Silver light glistened through the impossibly high tops of the evergreens
overhead, casting shimmering slivers along my pathway. The eerie but
beautiful glow lit a guide that only I could see to lead me through the
Bellewoods, encouraging my paws faster across the mulchy ground.
Being in my wolf form gave me a feeling of freedom.
Although my guards remained close by, they were never near enough to
catch up to me if the occasion required it, my speed gathering with each
twist and turn of the trees, this forest my playground, and had been for
many, many years. They were there as a requirement, rather than a true
safety measure. This was my land, crown land, belonging not only to the
Kingdom of Silverhold, but to my family specifically.
Every rock and dale were known to me, the storms that passed through
never escaping my sure footing as I danced gracefully over the small
passageways, avoiding the molehills and hidden tunnels often developed by
playful children exploring as I had in my youth. But those days were long
past, the city’s kids running freely through my protected lands no more. We
no longer allowed outsiders among us, those we didn’t fully know and vet.
We couldn’t afford to make any more careless mistakes, not when it had
cost us so much already.
These forests were for me and my sister, Cyndella, alone, alongside the
very few we permitted under the strictest of our purview. Even the staff kept
their own children out now, even though we hadn’t explicitly forbidden
their play, but it went without saying that it was forbidden to trespass there.
Today, there were no children and no other bodies to encounter when I
ducked below narrow, fallen branches. My gray ears tucked in as to not
catch the burrs in the thick of my glistening fur, and my intense eyes fixated
on the next curve of the landscape, lest I chance upon some unsuspecting
deer or rabbit in my view.
At this point, anything would be a welcome sight.
The forest, enchanting as it were, was oddly still, the quiet unnerving
me, and for a moment, I halted, bothered by the lack of sound. Although I
hadn’t expected to come across another fae per se, it did seem odd that I
hadn’t heard birdsong since my departure from the castle’s gates over an
hour earlier. It was almost as if something had warned them off already.
“Are you all right, Alpha?”
The question came from a distance, Calliver a way off to my right, and
caught me unawares. The fact that I’d been caught off guard annoyed me,
and I felt the need to return the favor. After a lifetime of being watched by
others, first as a prince and then as the Alpha King of Silverhold, I should
have expected that someone would see my moment of uncertainty. Still, it
irked me. For all my power, privacy was one thing I could never have.
I raised my snout, gaze fixating on Calliver, half-hidden in the thicket. I
hoped he could feel my rising resentment through the leaves, but I didn’t
wait around to gauge his reaction.
