    (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....

    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.

    Chapter 2 approaching danger

    Eclipse lay in the snow, catching her breath after chasing down Snowflower. It was cold and windy and ice was sticking to her fur. She shivered and thought it to cold to hunt, but she needed food badly! This was the harshest winter in years and food was scarce. Eclipse's ribs were showing and her once luscious coat had become dull and started to fall out! So driven by hunger she sent off to find dinner. She began a steady trot towards the valley entrance. A place of danger because at the mouth of the valley was a native American settlement! AH HA, luck was with her today, out in the field was a horse! Eclipse saw that it was lame and may be an easy catch! She sunk to the ground, the darkness hiding her body. She began to crawl forward, seemingly gliding across the ground like a shadow! She came to a stop beneath a large pine tree with low hanging boughs. She waited..every muscle in her body poised to spring...the horse took a couple steps forward...this was it!! Eclipse leapt but the horse was quicker, it took a step back and Eclipse missed by inches. She hit the ground with a thud. She scrambled to her feet and turned on the horse sinking her teeth into it's upper leg. The horse bucked sending her into the air, the horse then delivered a second bone crushing kick. Eclipse was sent flying, smashing in to the same large pine tree. She hit the boughs and crashed to the ground. Her body throbbed with pain and her shoulder sported a jagged gash from the hoof ripping her flesh. Now she lay in a puddle of snow and blood and she was still hungry. Just as she blacked out from the pain she could voices coming her way.

    Chapter 3 survival

    The voices came closer, the sound of snow crunching got louder. Eclipse lay beneath the pine shivering with fear. The sun was beginning to rise and there was no way she could slink away with out being seen, even if she had the strength to walk. The footfall stopped. Then the human clicked its fingers, the horse hobbled forward. Eclipse jumped in her skin as the humans let out a shrill scream! The scream caused more humans to come running. One human, a wise man, came forward and declared the bite mark was caused by a wolf! The men began checking the area for the wolf. Eclipse watched as they began search, scouring under every bush and tree, she knew she need to get out of there. She tried her hardest to gather her legs beneath but burning pain shot through her chest. She collapsed in a heap panting, her eyes watering, trying hard to muffle her whines of agony. She faced the fact that she most likely would die, when the men found her hiding place. In fear, she closed her eyes and traveled back to the last spring she had had with her family...it was a beautiful meadow with lots of flowers. She was chasing her brothers and sisters in the soft gold glow of the morning sun. The mountains ahead appeared blue in the early dawn and a gentle breeze swept the grass into waves...then the tainted memories flooded her mind..... a gunshot and yelps, men laughing...she awoke with a growl, to a hand touching her head. She was no longer beneath the tree but in a dark cave on a bed of moss. She began growling at the human in fear, she had know idea where she was or she had gotten here.....
    The young girls voice was soft and gentle. Eclipse felt a longing for companionship, and the warm touch of girl, almost eased her. She shook herself out of it what was she thinking. 'This was a human, humans are bad.' Her mind raced.
