Stubborn âœĻ Impatient ✧ Protective âœĻ Loving ✧ Sweet âœĻ Insecure
╚══════════════════════════╝

One thing that is very clear about Adrian, is that he's a stubborn little shit. Often fighting in class with others, who have different opinions, Adrian isn't one to back down from a fight. He seems to inherit most of his personality from his father, much to his mother's dismay. The boy is a volatile bomb waiting to explode on others. Temperamental anger and impatientness do not mix well. It's simply like a nuclear bomb, and he's not apologizing for it. Adrian doesn't like to wait for things. He prefers to take grasp of it, and take it by his own hand, he doesn't like to be lead along through shit just because he'll "eventually" get something good. He prefers taking the good upfront. Adrian does not view himself as a follower, he's very much a leader and has no qualms about leading others. Despite all the upright roughness, the male is loving and kind. He would often be seen helping his younger siblings with their homework and taking care of them while his mother worked. He doesn't care for this, he feels like he's able to help others and it leaves him with a warm feeling in his heart.

Adrian is an extremely friendly person, he'll often soften things for other people. Which seems to be contradicted by his inability to deal with his own emotions. Preferring to focus on his friends' problems, he'll let them go on and on for hours with their issues. But he will never talk about his own. He feels he is a burden when he does, so he avoids talking about himself.

Do not touch Adrian's friends. Don't hurt them. Don't look at them the wrong way. Don't do anything you think will set him off, he's overly protective of his friends. Them being the reason he hadn't left when he could have, he holds his friends over everything. He would even go to prison for his friends (and has almost on several occasions) and has no remorse for what he does. Around the high-school, Adrian earned himself the title of a trouble-maker. Using sarcasm as a defense mechanism tends to get you sent to the principal's office several times in a row. Getting in fights, scandals with teachers (a misunderstood rumor), he was well known in the school. All in all, if you know Adrian, he's a good person.

FAMILY
Rosaline Thomas Mother {Alive}
Michael Kingsleigh Biological Father {Alive}
Adam Thomas Step-Father {Alive}
Samantha Thomas Younger Sister {Alive}
Madison Thomas Younger Brother {Alive}
Brayden Thomas Younger Brother {Alive}

HISTORY
To begin with, Adrian was an unplanned child. His parents tried and tried, but they weren't succeeding. When they stopped trying, Rosaline became pregnant with him. She and Michael began to fight, and he left. He wasn't ready to be a father, and Rosaline was pushing him harder than normal to find a job and help her pay her bills. He refused, and she met Adam. By then, Adrian was ten years old, and he already had two younger siblings by two other men. His mother began to fall apart, so the young boy took it up by himself to take care of his siblings. Making him a parental unit at such a young age.

Taking over the more responsible capabilities, Adrian wound up taking care of his two drunken parents. In his mother's drunken rages, she'd compare him to his father, and hit him. She'd blame Adrian for her and Michael splitting up, and he became extremely resentful towards his mother. But he never once said anything, because he needed to care for his siblings. He wouldn't let them go through such a pain of the world he did. He sheltered them as much as he could, by the time he was fifteen, his youngest brother Brayden was born, and he fell in love with another child all over again. Eventually, this got to the point of where his siblings started to refer to him as their father. It started out as a joke, but to Adrian, he felt like they eventually became sincere. Adrian's step-father had been arrested shortly after his youngest brother's birth, and his mother continued to slip more into the deep dark disease of alcoholism. Adrian started working odd-jobs for neighbors, and bussing at restaurants and becoming essentially a "grown-up".

As the time came closer for him to graduate, Adrian's step-father came out. And the two would nonstop argue. Adam would think he was trying to cut him out of the picture, and Adrian would become defensive. This lead into several altercations between the two. His mother, never even bothered to take her child's side. She always sided wtih Adam. Soon, Adrian became numb to this. Eventually going to the parties in the school, and getting wasted. Adrian had always been "closeted" about his interest in men, developing in middle school with a person he grew up with. He never came out in a way he wished. It all happened at a party.

One of the parties the "rich kids" threw for a holiday, that Adrian managed to get an invitation from. He spent most of the party drunk off his ass, then met a boy named Blake. The two hit it off well, and ended up making out at the party. Well, people took pictures, pictures got around and his parents found out. Kicking him out, because they weren't going to "raise a fag". With his savings, he agreed to the plan to move to New York. A fresh start, a new him.

Elijah was really thinking to himself that maybe having them moving out might've been a slight bad idea in the moment. But that was something that he was going to keep to himself for the time being. Although, he really liked having his independence and constantly being around his best friends all the time. Elijah had finished packing his belongings in his room and wondered to himself where his roommate was. Or better yet, where the hell everyone else was.

