—heard. I don’t want to tell him.
Yeh can’t hide over 1,000 dead fish, Giz, they’ll start tah smell.
DC, Gizmo, and DD all share a strong bond. Some would even compare them to siblings.
Gizmo is the eldest, acting somewhat like a guardian to the other two. On many occasions, Gizmo is the voice of reason.
DC is the ‘all work and no play’ sibling. He seems like the second eldest, though he’s the youngest of the three. After being burdened with more responsibility than any Darktor at such an early age, DC’s maturity accelerated further than DD’s.
You haven’t met them yet, but Giz and I have.
Deglianforiegian’s are creatures that burrow underground. They’re highly sensitive to vibrations. If they feel something walking above their hives, they burst from the ground and tear their prey apart— they eat raw flesh. One-hundred percent carnivores. Lily and I encountered them once in a field on Earth.
I’ve also found that Deglianforiegian’s mate for life, and tend to keep with their hives; however, a ROGUE Deglianforiegian breaks away from its hive. They’ll conceal themselves in any closed space they can find. Hollowed trees, caves, closets, walls—
—but I think our little mischief maker is hopping around in our biospheres.
So how do yeh know that this lil’ fuck is crawlin’ ‘round in here?
We may or may not have a rogue Degalianforiegian running around on our ships.
What the bloody hell is a Deglianforiegian?
Board games and films, for all of our big family nights we have scheduled.
And about hunting, in a few months time, I really don’t think any of us will be morally capable of just running around, killing people for our own benefit, so we might have to look into taking our nutrients from animals instead.
We need to make sure all our harnesses are working, because a fall could be fatal at this point. Ummm, let’s seeeee..
SUNBLOCK! Since we’re all travelling together, we should protect our sensitive skin… mmm.. do our new glasses have shaded lenses?
They do, actually! DC and I had a conversation about how the sun hurts our eyes, especially right after an exorcism. The glasses are guaranteed to keep the sun from damaging your eyes.
Are we all set?
I think that’s just about it..
Gizmo, write all this down!
First things first, that’s our grocery list.
We needs eggs, milk with no lactose, Swiss cheese, American Cheese, cream cheese, Flinstone’s vitamins, Blue’s Clues gummies, a water filter, ice trays, new towels, pillows, a stock of chocolate, wafer sticks, jelly rolls, orange juice, grape juice, apple juice, cranberry juice, diapers, crisps, pepper, bananas, sprinkles, flour, baking soda, olive oil, vegetable oil, coconut oil, baby powder, sesame seeds, avocados, tomatoes, spinach, ice cream, popsicles, and yams.
We also need tah install tethered doors that link not just Gizmo an’ DD’s TARDIS, but mine as well, now that she’s grown. An’ we all need tah pitch in an’ fix our light bulbs, AN’— AN’ Giz, yer goin’ tah need some special glasses that will protect yer eyes. I’ve just given DD his.
ALSO, we’ve got tah take turns huntin’ so we can keep our flasks full an’ bodies healthy. No smokin’ or swearin’ ‘round the children. Control yer temper. Smile like yeh mean it.
Giz, what am I missin’?
“I’m doing better. Feeling brighter, at least. Not as mopey.”He smiled, shifting to grab DC’s hands and pulling him close, kissing the fingers. “I’m glad to see you…”
He smiled warmly, then pulled the other into a strong embrace.
“I’m glad tah see yeh, too,” he whispered, nuzzling into his jaw a little before pecking his lips.
“I shouldn’t have lost my temper. And I know you just had whats best for the family at heart.” He shifted from foot to foot and mimicked his movements of arm rubbing.
“I’ll try tah make m’good intentions a bit more clear next time,” he let his hand drop to his side.
“Are yeh doin’ okay?”
