Description

"Fear? Just another word for motivation baby."





The Basics

ImageFull Name:
"Pronounce it right." Adalind Shayla Rose Parks. [ Add-uh-lyn-d ] Yes, it's a long name, and she prefers to keep the middle name "Shayla" to herself, because that was her mother's name.

Nickname:
"I have a name for a reason. Use it." Adalind typically hates nicknames, however, she will answer to Addie or Ada, but those are the only two she'll accept. If you want to piss her off, the fastest way to do so is to call her "babe", "honey", or "baby". To her, those are names a guy gives you when he doesn't feel the need to bother remembering your name. If you're going to give her a nickname, it might as well be meaningful, and unique to her, that way she knows you want her in your life. Never call her by a nickname you could give to just anyone. However, despite this rule of hers, she uses these names for other people often. Why? Because she never expects them to stay in her life. | Due to her uncanny ability to blend with shadows in her wolf form, she's been nicknamed Shadow or Shade.

Age:
"Too young to have any fun. Legally anyway." Seventeen years-old, though looks a little older, allowing her to get away with a lot.

Gender:
"All female baby. Need proof?" Female

Role:
"I may have been adopted into this position, but that doesn't mean I don't deserve it." Beta | Candice Swanepoel




Try not to be Jealous

Hair color:
Adalind's hair is bright golden blonde. People say she needs to lay off the dye, but this is actually her natural hair. In the summer, it's bright platinum due to the sun bleaching it, while in the winter, spring, and fall, it has darker blonde, caramel brown, and gold low lights streaking through the under layers. It's soft, and extremely long. Sometimes she straightens it, a process that takes hours, but sometimes she leaves it in natural waves. Very rarely will she curl it, but when she does, long blonde ringlets spiral down to her hips. She's very fond of the length of her hair and would never cut it. Naturally, it's just past her hips. Her bangs sweep gently across her forehead to the right, framing her face.

Eye color:
Icy, vibrant blue. They're extremely pale on the inside, with dark cobalt rings around the outside, and veins of the same color running throughout, looking like shattered ice. They're rather large on her face, and paired with her fair skin and bright hair, make her look doll like, and innocent, something she definitely does not deserve, but uses to her advantage often. People tend to underestimate her, because her large eyes make people think she's helpless and kind, especially when that's what she wants them to think, because she's an expert at putting any emotion she wants into her gaze. Their unusual color is quite captivating, as there is a lot of contrast between the dark cobalt blue, and the much much paler, icy, almost-white, blue. In her wolf form, these eyes stay the same, standing out in huge contrast to her dark fur.

Skin tone | Coat color:
Creamy peach, with pink tinted cheeks. | Deep, pure black, allowing her blend with shadows. However, her tail's tip is dipped in white, as are her right ear, and the toes of her front paws.

Build:
Small and petite, though her muscles are toned, and she is extremely quick. She has small, delicate features, appearing breakable and fragile. However, she has the appropriate curves for a girl her age. Despite this, she is quite tall, being model height, standing at 5'8" | In her wolf form, she's still extremely petite, but with long legs for running. Despite her smallness, do not underestimate her, she's extremely quick.

Tattooes/Piercings/Scars:
"Yes, the 'perfect little princess' has tats and piercings. Get over it." Ada has two tattoos, and several piercings. Her first tattoo is simple, yet powerful to her. It sit's along the waistline of her jeans, on her lower abdomen, reading: "I am the hero of this story, I don't need to be saved." Her second tattoo is small, and it's a tiny printed date that sits between her shoulder blades, with two small paw prints on either side. This is the date of her mothers death. As for piercings, she has both ears pierced once, her belly button pierced, and her left ear pierced three times in the cartilage. Finally, when it comes to scars, she has one, along her left collar bone, that she got in a fight as a wolf, that had nearly killed her.

Overall appearance:
"Careful now, looks can be deceiving." Ada has a cute, put-together look about her, despite what her personality is. She practically radiates confidence and it shows in the way she walks and talks to people. She doesn't care what others think of her and she reflects that in her outward appearance, wanting everyone to see her for who she is. If they don't like it, it's their problem. Ada has long bright blonde hair that hangs down to her hips. It's soft and sways when she walks in gentle waves, making look like she sleeps in large rollers every night. It's both highlighted and lowlighted, with many different tones of caramel, gold, white-blonde, and even auburn. Her platinum hair frames a smooth, pale face with a sharp, defined jaw and high cheekbones. Her skin, paired with her hair make her look very pale, but not unhealthy. Under thick eyelashes, Addie has shocking eyes and together with her small frame, light wavy hair, and pale skin, these eyes make her look like a porcelain doll. A look that gives her an innocence she most definitely does not have. She uses it to her advantage often, to get out of trouble.

As for body type, Adalind has all the appropriate curves for a girl her age. She's not remarkably curvy, but she's not a flat board either. She has small bones and a slim figure. Much like a doll, she looks small and fragile with a delicate form. Much unlike a doll though, Adalind is strong for her size, able to move with exceptional speed and balance. She knows her weaknesses and strengths and when fighting, is quick to utilize them, making her shockingly tough.

When it comes to style, Ada is very put together, even though it clashes with her personality completely. On the outside, she appears pretty, and perfect, while on the inside, she's a tornado, waiting to be unleashed. When around her family, she dresses practical, and classy. When in school, or out in public, she bends the dress codes as far as possible for a hot, but classy look. She's the trend setter. The one the other girls follow and envy. When around her friends or just running errands though, she's more laid back with her style. And finally, when going out for a night on the town, causing trouble, her clothing can easily be described as revealing, and borderline slutty.

In her wolf form, her coloring is quite the opposite of her human form. While her human form is icy, pale perfection, her wolf form is deep and dark. Her fur is the deepest shade of black, and quite short, giving her a sleek, smooth appearance. However, she is not completely black. Her right ear, tip of her tail, and toes of her front paws are all a bright, snowy white. In her wold form, much like her human form, she is small and lithe. She walks with grace, and her small body allows her to move quickly. She has thin, long legs, and small paws. Her legs, being so long, are extremely muscular, allowing her to leap much farther and higher than the average wolf. Her eyes remain the same in her wolf form, standing out against her dark fur, creating an even more shocking affect than in her human form.





