The Ray

The Ray By J.P.

As a scientist I was not especially famous, but I was definitely more successful than most that I knew. Selling several groundbreaking patents had left me very rich. Rich enough to leave the stifling university and pursue my theories on my own. I had bought a large mansion with a fully equipped laboratory, indoor pool, and a complete staff providing all the service I needed. I also brought with me my some time lover and full time lab assistant Shirley MacKenzie. Once on my own I produced a few more inventions and published a few essays to keep my fortune. My main pursuit was purely selfish though.

Ever since I was little I had fantasies and, I must admit, a mania for rapid weight gain. Early cartoons initially fueled my imagination and then later it was stories on various special websites. I had always wanted to be able to fatten up others at my will. Feeding was intriguing and certainly was an avenue I pursued on occasion. Ultimately, though feeding was too slow. I wanted something that would produce near instantaneous results. I also wanted to ensure the health and safety of the recipient, but allow nearly limitless expansion. No easy task.

Shirley was great help. I think she shared in my fantasy to some extent. It took years to finally come up with a plan that could work. It takes 3500 calories to gain a pound of fat. We get those calories through a chemical change called digestion. My idea was to make that change from a chemical one to plain energy absorption. I would make an energy beam that would be directly absorbed and stored as fat. Since a carrier wave (an energy beam) can hold a lot more calories than mere food it could produce huge results with just a little contact. The main problem then would be in temporarily changing a body’s energy source and then changing it back.

I tackled the problems with gusto. It involved using specific wavelengths of energy to change the body initially and then add the energy and finally change the body back. The main changes that would stay would be an appropriate growth of the heart and lungs in order to maintain bodily respiration and the skin would become far more elastic to allow room for safe expansion. The beauty of this idea was that theoretically the body would experience no health problems that one might have from gradual weight gain. No high blood pressure, no high cholesterol or triglicerides. All of these come from one’s diet and genes. This was pure energy and wouldn’t cause those problems. Further if my theory was correct the person’s appetite wouldn’t change, because the stomach wasn’t growing. After more than seven years of research and testing I was finally able to test it on a person rather than lab mice. Shirley agreed as long as it would be a mild increase. I assured her it would only be enough to gather test information so I could calibrate it for field use.

The device looked like something off of Star Trek. It was tubular in design, similar to a flashlight, with wires and tubes running along its length. At the business end was a small crystal and at the handle was a simple button. Just depress the button and the process would start. The longer you held it down the more energy would be released. As Shirley made herself ready I toyed with the idea of betraying the trust she obviously had in me by truly fattening her up. In the end though science won out over loyalty. I needed only a slight fattening to gather test data; I would save greater fattenings for others more deserving.

Shirley came into the lab wearing a loose robe. Underneath she had on a bikini a few sizes bigger than normal. “Are you ready?” I asked as she came forward and stood in the test circle I had drawn for her. She nodded her head with a little nervousness. “And you weighed yourself?”

“Yes Jim, 140 lbs. And I’m 5'7” tall with measurements of 36-28-30" she said in anticipation of my next question.

“Excellent, disrobe please so I can attach these electrodes.” She took off her robe and handed it to me. Using some adhesive I attached electrodes to areas on her body that were fat collectors; stomach, abdomen, breasts, buttocks, thighs, forelegs, arms and back. These would monitor the gains and also prove my theory that the fat would accumulate in areas it’s naturally inclined to accumulate at. In Shirley’s case I anticipated she would gain most in her belly and breasts, followed by her hips and buttocks.

“Shirley I would like to bring you up to 200 pounds. That should be enough to give me the data I need. Is that acceptable?” I asked as I plugged the electrode wires into my computer.

She thought for a moment and shrugged. “If that’s what you need Jim.” Shirley was indeed a fine assistant.

“Excellent. Very well Shirley I shall begin. If you experience any discomfort let me know immediately and I’ll stop the test. Step up onto the scale. When it reaches 200 lbs., I’ll turn it off.” She gingerly stepped onto the scale. As she did I picked up the “Fat Ray” and pointed it at her, relishing in the idea that my fantasy was soon to come true. She closed her eyes and I took that as the signal to begin. I thumbed the button and there was a slight hum and vibration from the device and then a faint orange ray emitted from the crystal, striking her on her relatively flat stomach.

