Wow I can't believe I'm able to read this story again Jeffr_2bya, there was a whole lot more to it than I initially recalled. Libra did a wonderful job with this one, there's a lot of interesting ideas throughout that could be explored further.

Could you share "Hourglass time for an adventure" Vended? If that's a sequel to "Hourglass" I didn't even know it existed.

Time for an adventure -- Libra (2003)

Part 1

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

Part 2

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.

"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

"Just a storm. Nothing to be worried about." Michael said sitting up.

"Why didn't you go to your sister's tent or Jackie's?" Michael said searching her eyes.

"Didn't want them to think I was a frightened little girl wanting mommy. I know I am supposed to be someone else. This alone proves it and I can feel it." Heather said handing a small family picture to Michael.

Michael got out his spare sleeping bag and undid the flap to the door with only the screen door left untouched.

"Come on, let's watch the storm together." Michael said offering the spot next to him. Surprising enough to him and herself, Heather preferred to sit in front of him then guided his hands to hold her around the waist.

Now Heather could see the night sky and lightning unfiltered by the dark tent walls. A flash of light came in the dark sky, lighting everything up around them for brief few seconds. In that blight flash, a memory of a glowing white marble came to her. She felt something waking up inside her. She watched carefully as another flash of lightning came. More memories of the strange white light flicked in her mind with more memories in order of the most recent events first.

"The storm look likes it's over now. The last of the lightning is pretty far away."

"Am I still too young?" Heather asked in menacing tone.

"Heather?" Michael asked her, not sure if this was a joke.

"Part of her anyway. I remember who I am, but I can't recall anything before the camping trip." Heather said explaining herself.

"When did this happen?" Michael said knowing she wasn't acting before.

"Just now, it was the lightning. I kept seeing a strange white light then my memories were returning. I only remember what happened since yesterday." Heather said sounding surer of herself then ever.
"Blight flashes of light must have triggered your memories." Michael said.

"How much do you remember?" Michael asked her.

"I know who I am for the most part and what we did yesterday. I even know how I become a toddler. It was my fault that I lost my memory. I made a bad wish to the hourglass." Heather said as her mind was going over her old memories.

"Anything else?" Michael asked hoping to open the floodgate that was blocking the rest of her older memories.

"No, but you did make a cute 7 year-old." Heather said going red.

"You remember being a toddler?" Michael asked looking awkward.

"I remember being a small infant with terrible eye slight. Then I think I passed out or something. After that I can only recall being a toddler while everyone around me tried to convince me of the truth." Heather said smiling at him.

Her eyes were only slightly different now. Less innocent look in them, but for the most part the same, Michael thought as he looked.

"Weird not knowing who you really are, but feeling someone else inside you." Heather said looking at the dark sky outside.

"Wish that storm would come back." Michael said looking outside to the east.

"Strobe light." Heather said out loud to a question in her mind.

"Strobe light?" Michael asked her puzzled.

"Blight flashes should help me remember." Heather explained.

"Where are we going to get one this time of the night?" Michael said then thinking maybe Heather knows.

"Some of stores around here must sell them or we could order one off the internet." Heather answered.

"I am sure Terry will run to the store in the morning." Michael said glad to have his Heather back.

"Heather, I am sorry for anything I said." Michael said at long last.

"Don't' know if I completely forgive you or not. I have to decide that after I get all my memories back." Heather said breaking his arms apart where he held her tight.

"Thanks for not giving up on me." Heather said right before she left to go back to her tent.

Jackie was the next to discover part of Heather had come back. That morning she heard her say "Is my big sister up yet?"

Jackie could hardly wait for Terry and Holly to wake up. As soon as Terry awoke, Jackie filled him in on everything Heather told her and what Michael had said too.

Terry decided it would be best to wait til Holly woke up on her own. He remembered well the rough night she had trying to go to sleep. Terry left in his car to nearest store to start his quest to buy a strobe light. He remembered that Target and Walmart sometimes carries those items.

Overjoyed was to say the least about Holly's reaction to have her sister back. Michael was off the hook for moment and able to enjoy a few comments from Holly. Terry returned with a small stroke light in hand. Lucky he got one that was able to run on batteries and plug-in into the wall.

It only took a minute of running the light at the highest intensity level it had for Heather to recover all her memories.

"The other life I thought I experienced feels like a dream now." Heather said steadying herself. The light had made her temporary dizzy.

"Good to me again with all my real memories back." Heather said to the all the group.

"I'm happy to have you back and I think it's high time I do something about this." Holly said pulling her part of the hourglass out of her pocket.

Holly searched the ground for a second and found a nice bit of hard pavement. Raising her arm up, she threw with all her might the marble piece to the ground. Everyone ducked out of the way to avoid getting hit by marble fragments. Instead the marble piece bounced as if it was made out of rubber and not fragile marble. Again Holly tried to smash it and it bounced again.

"Didn't except that." Terry said looking at Holly first then the marble hourglass.

"OK. I'll just smash it with a rock." Holly said searching the ground around her feet. She did find a nice size rock that should do the job. Most of group had backed off; first fearing what the hourglass might do and second the minor chance of fragments.

Holly swung the rock perfectly to hit the marble dead center. A loud bang on rock on marble echoed.

"Not even a scratch." Holly said looking at the marble then feeling it with her fingers.

"You done sis?" Heather asked with a little bit of amusement.

"Yeah. It's safe to come out." Holly said breathing hard.

"That's a first. I never seen you lose control so fast and never seen marble that wouldn't break." Terry said looking little shocked.

The group sat at the picnic table to discuss the hourglass as Holly calmed back down.

"I guess when it split itself into four parts it must have gotten stronger." Michael said only guessing at best.

"Been too many close calls already. I just want these out of our lives forever." Holly said holding her piece lightly.

"I suppose we could just toss them, but I'm not tossing mine." Heather said frankly.

"Feel the same." Jackie said agreeing.

"Same" Terry said as he pulled his out.

"Even after all this you all still want to hang on to them?" Holly asked looking at them like she was the last sane person left in the world.

"Everything turned out ok in the end." Heather said.

Few general mummers from the rest of the group came after Heather's answer.

"If you can't beat them, join them I guess." Holly said looking at each of them.

"She does have a point. How many more times are we going to have close calls?" Jackie said not really asking, but stating a fact.

"It wasn't so bad. Being a real little kid and not pretending for once." Heather said.

