Wolf on the ferry…

A little bit of what I am working on

This is from “Shadow Ghouls of Nergus”, which is #4 in the epic Dark Fantasy series BENJAMIN JONES.

“He  saw  himself  changing  into  a  wolf,  because  he  was  the  leader  of  the  pack  and  he  already  knew  and  felt  that  very  wellHe  indeed  felt  proud  of  his  change.  Perhaps  he  should’ve  felt  fear  at  such  transformation,  but  he  did  not  because  the  essence  of  the  wolf  lived  already  in  his  mind…

Maybe  it  had  lived  inside  him  ever  since  he  had  been  taken  by  wolves  as  a  baby  (see  series  #1).  But,  as  the  incredible  alteration  took  place,  his  strength  grew  and  grew.  His  mind  merged  with  the  animal’s,  and  then  it  all  became  clearer…

The  wolf  saw  everything.  The  wolf  did  not  overthink  anything.  The  wolf  feared  nothing.  The  wolf  allowed  instinct  to  guide  him.  Benjamin  Jones  was  the  wolf  now,  and  the  journey  into  his  subconscious  was  understood…

Whoooaaa!”  exclaimed  Shadow,  then  flew  to  him  and  started  touching  him.  “You’re  a  wolf,  Ben!  And  you’re  really  fluffy.  So  fluffy.  Yeah,  so—”…

…The  wolf,  who  was  now  Ben,  growled  softly  and  then  took  off.  There  was  a  pier  or  dock  really  close  to  them,  right  on  the  other  side  of  some  trees  and  bushes.  He  stood  on  the  planks  of  the  pier’s  end  and  became  really  silent.

He stared  straight  into  the  mist  above  the  waters,  waiting  for  something  or  someone  to  arrive.  Wolf  boy’s  soul  and  Shadow  came  to  him  instantly,  then  they  waited  with  him  for  several  seconds.  Nobody  said  anything…

“So…”  Shadow  finally  started.  “Do  you  have  fleas,  Ben??  Do  you??  Do  you??  Because  Kushim  gave  me  a  book,  and  I  read  the  book,  and  the  book  said  some  wolves  have  fleas.  So,  do  you  have  fleas,  Ben??  Do  you??  Do  you??”…

The  wolf  seemed  so  focused  and  alert  that  nothing  disturbed  him.  He  just  remained  still  while  peering  through  the  night  and  haze  above  water…

Shhh…”  shushed  the  hero’s  soul  while  pointing  at  an  approaching  form  beyond  the  mist.  “Shadow,  look—”…

The  form  pierced  through  the  heavy  mist  and  soon  became  a  welcomed  shape.  The  simple  boat,  more  like  a  big  gondola,  moved  with  ease  over  the  calmed  waters  of  the  lake.  And  they  noticed  that  someone  was  driving  it  with  great  skill,  and  so  he  was  using  a  rowing  oar  to  gracefully  get  to  them… 

The  ferryman  or  creature  soon  appeared  out  of  the  darkness,  and  they  saw  that  he  was  tall  and  shrouded,  and  they  also  saw  that  his  hands  were  not  there  and  that  his  face  was  emptiness  itself.”…


Hope you enjoyed that. I really like to make my characters and situations fun, not only for the reader but for me as the writer.
