Escape - TheChriZ1995
It's a beautiful sunny morning in Jasper Park, all was peaceful as two packs prepared to be united with an arranged marriage. However for two certain भेड़िया things were far from peaceful, in fact their souls were filled with regret and सेकंड thoughts. One felt like their दिल had been used, as if it was played with like a pup plays with a toy, and the other was only now realizing the true mistake they had made. It was too late though, fate was sealed and the friendship between two भेड़िया almost erased, perhaps it was the way it was meant to be. However one was determined to at least set things straight between them before his long term departure from the pack...
I left my small मांद, डेन for the last time for I no longer held the need to call this place home, I wanted out, start my life a new elsewhere and never look back. It felt like my world had come crashing down around me all because I loved another, I'm the loser here and it was only best to cut my losses and just leave in hopes of being happy again. I told my फ्रेंड्स about my decision who were shocked at first but eventually understood the position I was in, they gave me good wishes and कहा my presence would be missed.
'What have I done to myself?' I questioned, I'm so post to be this free spirited omega that never held a worry या responsibility. Always looking on the bright side of every situation and searching for a solution however the feeling of heartbreak was too strong for me to overcome. It drained me emotionally leaving me to do something that was nearly a death wish, becoming a lone. As an alpha it would be no major issue, just have to deal with only your four paws and learned skills, but as an omega it was much और difficult.
I lacked all the major skills needed to be a successful hunter and fighter, I had no other choice but to go through with this and hoped I could make it work for me. I did this to myself and these were the consequences that I should have already known would happen with loving an alpha. My फ्रेंड्स warned me and I should of listened because they were right, although I don't regret what I've done, I enjoyed what Kate and I had and shared before it broke apart when we arrived back घर last night.
It's crazy for me to think that only yesterday we were getting along great, like the good फ्रेंड्स we were as pups, but now here I am broken hearted and wanting to put as many miles between me and her as I can. I didn't hate her, in fact I still respected her because I प्यार her and I hope that she enjoys her life as the future leader of this pack even if were not together. I just can't stand the sight of seeing her with another wolf, it would just keep bringing me down to the point that other भेड़िया may become suspicious of my sudden depressed mood.
This is why I'm currently heading towards the head alphas den, not because I wanted to tell Winston that I would be leaving, but that I wanted to set things straight between Kate and I. I needed to tell her how I felt even though it was pointless now, it would just be a major relief of my chest knowing that I had told her and that she could understand the reason I was leaving. It did sound kind of cruel, confessing your प्यार and immediately telling them that आप would be leaving on the अगला train that goes by, but it would make us even.
She hurt me emotionally and I will be fair द्वारा hurting her with the knowledge that I left Jasper because of her, again I don't hate her I just want to set things straight and leave on even ground. I could see my destination just ahead as I walked rather slowly trying to figure out what to say and how to say it. Honestly I didn't know what to expect her answer to be after I told her, would she just understand and let me leave या would she beg me to say. Only the future knew and that future was only a few short मिनटों away as I began to climb the rise up to the den.
I knew she would be here because she would most likely be getting ready for her wedding, I just hoped that she was alone because there was no way I would confess my प्यार in the presence of her parents. I took a deep breath before rounding the corner to see if my assumption was correct, and it was because there she was along with Lilly. I stopped and waited द्वारा the entry way to see if they would notice me before entering, I faked a cough and their eyes both came to me.
"Humphrey!" Kate कहा sounding surprised
"Hey Kate" I कहा in a normal tone before walking inside and sitting near both of them.
Lilly continued on with grooming Kate's फर after we exchanged greetings. I wasn't worried about her being here, in fact I was pretty sure that she knew of my feelings towards her sister. I made it pretty obvious during the winter Kate was gone at alpha school since I was constantly missing her to the point that she and my फ्रेंड्स tried to get my mind off of her.
"How are आप today?" She asked, though I could tell she wasn't all there द्वारा the way she spoke
"I'm fine, a little soar but still fine" I replied lying a bit, it just didn't feel right to be talking to her like this, I always enjoyed talking with her but now it felt as if I was talking to just another wolf.
