Introduction

Theme Song:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_q2QEVRSIQ8
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.

PLOT
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.



Introduction:

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.

"Yeah, he is..." Turtle replied. She looked a bit closer at the man. "Is it just me, or...does he look familiar?" Turtle asked everyone. He does play very beautifully.

Setting: Freedom,California2012-02-21 00:10:54, as written by Comrade
This still wasn't making sense. The others were all talking and laughing with this guy as though he was Ellie. They were even calling him Ellie. He's a fucking dude, how is it even possible to mistake him for Ellie? she thought exasperatedly, wondering whether everyone else was out of their mind or if it was just her. Then again, given the company she was in, it was probably both--but someone had to be in the wrong here, and she was positive it wasn't her, on account of everyone seemed to think this dude--and he was clearly a dude, if vaguely feminine in his features--was a chick.

But when she made her...polite query, shall we say, he clasped his hands together, staring straight down to the ground in a timid manner. "Just like the rest of you did," he murmured, voice barely audible, even in the rather quiet setting of the restaurant (well, it'd been quiet right up until Turtle showed up, but that was par for the course). "In the mailbox. I mean, I know I changed a lot...but it's been five years, Izzie."

Izzie's eyes narrowed. Somehow, the timid mannerisms and unobtrusive, meek way of speaking was reflective of Ellie, but....well, that had to be a coincidence. Ellie hadn't been a guy, that kinda cinched the whole thing. Didn't matter how much time passed, you simply did not spontaneously switch gende--

Oh.

"Cuzão," she murmured under her breath, clenching her fists a bit as she realised her callous mistake. Silently, the overbearing woman turned away from Ellie...or whatever she was calling herself. Er, whatever he was calling himself. Fuck, this is gonna take some time to get used to. She knew she'd probably made an ass of herself and made Ellie feel pretty damn awkward about herself (himself, dammit)--but she couldn't bring herself to turn back around and apologise. Instead, over her shoulder, she merely grunted, "Alright. I get it," and sat herself back down at the table, glaring straight forward.

Others had coalesced--Izzie recognised them all. After the dramatic physical change that had come about to Ellie, any other change seemed paltry in comparison. Vinny--Brancade Neve, she remembered she used to call him, being a white rapper--wasn't the scrawny little kid he'd been when he was...what was it, thirteen years old? Which made him eighteen now, but based on the hat perched on his head at what looked to be a very specific angle and the general attire trend he had going, he was still into rap. But he'd, obviously, gotten taller, and a layer of musculature was clearly visible on what had once been a lanky, compact frame. Roy, too, had approached, judging by Turtle's exclamation of his name, and indeed a moment later Roy Tefon entered the restaurant--his dark blue eyes and the lazy, laid-back look about him unmistakable. Which meant the only person who had yet to show up was Lucy, Lucy and...

"Wow, he's really good, isn't he?" Alice remarked. It hadn't struck Izzie to notice the sound of someone playing guitar--after that little scene with Ellie, she'd cranked the volume on her death metal right back up to fill the awkward little moment that had followed--but when she turned, her eyes fell upon the rather distinct form of Johnathan 'Pierce' Rhodes, though it seemed Alice did not recognise him. "That's because it's Pierce," Izzie informed her, though upon consideration, it struck her that Pierce didn't seem to have recognised any of them either. It seemed rational to Izzie that if anything, he would at least recognise them collectively--after all, you had Alice with her eye-catching blue hair, Izzie decked out in spikes and bullets, and Turtle all but all over the place, it wasn't too hard to figure out that they were...a bit out of the ordinary. And it seemed to her that would enable one to put two and two together and figure out that they were, in fact, the same group of teenagers who five years ago had joined together to flee their own respective pasts.

She tilts her head and starts to see it. "Oh,it is him. Hm,my blonde roots must be showing." She saids in a joking voice. She tries to hide the redness i n her face from being embarssed. "Be right back,guys." She saids as she gets up and walks to Pierce hoping Izzie not wrong so she won't look like an idiot with serious problems. Even if she did but doesn't everyone who lives in Freedom?

