Jace Xzander

Im wild, what can I say?

0 · 406 views · located in United States of America

a character in “The Midnight Carnival”, as played by Ky-Lin

Description

The Wild One

Image
I was born under the name of: Amy Dawns
Call me: Jace Xzander or The Wild One
I was born on: December 29th
I appear to be: 18
I was born in: Arkansas, somewhere in the west
People would describe me as: Jace holds the phrase wild child close to her heart. Ready to do anything either because of bravery or stupidity. She will always warn a person that they best not start an argument with her on something she believes in, saying she gets her stubbornness from her mama. Truthfully though she wasn't a huge fan of arguing, so she would usually just nod as a person said whatever it was they are talking about. Jace tries to keep her head in the clouds but have a toe touching the ground, even when she isn't sure what she needs to do. Jace is energetic enough though that she isn't actually caught daydreaming, instead usually trying to act them out. Although naive enough to believe that not everyone lies, she does know when to trust her "all knowing" instincts.
I ended up here because: Jace may have a thick southern accent and be from it, but she wasn't from any kind of small city. She was the second eldest, with her brother John taking the lead, Ellie just behind her at 15, Manson being 9, Sarah turning 3, and a sixth on the way. Her granddaddy would take them hunting every season and he taught them everything they needed to know about living outside for a while. He was a paranoid older gentlemen just waiting for zombies, or something of the same nature, to try and take him down. Her family had been the kind to never leave where they were, several generations have lived and died in that city, but she didn't want to stay there. Her mother is a stubborn mule of a woman, out to prove to everyone that she is always right. She was still a wonderful and loving woman who would kill anyone that would do anything to her family. Her father owned a farm that keeps them a float, although everyone pitches in from time to time to make sure it stays that way. Jace wanted to explore and know things, not be stuck knowing only the little bit she was taught. When she graduated from highschool and turned 18 she kissed her family goodbye. She went all over, making camp mostly and using the survival skills her granddaddy had taught her when she was so little. She found out about the Carnival through whispers while she had been traveling around, like it was something that was chasing her until she finally had to see for herself. Jace isn't sure how she would find the money to go as often as she did, she just remembers the beauty she would experience every time, the sounds, and people she would see. Jace probably followed the Carnival for months before she even saw the circus show, by then she was hypnotized. When she was asked to pick a new name she remembered an old crush she had once, and the nick name she gave him since she couldnt say James at the time. It was Jace, and although they never dated, the name would bring a smile to her face.

So begins...

Yesterday's profits were good, at least for a Friday. Saturdays always offered the biggest payouts because nearly every child in town was out of school and would drag their parents there for the day. Today was no different. There were lines for every ride, the food stands were churning out treats every minute and the overall mood was pretty good. Although this was all good and well, Jade was feeling more stressed out than usual today. For the past few weeks, Ric had been bugging her about finding two new acts for the midnight show. He had perfected two pills, allowing their users to possess the power to become invisible and the other to shape shift into nearly any animal. They would be good additions to the show, but the trouble was finding two people who would fit the roles. It wasn't like she could make a post on Craigslist advertising the job openings. Someone had to seek them out and luckily for Jade, two kids had done just that the night before.

One was a seventeen-year-old boy named Gracen. He was quiet and timid but had no family that would come looking for him and desperately needed a way to survive. The other was an eighteen-year-old girl who decided to go by the name of Jace. Unlike the boy, she appeared to be much bolder and more courageous, but she was also living away from home. After describing both of them to Ric, he agreed that they would be good matches for their new openings and Jade offered them the jobs. She instructed them to return to the carnival this morning if they wanted to join, and both showed up. Once greeting them, she welcomed them into her trailer and had them sign some paperwork.

She explained that when they were signing on the dotted lines, they were just confirming that they weren't convicted felons, were US citizens, had no physical disabilities, and that type of stuff. One of the pages did include a small note that they were agreeing to work for the carnival until they died, but she didn't verbalize that and quickly had them sign the pages before slipping them back into a folder. After that was done, she handed each of them two pills and after explained that it was simply a new version of a drug test- after the pills dissolved in their mouths, their saliva would be tested to see if it showed a negative or positive result for any illegal drugs. This wasn't true, of course. The round blue pills would make them immortal, the orange pill would give Jace the ability to shape shift and the white one would give Gracen the power of invisibility. She didn't have to explain that to them yet though, because since it was their first time taking the drugs, they passed out almost immediately.

