xxAppearance:
Gracie’s appearance has changed over the years due to the different locations she been to. Her natural hair color is a honey brown, but she’s dyed it a few times in her life, especially red. She always prefers it mid-length though because it’s easier to pull her hair back that way. She’s use to having it pulled back but loves having it down though. Clothes wise she loves wearing colors and is very adaptable to different environments. Whenever in other countries though, she’s very mindful of what is acceptable.

Gracie is average height at 5’5”, with an hourglass figure. She’s very flexible and uses that to her advantage when getting into tight areas. Having been active her whole life, she has plenty of endurance and in fact has a lot of energy with affects her personality. She also knows self defense techniques also, so don’t underestimate her. She’s not a huge fan of make up, but will wear it when the occasion calls for it.





ImageImage

xxPersonality:

One word to sum up Gracie- quirky. She’ll tell you she’s interesting in anything and everything. Being an only child she’s use to attention, but depending on the situation, either loves it or hates it. She’s also use to getting her way and finds a way to get it. However due to her versatile personality, she has the demeanor of not being genuine. In reality, she feels too much and it’s one of the reasons why she continues to travel a lot because it helps keep her distracted, especially after the death of her parents. She’s very charitable too having been to 3rd world countries and part of her income goes to a few different charities.

Gracie loves exploring and seeing new places. Due to her parents’ connections, she was able to see places ordinary folk would be able to see. It’s one reason why she took up video blogging, she wanted to share these experiences with others. She’s intellectually smart too due to the kind of education she got and is observant. However due to her curious nature she’s gotten into plenty of trouble, but somehow manages to end up on her feet. Due to her quirky habits, she is label as weird. Gracie is easy going, but when pushed hard enough, she’s a spit fire and gives people a good tongue lashing.

She’s still grieving the death of her parents, even though it’s been over a year. She feels self-guilt for not being there when the accident happened.

xxHistory:

Gracie, born Gracelyn Alydia Deschamps, is the only child of American Phoebe Harding and Frenchman Louis Deschamps. Even though the pair got married, her mother always kept her birth name for professional reasons. Both of her parents were archeologists and met during dig in southern France. They fell for each other pretty quickly and lived there for a few years. This was where Gracie was born. When she was a year old, her family moved again and Gracie always came with them. Since they moved around a lot through her education was done through home schooling and tudors. She was labeled as ‘gifted’ and graduated at the age of 15. Her major love was photography and she always wrote about her experiences too. Wanting to have some kind of educational experience in a classroom setting, she ended up going to the Vevey School of Photography in Vevey, Switzerland and loved it, even though she quickly got a reputation among her peers as weird. It was mostly due to her different interests from coin collecting to anime. Her vast knowledge on different subjects came at a disadvantage when very few people didn’t know how to respond to her. She did manage to make a few friends though, but mostly got along with her professors because she always took her studies seriously. She managed to graduate with honors after 4 years.

During this time she became an apprentice to for one of the local photography studios in the area and for her last semester, traveled to with the main photographer to Louisiana. Surprisingly, as much as she’s traveled, only been to the USA once and that was to DC at the age of 12 when her father was invited to visit the Smithsonian for a reception with the unveiling of an exhibit and she went along with him. She instantly fell in love with Louisiana and knew instantly this place would her ‘home base’. As much as her parents traveled they always had a home base to recharge their batteries, and this was Arles for them. When Gracie graduated her parents helped her move to Baton Rogue and decided to move into the area themselves since the family was really close. Youtube and other Social Media sites were becoming popular and Gracie would use that to her advantage while working as a Freelance Photographer. She ended up video blogging her travels and it helped grow a following on Youtube and Twitter, enough so that she got money on the side through both Youtube and Patreon. Gracie was raised to give back and a good portion of her income goes to the charity from helping with providing goods to third world countries to conservation. Some of her favorite moments were spending time with kids from these areas and she loved giving them activities to do.

