Hello everyone!

Thank you for taking the time to read my story!

This is my first one and I'm really inexperienced.

Please read and leave a HARSH review! (Don't hold back, I'm trying to get better at this..)

Enjoy!


Chapter 1 - A glitch in the matrix


? POV

*beep* *beep* *beep* *beep* *beep* The strange machine buzzed.

I looked at the glowing screen on the machine. "Oh no.." I thought.

"FATE module - Status: MALFUNCTIONING"

When Fate Itself Fails

2 hours later...

Humphrey POV

Life couldn't be better.

As I sat there watching the sunrise with my new mate Kate, my mind flashed back to our recent adventure, which made us realize that we were madly in love with each other.

I looked at Kate's deep amber eyes. I just couldn't stop myself from just staring at her beauty.

"Humphrey~" She said in that beautiful voice of hers.

She came forward and nuzzled my cheek. I gladly returned the favor.

We both sat there, enjoying each other's company.

Suddenly, weird things started to happen. The world around me, with the exception of Kate, started distorting in weird ways. Everything started losing its color.

"HUMPHREY HELP! Whats happeni..." Kate dropped to the floor, unconscious.

"KATE!" I shouted.

I blacked out.


2 Hours later...

I woke up with a mighty headache.

"Ughhh... Where am I?" I groaned.

Immediately, I saw a sight that sent chills up my spine.

"KATE!" I shouted, hoping that the unconscious body of my mate would wake up.

"Ughhh... my head hurts..." said Kate as she got up from her slumber.

My mind breathed a huge sigh of relief, knowing that she was alright.

I ran towards her and hugged her.

After recovering from the initial shock, she returned the hug.

"Where are we?" I asked

"I.. well.. this looks like our pack... But it feels.. different. Somehow."

"I agree with you there. Something's.. off."


Something was, indeed, off. Unknown to them, they were somehow transported to the day before Kate was to leave for alpha school.


"Kate! Come on, Its time to go back to the den!" A familiar voice shouted.

"Dad? What do you mean by that?" Kate asked Winston.

"Come on, your mom is getting worried."

"Haha, nice one dad. You do know I live with Humphrey now, right?"

"What do you mean? Kate, you just had a sleepover yesterday. Besides, you've gotta prepare for alpha school. Come on now, Kate. Perhaps you should say good-bye to your friend over there."

That's when it clicked in my mind.

"Wait, dad, you don..." I interrupted Kate.

"Humphrey? What the.."

"Wait, wait wait wait, I think I've figured out what's going on Kate"

"What?"

"Don't you get it, Kate? This is the day before the day you left for alpha school!"

Kate gasped. Her jaw dropped open.

"I know it sounds crazy, but think about it! It all makes perfect sense..."

Kate was shocked. Her dad called her again. "You know, it's getting pretty late out here!"

"Kate" I said. "Look, this may sound weird, but we need to just play along for the time being. Go with your parents now, will you?"

Kate still looked dazed, but seemed to understand. "Well, this is still hard to believe, but okay..."

"You know what, Kate, meet me at the old hangout den tomorrow. We'll figure it out. We only have one day to. Okay?" I said, hugging her soft, luscious fur.

Man, I'm going to miss cuddling with her tonight. But hey, we have to get to the bottom of whatever is going on around here.

"Bye Kate."

"Bye, Humphrey."


And that's it! Sorry for the short chapter. I just can't seem to think of any new ideas. Hope you enjoyed my story. Please consider leaving a review.

Quick Update:

1st view! Wooooooooooo!

I've posted this update mainly to correct an error that occurred when I decided to change the story name during post-production. It's not "MALFUNCTION" anymore, it is now "When Fate Itself Fails."

Also, quick apology for the short chapter. Next one will be at least 1000 words long.

Thank you to all who took the trouble to check out my first chapter.
