Posing for the Pack - 8. Chapter 8 - All isn't fair in war

Don't worry half of the other chapter is written already!

Chapter 8 - All isn’t fair in War

I was cold.

My nose twitched as the cool wind blew across it and made me focus on the winter landscape I was standing in. Snow lay in thin layers all around me in this unknown land, a place I had never seen before in my life. Where was I? How had I gotten here? Where was my alpha? My pack? My ears swiveled on my head, capturing any distinct sounds around me only to hear the long stretch of utter silence.

“Alpha?” I said, looking around me and still seeing no sign of anyone I knew. Fried rat shit, how did I always end up in odd situations like this? I thought as I stood and looked around me again hoping this time I might get a clue as to what the hell was going on.

I heard something then, my head whipped around as the sound disappeared into the frozen tree line. A whimper, I’d heard something whimper. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up my heart pounding loud enough to echo in my head. Without thinking I started walking towards the pain-filled sound. Like a beacon in called to me, pulling my paws in that direction against all conscious thought. The snow crunched with each step I took, the trees swallowed me as I walked even further into the wintery woods.

“Where are you?” I called out. Some part of me needed to find whoever it was. I needed to help them, I felt it deep down inside of my soul. The sound only increased as I walked, no one replied no matter how often I called out. Pushing through the thick layer of snow I kept going until I felt the ache in my muscles and cold in my paws. Time ceast to exist, rolling off of me like years were minutes and eons only hours. How long had I been walking? Why did it feel like I was going nowhere, but the urge to keep going drove me forward. I couldn’t stop, something told me I had to find whoever it was.

Pushing myself through the deep snow I kept walking. The wind surged growing stronger as I walked stinging me with icy blasts that made my eyes water and my breath catch. “Where are you! Please, tell me where you are?” I yelled for what felt like the thousandth time. Why wouldn’t they answer me? Why couldn’t I find them? “Please!” I begged, not knowing who I was pleading with. My feet faltered as I tripped and fell into the deep snow, sinking into the cold like a stone that could no longer move forward. The tug was painful now, deep in my core I could feel it calling to me but I couldn’t move any further. My body shook with the child of the blasting wind howling around me like a storm that blinded everything in a white wall around me.

“Please,” I whispered looking out into the vast white nothing. Not even the trees remained in my cold prison. I wanted to give up. I wanted to go back to my alpha and my pups, forget this horrible nightmare I was stuck in.

“I am here pup,” a warm breath ghosted across my muzzle as the strange deep voice spoke.

I opened my eyes, not realizing that they had shut. How long had I been asleep? My gaze drifted to the green forest around me and the lush vegetation no longer smothered in snow. Holy Mother nature, I was losing my mind. Panicked my attention focused on the massive creature leaning over me, it’s head the size of a boulder, and it’s eyes the bluest shade of crystal staring down at me with an all-knowing expression.

Holy fucking shit, the creature was a wolf. A massive wolf with midnight black fur that somehow seemed to constantly fade in and out with the surrounding forest, like a ghost. I blinked trying to take in the sight before me, unsure what I was even seeing. “Who are you?” I asked in complete awe. What the heck had I eaten last night? Was I hallucinating?

The wolf tilted it’s head, it’s large muzzle still so close to my own that I didn’t dare move. “Do not fear me, my pup,” the wolf said, it’s voice echoing in a deep timber around us. It didn’t actually speak, but I could hear its voice as if it was. My ears swiveled back and forth trying to catch the sound that was most likely were in my head. Anxiety warred in my gut as I watched the massive beast shift closer, its warm breaths breezing across my face.

“Why am I here? Where am I? Where is my alpha? My pups?” I asked feeling the anxiety morph into fear. Had this creature taken me? Was this massive wolf part of Hexis pack?

“Calm yourself,” the wolf said, brushing its warm nose against my muzzle halting any other questions that might have erupted. A shiver worked its way through my body, followed by a warm glow in my belly that I didn’t expect to feel. “All is well, your pups and alpha sleep soundly beside your mortal body.”

