Senses and Souls

Introduction

SENSES AND SOULS






~INTRO~





Image Souls are inside of everyone. They're what create us, they're our core. And something that every soul harbors are senses. The classic five senses; commonly referred to as touch, sight, taste, smell, and sound. Touch is the feeling of a warm blanket, resting against your frigid body. Sight is observing the things around you. Taste is the flavor you experience when stuffing your face with your favorite foods. Smell is the wonderful scent you receive when sniffing your favorite flower. Sound is what you hear after lightning; the roar of the thunder.

Every soul has these senses. No soul is so much more powerful than the other. And because of this, a balance is created. But what happens when that balance is disturbed?





~BACKGROUND~





Image




Souls. They're what make us up, what we're composed of. Souls are our life force, our fuel. With each soul comes a time limit; a clock. Every soul lasts for a specified amount of time, whether it be two days or one hundred years. This determines how long you will live. The theory is that with each passing day, your soul grows tired. It begins to run out of fuel. And as someone's fuel runs out, as do their senses. Their senses dull until they disappear, or do not work anymore. In other words, the older a person is, the more their senses fade. But that does not mean someone with low fuel cannot have highly developed senses, or vise-versa.

Your time limit depends on how much fuel your soul harbors. Your soul's set amount of fuel is random. It's a game of luck... they say there's no way out of your soul's time limit . Once you're born, it is set for the rest of your life.

But... there's a rumor. A rumor that souls can be consumed, that they can be stolen. And a particular individual found out that this rumor is all too true. They call this individual "The Eternal One." The Eternal One figured out how to harvest someone's soul, to take their fuel for himself and expand his own time limit. For years, this "Eternal" figure sucked out the souls of young ones, sucking up their fuel like a vacuum cleaner and leaving them dead with nothing but a corpse left. The Eternal One thirsted for immortality, for power. And The Eternal One was confident that he'd find his power through the five senses.



Image




But he was wrong. There was more to the senses than most humans realized. The senses were not just there, they weren't just paired with souls randomly. In fact, the senses were controlled, or managed, by five essences, as they're called. These essences are in fact, the five senses. Each one is highly advanced in one sense, far more advanced than any ordinary soul could dream of. The essences were to regulate to the five senses, to create balance. They were to decide what levels of sense each soul would have. As mentioned before, the amount of set fuel a soul has does not affect the set development for the five senses. Someone can be born with five days to live and have the sharpest senses known to man.

Due to the five essences, sucking someone's soul did not mean you were stealing their senses as well. This was because the five essences control the senses; it isn't random like a set amount of fuel is. The only way to steal senses from a soul is if the essences are destroyed. Permanently.

Perhaps the soul of the essence had not to be consumed, but annihilated?



Image




That's what The Eternal One concluded. Though an essence is much different than a soul. An essence lives inside a soul, and only those who control the senses have an essence in the first place. There is no known way to destroy an essence, or kill, if you will. Souls are easy to destroy. All they have to do is run out of fuel. But an essence can find a new soul in which to live. The Eternal One knew the five would be hard to get rid of, that just consuming their soul would not be enough.

He not only sucked their souls, but he burned their bodies, he erased all memories of the essences, he made sure he did a tidy and secure job, but it wasn't enough. The Eternal One managed to extinguish their souls and histories, but not their essences. Though the essences were highly damaged when he destroyed the souls, so before they could find a new soul, they needed to heal. Over the time that they healed, The Eternal One reigned. Though the essences were still there, they could not control the five senses. So, with each soul The Eternal One took, his senses enhanced. Over the thousands of years it took for the essences to heal, the more powerful The Eternal One became.

He took over everything. Arcinn was under his command, and it wasn't like anyone else knew how to consume souls. The Eternal One kept it very secret after he found out himself.

For hundreds and thousands of years, he reigned. There was no stopping him. The only way he'd be defeated was by the five essences, but they were busy resting. Would they ever recover?




