                                                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 to WalMart for some food." Jessie explained.

"Y'guys shoulda let me know first."

"Well we figured you'd be to busy getting reaccquainted with Lucas so we didn't let you know."

I grumbled a little under my breath.

"Oh,yeah. Titus, this is for you."

Ben handed me a piece of paper.

"Where did you get this?" I asked.

"Some person gave it to us. They said to give it to Titus Flamel and to not read it."

I figured I'd open it after dinner.

Dinner time came and I was feeling a bit tired. Everyone sat around the dinner table, eating mashed potatoes, with some gravy and some other food.

"Hey, Uncle Titus, aren't you hungry?" Jackie asked.

"Hmm? Actually, no I'm not."

"That's strange. Knowing Titus, he'd probably be eating more than us." Lucas joked.

"Are you okay?" Jessie asked.

"Yeah. If it's okay with you guys, I'm just gonna rest my eyes. If I fall asleep, will you just let me sleep down here?"

"Yeah. That's okay." Ben said.

I closed my eyes and soon enough, I was fast asleep.

I woke up a few hours later. I yawned a little. All the lights were off and the table was clear. I decided since I was up, I'd see what was written on that paper.

I opened it up and read it to myself.


Dear Titus,

I hope you are doing well. How do you like the present I gave you? You're probably still wondering what's happening to your body. Meet me at the store where you bought your plush toy and I'll explain everything.

Angela Dragonwings


I got off the couch and stood up. It was strange. I was almost the same size as the coffee table. I was just a head taller. I figured I was probably still tired and walked upstairs.

It was kinda hard to walk up the stairs. What's going on? I thought to myself. Am I still dreaming?

I got in the bathroom and when I tried to look in the mirror, I couldn't see myself. Heck, I couldn't even see the mirror. I grabbed the stool my little nephew and neice use and stood up on it. When I looked in the mirror, I didn't see myself at all. In place of my reflection was a little kid. I was getting worried now. Was my mind playing tricks on me? There was only one way to figure out. I looked over myself again. I was only 4'8! It seemed my tail was still there, but it seemed to have shrunk along with me.

I was scared. I didn't know what I was supposed to do. My old clothes didn't fit me, and I couldn't go out naked. I figured all I could do was see if my nephew, Kyle had some clothes that would fit.

I opened the door to the kids' room quietly. I walked slowly as to not wake them up. I remembered Ben bought some clothes for Kyle this year that didn't fit him. They were too big. I rummaged through Kyle's clothes and found them. I put on his jersey, with the number 8 on the front. And I put on a pair of short legged blue jeans. Before getting them completely on, I realized my tail would need a lot of room this time. I went back into the bathroom, took the jeans off and made a tailhole large enough to fit my tail through.

I walked quietly downstairs, trying not to wake anyone up. I had to stand on my tiptoes just to reach the doorknob. It took a while but eventually I got it.

I quietly closed the door again and ran for the toy store. I hoped no one would see my tail. I'd be screwed if they did.

As I ran, I tripped and landed flat on my face. Oww! I realized that I really DID shrink after all. I  got up and continued to run. I only had a few hours to make it to the toystore before Ben and the others woke up.

Two hours later, I made it to the toy store. Yet there was no one around. I leaned on the door of the toy store. The door opened and I fell backwards, landing directly on my tail.

"Can I help you, little boy?" The woman from the other day asked.

"First off I'm NOT a little boy! I'm 13! Second I'm waiting for someone."

"You're not a little boy, huh? You sure don't look 13. You look more like you're eight or seven."

"Well I'm not!" I shouted angerly. "Something happened to me and my body shrunk!"

The woman rubbed my head and smiled. "You kids and your stories. They're so cute!"

I looked down. I was so embarrassed. No one would be able to take me seriously. To them, I'm just a thirteen year old kid, with a tail, in an eight year old's body. Although they wouldn't see the thirteen year old me. Just an eight year old kid who's got a lizard-like tail.

The old woman gasped as she saw my tail wagging back and forth.

"That tail..." She gasped. "Are you...Titus Flamel?"

"Yeah. I am. But how do you know who I am?" I asked.

"Yes. I thought I'd meet you soon. But not like this."

"Alright, ENOUGH!" I demanded. "Who are you? How do you know me?"

"I guess I SHOULD introduce myself. My name is... Angela Dragonwings."

"WHAT???" I thought in my head. THIS woman was the one whose name appeared in those letters. I couldn't believe it. What was going on here???
Well here's a second helping of It's a Dragon's World.

Pt 4 is done and Pt 5 will be up tomorrow. I hope you enjoy this.

Poor Titus.^^

Heh. Yeah. He's going through a lot. First he grows a dragon tail, then his body shrinks to the size of an eight year old. I kinda think that would be cool though. I mean being shrunk back to a little kid and having a tail. It would be kinda weird though, but who cares? Weird is normal, and normal is weird.

It's going really well. I wish I had a toy that did that to me. :D
Animeboye Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2007  Student
I don't know if it's the toy that's doing this to him. I plan on the toy playing a part in his transformation but as to what degree I have no clue.

I'm glad you like it. That makes me glad to know^^!

Coolness! Cant wait till tommorow! I laughed at the part where he is mistaken as an 8yr old.
Animeboye Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2007  Student
Well his body's that size now. I'm not too certain if his age went along with his height but we'll just have to see.

Titus shrinking will be explained in the next chapter.
jaked122 Featured By Owner May 11, 2008
well if i'm correct then he would be like a 7-year old due to the fact that dragons live like 1300 years, so in theory he would change into a very young dragon about the equivelent of a 7-year old
