I knew that I am broken. I knew this without being fully aware of what was happening. I could hear Sam and Cole. I could not make out what they were saying, but I knew that it was not good.

They thought I am dying. I thought that I was. Now, I knew that I was becoming a wolf, one of them. The cure that had been protecting me is fading, fading fast. I knew that I could not fight it much longer.

The shiver had past. I could not linger as a human much longer. Soon, I must give into the wolf forever.

The hospital is a strange place. Even though it is a place of healing, a lot of dying happened me. Miracles also happened. I knew that both were going to happen to me. Part of me is going to die, but of me part will form some sort of miracle. It may even create something beautiful.

It is getting harder to hold on to me human self. I knew that I must give into the wolf. I could no longer fight it. I also knew that me very existence depended on this. If I want to live, I must give in.

My body is racing, faster and faster. The fire spreads throughout my body. I am shaking.

The chill is coming.

I take one final breath and give in.

It is over.

I am now a wolf.
