Strange Urges

It was a quiet morning when the young woman stirred from her sleep. She turned to her side and peered upon her alarm clock finding she had a few minutes left before it went off. It was always like this on the first day of a new school year, but today was her last one until she decided to go to college. Today would be the start of her final year at high school.

She sat up and turned off her alarm knowing she wouldn’t need it. Her next action was to change into her new uniform. She would have worn her original but she grew in the last couple of years, filling out more like her mother each day. Then she moved to her dresser and peered into the window, she swiftly brushed her red hair and tied it into two long pigtails. Everyone at her school said she was too old for them but they made her feel comfortable; as if she wouldn’t be herself without them.

-I know this is inappropriate but she has to be legal by now.

She knocked on her brother’s bedroom door on her way down to the kitchen causing the sign written with the word ‘Winter’ to shudder and shift slightly. Luckily for her, waking him up for school has become easier over time. He didn’t need to be bashed or dragged down the stairs.

“I’ll be down soon sis.” His groggy lifeless voice came through the wooden door.

The girl merely nodded to herself and continued downstairs. She made a simple meal of eggs and toast on two plates. She grabbed hers and stepped outside through the sliding glass doors. She sat on the stoop and ate.

-Alright so the frogs should be showing up any minute now right?

“I see you’re eating outside again.” The young boy said looking out to his sister. Unlike her he sat at the table and ate his food. He was wearing his own uniform that she took very good care of; making sure it would last through his three years of high school. He only had two years left but he also had a habit of ignoring his chores and anything not related to the occult and paranormal.

-Any minute now.

“I don’t know why but I feel more at ease out here. I can think clearer.” She looked around at the empty yard but paused at one part in particular. She secretly had this odd urge to set up a little camp there with a tiny fire pit.

-Wait where’s Giroro’s tent? Why aren’t they freaking out about it?

“I know how it feels. I’m the same way with the room in the basement. It’s like something important is supposed to be there, but it’s not.” He looked down at his plate thinking about the basement room. He had a secret urge as well but only to fill the room with gundam models and manga. This was especially odd to him since he wasn’t all that interested in those things.

-I’m going to take a wild guess that the aliens are gone. What would the show be without them though?

“You don’t think that there might be something wrong with us do you?”

“Of course not. There might be a few improvements you could do to yourself but I’m exceptional at almost anything I try.” The young woman stood and gestured to her-self feeling beautiful and proud of what she grew up to be. “I could get into any college I wanted really.”

“Natsumi, I don’t think that being really smart excludes you from being insane.”

“Take that back Fuyuki! There’s no way I’m going insane. It might just be a part of growing up in this little world of ours. Paranoia must be up by millions from just ten years ago.” She walked back inside and set her empty plate in the sink. “Anyways it’s time to go to school.”

-It’s like they forgot about them completely. Can someone tell me what’s going on? I mean I am the Narrator I should know what’s going to happen way before the audience.

“Alright.” Fuyuki stood and cleared his plate quickly shoving the rest of his food into his mouth. He placed it in the sink and followed his sister to grab his shoes and bag. Soon they were off to school.

-I skimmed through my notes from before and recalled one other episode where everyone forgot that the frogs even existed. Back in episode 51 the platoon thought they were being called back to their home planet and erased the memory of their time on earth. Maybe it really happened this time? Did the invasion end and I missed it all? I'll have to read this as it goes and see.
