Ghoulish Flash Fiction A to Z: Werewolf (Worldwide)

As the attackers backed her down the dark ally, an odd-sounding growl escaped the cornered Lupe. When the  full moon finally lit every corner of the alley, Lupe was the only monster standing.

—–33 words—–

Today’s Trifextra: Week Sixty-Four haunting is inspired by the werewolf of which there are many tales and variations worldwide.

Your challenge this weekend is to give us 33 words about anything you want.  Your piece must include at least one hyphenated compound modifier.  Remember that the hyphen will join your two words together to create one, so you will have a bit more wiggle room with your word count and language.  You are free to use more than one hyphenated modifier in your post, but we ask that you be careful not to sacrifice readability in the process.

    “Lupe was the only monster standing” says so much about the scene; about who had cornered her, and of course, who won the battle!
