Time for an adventure -- Libra (2003)
Holly waited until her best friend Jackie arrived before she told them everything. Jackie, thinking this was a group joke, hardly listened to the unbelievable stories of their experience at younger ages and older. Mostly this was for Michael and Jackie's benefit, because Holly's boyfriend and Holly sister knew all the details.
"So what is the gag?" Jackie asked looking at the group. She thought the group could at least come up with a better story then this to trick her.
"No gag or joke." Holly said seriously and waited for Jackie to slip up.
"Granted that your sister does look a little like Megan, but come on. Is that best this group can come up with?" Jackie asked them.
"Well that is your answer I guess we don't have a choice. What age would you like to be Jackie?" Holly said in response to her disbelief.
Before Holly could stop her, Jackie stepped forward and touched the assembled hourglass on the table.
"I wish to be a little kid again." Jackie said in mocking tone.
"Sorry to spoil the joke." Jackie started to say then stopped.
Jackie then clutched her stomach and had a strange puzzle look on her face.
"Let me guess Jackie. Feels like your insides are on fire and yet you feel no pain." Holly said as she stood up and gave her seat to Jackie.
"Yeah. What did you do to me?" Jackie asked.
"We did nothing. It was your wish." Holly answered.
"Sis, go run into the bathroom and get a mirror for Jackie. Seeing is believing after all." Holly said to her sister.
Heather jumped up and returned within seconds. She herself didn't want to miss Jackie's downfall to childhood. Already Jackie was in her early teens at best. Too shocked to move or say anything Jackie watched in the mirror as her face changed and the world around her grew. In her mind she thought it had to be a trick. A form of hypnotize or drugs they put in her drink.
"Not turning into a child. I am not turning into a child." Jackie said out loud and mostly to herself. Funny part was she was repeating it over and over.
Few chuckles came from Holly and Heather. The teen boys just merely smiled at her words.
"Holly, how young do you think she'll get?" Heather asked looking little worried. 'Little kid' was a lose term to her anyway.
"Don't know sis. Older then a toddler I should think." Holly said looking at Jackie.
To convince herself more this was all an illusion or drug induce Jackie closed her eyes and kept denying what was happening to her.
"Jackie! Snap out of it. This is no trick." Holly said already tired of her rambles.
Jackie opened her eyes and saw she really was getting smaller as her body was growing younger.
"Good news you're not going back to diapers at the moment. I figure you'll be around six at best. " Holly explained as Jackie's body was losing her teenhood.
Jackie's breasts were shrinking down to nothing and only her nipples remained. Her legs were already off the floor as they got younger and appeared shrink into her body.
"Man! Jackie. I had forgotten how many freckles you had as a kid. You look nearly tan with them popping up all over your face." Holly said watching them fade in.
The rest of the group now stood up to watch Jackie go even further into her regression. It was still something to see despite they seen it at least once before.
Jackie lifted her legs to her body and held tightly to her shirt now that it was huge on her small _frame_. Finally after losing a few more inches in height, it stopped.
"I say around six or so. Don't you think Terry?" Holly asked him.
"Pretty close to that age. She looks about the same size as my younger sister." Terry answered not taking his eyes off of Jackie.
"Guys. What am I going to wear?" Jackie said and then was taken back by her own voice. Much higher pitch then she thought it should be.
Jackie was clutching her shirt for all its worth. Her skirt and panties were directly under her legs hidden from view by her shirt. Jackie had pulled the shirt over her legs to hide herself and her clothing.
"Well I guess you have to wear one of Heather's old clothing. I think only a shirt will work over that skinny little body." Holly said looking her over.
"All guys out of the room now! There is a little lady in here that needs some privacy." Holly barked at them.
Terry and Michael jumped up from their seats and left toward the living room. Heather followed right after them then walked past them. She came back into the kitchen carrying the smallest shirt she could find on short notice. Terry and Michael amused themselves by talking over how shock Jackie had looked during the change.
"Here she is." Holly said with a 6 year-old Jackie at her side only wearing a slightly large t-shirt.
Jackie was still getting used to the size of everything and her decreased height to speak just yet.
"Skin and bones now isn't she." Terry commented.
"Don't know Terry, in a few years she could date your younger brother." Michael said joking to Terry.
"Make them stop teasing me." Jackie pretended to whine to Holly.
"Enough guys." Holly said still grinning at their comments.
"Can I hold you?" Heather asked coming around the corner.
"Heather. I am sure that Jackie does not want to be treated like a child." Holly said.
"It's ok. I'll feel better if one of you would sit beside me on the sofa. " Jackie said then walked over to the sofa to wait. Holly spotted her problem soon after. If Jackie were to climb onto the sofa her shirt would rise up just enough to moon everyone in the room.
"Here I'll help you up." Holly said lifting her up then sitting next to her. Holly grabbed the last blanket on the floor and tossed it across Jackie's small lap so it could hide her better then the shirt could. "I wonder if Alice in Wonderland felt like this. Strange seeing all of you tower over me." Jackie said looking around again.
"I wonder if Alice in Wonderland felt like this. Strange seeing all of you tower over me." Jackie said looking around again.
"So now you believe us?" Holly said with sarcasm.
"Yeah." Jackie said rolling her eyes a bit.
"I do have a few questions to ask you." Jackie piping up her voice to sound important.
"Ask away. I'm sure the boys won't mind fixing us some lunch while we answer your questions." Holly said looking at them.
Terry gave Michael a quick light punch on the arm and nodded for him to join him in the kitchen. It will be a simple lunch at best. It was going to be a very late lunch. Terry having more experience then Michael managed to cook up some grill cheesed sandwiches.
Jackie was almost as bad as a real child asking question after question. Wasn't until they told the entire story twice did she stopped.
Terry and Michael returned in time to hear her last question.
"So you were a baby from yesterday til today?" Jackie asked then looking disappointed she missed it.
"Yeah. Me and Terry were while Heather babysat us. In the end it was really scary because the marble broke."
"Good thing you didn't wish to be a baby yourself. We are all out of diapers." Heather added in. Jackie shallow then agreed with Heather.
"Still having a hard time believing all this is possible. Guess Halloween will have a whole new meaning this year." Jackie said smiling.
"Guess so, but that is nearly a year away. Before that the nearest Holiday is July fourth." Holly said thinking about swimming and fireworks.
