Five Sentence Fiction Friday - Candidate

Welcome one and all to the first Friday of November. To all my fellow writer friends competing in NaNoWriMo, godspeed! And stop reading this blog and get back to writing! For the rest of you, welcome. Please, stay awhile. I hope you all enjoy this week's edition of Five Sentence Fiction. If you'd like to learn more about it, or give it a try, visit Lillie McFerrin Writes. Now, let's get to it! This week's prompt was candidate. Are you intrigued? Enjoy!

I suppose I should have felt lucky. I was chosen out of a thousand promising candidates to be a part of this experiment. But all I felt was pain... pain and the weirdest tingling all over my skin.
"What's happening to me?" I shouted, but no one could hear me through the thick, protective glass. 
Doubled over in agony, I could feel the change taking place. The doctor was right, I was becoming something completely different.

Ah, nothing like fiction to soothe the soul, am I right? Hopefully you enjoyed that, and if you did, I hope you'll follow this blog and/or come find me on twitter @MelanieKCole. Still hankering for some Five Sentence Fiction? Just check out the links below and read past editions. Have a great weekend!
