My Werewolf System - chapter-167-growth-spurt
School had ended, and for once Gary didn’t need to go searching for Kai
to inform him about something, or looking for Blake. Since both of them
had told him they would contact him when they were needed.
Earlier, Marie had sent them an update in the Howlers group chat saying
she would be taking the day off school, and all of them could understand
why. Until the swelling went down, she would be harassed with all sorts
of questions, especially in a school. Perhaps they would even assume it
was her parents, so to avoid questions it was best to just pretend she
There was club practice as usual, and just like in class, his teammates,
as well as Mr Root had noticed his ‘growth spurt’. However, the
sportsman had seen radical changes in those around his age before, so
they weren’t too surprised. Instead they were proud that one of their
star players seemed to be taking the sport more seriously now by working
After club practice, while the sun was still out, Gary and Tom had
decided to head to the park that was closest to the school. It was also
one of the safer areas for that reason. It was the same one that he and
Tom had gone to before three days ago to experiment with his Full
When they finally entered the forest in the park, the two of them sat
down and started to drink some water.
“So, tell me, do you think your changing body is a Werewolf thing?”
Tom asked, seeing as no one else was around.
“That does seem to be the most likely explained.” Gary nodded, while
touching his own hard chest. “It’s hard to explain, but it feels as
if my body itself might have evolved. Like it’s grown! That’s why I
wanted to invite you out here as well. You’ve understood more about all
this Werewolf lore stuff, so I wanted to ask your opinion about it. Did
you read anything about such drastic changes?”
Tom honestly had no clue. He had never heard about a Werewolf evolving,
and why exactly had that change happened overnight? If anything, the most
likely timing for any changes should have been either the moment he
became a Werewolf or after his first turning.
The short haired teenager could only think of a few things that would
cause this ‘evolution’. An increase in strength and power, perhaps
due to fighting, or maybe something else…
Gary took off his shirt, followed by his trousers, leaving him only in
his underwear. Although he would need to get new clothes soon that fit
him, he thought it was a waste to keep ripping clothes. Besides, he still
had to go home somehow
“I wanted you to tell me what I look like, because I think that change
allowed me to control my transformation.” Gary said as he looked at his
[Skill activated Controlled Transformation]
[Transformation has begun]
Using the skill, Gary could tell that the system had split his body into
several parts. He could understand it all in his head. It was so detailed
that it was unbelievable. Gary could, if he wanted to, change just a
single finger to grow out his nail, or change the entire hand.
It was the same for all the other parts all around his body. It was as if
he had a diagram in his head and all he had to do was select the body
part that he wanted to transform. From then on, there was like a slider
of some sort, which he could move in his head as he wished.
As a test, Gary had selected his whole arm, from the elbow down to his
fingertips. He then visually moved the slider, and he could feel his arm
changing by the second. First, put the slider a quarter of the way.
“Whao, your arm!” Tom shouted in surprise. Seeing it live was
completely different from watching a recording. When Gary looked down, he
could see his fingernails had grown, and his arm was a little hairier
than usual. At the same time, it had grown slightly larger. It still
looked human but didn’t quite suit his body.
Moving the slider to the halfway mark, some skin had fallen off from his
hand, and it was just as painful as before. His arm had also grown bigger
and now his arm no longer looked completely human. It was covered in a
mix of hair and fur, but underneath it, there was still human tissue.
Finally, Gary turned the slider all the way up, and the transformation
had occurred on his arm. It was completely covered in brown fur. It hurt,
but not as much as Gary remembered.
Turning it around, both him and Tom were in amazement.
“So you can really control it, does this mean you’ll be okay on the
full moon?” Tom asked.
Gary shook his head, as he really wasn’t sure. He still received the
message this morning, so something was bound to happen. Right now, he
didn’t want to stop the testing there. Gary continued to test the other
parts of his body, and he noticed a few things.
Transforming, took up energy, similar to how his Full Transformation used
up 20 points of Energy to use it was the same when he used Controlled
Transformation on his body parts. Although this energy differed depending
on the size of the body part as well as how much he transformed each body
part. The other thing was, he could feel that his Energy was zapping away
the more parts he turned, just like the system had stated.
However, what was most impressive was his stats while doing these tests.
Changing certain parts of his body would also affect his stats. Changing
his arms mainly resulted in extra Strength. Transforming his torso and
back gave him extra Endurance, whereas his feet and legs translated to
extra Dexterity, allowing him to run faster than he could originally.
The bigger an area he turned, the more the slider was on the Werewolf
side, the bigger the increase, but also the faster the Energy consumption.
The stats for each area that was partially transformed was even better
than when he had used Charging Heart. It was clear this was a big
improvement from before. Especially with the Energy.
“Gary, do you understand what this means now?!” Tom shouted after
watching everything. “You might not have to hide this any more! If you
can partially transform like this, then you can pass yourself off as an
He could see in his friend’s eyes, he was truly happy for him. Happy
that he no longer had to hide his secret, but Gary felt like he would
still have to hide it, at least for now, and he wasn’t happy for the
same reasons as Tom. Instead, he thought these were the perfect tools to
use against Bill.
Outside Bayles High School, Slough’s only all-girls grammar school,
girls could be seen walking out in groups as it was the end of the school
day. Two girls walked out arm in arm, just like they did every day.
Stacy and Amy would usually walk to the gate before parting ways to head
home. They both had gone through a traumatic event together, yet this
event had only brought them closer together, and Stacy had solemnly
promised she would never do anything as stupid as that.
Just as they were about to leave, though, a figure in a black leather
jacket and wearing sun classes stopped in front of the two girls.
“Hey there, I just wanted to ask you a few things.” The man said, as
he pulled his glasses down, and recognised one of the girls. “You see
my brother, Hawk, has been missing for a while now, and I was wondering
if you two knew anything.”
