Gift or Curse

It was getting dark as Jamez was walking home from school. He was a lil chilly, so he was wearing a hoodie and jogging pants. He didn’t need anything too thick because he was a hotbox. As he walked, he heard a loud howl from something that sounded like a wolf, it sounded weird. He was put on high alert after that and started running. As he ran he heard loud steps like there was something huge chasing him. And he could tell that it was fast. It was growling, and he ran faster, but it wasn’t enough. . . . the creature that was chasing had pounced on him and bit his trap. Jamez had yelled so loud the whole neighborhood could hear him. The creature let go of him and ran away because the neighborhood had been alerted. Jamez had blood dripping on his back and chest and it didn’t seem like it was going to stop anytime soon. He lost consciousness from losing blood.

Jamez woke up and looked around he noticed he wasn’t home so where was he?

Someone called “Hey, I see you’re awake”, said the woman.

“Who are you and where am I?” said Jamez.

“My name is Sara and you’re in my house. My daughter had seen you lying on the pavement outside her window and told me, so I came to get you and saw you were bleeding a lot so I patched you up”, said Sara.

“Thank you. Oh I didn’t tell you who I am. My name is Jamez.” 

“Nice to meet you”, said Sara. 

“Likewise”, said Jamez.

“I’ve gotta go home and thank you once again for patching me up”, said Jamez. And he left the house.

As he was walking home he looked to see that he was 2 blocks away. Was that real; it feels like a dream to be honest. I can’t really believe it.

James walks in the house and his mom runs downstairs with tears coming down her face. She tugs him tightly and says that she’s glad he’s home. 

“Where were you?”, said his momma. 

“I was attacked”, said Jamez.

“By what?!!!!”

“I don’t know, but all I can say is that it was huge and had sharp teeth.”

“I’m just glad you’re back baby”, said his momma.

Jamez went up to his room to put his clothes in the dirty clothes and went to the bathroom to take a shower. When he took off the bandages he was healed as if he hadn’t been bitten at all. He was shocked. This is crazy how I am already healed after all that pain I experienced. I can’t believe this and I can’t tell no one just yet cause I don’t want to end up being a lab rat. Jamez finishes taking his shower and goes back into his room to change into some clothes.

The next day was the last day of school before christmas break. This day was a weird day for me everything was so loud and I could smell everything and I mean everything. In gym this was crazy my speed was amazing, my hops jumping over the basketball hoop, and strength I was like a muscle man. I mean I workout and I’m strong, but it’s like I got a boost. Tonight was a full moon too. 

As I walked home it was gloomy, dark, and a lot of snow. As I walked I felt weird and I was in pain as I walked and the pain got worse and worse until I fell to the snowy ground. My bones felt as though they were breaking and twisting and turning. It felt like something in me was trying to get out and as it was my teeth were becoming fangs, my ears felt they were growing to become elf ears, my nails grew to sharp claws, and I blacked out.

Jamez had become a 7ft, hairy wolfman, aka werewolf. When he was done he had howled and went on a killing spree he saw a few people on the street and saw cars and every person he saw he slaughtered. For the people in cars he would jump on their car, put his hand through their window and rip them out of it and slam them on the ground and rip them to shreds spreading all of their intestines and ate them. 

When he woke up he was in his front yard and covered by the bushes. Man what’s that smell? It smells terrible. And what in the world happened to my clothes. Jamez noticed that he was in his front yard, so he got up real quick and ran in the house. He ran upstairs to his room and slammed the door.

“What the hell is happening to me?!!”, said Jamez. The last thing I remember was walking home and feeling pain. Everything from there is a blank. Jamez went to the bathroom and hopped in the shower. As the water ran on him he saw blood going down the drain. What did I do? I have to figure this out. Jamez closed his eyes and became lost in thought.

Where am I? There was a loud howl and the sound of growling. He didn’t know what to do. He was stagnant from fear. The werewolf stood right in front of him. Its eyes glow yellow and drool coming from its sharp fangs. The werewolf is ready to attack. He pounces and Jamez is still shocked from fear.
