“On second thought I'm not sure this is a good idea...” Tori said softly, wringing her tail as Audrey was a blur packing a suit case and running about her house like a mad woman.
“It's going to be fun!” Audrey chuckled as she took a moment break from her dashing about, “besides don't you want to see what kind of cat you'll turn into.”
Tori shrugged halfheartedly, “Yeah I guess, a little...but Alex said changing wasn't something easy and that changing bac-”
“That's why we're going camping!” Audrey cheered as she threw up her arms in joy, grabbing Tori's along with her her and pulling her into the motion, “We'll be in the middle of nowhere, communing with nature and letting your wild side run freeeeeeeee! Doesn't that sound fun?”
Tori had to admit it did, and did her best to suppress a smile yet it still crept through, a nervousness in her voice as she spoke and fished out her phone from her sweatshirt pocket, “I-I suppose I should email the office, let them know I'm taking a few days off, then pack my own bags.”
“Leave all the packing to me you just get your time off.”
“O-Okay,” Tori said hesitantly as she fished in her other pocket for her keys, but no sooner were they in her hands then Audrey snatched them away and ran off.
Dropping her attention to the phone Tori began to pace about as she started to type out her letter. Even though her hands were pretty small before this new change had made them even daintier and she found hitting the small keyboards on her smart phone came easier, absently she found herself wandering outside as she slipped her ear buds into her new ears as she started up one of the games on her home screen and just let the upbeat music and addictive game play settle her rattled nerves even as her pace increased and her mind wandered.
'I suppose it's not so bad being a girl, my old life is still intact and I any new people I meet will only know the new me. I think I can handle that.'
Taking her gaze up from the screen she noticed that she was pretty far from her neighborhood but wasn’t feeling all that tired and so she kept joggers, additional her eyes lingered on a handful of other jogger that passed her field of vision. Smiling at one particular young man wen he waved at her.
'He's pretty cute too,' she purred as she waved back then kept moving, 'and so athletic, bet he's an animal in bed as well, *mrowl*.'
She stopped suddenly shaking her head, “What am I thinking! I'm straight!”
Then her gaze fell to her bosom, her smile twisting awkwardly.
'A straight woman, so being into guys is perfectly normal.' she told herself as she ducked into a bus stall and took a seat letting her eyes watch the people around her.
'But I still remember being a guy, and being into girls,' she debated with herself just as a female jogger passed, waving friendly to her.
She waved back warmly, 'I can sorta remember what I find attractive about someone like her as well but I'm just not feeling it.'
And then she saw a dog and it's owner run down the street, and all the fine hairs on the back of her neck, arms, and legs started to stand on end as her back arched and she began to hiss softly until the dog and it's owner passed and she began to relax, 'Guess I'm not a dog person either.'
As she returned to a more relaxed state and waved at other passerby the site of the bus stirred her to action as she pushed to her feet and turned back toward home.
'Maybe this road trip is a good idea. If not for Audrey's reasons. I could use some time to figure out who I am now, and what these strange feelings mean.'
With a growing smile she picked up the pace and found herself home before she knew it, a surprised look on her face as she came up to her neighborhood to find Audrey was waiting outside in John's canvas top red convertible, with the top down. Looking back she tried to do the numbers in her head, she wasn't even pushing herself but the light perspiration that clung to her clothes and the fact she was breathing normally, not short of breath, and the sun had moved but not very far. Given all this and where she had stopped she must have been moving pretty damn fast, certainly faster then she had ever run as a man, probably faster then most of the joggers she past.
A wide grin grew across her face as she approached Audrey, “Isn't that John's car?”
“He let me borrow it,” Audrey smiled devilish.
“Really now?” Tori said suspiciously.
“Really,” She smiled eagerly, “we're all packed and ready to go, hope in!”
Tori held out her hand, “I just ran like ten miles in under an hour I'm going to freshen up first. My keys.”
Audrey smiled and handed over Tori's keys as she rolled her eyes and headed for her apartment suite in the complex she lived in. It wasn't like the complexes in more congested cities where hundred of people were crammed in nearly identical boxes of twenty to fifty apartment each stacked dozens of floors high, no she, Audrey, John, and several others lived in a series of 2 story houses in a large lot that had maybe four to six residents per building and maybe a hundred or so residents total.
Slipping into her own apartment she didn't even care that Audrey had followed her as she kicked off the shoes that had started all this. She purred as she felt the soft carpet under her feet, she had to admit the shoes were quite comfortable to run in and she made her way to ward her bathroom, absently tossing her sweater in a corner and was beginning to lift off her plain white tee shirt when her gaze was drawn to the grinning Audrey.
“Do you mind?” She growled.
“Don't mind me, go on!” she urged eagerly, “I want to see.”
“See? See what?” Tori sighed, “Nevermind, I have an idea, still I don't feel comfortable with you watching me like a hawk.”
“Oh stop over reacting, your going to have to deal with it a lot more once we're camping.”
Tori sighed, “I-I suppose so...still it's kinda weird.”
Audrey smiled, “I bet.”
Tori shrugged as she removed her shirt, startled for a moment to see the light blue bar underneath, she had felt it appearing when she changed but still the image of it before her eyes was still a bit jarring. However what was more jarring came when her gaze drifted to her arms and exposed belly where she saw for the first time the spites she only caught glimpses off on her cheeks, in a reflection here and then, and when her gaze drifted down to her bust. All in all it was a pretty interesting pattern and it draw another purr of delight from her lips as her fingers caressed her arms softly, tracing some of the spots for a moment.
Audrey chuckled, “Cute spots.”
“I know right! And my skin is so soft, like fur but you know there is no actual fur, which is great cause...you know...that would be just too much, and...”
