Two nights after Zaneta came home to discover her sugar plumb of a nephew pressured her nanite goddess daughter into deconstructing and cloning a woman for the sake of the little girl he has such an obvious crush on, she is now picking up William, a less ethically nightmarish clone, from the arctic base she left one of his bodies at. She figures that would be the one having the most boring time of it. One the other acquaintances she left a William with lives next to a water park, for crying out loud. 

"You ready to come home?"

"Finally. I get memories from the other clones but this is so boring."

"Sorry we couldn't be more entertaining," says the bearded, baseline scientist seeing him off.

Shrug.

And there's a sudden transition from artificially heated air in the middle of the arctic to tropical heat.

And now he's in some trepidation.

Nod.

"Would an apology help?"

"...with what?"

"...maybe?"

"Do you want me to get them?"

"I dunno. Maybe."

"Doesn't have to be right now."

Maurice walks past them, his colours umbral purple and a dusty blue, accompanied by large, melancholy butterflies. He's spent the last two days being consistently, loudly sad. Not something he's had much practice with, but it's the least he can do after what he did. 

"Hey, Aunty Zaneta. William."

William glares at him.

Maurice doesn't seem to notice, wandering off down the beach.

"He's had a rough time of it."

Permalink

"He dropped scorpions on me."

Permalink

"Yes, and that's not okay. Still doesn't change that he's going through some things."

Permalink

Shrug. "Then maybe he shouldn't have dropped scorpions on anyone."

Permalink

"How did that happen, by the way?"

Permalink

"I dunno, he came over to my cave to bother me with his girlfriend and I told them to go away and then there were scorpions."

Shrug. "They wanted me to help with her power but it was boring."
