Amber had always loved wolves, ever since she was a little girl. She grew up loving these fast, loyal and mysterious creatures. She had an unreal love for them. An obsession. Her walls were covered with photographs, her own and from magazines, drawings and pictures of every type of wolf that was out there. Whether it was the Maned Wolf of Africa or the Grey Wolf of the Americas, she could tell you all about them if you asked her. These animals were graceful, powerful, strong, loyal, pack members and a species of the canine family. Canis lupus or as we call them Grey Wolf, was her favourite above all else.
As a child, her parents saw nothing wrong with her having a love for these wild animals. They even thought it was cute how she'd draw little doodles of her with a wolf family. As she got older, her love for these animals put her right in the middle of a war sometimes. People would often shoot these magnificent animals who came to their farms or onto their property. Amber would get angry with these people and often go to their house and ask them why they shot the animals. They would try and explain to her that it was the circle of life and that they had to die in order for her and them to live. The livestock was often unharmed, but it would still make Amber very upset. How could someone do that to such an amazing creature like the wolf?
Now Amber's 18 and she's in her senior year of high school and although her love of wolves never perished, it was definitely something that wasn't on her mind as much. She had classes to go to, photography lessons to take, guitars to fix and friends to hang out with. Her infatuation with wolves seemed to be short-lived, or so it seemed like. That is until one day on the news, a news caster shows a gruesome image of wolves being shredded and torn to bits. Amber is outraged. How could someone do this to these creatures who deserve to have a home just like us, who have pups to feed just like us humans do. She wants to find out everything she can about these attacks of wolves.
One day while she's out in the woods by her house, she comes upon a grisly scene. An old hunter's trap and what appears to be a dead wolf. Until she got closer to the trap that is. The wolf's eyes fluttered open and bared it's teeth at her. Its ears shot straight back, glaring at her. Somehow Amber wasn't scared, she was sad and angry at whoever had been so careless as it leave this poor wolf to suffer and die with its foot caught in the trap. She didn't bring anything to help with the wolf, but as she looked on at the scene, she knew she had to do something for the wolf. Whether it was to try ad save it or to lessen the misery it must have been suffering.
Upon returning to the scene after a few hours, the wolf looked worse than what it had appeared. She brought all the necessary items she could think of in order to help the poor wolf to free it from the rusty hunter's trap it's foot was caught in. Finally, after hours of work and coaxing the wolf, she was able to free it from the trap. The wolf slowly rose and started to limp off. It looked back at her and dropped its head and then continued on its way. After watching the wolf leave, she decided to try and remove the trap from the ground so she could dispose of the metal that had been rusted out from the rain and other elements of the weather.
Months pass and before she knows it there's another news story on wolves before another news story on wolves being attacked and their numbers dropping. Amber takes it into her own hands to try and help the wolves, but there are more sinister things lurking in the shadows, waiting, watching, hoping to get ever closer to Amber.

