Fawn couldn’t go to Gem’s party, since she was busy at her own. Fairies are supposed to age up outside, under the sky to be one with nature. She’d been so hoping her wings would finally appear now that she was a teenager, but again she was given nothing but disappointment. Her mother, Dahlia tried assuring her not all fairies were given magic, and it didn’t make her a failure but Fawn new otherwise. Her parents were fairies, her siblings were fairies, why wasn’t she? What had she done wrong?
Trinity’s a brilliant little girl. She picks up on the smallest of hints, and has a mind far ahead of her years. She’s the first to inform Coral that Gem is unhappy. Trinity saw him crying and when she hugged him he pretended nothing was wrong.
Coral calms Trinity down, promising that Gem was just worried about school. There’s nothing wrong and she doesn’t have to watch over her older brother.
Gem’s been spending a lot of time on the computer lately, both at home and at school. He finally has a name, Danika, and his father’s words just make the need to see her face even stronger. There has to be another side to this story. No sane woman would want to kill her child!
Comedy interlude: Nico being attacked by bees... made my day <3.
Back to the story: Getting nowhere with his look into his family’s past, Gem decides to focus on teen matters... like prom. According to Sophie its coming up fast!
She’s hoping one of the jocks will ask her out, or even Gator. He may be a mean jerk face, but he’s currently head of the football team!
A jock Gem is not. He’s naturally book smart, but that’s about it. He isn’t artistic like Coral, he isn’t magical like aunt Jade or her twins, and even his dad is strong enough to lift a car. Gem... is just Gem. He’s pretty. That’s his only card.
Sophie wants to play hopscotch (and pose for Watcher). Gem hates hopscotch but agrees to a game to appease her.
Shit. Stepped on the rock.
Failure in front of the richest girl at school... smooth, Gem, real smooth.
He decides to at least test his chances. Maybe no one’s asked her to go to prom yet. Maybe she’s just being coy!
(Stop posing Sophie! Seriously... stop. I already took your picture!)
Flowers. Work every time.
“So uh... has anyone asked you to prom yet?” He asks.
She smiles coyly. “A few... haven’t said yes though. Why do you ask?”
He puts on his most charming smile, purple eyes shining. “I ask because I was hoping you’d go with me.”
Sophie almost swoons. Finally! She was starting to fear he wouldn’t ask her! “You’re the guy I was holding out for Gem, I can’t wait.”
She sighs as he hugs her. Truth be told, her first choice was Gator Wolff, but he’d told her her makeup made her look like she had two black eyes! What an asshat.
He pulls away slightly, ready to head home now that curfew is approaching. “Hey Sophie?”
“... Is everything okay at home?”
“Of course it is! Why?”
“Well your eyes sort of look like... uh... like you got into a fight.”
Nico’s son? Definitely.
I need to make these chapters longer if I'm ever going to get anything done.
Sophie would make a great celebrity-wanna be... too bad for her I looked at my game and decided I did not want celebrities so I re-rolled Gen Goal.
Gen 6 Roll:
Gen Goal: Hobby/Obsession
Misc Fun: Fashion Diva
Also: Sophie cracks me up. Every time I move the camera towards her I swear she drops everything in her cue and does that fairy idle pose. xD
