~*~*~*~*~*~

Somewhere over New Mexico

There's never been anyone else
I knew you before I knew myself
Oh my baby, I have always loved you

"You've reached Jamil, leave a message." Beep.

"Um Jamil, its Willow. I....feel really stupid calling you from the airplane....since I used magic to get it to work cause its like 20 bucks a minute. That's not the point though I just called to you know let you know that I'll be landing there in like a couple of hours....um...I don't know....I am still in love with you and I hope its not too late. If your like involved or something just ignore this message. Guess I'll try to call you again later, I mean your probably busy being skoll or something. Um....bye."

Years go by in a matter of days
And though we go our separate ways
I never stop dreaming of you
I have always loved you

St. Louis-Airport

I had hoped maybe he would be here. Maybe he didn't want me.....or maybe he hadn't gotten my message not that I told him anything about what airport or what time I would be landing or the gate for that matter but still I had hoped. I just had to call him again. All I needed to do now was find a telephone.

"You've reached Jamil, leave a message." Beep.

"It's me again, I landed.....I mean you know I'm at the St. Louis airport cause my plane landed. Of course you knew that I mean why else would I call to say I landed. I'm just going to get my bags and then go to the rental company and check in at the hotel. Its the Holiday Inn, outside the loop going west. Well that's what my reservation says, room number 202. Um...call me when you get in? Bye."

And when you call it makes me cry
We never made time for you and I
If I could live it all again
I'd never let it end, I'd still be with you

Its been 4 hrs since I got here and no Jamil. I'm starting to think maybe he's avoiding me but then again its the night of the Lupanar so maybe he's busy but I cant wait till tomorrow to talk to him. I have to do it now. I hope they don't mind visitors at this Lupanar thing. Full moon or not I have to see him even if it is to tell me to go back to the hellmouth. I owe him this much. I owe myself and gang this much.

~*~*~*~*~

Thronnos Rokke Clan-Lupanar

I wonder how long its going to take me to get to this place? I mean I've been driving for like 45 minutes and can you just say wilderness central. Who would have though places like this still existed in the US? And yay....cars...and ooh they are all parked, guess that means me too. Guess I follow the noise.

Willow followed the noise through the woods and stopped when's he came to edge of the clearing. Maybe she should have though through her dropping by unannounced, in fact she was sure of it. Seeing the sea of shifters she had to wade through to get to Jamil was daunting and maybe not her smartest idea since it was probably a secret meeting and she was intruding. She would have done just that except the wind chose that moment to shift directions and everything got really quiet as all the wolves turned as one to stare at Willow.

"Um....bye. Would you believe I'm lost and saw all the cars and decided to ask you all for directions but I can see your busy soooo....I'll just go." I was taking small steps back trying not to startle wild animals, that's what the look in their eyes told me. I was doing just fine until I backed up into a tree. The growling was not reassuring in the least. especially when the ones closest to me started shifting to full wolf form. It was like a chain reaction. One minute everyone was sort of human the next I was looking out at a sea of wolves the size of ponies.

"Guess, me just leaving isn't and option." I could see or make out 5 human forms towards the front of the assembly I knew 3 of them the other two were female. I just have to make it to Jamil and everything will be finely hope.

One way or the other I was reaching Jamil. "Could you please let me pass, I just need to talk to Jamil." Asking them to let me pass was like telling them please attack me because the next thing I knew balls of fur were flying at me. Well, when they put it that way, only one choice left. I dropped my shields and decided that Jamil better appreciate the show. My eyes I knew where black as midnight, my hair was flying around like an invisible wind was surrounding me. I raised my hand and it stopped the wolves in the air. I flung them aside with a wave of my hand and started walking forward.

