The Doctors tale
When Rose entered her Grandfathers house with Bell on her shoulder, she and Bell were so wet that it looked as if they swam all the way back.
Rose found a set of towels, wrapped Bell gently with them and then laid her on the couch.
Is anyone in here?! she shouted.
At first there was no answer, but then she could hear silent footsteps approaching.
She saw Bells father emerging from the shadows, Dressed in a tidy white shirt.
He gave one look to Rose and then he saw Bell and his face became pale.
What happened? I was just about to come out and look for her!
Rose took a deep breath and said:
I mean Dr. X
I think you should sit down
Dr. X listened to the story quietly while stroking Bells beautiful white hair and sneaking looks at her every few moments.
And when she finished, she once again felt that strange feeling of de-ja-vou.
Dr. X seemed to have noticed it and said:
You must be confused
She looked at Dr. X and said:
I think that its time for the little explanation you promised me! I think I kinda deserve to know whats going on!
Dr. X looked far from surprised, he seemed to have anticipated this answer.
we should start at the beginning then!
Rose sat on a nearby couch and gave Dr. X her full attention.
Back in our world, many many years ago, there was a series of events connected to the Powerpuff girls whose story did not meet many ears
You must have heard some of it, it explains why recent events seem famelier to you!
When the girls were created by Professor utonium, I was dealing with experiments in Chemical X, the chemical that accidentally created them!
Upon hearing of it I became obsessed with proving that through professional science and not through accidents can real progress be achieved!
So what did you do?
I started getting in phase, Ive used myself as a guinea pig for many of the experiments! The results turned me into a monster! A freak! It effected my mind and brought me into the brink of insanity! And then! After so many failures and disappointments, my little Bell came to life! She was faster and stronger then the other girls! What a powerful leader could she be to their team!
Rose noticed a small spark in his eyes and said:
But the monsters twisted perception of my former thoughts and its sickening desire for power caused me to use my beloved creation whom I called daughter to fight the forces of justice and enforce my rising evil empire!
And how did it go?
At the start, wonderful! I have gathered ambitious allies and powerful henchman! The Powerpuff girls whom I saw as my greatest threat were at my palm! I was at the brink of victory when the most annoying thing happened!
Rose looked into his eyes and said:
The cursed heroes luck! It caused me to fail by matter of circumstances! Me and Bell continued to try and achieve our goals and even though we had superior strength, the tides of fate kept smiling at our enemies!
Have your Grandfather ever told you how come we came to help you?
Well, now you are going to know.
After years of failed attempts, I was approached by Him.
He suggested me to join him and your mother at their conquest of the underworld, claiming that there we would have a chance at victory!
We entered the underworld and learned it, my Bell and your mother were already adults when we finally attacked! My brave Bell fought so valiantly! Or so I was told!
Rose felt confused; didnt it happen in front of the doctors very eyes?
At that time, the monster became so strong it became a separate entity, I can barely remember the things I experienced under these situations! The rest comes mainly from what Ive heard afterwards:
Your mother have fell in love with your father and decided betray Him and me, but she was also afraid that your Grandfather, the grim reaper, is not trusting her, so she proved her loyalty!
Rose became curious, she never heard of that part of the story before.
Your mother have attacked our strongest champion, Bell who was adult and experienced! And she did it behind Bells back, Bell was badly harmed but still fought hard, until your mother thrown her into a pool of dark acid, killing her and sending her soul away! Hims forces were eventually defeated, He was sent away and I was healed from the monster at last! I was free to leave, your family knew it wasnt really me who harmed them!
Then why did you stay?
I had nothing to come back to, a world full of hatred for me was not a worthy place to live in! I would have ended up alone no matter what! So I remained in the underworld, and begged Grim to pull his strings for reuniting me with Bell! Eventually, your grandmother came with a deal, I will remain in the underworld forever and owe mine and Bells life to its rulers and in return Ill get her back, I agreed!
Rose finally realized! Indeed a life debt was being paid!
And she was reborn as a baby, this is why she is in such an age, yet as I feared, they failed to wipe all her memories clean so she still remembers her old commitment! Too bad that it happened especially here, there is no doubt of what you say Rose.
The girls in this world are stronger and hold a trustworthy and formidable ally but perhaps they have managed to beat sense into her.
We have so much to learn from this place
A thought came to Roses mind.
Are you sure that monster is completely gone? I think Ive heard of it too
The last thing I remember from being it is a pair of small red balls crossed by black stripes! Must be some kind of magic that belonged to Him
When was that
I dont know, long ago probably
Rose decided to talk about something more concerning.
I still dont understand!
Why are you doing this? Why didnt you say no? If Dick would have taken us you would have been free!
Dr. X gave her an angry look and said:
I love my daughter and I love freedom, but a man of science is worth nothing without his word! Even Bell knows that!
Rose was about to speak when they both heard coughing:
Dr. X turned his head to Bell and said:
Bell coughed again and curled at her fathers side.
I think I swallowed a bug!
Dr. X Rose and Bell laughed
But what neither Bell nor Rose knew was that Bell did swallow something, something that was pushed quickly into her mouth when she was about to attack and shout, about half an hour earlier.
A few kilometers away from there, in a small house in Townsvilles suburbs, Jhon Leaderkill and Blossom were sitting in front of a computer, smiling.
The screen shown the title:
Tracking device-voice signal
Jhon said while smiling:
And once again it was proven that the best interrogator is an innocent friend! Good job sis.!
A voice was heard from downstairs saying:
They got up, and as they were leaving the computer room, Blossom and said in a humorous tone:
Haha! Swallowed a bug! That one made me laugh! And boy do we have a story for lunch now! Ill race you there!
And a satisfied expression took place on her face as she flew to the lower floor with speed, leaving Jhon in her wake.
