{ History }


Anna's parents died when she was 14 years old, the couple had gotten into a car accident and her mother had died on impact. Their father had been severely injured and was rushed to the hospital, where young Anna and her 17 year old brother William held his hand as he took his last breath. But before he passed on, Anna's father gave her the most important piece of advice that she had ever gotten. He told her to keep smiling, because life was short and bad things didn't last forever. And Anna took this advice, it became her motivation. It became her.

Anna and William lived with their grandparents until her brother graduated from high school, the two siblings then moved into and apartment together. Being only three years apart, the two had always been close. Living together only caused them to grow closer, soon they knew each other so well that they could finish each other's sentences. Now 16, Anna took up a job to help pay rent. William had always wanted to go to collage, but seeing as he had to work two jobs to support his sister and pay rent, he never got to go. But that didn't matter, life was good now, they were happy. It was just like their father had said, bad things didn't last forever.

When Anna was 20 she met a girl named Madyson, the two soon hit it off and quickly became best friends. Madyson came from a rich family, and when she heard about how Anna and William had never been to collage, she decided to help out. Madyson paid for the two siblings to attend the same collage as herself, despite much protest from the two. But no matter how much they protested, they were both ecstatic to be given this opportunity. They were eternally grateful to Anna's best friend.

A year later, the three were having the time of their lives. Anna and Madyson shared a dorm together at the collage, and William and his dorm-mate, Nate, got along great, the four would often hang out together when they had free time. But lately Anna had noticed that Madyson and William would share secret looks and stand closer to each other than normal. Maybe it was because Anna had never actually had a boyfriend herself, but she was in love with the idea of love. So Anna decided to help them out.

The four decided to go on vacation to New York for spring break. Madyson's parents were friends with the owners so they got to sleep in the hotel's best room for free. Anna decided this was the perfect time for her brother and best friend to get together, so she took Madyson aside and told her the plan. "I don't know... Are you sure?" Anna had just laughed, "Of course I'm sure!. That night Madyson flirted with Nate just as planned, but instead of getting so jealous that William told Madyson how he felt, William ended up punching Nate straight in the face. Everything was wrong! William and Nate were fighting and Madyson was screaming and Anna couldn't believe what she had done. "You! This is all your fault! We would've been fine without you! Just get the hell out of here, we don't need you!" Madyson screamed as she pointed at Anna. So Anna ran out of the room, heartbroken.

{ Last Moments }

Madyson hadn't meant what she said, she'd just been angry and scared and Anna was the closest person. But Anna didn't understand that. Anna thought that Madyson hated her, and when she explained things to William and Nate, she knew that they'd hate her two. She couldn't bare to see her older brother look at her with disgust. So she decided to do them all a favor. Anna climbed up to the hotel's roof from the stairs, she walked over to the edge and looked down. Such a long way. Stepping up onto the ledge, she looked up at the stars, "I know you said that bad things pass... But I don't think I'm strong enough to wait this one out." Anna looked back at the door leading to the stairs, maybe she hoped that someone would come through and try to stop her. But that didn't happen of course. Anna stepped off the ledge, and the last thing she remembers were the stars and the feeling that she was flying. She smiled.

Anna is a big optimist, always helping people look on the bright side, yet she herself has trouble with that sometimes.

Emery's words were even difficult for Cassidy to hear. She had been in The Middle for what felt like months or longer, but it was still gut-wrenching to be reminded that she had killed herself. It seemed like such an unnatural thing. Your body worked endlessly, day and night, to keep you alive, and to go and just end it didn't seem right, but it was easy to think that now. Coming to The Middle meant that Cassidy could finally live without any burdens forced upon her. She was able to think clearly and rationalize things, and although looking back on it now, there may have been other options besides killing herself, she wouldn't have changed what she did. Still, it was sort of sad to see six new people who had felt just as hopeless as she had. Although she would probably never ask, she wondered what their stories were.

