Chapter 4 - Shopping, With a Twist
As Tails left his workshop, he decided to fly back to the train station rather than walk all the way. It was one thing to be stuck in diapers 24/7, but he sure didn’t want any chafing down there. When Tails got to the station, he boarded the next train to town and took his seat. Fortunately there weren’t many people on board, everyone had already gone to work so there were plenty of empty seats. As the train headed off, Tails began to think about how Ebony might’ve been behind his recent “accidents”, however his train of though was cut short when he heard a familiar voice calling his name.
“Yo Tails, what’s up man?” Knuckles said coming to sit next to Tails.
“Oh uh, hi Knuckles. What’re you doing here?” Tails asked nervously as he nonchalantly draped his tails over his lap to hide the diaper bulge.
“Just headed into town to pick up a few things, and you?” Knuckles said as he picked up a newspaper.
“Oh just going back home after some work in the lab, hey shouldn’t you be guarding the Master Emerald though?”
“Hmm? Oh right, I called the Chaotix to look after it until I get back. Hopefully they don’t screw it up.” Knuckles said rolling his eyes.
“Thinking ahead for once I see.” Tails said chuckling a bit.
“Yup, I final-hey what’s that supposed to mean!?” Knuckles asked a little miffed as Tails continued to snicker away.
“Oh nothing, just that you are a pretty crummy guardian.”
“Hey! I always end up getting the Master Emerald back!”
“Yeah, after it gets stolen for the fiftieth time.”
“Oh shut up! I’d like to see you sit in front of a rock every day.”
“Sounds like a blast.” Tails said sarcastically.
After a few minutes of conversation, the train finally came to its first stop.
“Well this looks like my stop, see you around Knucklehead!” Tails said getting up with a slight crinkle from his diaper.
“See ya!” Knuckles waved as Tails walked out of the train with a slight waddle. The heck was that about? You’d think he had a pillow between his legs or something. Knuckles shrugged it off and went back to reading his paper.
Before heading home, Tails quickly stopped by the station’s bathroom to check on his diaper. He took off his glove and slid a couple fingers down the front to check how wet it was.
“Looks like I’m only a little damp, I should probably get home now.”
After Tails checked his diaper he decided to fly home rather than waddle all the way there, and after a couple minutes of flying he got about a block away from his house and walked the rest of the way there.
“Mom! Dad! I’m home!” Tails called as he walked into his house.
“Oh there you are Miles! I was wondering when you would get home.” Rosemary said coming around the corner.
“Sorry, I kind of slept in a little longer than usual.”
“Well, you could at least call us so we know when you’ll be home. Oh and before I forget, your father needs your help with something in the garage.” Rosemary said as she went back into the kitchen to make dinner.
“Tell him I’ll be up in a couple minutes, I just have to put my stuff away.” Tails said running downstairs, crinkling with every step.
Once Tails got into his room, he pulled the remaining diapers out of his bag and shoved them to the back of his closet. He carefully untaped the diaper from his waist, slid on one of his Pull-Ups, and tossed the partially damp diaper into the closet. After hiding his stash behind some boxes, Tails went back upstairs to help his dad.
“So, uh, you needed my help with something dad?” Tails asked bending down to see what he was doing.
“Oh there you are Miles! I was hoping you’d get home soon.” Amadeus said as he came out from under the car. “Been having a little trouble with the car this morning. Say, you’re good with this type of stuff; you think you could take a look at it?”
“Sure thing dad! Just let me get my tools.” Tails said as he walked over to get his toolbox.
After about 15 minutes of messing with the car Tails finally emerged with a few oil and grease spots on his face and clothes.
“Well it looks like the battery is just dead.”
“Really? I tried jumping it and that didn’t work.” Amadeus said scratching his head.
“Maybe you should get some gas first, the tank’s empty.” Tails stated in a bit of an annoyed voice.
“Oh, hehe, woops. Suppose I should’ve checked that first. Sorry about that.” Amadeus said nervously chuckling.
Tails let out a sigh and looked at his clothes. “Great, now I have to get some clean clothes and wash my face off.
“Looks like I’ll need some clean clothes too huh? Just make sure you’re done before dinner.”
Tails went back to his room and took off his dirty clothes until he was just in his Pull-Up which was still dry fortunately. After putting on a clean pair of clothes, Tails went into the bathroom to wash his face off, when suddenly his stomach growled and started cramping up. Tails nearly doubled over from the pain but soon had the realization that this wasn’t a regular stomach cramp. He quickly rushed over to the toilet, pulled his pants down, Pull-Up and all, and let everything go.
