In my book there is a major scene where everything in my character's life is turned upside down. It does involve werewolves and conspiracies. She is 17 and has been involved with various fighting sports - its well explained in the book as why she is trained. While my main character is in her room - which is the attic with the pull down door and everything - she is listening to music via her head phones. Her 2 siblings are down stairs when their father arrives in a panic. The main lead is oblivious to what's going on. The older sister is heading up the stairs when a werewolf breaks through the back door and kills the father. The youngest runs towards the stairwell and is kill and the oldest sister is kill on the top floor. The main character has no clue this is going on as her music is all the way up. What catches her attention is the thudding she feels on the walls. When she descends from the attic she finds the bloody mess on the second floor. She begins to cry but steels herself and is filled with hatred. She thinks a murderer - a human one - is in her house. She at first attempts to leave but her father's body is blocking the front door. Not being able to handle it she attempts to sneak towards the back. She hears a noise from a door besides the back door and grabs a fallen metal lamp. Its something to use as a weapon. That's when she is attacked and barely gets away. She runs up the stairs is attacked from behind. The werewolf hits off the wall and is dazed for a second as is the main character. The main character recovers quickly and runs towards the stairs, throwing the lamp at the head of the creature. As she climbs she is bitten on the leg and grabs a ski pole from a topped over box on the floor of the attic. She grabs and turns as she is wrenched down and stabs the creature in the eyes. It takes off and she eventually passes out. My question is this... Should she have done something different? Reacted in a better way or tried to take a different route? I know werewolves are pretty fictitious and all but I am trying to keep my story more realistic. Any tips?
