Chapter 4: Another Sister?
Meanwhile, just a few miles away, Leo and Alice were busy helping their parents out around the house with some of the chores. This also included washing the dishes that Jennie and Luna had left behind in the sink from breakfast.
The two siblings were thinking about who Luna's little sister really was and what she was like, not to mention, they were thinking about how much fun Jennie and Luna were currently having with her. Leo was slowly regretting the choice he had made earlier that day to stay home and not go with them to meet her.
But what neither one of them knew, they would have a surprise that was about to arrive for the both of them in just a few moments. As Leo and Alice helped their mother with the laundry basket, they could hear a loud rumbling sound.
THOOM! THOOM! THOOM! THOOM! Was all the pair of them could hear as they walked down the stairs to the basement. Leo was very surprised. He placed the laundry basket down on the washer, then both he and Alice ran up the stairs together.
Leo: Sounds a lot like Jennie and Luna are coming home early from their visit with her sister.
Alice: No...that's only one pair of footsteps I'm hearing.
She was right, it was a pair of footsteps that she could hear and there was only one set of them that was rumbling along in the distance. Then, they both heard a very young childish giggling, it echoed all around the place and the ground started shaking a bit with each "THOOM" sound they heard.
Confused by what was causing this sound, Leo and Alice darted towards the front room and then out the front door, to try and see what was causing this sound.
Leo: There's no way that Jennie and Luna are kids again...is there?
He was referring to the one time when Luna had made Jennie into a 12 year old girl just so she could play with Alice when she was gigantic. Meanwhile, Alexis was so very excited as she continued strolling along, while gently stomping along on the ground, heading towards her big sisters house to meet her siblings.
Alexis: BIG SISTER'S HOUSE! YAY! BIG SISTER'S HOUSE! YAY! HEHEHEHE! ^^
The gigantic Alexis kept strolling forwards, heading towards Leo and Alice, who were both very astonished at the sight of the gigantic sized 6 years old little girl. Leo was particularly surprised to see her approaching the both of them.
Leo: Who is that?!
Alice: *gasp!* It's...it's another gigantic girl...almost like...me...
Soon, Alexis stopped walking and she looked out into the distance, she could see a huge amount of houses along the lake. One in particular caught her eye as she noticed two tiny and mysterious figures standing outside, looking up at her. The two figures were (of course) Leo and Alice. The house she was looking at was still just so far away from her though.
Feeling confused as to rather or not she was in the right place, Alexis pointed at the house and tried asking her dearest sister and Jennie.
Alexis: IS THAT THE HOUSE, BIG SISTERS?
In response, Jennie just nodded her head.
Jennie: Yes it is. ^^
Alexis: YAY! HERE I COME! HEHEHE! ^^
She said excitedly, as she started strolling again, heading right towards the house and towards the two tiny people who were standing outside of it. As she started walking again, Leo noticed 3 unfamiliar figures sitting on the little girls shoulder.
Leo: Who's that on her shoulder?
Alice: Where?! I don't see them!
She shouted, as she could only see the glare of the afternoon sun, limiting her view of anything else around her. Both Leo and Alice looked up and up at the towering little girl, as she continued to gently stomp her feet on the ground, on her way towards them. She was having so much fun.
Leo: She's coming straight towards us. Stay with me, Alice!
Alice did just that, as she continued looking up at the gigantic little girl, as she kept on approaching them both.
Alexis kept on approaching the house, coming closer and closer to it. When she was finally close enough to it...she stopped walking. She had stopped just a few feet away from where both Leo and Alice were standing. Soon Alexis looked right down at both of them and felt very confused as to who the two of them were.
Then, she gently and carefully, got down on her knees and smiled happily at the both of them, as she started talking to them both.
Alexis: HEY THERE, TINY ONES! ^^ ARE YOU BOTH OKAY?
Leo: Jennie? Luna? Is that you? And is that...Brian?
Brian: Hi guys. ^^
He replied, as he waved to them both, Jennie just smiled at them.
Jennie: Leo? Alice? Me and Luna would like you to meet, Alexis. ^^ She's Luna's little sister, the one that she told you guys about. ^^ Alexis, these 2 are my brother and sister, Leo and Alice. ^^
Looking down at the both of them, Alexis began to smile happily and she started waving to the both of them
Alexis: IT'S VERY NICE TO MEET YOU, LEO AND ALICE. ^^ I'M ALEXIS AND I'M LUNA'S LITTLE SISTER! ^^
Leo: Nice to meet you. ^^
He said, as he began waving back at her. But Alice didn't see her as being so friendly at first. In fact, she was blinded by anger after what Alexis had just called both her and Leo. She took offense to Alexis calling her "Tiny One" and was determined to prove to Alexis that she could grow as big as she really wanted.
Alice: Also, I maybe tiny now, but don't try and call me that--
Jennie: ALICE! DON'T!
She shouted in a very unhappy tone of voice. Alice then looked at her oldest sister and noticed that she had a very unhappy look on her face. Alice decided to stay at her normal size soon after she had noticed that. This made Alexis frown, as she felt that Alice was now very unhappy with her.
