Description

Image

Image


Image
Image

Name: Aristela Jade Nickels
Nickname: Ari, call her anything else and die.
Age: 17
Gender: Female
Role: Female 5
Image
Image


Personality: Ari is very quiet around new people and usually will only answer yes or no questions, with a nod or by shaking her head. When she does talk she's very sarcastic which gets on most people's nerves but some of the things she says are actually hilarious. She's not very friendly and it takes a lot for her to trust someone. She's very independent and has always refused to accept help even when she really needed it. She doesn't lie for the good of other's she just tells the truth no matter how painful it is. Don't get me wrong she can be a great liar when she wants to be, but usually she has no reason to lie.

Items:
* Her Ipod and headphone's that somehow still work
*A guitar pick
* A lighter
* A life jacket she was handed but refuses to use


Likes:
*Music
*Her instruments
*Horror movies
*Seafood
* Fire
* Smart People

Dislikes:
*People who act stupid
* Classical music
* Whales
*Cats
*Sweet foods
* Sluts


Fears:
*Sharks, Just the thought of them terrifies her
* Heights, She'll freak out if she thinks she's up to high
*Lightning, she doesn't know why it's just always freaked her out


Flaws: Ari never looks at the bright side of things which often makes her depressed. And she absolutely refuses to accept help from anyone, she thinks that if she can't do something on her own she's weak.

History: Ari was born in New York to an abusive family. When she was about 8 she finally told someone and was beat to the point of needing to go to the hospital for it, that's when she stopped accepting help. But they found out what was happening and she was sent to an orphanage where she was adopted right away to a very nice family. She loves them like they were her real family. Her adoptive brother who she was very close to was in a band and he taught her how to play almost all the instruments, she was already naturally talented at singing so she was fine with that. She spent most of her time doing something musical as she grew up and joined a band. It took a lot of convincing for her to go on this cruise and leave her band who were her only real friends, behind for a while.

So begins...

Rosemarie breathed a sigh of relief.
"You okay?" She asked. She noticed the other girl, (Pearla) was slowly waking up. "It looks like everyone's awake and alive," Rosemarie said, letting out a long sigh.

She took off her own jacket and placed it beneath her to make her pants less wet from the bottom of the raft. She watched more people fall off the deck.
"THank god we're alive," She muttered.

As the girl he was resuscitating began waking up, Grant snatched up the sweatshirt that was being offered up earlier and laid it over her, trying to warm her up. His head turned as the (formerly) unconscious girl began waking up, and he moved over to that side of the raft.

"Hi, I'm just going to need to ask you some questions." The questions were just preliminary, to make sure she didn't have any severe head trauma.

"What is your name? How old are you? Who was the first president of the United States?" He paused after each question to let her answer, then poured a couple breath mints in his hand.

"Take these, I'm worried you might have low blood sugar." Grant said, extending his hand.

Keith watches as the two girls open their eyes, he smiles widely.

We're alive.

He was so happy, but the thought of his wife was lingering in his mind, where was she? Did she make it to a raft? Was she alive? He couldn't think about that now, he needed to think about the now, this situation. Drifting on a raft, going where the current takes us. Keith looks from face to face again, their faces calmer than before. They had a chance now. This felt like it is the happiest day of his life.

She heard the questions and answered them involuntarily.
"Alexa."
"17."
"Washington"
Then he gave her pills. Told her to take them. He was obviously a medic, but she didn't trust the meds.
"I can't take them. I don't need them. I'm ok." She sat up and put her hands on her stomach. 'Please be okay baby. Mommy's got you.' She looked up to the medic. "I think Something hit me on the head during the whole crashing part. I remember sitting in my room, then a bang, I felt dizzy and walked into the hall towards the deck, then I don't remember anything else." She rubbed her stomach, trying to feel for the baby she just discovered a few days ago. It was only about a month old, but she knew it wouldn't be long until the little munchkin would be noticeable, if the baby had survived the wreck. A tear fell at the thought.

Roxi looked at the others, they seemed more content than she would ever be in this situation. She wasn't a happy type. She had so many worries piling up in her mind.

What about Food? Shelter? Water(purified)? What if a storm hit?

