A/N: Now for a little zaidi drama, oh boy.
April 6th 2009
Humphrey's age: 11 Months
I was exploring the pack territory on my own, which is what I would do when I want to clear my thoughts. I was old enough now that I could wander outside without having my parents to watch me. Over the times I have explored I have found the territory was quite hilly and mountainous in some areas. There was a small valley that was in the middle which was where the main pango area was located. I also met a lot of other Mbwa mwitu loups that lived in the pack, I was good at making Marafiki and the one I would hang the most with was Paul. He was a tan mbwa mwitu with brown eyes and we would just hang out together and wander the territory together.
I decided that I had enough of exploring for the siku and headed back home. My dad had zaidi days off now which I sure enjoyed as well as my mother. I walked down into the valley and saw some commotion between the pack. As I got closer I could hear what they were saying.
"I can't believe this happened" a mbwa mwitu alisema as I passed by
"Yes and what's even zaidi shocking is who did it" Another said
"I say we avenge his death!" One said
"I agree" A mbwa mwitu said
I wasn't really wondering what exactly happened since my parents would know. When I got to the pango there was the smell of death in the air. I walked into the pango and saw blood on the floor and walls, it was also quite dim in the den. I saw a shadow songesha at the back of the pango and I approached it, when I got closer it found it to be a grey wolf.
"Mom?" I asked
The mbwa mwitu turned around and I realized that it wasn't my mother "Ah I knew wewe would onyesha up sooner au later." It said
"Who are wewe and why is there blood?" I asked
"The names Blake and I have completed my plan" Blake said
"What plan?" I said
"Well I'm not your average mbwa mwitu Humphrey, wewe see I always wanted to be a leader but no one would ever see me as one. So I came up with this perfect plan to kill the leader of this pack and frame your parents for it, which will make me the new leader. And now that the pack knows that your parents had done it, they told me to avenge the leader death kwa killing them both." He said
I just sat there not believing what I was hearing
"The plan worked and I am now the leader, so fare well and enjoy being an orphan." He alisema before leaving me alone in the den
I couldn't believe what he had said, I had never known that there was evil in this world. I saw my dead parents lying inayofuata to each other with blood seeping out of their necks. I was filled with great anger because of what had happened, but it was replaced with total sadness. I began to cry onto my mother's fur, manyoya but I soon stopped when I heard a cough come from her.
"Mom?" I asked still crying
At first I thought I was imagining things but I then saw that her eyes were slightly opened, she looked very weak.
"Yes Humphrey I'm still here, but not for long." She alisema in a whisper
I began to cry even zaidi but she stopped me
"Now listen Humphrey, I want wewe to leave here and this pack, it is not salama with that manic to be around here. I want wewe to head south of here and keep going until wewe reach the western pack. They are a peaceful pack and they will take wewe in and wewe can live there." She said
"But mom I want wewe to live" I said
"I'm sorry Humphrey but I can't, please promise me that wewe will stay strong and head to the western pack right now." She said
"I will" I alisema with eyes full of tears
"Good, stay strong and I upendo you, goodbye" She said
Her eyes closed for the last time and I was left with silence
"I upendo wewe too" I said
I gave her a kiss on the cheek before walking out of the pango with my head hung low and still crying. I headed south, ignored every mbwa mwitu who tried to stop me saying I could get kill out there alone, but I knew that I would be safe. The sun would be setting soon so I kept a quick pace, the whole time I was walking I was deep in thought as well as crying. I kept wanting to turn around and kill Blake for what he had done but I stopped myself every time since I knew that I would be impossible for me to do so. I crossed the northern border into the western pack and I kept my eye out for and patrols to come by. But it was getting late and the sun had just set. I knew that I wouldn't make it to the packs center kwa the time night fully came in. I found a dead mti that had a small space underneath its roots big enough for me to crawl under. I got under it and cried myself to sleep.
A/N: Poor Humphrey, his life was going so good, but now it's been ripped apart. Theres a reason this happened and it plays an important role later in the story. To be honest I thought that the whole reason of his parents being killed was lacking a few things, what do wewe think? R&R
