Jared Reese Wilson


Image

Image

Image


Age: 18

Role: The Nobody... Problem Child #5


~~~~~~~~~~
Hair color: Dark Brown
Eye color: Light grey
Skin tone: Tan
Build: Athletic, a bit muscular but not so much
Scars/Marks: Jared has a scar that stretches from the far right side of his forehead down to the lower part of his neck from when his brother tried to kill him

Overall appearance: He has very dark brown hair that looks like its never been brushed once in his life, it will never stay in one place unless he puts a whole container of gel on it... but then it just looks greasy, so Jared keeps it looking like a massive tangled mess.
He has light grey eyes that look somewhat crazed but at the same time angry and quite sad mixed together, they're the eyes of someone who simply doesnt know what to do, and is frustrated because of it.
The rest of his face would of been handsome if it wasnt for the long, uneven scar that begins at the top of the far right side of his forehead, and drags down to the lower middle part of his neck. Most people cant help but stare at it, since its not something that is easy to miss.
Jared is quite athletic looking and is rather tall, he stands at 6'4 and is taller than most of the people he knows.

~~~~~~~~~

Likes:
- His friends and family... no matter how cruel they are
- Anyone that will take the time to get to know him
- Cheese cake
- He wont openly admit it, but Jared has a thing for Delilah
- Running
-Making a fake beard out of dish soap bubbles

Dislikes:
- Seeing someone who he is close to hurt
- Reading
- When he is proved wrong
- Losing someone
- Being bossed around

Fears:
- His brother finding him...
- Being told he has problems
- People not believing him when he tells the truth
- The future

Habits:
- Taking the blame for things that arent his fault
- Apologizing when theres no need to
- Trusting people he shouldnt trust
- Tapping his fingers when he's nervous/impatient
- Locking the doors/windows... he's afraid that his brother might find him
- Biting his nails when he's nervous

Personality: Jared has an odd personality thats hard to figure out. He's extremely loyal to... anyone, really, and if he had to sacrifice everything he has for them, Jared would do it without a moment of thought.
He grows attached far too easily, and Jared often ends up befriending people who are just going to take advantage of him. However, despite being back-stabbed countless times, Jared fails to learn that sometimes not everyone is as nice as he see's them.
He likes to believe that theres good in everyone even if there isnt, and even though Jared knows that he's only going to get himself hurt, he'll continue to befriend the worst of people.
He prefers to take the blame for things even if it can get him in mass amounts of trouble, and strangely he doesnt mind the slightest bit, he does it with no complaints.
Jared is completely blinded by what people have told him in the past, and because of that he is unable to move on in the future.
He is hurt and confused and lost, but he still continues to put a smile on his face everyday and continue to get himself even more hurt then he was the day before.
Truly, Jared is desperately in need of someone who is able to understand and help him... yet he doesnt really want to be a part of the Problem Child program...

History: Growing up, Jared's life was always a bit odd.
He had an older brother, Noah, who never seemed quite right when it came to mental stability, but being young, Jared never understood the danger of his brother like his parents did.

He got along great with his father and considered him as his best friend up until the age of ten, which was when he walked out on the family and never came back.
Neither Jared or Noah knew why their dad left, but out of the two it was Jared who was most affected by this, while his brother just pushed the feelings of abandonment away and locked them up.
Their mother was rarely home due to her working two jobs, one in the early day and one late at night, the only time she was with her sons was in the hours of the afternoon, but normally she was sleeping, so according to Jared, she was never truly there.
School wise, Jared was the nobody who was barley earning passing marks but infact was quite smart, while Noah was a Straight-A-Student who cheated off the other kids.
Jared was constantly in trouble because he never failed to take the blame for the things his brother did, by grade ten he was famous, but not in a good way.

