If Only In My Dreams

Postby Narrator » Tue Oct 10, 2017 12:37 am

Darkness. Cold. A lack of light and sound.

And then, space around the area in front of Nailah's home seemed to...stretch and snap and distort, like a mirage coming off the road.

And then, with a BANG and a SNAP, Nailah materialized in front of her house, a little shaken and stirred, but otherwise none the worse for wear.

A quick check would indicate that yes, all of Nailah's limbs seemed to be more or less intact, though there was some frost on the tip of her tail from the transport.

A second, more involved check would note that everything around her was far, far too big. Like, a good ten times larger than it should have been.

Nailah would like to say she just braced the darkness with stoic bravery. Yet when she manifests she's screaming loudly, or quietly, considering her adjusted size. Once she realizes reality has returned she slowly calms down, although the door with the symbol sprayed on it towering in front of her quickly makes her realize something went wrong. But at least not horrifically wrong, she asses after doing a quick count of body-parts. Arms, legs, wings, tail. Everything where it should be. She flaps her wings and shoots up into the air to fly around the house and peer into the windows.

Everything seemed fine; no signs of a struggle, holiday decorations were still hung with usual care, Christmas music was on the stereo, and not a creature was stirring. This was until she saw her parents sitting in the living room, facing away from the windows and toward the Christmas tree. At her current size, it was a little easier to make out the grey corner of the duct tape binding her father to his chair.

Nailah frowns and clenches her fists but forces herself to finish doing a full circle around the house. Just in case and also to see if she can find an open window she could slip through.

A kitchen window was open. Huzzah! Unfortunately, there was an unfamiliar tabby cat lounging there. Not huzzah!

"Dangit... Shoo! What are you doing here? Get out!" Nailah whispers harshly at the cat as she flaps in the air a couple inches away from the window.

The cat opened its bright green eyes to regard her with surprise before springing into the kitchen.

"Or inside. Whatever..." Nailah mumbles as she flies through the open window and up towards the ceiling before carefully making her way to the living room, keeping an eye out for any signs of Hazard.

The only people in the living room were her terrified parents. The cat followed and sat to watch from the doorway behind her.

"Mom, dad!" Nailah shouts, although with her current size it's not all that loud. She flies over to them to see if they're hurt in any way. "Are you guys okay? What happened?"

With mouths taped shut, they answered with muffled noises and fearful looks toward the kitchen.

"Don't worry, I came through there. Nobody was in there except for... somebody's... cat...." she trails off before suddenly spinning around to look for the cat.

That was the exact moment the cat leaped at her. "Supurrise!" cried Hazard the cat.

"Gah!" Startled, Nailah tries to flap her wings and get out of the way of the pouncing cat.

His feline grin widened unnaturally as he snapped at her with a maw full of what seemed to be too many teeth, narrowly missing her tail. As she spun in her maneuver, she caught sight of another cat descending the stairs and even more approaching the house from the backyard. They were different breeds but all possessed the same malicious green eyes.

"What the fudge..." At her current size even just one cat would be a challenge and she couldn't circle underneath the ceiling forever. But they are just cats, even if they're controlled by Hazard or whatever was going on here. Flying in a tight curve she whips around and goes for a dive, aiming right for the tape tieing her father to the chair, trying to land on it and tear at it with her claws. A regular sized human wouldn't have too much trouble with a couple cats, right?

She was able to make it there and begin making headway. However, the orange cat was already jumping onto her dad's lap and the second black cat wasn't far behind. Tearing at the heavy duty tape with shrunken claws was going to take more time than she had.

"Dangit!" she mutters under her breath and let's go of the tape, wings snapping open as she flies in a tight curve around, grabbing the cat by the scruff and letting her momentum help her in pulling the dang thing off her Dad's lap. It works pretty well too until everything suddenly seems to collapse in around her as the oversized living room around her shrinks back down to normal size. Or rather, Nailah suddenly snaps back to regular size, sending her and the cat she's holding on to crashing into the coffee table.

The coffee table snapped in half from the sudden impact, sending pieces of an unfinished jigsaw puzzle flying in every direction. The turmoil of the crash freed the cat but it was as dazed as she was. However, the second cat rushed in to continue the attack by leaping onto Nailah and sinking its tiny, sharp teeth into her.

"Get... off!" For a moment she struggles to get up and also handle the ball of fur and claws, earning herself a bunch of painful scrapes before she gets a good grip on the cat and tries to tear it away from herself and hurl it across the room.

The black cat crashed into the crouching orange cat and the two rolled in a tangle of limbs to the patio doors. It was hard to tell where one ended and the other began, but that was probably just because they were literally melding into a mewling blob of twitching cat parts. Perhaps more distressingly, so were the cats outside the door.

Nailah shudders at the sight, but quickly focuses on her parents again and limps over to tear away tape over their mouths before moving on to the one tieing them to the chairs.

"You gotta get out of here, okay? Just get in the car and drive!" she says and spins back around to face the two cat-blobs, dropping into a fighting stance.

"Nailah, hun, what is going on? How did you get here? And you're not going to fight that... thing, are you?" her mom asks, befuddled by everything that's going on.

"Mom, just go! I'll explain later, okay?"

The fur of the blob outside receded and was replaced by coal-black flesh. Slowly, the mass rose and began to take a humanoid shape. A few remaining eyes watched as all but the ones migrating to his leonine head disappeared one by one into the forming creature. His arms and legs gained definition, claws slipping out as Hazard flexed his new digits. Lastly, a third eye blossomed off-center on his beastly forehead.

The other blob remained unformed, blindly wriggling like a nightmare worm as the demonic man-cat opened the door. He stopped to give the extra piece an irritated look before picking it up and attaching it to his side where it became a malformed third arm.

"Yes. Run run run mommy and daddy," he cackled madly in a mocking voice that was at least half growl, "Round two might be... Hazardous..."

"Just go! Go!" she says as she recklessly tears away the duct tape from her dad's hands before pushing him away towards the door. When she's somewhat convinced they're actually going she spins around and grabs the next best thing she has for a weapon, the chair her dad was tied to, and puts it up between herself and Hazard.

"What do you want, you maniac?"
