|{Personality}|

{Fun Loving, Thoughtful, Excitable, Arrogant}
Lucas is always looking for something to do that is fun and exciting. He can't sit still for too long and ends up bouncing a knee or tapping his fingers in his need to move. He can only sit still when he is drawing or taking pictures but even then, has to be moving something. He is thoughtful towards other people and likes to think that he is chivalrous. He is very excitable and gets excited over everything and anything he likes. When he talks, he can come off as arrogant. Only in serious situations, or friendly situations, does he ever really not seem arrogant. He feels he can do things the best and therefore, should be doing them.

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

|{History}|
Lucas was born in New York City with his twin brother Liam. 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.

Setting
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.

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.

"Music completes me in a way that nothing else ever will.
It saves me every day, gives my life purpose, and defines who I am."

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




"Hey freak." The voice was vaguely familiar, its words were harsh, penetrating. Instinctively, Judith knew who it was; however, she made no intent to turn around for fear of what trouble would await her. It was only then had she nearly ran into someone who blocked her pathway. When she looked up she wasn't surprised to find Hollie glancing down at her with that conceited smirk of hers. A small, defenseless mouse locked in the eyes of a vicious snake.

"Where's your stupid sister?" She asked, though they both knew that she couldn't care less whether or not if Jamie was at Judith's side. However, that didn't let the urge to tell Hollie what really happened to Jamie. She needed the strength if she was going to survive camp on her own especially after hearing someone say Jamie's name for the first time since she died. Her parents always made note to avoid saying her name when around Judith. They both knew how inseparable their daughter's were, like 'two peas in a pod' expect one had made its way out. And that made one pea left alone in its vast space.

It was truly painful, but Judith was a strong girl. She wasn't the one to cry and cry and cry in search of sympathy. No one was at fault for Jamie's death and Judith knew very well that her sister didn't want her ruining her summer at camp by wailing around. No, everyone expected more from Judith. And, that's what she intended on doing as she brushed her way passed Hollie. She, of all people, was not going to ruin Judith's summer. And that was a promise held at heart.

It wasn't long until Lucas came running past her, snapping pictures as he went. "Yo red head, long time no see right? Smile pretty pretty, wonderful, perfect, love them, you work it girl," Judith stuck her tongue out mockingly at the same time he caught a picture of her before taking off, and shouting over his shoulder, "See you later, Judie."

She watched him leave, smiling to herself. So far it was beginning to turn out to be a great summer for her. All her friends were here, and especially the jar of peanut butter she managed to sneak out of the house despite her allergies seemed even glorious. If only Colton was around. Judith turned around half expecting him to pop out of nowhere, but when he didn't she turned her attention back in front of her and immediately caught sight of a familiar face-Dylan, or Diddles as she often teased him. He was with Theo and Lucas, as usual, and to her surprise he returned the stare. As he did, she couldn't help herself but get that eerie feeling in her stomach that always irked her at times whenever he was around.

It was confusing. He confused her in a way that left her even more intrigued by him. However, she was the first to break the ties; feeling completely dubious as she did so, and instead turned her attention elsewhere onto Colton who came stepping out from the bush.

"Colton!" She beamed with excitement. Seeing his face always seemed to make her happy.

The place wasn't so bad. The woods surrounding the camp was similar to the woods in Washington except less depressing. There were bright colors here. Yellow, orange, green, and red. In Washington there was just brown and grey. Sure there were the autumn colors as well as the green leaves in the warmer months but they were swallowed up with the gloom and doom atmosphere the woods gave off. It was one of the reasons Charlotte loved Washington. She would have a little trouble ignoring the bright color for her sketches but she would manage and find a way.

"Hey." Charlotte kept going hoping that the word was directed at n someone else but she looked around and saw no one else around. Not to mention the fact that the person who addressed her was looking directly at her.

