I heard them coming closer. I knew they would be coming, that it was only a matter of time. Slowly the wolves from my pack flanked us; I felt the comforting presence of them inside my mind. And I knew without a doubt that I would protect them with my life, looking to my right I saw the ones who I never thought I would find or see again. To my left my sister who was to young and innocent to be in a battle like this.
Looking forward, I lowered myself into a battle stance, with my head close to the ground and my teeth showing as a continuous growl vibrated my chest. The enemies were getting closer, the ones who had captured me, tortured my kind and myself and now were threatening my pack and the ones I loved.
Twigs snapped and voices told commands to one another. They emerged from the tree line, with their guns pointed at us. I raised my eyes to the man in front of me; I gave a wolf grin as he raised his gun level at my head. I heard a furious growl from my right and without a doubt I knew who it was from as chills ran down my spine.
The next second I heard 'Attack' sent through the packs mind link. Growls rumbled through the air as I lunged off the ground and leapt for the throat of the one who had started it all, the one who fired his gun right at my heart when my paws left the ground.
My name is Valerie Emerson and this is my story.
