Finish the story begins with:  “Where did they go?”

“Where did they go?” Ma Suzy asked Pa Glen. She thought he said that they would find the children there.

“I don’t know Suzy. The stranger gave me the map and instructions. Here we are. He did not say that we would only find ruins!”

Suzy started crying. Not human tears but splashes of red blood. She also started moaning like a lonely wolf. Glen had to put his fingers in his ears to keep the eerie howling out. It scared the hell out of him seeing his wife turning into a werewolf. Her hair stood wild and her eyes glowed dangerously. She came nearer and nearer to him. He had to do something.

Suddenly he remembered the words of the stranger:

Don’t look her in the eyes. Run to the ruins. You will find your children there. Be careful.

  1. I like the way you show Ma Suzy turning into a werewulf: blood-red tears and glowing eyes. That was a bit of a surprise! And I hope the stranger’s words prove to be true and Pa can get his children away to safety – not an easy task with a crazed werewulf on their heels. Good story, Scrapydo.
