By Raven Valentino

Blurb

Geralt was sent to kill a wolf since her parents ordered for her to be killed but once he finds out that she is only a young girl he takes her under his wing and almost becomes a father figure to her and Ciri soon becomes an older sister figure to her. They all care and protect one another, but a wedge is soon driven between Ciri and Phoenix and Geralt is torn between he should save.

Chapter 1

Then...

“I am sorry wolf but I will make this quick, I promise you won’t suffer!” The figure exclaimed.

I circled the figure dressed in ebony, a silver snarling wolf hung around his neck, his sword held low and I knew soon enough I would be breaking that blade between my teeth. My paws thudded against the floor and my claws created sparks. I was dancing with The White Wolf , I raced at him and attempted to bite into his arm, he attempted to swing his blade towards me but I bit into his wrist tearing the muscle, causing him to drop the blade. He then hit me around the face with the metal gauntlet on his other hand splitting my eyebrow. He caused me to back off slightly. I shook my head in disorientation since he had bumped my head pretty hard.

I backed off pining. Once I felt focused I just ran at him again his eyes met mine and I realised he could see into my soul and he realised I was innocent. I only killed the towns people because I was defending myself. His blade still scraped across my stomach regardless causing me to pine and hit the floor with a thud. I pined and I saw him advancing towards me I tried to run but I couldn’t my paws wouldn’t support me.

So I changed into my human form. “You’re a young woman!” He exclaimed.

“No...one told...y...you!” I wheezed.

“No I was told you were a vicious beast and you need to be stopped” he soon lowered his sword and only advanced but I kept backing off, I reached a pond but my blood just began to flow into it. “You’re no monster that I was led to believe” he told me.

He was about to slide his arms under my body to pick me up but I just detested but he nearly dropped me as I wriggled out of his arms.

Now....

“Phoenix get down from there!” Geralt yelled at me as I had climbed a tree in my wolf form, he asked me to see over the horizon so I did. “You know if you fall it’s going to be me who has to heal your wounds again!” He exclaimed.

“Yes who else” I whined.

“How the hell have I put up with you all these years!” He sighed.

“Because I always kill things for you” I smile.

“You know if you don’t come down right now, you can clean my swords, and Roaches tack for two months!” He said sternly. So I just got down from the branches landing on my feet.

“Where are we going?” I asked.

“Novigrad” he answered tightening Roaches girth.

“Why there?” I moaned like a child.

“Because we have a job” he replied. “Can I ride on Roach?” I asked.

“No, you can shape shift so you can run on your paws” he told me.

“Geeeerrrraaaalllltttt” I whined.

“No” he answered.

“Fine” I growled turning into my wolf form, Geralt mounted his steed and kicked his horse in the ribs causing him to rear up and gallop off, so I had to run at his side and the damn witcher knew I hated to run at this pace.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Nate_L: This story is amazing. The style, the description, it all drags you in. The characters are mostly the well known characters from King Arthur. There's Merlin, the sword: Excalibur. I recommend reading this through, at least a little, as it's a very satisfying read. I added it to my reading list af...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

Sandra Leigh: excellent story. Lots of classic fairy tale elements with a fresh spin. Very much looking forward to the sequel. However, there are a number of typos and minor awkward sentences. I occasionally work for my publisher as an editor and would not mind editing this for you. Feel free to contact m...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Ro-Ange Olson: Loved it and couldn't put it down. I really hope there is a sequel. Well written and the plot really moves forward.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

Elizabeth Pau: I have never read a werewolf book before so the whole concept of werewolves was new to me.The overall story is good I suppose, it could be planned out better as I don't think the whole plot is down, which really can harm the story.I assume that English is the second language of the author and I r...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

RubyScars: I absolutely love your story! It killed me when I finished, I read it all at once and then it stopped at the epic cliffhanger! Uggggggh. But, that said, it just means that you have done such a lovely job. I am so in love with your complicated characters, and even the ones I didn't like you slowl...