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 Watching the whole thing unfolding right before his eyes, the male wanted so badly to help her out. He honestly didn't know what was going on, but the blonde was going to get her ass chewed out. As he watched Amber standing up for herself, he felt proud of her. He didn't think women did that anymore. When she picked up her journal, and made her way out of the room, was when the silence was broken by the blonde named Gwen. [i "I swear to God, that girl is going to get her ass beat"] she hissed.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 Bromson turned his attention to her, and cocked his head to the side. [b "Do you really think that's going to happen? You were the one who teased her about her passion, and I don't blame her for calling you those names"] he said in a calm manner. The blonde turned her eyes to him, and she smirked a bit. [i "What? Just because your new here, doesn't mean you know shit. As far as you know, I have people out there waiting for her"] she cooed. She looked him up and down, and licked her lips lightly.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 [i "Honestly, I don't know why you are defending her. You don't know her, and you sure as hell don't need a girl like her around. I'll gladly show you where everything's at if you want. I'm Gwen by the way"] she said, as she leaned against the male's desk. He sighed lightly wishing she would shut up, and leave him alone. [b "I'm Bromson, and I don't think I want a dumb blonde showing me around, I deal with your type at home"] he said. He then gathered up his books, and shoved them into his bag.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 He stood, and before he could move any farther she was in front of him. Her hands on his chest. [i "I promise you this, I'm not like those bitches you deal with. I'm a real woman, and I can prove it to you"] she cooed looking up at him. He reached up and took both of her hands in one of his. [b "I'm not interested at all Gwen. Excuse me"] he said letting her hands go. He moved past her, wondering where the bloody teacher was this whole time. He honestly didn't care though.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 [i "You are going to regret telling me no Bromson! I will make sure of it!"] she called out. The male raised his hand and flipped her off. He wasn't in the mood for these childish games. He sure as hell wasn't in the mood to deal with Gwen either. He was more worried about Amber, and wondered if she was okay. He didn't really know what way she had gone either. He stopped at one of the windows, and spotted her moving towards the parking lot. Maybe he could catch up to her after all.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 He was surprised that none of the teachers had heard what was going on, but that didn't bother him any. He was more worried about the woman, than anything else. He slid his pack onto his back, and broke out into a jog. He ran down the stairs, and out the back doors to the parking lot. He stopped for a moment, and scanned the area for the woman. Then he spotted her pink hair, and he jogged over towards her. [b "Hey! Wait a minute!"] he called out. He finally caught up to her, and he grabbed her arm.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 He pulled her to a stop, and he stopped himself. [b "Are you alright? Gwen had no right to do what she did to you. I'm kinda proud that you stuck up to her though. Sometimes that's all a bully needs, is someone to put them in their place"] he said with a warm smile. He knew he was rambling but that didn't matter. [b "I'm Bromson by the way"] he said lightly. He dropped his hand from her arm, and waited for her to either book it and run, or stay and talk to him.]]
[Poppins [center [size12 Amber still sat on the road, foot on the brake pedal. [i I can't believe that just happened. That couldn't have happened. I MUST be seeing things..] she thought to herself as she gathered herself after the close call with the wolf. She shook her head and sighed, brushing the hair out of her face. Taking her foot off the brake and pushing the gas, the car slowly moved forward. Gaining speed, she went up a small hill and drove for about another ten minutes before she got to her house again. Pulling into the driveway, she unbuckled her seatbelt and got out of the car. She left the engine running and darted up the front steps. She had her keys out and ready to unlock the door.
Roland was barking and Amber could clearly hear him. [#8A2BE2 "Settle down boy!"] she said with a chuckle and opened the door to the house. She squeezed in through the door between Roland and it and shut the door. She opened the closet and grabbed her running shoes for PE class this morning. [#8A2BE2 "Mr. Richards is gonna kill me!!!"] she sighed and patted Roland on the head. [#8A2BE2 "See you after school~"] she smiled and pulled the door opened and closed it behind her. Locking it, she quickly went down the stairs and to the car. Luckily, it hadn't died on her, seeing as she still needed to get some gas from the station a block from the school. It would have to wait until lunch when she had the chance to get out for the hour. She quickly put the car into gear and drove down the road and to the school as fast as she could.
Amber wanted to put the radio on, but was too distracted by her racing thoughts about this mornings' events. They didn't make sense. The dream she had the night before, it didn't make sense to her either. The wolf she had seen in her dream and this morning, it was like they were the exact same wolf. They had to have been. She recognized his coat and how scarred his muzzle was. His eyes were the most striking and she could remember them still as if she had just seen them. The wolf had meaning, but what was it? Why did this wolf cross her path now and not earlier or later? And then it hit her. Her love for wolves had never perished, but it wasn't something she had focused on for a while. Her sketches were old and so were her journals about tracking and sighting them. Was this a sign for her to continue on with her love for them and go back into the wilds to find and try and learn about their lives as much and as close as possible?
