Lindsey McInerney Walking home alone always put the willies up Beth. She hated the way all the unlit windows looked like hundreds of dark eyes all staring at her and the way the street lights glow cast ominous shadows everywhere. It was almost eleven o'clock on a December night and once again Beth was walking home alone. She'd been at her friend Donna's house watching a film and as usual she'd spent her bus money on crisps at the shop. The worst part of walking home was walking across the field, cutting through the field cut ten minutes off Beth's journey and on a dreary night like this, she wanted to get home as quickly as she could.

There was a knock at the door. Beth dragging her aching body off the floor slowly went to answer it. Opening the door, Beth was met with a sad looking police officer. "Its not good news I'm afraid" he spoke softly. "We've found the man that saved you but he was dead before we arrived". Beth burst into a flood of tears. "Where's the wolf?" Beth asked.