After taking full responsability and punishments for the crimes -yes, crimes, Noah quickly moved his trouble at school onto the streets- that his brother did, Jared was now probably the most hated person in the town that he lived in.
His mother was ashamed, but she knew that Jared would never do the things that he was blamed for, and she was the only one that actually believed that Jared could be more then what he was at the moment.
However, it was when Jared was halfway through grade twelve did things start getting dramatically worse for the two brothers and their mother.
A neighbors daughter was murdered a few days after Noah and her had a disagreement. Of course, when people were starting to suspect who the killer was, it was Jared who rushed in and confessed to something he didnt do.

Since there was no clear evidence, the case was set aside, but Jared's mother didnt give up the situation as easily.
She blamed Noah for the poor girls death, and as a result he had killed her the following day. Since Jared had witnessed this and threatened to turn his brother to the police, Noah had attempted to murder his brother as well.
When Jared was close to death and Noah asked him if he would really hand him over to the police, Jared said that he wouldnt do such a thing even if his life depended on it.
No one ever did find out who killed their mother, but everyone secretly thought it was Jared.

After that, Jared had multiple times where he could reveal the truth about his brother to the public, but he refused to, since he believed that deep down Noah really wasnt such a bad person.
A few months later, Noah left town without telling his brother where he had fled to.
Deep down, Jared was thankful that his brother was finally gone, but he was also hurt that Noah had left him just like their father did, without saying anything.
Two weeks after, Jared found himself involved with the problem child program, he wasnt sure exactly how he got himself caught in it, but he knows that he needs help...

Chloe squinted as the light of morning shone through her windows. She sighed and looked at her clock, she groaned and slid out of bed. She walked toward the bathroom, then remembering there was a attractive male in the house went back and checked herself in the mirror. Unfortunately she was a mess, she forgot to straighten her hair so fierce curls clustered all over her head. She sighed in defeat, knowing she couldn't do much with them unless they were wet. She quickly yet quietly, for fear of waking Harmony up early, went to the bathroom. Once showered she tamed it to a manageable curly texture, thanks to a ridiculous amount of conditioner. And she styled it into a curly style with a braid wrapping under it. she wrapped herself in a fluffy towel and walked to her bedroom. She strolled to her closet and drummer her fingers along her lower lip as she skimmed through it. She wanted to look warm and welcoming but not like a house wife, more independent and sexy, but not too sexy. She finally decided on a off the shoulder peach dress, and a pair of wedges, and she wore her favorite rose chain on her left ear and rose earring on her right. Once she was totally dressed she walked in Harmony's room.


Image

Harmony pushed her long blonde bangs off her face, she blinked her big brown eyes and squinted to adjust to the bright light. Her mom strolled in as she got dressed and leaned to kiss her forehead, "Morning mama," She said with a yawn.
"Morning harmony, time to get ready," Her mom said ushering harmony to the bathtub, Harmony frowned as she took her bath. She hated mornings, they were stupid, and busy, and annoying.

Once out the tub her mom styled her hair in a pretty bun with a braid in the front and a yellow bow in the back tying it all together. Her mom emerged from harmony's closet with an outfit, which harmony frowned and shook her head to.
"Harmony, sweetie," Her mom said with a sigh, since she and harmony both knew they would fight over her outfit, "Please wear this,"
Harmony shook her head and walked over to the closet, she pulled out a pretty pink dress. "I like this one," She said with a pout.
"That's a formal dress, no harmony," Her mom urged with a meaner tone than usual. So Harmony complied since her mom hardly ever refused to compromise. She dressed into the yellow polka dot shorts and white top outfit like her mom instructed with tan strapped sandals. She sighed with defeat as her mom walked into her room. She sat quietly, occasionally flinching as her mom styles her hair with a braid. Once she was finished she sighed and walked out of her room.



Image

Chloe walked out of Harmony's room and into the hallway, she walked into Dehlillah's room and opened her curtains "C'mon Lilah gotta get up," She said as she walked out the door. She then walked into Asher's room and opened up his curtains.
"Morning Asher," She said in a sing song voice, "you gotta get up, also can you make sure Jared in awake?" She said, but noticing he wasn't up yet she sighed and walked down to the kitchen.

