My mom said I would be living with my cool older cousin, and I would get to see the city, and I would have my own bedroom. She could come to visit me when she had time off of work, and my cousin would show me the Zoo, and the museums, and all the other cool places we don't have out in the suburbs.
Both of them told me that they loved me very much, and they would miss me, but it was going to be great fun. Both of them said that everything was okay. But everything is not okay... why would they send me away, if everything was okay?
I still don't know what I did wrong.

I don't know my dad all too well. He was a law student too, but he actually got to be a lawyer in the end, so he spends a lot of time at the office working on cases. My dad is really smart and good at solving puzzles, but he isn't very understanding. He's impatient and he doesn't like it when people can't keep up with him, which isn't very fair if you ask me. I didn't see a whole lot of him, aside from when he came home from work at night, and sometimes when he took weekends off. Mostly he holes himself up in the study. Dad went to Ozat, the boarding school that I go to now, and he was on a bunch of sports teams and in clubs. It feels like I see him more often now that I'm at school, with all his pictures on the walls. Some of the older teachers talk about his "Legacy", because he was captain of the football team last time we won the Country Cup, and he was Head Boy, and on the Debate Team too… he was a very good student and everyone at the school loved him. Sometimes I read his quotes in the yearbooks – he has a lot – and wonder if I'll ever be like him.
I actually live with my big cousin, Klieru. He's some kind of artist and my bedroom is really his "studio". He's very messy and never cleans up after himself, which is why my room is full of junk and half-finished paintings. Quinn is always bothering me to clean up, I guess she doesn't understand that it isn't my mess all over the place. Klieru did let me pick new wallpaper for it, though, which was nice I guess. Eru doesn't seem to like me very much… he doesn't mind my being here, (I think my mom might be the only person to actually pay him rent) but he never wants to do anything with me. Sometimes he can be a real jerk. He's got this horrible messed up blue fuzzle that he likes to hide in my room to scare me. I want him to stop, but he just laughs at me. He went to Ozat when he was younger, but he hasn't done anything since he graduated, not more school or actual work. My mom says he needs to get a job.
This is what Klieru calls his family - the people who live at High Hopes.They haven't taken a picture recently... I guess that's why I'm not in this one. I don't really know them that well.
Quinn is really smart for a petpet. I mentioned that my mom trained her to do tricks, but some of her tricks are way cooler than 'normal' petpet tricks. Like if I stay up past my bed time, she'll sit on whatever I am doing until I go to bed. Or if I don't do a chore, she tugs on my tail until I return to it. Some of the chores I did at home I don't have to do at the apartment, like clearing the table after dinner, or making my bed every morning, but she makes me do them anyways.
Lots of kids pick on me, at school because I'm smaller than the others and my parents aren't nearby - unlike the other day students - and around home, because I go to the snobby school and my neighbours just don't like Ozat students. There aren't any other kids in the apartment, unless you count Kahia, and I don't really because she's actually really really old. And kind of annoying. I do get good grades, though, but my teachers all want me to talk to others more and to participate. I'm in the f-f-Philatelic club (that's "stamp collecting" for laypersons!) but I'm not very good at sports. Lots of the old teachers want me to go on the debate team, but I don't like fighting with people, even if they're polite about it.
One of the things I do like is we're all in Houses. When we get in to grade six we're allowed to start boarding, staying at the school, but even before that we're assigned the place where we'll eventually live. The dorm buildings are all identical, except that their roofs are different colours. Just like my dad, I'm in Percival, which means that my House Mascot is the Pteri, and our colour is teal. Percival is special because Ozat's School Mascot is a Blue Pheonix, and the Pteri looks a lot like it; it's like our mascot is all over the school! Percival was also the house where the first Headmaster's kids all stayed when they came here, which makes it even more special. The other houses are Yorick, the Gold Yurbles, Laurent, Indigo Lupes, and Tomas, lime green yurbles.
