Me And The Minotaur: Tyler's first story

In this oddly disturbing early work, circa 1986, the young narrator is turned into a minotaur by an evil warlock!  A fantastic journey, trials and ordeals, magical happenings, and - finally - a return home.  Some might say that the author of The Drive hasn't actually developed his content much since then - he's just learned better grammar...

One day last spring a evil warlock turned me into a Minotaur.  I can't become a child again unless I ate somebody or something but it had to be living. I thought that wouldn't be to hard, as long as I have the Minoutors tastebuds! The problem with being a Minoutor is - how would I go to school, how would I show my face, somebody would shoot me, and most of all how would I explain it to my parents? Oh boy, this isn't going to be as easy as I thought. Just then the warlock went up in a cloud of smoke and was gone. I didn't want to eat a person so I started off to the nearest forest. I ate a car on the way. I finally got to the forest, I didn't know which one, but who cares as long as its got animals in it? I was just walking around when I came upon a junk pile, it had all sorts of junk in it, but one thing interesed me, it looked like a whole bunch of clocks mashed together. I got in, pushed a few buttons, and suddenly it started to shake, it blasted off I was in outerspace! The whatever you call it went flying around the world at about the speed of light! Finally I landed, and walked along way and came upon a town, but it looked like one from the 800's! I went in, oops big mistake right when I put one foot in the town, everybody through nets on me!  I tore at them but even with my teeth and claws it was no use. They put me in a big maze but They didn't know I could think like a human do things like a human, I new where I was. I was in a labrinth. They put their enemies in it and I'm sopposed to eat them.  I waited over night, and in the Morning sure enough about seven were put into the maze. Well I said To myself now or never I ate one of the people, and turned back into a child. Now the problem was getting out of hear, we climed the side of the maze and walked on the top along way, and we finally got to the beginig, we made a brake for it only a couple of nets were thrown and they mist. I madeit back to the whatever you call it Took off it went around the world at the speed of light exsept this time the other way. it stoped I was back in the forests, and home.
