They sniffed out Scarlet Light's house. They found it. It was pretty far. It took them about 25 minutes to go there. Once they went. The view was horrid. It had dead grass and an old bent fence with bats all over, even cracked windows. Coral howled, thinking that she is formed into a wolf and she'll howl back. Dakota gave her a weird look and Coral looked back at her as if saying, "You'll see." In a few minutes, they heard a howl, but a human howl. They looked at each other hesitantly, and they walked there, they turned back to humans and they took out their swords. They walked near the house. Midnight howled again as if she understood. A human howled pierced their ears. They got to the room. Their swords were waiting to taste blood. They opened the door cautiously. And they peeked out waiting to see the wolves and Scarlet. But they were mistaken, Lane in human form with tape on her mouth and her hands and feet were tied really tightly. It looked painful. She looked as if she was drugged. Her head was drooped and she looked tired. There was a knife with blood sitting 6 feet away from her. As soon as their eyes took in all that, they went straight to helping her. Coral took away the ties. Dakota ripped at the tape and Midnight licked her trying to wake her up. Once all that was done. They waited 5 anxious minutes. So silent that they could almost hear their own racing heartbeats. And then Lane woke up. She was still on the dusty ground. She looked around her and her expression softened as she saw the girls and her pet, Midnight. Midnight went over to her and sat next to her. Lane tried to get up, but she groaned as she tried. Her baby blue long hoodie was a crimson red colour near her stomach. Dakota looked at the knife she saw earlier, it had blood. Was that the knife Lane got stabbed with? "Hey, Lane, are you okay?" Dakota asked. "Yes, I'm fine." Lane said. She tried to get up again, but failed. They helped her up. She looked at both of them again. "Did we meet before?" She asked. "Well, not really. Scarlet Light, the Alpha of the Dark Shadows pretended to be you and she took us in your house and left us there. We took Midnight and got out of the house, by falling 20 feet in the air! And then somehow, we turned to Hokets by Midnight's MoonPendant touching us." Coral explained. They sat down again and just thought about what to do next. 5 minutes later and Lane's MoonPendant started gleaming a lot. And then Lane started coughing. She turned back into a wolf. But not like the one they saw at the cemetery, this one looked more glorious, but evil. Coral and Dakota were shocked. But their astonishment went away when Lane the wolf charged at them, she scratched Coral in the cheek leaving a fresh mark of 4 stripes, it started bleeding. Coral had no idea what happened, but she stayed strong, just for her sister. Dakota got a scratch on her eyelid. It looked like it would keep a scar there for a while. It bled too. The girls had no idea what happened. Lane had no idea either. She went back to human form and stared at the girls for a long while. Then she said, "Girls, I'm really sorry for what just happened. I don't know what is going on. But, my MoonPendant is starting to lose its power. Without the moon to keep it charged, I might as well, be a piece of-" Lane paused before she said anything too far. "Sorry, I'm just so mad. Scarlet kidnapped me because she wants to be Alpha of the Dark Shadows, but I am the leader. But now, since she has all the power. There's nothing I can do about it." She explained. Dakota took a deep breath and said, "Well, you guys all have MoonPendants, why do you have to be Alpha, there's really nothing special about it." Dakota said. "That's where you're wrong. The Alpha has a special MoonPendant. The Moon gives half its power to the Alpha. But when you're just a normal wolf, you have to go outside at night all the time to get some power." Lane explained. "Oh." Dakota said plainly. Her mark was still bleeding and it made her whole hoodie smeared with blood. "Anyways, we have to try and get to Scarlet before the month ends. If it does, 5 more months until we fight. But if we catch her, we still have an opportunity." Lane said. They broke free and left.
