My Werewolf System - chapter-141-a-new-state
The preparations were complete and with a few tugs it looked like Gary
“I’m not so sure about this, Gary, you broke out of my parents’
storage unit with ease. I’m worried you might be able to break out of
this one as well.” Tom shared his concerns.
“It won’t be like last time.” Gary stated confidently. “I’m not
sure how to explain it, but I feel weaker now that the full moon has
passed. I should still be able to use its power to transform me, but it
shouldn’t last too long.”
None of that was true. Gary was actually going to test out his newly
acquired Full Transformation skill. There was one thing the high schooler
had sworn to himself, and that was that he wouldn’t tell Tom anything
related to the Underdogs, which included the system. Who knew if this
system was created by them as well. In the worst case scenario, they
might kill anyone who knew even the tiniest bit about it.
Gary’s plan was to use his Charging Heart and Claw Drain skills to
lower his Energy down to around 35. Using Full Transformation cost him 20
Energy and since it took 10 Energy for every additional minute in that
transformed stage, the teenager was sure his transformation should
automatically be cancelled after thirty seconds once his Energy value
reached 10, thus reverting him back to his original form.
‘These chains don’t need to hold me for long, they just need to buy
me thirty seconds.’ Gary thought.
Tom then placed the bags of food, which were filled with raw meat, a
small distance away from where Gary was. This would be used for after the
transformation. The distance set up was based on these thirty seconds. If
he was to break out, it was possible he would reach the food, giving him
more Energy and lengthening the transformed state, which was why they
needed to be set a certain distance away. So he wouldn’t reach them in
“Are you completely sure about this, Gary?!” Tom shouted. “What if
you can’t control it? You said last time that you didn’t know what
was happening! That could easily happen again, right?”
Gary looked at Tom, he looked strange tied up, but his eyes were sincere.
“That’s what I need to find out, whether I can turn and still stay in
control.” Gary replied. “Just trust me, everything is set up so even
if I can’t remember everything or my Werewolf instincts take over,
I’ll turn back into a human before anyone gets hurt… I hope.”
Hearing this, Tom started to head in the other direction, and turned on
the recording of Gary’s phone. Then Gary waited a good ten minutes for
Tom to be far enough away.
Finally, it was time. Gary had used a Charging Heart on his walk here. He
realised that whenever the skill was used, and he wasn’t actually
fighting, a rush of adrenaline would enter his body. It was hard for him
to even walk. All he wanted to do was run, but he was holding himself
back due to Tom.
Now, with his Energy down to 35 it was time for him to act.
[Skill activated Full Transformation]
[Transformation has begun]
Gritting his teeth, Gary was bracing himself for the unbearable pain that
he still vividly remembered. Unfortunately, it hadn’t been a one-time
thing and everything was happening all over again. The strong heartbeat,
the bulging of his muscles and more.
He wasn’t sure if it hurt more or less than last time, but he was
determined to stay focused, so he could remember everything.
‘I have to keep conscious! There’s a good chance that if I pass out,
my mind gets taken over by my natural instincts… or however it works. I
need to learn to resist it.’
His skin quickly started to fall off his body, as his fur came to grow
through his hands, he wanted to claw and rip at his body, but the chains
seemed to be doing their job. As he pulled forward, they were digging
into the tree, pulling it back and forth, ripping off the bark. However,
one of the spikes that were digging into the other tree had ripped out
from the tree.
‘Stay focused!’ Gary told himself, this time feeling even his face
change, and eventually the transformation came to an end.
Gary felt like he was slightly taller than before. When he looked down,
the teenager saw a hairy pair of legs. He also saw the clawed hands,
unable to recognise any sign of his old body, yet he could tell that it
was his by the feel of the wind blowing through his ‘hair’.
‘It…it worked! I’ve transformed and I’m still conscious!’
“Rawr rawr (it worked)!” Gary tried to say it out loud, but only
growls came out from his mouth. It didn’t sound even remotely like any
human speech. The large tongue and his vocal cords were all foreign to
In front of him, his system was displaying an Energy bar, and he could
see it was going down rapidly. It was a good thing and a bad thing, he
imagined it would be a distraction, but it also served as a warning of
when he would turn back.
Still, as it was going down, Gary wanted to check one more thing, and
that was his Status. He needed to know just how much stronger he was at
[State: Werewolf (Omega)]
[Strength 18 (+5)]
[Dexterity 14 (+5)]
[Endurance 28 (+5)]
The stats displayed corresponded to his own during Charging Heart, yet
that much should have been a given. However, he also benefited from an
extra five points in all of them while in his Werewolf Form.
‘This looks to be even better than when I got strengthened by the power
of the moon. I wonder if those stack. I might actually be even stronger
when I turn on a full moon as well. Still, just because I’m still
conscious for this, doesn’t mean it will be the same on that day. The
turning back then… I don’t think this one’s the same, that day it
felt far more aggressive.’
‘And what is this Grade thing?’
While thinking about this, his time eventually ran out. The high schooler
started to transform back to his normal self. His body was shrinking and,
thankfully, there seemed to be no pain associated with his reverting to
his normal self.
Unfortunately, the sensation on his skin when he came back was a little
weird… what he hadn’t accounted for was that his clothes had
stretched to the point where they had ripped off him… leaving him
pretty naked once again…
‘Screw me, I just hope Tom comes back soon. If someone happens to pass
by and see me in the woods chained up like this, they’ll think I’m
some kind of super pervert!’ Gary would have loved to facepalm himself,
yet he was unable to reach.
Nevertheless, this was definitely a step in the right direction!
‘Now…it’s time for me to hunt you, Billy!’.
