B is for the Belonging

I'm so full of ideas today.
Here's some background info for my next segment:
There was a powerful bracelet that has been passed down from generation to generation. Nobody knew what it did, but it was a burden for it keeper. Well, eventually is got lost along the way. There was a search for it. Now, a girl named Val finds it.

It was dark. The werewolves would be out tonight. I watched silently, waiting for them. I was sitting beside a large oak, where I usually sat. The bright moon didn't chase the dark away. They would be hear. Sure enough, I heard howls in the distance. I could almost feel the ground rumble as they ran towards the clearing, towards me. They reached me a few minutes later. Some of the older ones ran toward me. They were used to me. I saw my black wolf. He was walking toward me slowly. I watched him. The others tugged at me for attention. I patted them absently. As he walked closer, I saw him carrying something in his mouth. The others froze and watched as he dropped it in my hands. I studied the object. It was a bracelet. Old, but beautiful and power seemed to radiate from it.
"What is it?" I asked. I looked up. The wolves were no longer wolves. They were human. Including my wolf. They looked around, confused. I didn't understand what was happening.
"Where did you get this, Max?" The humans began to gather. There were about fifty of them, total. None of them spoke, as if they thought that if they stayed quiet long enough, they would turn back. Nothing happened.
"Max?" I asked softly. He looked at me. "Where did you get this? What is it?"
"Val," he said seriously. "They were going to kill us."
"What?" I was confused.
"That bracelet is The Bracelet. Without it in the right hands..." he trailed off. So I finished it for him.
"You want me to sacrifce myself? To take the burden?" He looked at me, startled.
"No, Val. I would never want that. I want to take it back. Where it belongs."
"Surely, you don't mean in the Belonging?"
"Sure I do. It's the only way."

I'll be honest and say that I haven't figured out what this bracelet does or even what/where the Belonging is. But I like the name. The Belonging. Please comment. Maybe even bring up an idea for what the bracelet does, what the Belonging is. This is another to-be-continued story.

  2. Wow what a cool idea. I wanna know about this thing! Well, you know how wolves always have a pack leader? Well maybe this bracelet is given to crown the leader of the pack and maybe they want that leader to be Val? :)
