Personality: Nellie is a strong hearted girl. She knows what she wants and will go to lengths to receive it. She almost always has something to say any situation. She is mentally stronger then she is physically but, will never allow anyone to push her around. Nellie generally doesn't get along with kids her own age and kids in high school. She didn't have the greatest school experience. She prefers to only socialize with her cast mates. Although she does talk a lot Nel loves time alone, she enjoys meditating in odd stretched out positions and humming to herself while sketching in her free time. Nellie is usually in a bad mood, meaning she will snap back quickly. When she's not in a bad mood you better enjoy it. She dreams of continuing on with the circus and becoming world known for her special talent along side her brother.
Image

History: Nellie was born into poverty. Named Cornelius, after her grandmother, the name never quite fit her so she simply goes by Nellie. She was born a few years after her brother and followed close behind in his love for contortion. Which soon became her obsession, twisting herself till it hurt. When Nellie was little she attended a public elementary school. She loved showing of to the other kids her ability, and never quite understood why they couldn't bend as she did. During 4th grade Nellie's parents lost there home. They moved from hotel to hotel, trying to keep costs down as much as possible. Some nights the siblings went to sleep hungry, sometimes cold. Sometimes they slept in the car, her fathers most precision item. Nellie would lay over the back seat with her brother.

One weekend, not long after 1st grade had began Nellie's older brother showed her to the circus. Their parents had given them each small amounts of money, as birthday gift and (brother) being older brought Nellie to spend her money at the circus. Sitting down to watch the show her eyes got big, she saw the stage in front of them, and it was enticing. Many times after big day at the circus Nellie and her brother would go back, sneaking in, standing by the door. By middle school the two became regulars, seeing the circus as often as possible.
Image
When Nellie finished her freshman year of high school she dropped out. She wasn't able to sustain her grades she didn't want to go to college. She simply wished to be a performer. To be in the circus acts for every performance. And so her wish came true when she was welcomed by the new ring master, who was only a year older then her into the circus along side her brother. And it was like a dream.

Other: Nel sometimes sneaks away from her wonderful circus world to spray paint graffiti around the city. So far no one knows her secret, though they wonder who had added this tiny bit of color to their grey world.

So begins...

Will leaned back and ran his fingers through his hair, catching his beanie as it slipped from his head. Buddha For Mary by Thirty Seconds To Mars played in his headphones as he stared at the screen in front of him. He pulled his beanie back on and sighed, having another read through his assignment. It was the second of the five that decided his final grade for the semester, coupled with a performance assessment. The first had been easy, simply filling out a few forms and accounts that could be found when dealing with a theatrical performance. This was much harder, combining the two aspects of the degree. "Describe the aspects necessary to draw the audience into a performance and write a simple monologue to be performed as part of your final exam that fulfills all of these aspects." He'd only needed to describe the things he'd grown up around and that he had once been surrounded by for the first part. Writing the monologue, however, was proving harder than he'd expected. Usually he improvised a lot of his performance as a ringmaster, but he couldn't improvise the final exam- not when he had to hand in the monologue first to be graded.

He hit pause on his iPod and shut down the lid of his laptop, sighing as he pulled out his headphones. He was starting to get restless. He'd promised everyone that tonight was the night- and besides, he was starting to second-guess the line, Not a sane man walks this world- a madness reigns at least one part of our minds. Houses abandoned when the city started to develop provided their home. They were all still structurally sound, but nobody wanted to live in them any more- not when everything they wanted could be found on their doorstep in the city.

He picked up his phone and sent around a quick text. Meet me outside mine in five. Tonight's the night. -The Ringmaster. He went upstairs to his bedroom and stared at the familiar outfit, hanging on the front of the closet. One side of his mouth quirked up at the thought of wearing it again.

Five minutes later, he was dressed in the familiar outfit. It felt like he hadn't worn in in years, when in reality it had only been a few months. It still fitted as well as ever, even if the trousers were a little looser. He looked in the mirror and nodded, feeling a little steel building inside of him. He closed his eyes. When he opened them, he felt a little bit of the Ringmaster kick in and smiled.

