Creative Story: Lycanthrope

You think you know a person. You think you know them, right up until
the day they come out and tell you about all their deep, dark secrets and this
whole other life they've been leading that you never even knew about. At least,
that was the case with my good friend, Lyle Lawrence Kingly.
My name, for the information of the curious, is Niles Jameson. I knew
Lyle Kingly for a good many years and was actually an associate of his for a
