Among Us (N.C.U./Spirals) - Round 3

 Key: MC, FD, FF, Hypno

Description: With all fingers pointed at Midnight, the remaining girls need to figure out how to incapacitate the centuries old succubus. Is this the end of the game?

The Sitting Room
    Midnight had cast her vote for Rayne, even though she still wasn’t convinced that she was behind any of this. Jessy had also cast a much more nervous vote for Rayne…but, to Midnight’s surprise, Rayne, and Laura both raised their hands to vote against Midnight. And finally, a very nervous Abigail slowly raised her finger…and pointed it at Midnight. The succubus looked at the row of girls with a disbelieving smirk, raising her eyebrow. “You’ve got to be kidding me.” She said, more to herself than the others.  

    Abigail cleared her throat. “I...I don’t think so. I guess it’s you, Midnight. I’m sorry”

    Midnight shook her head. “It’s alright, but now you have a very…interesting problem before you.” She said as her smirk turned into a devious grin. “How exactly…DO...four mortal women subdue a succubus?”

    “Get her!” Abigail shouted as she charged the much taller woman. Unfortunately for her, everyone else was too lost in their own thoughts or nervousness to notice Abigail’s call to arms. As a result, no one joined in and the amateur hypnotist ran face first into Midnight as she attempted to tackle her.

    By that point the others finally realized what Abigail had wanted them to do, but were far too intrigued by the spectacle before them to be of any help. Abigail had, in fact, attempted a football style tackle on the succubus...and in response, Midnight simply stood there, arms at her sides as she stared at Abigail in confusion. Abigail, for all her efforts, looked like a cartoon character running face first into a wall. Which, of course, was what hitting the succubus felt like as her body hit the taller woman’s frame.

    “Did you miss the conversation earlier about how I can lift a car?” Midnight asked with an amused smile. “All of you together couldn’t knock me over, now stop this shit before you hurt yourself.”

    Abigail pulled back and hid her blushing face from the others. “Sorry...” she mumbled nervously.

    Midnight shook her head in amusement. “The entertainment value of that will almost make up for your poor voting choices...almost.”  She said with a slight edge to her voice as she turned to sit down in the nearest chair, crossing her outstretched legs and folding her arms across her chest. “I can’t wait to see what you four come up with to solve this little drama.”

    The four young women looked at one another and formed a huddle across the room, occasionally shooting nervous glances at the succubus. “Anyone have any better ideas?” Abigail asked nervously.  

    “We could tie her up?” Jessy said, trying to muffle her voice so that Midnight couldn’t hear her.

    “For the second time in two minutes…I can lift a car. Unless you have some aircraft cable lying around for no reason, nothing you use to hold me down is going to work.” Midnight said sarcastically. She couldn’t really hear what Jessy had said, but after being alive for several thousand years you pick up a few skills…like lip reading. A secret she had every intention of keeping to herself for entertainment purposes.  

    Jessy’s face turned a deep shade of red as she refused to meet Midnight’s gaze. At the same time, Rayne glanced back at the succubus and then turned to the others with a serious expression. “I have an idea.”

    Midnight raised an eyebrow and sat up in her chair, leaning forward to show off her cleavage to the young freshman she knew was crushing hard on her. “Oh, have you now?” she asked playfully. “And what makes you think you can take me down, hmm?”

    Rayne swallowed hard and slowly moved in front of Midnight while the others formed a small half circle behind her and watched. Rayne summoned all the confidence she could and leaned in closer to Midnight. “What makes you think I can’t take you down?” Despite all of her confidence, her voice still betrayed just how nervous she really was.

    Midnight smiled and sat up in her chair again, the height difference of the two put Midnight at chest level for Rayne as she gave her a confident smile “Your trembling tone for one.” The succubus didn’t even bother to try looking the young woman in the eyes first. Instead she let her gaze slide along Rayne’s bikini clad top half. Although Rayne had dried off from her dip in the hot tub some time ago, the bikini top still managed to show off her toned and muscular body, and put her chest prominently on display.

    Rayne blushed as she leaned in close to the succubus, gently placing her hand’s on Midnight’s shoulders. “I’ll be honest, I don’t think I can do it either.” she admitted “Sut we are going to try, and try, and try…” she continued seductively, moving closer and closer to the object of her affections. Her pulse was racing and it was taking every ounce of willpower she had to keep her voice even. “Sooner or later one of us is going to figure out a way to do it… even if it takes all weekend.” She finished, her face just inches from Midnight’s.

    Midnight couldn’t help but smile at the way Rayne was behaving. It was almost flattering, like seeing a lovestruck puppy desperately trying to express itself, and it made Midnight’s attitude soften. She had to admit she was curious where the young woman’s train of thought was going at this point. “You’ll keep trying, I’m sure…” she answered seductively. “You might even succeed.” she admitted, almost as if she was challenging Rayne.

