There are five of them, wolves yet they look like children. There is an ancient prophecy that speaks of the children of the moon.

Five shall be born on the full moon
Five shall raise to defeat the most powerful
One shall fail One shall succeed
Five of the Moon will prevail.

The Wolves of Manhattan are Accalia, Lycan, Luna, Echo, and Snow. They are the Children of the Moon.


12. Luna's Promise



I watched as the sun rose, unable to fall back to sleep. The All Powerful One could control us at any given time. It terrified me that my friends and I were just puppets in the game of Fate. Fate was a funny creature, she gave you the chance at love, tore it away, gave it back, and then forced you to choose. I got up, angry for not being able to sleep or protect my friends. I sat again in the kitchen, thinking, wondering what my role was in this whole ordeal of fighting this All Powerful One. I knew I was an alpha, but what exactly did that mean? I didn't realize I was crying until I felt one tear drop onto my outstretched hands. I continued to cry despite myself, I needed to be strong. I knew that, but I couldn't make myself fight it any longer. I had been through so much already. I found out that my grandmother looked just like me. She was killed. I would have my revenge, the All Powerful One would die at my hands, and he will die when we all finally confront our destiny.



I must've fallen asleep because Luna woke me; I still had tears staining my face.


"Snow, are you all right?"


"Why do you ask? Do I look odd?"


"No, it’s just that I could see that you've been crying." I looked at Luna, really looked at her, her black hair was streaked with purple, and she looked exhausted.


"Lu, you should go back to sleep."


"I can't."


"Why not?" she sat beside me and whispered,


"I'm too afraid." I looked into her terrified eyes, she was afraid of seeing Echo's demise, to see more of the All Powerful One.


"What makes him so Powerful?"


"Snow, he's a dragon. I think its self explanatory. But in all seriousness, he's so powerful, because we believe he is, he lives off the fear of humans, and us. He knows we're afraid of him. He sleeps and as he does he grows more powerful."


"I'm not afraid of him. I'm afraid of the prospect of me failing to kill him before he kills someone I love."


"Snow, you will defeat him. I promise you that. I see his dreams, you know. I saw him with your grandmother. It was before he became what he is now, he loved her so much. Then he found out he was destined to kill her, and she him. They were devastated. She was mated to your grandfather and then they had your mother. The battle that ended her life was the hardest thing the All Powerful One had to carry out. Like I said he loved her. She loved him. She's not dead."




"Instead of killing her, he killed an all white wolf from her dimension. She hid in a cave as her pack members Howled to the Dead. Now she goes by Ana. She's not an Unspeakable she's still considered a Guardian."


"Ana, you mentioned an Ana before didn't you?"


"Yes, she's his lover."


"Disgusting, she's a traitor."


"I suppose. But wouldn't you do that for Lycan if the choice came to be?" Luna said barely above a whisper.


"I suppose." By the end of our conversation the sun was blinding. I heard Lycan groan and I shut my mouth and went to the fridge. "Do you want anything?"


"Could you make some coffee?"


"Sure," Luna's my best friend, and some say we could be sister's. Probably because we're also cousins. "So Lycan about your fake fight last night. How was it like to be controlled by the All Powerful One?"


"How did you know?"


"I'm the 'oracle' remember?"


"Oh yes sorry. It was horrible, terrifying."


"You'll get better trust me; Accalia is back to her usual bitchy ways."


"I heard that." Accalia's bell like voice said.


"Me too." I heard Echo.” I smell coffee."


"Hello love." Luna greeted her.


"Hello Lu." she returned. I smiled at them and Lycan came up to me and wrapped his arms around my waist and bent down and placed a good morning kiss on my lips.


"Morning." I smiled.


"Good morning." he whispered.


"Oh get a room." Accalia drawled out still half asleep. I heard a sharp intake of breath, and then a loud thump. I turned quickly and saw Luna on the ground.


"I promise you this. The battle will be too soon." I didn't know what to do, was this yet another vision, would she finally see Echo's demise? She started to speak in the terrifying voice that belonged to the Oracle.




"One sleeps its true

One shall fall that is also the case.

Four of the Moon must search for what is lost.

One of the Moon will be terribly lost.

Fated to be just a Ghost.

Find her, and you will be saved,

The battle not yet won,

Will cost those who loved and lost

Two of the Moon,

Shall lose their love.

Only for it to be returned once more.

For this is my promise.

A promise I will keep."





Luna stopped talking and fainted into Echo's arms. The fear in the eyes of my friends was evident. We were going to win and one of was going to lose. That was Luna's promise that she would keep.
