Told by Grayson.
The China adventure was a lot of fun, but it was good to be back home, even to the pregnant ladies.
“Hey there baby Blue! Did you miss Gray-Gray?”
We laid out all the gifts and goodies we brought back for the girls. The kitchen was a bit of a mess. I don’t know what Mom and Jemma were up to — I guess they didn’t feel like cleaning.
“This one is quite a relic. Bit of polishing and it could look pretty sweet in our bedroom.”
“Hey Mom, this one’s ‘specially for you.”
Well I didn’t want to stick around for all the gift-giving, because guess what! I had a date with Tawnya!
It was a nice date with Tawyna, but it ended up kinda weird…
Tawnya: “Hey, thanks for going out with me, you must be tired on your first night back.”
“Naw. Well kinda, but it’s okay.”
“Let’s go get a coffee. It’ll perk you up real good!”
“Haha, true. Okay.”
To be honest, I didn’t really want to stay in this place, because I thought I just saw Traci inside.
“You know, uhh….”
“You’re really pretty.”
I don’t think it mattered that she was a full nine days younger than me. Love has no age limits, right?
“Thanks, Grayson. Shall we go, then?”
It was still raining when we got out of the coffee shop, but luckily we always had our umbrellas handy.
Her hair is so nice.
“I had a great time Tawnya. Um… there’s something I wanted to tell you…”
“Mmmmmph! Grayson, you’re kissing my hair!”
“Oh. Sorry, I didn’t realize I was so tall.”
And then, the weirdness.
I whispered: “Tawnya, do you feel like that guy is watching us…?”
“Yeah. And he looks like a vampire.”
A creeper vampire in a trench coat? It sounded like the guy Jemma was telling us about not too long ago.
“Um, Grayson, I gotta go okay? I’m getting my coat.”
“O-o-okay… be safe.”
Ohhhhh shit. Is he getting closer?
I walked forward a bit and cautiously turned my head to see what he was doing.
Ohhh my God… is he salivating thinking about my blood??
‘Just pretend he’s not there, Grayson, pretend he’s not there…’
I was kind of afraid for the other ladies coming out of the shop. But what could I do? I was just a kid.
As I was leaving I spotted Sunny. Oh, I hoped she would be okay!
Yes, I was still a kid then… but not too long after, it was my birthday!
Ah, just seems like a few months ago I was turning teen. Now I would join the ranks of the young adults!
Everyone was on hand to help me celebrate!
So how do I look?
“Mom! Your belly is in my way!”
“Jemma, you eat any more than one slice of my cake and I’ll smack ya.”
“Fine, be like that.”
Luckily she had her baby that night, not that I expected her to be any more pleasant after.
“Mmmm, cake for breakfast. A-ha, I got the last piece.”
(shirtless Grayson spam)
“Gonna see if Tawnya wants to come over.”
“Oh hey there little Jovanna, you’re still in this swing?”
Blue: “Nobody ever pays attenshun to meee!”
“So I’m YA now and you’re still a teen… but we can still hang out, right?”
