The Giantess's Garden: Illustrated Story

Here the start of the latest illustrated story written by myself and art by Caiman2. Be sure to check his work out here.

https://caiman2.deviantart.com/


Night had fallen over the town of Dunlin and most people were asleep as they had busy mornings ahead of them. The village itself had been almost destroyed by a freak flood almost a century earlier but had since been rebuilt. It sat on the banks of a river which helped with trade and was an easy source of water for the townspeople.

Not everyone was asleep as there was one person in particular who was awake. His name was Liam and he wandered the streets looking for anything that he thought was edible. The only thing he owned was the clothes that he was wearing. He was a boy who was barely ten years old with short brown hair and green eyes. Six short months ago his life had been happy as he lived with his parents and had a stable life. But then his parents were both afflicted by an illness that no doctor could seemingly cure. Before he knew it, they were both dead and he was living by himself. Now his clothes were in tatters and he didn’t even have any shoes to call his own.

With no family members close by help him Liam had tried to make it on his own on the streets but he had found this to be incredibly difficult. He even had to resort to stealing food and coin which in the end forced him out of his hometown. His travels had led him to Dunlin where he hoped that things would be better. So far, he had been able to steal himself a loaf of bread but it wasn’t enough to keep him going.

Liam’s search for food led him to the outskirts of the town, an area that he had yet to explore. Where he had found himself was certainly different to the other parts of Dunlin. Before he had found this place, there had been wooden buildings with cobbled roads. A few of the buildings had been made with bricks but this was few and far between. Now he found himself in a small field with several plants growing. In the low light he could see flowers but most importantly there was some fruit and vegetables that were also growing in this field. Just on the edge of the field he could see a relatively large building but for the time being he paid no mind to it.

Instead Liam quickly made his way toward one of the tomato plants and picked a couple of tomatoes off of their vines. He wasn’t too big of a fan of tomatoes but he was so hungry that he simply didn’t care. Instead he took a bite out of them and he realised that it wasn’t ripe yet. The tomato was hard and it almost broke one of his teeth. Despite this he couldn’t help but continue to eat it.

One thing that he didn’t realise was that he was being noisier than he was supposed to be. The rustling of the leaves that he was causing did attract the attention of a particular person. Liam for the time being continued on with what he was doing. He was picking as much fruit and vegetables as he could carry. He hoped that it would last him some time, then he might come back again to pick some more.
He was too busy with what he was doing to notice that someone was standing not too far away from where he was. This figure had their arms crossed and looked down at him as he continued to pick his food. He did chuckle to himself as he thought that he was going to get
away freely.

“What are you doing?” asked a female voice. This caused Liam to stop what he was doing and turn to where he had heard the voice.
He looked up slightly as he expected to be looking at the face of an adult. However, he soon realised that he wasn’t looking up far enough. His neck was craning up and up as he his eyes continued to move upwards. After a few moments his eyes met the eyes of the woman standing a short distance away but her appearance shocked him greatly.

The moonlight shone on her white hair and her eyes were a sapphire blue. She was a very pretty woman and looked quite young, Liam guessed that she was in her mid-twenties. She wore a green dress along with a pair of matching low heels. These were not the most shocking parts of her appearance. It was her overall height, as he expected she was much taller than him but she was also more than twice as tall as the tallest person that he had ever seen. Her height was an incredibly fifteen feet and this caused him to drop the fruit and vegetables that he had stolen.

Liam took a step back and thought about running but he could see that she still had her arms crossed and she had a puzzled look on her face. She didn’t look angry or even aggressive at all, she was just curious. He had heard about giants from stories such as fairy tales but he thought that they were simply mythological creatures. The fact that there was one standing before him was almost too much for his mind to process.

“I’ll ask you again,” said the Giantess. Her tone was somewhat firm but still had a softness to it. “What are you doing?”

Liam tried to think about what he was going to say but with everything that was happening he couldn’t help but begin to cry. He went down to his knees and put his hands together, all he could do was hope that she wouldn’t hurt him.

“Please don’t hurt me,” cried Liam. “I didn’t know that they were yours. I’ll put them back I swear.”

“It’s alright, you don’t need to cry.” Her voice had become much softer and when he looked up he could see that she was crouching down and that she had a worried look on her face. “Please tell me your name.”

“L-Liam.” He wiped some of the tears from his eyes and whatever fear he felt had dissipated somewhat.

“Ok Liam, my name is Rina and I’m not going to hurt you. Do you understand?” She watched as he nodded and she gave him a pleasant smile. “Good, now can you tell me what you’re doing out here all by yourself in the middle of the night?” This time when she delivered the question it was much softer and made him feel at ease.

“I-I was hungry and these were here. I couldn’t help myself, I promise that I’ll pay you back for them.” He hadn’t gotten back to his feet yet but his tears were beginning to subside.

“Why are you hungry? Where are your parents?” She was beginning to piece together what was happening as she could see that Liam’s clothing was in tatters. Something that a parent wouldn’t likely allow to happen.

“My parents are dead ma’am, I’ve been trying to live by myself but, but.” He began to think of his parents and this caused him to cry again. He saw her expression change to that of worry. She held out her enormous hand to him.

“You know you shouldn’t be out here by yourself, why don’t you stop with me tonight? You can eat what you want and then I can take you to the proper authorities tomorrow, how does that sound to you?”

“G-Good.” He could only say this through his tears.

“Great, now let me help you up.” Liam grabbed onto one of Rina’s fingers and she helped him back up to his feet. He looked up to her again and he saw that she was smiling again. “Now that you’re up would you like me to carry you or would you like to walk?”

“I-I’ll walk.”

“Ok, now follow me. If you can’t keep up don’t hesitate to tell me.” She smiled again as he nodded his head.
With that Rina began to walk away. Liam wiped his tears away again and followed her. He had to move fairly quickly at first to catch her up but he saw that she was walking at a slower pace than she would normal walk. She wanted him to keep up and he didn’t know it at first but his life was changing for the better.

