Erin is such a sweetheart! I want to hold her! :D I love, love, love that curly hair as well! You know, she even looks a lot like a real life kid I know. ;D Awesome update, Alex! I want more of that cuteness, lol.
Well, that's your opinion, isn't it? And I'm not about to waste my time trying to change it. - Lady GaGa

Thank you so much everybody.
I've been in hospital for a week, but I came out today. I'm feeling a bit more positive now, and am starting to feel like things can get better. It'll be a long process, but hopefully things will turn out okay.

I'll be putting another chapter up soon - thanks for your patience!

Soon our little girl was becoming a child. We didn’t have a party as, unlike my mother, I didn’t think it necessary for such a young child.




Erin was a clever little girl – her average grades were much higher than the other children’s, and the teachers all commented on her level of maturity being much more advanced.


In her free time, she liked to read any book she could get her hands on. She was a fast reader, pacing through multiple novels a day.


She also liked to write stories. Although she was only a child, she had already grasped the concept of humour, fantasy and even romance. She was indeed a very clever girl.
After writing her first novel, she told me that if there was one thing she could achieve in life, she’d like to one day become a famous author, and be making over $4,000 a week in book royalties.


She also loved making friends.
But it seemed no matter how hard I tried, I could not get her to make friends with other children her age. She said that they bore her, and she’d rather be in the presence of adults.
I had nothing to say to that – I didn’t even know that children knew what the word ‘presence’ meant, but she certainly used it in context.


And, like the rest of our family, she was very close to us all. She liked to stand by her Grandad Cameron as he sculpted, just to have a friendly chat with him. The two of them were best of friends.


I was very grateful that my baby girl got to spend time with her grandad. He was over 114 now, and we all knew time was precious, but having him see her grow up into such a talented young girl was certainly something we were all happy with.

We were also pleased that he lived to achieve his main goal in life. When Erin was born, he quit from the music industry so he could spend as much time as possible with his granddaughter while he was still around. At the time, he revaluated his life.
He’d once wanted to become a hit movie composer, but that job required lots of time away from family, spent alone and working. That wasn’t what he wanted in life.
Instead he decided that he’d rather just become a master of the arts; master painting and guitar.


Not only had he achieved his wish of mastering the arts, but he’d also attained his wish of living a long life with his family.
He truly did cherish the time he had with his granddaughter, and never wasted an opportunity to be with her.

I was very happy to see them bond; my daughter and my father.
To me, it symbolised how close we were as a family. We’d always be there for each other – through thick and thin.
We weren’t just family members. We were one.

I'm very happy to hear you're out of the hospital Alex and that the worst is over. I wish you all the best for your recovery, I hope it will be swift.

Back to the Moons: Erin doesn't only act mature, but she also looks very mature. I'm not sure if it's her hair, her clothing, or perhaps just her eyes and facial structure, but she looks much older than a child (except for her lenght of course)! I think it's wonderful she's already found a passion in life and I certainly hope she'll be a successful writer when she grows up!

Wonderful update as always!

I'm so glad your out of the hospital Alex. I hope you get well soon.

Erin is just so cute! I want to just pinch her cheeks and baby her to death (well not to death I guess), but close to it! Erin is just soooooooo adorable, and she better become immortal. You are doing great!

As the days crept towards my adult birthday, I was feeling very accomplished. I had been rising through the ranks of the political career with ease. It seemed my vision and ideas were popular among Sunset Valley. There was just one more step in my career, and it would prove to be the hardest: rising to become the leader of the Free World.

I was leaving the office one night, when someone whispered my name from the dark.
I followed the whisper, unable to see who was behind the voice.

“Take a seat,” they said quietly.
I felt suspicious, and rather nervous, but I couldn’t let the anxiety get to me. If I was to be the Leader of the Free World, I had to be brave. I had to be able to handle anything.


As if they read my mind, they spoke. “I know what you seek. I know what you need. Leader of the Free World. It's so close, but so far away.”
“I’m only one promotion off,” I said cautiously. I wasn't going to give into the doubts of strangers.
“A promotion that could take weeks. It could take months. It could take years. Think about it – think about your competition. They’re strong. They’ve been in that position for years, and they won’t give up without a fight, whether that is metaphorical or physical. They’ll do all they can to overthrow you.”

I thought about his words. I knew it was true – my opposition weren’t exactly the nicest people. If needed, they’d rather have me killed than lose to me.
“So what are you saying? What your point?” I asked.
“I have a proposition for you; a deal. It’s very simple. You see, I have power amongst these people. I know which strings to pull. I can get you far; you just need to do one thing for me,” the man said.
“Let’s hear it then,” I replied, curious as to what the proposition could involve. I knew as a politician, I needed to work things to my advantage to help move the people forward.
“Become enemies with Brianna Schoefield. Become enemies with her, and I’ll grant you what you wish – to be leader of the free world.”

