[Mr. Sampson]

I'm expecting my brother, Shane to be here any minute. I called Shane because I need help finding the alpha. I hear a knock on the door and there he was. "it's about goddamn time, Shane." I say with agitation. We head down to my garage and pull out the maps. "we don't even know where to start looking, plus we have no idea how to find him." shane said. "no, but Ryan McCall can, and I know where to find him." 

"yeah, so do I." he said grabbing a gun. "SHANE!" he said as Shane left the garage in a rush.

I drop off Josh at his house and he gives me a quick peck on the cheek and I watch as he walked into his house. As we drove away, Dylan woke up. "we found the alpha. He tried to kill us too so don't feel bad." Danny said sarcastically. "we need to go talk to someone, I don't know if he'll talk, but we need him." Dylan said. He told us to go to the mental health clinic and Danny went in to see if he was there. My phone rang shortly after. "dude, there isn't anyone here." he screamed. "what!?" Dylan yelled. "Ryan, we need to get in there. Danny get out of there! My uncle is there. He's the alpha!!!" he said jumping out of the jeep.  Following Dylan into the building, my head starts to hurt. "he's here." I whisper. Dylan and I walk around the corner towards the room. "AAAAHH!!"  hear Danny screech. We run towards him and find him underneath Dylan's uncle, Chad. "uncle Chad. Dont hurt him, he's not involved." he turns to face us both. "oh... There is my favorite nephew, and my newest beta, Ryan." he said with a smile. He stood up and walked over to us. Danny got up and scrambled to the jeep. "why did you kill Laura!?" dylan yelled. "it was a mistake. Let me show you." he said. My mind was soon invaded with memories that weren't mine. I have learned that Dylan's family has been burned alive; including his parents and other children. "don't you see? All of the people I have killed are directly responsible." he said calmly. I looked at Dylan as his uncle disappeared. "why didn't you tell me?" I asked. "it's not your business!" he screamed flashing his fangs at me. "I'm sorry." I said looking at the floor. I went outside with Danny and Josh. "where's Dylan?" asked Josh. "he needs a minute."I said. 

"I'm going to tell Mr. Sampson that we found the Alpha." Danny said. He peeled out of the parking lot and quickly vanished. 

*********

Danny rushed up to Mr. Sampson's house and banged o the door. He answered. "Mr. Sampson, I'm Danny. I'm a friend of Josh's and we found the alpha!"

"wait, back up. You found the alpha?"

"yeah! It's Dylan robinson's uncle." dang said. "where's Josh now?"

"with Ryan. Don't worry, he will protect him 'till he dies." 

"it's not Ryan I'm worried about. Get in!" he says pointing to the suburban. They both climb in and Mr. Sampson started the engine.

Episode 4: 

[James Sampson]

"I love you so much." I said walking with Josh. He held my hand and he was just so warm. I finally feel happy. We walked for a while, then I heard an engine come up from behind us. A white car pulled up and out stepped a man. "RYAN!!!" I see Dylan run towards Josh and I. I watched in horror as the man pulled the trigger on Dylan. "nice work josh, you found the second beta." he said. "uncle Shane!?" he gasped. He hit me across the face and pointed a gun at me. I laid on the ground in horror as he aimed it at me. Tires screech as Mr. Sampson stepped out of his truck along with Danny. "put the gun down, Shane." he said. I look at him in confusion. "he's 18, I can do whatever I want."

"no! You can't. Look what your doing. Your pointing a gun at an 18 year old boy; no proof he spilled human blood."

"I know what you did." he added. "there were children in that house. now, put the gun down." Mr. Sampson said pointing a gun of his own at his brother. "or I'll put you down." he finished. We all heard a crash and I jumped up. We saw a door swinging by the side of the building. "the alpha." I said changing myself. Dylan healed himself and got up to back me up. I felt a hand on my shoulder; it was Josh. We saw something flash out of the doorway and it took down Mr. Sampson with relative ease. He then took down Dylan, then me, and finally Josh. "come on!!!! I'll go all night!" Shane yelled. It grabbed a hold of him and pulled him into the building. I saw Josh follow it. I climb to my feet; Dylan did too, and we walked into the building and there he stood. We saw him slice Shane's throat, killing him instantly. He took a step towards Josh and I rushed in. Dylan followed. I stood between him and Josh. "Run!" I say. He quickly exited the building and I changed into my wolf form and lunged at him along with Dylan. He grabbed us in mid air and threw us against the wall. I hit the stud in the wall and fell. "Ugh..." I groan as I get back up. I let out a roar and charge him again. I take a swipe and cut his face. Our eyes meet and he transforms into the beast. He picked me up and threw me out of a window onto the ground. Mr. Sampson ran and grabbed Josh. I climb to my feet and watch as the beast charges me. Mr Sampson shoots it in the head and Dylan tackles it as it starts to heal. He turned back into a human and Dylan raised his claws. "wait! If you kill him, I'm dead! Mr. Sampson will kill me! What am I supposed to do?!" he swipes his throat anyways; killing him. And killing me. I collapse onto the ground as josh rushes to my side. I turn my head; not allowing him to see me as a wolf. I feel his hand on my chin and he turns my head. He kisses me lightly and I change back into my human form. "why did you do that?"

