*This is my first draft and should I continue?*
Please excuse any mistakes.
A women cradled a small baby in her arms. The baby's name was Devi. She had pale skin, light strawberry blonde hair, and bright blue eyes. Devi's mom had blonde hair and she also had blue eyes. Her name was Channery. She looked out of the window. Their house was on the outskirts of town. A dangerous forest surrounded half of the town like a C. Her husband was supposed to be home by now. It was getting late…and dark. Channery gulped.
Hopefully he is fine…I can't take care of Devi and her brothers by myself.
She turned away from the window and sat down.
Channery turned towards the voice. It was her eldest son, Ellis. He had the same black hair as his father and he had the same brown eyes. Ellis was in 5th grade. She frowned.
"Where the hell were you?"
He gulped. "In the forest."
Then Channery crossed her arms. "Why didn't you tell me?"
Ellis looked down at the ground. "I'm sorry. It didn't cross my mind-but I have bad news."
Her eyebrows rose. "What is it?"
Ellis gulped and looked up at his mother. "Dad is dead. The wolves dragged him away."
Prologue(part 2), six years later. Devi's POV.
I looked around. My brother Clove was smiling at me and holding my hand.
"So how was your 50th day of 1st grade?," He asked me.
I grinned. "Good!"
"Do you want to go somewhere cool?"
"Yes!," I exclaimed without thinking out it.
We took a path to the woods.
I gulped and looked up at him.
"Didn't mommy say that the forest was bad?"
I frowned because I could've sworn that mommy had told us to stay away from it. I just shrugged and we stepped into the woods. My brother and I walked through the woods. Then I heard some leaves behind us move.
"What was that?" I whispered. I was really scared and I squeezed his hand.
I frowned at him. "It is something. Nothing is something. Don't lie."
He sighed and shrugged. "I don't know."
Then the bushes all around us shook. I hugged my brother tightly.
"I'm scared. The forest is bad!"
Something-or things moved out from behind the bushes and I screamed. There were wolves. They had dark brown fur and menacing black eyes. I started to cry. The wolves were surrounding and circling us. The only thing that could save us…wait, there was nothing that could save us.
"Climb the tree." Clove whispered to me.
I quickly looked around. There was a tree right next to me. The hungry wolves were getting closer.
"What about you?" I asked with tears streaming down my pale face. "I don't want you to die! There isn't room for both of us on the tree."
He frowned and kissed me. "Go!"
One of the wolves lunged at my brother. I had no choice. I had to climb the tree. I started to climb up the tree. Once I got to the top, I looked down. The wolves had my brother. Blood was coming from his mouth.
"CLOVE! DON'T DIE!"
"STAY STRONG DEVI!"
Then he didn't say anything. The wolves howled.
"Devi!" I looked up above me. My mom was riding a broomstick. "Hop on!"
I quickly got on to the broomstick and we flew towards town-but the wolves were right below us. I cried on my mom's shoulder.
"He is dead…" I whispered while wiping the tears away. She started to go down on the broomstick and I got off.
"I'll be right back."
She got off of the broom too and headed towards the forest.
"Mommy!" I cried.
My mom turned around to face me.
"Please don't die!"
She sighed. "I'll do my best. Don't go past the stones."
Then my mom pulled something out of her pocket. It was a red stick. The wolves were a few inches away from the stones that protected the city. She crossed the stone and chanted something. A light came out of the stick-then it stopped all of a sudden. I heard her gulp. Then the wolves lunged at her…and dragged her away.
"MOMMY! DON'T LEAVE ME!" I yelled and I stepped towards the stones. My mom was still looking back at me.
"DON'T COME AFTER ME DEVI! I FORBID IT!"
A few seconds later, she was gone- just like Clove. I cried. Then someone started to rub my back. I looked over my shoulder. It was Ellis, his girlfriend, and my two other brothers(Bradley and Flare).
"They took her away…" I sobbed.
After that day, I knew that everything wasn't going to be ok-but I would get revenge on the pack of wolves. They killed my dad, mom, and my favorite brother.
