Chapter Five! Yep, part II is back!
"Everybody! Quiet!" I was trying to have a meeting. I gathered most of the pack away from the hunter camp ground. About a quarter of the pack was missing. In this situation, missing either meant you were dead, or you ran and didn't stop running.
Kate was by my side, looking for Humphrey, Lilly and their pups. She was relieved when they made their way out of the tree line. "Are you sure that's everybody, Garth? Maybe you should howl again?" Kate said.
I shook my head. "I took my chances with that low howl. I can't run the risk of a hunter hearing me. Whoever is here, is here."
"Alright, listen up! I'm sure all of you know by now. The pack leaders are dead." There were gasps and murmurs all around. I looked over at Humphrey and Lilly. Humphrey had his head buried into his mate's fur.
I cleared my throat and began again. "Me and Kate will now lead you all. Is everybody alright with that?" Without a seconds hesitation, heads began to nod in agreement. "Alright then. Now...The hunters are stationed to the west of here, about half a mile and the fire was started in the east. A large town of people is in the south and enemy packs are in the north."
A brown wolf spoke up out of the crowd, "What do we do? West means being shot, east means burning to death, south means being captured, and north means a pack fight if we step onto another packs territory!"
"It's okay," I said. "I have a plan. I will assemble all of the remaining Alphas. Me and that group of wolves will give everybody else enough time to make a run for the west. It is our only option."
A wave of surprise passed over the pack. Kate whispered to me, "Garth! That's suicide!"
"I know, Kate. And you're not coming. You're staying to take care of the pups. I must do what I must to protect you, our pups, and the rest of the pack." I looked at her with love in my eyes. Never had I loved anything more beautiful than Kate or my pups. I would do anything for them. Even die for them.
"Okay, Alphas, raise your paws. Who will go with me on this mission to protect your families?" About five or six wolves raised their paws. That was more than enough. "Good. Alphas...This may mean death in the end, for some of you. But do not be afraid. In the end, your families will be safe."
"Okay, here is what we'll all do. Alphas, we will charge in, and fight off the hunters for as long as we can. There isn't much hunters. I believe we can each get one to ourselves," I then turn to the rest of the pack and say, "When the hunter are distracted, run for it until you're all far away. That's all you have to do, understand?" Nobody did anything. Tears were swelling in eyes; females and children were crying.
Within an hour, the Omegas and children were ready. And the Alphas were ready to lay their lives on the line.
I was carrying Ryan in my mouth, while Humphrey had Delilah and Skyler in his mouth. Everybody was saying their last goodbyes, not sure which Alphas would make it out alive. Garth was saying goodbye to his pups and Kate. It was sad seeing that sight. Garth just had to make it out alive! If not, his pups would grow up without a father!
"Okay," Garth said to everybody. "Kate will lead to through the camp ground. The camp ground is small, but everybody stay together!"
This was it. The Alphas made their move. I couldn't see what was going on, but I heard wolf growls. When Kate said, "Let's go!" everybody started running with their heads down. I was only paying attention to what was in front of me. I dodged a few tents and a fire, but after about ten minutes, Kate stopped.
When I looked around, all I saw was trees. We had successfully made it through the camp grounds! Everybody was making sure nobody was lost or had fallen behind.
Kate then spoke up to the crowd, "Alright, listen up. This isn't where we stop. All we're doing is waiting for the Alphas. When they get back, get ready to run again."
I turned towards Humphrey and dropped Ryan. "Do you want me to hold two of them?" He shook his head. As he did, Delilah and Skyler banged against each other, giving a whine of pain.
"Oops! Sorry guys!" his muffled voice said.
Just then, an Alpha made it through two trees behind us all. Then another. Then another. Finally, another Alpha appeared.
"...Is that all that's left?" Kate asked them with a tone of saddness.
"Yes, Kate." said one of the Alphas. "Garth didn't make it."
Look, I don't enjoy killing Garth...But it had to be done! Sorry!
I also don't enjoy people viewing my stories and not leaving a review! I mean, really, how hard is it to say "Great chapter!", "Horrible chapter!" or something like that?
