Amber Archer

"I am unsure of how moving to Appaloosa Plains is going to help the predicament which I am in. I am still going to be incapable of creating friendships. No one likes Lolitas in these parts."

0 · 275 views · located in Appaloosa Plains

a character in “Appaloosa Plains: Restart of The New Start”, as played by Lacare

Description

Age: 15 (Birthday in December)
Gender: Female
Family members: Parents (NPCs), Sister (NPC), Brother: William Archer, Sister-in-Law: Chelsea Stard, Niece: Melody Clearway
Academy and living with her Brother, Sister-in-Law, and her niece
Wealth Status/Class: Middle
Bio: There isn't really much to say about Amber's life. It was rather normal when she was in Appaloosa Plains as a young child, with plans of becoming a polo star and cheerleader in high school like her brother and sister, but then her parents plucked her and her siblings to Florida. She slowly began to lose touch with the public eye and Florida's view on life, and so became withdrawn. It began with the simple, hardly-noticeable action of her preferring to ride side saddle. However, this slight change in behavior changed dramatically when her brother left for Appaloosa Plains once again. She drew even further into her Victorian-styled elegance based around the Japanese Lolitas. After a few years of this, her parents no longer could stand her suffering loneliness and decided she might fit in better in Appaloosa Plains because it is a far more accepting area than Florida. However, will she truly fit in when her own brother doesn't even approve of her? Will she be able to find the friends and acceptance that she has been looking for for years?

So begins...

It was late June as Alyssa opened her eyes to see the love of her life, Jax, still sleeping beside her. She gently smiled and kissed his cheek before plucking herself upwards into a sitting position to stretch and wake herself up the rest of the way. I’m living in a fairytale… love of my life beside me, ranch starting up on a crisp, summer morning, and his adorable toddler twins cooing in their nursery in our grand home, but something doesn’t feel right. She thought to herself as she slipped away from the bed and over to the balcony which looked out to their barn and fields where the horses would be put out shortly. For a moment she simply stood there still with her hands lying gently on the rail as she watched the sun rise, but soon found herself stirring to do something different and exciting. She glanced over her shoulder, as she turned to face their bedroom, to look back at her fiancé lovingly before tiptoeing through the room, making sure to grab her cell on the way, and down the stairs and through the house to travel down to her largest barn.

“Look at them all.” She whispered to herself as she opened the door and breathed in the smell of equine and the fresh bedding placed down the night before for them. “I love them all.” She mentioned with a gentle nod as she wrapped her arms around herself. It was a slightly chilly morning, one that certainly was perfect for riding, but a little colder than wanted for someone wearing only a short nightgown. She smiled softly as one of the horses neighed at her and another, nearer one, nickered. Walking over to the little mare which had just nickered, a smile broadened over her face. “You wanna go riding, don’t you?” She giggled before pausing slightly and tilting her head at the mare through the bars, “I do too.” She sighed and began walking away from the mare, but the mare nickered again and Lyss could hear her pawing at the ground. The smile crept up on her face again as she turned back around, suddenly grinning as a glint of happiness flickered in her eyes like fire, “Well, maybe a short run won’t do any harm…” Grabbing up the halter and lead on the mare’s door, she slid her finger across the name, Arienelle, before entering the stall and haltering the little mare and jumping up on her and lightly kicking her to make her trot out of the stall and out to just… run…

“Melody, c’mon! We need to go pick up Aunt Amber from the airport.” Will called from the door of their apartment. It was nothing special; one bedroom, one bathroom, one master suite, kitchen and dining area, and a sitting area with a small television. They had to get a second bed for Amber to sleep on while she was staying with them for at least that year. Their parents were hoping the new set up with him and his family would provide her with the same stability, a little less sisterly drama, and maybe also a few more friends. Will hadn't heard much about his littlest sister’s situation, but he did know it’d been rough on her.

“Coming Daddy!” Melody called back as she ran out in a cute little outfit, perfect for meeting her aunt in. She reached up to her father wanting to be picked up. With a light chuckle, Will scooped her up in his arms and planted a kiss on her shoulder. “We’ll be back with Amber soon.” He mentioned as he gave Chelsea a quick kiss and headed out with his daughter.

Only an hour later, they arrived at the airport and found Amber, with her long, chocolate-colored hair and bright blue eyes, standing very lady-like on her own in a corner of the waiting room. Will immediately crinkled his nose at her attire. No wonder she doesn’t have any friends… Has she not compared her clothes to everyone else’s recently? He wondered to himself as he watched Melody run over and give her a big hug, unable to note his dear sister’s evident shock at being grabbed by the child in such a hug. “My dear brother,” She smiled as she gingerly picks up her niece and held her against her hip, “how may you be on this lovely day? Your daughter seems to be a rather joyous type. I think you have raised her decently well. How is your fiancée, Chelsea? Is she well? I have unfortunately not seen her since I was very young.” Amber reminisced and questioned as Will forced himself to walk over to his sister, still wondering how she could possibly even be allowed to wear a dress of such odd nature. Shouldn’t a girl her age be wearing skinny jeans and a t-shirt? No wonder their parents sent her to him.