"Well I had enough and looking up at you all is killing my neck. It is starting to ache now." Jackie said holding the blanket to her waist and getting up to stand.
"Don't say it. Come on Michael." Terry said then looked at Michael then walked toward the kitchen. Heather had already carried Jackie clothes into the living room.
"I'll give you til the count of ten before I make the wish for Jackie." Terry said as they left.
Heather was a little dispointed to see Jackie aged back. She had really taken a love toward babysitting. Jackie was glad to return back to her teen body along with its features.
"This is intense trip to go on." Jackie said when she aged all the way back.
Only thing Holly and Heather saw was Jackie face getting older. With a blanket wrapped around her neck and covering her body only her face and height showed she was getting older. After Holly shouted the all clear the boys came back carrying parts of the marble hourglass. Michael gave one piece to Heather then next to Jackie. Terry kept one piece to himself and gave the other to Holly.
After Holly shouted the all clear the boys came back carrying parts to marble hourglass. Micheal gave one piece to Heather then next to Jackie. Terry kept one piece to himself and gave the other to Holly.
"Michael I think you're a fool for giving your piece to me." Jackie said then smiled at him.
"Your welcome." Michael said knowing this was Jackie's way of thanking him.
"Kinda cheesy isn't it? Like a group of heroes with their power rings." Jackie said looking at her part. Jackie had the lower half of hourglass in her hand. This one showed the sand in the craving.
Yeah, but we are not out to save the world or anything." Holly said almost laughing.
"Let's just think of it as friendships can be timeless." Terry said smiling at his smart comment.
"Good one." Michael said and wishing he thought of it.
"Real question is what do we do now. Me and Heather had plenty of experience with the hourglass. I am sure none of you are too eager to do anything now." Holly said looking at the group.
"I agree to that." Both Terry and Michael said.
"Come on, Holly. We could have a blast with this." Jackie said holding up her piece.
"Later Jackie. I just escaped from reliving my childhood again. So unless you want to be babysat by Heather I suggest you drop it now. " Holly said little bit too sternly.
"OK." Jackie said then exhaling a long breath.
"Shame they don't work separately from each other." Heather said flipping her part of the hourglass in her fingers.
"Part of the reason I'm splitting them up. Less risk to all of us." Holly said to explain on why she gave them away as gifts.
"Good idea." Terry and Michael almost said in unison.
"I think its time for everyone to go home now. I had enough excitement." Holly said looking at the group with pleading eyes.
Jackie was the first to leave. She had a bit of guilt for pushing her friend in trying the hourglass some more. Terry and Michael left next after they said their personal goodbyes to their girlfriends.
"I tell you one thing sis. I really was scared for all of us." Holly said as she went back to her room. Holly shut and locked the door behind her to sleep for the most part. When she wasn't sleeping she spent most of time laying bed and going over the near tragedy in her mind.
Heather, having nothing better to do, cleaned up the house and put everything back to where it was suppose to be. She had hoped she get more chances to babysat or at least become her teenage self again soon. Heather had fallen head over heals for Michael and kissing only enforce her feelings for him.
Heather thought Holly had forgotten about the hourglass. It seemed like ages now since they used it last. Holly herself did want to forget about it, but with Jackie bringing it up and Terry saying he was ready for anything now; this made it hard to just simply forget.
To explain her strange behavior to her mother Holly said she had a near miss in the car over their vacation time. Mrs Field understood after that. A near accident could spook just about anyone. Mrs Field offered to talk about it, but Holly said everything was fine.
Heather attempts to get her mother to bend the rule on dating failed. Heather would only be allowed if her sister was with her at all times. Heather after all was still very young in Mrs Field's mind. Their mother was stuck to the idea that the other sister would kept the other one in line.
Heather had tired of her normal life of school, friends, and special pen pal. Heather stopped in front of Holly's bedroom before she had gone to bed and knocked on the open door softly.
"Holly?" Heather asked not sure if this was the best time to bug her.
"Yeah, sis." Holly said as she tossed her magazine to the dresser.
"When are we going to have some fun again?" Heather asked as she held her part of the marble hourglass in her hands.
"Guess there's no escaping it now." Holly said giving her small china cabinet a quick glance. In the unlocked china cabinet there was Holly's piece which was the counter part to Terry's piece of the hourglass.
"Terry's Parents are heading out of town for while. Terry invited all of us to a pool party the same weekend. Terry's brother and sister will be there too since all of them are still in school." Holly said with a weak smile.
"That means we're going to use it again?" Heather asked still unsure.
"Yes." Holly said with more strength her voice then before.
"Megan?" Heather asked in a whisper.
"Yes." Holly answered and happy to see the joy in her little sister's face.
Once again the group gathered together and this time it was at Terry's house they met. His house was far larger then Holly's and Heather's own home. Being that Terry's family was much larger then most. Terry's only siblings that were still living at home were his younger brother Todd who was no older then 8 years-old and their sister Jenny who had just turned 5 years-old less then a month ago.
Both siblings looked up to their older brother and often fought over which one got to play with him. Since Holly had been coming over it was Jenny who gave up her brother to play with Holly instead. Jenny was more of a tom boy then being a normal little girl, having nothing but brothers as siblings. Jenny had become tough as any boy her age.
If Holly had been more alert to her friend's looks and been more aware she would have notice something was being planned. Heather had taken the place as the leader of the pack while Holly was fixing herself a drink.
Already Heather was older then her former self. She had changed as soon they arrived and their pieces were added. Heather had packed her bag and her sister's before they came. If Holly had got over her fear of the hourglass she would notice that only one bathing suit was packed and Heather was wearing it.
Wasn't until Terry asked her over to the table that she approached the small assemble hourglass.
"We all know you didn't what to use this hourglass again, but everyone here feels that we should. You have to get over your fear of it and what might happen to us." Terry said as they walk up to the table.
"We all agreed sis. No matter what age we might be stuck at we don't blame you." Heather said as sister came in ear shot.
It was Terry made his request first to the hourglass.
Holly was little shock to hear her name and her new age.
"I wish Holly was 5 years-old." Terry said without thinking about it.
"Why?" Holly asked as her body retreated back to be 15 years-old.
"You should be a child again and forgot your worries about the hourglass." Terry said then looked from her to Heather.
