Bio
"I had always been a bit of a sleepwalker - okay, maybe that's an understatement. Sometimes, I would wake up on the moist ground of the forest a few kilometers away. I don't know how many 'Missing Person Reports' my parents had filed, but eventually the police would stop reacting, suggesting I be locked up in a windowless room. My parent's took that suggestion into consideration and made sure it would be impossible for me to leave; but somehow I always got out. It was scary, waking up and having no idea where you are, but my sleepwalking wasn't an illness until that one nightmare, the nightmare that led me to murder my parents, then the sleepwalking only became apart of my illness. I had no idea what I was doing, it was like someone was controlling me, and the worst part about it? I remember everything. But I know for a fact I wasn't crazy, that is until I became schizophrenic, then my nightmares began to come to life. After plenty of fits, the days I would become unresponsive, when I'd go missing, and the constant screams that filled my room during the night, I was finally sent to the Cane Hill Asylum.

Friends/Relationships
Jessica is a friendly girl besides her disorder, and therefore will attempt in making good with her fellow patients.

Jessica kept emotion to a minimum as two tall men led her to a wide gray door with but a single tiny window to peak in from, when in truth, she was pissed, scared even. She didn't belong here, and she wasn't crazy, wasn't she? As the two men pushed her into the room, she turned around in protest of leaving her there, though was interrupted by a loud slam of the door. Jessica looked around the room. The floor was tiled, the bed sheets were a light pink which came from her old house, and the wallpaper was a bland white. Luckily, she would only have to stay in there for a few more hours before she'd be let out into the recreation room, which sat openly in the middle of the entire floor. Though a few hours would be just enough time to send her into depression mode, bringing her to realization that she would be staying here for a while.

A few hours later, a mans footsteps could be heard as they echoed through the also tiled hallways. A dark eye appeared through the small window as the owner of the footsteps turned the lock of the door and opened it. "Let's go." He said, his voice stern and hard as he took the back of her neck and took her to where a few couches, a television and some playing cards were. There were few people that sat in the room, one staring into midair, another watching the television, she figured any other patients were still in their rooms. Jessica quietly sat down on the couch next to the person watching tv. "Hello." She said quietly, her voice slightly cracking. The girl turned, examining her. "Why are you here? You seem perfectly normal" She said to her.

"I am normal."

"Only crazy people say that." The girl stared at her for a moment before returning her gaze to the tv.

Issac looked at the man that escorted him through the doors of Cane Hill Asylum. He found it amusing that the man was actually a few inches shorter than him and could easily be overpowered. But then again, the boy's hands were behind his back. He was shoved forward roughly, causing him to growl at the man. "Keep moving sir," the man informed him in a deep voice. With no other choice than to cause chaos and possibly be arrested, Issac obeyed.

He found himself being led into a room, his new room. The mattress did not have sheets on it yet. The tiles were cold against his bare feet and the walls were painfully plain. The tall blonde sat down on the bed and let the door close behind him, before realizing that the man had not removed his restraints. Frustrated, he spent the next hour trying to get the restraints off.

This did not succeed however and he was stuck staring at the walls for hours. Increasing boredom ravaged his mind. Was there anything to do here? He wasn't crazy, but he might just go mad being stuck in here all day long.

Before long though his prayers were answered and a guard came by, telling him that if he behaved, his restraints would be removed and he would be allowed to spend exactly hone hour in the day room. Issac eagerly agreed to the objectives. Besides, as long as nobody was bleeding he would be perfectly fine.

He was led out of the room into another. He'd never been so happy to see so much open space. "I won't hurt anybody," he told his escort, who reluctantly let him go.

Issac looked around and saw few people in the room. There were two cute girls in here though. Wait, this is an asylum... They're probably axe murders... Then again, a sickle isn't much better. He felt conflicted for a moment before approaching the two girls. "Are you enjoying your time here?" he asked them, sitting down on a chair.

