I shut my eyes tight, for a good minute. After I didn’t hear sound or motion, I pried them open.
And what I saw scared me.
A white sticky liquid had come from Elmer’s shoulder, arched itself around, and stopped the dirk halfway down to his back. The glue was twisted around the knife, and was sinking, seemingly returning to Elmer’s shoulder. Creeping downwards, swallowing the knife with it. Elmer gave a strange noise as the knife slipped into Elmer’s shoulder, and his flesh returned to normal, the knife gone. He stood up straight, and I caught sight of his face. His glasses were cracked, the eyes behind the crooked flame glowing white and reflecting nothing, not a hint of life in them.
He jerked, and his hands let flow the same white fluid, which itself took the shape of his forearm and hands, growing to three times their size. He looked down at them, almost admiring these.. things.. and then back up to the boy, who yelped and took a step back, hitting a hole in the street and falling backwards, onto his back. Elmer raised his right arm, and the fluid’s hand part grew five times as much, which he opened it and slammed the fluid-palm onto the boy, covering face and body of the boy, who struggled to break from it, but couldn’t.
I heard a yell to the left of me, to see Mitch himself had changed. His eyes glowed ghastly green. His hands also dyed green, halfway up his forearms, with a green aura circling around his hands. Then, trees collapsed in the nearby woods, and a huge roar echoed through the street. Out jumped a huge gorilla. It was Bonnet, but he had changed. Three times larger, green fur, glowing red eyes, and.. spikes. On it’s back. It’s teeth poked out a god two inches out from the bottom lip, and he grabbed one kid and threw him, swiping the other three holding Mitch with one very large arm.
The kids holding me down ran, ran as fast as they could, knowing that I might break out too. I didn’t feel any stranger though. Why was this happening to Mitch and Elmer? I heard a scream. A boy had tried to shoot Bonnet, and the gorilla had used his spikes on him, plucking them from his back and tossing them at the kid, one had landed in his eye. The kid laid in the street, dyed by a puddle of blood, and motionless.
Elmer’s arms returned to normal and Mitch came out of his trance. Bonnet himself turned into a very, very, very small gorilla, down to a size that you could hold him in your palm, and had lost his mutations. We stood looking at each other, and grinned, we had won. But the dead kids caught our eyes. We looked around, at each other, and ran. Ran like hell, slamming and locking ourselves into Mitch’s house.
