I sat under a tall tree watching my friends argue about pudding when I realized I wasn't getting anywhere in my life. Two of my friends always argue about something stupid, everyone at school thinks I'm the biggest dork in the universe, and my parents are divorce. My life can't possibly get any worse.

Then again, I could be wrong.

"No way! Chocolate pudding is way better than butterscotch!" Aubrie practically screamed at Kylee. It was just another typical day here. So as I sat under the tall tree and watched my friends argue, I just scribbled in my diary.

"You're crazy!" Kylee started. "Butterscotch is the prince of all puddings! Of course it's better!"

"Nuh-ah!"

"Uh-huh!"

"Would you two just shut up?!" I screamed. They just looked at me in shock. Their expressions were so lifeless; like they saw a ghost or something.

"What?" I started. "Is there a spider on my head or something?" I felt on top of my head but there was nothing there.

"Y-you're bleeding!" Aubrie said pointing to my arm.

She was right. There was a bunch of blood running down my right arm and I didn't even know why.

"What did you do?!" Kylee asked as she rushed over to examine my arm. She volunteered at the local hospital, St. Claire's, so she knew what to do.

"Aubrie? Do you mind if we get blood on your sweatshirt?" Kylee asked urgently.

"Not at all!" Aubrie said in a worried voice as she took off her sweatshirt and handed it to Kylee.

"How did this happen?" Kylee asked me with concern as she tied the sweatshirt to my bleeding arm.

"I-I don't know." I answered sheepishly. Then I saw a sharp piece of bark with blood on it. My friends turned towards my gaze and then we all know how I was bleeding.

"Well, good thing it's not serious." Aubrie said in a kind of joking tone.

After that incident we all walked home together since we live in the same neighborhood. And when I got home my parents put gauze on my arm and I just went to bed. But there was something strange about my dream; it wasn't like the ones I usually had.

I felt rage.

Rage seeping through my body; seeping through my blood. And I couldn't stop it.

I grew a tail, and some ears. And soon Hair grew all over my body and my clothes ripped right off my body.

The next thing I knew I was in front of a mirror that showed me the horrible beast I have become.

I was a beautiful white wolf with deep blue eyes. But right next to me was a handsome black wolf with soft green eyes; comforting eyes.

But it didn't help the rage that seeped through my veins.

But soon enough, I woke; and it was time for school.

~The Next Morning~

"Hey Lexi, what was the homework assignment for last night?" Jesse asked me. She was gone the day before so it was a little crazy around here.

"We just had to do a worksheet on fractions." I replied smoothly. I was a little curious though. I had a feeling I was being watched.

"Ok. I'll go ask Mr. Finn for it. Thanks Lexi." Jesse said as she started to walk away. But then she came back and said, "You do know Garrick is behind those lockers watching you, right?" she said pointing to the lockers and then leaving casually. After that I stalked over to the lockers and smacked Garrick on his head.

"Ow!" he cried. "What was that for?!"

"Why are you stalking me?!" I asked in an impatient voice. After all, it was about the time class started.

Garrick looked nervous. Like he was kidding some big secret.

"I found this." He finally said, pulling something out of his backpack. It looked like some sort of diary.

"Is that someone's diary?" I asked; confused.

"Yes, but the thing is, it was buried in my backyard." He replied; with a serious look on his face.

"What were you doing digging in your backyard?" I asked. This was getting really weird.

"I, uh, well, that doesn't matter right now!" he said, sounding kind of mad.

"Ok then," I said, lifting my hands up in defeat. "What does the diary say?" I finally asked.

"It says that in the year 2010, an evil force will come to take over the world." He said, sounding scared. He's such a wimp.

"Dude, that's probably some joke or a crazy person's diary." I exclaimed.

"No!" he whispered. "This is real. We have to create an army. We have to be ready!" he was serious. The only problem was, I had no idea what he was talking about.

"Dude, how can an army of kids defeat evil? And, what evil?" I asked casually.

"You know…" he started. "The secret about our families…" he said in a secretive way.

"What secret?" I asked impatiently. This was getting really weird.

"Oh, you don't know. I, uh, look! An elephant!" he screamed. Trying to distract me. But I didn't look.

"Dude, it's a school. There are no elephants." I said. Then I grabbed him by the shirt and lifted him up.

"Whoa! Hey! Put me down!" he cried as he struggled.

"Not until you tell me what the secret is!" I said angrily. This was getting really, really, really weird!

"I-I can't." he said calmly. Which was weird; how can he be calm if I'm holding him up?

I put him down and headed off for class. I just left him standing there. It is not a typical day so far.
