Number SixWolf Number Six, as scientists have kindly named him, paces the ground, trying to ignore his hunger; he hasnt eaten in over a week. Number Six is lost from his pack and thus has not had permission from the alpha to eat. But how can he ignore the pain gripping his stomach? He whines and heads toward a nearby farm where the scent of sheep is strong. He cocks his head to the side and scans a group of sheep, looking for a sick one.
