That fixed it! Thank you.
Aged to 12, happy birthday Avery
Backstory, added new paragraph
Relationships, Avery is growing to like the people in town a bit more
On the age thing:
Zark and I talked. I'm allowed to age Avery when I see it to be a good time to do so. Up till 15 years old. I plan on doing this slowly over time. Mostly slow I can still have him learn/grow but also trying to balance weird time nonsense of him getting older while rest of town sits still lol.
