Her Silver Chains by Jeremy A. TeGrotenhuis. Narrated by J.S. Arquin. #Fantasy #Werewolves #Podcast #Fiction #Flashfiction
"Eva, go and feed your sister."
I adore my sister when she is herself, but I tremble at my father's words. I go on stitching a button to my rag doll and pretend not to hear him. The scrape of his whetstone on the wood ax ceases.
He is wondering, I know, how much longer until my time comes.
