No worries! Real life responsibilities are more important. Congrats on making it to the Grand Final!! I remember your cover of Van’s Moondance on youtube. That was lovely <3

THANK YOU GUYS!!!

I’d love to share a video of my performance if you’d like! I’ll have to ask Mum if she’d mind filming it. If not, I know there’s the option to purchase a live recording of the performance so I can always at least share that if I can’t organise video :)

Thank you all so much for your ongoing support! I really do love you.

Sorry about this, everyone. I’ve been called into work on all the days I was planning to work on Blood Legacy! I’ll be back soon I promise!

In un-related news, I just found out that I made it through to the Grand Final of the Stage Door singing competition here in Melbourne so I’m also a bit pre-occupied with that! Mostly because I have no idea what I’m going to sing!!!

Anyway, I hope you’re all well and I love you. Especially you. Yes, you. You’re fantastic.

Guys, sorry but there’s going to be a mini hiatus. The last post in my queue went up today and I thought I’d have time to fill it up today but things didn’t really work out the way I had planned. I was going to do it tomorrow instead but I just got called into work so … might have to wait a few days. Sorry guys!

Dear Diary,

Jai assured me he was fine and his eyes are up off the floor, but now he seems anxious. He doesn’t want to talk to anybody, but he keeps following Jaden around looking incredibly guilty. His eyes are big and glassy and he keeps wringing his hands. In his entire life I’ve never seen him like this. It’s incredibly uncharacteristic of him.

What changed? He was having such a good time! 

Perhaps I’m being paranoid. I must confess, I’m feeling a little stewed myself. I’ve been drinking quite a bit. I haven’t drank this much since I became mortal and I didn’t realise what terrible drinkers humans were! I can only hold a fraction of what I used to be able to put away as a Faerie! Human’s are weak creatures indeed. 

Perhaps I should put my worries aside, dance with my wife, and talk about all of this with Jai tomorrow when we’re level headed once more. Besides, I’m getting to the point where writaeriug iad begoming a littl difficlt

gdnight

Dear Diary,

I can’t believe I forgot to tell you in my last entry! Jaden was choses as class valedictorian! He also graduated with top marks in EVERYTHING, beating every other student in every one of his classes! His genius will never cease to amaze me. He was also voted “Most Likely to Burn Down Their Own House”, which is a little concerning. Jai was voted “Most Popular” to no-one’s surprise!

It’s been a couple of hours since my last entry, and Jai is three sheets to the wind; he’s sloshed, he’s potted, he is off his tits drunk! I’ve never seen him like this! It’s quite entertaining, actually. He’s nothing like his usual zen self and I can tell you without a doubt that none of the words coming out of his mouth contain his usual wisdom!

He started out talking loudly, ranting and waving his arms about. Now he seems a little down. He’s swaying a lot and keeps his eyes on the floor. I’d better check to see if he’s alright.

Dear Diary,

I haven’t written in a couple of days. The lead-up to tonight has been hectic to say the least. I thought the boys’ birthdays would be the event of my life but nothing prepared me for tonight. Tonight the boys graduated from high school. Seeing them both up there in their caps and robes … I’m not ashamed to admit that I cried. True to form, Artio leaned in close and whispered those words that have become so familiar to me now; “Put up a wall, dude!”

Anyway. Tonight is so monumental that I have decided to … what do the kids call it? … I’ve decided to “live-blog” the entire evening. I don’t know what a blog is, but Jai assures me that the term fits what I plan to do. Basically I’m going to be writing in you, my diary, all night. 

So, let’s start! The ceremony is over, the boys have changed, and the whole family is now at the local tavern celebrating! I predict that we’ll be here till the wee hours of the morning!

The moment we arrived the boys headed straight to the bar and have been downing drink after drink. I think they must have made some form of agreement, their enthusiasm seems to stand on ceremony! Lirael is dancing like a complete maniac, she’s so, so, SO excited for her brothers! Artio’s giving me come hither looks, I think I’d better go and dance!

Write again soon!

All of Jai and Jaden’s friends have come along! They certainly have a lot of them! Jonah and his sister Hera are here, the whole Knight family is here including Bethany who is the girlfriend of … one of the boys, I can’t keep track anymore. Toshiko’s kids are all here, Lirael’s been getting along really well with them. All in all it’s very loud, very crowded and very wonderful. 

This is a big deal. It’s not just another birthday. Tonight, my boys grow up. They become adults; real-life people with real-life responsibilities. I know the transition can be scary, but it can be a lot of fun too. I hope to God they’ll be okay. 

More than ever before, I wish my parents were here to see this.

-TB.
