Belly Brigade Special #5
One Missed Period
Starring: The Belly Back-up Brigade
Karee Michaels is working late at her part-time job at the
local pharmacy stocking the home pregnancy tests. The very plain looking high
school sophomore is placing the last box when the light fixture above snaps
loose and crashes down. Karee is showered in sparks and chemicals as the
display shelves are crushed. The young girl is drenched in the test fluids and
receives a mild shock when the power cable swings through the puddle she is
The on-duty pharmacist runs over to check on the girl. “Are
you okay Karee, what happened?” “I’m fine, very wet and blue but okay. The
light fell and hit the shelf.” The pharmacist tells Karee to go in back to
clean up and rest while he took care of the mess. Karee feels a little
lightheaded and takes a seat after changing out of her wet top. “Are you sure
you weren’t hurt?” “Yes Sam, I’m good, just a little rattled.” “Okay, head home
when you feel up to it.” “Thanks Sam.” Karee heads home when her head clears.
The next day Karee gets up and dresses for school. The girl
has trouble for some reason finding something that fits. “Why are none of my
bras fitting, they all seem tight,” says the girl to herself. She finally
settles on a spandex sports bra that had enough stretch to be comfortable. Next
came her pants. “I need to go on a diet or start working out, this is
ridiculous.” Karee locates a skirt that has an elastic waist that fits over her
Through the morning Karee suffers from a queasy stomach and
bouts of lightheadedness. At one point she feels fuzzy, stumbles and grabs the
arm of the head cheerleader Bethany. A strange tingle passes between them. “Eew,
get off me freak!” “Sorry,” mumbles Karee. In between classes Karee enters the
washroom and sits on one of the toilets resting her head on the cool metal
divider. The girl hears moaning as someone shambles into the neighboring stall.
Karee hears someone retching and emptying the contents of their stomach orally.
Karee sees Bethany shuffle over to the sink and splash water
on her face. Bethany leans over the sink and suddenly feels the cool porcelain
against her belly. Her cheer uniform feels awfully tight to Bethany. “Oh God!”
Bethany straightens up and looks down at herself and sees a big round belly
poking out from her top. “Oh this is not built for these,” cries Bethany
as she massages her growing chest. Karee is shocked at the scene before her.
Karee wonders if she was affected by her accident and might
have caused what happened to Bethany. Karee runs an experiment and deliberately
seeks out a girl that has bullied her and stumbles into her. Karee feels the
same tingle as the bully shoves her away into a locker. Karee then meets a
fellow honor student and runs her hand along the girl’s arm and felt the
familiar tingle. She also touches some guys with no tingle, just strange looks.
Final period finds Kate Crossworth, the super heroine who
goes by the name Popstarr, running errands for the school office. Popstarrr is
a member of the fledgling super group the Belly Back-up Brigade who are huge
fans of the famed Belly Brigade. Kate takes a package to the nurse and comes
across a curious sight. Three girls, one in a cheerleading outfit, are sitting
along the wall. All are looking down with concern and sadness at their big
Karee makes her way pass the Nurse’s office and peeks around
the corner to see the three girls she touched all looking ready to deliver at
any moment. The plain looking girl is stunned at the realization that she has a
meta-power. Karee runs home with thoughts of vengeance on all the women who
have picked on her. Karee goes through her entire wardrobe to come up with a
costume to wear.
That night Karee has assembled her new costume and thinks of
a name. The costume consists of a form fitting cat-suit costume she never had
the courage to wear at Halloween. She has located the pink pointed mask that
resembles cat eye glasses to hide her identity and pink fingerless mesh gloves.
Her pair of pink high-tops and a bright pink scarf that she wears as a sash
around her waist completes the outfit.
As Karee models her costume in the mirror she thinks back to
the moment in the washroom with Bethany. “What’s the worst part of a
pregnancy?” thinks the costumed girl out loud. “That’s it! Look out world or
you will suffer the touch of Miss Morning Sickness!” Karee lets out a laugh as
she stares at the mirror. She decides to add a pink emblem to her costume. The
emblem is made of pink material and is angled to resemble the outline of the
letter ‘M’ with the letter “S” cut out of the center. The emblem is stitched
over her left breast.
The next day Karee goes to school dressed in costume. She
checks her list and seeks out her targets which consist mostly of the popular
girls and the cheer squad. By third period many girls were missing from class.
