250 word assignment from English Classes, that started it all. Actually after handing out the copies of this bundled with other exercises, the teacher never told us to write it, but I did just for fun.

 

Write a story, that ends with the following sentence: What a relief it was to change into a human being again. (200 - 250 words)

 

What a relief ! (~230 words)

 

Sometimes they ask me questions. The beginners ask what or who am I. It is kind of dull and boring. Slightly experienced in life inquire how it is to be me or if I inherit feelings and thoughts from the previous forms I took. I never answer such questions, dead do not need answers. Rarely do I stumble upon a hunter instead of prey. They quickly rush to fight, but in the end I always prevail. The hunter becomes hunted, it is the great cycle of life. Evil? Read backwards it is just an order, for me, to live. My main principle.

“Why have you told me everything?” he uttered. I whispered to his ear: “Because I am not an ordinary shapeshifter. I am the doppelganger, I do impersonate only those that I’ve killed before.”

He tried to back off, but he was trapped. His escape ended up quickly. I caught him driving my sharp fangs through his chest. If you want to keep fit you got to challenge yourself. Unfortunately my prey hadn’t provided any.

His face become pale while I was cutting his heart out in order to consume it.

My body began changing: claws became nails, face’s features softened, internal organs moved to their new places. My voice sounded much smoother and more pleasant to the ear now.

What a relief it was to change into a human being once again.

A quite unusual story, I really enjoyed reading it.

"..much more smoother..." Here it should be either "much smoother" or "more smooth" (maybe "way more smooth").  The way it is, it is wrong grammar.

Also: it is "pleasant to *the* ear".

If I could rate, I would give your little story a 10. You say so much with so few words. Thumbs up!

My pleasure. :-)

Thank *you* for writing and posting this little jewel.

Now, a "more" is missing before "pleasant"... but all this is minor stuff.
