Karyn looked at her watch. Where was Jon? He was supposed to meet her at the mall ten minutes ago, but he never showed up.
She saw Zoe entering the mall with a group of her friends, dressed in her usual pink ensemble. Jon's mom had made Karyn promise to help out with Zoe's compulsive spending, and since Jon didn't seem like he was ever going to arrive, she might as well check in.
"Hi, Karyn," Zoe said, when she spotted Jon's friend. The other girls, whom Karyn didn't really know, moved to the side.
"Uh. Hi, Zoe. What are you doing here? I thought you weren't going to come to the mall for a little while?"
"Relax. I'm just here to hange out," Zoe said. "Don't worry, I'm not going to buy anything. I am never going through one of those intervention things again. Besides, Mom told just about everyone I know, so I have help," she added, gesturing at her friends.
"Do you know where Jon is?" Neither one of them noticed as Zoe suddenly got more mature, going from 15 to eighteen, her clothes moving along with her. Similar, unremarked on events happened throughout the mall. Sara Gesup didn't notice anything as her 8 year old daughter went from trying on a modest, frilly young girls swimsuit to modeling a dashing one piece that displayed her firm c-cups to full effect.
"The last time I saw him he was at home. Listen, I've gotta run. Linda needs new clothes. Her little brother destroyed most of them doing the laundry."
"Where are you going first?"
"Victoria's Secret. We're starting from the bottom up." Then she walked away. As she went past a pair of 30 somethings in the food court, she didn't notice as they suddenly youthened, looking perhaps twenty, and aged only 16, despite being married and having a 6 year old daughter, who was in the Victoria's Secret getting some new lingerie to impress her boyfriend.
Karyn pulled out her cell phone and called Jon.
"Hello?" Jon asked, over the phone.
"Jon, how come you didn't come to the mall? We agreed to, so that we could grab something to eat at the food court."
"We never made plans to go to the mall, Karyn."
"So what did you want to talk about?" said Karyn, pulling her legs up under her on her bed. Fortunately, she hadn't been doing anything, or she might have missed Jon's call.
"You should come over to my house. I've got to tell you something."
"Okay. I'll be right there." She put away her cell phone and threw on her shoes. She had no idea Jon had used his new ability on her, as she yelled to her 27 year old mom (she had been 40) to let her know she was going to Jon's place.
