It was time for another battle, and the girls lined up in the room as always. Jason’s face appeared on the TV in front of them. “The fans have voted, and the two girls have been chosen to fight in the arena. Ahsoka won the last battle, so she had immunity from the voting.” Ahsoka grinned as she stepped back. “Now, onto the votes. April and Blaze, you two received two voted each and are safe once again.” The two girls stepped back. “Chell and Misty, you received three votes each and are safe as well.” The two stepped back. “Chun-li got 7 votes, so she’s safe.” The girl stepped back, relieved that she wasn’t chosen to fight. “Sailor Moon, you got 8 votes, so you’re safe.” The girl breathed a sigh of relief and stepped back, leaving three girls left. “Rapunzel, Margaret, and Astrid, you three received the most votes, but only one of you is safe, and that person is…” There was silence for a bit, creating suspense. Rapunzel and Astrid looked Margaret, who was standing in between them. She looked back at them, giving each of them a smirk.
“…Margaret.” Margaret stepped back, beaming in joy. Rapunzel and Astrid were shocked to find out that they would have to fight each other; even the other girls were surprised. “Rapunzel and Astrid, you two will have to battle in the arena, and only one of you can come out the victor. I’ll see one of you later.” The TV turned off and retreated into the wall. The other girls filed into the room, but Ahsoka and April gave them upset looks before entering. The doors closed, leaving the two inside the room together. “I-I can’t believe this is happening.” Rapunzel said, her voice beginning to choke up. “I know. I don’t want to fight you Rapunzel, but,” She sighed before continuing. “We have no choice.” The two girls were taken to a rock quarry, which was kinda depressing to look at. The two girls wondered around, looking for any signs of the other girl. Eventually, they found each other, but they weren't eager to fight. “I really don’t want to do this. I can’t fight my friend.” Astrid said, her ax dangling in her grasp. “I don’t want to fight you either.” She let go of her frying pan, letting it fall to the ground.
“The rules are rules, which means you must fight.” A voice said. The two girls turned their attention to where the voice came from. A figure walked towards them, and they soon found out that it was Margaret. “What are you doing here?!” Rapunzel asked a bit annoyed that the girl somehow found a way into the arena. “I snuck out here. I couldn’t help but witness this battle. Two friends who are forced to fight each other, how can you not want to see that?” She laughed after she spoke; only further annoying the two girls. “Look, we’re not fighting each other.” Astrid said sternly. Margaret wasn’t impressed, so she grabbed her scythe gun and pointed it at them. “I suggest you fight, or else I’ll shoot.” The two girls became tense at the sight of the weapon. They were still unwilling to fight, but they didn’t want to get shot. “F-fine. We’ll fight.” Astrid said, turning to her friend. Rapunzel picked up her frying pan and firmly held it. “I’m sorry Astrid.” Rapunzel rushed towards her friend and smacked her with her frying pan. Astrid stumbled back, surprised that Rapunzel hit her so hard. She used to ax to defend any oncoming attacks. Astrid didn’t attack Rapunzel back, since she had an ax and didn’t want to kill her friend.
Margaret was still unimpressed with how they were fighting, so she decided to change things. She pulled out a small bottle with a purple liquid inside it. She was waiting for a girl to get near her, and lucky for her, Rapunzel came stumbling back into her. “Well, looks like you’re the lucky one.” She said slyly. She opened the bottle and shoved in in Rapunzel’s mouth and made her drink it. When she let go, Rapunzel coughed and stared angrily at Margaret. “What was that for?!” She yelled at the gothic assassin. Margaret only laughed. Suddenly, Rapunzel felt hot. Her stomach gurgled sickly and her vision became a bit blurred. Astrid noticed her friend’s odd behavior and ran up to her. “Rapunzel, what’s wrong?” She placed a hand on Rapunzel’s shoulder. However, the tables quickly turned when Rapunzel looked up at her friend, her eye’s glowing red. Astrid gasped when she saw her friend. “Get your hand off me!” Rapunzel snapped, grabbing Astrid’s arm and tossing her over her shoulder. Astrid landed with a thud, her back aching from the landing. Her ax landed on the ground as well, but Rapunzel quickly grabbed a hold of it. Before she could react, Astrid saw her ax coming down towards her, but she dodged it. Astrid stood up and slowly backed away from her friend.
