A cold wind teased Kelsey’s naked body and she shivered. She slowly opened her eyes and looked around. There was nothing but leaves. Kelsey searched the ground with her hands and they touched something cold and solid. She slowly and fearful rotated her head. When she saw her sister’s body she gasped and covered her mouth. “Oh my God” she started crying as she crawled to Amber. “Amber, wake up. Please, honey, wake up” But Ambers eyes remained closed. “I’m so sorry, Amber. This is all my fault” she sobbed.
“Hey, anda didn’t do all of it. I kicked some keldai too”
Kelsey looked down on Amber to see her eyes open. “Amber, you’re alive!”
“Not quite” Amber groaned. “Okay, can anda help me stand up?”
Kelsey grabbed Ambers arm and helped her restore her balance. Once she stood steady on her feet Amber slapped Kelsey.
“Ow! What did anda do that for?” Kelsey exclaimed shocked. Amber raised her arm. “You bit me, we’re even now”
“I see” Kelsey said. She looked at Ambers arm. “You need to get that fixed”
Amber took off her cardigan and reached it out to Kelsey. “Put this on”
Kelsey accepted the piece of clothing and put it on. “Good thing I’m short. Now back to the cure”
“You know there’s no cure for a werewolf bite” Amber lied. “And even if there was anda wouldn’t be able to get it”
“Let’s worry about that later” Kelsey said. “First I need to get anda away from here” She pulled Ambers arms over her shoulder and walked her out.
