Broadcast 30: XXX"So what are we doing?" Lucy finally asked, continually shuffling in her seat to try and fit. It was hard enough finding a place where she could sit comfortably with a pregnant belly stuffed to the navel with nine apparently fully grown fetuses, hips that looked wide enough to take the whole litter, and a butt like a sofa cushion. It was even harder when she had to share space with three other women of comparable size, though Lucy had everyone beat in the enormous belly category.
There was a pause before Kirstie spoke up. "You don't know either?" Lucy was seated in the middle of the back seat, her belly fitting between the front driver and passenger side, and Kirstie flanked her on the left. She was the smallest of the group though she appeared to be the most concerned with her current state of affairs, even given her modest bump. "I assumed there was some kind of plan." Another awkward pause as Jaimee chewed on her cheeks, hoping someone else would jump in with a suggestion. "I
Broadcast: Chapter 26 - Breaking News from HawaiiHayley waddled over the bed closest to the bathroom and plopped down, the whole mattress shaking when her heavy frame landed on it. "What?" Hayley said, narrowing her green eyes at Thomas' nervous look. "It's not like we're going to switch to a different room. I think we can handle sharing a space for a few days, yeah? We can be adults?"
"Yeah, we can be adults," Thomas said, a bitter note in his voice as he slung his bag onto the other bed and stretched out his back. He was still attracted to Hayley but he did not like that nasty tone she was so fond of. "But I don't think I'm crazy to have assumed we'd get separate rooms."
"I never underestimate how stingy PGNT can be at times," Hayley sighed, fanning out her skin with the hem of her shirt. Being jumbo-sized pregnant meant sweat could form in lots of new, fun crevices now. "My first year, they actually made me pay to laminate my own ID and press pass, if you can believe that." She turned to Thomas, seeing him try to focus on unpackin
Broadcast: Chapter 28 - Man On The Street"So where are we going now?" Gigi asked, picking and pulling at her tight dress to make sure it fit on her swollen body. Dancing while pregnant was unexpectedly fun but Gigi did not take into account how being big meant more of her would shift around when in motion.
"I don't know," Jaimee sighed, her hips thrust forward so she could waddle. Her pregnant belly led the way as she went down the sidewalk, awkwardly tilting from one side to another as other pregnant women tried to hurry out of her way. They were awfully big too but everyone was like a little pin compared to Jaimee's bowling ball belly.
"We can go anywhere we want," Rachel said.
"Right," Jaimee scoffed, one hand moving to her middle as her mysterious fetuses started to stir.
"Seriously, pick something," Gigi said, her tone souring. "You called me. I figured you had some grand night planned to try and make us friends or whatever. If this is how you act outside of work, I think I might want to get back to throwing shade."
Broadcast: Chapter 24 - Bad CommunicationThomas sat eagerly at his table in the restaurant, adjusting the collar on his shirt. It was hard finding something nice to wear that he didn't already put on at the station and he did not want to give the impression that he had a limited imagination when it came to clothing. So he put on an old shirt he hardly ever wore and was itchy around his throat because of it. Of course, it wasn't until Thomas got to the restaurant that he realized it wouldn't have mattered what he wore since Jaimee never saw his work clothes. How had he gotten that one mixed up?
When Jaimee eventually arrived, Thomas stood up so quickly he hit his knee on the table and made the silverwear and glasses clink and chime. He grinned like a doofus and Jaimee, noticing his position in the restaurant from the sound, smiled and waddled over. She was wearing a beautiful blue dress that actually managed to conceal her pregnant belly, though it meant the skirt was far shorter than was intended. Jaimee's arms and legs were
Broadcast: Chapter 22 - RebrandingHayley tucked her bra in place through the front of her shirt as she waddled to the parking lot. Her belly cleared the way as Lucy followed behind, her much larger pregnancy making her slower than her network colleague. "I don't know when Rachel left but I'm glad she was gone. Explaining you to her would have taken time we don't have."
"How long could it take to explain?" Lucy scoffed.
"Trust me, you haven't met Rachel," Hayley muttered under her breath.
Lucy got the memo and chuckled to herself. "And I can't imagine your roommates would be too surprised that you spent the night with someone."
"'Oh, I have sex a lot.' Good one. Really cut me to ribbons there," Hayley said in a loopy voice. As they stepped to their respective cars, Hayley flashed Lucy one last emerald-tinted glance. "And I didn't hear you complaining about my 'experience' last night." Lucy clenched her jaw and ducked into her driver's seat, her pregnant weight making it easy for her to fall right in. Hayley laughed to h
