A happy little story
« on: January 30, 2004, 07:53:54 am »
Halloween Masion

It was Halloween, the sun was setting, and an orange light hung over the sky as Simon and Julia went out trick or treating. Their plan was to hit the rich areas of town and the places that people claimed to be haunted, like madam Gorey's mansion. Madam Gorey was rumoured to be a witch and to give out candy that did strange stuff, some people claimed it was scary and some people claimed it was good, either way, no one hung around there at Halloween, Simon didn't believe in magic, and besides, the creepiness of the house was attractive to them.
After an hour of trick or treating the two racoon suited figures mad their way to the mansion, it was now night time, and the wind was getting up, blowing through the dead trees
"wow" said Julia "This place really is scary. I've heard that its always night here on Halloween"
"you hear a lot of things" Simon Replied, "but yeah, it is kinda scary" He smiled "Shall we?" and opened the front gate, which made an ominous creak as it swung open. Julia shivered
They walked up the front path, the only sound was that of the gravel crunching under their feet. After what seemed like ages they reached the door and looked back "Funny" Simon said "I could have sworn that the garden was smaller than this from the gate…" He smiled "so who's going to ring the bell?"
"Dare ya!" Julia replied giggling
"Ok" He replied and pulled on the rusty bellpull. There was a sound like an ancient church bell, ringing throughout the house, and the door creaked slowly opened, by itself, revealing the dark aperture into the house
"Probably automatic" Said Simon, shivering a little, but walking forwards into the house.
Inside the house was as ramshackle as the outside, the entrance hall was full of dusty furniture and shrouded pictures. He lifted the shroud on one and stared, a very accurate picture of a racoon, it seemed to stand out of the picture at him. "How cute!" Exclaimed Julia, looking at the picture "Raccoons are my favourite animal"
Simon smiled "I know" He said, "That's why I chose raccoons as our costumes"
They walked into the library, it was, surprisingly well lit, but still dusty, at the end of the room was a big chair in front of a table, its back turned towards them. Apart from the shelves of dusty books they were the only furniture.
"you think she's in the chair?" whispered Julia
"I'm gonna go check" replied Simon, Tiptoeing forwards. It took him some time to reach the chair, but nothing stirred, He put his hand on the back of it and pulled it around, and shouted in surprise "it's a skeleton!" His heart was pounding, as he examined it closely, feeling relived he pushed it aside "Its just plastic, this lady must have a sense of humour, that's all"
"Thank you child" came a voice from behind him, it was kindly, she sounded like Simons grandma, and he found himself feeling more at ease. "I see you found my little trick. Please follow me into the dining room, your friend is waiting there" With this she began to walk out of the room.
Simon followed and was led along a seires of winding corridors until they came to a door that seemed to be in far better repair than the rest of the house, she opened it. Simon wondered how Julia had got there so fast. As if reading his mind the woman says "She wondered off, she was curious"
Simon nodded and sat at the table "Trick or treat" he said
Mrs Gorey smiled " I thought you'd say that. Just a second" she said, and left through a door
"So, what do you think?" Simon asked
"I think she's sweet" Julia replied, "a little creepy, but sweet"
Simon shrugged "yeah, shes a bit creepy"
The old woman walked back in with a plate with two huge cookies. To Simon they smelt amazing. He found himself wanting to try one. Seeming to sense this, the woman offered one to him saying "I think you'll like this", and he took it gladly, taking a huge bite as Julia received hers. He immediately began to feel strange, his skin felt itchy and suddenly warmer, and Julia was staring at him, her eyes wide, still chewing on the cookie "y-y-you have fur" she stammered
He put a hand to his face, feeling the soft fuzz growing there, noticing that his nails were lengthening and turning black. His nose began to twitch as it pushed out with his face, taking in the musty smells of the room, he could smell everything, he realised that he had to look up to see Julia, but he could see that she was starting to go through the same thing he assumed he was going through, the mask of the suit had disappeared, and a mask of fur black was forming among the grey. As he watched, her nose turned black, and she too began to shrink.
Simon grabbed onto the edge of the table, but found his hands unable to grab onto the edge because they were now paws, he slipped, falling to all fours as a ringed tail burst out of his trousers, which were now far to big for him, he tried to talk, to cry out, but all that came out was a series of warbles and chitters, but Julia seemed to understand, moving over to him on all four paws, and nuzzling against him. This seemed to calm him down as the last of his changes completed , he crawled out of what had been his shirt, nuzzling back and finding himself churring. He looked up at the woman and chittered, asking why did you do this.
The woman smiled and said "think of it as a holiday, you can go out into the woods, and spend the night, in the morning, you will be human again, if you want, you can stay as a racoon for as long as you want. And don't worry, no one will realise you've gone when your back, and you will live as long as a human" She indicated a cat flap "just go on out"
The pair did so, wondering into the forest chirttering and murring happily, talking to each other
"Wow, everything's so big now" Said Julia, her voice full of awe
Simon nodded, sniffing, testing all of the smells of the forest, the smell of the trees, other animals "everything's so much more intense!, I could smell the forest before but now!" He smiled
"yeah, its like someone turned the volume up too" They both giggled a  bit at the joke, and wondered deeper into the forest. They stopped when Simons belly rumbled.
"I wonder what there is too eat around here" Simon asked
"Bugs and stuff, were not that particular about what we eat" Julia Smiled, sniffing around in the foliage, and coming up with a few bugs in her snout, "mmmm…." She said, her mouth full "haf some, ifs good"
He smiled and dug his own nose into the ground uprooting a few bugs , he was amazed at how good they tasted.
The pair rooted around until they were full, and found a hole to sleep in for the night, they layed curled up around each other, purring and basking in the feeling of being surrounded in each others fur. Little did they know that this was just the start of their adventures…

well, heres part 2! enjoy!

