He's Old

“Yes, I am a werewolf, as is the rest of my pack.”

“But you look so old.”

“Well to a child I guess I would.” Silver chuckled to himself.

“But why did you help me?” I asked perplexed.

“The same reason why we helped you get all the way here.” Silver replied.


“Yes, me and my mate Silver helped you get all the way here so why would we stop helping now?” said a new voice. I turned towards the door and saw a middle aged woman with startlingly blue eyes step in. She had silver hair, just like Silver.

“Who are you?” I asked.

“My name is Graisa, but you can call me Gray, and I am the mate of Silver.”

“How come I’ve never seen you before, do all of the werewolves in your pack turn into humans or just you, are you goi-” I started.

“All your questions will be answered tomorrow, now you need to get some rest.” Silver spoke up. As I looked out the window I saw it had gotten dark without me noticing, so I decided to oblige them and get some sleep.

The next day I decided that I wasn’t going anywhere until I got some answers. So as I sat down on the bed with my chest puffed up and my face contorted into a suspicious frown I asked Gray,

“So how come I’ve never seen you before?”

“Because I would always come out after you were asleep, so I didn’t scare you more than we already had.” She replied with a grin.

“Are you going to eat me?” I asked again. This time Gray let out a bellowing laugh.

“Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, no I’m not going to eat you. If I wanted to I would’ve done it a long time ago.” She replied after she was done laughing.

“What do you mean?” I asked. I was starting to feel like this was an interrogation, and I liked it.

“Do you remember when you traveled with us, you would always wake up with a blanket around you, even when you didn’t wrap yourself. Or how your bag never ran out of bread or cheese?” Gray asked.

“Yeah.” I said suspiciously.

“Well that was because I had been taking care of you while you weren’t watching. I wanted you to be at least a little comfortable while you were traveling with us.” She said with a triumphant smile.

“Oh, thank you.” was all I said. I had gotten used to things being done for me at the palace, but it was never done with such care before.

“Now that Gray has answered all of your questions, we should get going.” Silver said.

“Go where, I have nowhere to go.” I said.

“Well with us of course, we can’t let you be by yourself and it would be lovely to have a human child around after such a long time.” Gray said. I suddenly felt such a great gratitude for this woman who took care of a stranger she had just met.

“Thank you.” I said, and this time with a beaming smile. And with the smile I showed her, she smiled back.