He had hoped to himself that no one generally backed out on him without his knowledge but that wouldn't have been the case, for real. Elijah pulled out his Samsung 6 Plus from his pocket, checking to make sure he doesn't have any missed messages from his friends. Plus, today was move in day and June 1, so they had no choice but to be there and get settled into their room. While pondering on the thought for a moment, he decided to text his friends, just to check in on them to make sure they were okay.


To: Addie â™Ĩ
Hey there, Addie. Are you here already? Need to be buzzed in? What's up?

To: Pop Sis â™Ĩ
Need help unpacking or carrying boxes, sis? lol


Those were the only two messages that he sent out so far as he went on his internet on the phone to browse some clubs. Just in case they wanted to have a little bit of fun tonight and celebrate being out on their own on the first night. There was a club not too far from their apartment building entitled, Club Delirium, and it was one of the hottest destinations and Elijah knew that they had to hit it up tonight. Well, that is if everyone was definitely up for it.

With a sigh, Elijah laid back first onto his bed and waited for some replies to come through or for someone to text him first. But for now, he guessed that he'd just lay there and stare up at his ceiling and constantly check his phone for messages.

Dialogue: #E4287C
Location: 2B Kitchen
╚═══════════════╝
The clock had just turned over from AM to PM as Lizzie placed the final of her five pillows onto her freshly made bed. The room around her was devoid of any boxes, after she had arrived at 6:00am that morning to begin unloading and unpacking into her new place. Poor Simon had been drug along for the ride, but as she finally looked up from her daze of OCD organizing, she realized she had no idea where her roommate had gone off to. A flash of guilt reddens her cheeks and she smooths the palm of her hands against the black leggings over her thighs.

She had unpacked her kitchen utensils first, and stocked the fridge after her 8:00am run around the neighborhood to get a feel for what jogging route would be best for her and Elijah in the mornings. Wrapped in bandages, her feet pad across the floor toward the fridge. Chocolate brown eyes glance over to the clock, ensuring that it was noon and an acceptable time to text the group. She pulls open the group chat with one hand as the other opens the fridge to pull out the eggs.

To: New York or Bust
Hey, guys! Everyone make it in okay?

Short. Sweet. To the point.

Her iPhone 7+ is dropped lightly onto the counter as she sets about scrambling the eggs. It's not more than a minute before she reached over for it again, between stirring the eggs, to turn on one of her playlists and to text Simon.

Si-Fy
I'm making eggs! ❤ Where are you?

Stand By Me played on a harp comes from the speakers of her iPhone just moments after the text chimes it's indication of being sent. Content, a sigh lifts her lips into a smile and she turns back to the eggs, swaying just slightly to the music as she cooks.

The Insecure One
Location: Apartment Building
╚═══════════════╝
――――――☆――――――
Dani was sitting in a taxi being driven by a foreign guy whom she only assumed was from India when her phone went off, signaling that someone posted in their group chat. Lizzie was wondering if everyone got in okay.

To: New York and Bust
I'm here. Just pulling up in a taxi. Would you mind coming down to help me bring my things up?

Dani knew not everyone was there yet, which wasn't surprising. She just hoped that whoever was already at the apartment building would come down and help her grab her things because the longer the man sat there in front of the apartments, the more money she would have to pay him as the meter went on.

Dani climbed out of the taxi just as he popped the trunk open for her. Dani smiled a bit and glanced back and forth down the streets, she was finally in New York, her new home. After taking in her surroundings for a brief couple of seconds, she turned on her heels to the back of the taxi and began pulling her things out of the trunk one by one. Dani tried to grab as much as she could carry because she didn't want to make more than one trip if she could help it.

Caila ruffled her hair in the mirror of her bathroom and eagerly eyed the box of pale pink hair dye on the counter. New move new her right? She ran her black painted nails through the damp blonde locks around her shoulder and chewed on her lip in thought.

Her phone chirped alerting her of a text, which brought her from her thoughts. She picked up the phone, seeing the notification was from the group she opened the message and swiftly would respond.

I'm already here in my room, left my prison as soon as i could.

She left the dye alone for now and plopped down on the bed, closing her eyes taking in the sweet silence of her own room. There was no one to yell at her. The place smelled fresh and clean. It was a beautiful new start, a refresher to life, there were no bad memories here to haunt her, Caila's own little safe spot from the world.

Her phone chirped again and she looked at the group message and would type a prompt response

It's heaven inside Dani!! I'll help you get situated :)

She jumped off the bed, and would proceed to exit her place, and running downstairs, she flashed a bright smile and went to reach for a bag from Dani, softy saying, "Glad ya could make it."

