Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story lolling in a swivel chair opposite his chief. "Another one by the Phantom Killer in Dalousie last night , same M.O.” said Peterson evenly “We have got a lot of work ahead of us, Ralph, we are dealing here with a vicious serial killer! ” “Yeah, but this is a new slant ripping out the victims'throats!”.replied Peterson. “That‘s what bothering me, Ralph, serial killers usually strangle their victims or use some sort of weapon.”It seems as if some animal is at work” “Maybe it's a werewolf” If you ask me,” Forster smiled, He was in one of his rare good moods. "A werewolf ? in this age,Ralph? come on ,give me a break, you've been seeing to many horror movies " “ Don't laugh, James," said Peterson, picking up a sheet of paper from his desk. ”I've been doing some research “, he said looking at the sheet,”it says here that if a werewolf bites you and you don't die, you're doomed to turn into a wolf once a month! “ Forster laughed scornfully. Undaunted, Peterson continued his reading,”To discover the identity of a werewolf, you wound it and search for a similar wound on a human. In some legends, the werewolf becomes a vampire after its death and as with vampires, these creatures can be sexy and/or scary and are usually portrayed as stronger than mere mortals “Where did you get that ?”asked Forster “On the Internet” “Well, forget that nonsense,Ralph, and let's do some modern investigation. He got up and walked over to a map of Calgary on the wall.It displayed six coloured pins on the locations of the previous five murders. The next night in Downtown Calgary. A security guard was on his way to work when he heard a low growl coming from a hallway. He saw a figure move.The figure moved again.and he finally saw what he was looking for. A huge wolflike creature crouched on the floor. The wolf stared at him, but the man's brain only registered it's size and the eyes. They held him there, freezing him in place.As the light crept over the figure, the man watched as the eye changed colour, at first, it was yellow then it changed into a piercing green.then the figure seems to float towards him and everything went blank! Then a huge wolflike creature emerged from the building. A patrol cruiser was in the vicinity ,when the occupants Constable Smith and his pardner Joe Hendricks saw the creature. ‘Shit! Do you see what I see ? “Yeah,but I can't believe it!.. look at it's f.......ing size!... let's give chase,man” The creature raced along the side walk at an incredible speed,It was humanoid in shape,it's upper body had a huge wolf like head . It's breath heaved in and out, spuming clouds of steam before him. It's great shaggy chest raised and lowered, and it's powerful shoulders surged..as The cops got out and gave chase,.guns drawn. The creature turned into an alleyway .It was a deadend. The cops flashed their torch lights and gasped .as the creature turned and looked at them menacingly . it made a loud growland was about to springon them when Officer Joe squeezed off three shots in succession.. The shots caught it in mid air and spun it around. It slammed into Officer Smith, throwing him off his feet. He fell backwards, heavily onto the sidewalk, knocking the wind out of him. The creature snarled, saliva drooling on the officer, then got up quickly and tried to get away. Officer Hendricks emptied his service revolver into it. It gave a loud, painful blood curdling scream as the bullets entered it's body. It began twitching,awhile, then lay still.. A crowd of curious onlookers formed around the fallen creature, keeping a safe distance as it began to changing slowly into a man. The crowd gasped in disbelief at the transformation.as Officer hendricks went quickly over to his fallen pardner. “You okay,buddy?' He asked.concerned. Yeah,I will live, did you get it?” “Yeah I got it allright, the bastard change into a man!”it was a werewolf.all right” you gotta be kiddin” As if by magic an ambulance appeared, Theattendants took up the corpse and driven away They found his ID card and Address book in a wallet and decided to check out his home. The police were shocked by what they found at his home. The place was ransack and paraphernalia of voodoo and exotic trophies were found every where There was also a poster of the movie “The Wolfman” starring Lon Chaney Jr pasted on a wall. On a coffee table was a diary. Constable Peterson picked it up and flipped through the pages and was astonished at what he read : October 23rd : I cannot go on like this, killing innocent people because of my curse of being a werewolf. I am responsible for the five killings that took place recently here in Calgary . I was bitten by a werewolf while in the woods in Romania.An old gypsy told me that since I survived I would change into a werewolf every month. I laughed in her face putting it down to superstition. But I know better now . it's true!as I began feeling different, a craving for meat and blood engulfed me. My first kill was a child in Romania. They blamed a wild wolf on the loose. But I did it. I can't go on like this living the rest of my life under this dreaded curse I know what I have to do to end this dreaded curse and I ask forgiveness for all the suffering I have caused. But under the curse, I cannot control my self, and I cannot go on like this any longer .The blood lust was too strong. This will be my last entry. Tonight I will go into Calgary...which I hope will be my last night..May all forgive me. He handed the Diary over to Forster and smirked .“What Did I tell you.” At his home, Chief Inspector Forster, looked at himself in the mirror and said to himself “I am glad they caught him .Damn! Calgary is to small for TWO werewolves” and began turning into a wolf! Tweet
