I really hate moving around and across realms, but I could get over that as new places gave me new adventures to explore. What I can't stand is the fact that I have to attend school at each new place as well. Hopefully we don't have to stay here for long since I'm almost done with my senior high education. I also hate living in the city. Mostly because you can't just shift for a run when you need to get away from my crazy family.
Being a shifter of an Alpha bloodline is bad enough with all the territorial attitudes and dominance behaviours. Why did we also have to be elemental twins stuck on earth with these humans as well!. These beings have an annoying tendency to just poke at your emotions carelessly. You have no idea how hard it is being a teenager with all these hormones driving you crazy. Now I have to put up with humans and their constant touching, hand-holding, and hand slapping norms. And yet, we are the ones that get punished with daily meditation training by gramps to master our emotions.
I know this is vital because any sudden outbursts in our emotions could set an immediate vicinity on fire or cause thunderstorms. But we are also not allowed to rip off people's heads when they cross the line. I am so sick and tired of this. I will definitely have to opt for a college far from the city just to have some solitude if we need to stay here much longer. Sorry if I have you confused. I am Zenos, but my friends and family call me Zen. My twin brother Zainel and I are the first set of twins to be born to the royal alpha family in this era.
Let me clarify things a little more for you because
I know you may have heard alot of things about werewolves, our social traits and how our kind was created to protect other vulnerable mythical creatures including humans. But even within our small race, there are a few specials that are rare and can be dangerous which includes the true Alpha's of old from Africa. I come from a bloodline of shifters that are very special among wolves since we are direct descendants of the first werewolves. Our kind are stronger than most wolves as we are born with Alpha traits and innate abilities to control various natural elements in this universe.
Legend has it that my family in particular are the direct descendants of the first wolves the moon goddess ever created. With so many vulnerables to be protected, the goddess created two male wolves and one female bonded them. She imbued them with her own magic which enabled them to control their environment more easily as they were few. The unexpected happened when both men fell in love with their only female as they had no other females to choose from. They therefore agreeded to both love her equally and share her with each other. She got pregnant with the first pups around a time of war between some leaders of the mythical realm and humans. As it was their duty to protect the weak, the two wolves had to do whatever it took to protect the humans from the shadows. This put them in the limelight of the vampires and succubus clan. They hid their luna in the human realm and went to battle where one died protecting his brother. The second brother managed to escape by causing an unexpected earthquake. He returned to her just when she was in labor and held her through the pains of child birth. Unfortunately, he died from an unhealing battle injury meted by the Succubus queen just a few weeks after the birth of their sons. Having been impregnated by two Alphas, she had a set of twins that shared similar alpha traits to their fathers and elemental powers also. She raised the kids in secret and passed down the legend of their fathers before her death from the broken heart of missing her mates in their early twenties.
To keep the pack strong and growing, the moon goddess fashioned special partners for each of them. To each, she made a mate whose presence and attributes increased the strength and powers of their alpha partners when they are fully mated. By finding their mates, the wolf clans came into full existence and has continued to grow till date. The bloodlines diversified over the decades and most pups in later centuries were born without elemental powers as they had strengths in their pack. However, in some very special instances, a set of twins are born once in a millennium who possess the powers and abilities of the first alphas. They become leaders of various special royal task forces because of their alpha traits and help protect the pack from unforseen danger".... Or so our gramps told us on our 11th birthday.
Our abilities start poking its head when we turn 5 years old and this means raising children from my family bloodline is harder than raising children of any other race. Simple tantrums can create rainstorms and unwanted natural disasters. So how did we survive this long and go unnoticed? Well, that's because there are not a lot of us on earth. Oh sorry I forgot to mention we can travel across realms. And whiles human realm is our favorite place to live since it's more welcoming, most of our kind prefer alternate realms where they get to rule as the Alpha's they were meant to be.
Legend has it that after finding his mate on a warriors trip to the hunan realm decades ago, my great great great grandfather had chosen to establish his family on earth to be closer to her. In addition to the fact that he didn't want to change his mate ( a dangerous process which requires the help of a witch and fae with 50/50 chance of death if the human is incompartible), he had made a justified case to his parents about how having a home in an alternate realm will help expand their pack's territory among humans. As children from their realm are born in pairs (popularly know on earth as twins) with alpha traits, there was a growing need to expand their territories to reduce the fighting rates and bring more peace. The upside is that there was never a shortage of Alpha replacements to lead packs in the absence or death of one. All the children born to our family are raised as Alpha's and trained separately from the others. Also as a warrior race, each child born to the specialize in a specific field of interest with equal responsibility as you become the alpha of your chosen unit in other cities and realms after your graduation.
Gramps had included living on earth through our teenage years as part of our training since mimickry and assimilation are elective courses for joining the stealth force. As my gramps headed the stealth force, it was always my dream to become the best spy and replace him. Zain wants to be an assassin like dad but hates living with dad in the demon realm. So we both moved in with gramps at 13years old and have stayed with him among the humans till date. Unfortunately, we still need to train in combat and intelligence collection and Zain has to spend 3 months every year (summer vacation) with dad in the demon realm for his assassin training. Gramps is training me on royal duties and etiquettes to be the Alpha King against the wishes of mom who thinks I am already bossy enough without the additional tips on how to exert my dominance.
Now that you are all caught up, lets get back to the story.
