(Just ignore little ole me and my fail posting areas)
Reeva glanced around herself, once again she was in the forest. Though it was her territory. Hey, at least I made myself a sandwich when I was sleepwalking. The girl blinked at the delicious looking thing, happy that she already had lunch ready for school. Her parents would both be off at work already. They were rarely home anymore anyway. She slipped inside, grabbed her backpack that was already fully packed, zipped it up, and grabbed an apple. She then hopped down the steps solemnly, her thoughts dancing around madly as she tried to remember what she had dreamed about and had thought about. The feelings and emotions that came to her during her slumber. Though she snapped right back awake as she realized she was already at the bus stop. I really don't want to have to do this. School is almost over. Okay, Reeva, just get in, get your tests, go home, finish them, bring them back, skip out on the rest of school. They've let you do it before.... She scratched her head, her hand firmly placed against the railing as she climbed up and took her seat by the window.

The green-haired girl opened up a book, though just stared blankly at it as she resumed her thoughts. But no one would notice she wasn't turning the page. No one cared enough, nor were they that observant. She rolled her eyes, waiting for the stop. When that happened, she shuffled out, one of the first kids off, and disappeared in the buildings, heading straight for the library before class.

Reeva scaled the rows of books, pulling a couple of them out daintily and putting them neatly in her backpack. She waved to the librarian, then took off to class. For her, classes went by smoothly and without any hitches, and she understood most of what the teachers were talking about. She rubbed her eyes, heading off towards the doors directly opposite of the cafeteria. She paused for a split-second, her eyes locking with that of another boy's. And then she kept walking, wanting no evil eye or glare. She merely put her head down, and slipped out the doors, making her way towards the trees. It was still relatively cool outside, the weather being overcast despite the dawn's morning. The girl bit into her sandwich, savoring the flavor and amazed at how good she was when she was asleep, but how much she utterly failed when conscious. The thought was fleeting though, and she finished her sandwich quickly and picked up her apple.

A sigh escaped her lips, and she leaned against the trunk of the tree, trying to ignore the students who were scurrying from one building to the next.

Dove was harshly woken from her dream. She couldn't remember the dream all that well, but as she looked around, she found that she was laying atop the table on her back porch. Dove was a bit confused, but finally concluded that she must have fell asleep under the stars the other night. She used to do it every night in Hawaii and now that the weather was warm, she could do it here now. Dove stretched and headed back inside where her dad gave her a curious look, but said nothing as Dove headed upstairs. She got dressed slowly, picking out every article of clothing and accessory carefully and taking time to do her makeup and hair perfectly. Dove picked her bag up from the floor, took one last look in the mirror, blew herself a kiss for good luck, and headed downstairs to her waiting father.

"You're even later than usual, Dovey," her father said and shook her head as his daughter walked sleepily past him. He rolled his eyes before grabbing his keys and heading out the door after her.

As the car pulled up to her school, Dove's dad quickly scribbled out a note for the principal explaining why she was late yet again. Dove gave him a quick kiss on the cheek and stepped out of the car. She walked slowly into the building, figuring that she was already late so there was no point in hurrying. She walking into the attendance office and the assistant shook her head disapprovingly, but gave Dove a late pass anyway.

Dove walked into her class, giving the teacher her pass and slid into her seat. Chances were that she was supposed to be reviewing for finals, but Dove knew that it was no use for her, and she was too tired to even keep her eyes open.

The bell rang for lunch and Dove was jolted out of her sleep. She immediately jumped from her seat and walked out into the hallway. She stepped into the cafeteria and mentally slapped herself. She had forgotten to get money for lunch. Dove just shrugged and continued walking through the cafeteria. She stopped at almost every table to greet her friends. She got a few invites to sit down, but denied them to continue looking for some of her greatest friends.

Dove looked over to another table and saw Neren reading a book. She smiled and looked down at the girl, "Must be a good book, bra," she said with her heavy Hawaiian accent and continued walking.

She spotted the best friends, Shale and Mitchel and made her way over to them. Dove laughed and leaned over the table saying sarcastically, "Ya look a bit shaken there Mitchy." She looked around at the cafeteria full of studying, stressed students and sighed before looking back over at the two boys. "Why does everyone get so stressed 'bout these stup'd tests?"

