The Avesnes Aristocracy - 76
Benjamin had grown up into a teenager as well and Madelyn decided to invite him over to hang out. He was still the same kind of guy as he had been as a kid. Sloppy long hair, a laid back attitude but also a nice set of brains. He wasn’t the kind of guy she could fall in love with. He simply wasn’t her type and his personality was a bit too similar to hers. Madelyn wanted to love someone who was a bit more of a challenge, someone who would pull her into crazy adventures and force her out of her comfort zone. Ben was more like Vincent or Ferdinand, like a brother. Their conversations were always about nerdy stuff they were both interested in, it never got truly exciting or even slightly flirty.
“…and so I figured out a way to attach a solar panel to my phone so that I never have to charge it again. It’s pretty cool, I can make you one as well if you like.”
“That’s quite amazing, Ben! You might be able to sell something like that. You should file for a patent.”
“Yeah, maybe I should. Thanks for the tip, Maddy.”
She still enjoyed hanging out with him though, so the thought that they’d eventually have to live together wasn’t too bad. The only thing that really made her feel awkward was the thought of making babies with him, but she’d deal with that when it was time for it. For now, she was just going to enjoy her teen life, which included random pillow fights in the kitchen!
Vincent’s new friend Jesse Woodwall had aslo aged up into a teenager and she was quite beautiful. Justine was out of town to perform some celebrity task for sick kids in the hospital, so he had the courage to invite both her and her mom to the mansion.
“You know, they picked Madelyn as heir and Madelyn told me I’m free to become friends with whoever I want. Since she’s heir now she pulls the strings in the household so I’m less scared of mom! Maybe you can come here more often now and we can hang out?” he asked Jesse. He realized how pretty she was and definitely wouldn’t mind spending more time with her, preferably without her mother next time.
“Sounds great, Vincent. I’m glad your sister isn’t as strict as your mother. It should make life easier for all of you guys here,” she smiled at him.
“Ohh yeah,” he replied. “I’m sure if it!”