“Rapunzel, what’s gotten into you?! Snap out of it!” The Viking girl yelled at her friend. Rapunzel didn’t react verbally, instead, she swung the ax again, but Astrid quickly grabbed it and pulled it from Rapunzel’s grasp. “I don’t to fight you Rapunzel, but if you don’t knock this off, then I have no choice.” She swung her ax but Rapunzel blocked it with her frying pan. The two fought for a while, neither wanting to give up. Margaret was rather entertained with the battle, laughing evilly as the two struggled to gain the upper hand. Eventually something happened that made Margaret squeal with glee. Astrid grabbed Rapunzel’s frying pan and pulled it away from her. Without thinking, she slammed Rapunzel in the head with it, causing the princess to go flying back. Astrid quickly realized what she did, so she dropped the frying pan and rushed over to her fallen ally. She scooped up her head in her hand and placed the other hand on the girl’s stomach. The princess was knocked out. “Rapunzel, wake up! Come on! Wake up damn it!” The Viking girl screamed, shaking her friend in the process. Rapunzel eventually woke up; her eyes no longer blood red. She looked at Astrid, noticing the girl had tears in her eyes. Rapunzel smiled softly, despite having received a major injury that could have put her in a comma. “Astrid, I’m fine. Relax.” She said out of breath. Astrid breathed a sigh of relief, glad that her friend was alright.
“And it looks like you’ve won.” The princess said. This made Astrid’s smile quickly fade. “What? No, I can’t eat you! I deserve to be eaten! I was the one who hurt you so badly!” Rapunzel smiled again. “I know. But it was my fault that you did that. If I didn’t drink that, whatever it was, I wouldn’t have been so aggressive. I’ll accept defeat. I knew it was only a matter of time anyway.” A flood of tears ran down Astrid’s face. “B-but Rapunzel…” She didn’t continue her sentence. Rapunzel grabbed Astrid’s ax from the ground and used it to cut off a large amount of hair, leaving only a short bob cut as a result. The hair turned from its golden blonde color to brown, its natural color. The long strands also turned brown. Astrid couldn’t help but look at Rapunzel with a curious look. She looked really different with the short hair. “Now it will be easier to swallow me. Take those strands of hair and keep them, in memory of me.” Astrid couldn’t help but cry a bit. She couldn’t believe this was happening. “Goodbye Astrid.” Rapunzel said as tears began to form in her eyes as well. Astrid was reluctant to continue, but she had no choice. She lightly placed Rapunzel’s head into her mouth and quickly but softly swallowed it. She swallowed Rapunzel’s shoulders and large breasts, followed by her bare stomach and hips. Bulges formed in Astrid’s throat, travelling down with each swallow. Astrid’s belly bulged as Rapunzel’s head entered it. With many more swallows, Rapunzel’s bare feet were all that were left. With one final, reluctant swallow, the princess’s feet disappeared down Astrid’s throat and soon plopped into her stomach. Astrid’s belly grew to a large size, roughly larger than when she ate Marceline.
“UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!” Astrid let out a burp much smaller than the previous victors. Astrid looked down at her extended gut sadly, tears falling down on it. “Goodbye Rapunzel. I’m so sorry.” She began to loudly sob into her hands. Margaret slinked away into the shadows, satisfied with what she saw. “One down, five to go.” Minutes later, Astrid was standing in front of the opening doors, her appearance attracting everyone’s attention. They all looked at the poor girl with sympathetic faces. They walked up to her and gave her a hug, feeling horrible for her. Inside Astrid’s stomach, Rapunzel sat there, waiting for her fate. ‘Win it for me Astrid. Win for all of us.’ She thought. She slowly fainted from exhaustion, unaware of the acids surrounding her. Astrid’s belly began to gurgle as it digested the girl inside. Rapunzel was gone.
