WR- The Journey to Paradise P21WOLF'S RAIN- THE JOURNEY TO PARADISECHAPTER 21A DREAM OF AN OASIS"They call me Fenrir.They say that I will bring about the end of the world.I wish it were true
I wish that I could undo these chains that bind me and destroy this hopeless world...But that would only cause more harm than good.However, I'm just a normal wolf- the last wolf.My freedom would mean only death for me, not these superstitious humans.But then again, maybe not.Maybe I'm not the last wolf, maybe freedom does not equate death, and maybe Paradise does exist for the living wolves
"________________________________________________________________(Back with Toboe, Tsume, Sue and Hige)The four of them trudged through the snow, in wolf form, not knowing which way to go.None of them could find Kiba's scent and they were getting worried.Toboe was oddly subdued, Hige had his ears flattened. Tsume just looked angry.Sue trailed slightly behind the three boys, tears staining her cheeks."They're gone
WR- The Journey to Paradise P20WOLF'S RAIN- THE JOURNEY TO PARADISECHAPTER 20THE FALLEN KEEPThe howling wind was bitter and fresh, throwing snow into the beaten faces of the wolves.Asante- who was now walking, despite her limp- and Tsume trailed Kiba, who once again was racing ahead.Hige, who was a little further back, turned to see the others.Sue, Toboe and Blue had fallen considerably behind, their bodies completely frozen by the harsh wind."Kiba, wait!" Hige called up to him.Tsume halted.Asante limped a few paces further, and then looked back, meeting Hige's eyes with concern. She looked forward to Kiba, who seemed unaffected by the snowstorm.Hige, who by this time was bristling with anger, sprinted past the two of them, grabbing Kiba by the shoulder, pulling him backwards."Damn it, will you wait up?!" Hige hollered above the wind.Kiba looked back at him with shock.Hige panted for a few seconds."Come on Kiba," Asante growled lowly filling Hige's silence. "You're moving way too fast. You're not using
WR- The Journey to Paradise P19WOLF'S RAIN- THE JOURNEY TO PARADISECHAPTER 19NOT COMPLETELY HEARTLESSAll Sue knew, was that they were in a forest of some kind. They'd been running for hours, and the strong blizzard coming from the other direction didn't help.In fact, it left small icicles hanging from the wolves' fur."Are we almost there?" Sue panted."You would know if we were." Tsume snapped."No I wouldn't." She replied frostily."It's so cold!" Toboe whined."I have had enough of you two!" Tsume growled. He barred his teeth at the two pups snarling, the cold having apparently numbed his brain, as well as his feelings.Kiba growled, but before he had time to react, Asante jumped in front of the pups, defending them from Tsume's scorn.Asante stood right in front of the male, now in human form, and barred her teeth back at him."You do NOT want to mess with me." She growled, grabbing him by the collar of his jacket. "You're just mad 'cause you're cold. That's all."Tsume's scowl deepened and he pulled away fr
WR- The Journey to Paradise P18WOLF'S RAIN- THE JOURNEY TO PARADISECHAPTER 18OUT OF THE LOOPZow walked along the dusty plain, bottle in one hand, gun strap slung over his shoulder.He could smell the wolves again, their scent getting stronger and stronger with every step he took. A loud whirring noise snatched his attention.The multiple airships that floated almost gently overhead looked like huge black, murderous flies in the broken sky."Lady Jaguara
" He whispered breathlessly. "Jaguara's troops
"*******"The noble went that way right?" Asked Toboe looking off into the distance from the bridge.For a moment nobody replied."He sure did
" Hige said flatly."Are we going?" Sue questioned, almost timidly."Well yeah! We have too." Hige replied shifting slightly.Tsume, who had been leaning against the bridge wall next to Toboe, opened his eyes slightly to watch Kiba."So where are you guys headed?" Blue asked, turning as if to address them properly."We're all trying to make our way to paradise."
WR The Journey to Paradise P17WOLF'S RAIN- THE JOURNEY TO PARADISECHAPTER 17FALLING ASH AND BROKEN HEARTSKiba stood slowly, testing out his weight on his broken body.He raised his head slowly to look at that treacherous blood red moon
before it was smothered in clouds as black as the ash that surrounded them.He cast a glance over the broken bodies of his pack, hunched and defeated in the dirt that they lay, the two pups curled beside Hige snuggled together for comfort.A glimmer of grey caught his eye, and Kiba turned his head slowly to avoid further injury.The grey female, rose shakily to all fours, her green gaze as harsh and unforgiving as always, the grey male at her side, as they supported each other.Asante said nothing; she just stared at him, a gaze so bitter and broken that it made Kiba want to both shiver in shame and cry at the same moment.She limped over to the other three, gently nudging Sue trying to get her to wake up."No." Sue whispered. "I want to sleep
I want to stay here. There'
