It was black at night when I was woken up by a tingling, and I knew Genta had come. "Hey beautiful." I smiled, even though I couldn't see her.
"If you want to get with me, in case you forgot, I'm married."
I laughed. "That never would of stopped the old Genta."
"Well, the new Genta has two kids, a husband, and a planet to take care of." She looked around. "Where are we?"
I groaned. "New Zealand."
"Never heard of it."
"Well, you've only lived in Denton, and never left it."
"I never needed to, when I knew that Frank would take hold of me when I was sixteen."
"I'm sorry. Did you bring my stuff?"
"Yeah, and some notes from Nellie, Nattie, and Cosmo, and a copy of Scarlet's birth certificate."
"Wow. I must mean a lot to them."
"You do. But, apparently, not to me. I have to get back to the castle, they just wanted me to bring you these. Love you."
"All the way to Transexual and back."
"That's a lot."
"I know." I giggled sleepily.
"I love you too. Bye."
"Bye." She walked over and kissed my forehead. I closed my eyes, and fell asleep to the tingling. I woke up to a knock on my door. "Hello?" It was still dark, what did they want?
"Hello! Miss Columbia Campbell?"
I managed to say "yes" while yawning.
"Well, in honor of the people of New Zealand, we would like to give you this person." A child in a maid's uniform stepped up. "We had a little problem working this out with the government on Transexual, so if anyone asks, she's your foster daughter. What would you like to name her?" I raised my eyebrows, and looked at her.
"Well, what's your name?" She couldn't be more than six.
"So-Sophie. It will be an honor to work for you."
"Thank you! Come on Sophie!" I all but yanked her in, and slammed the door. "You don't have to be nervous around me. I won't hurt you."
"I'm sorry. What do you need done?"
"So they just give children away now?"
"No. I am half Asexual. My mother was raped by an Earthling, and she chose to give me to the government. They did the required tests, and kept me. This was about five years ago, but then, only government people knew about you guys. So when Transexual took over Earth, I was released back into the hands of the smaller government. They sent me here. But, I am here to serve, not to talk. What do you need done?"
"I don't need anything done. Why did they just give you to me?"
"They said they wanted someone who could take care of me properly. In case I needed special care or something."
"Okay... Excuse me, I have to empty." I left with the breast pump that Genta brought me. I went into the bathroom, and set the toilet lid down, and started it up.
When I came out of the bathroom, and I gasped. She had straightened up the room, and was remaking the other bed. "Oh, I'm sorry, I just don't like the way the hotel maids do it."
"How did you clean so fast?"
"Oh, that's my tick. Cleaning."
"Oh, okay." Genta and Riff tried to explain the ticks that most in their galaxy had. Genta's was animals, but Riff didn't have one. Sophie's apparently was cleaning. Just weird things they're good with.
"Oh, I'm sorry, I was born on Earth."
"I'm a full blooded Earthling, who is close to the king and queen."
"Oh... Okay. Then why am I here with you?" I shrugged.
"I was a surrogate mother to a Tranny."
"That may be it."
We were startled by the tingling feeling, and the sound of bags clunking. "I think the real queen is here."
"Columbia!" Genta burst through, carrying a small luggage bag. "Oh, hello. Who are you?"
"They gave her to me. What did you need?"
"Riffy tried to kill me. The whole planet of Transexual thinks I'm dead."
A/N Don't you just love it when fics end like that? Backstories is going up Thurday! It's sweet. And now you know who Sophie is.
