Prompt: A Lunch Date Gone Wrong
Words: eruption, salad, fire, career, assume, roller skate, draw, promise, full moon, sweet
“Tell us everything that happened.”
I took a second to draw in a deep breath. The whole situation was so stupid, and now the Special Investigations Units of Police and Fire were involved.
“Ma’am? Are you okay? Did he…?”
I blinked and focused on the EMT next to the cop. “No. Nothing like that, promise.” Then the story poured out.
So I’m not proud of it, but I tried online dating. After roller skating around the basics, I agreed to meet him for lunch. I’m not completely stupid. I didn’t assume everything was completely safe, after all this was basically a blind date.
We met at a sweet little sidewalk café near my job, because seriously? I don’t make a career of misjudging people. He was everything his profile said he was. The photo even matched. I didn’t even taste my salad.
That’s why I didn’t see the signs of the eruption. I mean, who knew the full moon would change a guy in the middle of the day?
Now there was a werewolf loose in town, and I was stuck with the check. I will never online date again.
