The Curse of the Sun and the Moon

Self-hating werewolf, Rosen, has found the cure to the werewolf curse that has condemned her since childhood.

She will need the help of Laurent, a pretentious, too good-looking for his own good, fire demon to succeed in breaking the Moon Goddess curse.

With the magical Moon mirror in hand, will Rosen be able to do what needs to be done? Will she be able to let go of the one thing she holds dear for a chance to become fully human?

3. Hit the Road, Jack.

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back. No more. No more. No more. No more.

I zoomed through the highway and tapped my fingers on the steering wheel as I grooved to the tune. The drive put me in my much better spirits. I laughed; not a more perfect song could have fit the moment.

Woah! Woman, oh woman, don't treat me so mean --

You're the meanest old woman that I've ever seen --

I guess if you say so --

“I’ll have to pack my things and go! That's right,” I sang as I maneuvered the trailer that had been my home for so long, through the early morning traffic.

I had buried Jack, the poor bastard. He did not deserve a burial but I was not that heartless.

Things probably would not have escalated as quickly as they did, if I hadn’t been so ripe from my transformation the night before. But it is what it is.

Don’t you come back no more!

Don’t you come back no more!

Don’t you come back no more!

I snapped my fingers to the song as I changed lanes and drove to an exit that led to a trailer rest stop.

I needed a place to peacefully go through Jack’s ‘secret’ drawer. I had little less than thirty days before the full moon and I intended on being fully human by then.

I parked just as Ray Charles’ soulful ballad ended.

What would I do once I was completely human?

I stared out to the majestic Colorado sky and gazed upon the Rockies to my west. The snowcapped mountains were wrapped in a dark violet; the orange from the east still had not spilled over.

Maybe I could go to school, become something, meet someone, and get married? I let the dreams that I pushed so far inside the bleak abyss of my soul slowly and cautiously surface. Maybe have a family?

I couldn’t help the gleeful smile that made its way across my face.

Maybe I would follow my life long dream and purpose of exterminating all super naturals from the earth’s surface: wife and mother by day, supernatural killer by night. My background as a bounty hunter already made me more than qualified. I would hunt werewolves and end them in the same way as I did Jack.

Oh, can’t find a mate? That’s probably because they’re dead, thanks to Rosen’s Exterminate. Call 1800-Kill-a-Were. Where we get the job done! I chuckled. It really was not a bad idea, and not just werewolves. No. Vampires too…

I shook my head. Nah. There would be no reason to hunt vampires. They would probably come to me willingly, because let’s face it; they’re just looking for a way out of their pathetic non-food-enjoying-dead-anyway existence.

I walked to the makeshift office Jack had in the back of the trailer. His ‘secret’ drawer was no secret. I knew all about it and what was in it. It was where I found the diary after all.

I opened the drawer and was surprised to see a gigantic binder labeled: The Curse of the Sun and the Moon -- The Werewolf Cure.

I was expecting to find a vial of a medicine and be done with it, but it seemed like I was going to do some heavy reading instead.

I groaned and made myself comfortable. No good deed goes unpunished; kill a werewolf, and get rewarded with monotonous reading. I flipped open the binder and sighed. "It will all be worth it soon enough."
