Thump! Thump! the sound of the drums echoed through the forest, wolves howled in response, branches on treetops swayed from side to side. The moon Goddess smiled upon her children, sounds of paws pounding against the forest grounds from all sides reached the ears of Marcus, a smile formed its way to his lips. It was the full moon a much-awaited one. For centuries all packs gather together at such a time as this to determine which pack reigned supreme over the rest, the wolves feed off the light the moon provided it was like their personal drug, a source of the life force flowing within them. Loyalties were formed and alliances made, as everyone put aside their grievances to work together for the common good of their species.
