Mimic blinked and hopped onto his heels. "Maria fibbing...Maria in pain." He helped pull her up. "What wrong with Maria?" Maria shook her head despairingly. "This is ATR island, isn't it? ...Oooh...Mimic, I've gone into labor. I might as well sit down and wait to die." "Labor? Why Maria in pain? Mimic think is good for Maria find honest line of work..." "Not *that* kind of labor..." Maria grimaced. "I mean, I'm having the baby!" "Oh..." Mimic turned a little pale. "Um...Mimic not think unstable ATR island good place to give birth." Maria slowly turned her eyes onto him and sweatdropped. "I don't have much choice in thisss..." Mimic looked around. Not too far away, there was a grove of trees. He hefted up Maria and headed towards it. "Mimic think should get out of sight until figure out what do." With the way the island was swaying, flying off somehow would be very dangerous...Mimic wasn't even sure if he could make it by himself in the turbulence the island was creating. Suddenly Maria clutched his arm *hard*. He winced. At least it didn't cause as much damage as her nails to his back did when he-- Maria gave a small cry. Mimic's mind snapped back to the present, and he hurried again. Teleportation didn't seem like a good idea, it'd probably be too stressful for her and baby at the moment. Reaching the trees, Maria settled herself against a large tree in tears. Mimic sweatdropped, not sure what to do. He looked behind them, hearing a muffled explosion from far below. "Mimic hope hold out..." TBC?