"Sounds like it to me," Cassidy replied to Oliver when he questioned whether she thought the woman had murdered her child. She had already nixed the mother off of her list of possible friends, and the boy that Sam had approached found himself in a similar spot when he cursed about how they were all "lunatics". Another new male, this one looking a bit older, stepped in and spoke to the boy, followed by Sam, who didn't hide her attempt to tarnish her and Oliver's names.

She really didn't care about what Samantha thought of her, and definitely not this new little punk, but Cassidy couldn't resist an opportunity to send a nasty remark Sam's way. She had a plethora of them lined up but before she could speak, Effy appeared and Sam commented to the boy that Effy was also crazy. It brought half a smirk to her face and stopped her from snapping at Sam. Cassidy and Effy didn't get along. That was a well known thing on the island, although even Cassidy wasn't sure what it was that had divided the girls. She hadn't liked Effy's personality from the start, and maybe the fact that Emery seemed to like her even despite how much of a bitch could be bothered Cassidy. She would never admit it, but there was definitely a tinge of jealousy somewhere in there. Even though Cassidy disliked Sam too, she appreciated the days where Sam made it clear that she wasn't even a good friend to Effy, who she apparently called a friend when Effy felt like being sociable.

There was a lot going on at once which made Cassidy want to follow her original plan and leave the area until things calmed down. It was interrupted again, though, when Samantha attempted to criticize Oliver for not helping out like a "gentleman" would do. It fell short, like most of her airhead remarks did, and Cass only rolled her eyes. She would've spoken up to defend Oliver but she knew that he wasn't as silent and passive as he sometimes appeared to be. In fact, his quips were always well-placed and usually fiery enough to get a laugh out of Cassidy. Beside Sam, the mother-girl was going on about some drunk driver and then went on to chastise the young male about his outburst. Cassidy was somewhat confused about the back story she had given but really didn't think into it too much. The girl was probably shocked and coming up with anything she could to make herself feel better for killing herself and her kid. She did agree with what she said to the boy, but just because it was coming from that girl, Cassidy glared in her direction. Anna was enough of a goody two-shoes optimist for them to need another one in the bunch. "The day's only just begun and I've already got a headache," she muttered to Oliver, although her eyes were still focused on the crowd.

Oliver watched silently as things went to hell. Everybody's outbursts seemed to be a dull ringing as he looked around at everybody. Was this what it was going to be like from now on? Oliver unconsciously pulled his sleeves further down his arms as he watched them all. All of the new arrivals had responded negatively, some more strongly than others. He couldn't remember any of the original residents ever being so put off by the idea of arriving in the Middle. There was one thing about everyone in the original group that was similar, they were all broken in some way or another. But these new people, they seemed different.

Oliver was pulled out of his thoughts by Sam's voice as she nodded over toward him and Cassidy. "Oh my God, calm down. Those two are like the only lunatics here," She told Charlie in response to his earlier comment. Oliver just rolled his eyes at the girl. He looked over to see Cassidy tense up as though she was about to respond, only to see her smile at Sam's insult to Effy. Oliver himself couldn't hold back a chuckle as he thought of how mad Effy would be if she'd heard Sam's comment. Oliver could honestly never wrap his head around the two girl's relationship, but hey, he couldn't really care less.

Oliver couldn't help but sigh as Sam once again tried to insult him. Looking back at the girl, Oliver couldn't help but make a remark at her lame insult. "Sam, you should be a lady and get your head out of your ass," He said with a blank face before adding with a shrug, "But you know. That's just a suggestion.".

Not taking the time to listen to any comeback the girl might have, Oliver turned his back to her and stared at the ground. He crossed his arms once more as he heard Cassidy speak to him, "The day's only just begun and I've already got a headache.". Looking up at the blonde, Oliver saw that she wasn't looking at him but scanning the crowd much like he had a few minutes ago. Oliver looked over his shoulder once more at the crowd before muttering, "I have a feeling that headaches are going to become a lot more common..."