Tori caught herself reigning in her excitement, as she cleared her throat, “I mea-”
Then Audrey yanked down her sweat pants breaking Tori's confidence with a loud “Yoink!”
“AUDREY!” Tori growled, flashing fang as she turned to face her friend, “That was uncalled fo-”
“Look they go down your legs and around your stomach! You look so cool!”
Tori sighed as Audrey interrupted her to point out the rest of the pattern and she had to admit she did like how it looked and well, what was done was done. With a sigh she kicked her sweatpants to the side and whipped off her socks, she was down to just her bra and panties now.
Tori's mouth got dry as trembling fingers fumbled with the sport bra snaps behind her, this was the big moment, no more hiding or denial, in moments she would be staring down at two fleshy mounds of flesh on her body, breasts, real breasts, and they were hers. It roused trepidation and excitement in equal measures, and it was making her fingers clammy and unsteady.
Until Audrey whipped them off unceremoniously.
“Audrey!” Tori howled as she reflexively covered her bare bosoms.
Audrey rolled her eyes, “Get on with it.”
“Hey these things may be a common thing to you,” Tori protested as she pushed her breasts up into view with her bear hands while still covering the front with her fingers, “But this is sacred territory, no man's land for me.”
Audrey chuckled as she pulled Tori's hand away which made her shiver and shut her eyes tight, “Well good think your no man right?”
“So taking this so lightly Audrey!” Tori hissed, “I just turned into a woman a few hours ago and it;s permanent, found out I have a crush on my neighbor, and now were going to run off into the woods for the week! This is just all so much! Give me some time!”
Audrey's tone softened and grew more sedate, “I-I'm sorry, your right...”
“Thanks,” Tori gave a soft sigh of relife as she slowly opened her eyes and looked down at her bear breasts, exposed everyone and the world.
Or rather to just Audrey not everyone, and less 'the world' and more...alone in her apartment.
Tori smiled as her tensions crashed, “This isn't so bad,” she purred as she moved to her bathroom and turned this way and that to catch different angles of herself in her mirror, “Not to big, not to small.”
She smiled as she bounced on her heels and watched her breasts bounce with her, “Pretty firm but perky.”
“I told you you were cute,” Audrey smiled as she slipped in behind her.
Tori purred louder now as she smiled, “Y-Yeah your right, and these spots look amazing on me!”
Then Audrey tripped her up and she fell out of the bathroom, landing on her hands and knees but not before Audrey slipped off her panties and bolted to the other side of the room before Tori could rise to a squatting position, growling, “Audrey stop doing that!”
“Just trying to move thing along, now get to cleaning yourself up!”
Tori growled as she started to stand and turn back for the bathroom.
“What are you doing?” Audrey asked confused.
“Taking a shower?” Tori said confused as Audrey sauntered over and pushed her back into a squat. “Audrey?”
“That's not how cat clean up,” she giggled as she grabbed Tori's tongue.
Tori shivered a moment and looked down at herself, “Y-You can't be serious...I can't....I mean...there is no way I'm that flexible...besides...I'm still more girl then cat...and.”
“Just do it!” Audrey said annoyed.
“Audrey I'm not going to lick myself clean! I'm not an animal!”
“Well not with that attitude your not!”
“That's another thing, I'm not sure if I'm really up for this girl to go wild...I mean don't get me wrong I think camping is the best possible way to find myself, and just get used to this new body but I don't want to go full cat. I mean Alex even said it wasn't all that easy and it's even harder to turn back.”
Audrey squealed in delight, despite herself Tori found that she was nearly clean, and despite her protests and explanations all through her speech she had been cleaning herself and now that her speech was over so to was her self bath causing her to blush bright red all over, “Looks to me lik you are that flexible aaaaaand can do it just fine.”
Tori growled as she padded into the bathroom still on all fours.
“I'm still taking a proper shower,” she growled defiantly.
Audrey ran ahead and started out the spigot as she sat the rising Tori back down, “How about a bath instead, I'll even do all the work you just relax and enjoy it!”
Tori growled for a moment before sighing and stepping into the filling tub, “Fine, but just this once.”
Audrey squealed in delight once more as she got darted for the door, “I'll be right back!”
Tori sighed and closed her eyes, as she leaned back in the tub and purred, “I suppose this isn't so bad...”
Her eyes darted wide open again as she heard Audrey open and the door and hurry toward the bathroom, “I'm baaaaaack!”
“I'm still here,” she purred as Audrey slipped back into the bathroom with a loofah and some bottles, one of those bottles she pored into the water and it began to bubble. Tori purred, “oooooh bubble bath!”
“Suit up straight!”
Tori sighed as she got back into a squat and Audrey went right to work rubbing perfumes and oils into her skin that made her heady, scrubbing her back and lathering up her hair, and with each touch of Audrey's hand Tori just drifted further and further into bliss and more contented purrs. In fact but the time Audrey started to drain the water and lead her out of the tub, still on all fours, and begin to pat her dry with small towel she had just stopped caring. Audrey fed her a few handfuls of some kind of cat kibble and she just swallowed it down with a smile. Audrey even smiled and gave her a soft kiss on the cheek and called her a good girl as she affixed some kind of collar with her name on the tag around her neck and lead her to a bowl of milk in the kitchen. She didn't even let it bother her when Audrey dragged in what looked like the bottom of a dog house and filled it with kitty litter and pointed toward it. Tori had long since tuned out Audrey's madness and she didn't need to listen to her words to know what she was implying with the industrial size little box. Tori even smirked a little and gave her a token gift for the thought before before padding over to the pile of duffel and sleeping Audrey had stacked in a corner, circled once and went to sleep. Despite everything that had happened today it could have been worse and with a loud rhythmic purr Tori drifted off to sleep.