She ‘oohed’ softly. This was due to the hormonal changes going on, it should have been quite pleasant. Looking at the monitors confirmed that she was changing, but not in any danger. After perhaps ten seconds the ray became more of a yellowish color. This signaled that her body was ready to absorb energy directly, and she began to do so. The change was unnoticeable at first, except for the slowly increasing numbers on the scale. It was working! Her weight was increasing, climbing at almost a pound every other second.

“I can feel it Jim! I can actually feel it! It’s nice and soothing like a warm bath! Am I gaining?” She asked excitedly.

“Open your eyes and see for yourself.” I said.

She hesitantly opened her eyes and looked in the full-length monitor, which displayed her increasing weight and expanding body. It was just as I thought. She gained in the torso mainly. Her belly was expanding and folding over itself with soft flab, the skin stretching easily and without marks or blemishes. Her breasts increased also, filling the cups of her too-big top. Finally her hips and buttocks caught up, swelling outward into soft globes, but still remained behind her inflating belly. She looked marvelous and I could barely contain my excitement and lust. I was so excited that I over shot the mark. I realized she was up to 204 pounds and quickly took my thumb off of the button. The ray turned orange and then shut off after a few seconds. I was worried when she continued to gain, but she stopped at 207 pounds. We both looked at the monitor with undisguised lust and it was all I could do to keep myself from ravaging her right then and there, but science came first. I entered the newly accumulated data into the computer before Shirley and I explored her body much more intimately.

She gained 67 pounds in 6 minutes and 27 seconds. Her new measurements were 38-42-38. She carried the weight well. She said it only took a little getting used to. Over the next months as I modified the ray I kept careful watch on her to make sure that there were no complications or side effects. The only thing we noticed was that the pounds were difficult to shed even with diet and exercise. Personally I didn’t think that was a problem at all. Her health was excellent and our sex life was fantastic.

The ray underwent some changes. The ray itself became infrared, so as to be invisible to the naked eye. I would wear a specially designed set of sunglasses to see the ray and aim it properly. I also changed the outer design to look like a mere laser pointer, so it was inconspicuous and small. I added a targeting laser so I could be sure of my aim before I began the weight gain ray. I also fine-tuned the weight gain controls so I could increase the speed of the gain to up to ten pounds a second. Finally I made a sort of semi automatic burst mode which would give a brief intense burst of energy to the target. The energy was pre-set by me so that I could strike someone with the ray and then target someone else. The original target would gain until the pre-set weight was achieved even though the ray was no longer on them. I could thus get many people simultaneously. I was ready to greet the world and leave it fatter in my passing.

I intended to start the day with my usual morning swim, but Shirley informed me that the pool was being repaired today. This annoyed me slightly, but I recovered quickly, resolving to take out my frustration on someone truly deserving. I started the day with a walk. As I left my driveway and headed up the street I noticed my young neighbor Gina. She was sunbathing in the front yard early in the morning, wearing a tiny bikini and listening to her walk man. She was lying on her stomach and had the top of her two piece undone so as to make sure her back didn’t have tan lines. She didn’t see or hear me as I walked past her yard and came to a stop about ten yards from her. Her head was facing the house so she wouldn’t be able to see me unless she looked back. This was too tempting a target.

I pointed the ray at her and turned the switch to a medium weight gain, and let the ray fall on her back and buttocks. I couldn’t hear her response, perhaps she was sleeping, but the effects became obvious soon enough. It initially seemed like she was rising off of the ground through levitation. That was because her breasts and belly were increasing, pushing her further from the ground. Her ass meanwhile spread and widened delightfully. It was stretching the bottom to her two piece and soon was expanding out of it, the material riding further and further into her crotch. Her belly was also expanding to the sides and even into her back, causing creases and folds of flesh to form. Her legs and thighs were also plumping nicely, gaining width and girth as I let the ray feed her more and more energy. Her arms had already started to sag with flab as she raised one to adjust the bottom of her suit. I turned the ray off at this point and hid so I could continue to observe her. She reached the suit and then froze as her hand began to blindly grope and explore her vast and still expanding flesh. I was surprised that she was still gaining. Then it occurred to me that the ray may have been magnified by the fact that she was also absorbing solar energy. She probably gained ten or so pounds more than I expected. A good thing to remember in the future.

