David Allen was an average student with decent grades, a lot of friends, and the only interesting thing about him was that his family had a ranch. On the other hand, Jason Evans was a thief, he started aged 15 when he got expelled and couldn't find a job.
Then, one Tuesday night, David was lying in his bed and heard a metallic noise, which he thought was the bars of the stable where they kept the horses, so he went to check what everything was in order. When he was on the way there, he heard one horse moving around and heard someone screaming, but it was too dark to see anything inside the stables because, ironically, there was a light bulb in the entrance. Suddenly, before he could react a horse hit him, knocking him unconscious.
When he woke up, he noticed two things: he wasn't completely laid in the floor, and there was something pulling him on the shoulder. When he looked down, he saw two... horse legs? He thought he was hallucinating, so he checked again and saw that the legs were connected to his waist! He looked back and saw a whole horse body connected to him which stopped where the horse neck should start. Surprised by that, he looked to his left and saw a head strangely close to him, unconscious. It made him scream.
Then, David heard: “W... what?”
It talked! It actually talked! David was at a loss for words. Then, the head opened his eyes and said:
“What- Who the fuck are you!?”
David tried to say something, but he felt something pulling him from the same side as the head. Then, the other person tried to punch him, which David blocked instinctively.
“What!? Why Can’t I move my other arm!? Fuck!" The other head shouted, then David felt his left leg trying to run another leg at the back trying to get up, which make them fall onto the ground.
“Wh… what did you do to me!?" The head said.
“I should ask you that question! Who are you!?” David answered'
“What do you mean, stupid!? I was trying to get a horse, then it turned crazy and hit me!”
With that, David assumed that this person was a thief who was trying to steal the horses, but it didn’t explain why he had horse legs! David became paralyzed by the confusion and tried to make sense of all.
The other person shouted: “Fuck, damn, I’m out here!”
When he said that, they fell again. David reacted, trying to get away, but he felt something pulling him, and saw that the other person was actually connected to his shoulder!
The expression on David's face made the other person look too, and he said: “What?! Why are you stuck to me!?”
With that, the other person tried to hit David again, and this time didn’t fail. In that moment, David grabbed his arm really hard and tried to get away again, but at the same time, the other person tried to run again. This caused the two to run off at an incredible speed.
The two noticed that they were running with the horse legs, and strangely, they didn’t fall like the other times.
Seconds later, they stopped running and the other person said to David (now standing in four legs and his arm still held): “Who the fuck are you!? Why am I a fuckin’ horse!? Why did you do THIS!?”
David noted that he sounded desperate, and when he started to sob, David started talking to him.
“Hey, I don’t who are you or why this happened, but all this is the LOST's fault.” He said.
“What is that fuck?” The other person said, trying to calm down.
“It’s a virus that can combine animals, people or both."
“And how the hell am I supposed to get cured?”
He then became silent, and David didn’t know what to say. Then he tried to move his left leg. He couldn’t, and it was the same for his left arm: nothing. He tried to move the other leg and it worked perfectly. He moved his “back leg” by accident, which made the other person say:
“What the heck are you doin’!? Just move!”
“But I can’t move the other leg!”
“What are ya saying!? I can move it perfectly!” He moved his “back leg” instead of the other leg, which might have made them fall if David didn’t move quickly.
“What the fuck!? Why can’t I move my right!?" The person said, angry and scared at the same time.
“I could ask you the opposite” David said, but he already knew that when people fuse, the control of the body usually splits between them all, which meant what he should have control on the right side and this other person should have it on the left, which meant that they should work together.
“I know it’s hard to understand, but it looks like we have to work together.” He said, as clearly and quickly as possible.
“I can only control the right side, and you control the left.”
“How do we do that?" The person said as he tried to move again, realising the truth in David's words. “And how are we gonna walk!?”
“I think we might have to coordinate."
“And how do we do that!?” He said, louder.
“Just follow my lead.” As David said this, he moved a leg and the other person copied him, then they did the same with their back legs. After a while, they noticed they were actually walking like a horse would, and they were kind of enjoying it, but we're still confused by their synchronization.
David looked again to the other person and saw that his worried face was gone. He took advantage of that, trusting that he had finally calmed down, and said:
“Hey! Let’s get into the house so we can see what we look like!”
When David said this, they turned with a strange ease and got to the back door quickly. When they were about to enter, the other person said:
“Whose house is this?”
“Woah, who else is inside?”
“Nobody, my parents went on a business trip and won’t come home until Friday, so there’s no danger."
“I guess I’m lucky."
“Are you ready to enter?”
When they were passing through the door, they found it a bit difficult because they were taller than they remembered and they had to worry about a big horse butt.
When they were passing the kitchen, the other person said:
“What a cool house you have.”
“It’s pretty normal." David said surprised by his sudden calmness. “What's yours like?”
“Quite shitty, it’s all wet and cold.”
As they walked, the two noticed a big mirror supported by the wall, so David said:
“Do you want to see what we look like?”
“It won’t do any harm.”
When they came closer to the mirror, they saw their new body: the first thing what they saw were their heads, which were next to each other, then David saw that he gained muscles in the arms and his… or their torso was somewhat muscular, but for the other person, it was perfectly normal. They also had a good look at the big brown horse legs which started where their waist ended.
“Huh, this is actually really awesome." David said with wonder.
“Yeah, this isn’t so bad."
“It could be much worse.”
David said with a serious look: “The horse could have gained whole control over the body.”
The other person became mute with shock.
“Relax, let’s just go to my bedroom.”
They stooped again to go through the door, and the other person was surprised as he saw the huge bed in the David’s room. Meanwhile, David had a look at the clock on his bedside and decided it was time to sleep, and his bodymate agreed.
When they managed to get on the bed, David asked:
“Hey, I’m about to sleep with a complete stranger, and I don’t know your name...?”
“Jason Evans, but I guess that doesn’t matter now."
Tomorrow would be a weird day...
