ELP: Chapter 9I run, I don't know why, but I run. It was all I could manage to do, was run. I could see a wolf catching up to my speed, I realize it was Briar. I begin to slow my pace so he could catch up, but he started speeding up instead. Then I noticed that the remaining wolves from Pack of Fallen Leaves were following him, and all I did was follow them. Shimmer was the next wolf that came into my line of vision. But she didn't speed up, she began to come to my speed and she started getting closer and closer. I then notice that male wolf with the olive back, coming in on my left flank. Ambush, I think quickly, like taking down a deer, you come up on its left and right flank. Oliveback gets closer and so does Shimmer, so right when they try to squish me in between each other I begin to slow down. They clash into each other and I sprint over them. But Shimmer doesn't give up. She gets up and continues her pursuit on me. She just doesn't quit I think to myself. I try to out run her, but that gash i
ELP: Chapter 8"What's going on?" I shout to the nearest warrior, who was running towards a deep grey wolf with olive green marks on his back and face.
"Pack of Fallen Leaves, have attacked us!" he snarls "help us fight, we are outnumbered". I froze, Naya ran toward the Healer's Den. It seemed as if the gods Hati and Skoll have slowed time for their enjoyment. Instincts, I thought to myself, I am going to have to rely on my instincts and they tell me to defend my pack! I run towards a wolf that was running after Naya, who didn't realize that she was being chased. I jump on him and brought him to the ground.
He snarls at me and says "when did they allow pups to fight". It boiled my blood when he called me pup, so I attacked. Being slim and light on my paws, I had the first attack. I grabbed his nap and slammed him onto the ground; he was knocked, so I ran to find Naya. When I got to the Healers Den I found Naya standing between a very wounded and bloody Octavia and a massive female wolf, who was snarl
ELP: Chapter 7"Well looked who showed up, you need to stop getting my apprentice in trouble. I think Naya should be the older one" Octavia says to me with a scowl on her face.
I roll my eyes and say sarcastically "will all of you quit chewing me out; I am here to have you fix me up and do your errands".
Naya comes from the back of the den with some dried red herbs in her mouth and spoke in a muffled voice "we're running low on these Octavia, we're gonna have to get some from Venya. Hey Lana". I give a nod hello and tell her everything that happened with Uncle Crete, while Octavia went into the back to get some herds to fix up my wounds.
"He even brought up the Turtle Rock incident" I say to Naya in a low voice.
"Wow," Naya says to me "Lana, Uncle Crete really cracked down on you".
Octavia finally comes back and says "listen you two, I am running really low on many herbs, especially the ones I need to put on those wounds. So I need you to go to the Pack of Fallen Leaves to see Venya, the healer there
ELP: Chapter 6The hunting party had just arrived right before I headed to Uncle Crete's den, so I thought I'd pick up his dinner for him, maybe so he won't be so mad at me. When I went over and asked for the Chief's meal they gave me a big fat beaver with good meat and a thick pelt. Naya stopped me and said "I'll save you a rabbit" I gave her a thank you grin and headed off to listen to my sentencing.
"Before you enter I will check to see if the chief is busy" the guard at the entrance of Uncle Crete's chief den. The guard turned around and went in, leaving me standing with the beaver hanging in my mouth by its tail. I thought to myself for the short period of time "beaver tails taste so gross", then the guard returned. I slowly walked into the mouth of the den when I heard Uncle Crete bark "ENTER!" I cringe at the angry sound in his voice, which was the first I ever heard his angry tone directed towards me like that. I slowly make my way up to where he is, try
ELP: Chapter 5Of course Uncle Crete begins to howl at me with anger as our healer fixes me and Naya up. The Pack of Flowing Waters wolves began to clear out when I spot Claymore. He walks over to us obviously with a guilty look on his face, but the fighters block his path, then I jump up no matter how much pain I was in and snarl at the fighters until they let him pass.
"Lana!" Uncle Crete shouts at me "why are letting him pass?" his amber eyes glare at me.