Her life was going well until tragedy struck when she was 22. While traveling through Peru off the grid, her parents got involved in a major car accident, killing them both. Gracie wouldn’t be able to hear about what happened until she got back on the grid a few days later when she did her weekly check up on her parents. The news shocked and devastated her. The funeral was very somber and even though there were plenty of support for her, Gracie felt incredibly lonely. She never knew her mother’s family since they disowned her for going against their wishes in becoming an archeologist and her father was an only child himself and his parents had passed away from when she was too young to remember them. In order to live on, she consumed herself in work to forget about her pain.

Upon hearing about this competition, she decided to sign up purely out of curiosity. She still needed a good distraction and this would provide for one. Plus she figured if she won the money, she would us that for her charities and to also create a scholarship for children who lost their parents to drunk drivers. Unconsciously, she’s hoping to find someone to help ease her loneliness. She’s never really dated either though due to her lifestyle, so she’s going into this completely blind. It should also be noted that she doesn’t have any kind of accent do to her moving a lot.

She definitely wants someone who can accept her quirkiness. She knows she’s odd. She also hopes to find someone who enjoys traveling. She’s definitely willing to compromise though since she’s had this kind of discussion with her parents about finding a mate. As long as she has something to do, she’s willing to stay home more if a mate requires that of her. A potential mate does not haven’t be intellectually smart, but be able to hold a conversation with her. Definitely someone who respects her and her need for space and independence. He must like kids though since she loves kids. She is okay with not having them either since her parents were never able to have kids after her.

xxLikes
Biggest love is photography. Besides traveling, Gracie also love cooking. She had to learn how to take care of her physical needs when she was in areas without modern conveniences. She can create a variety recipes, but prefers fresh ingredients, and loves cajun food from Louisiana. Of course because she travels she loves video blogging when she’s allowed to. There have been times when she wasn’t along to take pictures or record videos. She has an affinity for Asian culture, having spent a lot of time there, especially Japan. Among her hobbies are coin collecting and watching anime.


xxDislikes:
Gracie does not like her mother’s family since they disowned her mother and wants nothing to do with them. Having traveled a lot, she actually prefers rural areas to urban since they tend to be more dirty and crowded. In fact, she lives on the outskirts of Baton Rogue due to her preferences. She also does not like canned food. Gracie likes a lot of music, but cannot stand modern US pop, especially if autotune is involved. Since she dislikes conflict, she’ll leave the area to avoid it if gets too much for her to handle. This goes without saying, but she can’t stand those who are judgmental.

xxStrengths:
    *Intellectual
    *Observant
    *Cooking
    *Multilingual (Knows all Latin languages fluently, some Japanese, Chinese, and Hindu)
    *Adaptable
    *Researching
    *Outgoing


xxWeaknesses:
    *Talks a lot
    *Introverted on the inside
    *Use to getting her way
    *Feels too much
    *Too curious for her own good
    *Odd behavior at times





ImagexxFun Facts:
Gracie has had several injuries over the years due to her explorations. She’s broken one of her arms while climbing a tree and slipped. She also busted her front two upper teeth when mountain biking and when head over heels. So her top front teeth are fake. As a result, she doesn’t each whole apples or corn on the cob. She still has her own personal journal that is strictly private. She’s bringing it with her to the show though. She hopes to write her own biography from these journals one day. She’s thinking of doing her first one when she turns 25.

DAY 01
Paradise Island, Bahamas
Image


The sound of crushing waves can be heard in the distance as fourteen complete strangers stand before James Haynes, the host of Are You the One, with their new home behind them. This luxury villa will be their home for the next seven weeks as they go on a journey to find their perfect match. Seven men stand on the left side and seven women on the right. A few are already eyeing the opposites appraising each of them.

"Welcome everyone. You are all here for one thing, because you all have one thing in common: you suck at relationships." A few people laugh nervously, some shrug more or less agreeing, and others grit their teeth awkwardly. "Each one of you has been put through an extensive matchmaking process, using psychologists, compatibility tests, professional matchmakers, and information from your friends, families, and exes. Through this, we've been able to find an ideal match for each of you."

