Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Events that change the world seem like they should come with a herald or harbinger, but that's not how it happens. The moments that mean the most happen in the pauses between breaths - easy to miss if no one knows they should be looking.

And in that tiny closet, with the humans I'd nearly slaughtered murmuring just outside the door, I put my head to my knees and shook with silent sobs. For the horror of what I was, what I had almost let myself become. For the shame of my lost humanity, even if it was for just a moment. And for Zeke. I cried for the boy I had lost, the human who'd believed I was more than a monster, even if I couldn't believe it myself.

"Just what this town needs: another damn weirdo. If your mom's a witch, what does that make you? Harry Potter?" "Mike," Carmel says. "Don't be a jerk." "I think that's a lot to ask," I say softly, but Mike ignores me and asks Carmel why she's bothering to hang around such a freak. It's very flattering.