Halloween Mansion Part 2: a new addition to the family

It has been two years since Simon and Julia ventured into the forest, they spent a week and found that they could not leave, preferring the forms of raccoons. They have successfully raised a litter of cubs and live in a series of burrows that the old lady built around the forest. Kale didn&#8217;t know this. He just liked to look at the racoons playing in the warm, summer forest, it made a welcome break from the rough treatment he got at home. He often wondered what it would be like to be an animal, to not have to tolerate his father, but he didn&#8217;t seriously think it would ever happen. Eventually he sighed and left to go back to his &#8216;family&#8217;, leaving a few bits of food, as he always did.
Simon and Julia watched him go.
&#8220;poor kid&#8221; chittered Simon
&#8220;I wish there was something we could do for him&#8221; Julia replied
Simon thought for a second, before nuzzling his mate and smiling &#8220;maybe we can&#8230;&#8221; and they wondered off towards the house to talk to Mrs Gorey&#8230;
Later that evening, Kale got home, tired out, he ran straight into his father who had been waiting at the windeow through which Kale usually snuck into the house through
&#8220;what were you doin out?&#8221; He said
&#8220;I was just walking&#8230; out by the forest&#8221; Kale replied, his face set, he knew that he wouldn&#8217;t escape this without some kind of punishment
&#8220;You&#8217;d like me to believe that would you. I knows you was smokin&#8221; He smirked, a particularly nasty smirk that must have taken years to develop.  He had an innate ability to ignore the truth even if it hit him with a big poited stick while wearing a large neon sign proclaiming that it was the truth.
&#8220;I was just out walking&#8221; Kale replied, unable to stop himself
&#8220;don&#8217;t lie to me boy!&#8221; The mans anger was rising
&#8220;b-but I was&#8221; Kale stammered afraid. He saw the fist, then he blacked out
Kale came too very slowly, his whole body felt numb, so he hadn&#8217;t been beaten badly. He groaned, rolling over and looking out of the window, seeing the figures of two raccoons there, scrabbling at the latch. He stood up and opened the small window, letting the pair in. one of them rubbed against his ankles, murring, the other jumped onto his shoulder and smiled chittering&#8230; It was almost as if it was trying to tell kale something. Kale smiled
&#8220;I&#8217;m sorry&#8230; I don&#8217;t understand&#8221;
The raccoon tried again, almost human words among its chitters &#8220;here chitter &#8230; help&#8230; you&#8230; chitter&#8221;
Kale smiled, &#8220;help me&#8230;. But how?&#8221;
&#8220;make chitter like us&#8230;&#8221;
Kale smiled, this had to be a dream, but he&#8217;d do anything to get away
&#8220;wh&#8230;what do I have to do?&#8221;
&#8220;do&#8230; chitter Just relax&#8221;
&#8220;Oh&#8221; he replied, glad for the invitation to lie back, and doing so as the raccoon climbed onto his stomach, chittering something.
Kale immediately found his stomach itching, and tried top get up to take off his shirt, but he couldn&#8217;t move, he could just lie there and feel the iching spread up his stomach and onto his face. He began to feel a strange sensation in his mouth as he began to spot something poking out between his eyes&#8230; I have a muzzle! He thought I&#8217;m really becoming a raccoon! A huge smile spread across his lips as his muzzle finished pushing out, his body now shrinking as his hands and feet began to change, presumably becoming his new paws.
&#8220;almost there, just a few minutes&#8221; He heard the first raccoon chitter to him, smiling as he felt something pushing out of the base of his spine, he assumed it was his tail.
He seemed to have stopped shrinking now, his shirt a huge cavernous mass, the size and the smell of human on it suddenly, making him a bit scared, instinctively he started to call out a sound that he knew was a call to his mother for help, and was not surprised when the other raccon answered, poking her head through the head hole of the shirt, far bigger than Kale she lead him out, nuzzling at him when he came out and chittering  &#8220;welcome to the family dear&#8221;
&#8220;thanks&#8230; mum&#8221; Kale replied &#8220;but how do we get out&#8221;
&#8220;simple dear, cling onto my back and we&#8217;ll climb up the curtain&#8221; Kale could see the male already up at the window, gesturing for the other two to follow as kale got onto his new mothers back as she began to ascend the curtain. It didn&#8217;t take them long to reach the window, and then it was out into the night and off to the forest behind the houses and next to the old mansion.
Kale looked around the huge forest with awe &#8220;wow&#8230; everything&#8217;s so big now, and so intense&#8230;&#8221; He chattered happily.  his stomach grumbled as they approached the burrow, and Julia laughed
&#8220;looks like you&#8217;re hungry, I&#8217;ll feed you when we get inside
Kale nodded thankfully and followed her in. The burrow was large and twisting, but kale felt at home there, it was comfy to feel wanted as Julia offered him a teat and he suckled happily until he was full.
Over the next couple of days he got used to having brothers and sisters, playing happily with them for hours on end&#8230;
