Carrie sighed, her father once again lecturing her into boredom. "Carrie, you are going to reach your first heat soon. You really need to consider that." He swept a bushy tail along the ground, looking at her with a mixture of pride and loss. "I have already chosen a male for you. He is on his way here to the tribe. We already built you a hut and you shall be joining with him in our ceremony before leaving for that place." Carrie looked at her father in shock, her wolf ears standing on end. "Father! You already chose?!" Her brown ears folded back on her head to mix with her brunette locks. Her matching tail swished along the ground angrily. She sighed, bowing her head in submission when he snarled. "I will do my best to produce pups for the tribe. I'm sorry father." He nodded to her. "I just wish your mother was here. Without our alpha female this will be difficult. You are going to take over the tribe you know." He looked at her and his chest swelled with pride. "You will be the perfect alpha, darling."