After what seemed like forever, Tails let out a sigh of relief, started cleaning himself up and pulled his pants back on.
“Ugh that was horrible! It feels like my butt is on fire now.” Tails said as he rubbed his backside a bit. “At least I made it to the toilet though, a Pull-Up definitely wouldn’t have held all of that in.”
“Miles! Dinner’s ready!” Rosemary called from upstairs.
“I’ll be right up mom!” Tails called as he opened the bathroom door.
“You were down there for a while, something wrong sweetie?” Rosemary asked as Tails took his place at the table.
“Hmm? Oh nothing, must’ve had something bad for breakfast is all. So, what’re we having for dinner?”
“Well if you say so, we’re having macaroni and cheese, I just hope your tummy isn’t upset anymore.” Rosemary said as she ruffled Tails’s hair a bit.
“Mom, I’m not a little kid anymore, I’m perfectly fine now.” Tails said a little annoyed.
“I know I know.” Rosemary said as she went back to her seat.
“So, you guys said you’re leaving tomorrow right?” Tails asked between bites.
“Actually,” Amadeus started, “we were planning on leaving tonight, the guys want to meet up for dinner before we head out. Oh and before I forget, they had to extend the event so we’ll be gone a little longer than we had planned.”
“How much longer exactly?” Tails asked.
“Another week, so you’ll have to put up with being babysat for 2 weeks. Think you’ll be okay for that long?” Rosemary told Tails.
“I’ll be okay, but who are you getting to watch me?”
“Well I called that one girl, oh what was her name again honey?” Rosemary asked her husband.
“Ebony Gale, she seems like such a nice girl.”
“Oh that’s right, anyways, she said she could look after you for a while. She said that she might be busy on some days so Vanilla and her will switch every few days.”
“Wait, if Vanilla agreed to watch me, then does that mean she’ll bring Cream along too?” Tails asked.
“Most likely, it’ll be easier for her to look after both of you at the same time. Besides, you and Cream used to have so much fun playing together.” Rosemary said as she started to clean up the table.
“But that was when we were little, plus she’s 2 years younger than me. And besides, what if she finds out about, that.” Tails said almost whispering the last part.
“Oh you don’t have to worry about that, I told Vanilla all about your bedwetting and she told me that Cream still wets the bed too, so you won’t have to hide anything from them.”
“Well that’s a relief.” Tails said sarcastically.
After dinner, Tails went back down to his room, changed into a new diaper, and turned on his videogame console. For the rest of the afternoon, Tails played Super Smash Bros. with Sonic online. Once it came to be around 4:00 in the afternoon, Rosemary and Amadeus were about ready to leave so Tails worked his way upstairs to see them off.
“I called Ebony about 10 minutes ago, she should be here sometime between 4:30 and 5:00 okay? If anything goes wrong my cellphone number is on the fridge so you can give us a call.” Rosemary told Tails as they were getting ready to leave.
“Okay, I’ll make sure to call you every other day.”
“Well, I guess we’ll be off then. See you in 2 weeks Miles.” Rosemary said giving Tails a hug before they left.
Once his parents’ car was out of sight, Tails decided to relax a bit so he took off his pants and watched tv in just a shirt and diaper until Ebony arrived. Once it got to around 4:45, Tails heard a knock on the door. Just to be safe, he peeked out the window just to see who it was before he opened the door wearing nothing but a shirt and a diaper. Upon seeing that it was none other than the black and red vixen herself, Tails quickly went over to open the door for her.
“Well hey there squirt,” Ebony said as she entered the house, “I take it you were relaxing eh?”
“Yup, just taking it easy.” Tails said as he patted the front of his diaper. “Oh that reminds me, I don’t suppose you have any more of these, cause I’m kind of running on the last couple.”
“Well, I’d have to head over to the store to get some more.” Ebony said as she was putting her stuff down. “Ooo, that gives me an idea! Why don’t you come along with me?”
“Yeah! Plus you could pick out your own diapers this time, they’ve got a whole bunch of different types and designs!” Ebony said starting to get excited.
“I don’t know, what if someone I know sees us?”
“Oh you won’t have to worry about that, this store isn’t exactly your average Walmart. It’s a little more, ‘specialized’ in the things they sell.”
“Okay, but if we’re gonna be leaving then I’m at least putting a pair of pants on first.” Tails said as he walked over to the couch and grabbed his pants.
“Alrighty then, ready to head out?”
“I suppose, are we taking a bus or something?”
“Nope, something a LOT better than that.” Ebony smirked as she walked over to a red Camaro.
