Turn around


            “This is preposterous,” Mary-Anne said as she bounced around in the carriage for quit sometime. “Why should I have to leave?” She continued and then leaned over and banged on the carriage wall, “Driver!” she called. “Driver, stop the carriage this instant!” She banged on the wall some more.


            The driver pulled on his harnesses and the carriage rolled to a stop. He then made his way to open the door, but Mary-Anne burst from the carriage holding her dress up as she stepped down the foot stairs before he had a chance to get down.

“Driver!” she huffed. “I demand that you tell me what is going on? And take me back home; have you the slightest idea as to why my husband would send me to my mother’s, when he knows the women and I do not get along?”

“No Mrs. but I was instructed to keep you away. It is all I know Madame.”

“Keep me away?” she was stunned at his remark. “What is he hiding?” she uttered under breath. “Driver, you will take me home now!”

“But Madame, it is getting close to dark and…” he paused.

“And what?” she tilted her head and her eyes demanding he speak.

He swallowed hard and spoke in a soft tone that was nearly a whisper, “That thing,” he began. “We mustn’t Mrs. Mr. McCabe’s orders were to keep you away from harm’s way.”

“Ah, so you do know. I don’t know what the fuss is all about, over a simple wolf.”

“It is no ordinary wolf Madame. Do you not know of the legends of the wolf man?”

“Werewolves.” She stepped up the stairs and huffed. “Now take me back home, I am not afraid of childish myths.” She scorned.

“I am afraid we must continue forward Madame, for it comes out… after dark.” His voice trembled.

She chuckled. “You are not afraid are you? Do you not have a gun? A man with your stature must carry a gun, in case of thieves and… werewolves.” She mocked. “I must remind you, driver. You are my servant as much as you are to my husband, and you will do as I tell you. Now, take me home. That is an order!” and then she sat down.

“Yes Mrs.” the driver replied and closed the door.