~PLOT~





The Plot starts when the essences are finally done resting, and find their way to a new soul. As soon as the essences find a new soul, The Eternal One knows. This is because he can only suck a soul's fuel now, not their sense development. He quickly realizes in order to prevail he must extinguish the essences once more, but he must find out how to do so permanently. And of course, he's going to have some spare souls who are willing to help him find and eliminate them.

The essences don't remember anything from their past; they think they're just any other soul. And they look like it, too. They're just five modern-day friends, all attending the same college. They've known each other for a while now, and it was only a month ago that the essences took place in their souls. Only recently have they started to notice their enhanced senses, though they have no idea what the cause is... yet.






~CHARACTERS~






Character slots can be reserved in the OOC. It is in fact first come first serve, though reservations only last 3 days. W.I.P.s are fine, as long as you finish them 2 days after you enter your character. Before reserving keep in mind that you are committing to this roleplay. Please do not abandon your fellow roleplayers, whether it be by quitting on your character or lacking in posts. No one likes a dead roleplay, and that's what causes it! [Anime face claims only, please.]

The roles with * next to them MUST be filled. ALSO: For now, males only, please. :)





~THE ETERNAL ONE AND ALLIES~





[img]...[/img]
*| Svend | Male | The Eternal One | | Taken by Senpai ! |

The Eternal One has power over all of the senses and is nearly immortal. With each soul consumed, more time to his limit and fuel is gained. See explanation of sense power(s) further down. You're free to tweak the powers to your content! My explanations are simply guidelines.


[img]...[/img]
| Name | Gender | Investigator | Face Claim | Reserved! |

You could also call this person the hunter. He's the one who's supposed to be tracking down the essences. He specializes in not only finding people, but doing so without being detected. But trying to track the five essences in silence may be a different story...


Image
| Xyon | Male | Assassin | Kuroh Yatogami | Taken by Fable ! |

The Assassin is the person who can get the job done, clean and fast. He's a great weapons-man, and once again, can easily perform his job in secret. When you need someone to 'disappear', this is the guy to call. Not looking to kill? Kidnapping is just as easy.


*Side note* More jobs like these can be added, no problem. Just ask in the OOC, stating the role and a brief description.







~THE FIVE ESSENCES~




*| Name | FC | Essence of Touch | Face Claim | Open![color]|

The essence of Touch starts with texture. When you touch something, you can feel the scratches on a scarred surface. You can tell when something's been polished just by touching it. Like every other essence, the Essence of Touch has an enhanced sense--- (touch, obviously). Even the littlest of dents this essence can feel. The tiniest bumps and spots they can feel. And along with that, the Essence of Touch can never forget a surface.

But let's take this a little farther. Texture can reveal a lot about an object. It can reveal its past scars and where it's been. It can also show you a person's past, what they've been through, and events with great significance that they've been through, all in one touch.
[You may tweak this to your content, it's basically a guideline for the power.]


Image
[color=red]*
| Bianca Willis | Female | Essence of Sight | Natsume Asako | Taken by Ruth Soul <3 ! |

Look under the powers section! ---> Essence of Sight's Power.


Image
*| Amu Ginny | Female | Essence of Taste | Ichigo | Taken by StrawberryGashes99 ! |

Look under the powers section! ---> Essence of Taste's Power.


Image
*| Name | Male | Essence of Smell | Kazehaya Shouta | Reserved by CressxThorne ! [Reserved on 12/20/14. 2 days left.] |

It's not rare that people spray some kind of freshener in their house to get rid of a disgusting smell; to mask it. And it's very often that people use lies to hide the truth... to mask it. The Essence of Smell can actually see through lies (but that doesn't mean they can see the truth!). Also, since Smell was originally meant to detect danger, food, and things alike, the Essence of Smell can also 'sense' danger. Or at least, they can smell danger. It comes more as an instinct than a smell.

