Description

SODA ALEKS

Image


Image
Age| Nineteen


Role| Girl D

Hair| Blue
Height| Five foot
Weight| One hundred and three pounds.

Eyes| Lightish Brown

Personality| Her primary mode of living is focused internally, where she deals with things rationally and logically. Her secondary mode is external, where she take things in via her five senses in a literal, concrete fashion. She has a compelling drive to understand the way things work. Good at logical analysis, she likes to use it on practical concerns. Typically having strong powers of reasoning, although she's not interested in theories or concepts unless she can see a practical application. She likes to take things apart and see the way they work.

Soda is fiercely independent, needing to have the space to make her own decisions about her next step. She does not believe in or follow rules and regulations, as this would prohibit her ability to "do her own thing". Her sense of adventure and desire for constant action makes her prone to becoming bored rather quickly. Although she does not respect the rules of the "System", she follows her own rules and guidelines for behavior faithfully. She will not take part in something which violates her personal laws.

She likes and needs to spend time alone, because this is when she can sort things out in their minds most clearly. She absorbs large quantities of impersonal facts from the external world, and sort through those facts, making judgments, when she is alone. Soda is an action-oriented person. She likes to be up and about, doing thing, which means she won't sit behind a desk all day and do long-range planning. Adaptable and spontaneous, she responds to what is immediately before her. She usually has strong technical skills, and can be as effective technical leaders.

She does not pay attention to her own feelings, and even distrust them and try to ignore them, because she has difficulty distinguishing between emotional reactions and value judgments. This may be a problem area for her.

When over-stressed, she may exhibit rash emotional outbursts of anger, or on the other extreme may be overwhelmed by emotions and feelings which she feels compelled to share with people (often inappropriately). When down on herself she will foray into the world of value judgments - a place which is not natural for the her - and judge herself by the inability to perform some task. Soda will then approach the task in a grim emotional state, expecting the worst.

History| Soda grew up in an orphanage, never knowing her mother or father. Being one of the youngest there, she was the one whom everyone picked on. Once she got older, around nine or ten, she began to try and fight back, when she realized she could fight back. But it didn't turn out well. Things got worse for her, a lot worse. One of the older boys, she thinks he was around sixteen or seventeen, caught her sneaking out late at night. This was when she was fourteen, this was attempt number one at running away. They were both in the alleyway, and he was merciless. The older boy beat her up, took the money she'd saved up(stolen) to run away, and when she thought that maybe she would get out of this okay, he raped her.

It continued for months. He would blackmail her, make her do things she didn't want to, sometimes with him, sometimes with his friends. At one point she thought she was pregnant, having missed something important for almost two months, and she went to a doctor. It was then they told her she couldn't have children. They wanted to question her about it, but it was that night she ran away.

Life on the streets was bad for her too, but not as bad. For almost a year she lived in alleys and slept in buses. Though one day she met a counselor woman, she was older. The lady helped her get registered with the government as a independent adult, and as if by a miracle she got plopped down in an apartment. No boys allowed though, they check on her at random times of the month. Every month she gets a check for about a hundred and fifty dollars for food and other necessities.

After years of saving up, she finally had enough for her trip to France.

So begins...

By the time the plane finally started boarding the commercial class people, Jackson had almost finished his book. Shakespeare's Hamlet, a lovely book, he'd read it many times before. Usually he only read books once or twice, three times if he really liked the material or couldn't get his hands on another book at that moment. But Shakespeare was definitely one of those people who wrote amazing things, and it truly did catch Jack's attention. Heck, every time he read the book he learned something new about it. Truly fantastic, at least in his mind. But his family usually just looked at him like he was crazy. There was no doubt that his traveling buddy, Ronnie, probably thought that he was a nerd. None of this bothered him though, because he didn't mind being "crazy" or being a "nerd". He liked reading, what was so bad about that? Unlike the other idiot children at the college he attended, they would amount to nothing if they didn't step up.

Abandoning the previous thoughts, he gathered up his belongings and stood up. "C'mon Ronnie, I think they just called us." With a smile, he carefully placed his book in the carry on and threw the bag over his shoulder. "By the way, I call the window seat." Before his friend could protest, Jackson began towards the flight attendant. She was younger, probably under thirty, which would make his job all the more easier. "I'm sorry ma'am, would you mind letting my friend and I on before the others?" Though she seemed to be a bit taken with his charming grin, she still looked as if she was going to decline. Quickly he said, "See, my friend isn't the best on planes," he easily lied. "And I was hoping the longer he was on, the more comfortable he'd get." As if the excuse was actually a good reason to let them on, she allowed them entrance. Sitting himself a 22C, he retrieved his book again.



That morning, a lot of things happened. Soda had forgotten to turn her phone off vibrate, so she didn't wake up until it had vibrated so much that it fell off of the dresser and into the garbage, creating a long banging noise that she mistook for a gun shot. Sitting up quickly, she immediately assessed herself for wounds, and then after finding nothing, turned her attention to the room around her. It was still the unorganized mess that it always was, and she quickly figured out that it was just her phone that had caused her to be so frightened. After retrieving the device from the garbage, she kicked her blankets off and stomped over to the bathroom. Today was not going to be a good day, she had work, meaning that idiot was probably going to try and get her to go out with him again. If only Europe could come sooner, but the trip was tomorrow...

