itself as she approaches the cliffside. Below the waves crash against the rocks, covering the flat parts with sea foam. Sea birds squwalled above her head and flew in large circles. Picking a large rock, she resolves to let her mind figure it out listening to the water on the rocks.
“I think I’m ready to return to school tomorrow,” Changkhyun said suddenly. “I don’t know if I’ll be alright, but I have to right?” He asked. Minhyuk hummed, nodding. “Will you be alright then?” He asked. “I have you there don’t I?” Asked Changkhyun.
“We’ll be here when you get back,” said Kihyun. “Hyungwon has to go back and finish his work anyway,” he said. “Right,” said Changkhyun as he sighed, leaning back in his chair. “We have this stupid project to do,” he grumbled.
After catching up in all his classes and making sure he had his part of the project done Changkhyun went running again. He needed to clear his head, and swore to be back before dinner. He missed those days, before his power activated. He could be as normal as could be but now he had to worry about his power, and even if Alice did end up not wanting to be with him he still had his pack. At least he still had their support in things.
He was soon joined by Kihyun in his run, the two of them running in comfortable silence. Kihyun felt the most comfortable in his wolf form, and more often than not Changkhyun let him run with him.
Scoffing, Alice watched him leave. After class was over she returned to her locker to find Emma waiting for her. Since distancing herself from anything having to do with him she found Emma to be a quick friend. As they walked to their next class together they chatted idly about homework and books. Alice faked interest as they talked. Maybe she was being selfish. Though could anyone blame her? Looking around there seemed to be Changkyun's name on everyone's lips. This kind of absence was unusual for him. Not that Alice would know, she didn't even know him personally. Emma had gotten quiet after a few minutes, noticing that Alice's heart wasn't into the topic.
Safely in her next class, Alice waited for the long day to end. So far she hadn't made any progress on getting into the popular crowd, though she was starting to learn their names and make a few friends. As she draws lazy circles on the edge of her notebook, she notes that there seemed to be heavy blanket hanging over everyone's heads. Part of her wondered if the blanket was caused by him. He was a part of the popular party crowd. A lot of people knew him, but she doubted they knew the real him. Hell, she didn't even know the real him and she was supposed to be his mate. Granted she didn't give him a chance. Chewing the inside of her lip, she mentally kicked herself.
"I'll be surprised if he wants to even talk to me." She whispers aloud to herself, The circles she traced got darker on the paper and she wondered what it all meant.
Minhyuk was minding his own business, keeping his thoughts to himself. His expression didn't betray his inner turmoils as he was half listening to the teacher.
He turned to Alice when she asked the question with an eyebrow raised. "Soon," he said. "Surprisingly enough, he's done fine on his own, it helps, at least to have someone to help," he said. He didn't mean to sound like he was blaming her for his absence, but he had enough of having to deal with the two being separated.
[i Look], he said, keeping his power focused on her to not alarm the other humans in the room as he doodled in his notebook. [i I know you feel something, I can see all your thoughts], he said. [i I'm not going to push this anymore than I have to but], he said.
"The funny thing is, he's not alone either," he said out loud with a humorless chuckle. "It's a repeat of history, it happened to me, it's happening to him," he said, getting up and asking to be excused. Once he was allowed to he left the classroom, not returning until class was over, grabbing his things and heading out, skipping the rest of his classes to go home and cool off.
Minhyuk wanted to do [i something] but he can't do anything until Changkhyun made the decision in the matter. Granted, having to listen to the youngest in their pack was annoying as all hell but he knew that in the end Changkhyun was a good alpha regardless. He got home to find Changkhyun and his betas working on some work for his other classes and went to join them, telling Changkhyun about what had happened that day.
The first week after learning about them passed faster than she expected. Track practice started, which helped. Though with her running shoes laced tightly on her feet, her mind couldn't help but wander away. Part of her wondered what happened to him. Minkhyuk wouldn't answer anyone's questions about him. Alice avoided anyone having to do with either one of them. When they were forced to work together in class Alice kept the conversations strictly on their topic. Now she understood their amusement when choosing wolf attacks to research. Tapping her notecards impatiently on her desk, Alice watches students file in before the tardy bell. Minkhyuk sat across from her as for the last week they had been working in their groups. Straightening in her seat she waits for the teacher to begin teaching or to give them instructions.
School had gotten harder, longer somehow. Alice didn't think it was because of the overwhelming amount of homework or having to balance track, but she couldn't quite put a finger on it. Calling the students' attention, the teacher holds up a dark clipboard well scribbled on.
