That Fateful Night

Matthew was slowly swinging in the park down the street from his house. He loved to do this late at night. Nobody was around, nothing to distract him from the exhilirating feeling of the air rushing through his brown hair. It energized him to no end! His skinny frame easily fit into the swings meant for nine-year-olds, even though he was a high school senior.

Glancing toward his friend's house, he was surprised to see a shadow making its way over here. As the silhouette revealed itself under a streetlamp, Matthew saw it was his friend, Nic! What was he doing here this late? Nic just smiled at him and started to swing alongside him, remaining silent for a moment, just like he knew his friend preferred. 

Silence aside, Nic asked Matthew what he was thinking about. He replied, "I've been thinking about freedom, about what it would feel to break free from the status quo, to be myself. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be completely alone and isolated from society, and how free I would feel."

"I know what you mean," Nic said. "I have to run, but please don't stay out much longer tonight. It's a full moon, and you know what that means!" As he slid off the swing, Nic made howling sounds at him as a joke, and waved goodbye.

Rolling his eyes, Matthew continued swinging, not noticing the black sillhouette creeping up behind him, with a recognizable lupine form with some human characteristics. Suddenly, he was thrown off the swing and blacked out.

***

Matthew woke up in a hospital bed. He didn't remember coming here, all he could remember was swinging and falling off. Someone must have found him after he got hit and brought him here! That must be what happened. He looked at himself and saw that his side had been bandaged.

He was soon released from the hospital and the next month passed by uneventfully.

Matthew went out to the playground earlier than normal that night. He'd finished doing homework really early and had nothing better to do. Lacking other abilities besides intellect, he didn't really have much of a choice. The sun started to go down as he started to swing. The red-orange clouds reflected in his brown eyes, and seemed almost to make his brown hair glow. One could say they'd like to live in that moment forever, and at first, so would Matthew.

He wasn't expecting his friend to show up tonight, though when he'd returned to school after the incident, Nic had regarded him with a look that he knew meant, "You stayed after despite my request, didn't you?" They didn't talk about it anymore, but it had given Matthew an ominous feeling.

The breeze calmed down to a complete stillness as the moon came over the horizon. A full moon. Had somebody been there to observe, they would have thought they'd seen Matthew's eyes turn yellow. Strange indeed.

His pants began to tighten on him, especially around the waist, as well as his shirt. Not wanting to tear his shirt, he quickly removed it and beheld a muscular body he knew he hadn't possessed a minute ago. In shock, Matthew also felt a pressure growing in the rear of his pants, diminishing as a tail grew out of a new hole there. A tail. He was growing a tail!

He felt his ears pointing themselves, and nervous about what was happening, licked his teeth, finding that his canines were growing. His shoes getting tight, he removed those as well, finding that his feet were lengthening and growing leather-like pads. His fingernails appeared to be turning into sharp claws as well. A splash of brown fur grew on his abdominal muscles, and spread like wildfire throughout his body.

Matthew felt his ears moving to the top of his head while also growing fur, and simultaneously his nose and mouth grew out into a muzzle. He was absolutely horrified by this change! How would he explain this to anybody? About his stretched pants, his stretched shirt, his body in general. His hands and feet became paws as his heels moved themselves up his legs slightly, resembling a wolf. Of course! That's what I'm becoming, Matthew thought.That's what Nic was trying to warn me about last month! I was bitten by a werewolf, and I'm transforming now!

Matthew's belt broke from too much tension on it, and now his body resembled that of a hard-core body builder, albeit a very furry one. Looking at his body, he realized this wasn't such a bad thing! For once, he looked amazing, and not like a nerd! I could get used to this!
This was a request from :iconmisharu-prower: for a werewolf TF for her OC, Matthew. I had a litle fun with this one, including a cameo for my OC. ;D Enjoy!

This is pretty awesome!! Hey, at least he'll have a reason to isolate himself now. Guess that's one way to break off from society. :)
I'm in a slump myself as of late; I haven't written anything in over two weeks. I'm so ashamed!! T_T I've never had an art block this bad before, it's really been depressing me. I sit with a word document open for almost an hour and the cursor just blinks at me angrily the entire time. >.<
