Every drop of precious water that hit his skin sizzled, and soothed the ache in his soul. Living amongst the humans came at a price, and the privacy of his bathroom was the only time he could let his true nature show. As his tail formed, he let his head fall back, and he breathed in the precious scent of his kind. The extortionate amount he'd paid the cute market stall assistant had been worth the delivery of fresh fish.
A knock on the door interrupted his slumber.
"I forgot the last... Oh."
Now wasn't this an interesting development.
