By WickedLove-

Caelum and Male Two have been super close friends since they were in Jr. High School. They would do everything they could to get the same classes, and they would spend their whole summers together. That was until they both turned eighteen and that's when they both decided to join the Army together. They knew they would be on different Army Squads, but at least they were doing something they loved. They were protecting their country, and their families at all costs. Both of their worlds were about to change, and it's something they were looking forward too. Even though their mother's didn't want them leaving, they weren't changing their minds about it. They were going to go into the Army, and that's the end of that.

Winter and Female Two didn't really know one another, they had run into each other on the streets, and they didn't like one another at all. They were both in the same college classes as well, and when they were put on the same project, they had to put their differences aside. Their project was looking up someone in the Army to write too. They had been out in the field for a good month or two, and they were supposed to write to the soldier's, and send them care packages whenever they could. That was something neither female wanted to do, until they found out who they were writing too. Winter was writing to Male Two, and Female Two was writing to Caelum. Something neither of them expected. The two soldier's were excited though to get more letters, and getting to know more people outside of their families.

As the letters started getting more and more deep, and personal was when Winter and Female Two made a promise to themselves. They weren't going to fall for either of the men. They were in a different country, fighting to protect them, and they couldn't cloud the men's thoughts with anything romantic at the moment. Little did they know, Caelum and Male Two only signed up for a year. They weren't going to do it all of their lives, unless they felt the need too. As the men were getting to know the women, they wanted to know more. They started asking personal questions, such as if they had a boyfriend, or if they had children, or if they were looking for something romantic. Both females were starting to feel slightly uncomfortable about the whole thing.

Even though their project was finally done, and they had gotten the top grades, because they had gotten pictures of the men, and pictures of where they were stationed. As soon as the project was over and done with, the women broke off writing letters. Winter ended up moving to a different city, and Female Two ended up moving a few blocks over. They didn't get anything from Caelum or Male Two ever again. The moment the letter's stopped coming, made Caelum and Male Two feel like they had done something wrong. As they two were coming closer and closer to the end of their duty, they both decided it was time to meet the women they had fallen in love with. Even if they didn't feel the same the moment they were face to face, at least the four would be able to close this chapter of their lives.

The moment that the two friends end up moving back home, they did their own digging. Male Two finally found Winter, and ended up going to her city and finding her, was when he felt like a dream was coming true. Winter wasn't expecting to meet her soldier, but deep down she wanted too more than anything. Caelum ended up moving in right next door to Female Two, and that's when their relationship had started. What'll happen to these four young adults? Will they finally feel like they found the love's of their lives? Or will they end up breaking contact all together? You will never know unless you join, Homeward Bound.

The cast of Homeward Bound.

Caelum Lorcan; Taken

Male Two; Taken

Winter Dixon; Taken

Female Two; Taken

What I need from you.

When asking to join this role play please send me a Private Message titled Homeward Bound, and inside of the message I would like you to send me this small skeleton. I promise you it's not that hard, but please make sure you have all of the information I'm asking for. This is what I'm needing you to send to me.

Picture Links {Do not fully link them} || Character Names {First & Last} || Likes {Five Total} || Dislikes {Five Total} || Dream Job {Pretty Easy} || Personality {Three Positive & Three Negative} || Family History {100+ Words} || Biography {100+ Words}

See, that's not too hard. Just make sure you send me everything I'm asking for. If you don't send me everything, and I have to ask you twice I will deny you the spots all together. If you have any questions at all, don't be scared to ask them. I promise I'm not too mean. Now onto the lovely rules.

The rules of Homeward Bound.

First- The pictures are going to be real. None of the over used shit either. If it's too big, I will ask you to resize it to a smaller size. If you can't find one to your liking, simply message me and ask me for help. I would be more than happy to help you look, or edit your picture for you. Just don't get mad at me, if I ask you to change/edit it.

Second- Romance will be a big part of this story, but not at first. Just like in real life you have to work up to it. It's not a love at first sight type of thing. Cybering is a no on this site, if you want to keep the story line going, then we can move this to e-mail, or just skip it all together. That won't happen for awhile though, so we won't need to talk about that right away.

Third- Joining and then ditching is a no. If you don't like where this role play is going, simply message me and we can plot something out. Or if you are simply bored of it, and don't want to do it anymore, simply message me and tell me. I won't be mad if you get tired of it. Just if you join and then never post, is when I will be slightly annoyed with you. So please, at least talk to me about leaving the thread.

