"Don't tell me te missed this one again!" Zane screamed at Anders who sat there in disappointment to the loss of another rabbit failed catch.
"Well,it's not like I have an Alpha older brother with tons of Alpha and hunting training that could help me." Anders detto in frustration as he lay on the ground da the burrow.
It's been two weeks since Anders set off for his hunt for his brothers. He had found Zane but he wasn't much of help when it came to hunting. Zane could fight, but he never could hunt. He wondered if his family was even still at the place they once were. He wondered how he would ever find them again, and if he would find them alive. He shook his head in disbelief that he would even let these negative thoughts roam his mind. He quickly left those thoughts and got back to his hunting.
Anders and Zane began to walk beside each other in cerca of another rabbit o bigger prey. Their stomachs growled angrily at them, and trying there best to get some food. When they finally got their mind off of food. The growling didn't stop. They couldn't help but feel helpless form the lack of Cibo in their bellies.
"Dude, I'm starving." Zane said, breaking the silence da stating the obvious.
"I never had a clue Sherlock." Anders replied sarcastically.
"Well, te think we'll find some Cibo somewhere?"
"Of course." Anders said, "Don't let negative thoughts get in your mind Zane. It'll keep te back in life."
"You sound just like mother te know that?"
"Me?" Anders chuckled, "No, not really."
"You're like someone I know that much." Zane detto as he smiled at Anders, "No wonder te are with Faith. I see why she can't get enough of you."
Anders blushed at Zane's comment. "You really think so?" He detto looking away from Zane so that he wouldn't see him blushing redder then a rose.
"Yeah, I mean she gets a real kick out of you."
"Well, she is great." Anders said. Anders paused and wondered about Faith and how she was back at the den. He kept thinking and wondering what life would be like with Faith. He imagined Faith in his tana, den having cena with his parents. Her blushing and saying, "Anders quit it! Don't embarrass me in front of my future mother-in-law!" Anders began to smile and drool form his mouth from the thought.
"ANDERS!? te who!? ANDERS!!!" Zane yelled. "Uh...I like turtles." Anders detto mindlessly and looking up at the sky. Zane smacked him in the back of the head and said, "ANDERS WAKE UP!"
"Huh? Oh, right, sorry Zane." Anders detto as he blushed harder, "I was thinking about...something."
"Yeah, something. I'll stick with that."
"You know Zane."
"Yes? What's up?"
"I was going to ask her something."
"What was that?"
"The giorno that mother and father told me about this assignment. I was going to ask Faith to marry me. We were going to have a family, me and her and a bunch of little pups running around the den. Me coming home form Alpha duties and seeing her standing there and welcoming me home with a nice little nuzzle, our Cuccioli running to me and giving me a hug. I just want to have a normal life with her. Then this assignment came, and I guess my dreams got set back for a while."
"Wow dude. That's deep." Zane detto astonished da Anders sweetness towards Faith, "You really Amore her that much?"
"That much and more."
"Well te did kind of ask for it te know?"
"Ask for it? How?"
"You have detto it yourself, 'I Amore to go on missions and fight,'I guess the council just thought you'd be able to."
"I guess, but did they have to do it that day?" Anders replied as he raised his voice, "I mean, is it too much to ask for a lupo to have some time with his lover?"
"Apparently so brother."
Anders sighed and said, "I hate that valley sometimes."
"So do I."
"I wish I could just...Erase all this." Anders detto as he looked to Zane, "Why did this have to happen? Our lives were perfectly find until the northern and southern packs came along."
"I know Anders, and I'm sorry but te know? Life goes on whether te want it to o not."
"You know?Everything went to hell once te and everyone else left!" Anders detto turning against his brother.
"Now wait just a damn minute!" Zane yelled, "Since when am I the bad guy?"
"You just had to leave! If te hadn't have left I'd still be eating caribou with Faith! But no! te had to go and ruin my life!"
