Personality:
Image
Shawn is a laid back kind of guy with a somewhat blunt, and crude, sense of of humor. He's the furthest thing from judgmental so he easily makes friends with all kinds of people. He also happens to be quite the flirt with quite the charming accent.......but much to the disbelief of most who know him, he's not a womanizer who sleeps around, he simply enjoys making women smile. Hell, he'd even play-hit on a gay/straight male friend, just to make the friend, and other friends around, laugh.

Underneath the personable persona though, is a kid who craves the one thing he acts as if he doesn't need - love.

- Partisanship
- Cigarette Smoke[even though he casually smokes himself]

Role: Male Hopeless 1

History: Shawn had a rather normal upbringing. His mother is the current prime minister of Britain, and his father is a well known business mogul, but he never felt overly spoiled. His parents did a good job of raising him to not waste money on idiotic things like a garage full of cars, 10 quads, and 200 dollar pairs of shoes.......so in school, he often appeared to be of the same income level as the average kid, even though he was far from it.

In high school he was the star Wide Receiver on his football team, and sidelined as the schools soccer team goalie......so mixing that in with his personality, he was a pretty popular and well-liked kid........even among the so-called "social rejects".
Also in High School, was where he had his only long term relationship.....with a girl named Zdenka. From grades 9-11 the two were one of the "it" couples around campus.......but tragically towards the end of their Jr. year, Zdenka was killed in a horrid train accident.......leaving Shawn broken hearted. The girl he thought was his true love........gone forever........pretty much nailed his heart shut from love.
At first he was bitter, but with the help of friends and family he was able to get past her death in over the next year and went on to finish school with honors.

He currently has forgone college to do political events for his mother and charity work for kids on the side, but he recently decided to join the Military. He leaves in a day for basic training, much to the chagrin of his parents. But at the end of everything, they support their son to the utmost, and are proud he has chosen to help defend his country and their allies.[and doing so, coupled with his gracious charity work, he has become quite the political media-darling........often more popular than his own mother among younger voters]

Sample Post:

It was a cold rainy morning in London, and Shawn had just had just gotten out of the shower.
He stood in his expansive room with damp hair, and nothing more on than a towel around his waist.........he was watching the news, as random reports of his departure for the military intermingled with the latest celebrity gossip, weather reports, and global tragedies.

"Another grand day in jolly ol' England eh?" he said to his pet Iguana, Mr. Poppers.
The lizard paid him no mind, and Shawn simply shrugged.




Within the next several minutes, the military recruit was dressed in a pair of black and Grey plaid boxers, and wore a simple pair of black sandals on his feet, after brushing his teeth and casually combing his hair straight back.

"That's enough for the folks....." he said, before down the stairs he went.



Once arriving in the large kitchen, his parents were easy enough to find, drinking coffee at the table, with their blackberries a buzz and a barely touched news paper.

"Oh, my baby! Come here!!" said Hilary Santorum, his mother, as she stood and made her way over to him in the kitchen entrance.

"M-mum......you're acting as if i'm going off to die....." Shawn let out barely, while his mother hugged the breath out of him.........literally. ".....you'll see me in a few weeks."

"FEW? You mean SEVERAL dear! That is going to be-" his father, Kennedy Santorum, quickly cut off his mother.
"-an eternity to your mum. God help us all, i have no idea how she's going to survive.......me however, i can't wait..........frees up an extra room!"

Shawn cracked a huge smile at his father, but his mother simply smacked the businessman on the back of the head......playfully of course. "Don't say such silly things! Our boy's going off to basic training! This is serious Ken!"

Hilary was by no means finished speaking, but her phone began to ring and she knew she had to take the call.......... "Ahh, excuse me.........duty calls!" she said annoyed, before walking out of the kitchen and into the living room.
Shawn nodded to his mother, before taking her seat beside his dad.

The two were silent for a moment......before Kennedy finally spoke up. "You know son, we're both very proud of you. We might not be the most perfect pair around, but it's nice to see we raised a fine lad and a beautiful daughter."

Shawn smiled at his fathers warm words, and placed his hand atop Kennedy's. "Well ya two are the closest to perfect a guy could get in my book! Now i don't know about Kelly being beautiful, crazy 13's will be here soon i hear! She's likely to morph into a nutty troll!" he said, the last part being a joking-jab at his soon-to-be teenage sister.

