The digital world may be at peace with Millenniummon gone, but the digidestined took it upon themselves to patrol around the reaches of the digital world just in case another danger comes up. Kari took a stroll to the far reaches of the south lands, and found a strange forest that had trees with blue leaves. Kari and Gatomon rested under a tree near the outside, having found nothing to worry about yet... then, they heard a motherly voice.
"My my my... Visitors! How lovely~" Kari and Gatomon both looked into the forest, towards the voice. It was a high spirited voice, with notes of sultriness, and a familiar essence to it... like a mother. Out of the shade of the trees waddled a hefty formed figure. She was a Gatomon, but with black fur instead of white. There were plenty of other differences, but the most important one was the large heavy orb hanging off her front, with a large noticeable scar along the front of it, and a large golden ring hanging off her belly button. She smiled widely, holding a basket with her that was also unusually large, and had something shiny and red poking out of it. "You two must be hungry~"
Gatomon took a combat stance, tail up and her growling loudly at her polar opposite. Kari placed her hand on Gatomon's head, and pet her, to calm her down. "Uh, who are you, miss? And... what are you? I thought Gatomon all came in white, so... Are you a gatomon?"
She laughed out in a hearty chuckle, her belly bobbing with her. "Oh sorry, I didn't mean to startle you! My name is Artemis, and I am a Gatomon. A Blackgatomon in fact. I'm supposed to be the dark version of your friend there, and bitter rivals. I'm not like that, however, and I certainly didn't come here to fight." She gives a light mew as she strokes her belly, and it kicks around softly. "I'm not really in any state to fight or try to harm you. I just came to give a gift!" She set the basket down. "Here. Should be everything you need for a good night here~" Kari was about to walk over, but then Artemis took a turn, careful not to bump into a tree, and waddled off back into the forest. "Ta ta! I'll see you in the morning!"
Gatomon growled loudly again, her hair still raised all over her body. "Kari, Don't trust her. Blackgatomon ARE our opposites. They fight and kill on a whim and trick all sorts of digimon all the time! She might have set that basket up with a bomb and blew her belly up with air to-" Gatomon meeped, seeing Kari had already gotten to the basket and opened it up. "GET AWAY!" Gatomon leapt towards Kari to try and get her away... and instead whizzed right over her head as she bent down into the large basket, making her sail right into a tree head first. She mewled weakly as she flopped down with a goose egg on her head.
"Oooh! There's a lot of good stuff in here, Gatomon!" Kari dug through the basket, and found camping supplies, enough to make a tent for her and Gatomon, a large pie, some fritters, and a very large and juicy looking Apple sitting right in this basket. Kari's mouth watered as she brought up that big apple and eagerly took a big bite. The crunch was audible, and was immediatly followed by the sounds of a happy girl, who eagerly ate into it more, nearly eating the entire thing in a minute, leaving only it's core. "Mmmmmmm! It tastes like a candy apple, it's so sweet!" She pulled out the pie and fritters. "Cmon Gatomon! We need to eat!"
Gatomon walked over, rubbing her bump on her head down to nothing, and mewled. "Kari, you can't just eat things a stranger gives you, especially not-" Her eyes went wide as Kari took that moment to shove an apple fritter into Gatomon's mouth. She muffled something and tried to spit it out, but... that sweet taste filled her mouth, and had her purring, her eyes widening and a bright smile spreading across her face. "W-wow! T-t-this is so good! It's like candy!" The two then dug into the basket, and devoured the food. By that time, the sun began to set, so covered in crumbs with full bellies, they set up the camp with the supplies left in the basket, 2 large blankets and a simple tent.
The two fell asleep very quickly, their bellies pushed out a little from the amount of food they ate. They snored happily, wrapped in their blankets so snug~ Artemis purred aloud, looking at them from the forest, and smiled widely. "Such sweet little ones... and sweeter they shall be... soon~" Both Kari and Gatomon's stomachs rumbled lightly, making them shift onto their backs.
The morning swept over the land rather quickly, as it does in the digital world. The leaves on the trees glistened a light blue as the light twinkled through it. And just as quickly as the sun rose, so did a lot of surprise yelling. Artemis smiled ot herself, humming along as she waddled her way back to the stranger and her gatomon. "Girls~ I'm back to- OH!"
Kari groaned softly as she worked to heft her now large middle up onto her small frame. she had to arch her back in order to get it to stay upright honestly. It was large, heavy, and definitely wasn't there last night! Gatomon groaned herself, having done a lot of the yelling. She didn't need to heft her belly up, her strength carried it fine. Still, it was imposing on her small frame, and she couldn't help but blush as her hands grasped at it softly, feeling how firm it was. Artemis waddled over quickly, having a smaller basket with her this time.
"Oh dear! Seems the forest got to you two!" She waddled over, as both Kari and Gatomon looked to Artemis. They blushed a bit harder, their bellies fully exposed and Kari's shorts just about to snap. Artemis set her basket aside, and brought out a measuring tape. She tossed it around Kari and grasped the other side once it wrapped around, and tightened it to measure her belly. "... Wow... It... has happened to me more then a few times, but... You are BIG! And I mean BIG BIG!"
Kari looked dazed and surprised. "... Big is right! I'm HUGE! Did your apples do this!?" Artemis shook her head and was about to explain... before Kari's belly then kicked out. That solved exactly what was in her, and Artemis closed her mouth, getting that measurement as Kari's eyes went small. "... huh?"
Gatomon gasped aloud, wide eyed. "W-w-what!? What do you mean 'Like this?' Kari is HUGE! And I'm big too! So what is-" She mewled in surprise as her own belly kicked as well, bringing out a startling confusion in her. "W-what!? Did... Did you.... YOU MADE DIGIMON INTO APPLES, DIDN'T YOU! AND THEY TURNED BACK IN OUR BELLY!" Gatomon growled as Artemis measured her belly, her shaking her head.
"No, that's not it. I grow these apples in my orchard in these woods, yes... These woods are... strange. For some reason, they pick some people who come ot this forest ot be... full of life. It's... strange, because it's not eggs... It's Digimon alright, but growing in us." Artemis mewled as her belly kicked against Gatomons, making Gatomon huff as both bellies kicked to each other. Kari then gasped aloud.
"WAIT! Y-you're saying we are mommies! And we have babies in us!" Her surprise yelling gave way to a sparkle in her eyes as she gasped down at her belly, then hugged it, bringing her head to nuzzle up against it. Artemis blinked in surprise, then smiled. "Yes, that's the easy way to say it. For some reason, we grow life as babies instead of eggs... and you two were chosen too!~" She finished her measuring and mewled happily. "Come with me, dearies~ I'll take you to my home, make you some new clothes, and help you both adjust to motherhood! You can even meet my own babies~" Kari squeed loudly at that, while Gatomon looked worried regardless. "Come, come! It's not far~ I promise you'll be back home in a few days!"
Kari and Gatomon both exchanged excited and worried glances respectively. Kari nodded her head happily, while Gatomon shook her head no. But, Kari grabbed gatomons hand and took her first waddle to go deeper into the forest. Artemis waddled in first, hiding her cheshire like smile as they all headed towards her cottage. She wasn't lying, of course~ These two would be home in a few days... because they already were~