Oh God, I miss you
I have always loved you
There's never been anyone else

~*~*~*~*~

I didn't know what to make of the human who had appeared at the Lupanar, maybe she was lost but it was a moot point now the pack had caught her scent and this close to shifting they weren't going to be dissuaded about eating her. I felt bad but what cold we do, even Richard and Anita were resigned to it. There's no way we could make it to her in time to a.) stop her from being killed and if by some chance we did b.) it would be too late to save her from being infected so either way she was doomed. So we just stood there and watched her start to back away, then the pack shifted to wolf form and we knew she was a goner. We weren't prepared for what happened next though. One minute Sylvie, Anita, Richard and Shang-Da are watching the first wolves charge at her and the next thing we see is the wolves stopping mid charge then being flung aside.

The human I guess wasn't quite so human after all. That would teach the pack to be choosy about who they decided to eat. However we weren't prepared to feel such power emanating from her, it was familiar somehow. She was no longer retreating, in fact she was moving forward. At a very steady pace. Wolves were being flung out of her way left and right. She was also attacking with I can only describe as some sort of energy balls. They appeared in her hands and she threw them at the wolves. It was scary to see one human with such power. Even Anita had her gun out ready to shoot her if she became a threat to Richard, Shang-Da, Sylvie and myself were standing in front of the throne blocking Richard from her view.

I knew you before I knew myself
Oh my baby, I have always loved you

~*~*~*~*~

There were a lot of wolves in this clan. I was barely half way to what I can only describe as the throne when I had to resort to flinging not only wolves but energy balls as well. I sure they would go chase something and leave me alone. Only one wolf had the right to get his claws into me. I don't think Jamil recognized who I was yet if the way they were all standing in front of Richard was any indication. I was almost to them when a very determined pack member got in my way. I wondered if this wolf was stupid to stand in front of knowing it was just going to get flung aside.

I wasn't prepared for its buddies to try to attack me from behind while I was distracted. Then again that is how normal wolves catch prey. I ducked and rolled out of the way barely missing those huge jaws and paws. I was tired of this shit I mean really. So I did the one thing I had promised never to do again. I called upon the darkness buried deep deep inside and let the electricity flow from my fingertips to the remaining wolves. It probably felt like sticking your hand in a really big electrical outlet. I finally turned to look at the five people looking at me. I wondered why Jamil still looked at me like a stranger. then I remembered that I was looking pretty scary, black eyes, my hair was black no doubt from my last trick and I had the sneaking suspicion that I was all vainy.

"Um....sorry about your wolves, Richard. I mean they were kinda trying to eat me and all. Most of them are fine just stunned by the way. The last few however I electrocuted so they will feel it even after they shift back, probably couple of days..weeks at the most." They were looking at me funny, I didn't this it had anything to do with my scary looks either.

"You know Richard?" Duh.

"Yes, and you must be Anne? I think."

"Anita." Huh, close enough. I was answering her questions but I had eyes only for Jamil. He wasn't wearing a shirt. I thought it was time to stop with the scary disguise Although I had done damage I think they knew I wasn't going to do any more. I started drawing my power into myself. I heard a gasp as my hair turned back to red. I was afraid to look up and see Jamil's reaction. My shields were all back into place when I looked up again. I saw Richard shaking his head, Anita trying to look for something in me and everyone else had surprised looks on their face. Except Jamil he was looking smug as the cat who ate the canary. At his smile I flung myself into his arms and kissed him senseless.

"Hi honey, I'm home...to stay forever and ever, if you still want me?" I was afraid maybe he was just smug about knowing who I was.

"How can you even ask such stupid question witch after your display, I cant help but make sure I become your keeper. Your dangerous and I love you even more for it." I kissed him again and decided introductions were in order.

"Hi, I'm Willow and sorry about the pyrotechnics, promise never to show up to my honeys job ever again."

"Actually Willow, I was wondering if you would like to become the packs Vargamor?" Richard was asking me to be come the packs vargamor. I was so happy I immediately said yes. Then I thought of something.

"What's a vargamor?"

Years go by in a matter of days
And though we go our separate ways
I never stop dreaming of you
I have always loved you

And they lived happily ever after, as the packs skoll and vargamor once a month and as Willow the computer programmer and Jamil the business consultant the rest of the time.
