Emily had something important to speak with Minnie about, so she asked her to come into the greenhouse for some privacy. "Minnie," Emily started, clearing her throat of nerves, "Mom has been talking about picking an heir, someone to inherit the house and continue the Jensen name."
Where is this going? Minnie fretted internally. Emily had always been so nice and... well, a pushover, until recently.
"And I think I should be the one to in inherit our legacy because I have the most skills and accomplishments." Emily smiled, trying to stay assertive.
"What?!!" Minnie exploded. "Why on earth would you think that's OK to rub in my face. If you think you're going to steal the throne from me you are out of your mind." Minnie's face was flushed and she was visibly sweating.
Emily backed away, knowing that Minnie's temper was nothing to fool around with. Trying to smooth things over she added, "I'm sorry Minnie, I just thought that you might understand." she stammered. "I just want what's best for..."
Minnie scoffed in disgust. "You think you're so great Emily but you're not. You're just a suck up and a goody two-shoes. Enjoy your success in high school because it's all you'll have to live on for the rest of your life." Minnie knew how to cut Emily deeply.
Emily was stunned into silence. Avoiding Minnie's angry gaze, she excused herself and walked away with a pain in her heart. That went a lot worse than I expected, she told herself, regretting the interaction.
After Emily left, Minnie allowed herself to burst into tears. She felt bad about saying such hurtful things but felt she had to to protect her own hurt inside. As a child, she was the one in charge, but ever since high school, she's been lost in Emily's shadow.
Meanwhile, another paparazzi bit the dust in the front yard. Though she seemed to be content with the timing.
And here is ole Grimmy... I think she interrupted his vacation or something. Duty calls though.
This is what a blissful goodbye to life looks like at the end of many fulfilled years.
And then Grim just invited himself in. Lexie didn't mind though, her party was about to start.
Macy made it a point to meet some kids her age, since the only person she knew was Daniel. "Hi, I'm Macy," she smiled her charming smile. "I used to be an imaginary friend." And instantly she was popular among both the boys and girls.
Lexie and Grim caught up on old times. It turns out Kelly (the so-called skank) is also a werewolf. Who would have guessed?
Lexie was doing so well until she asked Grim if he could prevent her from aging up. "How dare you try to take advantage of our friendship," he spat. "You know I can't do that!" Grim stormed off into the other room to make some new friends leaving Lexie feeling sheepish.
