"You're sure you want this?"
"One hundred percent~"
Lysergia was smiling widely up to his large lion friend Leroux, with a warm blush on his cheeks but also a look of sincerity in his smile, not even a hint of doubt in those brilliant purple eyes as they looked up to the white-furred lion's mismatched green and blue eyes. "I want you to eat me~"
Leroux looked down at his tiny black-furred, white-striped friend with a soft chuckle. "Well, I'm not one to deny such a willing snack." The almost casual tone of this line was enough to make Ly shiver just a bit in excitement. The housecat stood about six-foot-one, so he wasn't exactly small, but beside the several-dozen-foot-tall lion, that was a whole different story.
Lysergia's excitement only grew as Leroux sat up tall, really reinforcing the differences in scale between the two in that moment; the four-legged lion sitting tall enough to hide the sun, while the two-legged housecat stood barely a speck on the vast expanse of green grass in the clearing in the forest far below. Almost comically, Lysergia would wave up to Leroux in a barely-visible motion, before the lion would lower back down again, resting his head a bit above the grass, his emerald-green and sapphire-blue eyes focused on the striped feline's form as those black leonine lips lifted into an almost amused sort of smile. "You're aware this is going to be a one-way trip, right? I like to digest my meals after all, hehe..."
But rather than being put off by this statement, Ly just giggled and shook his head. "Nah, it won't be – Haven't I told you? I can reform~" The small cat was giggling almost giddily at what he said, blushing adorably on those white-striped cheeks of his, stepping a bit closer to the lion.
As soon as the news reached him, the lion's maw curled in a wide grin as he laughed a bit. "Oh, that so? Why didn't you say so sooner?" Leroux's maw parted in front of Lysergia, those black lips separating to reveal the warm pink interior of that mouth to the eager and excited housecat. Lysergia watched as the sight was shown to him, the large well-groomed teeth resting just behind the black lips, and behind them was the huge muscle of tongue, dripping wet with saliva and with the scratchy surface of a feline tongue very visible at this scale. As the maw opened wider, Ly would be able to admire the soft insides of the lion's cheeks, the textured palate at the top of his mouth, and everything leading back towards that deep dark abyss of a gullet with a nice uvula almost half Ly's own height hanging down, swaying gently in time with the warm breaths wafting over his form. The scent wasn't bad at all, smelling sweet in a way; perhaps the feline's last food had been some dessert? But as Leroux simply held his maw open, Lysergia soon realized he was waiting for him to climb inside – Which he happily began to do.
Extending his arms forwards, the striped housecat would reach between the large teeth, dangerous to anyone that might be on the lion's bad side but safely out of the way for his friend here and now, and soon enough Ly's hands made contact with that tongue, the white-furred hands pressing gently against the large, soft, wet, and rough muscle to feel as it gave a little beneath his touches before holding firm, rippling gently and idly in anticipation for what was soon to come. His hands began to gently stroke against that tongue, his fur gently catching a bit on the rough texture but slipping easily off with the thick and lubricating saliva as he gave that tongue a gentle rub, lightly kneading against the large muscle in a sort of tongue massage.
The purrs that resulted from the gentle touches would show Leroux was definitely enjoying the sensations as a prelude to what would soon enough come, seeming to just relax and enjoy the tongue rubs for now as those soft hands worked a lovely massage over the rough-surfaced muscle in those slow and gentle movements. Those hands worked with skill, leaving no inch of that tongue unrubbed; quite a feat given how many inches there were to be rubbed. Leroux let the little cat go at this for a while, rather enjoying the subtle flavors those hands were giving him as well; sweet and almost fruity in a way, like strawberry fluff or icing. Those flavors would start to get to the big lion, though, and a rather loud grumble from deep within his core would shake the ground a little and show them both it was time to move on to the next phase of this encounter.
Lysergia of course knew what that growl meant as well, and being the willing snack he was, he gently leaned in further, his head slipping past those massive jaws and into that cavern of a maw, the warm and humid air wafting past with every breath. Leroux was keeping mostly still despite his stomach's eagerness to be filled; this micro wasn't going anywhere, so his belly could wait while he savored the little morsel. Ly soon let his bare upper body press against that tongue as he climbed in a bit deeper, stepping forward and climbing up the tongue a little, until his head just about reached that portal leading further inside with his feet resting safely against the smooth sides of the back of the lion's front teeth. He could hear the deep purring as Leroux got to sample his flavors much more strongly now, another growl escaping that stomach deep inside, but as those jaws began to close, Ly called out quickly. "Wait - Before you swallow me, could you do one thing for me real quick?" A shy chuckle escaped Ly as he continued. "Could you... Stand up tall for me? I'd love to see the view before you gulp me down heh..."
The lion paused for just a moment; as much as he wanted to just swallow the feline down now and sate his stomach's protests with the delays, he knew how willing the feline had been, and those tongue rubs had been really nice, so he figured he could amuse the feline with a sort-of-last request for now. Extending his tongue a little between the smaller cat's legs to hold him more securely while making sure he wouldn't fall out, Leroux stood up on all fours and lifted his head up high like a fast elevator, and Lysergia watched as the forest lowered down and down and down until it was far below. He was well higher than any of the trees and was able to see what seemed like the whole forest, able to make out the clearing beneath them, and off in the distance he could see his own cozy home! Lysergia smiled as he admired the sight for a little longer, before he eventually rubbed the tongue holding him, giggling softly once more. "Alright... I'm ready."
