Melissa nodded silently after Nick said this. But then she looked up agan, seeing that Harding wanted to handcuff the Werewolf. Nick looked angry again when Harding tried to reason with Nick.
The young woman stepped in front of Nick, and looked up at him. She felt smaller than him, which made her a little afraid. But then she breathed and calmed down.
"Nick? Please... please don't be mad. I'll try and tell Officer Harding to put away the handcuffs. I trust you." After this, she smiled at him. Then she glanced at her side, and looked at Harding. "Officer Harding? I'm sure Nick won't hurt anybody. He'll protect us, I'm sure. And once we get to the city, he'll be on his way."