She walks up to him and taps on his shoulder softly but still hard enough for him to feel it. "Hi, um i'm really sorry to bother you but would your name happen to be Johnathan but people call you Pierce for some reason? Because my name's Alice and.....Oh my god it is you." She saids as he starts to look at her. "Um,the others ae right over there,come sit with us." She adds with a smile showing the way to the others as they talk and look at them.

TURTLE
Watched as they talked quietly, and when she saw recognition in Alice's face she knew it was him. "Well, today is good very good." She said to herself, as she seems to do a lot. Turtle thinks talking to yourself can help you feel less embarrassed about yourself. If you judge yourself, you not really that embarrassed, but when someone judges you, you get damped, and depressed.

Turtle turned back around, humming to herself, tapping her feet to the beat in her mind.

"Alright. I get it."

Eli had watched as understanding dawned apon Izzie. He could tell that she wasn’t angry anymore, which was good. But now it was even worse. Things had gone from tense to just plain awkward. And when she turned away, he couldn’t help the tears forming in his eyes. Glad that she was now looking away, he walked over to an empty table and sat down. Stop being such a woman, he thought, angrily wiping his now red cheeks. She’s already disgusted enough.

Hoping that they wouldn’t notice him, Eli looked towards the forming group. They hadn’t really changed too much. Turtle was still just a bit… odd. Alice was still bright and welcoming. Izzie was still just as protective, and frightening. But it was the three boys (well, now they where men) who really caught his attention. Vinnie had never been too… attractive to Eli, but the other two boys where still just as beautiful.

Roy was still too much. He still had those eyes that made Eli want to stare at him forever. There was no denying that 12 year old Ellie had adored him, and yet envied him at the same time. Just like there was no denying that now 17 year old Eli found him insanely hot, and yet hated the fact that he was something that Eli would never be.

"Well it was either come here or spend another night in the cooler; trust me a night in jail sucks even if it is warmer than out in the cold." Vinny said leaning against the pillar next to the table. 'The gangs all here... no, that's wrong. Somebody is missing.' He took of his hat and scratched his head. He silently groaned when Izzie appraised him like a slab a meat. He remembered her nickname for him. It was something about Snow White. He had looked it up when he was a school once. Though it took him a few hours to get it due to the fact he didn't know the spelling.

"It has been a while since all of us were here. We've all changed, some for the better and some for the weirder. Not saying that's a bad thing." Vinny said taking out a smoke, the owner yelled at him there was no smoking in the restaurant, Vinny just nodded and started to play with it. He had gotten pretty good at it, kept him occupied when there was nothing better to do. Vinny smirked at his memory of his first cigarette. It had been the last time they came here and it was with Izzie. They had bummed two off of some random dude and after the first drag they both had coughing fits. He wished he could be 13 again, not a care in the world. Not having to sell drugs to keep gas in his car and smokes in his pocket, and not worrying about getting jumped or shot.

Roy had walked into the Pizza parlor and was astounded to see everyone. He grinned so widely that he swore all his teeth were showing. He noticed Turtle still jumping around, Alice glad to see them all, Izzie still being the hot head she could be, Pierce... he had brought his guitar which was good because now he had someone to play with. He noticed another man as well. He tilted his head, trying to recognize this man...he had the same eyes as Ellie... Confusion covered his face. He walked up the man and smiled. If he smiled, Roy would tell if he knew the man or not. That is how he got to recognize people. By their smile.

He could smell the pizza and his stomach growled. He loved pizza and this was his favorite place to go. He loved to hang out here. The memories of how they all used to hang out here was coming back to him and grinned again, which was awkward because he was standing in front of someone. He gave an apologetic smile that was almost like saying Sorry if I made you uncomfortable.

