5. The past is the past

I woke to the sounds of panting and scuffling filling my ears. Soft whimpers seemed to be coming out from storms direction, so I heaved my body out of my nest and paced over to her. "Storm are you ok?" I asked. " caleb there's something you should know about me and my past. It's the reason I came to be here now and I want you to know before you decide anything properly. I made my own way away from my pack because I got abused. It all started when my leader took a fancy to me. He took me to his cavern and said to me that he would have me as his new wife and I could be his deputy. However to his disliking I refused that position. See, my mother always told me love would find me in its own time and I would know when it did. My mother however died soon after I was eleven so I had to bring up the family on my own. I focused on getting my eldest brother ready to look after the family as I had to go out with the others regularly on hunting patrols. I also planned to leave one day anyway as my mother told me with her dying breaths that my destiny was outside the pack life I lived in. So anyway I wasn't looking for a mate. He got angry at my decline and he corner me in his cavern. That's how I got the scars on my belly here. He swiped at me until I bled. He waited a couple more months but then again he asked once more. And again, I payed for my choice. When my oldest brother was ready to leave the family I took off, knowing I could be finally free. But not before I paid back to my leader. I asked him to walk with me then I attacked him. I didn't kill him I just gave him scars to match mine. But it thought you needed to know. I wouldn't do that normally but I had to release myself from his grasp. I understand if you change your mind about now. But I really like you caleb and I think we could get along." She finished. " listen storm, the past is the past. And you haven't turned around and bitten me yet ! What matters now is you and me watching each others backs and you pursuing your destiny. So I don't judge you at all. And you are defiantly not going anyway! We've only just made friends properly." I said with a smile. She nuzzled me gratefully and that warm feeling crept into me again. Then she fell asleep against my shoulder after sitting there for a while. I gently laid her down and laid next to her. Life, so far, was pretty good