Not just another pretty face

ImagePersonality:
Independent [in-di-pen-duhnt]
Adjective

1. Not influenced or controlled by others in matters of opinion, conduct, etc.
2. Thinking or acting for oneself
3. Not subject to another's authority or jurisdiction
4. Not influenced by the thought or action of others
5. Not relying on another or others for aid or support.
6. Not depending on something/someone

"Trust me. I'm not someone you want to be messing with, sweetheart." Adalind, is, just as she says, not someone you want to mess with. She is tough as nails, despite the "perfect little princess" act, she plays. She is very manipulative and tricky, and, even if you don't think she's a threat, you should be afraid of her, because she'll hold a grudge. She may not get you right away, but she'll get you eventually. She's big on revenge. Sometimes, her revenge is public, and embarrassing, allowing everyone to see, sometimes it's much deeper than that, more sneaky, hidden, and behind the scenes, but she always gets her way. She's the type of girl who'll ruin you with a single sentence, who will keep you around long enough only to get what she wants from you before kicking you to the curb. Yet everyone wants to be close to her, because no one wants to be on her bad side, and everyone wants to remain on her good side.

Ada has not had it easy, and that takes a toll on her personality, making her tough. It's nearly impossible to break her, and once you have, almost impossible to get her to show any signs of it. Some say she's fearless, but really, she's just good at hiding her fear. She's a master of deception. Her whole life has been nothing but a lie. In public, she's always been the popular girl. The one everyone wants to be. She had all the boyfriends, the beauty, the friends, the hair. She was perfect. Her life was perfect. Everything about her was perfect. So she was happy, right?

No. This is just the outside of Ada. The first layer of the onion, it is a part of her, but not the whole her. She's the popular, bitchy girl, sure, but there's much much more underneath. However, she finds it easier just to give people what they want. To be what they want her to be. In a position of authority, everyone wants you to be something, so she gives it to them. She plays along. She gives people what they want. It's easier than being who she really is, and being rejected, or dealing with all the shit she'd get.

Really, Ada just likes to rebel and be free. She wants to do what she wants to do, when she wants to do it. No questions asked. Her tough shell protects her from being hurt, and she nearly never let's anyone through. It takes a lot for her to open up, and be herself with someone. A lot. She's sarcastic, and blunt, but not stupid. She has a filter and knows how to hold her tongue, but also knows how to use it to inflict the most damage possible. Her tongue is a bitter weapon. She's an expert at hurting, manipulating, cheating, and enchanting people, with nothing but words.

Words, and her incredible empathy. She sees into people. See's what they want, what they fear, and knows how to give it them. She's a hard person to figure out, and as soon as you think you've done it, she changes. Adalind, despite all this toughness, does not often show this unless enraged, afraid, or hurt. Ninety percent of the time, she's playing the role of "happy little popular girl," giggling, rebelling, and having a good time. But as soon as you cross her, hurt her, or scare her, those walls slide right up, and she's locked down tighter than a safe. She's titanium strong, and good at hiding fear with sarcasm and whit.

Despite all this though, getting to know Adalind really is worth while. Don't let her intimidate you. For all her protection, she's just looking for someone to care about. Someone who's not afraid to push her, to push down her walls. Who'll refuse to go, no matter how many times she pushes them away. She's not looking for sweet, kind, gushy relationships. She's looking for someone who cares enough to yell at her. To push her to be herself. When she let's you in, though it may take a lot, she's fiercely loyal, and would lay her life on the line for you. She also has a soft spot for kids and animals, because they're innocent. When innocence is threatened, she's not afraid to step up and defend it.

Adalind is extremely self-preservant and independent. She puts her own self preservation before everything and everyone, not caring who she has to knock down in her way, the lies she has to come up with, or the hearts she has to break to get what she wants, or to keep herself safe. Some would say she's ruthless, or emotionless, but this is far from the truth. She is actually just has a hard time trusting. She tries her best to do right by people, but she has a hard time letting down her guard. She's locked up tighter than a vault, and, though it is possible to crack her code, most people don't even attempt it. She's had a rough life, but she makes the most of it. That's what she does. Makes the most out of terrible situations. Her solutions may not be the best in the long run, leading to more suppressed feelings than anything else, but she'll do anything for a quick fix.

Addie is a tornado, all wrapped up in a pretty package. A rose, pretty and delicate looking, but protected by thorns. You have to do a little work, taking off those thorns, but in the end, it's all worth while. In all, Ada is tough-as-nails, and someone you probably don't want to mess with, but if you push past her protective shell, you'll see that there's really someone worth while underneath.

Paired With:
"I don't do relationships." The beta, Emmett Owens

Weaknesses:
* Her size is clearly one. Though she makes up for it in speed, in both her wolf and human form, she's quite small, and if directly cornered, or thrown up against someone with exceptional strength, she may have a problem on her hands.
* Her trust issues. While it allows her to keep the wrong people out, it can also keep her from allowing the right people in
* A good bet/dare/challenge. She will never turn down any of the three, and this could lead to some serious problems
* Her fears. Though she's great at hiding them, should someone know just how to get to her, they could easily undo her.


History:
"What does this look like to you, a share circle? Fuck off." Adalind was actually not born into the Thorn pack, she was adopted into it. Her real mother was a high ranking fighter for the Highland pack, her grandfather was one of their retired betas. Her grandfather arranged a marriage for her mother, hoping to keep the family bloodline strong, as the Highland pack is so well known for it's strength, but Ada's mother didn't want to marry the man her father had picked. Instead, she fell in love with a solitary wolf, and convinced him to claim her as his mate before her fathers choice could get a chance to. So the two were bonded, and Ada's grandfather was furious.

Fearing what the pack might do to her, Shayla, Ada's mother, ran away with John,the lone wolf, and they hid for three years before they figured they were safe. It was then that Shayla discovered she was pregnant. The two were overjoyed, and the joy of their child pushed their fears of the Highlands aside. A huge mistake, for they were no longer careful, and, before Adalind was even born, the Highland's found them and killed Shay's mate, leaving her alive, pregnant, and alone.

She never quite recovered after that, spiraling into a deep depression. For a while, she even considered giving the baby up, but never did. Adalind was Shayla's last happiness in the world, and she struggled to raise her right, despite how poor they were, and despite her fight against depression. Some days, Ada couldn't even get her mother to look her in the eye, others, they laughed, and talked like there was nothing wrong. It was hard, and caused Addie to have a lot of mixed feelings for her mother. She hated her for never being there for her, but she loved her for trying, and deep down, knew it really wasn't her fault. Adalind was forced to pretend like nothing was wrong, and as she got older, it got harder and harder, but somehow she managed to put on the perfect show of happiness, popularity, perfection, ect. for everyone around her, while at home, her life was miserable.

