The Legend of Werewolves
Long, long ago, it is said that the god of all gods, Zeus, attended a dinner hosted by a Greek king, known as Lycaon, and his sons. While he was at dinner, Zeus became enraged with the king when he realized they had served him the remains of Lycaon's dead son, as a test to find out if Zeus’ omniscience was real. In Zeus' rage, he killed the remaining sons of Lycaon and then turned Lycaon into an immortal wolf, so he had to live with what he had done for all of eternity.
Selene, the goddess of the moon, who also had an affair with Zeus, took pity on Lycaon. She thought what Zeus had done was cruel, and his actions were a little absurd for what Lycaon had done. He was a silly mortal who only wanted to know the true potential of a god. Since it is said that wolves of the Earth worship the moon, she decided to turn him into the first werewolf. Although, he did not hold any powers, just that of immortality. Lycaon was trapped in his wolf form because he did not know how to control himself when he would shift back and forth between his wolf and human form, but he was still able to have thoughts and emotions like those of a human. He hated the curse of being a werewolf but was grateful that he wasn't dead like his poor sons.
Selene then pleaded to Zeus to allow their youngest daughter, Ersa, to watch over her newly created werewolf. Zeus hastily agreed to her plea, since he was still furious about what Lycaon had done. Selene then turned their own daughter into a werewolf, a true daughter of the moon. Ersa was known as the goddess of the morning dew and became the first female werewolf. While on Earth, she started to get close with Lycaon and was there for him while they both learned to master their new werewolf forms. As time went on, they eventually became mates, with the help and guidance of her mother, Selene, thus creating the first mates. They had 10 werewolf pups, which is where the descendants of werewolves come from, and every modern-day werewolf is a direct descendant of one of the 10 pups.
As the descendants of Ersa and Lycaon multiplied from procreating with the humans on Earth over the centuries, the immortality of werewolves started to long fade away. Werewolves also gained many enemies over time and in turn had to hide themselves from those around them, especially humans.
Lycaon and Ersa long disappeared. Some say Zeus finally took pity on them and brought them back to Mount Olympus, while others believed their immortality was finally stripped away from them after the humans started hunting werewolves.
Modern-day humans have no idea they even exist. Though werewolves aren't the only creatures that live amongst the humans.
Over the many centuries, there have been a number of weapons designed to end a werewolf’s immortality, such as Aconite, also known as wolfsbane, and the use of lethal doses of silver. Werewolves age slower than a typical human and they have the ability to live longer, but they are far from immortal nowadays.
But what if this wasn't the full story? What if there was another legend out there, about another kind of werewolf? A legend not known by many except for the Keepers and those directly involved. One particular Alpha has become obsessed with finding the truth and will stop at nothing to find it, including killing others to get the information he wants.
Follow along as the Legend unfolds and even a greater tale comes to life with this first book in the Rocky Falls Series.
Chapter 1- This Thing About Her
As I felt the sun peeking into my room through the curtains, I casually looked over at her lying in a perfect little ball, her beautiful sunny blonde hair was sprawled all over my pillow. She looks so peaceful and content lying there next to me. Soon, this will be her spot forever. I gently moved a stray hair from her face. As I did that, I accidentally let out a loud sigh. I push the small piece of doubt that I have about her and I being soul mates, down deep to the pits of nothingness and ignore it once more. Unfortunately, I have been feeling this way for a while now but have been ignoring the unnerving feeling since I have loved her for so long, it only made sense that we would end up together forever.
“Mmmm, good morning baby.” Renee smirks at me with her eyes closed. She then rolls over and gives me a kiss. She had stayed over last night after a house
