The case had begun as all their cases began with a ping. After receiving the information from Artie they were on the first flight to Toronto. In the back of her mind were Pete's remarks about her sister being pregnant. She'd been truthful when she said that she wasn't jealous. Children were not part of her current to do list. No, Myka was just excited for his sister as she knew that this was something that Tracy had wanted. Tracy's pregnancy gave her the option to be an aunt and hold a new life without the added stress of motherhood.
From the moment they landed in Toronto the case was proving difficult to solve. They'd concluded that Mike wasn't using an artifact to heal himself and to keep playing. Next they struck out with the owner. Pete's exasperated statement about thousands of suspects ringing loud and clear in her mind. Whatever artifact was being used it was a fan who only attended the home games that had it. Their solution involved a raffle where they kept all the fans in one section and hopefully they'd spot the artifact and could bag it. Part of Myka wanted to prolong the case because despite their initial hostility she was finding Mike kind of charming. Though she wasn't going to give Pete anymore ammunition to tease her with. What little he had was annoying enough. When Mike had mentioned a kiss for good luck she hadn't seen the harm but no sooner had she done so than did she feel a twinge in her body.
Horrified, frightened and uncomfortable. Those were what she felt when she called Pete to meet her in the ladies room. All of a sudden she had found herself very pregnant. Her bra was cutting off the circulation and it wasn't until Pete had given her the hockey jersey that she breathed a sigh of relief. With the jersey now covering her she could remove her bra and breathe as easily as her newfound condition allowed. Artie's suggestion of it being a wish artifact send her hormones that were all ready in overdrive even more so. Her track record with wish artifacts was not the greatest. And though she loved her ferret now, at the time she had been a little disgruntled to have one dropped on her.
The hormones coursing through her body didn't even allow for her to be slightly angry at Pete for making a wish. If she thought of the reasoning for Pete's wish tears came to her eyes. Crying was not something that she liked to do in public, let alone at all. Once they had determined that it was Judy who was in possession of the artifact on her key chain they set off for her apartment. She'd ignored Pete's protests when she began eating his burrito. The cravings had not been satisfied with just one, so she'd began to tear into the second. Once inside they'd found out just how obsessed Judy was with Mike. Myka had shuddered and gone off to use the bathroom. Another downside to the damn artifact induced pregnancy. The baby was consistently sitting on her bladder. When she returned she mentioned how Judy wasn't coming back as drawers had been emptied and the bathroom was devoid of products. Walking she sat down in the armchair thinking about crazy obsessed fans. Her feet were aching and Pete could continue to look around the room. Something had to tell them where Judy was and where she'd taken Mike. As her body went to sit down she felt a shift in her equilibrium and found herself lying on her back on the ground. Turning her head she noticed grass and tried to sit up. Her stomach felt slightly smaller than it had a moment ago but movement was still hard.
Hearing someone approaching she called out for help. First, she needed to be upright again because lying on her back was not the way in which she wanted to get answers. Second, was finding out what the hell had happened and where she was. Because the whole situation smelled artifact related and that was something she was not in the mood for. One encounter with an artifact was enough but two in one day...
