The last bell of the day. You know, your never that grateful of life until you hear that last bell.
School is over for the day; and the weekend comes to replace it.
Everyone walks out of the class cheering. Forgot to mention it's spring break!
I see my great friend Destiny run up to me from all the way down the hall from Animal Science.
"Ah Dakota, it's a beautiful day. The sun us shining, the bird's are chirping and the wolves are," She paused and waited for me to finish her sentence. Destiny and I always do this. Our school mascot is a wolf and I think they are the most beautiful creatures ever made by God.
"Growling!" We both made growling noises and the people surrounding us made growling noises as well, but one is supposed to howl. When we heard Jack McMahon howl, other students and teachers howled with them. Everyone laughed as we saw a puppy try to howl from Animal Science. Everyone loved Buster.
"To thy secret hide-out!" Destiny yelled and grabbed my wrist. Our secret hide-out was this clearing with a lake in the forest. Destiny and I are sure that we are the only people that know of it.
Because if people wanted to look for something beautiful, they wouldn't look just on the outside of things. You have to look deeper. You have to look on the inside.
Which is exactly what Destiny and I did!
No literally when we were first exploring the woods we came across creepy shit but went in anyways like yolo and tada! Beauty at its finest right there.
Sure, you have to walk half a mile, cross a bridge-AKA a log over a creek, and then walk another half mile and BAM, your there at a lake with flowers and tree's and every time there are different wolves there. We were excited for what we were gonna see.
When we got to the clearing I couldn't believe my eyes. There were three wolves.
There was a huge Autumn colored wolf, a black and white wolf-but it wasn't as big as the other wolf, and a gray wolf-it was the smallest one. The wind blew lightly and I knew they would find us here.
But when the Autumn and gray wolf froze, I knew it was a bad sign. I just didn't have the heart to leave.
But when they finally looked over, the Autumn wolf and I made eye contact, my breath was caught in my throat at the sight. I looked towards Destiny and she was looking at the gray wolf. I have to say he was beautiful, but not as beautiful as the Autumn wolf.
I took the courage to walk up to it slowly. It was about twenty feet away and I didnt want to scare it off. Destiny looked at me like I was crazy, cause these wolves weren't the playful one's that we have encountered.
As I was making my way towards the wolf I tripped over a twig.
"AH!" I scream and I fall over the little hill and land on my butt. I looked towards Destiny-who I may add is on the ground dying from laughter. I look towards the wolves and see that they are smiling and rolling on the ground.
"Wow thanks guys! Love to see how much you really care." I say with a straight face and the Autumn one comes running up to me. I brace myaelf for the impact if it jumps on my lap, but it doesn't. Instead it goes behind me and lifts my arms up, But I felt tingles too. I think my arm went to sleep though.
The wolf helped me up and put it's face in my hands. I smile and kneel down and start petting him.
I was scratching behind it's ears and he closed his eyes from pleasure. I smiled and giggled by how it was acting. It lays down on the ground and I gave him a belly rub.
"You're enjoying this aren't you?" I asked and he shook his head yes and rolled around in the leaves. I laughed a bit by it's playful behavior. I looked towards Destiny and see she was doing the same thing with the Gray wolf. I laughed so hard when the wolf and her started tumbling down the small hill.
My phone started to ring and I saw that it was my brother Sean.
"Hey Sean!" Destiny looked up and looked curious. She laid down on her stomach, but the funny thing is, the wolf was mimicking her every move. She put her head in her hands, so did the wolf. I tried to stifle a laugh.
"Come quick, we hit the mother load!" Sean whispered and I smiled. Destiny looked confused. I put my hand over the phone.
"They're hunting. I guess they found a fox or something like that." I said and she nodded.
"What did you find Sean?" I said and he shuffled with the phone. Somehow I had a bad idea about this.
"Were not going to hurt them, but we found wolves and one is one hundred percent black and, there's this white, brown and black one and she is beautiful Dakota. You gotta come quick. It's a sight to see!" He whisper yelled and I smiled widely. The Autumn wolf had his head in my lap and I smiled and played with it's fur on it's head.
"Ok, Destiny and I will be there shortly. Where are you by the way? The deer stand?" I asked him.
"Yup. But it looks like there is a pack of them. But I don't see their Alpha, Beta or third in command anywhere. It's truly rare if you find them you know." Sean said and it got me thinking. The wolf in my lap froze. And so did the other two wolves. I looked at each of their sizes once again.
The gray wolf was a bit over average size.
The black and white wolf, was about six inches bigger than the Gray.
But the Autumn wolf was both of them combined.
I froze and looked down at the wolf in my lap. He looked up at me and nodded. I gasped and I forgot I had the phone up to my ear.
"Dakota, what's wrong?" Sean asked in a worried voice and the Autumn wolf growled a bit.
I looked down at him and rolled my eyes while I played with his ears and fur. He seemed to have purred and I giggled.
"Sean. I think the Alpha's head is in my lap. He seems to like me too." I say and giggle when he gets up and starts to sniff my neck.
"What about the Beta and third in command?" He asked, slightly intrigued. I smiled and looked and Destiny and the gray wolf. They were cuddling-I think. They were lying together and looking at the sky. But she was petting him and scratching his head. He closed his eyes in pleasure and he licked her face a bit. She giggled and it looked like he was smiling.
"Yup. I think the third in command likes Destiny too." Just as I said that, the Beta came up to me. He looked at me curiously before stepping a bit closer.
I reached my hand out slowly, it looked like he didn't really like people.
