The moon hung low on the horizon huge and very bright. Walking down the road, the woman felt as though someone or something was watching her. She tried to shake off the feeling and kept walking. Cara just had to get out and clear her head. She and Ryan were fighting more and more. The fights were becoming more vicious and hurtful. Cara was tired of the arguments and wanted to make some changes in her life. All Cara wanted was some peace and balance in her life.
Deep in thought she didn’t notice the shadowy figure moving in unison with her down the road. Cara rounded the bend and once again felt another presence. She looked back over her shoulder but didn’t see anything. Turning back around Cara came face to face with a tall ominous figure. In the glow of the moonlight it seemed as if his eyes glowed in the dark staring intently into hers. She tried to take a step back but was frozen in the road unable to move away from the fierce gaze.
As the figure reached toward her, Cara tried to scream but no sound came out of her open mouth. Instead the figure leaned in and pulled her toward him lowering his head toward hers. Cara felt his touch so tender against her lips moving down toward her throat, wanted to scream and be free but at the same time felt so alive, tingling with the anticipation of what was to come. She felt his mouth on her throat caressing the skin, then a tingling sensation and suddenly she felt light and faraway. As her life dimmed away she looked skyward and suddenly wished she hadn’t gone on the walk.

Cara wanted some changes in her life and looks like she got more than she bargained for – to be trapped here for eternity and hunted down like her lover, the Beast.
