“Where are we going?” Alfie shouted as I ran as fast as I could with him over my shoulder.
“As far from them as we can get,” I shouted back.
I ran to what I could only guess as the furthest point of the island from where we started.
“Here,” I set Alfie down gently. “Take off your shirt,”
“What?” he mocked embarrassment and put his arms over his chest. “Why?”
“I need to look at your wound so hurry up about it,” I didn’t laugh at his joking. I put my hand on my hip and looked at him with as much authority as I could muster.
“Fine,” he began lifting his short over his head when he winced and cried out in pain.
He pushed through however and I took his shirt from him.
“Sit on the ground,” I instructed.
I held his hand and guided him down where I sat on my heels behind him.
I examined the cut, following it from the top of his shoulder blade down to his elbow.
“Which on did this?” I growled defensively.
“The Captain,” he mumbled.
“Hook,” I seethed. “I’ll destroy him for this,”
“Why are you so protective of me?” he asked quietly.
“You were the first lost boy to accept me,” I said as I began wiping blood from his back with his shirt.
“Ow!” he jumped a little when I pressed down too hard on the edge of his cut.
“Sorry!” I splayed my hand out and took a deep breath.
“What are you doing?” he asked.
“Something my old alpha taught me,” I felt the stinging in my hand and forearm as my veins turned black. “I can take your pain. At least some of it,”
He turned around as best he could to see for himself.
“Whoa,” his eyes widened as think black veins spread up my arm. “That feels so much better,”
“What the- HEY!” a voice behind my broke my concentration and shocked me into a defensive crounch in front of Alfie.
It was Felix.
“What were you doing to him?” he shouted as he ran at us. He held his club high over his head then brought it down hard on my shoulder.
I cried out as I felt my arm pop out of it’s socket and my skin tear from the harsh contact of the club.
“Y/N!” Alfie yelled and held his arm out to stop Felix. “SHE WAS HELPING ME YOU DOLT!”
Felix looked from Alfie to me to his club in shock.
“I’m sorry,” he knelt down and tried to reach for me but on instinct I growled at him.
“I’ll be fine,” I snapped.
I stood up and put my shoulder against the nearest tree, I jolted forward and felt the bones grind against each other as I put my arm back in place.
“How in hell?” Felix breathed.
“I’m not human remember?” I scowled at him.
He looked at me with wide eyes as he watched the wound on my shoulder close over in seconds.
“What was the black stuff I saw on your hand?” he asked me, pointing to Alfie.
“I was taking his pain,” I grumbled. “Y’see, despite your treatment of me, I’m actually a decent person. Although you have no idea what that means,”
I shrugged off my jacket and handed it to Alfie.
“Thanks,” he smiled at me as I heard voices in the trees.
“Someone’s here,” I stood protectively in front of Alfie but eased off when I heard Pan’s familiar laugh.
“Why’d you take off so quickly?” He called as he and most of the other lost boys came into view. “You missed all the fun,”
“I’m sorry for trying to bite you,” I looked at the ground sheepishly.
“Don’t worry about it,” he shrugged. “You think none of these idiots have ever had a go at me or one another? Besides I should’ve known better than to touch you when you were like that. Are you lot okay?”
“They’re fine,” Felix piped up. “Although I took a swing at her ‘cause I thought she was hurting the kid,”
“What do you mean?” Pan asked.
“She had these black veins comin’ up her arm when she touched him,” Felix attempted to explain.
Pan looked between me and Alfie waiting for a better explanation.
“I can take pain from others,” I said. “I can’t heal them but I can stop them from feeling it. For a time. Look-“
I turned and punched Felix in the nose.
He flew back from the force of my strength. I leant over him and put my hand on his cheek.
I heard gasps and whispers as the black veins flowed up my arm once again. It stung quite a bit.
“I got you good didn’t I?” I laughed at Felix. “That’s payback for my shoulder,”
I stood with a triumphant grin and looked at the others.
Pan’s face was riddled with surprise. But he eventually smirked back.
“Alright everyone!” he called. “Back to camp. The pirates are gone but our new comer will need a feed so lets head back. Who’s turn is it to cook?”
A few boys called out Curly who grumbled in response.
I offered my hand to Felix, who to my surprise, took it with a small smile. I’d half expected him to slap it away and try to fight me but he seemed fine with me socking him in the face.
“You good to walk on your own this time Alfie?” I asked with a giggle.
“It wasn’t my choice for you to carry me this whole way,” he laughed back. “The pirate got my arm not my legs,”
I laughed then ran ahead after Pan.
“Who’s the new comer?” I asked.
“The pirate girl,”
He said as if it were obvious. “She was a stow away on the ship and wasn’t
treated the best so I offered her a place here,”
“Amity?” I almost stopped in my tracks but I kept going. “Where is she?”
“Getting a tour of camp from the other boys,” he said.
“I didn’t get a tour,” I grumbled.
“She also isn’t a mystical human-wolf hybrid that is stronger than all my boys and heals miraculously within seconds of obtaining a fresh wound who kicked me to the ground the second I met her,” he gave me a knowing look and I couldn’t help but laugh. “You never did apologise for that by the way,”
“Did you say sorry for knocking me out?” I retaliated with raised eyebrows.
“Well- no. But we aren’t talking about that right now,” he chuckled. “Hey are you any good at making clothes?”
“Why?” I looked at
him sideways as we walked along. “Because I’m a girl I’ve obviously had
experience being a seamstress?”
