Diapered Dandy And The Freedom Phalanx Reserve
By: Dementia’s Knight
<center>Part I: Outcast
Chapter I: Tarnished</center>
Paragon City, gem of the East Coast. On the surface it embodies truth, justice, and the American way. But look deeper and you’ll find a hotbed of corruption and evil. Multiple factions of evildoers, ranging from petty gangs to worldwide networks of mayhem seekers, inhabit the city and perpetrate their deeds mostly unimpeded. As Paragon City has an abundance of crime and evil, it also has an abundance of power to combat the evil, a large array of “meta-humans” that fight for the city with all their might, a fight that gives Paragon it’s nickname “The City of Heroes”.
Jesseca French became one of those heroes after an accident at a university lecture she was conducting. While she was displaying her prototype for a machine that could potentially cure incontinence, a fight between Synapse, a member of the Freedom Phalanx, and a small band of Clockwork, a robotic gang of mayhem seekers resulting in the machine overloading and blasting Jesseca with a massive amount of energy.
When she awoke, she found that she was regrettably still incontinent, but she was now endowed with the ability to channel energy into attacks and turn parts of her body to stone for protection. That day she became Diapered Dandy, a fledgling hero in Paragon City, and began her journey into crime fighting.
Shortly after she became a hero of the city, Jesseca became involved with several other heroes, Sue Radiance, Half-Life Hannah, Dementia’s Knight, Ataris, Severe, and Arson. These heroes were later revealed to be The Freedom Phalanx Reserve - Rise Of The Phoenix a band of heroes united to fight evil in the city. After a battle with the leader of the Clockwork, the Clockwork King’s giant robotic creation Babbage, in which Hannah gave her life Jesseca fell into a deep depression and regressed to an infantile state.
Several months later Hannah returned, her body possessed by the dark magic of the Circle of Thorns, and went on a destructive rampage throughout the city. Jesseca and her teammates fought against Hannah and fell under her onslaught, with only Jesseca left to defeat her former friend and ally. After Hannah was defeated it was revealed that the entire event had been part of a trial to prove that Jesseca had what was required to be a hero. The man conducting the trial, Ernesto Hess, used Sister Psyche, a member of The Freedom Phalanx, to wipe Jesseca’s memory of the entire ordeal and sent her on her way. Later, after “meeting” her former teammates and experiencing a profound sense of déjà vu Jesseca had Severe scan her memory for answers.
As the memories came rushing back, Jesseca was thrown into a rage that led her to kidnap and kill Ernesto Hess. Evading the police, Jesseca left her teammates to uncover the truth behind Ernesto Hess and his operation. Now, the once fledgling hero has become a pariah and fugitive with no power to help herself.
“Are you sure we should be meeting in public like this?” Jesseca asked Hannah as she looked around cautiously.
Hannah smiled after taking a sip of her iced coffee, “Relax dear, Severe is making us look like two seventy something gentlemen to anyone in a three block radius that sees us.” she explained.
Jesseca relaxed noticeably in her chair upon hearing that news and took a sip of her own drink. “Have you guys found anything useful yet about Hess?” she asked.
Hannah nodded, “We found a few files on his computer that link him to the Malta Group, Knight and Ataris are checking out the lead right now.” she said.
“What’s the Malta Group?” Jesseca asked.
“They’re a paramilitary group that sells their services to the highest bidder. They have an unlimited budget, and a limitless army of spies and assassins. They operate under the governments radar, and whenever they’re involved in something it’s very serious.” Hannah explained.
“What would Ernesto Hess have to do with a group like that?” Jesseca asked.
Hannah shrugged. “I don’t know, but whatever he was involved with, it won’t be easy to bring it into the light, Malta will see to that.” she said.
Jesseca slumped in her chair with a pout on her face. “So basically there’s no telling how long I have to go without using my powers?” she asked.
