Numb by Linkin Park
First thought: You parents may have said they loved you but secertly they were a little ashamed of you. It may be because you're deaf, been in jail,gay, anything. You knew that they were ashamed so it made you either feel ashamed and hate yourself. You did you should have done or maybe it was something you didn't chose. You ran away to Freedom. Where you met a group of kids around your age who had the same problem in their life. You would stay there all summer and said you would never go back but of course you did. But, before you did you made a promise to always come back here til we all died. *Pinky Swear*. It has been five years since you have. One of you isn't ready to leave that city or their real family behind. All they want is one more summer before everyone moves on in their lives.
For many people they feel at home in their home but for these six teens it's as far away they can get from their house. Every single of these teenagers have some thing they're ashamed of. It might be a disablity,being in a gang,anything. They are always being judged by every single person who meets them. For the summer they made a pack to always go to this small town near the beach,The people here were homeless people,Gay,Lesbians,Transgender,they were all different. They all came here to get away from the judgemental world. To come here they had to lie to their parents when if they said no they would run-away for the summer and come back in August. Their old town they came from gave them the name "The Summer Ghost" because they left not a single trait of where they went. The last time they did that was a total of 5 years ago. One of them finds a picture of all of them a decides it's time to reunite the "Ghost" and live up their last summer before some go off to college and they all go down different paths, never to entertwin again.
You all get a letter. There is no return address all it sais is your old town of what you called "Landlocked". You all being the naive teenagers you are open the letter to see the picture that the newpaper always used around the summer time when you would go "missing".
The letter states:
So nice to say hi to you again. So it toke me along time to type these and to find your address i mean damn some of you even moved out of the state. How have you been, (Insert name here)? Ok,it's not that big of a secert. So it's Alice, that picture I've sent you. Do you remember that? You and your friends would always runaway to that cute little town. What was the name? Oh right..Freedom,California. Ring a bell? Yea I knew it would. But from what I remember it has been a total for at least 5 years since we have gone back. We are all getting older some of us are 18,17, shit one of us is even 16. The reason I'm sending this is not because I wish to tease you but I remember your difference that you were ashamed of. Were you the one who was color-blinded,in a gang,or was it something else? I am here to invite you to return to that old little town. Just one more time. Before we all forget about each other completely, Hell who knows maybe it may refersh our friendships,relationships,who knows what that one summer will do? You do remeber how to do this right? Well if you don't this is what you do:
1.Leave your cell phone at home
2.Tell No one!
3.Take only the basic needs (Clothing,food,etc.)
4.You may bring you ipod as long as you turn off the tracker
5.You must find your own way of tranportion
6.Leave you room door locked
7.WE DO NOT JUGDE EACH OTHER
8.WHAT HAPPENS IN FREEDOM STAYS IN FREEDOM!!!!!
9.We are a family and we say together.
See you there, An old friend

These poor, unfortunate souls were once a part of this great world, but have been abandoned. Why don't you consider viewing their profiles and making a decision on whether or not you can roleplay them accurately?
Turtle smirked at Eli's remark about taxis, looking over her shoulder as she pulled out, steering the wheel. "Do you think we all changed?" Turtle glanced at Eli. "I mean I didn't so much, but I think the others changed quite a bit. Maybe its just me." She shrugged. She tried to start a conversation, because she just hates the quiet.
((I had detention! Sorry! >.< Its not my fault my teachers a bitch!))
Up ahead, her eyes unobstructed by any bulky, constrictive helmet, Izzie caught sight of the old house. They were rapidly approaching the humble abode that rested on the coast beside the sea--Izzie could feel the air inflected with the feel and scent of salt, the aura of the ocean as they drew nearer. How long has it been since I swam? she couldn't help but wonder as she saw the dark cerulean surface of the sea. She could remember she'd actually learnt to swim for the first time when she'd been here five years ago, but upon reflection, she hadn't so much as dipped her feet into the sea, or a lake, or so much as a swimming pool, not since. She had no fear or dislike of water, or of the ocean--one of her lifelong dreams, after all, being to see the beaches her own country of Brazil was so famous for--but since then, it had never really struck her. Wonder if I can even still do it.
