A/N: Hello fellow readers, I'm starting a new story due to the fact that I have ran out of ideas for my other ones. This is rated T due to the fact of romance and war, but may change to M when Lemons come in later chapters. I'm not sure how long this story will be but I'm sure that it will be longer then any of my other ones. This story will be set up with dates so for instance Humphrey was born in spring 2008 which means his death would be in the 年 of 2023 since 狼 live around 15 years. Let's get this story started! *cracks knuckles*
October 11th 2023
Humphrey's Age: 15
Today was just like any other day, the sun was shining and I was just relaxing in my 巢穴, den, 书房 alone as usual. I got up and stretched hearing a few of my 识骨寻踪 crack due to my old age. I walked out of the 巢穴, den, 书房 and looked and the rising sun that had only risen and 小时 ago. I stared at the mountains that the sun had risen from and got 迷失 in my thoughts.
'I remember when Kate and I would watch the sunrise almost every day.' I thought to myself
An image of her tan face and hazel eyes came into my thoughts, she had a warm smile just like the 日 she passed.
"Oh how I remember that day" I 说 with a slight sadness
Flashback, March 30th 2022
That 日 was just like today, just an average 日 like any other. Kate and I were the oldest 狼 in the pack, at 14 years old, we out lived any other 狼 that was our same age. We lived 下一个 to the head Alphas 巢穴, den, 书房 since we were the parents of them. Kate and I we just have a lazy 日 with nothing else to do, we would tell stories and remember great memories that we had while we were young. It was a great 日 and it was one I truly enjoyed, but little did I know at the time l that it was her last. After having 晚餐 with our son and his family we headed to bed, cuddling up together like we always did. I had a great dream that night, but it was 更多 of a flashback since it was about the trip to Idaho and back, all those years ago. That trip has always stayed with me since it was when Kate fell in 爱情 with me and we ended up getting married a few days after we had returned. I slept with a smile on my face remembering all the ups and downs that trip had. From the howl on the train, to the 熊 attack and saving Kate from the flash flood, all of it held a special place in my mind.
When the 下一个 morning came I woke up before Kate did which was a rare occasion but it didn't raise my suspicions as to what actually happened. I went for a quick walk around the territory before returning 首页 and finding her still asleep. This was when my suspicion started to come in, I nudged her head a few times which usually would awake her but this time it didn't. I placed my paw on her shoulder and shocked her lightly a few times the find that it didn't work as well. I also noticed that she was quite cold, as if she was out in the snow for too long. Fearing the worst since she and I both knew that we were nearing the end of our lives, I went to get the pack nurse. Her name was. Kelly and she was somewhat related to me and was one hell of a good nurse who could cure and heal almost anything.
I brought her to my 巢穴, den, 书房 and had her check on Kate to see what exactly was happening to her. I nervously sat 下一个 to where Kate was laid down while I watched Kelly examine her. She had a look of doubt on her face while she checked her temperature and looked for any infections. At the back on my head I was fearing the worst since I knew that it must of been Kate's time to go. Kelly finally checked her pulse but she seemed to have trouble locating it. After a 分钟 sue figured it out and so did I. She has a look of sadness on her face when she looked at me.
"Humphrey I'm sorry, but it was Kate's time to go, she's gone." She 说 before exiting the 巢穴, den, 书房 leaving me alone with Kate.
My mind was blank, it was trying to take it all in but it just couldn't. I broke down crying into her fur, I could not hide the sadness that I was feeling. I looked at her face and saw she had a smile on her face, a warm smile. This cheered my up a little knowing that she was happy when she passed, and I knew that she would be waiting for me to soon 加入 her when my time came. It wasn't long until my son came into my 巢穴, den, 书房 to see his mother had passed. He broke down crying just like had when I first found out. I place my paw on his shoulder and he looked at me.
"It's okay son, she's in a better place now and she's happy." I said
"I just can't believe she's gone" He 说 with his eyes full of tears
"Me nether, but it was her time" I said
"Yes, she lived a great live" He said
"Yes she did, and she wouldn't want us to cry over her loss, she would want us to continue on, and remember she will always be watching over us." I said
"I'm really going to miss her, she was one of the best mothers a 狼 could ask for." He said
"And she was a great mate as well" I said
"But dad why aren't 你 crying?" He asked
"I did, but I soon stopped when I knew that she was happy when she passed and I remembered what she once told me." I said
"And what was that?" He asked
"Once 你 爱情 someone, they stay with 你 forever, in here" I 说 placing a paw over his heart
"Thanks dad, I needed that" He 说 giving me a Hug which I returned.
Back to Present
I was interrupted from my thoughts when I heard a 狼 walk up to my den. I turned my head to find my son, Tanner, with his son, Nova walking toward me.
"Hi grandpa!" Nova 说 excitedly while giving me a hug
Nova was about a 年 old and looked a lot like me, only he had Kate's Hazel eye's which reminded me of her every time I saw them.
"Hey Nova" I 说 smiling I then looked at my son "Hello son, what brings 你 here?"
"Hey dad and I came here to see if 你 didn't mind watching Nova today." He said
"I don't mind at all, but why though?" I asked
"Well Shade and I wanted to spend some time together alone since we really haven't had the time since Nova was born." He said
"Ah I see 你 want some 'alone' time" I 说 with a laugh
He laughed as well "No dad, Shade and I are good with one pup for now" He said
"Okay have fun then" I said
"Thanks dad, I owe 你 one" He 说 as he started leaving
"You always say that but 你 never make up for it" I 说 laughing
"Well, what can I say, I'm just like you." He 说 with a laugh before continuing on
I turned my attention back to Nova who was playing with a bug that was walking on the floor of my den.
I smiled "Hey Nova it looks like it's just me and 你 today, got anything 你 want to do?" I said
"Oh I don't know, what do 你 want to do?" He asked letting the bug fly out of the den
"Well how about a story?" I asked
"Ooo I always 爱情 you're stories" He said
"Okay have a seat, this is going to be a long one." I said
"Oh boy, what's it about?" He asked sitting across from me
"Well 你 know that 你 always asked what has happened in my life?" I said
"Yeah" He said
"Well I'll tell 你 my life story" I said
"Aw sweet, it's about time" He said
"Alright let's start from the beginning..." I said
A/N: How was it? I'm putting my all into this story because I want it to be one of the good ones on here, anyway this is the intro into the story with a brief history on Kate's death. Don't worry there will be a lot 更多 Kate once the real story starts in the 下一个 chapter. So for now R&R
