Alice was visiting her parents for the first time in a couple months. but on her mind was locked on a conversation she had with Mia the day before.
"mom, do you remember my friend Mia?" She said from the kitchen bar stool.
her mother looked at her surprised by the way the question was phrased.
"how could I not, she has helped you through so much" her mother said resuming her cooking.
Alice looked at the floor for a second.
"yeah, she has. but we still really don't know where she came from" looking back at her mother as she turned around.
her mother placed her cooking utensils on the counter and leaned on the counter facing Alice.
"well don't look at your father and I we didn't commission her as an Item for you" Mrs. Wire said not really understanding her daughter but still trying to listen.
Alice Straightened up a little
"I know that. but I'm thankful for the gifts you did commission for me. but Mia and I were discussing it one day and her theory is I created her for companionship while I was touring the American Civil War." saying enough for her mother to understand
Mrs. Wire looked her daughter right in the eye and smiled
"maybe she's right" she said
Alice slouched and broke eye contact
"well, no matter how nice it would be to know, I'm glad to have her" she smiled back