    Rayne’s face flushed as her gaze never wavered. “Before that happens, though...”  she started, looking into Midnight’s eyes steadily, but nervously. “I wanted to thank you for all you’ve done this weekend. For helping me out with Nadia…and…” she trailed off, averting her eyes for just a moment.

    “And what?” Midnight asked in a supportive, almost nurturing, voice. For a few moments, she seemed to forget the situation that she was in.

    Rayne swallowed hard and took a deep breath, she was nearly nose to nose with Midnight now, and her hands had moved gently to the older woman’s neck in an almost tender, romantic embrace. “And for making me feel beautiful…even around you.” she said honestly.

    Midnight’s smile softened. “Oh honey.”  She said soothingly, genuinely trying to comfort the nervous young woman. “You really are beautifuuuuuuu -” She was cut off in mid sentence as Rayne leaned in and began to kiss her. Midnight’s eyes flew open in surprise for a split second before a smile washed over her face and she began to return the kiss. The young freshman’s advance was passionate and deep as her tongue greeted Midnight’s softly. It was an innocent but pleasurable kiss, and Midnight closed her eyes and allowed herself to sink into the experience.

    Rayne on the other hand, was beet red and pouring all of her pent up arousal and attraction, all of her frustration and annoyance, and even a little bit more arousal, into the kiss. She let everything go and embraced the succubus with all she had as she deepened the kiss even more. She could feel Midnight’s shoulders slump as a soft sigh escaped her lips. She knew Midnight was enjoying the experience, she could feel her deepening and responding to the kiss. It was the happiest, and horniest, she’d been in weeks…it was almost a shame it had to end.

    Without warning, Rayne broke the kiss and pulled back hard, yanking the succubus’s head forward. “Sleep!” She said as commanding and forcefully as she could manage.

    Midnight’s mind reeled in shock at the rapid break of the kiss and sudden lunge forward. Her eyes flew open only to see Rayne’s chest rapidly moving in towards her face, or was it the other way around? But there was something else, a voice in the back of her mind that she thought...sounded like Rayne’s? It was a single word that was barely registered by her conscious mind. “Sleep.” It said…she was sure of it. And then her eyes slammed shut as her head came to rest between Rayne’s breasts. A soft sigh escaped her lips as her shoulders slumped and her arms fell limp at her sides. “Yes… sleep…” was the last thing to go through her mind before she sank into a deep hypnotic slumber.

    Rayne held on to Midnight as tightly as she could and was nearly shaking with a mix of nervousness, tension, and arousal. “I did it...” She thought to herself as she nervously waited for Midnight to pull her head back and make a snarky comment. But the succubus remained completely limp in her arms. “I actually did it!” She screamed internally, not wanting to make any sudden moves that would wake up her prey.

    Behind her, the others were simply staring at the scene before them with a mix of shock and confusion etched on their faces.

    “Holy shit, when I said you two should just fuck already I wasn’t serious!” Abigail said in utter shock...and much louder than she should have.

    The other two girls hushed her immediately and Rayne shot her a glare that could have melted a block of ice. Abigail shrank back in embarrassment and mouthed “sorry” to the others.  

    Rayne gently pulled Midnight’s face out of her cleavage and tilted the sleeping succubus back into her chair. She couldn’t help but notice that even her tail was limp and loose on the ground, not moving or even twitching. This was even more strange to her, over the course of the weekend she’d noticed that Midnight’s tail was almost never still. It was always swaying, twitching, or sliding…now it was completely still, completely asleep. Just like its owner.

    “That’s a girl…” Rayne said softly. “Just sleep...just sink into a nice deep sleep, and let your mind relive that kiss again and again, taking you deeper and deeper every time.” She waited for a response from the succubus, but she was still and silent save for her breathing. The only movement Rayne noticed was her body sinking deeper into the chair.  

    Rayne finally turned around to the other girls with a more serious look. “Well...now what do we do?” She asked in confusion. “I don’t think I can program her to stay out for the whole weekend.” At that point she realized that  just getting Midnight under was only one of many issues they had in their goal to incapacite the succubus.

    “We also have the issue of Eve and Eluran.” Jessy said, pointing in the direction of the bunk room where the other two girls had been placed. “If we are right that anyone who’s been hypnotized could have suggestions in them, then we’ll need to incapacitate them like we did the others.”

    “We can just have Midnight…oh…” Laura started before realizing the flaw in her plan.

    Jessy glanced at Midnight and then back at the others. “Can we have her drain them while she is hypnotized?”

    “I’d really rather we NOT supercharge the succubus that I just barely managed to incapacitate, thank you very much!” Rayne said in annoyance.  

    Abigail spoke up cautiously. “I...might actually have a solution.” she said with a nervous smile as she pulled out her cell phone. As the others watched, Abigail flipped through her phone and opened up an app. “This app can play a binaural tone if we rig up a pair of speakers in the bunk room, one on each side. It should keep anyone in the room in a deep trance until we turn it off. All we would have to do is make sure my phone is plugged in and we’d be good to go.”

