Hello, my name is Luna Sakana. I'm six feet tall, have white hair, eyes the color of arctic glaciers, I look 28 but am actually older then that. I'm male and gay as well as a shapeshifter. I know you just did a double take so I'll give you a moment to process what you just read.............................................................................................................................
If you're ready to move on then let's continue. Which part surprised you more? the fact that I'm gay or that I'm a shapeshifter? If it's the former and that type of story isn't your cup of tea than I suggest you put this book down and read or do something else. If it's the latter and or you're alright with both, than let's move on. When you see or think of the word shapeshifter what comes to mind? Most likely it's the TV show Supernatural made by Eric Kripke, right? Well, I'm not like those on that show. I don't shed my skin in order to change my form and leave behind a pile of goop. I can change my form at will and be a near perfect copy.
If I've seen it, heard it, felt it, or tasted it I can be
that thing. My breed of shifter have been on the earth for as long as
humans have been and no, we aren't aliens or any thing like that; we
just are. Shifters tend to stay hidden, which is why we've been alive
for so long. Humans knew nothing about us till one day a shifter got
caught in a snare. The human that found him was naturally scared and
surprised but was also kind and let the shifter go.
The shifter repaid the human in kind and saved them from being swept away in a flood. The shifter and human lived together till the human passed away from old age. Because they were so close, when the human died, the shifter lost itself to it's grief and died a few hours later.
That right there is the ONLY way to kill my kind. A deep unending grief is our only downfall. Oh sure, we can "die" from the same things humans can like disease, natural disasters etc but we can bounce back from that. Let me give you an example. Let's say that I got stage four cancer, my body would to through all the pain, weight loss, and hair loss just like a human and yes it would eventually kill me and this is where I differ from humans. Once my heart stops beating, my body withers and curls up on itself, burning up and turning to ash. It's from this ash that a ball of light rises up and forms the shape of a phoenix and from that than we come back newer and healthier. Why am I telling you this? It's mostly because I don't care what you do with this info it just needed to be said. That being said. Let's get to the actual story.
