A/N: Double drabble.
Thanks to his little cousin Jordy, Oz is going through some changes. It’s… confusing, and a little worrying, ‘cause a girl is dead and aside from waking up in the woods naked, he doesn’t remember a thing from last night. Did he kill her and just not remember?
If he did then the best thing he can do is make sure he can’t harm anyone else come moonrise tonight. He’ll chain himself up before he changes, lock himself in the basement… problem solved.
It’s a solid plan of action, he’s sure it would’ve worked, only Willow picks a seriously bad time to be assertive and demand an explanation for his recent odd behaviour, and Oz would really rather she not know what he’s becoming. Not that he gets any choice in the matter; the moon rises and he transforms; after that everything’s a blank until the moon sets again and he finds himself… confined, in the school library’s book cage. Naked of course.
He shrugs; it’s more or less what he’d planned even if the venue isn’t the one he would’ve chosen. With luck it means he didn’t hurt anyone while he wasn’t himself.
Could’ve been worse. He can deal.