    The girls all looked at one another and shrugged. “Alright,”  Rayne said to Abigail. “There’s a stereo on the shelf, grab that and set up the speakers in the room with the other girls. We’ll carry Midnight in.” She said, nodding Laura and Jessy.

    “Right!” Abigail said bouncing over to the shelf and grabbing the stereo while the others moved over to Midnight.

    "You two get her legs.” Rayne said, moving behind the chair that Midnight was slumped over in. “I’ll get the rest of her. Ready…one…two…three...holy shit is she heavy!” Rayne grunted as she struggled to get Midnight out of the chair. Ultimately the three of them failed, Laura and Jessy hadn’t even managed to move her legs.

    “How can she be this heavy?” Jessy asked in surprise.

    Rayne laughed to herself. “Well, she did say she could lift a car…all that muscle has to add up. Ok new plan, everyone come over here, we’re all going to have to lift her up and drag her.” The three girls all moved to Midnight’s torso and, after another count of three, managed to lift Midnight up just far enough to lay her face down against Rayne. Once again the succubus’s face landed in between Rayne’s breasts.

    With Rayne supporting the bulk of Midnight’s weight, and the other two supporting her torso, they were able to drag the larger woman into the room and drop her onto the nearest bunk.  

    All three girls landed on the floor, exhausted and laughing at their accomplishment as Abigail returned with a nervous smile. “Alright…are we ready?”

    Rayne nodded as the three stood up and left the room as quickly as they could. Abigail started the app on her phone and the room was filled with similar yet distinct humming tones, one coming out of the speaker on the right side of the room, and the other out of the left. The effect would make anyone between the speakers sink into a deep hypnotic state. Of course…Abigail was between the speakers.

    She realized the flaw in her setup almost instantly and began to run to the door as quickly as she could. But every step she took seemed to get harder, and harder. The door seemed so far away to her. She could see the others standing by the door, all reaching out to her, but her vision was getting blurry, and foggy. She could feel a tired smile washing over her face as she slowed down a bit. “I think...I’m gonna…” she started as the smile slipped from her face, “take a…nap…is that…okay…” Her sentence stopped. She could feel her eyes slipping closed…just as a strong hand grabbed her shirt and pulled her forward.

    The sudden motion caused her eyes to fly open in shock as she saw Rayne pulling her into the main room while Jessy and Laura slammed the door closed. The large wooden door muffled the sound almost completely.

Midnight was eliminated.

    Abigail smiled at Rayne.“Thank you!” she said genuinely as she patted her arm and  paused to look around the room curiously.

    “What?” Jessy asked. “What is it?”

    “I don’t know.” Abigail started as she looked at the others. “I guess I was just kind of looking for some kind of sign from the universe that we had gotten both hypnotists. That we could actually relax for the rest of the weekend and not worry about anything.”

    “What, like a giant banner overhead that says ‘Victory’?” Rayne asked sarcastically.

    “Honestly…” Abigail said with a laugh “Yeah that would be great!”

    Rayne rolled her eyes and flopped against the wall to rest for a moment, letting out a tired laugh. “Wouldn’t that be great. Unfortunately this isn’t a video game.”

Round 3:

The Kitchen
    Some time later Rayne entered the kitchen. She had changed into a pair of jeans and a flannel shirt that she had tied around her midriff to show off her belly. She wasn’t trying to show off for anyone, it just made her feel sexy.  

    She heated up some hot cocoa and sat down, staring out at the trees as they swayed in the wind. “On any other weekend this place would probably be super calming.” She thought to herself as she took a sip of the cocoa.  

    She couldn’t help but think back to the trance she had pulled on Midnight. It had been a terrifying situation and a major thrill ride all rolled into one. On one hand she, an ameteur hypnotist, had managed to trick and trance a succubus. A succubus! But on the other hand, she thought she had taken advantage of the genuine tender side of the woman who had done nothing but protect her all weekend. Deep down she was sure that Midnight was innocent, but the evidence against her was overwhelming. She’d had to vote for her.

    As she continued to sip her cocoa, her mind shifted back to the feeling of kissing the sexy older woman, and then the power trip she got as she felt her powerful body slowly relax while her mind slipped into trance...into helplessness. Her guilt washed away pretty quickly after that, and once she finished her cocoa she slowly rose from her seat and left the kitchen, a devious smile playing on her face.

The Sitting Room:
    Abigail was curled up in one of the two reading nooks that had been made out of the window frames. She was deep into a mystery novel with an abundance of twists and turns and just a hint of romance. She had just reached the climax of the story, the detective had just announced that he knew who the killer was! She quickly turned the page, eager to finally get the pay off she had been waiting so long to receive…

    “Abigail! If you can hear me…come to the bathroom NOW!” Rayne shouted over the intercom.

    “Hurry!” Came Laura’s voice over the intercom a second later. Before the intercom went silent, she thought she heard bickering from the two girls, implying that they were both in the same room.

