Anders woke up to find that his parents were already up and about. He stood up and started to stretch and shake himself awake.
"Did आप sleep well?" Kate asked once she noticed him awake.
"What are we going to do today?"
"Yup, same old Anders, Business as usual." Humphrey chuckled as Kate giving a slight smile answered Anders' question. "Me and Humphrey are going to meet with Garth, Lilly, and the others to discuss what needs to take place at the moment. Right now some of the Alphas are looking for खाना and shelter."
"What do आप need me to do?"
"I need आप to take it easy today. आप had a long दिन yesterday and need the rest. And this isn't a suggestion, it's an order."
"Are आप sure there isn't anything?"
Anders rolled his eyes and began to walk away. "I just thought that I would need to do something in a time like this."
"How long has it been since आप went to see Faith Anders?" Shouted Humphrey.
Anders' ears twitched at his father's सवाल and took off faster then a lightning bolt.
"You always knew what got to him." Kate कहा as she nuzzled Humphrey.
"Well, he's my son, so he's bound to be like me, and when I was that age. My girl was the most important thing in the world." Humphrey कहा as he winked at Kate.
She giggled and watched her son run off into the woods and took a deep breath. Humphrey noticed and Nuzzled her back.
"Don't worry about him. Now come on, after that meeting we get to take the rest of the दिन off ourselves."
Anders ran around the whole area and almost ran into three other भेड़िया doing so. He stopped to rest while still looking around. "Where could she be? I hope she wasn't left behind.I wouldn't be able to live with myself if she..." Just then Anders was tackled and pinned द्वारा an unknown figure.
"Where have आप been my little Alpha?" कहा his captor. Anders recognized the voice and quickly pushed his captor off and pinned her to the ground.
"Little huh? If anyone is a little Alpha it's आप Faith." Anders chuckled as he nuzzled her and then got off. Faith is a blond alpha much like Kate only with longer hair and light blue eyes.
"But seriously Anders. I was worried sick about you. I was for sure that आप were still out there fighting."
"I probably still would be if my father didn't make me leave." Anders began to walk with Faith right beside him.
"Well I'm glad he did. Faith licked Anders' cheek.
"So what do आप want to do today? We have the hole दिन to ourselves."
"Oh I don't know. How about..." Faith then ran off in the other direction giggling to herself. Anders began to chase after her, which marked the start of a game of chase between the two.
"We've been waiting for आप two." Lilly कहा as HUmphrey and Kate sat down द्वारा her and Garth.
"So what's the plan?" One of the lead Alphas spoke up.
"First off we need to be deciding whether we should continue moving on to a different area या not." Garth replied.
"I say we keep moving, nobody feels सुरक्षित yet." कहा another Alpha.
"If I may sir, my squad has found plenty of caribou in just this area alone. Also while they've been on the hunt they have found many caves that we could use as shelter."
"Yes, but how long until they track us down again?"
"We have lookouts throughout the area that will be able to warn us when they come." कहा Kate.
"Then it's settled. We stay here until further notice. Sort of like a सुरक्षित Haven until we can recover from our loss."
"What about when we go back to reclaim our land? We don't have nearly enough भेड़िया to take them on, and even if we did they still wouldn't be strong enough."
"We did once until three of our best fighters deserted us. If they didn't leave none of this would've happened." Kate's दिल started to ache as she lowered her head.
"They're all dead to us now." An alpha replied. Kate tried to hold back the tears but was unable to. She cried so softly that only Humphrey, Lilly, and Garth noticed.
"Shut up! All of you!" Humphrey shouted in rage, "None of आप have any right to say anything about them!"
"They're a disgrace Humphrey!" Humphrey leaped to the one who कहा this and began choking him. Garth quickly pulled Humphrey off and stood in between them.
"All of आप stop this right now! We aren't going to solve anything if we argue like this!"
"Then what do आप suggest we do Garth? Send our भेड़िया in only to get slaughtered!?" Before Garth could reply a soft, shaky voice spoke out. "We...we can bring them back..." Everyone turned toward Kate who was still looking at the ground crying.
"Kate wha....what are आप talking about?" Humphrey asked as he came over to comfort her.
"We can get them back....I know we can........We just need to send Anders and..."
"Kate we don't need to do that." Garth कहा as he walked over and stood द्वारा Humphrey.
"Yes we do Garth!" She snapped, "We need my sons here now............We have no other choice..."
