1.) During the Micro Chapters 4 and 5 – shortly after Chapter 2
Cindy was in a huff. She couldn't believe that she had Guy Guy within her clutches and he was stolen right from under her eyes; before they could even do anything sexy at that! She sat stark naked in one her house's offices, which she had commandeered as her own. None of the mansion's staff dared question her lack of attire, and frankly, her shape was so desirable that none wanted her to bother putting on clothing. Cindy's parents were never around, so that wouldn't be a problem either.
Similar to Harriet and Nikki, Cindy experienced another series of small growth spurts after the face-off at lunch. Cindy took this as a sign of her body adapting itself to reclaim her rightful spot at the top of the Meta High food-chain. Of particular note, her body kept growing taller in proportion to her muscularity. As a result, she retained her model-like proportions.
The young woman sat legs crossed in front of a top of the line computer setup, causing her powerful quadriceps to bunch up. She leaned forward and the contours of her perfectly flat abdomen bunched up in response. In front of her was the fruit of her past few hours of labor. It was a screen full of stock commands for the following day. While the market was closed now, she had calculated a series of predictions regarding the movement of various companies. Over the past few hours she had compiled a series of stocks to buy, and then a separate series of short sales. Cindy was almost entirely positive that she would receive a 30% return in one day alone.
The only thing preventing her executing the plan was her own confidence. This seemed too easy. In a mere day she had acquired an understanding of the market that even the most savvy investors could not dream of. Cindy shook her head a bit and reminded herself that she was the greatest person alive before submitting the message.
2.) The Next Day - Friday
Cindy awoke at the crack of dawn, her body entirely rejuvenated. She had grown again, which prompted a thorough examination of herself in the shower. Cindy eagerly brought her slender fingers across her newly lathered body, delighting in how the taut muscles underneath her silky skin had grown even denser.
After washing up, Cindy closely examined herself in the mirror. She noticed that there were a few features on her face that she wasn't particularly fond of. Thinking back to her ability to change her hair and nail color, she focused on those things she wanted to alter. To her delight, right before her very eyes the structure of her face shifted towards that of what she envisioned. This went on for a bit too long and Cindy realized that she didn't care entirely for the changes she made. With another thought she shifted slightly back to her original form, finishing somewhere in between. She continued performing this magic surgery on herself until she achieved a shape she felt was perfect.
A couple hours later at Meta High
Beyond the familiar murmurs of students in disbelief that three of the senior girls had transformed into amazonian powerhouses, not much of note occurred at Meta High during the day. Nikki didn't show up, as her already minimal interest in school had dwindled further thanks to her recent power ups. Seth did go to class however, as Nikki wanted him to spy on her competition.
Harriet spent most of the day practicing her budding abilities of telepathy in tandem with studying subjects that were far beyond the scope of the class. She had come to find that it was fairly easy to fully comb most of the thoughts of her classmates. In general, the closer proximity she was to her target the clearer their thoughts were. Only a select few students' minds offered any resistance. In general, Harriet noticed that the most difficult minds to access were those of the generally more intelligent students. Not necessarily those with the best grades, but those who exhibited high intuition.
Harriet dwelled on Guy's suggestion for going through the experiences of those she read, but found that it was a task that was beyond her capabilities – for the time being at least. This bothered Harriet somewhat as she was eager to improve herself as much as possible, but for now she had to settle on gleaming pieces of knowledge here and there.
While Harriet dabbled in her classmate's thoughts, Cindy was compulsively checking her investments on a high-end smartphone. At first Cindy was discreet about this, as use of personal electronics in class was prohibited, but eventually she decided to throw caution to the wind and openly reveal her breach of the rules.
“Cindy.” The teacher started, moving towards the student. “You know fully well that we don't allow electronics in the classroom.”
Cindy gazed up lazily with a bemused expression.
“Furthermore” the teacher continued. “Your manner of dress is completely inappropriate...”
