Farrah Hanna Decanay (16)•Jacob Riley Decanay(24)•Delia Rose Decanay (8)

Other Family:

Family History:
Della grew up with Jacob, her overprotective older brother, until he turned 20 and moved to live with his wife on the outskirts of town. When Della was six, she found out that her mother was pregnant with Farrah. When Farrah came, the family changed. Farrah was high-maintenance, and refused to do anything unless it was done her way. Thankfully, she left that stage when she was seven. A year later, Delia was born. Delia is a soft-spoken, innocent eight year old who wouldn't hurt a fly. After Delia was born, her father went back to work as a foreign policy board member. At Delia's seventh birthday, Jacob and Toria came to visit, with newborn twins Margaret and Davis. Needless to say, Delia didn't get much attention that day. After that, everybody loved Jacob's wife. She was kind, sweet, and giving, and didn't lie. Nowadays, Toria doesn't go out much, as she is pregnant with her third child, and is trying to tend to Margaret, who is sick.

Origin:
The Decanay family, cousins of the royal Ver Jaquez family, is one of the oldest families in all of Highwaters. Despite their modest income, they many royal connections. Some famous people from the Decanay line include Karoline Decanay, inventor of the York tablet, a tablet that connects with your mind to help you do everything hands free, and Grey Parinar, who discovered the lost Caves of Highwaters, along with Carter Decanay, who helped found Highwaters with Simon Ver Jaquez one thousand years ago. The Sabyn line is another line of royal descent. The Sabyns are king and queen of Highwater's mountainous neighbor to the north, Kealia.

Other
Life:
Della's life in New York City is that of luxury. Her father is a successful neurosurgeon and her mother is a laywer, so she has money to spend. She has no siblings, and no cousins. She comes from two lines that have had only one child for six generations. So, unfortunately for her, she didn't have anybody to hang out with at family reunions. Della's ex boyfriend, Jack, has an adopted daughter named Penny, and Della visits her once a month, but other than that, there aren't any children in her life.

Best Memory:
Della's best memory in New York City is of her and the other seven attending a Michael Buble concert.

Della strode over to her family, and plopped down in the chair by the fireplace, the same one she had been sitting in since she was six. She talked and laughed with her family for a few hours, truly enjoying the company. After eating an entire bag of marshmallows, Della excused herself and went to bed, falling into her giant mattress without bothering to change into her pajamas.

Della awoke what seemed like a few minutes later, but she knew it had been at least eight hours. She stretched out, and suddenly stopped. She put her hands on the bed, and pushed down. She couldn't feel the ground, like she could in her bed. She slowly got up, and turned around, preparing to fight with whatever she could get her hands on. She turned around to find something, and looked down to see that she definitely wasn't wearing her clothes. She was wearing a giant sweater, and polka-dot printed shorts. Even more frightened, she climbed out of bed and crept around a corner. Not seeing anybody, she relaxed against a counter, breathing heavily. Suddenly, memories of another life, another her, came rushing into her mind. She stayed in a shocked position for what seemed like hours. Once her mental refresh was finished, she went over to what she now knew was her closet, and grabbed a random dress and some shoes. She stopped in front of the floor-length mirror to look at her outfit, and then rushed into the hallway, convincing herself that she wasn't alone. She couldn't be alone. That would mean that she had to navigate this city all alone. I have to get back. I need to find somebody to get me back, Della thought, desperation slowly taking over.

Della ran outside, and hailed a cab, whistling as though it was natural, even though she knew that she couldn't whistle. She stepped in the cab and told the driver, "Take me to 8441 on Lymewood and Sun Ray, and hurry, I'm running late," in a sharp tone, and leaned back into the grimy seat, thinking about why she'd be going to Sun Ray Street. Olivia, she thought. Olivia Regis, her ex-boyfriend's adopted daughter. Trent let her visit once every month, and she took advantage of that, letting her stay at her house for a night and watching movies together. Today, though, they had things to do. Trent asked her to take Olivia to get her sixth birthday pictures taken because he had to work, so she and Kody had arranged to have a mini photo shoot to surprise Olivia.