My mortal body? I thought, my eyes shifting nervously around my surroundings and back to the massive creature. “I don’t understand, what is this place?” My eyes shifted again to the lush forest that surrounded us. Birds chirped happily in the trees, while squirrels scurried unafraid nearby. To my surprise, I could see deer walking not far off in the distance, completely unfazed by the massive predator in front of me. My ears flicked back when the scritching sound of claws on wood caught my attention. Quickly my attention snapped to the left where four squirrels chittered loudly their bushy tails the biggest I’ve ever seen. Each other the plump creatures scampered towards me as if running towards my open mouth willingly. My mouth watered as they ran closer, their chunky legs calling out to my hungry gut. Yassss—

“This place goes by many names,” the massive wolf interrupted. My head snapped back to the massive creature just as the four delectable squirrels scurried across my feet without fear and back into the nearest tree. You’ve got to be shitting— “But, in this instance, I shall call it the beyond, it is a place of peace and paradise to those who seek it,” he said gently, completely unaware of how little I was paying attention to him.

The massive wolf leaned forward to press it’s warm nose against the side of my head and down my throat, quickly gain my attention. It was an intimate gesture, something I’d only ever done with my brother and alpha. Instinctively I tilted my head to reveal my throat, the warm feeling spreading through my gut so similar to the love I felt for my pups when they were curled up beside me on our pelts. I didn’t move for a few moments as the wolf scented me, his breaths even hotter closer to my throat.

“You are as perfect as I envisioned you to be. I only wish I had been able to stay a little longer with you,” the wolf said in it’s strange mind talk as it pulled away. “Giving you up is one of the hardest trials fate has ever demanded of me.”

I didn’t understand what he was saying to me. Stay with me longer? I’d never seen this creature before in my life. I would have remembered meeting a wolf the size of a small mountain. I was forgetful but that was pushing it a little too far even for me. “I don’t understand. I don’t know you,” I said bewildered.

“I am not permitted to interfere with the struggles of mortal beings, I cannot save you or your pack from the battle you must face. There is much bloodshed and loss, but a great reward if you are victorious. You cannot afford to lose in the upcoming war, all luperci depend on it,” It said as it stepped back a step, the stoic expression unwavering even as it’s voice held some underlying emotion.

Oh, well that vague comment just made everything make sense! I thought, even more, confused than before. “I still don’t understand, are you talking about Hexis? Tell me who are you?” Nothing made sense, not this massive creature, not where I was, nothing. Had I finally eaten too many squirrels and I’d choked on a bone and died? I’d be really pissed if I’d died choking on a squirrel bone, even worse, Naga better not raise my pups. I’d really be pissed then.

“Listen to me Ira,” the wolf said bringing my attention back to its blue eyes. “You are stronger than you believe, do not let anger be what fuels you. Accept what is in your heart, and who you really are.” The massive wolf leaned in again, swiping it’s massive tongue across my cheek in a gentle kiss so similar to my what my adopted dama had done to me as a pup. “No matter what path you take, I will be here waiting for you when you arrive.”

My hands reached out and I grasped at the ghost-like fur on the side of his head. His fur ghosted through my fingers even though I could feel the soft texture of every strand. “I don’t understand. Why won’t you tell me who you are?” I repeated again my heart racing in my chest.

The wolf stepped back, it’s massive paws soundless against the lush grass. Its black fur shimmered and faded in and out like a halo around it, a mirage blending like an ethereal creature into its equally immortal backdrop. “Please, tell me who you are? What am I supposed to do?” I begged the fading wolf.

Blue eyes stared into my own, bright and crystal, a reflection of my own. A mirror image of my self reflected back from the deep pools of blue even as the black furred wolf disappeared into the surrounding forest as if it had never been there. The forest began to fade away disintegrating into blackness swallowing me up and taking me with it.

“The answers are inside you, accept who you are Ira,” the deep voice whispered through the ascending darkness. As I fell into the deep sinking abyss I couldn’t help but think that if the answers are inside me that we might all be fucked.

I woke with a gasp, my eyes snapping open to look at the den walls surrounding me. Zora lay behind me in his luperci form pressed close to my back with his solid arm draped over my side. Curled in a pile beside me was my four pups fast asleep and warm against my belly as they slept soundly. It had been a dream, everything was ok, I was where I was supposed to be.

