Surprise of a Lifetime
When we got to school, we noticed that every sight, smell, and sound was amplified. It actually took us a bit to get used to the unusual brightness of the room. We walked over to our group of friends that we talk to the most. They were Mike Lewis, José Martinez, Jack Winters, and Amelia Curtis. They looked a little surprised at our new appearances, but then again, so were we.
"Are you guys feeling ok, you look like you're about to toss chunks." Mike said while we were eating breakfast.
"Well thanks for that. Now I do feel like throwing up." Lucas said while almost throwing down his fork in defeat. Yet sense Michelle and I had stomachs of steel, we kept on eating. Besides, I hadn't had anything to eat since last night.
"He's right, you guys look a little paler than usual. Are you guys sure you are feeling ok?" Amelia asked, right before the bell rang for first hour.
We all went our separate ways, me, Lucas, and Michelle going to gym. While the others went to their classes. When we were outside jogging, I noticed that we were running faster than anyone else. I ran over to them to see if they noticed, they did.
"What is with us today, are we sick? Or are we just getting better?" Lucas asked while jumping over a rat that was running down the sidewalk. I then turned around to get a better look at it and saw something. I saw that it wasn't a rat, but some kind of insect. It had eight legs and a long tail. It was a slightly peach and tan color. It turned around and ran back towards us and leapt into the air. It landed on my shoulder and coiled its tail around my arm.
It felt like I had seen this thing before, yet I couldn't put my finger on it. I turned back around and saw that Lucas and Michelle had one on both of their shoulders. In fact, the creatures looked rather peaceful at the moment.
"What in the hell are these things?" Michelle said while poking hers.
"I don't know, but they look kind of cool." I said while looking mine over.
"How can we be sure that these things aren't dangerous? They look like they may be poisonous." Lucas said from behind us. We turned around and saw him trying to pry his off.
"Would you stop, if they were dangerous, they would have done something to us already." Michelle said while petting hers. At some times, she can actually be a girl, but she is mostly a tomboy by heart.
As we were walking back inside, the creatures crawled under our sleeves and hid under our shirts. The teachers just thought that we looked normal since it gave us a little bit of our bulk back.
"These things better not get any ideas while they're in my shirt." My sister said while making sure the creature was in an "appropriate" spot. What she said was so funny; I ended up on the floor of the gym laughing. I apparently got the attention of our teacher.
"If you're quite through Mr. Killmor, we are about to play the most famous game in all of gym class, dodge ball." He said while holding up a red rubber ball.
We all got separated by class, me and my sister on one team with our class, and Lucas and his class on the other. We all knew how to play the game, yet the teachers still told us how to. When they blew the whistle, me and Michelle ran forward and grabbed as many dodge balls as we could. This ended up us getting around 75% of them while Lucas got the other 25%.
For some strange reason, the primal, feral feeling I had a while ago came back, but not as strong. I turned around and saw a guy about to nail me in the head. I ducked backward in an almost perfect imitation of the Matrix move! As I stood back up, I grabbed a nearby ball and hurled it at the guy. It nailed him right in the kisser! HELL YEAH! I turned back around and saw Michelle staring at me with wide eyes.
"How in the slagen pits of hell did you do that? That was fucking AWSOME!" She said while ducking in the same manner I did. I then saw a ball heading right for her. I ran towards the wall and jumped. I realized that I didn't have enough height to catch it.
For some reason, I got an idea that running up the wall would help. But that wouldn't happen, would it? Why not.
I ran up the side of the wall and jumped off of it. I back flipped and caught the ball in mid air. I turned around and saw the guy who had thrown it at her. It was Travis Harris, school ass hole and pervert. In fact, he had tried to have sex with my sister by force once. I had really let that primal side take care of him. I had almost torn his head off, well before Lucas came home and stopped me. Right now he was grinning, or at least he was before I grabbed his ball in mid-flight.
I threw the ball with so much force; it knocked him off his feet. That's when all of the lights in the gym went out. Everyone start freaking out while Michelle, Lucas and I escaped out the back door. As we were running, the creatures came out from underneath our shirts and resumed their place on our shoulders.
"Ok, what the hell just happened back there?" Lucas asked while panting.
"I don't know, but it was almost like I was an animal. All I wanted to do was get Travis. And I got the idea that running up the wall was a good idea to catch the ball." I said while panting as well.
"Well whatever just happened, it did the trick to…" Michelle started, before doubling over in pain.
"Hey sis, are you ok?" Lucas said from behind me.
She soon stood back up, be it oddly.
"Yeah, I'm fine. But my back really…WHAT THE FUCK?" She screamed while looking at her back.
Lucas and I went to look at her back and almost pissed ourselves at what we saw. She had grown a tail about two yards long with large spikes running down it and a larger spike at the end. That's when Lucas bent over in pain afterwards. After he got back up, he too had a tail on his back.
"Ok, what in the slagen pits of…" I started before feeling a terrible feeling in my stomach. I bent over and my spine felt like it was splitting apart. I wanted to scream, but I was in too much pain to even open my mouth at the moment. As the pain went away, I felt something behind me moving. I looked behind me and saw a tail just like theirs.
"What in the fuck is happening to us?" Lucas said while trembling.
"I don't know, but it's scaring me." Michelle said while looking over herself to make sure there weren't any more changes.
"What do you two mean this is scaring you? This is just a minor inconvenience." I said while looking them over. They both looked rather hurt by my words.
"Wait, why did I just say that? I didn't even mean it." I said while slapping myself physically and mentally.
"It's ok; we know that you didn't mean it. What we need to find out now is how we turned into whatever we are now." Lucas said while patting my back, which had grown some spikes while we fighting.
"Dude, when the heck did you get those?" Lucas said while holding his now bleeding hand.
"I don't know, but you kind of look like a xenomorph now." Michelle said while looking at her back and tail. That's where I had seen these bugs from. They were face-huggers from Aliens.
"So that's where I saw these things before, they're from Aliens." I said while petting mine for a change. It almost seemed like it was purring while I did. It was almost cute. Where did that thought come from?
"Well now that we know what these things are, let's go and find out what happened to us." Michelle said while walking back to the car.
"Let's get going, before we are noticed." Lucas said while following Michelle.
Little did we know that we were already noticed.
