The Change

They show him the change. Rex is in a locked room. He peaks with fangs and hunched over in agony. He screams and roars in the same breath with yellow slitted eyes.
“Some only go through this change once a month. Some love it more than others,” she said. His face turns into a cat. Then the animal stands on 2 legs. He turns and charges at the door. He bumps into the door. It jars. John steps back and says,"Wow."
“Careful,” says Kitty. He can’t hurt you.
“So you keep saying. I won’t know until I test it, Will I, ”he says.
“Yes, “she answers.
“But that won’t happen today,” says Leo. He marveled at the boy’s bravery a glimmer he hadn’t seen since the extinction of his pride.
“Some like the change, Rex does,” says Kitty.
“Do you,” asks John.
"No,” says kitty, she replies slowly.
Your Ka is different, says Leo. As he changes the subject. “It’s funny I’ve never felt different,” he said. “You probably have and didn’t know it, yet anyway the test has yet to come, says Leo. He looks back into the room and Rex was on the floor naked. “That was fast he said,” he said. “Is it always like that. "We can change more quickly now; we’re not always at the mercy of the beast,” she says. “You sound like it is a different being,” says John. “We are one and the same. I have accepted that. But when you transform it's the animal,” she says.


John Henry is at their house and begins to notice things. It's a cave really, scultped into the rock hidden by other caves.
Longs nails they refuse to trim. Long canine teeth, bodies covered with soft fine hair. Rub them selves constantly, Give themselves a bath, pointed ears, pale skin, hisses, becomes aggressive quickly, hates water, eat 10 times a day, eats only meat, super vision, smells in the air. Sleeps in a feline twisted position.
They tell him he is a therianrtophy. He thinks he is the soul of an animal. H

The Pantheras Again

That night John was taken from his dorm. It was the Panthera’s. He awoke riding on the back of a great Lion. “Don’t worry said, Leo Panthera, you are safe, ”he said. They took him to their home.


John sneaks away to the library one night and researches the temple,
Herodotis has been quoted as saying:” The site of the building is in the center of the city and looks like an island it has two canals from the Nile circled the island, they flow in a circle, each canal is a hundred feet wide and shaded with trees. There is a lower wall just swarmed with more trees lie an indoor oasis, there are many statues, but just to the outer most wall is the statue of the Goddess herself. “
John closes the book. He feels the scepter must have been in the hands of one of the statues, but where is it now?

What Lies Ahead

"You will have the ability, not only to shape shift, but to turn into a Were Cat, this is what will give you powers over all shape shifting cats,” Minx says." Why didn’t you just tell me this,”John says. “You will gain strength by figuring it out yourself. Only escaping adventure after adventure will give you the training and strength you will need for what lies ahead,” She says as she looks to Isis, ”And they will have a part to play as well, keep your friends close John Henry and we know where your enemies will be,” she ends.
She yawns and twists beginning to freeze. He yells,” but wait,” but she is slumbering again.

At Home

Isis covered John, and she sees a magical doorway at the edge of the room. “Quick she says,” both jump over some nearby rubble and continue walk through the door. The are amazingly, back in the shop. John says,” Let’s go and they run upstairs and out the door. The oracle comes out from behind some books smiling. They speed to the orphanage, and John pulls Isis into his room. “Wait, “ she says you know I can’t be in here. ”Look,” I want you to see something, Minx, "he called. The cat twists from it's pedestal and turns into the beautiful sorceress. “You revealed yourself to my friend,” he said. “It is useful for me to show her,” she says. John shakes his head at another one of her riddles. “Look,It is me isn’t it,” He questions. “I'm surprised you noticed,"she says. “I would notice myself anywhere,” he joked,” “It is what will be, who showed you this? Someone meant for you to see it,"Minx said. ”We found it,” he said. "Where,” she asks. "It’s a long story,” he said. “Of course, someone put it there,” she ends. Isis looks stunned and doesn’t speak. He turns to her, ”Oh Isis this is Minx, my cat." Isis could barely speak but manages. “I never knew you had a cat, let alone one like this,”she ends.
