Everyone has dreams. Weather it be to be good at something or to do something amazing everyone has them. It was the same for me and a group of friends of mine. My name is Sean, I am a normal guy me and my crew was in my garage practicing our moves for our schools talent show. We were going to do a dance to Big time rush's song Elevate we even threw in a favor with an a/v guy to have us wired up with bungee cords for the song. Me I was the shortest one but I was still the leader. I didn't bite anyone's head off about small things but I still told them if they did something wrong. I was wearing my favorite t-shirt my black and red dragon guitar shirt. Basically it had a Gibson V-factor guitar with an anthro dragon playing it with that I was also wearing my black jeans. I was the only red head in the group but that's what made me well me.
Now the others in the group were Jake, Bryan, and Andy. We all hung out anytime. We were that group of friends that never argue at all. But there was only one thing we argued over and that was over our favorite animals. I had dragons cause I mean come on dragons who doesn't love them. Jake had his hair dyed grey to help to give a shout out to his animal of choice that being the wolf. He was wearing a regular grey t-shirt and grey worn out jeans with holes in random spots.
Bryan was a huge fan of foxes. In particular was his obsession over kitsunes. You know the Japanese spirit fox. He had black hair he also had glasses that were a broadcast of his good grades. While I was the leader, Bryan was the smart guy. He could tell you every part of a computer with out even opening it up. But he still was a good dancer. He was the only one of us that could pull of a spiral handspring to back flip. That's when he handsprings and when he launches he spins in a spiral form and he lands on his feet just to launch off seconds later into a back flip and land on his feet again. And wouldn't be in the least bit dizzy. Bryan was wearing his orange camo shirt with blue jeans.
Andy was a big fan of hawks. He was wearing a shirt with a picture of a hawk snatching up a fish for lunch he was also wearing his signature green jeans he played a game called, "Sonic Riders" and he is obsessed with Jet from it all because he was a hawk. Anytime he hears a hawk he pulls out his sketch pad and starts drawing the scene of it. And even with it moving when he finally finishes it looks like he took a picture with his phone. Yeah he is the artist of the group. Jake is our tech and game guy. Bryan is our smart one. While Andy was our artist.
But other than being the leader I was also the musician. I could play the beginning of through the fire and flames by Dragonforce on a real guitar no problem. We all been friends for like I think about ten years now. But we all had a shirt to represent our animal.
We were in my garage practicing our dance routine with the door down so no one from our school could see us and try to steal our song and dance. We had my laptop plugged-in on the counter top in the back of the garage playing the song clear as day. It was pretty much empty the car was outside since we needed it. We only had one since my dad died when I was three. So my mom had to pick up some slack but I finally had my license but no car. We just finished our dance and I stopped the disc from continuing to next song. Bryan went over to the fridge we put in next to the counter top. He threw each of us a water to keep us hydrated but he handed mine to me.
"So how was that Sean?" Jake asked with a smile on his face.
"Perfect guys. We just need to keep practicing so we can make sure we got it down and no one freezes up on stage." I told them.
"Sounds good." Bryan agreed.
"Yeah I in all the way plus I got nothing good going for me. My mom just bought me a car but I don't have my license yet." Andy added.
"Wait you got a car? I asked for confirmation.
"Yeah Why?" Andy replied.
"I got my license but no car. We can use your car to get to the talent show." I told him.
"Its true I was there with him and he was a perfect driver." Jake added. Jake rented out our guest room. So me and him and roommates now. While Bryan and Andy lived just down the street from me. We were all in agreement I would drive us all to the New Times Square for the talent show. Yeah our school's talent shows were held there pretty much every year. We practiced a bit more then everyone went home. The talent show started at 6:00 P.M. Knowing our luck we meet up at Andy's place at 4:30 P.M.
"OK. We all ready?" I asked everyone. We were wearing the same shirts as before but we all changed into blue jeans pants. Since all of our other pants were sweated out. I was driving. Bryan was in the passenger seat. While Andy and Jake were in the back. I didn't trust either of them in the passenger seat. For good reasons that no one should ever hear or read. We started on our way to the talent show we were last from what we heard. I mean really the four bunch of friends doing a dance to BTR yeah go figure. But I had Bryan navigating with him being the smart one and all. But that was a bad call on my part I didn't realize until about thirty minutes of driving in circles.
