Jeff was just your average teen, about halfway through puberty, and not really too extraordinary. He was in his school's GT program due to his creativity, but they were very not selective. His younger brother Liu was the baby, always being cooed over by his mother, while Jeff was his father's favorite. Their entire family was fairly normal, just a few things that set them apart. For example, Jeff and Liu's father, Robert, was an ex-marine First Lieutenant with a Silver Star and Purple heart. Both Jeff and Liu were ever so slightly above their grade level, and both had a certain amount of creativity and reasoning that formed a golden ratio. Their mother was just an average stay at home mother, who was a little over caring and often smothered her children. A nice, normal family living the American Dream.
The family was moving to New Port, Pennsylvania because their dad got a promotion in his job at Kennametal. Jeff and Liu were a little upset at this, as they had both been doing well at their school and had a good group of friends, however they understood it would be better for the family in the long run. They both helped with boxing, loading, unloading and anything else there was to be done, all the while saying their final goodbyes to the friends they had made over their two years at Hartons. They had hardly finished unloading all the boxes of stuff when a woman and child in very nice clothing approached the boys' mother.
"Hello! My name is Jannet and I live right across the street. This is my son Kobe." she said putting a hand on the boys shoulder. Kobe seemed the same age as Jeff, maybe a little older. The boy said hello and told them he was turning 14 on Saturday.
"I'm Jeff, and I turn 14 in two weeks." said Jeff the boy.
"Cool. Maybe we can hang out some time." was the reply he got back.
"Yeah, ma..."Jeff was interrupted by Kobe's mother
"Would you all like to come to Kobe's party on Saturday? It's okay if you're busy, I was just asking." said Jannet. Jeff and Liu had started to find reasons to object, as they didn't want to intrude with Kobe and his friends, how ever their mother accepted the invitation for him, making an RSVP before even seeing a card.
The next day, Monday, would be Jeff and Liu's first day of school at New Port Intermediate for Liu, and New Port Junior High for Jeff. They both slept feverishly as anticipation was the only things on their minds. In the morning, they were both awakened by their mother,
"Jeff. Liu. Wake up you two, you have to get ready for school." she said from the doorway. They both trudged awake and moved to the closets. Jeff pulled out what he had unpack, a pair of blue jeans (His favorite pair), a plain black t-shirt, and a white jacket white thin grey squares on it(His favorite Jacket).
