Introduction

Image



ImageImage
Everyone seems to have something in their past that they want to forget. Sometimes, moving away gives you enough distance for the problem. Sometimes not.

An old group of friends tried running away from their problems. They ended up scattered across the country, and as a result fell out of touch with their old friends. They thought they'd done it. They let themselves believe that they'd finally escaped all their secrets, everything they weren't proud of. But one day, they get a phone call. The death of an old classmate, a friend, brings them back to their hometown. They originally think that it's going to be a short trip, just for the funeral- but when they finally reconnect, they realise that things aren't quite so simple. That first night, they realise that this isn't the old times any more. There's arguments that tear apart friendships for once and for all, relationships that reconnect and rekindle, and sparks flying for the first time.

They're forced to take a look at themselves, to see how they've changed, how the people they used to love have changed. And when a call comes that the death was under suspicious circumstances, they're forced to face themselves, their friends, and all their secrets. The murdered man was an honours student on full ride scholarship to Harvard, one of the best people they knew, but rumours start to fly that he wasn't quite so shiny beneath the surface. As much as they try not to, as they try to see everyone in the same light, their views start to shift subconsciously. Are the people they called their friends really who they used to be? And will things ever be the same again?

some quick rules! first things first, a reminder that god-modding is forbidden. god-modding typically means controlling a character without their player's permission. so when in doubt, ask. romance and violence are pretty much a given for a drama-driven rp like this, but keep it within site rules. most importantly, if things get steamy, either fade to black or bring it off site. there will be adult themes within the rp. if you're not comfortable with any of the content, please PM me and we can work around it or i can ask other players to alter as necessary. please keep the drama to the ic. any issues arising among members of the rp should be dealt with over pm. reservations go in the ooc as they're easier to keep track of. real face claims only, please. characters should be in their early twenties and should all be around the same age. you have 48 hours to submit a WIP. that WIP can be a blank sheet, i just want something in to know you're still on board. you will then have 5 days after submitting your WIP to finish your character. i will grant extensions as long as you pm me. any further questions or issues, please pm me! i don't bite, promise. when reserving, i'd like your character's face claim, a 250x250 image of said face claim, what your character was running from, and their hex colour.

Jackson stood outside the bathroom waiting for a response. The noise of the party made it almost impossible to hear if anything was coming from inside what he assumed to be the bathroom. He waited for a beat before lifting his fist to knock again but was stopped mid-air. The door was opened and a small blonde whom he recognized as Sutton came into view.

”Oh thank god!” he wasn’t given a chance to get a word in edgewise but was instead pulled inside the now confirmed to be bathroom, and the door shut behind him. Sutton was in a panic, it was apparent from just a few seconds of watching her and the single text she'd sent him earlier. It was like high school all over again. She began to pace back and forth, frantically detailing the events that had led to her current state, her body visibly shaking from the nerves. It was becoming more and more apparent that Jackson's hopes and expectations of people changing their ways with age had been too high. He'd suspected it the moment he walked in, but standing there, listening to the way these so-called grown adults had treated her really drove the point home.

The scene felt all too familiar. Suddenly, Jackson was back in their former high school hiding inside one of the empty classrooms as he tried his best to search for the right words that could possibly help soothe Sutton's panic. The boy never thought of himself as being any help. He'd always wondered why she kept coming back to him when he'd felt just as weak as she apparently did. But perhaps that's what kept them close. they shared a common enemy, a similar pain. The only difference now is that unlike before, he could actually protect her.

"Hey...hey hey. Hold on-" his voice remained low and calm, just as it had in the past. Only this time he didn't have the need to pretend that he wasn't just as scared as she was. For once, he truly felt like he could be useful. "Soo, listen-" he moved in front of her, gently cupping her small face in his hands and remained silent until her eyes finally met his. This would mark the first time he saw her in person since she left Oakhedge. He'd always respected her wishes to stay hidden, thankful that she at least wanted to keep in contact. The voice calls and video chats had been enough for him, as long as he knew she was doing alright. Perhaps coming back here had been a bad idea for the both of them, but getting to finally see her in person again was one of the very few good things to come out of this whole mess.