“Aww, don’t look so down.” Hannah said with a smile. “Until we sort this out, why don’t you hang out at the base and get to know the team a bit better, that way when all of this blows over, everything will be smooth sailing.” she said as she got up from her seat.
Jesseca smiled and nodded. “I think I will.” she said and waved to Hannah as she walked away.
“Remind me again why we’re risking our necks to clear the homicidal white girl’s name.” Ataris said as he and Dementia’s Knight crept along the rooftop of the building the file on Ernesto Hess’ computer had led them to.
Knight turned to face Ataris. “When we became heroes we vowed to help anyone in need of assistance. Jesseca says that Hess was involved in something other than what he was payed to be doing, and the file on his computer corroborates that, hence we risk our necks for the homicidal white girl.” Knight said before turning back to their slink across the rooftop.
The pair crept to the edge of the roof and looked across the street to the adjoining rooftop where a black helicopter was landing. Several well armed soldiers in full black-ops gear were waiting for the passenger of the helicopter to emerge.
“Looks like our guys.” Knight said.
“For a secret group that operates in the shadows, a daylight helipad meeting seems a little out of character.” Ataris said.
“You’re right.” Knight said, and turned just in time to see a bandoleer of grenades land at their feet, tossed by a fleeing Malta soldier.
“Hi Hanako.” Jesseca said with a smile as she walked into the small atrium where the young Korean girl was tending to her plants.
“Hello Jesseca, it is good to see you again, and in good spirits too.” Hanako said with a smile of her own.
Jesseca kneeled next to Hanako and marveled as she watched a wilting rose flourish and bloom as Hanako held her hand near it. “That’s quite the green thumb you have.” Jesseca commented.
“My name means Flower Child, so it’s only fitting that I live up to my namesake.” Hanako said. “Tell me Jesseca, what can I do for you?” she asked.
“Well, Hannah thought it would be a good idea to get to know you guys, and you’re the first person I’ve seen, so you get to go first.” she explained.
“I see, what would you like to know about me?” Hanako asked as she pruned the newly rejuvenated flowers.
“Well, where are you from? How’d you become a hero? The basics.” Jesseca said.
“I am seventeen years old. I immigrated to America with my parents when I was seven. When my father got us passage to America, he was led to believe that he and my mother would have jobs and a better life waiting for us here, but he was deceived.” Hanako said. “When we arrived here, we discovered that we had been sold into slavery to the Tsoo, an American faction of the Yakuza.” she explained, a forlorn expression on her face as she recounted her history.
“That’s awful, what did your father do?” Jesseca asked.
“My father and mother and I worked everyday for the Tsoo, hoping that we would be rewarded for our hard work with our freedom, but as the months and years went on, our hope began to fade.” she said. “One night out of desperation to save his family, my father gathered my mother and I and attempted to escape the camp the Tsoo were keeping us in. As we neared the fences we were attacked by several of the Tsoo, they killed my parents right in front of me, and moved in to do the same to me.” she said, a single tear trailing down her pale cheek.
“What did you do?” Jesseca asked, her own eyes brimming with tears of sympathy for the brave young girl.
“My powers emerged that night as the Tsoo warriors moved in on me, and I killed them all.” she said flatly. “After I escaped I lived on the streets for a long while before I was discovered by Ataris, he brought me in to give me a warm place to stay, and when he discovered my talents I was recruited to the team.” she said.
“Wow, that’s an incredible story Hanako.” Jesseca said. “You’re a very brave woman.” she added.
Hanako bowed her head to Jesseca. “Thank you very much Jesseca.” she said with a smile.
Jesseca returned her bow and rose to her feet. “I’m glad to be on the team with you.” she said as she made her way out of the room.
“I am as well.” Hanako said and went back to caring for her flowers.
In the seconds before the grenades went off, Knight used his power over dark energy to teleport across the roof and grab the fleeing soldier, knocking him to the ground and pinning him down. Ataris used his power to make his body intangible and stood in the explosion unharmed.
