S5 ep10 Season Finale
The Roller coaster

My legs are hanging. I use my free hands to hold and squeeze down on his talons as hard as I can. Ive never been on a roller coaster before in my life. But I have seen people ride them on television several times.
This is similar to a roller coaster with the metal restrains over your shoulders, but your feet are left out to dangle.
I gaze above me and see the pink sky, and these large brown wings gliding in the wind. Suddenly, a giant white face with a yellow beak looks down into my eyes, winks, and then shifts forward again. I turn and look below me to see my reflection in a lake. The water is so crisp and clean that I can see a school of fish swimming smoothly through it. He lowers me closer to the water.
The tips of my shoes caress the surface of the water gently. Then I witness the fish behavior changing.
Fish of various sizes and colors begin to jump from the water while they follow me. The beauty of it all… its hard to put in literal words. Ive never witnessed something so cool. I shoot skyward abruptly, and then I feel my body shift hard right.
I turn 180 and float smoothly towards ground.
The great bird flaps its wings, which keeps us level in mid-air. He opens his talons and I fall onto my feet, and then I quickly catch my balance. I turn to this giant eagle flapping his wings to keep himself hovering.
He finally lands gently onto the ground. The wind from his wings makes me stagger backwards and collapse onto the side of a fallen tree. I grab my chest to make sure my heart is still beating. Athena and Courage approaches me.
"How did you enjoy your first roller coaster?" Athena asks.
I dont respond. I just conceal my face with my hands, trying to hold back this crying laugh.
"Did you like it or what?" Courage presses on eagerly.
I spaced my fingers so I can see them.
"Please, dont do that again." I muffled through my hands.
"You didnt like it?" Aero, the giant eagle, asks with his bold voice.
I throw my hands down onto my lap.
"No. I mean...yes..." I have a short recess to put my words together. "That was the most fun, life
threatening thing, Ive ever done."
I take another deep breath and release extra slowly.
"I think I just had a heart attack." I say while laughing.
"Adrenaline, this is Iva, Iva adrenaline." Aero says.
He shifts left and right.
"Wheres Raven?" Aero asks Courage and Athena.
A giant dark purple bird with a long beak swoops down and lands perfectly on the ground.
"Howd she like it?" Raven asks.
"Iva and adrenaline has a love, hate, relationship." Aero responds. “Its complicated.”
Aero turns to me.
"Hey want to see something cool? Check this out."
Suddenly Aero burst hard into the air. His wings create a strong gust of wind that almost blows me back.
I look up into the air and notice hes already a small spec in the sky. I then see him descending towards the ground hastily until he shoots down pass the cliff and disappear. I wait to see him shoot back up.
I stand to my feet and wait for him to appear but it doesnt happen.
"Guys, shouldnt he have come up already?" I ask them, but my concern ceases when I see him heading towards the sky again.
This time hes spinning wildly as he climbs towards the atmosphere.
"Iva, please dont pay him any attention." Raven says.
"The more you feed into it, the worst it gets. He has attention issues." Athena states.
"It gets annoying sometimes." Courage adds.
He swoops back to us without blowing to much wind everywhere.
"Cool, right?" Aero asks me as he lands.
"How fucking lame was that." Raven blurts out blankly.
He shifts towards his sister.
"Shut up." He says before brushing her face with his wing then taking off into the horizon.
"You better fly away." Raven says as she takes off after him.
“Here they go again.” Athena says as she sits on the ground next to me.
"Wheres Mane?" I ask.
Athena lifts her chin to her far left.
"Over there." She says.
I look over and see Mane sitting by himself, staring at the sunset.
"Dont worry about him." Courage says while flattening onto the dirt. "Hell come over when hes fit and ready."
We watched on as Raven and Aero play tag until the sky turn inky blue. They finally called a truce when the moon reached its peak. Tonights moon seems a lot more vivid than usual. Maybe its because my view is so clear. As Aero and Raven dances around the fullmoon, I cant help but think about my mom and her safety.
Suddenly I feel a warm rub against my leg. I look down at Courage, who is looking back at me.
"Whats bothering you?" He asks.
I stare back at the moon.
"My mom." I reply, watching Raven and Aero spinning upward together.
"Dont worry about her.” He says. “I have parents too, remember. I always assure myself that theyre fine."
"How can you?"
"You just have to be very cautious and everything else will fall into place." He explains.
"I understand you completely Iva.” Athena joins in the conversation. “I know a lot about fear. It can drive you crazy. It can ruin your social life, give you strange thoughts..." She suddenly pauses and lowers her voice. "...it can keep you up at night." She pauses again.
"Its a disease. Dont let it get inside your head because when it goes in, its hard to get out."
A brief silence falls over the three of us. Athena stands and walks away. She falls down flat on the
ground with her face turned away.
"Shes fine. Sometimes she gets paranoid, thats all." Courage says in a quiet tone.
I look over to see Mane approaching us sluggishly.
"You finally decide to come over." Courage says to him.
Mane doesnt respond immediately. He flops onto the ground in front of me, scattering dirt into the air.
"Its getting late.” Mane says. "I might head back soon."