Karee strolls into History class looking very smug. “Ms
Michaels I don’t believe that your outfit is acceptable school attire. Please
go to the office so you may go home and change.” “No Ms Peirson I think you
should go home and change!” Karee grabs the teacher’s wrist and enjoys the
tingle. Minutes later Ms Peirson bolts from the class clutching her stomach and
a hand clamped over her mouth.
Later that night the Belly Back-ups meet at their
headquarters for their weekly internet postings and team meeting. “The
strangest thing happened at the hospital today,” says team leader and college
freshman Tammi Chekjac the super strong Expandra. “There is a rash of rapid hysterical
pregnancies.” “Are many of these teenagers?” asks Kate. “Yeah, a few older
women but mostly high-schoolers.” Kate fills in what she thinks might be
causing the hysterical pregnancies. “The students said she is calling herself
Miss Morning Sickness. I think Karee Michaels is somehow infecting the girls.”
The team decides to break up into teams and search out Miss
Morning Sickness and put a stop to her reign of terror. Expandra and Popstarr
head east towards the high school. Engorgia and Belly Roll take off to the
hospital north of their base. The two make frequent pit stops to feed Kelly’s
hunger. Golden Glutes and her super speed agree to patrol the rest of the town.
Kelly and Sooya enter the hospital to check if any more
women have been admitted with rapid pregnancy symptoms. “Oh no, we have two
more here!” calls out a nurse. Kelly and Sooya look around and then down at
each others protruding bellies. “Oh no, no we’re not suffering for the preggy
epidemic. This is part of our super powers,” says Engorgia rubbing her big
After some convincing that they are actual meta-humans and
not victims Engorgia and Belly Roll are able to get information on where most
of the patients came from. Sooya radios the rest of the team and relays the information.
“Great work Sooya. At least we can narrow our search. Rhonda please head over
to our location,” requests Expandra. Sooya and Kelly reply and head out.
Rhonda catches up to Tammi and Kate as the meet up in the
parking lot of a fast food place. The girls hear a cry and see a young woman
come stumbling out of the restaurant cradling a belly bump. “Golden Glutes get
her to the hospital,” orders Expandra, Rhonda scoops the big bellied teen up
and sprints off. Seconds later Miss Morning Sickness strolls out with a large
shake in hand.
Karee comes to a halt staring at the two costumed girls
standing in front of her. “So you are the one causing all this trouble. Time to
put a stop to it,” states Tammi as she pushes out her belly. “I don’t think so.
Even if you can stick your belly out, I’m going to make it bigger!”
Before Kate can gulp in some air, the shake hits her in the
face and Karee dives at the blinded heroine. Kate feels her wrists being
grabbed as the tingle of Karee’s hands emanates through Popstarr. Kate feels a
huge wave of nausea come over her and double overs. Kate drops to her knees
clutching her stomach.
Expandra sees the ground shift and a rolling wave through the
asphalt takes the villainess off her feet. “Careful, she needs to touch you to
use hr power,” informs Expandra to her teammates. Miss Morning Sickness rolls
with the wave and she glimpses a big bellied girl dressed as a belly-dancer
causing her belly to gyrate with the ground.
Karee comes to a stop up against a fence. “Who are you?”
“We’re the Belly Back-up Brigade and your downfall,” answers Tammi. Miss
Morning Sickness is distracted by a growing shadow forming around her. Karee
looks up and sees the big bellied form of Engorgia coming out of the sky. Kelly
crashes into the ground causing a crater around her feet. Karee is sent flying
into the air. Before Miss Morning Sickness can hit the ground, she is met by
the distended belly of Expandra. Tammi thrusts out her super strong belly bulge
and knocks the girl across the lot.
Karee’s skid is stopped by a blanket that is wrapped around
her tight at super speed. “Great job girls, that’s our second super villain
caught by us.” “I guess we should get over to the police Expandra,” says Golden
Glutes as she finishes tying up the villainess. “Yeah, and maybe me to the
hospital to get this taken care of.”
The girls turn to see Popstarr cradling her huge belly bump.
“You’ll be fine soon Kate, the rest of the girls reverted back to normal after
a few hours,” says Rhonda. “Well, in that case let’s get back to the base so I
can get some pictures of this belly and post them. But first I have a craving
for a pickle and pineapple pizza.” Popstarr stares off caressing her bulging
belly. the girl break into laughter and head for their base.
