Nobody likes playing dolls anymore. Not even Pearl. So Dorian swallows his pride and just plays by himself.
Nile’s always preferred being by himself, but it isn’t because he doesn’t like his family... just his twin sister.
Sometimes she can be downright hurtful.
“Really? Cooking? That’s like the most... un manly thing next to ballet! You’re supposed to be a genius! Like me! Pick up a book or something!”
Idiots or slackers! Kitten is SURROUNDED by them!
To say his sister’s words don’t cut at him would be a lie. He wishes they had a relationship like their older siblings do but that’s too much to ask for.
Maybe Kitten was switched at the hospital or something. That would have been awesome. Maybe his real twin sister is sweet and likes sweets just as much as he does. But that’s just wishful thinking.
Walt Jones is Pearl’s best friend from school.
He’s sweet, he’s funny, and totally boyfriend material. Now Pearl just has to be careful to not scare him off with wedding talk before they even reach high school.
Walt thinks Pearl’s crazier than his dad... but at least she shows interest in music. No one else in Walt’s family does (Well, cept his twin sister but she doesn’t count).
Corrine is Walt’s twin sister. Pearl doesn’t like her. She spends too much time with Rio trying to touch his hair.
Corrine is in art class with Rio, and she’s really good... he isn’t. So he practices a lot. He just wishes his sisters wouldn’t argue in the middle of HIS room.
Unlike Nile, Pearl just ignores Kitten’s remarks and rudeness and always has a smile on her face. It annoys Kitten to no end but the hugs are nice.
Dorian loves it when Nile cooks. His brownies are the best!
Kitten still thinks they suck.
She’d much prefer to tone her mental skills. Maybe one day she’ll become a doctor, or a scientist. Something special and amazing where all the attention will be on HER and her alone.
Corrine comes over a lot. Rio claims its cause she can’t resist his super awesome swagger.
Watcher is convince Corrine’s just a River fangirl. Her dad works as a criminal, so it isn’t that much of a stretch really.
Oh and for the record, Nile would just like you all to know that he finally managed to make perfect vanilla muffins. Kitten can go suck it (whatever that means).
Everyone has a muffin for dinner but Kitten. She grabs a sandwich from the fridge and it is GROSS. “Oh my goooosh, Nile did you make this too? It sucks! How can you screw up a sandwich?”
Dorian clears his throat. “Actually hunny, I made that sandwich.”
“... Oh.” Kitten’s face goes as red as her hair. “I think I’m just going to go to bed now.”
“Good idea, sweetie.”
Pearl and Rio are only one day away from being teens, and Kitten and Nile age up 4 days after... so I might end up doing the heir vote next chapter. I know you guys haven't had much time to get to know the characters, but I need to know my next heir early on for two of my plot lines, maybe even three of them.