She shook her head, trying to wipe the thoughts from her mind. It was foolish to think that this sighting and dream was a [i sign] for her to continue on with her passion for wolves that she had to set aside when she entered high school. She wiped the back of her hand across her forehead and opened the window a crack. She was getting hot and had no idea why. Amber began to feel nauseous and pulled the car over to the side of the road just before entering town, opened the car door and emptied her the contents of her stomach onto the ground below her. She dry heaved and then picked herself back up, wiped her mouth and sat back in the drivers seat as if this was the worst thing to have happen right now. In her case it was. She was already late for school, more specifically PE class. Mr. Richards was stubborn at times and often found tardiness as an excuse to slack off. She hoped he would be in a good mood today. She grabbed the water bottle from the cup holder, took a gulp of it, swished it around her mouth and spat it onto the ground.
Amber didn't feel great and with what happened this morning, it left her feeling rather anxious and confused. She slowly pulled herself together and got back onto the road again. She looked at the time and groaned. Mr. Richards was not going to be happy to see her when she got into the gym, late as ever. Driving, she turned on the radio to a soft thrum so she could listen to some music and ease her mind. It seemed to help and all too soon she saw the school. She pulled into the parking lot, found a spot and parked the car. She gathered her bag and shoes quickly, took the keys out of the ignition and opened the door. She got out of the old car and shut the door behind her and locked it. Hurrying off in the direction of the doors, she made sure she had everything with her. She quickly went up the front steps and slid in through the half opened door.
Going to the office to sign in and then to the gym to give Mr. Richard's the late slip, she had a sinking feeling in her gut that even with her effort to have everything for PE class and get here on time, he wouldn't understand her predicament and would have no sympathy whatsoever.
She got to the gym and before opening the door, she took a deep breath. She took the door handle in her hand and pulled the door open. To her surprise, the gym was empty. [#8A2BE2 "Shit, today must be an in-class day.."] she said aloud. She dreaded in-class PE days more than actual PE days.
Amber hurried off up a flight of stairs and to the PE classroom. It only took her a few minutes to get there, but she stopped short of the door to catch her breath. She was one of the last students coming and she was relieved that she wasn't the only one that was going to be spoken to after class by the teacher. Walking into the room, she felt a few pair of eyes on her and when she looked to see who it was, she nearly stopped dead in her tracks. They didn't make direct eye contact, but she was sure he had seen her looking at him. She quickly looked away and found her seat which wasn't very close to the new male student they had. She found her face getting hot and quickly pulled out her PE textbook and notebook and opened them to yesterday's work to see if she had missed anything while doing her homework last night.
[#00CED1 "Look at who decided to show up..."] she heard a voice say. She looked up and saw a body standing in front of her desk. [#8A2BE2 "What do you want, Gwen?"] Amber asked, gritting her teeth and trying her best to plaster a smile on her face when she finally made eye contact with the skinny, blonde female who stood directly in front of her desk. [#00CED1 "Ouuuu~ What's this?"] the other girl asked, smirking as she picked up a small leather bound book from the desk that Amber sat at. Amber looked at the book and her jaw dropped. She pushed herself from her chair and lunged for the book. Gwen saw and pulled her hand out of the way and over Amber's head. ["Give that back, Gwen! It's mine!"] Amber pleaded, swinging back around on her heel and trying to grab the book from Gwen's hand. Unfortunately it was out of reach for the pink-haired girl who only stood 5'2 compared to the much taller, Gwen, who stood at 5'11". Amber did all she could to get the book back before she finally gave up.
