"You want me to do what!?" Anders yelled at his mother who refused to look at him.
"You're being sent to track down your brothers and bring them back here to fight."
"You can't be serious can you? Du actually expected me to agree to this?"
"It doesn't matter whether Du agree oder not," Humphrey said, "The council has made their decision, Du have no choice oder say in the matter."
Anders paused and looked at both of them. "You can't be serious." He repeated while looking for any change in his parents hoping that it was only a terrible joke. After a Minute of silence Anders finally sat down in astonishment.
"Anders......This is our only hope of getting the valley back..........We have no other choice."
Anders ignored his father's reasoning and continued to look at the ground in disbelief. He shook his head and began to walk the other way.
"This is unbelievable. After what they've done, after they abandoned the pack?"
"Can Du think of any other way to end this war?" Kate snapped.
Anders stopped dead in his tracks. He knew there wasn't much hope that the pack would be able to go up against the northern and southern Wölfe combined power. Not wanting to accept the fact, Anders began running tactics through his mind. All of them seemed to fall apart even before they started and he soon gave up. He slowly closed his eyes, sighed deeply, and slowly turned to his parents with his head hung in defeat.
"Alright...I'll do it."
"What!?" a soft scream sagte as he sagte this. Anders and his parents turned towards the noise all knowing who it was.
"Faith?" Called Anders.
Faith hesitantly emerged from her hiding place and walked over to Anders with a sad look on her face.
"What are Du doing here?"
"I was coming here to see how Du and your parents were doing...but then I heard Du yell so...I hid."
"So? Du heard everything?"
Faith nodded unable to look into Anders' eyes.
"What's wrong though?" asked Anders not knowing he would regret asking.
"Oh he's a goner now." Whispered Humphrey while Kate smiled and nudged him to be quiet.
"What's wrong? WHAT'S WRONG!?" Faith began to stomp vorwärts-, nach vorn to Anders while he stepped back with every word that she said. "You're leaving to place unknown and you're asking me what's wrong!?"
"I......I don't understand Faith...I mean I leave all the time."
"That's not the same thing Du idiot! You're going to places that might get Du killed, and Du expect me to just sit here and wait?"
"Well uh....erm..yes?" Anders sagte struggling to see the point of her anger. Faith tackled him like a train hitting a tiny sports car.
"YOU THICK HEADED ALPHA!" She yelled as they landed on the ground, "How can Du not understand? I don't want Du to leave me! I don't want Du to get hurt somewhere where I can't help you!" She began to cry and loosen her grip. "I don't want Du to die! I Liebe Du ANDERS!"
Faith cried into Anders' chest, and Anders was stunned at the amount of emotion and pain she was in. He wrapped his paws around her as she continued to cry.
"Please...Please don't leave me Anders."
Anders was conflicted. He looked at his parents for at least a little sign of guidance, but all their faces held was confliction as well.
"Faith...Anders...... um," Humphrey started as he walked over to the two, "He...He has to go Faith."
When Faith heard this she got up in an attack stance and growled at him. She was just about to attack when something stopped her. "He's right Faith."
"There's no other way Faith. If I don't we may lose Mehr if they come after us."
"I Liebe Du too Faith... That's why I have to do this. We need to take back the valley so we will be able to live safe, sicher and happy lives. There is no other choice. I have to do this. So if I promise to come back... Will Du wait for me?"
"Are Du sure Du can keep that promise?"
He rubbed his nose with hers, "I'm sure I can keep this one."
Faith sighed deeply and rubbed her nose with Anders'. "Oh Anders, I Liebe you."
"I Liebe Du too Faith."
Humphrey moved closely to Kate and snuggled with her. "Looks like our little wolf is growing up..." Humphrey sagte to his mate who was looking happily at the two lovers.
"Yeah...do Du think it was the right thing to do to send him out there?"
"Come on Kate, this is Anders we're talking about. He'll bring them Home safely." Humphrey sagte as he nuzzled Kate.
"I Liebe Du Humphrey."
"I Liebe Du too Kate.