I put my hand against his head and he leaned forward. I smiled and started scratching his head and he purred with pleasure. But the Alpha didnt want me touching him.
The Alpha got up, and the tingles left. He stood up tall and growled at his Beta. The Beta cowered and lowered his head from my hand. I frowned and looked at the Alpha. He looked happy that I wasn't touching him. I took the opportunity and flicked his nose. He whimpered a little bit but looked at me.
He was confused and looked hurt.
"Hey. If I pet him you will not get upset." I pointed towards his Beta and he growled-somewhat possessivly. I forgot Sean was on the phone and he kept calling my name.
The Alpha looked down at my phone and nudged it. I looked down and heard Sean calling my name.
"Dakota? You there?" He asked worriedly and I started to pet the Alpha since he was getting upset. He purred and laid his head in my lap.
"Yeah I'm still here. Sorry I was petting the Beta and the Alpha got upset that I stopped petting him." I told Sean and we both laughed.
"Hurry up they're starting to leave and there's a bunch of deer. We need something for dinner don't we?" He asked and I scoffed.
"Ok Sean I'll be there in a bit. Love you bro." I said and the Alpha put his head on my stomach-he pushed me down and laid himself over me. I laughed at his behavior.
"Ok. Bye little sis."
I hung up and threw the phone to Destiny. She caught it and put it in her back pocket. Now all I had to do was get the Alpha off me.
"Ok boy, I have to get up now." I said and he whimpered and shook his head and laid on me-he literally laid on me and I gasped for air. He was so heavy!
"Can't... Breathe!" I got out and he got up right away and looked worried. I took in deep breaths of air before I got up. They all looked sad that we were leaving. Destiny walked over to me and smiled. We nodded once and looked toward the three.
"Wanna race? Last one to the deer stand has to get sprayed by a skunk." I said and they shook their heads and covered their noses. We laughed and I looked toward the Alpha. He liked me the most and I hoped he would let me ride him.
"Can I ride you to the deer stand? I dont stand a chance running by myself." After I said that he looked up and nodded. He stood up straight and I jumped on his back. I felt the tingles again and I knew my legs would fall asleep. But the tingles intensified when I got on him. My breath hitched and he looked at me weirdly.
I looked back at Destiny and she got on the Gray wolf's back. She gasped too and when she looked at me, we both shrugged and they all got into a line. I was gripping the Alpha's fur and he purred a bit. They all looked towards each other and nodded, like they were having a conversation.
"Ok. One," I said and they got in a stance. I leaned down on the Alpha and held on for dear life.
"Two," Destiny said and we looked at each other in a stare off.
"Three, Go!" Right when we said that the wolves took off and we held on for dear life. They must have known where they were going, cause five minutes later we were there, riding on the backs on wolves. Everyone stopped and starred at us.
The Alpha and I came in first, the Gray wolf and destiny came in second, since the Beta tripped back there, he came in third. We both laughed at him and he looked down in shame.
"Sean! Go find a skunk! We said the loser has to get sprayed!" We point towards the Beta, while he looks down in shame. The wolves join in on our laughter, they howled and rolled around on the ground.
Sean found a skunk and laughed.
"I'm just messing with you. I would have to be stupid to do that to the Beta." Sean said and put the skunk back in time before it sprayed him. He ran away from it but tripped on the way back.
I stayed on the Alpha's back and played with his fur. He purred and I smiled. I leaned forward and laid down on him. I hugged him and kissed his head. We stayed like that for a few more moments until his head snapped to a direction. There was a full grown male deer. I smiled and got off of the Alpha. He whimpered and I shushed him.
I ran to the deer stand and grabbed a bow and arrow. I aimed at the deer's head and whispered.
"I'm sorry..." The wolves all looked at me and Sean rubbed my back, while I shot the deer in the head and killed it. I looked at Sean sadly and he hugged me. I was always connected with animals. Yea, we need them for food. But it hurts to know that you've killed something so elegant, graceful and beautiful.
So I was an animal lover. Sue me.
Once I calmed down a bit I got down from the deer stand and I saw the Alpha, he was looking worried.
I gave him a small smile and he came over to me. I sat down on the ground away from the deer stand and the Alpha came over and laid his head on my lap. I smiled and felt like he was trying to comfort me. He was rubbing his head on my stomach and my legs. I giggled at his behavior and when he looked into his eyes, I felt happy. He was trying to be playful and comforting at the same time.
I leaned down and kissed his nose. He smiled and rubbed his nose against my neck. I laughed a bit cause it tickled. But mostly I felt tingles and his whiskers were tickling my neck. I laughed and he rolled on top of me and started licking my face. I laughed once again cause I've never met an Alpha like him. He's playful and relaxed.
Then again I've never met and Alpha. I wonder if they're always like this.
I looked up to see my little sister running to the Beta. She laughed when he nudged his nose with her neck. She giggled and sat on the ground petting the Beta with tender touches, as if she thought he would brake any second. She scratched his head and he closed his eyes and purred from pleasure.
I looked back at the Alpha and he had a certain emotion in his eyes. I just couldn't tell what it was. I smiled down at him and started petting his back. He let out a breath and relaxed.
I frowned when I saw my dad carrying guns. He looked very intimidating and scary, but he was actually a softy like me, Sean, Destiny and Layla-my little sister. When he saw me and the Alpha, he wemt wide-eyed, dropped the guns, and walked over to us.
"Wow. I've never seen one before." He said and the Alpha lifted his head off of my lap and stood up straight. He was tall and he definately looked like an Alpha. He stood tall and he looked proud of his title. My dad stood up and went up to the Alpha.
