Timeline: AU Ranger Blue
He Drives Me Crazy
Flynn McAllistair fingered the gold band on his wedding finger as he coughed briefly into the side of his arm. He had finally decided to wear his wedding ring to honor Sierra. Ziggy had seen the ring on Flynn's hand and had asked what the ring was for. Flynn didn't want to talk about his wife with the others but Ziggy had given him no choice in the matter. Now he was facing the rest of the Rangers while coughing up a storm.
"You're married?!" The other Rangers screeched in surprise. Flynn glanced at their mentor. She didn't seem too shocked about Flynn's secret marriage. In fact, Flynn bet that she had known it all along. That was the sort of thing she'd check before she'd choose him to be a ranger. Unfortunately, Sierra had died well before Flynn had become a ranger even though the Blue Ranger was sure that his lass would've supported him.
"Was." Doctor K said as she typed rapidly on the keyboard. "Though she's still alive and thinks you're dead." This part was muttered to herself as she kept on programming the newest bio suit.
"Doctor K is right." he rasped before coughing again. "Technically, my wife has been dead fer 5 years and 4 months." He didn't tell them that he thought Sierra might have survived whatever had happened to her. No, every memory of his lass was precious to him and he often kept them to himself. Sometimes, it was better for the team not to know.
Ziggy looked horrified that Flynn had been alone for so long. The fact of being alone so long wasn't new to Flynn...in fact he'd shed all of his tears for his wife long ago. "We need to get you back on the marriage market again, Flynn!" Ziggy finally blurted. "You'll need another wife."
"Ye are so daft, laddie!" Flynn yelled. Ziggy fell back in astonishment from Flynn's booming voice. Flynn was pissed and he had no problem loosing his Scottish temper on Ziggy. "I doona want another wife! She was me soul mate..." Now Flynn was sobbing. Seeing Flynn cry was astonishing for the rest of the team. Flynn was normally more calmer and laid back, so to actually see an outburst from the Blue Ranger was very rare.
"Ranger Blue, stop it. It's ridiculous to see a grown man crying." K reprimanded. All the Rangers stared at the scientist, for her complete callousness, who was still typing on the keyboard.
"So who's the suit for and do you need any help?" Flynn asked. K finally looked up from the Ranger-hated keyboard.
"It's, hopefully, for your wife if she agrees." she replied in her childish tone. Silence filled the Ranger Room. All the Rangers were stunned, including Dillon and Ziggy. Dillon had his trademark scowl on his face.
"Ye mean my dead wife? She's been dead for five years an' 4 months last time I checked, Lass. I even called Scotland Yard. They're still of the opinion that I killed her."
"Actually, she's very much alive and living above the clinic next to us." K finished and smiled at her work. "And no, I don't need help. I've finished it."
"What?!" Flynn was furious at the news that his wife was alive and that she didn't even care about him anymore. Maybe he should make her believe he'd fallen in love with another...
"She has no idea that you're even alive." K replied, breaking through the Blue Ranger's vengeful thoughts.
"Lass, what the hell do you mean?!" Flynn was still angry at his wife, who he'd practically watched grow up before his eyes, for abandoning him like she had.
"What I mean is she thinks you're the dead one." Doctor K shrugged. "Honestly, Ranger Blue, she wasn't kidding when there was moments you could be thickheaded." This made Dillon and Scott snicker in shared amusement.
"It's a weakness. Did she say she was glad to be rid of me?" Flynn raised and waved a hand to dismiss the thickheaded comment before adding a question.
"No, Ranger Blue. Quite the opposite…She misses you. She wishes you were there to help raise your sons." K looked puzzled. "Why would Sierra be glad to be rid of you?" The Blue Ranger now looked sheepishly at the younger genius.
"Maybe because I think she doesna love me anymore?" Flynn replied. Here Summer stepped up to Flynn and slapped his face." Summer, what the hell?!" Flynn asked. Summer was seething with anger at her best friend.
"Sierra and I were acquaintances through Chaz's sister, Flynn. If she just heard you talking like that, she'd haul off and beat the shit out of you for that. Be glad that I just slapped you once." Summer snapped.
"I'd like to see the day that a woman does kick our esteemed Blue Ranger's ass." Dillon remarked, still snickering. "What's more, I'd enjoy the sight, Blue Boy."
"Call me that one more time and I swear on Thor's holy Hammer, I will kick your cyber-ass." Flynn snapped.