Anna had always been a heavy sleeper, so it was really no surprise that she'd managed to sleep through all the drama and noise. Yet as soon as the redhead opened her eyes, she knew that something exciting was supposed to happen today. 'Now what was it that was supposed to happen today?' Anna asked herself as she blinked a few times to clear the blurriness from her eyes. She tried to clear the grogginess from her mind as she tried to remember why she felt so excited.

"Oh my gosh!" Anna exclaimed as she quickly jumped out of bed. She remembered the huge storm last night that signified a new person would arrive to the island today. 'How could I forget?' Anna mentally questioned herself as she ran out of her own hut, not bothering to change out of her pajamas or even comb her hair.

As she ran down the beach toward the waterfall, Anna could hear quite a few voices, the crowd of figures slowly coming into focus. Recognizing Sam first, Anna ran toward the girl and nearly tackled her in a hug. "Sammy!" She exclaimed as she squeezed her. Looking up, Anna noticed all the new faces for the first time. 'Oh my...'

Anna hadn't expected this many new people, but she was soon practically bouncing with excitement. Turning to the guy standing closest to Sam, Anna couldn't help but squeal. "Oh my gosh! You and Sam would look so cute together! You guys should totally- Ah... I mean, you guys do whatever you want..." Anna looked down at her bare feet as she rubbed her arms, she didn't quite feel comfortable giving relationship advise after what happened the last time she had.

Noticing another figure standing by the waterfall, Anna's excitement quickly returned. "Donnie!" Anna cried as she attached herself to the man's arm. Looking over at one of the women next to him, Anna couldn't help but blink as she rushed over to the woman who had tears in her eyes. "What's wrong, deary? You're much to pretty to be crying!" Looking around at everyone's faces, Anna noticed for the first time that she'd walked into a tense atmosphere. "Oh my... Seems I've arrived at the wrong moment..."

Everything was happening very quickly. The new arrivals were either panicked or upset and a lot of frustration was being thrown all over the place. "What the fuck is going on here? I didn't kill myself and I sure as hell don't want to be living with a bunch of lunatics who did." the boy shouted at the group, the term 'lunatic' piercing Donald's thought process from the rapid noise of conversations happening around him. "Wow, new guy. Way to make friends right away." he said with as heavy a sarcastic tone as he could muster. The kid wasn't probably that bad, but still, he reminded Donald of some of the entitled jerks he went to school with who didn't know anything about the world besides their parent's credit card number.

When he finally snapped back to reality, the first thing he noticed was Emery going off on one of the new guys. This one seemed like he could handle himself in a fight if things got physical, which worried Donald a bit. This hadn't been the first time Emery has lost it and it most certainly wouldn't be the last. The leader of the group could feel like a strong, caring influence one day and a tyrant the next and while Donald wasn't a fan of the latter, he understood where he was coming from considering his past. Luckily however the situation dissolved and Emery backed off the man, suggesting they should show the newbies to their huts. It was actually around this time that Donald heard the familiar and vibrant screech of Anna coming from nearby. It didn't take long before she was attached to his bare arm like a magnet. This was a common occurrence with her and Donald was quite alright with it. Before long however, she streaked toward the the crying woman and tried to comfort her.

"Oh my... Seems I've arrived at the wrong moment..."

"Don't worry about it, Annalise." Donald said as he moved over to the group now forming around the concerned mother. "Oh yeah, names. This lovely woman to my right is Annalise, you've kinda already met Emery, and I'm Donald." he spoke loud enough for most others to hear him as he gestured to each respective person. "We also have Samantha who, as you've seen, is great with people, Oliver who is a bit shy, but still a nice guy, there's Effy who's...you'll see, and Cass who is the one with the scowl which she has, honestly, a lot of the time, but you'll learn to love it."

