Note; Please do not request into the thread other wise. This is going to be an extremely mature role play. If you are under the age of
then you will be denied the spot all together. I'm tired of people not reading everything, so please make sure you are either eighteen or older, thank you.

Star light, star bright, the first star I see tonight, I wish I may,
I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.

Four adults have been living in their own personal hell's for years. They didn't know what it was like to have people supporting them, or what it was like for other's to know about their secrets either. That's until one night while wishing on a star, they all make the same wish. The next day a letter arrives on their door steps. No return address, and no name for who sent it. Only an address if they wanted to meet up with other's dealing with different issues as them, and if they want the support from total strangers.

As the day progresses, each person feels like they need the change. They need to feel the support from other's, and they want to see what the world has to offer. They pack up a bag, and then leave in the dead of night, or the next morning. When they meet up with each other, they feel a connection with each other. Something that's never happened before. What'll happen when relationships are formed? Will they let the other's into their fucked up lives? Or was this all for nothing? You will never know, unless you join Starlight Gazers.

The cast of Starlight Gazers.

William Winterson; Taken

Vixen Matthews; Taken

Alexandra 'Zan' Moore; Taken

Jasper Harmon; Taken

What I need from you.

This is not going to be a first come, first serve role play. There will be talk of mature topics meaning, Sex, Drugs, and Drinking. If you can't handle that, then please don't apply for this role. I'll be looking for someone literate, meaning you'll take your time to post. So when you are applying for this role, simply send me a message titled
Star Light, Star Bright
, so I know you read this and the rules below. So inside of that message I would like this simple skeleton sent to me.

Picture Links {Do Not Link Them} || Character Names || Character Ages {Twenty-Five & Older please} || Job Title || Likes {Five Total} || Dislikes {Five Total} || Biography

If I have to ask you twice for the small skeleton, and your Private Message isn't titled like I have asked, your message will be deleted, and your character will be over looked. Yes I'm being super fucking picky with this role play, so please don't get upset with me if I ask you to change something. Now please make sure to read everything inside of this thread. If you request into the thread before I tell you, you will be denied, period. Now onto the rules.

The rules of Starlight Gazers.

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 might 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'm asking that we don't wait longer than
10 days between posts
. 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 more days to post after the 10 day limit, 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- We can talk about this having and ending, or we can keep it long going. I really don't mind what we do. As you can see I'm playing four characters, two males and two females, you are
to do the same thing. Sometimes it's a good idea to step out of your comfort zone. If you refuse to apply for all four spots, then I will deny you all together, end of story. I'm doing this to make it fair on the both of us. I will not budge on this rule, period.

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- Please give me something to work off of. If I give you something to work with, and I get a paragraph for each character and nothing more, I will ask you to change your whole posts. I'm asking at least 500-600 words per character. Not a character count either. If I have to ask you twice to change your post then I will have to take you out of the thread and open it to someone else. I would love to have someone help move the storyline along, and throw ideas at me as well. If you need me to change my posts I will. Simply ask me too, it's not that hard.

