[pic http://i.imgur.com/BadadMJ.jpg] A pen tapped impatiently on a desk as the woman holding it tried to figure out what to write. It was difficult for her to find the words and she had no idea how she was supposed to tell him that she was leaving. She didn't have the nerve to do it to his face because he had quite the temper. The last time she upset him he smashed up her house and shortly after that somehow he had convinced her to move in with him. Perhaps she was too scared about what he might do if she said no to him.
Autumn could almost hear her heartbeat echoing as she wrote the words on the paper. She knew that he had the money to find her if he wanted to, but she really hoped it wouldn't come to that. Seth had made his money by investing generously into the afterlife, Elysium being the most recent success. Autumn couldn’t quite understand the concept, not really agreeing with the ability to prolong life in such a way. It was all people seemed to care about these days, upgrading themselves while they are alive and finding a way to live forever. It seemed unnatural to her. She chewed down on her lip as the words started to flow but her handwriting was slightly off by the shake of her hand. She was nervous and she had every right to be. Once she signed her name she rose from the desk and eyed the packed suitcase on the bed, her eyes beginning to fill with tears. She shouldn't have let it come to this.
Her hands came to rest of the handle of the case but as soon as she closed her hands around the handle, she heard the door open and close. “Autumn? Are you ready?” His voice echoed through the oversized halls of the house and the panic instantly set in. Apparently, it had taken her longer than expected to write her letter because when she looked at the watch on her arm, she had completely misjudged the timing. She picked up her case and made her way to the bedroom door. If she was quick enough, she would get out of the back door. However, he was already at the door and she ended up colliding with him. Seth took hold of her arm and laughed a little. “In a hurry? You’re not even ready! He said as he started to look over her and then his eyes settled on the case in her hands. “What is this?” He let go of her arm, pushing her back into the bedroom as he looked around at the empty wardrobes. “You’re leaving me?”
“Seth please. This…this isn’t working. Just let me go.”
“You don’t get to tell me when this is over. You don’t get to leave me.” He grabbed the case from her arms and threw it across the room as he took hold of her arms, his grip tight enough that he was sure to leave bruises on her arms. “I didn’t want to have to do this, but you leave me with no choice.”
Then there was blackness. She couldn’t even open her eyes. She couldn’t feel anything, and she couldn’t hear anything. The only emotion that had come over her then was confusion and fear. [I Where am I?] [center ------]
[pic http://i.imgur.com/YsCrXIo.jp] [b “Wait up!”] A male voice, desperate and out of breath called out just as the door of the train was about to shut. Usually, he wouldn’t stand a chance but today was he lucky day because a woman pressed the button to release the doors, giving him enough time to jump on the train before it puled away from the platform. Relief swam over him and he held on to bar overhead since he could already tell there would be no where for him to sit.
[b “Thank you!”]
[I “No problem. I know what your boss is like. You’d be docked a whole hour just for being two minutes late.”] The man looked at the woman with confusion for a moment.
[b “How did you…?”]
[I “Chase…your work badge. I can recognise an Elysium work ID anywhere.”] She said with a smile as Chase looked down and realised that his work ID was hanging around his neck. He chuckled and nodded and that was mostly it for the exchange between the two. Most people knew Elysium so it was hardly surprising that she recognised the logo.
Chase was one of the in-experience guides. He essentially uploaded people into Elysium, helped them come to terms with where they were and helped them throughout their time there. He was getting a new charge today and he didn’t want to be late for that because he knew that his boss would kick his ass if he screwed up the upload. The journey there was a short one since the trains were so fast these days, so he was arriving at the Elysium station within ten minutes and waved to the woman as he jumped off the train. He was on time. [I Thank God.]
Chase clocked in and made his way to his desk, pulling up the Elysium interface the moment he sat himself at his desk and got to work looking through the files of his upload. [b “Autumn…hmm it’s seems you have some damaged memory files here.”] He spoke to himself out loud as he looked through the last day of her life. Every single one of them had been damaged. [b “Curious…must have been a trauma.”] He said as he looked at the cause of death which stated she had received a head injury. Totally valid explanation for that then! He got to work uploading her to the system and slowly started to bring the woman around.
