Katherine, the story's heroine, and her robotic Lab partner, Blip, have made an invention that links Albia to Earth, called the HoloDeck. After doing a trial on a Banana (Bald) norn named Jenna, they show a friend of theirs, Susan, what the HoloDeck can do. They transport Jenna into their world. The trio decides that Jenna must be hungry, and go to the kitchen to find some cheese. Katherine forgets to turn of the 'Deck, giving Jenna the oportunity to use the device. She imports a Purple mountian male named Jack. Katherine & her friends discover what she did this just as they KissPop. However, they can't put Jenna back into Albia, because the HoloDeck reacts with fetal fluids to make toxins strong enough to kill a pregnant female on import. With Blip's help, Katherine determines that Jenna is pregnant and that Jenna would lay her egg @ 1 am. Susan got permission to sleep over so she could help with the birth. The egg finaly is layed and hatches around 8 in the morning. It's a baby boy. He's almost completley purple mountian, except for his Banana legs. Blip discovers a mutation in Karr, that he got from his mother, alowing him to distinguish one norn from another. Katherine admits she altered Jenna, but diddn't think the genes would work, so she never told anyone. After teaching the baby, who is named "Karr" in honor of the Grenorn series, Jenna creates an accidental ruckus and Karr excapes to Katherine's room. There, he finds the HoloDeck and imports a Grendel into their world.
And so it goes...
"Katherine! I thought you left the 'Deck off this time!" Blip fussed.
"I did... I really did! Karr must've tripped over the switch or something..." Katherine argued.
The Grendel was totaly confued. He had never seen this part of the world before! And lo, a baby norn, fresh for the beating! Confusion turned to joy as he edged closer to Karr.
Jenna saw what was happening and jumped infront of Karr. "No!" she shouted, and gave the Grendel a big smack. The Grendel shouted in pain.
"Katherine," whispered Susan, "are you positive those genes didn't work?" Katherine stood by awestruck. Her experement wasn't a total waste afterall! Jenna was showing signs of real maternal instints.
"grah oooogh" said the Grendel. Was he going to let a wussy little norn beat the tar out of him? He was made to be strong, while the norns had simply been bred to be cute! He punched Jenna. Jenna cried out in pain and raised on her haunches. This made her really mad. There was no way she was going to let him hurt her son. She smacked him so hard, she fell over. So did the Grendel. The Grendel decided this was too much trouble just for an easy smack on a baby norn, so he ran out of the room. Jenna gave a giggle.
"Push yes grendel" she shouted triumphantly. "Grendel run norn"
"Is it me," commented Blip, "or is this not a good sign of things to come?"
"Who cares!" Katherine spasticly said. "That Grendel is loose in our house and we have to find him."
"Oooh, that's right." Susan replied.
Meanwhile, the Grendel had wandered into the kitchen. He took a quick look around, and, seeing no norns, decided that he might as well explore. He found a table, much like the one in the kitchen in the hatchery. There, on the table, were a few small bottles. He picked one up, opened it, and took a drink. It tasted a little like hootch, only different. He took several more drinks, and started to feel really good! As he was (trying) to walk accross the floor, Someone else came in. It was Katherine's mom, but the grendel didn't know that. He stood, looking at her. Would she hurt him? No, she didn't hurt him. But she did make a very loud noise.
"Is he in there?" Asked Blip. He and Karr were standing outside the bathroom.
"Nope." answered Susan. "No sign of the grendel."
Then they heard Katherine's mom shout. "KATHERINE! I WANT YOU RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!"
Katherine poked her head out. "I think we found him" she said. Everyone got out of the bathroom and filed into the kitchen.
Katherine's mom pointed to the Grendel. "What is that thing, and why is he drinking my bourbon? I was going to make bourbon balls with it!"
"Th-that's a Grendel, it's from Creatures." Katherine stuttered.
"HOW did it get in MY kitchen?" demanded Katherine's mom.
"M-My latest invention brought it here accidently. I-It's called the HoloDeck, and it links Creatures to earth, so we can play with norns here...." Katherine explained. But she knew this was not going to go well.
Katherine's mom looked at Blip, then Susan, then Katherine. (Luckily, she didn't catch Jenna or Karr, because they were hiding behind Katherine.) Then she calmly stated. "Get that grondel, or whatever you called it, OUT of my ktichen. Then come back here."
Katherine and Susan picked the Grendel up (It was so drunk, it didn't mind.) and carried it to her room, silently. They then placed it on the HoloDeck, and beamed it to Albia. Then, they locked the norns inside Katherine's room and marched into the kitchen once more, awaiting their fate.
When they got there, they overheard Katherine's mom on the phone. "Right, 111, Firebrook road. Patient's name, Katherine Riggs. Reason? Creatures Addict. You handle those cases, right? You've done plenty of them? Good. G'bye." Then Katherine's mom walked into the kitchen. "Katherine," she said, "I hate to do this, but you leave me no choice. You need to get over Creatures! I called the insane asylum. They're comming over to pick you up."
Katherine didn't believe what she heard. "You-YOU'RE SENDING ME TO THE FUNNY FARM?" She shouted.