After the two men shared a small laugh, Shawn removed his hand from his dads. "I think i'll take a bagel upstairs......eat while i get dressed, i'll stop down before i leave."




-------------------------------------------




Twenty minutes had passed since Shawn had grabbed the bagel from the kitchen and made his way back up to his room.
He now stood in front of his bedrooms full length mirror, dressed in black socks, black dress shoes, and an un-tucked white dress shirt with the first two buttons left undone. Even though he didn't wish to, he planned to tuck the shirt in before leaving through the front doors.....knowing the media would likely be there.

"Well i think that's all Mr. P.......now i just need to zip this duffel bag and i'll-" Shawns self-communication suddenly halted as he turned towards his bed.....where he quickly noticed a golden envelop beside his duffel bag, with his full name written on the middle of it.
"Where the heck did this come from??" he whispered, as he picked up the letter...........studying the writing for a few moments before slowly opening it up.


As soon as the young recruit pulled out the letter, and began to read it aloud, a woman mysteriously began to appear in front of him.
However, he wouldn't notice her until he finished reading the letter:


Dear Hopeless Lover,

I am the Divine Goddess of Love. I am here to offer you a chance at true love. You will be transported to a beautiful island where you will meet five other hopeless lovers like yourself. There you will meet the love of your life. The one born to become your lover and yours alone as you were born for them. You must find them and agree that you are indeed soulmates. Your chosen lover can choose to reject your offer.

The island house will be provided for you with months worth of clothing, food, and the like. You will be living in luxuries while at your stay. Males will sleep in the west wing and females on the east wing. You are not forbidden to not follow that code.

If you cannot find true love in the time the magic vine takes to reach the top of the house, you will spend the rest of your life loveless. Forever alone. You will wither and die without your soul mate to hold you as you have failed to find him or her.

Signing this contract will allow you a shot at true love. A chance most do not receive and none have dared to turn down.




"Signing this contract will allow me a shot at true love? Are you serious!??" he said out loud to himself, with a smirk on his face.

"Why yes young man......i am very serious." an elegant voice in front of him responded.......causing him to instantly drop the letter from in front of his face and jump backwards.

"Bloody hell! Who are-

The woman cut him off. "Do not be afraid.......i am not here to harm you. I am the Divine Goddess of Love, and that letter is my offer to you.......will you agree to its terms??"

The self-proclaimed goddess quickly pulled out a golden tipped feather pen and held it out towards Shawn.....who soon after began to laugh.


"For f**k's sake, i'm seeing things now? How schizophrenic......"

As his laughing faded, a smirk appeared on his face. "Well, at least my demented visions are that of beautiful women.....i think i can live with that."

The woman simply smiled "I am no figment of your imagination. If i was that, would i be able to conjure up, this......."
Within thirty seconds, a locket appeared in the womans free hand. It took Shawn only seconds to recognize it as a locket belonging to Zdenka.....he went to grab for it, but the woman made it disappear as soon as his hand touched hers.


Shawn just stared blankly at the goddess........speechless. He didn't know whether to be angry, or impressed. But before he could make up his mind, she spoke again.
"I am sorry for your loss........but her departure simply proves your soul mate is still out there. I am willing to give you the chance to meet them......but you must agree to the contract. So please, take this pen.........sign your name with it, if you're willing to give this chance for a love, a try."

He still didn't know if he believed the woman. Her story, and offer, sounded insane.......but she had made something he knew was buried with Zdenka, appear in her hands........hands that he touched psychically........so she couldn't just be a figment of his imagination, right?


While still puzzled, something inside urged Shawn to just grab the stupid golden pen.....and that he did.
Seconds later, his name was signed, and then both the letter and pen disappeared from his hands and reappeared in the womans....

"Well, i will see you soon then...........very soon. Say goodbye to your parents, your sister, and head to base........things will all fall into place then, just trust me"

And with those words, the woman slowly, but surely, began to disappear in front of his eyes...........leaving behind a wide-eyed, and slightly shaken, Shawn........who simply stared out the window the woman was just standing in front of.


