ELINA I look at my mother with my mouth open in surprise and shock , because the day I have been waiting for years has finally arrived, the King, Colin Vark, has died, and with him dies the last of the people directly responsible for the death of my real parents, and the destruction of what was our magnificent kingdom, and not only that , along with him also died the royal guard of whom I have always suspected of having been the one who gave the final blow to my mother when I was still in her womb; they both died in battle , according to my mother, Serene, the woman who, although she did not bring me into the world, has dedicated her life so that mine is not completely miserable, as the late king wanted it to be. “ A surprise attack by a group of Rogues that intercepted them a few miles before entering our territory, ” my father , Alistair, informs me when he notices the curiosity sipping out me, it was he who also taught me what the Rogues were , and warned me of the dangers of wandering through the forest for the possibility of meeting one of them, and been attacked or killed in a second without them be able to save me. "Have you met any rogues, dad?" I question with a curious stare. "No, but you must be very careful with them Ellie, most of the Rogues that live close to our territory are ancient warriors loyal to the overthrown king ... sorry , I meant, loyal to your late grandfather, king Balder, those who fled in the middle of the war to save their own skin are the ones who became rogues," He warned me. "Why? they weren't exiled and there was no kingdom left, so why did they become rogues?" I asked. "Leaving your pack behind is something that in itself already goes against what a pack represents, you know, we eat together, we fight together, and we die together, they did not respect these basic principles, and that is why today they have been reduced to those unpredictable and violent beings that represent a great danger to our kingdom, and especially to you, you know very well that they consider you the greatest of traitors for still living with the Vark's," He said in a concerned tone. " But why am I considered a traitor if I was just a newborn baby when it was decided that I should live here amongst the Vark's subjects, why should they blame me for that? I did not take part in that decision," I answered, completely confused by it. " Because they believe that as soon as you were old enough to run away, you should have, you should have joined them against the Vark's, and since you didn't, you are considered a traitor amongst them, at least that is what the last Rogue they caught said when she tried to get into the kingdom along with others of their kind,” he explained to me calmly, as he has always explained to me the things that I can't quite understand, the way a loving father would. “Great, so I am an outcast here for staying in this kingdom despite being a Bloodmoon, even if I didn't have a say in the matter, and I am also a traitor for not leaving? Nothing seems to please those people, what do they want from me?” I said grumpily, and my father came over to give me a bear hug that I liked so much because they were really comforting, and they made me question why he was an omega if he was not only the biggest and strongest of all the warriors in our little pack, even more than our alpha Roger, he was also one of the largest wolves in the entire kingdom. However, it would only take one person a couple of minutes with him to know his tender, generous, and selfless personality to realize that his heart is as big as his torso. And even with that sweet personality of him, his size is already a great deterrent to anyone who even dares to think about going against him or someone in our family, and if his size alone is not enough to persuade others, the fact that he has two sons almost as big as him will make anyone think twice before messing with us, even if my older brothers are as much or softer than my father is. The impetuous and rebellious personality of our family has always belonged exclusively to me, I have always been the one to question every rule, to have problems with other people's authority, and with remaining silent, even more than my mother, who despite being more temperamental and determined than my father , she is still the kindest woman anyone could meet, and that is why for all my family it has been difficult to treat me coldly in front of the rest of the people. I know from the pain that crosses their face every time they have to treat me poorly in front of other people, that it hurts them more than it does me, because although I have tried to convince them that their attitude doesn't affect me at all, mainly because I know it is just a facade to protect me against the king's predatory eyes , they still think that they are hurting me in some way every time they have to feign indifference, or be rude to be in front of the members of other packs in our kingdom. At first, they also had to pretend they didn't care for me in front of our own pack members, but not only did our alpha , Roger, pick up on their lousy performance pretty quickly, he was adamant to let them know that there was no need to pretend they didn't love me in front of him or in front of the other members of our pack, which is the smallest in the kingdom, since he had always told us that we were all a great family that had to resist together the rudeness of the other larger packs. When they brought me to live here , the members of the pack saw it for what it was: a punishment and a burden for them, because they knew that no pack that had between its people the granddaughter of the overthrown king, was going to be taken seriously by the rest of the kingdom. And although at first, they tried to ignore me and treated me coldly, as I grew older and with the help of my parents , I was able to prove that I could be quite useful to the pack, and thus soon a great conspiracy was created to deceive not only the king, but the rest of the packs into believing that my life with them was simply daily torture for me, and in that way, I have been protected until the glorious day when that horrible being finally left the face of the earth, and I hope things can change for the better now that he's gone. And now, not only can my pack stop being so cold to me in public, because honestly no one but him cared how they treated me, but now I have a chance to prove that the Bloodmoon’s did not just disappear from this world in one night , and to be able to put high in history the name of my family once more; so from tomorrow onward I will begin to secretly train to compete in the next blood moon competition, a festival that started with my family and that the usurpers did not forgot, but happily continued every seven years. And next year, on my twenty-first birthday, which just coincides with the festival and is very close to the day of the competition, I will prove, once and for all, that they can never end my lineage no matter how much they have tried in the past. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
