Hi, my name is Zayla (Zay-la); I am the princess of the werewolves pack. I swore to take care of them. But that all changed; when I made a mistake. I will never forget.
Chapter 1: The mistake,
(that should not have happened).
It all began when; William(my brother) and I were racing in the empty fields.
He and I jump over each other, giggling and howling happily.
“Children, time to come back home! “My mother howls.
Instantly, we knew that was it, the time. (Time to say goodbye.)
You see, our family is not ordinary. We are different. How different? You ask! My family is foreign to wolves that roam through the vast land. But fragments of us are connected to humankind; We are werewolves, dividing humans and wolves into one.
We(My Brother and I) both live separately from one another. My brother lives with our Seanal(Se-ne-al) Werewolf Dad.
While; I live with our Neala(Ne-al-a) Werewolf Mom.
Even though I have no clue, Why my family is separate? But this is my guess. My brother could turn into a human, but I can not.
I am a halfling. So, I can turn; full wolf. But also, I can turn somewhat; into a human. (I could try to look like a human.)
But my parents don’t want to take any chances.
That is why; my whole pack and I are Neala, in my language. That means we are werewolves, but a bit different.
Making my brother and father, Seanal. (or like the ones in movies.)
Chapter 2: Queen too soon,
My mother says, “One day, I shall rule the wolf pack! “
I wanted to be a wolf. But I wonder, what is it like being a human?
My brother always tells astonishing stories about his adventures as a human.
It sounds fascinating.
But I know; I must do my duty and take over the wolf pack. Someday.
I curled up in the corner of my house.
Knowing tomorrow will be difficult; than any other day.
I woke up to a loud noise that sounded too familiar.
I ran out to see my mom lying on the ground.
I checked to see if her heart was still pulsing. It was not.
I got frustrated.
“Who did this? “I say, yelling.
There was a sudden silence.
I could smell that humans were near. I growl.
“WOLVES! “I growled. All the wolves come out of the house. “Charge! ”
We attack the humans, making them run.
**As the humans were gone.**
A long moment of silence came to the room.
They all stared at the queen; (My Mom). As I hugged her, crying.
I stopped to see what Liam was going to say?
“How would they know that we, “Wolves, were here?” Liam said, confused.
Wolves are the terminology; that we call ourselves.
“No one went near the humans, right? “Ethan asked, looking at us.
I thought about it for a minute.
**** flash back****
“It all began when; William(my brother) and I were racing in the empty fields. “(p. 1)
“It is my fault, “I said.
I started to cry; as I hugged Mom.
Chapter 3: the thought of knowing,
They looked at me; as I rambled for a moment. But the pack decided not to say anything.
But instead, changing the subject, “She looked so restful like nothing happened to her. “Rea says, smiling.
“Ya just restful, “Giya says in sign language.
“I think she will be alright, “Olena says, smiling.
But, I think, knowing that she had been wrong. That everything will not be alright, and everything will change.
But I did not care what was said.
So, I didn’t say anything.
My mom mattered the most, Right Now.
They were all talking about “Me being queen, My Mother dying, How will this affect me? ”
Like, I did not even pay attention.
But I was.
Then, they conclude by saying, “We all will have to make this work for the queen’s sake! “Rea says.
“And for werewolves survive, “Zero says.
“Even for Zalya, too! “Ethan says, implying.
“That is right! “Nira says, rolling her eyes.
“But we can all do it! I know we can! “Zero says, passionate.
Soon, I had to drift off to sleep.
Chapter 4: The Uninvited,
“Hugh,” I said, started sitting up.
My head was hurting; from the hardwood floor.
“You’re awake! “Emze, my best friend (from the pack), said, hugging me. I was getting squeezed.
“Emze, give her some space. We don’t want the princess or “queen-in-waiting” to become squashed! Do we? ” Ethan claimes, giving her to Liam.
While, (helping me not get squeezed, to death by her.)
“Thanks, ” I say to him, smiling.
“Welcome, And what happened to me? Sorry, ” I say, interrupting him.
“It is ok,” Ethan said, chuckling at me.
“Why are you-HEllO, Ralya! MOM! Dad and I made presents for you and mom! “
I knew who that was. I started to cry.
Chapter 5: The interrupted!
“MOM, Me and Dad made a present for you and mom. ”
I knew who that was. I curl up into the side of the room, hiding my tears.
He didn’t know, even our father!
“Hello, “He said again.
I did not move an inch.
Ethan looked at me and heard him say it another time.
He stood up, walking to my brother.
“Ethan, “My brother said, hugging Ethan.
I silently crawl to the entryway.
“Hi, “he says back.
I watch them, looking on through the side of the door.
“Did you see Ralya? Is she alright? ”
Willam was concerned about me? I bite my lip.
He looked at me for a while and back at him, “Well, she is not feeling her adequate. Right now! “He says. “That is why she desired me to talk to you, “He says, smirking.
“Idiot, “I said, furious.
**3 minutes later**
Willm walks away from the house, saying goodbye.
I ran to them. But somehow, a hairy hand stops on me.
I looked back; it was Cece looking at me.
