Darkness… That’s all I saw for the last 1000 years. Only because I was betrayed by those who I was generous to. Only accompanied by other Dragon souls and feral-instincts, who try to escape from this cursed place, where we were banned to.
My name is Serth Urskhrarla Sharpscales. I’m a black quadruped dragon-leader with blood-red breastplates and the same plates on my legs. I have 4 black wings with blood-red membranes, blood-red spikes on my back and a same colored tail blade. I have blue markings on my whole body and red talons. I’m currently in my spirit-form because my body is long since destroyed. Before I was banished and killed I was a good hearted and kind dragon-leader. But the humans wanted more…our gold and our treasures. I refused to give them everything, but wanted to share…but again they were too greedy and wanted everything. So they killed me and banished me, but before they could do that I swore with my last breath that in 1000 years I’ll be back. And now the time has come. Before I would have never thought of the same thing the feral-instincts did…possessing human bodies against their will. I changed over the long years with criminal dragons and feral-instincts as my only company. Kindness and the thought of doing good things for humans were replaced by anger, sorrow, hatred, rage and bloodlust. The other spirits knew my story and knew that the time of my resurrection has come. “My fellow dragons! The time of my return has finally come! I will now go through the portal to their pathetic human world and choose some mortal human, who is foolish enough to let me possess his body with the promise of power!” I said and the spirits cheered. “I have to get some followers so come with me if you want to live again. I will take 5 other dragons with me to their world but they have to be ready to hide their real identity for some time. And if someone reveals us to the world…the punishment will be death!” A murmur goes through the crowd and 5 black dragons stepped forward. “Us five are ready to come with you and do everything you say!” The biggest of the five said, probably the leader of them. “Very well” I said. “Then now come with me and let’s get to their world.” I said while opening a portal.
My new era begins!
If you now ask yourself: ”But I thought dragons were good!” then you were right. WERE right. After I was betrayed, other dragons tried to stop the humans, but they were too many and most of the dragons got killed. The few that survived had to hide for the whole time, till they were forgotten and long after that. That got them to hate humans and I hated the humans too. So if you would have lived in that time, you would have been right, but that time is over.
Back to the current time
Me and the 5 dragons stepped out of the portal. To human eyes we were invisible and just a gust of wind. “OK” I said “We will split up now and see how the world has changed and then find our hosts to take over.” I said “Yes my lord!” They bellowed, split up and flew away. I just turned my head to see my surroundings. ‘A forest huh?’ I thought. ‘Not too bad. At least no humans here’
(Authors note: Sorry to bash just in,but text with these: “…..” are spoken and text with these ‘…….’ are thoughts. And in his current spirit form he won’t have the hiss and growl in his voice. And now let’s continue. If you know a better method to make clear, what's spoken and whats thought, tell me. :Authors note end)
‘So let’s search for some humans’ I thought and flew into the air. ‘At least I don’t have to flap my wings as a spirit.’