S5 ep09
The experience II

He looks over at me and then winks.
"Its your turn Athena." Courage says in a deep voice.
After a deep inhale her bones begin to shift like Jasons. Suddenly her muscles begin to bulge. Her skin rips open revealing yellow fur underneath. She falls forward as her clothes and skin burst all over the forest floor. Suddenly, a large cheetah falls gently onto the ground.
I turn to face Daniel. His transformation seems a lot less stressful than Marias and Jasons. He takes in a deep breath and maintains it. I see his big shoulders expanding even more. Suddenly his outer layers rip apart and a muscular black lion falls onto the ground with a thump. He shakes off some remaining skin from his back.
"Its pretty cool huh?" Athena asks in her deep feminine voice.
I open my mouth but no words seem to come out at first.
“I will never get used to seeing that.” I reply in astonishment.
“The surprise is still to come.” Courage says to me as we begin to follow behind Mane.
Together we continue up the trail. Courage and I stay in the back of the group.
"Is Eric and Jessica, going to transform too...?" I look down into the tigers yellow eyes and ask.
"Yeah they will, soon enough." He replies.
I look up at the sky as it begins to turn pinkish purple. The trail gradually starts to incline as we hike more and more. I almost trip over a root sticking from the ground but I catch my balance.
"Are you okay?" Courage asks, slightly amused by my tired stumbling.
"Yeah, Im fine."
Courage manoeuvres his giant frame closer to me.
"Hop on me." He says.
"Are you for real?"
"Itll be fun."
He stops and I lift my leg over his back with some difficulty. After climbing onto his back he begins to walk again.
"Ever rode a tiger before?" He asks.
"All of the time." I say sarcastically.
A minute later everyone stops at a vast clearing.
This clearing is wide with no trees, just a beautiful view of the colorful sunset.
"Were here." Courage says then stops.
I slide off of his back to look at the sun peeking at me. “Whoa, this is absolutely beautiful.” I say to him.
Eric and Jessica finally take off their shoes and stuff them into a backpack. Eric walks over to me barefooted with a huge grin. He lifts me off of my feet and cradles me like a giant infant.
"What are you doing?" I ask.
"Go with him Iva, itll be fine." Jessica says.
Suddenly Eric begins walking through the clearing.
"Where are you taking me?"
Eric looks down at me and says...
"Youll see in a second. Just trust me, youll thank me later."
"Okay." I reply weakly.
I look over at the sunset again, this time I gasp. I see these treetops in the horizon. He is walking me towards a cliff. My brain switches to panic mode instantly.
“Fasten your seatbelt, farm girl.” Eric says while laughing.
"What are...?" Before I finish he runs into a sprint and leaps of the cliff with me in his arms.
Suddenly I feel myself falling at an incredible speed. The adrenaline is expanding massively in my stomach. I let out a scream halfway down, but I can only feel it vibrating in my throat. The loud wind whistling at my ears makes me temporarily deaf. And suddenly before I impact into the ground I feel my body lift upward.
I incline higher and higher until I swoosh over the trees. My throat is burning from me screaming at the top of my lungs. We continue to incline higher and higher until we pause in the sky slightly. In this moment I can finally hear myself screaming like a crazy person. I feel my lungs slam against my back as I shoot towards the ground again.
The ground is approaching me rapidly. I close my eyes tightly while the wind blows hard against my face. Every inch of my body is over dosing on adrenaline as I plummet to the ground at a chaotic speed. I feel my body lift again but only slightly. Then, just like that, the wind is no longer blowing hard in my face, yet its now a gentle breeze flowing smoothly through my hair.
Eventually I stop screaming like a maniac and sluggishly open my eyelids. My tense body loosens but only partially. Its as if Im driving an invisible car in midair. I can see trees pass me. In front of me I can see the subtle sunlight and all of the glorious colors surrounding it. I realize that Erics arms are no longer holding me, yet these yellowish talons are holding me by my upper body and shoulders.

S5 ep08
The experience.