Forth- Plot twists is a must. I love plotting things out, and see where we want it to go. It's not that hard to become my friend either. So if you have something in mind, and wanna run it by me, all you gotta do is message me and be like 'Hey! I have an idea, and I just wanted to see what you thought about it!'. Because honestly I will do the same thing to you, so don't be surprised if you get messages from me about ideas.

Fifth- Stealing this idea is a no. It's something that's important to me. If I see anything like it, or someone stealing the main idea I will make it known you stole it from me. I have worked hard on this idea, and if you like it that much, ask me if you can borrow it. Just make sure to give me the credit for it. I will most likely say yes to letting you borrow it, as long as you ask me first.

Sixth- Posting. I know we all have lives outside of this site. I work full time, and sometimes on my day's off I'm not always on until later that night. So if you need a couple of days to post, I'm okay with that. If you are gonna be gone for a week or two, please let me know because if you don't, then I'll think you ditched out on me. I will do the same thing for you as well. If I can't post, or having a hard time I will make sure to let you know.

Seventh- Doubling is required. As you can see I'm playing one male, and one female. I would like you to do the same. If you insist on playing only one role, and one role only, then I will deny you the spot. I'm doing this to make it fair for the both of us. Sometimes you have to come out of your comfort zone a little bit, push yourself a little bit farther. It's really simple.

Eighth- Please for the love of God don't message me over and over asking when I'm gonna post. That's something I really hate, and it get's on my nerves when that happens. I like to take time on my posts, and I like to make sure it's the way I want it. If you see me online, I'm most likely working on my post, and making sure it's done right. If I take two weeks to post, that's when you can message me and ask what's going on. Other than that, do not bug me to post, and I will not bug you to post either.

Ninth- I love details inside of my role play's. I can post well over 1,000 words. Yes I said 1,000 words. That's only if I have the right partner, and if I have a lot in my head for a post. For this story though I'm only looking for about 500-600 words a post. If I need to put a posting limit I will. Anything less than that, and I will lose interest, or it'll take me longer to post because I don't have anything to work off of. So please don't make me put a posting limit.

Tenth- Now that I'm done sounding like a total bitch, I want this to be enjoyable for the both of us. That's what writing is about anyway. Having fun, and making something beautiful together. So please enjoy writing with me, and let's make something amazing, and see where this will lead.

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Caelum and Jaxson had been attached to the hip since they were in Jr High, all through their High School years pretty much. They were like brothers, and they did everything together. So of course they would end up signing up for the Army together. Caelum hadn't dreamed of that. He shook his head lightly as he looked towards the other male. [#D4AC0D "Are you sure you wanna do this? Cause once it happens, there's no turning back"] he said with a small smirk. He himself wasn't about to turn back though. When his name was called, he walked up to the table, butterflies in his stomach.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 A piece of paper was put in front of him, and he leaned down and signed his name. Everything was finally falling into place for the male. His whole life he had wanted to do something with his life, and now he was. Even though he didn't think it would go far. He then stepped out of line and let Holland do his thing as well. When they were done, Caelum walked out of the building and into the hot air. He sighed a bit as he looked towards his best friend.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#D4AC0D "Looks like you and I are finally going to make something of ourselves. I guess I should head home and tell the family that I finally did it. Text me later, and we can go to the bar for awhile"] he said as he walked towards his car. He then unlocked it, and slid in behind the wheel. His heart was hammering inside of his chest. He couldn't believe he had finally done it. He was finally doing something useful. He would be gone for a year, to two years depending on what happened.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He just had to figure out how to tell his family about it. He sighed lightly as he pulled away from the curb, and headed into town. His family were either going to be proud of him, or were going to disown him. Either way, he wasn't backing out. There was no way in hell. About thirty minutes later, he was pulling into the driveway, and he put the car in park. He shut the car off, and sat there for a moment. He was scared to go inside, and tell his parents. He knew his aunts would be proud of him.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He sighed lightly as he took a deep breath and climbed out of the car. He made sure the car was locked, and he slid the keys into his pocket. He walked up the front steps and unlocked the front door. His mother was the first one to spot him. [b [i "How did it go sweetheart?"]] she called out. The male shrugged lightly, as he closed the door behind him. [#D4AC0D "It went okay I supposed. I signed up though"] he said, wondering how she would react.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b [i "Are you serious?! Honey! I'm so proud of you! Your father should be coming home soon, and you can tell him the good news as well. Are you and Holland going to go out and do something?"]] she asked him. The male laughed lightly and shook his head. [#D4AC0D "As soon as I find out he told his family, yes I think we are"] he said. The older woman walked over, and hugged the male tightly. [b [i "I am so proud of you sweetheart. I really am"]] she said kissing his cheek.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 The male hugged his mother tightly, and held onto her a while longer. He was kind of scared to even leave her, but he knew he wouldn't have much choice. He pulled back and kissed her forehead. Right when the two pulled apart his father walked in the door. He looked between his wife and son, and raised a 'brow slightly. [b "Did I miss something?"] he asked looking between the two. [#D4AC0D "I signed up for the army today"] he said lightly testing the waters. His father stood there and looked at him, and then smiled.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "That's wonderful to hear son. You and I will have to sit down and really talk about this"] he said as he hung up his coat. The male nodded lightly. [#D4AC0D "Alright"] was all he managed. [b [i "I'll work on making supper. Let me know if Jaxson is coming over"]] she said. The male pulled his phone out and quickly sent a message to the other male. [#D4AC0D [i Mom wants to know if you'll come for dinner. The door is open if you do.]] He then hit send and went upstairs to his bedroom.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 So far everything was going smoothly. But he was slightly worried about what his father needed to talk to him about. He sighed lightly, as he fell onto his bed, and he pulled a pillow over his face and left it there. Everything seemed to be going well, he just needed to get everything else in order before telling the rest of his family.]]

