New Zealand, South Island
The Voice had been continuing monitoring the young dragon, whilst muttering incantations trying to progress the dragon's transformation.
well, well, well, it seems my hard work is going to pay off after all jests the dark voice as he discovers the young dragon's plans to hunt him down to reverse the transformation.
What's this? He says again, Looks like I won't need to interfere with the curse any more it's finally taking hold, Natural Flying instincts...the Dragons mind slowly taking control. The mysterious voice jested, clearly pleased with the discovery. I'll be waiting right here for you dragon
Hills up next to the Wallace Monument
The old man appeared at the foot of the hole which lead to the cursed cavern below, which had been fenced off to protect the public from falling into the cavern. The old man didn't bother with being cautious, he blasted a hole in the fence and glided down into the cavern.
One tap on the floor with his staff on the floor and the cavern walls burst into flame illuminating the whole underground cavern leading into the second chamber.
Hasn't changed much in 600 years he chuckled
As the old man entered the second chamber he immediately noticed the stone tablet had been removed. Fools He said angerly They are going to release the curse to the general population if they ain't careful....Still I can't worry about that just yet...I need to track down the young dragon before the curse fully takes hold and before he falls into HIS grasp He muttered a few spells and he knew next where to go. He Vanished from the spot and the cavern once again fell into darkness...
When I woke up the following morning I just lay there thinking about what I was about to take on. I had come home from college from the previous day, packed a few of the modified clothes the police had brought for me, I packed my laptop and a spare battery. I also phoned my dad and told him what I had told my mum, and wrote an
e-mail to send to all my friends.
So here I was ready to leave all I had to do is get up have some breakfast, grab my bag and take to the skies to face my fate. I just hoped it was going to be the end.
As I rolled over and climbed out of bed I immediately knew something wasn't right...I was walking on all fours.
oh shit this can't be right I Said, I was almost panicking.
I tried to stand up on 2 legs but found that impossible. Oh this can't be good I said
I made my way to the front room and picked up the phone. I was just glad that my front claws still had the opposable thumbs. I called my Mum
Hello? Came my mum's answer
Hi Mum it's me I said
phoning up to say your goodbye's? She asked
Well yes and no. Something happened over night I said
What? Mum asked sounding worried
Well you remember I said I was told this transformation was only half finished...Well I'm now walking on all fours I said
Oh god.... you weren't kidding about half finished transformation were you, and here was me gonna try and stop you leaving again. My said sounding very worried.
Believe me I wish I was kidding, with this development what little hope I had of continuing as normal is now gone I said
Okay then, You look after yourself you hear, And keep in touch. I love you Mum said
I love you too Mum, I've got everything packed. So I will keep in touch I said, and with that I hung up.
I spent the next half an hour getting some food in me before I left, which was a challenge as I had to force myself to try and stand on 2 legs to reach the top cupboard to grab the cereal. Which turns out I can just about hold my balance on 2 legs though had it not been for my now draconic body I probably would have resembled the Hunchback of Notre dame. But even then I could still tell my body had re-aligned and probably would continue to do so.
I then shoved on a set of jeans and shirt, grabbed my bag with my laptop, mobile money and passport...(Officer Denny had showed up yesterday with a new passport for me after informing the police of my plans last night). I was ready for the off, I took a deep breath and took to the air....
