Those Blasted Ainysians! (StoryADay)

“I blame my no-good idiotic great-uncle Branislav for this,” Sean snarled as a nurse asked him about the bump in his belly. His sisters Shannon and Joanna rushed him to the hospital upon hearing him scream as he fell down the stairs. (Thankfully, his children Evolet, Jaden, Candice, and Justin weren’t at home when the fall happened.)

“What are you talking about?” said the nurse.

“According to my father, my grandfather’s brother Bran was gay and he often fought with his family because of his homosexuality,” said Sean. “In fact, Bran used an ancient Ainysian spell to conceive children; that spell was banned when daughters started being born and Ainysian men started marrying those daughters.”

“And what is that Ainysian spell, I wonder,” said the nurse.

“Well, while I can’t tell you everything, I will say that when our ancestors were first formed, they came from gay couples,” said Sean. “The Atlantean gods were furious when they found that out and they sought to destroy the Ainysians. But several Ainysian families escaped from that destruction and came to Earth, hoping to begin a new life. Also, the younger Ainysians began practicing marriage, which they were influenced by what they saw earth couples doing, so there was no need for that spell.”

“And your great-uncle?” said the nurse. “What did he do?”

“Oh, he ruined nearly 3,000 years of abstainity when he used that spell to conceive children,” said Sean. “Now his stupidity has affected my father and me, as we both went through the same thing. But I know I’m not gay, so why is this happening to me?”

The nurse stared at him with a confused look on her face.

The New Computer (StoryADay)

When I saw the first computer, my life changed forever.

For many years, I was content to use a notebook and a pen to write, but my mom often read my stories and complained about my poor handwriting. She told me to take a typing class, but I laughed at her. To me, using the typewriter was a waste of time, time I could use to practice my cursive writing.

Yet when my dad showed me the computer he had brought, I was surprised, knowing that he had brought that computer for me to write my stories. I knew I had no choice but to take that typing class.

An Old Rivalry (StoryADay)

“Wow, you must really hate Mackenzie,” Fabian said to Shara as he noticed her glaring at the other girl. Shara was sure Mackenzie wasn’t serious, not if she had anything to say about that.

Of course, Fabian didn’t know that Shara knew Mackenzie before they both became students at Harrison Creek High School. Back then, Shara knew Mackenzie as Denise Tillman when they were living in San Francisco; Shara was 10 years old and Denise was 12. Denise was a troublemaker while Shara was a good student. Denise was also a bully, as she bullied one of Shara’s friends, Christina McAllen, for being disabled.

“Well, you can say I knew her a long time ago,” said Shara. “But I don’t like her, not where it counts.”

“Whatever,” said Fabian, not knowing that the truth about about to come out…

What if Juniper Explained Everything (StoryaDay Post)

What if I told you that I did have another choice when I was so seeped in my own fantasy world?

they say that kids grow up differently, but let’s not forget that kids who survived traumatizing events don’t grow up as well as their non-abused peers. I don’t know what that means yet, but I knew that i was completely different from the other kids, and this is why.

But that didn’t mean I had to stay that way.

After English class, I walked towards the front office instead of the library, as I wanted to avoid the librarian and her criticism. She was angry with me for choosing the read the Trees of Light as opposed to some silly teen novel, but what did she know? She didn’t have an abusive childhood like I did. She didn’t have people trying to “help” her with her “problems”. I mean, the people trying to “help” me really don’t like me at all, or they would have done something about it.

Just as I passed the library, the librarian said, “Juniper, we need to have a talk.” I tensed, knowing that like it or not, my unmentionable secret of being beaten up by the school bully was about to come out…

Juniper’s Journal (StoryADay)

Before the story begins, Juniper writes the following things in her diary…

“I have been obsessed with D. B. Painter’s “The Trees of Light” Trilogy since I was 8 years old. But I’m hardly the only person in the world to be obsessed with those books, as most kids my age loved those books when they were younger. But why is it that when you become a teenager, everyone expects you to read (and like) teen novels?

“That’s not me. That person who reads teen novels will NEVER be me!

“But what most people don’t know is that I am obsessed with “The Trees of Light” for a reason. They don’t know that when I was 8 years old, the school bully savagely beat me up because I was reading books in the library during recess instead of playing on the playground like the other kids, where he could see me and beat me up. I ended up in the hospital for several months; most of them were spent in a coma. The doctors weren’t sure if I was going to live or die.