When she was fourteen, her mother fell ill with the plauge that seemed to be targeting the werewolves, and for a year, Ada watched as her mother made miraculous recoveries, only to be hit twice as hard once more, over and over again, until the woman had no more strength to keep fighting. She no longer wanted to try, and eventually, she died, leaving Adalind alone at fifteen, and immune to the disease.

Three months later, the beta for the Thorn pack found her living on the streets and took her into his home, adopting her as his daughter. She became the next in line for beta, in less than a year, with her sheer determination and Highland blood. When the Highland's called for her pack, and their enemies to combine, Addie was extremely pissed, but went along with it. Though she may not be happy about it, she'll do anything to defeat the deadly virus that took her mother.


Other:
Nope, I think that covers it.

Adalind woke with a soft, distressed moan. She'd been dreaming again. She'd always dreamed the same thing, ever since her mother had gotten sick, but now it was changing. It had become more frighting, and more confusing. There were few things in the world that Adalind Parks was afraid of, but her nightmares always made her wake with her heart racing, sometimes she even cried. Most of the time, Adalind would put off sleep for as long as possible, or just stay up all night. She was an expert at not needing sleep, and, at one point, she'd gone four days on just coffee and short naps. Lately, since she was being forced to share a bed with someone, she tended to stay up late, making sure she was always in bed after him. No way would she let him hear her cry in her sleep. Or feel her fear. That was one of the worst things about this whole arrangement. Now that he was her mate, he could feel her fear, making it impossible to hide.

Ada groaned, and squinted against the bright light shining through the window as she stretched her arms high above her head and shook the dream away. Emmett wasn't awake yet, but if she let it freak her out, her fear would wake him. Slowly, the room around her came into focus and she sighed as she calmed her thudding heart. She glanced at Emmett, sleeping beside her. Sharing a bed was not something she enjoyed. Well... Not in this case. Sometimes, she pretended to accidentally fall asleep on the couch in the living room, but she knew that had to stop. If they weren't cooperating when the Highland's showed up... Ada didn't want to think about it. Their strict rules had affected her first hand, and it hadn't been a good thing. When her mother had died, they'd asked her to come join them. It was where she belonged afterall, with her blood. However, she'd refused so they'd let her adoptive father have her.

With a soft sigh, she nudged Emmett before getting up, stretching her arms up above her head, and standing on her tip-toes to pull the last bit of grogginess out of her body. To bed, she'd worn an old boyfriend's t-shirt. It had been a gift for a one-month anniversary, and said both their names on the back in a heart. He no longer meant anything to her, but the shirt was soft, and over-sized, so she'd turned it into a sleep-shirt.

Addie walked to the dresser and pulled out a pair of soft shorts, slipping them on, not quite ready to get fully dressed yet. She glanced in the mirror, at Emmett on the bed. I should have chosen the Highlands. She thought bitterly, slamming the dresser drawer shut a little too hard before turning away and heading over to the large, ceiling-to-floor window and pressing her fingertips to it, looking out at the trees of the forest. Lately she'd felt so trapped. Being beta was enough of an expectation, now she'd been forced to allow the beta from her pack's enemy pack, claim her as mate. It would be one thing if they could actually be civil to each other. Or if Adalind was a different person entirely. Relationships weren't her thing, and they weren't his either, so they fought often. Adalind would find every tiny excuse to bicker, purposely expressing how much she loathed their situation by starting small, meaningless arguments that turned into explosive fights.

But mostly she was confused. Some days, it seemed like she was happy to have him around, and it almost hurt for him to be too far away. Others, she couldn't even stand to look at him. She'd heard that all mates fall in love eventually once the male claims the female, but what if that was wrong? What if she was forced to live the rest of her life now with a man she could only hardly tolerate? What if the Highland's didn't approve of where their relationship was when they came to visit?

Suddenly, before she could swallow it down, a wave of fear washed over her. The Highland's had ruined her mother's life, and as such, most of hers. What would they do to her if they found she was following in her mothers footsteps of rebellion? She hated the Highland's, but she also feared them. Ada glanced at Emmett, remembering once again, to bite down her fear, before turning back to the window.

She tugged at the edge of her t-shirt. Her mother had had an arranged marriage like this, but she'd been smart enough to get out of it. Sometimes, Adalind hated her mother for running away like she did. If she hadn't, she would have never had to suffer through depression, and would have been able to be there for her more. However, lately, it was becoming harder and harder to be mad at her. I know how you felt mom. She thought of herself as she twirled the locket around her neck, a habit of hers she didn't even notice.

A howl pulled her from her thoughts and Adalind stood straight, listening. She knew her pack well, and it sounded like the omega. Pain filled the howl, and Ada was suddenly on full alert, until she heard a door open and she relaxed again. Let the alpha's get it. Sure, she was beta, but, if it was serious, she had no doubt in her mind, that Kat or her new mate would come banging on her door at any moment.

When another howl sounded, this one from Kat, calling a gathering, Adalind hissed and rolled her eyes. If one of Emmett's pack had hurt her pack, she'd kill them. She didn't care what the Highland's said. Sure, they were all supposed to be mates now, but that didn't mean she trusted them yet. "Family meeting." She said to Emmett before walking from the room, closing the door roughly behind her.

In the living room, she ignored the others and walked right up to her alpha, Kat, placing a hand on her, looking her over briefly, with concern, for any marks. "What happened? You alright?"

Then she saw the omega, and let her hand drop from Kat, plopping down on the sofa, she ran her fingers through golden hair. "Alright. What the hell did that?" She asked, gesturing towards Lily.

Emmett Owens



Emmett was fairly exhausted, he hadn't been sleeping very well. Sharing a bed wasn't something he enjoyed, especially in a situation like this. He had actually even contemplated trying to make a trade with Kat, he'd rather spend a night with the boy he'd built forts with as a child than the girl he was being forced with. Normal people might have been the bigger person and opted to sleep on the floor or the couch but he wasn't about to do that. He was far too stubborn to give in. He wasn't about to go along with this stupid thing but he wasn't about to out right fight it and he certainly wasn't giving up his bed to do it. Especially not since Adalind seemed to keep 'accidentally' passing out elsewhere.

He managed to sleep through the nudge, and refused to wake up at the loud thud of the dresser drawer, it would only give her the satisfaction of getting to him. So instead he just lay there with his eyes closed, hoping to hold onto those last few minutes of sleep left inside him. He wasn't quite ready to deal with his new mate yet. They still couldn't get along to save their lives and if it had been up to him and had he not been forced, she wouldn't even be his mate. It was a big change for him, it meant no more nights out heading into town to get drunk and hang out with some young strangers. It meant he was forced to spend far too much time with someone he didn't even like. And worst of all, it meant actually starting to feel attached to someone even though he didn't want to be. It was both annoying and confusing, to feel weirdly attached to someone you couldn't stand to that point that it actually was uncomfortable for them to be too far or in any spot of danger.

