Amanda,a teenage scientist,invents a potion to turn her into a muscular amazon.
As I stood before the bubbling cauldron, I couldn’t believe that the moment had finally come.
For months, I’ve been slaving away in my basement laboratory, trying to create the perfect potion that would transform me into a muscular amazon warrior.
I’d always been fascinated by the amazons in fantasy tales and had dreamed of becoming one myself.
Now, with my potion complete, my dream is about to come true!
I took a deep breath and looked at the worn leather notebook in my hands.
I’d followed its instructions to the letter, tweaking them here and there as I refined my formula.
Now, there was just one more ingredient to add.
I turned to Emily, who was standing beside me.
“Are you sure you want to do this?”
I asked her.
There’s no turning back after this.”
She nodded, her blond hair bouncing up and down.
“I’m sure,” she said.
“You’re my best friend, and I’ll always support you, no matter what.”
I gave her a grateful look before turning back to the cauldron.
I took one last glance at my notes before carefully setting them aside.
I couldn’t afford to make any mistakes now.
The final ingredient was a volatile catalyst that needed to be added at just the right moment or the whole potion would blow up in my face.
And I didn’t mean that figuratively.
One of my earlier experiments had ended with me having to replace half of the laboratory equipment down here.
It was a miracle nothing worse had happened, actually.
But that disaster had taught me to be more careful, and I’d been studying the catalyst ever since.
Now, I was ready.
I grabbed a pipette and carefully measured out the liquid into a test tube.
Then, I paused for a second, nerves fluttering in my stomach as I stared at the cauldron where all of my hard work was simmering away.
Then I steeled myself, took a deep breath, and poured it inside.
The potion hissed and spat, and for a second I thought that it was going to blow up again, but then it settled down.
I let out a relieved sigh and wiped my forehead.
For a second I thought—”
“Gotcha!”
The voice made me freeze in place.
That sounded like… I turned around and saw Emily standing there, grinning from ear to ear.
Amanda, you should see the look on your face!”
I crossed my arms over my chest and stared her down.
“This isn’t funny,” I said.
“I’ve got a potion brewing here and I don’t want any accidents.”
She rolled her eyes.
“Don’t be such a wuss,” she said.
“It’s not like you’re going to blow up the house or anything.”
I let out an exasperated groan and shook my head.
Why did I even bother?”
I grumbled as I turned back to the cauldron.
I had better things to do than listen to her dumb jokes.
Oh, come on,” she said.
“I’m just trying to lighten the mood.”
Just be quiet and let me finish this.”
She gave me one last smug look before leaning back against the wall and watching me work.

“Are you sure this is going to work?”
I paused for a second and looked at the potion that I’d been working on for so long.
If everything went according to plan, it would transform me into a powerful amazon warrior with bulging muscles and amazing strength.
If not… well, I didn’t even want to think about that.
But I shook my head and turned to Emily with a confident smile.
“Don’t worry,” I said.
“I’ve studied alchemy for years now.
This is going to work.”
She nodded and reached out to give me a reassuring pat on the back.
“I know it is,” she said.
“We’re doing this together.”
I nodded and turned back to the cauldron once again.
The potion was glowing slightly now, but it wasn’t ready yet.
There was still one more thing that I needed to do.
I took a deep breath and picked up the vial that contained the catalyst.
This was it.
The final step of my experiment.
I uncorked the vial and took another glance at my notes before pouring it inside the cauldron.
The potion hissed and spat once again as the catalyst mixed with everything else in there, but this time I didn’t flinch.
I watched the potion closely, the nerves in my stomach flaring up once again.
I knew this was going to be the make-or-break moment, and I didn’t want to mess it up.
What if I’d made a mistake?
What if the catalyst wasn’t supposed to be added yet?
What if—
I shook my head and pushed all those thoughts aside.
This was what I was meant to do.
This was my destiny, and there was no way I was going to let anything stand in my way.
I took a deep breath and picked up the wooden spoon that I’d been using to stir the potion.
I dipped it in one last time and started stirring the potion with a swift, steady rhythm.
The catalyst was already starting to react, I could tell.
The potion was glowing brighter now, and there were even sparks rising up from the surface of the cauldron.
It wouldn’t be long now.
As soon as I saw the potion change color, I’d know that everything was ready.
I turned to Emily and gave her a quick look.
“Get the amplification circuit ready,” I said.
“Make sure everything’s connected properly.”
She nodded and hurried over to the small table where she’d been working on it.
I watched her for a second, her blond hair shining in the dim light of my basement laboratory, and felt a rush of warmth inside me.
It was freezing down here, but somehow just having her here made everything feel a little bit better.
I turned back to the cauldron and carefully adjusted the settings on the burner to control the temperature of the potion.
I had to be careful here.
One wrong move and everything could go up in smoke.
But I’d been studying alchemy for years now, and I knew exactly what I was doing.
I watched the potion closely as I stirred it, looking for any sign that it was ready to be used.
And then, after what felt like an eternity but couldn’t have been more than a few minutes, I saw it:

