Hiking to the top of Mount Helicon in Ancient Greece, I am soon exhausted by the climb, and I'm sweating when I finally reach the peak. Admiring the view, I soon heard the sound of running water - a spring must be nearby!
Indeed, I soon happened upon a mountain spring, bubbling with activity. Taking off my jacket, I used it to cool myself off after my long hike up the mountain, unaware of the imminent changes about to happen to me!
However, I had never heard of this place before...I wonder why no one had ever mentioned it to me? My question was soon answered as I noticed my fingers combining to form hooves, as well as strange bulges forming on my back, starting to tear my shirt! My nose and ears also began to elongate and grow fur.
I grunted in pain as the bulges continued to grow, straining and tearing my shirt! My face quickly grew out into a snout while the bulges on my back grew into magnificent wings, completely destroying my shirt as they spread away from my quickly transforming body! I look at my destroyed shirt with a confused grunt, as my legs bulked up, tearing my pants, and a new appendage starts pushing through my butt!
Unsurprisingly, my feet were also forming into hooves, tearing through my boots and the legs of my pants. The rear appendage, now a full tail, tore through and destroyed my pants, while my new hooves tore my boots apart! I leaped in surprise, trying to minimize the destruction...but it was too late, the damage was already done.
I leaped again, this time to remove all of the scraps of what was left of my clothing from my body. Getting used to my voice, I let out a stuttering "Neigh" as the transformation completed. I let out deep breaths as I stood, four-legged, over my scraps of clothing and my backpack.
As I calmed down, I began to realize what I'd become - some sort of mythological winged horse! Shocked at first, I soon thought that perhaps this wasn't so bad - I had wings! Looking to the sky, I decided to test out my new body by going for my first flight as a Pegasus!
