Chapter 3: Oh no! Oh no!
Nick sat next to Lady, he grabbed a rock a flicked it at the wall. He watched it come back to him. He then knocked the rock up into the air.
Lady watched him, she rested her head on his shoulder. She was Nicks age. She however was made with the mind of an adult woman. She wanted to tell the were-jaguar how much she liked him, but she was afraid of him not liking her back.
Nick sighed. "Your afraid, tell me why." He said with a nod. "You can't lie..."
She thought to herself 'Oh no...How did he know? Well I might aswell tell him.' She took a deep breath. "Nick...Do you like any girls?" She asked.
He shook his head. "I don't, why do you ask?" He asked looking down at her.
"Well its...Just that I...Nothing." She said as she nodded. 'That went well.' She thought to herself. 'Now he might think I'm wierd.'
"Well come on...I think its time we went back." He said with a nod. He stood up, while bringin her up with him.
She hugged him and kissed his cheek and ran back to her house.
Nick held his hand out. "Wai...Nevermind. She wouldn't here me." He walked back to his house while blushing. He met up with his adopted father.
"Ah Nick just the man I wanted to see. I have alittle present for you. Your mom didn't think it would be a good idea, but I did." He took out a book and some inks and a strange paint brush. He held Nicks right arm and drew a rune marking on it. He then drew on his neck, chest and right leg. "Now you can change whenever you want." He stepped back.
Nick concentrated and then started to change. He looked at his claws. "Awesome dad." He said with a nod. He changed back and gave his father a high five. He then went to the other room.
Jack sighed. "When do I tell him he is not my real son, but an adopted son?" He asked himself. "I'll just wait until he is older. Then I will." He walked into the other room.
Nick was looking outside, Ladys lipstick was on his cheek. "Sorry father, I broke that oath...Not to be kissed unless I was in my teen years."
Jack shook his head. "Its alright son, I know whose lipstick that is, Lady right?" He asked.
Nick nodded. "Yeah, but how did you know?" He asked.
"She is the only one who wears black lipstick on her top lip and blue on her bottom lip." Jack said with a nod. "I gave you those runes so you can change whenever she desires it."
"Which is what she always asks me to do." Nick nodded. "Anyways thanks, but are they permanent?"
"Nope, while you sleep they slowly get absorbed by your skin." Jack nodded.
Nick smiled. "Thanks dad, so where is everyone else?"
"They are getting something for you to eat and some more clothes for everyone." Jack said with a nod.
"Its strange because...I'm the only who eats." He said with a nod. "Oh well, everyone is different."