Re: The Giantess's Garden: Illustrated Story

With Rina walking at a slower pace Liam was able to keep up with her and he saw that they were approaching the large building that was close by. From a distance he didn’t realise just how large it actually was. It was around thirty feet tall and was a single storey, in the moonlight he could see that it was made out of wood and had some flowers growing along it. In his mind it was like a house that he had seen in a painting a couple of years ago. He thought it was the most beautiful house that he had seen in person.

He continued to follow Rina as she opened the large and heavy looking door to enter the house itself. When Liam stepped inside he saw that it looked much like a normal house but all the furniture and items were scaled up to her scale. Next to Rina they looked normal and he had to remind himself that she and everything around him was gigantic and that he hadn’t shrunk down.

The ceiling was thirty feet above him and he could see a couple of plants that were around the main room that he had found himself in. He could see that Rina was rummaging through some items and eventually he saw her turn to him. In her hands were a table and chair that were of normal size. She then placed them on the ground near to where Liam was standing and he looked up at her again.

“I’m sorry but it might be a little dusty,” said Rina as she brushed the table off with her large hand as well as she could. “But I haven’t had anyone stop for dinner in a while. Take a seat and I’ll make you something.”

Liam was still in a small shock sat down at the chair and watched Rina walk away into the nearby kitchen. She began to chop away at something but he couldn’t see what it was, that was until he saw her come out with a normal size plate. On the plate was a collection of
vegetables and some bread. She walked toward him and then placed it on the table just in front of him.

“It might not be much but it’ll tie you over until tomorrow,” said Rina. She had a small smile on her face. “Then I’ll cook you something properly to eat.”

“T-Thank you,” replied Liam. He looked down at the food and he didn’t care too much about what was on there. He just picked it up and began to stuff his face with it, it was the first real meal that he had for a while and he wanted to enjoy it as much as he could.

Rina watched on but she was also making a small amount of food for herself. She made herself a quick salad and ate it while she still kept an eye on him. She felt very sympathetic to him as she didn’t like to think about a child losing both of their parents. She was also thinking about what she should do with him. She couldn’t let him leave if he had nowhere else to go but she couldn’t keep him either as she was not related to him and was not his legal guardian either. She knew what she needed to do but she would have to do it in the morning rather than doing anything about it now.

Within minutes Liam had finished what he was eating and he lay back on his chair. He hadn’t been too particularly fond vegetables but he had still enjoyed what he had eaten. He saw Rina approaching him and she bent down so that she didn’t seem so tall to him. Even bending down she was still the tallest human being that he had ever seen.

“Did you enjoy that?” asked Rina. Her smile was still there and any fear that he had for his safety was gone.

“Y-Yes thank you,” replied Liam. He remembered how his parents taught him to be thankful to those who gave him something of value.

“That’s great, I couldn’t simply let you go walking around hungry like that. At least now you have some much-needed food in that belly of yours.” She chuckled for a moment and he could see that he had a small amount of confusion in his face. “What’s the matter?”

“Why are you so big?” His question was quick and blunt much like that which would come from a child. Rather than being offended by it she simply chuckled again and then carefully grabbed him around the sides.

“I’ll tell you but first I think it’s best that I put you…” She lifted him up gently and then began to look around. She saw a table close by and then placed him on top of it. “Here.” She then bent down to pick up the table and chair that Liam had been sitting at. She put them to one side before she took a few steps back and looked at him. “You could say that I am simply Rina, I’ve been big for as long as I can remember but my size runs deeper than that. Much deeper.”

Liam looked at Rina and noticed something different about her, he couldn’t put his finger on it at first but when he looked further he could see that she was taller. It was only a few feet from what she had been before but it quickly increased in a small amount of time. Liam got up and took a few steps back as he saw the giantess growing taller and taller before him. His fear was back for a moment and he saw her head push up against the high ceiling. For a moment he thinks that she is going to crash through it but her growth spurt suddenly stopped. Now she was easily twice as tall as she was before.

“Y-You grew,” said Liam in shock. He had never seen such a thing before and a small amount of fear that he had felt before suddenly returned.

“Yep and if it wasn’t for this pesky ceiling I would have made myself even bigger,” replied Rina in a cheerful voice. Her tone of voice did ease him a little but he still looked up in wonder of her. She made the gigantic furniture seem small. “But then again the people of Dunlin don’t like me growing above a certain height.

Liam then watched as Rina began to shrink herself down. The process was slower and less grand than the growth spurt. Within a few seconds her height was back down to fifteen feet, it was still impressive but her size was not as impressive as it had been just a few moments ago.

“Can you shrink yourself smaller?” asked Liam was confused by the fact that she was still this size even she could change it at will.

“Unfortunately for me and my pocketbook this is as small as I can get,” replied Rina. She laughed for a moment at her joke before taking a few steps toward him. She then squatted down so that her eye level was at his. “But my abilities can work in other ways.” She then pinched her nose and began to blow. Liam wondered what she was doing but then he heard a popping sound. Suddenly he saw that her ears had grown significantly. Now they were at least three times their original size and poking out through her white hair. It made her look ridiculous and it even made him giggle. “Don’t I look funny?” She had released her nose and was giggling along with him. “I look like an elephant don’t I with these ears?”

“Y-Yes you do.” He was too busy giggling and barely noticed her shrink her ears back down to their original size.

“As you saw I can enlarge any part of my body without making everything else bigger. And I can do this.” He watched as Rina’s body changed again, this time it came from her neck which began to grow longer, it was different from when her ears grow. Then they had grown in proportion but this time her neck was simply stretching. It was like her head was being pushed up but the rest of her body remained where it was. The neck occupied the space between the body and the head and was stretching more and more. When it eventually stopped her neck was roughly eight feet long which now made a significant portion of her height. “Now I look like a giraffe, I’m sure that I can graze from the tops of the trees with such a long neck like this.”