"Take a look at those across from you. One of them is your perfect match and it's up to you to find out who it is. You will have seven chances to pair up and find those seven, perfect matches. If you can do that, you'll leave the island with love and one more thing..." He pauses for dramatic effect, the contestants stare at him excitedly, "You will split the largest cash prize ever offered in MTV History. ONE MILLION DOLLARS!" The group cheers, pleased by this news. "Good luck!"

After finishing the show introduction, everyone moved inside the house. The sky was slowly moving into dusk so it was time to get the intros out of the way. Daniel lead the way, taking on the role of pack leader like he does with most things. While the house was gorgeous and he definitely appreciated it, he was more drawn to the bar hidden behind the staircase leading upstairs. 'Finally, my area of expertise.' He found an unopened bottle of champagne with fourteen glasses. He preferred something a lot stronger, but he can make do with this for now. "I found the alcohol everybody! Let's get this party started!" He began to pour drinks to anyone who held their glass out. He made his signature flirty eyes to a few of the girls before serving everyone.

Daniel raised his glass, "May we all find love or at least a good time! I look forward to getting to know all of you and I can't wait to find my match among these beautiful ladies. To being rich in love and rich with love." Daniel took a drink, finishing his toast. He ended up drinking the whole thing at once. A glass of champagne wouldn't have any effect on him so chugging the thing wouldn't hurt him.

~
Confessional
"I was laying it on thick when I gave that toast. I'm here to win the money. The girls in this house better not pull the whole, " He pauses, making his voice high pitched and valley girl sounding, "I like him, but he's not my match' thing, because I'm not losing 70K just because you felt something for the wrong person. If I find an awesome girl, great, but I won't have a hopeless romantic ruining this for me... God, I feel bad for the girl you've paired with me."
~

The toasting having ended, introductions among the contestants began. Daniel was right in the middle of it. Did he go over to the cute blonde he saw earlier? Or red hair? He could go to one of the three brunette girls or the two black haired ones. He decided on one of the brunettes. He thought he heard her name started with K. She was easily one of the hottest girls in the house and had the 'Head Bitch in Charge' look about her. He liked the difficult ones. They were the hardest to win over and most likely his type. Assholes tend to go with the bitchy girls so why not start there?

Daniel approached her, going straight for the hug. It was appropriate considering what this show was about and it didn't hurt to have some physical contact. "Hey! How ya doin'? I'm Daniel."

Joshua Haggerty
{Twenty-Five - #194BF2 - Atlanta, Georgia - HERE}
Joshua followed the rest of the men down the stairs and straight to the bar. The pack was led by one whom he wasn't too find of, Daniel. He had a pack leader quality that reminded him of the popular kids in high school, and this wasn't high school. Daniel had taken it upon himself to pop open the first bottle of champagne of the night and pour for those who extended their glasses, which Joshua did.

He took the opportunity to let his eyes scan the crowd. There were so many beautiful women and he wasn't sure who he wanted to approach first. His gaze lingered on a caramel skinned girl with very curly hair, trying to catch her eye. He thought her name was Franky but he would have to ask again after they - oh no, Daniel had decided to give a toast. This ought to be good.

"May we all find love or at least a good time! I look forward to getting to know all of you and I can't wait to find my match among these beautiful ladies. To being rich in love and rich with love." Daniel spoke, raising his glass. Josh followed suit but rolled his eyes a little bit at a speech he was fairly sure was bullshit.

~
Confessional:
"That guy is full of shit. I really hope none of the girls are falling for his show. He might be a great time at a party, but I don't see him being serious enough to have a full time relationship.
When things with him start to go down hill just remember that you heard it from me first."

Josh winks at the camera.
~

They all clinked their glasses together and Josh downed his in one swig. Finally, the theatrics were over and it was time to get down to business. He nudged the man next to him, Tony, and asked, "Who are you going after?" Tony was a good man as far as Josh could tell and he already considered him to be the best friend he'd made here thus far. He hoped there was a woman here who was good enough for the southern grown, traditional, gentleman that Tony was.

