My first entry in 100 word challenge for grownups. The prompt is … I woke with another headache. As we are close to Halloween, I have decided to use a horror theme. Picture is from wikimedia commons, but I have added som structure to it.
The bells of the country church struck midnight. Twelve heavy beats, and I woke with another headache. The full moon painted my bed sheets a fluorescent blue.
With agonizing pain my fangs and claws were growing. My muscles expanded and my body was covered with familiar bristle hair. The transformation had begun, and I were soon to lose my human mind.
The first hesitant howl escaped my lips, and I knew my family was now awake, huddled together, and hoping they wouldn’t meet me tonight.
I hoped the chains would hold tonight.
