Even though all three of their children were teenagers Alois still peeked in on them before going to bed at night. Even if he didnâ€™t check on the twins he rarely joined his wife in bed without checking on Ievis. He frowned upon realizing his son wasnâ€™t in bed. He went outside to find him, finally discovering Ievis sitting in the grass alone, staring up at the moon. He could tell he was frustrated and he wondered if his son had been trying to shift into a wolf again. â€śare you alright son?â€ť
â€śNoâ€ť Alois sat next to him â€śwere you trying to shift againâ€ť
â€śwhy is it just me? Why can my sisters shift and I canâ€™t and worse my wings are prettier than theirs. Itâ€™s justâ€¦â€ť
â€śIt doesnâ€™t matterâ€ť
â€śSon you just took more after your mother than me and theres nothing in the world wrong with that. I love her and the pack loves both her and youâ€ť
â€śI know it doesnt matter to anybody else in the pack dadâ€ť
â€śYou know we can just call a wolf to you. Itâ€™s kind of the same thing as when packs make humans wolvesâ€ť
â€śdadâ€¦nothing would make me feel more pathetic, can you please just stopâ€ť
â€śI cant just leave you feeling like this alone son. Fairies are amazing and so are elves. Youâ€™re the smartest being in this pack too and very well respected. Are you sure theres no particular reason you not being able to shift into a wolf bothers you beyond just that you want it?â€ť Ievis shifted uncomfortably and decided just to tell his dad why it mattered to him so much more now than ever â€śI justâ€¦I really liked this girl, obviously not a girl in our pack and she turned me down because Iâ€™m not a real wolfâ€¦her exact words dadâ€ť
â€śshe wasnâ€™t your mate right?â€ť
‘well no, she was just really cute and I havent found mine yet butâ€¦what if I find my mate and shes a wolf and thenâ€¦and then she doesnt want me either”
â€śThat would be horrible but one, you are a real wolf, its in your DNA and two, as heartbreaking as I know that would be you probably shouldnt want to be with your mate either if they are like that. Youâ€™re amazing and you should love yourself for all that you are instead of what you donâ€™t have. Youâ€™re my son, Youâ€™re a part of this pack and youâ€™re a great man and anybody who cant see that is stupidâ€ť
â€śwhy couldnâ€™t I at least be a cool looking fairy? What if shes a fairy and wont be with me because my wings are too pretty and girly. I mean maybe if shes an elf Iâ€™ll be passableâ€ť
‘son, as I said, start focusing on whats good about you and seeing the good in these flaws youâ€™re making up. Your wings are beautiful, maybe sheâ€™ll love that. I mean maybe your mate isnâ€™t any of the three races you are”
â€śsounds like a picnic for my kidsâ€ť
â€śI wouldnâ€™t trade your mother for any wolf in the world. Iâ€™m incredibly happy just as she is with me. Are you really so unhappy?â€ť Ievis sighed â€śIâ€™m sorry, I really am dad. I didnâ€™t mean it like that. Iâ€¦that girl just really shook me when she told me no because I wasnt a real wolfâ€¦I guess we can add Iâ€™m an ass to the reasons Iâ€™ll probably be single foreverâ€ť Alois put a hand on his sons shoulder, feeling for him. Ievis had always been hooked on love stories and had always been the sweetest kid around. It wasnâ€™t shocking that struggling to find a girl to love him would cause such a depression in him. At least he finally understood why not being able to shift had suddenly started to bother his son last year.
â€śYouâ€™re not an ass son. I was trying to give you a reality check when I asked that question. Come home with meâ€ť both men stood and Alois hated now noticing that his son had been crying.
â€śI know Iâ€™m being ridiculous.â€ť Ievis said as they made their way back to the house. He wiped at his face, more embarrassed than anything now.
â€śNo youâ€™re not, you have a big heart, but everything will work out in the end, youâ€™ll see. Itâ€™s also not pathetic to ask for a wolf of your own. Do you think every human who has ever asked for one is pathetic?â€ť
â€śNo, of course not.â€ť
â€śSo you donâ€™t think that either and if you change your mind, let us know.â€ť
He told Ievis goodnight once they got to his room and he sighed once his son had his door closed. He hated how much he was hurting and wished he would let him fix it. At least heâ€™d be able to show up that girl. Alois headed for his and Fronaâ€™s room and she frowned when she saw the look on his face. â€śWhat happened?â€ť She asked.
