9. Control

Mack's POV

I was in a gigantic meadow, with all kinds of flowers with all colors. I don't know how I got there, I was just in my flat when I saw what Niall did. How he killed that girl- against his will, I would like to think. It all was happening to fast. I started walking forward in the meadow, but I didn't see anything to go to. All I saw was an endless space of flowers and colors. I sighed and just kept walking. Just then an enormous lake pop up right in front of me. It wasn't a lake for long though, it almost automatically turned into a giant mirrror. I was very confused, but I went and looked into the mirror anyway. I saw me, regular me. I didn't get the point of this. I was about to turn around and walk away when I transformed. I saw myself change, and morf, into something else. I was a kangaroo. A kangaroo, really? What did I eat? Well, this is very strange. Then I changed again, back into myself, but with wings.

I woke up. Wow, what did I eat before I went to sleep? I was sweating, and breathing very heavily. I was on my couch in the living room, and I don't even remember what happened after the fair. Niall walked in from the kitchen, and when he saw me, stopped dead in his tracks. He got wide eyed, and dropped his phone.

"It's true..." He wispered, probably to himself.

"What?" I asked. He just shook his head and pointed a shaky finger to a point right next to me. I turned my head and saw feathers. Feathers exactly like the wings in my dream. I shot up and ran to the mirror on the wall . It was exactly what I thought, I looked like I did in my dream- including the wings. I went as wide eyed as Niall, and screamed. I was screaming for two seconds until Niall came behind me and put a hand over my mouth. He waited for me to breath again and removed his hand.

"W-what's going on? How could this happen?" I asked him, "I have wings, and I can move them!" I said, moving my wings out, seeing that they're at least ten feet long.

"Mack, listen to me." He said turning me towards him, resting his hands on my shoulders. "You're a shapeshifter. I'm in no way joking. You can do anything, and you're more powerful than you would ever think of. Kevin was even afraid of you,and he's afraid of nothing," Niall explained.

"But how- This is so insa- Dear gods!" I had accidently flapped my wings down to fast and I flew up and hit the ceiling. I somehow learned how to keep myself flying, and flap my wings, so I crossed my arms over my chest.

"She, now I'm flying. How am I flying?" I asked.

"I don't know, but you need to learn to control  your abilities. If you don't you'll randomly change, and you won't be able to go out in public." Niall said.

"Okay, but how will I do that? I am already getting sick of changing into random thi-EEE" I said, as my wings disappeared and I fell. Niall was immediatly under me and caught me as I yelped. Not because of the way he caught me- he caught me bridal style and it was fine- but because fangs popped out and cut my lip. Niall put me down as I touched my lip.

"How do you get used to this? It stings," I said. I touched one of my fangs, it felt weird and made my finger tingle.

"Just do. By the way your eyes are red." He said. I looked at him strangely and walked back to the mirror, now two feet away. I looked and sure enough, blood red eyes.

"Ugh, what next," I sighed. Then, as if on cue, I turned into a black girble.

"Wow, just wow." I squeked, my voice now very high.

"Okay, Mack, you need to learn how to control your changing. Just focus on what you look like, then wish it to be real. If you do that we can go out in public again." Niall said. So I did, except I decided I'd usethis to my advantage. Niall might have me change back, but I should try. I changed my teeth to be perfectly white and straight, then fixed my fingers because they're abnormal, and I took off my acne. Ohi put red tips on my hair, because I've always wanted them. I took a deep breath, and wished. A second later, I was human and looking into the mirror. I looked exactly as I had imagined, yay! I looked at Niall, his arms crossed and a frown.

"What?" I asked.

"You know that's not how you look. Change back." He said, still in the same pose.

"Yeah, but this is how I've always wanted to look. I didn't even change that much anyway," I said. I looked in the mirror, and flattened my hair a bit.

"Mack," He said more sternly this time. I sighed.

"Fine," I focused on how I really look, but I kept my hair like it was. I was myself again a second later, and finally Niall had a smirk on his face.

"Why do you care so much, anyway?" I asked.

"Just because you have to be yourself," He said simply.

"I'm still me even if I look different," He paled a bit, looking nervous.

"Well,, I-I... l-like the wa-ay you look..." He said. What the? My eyes widened in shock.

"But..." I started. I really had no response. Did he just say he liked me? That made no sense, I liked him but I didn't think he liked me. He stepped closer to me so that our noses were inches apart, I could feel his hot breath on my lips.

"I can read minds, Mack. I have since I Turned. So yes, I do like you like that. That's why I didn't want you to change." My heart started racing. I was excited, happy, and also kind of scared. I was scared because if Niall and I started dating, then broke up it might ruin our friendship. At this point, though, I had to take a risk. He leaned in and kissed me. It was the best kiss, especially since it was my first. Our lips fit perfectly together. Niall pulled me closer so there was no space between us, his hands around my waist, mine resting on his chest. It lasted a brilliant ten seconds, until the passionate kiss ended. We pulled back and just looked into each others' eyes for what felt like eternity. Best. Day. Ever.
