There were times where the onset of the full moon meant bearing the entire brunt of the side effects that came along with it: exhaustion, sore bones, a general feeling of uneasiness, and occasionally flu-like symptoms. According to the other werewolves Lily had talked to over the last two years, this wasn’t always the case for all of them and it tended to vary from person to person. Hers was usually more of a restless foot syndrome – she felt the need to be constantly moving around and doing something. It didn’t matter what it was, as long as she was doing something physical.
Today had started that way for Lily. The usual restlessness typically didn’t appear until a few days before the full moon, but this month it was the week before. One loop around the Black Lake. Then a second loop, quickly followed by a third and a fourth, each time around with an increased pace. It was a dull, monotonous walk all by herself but it was running the energy out of her legs as planned. Her only company she had the entire time was the giant squid cresting the lake water every now and again, as it was prone to do. Lily quite liked the squid, having tossed food at its tentacles before in an effort to gain its trust and befriend it. Today it was only interested in eyeing the werewolf prowling around the lake edge, and she figured it was probably trying to figure out what she was doing. The first few times she even waved at it, obviously without a response back, and from there it decided to go about its own squidy business.
After an immeasurable amount of time and loops around the lake, Lily opted to take a seat on one of the giant rocks that skirted the shore. These were perfect spots to skip stones from, and two pockets full of prime skipping stones later, Lily perched herself on the rock and began her tosses. This beat being cooped up inside all day in class. With nobody else around, she could also cheer as loudly as she wanted whenever she broke her rock skipping record, which she was getting closer and closer to with each throw…