â€śIt was Ievis.â€ť
â€śIs he okay?â€ť
â€śYes and no. Heâ€™s not physically hurt, just emotionally. Apparently some girl turned him down because he wasnâ€™t wolf enough for her. He was sitting outside, alone, and upset.â€ť
Frona made a disgruntled noise â€śI cant stand elitist. He is a wolfâ€ť
â€śThats exactly what I told himâ€ť
â€śMy poor baby, at least we know why heâ€™s been a bit off now. Heâ€™s not going to chase after someone like that is he?â€ť
â€śNo but Iâ€™d love for him to let us call a wolf to him and have him show up that girl. I was relieved it wasnâ€™t anybody in my pack that made him feel this way.â€ť
â€śHe doesnâ€™t want that?â€ť
â€śNo but I told him thats always an option if he changes his mind. Sheâ€™s caused him to be critical when it comes to everything about himself and thats what upsets me the most.â€ť
â€śwhat else did he say?â€ť
â€śthat he hated how pretty his wings are. He apparently only thinks he has any shot with his mate when he meets her if shes an elfâ€ť he crawled into bed with her but neither of them were sure they could get to sleep anytime soon. â€śwe just need to figure out how to lift his spirits and see all the good in himselfâ€ť Frona said and Alois sighed â€śyeah, I just dont know how to do it beyond telling him how amazing the pack thinks he is. I mean he can outwit anybody we know easilyâ€ť
â€śWhat about a competition or something?â€ť Frona suggested.
â€śI donâ€™t want to announce something like that and have him think weâ€™re pitying him.â€ť
â€śWe could say itâ€™s because we want to add a third Beta. He wouldnâ€™t think anything of it, heâ€™d think it was just about pack safety. We could ask that everyone competes and maybe get him to participate.â€ť
â€śWe could try, he needs something to help him get out of his own head.â€ť
â€śI bet if he saw how quickly he can outwit the others, heâ€™d understand how amazing he is. Maybe heâ€™d let us call his wolf after.â€ť
He pulled her into him and pressed a kiss to her lips. â€śYouâ€™re such a good mom, weâ€™ll give it a shot.â€ť
â€śWe have to make it a big thing.â€ť
He chuckled. â€śWe will.â€ť
Now that they had a plan they were able to drift to sleep, only waking when Lillian came to wake them for breakfast â€śwait until you see what we made todayâ€ť Frona smiled â€śYou two have been watching cooking shows again havenâ€™t you?â€ť
â€śYes and we were really inspired!â€ť
â€śalright, tell Debbie weâ€™re comingâ€ť
â€śshe just left to take Jared someâ€ť Now it was Alois who grinned as Lillian ran out the room. He sleepily said to his wife â€śI wonder if she realizes yet heâ€™s her mateâ€ť
â€śI donâ€™t think so but its sweet the way she always takes him food. Our girls are sweethearts in general but youâ€™d think sheâ€™d notice her increased desire to take care of himâ€ť
â€śItâ€™s all for the best, sheâ€™s too young to be with him right now given his age. Iâ€™m thankful heâ€™s respected my wishâ€™s so far not to tell her or flirt with her until sheâ€™s eighteenâ€¦I know how hard that must be. I couldnâ€™t imagine having to wait with you after I met you. That pull is so strongâ€ť
Debbie knocked on Jarods door â€śJarod?â€ť She was about to just leave it when he finally answered with a sleepy smile â€śOh we got up too early todayâ€ť Debbie said apologetically â€śno, youâ€™re fine, thank you so muchâ€ť
â€śI can just start leaving it here without knockingâ€ť
â€śNo, No donâ€™t do that. Something could come take it if you leave it hereâ€ť she giggled â€śI dont think thats a big concern since the pack lives hereâ€ť
â€śPlease, continue to knock. Itâ€™s nice seeing a friend to start my dayâ€ť
â€śOkayâ€ť she held out his food and he gently took it â€śwhat is it today? This is such a big containerâ€ť
â€śLillian and I went a little crazy. Just be surprised when you open itâ€ť
â€śIâ€™ll be by a little later to return some dishâ€™sâ€ť
â€śalright, Iâ€™ll tell my dadâ€ť Debbie had soon joined her family at the table and enjoyed breakfast with them. â€śThis is now officially the best breakfast you two have madeâ€ť Ievas said and Frona agreed â€śyeah, thank you so much for always cookingâ€ť
â€śSo, your mother and I were talking last night.â€ť Alois said as they ate and Ievis paused for a second, his heart giving a little stutter. He was sure his dad had said something to his mother.