Making sure his laptop was concealed under two pairs of jeans and a shirt, he headed downstairs to meet the rest of his performers.

Yes, she had been out, yeah it was late. It was technically her parent's fault. If she'd had a phone she could have notified them she would be a little late coming home. That's only because before she had finished her 20 minute walk back to Motel 6, Nellie had been doing a little street art on a nearby bridge. It was made of concrete, the bridge anyway. So it was easy to spray paint on. The concrete really just held the paint well, kept it from dripping. Though writing upside down was kind of hard, plus having to do it fast so the traffic below her wouldn't notify any of those...cops. She had manage to print the words "Who ever passes shall never enter again" on the bridge, above the one-way road that let towards the downtown. Using her best purple, pink and blue paint she finished her work with empty canisters. Then tossing the cans into a dump she ran a good 10 minutes away towards 'home'. Then finished with a 10 minute casual stroll the rest of the way. Nellie walked up to the Motel 6, casually with her back pack (made of old denim clothes) threw the lobby and straight to room 191.

"Pocky!" Nellie shouted flinging the door to the hotel room open. She swung her back pack off her shoulder and it fell to the ground. She closed the fake wooden, or possibly plastic door behind her. Walking forward she simply turned her head. Two full sized beds with colorful dis tasteful quilts laid across them, a night stand separating the two beds, and a medium sized telly stood on a dresser in front of one of the beds. It wasn't home, exactly, but it for sure wasn't a holiday get away. She trudged a few steps into the room and looked around at her family. "Look Pocky!" She said again lifting the box in the air. "It's these sticks dipped in chocolate, I got a free box today from Ives store." Nellie walked around the bed and sat down by Aaron, her older brother. "Ives said 'Don't you tell anyone now, that stuff only comes twice a year.'" Nellie opened the box, a intimationous smell of chocolate hovered in the air. "I wonder where they make these things..." She pulled a stick out at ate it bit by bit. Glancing at the clock it was getting late. Not bothering to ask if dinner would be served tonight she took another stick of pocky and then went to the floor in front of the 2 beds and began to stretch. Starting simply with the splits she glided down into it, then rotated from a side to a front, and back again. "Hey Aaron want to stretch me out? I know mom won't" Nellie said grinning at her mother, then looking back at Aaron. A small ding went off as Nellie went back to stretching. "Who's that?" She asked turning to her brother who possessed the phone.

Nellie still isn't home, but punctuality has never been Aaron's younger sister's strong suit, unfortunately. Thus, he's been up with his parents, talking to them about the job he's recently gotten at a nearby restaurant- one that allows him to provide for himself. It's also the reason that he has a phone, while Nellie is often wandering the streets by herself without any actual way to keep in contact with the others. He's been thinking of trying to help her get a day job of her own, now that the circus is more of a night time affair than the paying job it had somehow been in the last town. Not that his parents know about the new situation of the circus, of course- they already worry enough about their only children not having 'normal jobs.' This worry is why he describes to him his day job, trying to reassure them that things are going on well enough. They always seem to blame themselves for everything, something that has been going on ever since they first lost the house around eight years ago. As far as Aaron knows, though, they his parents are the only ones blaming themselves- he has always treasured them. Poor or not, their family is close knit.

Still, he had run out of conversation topics long before Nellie finally returned. After all, Aaron is not the most loquacious of people; his parents are just trying to keep the conversation focused on him, turning it back around every time he tries to point the conversation towards him. Nellie, on the other hand, is more of a talker, words already bursting out of her mouth when she enters the motel room. The rest of the Moores turn to look at her, and Aaron's eyebrow rises at her first words. He knows what pocky is, of course, and is less amused by the foreign treat than Nellie appears to be. He half-wondered if she was only joking in saying she didn't know where they were made, but didn't say as much, instead just smiling with the left side of his mouth at Nellie's enchantment with the sweet. He and his sister have always gotten on a lot better than stereotypical siblings, and it probably helps that Aaron doesn't constantly correct her, though he occasionally wants to.