He paused a few seconds.

"because I love you."

I kiss him once again and look at Dylan. He turns his head and his eyes are red. "I'm the alpha now..."

*************

"so what does this mean? Your my boss now?" I ask as I walk beside him in the forest. "no, it just means I'm the alpha." he said. We hear screaming coming from over the hill so we decide to investigate. We find another werewolf, an omega, or "lone wolf" hanging by his hands. I could tell who was standing there. "Mr. Sampson." I whisper. "now now, let's not keep this going any more than it needs to be." an older fellow said. He pulled out a big sword and looked menacingly at the omega. "we have a code, dad."

"not when they murder my son, we don't." he said swinging the sword at the Wolf's mid-section. He led out a bloodcurdling scream, and was soon dead. "we have to stop them." I said getting up. Dylan restrained me. "you see what they do? This is why you need to stay with me!"

"what are they doing?"

"Declaring war." he answered. "let's get out of here." he said holding on to me. I reluctantly follow him. 

************

I woke up to the sound of my radio. "...the search continues for alleged murderer Chad Robinson for the events at the school..." my mom rushed in and turned off the radio. "maybe we should switch that to buzzer." she said. "you alive in there?"

"no."

"you wanna go to school today?"

"no." I said with an expressionless face.

"wanna new car?" she asked. I look at her surprisingly. 

"so would I." she said with a smile. "you sure you wanna go to school today?" 

"yeah, I'll be fine." I said getting out of bed. I got out of my clothes as she left the room and changed into a pair of Hanes boxer briefs, blue stone-washed jeans, a green tee-shirt and a red sweatshirt. I check my calendar "no full moon tonight." I said with happiness. I grab my backpack and head out the front door. I walk around the back of the shed and see that my bike chain is broken. I look for any clues as to who may have done it, but all i see is an insignia in the shape of a triangle. I sigh an angered sigh and walk down the street towards school. I see a car pull up shortly after and it's Josh. I smile as he invites me into the car. "hey, why don't we skip school today?" he said. I look at him surprised. "I've never skipped school! What if someone--" he interrupts me wit a kiss. "we can go back to my house." he said. "I'm gonna chill and pound on the drums in my basement."

"did you say... Drums?" I said with excitement.

"yeah."

I ran back into my house; checked if anyone was home, and grabbed my blood red Les Paul vintage guitar and Marshall amplifier. I jumped down the stairs and ran out to his car. A smile crossed his face and out of the pure excitement, we were already there. We ran into his house and down to the basement. Down there sat a beautiful 15 piece Tama drumset with Zildjian cymbals. He hopped on them and started playing. "we should record a song." he said with a smile. "well I..."

"I'll call a few people over, we're going to rock." he really didn't give me a choice in the matter, but that's ok, I liked the idea. Within a few minutes, his friends Alex, and Will showed up. Alex was a guitarist and Will played the bass. They started playing a familiar song that I listen to all the time. It was "Nothing Else Matters" By Metallica. I started with the opening solo and finally Josh joined in on the drums just as I started singing.

"So close no matter how far 

Couldn't be much more from the heart 

Forever trust in who we are 

And nothing else matters 

Never opened myself this way 

Life is ours, we live it our way 

All these words I don't just say 

And nothing else matters 

Trust I seek and I find in you 

Every day for us something new 

Open mind for a different view 

And nothing else matters 

Never cared for what they do 

Never cared for what they know 

But I know 

So close no matter how far 

Couldn't be much more from the heart 

Forever trusting who we are 

And nothing else matters 

Never cared for what they do 

Never cared for what they know 

But I know 

I never opened myself this way 

Life is ours, we live it our way 

All these words I don't just say 

And nothing else matters 

Trust I seek and I find in you 

Every day for us something new 

Open mind for a different view 

And nothing else matters 

Never cared for what they say 

Never cared for games they play 

Never cared for what they do 

Never cared for what they know 

And I know (yeah!) 

So close no matter how far 

Couldn't be much more from the heart 

Forever trust in who we are 

No nothing else matters

"That was fun!" I said to myself. "dude, you got a voice on ya!" will said. "should we do one at the talent show tomorrow?" alex asked. I grabbed my phone, it's a full moon tomorrow. "uh... When's the talent show?" I ask nervously. Josh knew what I was talking about. "I think its in the afternoon." Will said. "well, I'm in. Ryan, you want lead guitar and vocals?" Asked Alex. "uhh... Sure!" I said with a smile. "what song should we do?" I asked. "how bout.... "Cage the Beast" by Adelita's Way?" suggested Will. "fitting." I whispered. "what Ryan?" Alex noticed. "oh.. Just talking to myself." I said covering up my obvious nervousness. "well, then we should practice." Josh suggested. "1...2....1...2...3....4!!!"

**********

"from now on, these things are just bodies due to be cut in half." James said to his son. "we have a CODE, dad!" Mr. Sampson said annoyed. "with a creature that dangerous, you don't capture it. You kill it." he said holding up a knife. "every last one." he finished. Mr. Sampson cant even contemplate the thought of killing Ryan. He was like a son to him, even if he was a werewolf. And on top of that, he is Josh's world! He will do whatever he has to do  to protect Ryan from his father.