"Sis, we almost lost you." Holly said and looking like her sister had gone mad.

"Maybe, but I am still here and have you noticed that every time we get into trouble there's always one of us that pulls the others out." Heather said looking at Holly then the group.

"She is right. Last time she pulled all of us out of the fire and yesterday it was our turn to return the favor." Terry said now thinking back.

"Oh man. What are we now? The musketeers." Jackie said with sarcasm tone.

"All for one and one for all." Michael said to answer Jackie's joke question.

"Hey, I am for that." Holly said with a smile.

"OK, it's decided then we look out for each other. Enough talk already lets hit the lake again. " Jackie said to stop the silliness she started.

"Yeah! I never got a chance to go." Heather said with a smile.

"Let's have some fun with hourglass this time. This time you can't pick your age. Someone else gets to do it for you." Jackie said with a devilish grin.

"Cool. Let's do it." Heather said with the same grin.

"I call first to go." Heather said as she pulled her part out of her pocket.

"I think I'll use my wish on Michael." Heather said looking at him with happy face.

"Do your worse." Michel said smiling back at her.

"I wish Michael was 7 years-old." Heather said with a commanding voice.

Changes were almost instant as Michael shrunk in height and body size to a 7 year-old boy. His clothes were now hanging and laying flat on his skinny body. His feet were not even touching the ground.

"My turn now." Jackie said reaching over to touch the hourglass in the center of the table.

"Since Holly is such a worry wart as a teen. I wish Holly was 5 years-old." Jackie said looking at her with an amused _expression_.

"Well, since I don't get much of chance to do this and to make up for what I said. I wish Heather was only 2 years-old." Michael said making his wish to the hourglass.

"I'm glad you want Holly to relax a bit more, Jackie. I think you should help her. I wish Jackie was 10 years old." Terry said smiling. Then he almost laughed at Jackie's face when her breasts all but disappeared under to her once tight shirt.

Holly had to stand on her seat and use one hand to hold her shorts up while she touched the hourglass with her other hand.

"I wish Terry was 25 years-old, because we need at least someone here to be an adult." Holly said in a cute 5 year-old voice.

Terry's shirt almost ripped as his own body grew.

"We better change into some new clothes." Terry said now feeling his tight shirt and shorts.

"Good thing there isn't any other campers in this area." Holly said as Terry helped her down off the table.

Terry couldn't have guess that most of group would become kids. He had only packed a few kids' clothes in different sizes. There was one swimsuit that would only fit Holly and some old swimming trucks for Michael. Jackie wore her old String bikini on her lower half with the strings going around her twice. It was a funny sight and cute picture to see Jackie looking like an adorable little girl. For the top half she put on the least childish shirt she could find in Terry's bag.

Heather didn't care whether to wear anything or not. She felt free and safe as long her friends were with her. Michael managed to find some kind of diapers made for swimming for Heather to wear. Besides her going naked his biggest concern was if she wasn't Heather anymore. One look into her eyes was enough to ease his worries.

Terry looked like a father with his children as they walked down the path to the lake. Terry had to carry Heather to the lake due the fact she couldn't kept up with the rest of group. Terry felt like this was his own family. The only difference was he didn't have this many sisters.

Saturday passed as a carefree day with no worries. They spent nearly all day at the lake playing and getting some sun. It was getting close to dinner time when they decided to head back to camp. The cutest part in Holly's opinion was when Heather fell asleep in Terry's arms as he carried her back.

Dinner was a boring event. Mostly they ate sandwiches and some cold soda. Then hit showers in which the girls went as a group then the boys separate. That night they went to bed feeling like they could sleep for days. Sometime in the early morning Heather snuck of out her small tent to go into Michael's tent. Only dress in a diaper, she laid next to him and fell back to sleep.

Jackie awoke in the morning first. She snuck a peak around inside the other tents. She saw that Heather had left her tent sometime during the night and laid down in Michael's tent beside him. Holly was sleeping on Terry chest wearing only some little girl's panties and his old t-shirt.

Jackie started to feel alone in the world. She had no one to hold her or share in this adventure except for her friends. She climbed onto the picnic top and sat looking over the empty lots. She drew up her knees under her night shirt and sat there holding them in place. Jackie thought about herself and on the all the boys she had dated. She even considered taking back Nicholas at that point. She become lost in her thoughts and stayed there until she was too cold.

The sun was still an hour away from rising over the trees. Morning was a bit cold to Jackie's preteen body. After a quick bathroom break at the restrooms she went back to bed.

Terry woke up that morning due to the small weight on his chest. He gently moved Holly off of his chest and left the tent to start breakfast. Coming from a large family he learned to cook at an early age. At the moment he was still an adult from using the hourglass. The morning was little chilly then the usual warm summer mornings.

Terry had a fire going for warmth and cooking. Sounds of him fixing eggs is what bought Michael and Heather out first to eat. They had awakened earlier, but decided not to leave the warm sleeping bag just yet. Michael had a child's shirt over Heather for cover and protection against the cold air.

Holly soon left her tent as well. She put on some more clothing then her sister and began to help Terry the best she could. Next to Terry she was the best cook in the group. Jackie was the last to get up to eat. The picnic table was moved closer to the fire and a few chairs were now setup. During breakfast which was just some eggs and toast with a little bacon, they discussed what do to this day. The idea of swimming would be out until much later on that day. The sun was hiding behind some clouds and looked like it would be there all day. They could only imagine how cold the water would be. Hiking was the next great idea, but there were not enough shoes for everyone. Terry only bought two pairs in children's sizes. One for a toddler and the other for a little kid around Holly's current age.

"We just have to change back then." Terry said after he explained the problem.

"I have to agree. There isn't enough clothing for all of us anymore. We are wearing the last of the children's clothes except for some little girl's underwear." Holly said as serious she could in a 5 year-old's voice.

"Ladies first." Jackie said right after Holly's words.

"Ok." Terry said looking amused at them. He was thinking 'little ladies first' at that point. Seeing all the girls were under the age of 11 years-old.

Finally girls the came out back to their normal selves except for Jackie. She had decided to become younger. This was a surprise to the group. Jackie was a lot like Heather when it came to the hourglass. She had always wanted to be older then her normal self. Jackie was wearing the same outfit Holly had on earlier with the only shoes that would fit her.

"Why didn't Jackie change back?" Terry quietly asked Holly.