Sam didn't appreciate Oliver's response to her insult. On any other day, she would have dramatically remarked on how mean he was to her, but now there was enough going on around that she didn't pay much attention to it. It wasn't like she felt that it was justified, even if she was the one who had taken a shot at him first, but the boy standing next to her, who now introduced himself as Charlie, was speaking. Anything that he had to say had to be more important than what Oliver was saying, she decided. It seemed to be the right decision too, because Charlie had suddenly switched from anger mode to a friendlier one.

"Of course I'll show you to the huts, Charlie," Sam said loudly, cocking her head back to shoot Oliver and Cassidy a glare before turning back to Charlie. Although she acted as if she was doing a saintly deed compared to the pair, there was really no valid reason for her exaggeration or glare. Sam liked being dramatic and making scenes, whether it made sense or not. "I'm Samantha Felton, but since we're friends, you can call me Sam." She had only managed to take a few steps towards the jungle when Annalise appeared and nearly knocked her over in the process of a hug. Anna was Sam's best friend on the island, and probably the only one who could stand her constant complaints and rants. There didn't seem to be a bad bone in the girl and even though she sometimes said things - like her next comment about how Sam and Charlie would look cute together - that made Sam cringe, she couldn't knock the girl. Her blunders were mainly sourced in naivety and not ill-will, and the same couldn't always be said of Sam.

Luckily, just as quickly as the comment had come out of her mouth, her excitement was refocused on Donald and the others, and Sam decided not to even justify her friend's behavior to Charlie. She would confide in Anna about how she was going to go for him later when they were alone, but for now, Sam wanted to make sure that it would actually happen. She had little doubt that it would, though, and smiled at Charlie as she continued to lead him through the forest and eventually onto the beach. "Where are you from?" she asked, breaking up the silence as they walked. She wanted to get to know him but didn't want to be too pushy. He obviously already had suspicion that they were all crazy here, and she didn't want to give him reason to believe that she was too interested in him.

The six new huts were all grouped together on the once empty end of the beach. "One of these is yours, so like Emery said, you can just go inside and check each one until you find some of your stuff in a trunk in there." Samantha considered taking the lead and finding his hut for him but even she knew that it might be invasive to look through everyone's trunks. Plus, the few sentimental items that everyone seemed to have in their trunks would probably trigger emotions and she knew that it was probably best to allow him to go through it on his own.

Things started to calm down, if only slightly. The man who seemed to be in charge gave her an apology for her daughter. 'Thank you. I just can't help but worry you know?' Another woman appeared practically radiating joy. Macie couldn't help but smile at her. Her fondness for the woman was growing and it only got bigger when she rushed to her side.

'Oh....it's just a lot to take in...' She patted the woman's hand. 'Thank you though....uh....Oh um.....Annalise.' Macie nodded at the man who introduced everyone and stood.

'I'm Macie O'Connell. Nice to meet you all....even with what's going on.' Her smile grew as she gazed to each person.

Most of them are nice. But the Cass girl doesn't seem to like me much. Let's see if I can fix that.

Taking a deep, not so calming breath she trudged after Cass. Upon reaching the woman she stuck a hand out. 'Hello Cass. I'm sorry about my arival. You probably don't enjoy screaming, crying people. But I hope we can start over?' Her head tilted to the said at this last question and Macie looked very thoughtful. Now all that was left to do was see if she could make a friend.

After helping the young mother out of the water and watching her move away, Chris sighed and plopped herself down by the edge once more. She smiled up at the man who offered her his jacket but only shook her head and took the towel instead thanking him. Chris lowered her head as she rubbed the towel against her hair in an attempt to dry it. Chris began to drift in and out of the conversation at hand. She was out of it and was spaced out staring at the pool of water as she only heard bits and pieces of the conversation going on. Chris was silent as she sat there with the towel around her shoulders spaced out for a good 10 minutes, right when everything began to die down.