Cindy stood up to her full height, veritably towering over the teacher who stood at the average female height of 5'4”. She looked down at the smaller woman with a cruel smile. “Are you sure about that?” As she gazed into the eyes of her instructor, Cindy focused on imparting her will, on mentally dominating the other woman.
The teacher felt a chill run down her spine. “Uh...” her mind was addled. Was it really a problem if Cindy used her phone in class? It's not like the lecture was really that pertinent anyways, neither was this class in the grand scheme of life. “Well...”
“Well what?” Cindy asked, crossing her arms beneath her ample bosom, causing it to bulge forward. “You wouldn't put clothing on a perfectly crafted statue. So why would you cover this body?” Cindy questioned.
A cold sweat broke out on the teacher's forehead. She stared, transfixed at Cindy's flawless midsection. She couldn't believe that a human could possess skin so smooth, so unblemished. That a torso could have such a fusion of long, feminine lines representing abs of unfathomable density.
Wordlessly, the transfixed teacher brought her hand up to Cindy's torso. The students – those who weren't entranced by Cindy's force of will, snickered at the display and murmured amongst themselves.
Everyone in the room knew who the real power was.
Later at Lunch
Cindy finished purchasing her meal and headed to her usual table. She was met with a sight she didn't want to see: Harriet was smack dab in her usual spot, with Guy Guy to her right. Worse yet – everyone at the table was laughing! They were enjoying Harriet's company!
The blonde scowled and upon closer observation her fears worsened: Harriet was even larger than the last time they met. Cindy thought her growth spurt was impressive, but Harriet's thick limbs put hers to shame.
Cindy moved over to the table and lingered for a moment. The two girls stared in one another's eyes with contempt similar to animals feuding over turf. Harriet focused the entirety of her thought process on trying to scan Cindy's mind for precious knowledge. Despite her best efforts, Harriet simply could not access Cindy's mind. It was like an iron fortress. She couldn't even get an emotional read – at least not beyond what was visible from the taller girl's body language.
Despite Harriet's inability to pierce Cindy's mind, the visible differences in their physiques allowed Harriet to invoke a form of primal control of the situation. Her right arm remained loosely wrapped around Guy while her left hung over an empty chair. She appeared to take up a large amount of space this way while her relaxed posture indicated that she didn't fear Cindy at all. Better yet, she found that she was capable of dispelling Cindy's mental choke-hold on the other students with even more ease than before.
After lingering for a few moments in silence, glaring menacingly at Harriet, Cindy strode off. She took her lunch to the library. Some of the staff objected, but a mere few moments after they were compelled to see the logic in Cindy's reasoning.
While in the library Cindy checked her stocks and was delighted to find as a whole her portfolio was growing even faster than she initially anticipated. Even if Harriet had her beat for now, Cindy would gain true power – financial domination!
Seth's house was a chaotic mess. Food boxes and wrappers were strewn around the floor in addition to various articles of clothing. The once relatively tidy household had become a disheveled den of hedonism. Nikki sat dead center in the living room couch, her immense mass taking up the same surface area as both of the boys flanking her combined. She had continuously grown the past few days – her massive, swollen biceps were legitimately more than twice as large as anyone else's in the house.
Not only were Nikki's muscles ridiculously large, but they were unfathomably strong. At one point she had used Jed's car as a workout tool until he pleaded with her to stop before she broke it. Since then she had become considerably stronger, though the true extent of her strength was unknown to her.
Seth and Doug were each on one side of her. The three Meta High students were all playing Super Smash Bros. None of the boys had even an inkling of a chance at facing off against Nikki 1v1, so they had resorted to teaming up against her. Despite this, Nikki's powerful mind and superior reflexes allowed her to continually ward off their advances. Over the past 24 hours, defeating the combined efforts of Seth and Doug had turned from a difficult task to a trivial affair. They were in awe at Nikki's ability to read everything they would do and punish them virtually for it.
