As a werewolf striving to exist harmoniously amidst human society, I had always known that my life would be fraught with difficulties. However, when my beloved significant other, Eric, proposed to me with a ring fashioned from pure silver, I found myself facing an unprecedented conundrum. Though I yearned to pledge my eternal devotion to him, accepting the ring would ultimately place me in grave peril.

Silver, as I'm sure you are aware, is lethal to my kind, and the thought of wearing such a ring was simply inconceivable. And yet, how could I possibly decline his proposal without raising suspicion or arousing his ire?

"Dearest Lena," Eric murmured softly, his voice trembling with emotion as he proffered the ring. "Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?"

My heart ached as I looked into his eyes, seeing only love and devotion reflected in their depths. How could I deny him? And yet, I knew that I had no other choice.

Summoning all of my courage, I took a deep breath and replied, "Eric, my love for you knows no bounds, but I am unable to accept this ring. You see, I have a severe allergy to silver, and wearing it would result in a most unpleasant reaction."

Eric's face fell, his expression shifting from one of joy to one of concern. "Oh, Lena, I had no idea. I'm so sorry."

I could sense the disappointment radiating from him, and my heart shattered at the thought of causing him pain. However, I knew that my decision was for the best, and I held firm in my resolve.

But then, a thought occurred to me. Perhaps there was another way. Perhaps I could accept the ring, and simply not wear it. Yes, that was it. I could keep it hidden away, safe from harm, and Eric would be none the wiser.

Feeling a sense of relief, I smiled brightly and said, "But fear not, my darling. I shall cherish this ring always, even if I am unable to wear it."

Eric's face lit up once more, his eyes sparkling with joy. "Thank you, Lena. You have made me the happiest man in the world."

For a moment, everything was perfect. And then, without warning, the twist came. Eric's face contorted, his expression twisting into something dark and malevolent.

"You foolish creature," he hissed, his body beginning to shift and contort before my very eyes. "Did you really think you could hide your true nature from me?"

My blood ran cold as I watched in horror as Eric transformed into something otherworldly, something dark and terrifying. And then, without warning, he lunged at me, his razor-sharp claws extended.

I barely had time to react before everything went black, the world fading into darkness as I felt his teeth sinking into my flesh. As the world grew dim, I could hear his voice whispering in my ear.

"Welcome to the pack, my love."

:( I interpret this as having ended negatively. You did not prepare me for that… Well done.