Suddenly, in the back of his head, he felt a pang of fear. It was an odd sensation, not quite like experiencing fear himself but it still being there in his head in a way that identifiable yet not his own. He tried to push it from his mind and go back to sleep. This, however, was an unattainable goal because before he could even think about getting close to sleep a howl pulled him from it. He jolted up so fast, pure instinctively, that he nearly fell off the edge of the bed just as another howl sounded.

He groaned but didn't yet move. It could wait another few seconds. He heard Addie mumble something about a meeting and groaned softly into his pillow. He pulled himself from under the covers. He went over to the second dresser, the one containing his clothes and pulled out a t-shirt to tug over his bare torso, not bothering to change from his sweat pants. He ruffled his hand through his hair, both smoothing it slightly and messing it up at the same time. He sauntered out into the living room a few minutes later.

He was glad to see that it was only the girl omega, Lila or Lizzie or something like that. At least it wasn't any of his. "Russ, what happened." He asked looking to his friend, cousin and alpha not bothering to address the other alpha.
"What happened to her?" He asked gesturing nonchalantly to the omega bleeding on the floor, surely something his mother would freak out about, he decided.

RYAN STYPE

Ryan snuggled closer into his pillow the blankets wrapped around him and the body heat from his new mate next him making him feel nice and cozy. He was having a dream the same dream he had every night. He was back with his old family and pack his father smiling proudly at him he felt loved, like he would never be alone. Ryan hated the feeling of being alone, it made him want to just curl up into a ball and cry.
The feeling of his mates body heat disappeared from his side making him twitch slightly but nothing else. He danced around happily in his dream greeting every face he saw with a name and smile, suddenly he was in a clearing and he could see his mate Lily, but not in her human form. He saw Lily, her white fur dancing in the wind as she listened closely to the sounds around her. Out of nowhere something pounced on Lily digging its claws into her side and biting her neck, but it wasn't Lily anymore, it was Ryan. He could feel her pain and fear as the beast countined to bite her. He let out a urgent call to his pack the pain almost to much.
Ryan jolted up sweating, he rubbed his neck. The dream felt almost to real. He looked over to the empty side of the bed that once held Lily. He ran a hand through his hair shaking his head. He heard a howl. He stood up his sweat pants hanging baggy around him, but the gray tank top he wore fitting snuggley. He made his way to the living room unable to shake the dream from his head. As he stepped into the living room he saw a few people, but his eyes were only focused on the injured Lily.

Kat dragged the whimpering wolf into the living room, looking over her wounds. The wounds were unlike anything she had ever seen. This must have been a very strong beast, unlike a wolf or a human. She had no idea what this thing could have been.
When her beta came into the room, she greeted her with a short nod and gestured towards Lily with her snout. Wordlessly telling her to take care of the wounded wolf.

She turned away from her beta, looking towards Russell and Emmett.
'You and your beta come with me and check the territory to see if that thing is still around. It is not going to touch another of our wolves.' Sure, it was irritating that telepathy only worked with her mate, but at times it was convenient. Kat started out of the house, wanting to catch the thing before it hurt anyone else, but paused in the doorway as she spotted Ryan. Somewhat pitying him, she glanced at Addie as though silently telling her to allow Lily's mate to help patch her up.

With that, she dashed out of the house and back to the blood spattered area where the omega was attacked. It smelled thickly of blood, which somewhat covered up the scent of the beast. But she could still pick up its scent. The smell was very distinctive; sort of a mixture of human, wolf, and something completely foreign to her. She glanced back at the two males, waiting for them to pick up the scent before she beam tracking it.
It left no tracks, and she a very slight scent. The scent trail was flimsy at best. She followed it to the edge of the territory, where it just disappeared. Aggravated, she turned back to the other two to see if they had picked up anything that she haden't.

Lily Rae Thorn



Lily couldn't breathe as the beast released her before she had time to fight back, throwing her small for into the house like she was nothing. Almost as soon as it did, Kat came barreling towards her. Lily whimpered, trying to stand as her alpha dragged her back inside the house but was unable.
Kat dropped her in the living room, just as the pack gathered.

The wolf's soft white coat was streaked red, as she laid limply on the floor, trying to make sense of what had just occurred. There were long tears through her skin on both of her sides, and of corse the deep wound on her neck. She haden't gotten a good look at the beast- it had been too fast and caught her off guard. Lily stubbornly tried to stand again, as more pack members came into the room. The pain blocked out whatever they were saying.
She stood on very shaky legs until the pain cause her to collapse again.

She she caught Kat's glance at Adalind, silently asking her to take care of the omega, she watched the beta warily. She knew that the female wouldn't hurt a wolf from her pack, but at this point just the slightest brush against her wounds would cause her pain.
Lily glanced over her shoulder when Ryan entered the room. She haden't heard him so much as she sort of sensed him coming. It was a bizarre feeling- knowing when he was around like a magnet. Vaguely she realized being injured was probably causing him pain, too.

Resting her head against the cold floor, she glanced back up at Addie again with a look of more submission; as admitting that she did need her help.

Adalind kicked her legs up on the coffee table and watched the wordless communication happen. That was one thing about werewolves. They could have a whole conversation with just a few gestures. She smiled slightly, and then Kat looked at her, flicking a tail towards the Omega before turning to Emmett and Russell, no doubt speaking telepathically to Russell.

She sighed and crossed her arms over her chest, looking down at the injured omega. She wasn't used to healing and helping out. She was better in a fight, better at the side of her alpha, helping to fend off enemies. And Kat knew that. So why did she just gesture for her to stay and help clean up? The Addie saw Emmett following Russell and Kat out and understood. She'd chosen Russell's beta to go with, and probably didn't want a fight. If Ada had come along, her and Emmett would probably end up ripping each others heads off and getting nowhere.

Still, she growled slightly in annoyance, as they left the room. At least he's out of the house. She thought bitterly to herself. Maybe she could have some space to breath for once. Still, that annoying pang of abandonment swept through her as Emmett got further and further. Ryan came in the room, pulling Addie from her thoughts. She swallowed the irritating feeling and looked up at him from her spot on the couch. "Guess we should get her fixed up." She said with a shrug, rising, and heading for the closet where they kept all the supplies.