"She didn't want too." Holly said answering almost in a whisper.

Michael didn't waste any time entering the tent himself. He already grabbed his bag of old clothes and entered the tent where the hourglass was.

"Change me back as well Mike." Terry called out as he entered.

Terry's clothes were getting tight on him. He was happy to feel them loosen up as he became his normal teen self.

Michael emerged from the tent back to normal and fully dressed. Each teen took their piece of the hourglass back and clean up the campsite. Most of the dirty clothes were put into Terry's garage bag of laundry. Any of the children's clothing discover by his parents could be explained that they used them for rags. The only flaw in that lie was why they brought underwear and shoes.

The couples of the group did a good morning kiss and finished up getting everything ready. The tents were emptied and packed away into the cars. Jackie's stuff was put into Heather's car just in case she wanted to change back later. Terry temporarily gave his part of the hourglass to Holly just in case.

After the cars were locked up they had a very enjoyable walk on the hiking trail. The boys on each side of the sisters holding their hands with Jackie in middle holding onto Holly's right hand and Heather's left hand. Since she was youngest in the group now she was getting the special treatment.

Jackie's mood had lighted up as they walked. Holly and Heather had even started to lift her over the harder parts of trail as they walked. Jackie had to hold back a laugh, but did show she liked it by smiling.

Holly thought for sure that Jackie would change back soon, but she still wanted to be a little girl. Jackie rode in the back of Holly's car on the way back. She even laid down and fell asleep as they went down the highway to home.

"It's strange that she didn't want to change back." Heather said to Holly and then checking to see if Jackie was really asleep. Jackie didn't stir or move an inch.

"I think she was feeling lonely." Holly whisper back then motioned not to say anything else on the subject.

Heather only gave the sleeping Jackie a pity look then started a chat on when they would get to use the hourglass again.

Jackie only came out of her sleep when Heather was shaking her awake. They were at Jackie's home now.

"Come on. Let's go inside and change you back. " Holly said as she turned off the engine.

"No. I don't want to change back." Jackie said as soon as she was awake.

"Enough games you can't stay in that house all alone." Holly said knowing that Jackie had lost her parents two years ago.

"Want to stay like this a little longer that's all." Jackie said rubbing her eyes.

"Alright, Heather stay with her and I'll tell mom and dad your helping Jackie unpack." Holly said starting the car up again.

Heather only nodded and got out of car with Jackie. Holly only thought on how strong Jackie had been to be on her own for the past two years. She had no family left and only the family fortune was given to her along with the house. Jackie only moved back home a year ago from her apartment. She had become her own legal guardian thanks to the family lawyer.

Heather knew all this as well from her mother and sister. Heather didn't mind babysitting again, despite the fact that she wasn't getting paid for it. She thought it was the best job in the world. Jackie didn't think she needed Heather around. Jackie didn't realize that she rearranged the house for her teen self. The simple task as getting a drink was impossible to her. The glasses were high up in the cabinets and the pitcher was far too heavy for a 5 year-old to carry.

Heather exchanged general chit-chat with Jackie throughout the evening. It wasn't until Holly called on the phone that Heather knew her task was over with.

"Heather, I really like to do this again sometime." Jackie said as they waited for Holly to ring the doorbell.

"Sure. It was fun looking after you for once." Heather said giving Jackie a small hug.

Long musical tones of the doorbell came at that moment.

Jackie went to her room upstairs as Holly made the wish to the assembled hourglass on the coffee table. Jackie was only dressed in one of her shirts when Holly came in, which looked like a night shirt on the little girl.

"I can't believe you wanted to be a little girl for so long." Holly said seeing the teen Jackie back at long last.

"It's a lot of fun when you get a great babysitter." Jackie said smiling at Heather.

After some quick goodbyes the sisters left to go home.

Holly asked a few questions about Jackie and the house. Holly hadn't been in it for a few months. She learned from Heather that Jackie had only put most of the personal stuff in the attic and only slept in her old room.

"Most of house is untouched and she keeps the doors shut to the other rooms." Heather said as she thought back to the tour Jackie gave her.

"They were a close family. I think Jackie took it pretty well so far. She has been trying to settle down with someone for awhile now. I think she wants to start a family of her own now to fill up that empty house." Holly said to explain Jackie's ways.

"I hope she does." Heather said as an afterthought.

"I do too." Holly said then smiling at her.

"I'll bet you'll be happy to be out of school." Holly said as they got out of the car and started walking toward the house.

"Official Summer season begins so we are on break until August." Heather explained just in case her older sister had forgotten.

"This year I will be starting college with Terry before too long." Holly said as they entered the house.

Mrs Fields came rushing into the living when she heard her daughters return. Heather was going red how much she was fussed over her. Her mother asked all kinds of questions and expressed her joy to have her baby girl home.

"Mom! I was only gone for a few days." Heather said breaking out of the bear hug.

"I'm just so happy your home." Her mother explained.

Holly had slipped out of sight while Heather we getting all the attention.

Heather unpacked her stuff and went into her sister's room to return some of the clothes she borrowed.

"Hey Sis, We need to talk later about you know what." Holly said glancing over at the china cabinet where three parts of marble hourglass were locked away.

Later on that night when house was quiet and all the sleeping bags and clothes were washed, Heather snuck into her sister's room.

"What is it sis?" Heather asked as she came into the darkness.

"It's about the hourglass. We have to decide what to do with it before me and Terry leave. We'll be busy with college and so far away that it would be rare for us to all be together again. Jackie told me she'll be working as soon she gets out of school. I'm still unsure what to do with it." Holly explained.

"Going to give it to me?" Heather asked looking at the almost whole marble.

"My part of hourglass will go to you. Terry said he is thinking of loaning his piece to Michael for safe keeping. His little sister has been hunting for it a lot lately. Are you ready for that kind of responsibility?" Holly asked very seriously.

"I think I am." Heather said swallowing hard. She still remembered the power Hourglass a little too well.

"You know by the time I am out of college you should be almost done with school, unless you skip a grade or two." Holly said to cheer her up.

"I'll try." Heather said with a weak smile.

"Don't worry too much. I'll be back on the Holidays and if you need any help, I am sure Michael will be there for you." Holly said to reassure her little sister.