“Knight, I hate to ruin your fun,” Ataris said as he came upon the armored her beating on the captured soldier. “but those other soldiers are gonna come and investigate that explosion soon, maybe we should question this guy back home.” he suggested.
Knight nodded and hoisted the unconscious soldier over his shoulder and made his way back to the base with Ataris.
In a large office across town a man sat at his desk. He tapped away at the keyboard of his computer when his phone began ringing.
“Yes?” he asked as he picked up the receiver/ A voice on the other end said something, causing the man to furrow his brow. “So, they escaped, and they have one of our men in custody?” he asked and listened to the reply from the voice on the other end. “We can ill afford for them to discover our plans.” he said, “Call in the Blades of Artemis, I want this resolved tonight.” he said and hung up.
The man turned his chair around to face the window and looked down on the city below. He smiled as he thought of the assassins he’d just dispatched slaughtering the band of heroes in accordance with his orders, and turned back to his computer.

Chapter II: Back In The Fight</center>
“Can I come in Brianna?” Jesseca asked as she stood in the doorway of Arson’s room.
“It’s a free country.” the raven haired young woman said as she sat on her bed reading a magazine.
Jesseca furrowed her brow at the rudeness that was just displayed to her, but entered and took a seat in the chair at Arson’s desk. “I just wanted to get to know a little bit about your past and where you got your powers and stuff.” she said with a pleasant smile.
“You quit being a hero and become a biographer or something?” Arson asked without looking up from her magazine.
Jesseca began to get angry. “Look, I’m just trying to fit in here with you guys.” she said.
Arson looked up at her finally, “Well, going insane and killing city officials is probably not the best place to start then.” she said and went back to reading her magazine.
Jesseca felt her anger well up and saw her hands begin to glow with red energy. “Calm down.” she thought to herself.
Arson looked up when she noticed the red glow in the room. “Aww, does the baby wanna fight?” she asked in a mocking tone.
Jesseca got up and walked to the door. “Y’know, some day you’re gonna need my help, and I may not help you because of your attitude.” she said.
“Well I guess if I ever need help shitting my pants I’ll have to look elsewhere for advice.” Arson said.
Jesseca growled angrily and stormed out of the room despite the overwhelming urge to beat the pretty young firebug’s face in.
“Alright, let’s sit him here, get something to tie him up with.” Knight said as he and Ataris entered the base with their captive still slung over Knight’s shoulder. The soldier was put in a chair, and tied up with some rope that Ataris found.
“When he wakes up we pump him for intel and turn him over to Longbow, they can do what they want with him after we’re done.” Knight said as he took a seat across from the soldier and waited for him to wake up. Ataris splashed a glass of ice water on the man’s face to help in the waking process.
“Wha- Where am I?” the man asked as he came around.
“Not important.” Knight said. “What is important is what Malta has to do with Ernesto Hess.” he said.
“Who?” the man asked.
“Ernesto Hess, the man that until a week ago was in charge of new hero orientation. We found files on his computer that link him to Malta, now what do they have going on?” Knight asked.
“Look, I’m just a low level grunt, I have no idea what’s going on, I just go where I’m told.” the man said.
“How’d you know we’d be on the roof?” Ataris asked.
The man started to answer when a dagger flew through the air and impaled the man in the chest. Knight and Ataris turned around to see several woman in black leather body suits armed to the teeth standing near the entrance to the base.
“Secondary objective complete.” the dagger woman said to the others. “Proceed with primary objective.” she said. The other women hit the small buttons on their belts and disappeared under a cloaking device.
“And here I thought we’d get to have a nice chat.” Knight said. “Breach!” he yelled to anyone within the base before he rushed toward the lead assassin.
Jesseca rushed to the main entrance area of the base, Arson and Flower Child behind her. They saw Knight and Ataris engaged in combat with unseen attackers.