She got some water, a towel, and a first-aid kit and tossed Ryan the towel and handed him the water bottle. "Here. Clean the wounds and get some of that blood out of her fur." She knelt beside Lily and looked down at her. "Not gonna lie to you Lil, this is going to hurt like a bitch, but the less you move, the faster it's over."

With that, she got to work disinfecting and cleaning the wounds. Stitching up the really bad ones with a couple of stitches.

When they were done, Ada asked her to change back to her human form, and had Ryan lift her gently onto the couch. Adalind placed bandages over her worst wounds, and stitches, and got a blanket to lay over her.

When she finished, she stood back and admired her handiwork. "Damn, I should have been a doctor." She smirked, packing up and tossing Lily a bottle of pain pills before putting the supplies away and coming to plop down in one of the chairs. She rubbed her arm and sighed. "Now what?" She asked, looking at Ryan and Lily. She was annoyed that her alpha and Emmett were out there on the hunt of some clearly lethal beast, while Addie was in here, on daycare duty of the omega's. It was almost an insult.

She stood and groaned, going to the kitchen. "Anyone hungry?" She asked, rifling through the fridge and cabinets for something that was very low-maintenance, but didn't seem pathetic. She wasn't much of a cook. In fact, she'd just recently learned how to cook spaghetti-o's in the microwave, but she was determined to make herself useful somehow.

Ryan watched as the thorn Alpha, Russell and Emmett left the room. He ran a hand through his hair he couldn't grasp the feeling of feeling someone else's pain, wasent his own pain already enough? He was shaken out of his thoughts as the Thorn beta threw him a towel and gave him a water bottle, and told him to help clean the wounds.
He got to work deep in thought about the dream and what this ment for him and all the other mates. Could he handle it? He slowly picked Lily up her weight feeling like nothing to him and set her on the couch next to him.
"Anyone hungry?" The beta asked heading into the kitchen. He watched the beta intensely, trying to remember her name it had totally slipped his mind seeing as though he wasn't good with names.
"I'm sorry, I forgot your name and its kind of weird just calling you beta....well I guess it's better than calling you the name Emmett refers to you as." He said sarcastically, then laughing remembering the name Emmett had called her.
He got up heading to the kitchen his foot stepping into something sticky and watched as the beta pulled stuff out from the refrigerator looking at it confusingly. Never send a blonde to do something he thought laughing but held his tongue thinking it would be better if he didnt say anything.
"I got."he nodded taking a package of bacon from the beta's hands then bending down and wiping up the spilled juice with the other.
Ryan was use to doing house work being the omega of the pack.
He set the stove on medium then turned around and smiled at the beta before saying "house wife at your service." He bowed at the end of his sentence his dimples showing.

"I'm sorry, I forgot your name and its kind of weird just calling you beta....well I guess it's better than calling you the name Emmett refers to you as." That made her stop in her rustling. She hissed low under her breath, rage filling her. It was a small thing, but still, for some reason, this had pushed her over the edge. First they left her here to babysit, now she finds out Emmett's calling her things behind her back.

She squeezed the jucie in her hand so tightly it burst, spilling on the floor just as Ryan came into the kitchen with her and stepped in it. "Oh really?" She smirked, turning to look him in the eye. He was taking in the way she was staring stupidly at the fridge, and she caught a chuckle from his lips. She raised her eyebrows and bite back a run of insults, fighting with her explosive temper. "And what does Emmett call me?" She said smoothly, as if it didn't bother her, getting a handle on her anger and stepping back from the fridge, allowing him space.

"I got it." He said, and grabbed the bacon from her hands, wiping up the juice she'd spilled. Suddenly she felt useless again, and leaned back against the counter, watching him turn on the stove. "house wife at your service." He said, a little too cheerily. Inside, she was still seething.

She shrugged and looked as if she was unaffected by his amusement. "I'm Adalind." She said, licking her lips, and running her fingers through her hair. "I don't cook much." She gestured to the stove, feeling like she needed to explain her uselessness. "But if you tell me how to do it, I can help."

She glanced towards the back door. She couldn't wait for Emmett to get back so she could rip into him about what the omega had just said.

Lily Rae Hope



Lily watched Ryan and Addie as she threw him water and a towel, bracing herself. "Not gonna lie to you, Lil, this is going to hurt like a bitch, but the less you move the faster its over." She told her, and the wolf nodded slowly. Closing her eyes, her muscles tensed but she stayed silent as Ryan began cleaning her wounds, and Ada stitched up a few of the worse wounds. Her bright blue eyes closed tightly, and her ears pressed flat against her head as pain consumed her. She remained completely silent, though.

When it was finally over, Addie had her shift back into her human form, and Ryan gently lifted her onto the couch next to him. She flinched slightly as she was carefully out down, and her beta covered her with a blanket.
"Damn, I should have been a doctor." Her eyes were closed, but she could hear the smile in Addie's voice. Lily chuckled lightly, opening her eyes and watching her mate and the beta wonder off into the kitchen.

Almost as soon as they left he room, Lily quickly took the pain pills, and very slowly wrapped herself in the blanket and stood up off the couch. It was easier in her human form; her weight rested in her lower body, where she was uninjured. Slowly and silently, she made her way to her room.

Since long of her shirts were large enough on her to not touch any one her wounds, she took one of Ryan's shirts. She slowly pulled it on, flinching and cringing slightly as she had to move in a way they irritated her wounds. The shirt was so long on her it nearly reached her knees, but that was no surprise. It smelled strongly of him, but she was begining to get used to his scent. it was strange; his scent had become rather soothing to her now that they were mates.He was a solid foot taller then her.
Carefully pulling on a pair of shorts, she slowly left the room and carefully made her way to the kitchen. I was quite clear that she was in pain, but it was also very obvious that she was much too stubborn to just lay on the couch.
"Thanks." She softly told the two, offering them both a half smile as she leaned against the wall. She glanced at Adalind, noticing she looked irritated as she glanced at the back door. "What's the matter? Emmett irritate you again?" She smiled teasingly, her eyes flicking towards Ryan. She was glad they didn't fight too often; neither of them were particularly argumentative.

Emmett Owens


Emmett shot his cousin a dirty look and leaned closer. "Don't think for one second that I won't throw you out that window." He whispered in response to his question. It wasn't exactly a secret that he and Adalind didn't get along and he knew Russel was just being an ass about it. And alpha or not, he was still family and he wasn't about to take his shit.