The Essence of Smell can also smell emotions... and this idea was inspired by the commonly known phrase, "I can smell your fear." In other words, the Essence of Smell can smell your fear. And you happiness, your depression, and your anger.

This Essence also has enhanced smelling capabilities. [Feel free to tweak to your heart's content! Though try not to make it like taste... I had a hard time coming up with the powers for these... because they're basically the same thing.]


Image
*| Gwendolyn Demitriou | Female | Essence of Sound | Hakaze Kusaribe |Taken by Kura Ravengade ! |

Look under the powers section! ---> Essence of Sound's Power.

"OVER HERE, YOU DUMB-ASS! I'M WIDE OPEN!" Ellie's blood was boiling, her adrenaline was pumping, and her teammate was being, in her eyes, a complete idiot. She was open, they were right next to the soccer goal, and everyone knew Ellie was the best when it came to scoring. That's why the coach had on her on offense in the first place. That's why everyone passed it to her when she was open and by the goal. And yet, there was her teammate, who knew she was open, not passing it to her. He was just dribbling the ball back and forth like a moron! She could feel the sense of frustration inside of her growing, the irritatingly persistent sense of anger was unavoidable. If she didn't get to kick that ball soon, she'd end up kicking one of the opponents... On purpose.

Ellie watched as her teammate got in position to kick the ball. No you idiot, they're going to steal the---- NYGAHHHH! MORON! She watched in agony as she was helpless to stop the other team from stealing the ball. And as she sprinted across the field in hopes of catching up, she felt her breath running out and her legs beginning to slow down. She couldn't bear to run anymore, and maybe it would be better if she stayed midfield for now... If her team managed to get the ball back, then they'd have to have someone to pass it to, not to mention she had to get her breath back or her asthma might start to act up... Ellie found herself panting near the middle of the field, her muscles tense as she watched the ball in utter suspense. You've got this guys. Come on, come on... She held her breath and poured all of her hope into the hands of her team. If they won this game, she'd buy them all complementary, high-quality, expensive blueberry muffins from the new bakery not too far away from here. Maybe a mile or two? She could smell them all the way from the soccer field. In fact, her mouth was beginning to water...

NO!

Ellie felt her heart sink as she watched the opposing team score a goal. It was only seconds later that the whistle blew, signaling the end of soccer practice. Her team had lost, by one point! One stupid point... "Alright, nice work everyone. Remember, be here Tuesday. Also, Ellie, can I talk to you for just a sec?" She took a sharp breath and turned to her team's coach, otherwise known as Aaron. A nice man, she had to admit, but an annoying one at times. He always told her to try and be nicer to her teammates, but... They were the ones who were giving her a reason to yell at them! And she was only giving them her feedback; helping them improve. What was so wrong with that? She was only trying to help. Ellie nodded in response to his request to talk, turning to him with a bit of a fake smile.

"Listen, I know you're working on this, but you've gotta be nicer to everyone else. Treat people how you want to be treated." Aaron bellowed. In return, Ellie only gave him another nod, before walking off. She'd had enough soccer for today... and maybe for the rest of her life. She wasn't sure. If playing soccer meant losing again, then perhaps she'd do better without it.

"Whatever," Ellie had told herself. "Once everyone else gets here, I'm sure I'll cool off..." Shaking her head, she made an A-line for the park bench. She was expecting her friends in a little while; Bianca had managed to convince them to go to the park with her. She claimed that there were only so many days left until snow began to fall, therefore she had to get out as much as possible to see the birds, and the park was the perfect place to do that. And so, they'd agreed that they would all meet at the park around eleven o'clock on a Saturday, in other words, now. Ellie could never understand why Bianca hated snow so much, but maybe some mysteries weren't meant to be solved. Waving off the topic, she found herself lying on the park bench in wait of her four friends. "They should be here any second now..."


[Bleh, sorry for the rushed post. I would've posted for Bianca, too, but I'm in a bit of a hurry, so... yeah. Anyway, post away~!]