If there was one thing that Jaxson was sure of in his life it was that he and Caelum were always going to be friends. They had been thick as thieves since junior high. After they had meet in school there was a bond that formed between the two of them. It was something that Jax was thankful for. Maybe what they were doing was rash- or crazy- but it felt right to be doing something for the better of his country. Not to mention how else was he ever going to be able to afford any sort of future for himself. 

[+forestgreen "As sure as I can be,"] he said glancing at his best friend. Jaxson watched and waited as the other male stepped forward. This was it, this was the next step in their journey and who knew where it would take them. They were both aware of the risks associated with signing up. When it was his turn to approach the table he quickly made his way up. He fluidly signed his name on it not letting himself second guess what he was about to do. 

The man chuckled as he waved to Caelum, [+forestgreen "Yeah, I will see you later then."] Then he started to make his own way towards home. Where he knew his mother and sister would be waiting for him. When he got inside the door he placed the keys in the bowl hearing a small thunk as they hit the bottom. The first thing that greeted him was the picture of his late father- dressed in his military uniform. He missed his father every single day and it might have been a contributing factor into why he decided to join himself. 

[+forestgreen "Ma,"] he shouted into the house trying to get a bearing on where she might be. He was answered moments later, [b "In here dear!"] He made his way to where he judged her reply had came from. He found her seated on the couch a book propped against her knee, [b "How did it go?"]

He took a seat next to his mother on the couch before answering, [+forestgreen "Well I signed up. So did Caelum."] His mother smiled lightly at him, [b "Your father would be proud of you, Jaxson."] He hadn't realized how much he was hoping to hear his mom say it until she did. It filled him with a sense of pride. [b "Though Haileigh might be cross initially I am sure she is proud of you as well. Just as I am proud of you,"] his mom said lightly laying her hand on his shoulder as she spoke. 

Jaxson sighed, he knew the person who would be most against this was his younger sister. She didn't quite like the idea of him putting himself at risk. He knew it was because they had lost their father and she wasn't ready to lose the person who had become a father figure in her life as well. [+forestgreen "Yeah I will talk to Hails..."] his thought was cut short by the sound of his phone going off. When he looked he saw that he had a message from Caelum, [+forestgreen [i Yeah sure, I'll be there shortly. Just got done telling my mom]] he wrote back. 

[+forestgreen "I hope it's alright, I am going to go to the Lorcan's for dinner,"] he stated as he pulled himself out of his seat. His mother nodded, [b "Yeah that's alright, you going out afterwards?"] she asked him, to which he nodded, [+forestgreen "Yeah probably. Well or maybe not- I want to talk to Haileigh sooner then later so I might come home tonight after dinner."] He then made his way to the door to grab his keys before leaving. At the most maybe he would go for one or two drinks after dinner. 

A short while later he was on his way to his friends house. The drive took about twenty minutes total until he was pulling up to the Lorcans. He made his way out of his car locking it behind him. Once he was at the door he knocked waiting for an answer.

