The Higgs - Ch. 2

title_page2.jpg



Higgs_45.jpg

In the last chapter, the twins got accepted into a private school.

Hadron: So, how was your first day at the new school?

Atlas: I'm so glad to see you, Dad!


Higgs_46.jpg

They also welcomed a new addition to the family, Haddie.


Higgs_47.jpg

Atlas: When you said we were going to to a private school, I thought you were sending us to a boarding school.

Alice: What on Earth gave you that idea?

Atlas: Well, you had Baby Haddie right before... I thought you wanted to get rid of us.


Higgs_48.jpg

Alice helps Haddie to the cake, she is entranced by the flickering glow of the candles. Do we have a possible pyro in the making here?


Higgs_49.jpg

Happy Birthday, dear Haddie...

Atlas refused to sing along, but gleefully chimed in at the end - you look like a monkey, and you smell like one too.


Higgs_50.jpg

The boys study Haddie objectively, maybe she's not so bad after all.


Higgs_51.jpg

Looks like someone is all partied out.

Higgs_52.jpg

Alice returned to the newspaper as an obituary writer, and Nerissa Bendett was hired on as the children's nanny.

Nerissa: [rapping]
If there's a task that must be done,
Don't turn your tail and run,
Don't pout, don't sob,
Just do a half-assed job!



Higgs_53.jpg

School was cancelled due to snow, and the boys took full advantage of this.


Higgs_54.jpg

Justin: Hey, wanna play?

Seamus: Stay away from Justin, he's got cooties.


Higgs_55.jpg

Hadron was up for a promotion soon, and spent his vacation time hard at work. He was developing a 'Smart Milk' formula to increase learning by fusing the green fluorescent proteins (GFP) of a jellyfish's genes to a child’s genes. Afterall, seafood is considered brain food. Unfortunately, it had an alarming side effect, green glowing skin.


Higgs_56.jpg

The Higgs had a very special guest come visit them on Christmas Eve.


Higgs_57.jpg

Santa: Have you been a good boy this year? Ho ho ho, I know, I always know!


Higgs_58.jpg

While the kids head off to bed, Hadron and Santa discuss some serious business in the bathroom.

Hadron: Please, help me, I really need this promotion.

Santa: While I may be able to make reindeer fly, I'm afraid nuclear powered tots is a little out of my league.


Higgs_59.jpg

The Kims invited the Higgs over for their annual New Years Eve party. Justin, to the annoyance of others, banged on an old pot all night long waiting for the New Year to come.


Higgs_60.jpg

Headmaster Kim: [singing off-key] Schooooool's out... for... summer winter. Schoool's out... for... ever!

Cynthia: Ok, no more Hot Toddies for Vince.


Higgs_61.jpg

Policeman: I found Chase here, wandering around the streets kicking over trash cans. I was surprised when he turned out to be one of our own. I'm afraid I'm going to have to break up this party, it seems a little out of hand.


Higgs_62.jpg

Thanks to Chase Hart, the party was over before they could say Father Time. What a way to make friends.

Robert: Thanks for coming, I hope you all had a splendid time.


Higgs_63.jpg

Today was the twins' birthday. On the way down to breakfast, Seamus hugged his bear extra tight and left him in the hallway - surely little Haddie could use a friend.


Higgs_64.jpg

The bathroom was a very popular place durring the hectic mornings.

Hadron: Well, helllllo beautiful!


Higgs_65.jpg

With everyone rushing around, no one heard Haddie's cries, and she soon figured out how to
bust out of the playpen herself. The first thing she did was find a bottle from the night
before.

Haddie: Om nom nom nom...


Higgs_66.jpg

Then, she told old Mr. Bear all about it. I don't think that spoiled milk sat too well in her fragile little system.


Higgs_67.jpg

The local fortune teller dropped by, with what appeared to be a birthday present for the
twins.


Higgs_68.jpg

But, really, it was just an old lamp for Haddie. For Haddie, really? She quickly tiptoed away as everyone returned home for the day.


Higgs_69.jpg

Hadron's colleagues were less than impressed by the toxic tots, and started to fear for his sanity. As a result, Hadron was demoted, and sent back to field research.


Higgs_70.jpg

Unsure what others might think of his dad now, Atlas called up all his friends for the birthday party, just to make sure they were still coming.


Higgs_71.jpg

Katrina: I'm only here because my mom made me come.


Higgs_72.jpg

After the initial akwardness, the kids all got along famously.

Katrina: Wheee... gimme another push!


Higgs_73.jpg

Alice and Hadron rounded the kids up for cake, just as Atlas clocked Justin really good with the pillow one last time.


Higgs_74.jpg

Hadron started everyone off on a round of "Happy Birthday" for the boys.


Higgs_75.jpg

Seamus got embarrassed, and hid behind his mother.


Higgs_76.jpg

The boys made their wishes, and bid their childhood farewell. Just as Atlas was blowing out
his candles, the clock struck 6:00 and both twins grew up at exactly the same time. I
couldn't have timed it better if I tried!


Higgs_77.jpg

Clothing aside, the boys grew up well.


Higgs_78.jpg

Everyone had a fantastic time, with no fights, or cops. Probably because Chase Hart couldn't
make it.


Higgs_79.jpg

The boys, with gift cards in hand, set off for some more stylish duds.

Atlas: You think this will look pretty pimp on me?

Seamus: You'll look like the ice cream man.


Higgs_80.jpg

Atlas: Here's my gift card, and my phone number. *wink*

Jacqueline: That was like, so funny, I forgot to laugh.


Higgs_81.jpg

Seamus: Look, the boards are 40% off. *snickers*


Higgs_82.jpg

Still feeling a bit of resentment about his last haircut, Atlas decided to get something a
little more "him".

Atlas: What the... ? You screwed up my hair AGAIN!!!


Higgs_83.jpg

Seamus: Oh God, here we go again. I'd better go grab a Snickers bar, I think it's
going to be awhile.


Higgs_84.jpg

After perfecting the 'Smart Milk' formula, Hadron finally got the promotion he wanted, and a
big bonus to boot. Life couldn't get any sweeter for him at the moment.


Higgs_85.jpg

Hadron tells Alice the good news, and they fantasize about their future.

Atlas: Ewww, take it elsewhere! No one wants to see that!


Higgs_86.jpg

Alice: That Atlas, he's so sensitive sometimes.
