Personality:
{Trait, Trait, Trait, Trait}
Cora has always been a very persistent person. She will sometimes push to far but she tries to keep it at a bare minimum since she doesn’t want to ruin friendships or anything. She is quite optimistic also. She likes to think that even though her life is really crappy now. It might get better and she hopes that moving with the other three to a house will actually be a good thing. She can sometimes be a bit competitive though and she never can tell if that is a good or bad thing. She is extremely defensive of people she loves or cares for. She is also quite determined, because when she sets her mind to something she won’t change her mind one bit.

History:
Cora was born to two happy parents. Her mother was a stay-at-home mother and her father being a business man in law. She was quite close to her mother. Enjoying all the sites and sounds her mother did. She would always help her mother cook dinner. And do different activities regarding house hold things. When she was at the age of three her mother gave birth to her baby brother Collin. Her family was always together and close. It was odd and stuff but she liked it. Her family didn’t have many friends. And she didn’t have any other family members alive so it wasn’t like they had lots to do with other people.

In school she did good but she had picked up different traits that wouldn’t be good into a career. She loved her life and she was always very optimistic believing when something was bad it would get better. Collin her brother was always very good and they got along well. There was never a time they would fight. People in school thought it was odd when her mother picked her up from school and then she would give her brother a hug or something close like that. She did have tiny fights about useless things but she ended up forgiving him or the same went for Collin.

She was always fairly closer with her mother then with her father She still did her best and was close with both of them.

About six months ago her parents and brother and her were going to the movies and they were driving home and they were busy chatting and having fun doing their car games that they played. Her father ended up driving into a truck. The impact hit the car and had crushed her parents and brother. She woke up three weeks later in the hospital the only one alive. She was devastated. In the will they had no one stated to take care of the kids if something happened to them. So Cora was sent to a local orphanage. She kept telling herself that her family was in a better place and there was a reason this had all happened.

She made friends quickly and had grown to enjoy her stay there. It was different but she knew something good was going to come out of all of this. She heard that there was an opportunity to go to Pennsylvania and live with a family. She smiled and agreed to be good. The person in charge of the orphanage said that she thought it was perfect for Cora to go there. Cora thinks it was she was getting on the owners nerves. So when she heard three others were tagging along she couldn’t wait to see the adventures that was ahead.

Celeste couldn't be more excited than she was currently at the moment. She was running around the room, making sure that she wasn't forgetting anything. Toothrbrush, clothes, pillow, camera, photo album, flash drive.. The list continued on and on as she went through her room. She seemed to have everything. Finally she closed her suitcase and fastened the locks. Her suitcase was a bit old school and rusty, but that was only because she has never used it before now. She was on her way to Pennsylvania. The current grin on Celeste's face grew wider and she mentally jumped up and down. This was very surreal and she couldn't believe it was happening. The blonde stood before the mirror and was working her fingers through her hair. The camera danging around her neck kept catching her eye. A picture was definitely needed. This was a turning point in the orphans life. Turning it on and adjusting the settings, she posed before the mirror. She snapped a couple of photos. Celeste would edit them later.

Bus is here! Celeste giggled and grabbed her bag. It fell off the bed with a thud, taking the small freshman down with it. It was much heavier than she thought it would be. Letting go of the suitcase, she stood up and fixed herself. The blonde grabbed hold of the case again and dragged it out of the room. She didn't even look back. Celeste was entering a new life and her days as an orphan were over. She couldn't wait to meet her siblings. She got outside and laid eyes on the tour bus. "It's amazing!" The overjoyed blonde exclaimed. Celeste managed to tote herself and the suitcase onto the bus and she examined it. It was lovely. But she was the first one. This gave her some time she pick the perfect seat for introductions. Celeste ran all the way to the back to sit down. "No." She moved to the middle. "No." Then she went to the front. "Perfect!"

After a while her new siblings stepped on the bus and she had to contain her joy. The blonde didn't want to scare them just yet. Finally everyone settled and sat down. Celeste couldn't be quiet any longer. Looking at the girls she waved at them with both hands. "Hi! I'm Celeste!" Her smile was wide and her eyes bright. Hopefully they liked her.