"Thor," The Black Ranger sneered in a seemingly authentic and undecipherable Scottish accent, "will be cleaning up your 'mortal' ass on aisle one by the time I have gotten through with mutilating you." The other Rangers watched as the Blue and Black Rangers stared at each other.
"Did you just speak Scottish Gaelic?" Flynn asked in awe and slight skepticism.
"Yeah… my mother was Scottish, why?" Dillon asked, puzzled himself. He watched the Blue Ranger pace the floor. "Flynn?"
"There are only two women I know that can actually speak the ancient language of the Celts, which is ancient Gaelic….and you'd have to be related to either of them, which is ironic since the first happens to be my wife. The other is dead, has been, Och…since my wife was ten." The Scottish Ranger said softly.
"Aileen McKenna?" He asked.
"That's the name of my mother in law. How…" He replied, looking astonished.
"Aileen is my mother too. The scientists at Alphabet Soup took her DNA illegally and used it to create me and my sister." Dillon announced, looking like he was a lost little boy.
"Holy shit, you're Aidan!" Flynn muttered.
"Aidan?" Dillon asked in incredulity. The name brought back flashbacks of a little girl that Dillon felt overwhelmingly protective of.
A redheaded woman came in with a little girl. The little girl was holding onto her mother's peach colored skirt. "Aidan, Catriona? I've brought Sierra to play with you." The boy walked into Sierra's bubble and the younger girl just hid behind her skirts.
"Ma'am, he'll never be able to understand the connection he shares with your daughter." A scientist warned. "For that matter, he's never spoken a word since he met you the first time."
"You made the twins like that. If I had been able to raise Aidan and Catriona from their birth, they no doubt would be able to understand the connection."
"Sissy." Aidan's voice came out loud and clear as he enveloped his sister in his skinny arms.
"I think it's best for you to leave now and never come back." The scientist calmly announced as Aidan led Sierra over to the blocks he'd been building with earlier. Aileen nodded, scooped up Sierra and started to leave.
"Sissy!" Both Aidan and Catriona cried out as Aileen left with the little sister they had come to love so much. Aidan tried to go with Aileen, but a scientist blocked his way.
"Kitty!" Sierra was too young to understand that they would never see her older siblings ever again. She was three, after all. "Teddy!" She screamed her nickname for Aidan until they were out the door.
"Sis…." Aidan sobbed softly.
"Sis." Dillon cried out softly. The Blue Ranger was right by his side. "Sierra's my sister…then that makes you my brother-in-law?" Flynn nodded at the Black Ranger.
"That's right. She's all grown up now." Doctor K replied. "She's married and has a couple of sons with Flynn."
"Damn, that was cathartic." The Black Ranger muttered. He briefly remembered Sierra bending over him when he was in prison. He smirked. Sierra was definitely Flynn's type if her argument with one of Colonel Truman's aides was to believed.
Sierra McAllistair watched her 5 year old twin boys as they played at the park. Often, she felt like someone was watching over her, keeping her and the boys safe. Now at 5 years old, the twins were exact carbon copies of their father, Flynn McAllistair and that made Sierra miss her dearly departed husband even more.
"Momma!" The cry of the oldest twin, Iain Scott McAllistair, made her look up from the book she was reading. "Look at how high I'm going!" Sierra laughed as her baby boy made a face that was reminiscent of his father.
"Be careful, Iain." she admonished lovingly to Iain. Leith was spinning on the merry-go-round using his small stomach and chubby legs to scoot the heavy metal toy around. Sierra looked at the book again but she wasn't really reading - in actuality, she was thinking of what the twins had inherited from Flynn other than his rugged good looks.
Leith had shown his teachers at his elementary school the early hallmarks of a mechanic while Iain loved to read anything he could get his hands on. Both had Flynn's sweet, intelligent nature…and Iain had the superhero complex that had annoyed Sierra as a child, but now found quite endearing.
Iain spoke with his father's natural Scottish accent, while Leith had picked up her Irish lilt. Suddenly, Sierra's maternal instinct went off. A grinder was trying to drag away Leith and she ran for her child but tripped over a tree root.
"Let 'im go!" Iain said as he kicked the Grinder's metal leg. "That's me brother!" An ominous wind gust blew as one of the Power Rangers came into the clearing.
Sierra could barely make out the Ranger's color amid all the dust Iain was making. "Hey, lad…ye are in me way." The Blue Ranger informed, looking at Iain. "Could ye move over by yer ma while I take care of this grinder?"
