Hey everyone! I know, it’s been pretty quiet in here. Things will pick back up soon. Right now I’m enjoying playing through toddler stage Cristal with Dorian finishing up his degree. Cute stuff… I’ll share pictures soon.
But on to the meat and potatoes of this post… I have completed the sketch cards of each one of the generations so far.
Years of work were finally reaching their culmination…
Orion watched the final ingredient swirl and dissolve in the boiling cauldron. The smell of the liquid contained was sharp and astringent. The color less appetizing than an expired gas station egg sandwich. The potion was done though and it was right.
Most of Ashlynn and Orion’s days were raising their four children…
No words, just lots of cute pictures of raising kids…
The time had come for Orion and Ashlynn to face the music and the candles… Welcome to their adult birthday.
Ashlynn: “Yay! Happy Birthday Orion!”
An unreasonably short time after Charlotte was born…
Ashlynn: “I know it’s a little soon, but…”
Time ticked on. The loss of Anita and Aiden made a huge hole in Ashlynn and Orion’s lives. Ashlynn couldn’t remember the last time she had the drive to act and Orion’s writing was pathetic at best.
They were both in their thirties now and time was slipping by them. Where had their time gone? What had they done?
Orion and Ashlynn were over at the big house to watch a movie with the family. It was a sci-fi flick and most the family thought it was lame.
Brennen: “Grandma, grandma! Wanna play void critters with me?”
Anita: “Sure. This movie is awful. I can’t believe you rented this, Aiden.”
Aiden: “Awh come on, you love bad cheesy things.”
Anita: “No, you’re the only bad cheesy thing I love.”
Aiden chuckled with a smile.
Anita stood up and gave Aiden a peck kiss on the cheek before moving over to meet Brennen.
Life was quiet after the announcement. Ashlynn and Orion were the final stages of finding the cure to Ashlynn’s curse.
Ashlynn scratched her cheek. God damn magic was complicated. A knock at the door interrupted her mental complaints.
Big news came less than a year after the wedding. It had nothing to do with babies, but it did have a lot to do with new beginnings.
Anita was proud that her life’s goal was finally off the ground. She had so much to be proud of really. She had a wonderful family that would guide and care for Willow Creek. A supportive husband that was there through thick and thin. And now… now she had something tangible to leave for future generations, a park.
They celebrated the opening of the park with a kava party. Anita has just recently discovered the kava root. It was a sweet tuber that could be ground up into a decadent drink. The whole family agreed it was perfect for the party.