The pack has some nicknames for all of us.
“Ya, “I said, forgetting that they were here.
“I think you should leave them, “Emaze says
“You have important things to do, like. You being Queen and All, “Rea said.
“We have to go; We do not have any time to waste, “CeCe says.
“Ok then,” I say.
Chapter 6: Being Queen
We started to go to the end of our house.
It had been so quiet; that we could hear the house crackle and the rats scurrying around.
The house was as old as time itself. The house was made; by the first wolves, humans, and werewolves, who first walked on this earth.
And we keep it safe; because it has a lot of powerful auras; that you can never imagine.
While making keeps us safe and makes our hideout/house a secret.
Until yesterday, I still do not know if it still works?
We stop at the end of the house, or that is what others may think.
They stopped and looked at me. I stare at the two, then at the wall.
It had pictures of all the Royals, other werewolves, and wolves that had died, long before, all of us.
I look to see my mom in one of the pitchers. I suddenly sat and hid my face with my hand.
“I cannot do it, “I say, crying.
My friend comes to me. Put my hand on my shoulder and said, “You are not alone. We will always be here with you. “
That moved me; a lot.
I decided to try; I took a breath and pulled out my sword. I was ready.
“Water, Air, Earth, Fire, The World. Every god and goddess. I want you to know that I am the Daughter of Flora and Henery. The princess of the magic wolves, soon the queen and protector, of each mystical wolf and werewolves. ”
I took a breath and said, “The protector of the house of enchantment. And I want to say that. I am ready to see the eyes of the ancients and learn the ways of magic. “
“I will promise; I will take care of both magic wolves, werewolves, and the house of enchantment with my life. “I say, motioning my swords around, in every word.
“Now show me; from these hidden doors. What I need to be Q-u-u-e-e-n-n! “I say, magic/light breaking through the walls, turning them into rubble.
“Booooooom, bashaklom, badoom.“, Opened a whole new room!
I stop to take a breath.
“Wow, that was amazing. You were so cool that you made a wall open. “Ralya said; she stopped to look at me, then the room.
“Good job, Zalya, your mom would be very proud, “Rea says to me, smiling.
I stood up and smiled, “Ya, I hope, and thanks, Cece. It was amazing! “I say, smirking.
Chapter 7: The hidden room
The three of us went into the room. Awed; in what we had seen. I mean, (first of all: we did not even think there would be a remote entry here.)
But my mom used to tell me, “All hidden objects can be concealed, even to an eye. ”
After she had died, Ethan found a slip of paper in her hand that had said, “Where, every ancient werewolf belongs. In an area, at the end of our house. You will find something there, concealed from our eyes, with great secrets. “She says from the note.
So, that is why we went to the end of the house.
To see if it could happen.
She was right.
“Ralya, I think you have to see this, “Ethan called me.
I walked into the room.
I was shocked; (not in a good way).
The room was fully metal; even the walls were.
“I wonder why my mother would make a room metal? “I say, asking them.
They all; were clasped to a keyboard.
“Oh, there you are. We need you! “Ethan says, grabbing my hand and putting my hand on the keyboard.
“Ummm, one question? Why are you doing that? “I ask him.
“Oh, So we all were trying to open this keyboard. After all, to see if there are. “any secrets here. “Zero said.
“And, none of our hands worked. So we thought you might. “Nari says.
“Oh, ok, “I say, calm down.
“Correct, Correct, Correct, Correct. “The keyboard says.
“Umm, “I say, looking at my hand.
“Oh, ya sorry. “Ethan embarrassedly said, letting my hand go.
Ah. I gently touch my hand, trying to massage it.
“Please type in the following answers below! “The keyboard says.
“What is hidden to the eye? ”
“Umm, “I say, thinking.
“Wait…, here. All hidden objects can be concealed, even to an eye? “I say.
“O-b-j-e-c-t-s, “Veneka says, typing it out.
“Wait, your mom says that the house has magic ores, right? “Rea says.
“Ya, soo? “I ask.
“And we can not see the air, right? “Zeo says, making contact with Rea.
“So, what is there to think? “Nira says, sassy.
“Uhh, ya. Type “Nature and Magic. ”
“Ok, “I say, typing.
“Correct, Correct, Correct! “
“Yes, good work! “I say, giving high-fives to each other.
Chapter 8: “MOM “
“You may proceed, ”
The walls open to a better room. The room was like are living room with a tv, a white couch, rag, and everything.
“Ahh, This feels much better, “Ethan says, going on the couch.
“More light, tv, electronics. Ah, this life! “He says, chillaxing on the couch.
“Guys. As I, soon to be queen. Can you guys not touch anything here? “I say, steadily moving around the room.
“There might be booby traps, “I say.
“But why? Did she want to kill us! “Ethan says, laughing.
“I do not think; that what she ideally had thou-Ugh, I am turning the tv on, “I say, but Ethan interrupts me.
“I told you, NOT TO TOUCH ANYTHING, “I say, stomping my feet.
“Do not be a child! “He says, laughing.
The tv had started, switching onto a familiar woman, “Mom, “I say, slowly walking to the couch.