Summer break flew by in blurred memories of going to movies, swimming at Terry's pool and group outings at various ages. Holly left for college leaving Heather to have her own adventures with the Hourglass. Heather found herself more alone then ever. Michael was busy with school and work and Jackie was the same.

The hourglass didn't get used much over the year. It was hard to get the entire group together in one spot. Heather and Jackie spent most time they could being extremely careful in using the hourglass.

Jackie mostly used it to relax and get away from her adult life while Heather found herself looking after her more and more. Michael seemed to be little jealous of their relationship from time to time.

Jackie, regressing and staying as a child so much, suggested to Heather they should revamp a room as a playroom for kids and put in some spare clothing in as well.

"Brilliant idea. That way we could hang out here as well, and it can be our headquarters. We won't have to sneak around as much." Heather said looking at the near empty room.

In the end they decided to turn the _base_ment into one big play room. Jackie's father had one part of it changed into a pool hall and TV area while the rest was unfinished.

"Silly I guess. I don't like to spend my family's fortune much. I have been spending only my money I earned." Jackie said as she was scrubbing a stain on the floor in the _base_ment.

"We'll have to remember not to make this room too childish." Heather said not sure if that was the correct thing to say.

Jackie was currently wiping and dusting everything off while Michael was busy with the windows on the door that lead to a closed fence area.

"Why do you like being 5 years-old all the time?" Michael asked looking at the little girl that was Jackie.

"Well, it's a good age. I am out of diapers and don't have to be in school." Jackie said smiling.

Both Heather and Michael grinned at her joke answer.

"I guess I'm just a poor little witch girl." Jackie said doing a pretty good lisp and puppy dog face.

"Maybe its time for your bath." Michael said as he finished cleaning the last window and then stood over her.

"She is pretty dirty." Heather said looking at Jackie.

"I think I'll go give her a bath." Michael said picking her up around the waist and then carrying her toward the stairs.

"No. Don't you dare." Jackie said in a high pitch voice with some panic.

Heather waited for a full minute hearing Jackie scream even louder. She even toyed with the idea of letting Michael give her a bath; the embarrassment would be a killer. Heather then ran up the stairs and found that Michael didn't really have any intention in carrying out his threat. He was taking his time for one thing and going as slow as possible.

Jackie seemed to know it was a joke as well, but had a little doubt about it.

"Ok, Michael." Heather said looking very amused.

"I think she took us seriously." Michael said letting Jackie go.

"No I didn't." Jackie said with her hair looking little funny. It had become out place and looked like she was flipped upside down.

"Your hair is a mess now too." Heather said looking at her from head to toe.

"I kinda hung her upside down for a second." Michael admitted sheepishly.

At his words Jackie went red and started to comb her hair with her hand.

"Well, we just have to get even won't we Jackie." Heather said in a somewhat joking voice.

"Yeah." Jackie said now looking at Michael's worried face.

"It won't be so bad. What do you think Jackie about having him crawl around on the fall as a rug-rat?" Heather said looking at Michael as well.

"Yeah and I can give him a bath" Jackie said grinning ear to ear.

"Quit joking." Michael said holding back his nervous laughter.

"Joking?" Heather said then taking Jackie's hand and shutting the bathroom door behind them.

Michael stood for a brief second a little worried then decided to gather up the cleaning supplies.

"Like a little sister I never had." Heather said as she stood just behind Jackie in the shower. Dirt and sweat washed off their bodies.

"I feel the same way too." Jackie said with her eyes closed tightly. Heather was currently washing her hair and the shampoo that wasn't exactly tear free.

"Kinda bratty in a way too." Heather said with a small laugh.

"I think I've cleaned as much as I can." Heather said handing the small wash cloth into Jackie's little hands. Heather was using it to scrub off any dirt on Jackie's upper body.

"It's ok." Jackie said handing the wash cloth back. Heather sat down at that point to be more on Jackie's eye level so she wouldn't have to bend down to wash her.

Jackie slowly turned around and looked at Heather kinda funny.

"What?" Heather asked as she dab the wash cloth at Jackie's childish face.

"Just thinking how awkward this is." Jackie said grinning.

"Being in the shower together?" Heather asked little puzzled. She herself got use to showering with other girls at school and on the camping trip.

"Kinda. It's just that we were both teens and all." Jackie said feeling a slight tickle as Heather moved down her stomach with the wash cloth.

"Come on, we are sisters in a way." Heather said thinking about the time Jackie was cool to her even when she couldn't change her age.

"You know what is really funny. Before the hourglass I always thought of you as the little sister I never had" Jackie said smiling.

"Look who is talking." Heather said grabbing and pulling Jackie in a small bear hug.

"Think you can babysit again tonight?" Jackie said looking overjoyed at the closeness they shared.

"I think I can. My mom knows we have become good as best friends since Holly left." Heather finished up Jackie and scrubbed down and then sled the door open.

"Good" Jackie said stepping out and grabbing a towel to dry up with. Jackie had kept a funny habit of wrapping one towel around her head and the next around her body.

Heather finished up quickly and was out in no time after Jackie.

Heather peered out of the bathroom after she open the door.

"I think Michael's in the _base_ment. Better go up to your room and grab some clothes." Heather said carefully stepping out with Jackie just at her side.

"Shame we have all the kid's outfits down there." Jackie said as she totted behind and taking the steps carefully.

"I'll just throw one of your old shirts over you." Heather said as they reached the top steps.

"Think we can have a little fun with the hourglass." Jackie said they enter her room.

"Sure." Heather said as unzipped her bag.

"Can I ask a big favor?" Jackie said when she noticed something in Heather's bag.

All the way down in the _base_ment Michael had finished cleaning up and was now looking around the _base_ment. In one corner of the room there was a kinda nursery area and in the other was a bunk bed with a dresser next to it suitable for teens, but had nothing but children's clothing in it.

On the other side was the pool table with the computer/TV area and near by that was the double doors that lead outside to the revamped jungle gym.

'Not bad at all.' Michael said looking about. It looked like a rec room for teens that bought their little brother or sister along to stay.

Michael was amusing himself on the look Holly would have when the door open to the _base_ment.

It was Jackie small feet he heard coming down.

"What's up squirt?" Michael asked in a joking voice.

"Nothing." Jackie said sounding odd in Michael's opinion.

Jackie was currently wearing her teen size shirt as she headed over to the dresser. To his mild surprise Jackie flipped the shirt off and began dressing with children's clothes she pulled out of the dresser.