Iain lost no time doing what the Blue Ranger asked of him and soon the Grinder was defeated. Leith was very quiet as soon as the Blue Ranger picked him up which made Sierra suspicious. Leith never was quiet for anyone! The only person he listened to was her.
"Momma…that's Da!" Iain insisted. Sierra shook her head. It couldn't be…her husband was dead. He was in the ground in Corinth's cemetery, of that she was sure!
"Da!" Leith started in with chanting.
"Flynn, we got to get back to the garage." A familiar guy in red said as he came up to the Blue Ranger. Sierra recognized him as Lieutenant Scott Truman of what used to be the United States Air Force, but some time before Venjix's first attack, had morphed into Corinth's Air Support team.
"Aye. Lad… ye canna come with me." At this, the ranger set him down and he ran to Sierra.
"Flynn?" Sierra asked, now hearing the Blue Ranger's heavy Scottish accent. "It's impossible. Alex said you died fleeing to Corinth." She had shed so many tears for him, it wasn't even funny. Alex lied to her!
"Power Down!" Flynn said. "Hello, lass. So it really is true that ye married Alex?" Sierra's jaw fell open as she made a noise to protest. For a few minutes there was silence while Sierra looked at her husband from head to toe. While he had been lean as a teenager back in the day, Flynn had put on muscle in the right areas now. 'Damn it, what did Flynn do to his hair? And why does his short hair and added muscle make him more attractive to me?' she thought. It had barely passed his chin when she last left him.
"You bloody bastard! I would never consider marrying your would - be killer. I've managed to break away from him and put myself through medical school, thinking you were dead!" She hit Flynn's broadened chest. "I was so alone…I was pregnant with the twins and thinking you were dead…" she sobbed into his chest.
"Shh, lass…ye have me again now. I willna leave ye." Flynn soothed. "We make pretty bairns, doona we?" Sierra looked at their boys and then nodded in agreement.
"Flynn…Quit flirting and let's go." Dillon was now speaking to Flynn. Dillon was impatient to get back to The Garage so he could eat.
"Shut it Dillon. Guys…this is me wife." Ziggy stared at the Blue Ranger as did the rest of the team. Well, Summer just stared at Sierra, who frowned at her before turning her gaze back to her husband.
"Your wife? But K said you…" Scott trailed. "Wait a minute! Sierra O'Brien?"
"Actually, it's Dr. Sierra McAllistair." she corrected.
"Sorry, I forgot that you changed your name after you married Flynn. Did you ever recover from the bout of amnesia that I last saw you having?" Scott asked. He hoped this wouldn't affect his team.
"Yes I did, Scott. I got my PhD in General Medicine with a specialty in OB/GYN and now own a clinic right next door to you guys. I live above the clinic with my boys." Sierra looked at her boys. They continued to play as if the Grinders hadn't interrupted.
"An' she's comin' with us." Flynn folded his arms as he declared this. Sierra slapped her forehead, knowing that her husband was overstepping his boundaries with Scott.
"No problem." Scott replied to Flynn. "She and I have a lot of catching up to do." Sierra rolled her eyes as she picked up her purse and motioned for the twins to follow her.
"Are you sick?" she asked Flynn.
"Nay, Lass. It's just a cold." Sierra rolled her eyes and punched Flynn's arm. The rangers stared at the couple as Sierra seemed angry with the Blue Ranger. "Ow, what the hell was that for!"
"My office, NOW." the younger doctor growled at her husband. "You're getting a damned checkup before you can return to Rangering. I mean it, Flynn Iain Leith McAllistair!"
Sierra's threats weren't idle as Flynn found out a little later from Dr. K. So, to appease his wife, the Blue Ranger let her check him over. Besides, it allowed him to ogle her as much as he wanted. "You have a bronchial infection, Flynn. At least we caught it in the nick of time…Are you ogling me?" she asked as she wrote in the chart that was to be his.
"It's me right, Lass." Flynn reminded in an almost purr-like voice, making his Scottish accent deeper. "Ye wouldna deny me right as yer husband…or did that change?"
"Damn it, Flynn McAllistair! Here I am trying to examine you and you're just thinking of how fast you can get my clothes off!" Amusement shone on her features. Again, Flynn's sparkling blue eyes roved over her slender form, only to rest on her cleavage. Flynn fell in love with his wife all over again in that moment.
"Aye, methinks ye've forgotten what it's like to be a wife after all this time." Flynn said tenderly. "Forgotten what it's like when a laddie and a lassie are together, sharing a bed." Sierra rolled her eyes at her husband.
"I have not." Sierra protested, her chest heaving with righteous fury.
