After a month of Nai-bu staying over at my place more often than she went home to her apartment, I was starting to feel like I had control over my impulses. While she was cooking meals almost every day, meaning I was eating less jerky, I would continue to feel the desire to bite her, but I would never give in. I felt stronger than my body, and able to control what and how it felt. I could hold her, cuddle her, and even kiss her without even the slightest unintentional nibble. Even my thoughts were becoming less clouded by those lofty impulses.

At least, that’s what I thought.

Early afternoon is when she normally asked what I wanted for dinner. We had made a whole song and dance out of it. She asks what I want, I ask what she wants to make, and we go back and forth until one of us breaks. But today was different. As soon as she asked, without even thinking, I had an answer.

“I’d really like to have you for dinner,” I said, looking straight into her eyes.

She blushed. “I-I’m the one making dinner, so of course you’ll have me over. I’m already here.”

“Sorry, I don’t know why I said that.” I was genuinely confused. “What I meant to say was that I’d love to have a bite of you.”

That’s not what I wanted to say either.

Nai-bu covered her face, probably thinking I was flirting. “If you don’t take this seriously you can just order something later!”

“No, no! I mean I want to eat you!” I insisted, but that wasn’t right at all. “I want to eat you!” Again? Why am I saying that? “I want to eat you!”

Then I suddenly felt it. My body was beginning to transform. I reached for my pants fly button to make way for my tail, but I was growing faster than ever. My hands were already claws by the time I reached my waist. My body was growing so fast that my legs and chest felt like they were being compressed by my clothes. The skin pulling from my tail and snout forming could have been ripping muscles for all I knew. The pain was so terrible I closed my eyes and…roared!

As my clothing ripped apart, I began to feel some relief, at least until my head hit the ceiling. I tried to sit down, but as my legs and tail shaped around my forming scales, I couldn’t really sit like normal, and found myself having to lay on my belly. As I continued to grow, the kitchen table and living room sofa were pushed around, knocking down a lamp. I didn’t stop growing until I filled in most of the dining space and practically half of the living room.

I opened my eyes, and noticed Nai-bu was gone. Immediately, the only thought I had was to find her.

And devour her.