Michael adverted his eyes for a few seconds before glancing back. She had just got done pulling up some PJ pants when he noticed that she was watching him closely.

Michael stepped forward to get a better look at her. Something was different about her.

"Jackie, are you ok?" Michael said then seeing her eyes. An innocent and vague look was there and Jackie looked just like any other little girl.

"Jackie, I forgot. How old are you again?" Michael said very seriously.

"Five" Jackie said after she pulled on a matching PJ t-shirt over her head.

Michael was utterly confused. Questions of how and why were asked in his mind. His thoughts were interrupted by Jackie's giggles.

"What is it?" Michael asked the smiling child.

"Hethwer going to make you little." Jackie said slightly swinging her body from side to side.

Before Michael could ask how young he felt the warmness in his stomach. Heather must have given Jackie a minute or two head start before she made her wish.

Michael was already in his preteens by the time he made his way to the bed to sit. Heather was now coming down the stairs looking very excited.

"I told you we were going to make you a rug-rat." Heather said approaching little Micheal.

"Well ok, but what happen to her?" Michael said not looking worried as he was nearing her age now.

"Well, she got the idea when she saw I packed the strobe light." Heather said sitting next to Michael then cuddling Jackie in her arms.

"It could be dangerous." Michael said as he was now exactly Jackie's age.

"Don't worry about it. It worked before and Jackie said she wouldn't mind being a kid. The only thing she asked if it went wrong that I would adopt her as my little sister." Heather said sounding like they had a serious conversation.

"I am your sister." Jackie said proudly and looking slightly puzzled at Heather words.

Michael shirt was now dangerously threatening to fall down his toddler's body through the collar.

Heather had released Jackie and she went to the bottom drawer where they kept all the diapers.

"Amazing all the stuff she bought." Heather said looking at Jackie as she picked out a pink diaper.

"This one sissy." Jackie said then walked back over to hand it to Heather.

"This one's for girls." Heather said as she held it lightly.

"I know, but it's pretty" Jackie said rolling her eyes at Heather for not seeing the obvious reason she picked it.

"Don't worry. I'll put some shorts on you to hide it." Heather said as she diapered Michael in a hurry.

"I decided to make you one so you can walk as much as crawl." Heather said raising her voice back to normal.

"Uncle Mike looks funny." Jackie said looking at the baby features on his face.

"He is going to pretend to be our baby brother just for tonight." Heather said as she put some shorts and slightly large shirt over his body.

"Can we stway up late tonight?" Jackie asked very hopefully.

"Only a little then it's off to bed with you." Heather said getting up and holding Michael on her hip. Heather bent down and picked up his clothes to toss in the hamper.

"Good thing you were washed up so much already Michael." Heather said noticing his hands and face were pretty much clean.

"What should we do tonight?" Heather asked after she gave Michael a little bounce.

"Cartoons!" Jackie said very excited now.

Jackie sat on floor with Michael in her lap. Her head barely came over the top of his, but she didn't seem to mind as Heather turned on the TV then surfed the channels on the cable until she found some cartoons.

"Stay right here ok. I got to make a phone call and change." Heather said as simply as she could to Jackie.

"Ok." Jackie said mildly not taking her eyes off the screen.

Heather decided to be quick and was about to head back downstairs when a thought occurred to her. Smiling she ascended the stairs quickly to the upper level of the house.

The hourglass was still assembled expected for her part. Heather had forgotten she wanted a chance to be little older then her normal desired age.

'Be a good time to try it' she thought as put her part to touch with others. The shirt she had on now was pretty loose on her body and the pants she had were the draw string type.

Thinking carefully and fast Heather decided to choose 30 years old as a good number.

'Preview time.' Heather said wittingly as she made her wish.

Heather loosened the string on her pants as her hips became wider and was glad she wasn't wearing a bra. Her breasts seem to keep growing past her wildest dreams. They were becoming mature huge breasts much like her mother's chest. Her body lost it curves as she aged and took on more adult features then she thought of.

Heather was disappointed to see her body lose its curve and became very even like. Heather was amazed just how much she looked like her mom. Her hair color was only slightly lighter and she looked a lot younger, Heather was thinking as she looked at her body in the mirror.

'Wow' Heather thought looking at her body. Her breasts were huge compare to her old ones and her body looked great in her opinion.

'The kids.' The thought seemed to interrupt her pleasant moment.

Not wanting to be irresponsible, Heather made her back downstairs only after hiding Jackie's part of the hourglass and her own.

"Mommy?" Jackie asked catching the sight of Heather's new age and body first. She was far older then she had ever made herself before.

"No, it's me." Heather said bending down to be eye level with the pair.

"Really pretty Hethwer." Jackie said looking in complete awe.

Michael at the moment had a funny grin on his face and made hand moments he wanted to be picked up. Giving in, Heather lifted him up with greater ease then she could ever remember. Heather took a seat on the sofa that was just in front of Jackie's sitting spot and relaxed with Michael sitting in her lap and laying on her left breast.

Michael didn't seem to even care what she had done. Jackie climbed up to the sofa and cuddle next to Heather on her right side. Heather felt so warm with the pair of them sitting by her that she didn't want this night to ever end.

When Jackie fell asleep curled up like a cat next to Heather, Heather knew it was time for an early night's rest. Leaving Michael to sit on the couch, Heather easily carried Jackie over to the bunk bed. Jackie awoke with a bit of start, but looked ready to go back to sleep. Heather started to put Jackie in lower bunk bed, but she protested she wanted to be in the top bunk.

Very groggily she climbed the ladder and fell right on the mattress with a dull thud.

"Good night." Heather said then switching some of the lights off.

"Good night" from a very tired Jackie was barely heard by Heather.

Heather picked up Michael and took the steps as quietly as possible.

"I think she just might sleep all night." Heather said to the baby that was Michael.

"You're kinda quiet." Heather said just now noticing that Michael didn't talk all night since his transformation.

"Enjoying the view?" Heather said smiling at Michael who was holding tightly to her side. His face was just above her breasts.

Michael only grinned and looked at her with a fake innocent look.

Heather decided to sleep in the master bedroom tonight. Jackie's own bed was too small for her and the sofa on the 1st floor was too.

"Sleep in here just for tonight." Heather said setting down Michael to sit in the middle of the huge bed.

Heather stripped off her shirt and gave a Michael a small grin over her shoulder. Heather walked into the bathroom to look at herself in the mirror and get ready for bed.