"Oh, where is the park again!?" Amu scurried along the crowded streets, eyes scanning the crumbled up piece of paper which showed the directions on how to get to the area of the park her small group of friend was supposed to meet at. Wind blew her short-ish red hair over her face, causing her running to swerve due to lack of sight. Often she'd run into a stranger, and being to shy to even speak, she'd bow her head as an apology for a quick second before realizing she had to continue running in order to get to the park before the cookies she had baked her friends got cold.

Luckily she decided to wear comfortable red leggings under her Long black skirt with the suspender straps so she wouldn't have to worry about the wind blowing up her skirt and allowing a stranger to catch a glimpse of her undergarments. Amu never handled embarrassment very well, and if something like that were to happen, she'd never make it to the park on time. Or at all for that matter.

She found the park by cutting a shortcut though a children's playground, filled with the young kids who's mother brought them there for the day on Saturday. Amu remembered when she was young and her papa would do the same. The though brought a smile to her thin, strawberry colored lips. It was so cute how her papa would be the only man standing in a field with many mothers. Amu never noticed, really, until the rare bully would step up to pick on younger kids. Papa was always there to save little Amu. And the reason behind her smile rested on those fond memories, like most smiled do. Amu loved to see other people smile just as much as she loved to smile herself.

Pushing happy family memories to the side, and kept running deeper and deeper though the tree's in the forest, constantly checking the paper to insure she was going the right direction. She started to lose her breath from her long and nerve-racking run, and it didn't help that the air was chilly from the oncoming winter. The rush of her movements always strained more during the cold, a simple scientific explanation Amu knew was the reason why, if only she could remember what her teacher had said about the topic.

Amu was surprised to see only one other person their, but also relieved that she wasn't late and didn't cause a fuse. Ellie lay on a bench in wait, and without disturbing her, Amu slowly walked towards her, trying to step on a trig or two so Ellie knew she was coming. Amu grinned shyly at Ellie, greeting her as politely as she could, then taking a seat on the ground next to the bench and leaning her head on the side. She wasn't going to trouble Ellie in sitting up when she already looked to comfortable where she lay.

"Hi! G-good morning, Ellie. She suddenly recalled the bag of sweets she had hand-made the night before for everyone to share. She reached her hand inside her 'Domo-kun' backpack and received a little wooden box covered in a yellow piece of cloth. The smell of chocolate drifted though the air as she untied the knot that sealed the freshness of the treats. "Want some?" It was always polite to ask and not just randomly hand it to a person who may/may not be hungry.

"Punch today in the face, and tomorrow in the -
Wait, this might be a G-rated audience. Um ... Foot?"





"Demitriou! You can't just walk around dressed like that! You will certainly give the rest of the band a bad name!"

"Oh come on Yu-Yu - don't be such a stick-in-the-mud - lighten up!"

"I already told you - don't call me Yu-Yu! My name is Okyo!"

Snorting at his defensive nature, Tatum rolled off of the couch in the official Immortal's Heart lounging room. His guitar lolled with him but he took great care not to bump it against the floor as he pushed up and smirked, smoothing the hair back from his face. Approaching Okyo, he clapped a hand on the nerdy manager, who jolted a bit and jostled his glasses before reaching up to straighten them. He squared his shoulders and pushed them up by the center, perfectly portraying the 'intelligent, managerial' type.

"I'll have you know that I am not a stick-in-the-mud. I am simply watching out for the band's best interests, and by Demitriou dressing like-like-like that," he stammered, a rosy hue lifting to his cheeks as he pointed a trembling finger at the young woman, who was currently sitting with one leg propped up on the stool that she sat on and the other leg crossed underneath in a very guy-like fashion, chomping down on a delicious chocolate long-john. She glanced up as she heard her name, having been tuning out Okyo's ranting, half a doughnut dangling from her mouth.

