Wolf Legend - Part XXI21. Six Weeks Later (Epilogue)
Rabeka sat outside the office building. A cold wind gust blasted against her, blowing her hair all over. She pulled at her scarf, fiddling with the tassels at the ends.
She sat fidgeting nervously, waiting for Andrew to come out of the board meeting. It had been a long battle up until this point, not just with the mob and almost being killed, but life returning to normal wasn't a happy ending. Andrew was in front of a company board meeting, determining whether or not he would be terminated, or kept as a costumer support manager.
Rabeka had already been in there to plead her case. She had been pardoned, only just barely. If it were up to Phil and a few other executive higher ups, they'd be out for good. Both of them gone the same exact days for different reasons, all the while trying to pretend it had nothing to do with each other. It was a mess both knew they'd need to deal with. Thankfully their made-up excuses paid off in the end, and so far at least on

*some gore in here, just a heads up*
Andrew took heavy breaths as fear overwhelmed him. He trembled; Rabeka could barely hold him, firmly bracing herself against his chest. Too much of his past coming back to haunt him all at oncehe wasn't prepared for this.
Up until that point he thought that Alex had come alonesettling his own personal vendettaand never once thought the entire pack would leave their sanctuary in the mountains. A few, yes. He figured Stephan was obsessed enough with control that he would send out scouts to hunt him down.
Alex's howl to the pack continued loudly, shaking loose any remaining shards of stained glass that were left in the windows. Rabeka had no clue what was happening, eyes shooting back and forth between Andrew and Alex.
Sunlight barely shown through one side of building, gently flickering the light from the glass around the room like a disco-ball. Rachel found some momentary comfort in admiring its beauty.
Wolf Legend - Part XIX19. Coalition
It didn't take much effort for Andrew to avoid the dark figure that projected toward him. Andrew swung his torso and hands up toward the furry beast, grabbing on to the arms that were reaching for him. Even as a human, Andrew effortlessly swung the airborne werewolf against the wall, shattering the window near by. He could tell whoever this was, was newly turned, and incredibly inexperienced at attacks. A real werewolf would have done this much faster. He also discovered that the werewolf was a female.
Andrew stepped back, panting. The energy exerted to toss his enemy caused a break in his physical concentration, and it took everything he had to prevent from shifting again. Remaining human was key if he was to keep Mel on his side. Andrew could feel his eyes glowing and his teeth wanting to shift into fangs. He braced himself against the back of a pew for support as he calmed is features back to normal.
The female werewolf bounced up all fours. Newly turned werewolves str
Wolf Legend - Part XVIII18. The Escape (part two)
The faster Alex ran, the more Andrew pushed harder, with long strides on all fours. His long powerful claws effortlessly digging into the tile and wood floors. His muscles working overtime, pushing past the pain of his sudden and rather abnormal recovery from being poisoned.
Keeping up was easy. Alex may have appeared to be bigger and stronger looking, but running was Andrew's specialty. He had no problem keeping up with Alex. In fact, he was catching up, growing closer and attempting to snap at his hind legs frequently. However, despite being only inches behind, Alex seemed to have a solid knowledge of the area, switching paths on a dime and a settling deeper and deeper into the maze-like facility. This gave Alex the advantage, making it more difficult for Andrew to successfully catch him, despite his speed.
Both wolves panted and snarled loudly with each stride. Thankfully there were no other humans to witness the chaseyet. Andrew was sure Alex didn't
Wolf Legend - Part XVII17. The Escape (part one)
*******DISCLAIMER: This chapter has some mild gore. Just a heads up. *******
Rabeka lay motionless in the cell. She had been banging on the door and crying for what seemed like a whole hour. Obviously at this point, there was no use in trying.
Andrew was now gone, and she was unsure if it was the last time she would ever see him. She went over in her head the things she wanted to tell him, things she didn't have the courage to say before, and the things she was glad to tell him before he was ripped from the cell. She was at least glad she at least had the chance to thank him for doing his best to protect her, but ultimately, the blame fell on her.