â€śAbout what?â€ť Debbie asked.
â€śAbout holding a competition to promote another wolf to Beta. The pack has grown a bit and we think it would be smart to have another out there helping keep things in check.â€ť
â€śDo you think Jarod will compete?â€ť Debbie asked excitedly.
â€śI hope everyone does, itâ€™ll be a good bonding experience for the pack. Plus, itâ€™s fun, maybe weâ€™ll have a fake competition for the pups.â€ť
â€śTheyâ€™d love that.â€ť Frona said. â€śThey want to be so much like the adults, itâ€™ll be cute.â€ť
â€śThat sounds like fun, doesnâ€™t it Ievis?â€ť Lillian said.
â€śYou have to compete too.â€ť
â€śIâ€¦I donâ€™t know about that.â€ť
â€śCome on, please?â€ť
He couldnâ€™t say no to his sisters so he relented â€śOkay, I guess it could be funâ€ť
â€śyayâ€ť his sisters said in unison. Both Alois and Frona were glad this was going to work. They both saw so many strengths in their son. They knew this competition would help him see what made him amazing and show him things that would make his mate admire him when he found her. After breakfast Alois left his family home to talk to his betas and arrange the competition. The sooner the better, heâ€™d want it starting right now if that were possible but his wolves had their own lives so it would require some planning.
He didnâ€™t even quite know yet what the competitions would be but he knew his Betas would provide help with that. Ievis began helping his mother clean up while the girls ran happily out the door. Since they always went through the work of cooking they seldom had anything to do with cleaning things up but they were respectful of the fact others would be cleaning up the mess. Debbie and Lillian were always rinsing things off and wiping spills while they cooked. It was never a massive job for Frona or whomever else took the responsibility of cleaning up after breakfast.
â€śDo you think I should compete mom?â€ť Ievis asked. â€śI mean, some of those guys and even the women are a lot stronger than I am.â€ť
â€śYou know what your dad would say?â€ť
â€śStrength isnâ€™t everything. A wolf needs cunning too, he needs brains.â€ť
Ievis sighed. â€śDid dad tell you what happened?â€ť
â€śHe did, but that was then and this was now. Youâ€™re amazing, baby, and no matter what anyone says, you always will be.â€ť
Ievis nodded. â€śI know itâ€™s weird to be so upset and I guess, at least she wasnâ€™t my mate or anything. That would have really sucked.â€ť
â€śMaybe sheâ€™s just jealous you have so much more going for you, looks and brains wise.â€ť Frona teased.
â€śCome on mom.â€ť He said with a little laugh.
â€śThatâ€™s better, I donâ€™t like when any of my babies are upset.â€ť
â€śI justâ€¦â€ť he sighed â€śIâ€™ve always been so excited at the thought of meeting my mate and us having what you and dad have along with what the other wolves have here who have found their mate. I mean even Jarod seems so happy around Debbie and dad wont let them be more than friends yet. I mean he cant even tell her and its crazy how happy he seems when theyâ€™re together. It just terrified me when I was rejected,that maybe I wouldnâ€™t be good enough for whomever Iâ€™m meant for. I know its rare but I know sometimes when we find our mates it doesnâ€™t work outâ€ť
â€śYou havenâ€™t met her so thereâ€™s no need to worry about that now anyway son. We can deal with that when she comes into your life and who knows, maybe itâ€™ll be easy. Maybe youâ€™ll even end up her hero like your father was mineâ€ť
â€śyeahâ€¦I canâ€™t believe that wolf was really going to force you into being with him.â€ť
â€śThankfully your father came into my life before I was twenty one. The universe has a way of bringing mates together though and itâ€™s often good with itâ€™s timingâ€ť The morning of the competitions came the following weekend and it wasnâ€™t surprising most the wolves in their pack wanted to compete. Most the ones who werenâ€™t competing were handling the kids one they were doing to make them feel included.
The pups were adorably excited and horsing around while they waited for things to start up. They were still waiting for a few wolves. Jarod was sitting with Debbie as always, talking to her while he could before this all began but the pack was so loud and excited right now Frona couldnâ€™t hear what they were saying to one another.