The lights flickered on and I guessed that meant that it was time to get up. I wasn't sure what the whole process of this was but I supposed I should get change quickly just in case. So what are we going to wear today? I mean we are going to be meeting the other guests here so we better look nice!
"Teri, I don't think it really matters most of these people are too crazy to really notice."
Besides, butted in Harri, who cares what other people think. Why do we even bother making friends anyway? Harri, it's to our advantage to make friends here, if we ever want to escape we need others, Rikki reasoned. Yeah! I mean we might find someone we like too! All this talk about meeting new people was making me nervous and excited at the same time, so much so that Teri took her chance of controlling.
"Righty-o! Lets have a looky see what we'll wear today." I squeal as I bounce out of bed. I start to skip the short distance between the bed and the closet over exaggerating all my movements. I sweep the coat hooks aside closely examining each item. I decide on a floral pattern shirt and some 3/4 jeans. In the middle of putting my shirt on I hear a knock on the door.
"Are you up?" comes a muffled voice, I think it sounds like the guy from yesterday.
"Hang on one sec. I'm almost ready." I say cheerfully and smoothing out my shirt.
"Yep come on in!"
The lock clicks and the shaggy brown hair of they young man pops in.
"Well aren't you cheerier this morning. I am here to escort you to the dining hall were you shall be having breakfast. After you've finsihed I can then take you to the rec room."
I give him a big grin and bound towards him and looping my arm through his.
"Lead the way!" I glance at his name badge. "Lewis."
He seems quite surprised at my willingness and happiness. But I suppose that's expected when you first meet Harri and then get ignored by Rikki. I get simultaneous protests from them and cringe at the overwhelming noise in my head. But still this does not deter my excitement so for now I am still in control.

Before long I've been escorted to the dining hall eaten and now am making my way to the rec room. I'm so giddy that I'm jumping on the spot and Lewis keeps giving me funny looks, like he still can't believe I'm the same person. We reach the door to the rec room and he politely opens it for me. I thank him and skip inside. There aren't many people here but there is a group of 3 girls and a guy that look quite pleasant. I make my way over. I reach their little circle and they all stare up at me. Still smiling I introduce myself,
"Hi, I'm Teri!"

Anger boiled through Jessica as the girl turned back to the television. She had just hit her weak spot, but before she could react, someone took a seat in one of the near chairs. Long hair, cute face, what was so wrong with him that he had to be sent here. Jessica had wondered about the other girl, but as soon as she spoke, she already knew. Well maybe not, considering being a bitch isn’t exactly an illness.

“Are you enjoying your time here?” The boy had asked, directing the question towards them both. “I think I’m gonna go blind with all the white around here. It’s depressing; it’s like their trying to make you feel crazy as well.” Though I’m not crazy. Jessica pulled her knees to her chest and rested her chin on top as 2 girls approached and introducing themselves as Dawn and Teri. ((Lol, sounds like Tom and Jerry)) Why was Dawn dressed like that?

“Hi.” Jessica smiled. Lorlei looked at them all, examining them like she had done with Jessica. “Wow, they’re sure bringing in a whole lot of new people... I don’t know if that’s a good thing, or a bad thing...” She watched as a few more people were released into the room, it obviously being their 'break time.'

"Hey, I was hoping you guys could help my brother, Angel, and I. We're sort of betting that not everyone in this place lives in loony-ville, I was hoping you guys could tell him you haven't lost your marbles.”

Lorlei let out a quick laugh as another two approached and gave him a strange look. “Don’t be silly, if you weren’t ‘loony,’ you wouldn’t be here, which is why I'm being released next week.” She said proudly.

Jessica stared at her again. What a snob. Though she did remind her of someone.

“Angel. That’s a unique name.” She smiled at the two, jealous of the bond they held. That also reminded her of someone, but to avoid breaking down, Jessica shoved it to the back of her mind, not allowing the picture to take form in her mind.
“I’m Jessica.” She said happily and relieved that all of these people, besides Lorlei, seemed nice, but I guess she hadn’t seen their other side quite yet.

