Don't Trust Your Neighbor

Don't Trust Your Neighbor

0 INK

In a corrupt dictatorship, there is something that gets abused the most: Trust. If you don't support the regime, anyone could report you. At Sunnyside Apartments, while some can trust, others are paranoid.

Introduction

In a corrupt dictatorship, the absolute ruler named Anman Avrulia keeps an iron fist regime, incarcerating political opponents and dissidents. Life is hard in the capital which is named after him. People do not live in the best conditions, food is often rationed, TV channels must be approved by the regime, internet is massively censored if you even are able to use it. Probably the worst part is that you cannot talk openly to anyone, not even your neighbor because who knows if they will snitch. The only hope you can have is that the police is corrupt enough to the point where you can bribe your way out of detention. The lack of trust and the abuse of the remnants of it leaves many people paranoid and having to act they loyalty to the regime just to stay out of trouble.

Welcome to Sunnyside Apartments, a place with a misleading name as the building is grey and the apartments are small. While the plumbing works better than many other buildings, the place is still depressing for many of its residents. Various people live here: from bureaucrats to the umemployed. Due to the small size of the apartments here, most tenants are single and childless. Clotheslines hang from one side of the courtyard to the other. Many tenants wash their clothes by hand and home craftsmen can be seen in the courtyard carving figurines from wood. Most tenants take a bicycle, a scooter or walk to get somewhere. The air has a slight stink from the pollution of the nearby industrial park. The manager saved a larger apartment as a community center in hopes of battling the common depression. The building itself is five stories high and has fourty apartments of which half of them are currently in use.

This is a mostly character driven roleplay and possible conflicts and arcs can be discussed in the OOC section.

It was a sunny morning in the city. However the sunrays didn't wake people up, but rather the blaring of the national anthem over speakers throughout the city. "Damn regime and their noise pollution." Kesa said as she woke up. She opened up the window and lit a cigarette. With the lit cigarette in her mouth, she walked over to her drawer and grabbed three throwing knives. She used them for practice on a wooden dart board. Everytime she threw one, it landed fairly close to the center.

After knifethrowing practice, Kesa did her routine workout: 150 sit-ups, 200 pushups and some bench pressing. Afterwards she went to her fridge and grabbed some eggs and bacon and made breakfast. After breakfast, she got dressed, putting on her white dress shirt, a skirt and her lace choker. Once she left the apartment, she had to change her grimasse to a smile to give everybody the impression that there is nothing odd about her such as the fact that she had gotten away with crimes and was in prison before only to bribe her way out.

An old lady greeted Kesa in the courtyard with a forced smile. Kesa knew the old woman was suffering under the system and that the old woman feared that if she showed it that the special police would come to take her away. Speaking of the devil, the special police passed the courtyard on their usual patrol. One of the men nodded to the two women in the courtyard. On the inside, Kesa thought with a bad natured tsk while on the outside she nodded back. Kesa would have found it convinient if someone tried to assassinate the dictator or better yet if she could become the next one, just to get rid of the flaws of the current one and allow at least economic freedom to bring welfare and keep citizens satisfied.

Biro was already awake when he heard the sweet music play. While it did he sang completely out of tune. "In this cell I slip into insanity, slip into insanity, slip into insanity. In this cell I slip into insanity, I think I'm going crazy." The song made him smile. It was breakfast time. He looked into the fridge. There were a few options. He grabbed a block of cheese. After inspecting it for a bit He took a bite out of it. "Mmmmm..... cheddar."

Putting on his clothes with the cheese in his mouth proved to be difficult but it was done. He patted his cat and grabbed his gun and walked to the lab it was one of those days. It was a good day. He had just finished the cheese when he walked into the lab. Everyone looked at him and stared. He stared back "The fuck you want? Get back to work or...." he makes a biting motion and points to his ear. One scientist looks at him "Sir? You have no pants."

Biro looked down to see he didn't. He then looked back up to the guy. "So what, its a good day." The scientist points to a sign that says "Biro you need to keep your clothes on in the lab". Biro smiled. "Awww. You kept it there for me?" He then cursed "For got my notes." he says walking out. Then the scientist realizes he had a gun. Back at the apartment he was going threw some books and pulled out his notes. He seen a rat go by. He attempted shooting it with his full auto-uzi then shouted "Sorry to whom ever the rounds hit this time. Was shooting Bob. Or at him."

He was passing the courtyard and seen a woman walking around giving everybody a weird look. "Ugh tourists."

Karin woke up when the national anthem was playing over the speakers in the city. She hopped out of bed and grabbed her school uniform on her wooden drawer which she had folded neatly the previous day. She began to put on her school uniform and after that task was accomplished she went over to the small fridge and opened it up. Inside she grabbed a egg and grabbed a slice of bread and made breakfast. After eating she left her apartment building and began to head to school.

On her way to school Karin walked through the apartments courtyard. As she walked she saw a few people in uniform walking by and greeted them with a smile. As she continued to walk she saw a old lady with a woman and waved at them as she continued to walk.

"It seems you are a bit nervous. Do you feel uncomfortable when I am around?" Kesa asked the woman. The woman then hastily replied. "No! No! It is nothing. I am always like that." "Well then I am off!" Kesa said not being worried about the shots fired earlier. Kesa noticed the old man and the girl. She smiled to them and then thought: Stupid old man loyalist. Rumors say that he is dangerous and crazy. I guess that makes us two. Kesa then wandered over to the girl wearing a school uniform and said: "Hello, do you mind if I walk with you since we have the same destination? By the way, if I hadn't introduced myself before, my name is Kesa Evrumio. I am a language teacher at your school and in private. Be careful around that old guy, he's strange and dangerous. I may have been sort of like that back in the day, just more controlled. But if he causes trouble, just call me."

Karin stopped as she saw the woman walking towards her. As the woman asked her if she could walk with her and told her that she was a teacher at her school. She smiled and replied in a cheerful voice, "sure you can miss Kesa, I don't mind if you tag along with me." Although when her teacher warned her about a dangerous old man she made sure to keep a mental note in her mind. "Well then let's get a move on, we don't want to be late for school...oh and by the way my name is Karin Maracko nice to meet you!" She said looking at her teacher before she spun around and began to walk.

I'm good with starting.

Re: Don't Trust Your Neighbor

So do you guys want to start?

Re: Don't Trust Your Neighbor

For those who play teenagers: Schools generally have uniforms. For girls: A blouse with a blue neckerchief tied together below the collar and a blue knee-length skirt. Boys: A short sleeved white buttoned shirt and black pants. For youth organizations there is the same dress code, just with a blue tie for boys.
