Who's yo mommy? (For [personal profile] nomorepantiesplz and [personal profile] mightiswright)

It wasn't often that her daddy used the "really really serious" voice. But that was the voice he used when he called her after school that day and told her he needed to talk to her at home, right away, the moment the bell rang.

Trucy wracked her brain for any reason why he might be so serious. She couldn't think of anything she'd done bad recently, and all her grades were good... so it couldn't be her. Maybe something bad had happened. What, she could hardly imagine.

Even cheerful little Trucy couldn't be very cheerful with a thing like that looming over her, though she did her best, smiling as she came in the door. Apollo was there too, and that really made her wonder what was going on. Maybe something had gone wrong with a case, or a client.

"Hi Daddy," she said, and hung up her school bag by the door. "Is everything okay?"

"Uh..." The question is so unexpected that Apollo can't answer for a moment, mentally scrambling for the right words. What could he say that wouldn't be entirely depressing? It's one of the few good reasons that Apollo rarely bothers to talk about his childhood, and now Mr. Wright had just suddenly put him on the spot.

"I don't know who gave it to me," he starts slowly, looking between the two of them. "I'm a foster kid, and it was left with me when I was really little. There's not much more to say about it."