While he was waiting for a reply, Josh's eyes had found Franky again, but they had also glanced a girl named Gracie and another one named Gwyn. It was difficult to know who would be the smartest to approach first as they were all stunning. Since it was only the first night of many, though, he didn't figure it would matter too much whom he talked to and whom, if anyone, he hooked up with tonight. He turned back to the bar and got a shot of Jack Daniels. Within seconds it was gone and quickly replaced with a rocks glass full of Jameson, neat. He took a small sip and licked his lips, eye darting between the girls and wondering to himself if anyone was hoping he'd be the one to approach them.

Tony Rogers
{27~#006400~Colorado Springs, CO~Here}
Tony had been to many places, but never to a tropical location. It was certainly a big departure from Colorado. He had lived in Florida, but that was the Panhandle, not like Miami and if he was being honest with himself, he did prefer cooler weather and higher altitudes. Still he learned to adapted to new situations so he was pretty sure he would manage here. He did need to buy new closes though and his mother and one of his sisters helped him out in that area since he wasn't a fan of the activity. The place they were staying out was definitely fancy. His parents had their dream home now, but even it wasn't this big since his mother did not want to clean a big place. If by some chance he did win money at the end of this, he made a promise to himself to send his parents on a nice cruise. He did discuss it with his siblings and all were on board with the idea. If not, they already decided they would just do it anyway, but it would take longer.

Tony's mind was diverted to the present when their host talked about the game and it was then Tony started looking at the women. First one that did catch his eye was the blonde, but not not wanting to be rude he only glanced at her briefly before glancing at the other ladies. All of them were lovely, but this didn't surprise him. His mother watched these kinds of shows and he learned good-looking people always made it onto these shows. He didn't appreciate the host's comment about sucking at relationships. He knew he was good at relationships, he had been married and very dedicated to his late wife Emily. Thinking about her now still brought about some sadness, but he knew that his late wife would want him to be happy and he did want a family too, so he figured it wouldn't hurt to try this.

Confessional
"I honestly don't know what to expect in this kind of situation. I plan to take it as I go. Quick shout out to my family though, thanks for everything."


Once the host left, one of the guys took charge with passing out the drinks. Having seen the guys before the girls, Tony knew already this would be one of the 'party guys' and would have an extra eye on him. He himself wasn't a fan of wine, so grabbed a beer instead. Soon, one other guy joined him, one that Tony liked already.

"Who are you going after?"

"Well, the blonde initially caught my eye, but I plan on finding out more about these ladies before deciding who I am spending time with more."

He honestly didn't know what to do next though. This was a unique situation and he felt like a fish out of water at the moment.

Gracie Deschamps
{23~#C71585~Baton Rouge, Louisiana~Here}
Gracie would be the first to admit that she was disappointed to learn that the show would be pre-recorded, because she was hoping to use the confessionals to talk to her online audience that way. Oh well, she had a back up plan and simply stated she wouldn't upload anything for a few months in her last vlog. She did get a lot of support, many stating they would watch the show. Of course by the time the show would air, she'd be either be back to doing what she normally would do, or there be major changes to her life again. Just like with any change though, she would go with the flow.

At the moment she was simply excited about this new venture and had already made a friend in the house in the form of Elizabeth Sawyer. She kept close to the blonde as they made their way into the house, which was huge. She been to a few resorts in the past and this was was definitely top of the line as far as houses went. She couldn't wait to explore the grounds. She been to the Bahamas once, but that had been for charitable reasons. Interesting how such a small area could have different kinds of places. You have the very rich and very poor. Of course this was a tourist place so it wasn't that surprising. She listen to one of the guys make a speech and giggled at his words. She may be green when it came to dating, but she knew a corny line when she heard one. Seeing everyone start interacting, she turned to Elizabeth.

"So what do you want to do first? Talk to some people or scope out the place? I am too excited, I don't know what to pick!"

Confessional
"Seriously, this place is huge, and I want to see it all! But I know that I also have to start conversing with people, especially the guys first. Focus, Gracie, remember there's a reason why you're here, and sadly it's not just to have fun hehe."


