As the sun rose into the sky, the rage of a father could be heard through out the household. A secret that was never spoken of was uncovered. Angel heard her father’s voice and was scared of what he may do to her secret lover. She didn’t want her lover to die; after all she is carrying his child. She sat in her room waiting for her father to yell at her. Then he would find her lover and kill him on the spot. Her door to her room flew open and standing in the doorway was her father with a disappointed look on his face.
Her father was tall with long flowing hair, yellow eyes, and a temper that can not be defined. Angel looks at the floor of her room as he approached her. He let out a heavy sigh, “Is it true, did you get pregnant by one of my men?” She looked up at him, “Yes, father.” His eyes became filled with rage, “Who did this to you? Was it Sergeant William, if it was; I’m going to kill him!” Angel shook her head, “No. It wasn’t Sergeant William. It was your Command Sergeant Alex Dilamore.” Her father gives her a confused look, “What?”
Angel fell before him, “It was Alex Dilamore, but please don’t kill Alex I love and I need him to bring our child into this world. Please, father. Don’t kill him.” He kneels down to her, “Does he love you back?” Angel had tears running down her face, “Yes, we are secretly engaged.” Her father’s anger melted away, “You’re engaged and you didn’t tell me?” She hugs him tightly, “Because I didn’t know how you would take the news.”
The moon was full and the scene was playing over and over in Angel’s head as tears ran down her face. She ran through the forest with fear running through out her whole body. She was running away from her mother and father, because she feared for her life and child’s. A masked female killed her lover in front of her eyes. On top of that she was being chased by assassins. Not only that, she was now six months into her pregnancy. There was too much fear and stress coming at her all at once.
As Angel got deep into the forest she started to get lost. Angel hid with the shadows and anywhere else she could fit. She finally got far enough away from her home, then started to slow and calm down. She knew that this was too much for her child to handle. Her child would never be born and this is what she feared the most. She sat under a tree and looked at the night sky, “Why is this happening to me?” She closes her eyes and started to cry, she thought her life would end in this forest.
Bells rang loud through out Castle Night Wolf; it was the wedding of the princess to the Commanding Sergeant Major of Shobeck’s army. The king and queen where there as well as the whole army and citizens of Castle Night Wolf. Shobeck walked Angel down the aisle with a big smile on his face. He was happy that his only child was getting married and he was going be a grandparent. He was also happy that his daughter picked an intelligent man to be her husband. He was gaining a great son in-law, even though he was going to kill him when he found out about them, but he was letting it go for now. It was his daughter’s wedding and nothing could ruin this special moment.
The wedding march filled the air, as Angel reached the altar. Alex stood there in his tuxedo with a smile. He reached out to her and took her paw into his. The minister looks at them, “We are gathered here today to bring Alex Dilamore and Angel Shobeck together in holy matrimony.” The minister takes out a scroll, “If anyone has any rejections or any reason why these two shall not be married they will be killed by the king, if the groom does not take his daughter as his only wife in sickness and health. Through richness and poorness, the groom also will be killed by the king himself.” The minister puts the scroll down, “Now then, do you Alex Dilamore take Angel Shobeck as your wife?” Alex looks at the minister, “After hearing what will happen to me if I don’t say yes, I don’t think I have much of a choice.” A loud gasp by the witnesses echoed through out the church.
Shobeck gives an evil look at Alex. Alex laughed uncomfortably, “I was only kidding.” Angel leans over to him, “You’re digging your grave just to let you know.” Alex shrugged his shoulders, “I know and to answer your question, yes I do take her as my wife. My only wife.” The minister turns to Angel, “Do you Angel Shobeck take Alex Dilamore as your husband?” Angel looks at Alex, “I do.” The minister raises his arms, “In the power that is invested in me, I pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride.” Alex leans over to Angel and gives her a long kiss on the mouth.
Angel touched her lips and was remembering how her husband’s kiss felt. She wiped her eyes, “I beg the higher powers, if this is my last night alive. Please take my child now.” A sudden pain went through her body. She grabbed her stomach and screamed in pain. Her scream echoed through out the forest. She notices that she started to bleed, “No, not now.” Her breathing got heavier and the pains in her stomach got worse.
