Every child has those fantasies: that you are really a princess or have been left by aliens who'll beam you up one day.
Still, it comes as surprise when your big sister tells you that it is all true and takes you to the starship that had been hidden beneath the waves,
"But let it remain our little secret, OK?" she says.  
"I won't tell anybody!" you swear, licking your right finger and holding it up.
"And most of all, don't mention it to mom and dad. They aren't our parents exactly and would only be confused."
"Not our parents?" you gasp and suddenly it isn't glorious anymore. What kind of parents are your real parents that they left you in the hands of utter strangers, among people so primitive they can't even fly to Mars?
"You'd better sit down," your big sister says. "It is a long tale."
