After several centuries, the horizon was the only thing she noticed. Humans ran around, doing the same things and hardly changing. Seasons blended into each other. Only the sky held the magnificence that had willed her into wanting to live forever.

The horror of his first transformation forever crystallized in his memory. He’d never forget the fear, confusion, and pain. He hadn’t understood what was happening to him until he found a pack several months later, but they never could alleviate the trauma.

“Why would the hours of sunlight affect werewolves?”
“Because the lunar cycles do?”
“Do I seem grumpier to you right now?”
“Then the Equinox isn’t part of the lunar curse.”

Nothing lit fire in her eyes anymore. He watched her descend into sameness, offering her human after human in hopes she’d return to the fanged goddess he gave up mortality for.