Her motorcycle came at last to a stop before the towering structure of the old building. She looked up at it--this place had been her home for one all-too-brief summer, long before the apartment she now struggled to maintain and afford through an honest living. Probably full of all kinds of mold and insects and pests and other nasty-ass merda, she thought to herself--after all, it was to be expected after five years that the house would probably have obtained some...new residents. Well, she was familiar with that--being no stranger to old, subpar living quarters, Izzie could not bring herself to regard it as a particularly horrifying prospect, though without a doubt there'd have to be some kind of cleansing of the house if they were gonna be living there again, because Izzie sure as hell wasn't keen on finding out the hard way halfway through the night a massive fucking tarantula had laid claim to the room she used to sleep in.
Yeah, you only needed that to happen to you once before you started making sure.
Alice ran up, tossing her motorcycle helmet aside and sitting down on the steps. "It's so great to be home!" she howled up to the sky. "Freedom, we have arrived!" Izzie couldn't conceal a smile at her excitement. Well, everyone here's probably pretty excited, I'm guessin'. Not least of all her stony-faced self. Anticipation mounting within, Izzie silenced the Harley-Davidson and dismounted, stepping not towards the house but towards the shore it faced, watching the ocean--almost, she felt, just like she had five years ago. She hadn't changed at all since then, not even the way her rosewood eyes reflected the shimmering depths of the sea and sent waves of melancholy and discontent back to the azure surface.
[[One day without thirty posts will not kill the RP. :P]]
Vinny entered and just looked around, everything was covered in a thick layer of dust. He headed towards his old room and found that the door was still locked. He just smirked and felt around the floor for his old tools. He spent a good two minutes looking before he found what he was looking for, his old bobby pin. He had stolen it from his mom and used his door for practice to pick locks. His skills were rusty from not being used, but after a few moments he had picked the lock and turned the knob. When Vinny walked in he was greeted by his posters, his bed, and his CD collection. He walked towards his CDs and slid his fingers down the bindings. He listed off various artists: Eminem, Avenged Sevenfold, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Bowling for Soup. "It feels nice to be home." Vinny said walking into the living room.
Walking in he noticed Alice already getting out the memories. She was laughing a picture of her blonde self. He smiled and took the picture. He laughed and pointed at her and then smiled apologetically, obviously trying to get her to know, that he is just joking around. It sucks when you can't speak he thought. Then he noticed something out of the corner of his eyes, his notebooks! He grinned and picked them off. He flipped through them, and noticed old conversations he had with Ellie. Other's with Pierce about music. How he had told them about his problem with his vocal cords and how he can't talk. So many memories were coming back.
Walking in the living room,"I just love this place." He remembered when the group would sit and talk and chat while Pierce played hhis guitar to bring some type of mood to the room. Oh, how colorful his hair was, it was blue, green, and black. Nothing changed but, the style of clothes he wore, and his hair color, which he dyed it many, many times, and finally chose a color that fits him best. He smiled as he remembered all the colors of the rainbow.
Back home he had to take two buses just to get to the doctors. If someone was losing an arm… they where screwed. Eliot looked towards Turtle and smiled again. It didn’t matter how much things had changed. This was still his home.
Alice walks in the girls old room and sees the bed farest away from the door and window because she used to sleep walk. It always ended with someone having to save her from the water saying she could have died.
She lays her small bag on the dirty matress before taking out the sheet she brought from home. She sits on the bed andc just lays there wondering what her parents are thinking about her running away again after she swore she wouldn't do it again. She bits her lip to help from letting out a single tear. She knows she shouldn't care but she worried about her younger brother who was awake when she left. Alice didn't know she was right at her five year old brother was there when she went out her window to send those letters.
He smiled and then laid on the bed. He looked up at the ceiling. There was a picture of this mother up there. It was small, but he could still see the smile on her face. No one else knew about his mother. They asked, but he had just said/wrote down, that he missed her and like to have her picture along. It was the truth, but it meant something totally different to him. He really missed his mother, and he could never see her again. He closed his eyes and that thought and then turned over in his bed. He sat up and suddenly sneezed because of the dust.
