"Bribe them with private islands and a corrupt senator apiece?" Bella whispers back.

Permalink

"Pff, no, I can't afford that, I'm saving for college. No, Bella - we will do something far more sinister. We'll bribe them with cookies."

Permalink

"Oooh. Bribery on the cheap. I like the way you think."

Permalink
"Thank you. I try. Cookies add a new dimension to things, but I will adapt."

Speaking of cookies... Nom. Nom nom.

"Darren, what if you eat too much of the bribe material and have to come up with corrupt senators at the last minute?"

Permalink

".... Shhhh. Shh," he says. "I have my sister, I can make faces at her for her to make more. Or, if we're speaking truly crazy talk - I could just bake them myself."

Permalink

Savannah gasps, theatrically. "But - Darren. Darren you're our main cook, if you spend your time baking, too - you might never come out of the kitchen!"

Permalink

"That is a sacrifice I will have to make. For the good of cookie bribery, everywhere."

Permalink

"I can contribute large quantities of blueberry pancakes, will that help?"

Permalink

"Certainly. They definitely won't hurt the cause!"

Permalink

"Right then. Oh, Savannah, did Darren tell you, the plan is convening at my place after school and helping me get rid of the triple batch of pancake batter."

Permalink

"He did not tell me but I am so on board with this!"

Permalink
"Awesome." And then, because Angela's sitting right there, "I didn't think to ask Dad about you, Angela, and I don't like to call him at work if I don't have to." She stops short of actually inviting Angela to do anything else. Angela will be hard to explain to if she attracts more lava monsters.

"It's okay," says Angela. "I have to watch my brothers this afternoon while my father goes to the dentist anyway."

"That sucks. I mean, yeah at least they're not terrible, but I'd get annoyed if I had to babysit Darren. Any more than I already do."

Permalink

"Ha. Ha ha ha ha. So funny."

Permalink
"I don't mind. They're sweet," says Angela. "If they can get their friend next door to come over I'm going to teach them euchre."

"Aw," says Bella.
Permalink

"That's cute," agrees Darren.

Permalink
Angela smiles.

"Occasionally I wish I had a sibling, but I think being an only child suits me pretty well. I think I would have had to share a room," remarks Bella. "At least at Charlie's house."
Permalink

"It would be weird to not have Darren just be there. We're not even inseparable or something, but him being non-existent is strange. Who would translate politically correct for me and bring me things when I don't want to get up?"

Permalink

Darren snorts. "I am reduced to translations and fetching things. I am so proud."

Permalink

"Love you!"

Permalink

"Ah, translations, fetching things, and love. Your twinhood is saved."

Permalink

"I feel so blessed."

Permalink

Hee hee hee.

"Besides, someone has to back you up if someone decides that since you are a nerd and scrawny that your face would look better if it were shaped differently. So it's not just one way!"
