WoLF: Stay Like This by CXCR WoLF: Stay Like This by CXCR
This was an almost usual event for the son and the mother, the two of them seeking a pause from the summer's sun, and the heat which was never easy on either of them. Them nuzzling up together, it wasn't unusual. On his part, it was of something close to compassion, feeling sorry that his brothers never asked mother to join them in their play. He didn't want her to feel all alone, so often he'd stay with her.

Her wish for him, to never change...

Jessica: "Oh Ashley..."
Angel: "Yes, mother?"
Jessica: "Please, stay like this forever..."
Angel: "Allright mother, I promise I won't change."

Like that, their personal time continued. Neither of them worrying too much about the others. The mother would hear, should something happen, she'd know if they were in danger, though she doubted it.





"I can't keep you in these arms, so I'll keep you in my mind.
Reaching out, I can't feel you now."





BUT THEN, after the pups had gotten a bit older, mother and father died, and the pups were all alone, with only the remaining pack members to take care of them.
And the monster began to wake within the monochrome son.

---
btw it is a very canon thing that Angel was very close with his mother when he was a pup. He was her favorite out of the entire litter. Though giving him a out-of-the-ordinary name, he still listened, he responded to it, he didn't mind it. - He didn't change his name, and he didn't take on his alias 'Angel', until after his mother died. Perhaps he did that, so he wouldn't be reminded so much of his mother, and of how he had probably broken his promise to her.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Lyrics between the two breaks is from the song "You and I" by Pvris.

This is so heart-breaking, hearing what has happened later on in his life! However, the depiction of his youth and this 'monumental' moment within his life is absolutely beautiful. I really adore how you've drawn this picture, it really expresses the bond between mother and son so nicely!

I plan to do more past things with him and his family!