Kody? Della thought, confused for a second. Kody Rinaldi. They were best friends back in Highwaters, and would do everything together. She was a photographer now, and Della often went to her for all of her needs. And she was going to be late if she didn't hurry up. As the cab pulled up to the condo that Trent and Olivia lived in, Della leapt out of the cab, running over to Olivia, mumbling apologies as she ran back to the cab with Olivia now in her arms, only to see it driving away. Now swearing under her breath, Della ran to the next cab she found. She got in and told the cab driver to go to Kody's Kiddie Korner, rushing Olivia into the backseat. Once they passed the coffee shop, she told the cab driver to pull over. She had forgotten to grab a hot chocolate, like she always did with Olivia. She paid the driver before picking Olivia up and placing her on her back, and dashed into the shop. She went to order, but Olivia beat her to it. She ran up to the counter and told the cashier what she wanted. As Della ordered, and waited for the hot chocolates, she took a glance around the shop, her eyes stopping on Kody. Della looked back at Olivia and said, "Stay right here, okay? I'll be right back," before heading towards Kody.

"Well, howdy stranger," she said to Kody, a smile on her face. Well, at least I'm not alone anymore, Della thought, happy that she had somebody to help her, but guilty at the same time. Why is somebody else's misfortune bringing me joy?

Dakota came to yet another realization. She had paid for her coffee and offered money for the second customer, as if it was in her daily routine. What else was in her bag? Did she already know this...? These two lives, one person memory was beginning to be a nuiscance as she settled the bag on top of the table in front of her. Kody closed her eyes and gently pressed a hand against the black fake leather. House keys...work keys...wallet...camera...buisness cards..pen...red lipstick..compact mirror.. She thought. As if expecting an animal to jump out at her, Kody carefully lifted the flap to check the bag. She was right. Everything she had guessed, was in her bag. She let out a breath of air and shook her head carefully. I'm not going crazy...am I? No. She couldn't be.

At that moment, a voice flooded her mind. She glanced up from her bag to a young woman, with reddish hair and an upbeat voice. Her eyes widened. Della! It was Della! From Highwaters! Kody nearly spilled her drink in her hand standing up abruptly. She hugged her friend tightly around the neck.

"Oh! You're here too! I have been so lost this morning and I-" Then she spotted Olivia. "Wait...I- I have an appointment with you later. Whoa.." She stepped back from her friend. "You and I have been making arrangements for the past week...but I swear, yeterday, last night, I was Renee, and now I'm... Dakota, Kody Rinaldi. What is happening?" Kody plopped herself back into her chair.

"None of this makes any sense..."

Della ran up and returned the hug that Kody- Renee- had given her, and let out a breath of relief. She remembers, Della thought. She returned to reality after Kody spoke. "It doesn't make any sense. This... thing that's happened is beyond me. I suddenly have habits and abilities I didn't have last night. I have a life I didn't have before last night. Do you have any idea of what's happening?" Della shot out in one breath. She turned to Olivia, who had toddled over with the drinks sloshing precariously around in the holder despite her orders to stay there, and sat her down a few tables over. She walked the few steps back to Kody, and worriedly waited around for an answer. How am I to get out of here? I'm not going to be able to do it alone, Della thought, close to tears. She hurriedly wiped her eyes, and sniffled just a little bit.

Dakota watched as her friend, Della make her way to the little child, before she returned to where she stood. The young woman shook her head sadly, slowly to make sure her hat stayed upon her head. She took a deep breath and slowly released it to calm her nerves. "I've not one idea. All I can make sense of, is that I have lived two very, very different lives. I have a sister and I'm almost certain I shared a bed with someone last night." Kody explained, suddenly biting her lower lip uneasily. "What bothers me the most is that...whatever happened last night, that brought us here, was far from the normal."

Kody took a small drink from her coffee and her eyes caught the clock on the wall. She shook the container gently before tossing it into the garbage can beside the door. "Would you two mind coming with me to the shop? It is your appointment after all, and I fear that if I don't go there soon, my mind would get complicated and jumbled for what could be the billionth time today, well, this morning." She finally added.

Her lips turned into a small smile before she grabbed a napkin and her danish. She was awake now, thanks to the caffeine. What all that she needed now, was answers. But, it looked as if those would have to wait a bit longer.

