Another 100 Horrors, Published by Cruentus Libri Press

Another 100 Horrors, published by Cruentus Libri Press was a challenge.  With the restriction of only 100 words to create an entire story, I struggled for quite a while.  However, it was a challenge I accepted and succeeded at.  My story, titled "The Hunt" tells the tale of a werewolf changing from human to canine.