-------------------------------------------


He would soon do as she told him to though........
And the last thing he would remember, would be falling asleep in his new barracks on the local army base............what was in store for him when he woke, he hadn't a clue....


Other:

- Smokes mostly when bored, nervous, or upset.
- Has an insatiable appetite and has yet to meet a person to out eat him.
- Is a touchy-feely person with those he's comfortable with.
- Will often hum his own songs, or favorite songs by other artist, out loud.
- Will have his Samsung Galaxy SII with him on the island, which will surprisingly never run out of battery life, but of course have no signal.

So begins...

His eyes began to flutter in the soft humid breeze.
After a few seconds, his eyes finally opened all the way......to see bright blue skies, with only a few sets of clouds, staring down at him.

"What the....." Shawn wonder aloud to himself, completely bewildered.
The last thing the exhausted recruit remembered was being fitted into his uniform, and then falling asleep inside his barracks in that said uniform.
But now here he lay......in what felt like sand, underneath a brilliantly blue sky.

"Dreaming mate, you're just dreamin" he whispered, before sitting up.

Ahead of him was the Ocean....it was transparently clear, and a mixed shade of bright green and blue, like the waters off the coast of Florida, or in the Caribbean. "Well then, it's official......i'm definitely dreaming, because these sure aren't the waters of jolly ol' England"

Shawn sighed and removed his hat, so that he could run his fingers through his combed back hair, before swiftly popping to his feet, and then brushing the sand off the front and back of his blue and white dress uniform

"Dreaming myself onto such a beautiful scene........fully dressed as such, eh? You've gotta be kidding......"





He'd put his hat back atop his head, and walk along the shoreline for several minutes, before finally spotting a grand mansion a hundred or so yards inland, and making his way towards it.


"That letter i signed......." he said to himself as he cautiously made his way up towards the large front doors.
Shawn would knock loudly twice, but after receiving no response, the young man would decide to just try his hand at opening the doors himself.

Much to his surprise, they were unlocked, and so he made his way in & shut the door behind him.

The entrance lobby was grand.......the floor made of marble, the walls at LEAST seventeen feet high, and the luxurious stone staircase in front of him was gigantic........but to Shawn, it was only somewhat impressive, seeing as how his mothers status had garnered him entrance into places in his country FAR grander.

"The woman......or goddess i should say, was real?" he thought, before walking to the foot of the staircase.
He wouldn't make it more than a step or two up before hearing a womans voice call out - causing him to stop in his tracks, and look up to the top of the staircase.....
Shawn could tell there would be a choice to go either left or right once he reached the top of the staircase, going to two different wings he guessed...........but what he wasn't sure of, was which way the womans voice came from. So after finally walking up to the top of the staircase he decided to call out'; "Ello? Is.....someone there?", before taking his hat off and placing it under his arm........just in time to hear another womans voice.

Ivy Park

Ivy jumped as Felicity neared her with her obvious Australian accent. She smiled warmly hoping to make a good first impression to the taller blonde woman. Before she could give her answer another girl closer to her age approached with bright red hair and the same question. "Hey, if you guys went through the same encounter with a pretty goddess like me, I'm guessing we're on an island. In the middle of no where. Inside, as I can see, a gorgous mansion," she looked around on the high ceilings and glamourous painted walls. "If I remember correctly, we're here to find our true love?" She wrinkled her nose cutely and shrugged her shoulders. "I really hope you understand who, what, and why I'm about, because I would be really embarrassed if I sounded insane right now," she giggled a little really meaning her words.

Someone else, a man, called from down the staircase. Ivy instinctively bent down her head to look. A man with blonde hair and gorgous serious looking eyes appeared. The color drained from her face. "Oppa*?," she whispered to herself noticing how much the man resembled her older brother, Blake, who died two years prior. "Blake?" she cried and flung herself down the short hallway. Throwing her small five foot four inch body towards the tall six foot man. She wrapped her arms around his neck like a child. Suddenly she realized he couldn't possibly be her dead brother. She watched him get buried. Ivy let go and dropped to the ground like a stone and cowarded a few inches away. Rubbing her foot aganist her ankle, she studdered to apologize, "I- I- I'm sorry... I did-didn't mean to d-do that. You lo-look like my b-brother. I- I-I'm sorry," she was close to tears. The water threatened to burst from her eyes. Even now she still hadn't forgotten or gotten over his death. Ivy was always a shipwreck when the thought really went into his brain.