"Welcome back," he says to her, the only two words he's been able to get in since she arrived, as the girl had taken up much of the free air with her own voice. As usual, she is not one to remain still for long, and Nellie is soon stretching. Aaron is about to join her when the tone from his phone, which is on the bedside table, attracts his attention. He reaches over and grabs it, finding that it is a text from Will, telling them to meet at his place. Rather than telling her what the text says, Aaron tosses the phone at Nellie and turns towards his parents, smiling apologetically.

"Sorry mom, dad. Nellie and I have plans for the night. It's been nice seeing you, though," he says, leaning over and kissing his mother on the cheek before standing up. He is wearing circus clothing beneath a coat and dark pants- no need to attract attention until planned, after all. Aaron walks over to the door and glances at Nellie, expecting her to follow him.

Tallulah, Tally not Lulu, is walking down the street when she gets the text message from William, ringleader and friend. Her thoughts had turned, as they frequently do, to the prospect of becoming a masked vigilante. She's already taking part in an illegal circus to take a stand against the local government, why not go the extra distance and just dawn a cape already? Dick Grayson was an acrobat first, her thought process had went, as she is rather fond of all things Grayson, and has been ever since she drew parallels between her life and the fictional orphan-turned-sidekick-turned-hero. The thoughts almost make her wish that someone would run by with a stolen purse so that she could foil the crime and begin her ascent, or descent, into the vigilante life. Unfortunately, no one dashes by with a purse, there are no shrill cries for help, and the shadiest thing around here is the flickering sign of the bowling alley that she is just leaving- she has to pay for comic books, cheezits, and a poor excuse for a studio apartment somehow, after all. Well, at least the rent is cheap, partially thanks to the apartment being in the city's projects. That would also explain the bowler-style polo shirt she wears over her black jeans, and the name tag stuck to said shirt.

Anyway: William's text. When she sees it, Tally grins, ready for showtime, as she always is. Of course, she needs to stop by her apartment and pick up her battle armor, which is really just a full-body leotard that would protect her from absolutely no blades. As far as makeup goes, she doesn't really know how to apply it, and doesn't keep any on her, ever- usually Nono, the trusty costume designer, handles that detail. Tally just focuses on the fun part- the heights, thrill, and action. She's been in the circus for a long time now, a born and bred performer, but she will never become numb to the bliss of being up there- on the tightrope or swinging in a trapeze act. It's her passion, after all.

There in a flash, she thinks a few moments later, exiting her apartment which, thankfully, had been on the way. This saying is her favorite, in a flash in general, because it makes her think of the Flash. The leotard, by the way, is in a bag slung over her shoulder.After waving at the little girl, Suzie Jones, who lives with her mother and three siblings next door, Tally makes her way out once more, heading to William's apartment. She doesn't have her Ipod with her, but seems to walk to the beat of a song she can't remember the words to anyway, looking very much like a very relaxed high school or college aged girl. Of course, the occasional air guitar does cause people to glance her way, but most lose interest and return back to their own matters.

When Tally reaches the apartment building, she finds Nono and Rae, the sisters, already there and, for whatever reason, just waiting outside. "Hey! Why are you guys waiting outside? If he's not here yet, just go up to his apartment," she suggests casually. She'd likely burst into the apartment without announcing, even, not having the best of social tact, perhaps due to lack of caring. To follow up her words, she walks towards the door to the apartment building and opens it, only to find that he is walking towards the door.

She opens the door and steps aside, making a dramatic motion for him to walk through. "My lord," she says in a silly voice, dropping an octave and trying to sound as serious as possible, though a smile twitches at her mouth.

