A Past Life Revealed
In my moment of excitment, I felt terror. We had won capture the
flag and yet, in my moment of victory, my hair stood up on my arms and a
small voice in my head told me to turn around. With a cold, tingling
sensation down my spine, I turned and stared into the deep, red eyes of
He was about 7 feet tall with glittering, snow white fur all over. He
stood on his hind legs, up right, like a human. But he wasnt human. The
werewolf, lips curled back over his large canines, into a snarl. His long tail
swished back and forth in a rhymatic motion, almost hypontizing. There
was a sense of beauty in the terror before me. I was speechless in his
presence. His face was inches from mine. I could see bits and pieces of flesh
and bone from recent meals. His rancid breath stung my eyes. Emotions
played across his red, intelligent eyes. Fear, hatred, love, recongition,
amusement, but most of all amazement. He stared at me amazed. He let
out a deafening roar. A warning, a command. He was alpha, he was
superior. I was a ant to him. Saliva flew on my face and I had to close my
eyes from the force. When he finally stopped, I opened my eyes to see a
wolfish grin spread across his wide muzzle. The he finally spoke.
"My queen, it has been centuries since we have last spoken, but you are
looking as beautiful as ever. Isnt that right, Harmony?"
I was confused and yet everything he said, I knew what he was talking
about. His voice was dripped with honey, so warm, so fluent. Before I knew it, a voice was telling me what to do and say. The voice sounded like my own but yet it sounded older, wiser. I curtised to the wolf, bowing my head low in respect. The words flew from my lips as if ive been waiting my whole to say them.
"My lord, what an honor it is to bask in your presence once more."
Everyone stared at the two of us, in fear, in determation, in shock. Only
Ezzie, my darling, stupid sister, stepped foward beside me and curtised as
well. The wolf gazed at her in... disgust? longing? But quickly recovered and spoke in his honey sweet voice.
"Melody, its been to long."
"Why yes it has my lord." she said.
So I wasnt the only one experiencing this. I felt a sorta relief. Staring into
the eyes of death, I felt peaceful, relaxed as if this was the most normal
thing in the world. He placed a gnarled paw on each of our foreheads and
we werent there no more, yet we were still standing in the middle of the
We were in a throne room with beautiful taperstries hanging on the walls.
Two silver thrones sat at the far end. In the middle of the room stood a
young man in his early twenties with curly blond hair and sparkling blue
eyes, athletic build and deep tan, as if he spent all his time outdoors. There
was a shimmering silver light in front of him and was he... begging? As I
examined closer, the light turned out to be a woman of maginfence. She
radiated youth, beauty, and power. It was Diana, I reconginzed. At her feet
laid the most wonderful beast to walk the planet. Snow white fur with
golden claws, the wolf was something you only saw in paintings. A ring of
red was dabbled on its neck like a scarlet ruby necklace. As I watched, Diana
lifted the wolf with magic and the wolf and the young man began to merge
until all that was left on the floor was teh humoniod werewolf of reality.
The vision shiftd to another scene. In the middle of a bedroom stood a
gorgeous woman with skin the color of milk and hair like a golden sun. Her
eyes were mysterious, like she had a wonderful yet terrible secert and
glittered like sapphires. I realized, she looked just like me. Cradled in her
arms was a baby, maybe a month. The child looked almost exactly like its
mother expect for its eyes, which were ruby red and glistened with blood
lust. The young man, the humoniod werewolf, walked in, with a grimace on
his face, like the woman and child were the most repulsive things on the
earth. But the woman smiled kindly at him, but held the child close, like the
father would hurt her. The father spoke.
"Shes part of the prophecy, Harmony, so is your sisters children."
He looked at the child with soo much loathing and hatred it rolled off him. Harmony backed away, apparently feeling it also.
"Well, we can work it out," she said gently, quietly. In a swift motion the
man charged her. She dodged quickly and took off down the long corridor
with the crying child, the young man in pursuit.
"SHE WILL DESTORY ME!" he screamed, breaking vases and tearing
taperstries in his wake. Another young woman, with raven black hair and
eyes the glittered like emeralds, ran out with two children, twins, and ran
with Harmony. She looked like Ezzie, but thats impossible. It was possible,
the proof was in front of me. They ran out the castle, through the gardens,
to the temple of Diana.