Dawn blinked slowly as the two boys Angel and Damon approached. "Marbles? I love marbles! Where are they?" She asked, her smile bright as she looked up at them before glancing at everyone else. "Does anyone want to play?" She asked, completely clueless to the expression. She uncurled herself from the couch, trying not to take up so much space as she patted the empty spots next to her. "Come sit and join the party! We don't bite, at least I hope no one does." She said with a tiny chuckle before she looked over at Damon and Angel with a tiny pout. She wished she had older siblings..

Oh wait, she did.

And they left her with her parents.

Her face darkened slightly as she clutched the pillows tight in her hands, her nails slightly tearing the fabric before suddenly, her face went blank as fast as her expression darkened, almost like a switch had been turned on. Wait, I already got to them.. "Nevermind!" She called out, mainly speaking to herself with a smile on her face once more. She criss crossed her legs, placing the slightly abused pillow in her lap as she blew her bangs back into place.

For a moment, Dawn silently took in everyone, her mind forming opinions about them. It seemed like everyone was pretty nice, but she wasn't as stupid as she acted to be. She knew everyone had to be there for a reason, the real questions were 'What?' and 'Why?'. That's where things would get interesting considering what she had done at her age. She gave a tiny smirk, Seven years bad luck. Dawn thought, her own little private joke before she began to focus on the people around her. She tilted her head in wonder as she watched everyone interact around her, they all seemed normal which made the guessing game in her head a bit more fun.

"So, who's up for marbles?"

They all kinda of just looked at me. Then one of the girls who seemed to be suffocating herself with a pillow piped up.
"Hi I'm Dawn. And this is Issac, Jessica and Lorlei." She smiled and I smiled back. She patted the spot beside her and I came over and plonked myself down. Just as she sat down two identical boys walked towards the group.
"Hey, I was hoping you guys could help my brother, Angel, and I. We're sort of betting that not everyone in this place lives in loony-ville, I was hoping you guys could tell him you haven't lost your marbles.”
My anger flared that he could so blatantly accuse us of being crazy. Who does this shithole think he is? I pressed my hands to my temple as I struggled to keep my cool and not let Harri control. Why not!? We don't need Teri showing that we're some ditzy bimbo who thinks the world is made of rainbows and ponies! Of course, Rikki was there to offer a logical argument and I was grateful for her presence. Maybe so, but we don't want you insulting everyone and starting fights left, right and center. No I think we leave Harriet in control for now. We're finally stable for the minute.
"Thank you Rikki." I whisper.
While this was going on in my head the boys and sat down and Dawn was going on about some marbles. I just caught her saying,
"So, who's up for marbles?"
Now this girl is crazy, mutters Harri.
I look up and one I see one of the boys I think it was Angel staring at me before he turned quickly to look at Dawn. Hey he's kinda cute!
"No I think he was looking at me because he saw me rubbing my temples because you guys won't be quiet." I say under my breath.

Issac couldn't help but agree with the pretty blonde. He nodded right before two others approached them. The girl in the dress reminded him of a living doll, though he wasn't entirely sure that was a good thing. The other girl, Teri greeted them as well. He smiled at the two and introduced himself quickly before the twins arrived.

At first, he thought that maybe he was going crazy. But he soon realized that they were just identical twins. What if he had an identical twin instead of his sister? Then the twin could be in here rotting instead of him. He frowned a bit and looked at the boy who spoke first. "Hey, I was hoping you guys could help my brother, Angel, and I. We're sort of betting that not everyone in this place lives in loony-ville, I was hoping you guys could tell him you haven't lost your marbles.”

He was extremely tempted to answer in a demon sounding voice, but doing so might scare the others too. Before he could even open his mouth, Dawn jumped in like an excited child. Well, they sure knew why she was here... Issac looked at her. "Come sit and join the party! We don't bite, at least I hope no one does."

