Bradley took Mama’s death harder than anyone, and I did my best to keep his pieces together.
Between Lilith and me, we managed to keep him sane at least.
Lilith was our cute little sister that Bradley watched over like a hawk. He wasn’t the only one either, I felt it was my right as a big brother to watch over her and help her learn new things. Like how to steal cookies, or play hide and seek, and even how to eat…
Okay, maybe Bradley taught her that one???
But it was cool having a little sister; Bradley was awesome, but he watched over me more than I did him, so it was nice having someone look up to me for a change.
But in Bradley’s defense, I needed to be watched; nope not going to lie, I NEEDED to be watched. I always ended up in fights at school; usually about Bradley, or Lilith.
I always tried to do stupid stunts to prove my worth; never broke anything, (knock on wood, and thanking Bradley). It also never helped that I ALWAYS, always relied on Bradley to be there for me.
Growing up this way, it’s no wonder that my family called me the daredevil of the family.
It was also not surprising when I decided to take Bradley to the south tower to check out those creepy gold statues. Something just said that I had to go there, I tried to ignore it for a long time telling myself that even for me that plan was too dangerous. However, the urge to go got the better of me.
It was there that we met the ghost of Lady Grey, and pleaded for our lives.
Hyacinth means consistency.
(The reason behind this title will become more apparent as James’ generation goes on.
But I can say that he is very consistent in something.
I would also like to say, that James’ story will not be his alone, it will be between him and Bradley, and will also have a few chances for you to vote on which paths they will take.
I was super excited for this gen for this story alone, but the more I thought about Bradley, James, and Lilith, I became even more excited over their individual stories.
James’ stuck to my original plan, but Bradley grew a path of his own, and Lilith’s path began to sprout the moment Belle became pregnant. For me, this next vote will be intense.
April did not have a vote, and Belle’s siblings I had Jasmine’s and Eric’s fully laid out, and poor Phillip and Belle’s was just an idea half-planned… Though I am glad that Belle’s was picked because I now cannot see this legacy going in a different direction than it did.
However, this new generation all three children are screaming in my head to go their own way, that I cannot wait to learn whose path I will be writing.
With that all said, I want to thank the readers that have put up with me and my scatteredness. You are all amazing, and I love you for sticking around.)