Hes dressed in a pair of gray sweat pants, a dingy white shirt, and an old pair of white tennis shoes.
He is also wearing a book bag over his shoulders. I stand to my feet and giggle at his appearance.
"What are you wearing?"
He looks down at himself and laughs too.
"Clothes I dont need anymore." He replies with his words mix into his laughter. "I look horrible?"
"No but your pushing it." I reply. "So, Im guessing you guys will transform tonight, right?”
“Yup.” He replies.
Suddenly, I hear more approaching footsteps.
Eric and Jessica walks into the living room, pushing each other on the way down. Theyre also dressed in raggedy outfits with book bags.
"Dude, what the hell are you wearing?" Jason asks Eric with broad eyes.
Eric looks down at his small pink shirt, which shows off his flat abs. But the black tights are too much to handle. I cant help but laugh at him.
"I didnt have anything else. I have to use Jessicas stuff." Eric replies shamefully.
He looks over at his sister who is snorting.
"What are you laughing at stupid? Its your clothes."
Maria comes down the steps next.
"Ay Iva, here..." Maria says while she tosses me a black hooded coat. "...it might get chilly tonight."
"What about you?" I ask her.
"Uh, fur...duh." She replies.
I pull the coat over my head and slip my arms in the sleeves. Luckily for me its just my size.
Maria spots Eric and his womanish appearance.
“What are you…?” She says straight-faced. “…Ill just leave it alone.”
“Im wearing clothes.” Eric says humourlessly.
Maria presses her lips together tightly and shakes her face.
"Everyones here but Mane.” Jason states.
"I swear hes worse than a female sometimes." Eric says.
Jessica snickers and replies...
"Youre to talk, Erica."
Everyone laughs including me.
"Why do you have to be such a drag?" Eric asks Jessica.
"Why do you have to dress up like one?" She counters.
“Oh, dammnn.” Jason and Maria mutters.
We laugh at Eric as he stands there flat faced.
“Im sorry bro.” Jason says while approaching
“Eric, let me get that for you.”
Jason kneels down and pretends to pick something off the floor. He presents the invisible object to Eric.
“What are you doing?” Eric asks.
“Heres your face back.” Jason replies.
Eric pushes Jasons hands away.
“Ha-ha.” Eric says tonelessly.
“Couldnt help myself bro.” Jason states while giggling.
“Whatever.” Eric fires back humorlessly.
Suddenly I hear those famous heavy feet coming downstairs. Daniel walks into the living room and scans everyone, but his eyes stop on Eric. Daniel acts as if he didnt see Eric standing there. He turns away, marches through the kitchen, and proceeds out of the back door.
We follow his trail off the back porch and into the woods. Daniel walks in the lead, Eric, Jessica, and Maria are in the middle. Jason and I are following behind them all.
"So, when will I transform?" I ask Jason.
"With us it happens around puberty. But youll know when its time. Before we transform, we have what we call, a spiritual encounter. The animal would visit you in a dream, or sometimes, call out to you. Have you noticed anything like that?"
"No not at all."
“No voices or anything?” He presses on.
“Nope. I would remember if something like that happened to me.” I reply.
"Well, it wont be long hopefully. My animal spirit called out to me when I was sleeping."
"And after it visits you, whats next?"
Jason breathes out slowly with wide eyes. Its almost like hes thinking about something traumatizing.
"Then you get these muscle pains. That means your body is preparing itself for the awakening. The awakening is another word for transformation."
"Is it painful?"
"Its extremely painful, but thats only the first time.” He says with a twisted face. “I wanted to die when it happened to me.”
“Seriously?”
“Im dead serious.” He replies. “Your muscles are expanding and tearing. Its like being boiled constantly. Thats the best way to describe the pain.”
I exhale.
“After that its just a matter of time before your human soul binds with your animal soul." He informs me.
“So, will I be stronger than Mane?”
He laughs again.
“Yes…” His laugh fades away and a serious expression forms. “…Manes strength wont match yours. Youre frail now Iva, but when you awake…” He breaks to huff and puff. “…its a whole different story. I can only wish Ill be there to see it happen.”
Suddenly I see a hint of gloominess covering his face.
“Soon more wolves will be in town. What happened to Noale is just the beginning Iva. We must be ready for whats coming next.”
“So what other abilities do you have?”
“Besides transforming into an animal, we all have a distinct skill. Mane is strong. Athena is superfast. Im sort of in between, well, balanced. Plus all felines are fast healers. And Raven and Aero can see things in slow motion. Its a focusing ability. Thats the best way to describe their gift.”
“Wow, thats cool.”
“Yeah it is.” Jason agrees.
Suddenly Daniel stops in a small clearing.
"Okay, we are far enough from the road." Daniel states to everyone.
Jason, Daniel, and Maria kicks off their shoes and stuff them inside their backpack.
"Who's going first?" Maria asks barefooted.
"I am." Jason says.
He breathes in deeply while shaking his hands and wobbling his legs as if hes warming up for a track run. He stops and looks over at me.
"Iva, you should step back."
I step back with my eyes locked on him. He takes in a deep breath and holds it. I witness his body starting to tremble. I see a vein in the middle of his head coming into view. Suddenly I hear a nasty cracking sound.
I realize that his right forearm has snapped into two places, his left forearm follows. I gasp loudly but quickly cover my mouth. Then I hear another crack. I see his ribcage expanding. Then multiple cracks later, his face starts to turn beastly. Now his skin and clothes are beginning to tear open. I see orange fur underneath his flesh.
He yells out in pain, and then his yell converts into a roar all of a sudden. He falls onto the ground on all four paws. Just like that, Jason is gone, and a huge tiger is standing where he was.