"Today we're signing up for presentation orders. If one of your partners or yourself is absent the day of the presentation, the missing student will receive a zero. The other group members will be graded individually and on effort put into the presentation." The grey haired woman's voice faded away from Alice's mind. When they had first gotten the assignment, she memorized the rubric and the "rules"; as she called them. Eventually the clipboard was passed around to them.
"When will he be coming back?" Alice asked, watching Minhyuk's face. This was the first time she mentioned him since knowing. Her question was more of an attempt to be polite and save his grade rather than a hope to see him. Though her heart started beating a little faster at the thought of him. For the last week she had been playing the hardest game of tug-of-war with herself. Endless questions of what if, what could be, and what would happen, kept her awake at night. Heavy bags under her eyes looked like bruises and her eyes didn't sparkle as much as they used to.
“She’ll be back,” said Minhyuk. “That wasn’t a direct rejection,” he said. “She may have said those things but deep down she knows it’s true,” he said, sighing as he got a text pinged to his phone. He went to see who it was from and looked slightly relieved. “Hyungwon’s on his way home?” Asked Wonho. “Yep,” said Minhyuk. “Good, Changkhyun needs the break,” said Kihyun.
“A week, we’ll give her a week for her to decide to approach us again,” said Minhyuk. “That’s a good idea,” said Changkhyun as he came downstairs. “I need to work with my power in the mean time,” he said. “It’s funny how you have a dark energy as your power while Hyungwon’s power is this light energy,” said Minhyuk. “We both do the same thing though,” said Changkhyun as he scratched the back of his head.
“I’ll get Shownu to get a doctor’s note for you so you’ll be excused from classes,” said Minhyuk. “I’ll work on the group project while we’re out too,” said Changkhyun. “Don’t have to,” said Minhyuk. “I’ll pull our end of the project, I don’t think Alice will be a problem,” he said.
Changkhyun was excused from his classes for a week, which proved to work, as Hyungwon had indeed come around to help him at least have him in control of his power. “We have basically the same power, that’s just weird,” said Hyungwon. “Yeah,” said Changkhyun.
Minhyuk pitched in on working on the project like nothing was going on, continuing like he [i didn’t] just reveal to a human about their pack. He figured that Changkhyun’s absense was having some sort of effect on her, as the other students were wondering where their resident party goer went.
It was another day at school, and Minhyuk went to school like normal. Training had been going well for Changkhyun but he didn’t want to return to school in case something happened during class. Minhyuk avoided all questions about Changkhyun, just going through his classes like normal.
Shock still controlled Alice, though she could breathe a little better. Struggling to her feet, she managed to compose herself better than before. Taking several deep breathes, she waits for her nerves to strengthen before attempting to speak.
"So, you're all werewolves, or whatever?" She asked, watching them carefully. She wasn't sure if anyone of the others were going to randomly break out in fur. This was something straight from a movie, or a book she used to read in junior high school. A magical part of her world had been discovered and she couldn't quite believe it.
"And you think I'm his mate?" She finished. Clenching her fists, she shakes her head. There was no way in hell that some guy she barely knew was going to tell her who to love; or mate with. Shaking her head, she starts for the door. High school was supposed to be perfect. A complete and total rebranding for her, and werewolves were no where in the plan. All she wanted was to be a normal teenager, the type of girl that went to parties and stayed out late. The one that everyone knew and the one that was always laughing. Outrage fills her veins as she pictures her chances of being prom queen slipping through her fingers.
"I don't care what I'm supposed to be, and I don't care how scared you are. I'm just a normal teenaged girl. Wolves, of any kind, do not belong anywhere near me." With that she leaves the house, leaves the too perfect boy behind her.
James greets her with a worried look as she walks into the kitchen. Since moving in, the kitchen has turned into neutral ground for them. A little piece of no man's land where they can eat in either total silence or awkwardly chat about their day. Usually James filled the silence with a long boring speech about doing the right thing or not being an idiot teenager. Today he waited for her as she opened the refrigerator, closed it, and reopened it. Alice's mind was tripping over itself, clawing at scientific explanations, and impossible possibilities. James pulled her from her thoughts by asking her friends.
"I don't know, but they said he'll be fine." With that she retreated upstairs, her stomach empty, but her mind free to think and wonder.
Minhyuk expected a different reaction, maybe her running out of the house screaming. He shook his head and went to grab the clothes before going into a different room to change and put on the clothes. He came back in human form once he was dressed, rolling his shoulders some.
"You see," he started. "Changkhyun, he- he was born a werewolf," he said. "When a pure blood, those who were born werewolves, finds their mates their power activates," he said. "I think you're his mate," he said. "But I'm not sure," he said.
"I can read minds, but I can also see what mental powers people have," he said. "Changkhyun's... His scares me," he said. "But you may be what can help him control it," he said.
