27-year-old Jamie and 18-year-old Kati headed to the maternity store at
Jamie's request, although Jamie wasn't quite sure why. She did know that
her stomach felt weird ever since she looked at that guy.
The two were unaware of course both of Jamie's previous existence as Jim and of the fact that they were slowly, but much faster than normal, aging -- Jamie two years for each one that Kati did.
Kati separated from her sister inside the store, looking through racks of baby clothes.
"Why are we even here," thought Kati. "It seems silly, like we're jumping the gun a bit."
"Gun." Why did that seem familiar? Kati shrugged it off, as she passed the threshold to 19. All of a sudden, she heard Jamie scream.
Katie rushed over and, surprisingly, found the now 29-year-old sitting on the ground with a baby girl about a year old.
"What happened?" Kati asked.

"Mommy, I want to go on the carousel," Nikki said as her aunt dressed her.
"I don't see the harm in that, sweetie," Jamie said.
"In the meantime, I've got some clothes to exchange," Kati said. "Why don't we meet in a half hour?"
"Sounds good," Jamie said, and the three went on their way -- Jamie and Nikki to the carousel and Kati to inexplicably (to her at least) exchange the clothes she just bought for larger ones.
They met a half hour later as planned. The group dynamic had changed yet again. 21-year-old Kati was greeted by 33-year-old Jamie and 7-year-old Nikki, who was complaining that her clothes felt too tight.
