She could hear Nathan slamming his body into the door once more. “Nathan,” she said but the world went black. She woke up cold, wet, and in the dark, leaning against the wall. By the smell, she was sure she was in the same place. She opened her magic, and found the door they came through was heavily warded, and they were now not alone. Her magic found Nathan, to her right. Someone had come in after they were unconscious and moved them off the stairs. “Nathan,” she whispered crawling through the cold, stale water looking for him. Her head thumped from the drug, and she wasn’t sure her legs would let her stand.
“Wha-,” he said. “Shit. Leslie don’t move.”
“There is a werebear in here with us, isn’t there?” she asked in a frightened whisper. She had felt animalistic need coming from the other down there with them. He moved in the water toward her. She could feel him, and it gave her some comfort but not much.
“It’s a cub. He’s going to change. The full moon is in a few days. There is fresh blood, and he is scared. He won’t be able to fight this.”
Her hands ran over her face, and she touched a couple cuts on her cheek. She explored her arms and felt more cuts. “Uh-oh, um, that blood is me.”
“How bad?” He moved up against her. His hands reached out and gently ran down her arms and back up. He paused at her shoulders, briefly and continued up her neck, fingers gently probing the cuts on her cheek.
“It doesn’t hurt, so it had to have been a very sharp, silver blade.”
A flood light came alive above them, probably on a timer, blinding them all briefly. They looked around, and saw the boy in the corner, naked and scared. He had dirty hair and skin, and looked too skinny for his small frame. He tried to fight off the change. But he would lose, they all did. Once the moon calls, the change happens, there is no fighting. Already the bones could be heard snapping inside his body. Nathan pulled off his shirt. Using the water, he cleaned her cuts.
“It’s going to bleed for a while.”
“I think that’s the point,” she said, nervously flicking her eyes to the young man.
He let out a moan, and his body shuddered. “It hurts!” he screamed.
“Oh crap,” Leslie whispered, grabbing onto Nathan’s arm. That electricity zapped through them. They both sucked in air at the same time. But she did not let go. And he did something that should have unnerved her, but weirdly it didn’t. He leaned in as if he was going to kiss her, but then she felt his tongue, moist and warm, lick her cut. He looked at her with those strange green eyes which were filled with curiosity.
The boy screamed behind them again. The scream turned into a roar. Nathan crawled over to the boy using his own magic to sooth the cub. He couldn’t stop him from changing, but he could control it enough so that it could take longer. He’d wear the cub out when he turned.
Welcome to the Opposite Side where monsters really do roam the night, but The Supervisors make sure that the monsters don’t get noticed by the normal humans. Meet Leslie, a Supervisor and a blood witch, one of four in California. Blood witches are said to have powers that rival gods, that’s why they were almost hunted to extinction. Leslie came into her power late, and fell in with the wrong crowd before she became a Supervisor. Nathan is king of the local werebear clan, and he has plans for the future of his pack, the other local shapeshifters, but also has his eyes set on Leslie. She is not your ordinary Blood Witch, and together they can stir up power that the world has never seen. But nothing is as it seems in the Opposite Side, and Leslie’s already different world is going to be shaken as a new case starts a chain of events that can lead to a feud war.