It didn't take more than a look from RJ though for him to know that he was going outside with them. He nodded and pulled off his shirt, no need to ruin another, and tossed it in Adalind's direction mainly out of spite and simply to irritate her because he could. He then followed the others outside of the house and tore off the sweatpants and changed quickly. He could hear, a slightly odd sensation really, a snarky side comment from Adalind in his head about him being gone. Heard that. He snapped back even if it was only in his own head. It was ridiculously aggravating that no matter how hard he tried the further he got from the blonde, the bigger the knot in the base of his stomach.

Once in wolf form he bound forward towards the trees picking up the scent and following Kat in it's direction. He came to a halt behind her when the faint trail disappeared entirely. God this was getting weirder and weirder. He gave as best of a shrug as he could. There was no way they were picking the trail up again, it was barely there as it had been and since it seemed to have disappeared into thin air he knew they had no chance of finding whatever had attacked the omega.

He turned and headed back to the house. He changed back before he hit the front door and tugged back on his sweat pants. The changing back thing had become more of an inconvenience than anything else. Especially in this weather, you got used to the nudity and almost didn't even seem to notice it after a while, but in the early winter weather the sharp coldness as more annoying than the nudity itself.

"Don't even try to blame me." He said as he walked into the house. "She's the one with the attitude." He tried to force a smile to the bandaged up omega. He had nothing against her, the rest of the pack he was fine with. He honestly didn't understand how none of the others seemed to be haing the same issues they were. Everyone else was getting along, and they couldn't do it to save their lives, the closest they got was silent tolerance at best. It actually had him wondering if they would ever actually not hate each other. He doubted it.

"Thanks." Adalind heard from off to the side, and she turned to see that Lily had gotten up, gotten dressed, and was now standing with them in the kitchen. Ada just shrugged and nodded.

"Just doing as I was ordered, but I'm glad you're okay." She said with a small half-smile. Despite how irritated she was that she'd been left behind, she liked Lily.

"What's the matter? Emmett irritate you again? She asked, and Ada raised her eyebrows.

"When isn't he irritating?" She smirked.

Suddenly, she felt his presence, followed by his voice. "Don't even try to blame me." He said, and she clenched her teeth tightly. "She's the one with the attitude."

She rolled her eyes. "Yeah," she hissed. "And you're the asshole." She pushed herself off the counter, and advanced on him, pushing her palms into his chest and shoving him back hard. Your friend Ryan here tells me you've been calling me shit. She hissed at him in his mind, stepping dangerously close, eyes burning on his. They were never going to get along. This is never going to work. She said, allowing him to hear her thoughts. She didn't want to fight out here. If they were in their room, she'd cuss him out, but she wasn't going to throw another fit in front of the others. They fought in front of them way too much. You think talking shit about me is going to help?! It'll only piss me off, you asshole!

"Fuck you." She hissed under her breath so only he could hear. She wanted out of here more than anything in the world. Wanted her old life. She'd never asked for this. The Highlands had no right to force her to be this mans mate. Sometimes it was tempting to just walk away. To take off and never come back, forgetting about all the stress and tension, but she knew that was impossible. The Highland's would find her and kill her, not to mention that annoying loneliness she'd feel. A few feet out of the house from him gave her a knot in her stomach, what would miles do? Her fingers were twirling her mother's locket again, and she was about to explode, fighting with ever ounce of self control she had not to burst into a sudden fit of built up emotion.

Adalind knew she was picking at the smallest thing, but she didn't care. She was looking for any little reason to release the explosive mix of emotions she'd been feeling lately, and she knew he was too. It needed to end soon, before the Highland's showed up, but by the looks of things, she doubted they'd ever come to a point where they could at least live civilly, and that was even more frustration on her shoulders.

"Lily, you should probably go lay down and rest." She said without turning away from Emmett, hoping to at least get her out of the room, in case things got bad, as they so often did.

Lily Rae Hope



"Just doing as I was ordered, but I'm glad to see you're okay." Addie told Lily with a half-smile, causing her to give the beta a warm smile in response. "Thanks. It's less painful standing in human form, since the thing really only got my upper body." She informed her with a light shrug, keeping a smile on her lips.
"So which one do you like better? Blueberry or banana pancakes? You can lick the bowl." Ryan asked her with a smile, and Lily laughed lightly. "Blueberry, definitely. And I hope you don't mind I stole your shirt." She smiled, gesturing to the oversized shirt she wore that might as well have been a dress.

When Emmett came in, Lily sensed Addie's tension. "Don't even try to blame me. She's the one with the attitude." He glanced at Lily, giving her a forced smile. Despite the fact that Ada with clearly irritated with him, she offered him a half smile in response. "Yeah, and you're the asshole." Addie countered, advancing on her mate and shoving him back. Lily tensed, uncomfortable with the sudden turn of events.

She leaned back, away from them slightly, trying to figure out a way to defuse the situation. Just as she did, a tidal wave of nausea hit her. She grabbed into the nearest person, which happened to be Ryan, and covered her mouth. As her stomach churned strongly, she closed her eyes tightly and leaned over slightly, cause a ripple of pain down her sides.
Then, just as quickly as it had come, it was gone. What the hell was that?! she thought to herself, forgetting that Ryan could hear her. Had the beast infected her with something? It wasn't the virus- she knew she was immune. It must've been something else.

Shuddering slightly, she stood up straight again and looked towards her beta. "Addie, can you help my back to the couch?" She asked softly, hoping to keep her from arguing with her mate and asking her if she knew what might be going on with her.

Emmett Owens


"Yeah, and you're the asshole." He watched as she pushed herself off the counter and approached him, and shoving him back. Your friend Ryan here tells me you've been calling me shit. He smirked, obviously amused, as she stepped closer to him. The smirk played on his face even as she yelled at him. But his fists clenched at his sides, the annoyance and anger building inside of him.

He hit the point where he had enough. He was not about to let her win. His hand went under her chin, flush with the start of her throat as he lifted her and spun her around before slamming her into the wall, probably harder then he should have. It all happened much quicker than he had expected and next thing he knew his lips were on hers. It had been more instinct than anything else, something his body wanted to do even though his brain didn't. But he figured it wasn't a half bad move, it would surely piss Adalind off, and he knew that she had to at least want it a little bit too and liking it would piss her off more than anything else.