“T-That’s amazing.” He was still in disbelief over what he was seeing. Something inside of him was also telling him that she wasn’t quite human either.

“Oh, you better believe it.” Her neck began to retract which brought her head down until it was back to it’s original length. “It’s fun being able to do that but most of the time I prefer to have my body like it should be now.” She could see that he was still amazed by her demonstration but she could also see that he was fatigued. This changed her expression to one of concern. “Liam you’re tired, I think it’s best that you go to bed. Besides you’ll probably be quite busy tomorrow.”

“W-What, why?” he was confused by this continued to look at her.

“I’m going to have to take you to the mayor. He’ll decide what will be done about you. You’ll stay here tonight but after that I’m not sure what’ll happen, hopefully it’ll go in a way that’ll benefit you.”

Liam went to protest but found himself too tired to protest. He didn’t even show any kind of resistance when Rina picked him up once again. He was more tired than he realised as she carried him out of the room and into a much smaller room. It was small in comparison to her but it was comfortable for him. He saw that there was a bed scaled for a normal size person along with a small table and a chair. She gently placed him on the bed and then squatted down once again.

“W-What is this?” asked Liam who was still tired from everything that had happened in the last few hours.

“My guest room,” replied Rina. “It might be a little messy but it will do for tonight.” She continued to smile at him. “Just make yourself comfortable and get as much sleep as you can. You must be tired after everything.” Liam didn’t respond and simply yawned loudly, he could barely keep his eyes open. He watched as she stood up again and smiled down at him. “If you need me for anything don’t hesitate to call me. Goodnight, have pleasant dreams.”

With that she stepped out and closed the door behind her. Liam climbed into the bed and almost as soon as his head struck the pillow he was fast asleep. It was the best place that he had slept in for a while and he couldn’t help but feel that his fortunes were turning for the better.

Re: The Giantess's Garden: Illustrated Story

When Liam woke up the next morning for a moment he forgot where he was. It took a few seconds for him to remember about Rina and that he was sleeping in her giant home. He also remembered that his parents were still dead and this made him sad. It was enough for him to shed a few tears.

Eventually he did climb out of the bed and was able to open the door to the room. Although it was gigantic there was a smaller door built into it so that a normal size person could use it. No sooner had he opened it and stepped out he could see that the gigantic furniture was still around him. Each was almost three times the size of a normal and he saw the woman herself Rina resting on a chair nearby.

When Liam saw her, he could see that her clothes were different from what they were the night before. Now she was wearing a bright summer dress and a single strap sandals on her feet. She was reading a book and was wearing glasses as she read, the book she was reading was normal size and she brought it close to her face so that she could read it.

For a moment she shifted her focus away from the book and she saw Liam standing there. She quickly placed a marker on the book and closed it. She lifted her glasses and looked at him with a smile on her face.

“Good morning,” said Rina. “Did you have a nice sleep?”

“Y-Yes thank you,” replied Liam. He was still adjusting to the size of the woman sitting before him. He remembered the demonstration that he had seen the night before and it was something that he was unlikely to ever forget.

“You slept for a very long time, you must have been really tired.”

“I-I was.” His stomach began to growl.

“And from the sounds of that you’re hungry as well.” She placed the book down and then stood up. “Come along now, let’s make you some breakfast.”

Liam didn’t argue with her and followed her to the kitchen. There she made him a quick breakfast which consisted of pancakes. He ate them quickly as he was hungry and it was the first time he had eaten pancakes for a fair while. Rina made sure that there was plenty of syrup to go along with it. When he was done he felt like he had just eaten his weight in pancakes.

She was more than happy to feed him but she did notice that he smelled. This was fixed once she ran him a bath and allowed him to bathe himself. She knew that he was old enough to bathe himself so she left him to it as she prepared for a few other things that were happening that day.

Liam’s bath lasted for a few minutes but he was disappointed to find that the only clothes that he had were the dirty ones that he had been wearing for months on end. Even though he was clean his clothes still stank and he knew that Rina could smell it. With little choice he still put it back on and went back to her. He found her cleaning up after breakfast and at first, she didn’t spot him.

At one point she noticed that somehow a small amount of syrup had made its way onto the ceiling. He watched as she dampened a cloth and the elongated her arm until she could reach the syrup. At this point in time her as was as long as the entirety of her body, it was a very abnormal thing for him to see but he didn’t say anything about it.

“Rina,” said Liam after she had finished cleaning the ceiling. He watched as her as she retracted her arm, within moments it was back down to its normal length.

“Yes, what is it?” replied Rina as she took a few steps toward him. She had the usual smile on her face and even though she was huge he felt perfectly safe.

“I’m finished now, but my clothes still stink.” He looked down at his clothes for a moment and he felt embarrassed to be wearing them.

“Don’t worry about that for now. In the meantime, we have to make our way to the mayor’s office. It’s up to him on what’s going to happen to you.”

“What do you mean by that?” He was becoming scared and confused. “He’s not going to make me go out on the streets again is he?”

“Of course not, he would never do anything as terrible as that. Nah, we just need to figure out where you’re going to go. As much as I loved having you over here I don’t think I can legally keep you here.”

“O-Oh I see.” He was still nervous as he didn’t know what was going to happen to him. He didn’t want to be sent out on the streets again but he just didn’t know what to think. Rina’s presence was comforting for him though.

Around an hour later Liam stepped out of the house with Rina following close behind. It was a beautiful sunny day and she took a deep breath so that she could feel relaxed. Liam also looked out and only now could he see how colourful her garden was. It was more beautiful than he could have imagined and she looked at him while he observed it. She seemed proud by what she had created and she allowed him to observe for a little while longer before she decided that it was time to move on.

While Liam was looking at the garden he failed to notice Rina growing even larger. It wasn’t until her shadow enveloped him that he realised what had happened. When he turned to look at her he saw that her height had doubled. She was now as tall as her home and she was looking down at him with her smile. He was confused for a moment and even took a step back from her.

