Monsters: Werewolf

18 Oct

The moon calls to her. She can feel it itching along her spine. It doesn’t matter if she can see the moon or not. It could be on the other side of the planet and she can still feel the moment slowly approach where she will have to give over to what lurks inside her.

Once a month she makes the three-hour drive to her family’s land outside of town. With her similarly-afflicted kin, she sheds first her clothes, then her skin. The transformation into wolf-like form is painful, but not without rewards. For three days, the moon is their master.