“You have a Camaro!? How can you afford all of this?” Tails asked stunned.
“Well, my parents were pretty well off and when they died all of their money went straight to my brother and me. Of course we didn’t get the money until we were older, but our adoptive parents were as shocked as we were.”
“Wait, you have a brother? And you’re adopted?”
“Yup we’re twins, and he’s in the same crinkle party as us too. And yeah, our birth parents died when we were about 2 years old.” Ebony explained as they got into the car.
“Wow, that’s crazy.”
“Yeah. But hey, enough about that! We’ve got some shopping to do.” Ebony said perking right back up as she drove the car onto the street.
After about 15 minutes of driving, the 2 foxes eventually made it to a decently sized store off the main stretch.
“And here we are.” Ebony said as they pulled into the parking lot.
“ABDL Inc.? The heck does that mean?” Tails asked as he hopped out of the car.
“Oh you’ll see.” Ebony said as she got out of the car.
The 2 walked into the store and Tails couldn’t help but stare at how big and colorful it was.
“Wow, I don’t think I’ve seen a store this colorful since mom made me go with her to go shopping for baby stuff for one of her friends.” Tails remarked still looking around the front.
“Funny you should mention that.” Ebony said chuckling a bit as they headed into the first isle.
“Why’s that?” Tails asked as he noticed the clothes hanging in the isle. “They look like footie pajamas, only bigger. And are those onesies?! They look like they were made for adults!”
“That’s because they are! I told you that this place was specialized in what they sell. By the way, I don’t suppose you’ve ever heard of the terms AB or infantilism?”
“Actually yeah, I came across some threads while browsing the internet. I didn’t know they had whole stores like this to buy stuff from.” Tails said looking around in sheer awe.
“Yup, not too many of them around for obvious reasons though. But we’re just here for some diapers and changing supplies right? No need to browse through the baby stuff, unless you want to.” Ebony said leaning in close to Tails.
Tails blushed a little bit at the thought. “Well, I don’t know. Besides, none of these are in my size anyways.”
Ebony chuckled a little at Tails’s embarrassment and continued to keep walking. “Oh I’m sure they do, they’re probably just back in a different section.”
“You sure seem to know where you’re going, it’s like a maze in here.” Tails said as his stomach growled a bit.
“Sure do, I’ve been here more times than I can count. You okay back there?”
“I’m fine, although I think I’ll be needing a new diaper in a minute or 2.”
“Well try to hold it until we at least get to the…oh wait I guess we’re here already.” Ebony said as they reached the diaper section. “Alright, which ones do you want?”
Tails went over to the literal wall of diapers and stared at it for a minute until a lady came up to him.
“Why hello there, I don’t believe I’ve seen you here before. Is there something I can help you with?”
Tails stammered a bit until Ebony intervened.
“We’re looking to get him some good quality diapers, do you have anything in mind Ms. Jeanson?”
“Ms. Jeanson? Wait, you know each other?” Tails asked a little confused.
“Of course! Why Ebony is one of the regulars here, well her and her brother. I suppose you could say I’ve become a family friend of sorts. Plus I just so happen to be the owner of this plush establishment.” The middle aged woman said as she hugged Ebony. “How do YOU know her though?”
“I’m babysitting him off and on for the next 2 weeks, he took a liking to me the first time so I suppose we kind of connected.” Ebony said as she ruffled Tails’s hair.
“Well that’s nice to hear, now as for the diapers.” Ms. Jeanson said turning to the shelves. “Are you wearing for nighttime use, daytime, fetish?”
“All 3," Tails admitted shyly, "and not just mild use either so you’d better find some heavy duty diapers.” Tails said putting a hand on his stomach which was growling again.
“Well I think these would be in your best interest, I hope you don’t mind prints though.” Ms. Jeanson said handing him a pack with designs of little planes and clouds on them.
Tails was about to make a comment when his bowels decided to give way making the back of his pants sag a little.
“Whew, somebody made a stinky!” Ms. Jeanson said as she waved her hand in front of her face.
“Man life kid, what did you eat this morning?” Ebony gagged as she held her nose.
“Sorry.” Tails said blushing again.
“Well then,” Ms. Jeanson said as she took the pack of diapers out of Tails’s hands “I think somebody desperately needs a diaper change before we continue. Why don’t you come with me sweetie?” Ms. Jeanson asked as she took hold of Tails’s hand.
“Go where, exactly?”
“We have a changing room just around the corner, you can get these paid for once we get you all cleaned up.” She said leading Tails to another part of the store.
