It’s snowy and the body is covered in snow. The sheriff has a go at her some more because that didn’t get old last chapter. She falls over again and is furious at everyone for laughing at her. She never questions how stupid she was, but there you go.
The body is all partially eaten and shit. After noticing that the body has been ripped open, and there are claw marks all over the body, Anita thinks that no blade did this! She’s so clever. The stomach of the body has been removed, potentially eaten. The crime scene is incredibly clean, and there’s very little blood anywhere. Anita thinks this must be because the assailant ate it all but it sounds to me like the body was dumped.
Anita thinks it might have been a dragon – but they’re not native in the US – or a gargoyle – but man eating gargoyles only live in France. Can’t have anything dangerous and interesting that might oppose vampires in America.
Hmmm…. impossible (apparently) crime scene and it’s just been revealed that vampires can fly? I wonder where this is leading! It’s so obvious that it was a shapeshifter hiding in a tree!
I feel I will have a lot of use from this gif.
Anyway, all lycanthropes are shapeshifters, but not all shapeshifters are lycanthropes. It’s some sort of family guardian bullshit, much like the unfortunate Meyer wolves. It doesn’t read as making much sense.
“There are swanmanes.”
No, seriously, what is that. I have never heard of that. Although I’m not sure how Anita knows that a shapeshifter did this, and not a werewolf or a really unfortunate human.
reading on Anita talks about avian weres. is a swanmane a swan werewolf? i really hope not because that’s really stupid.
Anita then has to know why the sheriff thought this was a bear attack. Obviously, on seeing a corpse covered with animal claw marks one ought to automatically assume that a shapeshifter did it. Anything else is just silly. She automatically thinks that the sheriff is trying to hide something.
I have a feeling I’m not going to like this plot.