"Don't worry sis. I'll take care of you and the hourglass. I've seen it worry you so much I think it is time for a vacation from it. I'll keep the parts that are ours in my room til your ready." Heather said tapping her fingers on their pieces.
Holly felt if a weight had been lifted off of her shoulders. She was happy again inside as she regressed further back.
She was free from her responsibility from the hourglass completely for little while at least. Soon enough her clothes were hanging off of her very young teen body. Soon after she was still de-aging Heather stepped forward and put her old clothes in a gym bag she used.
Holly was now only dressed in a large t-shirt that threatened to slip down her body. Terry picked her up and put her on his hip. Holly was now 5 years-old and between being skinny and bone all over to being chubby with baby fat.
After a knock on the door that was Terry's little sister's room, a child voice answered with come in.
"Jenny, this is Cindy one of Holly's cousins. Holly couldn't make today so Cindy is taking her place. Do you think you have an extra bathing suit she can wear?" Terry asked very politely.
"I think so." Jenny replied then going to her small closet.
"Come down when you're ready." Terry sitting Holly on her feet and leaving her to Jenny's attention.
"Try this one." Jenny said taking an old bathing suit from her closet and handing it Holly.
For a second Holly almost walked toward the bathroom to change. It was silly to be shy around Jenny. Even if Jenny knew who she was, Holly was after all just 5 years-old in body.
Flipping the shirt over her head first. Holly put on the bathing suit with no trouble at all. Suit was a bit old, but still good. Once it was in the water Holly knew it would be better
Holly looked cute in her pink and purple bathing suit. She then wondered what the rest of gang where going to be like. Not wanting to waste another second thinking about it, she and Jenny raced down the stairs.
Michael had stayed his original age and so had Terry. It was only Jackie that changed her age. Jackie had become an 8 or 9 year old girl at best. She was wearing an old Little Mermaid costume that was made for girls with nothing to show. If Jackie hadn't dump Nicholas only days before, Holly was for sure she would have kept her older age.
Heather and Michael were having too much fun to notice that Holly had return. Terry and his younger brother Todd were having a contest on who could hold their breath the longest under water.
As soon as Holly and Jenny came down, it was Terry that insisted they both must wear inner tubes on their arms. Holly was decent swimmer even at the age of five, but Jenny was still learning. Wanting to set a good example for Jenny to go by Holly agreed to wear them.
Soon everyone was enjoying the many pool games they normally played on hot days. Once Heather and Jackie could keep a more watchful eye on Holly, she was allowed to remove her tubes from her arms. As long both little girls stayed in the shallow end they were allowed to play freely in just their bathing suits.
Holly did manage to forget about life and her worries for a while. Holly had fun teaching Jenny how to swim. On the deeper end Jackie and Todd were having lap races and Terry prepared lunch. Heather and Michael were watching all this from sides of pool in the warm water.
"Everyone out! Lunchtime." Terry said as he carried the last of the drinks out.
Simple lunch of cold cuts and kool-aid was made for everyone. Holly felt very tired and hungry now. Being so small required her to burn more energy then she thought.
"After lunch you all go wash up." Terry said only to the children of the group, including Holly of course.
To Holly's dislike she had to shower with Todd for brief moment. She and Jenny had already began stripping off their bathing suits when Holly noticed they were not alone. Todd was in the water and Jenny was already climbing in. Holly thought about waiting then Jenny told her to come.
Todd paid no attention to the girls as he washed. Having a little sister, there was nothing to see on the newcomer. He got out when he noticed it was getting crowded. Holly like any person in the world took a quick peak at Todd. He was a lot like his brother with the same features and only lacked the maturity of age.
It was the openness of nudity Holly found most unsettling. She and Jenny had the same modesty now about being nude. Neither cared that much as they changed into some night clothes. Once again Jenny loaned a few clothes to Holly to wear.
More then Jenny and the playing, Holly loved that everything in Jenny's room and bathroom was her size now. Jenny's half bath didn't have any shower, but it did have booster seat to the toilet.
Holly tried to hang with her old friends, but found she was being treated like a small child. After Terry told her that he'll promise to make it up to her later, Holly returned to the living room and watched cartoons with Jenny.
Holly was little envious of Heather at that moment. Here she was stuck to watching cartoons and her younger sister was hanging with her friends.
Jackie and Toddy came in next to join them as they watched some cartoon movie. Next came Michael with Heather and the Terry came in last.
Terry soon had his hands full as both Jenny and Holly climbed up on his lap to watch TV. Jackie and Todd only sat next to each other sharing a bowel of popcorn. Jackie had just finished her shower. Jackie had waited til everyone else was done before she took her shower.
Michael and Heather were cuddling up to each other on the couch while they watched the movie.
Holly had fallen asleep and was waken by an adult Jackie sometime later.
"Vacation over with, squirt" Jackie said forcing Holly up.
The usual grunts of 5 year-old not wanting to wake up were heard as Jackie help her up.
Before Holly caught on to what was going on, her shirt was stripped off and her old one was pulled over her head.
"Come on sis." Heather said now in front of her with bag at her side.
"Time to get dressed and change back." Heather explained.
"Where is everyone?" Holly asked sleepy while she slipped off her childish underwear.
"Terry is putting the kids to bed and Michael left a while back to walk home." Heather explained as she helped her sister get dress in her old clothing.
"What time is it?" Holly asked as she started to age back. Jackie was in the other room and had made her wish for Holly.
"Nearly 11:30 now." Heather said.
"What!" Holly asked now more awake.
"Yeah. We are late and mom called." Heather said as Holly reached her height and age.
"What did you say?" Holly asked.
"Well, she thought I was you. I told her that we all fell asleep while babysitting." Heather explained.
"OK. Go wait in the car and I'll be right out after I say goodbye to Terry" Holly said as her teen body came back.
After readjusting her clothes Holly said her goodbye with a long kiss to Terry.
Hourglass 2nd Chapter
Revised by StevenB
The drive home was a fast and quiet one.
This time both girls took the blame from their mother for coming home so late. Both girls were left off the hook with a warning only after Heather said she was helping baby-sit and forgot about the time.
Holly was too tired to care about what had happen to her part of hourglass when she went to bed. Heather of course had both parts in her gym bag.
