“Alexandra Wolfsbane! Wake up this instant or your going to be late!”
“I’m awake ma! Just getting ready!”
My name is Alexandra Wolfsbane (Alex for short). I live with my Ma, Pa, two brothers Jake and Fang, and my twin sister Zora. We are Werewolves who live in the valley of the Moon.
I jumped out of bed, threw on black trousers, a white tunic, my black vest, and ran down stairs. My brothers were already fighting over who gets more food. I dodged Jake as Fang flipped him, and grabbed food for Zora and I.
“Alex, you and Zora are going to be late. No detours today!”
“Alright, Ma. See you later!”
As I ran out the house, Zora landed beside me. She has a habit of jumping from our bedroom window. I tossed her share of food to her.
“So Alex. You going to show off today?”
“Even if I do that, and she likes it. It’s not as if I can declare my love to her. Ma and Pa would kill me.”
“I don’t see why it matters. I checked. No where in the Laws of the Moon People does it say that it’s forbidden for a girl to love another girl.”
“I know Zora. But everyone says it’s a bad thing, and that those that do will never become a full werewolf.”
“Don’t pay attention to people who say that. They are all old and full of bad meat. Now we have to hurry, class is about to start. We are finally going to hunt our own prey today.”
“Today is the day I prove that being a runt doesn’t mean you are weak. I’m going to get the biggest kill today, and we will eat like royalty tonight.”
“We are both runts; twins born under a Full Moon. We are two sides of the same coin, one dark the other light. That has never happened before. We are special.”
Zora and I both smiled and said,
‘Today is the day we will show our power!”
