26. Bearing Bad News

Luke ran and flew as fast as he could back to the tree. He needed to get help but what if it was too late and they were already gone? He didn't want to think about it. The moon was starting to descend from its peak in the sky and the nights wind bit like fangs through his clothes and onto his skin. He put all that to the back of his mind as he was almost to the giant tree he called home. Landing with a thud he ran as fast as he could to Hailee's house. He swung open the door and Trevor was already bursting out of his room, his eyes alert. 

"What the hell!" Trevor said to him, anger starting to show on his face.

"Hailee... Zander.. gone" Luke said in between breaths.

"What do you mean, gone?" Trevor asked. "What happened, Luke? Where are they?" Trevor asked him, grabbing him by the shoulders, and getting him to look at him.

"Zander, Hailee, and I all went out while you all were asleep to check out the camps. We figured that it would be safer that way!" He said shaking his head, worry plainly on his face.

"Then what happened? Where did they go?" Trevor said, almost shouting in his face.

"Then we met these people, they didn't mean us any harm I know they didn't but then this other group came." 

"And then? Who was the other group?" Trevor said, his voice a little shaky.

"The people we met called them a cult. I didn't even get a chance to see them before I left to get help. They were looking for Hailee." Luke said and Trevor cursed under his breath.

"Do you know where they are taking her?" Trevor asked.

"No, but they aren't just taking her. They're taking Zander too." Luke said finally. A loud bang erupted as Trevor's fist hit the wall. "I'm sorry." Luke said, flinching away from Trevor.

"Can you lead me to where they went." Trevor asked after a long silence. 

"I can take you to where they were last but I really don't know where they went after that." Luke said. Trevor sighed and nodded.

"That will have to be good enough for now." Trevor said backing away from Luke and heading for the door.

"Where are you going?" Luke asked him.

"To talk to Flitiarn and then to wake the others." Trevor said before the door slammed shut and Luke was left alone in the house. Trevor walked and half jogged to the wolf house. Lykos was sleeping near the door and lazily got to his feet when Trevor entered. Flit did almost the same but was walking towards them from deeper in the house. 

"Hailee's gone Flitiarn." Trevor said to him, sweat beading on his face.

"What? No if she was in danger I would have known." He said with a low growl.

"I know but I can't even sense her either Flitiarn. That's what I'm worried about, I would have been able to sense her too." Trevor said to him. Flit paused for a moment before whining softly.

"I can't sense her. That should not happen." Flit said to him 

"Something must be blocking us from seeing her or feeling her and whatever it is isn't good." Trevor said. 

"I will track her." Lykos said to them. "Flitiarn and I can track her better than the others." 

"No Lykos, we all need to go. Whatever they found doesn't want us to follow them so we need to strike hard and fast." Trevor said to them. 

"Yes, Trevor." Lykos said finally. Luke came through the large door moments later with Snow and Heather. 

"I got them up and told them about what happened for you." Luke said to Trevor.  

"What happened to Zander and Hailee?" Snow asked, alert and frightened.

"They were taken by someone when they went to the camp without us. Luke was the only one who made it back." Trevor said to her. The eyes of everyone in the room turned to look at Luke. He shuffled and looked down.

"I'm sorry, we thought it would be better if we just went ourselves so that none of you would be in any danger." Luke said softly. Snow was on him in a second, for a girl with ice at her will she sure could have a temper. 

"Well look how that turned out. Because of your brilliant plan now Zander and Hailee are the ones in danger!" Snow said, her voice shaking a little. 

"Calm down Snow. I know this is all hard to take in but yelling won't help you right now." Trevor said.

"Yeah, and if anything be mad at them, they were the ones who decided it would be a great idea to go outnumbered." Heather said to her, almost unfazed by all this. Snow gave a stern glare to Heather.

"Fine, then what else do you propose? We have no idea where they are at." Snow asked.

"We go after them. Luke knows the camp and hoping its not gone when we arrive maybe the people can tell us where they went." Trevor said. "And we have Flitiarn and Lykos who are helping us too and then can try to track her smell." The wolves both nodded in agreement.

"What if they-" Snow said but couldn't finish the words. Trevor still knew what she was going to say though.

"I don't know if they will hurt them or not. All we can do is hope." Trevor said. "Now everyone start getting ready. We may need to prepare for a war."