She watched Gwen open the leatherbound journal and slowly flip through the pages. She watched the other female get a big grin on her face and it looked like she was ready to burst out laughing. [#00CED1 "OH! This is rich! Amber!!! I had no idea you were so obsessed with wolves!!! Jesus! Do you have anything else to do with your life other than to draw wolves and fantasize about being one all day?"] Gwen mocked, throwing the book up into the air and onto the ground. She laughed loudly and a few of the students who were sitting close by began to laugh at Amber as well for the same reason. [#00CED1 "I bet you'd probably even want one as a boyfriend or something, seeing as your so obsessed with them!!"] Gwen barked loudly, grinning ear to ear. Amber just stood there, too embarrassed to say anything. It wasn't until Gwen said the last thing, that Amber didn't really listen to.
She shook her head and smiled a bit. Amber moved forward and calmly picked up the book and once she stood again, she looked Gwen right in the eye. [#8A2BE2 "At least I'm not a slutty little brat who picks on people she thinks are less than equal to her. Gwen, you are the stupidest person I have ever met. If you read books, you'd know its physically impossible for humans and wolves to mate due to their genetic make up and the differences in DNA. Aside from that, we are a completely different species than they are. Secondly, it's not an obsession. It's called a passion. I photograph them and do sketches of them in order to study them and to hopefully help preserve them for the future generations to see. Nothing that you would care about, you dumb bimbo, "] Amber said and then turned, grabbing her bag and stuffing her books into her bag. She swung the bag over her back and walked out of the classroom without a second look back. Once Amber was out of the classroom and clear of the door, she took off down the hall and down the stairs and out the back door to the parking lot.]]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 A small howl rose above the noise inside, and it made Bromson look over his shoulder, and his friend just shook his head. [i "It could be some chick wanting a good mating or something"] the said with a small shrug of his shoulders. [b "Something could be really wrong though. That was Briella, I know her howl anywhere"] he said, slight worry edging into his voice. The other male looked at Bromson, and narrowed his eyes. [i "She could be looking for you, wanting to talk about your relationship"] he snapped.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 Bromson just shook his head lightly, and looked back towards the window. The howl was heard again, and he stood. [b "I need to see what's wrong. Something is really off"] he said. His friend rolled his eyes, [i "Don't come crawling back to me when you bed her"] he hissed. Bromson looked towards the other and growled. [b "Just because you can't have her, doesn't mean you have to be an asshole Derrick"] he snapped back. Derrick's brown eyes locked on his. [i "You shouldn't have led her on then either Bromson"]]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 [b "Listen, I don't wanna get into this with you. I know you love her, and think that I led her on, but I never did. I didn't want anything to do with her. She was the one following me around like a lost puppy. I didn't plan on this. So if you were a real friend, you would understand that"] he snapped back. He wasn't in the mood to fight with his Alpha, and he stormed out of the cabin, and headed into the woods. The wind was kicking up, and made him shudder lightly.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 As he went deeper into the woods, her heard Briella's howl again, and he sighed a bit. [b "Briella, come out, I'm here now"] he called out softly. A moment later, a black and white spotted wolf emerged from behind the trees. Her golden eyes locked on him, and then she shifted into her human form. [#FF00FF "I was hoping you would have come out sooner. You and I need to talk Bromson"] she said. The male handed her his coat, seeing as she was fully naked in front of him. [b "Use this first"] he said lightly.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 The female took the coat from him, and slid her arms into the sleeves. She then buried her nose into the neck of the coat, and took a breath. [#FF00FF "This smells so much like you.. I can't get you out of my head Brom.. I really can't.. Why won't you become my mate?"] she asked, her voice breaking on the last couple of words. What was he supposed to say to her? That his best friend was the one for her, and not him. He rubbed his face with his hands and took a breath, before speaking.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 [b "I know you have feelings for me Briella. I look at you like a little sister, and nothing more. The man you should be falling for is Derrick. He's Alpha, and he could take care of you better than I could. Why do you even wanna be with someone like me anyway? I'm an asshole, and I sleep around like every night"] he said lightly. He saw the look in her eyes, and he felt his heart breaking for her. He hurt her, and he could tell. He stood there and waited for her to say something.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 [#FF00FF "I know you don't care about me, and I do care about Derrick, but he's not the one I want. I want you Bromson.. I've always wanted you. The moment you first entered our pack, I knew there was something special about you. Something wonderful, and amazing. You sparked something inside of me, that I thought died out a long time ago. I want you to be my mate, and no one else's. I can help you change.."] she said lightly, as tears stung her eyes. That made Bromson angry for some reason.