I flew around and only saw trees for at least an hour, before I flew into what seemed like a huge metal bird which had humans in his stomach! ‘What the hell is this?! Why would humans be so calm if they just got eaten by a bird?! I wouldn’t want to be one of those humans in that, they will get digested! Even if they are brave that’s foolish!’ I quickly flew away from that…thing. I flew in the opposite direction of where the metal-bird was heading and quickly got to a small town of people who were walking around like ants and doing their normal things and jobs. ‘I can’t see any dragons… Were they all killed because of me? Just because I wanted to protect the humans from destroying themselves.’ I thought bitterly. ‘No I can’t let myself down now. I waited 1000 years for this and I will make my failure to protect the dragons up!’ I flew lower and looked at the people. ’I must find the right host. But that won’t be easy with this many people around, who obviously good connections to others have. Those would look trough my disguise sooner or later.’ I suddenly saw the aura of a dragon in a human body. ’Seems like one of my companions are already in the process of turning the people.’ I thought. ’I guess I could look through these big structures for a possible host.’ I phased trough the wall of some building and saw that it was just like multiple houses stacked upon each other. ’Interesting. They still amaze me even after what happened. ‘ Flashbacks of the fateful day came to me. The pain of being stabbed, the pain of magical attacks and the pain of being betrayed. I shook my head to get rid of the thoughts. ‘Back to my original goal. I can’t think about this stuff now. They will get what they deserve sooner or later’ with that I begun to fly through the weird stacked houses and looking for clues for a good host. I thought about the humans in these. ’No good specimen here. All of them live in a family and it would be dangerous to live in my dragon-forms so close to other humans and right in this city too. I need to get to the outer parts of the city, but in which direction?’ I pondered. After a minute or two I decided to head west on the main road. While I flew I came across a few signs. One of them had a name on it, which I couldn’t read. After 10 minutes of flying I came to 4 houses which stood a little bit away from each other. ‘Hmm this could be perfect for me. Not many people around and a bit away from the city.’ I got to the biggest of the 4 houses. A red one with a black roof and some blue things on it. ‘Probably decoration.’ I thought. ‘Humans always liked such things.’ So I got into it. In I were 4 humans 2 females and 2 males. ’A pretty normal family. 2 Mates and their hatchlings. No wait… Humans called them husband, wife and their kids if I’m not mistaking.’ They sat there and talked, but one of them, the male kid, sat a little bit farther away from the others and wore a black coat with a hood. ‘An outcast huh? I could use that.‘ I decided to look into his room and what I saw there surprised me greatly! ‘Pictures and statues of dragons everywhere! He seems to like our race. That will make things even easier!’ I decided this would be a great host. An outcast and a dragon fanatic. Just perfect! Just as I decided the door opened and the male stepped in. I would guess he’s around 23 years old with brown-blond hair, around 1.70 meters and green eyes. ‘So how should I do this?’ I wondered.’ The classic method with the TF-stone, with magic or I will force his mind to adapt to me.’ I observed him for a minute, while he sat at a shiny lit up plate with letters on the bottom half. I searched in his mind for the name and apparently it was a ‘Laptop’ of some sort. He looked at dragons. ‘He seems to really love us’ Just because of that, I decided for the most painless method. I would give him a TF-stone, with a letter on it that said: “ If you crush this stone, you will get your greatest wish will be fulfilled” Wanting individuals are always easier to take over. It would almost be too easy!
The stone appeared on his table and he jumped at that, while I snickered at his reaction. “What the hell is that!?” He said. He read the letter and started to grin, while I did the same. ‘He took the bait! Yes!’ He took the stone and then after a couple of seconds crushed it in his hand. I grinned even wider with my draconic muzzle. First he begun to rub his hand, which looked like it was changing to a jet-black, where a couple of seconds later the same colored scales shot out, with a few blood-red bigger plates above them. Everywhere scales started to grow and blue-markings began to glow everywhere. I knew what came next and put a sound-silencing spell around this room. Seconds later loud sounds of crushing bones could be heard and he screamed in pain and fell forward, while his body reshaped, too look like a bipedal dragon. His face pushed out and formed a draconic muzzle formed with sharp predator-teeth and his hair fell out. You could hear a ripping sound as his tail formed and ripped his trousers to shreds, where (thankfully) was nothing to see. His body got bigger and bigger now standing 2.55 meters tall. Spikes grew on his back, head and on his tail, where additionally a blood-red tail blade formed, dripping with deadly venom. Blood-red talons had formed on his 4 now 3 clawed hands, too dripping with venom. His eyes had changed to slitted reptilian eyes, while two large bulges grew on his back and then ripped and 2 jet-black wings with blood-red membranes came out splattered with blood. During his transformation, the former humans screams quieted down into whimpers. As his transformation ended he fell unconscious from the stress and pain. I kept away from his mind, because it was too unstable at the moment to take over his mind.
I got my body ready to be taken over. Now I just need to wait for him to wake up and then I’ll show myself and invade his mind after he got used to his body.
I grinned at the thought of a real body again.