    Abigail rolled her eyes and slammed her book closed. “For fucks sake!” she shouted angrily as she stood up. “What now!?” She asked no one in particular as she stormed out of the room.

The Bathroom:
    Abigail gave the bathroom door a good hard shove, causing it to slam into the wall as she barged in with a look of anger on her face. “What…do you two…fuck…” Her tone quickly shifted as she saw Rayne and Laura both standing over Jessy, who was deeply asleep on the bathroom floor. Both of them looked like they were ready to kill the other.

    “It’s Laura!” Rayne shouted, never taking her eyes off the curly haired blonde in front of her. “I saw her do it!”

    “She’s lying.” Laura said in a calmer voice as she glanced at Abigail, trying to keep her guard up around the more powerful Rayne. “I walked in on her hypnotizing Jessy. It was her all along!”

    Abigail sighed and softly whispered to herself. “I swear when this vacation is over I’m going on vacation. Or taking up heavy drinking. Or both.” She cleared her head and glared at the two girls, throwing her hands up. “Alright…alright…let’s do this bullshit one last time. Pick her up…” she said, pointing to Jessy, “and we’ll carry her to…”

    “No!” Rayne said sternly.

    “I’m sorry, what?” Abigail asked, feeling like her authority had been challenged. She was, after all, the oldest by at least three years. That should have given her authority…right?

    “I’m not giving her a chance to pull some sneaky shit.” Rayne said, keeping herself in as tight a combat stance as possible. “We are settling this here and now, and once she’s out we’ll carry them both back to the bunks.”

    “I’m not letting her out of my sight.” Laura said, looking equally determined. “She’s managed to not only hypnotize five people this weekend, but convince the rest of us to vote out two others! This has to end here and now!”

    “Really?” Abigail asked annoyed. “In the bathroom?”

    “Yes!” Both girls demanded in unison, proving that even enemies can agree sometimes.

    Abigail sighed and leaned against the bathroom wall. “Definitely taking up heavy drinking after this. Fine, Laura, what did you see?”

    “Why does she get to go first?” Rayne spit out as she looked away from Laura for a split second to glare at Abigail.

    “Because she is on my left and I read left to right…you’ll get your chance, just wait a damn minute.” Abigail shouted back, clearly ready to be done with this.

    Laura took a few steps back, giving her several feet of space between her and Rayne, which allowed her to glance at Abigail more freely. “After the last vote I went over to the fire pit and watched the fire while the sun set. I wanted to relax after the day we’ve all had. After about an hour I came here to use the bathroom, and when I walked in I could hear Rayne and Jessy talking. It sounded muffled, like they were whispering. I didn’t want to scare them so I tried to be as quiet as I could, but I was curious. So I peeked around the corner to see Rayne was pinning Jessy to the wall, she had her arms over her head and was just keeping her pinned there.”

    “That’s a lie!” Rayne shouted.

    “You’ll get your turn, just shut the hell up for a minute!” Abigail replied angrily, trying to keep the two girls from killing one another. Although she had to admit, the option was becoming more appealing. “Go on Laura, what happened next?”

    “Well, what I saw didn’t really look like hypnosis, it looked more like they were flirting. Rayne had her pinned but it was more like she was teasing her, and Jessy seemed…embarrassed, but receptive. I mean it should be pretty obvious to you by now that Rayne swings both ways.”

    Abigail saw Rayne clench her jaw and was surprised that the younger freshman held her composure. “A few seconds later I saw them start kissing so I figured I’d give them some privacy. As I finished up and was watching my hands I heard what sounded like Rayne yell “Sleep” and then a sigh. I kind of froze for a moment and listened, but nothing happened. Then a second later, Rayne came around the corner and was dragging Jessy, who was all limp and sleepy. As soon as she saw me she dropped her, pretty much where she is now, and we just kind of stared at one another, then both ran for the intercom. She got there first.” Laura finished, glaring at Rayne once again.

    Abigail watched Laura but noticed Rayne shaking her head and clenching her jaw even more tightly. “Rayne, I assume you have a different story to tell?”

    “You’re damn right I do!” The freshman said angrily. “I went to the kitchen to make some hot cocoa and relax. After that I think it’s pretty obvious why a person would come into the bathroom. But when I came in, Jessy was on her knees and staring up at Laura who was standing over her, holding her finger up in front of Jessy’s eyes. I must have literally walked in right at the end, because as I tried to figure out what I was seeing, Laura touched Jessy on the forehead and told her to sleep. She pretty much just sank to the floor right where she is now. I yelled at Laura, called her out and then we both ran to the intercom to call you. Now you're up to speed.”

    “She’s lying.” Laura said calmly. “She’s been suspicious since the very start of this trip! She’s been accused of hypnotizing every single person so far! Nadia knew that, that was why she was pushing so hard to accuse her!”

    “Then why did Midnight defend me?” Rayne asked with a smug smile.