â€śEverything okay mom?â€ť Ievis asked as he joined her.
â€śJust Jarod and your sister.â€ť She nodded towards them. â€śWhat do you think theyâ€™re talking about.â€ť
â€śI donâ€™t know, but they look happy. You can tell he wants to say something, but heâ€™s trying to respect Debbie, you, and dad.â€ť
â€śHeâ€™s a good guy.â€ť
Aloisâ€™s howl sounded over the noise and all the wolves fell silent, even the pups. â€śNow that we are all here, first, I would like to thank you for coming to participate. I know many of you have families, but it warms me to see the entire pack gathered. Our Betaâ€™s have worked hard to help put this event together, so letâ€™s thank them.â€ť Everyone howled loudly and the Betaâ€™s looked proud at the acknowledgement. â€śAnd remember, this is a friendly competition, and no matter who wins, we will respect each other.â€ť The wolves whooped their approval and Alois smiled. â€śAlright, now, as a Beta you will have many responsibilities. You are the front line, you help keep the pack in order, you lead when I cannot, and you set an example for the younger generation. This competition is to test your physical and mental prowess. Thatâ€™s why the first thing we will be doing, is wrestling.â€ť
â€śWrestling?â€ť Ievis said and Frona reach over and rubbed his back.
â€śYour dad has taught you a lot. Remember, itâ€™s not all about size and strength. Use your head, baby, and remember even though you canâ€™t shift, you still have a wolfâ€™s reflexes.â€ť
Ievis nodded and took a breath, trying to pull in the confidence he had before that girl shot him down. He reminded himself of what was important. He was good enough for his family and the members of this pack. Today should be about nothing but fun and bonding with them. When it was his turn to face the current champion Ievis had already pumped himself up so the other wolf wouldnâ€™t sense any apprehension. It certainly helped this wolf was one of his friends and they had play wrestled all the time through middle school.
â€śweâ€™re just two friends playing aroundâ€ť he told himself a few times before they began. Ievis actually started to have fun and swelled with pride when he won. He looked over at his father and blushed for doing such a childlike thing, looking for his dad to make sure he had seen his accomplishment. Alois smiled at him and soon the next wolf was ready to face Ievis.
â€śI donâ€™t think he realizes just how amazing he is.â€ť Alois said, a big grin on his face. â€śLook at him. Heâ€™s playing it smart and using their eagerness against them.â€ť
â€śI really hope this helps boost his confidence.â€ť
â€śIt will, youâ€™ll see. I donâ€™t even want him to say anything to that girl, I just want her to hear about it and realize how stupid she is.â€ť
Frona giggled. â€śDonâ€™t be mean, baby.â€ť
â€śI canâ€™t help it.â€ť
â€śI know, heâ€™s our little boy.â€ť
Ievis put down another wolf, his heart actually thumping in excitement at how well this was going. He grew a little nervous when Jarod came out next and he glanced at Debbie who was clapping and cheering both of them on. â€śDonâ€™t worry about your sister.â€ť Jarod said, pulling his attention back. â€śSheâ€™ll be happy either way.â€ť
Ievis knew he was right and took a deep breath. He nodded and Jarod moved. He was taken off guard by how fast he actually was and it took him a moment to react to being grappled by the bigger wolf. He knew the other wolves had not been going easy on him, he could tell how strong they were, but Jarod was on the same level as his father. He snapped out of his surprise and managed to plant his foot in Jarodâ€™s stomach and flip him over his head so he went rolling away. He pushed himself back to his feet as quickly as possible, knowing he had to keep his focus if he wanted to beat Jarod.
Jarod was grinning as he came back toward Ievis and soon the wolves were rolling with one another. Jarod managed to briefly pin then almost out Ievis but Ievis was so determined to prevail he eventually out maneuver Jarod though just barely. Ievis was definitely glad a man like this would be protecting his sister Debbie. Honestly, if this wasnâ€™t a clean fight he wasnâ€™t sure he could have beaten him. Alois could see how worn out Ievis was and called for a break. Debbie was already coming over to Jarod who smiled sweetly at her â€śIâ€™m alright Debbieâ€ť
With that assurance Debbie hugged her brother â€śIâ€™m so proud of you Ievisâ€ť
â€śThanks, I really need something to drink thoughâ€ť
â€śIâ€™ll get it with youâ€ť Frona said as she approached. Once he was seated and drinking Alois came over â€śYouâ€™re really impressing the pack today sonâ€ť
â€śI can barely believe myself. Jarod was definitely the hardest to beat so farâ€ť
â€śMaybe you should try wrestling me next.â€ť Alois said and laughed when his son looked slightly horrified.