"Nay, ye have forgotten, leannan. Methinks that I shall have to retrain ye to remember such." Sierra's jaw dropped.
"Of all the cheek, Flynn, that is the worst insult!" Sierra snapped at her husband. "I remember how good we were in bed because that's all I had these years while we were apart."
"I'm sorry Lass…" He murmured, feeling like he may have hit on one of his wife's nerves.
"Thanks…but you need complete and total bed rest before I consider coming back to bed, is that clear?" Sierra looked up at her husband and watched as he nodded. "Drink plenty of fluids. Make sure to expectorate all the gunk…and you should be fine in a couple of weeks. By the way, no Rangering, either."
"Lass, they can't form the megazord without me!"
"Flynn, no rangering. As Ranger Pink, I can take your place if need be." She murmured. "Do I make myself clear?"
"Yes, Doctor…hey, wait… you accepted Dr. K's request?"
"That I did. Ranger Pink is supposed to function with one other cartridge besides her own and it's easier if I take the other Ranger's places when they're sick."
"Here, Lass." Flynn surrendered his cartridge to his wife. "Ye're the only one I trust to use it."
"Thanks, Flynn." She slipped it into her coat pocket.
Two weeks later, there was a knock at her door. Sierra wiped her wet hands on a dishcloth before going to open it. It was Dillon. "Can I talk to you?" He asked.
"Sure, as long as you can promise that you won't hurt me." She knew of Dillon's hybrid status, had been one of the three military doctors that had evaluated him even though the hybrid didn't know it.
"I promise…I just want to talk." The black Ranger held up his empty hands as reassurance. Sierra tried not to laugh as she gestured for the Black Ranger to come in. "Aileen McKenna was my biological mother…I remembered suddenly that she had a little girl with her when she came to Alphabet Soup to confront them with what they'd done."
"Colonel Truman told me you remember very little." At this, the black ranger nodded as he sat down in a recliner.
"But I remember Aileen telling me she was my mom and that I had a younger sister. I can't remember her name though. She looked like you, though and Aileen called me by an Irish name."
"Aidan. She wanted to give that name to her eldest son." Sierra supplied.
"I want to look for my youngest sister… that way, if my twin is dead…but I have no idea where to start or even an inkling of her last name." Sierra gave Dillon a weak half smile.
"You're talking to her, Dillon." she said.
"You're my sister…the youngest? The one that stepped on the scientist's foot when she heard how badly we were treated?" Dillon asked.
"Yes. Even though you were half machine….I already loved you and wanted you to come home with us." The Black Ranger got up and crossed over to where Sierra was standing. He enveloped the young doctor into his embrace.
"I love you, sis." he murmured as he hugged her.
"Love you too Dillon." she replied as she frowned. The scientist said that Aidan…No, Dillon wouldn't understand the familial bonds that he shared with Aileen and Sierra. 'Bullshit.' Sierra thought as Dillon pulled away from her.
"Well, I have to go now. Do you want me to send my brother-in-law over?" he asked.
"Yeah and if he asks why, tell him he'd better get his ass over here or else. He'll know what that means." Dillon laughed.
"Aye, Aye…Captain." he teased. She laughed at him and watched him leave. Perhaps Flynn and she could resume their married life. She remembered that her husband had wanted a large family. She hoped that he still wanted that, because she did as well.
Flynn climbed up the stairs to his wife's apartment. He had a lot to make up for…and speaking of making up, Flynn had noticed that his wife was a little too thin for his taste so he planned to remedy that by getting her pregnant and cooking for her.
Over the years they were apart thanks to Alex, he had learned to become a passable, if not excellent, cook. He wanted to watch as her belly grew large with his child, something that Alex had deprived him of when Sierra was pregnant with their twins.
When he got up there, the door was open and Sierra was already leaning against the doorjamb, wearing jeans, a rose silk shirt and one hand was in her pocket. "Hey there, stranger." she teased. Flynn had to smile. It looked like he wasn't the only one with seduction on his mind. "Did Dr. K say it was alright?"
"Well what she normally does is ta leave us ta our own devices until there is an attack." Flynn said, taking her into his arms. "Where are the twins?"
"They…" she said as she put her arms around Flynn's neck. "Are with Uncle Dillon. You and I have the apartment to ourselves." She murmured seductively. For a few minutes, Flynn made out with Sierra after he gently backed her to the wall. It was hard to restrain himself especially when he hadn't brought condoms.
"Lass…do ye want more children? I mean, if the twins are enough…I'll ken but I doona have any protection with me." he asked once their session of making out was over.
