Pt. 3 A Visit From Lucas
I put my eye up to the peephole. I couldn't believe my eyes. It was Lucas, my friend from Utah. But what was he doing here? I opened the door.

"Doulstraz, huh?" I asked.
"What do you not like that name?" Angela asked.
"Actually.. I think it's a pretty cool name." I responded with a smile.
My tail bobbed around happily.
"Looks like my tail likes that name too."
I broke my attention away from my tail for a sec.
"So what am I supposed to do now? Just stay in this cave?" I asked.
"Unfortuately, you don't have much o

I sat on my nest(which is what I decided on calling my new bed). It was only morning and I wasn't tired. Sarah and Angela went to the store to get some food. I wondered what they were getting? They didn't tell so maybe it would be a surprise.
Pondering about it made me sleepy. I started to doze off. I fell asleep.
By the time I woke up, it was around 5:30. I yawned a little and str

Pt. 8 A Trip to the Dragon Realm
I slept in my bed. Or whatever you could call it. I had been dreaming about what I'll be like when I'm fully dragon. I imagined that I'd be somewhat short since I'd be a dragon child. I dreamt that I had a long snout and two beautiful horns growing out of my head. My horns in my dream were a bloodish red. My nostrils were instead two sli

The woman claiming to be Angela walked back into the shop. I followed behind her.
"Okay so you're Angela Dragonwings. So what's this 'gift' you've been talking about in your letters?" I asked.
"You already got the gift." She responded. "It's your transformation."
"That's what's confusing me. I've got a tail but I shrunk to the size of a little kid. So am I becoming a croco

I flew through the nightsky with Angela. However my wings were starting to cramp on me.
I groaned with pain.
"Doulstraz, what's wrong?" Angela asked.
"I need to rest. My wings are sore."
"We should be back home soon. Will you be able to make it?" Angela asked.
"I don't think I--"
My wings lost all ability to move and I fell, through the sky. I thought this was it. I wouldn't

Pt. 13 The Fifth Dragon
From inside my cell, I could hear Ben's screams. Those weren't normal screams from what I could tell.
I could also hear the voices of two other people. I assumed it was his parents.
"Behind us is Titus, as well as some baby dragons." They explained.
I could hear footsteps: It was Sarah! I tried to run towards her but chocked a little. I remembered I was still chained by my ne

Pt.2 The Tail
We walked around the shopping center for quite some time. There seemed to be quite a few nice stores around. Mostly clothing stores but they also had stores for games and other stuff I thought was cool.
I held the plushie I had just bought tightly in my arms. It probably looked weird seeing a boy in his early teens walking around, hugging a stuffed animal but I didn't care. I just wanted to enjoy

Pt. 4 Titus Shrinks
I saw Jackie and Kyle run upstairs. It seemed like they got some new toys.
"Hey, Titus, we're home." Ben said.
"Yeah, I can see that." I replied, kinda rudely.
Jessie and Ben brought in some groceries. I figured that must have been why they took so long.
"So where'd you guys go?" I asked.
"We had to get some food, then Jackie and Kyle wanted to get some toys so I figured we'd go

Chapter 2: Hello Mr. Dragon
Lee debated for an hour on who to tell first; his parents or Skyler. He decided to tell Skyler now since his parents would probably forbid him from leaving the house upon seeing his new body. Lee thought everyone who woke up at his flamethrowing attempt had dismissed it as a dream and had gone back to bed. He stepped out his basement door and used his claws to scale the house, stopping for a moment to assure his parents were still asleep. They were and he continued climbing.
Lee knew hed need practice flying. He was afraid of falls(not heights) and got fractious in glass elevators. After a moment of getting used to the feeling of wind on his outstretched wings, Lee whispered, Here goesss. He had decided on his way to the roof that hed try to rid himself of that lisp on the way to Skylers. Lee lept and fell right into the azalea bushes at the back of his house which cushioned the fall. Unfortunately, it also woke

Chapter 1: Mysterious Beverages
It was around 2 a.m. and everyone had gone to bed except Lee. He was a true deviantArt fanatic and was on the site as much as possible. It was hard at first though since he had to keep his account secret for the first couple of weeks until his parents found out.
Suddenly, Lee heard a familiar sound, a rattling metal fence. He let it go assuming it was a cat; being that there were many felines in the area. Around 30 seconds later he heard it again, going the other way! Lee knew something was up and, knowing he was the only one who heard it, went to the back door to have a look. He knew he was the only one who had heard it due to his acute hearing which he assumed came from being half blind in one eye with an astigmatism.
Upon flipping on the porch light, Lee saw a case of Coke(the soda). He thought it odd that the company delivered the drinks to his home, especially at 2 in the morning. There was something odd about them though: the bottl

Chapter 3: A Day In The Life Of A Dragon
No one could sleep after the round of questions Lee was asked. He decided to spend the morning showing off what his new body could do. Lee had a cup of coffee and showed off the maneuverability of his tail by holding the cup with it. (If you are a dragon and want to show off just use your tail to manipulate things, it amazes humans.) After the coffee break they followed him outside having only an idea of what he was about to do. Lee began the demonstration by burning down the grass of the unoccupied house next door. He climbed atop the house and, having only flown thrice, lept onlt to spread his wings at the last possible second. This caused his mother to faint. She came to moments later to see the dragon that was her son doing many flips and twirls overhead
Little did Lee know that there was another dragon watching his show from atop a nearby mountain. It was another anthro-dragon who was a bit bigger than Lee. He watched Lee i

