4 Hours past Dawn

"Rhydian, you're obviously tired." Jana slumped next to him by Maddy's bed and rested a hand on his shoulder. "You're obviously hungry as well. To top it all off, I bet you'll go into denial."

"No I won't." Rhydian protested as his stomach let out a growl.

"Rhydian, all I'm asking is that you get some breakfast, get your teeth cleaned and then have a nap. Tom and Shannon told us everything. It sounds like last night was brutal on them. I bet you feel like you've gone twelve rounds with a boxer." Rhydian didn't want to admit how right Jana was.

"Okay, I'll get some breakfast and have a sleep." Rhydian gave in, too tired to fight.

"That's all I ask." Jana grinned. "They took that man away. The one you told me about when you came to the wild... He won't be a problem now."

"I just wish it didn't have to get to that point." Rhydian replied.

"Well, at least it wasn't them who put an end to him." Jana shrugged as she glanced at Maddy's still form. "I don't think they'd have lived with themselves."

"But you still don't remember anything?" Rhydian looked over at her.

"It's a blank page." Jana glared at the floor in shame. "I just really hope I didn't hurt anyone that didn't deserve it. Even Shannon doesn't know who got Kyle in the end. If it were me, I'd be okay with that. But I wouldn't want to think I hurt anyone else." Rhydian was about to reply when Shannon walked in.

"Guys, I've just had a text from Harry." She tossed the phone to Rhydian. "Bernie's retired to Spain and Katrina's mother is looking to take over the cafe. Harry wants to put on a bit of a performance there when they reopen. Are you guys going to be there?"

"I probably won't." Jana said. "As soon as I know Maddy's okay and everything else is back in balance, I'm heading back to the wild. The pack needs me as much as they don't want to admit it."

"I'll be there and Maddy probably will too." Rhydian nodded. "We will provided the opening doesn't fall on a dark moon anyway. Mind you: I'd rather go through two dark moons back-to-back than go through that again."

"Yeah, and you still need some food." Jana grabbed Shannon's phone and tossed it back to her. "Shan, can you take him and make sure he gets some food in him? I'll look after Maddy. It's no problem."

"Come on, Rhydian." Shannon motioned for him to follow. His reluctance was clear, but he got up and followed Shannon. As soon as they were downstairs and she could hear bacon frying, Jana picked herself up onto her knees and faced Maddy's bed.

"Freirgard, presence of the moon; let this Wolfblood be safe. Let her find sanctuary, and let the dream that is her captor bring safely back into the arms of loved ones." With that, Jana sat down with her back against Maddy's bed as she was before. Her own tiredness caught up with her as she allowed the sweet darkness to take her.

Blood Moon


Author's Note: This is the end of Blood Moon. Thanks so much for all the support. Anyway, I promised a special announcement in my last upload and here it is. For those who haven't guessed already by the ending, there will be a sequel coming soon. It's called Blood Red Sky and just like this one I will put the prologue up soon as a teaser. The rest will be going up once I write a bit more of it. Also, Wolfblood Season 5 Episode 10 just aired in the UK. It was also the season finale because this season only has ten episodes for some god-unknown reason. I swear these TV people are getting lazier. Anyway, I will also be writing an alternate ending oneshot for the season finale with my take on what would have happened if the bad guys had succeeded. I don't have a title for it yet because I've only just decided I'm writing it. Anyway, please remember to review. It's your support that keeps me inspired to write more. That's why I also want to take this moment to thank you all for the support you've all shown me; not just on this story but on everything I write. You've all been brilliant since I first started writing stories. Thanks to all of you.