She prepared some eggs, blueberry pancakes, and bacon and hoped the smell would wake them up. Just as she finished Harmony ran down the stairs into the kitchen and bellowed "Yeah, food!" in her version of a manly voice. Chloe sighed and made harmony a plate. She walked over by the steps and yelled upstairs "Breakfast is ready, better get down here soon or Harmony is gonna eat it all,"

She heard the door bell ring and quickly answered it. It was the caterers. She had hired them for the brunch since she preferred not to cook in mass amounts. "Um you guys can set up in the dining room, she said to the head organizer. She had hired her multiple times for different functions. That was one thing about Chloe, she hated big unorganized parties with alcohol and beer but she loved a good function or organized party with impeccable planning.

Jared Reese Wilson


Jared woke up screaming... again.
It seemed like this had become a routine like thing for him. Fall asleep, wake up screaming his head off, being terrified of something that had appeared in his dreams.
He didnt even remember what the dream -or rather, nightmare- was of, he didnt know what caused him to wake up every morning and feel like he had been seconds away from death...
Wait, no, that was wrong.
Jared did know what frightened him so much, he just preferred not to think about it.

Staring up at the perfectly white ceiling, Jared took a few moments to allow his brain to realize that he was absolutely fine... probably just a tad bit paranoid, but fine.
He was safe, completely safe with a bunch of other people who were... Jared didnt know specifically where, but were thankfully not in the very room he was in at the moment, but they were in the area.
They were nice, most of them, anyway.
Jared knew right away that some of them wouldnt be very friendly, and indeed some of them were definitely not Mr/Ms. Nice, but that was to be expected, of course, how could they be?
Most of them probably had a more fucked up past than him.

Jared, also thankfully, wasnt at home... or was he? This place practically was home now, he would be there for awhile, so yes, he was at home, a second one. He was glad he was at the better of the two.

Sitting up, Jared took a quick look around his room. He couldnt help but feel a bit disappointed to find that it was still a bit messy with clothes scattered across the floor, but then again, Jared hadnt bothered to clean the room at all, and he didnt expect some sort of magical cleaning fairy would come in and do it for him.
Sighing, Jared pulled himself out of bed and quickly put on a clean pair of clothes... he hoped they were clean, anyway, with almost every piece of clothing he owned laying on the floor, Jared had no way of knowing what had been recently washed or not.

Next, Jared took the time to do his best to try and brush his hair in a way that it didnt look so... well, like he didnt look like he just rolled out of bed. However, he failed at this, and four minutes later Jared's hair looked more tangled than it did before.
"Terrific." He muttered, staring at his reflection in the mirror.
Jared tried to avoid the next part of his morning routine nearly every day, but for some reason he always found himself staring sadly at the ugly scar that marked his face, the one thing about him that people actually noticed.
He hated it, he hated how he had gotten it, he hated how people looked at it, Jared didnt want the hideous marking. He didnt want the reminder of... Jared shook his head, immediately blocking the thought.

For a second he considered going back to bed, and then Chloe's voice sounded from downstairs, and Jared decided that he want some breakfast, though he imagined Harmony might of eaten most of it already.
He walked downstairs and passed through the dining room. Jared was surprised to see people setting the table and decorating everything in such a way that it looked like they were expecting The Queen or something to come over for an afternoon tea, he had to admit that it looked nice, though.
Jared entered the kitchen and served himself a plate of two blueberry pancakes and a few pieces of bacon. Before he actually ate anything, let alone sit down at the table, Jared said a quick good morning to Harmony and Chloe.
Asher's probably sleeping... He guessed, taking a seat at the table.
"...Where's Delilah?" Jared asked, hoping the question didnt seem odd.

