Note from SweetPoyzin: This is just a short chapter to introduce you to our heiress and get to know her from her point-of-view. It’s also a nice little catch-up post since it’s been about 10 years since you’ve seen everyone!
And it’s raining again. It always rains in this stupid town.
Whatever. I think I’m supposed to like fill you in on shit -er- I mean stuff. Sorry. I’m kinda new to this job.
So Owen got married to this awesome artsy chick named Maureen but we just call her Mo. He met her at the high school here. She was literally the only girl with purple hair in the whole school if you can believe that.
Anyway, they’d been dating for a long time and then Owen decided to join the military. Mom nearly shit a brick — I mean she really freaked. But then Owen got called up for basic training and he and Mo had a super quick wedding in the chapel in town. It was a good idea because she’s totally preggers now.
Speaking of preggers, Aiden got married, too. Except we didn’t know until later. He spent time traveling after boarding school and college and he met Kari. Well, she got knocked up and then Aiden married her and brought her home to Mom who is mega-excited to be a grandma.
I think Dad almost exploded with joy or something because he spends about more of his time visiting with Kari’s belly than he does with Aiden or Kari herself. She’s super cool about it though. I guess she’s ok. I really don’t know her.
OH. And speaking of getting knocked up. Mom and Dad had another baby. Oops. I guess they thought that since they were both in their mid-40s that Mom wouldn’t get pregnant. I don’t know what they were thinking. In fact…they probably weren’t thinking at all.
Whatevz. So Annie was born and she’s kinda a snot. Like for real. She’s such a little diva. She’s a total brat. And I don’t mean that because she’s my little sister. She’s a real jerk.
The highlight of my life to date is learning to drive. Owen started teaching me before he left. So…that’s kinda it.
Uhm, I guess you might want to know more about me. I’m a straight-A student and captain of the soccer team and president of the art and chess clubs. I don’t have a boyfriend. I have a part-time job. The only really rebellious thing I’ve done is get my nose pierced. Dad is certain it will keep me out of medical school. I think it’s cute.
For some reason Mom chose me to be her heir or whatever. I don’t know why since I’m clearly an afterthought. The house is full of pictures of Owen and Aiden and yet I’m the one Mom chose. All I want is a date to prom but instead I’ve got to figure out how to lead a legacy.