Issac grinned a bit. "I can't promise that," he told them in a serious voice. "Sometimes I get hungry." Maybe being here wasn't so bad after all. He would have the opportunity to mess with the others minds so as not to lose his.

“Don’t be silly, if you weren’t ‘loony,’ you wouldn’t be here, which is why I'm being released next week.”

"You're here aren't you?" he said to them, though particularly Lorlei. "And there's always a possibility of a relapse isn't there?" He normally wasn't this pessimistice, but something about the girl just made him angry. Her whole attitude was like a poison, and sure was working.

I can't concerntrate. Lorlei and Dawn have stood up and started talking, something about playing, leaving the rest of us here. I look up and try to remember names. There's the blonde girl Jessica, Issac and the twin boys Angel and Damon -although I can't remember whose who. It's kind of an awkward moment and I'm too nervous to say anything. So I relax, bend my head and release my hold praying that it's Teri who really wants control. My head pops up again and I feel so much better. A big grin is plastered to my face and I'm not shy any more. I just want these people to be my friends.
"So Angel... Damon... Both of you. How did you guys end up here?" I glance at both of them trying to invite them into conversation. They look a little confused that I've so suddenly changed.
"Because like you said you hope not everyone here is from Loony-ville. So doesn't that make you kinda looney for being here?" I can feel myself talking too much but I'm just a little bit overwhelmed. I rarely get control so it's all very exciting! Yeah, yeah enjoy it while you can. But please don't make us look so retarded. grumbles Harri.
"Relax I won't!" I say aloud. Now they're all looking at me quizzically.
"Oops. Sorry, don't mind me." I give them a sheepish grin and indicate that they can speak.

{OOC - ICryForAFamily, can you just do the reply. I'm not sure how you would react to her talking to herself plus it would be good from your point of view =)}

Jessica glanced at Dawn, noticing the dark expression crossing her face, and then being replaced with a smile a moment later. "So, who's up for marbles?" She had said. Jessica smiled not really knowing what to say, she was getting a little anxious sitting there with a bunch of people who were obviously sent to, not one of the most friendliest asylums, out there. Where there people she should look out for? Why did that girl keep talking to herself? I mean, Jessica did occasionally see things, though the hallucinations did seem to light up a bit at the moment, but she would still never talk back so casually like that. The doctors should at least have given a more specific warning. Jessica looked back at Issac as he spoke, relieved she wouldn’t have to answer. It didn’t look like Dawn would have taken no for an answer though, anyways.

Hungry? Jessica’s eyes widened a little. Slightly creepy... Especially since she couldn’t tell whether he was being serious or not.
"I-its nice to meet you, I'm Angel." Jessica smiled as Angel introduced himself again.


Lorlei had turned back to the tv, hardly listening to what these new people were saying, though she did catch little bits of it. Something about a relapse, which she wouldn’t have to worry about. Something about biting, oh god, what freaks! And then, finally, something about a crazy bitch and being psycho. Lorlei shot her icy glare towards all of them. No pity. These people deserved whatever they had, and all they were to her was a distraction, and that's what they were trying to do: distract her from her recovery. Lorlei wouldn't let that happen though. She would push and shove and throw whatever cruel words she knew in her crooked little mind at them. She would never befriend a psychotic, maybe she could even play with them.

"So, what is it? Are you crazy in the head? Talking to yourselves maybe?" Dawn asked then pulling her up into a stand. Lorlei’s lips tightened, her nose almost flaring. Whether she was kidding or not, she didn’t care, Lorlei was a bit of a hot head to begin with before her problems, but it wasn’t her fault. Along with probably a few others, Lorlei also had family problems, and all she ever did was constantly remind herself about it. Lorlei grabbed her hand away from Dawn’s and turned around, leading herself as far away from them as she could


Jessica watched as Lorlei stormed away, sitting herself on one of the other couches at the opposite side of the room. She turned her gaze back to Dawn, waiting to see her reaction.