The thought made her pause, and she quickly backtracked to her bed and snatched the phone up. Eyes gone wide, she stared at the screen just as it began buzzing again and she dropped it back to the bed. Today was the day!, and she was going to be late. With a speed that she didn't know she could possess so early in the morning, she quickly traded her sleeping clothes for her airplane clothes, black jeans and a loose, grey American Eagle top with a black wolf on the front. It was thin enough material that she wouldn't be hot, but it also had longer sleeves so in case her hands got cold she could wrap them up. Gloves were simply overrated.

Stuffing most of her clothes in a bag, and then the rest of her electronics in another bag, she dashed downstairs. The first thing she got was all her candy. Who didn't bring candy on a plane trip? And the next was a water bottle, two Tylenol's, and an apple. Luckily there was someone getting out of a cab right in front of her apartment, and she quickly jumped on the chance to steal the vehicle before someone else could. "Airport please, quickly." It seemed luck was on her side yet again, because there was very little traffic and the driver was kind enough to speed a tad bit. Apparently her nervousness was showing, though it didn't surprise her much.

Soda arrived just as the attendant was about to close the door. "Please, please let me in.", she begged as the flight attendant asked to see her papers. After fishing them out of the bag, the lady let her inside with a slight scowl. Rushing down the ramp, she quickly boarded the plane and sat in her assigned seat, 24C, right next to the isle. And a boy?

Boarding the plane was no walk in the park. First trouble, was actually getting on the plane itself. The rush of people in the airport only made it harder for Alli to navigate her way. It wasn't easy at all. Especially with Nat close to hyperventilating for her fear of flying. "Haha, it'll be alright." Alli would say from time to time while laying a comforting hand on Nat's shoulder. Once on the plane, Alli was seated right behind Willow and Nat, who were sitting together.

Nat, however, was not looking good. Do I have to repeat that everything will be fine a hundred times? Oh well, it's Nat's first time flying, got to cut the girl some slack. But Nat was giving of a rather funny face. Oh shoot, I know that face. Alli looked away as she heard the nearby Nat puke. Then she heard Willow giggle lightly. This started to make Alli laugh heartily. Yes, this will be a great trip. I can finally ease the stress I have been carrying a while now.
Alli observed her surroundings. A few seats up it was hard not to notice a girl with bright blue hair. Wish I was crazy enough to try that color, but it looks good on her. "China.... Can you believe it?! This is going to be a trip to remember... just you wait... It's going to be the trip of a life time..." Willow said aloud, interrupting Alli's thoughts. She leaned in to answer.

"Of course it'll be a trip of a lifetime! I'm looking forward to the food, the sights, the food, the culture and hey...did I mention food?" Alli gave a playful wink. "The hardest part about this trip is getting through the flight, because it's going to be soooo boring! Come one, you guys are asking me to sit down for hours doing nothing, not my kinda thing." She let out a fake yawn. "This boredom better be worth it in the end." Alli tried to stretch from where she was sitting, but the airplane seats were doing what they do best...being an uncomfortable pain in the ass. Why can't they design better chairs? Jeez. Alli glanced over at a flight attendant, who was wheeling in champagne in a room ahead of them. Somebody's lucky in first class. She thought dryly.

In a few moments all the passengers will be seated and they could finally take off. You can do this Alli. She said while brushing her red hair with her hand. Boredom will not exceed you. She then noticed she had no one seated next to her. What a convenience, looks like I have no poor soul to annoy for the trip so far. Oh well. Alli took a rubber band out of her purse and gave a half smirk. Rubber bands, a pranksters best friend. Glad I brought a few for the trip. Maybe I won't die of boredom. She gave another smirk and twirled the rubber band in her hand.

Liam had already spent his morning in a plane. He came from the mountains of Colorado, and had to take a flight starting at four AM just to get to the connecting flight here, which is another unspeakable amount of hours. As such, his appearance was a little ragged, with messy blonde hair that he did his best to comb out with his fingers. His blue-gray tee shirt had a small Coca-Cola stain from a mishap at breakfast with Marc. At least the coke did it's job, he thought. I'm awake.

He'd spent most of the morning trying to sleep, so navigating this new airport to find the food court was an adventure through barely open eyes. He'd gotten a nap out of it, but it wasn't much. After eating and drinking something caffeinated, he had no trouble making it to the next gate. He sat down and checked over his carry-on bag, making sure everything was still there. It wasn't much, just enough to get them through the hotel for a night before they started their hiking trip. Almost all of his hiking gear and clothes (mostly snow gear and various weather clothes) and living utensils were in his suitcase, below the plane.