    “Midnight was just as taken with you as you are with her!” Laura replied with an equally smug smile. “She just did a better job of hiding it!” Rayne glared at Laura again and stuck her tongue out at her like a small child. “And look what happened to Midnight, you set her up! Oh my god!” Laura shouted as a look of realization washed over her face. “You set her up, and then you were the one that hypnotized her after she was voted out! You didn’t even hesitate, it was like you had a plan all along. You just didn’t have the opportunity to try it until then!”

    Abigail raised an eyebrow and glanced at Rayne. “She does have a point, you do look really suspicious, you know?”

    “I’ve been set up!” Rayne shouted, realizing that she might lose this one. “I tried to stay away from everyone after Nadia accused me. No one seemed comfortable with me around, so I did my best to avoid everyone for THEIR comfort! Not mine! Laura knew that and took advantage of it. All this time while people were making accusations she just sat in the background and let us do the work for her! Holy shit we voted out the two most capable hypnotists because of it! A stage hypnotist and a succubus, she’d have no chance against either of them. She got us to do the work for her!”

    “I wasn’t the one that made any accusations against you, in fact last time I was asleep! You even saw me!” Laura said, pointing to Abigail.

    “I did…” Abigail admitted with a sigh. “I just don’t know, Rayne. Everything that’s happened...” Abigail could only look at the freshman and shake her head. “I just don’t know.”

    “Well we need to end this right now, one way or another!” Rayne shouted. “I vote Laura!”

    “And I vote Rayne!” Laura responded, equally as forceful before they both looked at Abigail.

    “You’re the deciding vote! Choose!” Rayne shouted, clearly ready for this to end.

    Abigail looked from Rayne to Laura and sighed. “Fuck.”

    Who will she choose? That is actually up to you, dear reader! This entire story has been driven by fan responses, and now we’ve reached the final poll! Was the hypnotist really Rayne all along? Or has Laura managed to fly under everyone’s radar this whole time? Will the hypnotists prevail? Or will the last two campers finally be able to relax on their weekend? This is all up to you, the final poll can be found here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/45804682

To be Concluded!

    The next chapter will be the final installment in this series, but in the weeks following I will be posting the ‘how it really happened’ chapters. You’ll get to see exactly what went on behind the scenes, and how the two hypnotists managed to entrance their victims!

    Midnight shook her head in amusement. “The entertainment value of that will almost make up for your poor voting choices...almost.”  She said with a slight edge to her voice as she turned to sit down in the nearest chair, crossing her outstretched legs and folding her arms across her chest. “I can’t wait to see what you four come up with to solve this little drama.”

    The four young women looked at one another and formed a huddle across the room, occasionally shooting nervous glances at the succubus. “Anyone have any better ideas?” Abigail asked nervously.

    Jessy’s face turned a deep shade of red as she refused to meet Midnight’s gaze. At the same time, Rayne glanced back at the succubus and then turned to the others with a serious expression. “I have an idea.”

    Midnight raised an eyebrow and sat up in her chair, leaning forward to show off her cleavage to the young freshman she knew was crushing hard on her. “Oh, have you now?” she asked playfully. “And what makes you think you can take me down, hmm?”

    Rayne swallowed hard and slowly moved in front of Midnight while the others formed a small half circle behind her and watched.

    Rayne blushed as she leaned in close to the succubus, gently placing her hand’s on Midnight’s shoulders. “I’ll be honest, I don’t think I can do it either.” she admitted “Sut we are going to try, and try, and try…” she continued seductively, moving closer and closer to the object of her affections. Her pulse was racing and it was taking every ounce of willpower she had to keep her voice even. “Sooner or later one of us is going to figure out a way to do it… even if it takes all weekend.” She finished, her face just inches from Midnight’s.

    Midnight couldn’t help but smile at the way Rayne was behaving. It was almost flattering, like seeing a lovestruck puppy desperately trying to express itself, and it made Midnight’s attitude soften.

For helping me out with Nadia…and…” she trailed off, averting her eyes for just a moment.

    “And what?” Midnight asked in a supportive, almost nurturing, voice. For a few moments, she seemed to forget the situation that she was in.

    Rayne swallowed hard and took a deep breath, she was nearly nose to nose with Midnight now, and her hands had moved gently to the older woman’s neck in an almost tender, romantic embrace. “And for making me feel beautiful…even around you.” she said honestly.

    Without warning, Rayne broke the kiss and pulled back hard, yanking the succubus’s head forward. “Sleep!” She said as commanding and forcefully as she could manage.

    Midnight’s mind reeled in shock at the rapid break of the kiss and sudden lunge forward. Her eyes flew open only to see Rayne’s chest rapidly moving in towards her face, or was it the other way around? But there was something else, a voice in the back of her mind that she thought...sounded like Rayne’s? It was a single word that was barely registered by her conscious mind. “Sleep.” It said…she was sure of it. And then her eyes slammed shut as her head came to rest between Rayne’s breasts. A soft sigh escaped her lips as her shoulders slumped and her arms fell limp at her sides. “Yes… sleep…” was the last thing to go through her mind before she sank into a deep hypnotic slumber.

