Now that she was grown up and on her way to becoming a great author, it was time for Evelyn to think about her duty as heir to the Jones family name. That meant getting out of the house and meeting new people. Some of them were pretty weird.
Some of them were pretty cool though. That night she met Elliot Klein, and the two of them hit it off immediately.
Evelyn shared her feelings with an apple tree in the family garden, since no one was awake when she got home. The apple tree seemed to understand Evelyn perfectly, and was a pretty good listener.
A few days later, Darlene’s baby arrived.
Darlene named him Erik to match the rest of the fifth generation of Joneses, even though she knew he would never be the heir (barring horrible accidents for both Evelyn and Edith of course). She debated whether she should tell Danny about his son.
