I knew I heard something a few
seconds ago, but I can not figure out what it is. I
am on my way walking home from my friends house, of
course it is a dark as it can be, because the moon
is not out. Half way to my house, I heard something,
it sounded like a twig breaking underneath a foot,
but I do not know for sure. "Who
is there?" I asked to the stranger that made the noise. "Is
that you Nick, because if it is you, you acting like
a dumb ass" I said to the person that I hoped was Nick,
my friend. No one said anything, and I did not hear
"This is so dumb," I said to myself, "it could have
been a cat or something" So I just kept on walking.
I still had three blocks to go, and on the street that
I was on, the street light had burned out. So I picked
up the pace a little. Then out of no where I heard
some cat hiss. After that, I knew something was there
and it was following me. A cat just does not hiss at
nothing for no reason, unless they were afraid of that
"Alright, who ever is out there, I will Kung-Fu your
ass if you try and hurt me" I said even though I had
not had a single Kung-fu lesson in my life. The next
thing I knew, I saw something dash out of the garbage
I jumped out of fright, and fell to the ground to
because it was a natural reaction. I turned my head
to the street, and I saw the cat that must of hissed
run away into the yard across the street.
"Man, am I dumb" I told myself.
So I started to walk again, but I wanted to get to
my house quicker. I looked up and down the street,
and of course, no one was there, it was too late
at night. I started to shift into my wolf form, and
it only took me a minute to get fully formed. I wanted
to get to my house quick, and this was the quickest
way. I dashed to the end of the street in no time,
and when I got to the end I saw a bunch of bushes,
and dashed into them. I don't know what I was doing,
but I wanted to see who was following me, and if
anyone was following me. Luckily, from here, I could
see out into the street, and they could not see me
looking on them.
I laid my head down on my paws, waiting for the person
to come. In a minute, I saw a man come down the street,
dressed in black. He went to the end of the street,
and bent down and took a look at the pavement. And
he turned his head down the street, that I was going
to go down, but instead I turned into the bushes. The
man pulled out a gun form his jacket, and placed bullets
into the gun, and then went down the street that I
was going to go down to get to my house.
When he was gone down the street,
I started to go out of the bushes., but then thought, "That man was
following me, and when he caught up to me, he would
have killed me!" I went straight back into the bushes.
to wait awhile longer to make sure he was gone.
At the end of the street where the man with the gun
just left, another man came. This one was dressed in
a cloak that was dark red, but still blended into the
night. He put his head up to the air and sniffed, and
then he started to go the way the man with the gun
did, but he turned around just after he past the bushes.
I was in.
He came up to the bushes. and
said "Don't worry young
cub, I won't hurt ya, I came here to protect you from
At first I was not going to
get out, but then I thought it was better that I
go out on my own, instead of him dragging me out.
So I walked out of the bushes., and looked up at
the man. He was older than me, maybe by 10 years.
Then the man said "Ya mind turning into a
human again, I feel weird talk to a wolf."
I turned back into a human,
because I did not want to make this guy angry. Who
knows if he has a gun too. When I fully changed back
into a human I asked, "Who
are you, and what do you want of me?"
He waited awhile, and then told
me this, "Young cub,
I am your Watcher. I am a werewolf who has fully developed,
and like you I was once a cub. But that was a long
time ago. I came here to help you. You saw that man
that was following you? He is called a Hunter. He was
born to kill us werewolves, and he was out for you
tonight. I was out watching you to make sure you were
not going to get killed tonight. I got a little caught
up by your friends house, because his dad came out
and started yelling at me to get off his property.
It was smart of you to run into the bushes., the Hunters
are smart, but they don't have the sense of smell we
do, so that is how I found you. You see, I am you protector,
making sure you make it to your full development. Every
young cub has a Watcher, so that we make sure our race
survives." When he was finished he looked down my street
and said "Come, the Hunter has left, it is safe for
He started walking, and I followed him until we reached
our house. I got up onto the stairway, and turned around
to say good bye, but he had already left. But I knew
he was still there, watching me, making sure I was
