Thomas was your ordinary,everyday guy;he had a loving family,a wonderful job that paid,and he loved life.He was lean,but almost muscular,had black hair,greyish-blue eyes,and caucasian skin.Unfortunately,Thomas had a secret that he'd never even told his family;he was cursed with the mark of the Dragon.
A very long time ago,one of Thomas' ancestors,named Zachariah had fallen in love with a beautiful gypsy woman,named Emerald Rose,and had an affair with her.One year later,she told Zachariah that she was about to have a baby,but he told her that he was going back to his wife,leaving Emerald Rose to raise it alone.
Well,she was extremely angry and placed a curse on Zachariah's exclaiming,"Zachariah,I place this curse on your head!On each full moon,the seventh child of your accursed bloodline shall possess the Mark of the Dragon and become a dragon themself.They shall never find happiness ever again!"Suddenly,Zachariah felt a sharp stinging pain in his right hand then knelt on the ground,tears streaming down his eyes.Afterwards,the pain stopped and fearfully looked at his hand.It was a strange black marking of a small dragon on it.
Now,because of the curse,every seventh child in Thomas' side of the family,ended up with the mark of the dragon on their right hand.Unfortunately,he was the seventh child in his family and wound up with the cursed mark himself.Because of that,he had to hide it away from his family,his friends,everyone he came in contact with because he was afraid they wouldn't accept him.The thought weighed heavily on his mind as he sat on the couch,covering his hands to his face in shame.
His wife,Elaine,came downstairs and asked,"Tommy,are you okay?You haven't been in bed."Thomas uncovered his face and just replied that nothing was wrong.He looked at her light blue eyes and gave her a small smile,then kissed Elaine on her forehead,and got up from the couch.Thomas told her that he was going to the park to clear his head for a bit and that he'd see Elaine later.He opened the front door and walked out then shut the door behind him.
Thomas loved walking to the park since it was very quiet and peaceful.He took in a deep breath of the cool night air and let it out,sighing in relief.The crisp,cool Summer breeze made the grass waft softly and the smell of flowers hung in the air.However,Thomas let out a sharp gasp and clutched his chest in pain like he had a fire inside his heart and someone poured gasoline on it.With shaky breaths,he looked up and saw the full moon hanging like a pearl.A strange voice echoed through his head," On each full moon,the seventh child of your accursed bloodline shall possess the Mark of the Dragon!"
Just as the echo faded,Thomas screamed in pain as he felt his bones cracked and popped then rearranged into a quadruped form making him fall to the ground writhing in pain.His muscles started to get bigger giving him incredible strength.The muscles in his chest started to swell with every breath he took,causing the front of his shirt to rip apart into ribbons.The muscles in his legs did the same,tearing his denim jeans and his underwear then fell onto the ground.Thomas groaned then he looked at his hands and they grew bigger,then fused into a huge draconic like paw.
Thomas's nails grew into huge talons,then his other hand did the same thing.His shoes felt extremely tight and burst as his toes fused with huge whitish claws.Thomas felt a wave of nausea hitting him and thought to himself," W-what's happening to ...me?!The pain,it hurts so much!The nausea got worse as his internal organs shifted to accomdate his new form and became bigger.
Suddenly,Thomas could feel his skin tightening like a suit that was too small then ripped apart like a wet tissue.He could see,through the pained tears in his eyes,that the scales were black in color and spread to the other parts of his body.Thomas felt his neck lengthen as well as his larynx causing him to scream out in pain,but instead it came out as a huge roar.
Thomas wished that he could die to stop the pain,but it was just getting started.He scratched on the hard concrete as Thomas could feel his spine stretching out into a vertabrae making popping and cracking noises stretching out his torso,then he screamed in pain as a huge tail burst out from his backside.Thomas was breathing heavily and shaking violently as huge red spikes burst from his head and made their way down his back until it reached his tail.
On the other side of the park,a robber was casing the park to see if there was anyone he could rob.He heard Thomas' screams,making his heart almost stop cold.The robber snuck to a nearby bush and what he saw made him cringe;a man in mid-transformation into a foreign creature.He(the robber)just froze in place as he saw Thomas' transformation continuing.Thomas screeched,"Please,anyone!Help me!"The balls of his feet stretched outwards causing him to lose his balance.
Thomas' ears stretched outwards then split into a fin while red translucent membranes weaved through them.A pain shot from Thomas' shoulderblades as two huge bumps grew from them then two armlike appendages burst through his back and the same red translucent membranes formed through the fingers of the wings.His black hair fell out into clumps on the concrete ground then two huge white curved horns grew out from his head and grew out more.Thomas' eyes started to shift to the sides of head,then afterwards,when he opened his eyes,his eyes were yellow and the pupils changed from round to slitted.
His face cracked and pushed out as a huge snout making Thomas wince in pain while his nose shrunk into his face.Red scutes formed from his throat down towards his underbelly,and down towards his tail.Finally,Thomas felt a throbbing pain in his gums and opened his mouth.His regular teeth fell out onto the ground and sharp teeth grew in their place,then his tongue become thinner and the middle of it split like those of a serpent's.After the transformation was complete,he roared into the night.The robber had seen enough and was about to turn tail,but then,Thomas heard the man's heartbeat and ran towards the bush.
The robber ran for it,his blood beating inside of his body with every step he took trying to evade Thomas.Unfortunately,Thomas was more faster than him and caught him.Then in one gulp,ate him.After that "light" meal,Thomas decided to go hunt for more game to fill his rumbling stomach,so he flexed his wings then flew up into the sky.His silhouette covered the cream colored moon and flew off into the night sky as a feminine laugh echoed through the sky.