Her mind could go on. Roxi was about to share her thoughts, but she figured she would when everyone else was a tad more...calm. She curled up tighter.

I'm so cold I might as well have Hypothermia!

Roxi thought, but she knew it was very unlikely.

The paramedic raised an eyebrow as he looked back at the young woman.

"They're breath mints, not meds." He said, still offering them, then examined her head as she voiced her concerns.

"You've definitely got a bump. I think you had a concussion. You should be fine, just take it easy though." He stood up and looked around.

"Alright, everyone that was in the water, I'm gonna need you to look at your extremities, make sure they're not a pale color or numb."

Roxi looked up, as she heard someone speak.
"Alright, everyone that was in the water, I'm gonna need you to look at your extremities, make sure they're not a pale color or numb."
He had announced. Roxi murmured to herself,
"I already miss Mat asking me what the heck that means,"
She held the sides of her headphones, and started to get stuck in the past. In a matter of seconds, she quickly realized where she was, and did what the man had instructed.
"Hmm. This is going to be hard, I'm already so pale myself..."
She mumbled.

Alexa felt her cheeks redden. Her paranoia got the best of her and she felt like an idiot. She took the mints, nodding, and sucked on them. Her head ached slightly, but it was most likely from the stress. She looked to her fingers and wiggled them, then her toes. She could feel everything so she wasn't freezing to death...yet. "Where do we go now?" She looked out to the empty waters all around. The only thing in sight was the remains of the wreck and a few birds.

Perla could feel her body being grabbed and brought onto the raft, but it was just all black. She felt at peace and could almost feel herself smiling. Then, she felt something warm cover her lips and felt as though something was coming back to her. Perla slowly opened her eyes and seen a man giving her mouth to mouth. Perla blushed, and even though it was just to save her life, she was still embarrassed. Perla looked around and seen some people smiling at her awakening. Perla was quickly covered with something and she felt warmer. She sat up and spit some water out of her mouth then looked at everyone. She was having quick flashbacks of the little boy... screaming... and her falling off the cruise ship. Perla shut her eyes, trying to shake the though from her head. Perla then realized that she was still wearing her formal dress but seen another girl wearing a fancy dress as well. The dress was now soaked in sea water, so she just ripped from the slit and below, and she was now wearing a dress that touched her thighs. Perla looked around at everyone, again, completely speechless.

Keith wiggled his toes and fingers, the feeling and colour there. He reachs into his pocket and feels around for his phrase cards, he needed those to communicate because he didn't learn sign language. His fingers clasp around the small keyring that they were attached to, a small torch dangling from it as well. He pulls the keyring out and looks at it. Only one of them survived, the rest had disintegrated in the water. He is slightly disappointed but at least he has the most important one, his name. Keith looks up from the card and smiles. He looks at everyone and gives a small wave before holding the card up, his name visible.

We might as well get to know each other.

"My name is Roxanna, but the most preferred name is Roxi."
Roxi stated, her voice monotone, and dark.
"The age is eighteen, and PLEASE try not to ask me about the headphones."
Exasperation rung in her voice when she hit the word 'please'.

Rosemarie listened to the other introductions.
"Well, my name is Rosemarie, and I'm 21 years old. THe cruise was a gift from my brother," She shook her head and thought of him. She quickly took a swipe at her eyes and pasted a pained smile on her face and waited for the next person to introduce themselves.

Ari

Image Ari's eyes widen when all the sudden the ship that she had been forced to go on starts to tip to the side. She curses under her breath as she's slammed against the wall painfully. She grabs onto her bed that was nailed into the floor and manages to pull herself to her feet without falling. Ari stumbles to the door and throws it open before looking around the long hallway. Already regretting that she hadn't gone to some formal thing with her brother. She quickly makes her way to the part of the ship where everybody seems to be going. Pulling out one of her ear bud's when she get's there so she can hear better. She shoves through the crowd of panicking people looking for her brother. "Ray!" She screams when she see's him. Ari sighs in relief when her brother hears her and starts rushing through the crowd to get to her, looking panicked. "What happened!" She shouts over the screaming people when he finally get's to her. Already knowing what he's going to say. Before he can answer he's pushed off the ship by a guy trying to get through. Ari quickly looks a over the edge leaning against the railing so she won't fall in. She see's his head go under and doesn't hesitate before jumping in after him. After searching the water for a few minutes and not seeing anything, she finally gives up holding back tears. She look's around for somewhere to go and uses the last of her energy to swim towards a life raft that already seems to be filled with people. Grabbing onto the side and struggling to pull herself up.

