Jo and openWhen:
At around 6:30Where:
No one had any idea how pissed off Jo was that she had not been camping out at the school when the barrier had gone down. No one but Jo, that was. She had only recently been coming back home, needing to catch up on her school work before it became overwhelming. However, she had been sleeping near a landline every night and gotten Google alerts to actually display a sound if anything new came up. In short, she had been all set up.
The call had come into the landline at ass o'clock in the morning, and the second Jo had heard the jist of it she was up and with boots on, not bothering to change out of her pajamas
. She had banged on every door on her way out, screaming the good news out loud, and then had taken the car she barely ever drove all the way to the school. Jo didn't think she had ever driven so fast in her life.
Upon arriving, Jo was unsurprised by the pandemonium. She spent a good ten minutes trying to angle through the crowd to get to the school, only to be told the people in there had already come out, and been sent to the field hospital set-up on the parking lot. Once Jo found that
, she was promptly stopped by an officer of the law taller than her by a whole foot.
"No one's getting through, miss."
"Like fuck they aren't my family's over there!" Not to mention members of her pack, which was kind of the same thing.
"Miss, we need you to stay calm and wait." Jo stood there, staring at the guy for a second while an idea came to mind. Jaw set, she exhaled sharply.
"Fine." She really didn't want to do this, but fuck it. Jo returned to the car and took off her boots. Then her pants, then shirts. And then she locked her car. Nobody was the least bit interested in her or what she was doing, which was a blessing. Right then and there, she transformed, and the wolf picked up the pants and t-shirt. With the clothes clamped between her teeth, Jo took a running leap through the people and right between the police officer's legs. She rounded the tents, finding the main entrance, and dropped the clothes a little to the side. The police officer seemed to not have noticed, but other people had.Fuck it,
she thought. She wasn't here for them. She was here to pick up her siblings' scent and give them a humongous fucking hug. And so, Jo began sniffing.
