It is a normal day, just like any other. Suddenly something changes. It is midday and the sun changes to the moon although the brightness doesn’t change.
Obviously, people around the world are giving their attention to this phenomenon. Then, in an instant everything goes dark. All the power throughout the world has disappeared. The ground began to shake beneath the feet of the ever so confused public. “Earthquake!” people yell, but others who know what an earthquake is like, disagree. It felt different to them. Out of the skies emerged giant black holes that seem to be destroying everything. Yet the humans and animals are not being consumed by the mass darkness.
As soon as there is nothing but nature and humans left in the world, people started to change. Some sprout hair over their bodies others become covered in scales. Each individual seems to be turning into an animal. Not just any animals, but animals that fit their characteristics. I see a man who runs a big corporation, turn into a snake. I watch a family man with four daughters, turn into a fatherly lion. Then it happens, I come back to myself and I slowly feel my body and mind changing. I look down to the ground to see my reflection in a mere puddle. I do not know what I see. I do not recognize what I’ve become.