Ari

Image Ari sighs in relief when she's pulled out of the icy water and wraps her arms around herself. Looking at the girl who'd pulled her into the raft. She decides to answer her. "Yeah, I'm fine." She says trying to say as little as possible. As she looks around at all the people uncertainly. Then she remembers the girl had asked her name. "My names Ari." She mutters.

Grant rushed over to the new arrival and leaned down. He noticed the slight shivers she had; actually a good sign. He looked quickly at her fingers, she didn't seem like she had frostbite but because of the icy waters it was possible.

"Hey, I'm gonna need you to do this-" He said, opening and closing his fingers around his palms repeatedly. After checking on her, he went to sit down.

"My name's Grant, by the way. And I can say this is easily my second worst day at work ever."

Ari

Image Ari decides since she has no clue how to handle any of this crap that she should listen to the guy and starts doing what he said absentmindedly. She starts paying attention again when the guy talks. She raises an eyebrow. Second she thinks to herself. She would ask but she figures if he wanted anyone to know he would tell them.

-Alexa Swanson-

Alexa looked around at all the introductions. She thought about what she would say. Her name and age, of course, maybe how she came to be on the cruise, but what about how she is more than one person? Should she tell them about her pregnancy, one that could be over before it even got started really? If they were good people, they would most likely let her have more of the already sparse food and water. She didn't want others to starve over a baby who could already be dead.

Before she realized it, Alexa was crying silently to herself. Already, in two days time, she had come to love the thing inside her. The thought of he/she not making it scared Alexa. She curled up the best she could in her soaked white dress, which was now more or less see through. The tears continued to fall silently.

"It's alright. It's ok," She spoke in a low soothing voice.
"What's your name?" She asked softly.

Perla noticed how everyone was throwing around introductions, so she decided to introduce herself as well.

My name is Perla Maddalena.
Perla stated in a silent but clear voice. She didn't have a very strong accent, but it was obvious that she was Spanish. Perla heard silent weeping and looked at a woman with blonde hair, so bright it almost seemed white. She couldn't exactly tell if it was dyed or not, but she decided that she would crawl over towards her and comfort her. Someone had already beat her to it, but she just went to her other side. When the other woman asked what her name was, Perla nodded, wanting to find out what her name was. But before that was shared, she wanted to know what was wrong.
Uh, are you okay?

Alexa looked to the girl trying to calm her. She had no clue how wrong she was, but for her sake, Alexa tried to fake a smile.
"I'm Alexa Swanson. I just turned 17 last month. This was supposed to be a relaxing break from my parents divorce..." She stopped and took a deep breath. Then turned to the medic. "Theoretically, if someone on board was about a month pregnant, would uh...would the baby be ok?" She could feel herself on the edge of tears again.

Keith sat in his own little space watching the newest member be pulled aboard. There was nothing he could do really. He put the key ring in his pocket and shifted in his seat. His ears caught the last bit of a question and his eyes opened wide.He shouldn't get involved, there was a medic on board, he'll handle it, wouldn't he? He shook his head and looked around the raft, wondering what everyone was thinking.

It's not that bad. At least we're not alone.

He put his head back and breathed a long slow breath, trying to relax a bit and forget what he heard. He almost wanted to fall asleep but he knew that they wouldn't let him sleep. He imagines what would happen and laughs to himself a bit.

Grant wasn't the most subtle guy, but the information he was trying to get was vital.

"Well that's not really part of my expertise, but it would depend on say, if that person was knocked out and the cause of that loss of consciousness. If a loss of pregnancy did occur, the typical symptoms, like morning sickness or sore breasts, would stop after a short time."

He leaned back and a long shiver went up his spine. He was feeling pretty cold after having dived in the water (twice), but knew other people needed his jacket more than him; he could manage.
