Pearl was soon taken to the hospital.
"Okay, ma'am, are you comfortable?" A nurse asked Pearl.
"Yes, for right now..." Pearl sighed. "I just can't believe this is really it." She soon felt a strong kick. This made the future mother yelp.
"Oh, my, it seems like they really wanna come out of there." The nurse tried to giggle.
"It felt like one of them kicked so hard it felt like a wrecking ball." Pearl winced.
"Hmm... That's interesting..." The nurse replied.
"Good day, ma'am, how are we doing?" The doctor smiled as he came in.
Pearl responded with a loud scream of pain and agony.
"I get that a lot..." The doctor pushed his glasses back. "Let's get started, shall we?"
"Please!" Pearl begged.
Soon enough, the surgery began and Pearl breathed shallowly and wheezily as she squeezed Mike's hand while the doctor told her to push. After a while, two baby cries came out. Pearl and Mike smiled with tears in their eyes as they had a new baby boy and baby girl. Soon enough, Pearl came out in a wheelchair with the babies in blankets in her arms.
"Scrappy, meet your new baby... BROTHER AND SISTER...." Mike told the former orphaned mouse, seeming to go in slow-motion with the dramatic moment of Scrappy now becoming a big brother.
The babies were soon shown to Scrappy. Scrappy's eyes widened as time seemed to stand still for him. The baby boy seemed to have a tuft of blonde hair like Pearl while the baby girl had black hair like Mike.
"They're... Wow." Scrappy smiled.
"Meet your new little brother and sister," Mike smiled back to him. "Maxwell and Millicent, but Max and Millie for short."
"So, which one of them has your powers?" Scrappy whispered to his adoptive father.
"We haven't tested it yet, they're sleeping, but it has to be Max, right?" Mike whispered back.
"Or Millie." Pearl added.
"Ah, come on, Pearl, she's just my dainty little girl," Mike chuckled as he patted his daughter on the head. "She'll have her big brother and Daddy to watch over her."
Millie soon seemed to grasp Mike's finger and lifted him up in the air with a giggle like Baby Hercules did with Zeus.
"Or maybe she will." Mike smiled.
"I'm suddenly scared to ever let down my little sister." Scrappy commented.
"Yep," Mike chuckled. "Sure looks like it."
Scrappy soon came to the baby twins and tilted his head. "What if they don't like me?"
Millie and Max soon looked at their big brother and tilted their heads back at him. Scrappy looked around and then blinked to his baby siblings. Millie and Max stared back at Scrappy until they blinked back to him.
"Looks like they might already like you." Pearl smiled.
"So, when can I play with them?" Scrappy asked his adoptive parents.
"You'll have to wait, Scrappy, but the time will come before you know it," Mike smiled. "We just know you'll be a wonderful big brother, but we'll need your help."
"I'll try..." Scrappy smiled back sheepishly. "I've always wanted brothers and sisters."
"And now you do." Pearl smiled back.
Scrappy smiled to Max and Millie. "Can I hold 'em?" he then asked.
Mike told Scrappy to be very careful as he soon held his little brother and sister for the first time.
"Hey, guys, the name's Scrappy," Scrappy smiled down to his baby siblings. "I'm your big brother, if anyone bullies you, come and tell me, 'cuz then they'll have to deal with me, and I'm not gonna let anyone ever mess with you guys."
Millie and Max felt safe with Scrappy. Scrappy smiled to them while Mike and Pearl smiled happily to this with proud tears of joy in their eyes.
Jerry, Patch, Muscles, and Melanie soon arrived.
"How is she, Doc?" Melanie asked about her sister.
"It's okay," The doctor smiled. "Ms. Pureheart has given birth to happy and healthy baby twins, a boy and a girl."
"Thank goodness." Melanie sighed.
Eventually, it was time for everyone to see the babies from behind the glass.
"Ooh, which ones are they?" Melanie giggled. "Those ones? Those ones? Those ones?"
"I think I found them, Melanie." Jerry chuckled to the female mouse.
"Aw!" Melanie smiled as she saw the baby twins.
"Aw, they're adorable," Jerry smiled as well. "They look like me and Mariana when we were babies."
"They are pretty precious, cous." Muscles agreed.
"I wonder which one is like Mike?" Melanie wondered.
"I guess it can go either way, but one of them is bound to have special powers if you catch my meaning." Muscles hinted since they were in a public place.
"I'm sure one of them will." Patch said.
"It'll be a story to share," Melanie smiled. "Like when Pearl told Scrappy about how Mighty Mouse came to be."
"Yep." Pearl smiled back as she and Mike came in.
"Congratulations, you two." Melanie smiled back to Pearl and Mike as they came out of the maternity ward.
"We're happy to have them." Mike smiled back.
"Oh, how sweet~" Melanie cooed to the couple.
Muscles blushed from her smile as he stood beside her.
"And Jerry, you're looking stronger than before." Mike said to Muscles's cousin.
