Two females from the present day end up going back to when Jack the Ripper was terrorizing the streets of Whitechapel London. Neither one of them knew what was going to happen. At first they didn't understand why they had been brought here, but the longer they were there they realized they were supposed to try and find out who Jack the Ripper was. What'll happen when Jack the Ripper sets his sights on the two women? Will they make it out of London alive? Will they make it back to the time they were originally from? Or will one of them lose their life before that happened? This is Ripping the Ripper.
Blue eyes stared at the words on the page as she lay upside-down on her best friend's bed and was reading the book she had found while waiting. She loved to go through Everleigh's things and had since the two girls met fifteen years ago and became nearly joined at the hip. The truth, Virginia had had a crush on the other girl since they were thirteen but had never been brave enough to tell her. She had been scared to ruin their friendship and the fact that they were close enough to be sisters. So she made herself be content with their closeness as they were and even tried to push down her feelings by dating other girls. Just her relationships never lasted long. In fact, that was how Gina found herself lying on Everleigh's bed as she was now and reading about Jack the Ripper. She had convinced the other to go to a dance club with her to forget about her most current breakup with Mara.
[#ff00bf "Hey Ev, how do you read this sick and twisted shit? I forgot what a piece of work this fucker was. I mean really..."] She muttered as she had just turned to an illustrations that showed a man in dark clothing with what was considered a "whore" in the 1800s but quite mellow in modern times. [#ff00bf "Though I have to admit it would be interesting to go all Nancy Drew on his ass and 'Rip the Ripper.'"] Came Gina's words as she turned over and laid the book down, bright blue eyes following her friend around the room.
And after a moment, the girl with the long blonde hair stood and walked over to her friend's closest. [#ff00bf "Do you mind if I steal this top? It's more fun than the one I'm wearing. I want to see if I can get some girls to notice me."] She said as she held out a black crop top with a bedazzled skull and crossbones. The young woman was already in a short black skirt and long boots anyway, so why not see if her bestie would let her steal something that would actually give people something to stare at?
Though that was when the something loud, almost like a cannon being shot went off and the lights began to flicker. Gina looked to Everleigh and couldn't help the tremble in her voice as she spoke her next words. [#ff00bf "W-what the hell was that?"] But honestly, the young woman of twenty-three wasn't even sure she wanted to know. She hated loud noises for one, and two...she had the feeling that something weird was happening or about to. And again, Gina looked over at her best friend and bit her lip. She was hoping that MAYBE the other would be able to make some sense of this.
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 Everleigh had finally agreed to go out on the town with Gina. She hadn't really wanted to leave her home for the last couple of weeks, because she was getting over the fact that her long term girlfriend Odette had cheated on her. She had been planning on asking the woman to marry her, but that had been the first mistake. The second was not seeing that the woman she really wanted to take to bed every night was Gina. The two had been so close that she thought Gina thought of her as nothing but a friend.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She had been talking to Clark about it a lot, and he had told her over and over that she needed to break things off with Odette, and get with Gina. She had thought about it countless times, but she didn't know how to really break the news to Odette about it. That's when she found Odette and another female in their bed togehter. They were doing everything that her and Odette did, and it still broke her heart into a thousand pieces to walk in on. Odette had tried to talk to her about it too that night.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She didn't want anything to do with Odette after that. So when Gina begged her to go out tonight, she finally caved. She did miss seeing Gina, and she wouldn't mind getting a few drinks in herself. She cocked her head to the side as she walked in from her shower. She had a towel wrapped around herself as she entered the room. She watched as the blonde made her way to the closet, and pulled out the top. A small sheepish smile crossed her lips just then, and knew the secret was out.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#C4788E "Honestly I was going to give that to you for Christmas. I shouldn't have had it hanging in the closet, I kind of forgot it was there. It's more your style anyway, so please wear it"] she said with a small smile. She had meant to give it to the other, and just never got around to it. So she hoped that Gina would take the Christmas present bait. She then got dressed in a pair of black leggings, and one of her favorite maroon dresses. She then sat on the edge of her bed and pulled her shoes on.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 That's when she heard the bang, and her heart skipped a beat. What the fuck was that? She was about to answer the other about the Jack the Ripper shit she had been reading, but she had gotten distracted with the top, and now the loud noise. [#C4788E "I don't fucking know.."] she breathed out. She was shaking a bit as she walked over to the window and drew the shades back a little bit. The sky outside was dark, and she couldn't really see anything. Her heart was hammering, and her hands were shaking.]]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#C4788E "I don't see anything strange.. But I don't know.. It's dark outside"] she breathed out. She let the shades fall back into place as she turned light blue eyes to the other woman. She was scared, and she didn't know what to really do. What was she supposed to do anyway? She didn't want to leave the safety of her bedroom, but they would have too sooner or later.]]
Everleigh was VERY lucky that sometimes Gina could be on the naive side. Because once the other had said the shirt had been for her and been meant to be a Christmas present, she literally let out squeal and was quick to put it on. She had been about to ask again about the Jack the Ripper shit she had been looking through and reading, but then the extremely loud bang that sounded like an explosion was heard and she couldn't help that she was internally freaking the fuck out. What made things much worse for Gina was seeing that Ev was just as scared as she was, if not more so. What really gave away Ev's fear to Gina was seeing the other young woman looking out the window as she had and the words that came after.
God she was going to hate herself. She really fucking was. But her words were out before she could really stop them. [#ff00bf "Since...since we don't know what's going on, maybe we can see if we can find out?"] Gina was trying to sound brave as she asked her qustion. She really was, but deep down she was still shaken up pretty badly from the bang they had heard and the flickering of the lights. NONE of that had been normal or even something that should have happened. At least she didn't think it should have.
The young woman of twenty-three took a deep breath as she was trying to regain her bearings and moved over to the landline that was on Everleigh's desk. Sometimes she teased the other for still having it, but this time she wasn't. She was using it to test something. With a shaky hand, the blonde picked up the phone and her heart all but sank when there was complete silence on the other end. And quickly she put it back on the caddy and went to try her cellphone...no service for it either.
[#ff00bf "It...it looks like if we want to find anything out we may actually have to leave the house. I mean I know I said I wanted an adventure tonight, but this is really starting to feel like one of those damn horror movies you and I used to stay up late to watch on weekends."] Came soft words as she finally went to her best friend and held a hand out to her, giving a pleading look. [#ff00bf "I know you're just as scared as I am...but come with me?"] There was NO way in hell that she would be able to do this alone. And IF this was going to end badly (which something told her somehow it would) there was no one she would rather face it with than Ev.
