"I'm scared!!!" I wailed in horror as the timer hit zero.
My body convulsed in pain when it started to crack and pop loudly in the most disgusting way as my body started to reshape itself. My ankles started to raise up further into the air as the bottom of my feet were pushed towards the front of the feet causing me to stand on the balls of my feet (even though I was still laying on my bed). As I started to cry uncontrollably from the pain my smaller toes had started to merge together and grow in size as my feet became digitigrade. I could hear my parent's cries of a variety of different emotions but I was in too much pain to notice that much. My pinkie and ring fingers had started to merge together as my hands became larger and more menacing looking. My hands and feet started throbbing as the nails on them seemed to crack as bloody silver claws shot out from them, tearing at my bed sheets as I started throbbing in pain. Crying "Make it stop!" and "Someone help me!" over and over again, I felt a pain in my spine as it started to grow and multiply in bones as it made me grow a bloody (bloody as in blood) tail, increase the length of my body, and increase the length of my neck. Someone could've easily have just lance me through my entire body with the lance having an extremely corrosive acid on it. My spine had shot out fierce, bloody spikes from every bone in my spine and tail. I was losing a lot of blood and started feeling faint but I couldn't pass out even if I wanted to. My eyes started burning as I felt a third eye lid appear and my eyes change color from a green to a red color and slit pupils. My body started popping and cracking (along with a few few sickening organ sounds) a lot more now as my main body started changing. I was getting bigger as more muscles started forming and my internal organs started rearranging, changing, stretching, contracting, and even ones that disappear and forming out of nowhere. My pelvis bone cracked as it changed shape to accomidate my new body. My skin had still not changed yet but I had a feeling that it would be last. I threw up as my organs were in the middle of their change and all of my teeth came out and started to dissolve away from something. I cried out in agony as blood covered teeth shot into place. They were sharp and pointy and I noticed that I had fangs in my mouth now. I felt my nose and mouth merge as they sprouted out into a long muzzle with my eyes now at the sides but were still able to see fully forward. My ears moved to the top of my head and became long and pointy. My tongue became flattened, long, and forked as I yelled in pain. It turned out that my yell came out as a loud roar of pain instead. Almost last but certainly not least, I felt something like extra arms covered in the last of my human blood grow from my back very slowly and painfully. The "arms" were long and had a webbing coming from its long "fingers" and were somewhat lightweight. The necklace on me had stayed put the entire time and even adapted its chain length and size to match the change on my body. Realization hit me like a landslide hitting the world's biggest supply of TNT. The black stone on the necklace wasn't a stone, it was a scale! I thought through my pain. My skin had started to burn like a thousand suns as I watched, teary eyed, as my only thing left of my human body left me and was replaced with black scales. My wing membraines turned a dark maroon color and my underside had turned into a silver color just like my claws. One last pain came as all of the new nerves and muscles started to attach themselves to my spinal chord and brain. When it was all over, I wept from the pain in my own blood. My black hair had all fallen out, my birthmark that was shaped like a star on my right arm had gone, and everything else about me had disappeared. My parents had freaked out and run out of the room, probably calling 911 or something. With a sniffle, I slowly gathered my things as I sorted what I would need now since I was a dragon...
My pack now held only pictures of my family, my stuffed dragon named "Flamy" (I was like four when I got it), the first aid kit, my cell phone (even if it was harder to push the buttons now), and some other things. I was about to leave when I saw the note with the strange writing on it actually legible now.
Lance, I'm sorry that it had to come to this but there is a great need for you and in order for you to help us we needed you to assume this form. I know that we could've asked you but you would have thought of us as crazy. I hope you can forgive us for doing this to you but it was neccessary. Give it time to get used to your new body but I would suggest that you leave immediately from your home before you get captured. Be quick!
I was dumbfounded, everything is happening all at once and I could barely keep up. I looked at my room for one last time before picking up my backpack. My bed was covered in blood and torn to pieces, not to mention demolished under my weight. Before I left the room I heard that I got a message on MSN. I saw that it was from Dragon937.
So, how was it?
This got me infuriated, how DARE he do this to me!
How was it? HOW WAS IT!?!?! I've lost my humanity no thanks to you! Who do you think you are anyway?
I'm just a person who is trying to do what's best for my people.
This got me more confused and angry.
YOUR people? What about MY life? My life is now ruined thanks to you! I would eat you while watching you slowly die right now if I was there!!!
I was shocked at what I just put down. That's not like me at all...
I'm afraid that won't be happening. You see, you aren't the only one of your kind and, since you're still new to your body, you wouldn't stand a chance but seeing as how you typed that down without thinking, I'll let it slide this time. Next time, however, I expect more respect than what you just showed me. Goodbye.
He logged out leaving me dazed. It took me a while to snap out of it but when I did I heard a faint arguement.
"But Dave he's our son!"
"He's a monster now Jenny! He probably doesn't even remember his humanity anymore!" I heard him loading the shotgun that he kept for emergencies.
"Dave, please! Give him a chance! Maybe he still knows who he is!" My mom sounded desperate.
I carefully walked past my older sister's room to get to the front door, knowing that she would not be pleased if she found a dragon that was slightly taller than my human 5'8 by a good two feet and four inches in front of her door. Things weren't going well for me today at all. I heard her decide to wake up from her nap and open the door. "Crud..." Was all I could say as she screamed at the top of her lungs. I had nowhere left to go as I became trapped in my own house. She went to grab her stun gun when my dad ran out of his room and prepared to fire.
"Please, dad don't!" I saw the stunned reaction on his face which caused his hands to tremble slightly. I sighed just as my sister shot her stun gun at me at full power. Grunting in the paralysis caused by it, I managed to say, "Stop Stacy!" She didn't let up as she continued on with the intent to kill me.
