A wolf doesn't always appear with pointed ears, ragged fur, or snarling fangs. Sometimes the wolf appears as a teenage boy. 

That's how it was for my wolf; a boy with dark, glinting eyes and a thirst for excitement. And I was the little girl in red, clueless and hopelessly in love with the wolf, until I realized - too late - that his sharp-toothed danger could swallow me whole.

[This is my entry for @target's contest #OnceUponNow. It is based upon the fairytale Little Red Riding Hood. If you wish to support this story, please remember to vote on the first chapter (prologue) during the contest's voting phase - which begins June 14, 2016 and ends June 21, 2016.]

Red hair really does stand out as something special. And you vividly capture the color as well as the significance. It'll be interesting to see how you work in "Little Red Riding Hood." There is indeed more out there to fear than just sunsets...