Snapping out if it the thought suddenly hit her, what happen to the little girl? Was she saved? She wasn't here so she must have lived . . .
Nodding her head in conformation Chris smiled a bit. Yeah! Of course she lived! She had too! With that she stood up and looked around everyone seemed to be socializing but Chris wanted to get changed out these wet clothes. Her eyes scanned over everyone looking for the friendliest face that could probably show her the huts that the leader guy was talking about. Her eyes had landed on the redhead who seemed to be very cheery and just her cheery face made Chris perk up a bit and smile as she walked over to her.

"Hey there cutie," Chris smiled her usual goofy smile as she waved. She always thought of pet names for people right on the spot, even if she didn't know them and cutie just seemed to come out naturally. " I'm Christina, I was wondering if you didn't mind showing me to these huts? I would really like to get out of these wet clothes before I catch a cold. " Chris like the aura around this girl and she looked friendly enough to talk too so she went for it with confidence.

The woman with the child seemed sincere, but she didn't take the time to introduce herself or exchange anything more than a thank you. Emery thought it odd, but wasn't going to fuss over the idea. She probably didn't want to talk with him, currently he was portraying a sort of bad guy. People didn't want to hear the truth, but Emery had to deliver it. It also did't help that Annalise was making her entrance. Without any delay many of the new comers were drawn to her. And that was of course because she was an absolute ray of sunshine. So bright that it often hurt Emery's eyes. But he didn't mind the slew of new residents being welcomed by the current ones. In fact, he found the whole scene very nice. Things were settling well enough.

Of course there was still a straggler, but Emery was more than capable of introducing himself and The Middle to just one. Emery watched as the two English newbies conversed with each other, as the two women who had been in the pool together went toward Annalise, and the new boy toy get eaten alive by Samantha. He rolled his eyes at the last one. She was always trying to catch something. He started to take note of names. Rocco was the English man, the boy toy was named Charlie, and the woman with short brown hair was named Christina. His focused turned to Cassidy as the woman who he now learned was named Macie approached her. Powerfully and classically Cassidy she dismissed the woman and made her exit. Emery wanted to smirk at the situation but refrained. He then walked toward Macie and gave her a couple of words of encouragement, "Cassidy isn't always like that... She just takes some getting used to." She also takes her time with making friends with people, and if you aren't worth the effort you just aren't her friend. At least that's how Emery understood it. She was far too complex for Emery to fully understand, but he was fairly sure that he knew that much.

He offered a friendly smile to Macie as he moved toward Rocco and the girl he didn't know. They weren't being helped and needed to do something. "Do you two want me to show you around?" he asked simply, finally stopped in front of them. "I'm Emery, by the way." He shot out his hand, letting whatever sour feelings he had toward Rocco sink away. He needed to make a neutral playing ground before judging someone too harshly.

Anna rolled her eyes playfully at Donald's introduction of her. "Don't be silly, Donnie! You're much more attractive then me," Anna joked as she stood on her tiptoes and reached up to pinch both of her friend's cheeks like her grandmother used to do to her whenever she'd come over and exclaim 'My, you've grown so much!'. Thinking of her family caused a flash of pain if her heart, but it was soon replaced with joy as she turned back to the woman who'd been crying.

"Macie's a very pretty name! And don't worry, I'm sure you'll get used to the island in no time! It's really not such a bad place," Anna smiled brightly and gave the woman an encouraging hug before she watched Macie make her way over to Cassidy. Anna smiled warily after her, she wasn't exactly sure how a conversation between the two would go, but she was positive that Cass wouldn't say anything to rude. After all, they'd only just meet and Macie seemed really sweet.

"Hey there cutie," Anna turned back around and smiled cheerfully at the girl now introducing herself. Her grin only got bigger as Christina asked Anna to show her to her hut, and Anna nodded happily. "Of course! How could I live with myself if I allowed someone to catch a cold?" Anna asked as she scrunched up her nose and shook her head as if the idea was simply ludicrous. Of course the thought that Anna wasn't exactly alive anymore anyways never even crossed her mind.