"Yes… now just shut up and kiss me." she ordered.
"Och…Ye've made me so happy, Lass." Flynn whispered in her ear before he shut the door.
After that, Sierra became a permanent fixture in the Rangers' lives, especially in Dillon's life. Adjusting to the life of a Ranger was no trouble for her at all. She got along well with Dr. K and Summer had become her best friend. Dillon and Ziggy were always happy to babysit the twins while Flynn and Sierra needed alone time. Doctor K seemed to be sick and working on another one of her many projects.
"Ranger Blue….would you mind getting your wife here?" Doctor K asked the Scottish Ranger.
"Ye doona need to worry about that, Doc…she's already here." Flynn pointed to his wife who was writing out a medical report on a pad of paper while she daintily sipped from a cup of tea..
"Sierra…are you taking new patients?" Doctor K asked. While Sierra wrote…she was dead silent, which aggravated the young genius. After she wrote the final word, she looked up.
"Yes, I am…why?" Sierra replied.
"I need a check up." This startled Flynn's wife from what the petite genius knew about her. "And I need a doctor I can trust."
"Wow, Doctor K…are you sure?" Ziggy asked.
"Shut up Zig." Sierra said tersely. "This is between me and K." Doctor K blinked. She didn't know Sierra could be so terse, especially to Ranger Green.
"Sure. When do you need the checkup?" she asked nonchalantly.
"Soon." K replied, hoping Sierra could help her. She didn't have much faith in doctors, because Alphabet Soup hired military doctors who didn't give a shit about their patients beyond treating them. Sierra had proved she was different by treating the other Rangers when they were sick and when they weren't, the gentle doctor continued her behavior after they were well. Most often, it was either Ranger Green or Ranger Red that got sick and while K wasn't jealous when Sierra treated Ranger Green, whenever Sierra was alone with Ranger Red really made her hair curl.
"How about now?" Sierra suggested, putting her pad of paper down and getting up. "I need a break from all that writing." Doctor K smiled. She could trust Sierra, definitely. Not only was she married to Ranger Blue, but she had no interest in Ranger Red other than being a friend.
"Fine." Doctor K replied as she followed Sierra into the Ranger Room.
"Doctor K…whenever I treat Scott, why do you glare at me?" Sierra asked after the doors shut behind them. "I just need to know."
"I don't know what it's called that I'm experiencing…" she tried to explain to Sierra. "Like I told you, Alphabet Soup raised me to be without emotions."
"What I think you're experiencing every time I treat Ranger Red is jealousy, K. It's normal…but if you get into the stage where you really want to hurt me, you will need a therapist and psychologist to treat you." K smiled.
"The only things keeping me from hurting you are that you are Ranger Blue's wife and you're Ranger Red's friend, Sierra . Not to mention that you are also Ranger Black's younger sister." Sierra laughed as she nodded. She understood K very well.
"Well, you're healthy."
"Damn You!" The petite genius said. "I'm throwing up and you say I'm healthy!" Sierra shook her head as she continued to examine Doctor K.
"One more thing. I need you to pee in a cup." Sierra said, handing the doctor a sterile cup.
"Why this?" K looked upset. Sierra couldn't really blame her. Especially if the test results confirmed Sierra's suspicion that the good doctor was pregnant.
"It's to help me diagnose you, K." Sierra explained.
Sierra hoped that she was pregnant again. She'd already told K about her pregnancy and advised her to tell Scott as soon as possible. The twins were with their daddy…spending quality time together in order to bond as Flynn should have done when they were babies but hadn't a chance to, thanks to Alex. From what she saw, Flynn was a wonderful father.
He never yelled at the twins, he just sat them down and told them that they were going to stand in the corner for 5 minutes, then when the time was up, they could tell him what they thought that they did to merit that punishment. Dillon was beginning to take a cue from Flynn in dealing with his nephews although there was sarcastic banter between the two men after the twins were standing in the corner.
There was a knock at the door and then the door opened. "Lass?" She heard her husband's deep Scottish accent as he came in. "Are you okay? Dillon said ye weren't feeling all too well, that ye were a little too pale." Sierra snorted as she waited for the pregnancy test's results. Dillon always thought she looked too pale. He also thought she could stand to gain more weight too, but Sierra had told him to go spar with Ziggy.
"I'm fine, Flynn." She yelled. Looking down at the test screen, she saw a negative sign. She came out. "Mind explaining these to me?" she asked as she pulled out his medicine from the cabinet.
