It had been a while since Delsin’s birthday. He had been taking it easy, just slowly working on his aspiration. He always had one person on his mind though and that was Callie. He hadn’t seen her since his birthday because of how busy she was since she had just had her birthday and just gotten a new job. Today though that was going to change.
“Hey Callie? Yea you’re still coming over today, right?” Delsin asked nervously,
“Yea! I was actually just getting ready to leave! I’ll see you in a little bit okay?”
With a sigh of relief Delsin hung up the phone. They had been texting and calling each other just like they had promised to but he still felt like he was walking on eggshells around her. He knew how badly he screwed up when he was a teenager and he really didn’t want to mess it up this time around.
About 30 minutes had passed until Callie showed up. When Delsin saw her come out of the back door onto the patio where he was he wasn’t sure who he was looking at. Callie had changed so much since she got older he didn’t know what to say. All his mind could think about was how beautiful she looked to him.
Callie let out a nervous laugh, “Uhhhh earth to Delsin? Anyone in there?”
“Oh yea sorry! It’s just I haven’t seen you in so long and you’ve...well you’ve changed a lot..BUT that’s a good thing! Don’t think I’m saying you look bad or anything!”
Delsin let out a nervous laugh and massaged the back of his neck,
“Well I did grow up you know. Plus I got a job with a corporation so I have to dress nice to go to work and I guess it just kind of spilled over into my everyday life too! Anyways, what did you wanna do today?”
“Oh well today is Harley’s birthday and I thought maybe you wanted to come over to celebrate with the family! You know how much heir birthdays mean to my family, especially when the chosen heir is coming of age.”
All of the sudden Callie brought Delsin into a tight hug,
“What is it? Are you okay?”
Callie sniffled and let out a quiet chuckle,
“Yea..it’s just that usually only your family gets to come to the big Belle parties. People like me don’t usually get to go to such things…”
Delsin held on tightly and smoothed her hair. He wasn’t sure why she was so emotional but he got the overwhelming urge comfort her.
“What do you mean people like you?”
“Oh you know, people who aren’t apart of the legacy family! I mean for Creator’s sake your family is so large that you guys have run out of room in Newcrest for everyone and now you guys are spilling over into Oasis Springs! I’m just a silly nobody that kind of lives in your world…”
Delsin pulled away and gently held Callie’s face in his hands,
“You listen to me Callie Weekes, you are not a nobody, not in my eyes and not in anybody else’s. Yea I might have a big family, and sure we have a lot of money but that doesn’t separate us from anybody else. We’re all the same, just a bunch of people trying to live their lives as best as we can.”
Using his thumb he gently wiped away the tears on Callie’s face,
“Now how about we head inside and you can help us get the party together okay?”
With a slow nod they headed inside, but not before Delsin realized Callie had taken a hold of his hand.
The birthday went off without a hitch and the grand finale was underway.
It was finally time for the heir to age up and take over the legacy!
“Confetti, confetti for everyone! Happy birthday sweetheart!”
“Awww Aunt Elisa you got confetti on the cake! It’s okay though we’ll just pick it out.”
“Oh I’m sorry dear. I thought I threw them a little further away, you know these old eyes can’t see as well as they use to.”
Harley’s final trait that she gained was Lazy! So now she is a Lazy, Foodie, Loner!
After the party had died down and everyone had left, and Delsin made sure to say goodbye to Callie, Celine was left with her two children in the living room.
Celine looked at her kids proudly,
“You know you two are the best thing that ever happened to me?”
“What makes you say that Momma?” Harley asked,
“Well Harley, you were the first Belle to complete more than one childhood aspiration, and Delsin you were the first Belle to ever get started on his adult aspiration right away! So I am very proud of both of you.”
Delsin sat up with a smug look on his face,
“Well I am pretty awesome if I do say so myself.”
Celine and Harley burst into laughter as Harley ruffled her older brother’s hair,
“Sure you are big bro, suuuuure you are.”
This is the last chapter of Generation 4! Thank you guys for sticking with me this long and Generation 5 will be starting up very soon!
