Look at them, so young and carefree. They don’t know how good they have it. Youth is wasted on the young. And wisdom is wasted on the old. What do you suppose they’re talking about? Hmm, if I were to guess… Hey everyone! Look at me! I’m neglecting my studies! How am I the team leader? I’m only twelve! Ugh, all I do is mope. But I’m too young to know how tough life really is. What’s my problem? Who knows… I’m Yang! Let’s fight! They’re not that bad, Winter. That is exactly how they sound. Grown-ups have it so easy. They can do anything they want and never get in trouble! Ruby, I don’t think that’s how being a grown-up works. Don’t ruin this for me! Oh, uh, where was I? Oh, yes. Let’s go eat heaps of dessert! Agreed! And let’s throw all the vegetables in the trash! Of course! And afterwards, let’s stay up as late as we want! Curfews are for chumps! My sister would never use the word chumps. That is exactly how adults talk. I give the tummy rubs! I’m a good girl! I sneak the treats. I’m the best girl! I’m a chew toy. I’m the Yang! Let’s fight! Penny! I was watching my fourth favorite show! I want you to meet my new friends, Ruby! Ew, outside? But all the cool kids are indoors watching TV and lying on a comfy sofa like a slug! ESCAPE! I calculated a ninety-three percent probability you would try that. Okay, fine, where are these mysterious friends of yours? They are all around us! Oh, I see. Hello, Penny’s friends! It’s very nice to meet you! They can’t shake your hand, silly. … ..- .–.
‘Sup … ..— -.
S2N But they are very happy to meet you too. Holy cats! You speak firefly! Of course! My cricket is pretty good too. Penny, that was magical! Thank you so much for introducing me. I knew you would get along! You know, you’re a lot like those fireflies. I am? How so? You light up my life. Aw, Ruby. You are a bioluminescent bug to me as well! Hey, wait a minute. Where’s my cookie? –.- -.-. .-.-.- —– -.-.