“Y-You grew,” said Liam with some surprise. He knew full well that she could grow but he didn’t expect her to do it right there and then.

“Of course, it’s better to carry you at this size and don’t worry,” replied Rina. “I’m as tall as I’m allowed to be.” She pointed to a marker on top of the house which she just tall enough for her head to reach. “See, not too tall.” She then looked at him again. “You don’t mind me carrying you, do you?”

“No, I don’t mind.” He then saw her bend down and wrap her huge hands around him. She then effortlessly lifted him up and placed him on her shoulder. It was a little small for him but she was able to increase the size of her shoulder without increased the rest of her body. It looked very odd but since she was still under the thirty-foot limit she was perfectly fine. She also wrapped some of her hair around him for his own protection.

“Now off we go, Rina’s taxi service is on the move.” She giggled as she said this and she simply began to walk toward Dunlin. There was a somewhat loud thud with each footstep she took and not only did she look where she was going but she also kept an eye on him as well. The last thing she wanted was for him to fall.

Liam marvelled over the view that he was seeing from Rina’s shoulder. It was like he was in a moving tree and he could see the tops of the houses in Dunlin and everyone who walked below seemed to be like toys. He thought that this was how she felt every time she went out of her house. It was a very surreal thing for him to experience.

One thing that Liam did notice was that a few people said hello to Rina as she walked by and she would smile and say hello back. It was odd for him to see a woman as large as her walking through a street like a normal person and interacting with them. It was almost like something out of one of his books.

Eventually they came to another building and she placed him onto the ground. Liam looked at the building for a moment and he was confused. He thought that he was going to see the mayor but instead he found himself outside of a shop. His confusion only grew as he saw Rina giggling at him.

“Does the mayor work here?” asked Liam with confusion in his voice.

“Of course, not silly,” replied Rina. She giggled for a moment before it subsided. “I’ve brought you here so that you can get some new clothes. You don’t want to see the mayor wearing that.” Suddenly she spotted someone coming out of the store, this woman had been expecting them and she looked up at Rina. She was slightly overweight and looked to be around fifty. She was wearing normal clothing and didn’t seem to be phased by Rina’s size. She then looked at Liam after she had said hello to her and focused her gaze on the boy standing before her.

“I see why you’ve brought him here,” said the woman.

“Yeah, he needs some new clothes to wear. Have you got anything that will suit him?”

“Of course.” She then gestured his hand toward the door of the store. “If you would like to make your way inside.”

Liam with some hesitation did walk inside and he could see rows upon rows of clothes inside. They had clothes for men, women, children and any size that he could think of. He was amazed with what he was seeing but he soon found the store owner standing beside him. It was her responsibility to get what she felt was right.

For the next half an hour Liam tried several different clothes. Most of them he didn’t really like but eventually he came across some a set that he felt truly suited him. It consisted of a red shirt with blue trousers and some nice shoes to go along with it. Out of everything that he wore it was the one that he felt most comfortable with.

For a moment he did wonder how he was going to pay for it but the store owner told him that Rina had already paid for it and that he didn’t have to worry. Once he was done he stepped back outside and he could see Rina looking down with a smile on her face. She seemed to like what she was seeing and he too seemed to be happy as well.

“Don’t you look adorable,” said Rina as she continued to look at him.

“Do you really think so?” replied Liam. He held his shirt out for a moment and looked at it. “I thought you’d think it was a little bland.”

“Of course not, it’s perfect for you.” She then bent down and held her hand to him. “Shall we keep going?”

Liam nodded and allowed Rina to pick him up again and place him on her shoulder. When she was sure that he was secure she carried on with their journey and Liam could only hope that their visit to the mayor would go for the best.

Re: The Giantess's Garden: Illustrated Story

Rina continued to walk for another couple of minutes with Liam on her shoulder. He was enjoying the view and although he was so high up he still felt perfectly safe. Some of her long strands of white hair wrapped itself around him so if he fell off he wouldn’t fall to the ground. She was also being very careful not to make any movements that could cause any danger.

Eventually they could see a large building ahead of them. Rina simply walked toward it. The building looked to be quite old and it also looked very official. This building was no home or store or even a warehouse. It was the town hall that had even been designed for Rina to be able to go inside of. At her current height it was still taller than her and she carefully placed Liam onto the ground.

No sooner had she done this she quickly began to shrink down until she was back down to her smallest height of fifteen feet. Liam then saw a man step out from the town hall and look up at her. At first, he thought that he was the mayor but from the clothing that he was wearing it didn’t seem like this was the case. His clothing still looked gentleman like but it not mayor material.

“Good morning Ms Street we’ve been expecting you,” said the Man. “I take it that you’ve come to see the Mayor.”

“Yes,” replied Rina with a smile still on her face. “Is he available to speak to? It is a matter of some importance.”

“Indeed, he is, you know where to go in and I’ll inform him of your arrival.”

Rina thanked him and began to walk toward the side of the building. Liam followed quickly and eventually they came to a pair of very large doors. They were just a little shorter than Rina and when she carefully opened them up she still needed to duck in order to get through but she did with some ease.

When Liam followed her inside he could see a large area in front of him that was designated for town meetings. He also saw some paintings on the wall of previous mayors and important officials for the town. He noticed that Rina could stand up inside without hr head touching the ceiling, there was still a lot of distance between her head and the ceiling.

There were also some doors to the side that led to smaller rooms that she was too big to go into. Instead they saw a man with a large belly approach them. He had a thick red beard and wore mainly black clothing. He also wore what looked like a gold chain around his neck which was a mark of his office. He seemed to be a jolly man who seemed happy to see them both. Rina also sat down on the ground so that she didn’t seem so big.

“So good to see you Rina,” said the Mayor. “How may I help you on this fine day?”

“And it’s good to see you too,” replied Rina who remembered to her courtesies. She then placed her hand on Liam’s shoulder and he looked up to her. “I found this young man in my garden last night.”