*Oppa means older brother in Korean

It wasn't long before an additional young woman could be heard. She yelled out "Blake!", before running towards Shawn.
He wanted to leap out of the way, but knowing the stairs were behind him he instead let the short & small-framed girl leap into his chest, and wrap her arms around his neck.
"Well gee, i know she said i was suppose to find love here, but that was a tad bit quick........" he whispered jokingly, before the woman suddenly let go of him, and began to back up, obviously embarrassed.
"I- I- I'm sorry... I did-didn't mean to d-do that. You lo-look like my b-brother. I- I-I'm sorry...." she muttered, before her eyes began to water.


Shawn quickly glanced over at the other two girls, before stepping towards the one in front of him who was close to tears.
"It's quite fine luv....really." he said with a warm smile. "My dog has hugged me tighter, and at least you didn't knock me down the stairs in the process, like he would of......"
He had hoped his attempt at a joke would make the girl lighten up a bit, perhaps smile, as he pulled out a handkerchief from his jackets left breast pocket and held it out towards her. "Here....don't wish to ruin such a pretty dress with tears, hmm?" he whispered, his British accent clearly evident the more he talked.......
He wasn't exactly sure why thinking she had seen her brother would make the girl cry, but he decided against asking, afraid it would upset her more........and instead turned his head in the direction of the other girls several yards away, and nodded, as if to say "hello".

She walks to the stairs to see the two girls she saw before and a new person. 'Wow,He is gorgous.' she thinks to herself. "Hello,I am um..Xeina and you are?" She saids walking down the stairs so she can actually shake his hand like a fomal meeting. Once she's down the stairs she extends her hand waiting for the male to shake it. When she notice she has paint on her hand from the last night in her regular home."Oh,um. My apologies." She switches hands and chuckles embarassed. She smiles friendly so she can make a good impression on everyone. She looks around,she never looks people in the eyes unless she's mad so she look down at the ground. She hears another voice and turns around to see another girl walk to the stairs. She smiles and saids "Hello."
So many things are going through her mind like 'Is this really real?','Am I dreaming?" And 'Who the heck are these people?'.

Only a few minutes after offering his handkerchief to the young woman had hugged him earlier, another woman appeared, dressed in a purple hoodie and a pair of shorts. Shawn couldn't help but feel a bit overwhelmed.
"Surely this isn't what the woman meant by finding true love....." he said under his breath "....living in a house full of just young women? That's a bit much eh......"

It was seconds after he finished his statement that the fourth girl approached him.

"Hello,I am um..Xeina and you are?" she said, as she made her way from the same wing of the mansion the others came from and held out here hand. Before he grab it though, she quickly switched the paint-covered hand with her clean one.

Shawn couldn't help but smile, as he shook her hand. "Artist?" he asked "I enjoy painting myself.......even though i do think my sketches are a bit better. The names Shawn however........Shawn Santorum. It's nice to meet you......all, of you"

He'd let go of Xeina's hand and took a few steps away from the staircase, before turning around again.
"I know this might be odd, but anyone care to explain how they got here? Curious to see if it's as, unique, for you all as it was for me."
He didn't want to come out and mention a goddess with a magical contract. They'd find him crazy, he assumed. So instead, he thought he'd let them explain their arrivals themselves, to see if he really was where he thought, or if he was just losing his mind.
But before they could answer, a voice could be heard calling out behind Shawn.........but this time, it was clearly a males voice.

"So...did you guys all get...y'know, invited here? I'm sure you know what I'm talking about if you did. If not then...well, what is this all about?" said the man......but the first thing Shawn could muster up as a response was; "Ah, someone else with a willy!"
He quickly realized how inappropriate that might of come off to anyone would knew what a willy was, and tightened his lips........to try and hide his soft laugh.
"Forgive me mate, my names Shawn, and yes...i was invited here, by um....a woman with a....letter."
Shawn cleared his throat for a moment, before beginning again, now only a few yards away from the newcomer into the room. "I'm thinking these beautiful gals appeared here the same way.......but so far, that is all who's here.....me, you, and four lovely women.....who so far, are all rather nice.."
His voice trailed off towards the end of his statement. Sure, he didn't mind the company of four attractive women......and it was better that he wasn't overwhelmed by being alone with them, but just ONE additional guy didn't make much sense to him either. Wouldn't two women be heartbroken with such numbers? He couldn't bare to put anyone through that kind of pain, and knew it..........so he hoped strongly, that as the one male appear, so would two others.