“Umm, does anyone else not see what we’re supposed to be fighting?” Jesseca asked before being struck in the face by one of the assassins. The blow knocked her back into Arson and Flower Child, but she recovered quickly, and looked around for any sign of where the attack had come from.
Knight had managed to grab one of the assassins and punched her belt causing her cloaking device to malfunction and make her visible again. He picked the woman up and heaved her into a wall across the room, he paused for a second to make sure she didn’t get back up before he turned his attention to any other attackers. As he turned around he was struck in the chest by a throwing star bomb, the blast sent him flying backward, his armored chest heavily dented.
“Knight!” Ataris shouted as he phase shifted his body to it’s intangible form and went to his leaders side.
Flower Child had created a wall of roots between Arson, Jesseca, and herself to buy time so they could formulate a plan.
“We need to find a way to see them.” Arson said as she saw the roots in front of the being hacked away at by a sword on the other side.
Jesseca thought for a second. “Hollow Man.” she said.
“Yes, it sucked, how does this help us?” Arson asked impatiently.
“In the movie they could see the invisible man by the water from the sprinkler system covering his body.” Jesseca explained.
Arson looked up at the sprinkler overhead and ignited her finger with a large flame. Water burst from the sprayer on the ceiling as the fire alarm began to sound. A second later Arson blasted the roots away with a fireball and leapt through to the other side, the other two women following her lead.
The water cascaded off of the assassins and served to betray their location somewhat. Jesseca found her first target and gave her a devastating right hook that spun the woman around like a top before sending her crashing to the floor.
Arson had blasted two of the attackers with flame jets, and left them smoldering on the floor. As she turned to another, she was ensnared in a wire net of some sort that on of the women had thrown at her. The assassin hit a button on her belt and a powerful electrical current coursed through Arson from the net. Arson howled in pain and collapsed to the ground after the attack stopped a moment later. She lay helpless as the woman moved in with her sword to finish the job.
“Get away from her you bitch!” Jesseca yelled as she leapt from the breakfast table and plowed into the woman with her stone feet, smashing her into the ground. Jesseca picked up the crushed woman’s sword and cut the net open to free Arson.
“You saved me.” Arson said weakly as she looked up at Jesseca.
“Don’t take it personally, I just didn’t want anyone taking my chance to kill you.” Jesseca said with a smile as she helped Arson to her feet.
Flower Child had the remaining two assassins wrapped in a tangle of thorny vines on the other side of the room, and was with Ataris trying to help the heavily armored team leader to his feet.
“Get any survivors to the holding cells, no clothing, I don’t want to take any chances with these women.” Knight said as he took a seat to avoid falling over.
Jesseca helped Arson to the couch and went with Ataris and Flower Child to lock up the surviving attackers.
“And someone turn off the water before I rust!” Knight yelled after them.
The base was running a clean sweep to get rid of the mess from the battle, while Ataris was turning up the security programs on the base. Jesseca lay on her bed with her pillow over her face, her body unwinding from the excitement of the afternoon.
“Umm, Jesseca, can I come in?” Arson asked from the doorway.
Jesseca removed the pillow from her face. “Come to mock me again?” she asked.
“Actually, I came to apologize and thank you.” Arson said. “I never had a family when I was growing up, I was abandoned by my parents when I was born, and by the time I hit fifteen I was living in halfway houses. It’s not an excuse for me to be rude, but I just think the whole thing made me kind of a shut in, and a bitch honestly.” she said.
Jesseca nodded in agreement with her.
“When I was about sixteen, I hooked up with some anarchist kids, and we set fires and looted places, tagged buildings, all kinds of bad stuff. Well, we wanted to do something big to gain street cred, so we went to a factory owned by The Crey Corporation and planned to bomb it.” she said. “As we were setting the last charges, Longbow agents showed up and started to bring us down. I was up on a catwalk, and caught a laser blast to the chest that knocked me into a vat of chemicals. The bombs went off while I was still covered in the stuff, and somehow the fire that engulfed me and the factory gave me power. After that I went straight and joined the FPR.” she said.
