Rumour had it that there was a cottage only a night's trip away from where Rory lived with his new pack that could cure Lycanthropy. Being tired of trying to adjust to his new world, the young werewolf decided to check for himself to see if this rumour was actually true. He figured it was best though to wait until night fall to run away. With everyone sleeping, it was usually easiest to leave then.
Just as he was about to leave, he stopped in his tracks. What if the rumour turned out to be true? Rory more than likely would not be associating with the pack anymore if he was human again. And, despite only being there for a short period of time, they had taken him in. Plus they continued to accept him even when he tried running away. They had been the only family he had had in a while...
He quickly wrote a note to say good bye to them before leaving. This would give him enough time to get to the cottage.
Shortly after leaving, Rory found himself in a particularly bumpy area of terrain - tree roots were sticking up everywhere. He did his best to try to safely step over each one, however it was dark. This lead him to catch his foot on a root and fall, landing hard on his outstretched arm.
