Here's the next part~
Shadow stood at the mouth of the cave, staring at the sky as it started to grow lighter. He felt uneasy, a lot of the older wolves did.
"Something just doesn’t feel right." Dawn said, sitting next to him.
"Yeah." Shadow said, looking at Dawn.
"Shadow, Dawn." Darkness said, walking up. "You two go get some rest, neither of you had rest since Suki was taken." Shadow looked at his father.
"I doubt I'll be able to sleep." he said.
"Try." Darkness said.
Dawn stood up and pressed her nose into Shadow. "Come on Shadow, some rest would be good for us." Shadow looked at her, and then pushed himself to his feet. Darkness watch as the two wolves went to a spot away from the other wolves and laid down.
"Those two seem to be getting along." Midnight said, walking up to Darkness.
"Reminds me a lot of us when we were that age." Darkness agreed.
"Come on." Midnight said. "It’s time to go hunting." Darkness looked at the wolves gathering and nodded his head. Without another word, the group of 12 wolves departed from the cave.
Snow's eyes slowly opened.
"Did I sleep all day and night? Or have I just not been asleep that long." She said to herself.
"You slept all day and night." Melody said, sitting down next to Snow.
"So, I slept through the moonless night." Snow said, pushing herself into a sitting position.
"Yeah. You needed the rest, which is why no one disturbed you." Melody said. Snow looked at the sky.
"Something doesn’t feel right." she said.
"A lot of your pack seems uneasy." Melody said.
"That’s because the Demons have retrieved the artifacts." A voice said. Snow pushed herself to her feet when she heard the voice.
"Who was that?" Melody asked, looking around and see all the wolves either on the feet or with their head up, including ones that had been sleeping.
"The First." Snow said, as the ghostly form of a white wolf appeared.
"The First?" Melody asked. "The First White wolf?" She looked at the spirit.
"Yes, I am the first White Wolf." The spirit said.
"What artifacts are you talking about?" Snow asked.
"The Moon Artifacts." he said.
"But how? Demons cannot get past the barriers that were placed. Unless..." Snow said, her thoughts turning to Suki.
"They had the help of a human." It said.
"Suki..." Melody said.
"Yes, it was the one you know as Suki." He said.
"What should I do?" Snow asked.
"You must get the artifacts back before it’s too late."
"What do these artifacts do? Why are they so important?" Melody asked.
"With them, the demons can destroy my power source, the moon." Snow said.
"Destroy the moon?" Melody asked.
"Yes." Snow said.
"They also need the blood of a Demon, Human, and Wolf. They already have 2 of the 3." The First said. Snow let out a growl.
"We need to find their cave and launch an attack before they can capture a wolf. Thank you for telling me." Snow said, looking at the spirit.
"That is not the only thing I came to tell you." he said.
"What else is there?" Snow asked.
"The pack will be betrayed." The wolf said.
"Betrayed?” Snow said, looking at the spirit. "But who would betray us..." Snow looked at the ground. "Suki...?" She whispered, and the spirit gave one quick nod, and then disappeared. 'Why would she help them...?’ She thought to herself.
'It appears as if she has fallen for their leader.' The quiet whisper of the First spoke in her head.
"What should we do about this?" Darkness asked. "You know what it means. That both of these things are happening at the same time."
"I do." Snow said.
"Our time is almost over. We must hurry to prevent the destruction of the moon, and us in turn." Midnight said. Snow looked at Melody, who had retired to the back of the cave, then at all the wolves who gathered around her. "When the time comes, we must do what has to be done." She said, sorrow in her eyes.
Suki sat at the mouth of the cave, watching the forest as it started to grow dark. She had awoken a couple hours before, and now wondered where he was. She glanced at her arm, and thought.
'What am I going to do?' She thought to herself. 'I’m a Human, a fighter sworn to protect her people with everything she has, and a trusts friend of Snow and the Wolves of the Night. What am I doing here falling in love with a Demon...?’
She let out a sigh and rubbed her arm, which was fully healed thanks to the help of the Demons. She glanced at the sky, searching for the moon. She found it, just barely peeking over the trees. Suki pushed herself to her feet, and walked into the cave. She didn’t much like this cave; it was hard for her to see in at night. She stopped as she felt her foot hit the leg of a demon, and it growled.
"Sorry." She said, and turned back around. "Why couldn’t I wake up in the morning?" She mumbled as she walked back to the entrance of the cave. "I can’t see in this cave for shit." She leaned against the side of the cave, and stared at the stars.
"Grandma, Snow, Shadow, Darkness, Midnight...How are all of you? Were Snow and her wolves even able to get to the village in time to save it? Would Blaze even tell me if she wasn’t?" Suki stood there, lost in her own thoughts, when Blaze returned to the cave. He saw her, and walked over to her. He sat down next to her, knowing that she hadn’t noticed him yet and not wanting to scare her. A couple minutes past before Suki finally noticed Blaze.
"How long have you been sitting there?" She asked, sitting down as well.
"Not very long." He said. "How long have you been up?"
"A couple hours." She replied. "I’m sorry I was out so long." He said.
"It’s fine." She said.
"I’m going to let you leave in the morning." He said after a couple minutes.
"What?" She asked, looking at him.
"You don’t seem happy here. And you're probably still afraid of me and my Demons." He said, looking at her.
"I’m not afraid of you." She said. "But I do miss Snow and the others."
"I can tell." He said. "I'll take you to the edge of the forest when dawn nears, so you don’t get lost or attacked by my scouts." He said. "Besides. There’s no reason to keep you here, since I have the blood and the artifacts." He said.
"I guess there’s no reason for me to be here then." She said, hiding the hurt she felt.
"I'll come get you when it time." he said, standing up and walking into the cave. She remand sitting, unable to even bring herself to look at where he was sitting moments before. Forcing back her tears, she turned her mind back to the wolves and her village.
Sorry this one took a while (and that the last couple updates have been taking a while. >.<) I decided to change a part with this update because it didn't really fit anymore and I decided on a different thing to have happen.
Thank you, Tankperson!
