~ Excerpt ~
Adamheard those words and turned to run. Outnumbered, he didn’t stand a chanceagainst three of them and knew he was dead. But he ran anyway. He could hearthe boys crashing through the trees behind him. Knowing the area helped Adam somewhat,but their ability to run faster and smell him gave them the advantage.
Hearingthe painful yell, Adam knew that one of the boys was shifting. He pushedharder, trying to figure out how the hell he was going to get himself out ofthis mess. A thought hit him and he grabbed the lowest branch and swung himselfup and into the tree. His plan was to go as high as possible. He could fightthem off if they had to hang on to the branches to keep themselves from falling,or at least he hoped.
Unfortunately,he hadn’t counted on them being able to jump quite so high. Ten feet in theair, Adam heard one of them following him up the tree. Glancing below, he sawLee scrambling not too far behind.
Leehad leapt to the branch below him and scrambled quickly to catch him. Grabbinghis foot, he gave a powerful yank and pulled Adam from the tree before he couldfight back.
Grunting,he fell out of the tree, landing flat on his back. With a whoosh, the airrushed from his lungs and he gasped to catch his breath. Staring up into thebright yellow eyes that glared down at him, Adam winced from the pain andwrinkled his nose in disgust when the saliva from the snarling snout drippedacross his cheek. Squinting, he hoped for a quick and painless death. Out ofthe corner of his eye he saw Nelson lash out with his booted foot. The first kicklanded in his ribs and he curled into a ball.
“Youshould have stayed away.” Lee circled around, raised his foot and stomped.
Anotherfoot landed with a sickening crack, his arm snapped and Adam clenched his teethto keep from yelling out in agony.
“Didn’tyour mother ever teach you not to play with your food?” His voice was strainedwith pain.
“Alwaysthe smart ass!” Nelson stepped forward and aimed a kick for the middle of his backand laughed when Adam grunted and squirmed on the ground. “Do it.” He steppedback, motioning for the wolf to move in.
Thewolf lunged. He grabbed ahold of Adam’s leg. His sharp teeth sliced through thematerial of the jeans with ease, sinking into the flesh of his thigh.
Adamfought, even though he knew it was useless. The arm that wasn’t broken punchedthe wolf in the side of the face, his other leg frantically kicking at the wirybody.
Thewolf growled and clamped his teeth down harder on Adam’s leg, then gave hishead a shake.
Screaming,tears welled in his eyes at the onslaught of pain ripping through his leg. Adamknew the wolf was going to eat him alive and the instinct to survive kicked in.He struck out with his good leg once more, trying to land at least one painfulblow.
Yelpingwhen the kick landed in his ribs, the wolf growled and moved back. He stoodwith his teeth bared, like he was giving Adam an evil grin.
“Justdo it you fucking bastard!” Adam yelled at the wolf, wanting to get this overwith. He was astounded when Patricia just stood there staring at him with tearsin her eyes. “You.” The accusation hung in the air. He couldn’t believe she wasstanding there, not doing anything to try and help him.
Thewolf turned and trotted off ahead of the group. Patricia wiped at her tears andturned reluctantly when Nelson and Lee, her two brothers, moved in front of herand motioned for her to go ahead of them into the woods.
Carl,her older brother, had really done a number on him. Adam couldn’t believe it.They were going to leave him there. With a broken arm, a chunk missing out ofhis leg and what he was sure were a few broken ribs. He would die a slow,painful death. Probably bleed out if another wild animal didn’t happen upon himfirst.
Heshould have listened to his father and stayed home during the full moon.Shaking his head at his own stupidity he tried to sit up and nearly screamed whenpain shot through his body. There was absolutely nothing he could do. Dreadingto look, he glanced down at his leg to see the blood flowing steadily. With hisgood hand, he pressed and gritted his teeth. It still oozed out around his fingers.He had to stop the flow. In the distance he heard something and turned his headto look. The blood loss was making him dizzy and he couldn’t do anything butlaugh and sag to the ground when another large wolf stepped through the trees.
