you and I both know that that isn’t going to happen so why don’t you just tell

me what fur ball they’re going to saddle me with." I said as I collected my

stack of papers and organized them into a semi-neat pile.


noisily cleared his voice, "Uh hey Ari…"


I hope that whoever it is that he isn’t a complete moron. If I’m going to be

stuck with a pack partner, the least they can do is send me someone competent."

Mike noisily cleared his throat again.


I asked, looking up from my desk.


was greeted by a tall man standing just inside the office, casually leaning

against the doorframe. He had tousled brown hair and steely grey colored eyes.

High cheekbones and a strong jaw formed his masculine face and a hint of

stubble dusted his jaw line, not enough to appear unkempt but just enough to

give a roguish impression. Dressed in black jeans, a black T, and a black

leather jacket, he oozed tall, dark and handsome with deadly intent.


would be this fur ball right here." He said, an arrogant grin lifting the

corner of his mouth. I let my head fall to the surface of my desk, then for

good measure I gently knocked my forehead on its smooth surface, one, two,

three times. Dammit I couldn’t believe I had just called him a freaking fur

ball! I could feel my cheeks warm in embarrassment and did my best to hide it.


all done with the show?" He asked as I lifted my head from the desk. I glared

at him for good measure and then allowed my head to connect with the desk’s

surface once more before sitting up. rubbing the slight sting away "Yea, I’m

done." I told him. Well, at least this wouldn’t be as bad as I had thought.

James was the only shifter that I actually personally knew and was one of the

few individuals I considered a friend. I met James about six months ago at a

shifter bar downtown, though at the time I didn’t actually know that it was a

shifter bar.


group of coyotes had decided I was easy prey and were giving me a pretty hard

time. James had intervened before things got out of hand which basically meant

that he stopped me from wiping the floor with their coyote asses and burning

the entire building to ash.  It was

probably a good thing that he had stepped in but I remember being furious with

him at the time, I had really wanted to give those bastards a piece of my mind

and show them that I wasn’t just some naive little girl. That was back when I

was still cocky over my abilities. Things had changed since then and the

thought was sobering. Now being a pyrokinetic was something I had to hide and

honestly, that just plain sucked.


you’re my partner?"


nodded, his face going serious, "Yea I’m you’re partner, ready to do something



smiled at that, James knew me all to well.



my messenger bag I followed James out of the office, aware of Mike’s

unapproving gaze on my every step.