"What?" she asked around a mouthful of doughy deliciousness. At the action, Okyo feigned a faint before catching himself. "Oh, woe is me - whatever shall I do with you!" he cried dramatically, the back of his hand pressed hysterically over his forehead.

"Will you two take pity on the poor guy?"

Tatum turned his face to the side, his eyes glinting as he caught Anastasia, who was currently dipping the tips of her drumsticks into a bottle of wood hardener. A cigarette dangled from the corner of her lips and she was leaning forward, her legs perched outward in yet another man-like way. When Okyo saw her position, her nearly fainted again, his lips sputtering out nonsense about how they 'were beautiful young women with successful careers and lives ahead of them and should take care with their appearance and not do anything or dress in any fashion that could otherwise hint at an easy hit', or whatever that all meant.

Stifling a sigh, Gwendolyn pushed herself up, stretching, her joints popping as she did so.

"Listen, Okyo - you aren't a stick-in-the-mud, but you do need to lighten up. How can we expect a true and real reaction from our fans if we don't present to them our true and real selves in return?"

Okyo went quiet at that, his lips pressed together, the gears obviously turning in his head. Finally he straightened, brushing off his suit and once again adjusting his glasses, as he so often did.

"Very well ... I see that you have a point, Demitriou. But just this once will I allow it to slide!" With that, their manager turned and waltzed from the room, his face flushed with energy and God knew what else. They all stared inquisitively after him before slowly turning their heads to look at each other. Immediately they burst into laughter that was so intense that Gwen nearly fell to the floor. After several moments she caught her breath, wiping tears from her eyes as she snatched up her guitar. She hefted it over her shoulder and freed the hair that ended up trapped beneath the case, before tossing a quick 'See ya' over her shoulder. Immediately she was out the door, and not too long afterwards was out of the record label's main headquarters, Jax Records.

Immortal's Heart had been 'on the scene' for around five years at this point, having been recruited and sign on by Jax Records when Gwendolyn was at the tender age of seventeen. She had been performing long before that and had been the one to form the band when they were all around fifteen. It had started off with small, trivial shows, such as birthday parties and small-town concerts, but now they were prepping for their first world-tour, and one couldn't walk down the street without hearing a reference to the successful band. What had gained their instant popularity was the release of their top singles, Futatsu no Kodou to Akai Tsumi and Mind as Judgement. After the songs had been put out into the open, Immortal's Heart had exploded.

And the rest was history.

Swinging into a small cafe, Gwendolyn quickly purchased a large hot chocolate with extra whipped cream and cinnamon shavings, signed three autographs for a trio of squealing high school girls, and continued on her trek to the park. It didn't take her long to arrive, but due to the excitement back at the recording studio, she still wasn't the first one there. In fact, she was the third.

"Helllllloooo, my beautiful and amazing friends!" she cried, waving frantically over her head and causing many - and by many, the whole god-damned park was referred to - pedestrians to look up from whatever they were doing and towards the screaming girl. She received several 'crazy' looks before they melted into expressions of recognition of who she was. Immediately whispers ensued and a few more people approached to talk to her. It was yet another five minutes before she actually reached Amu and Ellie, hot chocolate half-gone and guitar case bouncing against her back. She reached up behind her head and scratched the back of it, laughing out an apology as she did so.

"Sorry for-" huff, "- that distraction-" huff, "- And being-" huff, "- A bit late." Pausing to catch her breath, she grinned at the two. "Have you been waiting long? And where are the others?

Fresh in Ellie's nose was the scent of her dear friend, Amu, and a more subtle scent of award-winning cookies. She found herself grinning as she hopped off of the bench to greet Amu. "Hi! G-good morning, Ellie." Ellie waved, her smile never faltering as she watched her friend gingerly take a seat on the bench Ellie had been on just moments ago. She was about to go in for a bear hug, right before she stopped herself, realizing Amu was in the middle of doing something. Containing her joy, she watched as Amu took out a little wooden box, revealing an array of delicious chocolate chip cookies. "Want some?"

