Faelen tucked her hands into the soft fur muff and turned toward her little home. Behind her, the pack of wolves watched her departure with sorrowful eyes. The largest of the pack stood out before the others and Faelen looked down to him. Majestic and dark, his citrine eyes told her everything. The howl that slipped from his mouth was a sad, mournful wail, echoing through the stillness of the trees. The sound lingered even when he stopped, and the other wolves rustled and whimpered behind him.
“Oh, my love,” she said, her breath frosting in the winter’s cold. She had long ago surrendered her tears to the warmth of his fur as she wrapped her arms around him and cried. He had rested his head on her shoulder and growled softly. Faelen bent to stroke his head, and he whined and sat on his haunches.
She lingered a moment more, then turned and soundlessly left them. The witch’s curse had made her the very being who hunted his food sources and decimated his home with axes and saws. This human skin had rested upon her for so long she worried that she would never escape it; that she could never return to her Thorolf’s side as his beloved alpha mate.
The forest gave way to the little village as she walked, her hands warm in the fur that had once been her own.
