Luna Rising

"We aren't like that pop culture crap you see on television, this is real life and isn't half as glamorous."

I looked at her blue eyes. They were still so impossibly blue it made me shiver. I tried to come closer but she gave me a warning growl and I stay put.


1. Bare


I was disappointed to find that my once thick coarse black fur had been replaced with human flesh. The metallic taste of blood was still heavy on my tongue. It had rained last night and all the smells of the woods seemed to be enhanced by at least one hundred times. I looked up, the once full moon had been put down to rest and the sun's early glare began to shine down on my current location. I didn't remember where I was. My wolf instincts told me to get up, and move before someone saw me.

My feet dug into the Earth, it always took awhile to get used to my own two legs instead of my more comfortable four. I missed the shine of the full moon, it was so lovely, so peaceful.

I know what you're thinking. The full moon. These are those Hollywood movie stereotypes that us wolves only change on a full moon. This isn't true, we change on every moon. Whether if it's full, half, a gibbous. It didn't matter, the only time we didn't change was on a new moon. Even though the moon is still out there it isn't in sight so out bodies don't react.

I was naked.

Clothes don't come with us when we change, there's a shock.

My sister would have changed back by now too. I realized where I was. I was in the woods near this ratty high school, wait never mind, my ratty high school.  My sister, Kuusou, insisted I come to school and be as regular as possible which is an impossible task when you turn into an animal every night and become flesh again when the sun peaks through the fresh layer of clouds. It darted back through the now familiar trees, my eyes shifting here and there and my ears on high alert to any and every sound.


When I slid through the back porch of my sister's house all was silent. She must've already left for work. Damn it. I liked making small pointless conversations with her only to forget them later on within the passing minutes. Kuusou made me feel normal sometimes when every aspect about me isn't.

The clock on the microwave in the kitchen read 7:42 AM.

My bus would be here at 7:50.

I had eight minutes to act as if I wasn't a wolf, to blend with my peers and go to school and talk about things that sophomores in high school talk about. I let my mind drift back to the feel of wet dirt on my fur and stringy grass that clings to my back as I roll around in it with the rest of the pack. Play fighting and hunting for little baby rabbits. But instead of that world, the one I love and hate I had to be put into another one that was cruel and superficial. The one I always hate.

The clock on the microwave read: 7:46 AM. Shit, four minutes.

I took the quickest shower in the history of the world, and thankfully Kuusou left some clothes out for me to wear. She was always thinking of me and normally I didn't change back until after her because I try so hard to stay a wolf. No wonder why she is the alpha female, she was always considering others whether or not she was human or wolf.

I wasn't hungry on account of part of deer a that rattled around in my stomach.

I missed the bus even after a flurry of me trying to beat it. I look in the mirror while brushing out my tangled locks of black hair, I liked my hair. It was the color of my fur, my other skin. My eyes were frightening blue. Something about our eyes is even when we turn wolf the eyes stay the same. Human eyes in a wolf's body.

I heard the bus pull away but after chasing it down to the next stop I got on it and prepared for hell.
