Quantum Adrenaline - Part 1 by hippo2 Quantum Adrenaline - Part 1 by hippo2
Martha was in a bad mood. Carnival had been over for several days and she hadn’t found the courage yet to talk to Sami again. At the same time, she saw Amelia and David spending every free minute together. Maybe Anne-Laure was right and the decision between Sami and David had already been made for her? During a break, she ran into Amelia in the staff area. She had just changed into her casual clothes. Martha decided to ask her friend straight from the heart. “Hello Amelia. How are you doing?”

“Very good. David will be here in a few minutes.” Amelia’s eyes were gleaming.

“You spend a lot of time with him lately.” Martha took a deep breath. “Are you... an item now?”

Amelia gave her a broad smile, showing her prominent front teeth. “I’d say so. We’ll spend the evening at his flat, watching a movie.”

“Oh. That’s... nice. And since when...” Martha felt disappointed.

“If you want, I’ll tell you the whole story:” Amelia began her tale. “It started when you went to America. David wanted to thank me for using my wish to turn him back into a man. And since you weren’t around, we went out together. We met a few more times while you were on vacation. I felt my feelings for David grow, and I think he had feelings for me as well back then. Best you ask him yourself.”

“Er... better not. That’s a bad idea.” Martha rejected.

Amelia shrugged her shoulders. “We finally got together on Carnival. David told me that he organized the flapper costume for you. But you preferred to go to there with Sami.”

“I know. We run into each other that day.” Martha mumbled.

“It was that evening when we kissed for the first time. Since then, I don’t want to be with any other man but David. Strange, isn’t it?” Amelia continued. “I mean, as a mouse, I didn’t care about who was my mate. I preferred the most virile and strong mates. But with David, it’s different. It’s difficult to describe but I just feel so good when I’m with him and...” Suddenly, Amelia realised Martha’s sour face.
Amelia rose to her full height before she addressed Martha again. “Martha, I know that you have feelings for David. And frankly, you had your chance. David was wooing you all winter long. But you didn’t seize your chance. Instead you went to America. So don’t blame me for taking my chance when it came.”

Martha was about to object. But then she realised Amelia was right. She nodded. “I guess you won David’s heart. Congratulations. You are right. I had my chance and let it pass.”

Amelia’s reaction surprised Martha. “Don’t be sad. You still got Sami. You don’t have to be afraid that I will take him from you.”

Again Martha nodded. She realised that the choice had already been made for her. “Have fun with David! See ya!” she said and left Amelia.

Martha headed for the lobby to summon Sami and apologize to him for her behaviour during Carnival. When she stepped into the lobby, what Martha saw broke her heart. Sami was kissing another female genie with yellow skin and purple hair that Martha had never seen before. For a moment, she wanted to intervene, but then Martha simply turned crying and ran to her own lamp. She turned into smoke and went inside.

It's all in the picture. Have a close look and find out, what is wrong here.

I notice the blue genie has a navel despite the fact that genies aren't supposed to be born with them.
hippo2 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012
Right. So what does that mean?
Technomaru Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012
he must be a fake!

btw is Martha a innie or outie, can't tell because of the way you draw her.
hippo2 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012
But Martha doesn't know that this Sami's a fake. Let's see where this will lead to.

There's something fishy going on here. And there are some hints in the picture what is going on.

A heartbreaking twist. Did Martha choose wrong?
