The Willow - PrologueI ran. I ran for all I was worth, behind me there was the sound of footsteps. My breath coming fast as I turned a corner quickly. This happened to me all the time, how did love always go wrong for me? Why? Why me? When I saw the park up ahead I increased my stride and climbed up into the high branches of a tree. Tears streamed down my face, I choked back my sobs. He had cheated on me again. Tomorrow I was leaving though. Today was the last day of summer. Tomorrow I would have left to a new school, a new beginning. The memories never left. They would stay forever. I had memories from years ago. From centuries ago. Those I loved died, they always did, I would never love again. In my new town I would not let herself love anyone. And if I did, she would not speak to him. This was the last time I was moving. The last time I would run from them.
I made it to my house without being seen by anyone. Tomorrow I would leave. A new town. A new life. Start all over.
The Eclipse - Chapter 1~ A few years later ~
Too soon. Way too soon. I watched as Soro was burried on Death Mound. And as our new alpha stood and lifted his muzzle to the sky, letting out a howl. My spirit was falling. How could we keep loosing wolves? I still wanted to avenge my father. It was odd how I remembered every single detail of the black wolf. But I did.

As the brown wolf with black eyes stepped out from under the trees he looked at me. "Dez? Where are you going?"
"Hunter, it's none of your buisness. Please just go."
He looked at me "Are you looking for him?"
"Yes Hunter, I am"
"Please don't. Not tonight. The pack would be crushed." He too
The Eclipse - ProlougeTrees loomed around us as darkness fell. When our leader stood at the camp entrance and let out a fierce howl that brought all our fighters out of their dens. I was the youngest. The newest fighter. My black fur ruffled in the wind. We went over to our leader, Scar.
Scar looked at us all, with a silent flick of his ears he slipped out of camp. Everyone following. We raced through our territory. Silent shadows among the dark and looming trees. The forest was silent, as if if knew a war was coming.
I glanced around the forest. Wishing we didn't have to fight. But I knew we had to. I am Desarae. Spirit of the forest. Others call me Dez for short. Loyal fighter of the pack 'Shadows of the Moon'. We are hunters of the night. We live in the shadows. Tonight, though none of us knew it. Was just the beginning of a war. A war that none of us wanted, nor anticipated.
Scar stopped at the top of Death Mound. Death Mound was sacred to our pack. It was where our dead were buried. I saw our beta male