"Oh, thanks," Jerry smiled as he flexed his arms. "Muscles has been helping me up with some upper body strength."
"And we can tell the results have been good." Pearl said.
"Oh, thanks," Jerry smiled. "I can't wait to show Tom. I wonder if Robyn can let us have friendly wrestling matches?"
"Probably, but I'd give her a head's up first." Patch chuckled.
"I will." Jerry nodded.
Things were wrapping up nicely for this visit to Mouseville for everybody.
"This was a great experience," Patch smiled. "I got to meet Mighty Mouse, and it's almost Spring Break! Could this time get any better?"
"I see something white flying in." Scrappy said.
"Huh?" Patch asked before taking a look where Scrappy looked, and where he saw a familiar white Labrador. "Is that... Is that...?" Patch's eyes widened in shock and pleased surprise. "K-Krypto the Superdog?!"
"Um, is he going to land into the city?" Jerry asked.
"That's what it looks like!" Patch smiled. "Oh, boy, my idol next to Thunderbolt is really coming!"
"But since he's not mouse-sized, won't that be dangerous?" Jerry asked.
Patch shrugged as he was just excited to see Krypto coming into town.
"I think we might need to meet him outside of Mouseville." Muscles said.
"Aww..." Patch pouted. "I wanted to see him now..."
"Patch, he might crush the city." Jerry told the Dalmatian.
"Aw, okay..." Patch replied. "I guess you guys have a point."
The group soon went outside of Mouseville. The super dog soon came over and flew towards Patch once it was safe.
"SUPER DOG!" Patch beamed. "Somebody pinch me!"
Muscles simply pinched Patch with a smirk.
"YOW!" Patch yelped before glaring with a growl.
"What?" Muscles smirked. "You said..."
Patch rolled his eyes, but smiled to Krypto. "I can't believe you're actually here... What are you doing here though?" he then wondered about his superhero idol.
"Remember your visit at the Dog Star HQ?" Krypto asked Patch.
"Uh-huh!" Patch beamed in excitement with his tail wagging.
"Take it easy, Patch!" Jerry said.
"Sorry, Jerry." Patch smiled sheepishly.
"Well, you're going to be a member and the same goes for Mighty Mouse." Krypto said.
"Mighty Mouse is going to be a Dog Star?" Patch asked in slight surprise.
"Yep," Krypto nodded before being confused. "By the way, how did you get to the size of a mouse?"
"Oh, just a bit of magic," Patch replied. "Jerry invited me to come to Mouseville with him and his cousin Muscles."
"Ah, the second strongest mouse in the world I take it." Krypto said as he looked at Muscles.
"All thanks to Mighty Mouse himself," Muscles chuckled. "So, he's gonna be a Dog Star, huh? That sounds like quite the story."
"Yep." Krypto nodded.
"So, I get to be a Dog Star too?" Patch beamed. "Are you sure I'm worthy enough, Krypto?"
"You sure are especially after your visit." Krypto smiled.
Patch smiled back sheepishly to that. "Thanks, Krypto."
"I was sure you'd like to hear that news, that's why I came over as quickly as I could to find you." Krypto replied.
"So, you're the famous Dog of Steel?" Muscles smirked.
"That would be me." Krypto smiled. "I guess you're Muscles?"
"That's me," Muscles replied. "Jerry is my cousin."
"Uh-oh, I know that look in Muscles's eyes anywhere." Jerry smiled.
"Is this good or bad?" Krypto asked.
"Good for me in a way, and interesting for ya." Muscles smirked to the super dog.
"He wants to test your strength." Patch told his superhero idol.
"Ah, I see," Krypto smiled. "Sure thing, Muscles, we can do that."
"No holding back, Super Dog." Muscles told him.
"Don't worry," Krypto said. "I won't."
Muscles smirked to this.
"Let's get ready to rumble!" Jerry announced like in a wrestling match since this was going to be fun for Muscles.
Muscles soon pounced on Krypto. Krypto yelped in slight surprise. Patch and Jerry were both excited to see this happening up close. Krypto began to fight back. Muscles grinned as he had a lot of fun that he got to tangle with Krypto.
Krypto wanted to be careful at times since Muscles was a mouse, but the brown mouse proved to be a bigger challenge than he expected. "You remind me of when I first met Mammoth Mutt." he then chuckled.
"And where she's a pink chihuahua." Patch said.
"A tiny pink rat?" Muscles asked.
"Oh, do not call her that..." Patch warned. "Mammoth Mutt really packs a punch for her small size... Kinda reminds me of my niece when she gets pushed enough."
"Wow." Muscles said.
Krypto and Muscles continued to have their little match while Patch was amazed to just see this up close until the match would be over.
And where after a while, Muscles and Krypto were evenly matched.
"Thanks, Krypto, I've wanted to do that for a while." Muscles panted before taking a drink of water.
"Glad I could help." Krypto weakly chuckled.
