‘Wouldn’t it be great if we could live forever together,’ Betsy said to Alan.
‘Why don’t we try!’ said Alan.

They wanted to bury it in the ground for their kids to dig up and clone them when they were older. They buried it under cow dung so that the humans would stay away.

They opened and they found a golden baby duckling. It had hatched from the golden egg. It had a Mohawk. The baby duckling was so cute, it made the aliens explode.
The baby duckling starts making funny noises like it’s looking for its mom. It used the alien technology to clone Betsy and Alan. The baby duck uses it’s crystal eyes to power the technology with a bold, gold smoulder and a bright blue flash from his intense blue eyes.
