|{Personality}|

{Friendly, Capable, Shy, Competitive, Helpful}
Liam is a friendly guy who would talk to you, even if he didn't know you, if only he wasn't so shy. He hates to start conversations because he always thinks he's doing it wrong yet craves to have as many friends as possible. He only has enough courage to ever start talking to people he doesn't know when his brother around, making everything easier on him. Liam is very competitive with his brother and is very aggressive in the sports he plays because of this. He loves to help others when he has the time and is always offering his help to the teachers or his friends should they need it for anything.

|{Place of Origin}|
New York, New York

|{History}|
Liam was born in New York City with his twin brother Lucas. The two were born as identical twins and looked alike in every single way. The children were born to the CEO of a successful, worldwide science corporation and the owner of one of the largest fashion lines in the world. Their father was always in the lab or in his office while their mother was always at her store or studio.

The twins spent their days in their penthouse apartment with their nanny. Growing up, the two were constantly in trouble with the nanny because they both hated her. She was extremely strict and would punish them for offenses that were not even theirs, but the nanny's. The twins mother didn't believe their claims though their father did and tried to convince his wife to fire the woman.

When the twins were ten, there was a large fire in the house from the nanny falling asleep with a lit cigarette. Lucas pulled Liam out of the fire and into the stairwell just as the fire was reaching a peak. The apartment was lost and within, the nanny was killed. The two were injured badly as Lucas received severe burns on his back from where he had gotten snagged on a jagged piece of wood in the apartment while Liam was left unconscious from smoke inhalation. The two were taken to the hospital where their father arrived though their mother didn't, claiming she was too busy and that the boys were probably fine, the person who had called having lied to her.

The two were able to leave the hospital after a week, for Liam, and two weeks, for Lucas. The two went through physical, and mental, therapy as they tried to recuperate. They moved into a new apartment as the old one was totaled. The divorce between their parents began to take place around then. Their mother, wanting to spite the boys' father, took the twins and moved them into a large house in a smaller town where they began middle school with their mother supposedly "raising" them. Their mother never told the boys' father where they went and refused to contact him, lying to her sons in order to make them not want to contact their father.

The boys' mother was an alcoholic after her fashion line crashed and became worthless. She continued to use her husband's money and the twins' father continued to supply it, fearing the boys wouldn't be okay without it. The twins would come home to their mother yelling at them and making them do everything for her. Often times she would bring home someone and force the boys to be silent and "pretend they don't exist" until her guest left.

The boys, in order to stay away from their mother, both took up sports to get away from her. Lucas, excelled at baseball while Liam excelled at basketball, but both were very good at football. They both played wide receiver and on occasion, during desperate times, were thrown in as quarterback and corner back. Every season the twins tried out for sports and made the team except their freshman year of high school. The twins, both trying out for basketball, were rather short and didn't make the cut. That season was the worst as when they were home, their mother hated them and usually tried to beat them or make them too busy to do anything else so their lives would be miserable as she now saw them as their father, not two young boys.

The twins got better and made the team every time after that. The only reason their mother let them try out was so that she could have her alone time with her various boyfriends. The twins began living in the garage around the time the started high school. Their mother locked the door to the house through the mud room and gave them a debit card. They lived, ate, and had everything in the garage with a door that led to the mud room (and bath room) but no access to the house.

Their coaches wondered why they never saw or met the twins' parents and looked into it to see that their mother was an abusive mother and their father was out of the picture. The coaches talked with the boys and said they were going to the police though the boys begged them not to, saying they were doing fine and that their mother wasn't that terrible, though neither believed it. The coaches took it upon themselves to help the boys, buying the entire team dinner after a game and the entire team new equipment to keep the boys from having to pay for their own without getting suspicious of the help.

Both took up a different kind of hobby when they didn't feel pressured to not come home anymore since they rarely had to see their mother. Lucas took up photography and drawing while Liam was more of a guitar player, singer, and songwriter.

93 Degrees Fahrenheit | 33.889 Degrees Celsius
Sunday, April 4th, 2014 7:22 AM

A trumpet sounded from a distance, loud and melodic in its usual 'To The Colors' anthem as scouts rose the American flag into the clear blue skies. Everyone had a part to play; dining halls had to be swept, mopped and pristine dinnerware were acquired to be displayed orderly, every watercraft were pulled out from its position in the shed and were instead lined up beside Lake Fairfield according to their size and shape, washrooms were scrubbed clean as expected, varies workshops had each booth displayed out into campgrounds, the cabins were to be dusted, cleaned, and assigned to the appropriate campers that were soon to arrive, and lastly every staff member put on their best smiles for these campers. A year had past since they had last seen them, and now they were determined as ever, hoping that these last five months would be spent in true enjoyment at Merrie Woode summer camp.

----->outfit<-----




Summer Camp. The words took a dreadful outlook upon Judith. Five month of pure horror with other campers she knew ever since she first attended Merrie Woode; others who inconspicuously tried to make her life a living hell more so than it already had been since the death of Jamie last year, her life little by little was beginning to accumulate all things suffering. Course she tried to look at the positive side, but it was difficult. Besides, who would be around to make sure she never forgotten her inhaler? Surely the others wouldn't. Half never even spoken a hundred words to her let alone acknowledged her appearance. She was only a forgotten soul at the center of earth; a mystery amongst various insights. Though, she never cared. Whatever the others thought, it was theirs to observe. No comment needed.