Anna linked her arm with Chris's and began to lead the woman toward the beach, not caring that her arm was instantly wet. "My name's Annalise, by the way. But you can call me Anna." Anna could tell that the two were about the same age, and she wondered silently what could have caused Chris to kill herself. The woman seemed plenty cheerful, and Anna was pretty curious, but Chris hadn't asked Anna why she was here, so she didn't ask her.

As Anna continued to lead them down the beach towards the huts, she turned to look up at Chris and grinned. "You know, you kind of remind me of Bambi!" Chris's green orbs and pretty brown hair caused Anna to recall the animated deer. She remembered watching Disney's 'Bambi' a lot after her parents died, although it wasn't the most entertaining movie, Anna had felt a connection with the animated Disney character. He had helped show Anna that even though she'd lost her parents, she could grow up to be strong, just like the little deer had.

"I have a stuffed animal of him in my hut, it was one of the things I found in my trunk when I- Oh! That's right! You need to open your trunk to! I can't wait to see what's inside!" Anna couldn't help but grin as she squeezed Chris's arm, hoping she was keeping up with the ginger's babble.

When the two reached the six new huts, Anna released the woman's arm and motioned to the empty homes. "Here we are! I wish I knew which hut was yours, but sadly I don't... So it looks like you'll have to go searching for your trunk," Anna smiled warmly at Chris. Anna wanted to help, but she didn't want to intrude on Chris's first real moment alone. It was this moment where everything would really start sinking in, she could still remember the feeling clear as day, Anna had spent most of her first day alone in her hut crying.

As Anna began to head back to the others, she noticed someone sitting on the railing outside of their hut. "Ah! Ford!" Anna called out as she hurried over to the man, a bright smile on her face. She waved cheerily at Ford before looking down bashfully. Only to remind her that she was still in her pajamas.

'Great, Anna. Just great,' She mentally scolded herself as her face flushed a color resembling her hair. She hadn't even put on shoes this morning in her rush to meet the new arrivals, and she now hurriedly brushed her fingers through her hair, praying that it looked ok.

Hiding her blushing face, Anna tried to recover. "S-So, why are you over here all alone? Everyone is over by the waterfall getting to know each other at the moment..."

The girl he was speaking with introduced herself as Samantha, or Sam since they were "friends". As assertive as she was, she really didn't seem that crazy and he knew that she was probably the best he was going to get around here. Before they took more than a few steps away from the waterfall, a redheaded girl bounded towards them. Charlie instincively took a step backwards to leave space for her to embrace Sam. The two were clearly friends but Charlie was baffled by this girl's cheerful demeanor. Was it really possible that a girl like this had killed herself? She spoke about how he and Sam would look "cute" together before quickly retracting her statement, probably sensing how uncomfortable the situation was getting. Charlie chuckled, trying not to make it seem any worse, but he was glad when Sam didn't comment on it and continued to lead him away from the crowd.

She was leading him through a tropical forest and although she was able to navigate it well, Charlie had to focus on his surroundings to make sure that he didn't trip over a tree root or knock his head on a low branch. "I was born on Long Island and have been living in Manhattan for a little over a year now. I go... or went to... New York University," he responded to he inquiry about his origins. He would have reciprocated the question but before he could, they stepped out of the forest and onto a sandy beach. Had he not been sopping wet from head to toe, he would have paused to admire the simple beauty of the place. However, his cold clothes were sticking to his skin and even his shoes were filled with pools of water, so he took Sam's advice and began to walk towards the huts. He was halfway towards the first one when he turned back and smiled at her. "Thanks for the help. I owe you one."