It wasn't til that weekend did the group met again. Once again it was at Terry's house because he had to stay home and watch his little sister and brother.
Michael didn't come this time and only Heather, Holly, and Jackie came.
"Tomorrow is when your parents are going to be home again? " Holly asked Terry.
"Yeah, sometime in the late afternoon if we are lucky." Terry answered back with a smile. This meant he had some free time to spend with Holly.
None of the group had a chance to use the hourglass yet, because Terry's brother and sister were always around. Using the hourglass require some privacy, which wasn't until the kids went upstairs to change. Terry suggested the idea they should go for a swim. Of course he had the keys to unlock the pool area.
"Good thing you wore baggy clothes today sis or those kids would have noticed you becoming much older." Holly said to Heather as she put the last two parts together.
No one noticed a small figure of a child that slipped into a closet that was in the hallway in view of the kitchen table and teens.
"I know what I want." Heather said and touching the hourglass. As causal as making an order Heather wished to be teenager again.
The Little eyes that were in the closet widened at what they saw, a young teen becoming almost an adult.
"Well I think I'll go with what Heather did. Wouldn't mind being little older for one afternoon." Jackie said looking at the girl that was her height and almost her built.
Jackie whisper her request then hurried into the bathroom. Judging from her changes they saw she was getting older.
"Well I have no interest in changing my age today." Holly said then taking Terry's arm and holding him.
"Can't change today even I wanted to." Terry said look at Holly then the stairs. Meaning he had to be Terry so his siblings didn't think they left him in the care of his friends. "We better go change into our swim suits. The kids will be out and ready any minute now." Terry mentioned. All of them had forgotten about the hourglass and left it assembled on the table. Being the hourglass was so small it was easy to forget its power and danger of leaving it just laying about.
Jackie came back first to the kitchen and saw that the hourglass was gone. She assumed it was with Terry and the others and she went on out to wait at the gate.
Holly and Terry were too busy chatting with the kids to notice it was gone.
Everyone noticed that Jackie was wearing a string bikini that was lightly tied at the sides. The adult version of Jackie was more mature and taller then they thought she'd be.
A quick question from Todd asked who was she and was asked again when all of them saw her.
"That's Jackie's older sister. Her name is Diane." Terry lied quickly then thought he could came up with a better lie then that.
Todd seemed in awe at Jackie's older body and was almost caught staring at her. Only an hour passed before one of Todd's friend from right next door came over. Todd's friend invited him to come over and try out his new Playstation 2 game. With Terry's Permission Todd left to go over to the neighbor's house. Todd was somewhat reluctant to go, but did anyway.
Jackie didn't spend anytime in the pool but prefer to sunbath instead.
Only a few minutes after they left that Holly notice something was wrong. Her own swimsuit was now too big for her.
"OK. Whose idea of a joke is this?" Holly asked as she noticed the years slipping away.
Terry looked at Jackie and Jackie then looked over at Heather. No one had the hourglass in plain slight.
"Hey!" Terry said now noticing his own swimming shorts were slipping.
In a panic both Terry and Holly scramble out of the pool. Heather got out herself to help her sister.
"Jackie! Are you doing this?" Heather asked her.
Jackie was now too concerned for her own body to answer right away. Her body was getting younger as well.
"Hourglass" Jackie called out then looking up at the house.
Heather was the only one not affected and was unhindered by trying to keep her clothes in the right place yet. She ran up the stairs past the gate into the kitchen. Desperately she looked for the hourglass. After she confirmed it wasn't on the table or the counter tops she searched all the bags everyone had bought out.
"Come on. Change us back." Jackie said as she was dwindling down past her normal teenage age. Holly and Terry were no older then 10 years-old now and both wrapped in beach towels.
"Can't find it anywhere" Heather said still looking around in a panic.
"Oh no!" Jackie said looking at Heather face.
Heather looked down at her body and saw that her swimsuit was a size too big for her. She was returning back to her younger age.
"The boys." Terry said looking upstairs.
"They must have it." Terry said finishing his sentence.
Entire group went up the steps with the current oldest kids leading the way.
Jackie and Heather were first into the room, excepting to find the boys in there with the hourglass. Between them they saw that the room was empty.
Holly and Terry were only toddlers now and had a hard time keeping up with the large towels around their bodies.
Jackie was older than 10 year-old and Heather was becoming 7 years-old again.
"Jenny!" Terry said now remembering that she disappeared just before they all got younger.
They found Jenny in her own room. She was digging through her closet for baby clothes.
"Jenny, where is it?" Jackie asked quickly.
Jenny only answered back with giggles at the site of them.
"Come on Jenny. You can't turn all of us into babies." Toddler Heather pleaded. Terry and Holly were left in the doorway now too young to even walk.
"Wanna play house." Jenny said in response.
"Jenny, tell me where it is!" Jackie yelled with all the fury a 5 year-old could say. Jenny's face only went into a stubborn _expression_.
Jenny face only went into a stubborn _expression_.
Before losing her ability to speak Heather stepped forward and asked in a whisper.
"Can I play too? Be a mommy." Heather asked politely just before she became too young to stand.
"Ok." Jenny said in answer to the toddler's question. Jenny didn't revel where she kept the marble hourglass until Jackie was unable to stand anymore.
She had hidden it in her dresser along with her shirts.
"No tricks." Jenny said as she laid her hand on the hourglass.
"I wish Heather was my age." Jenny said simply.
Heather clutch tightly to her oversize swimsuit as she grew back to a child.
Jenny then took two of pieces of the hourglass and slipped them into her pocket. Heather had the idea of taking them from Jenny but there was the chance they might be broken. Deciding it would be best to play along; Heather walked over to the closet and grabbed one of Jenny's shirts.
Not wanting to startle the little girl, Heather asked if she could wear some of her clothes as she pointed at the dresser.
"Ok." Jenny said then going out of room.
"I'll change you back when I get a chance." Heather said as she put on the children's clothing. She was looking at all the babies who were looking concerned. Heather could only guess that they there were all about 6 months-old or so. She wasn't really sure how old they were.
Jenny came back with diapers and started to diaper Terry.
"Where you get these?" Heather asked as she took two from Jenny.
"Under the sink. There are really for my nieces." Jenny said proudly.
