For future referance, the group will be operating in first person point of view! I wrote this in other POVs just for the occasion of letting you all know where it all started.
The reason of war. The reason of hate.Prologue: There were once two young wolves that roamed throughout the land, travling long distances away from the place of their birth. They were beautiful sisters and known to attract the attention of many with their gleaming pelts and stunning blue eyes. They were the only remaining survivors of a strong and thriving pack that had been cut down by a mysterious disease. Though the sisters did not come from the same litter, they loved each other very much, and vowed they would protect each other. The oldest sister went by the name of Akantha; she was brave and very smart. The youngest sister was named Kyra and her fur shined of the brightest white. Kyra tended to be a bit more naive and curious, always taking risks much to Akantha's dismay.
As they wandered, they soon found themselves in a new territory, far away from any chance of getting the disease. The new land was plentiful of food and anything else they would need to live a comfortable life but as sheltered as Akantha tried to keep Kyra from the world, she could not keep her from the luring power of love. Kyra secretly wandered by herself at night and had encountered a male wolf, alpha of a small pack in the area. He was very strong looking with dark brown fur like that of the rocks that surrounded the area. His name was Vronti and soon the two became inseparable. With each passing night, there love for one another grew stronger and stronger and they wanted to run away together and start a family. Akantha soon found out of Vronti and her sister's intentions and she became enraged. She lashed out at Vronti and forced Kyra to retreat into the canyon lands far away from the male wolf.
Kyra began to despise her sister and their relationship became strained. Akantha was torn between keeping her sister's safety or her happiness. How could she possibly let her sister run away with some male that she barley knew; it all sounded insane to Akantha. She couldn't understand the love her sister had towards the stranger, it ws foreign. However, despite her best attempts Vronti would always find Kyra and she was of age to be on her own. Akantha gave up; she could no longer avoid the inevitable and it broke her heart to let her sister go. Not 3 days later, a powerful storm hit the canyon lands without warning. All three wolves had tried to escape together, trying to figure out how to get to higher ground. There was an argument between Vronti and Akantha, neither could decide the best way to get to safety as the rain poured hard. Akantha stated that though it was more dangerous, the best and quickest way would to climb up the rocky canyon walls. Vronti argued that her way was suicide; the best way would be to run through the canyon. They separated, not being able to decide; Akantha traveling up the slippery slopes, and Kyra and her new mate would try and run for it. Kyra was extremly worried about her sister and turned back to find her without Vronti noticing because the rain was so loud. The water levels rose faster than any of them could have imagined and a massive wall of water raged through the canyon floor. Vronti managed to get to a higher rock but Kyra was not as lucky. She clung to a crackling dead tree, surrounded by the strong currents of water. Vronti froze to the rock he was perched on. He gazed at the water in horror, trembling in slilence; he couldn't move. Akantha caught up to them from the top of the cliff, yelling at Vronti to grab Kyra who was still struggling to hang on to the breaking branches. She didn't understand why he wasn't moving but in a flash of lightening, everyone flinched and when they looked back, Kyra had disappeared in the rushing brown waters.
After the flood subsided, the two wolves desperately searched for their loved one. They searched for days, weeks, which soon turned to months but to no avail. They never saw Kyra ever again. Akantha blamed the death of her cherished sister on Vronti; she vowed that she would never forgive him for his crime. She would see to it that he would never have peace in his life. She would make sure to banash him and anyone who followed him to the Burn Lands. Vronti claimed that it was Akantha's fault that they were in the canyons in the first place, it was her stubbornness that had killed her sister. He in turn vowed that he would one day chase Akantha out of the territory for the death of his precious mate; he wouldn't allow her to live in such a prosperous land. He wanted her to suffer just as he did. Thus begins their journeys, a fight for the land...The Meeting:
A few months had passed since the death of Kyra and both Alphas had parted ways after decreeing war. Vronti and Akantha had agreed to have a meeting in the rocky territory that belonged to the Astrapi Pack....
Akantha traveled up the rocky path that lead to the outskirts of Vronti's land. It was cold and the breeze chilled her to the bone, she couldn't understand what kind of savages would choose to live in this forsaken area. She was nervous about going into enemy territory, especially since she was alone. She knew that Vronti already had a few pack mates and she didn't like the fact that she was outnumbered. Regardless, she had to keep moving forward and put on a brave face. She would never give into her fears. A large dark wolf appeared at the edge of a rocky cliff. His piercing emerald colored eyes glared down at the silver she wolf, obviously less than pleased she was there.
"Vronti." Akantha growled out, sounding less like a greeting and more like a threat.
"It's about time you showed up you old hag." Vronti replied with a sneer.
She growled a warning at the wolf. She wasn't much older than him, she just appeared and acted... wise for her age.
"Why did you call me here? I don't want to be here all day." He replied impatiently.
Akantha sighed and knew he was right. She didn't wan't to be here any longer than she had to be. " I just wanted to let you know I have claimed the border of my lands and... make a special request." She said, almost under her breath. She hated being at the mercy of anyone.
Vronti laughed heavily. "Ha! You want to set a border? You're insane, give me one reason why I shouldn't just chase you out of the land here and now!" He barked out.
She pressed her ears flat to her head. "If you wan't a fight, we should make it fair. Only cowards would attack a lone wolf." she replied, her voice monotone. Vronti stopped laughing and a more serious look held his face.
"What the hell do you want?" He asked finally, his voice deep.
"I'm requesting that you give me a full season to gain my own pack. I have created a den in the southern territory, it is far enough from your hunting grounds so there shouldn't be a problem of hunting rights. I also-"
"No! There's no way I will agree to this." Vronti interpreted.
"Listen and let me finish." She said in an irritated manner. "My sister died because of your rash decisions so it's the least you could do."
Vronti barked out in anger, a fierce snarl tearing from deep within his chest. "It was your fault! If you would have just come with us instead of going off on your own, we would have been fine! Kyra would still be alive if you didn't have to be right all the time!"
She flinched but glared up at the agouti pelted wolf with her lavender colored eyes. "Fine. Since it seems we can't come to terms, why don't we find out who has the most superior leadership skills once and for all. We both raise our packs, train them, protect them, and when the time comes... When the time comes we shall truly see who deserves to claim this land." She said lowly.
"Interesting proposal." Vronti said, narrowing the eyes. "I accept your request then. I am interested in seeing who is the best leader as well."
Akantha nodded. "Well it seems like we have come to an agreement for the first time. In the future, we will meet at the golden Elm tree between our borders, it's a pain crawling over these rocks." She said rolling her eyes. She didn't really want him knowing exactly where her den was anyways.
"Very well Akantha, see you next season then." Vronti said with a grin, his confidence beaming off his face. "You're going to need a whole season." he added.
"We'll see. Until then." She replied coldly. With that, she turned and left, her bright fur standing out harshly against the rocks. Only time would tell the fates of the two packs now.