Alexis: PLEASE, DON'T BE ANGRY WITH ME. I DIDN'T MEAN TO HURT YOUR FEELINGS, ALICE. I NEVER LIKE TO HARM ANYONE. JENNIE AND MY BIG SISTER CAN SEE THAT, WHEN I WALKED ALL THE WAY TO HERE. EVEN BRIAN NOTICED THAT.
Soon, Jennie very quickly tried explaining why Alice had gotten so angry with her to begin with.
Jennie: It's nothing personal Alexis, it's just that she has the same growing abilities as me and Luna do. She might have thought that you calling her a tiny one was really offensive to her.
Alexis: I SEE...
She frowned again and looked down at Alice. While at the same time, Leo was frowning and looked at Alice with an accusing look on his face.
Alexis: I'M SORRY...
Leo: It's okay Alexis, she just--
Alice: No, I'm sorry, Alexis!
She shouted, as she began to feel guilty for hurting Alexis' feelings like that. Still feeling rather sad, Alexis then carefully extended her finger, gently towards Alice, stopping when it was close enough to her.
Alexis: I DIDN'T MEAN TO CALL YOU TINY AS A WAY TO TEASE YOU. I ALWAYS CALL PEOPLE WHO ARE SMALLER THEN ME THAT, NOT AS A WAY TO TEASE SOMEONE, BUT AS A WAY TO SHOW THE OTHERS THAT I'M NOT MEAN TO THEM. WILL YOU FORGIVE ME, ALICE, PLEASE?
Quickly, Alice hugged Alexis' finger, nice and tightly.
Alice: Of course I will. I'm sorry for being so rude to you.
To her relief, Alexis began to smile again.
Alexis: I FORGIVE YOU, ALICE. ^^
Both girls began to smile a little bit at each other. As Alice looked up at Alexis, she could see just how kind, friendly and gentle Alexis was really being towards her. With all of that now out of the way and with Alice now no longer hugging Alexis' giant finger, Jennie spoke up...
Jennie: Leo? Alice? There's something I wanna try asking you guys.
Leo: What it is, big sister?
Nervous now, Jennie looked over at both Luna and Alexis, unsure of what she should try and do now. She should try telling them that she wanted Alexis to be her sister or not? How would Leo and Alice react if she told them?
Jennie: Should I tell them, dearest sister?
Luna: Go for it, dearest big sister. ^^
Alexis: GO FOR IT, JENNIE. ^^
Both girls smiled at Jennie, which helped her start to feel much more confident with her desicion. She looked back at both of them, took a deep breath and finally told them.
Jennie: Well...earlier in the city, I thought about allowing Alexis to be our little sister, especially since she's just as gentle and as friendly as we are and since she's already related to Luna herself. But Luna thought that this wasn't a good idea, seeing how it would probably be too hard for you guys to accept her being our sister...
She paused and looked up at both Luna and Alexis again.
Jennie:...Luna brought her here to try telling you guys this and to let you guys actually meet her for yourselves, before we ever made a decision on this. You guys don't have a problem with her being your little sister, do you?
After hearing this, Alice smiled happily.
Alice: No actually, I don't have any kind of a problem with her being our little sister. ^^
Jennie: What about you Leo?
As she looked down at her little brother, she was unsure how Leo would react to being Alexis' big brother. But to her surprise, Leo was smiling!
Leo: Well, with a cute face like that, it's just impossible to say "No".
He told them, as (to Jennie and Luna's surprise) Leo began blushing a little bit too! It was rare for Leo to ever do anything like this for anyone...
Happy that both her little brother and little sister approved of Jennie's idea, Jennie just smirked as she looked up at Luna and told her...
Jennie: Well Luna? What do you have to say about that? It looks like I was right all along, about them wanting to accept her as their little sister. ^^
Luna: Well...I think Alexis is going to be so happy. ^^
She said, as she began to smile back at Jennie. The two of them then looked up at Alexis, who was now full of excitement.
Alexis: YAY! THAT MEANS I CAN BE YOUR LITTLE SISTER, TOO?
But then Alice realized that she may not be older then Alexis was, and so she tried making sure that she really was older then her.
Alice: You are younger then me, right? I'm only 12 years old. ^^
Alexis: YES I AM, I'M ONLY 6 YEARS OLD, ALICE! ^^
Alice: AMAZING! ^^
Leo: And yes you can, Alexis. ^^
Jennie: What do you think Alexis? You can be our little sister and you can even live with us, if you really want to? ^^
Before Jennie could say anything else, Alexis stood up to her full gigantic size and, very gently, she began to jump up and down, while clapping her hands at the same time. Jennie smiled happily at Alexis as she did this and as she started shouting...
Alexis: YAY! I WANT TO BE YOUR LITTLE SISTER! I WANT TO BE YOUR LITTLE SISTER! YAY! ^^
Jennie: I wanna be your sister too, Alexis. ^^
Just then, their mom ran outside, as she noticed the sound of a mysetrious little girl's voice coming from right outside their house.
Jennie quickly noticed this and started sweating nervously, both her and Luna had completely forgotten about their parents and what they would say when they found out about Alexis. Using their telepathic powers, both Jennie and Luna started talking with each other...
Jennie: "Oh, crap..."
Luna: "oh, no..."
Quickly Alexis stopped jumping and clapping, when she noticed another unfamiliar figure (their mom) running outside, heading straight towards Leo and Alice.
