Belly Girl #5: Enter the Inflator
For the past few weeks things were really
quiet and normal for Tiffany. Gary and Laurie kept working with her at Dr.
Holstrom's lab. The kids were proving to be a great help to the doctor. The
relationship between Gary and Tiffany was still a bit awkward but the two were
growing closer all the time. After a day of helping Dr. Holstrom with one of
his less dangerous experiments, the gang is sitting around the lab talking.
"You know things may have changed drastically in our lives, but I think
it's for the better." "What do you mean Laurie?" "Ever
since you became Belly Girl and started appearing in public the whole town
seems, I don't know prouder or something." "Yeah, your right Laurie,
people are taking pride in what they do. Just look how the crime rate around here
has dropped off. People are looking up all the time to see if they can see
their local heroine in action." "Gee Gary you mean you're not jealous
that people are looking at me." "Oh… um… well…"It's the ideas
that the side of truth and justice are based on when they see you in action dear."
"Why thank you doctor." says Tiffany, blushing slightly. "You
know I never thought that I could or should I say Belly Girl could impact
people that way. After all I'm just a soon to be high school senior."
"No kidding school is just around the corner and football practice starts
next week." The mood turns sober as the kids start to think about the
impending school year.
Dr. Holstrom goes into his office and after
a while returns with a large binder. "This might brighten up the mood in
here." As the doctor puts the binder down, Tiffany opens it up to find a
scrap book filled with all the articles written about Belly Girl. "Dr.
Holstrom this is wonderful! When did you find the time to do this?"
"My goodness you think I do nothing but work. I need a life too you
now." Everyone starts to laugh as they thumb through the scrap book.
Intermixed with the news articles are web sites and print outs of discussion
groups from the Internet. "Wow! I didn't know that Belly Girl was such a
big thing." "Quit being so modest and enjoy the fame Tiffany."
Laurie says while reading some of the things the discussion groups had to say.
Dr. Holstrom then brings out another folder
full of paper. "These are my personal notes I've been collecting on the
research I've done on you and your escapades. There is also a section of your
abilities and the results of the tests we ran." Dr. Holstrom's notes were
startling to see for all the information he gathered on the short career of
Belly Girl. "Doctor how come all this effort spent on me?" "Well
Tiffany, I feel responsible for what happened to you. It was my experiment that
evidently caused you to develop your abilities. Plus I have the strangest feeling
that the twisted mind and ego of Dr. Maelstrom is involved with all your
adventures." "What makes you think that doctor?" "Well for
one thing that robot you fought recently was a prototype service bot that
Nucleolabs designed for hazardous work. "Now that you mention it, I
remember seeing Maelstrom at the haunted house, remember girls."
"Come to think of it you did point him out." "Yeah, and that big
busted amazon in leather, what did he call her? Domi something."
"Dominatra Laurie, that's who Jaw Breaker said sent him to get me."
"Man this is really getting to be like a comic book. We have an evil
scientist and villainess, giant robots, killer psychos." "Don't
forget our lovely super heroine." "No Gary we won't forget our
heroine." Says Laurie sarcastically. "Maybe Belly Girl should look
into finding out what Dr. Maelstrom has been up to. Oh my God did they ever
find the people that were kidnapped from the carnival?" "Tiffany you
need to read the paper more often. I thought you knew. The police caught the truck
with the kidnap victims across the state line. Here is the article right here.
The goons were pulled over for speeding. The dopes panicked and got
caught." "That's a relief", states Tiffany thinking she really
screwed up this early in her superhero career.
As the kids get ready to head home, Dr.
Holstrom has one more surprise. Coming from a locker in the back of the lab,
the doctor is carrying what looks like a small roll of fabric. The black fabric
looks thin and shiny. "Remember when you girls were talking about a
costume for Tiffany. Well I'm no fashion designer but I did come up with this.
It's a spandex based polymer that is woven into a fabric. You will find it very
stretchable which I think is something that would be of some use to you."
"Thanks doctor this is great." Tiffany takes the bolt from the doctor
and the kids head to Tiffany's home. When they arrive the three find that
Tiffany's mom is away on business once again. This really tests the self
control of Tiffany and Gary. The thought of Gary staying at her house with no
one else was a very exciting idea. Gary was getting aroused thinking about the
possibility of making love to Tiffany both in her normal form and with the huge
belly. Laurie sensing the emotional tension helped ease the feelings of temptation.
