Chapter 7 - Not Your Mate Anymore

We were officially moved in to the manor. Grandfather couldn't be happier with all of us being around. This was a big change for us as we are so used to pack life but Max initiated us all into his pack so we wouldn't be rogues although now our lives were in human territory.

My dad had helped some warriors settle in the town apartments and was going to start a security business with the warriors as security detail.

We had ample land around the manor so dad was going to turn some of it into training grounds for his warriors who had left the pack when he did. I'm sure more people were going to go to neighboring packs to look for new homes. This would make Blue Moon vulnerable and prone to attacks.

Max dropped us off before driving off to pick up his mother at the airport. I can't wait to see her again. She was beautiful when I was younger and I'm sure she still is.

After the maids helped me with all my things and my closet was well stocked, I decided to take a nap. Tomorrow we were going to anew school and humans have a different kind of system in their schools. The school hierarchy according to my neighbor who introduced himself as

Freddie says There are the jocks, with a mix between girls and guys which I think is cool. Then there's the cheerleaders and dancers, which were the popular kids squad that everyone bows to and some nerds, hippies and a few other popular kids who are popular because of their last name, their beauty or wealth.

Josey was so excited as we didn't have that in blue moon. Obviously we were the beta girls so popularity wasn't a problem. We just never picked on someone for having brains or being obsessed

with star wars. I mean I don't watch it but I get it. I'm obsessed with cartoons.

I woke up around 5 to get ready for dinner and go see mom about our school uniform. We had been accepted to my mom's old school.

Apparently my nana made hefty donations to the school while my mom was there and she also attended. My family has been attending the same school for decades. The headmistress also said she was a scholar with my mother and my family has about 5 generations of history there. That was pretty cool.

I freshened up and put on some shorts and my converse sneakers. My tummy made some noises signaling me to feed myself and on that note I left my room to go eat. My mom cooked and it smelled delicious!

"Oh mama it smells amazing!! I can't wait to dig in" I say to her kissing her cheek and then walking into the dining room to kiss papa and grandpa.

“Thank you Sab. Ok everyone dig in".. she said and we didn't have to be told twice! The food was so good, I had to get seconds. My Remi was a great cook. She loves being in the kitchen and sometimes I help. I don't like slaving in the kitchen as I'd call it but I'm a pretty decent cook with

Natalie and Remi's training.

We all finished eating so Cj, Josey and I cleaned the table and went in the kitchen to wash the dishes and all. Once that was done, we walked to my parents room to get our uniform for tomorrow. Mom handed them to us to go try on.

Dad was still downstairs with Grandfather as they were both enjoying a glass of whiskey and cigars. This is a trait my Grandfather taught my dad and they said when Cj turns 18, it will be something they'll all do together.

We all went to our rooms to try on our uniforms to make sure they fit.

It felt so weird thinking this is what I had to wear Monday through to Friday. I wasn't used to it and I'm sure my siblings felt the same. How would people perceive us? Would we get instant popularity just like at Blue Moon or do we have to work our way up the food chain?...

It didn't really bother Cj though. He was more excited about the robotics lab and playing lacrosse. Josey was begging me to try out for cheerleading with her but I'm more of a hide behind some food kind of girl. I guess now that we won't be training as hard since we are all human, I had to find a sport to keep fit.

I hung my uniform and decided to shower and go to bed. I'd have to wake up early tomorrow so dad can drop us off. It was going to be a long interesting day.

My alarm went off telling me it was time to get up and get ready for school. It was 5:30 AM and I wanted to kill myself for not fighting Max hard enough on getting us into his packs school. They had to attend from 9am while here humans thinks its sane to be at school at 7:30.

I get up with my eyes still closed and walk into my bathroom. I strip and jump in the shower and that wakes me up. I dry

myself. I got dressed. Idon't put on any make up as I'd like to assess how the girls are there before I go crazy. It's better to blend in than stick out because it was bad enough that I was going to be the new girl.