Harmony spoke, "Diana will protect them!" she placed her crying child on
the offering table, as did Melody, as they kneeled and prayed. The young
man stormed in, in a rage, and slit there throats with his long claws. But
when he tried to reach the children, he retracted in pain. Diana appeared
before the young man, takin in the scene with a vengence in her eyes.
"You dare slay women in my temple, to even consider slaying children
also!" she radiated a power unlike any other.
"You will wonder the earth, you worthless beast, for all eternity! Your
descents, twins, one of light and one of darkness, just like the women u
slew, will come forth and smite you where you stand. You will not touch
these children under my protection."
And with that, she picked up the children and disappeared as the young
man roared in outrage.
The vision ended, and I stumbled in surprise, taking back in my surrondings.
The wolf was watching us, taking in out reactions. What did we just
witness? A past life of us. As the thought entered my head, I knew it was
true. I was Harmony, Ezzie was Melody. The wolf knew us. We were his
descents, his destoryers and he wanted to finish us off. From the look on
Ezzie's face, she had figured it out also. Thats the thing with twins, they
know what the other is thinking. We both knew we werent capable of
beating him. We would be dead before camp could do anything. Ezzie
grabbed my hand like a life line and braced for the final moment. The wolf
"I am Prince Lazeraus. Youve never heard of me before but ive heard of you. Marlene Isabella Call and Esmeralda Lewellen Call." He grinned evily and it sent chills through me.
Ezzie spoke up first. "How do you know of us, my lord?" Her confidence was waning.
"I know alot more then that. You two were born June 21, 1995 on the
summer solsitice. Your mother is Calypso, goddess of exile and abdoment.
You have a older sister named Sarah Black. You mother sent you down a
river, to a safe haven, but..." He looks at me, "Your safe haven wasnt safe at
all, was it?"
Memories flashed through my mind, sharp and intense, the wind being
knocked out of me. I saw a fire, I heard heartbreaking screams, I felt soft,
wet grass carsassing my feet and smoke fling my nostrils and lungs. I
clutched at my heart instivinctly. A more distant memory was trying to
surface also. A soft, sweet voice. Warm, gentle hugs. Soft kisses. So
familiar, yet so far away from my grasp. Lazrus grinned triumphtly.
"Im here to make you a deal. As you know, Harmony was my wife and
Melody was my mistress. I had heard of a prophecy saying someone of my
blood would destory me. I assumed it would be one of my children. So i
tried to get rid of them. I failed miserably. So ive spent almost an millenium
thinking and realized violence isnt the answer. Why destory my descents
when I could make peace with them. When I heard of the birth of light and
dark, I investigated. You two were the exact replicas of my beloved
Harmony and Melody. So here is my deal: Run away with me, let out your
inner animal and join my pack. Harmony will become my wife again. No
blood will be shed."
I stared in shock. He wanted us to join his pack. Wanted me to marry him. I
didnt need to think, the words were out before I could process anything. "In
your dreams, the day I join your pack and marry you is the day the earth
stops spinning I eat my fingers." Admitidly, not the best combat, but all in
all, it got my point across. Ezzie nodded in agreement.
Lazerus looked outraged. He raised a paw to strike us, when a silver arrow
appeared in the paw. He roared in outrage as Sarah came up, stringing
another arrow. "Leave this camp." I completely loved my big sister at that
moment. She looked superior and powerful with her golden, curly hair and
intense, brown eyes.
"Then let the prophecy begin, I will be back, no one will survive. By the
harvest moon on all hallows eve, I will regin supremem." and with that, he
loped away into the night. Silence followed. Nicole, our camp director,
spoke. "EVERYONE TO THERE CABINS, ALL CABIN COUNSLERS TO THE
DINING HALL FOR A WAR MEETHING." She looked at the three of us with
emotionless, black eyes.
"You three will join us also." She headed away as all the campers filed to
there cabins. With final glances at my sisters, We headed to the Dining hall.
