Here we are again. I went over what I already posted today, and got rid of the few things I noticed were wrong.
Wasn’t too much, though, so I may have missed some things.
Mark, you said you wouldn’t mind proofreading (I also found the answer to the question), so mind if I mail you with the parts before they’re posted?
DWei, you also seemed to express some interest in proofreading. If you wouldn’t mind, drop your email address in a (separate) comment below, and I’ll mail the parts to you along with Mark. Would be great!
Someone also pointed out that this may or may not be a little bit furry. To clarify, that was not my intention, and never will be. We won’t be seeing much half-transformations, so it should be safe.
The wolf had disappeared. All that was left was a kid.
‘You alright there?’ the boy asked him. ‘Any feelings of rage left?’ He hung the necklace around the kid’s neck after he fixed the string.
The kid sniffed. ‘I killed him… didn’t I?’
‘That wasn’t you. That was something inside of you, but not you.’ He helped the kid back on his legs. ‘What’s your name, how old are you?’
‘Okay, and what’s your name?’
The boy sighed. ‘Well then, how about, uhm, Fang? Yeah, Fang is a cool name for you! How do you like it?’
‘Good! You can call me Scout.’ He started walking. ‘Come on now, follow me.’
Fang remained silent, obediently following Scout. Who was this guy, and why did he come to help him? But more importantly, what in the world happened back there?
‘Scout?’ Fang uttered. ‘What was that back there?’
They stopped walking, Scout looked at Fang. ‘Nothing you have to worry about for now.’ He patted Fang on the head. ‘There’s lots of people like you, and they’re doing just dandy. Just look at me, as healthy as ever!’
Fang looked up with wondering eyes.
‘I can also change into an animal, but I won’t scare you and the people around with that.’ Short silence, they started walking again. ‘You must also be wondering where we’re going. I’m taking you to the guild’s headquarters. How does that sound for a new home?’
A small smile appeared on the little boy’s face. ‘Home.’
This concludes Chapter 0.
Thoughts so far? Speculations?
And let me know if you also want to proofread!
EDIT: No, just because my internet nickname appears in this doesn’t mean it’s an autobiography or anything along those lines. That kid is NOT me!
