Chapter 14

Nick's pov

"In," I ordered Adalind as I shoved her farther into the room.

She tripped over feet at the sudden movement causing her to stumble, crashing onto the floor right at Monroe and Rosalee's feet. They quickly stood as they began muttering harmful words under their breath.

"How did you find her?" Monroe asked.

"I found her in the woods. Now, I would really like to know what she was doing out there," I stated as I flashed a glare down at her.

She puffed a strand of hair out of her face before she answered me.

"Like I would ever tell you anything."

"I never expected you to," I said challenging her.

She looked at me quizzically as did Monroe and Rosalee.

"You didn't actually think I believed that you would just come clean, did you?" I started as I began to walk around her, "You seem to forget one thing Adalind. I'm a Grimm and that means that I have no boundaries."

"What are you saying?" she asked as she struggled with the handcuffs.

"I'm saying I have ways of getting what I want from people like you."

I heard Monroe walk up from behind me before whispering in my ear,

"Where are you going with this man?"

"Just trust me, alright?" I responded quietly enough for him to hear.

I slowly walked over so that I was standing right in front of Adalind and with a strong pull I hoisted her back onto her feet. She stared at me bitterly as I spoke once again.

"What if there was a way to get you back to your old self?" I said simply.

Everyone knew what I was talking about; allowing Adalind to become a Hexenbiest once again. Her face drained of color as those words escaped my lips.

"That's impossible," she spat.

"Are you sure? I am a Grimm don't forget."

Monroe and Rosalee looked completely stunned as they watched me from the other side of the room. They couldn't believe it. The two stood there, shocked, as they watched me declare that I was willing to bring back a monster. I nodded my head with a serious look on my face as Adalind's slowly turned into a smile. My mind was made up. I was going to help this horrible creature if it meant getting Juliette back.

"What do you say?" I asked her.

"What do you want to know?" she questioned with a devilish smile as she thought of no longer having to be just a human.

"Why were you in the woods?"

"What's up with you and these woods?" she wondered aloud sarcastically.

If Juliette's life wasn't on the line I probably would have popped my top by now. This woman was seriously beginning to get on my nerves.

"Just answer the question, unless you don't want his help," Rosalee spoke up from behind.

I gave her a quick smile before returning my gaze back to Adalind, waiting patiently for her to answer.

"I can't believe you're even asking me this question. You all know why I was in the woods," she stated matter of factly.

And she was right. We did know why she would be hiding in the woods. I just needed to hear her say it, and for some reason I couldn't help but think that there was more to this story.

"Just answer the question," Monroe said obviously aggravated, most likely due to the face that I was giving Adalind exactly what she had wanted.

"Alright, I'm only going to say this once so listen up. I was in the woods because a lot more has been happening lately than you're aware of. Sure, I had to get away because I knew it was only going to be a matter of time before you came looking for me," she said.

"So you admit to the cat scratch?" Monroe interjected.

"Yes. I admit it," she said with a smile.

"Why would you do such a thing?" I asked as my anger began to boil over.

"Because, you took the most important thing in the world from me! Now you know how it feels!" she bellowed.

"I did what I had to!" I screamed back.

I felt Monroe pull me back slightly as his hand rested on my shoulder. Monroe and Rosalee both now stood beside me as they watched Adalind explain herself.

"Just continue," Rosalee demanded.

Monroe's eyes quickly flashed to the small women who had just spoken with a small smile on his face. What could he possibly be smiling about? Adalind rolled her eyes at the two who stood beside me before continuing.

"So, as I was saying, I was in the woods because I had to get away. Except, that wasn't the only reason. I was out there looking for Juliette. I knew that she would have escaped with what I had given her. I was trying to find her because I was trying to take her away. I knew that you would be out there looking for her in no time and if I could finally make her disappear, well then you would have been a wreck. Basically destroyed," she said.

My eyes blinked furiously at the woman in front of me. She had turned my girlfriend into a cat and was still trying to hunt her down because she hadn't caused me enough emotional pain yet? I felt my head shake as I slowly began to put the pieces together.

"So Juliette's blood…" I started.

"When I had found her I had tried to grab her. Only I didn't realize she would be that strong. The cat like abilities were so powerful and she put up an intense fight. And before I knew it she was gone. Just like that, she vanished. And since then I have been trying to find her. That's why I was in the woods."

That giant wreck in the woods was because of her. She had tried to capture my girlfriend and had failed. But Juliette had been injured. These words kept swirling around in my head as I tried to process them. I looked at her one last time with my final question; the question that could determine it all. Whether I had to keep going or just give up once and for all.

"Is she still alive?" I asked with worry and hope evident in my trembling voice.

"As far as I know, but nothing is ever certain…" she said with a small smile.

Hi! So that cleared up some stuff. Feel free to review cause the more reviews I get the faster I post the next chapters. I know where I want to go with this story and as for following the show's storyline I like to stay away from that. I feel it's more exciting this way because you never know what could happen. Thanks!