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 The male was getting more and more nervous. He knew that his parents were pretty much putting up a front. They were worried about their only child leaving the nest, let along signing up for the army so to speak. When he got the message from Jaxson about dinner he walked into the kitchen to let his mother know. [#D4AC0D "Jaxson will be coming. He's on his way right now"] he said with a warm smile. [b [i "Perfect! Go ahead and set the table will you?"]] she asked. The male nodded lightly as he gathered up the plates from the counter.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He walked into the dining room and set the table like his mother asked him. He all of a sudden felt like he was making a huge mistake. Was he really making the right choice here? He knew that he was, but deep down he had a bad feeling. He sighed lightly as he shoved those thoughts aside. He finished setting the table, and as he did there was a knock on the door. [#D4AC0D "I'll get it"] he called out, and made his way to the front door. He opened it and grinned.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#D4AC0D "Hey, sorry mom really wanted you over for dinner. I know you should be at home with your mom and Hails, but I couldn't really tell momma no"] he said as he stepped aside letting the other male into the house. He shut the door behind him, and turned towards the living room. [b "Jaxson my boy!"] came the sound of his father's voice, and sure enough the older male came around the corner and walked up to the two men, and hugged Jaxson. [b "I'm so proud of you"] he said clapping him on the shoulder.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "How did your mother take it? Does your sister know?"] he asked. That's when his mother came into the hallway as well. She wiped her hands on a towel and walked over and hugged him as well. [b [i "Oliver, stop with all of the questions. I know it's hard on both boys, they don't need you badgering them"]] she teased. She then kissed Jaxson's cheek lightly. [b [i "I'm really proud of you Jaxson! I know your father would be as well"]] she whispered in his ear. She was there when the Brooks family got the word.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Caelum rolled his eyes at both of his parents. He loved them both so much, and he was just glad that Jaxson loved them just as much. [#D4AC0D "So I was thinking after dinner, we go back to your place and spend some time with your mom and Hails. If that's okay with you. I don't think I wanna go out to drink tonight"] he admitted. He normally would, but deep down he wanted to see and spend time with his second mother, and his so called sister. Jaxson was like a brother to him.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b [i "You three go into the living room and get comfortable. Dinner will be ready in about 45 minutes or so. Making a lot of your favorite's tonight to celebrate"]] she said as she hugged Jaxson one last time, and pecked his cheek again, before going back to the kitchen. Caelum led the way into the living room, his father following after both of them. Caelum sat on one end of the couch, and leaned his head back. He was glad his mother didn't want to throw a huge party. It was a lot to handle already.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He didn't know what he would do with a lot of other people around. He knew that sooner or later word would get out, but right now it was nice just to spend this time with his family, and best friend.]]
SoulDreamerbound   118d ago

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Hina+Mincho]
[+forestgreen "It's not a problem. I couldn't leave without spending time with my second parents as well,"] he joked lightly to the other male. There wasn't much more time to get any words in edge wise as soon arms wrapped around him. A look of surprised passed quickly over his face as Oliver wrenched him slightly off balance in his bear hug. Jaxson chuckled slightly, [+forestgreen "Thank you, sir."] 

Once he had righted himself again he turned to his best friends father, [+forestgreen "Yeah, I went home to tell my mother shortly before coming here. Unfortunately, Haileigh wasn't home yet so I am not sure that she knows yet,"] Jaxson sighed out scratching the side of his face, something he was told he did when he felt nervous. One of his tells as Caelum had put it back when they were younger. Soon another figure shuffled into the entryway chiding her husband slightly before Jaxson felt the slight press of a kiss on his cheek. Jaxson smiled at the woman before giving her a soft hug as well. Perhaps it was because their moms were best friends that made her sentiment mean the world to him. God he hoped his dad would be proud of him- that he wasn't making some colossal mistake and dragging his best friend down with him. 

After he was done listening to the plan that Caelum laid out he grinned. [+forestgreen "Yeah man sounds great to me,"] he replied in turn. It was almost natural how close the two families were to each other- in a way that made them just one giant family. Though there was a point in time when Hails got mad every time that him or his mom referred to Caelum as her brother. Eventually Jaxson learned it was because she had developed a sort of crush on his best friend. It was cute in a way, definitely great material to make fun of her with. Thankfully she grew out of it though- though sometimes Caelum could make her blush still. Even though Haileigh was only two years younger than them to Jaxson's knowledge at least the crush was never reciprocated. It seemed that Caelum sort of saw Hails as his sister as well. 

Jaxson felt one more hug before he was being sent off to the living room. He walked in tandem with Caelum into the room. Finding a seat on the same couch as the other male. Neither of them had told anyone outside of their families yet which made it all exist in a sort of bubble. It was better that way- they could at least for the time being spend quality time with their families and each other. Fingers crossed they would both end up being able to at least have each other while they served for the short time that they were allotted to. But that didn't make the idea of leaving their homes any easier. 