She leaned her head against the car window, watching as the scenery zip by, a tableau of dark green fir trees, bright rays from the sun reflecting off of the cars, and clear blue skies from above. "Beautiful? Isn't it?" her father took casual glances in the back towards her.

"Every year." She smiled vaguely.

Her father chuckled and flicked on the radio; turning it to the classical station. Judith heard the first few bars of Yiruma's River Flows In You, which was the very piece she was supposed to be working on while at camp before her Julliard audition in September. She felt some kind of cosmic coincidence. She began to concentrate on the notes, imagining herself playing, feeling grateful for this chance to practice, happy to be cool in a car with her melody and her family. She closed her eyes.

"Em? Em, honey, wake up." Someone softly shook at her shoulder. Alarmed, Judith jerked awake. It was her mother."We're here." she said.

Judith looked passed her and fair enough she spotted the sign declaring it to have been Merrie Woode. "Right." she rubbed at her eyes before grabbing her two luggages, hopped out the car, and shutting the door behind her at the same time her father met her with a duffel bag that withheld all her necessities. He took one look at his daughter, his Judy, and pulled her into a hug. "You have fun, okay? Jamie may not be here, but she's always watching over you."

The sound of Jamie's name only made Judith clutch her father even closer. "I will. You know I always will."

A minute passed. Two. Then, her father released her. She turned to her mother, and instantly she was embraced. "I love you so much."

"I love you too, mom." Then, she let go; slinging the duffel bag over her shoulder she managed to roll her luggage down the rugged concrete. Halfway toward a staff member that awaited her, she turned around- her hair whipping at her face- and looked at her parents. They were standing with arms linked over each other as they looked back at their little girl. They knew that she would only be away for the summer, but it was as if they weren't enjoying the thought of her leaving. Josephine raised a hand in goodbye, before walking down a little stone path lined with dark hedges and met face to-face with a tall, balding man, "Miss Ahlström! Welcome back. " He said casually, smiling warmly. "You may remember me as Michael McDonnell, founder of Merrie Woode. Anyhow, here's your schedule," He handed her a paper filled with useful information. Then, he pointed in the direction of her cabin.

Cabin 4: Gray Whales.

Lucas sped down the road with a broad smile on his face with Liam holding the seat beside him, his eyes sealed shut as he hoped the two made it to camp, alive. They had left their house a while ago, not bothering to tell their mother where they went as they packed their bags, grabbed the card they had bought with their credit card, then sped off. "You do know that just because you think you're invincible, doesn't mean we both are, or that you are," Liam groaned, trying to not get sick over the sight of trees speeding by faster than they should. "Yeah, well, there's no fun in life if you don't ever test the possibility of having invincibility," Lucas claims though he does relent on the gas a bit, allowing his brother to breath somewhat comfortably.

"Dude, what if we aren't put in the same cabin," Lucas asks, his one fear for the summer ahead. Liam shrugs, knowing well why Lucas was nervous. He didn't want to have to deal with crap about his scar. "If we are separated, the other dude will probably be cool if you ask him to be," Liam claims with a shrug. The two had been wondering what would happen this summer and had already openly shared their desires. Lucas's was to man up, and talk to a certain pretty blond girl. Liam's was to not act entirely stupid around a certain red head. Though neither said the name out loud, both knew exactly who the other was referring to.

Soon, the trees began to slow even more and the sign for their beloved camp, Lucas pulled into a little gravel parking lot that was mostly used for pick up and drop off though they had gotten special permission to park their over the summer, as long as they turned their keys in to the director of camp. The two stepped out of the car, going to the back where Lucas popped the trunk. Their sneakers crunched over the gravel as they grabbed their bags, each having a duffel bag filled with all their clothing, toiletries, and some special things. Liam grabbed his guitar case and Lucas, his camera bag.

As they began walking down the pebble hill, both smiled at the idea of being back at camp. They had an entire summer off, to do whatever they wanted without an adult to nag them or yell at them or do something horrible. All of a sudden, Lucas grabbed his camera bag, threw his duffel bag on Liam, and took off towards the cabin area that was close. "Dude what are you doing?" Liam calls after him. "You know I have to get pictures of everyone before they reach their cabin, before and after for the summer. I explained this in the car," Lucas says without turning back as he runs toward some girl who was rolling her bag towards her cabin. Liam sighed, resigning himself to having to carry everything himself as he walked down towards the camp director and creator, giving a wave to those he saw on the way, more of a nod since his hands were full though.

"Mr.McDonnell," Liam began as he approached the balding man that was only slightly taller than himself. Mr.McDonnell gave a wide smile to him. "Where's your brother?" He asked with a raised eyebrow. "Stealing pictures already," Liam claims as he sets down Lucas's duffel bag with a plop and his own more gently. "Where are we this year?" Liam asks as he accepts his schedule and cabin information, expecting his cabin to be the same as Lucas's. To his surprise, his read Bottle-Nose Dolphins and Lucas's read Elephant Seals.

