The Terrible Demise of Tortuga

Chapter twenty five.

The next morning Elizabeth was as always helping her grandpa with the animals. “Betsy is getting really old.” Elizabeth remarked. Aaron nodded. “She’s almost as old as me.” Aaron said. “I got her when I was a kid.” Elizabeth smiled. “You must be really old then.” She said. Aaron laughed. “Righhht!” They walked off to where the shadow dilo was. “Hi Umbra!” Elizabeth greeted the shadow dilo. Elizabeth had named the shadow dilo and they had bonded. Umbra let out a fond growl. Elizabeth scratched Umbra.

“So Elizabeth how has school been going?” Asked Joe. Elizabeth shrugged. “Fine.” She said, but her cheeks grew rosy. Olivia giggled. “What is it?” Amara asked. “Nothing!” Elizabeth said quickly. “Oh yeah sure it’s nothing, just that… there’s this boy named Eric and he REALLY likes Elizabeth.” Olivia said. Elizabeth’s cheeks turned even redder. “We’ll it’s ok if you like someone as long as you don’t get any ideas. You’re still young.” Peter said. “Did you hear that Emma and Andrew are dating?” Aaron Jr. asked. “Yeah, but their WAY older than Elizabeth and Eric.” Amanda said. “Will y’all please cut it out?!” Elizabeth exclaimed uneasily. “There’s no need to make a big deal out of a teenager crush!” “It’s not like we’re going to get married!”

Next chapter coming up soon.