Heather diapered Jackie and Holly while Jenny was dressing her bother. All having no choice about it went along with the game for now. Heather had already worked out a plan in how to get rest of the hourglass. She suggested to Jenny they should wear more adult clothes.
Heather picked out a pair of skirts and plain looking t-shirts that were part of a dress outfit. Soon after Jenny was changing, Heather pulled the last parts of the hourglass and placed them in the open dresser.
Holly and Jackie looked pleadingly at her. "Not just yet. I really want to baby-sit first and Jenny might notice." Heather whispered to the pair.
"Not just yet. I really want to babysit first and Jenny might notice." Heather whispered to the pair.
The two girls, being too small to carry the babies very far, stayed in Jenny's room. Since Heather had experience with taking care of babies, she spent the next hour showing Jenny how to take care of them. She stressed to Jenny to be very careful.
Heather was getting bored of being 5 years-old after an hour of house was played. While Jenny was busy undressing and dressing Holly again in different dresses, Heather reached in the dresser and made her wish in a whisper. Heather then took one of parts of marble hourglass and left the room saying she had to go to the bathroom.
Jenny didn't notice that Heather was already two years older.
Heather came back soon after. She was an adult now and not a teen like Holly thought she'd be.
It only took Jenny a second to figure out who it was. The Hair and face were known to her.
"Hey!" The 5 year-old _object_ed to Heather's change of age. Jenny jumped up and ran over to the dresser. She reached in and made a quick wish for Heather to be a baby.
Then Jenny look at her discarded shorts then back inside the drawer. Drawer was empty and shorts had been empty as well. Pockets on the shorts were pulled out.
Nothing happen as Heather walked across the room dressed in her sister's shirt and shorts that were tightly fitting. Clothing was little too tight for Heather's comfort.
Jenny looked into the dresser and saw that one of the parts was missing.
"I'll take those back." Heather said in much deeper tone of voice then she expected. It was a voice of full grown woman.
Heather reached in and easily snatched the parts of the hourglass back.
The babies in the room looked excited and relieved that the secret was still safe. None were worried about being stuck since Michael and Heather still would have a chance to fix it.
"No." Jenny cried almost tearing up because her fun was looking like it was coming to an end.
"Don't cry, Jenny. I'm not going to changed them back just yet." Heather said looking down at them.
"I'm going to give you 15 more minutes then I have to change them back before someone discovers our secret." Heather said bending down to Jenny's eye level.
Jenny was thinking fast now on what she hadn't done yet with the babies. She then asked if they could give them a bath. Only Jackie and Terry looked like they rejected the idea. Holly didn't care because she knew that soon she'd be a teen again.
"OK, but only for a few minutes. " Heather said picking up Terry and Jackie in each of her arms. Each baby was being carried under the armpits. Jenny tried to carry Holly but found she was too heavy to pick up and hold for long. Instead she helped Holly by lifting her body up and carrying her a few feet then set her down to crawl again.
For Heather this was a new experience. Before she only took care of toddlers. The difference in looks alone made it a new adventure. All of them could sit up but their bodies along with their heads were something new for her to see. Larger heads and less hair and bodies much smaller yet cover even more by baby fat. As Jenny pointed out they were small and cute.
Not wanting to just watch Jenny help bath the babies with Heather, Terry soon enjoyed the experience, but Jackie still looked like she didn't.
"Time is up kiddo; go grab the bags we bought." Heather said looking at the clock by the door.
"OK." Came from Jenny which sound like she was little sad. Jenny obeyed and carried each bag up one at a time. Jackie's bag of clothes was left in Jenny's room and Holly's & Heather's bags were left by the door to the bathroom.
"Since Jackie here is making the most noise we better turn her back first." Heather said lifting her out and wrapping a towel around her entire body with ease.
Heather carried Jackie to Jenny's room and laid her down on the bed. Then she returned to the bathroom to put Terry in his own room on his bed in the same way.
Heather carried Jackie to Jenny's room and laid her down on the bed. Then return to the bathroom to put Terry in his own room on his bed in the same way.
"Jenny, I would go hide downstairs until Terry is back to normal. Jackie might spank you if she sees you." Heather warned her as she lifted Holly out of the tub.
The main reason Heather told her this was to get her out of the room.
"You're such a cutie pie this way." Heather said laying Holly on her breast. For Holly just was like laying on a strange warm pillow.
Heather let out a deep breath the laid Holly on the bathroom counter. Heather took the pieces of marble out of her pocket and assembled them. Heather made her request for each person then stop at herself.
"I'll change back once everyone is back to normal." Heather replied to Holly who had a puzzled face on why she stopped.
Heather only wished she could see the others as they were getting older, with Jackie and Terry growing at an amazing rate. First standing up to see if they could then moving about with more control as they got older and stronger. Once they each had slid off the bed they would be getting dressed when they were old enough to grab their clothes.
"Weren't worry were you?" Heather asked her once she was on her feet.
"Nah." Holly answered back with a cute grin.
The last of Holly's clothes were given to her when she finally reached an age where they stayed on her without slipping. It was Jackie who returned first to the age of 15 years-old and still going. After Jackie came Terry out of his room now fully dress.
"Starting to get easier each time we change." Terry said holding his stomach where the warmness was just starting to fade away.
"Where is Jenny?" Jackie asked not seeing her around.
"Hiding at the moment from you." Heather grinned taking her piece of the marble hourglass just in case Jackie got the idea for revenge.
"Put aside any ideas of revenge on her for now. She knows about the hourglass. We better have a serious talk to her." Terry said and got an agreeing nod from Holly.
After a small chat at the dinner table with the entire group and Jenny at the head chair, she said she would keep it their secret, but forgot her promise soon after.
Getting a 5 year-old to keep a secret was impossible in Jenny's case. Jenny did manage to keep the story to herself until Terry's parents came home. She told the whole story to her mother and how she helped baby-sit them as babies over dinner that night.
Terry only smiled at her words and grin along with his mother and father at the dinner table.
"Why didn't your brother see any of this?" Jenny's mother asked with a amusing look.
"Because I said he was over at friend's house." Jenny said looking mad that she wasn't being taken seriously.
"Oh ok. Sounds like you had a lot fun while we were away." Jenny's mother said not wanting to add more fuel to her anger.
Later Terry heard her say to their dad that Jenny has quite the imagination.