At this point she sat up in shock knocking her sunglasses off of her head and yanking the headphones off. One arm reflexively went to cover her breasts only to discover that they were huge, and that one arm was hopelessly inadequate for the task. I estimated she weighed close to 250 lbs., and her measurements probably tripled. She screamed in shock as she saw the vast expanse of flesh she had mysteriously gained. I was pleased as pie. I set the burst mode for another hundred pound gain and fired again, then walked away, listening to her chorus of shouts and screams as she inexplicably got fatter still. The device was all I had hoped for.

At the end of the block I turned right and headed toward the town proper. After a few more blocks I was passing the local junior high. It was perhaps ten in the morning and recess was in progress. I slowed down and watched with curiosity as the children played. That was when I saw a scene that reminded me of my own troubled youth. A group of boys were picking on a rather chubby young girl. As a child I was picked on for my intellect and strangeness, not weight, but I sympathized with the young girl. I hesitated in turning the ray on children, they couldn’t have been more than 12 or 13, but I also realized that this was exactly the reason I invented the ray. It was the perfect instrument for revenge in a situation like this. With renewed purpose I began setting the ray for the burst mode. For most of the boys I decided that a three hundred pound weight gain would be appropriate, but for the leader who reminded me very much of Brad, the persecutor from my child hood, no less than a five hundred pound weight gain would be sufficient.

I aimed at the boy who was holding her books playing “keep-away” from the portly girl. Then I moved down the line, but didn’t hit the leader “Brad”. I had to reset the ray, and I wanted to linger on him a bit.

I was a bit far away so I saw a commotion among them before I noticed any results. The other boys and the girl pointed to the first boy as they noticed him beginning to change, then fingers began shifting to others as they too began to change. Now I could see them all swelling and bulging as they gained weight at ten pounds a second. Their shirts came untucked and their shorts and pants stretched and then burst, as they grew fatter and fatter. Now other children gathered around to watch and I hit “Brad” with the ray before I he was obscured from view. This was my biggest weight gain yet so I was particularly interested in how it would affect him. I was too far away to hear anything except indistinct shouts and cries, but it was obvious that all of the boys were rapidly gaining weight. From what I could see they seemed to becoming almost completely round. Their short bodies swelling and expanding outwards rather than gaining flab. I attributed this to the fact that their bodies were still developing, and that their skin was so young and resilient. It took only thirty seconds for the main boys to reach their weights of probably around four hundred pounds, but it took “Brad” almost a full minute. The smaller boys had fallen onto their sides, backs or bellies after about 15 seconds and proceeded to swell and expand, becoming large pink spheres once they burst out of their clothing. Most were as wide as they were tall, and even from where I was the fat looked firm and round. “Brad” raced right past his partners in crime falling first on his butt and then his back. His belly kept rising and his sides kept widening until I thought he might actually pop. He finally stopped when he seemed to be half-again wider than he was tall. He had to weigh at least 600 pounds. The other children in typical fashion had gathered around and were poking the boys and trying to roll them about, some were even hopping on top of “Brad”. Obviously this gang of boys were not very popular. Teachers soon arrived and I slinked away, hearing ambulance sirens in the background heading towards the school.

I decided to do one more fattening today. If I wasn’t careful I could be implicated just by the fact that I was present at all of the episodes. I wanted this last fattening to be monumental. I waited for the right opportunity at a sidewalk caf. Fate seemed to be smiling on me today, a parade began passing by and I had great seat to watch the festivities.

I kept my eyes on the parade enjoying the sights and music when much to my shock and dismay I saw one of my former students, Jane Ashland! She had been a freshman when I first met her and I always detested her. She was so snotty and arrogant and vain. She was a constant annoyance in class with her mocking voice and scathing looks. Now here she was close to ten years later the princess of the parade. Jane had obviously won a contest or beauty pageant. She was beautiful. Blond hair, darling figure, packed into a tight designer dress and a beautiful face when it wasn’t sneering at you in disdain. She couldn’t have weighed more than 110 pounds. I would change that. This was just too perfect. She was on top of decorated platform all by herself with an arch of flowers over her head that proclaimed her “Miss Missouri” as she was slowly pulled by a pick up truck as she waved to the crowd.

