THE MOON WAS FULL.
MY HEART BEAT FASTER AND FASTER. BEAST WAS NOT STILL. ALL THE PAIN INSIDE SCREAMED TO COME OUT. AGGGGGHHHH!
I AM BEAST. I AM RAGE AND BITTERNESS.

WHAT WAS IT?
BEAST WAS QUIET.
BEAST SMELLED A PEQUIN.
BEAST DOES NOT BITE WHAT BEAST DOES NOT KILL.
BE STILL BEAST.
THE PEQUINS SAT UNAWARE OF ME. I HOWLED.
I AM BEAST. THEY TURNED.
I AM BEAST.
ALL IS BETTER NOW.
The moon was full. I was in a rage I could not control.

I came to myself in horror thinking I had eaten a Forest Person.

They bring me trinkets and food. I dwell with them at daytime.
When darkness comes, I am strong. I run with the wind when it blows. I am rage, I eat the flesh of the predator.

Brother is kind.
I am still. I am Beast