Oh, spit! I'm the only new girl here, just like that camp leader said. Does that mean everyone's attention is gonna be directed at me? This is gonna suck. I'm gonna have to keep answering the same questions over and over again. "Where are you from?" "Do you like it here?" And then the bragging about what each and every person thinks of the camp. Charlotte shook herself from her mental rambling and looked to the boy that came up to her. No smile on her face. That was something earned.

"Hey." Charlotte replied back. She looked around and saw that several people were arriving pretty fast. Then she remembered the guy with the camera. Lucas was what he said his name was. It took everything she had not to grab his camera and smash it. She really didn't like her picture being taken. Especially, by a stranger. "You're not gonna take my picture too, or anything, are you?" Charlotte looked the guy over. He seemed well dressed. Which meant he most likely wouldn't be the type to hang out with her type of crowd. Charlotte waited for his answer.

"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.

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 yellow group includes campers Cassandra Bennett, Hollie Knight, and Charlotte Van Der Deen.

The orange group includes campers Mackenzie Irving, Theodore Matthews, Ben Hartly, and Colton Nobel.

The blue group includes campers Judith Ahlström, Lucas Woods, and Dylan Negovanlis.

The green group includes campers Elias Addicks, Liam Woods, and Ashleigh Smythe.

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!"

Breakfast was beyond nauseating. The eggs, potatoes, and pancakes were alright, but the sausage and bacon? It was sad to think of all the poor pigs being slaughtered just for the satisfaction of human hunger. What did they ever do to deserve that sort of torture? Being a full on vegetarian had you thinking about that sometimes; however, some people tend to take an oath on vegetarianism for the sake of weight loss. Judith on the other hand took the oath to save all the animals because she knew if she did, there would be one less mouth to feed on nature. She was always a big softie for the little critters, and they were to be treated better than this. At least that's what Judith thought.

She eyed everyone around the room as they dug into their meals; some left no more than a crumb on their empty plate. God, how she hated carnivores. "Walgelijk," Disgusting. She muttered incoherent Dutch under her breath low enough for only herself to hear.

Then, she gazed down at her own plate as she picked at a split nail on her thumb, biting and pulling on it. The sausage and bacon lay cold, untouched in front of her. She ate no more than five bites (discluding the meat) , and already she was feeling sick to her stomach. However, she was taught better than to waste food. Coming from a working-poor family ungratefulness was forever prohibited, but in this case she'd just have to let it slide.

Pushing the plate away, she turned to Colton. "It feels like I'm in a slaughterhouse." The nail split low, and she peeled it off, glad to focus on the pain. And that's when Mr.McDonnell came in the dining hall, a megaphone in one hand, and papers in the other. Her eyes followed him as he moved about the room, handing each camper including Judith a handout of (a map?). It was a hand drawn map of Merrie-Woode, but she didn't know why it was given to them.

"Good morning, happy campers!" Mr.McDonnell's voice boomed in his megaphone, and everyone in the room gave out sluggish 'good morning' in return. He continued, "Glad we're all awake. Now you all must be wondering why on earth I have given each of you a handout of our glorious camp. Well, that's a pretty darn good question. The staff and I have decided to start your very first day at Merrie-Woode right to an old fashioned game of Color-Wars!"

Everyone around the room groaned while others attempted to fling a spoon full of scrambled eggs at the camp director. Judith took in all the chaos, and bit her lip from smiling.

Poor McDonnell, she thought before he continued. "Hey, hey, hey now. It's going to be fun."

Fun? Last time he said that I nearly lost an arm. She lifted her glass of orange juice to her lips, listening in on McDonnell ramble on about teammates and such; who was on which team. "The blue group includes campers Judith Ahlström, Lucas Woods, and Dylan Negovanlis."

As soon as McDonnell said that, Judith gagged on the sourness of her orange juice loud enough for everyone within a three-seat radius turned to look at the little red head with concerned looks. When Judith finally caught her breath she noticed eyes watching her. Barely her first day, and already she made embarrassed herself. "Sorry," was all she said before shrinking lower in her seat.

McDonnell waited before continuing. "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!"

