1. An outcast

Paws thudded on the ground behind me as I raced from the caves mouth. I could feel the hot breath upon my back as I tumbled down the side of the ravine, finding no traction on the slippery stones to keep me up. Still, I raced ahead, pushing my young body to its limits in order to stay out of reach from the others. I snatched a glance behind me to see bloody, snarling jaws only inches from muzzle. I kicked with my back legs and heard a sickening crunch as my paw connected with someone's jaw. They stopped behind me and stood on top of a rock jutting out of the cliff side. I spun to face them and braced myself for the oncoming fight. But all I got was a few lousy snarls and stares. I looked back at my new enimies and felt a twinge of regret. I had betrayed my brothers and my friends and, more importantly, my pack. "Get out of our territory and don't come back" they snarled. I looked for another moment then turned and ran. I thought they would follow but after a quarter of a mile I heard and felt nothing behind me so I dropped my pace to a light jog. Truth being that I was exhausted, hungry, and damn right tired, I decided it was time to find some shelter before it got to dark. I scanned my unfamiliar surroundings and saw a large hole on the middle of the cliff and headed towards it. When I got there I went inside. I could smell no other wolf scents so I thought it was safe enough. So I had somewhere to sleep the next on my agenda was some food and water sorce. I found water pretty easily as they was a dip in the ground a couple of feet away from my cave so I drank from the rain that now splashed down my fur onto the ground around my paws. I then picked a spot on the side of the cliff which was hidden by bushes and waited for my prey to come along. It was a matter of moments before a rabbit came hopping into view and I quickly devoured my moursel. I waited some more but there was nothing so I walked back to my cave and curled down into a makeshift nest I had made. As my body began to slip into sleep my final thoughts were about myself.