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 William's mind was racing. He was sitting in the waiting room at the doctor's office, he was waiting for his name to be called so he could finally go back, and get his testing done. His heart was pounding, and he took a deep breath. As he looked around the room, he was surprised to see how calm everyone else looked. Why was he the only one nervous? Then again, he might be the only one who hated doctors. Ever since he found out he has cancer, his whole life was spinning out of his control pretty much.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "William, the doctor will see you now"] the red headed woman called from behind the glass window. William stood, and he slowly made his way towards the door. He opened it slowly, and slipped into a hall. Nurse's were busy with other people, and he made his way to the office of his doctor. He knocked on the closed door, and the older woman answered. [b "Come on in William"] the male took a breath and opened the door slowly. He looked around the homey office, and the woman smiled at him, pointing to a chair.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 The male walked over and took a seat. His hands were in his lap, and he started picking at his nail's. [b "I know you are nervous, I can see it. You have nothing to be sorry for. Your treatment's have been doing wonders, and you have been taking them like a champ. I just wish, you had someone to call whenever you are here"] she said leaning back into her chair. The male shrugged lightly and looked her dead in the eye. Why should she care anyway? He sighed lightly before speaking.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "Honestly, no one would care. My family isn't the best, and I honestly don't mind doing this alone. I'm glad to do it alone. It help's clear my head, and I don't have to worry about everyone else around me. I come in, get what I need done and I leave, simple as that"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "I know you might think that, but what if one day you couldn't handle it? Your body can get weak, and sometimes it's nice to have other's around to help you. It's not hard, but you need to realize that one day, you will need that kind of help."]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "That's the thing Doc, I don't want the help. I found out about this on my own, I've been doing the treatment's on my own, and I will fight this on my own. Now what did you want me here for? I do have places to be."]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "I know.. Alright, I just wanted you to know this week will be your last treatment, and you will be cancer free. With how hard you have fought, you deserve this bit of good news. This will be the last time you see me as well. I'm moving to a different state, and I will forever be out of your hair."]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "Your leaving? Well at least you'll be able to help other's like me. I'm glad that I'm finally cancer free. Thank you for all of the time you have spent with me, and I hope you find happiness in your life. Now I really must be going"] he said as he stood. He didn't even wait for the woman to say anything more. He was cancer free, and that's all he wanted to hear in the first place.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He hurried out of the office, and headed straight to his car. He slid in behind the wheel, started it up, and headed back to his apartment. It was time he moved on anyway. He might as well get his ass moving, and then he would finally be happy, and in a better place.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [center [b [i Present Day.]]]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 It's been a year since William found out he was cancer free, but that didn't stop him from worrying. He would worry day and night about the cancer coming back. His doctor had left a week after she told him, and he hadn't found anyone since. The male was sitting in the bar watching the bodies moving on the dance floor. He shook his head lightly wishing he wasn't here. His best friend and roommate talked him into coming out tonight. It had been a bad idea, but he couldn't tell his friend no, no matter how much he wanted too.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 It was nice being able to get out of the house though, even if it meant he would have to be here. He looked at the bartender behind him, [#b4c8ee "Another vodka and sprite, please"] he called. The bartender nodded and filled his order. His eyes moved towards the dance floor, and he sighed a bit. He placed a bill down onto the counter when the bartender slid him his drink. He downed it quickly, coughed at the felling of the liquid running down his throat, and then stood and headed towards the door.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 His eyes scanned the faces of the people, until he spotted Daniel. He walked over and pulled him aside. [#b4c8ee "I'm heading out. I don't wanna be here"] he called over the loud music. Daniel nodded lightly. [b "I'll see you at the apartment later then, a pretty bombshell caught my eye"] he said with a smirk. William just shook his head, and let his roommate go. He would deal with that later. Right now he wanted out, and he was heading that way now. He pushed though the bodies, and made it out the door and into the fresh air.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 It was quieter out here, and he liked it. He slowly drew the keys out of his pocket, glad he had drove here in the first place. He walked over to his car, slid inside and started the car. He headed home and pulled into the parking lot. He shut the car off, climbed out and walked into his building. He unlocked the door, kicked off his shoes and moved towards his room. He shut the door behind him, undressed and walked to the window and peered out. The sky was getting darker by each second.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 That's when he saw the first star of the night. He laughed lightly as he closed his eyes, and made a wish. [#b4c8ee [i 'Starlight, star bright, the first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight...']] he chanted in his head. He made his wish, and when he opened his eyes, there was a knock on his door. It was strange, but he felt like someone had been watching him. He shook his head, and moved towards the front door.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 When he opened it, no one was there. Just a letter was lying on the mat. He bent down and picked it up before going back into his apartment. He tore open the letter, and pulled out a piece of paper, his eyes scanned over the letter, and then he read the whole thing again.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [center [i Dear reader,]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [center [i You might be wondering who sent you this, and what it contains. I promise you this, this will be an adventure you have been waiting for. There are three other people out there in this world, who is getting this same letter. They are all wishing they had something better in their life, and this is your chance.]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [center [i At the bottom of his letter is an address, and a key code. All you have to do is take a leap of faith, and it will hopefully lead you in the right direction. Happy travel's.]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 There wasn't a name at the end, just the address and key code. Whatever it was, he felt like he had to do something about it. Maybe it would be worth it. He sighed, went back into his room and packed up his things.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He might as well see what this had to offer. Maybe it would be a good thing, but at the same time it could be a scam. Right now he was following his heart, and it was telling him to find these other people. He took a breath and then walked back out. He got back into his car, and drove to the airport. He couldn't help but wonder if he would run into one of the other seven here. Maybe all seven, but he doubted it. One could only wish right?]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Yelling, screaming, cussing, glass shattering made the woman jump slightly. Was this really happening right now? Vixen let out a small sigh as she drew her knees to her chest. She was living with the man she thought she loved. He was drunk off his ass, and he was yelling. [b "Vixen! Get your ass down here you bitch!"] he called out. It made the woman shudder with fright. She wasn't about to go down there, but she wouldn't have much of a choice in a moment. She bit the inside of her cheek as she sat in the corner.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 When she didn't do what the man wanted, she heard his feet pounding on the stairs, and it was like the whole house shook. She heard the door handle rattling, and she started shaking even more. [#B9899E "Please.. Go away.."] she muttered. She put her head into her hands, and squeezed her eyes shut. When the knob stopped ratting she held her breath. He wasn't done with her, and she knew it. That's when the door flew open, and he stormed into the room pure fury on his face. She was done for, and she knew it.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "Why the fuck, are you cowering in the corner? You know damn well why I'm so pissed off, don't you?"] he snapped. She shook her head lightly. [#B9899E "N-no I don't.."] she stuttered slightly. The male laughed bitterly and ran his hand though his dark hair. [b "You might be sexy as hell, but you are a horrible liar"] he snarled. He stormed over and jerked her to her feet. She let out a small scream at the sudden quickness he had. He held her in his hands, and glared at her. Her heart was hammering inside of her chest, and tears ran down her cheeks.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#B9899E "Please Donovan.. I don't know what you are talking about. I really don't.."] she nearly begged. The male just stood there watching her. He didn't know what to do with her right now. He started shaking her, and then drew his hand back and slapped her across the face. Her body fell to the floor, and she whimpered even more. She wanted the pain to stop, and she looked up at him, with pleading his eyes. He shook his head and knelt down next to her.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "You know damn well I'm not done with you, so don't fucking give me that look. Tell me the man's name, that sent you flowers. Calling you beautiful, and saying to leave me. Spill it, right now."]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#B9899E "No one told me to leave you.. I promise you Donovan. He might have called me beautiful, but he never said I should leave you.."]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "You are lying to me Vixen. I know you are, and you know you are. So you might as well spill it all out. The punishment won't be as bad if you do"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She laid there, trying to think of what to say. She didn't know what he was talking about, and yet he was bound to hurt her anyway. She shook her head as she closed her eyes. [#B9899E "I'm telling you the truth..."] she spoke softly. That wasn't the answer he wanted. He stood, took off his belt, and started whipping her. She closed her eyes, willing herself to pass out. If she did, she would feel a lot better, and maybe then she could forget about this hell she was living in..]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Vixen bit her lip lightly trying not to think about Donovan. She didn't know what had made her think of him, but whatever it was, she was worried he would find her. She had made sure she was well hidden, but nothing was working. She was at a loss for words, and she was losing herself even more. She looked at herself in the mirror, and she bit the inside of her cheek. [#B9899E "You are safe, he isn't going to find you. I promise you"] she spoke to herself. She didn't want him finding here, but she knew he would.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She turned and walked out of the bathroom. She shut the light off, and walked into the kitchen. The sun was lowering behind the mountains, and she saw the stars were slowly coming out. She stood by the back door, her arm's wrapped around herself, as she closed her eyes and spoke softly. [#B9899E "Star light, star bright, the first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight..."] she whispered the words, and made her small wish. She opened her eyes and sighed a bit.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She honestly didn't know why she made the wish, but she felt like a little girl again. She moved away from the back door, and she heard a rustle of paper just then. She turned around and spotted the envelope on the floor. Her heart started to hammer inside of her chest. Was someone watching her just now? She hurried to the door, closed it and locked it. She stood there a moment before bending down and picking up the paper. She opened it, and slid the page out and read it slowly.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 The moment she got to the bottom, she was surprised not to see a name at the end. Was this really happening? She bit her lip as she flipped the page over wondering if there was something on the back. There wasn't. She bit her cheek lightly as she read it again. [#B9899E "Where did you come from?"] she muttered lightly. She wasn't about to dwell on it though. If she could get away from here, she would. She walked out of the kitchen, the page in her fingers. She moved to her room, packed up some of her things and then left.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She made sure no one was outside, before she slipped into her car. She started it up, backed out of the driveway and headed down the street. As she drove, she watched as more star's popped out. It was breath taking, and she loved it more than anything. She loved the nighttime, but at the same time it brought up her past. The dark past she had done everything in her power to forget about. She shuddered lightly, wondering if Donovan had anything to do with this. She hoped he didn't. She couldn't be for sure though.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 The moment the airport came into view, she was shaking. She was doing something wild, and out of the norm for her. She might as well see what this person wanted. She pulled into a parking spot, shut the car off and grabbed her bag. She walked into the building, and saw a bunch of other people waiting around as well. She bit her lip lightly wondering if she should leave, or stay. She decided to stay, but she kept to herself as she watched everyone else around her. Maybe this was a bad idea after all..]]

[Hina+Mincho [center [b One Year Ago]]
Zan could hardly hear what her other family members were saying around her. It hardly felt like this was real life. She wanted it to be a nightmare that she would wake up from. That Natalie would be there with her shinning smile asking her if she wanted to go the movies this weekend. Nat had been getting better- even the doctors said it looked like she was on the road to recovery. She had woken up and it seemed like her injuries would heal. The doctors had said it was possible that it would take a turn for the worse but Zan hadn't wanted to consider that possibility. 

It was cruel that someone as good as Natalie could leave the world so young. She had only been seventeen, she had just got accepted to her dream college. Zan was so excited to be the proud big sister at her graduation. A drunk driver had taken that away. 

Zan felt numb as she stared blankly at the gravestone- Natalie Moore, beloved daughter, sister, and friend. It had been a couple weeks since the funeral but she could still hear the sound of her mother wailing when the doctor told them that Natalie had passed. She heard her brother move next to her, [b "I knew I would find you here,"] he said gently. She turned to him, [+mediumpurple "She can't be gone Luke... She just can't."] A arm wrapped gently around her shoulder pulling her close to him. 

