Unholy Trinity: Legend of the Moon Children by Martin P. Fuller
Our church worships at the altar of the Unholy Trinity. Its gospels are delivered as a trio of dark drabbles, linked so that Three become One. All hail the power of the Three.
It was once part of our molten world, ejected and exiled when our solar system was young. Apart, but still linked to the chosen ones.
The planetoids revenge
The small gods challenge failed, consumed but not before ripping part of it conquerors body away, where it orbited, waiting, brooding, demanding a blood price.
The mystic light emerges
As the Moons rock cooled, a power grew. A weird force which oozed out of its heart, drifting towards the wounded Earth on reflected light.
Union of the light
The special light could not be filtered by dark storm cloud, or rock or roof. It found the special children, the wild, and changed them.
The curse of the moon gift
The Moon, torn from the body of the Earth, retained a link of mystic evil. Sunlight reflecting from its surface, gave out more than just photons. The light sought out the Moon children with a gift of change. Tooth, claw, fur, jaws of razor teeth, and a maddened insatiable savagery.
The Moon loves the wolf and the wolf adores its Mistress. The savage that is man fears the wolf, knows of the bite and the tearing sickle claw. That terror draws the Moon’s attention and dark influence. Certain mortals bear the dark honour of being disciples of the lunar queen.
The law of the werewolf
You cannot hide from the light or its malign influence. It seeks you out, invades your trembling mind, controls sinew and muscle. Bone bends to its command, reshaping, reforming. And the desire for the smell and taste of blood, the crush of teeth through flesh dominates your thoughts. Be wild, progeny of dark nature, seek out the living and survive. Never forget to give thanks to the Goddess who watches over you in the darkness. Howl out your vicious hymn, scratch your mark in the landscape. You that were once human, wear the skin of a worshiper of the moonlight.