Adriana sighed as she zipped up her third and final suitcase. She hated everything about the orphanage and had dreamed of leaving it for years, but she had finally grown use to living in upstate New York, so suddenly being uprooted from the life she had managed to carve out for herself in her last year at the orphanage was frustrating - to say the least, especially since if it wasn't for the fact she was still on her last year of HS, she'd legally be able to leave of her free will.

"Adriana dear, are you ready?" a woman called out from down the hall. Instead of responding however Adriana would slowly make her way over to an old full length mirror and fiddle with her hair as she stared at her outfit. Showing off her bare back and long legs Adriana had chosen a baggy teal open-back tank, bleached denim shorts with studded pockets, and black studded combat boots to wear on her journey. The chill in the air outside was of little concern to her, the hoodie tied around her waist would suffice if she became too cold.
"Ugh, fuck it!" the impatient teen spat, before giving up on her attempt at a high ponytail an instead letting her hair fall straight.
"Adriana?"
The voice of the woman calling her name was now closer than it was before, causing Adriana to sigh...there was no more delaying her departure. After throwing her phone and cigs in her over-sized Hello Kitty tote Adriana would gather her suitcases and make her way out of her bedroom door - just in time to nearly run into the worker who had been calling her name.
"Oh there you are! Ready to go?"
Instead of answering Adriana simply rolled her eyes and pushed past the woman before making her way outside.



"Holy shit, what is this, a tour bus?"
Adriana would come to a complete stop just to stare at the massive bus in front of her, a mixture of confusion and shock painted all over her face.
"Watch your mouth young lady! And yes, this is what your new family chose to pick you four girls up in, now here, let me help you get on board."
"Yeah, no, I got it.......thanks."
Stubborn as always Adriana loaded her own suitcases onto the bottom of the bus before boarding with her tote. From what the woman said Adriana assumed she wasn't the only one leaving the orphanage, but she apparently was only the second to board.
"For real? You spent all that time yelling for me and I'm just the second one here? Nice."
Adriana pulled out her cigs after sitting down and started to dig through her bag for a lighter, but before she could find it the woman came over and yanked the pack of cigarettes out of her hand.
"I don't think so, not on here.....show some respect for such a lovely vehicle, and wait here while i go and get the others - understood?"
"Psh, and if i say no?"
The woman shook her head at the sarcastic comment before leaving the bus to gather the others.

Adriana kicked the chair in frustration before sighing and relaxing into her seat. She had seen enough tour buses in her life, and even sat in one before - briefly - when a favorite band of hers was in town, but it was surely the first time she'd be driven somewhere in one. So as she waited for the other girls to board she'd walk around and take in her surroundings, amused by the amount of pricey amenities.
After several minutes she'd sit back down again and begin to dig through her bag for her phone and ear plugs - two of her most favorite, and envied, possessions. Having a job, even if it was at Albany's backwoods version of Hooters, had it's perks, such as expendable income, which afforded her things others in the orphanage didn't have.


....


More interested in her phone's gaming apps Adriana would pay little attention to the girls who eventually boarded after her, she just wanted to get on the road already. However after everyone was boarded the bubbly blonde to her left excitedly introduced herself to everyone, causing Adriana to pay attention.
"Gee you're happy...it's like someone shot sugar, spice, and everything nice right into your ass."
She couldn't help but laugh at her own crude remark as she slid her phone into her short's pocket. "No, seriously though, I'm Adriana, and I'm freaking starving. Hey Driver...."

Adriana would stand up and make her way to the front of the bus, where she'd lean over and paste a huge fake smile on her face. "Mind if we stop at Mickey Dees, I'm staving!"
"No can do, no stops on the way, now please sit back down."
"Awh come on, pretty pleaseeee, I'll buy you an apple pie!?"
Batting her eyes and pouting her lip had no effect on the driver, and he'd simply repeat his previous statement - with more emphasizes on the request to sit down.