Amanda knew it was now or never....!

I put down the wooden spoon and bent over the cauldron, taking a deep breath as I stared down at the bubbling liquid inside.
I’d been waiting for this moment for so long now, and I knew that there was no turning back.
This was my last chance to change my mind—to walk away and forget about everything I’d been working towards for so long.
But I wasn’t going to do that—I couldn’t do that—not now.
I’d come too far to turn back now, and I knew that this was what I was meant to do.
Emily put a hand on my shoulder and gave me a quick smile.
“Are you ready?”
she asked, holding up a small vial that she’d filled with the potion earlier.
I nodded and held out my hand, trying to ignore the way my fingers were shaking slightly.
She pressed the vial into my hand and closed my fingers around it gently.
“I believe in you,” she said softly.
“All our hard work is going to pay off.”
I took a deep breath and looked down at the vial in my hand.
The potion inside was glowing softly, the light flickering slightly as it moved around inside the glass.
It was time to drink it.
I could feel the nerves rising up inside me again, but I pushed them back down.
I knew exactly what I had to do.
I took a deep breath, unscrewed the cap of the vial, raised it to my lips…
And knocked the whole thing back in one gulp.
I shuddered as the potion slid down my throat, the taste even worse than I’d expected.
It was so bad that it almost made me gag, but I forced myself to keep it down.
I was doing this for a reason, after all.
And then, just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, the potion hit my stomach and exploded inside of me.
It felt like swallowing fire—I swear I could even feel the flames licking at the inside of my throat—and I let out a strangled cry, doubling over as pain lanced through my body.
“Oh Goddess, help me…”
Emily rushed over to my side, her eyes wide with concern.
“Amanda, are you okay?What’s happening?”
I couldn’t even answer her; the pain was so intense that everything else faded away.
I squeezed my eyes shut and gritted my teeth, trying to ride it out.
It felt like every cell in my body was being torn apart, like I was going to explode from the inside out.
And then—just when I thought I couldn’t take anymore—it all stopped.
The pain vanished as quickly as it had come, leaving me feeling… well, feeling incredible.
I took a deep breath and slowly straightened up, suddenly feeling like I could conquer the world.
Emily put a hand on my forehead and frowned.
“You’re burning up,” she said.
“Are you sure you’re okay?”
I nodded slowly, taking another deep breath to steady myself.
“I’m fine,” I said, my voice low and husky.
“I’ve never been better.”

