A mariner's bell tolled through the fog that stretched long fingers through the worn fishing village huddled in the shelter of the cliffs. In one tiny cottage, Nisbeth tucked a thick patchwork quilt around her two small children. She moved to the shuttered window to peer out between the cracks in the weathered wood. Overhead the nimbus of the moon glowed through the mist.
A long howl echoed against the cliffs, rising over the sound of waves crashing against the rocky beach. As she watched, the mist receded, fingers drawing closed in a fist that grasped the end of the slick wood of the docks. The road that ran past her door stood empty of all life.