I walk into the kitchen to find grandfather eating breakfast alone.

I walk up to him and kiss his cheek and give him a hug. Then I dish up for myself and sit down to eat.

"Where's mom and dad?" I ask him. Wondering who cooked breakfast if mom wasn't around.

"They had an emergency. It seems a lot of the warriors arrived early this morning at the airport and your dad had to go sort out their accommodation. Remi left with him to help however she can so I'll be driving you to school.’ Grandpa says.

"Oh wow. Does this mean blue moon is without it's warriors?" I ask and grandpa nods while reading the paper.

Josey and Cj make an appearance. They take a seat and also ask about mom and dad. I answer them and we continue eating. We all finished and cleaned up then followed grandpa out the house.

I took a look at my Ferrari, missing the days of driving around in it. Sigh...

A black car drove in through the gate. It was a maybach. It stopped right at our feet. My grandfather looked at us and smiled,

"You kids didn't think I was actually going to drive you right? I have golf in 30min in a different direction" he says walking away towards his Range Rover.

The driver opens the door to let us and Cj jumps in the front passenger seat. He introduces himself as lan who will be driving us to school from now on. We greet back. Eventually we make it to school and we all look out the window.

This was no school. This place looked like a college. John Crawford Preparatory School written in golden bold letters on a brick wall.

Kids coming out if bentleys, BMW's, Mercedes Benzes. You name it.

This was probably where the president's kids went to school. It was crazy how all these kids looked put together. As if they had their lives in order.

This school was insane. lan cleared his throat to get our attention and we all looked at him.

"i'll be here at 3pm sharp. If you have any extra curricular activities, please put it in your calendar app which is linked to mine. I will then know of your school activities and when to pick you up and drop you off. I am only your chauffeur for school activities, social activities will require an additional driver which can be arranged if requested. I hope you all have a great first day." He finishes and slips out the car to open the door for me and Josey as Cj let himself out.

He drives off. Leaving us to figure this shit out on our own.

“Let's try find the office and take it from there? They should be expecting us." I say and they nod at me.

We walk into the school and immediately everyone goes quiet when they notice us walk in. Asking each other who we were, where we came from or why come to a new school in the middle of the year.

"This is when I wish I didn't have super hearing" Josey points out and we nod in agreement. This was going to be tough. People were going to whisper to each other about us and we were going to have to ignore them. Back at blue moon, if you wanted to gossip about someone you obviously send them a mind link but now these humans didn't have that.

I see a sign that says office and I lead the way. We walk in to see a lady at the front desk busy on the phone. She is a ball of insane energy on monday and Christopher's kids weren't monday people. We were all grumpy.

She hangs up and notices us standing there. She beams and jumps a little at our presence.

"You three must be the Trent kids am I right?" She asks and we nod at her.

"Oh you're all so good looking it is bat crazy. I don't know who is prettier than who." She giggles to herself.

"Alright, the headmistress will be with you shortly. Please take one of these tablets to complete a questionnaire so we can arrange your classes accordingly.” She smiles at us.

We mumble ok's and thank yous as we all go to take a seat after grabbing a tablet each. Pretty standard stuff actually. We had to jot down the subjects we did at our previous high school, the sports we played, our hobbies and interests. It also showed the classes on offer for each of us and we could choose but it will be decided according to the marks we obtained at our previous school. You had to pick two English subjects, two mathematical ones, two sciences and 2 social sciences, 2 foreign languages, Then you had to pick between music or photography, computer applications or web design, physical education or psychology, auto mechanics or nursing class, dance or dramatic arts. It was crazy how they had so many subjects to choose from but I made my decision according to my likes.

I'll take writing and speech for english, algebra and statistics for math, advanced biology and advanced physics for science, economics and world history for social studies, I'll take French and Mandarin for foreign languages as that's what I chose back at blue moon, I'll take music, web design, physical education, nursing and dance.