TURTLE
"Who are we missing?" Turtle asked Izzie. Someone was missing, but who? Anyone who knew Turtle, knew she had horrible memory, and a strange personality. Her personality though, didn't quite match what her actions, at least not all the time. You look at her, and you would think she was innocent, but she knew otherwise. She was in a gang. Of course, she wanted to leave it, but if she tried, they'd killer, because even though she was the only girl.
Turtle looked at all the others. Some hadn't changed much. Despite Ellie, being a guy now, he was still quiet, and kept to himself. Alice was still bubbly and kind, Vinny still the rebellious kid. Izzie, was still frightening, but you can't deny even she cares about the gang. Pierce still was keeping to himself, and Roy was still shy, but once you talk to him, he'll be a bit more out there. Turtle thought the boys had gotten attractive, and the girls she was jealous off-they were more beautiful than her. She couldn't help but feel jealous.

"Who are we missing?" Turtle had calmed down enough to ask, turning to Izzie. "Lucy ain't here," Izzie replied tersely. It was highly likely she'd been delayed on her way here--after all, not everyone can be as punctual as us, she mused, crossing her arms as she looked over at the collected group.

Somehow, just looking at them, even Izzie couldn't help but crack a smile--she felt the corners of her lips tugged upwards just a bit in a minute semblance of a smile, a minuscule expression of the joy she felt at being here with people she had been missing for years. And they all had their differences, but in the end, they all cared for one another. Sure, Vinny and Izzie were liable to get into a spat at any time over music, given they hated the genres the other listened to, but even then, Izzie could remember having a good time hanging out with them--hell, she'd been there when he was thirteen and had smoked his first cigarette. She could remember clearly how he'd nearly coughed up a damn lung afterwards, while she, sixteen years old and no stranger even then to substance abuse, smirked and smoked her own cigarette calmly. Alice was that same kindly, enthusiastic girl who had kept all the others anchored with her seemingly endless supplies of optimism and happiness. Roy and Pierce, the 'musicians', so to speak, of the group...which Izzie still envied them for. She would've given a hell of a lot (well, she didn't have much, but a hell of a lot of what she did have) to be able to play the music she loved much like Roy and Pierce could with the music they enjoyed, but it would've been a pointless endeavour--she'd never be as good as them, she'd probably never be good at all. She'd given up on that quite a while ago.

Turtle was still Turtle.

That was not surprising.

"It has been a while since all of us were here," Vinny said, voicing the thoughts that it seemed everyone was thinking. "We've all changed. Some for the better, and some for the weirder. Not saying that's a bad thing."

When Izzie saw Ellie decide to sit not far away at an empty table, however, the smile was replaced rapidly by a frown. Shit, I really did offend her...him, fuck it... Izzie didn't like that idea. Ellie, man or woman, regardless of his or her physical appearance, as long as he was still, at his core, 'Ellie'...Izzie cared about him. And she didn't like the idea that Ellie might have thought Izzie disapproved of him now, or that she thought he was a freak, because she didn't. Didn't matter if she went around acting as though people and their opinions of her didn't mean shit to Izzie, the idea that Ellie might now view her as looking down on him, might even think he disgusted her, was reprehensible to her...

Gritting her teeth, Izzie decided that the possibility of someone she actually cared about thinking she hated him was far worse than the thought of swallowing her pride for once. So she forced herself from her seat, made her way through the group, walking towards Ellie where he sat alone in one of the nearby booths, back turned to the others.

"So..." she trailed off as she approached, stopping at the other end of the booth and turning to face Ellie, leaning against the hard wood surface of the booth seat's side and turned her head to face him. "Guess I can't call you Ellie anymore? You go by something else?" She just couldn't straight up apologise for it. Nor could she straight up just tell him that her opinion of him as a person hadn't changed--which, she realised, she was genuinely afraid he thought. Twenty one years she'd been a stubborn, headstrong woman, twenty one years she'd refused to apologise for anything, to anyone. Not even for something like this, and not to someone whom Izzie counted among the few in life she'd come to regard as worth the risk of trusting.

