Why He Didn't Call
by Kat Beyer
"What have I become?" I asked myself in the mirror, but it was the moonlight that answered. It showed me my new sharp teeth and fur-rimmed eyes.
I thought I would be scared. I didn't expect to feel such relief. Tonight, no fluorescent lights; no cubicles with strange toys poking over the top, peering humorously into the next gray box over; no tired Friday jokes; no dates with someone who would rather I was a manager. No date tonight.
I watched myself forget how to use a cell phone--with these paws I couldn't have called her anyway.