She briefly looked around at the guys, not only looking for someone for herself, but to help out Elizabeth too.

XXXXXXXXElizabeth Sawyer
{ Twenty-Four | #259ADF | Dallas, Texas | HERE }



Elizabeth couldn't keep the smile off of her face as she sat through the open ceremony for the show. Getting on this show was a one in a million chance and she couldn't help her excitement at being one of the few chosen. The remark about being terrible at relationships was true for her so she couldn't help an awkward laugh. She hasn't had a ton of luck in the dating department so hopefully her luck will change now.

After finishing remarks, Elizabeth followed everyone to house and immediately was greeted with a glass of champagne. She was used to such things after dance performances so having a glass wouldn't hurt. However, she wasn't planning on getting drunk. Every speech her father gave her about alcohol and boys came to mind plus the fact that her actions would be seen on TV played a role in her choice too.

The guy giving the toast was one of the several guys that caught her eye during opening remarks. His speech was super cheesy, but she thought it was cute in a cheesy way. She took a drink from her glass, moving closer to Gracie. She was one of the girls she felt an instant connection with despite only meeting for the first time earlier today. Elizabeth knew she was at a bit of disadvantage coming into the house. She was the friend type more than the romantic kind so she felt she need to up her 'game' if she wanted any of the guys to notice her. Having a friend to sympathize and spill these doubts to would be necessary if she was going to survive.

It seemed like it was time to socialize with everyone. People were already partnering up and Elizabeth felt awkward about whole situation. Going up and talking to someone? Piece of cake. Going up and flirting with someone? A disaster waiting to happen. A few guys were still by themselves, but Elizabeth wasn't feeling up to that just yet. She definitely wanted to talk to the cutie pie with the curly brown hair and the All American boy, currently sitting by himself when his friend left. When Gracie mentioned exploring, it sounded like a better option than trying to talk to the guys themselves plus it could be an opener for the guys to approach them.

"We have to explore!" She grabbed Gracie's hand before practically dragging her upstairs. "We need the best bed before the others get taken." The sight of all the seven full sized beds brought an uncomfortable chuckle. She guessed they would try to get everyone to share a bed, but the fact that all seven of them were almost touch each other, it was more of a giant matress.
~
Confessional
"I get that they want all of us to be as close as possible, but I'd rather not roll over and be in bed with a different person. Hopefully, whoever is next to Gracie and I won't get those kind of ideas. I'm a hug cuddler, but not with strangers."
~
Feeling the need to share this newfound area, Elizabeth felt the need to share. Calling out from the top of the staircase, "Check out the bedroom!" Hopefully, one of the guys from earlier would follow them up.

XXXXXXXXXXXXJack Armstrong
{ Twenty-Six | #bd0808 | New Orleans, Louisiana | HERE }



Jack couldn't believe the mess he's gotten himself into. He despised TV shows like this one. The likelihood of him and this 'perfect match' ending up together was less than likely. Hell, nearly half only end up hooking up and then being 'friends.' Yes, he is being cynical and he was also trying to hide how uncomfortable he was. Jack wasn't the outgoing type this show looks for and he is as awkward as he is quiet. He felt like the host was talking directly at him when saying they all sucked at relationships. Jack's past relations didn't end on the best terms so he'd be surprised if any of these girls gave him the time of day.

Champagne was being served, followed by a mediocre at best toast. Daniel, he made a point of remembering all of the guys' names, reminded him of every jock he met in high school: cocky, full of himself, and an attention seeker. The guy was irritating, but Jack wasn't going to do anything about it unless Daniel pissed him off. It was too early to tell, but Jack could tell this guy is going to be the asshole of the house.

Needing something stronger than champagne, Jack got to work making himself a whiskey neat at the bar. He's been told he's more outgoing when he is intoxicated, but starting the night off drunk wouldn't do. '"Don't do anything stupid, Armstrong." He mutters to himself as he takes a drink, leaning on the staircase.

