"Where are the answers? "
"Well, that depends on the questions" Was the reply.
So began his journey int the world of shape shifting. To be honest it mostly illusion But the end result was the same. People will see pretty much what they want to see. In most cases its very easy to get them to see what you want them to see. As I said; illusion. But as with almost every tale like this, there is a grain of truth supporting it. However, unbelievable the idea may be.
He wanted to know many things. It was my job to get him to ask the right questions. As for him, he wouldn't know if I was telling the truth or not. Truth be told; I'm not above telling a lie if I have to. However, I generally try to avoid it. I'm also not shyabout stretching the truth if needed.
But I digress. Back to his questions, and my answers, and shape shifting. I hold a very unique place in our world. I am a master shape shifter. I can become pretty much whatever I want, whenever I want. Yes there are other shape shifters in our world, But they have very limited power compared to mine.
In a world filled beings that can change shape almost anytime they want, it is very unusual to find one cannot shift their shape at all. To be perfectly blunt, he's a freak of nature, in our world. He had sought me out to answer his questions. Which I will try to as best as I can. I know there are many other worlds where we would be the freaks of nature, not him. There are beings here that have a variety of other talents, shape shifting being the least of them. I need to find out if he has other talents he's not discoverer yet.
And so the interview went. I sat and talked, he mostly listen. I explained to him, that although he couldn't shape shift, he looked just like the rest of us. Which was a huge blessing. He didn't exactly embrace the idea. But I think he got it. I explained to him it was not the handicap he saw it as. In fact it could work to his advantage. The fact that he couldn't shape shift, would me he was less of a security risk. In the end if could mean he was able to do high security jobs one of us couldn't do, and the like. He slowly came around to the idea. However, I could tell, he wasn't convinced. I needed to help him find another talent no one had.
Suddenly he wasn't there. He just faded into the sun behind him. I got up and looked around. he was no where to be found. I turned around. Just as suddenly as he'd disappeared, he slowly reappeared where he was sitting, The look on his face was priceless. The look of shock as he realized what he had just done. Over the next few minutes he faded out and back in several times. It looks like he found his usual talent,
Who needs shape shifting when you can turn invisible.