She was now topless and in perfect view of Michael as he watched with great interest. A half naked adult woman was enough to make any guy look at least once.

"Does Mikey like my new body?" Heather said putting on a show for him by holding her new breasts.

Michael only giggled and turned away for a brief second.

When he looked back one of Heather's breasts was hanging right in front of him and she was stripping off his shirt. Next came his shorts as Heather laid him on his back.

"There we go." Heather said after she removed his clothing just leaving his diaper.

Heather slipped off her own pants and climbed in just under the sheets close to Michael. Michael had only a brief glimpse at her lower half. The teen underwear she wore did very little to hide her new maturity. Michael wished at the moment he was his teen self again.

"Pretty in pink." Heather said grinning at his diaper then picked him up to rest on her chest.

As Michael caressed her breast gently stroking it with a small smile, Heather showed her affection by stroking his back with her nails, which made Michael arch his back slightly at her touch.

"I'm half tempted to let you change back." Heather said looking at the adorable baby who was her boyfriend.

Michael looked up at her with a very hopeful look in his eyes.

"But I don't think we cuddle as much if you were older." Heather said to answer Michael unspoken question.

Michael's face frowned at that moment, but it wasn't her answer that made him disappointed. In his excitement he was wetting himself and it was streaming out without any control. The diaper he was wearing was doing its job, but it was a loose fit. The unmistakable feeling of wetness of a baby wetting himself was felt as a bit of his urine trickled onto Heather's waist through the covers.

In a panic Heather picked him up and undid his diaper and sat him on the toilet. Michael legs were now spread eagle and his hands were used to cover himself. Heather either sensing or not he wanted some privacy left the room with a wash cloth to clean the bed. A faint sound of urine hitting the water below was heard by both as she left.

'Why did that diaper have to be so thin and loose on him?' Michael complained to himself in his thoughts, then going red to what had just happen right in front of his girlfriend.

"Just a few drops" she said coming back in. Then tossing the sheet and wash cloth in the hamper.

Michael was thinking on how it could get any worse then this, when a figure of young girl appeared in the doorway.

It was Jackie looking like she just woke up and crying slightly.

"Had a bad drweam." Jackie said peering into the lighted bathroom that was blinding her.

"Shhh." Heather said bending down to comfort the child.

Jackie now caught slight of little baby Michael sitting on the toilet with his hands trying to hide what was left of his manhood.

"Mikey had a little accident. Do you think you can run down and get me a diaper?" Heather said now noticing why Jackie broke the little hug.

"Yeah." Jackie said then turned and ran out of the room before Heather could say another word.

Heather lifted up Michael off the toilet and sat him on a towel laid across counter just by the sink. Using the last clean wash cloth, Heather was gently wiping Michael down as he laid back.

"Sorry we don't have any baby supplies. This warm cloth is all we have." Heather said as she wiped Michael with a grin.

"What?" Michael managed to say and wondered what evil little thoughts were in her mind.

"Nothing. Just thinking that you're the one too young for me and your little...." Heather said and breaking off, but looking at his lower half.

Michael only glanced down, but then stared at her chest.

Heather only just realized that she was no better now being completely naked. A brief moment of modesty came over then passed. There was no reason to cover herself up at the moment. The only people that saw her were her boyfriend and little Jackie who at the moment thought they were sisters.

"Nice try." Heather said calmly to show she didn't panic.

Little Jackie came in holding a white diaper and came over to the side of Heather. Her head was barely in sight of Michael. Jackie peered over curiously at Michael.

Micheal went red as Jackie was carefully looking him over as Heather unfolded the diaper.

"He is so cute." Jackie said now cheering up, but her eyes still show signs she had been crying.

"Can I help? Plwease." Jackie said begging to Heather.

"Just this once." Heather said nearly laughing at Michael's _expression_.

Jackie lowered the lid to the toilet and climbed up on it to stand now looming over Michael.

"Grab his leg there and lift him up just a little bit." Heather said taking Michael's right leg lifting it up gently.

Jackie did the same on the other side as Heather slid the diaper under his butt then undoing the tabs and fastening it on.

Jackie tried her best to do the same, but her fingers were very small and weak.

"Just like this." Heather said fastening on the other side just as tight to show Jackie how it was done.

Michael felt like this was worst then anything he had ever experience. To be treated like a baby and in front of a girlfriend and a friend.

"Make it up to you in the morning." Heather whispered into his ear as she picked him up.

"Can I slweep with you?" Jackie asked as she followed Heather out of the bathroom.

"Ok." Heather said sitting Michael on the last cover and ducking under the cover herself for warmth.

Jackie stripped off her night shirt and pants then climbed into the bed as well. Heather only smiled at her actions and assumed she wanted to be like her sister. Jackie got under the covers almost the same as Heather and then moved little closer. Michael laid between them just at both of the girl's chest levels.

"Time for sleep everyone" Heather said then switching off the light.

In the morning Jackie was first to wake up and leave the room. She went for the nearest TV which was in her old room. She sat on the bed and used the remote to pick her channel. Saturday morning cartoons were just starting and she was delighted to see these were cartoons she didn't know anything about. Names of shows seemed to be in her mind.

Michael awoke next giving a great kick into the air. He felt and knew that he was wet again. The dream he had told him he was. In his dream he was swimming in some very cold water.

Nudging Heather she woke up as well and seeing Michael's face knew something was wrong.

"Wet again?" She asked sitting up while keeping the covers from slipping down her chest.

Michael only nodded his head then looked at the door toward Jackie's room.

"OK. I'll go make a wish for you to return to normal. Then we'll take a little shower together." Heather said then slipping on her night shirt and picking up Jackie's discarded clothing.

"Morning." Heather called to Jackie who didn't bother to put back on her clothes and was still was in her underwear.

"Morning." Jackie said in mono tone voice and keeping her eyes fixed on the TV.

"Going to take a little shower then change Mikey back. Knock on the door if you need me." Heather said after she picked up her bag with the marble parts hidden within.

"Ok." Jackie said in the same mono tone voice.

Tossing Jackie's clothes in hamper she quickly assembled the hourglass and made a quick wish. She noticed that it took a bit effort to pull the parts of marble away from each. It was like magnets were inside the marble now.