“Doesn’t surprise me that you were a street punk.” Jesseca said with a smile.
“Anyway, I’m sorry for earlier, and I appreciate you saving me even though I was a bitch to you.” Arson said.
“If we’re gonna be teammates, we should try and be friends too.” Jesseca said.
“I’m starting to understand that.” Arson said. “But I’m not changing your diapers.” she added with a smile.
“For right now, I’d settle for civility.” Jesseca said.
“That I can do.” Arson said as she put her hand out to shake Jesseca’s. The pair shook hands and smiled at each other.
“Now that we’ve got that taken care of, how about a friendly ass kicking in the training room?” Jesseca asked.
“I dunno, isn’t it almost your bedtime baby girl?” Arson teased.
Jesseca cracked her knuckles and glared at Arson. “It is looking like lights out time now that you mention it.” she said.
“Uh oh, looks like someone’s cranky.” Arson said and ran out of the room.
“I’ll show you cranky!” Jesseca called out as she ran after her.
“The Blades Of Artemis failed as well?” the man in the large office asked the man on the other end of the phone. “It appears that we severely underestimated our adversaries yet again.” he said. “I want the Titan program put into effect immediately.” the man commanded and hung up the phone.
The man turned to look out the window, he took a pill bottle from his pocket and popped one of the pills into his mouth. “Calm yourself.” he thought as he massaged his temple and felt his heart rate begin to calm itself. “This will be resolved shortly.” he thought with a satisfied smirk.

Chapter III: “I’ve Got A Secret.”</center>
Jesseca reached the door to the training room after Brianna had gone inside, she ran in and turned as the doors shut behind her, leaving her in total darkness.
“Computer, Skyway City street simulation.” Brianna said from within the darkness.
Jesseca spun around and marveled as she watched the room light up and transform into an exact copy of downtown Skyway City. “This is amazing.” Jesseca said.
“Sure is. State of the art holographic technology that makes the holograms solid, so essentially everything in here is real.” Brianna called out from her perch atop a light post at the end of the block.
Jesseca continued to look around, she was amazed that she could even feel the heat from the sun inside the simulated city. “I’m gonna have to get a look at this technology close up.” she said.
“You’ll get a chance as soon as you regain consciousness.” Arson said as she leapt into the air and rocketed toward Jesseca, fists engulfed in flames. As she neared Jesseca she threw her first fiery punch which sailed over Jesseca’s ducking head.
“Gonna have to be quicker than that honey.” Jesseca shouted with a giggle as she ran in the other direction of Arson.
“At least I’m not running away from the fight.” Arson called after her as she hurled several fireballs at her foe, all exploding on the heels of Jesseca’s retreat.
“Not running,” Jesseca said as she neared the light post where Arson had been perched and leapt at it, her hands charged with energy, and her feet encasing in stone as she traveled through the air causing the pole to rip from the concrete as she grabbed it as she passed by. “Just getting a weapon.” she finished as she swung the post at Arson, connecting with the young hero and sending her slamming into a wall across the street.
Arson stayed on the ground for several moments before slowly getting to her feet, still reeling from the blow, she didn’t have time to react when Jesseca hit her with an energy charged uppercut square in the jaw, smashing her back into the wall, and keeping her on the ground.
“That was fun.” Jesseca said as she sat down next to the unconscious girl.
“Ow.” Arson mumbled as she slowly sat up, her mind in a fog.
“Sorry I had to beat you so bad, but I thought you could do with a good beating.” Jesseca said with a smile.
Arson massaged her temples as the fog cleared from her head. “I’m gonna want a rematch you know.” she said with a glare that was soon replaced by a smirk.
“Anytime, anyplace.” Jesseca said as she got to her feet and helped Arson to hers.
“Good.” Arson said as she sucker punched Jesseca with a flaming fist and sent the diapered hero flying backward into a parked car, smashing the windshield and denting the hood considerably.
