She Wolf

Chapter 1

A Better Life

The cold wind howled in my ears as I raced through the night. Every sight and sound was so wild and free. Within each step my heart beat louder. Boom. Boom. Boom. The snow flew down from the dark sky and landed on the ground ever so peacefully. I knew the time was right and I stopped. The night air filled my lungs as I looked up at the pearly white moon. With one sound of a howl after another I joined in, my emotions slowly melting away.

~Two Days Earlier~

“Just leave then!” mother screamed at me. Tears began to form in my eyes as I slammed the door shut behind me. She doesn’t want me and I don’t blame her. I wouldn’t want me either. I was never the perfect daughter she wanted. She doesn’t need me. No one needs me anymore. I gathered up my feelings and ran away from the world. To the one place that I belonged.

My heart raced as I ran past my old school, where I never belonged. I was never treated right. Not exactly human. I hated it but yet it was a part of me that never seemed to leave. I shut my eyes tight as I moved on from the past. No longer would I feel the pain of yesterday. I won’t let these memories confine me.

The forest came into view as I turned the tight corner. I urged myself to run faster, blending myself with the wind. The chain link fence looked a lot shorter from the last time I came here. I jumped it in a swift motion. Easy. I breathed in the forest’s air. The pine trees towered over my small body. I was an ant compared to this world and for the first time in my life I felt free.

I ran on concealing myself into the lively greens. I pushed on and finally came to a stop as soon as I heard the sound of a small creek nearby. I slightly tilted my head to the left and ran deeper into the trees, searching through the thousands of sounds coming and going throughout my mind. At long last I saw the crystal clear water running in different directions along the forest floor. A gasp of relief released from my throat as I fell into the soft grass. Small white flowers covered the ground and a mossy tree trunk created an untouched bridge across the creek. The life around me felt so magical as if it was all just a dream. That maybe someday I would wake up and regret it all.

“Life is too beautiful to regret.”