"Sorry Liam, but you two should get out there and meet others, you've been cabin mates since you started coming here, it's time for an itty bitty change," Mr.McDonnell said with a wink causing Liam to just nod reluctantly, a half smile on his face. He hadn't really thought it would happen. With that, Liam began to make his way towards his cabin, planning to drop Lucas's stuff off in front of his in the process.

Lucas had not paused as he had run up to a girl with black hair, taking photos as he approached, tilting the camera this way and that. "Right there, hold it right there," He says as he snaps a few more photos.

"What the hell was that?" She asked. Lucas realized he really didn't recognize her and put his camera down, offering his hand to shake hers. "Lucas Woods, camp photographer dude who takes pictures for before and after camp. This is for before so we can see you with all the friends you make after. It's something I've always done. Nice to meet you," Lucas says with a smile. "Next time you want a photo then at least ask." Lucas nods, "Fair enough, ask and you shall receive," he responds with a wink when he catches a glimpse of red hair.

"Hollie," he practically shouts as he catches sight of his twin's crush. He looks back to the girl, not quite sure if he caught her name in the conversation but figuring he'd try to find it in his memory later as he takes off again towards Hollie, calling back to the girl as he goes, "Gotta grab some others. See you at the bonfire, find me if you need help or have questions."

As he runs up to Hollie, he smiles. "Hey, beautiful, looking sharp as always. Wanted to snap a pic before you head into your cabin and camp really begins," Lucas says as he kneels in front of her, snapping pictures as he shuffles on his knees with a wide smile as he twists the camera for different angles again. He knew she wouldn't find him to be flirting with her, it was just the way he always said hey to girls like her and Brooklyn, though with Brooklyn, he called her gorgeous, that was just for her. "What's going on?" He asks when he hears a shout from his brother. "Lucas, help me carry your stuff," he calls as he lumbers towards the cabin, looking like he might topple. "I am busy making art, gosh, respect my hobbies!" Lucas calls back more joking than anything else and knowing it would come across that way.

"Hi Hollie, you... you look really pretty today. Have a nice last semester?" Liam asked as he came up, already feeling like an idiot as he asked if she had had a good time at school, who ever had a good time at school? All of a sudden, Lucas leaps to his feet again, taking off as he calls over his shoulder, "Bye Hollie, see you later, without pausing."

He nearly passes Judie as his eyes had been caught on Theo, but pauses, snapping shots. "Yo red head, long time no see right? Smile pretty pretty, wonderful, perfect, love them, you work it girl," then takes off yet again, calling back, "See you later Judie."

He runs up to Theo and Dylan with a wide smile. "Yo dudes, ready for your before camp pics?" He asks as he begins to take shots of the boys, pretty sure Theo would start posing, or trying to photo bomb his own photos, in some way or fashion. "What's been going on?" He asks easy going.

Liam looks at Hollie, unable to find proper words. "You happy to be back at camp?" He asks as he drops his stuff on the path by her cabin to walk towards her. "Want some help with those?" He offers as he offers to take her bags for her and carry them into her cabin. At least he would feel chivalrous, even if he couldn't form proper thoughts or anything.

They've been here all of five minutes and Theo is already sad that they have to leave in five months. This was going to be his last year at camp. After this he was off to college, in some state far, far away, and he would probably get a job by then and wouldn't be able to come back to Merrie Woode. Though it wasn't like he needed a job with his parents money, but Theo didn't like relying on them or being too much of a bother, troubling even his parents made him feel bad. The only reason he had agreed to let Dylan's mom drive them to the camp today was because his dad was out of town on business and his step-mom couldn't drive, and since his dad wasn't around, their driver wasn't on the job, and Theo would have felt bad making him drive him all the way out there.

Besides, staying over Dylan's last night had been fun. His best friend didn't care how terrified Theo was of zombies, or how much he hated scary movies, he made him suck it up and deal with it. And for the most part he was fine with Theo cowering underneath him or grabbing onto his arm and squeezing hard enough to leave a mark when he got scared. All that combined with candy, pizza, and an outrageous amount of soda made for a very good night. Even if now he felt like he had a sugar-hangover and was either ready to curl up and nap or bounce all over the place and annoy the shit out of everyone.

"Dude, we're not in the same cabin? That's shit." Theo huffs, but he only looks a little bit annoyed. It wasn't like they didn't already have plans to sneak out after lights out and hang out (or cause trouble) anyways. "They apparently learned from last yea- Hey! It's Lucas!" He catches sight of a brunette with a camera running around in the middle of his sentence, and in a very Theo-like fashion jumps from one subject to the next very quickly. One minute he's standing there facing his friend with his cabin assignment in his hands and the next he's launched himself into Dylan's arms, fully intent on his friend catching him, until he realises that he's about 5'6" and Theo is almost 6'2". Instead he ends up with one leg holding him up on the ground and one held up by Dylan. "Paint us like one of your french girls, Lucas!" He smiles sweetly whilst making bunny ears behind Dylan's head.

