Disaster has struck!
I run out of Diveen, my paws seeking freedom from the loneliness once more. I love it in Diveen, really I do. I just miss Acheron and my family. The good thing is I have Maddox and Lucid there now but Lucid hasn't even come to see me and Maddox is becoming the warrior I always knew he could be. He reminds me so much of his father. I wish I could get to know Lucid the way I'm starting to know Maddox. I want a relationship with my family. They're all I've got now. I try to stay out of the way for the pack. Heyel is making a lot of progress. It's like he's not even retired as alpha male. He still looks out for the young assassins and gives them tasks to do. He still goes out on secret missions himself. I saw him sneak out the other night with the former alpha of Paracon, Devil May Cry.
I'm the Master Healer but I feel like I'm nobody now. I'm helping out with Micteca but I avoided Heyel and the girl he brought back to Diveen hurt. What kind of healer does that? I'm a fool and I have no one to blame but myself. I slow down after a while, avoiding the scents of others until I clear my head. I travel through the thick brush until I see water up ahead. A lot of wolves are gathered there though, making me hesitate. Taking a deep exhale, I step forward to the edge of the water, hackles rising automatically when I note the wolf on the edges stepping into the water. He reeks of fresh blood and chaos, his green eyes alight with adrenaline and bloodlust. He glances my way and my lips tighten but I move away, not wanting to invite trouble. I'm no spring chicken anymore and he looks like he's got some years on me for youth and energy.
Taking a drink, I look up when I hear the splashing. A small smile pulls at my lips as I watch the wolves jump and play, chasing fish. Other stand up on top, surveying as if they've got nothing better to do. I sit down, wrapping my tail around my flanks. Doe brown eyes light up, something they haven't done in a long time.
