AN: Here's the sequel I promised you! Just one thing before you read it. For those of you who might be wondering, yes, Tim is a transvestite as an adult. His style is more like Lafayette from True Blood, minus the scarves and hats. All characters belong to Richard O'Brien, except the ones I created.
It was an exciting and emotional day for the Furters. It was Tim's first day at Denton University, and his parents and sister were helping him get settled into his dorm room. The Horror family, Rocky, Columbia and seven-year-old Keith Orpheum (KO for short), stayed home. They'd said their goodbyes to Tim before he left, and they thought they should give the family some privacy.
"Now, are you sure you have everything you need?" Janet asked as she flitted anxiously around the room.
"Relax, Mom. I didn't forget anything." Tim smiled and continued unpacking.
Janet gave him a small smile. "Sorry, honey. Anyway, if there's anything you need, just let us know. Your father set up your monitor, so..." Her eyes went wide and she turned to Frank. "You did, didn't you? And you checked it to make sure it works?"
Frank stood in front of her, putting his hands on her shoulders. "Janet, everything's under control." He kissed her on the forehead. "You seem more nervous than Tim right now."
"I know." She buried her face in his chest. "I'm just not ready for this."
Tim walked over to his parents. "Mom, I'll be fine. I'm nineteen, not a baby anymore."
"You'll always be my baby." Janet hugged him.
"What about me?" Twelve-year-old Mina asked jokingly as she looked up from the box she was unpacking.
Janet smiled at her. "You're both my babies."
"Well, I think that's everything." Tim looked around the room, checking to see if everything was in the right place.
Frank looked around. "I think you're right. We'll get going now." He hugged Tim, getting a bit choked up. "Remember, you can reach us anytime you want."
"I know, Dad." Tim smiled at Frank, then turned to Janet. "Bye, Mom."
Janet tearfully kissed her son on the cheek. "Be good, okay?" She hugged him tightly.
After Janet had finished hugging Tim and stepped aside, Mina flung her arms around Tim's neck. "I'll miss you!" She bawled.
"I'll miss you too, little sister." Tim smiled at her. "We'll talk all the time, though, and I'll come home once in a while. It's not like I'll be gone forever."
Mina's expression changed from sad to hopeful. "You'll come home for my birthday, right?"
"Of course!" Tim grinned. "I wouldn't miss it for anything!" He tweaked her nose.
"Good!" Mina rubbed her nose. She thought about how she'd even miss the nose tweaking, and started crying again.
Tim walked his family to their truck and waved as they drove away. When he could no longer see them, he went back to his room. Sitting on the bed, he started thinking about all the new experiences he'd have, and he wondered what life would throw at him.