    Rayne held on to Midnight as tightly as she could and was nearly shaking with a mix of nervousness, tension, and arousal. “I did it...” She thought to herself as she nervously waited for Midnight to pull her head back and make a snarky comment. But the succubus remained completely limp in her arms. “I actually did it!” She screamed internally, not wanting to make any sudden moves that would wake up her prey.

    Behind her, the others were simply staring at the scene before them with a mix of shock and confusion etched on their faces.

    “Holy shit, when I said you two should just fuck already I wasn’t serious!” Abigail said in utter shock...and much louder than she should have.

    The other two girls hushed her immediately and Rayne shot her a glare that could have melted a block of ice. Abigail shrank back in embarrassment and mouthed “sorry” to the others. 

    Rayne gently pulled Midnight’s face out of her cleavage and tilted the sleeping succubus back into her chair. She couldn’t help but notice that even her tail was limp and loose on the ground, not moving or even twitching. This was even more strange to her, over the course of the weekend she’d noticed that Midnight’s tail was almost never still. It was always swaying, twitching, or sliding…now it was completely still, completely asleep. Just like its owner.

    “That’s a girl…” Rayne said softly. “Just sleep...just sink into a nice deep sleep, and let your mind relive that kiss again and again, taking you deeper and deeper every time.” She waited for a response from the succubus, but she was still and silent save for her breathing. The only movement Rayne noticed was her body sinking deeper into the chair. 

    Rayne finally turned around to the other girls with a more serious look. “Well...now what do we do?” She asked in confusion. “I don’t think I can program her to stay out for the whole weekend.” At that point she realized that  just getting Midnight under was only one of many issues they had in their goal to incapacite the succubus.

    “We also have the issue of Eve and Eluran.” Jessy said, pointing in the direction of the bunk room where the other two girls had been placed. “If we are right that anyone who’s been hypnotized could have suggestions in them, then we’ll need to incapacitate them like we did the others.”

    “We can just have Midnight…oh…” Laura started before realizing the flaw in her plan.

    Jessy glanced at Midnight and then back at the others. “Can we have her drain them while she is hypnotized?”

    “I’d really rather we NOT supercharge the succubus that I just barely managed to incapacitate, thank you very much!” Rayne said in annoyance. 

    Abigail spoke up cautiously. “I...might actually have a solution.” she said with a nervous smile as she pulled out her cell phone. As the others watched, Abigail flipped through her phone and opened up an app. “This app can play a binaural tone if we rig up a pair of speakers in the bunk room, one on each side. It should keep anyone in the room in a deep trance until we turn it off. All we would have to do is make sure my phone is plugged in and we’d be good to go.”

    The girls all looked at one another and shrugged. “Alright,”  Rayne said to Abigail. “There’s a stereo on the shelf, grab that and set up the speakers in the room with the other girls. We’ll carry Midnight in.” She said, nodding Laura and Jessy.

    “Right!” Abigail said bouncing over to the shelf and grabbing the stereo while the others moved over to Midnight.

    "You two get her legs.” Rayne said, moving behind the chair that Midnight was slumped over in. “I’ll get the rest of her. Ready…one…two…three...holy shit is she heavy!” Rayne grunted as she struggled to get Midnight out of the chair. Ultimately the three of them failed, Laura and Jessy hadn’t even managed to move her legs.

    “How can she be this heavy?” Jessy asked in surprise.

    Rayne laughed to herself. “Well, she did say she could lift a car…all that muscle has to add up. Ok new plan, everyone come over here, we’re all going to have to lift her up and drag her.” The three girls all moved to Midnight’s torso and, after another count of three, managed to lift Midnight up just far enough to lay her face down against Rayne. Once again the succubus’s face landed in between Rayne’s breasts.

    With Rayne supporting the bulk of Midnight’s weight, and the other two supporting her torso, they were able to drag the larger woman into the room and drop her onto the nearest bunk. 

    All three girls landed on the floor, exhausted and laughing at their accomplishment as Abigail returned with a nervous smile. “Alright…are we ready?”

    Rayne nodded as the three stood up and left the room as quickly as they could. Abigail started the app on her phone and the room was filled with similar yet distinct humming tones, one coming out of the speaker on the right side of the room, and the other out of the left. The effect would make anyone between the speakers sink into a deep hypnotic state. Of course…Abigail was between the speakers.

    She realized the flaw in her setup almost instantly and began to run to the door as quickly as she could. But every step she took seemed to get harder, and harder. The door seemed so far away to her. She could see the others standing by the door, all reaching out to her, but her vision was getting blurry, and foggy. She could feel a tired smile washing over her face as she slowed down a bit. “I think...I’m gonna…” she started as the smile slipped from her face, “take a…nap…is that…okay…” Her sentence stopped. She could feel her eyes slipping closed…just as a strong hand grabbed her shirt and pulled her forward.

