Beast Chapter 16I was just wiping a mugger's blood off my hand when I got Lenore's text: He's here. I told the nice old woman that she didn't have to pay me, and I had to let the mugger run away before I ran in the direction of the abandoned church.More Like This
When I got there, Lenore was by a nearby tree, playing with a little cat. After a brief moment of confusion, I realized it must have been the person we were looking for.
I sneaked as close as I could, and tried to bark like a dog. The cat-person found me convincing enough, judging by how quickly he darted up the tree. Lenore half-heartedly threw a rock at me, knowing I would catch it. "About time you showed up."

Beast Chapter 18Sterling's eyes widened and his jaw dropped when he saw the headline. I picked up another paper and started reading aloud. "Yesterday, around 10 PM and in broad daylight, a group of teenagers was attacked by what witnesses describe as a large dog or wolf. Over the past month, wolves have been frequently sighted, though there is no indication of what prompted this aggression, or if this attack is related to the strange incident last month in which an unknown large animal left twenty-two students from a local high school injured and one dead.