He felt his muscles relax a bit. It was weird. She seemed to be both the cause and the antidote for his anger. He pulled back and dropped her before giving her a triumphant grin "You too." He had won that round, for now anyway, and so he walked away. As he did, he felt Russel near him. "You mean I get to kill her? Yay!" He said feigning excitement. [similarly to (x)]

He continued walking until he was out of the room and back in his own. He wanted to shower and get redressed. He didn't want to deal with anyone right now, especially not Addie. He couldn't help but feel instantly more aggravated just by her presence. It pissed him off even more that not only did everyone else seem to get along fine, but he also hated being too far away from her. He hated how much he had enjoyed that kiss, hated that it didn't seem to just be part of the game. This entire situation just fueled his bad temper. He closed the door and collapsed onto the bed, lying on his back and taking a few deep breaths before getting up again and moving over to his dresser to find something clean to wear.

Adalind caught the smirk on Emmett's lips and readied herself for a fight, smirking right back, hands balled into fists at her sides. She saw rage in his eyes, and his hand snapped out, grabbing her throat, and lifting her into the air, slamming her against a wall. She barely had time to be shocked or register pain, before his lips were on hers.

At first she was stunned, and tried to push him off her, anger fueling her, but then she relaxed, and she imagined steam literally hissing off her as she reached for his shirt and pulled him closer to her, wanting more. Anger still burned in her, and she was furious that she was enjoying it, while her brain screamed to push him off, her body seemed to want more. She felt him relax too, so clearly he was feeling the same thing she was.

And then he dropped her, with an infuriatingly superior smile. "You too." He said, before walking away, saying something to Russell she didn't quite hear. Suddenly, she felt his absence sharply, and hated the fact that ever part of her wanted to chase after him. However, she kept her feet rooted to the ground. She was still too stunned and confused to react.

Very rarely did Ada ever show shock. She was usually the picture of cool, and calm, except when fighting with Emmett of course. He seemed to be the only one who could spark a reaction with her, and it was irritating. Now, she stood against the wall looking shell-shocked, hands shaking sightly. What the fuck was that? She shot him in anger.

"Addie, can you help my back to the couch?" Lily's voice pulled her from her shock, and she turned to the omega with a dull nod.

"Uhm, yeah, sure." She said, coming forward and assisting her back to the couch, she wanted to sit down in sort out what the hell had just happened, she wanted to run back to her room and fall onto the bed, and figure it out, but he'd gone there and she cursed herself for not getting there first. She sighed, looked at Lily, on the couch, and ran her fingers through her hair, hand at her throat, twirling her mothers locket.

Ada groaned and turned on her heel, headed towards her room. Afterall, it was their room, she had a right to use it too, and she wasn't going to back down by avoiding him. She wasn't going to give him the satisfaction of knowing just how much he'd gotten to her. She pushed open the door, not saying anything as she closed it again behind her and leaned on it for a second, before crossing to her own dresser, deciding she needed to do something productive before she expolded, so she may as well get dressed.

Emmett Owens



He had to admit it was pretty satisfying to know that he had gotten to her. And there was no denying it, even if he somehow hadn't noticed her practically melting into his arms of tugging at his shirt, the bond linked him into her brain and he could tell just how much she was enjoying it. He could also tell how both annoyed and confused she was afterward. He was quite pleased with himself. He had won that round and that's all that mattered, he could worry about her retaliation later.

When he heard her question he simply smiled to himself and ignored it as he pulled the drawer open and dug out a grey t-shirt and a pair of jeans. He stripped down and pulled on a pair of boxer shorts and then the jeans and was doing them up as Adalind entered the room. He didn't have to turn around to know who it was yet he did anyway, giving her a slightly amused looked as she leaned against the door. He picked up the t-shirt from the bed before turning to the blonde.

"What's up your ass today, Blondie?" He commented raising an eyebrow at her like he had no idea why she seemed so aggravated. "Mad that you had to stay home and help clean up because mommy wouldn't let you come out and play with the big kids?" He patronized. If there was one thing he was good at, it was being an asshole and apparently getting under her skin.

He could have put on his shirt but he was far to distracted by his little game. Besides he figured being half naked after, well basically assaulting her, like he had, could only help him at this point. He figured if it did anything it might be distract her from wanting to kill him.

Ada could feel his eyes on her, could sense his gloating. "What's up your ass today, Blondie?" She heard, and her shoulders stiffened, freezing in her work of digging furiously through her drawers. She gritted her teeth, and fought with her self control. "Mad that you had to stay home and help clean up because mommy wouldn't let you come out and play with the big kids?" That did it.

She spun, eyes like daggers on his. He stood there, annoying smirk on his face, and while she knew she was only giving him what he wanted by reacting, she didn't care. He had a habit of pushing her too far. "Big kids? I'm sorry is that supposed to include you?" She hissed, eyebrows raised. She didn't even pretend not to notice his lack of a shirt, giving him a look, smirk on her lips. "Please, I don't mind helping my pack in any way Kat needs me to." She said with a shrug, as if she didn't care.

There were a thousand things she wanted to scream at him, but she couldn't quite find the words, so she she sent a wave of pure hatred and anger his way, allowing him to feel her full rage. "You're such an asshole. If the Highland's don't kill us, we'll end up killing each other!" She advanced on him, pushing him like she had in the kitchen. "As soon as the Highland's are gone, so am I." She hissed, face inches from his, not knowing if she could really make good on the threat, seeing as leaving him would mean leaving the pack, but not caring. "I didn't ask for this either, you know. You don't have to be such a prick all the time."

Inside, she knew she was giving him exactly what he wanted. A reaction, but she didn't care. It felt good to get her frustration out. Fighting with him was always so exhausting, but at least she could let her explosive emotions out. She leaned back a little, and twirled her locket, what she couldn't find the words to say out loud, she sent him mentally.

Kat Thorn



Kat growled, trying to pick up the scent again as the two males made their way back home. Her nose to the ground, she slowly made her way around the perimeter of their territory. When she found nothing, she growled irritatedly. She circled the territory again, alone, daring the beast to attack her.
When she saw a small flutter of movement, she lunged at it. Claws out and teeth bared, her jaws snapped shut around her victim. . . A rabbit. Snarling, she dropped the animal and turned back to return to the home.

She paused outside the house, carrying her clothes from beside th door where she left them into the woods, where she then shifted and pulled them on.
Brushing out her hair, she entered the pack home. She was clearly irritated.

Kat gave a sharp whistle, calling her pack.'Come with your pack to the living room.' she mentally told Russell. She sat down on the couch, next to the omega. "Are you alright?" She asked the omega absently, who nodded numbly.
When the pack began to gather, she sat up straight and look them straight in the eye. "We can't hide from this thing anymore. It's killed four of our pack members- nearly four. We need to think of a way to lure it in, and kill it. This will have to involve all of us cooperating, and working together. One mistake, and the whole pack could easily be murdered."