As Nellie came out of her splits she looked began to raise her leg over her head, having to stop mid way to catch the phone Aaron had thrown to her. "Sorry mom, dad. Nellie and I have plans for the night. It's been nice seeing you, though," Nellie searched her parents face for a reaction. "What we don't have plans? What?" She fiddle with the phone and looked at Aaron then at the phone. "Oh, yeah those plans" Nellie felt her stomach sink, she wasn't really in a performance mood, maybe it was the sugary pocky that had had brought her energy level down. "We will walk you out" Nellie suggested running to the closet and grabbing her bright red jacket. She pulled it on and then scrambled for her back pack.

Nellie and her parents followed Aaron out the door and to the parking lot. The air had gotten cooler, it felt nice. "Bye Mom, bye Dad!" Nellie hugged both of her parents and then stepped back watching them get in the car. The car rumbled and groaned but started. Nellie felt bad they'd had to cut the visit short, but the circus was calling. As the two sibling's parent's car left the property Nellie turned to her brother, who only stood a few inched taller then her. "So, we have a show to put on." She smiled looking around in thought. Nellie knew Aaron wouldn't have much to say, unless he knew what was going on. "So to Will's we go!?"

Nellie had known Will since around second grade. She had met him at the circus, his parents owned it after all. Will was a great friend, ever since second grade. He was only a year older then her after all. Nellie was glad that Will was the Ring master. He he was a great leader and role model to every one at in the cast. But what did he need so late in the day? Gee...

The two contortionists began their walk to down the street. Nellie made a point to spit at the bottom of every lamp pole they passed, just because. She then began to tell Aaron about her day and did as much as possible to avoid talking about work. Or more specifically a job for herself... Will's place was nearing though and Nellie could make out Noelle, Raelee and Tally going into the building.

(I really apologize for the delay guys- I've been pretty busy in real life and have had to get used to a lot of changes.)

Will grinned as Tally opened the door and bowed. "My lord." His eyebrow quirked up as he returned the bow, sweeping his top hat from his head as he lowered his torso and returning it to his head as he straightened. Raelee and Noelle were also there, and he grinned at the two. He could make out the silhouette of Gianna on horseback and numerous other figure approaching.

"Tonight's the night, my friends," He called, loud enough so that those further away could hear him. "Tonight is the night that we remind them that the circus never truly leaves- it will always return. Tonight is the night we put on another performance for the whole city." He grinned at them. "If you're in, I've got our plans set out." He led them back up to the apartment.

His apartment was oddly tidy- when he'd hit his mental block for his monologue, he'd tidied it in the hope of beating the block. A picture of him and his parents took pride of place on the window sill, and he took a moment to stare at it, a fire starting to ignite inside him.

"Tally and Rae, I want you two together. I managed to set up a few things for you two when I was visiting the college to see a sample performance for my course. You'll see what I mean when you get there. Go down the alley beside the college and when you come to the end, swing a left. It should hit you in the face." He grinned at them.

"Gianna, I need you to hold nothing back. I need a fricking organised stampede through the middle of the city."

"Daniel, take the main square. I trust you to be able to smuggle your lion in that far."

"Aaron and Nellie, take the market square. There was an event on earlier and there should be a good few people around."

"Olivia, take the main street. Freak a few people out. You know what to do."

"Noelle..." He ran his hand down his face as he thought of what to do with her. She was treated as the baby of the group, despite barely being a year younger than him. He sighed.

"You're with me. You won't necessarily be performing- but I'm not letting you wander alone around the city. Not when what we're doing is so dangerous."

He looked at them all in the face, one by one. "This could be dangerous. We're fighting forces that never thought they'd be fought. Be safe. Don't risk anything unnecessarily."

His grin returned and he went to the closet, pulling out a few sets of familiar clothing. "We'll need these."

Nellie was glad they need wait no longer as Will opened the door just as they where arriving. "Tonight's the night, my friends," He said reiterating his text. "Tonight is the night that we remind them that the circus never truly leaves- it will always return. Tonight is the night we put on another performance for the whole city." And what an exciting night it would be, Nellie half grinned staring at the ground. And he had a plan. The group of circus performers all entered Will's place.

