She looked fairly human...It clicked in my head then, what her mother had said. This was Abby, their daughter and she was human. I adjusted my glasses farther up the bridge of my nose.
“Uh, yeah. I do.” She chuckled and stuck out her hand.
“Hello, my name is Abby. You are Jun, Susan and Bruce’s son, right?” Murmuring started around the hall and I shot my head up to look around the hall and they all shivered when my gaze touched their skin. Man, there were a lot of creatures here.
“Um, yeah. How do you know my parent’s names?” She grabbed my arm and pulled me down the hall with a smile.
“How could I not? Your parents used to live here! In fact, your Dad used to be our team Captain of our basketball team and brought us to Provincials once. It was amazing! We even won! We aren’t that good anymore though.” She has taken me to a display case and I froze. I stood staring at a picture of my Dad from high school with a giant grin on his face standing next to his team mates. What? Dad had never said anything... “I was kind of hoping that maybe you would be some kind of prodigy like you father but...you certainly don’t look it.” She gave me a one-over and I flushed in embarrassment.
“I um, got more of my Mom in me then my Dad.” Her eyes smiled as she stared at me.
“I can see that. Ginger too huh?” I smiled slightly.
“Yeah. She is. She was also in the Navy so I have a natural knack with water but...well, there certainly isn’t any water around here.” She laughed and grabbed my arm again.
