Rick squirmed and convulsed violently as the pain filling his body got worse with each second. Whats happening to me?! he cried. He tried to remove the bracer around his wrist one last time but was unable to. He tried repeatedly to stand but the pain was too much. The only thing Rick could do was to just lie there. Rick waited for nearly ten minutes while his whole body changed. When his body finally did stop transforming it took another five minutes for the pain to subside. After that Rick slowly sat up and sighed in relief. He slowly looked around and saw the strange plants that had previously surrounded him were now dead and withered.
Rick looked down at his hands but what he saw surprised him. Ricks hands had become claws with three fingers each, the same went for his feet however his legs had become digigrade, much like a dogs back legs. Rick's body was now covered in extremely dark purple scales, while the scales that covered his chest were large and shield-like, they were flint black in color.
Whats happened to me? Rick asked himself while looking at a new tail which slowly swayed left and right behind him. At the end of the tail were four axe like blades that grew in the shape of an X if viewed at from behind. The back of Ricks head had ten silver spikes growing out of it and his neck, back, and tail had a row of razor sharp spikes.
Im a dragon? Rick asked, But how? He stood up and looked at his wrist, the bracer was still there. Rick looked around and started to walk but when he got to the end of the now dead meadow he stopped. What if I cant find anything else? He said, I cant just leave what if I get lost again. Rick started to become angry, he snarled and reared up on his back legs.. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING!!! he yelled as he flung his fists at the ground.
Just as his fist made contact with the ground a bright flash engulfed him, it was too bright too see. When the lights faded he was very confused, Rick was now in another strange place, only this place wasnt just an empty void. It looked almost like a temple had been floating in space and eventually shattered into hundreds of pieces. Rick was standing on a stone platform and nearby was a smaller platform that floated back and forth between his platform and another distant one. On the largest platform, which had half a temple still intact on it nearly half a mile away, he saw a glowing purple aura. What is this place? Rick asked It might be mostly empty but at least theres something here. Hello young dragon. A voice suddenly said. Rick was startled the voice and jumped forward nearly falling of the platform. He stood back up and turned around. Standing before him was a giant silver dragon about three times his size. Whoa
Rick said Who- who are you? The dragon smiled and answered, I am the chronicler but you may call me Ignitus.
