This is a pretty uneventful chapter, but I think that it is a great way to introduce Lincoln as the Generation 3 Heir. As much as I am going to miss writing for Stella I am excited to show you all what I have planned for Generation 3. Speaking of my writing, for this generation I have decided that I am going to switch to the first-person narrative, but it certainly fits Lincoln’s personality.
I, Lincoln James Charming, am awesome! There is no other way to put it. It is that simple; I have the best life ever. With the most awesome family ever, in the most awesomest house ever.
All awesome things are happening at once. My twin and I aged up, and for our birthday we got the most awesomest gift; a horse. Autumn is scared of him, but I love my new pet.
“Don’t you think that they are too young to be riding horses?” Mom asked our Grandpa. She is always trying to ruin my fun, but Gramps is cool. He has my back.
“Nonsense,” he replied as he gave me a treat to feed to my new pet. “I was younger than them when I first started riding. And taking care of a horse is a great way to teach them discipline and responsibility.”
Since Autumn won’t go near the horse I got to name him, and picked the name Thor!! I was not looking forward to cleaning up after Thor, but having a horse is still going to be awesome!!
Thor isn’t the only new addition to our family. A few months ago Mom and Dad told Autumn and me that we will be getting a new sister. Her name is Willow and she comes from a different country.
At first I was not very excited. I already have a sister. Why would I want another one?! But the more I thought about it I realized that having another sister might be cool. Autumn is not as fun to play with anymore like she used to be. She wants to spend all of her time reading her books, while I like playing in the tree house or at the park. Maybe my new sister will want to play with me.
When we finally got her, I was surprised to see that she was just a toddler. But we still play together. I like taking Willow out to the park. Our favorite game is to play Knight and Princess. But Mommy was mad at me for taking Willow on a horse ride with me. Although Grandpa was watching us, Mommy was still mad at me (although she was mad at Gramps too). I told you she always wants to ruin my fun!
Did I mention how much Mommy likes to spoil my fun?! Of course I love my Mommy. She works at the hospital, which is like the coolest place ever. She took Autumn and me to work with her once. It was so cool. Autumn liked the Science Room with all the different lab stuff. But I liked the ER. Aunt Sarah was there too and I got see someone with a broken leg. It was all gross and bloody, and the guy was screaming in pain. It was SO COOL!!
What was I talking about before? Oh yeah, usually Mommy spoils my fun. She tells me to get off the dining room chairs, because we are about to eat dinner.
“But I am the King!” I announced. “And I hereby proclaim that broccoli is banished from this kingdom!”
“Alright Your Highness,” Mom laughed. “Go wash your royal hands in the royal washroom.”
Even though she tries to ruin my fun, I can always make her laugh.
But today was different. Autumn and I got some extra money for raking the leaves and for cleaning Thor’s stable. We couldn’t wait to go spend it at the toy store. I wanted to go to the pet store, but Daddy said that one horse, two dogs, and a cat are enough. Autumn picked out a chemistry set. I told you she is really into that science stuff. I had a harder time picking out a toy. Grandma said that I should save my money for something big later, but where is the fun in that?
I walked up and down the different aisles, but nothing looked good enough. Then I saw it; the coolest toy on this earth, a drum set!!
I totally thought that Mommy would say no, like she does all the time, but this time she said yes. She even helped me pick out the exact one I wanted with a cool llama on the front. As soon as we got home I started playing.
Everyone was saying how good of a drummer I am. Even Aunt April, Aunt May, and Aunt June said that I was a natural talent. Pretty soon I got the idea to form a band; Lincoln Charming and the Little Ones. Willow was playing on her toy piano, and our cat Mittens was our singer.
And the days only got more awesome from there. One night Autumn told me something really cool.
“I heard Mommy and Daddy talking about you,” Autumn told me as we sat on my bed.
Autumn has her own room, but sometimes the monsters in her closet scare her so she sleeps in my room with me to protect her.
“They didn’t think that I could hear them,” Autumn said. “And they said that you might be some kind of virtual lasso, and that you should take music lessons.”
I didn’t know what being a virtual lasso had to do with me playing the drums, or what a virtual lasso even is. Either way, I was proud that Mommy and Daddy were proud of me. Gramps even told me how impressed he was at how quickly I learned a song that I heard on the radio. He is always listening to the radio, and he liked how I was able to drum along with the song even only hearing it for a little bit. And Gramps doesn’t listen to any old type of music. He likes Rock & Roll!! I told you he is cool!!
