Bright Moon Stray

I knew Ed was a werewolf the night he climbed into bed at 4 a.m. smelling like dog. It was a full moon, too. I know this because it coincides with my menstrual cycle. Afraid, I bought a gun and kept it beneath my pillow. This morning I shot him in the head with a silver bullet. Now I’m being led through flashing lights to a police car. Some thanks. Kendra, the cute girl next door, stands on her porch with her dog. She is damn lucky to be alive.
