The sound of someone running, the fallen branches that were being stepped on as a white she-wolf was indeed in a rush, ran the fastest it could.
A strong wind blew on the wolf's face, making her howl as she experienced this new feeling. It felt like more than just running. Her insides were tingling with excitement as she thought that it was amazing. She felt somehow free.
She always wondered why the other wolves liked transforming so much, even if they did not need to. At first, it felt like hell, but now that she thinks about it, It's worthwhile enough.
The white wolf came to a halt when she saw the group of werewolves gathering near the territory's borderline.
Everyone turned their eyes on that white she-wolf and gasped in surprise once they recognized who it was.
"Aesthelia?" Someone asked.
Their eyes widened as they gazed at her wolf form. Everyone seemed to be dazed, as if a rare wolf was here.
Aesthelia is slowly regaining consciousness. She felt her hand wrapped in someone's warmth.She tried to lift her finger, but she couldn't seem to do it. Aesthelia hears loud whispering and chattering discussing what happened. Once Aesthelia fluttered, her eyes opened. She was greeted by a bunch of werewolves in the room. They were anxiously waiting for Aesthelia to wake up, and some of them were displeased as they misunderstood Aesthelia's. "Isn't it that she is making a fuss? It is so obvious that it makes me want to vomit, " unfamiliar voice said. "We're at a crucial time, but everyone has been paying attention to this girl," another voice replied, not bothering to hide the hint of annoyance in her voice. "But who wouldn't? Didn't you see what she had done? " Another voice chimed in, a more cheerf
The werewolves were marching their way toward the borderline. They were commanded to aid the people outside in broad daylight. They didn't transform because they were sent to provide essential items to those affected by the attack. The vampires were nowhere to be found once the sun rose. They were in their hiding places, and plus, they have been causing chaos outside the pack for days now. Aesthelia is sure that they are exhausted and will lay low to regain their energy for the time being. Aesthelia knows now is the perfect time to go, but she's still worried. Those who are outside the pack aren't wolves; they are different, and they have already refused the pack's offer to stay inside the shield. Not to mention, the shield also didn't allow other species inside the shield. It'll weaken them. Aesthelia was in the crowd. She was sent by the alpha the moment she woke up. Of course, at first she declined, but who is she to disobey an order from someone as
A few days have passed since the day they were sent and assigned to aid the people outside. They came back without getting injured, and fortunately, they didn't encounter a vampire or a rogue on their way. Aesthelia has been continuously going back and forth from Rasc's residence to the pack house with only one goal in mind. She continued to pursue the high-ranking wolves in order to assess how they would deal with the enemy once they returned. "No, don't concern yourself any further, Aesthelia. It's a no, "an elder said. The elderly man greeted Aesthelia with a sour face. Aesthelia pursed her lips tighter at the strong refusal from someone she expected would listen. They were supposed to be listening. Aesthelia felt like she was being treated like a child and an outsider by the elders. All she wanted was to take precautions and make advancements in terms of battling the vampires. "I am confused," Aesthelia whispered
The more silence passes, the more it gives Aesthelia reason to overthink. She wonders what they have to talk about, that it has to be in private.When they arrived in a secluded area within the woods, Aesthelia stood there unmoving as she waited for him to talk. Her eyes examined Flo's features, and she could see some sweat forming on his forehead.He's nervous.'It must be something hard to say, isn't it?' Aesthelia mumbled through her mind.A minute passed before Flo finally gained the courage to spill what had been bothering him ever since he went outside and got back inside."I gathered this information while I was fighting with a vampire. Fortunately, I was able to escape before it could get worse, "Flo said, the worry and terror visibly in his eyes. He couldn't manage to say that he was almost facing death."Someone within the pack has been in contact with vampires. I've been trying to search for more clues, but
The sounds of the forest, the fragrance of the trees, the sunlight beaming through the leaves, as well as the fresh, pure air, all soothe in a comforting sense. Aesthelia strided her way through the trees. The air blew from east to west. It had been peaceful ever since the high-ranking wolves and warriors departed to handle the situation outside the pack. Aesthelia was quietly going around as she closed her eyes to feel the fresh air. She was having some time for herself when she felt like she had stepped on something. She knew from the feeling that it wasn't a rock or anything that you could find in the forest, but rather she had stepped on someone. Aesthelia's eyes fluttered open as soon as she heard the sound of someone groaning in pain, and that confirmed it, that indeed she was incredibly rude. Aesthelia is panicking right now as to how she will deal with it. Aesthelia stared at the person underneath the tree of aegis. The train
Everyone fell into silence at that. They hitched in their breath as soon as the words left the wolf messenger's lips. The three of them hope that there's something wrong with their hearings and instead hope that the wolf was lying. even if Aesthelia already knew. "I—" The messenger wolf broke down, remembering what happened. The three of them fell into silence as the messenger wolf, who looked tough, was now crying. They were charging towards the group of vampires when the chaos broke through. It's a mess, and the werewolves are at a disadvantage. It seemed like the vampires had been watching the werewolves for days. They don't scent and they're unnoticeable, which makes it harder to sense their presence. Vampires planned everything and it worked out. "You need to rest. We will ask you more once you fully recover, "Aesthelia said, as she assisted the injured wolf. Gior was the first one who left the room, storming outside a
Aesthelia goes back to the training ground. She sat on the lowest branch of a large tree. For the first time in a long time, the wind blew, which made her eyes shut tightly to let herself relax for the first time."Custos, can you tell me the future?" Aesthelia asked the spirit who was quietly standing right beside her.Aesthelia summoned Custos for a reason that she wasn't sure of. She may have wanted to have someone beside her. She'd love a quiet, peaceful place, but every time she has it, there's no doubt that she is uncomfortable and at unease.Aesthelia already knew the answer. Her death, Flo's fate, and more, proved that there could be change. Aesthelia just wanted to hear from Custos what his answer was."I'm afraid I can't.""I don't have the ability to foresee the future," Custos responded with all honesty."But there's one thing that I know: the future can be changed accordingly, and it follows the present, "Custo
The loud sound of mourning erupted through the hall. The funeral is happening. After a day when the warriors returned, Aesthelia didn't waste any time making this happen.Gior and Flo were having a hard time with the news. They are tough guys, but, of course, they also have emotions. They are probably alone and weeping.Aesthelia felt the need to comfort them, but she couldn't. There's something she must do before that. She needed to stay strong for the pack. Aesthelia became the third-in-command. She didn't want it to be official. She was still hoping that the high-ranking wolves would escape from the vampire grasp.Aesthelia talked to Alpha Rou before their departure. She thought that it would change even a bit of the trade strategy.Most warriors recovered, but unfortunately, some took their last breath and came back as lifeless corpses. The only thing they could do was prepare a proper funeral burial to pay tribute to their bravery.
