Heart of a beast Episode 34 & 35

(Love is the word💓)
❤Melvin’s POV❤️
I gave her a look like she had said an abominable thing.. Did she just say she’ll help?
My aim earlier was to tell her the whole truth about the necklace, that it wouldn’t harm her and tell her the exact time when she can take it off..but she kept disrupting my words and now agreed to help.
“You sure about this?” I asked like I didn’t hear well “I mean, yeah. Of course you should be. Thank you” I said.
“Wanna sit so I can tell you more about it?” I asked, adjusting on the bench.
“Um.. I don’t think I want to hear more of that whole curse story thing, just tell me how I can help, what I’ll be doing” she said.
“Well okay. Her name’s Lucinda, the girl who..cursed me. She stays at my house and plans to ruin my family.. But once you get there, in her room is a casket like box where she trapped my soul at and well, the Clara girl I told you about,” I said and she nodded.. “So you just have to open it”
“That’s it?” She asked and I nodded, she sighed. “And this Lucy person, she’s a witch right?”
“Yes, a special bred witch” I added and she w€t her l!p with her tongue.
“Okay, so she can harm me? What if she kills me before I even get to the box?” Kayla asked, sitting beside me on the bench.
It’s crystal clear Kay doesn’t want to be involved with this and I know solely that she’d have long neglected it if I didn’t tell her her life was involved. Well truly it is, I mean she’s also trapped in a box too or maybe someone just very familiar to her.
“Probably. I’m sure Belle will have a way to prevent that” I said.
“Belle? That old pretty woman?” She asked and I shrugged a yes.
“Okay, do I come to the wood or-
“No. The police are all over it. I’ll just ask her and tell you what she says” I said.
“I’ll come to your place”
“But my mom-
“I’ll know if she’s around or not. I have a good s£nse of smell” I said.
“Okay then. I’ll head to cl@ss now, lunch time’s almost over, you should go too” she said, standing up and I nodded. She walked away.
I sighed out loudly.. Wow!
💘Kayla’s POV💘
I got home that day and thankfully mom wasn’t home, while preparing myself for Melvin’s words and waiting for him, I sipped on a gl@ss of orange juice. My mind still raced back on his words. So I’ll be getting involved in this after all.
I’ll be meeting a witch and un-trapping a soul.. Geez!
I shut my eyes and took in a long breath..
I’ll just do it and get it over with.. Get away from this whole thing and try never to get involved in anything similar. I’ll probably cajole mom even more about moving away from here, hopefully the beast case will be over by then since it will no longer exist and everything will go back to how it use to be.
I wonder how this Lucinda will look like? Probably a haggard old woman with so many wrinkles and a long pointed curvy nose, one that probably have a broom and–
I shivered at the thought..
I’ll really be meeting a witch and..oh lord!
A sharp knock on the door broke into my thought.
I sighed and stood up as if already knowing it was Melvin. I opened it and he was standing right there, his hair styled backward now.
“Hi” he smiled at me.
“Hi..Um come in” I moved aside and he walked in. He took a seat on the long couch while I closed the door and used the coffee table opposite the couch.
He was silent for ten seconds straight.
“Well..Say something!” I said, wishing he could just say that he found a way to free me out of this mess.
“Um okay. So I talked to Belle-
“Yes!” I cut into his words, hopefully, he would just say what I wanted to hear.
“Well she said it’s safe enough for you and well, you should be brave no matter what you see and that when you get to Lucinda’s room; you’d find a red hook at the top of my box and when you pull it out completely, the box automatically opens and I become free and you do the same for Clara’s box” he emphasized and I sighed..
“So I can’t get hurt or killed”
“No, she can’t harm you cos you’re my chi-mate but you have to avoid meeting her. Because it’s you, she’d be unaware when you arrive but you can’t take any chances, she might come in anytime so you have to avoid that” he said and I nodded, taking another sip of long breath.
“Okay!” I sighed again. “So everything will be normal after I do that?” I asked.
“Yes!” He said “And don’t worry Kay, you’ll be fine. I promise” he said.
“You can’t guarantee that, can you?” I asked, my fears reflecting awfully in my voice.
“At least we have a connection, I’ll always know when something goes wrong, even though I really doubt that, but Belle and I will save you before you get hurt” he said, his words filled with so many @ssurance.
“Okay! I’ll get your house address and do this tomorrow. I just want to get over with it fast and-
“Someone’s coming!” Melvin suddenly interrupted me. “It’s-
A knock on the door made him stop talking and our gaze dart to each other’s at the same time..
“It’s not your mom” he said.
I gave him a look to be quiet while I stood up and walked to the door. I held the knob and turned it sideways before opening the door a little and almost immediately it hit me..
“Hi” he said, a big smile plastered on his face.
The movies!
❤Kayla’s POV❤️
“Um.. Will you let me in or-
“Oh yeah, sorry. Come in” I moved aside and he walked in. I breathed out and closed the door before turning in..
Jake’s gaze was on Melvin and just as soon as I closed the door, it turned to me.
“Jake, meet Melvin, my friend” I introduced, feeling completely nervous.
“Hi, I should be on my way now, Kay” Melvin stood up.