“You dirty little cheater.” Jesseca said as she massaged her jaw as she got off the car.
Arson flew at Jesseca and grabbed her and flew high into the air with her in tow. “Happy landings.” she said as she dropped her opponent.
Jesseca screamed as she plummeted to the ground, and watched as Arson flew to her quickly. When Arson got into range Jesseca gave her a hard kick to the stomach with a stony foot and took flight for herself, letting Arson take her place in a small crater in the concrete. Jesseca stayed aloft for a moment before landing a few yards from the crater Arson had created.
“You never said you could fly.” Arson mumbled as she shakily climbed out of the Earth.
“Never said I couldn’t.” Jesseca replied. “Now, be a good girl and have enough sense to admit defeat before you get seriously hurt.” she added.
Arson nodded. “Computer, end simulation.” she said.
The city scene disappeared, and was again returned to the stark emptiness of the training room. “Man, getting beat by you is just humiliating.” Arson said after a long silence.
Jesseca stuck her tongue out at Arson. “Y’know, you’re like the little sister I never wanted.” she said as she put her arm around Arson to support the wabbling girl.
“I’m the little sister, and you’re the one in diapers, that makes sense.” she said with a smile.
The two left the training room laughing together, their friendship blossoming with every word, even the insults.
The room had the sweet scent of baby powder looming throughout it. The silence of the room was disturbed by the ripping of tape from plastic and the giggling of a woman.
“My goodness, what a wet baby girl I have.” Hannah said as she tickled her charges tummy, getting another giggle.
A knock at the door ceased the noise and movement in the room. “Hannah, are you in there? I wanted to talk to you.” Jesseca said from outside the door.
Hannah looked at Elysa who was shaking her head vigorously in protest of her saying anything. Hannah smiled at her sister. “I think we should tell her.” she whispered.
Elysa sucked her pacifier nervously and shook her head in protest again.
“Come on in Jess.” Hannah said.
The door opened, and the three woman just looked at one another in silence for a long while.
“You said you wanted to talk to me about something.” Hannah said finally breaking the silence as she proceeded with changing Elysa’s diaper.
“I, umm, What’s going on?” Jesseca managed to stammer out after much difficulty.
“I’m getting Elysa ready for bed, wanna help?” Hannah asked.
“…I guess so.” Jesseca said, and made her way slowly to the bed where the changing was occurring.
Elysa blushed bright red and attempted to hide behind her stuffed bunny.
“Aww, don’t be shy baby, say hello to Jesseca.” Hannah encouraged her sister as she moved the bunny from her face.
“Hewwo Desseca.” Elysa said through her pacifier.
“Hi Elysa.” Jesseca said with a confused smile. “What happened to her?” she asked Hannah.
“Nothing, she just likes to play baby sometimes.” Hannah explained. “Don’t you 'Lysa?” she cooed to her sister.
Elysa only nodded and blushed again.
Hannah finished diapering Elysa and sat the young girl up and began dressing her in a light blue onsie with a baby duck embroidered on the breast.
Jesseca watched as Elysa was adorned with the infantile clothing and her blue hair was put into pigtails, and her transformation was complete.
Hannah picked her sister up off of the bed and carried her on her hip into the adjoining room. Jesseca followed behind the pair, and had her eyes go wide as saucers when she saw the room she’d entered. The room looked just like a nursery for an infant, but everything was sized for an adult.Jesseca wandered around and took in all of the sites of the room while Hannah lay Elysa down into the large crib to put her to bed.
“Goodnight my sweet angel.” Hannah said as she kissed her hand and pressed the kiss to her sister’s forehead gently.
Hannah guided Jesseca out of the room, turning on a night light before closing the door behind them as they left.
“I’ll bet you have a lot of questions.” Hannah said.
“I’m just trying to understand why she enjoys that.” Jesseca said.