Terry called Holly with the news and Holly relay it to her sister and Jackie.
"Another close call." Holly said after she got done informing her sister.
"By the way did you like being an adult?" Holly asked Heather.
"It was ok. My body was just little different that's all. " Heather answered back.
"Hey, what are we going to do this weekend?" Heather asked eager to use the hourglass.
"Well, me and Terry were discussing about going camping up by the lake. Most of the time all we ever do is swim." Holly said smiling.
"Going with just Terry?" Heather asked.
"We thought about it then decided to invite the whole group out. We just have to pitch a few more tents then we can all have some fun." Holly glancing at her china cabinet.
It took much convincing to allow Heather to go on the trip. The main reason was because she was the youngest in the group that was going. Heather even had some thoughts about using the hourglass on her mother. Of course she didn't dare to use against their parents because of her promise and the fact she didn't have all the pieces with her.
Packing for this trip was the hardest part. Heather had to pretend to pack plenty of her clothes and then hide some of her older sister's clothes in her bags. The group met in the evening on Friday and left using two cars to transport everything. Holly's and Terry's cars were used to transport everyone. Most of the bags were in Terry's car since Heather and Holly were in the other car.
For what seem like a long drive they finally arrived at the gate. They managed to get two lots right beside each other. Site A area was normally vacant due to the fact it had little power and water around. This weekend was no different. There was barely anyone camping in that area. Their lots were a short walk through the woods to the lake.
Four tents were setup for everyone. Holly and Terry were planning on sharing one, while Michael and Jackie had tents of their own on the other lot. Holly's tent, much smaller then the rest, was setup on Holly's side. The teens did have some fun setting up everything. Once everything was done they met in largest tent, which was Terry's and Holly's. Over lunch, which was cold cuts sandwiches, they discussed what they should do.
"Let's go swimming." Terry said offering his idea.
"But first we got decided if anyone wants to change their age first."
"Wouldn't mind giving it a go." Michael said then saw surprised _expression_s on everyone's face.
"That's right, you never tried it." Heather said hiding a grin. Michael had been under the power of hourglass twice, but it was Heather's doing on that part.
Not wanting to go too far back in age, Michael had decided way ahead of time to be Heather's age.
"I wish I was 12 years-old again." Michael said touching the assembled hourglass on the floor of the tent.
Heather was torn between mix feelings of joy and disappointment. On one hand Michael was her age now, but if she used the hourglass now he'll be the child and she would be the adult.
Michael's strong build disappeared to a skinny little kid's _frame_. He was hardly any taller then Heather now. The two day old beard on his face was gone as his face changed into young smooth teen's face.
"I'll pass this time sis." Heather said looking at the cute Michael.
"That leaves you Jackie and us." Holly said looking at Jackie then looking at Terry.
Jackie only grinned as she touched the hourglass.
"I wish to be an adult." Jackie said with a strange mischievous tone. All of them could guess she was planning to go prowling for a new boyfriend.
Jackie's young teen face matured into a woman's face as her body grew. Jackie was forced to take off her bra from the outside of her shirt. Her breasts were growing and growing causing her pain as they forced themselves against the bra now too small for Jackie. Last of these changes was her hair and limbs growing long and slender.
"I think we should try that too, Jackie." Holly said looking at Terry.
"Michael, here take this small bag with you. I packed a few clothes of different sizes from my Brothers." Terry said handing a small backpack to Michael.
Getting the hint they wanted some privacy while they changed in age, Michael left to his tent with Heather close behind him and Jackie left to change into something more comfortable.
"Come on Heather. Give me some privacy why I change." Michael said pleading to her as she refuse to leave him be.
"Getting shy on me?" Heather said in low tone looking at his body.
"Kinda of." Michael said going red.
"Come on guys we'll meet you down at the lake." Holly's voice came from her side of lot. Holly was speaking toward Heather's tent then to the other tents. She thought everyone was in their own little tents changing.
Once they heard Jackie and Terry with Holly by his side leave, the young teens knew they were safe to talk again. Being caught in the same tent, there was a chance they could get in trouble.
"They are gone." Heather whispered once she saw no one around.
Michael had already taken this chance to change shirts.
"Look kinda funny without any hair or muscles." Heather said seeing his shirt off.
"Got some left." Michael said then flexing a small bicep on his arm.
"Mine are bigger then yours" said Heather taking off her own shirt and showing her small biceps.
Michael found himself staring at her for a second.
"You know, Mikey. We could have some fun before we go swimming." Heather said unhooking her bra.
Michael was about to say they shouldn't, but was stopped with Heather kissing him. Michael gave in and went along.
Before Heather could regret her actions, she willingly let Michael strip her of her clothes and she did the same to Michael's clothing.
Even through he was an only a boy, he still got a hard on as Heather saw.
After a few minutes both laid on the other side of the open sleeping bag exhausted and naked. The half where they were on was folded over.
"Damn." Michael said realizing what he had done. Still laying on his back with a guilty face.
"What's wrong?" Heather asked throwing on her old shirt.
"We shouldn't have done it. Lord, what was I thinking?" Michael said gathering up his clothes and tossing them in garage bag they were using to put dirty clothes in.
"Did I do something wrong?" Heather asked looking if she had insulted him.
"No. It's just that I didn't plan on this happening." Michael said putting on some clothes from the bag Terry gave him.
Hourglass 2nd Chapter
Revised by StevenB
"I wanted that to happen." Heather said rolling up the dirty sleeping bag and putting it in the clothes' bag. A blood stain in the center was reason why she was putting it away.
Michael only looked at her with a puzzled look.
"That feeling was incredible and then it felt like my mind was going to explode." Heather explained.
"Didn't you enjoy it?" Heather asked still going red in the face.
"Yeah, but we both barely have any hair down there and in reality you're too young." Michael said and hoping not to upset her.
"Not too young." Heather said tearing up and getting up.
Before Michael could say he was sorry, she left the tent only dressed in her shirt. Following her she went straight to her tent.
Michael was fully dressed now standing outside her tent apologizing over and over. Heather did unzip the doorway and walked right past him carrying some new clothes and a towel. She slipped on some shorts along with her shirt and put some flip flops.
"If anyone asks I'll be in the showers." Heather said in an angry tone and eyes going slightly red.
