Chapter 3 - To Denmark: from 2B
Drakken interrupted the discussion, “I've studied Shego's condition more than anyone--”
“A condition, he calls it,” Shego muttered.
He glared at her, “And I think I could devise a damper harness that would effectively neutralize the comet effects while she wore it.”
“Nothing personal, Doc, but some of your inventions don't exactly work as well as promised.”
“I'll have Wade go over my figures and double check everything.
Shego took a deep breath, then let it out slowly, “Amy?”
“I don't know,” the heavy-set geneticist answered. “Karen?”
“I'll monitor the results. If it looks good I'll let you know.”
“How soon will you be able to tell?” Amy demanded. “My university wants me moving on this.”
“If it works she'll be normal-- OW! You didn't have to hit me!”
“Normal?!” Shego muttered.
“As close to normal as you're likely to see. Anyway,” he continued, turning back to Amy. “Her base temperature will be in the normal range by the end of the month. The psychological abnormalities you'll just have to live with.”
“Well, what do you think?” Kim demanded a few weeks later, before purchasing the tickets to Denmark.
“It's uncomfortable as hell, staying clean is going to be impossible, and I miss the plasma. How do you think I feel?”
“You want to change your mind? That's a long time in the harness.”
“I can do it. I'm a little disappointed though. I thought I'd lose all the green.”
“Drakken said the comet effected you down to the DNA level, you should have expected that when the girls inherited a touch of green.”
“Does the world need another green freak?”
“You know, in the house I live in I'm sort of a freak for not having any green.”
Scientists in Denmark insisted on blood samples from the girls, Kim, and Shego. They promised anonymity when the reports were published, but Kim and Shego both knew the secret would likely come out -- enough people already knew or suspected the truth. And then there were those who imagined Shego was a man in drag… At least in a scientific journal there was some chance it would seem too dull to seize the public's lack of imagination.
DNA analysis of the blood samples convinced even the skeptics who had not believed Amy's claims.
The procedure itself seemed only vaguely familiar to Kim. She had been so out of her mind with grief during the earlier experience that it had all taken on a surreal air in her mind. Now, with everyone around her offering her support and Shego taking on the major responsibility Kim could relax and not be overly concerned.
Two fertilized eggs were implanted. “What now?” Shego demanded of Amy and the doctors.
“Now we wait. You stay in bed for two days taking it easy, then light touring around Copenhagen with your family; nothing more strenuous than seeing the little mermaid statue. In two weeks you're back for a pregnancy test.”
