Fire. Blood. War. The voices in my head relentlessly screamed at each other the voices echoing throughout the corridors of my brain. I was trapped. It was like a maze of my mind. Trapped inside hiding from the demons that lurk around each corner. Screaming. Shouting. Killing. Arreana is still out there, with -him-.... I should have known this was going to happen. I knew this was going to happen. But why now. Why her. Why did I let her walk into my life when I knew the consequences. Yet… I sat back and let them happen. I am still fully aware of everything that is going on outside my body, but I have no control over it. I can’t move my legs, arms head, not even a finger. -He- is controlling them. Him… I have to find a way out… I must.
Suddenly a different voice entered knocking all of the others out. Chills shot up my spine. “Oh are you still whining down in there about her? You know what she is. She knows what you are. Your father warned you. You should have listened.”
“Why!? What could it have possibly done to just let it be?”
“Do you not know? That -girl- that you were after, if the rightful heir to the throne you twit! She could easily murder all of us if she knew! We are just hear to finish the job that we started a ten years ago…” Silence suddenly filled the corridor…. Heir? Does he mean rightful queen to the eastern kingdom in Deselia? This doesn’t make sense…. Is sh-” Still confused are you? You are thinking correct. Rightful Queen of Deselia. As you know only the females can be rulers in their Kingdom. She will soon be transported there if we do not.. take care of her…” Balls of glowing red flames appeared around me, as I screamed.
“You can’t do this! I swear if you touch her I-”
“You what? Will Kill me?” He scoffed in a deep voice. “You know only the Shadow Overlord can do that. She won’t live past midnight anyways. The shadow guards are already on her tail, just like her mother ten years ago. And we finally managed to track down the last of her kind in the mortal world. It will all be over soon…” Suddenly something blurry came into my mind…. I was at my house. I could see everything around me. “Are you ready to watch her die?”
“No! Let her go!” Arreana was on the floor scrambling when something was stabbed into my hand and I let out a yelp. She bolted for the door not stopping, floating across the ground as she went. “Arreana! Come back!” Soon I was carried across the ground by an unknown force when suddenly it felt like I hit a brick wall. To my surprise I was grabbed, and there were two shadowy figures holding me by the arms. Someone stood in front of me. He was close to six feet tall, dark brown hair, with a scruffy beard. His eyes were golden, and his face was mostly sculpted. I could see his muscles bulging through his dark purple robes., with golden trim. He looked as just as I remembered him from years ago. Everything from then was burry. Arreana’s footprints ended up at a dead end in the middle of nothing. They just stopped in their tracks.
Lightly slowly started to appear in my eyes, the darkness leaving as quickly as it came. Tall green objects loomed over me, the stars above me shining down brightly onto the earth. Small soft green strings were smooshed beneath me in a tangled cushion. Small droplets of dew clung to the strings below me the tall looming things above me. Slowly as everything came back into focus I sat back up glancing around the area. “Where the hell am I..” Looking up I seemed to notice this rather large orb in the sky that was shaded blue. “Is that the moon? What the hell is going on…” Howls started to echo off in the distance giving me a chill… I don’t have a good feeling about this. Light brown fur suddenly engulfed my entire body keeling over to the ground, fingers slowly morphed into paws with padding and my entire lower jaw grew outwards at the same time. Within seconds I had a long fluffy tail and was on all fours, padding through the forest treading lightly on everything as if I was worried that something would come out and attack me. Off into the distance I could see vibrant glowing purple lights in the sky and what looks like…. comets? The trees started to thin opening up to a little valley. A horrified expression overtook my face as I could see people, and werewolves attacking each other. Explosions of purple and red light came from their hands, shadowy figures would stand by their sides. One of the wolves gaze drifted my direction taking note of my presence. His feet started to float across the ground his fur gliding through the wind. Howling three others somehow appeared by his side. All of them floating across the ground at an amazing speed. Barking at them I started to slowly back away, “Who are you? Where am I?” They answered in response… but I could not understand what they were saying. Adrenaline washed over me giving me a sense of fear. My rear end hit a tree before I turned back to where I came from and started to sprint.
Tree’s flew past me inches from my snout before I manage to dodge them. The others were still on my tail, barking at me some unknown language. Crossing river after river the tree’s finally opened up and now my feet were carrying me across rocks. Suddenly I started to run out of land to run across. The land dropped into the distance. When I finally reached it, below was a water grave, for if I jumped I would either drown from the tidal waves, or I would hit rocks and break every bone in my body. Turning to face them, they made a semicircle around me so I could not get out if I tried to. The largest of the three was a dark brown caramel color that contrasted well with his golden eyes, his fur glistened in the wind and looked rather muscular for a werewolf. His right ear had a small clip in it and the other had a small hooped earring. Inspecting over him i noticed that he had some sort of marking on his left shoulder from what I could see. It looked like… A crescent moon, half covered by his fur. The other two did not have this. The one to the right was almost pure black, with deep blue eyes, and the wolf to his left was a golden shade almost like mine.
A few minutes had passed and they were still circling, my back paw was at the edge of the cliff, if I take one more step I would fall in. They snapped and barked slowly closing in on me. I looked up at the sky and noticed that the moon had reached it’s peak in the sky. It must be midnight. My birthday. Great. The moon started to give off a weird glow, right down onto me. Turning my gaze to the others again the stared at me in shock, almost stunned, their eyes wide. And they… started to bow? They had knelt down even the massively large one knelt down to me, confused I looked at my paws. They were white! What the hell is going on? Turning to look at the rest of my body my fur had turned pure white. Confused I started to panic looking around frantically. I went to take a step back realizing too late that there wasn’t any ground there. I let out a yelp before the rest of my body had followed my paw. It felt just like a movie, where everything slows down and you are panicking. I could see two of the wolves standing on the edge, and right before my body had hit the water, the large one had jumped off the cliff after me. Everything went back….