My sister and I had the same. We always joked around that we were twins. Cj picked anything that has to do with new age technology. Everything he had was advanced this and that.

We handed in the tablets and the reception lady went on to print our results. She smiled at us and gave us our schedules. It had all the subjects we picked. An older gorgeous woman in a power suit walked


"Sandy, any messages?" The lady asked. So that was the front desk lady's name.

"No headmistress Adams" said Sandy.

"I have these beautiful Trent kids to see you" Sandy said.

She turned to us and smiled, "ahh my new recruits. Welcome to John Crawford Preparatory School. Your family has some rich history here. Come to my office, I have a lot to tell you about your mother.” She smiles and leads us into her office.

It appears headmistress Daisy Adam's was a fan of my mother. She showed us pictures of my mom winning in track, my mother being top of her class all through both her pregnancies. Which could've been a taboo but she hid it well and only told her friends about it. We were her best kept secret. She told us all about the school and how it works. She explained our schedules and that CJ's lunch break was at 10a.m and then again at 12h30. Then me and Josey were to have breaks at 11am and again at 13h30. School ends at 3pm and then it's the extra activities that are not on the schedule. They have football, soccer, tennis, swim and track.. those were the sports that held national championships. Then there was lacrosse, wrestling and cheerleading. They haven't won a championship in 5 years.

She asked what we were interested in and we had to pick two sports to take part in. It was mandatory to make sure you get in to the college of your choice.

I chose swimming and wrestling which actually shocked her but she wrote it down saying she will run it by the coaches who will then let me know when I can try out.

Josey chose track and cheer then Cj went for lacrosse and tennis. He also said he's interested in wrestling too and if allowed, he'd like to try for that too. After we were done, she called in students from our grades and had them show us around and escort us to each and every class. Basically we had babysitters all day. How fun.

I said bye to Josey and Cj as I turned to look at the girl that was assigned to me.

"Hi my name is Lucy. Welcome to Jc Prep Sabrina" she says then taking a look at my schedule smiles and says I'm in all her classes. We could spend the day together and I can sit with her during lunch if she wants.

“Won't your friends mind? I'm the new girl which makes me an outcast" I say to her and she laughs at me.

"Don't be silly. You're a pretty girl. Pretty girls always gain instant popularity but with these subjects I don't know. You might be called a nerd” she smiles then we both laugh.

She leads the way out of the office. I wave goodbye at Sandy and she smiles at me while she's on the phone. I follow her as she shows me to my locker and I put my bags in. We had register period which was where our assigned teacher for year takes in the kids present for the day and gives us announcement for the school.

I walk in and the class goes quiet. What I noticed is my class was mainly boys. They weren't a lot. It was about 15 students including me. There was literally 5 of us girls in this class. Talk about testosterone levels on high...

Lucy walks in front of me to hand in her hall pass and my acceptance letter from the headmistress. The teacher looks at me then smiles. I was about sick of smiling now.

“Alright class. We have a new student here. Let's all show some respect while she introduces herself. Welcome, I'm Teacher Grace. I'll be your register teacher for the rest of the year. Please tell us your name, age and interests" She says to me then gesturing for me to introduce myself.

I clear my throat. "Good morning class. My name is Sabrina Trent. I am 15 years old, I'll be 16 in a month. I love outdoor activities and keeping fit. Thank you." I say looking around to see everybody was hanging onto my very word.

"What kind of outdoor activities do you do?” A girl from the front asks and I smile at her.

“[ run, I love to hike or walk in the woods. I love to exercise outside. I practice jujitsu and krav maga. Oh I'm also a car fanatic. I can't wait to drive legally". I say and the class laughs.

Teacher Grace chimes in, "Have you been doing it illegally then miss Trent?"she asks me. Oh shit .

"Oh I plead the 5th on that one” I say and the class laughs again. Teacher Grace smiles at me. I find space in between two guys. They flash their super white teeth at me and I smile back.

