In an attempt to instill some sense of responsibility, I’ve decided all teens in my house will have a teen job, hoping that my siblings don’t turn out like Aiden-who has confirmed he’s working for the local criminal ring. I hope I can talk some sense into him!
Alison had her prom, she insisted she didn’t want to go but I told her she should go, not miss any of her senior memories.
My baby sister has grown into a beautiful young woman. She celebrated her birthday just days after her prom, and not wanting to burden me found a place of her own where she could live while going for her goal of a Rock Star-really I think she just thought it’d be better for the image to not live with her siblings.
I meanwhile went on a date with Eridan. We spent some time at the park, just talking. Then I decided to tell ghost stories. People, including Mr. Powerful Wizard, are chickens in this town!
It was after I finished my story that he pulled me aside. Apparently, with the full moon the next day tensions were high. He didn’t tell me why, just to wait and see.
I love the moon, even if the people of this town worry about it. Afterall, what could be wrong?
Eventually we talked about moving in together after Brandon moved out. I wouldn’t have minded if he stayed,but well he took after mom and Alison in the music department and wanted to make the big stage-without his older sister watching him all the time
He had his prom much earlier than usual, due to some changes in school management. Meanwhile I was dealing with some problems of my own. Such as, Eridan and I weren’t quite as careful as we thought. I really didn’t want to take time off of work so close to achieving my dream but well military work isn’t a good thing as an expectant mother. Nor is finding out your boyfriend is in a political marriage. Really? That was their solution to the feud? Marry off the Fae “princess” to the Leader of the Wizarding World?! I’m not sure how to deal with the relationship, but Eridan’s wife asked to meet me and well, the stories warn against pissing off the fae.
So I went and spoke to her, careful to arrive when I knew Eridan wouldn’t be home.
Much as I tried to hate her she seemed okay and she was thrilled about the baby. Not that I plan on spending much time there, marrige for the peace or not. What are we, in the middle ages?
Four children causes a lot of busyness. Dev and I barely have had time for our hobbies and they have become our source of income!
Aiden celebrated a birthday, it was just a small family affair.
Not long after, Alison followed, with my eyes and Dev’s hair color.
We had visitors during the night. Looks like mom and dad are still happy together, even in the afterlife.
Devon’s been playing with his time machine again.
Soon, out came someone from an alternate time. It turns out, in an alternate reality set in the Medieval ages Dev and I have a daughter, Catherine. We tried to get her back home, but it didn’t work. Thankfully she was able to adjust quickly to our time and grew to love it.
Brandon had a birthday and Catherine loved to read to him. Apparently, in her time she was the youngest.
She however, wanted nothing to do with potting training and left that to us parents 🙂
We also had some other birthdays. Dev still looks great, I must say!
Catherine was thrilled when she discovered that in this time she could join the military. Women didn’t do that in her time. After some research she decided she wanted to join the air force and eventually become an astronaut. While she could sometimes be very proper she was also glad for the changes and started running to prepare.
I also celebrated a birthday. I can’t believe I’m old!
Cypress broke the news to me when I returned from my day of playing the guitar in the park. I’d made a good amount of tips and couldn’t imagine letting others determine how my talent went out so I decided to form a band and put on shows around town. I’d asked my siblings to join the Thornes and they did. When I walked in the door and saw the somber looks I knew it had to be bad. I broke down in Cy’s arms as Devon was talking to the emergency technicians who I’d just beaten there.
My party was planned for just days after the funeral and the day before the wedding. We decided to keep the plans, knowing how excited dad was for the wedding. My sister decided to contribute to the festivities by spraying me with nectar.
Turns out, she had a little too much of it. As the party was winding down most of the guests either made themselves comfortable in the bunk bed or called a taxi home. My sister, on the other hand visited mom’s garden and settled against a fence. When I went to check on her I found her fast asleep. She’ll kill me for posting this, because it’s so unlike her!
My husband to be was late to our wedding!
With good reason though, through his experiments he was able to bring Dad back, if only for the wedding. It was the best gift anyone could ask for! The woman next to Dad is Lauren, Dev’s mom. His dad, Teddy sat next to Jas.
Cousin Starla was there, as was her father. Her father sat next to dad, aunt Izzy being too ill to make it. My brother’s were seated to the other side of Starla.
This is Devon giving me my ring. Look how gorgeous it and my engagement ring are!
And this is our first kiss as a married couple.
Dad stayed for our cutting of the cake, but after that he pulled us kids aside one by one to say good-bye. He assured us that mother and he are fine and that they will watch over us.
Dad retuned back to his urn after that and we made sure to carefully pack it and take it home with us to settle him next to mom in their old room.
