I watch the moon as it rises, the worst is upon me. The instant when the moon is full will test my resolve. Anticipation chained me in my room for three days. Battle rage flows in me, demanding I break the restraints, break out, break my vow. I lower my head staring at the deep grooves in the floor cut by my massive claws. Saliva oozes from my jaw, long sticky streams dangle and fill the voids in the floor. Thundering blood chases rational thought, forcing it to quiver and hide. A tortured howl sounds the call, sealing my fate.


Keep on writing.

  1. Lots of gritty description here. I like the saliva filling the voids in the floor. I also like the concept, that the beast has taking steps, while still human, to protect others from his transformed self, but these precautions have proven inadequate.

  2. It’s like an addict craving their next shot, pledging to resist, but not being able to when the brain is turned off and craving kicks in. Being a werewolf seems to mirror these feelings, only they are that way not of their own chosing. Great descriptions of how reason gives way to lust for blood and power.
