I apologize before hand for any mistakes, I wrote this right on the forum. So anyways, enjoy. Oh and before I forget, this chapter doesn’t have any diaper content, but the story will definitely have it. It might just take a few chapters to get there.
Chapter 1 -
All around the country students were at the edge of their seats. Clamouring to gather their last few possessions, hurriedly stuffing them into their bags and impatiently tapping away at their desks as the last few seconds ticked away on the clock. It was as if the thoughts of all the students were one, counting down in anticipation.
The bells rang and countless bodies evacuated their desks and classrooms, filling the halls with the loud cheers of celebratory wonder as students everywhere began their summer vacation. The sound was deafening, the thunderous falling of many footsteps all moving about, the slam of lockers, the fall of paper, the booming voices of chatter amongst the students of all ages, everywhere. And then within moments, it all came to a stop, the halls devoid of any life, littered with the remains of the school year as the schools became nothing more than an empty building awaiting the return of its occupants in the fall.
And everywhere else became just that little bit more lively, as the walls that once kept the rabble in released its young charges to the unsuspecting world around it for the length of two whole months. Boys roughhoused on the streets, girls gossiped on the sidewalk, and all was well with the world. It really was just your usually last day of school.
And the group of girls heading down main street were no exception. Wildly going on about their plans for the summer, the vacations they were going on, the things they were going to see and do and so on. Lindsey did not have those same plans however. Her mind was solely focused on something else this summer, sure there would be time to relax and have some fun, but there were other things that needed to be done.
“Lindsey.” A girl called.
Lindsey kept walking, her eyes downcast, hand rubbing her chin as if in deep thought.
“Lindsey!” The girl called again, grabbing Lindsey’s shoulder in the process.
“Woah,” Lindsey replied startled, “What?”
“You’ve been spacing out for like twenty minutes now.”
“Oh, what? Sorry, was just thinking about something.”
“Whatever,” The girl said turning around to continue walking. The group of four girls, including Lindsey, continued the conversation right where they left off.
“So Lindsey, like we’ve been asking, what are your plans for the summer?”
Lindsey flinched at the question, the other girls just looked at her as if something were wrong.
“Nothing much really,” Lindsey finally said, shaking herself out of it, “The usual I guess, we should all go see a movie sometime.” Lindsey was quick to change the subject.
The girls brushed off Lindsey’s unusual reaction and again continued to walk, “Yeah sounds good, maybe next weekend.”
The girls continued to talk, Lindsey trying to join in as to not bring any more suspicion onto herself, before they all went their separate ways to their respective homes. Lindsey lived a little farther away from her friends then the other girls, her route home always including a shortcut through the small park nearby. Lindsey usually just walked on through, not a second glance at the children at play on the small playground. But today was a little different, today Lindsey had somethings to think about and she sat down on an empty swing and absentmindedly swayed back and forth.
See, what Lindsey didn’t want to tell her friends was that this summer she really wanted a job. Actually, she wanted money, which in turn called for a job. See they were fifteen now, or at least Lindsey would be in a couple weeks and all she could think about was that in just a short years time she would be able to drive. So that was it, she needed money to save up for her own car. Lindsey had been fixated on this for the last week, going through the job listings in the paper, trying to do odd jobs in the house, anything she could to make a little more money. Babysitting came up, as did with most girls her age, but that wasn’t enough. She really wasn’t the kind of girl to work at a dingy burger place, smelling of grease and burnt meat. She cringed at the thought, and even more at the thought of her friends seeing her in an embarrassing uniform down at one of the fast food joints. But, if it came to that Lindsey would do it, she really wanted that car. She just hoped it wouldn’t come to that.
Lindsey pushed hard off the ground, swinging higher into the air before launching herself off and getting on her way. She took one last look back, watching the little kids with their parents coming from school to play. She remembered the times she came her when she was younger with someone who was like a sister to her.
Lindsey took the small path off to the side of the park, and then cut through someones back alley before finally arriving on her street. She could see her house coming into view, but her attention turned to the house next door and the car that was parked there. Suddenly excited, Lindsey quickened her pace, then started running as she realized who’s car it was.
She approached the driveway, panting slightly trying to catch her breathe. Her eyes darted back and forth, scanning through the cars until she saw who she was looking for standing at the door looking back at her.
“SAM!” Lindsey cried, both loudly and excitedly, rushing to said person and wrapping her arms around her tightly.
“Hey there kiddo, how are you?” The older girl replied, playfully rubbing the girls head.
“I’m not a kid anymore thank you very much,” Lindsey said in a mock irritated tone, “I’m turning fifteen soon you know.”
“I know, look at you,” Sam took a step back giving Lindsey a once over, “I swear it was just yesterday when you were chasing after me in diapers.”
The girls hugged tightly once again, as the parents of the two joined them outside of their houses.
Sam and Lindsey’s family have lived next to each other for as long as Lindsey could remember. Their parents were old friends, who just so happened to end up living next door to each other. Sam, age twenty three, and Lindsey, almost fifteen, had grown up as close as sisters.