Michael thought about chasing after her, but decided to wash up himself. Michael only hoped she would forgive him in time.
Since no one else was in the showers, Heather allowed herself to cry some tears with a few audible cries. She wanted to be held and Michael to say I love you, but instead heard she was too young. True it was awkward and somewhat clumsy, but it was a great experience; Heather thought as she washed her body of last of sweat. More then the comments he made to her, she hated the fact she gave up her virginity to him.
'Didn't he realize that it meant something to me?' Heather said in low whisper as she was thinking to herself. She thought revenge but then thinking it over it was immature to take any on Michael, it only would prove his point in the end that she was too young.
After Michael's own shower he listened for second and stared up at the fog glass windows of the showers stall from the outside. Still sounds of water hitting the floor were heard. Still in there crying her eyes out he thought. Way to go Michael he berated himself.
Having nothing better do, Michael went on down to the lake. Only a short half hour passed since the others left. Michael didn't think for second the others were going to hang around him so he amused himself by swimming laps back and forth from an anchor raft to the shore.
Heather came out fully dress in new clothes. Part of her wanted to crawl into a hole and never come out. She even went as far in using the hourglass. She never did it before, but she did make herself younger hoping to forget. Even as she was aging downward she felt the same. Barely 5 years-old with her clothes hanging off of her, she felt as terrible as before. More now since her feelings were slightly more out of control then before.
'Younger' she thought, then wished it aloud.
Now her shirt collar pooled around her lap and waist. The feelings were worse then ever. Emotions were still in control.
"Make me so young I forget everything." the 2 year-old said to the hourglass.
Heather crawled the best she could over to Holly's sleeping bag leaving the marble hourglass on the floor. Soon she became too weak to even crawl. Then she was unable to even roll over. Her head was too heavy now for her to lift up on her own. Her vision went blurry and in a panic she cried out. Only a faint crying of a very young baby was heard. Soon she blacked out going into a deep sleep.
Holly and Terry were first to get back to the camp site. Jackie and Michael were right behind them. Holly was concerned her sister didn't show up at the lake and wondered why. Michael only said he saw her last getting a shower.
It was Terry that found Heather first.
"Holly!" Terry said looking scared and going white.
Holly rushed over to the tent and looked in. A baby girl hardly older then a newborn was sleeping on her sleeping bag. The child's head was turned sideways and gently small breaths were coming and going.
"Heather" Holly whispered not to disturb her too much.
Holly entered the tent slowly and bumped the hourglass on the floor.
"Oh Heather." Holly said looking down.
Michael followed Jackie into the tent with Terry by Jackie's side.
"She is so tiny." Jackie said with a shock _expression_.
"Is she alright?" Michael asked looking fearful.
"Don't' know. I never used it to become this young." Holly answered while bending down.
"Heather." Holly said as she gently shook the tiny infant.
Sounds of crying came next in which everyone in the tent jumped.
"Age her back a little." Jackie said while bending down and reassembling the hourglass.
Holly walked back and made her wish.
"I wish Heather was 2 years-old." Holly said not taking her eyes off of the small infant.
Group stare in silence as Heather grew from a tiny infant to a larger baby. Holly let a deep breath as more baby fat filled in. Heather stopped crying by now and only looked curiously around.
Heather became amazed at seeing her hands grow then stood up once she felt her strength return.
"Heather are you ok?" Holly said smiling.
"Mommy" Heather said seeing Holly then totting over to her. Holly caught her in her arms.
"No Heather. I am your sister. Holly." Holly said looking at her eyes, an innocent and vague like _expression_ was all that was seen in them.
"No, Mommy." Heather said refusing to believe her.
"How old are you?" Holly asked her.
"Two." Heather said proudly.
"It warped her mind." Jackie said looking at the hourglass.
"Heather, listen to me. Do you remember anything about being grown up?" Holly asked in a pleading voice.
"Yeah, I am big girl." Heather said with a toddler's smile.
"That's right. Now how old were you?" Holly asked in hopes there were getting somewhere.
"Two, mommy." Heather answered thinking this was a silly game.
"Holly, maybe you should change back to your teen self. You're still in an adult body." Terry said offering his idea.
"Good idea." Holly said then walked over to the hourglass.
"I wish I was back to normal." Holly said.
Heather's eyes lit up when she saw her change.
"You look funny mommy." Heather said seeing her change into a teen.
"Not mommy, come over here and make a wish on the hourglass yourself." Holly said.
"Daddy! Make her stop." Heather said after she ran over to hide behind Terry's leg. Heather didn't like this game anymore.
Holly walked over to pick her up, but Heather refused to let go of his leg.
"Maybe she'll snap out of it and it could be dangerous to force her to grow up so fast." Terry said looking behind his leg at the frightened 2-year old.
"Maybe." Holly said not sure at all if she ever would.
"First thing we got to do squirt is get you dress." Jackie said looking at her. Jackie was hoping her nickname for Heather would snap her out of it. "OK, Aunt Jackie." Heather said stepping out from behind Terry's legs.
"Michael go get the bag I gave you earlier. It should have some toddler clothes as well." Terry said.
Jackie and Terry changed back to their teen bodies while Michael was getting the bag. Jackie dressed Heather quickly and found at least two diapers that could fit her.
"Who is Michael?" Jackie said pointing to Michael, wondering how much her mind had changed the view of people around her.
"My friend." Heather said then looked at him warmly.
The teens talk over Heather for next hour. Little Heather sat in Terry's lap and listened to all the talk, but didn't understand what all the fuss was about.
"Well it's no good aging her. She still has no idea who we really are and I don't think it would matter if we did change her back to her old age the first time." Terry said hoping this would raise Holly's spirits a bit.
"Michael, what did exactly did you do to her or say?" Holly asked turning her anger on him.
"After you guys left we kinda fooled around then I said something like she was too young for me. After that she got upset and went to the showers. I didn't see her again until now, I swear." Michael said hoping the truth would set him free.
"She must have came back here all upset and wanted to prove Michael right. I guess." Jackie said to help Michael's defense.
"We can't be pointing fingers at each other just yet. First let's get her back to normal." Terry said looking at Heather.
"We tried wishing every which way possible. None of them work." Holly said squeezing her little sister's hand a little.
"Michael it was your words that drove her to this. I want her to spend the night with you. Try to make her remember who she was." Holly said in mild tone holding back some of her anger.