Ellie nodded eagerly in response, her mouth beginning to water again. "Oh, I knew I smelled baked miracles! You know just how to cheer me up. Thanks a bunch!" She giggled, helping herself to a cookie. But before she ate it, she made sure to give Amu one of her infamous bear hugs. Once finished squeezing the life out of her friend in a cheerful manner, she began to eat the cookie. She didn't make a point to be neat. In fact, she ended up stuffing her face with the cookie, too excited for something as silly as manners. By the time Gwendolyn approached, Ellie had finished the cookie, wiping several crumbs off of her face with her sleeve. Speaking of her clothing, she was wearing her green and white soccer outfit.

"Helllllloooo, my beautiful and amazing friends!" Ellie heard Gwendolyn call from not too far away. She turned her head to see, only to catch Gwendolyn being smothered by a crowd of fans. She smirked, glad her friend's band was receiving all the attention it deserved. It always warmed her heart, seeing her friends happy. While waiting for the hoard to die down, Ellie turned back to Amu. "So, how're you doing?" She asked. "And, oh, great cookies by the way! Do you mind if I have another one?" Ellie tried not to grab for one; she was trying to work on being less aggressive when it came to asking for food. So far, she was doing well. "Sorry for-" huff, "- that distraction-" huff, "- And being-" huff, "- A bit late." Pausing to catch her breath, Gwen grinned at the two. "Have you been waiting long? And where are the others? At the question, Ellie shook her head. "Nah, not at all! And I think Bianca isn't too far away... At least, from what I can tell."

And almost as if on cue, Bianca came running from seemingly out of nowhere. The moment she spotted her companions, the already large grin on her face grew. "Oh! Hi, guys! Look, it's a robin. Can you see it, can you see it?!"





Bianca (Bia) Willis



Image




Bianca found herself staring in utter amazement at the display of pastries the new bakery had for sale. She was leaning on the window sill, licking her lips and trying to keep her mouth from watering, but to no avail. Just looking at their line of sweets made her envious to the core. Oh, how she longed to stuff her face with some kind of delicious treat. She spent yet another full minute eying the miraculous desserts, her look never wavering. She could stare all day, and that was Bianca's plan, moments before she heard her phone ring obnoxiously. Part of Bia wondered if it was trying to yell at her. As she tore her eyes away from the frosted cakes, she began to slip her phone out of her pocket, only to gawk at what it had to say. She'd left herself a reminder to head to the park the moment she'd asked her friends to join her in the first place, for she knew that she'd end up getting distracted somehow.

The alert said as follows. YOU'RE LATE!

Bianca found herself scurrying through the crowded streets, constantly pushing people out of the way, the word "sorry" tumbling out of her mouth multiple times. She found herself falling more than once, her clumsiness leaving her no mercy. She hoped with all her heart that she hadn't kept her friends waiting! The last thing she wanted was to worry her companions, much less keep them waiting for her in the cold, cold weather. Then again, they'd have to be in the freezing cold either way... Whatever! They were in suspense! She felt an onslaught of guilt coming on. How could she do this? How could she be so forgetful?! ...She was a horrible person. How could she ever live with herself--- IS THAT A ROBIN?!

Bia went from beating herself up to gasping in pure delight within seconds. Not too far away, she'd spotted a red robin. She hadn't seen a robin all year. The sight of one made her jump up and down in excitement! She let out a giddy laugh and found herself heading in the bird's direction, which coincidentally, was right around the park. She found herself running in the direction of the bird, smiling from ear to ear. On her way she incidentally crossed paths with her friends. "Oh! Hi, guys! Look, it's a robin. Can you see it, can you see it?!" She was staring at the bird, which was quietly nesting in a tree not too far away, though to one without Bianca's superior eyesight, it would take a minute to spot. She grinned and began to clap her hands in sheer joy.

