Once upon a time there lived an unusual girl named Riley. She was born in a forest filled with unimaginable things: magic, dwarfs, evil witches, werewolves, and great warlocks. Riley was the newest addition to her family of werewolves in over 100 years. Afraid of Riley being hunted and hurt, her mother made the choice to give her up, so Riley’s mom took her to her own mother’s house. “Mother! Mother! Are you in there? Please it is urgent.” Riley’s mom screamed as she furiously knocked on the door.
“I’m I'm coming my child, what is the matter?”
“ Mother I know this much to ask, but I'm afraid you need to be Rileys knew protector. It's to dangerous out there for her.”
“ Me? How could I possible protect her?”
“Please mother, raise her like you raised me…”
“Ok child, I will do my best to care for her”
Riley was then left with her grandma, this where she would grow up and realize who she really is.
Ten years passed, Riley was now 10. She was a kind little girl, always taking care of her grandma, going to the bakery to pick up bread, and doing the various chores around the house. Today was Riley’s usual trip to the bakery. Worried that she wasn't going to be back before the full moon tonight Grandma waited outside. Luckily Riley made it back before dark, Grandma let out a sigh of relief. “Granny are you ok? You seem a little tense?” Riley asked with caution. “ Yes sweetie there's nothing to worry about.” Granny lied to Riley, she couldn't afford telling her the truth. She was fast asleep in her room, Granny was wide awake. Tonight was Riley's first werewolf transformation. A shock of pain throughout Riley’s body woke her up, it was begging. “Granny what is happening to me?” Riley creamed out in pain. “It’s ok my child Grandam is here for you, everything is going to be ok.” Silence filled the room. “Please…. do something…. It hurts…” It was finished. Shattered glass surrounded the window after Riley jumped through it. “Be safe my child” Granny mourned. Smoke in the air, burning villages, chaos all around, all caused by Riley's new form. Granny thought to herself, “I must do something about this”
“Dark one, I summon thee.”
“Hello there deiry, what can I do for you.”
“I need something magical to stop Riley from destroying the village.”
“Magic always come with a price.”
“I’ll pay that price, please just help!”
“Here you a magic cloak, just put it on and poof she’ll be back to her old self.”
“Thank you, I am in your debt.”
“Don't worry that debt will be paid soon enough.”
Loud angry screams were starting to come from the village, a mob was starting to hunt down Riley, Grandma furiously ran towards the village in order to find her. It was too late, the angry mob was already chasing Riley towards their home. “NO NO NO….. This can’t be happening. Riley please where are you, come to granny.” Granny yelled in fear. Riley swiftly ran up to granny, she instantly wrapped the cloak around her and watched her turn back to normal. “Granny what happened….” Riley glances towards the village “ was that me?”
The mob approached the house, pitchforks, torches, and larges scythes swinged in rage as they waited to kill Riley.
“Please go away. It wasn't her fault she didn't know”
“We don't care she ruined our homes, destroyed our crops. Why does that thing deserve to live?”
The commotion stopped, Riley walked outside giving away her identity. Know one really knew who the wolf was. Everyone was shocked they didn't know it was Riley, one of the kindest girls in village was the wolf. They all thought to themselves, how could we possible kill her. Instead they decided to let her, from that day forever she was called Red and no one ever looked at her the same.
Many years have passed since that tragic night out in the village. Red, now 26 was picking up baked goods from the bakery as normal. A soothing aroma filled the room as Riley walked in slowly to enjoy the smell.
“Hi there Red, how’s your granny doing?” asked Bell with a smile “She’s doing ok, still very sick and it is only getting worse the older she gets”
“I’m sorry to hear that. Here take some bread for your grandmother, free of charge.”
“Thank you, you are so kind. I guess i'll be on my way now.”
Riley was taking her usual path home, when all of sudden she ran into a strange man. This strange man wore ripped grew pants, a red stained white shirt, his hair all over the place.
“Hi there, do you happen to be Red?” the stranger asked Red with a menacing smile.
“Yes that happens to be me. What can I do for you?”
“I’m looking for your grandmother, do you knew where I can find her? She’s an old friend and I thought I should pay her a visit”
“Well in that case she lives in the village over, her cottage is the one on top of the hill” she said with a kind smile.
This strange man walked the opposite way of the village, Red thought to herself that he might be stopping by later so she didn't think much of it. It was almost noon, Red had finally arrived at granny’s cottage. The door was slightly open, there were silent screams coming from inside. Red swung the door open to see only granny getting attacked by vicious wolf. There was only one thing to do, Red took her cloak off and quickly transformed to an elegant wolf herself. She lunged at the wolf attacking granny, with all her might Red scratched and clawed hoping she could win the fight. In the end she did, it was over. The wolf that had been attacking granny transformed back into none other then the stranger, Red met earlier in the forest. Red was proud of herself, something she thought was a cursed turned into a gift. She wasn’t scared of the her little so called curse, she embraced by wearing the cloak, as a reminder of all the good she can do instead of all the harm that it has brought.
