And… hello, what little readers I have (not that I don’t appreciate you guys; thanks so much for following 😛)! Today I am glad to announce that this chapter will be the epilogue to Generation One! Fern’s story has been a long haul -enjoyable to play, yes, but long- and the last five chapters have been a lot more about Ash. So I have decided, due to my impatient nature, that I am going to be a big fat cheater and simply age Briar and Ash up into young adults. They aren’t due for their birthdays for quite a while, but since Isla was supposed to age up a day ago, and it wouldn’t make sense for the twins to celebrate their 18th birthdays after Isla celebrates her 13th, I’ve finished Fern’s generation a little early. That means that the next chapter will be 2.1 and will bring Briar into the spotlight 🙂 Now lets get on with the story!
“ASH ASH ASH ASH WAKE UP YOU LAZY LUMP WAKE UP!” A loud voice breaks violently into Ash’s fitful sleep. Ash groans and turns over, faintly surprised to find himself on top of the sheets. Oh, thats right; he had been up till midnight yesterday to complete his homework, as most of the afternoon had been spent at the Landgraab Industries Science Laboratory.
Ash gives an enormous yawn and half-opens his eyes, glaring blearily at Briar.
“Can’t you see I’m trying to sleep here?” He mumbles, and covers his face in an attempt to block out Briar’s excited chatter.
“But today’s a very important day!” Briar explains, hopping around. “Guess what it is, guess!”
Ash, who is very sleepy, has no patience to deal with his twin sister (who is, for some reason, wearing her togs). “I don’t care, okay, just let me go back to sleep.”
Briar continues jumping up and down, plainly not listening to a word Ash is saying. “IT’S OUR 18TH BIRTHDAYS TODAY!” She squeals. “WE’RE OFFICIALLY GOING TO BE ADULTS!”
She waits for a response and gets a snore instead. “Alright, alright.” Briar says irritably, annoyed at her brother’s lack of interest at her news. “I came up here to tell you that the school bus is about to leave. I won’t bother holding it for you, shall I?” And with that, Briar marches out of the room.
That wakes Ash up.