“Oh..Yeah, bye” he gave Jake a small look and walked out.
Jake stared after him.
“So um.. Do you need anything before we go?”
“No thanks. Just get prepared quick” he said.
“Yeah, I’ll just grab a jacket” I told him and walked to my room. I picked up a jacket from the hanger and checked myself out in the mirror. Well I don’t look bad, I think I’m good.. At least it’s comfortable to me and I’m sure Jake wouldn’t mind, it’s not like it’s a date anyways.
I walked out and we head out of the house.
The movie was well, not too okay for my taste but it was somehow manageable. I wonder when last I watched a movie filled with so many romance and random high school life. I’m always stuck more with widelife and they seem very cool to me but this, well there’s no harm going back to old ways; is there?
Mom didn’t call and I @ssumed she didn’t get home yet, as the bus drove Jake and I home.. I noticed him trying to make moves at me and when we talked, he tried really h@rd to make the whole subject about us but I was always quick to chip In something different and even though I knew he felt irritated by it, he kept his cool.
Not like he has a choice anyways.
The bus stopped at his station first.
“Are you not getting off?” I asked when he didn’t make any move to stand up.
“No.. I’ll just get down at your stop” he said.
“Won’t that be stressful for you, I mean it’s kind of far to your side” I said.
“I know. I just want to be sure of your safety first” he said.
“Come-on Jake, I’ll be fine, okay? Don’t give yourself that much stress cos of me. Get down before the bus takes off” I said.
“You’re sure?” He asked and I nodded. “Okay. Goodnight then. I’ll call you” he said and I nodded.. He moved to the exit.. I sighed in my seat as the bus began moving again.
I feel so tired and sleepy from all that watching and my neck was hurting.. I’d go to bed once I get home. I stretched.
The next morning, I prepared for school and mom dropped me off, I waved her bye and walked into the school building. I got to my locker and was about pulling it open when I felt a known pres£nce. Alarmed unknowingly, I turned and my gaze landed on Melvin. I heaved a relief sigh, shut my locker door and turned to him.
“Hi,” he said, pushing his curly hair off his eyes. I smiled slightly in response “I wanted to tell not to go to my house any longer today” he said.
“Why?” I asked “you found another way that doesn’t involve me out?”
I asked, hoping it’d be true.
“No but Belle said Lucinda will be having a ritual today, she’ll be communicating with the rest of her kinds in the secret room and there’s absolutely no way you can go in without any of them seeing you” he said and I nodded..
Well, I normally would be scared hearing this but somehow, I’m getting used to this horrors..
“Okay, so when is it safe enough?”
“Tomorrow, it’s closest to weekend so it’s better, Lucy will be at work by then. And I’ll keep your mom distracted from coming home” he said and I nodded with a sigh.
“So how do I know where this ‘secret room’ is?” I asked, emphasizing on the secret room.
“I’ll lead you to it, you just have to follow wherever you feel is right” he said.
“Ho-” I was about to ask him how he was going to lead me without being there when I realized that we have a connection now and in this world, almost anything is possible. “Okay, I’ll do it tomorrow then”
I had barely finished my words when I heard the bell, signifying the commencement of first period.
“I have morning cl@ss so I’ll go first” I said to him and walked to cl@ss. Getting there, as expected Clara was already on seat and she was the first to greet me. I smiled back at her and the history teacher walked in.
It was the third period and last before lunch break and the English teacher was doing her job while we paid attention.
She suddenly looked at me..
“Is there any problem Miss Kincaid?” She asked.
“What?” I asked, surprised.
“Your.. Neckband is glowing. Can you please turn it off now?” She asked and my gaze immediately slapped down to it and truly it was blinking red..
Oh geez!
“Um,” I quickly covered the light “Can I go out for a second ma’am, I need to use the restroom” I said and she gave me a look, I saw the resistance in it but she finally said..
“Okay, don’t stay too long” she said and I nodded before standing up.
“Is everything alright, Kay?” Clara asked, obviously seeing my nervous face.
“Of course. I just nee to use the restroom, I’ll be back” I tell her hurriedly and rushed out. As I got to the p@ssageway, I began thinking of what could be wrong, Melvin is in school so he’s definitely in trouble here.. I rushed to his cl@ss and peeped through the window but couldn’t find him. My heart was beating in a different tune and it completely confused me, it was more like I was in panic or something and I could hear growl sound emanating from me.
I immediately rushed down the stair and my feet began leading me, I found myself in the gents and I was walking to it.. I p@ssed through the entrance and trailed gently through the fleet of doors.. I stopped at one and raised my hand, placing a knock on it.. It was locked from the inside which means it was occupied but I couldn’t leave it..
I placed my ear on it and I began hearing soft fainting p@nts..
“Melvin?” No response.
“Melvin are you in there?” I called again and a small growl responded in his stead and then the unlocking of the door came next. I put my f!ng£r on the knob and twisted it, it gave way and the door pulled open..
I quickly entered and closed it and just as I turned, a shrieked scream p@ssed through my l!ps and I almost jumped out of my own skin, I put a palm on my l!ps to prevent myself from yelling further… But my eyes dilated in complete shock!
Before me was a horrible sight of Melvin, not just himself but him in his beast self!