"OK Bryan its official you're a horrible navigator." I joked.
"Yeah I never been good with directions." he replied.
"Ah. Is anyone here good with directions?" I asked looking at Andy and Jake.
"Nope" They said at the same time.
"Jinx. You owe me a soda! Ha!" Jake shouted as he enjoyed his time. I looked around and noticed we were in a part of the city I never even knew existed. It was almost like a slum only every building was occupied by someone or something.
"Man this place is a dump." I whispered to my self. We drove slow as to be careful of people crossing the road. "How do we always end up getting lost?" I said out loud.
"Its just our luck. Hey lets ask that guy for directions." Andy said as he pointed to an old man in a black trench coat. We looked at each other and nodded. We all got out of the car and approached the man.
"Excuse me sir do you know the way to New Times Square?" I asked not sounding pushy. He turned to us the guy looked like he was in his mid 70's. Also I heard Jake puking behind us. I looked at him in anger.
"Oh yes I know where to go." He said motioning us to come inside his home. It was like you would expect from a 70 year old guy old furniture nothing new no tech at all. He had a fire place in front of five chairs. We all sat down in one.
"So how do we get to New Time Square from here?" I asked so he could remember what were here for.
"Oh I'm sorry I don't get many visitors. My name is Daks." Daks informed us. He then pulled out a bowl of hard candy he had that was fresh from a bag he found in a cupboard. He gave each of us a piece. Jake was obviously hungry he popped it into his mouth the second it reached his hand. No surprise since he finally managed to come in after puking for about five minutes. I shrugged off that thought and we all eat our respective pieces. Then Daks brought a pen and paper and started writing down the directions. We all said our good byes and we got in the car and managed to get to the talent show way early. We got there at 5:30 P.M. so we decided to practice a bit on stage to help get some safety features checked and ready. When it was all done we were all suddenly drained.
We went and sat underneath a tree in the park which was about five minutes away and that was walking. We all started to relax and I was about to catch some sleep when I heard Jake crying out in pain.
"Whoa! Jake whats wrong?!" I said as I turned and noticed a grey tail. My eyes widened then I heard Bryan and Andy screaming in pain. When I looked at them I saw Bryan growing orange fur and he had two fox tails. Andy was growing hawk feathers. His arms were turning into wings but he was keeping his size though which I thought was weird.
And when I thought I was in the clear I felt a sudden pain in my feet. Before I looked I heard a rip when I looked my shoes were shredded to bits like they just came out of a cheese grader. My feet now only had four digits and claws coming out of each. The pain continued up my body. When it reached my back I felt my spine started to grow until I saw my new tail. I was turning into a gold dragon. My scales were all golden yellow. Once it reached my chest I noticed Jake, Bryan, and Andy were all out cold. Then I fell in pain and blacked out from it. When I came to I thought it was a dream until I noticed my claws. I was the same anthro dragon from my shirt was wearing which was now in pieces on the ground.
"Man. What just happened?" Jake said as he came to. His eyes widened when he saw his paws and muzzle he was now a grey wolf.
"I don't know what happened but that was a sick dre
" Andy started before he saw his new wings. He was a full fledge hawk only thing that separated him from being a wild one was his size he was the same size as before. He was now a five foot hawk.
"Dang man my back is killing me." Bryan said as he raised up. He was now an anthro kitsune. Pretty much like Renamon from Digimon only he was still a he and he was orange with nine tails. We all looked at each other and started smiling. We were still us in minds but our bodies were that of our favorite animals. We looked at the stage that we were suppose to dance on tonight but turned and ran into the park.
We could have gone up there and have Jake make a fool of himself with him being on all fours and try to dance but we didn't need to freak any one out with the sight of a grey talking wolf, a golden anthro dragon, anthro kitsune, or an over-sized hawk. So we ran to the forests and jumped around making a living like normal animals. Still friends. Animals maybe but friends to the end.
