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.
