Dusk and Dawn

My name is Unite, I come from the Dusk pack, past the rugged walls of the cliffs and through the crossing river of Alicai. Our enemy pack, Dawn pack. They were the hunters of light, the so called "Angels.". They were the beloved of all packs, and we were not. We were called the night's shadow or the evil. I was told this by my father, the alpha of the pack. I soon grew a immense hatred of them, and never hesitated to kill. 
Here I was at the territory camp, it was dark but cosy, our eyes had brilliant night vision and we hunted at night. I was born there, my parents loved me all so much and soon I opened my eyes. They were a beautiful indigo shade, no wolf had this eye colour. As I grew up, I bonded with my friends, their names were River and Eryn. 
One day, my mother became awfully sick, a sickness I'm sure will be fatal. Her eyes were pale, dry and her fur turned gray, we soon discovered she wasn't with us. Our elder, Dare, knew about this...disease. He said it was spreading around the western wolves for a while and that the body must be removed before sunrise. My father and I cried for a while, never saw him cry, an alpha never cries. We were about to prepare a memorial speech to the pack, until we heard the commands. 
We took her to the river, layed her onto the cold glistering water and saw her wash away into the darkness. They said the Alicai Rivers were a gate to peace and rest. My father became darker each day, he had no one to love. His anger soon turned to rage and didn't recognise me as a son anymore. I felt his pain, and everyday I passed through his anger, I became slowly dark too. My friends saw this, they were afraid of me now and refused to play. I didn't realise, I didn't want anyone to hate me and then I grew lonely and evil. The story father told me was true, we are evil.
Though my darkness remained, my spirit didn't want to leave, at times I felt...happy. I trained well and was disciplined to the point of my leadership was in thought. I walked pass River and Eryn, they backed away slowly. What was it? What did I seem like? Why? I ran to the river and watched the water calm and flatten. I looked at myself, my eyes were red, what happened to my eyes? 
My back was a light brown colour, below was white and the dots and paterns of fur were scattered around me. The water became rough once more and my reflection soon disappeared. The water was never this rough, it's usually running calmly. The river became a muddy brown and didn't have its beautiful glister anymore. I looked onto the water, my eyes widened as I saw my mother. I dipped my paw into the water, she disappeared and when she did, a dark, black-fured wolf was there. I checked behind me of who it was, no one was there. I soon looked at my paws, they were pitch black.
I backed away in fright, was I turning...evil? I came back to camp and entered hell. They were dead, all dead and not by any disease. They were brutally murdered, scars and blood flooded the floor. I saw my father, River, Eryn and all the wolves laying there, bloody and pale. I went up to them but a painful feeling pierced me, as if I were to be pierced by claws. Tears filled my eyes and I ran as far away as possible. I shut my eyes, I didn't realise where I was and I kept thinking that didn't matter. I was lost, in hope and in my way, I didn't deserve to live if everyone else didn't.
I ran into a fence which left a horrible scar onto my muzzle. This was the fence, the fence of the human's slaughter trap and on the other side of it, i saw a young wolf. A she-wolf, she looked frightened, she was in the Dawn pack but, she was absolutely beautiful. She did look like an "angel". Her eyes were blue, her fur was a beautiful white and black. My eyes gazed at her, I soon fell in...love. As I continued gazing at her, she looked back. I felt dizzy, a bad dizzy. My head ached and I fell onto the ground, eyes wide open. 
She reacted and decided to somehow help. I saw her scratching at the fence, it was all blury. I thought to myself of how and why would she do that? I closed my eyes and fell unconciously.
