I’d love to go on a holiday or something. I need a break from being in a superhero family. I’m not going to get one for ages though. And even if I did get to go on holiday, my family would all come with me. Which kind of defeats the purpose of it.
When I am older and get to go to college, I’m going to go to Galway or Limerick or England or even to the States. Somewhere far away from Dublin, where nobody will know that I’m a Power. I might even change my name. Suzie Power is an OK name, but it’s nice to have options. Here are some possible choices for grown-up, free-from-Powerhood me.
- Begonia Stubblebrows. (This isn’t a real one, but it kind of suits how I look at the moment. It is not pretty.)
- Lydia Martin. (This is the sort of no-nonsense yet glamorous name a part-time model would have. Lydia Martin wouldn’t just be a model, though. She would also be a scientist. A practical one who works in a lab and does research and never saves the world.)
- Maria Macy. (Or any name where the first name and the surname start with the same first letter. JP tends to get muddled and switch them, and with a name like Maria Macy, even if he did switch them around he would still be right. I would still want JP to visit me, you know, when I grow up and move. And Mum and Dad. Pucker could come with me if he liked. I’m not a monster. I just would really like a peaceful life.)