Shaking off his worries though, he turned towards the the guy now directly beside him. "And what would your name be chap?"

Ivy Park

Ivy held back the tears and forced a shy smile to appear on her small face at Shawn's light hearted joke. She took the hankerchief and tried her best to wipe her eyes and not smudge her eyeliner. "Thanks," she mumbled returning the article to the handsome blonde who later introduced himself as Shawn. She grinned up at him pushing the sad emotions about her brother. Grateful that he hadn't asked her any questions about her brother she bowed to him slightly as a formal greeting, out of respect mostly. "Hello, Shawn, Xeina," she smiled and turned around to notice another Asian girl behind the taller blonde woman with the accent. And then another blonde boy came up the stairs. She looked at him and smiled just in time for Shawn to make his statement about a "Willy".

Ivy covered her mouth as a giggle came on. She was still laughing when she spoke next. "My name is Ivy, by the way. And I got a letter contract thing from the divine goddess of love?" She shrugged her shoulders and stick her hands out in that body language that meant 'I don't know. i guess so.' She looked back at the blonde woman and the Asian girl watching their reactions. Turning her attention back to Shawn, Xeina, and the new boy, she added, "She made me sign a contract to come here. I hope you know what I'm talking about," She bounced on the balls of her feet slightly. Suddenly, her stomach made an embarrassing grumbling noise. It churned signalling her lack of food. "Hehe," she muttered while crossing her arms over her stomach.

Tommy Jeong

Tommy shot up suddenly as he felt that his bed felt suddenly soft. This didn't feel like his bed at his apartment. This one was soft and felt like a cloud. His other bed was old and bumpy. He didn't have enough money for a new one, but he lived. He rubbed the sleep out of his almond shaped eyes, noticing his glasses were off. When he turned for his glasses, he noticed the room. Oh, hell no this wasn't his room. What is this? I don't even... Then he remembered what happened after his roommate had left. The letter, his name, the goddess, and love. He bit his lip and took his glasses, putting them on before getting out of the surprisingly relaxing bed. He looked down at his clothing, just exactly what he put when he went to sleep last night: no shirt (showing off his nice chest and abdomen), green plaid pajama pants, and black Chinese slippers. He looked over at the mirror that was in the room, seeing his reflection. He rearranged the charm necklace around his neck and bit his lip again. I really need to get over her... He was brought out of his thoughts as he heard faint talking. What? Others? But...what if they're...girls? He gulped before walking out of the room.

Walking down the hallways, following the voices, Tommy eventually found them. The Asian first spotted the two males and smiled. He walked up towards the little group. "Um, anyone...know where we are?" Good god that they weren't girls...wait a second. He took a better look, seeing five girls in the group. His face suddenly turned pink, trying to hide it with his glasses. He also had no shirt on, which he hoped none of the girls would laugh at him. He knew he wasn't good-looking, but he didn't want it to be rubbed in his face. Two girls caught his eye, seeing as they were Asian like himself. He was sort of glad that at least he could act a little normal to them, but the other girls, he didn't know what he was going to do.

Xeina
When Shawn walks to talk to the other male Xeina starts to wipe the paint on to her jeans. She starts to chuckle at Shawn use of the word 'Willy'. I have heard of many uses of the word willy but never that. Hmm,maybe it's a british thing. She thinks to herself and shrugging. She starts to think about that lady she saw yesterday, her not knowing how to keep her mouth she just comes out and saids "Did any of you happen to get this letter from this...this um she said she was a goddess, the goddess of love i think is what she said anyways, Because this doesn't make any sence. Not to sound completely insane or anything but nothing else adds up but that letter." She has a questioning look on her face not knowing if the same thing happened to them or not. Wow, ok now I sound completely INSANE! She saids to herself as she imagines herself doing a face palm to her face.