“Oh, did you now?” He then looked at Liam who was still looking up at Rina. “May I ask what you were doing there?”

“I-I was hungry and I needed food,” replied Liam who was caught somewhat by surprise. “I didn’t mean to steal anything.”

“What’s your name boy and where are your parents?”

“My name is Liam and my parents are dead.”

“Oh my, I’m sorry to hear that.”

“That’s why we’re here,” replied Rina. “He stayed with me last night but I’m not sure what needs to be done.”

“Yeah I see the problem there. Liam do you have any relatives?”

“I-I have an aunt,” answered Liam. “But she lives in Kronal.”

“Hmm Kronal eh?” He knew that it was a place that was some distance away. It would take a fair while for word to reach there and then someone to come. “That’s not exactly the next town over. It’ll take some time for us to contact your aunt and we can’t simply allow you back out onto the streets.”

“I did have an idea,” said Rina. Her hand was still on Liam’s shoulder. “If you wish you can name me as Liam’s temporary guardian, until his relative comes to pick him up.”

“Are you willing to house him for however long it may be.”

“Of course, I have more than enough room and it would be nice to have someone living with me. Even if it is only for a little while.”

“In that case I James Helmsley as Mayor of Dunlin hereby name you Rina Street as Liam’s legal guardian until his aunt arrives.”
Liam didn’t know how to properly react. He couldn’t believe that he would be staying with her in her giant house. It came as a small surprise but he couldn’t help but feel happy, he knew that she would look after him and he would be in safe hands. If anything to him this was the best possible outcome.

Even though the decision had been made they couldn’t leave the town hall straight away. There was some paperwork that needed to be filled out and information about Liam’s aunt had to be given. He wasn’t sure of her address but her full name was given. It would take a little time for them to find the address but he didn’t seem to mind this.

After a few minutes Liam found himself on Rina’s shoulder once again. This time she was still at fifteen feet and he was on both her shoulders. She kept a hold of his legs as she walked so that he didn’t fall. He could see clearly over her head and he felt each step that she made. For the first time since the loss of his parents he felt happy.

“So, it looks like I’m going to have to look after you for a while,” said Rina. She looked up at him and he looked down at her. She smiled at him and but she was still being careful. “Guess my guest room is now your room for now.”

“Do I have to call you Mom now?” replied Liam. He was happy for this but he wanted to make sure that he didn’t break any rules.

“Only if you want to. For now, Rina will do, do you want me to call you Liam or Liam who is now officially my legal guardian?” This caused the boy to chuckle as he could see that she was having a joke with him.

“Liam will do thank you.”

“Ok then, it does seem that I could go a little faster.” Liam then saw his vantage point beginning to go up. He thought that she was growing but he noticed that her head and shoulders remained the same size. The truth was that her entire upper section was staying the same but her legs were a different story. They were stretching up with each passing second, within a short while they were incredibly long. She remembered to stay within the thirty-foot limit but now three quarters of her overall height was in her legs. “Guess you’ll have to call me Rina Long Legs now.”

This caused Liam to laugh again and he smiled as he placed his hand on the head of the giant, long legged woman. He knew that she would always have his needs in mind and that he couldn’t have asked for a better guardian. His life with her was only just beginning and it would be far from uneventful.

Re: The Giantess's Garden: Illustrated Story

A week went by and Liam seemed to be adjusting nicely to his new life with Rina. She was making sure that he was well fed and had a nice to place to live. At first, he had gotten a little dazed from living in a place where practically everything was almost three times larger than normal. Over the week he had gotten used to it and was even feeling like it was the norm rather than the exception.

Rina was doing everything that a mother would do for him. At one point he had even fallen over and scraped his knee, rather than panicking she calmed placed a plaster on it and made sure that he was alright. It did get him some ice cream for his troubles and so it had made him happy once again.

Despite the fact that she was having to take care of Liam for now she still found more than enough time to tend to her garden. She made sure that all the plants were watered and any food that was now ripe would be picked. Most of them ended up on the dinner plate although there were some that were kept to one side in order for her to sell on to the people of Dunlin.

On a particular day Liam found himself standing in the garden. As of Rina’s instructions he was wearing the tattered clothes that he had worn when he first came there. She had bought him a couple of new outfits since and he was a little confused with why he was wearing this. These questions were put to the back of his mind as he saw her approaching him. She was wearing the same dress and heels that she had been wearing when they had first met, a night that he would never forget.

As soon as the fifteen-foot woman reached him she went down to her knees and smiled at him. Even on her knees she was taller than any human in history, she didn’t seem to mind this as she had long gotten use to this. She tried not to make herself seem so large but for someone of her size this was very difficult.

“So glad that you’re out here,” said Rina. “I thought that you might help me out with a few things.”

“Y-Yeah sure,” replied Liam. He felt like he couldn’t refuse her and he even took a few steps toward her. “What do I need to do?”

“Well I need you to help me prune some of the flowers and I think a few of the tomatoes need to be picked. I would appreciate a hand with it.”

“As you wish.”

For the next several minutes Rina began to show Liam what he needed to do and he took in everything that she said. He was amazed by how large some of the plants were, it was like she had transferred some of her gigantism over to them. He didn’t know if it was possible but with everything that he had seen with her he wasn’t too surprised.

Liam seemed to be enjoying what he was doing and he was doing a good job. He was being careful with what he was doing and Rina would watch on with a smile on her face. She thought that this would help occupy him as he hadn’t been able to do much since he began to live with her. She had plans in mind but for now this was best thing that she could do for the time being.

After an hour Liam returned to Rina with the ripe tomatoes in a basket. He could see her tending to some of her other flowers which were purple in colour. She was humming to herself and he had to pull slightly on her dress for her to notice him. Her smile returned and her warm expression made him feel good.

“Ah you’re back,” said Rina. Her voice was soothing for him and he continued to look up at her. “Did you do everything I asked?”

“Yes, I did Rina.” He then lifted up the basket to her and she gently took it from him. “That should be all of them.”

