The Cursed Belly Ring Epilogue by Axel-Rosered The Cursed Belly Ring Epilogue by Axel-Rosered
"You're kidding me, right?" Shannon spoke into her cel phone. "Is this about the refund? Look, I'm sorry, I'll give you the money back! Just give me something else that can change me back to normal!"

Normal of course being her usual slender self, something Shannon had hoped the formula she took last night would have done. The shop keep had assured her the potion would cause her to lose all the weight she'd put on, and while she certainly weighed less than she had the previous night, this wasn't at all what Shannon wanted. She awoke to discover her body now even more swollen and bloated than the previous night. The only real difference was that instead of being soft and flabby, her belly and other assorted curves were all now tight and firm, inflated with some unknown gas that had her bobbing around the ceiling of her room.

"I apologize," the shop keep said on the other end. "There really isn't anything I can do at this point! Though it's not all bad news. What you're experiencing is really just a tiny side effect of the formula I gave you."

"There's nothing tiny about it!" Shanon exclaimed. "I'm even bigger than I was last night!"

"No need to shout, miss, it's just a figure of speech," the shop keep replied. "Like I said, it's a side effect of the formula you took. While I understand your frustration, I assure you, once the potion I gave you has run its full course in 48 hours the side effects will dissipate and you and your friend will both be back to normal."

"Fourty eight hours!? You mean I'm going to be stuck like this for two days!?"

"It'll be over before you know it! If you'll excuse me I have some customers to attend to. Have a nice day!"

"Wait, don't hang up! Hello? HELLO?" there was a click on the other end, and the connection closed. "Dammit!"

Shannon attempted to redial the number, but ended up dropping the phone as she clumsily fumbled with it with her puffy, swollen fingers. It landed out of her reach on her bed below with a soft plop.

"Aaaargh!" Shannon wailed. She attempted to somehow swim her way down towards the bed in order to grab the device, but sadly her body was too buoyant to have any of it. After several futile attempts she simply folded her arms as best she could and pouted. Spending two entire days like this was going to be so boring.

Definitely an awesome end to an interesting series. It would be interesting to ponder how Annette and Shannon spend their 48 hours miniaturized and buoyant, respectively.

Hah, and of course Annette gets off easy on the side effects compared to her snooty rival. This has been a grand old sequence, indeed.

EASY!?!
If I remember right.Annette is little less then 6in tall right now. If any thing I think both are the same.

Andyroid Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2013
Heh, you raise a good point there. I guess Annette only got off easy on a relative scale, in that she can still move around under her own power (unlike the bloated Shannon).
Reply
:iconoverlordofnobodies:
overlordofnobodies Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2013
True but why she can move. Think how hard it will be to reach any thing. Hunger? She better hope there some thing on the floor. Need to use the restroom? It take her hours to get there.  At lest people will see Shannon if any one comes over or hears her. Annette will be easy miss. More so if she does not get out of that bed of hers.

Yes but, relative to her size, hunger may not be a large problem... That and she could just pick a corner to piss in 0.0 if the effects are forty eight hours then she'll live

Yup, well, there's a price to pay when someone goes out of their way to undo your problems that they caused... But through the thick and thin the real moral is: Don't trust shop keepers, especially cars salesmen... XD