Roy looked around, and watched as Izzie had come over to the man that he was standing by. He wasn't standing too close to the man, but could still hear the conversation. She had called him Ellie? That was weird. He tilted his head. Then it struck him. That could very well by Ellie! He had the same eyes and the same noise. Roy had had a crush on Ellie, so he would know what she looked like. He smiled a little and looked at the now male version of Ellie. She...he...still looked like Ellie, just more manly. That's okay It's still Ellie, but manlier. He smiled. He still liked her...him. Him.

Alice walks back to their table and smiles. "This..this is amazing. I mean we all changed so much and I mean damn you all make me feel like a baby." She comments as she moves her hair behing her ear. Wow we all changed so much but Elli-you know what i'm going to call him Eli for short. That makes sence.....right?She thinks as she looks at her bag. "Mm guys I brought that creppy ghost board that used to make me be scared out of my mind." She adds as she giggles.

TURTLE
Turtle nodded, acknowledging Izzie's answer.
1...2...3...4...5...6...7...8...9...10.
OMG, I haven't moved for 10 seconds! Turtle thought, frightened. She needed to do something. Sometimes Turtle wishes she could stay still and quiet forever, but she can't because she has ADHD, and her pills aren't very effective. Turtle looked around, and decided on going up and ordering something to drink.
"May I have a large DP?" She asked the man she recognized even after 5 years. He smiled kindly at her, and handed her her Dr. Pepper. "I see you still call Dr. Pepper DP." He commented, while she grabbed her drink. "Yes, the same way I'll sill call you Dumbledore."
She walked back to the table seeing Alice pull out a ouija board. "You brought that?" She asked sliding into a seat, sipping her drink.

So I thought how you guys are 17,18,20 and that you might be brave enough to do it with me you know unless you're to big of a chicken shit." She saids like she's making a challenege. She brushes off the dust and sets it out. "But,I mostly brought it because of what's on the back."
She saids as she flips it over to reveal all their names scrathed in to the wood and a little symbol that discribed them. "It brought back a bunch of memories so i decided why not." She adds as she leaves it flipped over.

Roy sat down at a bar stool and thought about the signifigant changes most of his friends had gone through. Vinny was not muscular and not looking like he could get blown away in the wind. He thought about everyone. Izzie was still the same, except older. She was still hard headed, but pretty all the same and he knew that she cared about everyone. Pierce was still a very good musician and he loved to listen to him play. Alice was still a wonderful friend and a great spirit. Turtle, or Christine was still unable to sit still, but that is what made her Turtle. Ellie...now a man and still cute had the biggest change. Lucy was missing, but he was sure that she was going to come. He smiled as he heard that Alice had brought the oujia board. She hated that, but Roy like it. He like ghosts.

His hunger and thirst suddenly got the best of him and he slapped the table gently, to get the man's attention. He was the man that Turtle called Dumbledore. He put his hand up to his mouth in the shape of a cup and tipped his head back. The man smiled, "Ah Roy. I know exactly what you want." Roy smiled and then pointed to a picture of his favorite mushroom and sausage pizza. The man smiled and got what he wanted. Roy was content.

Pierce looked over at the familiar looking group, but why was it so familiar? "Stupid." He commented towards himself. How could he not remember them, the group who he spent the rest of his summers with, the people who he called friends, people that he could remember forever. How could he forget them? He smiled as Alice came over and talked to him,"I remembered you, I just wasn't for sure." He said as he got up and walked towards the group,"Hey guys." He waved lazily to everyone.

Eli felt his face turn red as Roy walked towards him, and even redder when he was standing by the table. He was just about ready to say hi when Izzie came over. He looked down at the table quickly, unwilling to look the girl in the eyes, even when she spoke to him. "Guess I can't call you Ellie anymore? You go by something else?"

Eliot looked up and couldn’t help but smile, just a bit. “I prefer Eli, but,” He looked down again, “Uhm, if you’re uncomfortable with that, you can still call me Ellie.”