A disappointed Adriana would make her way back to her seat and flounce down before pulling her phone back out of her pocket. "This is seriously going to be a long ride." she'd mutter, before plugging her earphones in and opening up YouTube on her phone.

Cora was getting ready for the trip that would change the life she had learned now to adjust to. No it wasn't no trip with mom and dad and the bro but she was used to it now. She believed it was odd to be okay like this. It was only so many months ago shouldn't she still be heart broken and in tears? She was packing her things that she had gathered over time. She was putting her picture album, picture frame, shoes, shirts, jeans, camera, books and laptop. She had quite a few possessions from the house still she had taken with her. She looked around the room she had called home for the past 6 months was no longer hers. But it would soon go to a girl or a boy who had lost his or her family in some unfortunate event.

She stuffed it all in the suit case and sat on it closing the zipper and jumping down. She pulled the suit case down and walked out the room closing the old brown wooden door behind her. As she walked through the halls toward the bus that someone yelled was here she knew this most likely would be the last time she would ever walk these halls. It made her wonder the different adventures that lay ahead. As she walked her heel boots clomped. It had went with her tan pants, blue top and leather jacket that she was wearing. She said goodbye to the few kids she had played with sometimes.

She walked out the door to the bus and hopped in. She didn't see any spots that she liked and since she saw that the one front seat was taken she sat behind that girl. She was normally a person that sat in front but she was cool with any really. She grabbed out a book from her bag and looked at the girl in front of her that had shouted something. She seemed a bit excited and Cora was happy that some people were happy. She decided to speak in her answer instead of leaving her hang.

"Hi, I'm Cora. Nice to meet you Celeste."

Bridgeway Tour Bus || City Unspecified || Time Unknown

Madeline watched curiously as the oldest girl - Adriana, she said her name was - practically begged the driver to stop at some fast food joint. The driver firmly refused and the pissed off brunette slumped back into her seat. Madeline looked around, and upon noticing the younger blonde watching her, realized that she still hadn't given her name. "Um, I'm Madeline." Maddie didn't even know if anyone heard her. Not that she really cared all that much as it was.

Madeline took a mental note of the other girls' names: the cheerful blonde girl was Celeste. She and the redhead, Cora, seemed like they were pretty nice. Adriana was the brunette, and she...well, Madeline didn't quite know what to think of her. She seemed a bit to angry, but then again, are you supposed to be excited about being an orphan? It definitely wasn't the best experience in the world. Even so, Celeste seemed to be enjoying herself.

Looking back down at her book, Madeline decided to spend the rest of the ride reading. She heard some conversation around her. She could also hear the faint beat of music coming from where Adriana was sitting. Madeline didn't have much experience with music, aside from the piano lessons she'd taken as a child. In fact, Maddie didn't have much experience with...pretty much anything. Not with love, not with school, not even with the simple pleasures like texting your bestie at midnight. Maddie had never even used a cell phone before.

Indeed, being an orphan had it's downsides. Most of the things about being an orphan were downsides. One of the few perks was that there wasn't really anyone to let you down. If you didn't have anyone you were close to, who was there disappointed in?

Then again, was that even a perk at all?

Adrianna was an interesting creature. Celeste didn't understand the sugar, spice and everything nice. The blonde was just excited to be on this trip and acquire siblings. So much was happening right now that it was hard to contain the joy she felt. At first what Celeste found interesting turned into something that couldn't be explained. She was upset over not stopping for food and then blocked out the world with her music. Celeste could still hear it and she watched her for a moment, wondering if she was going to do anything else. But she didn't shift in her spot unless it was to get comfortable. The music was still loud. Someone else interested themselves and Celeste focused in on her. She said her name was Cora. "That is a nice name." Celeste complimented, the smile not fading from her face.

