RUNNING THE LAST MILE
I’ve always been on the run.
Ever since I can remember.
Always running. I don’t know why, but I like that way.
And that’s how I reached the last mile.
In this white room, at the local hospital, I just couldn’t manage to be shocked. I knew that sooner or later I would die. Since the pack’s doctor discovered I had lung cancer I had a felling it would turn out like this.
At first, he thought I could heal the cancer. It was not unusual for werewolves to get sick, but the animal within us made it rather unlikely for the disease to spread and be deadly.
Unfortunately, my wolf gave up long time ago. I guess everyone was surprised how I handle my problems so far. Specially John. He usually was the strong one, and he even told me months ago he was jealous of my inter strength.
What he doesn’t know is that he is not the only one who was devastated. I’m so torn up inside that I don’t how I manage to even breathe most of the times. I guess I won't have to endure breathing for so long, though.
I’m going to die.
John doesn't understand; he's my best friend and for all that we've gone through together our bond only grew stronger. We tried to pretend to just blow it off and give up, but neither of us did. Well, I didn't at first. He will hate me for a while when I tell him the truth.
My human side keeps still to preserve the remained creaks of myself, but my animal side, the one that belong to the wolf inside of me; that part of me is dying, little by little. Everyday I open my eyes and my pain numbs me. I was hurt so badly by the only person who could break me entirely.
My mate was chosen to truly love me, search for me until we would fit perfectly into each others arms. But the decision that I have to wake up to everyday is the one he made. To leave me alone.
“Anne, did you hear me?” doctor Mark asked me, his face concerned.
“Yes.” That was the only answer I was ready to give. My voice was dull; that was the only tone my throat could handle.
After two weeks of daily exams when we first found out I had lung cancer, I got started on chemotherapy, which made me crave to just give up already. When the surgeries came they only showed themselves useless. That was a part of me that was already gone and it didn’t matter what they did; I wasn't going to heal.
“Anne, how can you look so calm when I tell you that you’re dying?” Mark seemed to be about to cry. He, like all the others, loved me and wished to protect me, despite everything.
“Could I be the one to tell the pack? I think they would prefer it that way” It didn’t matter how I felt all the time or what I would fool to tell myself about what the future brought; I would miss them. They were the reason I've lasted for this long.
He breathed in and out slowly and let a single crystal tear fall. Man, this was going to be harder than what I expected. “Of course you can, honey.”
“Thank you, Mark.” I sighed and walked away from that exams on his desk.
Once away from the hospital I went straight to the woods, took of all my clothes behind a tree and transformed; I need to feel the run.
I need the speed. The wind. The smells.
Soon enough that would all be gone from my life.
I cried when I saw my house. For what? For the rejection, the lost of what I never had. For what was always mine or, on another thought, never really was.
My perfect ending would have to be solo. It would have to be enough.
The final line was just about to grasp me.
I’m running. Running until it falls dark.
I was running the last mile of my life.
(I would looooove to hear what you think about the prologue or the idea for the story!!! This is my first story here on Wattpad, but I've been writting here on Brazil for a long time. I had the idead a while ago, but just now I decided to upload. The story is basically all planed. The end is already written, as some other parts. If you find any mistake on the spelling or grammar mistakes, please, let me know.)