“And it looks like it is.” She examined the basket and everything that was inside. “You’ve done a great job Liam.”

“Thanks, did you plant all these yourself?”

“Yes, everything you see here was nothing more than a seed at one point that I’ve planted. With plenty of care I’ve made sure that they’ve grown into the healthy plants that you see today. Of course. it didn’t take place overnight, I’ve been doing this for several years and I’m happy with the results.”

“It’s very beautiful, it looks like a garden I saw in a painting once.”

“Oh, thank you.” She leaned down and gave him a quick kiss on his forehead. “That was a sweet thing for you to say.” He enjoyed the kiss that had been a motherly one, she was giving him everything he needed to feel like he was welcome.

“Is there anything else you want me to do?”

“Actually, there is one thing that we need to talk about.” Her expression changed as she was taking a slightly more serious tone. “You’ve been living with me for a week and it would be irresponsible for me to deny you an education.”

“Wait, you don’t mean…” He began to become worried about what she was about to say next.

“That’s right, you’re going to have to go back to school.”

“School?” He paused for a moment as he remembered how much he had disliked school, even when his parents were still alive. At least when he was living on the streets he didn’t have to worry about going. Now it seemed like this time for him was coming to an end. “But I don’t want to go to school.”

“Not many children do like going to school but you have to anyway. I’ve already spoken to the headmaster and you start first thing on Monday morning. I’ve even bought you a school uniform and everything.”

“I don’t want to go, I want to stay here with you. Maybe you can home school me, that’s actually something.”

“I’m not a very good teacher, besides it’s healthy for you to be around children your own age.”

“But.”

“No buts Liam.” Her voice was a little sterner and it was obvious that she wasn’t joking around with the matter. “You’re going back to school and that’s final.” She could see Liam fold his arms and put on a pouty face, he was hoping that this was make her relent but the white-haired giantess wasn’t backing down.

Liam continued to stand there in silence when Rina noticed something on a tree close by. She could see some flowers growing on a vine and although they looked pretty she didn’t recognise them as any that she had planted. She stood up and walked over to them in order to examine them closer.

One of the flowers just happened to be at level with her nose and when she looked at it some of the pollen inside was sucked up her nostrils. This began a chain reaction inside of her and she took a couple of steps away. Liam was still there pouting but he saw that there was something wrong with Rina.

Suddenly the giantess let out a small sneeze and quickly covered her nose. She was a little worried and Liam looked over at her. He watched as she slowly moved her hands away from her nose and that’s when he saw it. Her nose was several times larger than it should have been, at first, he thought that she was doing this to try and amuse her. She had specially increased one of her body parts in order to make him laugh. This didn’t seem to be the case as her expression did look worried.

“Your nose,” said Liam as he pointed toward it. “It’s bigger.”

“Oh that,” replied Rina with a nervous smile on her face. “It’s nothing really, nothing to worry about.” Suddenly her right arm began to shake and it quickly grew in size. In the space of a couple of seconds it went from being normal for her body to being easily seven times larger than normal. Her arm was now on the ground and stretched out in front of her. Her hand had grown as well and was in proportion with the rest of her arm. She was even more worried but she tried to keep a brave face. “That happens from time to time.” Suddenly her left foot began to shake like her arm before it suddenly grew in size. It even lifted her off the ground a little as it became ten times its normal size. Her shoe also grew with her but it made her look very odd. Her body looked normal beside her giant nose, arm and foot. She could no longer hide the fact that something was seriously wrong. “You might want to take a step back Liam.”

Re: The Giantess's Garden: Illustrated Story

Liam did as he was told as he took several steps back from Rina. He could see that a few of her body parts were larger than they were supposed to be. He didn’t really know what was happening but he knew that it was bad.

No sooner had Liam stepped away from Rina her body suddenly exploded with growth. She quickly expanded at a rate that was too much even for her. Within a couple of moments, she reached her agreed thirty-foot limit but this was far from the end of her growth spurt. She could do nothing but watch as the world around her shrank with each passing second.

She could do nothing to stop what was happening as she saw that she was taller than the tallest tree near her garden, then it came up to her hips, then her thighs and eventually her knees. Despite this she continued grow rapidly, she could see the worried look on Liam’s face but eventually it became too small for her to even see. Both of them were experiencing a great amount of fear. She didn’t want to step on anyone and he didn’t know just how big she was going to get.

Eventually something began to block Rina’s eyes and at first, she didn’t know what it was. When she focused on it more she was horrified to realise that they were actually clouds. Even when she was able to get a proper look at them she could do this for too long as the clouds became lower and lower in comparison to her.

She could even see most of the world around her as her new increasing vantage point allowed her to see further and further. She could see the entire town of Dunlin that now looked incredibly small to her, she was too big to see people. She was a scared as the oxygen levels were beginning to become low. If she were to collapse she would likely harm a lot of innocent people.

There was one thing that she did notice about her body. It looked much more stretched then it used to be. With the outfit that she wore the top and skirt would blend well but now her body had stretched itself to the point that her midsection was on view. Her arms were also much longer than they should be and they looked thin. She felt very skinny but this seemed to be the least of her worries.

On the ground below Liam could see Rina’s growing foot. He looked up in an attempted to see her head but he couldn’t see above her hips. The rest of her body was too high up for him to see. He was very afraid as he thought that she was going to be stuck like this, any thoughts that he had about school was now nothing more than a foolish idea.

Just as Rina thought that the growth spurt would never end it suddenly stopped. She gave a gasp of relief but she was still scared. She was miles tall and it was a good long time since she had ever been this big. A part of her was afraid that she would suddenly grow again, for now her feet were placed in open fields where nothing could be harmed by them. However, if they were to suddenly grow again they would be doomed.

For the time being she could do nothing but look at the world below her and try not to cause any disasters with her slightest of movements. She didn’t know if she had accidentally stepped on Liam but she had tried her best to ensure his safety. She didn’t know for sure as she couldn’t see him at all.

