Adventure / Fantasy

Act 01: The Startling Transformation

Sarah Emily Lockhart got up just like any other morning. She was your average girl and she loved living life to the fullest.What she didn't know that everything she had known would change for her.

"Sarah," Sarah's mother called from the bottom of the stairway.

"Yes, mother?" Sarah questioned.

"Are you up and ready for school?" Sarah's mother asked.

"Yes, nearly. I'll be down in a moment." Sarah replied to her mother.

Now Sarah was a very pretty girl. Long flowing hair that was auburn, her eyes which were blue, she stood five feet six inches tall, weighed 159 pounds, she was sixteen years old, also she had a petite figure. Sarah then ran downstairs.

"Oh, there you are!" Sarah's mother announced joyfully. Her name was Joyce.

"Yeah. I am ready for school." Sarah replied. Sarah was in the tenth grade.

"Here's your lunch money. Be careful at school." Joyce told her.
"I will!" Sarah answered her mother and ran out the door.

Once at school, two of her best friends; one was Julie and the other Anne. Julie had long blond hair, stood five feet nine inches tall, weighed 153 pounds, she was the same age as Sarah, she was a medium figure. Now Anne had short shoulder length hair, she stood five feet two inches tall, weighed 157 pounds, she was the same age as the other two, she had a petite figure. Both Julie and Anne had brown eyes.

"Did you know that the dance is tonight?" Anne asked Sarah.

"Yeah. Margot told me yesterday. I have a date too. Jack."Sarah replied cheerfully.

"JACK!" Julie and Anne asked excitedly.

"Yeah," Sarah started out, "Isn't it cool?"

"Yeah, I guess. He normally doesn't date. You're lucky!"Anne commented

"Jack Colson is the son of a wealthy businessman. I wonder why he would take interest in you?" Julie pondered.

"Maybe." Sarah answered with her mind on something else. Her friends noticed her spacing out. They were concerned.

"Are you okay Sarah?" Julie asked.

"It looks like you are thinking about something." Anne stated.

"Oh," Sarah started, "it's nothing."

Then the bell rang.

"We're are going to be late for class." Anne told Julie and Sarah as she led them away from the school yard to their class-Room nearby.

That afternoon, Sarah was back at home again. Sarah handed Her report card to her mother, it had the following on it:

1: History A+ 2: Math A+ 3: Science A+ 4: P.E./Health A+ 5: English A+6: Art A+ 7: Biology A+

Her mother Joyce was very pleased.

"You did very well. I am proud of you!" Joyce told her by giving her a hug.

"Thanks mom!" Sarah replied happily.

"Dinner will be ready in a bit." Joyce told her.

"Ok, I am going to take a shower." Sarah told her and went up stairs and took off her clothes and got in the shower.

Once in the shower, she thought about her life so far and how she was very secure and peaceful with her surroundings, but something was missing. While she was thinking about that, her body began to change like it never had changed before. Her hair turned silver. Her eyes changed to match her hair. She grew more beautiful than before. Her ears became pointed.Her face sparkled. Then she got out of the shower and dried off and looked in the mirror.

"What happened to me?" Sarah talked to herself, "am I an elf?"

Which was her first question. However, soon after she looked At herself in the mirror, she returned to her normal figure. She decided not to tell anyone, until she knew what was happening to her body.

"DINNER!" Joyce announced.

Michael, Joyce's husband and the father to Joyce walked in the Door.

"I'm home!" Michael announced.

"DAD!" Sarah announced and gave him a big hug.

"How's my girl?" Michael asked her.

"Good," She answered him, "I got all A's again on my report card!"

"Good for you!" Michael praised her.

"Dinner's ready." Joyce announced.

"Good. I'm starved!" Michael replied.

"Me too!" Sarah replied too.

For dinner they had mashed potatoes and gravy, fried chicken, corn on the cob, green beans, iced tea, and for desert they had chocolate ice-cream with butterscotch syrup on top. Then Joyce had Sarah'sdress ready for the dance. Her dress was pink with lace on theedges that were white. Her dress was made of the finest silk available. Sarah tried on her new dress and then showed it to her mother.

"Oh!" Joyce shouted for joy, "It looks great on you."

"Thanks mother." Sarah thanked her mother in low tone. Her mother knew something wasn't right.

"What's wrong dear?" Joyce looked worried.

"Nut... nothing mother..." Sarah replied in an even slower and lower tone.

"Okay, want to talk to me, I'm here for you." Joyce told her.

"Thanks!" Sarah thanked her mother and then giving her a hug.

Soon there was a knock at the door. Joyce answered the door.

"Oh! Hello Jack. How are you?" Joyce asked him.

"Good. Mrs. Lockhart and you?" Jack answered her question cheerfully.

"Very good thank you." Joyce replied, "are you taking Sarah to the dance?" Joyce questioned him in a happy manner.

"Yes." He answered simply.

"Good. You two have a good time. Take good care of her." She urged him.

"I will." Jack promised her.

"Good." Joyce answered looking very happy.

"Bye mom!" Sarah answered wearing her dress for the dance.
Jack escorted Sarah out of her home into his car and to the dance at the Billings High School. Once there, Jack got out of his car went to the other side and opened the door for Sarah and she got out of his car. Jack extended his arm and motioned for her to put her arm around his. She noticed whatHe wanted her to do and she put her arm around his. He escorted her inside the school gymnasium where the dance was held for that evening. Sarah was happy that night. Her only hope that whatever happened to her earlier in the day, wouldn't happen tonight.

For the first hour, the lights were on. The local radio station Disk Jockey played hit rock and roll songs from 1950's, 1960's,and the 1970's. Sarah and Jack were satisfied with the music that was being played. Sarah liked Easy Listening, while Jack was a country music fan. The D.J. also played many country music oldiesby the popular and famous artists like: Earnest Tubb, Loretta Lynn,Johnny Cash, The Statler Brothers, The Oak Ridge Boys, Randy Travis,Ronnie Milsap, Ricky Skaggs, Hank Williams Senior, Hank Williams Junior, Tex Ritter, Dolly Parton, Faron Young, Marty Robbins, andKenny Rogers. Now Sarah thought country music was okay, she liked Lionel Ritchie, The Pointer Sisters, and many more like them. She had no preferences, however she liked Lionel Ritchie best. She loved Love songs. When the love songs played, they danced slowly and enjoyed every minute of it!

After awhile, the D.J. announced that they were going to turn out the lights. Sarah didn't mind. There was three large shining shimmering silver balls that sparkled in the dark gym, the silver balls were having an unknown effect on her. She felt like she was going to transform just like earlier in the day when she took a shower. She ran out of the gum into the hallway and sat on a bench and placed her head in her hands and cried. Jack, her boyfriend and her datewas very concerned about her. He noticed that she was in her elf form, but didn't know what or why that form was. He knew it was Sarah. He didn't care what she looked like. He loved her for whom she was. He thought she was beautiful. He tried to reassure her.

"Sarah." He talked to her slowly and in a calm voice.

"Go away," she called out in voice that was drowned out by her tears, "I am ugly! What have I become?"

She had no answers, however Jack consoled and encouraged her.

"Sarah. Look at me." Jack told her. She looked at him. He began to speak to her, "I think you are very beautiful in that form, if you call that you are in right now; a form, you are very special. In time you will know why this is happening to you. Let me dry your tears."

His calm voice eased her fears and worries. This strengthened her. He held her hand and she stood up. Sarah transformed back to her normal human form. By this time, the lights were on again and Sarah was fine. Jack escorted her back inside the gym. After the dance was over. He took her home. This wound be a night that she would never forget.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...
