Nebula: I ended up waking up before anyone else today, except Meteor, but he’s usually sleeping.
Galaxy: That’s because we were up late so we could meet grandpa Cason late night.
Nebula: Did you meet him?
Galaxy: Yes. He laughed at all my jokes. But we didn’t sleep in that late. It’s not like we had school.
Nebula: It felt like forever. I wanted to meet the new neighbor kids.
Galaxy: We all did. Although you spent most of the time talking to their mom.
Nebula: Caretaker. Ms. Martha’s cool, plus I figured if she like us, she’d be more willing to let everyone come over from time to time.
Nova: I’m glad you invited Cocoa to come with us. I haven’t seen him since I started school.
Nebula: Oh yeah, where’d he run off to? I don’t remember seeing him after we arrived.
Galaxy: Upstairs, I saw him on the computer with Chase playing blickblock. Speaking of Chase….
Nebula: Oh no, he’s a friend. I don’t like him that way.
Galaxy: Oh? You perfer Jaxon? Isn’t he… a bit odd?
Nova: He’s a hot dog boy!
Nebula: Shut up you two. It’s not like that. Plus you invited him over later that afternoon.
Nova: I invited everyone I’d met.
Galaxy: So are you and Anika best friends now?
Nova: Best friends forever. We’re going to make a waterfall at school on Monday. And unlike some sisters I could name, we’ve figured out how not to get caught.
Nebula: Unlike your aborted food fight?
Nova: I didn’t expect the hall monitor to be behind me. You two could have said something instead of laughing.
Galaxy: Your face was priceless. We’ll I’ve got to go upstairs and start practicing if I’m going to get this third badge in the next two days.
Nebula: Ask dad to help, he’s an artist already so he probably has some good pointers. I’ll be outside, Chase and I want to get the scamp badge before the week’s out.
Nova: Hey, don’t leave me with Meteor? What if he starts crying?
Galaxy: Tickle his toes, he like that.
Nova: Hmph. Hurry up and grow up, bro. I need backup with those two.
