Other Side Of The Bone
Chapter 1 - The Key To Humanity
I smelt it before I saw it. The big room with the doors really DID have something inside it. And when I knew what it was, I went crazy. It was a giant humanity machine. That could turn animals into humans.
The room was barren. By barren, I mean totally empty. All it took was one step inside and bam, the door was shut. Damn. I cursed to myself. Those damned guards shut me in. Should've known they weren't letting me see Dee... I looked around the room, scanning everything. It was just grey and white. Thats all us dogs can see. We see no colour. So, it was rather bland. I sniffed the air. Big mistake. THIS ROOM SMELLS LIKE...OLD PEOPLE. I thought. For the record, I don't like that smell one bit.
I sat down in the furthest corner of the room, settling down and sighing to myself. How did we get here? One second, me, my owner, and her other two dogs were walking down the lane peacefully. Next second, we've been snatched up, seperated, and stuck in these lame rooms. Annoying. And the championship of the Agility Trials were today aswell. It would've been my 7th time winning the crown. I'm a smart dog, even if I do say so myself. I know enough tricks to last a life time, and i'm strong, fast, and reliable. Oh wait, isn't the word loyal a better word to use?
Suddenly, I felt the ground shake around me. I looked up. The light attatched to the cieling was shaking.
CRAP! Whats going on!? I barked. No answer. Not that I was expecting one.
Then it came. A giant "Bweeeeeeem" and a massive flash of light. I could see it from the tiny window on the door.
And then there was the scream. Something was screaming. It was a dogs scream. But something wasn't right. Its like the scream was becoming a human scream. Like the creatures bones were bending....