I looked at the man, squinting to try and see any sort of expression on his face through the dark.
“You want me to become enemies with someone? What for? What would it prove?”
“I have my reasons. Will you do it?” he spoke.
“You can assure I will overthrow the current leader? I’ll be the true leader of the free world?” I asked, starting to feel the excitement rise up inside of me.
“You have my word.”
I stood up, and outstretched my hand. One tiny misfortune that would lead to a life of positives - it was an irresistible deal.

As I reached my hand out, a scream shattered the silence.
I fell to the ground. The scream was ripping right through my mind. Through my body. Through my soul.
I twisted and contorted on the floor, my own scream echoing alongside the other.
I was completely lost to the pain, reaching out, trying to grasp onto any sign of sanity. I begged for anyone, anything, to make it stop.

The feeling slowly started to fade. I looked toward the man. He was standing completely still, as though the scream and my fall were all ordinary.
I laid on the ground for a while, trying to get my bearings; trying to understand what was happening. I felt winded – like the scream had torn the life out of me.


I opened my eyes, ready to ask him what the scream was from, when the lights all flickered on.
I was alone.
There was no man in the room.


I got to my feet, wondering what had happened. The man had been there; I could have sworn.
But  there was no doubt – I was alone.

I grabbed my things, and shuffled towards the door. I tried to mask it, but I was terrified. Did it happen? Was I dreaming? Was I insane?
I hoped one of the first were true.

As I shook uncontrollably from the fear, I tried to bring myself to focus. One thing would prove to me whether it had happened or not: I needed to visit Brianna Schoefield.

As I approached the Shoefield house, apprehension settled over me. Hatefulness wasn’t in my nature; I couldn’t insult someone, let alone declare them a nemesis.

I took a deep breath to strengthen my resolve. It needed to be done. If it wasn’t, I’d risk the chance of never getting to the top of my career.
That wouldn’t be a problem for any normal person, but I wasn’t normal. If I didn’t make it to the top of my career, I’d be forsaking all the effort my family had put into saving Grandma Luna. I would be terribly ashamed to be the reason that four lifetimes of work came crashing down.
I wouldn’t allow their work to be for nothing. I wouldn’t risk leaving a family member in a world of torture.

I arrived at their house as the sun was starting to settle over the ocean. It was a beautiful view from here; calming.
I looked at the door. I had be ready for it. I had to do it.

I drew a breath in, steadied my posture and rang the doorbell. Brianna’s son Bruce invited me inside. I was glad that it wasn’t Brianna herself – I probably would have buckled under the pressure of being treated friendly.

I rounded the corner to find Brianna standing there. There was something about her eyes that I found unsettling. She seemed dazed; almost as though she was in a trance.

I called her name, and she snapped back to reality.
Before she could speak, I launched into my attack, hiding the emotional pain that it caused me to do this.
Luckily for me, Brianna was not one to be messed with. She started retorting back, hating me more and more by the minute.


She began to slap me, insisting that we fight. Inside I was panicking. My job was to make this lady my enemy, not to come out with a black eye and a broken leg.
I racked my brain for what to say. All I could do was blurt out that she wasn’t worth the fight; that I don’t fight with my enemies.
At that, she screamed in rage. She screamed that she’s always despised me. That she’s always seen me as an enemy.

She was about to start slapping me again, but I was too quick, running out of the house and around the corner.
I knew what she said about always despising me wasn’t true; we’d always been friendly to one another. But it did hurt me to have to inflict that much anger upon an innocent woman.
I began to wonder to myself if the argument was actually worth it – whether the scenario in the backroom of the City Hall had actually happened.

I waited for a few minutes, catching my breath from the run.
I wasn’t sure what to expect. All the man said was that I would be the Leader of the Free World.

I decided to not waste any more time to discover whether the event had been in my mind or not, and walked to the City Hall.
Upon entering, I spied the opposition leader – the current leader of the not-so-Free World.
He was signing paperwork at the main office.

I walked over to him cautiously. He turned as he heard me approaching.
“Ah! Mrs. Moon. Just the person I wished to see,” he said joyously.
I didn’t reply – the situation seemed too suspicious. He was never joyful – he was always set on the job, whether that be taking over Sunset Valley or killing off his opponents.
He continued casually, as though I’d replied to him. “I’ve just resigned. I feel as though it’s my time to retire - my time to lay back and enjoy life.”
“Retire? You… You’re…” I stammered. My eyes widened. He was retiring. I would be the Leader of the Free World.

Though he continued to talk, I didn't listen. I was stuck in my thoughts.
I had become enemies with Brianna Schoefield, and as the mysterious man had promised, I’d been made the Leader of the Free World.
I cut him off. “Thank you, I swear I’ll take this role seriously and improve the lives of all the people of Sunset Valley. If you’ll excuse me, I need to go now. I have some other things to attend to.”
He nodded. “You’ll find your new uniform in your new office. Goodbye, President Moon”.

As promised, I found my uniform in my new office. I left the City Hall, feeling completely alive. I’d done it. 
I’d become the leader of the free world.