"I just came द्वारा to see if आप wanted to take a little walk since I got something on my mind, या are आप busy?" I asked
"Sure, I got about an घंटा till I have to meet my parents back here before the ceremony" She replied
"Great" I smiled
"I'll be back sis, आप should get yourself ready too while I'm gone" She कहा facing Lilly
"Yeah I probably should, have a nice walk" Lilly agreed before leaving the मांद, डेन before us
We silently walked out of the मांद, डेन with me leading the way out of the मांद, डेन grounds and towards a nearby stream on the territory border.
"So what did आप want to talk to me about?" She asked in a happy tone waking alongside me
"Well this isn't going to be the simplest thing to say but आप remember our howl the other night?" I began looking towards her
"Yeah I do... why do आप ask?" She replied lightly
"Was it real?"
"Like did आप really mean it या was it all just in the moment?" I said
She let out a sigh "I don't know, it just felt so right... your voice was so beautiful it pulled me in"
I would have smiled from her compliment but I was confused about how she was अभिनय about this so far "...so I joined आप even though I shouldn't have." She continued lowering her head and ears.
I slowly nodded my head before taking a breath, here it goes... "I meant it... All I've ever wanted was to share a single howl with आप and I got just that." I said
"With me?" She stopped and I turned to face her "but we're opposites so why would आप want that knowing the chances?"
"Because... I-I प्यार आप Kate..." I कहा slowly while looking right in her eyes
She didn't say anything, just looked at me surprised "I tried to tell आप on the train but आप ran off before I could get it out, and now here I am telling आप right here." I continued seeing that she was too shocked to talk.
"Humphrey I-" She finally managed to start saying but I held up my paw to stop her, she didn't need to tell me when I already knew what her answer would be.
"I know it's crazy, an omega in प्यार with an alpha but it's true and I understand if आप don't प्यार me back, in fact I knew from the get go that this wouldn't work out. So now I will be leaving Jasper because I can't भालू to see आप married to another wolf."
"Y-Your leaving?" She कहा still in a surprised tone
"I'm afraid so, it's for my own good since I just want to हटाइए on and forget this pain I feel right now. I did this to myself so I should just accept the consequences" I hated speaking to her like this.
"N-no, आप can't leave! आप won't survive out there द्वारा yourself" She began to get emotional as we continued to stand there.
"I know Kate, but like I कहा I did this to myself" I argued
"If anyone's leaving then it should be me, it's all my fault and I feel so stupid about not noticing all this sooner" She suddenly stated
I didn't understand what she was talking about, I thought her mind was set on uniting the packs as her responsibility was told. "To notice what?" I asked confused
"To notice that... my दिल belongs to you..." She slowly admitted sitting down
If time wasn't already going slow than it sure was now for me, never had I expected her to say something like that to me. It was as if my pain of the last several hours had just been erased away, and now I feel guilty for thinking the things I did. She really did care for me like I did to her, but why did she treat me the way she did when we got home. I feel like I was falling and searching for something to hold on to just to stop all this and make things back to normal, I couldn't take all the ups and downs I had gone through so far and the दिन wasn't even half over yet.
Now it was my turn to be फ्रोज़न in time after hearing what she said, she continued on talking noticing that I wasn't going to respond "I am so sorry for the way I treated आप Humphrey, I was in a war with myself thinking of what was the right choice to go with... I wanted to protect आप until I could get my bearings straight and figure something out but that only ended up hurting you."
The और she कहा the और I hated myself for thinking that she only used me, and now here she was pouring her दिल out to me and apologizing for the wrong that she caused.
Her eyes began to tear up as she still spoke "I'm sorry I never told आप about the arranged marriage and believe me I hate it as much as आप probably do, what I'm saying is that I l-love आप too Humphrey."
A smiled creaked on my face as I felt my own eyes begin to water up at hearing those three lovely words, she loved me back. I walked up to her and embraced her in a hug which she quickly and strongly returned crying into the side of my neck. I didn't know how long we were like this but I continued to hold her close as I waited for her to settle down. When she finally did I pulled her away slowly and held her shoulders with my arms extended staring into her reddened eyes.
"Do आप forgive me?" She softly asked sounding worried about my answer
"I forgive आप Kate, just hearing that आप प्यार me back was और than enough" I replied
"Even after all that I did?"
