#Chapter 85: Mad Wolf Girl
In the blink of an eye, I went from having a giant brown werewolf trying to bite my neck to now having a thrashing and very human Lisa clawing at me with her manicured nails.
“What the fuck?!” I shouted. Enzo, who had just shifted into his own wolf form, shifted back into his human form and lunged forward, grabbing Lisa by the back of her shirt and yanking her off at me as she continued to snarl and flail her limbs like an animal.
I sat up, panting, with wide eyes.
Lisa was a werewolf?
But… Enzo had cured her!
Enzo pinned Lisa to the ground. She finally relaxed when she saw him above
her, but her eyes were feral, so wide that I could see the whites all the way around her irises.
“What the hell happened to you?!” Enzo snarled, his voice low so as not to alert the sleeping humans inside.
Lisa panted for a few moments, her wild eyes darting between Enzo and I, before answering. “You guys are pathetic,” she said. There was almost a hint of laughter behind her squeaky voice. “I’ve been watching you for days now. It’s hilarious watching your little game of back-and-forth. Remember when we used to do that, Enzo? God, it was fun.”
Enzo rolled his eyes, his grip still firm on Lisa’s shoulders as he continued to pin her against the ground.
“That’s not what I’m referring to,” he said.
Lisa giggled. “Oh, you mean my new threads?” she said, referring to her newfound wolf form like it was just another outfit. “I’m a mad wolf, baby.”
If Lisa didn’t sound utterly insane before, she sure did now. Enzo glanced up at me, frustration and puzzlement drawn across his face.
“Did someone give you the serum, Lisa?” I said, walking up to them now that I had caught my breath and
crouching next to her. As I looked into her eyes, I noticed now that they were entirely bloodshot. She licked her lips hungrily as she stared at my neck, like she was just dying to sink her teeth into my flesh. I could see that her canine teeth were much longer and sharper now than they had been before.
“Oh, the Mad Wolf serum?” she replied, her tone of voice mocking. “Of course. How could I refuse?”
I sighed and made eye contact with Enzo for a second. “Who gave you the serum?” Enzo asked.
Lisa coughed a bit and replied in a whiny tone of voice, “I’m not gonna attack you, alright? Whatever your ugly new girlfriend did to me just now made sure that I can’t shift. Can you loosen your grip a bit so I can breathe, at least?”
Enzo hesitantly loosened his grip on Lisa, but still held her firmly to the forest floor in case she tried to sneakily shift again.
“Answer his question,” I said.
Lisa rolled her eyes. “Look, I don’t know exactly who it was,” she said, keeping her eyes on Enzo. “I knew something happened to me during those days when you had me locked up in your house — which, by the way, was pretty hot if you ask me — and then after that, it was like something was missing… I needed my fix, you know? So when I got a cute little package with a bow and everything that said that drinking what was inside would make me feel better, and also make you fall in love with me again, I couldn’t help myself from giving the serum a try And I’ll tell you what — I feel better than ever. Or at least I did, before she ruined it just now.” Lisa glanced over at me, her eyes projecting pure fury as she began to struggle again to come after me.
Before she could get to me, Enzo suddenly pressed his thumb into Lisa’s forehead and whispered something under his breath. Her body went limp and her eyes closed, her chest rising and falling steadily and deeply as though she had just fallen into a deep sleep.
“That should keep her sedated until the morning,” Enzo said, standing and staring down at Lisa’s limp body.I bit my lip as I stared at her as well, my mind racing with a million thoughts. First and foremost, whoever gave Lisa the Mad Wolf serum was likely also the same person who gave the serum to Justin.
Secondly… How did I make both Lisa and Justin shift back into their human forms?
Enzo must have read my mind, because he held his hand out for me. I took it, and when I stood, he furrowed his brow as he looked at me. “You somehow made both of them lose their wolf forms,” he said, shaking his head. “ Temporarily, at least. Either way, that’s a really powerful and rare ability, Nina.”
I narrowed my eyes, unable to come up with the right words. It seemed that every day, my werewolf heritage was becoming more and more concrete.
Would it only be a matter of days now before I was suddenly able to shift, too?
What if someone gave me the Mad Wolf serum, and that was why I had all of these abilities all of a sudden?
As I stood there and thought about the serum, something else came to mind. I had nearly forgotten about it with so much going on, but now that I thought about it…
“Oh my god,” I whispered, taking a step back from Enzo and looking down at Lisa as my mind raced.
“What?” Enzo said in a concerned tone.
I shook my head. “I just remembered – – I almost forgot — I was going into the chemistry lab the other day, and Edward came out just as I got there. He put something in his pocket and was acting strangely.”
Enzo furrowed his brow, then it was as if a lightbulb went off above his head. ”
You know, now that you mention it, ne seemed to be hiding something on the night that we found Justin in the woods,” he said. “You don’t think…”
“What if Edward is supplying the Mad Wolf serum?” I asked, starting to pace back and forth. “I mean, it’s a bit of a stretch since he was the one who was wiping people’s memories at the beginning of the semester… But maybe things changed…”
Just then, Lisa let out a loud snore. Enzo sighed and crouched down, scooping her up. “We should get her inside,” he said. I nodded and followed him, and together we headed back to the lodge and carried her up to our room. I laid out a couple of spare blankets and a pillow on the floor and he laid her down.
“I don’t know how I’m gonna explain this one,” he whispered.
I bit my lip, thinking for a moment.
There really was no viable explanation for Lisa’s sudden appearance. She came with no vehicle in the middle of the night, and there was no telling whether or not she would suddenly decide to shift again in the morning and reveal her true nature to everyone.
“Maybe it’s time,” I whispered, looking up at Enzo. He turned toward me, his brow furrowed.
“What do you mean?” he asked.
“I think it’s time you tell your team about werewolves.”