Asher stifled a yawn. He was only vaguely aware of Chloe breezing through his room, opening the curtains, and telling him to wake up. Once she left, he buried himself deeper under his comforter. The room he stayed in had been done in light colors, mostly white, and when the curtains were opened the sun was relentless. Claire must've known this. Her tactic in waking him. With a groan and the release of his kept yawn, Ash threw the covers off and placed his feet on the ground. His long, graceful fingers quickly ran through his hair trying desperately to get it to settle. No such luck.

Asher padded to the bathroom. Usually he would hop into the shower for a quick wash, dress, fix his hair, and be downstairs for whatever breakfast had been prepared. Today was different though. Ash had prepared for today the night before, taking a shower and laying out his clothes. Chloe had reminded him time and time again to dress nicely for the brunch and he'd set out clothes he thought fit the bill. He'd even gone as far as to shower the night before to save more time this morning. Usually he indulged in a morning jog, but had decided to forego that as well. Instead, he wet his fingers and combed his hair into a fashionably messy style. The kind of look that said 'I woke up like this' while still complimenting his features. He dressed quickly only glancing in the mirror briefly before leaving his own room.

A quick check into Jared'd room told Ash that his assigned 'Problem Child' was already out and about. Asher actually liked Jared. Sure, the kid was quiet and reserved, but Asher had liked him almost immediately. He really wanted to teach Jared to stand up for himself and that sometimes it's best to put yourself before others. They weren't quite there yet, but Ash had no reservations that he'd be able to get through to Jared. At least he hoped he wouldn't.

It was then that Asher heard Chloe's call from the kitchen. "Breakfast is ready, better get down here soon or Harmony is going to eat it all." Ash laughed under his breath. He doubted the five-year-old could eat a breakfast prepared for everyone in the house. "Har-Bug!" Ash called from the top stair as he began to descend. "Did you save me some food? At least a crumb, right?" he asked her teasingly before sweeping her into a hug. Things with him and Chloe had escalated pretty quickly and things were never easy, but he fell in love with Harmony almost right away. The little girl could always bring a smile to his face no matter what the situation.

Still holding Harmony in his arms, Asher went around to where Chloe was standing and gave her a quick peck on the cheek. "Morning." he told her before setting Harmony down and setting about making himself a plate. "You're going to spoil brunch you keep feeding me like this." he told her jokingly.

With eggs, pancakes, and bacon stacked onto his plate, Asher took a seat at the table next to Jared. "Good morning." he told the younger boy. "Sleep okay?" he asked genuinely. Asher had known that Jared was having some trouble sleeping and always made it a point of conversation in the mornings. The caterers provided enough noise with their hustle and bustle that their conversation wouldn't be overheard, should Jared want to keep it private. Knowing the guy, that was a very real possibility.

Delilah Rose Nox




Delilah trembled as she slept, curled into a tight ball with her arms wrapped around her body. A little white kitten with bright emerald green eyes nuzzled her cheek, causing Lila to jerk back in shock and fear. Her gentle blue eyes flew open and she realized a second too late that she was falling off her bed. As she slid off the mattress, she grabbed onto her sheets in an attempt to stay on. She ended up falling with a loud thud, with her blankets following and ending up covering her completely. The little kitten peeked over at her curiously, as she rolled over and fell back asleep.

"C'mon Lila, get up." Chloe called to the mass of sheets on the floor, waking Lily up again. She groaned and reluctantly kicked the blankets off of her body. She yawned and sat up, glancing over st the door that her sister had come in by.
With a sigh, she got up and pulled her wild mane of curls into a loose ponytail. Not bothering to get dressed quite yet, she left her room in a lacy tank top and shorts. She knew her sister would probably snap at her to get dressed, but she would do that once she was fully awake. Anyways, the mentors and 'At risk' teens wouldn't be coming over for a while. Glancing over her shoulder, she let out a short whistle. "Come on, Lucy." She called, and the little white kitten with bright green eyes hopped onto her shoulder with ease.

