After all the ruckus died down, she went to the doctor.

Wheeled her way down the hall to his office.

"You appear to be some kind of lizard, low degree."

Tests, no normshifting Power, more tests, no powers.

Weeks went by. She noticed that her stump socks were all too small.

"Remarkable. You seem to have a lizard's ability to regrow lost limbs. At this rate, your legs should be fully restored in six months to a year."

Of course she would have to keep off them while they grew back, but that was okay.

She stretched out on the beach, her dark blue bikini complementing the light green of her chest and stomach, the dark green of her head, her bright orange hair.

Absentmindedly, she reached down and scratched the bottom of her itchy left stump. Since the accident, that awful prom night, she had been incomplete. One right above the knee, one halfway up the thigh.

And now, all she had to do was wait.

She smiled and closed her eyes.