[+mediumpurple "Maybe if I had went with her she would still be alive,"] she said through her tears. [b "Zan. It's not your fault. The only person to blame is the driver..."] [+mediumpurple "I wouldn't have let her get in the car if I was there..."] Her brother pulled her into a tight hug, [b "I know, but you can't think like that. Neither you nor I wanted to go to a party full of high school seniors. She wouldn't want you to blame yourself."] 

She didn't say anything more. She knew he wouldn't understand. How did he know that Natalie didn't blame her? Logically, Zan knew that it wasn't her fault. But death wasn't logical. She let tears fall onto her brother's sleeve as her arms wrapped around him in turn. Neither sibling said anything else as they stood there in each others arms. 

[center [b Present  Day]]
Her throat burned as she finished the last of the glass of whiskey she poured herself. Her family had continued to try to snap her out of the rut she put herself in. They had all started to pick up the pieces of their lives they wanted her to as well. Easier said then done. It was like well everyone else had been coping with the loss, Zan was still stuck grieving. 

Zan had never stopped blaming herself and now it was exactly a year that she had lost her sister. Her boyfriend had not been able to handle it. He had left her half a year ago. She didn't blame him. It's not like it had even been a long relationship in some ways she was surprised he had stuck around as long as he did. Thankfully, she had managed to maintain her job. 

Luke had been over earlier that day with their parents. The plan was that they were all going to get together to celebrate Natalie's life. But about half way into reminiscing Zan broke down. They had all been understanding, in fact her crying caused her mother to start crying as well. It had certainly changed the tone of the day though. She knew her family had been hoping sharing memories would be some sort of breakthrough for her. But everyone processed grief differently and she supposed she just wasn't there yet. 

She sat on her couch staring out the window. The sun had already set and the sky was pitch black. She watched as the first star started to show in the sky, guess that was the beauty of living far from the lights of any city. She couldn't help but remember when her and Natalie were just little kids wishing on stars to marry a prince or become president. Zan closed her eyes, [+mediumpurple [i 'Starlight, star bright, the first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight...'] ] Wow, she must really be losing her mind today. 

That was when she heard the doorbell. It had to be her brother, though she wasn't sure why he was back. [+mediumpurple "Luke? Did you forget somethi-"] she started to ask as she pulled open the door. Where she had expected to see her brother there was a letter. She picked it up off the ground before looking around to see who dropped it there. But whoever had rang her doorbell must have vanished. There was no one in sight. It felt strange but still she felt the impulse to open the letter. 

[center [i Dear reader,

You might be wondering who sent you this, and what it contains. I promise you this, this will be an adventure you have been waiting for. There are seven other people out there in this world, who is getting this same letter. They are all wishing they had something better in their life, and this is your chance.

At the bottom of his letter is an address, and a key code. All you have to do is take a leap of faith, and it will hopefully lead you in the right direction. Happy travel's.]]

She carefully read the letter again. This was crazy. Maybe she had fallen asleep, she pinched herself. She felt the small jolt of pain in her arm. Wasn't a dream. This weird letter really had been left for her. She chewed her lip, what did she have to lose? She went back into her room quickly packing a bag of things she would need like clothes and toiletries. She sent a quick text to her brother telling him that she was going on trip. She didn't want him to worry. 

Soon she found herself on the way to the airport. It felt wildly impulsive but she didn't want to cause her family to worry anymore. She wanted to be able to live the life she knew her sister would want her to live. Once she was at the airport she parked her car, and then made her way inside. 

There were already four others in the building. She felt they had to be some of the others that received the letter as well. [+mediumpurple "So you guys also get a weird letter?"] she asked rubbing her arm awkwardly. Supposedly they were all struggling like her, maybe one of these people would understand. But they were still all strangers to her. People she didn't know who perhaps shared a sorrow like hers.

[center [b One Year Ago]]

The male blew out smoke as he rolled his shoulders. He tried to relieve the tension in them. It wasn't like this had taken him completely by surprise. He and Hallie had noticed their mother seemed to be getting sick a few months back. He would have never guessed breast cancer though. [b "Really? You are smoking right after we find out that our mother has cancer?"] he heard Hallie's disappointed voice behind him. She was two years younger than him but growing up with him for a brother had caused her to grow up faster. She often took a parent tone with Jasper, he figured it was because he had sometimes acted reckless growing up. 

[+lightgreen "Sorry, force of habit,"] he said immediately putting it out. He didn't want to incur anymore of her wrath. Smoking was how he calmed down. And he was trying to be calm for his mother and sister. [+lightgreen "It'll be okay."] He was mostly trying to convince himself. Sure he was an adult but he wasn't ready to lose his mother. She had to get better right? People survived all the time. 

Hallie let out a deep breath before hugging her brother, [b "I am scared, Jas."] He rested his chin on the top of her head before replying, [+lightgreen "Yeah me too. Me too."] He rubbed her back. He eventually walked back into the hospital, the doctors still needed to talk treatment with him. Something he knew was going to cost them more than they had. They would have to use some of their savings as well. He took a deep breath- he would do what he had to. He would have to put aside the raw fear that plagued him in order to be strong for his family. 

[center [b Present  Day]]

The past year had been one of the worst that he had ever experienced. He hadn't been able to kick the cigarettes like Hallie had wanted him too. Which in turn caused her to be pissed at him. The one ray of light in his year had been that not too long ago the doctor had said that she was in remission. Unfortunately, it was only a partial remission. Maybe that would change again but Jasper couldn't help but worry that just around the corner was a relapse. 

They barely had any money left after the bills this past year. Not to mention mentally he wasn't sure that he could handle more time of seeing his mother looking frail. She had always been a strong woman. Now when he looked at her across the room he saw someone who looked thin, pale, like the vibrancy had left her body. [+lightgreen "Hey Ma, I have to head home. But let's get you to bed first. Dad should be home soon as well,"] he said as he walked up to his mother guiding her from around her shoulder. 

After getting his mother situated in bed and making sure there was water on her side table he left locking the door behind him. He sent Hallie a quick text sharing how their mother was asleep. He also texted his father the same thing. His sister still lived with their father and mother which he was thankful for. Just until she regained her strength- then Hallie was going to move in with her boyfriend. 

He looked up at the sky as he walked the block to his own place. His eyes fell on a star. Well, why not try maybe children rhymes knew something he didn't. He stopped walking for a moment closing his eyes, [+lightgreen [i 'Starlight, star bright, the first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight...'] ] 

Finally he got home, but to his surprise a letter was waiting for him at his door. He picked it up on his way into the house. He ripped it open throwing his keys on the table. 

[center [i Dear reader,

You might be wondering who sent you this, and what it contains. I promise you this, this will be an adventure you have been waiting for. There are seven other people out there in this world, who is getting this same letter. They are all wishing they had something better in their life, and this is your chance.

At the bottom of his letter is an address, and a key code. All you have to do is take a leap of faith, and it will hopefully lead you in the right direction. Happy travel's.]]

Maybe it was selfish to want a better life. It wasn't like he wanted to abandon his family. But if he didn't take this opportunity he knew he would break. It wasn't like he had talked to anyone outside of the his sister and father about his mom's condition. And lately anytime they did talk it usually turned into an argument. 

Their mom was better for now. This was the time for this if he was going to have any sort of break. He packed a bag before texting Hallie that he was doing something he needed to do. He knew that she had access to the rest of the money. So it wasn't like he was leaving them without any sort of support. Plus Hallie had a reliable boyfriend who he knew would also look after Hallie if she needed someone outside of their parents. 

