My name is Kaitlyn Equidae and I am the Generation 11 heiress.

I had a wonderful childhood.   I had a mother who adored me and always had a hug ready whenever I needed one.

My father though older was probably my best friend.  He taught me how to play chess when I was about 7 years old.  By the time I was 10 I could beat him occasionally and by the time I was 12 I was letting him win sometimes.   But we always had fun together.

I would also play chess with brothers.  I could usually beat them too.

My parents were loving and supportive.  They encouraged my love of science.

Even when I messed up and almost set the house on fire.

By the time I was 14 I was excelling in fields like math and science.

I also knew by this time that I wanted to become a doctor one day.  Even though I knew I still had four years of high school left I was already filling out applications for college scholarships.

I also loved reading anything I could find about science or the medical field.  There was nothing that was going to stand in my way of becoming a doctor.

I didn’t just study.  I had friends.  My best friend’s name is Sarah and we would get together and do typical teenager things like go to the mall and talk about boys.

I also hung out with my older brother Kaden and his girlfriend Jamiee.  They are both seniors and I am a freshman.   They were great at helping me navigate my first year of high school.

Kaden and Jamiee both have birthdays in May and so at the end of the school year we threw a joint party for them both.

He will always be my goofy older brother but I guess some would say he is handsome.

Jamiee at least seems to think so and said yes when he asked her to marry him.

Not wanting a big fancy wedding the two got married in small private ceremony.   Afterwards they moved out leaving just mom, dad, and me in the house.

Over the summer I attended a science camp and competed in a science fair.  Following my presentation the judges awarded me the grand prize.   Which was an opportunity to spend three months of my sophomore year studying in China.

I had just turned 15 that summer and wasn’t sure I wanted to go.  I didn’t want to leave mom and dad alone.  But on the other hand I knew it would look great on my college applications.

Mom and dad said I should go.  They had been spending a lot of time with their grandson Leeroy – watching him after school while his parents were still at work.  So I guess they have him to keep them company.

I also figured Mom and Dad were looking forward to having the house to themselves for awhile.  It has never been just the two of them before.

So I packed up and headed to China.