“When I moved out of our parents house and here to Paragon, I was eighteen and Elysa was ten. Elysa begged me to take her with me, our parents were against it, but wanted Elysa to be happy, so they agreed, and so did I, and Elysa and I got a place together. I got a job at the Terra Volta reactor when we got here, and had the job for a little over four years before my powers emerged.” Hannah explained.
Jesseca listened intently to Hannah’s story until she felt a familiar squishy feeling in the seat of her diaper that signaled to her that she’d messed herself. She hoped that she could get out of the room before Hannah noticed, and tried to go back to listening to the story.
“Elysa became very jealous of my powers and new career as a hero, and started acting up. She’d break things to get my attention, and make messes around the house, it got her some attention, but it wasn’t what she wanted. One night she wet her bed and came into my room looking so sad and pathetic that my heart melted when I saw her. I helped her get cleaned up and then cuddled with her till she fell asleep again. I guess it made a profound impact on her, because she started having more frequent accidents and began regressing more and more often until she had a whole other persona in 'Lysa. By that time, her own powers had blossomed, and she could finally join me as a hero, but she still enjoyed 'Lysa time so we continued it.” Hannah said.
“I guess that makes sense. She does look adorable, and very happy. She’s lucky to have such a loving sister.” Jesseca said and rose to leave the room.
“Don’t rush off just because you have poopy pants.” Hannah said with a smile.
“How-” Jesseca started.
“Honey, I’d know a baby with a poopy diaper from a block away, did you think I wouldn’t notice one sitting next to me?” Hannah asked.
Jesseca blushed and hung her head in shame. “I’m not a baby.” she mumbled to her chest.
Hannah put a hand on Jesseca’s shoulder and raised her chin up with her other hand. “But you could be, if you wanted to.” Hannah said as she gazed into Jesseca’s bright blue eyes.
Jesseca felt funny, like she had butterflies in her stomach.
“I could change that icky diaper for you if you want.” Hannah offered.
Jesseca felt conflicted. Hannah was being so nice to her, she was offering to clean her poop for crying out loud, but at the same time she felt it wrong to say yes. “I’m not sure.” she finally replied.
“Well, I’ll tell you what, you ever change your mind about getting a helping hand with your diaper changes, you just holler.” Hannah said with a smile.
Jesseca nodded and shuffled slowly out the door. After the door closed behind her she turned and raised her hand to knock on it and then let it drop. “Maybe some other time.” she thought and turned to head to her room, she stopped and turned back to the door she sighed and knocked softly.
Hannah smiled when she heard the soft rapping upon the door, and smiled wider as she ushered Jesseca into the room and helped her down onto the bed.
“I’ll have that icky diaper changed in a jiffy honey.” Hannah said as she gathered the necessary supplies together.
The butterflies in Jesseca’s stomach began to square dance, and she started to feel like she’d made the wrong choice, but as she thought about her current predicament, she felt a rubber teat enter her mouth, and looked to see a pacifier emerging from between her lips.
“There’s nothing to worry about honey, just relax.” Hannah cooed as she stroked Jesseca’s blonde hair aside gently to provide a clear view of her pretty face.
Jesseca smiled and actually began to suck the pacifier as Hannah went to work on her diaper. Lost in her thoughts, Jesseca didn’t even notice when Hannah had finished and was helping her sit up to put a pink onsie similar to 'Lysa’s on her.
“All ready.” Hannah proclaimed and picked Jesseca up and carried her into 'Lysa’s nursery.
Jesseca squirmed to be let down when she realized what was happening, but got a sharp swat on her thigh from Hannah that made her immediately settle down and go quietly down into the crib next to 'Lysa.
“We’ll talk more tomorrow.” Hannah whispered and gave Jesseca the same goodnight kiss she’s given Elysa and left the room again.
Jesseca looked at herself and then at Elysa, and smiled. “This does feel kind of good.” she thought, and snuggled up to Elysa in the crib and drifted off to sleep.
