In the Cretaceous, Connor discovered the true meaning of ‘darkness’. There was no orange glow of cities, no artificial lights. There was just black, shadows, and the infinity of stars in the night sky.

On those nights, Connor understood early humanity’s fear of the dark.

When there was a full moon it was surprising how much light it cast, bathing the forest in a soft, silver glow. It offered a sense of safety, enticing him out of hiding and into the night.

Connor knew the temptress moon was lying.

Fear of the dark wasn’t a weakness. It was basic survival.

Thanks! I spent most of the week resisting the urge to write werewolf!Becker, but luckily this idea came along instead and saved me from having to write that!

*shivers* Great prompt fill!

Thanks! It was this or werewolf!Becker, so I think we all had a lucky escape that this one won!