Without a moment’s hesitation I turned the ray on to maximum and fired a continuous beam at her. She noticed nothing at first, but seemed to fan her face slightly as the energy coursed into her. Then came the slight bulges in her belly and ass, followed by her breasts. Some people began to notice and were rubbing their eyes to see if they were seeing correctly. Jane nervously adjusted her dress as it began to get tight all over. That was when she first realized what was happening. She looked down just as the first tear ripped up the thigh of her dress. Then the V at the front began to stretch and tear as her breasts began to overflow its design limits. Then the dress began to tear all over as her form seemed to double in size before everyone’s shocked gaze.

“Help! Someone do something!” She cried. The only thing anyone did was take pictures. The truck stopped despite her frantic pleas that they hurry and get her out of here. She was completely out of her dress now as she most likely passed two hundred pounds. Her breasts were flabby and hung low onto her growing stomach, while her hips grew wider and wider, giving her a pear like shape. Her ass gained the most though as it swelled behind her like twin balloons. She couldn’t hold herself up anymore and she fell to a sitting position as I kept the ray trained on her. The battery still had plenty of energy so I decided to push the limits and drain it completely into her. She swelled and bloated as the energy surged into her and was instantly transformed into fat. Her ass seemed to gain the most at first and she steadily rose higher and higher. Her face became much more appealing as the fat accumulated giving her a round cherubic face and melting away her typical sneer. When she was more than five hundred pounds by my calculations, her belly and breasts took the lead in gaining. They were already huge. Her stomach lay between her lap, and was a great soft pillow of marble white skin. Her breasts were huge and floppy dangling to either side of her mammoth belly and grew bigger still as her ass stopped taking most of the weight and diverted it other areas. The crowd gasped in awe wondering how big she could actually get. It was then that I noticed a TV camera catching everything. The battery was still pretty full so I pressed on eagerly watching her much-deserved fate.

When she had to weigh more than a thousand pounds, the ray began to falter. At this point it was difficult to tell whether she was sitting or lying down. She had accumulated so much fat on her thighs and ass and back that they seemed to merge into one huge cushion of fat that she rested on. Her belly almost completely covered her legs down to the ankles and her breasts were probably two feet long and equally plump. Her frantic waving and struggling had long ceased once her heavy breasts pinned her arms to her enormous sides. Her arms were probably more than sixty inches around, her legs (if you could see them) easily twice that. I kept that ray on her.

She gained steadily until she weighed by my calculations of the energy output, more than 1800 pounds. Close to a ton. The battery gave out probably at 1400 pounds, but she continued to gain from the residual after affect. She was truly huge. I was amazed that the platform hadn’t collapsed. Her body seemed to become one massive fleshy bag of fat. Individual features were difficult to make out as every part of her was saturated and fattened to the utmost. Her bodily mass looked as if it melted together to produce a flesh colored mound. Her head and face was the most readily identifiable part of her, mainly because of the flowing blond hair. Her face was extremely cute, fat and piggish her dainty features seemed tiny compared to the hugeness of her jowls. I took my leave at this point, confident that I would be able to watch the aftermath on TV at home.

I was indeed correct and watched with some glee how the newly fattened victims had to be rolled into flatbed trucks, or hoisted with a crane in Jane’s case. All were taken to the hospital where they were pronounced healthy, but otherwise the doctors were baffled. Shirley and I made love several times that night while replaying Jane’s fattening.

I awoke to quite a shock. I was trying to turn over in my dazed slumber when I discovered that I couldn’t. I quickly woke up completely to find that my wrists were tied to either bedpost and so were my legs. As I looked about in confusion I finally saw Shirley in the doorway holding the ray in her hands. “Sh-Shirley? What are you doing?” I stammered as she pointed the ray at me without saying a word. I felt but couldn’t see the ray hit me in the stomach. A slight internal tingling came over me for a few seconds and then warmth spread all about me. “No Shirley! Not me! No!” I cried but could already feel my body swelling under the ray’s power.

