At first she was on a branch of a tree that's a few meters away from me. A moment later, she was so close, I could feel her warm breath touching my face. 

A teleporter. 

"What do you want?", I asked her. I intended to sound tough but my voice came out shaken instead. I was nervous. 

She smiled a wicked smile. A smile so wicked, I just know she's up to no good. Her right hand touched my chest and suddenly the ground disappeared. The trees around me disappeared. Everything disappeared and I was surrounded by nothing. 

She teleported me up into the air. So high into the air. 

I sort of floated for a second and then I fell. Abruptly I picked up speed. I could see the ground became closer and closer in an instant. 

THUDDD. I hit the ground hard. 

I opened my eyes and I saw red. Blood. I closed my eyes and tried to analyse the damage. I 'ordered' every living cell on my body to give me a status report. Yes, you heard me. I ordered them. That's my power. Cell manipulation. I could control every cell of my body just as easy as controlling my hand to grab something. Besides that, I could regenerate damaged tissues and mend broken bones in an instant. 

I hoped she didn't know about my special abilities and walked away. 

My left leg was twisted, my ribs were broken and one of them punctured my right lung, and both of my hands broke at several places. Tchh. Nothing that I couldn't repair. I collected the huge amount of protein from the steaks I ate earlier and repaired myself. After a couple of minutes, I was good as I was before the fall. 

I stood up. My clothes were torn and dirty. I looked around and found that I was surrounded by trees again. Then I saw her in the trees. 

"Fascinating", she said. "Lets see how you survive a fall from a higher position." 

Before I could react, her hands were already wrapping me and I felt moist. 

Rain? No. Moisture. She said higher position. Shit. She teleported me to the clouds. 

"Have fun". She let go. 

I fell again. Shit. If I survive this, I would most probably develop a fear of heights. On the bright side, I now know what it felt like to sky dive. Always wanted to try that shit. 

I did say I could manipulate my cells, right? To repair myself. Well, regeneration was not the only thing that I could do. I could also manipulate my cells to adapt to various nature and situation. In simpler words, I could grow wings. 

I made my bones hollow, like birds', to make myself lighter. I ripped my shirt off and formed a set of wings at my back. Huge white wings grew and I flapped and flapped to slow my descend. I flapped and flapped and I soared. 

An eagle. That's what I needed to be. All of my fingernails transformed into long, sharp talons. My eyes became extremely sharper. I was an eagle. Well, sort of. 

I scanned the forest from above. Trying to find her. 

She found me first. 

"Bird boy!!" she teleported above my head. She was holding a katana. "Let me fry you like chicken!" She swung the machete with the intention of decapitating me. 

But I was ready.

I transformed my tongue to be like a frog's earlier. However, at the tip of the tongue, I added a snake's fang. In split seconds, I curled myself like a pangolin and avoided the slash, spit my elongated tongue and injected her sword hand with viper venom. 

She disappeared. 

To be continued. or not. Depends. Haha... I leisurely wrote this. Just for fun.