She looked over the wolves, gauging their reaction. "We will do it tonight. Since we need bait and everyone needs to participate, Lily we'll put you in the open, with a small cut so it will catch the scent of your blood. All of us will be surrounding the area, so as soon as it approaches we can pounce."

Emmett Owens


"Right, that's why you looked so pissed off about it." Emmett commented, rolling his eyes. He felt the wave of foreign anger roll across his mind but ignored it. "As long as I get to kill you firs." He agreed with a mock smile. He stepped forward, returning to the position he had been before she had pushed him back, getting just as in her face as she had been in his, maybe even more now that they were almost pressed against one another. "Good." He growled back.

He was almost glad that they were interrupted by a whistle and Russel calling them all into the living room. He didn't know what he would have done next and after the kiss earlier, he didn't quite trust himself with it. He stepped back with a huff, pulling on his shirt and walking out of the bedroom and down the hall to the living room, not bothering to close the door behind him.

Once in the living room he plopped down onto the middle of the large white sofa. "What's going on?" he asked, only having got about half of the conversation.
"I'm game. Anything to get out of this house." He said. He needed space, he was unable to just sit indoors all day everyday. He needed to change, he needed to run and he couldn't even remember the last time he'd been able to go out and just get pissed drunk at a bar with some strangers and just forget about everything else. Plus he wasn't so comfortable with the idea of some crazy ass creature living just outside their door, just waiting for one of them to go out alone so it could them.

"I'm in. I think its time we started fighting back."

Adalind rolled her eyes, ready to retaliate with a wave of insults, but they were interrupted, and and was grateful. She gave a smirk as he pulled back, put on his shirt, and left. She glanced at her dresser. Risk missing a little bit of the meeting to get dressed, or go out there in an old tshirt and shorts? She sighed and decided to leave the room. She had enough on her hands already with Emmett, she didn't need the alphas mad at her too.

In the living room, she plopped into a chair, purposely ignoring Emmett, even with her mind, holding back anything he might sense, as she listened intently to her alpha. "We can't hide from this thing anymore. It's killed four of our pack members- nearly four. We need to think of a way to lure it in, and kill it. This will have to involve all of us cooperating, and working together. One mistake, and the whole pack could easily be murdered." Kat said, and Ada nodded her agreement as she went on.

"We will do it tonight. Since we need bait and everyone needs to participate, Lily we'll put you in the open, with a small cut so it will catch the scent of your blood. All of us will be surrounding the area, so as soon as it approaches we can pounce." Adalind grinned, practically jumping out of her seat at the idea of a fight. Just what she needed. She'd missed fighting. She was a fighter, and a hunter, not a housewife, and sitting around the house all day, everyday was driving her insane.

"Are you sure that's a good idea?" She heard Russel murmur. "I mean, I don't know what else we could do...but, if we aren't as quick as this...thing, what will happen to Lily?"

Ada smiled at that. She wasn't very big. As a wolf, she was actually closer to a large dog than a wolf, but what made her a fighter and hunter was her speed and ability to jump and run far distances. She had no doubt in her mind that they'd keep Lily safe. "Whoever we send will be safe, but I agree with Ryan about who should go." She said with a reassuring smile toward the omegas, Lil, who'd Kat volunteered, and Ryan, who was volunteering himself.

"I'm in. I think its time we started fighting back." She heard Emmett say, and Addie looked over at him, eyebrows raised.

"Well, look at that. We actually agree on something." She said with a small laugh.

Lily Rae Hope



Lily tensed slightly as Kat emerged the room, clearly not happy about something unknown. She pulled her legs towards herself and covered her body so the wolves that she called to the room wouldn't see the extent of her injuries. She hated feeling weak.

"We can't hide from this thing anymore. It's killed four of our pack members- nearly five. We need to think of a way to lure it in, and kill it. This will have to involve all of us cooperating, and working together. One mistake, and the whole pack could easily be murdered. We will do it tonight. Since we need bait and everyone needs to participate, Lily we'll put you out in the open, with a small cut so it will catch the scent of your blood. All of us will be surround the area, so as soon as it approaches we can pounce." Kat informed the pack, and Lily took only a second to take it in.

When the other pack members started to disagree, she sat up and squared out her shoulders. "Well then what are you going to do with me, if I'm not bait? I can't fight, and if you have someone babysit me then you are down a member. Weaker. If you leave me alone, it's even more likely that I will be killed. If I'm left out, it will look like you are just disposing of your weakest member. Anyways, they've already decided I'm pretty yummy." She pointed out, with a small playful smile t her last statement.
"And then at least I can be used for something. If it makes you guys feel better, I guess Ryan could be bait aswell. If they are even logical creatures, they will probably just think that we're going to die anyways." She offered a half smile to her pack, tilting her head to the side slightly.

"I'm really fine with being bait."




[[Oh, important fact I forgot to put on the front page: your wolf's mate dies, so do they. ;) ]]

Kat Thorn




"Are you sure that's a good idea? I mean, I don't know what else we could do...but, if we aren't as quick as this...thing, what will happen to Lily?" Russell pointed out, glancing at Lily. Kat was tempted to snap at him- point out that she was from her pack, not his but for once she held her tongue.
"As far as we know, there is only one of them. They are greatly outnumbered. We will be faster than him."

""Well then what are you going to do with me, if I'm not bait? I can't fight, and if you have someone babysit me then you are down a member. Weaker. If you leave me alone, it's even more likely that I will be killed. If I'm left out, it will look like you are just disposing of your weakest member." She glanced at Lily when she spoke, and nodded.
"Exactly. The thing may not even come if we sed out a perfectly healthy wolf. It didn't even cme near us when we went out to track it. Even when I was alone."

She glanced over at Ryan when he offered himself up. "Well. . ." She paused, thinking for a moment. "I guess we can let you got out with her. If it doesn't show up, though, you're out and we'll just put out Lily. You will need to give yourself a small cut and carry her ahead, trying to get as much of both of your blood on the grass and trees leading up to the clearing so you guys' smell will cover up ours."
She looked over at her beta for a moment. "Me and Ada will lead my pack to the east. Ada and Russ, you will stay towards the south, and me and Emmet will stay towards the north. To avoid any fights. Anyone have something to add?"

With that, she stood up. "You guys should eat and get ready. We'll go out in a few hours, while its still hanging around here."
Kat nodded once, and strode out of the room tensely, she was clearly still irritated.