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 [b "You don't want me. You want me for the sex, and that's it. That's all I'm ever good for. I'm good at pleasing women, and I'm sorry to break it to you sweetheart, I'm not gonna fuck with you again. Go ahead and cry all you want, but it's done. It's over, you and I aren't meant to be together"] he hissed. The look of pure hurt in her eyes made him feel slightly guilty. But he stood his ground, and let his words hang in the air. [#FF00FF "Seeing as you feel so strongly about this okay.."] was all she said.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 She threw his jacket off and onto the ground, shifted back into her wolf form and ran off. The male stood there watching her. He didn't care though. Finally she was off his back. He then reached down for his coat, picked it up and headed back to his cabin. He locked himself inside for the rest of the night, and went about his business getting ready for bed. Finally he crawled under the comforter and let the darkness wash over him. His night filled with nothing but darkness, no dreams, no nightmares, pure nothing.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 [center [b [u The Next Morning.]]]]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 When the male's alarm went off, he groaned lightly and rolled onto his side. He slammed his hand down against the alarm clock, and silenced it. The nights events came rushing back, and he groaned lightly. He knew he had made a mistake, but he didn't care. He told Briella how he felt, and if she didn't want to understand that, then so be it. He rolled out of bed, and he stood stretching his arms over his head. Today he would be starting at a new college, and he was kind of nervous about it.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 He had promised Derrick he would interact more with humans, and that he would keep an eye out on a woman that believed in their world. He was just upset that it had to be today. He just wanted to stay home, and sleep. He went over to his closet, and found a pair of jeans, and an older t-shirt. He then shoved them into his back pack, along with his other supplies he would need. As he was getting ready, someone knocked on his door. [b "It's open"] he called out. A moment later, the front door opened, and closed.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 Derrick walked into the room, grinning from ear to ear. [i "I don't know what the fuck you told Briella, but she agreed to a date with me. She seemed really hurt, but I promised her I would make it worth her while. So whatever you did, thank you"] he said, clapping his hand onto the other's back. Bromson just shrugged a bit. [b "All I did was tell her the truth, that's why she was so hurt. But I'm happy for you"] he said with a smile. [i "You are one amazing asshole"] his friend said.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 [i "Are you ready for today? I heard she was out by the park with her dog, and her dog noticed something, so Denise ended up leaving"]]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 [b "Honestly, I'm as ready as I will ever be. Just gonna go for a morning run before I head into town"]]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 [i "Alright, if I were you, I would watch out for that mutt. He's pretty in tune with what's around him"] Derrick warned. Bromson smiled at the male, and picked up his back pack slinging it over his shoulder.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 [b "I promise I will. I gotta get going"] he said. Derrick nodded, and left the room. Bromson wasn't that far behind, and he broke out into a jog, jogging towards his favorite spot. He then took off his clothes, and shifted into his wolf form. It felt good being on all fours. The male broke out into a full blown run, not even caring about the other's howling behind him. He would tell them how his day went, whenever he wandered home. As he was running, it helped clear his mind, and that's what he needed the most.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 When the black wolf broke out from the trees, he didn't see the car at first, but he kept running. The car came to a stop, and when he was safely across the street, he stopped and turned around. He spotted the pink haired woman, and his eyes locked on her's. She seemed as startled as he was. He let out a huff, and booked it into the trees. He went back to his spot, shifted back and got dressed. He pulled his phone out of his bag's pocket and texted Derrick.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 [b [i Nearly got hit by the woman, I'm okay though. I'm heading into town now. Won't have my phone on much. See you later tonight.]] He hit send, and slid his phone into the pocket of his jeans. He then grabbed his bag, and walked towards town. He would need to get a car, and he would have to start driving it around town soon. So people wouldn't think he was crazy or something. He sighed lightly when the campus came into view. His heart hammered inside of his chest, as he walked to one of the buildings.]]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [size13 He made sure to have some classes with the pink haired woman, and this was one of them. He was one of the first ones there, and he moved to a desk. He sat down, opened his bag and pulled out the right books. He then leaned back, and waited for everyone else to file inside. Sure enough, there she was. The woman that almost hit him. He tore his eyes away, and looked towards the professor, and waited for the day to be over with. He hoped he wouldn't have to interact with the woman, but he had a strong feeling he would be.]]