He got in his car and headed for the airport. After parking his car he stood there for a moment. Did this make sense? Was this a dumb decision? Well it was too late now. He grabbed his bag and then walked towards the building locking the car behind him. His eyes scanned the room once he entered. He quickly counted the heads that were turned towards him. Seven. [+lightgreen "So that mean I am the last one then?"] he asked with a raise of his eyebrow.

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 A small sigh passed through the male's lips as he watched as other's slowly started to approach. A couple of them mentioned the letter's and he couldn't help but wonder what their stories were. His eyes then fell on one of the other women, and he couldn't help but think she was breathtaking. All of the women were, but the first one out of the other group of four caught his eye first and foremost. He shrugged his shoulder's lightly looking around at all of them. It seemed like they were all there, and accounted for.]]

All of us got the same letter it seems, and there was no return address. Where the hell is this address at in the first place?"] he asked lightly. As if his mind was read, a smaller woman came up to the group, and she had a smile on her face. [b "I see you are all here finally! There's a letter for you. You all should get your plane tickets soon as well. Read the letter first"] she said handing the letter to William.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She then turned on her heel and she was off. The male shook his head as he looked at the letter in his hand. How the hell did she know they were the ones? Maybe it was because there was so many of them standing around. He shook his head lightly as he made sure everyone was around, and could hear him read the letter aloud. He slowly ripped it open and pulled it out of the envelope. It looked just like the one he had gotten back at home. That made him even more nervous for some reason.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He took a breath and started reading the letter aloud. [#b4c8ee "I see you all made it to the airport in one piece. I'm so glad for that! I know you are all confused about what it going on, but soon you will understand the meaning behind all of this. You will need to board the plane after you buy your tickets, and you will be going to Havenwood Maine. Just follow the instructions from the first letter, and you should find the cabin just fine. If you get confused, then stop and ask for help"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "When you get to the cabin, there will be another letter there explaining everything else from there. Please stay safe, stay together, and everything will fall into place for all of you. You'll all figure out you were meant to cross path's for a reason. Safe travel's."] William stopped reading then and flipped the page over. There was still no name, and it made him even more confused. What the hell was going on here? Were they really supposed to travel together? He didn't know any of them personally and it scared him.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He slowly folded up the letter and slid it back into the envelope and looked around at the other three people around him. [#b4c8ee "I guess we don't have much of a choice but to do this"] he said lightly. He didn't know if he should wait for a reply or not. He didn't care at the moment. He picked up his bags and went over to the counter. He bought his ticket, and stepped aside letting the other's buy theirs's as well. This was getting more and more strange, and hopefully soon they would be able to figure everything out.]]

She wanted nothing more than to just leave, and let the other's figure everything out on their own. She wanted to hide away in her small bubble. Letting in all these people was enough to drive her insane. She was a little annoyed at how many people were there. She had to admit though, a couple of the men were nice to look at. Maybe she would be able to bed one of them, or all of them. Now that would be interesting to say the least. She wasn't always like that, but could be.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 As the other's were speaking, she watched as a small female came up to them, and handed William another letter. She cocked her head to the side, watching the woman walk off with a bounce in her step. That was pretty strange. How did she know they were the group that needed the letter? She wondered if whomever had sent the letter's knew what they looked like, and knew that they would all be here together. Whatever the reason was, she had a feeling they would find out sooner or later, and everything would finally be out in the open.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She then turned her attention to William as he spoke. There was something about him that commanded everyone's attention. Sometimes that rubbed her the wrong way, but right now it made her feel comfortable. She would rather the attention be on him, instead of herself at the moment. When William was done reading the letter, and moved towards the ticket counter, she started playing with her fingers, and biting her lip. Something she always did, and would always make her lip bleed in the end. Sooner or later that was going to happen.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She slowly followed behind the other's and bought her ticket as well. She then thanked the woman behind the counter, took a seat and pulled her knees to her chest. She rested her chin on her knees, listening to the two other's speaking. There was so many rules, and she didn't want to follow any of them. She knew they would have too, but for the time being, she would keep her mouth shut. She didn't want to say anything to anyway right now. She sighed lightly as she closed her eyes, and took a breath trying to calm her nerves.]]

Maybe open up and make friends. She just didn't know how too. She kept her arms wrapped around her knees, as she let the other's do what they wanted. She just hoped they wouldn't hate her in the end.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She took a breath and blew it out slowly. Everything was changing, and she could feel it in the air. Maybe she should say something. She decided against it though. She kept her mouth shut, and sat there listening to the other's instead. Hopefully someone would approach her, and she wouldn't have to make the first move after all. A girl could hope for something as simple as that right?]]

[Hina+Mincho  The silence was truly deafening as they stood there. All strangers who had no clue why they were even brought here. The young woman took time looking at each one of the other's faces. They hadn't exchanged names- it seemed that each of them were more on guard than not. Though Zan couldn't hold that against them it wasn't like she was offering up that information either. She couldn't help but feel that if Natalie was here that she would know what to say to break the awkward silence that permeated the air around them. She felt her throat tighten a bit when she thought of her late sister. 

Zan did all she could to return to the present as there was then a woman bounding up to them with another letter in hand. It was starting to feel like the plot to a horror film. Mysterious letters, eight strangers. She found herself making a mental note to not wander off to far alone- wherever it was that they were going. She didn't have to wait too long for the answer though. Her eyes fell once again on the male reading the letter- despite the fact that the letter he was reading made her feel on edge he had a nice voice, it was weirdly calming to her. It also probably helped that he was easy on the eyes. 

Her arms crossed in front of her chest as the male got to the end of the letter. She was not sure about the others but she had never heard of Havenwood before. The reality of the spur of the moment decision was starting to hit her but at the same time she still wanted to see where this path would lead. She didn't want another year of feeling lonely and depressed. She knew Natalie probably wouldn't want her just sulking around either. 

[+mediumpurple "No time like the present,"] she muttered to herself before falling in line with the others to go buy a ticket. It wasn't long before she was at the front of the line. She pulled out her wallet purchasing the ticket not letting herself doubt the decision anymore. It was too late to look back, she was going to see this through. Whatever this was. Still no one seemed that willing to be the first to introduce themselves- knowing that they were about to be on a plane together and then in the same house it was inevitable that they would have to get through at least name introductions eventually.  

Like the others she took a seat nodding in agreement to what the one female had said. She realized that most likely they wouldn't be able to have their own space to sleep so it did make sense to spilt boys and girls into separate rooms. Her eyes flicked up to the male who had been reading just moments ago. There was something about him that made her want to know him- at least what his name was. She chalked it up to his voice having a calming affect on her- trying to ignore the fact that a lot of the thoughts that entered her mind when she looked at him was about how attractive she found him. 

She looked to her side noticing a brunette girl who had pulled her legs into her chest. Zan could relate to the feeling of wanting to feel safe in this bizarre scenario. After a small internal debate on whether speaking up would be worse or better for the other woman she opened her mouth, [+mediumpurple "Hey, my name is Zan by the way."] She gave a small nod and smile to the woman hoping that she wasn't making her feel more uncomfortable.

Jasper found himself aching for a smoke. Anything that would take the edge off. He wasn't the type of person who liked being in the dark about things and like everyone else here he had no clue what to think about what was going on. Some cheery lady handing them yet another letter only added to his frustration. He liked to think of himself as a relatively easy going guy but right now he found himself to be quite the opposite. He was thankful that others seemed to be taking point in conversation. He wasn't really sure what to even say. 

