The battle

(Firenze) I awoke from Shadowwalker’s powers to find two bodies lying before me. I examined them closely to find Whitewynd and Fireblast dead. They had been killed by a lightning strike, Thunderbark to be exact. “No!!!” I snarled leaping up and racing over to Stormlock’s den. My first official day as beta and two pack members, and best friends, were gone. They were my personal friends, the one’s I always turned to for help. They were gone now, becoming the earth, prey, wind, water. This was personal. I got to Stormlock’s den and he wasn’t there. Hastily I dashed through the forest following his scent. I got to a clearing and saw Stormlock and Blackspark, fighting against Silenthowl, Thunderbark and Earthworm. Shadowwalker was already lying dead at the edge of the forest. I could feel fury raging through me, like an adrenaline rush, but stronger, almost controlling my entire being. “Thunderbark!!” I screeched, fire enveloping my paws and trailing up to my body. I crashed into the startled yellow and black wolf, knocking him off his paws and sending him flailing into Earthworm and Silenthowl. Thunderbark wailed in pain as fire burned him. Stormlock took his chance and leapt on Silenthowl, followed by Blackspark, who grappled with Earthworm. The fury was overwhelming me, kill Thunderbark! It said. A got a grip on Thunderbark with my teeth and rattled him back and forth. Then I did something that I regretted. While under the control of the fury, I snapped his spine, using my teeth. Thunderbark suddenly looked small, like the day we found him huddled up under a tree. “Firenze? You killed me?” Then suddenly he was lying limp in my mouth. I dropped him, feeling extremely disgusted by myself. Then Earthworm howled. His howl rattled the earth, creating a huge fissure in the clearing. A small sound ripped into my being. “Firenze,” Stormlock whispered. Silenthowl was standing a few feet away, a smug smile on his face. Stormlock’s back legs were broken. I lunged after him just as he was sliding into the fissure. Urgently I gripped his scruff ready to drag him out. “No, Firenze.”His eyes pleaded with me. “Let me die. I will be no use for you crippled like this. Let me go. Please, I will be with Wyndbain.” I tilted my head. “Really you want to die?” “Yes,” he answered. “Will, you tell Wyndbain that I was sorry? Tell him I miss him?” Then I let go of my Alpha and saw him fall into the earth below. I twisted around and grabbed Silenthowl, flinging her into the fissure. Then I raced over to Blackspark who was standing over Earthworm. “I’m sorry, he is dead.” I walked away from the battle, with Blackspark. We walked away from everything, running ourselves for a long time, until we collapsed on the ground, three days later.

Firenze, Nkari is always there for you and blackspark, but watch out, we have an evil alpha, Firebrook. Stay out of her tail, and maybe you could become the Underleaders with Blackthunder.

So Firenze dont feel lost, it's fate.