“Something woke you,” Zora said gently, his husky voice deep with sleep as he rubbed at my side.

“It was just a dream,” and hopefully it was or otherwise I was taking mind trips to a place called the beyond with very friendly giant wolves with self-help advice. Still, the dream had felt like more. There was a realistic quality that even wakefulness hadn’t tarnished. Also, I swear I could still smell flowers, and that definitely wasn’t coming from a den filled with newborn pups if you know what I mean.

“Tell me what you dreamed,” he said softly his muzzle pressing into the back of my shoulder as he licked gently at my fur.

I shivered as he licked a ticklish spot just below my shoulder blade. “Well first I was in the damn snow for hours just walking in place and then poof, all the sudden I was in this perfect forest call the beyond where apparently the juiciest squirrels are not afraid of me. Anyways there was a wolf the size of the moon hovering over me. He was super friendly and saying all kinds of foreboding omens that sounded kind of like the end of our entire race. Nothing to strange,” I said getting some of my crazy dreams out in a tumble of words, maybe a slight twitch or two under my eye.

“Everything with you is strange,” Zora paused licking my cheek soothingly, his arm tensing over my side. “What did the wolf say?” He asked, sounding interested.

“He said,” I paused, feeling my heart begin to race in my chest as the words started to seep into my conscious mind. I realized suddenly that there a lot of meaning to what the dream-mountain-wolf had said. “He said, that there was a war coming, one that we had to win because all luperci depended on it.” I tensed, thinking about the other things he’d said. “He also said that he would be waiting for me.”

Zora’s hand soothed down my side. “This war,” he said gently while rolling me over so I could see his face. “Weather is comes or not we will face it together and I will protect you and our pups till my last breath. Whatever happens, you will be safe.”

I swallowed past the lump forming in my throat. Didn’t he know that was the last thing I wanted, that if I watched him die I would lose a part of my soul. He was my alpha, I couldn’t live without him, I knew that down to my very large bones. “You know if you die, I won’t be far behind you.”

Zora growled dangerously, his fangs flashing as he did. “If I die you will live and raise our pups and help lead our pack, promise me right now that you will do as I say,” he growled his claws digging into my side slightly.

A whine escaped me, not from pain but because of the emotional turmoil tearing me apart inside. “I won’t promise anything that makes you feel comfortable with dying. You live, I live, that is the promise we made to each other and I plan to make you keep that promise,” I let out my own low growl as I nipped at my mate's muzzle.

Zora snarled but followed the aggressive sound with frantic long licks across my mouth till our tongues brushed in frantic kisses we couldn’t control. There was a desperate need in his that I could understand. I could feel the boil in my own blood as I pressed myself close to his body. “Promise me we will live till we’re old and most likely fat,” I gasped against his mouth my claws digging into his back as I clung to him.

Zora rumbled, deep and reassuring just as I felt his cock thrust into me without warning. Desperate for more I moved my hips closer, wrapping my lower body around my alpha till there was no space left between our tied bodies. “You are mine, and I am yours, and not even death will defy us.”

He was right. Nothing would ever come between me and my alpha. I would make sure of it. As I rode him to the edge of pleasure, I knew that I would burn down the entire world before I’d let anyone take away what was mine.

“As I fell into the deep sinking abyss I couldn’t help but think that if the answers are inside me that we might all be fucked.” Ira has to be one of my favorite characters ever.

That the Ghost Wolf will be waiting sounds ominous; Ira and Zora didn’t discuss the possibility of Z having to carry on without him. 

It’s great to see another chapter of this intriguing story. I hope you finish it.

At least he's honest with himself. I mean, I wouldn't put the fate of a species in Ira's hands either.

Sweet, clueless Ira didn’t realize he met his father?

As absentminded and silly as our dear Ira is, he is meant for greatness, so great and pure it can’t be hidden.  He is guided by love and wants so much love, he doesn’t recognize anger can hide fear and desire, he only focuses on being unwanted because he’s different.

Control, domination and destruction are the methods used against what is feared and not understood;  He’s been told he’s broken all his life but he is the whole one.  Rejected and despised, he still became an Alpha’s mate, he is the key in this war to come.