A happy camper? Yeah, right.

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.

When morning came Dylan was still sleeping, snoring lightly against his pillow until some rusting from his cabin mates woke him up just in time. Upon opening his eyes, the little bit of sun that came through the cabin windows seemed to burn Dylan's eyes and earn an audible groan from the young man. " Ugh, sun I bloody command you to go back to sleep." he groaned turning over. Being introduced to his cabin mates yesterday sure was a bit exhausting with all the introductions and everything but Dylan thought they were both alright even though he may confuse Liam for Lucas sometimes and even if he was a bit envious of Johnathon's wolfy look. He was still a bit bummed that he wasn't bunked with Theo but he'd get over it soon enough.

His stomach grumbled loudly finally making him get out of bed to take his quick cool shower along with getting dressed afterwards. Now smelling like lavender Dylan shoved a few things into his messenger bag and was the last to leave the cabin for breakfast. Upon arriving, Dill greeted some people with his usual jokes and smiles before grabbing his seat and filling his plate with a little bit of everything, except sausage. There was something about it that made his stomach do flops, he use to eat it all the time but one day it just sat wrong in his stomach and from then on his stomach has never agreed with it since. He nibbled on his bacon and stuffed his mouth with eggs when Theo came over. "Top o’ the mornin’ to ya beautiful. " Dylan smiled at Theo before hiding behind him as he flicked a piece of pancake at Elias then failing at fending off Theo from taking one of his pancakes.

When Mr.McDonnell came in with his microphone and announced the teams, Dylan looked up at him with his mouth filled with pancakes making his cheeks look like that of a chipmunks. Surprise was noticeable on his face. Just the thought of being teamed up with Judith made his stomach twist in odd ways mostly out of excitement and nervousness. Swallowing hard Dill sipped his cranberry juice to help the food go down smoother before he took a deep breathe. "Looks like the non-existent gods are on our side today, huh?" Dylan also pushed himself up from the bench after cleaning his mouth with a napkin and heading after Theo. "Unfortunately I guess they are."

Catching a seat next to Judith, Dylan flashed his genuine childish grin towards her. " Morning little red." he looked around noticing Judith's sister was nowhere to be found, he didn't see her yesterday either but he just thought that maybe she went to her cabin before Judith did or something like that. He would have asked about her but he didn't think this was the appropriate time so he'd ask later. Fiddling slightly with his bracelet, Dill thought it's now or never. " Psst, hey Judith I got you something over the winter." he whispered trying not to attract much attention since he wanted this moment to be a him and her thing. "Close your eyes." he whispered again with a smile and when she did what he said he pulled out this beautiful, handmade leather bound journal and placed it in her hands. " You can open them now, Theo, me and mom had gone to this flea market and I saw this. It reminded me of you and I know how you like to write. "

Smiling Dylan reached back into his bag and fumbled around in it a bit until he found what he was looking for. " See I bought one for myself too and it came with this bracelet attached to it." he lifted up the hand that had the bracelet on it before holding up one identical to his. By now Dylan had all but forgotten they were in a room filled with campers, to him it was just Judith and him right now. " It's suppose to be a charm for good dreams, I haven't taken mine off since I bought it and of course yours came with one also." he carefully took Judith's wrist into his hand and carefully put the bracelet around her slender wrist. " There that's a better looking wrist already." Dill joked light heartedly before he was snapped back into reality by Lucas.

"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,"

Dylan stared at him dumbfounded for a whole second still trying to recover from what just happened and how he got through that without making a complete idiot of himself. He could hear his heartbeat in his ears. "Ah, yeah h-hey Lucas, don't worry if you got my good side while taking those pictures yesterday I'm sure we'll be much closer by the end of the summer." he joked with his all too familiar goofy smile before they got back down to business.

"Ah the toilet, they have some guts putting it there, anyway I have no clue what the last one means but I can fetch the one in the toilet because honestly no lady should be sticking their hands in toilets." Dylan looked over at Judith then Lucas with his eyebrow raised as if he was saying am I right?

