Do you enjoy a good fairy tale? I do! I was inspired to write a contemporary short story about a werewolf and a fairy. Tell me what you think of it!
🖤The Wolf and the Fairy – English Gothic horror story
She is a werewolf hunter, descended from ancient fairies, destined to fulfill her role in the family business. He is a lone wolf, his family brutally torn away, revenge his motivation for existence.
The fairy and the wolf come together in a violent union as this modern, adult fairy tale gives us an alternative account of life in ancient Britain, and how it has evolved in the present day.
“Where is you lair?” she demanded, pointing her sword at the wolf.
The woman stared up at her with a face streaked with tears and blood. She shook her head.
“I will not give up my pack to you,” she spat, “Kill me if you want. It makes no difference now.”
Tania nodded, and shoved the sword through the woman’s body, from her back straight through her chest. She screamed, cried, and slumped down across her mate’s body. Tania sank onto her knees on the wet grass. It was still raining. She was soaked, but she barely felt the water seeping through her jeans. She felt numb, empty. Killing werewolves was such a normal activity for her, that she had almost forgotten what it felt like to be guilty or remorseful.