Jamie turned around when she reached the door to their home, her big brown eyes staring at him. He felt bad. He had promised, the day before, that he'd spend the afternoon after school with her so that she could get her homework done. Of course, plans arose since then and, before long, Felix found himself telling her "no". After school had finished, Felix had gone to pick her up and the entire walk home was spent in complete silence. He wanted to say sorry, he wanted to do many things that he never seemed to have the nerve to attempt. But, like with everything else, Felix let it go. He'd rather have stayed silent than said something wrong. A faint smile curved his lips upwards and his eyes suggested the apology that he couldn't form the words for. Jamie turned without responding and Felix's smile dropped immediately. He sighed, before starting with his walk. He was going to meet his friends at the park, but he wished he didn't have to. It was another one of those situations that he couldn't seem to refuse or walk away from.

Before he even moved four steps away from the garden gate, he heard the front door open and his sister was shouting something. "Mouse!" she cried out as the puppy darted between her legs and sped down the path. He skidded to a stop before Felix and looked up, eyes wide and tongue lolled out. Felix held his arm up high to stop his sister from running after him. "No worries, I'll take him with me," he called. Without another word, Jamie walked through the door and slammed it behind her. With one hand reached to pet the dog's head, he sighed and returned his gaze to Mouse's eyes. "Guess we're going to the park," he murmured, before standing up.

Felix kept his eyes down, as he always did, when passing others in the street. It had become something of a habit. A bad one. He rarely ever looked up, unless he thought he was at risk of bumping into someone. His eyes focused on the ground just ahead of his feet, and he walked without hurry. He was pretty sure all of his friends had turned up already and were waiting on him; he was incredibly late, but Felix wasn't worried. I'm already late, he thought, so there's no point in rushing now. When he finally dragged his eyes up from the ground, he found himself closer to the park than he'd thought he was. Mouse barked excitedly as he spotted some other dogs running around, but did not move from Felix's side. He was a well-trained puppy, so much so that he could be walked without a lead and Felix wasn't worried that he'd dart off after a cat or another dog.

He followed some paths, turning where needed, until eventually he came across his friends. They were all gathered around a bench; all four of them. He muttered something under his breath, then approached. When he was only a few metres away from them, he noticed that Bianca seemed to be admiring something in a far-off tree but Felix didn't bother finding out what. He seemed to have missed her statement completely. His eyes went to Mouse, who was now being followed by a much larger dog; a Rottweiler, if he wasn't mistaken. The dog held a toy in its jaw and it dropped it in order to sniff the white pup. Mouse looked up at Felix, his tail wagging. He made a noise, as if asking for permission, and Felix knelt down. "Go on then, if you want," he said, his voice low, and Mouse darted off with the Rottweiler, taking the toy with them.

Felix stood and looked at his friends. "Morning, everybody," he said, dropping his school backpack beside the park bench. "Sorry that I'm late," he continued sheepishly, "Stuff came up."





[I'll post for Alexander at a later date, after I've finished the sheet. He wouldn't make an appearance in the park, anyway.]

Amu smiled a huge grin as Ellie devoured her baked goods with joy. When she saw her friends happy, a sudden wave of joy washed over her like something she had never felt before. Well, that was a lie. The felt this joy many, many times before, though every time the feeling is just so well welcomed and enjoyed throughout her entire being that it felt like this first time.

Amu nodded eagerly when asked if she could have another cookie. "Of course you can. I made plenty." With bright brown eyes shimmering, she reached into the little box, taking out one of the cookies with a tad bit of icing on this side from the iced mini cookies she also packed, and handed to her, hoping that it was to her liking.

She hadn't heard Gwendolyn at first, though when she turned to the panting girl she knew what had just happened. Amu smiled at her politely, happy for her that her band was getting popular. She loved to watch them when she had the time. Many of times she had actually considered asking for an autograph so when Gwendolyn becomes world famous (And there was no doubt in Amu's mind that that was sure to happen) she could say she 'Knew her when.'