A familiar scent filled the air, his house was warm and welcoming, it was a friends house whom she thought as her own sometimes. Before she had a chance to fall back into a recliner Will owned, he had already began telling people were they would be deployed to. Nellie twisted her hair up into a bun while waiting for him to say where she would be stationed. As he did she flicked her eyes looking at him. "Aaron and Nellie, take the market square. There was an event on earlier and there should be a good few people around." Hm, though it would have been great to go alone, (she loved having full attention on herself) Nellie was put with her brother. She was excited though, getting to rally up a crowd out of rebellion, what a thrill...

"Noelle..." He spoke finishing up his speech. "You're with me. I'm not letting you wander alone around the city. Not when what we're doing is so dangerous." Nellie rolled her eyes to herself watching them, as Noelle gave Will a sown bow. That girl is such a child, we are the same age yet it's like she's 10. She didn't even preform why did she come... Nellie stood up from the recliner and crossed her arms turning her attention to Aaron. "Okay Aar wanna head out?" She smiled. Will brought out their costumes. "Thanks Will..." She said searching for her own and her brothers. Their's weren't to difficult to find. The skinniest outfits for sure, and hers was a bit small, as most contortionist where slim and small, it was a given.

When she hears Nono giggling at her little show of unnecessary grandeur, Tally flashes her a goofy smile. It is likely for the best that she is wearing her costume beneath a long coat, because she would otherwise look doubly foolish. Not that this group isn't attention-grabbing as it is, with Gianna's horses and William's tall top hat. She wishes she were wearing such a hat, so that she can tip it in a falsely dignified manner. To make up for her lack of a hat, she simply mimes the motion, winking playfully at the Hue sisters, who remain in front of the door. Of course, William actually does have a hat, and therefore outdoes her with a dramatic bow, involving, she watches enviously, his big top hat. She'll have to get Noelle to make her such a fine hat- it really is a very fine hat. She wants a hat like that, very much. How should I bribe her to get myself a hat like that? she wonders.

Of course, this unfortunately results in her holding the door open for everyone who files in the building and up to William's apartment, because her moment of absent-mindedness leads her not able to escape the task quickly enough. Instead, she makes silly faces at each person who walks through, varying from goofy smiles to crossed eyes. "Nellie, Aaron, Gianna, Nono, Rae, Daniel," she says with each person who walks by, nodding with her stupid expressions, as though they are completely normal and she is merely greeting them through casual acknowledgement. Once everyone has finally passed her, Tallulah is relieved of her arm-tiring duties, and gratefully follows after them.

William's apartment is disturbingly tidy, at least to a girl whose own home is a bit of black hole. She loves her little studio apartment dearly, of course, but doesn't treat the space particularly well- organization has never really been Tally's strong suit, unfortunately. A lot of things aren't her strong suit: caution, flirting, and keeping her temper also being among them. "Why is it always so clean in here?" she asks aloud, not really expecting an answer but feeling compelled to ask nonetheless.

Reasonably, her question is ignored, and William begins passing out various roles, telling everyone where to go. The fact that what awaits she and Rae is a surprise makes her grin, loving any sort of surprise or mystery. Besides, knowing Will, it's got to be at least half-awesome. When Rae turns towards Tally and asks if she's ready for this, the grin widens a bit even further.

"I was born ready, Rae. Come on- dangerous rebellion in style? It has my name written all over it. Well, give me time. And a crayon," she smiles. "But, hey, Nono? Can you make me a top hat? That would be brilliant," she says hopefully, clasping her hands together to further demonstrate the plea.