[h3 [center [size16 -Dream-]]]
[Raleway [center [size12 She couldn't see a thing, running through the woods. It was pitch black and even though her eyes couldn't see a thing, her feet carried her. They carried her through trees, over fallen logs and rocks, and safely over holes almost without a sound. Amber kept going. Her lungs burned and her throat hurt but she kept pushing. She stumbled on a rock and gathered herself before she fell to the ground. She saw glimpses of different coloured shadows and they disappeared as soon as they appeared.
She saw white flashes every now and again. They were blinding. Amber couldn't see right after each flash for a few moments. She suddenly tripped, her foot catching on a root that was growing out of the ground. Her hands automatically put themselves out in front of her, but something else caught her before she hit the forest floor below her. She had shut her eyes momentarily and then reopened them. Her hands were grabbing onto a patch of fur that was soft but also somewhat stiff to the touch.
Upon further inspection, Amber realized that she was touching a wolf. She looked to the left and then the right and when she looked at the animal's face, she couldn't speak. His eyes were a beautiful golden-yellow colour with flecks of what looked like gold in them. His pupils were dilated in order to allow as much light in as possible. How was there light if it was pitch bla.... She slightly turned, looking up at the sky and the forest around her. It had completely changed.
The night sky was black and the stars were brilliant. The trees above had opened up so much that she could see the Big Dipper, The Little Dipper, Orion's Belt and a planet, but she wasn't sure of what planet it was. The moon was full and she stared at it for a moment. She turned back to the wolf and he was still standing there with what seemed to be a curious look in his eyes. She didn't want to look away, blink or do anything to ruin the moment she was in. Amber wanted to be like this forever. She didn't want anything about this picturesque moment to change.
There was a bang and then a flash. Everything went bright white again just like it had been doing before when she was running. She closed her eyes and squeezed them shut tightly. She couldn't feel the fur beneath her fingers anymore. She wanted to yell out to the wolf and call him back to her but her voice would not leave her mouth, it was like she was paralyzed.... and then she realized she was. She was overcome with crippling fear.
Tears started to roll down her face as she screamed silently. She tried moving her legs but they wouldn't move an inch. They wouldn't budge no matter how hard she willed them to move. Nothing in her body was working or responding right now except for her breathing. She tried to focus on her door way and saw a figure appear and then disappear. They reappeared right in front of her, beside her bed. The person she saw standing there was her mother. Words finally came pouring out of Amber's mouth. [#8A2BE2 "Mom? Is that you?"] She asked, staring. Not quite believing that the figure she stared at was her mother. She tried to sit up in her bed but she didn't have the strength to move herself. Amber slumped against the wall and continued to stare at the figure. The woman smiled, took Amber's hand and glanced down. When she looked back up, the smile was still there, but her eyes were different. Amber couldn't explain how but the woman she was looking at and who was holding her hand, wasn't her mother. [#5F9EA0 "It's time to wake up honey,"] the older woman said. Amber wasn't sure what the lady went. Wasn't she already awake? Unless... Everything went black. And when the darkness faded.. everything was different.]]]