Lila padded down the stairs, chuckling as she saw the parade of people setting up the brunch. Her sister always led everything being completely organized. She walked into the kitchen with a bright smile. "Good morning." She softly played with one of her niece's curls affectionately, and glanced over at everyone who was awake. Lily adored Harmony, and was often guilty of spoiling her.
She stood next to the sitting Jared, resting her arm on his head gently.

When her phone buzzed in her pocket, Lila jumped in surprise. Chuckling at herself, she pulled out her phone. Her face immediately lost the bright radiance it had. Stepping back, she pursed her lips and glanced at the scar on her hand. "I. . . Uhm I have to visit a friend soon. I might have to leave a little early."

Jared Reese Wilson


Jared was just about to eat the blueberry pancakes when his Mentor, Asher, came into the kitchen and after speaking with Chloe and Harmony, took a seat beside him.
"Good morning... Sleep okay?" Asher asked, not for the first time.
Jared paused and briefly glanced at the other people in the room, "Yeah, fine... thanks." He replied after a few seconds, fixing his eyes back on the plate of food infront of him.
Truthfully Jared's sleep had been anything but fine, but he could tell Asher about that later... just not while other people could hear.

Once again, Jared was about to begin eating his breakfast when Delilah made an appearance.
"Good morning." She said, and Jared looked up to see her playing with Harmony's hair.
Jared allowed himself to slightly smile, from the moment he saw her Jared had liked Lila... well, he liked a lot of people the moment he saw them, but Delilah was just... different.
"Morning." Jared said when she stood beside him. He was going to say more, but was interrupted by her phone.
Jared looked back at the pancakes on his plate, Stupid phone...
Delilah stepped back, and Jared expected what she would say next,
"I. . . Uhm I have to visit a friend soon. I might have to leave a little early." Of course.

Chloe smiled as Jared padded down the stairs. She smiled at him and ruffled his hair a little. "Hey, don't mind the staff, you'll get used to it. Since me and Delilah usually host functions for the program." She shrugged and walked to the backdoor, watching the staff as they set up everything for the brunch. She smiled thankfully to them then sighed and pushed a hair off her face.

"Where's Dehlilah," Jared asked awkwardly, making Chloe smile.
She smirked and placed a hand on her hip. "Don't worry she'll be down soon," She said before grumbling under her breath, "Or I'll drag her out of bed, I swear her and Asher would wake up at noon if I let them." She composed herself and smiled again.

She was about to yell at Asher and Dehlilah when she heard him at the top of the stairs. "Har-Bug! Did you save me some food? At least a crumb, right?" He said jokingly pulling her into a hug.
"Asher! She's eating." Chloe protested with a pout. To which Asher completely ignored.

She was about to whine about him getting Harmony riled up when he gave her a peck on the cheek, making her blush. She sighed, a little upset that Asher so naturally fit into Her and Chloe's life. "Morning." He said sliding past her and making a plate "You're going to spoil brunch you keep feeding me like this." he told her jokingly.

She looked down, "I like cooking," She mumbled, "Anyway I'm glad your dressed," She added with a half smile as Asher sat down next to Jared and began talking to him.

Chloe tapped her foot impatiently as she waited for Delilah. When her sister came down the steps, in a lacy tank and shorts. She sighed deeply "Delilah, what the hell are you wearing?" She asked "Tell me your not wearing that to brunch," She rolled her eyes, "Actually I have the perfect Outfit for you, and it goes with mine?" She added with a smile, since she and Delilah used to coordinate their outfits when they were kids. She pulled a dress out of a bag that was like hers except it was a ivory that complimented Delilah's pale skin and pale hair, making her look like an angel. While hers was a peach color that complimented her tanned skin and golden hair. The sisters looked very much alike with their wild blonde curls and stunning blue grey eyes. However Delilah inherited their mothers pale skin and their fathers naturally pale blonde hair and Chloe had their fathers golden skin and her mothers golden hair. So together they almost looked like a angel and a goddess. Though Chloe envied her sisters slender body, and her innocent vibe. While she had a more sensual air about her and she inherited her father's side of the family's curvy figure.

