Being a teenager is hard enough, but when your dad is an Alpha werelion it complicates matters even more. Victoria doesn’t feel like she fully fits in anywhere and things become more unsteady when she meets the new werelion in her dad’s pride, Brandon. Is there a way she can alter her genes to gain the ability to shift, or will she learn to accept who she is?
“I really need to stop telling you everything,” I mumbled as we finally entered the food area. She was right though, I loved the playful harassment from dad’s friends, but Dad always embarrassed me at some point by making a comment or making me do something stupid. Things had been different the last two times that I had visited him though. I was not sure if it was a good thing or not. It almost seemed like they were starting to treat me like an adult and not so much like an innocent little girl. I knew I should have been happy about it, but I did not want things to change too much.
I took a tray and loaded it with two cheeseburgers, two fries, a salad and a soda. The cashier, a stocky woman in her late forties with dyed black hair and a few chins too many, shook her head as she totaled my purchases and said, “I’ll never figure out how something as thin as you eats so much.”
I tapped my right thigh. “Hollow leg.”
She laughed and handed me my change before tallying up Sandy’s purchases. I made my way through the crowded cafeteria until I saw Devon with his arm raised on the left side of the cafeteria, near the front entrance. Devon was very distinguishable in the cafeteria since he was the tallest guy in school and the only one with a white, clean shaven head. I constantly teased him that his father was Mr. Clean from the commercials, but he just shrugged it off and said I was just jealous of his height. He was only a little bit right.
