|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. Tweet