“Jeddy, you're going to have to suck it up and learn to play so we can have a 3v1” Nikki yelled out with a thrilling laugh.
Jed, who was spectating the match, rolled his eyes and sighed. He still felt that video games were a waste of time, but he was in no position to question how Nikki she spent her time.
“Say, Seth, I guess the parents are still out of town. Might be out until the end of the month.” Jed explained loud enough that all three of them could hear. Immediately they understood the implications this news brought – their animalistic living habits could continue unimpeded.
“That's... kind of worrying actually.” Seth replied. “Did they give you any other details?”
Jed shook his head. “Nope. They just said not to worry, to tell you they love you and that they've put some money in my account to buy food and stuff.”
“Eh, it's in the best interest of the story.” Nikki announced. “It'd be kind of boring to read about your parents to be honest. I mean, maybe there could be some neat little scene where they succumb to my awesomeness and surrender the house to me or whatever, but...” Nikki shrugged. “Best to keep it simple. I agree with the author on this one. Now if he'd stop pussyfooting around and let me permanently drain those other two muscle bitches...”
The boys collectively forced out a laugh as they nervously glanced at one another. While they were all committed to Nikki to differing degrees, none of them quite understood or accepted her insistence that they existed in a fictional universe, solely for the bemusement of others.
In their distraction, Nikki had finished off Seth and Doug's avatars, netting herself another 1v2 victory. “Booyah!” she yelled out before wrapping her huge arms around the boys, bringing them in close. From the angle Jed stood at, it looked as if each of Nikki's biceps were as thick as the boys' waists.
“Speaking of money, while the 'rents did just give me an influx, we're getting kind of low...” Jed said, glancing at the bank account balance on his smartphone.
Nikki let out a yawn. “I guess you boys have footed the bill around here. Tell you what, my super brain will think up a way to grind some cash when we need it.”
“Speaking of your brain...” Jed started. “Uh.. I'm feeling recovered from last time. Do you think you could, uh... well you know.” Jed was visibly nervous, as if he felt ashamed about his request.
Nikki immediately knew what he was referring to. “Drain you again? I love that you love that.” she mused. “Well, alright, come on over!”
Jed shuffled over and sat down on her lap facing her, bringing his lips to hers. The other boys watched with rapt fascination as they watched Jed's body shrink while they felt Nikki's body growing beside them. It was a temporary transfer, but a thrilling one none the less.
All throughout Meta High the students spoke in hushed tones of who were referred to in some circles as “the goddesses” in others “the monsters” and others still “the giantesses”. Through divine favor, Cindy, Harriet and Nikki shared no classes together, nor did they pass one another in the hallway. Still, they could each hear through the student grapevine that the other chosen girls had grown over the weekend as well.
Harriet had nearly perfected her ability to delve into others' minds, and had begun to understand how to experience their memories, though her mastery of the ability was still fairly limited. As a result, she was able to see through the past eyes of other students precisely how much the other two girls had grown. Nikki and Cindy on the other hand waited with slight anxiety to see how their competition had progressed.
The girls each had caused varying problems for the faculty due to their size alone. All three of them caused the floor to quake whenever they moved between classes, and had difficulty fitting into their seats. Harriet had actually crushed the desk beneath her and spent the rest of that period, with her teacher's permission, fixing it in the school's wood workshop; when she was finished the desk was sturdier than ever. Still, as a result of this, Harriet was permitted to either stand or sit on the floor depending on the class.
Cindy on the other hand could barely fit her obscenely long legs comfortably beneath the standard desks. Fortunately, there were special seats on hand for extremely tall students. Not that this mattered much as Cindy had brought her laptop to class to focus on manipulating her stock portfolio. The few teachers who dared to question her were instantly quelled by her powers of suggestion.