He watched her for a moment, only now realizing she seemed a lot smaller than he remembered. He could feel her body trembling under his touch and had almost forgotten how much it troubled him to see her like this. At this point, he would willingly do whatever it took to help her calm down, even if that spent spending the rest of the party locked up in this bathroom. "That's not going to happen, alright?" he let his hands drop from her face to gently take hold of her hands. If he said he wasn't feeling a rush of nerves himself, he'd be lying, but his friend needed him and perhaps the old Jackson would have hidden but the Jackson now was ready to knock down any else that dared to mess with her. "Those assholes may not have changed, but you have. You're a lot stronger than you give yourself credit for." And definitely a lot stronger than he ever had been.

"Yeah?" the tall man inquired at Rin's question, "Sounds like you could become my ally while staying around. There is something I wanted to ask from you, though..." Yet, both of them were interrupted by two figures from the past.

His face remained the same, and although Zeke had been craving some alcohol recently, he had a big issue - a dilemma - to drink or not, but the moment he suddenly saw Harry and Shailene in front of him, all the emotions he once had in the past flushed over him, and he just felt the need to drown all over again. If he was going to cause some problems later that evening and night, he would gladly take that role of an asshole upon himself. It wasn't far to reach, anyhow. Seeing Harry made him think of Toby all over again, and it made Zeke feel sick... had he really fallen in love with Toby back at college only because that one reminded him of Harry so much? Zeke didn't know, but all he knew was that he was alive and he was unable to save Toby from drowning.

A sudden skin ship from Shailene, but it had escaped as fast as it had appeared; Zeke was just nodding to the two, eyeing Harry with slight curiosity. "Yo," was the only greeting that came from him, from Zeke who was leaning against the bookshelf with a cool, smug aura coming from the Moore heir. But after the words from Rin about Matthew, Zeke drew his dark eyes at Shailene, a rush of sudden emotion of wanting to escape this place flowing over him. He could've easily just do that, but Jax was here and he... wasn't going to leave without at least seeing Nas face to face once.

"I've already got my own," Zeke finally spoke and reached into his fashionable coat' inner pocket and pulled out silver flask, and offering a smug grin, which was more on the side of being playful rather than cocky, "Blue Label at your service," he added, offering a sexy raise of his left eyebrow. Opening the flash, he took a big swing of it, letting tis expensive taste set on his tongue, then burning up all his insides for a moment. It was a bad thing for him to drink, having been sober with difficulty for couple of months then. "Ah, fuck it... Jax can drive later, or I'll just take a cab," he thought to himself, "besides I doubt anyone else but him knows about my demons."

"Hey...hey hey. Hold on-" Hearing the sound of his voice immediately brought her back to her teenage years. This was all too familiar. After a while Sutton happened to lose count of how many times she called on Jax because she needed help, but every time he was always there. "Soo, listen-" Sutton was broken from her pacing when Jax stood in front of her and held her face within his hands. Her eyes met his and it wasn't until that moment she realized she was crying.

"That's not going to happen, alright?" Sutton nodded her head at his words, just as he removed his hands from her face and took her hands. She held onto his hands if it were her only way to hold onto reality. Sutton clearly had no way how he was able to do it, but every time she heard Jax's soothing voice trying to comfort her, he was doing just that little by little. Sutton just wished she would've been able to prove herself to everyone here. She was a lot stronger now than she ever was and yet she allowed some idiots to get to her. "Those assholes may not have changed, but you have. You're a lot stronger than you give yourself credit for."

The petite blonde gave a warm smile, "Thanks Jax," she stated. As each second passed, she slowly felt her body beginning to re-stabilize itself. All the shaking and trembles seemed to dissipate after a couple minutes and she was finally able to think clearly. She wrapped her arms around Jax in a big hug, finally able to remember this was the first time she saw him face to face since she left all those years ago. "Sorry, not much of a reunion here was it?" she stated with a slight chuckle and retreated her arms to herself. "I think we should get back out there before people start trying to get into the bathroom."

The last thing she needed were rumors going around about her one on one times with Jax in the bathroom. He was like a brother to her but that wouldn't seem to matter to those who would spread those rumors. Sutton knew first hand what rumors could do to a person and she definitely never wanted to travel down that path again.

