A/N: I am rewriting my twin story,but it is set Pre-Narnia when they are five years old and starting school. Patty's oldest in this she's also bolder than Peter.
Disclaimer: If I owned anyone besides Patty I'd be rich as it happens I am not so obviously I don't own a side note I was watching Silver Chair while typing this and I notice that Jill is taller than Eustace even though they're the same age.
"Come on,Peter wake up!" Patty cried pulling her twin's arm,she was very excited today they were starting school and she didn't want to waste one minute,Mummy had bought them each a brand new pencil box with a new yellow pencil and a brand new box of crayons.
"I don't wanna go." Peter said ,unlike Patty,he didn't want to go to school,that meant being around other children and Peter was very shy,unlike Patty who was very outgoing and bold.
Patty dropped his arm and slid in next to him,taking his hand in hers,"It'll be fun,Mummy even said it would be,so'd Daddy and they wouldn't lie to us ."
"B-but,what if the other kids are mean to me."Peter said.
"They won't be,I know."Patty said confidently.
When they got downstairs,they found Mummy at the stove ,four year old Susan was entertaining one year old Lucy and three year old Edmund .Daddy was reading the paper.
"Are you two excited ,today you start school." Daddy asked lowering the paper as Mummy came over with the platter of eggs and bacon.
"I wanna go too!" Susan said very much put out,it wasn't fair that Peter and Patty got to go to someplace as exciting as school.
"I go too!" Edmund cried not even having a clue what school was,but if Peter ,Patty and maybe Susan got to go to this mysterious place ,he wanted to go too.
"Only Peter and Patty are going to school,you two are still too little."Mummy said wiping Lucy's hands.
"Not fair."Susan pouted.
"No fair." Edmund echoed
"Fair!" Lucy echoed happily slapping her chubby hands on the high chair tray.
"You two better hurry up or you'll be late." Mummy said glancing at the jumped out of her chair and Peter followed more slowly.
"Now make sure you pay attention and don't wriggle and speak up and listen to your teacher."Mummy said kneeling down and buuttoning up Patty's raincoat,Peter was struggling to put on his wellies.
She gave them both a kiss and hug and watched as they trotted hand in hand down the walk and out the gate.
The school was a very imposing three story brick building ,the play yard was filled with children of all ages and sizes,some big some little and some in between.
Patty looked around and dragging Peter with her marched right through the gates and made a beeline for the swings.
"You swing on that one."Patty pointed to the other empty swing .
A bigger girl came over ,hands on her fist."That's my swing." she said meanly "Babies like you aren't allowed on."
Patty gazed back at her even while Peter who was scared of the big girl got off the swing,he was afraid the girl was going to hit his twin .Patty wasn't the least bit frightened even if the girl was bigger than her.
"We were on here first and were going to swing." Patty said firmly gripping the chains .She started swinging .
The teacher was very pretty even Peter who didn't think anyone was as pretty as Mummy thought so,she had light blond hair styled in a roll at the nape of her neck,blue eyes and dimples when she smiled at the class. She had each of the children come up and tell the class about themselves when it was Peter and Patty's turn it was Patty who did all the talking.
"I'm Patty,this is Peter,were twins and were five.I came out first and Mummy says that makes me the oldest,I like green and Peter likes blue. We have three younger siblings at home." Patty prattled and would have talked some more if Teacher hadn't put her hand up.
"Perhaps you're brother would like a chance to talk." she said kindly.
Patty looked at Peter,then the teacher and stated ,"Him don't talk,Mummy says him is shy."
"Perhaps he'd like to,would you like to share something with the class." she asked kindly.
Peter stepped closer to Patty gripping her hand tightly and shook his head.
Teacher nodded ,"All right then." she said .
School wasn't that long at twelve 0 clock all the children were dismissed and they ran outside at the gates mothers were waiting for their children.
"Did you have fun.?" Mummy asked as they ran toward her.
"Hello Mummy." Patty chirped ,"School is ever so fun and we have a very nice teacher,she gave us biscuits and ,milk for snack and we painted and did loads of fun things."
Mummy turned to Peter,"Didn't you have fun."
Peter nodded,"I liked it,but there was a mean girl who wouldn't let us go on the swings."
"She didn't scare me." Patty stated ran ahead jumping in the puddles,"Come on,Peter jump with me.!"
Peter dropped Mummy's hand and ran after his twin. Helen watched them ,perhaps it was because she was older,but Patty had always been the bolder of the two of had even hit all the milestones first,she was the first one to walk and the first to was quieter and more reserved than his plunged headfirst into was more cautious even when they were babies and toddlers,Patty was the one who climbed out of her cot or slid down the slide headfirst at the was funny how even though they were twins they were as different as night and day.
