A werewolf is terrorizing a village
 



It was a chilly winter day. The wind was strong and howling as the snow
flurry began to fall. A woman wrapped in a thick winter coat made her 
way hurriedly down a beaten path toward the Her village. Her heart was 
pounding in her breast, for there was talk about a marauding wolf in 
the area. 

A werewolf , 

This was substantiated when the villagers saw to their horror and
amazement that the wolf paws they were following had changed into 
footprints in the snow  heading toward the village. 

At nights there was a bloodcurdling howling coming from the woods and
the villagers huddled closer to each other in fear. No one daring to go 
outside They became suspicious of each other. 

The werewolf had already killed six people ripping them to pieces with
fury. A hunting party was formed but the wolf was elusive and always 
kept one step ahead of them, so at a meeting in the community they 
decided to hire a professional hunter named Parker who then set traps 
in the woods around the village and waited. 

*** 

The woman hastens her steps. Out of sight of from her untrained eye, is
a sleek gray creature. He watches her without blinking as his 
unsuspecting prey hurries across the field without a clue that she was 
being watched. 

He waits as she moves across the snow covered ground towards him as he
hid himself behind clump of bushes, .his breathing forming clouds of 
vapour in the cold temperature. 

She gets closer,  her steps quicking. 

Patience, not yet .he thought. He can't afford to let this opportunity
slip by.  If he were to leave his position now he could lose his 
advantage on her. The slightest movement of muscle could give him away 
His ears perked as he readies himself for the attack. 

His heart is beating faster and faster now as the tension rose. 

He can hear his blood rushing through his veins. 

She gets closer. 

He positions his hind feet under his strong muscular body for leverage
He tensed himself for the leap. 

The moment is almost here. 

He tensed his leg muscles. Eyes fixed on the target 

NOW ! he thought and sprang 

She saw the huge body hurling towards her . she screams His huge form
sails through the air as if in slow motion towards her, his orange eyes 
blazing, his lips curling back in a snarl as he opened his mouth , 
showing long yellow fangs in his saliva lathered snout then A loud shot 
rang out, echoing through the woods. 

The impact of the silver bullet caught him flush in his furry chest
spinning him around in mid air and he fell heavily in the snow at the 
woman's feet. The woman fainted from shock . The Creature muscles went 
into involuntary spasms as his blood spread quickly over the snow. 

"Looks like we got here just in time."said Parker to his companion
"Yeah, and not a bit too late." replied his companion staring at the 
twitching creature.Then the transformation began slowly as the two 
hunters looked on in amazement. 

"Damn !, cried Parker, " No wonder we couldn't find him." The werewolf
slowly changed into the naked body of the village preacher who had 
arrived a month earlier in the village. The woman was taken for 
treatment at a nearby clinic 

Later that night ,Parker was in his cabin, the moon was rising. Feeling
a terrible heat filling his body, he ripped off his shirt and rushed to 
the window and stared at the full moon and began transforming into a 
huge grey, hideous werewolf ! Parker had figured that the village was 
too small for TWO werewolves.
