Hi, I think this is the first time for me mailing to the list. My name is
Brit...and this is a short story I wrote a few days ago when one of my
friends drew a picture of me turning into an otter, enjoy!
Secret of Otter Lake
Sigh, its really beautiful up here Lucy, thanks for bringing me along.
Yeah, its ok Brit, I know you dont have the money to go anywhere else
for spring break, Lucy replied.
The two girls were on their way to Lucys family summer home built on a
small lake called Otter Lake. They had been driving through the forest for
most of the day and seeing the most lush scenery anyone could have ever
seen. You know Lucy, it feels good to get out in the wild away from
college and the city.
You can say that again, I love coming up here, the weather is always nice,
and just wait to you see the lake! Its the best! Every summer we come out
here for a week just to relax and enjoy. Of course, it would be nice if we
had a phone in there.
Britanny just smiled and put her sunglasses back down to her face and
enjoyed the rest of the ride.
When the two girls finally arrived at the little house nestled in between
huge trees and walled in on one side by the beautiful lake, they unpacked
and made the place a bit more homely. Well, Im going back in town to pick
us up some groceries Brit, is there anything you want?
No not really, just grab me some sour cream and onion chips and Ill be
Sure! Ill be back later
Brit? What are you doing in that bathing suit?
Im going out for a swim
I told you, remember
no ones allowed to swim in Otter Lake on the day or
night of a full moon, well go swimming tomorrow ok?
Lucy? What does a full moon have to do with anything? Why cant I swim?
Is a werewolf going to come out and get me or something? Brit said with a
smirk while eyeing up the straps on her new bikini.
I dont know, please Britanny, just dont. My parents have always been
very clear about not swimming on the day or night of a full moon. Promise
me you wont ok?
Britanny rolled her eyes and shrugged, Ok, ok
I wont go swimming
Lucy thanked Brit and walked out the door, got in her car and sped off down
the road for the groceries. Brit sighed, there was this beautiful little
lake, and the perfect time of year to swim and cool off, and she wasnt
being allowed to. What a gyp, she said as she lounged back on an old
An hour or so passed and Lucy hadnt come back yet, and Brit was getting
anxious. I bet if I go for a swim, by the time she gets back, she wont
even know I went for a little dip, but I cant do that to her
Still, its awfully hot, and the sun isnt going to be down for a while
could it hurt?
After a bit more convincing from herself, Britanny decided that she would
take a little dip, and so Lucy wouldnt ever know she went she removed her
bathing suit and put it in her suit case. The lake was calm and cool and
very soothing on Britannys small naked body, she was only maybe 5 feet 4
inches tall, with a small chest in comparison to many of her friends. She
relaxed in the lake for the better part of the afternoon, and decided to
explore under the lakes crystal clear water for a bit. In doing so, Brit
discovered why the lake was called Otter Lake, as it was full of river
otters that, but something caught her eyes, an otter different from the
others. Obviously a male, he seemed sort of human, maybe 4 feet tall. Upon
seeing this Britanny darted out of the water and ran into the house rather
afraid, was this why Lucy had told her not to swim in the lake?
Brit dried off, and completely forgot about what she had seen in the lake,
and dismissed it as a trick of the water. Dusk soon came, and Britanny put
on some jeanshorts, and a white T-shirt. Eventually Lucy finally got back
with the groceries and almost dropped them when she looked at Brit.
Britanny? Did you go swimming in the lake? Your hair is wet!
No, no Lucy, I just took a bath while you were gone.
Lucy looked a bit concerned, B-but Brit, the water in the bathtub doesnt
you did go swimming didnt you?
Blushing a little as she had been found out Brit replied, Oh come on Lucy,
what could it possibly hurt? I was getting hot, and I needed to cool down.
God, youre being just like my mother.
Lucy sighed a little, and realized what she was saying; it did sound kind
of stupid, after all what could happen? Oh ok, I guess youre right, Im
just being silly I guess.
Later that night...
WOW Lucy! This fish is great! Where did you get this?
Lucy just smiled and laughed a bit, Hee hee, you know Brit, Ive never
heard anyone so excited about fish sticks before.
Britanny blushed a little and continued to eat her dinner, Well, theyre
good fish sticks
After dinner the two friends lounged about the main den area of the little
summer home reading magazines, and watching some non-cable TV. Brit kept
scratching at her neck and arms though and seemed a bit uncomfortable.
Brit? Are you ok? You keep scratching
did bugs bite you or something?
No, I dont know
Im just really itchy all of a sudden
Lucy looked up at Brit and her mouth and magazine both dropped at the same
time, Brit! Y-your nose
Britanny giggled at Lucy, Aww Lucy, whyz it alwayz gotta be a black
No! No! Its really black, and kind of flat!
Britanny looking kind of confused ran to the bathroom to look in the mirror
and tripped over her feet, which were also black and webbed! She got up and
darted to the bathroom mirror and looked in it only to see that she was
getting furry, her face was changing, and her ears were rounding.
Wh-whats happening to me? Britanny screamed out as she felt her clothes
become baggy on her. She could see her hands growing black fur and becoming
webbed just like her feet and almost instantaneously a fuzzy tail shot out
from the back of her shorts. She ran out of the bathroom and Lucy screamed!
Lucy! Lucy! Help!
Britanny looked like a large otter, her neck was elongating as was her
body, but it was also shrinking. I dont know whats happening Brit
changing! IT MUST BE THE LAKE! Soon Britannys body was covered in soft
brown otter fur and her shorts puddled around her ankles when she stopped
shrinking at about 3 and a half feet. Her body felt very flexible, and Lucy
helped Brit out of her way too big clothes. Britanny had become the typical
image of a furry/morphic otter girl. She looked like a cross between an
otter and human, she still had some remnants of her breasts, and her long
human hair looked just as it did when she was bigger.
What are we going to do Lucy? Im a freak!
I dont know Brit, but I told you not to swim in the lake.
Lucy helped Britanny get into some old baby clothes they had lying around
the house. Theres nothing we can do about it tonight, but I can go in
town tomorrow and see what I can find out.
Britanny looked a little uneasy, she had an urge to go swimming in the
lake, O-ok Lucy, lets get some sleep ok?
Britanny woke up in the middle of the night in a hot sweat. She got up out
of bed and stripped off the clothes Lucy had given her and proceeded to walk
outside. The night air felt good against her new fur, and she saw a figure
standing in the water, calling out to her.
Britanny! NO! Dont go! Lucy yelled out from the house, but Britanny kept
running towards the figure, and never looked back. She became like the male
otter she had seen the day she swam in the lake, and like him became a
protector of the lake and the otter that swam there. She never forgot her
friend, or college or the city, but she was too busy loving her mate and
having children. You see otter kinfolk have no desire to go back to the
life they had before. They just bask in the sun and play all day for
eternity, for they are immortal like many mythical creatures.