Liam boarded the plane less like a zombie this time around, shuffling through the line with his backpack in hand. He chose a middle seat, leaving the window seat to Marc if he wanted to take it. Liam was personally a fan of just taking his assigned seat, but he knew some passengers shifted around for their own enjoyment. He hadn't been sitting for very long, probably fifteen minutes, when a girl with vibrant blue hair came scrambling down the aisle to take a seat near him. She seemed to be in a rush. Maybe airplanes stressed her or something. Liam didn't like to see people stressed, as he knew the feeling far too well. He pulled out a bag of trail mix from his backpack and opened it up. He took a few pieces for himself and then offered it to her, shyly saying, "Do you want some? I don't know, sometimes I feel better once I've eaten some food I guess..." He hoped she wouldn't look at him funny for his nice gesture. It happened more than he'd like to believe or admit.

Marc rubbed the right side of his face with his hand and mumbled something intelligible as he followed Liam through the airport, almost in a daze. After a couple of a false starts due to repeated yawning he shook his head and tried again, saying that he'd catch him up at the plane. After finding a restroom in order to freshen up somewhat he stared at his reflection in the mirror and came to the conclusion that the journey to this stop over seemed to have hit Liam as hard as it him, going from how ragged they both looked. He splashed a few handfuls of water over his face, lightly rubbing the couple of days stubble before stifling yet another yawn. They were beginning to get on his nerves.

He'd visited the food court and grabbed a couple of bacon sandwiches to settle his stomach after the flight, which he washed down with a bottle of coke. After letting it settle slightly he made his way towards the plane, lightly flipping a coin as he navigated through the security checks and gate on the way. "Surely I'm already on the checked side, why is there always additional ones..." he muttered after yet another en route to the plane.

Just before crossing the gangway onto the plane he popped into a nearby shop (which was conveniently ever so slightly more expensive than previously) and purchased a couple of bottles of water and one of coke for the rather longer flight. Luckily it contained a meal, even if it was likely be a horrible meal it was better than nothing. He showed the attendant his pass and boarded the plane, shrugging his backpack onto his shoulder again as he did.

He carefully made his way up the asle towards his seat and half smirked, half rolled his eyes as he saw he'd have to uproot Liam and some blue haired lass to get to his seat. "Hey mate, settled in eh?" he joked and lent against the seat nearby before turning to the girl "Excuse me but can I get past to the seat?" He thanked her as he shuffled past and made himself comfortable as he stowed his bag under the seat. "See you in a few hours." He said, nodding at Liam as he ran his fingers through his hair before pulling his Indiana Jones-esque hat down over his eyes and leaning back into the chair.

Alli looked at Ronnie with appreciation in her eyes for saving her. She couldn't speak for she was still choking back water. I was so close to death...but here I am.After coughing a few times, she finally noticed both Nat and Willow where on the raft as well. Thank God, they are alive! Even after all she's been through, she was able to crack upon a small smile. "Can't get rid of me that easily." Her voice croaked as she let out another cough. Her bloodshot eyes looked around herself to see their were other teens who had survived as well. The same blue haired girl I saw before! She also noticed three other new guys were on the boat as well. Now, is a good time for a nap... And she fell unconscious, her tired body uncaring for the current event.

Many hours late she awoke to Willow slamming against her. "What happened?" She mumbled still half asleep. The sound of Willow screaming "Land!" made Alli jolt upright. "Where?!" but her eyes were soon met with the answer to her question. An island, with a huge beach! She jumped out of the boat and keeled, feeling the sand as to see if she was dreaming. "Whoa, this is the real deal..." Her attention was then caught by a hermit crab crawling in the sand. A Dardanus calidus, but this one is a little larger then normal. Plus its abdomen seems to be protected by a pointed shell, rather then a rounded one. The hermit crab fascinated her so much she nearly forgot of her current situation. Stupid Alli! This is not a petting zoo. My friends are probably worried on what to do now.

"It'll be alright, girls." She said confronting her best friends. "We may or may not be near civilization, but it shouldn't be too hard to find food and shelter around here. Water most importantly." Alli didn't have anything except her purse filled with rubber bands and entertainment items. Nothing of use in there. Alli sighed. "What do you say we start looking around the island? Maybe someone does live here, or maybe we can at least find a stream of fresh water. I'll see if I can get the other teens to join."

Ronnie was one of the first guys to walk out of the boat, and Alli took this moment to thank him. "About earlier, thank you for saving my life. I'm Alli." She held out a hand. "You are?" She wanted to at least know the name of the guy who saved her. Plus he probably knew some of the others and it'll be easier to tell them her idea.

When the water had burst in through the flaps of the raft he'd jerked awake suddenly due to being the other closest to it. But before he could do anything he saw the girl on the other side had already go up and fastened it shut. He smiled and muttered a thanks before nodding off again. The next he knew was that the girl had pulled open the flaps and was calling out something about land nearby. What really woke him up was the thumb of the raft beaching itself on said land.

He pulled himself up and through the flaps, jumping down onto the sand of the beach. "Well its not Everest... mores the pity." He repositioned his hat to sheild his eyes better from the sun, before walking a little further up the beach to a small outcrop of rocks with trees that had grown over them to form a shaded area with protection from the jungle behind. He put his rucksack down and took off his jacket, placing it next to it.

"Right, water and food." He rubbed his hands together and looked at the area around them.
