Chapter 4: Revenge of a King

The rest of the group was hiding in the bushes just outside the pack borders when they heard Humphrey's terrible scream. The worst part was the fact that they couldn't do anything about it.

Back in the den, one of King's henchwolves entered the cave.

"Sir," he said.

King looked up with a furious look on his face.

"I thought I asked for complete privacy!"

"Sorry sir," the lobo said. "But there are several lobos approaching through the trees."

"Ahh!" King growled in frustration. The lobo quickly left the cave so as to avoid his master's fury.

King looked down at Humphrey, finally relieving the pressure on his wound. Humphrey gasped for breath as the excruciating pain finally stopped. King noticed his relief and smiled.

"Oh, don't worry, " he said. "I'm not done with you."

"Why are tu doing this?" Humphrey asked him.

"It's like I said. I'm getting back at tu and your pack for everything you've done. First, I'm going to destroy your home, and then I'm going to make tu watch as I kill your family, one por one. And then tu and your brat pup, Runt, will die."

King grabbed Humphrey por the back of his neck and harshly dragged him out of the den. Once they were outside, Humphrey saw the Rouge pack gathered around the guarida, den as King dragged him to the cliff where Garth first learned to howl.

King pulled Humphrey to the edge and addressed Kate and the rest of the pack down in the valley below.

"Everybody!" he shouted into the valley.

The pack below looked up and were horrified to see their weak and injured friend precariously laying on the edge of the cliff.

"Oh no," Kate said.

"In case tu haven't heard, I am King, the leader of the Rouge Wolves," King said. "Your omega friend, here," here, he once again put a paw on Humphrey's wound and pressed down, resulting in a heart-wrenching scream from the wounded warrior.

"Is my prisoner, and my bargaining chip. I request only one thing. I want your youngest pup, the one that's caused my pack so much trouble, o else," he pressed deeper into Humphrey's wound, but this time, he pushed adelante, hacia adelante a little bit, causing Humphrey to mover towards the edge of the cliff.

"This one goes over the side."

"No!" Kate shouted.

"Then give me what I want and he can go free," King said. "If not, then he'll be falling to his death."

King dicho one last thing and these last four words were the worst they had ever heard.

"You have one hour!"
