Gina the Wolfgirl - Part 4/4It was a beautiful day in the forest and Jo wasn't about to let it go by unexplored. After a lunch of turkey sandwiches that Gina had snitched from a deli in town, Jo felt the hiking bug bite her hard. "C'mon, let's go for a walk," she'd suggested, to which Gina yawned the largest yawn that Jo had ever seen and then curled up on the bed for a nap. "Suit yourself," she said before setting off alone. She could hear Gina snoring before she'd even left the cave.Gina the Wolfgirl - Part 4/4 by naked-natalie
As she walked amongst the trees she thought of how things were unfolding. Yesterday the two had declared their love for one another, but that's about as far as anything went. Gina seemed relieved to have made her confession, as if a weight had been lifted from her ample chest. Jo, on the other hand, just had more to think about. She'd never been in a real relationship before. Leaving home when she had didn't really provide the atmosphere for healthy social situations, after all. Sure, she'd flirted, even kissed boys, but that was t
Gina the Wolfgirl - Part 3/4"I dunno," Jo said. "What do you want to do today?" Ever since she'd joined up with Gina, Jo found that each day was more like being at summer camp than being homeless. In just the week since they'd met that evening at the river near Shadowville they'd been swimming a bunch of times, been on walks, lounged in the sun, and even roasted some marshmallows that Gina had procured over the fire. Of everything they'd done, however, one thing hadn't come up again: Gina's amazing superpowers. Jo had thought she'd have been more a show-off, but aside from rushing back and forth to bring food, she didn't seem to use them. Jo had seen the ten cent demonstration, but her ever curious nature kept her wondering about Gina's origins. She hoped that one day they would be close enough for Gina to tell that story (even if it were acted out in charades).Gina the Wolfgirl - Part 3/4 by naked-natalie
Gina pondered the initial question and answered it by scootching closer to Jo and laying down in front of her, the signal that she wanted to be scratched

Gina looked up as Jo unrolled her sleeping bag. "It's soaked through..."
Gina took the bag from Jo, and draped it over a large root that hung from the cave roof directly over the fire. "And where do I sleep now?" Jo asked.
Gina sat down on her bed, and patted herself, before holding out her arms. "You?" Jo asked. Well, why not? She's big, soft, cuddly...probably be very warm and comfy...
Jo allowed Gina to take her in her arms, and soon she was snuggled up close next to the wolfgirl. Suddenly, Jo felt safe - really safe - for the first time in a long time.
"Goodnight, Gina." she whispered. The wolfgirl growled, before kissing Jo's forehead...
The forest just on the edge of town had become a familiar place for Megan. It had been her training ground, her playground, and now it would become something more. She and Natalie skidded to a stop deep amongst the trees, Megan's whole body bu

They called it Shadowville, a place where Shadow Peak's homeless population fell away out of sight into the darkness of the forest. People of all ages had at one time or another fallen to Shadowville, some as a temporary spot before rebounding back into society or, unfortunately, to stay. Some people just had nowhere else to go. A withered middle-aged man sat around the small campfire with a few other men and a single girl. He took a swig from his "liberated" bottle of wine as the girl stood up to take her leave of the group. "You goin' out alone 'gain, Jo?" he slurred, having been through a lot of wine today. "You sho' you don't want no protecshion?"
"I can handle myself, Calzo," she said.
"You know we worry about ya," another of the men said as he ate from a can of beans 'n franks that he'd cooked over the fire. "Animals prowlin' around and all."
Joanna Baker didn't reply, instead heading off into the twilight with her frayed backpack. A