She chuckle nervously wondering what the other people were thinking about her sudden out busrt but knowing that they probubly were wondering the exact same thing. looks at all the people bitting her lip because she thought she sounded stupid and yet pretty crazy. She puts her hands behind her back and just starts to mess with her fingernails.

Even surrounded by all these beautiful girls, the thought of breakfast still took priority for Toby's attention, and he followed them to the kitchen. He smirked at how Xeina mentioned being able to make 'cereal and milk', but was pleased when her skillset proved a little broader than that and she started making pancakes.

"Well it so happens I usually do the cooking when I stay at my dad's." he said, "Not that I'm a master chef, but my dad's worse!"

He pulled out another frying pan and found some streaky bacon and some unusual sausages. It took him a while to realise that the sausages looked odd because they were vegetarian sausages. That's interesting, he thought, I wonder if the person who stocked this fridge knew someone here was a vegetarian...and I wonder who it is?

He took position next to Xeina at the stove and began to fry up the bacon and sausages.

"So who fancies putting some toast on to go with this? I think we're gonna eat well here...OH! And I nearly forgot."

He left Xeina to watch his pans just for a moment while he raided the cabinets and eventually found what he was looking for...a cafétiere and some grounds. In truth, the whole situation was fascinating enough that he already felt sufficiently woken up, but one of the other girls had declared the need for coffee, so he put a pot on to brew.

"Mmm yeah that's the stuff..." he said out loud with a grin as wonderful breakfast smells started to combine. And in a peculiar moment of realisation, he suddenly placed where he'd seen Shawn's face before. Really...? No it couldn't be...well it wasn't as if that would be the strangest thing that had happened this morning. "Hey what about you Mr Prime Minister? Would you prefer tea?"

She smiles "Well,at least I don't have to be the chef. I'm not an amazing Chef either." She saids as shegets some pancakes out of the skillet and put them on a plate. She looks at Toby "Come on, be nice. Don't jugde people and he's not a prime minister besides they have a monachy in England. Right?" She saids as she looks at Shawn. She looks back at Toby "Besides he's a marine from what I can tell. But that's me making a guess from the classes i actually didn't sleep in. That's rare." She saids as she gets the rest of the pancakes out and puts the skillet in the sink to cool off. "Come and get it!" She saids so everyone can hear her. Her not reall ybeing hungry goes to the table and lays her head down. "So tired and lazy." She saids in a hush tone. She falls asleep and wakes back up knowing that not how you make a good impression. She puts her head up and wants coffee. "Anyone else craving caffine other than me?" She asks in the kitchen seeing if she was the only one.

OOC Notes

After Toby introduced himself, Shawn made his way down the stairs and towards the kitchen with everyone else


There was small conversing about who would be making the food, but before he could offer, others stepped up to the plate and he gladly moved aside to let them take the helm.

He'd smile widely at Toby's joke about him wanting tea, and laugh kindly at Xeinas attempt to stick up for him......but would purposely let the "Prime Minister" inquiry slide under the rug, as everyone suddenly became more interested in eating food.
Shawn however, wasn't hungry at the moment............and instead, excused himself as the others ate, so he could find his room.





*-*-*-**---*-----------------------------------------------*-*-----------------------------------------------*---**-*-*-*





After making his way back up the grand staircase, it didn't take long for him to find the mens hall, and then subsequently his own room, which happened to be dead last.
The door was white with gold trim and his name on the door was also surrounded by gold trim, similar to the office doors inside his house., which he always found a little too business-regal for his taste, but he shrugged his shoulders at the design and opened the door.

To say the room was beautiful would be an understatement.
Quite like his room at home, the walls were tall, the closet was roomy, the bathroom was grand, his small acoustic and electric guitar collection hung on the wall above his large bed, and the outdoor balcony was expansive. But unlike his home, he had a beautiful view of the beach...........which we admired for a moment, before placing his hat on the foot of the bed and then slowly undressing.
It wouldn't take him long to pick out a pair of black Form Athletic swimming trunks w/ red and white flames, a black WEC t-shirt and a pair of black Adidas sandals.