"Hi I'm Josh and that's Jason. We're half brothers” Josh says. I nod at them.

Classes went by quicker with J and J trying to make conversation with me.

It was time for lunch and Lucy said I'd find her at their table right in the middle. I just wanted to find Josey and see if she was fairing well.

I walk into the lunch hall and immediately spot her sitting with a bunch of cheerleaders. They were all surrounding listening to whatever she was blabbering about. Glad to know she's ok.

Now I wasn't worried about Cj. He could hold his own and even though he's a little geeky, his muscles will help him out with the ladies. I scan the room for Lucy to find her seated in the middle of the cafeteria.

Let's just say I was stuck with the fashion forward girls. They were wearing the latest designs and had the latest handbags. If I was going to fit in, I would need to go shopping immediately after school. I had no other choice but to give in and sit with Lucy and her friends. They were friendly though but I was the only one without a cartier! bracelet or an Hermes handbag.

"Hey guys?" I say to the group around me. They all look at me. "So I was thinking, where I come from, they didn't really have all these major designers so I'm thinking of revamping my entire closet. Who wants to help me?" I ask and they all light up!

I wasn't so bad at this.

After school we all had tryouts. Josey had cheer, where Cj and I had wrestling. The wrestling team was made up of 6 boys and 4 girls so if Cj and I make it, that would be 12.

When we walked in the team laughed. Obviously at me because I'm skinny. They know nothing about werewolf strength and the training I've had all my life.

"Don't worry sis, they don't know you're the strongest person here." Cj tried to comfort me. I smiled knowingly at him. He was right. They were in for a shocker.

We got to meet the coach and he let me take on his champion girl and Cj had to take on the best boy. Safe to say we made the team. Although now I'm the weird girl with crazy hidden muscles.

We went to go see Josey's tryouts and she was killing it too. The girls seemed happy with her. I guess human school wasn't so bad after all. By the end of the day, we had all tried out for the sports we wanted to play. Cj had lacrosse and wrestling. I had swimming and wrestling and Josey had track and cheer. I'm glad at some point during the day I'd be able to spend some time with my Cj.

Looking at our schedules, we weren't going to have much of a life. Which I accepted. I could just focus on school until I graduate then I try this whole love thing again. Josey on the other hand was groaning

and sad over the death of her non existent social life and no free time to spend time with her mates. I had to remind pick that she had to make them wait especially since they had a baby on the way.

Cj was excited and couldn't wait to go back to school again. Normal teenage problems.

We were going to make this work. This was our life now and boy is it different. It was definitely a change of scenery but if we stick together, we will get through it. I know we will.

You know how you're just gliding through life and everything is going smoothly so smooth to the point where you ask yourself when shit will hit the fan? We are supernatural beings and our past has to knock on our door at some point right?? Right??

Well.. no. The first year of human school was a breeze. I mean daddy had to get us tutors to make sure we did well in our subjects and we rarely had family time so dad had to command that Sunday's were family day. Josey chose Saturday as the day her mates visit her and on my Saturdays if I didn't have any sporting events, I'd visit Max and Nicole.

Bella had her baby. A girl, they named her Penelope. We made amends and she apologized for being a bitch to me. I reminded her that she was not just any bitch but a hypocritical bitch. We're not best friends but we get along. Lucy and I became really close and we would meet up for our coffee date every morning before school.

Josey became very close friends with a guy named Matt. They were inseparable. Cj got a girlfriend in his grade.. A girl named Aisha and boy was she pretty. He was just worried about meeting his mate while he was with her. They both loved geeky stuff and she was a complete klutz. Ina cute way.

Remi opened up her own restaurant called Rem. Let's just say, the wealthy, support the wealthy. It was always fully booked. Dad was always traveling for business but he made sure he's home every sunday. Grandfather was still the same old guy except he took up fishing.

We were happy. One big happy family.