She shuffled her feet awkwardly as she looked around at the busy lifestyle of The Big Apple.

Boy. It felt lovely to be away from his family, but still a small part of him felt guilty for the whole leaving thing. But his siblings knew if they needed him, they could reach him on his phone. After announcing he was leaving, Adrian used some of his saved up money to buy himself an iPhone 6, and only gave the number to his siblings for emergencies. He clutched the necklace his siblings got for him as going away gift. He checked his phone receiving an onslaught of messages from the New York or bust chat.

To: New York or Bust
yo, i'm at starbux any1 want anything?

After arriving a few hours earlier, Adrian dropped his bags off in the room he knew he'd be sharing with Eli, and headed to the local Starbucks so he could talk to one of the managers about working there part-time. He was gonna work at one of the nightclubs down in New York, but during the day, he wanted to get something done. After a short interview with the manager, she told Adrian he could start the following Tuesday, and he was excited. He would sit there with an interest in the area, he was excited and nervous at the same time, so he sent a message to Eli.

To: Eli
bruh, i'm so nervous help plx

Amory . Eldridge - Location: Just Arriving - Dialogue:#000080 - Outfit



Well here he was. Almost fifty hours of driving over eight states with some interesting stops along the way and Amory was finally entering New York City. When they all decided to move in together Amory was sportive of the idea but now with hindsight being twenty twenty, perhaps their choice of location was not the most practical. Never the less here they were, new city, new home, starting a new life. As a bonus all of them would be sharing this new start and it's adventures together. Still didn't stop Amory from having restless leg syndrome from the two day plus drive.

All that aside Amory didn't regret moving with his friends, though his decision to drive here without a co-driver was one of those mental blunders he had on occasion. Driving out of the Holland Tunnel Amory was quite impressed with New York. Sure he had seen many picture of it but seeing the city in person with it's towering buildings, bustling streets and it's general atmosphere were quite a far cry from what you saw from a second hand medium. Especially all of the unclothed, tail gating, cut you off the road, blaring their horns drivers!

As he was driving his noticed he was low on gas and pulled into a shell gas station to fill up. After paying at the pump and sitting in the driver seat waiting his Samsung Galaxy S5 alerted him to someone talking in the chat. Amory opened the chatroom and found several messages from the group. Chuckling at some of the responses he typed up a response to each one.

To: New York or Bust

Just pulled into the city ten minutes ago. All is well except for some restless leg syndrome.


My apologies for not being there to help everyone. I'll make it up when I get there.


After sending the message Amory paused and looked into his SUV, a 2017 Toyota Highlander. All of his more important belongings were loaded in the SUV and everything else had been shipped ahead. Though the SUV was loaded with his personal things and some cross country driving essentals he had some room to spare. Amory opened the app again and messaged all of the group,

To: New York or Bust

Stopped to get some gas, anyone want me to pick up anything along the way?

Elijah's fingers tapped on the back of his phone as he waited for people, more like Adrian and Poppy, to reply to his messages. His eyes wandered around the ceiling that he was currently staring up towards and his phone chimed, which caused him to grasp his phone and look at what scrolled across the screen. It was a group message from Lizzie, making sure everyone was making it okay.


From: Liz
Hey, guys! Everyone make it in okay?


Elijah started to type his own reply but others seemingly started to flow in. His phone chimed multiple times, many from the group chat but ones from Adrian and Poppy, as well. He stopped typing his reply in the group chat to read Poppy's text first and seeing that she had already settled into her apartment. Elijah did not even see a reason to reply but made note to stop by there later. Adrian's message made him raise a brow as he started to think the worst instantly, even though he's not that type of person, he really could not help this feeling though.


From: Addie â™Ĩ
bruh, i'm so nervous help plx

To: Addie â™Ĩ
What's up, bruh? Where are you? By the way, bring me a bagel with cream cheese!


Elijah sent the message with a worried expression then opened the group message to read the other messages again, finally replying to the message for himself. But raised up from the bed first and stood up, thumbs tapping at the screen as he turned heel to starting towards the exit from his apartment.


To: New York or Bust
Glad to hear from everyone! We did it, guys! lol

No, thanks, Amory. Just get here safely.


He had sent the message then walked out of his apartment then wandered around the halls now. Elijah really hoped to bump into someone but instead saw Danica and Caila on the stairs and greeted them. "Hello there, ladies." His eyes scanned towards them both, seeing that Caila was helping Danica with her belongings. "Anyway I can help?" Elijah proceeded to ask, not moving until he received an answer. "I was also thinking that we all can go out tonight and celebrate our first night in New York." Elijah mentioned but did not really ask what they thought though the tone of the question was quite obvious that he was looking for their opinions.