“I’m doing pretty well, Amber, and thank you. I think Melody is normally a happy girl, but there are times when she begs to differ.” He smirked gently over at Mellie as Amber set her back down on the ground, as lady-like as she had picked her up. Trying to push his thoughts of her odd behavior away, he continued, “Chels is great! She’s excited to see you, and I think she’d be happy to take you shopping sometime. She loves shopping and getting nice stuff.”

Amber’s eyes darkened ever so slightly as she metaphorically crawled a little deeper into her shell. I like what I wear, though… She inwardly reminded herself, knowing how impolite it would be to show that she had caught his rude comment. I like who I am… Has my brother changed so much as to no longer accept me for who and what I am? I do not think I can believe what I am hearing right now. When Amber had told her parents about Lolita dresses and wanting to hold more elegance than people did, they had been proud of her and willing to help her and support her. However, that love and support seemed to have stayed in Florida when she decided to fly to her birth-town. Ever so slightly, she shifted on her feet and dropped her eyes down to the ground before gently curtsying. “Well, brother, I believe that dear Chelsea may be missing us by now, may we be off to see her?” She asked him curiously as she raised herself back up, pulling on a pair of small, white gloves which matched the frills on her light blue dress.

“Yupp…” He picked his daughter up and started out of the airport, hearing his sister’s light footsteps behind him, he decided to not help her with her carry on. “They told me they’d put your bags in my car. So, we should be good.” He mentioned as they arrived to the car where, sure enough, her bags laid in the trunk, waiting to move into a new hanging closet. After settling themselves in the car, they headed back to their home to once again see Chelsea.

Walking back into the small apartment complex, Melody ran ahead of them to the elevator. "My niece is quite sweet." Amber mentioned with a blink of her eyes and a slight tilt of her head to the side as she paced after the little girl. Her brother gently smiled at her before following his daughter and picking her up as the elevator doors opened. They rode the elevator up to their floor, then walked off of it, carrying all the bags they could, even Melody carried a few of them. For a moment William watched his sister, and daughter, who ran ahead once again to their apartment.

"I just want you to fit in, okay? I think shopping would be a really good thing for you, and it'll give you a way to reconnect with Chelsea. Our town isn't as big as any town in Florida, of course, so it's really important that you fit in and get to know everyone from the start, okay?" William finished, constantly trying to assure that she'd follow his directions, but still felt as if she would have a hard time fitting in. Without another word and only a slight nod in response to his concerns, Amber made her way to her new home and walked in. She immediately followed Melody to their shared room and looked out the window.

Melody flopped down on her bed, as she dropped the bags she had brought in for her auntie, before glancing over at her looking out the window. "You okay?" She asked softly, blinking her eyes and shifting a little on her bed. "That's the fire escape. We're not supposed to use it unless we have to get out..." Melody whispered as she noted Amber's inquisitive gaze towards said ladder. "And that's your bed over there." She pointed across the room to the cheap bed which her father and sorta mother had worked so hard to buy. "It'll be okay, though, I promise." She smiled before starting out of the room again.

Her final glance at Amber had said it all, Melody would never judge her, unlike everyone else here. So, at least Amber had found a friend, though that friend was but a very young child, rumored to be "too much like Alyssa." For a moment she debated escape, but then determined it an unwise and unladylike move. I will simply have to do things the proper way. I will have to ask for permission to leave and hopefully they will let me. I will ask my brother, of course, because I do not doubt him to be easier on my differences than I think Chelsea will be. She finished her thought before sliding her bags onto the floor by her new bed and floating back out of the room to where her brother was. "May I go out? I think it necessary to stretch my legs a little. I had not really had the chance to do so since I left Florida, would you mind?" She asked softly with hopeful eyes of her brother. Still shocked by her odd behavior, Will couldn't help but start by shaking his head no, but then he realized it might be nice for her to get out.

"Don't go too far off and be back before dark, mom wouldn't be happy if you died or had some other Plains drama happen to you." He nodded, motioning to the door before stepping back into the kitchen to continue lunch which he had started.

Stifling a slight giggle, Amber smiled softly and a hint of delight shined in her eyes. "I thank you ever so much, brother! I am sure my walk will be much enjoyed, and mother should not have to worry. Nothing bad has ever happened to me during my time here, so I will surely take care of myself again." She grinned slightly before once again leaving the apartment.

After making her way outside, she immediately wandered to the pond in the central park far across town which she remembered so fondly.

Feeling saddened by her family's disapproval to her attire and personality and self in general, Amber sighed and sat down on a park bench overlooking the pretty pond, pulling out a tiny journal which she had hidden in a pocket within her skirt which had been hardly noticeable. She read some of the words within it about the past several years. Sighing again, she took the tiny pen and wrote down three words within it and boldened the lettering on the page for emphasis: I miss home. A few ducks flew into the pond and she wondered how they could be so fortunate to fly away at will and how she was unfortunate and incapable of ever truly escaping the scrutiny of her brother and his fiancee.