He watched as everyone else slowly went up to buy their tickets. He mulled it over in his mind for another second before he decided to go up to buy the ticket as well. If everyone else was then why not- maybe it would be a good experience. 

It wasn’t really his business why the others were there. The first letter suggested that they all shared some sort of commonality but that’s as far as he knew. In his pocket he could feel his phone going off. He knew it was Hallie. Probably asking him what he was thinking leaving suddenly. 

He didn’t bother pulling out his phone. He would deal with it later. He opted to stand instead of sit like the rest had. Jasper felt too restless to sit down. He paced slightly forcing himself to stop before he drew the others attention. The slight hum of the airport around him felt loud in his ears as he still felt the antsy energy overtaking him. 

[+lightgreen “Damn, it feels like it’s taking forever for boarding to start…”] he said to no one in particular. He wasn’t the best in situations like this. Small talk wasn’t his forte and he didn’t have much experience with having friends. He had always been more of a loner- the opposite of his sister. She had always tried to involve him with her friends and he had developed a few friendships that way.

He glanced at the clock again- at least it wouldn’t be too much longer till boarding. Once he was heading to their destination he hoped that there would be a sort of excitement that would over shadow the anxiety that he currently was feeling.

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 William's mind was buzzing. He didn't know what to really think about everything. He wanted to just up and leave. The other's didn't know him fully anyway, so why should he even stay? He let out a small sigh knowing damn well why he was staying. He was somehow tied to all of these people. He just didn't know how he was tied to them. There was something there, and he could feel it bubbling up inside of him. He let out a small breath he had been holding, and looked around at everyone. The silence getting to him.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He then realized that none of them had said their names. He then heard one of the other women speaking her name. Zan was the woman's name. He didn't know why, but the name seemed to suit her in every way possible. He watched her for a moment, before looking away from her. Something about her seemed to catch his attention, and he didn't know what it was about her either. He bit the inside of his cheek, wondering if anyone else would speak their names. Then someone spoke about sleeping arrangements and he agreed fully with the idea.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He took a slow breath and looked at the time. They would be boarding in less than five minutes finally. The time seemed to be moving slowly, but at the same time not. He then turned his attention back to the group. [#b4c8ee "Name's William, but ya'll can pretty much call me whatever you want"] he offered up. As he was standing there he looked around at everyone before speaking again. [#b4c8ee "Honestly, I don't think it's one of us that sent it. How could it be? We all are confused about this whole mess. I know I am, and I sure as hell wouldn't stoop to stalker level either"] That's when he heard someone ask who the woman was. He didn't even know, and he was kind of curious as to how she knew it was them to give the letter too.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Everything was so strange, and he wasn't getting any answers either. He had so many questions that it wasn't even funny. He let out a small breath and looked at the time once more. That's when one of the flight attendant's came over the overhead speakers. [b "Flight 422 is now boarding. Please make sure you have all of your belongings, and have a safe flight"] then silence once more. She sounded chipper, and that seemed to make the male's skin crawl. He hated chipper people with a passion, and he didn't fully understand why they were that way either.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He bent down and gathered up his things, and then headed towards the gate. He didn't know about the other's, but boarding the plane was making him feel really edgy. Something he hadn't felt before. What was going on here? Why were all of them here? There was so many questions, and not enough answers. He just hoped that when they got to the house, some questions would be answered. He held his ticket out, and then went and found his seat. He didn't know if they were close to one another or not. He didn't really care either way.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He put his back in the overhead compartment, and then took his seat. He leaned his head back, hoping that the flight would be a quiet one. He wasn't in the mood to talk to anyone, but if someone did talk to him, then he would suck it up and do the same. A part of him hoped that the woman named Zan, would end up sitting next to him. He felt some sort of tug towards her, and it worried him a little bit. He closed his eyes, waiting for the flight to start, and end all at once.]]

That's when everyone else started speaking their names as well. She made mental note's in her mind about who's name was with who's face. She felt kind of hopeless in a way. She didn't really understand the feeling, but she wanted to go home, crawl into bed, and forget this whole thing was happening.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She was already here, her ticket bought, and she couldn't back out now.

She pictured herself walking up to the counter and asking for a refund on her ticket. She knew it wouldn't happen, but she could dream right? She chewed the inside of her cheek when the boarding call came. That was pretty quick. She unfolded her legs, and bent down to gather up her things, and slowly got to her feet.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She made her way to the gate, showed the flight attendant her ticket and was allowed on.

Did they really think one of them sent the letter's? She didn't know anyone in the group, so she wouldn't have been able to do that at all. She lowered her gaze to her knees. Her heart was racing, and she wanted to sink into the floor just then. The chatter of adults and children alike seemed to put her at ease a little bit. It wasn't much, but it was better than nothing. She took a deep breath, counted to three and blew it out slowly.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She then unfolded her legs and sat in her seat a bit straighter.

Then again, she didn't really know anyone, and that could end up being a dangerous thing as well. She bit the inside of her cheek as she sat up a bit straighter. She kept telling herself she would open up to the other's.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She was going to come out of her shell, and she was going to make it known to the other's she wasn't weak.

SoulDreamerstarlight   248d ago

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Hina+Mincho]
It seemed that she had started a ripple effect of the others sharing their names as well. The woman she introduced herself to was named Vixen and it seemed the man who had went on a slightly upset rant introduced himself as Heath. Though the name she found herself most paying attention to was William. It was the name of the man she kept finding her gaze drawn back to. It was weird to think she was finding herself drawn to someone she had just met. 

There hardly was time for anyone else to introduce themselves as soon there was an announcement over the PA system. Hopefully they would find the time when they arrived at the destination to try to do over the introductions. The voice over the intercom was oddly bubbly. It felt eerily bright for the uncertainty that this plane ride was enveloped by. She was quick to pick up her bag not really paying attention to the speed of the others. It all felt crazy still but she was also not ready to return to the half life that she had been living. 

She eventually found herself on the plane, she looked and saw the woman she had been talking to earlier, Vixen, already finding her seat. Looking at her own ticket Zan noticed that her seat was not as far back in the aisle as Vixen's was. Plus it seemed highly unlikely that they would all be next to someone else. If they were it really made her wonder if this was too someone pulling strings behind the scenes or if it would be pure coincidence. She lugged bag to the seat that was hers carefully putting it in the overhead compartment. It was then that she looked and noticed who she was sitting with. 

She felt her breath catch in her throat a little as she was sure a look of surprise befell her face. William. She hadn't fully worked up the nerve to talk to him yet- the whole instant attraction to him was not something she was used to. [+mediumpurple "Oh! Um, hi."] she stuttered awkwardly taking the seat next to him. God, she hoped she didn't look like a complete idiot. 

[+mediumpurple "I know you probably heard my name earlier like I heard yours. But, I'm Zan, its nice to formally meet you."] she managed a smile reaching out her hand to him. She scrambled in her head trying to think of something else to say to him. It felt like the longer she sat there without having a follow up the more awkward it became. So she opted for the obvious statement, [+mediumpurple "So this whole letter business is... strange... What do you think its going to be like when we get to the cabin?"] Her eyes fell on his as she spoke. She found herself further drawn in by them- in her opinion he had nice eyes. It was then that she wished they hadn't agreed to spilt up by gender, she wouldn't mind sharing a bed with him. 