With a deep breath, she reached for the door knob of the bathroom and opened it up. At that moment all the sounds from the party brought her back to reality. Sutton knew she would have to embark on other moments such as the one she had downstairs earlier, but she told herself she wasn't going to let her panic the way she had. Though she also knew that was easier said than done. She just hoped she would be able to control herself from a sudden manic outbreak. The last time she had one of those, it didn't exactly end very well.

Her boyfriend at the time ended up in the hospital because she thought it would be a great idea to throw knives and even a television at the fool. Of course the television wasn't enormous or anything because he was light enough for Sutton to pick up, but it definitely did some damage. But all this happened just because she found out he had been cheating on her throughout the entire relationship. If something like that could cause her to almost kill someone, then she had no idea what else could trigger her into another act such as that.

Overeager, her brain accused her, even as her smile widened at Rin's reply, You're still too fucking overeager. It didn't matter. It didn't matter anymore because although those jitters still existed, Shailene was not ten years old again and Rin Davenport was not some untouchable scion placed in their midst to remind them all of their inferiority. And Shay would continue to tell herself that for as long as she remained in this small town with its small people and the memories of a small, stupid girl she once remembered seeing in the mirror.

It seemed an even greater test then when Rin brought up Matthew, as she was wont to do. As she had the right to do, especially considering he had literally just died. Still, it reminded her of high school and people questioning her about his whereabouts because she'd always been his favorite accessory, hanging from his pocket and too rough hands like the broken ragdoll Shailene had been sure Rin - and everyone else - had managed to see her as. They had just been polite enough to never say it to her face. Her smile dimmed, though not for the reason Rin might think. "I wasn't," she heard her own voice state, distant and emotionless. Too honest, her mind screamed. Shailene blinked, shaking away at an unseen force. "I-I-I-I-I mean...I didn't - I'm numb, I think," she better supplied and hurriedly added to Harry at his escape for drinks, "Wine, please. Red, if any." Turning back to Rin and to Zeke, the latter of which pulled out a flask Shailene tried to not actively salivate over, she continued to explain, "I didn't know how to feel wh-when I got the call and I don't...I don't think I know how to now." Too much. Shailene cursed her brain and mouth once more, at their reluctance to be silent when even gently pressed. She shrugged for good measure then, trying not to let the rest spill - the vitriol, the rage, the...tears? Did she want to cry? "I guess I just thought I'd get the chance - " To hit back, to rant and rage, to scream, to curse " - I never got to say goodbye."

She hoped she had sounded sad enough, like the ex-girlfriend and once upon a time future possible wife of a dead classmate the preacher had stated was gone too soon. She hoped she added the right amount of tremor and though the stutter was actually genuine in an effort to conceal the most honest thing she'd said in the beginning, she hoped that her eyes reflected regret, grief. It was easier, however, when she brought a small smile back to her lips. Genuine. "Still, though, this is a party and I know it's been a somber few days, but this just won't do, don't you two think?"

"No thank you, Harry," she said in response to him asking if they wanted any drinks, holding up her mostly full glass as an answer. Her eyebrow arched as Zeke pulled a flask from his pocket, declaring it to be blue label. A sharp but playful retort was on her tongue, but she held it back; a good decision as she saw Shay's reaction to the question. It seemed genuine enough, but Rin felt like there was something else there. Something she didn't dwell too hard on. It wasn't her place to pry. She felt like Shailene would afford her the same courtesy.

"I completely agree. However, despite my best efforts and the sheer amount of top quality alcohol on offer, people just don't seem to be in to it," she remarked, glancing around. God, her parties used to be legendary, and she'd be damned if this one went down as a failure. Had even more rumours about her family, hell, Rin herself gotten out? Had any of them even been true? She shrugged it away as Harry reappeared with a glass of red wine for Shay and a glass of what looked like Coke, presumably with something else. She held up her glass to them.

"Here's to fresh starts. Leaving the past behind and all that jazz," she declared. "Now, what do they say? The best leader leads by example? Well, then, gentlemen and lady, I think that's exactly what we need to do." She drained her glass and started for the nearest dance floor, hoping they would follow. She could feel the eyes following her, and that gave her a steely determination. She was Trinity Davenport, and she would give them something to talk about if it killed her. But this party would not be deemed a failure. Whatever else happened, it would not be a failure.
