Okay let me start off by saying I CANT BELIEVE JENNIFER BARNES will not write book 4 for the Raised by Wolves series. Damn it! Although she did state that in the far future she "might." UGH! Oh well lucky for me I have an imagination. This is my interpretation of what book 4 should be.

**Spoiler if you haven't finished book 3 do not read any further**

Lucky for me she killed off Chase (although I literally cried when he was killed – he was an adorable creature) because I really didn't feel Bryn was meant to be Chase's mate. Throughout the entire series, I felt another wolf was waiting for her to come of age. Some of you might not like my choice but I felt this connection throughout the entire series. I hope I don't disappoint and I hope more people write stories of the RbW series I want other versions to read not just mine. GRRRRR….. As for my "book" – book 4 will take place right where book 3 left off. I did not want time to elapse. I was actually upset that Ms. Barnes finished it as she did GRRR :c | This will be in Bryn's POV unless otherwise written.

Okay here goes…


Disclaimer: I don't own any of the Raised by Wolves series characters. BUT THIS STORY AND PLOT 'PACKS OF WOLVES' IS MINE! GRRRRRRRR…

Callum was a blur after he leapt toward me. In milliseconds, Callum's teeth gripped around my right shoulder and he violently shook me left and right. Snap, Snap, SNAP. My shoulder/collarbone snapped in two, three, or even four pieces. Callum yanked me down like a rag doll still clutching my shoulder. I hit the ground flat on my back with a loud thud and the pain of my broken upper body sent shockwaves to every other limb and body part warning them of the coming onslaught. I began panting but I didn't scream-I didn't even make a sound. Whether it was my severely injured shoulder or the fact that Callum was biting and tearing every inch of my body below the neck in mere seconds, I remained motionless. I wasn't fearful or terrified. I shut down – I shut out everything - my fears, my pack, and my emotions. Even with the intense pain of my skin being peeled and ripped from my body, I remained quiet and still. My screams are futile because I wanted this. I was, however, screaming on the inside.

With every bite, Callum took chunks of my skin, and every bite felt like hot jagged knifes slashing at my body. My eyes traced Callum's every move and the scent of blood—a lot of blood–tainted our surroundings.

Rip, snap, snap, riiiiip.

My body involuntarily jerked up in pain.

Pain…pain…pa…

Although, the worst pain of all came from my chest—at the empty area where my heart should be. Emptiness was all I felt now, the pain of nothingness, the pain of loneliness – and these are the feelings I will have for the rest of my life (if I survive). My empty heart is chipping away to nothing - everyone I've ever loved have been torn away from me; my parents, my first love Chase, my Callum whom I want nothing to do with ever again, Jed, and now my humanity. Am I the Grim Reaper? Am I the wolf of death? Everyone around me seems to die. I am the Wolf Reaper. I deserved this pain. I deserved this excruciating hurt. This is what Chase went through when Shay ordered the attack. THIS IS WHAT I DESERVE.

Chase, Chase, Chas…PAIN! I inwardly scream.

One second Callum was gnawing at my left thigh and then Callum's teeth clutched at my throat. My air supply immediately stopped. I began to gasp. I locked eyes with Callum and a look I've never seen from him before bore into me. That moment was short lived however, as he tightened his grip and began to grind his teeth left and right. I started to feel lightheaded and began to black out. The moment one single silent tear escaped my left eye, he released my throat.

I began to chock - struggling to breathe.

Burning – hot burning pain started on my right shoulder. In seconds, this pain was magnified times 10 – this pain had me grunting. As if on cue, Callum lunged directly toward that right shoulder again, but this time I let out a bloodcurdling scream, although it sounded more like an injured screaming seal rather than a human scream. Callum must have injured or severed my vocal cords. As Callum continued to chew on various parts of my body, my seal-like screams went unnoticed, a stinging fire pain started between my breasts and spread like wild all over. My seal screams turned toward a gurgling choking sound, I was drowning in my own blood. Callum's chewing and gnawing intensified. I closed my eyes not wanting to see the blood that caked his muzzle. PAIN, the pain was agonizing. I was dying. My human body was dying. My sight was starting to fail, blurry, everything was blurry.

Focus, focus Bryn. My eye flew open as Callum's deep growl startled me. My eyes focused on Callum and his attention was on something in the woods. His body went rigid over mine and a loud cracks sounded somewhere near us blasted.

I immediately smelled gun smoke, someone is shooting at us.

Callum's body then flew to the left and he immediately went out of my sight. The moment Callum left my side, my body jerked uncontrollably as if I was having a seizure or suffering from severe hyperthermia. The hot pain never subsided and I was dead wrong to think that if Callum stopped chewing on me that the stabbing pain would leave, but in fact it became horribly worse. Was I on fire? Did someone light me on fire?

My eyesight focused and unfocused, I was blacking out.

...

...

Her voice awoke my fainting stupor. Bryn, damn you, what the hell were you thinking.

Ali was crying uncontrollably.

Ali what the…

Shhhhh…just relax Bryn…

At every other word even Ali's mind was crying. Gunpowder, Ali smelled like gun powder. Did Ali shoot Callum? Double Crap.

With all the excitement, I began to horribly gag again. I sounded like I was gurgling water.

….just relax sweetie. Oh my God, I am going to kill him. Look what he's done to you…I am going to kill him.

Ali, I asked him to do this. I let out a grunt and Ali hysterically called everyone through the pack bond – she called everyone I had closed out.

The whole pack even the babies were horrified. They wanted blood for this – blood for blood. Even the peripherals. My older pack members and Lily wanted to be near me, to protect and avenge.

Fire, pain – burning.

NO! Ali, I wanted this. All of you stay where you are. My first official order to my entire pack came out rushed and exasperated. It was hard to concentrate – the fire felt like it was shooting out my fingers. My connection to them was still open and my pack became restless –even the babies that I had originally blocked out but the older pack members did not.

Fire – fire everywhere around me.

Darkness…

Bryn…

Darkness…

Please…Bryn

My eyes flashed open as the burning fire has now lit in my throat and going toward my face. I gasp for breath and a horrified gurgling sound accompanies my every breath.

I look toward Ali. Ali's horrified expression spoke volumes. I was in bad shape. Every now and then Ali came in and out of my vision – it seemed like she was attempting to stop the bleeding.

Don't close your eyes Bryn. Stay with me. Her tears and sobs grew louder and louder elevating into frantic shrieks.

No Ali, stop I wanted this.

She just shook her head over and over again. How could you do this to me Bryn. If you don't die after this I am going to kill you.

Darkness…

...

...

Wake UP! What do I do Bryn? What? Please…don't leave me.

In that instant I saw myself…I saw myself through her eyes. I looked like I had hamburger meat for skin – my face was untouched.

Then, I began to choke – no breath entered or exited my mouth. A gurgling sound came from my neck area. I was chocking on my blood. Ali tried to place pressure on my neck wound but it only made it worse like she was chocking me to death.

Stop Ali. Please…

My last breath left me and my lungs burned to have air in them. I began to cough – coughing up liquid – my blood. I will suffercate to death. I'm dying. With that I let go – I let go and succumb to the fire – to the burning.

I love you Ali. Pack, I love you too, do not seek revenge I asked for this. I…

Nothingness…everything went black.
