"Haddie," she called, "I... I think I need you to call Doc."

Her hands were pressed to her abdomen, red glistening over her clenched fists. White-faced, "Hurry..." slipped from her lips as she stared up at the dangling child, wide-eyed. Her hand slipped, smearing her kasaya robe in a fingered trail.

Teeth in a huge smile as the nun licked her finger, a bottle of ketchup materializing from thin air. "Gotcha!" she cried from her seat on the cargo bay, waving the bottle triumphantly.
