In the morning, Teodor woke up when the sun shone in his eyes. up. He could see his breath, but he didn't feel the cold. He rubbed his arms. His fur had grown while he has slept. Amanda rolled over in her sleep, her blond fur had came in thicker over the night.
Teodor sat up, carefully so he would not wake Amanda. A mixed-breed hound dog laid a few feet away. A pile of clothes supported it's chin. Teodor chuckled. He crawled over to the dog and took the clothes. Some of them still had clothes pins on them.
The dogs would not understand what a human needed to wear. But they had done a good job in getting a wide selection. Teodor picked through the clothes and found a shirt and pants that weren't too large. Amanda rolled over and sighed. Teodor brought some of the clothing over to her.
She looked through the pile, and found a dress that was too big for her. “I wonder what happened after we left?” She asked.
Teodor shrugged. “Who cares?”
“We're back to square one.”
“It looks that way.”
“And I am hungry.”
Teodor stood up. “I'll go see what I can find.”
He ran off into the woods. As he crossed the man made trails, he found himself in the abandoned village. On the steps of a house, with faded siding, sat a familiar face.
Teodor laughed. “Perun?”
Perun laughed. His sandy brown hair hung around his shoulders. He wore a leather vest and pants. Perun would have fitted into one of Chaser's parties. Except Teodor knew that Perun would have drank all of them under the table.
“I saw you arrive last night,” Perun said.
Teodor blushed. He covered his genitals.
Perun laughed. “Don't worry, I gave you privacy.” His eyes twinkled. “You can uncover yourself, I don't care you are nude.”
“What are you doing here?” Teodor asked.
“I live here. Going to sleep soon.” Perun stood up. His feet were the only part of his body that gave away that he was not human. He stood on his toes, with his ankle high behind. They looked almost like Teodor's feet when he was in his wolf form.
“Winter's coming,” Perun said.
“Close.” Perun came over to Teodor. “What have you been doing lately?”
“Trying to survive. I need to find some food.”
Perun nodded. He made a strange noise. Three rabbits hopped out into the clearing. “How about those?”
Teodor smiled. “Perfect. Let me get Amanda.”
Perun nodded. “I miss her. You were lucky to end up with her. I never had a chance.”
“If I remember right, if they are female, you want them.”
Perun waved his hand. “But she is your's. You don't have to worry about me.”
“What about when we met?”
“I could tell she was going to be your's, even then.”
The rabbits sat nibbling the grass. Teodor pointed to them. “Skin them, I'll be back.”
Teodor ran back to Amanda. She opened her mouth in surprise at the news Perun was in the woods. “I haven't seen him since that night. I'm surprised he stayed.”
“Me too, but then Greenwoods has everything he would want.”
“Wait, do you think he is the guy?”
“The guy the co-eds try to find in the woods.”
Teodor shook his head. “What are you talking about?”
“One of Chaser's girlfriends told me that there is a guy that lives in Greenwoods, that some women have sex with.”
Teodor laughed. “I wouldn't put it pass him.”
He took Amanda's hand and walked back to the house. Perun had two of the rabbits skinned and gutted, laying on the porch, the other cooked on a spit over a small fire.
“Being a lycanthrope suits you, Amanda,” Perun said as they approached. “Your tits are perkier.”
To Teodor's surprise she did not get angry, instead she went over to Perun and kissed his hairy cheek. “Always the charmer,” she said.
Perun threw Teodor a rabbit. “Dig in.”
He handed Amanda her rabbit. She ripped a long strip of flesh off it's hind leg. “I am so used to the meat already butchered,” she said.
“This ain't so bad,” Teodor said. "I would never expected that this place existed."
“It's a nice place,” Perun said. "I keep it hidden."
“I'm surprised you didn't go back to Europe,” Teodor said.
“Why didn't you?”
Amanda wiped the rabbit blood off her face with her arm. “Did you ever want to go into the base again?” she asked.
Perun's face turned dark. Teodor thought he heard thunder. “Maybe to piss on it,” Perun said.
“Steopa's living there,” Teodor said.
“Has he lost all reason?” Perun said. He turned the rabbit on the spit. “Besides I can't go, something is wrong. I don't know what. But it's an old fear. Stalking in these woods.”
“What are you talking about?” Teodor asked.
“Something moved into the woods, I can't find it. But it's old and angry. I looked for it all summer, but now that fall is here. I have to sleep and it will still be out there.”
“What do you think it is?” Amanda asked.
“Something bad, something I haven't felt in a long time.” Perun threw some herbs on the rabbit. “Not since my homeland. Another hunter, but a sport hunter.”
Teodor noted the vile in Perun's voice.
“Where are you going now?” Perun asked.
“Not sure,” Teodor said.
“Too many in the woods now.” Perun sat back from the flames. “I would love to have you stay here, but the others would have to agree.”
Amanda glanced around at the old homes. She sighed. “Most of these places look unsafe.”
“They are, it keeps the curious away.”
“We have to find another place to stay. Winter is coming. These places don't look warm. And don't suggest the old base.”
“Well, we could go back to town.” Teodor suggested. “See what we can find.”
“Are you sure?” Perun asked. “There is plenty of room.”
Amanda gave Perun a sorry look. “I would like to have a TV, stupid I know.”
Perun shook his head, then patted Amanda's knee. “It will always be here for you.”
They finished their meals. Teodor had to admit that one rabbit tasted better than all the steaks he had eaten in the last few years. There was something about meat in which the blood had not cooled yet. It seemed to have more flavor.
Amanda made a bag out of one of the larger shirts that the dogs had brought them. She started to put her albums in the makeshift bag then she laughed.
“What is it?” Teodor asked.
“I grabbed some of Chaser's too,” she said.
“Which ones?” Teodor asked.
“Does it matter?”
