Hello!! If you were invited to this studio and you don't like reading and/or you don't take studio invites you don't have to accept. This is @BelleGamer123, some of you might know that I'm an aspiring author and I come up with some pretty cray-cray ideas when it comes to stories. I got an idea for this story just a few days ago. Inspiration for this studio comes from @Painted_Serenity, please check her out! Please tell me what you think and be honest!
Jane McCallister usually liked subway transportation. Today was the first time she had ever dreaded what was waiting for her when the train stopped.
Something serious had happened in her fiance Joel's family that required him to go off and stay with them for at least a week, and since Jane hadn't met any of Joel's relatives, Joel took Jane with him.
Jane pushed her honey-colored hair out of her eyes and pulled out her phone. She saw she had a notification that her best friend Brianna had texted her. She gave a soft sigh of relief, knowing now however much crazy things got while her and Joel were with the relatives, she would have Brianna to talk to.
Brianna: Hey girl! Where u at?
Jane: Hey! I'm on the subway right now we're on our way to see Joel's relatives.
Brianna: Ok me and Devin r going to trivia tonight hope we win!
Jane: Good luck!
As Jane hit, "send" she heard and felt the train slowly stopping.
"Ready, hon?" Joel said, grabbing her hand.
"I guess." Jane muttered.
He squeezed her hand. "It'll be fine." He assured her. "I'm sure they'll like you."
Jane took a deep breath as she stood up and slowly walked to the door. It slid open and her and Joel walked out.
Jane looked around frantically for a group of people that might be Joel's relatives.
"Mom!" Joel said happily after a few minutes, walking over to the strangest looking group of people Jane had ever seen.
There was what looked to be his mom, who was a tiny little lady with puffy white hair that made her quite tall. She was wearing a hot pink cardigan around her waist, along with a copper-colored blouse, a short, very red skirt, and nearly knee-high stilleto boots. She had a very nice face, and her lips were coated in 10 different shades of lipstick.
There was a tall, young woman standing next to her, with a very high blonde ponytail, a hot pink tube top, aqua green short-shorts, and pink running shoes.
She had stern blue eyes, and her lips were caked in hot pink lipstick.
Beside the two women was a guy who looked exactly like Joel, but older, with messy, silvery hair, and glasses. He looked like the dad in a 1960's TV show, to say the least.
His mother beamed when she saw Jane.
"Oh, Joel!" She said. "is this your fiance?"
"Yes, mom." Joel said, trying to sound sentimental, but Jane could tell there was a twinge of embarassment in his voice, probably because the hundreds of other people in the subway station could easily see this usually private scene.
"In all my years..." His mom said, "I never dreamed of my son marrying an old family friend! Just wait until I tell this girl's father! Of course, dear, if you haven't already."
"Yes, I've told my father." Jane said. "I'm Jane, by the way." She smiled.
Joel's mom flinched. "Your father, Harold Lawnmower, as far as I know, does not have a daughter named Jane."
Jane took a deep, calming breath.
"I'm a gal from the McCallister family." She said.
As his mom started to say something, Joel took the lead on the conversation again. "Mom, why don't we start heading home? it's, uh, getting late. Long journey, y'know."
"Oh, of course!" His mom said. "Yes, lets' go."
She shuffled out of the subway station, the rest of them following.
"Lawnmower?" Jane said to Joel when the rest of the squad was far enough ahead of them.
"Yeah." Joel said. "The Lawnmowers are a family mom and dad have been friends with for a hot minute. They have a few girls... "
"How far away is the car?" Jane said, looking around. "We've been walking for a decent amount of time now."
"I think the car's over there." Joel said, pointing to a small old blue truck.
They entered the Relatives' house
a few hours after they left the station. They had stopped for dinner where Joel's mom