Eventually, after a few pictures in various poses, he returns to standing on his own two legs. After that, other than greeting the photographer and saying a few words, he lets Dylan take over the conversation. It's obvious that he's a bit distracted as his eyes flick around, here and there, searching for the messy haired boy that had ignored him all year. He just wants to know why. Wants to know if he hates him now, or just wasn't ever that interested. Did he do something wrong? Was he stupid to think that they had something? Maybe he had gotten too clingy or something, he had tried to do everything that Colton wanted but... Was that him?

"Hey Colton!" He yells without thinking, raising his hand to wave. First instinct has him taking a step in his direction, but he pulls himself back and stays next to Dylan and Lucas. If he was avoiding him, Theo wasn't going to bother him. At least not yet. He had the next five months to get him to talk to him, he could deal another few days. Even so, he offers the other boy a friendly smile before turning back towards his two friends, giving Dylan a look that sort of says if I try to go after him, sit on me please.

Dylan breathed in the warm earthy air around him as he looked up from the paper he held in his hand. Damn was he was glad to be back at Merrie Woode, glad to be around people that were more approachable than the ones in school. It was going to be his last year like Theo's so they promised to live it up and make it the best year they ever had. Hey there's no harm in ending the their time here with a bang? Literally . . . as in fireworks, trust me that's definitely the idea that's running through Dylan's head right now. The grin began to pull at the corners of his lips before Theo's voice snapped him out of his little diabolical plans. " I know, It's straight bollocks I tell ya."

In the slight heat of the moment Dylan's little Irish accent slipped through along with some of it's slang. Dylan's expression went from pouting to a small chuckle that escaped his lips upon hearing Theo say how much trouble they caused last year."Yea? If they thought we were trouble last year they're going to absolutely love us this year mate." Dylan only had seconds before Theo had threw himself at him but the lad managed to catch him, somewhat, what he could anyway Theo was way taller than him so you can picture the struggle. The lad in sync began making faces at the camera and posing along with Theo. His first pose was a playful tongue sticking out at the camera and the rest followed naturally as he attempted hilarious poses with his bro.

" Hey Lucas! Be a darling and get my good side." Dylan jokingly says in the best girly voice he can produce as he poses one last time before Theo was back onto his feet. Brushing off his shirt slightly Dylan gave Lucas one of his goofy smiles before running his fingers through his hair. " It's been going dreadful! You know how school is with all the people. . . and crowdedness, Anyway I'm just glad to be back, kind of sad though it's our last year here." he let out a sigh but recovered quickly before continuing. " So how was your . . . Winter and all? " a small chuckled followed after his question.

Dylan caught Theo from the corner of his eyes looking as if he was searching for someone desperately and he automatically knew who he was looking for. When Theo found his little target but chose not to approach Dylan simply just placed his arm around Theo's shoulder in a reassuring manner. The lad's eyes met Colton's as he waved gently with a smile upon his lips before turning his gaze back to his friends and catching Theo's look. Dill rolled his eyes with a small grin on his face as if saying, I'll do more than sit on you, I'll tie your tall ass up if I have too. Suddenly a familiar redhead caught Dylan's peripheral vision causing him to slightly turn his head and look at her. Judith, was the girl that caught his eyes but when does she not? He felt like an idiot around her but his crush wasn't that big that he'd mess up his words around her, stutter a bit yes but never not complete a sentence around her.


Before he knew it, Dylan had spaced out and was absentmindedly staring at her for a good minute before catching himself. He saw Ben, a chill guy he only knew by name awkwardly make his way towards Judith but suddenly turned and spoke to the odd girl not to far from her. The short girl with black hair was very interesting looking and Dylan was drawn to interesting. He'll make note to introduce himself later.

"Hollie."

Hollie had taken a total of two steps away from Judith, not even bothering to hear her reply, though she doubted the girl would have answered anyway. Why would she? They weren't friends, she didn't owe Hollie an answer and in return the fake red head didn't care enough to even listen. That was when she heard her name, catching her off guard as she quickly tried to turn towards the voice. Unluckily her heels did not have the same idea and she stumbled slightly, her foot landing in a patch of drying mud as she caught herself regaining her footing. She grimaced as she quickly brought her foot away from the brown mush a frown on her face. The only thing she hated more than dirt was mud. Why she decided to come to camp every year, one that was surrounded by woods and dirt was a total mystery. One of the many weird mysteries and bizarre things Hollie did.

Letting out a hiss, she bit her lip as she tried to wipe the gross substance off her pink shoe and onto the grass only to no avail. Setting here eyes with a glare, Hollie turned to yell at the person who had startled her, only to see Lucas kneeling with a camera pointed at her.

The mean and nasty expression she usually wore slid off her face as she smiled for the pictures turning so he could get her "good" side.

"You're going to let me see those before you print them out, right?" Hollie asked raising her eyebrow as she watched Lucas jump to his feet, he didn't seem to hear her as he took off in another direction saying a farewell to her. "At least delete the ugly ones!" She called after him watching as he stopped in front of new people. Rolling her eyes she turned to Liam who despite looking identical to his brother alway seemed cuter to Hollie.

