Andy was a normal guy. He had light brown hair, shiny blue eyes and a light skin complexion. He liked wearing jeans, hoodies and a comfortable pair of shoes. He used to live with his parents, and they spent much time together. Everything was normal, until the day Andy became 15. he never supposed that his best friend was, in fact, a wizard in training.
It was a beautiful morning on Saturday: the skies were blue and cloudless, the sun was shining and the birds were chirping. Andy made plans with his friends to meet and go to the cinema, just to celebrate his birthday, and then go back home to open his presents.
He woke up too early, feeling really happy. He soon went to the study, turned on the computer and began surfing the web, wanting to discover many congrats for him. While doing this, his parents woke up, and went to the kitchen to make him a special breakfast. He just noticed them when he smelt the food, and then he was called downstairs, to the dinning room. He thanked his parents, and after eating, he went back to the computer. His parents soon washed the dishes, got showered and clothed, and went to the market to shop some things for the next week. They left Andy alone in the house, and just when the door was closed, Andy heard the incoming message from the computer. It was Mary, one of his friends, and the girl Andy wanted to be boyfriend with. She congratulated him, and remembered him about their meeting at the mall round to 3 p.m., then said good bye. He stayed at the computer for a bit, and after some minutes, he went to take a shower. At 1 p.m., his parents were back, and all of them went out to have lunch at the mall. When his watch showed 3 p.m., Andy said bye to his parents, and went to the cinema. He soon found there all his friends, and they bought tickets for an action movie.
Once movie had ended, all of them left the cinema, and went to eat something before going Andy's home. All, except for his best friend, John, would be with him later, so John took Andy apart before he was gone, and gave him a little piece of paper.
- Listen -he said- I'm so sorry I can't go with you, but you know how are things at home. So, here's my present. Hope you enjoy it!
-It doesn't matter, I understand -Andy answered- Anyway, it had been a great day. Thank you for being here, and for being my best friend all those years.
Andy took the paper and put it into a pocket of his jeans, and the said bye.
After a long walk, Andy and his friends were at home, were Andy's parents had a big cake with 15 candles shining over it, and many gifts around. His friends put their presents with the others, and sang him "Happy birthday". Then, Andy began to open his presents. He received some hoodies, a new watch, a pretty nice necklace from Mary, some bracelets, a new video game and a laptop from his parents. After that, his friends said bye, and left Andy with his parents.
He carried all the things to his room, and put the hoodies into the closet, the necklace and the bracelets into the drawer of his night table and the laptop on the desk. He began to play his new game for a while, until he felt tired. He turned off the computer, went back to his room and change his clothes with the pajama. When he put off his jeans, the little paper John gave him fell on the floor. Andy took it from the floor, and looked at it. It was all white, except for a little spot of ink made in a corner. He had to be really tired, as he saw like a paw print, but he doesn't thought about it for too long. He was sad for such a mess of gift from his best friend. Finally, he put it on the desk, next to the laptop, went to say good night to his parents, and back in his room, he went to sleep.
Next morning, he woke up late, and found a note on the fridge door:
We're at your grandma's house. She will send you a nice gift, and we're carrying it home. Make your breakfast, and go out to eat something at lunch time, or call to a restaurant and ask for delivery. See you at night.
Mom and Dad"
He wondered about a whole day just for him. He turned on his laptop and started the IM service. there, he found his best friend connected, and thought about complaining at him about the gift. After talking for some time, John realized he forgot giving Andy a little instruction: the paper had invisible ink (lemon juice), so Andy went for a candle, put it on fire, and put the paper over it, caring not letting it get burned, until a message got revealed:
CANIS CORPSE TRANSMUTI
He read it many times, without finding any meaning. Then, john told him, he should read it in loud voice, and Andy followed the instruction. Anyway, nothing had happened. Andy got angry, thinking his friend was laughing at him, so he turned off the laptop, and went to take a shower. He was soon clothed, and put hands on work making his breakfast, and after eating, he felt strange. Suddenly, he felt a stomachache, and went to the bathroom, closing the door after him.He began to feel pain, not just in his stomach, but also at his feet. He felt it too tight, so he decided to put off his shoes. After that, his socks fell off, and he discovered a pair of paws revealing from under his pants. He soon felt his legs lengthening, so he put off his jeans, and once at time, the shirt and the hoodie. He was absolutely naked, except for his boxers. He soon felt something else strange under his feet and hands, which were turning also more paw-like. The he felt unable to stay upright in his legs and fell on the floor, and when he got up, he discovered light yellow fur growing from his arms and legs. His pain turned into fear. His ears began to grow, without noticing it. Once fur had grow on his chest, he began to see something in front of his face, something that had never been there before. His muzzle was growing. After that, he felt a pain over his buttocks, at the end of his spine, and turning his head back, he saw a tail growing, ripping his boxers and letting it fall on the floor, and showing his pack getting a bit smaller, and hiding into a sheath. Once this changes finished, he noticed something into his mouth too big for being there, and opening his muzzle, he began to pant, showing new teeth growing, and a large tongue getting a bit larger. He lose his brown hair, and his blue eyes turned into black. Finally, he found himself thinking in eating, playing and sleeping all day, and, without any advice, a collar appeared at his neck, making him lose the last sights of his humanity.
