Flashing neon lights, the clinking of coins, bells ringing, and whistles blowing, all these barraged the senses of the Phantom Thieves as they walked through the casino floor. They’d gotten the key to the manager’s floor, they’d delivered the calling card, and now there was no turning back.
“This is it, it’s time we change my sister’s heart...” Makoto said with a look of hesitation. Ann would put a hand to her back. “This is for the best, for us and Niijima-san.” She said reassuring her comrade, who gave Ann a determined nod in response.
“The elevator to where the treasure is located is just head, we may need to be on guard for any shadows.” Yusuke interjected, looking around for spots to sneak around and avoid unnecessary confrontation.
“What the-?” Futaba shouted as she looked at the her scans of the casino.
“Hm? What’s up Futaba?” Ryuji asked.
“I don’t understand, I’m scanning the whole palace but...I can’t find a single shadow.” She said, sounding very puzzled.
“For real? They’re usually out in full force after we send a calling card.” Ryuji shouted in surprise.
“There’s nothing from here to the elevator...what should we do?” She asked just as everyone turned to their leader Joker. He would think for a moment, weigh his choices.
“...let’s go on ahead then.” He nodded. With that the Phantom Thieves made their way to the elevator.
The team of black clad rebels would cautiously walk through the floor, seeing many shadow people pulling at slots and risking it all, but none looked to be enemies.
“Be Careful, our clothes are still the same so this palace still sees us as threats.” Morganna reminded everyone.
“Oh so that’s why we have them? I just thought they looked cool.” Haru giggled as they reached the elevator.
“Ok then, let’s get the treasure.” Their newest member Akechi said, pulling out the card to get them to the manager’s floor where the treasure was held. However just before he could swipe it there would be a ding from the elevator. The thieves jumped back as the doors slid open and the shadow of Sae Niijima stepped out.
She stood alone in front of the group with a commanding presence, her yellow eyes scanning through the group and getting a good look at each and every one of them.
“My, you did well to make it this far.” She said with that eerie echo in her voice. “After so many trials, luck must really be on your side.” Ryuji was the first to step forward.
“So, you gonna fight us now? Looks like you’re the only thing standing between us and your treasure.” Everyone quickly got ready for a battle, but Sae just shook her head.
“You have it all wrong, I won’t allow any violence past this point...from either side.” She said holding out her arms to show she wasn’t carrying any weapons. “Instead, we will test your luck with a game.” She’d uncurl her fist to reveal a pair of red dice. “One game of Cho-Han, if I lose I will hand my treasure over to you myself.” Sae explained.
The group was shocked, could it really be that easy? “And what happens if we lose?” Akechi asked, trying to put his detective skill to work.
Sae just smirked at him. “Then I’ll get one of your teammates, I’ll even be nice and let you pick who it will this time.” She said seeming to be telling the truth, but there was an odd look in her eyes. The team thought for a moment before huddling up.
“Make one of us hers? What do you believe she means by that?” Yusuke asked.
“Maybe she means if we lose, she’ll brainwash who we picked?” Ryuji threw out.
“Hey, that’s not a bad thought Skull.” Ann teased. “We’ve seen it before, anyone brainwashed by an enemy will fight against us for a while.” She added.
“Well then...if that’s the case, I volunteer for the bet.” Haru raised her hand, much to the shock of the team.
“I’m honestly not as strong as everyone else, nor do I have any healing powers to aid her. So I’d be the least risk, plus you can undo it quickly, right Joker?” She looked to him.
Once more he would think about his options. “...Ok then, let’s go with Haru.” The whole team nodded in agreement before turning back to Sae, who stood there rolling the dice in her hand.
“So, ready to play?” She asked looking to Joker.
The white masked leader gave a nod as Haru stepped forward, clearly offering herself to be gambled. “A nice choice, I look forward to see what luck decides.” Sae held out her hand and looked to Joker, waiting for a bet. “...Odd!” He said with determination. Sae smirked before turning her hand and letting the dice fall down to the floor. The clattered and rolled before both landing still, their faces showing a 3 and a 1.
“Four, even. I win.” Sae grinned with devilish delight.
There would be a sigh from the team, a realization that it wasn’t going to be so easy. “Damn, guess we should get our fans ready to wake her up.” Ryuji groaned.
Suddenly two Shadow guards rose up from the floor, each coming up to Haru’s sides and quickly grabbing hold of her arms. “Huh!? What’s happening?” Haru shouted as she tried to pull away from their grasp. They were both too strong, easily lifting her up and walking over to their boss.