â€śNo way, youâ€™d put me down instantly.â€ť
â€śWell yeah, if I couldnâ€™t put other wolves on the ground then I wouldnâ€™t be alpha.â€ť
â€śHave you wrestled Jarod?â€ť
â€śYes, it was a lot of fun.â€ť
â€śHeâ€™s built like, I donâ€™t know, a mountain or something and heâ€™s so fast.â€ť
â€śAnd you wonder why I approve of him being your sisterâ€™s mate.â€ť He said, lowering his voice. â€śThereâ€™s not a soul that would dare lay a hand on her and if they did, theyâ€™d be dead and Iâ€™d be helping hide a body.â€ť
Ievis smiled. â€śYeah, me too.â€ť
â€śNo plotting boys.â€ť Frona said in a amused tone.
â€śNot plotting my love, just preparing.â€ť Alois replied as he leaned over and kissed her.
It was nice to see her son smiling and looking genuinely happy as he sat there with his father. When the wrestling resumed Ievis didnâ€™t take down all the wolves but he got through an impressive amount of them given his young age. Jarod didnâ€™t join in on any of the following competitions that day, preferring to follow Debbie over to where the children were competing. The next thing Alois had set up was something to test their sense of smell since there may come times he would need them to help him track someone or something.
He had his current betas bury three articles of clothing and then sent all his wolves to find them. Regardless of the fact his son couldnâ€™t shift this too showed he had every bit of wolf in him the others did. He actually brought back two leaving only Yuna able to bring back something besides him. During the rest that followed Alois said â€śand you let some girl make you think you werenâ€™t a wolf. Youâ€™re amazing, anybody would know youâ€™re my son with how skilled you areâ€¦you knowâ€¦you might become my new betaâ€ť
â€śI couldnt out wrestle everybody andâ€¦Iâ€™m only seventeenâ€ť
â€śIf it had been just about wrestling I would have stopped it at that Ievis and youâ€™re old enough being youâ€™re proving yourself right nowâ€ť
â€śHow do you think the pack would feel?â€ť
â€śHappy for you, youâ€™re not even a year off from being a man anyway sonâ€ť
â€śItâ€™s justâ€¦â€ť he sighed, not really knowing how to put his feelings into words. He never wanted the pack to be disappointed with him and what if they decided he wasnâ€™t good enough afterwards.
â€śYou know, itâ€™s actually normal for children to become betas in their parents pack.â€ť
â€śYeah, of course. Itâ€™s also normal for the pack to be passed down from parent to child.â€ť
Ievis looked at his father in surprise. â€śAre you sayâ€¦â€ť
Alois shrugged. â€śItâ€™s just something to think about. Someday, I might decide I want to retire as alpha or I might do this forever. Who knows?â€ť
Frona couldnâ€™t help but smile at the look on her sonâ€™s face. She could see the wheels turning, see the determination slowly building. With everything that had happened, with not being able to shift, he hadnâ€™t even thought of being a potential alpha. Now, he was seeing the possibilities. â€śDonâ€™t let any girl tell you what you can or canâ€™t be.â€ť Frona said as she rubbed his back. â€śLook at how happy everyone is. Theyâ€™re proud of you, weâ€™re proud of you.â€ť
He hugged his mother then his father, feeling blessed to have them as parents â€śIâ€™ll never let anybody else make me feel like she didâ€ť
â€śwhen its the right girl I donâ€™t want it to break your heart either if she says no. It hurt every time your mom said no but I would have never given up. You never know whats going on in their lives or what theyâ€™ve been through, like what I found out about your motherâ€ť
â€śand if sheâ€™s not a wolf sometimes we can come on a little too strong. If sheâ€™s not just do your best to take things slow. You canâ€™t just spring on her right away that you just know youâ€™re going to spend eternity togetherâ€ť
â€śI think it might have scared me if your dad would have said that right away given what I was already going through with a wolfâ€ť his mother threw in. Ievis nodded â€śThanks mom and dad for the adviceâ€ť
â€śwe want you to be happyâ€ť his mom said and his father added â€śand itâ€™s sweet your so caught up on finding your mate. Iâ€™m glad youâ€™re a romantic like me. When I saw your momâ€¦it just felt amazingâ€ť Frona smiled and soon they were ready for the final event Alois and the betas put together.
