Rose heard Dante enter the trees just behind her. The burning continued in her body as her some of her ribs separated, giving her a larger rib cage, and her vertebrae followed suit. She suppressed another primal scream as the bones separated and stretched her muscles and nerves. She continued running, her ears moving higher on her head and stretching into points, and a long, velvet tail sprouted from her tail bone.
This time she couldn't suppress the catlike scream that emitted from her throat. The tail growing was the most painful for her. As she screamed, her mouth wide, her incisors grew to be longer and sharper than they were in her human form. The headache was next. She stopped and held herself up on a tree, closing her eyes in pain. Then, the pain all went away in one fell swoop as she opened her now slitted, glowing yellow eyes.
Her ear swiveling back, she turned her head to see Dante come up from behind her.