"I had nothing to do with the northern and southern pack coming to take over the valley and te know that Anders!"
"Oh yeah and the attack just so happens to happen after the northern and southern pack have plenty of time to figure out that the toughest fighters in the western pack just deserted them selfishly!" Anders screamed, "Don't try and hide that this is your fault Zane! Sometimes I wonder if te were even worth my time."
"Well, apparently mother does cause she told te to come get me and you'll lose the valley without me!"
"I'd rather lose the valley then try to win it back with a backstabber like te da my side!" Anders screamed.
"I can't believe I actually called te my brother!"
"You're just like Blaze and Ryker, nothing but a little let down."
"No wonder te left! Not even Janet loved you!" Anders screamed as Zane looked back at him, "If te don't want to help me at all then leave like te did before! I was te damn little brother! That was left with nobody but his parents to play with! te have no idea what te put me through!" Anders began to cry and lay down as he said, "I was hurt not da the fact that te left! But I was hurt because non of te cared enough about me to tell me that te were hurt! None of te asked me for my help! None of te told me te were leaving! Am I that worthless to you!? Just a little bit of dead weight to hold on to in case te get in trouble!? None of te even told me te loved me! Do te have any idea what I must have thought te felt!? I thought my older brothers hated me! It tore me up inside!"
Anders sat there in what was now making a decent puddle of tears. "None of you...Ever...Loved me enough to do anything for me." Zane sighed and walked over to Anders and pulled his paw over to him and laid his head over Anders'. "I know Anders. I'm sorry. You're right. I was never a good brother, and I'm not going to do the expected thing and try to get out of it because a brother should never put his little brother through something like that, but I must admit. I'm proud of you." Zane detto with a smile.
"Proud?" Anders asked looking up to Zane as he rested on his side.
"Of course I'm proud. What brother wouldn't be proud of his little alpha? You've grown into a spitting image of what me, mother, father, Blaze,and Ryker dreamed of being. Anders, you've worn everyone's will on your shoulders."
"Will? What do te mean?"
"Ever since we left. You've taken care of mother and father, Aunt Lilly and Uncle Garth, your Amore Faith,and most importantly, the whole pack. Everyone."
Anders sniffed and rubbed his eye with his paw then said, "You really think so?"
"Anders...I know so. You've become what we've always dreamed of being." Zane asked smiling. "A perfect...Little Alpha."
Anders began to cry and buried his face into Zane's fur, and soaking Zane full of tears. Zane nuzzled his brother on his head and said, "I Amore te Anders."
"I Amore te too...Big brother."
Zane smiled and went to sleep with Anders da his side. "Goodnight. My buddy." He whispered before he went to sleep.
The successivo morning Anders woke up before Zane and decided that he should go find Zane some breakfast since he hasn't had a good one in a while. He began to get up, carefully moving around Zane's arms and legs so that he wouldn't wake up his brother.
"What should I get for Zane?" Anders asked himself as he started to walk away form Zane. Rabbits would be too small for a special surprise. A deer? Too hard. A bear? Too risky. What would be prefect for Zane? The domande kept soaring through Anders' mind because he couldn't quite decide on something that would be good for an occasion and easy to hunt da himself. "Caribou! That's perfect. He hasn't had some of that in a while I'm sure, "Anders detto to himself.
Anders kept getting farther and farther away from he camp where him and Zane spent the night. "Might need to turn o stop in a few minutes." Anders detto as he looked in front of him and was surprised da the hundred of caribou in a large field. "Thank te god." He detto to himself.
Anders laid in the erba for the perfect moment, but when the caribou got close he noticed something weird about them. "Oh well, they're still caribou." He detto to himself. He then pounced and landed with a sharp pain in his leg. He then felt woozy. He soon fell to the ground and began falling asleep. "What..is..happening?" He whispered to himself. Before he went into a full lumber, he saw some figures that weren't Lupi in white clothing walking towards him. He finally closed his eyes and went to sleep.