Della shook her head in response to Kody's question, and, grabbing her hot chocolate, took a step out of the door with Olivia, waiting for Kody. Della knew what it was like to have no clue who you really are. Taking a sip of her hot chocolate, she choked, not expecting to be so hot. Olivia started jumping on and down in worry as Della started coughing. "No, no," Della said, waving her hand, "I'm fine, the hot chocolate was just hot. You should wait before drinking though, Olivia."

Sitting down at a table outside of the cafe, she gestured to Olivia to sit with her, and she pulled a smartphone out of her bag. No, my phone, Della thought, shaking her head. It's my phone. She turned it on, and typed 6143 into the password bar. To her relief, although she hadn't had any second thoughts about the password on her phone, the phone unlocked, opening to a background of her, Olivia, and Kody. And a lot of apps. A lot. She saw Flappy Bird, Facebook, Tumblr, and something called Angry Birds. Why are those birds angry? Della thought, before realizing that it was a game. She handed her phone to Olivia as though she had been doing it her entire life, and began to absentmindedly hum a tune that she was not familiar with.

Kody watched as Della handed her phone off to Olivia, almost on instinct. Random thoughts echoed throughout her mind, more so questions that just didn't seem...normal. Was it a possibility that they just dreamt their old life? Could it be that their minds connected? Well, the mind is a powerful thing. Mind... why was it that, that word struck out at her most? She couldn't shake the angsty feeling that lurched in her stomach as her eyes closed to steady her heart rate. Too much confusion in one day, surely, she'd sleep hard tonight. Kody smiled at Olivia and gently settled herself on her knees in front of the child.

"Are you ready for your shoot, Olivia? I think, we're going to do a swing today, how about that idea?" She wondered. She glanced back at Della and smiled. "Let's go and hurry on to the shop. I don't get paid if I don't shoot some amazing photographs."

[[Short this time, but I'll write more on the next post. Just drew a stupid blank.]]

[[No, it's fine. I get writer's block all of the time. :)]]

Della smiled at the way Kody interacted with Olivia. When Kody turned to talk to her, she nodded in agreement and said, "Let's head out. It's... how much again? I honestly cannot remember. Should I?"

Now she was really confused. Turning to Olivia, she picked her up and said, "Okay, time to go, okay cutie?" She took back her phone and shoved it in her bag. Realizing that she probably wouldn't be able to find it, she opted for putting it into her front pocket instead. Standing up with the small girl hanging on to her, she turned back to her friend.

"Shall we?" Della asked, a goofy smile on her face, habit and instinct taking over as she laughed. She turned to walk out of the door before remembering they were already outside. Shaking her head at herself, she walked over to the street and hailed another cab. Maybe I should get a car, Della thought, wondering what on Earth she would do with a car.

"Well." Kody stopped. How much were the pictures anyhow? She should know this, if she had lived such a life for, what seemed to be awhile. She tapped her nose gently as she began her stroll down the sidewalk. "Ten for the portraits, ten for the 'Swing Spring' collection. Five for the printing... so twenty-five is what we agreed on." She nodded, that sounded about right. The young woman fixed her hat gently before continuing on. This street was quite entertaining, she'd have to admit that. The "PickMeUp Station" coffee shop, "Piece A Pizza", the pizza place, a newspaper stand and hot dog stand, and then the entrance to the substation, before they arrived to her small business. Kody smiled and gently reached into her bag, fumbling until her fingers wrapped around her keys.

As soon as she unlocked the door, sensors flipped on the lights. Right as one walked in, one would noticed the counter with a jar of lollipops, a sample album and random picture frames here and there. Behind the counter was a desk with a laptop. In the corner of the room was a backdrop, chair and a box of props. On the opposite side, there was a curtain, which covered the green leaves, vines and the white swing. Cameras were locked away in cases along the back wall for security and for display. The walls were painted with blues, greens and reds. It was a perfect setting for children, for against the window facing the photography makings, were chairs and random toys for children to play with to keep them occupied, as well as magazines for adults to read while they wait.

Kody smiled. Along the walls were black and white photos of bridges, streams, trains and random folk. Her photos. She had to admit, they were quite beautiful. "Come on in." She waved the two inside before propping the door open for them. "Olivia can play with the toys while I get set up." She directed.