Once dressed, he sat on the end of his bed unsure of where to go....and much to his surprise, out of his pants pocket fell his Samsung Galaxy SII..
"Woah.....my phone?.....I wonder if i could catch a signal here........perhaps a little GPS guidance?" he thought out loud - taking a second to stare out of the balcony doors, before standing and making his way out of his room.

Within only a minute or two he had made his way back towards the front doors and slipped out of them.
The walk to the beach was brief, and familiar since he had to make a similar trek earlier.

Shawn would stop only a few feet from the tides incoming water before he held up his phone to the sky.and began to fiddle with it. But after several minutes it was obvious nothing was working......from the web, texting, gps......nothing. So after noticing his battery power was a bit low, he decided to stop trying....and slid the phone into his pocket.


He then crossed his arms behind his head and stared out into the sea, a place he loved to spend his time................it wouldn't take long for him to get lost in thought.



"Where are we?"

"Will this work?."

"Why did i sign that letter?."

"Are we missed at home?...."
".....or did this goddess find some way to stop time?"
Were all thoughts that ran through Shawn head, as he stood under the sun and enjoyed the nearly perfect weather..........warm enough to swim, but cool enough to not to be a miserable experience after half an hour.
The young fighter had half the mind to take his shirt off where he stood, drop his phone, and go for a swim......but before he could he heard an awkward sound, loud enough to scare a few birds from the tree tops.
"What the...." Shawn thought, before slowly making his way through dense tree foliage several feet to his right.


Nearly ten minutes later, he had finally made his way through the tress and out onto a piece of beach across the island.........where a long dock went out into the ocean.

"Bloody hell.......are you serious?" he said, as he made his way to the end of a dock, and up to something he hadn't seen in person for years..........a luxurious houseboat, sitting atop water at least a few hundred feet deep.


Shawn Quickly climbed aboard and began to nose around.
There were two floors, not including the roof-top.......and inside were three bathrooms, seven bedrooms, a few sitting areas, a decent kitchen, two hot tubs, nice electronics, and all other basic amenities any other "home" would have.

He then made his way outside on the boats deck, where a few table sets and a couple of grills sat.....in an attempt to see if there was any way to move the rig. But it was quickly apparent that it was inoperable, as Shawn noticed the lack of any engines, or steering room.
It was as if this boat was made to only float.........here...........for them to enjoy.......by the dock only.

OOC Notes

Ivy was going to make conversation with the people just to get to know them, but refusing to be rude, she allowed their conversations to continue with each other. Xeina left for the beach and Toby had also disappeared. The other Asian girl named Alysha had gone. She was going to start a conversation with the shy Asian guy without a shirt, but he left just as quickly. She was left to play with her food as the others slowly dispersed on towards the beach and around the house. She felt alone again. She almost wanted to go back home and see her brother again.

Ivy finished her food and decided to clean up for everyone. Really not minding, she gathered the plates and rinsed them under the faucet. She hummed a little as she laid them inside the dishwasher. Finishing up, she grabbed a glass of milk and decided to explore like the others. She went in the same direction where Tommy and Alysha had sneaked off to, but ended up on the entrance to the other side of the beach. She saw Shawn on the sand carrying what looked like a cellphone in his hand to the sky. He put it away and turned the other way to the trees. "Where could he be off to?" she said to herself and followed with the glass of milk still in her hand.

She walked over the the trees and uncovered the boat swaying softly with the calm waves that barely moved the sand. She was feeling a bit shy since she hadn't made the best impression with him, jumping on him like a crazed girl. She bit her lower lip and lowered her body so she wouldn't get hit by the branches. Ivy wanted to make a better impression. Pondering how to do so, he disappeared into the large house boat only to appear on the deck where tables and grills were laid out for a dozen people party. Climbing the few rungs, she smiled cutely and greeted Shawn. "Hello! Shawn, right?" She put down her glass of milk on one of the tables. "What is this?" She touched the counter tops and then realized how stupid her question was. "Well, I know it's a boat. I thought the goddess would give us one since this is an island surrounded by water. It's quite big. Biggest one I have ever seen. Can we drive it?" She looked at him with big eyes having to angle for eyes upwards since he was so tall. The sun was getting in her eyes so she had to squint and shield her face with her hand. "Also, would like to go swimming? I don't trust myself alone in the water."