"Ah thanks Liam." She smiled genuinely at his compliment before glancing down at her muddy shoe. "I stepped in mud and these are new, they are going to be a pain to clean." She sighed tucking hair behind her ear before her eyes flickered up to meet his again.

"Well I guess as good as school can get." She gave a small laugh at his slight stutter, not in the mean condescending way, but more along the lines of a girlish giggle as she laughed along with him. Her brown eyes watched him drop his stuff off.

"Definitely not, I absolutely hate this camp." She answered bitterly responding to his question as she studied the area around her hatefully. "I don't know why I keep coming back...hmm maybe it's to see you." She winked playfully at him before lightly pinching his cheek. "Well aren't you the gentlemen." Handing him one of her rolling suitcases she headed towards her cabin opening the door and stepping in. She placed her bag to the side and glanced around the cabin. "Well thanks, I really needed the help. Do you need any help, I know you had quite a bit?"

If it had been anyone else she would have never offered to help. In fact she wouldn't have even said thank you. The best she would have done was shove her suitcase at them without insulting them. But Liam was her friend, one of the only people who could tolerate her, and despite as much as she would deny it, she liked having friends. There was no way she was going to scare them off with her bad attitude.

Colton eyes scanned the people and area around him as he desperately searched for Judith, trying to keep his eyes from wandering back to Theo. As far as he was concerned, as long as he didn't see the tall boy he wouldn't see him. He could still feel his eyes slowly inching there way to Theodore's as he looked over each face.

"Hey Colton!" A familiar voice rang out giving Colton the excuse he needed to stare at the boy he had been trying to avoid. As he turned around he could finally clearly make out Theo's blue eyes, the ones that he always thought he could drown in if he stared too long.

The tall boy takes a step forward, hand in a wave, and Colton raises his hand to bite the inside of his thumb(a nervous habit he's always had), as he tries to work out a decision in his head. He continues to watch Theodore as a wild debate goes off in his head, as he argues over if he should turn and run or slowly slip away, but no maybe he'll stay and let Theo walk towards him and embrace him. It would be nice and it was definitely harder now that they were looking at each other to turn away. It doesn't matter though because the tall boy makes the decision for both of them as he stops giving the wild haired boy a smile that just spells friendly.

Colton waves back awkwardly his hand barely raising into the air as stares at Dylan and Theo. The two turn back around and Colton pushes hair away from his face letting out a low relived sigh.

"Fuck." He mutters shaking his head as his eyes trace over Theo's body. He catches sight of a vaguely familiar boy his camera still raised, and Colton hopes he hadn't taken a picture of his stunt in the bushes, but he can tell by the angle of the camera that he probably did.

He turns away, back on his hunt for Judith, halfway happy that Theo didn't approach him and the other half disappointed. The friendly smile kind of irks him, but what had he expected? Especially after he had blatantly ignored the boy and was still avoiding him. It wasn't like Theo should be tackling him to get his attention, Colton wasn't that special. Besides Theodore had a number of men and women who Colton was sure would be happy to spend just one night with the blue eyed heartthrob. He couldn't expect him to wait forever, especially if he never planned on talking to him again. Plus it was just like Theodore with his nice and caring nature to do as he wanted, abiding by his wish of staying away from him.

"Colton!"

Colton turned, a smile already on his face as his eyes finally landed on the red head he had been searching for. Momentarily forgetting about his boy troubles.

His face mirrored Judith's and they shared their excitement as he ran to her gathering her into his arm as he hugged her, lifting her off the ground and swinging her around once. He gave her a light squeeze before drawing back slightly a somber expression over taking his features.

"I'm sorry." He apologized in a whisper. Even though he didn't say exactly what he was apologizing for he was pretty sure Judith would understand. When she had lost her sister he had called and tried to be there, but not nearly as much as he could have and for that he was sorry. Placing a brotherly type of kiss on her forehead he released her from his arms completely.

"Now I hate to cut our PDA short, but is that Ben over there? We should go say hi." Linking his elbow through her's he began practically dragging her toward the boy who he was so inconspicuously playing a wing man for.

77 Degrees Fahrenheit | 25 Degrees Celsius
Monday, April 5th, 2014 8:22 AM

So, it's the first day at Merrie-Woode, right? The campers had a chance to reunite with their peers, if new they got a look around camp, and even met with their campmate(s) whom they may or may not like. But that's just life. Now enough with the blah-blah stuff, It's time to start the day off right. The staff at Merrie-Woode have a list of plans for all the fellow campers. Those of who will follow obediently with a smile planted on their faces which indicate the meaning of being a "happy" camper, and there are others who will use their stay at Merrie-Woode as an advantage to only cause chaos. Hint, hint, the staff has their eyes close on three stooges that are known for causing great catastrophes: Elias Addiks, Dylan Negovanlis, Theodore Matthews. With the likes of Cassandra Bennett hoeing around. May these four (delinquents..) be surveillance.

