My friend and I were walking in the streets. We spent almost the whole evening in the disco with our girlfriends. They were too drunk to stand, and so some friends brought them home. We decided to walk, because we were a little tipsy, and we wanted some fresh air.
I never saw Stacy so drunk in my life
Thats because you met her just a week ago
We reached a small square. There was an old church in that place
it was very creepy, but since we were a little, tipsy
we both said:
lets take a look
We went to the front door of the church, but before we could get in, and old man told us:
I wouldnt get in there if I were you
We turned to the old man, and Jeff, my friend, said:
The old man walked closer to us, and he said with his deep and slow voice:
The church is haunted
people say that there are ghost in there that launch curses to the people who get in their house
that sounds great
come on Jack
lets go investigate
I was starting to get sober again, and I told him:
I dont think is a good idea
its late and
Oh come on
are you a pussy or what?
The old man stepped forward
Listen to your friend
that place is evil
Shut up old man
Jeff said, pushing him away. The old man felt, and rolled on the ground. When he got up, he told us angrily:
You will regret your decision
Then he walked away. Jeff turned toward me, and he said:
what are we waiting for?
He opened the churchs main door, and walked in. I had no choice; I followed him.
The old man was right
there was something evil in that place; I could feel it. However, Jeff did not notice that, he was not sober yet. We walked toward the altar of the church; there was nothing on it and nothing anywhere
that happen to the abandoned place, what is abandoned
can be taken.
theres nothing in this place
I thought that churches have gold stuff in it.
This place is abandoned
.do you think that everything valuable was going to stay here? Now please
lets go away
maybe theres some kind of secret passage down there
He pointed at a small door.
Now youre being ridiculous
just a few minutes
He walked toward the door, and I followed him. He opened it, revealing a very small room
the priests room.
no secret passage
now we can
The door closed behind, leaving us in the darkness
since there was no window, and it was night. We did not speak for a long times
we were trying to realized what was just happened.
Then suddenly, I heard Jeff screaming.
I could not see anything, so I searched for something to illuminate the room. I found what looked like an old lantern
and a somehow, I managed to light it. I turned toward Jeff, and I saw that his whole body was bleeding
there was blood everywhere
and his skin was being tear apart, revealing what looked like
I tried to take a closer look, but suddenly I felt an immense pain in my whole body. I dropped the Lantern, and it broke. I could not see what was going on, but I could feel it. It was like having a thousand needles destroying my skin. I could not help but scream, and tear my skin apart, and with it my flesh. The pain was so much
that I blacked out after a while.
The time passed slower in the reign of my mind
I had no dreams
nothing. I woke after a while
the first breath I took was like the benediction of god itself. I opened my eyes
scanning the environment. It was dark
I could see. Every object in the room had a strange white fog around it, and I could perfectly see it.
I stood up, and I immediately felt something wrong in my body. I looked at my arms, and even if I could not see the color of my skin
I could see the shape of my hand. It has only three fingers; ending with deadly claws
Same with my feet.
My head was different too; I touched it, and it felt like a muzzle. I touched my teeth
they were no more teeth
but deadly fangs. I felt something protruding from my shoulders; I reached for it
there were like another pair of arms on my back
.wings. I felt something protruding from my tailbone too
I immediately realized that I had a tail.
I knew what happened to me
it was clear
I turned into a dragon
a shadow dragon.
I looked around, and I saw another draconic creature lying on the floor
I assumed it was Jeff. I shook him
trying to wake him up. He jumped on his feet almost instantaneously, yelling:
.GET AWAY, ITS NOT MY FAULT
Jeff calm down
I grabbed him by the arm, and I shook him again. He calmed down, and he looked at me
Jack? Its that you?
I left him
I guess you should look at yourself
Jeff panicked for a while at first
but then he calmed down
and he sat down on the floor.
And now? What should we do? What should we tell our parents?
We will invent something
why dont wee look at the positive aspects of the situation?
I said sitting down too.
we can fly
see trough the darkness
and we are cool
That doesnt help
We did not talk for a few minutes. Then Jeff stood up, and he said:
we must at least try to find a way out of this situation
I stood up too.
What happened in the following days was nearly unimaginable. We walked back home
and no one said nothing to us
just someone said: Good costumes. And when we went back home
we explained our parents the situation. Jeff parents revealed dragon fanatics and they were almost euphoric. My parents simply understood the situation and told me that they love me because of my soul
not my body.
And in the following days, we let the population know us
the shadow dragons. They accepted us
that were something that I never believed possible.
And so now we here
our life did not change so much, still our old life
but in a different body. But I was suspicious
why we had such an incredible luck?
I understood why a month after our transformation. We were suppose to make an exam that was going to decide our life
we prepared ourselves for a whole year. And you know what? We failed.
And in the end we went working in a fast food
cocking hamburgers with our flame breath
just to impress our clients.
DID YOU THINK THAT WE WERE LUCKY?