"It's nothing, lass." He said.
"Nothing? Flynn, have you forgotten that I am a General Practitioner? I prescribe these every time for Bi-polar depression." she asked.
Flynn sighed and rubbed his temple with his left hand. "After ye left…and didna come back…I fell into a deep depression. Me Da was afraid that I had lost it after ye left, so he arranged for me to see a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist said that what ye'd triggered wi' yer leaving was the Bi-Polar disorder. It jest took yer leaving as an okay to…wreak havoc on me life. I think that's why I was dismissed from all those jobs." he explained. "Not to mention me hero complex." That was muttered.
"Flynn, I intended to come back after I was finished, but Alex insisted on me marrying him. It didn't matter if I said no, he threatened to send me back to the Galway Bay school."
"That bloody bastard…If I'd known, I would have killed him for that. Yer Da told me that the beatings nearly killed ye." Flynn put his arms around her.
"You still talk to him?" She asked.
"Och, on occasion, though I've never forgotten what he put ye through at the wedding ceremony." Flynn replied. "Which is why I have let him believe ye are dead." At this, Sierra's jaw dropped.
"Holy shit, Flynn! What kind of story did you give him?"
"I told him that I watched the Grinders kill ye and then watched as they chopped ye up." Sierra snorted. That was the biggest lie that she had ever heard from her husband.
"Where in the hell does he live? I'd forgiven him a long time ago." Flynn gave her the address of his restaurant. "And you, my dear husband, aren't off the hook yet for this little stunt."
Sierra looked up at the restaurant's name. Her father, in his grief over her supposed death, had named the restaurant after her. She went in.
"Hello…I'd like to visit Mr. O'Brien." she said to the waiter.
"Oh, I'm sorry but Mr. O'Brien isn't seeing anyone as of right now." Sierra stared at the waiter with the signature O'Brien family glare.
"Oh really? Well, I am a private investigator he hired to find out the details of his daughter's death. How do you think it'll look on your resume to your prospective employers that he fired you because you prevented his closure to his daughter's murder?"
"That's blackmail, little lady." the waiter said as he gulped.
"That's business, my man. I want to see him right now. Do it or I will see to it personally that he fires you." Sierra replied. Of course, she had no plans to but she would if he didn't follow her orders.
The waiter swiftly got her father. "What in the hell do I need a private investigator for? I just want to be alone in my grief….damn it, Alvin!" Sierra laughed. Was her father in for a nasty shock… "Sierra? You….Flynn told me you were dead!" her father said.
"Da, do you honestly believe that Flynn would jest sit quietly and watch while the Grinders killed and dismembered me?" she asked as she hugged him.
"No….but why in the hell would he come up with such an outlandish story anyways?" Sierra laughed at her father's response. That was the biggest lie that Flynn had ever told his father in law…it even topped the lie about who had gotten into the ice cream after school.
"He wanted to get even with you about our wedding ceremony." she said, laughing.
"That bloody Scottish pea-brain!" Sierra was still laughing. "Well, where have you been for the last five years?" Her father asked sharply.
"I spent two years as Alex's captive while putting myself through medical school and I now have a practice of my own." her father was furious at the idea of Alex keeping her captive. "And that 'bloody Scottish Pea-brain' is the father of your grandchildren. You have two grandsons already." Her father looked at her.
"How old are my grandsons?" he asked.
"Twins?" Her father looked genuinely shocked to hear that. "I'm not surprised, however. Your mother had an identical twin. I think she's still living, by the way."
"Da, did you know that Ma had children before me created?" Her father got a troubled look.
"I knew. It tore her up inside to see how they were treated by Alphabet Soup. Especially Catriona…who was blind from birth." Her father revealed as he looked into the distance. "Why do you ask?"
"I found my older brother…he doesn't remember a thing and he's a hybrid." Sympathy and love filled her father's face. "He's looking for my sister." Steven looked away, remembering the sweet boy he'd held when he had last visited Alphabet Soup headquarters.
"Even though that boy wasn't of my own blood…I loved your brother like I would my own son. I'd like to visit him." He said turning to her.
"I'll see what I can do." Heart heavily pounding in her chest, Sierra returned to the Garage...where she had a private lecture from Dr. K to listen to.
Author's note: Sorry to leave this at a cliffhanger but I have never really written long chapters and am more suited to bouncing ideas off of people's heads. Technically, that means...I don't really do details all too well. Anyhow, Please Read and Review! Flames will be used to fuel Flynn's hummer, okay?