"Tiffany the note says you're suppose to spend the weekend at my
home." "I wonder if mom is getting suspicious of me hiding something."
Gary reluctantly takes the girls to
Laurie's house after Tiffany packs a quick bag. The girls say good bye to Gary and settle in for the night. After dinner and a little TV the girls head to Laurie's
room. Tiffany stares at the fabric that Dr. Holstrom made and then notices some
fashion designs sitting on Laurie's desk. "Hey Laurie when did you get
into designing clothes?" "Oh um for some time now. It's kind of a
hobby of mine." "Do you think you can design a sexy costume for Belly
Girl?" "You really want sexy Tiff?" "Well sexy like in the
comic books." "You know I never designed a superhero costume before.
We better get some research material for this project." "What, where
are going to find research material?" "My brother's comic book
collection. There are all kinds of costumes in there." Laurie and Tiffany
run into Laurie's brother's room and snag every comic they can find.
After hours of looking through the books and
making sketches, Tiffany finds the look she wants. The costume is a short
sleeved, short legged unitard with belly cut out from just below her naval, to
just below her chest. The sides are cut out to expose her hips, leaving two
thin strips connecting the top and bottom half of the front of the costume.
"I think that is sexy enough Tiffany." "This will look great
with my sunglasses and my hair pulled back." "How soon do you think
this will take to make?" "I really don't know, this fabric is really
weird. Lets play around with the stuff first to find out how far it
stretches." The girls cut a foot long piece of the spandex material. They
then grab either end and pull in opposite directions. The piece stretches
easily across the room without any tearing. "Man this stuff is something
else." Laurie says, staring at the strip of material.
With no measurements needed the costume was
completed in a few hours. Laurie also made a few outfits out of the fabric. Laurie
was surprised at how the outfits made her look. She especially likes the
catsuit which hugged her shapely body in all the right places. Tiffany couldn't
wait to try out the costume. After quickly changing into the costume, Tiffany
comes out of the bathroom modeling the suit. "Man this makes me feel sexy.
Well here goes nothing." Tiffany reaches down and tenderly rubs her belly.
She looks down and marvels how the fabric holds as her swelling belly, breasts,
and hips stretch the costume. The cut of the outfit is perfect, showing off
what Tiffany wanted bare. "Wait to the world sees the official look of
Belly Girl." Tiffany knew this would definitely turn heads.
A knock comes from the door. The girls stare
at each other in panic. Laurie yells out "Just a minute" as she grabs
a sweat shirt and throws it at Tiffany. Tiffany pulls the shirt over her head
as Laurie throws on a flannel. Tiffany goes to pull the sweat shirt down and is
bound up by her big belly. She quickly rubs her bulge and reverts to normal sliding
the shirt the rest of the way down. Laurie opens the door to see her brother.
"Hey sis what're you doing in here with all my comics?" "Would
you believe designing costumes for Belly Girl?" "No, you're so weird.
Can I have my books back?" "Sure squirt. Here you go." After
that close call the girls decide to put up their sexy wear and go to bed.
The following day the girls take a trip to
the local mall to check out the fall fashions. The two could not resist wearing
their new outfits that they made from the super stretch fabric, even though it
was covered with street clothes. Tiffany has on a loose blouse and light short
skirt. Laurie being more daring just wore a pair of ripped up jeans and a shear
top. As they roamed the mall they stopped to get a bite to eat. A crowd of
people were forming around one end of the mall. From the upper level Tiffany
could see the flashing lights of an emergency vehicle of some sort over the
heads of the crowd.
The police were forcing the crowd back away
from the entrance. "We need to do our job please back away!" states
one of the officers. "My God what happened to that poor woman?"
"I've never seen anything like it!" came comments from the passing
crowd. The girls were curious of what was going on but couldn't get and answer
from anyone. Within seconds the mall was forced to close. Tiffany takes Laurie
into the service tunnel to avoid the rushing crowd. "Something seriously
strange is going on here Tiff." "You're not kidding; these people
really seemed spooked about something." The girls decide to go through the
tunnel to the parking lot and head over to the lab. Upon exiting the tunnel the
girls see why the ambulance and squad cars were outside.