Once everyone was seated she heard the pilots voice sound through the plane. She pulled her attention away from William as the static filled voice shared the location of the exits in case of emergency. Apparently they were in for a smooth flight to Maine.

Jasper opted to listen to the exchange of names. Not yet joining in with his own. Mainly since it appeared it was time to board their plane which had caused everyone to start breaking away from the circle they had been in moments before. He didn't waste too much time standing up from his own seat and making his way towards the gate. The rest of the group was almost all ahead of him in line to show their own tickets to the worker. He cracked his fingers as he waited in line. The only one who had not lined up ahead of him was the male who introduced himself as Hayden. It seemed like it took him a moment to join the rest of them.

It didn't take long to be on the plane himself. He noticed that all their seats seemed to be relatively close to each other. William who had read the last letter addressed to all of them seemed to be sitting next to the woman who called herself Zan. A sort of amused smile played on his face once he noticed how they both were looking at each other. It appeared that it wasn't going to take too long for attraction to bloom in the group of them. He wasn't surprised by that really. In fact he himself found one of the women to be quite attractive. He wouldn't mind he was sitting next to her. The universe apparently was for once on his side. 

Jasper grinned to himself before making his way to his seat. Vixen who he would be sitting next to was already in her seat. He took a moment to situate his belongings before he took his seat next to her. [+limegreen "Hey, my name is Jasper,"] he said with a smile as he took the seat next to the woman. [+limegreen "I think I caught your name earlier, Vixen?"] he asked as he buckled himself in. [+limegreen "Pretty name I like it."] he smiled at her. He liked unique names, plus he felt that she was a woman who needed a name that was not typical. 

He half listened to the pilot as he spoke instead focusing his attention on the feeling of the plane starting to move. He had been expecting to find the sensation jarring- and it was certainly a bit alien to him. But there was a part of the anticipation that felt thrilling to the male. Jasper had never flown before but it felt exciting to him that he was now.

He looked out the window watching as the airport started to get farther away from them. It wasn't long before he felt the airplane start to pick up speed. Jasper hoped he wouldn't be embarrassed to much by the expression of wonder that was on his face as the plane started to lift off the ground. The scene out of the window soon getting further away.

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 William had been somewhat in his own mind, when he heard a woman's voice break through his thoughts. He looked up and a small smile passed over his lips. The male nodded lightly as he waited for her to get comfortable. [#b4c8ee "It's a pleasure meeting you as well Zan"] he said with a warm smile. There was something about this woman that seemed to really draw his attention. He didn't know what it was, and he didn't know if he would ever be able to figure it out. He then listened to what else she had to say.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He had to admit the letter business was a little strange, but he was willing to see where it fully led. As for the cabin thing, he didn't really know. As he was about to speak the pilot came over the overhead speakers. [b "Good afternoon everyone. My name is Maxim Brooks, and I will be your pilot for this trip to Maine. The weather looks perfect, and we will be having one of the smoothest flights in history. Well as long as I've been a pilot anyway."] he said with a small laugh.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [b "The flight attendants will be around checking on all of you, to make sure you are all comfortable, and if you need something to eat. Thank you for flying with Sky High Airlines, and hopefully you'll all have an enjoyable flight"] that was the end of that. William shook his head lightly wondering how long the pilot has said those exact words, and on how many flights. He then turned his attention back to Zan and went back to her question about the cabin. He thought about saying something cheesy, but thought better of it at the last minute.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "Honestly I'm not sure. I'm hoping it's a pretty large place to room all of us. But I have a feeling we might need to room with other's. I mean if that's the case, I wouldn't mind having you as a roommate"] he said with a small smirk. He knew he wouldn't really do anything unless she wanted him too. He wasn't one to force himself on someone either. Then again he wouldn't mind sharing a bed with the woman either. It's been a while since he's had a woman laying next to him.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Zan on the other hand would be the perfect cuddle buddy for sure. Thinking about it was getting his hopes up a bit, and he tried not to really think about it. He turned his gaze away from the woman and looked out the window he was sitting by. [#b4c8ee "This whole thing is strange, and I don't know what to really think about it. I feel like something's going to happen, but I'm not really sure"] he said lightly. He didn't know if she would even reply, and he didn't expect her too either.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He was mostly just talking to himself. He sighed lightly and soon enough the plane took off. His hands gripped the arm rests on his sides, and his heart hammered inside of his chest. He turned his eyes away from the window as the plane climbed higher and higher into the sky. He shut his eyes, trying to calm his racing heart. He wasn't a flyer, and he was kicking himself for even coming on this blasted trip. If he could have drove, he would have. It was too late now though, they were in the air, heading towards Maine.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Vixen looked up when Jasper spoke his name, and she nodded. [#B9899E "That's right. The pleasure is all mine, Jasper"] she said lightly. The sound of his voice was like honey, and she wanted to melt. Hell if things were different she had a feeling she would have met him sooner, and maybe things wouldn't be so awkward. She heard the pilot speaking, but she didn't really pay attention to it. She was paying attention to Jasper instead. She was glad they were sitting together. At least she had someone interesting seated next to her.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She felt the plane start rolling, and soon they were up in the air. She had seen a couple of people grab their armrests, and a couple other's let out gasps around her. She had been on planes her whole life, so it wasn't new to her. That's when she saw the look of wonder on Jasper's face, and her heart nearly melted at the sight. [#B9899E "I take it you've never really flown before?"] she asked him. It was kind of cute, and she almost made that comment but caught herself just in time, and stopped herself from doing so.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She wasn't in the mood to make a fool of herself. She didn't really know the male, and he didn't know her, but she was willing to get to know him for sure. She licked her lips lightly as she tore her eyes from his profile. Something about him was drawing her in. She felt she knew him from somewhere, but she just didn't know from where. She wondered if she had seen him around town, since they all seemed to be from the same town it felt like. Then again she could be wrong.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 When they were fully in the air, she unbuckled her seatbelt when the light went off, and she shifted in her seat a bit. She crossed her ankles, wishing there wasn't an armrest between them. She wanted to claim the male's lap with her legs, and badly. Whatever that feeling was, it was new and strange. She shook the feeling away as she finally spoke once more. [#B9899E "So, why's an attractive male like you on a plane with a bunch of strangers, heading to Maine in the first place?"] she asked him. She licked her lower lip lightly.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 The male had captured her attention in more ways than one, and she couldn't help but wonder what was going through his mind, and why he was here. She felt like she could get to know him, hell maybe fall into bed with him. She wouldn't mind having his hands on her. The thought of that seemed to make her heart race a bit, and a small shade of pink tinted her cheeks just then. She hurried and looked away, hoping with everything in her being that he hadn't seen the blush creeping up into her cheeks.]]

Hearing William's voice again after the pilot had finished his spiel made her eyes fall back on the attractive male. Her eyes widened slightly filling with a look of interest at his comment about the rooms. A confident sort of smile started to form on her face as he continued talking. She hadn't been sure he would have even continued the conversation when the pilots voice had interrupted them. More surprising was his unexpected forwardness towards her. Not that she minded, it just made her feel more confident in her own desire to flirt with him. 

Now she was truly hoping that they might be able to overthrow the original vote to separate rooms by gender. [+mediumpurple "Well I would certainly be open to being your roommate,"] she flirted back. Zan did her best to ignore the pang she felt when his eyes looked away from her. She knew it wasn't a slight or anything but she truly liked his eyes. 

