[Writing] Quiet the Werewolf

I crave the quiet. Image by Viergacht.

In the game Town of Salem, you can leave random notes on your "will" that everyone in Town can view once you die. Ideally, you would write things in it that would help the players (especially those in your faction) figure out who has which role. I usually leave helpful (and not-so-helpful) notes on mine, but sometimes, I get struck by inspiration and end up writing a story instead.

This particular will story came about when I ended up as a Werewolf named Quiet.

I like the quiet. I enjoy it. I thrive in it. I crave it.

I've forgotten what it sounds like though. A voice keeps on telling me that I'm a monster, and every other night, I see that monster in the mirror. Dripping spit, dark red eyes, dirty gray fur.

Long ago, I was angry. Why me? I didn't choose to be like this. I just wanted to be a regular guy. Maybe have a family.

I miss the quiet.