It was the first time in years that he was conscious, in madness he reacted terrible to his new surrounding, new scents and new sights attacked him all at once. He thrashed about breaking several appliances before he felt his control slipping as his vision faded and he fell to the floor.

Erik had been up late that night and woke up on his floor, his first immediate thought was How much sleep did I get? Then he noticed his destroyed room, before he had time to guess at what could of happened he heard his sister yell, "The bus is coming!" He threw on clothes and rushed downstairs to greet Sarah, his 15 year old little sister. "Hurry up," he said in his deep booming voice. He rushed ahead of her and they rushed to the bus stop. They lived far from the school in a smaller neighborhood near the edge of the woods, there were other houses but they had a little bit of space allowing for a small bit of privacy.

The bus arrived and they boarded, same old same old, Erik thought. He was ready for school to be over, ready to see the world for himself rather then through pictures in text books.

The day went by slowly but nothing significant happened, it was as average as other, but he pondered over how his room could be so wrecked. Also he puzzled over the reason for the intense animalistic fear he felt for a brief second when he woke up. Over time these thoughts drifted into the back of his mind and before he knew it, it was lunch.

He got his food and sat alone, looking over the crowd of people as he ate. He had never made any real friends, therefore sat alone. He knew of almost everyone there though. He listened for familiar voices and eaves dropped on conversations, it was the only thing to do to pass time while he ate slowly. Sometimes he wished he was more social, but he was to ashamed to admit this, even to himself.

Herald woke in a start. He had a vague dream of swimming in the back yard pond, and was shocked to wake up next to the pond. Confused, Herald went inside to get ready for school. When he opened the door his father screamed "Where in the hell have you been!?" Herald explained to him how he woke up out side. His fathers answer to his pleas of forgiveness was a smack to the back side of his head. Herald took it like he would any other time his father hit him while he was drunk or hungover. He quickly ran to his room and got ready for school. Once he was ready he ran to school since it was three blocks away.

First hour was Heralds math final, which automatically he decided he was going to have a bad day because of. The rest of the day he thought about how he could have woken up by the pond. He's not known to sleep walk but on the other hand what other explanation could it be? Time passed faster than normal and before he know it the bell rang for lunch.

Walking to the cafeteria extra slow like he does everyday, he continued to think about how his dream might of been real. When he got to the line he patiently waited in the back of the line to get his food. Once he got his food he didn't see any other open tables other than the one Erik was sitting at, so he walked over to the table and sat as far away from Erik as he could.

The sound of snapping twigs and the rustle of underbrush was what woke Felicia up. Grumbling to herself quietly, she rolled over. Immediately, she realized the texture of what she was lying upon was NOT her bed. She shot straight up, standing in the forest in her pajamas, a silk (and rather skimpy) dark green tank top with matching shorts. Which was currently covered forest debris.

Registering the fading sounds which woke up, Lici scanned her surroundings. Just before she gave up, she caught a glimpse of what might have been green hair before it disappeared. Green hair? It must have just been a trick of the forest... Except that the color was too light, and familiar. Jeez, this was going to bug her all day.

Sighing, she turned towards her house. These woods were long familiar to her, though she hadn't come here in years. She'd gone through a nature phase with her drawing a few years back. While searching for a subject worthy of her attention, she'd scoured these woods. It was easy for her to simply walk out of the forest and into the backyard of her house. As she closed the sliding glass door behind her, Lici paused, listening to the house. Satisfied that no one else was up and about, she headed up the stairs to her room.

She made quick work of changing into her normal clothes, a simple white tank top, jeans, and her favorite denim jacket, before getting ready to head out. As she reached for her doorknob, she remembered. She had no school today. Her college finals were scheduled on Wednesday and Thursday, so she had two free days. Unfortunately, one of those finals was turning in a huge research paper and being ready to present and discuss said paper... The paper which wasn't quite finished.

