This is how Kay tells it.
One upon a time, my family was happyâ€”notice how I said ONCE. Donâ€™t get me wrong, I love Krag and Nightshade, but Iâ€™m talking about my biological parents. My dad married my mom; he forgot to mention that he was a prince of a country called Danland, and of course marrying a prince comes with obligations. For those of you like Krag, who donâ€™t understand a word Iâ€™m saying, it means providing a strong heir. Meanwhile the Duchess of Gisborn was moving in on my dad. When I was born a few months early, they thought I wouldnâ€™t be up to the challenge of ruling. When my mom wouldnâ€™t provide another heir, they banished her. My dad went with us, back to Mobius and started playing the part of a regular father. A few months after I turned three, he left to go back to his own kingdom. A new lifeâ€¦without usâ€¦ and with the duchess of Gisborn. Hereâ€™s a time line to help you out:
Four months passed, I slept without a nightlight.
Six months passed, Mom taught me how to ride extreme gear
A year passed, we moved to a smaller town.
Another year passed we found Nightshade and adopted her.
A week passed, I started going to school
A month passed, my uncle started teaching me how to play guitar.
Another year passed, my momâ€¦died in an accident.
Nine years past, we move back to Mobius.
Five months past, I meet my new best friend.