â€śSometimes, as wolves, we may find ourselves at a disadvantage. Sometimes our noses are useless, sometimes our sight is taken from us. For this, we must rely on our instincts, more so, our wolfâ€™s instincts.â€ť Alois said and he gestured for those who were still competing to approach him. His current betas came to stand next to him. They were holding blindfolds in their hands and one handed Alois a small jar. â€śThis final game is one of instinct and to make sure there is no cheating, myself and your current betas will be with you to observe.â€ť His smile was mischievous. â€śYou will be blindfolded to take away your eyes and we will rub this on your nose to take away your sense of smell. Weâ€™re going to take you out to the middle of the woods and you must find your way back on instinct alone.â€ť
â€śWhat about our ears?â€ť Yuna asked.
â€śEars are a tricky thing when you can neither see nor smell. Every sound is louder, it puts you on edge, so thatâ€™s why youâ€™ll be keeping it.â€ť
Ievis actually felt excited, he was going to prove himself and be his fathers beta. He could barely wait a moment longer when they all finally stopped and his father said â€śNow find your way homeâ€ť Frona was eagerly waiting about where they should come out of the woods with Lillian, Debbie and Jarod sitting with her. They werenâ€™t surprised when Ievis came out first â€śIevis!â€ť The twin girls shouted happily and he ran toward them, almost knocking the girls over. He managed to steady them and Debbie took off his blindfold “You did it”He turned to see his father smiling proudly right behind him â€śI think the entire pack would agree you deserve to be the newest betaâ€ť The wolves around howled among many other excited noises and Ievis had to use all his willpower not to cry.
Alois allowed his son to clean off his nose then asked â€śdoes your heart still ache because you canâ€™t shift?â€ť
â€śNot like it was butâ€¦if youâ€™d still be willing to call a wolf to me I really want thatâ€ť
Alois rested his hands on his sonâ€™s shoulders. â€śIâ€™m so glad youâ€™ve finally come around and I have never been prouder.â€ť He turned to the pack. â€śIn two nights, under the full moon, weâ€™re going to be calling my sonâ€™s wolf.â€ť He announced. â€śI say we make it a big celebration.â€ť
Ievis was happy that night as his family settled into bed and he laid there looking up at the ceiling, excited that he had actually been given the title of beta. He was still wrapping his head around it, that something so amazing had actually happened to him. He fell asleep with a smile on his face.
Alois went and talked to his father the next day, letting him know about Ievisâ€™s accomplishment and asking him to be the one to draw the symbols on him. Fate was more than willing and when he arrived the day of the full moon, he and Ivah embraced their grandson and congratulated him on his new title. â€śIâ€™ll make you all something to eat, if you want to get started on marking him.â€ť Frona said once she had hugged her in laws.
â€śThank you, Frona, I appreciate it.â€ť Fate said warmly.
â€śWeâ€™ll help.â€ť Debbie said.
â€śYeah, itâ€™ll go faster that way.â€ť Lillian added.
â€śThank you girls.â€ť
â€śLetâ€™s get started Ievis.â€ť Fate said then kissed his wife. â€śAnd you go and relax, okay my love?â€ť
â€śIâ€™ll try.â€ť Ivah said and Fate gave her a look, causing her to let out a little laugh . â€śGo, Iâ€™ll be good.â€ť
Fate soon had all his focus on his grandson Ievis â€śYouâ€™re going to love being able to shiftâ€ť
â€śI canâ€™t waitâ€ť Ievis could see how proud his grandfather was of him and it felt amazing, the whole night did. He had such a supportive, fun pack. The wolf that came to him was a mixture of grey and white and honestly, Ievis was glad it looked so plain. He didnâ€™t hate how beautiful his wings were any longer but it would be nice to have some part of himself that was more normal, that wouldnâ€™t stand out quite so much. Even without his wings out his hair was such a vibrant purple and his eyes were such a light shade of purple it always caught peoples attention. He had a nice, normal wolf within him now and that, combined with the love he so obviously had from his pack and family made him feel like nothing could ever tear him down again.
~ The End