Chapter 5: Double Dragon
Lee awoke the next morning to find shredded pieces of his night clothes all around him. Somehow, he had transformed in his sleep! He got out of bed and put on his prepared clothes. Getting out his cell phone, Lee dialed Mr. Hollands number. It was around noon and Mr. Holland wondered who was calling him since he rarely gave out his number. He picked up and Lee asked, Ok, now Im wierded out. Why did I wake up a lot more scaly than I went to bed? Mr. Holland explained that sometimes the drinkers of the Cokes were only able to maintain human form for a limited time. So when will I be able to go back? Lee worriedly asked. "Wait a couple hours then try, finished the conversation.
He decided to fly out to Skylers in the mean time. Lee grabbed the other Cokes from under his bed and shoved the case in a backpack. His parents and brother were out for the day and so were Skylers. This woul

Chapter 6: The Meeting
Soon into the pursuit, Lee realized where they were heading. The other dragon was leading him toward his house! Youre not gonna hurt my family! Lee yelled. Unbeknownst to Lee, the other dragon wasnt purposely going anywhere. He was just looking for a place to land to tell Lee the truth. Since he didnt know the area too well, he had to find somewhere safe and Lees backyard seemed good.
Lee saw his house in the distance and knew hed never catch up at the rate he was flying. He sped up with an adrenaline-fueled speed boost and grabbed the other dragons tail causing them to go into a rapid freefall. As they fell, Lee could barely hear the dragon mumbling what sounded like curses in what sounded like Spanish. Sap Lee started.
Splash! They fell directly into Lees pool. The sun had gone down causing the pool to drop to near-freezing temperatures. Cold-blooded reptiles wont las

Chapter 4: Monday
Lee awoke to his blaring alarm clock. It was Monday morning and in about an hour, hed be heading for school. Lee got up and had a quick breakfast followed by a check of his DA messages. There werent that many but they looked important and read and replied to them. Ben300 had also posted another part of his story and while reading it, Lee couldnt help wondering how he wrote so fast.
Not wanting to ruin another outfit, Lee decided to wear what he had on. He took care of the rest of his morning rituals and was soon on the road. He wasnt old enough to drive (by human standards) so his mom drove him. They got there right on time since Lee pre-planned every bit of his mornings. Aside from a few nervous looks, he got to the building without incident.
Many people asked the same question and got the same response. I AM a dragon! he would always say, not wanting to cause panic if he had to do something dragonic. He was pretty

Chapter 7: Loosing Control and The Skyler File
(Authors Note: Skylers description will be from his point of view)
After Juan finished explaining to Lee and Mrs. Meeks that his parents knew of his powers, they all went inside Lees house for the night. Once inside, Lee thought up a devious plan. Lets see if what youve said is true, Lee suggested.
What have I said?
You dont remember what you said about NFS: Carbon in the chatroom?
I dont have a clue.
You said that you could easily beat me in a race. Lets test that theory!
What? Its 3 a.m. and I want to go to bed, Juan said, followed by a long, dragonic yawn.
Come on, Ill even let you use that Cuda I made for you.
Well Juan pondered, ok.
They tiptoed (as good as dragons can) quietly to Lees room to use the advanced graphics card of the PS3. When
A Guilmon change Part 1The military plane slowly approached the island. The sun was still hidden behind the skyline, and both the sea and the island were dark, and silent. Alex Sullivan and his two friends, Jean and Sam, were reloading their weapons, and checking their equipment. After a few seconds, the tall figure of their commander walked in front of them.
The commander took a deep breath, and then he said, Okay guys, listen up. Our satellites reported an unknown military activity on the island. We tried to contact someone down there, but there is something that blocks our signals. Your objective is to investigate the area, and locate whatever is interfering with our transmissions
Support? Alex asked, not really expecting to receive an answer.
The commander Johnson looked at him. Since our transmission are blocked, we can't give you radar support, and we can't even try to communicate with you...you are on your own

An Odd PartyAn Odd Party
Can we please merge now? You wearing me without us being merged is really getting annoying!
I told you, youre just going to have to wait until they get here.
At least let me have the mouth so I can speak and have a little energy.
Ok, but you better let me go as soon as they show up, I said as I felt my face push out into the dragonic muzzle of the costume.
Drethan gave me this costume several months ago but he neglected to tell me that this thing was alive! The first time it took me over, it wasnt pleasant and I lost all self-control until by bull-headedness fought it off. I had been in and out of it a lot and I now have control over it but it still seemed sinister having its voice in my head. Even though it was a large one, I had been able to keep this secret from everyone but my parents. When I told them, they went to confront Drethan (and possibly get costumes of their own) but he was nowhere to be found. Hront
It's a Dragon's World EndHi, everyone. Titus Flamel here, better known as Daulstraz. Thanks for reading the story. However you're probably wondering what's happened to everyone afterwards. Well lemme tell you:
Jackie started 3rd Grade. Kyle started his first day of Kindergarten.
As it turns out, Lucas actually was coming to live in California. His parents went to their relatives to see about buying a house in Cali. Lucas and I are going to the same school. Same with Sarah.
Speaking about Sarah, she's now tending Angela's old shop. From what I've heard, she's still sleeping in the cave the three of us lived in for that short time.
Ben and Jessie are still the same. I'm still staying with them of course.
As for me, I set up a little grave for Angela outside the house in the backyard. I stayed with my real parents for a while while I was in the Dragon Realm, learning to control switching between my human and dragon forms.
That's the end of our story. Thanks for reading!
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
Keep in Touch!