"He saved my life Uncle Crete, so I would like to thank him!" I snarl, this takes up a lot of whatever remaining strength from me and I fall to the ground. As I begin to black out I see a wolf that smell like pond lilies lift me up and begin to carry me off.
When I wake up my mouth was as dry as a desert, I sit up to find Claymore sleeping at the opening of my den. As I begin to head out he wakes immediately and looks at me.
He gives me a cool look from his water blue eyes and says
ELP: Chapter 4Claymore wasn't expecting me to lunge at him with such ferocity. By the time he noticed I had made the first move my paws had already made contact with his shoulder. I rolled over and grabbed him by the nap on his neck and yanked him hard, he howls in pain. But as soon as I grabbed his nap, he threw his weight on me making me let go and fall on my butt, I snarl in anger. His water blue eyes have turned hard with pain and anger. He lunges at me, but I quickly get up and side step him. He falls and I jump at him and we find ourselves wrestling one another, but this is no playful wrestle. He yelps when I bite his shoulder, but he manages to put his hind legs under my stomach and kicks me off. Somehow that manages to make a long, deep cut on my right flank; it makes me wince in pain. We circle and I can hear him and I pant, we are both in pain. I try to stand my tallest without making the gash wider, which was now trickling blood. My vision blurred, but I had to stay strong, for Naya. As I
ELP: Chapter 3My eyes slowly opened when the only friend of mine and only other relative I have wakes me up. She went on my first hunt, so she knows about the meeting at Sky Peak. Her name is Naya and she is my sister as well. "Lana, get up we gotta go! Hurry before the night patrol catches us," Naya whispers in my ear with urgency. I jump up remembering tonight's plans. As we creep through our home to the direction of Sky Peak, I think of the elder hunting trainers say how we both are the best hunters in the class and how we make a good team together. Once we made it out of hearing and viewing range of Home Den, we ran as fast as we can to our destination. I look up at Sky Peak and see the silhouette of a bunch of Flowing Water wolves. I give a laugh when I walk up on Sky Peak to see the he-wolf pacing with a nervous look on his face. He seemed absolutely startled, and then changed his face expression to a serious look which made me laugh even more.
"I didn't think you were going to show up, Whispe
ELP: Chapter 2See I am from the Pack of Whispering Fire. There are many packs such as the Pack of Whispering Fire, Pack of Fallen Leaves, Pack of Flowing Water, and Pack of Blowing Wind, Pack of Endless Night, Pack of Crescent Moon, Pack of Blue Sky. The chief of the Pack of Whispering Fire is my uncle, Crete. I am not the next future chief because I am not a direct heir to it. My father and my mother disappeared, in other words they don't care and I was left with my father's brother. So technically, I have been raised by my uncle all my life. My mother had two pups, me and my twin sister Naya. Who knows where they are, from what I had heard they constantly fought and they didn't want me or my sister around.
We finally make it back to our Home Den with a sizable buck that I killed on my own. As I head to my little den, after dinner, this he-wolf from our pack walks over to me and calls my name. His name is Togo, and his father is the wolf to assemble fighters, his mother is a pup sitter for the pack
ELP: Chapter 1Hooves pounded against the leaf covered floor of the woods, as the animal connected to those hooves runs for its life depends on it. A long howl makes the hooved creature shudder with terror. Our paws barely touch the ground as we almost fly across it. The cool evening, wind blows through my fur, as I run after this creature that will be my first kill. I have heard stories of this creature called a caribou, since it is rare to find them now, due to rivaling packs.
"Lana, I need you to stop it from left flank" shouts Crete, Chief of the Pack of Whispering Fire and my uncle.
"Yes, Chief" I call back.
The caribou has this wild look in its eye as it sees me advancing towards it. I take a deep breath and lunge for its exposed flank. My teeth find their mark and I feel them plunging deep into the caribou's side. It gives out a cry of pain as my teeth sink deeper into its flank. When I release, the caribou stumbles and trips over a fallen log, it gives out a wail of pain. I'm about to go and