The families made pleasantries before Lindsey’s mother, Karen, invited them all over for dinner so they could catch up.
Sam had just graduated from the local college with a degree in English literature. She even graduated at the top of her class, with offers from many other colleges and universities to continue her graduate studies in. Even though she had been living at home while attending college, Sam and Lindsey hadn’t really seen each other in well over a year, besides the odd hi and byes they exchanged before they both went their separate ways.
“So how long are you going to be home Sam?” Lindsey’s father, Mark, asked.
“Actually not that long, I’m moving out.”
“What!” This came as a big surprise, especially to Lindsey.
“Yeah, just across town, it’s closer to the university I’m going to in the fall and just right down the street from the restaurant I work at.”
“Well, here’s to Sam,” Mark said, holding up his glass, “Cheers.”
“Cheers!” Everyone replied, except for Lindsey who sounded off with more of a tiny squeak.
Without so much of even an excuse me, Lindsey ran off from the table after that, locking herself in her room.
The others at the table exchanged worried glances with each other, the people here were more than just neighbours or friends, they were like family. Sam excused herself from the table and hurried after the distraught Lindsey.
She walked down the familiar hallway to the last bedroom on the left. Hanging on the door was a small paper craft sign, spelling out Lindsey in big, bold, bubble letters, each in a different colour and decorated with stickers and glitter. Sam couldn’t help but sprout a smile as she ran her hand along it, remembering the time so long ago when she and Lindsey made that sign, she had one identical to it with her own name still hanging on her own door, even to this day.
“Hey kiddo, you in there?” Sam called, knocking lightly on the door.
“I told you, I’m not a kid anymore.” A voice respond weakly in between light sobs.
“Can I come in?” Sam said softly.
There was no answer, but the door opened revealing Lindsey with a tear streaked face. Sam pulled the girl into her arms and hugged her tightly like when the girls were younger. Even with the eight year difference, Sam wasn’t that much taller than Lindsey and she was sure that Lindsey would be taller than her in a few years. Any random passerby would assume the girls were really sisters, they had similar facial features like the same vibrantly green eyes and their hair were both a deep shade of brown. Sam wasn’t much to fuss with her hair, often just throwing it into a loose ponytail that reached the small of her back. Lindsey was a bit more particular, her hair showing clear signs of stylist work including light blonde highlights and cut short into a fancy due.
Sam guided Lindsey into her room and sat her down on the bed. She couldn’t help but glance around a room she had spent much of her younger years in, watching over the same little girl sitting next to her. Even with Lindsey growing up, Sam would always see the little girl that followed her everywhere.
“I’m going to miss this room.” Sam spoke up.
Lindsey, still tearing up, silently crying to herself managed to responded, “Do you have to go? You just got home.”
“Linds,” Sam said, wiping a tear off of Lindsey’s check, “I can’t just put life on hold. We’re growing up, we can’t just goof around like when we were kids. I still have to pack, set up my new apartment, and I need to work as much as possible before going back to school.”
“But we haven’t even seen each other in so long, can’t you stay even just a few days?” Lindsey said in between sobs.
“Well how about this,” Sam said straightening herself up, “I’ll be here all day tomorrow, but I need to pack. So how about you come help me?”
Lindsey finally met Sam’s eyes with her own, a look of “Yeah right,” clearly displayed on her face. Sam couldn’t help but laugh at seeing it.
“Now that is the Lindsey I know, not this little cry baby who has been taking her place until now.”
Lindsey smiled before playfully shoving Sam back. Her eyes opened wider, showing her glee, but the clear indication of crying was still there.
“Fine how about this, I’ll pay you to help me pack.”
Lindsey thought about this for a second, she was looking to make a little money, plus she would get to spend the whole day with Sam. It was almost to good to be true, but Lindsey had another idea. With a hint of a mischievous smile, Lindsey couldn’t help but ask.
“Well, only on one condition.”
Sam cocked her eyebrow, “Oh, and what is that?”
“I get to raid your closet for your old clothes!” Lindsey said pouncing up, her face lit up erasing any thought of the previously sorrowed girl.
Sam laughed once again, “You got yourself a deal.” She pulled Lindsey into a close embrace once again, goofing around and giving her a noogie like she used to. The girls spent the rest of the night catching up, reminiscing about old times and reminding themselves just how close sisters could be.
I decided to try something new with this and writing this right before posting and instead of in a word processor straight on the forum. The reason being is that if anyone remembers my brief stint at writing “The Babying of Haruhi Suzumiya,” I have this tendency to start writing and keep putting off from posting it because I keep re-editing it. So this way, I actually get to posting it and getting out for people to read, which is what I intended for it in the first place. I’m also going to be using this story as a writing exercise to get me into a better habit of constantly writing, so please if I stop posting start messaging me to continue, that is if you like the story of course. Anyways, I would love to hear what you think of my writing, I’m always looking to improve my writing and would love to get some constructive criticism. Like I said in the beginning, it will take a couple chapters before I get to any real diaper content, so I hope people enjoying reading this and will want to keep reading until then.