"That was amazing." Patch smiled.
"Yeah, it really was," Krypto smiled back. "Glad I could be of service for ya, Muscles."
"And I'm glad to have met ya." Muscles smiled back.
"I can't wait to tell Atticus all about this." Patch was so excited.
"And I can't wait to tell Robyn." Jerry smiled
Krypto smiled back to them.
"Well, I'm moving in here, so I guess you guys are gonna go home then?" Muscles asked.
"Yeah, besides, I'm sure Atticus is missing me." Patch said.
"I better get back to Tom and Robyn too." Jerry added.
"All right, you guys," Muscles nodded. "Keep in touch, and I'll see you guys around."
"Will do." Jerry and Patch promised Muscles.
Patch's spell soon started to wear off. The Dalmatian looked to himself as he began to grow in size. "Uh-oh, I'm becoming Alice in Wonderland when she ate those cookies now!"
"Let's get you back home then." Krypto offered to give Patch a way back home since he was getting back to his normal size.
"Awesome." Patch smiled.
Everyone soon waved as Jerry and Patch came back home. Krypto soon gave Patch a ride back home in style. Of course, Patch enjoyed the flight back home. Krypto smiled to Patch as they flew off together back to his home with Atticus and his family.
"Bet I can beat you there." Patch smirked to his superhero idol.
"Oh, you're on!" Krypto smirked back.
The two then zipped off together to fly back to the Fudo household. The two of them were fast, but Krypto being the oldest was faster. Patch panted as he couldn't match Krypto's speed.
"Don't worry!" Krypto smiled to Patch. "You'll get it someday! I just have more experience than you do!"
"You sure do." Patch panted.
Soon enough, Krypto made it to the Fudo household first with Patch coming in second. Emily opened the window and smiled as she waved to the two dogs.
"So, uh, your family knows you're a different dog..." Krypto replied. "I can't get used to that."
"You'll get used to it soon enough, Thunderbolt felt the same way." Patch smiled as they saw his big brother dog figure doing push-ups in the backyard.
Krypto came with Patch to see Thunderbolt.
"Oh, hey, Patch," Thunderbolt smiled to the young Dalmatian. "We really missed you over here."
"I miss you all too and I can see your keeping yourself in shape." Patch smiled back.
"Well, what can I say?" Thunderbolt smiled. "Oh, you've brought a friend with you."
"Thunderbolt, this is Krypto, or as he's better known as, Superdog." Patch introduced.
"Superdog, huh?" Thunderbolt asked. "So, um, did you come from that planet?"
"Yes, but my new home is on Earth like my master, Superman." Krypto smiled.
"It's an honor to meet you." Thunderbolt smiled back.
"So, this is the famous Thunderbolt from TV, huh?" Krypto smiled.
"Yeah, except that my show isn't on TV anymore." Thunderbolt frowned.
"Oh, sorry about that..." Krypto replied.
"Eh, it's okay," Thunderbolt said. "That's also why I came here to live with Patch and his family."
"And I also may or may not have given him powers." Patch smiled bashfully.
"Oh, you, little..." Krypto chuckled to Patch.
"I thought it'd be a good use..." Patch smiled. "After all, Atticus was the one who made me the strong dog I am today."
"Yep, and I go by Thunder Mutt when using my powers." Thunderbolt said.
"Thunder Mutt, what an interesting name," Krypto smiled in approval. "Kind of reminds me when I first met that other actor dog."
"Uh, other actor dog?" Thunderbolt asked. "Who was it, if I may ask?"
"I forget, but I remember he went by Thunder Mutt and tried to out show me, but I didn't mind him using his suit for good." Krypto said.
"Oh, yeah, I think I know who you mean now..." Thunderbolt replied. "He can be a bit of a drama queen... Though, I guess he could've been worse than Li'l Lightning."
"Yeah, he tried to get Thunderbolt out of the way so he would be the star of the show." Patch said.
"What ever happened to him anyway?" Krypto asked.
"We're not sure, but he's not in Hollywood anymore," Thunderbolt replied. "He just disappeared with that devil woman and her goons."
"I think he was sent to the pound." Patch said.
"Sounds about right," Thunderbolt replied. "And, unlike you and your brothers and sisters, he deserves it."
"I was never too crazy about that little dog," Krypto said before mumbling under his breath. "Not even Kevin's sister, and she's like two and a half," He soon heard a young boy's voice calling out for him with his super-hearing. "I gotta go." He then said.
"Aww..." Patch pouted.
"Sorry, but you should know, my work is never done," Kyrpto smiled. "Kevin needs me."
"All right, see you around, Krypto." Patch smiled.
"See you around." Krypto smiled back before flying off to the Whitney household.
"You won't believe who I got to meet." Patch smiled at Thunderbolt.
"Tell me more." Thunderbolt smiled back to Patch as they walked into the yard together to catch up.
Patch began to tell his older brother dog figure everything.
