In the forest. Alone and afraid. My temperature was sky high and I hadn't a clue where I was.One thing I did know was that I was on the brink of changing. I didn't know how to feel. I was half excited and half afraid. It would be my first time and there was no-one to hold on to for support. My father once told me that i was going to change one day. I disagreed thinking I was human. Maybe not.
I spent the rest of my life waiting for this moment so badly. Now that it had come I wasn't sure whether I wanted it anymore.
I got up on my feet and wondered further into the forest. Maybe Dad bought the new house so close to here because he knew.
I remembered that magical moment, as a child, watching, from my bedroom window, as my father changed. He was beautiful. My mother was so unaware of what she had married. So was I, before I turned seven.
I tripped over a tree root and feel into the moonlight. And, before I knew it, I started to change.
I padded throught the plains, Dan at my side. It was good to feel me again. It was a long time since I changed to wolf. Stress free... Until... Dan skidded to a halt and barked something at me.
" Someone new. Changing. Southern end of Forest. We need to get there... NOW."
So we turned round and flitted as fast as we could.
The air around us changed as we grew nearer to the south. I could smell fear. We looked around for any sign of movement. None. Until we heard a loud whining at least ten foot away. I barked into the moon. A bark came back. We ran towards it.
" What should we do ?"
"I dont know. Should we talk to her?"
"Her?! How do you know it's a her?
"Oh come on Daniel! Couldn't you tell?"
"Oh it doesn't matter..."
We reached the wolf. She was so beautiful. Her white fur glistening like snow in the moonlight. She was panting heavly.
Her voice appeared in my head.
" Help me..."
