(For those read this a couple years ago, when I first started, I am going to try again, most of the story will be the same. I suffered a horrible case of writers block and by the time I wrote the next chapter the thread was dead, so I'm gonna give it another go.) This is my story if you read please don't copy it! I have worked very hard on this story and am looking into publishing it! ENJOY!! Thanks. Chapter 1 Eclipse: The great moon rose high, casting its pale reflection on the river. The river this night was a raging, deadly torrent that snaked its way through a valley. The valley lay south of Granite peak and most nights was calm and quite. But tonight it erupted with chaos!! In the light of the moon a white wolf staggered into a clearing, her name was Snowflower. Seconds later a beautiful black wolf burst out of the trees, her name was Eclipse. Eclipse had finally caught up with the intruder and began to close in. Snowflower was out of options, the chase had taken its toll on her old body and she was no match for the young Eclipse. As Eclipse moved in the ill and starving Snowflower backed towards the river. Eclipse leapt, just as the earth beneath Snowflower gave out...the white wolf was lost to the river! Free of her intruder Eclipse set off to find food.... (the actual valley at Granite peak) Eclipse was nearly two years old, but she had been alone since she was only a year.... Her parents had been alphas of a large pack in the far east mountains, and life had been easy. She had grown up with a large litter and was always picked on for being the only black one. As she got older her father began teaching them to hunt but many hunts just turned into play time. Those good memories were forever tainted; fur hunters had killed her whole pack and while the first gunshots rang out, she ran! Some 100 miles later she reached the valley. And here at only one year old she began to learn to survive. When her 1st winter in the valley came she tried to join a pack over the mountains, but they rejected her, inflicting wounds and chasing her off. So alone in the valley she staved off hunger by hunting mice. As her 1st spring in the valley dawned she could hear the neighbor pack welcoming new pups.! Now more than ever Eclipse felt truly alone. And now as her 2nd winter begins she'd give anything to curl up with a mate.
