“So, there’s nothing wrong with her?”
“Not a thing. Maybe Daisy was once a regular wallaby, but we’ll never know for sure. The Rift’s alterations are retroactive. When something becomes changed, if the result is viable, those changes ripple backwards through time so that what a creature becomes is what it’s always been. As far as Daisy’s concerned, she’s never been anything else. It’s natural to her. She’s not broken, she doesn’t need fixing; she’s simply made an evolutionary leap to become a more advanced wallaby. Without such leaps, we’d still be amoebae.”
That actually made sense.
