Lauren worked at the Starbucks until 12:00 am at night. She thought after a time, she would feel safer and more comfortable walking home in the dark. Her apartment was only four-blocks away.

This evening she felt particularly on edge and the noise of metal dropping somewhere nearby, echoed in the night. 

Lauren began to shake, she had one block to go when she started to run. Then there was only the front door to get into her apartment. She hurriedly opened the door and screamed when she felt someone touch her arm. 

 “Calm down Lauren, it’s only me. Your neighbour Alice. I’m headed over to my sisters. Brandy and her kids are all ill with the flu and I’m going to help her with the little ones.” 

“Oh Alice,” Lauren said trembling. She squeezed Alice’s arm, happy she was there. “I’m sorry about Brandy and her kids, I didn’t mean to freak out on you. It scares me walking home in the dark alone.” 

Alice clicked her tongue, “A girl of your age shouldn’t be alone at night.” When she bared her wolf-like teeth, Lauren knew it was too late.

    Aww Man, I thought she had made it! But yet I did have a sneaking suspicion that something was up! Unfortunately for Lauren I was right.

    OH no! There is nothing more frightening than to realize the neighbor you trusted turns out to be a werewolf! Great story, Mandi!

      Thank you Lorraine. Of course, I think the females are usually more vicious though.

      Yes the neighbour lady was a ware-wolf. I know, just when she thought she was safe, it’s always the person you least expect. Thank you for reading Joan 🙂
