'Red Moon Rising' [PG] Mary Campbell

Title: Red Moon Rising
Character: Mary
Rating: PG, gen
Length: 100 words
Disclaimer: Supernatural belongs to the CW.
Author's Notes: Written for elliemurasaki's menstruation prompt at the spn_bitesized Bad Moon Rising challenge.
Summary: Mary's body had its own sense of priorities.

Mary woke to bloody thighs and dark-wet sheets one summer night when she was thirteen. She reported it to her parents right away, like she would any injury.

Mom hugged her, whispering, "Now you're a woman, honey." She gave Mary a hot water bottle and dabbed up the thick red gunk with some linen for a protective charm.

Dad sucked his teeth. "The Quella would smell you coming a mile away. Guess your first hunt will have to wait a little longer."

Mary wondered at her body's timing, and decided that maybe, just maybe, becoming a woman was more important.

I like that! Although I'm rolling my eyes at Samuel. First hunt'll have to wait about five days...jerk.

Nicely done. :)

Can you see that man holding a hunt five days so his daughter can join in? Thanks, ficwriter1966!

Oh, Samuel- what a jackass.

Yes Mary, good for you. There ARE more important things than hunting.

Oooh, I love stories with Mary. And I really love that you had Deanna save the blood for a protective charm, it's great on so many levels that you did that. Awesome.