[+mediumpurple "Hopefully it will be something good... or at least something good will come out of all of this."] she said in response with a shrug of her shoulders. She glanced over him again as he gazed out the window. Maybe he would be the good thing to come out of this for her. She couldn't help but think about how much she wanted to be off this plane and cuddling into him. She felt it in her stomach when the plane took off. The slight jolt of not having wheels on the ground anymore. 

She wasn't too bothered by the take off. Perhaps due to the fact that she had been on a plane before it had just been forever since the last time. Though when she looked over at William again she found that he had his eyes shut tight. The arm rest under his fingers seemed to groan slightly at the tension of his grip. Gently she reached her hand over his hand that was closest to her. Wordlessly she traced a small circle tenderly over the top of his hand before lightly squeezing it. It was a gesture that she hoped was reassuring. They were still mostly strangers after all maybe she had made it worse. She certainly hoped she hadn't. She wanted to continue talking to him, see where it led, not have it crumble apart before even getting to know him. 

[+mediumpurple "So do you have any hobbies?"] she asked. Zan knew it was a random question but she was hoping it would be a good distraction to help take his mind off the things that were making him nervous. She had wanted the question to be lighthearted enough as well. As she waited for him to respond with an answer or with confusion she watched to see if the tension left his body.

Jasper reigned in his expression a bit. Not that he was embarrassed per say after all it was his first time on a plane and he was truly excited about it. [+limegreen "Yeah its my first time. I take it that it's not yours,"] he said noting the way she had posed the question. He grinned at her tearing his gaze away from the window. There would be another time where he could look out the window but right now he wanted to focus solely on the woman next to him. 

He let himself lean back into the chair scanning over Vixen. She was quite a bombshell beauty in his mind. It made him wonder if he had a chance with her or if she was already taken. Though by the tone of her next question he figured he probably had an answer to his own thoughts. His lips formed into a sort of smirk as he looked at her, [+limegreen "Attractive, huh?"] he repeated to her, [+limegreen "I would have to say you are the attractive one."] He grinned at her. 

[+limegreen "As for why I am here, well I guess to put it simply I needed an escape. A break from how my life has been for the past year, what about you sweetheart?"] he asked his voice deep but smooth as he spoke. God he wanted to not be on the plane right now. He wished that he was already in the cabin with her. Getting to know her in a different kind of way. Though he would also take talking to her for now. There was always later for the bedroom.

If she asked him to elaborate he would at least give her a little more information on why his life was such a hell for a year. But in some ways he just wanted to not think about the life that was awaiting him after this trip at least for a little while. He had noticed a slight flush to her face but decided to not bring it up for the time being. At least not right away, rather he let himself feel a rush of confidence at the realization. 

Jasper fleetingly glanced at the others who he had meet in the airport. Oddly enough it seemed like they all had split off into groups of two. And by the looks of it there was some attraction budding between each pairing. That suited him fine as that meant he was the one with the most attractive female's attention in his mind at least.
WickedLove-gazerѕ   226d ago

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 As the male felt the plane take off, he wanted nothing more than to bolt. He hadn't been on a plane in his whole life, and this was his first time. If he was being honest with himself, he was making a fool of himself in front of Zan. Something about her made him relax and want to impress her. That's when he felt her hand touch his. The feeling of her hand covering his was enough to bring him out of his thoughts. The simple touch was enough to help calm his nerves. That's when he heard her voice as well.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 A voice he was getting attached too. Just hearing the simple question about hobbies made the male smile a bit. He slowly opened his eyes, and turned his head in her direction. What were his hobbies? He had to think about it for a moment before responding. [#b4c8ee "I know it might sound weird, but I tend to collect comic books. I never read them, I just collect them, because one day they could be worth millions."] he breathed out. He wasn't planning on selling them either. It was one of his lame hobbies after all.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 That's when he realized he sounded like a total gold digger. [#b4c8ee "Well shit. I didn't mean to sound like I was a greedy bastard. I'm not planning on selling the comic books ever, I just know if I did decide too, they would be worth millions"] he hurried and explained himself. He wasn't making too good of an impression. Or at least he didn't feel like he was anyway. He slowly turned his hand in her's, and gently laced their fingers together. It was nice to have a woman's touch for a change.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "Thank you by the way. I know I look like a total idiot, but I'm scared of heights, and I wish we could have drove. I would rather have my feet on solid ground, instead of in something like this thousands of miles in the air"] he admitted. He then realized she had also mentioned sharing a room with him. Would that be wise? Would that be against the rules, or whatever for this whole thing? He thought about it for a little bit, but then realized they were all adults after all.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "I suppose we will see when we land"] he said with a small smile. He was still really nervous, but it was slowly going away. Just having Zan next to him was enough to calm him down. He wondered what she would do if and when he spilled his guts about his Cancer. He thought a couple of weeks ago it had come back, but it hadn't. He was glad for that. He sighed lightly as he closed his eyes once more, keeping their fingers laced together. It was nice to have the skin to skin contact for sure.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 The female's eyes found his and a small smirk passed over them. Her? Attractive? She doubted that, but she loved the attention he was giving her. She rolled her eyes a bit as well. [#B9899E "If I'm going to be honest here, I feel like you are the attractive one. The tattoo's, your eyes, lips, everything. When I first laid eyes on you, I hoped you and I would have connected, and it seems like we have"] she said with a warm smile. She looked towards William and Zan as well, and saw something there between them as well.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 That made her feel a little bit better. Zan was a beautiful woman, and if she was being honest she was slightly jealous. She was just glad Jasper hadn't gone after the other woman. She then turned her attention back to the male beside her. She cocked her head as he spoke about why he was here. He then asked her the same thing, but added [i sweetheart] at the end. That made her heart flutter inside of her chest. She wasn't used to being called sweetheart, but she loved the sound of it already. She shrugged a bit looking down.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#B9899E "I suppose it's the same reason you have. To get away. The last year for me has been a bloody nightmare, and I honestly still have some flashback's about it. A lot of the time it breaks my heart. Maybe later on down the road I'll tell you about it"] she said lightly. She had a feeling they would have to have that talk sooner or later. Was she really ready to let someone that close to her? She already felt like she could trust the male, and she barely knew him.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She leaned back in her seat as she looked back towards the male. [#B9899E "So I'm not sure about the whole rooming thing, but if you are up for it, you are more than welcome to sleep in my bed. Unless you wanna sleep in Zan's"] she said lightly. She was kind of fishing for some reassurance that she didn't have to worry about someone else snagging his attention. If it happened, it happened. She just hoped it wouldn't. He was a man after all, and she was always put on the back burner.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She then fell silent wishing those words hadn't left her lips. Her insecurities were getting the best of her all over again. She bit the inside of her cheek as she wrapped her arms around herself. She was going back into her shell, and she was fighting with every fiber of her being not too. She was here for a reason, and she had to remember that. It was going to be hard to open up, but she was willing to take that leap of faith. She let her words hang in the air between them, biting the inside of her cheek.]]

It seemed like her question had helped snap his mind out of the spiral he had been going down. As he babbled on with his answer to her question she started to smile. Soon the smile was a full on grin as she giggled lightly, finding the way he seemed to be trying to come off a certain way to her adorable. [+mediumpurple "I didn't think you sounded greedy,"] she replied gently still grinning at him. [+mediumpurple "I personally don't know too much about comic books but I remember my brother loved the read them when we were kids."] Zan still remembered how once when they were kids and Nat had hidden one of Luke's X-Men comics so that he had to play with them instead of reading. Luke had been pissed but in the end of course he forgave their little sister. 

