We were in the park as usual…
We were learning about pirates in history. That’s when I realized it. My grandmother said that her dad, my great grandfather, had been a thief. So that means he probably had a lot of money hidden. I bet it’s hidden in this park.
This girl from class passed by…
Girl: “What ya doing?”
Girl: “Yeah, that’s weird… bye.”
I didn’t find anything. I’ll ask Aaron. His great grandfather worked with my great grandfather. He’s always talking about how he’s going to be a bank robber just like his great grandfather, so maybe he knows more.
Later that day…
We were hanging out at the monkey bars when I noticed it…
Poe was in one of his low moments.
I always keep an eye on my brother and sister, because they need me. I don’t mind. I’m happy to be there to cheer them up or pick them up if they fall down.
Dorian: “Feeling better?”
Poe: “I am, thanks.”
Dorian: “Wanna talk about it?”
Poe: “There’s nothing to talk about. Just depressed.”
I frowned. I can’t imagine what it’d feel like to just be sad for no reason. I can think of being sad cause I lost a fight or in a video game, but not just cause. I feel bad for my brother, so I gotta try to cheer him up more.
Dorian: “Hey Izzy!”
Dorian: “Wanna year a joke?”
I wiggled my eyebrows at Poe.
Dorian: “What do you get when you cross a vampire and a snowman?”
Izzy: “I don’t know!”
Dorian: “Frost bite!”
Izzy burst out into laughter and the corners of Poe’s mouth turned up in a faint smile.
Izzy flagged over another girl from school. She had the same depressed look about her. Her name was Brynn and she could use a few jokes too. I noticed Poe looking at her with a strange look. I guess it was like the looks I gave Miri.
Kai got sick…
Dorian: “Dad! I think Kai’s sick…”
Lorne: “He’s not usually blue…”
Dad took him to the vet and fixed him all up.
While the kids were at school…
The next month…
Fern: “Oh crap… I’m lame, I’m very late for a very important date.”
Fern: “Mr. Lorne, you still have it.”
Lorne: “Have what?”
Fern: “I think I’m pregnant.”
Lorne: “What… Oh Fern. This is great news.
The moment they realized they would have another toddler… existential crisis.
Lorne: “It’ll be nice to have another little one. Dorian is going to be starting high school soon.”
Fern: “We’re going to need to remodel the second floor for another kid.”
Lorne: “Oh fuck.”
Risky woohoo strikes again! Do you two even bother with contraceptives?
In other topics… Poe is so cute! Have you all noticed his little pointed ears? I have no idea why he has them, but I love it!