Looking away from the ducks, she noticed two girls her age, certainly twins, who she could not recall from her past here. Who are they? She wondered, smiling slightly as the softer looking twin. They are pretty... She pushed her thought away as soon as it approached her mind with regret and fear of it being discovered. She wasn't even that certain of her sexuality, but what would her brother ever say to her liking girls? Would he even be okay with that? Afterall, he was not exactly happy to learn about Amber, his prior girlfriend and mother to his daughter... was he? What if he attempted to disown me? With that thought, her eyes darkened again slightly and she pushed the smile off her face, she wouldn't allow herself to like girls.

The twins entered the park, taking in everything carefully with soft smiles on their faces. The park was beautiful, in Yui's opinion, but she too found it to be far from as beautiful as their home country. Even if they had lived in Tokyo which was very modern and a city, they had still been outside and seen other places, surrounded by breathtaking nature. Yui had always liked nature, and in fact, her sister had so too. This place was so very different from what they knew... it was hard to identify it as nature, even if it obviously-kind-of was.

Yui's eyes widened as a girl suddenly caught her attention. Wow, she's beeeeeeeeeautiful! And look at her dress! Oh my god, it's a lolita! It's so beautiful... She thought excitedly to herself, glancing at her sister briefly. Kanade was hiding behind her shyly, a small blush creeping across her cheeks as as she drank in the appearance of the girl. Yui smiled and grasped hold of her sisters wrist, quickly starting to to approach the girl with her friendly grin on her face.

"Konichiwa," Yui said happily, "I just wanted to tell you that your dress is absolutely beautiful! Oh my god, I never thought I would find anyone wearing lolita here. I mean, it's not that it's even that normal in Japan, but I totally didn't expect to find it here! Agh! I love you!" she said, nearly hugging Amber. However, her sister stopped her in time, grasping hold of her shirt and pulling her back.

"I-I'm sorry," Kanade said quickly, bowing politely as it is custom in Japan. "For my sister, that is. She sometimes goes a bit o-out of hand..." she mumbled softly, trying to keep herself from blushing so furiously in embarrassment.

Amber's eyes widened slightly as one of the girls attempted to hug her and her sister held her back. However, the twin's apparent embarrassment was slightly adorable and she found the urge to politely stand and curtsy back in response to her gentle bow. "It is entirely fine, miss... I am surprised to meet someone who knows of it and does not harshly critique it. I thank you both for that..." She trailed off, getting lost in the quieter twin's eyes. "What are your names? I seem to have forgotten to, umm, introduce myself." She stammered, losing her ladylike touch for a moment. "I go by Amber."

Yui looked down, scuffing her feet and sighing softly. "Sorry," she said, also bowing briefly, politely, before looking up again, "I just get so excited when meeting someone with such pretty dresses. I mean, I do have a few myself and would walk around in them every day (unless I'm cross dressing, I do that quite a bit too)...well... if we could effort it. Most people think it's weird, though," she shrugged her shoulders a little before smiling again. "Nice to meet you, Amber-san. I am Yui, and that's my twin, Kanade... come on, Kanade. Don't go all shy. I'm sure she won't bite or do anything bad, so there's no need to be scared!"

She nudged at her shy sister a little as she hid behind Yui again, peeking at Amber shyly. When around strangers, even if they were pretty, Kanade was not just a little shy. However, when Yui stepped away so that Kanade was suddenly on her own again, she once more bowed politely before saying softly. "U-uhm... yeah, it is a pleasure to make your acquaintance, Amber-san..." she straightened up and smiled a little, "why would we criticize it? We are all individuals with i-individual tastes, after all," Kanade pointed out, tilting her head as she watched the girl curiously.

"Is it normal to be criticized when expression individualism here?" Kanade asked curiously before her sister spoke again, her eyes sparkling brightly with admiration.

"More importantly- you would look soooooooooo pretty in one of my cosplaying sets, I'm a hundred percent sure! We should totally do that some day! All three of us!" she suggested happily. Never mind that there was a chance Amber didn't even really know what it was, or was into anime and manga, for that matter.

Slightly shocked by the excited personality clashing with the distanced one, Amber looked between the two sisters and smiled slightly, glancing over at the quieter twin. For whatever reason, Amber could tell she was fascinated by the girl and knew she wanted to get to know her better. "Um, yes, well, I like some anime, but typically avoid it because it can be, u-umm, rather odd at times... but most of it is alright, I suppose." She paused for a moment and finally pulled her eyes back to the sister, Yui, who she was talking to. "Thank you for appreciating my dress, my brother does not care for it at all, I think... He wishes for me to go shopping with his fiancee, but I know I will not care for that trip." She paused again, looking back to the shy sister, standing just slightly straighter and taking a step slightly back.

"I lived here when I was younger, but it has been a very long time since then. If my brother's apparent concerns are accurate, I am afraid for the coming school year because, well, I do not have any friends and I do not think they will accept me." She sighed softly and broke her gaze to look at the ground. Maybe I should go shopping with Chelsea... maybe the girl, Kanade will like me more if I wear the same clothes as them... but I like what I wear... She looked back up and gently blinked her eyes at the twins again while allowing a soft smile to slip across her face as she looked at Kanade again.
