I run through the woods, faster than the wind that is tugging at the ends of my dress. Shedding my clothes, I revel in a caress of the cold rain on my fevered skin. They are chasing me, with their axes and pitchforks raised high above their heads. Puny mortals, with their pitiful weapons and superstitious fears, do they really think they can catch me? One would think they would learn their lesson from the times before, from the stories the elders told them. As my fangs snap out and my skin splits on my back, I look up at my beloved moon and howl.
It is happiness enough to know one is superior to the fork people.