“Wait, you’re going to change me?”
“Of course I am, and I can’t imagine you’d want to be stuck in a messy diaper for more than a few minutes.”
Tails was led into another room at the back of the store which looked an awful lot like a baby’s nursery.
“Sorry to ask this, but you’re gonna have to strip down to your diaper. You can keep your shirt on, but the pants and shoes will have to come off."
Tails nodded and slipped his shoes and pants off.
“Hop up here and lay down please.” Ms. Jeanson motioned Tails towards a large changing table.
Tails did as he was told and laid down on the plastic table. He didn’t know how many times he had blushed in the last few minutes, but this time he could certainly feel his face getting warm.
“Don’t you worry your little head off, I’ve changed my fair share of diapers before, and not just baby diapers you know.” Ms. Jeanson winked as she untaped his diaper.
Tails didn’t respond but only kept blushing as Ms. Jeanson went about lifting his legs and cleaning his bottom off. As soon as his bottom was cleaned off, she tossed the diaper and wipes in the trash, grabbed a fresh diaper along with some baby powder and lotion, and changed Tails into the new diaper.
“And we’re done!” She said as she put the last tape into place. “Now that wasn’t so bad was it?”
“N-no,” Tails stammered “t-thanks.”
Ms. Jeanson gave Tails a sweet smile as he started to pull his pants back up.
“Hey, why aren’t my pants fitting anymore?” Tails said as he struggled to get the pants over the bulk of the new diaper.
“Hmm, I’m afraid that since these diapers are the ‘heavy duty’ class that they’re a fair bit thicker than the one you wore in here. It’s fine though, you won’t get into any trouble in here by walking around in just a shirt and diaper, so long as you keep your padding on though.”
“But I still have to get home, don’t you have some bigger pants?” Tails said starting to get a little worried.
“Well, you could always look in the clothing area. Although I suppose you’d have to make due with what’s there.” She said as they walked back to where Ebony was waiting.
“I was afraid you’d say that.”
“Aww you look so cute now.” Ebony said as Tails walked up to her.
“S-shut up! Come on, I need to find something to cover this up.” Tails said motioning to his diaper.
Ebony grabbed a nearby shopping cart and piled 5 packs of Tails’s new diapers into it. “That should hold him out for a while, 64 diapers per pack ain’t half bad either.”
Ms. Jeanson led the 2 to the kids’ clothing section. “Take as much time as you want, hopefully you can find something to your liking.” She then left to take care of other business.
Tails looked around but all he could find was a bunch of onesies and footie pajamas, which were actually in his size. Tails picked up a yellow onesie and sleeper just out of curiosity and felt the soft material.
“Watcha got there?” Ebony said looking over his shoulder.
“Oh, uh, I was just looking-”
“You know, those would go great with your new diapers.” Ebony said cutting him off and snatching them from him before he could put them back.
Tails sighed and kept looking until he saw what looked like jeans folded up on some shelves. He quickly waddled over, picked a pair up, only to find out that it was actually overalls.
“That’s probably the best you’re gonna find here, at least there’s only a little plane on the front. Other than that they look fairly normal.” Ebony said trying to sound optimistic.
“I guess you’re right, at least they’re not overly babyish.”
As the 2 headed up to the front, Ebony picked up plenty of changing supplies such as baby powder, wipes, lotion, and rash cream and piled them into the cart as well. It took a couple minutes for everything to go through the checkout, but fortunately the store wasn’t terribly busy today. After Ebony paid for everything, Tails took his new “pants” and headed to the back of the store to change into them.
“Just don’t take too long.” Ebony called after him.
As she was turning around something caught her eye. She walked over to the end of the nearest isle and saw that there were some pacifiers on sale. She got a little grin on her face, swiped 2 of them, and quickly went back to the checkout to pay for them.
Tails made it back to the checkout where Ebony was waiting for him.
“I feel like a toddler.” Tails stated flatly.
“Well you look like one too, it’s pretty obvious you’ve got some serious padding going on down there.” Ebony said giving Tails a pat on the butt. “But hey, at least you look cute!”
“Stop saying that. Let’s just get back home, I’m getting hungry.”
“We could stop somewhere on the way.” Ebony suggested.
“NO! I’m not hungry enough to publicly humiliate myself!”
“Okay okay, guess that Happy Meal will have to wait.” Ebony said as they left the store.
“You 2 have a good one!” Ms. Jeanson called after them
“You too Ms. J!” Ebony called back.
Little to Tails’s knowledge, Ebony was going to give him one heck of a surprise once they got back to his home.