Finally in the background she heard the faint sound of the last sibling. Her name was Madeline. Another pretty name. "Also a pretty name." All her sisters had very pretty names. Sisters? That was so nice. She locked her hands together in her lap and they knocked her laptop. She forgot that she even had that. This was a wonderful time for pictures. She would keep the flash off for the sake of keeping them candid. First she shifted a bit in her chair and snapped a pictured of Adrianna. Then she captured one of the silent Madeline. Finally Cora. The pictures are always better candid. After some editing, they will be a thousand time betters.

She looked at Celeste. She was a very pretty young lady. She definitely thought she was very amazing and seemed like she was very hyper and excited about this trip. She definitely thought this trip was going to be interested. She was excited herself and was quite happy. She smiled at the girl who introduced herself. "Hello Madeline and Adriana." She smiled at both of them and then back at Celeste who she seemed drawn into. "So what brought all of you here into this specific situation? Madeleine? Adriana? Celeste?"

She definitely thought this was going to be a very introducing day. A very productive day. It wouldn't be like when she was younger with her family. Everything was very different. It wouldn't be like the days they were driving and listening to Avril Lavigne on the radio.

She needed life to be better and this trip was going to be that she cold feel it and see it through the spirits of these young girls surrounding her.

She was in her own little world and couldn't hear any of the conversing going on around her, however Adriana would look up from her phone when the bus made a sharp turn and then slowed down to a crawl.
"What the hell was that?" she'd ask aloud before standing up and walking towards the front windshield. By the time she got there the bus had come to a complete stop behind several other cars, and she could see the cause of the back-up was a police blockade.
"Looks like they're cleaning up some kind of spill, shouldn't take long so you can go sit back down." the driver said nonchalantly, but Adriana had spotted a Pizza joint right outside the bus doors and she had every intention of going inside.

"Hey, so you're like contracted to get us there safely right?" she'd ask the driver as she leaned against the dashboard.
"Yes indeed."
"Ah, so you couldn't like leave one of us on the side of the road or something without getting in trouble or like, breaking your contract - right?"
The driver would look up at Adriana with a annoyed and slightly confused expression on his face.
"Uhhh, well yeah I do beleive leaving a teen on the side of the road would get me fired. But why would i -" before he could finish Adriana would perk up and hit the button to open the side doors. "Thought so, be right back!!"
She was off the bus before the driver really even understood what had happened, and by the time he called out to her Adriana was at the Pizzeria's front doors.

Quite proud of herself Adrianna was all smiles as she ordered three pepperoni and bacon slices from the ready-to-eat buffet, as well as five 20oz Sprite's.



Once outside again the bus had moved up a few spots but not too far, and when she reached the closed bus doors the driver would glare down at her with his arms crossed.
"Hey, don't be like that! I got you something too!!"
Adriana would hold up the bag of sodas and flash her biggest shit-eating grin.
After making her wait a minute or so the driver would finally smirk and open the doors.

"Why thank you!" Adriana sarcastically remarked, before making her way back towards her seat. After she put her pizza box down she'd walk back up to the driver and hand him a bottle of Sprite before returning to her seat.

"Not sure who likes what, figured Sprite was a safe bet....dig in."
After taking out a bottle for herself Adriana would hand the bag to the bubbly blonde a couple seats away before digging into her pizza.

Bridgeway Tour Bus || City Unspecified || Time Unknown

Madeline was lost in her book for a while, silently listening to the conversation around her as the bus rolled on. The scenery continued to change with the words echoing in the bus. After a while, she reached the last page of her book and finally looked up, confused to see that the bus wasn't moving. She opened her mouth to say something but closed it immediately as Adriana started talking instead. The older girl was staring intently out the window while she conversed with the driver, talking about his contract. Madeline looked to the origin of her gaze and noticed the pizzeria across the street.

There was no time to really react before Adriana was out the door and running across the street. Madeline almost wanted to scold the girl for being so rash and quick to decide things. What if her rebellious actions got them in trouble? They were supposed to be making good impressions, not ruining their chances of getting a family. Madeline shrugged it off and searched her suitcase for another book. She was about 10 pages into Of Mice And Men by the time Adriana returned, pizza and drinks in hand.

