Abrihet had a simple puphood , spending most of her time eating , relaxing and sleeping . Unlike other pups , she prefers to watch from aside rather than roughhouse . But that doesn't stop her from joining the other cubs to annoy the elders for stories . Abrihet also enjoys sniffing flowers and snuggling in a pile of fallen leaves she piled up together .
One cold day in Winter , Abrihet caught a cold . She was shivering uncontrollably and refuses to eat for two days . Worried , her mother brought her to her aunt , the shaman . Well , actually her mother dragged Abri with she whining all the way as she was scared , it was her first time seeing the shaman afterall . But upon entering the den , the smell of herbs instantly wash over her . Curious , she took a peek from behind her mother and met a pair of bright emerald eyes . The aura around her was comforting and surprisingly warm , Abrihet immediately latched onto her .
After that day , Abrihet has been spending most of her time with her aunt . Unconsiously , she learned the basics of healing and the names of the herbs .
Just like every pup that reach 2 moons of age , Abrihet was able to chose what she wanted to be . Without hestitation , she immediately chose to follow her aunt's pawsteps, to be a shaman . The existence of life always fascinated her and she believes everything happens for a reason . In other words , the reason to live . She thinks every living thing should be cherished and appreciated , so that they could have a peaceful passing at the end of their life . Abrihet always looked up to her aunt and she wanted to help the injured too . But unlike other ranks , being a shaman comes with a lot of responsibility . Determined , Abrihet sets goals to push herself so that she could achieve the rank someday .
" Abrihet ... "
It's the dream again . I thought to myself as I gazed up to the moon . It is shining as brightly as always in the starless night . I couldn't move , but I wouldn't move even if I can . Oh , the beautiful moon . Under it's light , I could feel myself floating . I feel .... giddy . It was like the moonlight is seeping into my fur throughtout my body , taking my breath away . Closng my eyes , I savoured the moment .
I couldn't breathe ! I instinctively try to draw a deep breath , but I can't . An intense wave of fear washed over me as my body shook uncontrollably . Help ! Someone ! My eyes shot open , just in time to see the moon bleed crimson red .
" Abrihet ! "
I jolted awake , my eyes wide open . I took in a few ragged breaths , trying to calm my heart which is beating a hundred miles a minute . My breathing slowed down not long after , but my heart is still beating fast . What was that ? The dream ... the moon never bled red . " It's nothing .... It's nothing .... Nothing but just a nightmare ... " I repeated it over and over , reasurring myself .
..... Or was it ?
