Chapter 3.1 The Start of Something Awesome

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​ ​Dad​dy ​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​ ​look​ed ​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​ ​day​s ​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!!

  1. Aaah, Lincoln!! ❤ He seems like a cool kid, and he's such a cutiepie! I think I kind of picked up on a couple of his traits too (definitely virtuoso and maybe equestrian?)..!
    He seems like a great heir! Can't wait to see what you have in store for him and the girls! 😀 ❤

    1. His traits are listed under the Generation 3 chapter page. He is definitely a virtuoso (or virtual lasso as Autumn called it).
      Lincoln is a total cutie pie, and he knows it.
      Thank you for being the first comment for Generation 3!! 🙂

  2. Isn’t the beginning of this generation JUST AWESOME? 😀
    Lincoln is such a fun kid, though it’s a bit worrying how he though ER was cool and hurt people were cool, too. Boys his age!
    Forming bands and the monsters remind me of Noah. Maybe he’s influencing this story, too 😛
    It’s nice you decided to join in the first person squad. It is lots of fun, though I never write as children.
    Don’t moms always spoil the fun?!

    1. Yes, there is nothing Moms love to do more than spoil the fun!!
      And I was hoping everyone would think that Generation 3 is going to be awesome.
      Writing in first person is better suited for Lincoln. And writing as a kid has given me a chance to show off my immature side. 😝

  3. Lincoln is such a sweetheart 😀 And Willow is sooo cute. I take it there’s going to be music and horse riding in this generation, so there should be plenty to look forward to! I can’t wait! ❤

    1. Lincoln takes his role as older brother very seriously, and is very protective of his sisters.
      Music will for sure be a big part of this generation. Being a virtuoso is what makes Lincoln so awesome 😎
      Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. 😁

  4. Virtual lasso! That was great! Lincoln is definitely a handful! Poor Stella. Thank goodness she has her extended family there to help her out. So they adopted Willow because she didn’t want to go through another pregnancy since she had such bad post partum depression?

    Can’t wait to see what troubles Lincoln gets into!

    1. Stella didn’t want to go through another pregnancy because of the depression, but also her own experience. She was “adopted” by April, May, & June. But many kids are not that lucky, and most of them get lost in the foster care system. So, adoption is something very close to Stella.
      Lincoln is a handful, and he knows it. 🙂
      thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. You are just too kind.

  5. “virtual​ ​lasso” that is adorable, haha. Sounds like he is though, got an ear for music that one. I bet he’s also excitable too, huh? It definitely comes across that way 😛
    I’m excited for our cheerful new heir! I wonder what adventures his life will have.

    1. That virtual lasso line came thanks to my stupid auto correct on my phone. i was on my run and taking notes on my phone. i miss spelled virtuoso and auto correct changed it to virtual lasso.
      He is very excited and proud to be the heir. he is adorable, and he knows it.
      Thanks for commenting. 🙂
