spring fever

april 2032
Principal: Bekah Grimsley
Teachers: Simon Millett and Rosabella Steinman
STUDENT ENROLLMENT

Everyone is struggling to maintain their drive and focus with the promise of summer freedom fragrancing the spring air. Romance also seems to be mingling in the air as well, which makes extra work for the teachers. Rosabella Steinman is covering for Brooklyn while she’s on maternity leave, and she’s rather soft since she just covered for Miriam in the fall, but she taught kindergartners which are less prone to making out.

Bekah knows far too much about the couples in her school, and she happened to see Chaz moving on after Cicely broke up with him this past winter.

Oddly, she saw Cicely smile, as if she were happy for Chaz and Lizzie with their new-found romance. It made Bekah respect the young girl more, seeing the maturity of wanting her ex to be happy.

Luca Browning (36 years), Nadia (35 years), Kai (15 years), Mavis (8 years), Clio (4 years), Thea (4 years)

Kai is learning to drive with his permit, just as a winter storm moves in. Luca insists he will be fine, and that he needs the practice in inclement weather. Nadia didn’t feel as confident being a passenger, so she gladly allowed Luca to take the reins.

When they get back, Thea and Clio are outside playing in the snow.

finding a new way

Miriam (47 years), Quint (40 years), Shira (14 years), Asher (14 years), Elodie (14 years), Wyatt (11 years), Tyson (9 years)

Shira and Wyatt have the most difficult time adjusting to the new house and step-family. As much as Shira enjoyed her new sister, Elodie, sometimes she wanted peace and quiet. Asher never grated her nerves the way Elodie could without doing anything in particular; she wasn’t sure if it was a twin thing or an Elodie thing.

She talked during movies too, they both loved reading and movies, and Elodie talked through them entirely. How could one enjoy a film if you prattled on the entire time?

september 2030 birthdays

Logan and Kai celebrate their birthday this month. They walk home from school, and empathize with eachother about their crazy sisters. Logan always wins the most pity with Mallory; she’s been throwing more tantrums than ever since their Mom got married.

Logan doesn’t think it’d be bad if his Mom had another baby, but Mallory swears she’ll run away if she does. Kai doesn’t even know what to say, he’s always been happy with his little sisters, and loved his step Dad Luca too.

Luca (34 years), Nadia (33 years), Kai (13 years), Mavis (6 years), Thea (2 years), Clio (2 years)

The last few years had brought a great deal of chaos to the Browning household. Nadia’s bookstore would celebrate its fourth anniversary in May, and it finally seemed to be making a steady income. They weren’t going to retire like a Rockfeller this lifetime, but it was enough.

Kai had started working part-time, mostly the weekends. His Mom didn’t mind if his friends stopped by as long as they weren’t rowdy. Books were a shared passion for Kai and his Mom, and he didn’t mind helping out; it didn’t hurt that it gave him an income to spend on more books.