He looked over to Roy, even as he walked over to the stool, (It was rather odd that he didn’t stay to tal--- never mind) and then back to Izzie.

Izzie's frown intensified as Eli refused to look at her, staring right down at the table when she spoke to him. Then again...isn't that exactly what I did? she mused. Right after that little...'moment' in which Izzie realised she really was talking to Ellie. She'd refused to meet his gaze--because maybe there might have been shame in her eyes, an apologetic quality she didn't need anyone to see. But when she spoke, she saw a small smile alight on his features. Which caused Izzie to do the same, in her own minuscule way. As long as he wasn't holding anything against her. "I prefer Eli, but....um, if you're uncomfortable with that, you can still call me Ellie."

"You kiddin'?" she retorted gruffly, shaking her head. "You want me to call you Eli, then that's what I'm gonna do." She paused as he glanced away to look at Roy, giving her a moment to choose her next words--and when he turned back, she simply picked out what came to mind first. "'cos I know that regardless of what I call you, you're still the same person inside. That's all I care about."

Huh...I guess that came out...well, okay, she thought to herself as she looked back to Eli. At least, I don't think I made an ass of myself with that. Confidence bolstered, she nodded back towards the group and said to Eli, "Now why don't you come over and sit with us? I mean..." the smile widened somewhat into a smirk. "You did come here for us, right?"

"Man, this really weird. I need to get some fresh air." Vinny said walking out of the pizza place. He needed to think about how much has changed in the small amount time that has gone by. He sat out on the curb and lit a smoke, he inhaled deeply and blew out the smoke. He could feel the nicotine rushing through his veins now. He smirked at how things were and how things are gonna be. He remembered the Ouija Board. He knew somebody pushed it. He figured it was Izzie. He pulled out his knock off Ipod and put his earbuds in and started listening to some rap, he soon stopped it and pulled out his pad. He wrote down some rhymes:
I sit here and come out of the give and take,
To come and rap at your fucking wake.
I never truly liked you, you fake,
Rapping against you is like cake.
You be hatin' on my rhyme,
so i won't even give you the time.
Then you try to make me mime.
You little piece of slime
You trying to look up a little girl skirts
Why you trying to be a pervert
When I destroy you I'm gonna change this shirt,
Then I'm gonna hit the Eminem Concert

Vinny sighed and put the pad away those rhymes sucked. He needed to find some inspiration. People think rapping is easy, sometimes it just comes to you and other times it doesn't.

She buts her lips and smiles before she opens her small month. "Wanna try it right now? I mean I know it's morning but I won't be holding on to anyone's shoulder like I used to and I won't end up crying from being so scared." She saids witha raised eyebrow. "You know unles you "Young Adults" are to afraid to do it." She adds as she tilts her head to the left a little and smirks knowing they all love a challenge. I can hear me crying now. Better get the tissues out. double stuffed.c She thinks as she bits her thumb nail and get a nasty taste inb her. She frowns and takes out a piece of nail polish off her tongue. "Ew,gross." She saids as she lets to nail polish go to the floor.

"You want me to call you Eli, then that's what I'm gonna do.'cos I know that regardless of what I call you, you're still the same person inside. That's all I care about."

Eli found a smile spreading across his face at that. He didnt mean for it to, he had been upset just a minute ago, but for her to say that meant alot to him; more then he would let on. "Thanks" he said, his voice a bit louder then it had been before. "I really appreciate it" And he did.

"Now why don't you come over and sit with us? I mean...You did come here for us, right?"

Eliot grinned, "No, I came here for the pizza" He said sarcastically. "You guys where merely an after thought"

He smiled and sat down by Turtle, hyperactive as usual. Positioning his guitar he started to play it in a fast but slow old country pace. Started humming to himself, he looked over at Izzie and frowned a bit, open minded but she couldn't help herself. Then looked at Alice,"I'm not afraid of anything. The real question is: Are you,?" He said it while playing his guitar in a daring rhythm. Knowing that since the were in there young teens last couple of summers ago, she was scared like a cat getting dunk in a pool of cold water. Even though she already said she wouldn't cry for being so scared, you can never be right the first time.