The people of Dunlin had also noticed what had happened. They gasped as they looked at the colossus that was Rina. There was some fear amongst them as they knew how dangerous someone of that size could be. They had always known that she could grow this large but seeing it like this only added to their fear.

Rina looked around for a few moments before they she began to feel something in her nose. At first, she thought that her nose was going to grow again but she soon realised it was a sneeze. At this size she didn’t want to think about what a sneeze could do, she tried her best to keep it in but she knew that she couldn’t stop it. She held onto her nose with her hands in order to try and minimalize what was about to happen.

Before Rina could fully prepare herself, she let out a very loud sneeze that could be heard for miles in every direction. All of her efforts to prevent or minimalize it was for naught as it had struck at full force. All she could do now was hope that nothing terrible would happen due to the sneeze. She didn’t want to be responsible for a hurricane or anything like that.

Suddenly she began to feel odd again. Rather than it being another sneeze it was something that she felt throughout her body, it was something that she felt quite often. It was the sensation of when she was about to change size and she didn’t want to think about growing any bigger. If she grew again her head would likely lift above the stratosphere and then she would likely suffocate.

Instead of growing again Rina suddenly shrank in size. Rather than shrinking down to her normal size she went down by around ten percent before stopping. She was a little confused and tried to work out what had happened but she suddenly shrank again. Once again it was by ten percent of her current size.

The shrink spurts continued on with Rina losing ten percent every few seconds. It wasn’t long before her head was amongst the clouds again but the next spurt brought it below. Also, her body was returning to it’s normal proportions as she was losing its stretched appearance. Before she could adjust she would shrink again.

On the ground Liam was glad to see that she was shrinking. She had moved away from her home and Dunlin as she grew and he was running back toward her. His fear was disappearing as she continued to shrink. As he ran closer toward her she continued to become smaller and smaller.

By the time Liam reached Rina she was down to around eighty feet in height and was still going down in ten percent shrink spurts. He looked up at her as she continued to shrink and he could see that she had noticed him. He could see how she would make a small pop sound each time a shrink spurt struck her.

“Rina are you ok?” asked Liam as he looked up at her. She was down to around sixty-five feet and still shrinking.

“Y-Yeah I’m alright,” replied Rina. She made another pop sound as she shrank again. This time she was below sixty feet.

Liam could do nothing but watch as his guardian continued to shrink. It was a very short time later before she was back down to her usual height of fifteen feet. However, she had another shrink spurt that brought her down to below her normal size. Then another one came, then another, then another. This was when he realised that she was shrinking smaller than she should be.

When he went over to her she was around five feet tall but another shrink spurt made her seem quite short. She continued to shrink much to his shock and as he went up to her they were at eye level with one another. This only lasted for a few seconds before she was struck by another shrink spurt.

As Rina continued to shrink she eventually became small enough for Liam to handle. Carefully he picked her up as the spurts continued. He feared that she was going to shrink so small that he would no longer be able to see her. Suddenly the shrinking suddenly stopped hut by now she was just over three inches tall. He looked at the tiny figure in his hands and it was hard for him to believe that a few minutes ago she had been so large that the clouds had come up to her hips.

“I-I think I’ve stopped shrinking,” said Rina. Suddenly she had another shrink spurt that put her down to three inches. “No, I guess I had one more spurt left.”

“R-Rina you’re tiny,” replied Liam in shock. “How did this happen?”

“Looks like I didn’t notice that some Bell Flowers grow in my garden.” She crossed her arms and looked a little disappointed. “I’m allergic to them and you just witnessed what happens when I have an allergic reaction.”

“But what’s going to happen now?” He was still in a panic. “What if you stay like this or even worse, shrink even more?”

“Oh, don’t worry about that.” She put on a smile and rubbed the back of her head in order to keep him calm. “This isn’t the first time that this has happened to me. I’ll be back to being big in a few hours, a day at the most.”

“Up to a day? What are we going to do until then?”

“We’ll relax and make this work. Everything will be back to normal before you know it. Well as normal as things can be.” She giggled a little but the truth was that she was vulnerable in this state. She would be dependant on him until she grew again, but she did like spending a bit of time being tiny rather than being larger than everyone else.

Re: The Giantess's Garden: Illustrated Story

Three days passed and Rina was still stuck at her tiny size. To date it was the longest that she had ever been small after an allergic reaction. Life for her and Liam inside of her still gigantic home was difficult as she was not large enough to live in it comfortably. Despite this she continued on as best as she could as she still had her responsibilities as Liam’s guardian.

Now he needed to help her just as much as she helped him. Liam had to carry her around a lot of the time and help her up to the smaller so that she could do what she needed to do. Preparing his own dinners had been difficult, even with her help. Because of this the food that they were having was relatively basic. Even with everything that had happened Rina was still confident that she would grow back to her normal size at any minute, even though it was taking longer than she expected.

One thing that they did have to deal with was one of the town officials arrived at the house to investigate what had happened. One term that they had for Rina living in Dunlin was that she never grew too large. It was why she was on the thirty-foot cap as long as she was within the town limits. When she had grown to miles in height she had gone passed that limit by a very, very large margin.

It took a little convincing for the official to rule that what had happened was an accident. Her size had scared a lot of folks but since she didn’t stay that big for very long she hadn’t been a danger. It also took some more convincing to allow Liam to stay with Rina while she was so tiny. She assured the official that she would grow back to normal at any time and that taking Liam away would not be in his best interest.

Eventually Liam had placed Rina on the floor and he had grabbed a ruler that she had bought him. She stood up straight as he measured her, even with her heels on she was around two and nine tenths inches tall. When he had measured her a couple of days before she had been a full three inches which meant that she had shrunk a further tenth of an inch. This worried Liam a lot while she put on a brave face. There was also a ring close to her that was made for when she had been her larger size. It now looked gigantic in comparison to her.

“Rina you’re smaller than you were yesterday,” said Liam. There was a worried tone to his voice.