"Oh man another one, this is seriously
freaking me out Johnny." says one of the EMTs. In the center of the
vehicles the girls see what looks like a giant ball with arms, legs, and a
head. It's a woman who is moaning in pain as the men try to keep her from
rolling around. There are blankets covering up the mounds that must be her breasts
and some draped over her privates. Lying around the poor woman are the tattered
remains of her clothes. A huge moving van pulls up and the crew of men gently
loads the woman in the van and drive away with a police escort. "We need
to get to Dr. Holstrom and find out what is going on." "The car is on
the other side of the mall Tiff." "Here hold my bag Laurie."
Tiffany looks around to make sure no one is in sight. She proceeds to strip off
her skirt and blouse. She gives her belly a rub and swells up. Laurie hands
Tiffany her sunglasses as she stuffs the discarded clothes is Tiffany's bag.
"I'm glad I wore these boots. They go well with my costume."
"Come on sex pot lets get that big belly in gear." Says Laurie as she
grips onto Tiffany's shoulders. Tiffany takes to the air.
After a swift flight to the lab, the two
girls enter to see Dr. Holstrom watching a news report. "The most recent
victim, a 23 year old college student was found outside the River mall. That
brings the total to eight victims. It seems this individual calling himself the
Inflator is targeting women between the ages of 16 and 28. The doctors are
treating the victims at General Mercy hospital, but no information has been
released as to the condition of the victims. For more update on the story
please stay tuned…" The doctor turns to see the girls and turns off the
set. He looks at Tiffany. "A bit risqué don't you think." "No I
don't." "What's going on here doc? We just came from the mall where
that poor woman was swollen up like a huge ball." "The news said that
in the past two days women have been attacked by a man wearing some type of
backpack with a cable or hose running to a device strapped to his wrist."
"So this guy is causing the women to swell up like balloons."
"Why would he do this, it doesn't make any sense." "Well,
Tiffany the man who is calling himself the Inflator is said to be Mark Ellis.
Mark used to work for Nucleolabs a few years ago. A true prodigy. Let me tell
you. he was working on a form of growth inducer to use on vegetation. His
theory was sound but he couldn't get it to work. The device he invented would
cause the vegetation to grow in size, inflate but the fluids slowly turned to
gas and explode. This and the added stress of being emotionally immature.
Dealing with his parents divorce, the kid snapped. Blames his father's new
girlfriend. The poor kid was put away." "This guy is a serious
lunatic and he's killing women." "Well none of his victims have died
yet. I'm on my way over to the hospital to see if I can help. But you're right
he needs to be stopped. You girls are welcome to stay here if you want."
"Thank you doctor, we appreciate that."
As the doctor heads out the door, Tiffany
still with big belly wonders what would happen if this guy turned his device on
her. The thought of growing to the breaking point startled her. Laurie couldn't
shake the thought of the poor woman in the parking lot, totally helpless. The
girls sitting around wondering what to do. Tiffany, rapping her fingers on her
big belly feels she must do something regardless of the risk. But what? She is
unharmed by a physical attack but this is different. "I have no idea what
the Inflator's device would do to me. But I got to do something. Laurie, I'm
going to go out and find this Inflator and stop the terror he's causing."
"Are you sure Tiff. I mean sure you can stop bullets but what about his
weapon? God what if he gets you? You're not exactly petite right now."
"I'll figure out a way. It's my duty as Belly Girl after all."
Tiffany put on her sunglasses looks down to check that she is ready and heads
for the door. The last thing Belly Girl hears before taking off is be careful.
Belly Girl returns to the last crime scene
at the mall. She finds a few police still investigating the area for any clues
as to where the Inflator may have traveled when he made his escape. As she
approaches the scene she hears a wolf whistle escape from one of the officers.
She smiles to herself as she lands near the police. "Hey Belly Girl long
time no see." "Yeah, having you around is making our jobs easier but
is seems to be bringing the nutcases out of the wood work." "I get
that feeling myself officer." "By the way love the new outfit, it
flatters your um assets nicely." "Officer please you're making me
blush." "Enough of the chit chat, here to help us stop the
Inflator?" "If I can." The police fill Tiffany in on all the
details they have. Belly Girl tells the police that she is going to fly over
the last reported direction the Inflator was headed to see if there is any place
he could be holed up. The police agree and hand her a radio so she can contact
them if she spots the Inflator. She takes off flying in the direction the
police pointed to begin her search.