“Well, I lived, but due to the beating, I suffered some irreversible brain damage. Meaning I couldn’t grow up properly.

“The other kids made fun of me for being childish and not acting or dressing my age. (I’m still wearing pigtails at age 14, mind you!) Plus, the adults, not knowing about my beating or injuries, tried to get me to read more mature books, books I wouldn’t touch with a lighter, or torch with a lighter. Even my foster family tried and failed to get me to “grow up” as it were.

“You may not believe this, but I’m obsessed with “The Trees of Light” because those books were my only solace in a cruel world that demanded normalcy and conformity, not imagination and individuality. I was accused of hiding behind the trees of light and refusing to interact with the real world.

“I know I should get some help for my problems, as what I’m doing is unnatural, but I fear the doctors will say that I was a victim of child abuse. I was, seeing as another kid beat me up, and no one intervened until it was too late.

“So what should I do? I know I can’t keep doing what I’m doing, as the school threatened to call social services and have me removed from my foster parents and sent to a hospital for not acting like a teenager. It’s not my fault, but I don’t want to grow up. But I also can’t stay a kid forever.”

Turning Point (StoryADay)

What was the point where my life changed? What happened to me to make me the way I am? I wasn’t the only person in the world to read D.B. Painter’s “The Trees of Light” trilogy, but something happened to me to make me hold on to the imaginary world I created instead of putting the book away and growing up.

As you may have noticed, Rodney and Sylvia McKenner are NOT my parents. (In fact, I don’t know who my parents are.) All I knew was I was living with them since I was 8 years old. Of course, Bruce, Kelvin, and Lydia McKenner have gone out of their way to make me feel unwelcome, as if I was the unwanted child. That doesn’t surprise me, since that was how I was treated when I lived with the Tannenbay family.

To start, Mr. and Mrs. Tannenbay were middle class and their children went to private schools. Since I was a foster kid, I could only go to public schools. Also, the schools I went to were second and third-rate schools, full of kids who couldn’t function in a decent class setting. I would often retreat to a dark corner of the library to escape from the chaos surrounding me.

But the part that led me to where I am now isn’t pretty.

As you can see, there was a kid who made everyone’s lives a living nightmare. He was cruel beyond all reasoning, punching kids who dared to better themselves. All I know was one day, he caught me trying to go into the library during recess, and let’s say that what happened next was unfit for publication. He had grown angry with me because I had ignored him or refused to interact with him.

Of course, after THAT incident, all I had was my imaginary world, which I created while I was reading “The Silver Tomb“. Most of the other kids shunned me for not talking to them and even the teachers couldn’t get me to yield. Social services was contacted and I was eventually taken out of that terrible school and away from the Tannenbays. (You can guess where I ended up.)

After I went to the McKenners, I withdrew into my imaginary world, reading “The Trees of Light” as a way to deal with the pain I had gotten from the bully. I also pushed away the other kids, fearing that they would be like the bully. No one could talk to me, not even if my life depended on it.

So that’s how I grew addicted to reading “The Trees of Light” and rejecting the other books out there. Plus, I rejected the people who would have become my friends if I put down the book and spoke to an actual person, but that’s a given.

Second Look (StoryADay)

Takes place after Marie discovers Nicholas and Leo planned to hit back at her for attempting to hire a concubine.

(Marie’s POV)

I cannot believe that my son and that Leo Trichenberg have managed to undermine my plans to help provide him with a healthy heir. Not only that, but Alexandra found out what I had planned to do and she sternly lectured me on the duties of a husband to his wife and why no man should stray from the marriage bed, not to get a son. I believed she threw in the Biblical story about Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar to illustrate her point.

It’s not like I was asking my son to commit adultery; I just wanted to hire a concubine for him. Kings used to do that in the old days, so what was the problem with that?

Except that the woman I selected for him grew angry and ran away; she screamed something about morals and what the czar should or shouldn’t do. Plus, with Nicholas and Alexandra being more exposed in public, a concubine would be nothing but trouble.

Of course, I had to hear the last line from Leo himself; I should have remembered that his late wife Slavena had four children, and Leo didn’t hire a concubine to build his family either. And I know his other women would’ve have given me some serious hell if I tried to hire a concubine for him.

As for the woman in question (I think her name was Lana), I saw her talking to Lady Emaria in the gardens. I know they’re plotting to provide me with some form of punishment, as Emaria is at an age with Nicholas and she would not accept any form of wickedness, not even from his own mother.
