Eternal Curse: Battleground 8.0 (wip)

I paced the fire lit cave of our secret rendezvous that night, wondering what this special new half-breed and his human companion would look like. I’d never met a shifter before. The few half-breeds I’d meet, at that time, only had one appearance. When Fred told me that you might be a shifter, I became anxiously self-conscious. I’d always wished I could look different, even if it was only for a little while. As we waited in the warmth of the rock walls absorbing the heat of our fire, I began to smell the scent of a human approaching. For some reason, I could always smell humans from further away. After a short while, we saw the flickering lights of their electric lanterns and heard their voices coming closer. Then it seemed as if they appeared from out of the darkness.