Soon Belly Girl spots a small shack set up
by the railroad tracks. She radios in the location as a possible hide out for
the Inflator. Suddenly Belly Girl hears a woman's scream coming from the nearby
subdivision. She heads in the direction of the cry. Upon arriving at the scene,
Belly Girl sees a young woman, her back to a car crying in fright. A small
young man standing about 5 foot 4 inches tall and not in the best of shape,
weighing about 185 pounds. He has a strange device strapped to his right wrist.
A heavy cable connects the device to a strange looking backpack. The crazy
green eyed man with the unruly black hair is screaming. "Shut up! Shut up,
it's all your fault! They would still be married if not for you! They would
still love me!" The woman cries back "I don't…know what you're
talking about. I don't even know you." "Why would you care! You took
my father away! Now you'll pay!" Tiffany radios the police of the location
of the assault.
"Die!" Belly Girl looks down to
see a red glowing area begin to build up in the tube like device on the
Inflator's wrist. Belly Girl reacts swiftly, dropping the radio, she dives for
the girl. Tiffany grabs the girl up from under the arms as a stream of
energized gas comes flowing from the Inflator's device. "Hey where'd you
go! Come back here!" the Inflator yells looking around for his newest
victim. He then sees a police car come squealing around the corner. He takes
off running into the patch of woods behind the subdivision. Belly Girl lands
and asks if the woman is okay. "Thank you Belly Girl. You saved me!" "Stay
with the police, they will take care of you. I have to stop this nut."
Belly Girl takes off after the Inflator. As she flies over the woods Tiffany
hears and sees the shack she passed earlier erupt into a ball of flame. Belly
Girl turns to find the police surrounding the area. No one is hurt. "The
place was booby trapped. It must have been the Inflator's hideout."
With his hideout gone Mark Ellis catches his
breath while hiding in a nearby storm drain. "I'll need parts to keep my
equipment running. Nucleolabs. Yeah that's where I'll find them." The
Inflator checks to see if the area is clear and heads out for the lab. As
evening sets in Mark has made it to the Nucleolab facilities. The heavily
guarded entrance prompts him to look for a new way in. He spots the warehouse
and decides that to be an easier target. Mark sneaks into the warehouse only to
be surprised to find a fully functioning laboratory set up. Just then Laurie
spots Mark. "Hello, can I help you?" "You! So you think you're
smart like me huh! Think you can stop me!" "What are you talk… oh my
god you're the Inflator!" "Yes soon to be the last thing you will
ever see." Says Mark in a low sinister voice, as he aims his device at
Belly Girl enters the lab frustrated for
loosing the Inflator. Mark turns to look at Tiffany. "You! What, now you
think you can have my father's child! I do not want some freak half brother or
sister !" The Inflator trains his device on Tiffany and starts to power it
up. Belly Girl afraid that a physical confrontation could seriously hurt
Laurie, who is backing away from the fight slowly, starts to concentrate on her
belly. "I hope this works." Tiffany thinks to herself. Belly Girl
feels her body building up with energy. "What are you doing? I haven't
fired yet." Says the Inflator as Tiffany's big belly doubles in size right
in front of him. "No matter vengeance is mine!" The two fire at the
The Inflator's energized gas, Belly Girl's
super charged Belly Beam. Tiffany's beam proves more powerful then the
energized gas. The beam from Belly Girl's enormous belly strikes the Inflator's
device causing it to explode. The feedback from the exploding wrist device sets
off the backpack. Laurie is knocked back by the force of the wave of the
released energy. As the smoke clears from the explosion and Tiffany's belly
shrinks back to its normal bulge, Belly Girl sees the Inflator crouched over
holding his ruined hand. His face is a blank stare. Tiffany then hears a moan
from across the room. Forgetting about Mark, Tiffany runs over to her friend.
"Laurie! Laurie, are you okay?" "Uhh…I think so." replies
Laurie in a groggy voice. Tiffany turns around to find that the Inflator is
gone. "Oh I feel weird Tiff." Tiffany turns back to Laurie and is
shocked to see what is happening to Laurie. With her hands placed on the sides
of her tummy Laurie is starting to inflate like a balloon. Soon her body had
ripped through her outer clothes leaving a very swollen Laurie standing in her
stretched out cat suit. "Tiff what is happening to me!" Laurie looks
like a huge ball with arms, legs and her pretty head on top. "I don't know
Laurie, I don't know!"