Image

Even as they are walking towards Will's apartment, Aaron begins to feel a bit ill at ease. After all, this is a rather dangerous endeavor he and his little sister are taking on. Being part of the circus had been his dream since childhood, but it never really included the whole 'nighttime rebellion' part of what the Falion circus has become. That being said, even if Aaron really truly wanted to back out, he wouldn't be completely able to. After all, he'd have to physically drag Nellie away from all of this, and certainly doesn't plan on his baby sister being part of it on her own. So, naturally, he is invested in this very much. Even though he does have his concerns, perhaps he would be part of this anyway. Though normally very cautious, the circus seems to be an environment in which he cuts loose a bit. Unfortunately, it does little to make him more talkative, and he remains very quiet fort he most part.

He and Nellie are put together for a show in the Market Square. Aaron knows that Nellie will likely be a bit disappointed to not be performing on her own, because she's always had something of a thing for being the center of attention. It's just her personality. Well, they've always performed together anyway- the sibling contortionists. When William hands Aaron is costume, the latter nods in thanks, before finding the restroom to change into the costume. He's not really all that fond of the costume, to be completely honest, but doesn't want to bother Noelle about it. Besides, she's always so hung up on William, he's nearly certain she'd forget about making him a new costume in favor of making something for Will.

He comes back out and nods at Nellie. "I'm ready to go, Nell," he responds, smiling softly. In all honesty, he's very anxious about all of this, but hardly wants to be the one who bursts everyone's bubble by voicing his concerns.

Upon reaching the town square Nellie kept her hood over her head. The streets had gotten darker and she wanted to keep a low profile, that is until she stepped up on the fountain edge and looked over the square. Will was correct, there was fair amount of people getting out from movies, parties and dinner dates. Nellie pursued her lips. Now how was she going to do this, trying to use her voice to cover the square was not the problem. She wanted to attract attention, but not from the police exactly... With a deep breath Nellie glanced at her brother then back out over the crowd of people. Hoping to catch their attention she imitated Will

"Ladies and gentlemen!" Nellie made her voice slightly deeper in hopes it would show her confidence. "Roll up, roll up, roll up! The circus was gone but not for that long! We are back and as you all" She let out a quick breath mid sentence "should know the circus! Never! leaves!" She grinned, finishing her intro and immediately taking of her hoodie and sweats. Still standing on the fountain she went into a needlebending as far as possible, with the adrenaline pumping Nellie was able to touch her head to the back of her calf. Hoping Aaron would do something as well, as she had almost forgot he was with her. She came out of the position slowly and looked to him prepared for what ever he had planned. She didn't want to hesitate but had forgotten a bit of the routine they had been working on.

Nellie looked back at the crowd of people, they where listening, watching. Some people even smiled or clapped. Nellie only gave a slight grin at this point she was doing a show and needed to stay in character. Nellie hoped down from the fountain an proceeded happily with the routine along side her favorite person in the world, they where so perfectly graceful together.

When they first reach the square, Aaron deems it to have a good amount of people crowding the sidewalks. This is to be expected, of course, as the square is a prime spot for evening entertainment, and there have been special events in the city today. None quite as special as the illegal performance that is now coming into place all around the city, of course, but no one knows that quite yet. Well, not unless another duo has already started off with their act at this point, that is. Despite the chaotic throngs of people, chaotic only to an overcautious onlooker, Nellie manages to grab the attention of the others immediately. One thing that Aaron must say about his little sister is that she is quite good at taking what she wants- and that often has something to do with the eyes and ears of every individual within a mile range of the petite young woman. Small but mighty, indeed. Aaron is less short than she, of course, standing at an average height, but he has a rather wiry frame, thin and with little definition. This is practical, though- muscles can get in the way of flexibility, even for a natural contortionist such as himself.

While Nellie grabs the attention of those around her, Aaron stands quietly beside her, a common pattern of relative placement for the sibling duo. Though he gains more freedom when performing, Aaron is still a far cry from the complete confidence of people such as Tally and his sister. He follows suit in taking off his cover clothing to reveal his contortionist's garb beneath them, far more eye-catching than his jeans and hoodie combo had been. At first, he merely imitates Nellie's needle bending. After this, however, he walks around to the other side of the fountain, so that people on all sides can watch what appears to be an impromptu exhibition in the full range of motion that the human body has the potential to possess.

