It was clear the Claudia had given up hope and Kit thought that was very sad. It was important to never give up hope! Kit was a perpetual optimist even when things were going very wrong, like last year when she’d accidentally spilled the potion in potions class and then everyone had to tell the truth all the time. Telling the truth was important but sometimes it was just as important to not tell the truth, which was a lesson that Kit had only kind of learned. Like it was important to tell Connor that he was a butthead even though he was Rose’s little brother, because he had been mean to Drew and then Drew had gotten into trouble. Not a whole lot of trouble because Kit was pretty sure Rob didn’t believe in that and Rob was Drew’s advisor since both of his dads were the people who would have usually been his advisor, but still trouble.

Anyway it was important that Claudia not give up hope especially when it was in the best interest of their older siblings. Didn’t she know that it was her job to do this for her older brother?

Oh. Maybe Claudia thought that break-ups were forever because she’d totally been dating Connor last year and now she wasn’t because he was a butthead for real and not just secretly. It was probably good for that break-up to be forever. Unless Claudia could somehow make Connor redeem himself by becoming a superhero or something like that. But Kit was pretty sure that Claudia wasn’t a radioactive spider or anything and that was the only real way you turned into a superhero. Mostly superheroes were born with superpowers or they got in a lab accident. Not like the kind Kit had made. A different kind.

“It’s okay,” Kit said solemnly, patting Claudia reassuringly on the shoulder. “Marissa is different than Connor so it will be okay. She’s really great. Like, super great. And Danny is a really good alien experiment. They’re perfect!”

            Good grief there was no predicting what would happen next in any situation where Kit was involved. Claudia was suspecting that any sort of logical reasoning was going to be a complete waste of her... more