“What are you doing?! This isn’t a brainwashing!” Makoto shouted to her shadow sister, as Haru was held up in front of her.
“Brainwashing? Who said I was going to do that? All I said was your lost teammate would become mine, the only part I omitted was that they would be…” She’d look at Haru and then slowly, lick her lips. “My dinner.”
Haru’s eyes went wide, as did Sae’s mouth before shoving Haru’s head inside. The Phantom Thieves watched with bated breath as Sae began to swallow their teammate down into her gullet, too busy trying to process all this to even do anything. Haru shouted and squirmed to get free, but the guards kept her in place as she slipped further and further down Sae’s bulging throat, towards her waiting stomach.
“F-For real? She’s...eating her…” Ryuji said in a state of shock like the others.
“Noir!” Makoto shouted, about to rush in when another guard shot up to hold her back. It was too late though, soon Haru’s wiggling feet slipped past Sae’s painted lips, and go down her throat with a wet gulp. The team could only watch as Haru greatly expanded out Sae’s belly, becoming round and full with her struggling meal. The fishnet part of her dress catching her bloated gut, expanding with it and holding it in place.
“BUUURRRAP! Oh my, she was delicious. Her flavor reminded me of Big Bang Burger.” She chuckled as she ran her tongue across her lips for another little taste. While everyone stood there stunned and speechless, one of the Shadows picked up the dice and putting them in Sae’s hand while her other one rubbed her swollen belly, feeling Haru stir inside. “Now then. Ready to play again?” She asked, putting her hand to her mouth to suppress another belch.
“This can’t be happening, this world is crazy...but I never expected anything like this.” Futaba, the smartest of the Phantom Thieves, was struggling to wrap her brain around this.
Yusuke would be the first to snap back to reality. “Joker, play again. If we play then maybe we can win back Noir!” He shouted to wake everybody up. Sae however just shook her head.
“Sorry to tell you, but the rules of the game were that I’m only going to wager my treasure. You all can still win, but as for your friend…” She gave the wide side of her gut a hard smack. “It’s game over. I look forward to enjoying her digestion.” Sae chuckled.
“Sis...how could you…” Makoto whimpered, raising her shaking hands to her face. She was completely aghast by how cruel this version of her sister was acting.
“You BITCH!” Ann screamed out as she ran forward, she was done playing games. She may not have known Haru very long, but she wasn’t going to let a friend be lost to some shadow’s gluttony. The red leather bound thief pulled out her whip and swung it at Sae’s face. “Let her go, right now!” She cried out as it knocked back Sae’s head. Ann had to admit that it felt good seeing her take that hit dead on.
“...I thought I made it clear…” Sae moved her face back, revealing that she was able to catch the tip of the whip in her teeth. “Violence would not be permitted. You broke the rules.” She said, speaking rather well while holding the whip in place. “But thanks for being a volunteer.” Suddenly Sae pursed her lips and started to suck the whip in, slurping it up like a spaghetti noodle with the suction of a vacuum.
“No freaking way.” Ann’s eyes shot wide, too surprised to let go of her weapon, which was her downfall. Before she could react in time Sae whipped her head back, pulling Ann forward to the bloated shadow. Once she was in reach, Sae opened her mouth wide once more and engulfed the blonde thief’s head.
“Panther! No!” Morgana shouted watching as the girl he was infatuated with be savored and slurped down by the woman. Ann put up as much of a fight as she could, but Sae restrained her pounding fists as she shoved them into her mouth. The shadow moaning with pleasure as she tasted her, with a few more powerful gulps she moved down Ann’s midsection and open up to accept her rump.
Ann shouted something, either a plea for help or some cursing toward the shadow devouring her, either way she was too muffled to understand. Sae paused in the middle of her feast to pull off Ann’s boots, knowing that they would be too tough to digest without giving her a bellyache. Soon enough Sae gave Ann’s bare feet a few savoring lick before sending them down with the rest of her, greatly expanding her stomach out even further. “Oooh she was very yummy and a tad spicy too. HUUURRPP!” She waved a hand in front of her face to disperse the gas. “Now then let’s get back to the game. I’m still hungry.” Sae drummed her fingers on her gut.
Everyone stood there, not sure what to do. Ryuji gripped the handle of his bat with a grip so tight his knuckles were white under this glove, just itching to take a swing at her. “Dammit! We can’t be losing to this bullshit!” He cursed out. Yuske would put a hand to his shoulder, trying hard to stay the rational one.
