Generation 1: Chapter 1
"Hi, I'm AJ Houston, I'm new in town. What's your name?"
"Och hello dearie! I'm Rayna Kaminski but mostly people call me Aunty Ray so you can call me that too. New in town, are ye? It's always nice to see new faces around here. Where'd ye come from?"
"Oh, I came from Sunrise Springs. It takes a couple of hours to get there from here. Not that I'd really have any reason to go there..."
"Have ye no family up there, dear?"
"Oh, um, yeah, but I, uh, it's hard to explain."
"Ah, ye don't want teh tell me? That's fine, love. Any time you want a chat, come and find me."
"Thanks, um, Auntie Ray..." I stumbled over the name a bit, since she wasn't really my auntie.
"Bye, now!" With a wave of a wrinkly hand and a crinkly-eyed smile, she left the library.
How nice of her! I thought. If there's one thing I like, it's friendly locals.
Ahh, eating Autumn Salad on the toilet with not much of a roof over your head...it just seems so homely, doesn't it? After I had washed the dishes, I went to bed. I was going job-hunting tomorrow, and I needed to be in top form to get even the slightest sliver of a chance of getting a job. Good night!