The dining hall is where we lay our scene, each camper are (hopefully) enjoying their breakfast; scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, sausage, and stacks on stacks of pancakes. Since there's only eight minutes left, Mr.McDonnell has decided to make an announcement of who is in what group and with who for our Color War activity, thus giving each of them a map of Merrie-Woode:

The red group includes campers Johnathon O'briens, Alicia Morales, and Sophia Stanford.

The purple group Ciana Moore, Brooklyn Harrison, and Kit Grimshaw.

Now attention all campers. Whether or not you like any of your teammates, we are to be respectful and work as a group. Today's color war activity is Capture The Flag. Each team is given at least three riddles that each pertain to where the color of your flag is located. It can be anywhere for example, in the dressers, in the toilet, etcetera. The team who has collected their total of three flags, and report back to the drama station wins. Have fun. And remember to always be a happy camper at Camp Merrie-Woode!"

The usual breakfast-overhauled. Charlotte could at least look forward to enjoying a full breakfast. Was this the usual breakfast camps had? Charlotte's mind thought to her cabin mate, Alicia Morales. Out of all the people at the camp Charlotte think getting paired up with Alicia was the best. She was quiet and interested in art as well. Charlotte couldn't muster up any courage to ask to look at Alicia's artwork and sketched in her journal all night. Hardly a word was shared between the two but it wasn't an awkward silence because between them was the energy and understanding of an artist at work. Charlotte drew an odd picture of Benjamin as well as the guy with the camera that night. She forgot his name already.

While eating Mr. McDonnell made an announcement concerning groups and a Color War activity. As he handed out maps of the camp site Charlotte could feel her hunger dissipate.

"The yellow group includes campers Cassandra Bennett, Hollie Knight, and Charlotte Van Der Deen." Mr. McDonnell announced first. Charlotte didn't know who either of them were and didn't bother looking around. She knew that the regulars of the camp would notice her name as being new and figure out who she was, quickly. She didn't want to meet any eyes that were possibly looking at her. Analyzing her. Maybe even judging her.

"Now attention all campers. Whether or not you like any of your teammates, we are to be respectful and work as a group. Today's color war activity is Capture The Flag. Each team is given at least three riddles that each pertain to where the color of your flag is located. It can be anywhere for example, in the dressers, in the toilet, etcetera. The team who has collected their total of three flags, and report back to the drama station wins. Have fun. And remember to always be a happy camper at Camp Merrie-Woode!" On the back of the map were the riddles for each team.

1. Little critters are the worst to deal with. It's a good thing that they're kept outside in the__________.
2. Way down deep in the blue sea, betcha can't find me. Where am I?
3. The ________ is forbidden to all campers.


Charlotte had no clue what to make of each riddle. Especially, the last one. She didn't know the camp rules. The inevitable was coming now that breakfast was coming to an end. Charlotte lifted her head to see who this Cassandra Bennett and Hollie Knight were.

Why did she even have to go to this stupid camp?

It was a waste of her time most days, and she hated seeing her 'wonderful half-sister' flirt with every guy there. Even the ones Ciana made clear she better keep away from. God, she may act like she loves her 'half-sister' but as far as Ciana is concerned, they have nothing in common. Not even their father.

Ciana had been going to this camp for years, and she was getting so tired of it. This had to be her last year it had to be. She never made friends here, and it was just... annoying. The few friends she did have, moved off and 'lost her number'. So, she doesn't have much faith in humanity anymore. With that being said, her thoughts were interrupted, by that annoying thought of a woman.

"Ciana? Ciana, dear, you're going to be late your first day of camp!" Ciana rolled her eyes, letting out a sigh from her laying form, covered with her grey comforter. The too familiar form of her... whatever she was... appeared in her doorway. "Ciana, get up." The voice was more harsh this time, and that resulted in nothing to help Ciana.

"Shut up, Katy, my god." She growled, sitting up, and swinging her legs off of her bed. Her tattoo of a flock of birds flying up her left arm becoming visible. Despite fufilling her evil stepmother's wishes, she slowly drug herself out of bed, and got dressed.

She wore her usual outfit, and had a duffel bag over her shoulder as she boarded the plane later that morning. She couldn't believe she was giving in to her father and his lover's wishes, but she just went with it for the time being. Before she opened her eyes again, she was there, at camp. After claiming a taxi from the airport, she rode the ridiculously long drive to the woods where the camp was. "Hello Merrie-Woods." She mumbled, and found her way to her cabin, which she found out she was sharing with another girl."Brittle Stars? That's original.." Ciana shook her head, and settled herself in the cabin, meeting Ashleigh, and shaking her hand as they went off to the dining hall where they were being summoned like cattle.

Ah, yes. Ciana forgot about the groups.

The purple group Ciana Moore, Brooklyn Harrison, and Kit Grimshaw.

"Who?" She breathed, and looked around the dining hall. "Brooklyn, and Kit..." She muttered to herself, surveying the sea of people, to see if anyone might resemble those names. If she had two girls, she might just strangle herself.

Ciana hadn't caught sight of her half-sister, Cassandra, and was quite glad. Things had changed so much since last time, and.. she just didn't feel comfortable around her. It was going to be a long camp, wasn't it?

