I Am Damaged (Lams)
Hybrids. They were people, but they just had animal qualities and features and were made fun of and hated. They don't choose to be a hybrid, they just are. They were born one, and it was extremely rare to be one. You're parents aren't even hybrids. Every month, the visible hybrids actually turn into the animal they are mixed with, so in John's case, a cat. And when they turn into that animal, they aren't able to speak English or whatever language they speak. They only can speak the animals language.
John Laurens, was a hybrid. And he had it rough, for most hybrids didn't show a physical trait. And if they did, it was small, like maybe an unusual eye color.
But John Laurens, was one of the very few that was a hybrid and showed multiple traits. He had cat ears, tail, claws, fangs and his teeth were very sharp. He had whiskers. His eyes were a piercing yellow. His ears and tail was brown but had white tips, amd his ears were pretty long. He was very self conscious. He could talk cat, and could do most things that cats can do. He hated going out in public, because people were constantly hurting and making fun of him.
This will always be in John's POV unless I say otherwise.
