This storyline stems from my wish to write some kind of horror/thriller plot. Listening to Two Steps From Hell

Jared sits in his office and stares out of the glass walls, watching the evening sun being reflected in the glass and metal of the opposite building. He was tired. No, more like exhausted. The meeting in the afternoon had been strenuous to an unbelievable extent and after the morning he had had, Jared had been more than a little unprepared for what was to come.
The only highlight had been confronting the creep from the coffee shop and giving him a piece of his mind. Hopefully it would be enough but Jared is more than willing to go to the police and more than eager to take the pervert on. No way is he going to tolerate some stranger to stalk him. Who knows what the guy might do. Megan stays with Jared and there's no way he's letting some perverted creep hang around where his little baby sister is.
His brother had insisted on beating the guy up but Jared had though that a verbal confrontation would be better than just cornering the guy in some dark alley and beat him up. The whole situation is surreal enough as it is. Never before had Jared been remotely thinking about an incident where he would be stalked by some weird guy. First of all with the exception of one blow job in college he had never shown any interest in any guy. Besides the fact that he's definitely straight, Jared never thought of himself possessing the looks necessary to be picked by a stalker.
He yawns and rubs his neck. With the lack of coffee in the morning and the uncertainty of where to get his daily dose of caffeine the next day, he growls. It's deep and has an animal quality to it. It's rare but there are times, exceptions when his wolf shows through. But Jared's wolf nature is almost latent. Unlike other Homo Lupus Sapiens
he doesn't posses heightened senses or animal instincts. He can change and in his wolf form he has the same abilities as anybody else, but as a human, his true form, he doesn't have any special powers or abilities. Not that he needs them in his life.
The weakness of his animal side is also the reason for his not feeling the urge to change from time to time. He only did so when his time for the first time to change came and since then never again. But, he would soon need to do so again. Megan is nearing her time and she insists on Jared being the one to be there with her. All the way. Her growing into the wolf so late, a year later than what would usually be considered the latest time to change, made it doubly hard on her. It'll be a difficult time for everyone.
A knock at is office door has him look over to the door. "Enter."
Alona peaks inside and smiles at him. "Everyone's gone home and there will be a follow up to today's meeting tomorrow noon."
"Thanks." He tries real hard to smile back, but it's almost like his facial muscles are made of lead and moving them is far too strenuous a job to be achieved right now. "You can go home as well. I'll be heading out in a few minutes myself."
His secretary nods at him and with a kind good night she leaves him to his thoughts. Once more he worries about Megan, hoping that everything will go all right with her first change. There are so many risks, so many dangers that have to be thought of and that his little sister has to be protected against.
Some days he thinks that there will never be a time when she will be ready to go out there into the world on her own. At least he doesn't want there to be. Josh actually feels this way about both of them. Jared moving out at home and living together with Genevieve, someone who is not at all knowledgeable about their world, had been tough on everyone, Jared's siblings especially.
He watches the sun set and then he leaves the office, hurrying home to Megan and to another night of worrying about what is to come in the all too near future.=> 14.