Heather was little scared of Holly's tone and gladly went to Michael's side of the tent.
"Spend all night up if you have too. Just snap her out of it." Holly said almost begging.
"I am sorry that this happened, Holly. I'll try my best, but if I can't, you can do the same to me." Michael said still having feelings of guilt nagging at him. At least this would be fair punishment for the earlier crime, he thought quietly to himself.
"I don't blame you completely. Heather had to know she was using the hourglass. So I know it's not entirely your fault. What good would it do to lose you to?" Heather explained as calmly as she could.
"Come on, Michael. I'll help you." Jackie said standing up then lowering her body so not to hit the tent ceiling.
"You can start after dinner. I'll fix something up." Terry said leaving the tent as well. It was a quiet dinner as they sat at the panic table. Little Heather seemed to think she did something bad. Whenever she asked for something her mommy looked at her funny.
Michael spent over an hour with her alone telling her every detail he could recall about her. Thinking it was a game, Heather tried her best to play along.
"Come on, Heather. You went to the showers and you were crying. Don't you remember any of this?" Michael said now pleading with her.
"Why was I crying?" Heather asked him.
"Because I said you were too young for me." Michael said in hopes of jogging her memory.
Toddler only nodded no in response to show she still didn't remember.
Sounds of thunder were now heard in the distance. The wind was picking up again.
"Michael?" Came Jackie's soft voice from outside the flap.
"Yeah." Michael said unzipping the tent door.
"Any luck?" Jackie said peering in at Heather.
"No. She thinks its some kind of game." Michael said looking worried.
"Well, let me give it a shot. Maybe if she goes back to showers with me, I'll talk to her to see if she can remember. I even grabbed some supplies we need to wash up." Jackie explained her reasoning.
"I am coming too." Michael said grabbing Terry's bag with the children's clothes.
"Your little old and we might get in trouble if a ranger stops by." Jackie said almost smiling.
"You're a boy, silly. You can't go in." Heather said in a giggle.
"Have Terry make me into a real little kid. Around seven I guess. Most of the boy's clothes here are made for 7 year-olds." Michael said with a sure fire tone.
"OK. Stay here and I'll come and get you two in a second." Jackie said leaving the doorway.
Jackie came back wearing her bathing suit and an extra set of supplies for Michael. Michael's old shirt hung past his knees now. Heather looked happy he was closer to her age more then ever. Teenager Michael was no fun in her point of view.
"If this doesn't work, I think she should make the wish herself to become older. At least she can go back to being a teen even if she thinks that Holly is her mother." Jackie said coldly as they walked.
"What about the Heather we knew?" Michael said looking at the 2 year-old holding his hand while they walk. The darkness all around them was scaring her pretty badly.
"I guess she'd be gone." Jackie said after a brief pause.
Michael no longer cared for modesty with everything else on his mind. Heather didn't show any since she was a toddler and the people around her were her close friends.
Jackie told her much of same as Michael did. For the first time Heather believed it. No matter how hard they tried to get her remember she couldn't recall a single memory.
The group ran back to the tents as rain was starting to fall. Jackie was carrying Heather on the way back.
After Jackie was dressed again, she grabbed the pieces to the hourglass except for Michael's which was in his bag.
"OK, Heather. Just say I wish I was 12 years-old." Michael said after he changed back with a towel to hide his changes on his lower half.
"I wish I was 12 years-old." The toddler said only repeating what Michael said. Her hand was place directly on top of the hourglass.
Jackie put one of her shirts over Heather's body as a night shirt to wear and to hide her growing body.
Michael and Jackie looked closely at her eyes hoping against all fear they her eyes would change; only innocent eyes looked back with some fear in them.
Heather finally stopped changing when her shirt rose up to show she had breasts again.
"Who are you?" Jackie asked the first question.
"I know I am supposed to be Holly's sister, but I still can't remember." Heather said looking at them. All her thoughts were only about a life that really didn't exist.
"How old do you think you are?" Michael asked.
"I remember when I was younger you told me that I am really 10 years-old but I used the hourglass to make myself 12 years-old. I feel like I am 12 years-old and Holly is my mother." Heather said looking slightly confused.
"She can't be your mother. She is not old enough to have a daughter that is 12 years-old." Jackie said.
"The Hourglass. She used it to become young in my memories." Heather said still not sure if that was a fact.
"So confused." Heather said looking like she was going cry.
"It's ok, Come on. Let's get you back to your tent for the night. Maybe you'll remember in the morning." Jackie said putting her hand on Heather shoulder.
Michael kept his lantern on that night. He looked up into the ceiling of the tent trying to think of some new ideas to try out. Jackie said her good night and went to her tent to get out of the rain. Michael fell asleep just under two hours of thinking hard. His lantern light was still on. The other were asleep now with their own tents in darkness.
Heather awoke from her sleep. A bad dream had come to her. She was alone in the middle of a field with darkness all around her. Then she felt herself growing younger then darkness spreading and finally engulfing her into a dark world of nothingness.
Heather thought hard for second to remember her old life. Nothing came to her mind. She felt in her heart that she really was another person. She knew this for a fact when she looked through her bag. She found her small purse with her student ID in it. Then there items in there only teen would carry. Last was a picture of her family. Man and Woman that had to be her real parents. There was her sister standing beside her in picture.
"Who am I?" Heather asked herself in whisper.
Fork of lightning flashed across her tent made her jump. Heather felt alone in the dark tent. Wind and rain were coming hard in this summer storm.
Looking out of her tent window she saw that Michael's Lantern light was still on. Holly's tent was lost in the darkness only yards away. Heather didn't want to go to her tent acting like a scared little girl wanting mommy.
Heather gathered up all her courage and ran for Michael's tent. She entered it saying she was sorry to disturb him, but found he was asleep. She zipped the tent back up and looked at his face. Heather looked long and hard trying to make herself remember.
Another flash of lightning came and she let out a small scream of surprise. Michael awoke seeing her looking back at the door.
Allowing his eyes time to adjust in the soft light, he saw it was Heather sitting by the door.
"Heather, what are you doing?" Michael asked in surprised. Part of him really wanted to say 'you remember me!' in a shout.
"I didn't want to be alone." Heather said looking at him then the tent wall. Another