He begins by seeming to kneel on the ground, palms planted firmly against the stone of fountain. Soon, however, he has lifted up his body with the strength of his arms, and bends his lower body around so that his feet hang by his shoulders. In this position, he begins to walk around the rim of the fountain, expecting Nellie to do the same, until he turns and meets up with her once more, so that they can form a sort of X before continuing on to the next stunt. It seems to be going well as of yet, likely thanks to the fact that the police expect people to gather in the square, and think nothing of it if they pass a large crowd.

"Oh, don't be such a grownup, Rae. Clearly, Peter never visited your window," Tally responds to the other woman's sarcastic remark. She sticks out her tongue at the girl, something that likely does nothing to help prove a point against Rae. Then again, her retort hardly tried to make a claim that Tally was mature in any sense of the word- even the dark-haired girl herself realizes that she still has the recklessness characteristic more of a toddler than a legal adult. "I bet you're a fairy killer, eh?" she adds, continuing the Neverland theme, one which seems to fit the young woman, who can give the illusion of flight when she's on the trapeze, so well.

Soon, the pair are out the door and heading down the road, which takes them towards the local college, as it happens. Tally is itching with anticipation for the promised surprise, as can be seen in the grin which she doesn't bother to conceal. Of course, anyone walking past might simply see two college girls, one of whom appears to be in an exceptionally fine moon this evening. Tally, at least, is not obvious in her costume, which is worn beneath a pair of sweatpants and a gray hoodie that displays the logo of the high school that she hasn't attended for a few years now. Go Hornets! it reads in a mustard yellow lettering.

"A cannon? That'd be pretty cool, though. I've never been in a cannon before. I doubt it, though. Will's not desperate enough to turn amateurs into projectiles, I think," Tally answers Rae's comment, though of course she has no way of being certain herself. Most likely it will be some long tight rope that is wired across the city, she believes. Such a thing would have been a demon to hook up, but Will's always aimed rather high.

They do, in fact, reach such an ambitious contraption, which comes with a ladder to climb up it, and trapeze bars hanging at reasonable intervals, most likely for Tally's use. She grins ear to ear, adrenaline already pumping through her veins. Without waiting for Rae, she runs to the ladder and begins climbing up it, moving with the agility of a squirrel up a tree. Only once she has reached the top does she see William a few roofs down. Of course, she also sees, therefore, burly men advancing on William and Nono managing to escape down a ladder. She sees William being carried away like a sack of potatoes, his beautiful bowtie fluttering away like a warning.

Eyes particularly saucer-like, Tally looks back down at Rae. "Um. We may or may not have a problem. I think two evil shadows just attacked Will, and Noelle might be next? A few alleys down, so I'm just going to. . . " without further explanation or thought, she grabs a trapeze bar and swings back, soon making her way towards the danger with them, adrenaline making her stronger and training since childhood making her confident.

Noelle Hue
Maybe it was because Noelle wasn’t in the show, that she never gotten used to large crowds. Just standing there on the street, made her uneasy and nervous. That short, young woman, who most call Kiddo or little one, was scared. Her eyes were wide and in her hand, she clutched the bow tie. Her fear felt like it was swallowing her up. She ducked her head down, refusing to look anyone directly in the eye. She took off quickly, running through a row of people before she found herself in another alley way. Oh, was she lost? Is this what lost felt like? Did she hear the crowd cheering? Was Aaron and his sister around? Was that it? Her stomach felt tight and obnoxious. She hadn’t been eating a lot, which was partially her and her sister’s fault, more her sister’s because they never told anyone their, finance situation. She pressed her hand against her stomach and knelt down on her knees and held her stomach tightly.