The reminiscing was cut short by the feeling of fingers wrapped between her own. Her face turned a slight shade of pink as her gaze fell towards her hand again. It had been practically half a year since she had held a man's hand like that. Not that she was complaining, she was honestly quite happy with how things seemed to be turning out. Plus hand holding was innocent enough that if he wasn't interested in her as more than a potential friend that they could both just shrug it off. 

[+mediumpurple "You don't look like an idiot. It is quite unnerving really,"] she said with a small shrug of her shoulders. Her eyes studied the man next to her again tracing over the features of his face. Then she said, [+mediumpurple "You are most definitely too cute to look like an idiot."] Her face felt warm after the words she spoke, he was more than cute in her opinion- he was handsome and sweet. Lightly she cleared her throat before turning her attention to the back of the seat that was in front of her. 

When he went back to closing his eyes she let her thumb absent mindedly brush against his. [+mediumpurple "If it helps I can keep talking to you- make the flight go by faster, I have been told by my family that I am a pretty talkative person,"] she said to him. [+mediumpurple "Unless the quiet is better for you."] She knew that the flight would be over before they knew it most likely but when you are nervous even a few minutes can seem like an eternity. 

[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/vN1BYVR.png]]

Jasper always enjoyed attention- almost any kind of attention. His mother had always said that he fed off attention she had attributed that to all his tattoos. Which might be partially true- he did like the attention he got when he first started getting them. But Jasper had to say that positive attention was his favorite especially when it came from an attractive woman. He grinned as she listed off the things she found attractive about him. 

When she glanced away from him to a different part of the plane he followed her line of sight. A little ways in front of them William and Zan seemed to be in their own little world. Well that worked out well for Jasper since it meant that he wouldn't have to compete for Vixen's attention with William if he was busy keeping his attention on Zan. 

Jas didn't push her to tell him more when she answered him. He was a little vague as well. Plus if he wasn't fully ready to share his traumas why would he expect differently from her. [+limegreen "I'll be all ears if you ever do decide you want to share with me,"] he said simply. [+limegreen "But I am sorry for whatever you had to go through this past year,"] he added to the woman. 

When she spoke of room arrangements one of his eyebrows raised in amusement at first. Enjoying the image of sharing a bed with her and further enjoying that she was the first one to bring it up. But then his brows knit together, confused when she spoke of Zan. He looked over at her noting that she seemed nervous about what answer he would give. Jasper knew he could be an asshole, but the way that Vixen looked at him made any sort of his typical demeanor fade away. 

Instead now he looked at her with a softer sort of gaze, his hand closer to her gently tucked under her chin so she wouldn't look away, [+limegreen "Hey, you don't have to worry about me wanting to be in Zan's bed. I am only interested in sharing with you,"] he said lightly but still added a wink at the end. Once he was done talking he moved his hand away from her chin. He still wasn't sure why she would think that he would possibly be interested in Zan or why she seemed to want reassurance from him but he supposed that all of four of them were probably broken in their own ways.
WickedLove-gazerѕ   99d ago

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 The male was glad for the company. He couldn't help but wonder why the other's hadn't chosen to sit with them. Then again he couldn't blame them. He had seen Vixen, and she was a beautiful woman as well. Wasn't his type, and he knew that. Zan on the other hand, she was his type and she was a total sweetheart as well. He turned his attention back to her, and felt his cheeks flush with the complement about him being too cute to look like an idiot. He reached up with his free hand and rubbed the back of his neck.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He wasn't used to those kinds of complements, and it kind of made him uncomfortable. When people found out he had cancer, and had to go through chemo, he had lost everything. It's been a year since it happened, and he's been cancer free since, but he was still worried about it. What if they looked at him differently? What if Zan looked at him differently? He didn't want her treating him like someone who's still ill. Those were the kinds of thoughts he didn't want in his mind. He shook his head lightly.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "I don't mind talking with you. It might help ease the nervousness a lot though. Just don't be surprised if you do most of the talking. Honestly, you are the better looking one than me"] he said with a small, warm smile. She really was too. It's been a while since he's looked upon a woman as beautiful as her. He just hoped that when they got to where they were going, he'd be able to open up to her, and the other two about his cancer. He didn't want them to walk on eggshells around him either.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 He kept his fingers wrapped around her's, and knew he was feeling slightly better. He cocked his head to the side, and took in the sight of her. [#b4c8ee "If you don't mind me asking, why did you respond to the letter? I know we all got one, but I am curious as to why all of us responded to it, and what the reasons are. If you don't want to talk about it, that's fine. I'm just curious is all"] he said lightly. He had always been a curious person as well.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 There was a lot of things he wanted to know about Zan, and he wondered if he would find anything out from her. Would she be willing to open up to him? Or would she just close off like everyone else did? He wondered what the other's stories were as well. He sighed lightly as he looked towards the window next to him. The higher they got, the more nervous he became. It was coming true too. Things were changing, and he didn't know if they were for the best or not.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 As much as he wanted the flight to be over and done with, he didn't. He was glad they had this time to talk to one another. It was nice, but he was also curious about the other two with them. Hopefully when they got to the house, things might be a bit different, and they'd all be somewhat comfortable with one another to sit down, get to know one another, and go from there. For now, he was glad to have Zan's attention and no one else's at the moment.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Feeling Jasper's fingers under her chin she had no choice but to look at him. When he said he was interested in sharing with her, made her relax a little bit. That's one thing she would have to work on. If someone told her something, then she would have to take their word for it. She bit the inside of her cheek as she cocked her head to the side. [#B9899E "Do you think other's will join? Or be at the house when we get there? Because if I'm being straight up honest..."] she paused a moment.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Should she keep going? Or would she seem selfish? She started now, and had no choice but to finish. [#B9899E "If I'm being completely honest, I don't want some other female getting your attention. I mean, I know we have to get to know the other's, but there's something about you. Something different, that I don't want to share with anyone else"] she admitted. It was true too. He was different, he was unique, and she wanted him all to herself for the time being. She wouldn't mind talking to William, but Jasper already caught her attention right off.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 That, and the fact she would be sharing a bed with Jasper. She wanted to feel the male's fingers on her skin again. She liked the way he made her look at him. In a way that was some sort of turn on. The way he wouldn't let her look away, and the way he said he wasn't interested in Zan that way at all. It made her wonder if there would be other's at the house. She didn't want to share what she had secretly claimed as her's already. t would tear her apart if she had too.]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She would suck it up and do it though. She shifted her weight a bit and faced the male. She bit her lip lightly as she thought about telling him somethings about her. Some of the reasons as to why she was here. Would it be better to let the other's know as well. [#B9899E "How about this. When we land, and are in the car heading to the house, we let the other two know, that we should lay everything out on the table. Why we are here, what we are expecting out of this"]]]

[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#B9899E "I know it might be hard for all of us, but I feel like if we know that small, intimate part, then maybe we won't all be so awkward around one another. Or you and I can just talk about it now, and let them do it on their own time"] she offered. It wasn't much, but at least it was a small start. She bit her lower lip lightly as she fell silent. She was curious on if Jasper would even let her into that part of his life. If not, she would find another way around it.]]
