Wolf's Rain Fanfic
We walk hand in hand through Freeze City. I keep my senses alert in case of cops or the smell of wolves. If I smelt a wolf, I would alert Kiba, but all the wolves we saw were of another pack.
Near noon, we finally reach the farthest end of the city. My feet ate sore and my stomach growls but I keep searching for Kiba's pack.
All of a sudden, the scent of wolf clouds my nose. I immediately turn left and drag Kiba with me as I head towards the scent.
"What is it? Do you smell them?" Kiba breaks the long silence between us. I don't reply but just nod. As soon as the smell is stronger, I become a wolf and strode into the clearing, breaking away from Kiba's grip.
The wolf smells us and spins around. It was a small brown and tan wolf with silver bracelets on its right foreleg. Its amber eyes grow large when he sees me and Kiba.
"Toboe!" Kiba brushed past me and stands in front of the wolf. "I've been looking for you! "
"Kiba!" Toboe had a little boy voice. "Who's that? Is she coming to paradise with us?"
My ears prick up at that word. "Paradise? I thought that was just a myth!" I make my way to the two wolves.
That brings a smile to Toboe. "No. We searched for it. We were almost there, but-"
"Another wolf got in our way. We would have made it too. I was right at the entrance. "Kiba looks at me with lost eyes." I lost everybody in the process. Even Cheza. "
The name sounded familiar to me, but I didn't know how.
"Is that?" I break off when Toboe and Kiba nod.
"The flower maiden." Another voice sounds behind me.
I look over my shoulder at a blue- grey wolf with blue eyes and a fluffy light brown wolf with yellow eyes.
"Blue! Hige!" Kiba turns his whole body around to look at the newcomers. "All we need now is Tsume."
I turn myself around. My tail flicks to the side. "You must be part of Kiba's pack too, huh?"
The wolves nod. "I'm Blue. It's nice to meet you. "The blue- grey wolf dips her head in greeting.
The other wolf smiles as he introduces himself. "The name's Hige."
"It's nice to meet you both. My name's Akiela. "
Kiba lifts his nose and sniffs. "We have company."
We all turn around in time to see a gray wolf with a scar shaped like an X on his chest. His yellow eyes were narrowed as he leaps down from a small roof.
"I thought I smelled you." The wolf had a powerful strode to his walk. He looked like the alpha of a pack.
"Tsume. It's great to see you again. "Kiba huffs.
"Well, if we're all together, we should grab Cheza and go." Tsume turns his head towards me. "She a new wolf?"
Kiba glances at me then goes back to Tsume. "She needed my help. She was alone too. Her friend died a few days ago so I thought it would be good if she came with us. If Darcia were to attack again, she could help fight. "
Tsume grunts. "If she can even fight."
My lips curl up into a snarl as I growl. "You wanna bet?" I crouch down, ready to lunge at Tsume.
Before we could attack, Toboe jumps in-between us.
"Guys! We need to get along! We can't fight now!"
I lash my tail twice before I stand up straight. I growl one more time at Tsume. I had been ready to tear him apart for insulting me.
"Oh I can fight. We'll fight another time. "I shift my gaze away from the gray wolf to a tall building in the distance. " I believe-," I begin," the scent of lunar flowers comes from there. "
The wolves follow my gaze and nod. "That's where she was last time." Hige informs. "We should go soon. Remember what happened last time, Kiba?"
He releases a quick sigh. "Yes. Darcia reached her before us. This time, we will make the first move!" Kiba becomes human and starts off towards the keep.
I was about to ask who Darcia was, but every wolf had already taken off. I sigh to myself before I propel myself across the empty street.
I crawl out of the air duct and land beside Blue. I frown as I dust off my my cerulean top and denim short of debris.
"So who knows where she's being held?" I flip my hair over my shoulder before making my place between Kiba and Hige.
Hige doesn't reply. He just sniffs the air and leads the way through the cold hall. I don't follow until smelling the air.
The scent of lunar flowers was definitely coming from this building.
The others begin running after him. I race beside Toboe. On my other side, Tsume is running. I wanted to do badly to sink my teeth into his flesh, but this was definitely not the time to fight.
We all round a corner and stop at the beginning of a long corridor.
"Cheza's just behind that door!" Hige says as he stops to let us catch up. I look past him at the red wooden doors.
I take a deep breath and push past Hige. I strode slowly towards the door. I hear footsteps quickly pick up behind me. Suddenly an arm juts out in front of me, stopping me in my tracks. I look up into Kiba's gentle blue eyes.
"Wait, Akiela! We don't know who's in there!"
I huff, but decide to listen to him. "Well, what are we going to do then?"
Kiba looks off in thought. He glances over my shoulder and looks at Hige who shrugs.
Kiba sighs. "I don't know..." Kiba trails off. He rubs the back of his head and takes a long breath.
The corner of my lips curve up slightly.
I push Kiba to the side and grab the door handle. I lightly pull on the door out it doesn't budge. I growl as I pull harder but the door doesn't swing open.
As I keep pulling on the door, my feet begin to slowly slide across the floor. From behind, I hear a sigh before Kiba appears beside me. He puts his hand on the other door and gives it a shove. The door opens on silent hinges. I stare at Kiba dumbstruck before I enter the room, cursing under my breath.
The room was empty except for a lot of machines and lab equipment. At the far end of the room, was a large tank filled with a green liquid. A person appeared to be sleeping in the tank. A gasp escapes my lips when I get a better look at the person.
It was Cheza. The Flower Maiden.
