Chapter 1

Sophia’s POV

I woke up to the sound of my alarm blaring in my ear. Another day, another chance to hide who I really am. I’m Sophia, and I’m a hybrid. My dad is a werewolf, and my mom is a witch. You’d think that would make me special, but in this world, it just made me an outcast.

I got dressed and headed down to the kitchen to grab some breakfast before school. My dad was already there, sitting at the table, reading the newspaper. He looked up as I walked in.

“Morning, Sophia,” he said, smiling at me.

“Morning, Dad,” I replied, pouring myself a bowl of cereal.

“You excited for school today?”

I rolled my eyes. “Not really.”

My dad chuckled. “Come on. It can’t be that bad.”

I shrugged. “I just hate having to hide who I am all the time. It’s exhausting.”

“I know, honey. But it’s for your own safety. You know how the werewolves and vampires feel about hybrids.”

I nodded. “I know. It just sucks.”

After breakfast, I grabbed my bag and headed out the door, ready to face another day of pretending to be someone I was not.

As I walked to school, I kept my head down, trying to blend in with the other students. I was always afraid that someone would notice something different about me and expose me to the supernatural world.

When I got to school, I went to my locker and grabbed my books for the day. That was when I saw her. The new girl. She was standing at her locker, looking lost and confused.

I walked over to her. “Hey, do you need some help?”

She turned to me and smiled. “Yeah, that would be great. I’m new here, and I have no idea where anything is.”

I introduced myself, and she told me her name was Lily. We walked to our first class together, chatting about where she was from and what brought her here.

As we sat down in our seats, I couldn’t help but feel a connection to her. Maybe it was because she was new, or maybe it was because she didn’t know my secret. Either way, I was happy to have made a new friend.

The rest of the day went by in a blur of classes and trying to avoid attention. But at lunchtime, Lily and I sat together, and I felt like I could let my guard down for a little while.

As we were eating, one of the popular girls walked over to our table. “Hey, Sophia,” she said, smirking at me. “What’s it like being a freak?”

I felt my face turn red. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

She laughed. “Oh, come on. Everyone knows your dad’s a werewolf and your mom is a witch. How does it feel to be a half-breed?”

I could feel the eyes of the other students on me, and I wanted to disappear. But then Lily spoke up.

“Leave her alone,” she said, standing up from the table. “Just because she’s different doesn’t mean she’s any less of a person than you are.”

The popular girl sneered at Lily. “Who are you to talk to? You’re just the new girl.”

Lily didn’t back down. “I may be new, but I know a bully when I see one. Now leave us alone.”

The popular girl stormed off, and I looked at Lily in amazement. “Thanks,” I said. “That was really brave of you.”

I nodded, feeling grateful to have a friend like her.

The rest of the day went by without incident, and before I knew it, it was time to go home. As I walked back, I thought about Lily and how she didn’t judge me for who I was. It was a rare feeling, and I cherished it.

When I got home, my dad was waiting for me. “How was school?” he asked.

“It was okay,” I replied. “Nothing too eventful.”

He nodded, but I could tell he was worried about something. “Sophia, there’s something I need to tell you.”

I braced myself, knowing that this was going to be something big.

“There’s been some talk among the werewolves. They’re getting restless, and they’re looking for a fight. I don’t know when, but I have a feeling that something’s going to happen soon.”

My heart sank. I knew that if the werewolves started a war with the vampires, it would be a bloodbath. And I would be caught in the middle, unable to choose a side.

“I’ll be careful,” I said, trying to reassure him.

He gave me a small smile. “I know you will. You’re strong, Sophia. You’ll get through this.”

I went to bed that night feeling a sense of foreboding. I knew that something was coming, and I didn’t know if I was ready to face it. But I had no choice. I was a hybrid, and I had to be ready for whatever came my way.

The next few weeks were tense. The werewolves were becoming more aggressive, and there were rumors that they were planning an attack on the vampire community. My dad and the other werewolf elders were doing their best to keep the peace, but I could see the worry etched on their faces.

At school, Lily and I kept to ourselves. We didn’t want to attract any unwanted attention, but it was hard to ignore the tension that hung in the air. The other students whispered and cast glances our way, and I knew that they were suspicious of us. They knew that we were different, and they didn’t like it.

One day, as Lily and I were walking home from school, we were approached by a group of werewolves. They were older than us, and I could see the hunger in their eyes. They wanted a fight.

“Hey, little witch,” one of them snarled. “What are you doing with that mutt?”

I felt a surge of anger, but I knew that I had to keep my cool. “We’re just walking home,” I said calmly.

“Well, maybe you should find a different route,” another one said, stepping forward. “We don’t like your kind around here.”

Lily stepped in front of me, her hands raised in a defensive gesture. “We’re not causing any trouble,” she said. “Just leave us alone.”

But they didn’t listen. They started to advance, their claws and teeth bared. I could feel my heart pounding in my chest, and I knew that we were in trouble.

Suddenly, there was a blur of movement, and the werewolves were knocked back. I looked up to see a group of vampires standing in front of us, their eyes glowing in the dark.

“Get out of here,” one of them snarled, baring his fangs. “This is vampire territory.”

The werewolves hesitated for a moment, then turned and ran. I could feel the adrenaline coursing through my veins, and I knew that I had just narrowly escaped a fight.

The vampire who had spoken turned to us. “Are you two okay?” he asked, his eyes scanning us for injuries.

“We’re fine,” I said, still in shock. “Thank you for helping us.”

He nodded. “It’s not safe for hybrids like you to be out on your own these days. You need to be careful.”

With that, he turned and walked away, his group following closely behind him. I watched them go, feeling a mix of gratitude and fear. The vampires had saved us, but I knew that they weren’t to be trusted either.

As we continued on our way home, Lily and I were both silent. We had just been caught in the middle of a war, and I didn’t know how much longer we could avoid getting hurt.