"Yes we all make mistakes, it's really not in my nature to always hate या be upset and I almost forgot that today." I firmly replied "Now I just feel guilty for almost running away from आप and thinking that आप only used me, but I'm glad that I still stood up and finally told आप that I प्यार you."
She smiled "Oh shut up and just किस me"
Her nose quickly came into contact with mine as we shared our first real किस and boy was it something, our eyes closed as we saved this moment in time. It felt like we were the only ones around for miles and that all of my troubles in the world were suddenly all gone. Here I was making out with the प्यार of my life, a girl who wasn't even in my league and yet I had managed to steal her दिल as an omega.
This दिन has become the most life changing in my existence and I was happy with that even though I had been through hell and back in my mind. I didn't care about the future nor the past, I only cared about this moment of प्यार between Kate and I, I had all that I ever wanted and that was her love. Our kissed ended and we slowly pulled away from each other retuning to gaze into each other's eyes once again.
Normally this would be it, we would go on to marry and spend our lives together however things were much complicated than that. We may प्यार each other but that didn't mean that the alphas over omegas law was gone. Reality began to set in for me and it caused me to hang my head down knowing that there was no way we could be together here. Unless we magically changed something that allowed us to marry then Kate would still have to go through with uniting the packs even if she did प्यार me.
"What are we going to do?" I asked thinking that she had the same thing on her mind as did I
"I'm not sure..." She sounded as clueless as I did "but I sure am not going to go through with the marriage, maybe we can force my dad to reconsider..."
I knew that wouldn't work, if I knew the leader that was her father then I know he would still want her to do what was her responsibility. "Kate आप know your dad wouldn't do such a thing, the packs are counting on आप and Garth going through with your marriages to help benefit us all." I reasoned
"The pack is selfish if आप ask me, they expect us both to just give up our प्यार lives and freedom to be forced to live together so we all can continue to prosper. I don't प्यार him and I am pretty darn sure he doesn't प्यार me so I would be saving us both a life of regret and sorrow द्वारा calling off the wedding." She said
"I understand that, but I don't want to risk your parents separating us. I almost लॉस्ट आप once and I am defiantly not losing आप now right after we have confessed our love." I stated
"My parents would want me to be happy, besides it's going to take a lot to get me away from you" She कहा with a small smile
I smiled a little too "Of course they do, but I think they just want all of us to go through what they and our ancestors went through which is sticking to the law, but I as the lover of an alpha beg to differ." I said, I didn't know what was getting into me all of a sudden.
"What are आप suggesting we do?" She asked looking at me with her hazel eyes
A simple plan had come to me during this time, why not just runaway? We don't have to look back and we can go anywhere as long as we're together. "What I'm suggesting is that we have to escape"
I nodded my head "Yes, to a place where we'll be together as mates forever, we don't need to stay here and risk not being together."
"But my family is here, I can't just leave with आप because I'm sure my dad will send भेड़िया searching for us. And when they find us he's only going to outcast आप and force me to marry." She argued
"You are right about that, but I'm willing to risk it Kate." I कहा "I just want to be with you"
"You will Humphrey, but आप need to understand that I have a lot here so I can't just leave. Can we just try my idea and if things go bad then we can runaway together, sound good?" She कहा placing her paws on mine.
I sighed, there's no way I'm going to win arguing with her "Alright, lead the way" I finally agreed
"Thank you" She smiled and licked me on the cheek before getting up
I followed her as she led me back towards the मांद, डेन grounds, I began to grow nervous not knowing what her parents reaction will be. Maybe Kate was right and they would understand that she loved me instead of Garth like they probably thought. One thing I did know is that she wasn't going to leave me side, and that made me feel great inside. My mind began to wander as I put together everything that has happened, I went from being normal to going through hell until finally gaining what I desired the most.
A wild ride is what this past week has been, but the ride wasn't over until Kate and I were सुरक्षित together forever. The sun burned overhead as the दिन continued to be beautiful and full of life, entering the मांद, डेन grounds again the place felt like it was deserted since no one was around. I knew that with an event this major every भेड़िया was bound to be down in the valley to witness the marriage, but that wasn't going to be happening anymore, hopefully...