'Was it becoming whole again.' Heather wondered then lost that thought as she heard the now toddler Michael come up behind her, trying to undo the tabs on his diaper which was very tight on him. Heather bent down and undid the tabs for him. He quickly aged back to teenhood completely naked with Heather watching in simple amazement at the changes before her.

Michael kept his hands over his manhood til he was old enough not to care.

After a bit love making in the shower and then in the bed, Heather decided to change back now and change Jackie back if she really wanted too, as she laid next to Michael on the master bed with the door locked.

Heather changed back in age then put some clothes on.

Carrying her bag back to Jackie's room she explained the truth to Jackie with a serious tone. At first Jackie thought it was game of pretend then started to believe it.

Heather shut the door to the room and did her best to cut off sources of light. The room remained very well lit with the morning sun shining through the closed curtains. She plugged in the strobe light and switched it on.

Jackie's vague eyes watched with little hope that this wasn't a game. Memories begin to flood her mind, going in reverse from her most recent to her oldest ones.

"Heather?" Jackie said looking very confused then taking her eyes off the blight flashes.

Soft knock came at the door and Michael enter the room and shut the door behind him.

"She back?" Michael asked Heather unable to see Jackie's eyes clearly.

The flicker in and out of darkness on the strobe light was set on lowest pulse rate it had.

"Why am I only dressed in panties?" Jackie said now noticing she was almost naked. She also made attempts to hide herself.

"Keep watching the light." Heather said. Jackie caught on now what had happen and stared with all her might at the flashes.

"Going to make it faster. You should be back to normal in a minute." Heather said reaching behind and turning the knob.

Countless flashes came now lighting the room like a bad haunted house gag. Dizziness came over Jackie, but still she watched the lights. Finally all her memories were back now. What had happen since yesterday seemed like a dream now.

"Turn it off now. I am pretty sure I am back." Jackie said with no lisp and sounding like she was back to normal.

As Heather clicked it off, Michael turned on the lights and opened the curtains again. Jackie was busy digging out the smallest shirt she could find. Tossing over her head then standing up. The shirt hung past her thighs and just above her knees.

"How much do you remember?" Heather asked curiously.

"Nearly everything, but it felt like someone else was dreaming it. There were times I was aware I wasn't really a kid, but I didn't really care and went back to being a real 5 year-old." Jackie explained and checking to see if she was covered up.

"Talk about a vacation from yourself." Michael said then walking over to Heather's side.

Jackie then giggled a bit at Michael.

"I remember what happened in the bathroom as well." Jackie said looking at Michael with amusement.

"Well..." Michael said then looking away now lost for words.

"Don't know about you Jackie, but I am staving. " Heather said then opening the door.

"Me too." Michael said quickly and leaving the room slowly.

"Think you can make some pancakes with blueberries?" Jackie said running behind Heather as she left the room.

"I think so. What should we do next with the hourglass?" Heather asked as they left.

"I don't know. I guess we just have to wait and see." Jackie said grinning. It had been a very weird weekend so far.

The rest of the weekend passed with some dull normal events.

Holly came back on break soon enough for Heather's relief and had an announcement that she was getting married after their first year of college. There was little surprise to most because they knew her well. The wedding was a nice small one with just friends and family.

Jackie had recently become an unknown element in the group. No one was sure if she was going to be an adult bride's maid or very young bride's maid. An adult Jackie showed up and amazed everyone by giving the young couple some nice land with a small house that needed some fixing up just in between home and the college campus.

"The place isn't much, but with little work you might just call it home." was all Jackie had to say about it.

Heather's own life was steady getting worse. Between school and friends she didn't have much time to herself. Her relationship with Michael had been on and off over the weeks.

What bugged Heather the most was her sister's empty room more then anything else. The furniture was still there at the moment but the room was empty of all the personal items, from clothing to pictures on the wall. Heather had life to worry about more.

A few years passed as Heather's own life fell into place.

Heather was nearly done with High School herself. She really wanted to show her parents she could be on her own. Heather could hardly turn down Jackie's offer to rent a room at her house after she signed a few papers. Jackie didn't go to any college but instead stayed at home and worked most of the time. With the money she inherited, there was little reason to get a career, but in her spare time she seemed to remodel the house slightly.

Heather herself made plans to go to college herself but only for two years at the most. She didn't really want to stay away from home for very long and would finish up her education later. Heather found she had some tough money problems. Her family was too well off to get government assistance and loans looked like they were going to take a long time to pay off.

It was one evening when Heather was going over applications for loans that Jackie knocked on the door and came in.

"Still worrying?" Jackie said as she sat on the master bed and watched Heather looked up from the computer desk. Heather then thought again it was odd that she would get the largest room while Jackie stayed in her own room.

"A little." The now 16 year old Heather said glancing down at her papers.

"That expensive huh?" Jackie said with a small smile.

"Yeah, but at least I get live in a dorm for a while."Heather said flexing her arms.

"There something I want to show you." Jackie said getting up and taking a left out of the room to go downstairs.

Heather followed with curiosity since Jackie always took a right because her room was that way. Jackie waited for Heather to catch up and then opened the door to the spare bedroom on the ground floor. Instead of the normal drab furniture the room had been changed into a room for a fairly young girl.

"I've been working on this off and on as I remodeled the _base_ment with a few minor touches." Jackie said standing in the doorway while Heather took a good look around.

"Are you?" Heather asked Jackie looking at her body closer then before. Heather was wondering if she got pregnant.

"No, but you're going to have a daughter off and on. Perhaps help me open a daycare business." Jackie said smiling.

"I'm what?" Heather said looking confused.

"Me." Jackie said as she entered the room.

"Jackie. I can't be looking after little kids now. I got college to think about." Heather said thinking this was Jackie's idea of great way to spend the time they had left.

"No, you misunderstand. I really want to do this. We could be partners in a way." Jackie said as she picked up a stuff animal then tossing into a corner.

"Why?" Heather said thinking it over. "I'm tired of doing nothing all the time and I want to do something good for once with my money." Jackie said then went on speaking.

"I'm tired of looking for someone and trying to start a family. So instead I have been planning to open a daycare with you as a partner." Jackie said as she looked at the various furniture.

"I would have asked Holly, but I know her too well. She's got her own life to live." Jackie said looking at Heather very seriously.

"How young were you thinking?" Heather said looking at the toys.

"As young I was that summer a few years back. I only want to be little kid sometimes so you won't have to put up with me all the time." Jackie said with a strange hope in her voice.