Emily began to notice that my clothes began to tear at the seams, but my Nike Cortez sneakers grew along with my changes!
There wasn’t a dry eye in my basement lab.
I stood there and stared down at my hands, watching as they flexed and clenched into fists.
I’d done it.
I’d really done it—I’d become an amazon!
It was impossible to put into words how I was feeling right then.
I was surprised… I was excited… I was nervous.
But most of all, I was proud.
I’d worked so hard to get here—to make my dream a reality—and I’d never given up.
I’d faced so many challenges along the way and had come so close to failing.
But I’d never let it get me down.
I’d kept on pushing forward, no matter what.
And now it had paid off.
I’d finally reached my goal—I’d transformed myself into a real-life amazon warrior—and nothing could ever take that away from me.
“Is it… is it supposed to do that?”
Emily asked nervously from where she was standing behind me.
She reached out and put a hand on my shoulder and squeezed it tightly.
“I don’t know,” I said slowly.
“But I think it’s a good thing.”
Dr.Roberts gave a soft chuckle and shook his head as he watched us from where he was sitting on the other side of the lab.
He was my mentor and had been helping me with my experiment ever since I was a freshman in high school.
I wasn’t exactly the best student back then—I was more likely to be found asleep in class than actually paying attention—and my grades had been terrible as a result.
But he’d taken me under his wing and shown me that learning could be fun and exciting.
He’d taught me chemistry and helped me realize that I was smarter than I thought I was—and more capable than I ever could have imagined.
Most of all, he’d made me believe in myself and given me the courage to chase my dreams, no matter how crazy they might have seemed at the time.
Dr.Roberts had been there for me through everything—through all the late nights and early mornings, through all of the failed experiments and close calls.
And now he was going to be there to see me finally succeed.
“Are you sure you should be doing that?”
Emily asked gently as she watched me finish cutting away the remains of my shirt.
She reached out and put a hand on my shoulder and squeezed it tightly.
“It looks… painful.”
I gave her a quick smile and shook my head.
“It’s not,” I said reassuringly.
“It doesn’t hurt at all.”
But that wasn’t entirely true—it hadn’t hurt at first, but now…
Now it felt like every muscle in my body was on fire.
I shuddered as another wave of heat washed through me and ran my hands slowly up my arms to my shoulders.
My skin felt so tight that it was almost painful to move at this point, but that didn’t stop me from flexing my muscles over and over again.

I’d done it—I’d actually done it!
I’d made the potion, and it was working!
It wasn’t just another false alarm or near miss this time—it was really, truly happening!
I was going to be an amazon!
Even though Dr.Roberts was sitting on the other side of the lab, I could feel his eyes on me, watching me closely as I approached the final step in my experiment—adding the catalyst to complete the reaction.
It was the most dangerous part of the entire process, since the solution was going to get very hot, very quickly and then explode if I didn’t get everything just right.
And all things considered, it wasn’t exactly something you should be doing in your basement without proper safety equipment or supervision.
Dr.Roberts had been reminding me of that fact nonstop over the past few days—ever since he’d found out what I was doing, really—but that hadn’t stopped me from doing it anyway.
He knew that better than anyone else though, and he’d shown up to help me whether I wanted him there or not.
“I don’t think you should be doing that,” he said pointedly as I reached for the bottle of catalyst.
“You need to be very careful with it, Amanda.
It’s highly unstable.
All it would take is one wrong move and…”
He let his voice trail off as he watched me pull the bottle over to where I was working.
I didn’t need him to finish the sentence—I knew what he was going to say.
All it would take is one wrong move, and I could end up dead.
But I also knew that I wasn’t going to make a wrong move.
I couldn’t—not when I was this close to success.
I had to finish what I’d started, no matter what.
Dr.Roberts was quiet for a long moment as he watched me work.
Then he finally let out a heavy sigh before muttering something under his breath about stupid teenagers who just wouldn’t listen.
I couldn’t help but smile at that—he had a point, after all.
“Please be careful,” he said as he stood up and started walking over to me.
He moved slowly and carefully, making sure to give me plenty of space as he approached my workbench.
“You know what you need to do, right?”
I nodded quickly and placed my hand on the bottle of catalyst.
It felt so cold against my skin, almost as if the liquid inside was nothing more than water instead of the most dangerous substance on the planet.
I took a deep breath and steadied myself as I peeled the label back and started to add the last few drops of the solution to the potion in front of me.
Dr.Roberts let out a low whistle as the entire thing started to heat up almost immediately.
“Very good,” he said softly as he watched the reaction progress.
“Now be very careful.”
I nodded quickly as I closed my eyes and took a deep breath to steady myself.
I was so close now—so unbelievably close!
But I couldn’t let myself get too excited or distracted, not when there was still so much work left to be done.
