Example text

Klar war der Wunsch albern, schließlich war er ein Wolf und ich augenscheinlich ein Leopard, unsere Tiere würden voneinander gar keine Notiz nehmen. Doch ich liebte Richard schon so lange, wir waren durch Jean-Claudes Zeichen miteinander verbunden, und ich trug ein Stück seines Tieres in mir. Ich wollte es unbedingt wissen. Ich wollte wissen, ob ich mit ihm hätte haben können, was ich mit Micah hatte. Ich schob die Hand durch die Machtaura, und es war wie ein Griff in die Steckdose. Die Energie knisterte schmerzhaft auf meiner Haut.

Mein Humor ist manchmal ein bisschen undurchsichtig oder vielleicht auch gar nicht komisch. Jacob jedenfalls fand es nicht lustig. �Geh mit ihr, Sylvie. Sorg dafür, dass sie alles Nötige bekommt, um ihn rauszuholen und sicher zum Auto zu bringen«, sagte Richard. «, fragte sie. �Wir bleiben bei ihm«, sagte Jamil, und beide sahen unverhohlen zu Jacob. Sie trauten ihm nicht nur nicht, es war ihnen auch egal, wenn er das merkte. Wie hatte es so weit kommen können? Was war im Rudel vorgegangen, das mir noch keiner erzählt hatte?

Auch er strahlte eine bebende Kraft aus, und er bewegte sich genauso anmutig, genauso zornig wie Jacob, doch ihm fehlte etwas, das der andere hatte, vielleicht eine gewisse Härte, das Finstere. Eines war jedenfalls klar: Jacob war rücksichtslos. Das konnte ich beinahe riechen. Und rücksichtslos war Richard nicht, ob das nun gut war oder schlecht. Ich seufzte. Ich hatte immer geglaubt, alles würde gut werden, wenn er sein Tier erst einmal akzeptiert hatte. Er setzte sich auf den Thron. Der Feuerschein spielte auf seinen welligen Haaren und verwandelte sie in Kupferfäden.
