The sound of Heaven to me
Everyone thinks I hate my clarinet,
When really I miss that feeling so much,
Getting lost in the music,
Knowing the notes perfectly.
But it's my fault,
I didn't take it seriously,
I was the one who stopped it.
Every now and then though,
I take it's case out of the top of my closet,
Put it back together,
Put on a reed,
Open my book,
Get in concert position,
Place my fingers on their holes
And I play.
I play the warm ups that I remember,
The notes memorized,
A natural feeling of satisfaction.
And then I stop.
I remember always being last chair,
The worst Clarinet in the band,
The concentration I put into it,
Just to be the worst.
I sigh and remove the mouth piece,
Wanting to cry taking apart my Claire,
Cleaning it gently,
And then closing the case.
If Only I could play better.
But I left my Clarinet.
I left the fun of music
The thrill of learning notes.
My Band teacher told me I needed more practice.
I needed more concentration.
I tried, I really did.

Training the pups has never been so bad It was the time of year to take the pups out to train to hunt in winter, for in the Darkness Pack they trained the pups each season. For them to properly care for themselves they wanted to be sure they could hunt in any conditions. They were exploring the forest for food.
Athena had flown ahead and spotted a horse, she didn't like the spirit of hunting, but she would do anything for the pups. They marched through to the area, hoping they could end the horse's suffering. It looked as though it limped and was sick.
They needed food, the horse was weak, and they went for it. "We need three of you pups behind it if it tries to run off, you need to be back a little bit."
Charon pointed to three pups, "Peppermint, Avalanche, and Bewitched, if you need help, Apollo will be with you so just try to stick with him."
"Gaia, Thanatos, and Hedes, go by the lake. It should be frozen solid." Charon wanted to keep the adults by the more dangerous places, not wanting the babies to fall in.
