Through the veil of my tears, I watched my closest friend get lowered into the cold, unforgiving ground. Although the body was wrapped in leaves, I knew far too well that the limp mass was Lexi. As I cried, Humphrey; a fun loving omega put his paw on my shoulder. "Wynter, it's ok, te did all te could. There was nothing più te could've done. It wasn't your fault." Wasn't my fault? I looked up at him, tears rolling down my face "Then why....why does it hurt so bad"? He sighed and brought me into his chest and hugged me. As we were hugging he detto "Wynter te need to try to be strong for Lexi." I couldn't though. Right then and there, crying harder than ever before. I broke down. An alpha, sobbing! I was no alpha, we were trained to handle situations like this. And I failed. Between my sobs I managed to speak. "I... I want my friend back." Humphrey extended his arms and looked me eye-to-eye. "Believe me when I say that she is in a better place now." The funeral proceeded, words were spoken, but I paid no attention to the words. The only thing I seemed to be focused on was the hole in the ground, now filled with the omega named Lexi...
It's a dark world when your Friends start dying.
After the funeral, I walked back to our den. A sat in there, motionless, positive that I would never be able to accept the terms that Lexi is really gone. I'm never going to see her smile, hear her laugh. These thoughts continued for three straight hours. I was convinced that I'd wake up and everything would be ok. But at the bottom of my cuore I knew it wouldn't. The più I thought about her, the più I replaced sorrow with anger. I slowly became obsessed with finding Lexi's killer. I began to form a plan but I fast became aware that I wouldn't be able to do this alone. I needed help if I was planning on killing the son of a cagna that ha rubato, stola Lexi away from me. It was settled, I'd gather some Lupi and we would track down the murderer.
As I exited the den, I was greeted da Kate and Humphrey. Humphrey wagged his tail and smiled, but his smile quickly faded. "You're going to avenge Lexi aren't you?" I took a step back. "Y-yeah..." I shook my head and stood up straight "...Yes. How did te know?" Kate stepped forward. "Wynter, your mind is clouded with anger, please reconsider." I let out a low growl and got in Kate's face. "If te think for one second, that te two are going to stop me, I'd Amore to see te try." Kate's ears perked up but dropped flat as she growled back. "You don't know who you're messing with te ungrateful, foolish girl. We are here to help you." I pushed Kate aside. "I don't need your help!" Kate ran in front of me. "Tough shit. You're getting my help if te like it o not". I didn't argue, in fact I was glad that she offered once più to aid me. Ok I have a group now. Time to start tracking. Humphrey, Kate, and I searched high and low for any traces of the wolf. Nothing found. 3 days of tracking, and not even a single clue. Then it hit me. I ran to Kate's den. "Kate!" She turned quickly. "Oh Wynter.... I wasn't expecting you. ciao listen we need to talk." I walked closer. "Yeah I know I need to talk too, but I know how we can find-." She cut me off. "I'm stopping any further searches, and I'm going to have to ask te to return to your normal alpha duties." I shook my head. "No no no, Kate hear me out." She nodded. "The reason is so simple Kate! We haven't found anything because we haven't been looking during the night. I beg you, please one last chance." She looked at me and sighed. "Alright Wynter, last shot." I walked out of the den, satisfied. I began to feel like this was really going to happen. I was going to find that wolf, oh when I do, te better believe there would be bloodshed.
