Damian concluded. > "I've been reading that book I bought by that Aerodactyl breeder," she replied. "I didn't know whether or not it would be an Aerodactyl, but it seemed the most likely possibility." Back in the room shared by the girls, Spunky wakes up. As he stretches, he notices that Cuddles and Shields are both still sound asleep. He decides to go check on Sarah Jane. Alarmed, he realizes she is not in her cot. <<WAKE UP! WAKE UP!>> he barks as he leaps on Shields and Cuddles. <<Wha....?>> begins Cuddles sleepily. <<Go back to sleep and don't get Sarah-mama mad again....>> <<SHE'S GONE! SARAH-MAMA'S NOT IN HER BED!>> returns Spunky. Cuddles' eyes open wide, and Shields sits up suddenly. <<That's silly.... she wouldn't be up this early unless you woke her up again.>> scoffed Cuddles as she stood. <<Go see for yourself!>> snarled Spunky. Cuddles walks over to Sarah Jane's cot, only to discover her brother is right. <<Where is she?>> asks Cuddles with a quivering lower lip. She looks up at Shields like she is going to cry. The Mr. Mime closes his eyes for a moment, then points towards the kitchen. In a flash, the two Nidorans dash down the hallway. > A sudden "AWWKK" signaled the arrival of someone else to the > kitchen. > "NI NI DO! NI NI DO!" <<Sarah-mama! Sarah-mama!>> call Cuddles and Spunky as they dash into the kitchen, nearly running Damian down. "Mite?" asks Bulletproof. "Yeah.... we've got to remember to stay out of their way," mutters Damian. The two Nidorans stop short when they see the strange creature in their adopted mother's arms. Shields, who was close behind them, also stares at the newborn. "Meet your new little sister," says Sarah Jane with a smile. "AAAWWWKKK," squawked the Aerodactyl. "You're sure it's female?" asks Damian. "I.... just know somehow," replies Sarah Jane. "Ni do?" <<The egg?>> asks Cuddles. Sarah Jane nods. "Ran ran nido ran...." <<Why'd it hafta be another girl....>> mutters Spunky. > TBCÖ > > Jeff Hauser* > *Sig Sold Seperately -- (o)_(o) || Time Lady, sailrgal@swbell.net _(^*^)_ || sailrgal@hotmail.com, sailrgal@my-dejanews.com (__ __) || Visit the Mystic Manor Homepage /_/\_\ || http://members.tripod.com/~MysticManor
