I came to the next morning still aching from my fall earlier. It was light out, but barely, must have been six. I felt weird, off balanced, but shook it off as being achy and groggy. I tried to stand but only was able to push myself up to sit. I tried looking around for the others, but I was still seeing spots from the white light last night. I still was feeling weird and couldn't pinpoint what it was.

"Drake, Kyle!" I called

There was a rustling that came from behind me

"Yeah?" Kyle moaned

"You alright?" I yelled blindly

"Yeah, just a bit banged up, where's Drake?"

"I dunno!" I responded, I gained enough power to stand up and I turned to Kyle who shielded his eyes from the rising sun.

I walked over feeling weirder and weirder with each step. My pants seemed to be looser, but my shirt slightly tighter. Reaching Kyle, I helped him up.

"Thanks ma-" He began. He looked at me in such a state of confusion to the point where I became paranoid.

"What is it?" I asked, but before he could tell me, my face began to burn as if it was drenched in acid. Kyle caught me as I screamed in pain due to the horrific burning sensation. It soon faded and he helped me back up pushing my chest but quickly tearing away.


It was then when I realized what was wrong.

"Give me your Ipod!" I demanded, my voice sounding weird. He handed it over without hesitation and I unlocked it opening the camera and faced it forward. I jumped in surprise and fear dropping the device. All of a sudden I was approached from behind and grabbed by the neck pinned to a tree looking into the eyes of Drake.

"Drake, no!" screamed Kyle

"Who are you and what did you do to my friend?" Forced Drake with a terrifying expression on which I have never seen him wear.

"What are you talking about it's me Andrew!" I cried, but Drake's grip tightened

"Don't play games with me! Tell me why you are wearing his clothes!" Drake's face became more terrifying as his eyes grew completely black.

"Drake it really is him!" Kyle tried to convince, as he shakes his twin.

"It really is me," I gasped, Drake's arm began to glow golden and I started feeling weak, "if I were anywhere else, do you think I'd know how we became friends?"

Drake loosened his grip intrigued, his arm fading back to  normal.

"Tell me, how?" 

I gulped, "When you were brought to the home we were in the same room and I was playing with cars, smashing them together. Then you began to cry and ran into a corner, so I followed and asked what's wrong. You told me that your parents died in a car crash and it reminded you of them. I then asked if you wanted to play and promised that I wouldn't smash them together anymore."

His eyes returned to normal and he slowly set me on my feet. I collapsed into Kyle's arms gasping for air.

"It really is you," Drake commented under his breath, "sorry, you just don't look like yourself, I got scarred."

"It's ok." I sighed, I then took a look in my shirt to find it bulging into two balloon shapes and rubbed my crotch finding it flat.

"You look like Celest." Kyle said

"I got the hint," I responded, standing up on my own, "but how is that possible?"

"I dunno." Drake shrugged

"Did you feel weird when you were choking me?" I asked

"No why?"

"Because your eyes went completely black and your arm glowed gold and started making me feel weak!"

Kyle started thinking then noticed something.

"Guys," Kyle motioned to the crater, "It's gone!"

We rushed over to the crater noticing that it was empty but appeared bleached white from the bright light.

"Do you think that the meteor did this to us?" asked Drake

"I dunno, but what I'm wondering is why it only affected you two and not me!"

Drake and I shrugged at eachother. I began to feel to feel normal in the new body and after the initial surprise, everyone else seemed to be alright with the change to. After Kyle gave up on his slight investigation we realized what time it is.

"Shit," screamed Kyle as he checked his watch, "we got to get home before Elga wakes up!"


We got home just before Elga's alarm even went off. After rinsing off we changed and ran downstairs eating breakfast trying to act natural. Without even having a clue, Elga strolled past us to get her morning cup of coffee. She flipped on the countertop television on as she waited for her drink to pour. The three of us coward in our bowl of cereal trying to avoid eye contact. We knew if she found out what we did last night we would be punished cruely.

"Breaking news for you out in Wheaten county, a beautiful meteor shower turns dangerous as eye witnesses claim that three shooting stars fell from the night sky." claimed the anchor as the screen turned on.

Elga grabbed her mug and sipped it as she listened to the morning report.

"Did you all enjoy last night's earthquake?"

"Yes Mrs. Harding." the three of us reluctantly responded.

She smiled smugly, "And you all went back to sleep, you never left?"

She knew what we did last night, we all knew it, we tried to lie anyway to eliminate any punishment.

"We were in our room all night!" yelled Drake as he dropped his bowl in the sink.

The tall and extremely slim woman grabbed Drake by the collar, "I know you snuck out last night, I watched from my window as you scouted for it last night in the woods. Now if I turn that thing into the news we could get publicity, I can make an attraction and then get money off it." The bell from the hallway's grandfather clock chimed and Elga checked her watch, "After you get home from school you're going to tell me where the meteor is, or else you're going into the 'Hole'!"

She threw Drake on the ground and we all grabbed our backpacks and ran out the door.
