The howling monster

Jacob could feel the blood rushing though his veins. His heart was pounding abnormally. He recalled with dread what these symptoms meant. He rushed out into the woods with the usual things. When he reached the specific place, he chained himself to the big oak tree.

Jacob slowly took apart his clothes and waited with patience while looking earnestly at the full moon that had already steered clear of the soft white clouds. He felt his heart pounding faster than ever, and the blood rushed to his head. A terrible pain similar to when bones cracking engulfed his burly body. He screamed with horror and despair. It had started.

His spine had protruded from the middle and took an arched shape. Slowly but surely, auburn hair grew out from all parts of his suffering body. His limbs and hands had transformed from mere human ones to the hideous claws of a wolf. Jacob waited with patience till the end of the painstaking process. As soon as it was over, and he had completely transformed, the wolf looked sympathetically at the bright shining moon embedded on the clear star ridden sky, and howled.

Werewolves are mythological creatures that have the ability to shapeshift into wolves. They are forced to do this when under a curse. The process is initiated when the person under the curse sleeps outside on a summer night with the full moon shining directly on his or her face.

Werewolves are said to be vulnerable to silver and highly resistant to any form of injuries.
