Family History (Friday Fictioneers)

December 23, 2021
PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

As the lights disappear into the distance behind me, I let out a sigh. No blood spilt this year. Not bad considering it was a full moon only a week ago. I never wanted to be one of them. I guess you can run but what you are will always win out. Hereditary. My nails are still blunt. That’s something. The change hasn’t happened yet. My taste for raw meat is growing stronger. I eye the driver, notice the vein in his neck and direct him to drive via the alley up ahead. I clamp my eyes shut, growling softly.

This is a Friday Fictioneers prompt

  1. Very atmospheric, Laurie. And I liked the werewolf’s reluctance

  2. Once he gets the taste of blood he will become unstoppable.

  3. A werewolf with a conscience, let’s hope there’s no bloodshed.

  4. Not one’s normal Christmas tale.

  5. I think making it *almost* a year is cause for celebration.

  6. Looks like he might indulge in a special dinner for the holidays. 🙂

  7. I like how your character tries to fight who they are. I fear the time has come for heredity to take over. Very suspenseful! Merry Christmas, Laurie. I hope you have a nice weekend.

  8. There’s nothing like a soft growl to make one wonder how this will end. 🙂 Enticing story, Laurie.

  9. Dear Laurie,

    You’ve created the inner struggle well. Quite a legacy your MC is left with.

    Merry Christmas,

    Rochelle

  10. Once can only fight who one is so long. You did create an atmosphere that had me sitting there… out of reach, of course!

  11. An artful and sideways look at our inability to ward off blood-suckers, especially over the Christmas season.