“Jim you know this what you’ve always wanted.” Shirley said matter of factly as she kept the ray pointed at me. I could feel my body expanding and stretching as my belly inflated and began to block my view. I couldn’t help but think she might be right. That maybe all along this was what I truly wanted, but how did she know? “You talk in your sleep.” She said as if she could hear my silent question. I continued to expand at a tremendous rate. Realizing that what she said was true I shudderingly asked her how fat she would make me. “Jim, numbers won’t do justice to how fat you’ll get. Just relax and enjoy it. This has always been my fantasy. I’ve always wanted to fatten someone up and take care of them, and now I’ve got my chance.”

I lay there for minutes. I couldn’t move my head anymore as the weight and force of my chins pinned it the bed. I could only see my towering stomach and my huge flabby arms. The feeling finally stopped and she came over and untied my wrists and ankles. She laid my arms at my sides with some effort and I realized that I took up almost all of the bed. I thought she was done at this point and I looked up at her as if she was a caring nursemaid. That’s when I heard several other footsteps enter the room. Too shamed by my sudden change I couldn’t even speak as I saw some large men in work uniforms come in and each take a corner of the bed.

“Ok guys, take him to the pool.” Said Shirley as she left the room and led the way. I couldn’t understand why we’d be going there, it was supposed to be getting repaired. I could see looks of disgust and awe on the men’s eyes as they moved my enormous bedridden body after Shirley. The trip took almost ten minutes due to my weight and lack of maneuverability. Once we entered the pool area I didn’t smell the familiar chlorine but something like an air freshener. I could also see a large crane poised near the edge of the pool. The crane had a strong looking net at the end; I recognized it as the kind of net used to lift large animals such as livestock and marine mammals. They rolled the bed over to the edge where the net was lowered to the ground. The process of getting my body into the net took almost fifteen minutes. First they had to remove the legs on one side of the bed and then with the help of all four men lower that side to the floor slowly, so that I could just roll into the net. They were extremely careful and the transfer went off without a hitch. As I lay in the net on the floor I could see that the pool had been changed a bit. Lining all of the walls and floor of the pool was a thick cushioning plastic layer, and instead of being filled with water there seemed to be a gelatinous substance filling it to a depth of perhaps five feet. I didn’t have much time to contemplate this as I was suddenly jerked and lifted into the air by the crane. It lifted me only a few feet of the ground before it swung me over the pool towards the center of the shallow end. After another ten minutes of effort I was in the pool lying on my back, floating on the clear sludge with my head facing the shallow end. Shirley then let the men leave promising them that their check, and a bonus was already in the mail. I was really quite comfortable, just lying there like an island in the ocean. Shirley then began to set up camcorders all around the room at different angles, and set up a large screen monitor that was easily in my view despite the bulk of my belly. She turned the cameras on one by one and the monitor came to life showing me from different angles.

I was stunned and incredibly aroused despite last night’s attentions. I guessed that I weighed more than 700 pounds. I was almost pure fat. A huge ponderous gut that draped passed my knees, floppy somewhat fat breasts, hanging to either side of my stomach, and enormous elephantine legs. Shirley then stood next to the monitor with the ray in her hands.

“Like what you see Jim?” she asked. I licked my dry lips, and croaked “yes.” in a small voice. “I don’t know you still look a little skinny to me. Don’t you think?” she asked as she pointed the ray at me. I only nodded my head as she pressed the button and proceeded to make me the fattest human being in the world by far. I was thankful for the monitor otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to see my surging flesh as I expanded and expanded and still expanded. In minutes I was far larger than Jane. My body lost almost all shape as I slowly began to fill the pool. My fat body expanded along the cushioned surface at a steady rate, the gelatin keeping me cool and comfortable. I was beyond description, just a pink blob that kept expanding. The batteries ran out at one point but she just changed them and kept fattening me up. She stopped when I was finally filling the majority of the olympic sized pool. My head rested on the edge of the shallow end, cushioned by feet of flab, while the end of by belly flowed over somewhat the deep end of the pool. I was in stupefied ecstasy at my unbelievable size. I could only lay there and try to contemplate how vast I’d become. She walked over to my head and spoke to me. “This will do for now, until I can get larger accommodations.” I could only shudder in amazement that she didn’t think I was fat enough yet. Deep down inside neither did I.