Grumbling to herself, Lici pulled out her laptop and set it up on her desk. Glancing at the clock on her bedside table, she decided that she'd work until the high school's last period, then head over. She hadn't visited in a while. Her final procrastination was to pull out her cell phone and text a couple of her friends.

To Shale:

Hey! I'm headin' to the high school today. Any of the group up to hangin' out? I'm borrowing the van, so we can all go do something. I'll be there, either way. Might be bringing Nancy, too. :)

With a second thought, she sent the same text to Mitchel. If one didn't see their phone, the other should, and they were always around each other. Hopefully they'd let the other know what was up.

One more text before gettin' down to business.

To Nancy:

I'm going to the high school to hang out with peoples. Wanna come? I can pick you up!

With no more excuses to delay her paper, Lici turned on her music and started working on the final draft of her assignment, grumbling to herself the whole time.

"Ya look a bit shaken there Mitchy." Of course, with that heavy Hawaiian accent, it could only be Dova Hope Stapleton, or "Dove" as most of their little group called her. She took a look around the cafeteria, taking in all the stressed looking students, obviously studying for the finals. "Why does everyone get so stressed 'bout these stup'd tests?"

"Well, I can tell you that me and Shale are NOT one of those people," Mitchel said with an air of pride, then pointed to his temple,"I've just been having trouble sleeping lately. Only a few minutes ago I was tryig to take a nap and I STILL started seeing things. And I have no idea wha..."

Beep!

Before he could finish, Mitchel was interupted by a signal from his phone, pulling it out quickly to see what it was beeping about. It seemed he had a message:

From Felicia:

Hey! I'm headin' to the high school today. Any of the group up to hangin' out? I'm borrowing the van, so we can all go do something. I'll be there, either way. Might be bringing Nancy, too. :)


Felicia, also known as Lici, was who most people considered "the girl next door". She was pretty cool though, and she was the only one in their group who could drive (as far as Mitchel knew). Showing his phone to Dove and Shale, he frowned slightly. "Seems Lici's gonna grab- urm..."borrow" the van so we can go do something after school. You guys can go, but I need to work on stuff after school, alright?" In truth, he had absolutley nothing to work on, but he didn't need some time to himself.

Dove laughed at Mitchel. "Well, I'm glad I'm friends wit' some of the only people NOT stressed 'bout these stup'd things."

Dove looked excitedly at the phone in Mitchel's hand but her smile turned to a frown as he told them he had something to do after school. Dove shook her head, seeing right through him. "No you don't," she said simply and looked down at her painted nails. They were already chipping after she had painted them the other night.

Dove quickly snatched Mitchel's phone from his hand and her fingers flew over the keys as she texted Lici back, "We'll all be there, ya can count on it." Dove placed the phone back down on the table and leaned closer to both Shale and Mitchel. "We're all goin' even if I gotta drag ya into that van." Dove leaned back and raised an eyebrow at herself. "I didn't mean that like it sounded."

Reeva glanced up, hearing the door open once more. A quick glance down at her watch confirmed her suspicions that lunch was almost over. So what was this guy doing out. Or was it a teacher? All afternoon classes are in that building though.... Her gaze flickered upwards from her apple core and thoughts to that one guy she had seen earlier. Quietly, the girl watched him apparently escape from some friends, heading outside to get away. Hm, just like someone I know. She glanced down at herself, rubbing her temple gently. If only I could know what was happening when I slept. Her head tilted to the side lightly as she was lost to her thoughts once again, her eyes staring off into the small forest behind the school.

Though, the girl's head abruptly turned back towards the boy when she heard the snap of a twig. He obviously seemed like he was attempting to come over here. Or was he just trying to get into the forest? Reeve mentally smacked herself, however their eyes locked once more. Internally she cringed, but on the outside she remained perfectly still. She nervously bit her lower lip, picking up her small messenger bag and pushing herself off the ground. The green-haired female then turned, walking away evenly from that tree towards the library. I should pick up another book. I have another small assignment I can get done.

