The Chase (in edit!)

My name is Anavella Richards, and I'm 16. Oh, and I'm also a werewolf!
My parents' names are Arabella and Draker Richards. They decided to follow the trend of weird names that you'll never find on a keychain.
My mom and dad met and mated at an event called, "The Chase." "The Chase," is a place, an arena per say, where unmated males and females who are now of the age for mates, go to find their other half.
As a woman, you are seen as the prey. (Ridiculous, I know. I am just as strong as any guy.) In the event, females are set out into the woods and their male, if they are mated to one at this time, chases them in search of their mate. Hence the name, "The Chase." If you, as the prey, can remain unseen and unmated by the end of the night, you are free.
There are exceptions of course:
1) You have to return every year following the first event and redo the run until you are mated, but winning will still buy you your freedom for another year... so its worth it.
2) Not everyone will have a mate at the event, so the same idea goes for you. You remain unmated, you won't be bothered until the following year.
Our government in human terminology is actually a kingdom. Under the reign of our king and queen, it is specified that "No wolf, male or female, should live life without a mate. You will return every year until you are mated to your match. If thirty years pass and you are still unmated, you will be sentenced to death as you can not procreate and hold no value to our kingdom".
The worst part about the ordeal... is that tomorrow is the day I leave for the event.

"What an... umm, imagination!" - My teacher
