Disaster has struck!
The wind blows and I feel my balance grow unsteady but I laugh as the adrenaline inches through my veins. I know that at any moment, the wind could blow me right off this edge and I could die but the feeling of death does not scare me. I welcome it. What do I have to live for anyway? I have no friends, no close acquaintances. I've been trying to gain Andras' respect but I failed miserably by leaving Iromar like I did. Now I'll have to start from the bottom. I have no family left to me in Iromar. I don't see my siblings anymore. I was close once to the former queen Ishtar but she no longer resides in Iromar. Without her, I have no teacher or friend. I have no one.
And yet I smell someone familiar. Stepping off the edge, I sniff the air, only to look up and see a crimson and white wolf standing there. I blink a few times to make sure I'm not seeing things, ears flickering in uncertainty as my tail lowers behind me. I can sense her excitement as she stares at me and her words only confirm my theory. This is her then, my mother. This is Chernobyl. She doesn't look any different than when she was always in my life. Perhaps a tad bit older but other than that, no different. She smiles and it is a genuine smile as if she really wanted to see me. How can this be? I thought she wanted nothign to do with us. I thought that's why she left us in Iromar. I tilt my head in puzzlement, ears flattening to my head.
"Mom? But...why are you here? I thought...I thought you wanted to be with dad. I thought you didn't want to see us."
I can't help but let some of the hurt into my voice as I look at her, waiting for her reply. Then I notice something. She has changed...her belly...it has grown! I sniff the air again and I understand. She is pregnant. It must be another litter from dad. Brothers and sisters...yet I won't know them because they will be born in Diveen. My lips tighten.
"Are you replacing us now?"
