Werewolf: Reclusion – Day 4

It was no surprise Daneekas Ghost was having trouble sleeping tonight. After a five hour rotation of turning off the light, turning on the light to read for awhile, he finally gave up two books into it.

He started a pot of coffee then opened up his closet and retrieved his suit so he could iron it one last time. He grabbed a lint roller that was down to a scant few sheets and eyed his suit for any stragglers but he could fine none. Today was his day, and he was going to marry Annette in this suit.

He headed back towards the kitchen and was just finishing pouring himself a cup when there was a knock on the door. He jerked at the sound and splashed some coffee on his bare foot in the process. “Gahhhh!” Damn, that hurt.

“Are you okay?” the voice on the other side of the door said.

That sounded like Annette. What was she doing here?

“Annette?” he called.

“Yes. It’s me,” the voice replied.

“What are you doing here? We’re not supposed to see each other before we get married.”

“I just had to see you about something and it couldn’t wait. Could I come in?”

“Yeah, hold on a sec.” Daneekas Ghost grabbed a hand towel and wiped off his left foot, which was getting a little red and puffy where the coffee had landed, threw the towel in the sink and walked over to the door.

He opened it and gasped. The moon was bright this night and it reflected off her dress, satiny and white. He just stared for a second or two before saying, “It’s beautiful.”

“Thank you,” she said.

“I know I shouldn’t, but I feel the need to kiss you right now.”

“I wouldn’t mind,” she said.

Daneekas Ghost stepped forward and lifted up the veil. He gasped again.

“What is it?” she asked.

“Nah…no…” is all Daneekas Ghost could say.

“Is there something wrong?” she laughed.

“Wo…wo…wo…” he was having trouble breathing.

“Oh, come now. Deep down you knew all along, didn’t you? You’re a smart man.”

“Wo..wo..wo….”

“Aw. It’s so cute when you’re flustered. I could just eat you up.”

Daneekas Ghost tried desperately to scream, backing away, shaking his head, still gasping for air…

…and snapped awake, flinging his book onto the floor.

“Oh my god. Oh thank god.” he said aloud.

    ===A GUN HAS BEEN FIRED===

    A villager was on their way back from a hike in the woods when they saw Daneekas Ghost hunched behind a tree. To their surprise he was holding a gun. They hid behind a tree of their own, and not long after Daneekas Ghost pulled the trigger.

    The villager ran back to town and rang the newly installed bell in the town square. All the villagers who weren’t already out to see what that noise was, gathred now.

    “What is this about?” asked Daneekas Ghost.

    “Well you should know,” the villager said, “I saw you shooting a gun!”

    “Oh that. I was just practicing so I am ready when it matters. Everyone is still here aren’t they?” Daneekas Ghost asked.

    The town looked around. Everyone looked alright. Nobody was bleeding.

    “I guess, but you scared the shit out of everyone. We’re going to have to place you under house arrest for the rest of the day just to be safe.”

    Gun was fired. Nobody was hit. DaneekasGhost is under house arrest and is not allowed to post/vote for the remainder of the day.

    First, congratulations to the happy couple!

    Second, I am as confident that I know who the wolf is as I ever am on day 4. Remaining wolf is the ancient, so he must be killed twice. Unless he’s been secretly killed once already. The rules to this game are fascinating and byzantine!

    At this moment I don’t think the wolf is Bret, but not a lot of evidence to back that up.

    I was going to go back and read previous days, but apparently my attention span is also taciturn.

    I’ll keep talking until I run out of words, which

      Lol, I looked up byzantine. I didn’t know there was a singular word to describe the games I make 🙂

    Nearly four days have now passed since werewolves struck the town, and what you might have once called a bunch of recluses were nearly social butterflies (relatively speaking that is). Well, all except that Melissa chick. She hadn’t left her cabin much since day 1, and had made it clear to all that she was not obligated to follow any of their stupid rules, let alone these so-called ones about having to vote.

    Dusk was nearing and they gathered once again to confirm the votes. Jonathon Pope did a quick but accurate accounting and announced to all, “Hang Beau.”

    There was a nervous energy in the group — hopeful that this nightmare might finally be put to an end, moods tempered by their natural pessimism.

    Beau climbed onto the chair and todahshy cinched the noose tight around his neck. He got a good running start (for some reason) and kicked the chair out from underneath Beau. The rope snapped immediately and Beau managed to land feet first from the great fall of two feet.

    “Jiminy Cricket!” exlaimed Annette, “that was the last rope we had. We’re gonna have to make another one.”

    “This may have been a sign,” suggested Matt, “maybe we should sleep on this and take another vote again tomorrow.”

    The townsfolk clearly were disappointed (except Beau of course), but nodded in agreement and trudged back to their homes.