He guessed now was the time to talk to talk to the girls in the house. He saw a few girls he'd like to get to know. The pretty girl in the black dress was in a group with another girl and Jake and Josh. Jack wasn't the type to try and join a group he wasn't close with. He saw a few people he would've liked to have a chat with, but when he heard someone talking about the bedroom, Jack thought that sounded better than trying to approach someone.

He made his way upstairs, surveying every inch of the house. It was a nice vacation home for the time so he was happy about that. Two girls stood upstairs, the blonde and the redhead. The blonde was the stereotypical American beauty while the redhead was more the cute, quirky girl. They looked to be nice, but appearances can be deceiving. Jack himself is a prime example. He took a seat on one of the beds, claiming it as his own and whoever wanted to join him. Jack wasn't picky. Taking a breathe and forcing something out of his mouth so he wouldn't sit there in brooding silence like he usually does. "I guess they want us up close and personal."

Daniel couldn't believe how easy this was becoming. It was the first night and he had the attention of the hottest girl in the house. Strategy wise, he should try to get to know the others girls tonight, too. If he only focused on Katherine, he'd have a tougher time finding his match. But what the hell, it was only the first few hours.

Daniel watched with a smile as she batted those pretty eyes at him. The flirting game was only beginning and something told Daniel she plays to win, just like him. A potential match possibly. He leaned on the table, mocking her by taking a drink from his champagne flute. He never broke eye contact with her as he took a sip. Daniel knew he was right about her. She was the type of girl who wanted to be in charge. However, Daniel didn't fall for every pretty girl he set his eye on and Katherine would be mistaken if she thought he would be wrapped around her finger.

"I guess you can call me Dan, if you like," Daniel says playfully, "I've seen a few things I tonight. A certain lady in red has caught my eye, makes me feel like a bull. I'm tempted to go ahead and charge, but I'm being a gentleman tonight." What he said might be on the crude side, but he had a feeling Katherine would approve.

Daniel heard the girl.... blondie he thinks, call out about the bedroom upstairs. He didn't know what bed arrangements entail, but it was likely going to be tight and push them all together. Hell, if he gets to spend the night with one of the girls in bed it's been a good day. That was with no sex involved too. Hooking up the first night will lead to disaster. A slow seduction would be the most effective to win any of these girls over. Rushing things leads to attachment and attachment to the wrong person means no 70K. If the girl in front of him is his match, great, but he wasn't about to get too attached, although she is his current front runner.

"Would it be bold of me to ask you to check out the bedrooms with me?" Daniel didn't seen any reason for her to say no, but you never know.

XXXXXXXXElizabeth Sawyer
{ Twenty-Four | #259ADF | Dallas, Texas | HERE }


Elizabeth took a second to flop on one the beds nearby. It was so soft, felt like she was on a cloud. If she wasn't nervous/excited and had a drink, she might've fallen asleep right there. It still boggled her mind about possibly sharing a bed with one of the guys. Elizabeth has always been told she was old fashioned, but sleeping, and she means just sleeping with a stranger after first meeting them, felt wrong. It was the way she was raised and logically, it made sense to her. Sleeping with a stranger sounds like it could lead to wrong impressions. Elizabeth is super happy to have a bedmate who's a girl to make this easier. She would have no idea what to say if a guy asked her to share a bed.

"I guess they want us up close and personal." Elizabeth shot up from the bed when she heard a new voice. It was too deep to be Gracie's. The tattooed guy from earlier sat across them on another bed. His name started with a J she thinks, but she believes their are two other guys with J names here. Elizabeth didn't know what to think of him, but he was very handsome, in a dangerous bad boy way. His remark put her a bit on edge, because he wasn't sure if it was a statement or some kind of pick up line. Again, Elizabeth couldn't get a good read on him.

"Maybe, I'm more of a 'get to know you better before hoping into bed' type. I'm Elizabeth by the way." Elizabeth wanted to start off being honest with the guys. If they were after just a hook up, then they should find someone else. She knew this could put her in a bad position with the guys. Saying that the deed was off the table too earlier tends to make men leave, more men than she'd like to admit. Hopefully, Gracie could jump in and try to save this conversation since it's getting awkward for Elizabeth.

