Freddy stared up at the human, bracing himself to run. But all the other cats were nodding. Thomas said from his perch on the bookcase,"Yes. Would you be willing to teach him, Shidou?" Suddenly the human seemed familiar to Freddy. Inky black hair...blue eyes...quiet voice...but Freddy didn't understand. He'd never seen this person before. Then he realized something, and looked around. The cat who'd attacked him outside was not in the room. No, wait, he was in the room. Freddy looked at the human Thomas had called Shidou, and thought of how he had talked in cat language, and understood what it meant to "morph." Shidou had become human. And a strange one. Unlike Freddy's housefolk, Shidou's eyes were...thinner, and his black hair hung in his blue eyes and partialy covered his slightly pointed ears. Shidou replied to Thomas,"I guess. If no one else wants to." A lot of the she-cats suddenly turned into humans and said,"Me! Me! I'll do it!" Thomas turned human, too. He resembled his cat form, with his ginger hair and excited brown eyes. He looked about four seasons older than Shidou. "It's settled, then!" he announced. "Shidou will teach Freddy to morph!" There were disappointed moans until Thomas added,"Now, who wants to teach him human language?" Suddenly Freddy could feel the excitement in the air as the girls called out,"Me! Me!" Then Ariel stepped up in human form. Her brown hair hung down to her hips, and her amber eyes glowed as she said,"I will." Thomas nodded, saying,"Then Ariel will teach Freddy to speak human!" Then Shidou was suddenly a cat again, padding up a staircase Freddy hadn't noticed. Freddy quickly followed. Shidou padded to a room with no windows and morphed again. Then he turned to Freddy and said,"When I was first learning to morph, I found it useful to just close my eyes and imagine myself going through the process of morphing. I imagined myself lifting off my front paws, my knees bending the other way, my nose getting longer, my thumbs growing longer and closer to my fingers." Freddy tried it. He closed his eyes and thought of it, but when he opened his eyes, it hadn't worked. Shidou told him,"It almost worked. You opened your eyes too soon." Freddy nodeed and tried it again. Then again. And again. After about the fortieth fail, he sat down with a huff. Shidou's expression still hadn't changed, and he looked on silently. Freddy, half out of anger toward Shidou, decided to try again, fully expecting to fail a forty-first time. Of course, it actually worked that time. Shidou nodded approvingly, almost smiling. He held up a full-length mirror for Freddy to see himself in, and Freddy couldn't suppress a gasp. He looked the same age as Shidou, with brown hair that just covered the top of his forehead. His green eyes were now human, and they were wide with surprise. Shidou led him back downstairs, and he followed shakily, not used to walking on two legs. When he got downstairs, everyone was in human form, and at the sight of Freddy, some cheered, some gaped, and some said out loud,"He's already done it?" Ariel came up to him, excitement in her eyes as she said to him,"Great! Now I can teach you human language! It should take longer than morphing did." And it did. It took nearly two moons. Still, soon Freddy could speak perfectly. Today he'd gone outside with Ariel. They walked past his old home, and Freddy saw the neighbor boy riding on something called a bike. The boy looked at Freddy, and his jaw dropped.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

My new owner took me to her house. The house had a big chestnut tree in the yard and was inhabited by several people. There was the tall man,whom my owner called Uncle Paton,a boy who was about 10 or 11 in people years who's name was Charlie,two nice women who my owner called Mom and Masie,and an evil old lady who hated me at first sight (and vice versa) named Grandma Bone. My owner was named Tamara,and she called me Hermes. She had three rats as well as me,and their names where Gabool,Saltear,and Graypatch. Two days after Tamara broght me to her house,she hid me under her hat and went somewhere. I heard her talking to a boy,who I think was named Gabriel. Then she stood and walked a bit. Suddenly she randomly yelled "Tanc!" It was very strange. Turns out "Tanc" was a person's name. "What a strange name!" I thoght. I decided I was not staying under Tamara's hat. I bounded off of her head and stood blinking in the sunlight. I was facing a tall boy with spikey blound hair staring at me. "You must be Tanc." I mewed. I don't think he understood me. Humans genraly arn't that smart. I shook myself off and padded threw a big pair of doors into a silent hallway. Suddenly,a girl shrieked. Someone yelled "Who's cat is that?" Another voice said "I bet it's the magican brat's." There where murmers of agreement. I glared at the people and padded into the hallway on the left. There was a squeaking of wheeles and an ancient man in a wheelchair rolled into the hall. He skidded to a stop at the sight of me and yelled "Harold! Who let THAT in?" Another man came out of a room and said "Ayers,most likly. She is the only full magican in the school." He scooped me up and walked back into the big hallway. Tamara set me on her hat brim once she had me back. I never left her hat in that building except to sleep. Eventuly the old man got used to me poping up around every corner,thogh it anoyed him. He kept saying things about spying and "That blasted magican". I got used to him,too. Now that is the end of this story. Mabey I will write another. I dont really know...Was this review helpful?