With constant access to the internet during the hours the stock market was open, Cindy was able to aggressively initiate trade after trade in real-time. To make matters even better for the blonde, her mind had sharpened considerably over the weekend, allowing her to see new lines of wealth generation. She had become almost prophetical in her market predictions, able to understand with eerily high success what direction a stock would move within the next hour. As a result, Cindy's portfolio saw a staggeringly high return rate, growing nearly 5 times in size over the course of the school day – an accomplishment that almost any other trader would consider to be sheer dumb luck.
Eventually lunch time came – the one period where all three of the girls would be forced to face one another. Nikki was already there, she had in fact been in the lunch room since the first lunch period. (Meta High has 5 lunch periods spread out – the girls normally dined during the 5th) She had decided the lectures were droll and setup a stand to challenge people in chess, with a collection pot. The rule was that it took $5 to enter, but anyone who manged to beat Nikki would win the entirety of its contents.
At first it was difficult to convince students to part with their hard-begged lunch money and allowances, but as the pot grew, more and more were emboldened to take their chance. That was to say, Nikki continued to defeat challenger after challenger, accruing a considerable winning streak.
The school's faculty tried to warn Nikki that not only was she out of class, but competitions involving money were barred by school rules. Nikki merely laughed in their faces, flexed her inhuman muscles (which were exposed by clothing that did not meet dress code) and physically bent a few steel chairs into metallic pretzels to prove her point (an act of vandalism: another offense, this one punishable by suspension and/or expulsion). Despite racking up a tremendous number of violations of rules, enough to call in security, not a single member of the staff wanted to attempt imposing on Nikki. They wondered if her outrageously muscled and curvacious body could even be harmed by bullets. For now the mammoth girl was content beating students out of their money in a consensual contest, which was likely the least egregious thing she could do with her abilities for amusement.
Finally, the fifth lunch period rolled around. Nikki crushed a few more students quickly, netting her another $15. That's when Nikki's next challenger strode in: Cindy. Cindy was always tall, but now she was the tallest student in the entire school. She stood close to 7 feet in height, yet she did not have the lanky proportions that often haunted those of such height. Instead she had long, powerful muscles coupled with a large chest. She wore a sleeveless halter-top that showcased her capped shoulders and V-taper. Cindy always had an air of sophistication to her, but now she was bordering on royal in demeanor.
“Believe it or not, I'm pretty good at chess.” Cindy explained as she dropped a five dollar bill into the pot. “One of my tutors trained me when I was young. Sometimes at really boring parties I kick someone's ass at it to showcase that I'm not a dumb bimbo.”
Nikki glanced up with a smirk. Her immense build was visibly thicker than Cindy's, a pleasant reversal from the last time they met – plus Nikki had the ability to temporarily empower herself with an adrenaline rush, or by kissing the strength out of someone else. If Nikki beat Cindy in a mental-based competition, it'd be undeniable that she was the superior woman.
“You're on.” Nikki setup the board while Cindy sat down across from her. A coin flip determined who went first and they began.
Nikki was initially caught off guard by how competent Cindy was. She had recently defeated almost everyone from the school's chess club who thought they would earn some easy money. Cindy however played a much tighter game. Despite this, Nikki began to see patterns to her play and was able to adapt to them on the fly. A few turns passed, pieces flew, and eventually Nikki had placed the taller girl in checkmate.
Cindy stared at the board in disbelief. Had Nikki of all people thwarted her in a game of strategy?
“Play again?” Nikki offered with a knowing grin.
Cindy scowled, threw another five dollar bill into the pot, and deftly reset the board before taking the first move. To Nikki's surprise, she had actually already anticipated precisely what Cindy would do. All of her life Nikki had never been a particularly bright girl, so it was a refreshing change of pace to the be the one who was mentally ahead. This bled over into the rest of the match as Nikki anticipated every move Cindy took, and after a few key maneuvers placed the taller girl in check-mate once again.
Nikki leaned back and put her thick arms behind her head, tensing and untensing her arms, causing the meaty biceps to bounce. “It's pretty clear that I'm way stronger than you AND smarter too.” she declared with a childish grin.