Madeline had never really eaten much junk food, considering how she was never allowed to eat much other than the insanely health-based meals served at the orphanage. She listened half-heartedly as Adriana said something about Sprite being a safe bet, and as the drinks were passed to Celeste, Maddie simply went back to her book and tried to get her hunger out of her thoughts. The last thing she wanted was for her breath to smell like whatever scent the pizza had.

After a couple minutes, the roadblocks were removed and traffic started up again. More and more scenery passed while Madeline tried to ignore the warm scent billowing throughout the small area of the bus. She ended up falling asleep, her book almost dropping to the floor by the time she woke up again. The bus had slowed down considerably, and the scenery outside had turned from farmlands and forests to bright green fresh-cut lawns and hedges trimmed to the shape of different animals.

Madeline almost gasped when she caught sight of the actual house.

Celeste took some pictures of the scenery around them, but they weren't going to be all that great. The window was a rather horrible medium and it was ruining the beauty that nature had. She would have to wait until she got off of the bus before successfully taking any more pictures. The blonde turned off her camera and let it hang around her neck. Silence filled the bus and the bubbly child yawned. All the excitement she had earlier was draining from her, taking the rest of her energy with it. She ran her fingers through her hair, her gaze out the window. She knew that she would fall asleep eventually, but she wanted to watch the journey. It wasn't fun just waking up in the destination. Watching the process happen was made it all the more special. Mr. Sandman saw it a different way. He wanted his Little Angel to sleep before she got the place, but then something came in the way of her and dreamland. A police blockade and the smell of pizza.

Adriana was the one that risked her tail to the get the group something from the corner store. The driver didn't look very happy, but got over it when offered some food. Celeste tried to wake herself up as much as she could to the soda. Sprite wasn't her favorite, but it was kind of Adriana to even do what she did. And for that Celeste was grateful. "Thank you Adriana" Opening the soda slowly, the blonde let the soda fizz and then she drank from it. She drank about half before closing it back up. Then she was back to battling Mr. Sandman, but this time she let him win.

After some time the bus started to slow down and she started to awake. The sudden light blurred her vision. Little Angel rubbed her tired eyes waiting for everything to come into focus and she ended up gasping. This was the biggest house she had ever seen. There was so much space that Celeste was trying to figure out how many days it would take to take pictures of it all. "It's so pretty." she muttered to no one in particular. She was really eager to get off the bus and take settle into her new home.

After she finished her pizza Adriana would dive right back into her phone, watching a whole host of YouTube videos on the top half of her screen while commenting on random IMGUR uploads on the bottom half of her screen. Eventually both would get old and she'd begin to play Modern Combat 2 - staying awake all the way to the property gates.

....

As they drove up towards the house Adriana would notice the hedges and begin to chuckle as she rolled her eyes.
"You've got to be kidding me, animal shaped hedges? What is this, The freaking Shining??"
Shifting around in her seat she'd catch a full glimpse of the house they were approaching and again roll her eyes.
"Yup, it's that house from The Shining, bet these people are closet sociopaths." she'd remark sarcastically as she shoved the empty sprite bottle into her bag in preparation of getting off the bus.
She wasn't excited, but she wasn't scared either, more like she was annoyed yet content with the fact that she was once again being shuffled around to a house that wouldn't feel like her own and faced with having to not only go to a new school but look for a new job.


When the bus came to a stop outside of the house Adriana would begin to respond to a few comments on her instagram page vs. getting up to walk off, almost surely cementing her spot as the last one to exit the bus.

She watched as they stopped and Adriana got out and brought sprite and pizza. She grabbed a slice of pizza and a can of pop. "Thank you Adriana for the pizza and stuff." She took a bite of her pizza and watched as the driver continued. She always did that she wondered what others thought. It was an odd pastime but it was one of hers and she couldn't help it.

Out of her bag she grabbed a comic book and looked through it. She began to flip through it. It was one of her favorites. She decided to stop reading and look out. She grabbed her mp3 player and place it in her ears and listen to her music. She lip zynched the songs while they drove through the small cities and then started to go into farmland. When they finally got to the house area she was out of shock.

