One Saturday, when his father was out of the house on business and his tutors were gone for the weekend, Teslin was exploring the house when he found a half-open door, one that was usually locked. Peeking inside, Teslin saw his mother inside what appeared to be another child’s bedroom, except the toys and outfits all seemed to imply that a girl stayed here. Confused, Teslin stepped inside and confronted his mother, and although she was startled and hesitant, she quietly told him about the sister he never knew, who died in an accident before Teslin was born. The mother often visited the room to remember the daughter that she loved dearly, despite how her husband distanced himself from them due to his desire for a male heir. Teslin was saddened by this story, but he couldn’t help but remain fixated upon the items around the room and how they seemed...more fun to play with and to wear.
A few weeks later, Teslin was still curious upon the toys and clothing he saw in that room, and he made a decision to get back into that room unnoticed. Whenever his father and tutors were gone and his mother was elsewhere in the house, Teslin would steal the key from its hiding place and secretly enter the room. Once inside, he would change out of his tux and into one of the cuter dresses that had caught his attention and then play with the toys in the room. Teslin found himself having more fun and feeling more comfortable with these toys and clothes than anything his father ever got for him. After playing for an hour or two, Teslin would switch back to his tux and leave everything the way he found it to avoid suspicion.
After a month of weekly play sessions in this room, Teslin was caught by his mother after she noticed the key to the bedroom missing. Embarrassed and now ashamed to be caught in the clothes of his late sister, Teslin immediately started to change out of the dress, apologizing and asking his mother not to punish her. His mother was silent for a while, but to Teslin’s surprise, she instead asked him if he really liked wearing the girl clothes and playing with these toys. When Teslin hesitantly admitted to it, his mother then asked if he would like to try on more clothes and if he would be willing to try some other things as well. Teslin was confused by his mother’s offer, but he agreed, feeling excited about the support his mother was giving him.
Over the next couple of years, Teslin tried on many more outfits, including dresses, skirts, blouses, and other girly fashions and loving many of them. In addition, Teslin allowed his mother to help brush and style his hair and treat him like the daughter she lost, and both of them found happiness in these activities. With his mother’s support, he continued to read fantasy books in the safety of the private room. After a while, Teslin began to write his own stories for his mother to read, and as a fan of literature herself, she gave Teslin positive feedback and encouraged him to continue doing what he loved. Teslin was much happier living such a life as this, the depression caused by his father’s desires all but evaporating. They were careful to keep these private times unknown to Teslin’s father, however, knowing that he would be furious if he were to find out.
Despite the care they took to avoid detection, Teslin and his mother were discovered one day when his father came home early after a good business deal. Catching his son wearing a dress and reading one of his written stories to his mother, his father furiously pulled the dress off of the boy, sternly yelling that no heir to his company should indulge in such outrageous behavior as this. Teslin cowered away a bit as his mother and father then began to argue. His father accused her of trying to corrupt their son while the mother defended her position and Teslin, saying that he should be able to live the life he wants to live even if it isn’t the life his father wants him to have. In anger, the father struck her, affirming that Teslin was no replacement for their lost daughter and that she would not be allowed near Teslin anymore. Having rushed to his mother’s side after she was hit, Teslin lost his nerve after this, now joining in on the argument and yelling how much happier he has been with his mother, wearing girly clothes and being allowed to do the things he wants to do. Teslin then let it off his chest, something he had been certain about for a while now, that he was much happier as a girl and wished that he had been born one instead. Infuriated by his son’s outburst, the father proceeded to beat the son as well, only stopping when the mother dived on top of Teslin to protect him. Deciding that he had made his point, he gave them a final warning and left the room, making sure to tear up the son’s story as he left.
The next month was strained between Teslin and his father, the latter keeping a closer watch over Teslin and making sure that the boy had no chance to diverge from his intentions. His mother was kept locked in a separate wing of the manor, only allowed to see the servants and the father and not allowed anywhere near Teslin. Misery set in once again as Teslin was forced to please his father, and he slowly began to lose hope for that glimpse of a brighter future for himself. At the end of the month, however, a surprise turned his life around when his mother filed for both a divorce and custody of him. Despite the father’s protests and the best lawyers he could afford, the courts ruled in favor of Teslin’s mother, and with half of the family fortune and her son, she moved to Solaceon Town.
Now safe in the quiet Sinnoh town, Teslin and his mother quickly settled down and resumed their activities from before their long separation. Teslin was given everything he could ever want to pursue his loves and interests, including his own wardrobe of cute clothes, including undergarments. Having expressed his desire to live life as a girl, Teslin was offered a way to change his gender by his mother, and he accepted it. Hormone therapy started a week later, and Teslin became Tesla, as far as she and her mother were concerned. However, her mother still desired a quality education for Tesla and for her to make some friends. Thus did she look for a place where Tesla would be safe from people who might detest her for her gender and especially from her father. Realizing that the prestigious St. Mortiel Academy was just a city away, Tesla’s mother wasted no time in applying her daughter for enrollment.