She gently stood behind Delilah and did her hair, which was in a ponytail. She felt no need to ask, since she walways styled everyone's hair. She quickly turned it into a bun with a braid surrounding it.
She quickly did a braid around her hair next in a loosefishtail. "Ok now get dressed in that dress and you'll look insanely pretty."

Just as she was about to enthuse about the outfit Delilah spoke "I. . . Uhm I have to visit a friend soon. I might have to leave a little early."
Chloe's face fell slightly, making her smile less bright and more forced, "Your... your leaving?" She asked quietly. "Your leaving the brunch.... early?" She said though the last part came out like a whisper.
She sighed and glanced at the clock,"Our guest will be arriving in a few minuets," She walked toward the the back door and glanced back at her " I wish you'd stay and help," Then she walked out back.


Image


Harmony pouted as her mom walked out the door and tugged at Asher's shirt "Why is mama sad?" She asked staring up at him with her big brown eyes. She pouted and just as quickly as she asked she changed the subject "Mama wouldn't let me go swim today, she put a blanket thing on the pool and wouldn't let me wear my pretty princess dress." She tapped her chin ad if she was thinking and said "I think it's Mr. Chris's fault, whenever he calls mama cries." She said with a frown.

She balled her tiny hand into a fist and pretended to punch the air "If I ever see him I'm gonna do this and that," She said imitating a kick, which made her stumble a little. Then beamed a dimpled smile at them and got back up.

She loved Aunt Dee, and Asher, and Jar-Bear. Asher made her mama happy and he made her mama smile. But Mama never lets her call Asher daddy. She glanced as her mom came back inside and sat in a stool, well more like she jumped around in the stool. "Dad.. I mean Asher, can I have a cookie" She said seeing the look her mom gave her.


Image

"Harmony I told you, you can't call him that, Asher isn't your daddy," Chloe said with a straight face, picking Harmony up and grabbing a cookie out the cabinet and handing it to her. She knew Asher would be mad that she said that but it was the truth. Asher isn't Harmony's dad. She wished that she met Asher before she met Chris but she didn't. I mean she knew him for two years now. Since he was a problem child last year but the fact of the matter was, she didn't want him to get too close to harmony. Just so he could leave when things got tough. She glanced at him and turned away quickly. All that could come from her and Asher was hurt. And she couldn't handle hurt. Not again, not ever. She realized the time and said "Clean your plates everybody should be arriving in like a few minuets."

Jared Reese Wilson


Finally, Jared was able to eat his breakfast. He wasnt that hungry anymore, so he found himself picking at the pancakes and barley eating any bacon. Once what was on the plate was pretty much finished -and by finished, he hardly ate any of it- Jared stood up and scraped what was left into the garbage, then began to wash the dish.
When that was done, Jared said a quick thanks to Chloe for making breakfast, and he apologized for not finishing it.
She really was a good cook, much better then Jared, who stuck to putting bread in the toaster and calling it a meal.
After that, Jared decided that he'd wander around the Nox's house until the brunch/meeting, whatever it was, started.

They had a nice home, it was a lot better than Jared's, anyway. Beautifully decorated, everything looked expensive.
He found himself wishing that he could of grown up in a place like theirs... in a place where everything was so... normal.
Of course, the Nox's probably werent the definition of normal, since they had a bunch of people with weird issues and even weirder backgrounds under their responsibility... but still, the Nox's were lucky.
Extremely lucky, to have such a good life.