She watched as the others slowly woke up. "You must have all not slept good." She smiled at them and looked at the younger one who introduced herself as Celeste. She was very pretty and watched as the bus came to a stop. "This is beautiful. I only lived in the big city when my parents were alive."

She looked at the others. She grabbed her bag and walked out of the bus. She then walked down the three steps and finally was off the bus. She looked in ashtonishment around. She placed the bag on the ground and felt like Maria in the sound of music. A favorite movie of hers. She looked at the others. "Should I start calling you guys sis'? Or would that be weird?" She smiled at the gang wondering what they thought about the place.

Bridgeway Manor || Pennsylvania || Time Unknown

Madeline was too busy observing her surroundings to hear what the others were saying. It was Cora's voice she heard first after she snapped back to reality, and in response to her question, she simply shook her head. She wouldn't mind being called sis or anything like that. In all honesty, Madeline didn't mind what anyone called her, even if it was cruel and horribly offensive. She'd been bullied and teased so much in the past that she was almost immune to insults. But, right now, her thoughts weren't what mattered. What mattered was making a good impression and getting the family to like her. Madeline didn't want the couple to kick her out the first day. Or ever...

Slipping her book into her bag, Madeline stood and patiently waited for Celeste to exit, since she looked terribly eager to leave and look around. She followed the cheery blonde onto the paved driveway and proceeded to analyze her surroundings. Hedges here, paths there, everything was so neat and beautiful. Not a single blade of grass was where it shouldn't be. Frankly, it was impressive that a home this large could be so clean and orderly.

Cora and Adriana stepped off behind her, and the bus slowly drove away, turning to park in a small lot on the opposite side of the circular driveway. There was another RV parked in the little lot, along with two shiny and expensive-looking cars and, to Madeline's surprise, a rusty run-down red pickup truck. It seemed so out of place among all the shine and clean cars. She assumed it belonged to one of the workers. Or perhaps it was meant to be a gift? Maybe. Adriana was the only one who was old enough to drive. Well, Madeline was old enough, but she lacked the confidence and funds to have actually gotten her license.

Pulling her eyes away from the odd possibilities, Madeline's gaze went to the house itself. It was HUGE. Easily the biggest house Madeline had ever seen. It was almost as big as the orphanage, with marble pillars and brick decor, huge clear windows and plants hanging from hooks in the porch cover. It was magnificent. Then, looking to the front door, Madeline noted two figures in the distance. Their soon-to-be parents.

"Do you think we should go up to meet them? Or do we wait for someone to come get us?"

Everyone else had finally seen how amazing the house was. Celeste was just the only one practically bouncing up and down in her seat. Everything was so elegant and she wasn't even inside yet. She couldn't wait to get inside. Adriana didn't seem very impressed with everything. If anything she was mocking it. Celeste wanted to scold her, but the blonde kept her mouth shut. Adriana was clearly much older than the child and she didn't want to start something unnecessary. Cora was at least grateful for the new house the group was going to live in. The smile on Celeste's face widened. She still couldn't believe it. The blonde pinched herself gently to make sure that she wasn't still sleeping on the bus. But she was wide awake and full of a ridiculous amount of energy. She stood up and grabbed her bag before practically running off the bus. The sun was very bright and she felt a thousand times smaller next to the building. "Should I start calling you guys sis'? Or would that be weird?" Celeste turned and smiled widely at Cora. "I like being called Sis." she said not minding having a sister.

Her attention was back on the house and she pulled out her camera. She snapped a few pictures and scrolled through them. The camera wasn't enough to catch the beauty. "Do you think we should go up to meet them? Or do we wait for someone to come get us?" That was a good question that Celeste had an answer for. "Let's go meet them, so we can see in the inside already." Celeste put the camera away and picked her bag back up. Not really waiting for her new siblings, she headed off towards the entrance of the house. She could hardly wait to meet her new parents.
