Alex looked up at the large wall mounted clock from where he sat, it was just going on 3 pm and he realised that he had been sitting in that same chair for nearly 4 hours talking with the head of the London institute, he had gone to the heads office and library after the last full moon just like he had every month; the memories of the last transformation from only two nights ago coming back, he pain in his body as the drug wore off and he lost control of his mind as the wolf in him took command and tried to escape.
Alex looked over at the head of the institute as he worked, like every month he was preparing the syrum that alex would need to take, as he worked he spoke to alex "that last change... it was stronger wasn't it?" He asked looking up from the table. Alex could only nod softly and speak in a whisper "it was so strong... I think it even managed to weaken one of the chains... but I think the wards still held around the room" he said thinking about the softly glowing scrip which encircled the room he stayed in, his head came up as the shadow of the only man beside himself that knew what he was came over and placed a hand on the teens shoulder "its ok, those chains and wards are there to help, they are not meant to keep others away but keep you from harming anyone even yourself" he said giving a gentle squeeze of the hand to show he was there for the you man "now, here take this and try not to worry about it" he said handing a small metal case to Alex which held the 4 injections for the next month.
Alex nodded as he stood and accepted the only way for him to keep his secret, "thank you, as always you seem to know how to keep me calm and together... and you always seem to have just what I need" alex said holding up the case before bowing and turning to leave. As he left the heads office he once more put on his usual mask of not feeling or caring for anyone, he started to move quickly then towards his room as he passed down the brightly lit halls of the institute, as he walked he began passing other shadow hunters so he tucked the small case in one of the chest pockets of his coat; Alex continued on and soon found himself passing by the training room, he could hear the sounds of others in there and stopped to look in through the door at who it was.
When alex saw that it was anabelle and harri he stepped into the room and cleared his throat to het their attention, "start or finish? " he asked them.