Cindy stood up to her full height. “This is ridiculous. Who cares, it's just chess. That doesn't mean anything.”
Nikki stood up as well. “You're a bit taller than me and have bigger tits, but let's get real.” The shorter girl took a step forward – it became abundantly clear that while Cindy was very muscular, Nikki simply outclassed her considerably. “Our latest batch of power ups gave me the brains and the brawn around here.”
Cindy scowled again.
Nikki looked up and smiled warmly. “I do have to admit, you're pretty fucking hot Cindy. You'll make a nice addition to my harem after I dominate the world.” She reached up, grabbed the back of Cindy's head, bringing her down to her face before initiating a passionate kiss.
As their lips locked, Cindy could feel that Nikki was trying to do something ill intentioned. Her body automatically steeled itself, preventing any of its precious strength and energy from being stolen by the shorter girl. She could have tried to broken free, but Cindy knew that was likely a fool's errand due to Nikki's immense strength. The blonde decided to play along and returned Nikki's passion in full. She went so far as to grab onto Nikki's biceps and were amazed to find that even with her own superhuman strength that the shorter girl's arms only slightly yielded to her grip. This led Cindy to grope Nikki's muscles further, becoming lost in their splendor. Of course, this was, entirely for show – or so Cindy reasoned with herself.
“Ahem.” A familiar voice cleared her throat.
Nikki and Cindy broke their embrace and turned to find Harriet standing, arms akimbo. While Nikki's muscles were impressively huge, Harriet's were even bigger! Not only were Harriet's biceps visibly larger than the other girls', but her breasts were larger too. Her entire build was extremely thick and powerful, like an exaggerated version of a power lifter's. She stood shorter than the other two girls, nearly a full head below Cindy, and half of that beneath Nikki. This perspective lead to Harriet's muscles appearing even larger in relation to the other girls than they actually were.
“If I'm not interrupting anything, I'd like to challenge the champ.” Harriet explained before retrieving a five dollar bill out of her purse, dropping it into the prize pot.
Nikki tilted her head to the side for a moment before agreeing to the challenge. If she defeated Harriet, there would be no doubt that she was the smartest girl! Emboldened by her triumph over Cindy, she eagerly setup the board and a coin was flipped to determine who went first.
Throughout the game Harriet attempted to probe Nikki's mind, but found that she could only detect certain thoughts directly tied to strong emotions – similar to when she tried to read Guy's mind. Despite this, Harriet still managed to completely and utterly dominate Nikki. It was not unlike a cat toying with a mouse. Eventually Harriet placed Nikki into checkmate, putting her out of her misery.
“God fucking dammit! I needed that cash!” Nikki yelled out, slamming her fists on the table, causing the chess pieces to fly in every direction throughout the cafeteria.
“Keep it.” Harriet said. “Keep my fiver too if you want, I don't care.”
This time it was Nikki who scowled. “You smug bitch! I bet I'm at least stronger than you! That hack Magnus guy and those readers wouldn't make you both stronger AND smarter than me!” Nikki hollered. With an exaggerated motion she tossed the chess set aside and slammed her elbow to the table. “Arm wrestle! I don't care if this is in almost every Magneto story. This is how we're doing it!”
Harriet was unsure of what Nikki was babbling about, but decided to humor her. As their grips met, the tremendous slabs of meat of the girls' biceps bulged out even further. As the power packed arms of the girls pulled on one another, the table beneath them trembled and quaked.
They continued applying more and more force, trying to gain the upper hand on the other competitor. Both Nikki and Harriet's biceps swelled to inhuman proportions, as did their shoulders and triceps. Nikki grabbed a hold of the table with her free hand. “Oh no you don't!” Harriet yelled out before doing the same with hers. Both girls were now applying the entirety of their upper body strength on both each other and the cheap plastic table holding them. A cracking sound rang out and a moment later, the table housing the arm-wrestling duel shattered, causing large chunks to fling out across the room.