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.


The riddles were a complete joke. Seriously, who came up with them? Over and over Juidth tried to decipher them; tried to make sense of them; however, she had only solved the first and the second one. It was the third that was beginning to irk her in ways she never have been irked before; her nostrils were flared and that only ever happened whenever she was really irritated. "Ik Kan niet Geloven DAT we spelen dis." 'I cannot believe we're playing this.'

She was just about to give up when suddenly Dylan plopped himself next to her. "Morning little red." he greeted, and Judith turned just in time to catch that goofy little smile of his as if that would be the only thing that gave her meaning at that point.

"Oh, hey Diddles." She greeted back. Afterwards, she tried to pay attention onto the riddles once more, but somehow couldn't stop herself from glimpsing occasionally at Dylan. He must've seemed the same way because she had caught him peeking at her until he realized she'd seen him, then looked away and started squirming around uncomfortably in his seat. Judith couldn't help herself other than smile at him. Dylan was always such a prance whenever he was around her. However, she never really knew why. It was strange.

Judith opened her mouth to speak at the same time Dylan said, "Psst, hey Judith I got you something over the winter."

She watched as he began to pull something out from his bag, and slowly the anticipation was beginning to eat at her insides until he paused as if barely realizing something, then began leaning in closer to her to the point where Judith coud smell the sweet scent of lavender.

"Close your eyes," he whispers.

Judith gives him this look that told him she wasn't enjoying the sound of this. She didn't necessarily like surprises; however, she did as Dylan told told her and closed her eyes. Not a minute had passed before he had dropped a lightweight (book?) into her hands. "You can open them now, Theo, me and mom had gone to this flea market and I saw this. It reminded me of you and I know how you like to write."

When she opened her eyes, amazment was written all over her face. The journal was beyond beautiful. She allowed her fingers to trace the outline of the rose.The fact that Dylan knew her in ways that she has never known herself was..sweet. He was sweet. She didn't know what to say, so instead she watched as he took yet another present." See I bought one for myself too and it came with this bracelet attached to it."

She stared in awe at the two identical bracelets. "It's suppose to be a charm for good dreams, I haven't taken mine off since I bought it and of course yours came with one also."

Before Judith could react, Dylan grabbed for her wrist, and carefully slipped the bracelet into place. The whole time, Judith avoided eye contact with him because she knew that if she looked up butterflies were soon to make their way into her stomach like they always did whenever Dylan was around.

"There that's a better looking wrist already." he joked making Judith smile tentively.

She opened her mouth to say something and shut it almost instantly. Then shook her head, I love it. Thank you. " She was staring down at the gorgeous charm bracelet, that now lay heavy around her wrist, when she said that. It wasn't because she didn't mean it, it was because that was one of thse awe moments that would make her tear up if she stared at Dylan while saying it.

A minute passed. Two. And they stayed lie that; Judith staring at her wrist in Dylan's hand and Dylan staring at her.

"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." The sound of Lucas' voice interrupted them. Quickly, Dylan dropped her wrist as Lucas came over and sat across from them.

"Hey, Lucas. You and your brother are always competitive. Anyhow," She flipped over the map to where the riddles where printe ed in clear font. [color=#800000 ][ i ]"Anyhow, I did find out the answers to the first and second riddle; however, it's the last one I'm unfamiliar with. I mean it could be anything really."[/ i ][/color ]

She handed the handout to Dylan, and watched while biting her thumbnail nervously as he scanned it over. "Ah the toilet, they have some guts putting it there, anyway I have no clue what the last one means but I can fetch the one in the toilet because honestly no lady should be sticking their hands in toilets." He looked over at Lucas, giving him a look making Judith roll her eyes with a snort, then a smile.

"Har, har very funny Diddles,"she snatched the paper from his hands, and pushed a strand of hair behind her ear. "Seriously though, who comes up with these? They're horrible, but we already have the answer for two. You guys wanna go ahead and get our flags?"
