A new high school. A chance to make a new impression. Danneel shouldered her messenger bag and eyed Awesomedale High School. No one here knew she turned into an otter every clear night that the moon rose high in the sky. They were all going to think she was totally badass.
Because, let's face it. Danneel Harris was totally badass. She had a motorcycle permit and everything, and one time her mom let her dye her bangs pink. She was way too cool to be an otter sometimes, that's all.
But someone discovered her secret.
It was the geeky but super cute boy next door, Jensen Ackles .He looked like he should be an underwear model, or in one of the gay porn mags Danneel's brother kept stuffed under his mattress and she sometimes - well, anyway, he was HOT. But he mostly wore t-shirts that said things about Star Wars and computer programming. Sometimes she thought about him and his equally dorky stepbrother, Jared Padalecki. They would make great gay porn: she couldn't deny it.
That night, she wasn't thinking about porn at all. She was an otter, and otters don't have porn, unfortunately. But this otter had a freshwater pool and fresh fish from her mom. Danneel was pretty content. That is, until she climbed out of the pool, took off her otter skin, and noticed a movement in the bushes.
Grabbing a towel and wrapping it around herself, Danneel shouted, "Come out of there or I'll kick your ass! I mean, I'll kick your ass anyway, but I will extra kick it if you don't-"
Of course it was Jensen, her next door neighbor. "Sorry," he said. "I heard a weird noise. I didn't mean to see you..."
"Turn into an otter?" Danneel said.
"Naked," Jensen corrected her. "Wait. An otter?"
"Crap." Danneel looked down at the crumpled skin at her foot. "Can you please not tell people about that?"
"That's so cool," Jensen said, emerald eyes sparkling.
"Top secret." Danneel raised a finger to her lips and almost dropped her towel. "Okay?"
"My lips are sealed," Jensen promised. "But, damn, Danneel Harris. A wereotter? That's pretty much the most badass thing ever."
"Nah, don't think so," she said. "But thanks."
"Um, you're welcome."
"I'm going to get less naked now," Danneel told him. "But I'll see you around."