“No,” he stumbled a little in surprise of my accusation, clearly missing the sarcasm. “None of these boys know who to and I figured Amity would be more comfortable with a girl fitting her for less-pirate-ish clothes. That’s all,”
“I was teasing you,” I elbowed him in the ribs with a laugh. “I have no experience making clothes from scratch but I’m sure I could whip up something suitable,”
We made it back to camp as the sun was just setting.
I saw the boys by my tent, setting up one just beside it.
“Is that tent for Amity?” I asked the tallest one, Ben.
“Yeah,” he said plainly. “We figured since all the boys are over there, you girls can have this area,”
“Cool,” I smiled.
“Thanks. Where is she by the way?”
“She went to have a bath or something,” he shrugged.
I nodded and walked away, sniffing the air to find Amity’s scent.
I found it and followed it away from camp until I could hear her singing.
“Amity?” I called.
“Over here,” she called back.
I followed her voice and came to a small clearing where she sat with her feet in a small pond. Her clothes neatly folded beside her.
“Ah!” I covered my eyes and turned away. “Sorry!”
“It’s fine,” she laughed.
“Why are you embarrassed by this? You’re a girl,”
“She’s gay!” one of the boys accidentally revealed his hiding place by the edge of the clearing.
Amity covered herself as I stormed over to the boys.
There were 3 of them.
“Okay,” I picked up the closest to my by his shirt collar. “One, What the hell do you think you’re doing? And two, how do you know that about me? Did Pan tell you?”
“N-n-no!” he stammered. “We heard him tell Felix,”
“Oh great so Felix knows too,” I dropped the boy and they all scrambled to their feet. “I’m going to tell Pan that you were spying on the new girl. You guys are aware how creepy that is right?”
“We weren’t spying on her,” One of the others piped up. “We were following you,”
Suddenly, Amity was by my side in her loose fitting blouse and undershorts.
“Why were you following her?” she asked.
“We were trynna see if she’d change again,” the boy i’d held said sheepishly.
“Well if you don’t fuck off right now, she’s going to have to turn in order to stop me from ripping your ears off,” Amity smiled darkly. “I don’t care whichof us your were spying on,”
The three boys immediately ran off, stumbling over eachother as they tried tog et away.
I looked at Amity out the corner of my eye. “Were you serious about ripping their ears off?”
“Gods no,” she laughed. “I’ve never even been in a proper fight with anyone,”
I laughed back and played with my hair to hide my blush.
“Were theboys telling the truth?” she suddenly asked, her tone cautious.
“About what?” I loked at her confused.
“About you being gay?” she looked at me nervously.
“Uh, yeah,” I laughed awkwardly. “Does that bother you?”
“Absolutely not,” she smiled at me. “I’m not picky when it comes to who I uh… spend my time with. So it’s wouldn’t be my place to judge anyone for something i do myself,”
“So you likey the ladies?” I gave a goofy smile and wiggled my eyebrows, making her laugh.
“yes I guess you can put it that way,” she giggled.
She walked back to the little pond and took off her shirt again, folding it neatly before putting it on the ground.
“Do you want to join me?” she asked, looking at me over her shoulder.
I looked around awkwardly, trying not to ovbiously look at her boyd, even though I wasn’t looking at her body.
“I don’t mind,” she laughed. “You can come in if you want. You don’t have to though,”
I smiled at her shyly, then shrigged and walked over, pulling my shirt over my head as I did.
“That’s an interesting garment,” she said, looking directly at my chest.
I looked down at my purple bra that was slightly padded and lacy.
“I suppose it would be to you,” I mummbled. “They’re quite common where I’m from. It’s for support,”
I made a grabbing motion over my chest making Amity laugh.
“So it’s like a little corset?” she asked.
“So I’m still able to breathe,” I kicked off my shoes and shimmied out of my jeans.
I dipped my foot in the water and sighed when i felt how warm it was.
“It’s cool to have another girl here,” I mummbled with a msile.
Amity and I had sat by the pond for a little longer, literally chatting and braiding eachothers hair.
Then we walked together to our neighbouring tents and said goodnight.
I’d been half asleep for a few hours when I heard someone whispering my name.
“Y/n?” the voice hissed.
“Amity?” I whispered back. “What’s wrong?”
“I can’t sleep,” her voice sounded so small.
“Why not?” I hissed back.
“I dunno,” she sounded hesitant. “Hey Y/N?”
“Yeah?” I propped myself up on my elbows.
“Can I come sleep in there with you?” I could here her heart pounding. She was either nervous to ask me, or truely afraid to sleep out here by herself.
“yeah sure,” I sat up and so I could open my tent for her.
I pulled my blanket around me as I heard her making her way out of her tent. When I heard her leave her tent I got up and held open the tent flap for her.
When I saw her, my heart stopped.
The look of pure fear in her eyes made me want to cry.
“C'mon,” I smiled and welcomed her inside.
I shut my tent and guided her back to my little nest/bed in the back corner of my tent.
“My bed isn’t queen sized but it can easily fir the two of us,” I smiled as she sat down on the edge. “Do you have a side preference?”
She shooked head sleepily and moved to the far side so i could lay down next to her.
I smiled climbed in beside her and lay down after sacrificing one of my 3 pillows for her.
We didn’t say anything else. We both just closed our eyes. i listened to her breathing fall into a steady rythum as she fell asleep. Then i followed suit and shut down for the night.
