Saffron couldn't help but hum a little to herself as she worked on mixing together a new set of ingredients in an open flask. It was mundane work, but having to mix a potion when you're smaller than most of the containers for ingredients gave her a new appreciation for the task now that she was once again her proper height.
Or maybe it was the fact she was no longer the size of a doll that had Saffron in such a good mood. The continuous struggles and suffering she went through earlier that day seemed like a distant memory now that she could easily pick up the various bottles and jars on the table instead of having to painstakingly push and drag them about. It was amazing how much she'd taken for granted in the past. Even the ability to stand above a table top seemed like something to be treasured at the moment.
"My, aren't we pleased with ourselves," came a surly voice from behind. It was Regina, who was beginning to find Saffron's cheerful demeanor rather grating at this point. "If it so pleases you, perhaps you'd like to spend less time composing little ditties in that head of yours and actually finishing that antidote for me?"
Saffron turned to look at her mentor, whose bloated form loomed behind her. The potion she'd been tricked into drinking had certainly done a number on Regina's figure, causing both her belly and breasts to swell out to mammoth proportions until they pinned her to the spot. She now perched precariously atop her swollen abdomen, helpless to do little more than shoot Saffron an icy glare. Usually this was enough to intimidate the apprentice witch into falling in line, but now, with Regina in such a helpless position, it registered as nothing more than pouting.
"Don't worry," Saffron answered as sweetly as possible. "I'm just making extra sure I mix it correctly!"
Regina sighed and pouted even harder. "Very well, just hurry it up will you? I have an itch near my bellybutton and it's driving me insane."
Saffron merely nodded and returned to her work, still just as pleased as ever, and all Regina could do about it now was sigh heavily. Being as hugely bloated and immobile as this, there was little she could do about it. The potion had been fast acting, causing Regina's abdomen to swell and distend and expand to a debilitating size within moments, and Saffron wasted no time in twisting the screws. She agreed to mix Regina the remedy for the potion she'd drank if and only if Regina agreed to return her to normal AND if she agreed to forgo any and all punishment for the day's events. Realizing that in mere moments she'd be unable to move at all, Regina was forced to accept. As insurance she only partially deflated Saffron, leaving her apprentice with a bulgy middle, just in case she tried anything funny, though that barely seemed to phase Saffron at all. So she simply sat there, enormous and helpless, fuming. Worst of all Regina didn't even have the satisfaction of being able to punish Saffron afterwards for the deceit. Saffron even went as far as to force her to swear on the witches' oath not to! Despite herself, Regina couldn't help but crack a small smile. Despite being a clumsy ditz at times, the fact Saffron had managed to pull this off to save her butt was rather impressive. Deep down inside, Regina couldn't help but feel a tiny bit of pride in her apprentice right now.
"All right Saffron," Regina thought to herself. "I guess you win this time." Her smile widened slightly.
There'd be other opportunities for payback.