TURTLE
"She's only scared when its night." Turtle said, taking another gulp. "Oh geez...I forgot to ask for caffeine free." She turned and looked at everyone, and evil smile spreading across her angle face. "You're all fucked."

Roy had eaten his pizza and drank his Mountain Dew and then turned back to the group. The old ouija board was out and turned over to the side where they had etched their initials in. He remembered putting "RT" and then a large X over it. He meant it to symbolize that he cannot speak. He frowned. He envied those that could. Lucy chose not to speak, but he just couldn't. He could make noise, and when he laughed he sounded like he was wheezing. He sighed and then stood up and stretched. He was tall, 5'7. He had bangs that covered his left eye when it fell in his face. He had deep blue eyes that looked like the ocean. He smirked. Why was he thinking about himself? Well, what else could he do. He couldn't speak so he had to express himself. He had to dress the way he felt. People could probably see it in his face, but he liked to dress his emotion. Today he dressed in a white muscle t-shirt with a black shirt, opened in the front over it. He wore jeans that were a little loose. He looked around at everyone, flipping his hair back.

The smile on Eli's face widened. "Thanks," he said, timidity diminishing, vanishing from his voice. "I really appreciate it." And Izzie had to quell her own smile. Never a woman prone to extended or overt displays of emotion and feeling, she allowed herself only to make minuscule expressions, granting only the most insignificant window into her own feelings. It was a habit from years past--giving overt indications of your feelings and emotions was a source of weakness. It gave others an opportunity to take advantage of you, to hurt you, to maim you. And ten years later she wasn't able to shake off that long-held conviction, not even when among people she knew she trusted.

"No, I came here for the pizza," Eli retorted sardonically to her following words. "You guys were merely an afterthought." Izzie feigned offence, her thin, dark lips still pulled in a smirk. "Well shit, I didn't know the pizza was so damn good around here." She glanced over to the main group--seeing, much to her distaste, that old accursed Ouija board. Oh, how it'd gotten on Izzie's nerves that first time five years ago Alice had taken the damn thing out. The point was lost on her. The dead don't communicate with the living. The reason being that they're kinda dead. Izzie reached up in an almost unconscious motion to her neck, where her long fingers stretched out to take hold of the object that hung from a simple thread around her tanned, slim neck--a cross. A mangled, rusted, almost unrecognisable metal cross.

It wasn't that Izzie was religious. In point of fact, she wasn't even spiritual. The cross, violently disfigured and mutilated, was there to make a point of that. That there was no hope to be found in supernatural explanations of why things happened--that there was no way of using religion or spirituality to try and justify, or understand, or comprehend why tragedies happened. They just did. The world had no particular way of working--it just was. And people had no particular reason for existing in that world--they just did, and there were no higher powers, no spirits of the deceased, nothing beyond the physical to grant comfort to them in times of distress. That was why she thought the Ouija board was such bullshit. It was marketed to gullible, hopeless fools who couldn't let go of past memories and let the memory of the departed rest in peace...

"Well, let them have their fun," she decided aloud, her hand falling from the mangled cross. Five years ago, Izzie would've marched right in and informed them all that Ouija boards were, in fact, a trademarked board game created by Hasbro in 1890, and that the whole spiritual aspect had only come into it when some idiot in the 1910s popularised some rumour that it was used to speak to the dead. Not now, though. Maybe she had matured that much, at the very least--enough to simply let the kids have their fun. She glanced back down at Eli. "Well, I'm none too keen to go and observe the calling of the unrestful dead. Guess I'll just stand myself here. Unless, of course, you take significant issue." She said it with a note of sarcasm--even though there was still a part of her that was concerned that he actually would.
