Hero

May 2020:
Sinjin Sutton is 40, Audrey is 30
(Sunny Lloyd is 61, Tucker Craig is 32, Violet is 10, Baine Austin is 11)

Sinjin can honestly say that he loves his job. He was never one of those people who knew from a young age what they wanted to do. He used to be envious of the kids at school who swore that they would doctors or lawyers or teachers or writers. Sinjin never had a clear idea of what he wanted or could do.

Then his “lost” years came along and then rehab. Jumping from one dead end job to another became a sort of career for him. But Audrey made him want more, made him want a job he could be proud of, a real career he could work hard at.

November 2019:
Waylon Menon is 39, Viola is 37, Baine Austin is 11
(Violet Craig is 10, Sarah Menon is 61)

“Gross,” Baine mutters as he walks into the house after spending the afternoon visiting Violet Craig.

Shattered (Winter)

February 2018:
Waylon Menon is 37, Baine Austin is 9
(Lucas Craig is 10, Audrey Sutton is 28)

Baine doesn’t like it when things change. Change is never good. Change meant that his mom died. And now change means that his best friend Lucas doesn’t want to play all the games that they used to play together. Lucas is only a year older, but lately it feels more like ten years older. He’s getting taller, more boring, and doesn’t want to do all of the things Baine wants to do anymore.