He was surprised to find that the hut he entered was actually nice inside. It wasn't luxurious or anything, but it also didn't appear to be made by anyone on the island. It was sturdy and homey, with a bed and trunk in the main room, and a small bathroom attached to it. He followed Emery and Sam's direction and pulled the top off of the trunk that was placed in front of his bed, and instantly knew the hut was his. Inside were a couple of outfits that he had left in his closet in New York, as well as a framed photo of he and his family, a patchwork quilt that his grandmother had made for him years ago (and that he had honestly forgot existed until now), and a signed Eli Manning football that his father had gotten him from the 2012 Superbowl game. They were nice reminders of home and even though none of them were been extremely sentimental to him when he was alive, they made his chest clench up now. He pulled the quilt out and placed it, still folded, on his bed, on top of the blanket that was already there. He left the football and photo inside of the trunk for now, but did change out of his wet clothes and into a dry t-shirt and pair of shorts. There was a pair of sandals in the trunk, but he opted to go barefoot since he didn't plan on leaving his little home for a good while now that he was finally alone. He opened the door only once to hang his drenched clothes over the banister in front of the hut to hopefully dry, before flopping onto his bed.

Donnie endured the slight embarrassment of Annalise pinching his cheeks. "Don't be silly, Donnie! You're much more attractive then me." she said in a joking fashion. As soon as she let go however, he answered with a kind smile as the mother introduced herself.

"I'm Macie O'Connell. Nice to meet you all....even with what's going on." Macie said, looking to each of them with a warm grin While she had a beautiful smile, he couldn't help but think about how she must have felt. Donald didn't have any kids. He didn't even have any younger nieces or nephews, but if he did he couldn't imagine what it must be like to be separated from one of them like that. What he could think of however was the possible ways that she and the others ended up in the Middle. Sure, some people didn't remember offing themselves, but they were never this insulted or, in the case of the guy Sam was helping, insulting about the idea.

Before the writer could speak any further, Macie had already headed towards Cass. What the hell is she thinking? he thought to himself as the other woman who introduced herself as Christina approached Annalise. She quickly leaped at the opportunity to show her around and the two were off. It was then that Donnie looked back to check on Macie, who was by herself as Cass had no doubt walked off and Emery was helping the other two new arrivals. Tying his jacket around his waist, he approached Macie with a confident stride. "I could help you find your hut if you're ready." he said gesturing into the thick jungle near them. "...and don't take what Cassidy said personally. She's not as open as some of us."

Just as Ford had expected, the others were beginning to return from the waterfall. First came Sam and a boy who looked to be her age. They separated when they reached the new huts, but not before the male turned back to thank her for her help and to claim that he "owed her one". Ford tried not to think anything of it. Although he and Sam did hook up occasionally, he convinced himself that that was all it was: playful hookups to help pass the time. There probably were no real feelings between he and Sam, but he still would be offended if she started to mess around with that kid over him. If not offended, at least a bit embarrassed. He considered calling out to her once the boy had closed the door behind him, but more emerging voices caught his attention.

As he peered towards their direction, he made out an unfamiliar brunette and a very familiar redhead. Annalise was notable in more ways than just her unique hair color. She was the definition of exuberant and possessed the seemingly rare ability to look at everything in a positive light. Based solely on her personality, Ford felt like it would be hard for anyone to dislike her, but add in her beauty and it seemed impossible. He instinctively smiled even before she noticed him and came over, but when she did approach, he didn't make an effort to hide his grin. Ford was known for being pretty relaxed and goofy, so it wasn't out of character for him.

"I woke up late and figured you guys could handle the six of 'em on your own. Hell, I'm sure that Cass and Effy could've given the bunch a warm welcome on their own," he joked, somewhat surprised that he didn't see either of the girls on the beach. Cassidy seemed to just be naturally unfriendly and if Effy was having a bad day, she was probably worse than Cassidy, so he was surprised that both girls would be making an effort to greet the new people. He hopped down from his seat on the railing and took a step towards Anna. "So, how do they all seem? Gimme the 411."