Erik watched as Herald sat at the same table as him, he remembered that Herald wanted to drop out and join the military. A bit brave maybe, but it would be for a foolish country and besides, I hate this modern type of warfare. he thought to himself. He finished his food, and thought for a second. Debating on whether or not he should skip school, he finally made up his mind and stood up and started walking when he said, "Hey Herald! Try not to get your arm blown off in the army!" and with that he was leaving the building heading towards the woods. What he said to Herald was a joke to him, others wouldn't understand his type of humor. So Erik laughed to himself as he noticed that long awkward stare between Mitchel and Reeva. When she began walking towards the library and Mitchel bolted into the trees he laughed loudly.

He had nothing better to do then see what those more "popular" kids do out here in the woods; so he followed after Mitchel.

Dove was taken aback. She turned to Shale with a curious look but with a smile on her face. "Wha'? Did I scare 'im off?" Dove chuckled and began to follow Mitchel, but suddenly saw a flash of green. It had to be the only girl with green hair in the entire school, Reeva. She was about to follow the girl since she had never actually talked to Reeva, but decided against it when she saw that the girl was heading off to her least favorite place: the library.

Dove shook her head and was about to head back into the building when her phone vibrated in her pocket. She looked down to see that it was her dad. She opened the text message and could almost hear the disappointment in her father's text as she read it to herself. "I just got a call from the principal. You have a D in 3 of your classes." Dove cringed, but texted back quickly. "I ain't failing though." She quickly recieved another text from her dad. "When you get home, you better have at least one library book in your bag." Grumbling to herself, Dove slung her shoulder bag over her shoulder and started off toward the library.

Reeva sighed quietly to herself, not entirely concerned with all the people heading out after Mitchell. Probably his friends griping about him exiting so quickly. They don't understand he's trying to escape from then. She pushed on the doors, entering into the library and glancing around. She flashed the librarian a sheepish smile, raising her hand in a small greeting before darting behind a couple of the bookshelves. She quietly rested her finger on the binding, pulling the book back and checking the title. Perfect, looks good to me. She then got up, scurrying over to the librarian and handing her the book to check out.

The green-haired girl leaned against the counter, making idle chat. "How has your day been, Miss Tompsa?" She asked quietly as the librarian fumbled around with some pages and pens. "Oh, just fine, dear. But how is your archery doing lately? Getting any better?" Miss Tompsa gave her a small smile, then began writing. "Shh, not so loud." She glanced back, seeing that no one else was in the room. "But I'm improving every day." The librarian nodded, handing her the book. "You should be all set. Oh, but one more thing."

((Sorry if I'm stealing your NPC for a moment. :))

Dove burst through the door of the library and looked around. The only people in there were the librarian and Reeva. In any other circumstance, it would have been awkward, but instead Dove looked around and walked leisurely to one of the bookshelves. She pulled out a book without even looking at the cover and made her way to the librarian. Dove sighed and looked at Reeva as she placed the book on the counter. "How's that hair of yours treatin' ya, bra?" Dove said over to the green-haired girl casually with a smile and crossed her arms over the counter.

The librarian looked at the book curiously and then up at Dove. "If you don't mind me saying, you don't look like a big hockey girl," the librarian said with a chuckle. Dove gave the woman a questioning look before looking back down at the book cover that read, 'The Great Book of Hockey History'. Dove leaned her head back with an 'ugh' sound before bringing her head back down on her crossed arms. She stood there for a moment before looking up at the librarian with tired eyes. "Do ya know of any books 'bout maybe history 'r math 'r somethin'?" Dove asked pleadingly. The woman looked at her with pity. "I'll be right back."

As the woman left, Dove glanced around the library and then looked over at Reeva with a chuckle. "Think this is maybe the second time I've been in this place in my entire time at this school," she said in an attempt to get the girl to laugh.

Reeva glanced back at the door, watching some girl crash in. She raised her eyebrow in questioning, but the other female seemed to regain her composure and act as if not a single thing in the world mattered. She turned back to the librarian, about to ask her something before the same girl came back with a hockey book. She glanced up as she spoke, a faint rose color flooding her cheeks. "It's peachy. Don't call me bra. It sounds extremely strange, not to mention insinuates undergarments. Bra is not supposed to be used in replace of Bro because it still sounds the same. No difference really."