“Don’t lose hope. She may claim to be keeping our friends, but if we change her heart then we may still save them.” Yusuke said before looking to Joker. “So let’s keep calm...and play her game.” He then turned to Futaba, giving her a look. Futaba nodded in understanding, quickly using her goggles to scan for any form of cheating.
Joker looked Sae dead in the eyes, he couldn’t bare to look downward and see the massive belly that held his two allies, no matter how much she was rubbing, patting, and even groping it out of sick pleasure.
“...Odd!” Joker shouted with determination, Sae smiling back at him.
“A good choice, let’s see how you fare.” She dropped the dice down, letting them roll down her belly, even thrusting forward to make them bounce off. This elicited some more kicking and squirming from her dinner. Soon they clattered down onto the floor and stop. “Now then…” Sae waddled over to them, turning to the side so she didn’t have to try to look past her huge gut. The results were 4 and 6, plain as day. “Oooh. Ten, even. I win again.” She smiled.
The Phantom Thieves felt their collective hearts sink at another loss. None of them were sure what to do, but before anyone could say anything Sae was waddling over to them. She wouldn’t bother with the shadow guards this time, sauntering over to them with glee. Her hips swayed side to side, making her hanging belly sway and slosh with each step.
“I’ll be picking my prize this time, afraid I can’t wait any longer for my main course.” Sae said, soon standing in front of Makoto, her writhing gut pushing against her. “I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time.” She licked her lips.
“S-Sis...please don’t do this…” Makoto pleaded, hoping that some part of the shadow of her sister would stop all of this madness. Unfortunately her answer came in the form of Sae grabbing Makoto’s arms and lifting her up.
“Please do your dear sister a favor and squirm a lot for me.” Sae gave Makoto’s cheek a lick before beginning to scarf her down. Makoto’s comrades could only watch as Sae had the time of her life devouring the poor honor student, moaning even louder as she took in her wonderful flavor.
Makoto kicked and screamed as her sister’s powerful gullet sucked her down inch by inch. She pleaded, begged, shouted for her to stop, but none of it worked as she was destined to be Sae’s meal and join her friend in her belly.
Sae did her best to enjoy as much of her meal as she could, but once she got to the halfway point she became rather greedy, starting to swallow her down with ferocity. Soon the Phantom Thieves watched as the the last of their Queen traveled down the shadow’s throat in a big bulge, before joining entering her now gargantuan gut. “Ooooh my, she was so divine.” Sae moaned with flavorful ecstasy. “Now you can finally help me for a change, by digesting and nourishing me.” Shadow Sae grinned, lifting up her huge belly and giving it a playful shake.
Sae lifted up her hand to suppress a belch, but was too slow. “BUURRRAAP! Mmm, do excuse me.” She said before turning and waddling back. She threw her weight over when she passed by Joker, tauntingly bumping him with her heavy belly. “Excuse me for that too.” She laughed.
Sae went over to where the dice were, dipping down with a grunt to scoop them back up in her hand. She’d turn and face them, about to say something but was interrupted by a groaning sound from her gut. Sae gave a puzzled look before giving her chest a few thumps with her fist.
“BUUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP!!” From Sae’s lips would fly out the masks of Noir, Panther and Queen, all wet with saliva and stomach juices. Hitting the floor with a splat. “Oh that feels better, guess I ate too fast.” She chuckled before holding out the dice again.
The were all starting to reach their wits end, nobody knew what to say at this point. “J-J-Joker…”Futaba stuttered. “I scanned the dice...she’s not cheating. She’s...just that lucky.” She gulped in fear. Everyone turned back to the shadow, seeing her grin with delight.
“So then, ready to play again? I’m ready for dessert.” Sae said whilst eyeing Futaba, patting her belly as though she was picking out her spot in there. The team just looked to each other, they had no other options and just how lucky could one woman be?
The next morning in the real world Sae Niijima let out a groan as she shut off her alarm and pulled herself out of bed. She slowly made her way to the bathroom to prepare for the day, but when she turned on the light she would be met with a terrifying shock. “What the hell!?” She shouted as she looked at herself in the mirror.
She saw herself, but she was much bigger. Her whole body was significantly more plump and round, but her stomach was incredibly fat, the term ‘potbelly’ was not enough for it. “I-Is this from all the take-out I’ve been ordering at work? How did I not notice how fat I was getting?” She asked herself, grabbing hold of her squishy gut. “Ugh...I just have the worst luck.”
