"No, no, no, NOO! te can't die! I Amore you," wailed Humphrey as he wept over Kate's body.
Winston padded up to him, "Humphrey, she's dead, there's nothing we can do."
Humphrey looked at his pack leader, only to see his own sadness reflected in Winston's eyes.
"No, she can't be dead, she can't be dead, no," he cried. Humphrey then looked over at Tony, "This is your fault! If te weren't so greedy, Kate would still be alive! te old fool, Kate gave her life to save yours, and te don't even have the respect to mourn her."
Tony flinched away from the cold fuoco in Humphrey's gaze. "Tony, I think te should take your pack home before mine does something drastic," Winston whispered to his old friend.
Tony nodded, "Eastern pack, we're going home!" Howls of protest rose from the eastern Lupi throats, but a powerful look from Tony sent them on their way.
"Humphrey, it's no use. Come on buddy, let's go home," Salty nudged Humphrey's shoulder as he spoke.
"No, there's nothing for me there. I'm never going back there again. I'm going to leave Jasper, and hopefully my pain far behind." Humphrey growled as he stood up. "But first, I am going to bury her, it is the least I can do for her."
Late that night, after finishing Kate's grave, Humphrey left Jasper Park, vowing to never return to the place that had taken away the one he had loved….
The old lupo woke from a horrible dream to see that it had invaded the real world; HE was standing in the cave successivo to him. "So," asked the old wolf, "have te come to kill me?"
"For her," was the only thing the old lupo heard before he felt razor-sharp teeth tear into his throat.
The old lupo made no noise as he bled out on the floor of his den; but as his killer walked out of the cave, he managed to choke out, "I'm sorry for all the pain I've caused." The successivo morning wailing could be heard on the eastern side of the river, Tony was dead.
