After I had to leave Aiden to join my pack last night, everyone in my family treated me like I was a goddess or a queen. They respected me in ways I'm not used to. All I knew was that my wolf form was pure white and I have a pair of bright blue eyes. I don't feel very much different. I spent the rest of the night running through the trees with my cousins. Being a wolf is exactly what it I thought it would be like and more. The breeze through my fur is sensational and the moonlit trees of a beautiful vista are even more detailed in wolf form. It felt like another world that before I had only visited in my dreams. This is the best sixteenth birthday ever.
In the morning I got home after I changed back. Mum was cooking pancakes for breakfast when I walked in the door. She looked up and saw me as I began to climb the stairs.
"Natalie, can you down here for a sec please." Mum asked.
"Sure what's up? Do you need help with something?" I replied.
"No, it's not like that. You know how your wolf is white." I nodded and she continued. "There is a legend of the white wolf in the history of our people. A white wolf was more power and strength than any other wolf. The only time one exists is when a great battle is coming and they become great leaders. They are extremely rare. The last one was around about two hundred years ago." She picked up an old dusty book off the island in the kitchen and handed it to me. "This will explain most of it. Just remember it is a great honour to be the white wolf." She went back to making her pancakes.
I looked down into my hands at the book. The withered brown leather was covered in layers of dust. Inscribed into the leather was 'O mýthos tou lef̱koú lýkou', there was something else below it in English and I wiped the dust off the cover to see 'The Legend Of The White Wolf'. I decided to take it up stairs into my room to read after breakfast. I came into my room and put it on my bedside table. When I was little my granddad used to tell me stories, I faintly remember them now. I can remember something about the white wolf tale, it was that they had more powers for example bring power to their pack and one other thing was something to do with a witch vampire hunter that don't occur in time that often.
I ran down stairs into the kitchen my dad and Brother Matthew was already sitting at the island eating their breakfast. I sat down next to dad. My placed a plate of pancakes in front of me and I dug in.
"How's it going there, Squirt?" Dad nudged me with his shoulder.
"Alright, dad." I smiled through a mouth full of pancakes.
"Going to school today," He joked.
"Dad, do I have to go today? I've got some research to do."
"I guess you can get away with it just this one time."
"Thanks dad." I finished my pancakes and went up stairs. I heard Matt trying to get out of school as well but dad said that I was allowed to since it was my first full moon.
"But it's my first full in a month." he moaned. I giggled.
"You know what I meant and you will be going to school today. It's only another two days till the weekend. I'm sure you can last that long." I picked up 'The Legend Of The White Wolf' and opened it to the first page. At first I couldn't read it since it was all in another language but when I looked again the letter change and moved until I could make it out as English. I began to read.
The first White Wolf lived in the time of ancient greece. The White Wolf was created to keep the balance of peace between all supernatural creatures. A White Wolf will be born on a day of the year that doesn't exist most of the time. They only come to be when a great war is about to come between the supernatural creatures. They are the only ones that can read this book as it has been enchanted so only White Wolves can read it. White Wolves have the ability to read, write and speak ancient Greek. Can sire other werewolves, mask the presents of werewolves in a large area and can shift whenever they like after their first transformation. They will meet their soulmate at sixteen years of age. The soul mate has great influence over the White wolf and can change their decisions if they don't let the White wolf make the decision themselves. White Wolves are gifted with great decision making, a friend that is both a witch and vampire hunter, greater strength and the ability to share greater power in battle but the first White Wolf was not trained by a witch, vampire hunter and was trained by the great Kikimora. The first White Wolf finished his jobs and was foretold that he would lose a close friend, a family member and be betrayed by a friend. This will happened to all White Wolves of present, past and future. All White Wolves are trained by a witch, vampire hunter.
The first White Wolf was created by the most powerful witch of that time period and the spell that will be forever lasting unless broken. The witches name was Kikimora a good witch who was known for helping the supernatural while she was alive. Her death came sudden as she was murdered by a vampire. Not long before her death did she envision the future and saw that the White were going to be hunted and killed by the vampires as they did know how to use their powers. Beyond the grave she contacted other witches for centuries until she found one powerful enough to do her will and take her revenge on the vampires. She told the witch how to create a creature that could hunter vampires with more strength and speed than the average vampire. After the witch had cast the spell, Kikimora asked for one more thing which was to change her original spell on White Wolves, but this came with great consequence. Kikimora had to reveal how to undo the original spell, the witch was trustworthy. The chosen witch changed the spell so the White Wolves would have a witch, vampire hunter to teach them how to fight and control their powers. The witch Kikimora had chosen was in great danger. The vampires knew that there was a witch who knew how to undo the curse and were looking for the witch. They didn't want ultimate vampire hunters around. The witch cast another spell to hide herself from the vampires but they had already found her. She would not break the curse for them and cursed those vampires with conscience. They killed her and years later those vampires were so guilt ridden with all the innocent they had killed and sacrificed themselves to the sun to end the long torment. Therefore the White Wolves and witch, vampire hunters still exist and will continue to exist as long as they are needed.
That is it. I guess I didn't expect a lot out of a book that is only hand book size. It explained a lot but it didn't tell me who the witch, vampire hunter was. Except maybe, Sam. Oh my gosh, it's Sam. It must be, but I think she doesn't know it. Maybe she knows that she is already a vampire hunter but not the witch part. I think I will go over to her house later and try and sort this all out, probably after school is finished. Now I have the whole day to myself. Mum has left for work and dad has already left to take care of the farm. I am exhausted; I lay on my bed looking at the ceiling. I guess I'll have to tell my parents about my mate from the Fylakas pack and maybe that he is Alpha would be a good idea as well. My mind wandered on until I drifted into a restful sleep.