"That girl breaking out, is she a friend of yours?" She looked at Damon as he whispered to them. Jessica giggled quiet enough so it wouldn’t travel out of the circle. “I’d be surprised if she had any friends outside of this place.” She whispered.


“There will be 30 minutes until lunch to those of you who do not know. You will be eating in the cafeteria just across the hall.” A faded announcement came from a small speaker placed on the wall.

((Woo, slightly unorganized, my apologies I hadn't gotten much sleep last night, but that's okay ICryForAFamily! The minimum posting was 3 posts per week anyways. :) ))

It seemed that it was down to only being the twins, jessica and myself. The boy Angel seemed similar to me except he was a lot more paranoid and seemed to have his mother in his head. At least I just had myself. Although it was really Damon that I was more nervous about although at the same time he excited me. Why would he be here? Of course curiosity got the better of me.
"And what about you Damon? Why are you here. It can't just because you wanted to be here for your brother. So what did you do?" I tilted my head, trying to decipher what he could have done. He probably was admitted for being an asshole. I would want him out of society too if it were my choice. Harri, there are worse things than being an asshole. He could have been violent like yourself in which case I'm sure you too would get along splendidly. Shut the hell up Rikki.
"Shh you guys. Let him answer the question." I looked back up at him waiting for an answer.

Jessica watched as Dawn and Issac left a few minutes early to eat, and then back to the others still remaining. "And what about you Damon? Why are you here. It can't just because you wanted to be here for your brother. So what did you do?” Teri had said then whispering to herself something Jessica couldn’t recall. Strange. But really, what is strange anymore? Jessica waited for Damon to answer, curious as to what he would say.

A few minutes later, Jessica headed into the cafeteria and grabbed a tray full of food. She overheard the squeaky sound of Lorlei’s voice trying to convince one of the patients to let her go in front of them. The guy obviously let her go without a problem, though the male seemed barely present in his own body. Jessica frowned, she wasn’t normally this goody goody, but Lorlei wasn’t exactly in her good books so far. “How could you take advantage of someone like that? You know, one day someone’s going to give it to you, and I don’t mean their spot in line.” She snarled, annoyance burning through her eyes.

Lorlei simply looked at her, a loud laugh escaping her mouth. “You think any of them...” She gestured to everyone in the room. “...Will be able to do that? You do, then you really are crazy.” She smirked again and walked off, finding her place at an empty table where she could pick at her food. Jessica quickly wiped the anger off her face and followed behind Lorlei. She slapped her tray of food lightly onto the table, jamming her chocolate cake into Lorlei’s face, along with the rest of the food on her plate. Jessica took a step back and looked at Lorlei as if she were a painting she had just completely. “Maybe, maybe not, but at least I know I can.” She smiled again and began walking off, but was soon stopped by a bitten-into-apple that came flying into the back of her head. Anger filled Jessica’s face again, and one of the more sane ones yelled out. “FOOOD FIGHTTT.” And soon the room was being drowned in flying food. Some people joined in, some just sat there, while others sat underneath the table in true fear.

Jessica turned and ran out of the cafeteria and sitting against the wall outside of it as 4 large men ran past in attempt to put the food fight to a halt.

Bad idea, Jess. She thought to herself.

Issac listened carefully as Dawn spoke. Well, they both knew why she was here. She was definitely, dangerously insane. But she had a reason for killing her parents, just like he somewhat had a reason for killing the dog. The way she laughed reminded him of a child, as if she were still seven years old. Perhaps that was why she was dressed like a little doll, because she still saw herself as that? Maybe she wasn't aware of all the time that had passed since she was seven.

He turned at the sound of someone yelling "food fight!" He looked at Dawn, then at the other patients as they stood and began to throw things at each other. He could just make out Jessica's blonde hair as she dashed into the hall, away from the fight.

He decided that he would let the employees take care of this. There was no use in getting into trouble on the first day. Unless somebody gave him a sickle, he was staying right where he was. A cup of orange juice hit him and soaked his upper body. He frowned and considered leaving.
