"Mom, I'm Home" yelled Jon as he came in the door and swung to the right to head upstairs.

He reached the second floor where the bedrooms were and almost flattened his older sister, Barbara.

"She's not home jon" Barbara looked like she was on the edge of tears.

"What do you mean she's not home, tonight's family night, we need to cream her in whatever game she thinks she might have a chance at." Ever since our father died, Mom, Barbara, Zoe and I, (and sometimes Mindy and Mandy, our cousins) would have a game night. It was tradition. it was usually the best meal of the night, the most fun, and sometimes we'd have guests over.

"I don't know hon" I said as I soflty hugged her back

Barbara then walked around us "I'm going to make some dinner before I go deliver some more phone books" She said as she headed downstairs. Barbara's income went to keeping the car going, and she also managed to make some for a decent clothes budget.

"Go help Barbie" I said, pushing Zoe towards the stairs.

"She doesn't like that name" Zoe giggled.

"Then go help Madame Le'babs, and be quick my dear, tut tut" I said, faking a slight British accent.

After Zoe left, I went into my room, and set my backpack down. I then pulled out the wishing stone.