[+forestgreen "I think Hails might kill me..."] he mused as he interlocked his fingers behind his head resting his head against his hands. [+forestgreen "Well she might admonish me then kill me."] His joking tone was obscured slightly by the slightly worry that played on his face. He was more concerned with how she would react- she had said on more than one occasion that she never wanted to lose another loved one to war.

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Caelum looked towards the other and nodded lightly. [#D4AC0D "I mean, she does have the means to do so. She might end up killing the both of us, and using her friends to help bury our dead bodies"] he said with a small teasing note. Oliver clicked his tongue at the two men. [b "She might be a little upset, but I think in the long run she'll understand why you both are doing it. I know you are wanting to make your father happy son, and I know for a fact he is"] the older man said lightly.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 The mood in the room seemed to get more somber, and Caelum didn't like it. He looked towards his dad and realized he was living in a world far away from here. Their father's had served together for awhile, but Oliver had been discharged before the other male, because he had ended up getting hurt, and badly. Caelum remembered that night all too well. His mother getting the call, and she had to get his ass to his grandmother's so she could watch him. At one point he thought he was going to lose his dad.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Instead it had been Jaxson who lost his dad in the end. He felt horrible but he knew that the other man had died serving his country, and making a name for himself. He sighed lightly when he looked up to the doorway. [b [i "Dinner is ready, I'm sorry for intruding"]] the older woman said softly. She saw the look on her husbands face, and Oliver shook his head. [b "It's alright my love"] he said and stood. The couple walked out of the room leaving the two younger men alone for the time being.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#D4AC0D "Ya know, I feel like we are doing the wrong thing. I know it's too late to back out, but I know dad is worried about the both of us. I know Hails is going to be really pissed off.. Do you think we did the right thing?"] he asked. He didn't know if it was wise to voice those thoughts, but he was curious as to what Jaxson thought. He could smell the food from the living room, and it was making him hungry. He wasn't about to move from his spot though.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He looked at the male beside him. [#D4AC0D "Let's make a pact right here and now. If we don't end up in the same place together, we will try and check up on each other whenever we can, and if something does happen we tell each other's families"] he said softly. He didn't want his parents to overhear, but that's the one thing he was kind of worried about. He fell silent to see what the other thought. He knew nothing would happen, but it was better to be safe than sorry. At least if something did happen to him, his parents would be up to date.]]

Jax grinned as Caelum joined in on the banter- at least his best friend understood how frightening his sister could be. And not just her but her friends as well. Man he felt bad for any person that crossed her. Then again it was good to know that his sister could handle herself especially when he was going to be gone for awhile. Then there was a noticeable shift of energy in the room. Jaxson shifted his gaze towards the older male who already was looking into the past. His gaze didn't quite connected with anywhere in the room, Jax couldn't help but wonder if the man was thinking of his late father. 

It was then that a sinking feeling washed over him. Military service had affected both families greatly- even more so it had affected both the men who were part of it. What had they gotten themselves into? Jaxson didn't want to imagine a world in which Caelum got injured or even killed because of their pact to do this together. He wasn't sure if they had even thought this through- had they both just acted on some impulse to want to make their families and countries proud. No, he remembered they had conversations about this all. It wasn't just a spur of the moment decision. But yet he still couldn't shake the worry now that they had made a mistake. 

Soon Caelum's mom had called into the room saying dinner was ready. Without a word needing to be said the two parents left the room as if knowing that Jaxson needed a word with his friend alone. Then, slightly unsurprisingly, Caelum voice the worries that were in Jax's head as well. [+forestgreen "I hope not,"] was all Jax could say in response his face clouded with concern. [+forestgreen "I can't lie, all of this has me worried now too. But we have to believe that it's going to be alright. That we will do our year and then we will be back with our families."] He chewed on the inside of his cheek lightly after he finished speaking. 

At first all he could do was silently watch his best friend after the other male started to tell him to make a promise. He hadn't really let the idea of the two of them not being stationed together enter his brain but he knew that the other had a point. After all there was a chance they wouldn't be able to be together through this all. [+forestgreen "I promise man, but let's hope we will be together,"] he responded. After he spoke he stood up making his way towards the kitchen, he walked by Caelum letting his hand fall on his friends shoulder, [+forestgreen "Come on we shouldn't leave your mom and dad waiting."] he said with a small smile.
