Blood, Canines, And Secret Longings

Chapter 1

Preface

Thump thump-thump thump.

The steady beat of my paws drowned out the sound of the rest of the pack as I ran. ''Breathe in, breathe out. One, two,'' I thought.

''Nathaniel,'' my mind whispered. My eyes narrowed, I ran harder. I was having a hard time breathing but I didn't care. I didn't want to think, didn't want to feel. The whole point of me being able to do this was to make the human stuff go away!

Thump thump-thump thump. ''In, out. One, two.''

Images flashed through my mind in fragmented, disjointed glimpses. Fear in his eyes. Blood pooling in the snow. Flashing red lights as the ambulence took him away.

I gritted my teeth and pushed it all away, letting the wolf take over. Focusing on the bite of the frost against my sensitive pads. The thud of my heart. The hunger gnawing at my stomach. Anything but the awful memories trying to haunt me. I ran harder, trying to out-run the pain.

Being human hurt too much. It was time I let my human side fade away.

Thump thump-thump thump. The sound of my paws dulled my thoughts, and slowly my human pains faded, less painful the more distance I put behind me.

''Breathe in, breathe out.''