No more needed to be said once the small feline had been entertained; the words had barely left his mouth before Leroux's own would gently close around the housecat's legs and tail, those toes wiggling for a split second before the lion slurped him all the way inside that maw once more. Ly expected to be swallowed immediately, and perhaps that's what the lion's stomach was hoping for, but it seemed Leroux had an idea of his own as he instead pressed his tongue firmly against the smaller feline inside his mouth, pinning him to his palate while suckling on his form, utterly soaking his fur in thick lion saliva. The suckles would help draw out even more of the strawberry icing flavor, and even as Ly's ears gently popped in the negative pressure within that maw, he still just giggled adorably while Leroux treated him like a piece of hard candy. Soon, the tongue would release its hold on him and Lysergia thought this was it, but Leroux soon simply pushed his smaller form against the inside of his cheek, bulging it out cutely with the figure of the small cat for a moment, soon enough pulling him back inside only to then press against the other cheek. Ly was giggling adorably at all the play within the lion's maw, but all good things must come to an end, and as one last impatient growl escaped the stomach, Leroux pulled the smaller feline back into the center of his maw and tilted his head back, sliding Lysergia forwards past the hanging uvula, over the arch of the tongue, and face-first into the snug grip of that throat, falling right into it before being tightly squeezed as Leroux gave one firm *GULP!*
The wide throat clamped down surprisingly tightly on his smaller form, gripping snugly and firmly as his entire form was pushed into that gullet all at once. The tunnel of slick muscle would grip Ly's entire body to push him along that tunnel with rippling and squeezing motions, working him along in slow and relentless waves of muscle. He smiled to himself as he imagined the sight of Leroux's neck bulged out nicely with his whole form slipping through that esophagus, picturing the swell he was making descending smoothly behind the thick green fluff of the lion's mane as he was squeezed along smoothly and irresistibly deeper inside. Lysergia could hear the steady and heavy thumping of the lion's heartbeat somewhere ahead as those peristaltic motions guided him along, soon disappearing behind Leroux's chest, sliding a bit further along before he felt a very tight squeeze against his face, blocking him from traveling any further for a moment, until one firm squeeze from the gullet would force him through that tight portal and work the smaller feline through into the large chamber ahead, the valve giving a nice squeeze to every inch of Ly's form from his head, down his chest and belly, until his paws would be pushed through to have him entirely inside that waiting stomach.
Curled up loosely within the warm and fleshy organ, Lysergia would giggle a bit to himself, unable to see inside the dark insides of the lion but letting his other senses tell him everything he needed to know. He was laying in a shallow pool of thick fluids, seeming to mostly be just swallowed feline saliva at the moment, though no doubt that would change in due time. His hands gently caressed those soft and wrinkled walls, feeling as they subtly shifted around his form as though realizing there was food inside. Ly let out a gentle sound as he relaxed in the warmth of that stomach, able to feel gentle movements from outside as the predatory lion went about his business, probably not giving much thought to the micro in his belly even as Ly continued to give those little rubs. The steady sound of the massive feline's heartbeat and the smooth sounds of his breathing were a nice relaxing ambiance in the background of the more prominent groans and growls of the hungry stomach getting ready to process what was inside, and the devoured housecat simply relaxed and continued those caresses as he made no attempt to escape, no effort to stop this from happening. He was lion food and he was perfectly content to accept his fate as such.
It seemed that stomach was ready to accept him as well, the walls beginning to ripple and squeeze in rolling motions, beginning to compress down against his form a bit more with the powerful waves of those contracting stomach walls. Lysergia noticed the fluid at the bottom of the stomach seeming to rise, slowly but steadily, the kneading of the stomach helping those fluids work into his fur and all over his body. He felt a gentle tingle beginning to grow as more of those fluids began to enter the stomach, and a firm shiver ran through his form as the realization settled in – He was being digested. But even with the knowledge of what was happening to him, he only let out another giggle, the rapidly thinning air making him rather lightheaded as he relaxed a little more, until the stomach would tighten around his form in a firm squeeze for a moment, compacting him tightly and keeping him immobile, before releasing with an audible gurgle.
Lysergia panted softly in the hot, thin, and muggy air inside that stomach once he was able to breathe again, the fluids now submerging most of his lower body now with the tingling growing steadily stronger with every passing second, giving him an almost itchy sort of feeling along his paw-pads as the stomach began to do its job. His hands continued to rub those walls some more, even as a second contraction of the stomach forced him even tighter than the last one, holding him firmly enough to knock the wind out of him, but once it relaxed again, Lysergia would huff a bit more and pant harder, trying and failing to catch his breath in what little thin air remained inside. Only his head remained above the fluids now, a burning sensation growing stronger which would have been quite painful if he wasn't only barely conscious at this point, and he spoke out loud in a voice barely above a whisper while continuing to weakly rub. "Thank you... Leroux... I'm... Honored to... Be yours... I'll see..-" But before he could finish, that stomach squeezed in even harder than before, cutting him off as his entire form was compacted as tightly as it could be.
Outside, the wandering lion would pause for just a moment, before unceremoniously letting out a loud burp as his stomach gave a similarly loud glorp, the feline inside falling still as the stomach continued to process the food within. A small smile lifted the corners of Leroux's lips; Lysergia had been a nice treat, and if what he had said about reforming was true, he would definitely look forward to having him again. Though as a second belch escaped the lion, this time bringing up a small black furball with white stripes all along it, he would simply chuckle to himself and resume walking, deciding his friend would do nicely as some padding on his belly in the meantime – After all, that’s what food was for, and what better food than a friend who offers himself to be yours~?
