As I was walking through a clouded forest, a wolf passed in front of my steps. The wolf froze just as I did. Our eyes locked and in that very moment in time, I felt warmth. The wolf slowly started to walk away; our eyes still in sync. I could feel the air through my fingers and I could feel something beating in my lungs. It was a rush, it was a high.
After the wolf had left me standing for hours, hours being lost in thought, I carried myself to the nearest tree and slid down unto the damp earthy ground. My aching back leaning against the tree, I raised my head back and closed my eyes. My mind raced with images of what my life once was. A life I now barely knew.
Footsteps cracking crisp fall leaves awakened my eyes as I knew something was crawling it's way over to me. Rays of heat approaching closer, I clinched my arms around my legs in hope of freedom.
A stillness had filled the air and silence rang my ears. The wolf had returned.
I ripped the wolf's heart out... veins running down my arm, blood soaking my finger nails.
My eyes grew wide as the heart took it's last beat in my shaking hands. The heart was still as was my breathing. I closed my eyes and squeezed the heart until it was mush. I leaned down into the wolf's remains and whispered, "I will protect you. I will hold your heart forever".
I felt the heart slipping between my fingers. It was now cold and lifeless. Slicing the heart into pieces with my cat like nails, I began to eat it. Drinking in the juices I could feel my heart race.
I had done the impossible
I had found love
I could hold their heart
