Beginning of Hell
I hide in the trees breathing heavily from running. My whole body was shaking like an earthquake while my heart beat crazily. I just don’t know what to do, from what I can see through the tree line my pack house will be gone by morning. Shouts and screams of agony echo out around me as there burned alive or murdered by them. I climb higher up in the tree trying to keep myself from shaking to bad from the cold nights air. I climb up onto a large branch the flames of my burning pack visible now, licking up not the night sky. Tears run down my cheeks as I look down at my side. Three large claw marks slicing from my ribs down to the bottom of my stomach. Every time I inhale more of my blood is pushed out as another wave of agonizing pain washes over me. I sniffle trying to keep in the tears and my runny nose from falling.
All this destruction came out of no where, leaving my pack helpless as those men came after us. I’m lucky I’m small or I wouldn’t have been able to escape that giant grey wolfs claws and run under him just fast enough to get into the woods and hide just as mommy told me to. My mom, I hope she’s okay I don’t want to lose her. I know that my father is dead ,I saw him run in front of a wolf as he called to me and said to run, I watched his throat get ripped out by that evil grey one. My dad had died protecting me from that horrible wolf.
The snapping pain in my chest hits me as that painful familiar feeling hits me. All night ive experienced the bond between each and everyone of my pack member’s snap like one of my own bones. Which meant only one thing ,my mother, father ,and rest of my pack was dead.
I’m snapped out of my thoughts when I notice I haven’t heard the screams for a while, they’ve finally stopped the butchering of my pack and only the sounds of the burning building and the crickets break the silence. As my eyes watch my only home burn my ears pick up the body shaking howl of their Alpha. The vibration from his howl would have made me curl in submission if I wasnt also born to an alpha. Alpha’s were always intimidating, and yet my daddy was so kind. He didn’t steal or murder other packs like other’s do. He always said we were all brother’s and sister’s I the Moon Goddesses eyes. But now it didn’t matter, he was gone and I’m alone. A chill begins to sweep through the trees and I struggle to pull down my bloodied and ripped sleeves. The bottom half of my shirt was ripped and bloody. As I stare at my bloodied hands I finally let my tears fall, I’m alone now. All alone.
The only hope I have left is that my best friend ,Roman got away while his dad the alpha fought the intruders. When the attack began I was told to keep him safe and hide him. I don’t know why they attacked us but the one thing I was sure of was that I needed to protect him. Mommy always told me to watch out for the ones we care about so I had to watch out for him. Hopefully he stayed hidden from those bad men. I just didn’t think that me helping roman would end with my parents being torn into pieces by that pack.
I sit on the branch with tears sliding down my cheeks as my eyes don’t leave the necklace roman gave me last summer when we met, he thought Id forget him. I wouldn’t he’s my best friend and we both promised to stay together last summer on his seventh birthday, the same night he changed for the first time. That was a common thing for alphas of big packs like him. When we met he said we were mates and I don’t understand what it means but I’m pretty sure it means we are best friends so I had to protect him.
when I asked mommy she said she would tell me after my first change into a wolf. So before we parted for the summer he gave me his golden necklace that had a moonstone shard on it. I didn’t want him to leave me I was really sad that he had to leave since we had just met, but mommy said we would see each other next summer. I didn’t want him to forget me either so I gave him my ring I had gotten last month when I turned six claiming that its what big girls wear, it was gold too, but mine had my initials, they were G.S, which meant Gabrielle Sparrow. I really liked that ring but I didn’t want roman to forget me.
My thoughts are disrupted when I hear people stomping around in the forest, I’m not to sure if I should hide from them, but to be safe I’ll stay on the branch until I know they wont hurt me. That is until a growl from the ground under the tree startles me and I fall. The ground is cold as I hit it snapping the twigs and leaves under me. I’m scared to move ,and when I finally open my eyes a large man is standing on my side looking down at me, he was old with a long grey beard and his eyes were pitch black.
My thoughts instantly began to think of ways he will kill me, my pack members would always say not to trust other wolfs who aren’t in the pack, mostly because they didn’t care if they killed us, they always thought it was all fun and games. As if the old man can tell what I’m thinking he smiles and says, "I don’t think you should be out here ,you are far to pretty with your blue eyes and long brown hair to be wondering around in the dark ,oh, and I won't kill you I have a better plan on what I want to do with you!” He let out a laugh as he went to grab me.
He grabs my arm and pulls me with him, it hurts to walk or even breath. My body must be losing to much blood from the claws marks I have. I stumble as we leave the forest and I see a black truck on a dirt road and as I’m pulled right towards it, from then on I knew what was about to happen wouldn’t be good and that I will wish I was dead and with my parents. Dread settled over me and I knew I was gonna be lost forever.