She fingered the small rubber mat on the counter nervously, glancing around and ready to just get out of here. The librarian commented on the book choice, and then went off to go find the girl some actually useful books. And she continued to talk to her. She merely frowned, looking at the girl incredulously. "Yes, and it isn't surprising, not to mention it may or may not show. I'm sorry, but you'll have to excuse my words and myself. Class is starting soon, and I need to catch one of the teachers before heading home." Bloody unintelligible students. Books are great. With that, she turned and headed to the door before Miss Tompsa poked her head out from behind a bookshelf. "Oh, leaving so soon. Well, I just wanted to tell you not to worry about-" She caught herself before she shared any of her secrets. "Just don't worry too much, alright!" And with that, Reeva left the library, headed towards the main buildings.

Dove nearly growled at the girl. She was making fun of her. That was it. This stupid girl was making fun of both her Hawaiian speech and now about her intelligence. Dove was speechless at the girl. On the islands, this girl would have been ridiculed for saying such things, but Dove sighed as she remembered that it wasn't the same on the main land. The girl left and the librarian came back with a more useful book about the industrial revolution and checked it out for Dove. Dove gave the woman a small smile, shouldered her bag, and push her way out of the library.

As she walked, she noticed the green-haired girl ahead of her and started to get angry again. Instead of wasting her time with confronting the girl, Dove just closed her eyes and walked leisurely the rest of the way back to the main building. She stepped inside and was greeted by a group of girls. "Hey Dove! How's life going?" Dove made her way over to the group with a smile. "Goin' good. How 're ya hangin'?" Dove was about to add 'bra', but didn't remembering how she had just been reprimanded for saying it. One of the girls, Rachel, spotted the history book in Dove's hands and chuckled. "Girl, that's the first time I've seen you carrying a book in all your years in this town." Dove felt her heart drop to her stomach. Did everyone in this school think that she was an idiot? It wasn't that she was stupid, it was just that she preferred other things rather than working. Dove knew that Rachel was only joking, so she gave her a nice, hearty laugh and began to walk back down the hallway.

Lici jerked herself upright, nearly tossing herself off of her chair in the process. Glancing over at her clock, she did a double take and squealed her displeasure. It was already ten past two.

"Nooooooo!" she wailed. Checking her paper and making sure it was saved before she closed down all her programs and shut down her computer. Checking herself over, she deemed her appearance worthy of the outside world... Ish. She dashed on light eyeliner with a practiced hand before grabbing her bag and hurtling out of her room. Descending the stairs, she barely remembered to turn and holler up the stairs.

"I'm borrowing the van. I'll be back later-ish!" Lici paused at the front door, hand hovering over the keys hanging off of the multicolored, kindergarten-looking key rack. As soon as she heard the garbled affirmative from somewhere upstairs, she continued her rush straight into the driver's seat of the dark blue, soccer-mom-mobile. It was better than a pedovan, though she'd like the extra space in the back. On second thought, no. With how much she hung around the high school, she didn't want to creep anyone out.

Starting the van, Lici whipped out her phone while waiting for the car to warm up.

To Nancy:

So sorry!!! I'm on my way now! ETA... 10-ish minutes? See ya then!

Lici then tucked her phone into the glove box. She used to check it while driving, but a near miss resulting from a bout of stupidity while texting rid her of that habit right quick. She'd learned to keep the buzzing thing as far from her as possible, but still accessible. It worked for her.

Smiling to herself, she eased the van out of her driveway and made her way to Judy's. As she arrived, she parked in the back near the employee's door to wait for Nancy.

Nancy finished up her shift by taking care of the last of the dishes from the lunch rush. As the next manager walked in, she made polite conversation as she hung up her apron. She saw the clock, and realized that she it had been past 2 for the past fifteen minutes. She wished everyone good luck for the rest of the day and headed out the back door outside. When she got out there, she was concerned when she didn't see Lici there waiting for her. She then realized that she never turned her phone back on since she turned it off earlier that day. She got out her phone and turned the power back on, noticing that there was one message received not too long ago. She barely had time to read the text all the way through before the van pulled up.

"About time!" She shouted as she climbed inside the van, playing as if she had been waiting the whole time.