"I don't know." Heather said trying to give herself more time to think it over.

"I'll pay your way into college and all you have to do is adopt me. Then help me in this business adventure. " Jackie said as this was simple.

"Are you sure you know what you're asking?" Heather said looking at her with a strange _expression_. "I got it all work out. Remember when you signed up for rent here. You also signed up to be the legal guardian for any children I may have. When you get back, I'll simply change into my role as your daughter and flaky business partner. Any doubts someone will just run a DNA test. As long as they don't look too closely, they will see I am a genetic match." Jackie said as she kept her hands still.

"You have been working on this a long time. The house is nearly ready for business." Heather said now looking around the room.

"Once the house is baby proofed and some loose ends are put away I'll be more then ready." Jackie said now moving toward the door.

"Let's take this slowly. You have never spent a long time as a little kid before. I don't know if your regret it later." Heather said as she left the room.

"Still a lot I have to do, but if I change my mind I can always go back to being a teen. My old will still be wanting for me." Jackie said as she turned off the light.

"We'll hire a few trusted people and then I can be your mysterious business partner that shows up off and on." Jackie said as she shut the door.

"Going to make me do all the work then?" Heather said as they walked back down the hallway.

"Giving you no choice." Jackie said in a joking manner.

"I could refuse to give you a chance to touch the hourglass again." Heather said as a minor threat.

"Ditto, kid." Jackie said grinning at her empty threat.

"I really want you to think about this. Count me in if this is what you really want, but think about all the people you're leaving behind when you're a kid all the time." Heather said looking little sad.

"I got two years to make my finally decision and we get in some practice in the spare time we have." Jackie said still smiling and hoping to cheer Heather up.

"Don't think I am not going to spank you when your bad little girl either." Heather said looking at her sternly.

"As long as it is not too hard." Jackie joked.

"Deal." Heather said now breaking her false sternness and grinning.

"Better become an expert on kids while you're away." Jackie said as Heather was climbing the stairs.

"Going to tell Holly later on when I get back from my first semester. You'll need to explain this to her at the very least." Heather said from the steps.

"Alright." Jackie said before going into the living room.

At first Heather felt she was just using Jackie to get through college payments. Heather almost whispered to herself as she was thinking it over.

Heather herself made plans to go to college herself but only for two years at the most. She didn't really want to stay away from home for very long and would finish up her education later. Heather found she had some tough money problems. Her family was too well off to get government assistance and loans looked like they were going to take a long time to pay off.

"Going to tell Holly later on when I get back from my first semester. You'll need to explain this to her at the very least." Heather said from the steps.

"Alright." Jackie said before going into the living room.

At first Heather felt she was just using Jackie to get through college payments. Heather almost whispered to herself as she was thinking it over.

Heather finished up college with high grades due to her spending more time in classes then to herself. She was well on her way to becoming an elite child psychologist. Mixed with her classes on child care and her naturally gift with children she was the best the college had seen in a long time.

Heather had almost spent three years at college. Heather started to enjoy the trips back home. Jackie had started the step process every time she came home by wishing to become younger and younger each time. She refused to change back to normal even with Heather gone most of the time. Now Jackie was in care of Holly and Terry and loving every minute of it.

Hardly older then six months old, Jackie was sleeping in a crib while she was temporary staying at Holly's and Terry's house, as Terry ran around the house preparing their own home for their first child. Jackie seemed to think she was good practice for the young couple. Both Jackie and Heather were soon to become an aunt to the child that was due to arrive.

Michael had only stayed around as long he could be with all his friends before he started college with Heather. The innocent love Michael had for Heather had faded away long ago and they grew closer to each other as real love took over. Heather still regarded him as a great friend and even better lover. Michael was informed on Jackie's plan but wasn't sure what to make of it yet.

Jackie's own disappearance was explained that she was traveling the world and having fun. Soon the latest news on Jackie was she came back to drop off her daughter to be raised by people she considered her family. The group knew this would cause a few raised eye brows here and there.

Jackie old house almost looked nothing like the new one. Jackie donated and sold almost everything and converted the house into one big daycare for kids. Only the upstairs looked anything like her old house.

Jackie was in Heather arms now looking so much like her daughter already.

"Going to miss having you this small." Holly said giving her one last hug then returning her to Heather's arms.

"Say goodbye to Uncle Terry." Heather said allowing Jackie to lean forward to get a small hug.

Instead she kissed him on the cheek.

"Yuck. That's a wet kiss." Terry said joking and grinning at her.

"Isn't she cute." Heather said bouncing her little.

"We'll see you all later, afterwards." Heather said as she left carrying Jackie in her arms.

Jackie refused to say much these days. She limited herself to only saying simple words toddlers would use. Seemed she was ready for her role-play as a daughter to Heather for short periods at a time.

"I think you're going to have fun growing up in a daycare environment." Heather said as they enter the house.

"Last chance, hun." Heather said reaching over with her hand to the side of changing table where the fully assembled marble was laying. Quite recently the hourglass fused back as a whole again.

Jackie only pointed to the hourglass then jumped a bit.

"I wish Jackie was 5 years-old." Heather said then undoing the tabs on her diaper.

Jackie grinned as she felt her body grow. Heather reached for her hand and let Jackie hold onto her finger. The tiny infant's hand held onto the finger until her entire hand could easy gasp her hand.

"Mommy, When will the daycare open?" Jackie asked in a fake, but very cute voice.

"Soon enough." Heather said rolling her eyes at Jackie's joke.

"Shame you won't have so many adventures." Heather said as she helped Jackie down off the table.

"Don't know about that. Our daycare won't be open for the entire year." Jackie said grinning as Heather helped her down off the table.

"I am sure we'll both get into loads of trouble." Heather said as she started to dress Jackie.

"You know one day you're going to have to grow up either the normal way or the hourglass." Heather said as a statement.

"Maybe, but if I ever do at least I'll have family now." Jackie said smiling.

"The only thing I am dreading is how much trouble is going to come our way now." Heather said as she helped Jackie into bed.

"Don't know, but should be fun." Jackie said grinning.

"Good night little troublesome terror." Heather said then lightly kissing Jackie on the forehead. Jackie in a strange way had become like family now to both of the Field sisters.

'Til the next day.' Jackie thought as she drifted off sleep and wonder what was next.

The End for now.
