"Forgive me, this will hurt...a lot."
The last words that crossed my ears as a mortal, with the body to match, and yet I almost didn't hear them. Pain tore through my entire body and I didn't know which section of the change to focus on first. I felt my bones pulled from my flesh, only to be quickly replaced by new ones. Better ones. My muscles were my own, or at least I didn't feel them change with any significance. Instead I was focused on the sudden rush as all of my blood was drained out of my pores, only to be replaced with something that resembled liquid gold. It was strange to me, even as I felt my strength slipping away, and I nearly lost consciousness, though I knew the man before me wasn't through yet. My skin flaked away, falling like the petals I'd once thrown about with the slightest thought. It was soon replaced by something harder, though it wasn't far removed from the stuff that had just left me. My eyes darkened then, only to renew themselves after a moment, my ears following suit. I could hear myself screaming now and the sound brought my senses rushing back to me, pulling me away from the darkness that I'd nearly succumbed to. My nails pulled themselves off one by one, the shock keeping me from noticing they'd been replaced carefully with something very much like diamond, pointed into sharp tips similar to ones I'd had before. I felt something tear through my back, but it faded after a moment, as if the skin had repaired before the pain could reach my brain. I felt myself start to swoon as the glamour dropped.