She hadn't ran so much in a long time. Nono did feel like a child. Her eyes stung with unwanted tears and she thought back to her sister. She needed her sister. Hell, she needed someone. There she was, alone, close to crying, in an empty alley way. Though, she heard footsteps and her head lifted to stare at an older gentleman. He looked at her and gave her a crooked grin.

“You alright there, doll?” He asked, and an awful stench came from his breath.

“I’m fine.” Noelle answered, standing to her feet.

“Look like you’ve seen a ghost.”

“I’m fine, thank you.” Noelle whispered, pushing past him. He grabbed her arm though and held on firmly.

“You look sick, here, let me take you to the hospital.”

“I said.” Noelle said firmly, lifting her knee and slamming the heel of her foot into his and he hunched over. As soon as that occurred, the short girl lifted her knee, smashing it into his nose. “I’m. Fine.”

Raelee Hue
Raelee couldn’t believe what was in store for them. Tightrope, for sure, was for Tally. However, the beams were perfect for Raelee’s flips and balances. Though, Tally was up and ready for action, but the girl had paused. Raelee took that moment to look about at the rush of crowds on the streets. There was so many people and Raelee was beginning to feel that rush, that adrenaline that ran through her body whenever she felt like she was needed, wanted, under the light of the show. It was that feeling again, the one where she felt she truly belonged. She felt herself smile, for once, a true smile.

But that smile didn’t last long. It always seemed that any smile Rae offered, never lasted so long. “Nono?” She whispered, her eyes shooting to Tally as the girl had already leaped. Raelee felt a new sense inside her body; fear. And this fear was for both Will and her younger sister. Rae ran away from the contraption and headed out into the crowd.

People looked down at the girl, before their gazes returned to whatever caught their eye. “Nono!” Rae shouted, cupping her hands around her mouth. “Where are you?!”

Nellie watched her brother from the corner of her eye. He was doing well, probably better then she was at the moment. This wasn't exactly a normal performance, she had a lot going through her mind. Going a handstand Nellie brought one leg to touch the ground in front behind her head while the other leg pointed to the sky. After holding the position for a moment she did a somersault landing softly then popping up. Nellie grinned widely taking a small bow. The people on her side of the stone fountain clapped. A young couple standing in the front pulled out a few bucks. Nellie began to stop them "No no we don't--" She stopped herself looking at the 5 dollar bill. Nellie looked back her brother was on the opposite side of the fountain, he was a contorted position, unable to see she. "Thanks..." Nellie mumbled taking the 5 bucks and quickly slipping it into her sports bra. She went on with her show, walking on her hands all the way back to her brother. "Umm I'm not exactly sure what he wants us to do next." Nellie whispered biting her lip. Was Will expecting everyone to eventually get caught? She shook her head No that's not it.

He watched as the unconscious Ringmaster was carried away. It hurt, but Will had warned him not to interfere. The young Ringmaster had been very aware of the possibilities of something similar happening, and so he'd taken precautions to ensure that his circus was protected. The bearded man stepped out from the alleyway and looked around.Sure enough, he spotted the trapeze artist and headed for her.

He still had most of his muscles left from his days as the Fallion circus, and he was quite an impressive sight as he approached the trapeze artist. "You Tallulah?" He grumbled. "I'm Arthur. Used to be the strongman. Will sent me. He said that if anything happened to him, I was to deliver a few messages. Well, something happened to him. He says to regroup at his apartment, and that you're to lead them. He'll try and find a way to contact you, but until then, rely on your gut." He disappeared then.

He made his way around to as many of the performers as he could find. Telling the contortionists to trust each other. Telling the lion tamer to channel the bravery of his lion, and that Will was actually only joking and to actually not be afraid to unleash the lion. Telling the girl who wasn't a performer to stick with her sister. Telling Raelee to mind her sister and that Will would see her soon. Telling them all not to worry, that he knew they'd be fine without him if anything happened, and that he was glad to have known them.

I figured that I didn't leave you guys with much. You done well with what I gave you! Do what you will- I'll just ask that you time skip to an hour or so later so I can post for Will.
