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
Appearance:(Picture please. No anime)
What are you ashamed of: (Gang,Emo,Deaf,etc.)

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?
"And I won't afraid at night either. If I do i will let you all throw me in the ice cold ocean as long as someones there to get me out. You with being legally blind at night and all. But other than that ask the board a question.
"OH, can I ask first?!" Turtle put her drink down, placed her legs under her bottom, and leaned over, pushing her glasses up. "I love ghosts- they're badass." Sh mused, her eyes roaming the board.
She shook his head. His dad didn't care where he was, and his sister won't go looking for him. He shrugged, that was fine by him.
"Oh hell mother fucking yes." Turtle began, "Um...will I ever fall in love?" Even though Turtle thought love didn't exist, she really wished it did. The question was slightly overrated, it was pretty common for a girl to ask.
The piece moved, causing Turtle to jump, she didn't expect it to move in broad daylight. She couldn't see what it was on. "What does it say?" She asked Alice. Probably NO.
"Oh hey it's pretty outside...Wait, what was I talking about? Oh right,don't you want to see me get my hair dyed blonde when i'm become to afraid." She said knowing everyone can't wait to see her cry from the game. She leans on the door, waiting to see if Roy nods or shakes his head showing that he's fine.
"Just a bit ain't even the half of it," Izzie commented. More like, complete and utter bullshit.
"I think I would prefer to sit with you," he decided, turning back to her and brushing the bangs of his hair from his eyes. Eyebrow raised slightly, Izzie shrugged in what could've come off as a rather nonchalant manner. "Alright then." She pushed herself from the sleek wood surface of the booth chair and then moved to seat herself on its cushion, across from Eli. "Would you by any chance like something to eat, by the way? I'm kinda starving."
"Nah, I'm okay. Order what you like, though." Izzie instinctively reached down to check her wallet for how much money she had--just in case, perhaps, Eli didn't have enough money to pay himself? Something like that. A carry on from those years prior--it seemed she still couldn't shake the feeling that, as the eldest, she was supposed to be responsible for everyone. They were all older now, and they could take care of themselves just fine.
She looked back up towards Eli as, momentarily, silence stretched between them. She wasn't particularly sure what to say. The obvious question still awake in her mind was...well, concerning his decision to go from Ellie to Eli. But that was neither here nor there, none of Izzie's business.
[[Posting for this RP is going really fast :v]]
"Aw! I missed you too!" Turtle, smiled, hugging Roy. "But, don't say, er, write things like that. I'm emotional!" Turtle 'tutted', and turned back to her drink.
((This is my last post for the night. Hopefully I don't get too far left being :P But goodnight everyone!))
"Hey!" Turtle called at Vinny. "I heard that!" She frowned at him, but she couldn't lie. The Ouija board was kind of bull. Oh well, She thought to herself, going back to being happy.
He took the bag off his back, and rummaged through it, producing a very wrinkled five. “Uhm, I’ll be right back.” He said, moving to get up.
"What’s up homies? I see that you guys decided not to partake in the complete and utter BS that would be transgressing over at the other table." Eli looked up to see Vinnie, and sat back down, not wanting to be rude. However, he still didn’t say anything to the other boy. It was just so... different, and yet, oddly endearing the way that he talked as if he was just trying to be cool.
When Alice came towards the table, he couldn’t help but scowl. He had felt really comfortable with just Izzie. Not out of place at all, despite their earlier transgression. "The Ouija board is bull but still it's fun. Maybe you guys are too old to know what fun is nowadays. You guys are fuddy duddies, come on loosen up. It's summer, carpe diem! What happened to those kids who aren't afraid to do anything?"
Eli stood up and smiled at her, “Well for one, I’m going to eat.” He said, shrugging as if it were an excuse. “And two, I don’t know what kid you knew, but I was terrified of that game when I was little” He grinned to show that he was joking (Though he wasn’t really) and walked over the counter.
"Don't call me 'homie', Brancade Neve," she retorted. Izzie knew Vinny had learnt the meaning of the nickname--which frankly impressed her. For one thing, finding the written form of the word was, for anyone unfamiliar with Brazilian Portuguese pronunciation, right near insurmountable. She could only imagine how much time Vinny'd spent looking for brancah jee nevee, but somehow he'd figured out it was written rather differently than it was pronounced--had to have, since he now knew what it meant. "And I don't make a habit of playing board games. Figure I'd rather sit back here and watch the kids have their fun."
That seemed to bring Alice's attention forth. "The Ouija board is bull, but it's still fun," she said, casting a look to the three of them. "Maybe you guys are too old to know what fun is nowadays. You guys are fuddy duddies--" The fuck is a fuddy duddy? Izzie mused--"come on, loosen up! It's summer, carpe diem! What happened to those kids who aren't afraid to do anything?"
"Maybe so, but this fuhddy duhddy--" her accent and unfamiliarity with the words marred them--"would rather sit and watch. I'm too old to be calling upon the spirits of the dead."
His real family was together again, minus one, and that was fine by him. He was happy again.
He knew that the others were probably thinking about the life they had had here. He was sad when it had to end... why did it have to end...