To say he was tired, was an understatement nonetheless. He'd driven all the way from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to the camp he'd attended for most of his life, located in North Carolina. It felt like he'd been driving his whole life. He had permission to drive, as his parents were out of time at the time, and he was due to move out on his own soon anyway.

He arrived around the time most of the others did, but kept quiet. He didn't honestly know some of the people, just the Camp Flirt, Cassandra Bennett. She seemed to have something with Ciana, but he didn't know facts. Honestly, in his opinion, both girls were attractive, even if they were complete opposites.

Johnathon found his cabin, the Bottle-nose Dolphins. He came to find out his roommates would be Dylan Negovanlis and Liam Woods. After a short introduction, he walked to the dining hall with everyone else. He'd forgotten about the groups, and come to find out he was in the red group... with two girls?

The red group includes campers Johnathon O'briens, Alicia Morales, and Sophia Stanford.

"This year will be an interesting one.." He mumbled to himself, and surveyed the cafeteria, wondering who that would be.

Getting to his cabin had been like a gift from the stars. He was bunked with Theo, which was a little strange to him because he figured the camp would have learned their lesson by now. Dylan wasn't there, which was the disappointment of his life, but they'd figure out some kind of arrangement later. No way being in different cabins was going to ruin the three's fun. The other person in their cabin was Ben, whom he didn't know awfully well, but had seen around and talked to a bit in the four years they had both been attending camp. Amidst Theo's and Eli's animated talking, he did his best to not lose himself in the conversation and isolate Ben. He wasn't sure how well he did, but he hoped it was enough to not make him seem like a total prick.

Despite plans to keep Theo up all night some way or another--childish pranks were his forte-- he had actually ended up hitting the pillow a lot earlier than he had planned. It was probably the drive, exhausting. Eli had never been a morning person, and to say he was groggy when he was woken up at first is a bit of an understatement. Once he got to the dining hall and had some food in his stomach though, there was a radical change. Back was the loud, laughing Elias that the camp staff hated. He stole two or three pancakes off of Theo's plate when he wasn't looking, smiling innocently when the other's gaze landed back on him. "Als de kat van huis is, dansen de muizen op tafel," he mumbled through a mouthful of pancakes with an obnoxious smile. When the cat goes away, the mice dance on the table.

The team assignments came a little later. After casting a quick glance around the room and locating one of his teammates, he said goodbye to his table and maneuvered his way through the crowd to get to the bench he was looking for. On the way over, he snatched a leftover sausage from one of the plates and popped it in his mouth. "Yo," he said, sliding in next to Liam, "how's it hanging? Seen Ashleigh around yet?"












Waking up in the morning was hard. Alicia had been up late last night, breaking charcoal stick after charcoal stick in her attempt to fully complete this one sketch she had started earlier that day. It seemed like an easy enough project when she initially thought of it, but the highlights had proved to be more difficult than she'd thought. And after a long night staying up all night bent over her sketchpad and scribbling away furiously, she had the worst crick in her neck. Alicia's family was one of early birds, and she had inherited that trait, but not even genetics could save her from the numerous yawns that escaped her mouth the next morning. At least she could be happy about her cabinmate. The girl, Charlotte she had learned, seemed to be strangely on the same wavelength on her. They hadn't spoken much at all that night, each scribbling away in their sketchbooks, but Alicia came away with the feeling that she could definitely like this person. She hadn't gotten the chance to take a look in her sketchbook, but she definitely wanted to see what her bunkmate was up to.

Breakfast was a relief. Luckily, there was coffee, which helped her get her head in order. She chose to sit next to Charlotte, seeing both Judith and Elias enjoying themselves at their own table. Again, they didn't speak to each other, and this time, at least in her opinion, the silence definitely carried a hint of awkwardness. Several times she tried to come up with an adequate conversation starter in her mind, shutting herself down each time. Eventually teams were assigned for some kind of capture the flag activity. Except this one involved riddles. She immediately thought of the places the riddles indicated. A black and white ball. That had to be soccer, right? Meaning their first spot was probably the athletics fields. Horses definitely meant the riding pen, and the oars had to mean a canoe, which meant the lake. Hoping to find their team's flag quickly so she could get the uncomfortable social game over with, she looked around for one of her teammates.

Locating one of them, this Jonathon fellow, pretty quickly, she decided to work her way over to him. She tended to be observant, staying in the back of the crowd with sharp eyes and listening ears, so she knew who each of her teammates were. She figured they wouldn't know her, of course, given that she rarely attempted to speak to people. Eventually, she found herself sitting next to him, her hands on the table and a slightly nervous smile on her face. "Hey, I'm Alicia," she said, with a quick lift of her hand indicative of a wave. Then, as though remembering she had said her name with a distinct Spanish accent not many people could replicate, she hurriedly followed her statement with, "But you can just call me Alice. I think we're on the same team." She knew they were on the same team, but being able to distinguish a person's face from a crowd when they've never met you before tended to come off as strange, and that wasn't the first impression she wanted to make. "So, any ideas?" she asked, with a quick run of her hand through the mess of curls atop her head.

