Kinda vent, but more with a story
I got several mood swings during the Christmas party and thought of this
In the snowy top mountains light flickers from the falling snow, a tribe of wolves dances and celebrates around fires. Their outfits made of skins and bone, they are celebrating a time of happiness, today is the day of coming of age for their pups. Adolescent wolves do the rituals of life and become adults. Parents and their young happily being together around the fires in their tribal garb. An old white wolf watches, his name is Don. He sits atop a rock with his mate the pack leader. He looks and sees something out of line, one of the pups is missing. He tells his mate and leaves to look for him.
He thinks to himself "Cobalt.... you were so looking forward to this day..... why are you not here?" He goes into a large pine forest, snow slowly drifts down in the nighttime forest, it covers the trees and the ground in a thin white sheet. As he continues on he hears something.... crying. He rushes to where the sound is coming from. He runs through the trees until he finds the source. The sight makes his heart sink.
A pup crying, he is the missing adolescent. His fur is black, blue and white, his paws cover his eyes as he cries. He sits at the edge of a large cliff overlooking a lake. Don steps forward,
"Cobalt?" He asks sympathetically
His ears perk, he sees Don
"Granddad...... my..... my heart has been broken again...." he continues crying
"Grandson...... it's no reason to miss the happiest day of your life" He makes a smile and goes closer to Cobalt
He continues crying,
"No, she broke my heart........ it is in shambles..... I have been hurt too many times....."
Don's ears fold back, he looks sad for the hurt pup,
"There will be one for you.... I promise"
"NO! Every time I try I DIE MORE INSIDE!" He looks angry and depressed,
"YOU HAVE GRANDMOM, DAD HAS MOM! I HAVE NO ONE AND NEVER WILL!" Cobalt gets up with his head staring at the grass at his feet, he takes a few steps to the cliff's edge
"I... I know you are my guardian angel......... but you can't stop my suffering...... my heart is hurt too much......" Cobalt looks down the cliff at the lake far below
"Cobalt..... your parents love you.... Milly, Zerith, Chard and Vocol love you.... I love you.... don't..."
He cries, he looks back.
"I don't want to grow up...... I want to die......... I'm sorry...."
He runs off the cliff as fast as he can, he feels the wind rushing through his fur as he drops to the water below. He felt this choice was the right one, he opens his eyes and sees the water, he crashes into the lake. His vision is blurred by the cold deep waters as he slowly sinks into the depths of darkness, he blacks out and expects death.
He coughs, he realizes he was rescue. He sees a large wolf with horns staring back at him.