With no clear winner in sight, without uttering a word, the girls transitioned to a full-on grappling contest. Beefy arm pushed against beefy arm as they vied to prove who was stronger. Nikki could sense that Harriet was going to eventually win if things continued, so she activated her adrenaline rush, causing every muscle in her frame to ripple and expand further. This boost of strength allowed her to gain the upper hand.
Harriet heard a loud shout from Nikki's mind 'Just gotta kiss her and drain her!' Harriet immediately knew that she needed to make sure that Nikki's lips did not meet hers. Desperate to ensure this, she activated her own mimic'd version of Nikki's adrenaline rush. Both girls reached immense proportions. While Nikki's rush was stronger than Harriet's imitation, Harriet had a stronger base to work off of. As a result, they came to another standstill. Overall Nikki was slightly stronger, but due to the unreal mass of Harriet's arms, and Harriet's defensive positioning, Nikki needed more power to push through and reach the prize.
Nikki yelled out with exasperation “Come on guys, yeah, you, reading this! Make me stronger than this chick so I can suck her dry! Wouldn't that be awesome!?”
Most of the onlookers were thoroughly confused about what the massive woman was going on about, but Harriet could sense that Nikki wasn't simply insane. She could tell that there was some kind of logic behind the outburst, and some force out there could understand it. A shiver ran down Harriet's spine, but she remained vigilant and was more sure than ever that she couldn't let Nikki plant a kiss on her lips.
Muscles rippled and strained from pressure as Nikki tried power through and press her lips to Harriet's. Harriet continued to hold her off. This continued for multiple minutes as more and more onlookers gathered and pointed at the girls with mouths agape. Nikki began moving her feet, steering the direction of the grapple in an attempt to wear Harriet down or catch her off guard. As a result, the muscle bound amazons began bumping into various objects, trampling them beneath their immense weight. While Harriet didn't want to cause wanton property damage, she had little choice in the matter. Chairs, tables and a couple backpacks were crushed beneath hundreds upon hundreds of pounds of feminine muscle.
Harriet had about enough of this. Property was being damaged, and this was more than an innocent wrestle – Nikki clearly had a trick up her sleeve, possibly a way to steal her strength. A scenario that would be disastrous for everyone involved. Harriet's mind came up with a quick solution – something that would catch Nikki off guard. The brunette dwelled on her ability to manipulate light, and imagined her mouth projecting a blinding amount. With that thought in mind, Harriet executed her plan. She opened wide and a huge ray of light came out, directed squarely towards Nikki's eyes. The taller girl screamed out and loosened her grip, allowing Harriet to slip out.
While Nikki was doubled over Harriet thought back to some martial arts videos she saw. Her swift mind instantly calculated a suitable pressure point and she mimicked the motion of a perfectly controlled fist, slamming Nikki exactly as planned. Nikki's flesh was thick and armor-like, but Harriet's strong blow was highly effective thanks to its masterful positioning. Harriet followed up with a few more blows on other pressure points, and after Nikki was subdued, Harriet brought her into a headlock and quickly knocked her out.
“She'll be out for exactly 17 minutes.” Harriet said loud enough for any interested party in the vicinity to hear. “She'll be fine. That body of hers is extremely durable.”
With that Harriet dusted her hands off. She didn't want to resort to violence, but she could tell that Nikki truly really was going to 'drain her', or at least attempt to. The thought her strength in Nikki's hands on top of her existing strength terrified Harriet. Harriet shook her head and took Guy Guy within her arms. That was a close call. Too close. Harriet knew she would have to take her self improvement more seriously. As long as Nikki had these capabilities, Harriet knew she'd have to be strong enough to keep her in check.
What happens next? Well that's up to you! Will you empower Nikki and let her have her revenge? Will you keep Harriet superior for yet another chapter? Or perhaps it's finally time for Cindy to retrieve her spot as the queen?
