On a warm,Monday afternoon,a young woman named Marilyn Brownstone,was heading towards the tattoo shop.Marilyn or,Mary as people called her,always wore her auburn hair down to her back,her skin was light caucasian color mixed in with light brown.Mary's eyes were Olive green and she always wore her fave sunglasses whenever it was extremely bright outside.Mary found the tattoo shop then opened the door and went inside where it was very cool with AC inside.She approached the front of the store and rung a little bell to get the employees' attention,and no sooner had she done that,a huge bald guy with a thick,black handlebar mustache,a snake tattooed on his scalp and brown,intimidating eyes looked at Mary.Mary gulped silently as the man looked her and asked in a gruff voice,"What ya want,lady?"Mary looked at the man and told him,in a small voice,"I-I want to.....g-get a tattoo here.M-My friend r-recommended this place b-because you....give the.....best tattoos here...in town.A-Are you.....t-the manager?"The man looked at her then gave her a small smile.Then he nodded and told her that he was the co-manager of the Tattoo Parlor,the real manager would speak with her so Mary should take her seat.
Mary took her seat on the metal chairs near the curtain of the door next to her,and near Mary were some tattoo magazines.Mary took one of the magazines and started waiting for an employee to get to her.After three minutes,Mary was next,so she put the magazine down,got up from her chair and went inside of the room.Inside,a 35-year old woman with a lit cigarette in her mouth asked Mary,"So,what kinda tat you want,sweetie?We got plenty of them!"The woman artist pointed to the different arrays of tattoos from tigers to names to skulls and women's heads.Mary pulled a picture out of her pocket and showed the woman a picture of a huge dragon-like creature called a wyvern.It had silver scales,bronze scutes going up from its neck down towards its tail,its wings wide open and bronze colored wing membranes.The woman looked at the picture and agreed to do her tattoo,and then asked Mary where she wanted it?Mary smiled and told the woman that she wanted it near the muscle on her arm,so the woman told Mary to sit down and get comfortable.She sat down on the chair and the tattooing went on for about three or four hours.Mary was almost in tears but kept her composure.
Mary looked at her new wyvern tattoo on her arm and was completely estatic about it!She couldn't wait to show her friends the new wyvern tattoobut then asked how much the tattoo cost.The woman told her,"It's on the house.Go enjoy yourself,okay?"Mary thanked the woman and went on her way home unbeknownst to her that the woman had a dark black slit showing inside her brown iris and smiled to herself.Mary showed her friends the wyvern tattoo and they oohed and aahed itAfter her friends left,Mary suddenly felt dizzy and light-headed standing up,it was probably the excitement.So,Mary decided to go upstairs towards her room,got in her bed and fell fast asleep.Night fell and Mary was tossing and turning violently,while sweating profusely and breathing heavily.She felt like there was something squeezing the life out of Mary's lungs as she struggled to breathe,then Mary got up fast and was sweating bullets as she made her way to the bathroom.Mary turned on the faucet in her sink and splashed the cold water on her face then panted hard.She asked herself,"What was that?Was that a dream?That was way too real to be a dream...."It was then Mary felt a pain radiating through her like electricity through her body.
The muscles in Mary's body started to swell up tearing through her pink nightgown ripping them to shreds.She felt her arms stretch out in length,then her fingers lengthen into wingbones,then she could see a bronze membrane forming through the fingers of the wings.Then Mary felt her skeletal structure reformand her organs realigned themselves to accomodate her new body.Mary's vertabrae stretched out from her nek through her back until there was a huge bump near the base of her tailbone,then burst through her underwear into a huge reptilian tail.Mary's skin started to tear like wet toilet paper revealing silvery scales underneath and fell into clumps on the bathroom floor.Mary's legs also transformed;her legs had formed into digitigrades as her toes started to fuse into huge flesh rendering claws which were onyx black in color,she also felt bronze colored scutes moving from her throat towards her stomach and finally near her tail.As the transformation continued,Mary screamed out in absolute pain which woke up a female neighbor from a sound sleep and called the police since she thought that Mary was making noise.
Mary's face started stretching out as her nose started shrinking and the nostrils from her snout started flaring wildly.Her eyes started to shift to either side which caused Mary to momentarily shut her eyes becase of the severe pain as tears streamed when she opened her eyes,her pupils became slits.Suddenly,sirens could be heard from down the street as they were headed towards Mary's house;there were nine police cars,a paddy wagon and a S.W.A.T team at her door.
When Mary heard the commotion from outside her thoughts were,"Not now,please,not now!Why did the police have to be here?Why?"Mary held her head in severe pain as two white horns grew from out of her scalp and gotten longer.Then she felt very sharp spikes protrude from her head down towards her spine and onto Mary's tail.Outside,the police officers were ready with a battering ram just in case.The Sargeant had a bullhorn and yelled,"Ma'am,we're with the Police Department!We need you to open your door immediately!"Mary yelled back,"I-I can't right now!I'm dealing with something!"Mary then grasped her throat like it was on fire and yelled in pain which became a huge roar that echoed out into the night as her vocal cords stretched out.Her teeth became sharper and more longer,then her tongue was the last to transform,Mary's tongue became thinner and more longer.It then split into a forked tongue.
After Mary's transformation,she looked at the mirror and when she looked at her reflection,she gave out a horrific scream which became a roar.The sergeant heard the roar and told his men to use the battering ram and capture whatever was inside since there might be a dangerous beast inside.So,following orders,they rammed down Mary's door and ran towards her bathroom,but instead of a woman,they saw a huge beast with huge wings,large teeth,claws and a huge tail.Mary gave a huge roar which caused the officers to run away and drive back towards the police station.
"So,enjoying yourself,Mary?"a familiar voice rang out,"I see that the transformation spell was a complete success!"Mary turned around and saw a wyvern like herself,but she was maroon colored and had blackish membranes.
"T-transformation?",Mary told the wyvern,"wait,you mean that's why you let me have the tattoo free of charge because of a transformation spell?Does that mean,I can't be human again?"The wyvern looked at Mary and said,"Listen,it's not that bad,besides with the right training,you can learn how to keep your human and wyvern forms if you want to.I can teach you,what do you say,do you agree?"At first,Mary was reluctant,but she eventually agreed with her and they both flew out of the window into the moonlit night.