“Am I?” replied Rina. “That’s unusual, I would have grown back to normal by now.” She had a relatively happy voice as she kept a brave face. She knew that if she panicked about this it would upset him.

“What are we going to do? You’re still tiny.”

“Oh, don’t worry. I’ll be back to being big before we know it and things will go back to normal. Well as normal as things can get around me.” She knew that she needed to do something to take his mind off of this. She knew that he wouldn’t like it but she felt it was something that needed to be done. “But there is something that we really need to talk about, you know that you have to go to school tomorrow.”

“You’re saying this now?” It annoyed him a little but it was taking his mind off of her tiny size. “You know I don’t want to go.”

“I know you don’t but you have to. Your education is important.” She walked a few steps forward and held onto his finger. He could feel her tiny hands on his finger and it felt surreal. “Please, I’m not doing this to be cruel. I’m doing it because I want you to have the best life. Do it for me.”

Liam fell silent, he thought that in her current state Rina couldn’t stop him from doing whatever he wanted to do. He didn’t want to go to school and he was seriously considering ignoring what she was saying. But he saw her face and he could see the genuine concern that it had. Not since his parents had he had anyone who cared for him as much as she did. He knew that she wanted what was best for him and he gave a sigh.

“Ok Rina, I’ll go,” said Liam. He felt defeated but he knew that ultimately, he was making the right choice.

“Thank you, Liam,” replied Rina. She looked up at him and smiled. “You’ve made me very happy.”

It was going to be a difficult day for them as it had been for the last few. At least for Rina she felt happier knowing that Liam had agreed to go to school. She had already prepared his uniform before she had shrunk and it was still in his makeshift room. He had seen the school while he had been out with her a couple of times, he knew where it was but one thing that did upset her was that she wouldn’t be there to see him off.

The next morning Liam was asleep in his bed, it had taken him a short amount of time to get used to it. He was sleeping peacefully until he felt something touch his face, at first, he tried to ignore it but it continued on. Slowly he opened his eyes and he saw what at first, he thought was a toy. However, he could see that it was moving and he began to realise that it wasn’t a toy.

The tiny figure was Rina who was holding a small stick in her hands. She was using it to poke him in the face as a way to wake him up. She watched as he groaned and slowly sat up, to her he was a giant and she still found it odd that everything was so big to her. She was used to being in a world that was too small for her, now it was the other way around.

“Rise and shine Liam,” said Rina. Her voice was quite loud and she was using it in order to make sure that he was awake. “You’re going to be late for school.”

“Five more minutes,” replied Liam who wanted to lie back down. However, the tiny woman on his bed refused to allow him to do this.
“No can do.” There was a smile on her face as if she enjoyed terrorising him. “You’ve already overslept and now you have to get washed and have your breakfast or else you’ll be late.”

Liam wanted to go back to sleep but he knew that she would just keep poking him with the stick until he got up. Admitting defeat, he slowly got out of his bed and made his way to the bathroom so that he could get washed. She reminded him to pick up his uniform as he left much to his annoyance.

When he was gone Rina used the quilt of the bed in order to climb down to the ground. She was being careful with what she did as she didn’t want to hurt herself. With each day she remained tiny her faith that she would grow back again would fade away a little. She still had confidence but now she was considering that she might not grow back again.

Thankfully Rina’s bathroom had fittings that could be used by a regular sized person. Liam used these to do what he needed to do before he finally got changed into his uniform. It was a mostly black uniform with a red tie and white shirt. The school’s emblem was stitched onto the chest. One thing he noticed was that it was a little big for him but Rina had purposely done this so that he had room to grow.

Eventually Liam stepped out of the bathroom and he could see that Rina had prepared him a bowl of cereal and left the milk out for him. It had taken her a while to prepare all of this thanks to her size. But now she was on the table and she looked at him as he walked in, she smiled at him again as he approached.

“Oh, just look at you,” said Rina. She felt a sense of pride as she looked at him. He felt a little silly with what he was wearing. “You look very smart.”

“I feel stupid wearing this,” replied Liam. He lifted his arms a little and she could see that the jacket he was wearing was a little too big for him. “Everyone’s going to laugh at me when I’m wearing this.”

“They won’t do such a thing. They’re all wearing the same uniform as you. I know that you’re going to make a lot of new friends.” He stayed silent and she knew that he wasn’t looking forward to today. “Come on now, it won’t be bad. Just sit down and have some breakfast, ok.”

“Ok.”

Liam eventually sat down and poured the milk into his cereal. He began to eat it while the tiny woman was standing on the table. She had been poured a small amount of milk that she was drinking herself. She watched as he ate but she knew that he couldn’t take his time that much. He was already running late and he knew that it would look bad if he was late on his first day.
After a few minutes Liam eventually finished eating his breakfast but he was still a little reluctant to go to school. He looked at Rina who was looking at him with her hands on her hips and a smile on her face. She knew that she had to give him some words of confidence before he left.

“Don’t worry Liam,” said Rina. “You’re going to do fine, I just know it. Now give me a kiss goodbye.”

“Ok Rina,” replied Liam with a less than confident voice. He leaned down so that he could kiss the tiny woman. He was careful not to knock her over as he did this and she made sure that she appreciated this. He stood back up and began to make his way to the normal size door.

“Bye Rina.”

“Goodbye Liam, have an amazing time.” She smiled and waved at him, she continued to do this until he shut the door. Then she lowered her hand and gave a small sigh, she knew that if she didn’t grow back to at least a reasonable size soon that Liam would be taken from her as she would be unable to care for him. This did worry her as he had been through a lot in such a short amount of time and she didn’t want him to have to find another home. Her thoughts were put on hold when she felt a strange sensation in both her ears. Before she could properly react to it she felt as they suddenly grew. Within a couple of seconds both of them became as large as her head. Carefully she touched them with her hands and she could feel their enormous size in comparison to the rest of her body. “Well this is interesting.”
