I didn’t leave when my family called me an abomination, then sent me to conversion camp because I liked women.
I left after a gang of my brother’s friends had descended upon me, yet my family shrugged, hoping I had been cured.
Then I met my werewolf wife. She knew all about being an abomination.
When she says she needs space, I don’t mind.
Because the moon was full when my brother’s friends died gruesome deaths.
Because my werewolf wife birthed six werepups, who became six babies, whom I love more than life… Whom no one will ever call abominations.
