3.29: Curiosity


I know I shouldn’t let Stefan start getting in my head…

But damn it, he has.

He just couldn’t leave it alone. And now he’s been bombarding me with all these old interviews and Youtube videos…

And the more he shows me, the more it’s really starting to feel like…

I talked to Lettie about it, and even she’s starting to believe it. She keeps saying we need to talk to Mama about it…

But Stefan and I both agree that it’s a BAD idea. Even if this all turns out to be some wild goose chase, I don’t think she’d be too happy if she found out what we were doing.

And I don’t think I could blame her. I mean, I already feel like I’m… I dunno. “Cheating” on Papa or something. I’m not sure how else to describe it. I mean, we have a Vater already. We don’t need another one.

But I guess Stefan’s curiosity must be contagious or something…

Hell, I’m even stalking this guy on social media. And that’s making the whole thing even harder.

This Joshua Yuen… He’s always talking about his wife and his kids. He even shares a few family pictures on Twitter sometimes (Pretty ballsy, if you ask me. The public doesn’t even know my kids’ names, let alone what they look like).

But anyway, it just… feels so WEIRD knowing he has this family without us… I mean, assuming he’s really who we think he is.

What the Hell would he want with a couple of adult sons he’s never even met? He already has a family… And so do we. We don’t need him. And he certainly doesn’t need us.

But Stefan won’t listen. He keeps telling me I need to talk to Nora. Grandpa still keeps in touch with her, and she’s even stopped by to visit a couple times over the past few years… Could she really be our Tante? Have we had a member of our family right under our noses all this time?!

I have no idea how I’m supposed to do this. I mean sure, I’ve dropped her the odd email every now and then, but how the Hell am I supposed to suddenly ask for her Bruder’s address without sounding like a total creep?!

This isn’t a good idea. I know it isn’t.

There’s no way this can end well.

  1. “Let’s see what the Muse has brought us this time.” This is what I said before I read today’s chapter.

    Tobi’s right. This won’t end well. Don’t worry, Tobi. With my book of magic spells, we’ll find some way to make this end well. I sense some intensification going to happen in the future chapters.

  2. Yeah, this totally won’t end well. I mean, what about Jonas? He’s been a father to you all these years… The only thing that could benefit this is having Nora as an aunty – but lets wait and see as Ashes to Ashes starts to heat up! 🙂

  3. I’m still trying to be optimistic and hope that it WILL end well … After all, Josh is such a sweetheart. If they got in touch with him, surely he wouldn’t just ignore them… Right?

    But then again, you’re right, you ARE the one writing this… So I don’t want to rely on my optimism too much :p

  4. Oh i actually think it can end well. For all of them. Just talk to Mari! It can’t hurt, can it?

    They are definitely making huge progress. I’m very glad to see the “papa-searching-desease” has spread to both Tobias and Colette. It’s good that she is so supporting of this.

    1. Yeah, Tobi is even getting onboard, though a bit reluctantly Hehehehe 😛 And as for talking to Mari… We’ll see 😉


    1. Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!

      And Stefan does know his family loves him. He just… Really feels something is missing 😦


  5. Of course it would be a bad idea to talk to Mari to see whether you’re potentially getting carried away over nothing or whether it’s a legitimate possibility…[sarcasm] The Ainsworth family trait lives on, even in generation 3 😀

    I’m sort of in two minds about whether they need To meet Josh or not. It’s definitely not essential for him to be a part of their lives. But if they know who he is, it seems only fair to everyone involved that they at least meet. I think if I was either in the twins or Josh’s position I would want to know (obviously this is purely hypothetical, since I’ll never have the same problem – mater semper certa est :))

    That being said, I’m not sure how Josh’s family will take all this, ha!

    1. Lucas is proud of his descendants carrying on his lovely avoiding-difficult-conversations trait 😉 Hehehehe

      We’ll see soon-ish what comes of all this!!! ^_^


  6. Knowing the writer, you are very right, Tobi! Despite that, I hope everything ends well. As for the chapter itself: it was awesomely written and I really enjoyed it! Great job as always.
