Fresh air is a pleasant change to the musty prison smell. We can’t enjoy it for long, still need to keep moving and get off the island. Benji points the way southeast to a small marina where hopefully we can find some boats. Even as strong as we’ve become, our jump range is limited and the Pacific is mighty large.
We find the island has many hidden defenses along the way. Our amazing new bodies are impervious to the mortars and flying bullets but we need to watch out for Joshua, Benji and the others. We make a protective barrier around them and move slowly towards the marina.
Back at the fortress, buried deep below, Eric begins the startup procedures and examines Benji’s settings. The machine hadn’t worked to this level of success before. What’s different? It has to do with the four girls. They’ve been the key all along. Katherine is anxious to begin and yells out as her rage swells. Everything is set within the lab as the power meter continues to rise. It hasn’t reached the level of the previous transformation but there’s only one test subject this time. Eric pulls the lever.
Katherine stands ready as the shield surrounds her and blue liquid once again rises up. A light shines down as liquid fills the tank. Katherine breaths it all in and the pain begins. Thoughts of anger fill her mind as new muscle flows through her body. The tightening of tissue and mass begins quickly and she immediately feels the change. Her lab coat expands to show a firm, rising form beneath. Peaks and valleys form throughout the fabric as hard muscle pushes through to its limits.
The pain becomes intense but Katherine takes it all in, wanting more. Fabric tears form on the lab coat as her body quickly grows too big. It falls to shreds and the dress beneath follows soon after. So much power being packed into a petite frame but that’s growing too. Eric watches Katherine become taller while her body bubbles with raw muscle and power. The last remnants of clothes shred away and she’s left wearing shear black bra & panties. They stretch with the growth and become almost see through. She continues to grow while the power level reaches zero. Her lacy bra almost snaps as the mounting muscle builds beneath it but holds tightly as transformation cycle finishes. What a perfect creature, such power!
Besides the tremendous new strength, she notices enhanced speed, agility and senses. Her rage has also grown tenfold and lashes out, smashing through the barrier. She easily picks up multi-ton lab equipment with one hand and flings it across the room at lightning speed. Metal turns to putty in her mighty grasp. Such power! Eric watches the destruction but knows any attempt to stop her is futile. “Stop!” but she continues destroying the lab. She finally turns to him and says “Katherine’s gone. I’m WildKat”.
Then she remembers the girls. The four pretty, perfect girls that Eric thinks are special. Not for long. She easily smashes through the large boulders blocking their exit and quickly clears a path through the fortress passageways. Rocks fly at sub-sonic speeds as the rage fueled WildKat makes small work of Diana’s previous deterrence. “My God, look at that power” Eric thinks as he follows behind. One of the rocks hits him, shooting him back and knocking him out cold. Katherine is oblivious and keeps moving forward.
We’ve moved slower than hoped in order to keep everyone safe from island defenses. The ocean finally comes into view and we see the Marina. It’s not very big and there are only a few outrigger canoes moored to the dock. Not exactly built for speed but I think we could give them enough paddle power reach the mainland in no time.
The ground begins to shake as we prepare for departure. It feels far off but gets closer quickly. Amanda’s enhanced senses see what’s coming before the rest of us. She takes her canoe, full with supplies and passengers and casts off with all her strength. It sails safely across the ocean without her. The rest of us do the same and send our canoes and passengers off also. The four of us stand alone on the beach ready to take on whatever’s coming.
We watch a hulking woman storm through the trees then come towards us. “My god, that’s Katherine”. She stands almost a foot taller, dripping with muscle and red with rage. We thought we were big! “You’re next” she says in a menacing voice and launches at us with blinding speed. The four of us quickly rush to meet her. Our bodies collide in a fury and Meg is sent flying back through the air. Her rock-hard body skips like a stone across the water’s surface.
Diana, Amanda and Jewel continue with powerful blows to WildKat and knock her back. Kat needs to take them one at a time and attacks fast with a deluge of blows that sends each one flying across the beach. Amanda comes back hard first but is beaten back. Diana brings a fierce second wave attack and lands a couple blows before getting thrown across the beach. Jewel comes next but the stronger WildKat makes quick work of her.
The canoes are miles from shore before they begin to slow from their mighty send off. They can hear the battle back at the island even at this distance. What’s happening there? There must be some way to help so? Everyone is in agreement about returning and they slowly row back to the island
Meg washes up on shore dripping wet and pissed off from the sucker punch. Jewel joins her side and they race towards Kat. Diana & Amanda join us and our combined might sends her sailing back. We’ve got her on the defensive but it doesn’t take long for WildKat to gain the upper hand again.
Our bodies heal quickly but her blows but still hurt like hell. Her speed and strength are incredible. Meg yells out “Enough everyone, stop” and surprisingly everyone does for a few seconds. This is the second time this happened. Could it be a power from the transformation? The effect doesn’t last long and Kat is soon back. Meg tries one more time with a direct order “Katherine, stay still” and she once again stops.
We rush to restrain her while she’s immobile. Diana grabs hold of her from behind and begins to grow, packing on even more muscle. Not only does she seem stronger, her hair and skin appear different. Her face? She looks like Katherine! Kat comes out of her trance and throws us off in a fit of rage. Diana slowly begins to look like herself again. Does she have some sort of shape-shifting ability?
Jewel wonders if she has a special power too. She searches deep within herself but nothing happens. Meg runs forward and slams into her, toppling both of them over. Amanda looks to see Meg lying on the beach but her heightened senses detect someone else there. Its Jewel but she’s invisible. They get up and Jewel looks down at her non-existent body.
The powers give them each an edge but they still need to use teamwork in order to defeat WildKat. Meg begins and uses her charm power to keep Kat still. Diana grabs a hold of her and transforms again into Kat, gaining her added strength. Jewel is still invisible and aids Diana in restraining her. Kat comes out of Meg’s trance but can’t break free. An invisible force and someone that looks like her have her pinned down. Meg and Amanda come in for the kill.
We unleash months of captivity and cruelty into Kat. Harder and harder as she begins to bleed and her bones begin to break. Diana slams her down with enough force to split open the ground. Amanda uproots a tree and swings at Kat like Babe Ruth. Meg gets in a swift powerful kick to the chest as Jewel jumps high into the air and comes down for the finishing blow. She’s left lying unconscious on the ground. We lift her up and send her flying across the island and smashing into the fortress.
We walk back to the beach and collapse near the shore. It’s over.
Joshua, Benji and the others arrive back at the island to find Meg, Diana, Jewel and Amanda unconscious near the shoreline. No sign of an enemy but the area is devastated and the girls look badly beaten. They realize they can’t stay long and begin to move the girls to the boats. Their body weight is tremendous but everyone lends a hand to lay them across the bow and outriggers. They push off and slowly row back out to sea.
It doesn’t take long before we’re awake. Must have an accelerated healing ability also. “Thank you for saving our lives” Joshua says. “I’m impressed how well you all work together and would like you to continue… with my help.” That’s about the last thing on our minds at this point. We’ve been given a great power. Do we go back to our old lives or maybe do something new and try to make a difference in the world? Our feelings are mixed. “Just think about it while you recover as my guests, I insist.” We could use a break and time to think about our future.
Time to get moving. “Hold on” shouts Meg as she dips her paddle into the ocean and the canoe rockets across the water. The other three boats follow close behind as they descend towards California.
