It had been only a couple years since Harley and Mason’s wedding. Many things changed around the house in that time. Harley was a well known bestselling author and went to book signings more and more often. Mason had started up his own bodyguard business that was doing pretty well for being small time. Celine was still alive and moving even though since Jensen died she doesn’t talk that much and is thinking about retiring from her career as a video game champion. Everything was going nicely, for the most part. The problem now was Harley and Mason had two overly rambunctious teenage boys that got in too much trouble on a regular basis.
Harley had just finished reading a strongly worded email she had received from the private school Mason and Claudio are attending and all she could do was shake her head.
Harley sighed and wrung her hands in the air at Mason,
“Mason! Do you even understand what they have done this time?! They filled the principal's office with PLASTIC BALLS! Who even does that?!”
Mason scratched his greying beard and shrugged his shoulders,
“They’re teenagers babe, I’m not sure what you would expect from them. From what you told me they were just as bad as when they were kids. Plus it is kind of funny you have to admit…”
Harley glared at Mason and quickly grabbed her phone texting Claudio to bring him and his brother to her office. When they arrived they both stood awkwardly in front of her desk while she glared at them disapprovingly over the top of her computer.
“Are you going to explain to me what and why you put so many plastic balls in your principal’s office?”
Claudio raised his hands and said a matter of factly,
“Well you see Mom he just doesn’t have a sense of humor! Today was senior prank day and who else would people look to to mastermind such a plot other than us! So of course what we would do was fill his room with a bunch of plastic balls considering he’s obviously lost his!”
Mason leaned forward in his chair and snickered.
Harley glanced over at him and glared, quieting his laughs.
Coheed leaned out from behind Claudio and raised a hand,
“Come on Mom. Please don’t be mad at us for a little prank like that!”
Harley continued to look on at them with crossed arms and a disapproving stare,
“It was in the name of school spirit?”
Coheed said nervously.
Harley raised her arms and shrugged,
“Well if you boys aren't regretful for this prank you pulled I can tell you one thing. If you don’t get your act together before spring break comes it looks like your cousins will be going to Windenburg by themselves.”
Both of the boys opened their mouths to protest,
“AH. I don’t want to hear a peep from either one of you other than a “Yes ma’am”.
