Naninami, Lizbet and Taimi have finally left Gord’s hideout for the rest of the day. He goes into his lab to find Kirsten hidden in the refrigerator.
She peeks out from the fridge, sees Grem, and ducks back down.
Gord mutters: It’s always kids. Lousy kids…. sigh
Gord: Come on out, Kirsten. No one’s mad at you.
Gord: I’m sure. Are you still hungry after everything you ate?
Kirsten: No hungry.
Kirsten pokes her head out.
Gord: There you go. Now come on the rest of the way out.
Kirsten pulls herself out and walks out, wobbles a bit, but steadies.
Kirsten: Gord… Where am I?
Gord: You’re in my lair under Borderline City. This is my workshop.
Kirsten: Who am I?
Gord: You’re Kirsten. We’ll have to work to figure out any more than that.
Kirsten: Kirsten… You… Gord… Taimi… Na…mi…Lizbet… Bad men…Nega…eats every…thing…
Gord: Don’t worry, we took you away from the bad men. We’ll keep you safe from them.
Gord: The collar we gave you should keep it at bay as long as you always wear it.
Kirsten shrinks down to cat size and looks up and Gord with big gooey eyes.
Gord sits in the nearest chair and holds out his arms: Do you still dissolve everything when you’re in control like this?
Gord: Well, let’s see.
Gord leans down and carefully tries petting Kirsten. Her gelatin body is flimsy, but somewhat solid if he touches her gently. His skin tingles slightly, but it doesn’t hurt. Gord gently attempts to pick her up. His hands tingle as he lifts her up. She holds firm, like picking up a water balloon. She’s fairly light in this form, as if the extra weight is not there at all.