    The sudden motion caused her eyes to fly open in shock as she saw Rayne pulling her into the main room while Jessy and Laura slammed the door closed. The large wooden door muffled the sound almost completely.

Midnight was eliminated.

    Abigail smiled at Rayne.“Thank you!” she said genuinely as she patted her arm and  paused to look around the room curiously.

    “What?” Jessy asked. “What is it?”

    “I don’t know.” Abigail started as she looked at the others. “I guess I was just kind of looking for some kind of sign from the universe that we had gotten both hypnotists. That we could actually relax for the rest of the weekend and not worry about anything.”

    “What, like a giant banner overhead that says ‘Victory’?” Rayne asked sarcastically.

    “Honestly…” Abigail said with a laugh “Yeah that would be great!”

    Rayne rolled her eyes and flopped against the wall to rest for a moment, letting out a tired laugh. “Wouldn’t that be great. Unfortunately this isn’t a video game.”

Round 3:

The Kitchen
    Some time later Rayne entered the kitchen. She had changed into a pair of jeans and a flannel shirt that she had tied around her midriff to show off her belly. She wasn’t trying to show off for anyone, it just made her feel sexy. 

    She heated up some hot cocoa and sat down, staring out at the trees as they swayed in the wind. “On any other weekend this place would probably be super calming.” She thought to herself as she took a sip of the cocoa. 

    She couldn’t help but think back to the trance she had pulled on Midnight. It had been a terrifying situation and a major thrill ride all rolled into one. On one hand she, an ameteur hypnotist, had managed to trick and trance a succubus. A succubus! But on the other hand, she thought she had taken advantage of the genuine tender side of the woman who had done nothing but protect her all weekend. Deep down she was sure that Midnight was innocent, but the evidence against her was overwhelming. She’d had to vote for her.

    As she continued to sip her cocoa, her mind shifted back to the feeling of kissing the sexy older woman, and then the power trip she got as she felt her powerful body slowly relax while her mind slipped into trance...into helplessness. Her guilt washed away pretty quickly after that, and once she finished her cocoa she slowly rose from her seat and left the kitchen, a devious smile playing on her face.

The Sitting Room:
    Abigail was curled up in one of the two reading nooks that had been made out of the window frames. She was deep into a mystery novel with an abundance of twists and turns and just a hint of romance. She had just reached the climax of the story, the detective had just announced that he knew who the killer was! She quickly turned the page, eager to finally get the pay off she had been waiting so long to receive…

    “Abigail! If you can hear me…come to the bathroom NOW!” Rayne shouted over the intercom.

    “Hurry!” Came Laura’s voice over the intercom a second later. Before the intercom went silent, she thought she heard bickering from the two girls, implying that they were both in the same room.

    Abigail rolled her eyes and slammed her book closed. “For fucks sake!” she shouted angrily as she stood up. “What now!?” She asked no one in particular as she stormed out of the room.

The Bathroom:
    Abigail gave the bathroom door a good hard shove, causing it to slam into the wall as she barged in with a look of anger on her face. “What…do you two…fuck…” Her tone quickly shifted as she saw Rayne and Laura both standing over Jessy, who was deeply asleep on the bathroom floor. Both of them looked like they were ready to kill the other.

    “It’s Laura!” Rayne shouted, never taking her eyes off the curly haired blonde in front of her. “I saw her do it!”

    “She’s lying.” Laura said in a calmer voice as she glanced at Abigail, trying to keep her guard up around the more powerful Rayne. “I walked in on her hypnotizing Jessy. It was her all along!”

    Abigail sighed and softly whispered to herself. “I swear when this vacation is over I’m going on vacation. Or taking up heavy drinking. Or both.” She cleared her head and glared at the two girls, throwing her hands up. “Alright…alright…let’s do this bullshit one last time. Pick her up…” she said, pointing to Jessy, “and we’ll carry her to…”

    “No!” Rayne said sternly.

    “I’m sorry, what?” Abigail asked, feeling like her authority had been challenged. She was, after all, the oldest by at least three years. That should have given her authority…right?

    “I’m not giving her a chance to pull some sneaky shit.” Rayne said, keeping herself in as tight a combat stance as possible. “We are settling this here and now, and once she’s out we’ll carry them both back to the bunks.”

    “I’m not letting her out of my sight.” Laura said, looking equally determined. “She’s managed to not only hypnotize five people this weekend, but convince the rest of us to vote out two others! This has to end here and now!”

    “Really?” Abigail asked annoyed. “In the bathroom?”

    “Yes!” Both girls demanded in unison, proving that even enemies can agree sometimes.

    Abigail sighed and leaned against the bathroom wall. “Definitely taking up heavy drinking after this. Fine, Laura, what did you see?”

    “Why does she get to go first?” Rayne spit out as she looked away from Laura for a split second to glare at Abigail.

    “Because she is on my left and I read left to right…you’ll get your chance, just wait a damn minute.” Abigail shouted back, clearly ready to be done with this.