For probably the third time, Jared was jealous of the Nox's. In his eyes, they had everything, money, a good life, people who cared about them, family... they werent anything like the people they were trying to help, they werent like Jared, they were better.
Far better.
Jared found himself in the living room, he sat down on one of the couches and let out a frustrated sigh.
For probably the sixth time since he became part of the Problem Children program, he was angry with himself.
For One, being jealous of the people who were doing nothing but good, and for Two, for allowing himself to think like that. ... He didnt really have any other reasons, just the two.

Jared pushed away the thoughts and began tapping his fingers on the arm of the chair, when were the others going to get here?

Asher's conversation with Jared was brief, but he instantly caught onto the younger man's hesitation to talk. A conversation best saved for later Ash realized. He should have known better than to bring it up in such an open place anyway.

When Delilah made her entrance, Ash gave her a brief nod by way of 'good morning' and continued shoveling the large breakfast into his mouth. When her phone went off and the woman quickly announced she'd be leaving, Asher knew Chloe would be upset. He'd wait for it to happen and then comfort her the best he could. He knew Chloe would be even more upset since she'd gone through all the trouble of matching their dresses and planning the brunch down to the last detail. Asher wasn't the least bit surprised when she walked out back. He knew she'd need the moment to gather herself and preferred those few moments alone. So, instead of following her, he stayed inside with Harmony.

When the little girl asked why her mommy was sad, Asher was literally at a loss for words. "She's not sad, so much as overwhelmed. She just has a lot to do and think about, Har-Bug. She'll be just fine." he told her. Harmony continued talking to him about her morning. "Mama wouldn't let me go swim today, she put a blanket thing on the pool and wouldn't let me wear my pretty princess dress. I think it's Mr. Chris's fault, whenever he calls mama cries. If I ever see him I'm gonna do this and that." Asher felt the old familiar sensation of anger boiling in his chest. Chris was not someone he liked, and for obvious reasons. The fact that he'd made Chloe cry pissed him off. Not wanting to upset Harmony, he laughed as she imitated what she'd do if she ever came across Chris. "I'm sure you would. And I bet Mommy's saving your pretty, pink dress for a special occasion." he told her, a smile still on his lips.

When she called his 'Dad', it melted his heart. He knew that Harmony wasn't his, but he treated just as well. He loved that little girl. Before he could even answer her request for a cookie, Chloe slipped back in and interfered, chastising Harmony for calling his by the name. Asher turned away from both of the girls, not wanting Harmony to see the anger he couldn't hide. He knew just as well as she that he wasn't the father, but Harmony needed a father-figure and if he provided that, then why did she have to fight it so much. Another conversation to be saved for later, he decided before stalking off to his room, leaving his plate where it sat on the table. "Call me when brunch is ready." he tossed over his shoulder as he retreated.

Chloe watched as Asher stormed off to his room. She smiled apologetically at Jared and thought of a quick excuse "He's fine, probably just grumpy," She added at the end. She set Harmony down and padded up the stairs after him.
"Ash?" She said quietly at his door. She always called him Ash when she was worried or when she knew she did something wrong. She wasn't sure why but it soothed him a little. She found him in his room and stood in front of him. "I'm sorry, it's just." She sighed trying to find the right words. She gently ran her hands through his hair a few times.
"I didn't mean it like that its just, you may think you want to be like a father to Harmony, but what happens when you have to leave? Or when I'm being a total bitch ,or Harmony's too much for you. Then what?" She flopped on his bed and gazed at his ceiling. "Harmony has never had a father figure. She doesn't even know who her father is. I can't risk her getting used to you and then you leave. I mean c'mon Ash. What even are we? Were not official, yet your hell bent on acting like the perfect family, and were not. Here's the facts Ash: I got knocked up in high school, harmony's father tried to kill me multiple times, Harmony is around bad influences all the time because of this program. Who the hell knows how Harmony is going to end up?" She turned her back to him and frowned. "That's a risk I'm not ok with, why do you even want to be Harmony's dad? So you can get tied down to a chick with a baby?"

