St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves II – Georgiann Carlson

the door is a dead giveaway
the claw marks
the double doorknobs
one for humans
a lower one
for wolves
it’s a well worn door
that’s been refinished
once or twice
but it usually looks like this
in the beginning
the adults at St, Lucy’s
tried to change the girls
who were taken against their will
they tried to make them more presentable
more like females who had been raised by humans
but it was an impossible task
the girls loved the wolves
and snuck them into the Home on a daily basis
but while the girls always smelled a bit like wet dogs
they were happy
and very well adjusted
they were also healthy
and physically fit
in the extreme
they never slept on their beds
choosing instead to sleep in a heap on the floor
they preferred their meals raw
and freshly caught
they refused to have their nails trimmed.
and absolutely no one
stayed at St. Lucy’s more than a week
before escaping back into the wild
you can sometimes see the girls
in cities and on farms
hunting
or looking for a mate
they’re hyper alert
fast
and deadly
but they are family oriented
and quite sweet
St Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves
still stands
but today
it’s only residents are
wolves and the girls they are raising
so the name is finally fitting
