With love and wisdom please embrace,
All within this sacred place.
I now call to you,
Bring your message clear and true.
Life at this point feels more like a terrible dream than actual reality if I'm being truthful. The Were-clans are dying out and apparently I'm the only one who can save them, you know no pressure or anything. Things haven't been going too well but that doesn't mean I'm about to give up, I'd be a fool to throw it all away, bringing dishonor and shame to my clan and my parents. No I won't let that happen. As I said it still feels like a horrific dream, one I can't seem to wake from.
Sad part is, I don't even know who or what had killed my parents in the first place, it happened when I was barely out of my cub years, a teen if you want to go by human numbers. I had gone off to hunt with a few friends, it had been a normal day as far as I can recall. The hunt had been lackluster though but it didn't matter at the time because we had fun. Yeah that fun hadn't lasted long when we got back to the village and many people had been brutally slaughtered. The smell of smoke and blood clung to the air and the bodies strewn about, it's too much!
It was all a blur from there, I needed to find my family and amid all the chaos it was impossible. Fires gutted huts, trees were toppled, cubs and elders cried for help, it was so dizzying and overwhelming! I know I found my way to my own home, how long it took me to get there I can't even hazard a guess but I made it there and found my folks in their Beastial forms, both lying motionless on the ground, paw in paw, eyes glossed over, mouths agape. Then everything went black and I remember no more after that.
Anyway when I did come to it had been a week since the massacre, we lost nearly half the clan and still no one knew who was responsible. We had some theories but they led us nowhere. Now we had no choice but to move and rebuild. The dead had been buried and a deep depression had swept over the survivors. I remember sitting by my parent's graves and sobbing for hours because it had happened so fast and I could not cope with the loss. Once the tears had finally dried I vowed to avenge their deaths and make them proud. I was not going to let this, this. . . monster get away with what they have done!
Leaving the remainder of my clan I fled to the mountains to be alone and there I prayed to my Goddess, the wise and beautiful Luna. I prayed to her for goodness knows how long, night and day. All the while I trained, harnessing the powers deep inside me. I did my best on my own but I knew deep down I had to get help and as if my prayers had been answered, one night a camp had sprung up just outside the cave I'd been staying in. I was cautious at first, but as I spied on the group I learned they were warriors who traveled the world seeking to fight for the Gods. Kind of like mercenaries only much better!
I won't bore you with the details but I can tell you, getting into their ranks was one of the hardest things I ever had to do, you don't know how untrusting people can be, specially those who have a soul purpose like protecting the world. For at least a year I had to prove myself to them and even when I finally gained acceptance, it wasn't for another two years that I was treated like I mattered. Ah but I never let that dampen my spirits, I had my Goddess on my side and I persevered. By the fourth year I was welcomed with open arms and that is when my training began.
Let me skip ahead to the here and now shall I? I am still with the Warrior Clan that travels the world, they have become my new family now and they have taught me so much. We have been through a lot together and they have even offered to help me find my parents' murderer or murderers, I can't rule out that it could be more than one person now. We have had no luck in finding any clues but I will not give up, justice will prevail, my Goddess will guide me!
Unfortunately though the search has been kind of put on hold for the time being because a Shaman we helped in the Jungle, sort of dropped a bit of information on me that I'm still kind of reeling over. It's more so a prophecy than anything but it still makes me feel confused and pressured. If I don't find a mate before the Blood Moon on the 25th year of my birth, every single Were-Clan on Earth will cease to exist. Apparently I meet all the criteria that has been written in the old tomes. Granted I wanted more than anything to laugh it off and say it was all a bunch of nonsense... of course I didn't. I'm not stupid.
I can't really say I'm thrilled to have this sort of thing thrust upon me but I really have no say in the matter. My mate is out there, no doubt searching for me as I search for them, I just pray to my Goddess Luna that we meet before it's too late. I have faith we will but with the world being as crazy as it has been over the past, who knows how long.... you need a little more than faith to keep afloat.