Then yet another one arrived, Bianca. Amu didn't even have time to greet her before she started pointing to something and cheering. Amu focused her eyes to where Bianca's slender finger was directed, though she couldn't see anything though the branches of the tree. It was only when she squinted her eyes did she see a bird fly out of a tree. Amu hummed in confusion as to how Bianca saw that from such a distance.

Finally the last of their small group came up, Felix. Amu never really did very well around boys, though Felix and her often hung out with the rest of the group so she had learned to be more comfortable with him. Everyone was here, and Amu was happy for that. It was always fun when they were all together. That didn't happen very often nowadays, what with Gwendolyn's band and the fact that most of them were graduation high school soon. It was times like these when she was truly happy being outside with the people she really cared about.

"Yay, everyone is here!" she bounced happily and bubbly. "I packed snacks for all of us, if anyone is hungry, I-I mean..."

Come to think of it, Amu hadn't even tried her own food yet. So she reached down and grabbed one of the smaller shaped cookies, placing it in her mouth. She immediately knew every ingredient, from the sugars in the home-made icing to the baking powder she used to activate the flour. She even tasted the tiny speaks on cinnamon that had failed to wash off her whisk from her last baking creation, and had somehow fallen into the cookie batter. Though there was nothing wrong with that. It actually made the cookies taste very better. She made a mental note to add cinnamon next time she used this recipe.

Bianca (Bia) Willis


ImageEllie stared in confusion as Bianca pointed at a tree not too far away, claiming there was a bird. Sure, Ellie could smell the bird, but there was no way someone could see the bird. She let out a small huff of annoyance, before sitting up and choosing to ignore the subject. She took another cookie from Amu's little box, for she had been granted permission to, and devoured the cookie whole while Bianca kept marveling at the robin. Bianca's smile slowly faded when she saw the bird fly out of sight, though it quickly returned when she heard Felix greet them. She didn't catch what he had to say, only that it was him speaking.

"Felix!" She cheered, completely forgetting about the robin she saw and encasing him in a hug. Ellie snickered under her breath as she watched Bianca hug Felix with all of her might, which was really nothing. "You're late! But that's okay, because I was too. The important thing is that we're all here now and the sun's out and we can talk and have fun and be awesome!" Bianca only released Felix when she heard Amu say something about snacks. She then spied a box full of cookies and giggled, gingerly taking one from the box and taking a small bite. "Delicious!" She cried, as she sat herself down on the pavement, right next to Amu.

ImageEllie waved to Felix, smiling in the slightest. "Heya. So, now that everyone's here, what do we do?" She asked, looking around. She knew Bianca had originally called them here to birdwatch, but with Bianca's short attention span and the general uninterestingness of watching birds sit around and eat worms, that probably wasn't going to happen. Not to mention, none of them had binoculars, so Bianca was the only one who could actually see the birds... Ellie inhaled through her nose and smiled. "We could always play with the dogs; there are some not too far from here..." Ellie trailed off. She sniffed around a bit, as odd as it may seem, and perked up a bit when she caught a familiar scent. "Oh! You brought Mouse? Eh, nevermind..." Ellie let out of a huff of annoyance. As she thought about what to do, one of her hands crept over to Amu's box of cookies, but her plan to snatch another cookie was quickly thwarted by Bianca, who was quick to call her out. After pulling her hand back and taking a pleasant whiff of cookies, she continued to think about what there was to do. "We could watch a movie, maybe? No, no... I don't know. What do you guys wanna do?" Ellie asked.

"Well... we could, um... uh... Hmmm... I don't really know... Wait, why'd we come here again? Who cares! Let's do something fun! Like--- Like surfing! Oh, wait a second... nevermind. I think we need a beach to do that." Bianca murmured. She began rambling on about things they could do, though none of her suggestions were exactly relevant. After a minute of mumbling, she stopped.
