Though I am sometimes more than reluctant to admit it, there are a lot of advantages to being a werewolf. Granted I was crouching bloody, bruised and sore, in the bushes of some random backyard because of what I was, but at least I was alive, and for that I was not complaining. There's nothing like a near-death experience to make you grateful for what you have, and right now I was glad the lycanthropy I'd been born with meant that I could withstand such a brutal beating from my so-called pack. Glad that the wounds all over my body would fade away without a trace, without even a scar to remind me that I had nearly died. Hours ago- though in my mind it felt like more than that- I had dragged my broken body away from my attackers with much help from the wolf who shared part of my soul. Like I said, there were a lot of advantages. Now here I was; as wholly intact as I could possibly be, about to risk my life again and attempt for the fourth time to break into some st

I opened my eyes to darkness, knowing straight away that it would be one of those nights. The only light came from the glowing red numbers of the digital clock on my bedside table, but I didn't need to see to know that someone was right here in the room with me. The strange extra sense I'd had for as long as I could remember told me that he was alone, waiting patiently at my doorway. A ghost with manners? There was a first time for everything, I suppose.
Of course, 'ghost' wasn't the 'politically correct' name, and I'd been told off more times than I could count for calling them that. Sure, a lot of the spirits (or entities or whatever they wanted to call themselves) I saw really were people who had once been alive, existing now in some separate realm for one reason or another. But I'd met some that truly didn't know who- or what- they were. It was as though they'd popped out of thin air.
The mysterious man at my doorway, however, knew exactly what he was and what he was doing. A feeli

Winter is a nothing kind of event in the usually heated city of Brisbane. It was cold, but because of the constant humidity in the air, it never snowed, and so being outside was quite bearable. Soothing, in fact, after the long and stifling summer I'd endured miserably. Still, though lycanthrope temperatures ran higher than normal humans and our skin always felt like we were running a mild fever, it was evident that tonight was going to get a lot colder. I could feel it in the icy air as I breathed it in; there was a crispness to it as it filled my lungs that was only detectable in the colder winter months. I would most definitely need something warmer than the tattered remains of my clothing since I had to spend my time in human form. So when it came to breaking into someone's home, I really had no choice. I know I was just trying to make myself feel better for breaking the human's laws. It wasn't like it was something I was used to, at least, not outside of my