She flinched a little, thinking about Chris. She didn't mean to but she automatically held her knees and shut her eyes so tight it almost hurt. She hiked her dress up to her waist frantically as if to see if the bruises were gone and it was just a nighmare. To her dismay the multi colored bruise of her thigh was still there. She glanced at her other perminant bruise, a ugly red bruise that was on her hip. Images flashed through her mind, of her lying on the cold apartment floor, bleeding from the mouth, ribs broken, unable to move or even scream for help. She squeezed her knees tighter.

Delilah Rose Nox




Delilah smiled softly as her sister gave her a dress, and did her hair without any warning. She leaned back slightly, used to her sister doing her hair for her. When she was done, she turned and smiled at her sister. "Thanks! You look wonderful, by the way."
Delilah flinched when she saw the look on her sister's face when she told her that she would have to leave early. She glanced over at Jared for support, but he looked a bit disappointed too. "Well, it's not like I'm completely skipping it! I just might have to leave the brunch like five minutes early. And that's if my. . . friend calls early. It will probably be quick anyways." Lila flinched a little as she said friend, and glanced down as though she was disappointed in herself. "It's really important." She murmured, avoiding meeting anyone's glaze. Her thumb ran over the scar she had on her palm thoughtfully, pursing her lips. If Chloe knew, she would be so upset.

With a sigh, she turned away from her family as everyone finished their breakfast and started to clear out. Lucy, her kitten, followed Jared out of the room, happily prancing behind him as he wondered the house. When he sat down in the living room, she jumped into his lap and rubbed her little white body against his hand, gazing at him with her stunning emerald eyes.
Lila headed off to her room and changed into the dress her sister gave her, admiring the wonderful job she had done on her hair when she glanced at herself in the mirror. She quickly put on a little makeup -she never wore much anyways- and pulled on some white flats that went well with her dress.

Delilah headed downstairs, and let out a soft whistle for her kitten so she could put her in her room while the guests came. Much as she loved her cat, she could be a little too friendly. When she didn't come running, her brow furrowed and she went off to look for the little kitten.
When she spotted her sitting in Jared's lap in the living room, she chuckled and leaned against the doorway. "Sorry about her- she acts like I don't give her any attention. If she's being a bother, I can bring her up to my room. She doesn't really understand that some people just do not like cats." Lila offered Jared a bright smile, as she watched the two.

Jared Reese Wilson


At first Jared didnt know that it was just the kitten that had leaped onto his lap, actually, he didnt know what it was. He flinched, and looked at the cat in surprise.
"Oh, uh... hey... kitty..." He said, not sure why he was talking to an animal.
Normally the things didnt seem to like him that much, it was like they knew he was bad, and they stayed away because of it.
Jared awkwardly patted his hand against the kittens -what was her name, Lucy?- head, and frowned when she didnt run away.
"You're not supposed to like me, Cat." He said, deciding that Cat would be the nickname he'd call her by. It was easier to remember than Lucy, "This is the part where you hiss at me, then run away, get it?"
Cat just stared up at him blankly.
"Right, you dont know English." Jared muttered, "You should... wouldnt that be-" Jared stopped talking as soon as he realized he was talking to a cat.
He was actually somewhat amused, "Ha, I could be a cat whisperer, huh?"
Lucy didnt show any sign she was listening, but then again, she was a cat.
Jared frowned, "...Right, gotcha."

"Sorry about her- she acts like I don't give her any attention." Delilah's voice came from the entrance to the living room, Jared looked up to see the Nox girl looking... well, pretty good.
Lila smiled, the continued speaking,
"If she's being a bother, I can bring her up to my room. She doesn't really understand that some people just do not like cats."

Jared shrugged, "Cat's fine, I think she likes me," He said, and as soon as the words left his motuh, the white kitten jumped off his lap and returned to Lila.
Jared frowned, "Or, you know, maybe not. Its understandable."