[Poppins [center [size12 Amber awoke in her bed, sitting straight up in the sheets, sweating. Her tank top was saturated in sweat. Beads of perspiration rolled down her forehead and cheeks. She used the back of her hand to wipe the sweat away. Her dog, Roland, a Husky, Border Collie, Retriever mix sat on her bed, looking at her with the exact same look that the wolf had given her in her dream. [#8A2BE2 "Roland, you wouldn't believe the dream I just had..."] she shook her head and wiped her eyes. Amber looked at her clock and the illuminated screen said 5:20AM.
It was just about time to get up anyways. She had to get to her classes today and then catch up on homework after being sick for a week. Sighing and shaking her head, she slipped out of her bed and her feet hit the floor with a soft thud. She stripped off her sweat soaked tank top and changed her panties since they felt a bit damp as well. Changing into a fresh pair, she slid into a pair of grey sweat pants, a white tank top and a black hoodie. [#8A2BE2 "Roland, do you wanna go out boy?"] She asked the canine who was still sitting on her bed, looking at her and wagging his tail. She smiled, patted her leg, mouthed the word 'come' and Roland happily jumped off the bed and landed on the floor with a thud. He trotted over to her, still wagging his tail. [#8A2BE2 "Let's go for a pee,"] she yawned and stretched her arms up over her head and then down slightly to pet the dog on the head and run her hands over his body.
Roland wagged his tail more, leaning into Amber slightly as she pet him lovingly. She smiled and stood back up, keeping her hand on him. She slowly moved away and walked towards the front door with him right by her side. She slipped on a pair of old sneakers and grabbed her coat, a doggie bag and Roland's leash from the closet. She clipped his leash to his collar and put on her coat, sliding her arms in first and then zipping it up. Amber stuffed the bag into her coat pocket and grabbed her keys from the hooks beside the front door. Reaching towards the door handle, her fingers twitched slightly before making contact with the cool metal. Her fingers grasped and curled around the handle and with a slight turn the door opened.
Walking outside with Roland into the crisp fall air was nice. It was refreshing after what she had just gone through in her sleep. Amber shivered slightly, closing the door behind her and locking it. She descended down the small flight of stairs with Rolland following close behind her. Once at the bottom, she let Roland in front of her and then tugged on the leash lightly to ask him to wait for her. They started to walk down the street before turning right onto a different street.
Amber and Roland went to the park that was close by to the house that she was living in for the time being. She let Roland off leash and started to walk with him around the perimeter of the park. He didn't stray off too far, always looking back at Amber every so often to see if she was still following. She smiled to herself. Roland was her best friend. She couldn't imagine life without him right now. He was just an amazing dog and she had had him since he was 8 weeks old. He was 3 1/2 now and still acted very much like a puppy, but very well behaved for a dog of his mixed breed.
He was a mutt but Amber loved him and couldn't see herself with any other dog. In the back of her mind though, she always knew that one day he would grow old and would need to be taken care of properly. And once that was over, decide how she would want him to pass onto the afterlife and into heaven. She felt sad whenever she thought about these particular thoughts, but cuddling, petting or going out for a walk with Roland usually helped. The few street lights in the park always seemed to be flickering when she came here. The pathway was dimly lit and poorly kept for a public place. Not many people ventured to this particular park, especially at this hour of the morning. It wasn't odd to see a few people out and about during this time, even on the weekend.
Amber wasn't paying attention and almost ran into Roland who had stopped dead center in the path. She looked up and noticed him staring off into the distance. [#8A2BE2 "Roland, what's up boy?"] she whispered, still looking for what he was looking at. She knew him well and knew when something was up or off. Looking art him, she wondered what was bothering him. Was he trying to warn her of something that he sensed but she didn't? Was she in danger and didn't know it? Was he trying to protect her from someone or something?
Amber couldn't tell but the way he was acting started to bother her. She looked up one last time and didn't see anything. She slowly made her way to his side and latched the leash back onto his collar. He turned, looking at her and barked lightly. Whatever was there, must not be a threat, or moved on. She pulled out her phone, checking the time and was astonished to see that it was already 6:03.