Dakota made her way behind her desk and flipped on the laptop. Her eyes fixed on the screen and for a moment, she didn't know her password. Oh no..., she thought, biting her red coated lip a she fumbled with her mind. "Hmm..." She softly typed in Renee. two-four-one-three, and it clicked on immediately.

Della followed Kody, while checking her purse and finding an already-written-out check waiting in her bag, her feet having their own sense of direction as they walked to get Olivia's photos taken. She marveled at the shop as the lights turned on, despite having a feeling of déjà vu. Olivia, laughing, ran to play with the toys. Della turned, check already in hand, and handed it to Kody, smiling at Olivia giggling over a teddy bear. She craned her neck over to the swing hanging from the ceiling and said, "Olivia's never going to want to leave if you set her on that swing, I hope you know that," with a smile, and continued, "Her school is asking for a yearbook photographer to come and take pictures of the kids in their classrooms, and I suggested you. Would you do it?"

While waiting for answer that would hopefully be a yes, Della tapped her fingers on the counter top, humming along with the beat. What song is this? Della asked herself, before remembering. It's Nothing To Do. You love The Well Pennies. She started singing along as she tapped, well aware of her horrible singing voice. "I go where the wind goes. Whatever I build inside my head. Lately, I've got a whole light... what are the lyrics? Da-rn it. I thought I knew the lyrics better than that," Della mumbled to herself.

Della looked sadly at Kody. "You're not just a stable girl. You're a great person, and are very talented, not to mention quite the looker," she finished with a slight chuckle. "You're my best friend, and a great equestrian, and photographer, as I can tell by this. You were destined for something great. I can tell. Plus, I get the whole 'I'm confused because who am I again' thing. You can decide later. To be honest, I have no idea where that came from."

Della turned to watch Olivia clamber onto the swing, and continued to watch as she started moving, shouting and giggling with glee. Della smiled at the sight. She turned back to Kody to awkwardly pat her on the shoulder. She never had been good with sentiment. She was better with the blunt truth, no matter how painful it was. And this was the truth. Kody was always the better person, helping others, giving back to the community, and helping hurt children. Della was glad that she was stuck in some smelly, crime ridden world with her.

Della glanced over the photos, selecting two of Olivia on the swing, one of her on the ground, and two of her actually swinging, glancing up as she heard Kody mumble something. "What was that?" she asked, wanting to make sure that her friend was okay.

"I hope you're okay- scratch that, you'd better be okay- because you're my friend and you're amazing. And could I get some of these made into a mini album," Della continued, unable to help the random (and incredibly rude) topic change. She never meant to be rude of hurt people, it just sort of... happened.

Fearing for what her friend would say, Della quickly added, "Not that your matter isn't incredibly important, because it is, and it takes precedence over some stupid album. Oh gosh, I'm sorry!" she finished, burying her face in her hands.

Dakota shook her head softly. It wasn't that important, but it was enough for her to trouble on it. She clicked on the different photos she wanted, clicking them for print as well as selecting mini photos for the album. A beep was heard in the corner of the desk as the first photo began to print. She watched as the lazer slid back and forth, as inch by inch the photo began to slide out. The photographer looked back at her frantic friend and shook her head once more before reaching out and touching her arm.

"Don't worry about it, love." She whispered, unlocking a drawer closer to the edge of the desk. "It's just... Who could I possibly be sharing a bed with? Who could I possibly be kissing? As far as I'm concerned, I only had one crush back in Highwater and that was certainly not going anywhere. I don't like this, Della. I want to go home." She replied, sliding the drawer out.

"Here." She took out a binder and sat it in front of her friend. "These are samples of the different albums we have so you can hold onto the miniature photos." Kody whispered, leaning into her chair.

Della smiled at her friend, reassured for a short time. After the kissing comment, Della said, "Don't worry. We'll get home. We just need to calm down and clear our minds, and I promise you, that crush of yours was going somewhere."

Della glanced down at the miniature album Kody put in front of her, flipping through the photos that she had picked out. She looked back up at her upset friend, and nodded. "I'll take this and the regular photos, please. And again, don't worry. We'll get out of here, and we can find you somebody to make you happy."

Della turned back to Olivia and called out, "Come here, sweetie! We have to go!" She was insistent, despite Olivia groaning and whining and making excuses to stay and play.