She smiles, “I want you to know that; I loved you like my everything and your brother. “
“Does she think you are only here!” He says, confused.
“I know that all of you, Ethan! I mean, Ralya will always work together with her pack.”
I paused the tv.
Staring at him, smirking, greedily.
Everyone, except me, felt solely lifted empathy, smiling running down their faces.
We soon started at Ethan in awe. He felt the eyes saying, “Ok, she knows that we are here, my bad!” He says, embarrassed.
” You know that my mother would not forget her pack! One of her soul duties!
Everyone looked at me, I soon frowned.
I took a breath, “I’m over this? “I say, unpausing the tv.
“But I want to tell Ralya something first! “
“I have some tasks you have to do for me. ”
“Can you do it? ”
“Good! “She says, knowing me, that I would!
“First, I want you to tell your father and brother about my death. ”
“It will be hard. ” My mother says, pausing.
“But I know that you can do it. “Emze says, smiling
“Promise me! ”
“Ok, “I say, with no emotion.
Chapter 9: How to stop dying?
“Now,” She says, taking a pause.
“I could tell that she had to “rise to the dead about that!” I say sarcastically.
The tv started to glitch.
Ethan, softly-fakely-chuckles, “Ya, it must have taken two live for her too, right now.”
“Ya! You are right!” I say, rolling my eyes laughing.
“It is like she is here with us right now. It is like she is not dead,” I say, starting to cry.
“Are you ok?” Ethan says, stop laughing.
The others glance at me.
“No, I am not ok! And I will never be ok! Without mom, I feel like it is my fault that she is dead, that she is not here with us.” I say, sobbing in every word, hurting me from the inside.
Ethan says, hugging me. “You are going alright! You have us, and we will not have this happen again!” He says, trying to calm me down.
I pulled his t-shirt; he stopped hugging me and looked me in the eye, “But, how? I ask.
“We just have to try, together, as a team!” He says, crying with me.
“Realy?” I say, hugging him tightly.
“Realy! “He says, looking up, then at me tight.
Chapter 10: Death, painful to take in!
Zero and Rea are fixing the tv. The tv had aimlessly glitched.
Side note:(they idolize fixing everything in the house. Since they were nine years old, because of my dad.)
Ethan starts to stand up, but Nira pushes him into me.
“Ow, “I say, a bit angry.
“What was that-Stop right there, Ethan! “Ethan says, she interrupts him.
“Since Ralya is not really in the mood and might have another waterfall, stay next to her! “She says, smirking.
“Well, I am fine! S-You love birds better have fun! “She says, walking outside.
“We are not even that far, Nira! We are not, love birds! “I say, rolling my eyes.
“Well, see for yourself then, “She says, staring at us.
I glance at Ethan, reddening.
I examine myself to see him: holding my hand (the whole entry time).
I blushed; swatted his hand, letting go.
“Thanks for the drama. Now there will be gossip from those dunderheads! “I say (trying to act calm.)
“Hey, “Emze and Liam said, angry.
“Not you, not two! “I say, rolling my eyes.
“Fuh! “I say, walking up to the other love birds(Rea and Zero).
“So, what are you, lovebirds! “I say, smirking.
They slowly process the remark.
But they overlooked, “The tv is alright, I think it might be our service? “Zero says, fiddling with the tv.
“You mean, the one that my dad constructed with you, peeps! The one mom enchanted that, ONLY we werewolves can see! “I say, anxious.
“Ya, that one. But it is ok: if you-it is fine! “I say, interrupting her.
My head gazed at the floor; my body slouched.
“Are you ok?” Emze says, concerned.
” I’m fin-” I say, fainting.
I open my eyes; I see myself lying on Ethan’s shoulder.
I saw he was chatting on his phone.
“Ya, good. You don’t come here quickly! I can handle Ralya. It will be fine! “He says, beaming.
“Ok, well, see you then! “He says; I immediately act sleepy.
“Ralya! Are you awake? “He says, examining me.
I could tell he was grinning.
I didn’t move.
He stood up.
I assumed he would never leave.
Suddenly, he moved nearer, positioning his hand on the sofa.
I reddened, guessing it was a stunt.
But he leaned forward and kissed me.
I was in shock, with no word to stop this.
“Hey Ethan, I got some medicine for Ralya. Just in case-“Emze says, coming in.
He stops; both look at each other in awe.
“Did I interrupt something? “She asks.
“No, “I say, walking up to Cece, taking medicine, and leaving.
I went to the front entryway on the stairs, glimpsing at the falling snow.
Today was winter, and I did even know!
“I wish mom was here! “I say, crying.
Chapter 11: Tears can’t stop me now!
It’s is not fair! Not fair, Not Fair!
I say, in my head, once more, rudding my eyes, as my eyes still cry.
“Hey,” Ethan says, knocking at the side of the entryway.
I didn’t look back.
He takes a few steps towards me.
“Are you ok? You kind of-DO you think I am ok! Well, I am not! Thank you very much!”
“You have important things to do, like. You being Queen and All,“ Rea said.
“We have to go; We do not have any time to waste,“ CeCe says.
“Ok then,“ I say.