[b “Autumn, my name is Chase. I’m one of your charges. Don’t open your eyes, just listen to the sound of my voice. Autumn, you are in Elysium. Try to relax for me. Everything is going to be alright.”]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "Penelope! What the fuck are you doing in there?"] came the sound of her little sister's voice. The dark haired female looked at herself in the mirror and let out a small sigh. She had her blades out on the counter top, and she had been thinking about cutting into her skin to help take the pain in her heart away. [#7D3C98 "Nothing Odette. I'll be right out"] she called back. She heard the huff of the woman, and then her footsteps down the hallway. Her heart was hammering inside of her chest as she looked at herself.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She had just found out that her so called boyfriend had been cheating on her. Her so called best friend at the time, was the one he was sleeping with. She had called the other over to talk about some things for college, and she had been left alone with the other's phone. That's when she started scrolling through the messages like she normally did, and she spotted a name she knew all too well. It was Jackson's name, and the messages they had been sending back and forth broke her heart. She shook her head lightly.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She turned the water on in the sink, and then splashed her face with the cool water. She then reached for the towel, dried her face off and shut the water off. She then put the blades back into the packet, and slid it into her back pocket. She then made sure everything was in the right place, and then opened the bathroom door. She heard Odette in the living room talking to someone. She was kind of curious, so she made her way towards the living room and stopped dead in her tracks.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#7D3C98 "What are you doing here?"] she hissed between her teeth. Jackson and Charlotte were both standing there with sheepish looks on their faces. She didn't want either one of them here. Odette looked between the three, and then excused herself from the room. [b "We need to talk"] Jackson said in a small voice. Charlotte had her arm around Jackson's waist, and that pissed her off even more. She shook her head not saying anything. She was hurt, and she wanted nothing more than to have them both out of her house. She didn't say anything at first.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "I know Charlotte and I should have told you what was going on, but I didn't have the heart to break things off with you. I really didn't. I honestly don't know what to do with myself right now"] the male admitted. Penelope laughed a bitter sound. [#7D3C98 "You cheated on me, with my so called best friend. What more is there to say? I know where I stand with both of you"] she hissed. Charlotte's eyes locked on her's, and she shook her head lightly. [b [i "I'm so sorry Penny.."]] she breathed out.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b [i "I wasn't meaning to fall in love with him. I saw the way you were treating him, and we started spending time together. He told me so many things, and I just fell really hard for him. I knew it was wrong, but I couldn't really stop myself. You haven't been treating him the way he needs to be treated"]] she said her voice shaking a bit. Penelope's heart was shattering inside of her chest. Were they really going to blame her for all of this? She had done [i everything] for Jackson.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#7D3C98 "I don't know what he told you, but I hope to God you both will be happy. Get the hell out of my house"] she hissed. The two looked at her with sad eyes. They both knew it was pointless to even try to do anything. They both turned and left the house. Penelope walked over and locked the door behind them. She leaned against it, and closed her eyes. She pushed herself away from the door, and made her way to her room. She still had the blades in her pocket. She locked her bedroom door, and let the events unfold.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [center [b [i Three Months Later.]]]]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 It's been three months since Penelope had killed herself. She had locked her door, and Odette had to pretty much break the door down, and when she was finally in the room the sight before her, shook the other woman to the core. The sound of her screams, tore Penelope apart. She had slit her own throat, and laid there bleeding out. The woman shook her head lightly as she heard voices around her. She had been uploaded to Elysium because Odette didn't want to lose her sister fully. Something Penelope didn't think was right at the time.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Since she had been uploaded, she felt slightly like herself. She knew that Odette was controlling her, and sometimes it felt right. Other times it didn't feel right. She sighed as she looked out at her sister. That's when she saw Sawyer behind her. Her heart seemed to skip a beat seeing her old childhood friend. She wanted nothing more than to reach out and touch him. She wanted to feel his arms around her, and she wanted to tell them both how sorry she was. She was sorry too. She hadn't meant to hurt either of them.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She reached up and touched the screen that was separating herself from her loved ones. She bit her lower lip lightly when she heard her name being called. She looked over her shoulder at one of the other's in Elysium, and she turned away from the other two. [#7D3C98 "What's going on?"] she asked lightly. [b "There's someone new coming, and I feel like you should be the first one she meets besides Chase, her charge"] the woman said. Penelope shrugged lightly as she wrapped her arms around herself. She might as well do something.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#7D3C98 "Sure, do you know when he'll be done uploading everything? Where is she right now?"] she asked. [b "Chase is talking to her right now, and she should be here soon"] was all the other said. Penelope didn't need to be told twice. She walked with the other to one of the buildings where the newcomers would always arrive in. She took a seat, wrapped her arms around herself and waited to meet this new person. Hopefully something good will come out of all of this. She didn't know what would happen, and she sure as hell wasn't going to admit she was slightly nervous about it.]]