Maybe Jack's opening remark wasn't the right choice for the two girls. Elizabeth almost jumped off the lead she was lounging on when Jack spoke. She must've not noticed him enter which isn't uncommon. Jack has been told he could've been a thief with how quiet he can be. Not off to a good start.

"Hey, I'm Jack. Sorry if I scared you. I should work on getting louder, I guess." He took a drink from his whiskey, trying to distract himself from this conversation. He could tell Elizabeth didn't feel comfortable around him. She seemed very sweet in a Southern, preacher's daughter kind of way. Hell, her appearance even reminded him of how people, like her Father, think angels should look. Jack would have to guess she's going to most inexperienced when it came to relationships, like how people are supposed to stay 'pure' till marriage. If she stared spouting off that his tattoos were going to damn him to hell, Jack... didn't know what he would do, but she'd become his least favorite.

Confessional

"I'm surprised a girl like her would come onto this show. She does know what tends happens here, right?"

Taking another swig, Jack stays seated seeing if either girl wants to continue this conversation, or if he should make his way back downstairs. It depends on Red, because Jack doesn't think he'll get any more out of Elizabeth.

Gracie Deschamps
{23~#C71585~Baton Rouge, Louisiana~Here}
Gracie raced after Elizabeth to look at their sleeping quarters. She never even bothered to grab a drink herself. She did drink, but only socially. Her father was French after all, so she actually became familiar with wine before she was legal. Still her parents had taught her the responsibility of it. She never drank when going into risky areas or when vlogging. She had to set a good example after all.

After checking out the sleeping quarters, it wasn't long before they were joined by one of the guys.

"I guess they want us up close and personal."

Gracie giggled at that but before she could reply, Elizabeth commented.

"Maybe, I'm more of a 'get to know you better before hoping into bed' type. I'm Elizabeth by the way."

It now just occurred to Gracie that Elizabeth didn't want to bunk with a guy. She had never bunk with a guy either, unless she counted all of the times she had to share a tent with her father. If she was honest with herself, she wouldn't want to bunk with a guy either. It was a good thing she was comfortable with Elizabeth because she wasn't sure she could bunk with any of the other girls, even though she liked several of them. Soon the man introduced himself.

"Hey, I'm Jack. Sorry if I scared you. I should work on getting louder, I guess."

"Hi there Jack, I am Gracie! And no worries you didn't scare me in the least. Personally I am just glad we got nice beds. I can't tell you how many times I've slept in a tent off grid. Now those times are an experience, let me tell you." she said, giggling.

Confession
"Seriously, this one time I was actually sleeping in the middle of the jungle in India. I got wet a lot, but with my good tent, at least I never got wet at night. I did learn a valuable lesson though, never go camping during the raining season hehe."


Looking around she decided it was time to rejoin the crowd.

"Hmmm, might we rejoin the crowd now? I never got myself a drink yet. I do hope they have a good fruity wine down there, or better, a margarita machine."

Tony Rogers
{27~#006400~Colorado Springs, CO~Here}
Tony watched as Josh headed off to talk to a couple ladies. Seeing others had started interacting, noticed a few missing. It was then he recalled that the blonde and red-head had headed somewhere else. Probably looking for their sleeping quarters. Deciding he would check it out himself, he headed for that that area.

Sure enough as soon as he arrived, he saw the two ladies and one of the guys. Looking at the beds, he came to the quick conclusion that they would be sharing. He already knew right off he wouldn't be asking any of the ladies. Not only would it not be appropriate, but it might make the girls uncomfortable. He knew not all guys were like him, but he was sticking to his morals. He didn't mind sharing beds with a guy though. He's had to share beds with his brothers in the past.

"Good evening. I hope I am not interrupting anything. This is certainly nice place. Oh, my name is Anthony, but you can call me Tony. Everyone in my family does."