"I'm such an idiot," she whispered to herself, tears puddling up in her eyes. She hadn't the strength to lift her arm and wipe them away as they dripped down onto the cold, hard cement floor. She was fully prepared to die now, right then and there. She honestly hoped it would come quick, as it seemed there was no
Wolf Legend - Part XVI16. Guile
Andrew could hear his name being shouted over and over, as if he was under water. Low pitched and unrecognizable, he couldn't pick a general direction his name was coming from. The elongated echo didn't help either. At first he was certain it was all a dream, but when he realized he couldn't wake up without feeling pain, he knew it wasn't.
Where am I? Andrew asked himself. He attempted to move, but like before, he couldn't. He couldn't move at all, not even open his eyes.
The sound of his name grew louder and more clear until it was familiar and warming. Rabeka was frantically yelling his name out to wake him up. Somewhere he found the will to move, slowly lifting his head, his neck aching the entire way. His eyes squinted at first, but eventually opened. At first all he could see was white light everywhere, but as the shadows came into focus, the first thing his eyes locked onto was Rabeka sitting directly across from him. He blinked rapidly helping to focus on her face, see
Wolf Legend - Part XV15. Roads End
Andrew pulled up to the office building. It was already very busy with traffic going every which way on the corner street. Large crowds of people lined up at each corner to cross. "Do you want to come in with me?" Andrew asked leaning over to Rabeka, who was just waking up from a light nap.
"No, I'm going to stay here and sleep," she said, in between a few yawns.
"You're OK with being by yourself?" he asked, surprised.
"There's too many people around for them to notice me. The mob isn't that stupid. I have my phone on me though."
"OK, have it ready to dial me if there's something wrong."
"I will," she said, leaning her seat all the way back and throwing her jacking over her face.
Andrew ran his hand down her hair. She'll be OK, he reassured himself.
He cut the engine and hopped out of his Mazda. The air was thick with traffic smoke, rather difficult to pick up on any smells, but he doubted anyone from the mob would be in such a crowded place, however, if they kne
Wolf Legend - Part XIV14. Breaking Ground
Twigs and leaves crunched loudly under Andrews' large paws. Animals all over scamper away to save their lives as the beast of the forest-the ultimate hunter-prowled slowly through the trees. But today, he was not the animal he was intended to be. Today he was a calm and gentle wolf, making the most out of civil conversation; taking a stroll with its favorite human of all.
Andrew and Rabeka had spent an entire day talking about his past and everything there was to know about werewolves. She knew it all, and there was much more to learn. By now both felt completely comfortable around each other, even with Andrew in his werewolf form. It had not distracted or dissolved their conversations one bit, and Rabeka no doubt had grown accustom to seeing a large eight foot werewolf walking at her side.
Despite what could have been a complete awkward and frightening experience, the day turned out to be one of the highlights of Andrew's life, and possibly Rabeka's too. Andrew had
Wolf Legend - Part XIII13. Long Enough
Andrew slipped out of his apartment out into the hallway, scenting here and there as a safety precaution. He knew the people he had seen with Mel weren't around, but after their encounter with the phony policemen, he didn't know who he could trust. It literally could be anyone roaming the streets of New York. His wolf skills felt useless at this point.
He sneaked around the corner to where the stairs were, waiting for a nearby neighbor to clear the hallway before motioning for Rabeka to come out of the apartment. She was wearing one of his large coats, complete with a large hood and puffy interior, to make her look larger than her petite size. She slipped on her sunglasses as she approached Andrew.
"Shut the door," Andrew whispered.
Rabeka cursed, backing up slightly to slam the door, locking it.
"I feel stupid," she said, catching up to him down the stairs. Andrew laughed as he put on his sunglasses and hat.
"I dunno, I kind of like it. I sorta feel like a spy," he sa