Amber didn't realize how long her and Roland had been out. [#8A2BE2 "Let's go home boy,"] she called softly, tugging on the leash to get his attention further. They started to walk towards home and in no time at all they were finally at the front door. She unlocked the metal lock, opened it and let Roland come in behind her, the leash draped over his back. Amber turned and closed the door behind her and locked the door again.
Once in and with the door locked, Amber took off her coat and shoes and put them in the closet. She let Roland off the leash and off he went into the house. She hung the leash up on the hook and went to her room to get ready for the day. Once she figured out what she was going to wear, she went to the bathroom the shower quickly. The hot water felt nice against her clammy skin. She groaned as she finished her shower, the dream she had still heavy on her mind. Turning off the water, she pulled back the shower curtain and stepped out onto a plush bathmat that was placed just outside of the shower.
Amber quickly towel dried her locks of bright pink hair and wrapped herself in the same towel. She took a deep breath, opened the bathroom door, scurried to her bedroom and closed the door quickly. She slipped into a fresh pair of underwear and bra and put on a pair of dark wash jeans, a black and white short sleeve shirt and a plain black hoodie. She slid some socks onto her feet and then grabbed her make up bag and hurried off to the bathroom again. Quickly applying her make up, brushing her teeth and putting some leave in conditioner in her hair before leaving the bathroom once more and going to the kitchen. She grabbed her bag that was sitting by the table and grabbed her homework, stuffing it into her bag. Amber whistled and Roland came trotting from the living room.
She prepared Roland's breakfast and then set the metal bowl down on the floor by her feet. Roland came up to it and sat down in front of it, looking at Amber for permission to go ahead and eat. [#8A2BE2 "Go ahead Roland,"] she smiled and he darted at the food, taking mouthfuls of food and chewing it happily. She pat him on the side gently and picked up her bag. Walking towards the front door again, she grabbed her car keys from the hook and hit the automatic engine start button. It had been an hand-me-down from her brother, Rick, but it had been a great one to say the least. The car had saved her ass multiple times and not to mention, her brother had always been there for her which was nice. She was grateful to have someone like her brother in her life. She could hear Roland finishing up his breakfast. [#8A2BE2 "I'll be home for lunch, don't destroy the house!"] she called out to him and he barked as if to confirm or deny any of her worries. She shook her head and headed out the door.
Getting in the car, she drove out of the driveway and headed on her way to school. It had been cool the night before so the car was taking a few extra minutes to heat up. Amber decided to turn on some music for the drive which was about 20 minutes from her house. She lived just inside the city and that worked for her. She wasn't involved too much in the city life anyways. Amber kept to herself mostly and she liked it like that. Her few friends at school ha been pretty preoccupied with their own lives and that didn't bother her in the slightest.
While she drove, she hummed to the songs that came on and then started to softly sing. A thought popped into her head and then she remembered that she had forgotten to grab an extra pair of shoes today for PE class today. Amber sighed, shaking her head. Looking at the clock, she realized she would be late if she turned back now. It was better than getting a 0 for participation today. She gritted her teeth, pulled over to the shoulder of the road and then turned the vehicle around, speeding off in the direction of her house again. And then she saw [i him]. The same wolf from her dream the night before dart across the road in front of her car. Amber slammed on the breaks, causing her car to come to a sudden halt. The wolf had made it safely to the other side, but it had given Amber quite a surprise.
They looked at each other for a moment and that moment seemed to last forever. It was like the moment she had shared with the wolf in her dream, but it was a moment she would never forget. All too soon, the wolf turned and trotted off into the woods that it was heading for when it crossed the road. She watched it move off into the dense forest across from her and sighed. Sitting back in her seat, she couldn't believe what had just happened. [i 'Did that really just happen?'] she asked herself, not quite believing that she just dreamed of this wolf and now he was appearing out of nowhere. How was this possible?]]]