    Laura took a few steps back, giving her several feet of space between her and Rayne, which allowed her to glance at Abigail more freely. “After the last vote I went over to the fire pit and watched the fire while the sun set. I wanted to relax after the day we’ve all had. After about an hour I came here to use the bathroom, and when I walked in I could hear Rayne and Jessy talking. It sounded muffled, like they were whispering. I didn’t want to scare them so I tried to be as quiet as I could, but I was curious. So I peeked around the corner to see Rayne was pinning Jessy to the wall, she had her arms over her head and was just keeping her pinned there.”

    “That’s a lie!” Rayne shouted.

    “You’ll get your turn, just shut the hell up for a minute!” Abigail replied angrily, trying to keep the two girls from killing one another. Although she had to admit, the option was becoming more appealing. “Go on Laura, what happened next?”

    “Well, what I saw didn’t really look like hypnosis, it looked more like they were flirting. Rayne had her pinned but it was more like she was teasing her, and Jessy seemed…embarrassed, but receptive. I mean it should be pretty obvious to you by now that Rayne swings both ways.”

    Abigail saw Rayne clench her jaw and was surprised that the younger freshman held her composure. “A few seconds later I saw them start kissing so I figured I’d give them some privacy. As I finished up and was watching my hands I heard what sounded like Rayne yell “Sleep” and then a sigh. I kind of froze for a moment and listened, but nothing happened. Then a second later, Rayne came around the corner and was dragging Jessy, who was all limp and sleepy. As soon as she saw me she dropped her, pretty much where she is now, and we just kind of stared at one another, then both ran for the intercom. She got there first.” Laura finished, glaring at Rayne once again.

    Abigail watched Laura but noticed Rayne shaking her head and clenching her jaw even more tightly. “Rayne, I assume you have a different story to tell?”

    “You’re damn right I do!” The freshman said angrily. “I went to the kitchen to make some hot cocoa and relax. After that I think it’s pretty obvious why a person would come into the bathroom. But when I came in, Jessy was on her knees and staring up at Laura who was standing over her, holding her finger up in front of Jessy’s eyes. I must have literally walked in right at the end, because as I tried to figure out what I was seeing, Laura touched Jessy on the forehead and told her to sleep. She pretty much just sank to the floor right where she is now. I yelled at Laura, called her out and then we both ran to the intercom to call you. Now you're up to speed.”

    “She’s lying.” Laura said calmly. “She’s been suspicious since the very start of this trip! She’s been accused of hypnotizing every single person so far! Nadia knew that, that was why she was pushing so hard to accuse her!”

    “Then why did Midnight defend me?” Rayne asked with a smug smile.

    “Midnight was just as taken with you as you are with her!” Laura replied with an equally smug smile. “She just did a better job of hiding it!” Rayne glared at Laura again and stuck her tongue out at her like a small child. “And look what happened to Midnight, you set her up! Oh my god!” Laura shouted as a look of realization washed over her face. “You set her up, and then you were the one that hypnotized her after she was voted out! You didn’t even hesitate, it was like you had a plan all along. You just didn’t have the opportunity to try it until then!”

    Abigail raised an eyebrow and glanced at Rayne. “She does have a point, you do look really suspicious, you know?”

    “I’ve been set up!” Rayne shouted, realizing that she might lose this one. “I tried to stay away from everyone after Nadia accused me. No one seemed comfortable with me around, so I did my best to avoid everyone for THEIR comfort! Not mine! Laura knew that and took advantage of it. All this time while people were making accusations she just sat in the background and let us do the work for her! Holy shit we voted out the two most capable hypnotists because of it! A stage hypnotist and a succubus, she’d have no chance against either of them. She got us to do the work for her!”

    “I wasn’t the one that made any accusations against you, in fact last time I was asleep! You even saw me!” Laura said, pointing to Abigail.

    “I did…” Abigail admitted with a sigh. “I just don’t know, Rayne. Everything that’s happened...” Abigail could only look at the freshman and shake her head. “I just don’t know.”

    “Well we need to end this right now, one way or another!” Rayne shouted. “I vote Laura!”

    “And I vote Rayne!” Laura responded, equally as forceful before they both looked at Abigail.

    “You’re the deciding vote! Choose!” Rayne shouted, clearly ready for this to end.

    Abigail looked from Rayne to Laura and sighed. “Fuck.”

    Who will she choose? That is actually up to you, dear reader! This entire story has been driven by fan responses, and now we’ve reached the final poll! Was the hypnotist really Rayne all along? Or has Laura managed to fly under everyone’s radar this whole time? Will the hypnotists prevail? Or will the last two campers finally be able to relax on their weekend? This is all up to you, the final poll can be found here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/45804682

To be Concluded!

    The next chapter will be the final installment in this series, but in the weeks following I will be posting the ‘how it really happened’ chapters. You’ll get to see exactly what went on behind the scenes, and how the two hypnotists managed to entrance their victims!
