As I drove home from the party I had no clue as to why I felt so strange. There was really no reason for it as I had felt good all evening. But you know how it is when you get sick, one second you're feeling fine and the next second you no longer feel human.
The longer I drove the more I became in touch with how I was feeling and that's when I realized that I was not sick per say, it was more like I felt edgy and nervous. I looked at myself in the rear view mirror and noticed that my eyes appeared quite bloodshot, but that was likely from the alcohol that I had drank. It was strange because I didn't drink that much and had never got bloodshot eyes before from too much alcohol. I continued to study my eyes in the mirror when I should have been focused on the road. I became a little freaked out at how dilated my pupils had become, it reminded me of my crazy cat named, "Loon".
I focused back onto the road and tried to forget about looking at my eyes in the mirror. But no matter how hard I tried I couldn't stop doing it. Finally I bent the mirror at an upward angle to eliminate it from my line of vision.
I kept driving. My body was getting hotter all the time and the skin on my face, neck and chest started to become extremely itchy. I started to scratch until I broke the skin and it started to bleed. I looked at the blood on my fingertips and wondered why this was happening to me. I unbuttoned my shirt to cool off a little and when that didn't help I rolled down the window. Nothing seemed to stop my temperature from rising.
My car then came around a long turn on the highway and headed out of a heavily wooded area and into a highway between open fields. Only minutes ago I had been driving into the darkness but now going in a different direction a giant full moon hung over the highway. I nearly hit the ditch due to its imposing stature. It looked so massive and so real as I could make out all of its craters and variations in colors that ranged from dark grey to pure white. I then wondered what was happening on the dark side of the moon. As a child when people said the dark side of the moon I thought the moon was flat like a coin.
I continued to stare and investigate the haunting and mystical presence of the moon and then I started to realize that many of the symptoms that I had been experiencing were similar to those that a person would feel when they had been subject to the powers of a full moon.
Every revolution of my car's wheel drew me closer to the full moon which was now so large that I could no longer see any blackness in the sky. My car started to speed up without me stepping on the gas. I tried to press the brakes but they would not work. I attempted to turn off the road but the steering wheel would not budge. My car was now racing down the highway at over 250 kilometers per hour. I started to feel my heart being pulled out of my body as the moon's magnetic pull became too much. My car started to vibrate madly and the wheels started to fly off. Seconds later my car had left the ground heading into orbit towards the moon.
Between the gravitational force of going into orbit and the heavy magnetic pull of the moon I knew I only had a few more seconds to live. I started to howl like a werewolf as the white moon blinded me.
The doctor then snapped off the blinding white overhead light and I heard him say to his assistant, "We've been getting a lot of this tonight. A man brought in claiming to be a werewolf. It must be the full moon."