Liam had dropped his stuff and Lucas's stuff off in their designated cabins. He had been glad to help Hollie and had told her that. Liam had made his way to the mess hall, knowing Lucas would meet him there. Liam carried nothing as he entered the room, looking around to see Lucas was already there, shoving food down his throat by himself. He seemed in a bad mood and Liam approached to help his brother out. "What's wrong? Didn't get everyone's picture?" He asked as he pulled the plate Lucas had made him closer to start eating.


Image


Lucas looked up, then back down. "We aren't in the same cabin man... How are you gonna help me out with... you know," Lucas asked with a nod towards his shoulder. Liam smiled at his brother, he was so embarrassed and worried someone would find out about it.

"You'll come to my cabin and I'll change it there. Or, you can tell someone and they can help you," Liam offers as he digs into his eggs. Lucas stares at his brother as if he was crazy. "Yeah, and you're going to be president tomorrow. It ain't happening," He grumbles as he continues to eat.

"Well, who's in your cabin? They're probably cool," Liam states as he eats. It was odd for Lucas to be in such a bummed mood. Usually it was Liam who was bummed and Lucas trying to cheer him up. Lucas shrugs, looking at his camera in hopes of cheering himself up. "A guy named Kit and Colton," Lucas mutters. Liam nods, encouraging more information. "Did you talk to them?" Liam prods. Lucas nods a little. "Yeah, I said hi, but I don't think I was very friendly," Lucas responds, pushing food around now.

Liam nods his understanding. "Well, you'll have to fix that won't you?" Liam asks and Lucas nods, smiling a little. "Who's in your cabin?" He asks, finally giving up on pitying himself. "Two dudes named Dylan and Jonathan," Liam states, reaching for Lucas's camera to look at the photos but being stopped upon having his hand slapped. "Nobody looks until after the summer," He scolds with a smile.


Image


Liam smiles upon seeing his brother back to normal. "I take it you got everyone?" Liam asks. Lucas smiles. "Not everyone knows I too their picture, but yes, I got everyone. Some are from a distance because I got too lazy to keep running. I don't run track for a reason, I'm not good at it," Lucas states as he leans back, forgetting his fears. He only needed to change the bandage when he went swimming or got it sweaty and it became gross, he would just have to monitor his activities based on when he could get alone with Liam.

"Dude, you're a wide receiver, that's what you do, run, almost continuously. You also play basketball, also nonstop running," Liam says, furrowing his brow as he tries to reason with his brother. "Yeah, well..." Lucas begins with a shrug. You also run every morning," Liam claims, amazed at his brothers reasoning. Lucas just shrugged it off.

"Look, announcements," Lucas points behind Liam to where the camp director stood to give the teams their members. Lucas smiles slightly upon hearing his groups members. He thought Judy was different in a way he thought was fun. Dylan though... the name was familiar and he knew he'd met the guy, he just didn't really know him. "Aw, I got one of your roomies, he's going to be so confused for a while," Lucas laughs as he eats more food, listening to the announcements as they continue on about the director not caring if people didn't like who they were with.


Image


It was rare Lucas and Liam were on the same teams so it wasn't bothering Lucas nearly as much as the cabin arrangements. "Ashleigh and Elias, I don't really know either of them. I'm pretty sure the directors soul goal this year is to screw with our heads and pair us with people we don't really know..." Liam concludes as he becomes the one moving food around his plate with his fork.

"There is one thing I have to say to you my brother," Lucas says, putting his hand on Liam's shoulder in a sympathetic gesture. "What?" Liam asks as he looks up, expecting some comforting words from his brother after what he had just done. "You're going down," He states as he stands and rushes to find his group leaving Liam staring after his brother, an exasperated look now on his face. "Thanks bro," He mutters with a smile as he grabs Lucas's empty plate and takes care of them. Liam grabbed his brother's camera, passing it to him as he passed his twin he realized he had forgotten it only when it appeared in front of his face.

Lucas approached his team upon grabbing their riddles. "Okay, here's the plan, let's figure this out so we can beat my brother. Hi Judy, for real this time, and hi Dylan, don't really know you very well, but hi," Lucas says with small waves at both of his partners before he looked at the riddles.

1. I wake up in the morning, put my foot to the floor, and make a fifty-yard dash to the bathroom door for the _______.
2. Vegetables are easy to plant.
3. Never go there at night.



Image


Lucas groaned, pretty sure he knew the number one answer. "Okay, so, I'm pretty sure number one is the toilet sadly... Number two, sounds like the Veggie garden. I have no clue about number three though," Lucas begins, trying to get ahead of his brother, crouching in front of his partners he had assembled as if he was holding a huddle.

Liam, across the room, had sat on one of the tables, scanning the crowd for his group. He spotted Elias and smiled when he was asked a question. "Nope, not quite yet. Here's the riddles though," Liam says as he holds up the sheet of paper he had gotten.

1. A place set for three meals daily.
2. Where we meet and sing songs.
3. Feeling tired, well Theodore?


"So, meals, probably somewhere in here, songs, I got that one, where we do our singalongs. Where does Theo feel tired? His bed? Is there anywhere else?" Liam asks as he looks to Elias, still scanning the crowd for Ashleigh out of the corner of his eye.