I knew that it took more than my hard work – it took the hard work of someone else too. Someone that I didn’t know the name of. Someone that I didn’t know the look of. Someone of who there was no proof even existed.
I hoped that I would come across him again one day. I had so much to thank him for. But for now, I’d return home to share the good news with my loving family.

The day of my adult birthday came around quickly after I got the position of Leader of the Free World. I was excited to move forward in my life – I’d already gotten so far, and couldn’t wait to take my life even further ahead.

I blew out my candles as my friends and family cheered around me. Another day older, another day closer. That was how I saw it – with each passing day, I was getting closer and closer to becoming immortal. With each passing day I was getting closer and closer to saving Grandma Luna.


The next day was Erin’s birthday - time for her to become a teen. I was torn between two emotions: the one that screamed “Aww, no! My little girl is growing up!” and another that said “Well, she already acts more grown up than most adults I know.. I wonder what the world will hold for her”.
I guess it was just instinct versus curiosity.

She had requested just a small family party to be held indoors – so we bought her a cake, and celebrated as a family in our kitchen.
As she had been all her life, little Erin was much different to the others. But although she dressed differently, and did her hair different, she was still beautiful – especially to me.




When she was a child, she’d made friends with mainly adults, saying that she preferred their company to the company of children. Not much had changed when she became a teen – she still preferred to be around adults. She still refused to befriend teenagers, saying their maturity level was much too low to want to be associating with them.


She also dedicated a lot of her time to writing.
Grandma Callisto couldn’t remember how, but when she was much younger, she came across a device named a Moodlet Manager. With the press of a button, it would relieve your stress, your tiredness, or anything bad.
She decided that Erin was in much more need of it, and handed it to her granddaughter. Erin put it to good use, staying awake for days at a time just to write her books.



Unlike the rest of the family, Erin hadn’t found a teen love. She wasn’t interested in love at all, it seemed. She was much more interested in conversations about the hidden messages in Shakespeare pieces, or writing her books for hours at a time.

The fact that she hadn’t found love didn’t bother me at all – she was young, and she could definitely wait a while before she needed to find a husband. But that was the problem: one day, she would need to find a husband.
It worried me to think that she may wish to devote her time to her story writing rather than marry and have kids. It worried me deeply.
I wouldn’t ever force her to love, but if she didn’t eventually open up to people, she may risk all of our ancestors work. It scared me that centuries of work could be completely destroyed just because of the personal choice of another.

I looked over at my mum and dad - Lysithea and Cameron. I took a deep breath in. There was no rush. Mum hadn’t been dating Cameron since the day she hit young adult. She’d been with some nasty boy who couldn’t grow up and be a man.
It’d taken Mum a while to find true love, and move on with life.
I slouched into the chair, starting to feel more relaxed. I needn’t worry. Everything would work out. Everything would fall together in time.

Erin is really lovely, I love the combo of black and wine red, it's stunning! However her hair is even poofier, so I have to assume someone unlocked the volumizing shampoo cupboard LOL

I'm sure she'll find some love sonette writing fellow (knowing her probably older than she is) who will sweep her off her keyboard one day! LOL  ;D

Since I’d gotten my promotion to the Leader of the Free World, I’d been extremely busy. Amongst work and my home life, time was rushing by without a moment of rest.
It was hard to believe that the day of my daughter’s young adult birthday had already come along. It seemed only yesterday that she was a gorgeous chuckling toddler.

We had a party in the upstairs section of our house, as Erin hated the outdoors. As friends and family poured in, Erin’s excitement seemed to be rising.
I guessed that she was excited to finally be an adult after acting like one since her early days as a child.

She blew out her candles and aged up gracefully.



She turned into a beautiful young woman. Her look was much different to anyone in the family; different to anyone I knew. It suited her well – she was a stunning young adult.



As the party progressed, I started to realise why her excitement had mounted. Now that she was a young adult, she was free to date whoever she wished.
It struck me that this was the reason she hadn’t dated as a teen. It was so obvious, but I’d only just come to realise – she’d only ever been interested in adults, so maybe her sights had been set on someone much older than her.

I watched her chatting up a few local boys. Zeke Demarion, Lloyd Huggings and Jung Yee seemed to be the men she chatted to the most, but I just knew that there was one that had caught her attention more than others.




After the party had ended, and everyone had left, I walked past Erin’s room.
I didn’t mean to be nosey, but I noticed that she wasn’t alone. Someone was sleeping by her side.
I risked a peek, but couldn’t see who it was.


I decided to leave it for the time being. I knew my beautiful daughter would chose who was right for her. I knew that in time, she’d be ready to let us know. For now I’d let them sleep peacefully in each other’s arms.


________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Authors note: I was having a really hard time choosing between the three most eligible bachelors (especially seeing as Zeke and Jung look so alike), but then Erin got the wish to kiss and start going steady with one of the three - it made it so much easier to choose when I knew that it was her wish!
