4.14 Gremlins, Elves, Goblins And Trolls
Gremlin? No, that wasn't it... Elf? No, it definately began with a 'G'...
She'd have to do some research, see if she could find him online. Why this thought hadn't occured to her during her pregnancy, she had no idea, but she decided she'd look him up soon. If she couldn't find his personal details, maybe it would at least say what lifestate he was.
"Morning-" Shaena started. "...Ish..." she finished. It was nearly midday, so although it was technically morning, it didn't seem right to be greeting people with a 'good morning'.
"Hey, chick, you sleep ok?" Kaity asked, still playing with the newborn in her arms.
"Aren't goblins green?" Shaena asked.
"I dunno, maybe it was a troll or something, I dunno. Whatever he was, he is. So that means Winter is the father."
"I didn't know you had any doubts...?" Shaena half asked, looking at her friend.
"You know me, Shae. There was always going to be doubt."
"Don't prune up!" Kaity shouted after her.
"I know how to have a bath, Kait." Shaena retorted, all jokingly, of course.
Kaity went back to trying to remember the name of the tribe Winter had mentioned.
Swallowing her nerves, she approached the man, against her body's instincts.
"No. Nope, sorry. She hasn't got time for interviews, and you shouldn't be talking to me. You know what trouble you could get in if I called my Granny." she threatened. The man just looked confused.
"Oh. An autograph, right?" Jaydean scratched her head. He didn't look like a crazy fan, but he didn't look much like a reporter, either.
"Then why are you here?" Jaydean hadn't quite got the idea that if she let people finish their sentances, she wouldn't have to ask as many questions.
"...What?" She squeaked.
"Who's Autumn?" She'd recognise that voice anywhere. Silky smooth, a gentle city accent, and the ability to turn her spine to jelly.
Autumns traits: Grumpy and Clumsy.
I didn't get to choose. Apparently Kaity didn't have a happy pregnancy.
Also, writing this chapter made me lol. It was Kaity not even having the decency to remember what lifestate Winter was. One-track-mind for sure.
