Weekend Writing Warriors

I'm participating in the Weekend Writing Warriors mini hop again. The deal is to post 8 sentences from a writing project, published or unpublished. Because a shape-shifter story just seems fitting this time of year, I'm offering another creepy bit from book 1 in the The Witchy Wolf and the Wendigo saga.
Time and creativity being what they are, I'll be taking a break from the Weekend Writing Warriors until after the holidays. I have gifts to make and not enough hours in the day for the rest. Until January, happy holidays and my best to you and yours!

my 8, then details follow:

Eluwilussit woke to find himself curled into a ball, his hands protectively covering his genitals. The fire was almost out. He had no idea how long he’d traveled for peyote tended to steal time. Retracing his visions as best he could, he remembered that he’d beat the wall of the White World with his fists, remembered too that he’d slashed himself to get the attention of its inhabitants. 

Sitting up, he was met with a stench that indicated he’d fouled himself under Mescalito’s influence. Checking himself over in the light of the small blaze, he found his skin smooth, clean and otherwise unmarred. Perhaps the stink was only a memory lingering in his mind like the rest. The Red World and its inhabitants were foul. 

Behind the scenes: Under the influence of psychotropic mescalin, Eli attempts to enter the White Spirit world but found himself on the other side of the veil that divides the spirit realms -- in the hellish dessicated landscape of the Red Realm. Witnessing the shape-shifting abilities of Ash and their teacher Nawkaw through the veil that divides the spirit word, Eli becomes enraged and tries to draw their attention. Instead, the forsaken ones come.  He pays their price and receives a gift. Let's just say Eli has brought back more than a stench.

Based upon ancient Native American oral tradition and a surprising urban legend