She was losing her child and there was noting she could do about it, “My father where are you when I need you the most?!?!” She groans in labor pains as she cries heavily, “Please I beg the higher powers to take my child. I beg of you to spare the baby from the pain I am about to endure. All I ask is to lay with my child before I am taken.” Intense pains of labor as she gives birth to her dead child. Rain began to fall as the large group of feet start to get closer to her.
Angel cries heavily as she begins to dig a makeshift grave, “My poor child, born dead to me. I shell give it a place next to me to rest for all eternity.” The sound of brush being pushed aside as a male voice from behind her said, “No need to cry your highness. For soon you will join your child. And the pain of your separation from your child will soon end.” She looks up as she knew that she is corner by the group that was chasing her “That voice, I know that voice. You couldn’t be him.” She said to herself as turns around in the dirt and yells at them, “I demand to see your faces!”
The three bobcats whispered among themselves. The wolf growled some at the bobcats, “That’s enough, men. Only I will show my face.” The sound of cloth being ripped off as the wolf revealed who he wad, “Behold your executioner.” Angel gasped as she saw the wolf's face, it was Max her dead husband's best friend, “No, you can’t be. I must be deceived, you can’t be Max. You’re the godfather of my child and you’re my husband’s best friend”
Max she grin evilly towards her, “All of that does not matter, for I’ve slain my own ex-teammate Alex Dilamore, when he told me to go to hell; when I asked him was it worth getting involved with you. Now princess, your life will end here.” As the sound of gun’s hammer being cocked as he raises his gun at her.. Angel faces her end by the hands of her dead lover’s friend, “I must know who sent you after me, Max.” Max shakes his head, “I can’t tell you, but I can tell you that this 45 I have will do one thing for you.” Angel gasp in fear as the sound of a finger starting to pull on the trigger of the gun as he spoke, “It makes me promise that your death will be quick and painless, Angel...”
The sound of a rifle going off could be heard. Max fell back as blood flew out of his body. The three men left standing pulled out their guns, when they did this; six rifles went off. All three men hit the ground and were dead. Angel looks behind her and she saw a male Alaskan Husky sitting up in a tree with a sniper rifle. Fear ran through her as he climbed down the tree. The husky walks towards her, “Are you ok?”
Angel couldn’t answer him because she in shock. She heard a lot of bad things about the rebel army. She thought that this husky would kill her, if he knew who she was. She fell to her knees, “If you’re going to kill me, do it now.” The husky tilts his head, “Why would I want to kill you?” Angel looks at him with tears running down her face, “Because I’m from Castle Night Wolf.” The husky puts his paw out, “I won’t kill you because you’re form Castle Night Wolf. I’m JJ Husk by the way. Sorry for not killing those men earlier, but since they are dead, now. It’s going to be ok, every thing will be ok.” JJ helps her back to her feet and leads her away from the dead bodies.
Max notices he was alone as he slow got back up, “JJ Husk, I will remember that name. For I will come for you and I will kill you along with Angel.”A female voice came from behind him, “No, Max. For you have just failed.” Fear ran through him as he realized who was behind him, “Queen Kathlyn!?!? Please, give me a chance to finish what I started.” Kathlyn laughs evilly at him, “You think I will give you a second chance, Max? After you showed your own face to my daughter? You think for one second that you should draw another breath? You are deeply mistaken, Max. My daughter is highly intelligent and she will find out who is behind the death of her beloved Alex. So to keep her guessing for a little while longer, your life must end now.”
Max fell before her on his knees, “Your majesty, I beg of you, please don’t.*sound of fire being lit.* Please don’t! Mocking him Kathlyn brought up a single hand as a dark flame begins to build up in her hand, “Please don’t, just shut up and die!” He screamed in pain as the dark flame burned him alive. Shelaughed at his death as she watch him, “Now that’s done, I shall be waiting for your return my daughter. I will end your life, for I won’t let anything bring my king down from his throne.” She walked away slowly from Max's burning body as she had a smile on her face waiting to kill her daughter herself.
