- Kids, let me tell you the story of how your Uncle Rhys and I became friends.
See, your uncle had just crash - landed in my lap during a tedious meeting, and I almost crushed him with a table. But I didn't. It would've been bad, but I didn't. I've had a lot of moments when I wish that I did crush him, but those are stories for another day.
But what happened was that everyone was suspicious of him and he ended up tased by the devil lady that I told you guys to stay away from. And then your Aunt Jaden set off the fire alarm, which made things very unpleasant for all of us. So I had to carry Uncle Rhys back to my office on my shoulder, and woke him up by throwing a bucket of water onto his face.
Try it some time, kids. It feels very rewarding to see the other person jerk up in a panic and covered in water.
So anyways, what was I talking about?
Right, your uncle Rhys.
Anyways, then he asked for some fish fingers and custard - you know how much he loves those - which I actually thought was ridiculous at the time. Funny how times change, right? I didn't think that I would like it at all. I actually thought that he was crazy with the fish fingers thing. It actually was pretty strange at first, getting used to the texture and all, but...you know, pretty good.
So...yeah. Back to what I was saying.
I was ready to throw him out of my office - which would've been another very bad idea, considering how much your uncle helped all of us out. But that doesn't come until later. For now, he was just the freak who landed in my lap.
Don't call people freaks okay, Rose? Not unless you're angry enough.
All right, so I almost threw him out that day. But what made me stop was when I realized that he was a genetics professor. Now, you kids might remember how I used to be the director for this important team that fought a dangerous virus. But besides that, many people like us - superhumans - were losing their powers. No one knew why - only that it was connected with genetics.
So it was because your uncle Rhys mentioned that he was a genetics professor that I didn't just throw him out of my office. And because, poor guy, he couldn't get back to his time. So instead, I offered for him to work with us - or at least, the genetics team - in finding a cure to the super power problem.
Except that I put him on probation, since he seemed a little...well, you know your Uncle Rhys. So I was going to stick by him for the next week or so after that to make sure that he was getting used to the new millennium. And also so that he wouldn't touch whatever he wanted to touch. You know how often that gets him into trouble.
And the rest, they say, is history.