It was around six now, nearly eight hours after they had taken the pills, so Jade knew that the pair would be waking up soon. She did one last inspection of the carnival, making sure that everything was running smoothly before returning to the motor home. A few hours prior, she had spoken to Alexa and Ryder and explained that she had found two new performers for the show. She informed them about the new powers that the pair would be given and how they needed to explain to the newcomers that they were not only permanently bound to the carnival, but they had also been given supernatural powers. It was a lot of information to give to Gracen and Jace, and especially because it wasn't good news, Jade didn't want to be the one to have to spell it out for them. It wasn't that she didn't want them to dislike her, because that would soon come, but she didn't want to deal with any emotions that might come with their reactions. It would make her feel too guilty. Besides, she had given Alexa and Ryder the same job when Brooke, Ark and Lucas came along and they had handled it well enough then.

"Rise and shine," Jade said cheerfully, approaching the bunk beds that she had left the two laying on. She gave their bodies a gentle shake and waited until they became conscious before continuing. "Mr. Aefric and I would like to welcome you to our family. You're now officially Midnight Carnival performers. I'm sure that you have questions and I'd love to chat, but I have things to take care of, so I've instructed two of your fellow performers to give you a tour of how everything works around here. Gracen, Ryder will be helping you out, and Jace, Alexa will be able to assist you. I just saw Ryder heading over to the girl's bus and I'm sure Alexa will be somewhere over there, so you can head over there now. It's the bus over there," she said, pointing out the window at it. She turned, heading towards the back bedroom before looking back at the two. "You may feel a little different right now, but don't worry about it. They'll explain it all to you." With a smile, she continued walking back to her room. Once she heard the bus door shut, signaling that the pair had left, she sighed and laid back on the bed. Ric had left the carnival grounds, claiming that he needed to get a few things before tonight's performance, but Jade was glad that he was gone. She loved him immensely but she couldn't help but to feel guilty, knowing that she had lied to those kids and that their lives were now in Ric's hands permanently.

As she was half-way through changing into her clothes Alexa heard the bus door open and close multiple times and so she assumed some of the girls that had left earlier were back and at least one of them was bound to want a shower - it was a very hot and humid day after all. Once she was dressed and had her hair tied up, Alexa was about to exit the bathroom when she hear Luke's voice call to her from the kitchen,"Huh?" she replied instinctively as she then open the door and walked out. Brooke seemed to be on her way to the bathroom as Alexa exited it, so she scooted to the side and let her past, smiling to her before then continuing on to walk back to her bunk. As she got closer to the kitchen she spoke again, retracing what she had heard from Luke the first time, "Oh yeah, the new kids." she smiled, thinking of the two she had been informed about. As she continued to talk Alexa put away her things into the compartment by her bunk and pulled out a few accessories to go with her outfit.

Once she was all dressed up in her white t-shirt, shorts, tasseled waist-coat and accessories Alexa scooted into the seat beside Kaylee, "Me and Ryder are supposed to be looking after them for a bit. They were brought here today, Jade gave 'em the pills a few hours ago so they should be awake anytime soon." Alexa glanced over to Kaylee and was about to lean over and take a bite of her cotton candy before Catalina stole it away from both of the two and threw it in the trash; Alexa pouted at Catalina and gave her the puppy-eyes before returning back to her conversation with Luke, "The girl I'm training is supposed to be able to shape-shift, it sounds so cool" she chimed, returning back to her normal self, despite the lack of cotton-candy,"And I think the boy Ryder has is supposed to be able to turn invisible or something." Alexa glanced over as Catalina served up Kaylee's plate and sat down with her own which reminded her that food was indeed served. Alexa continued to speak out-loud as she stood and took a few steps to reach the kitchen and pick up a plate from the counter, taking a long sniff of it's contents before then walking over to the fridge to open it and pull out a can of coca-cola to then return to her seat beside the pink-striped Kaylee,"Mr.A is really getting adventurous with them powers, huh" she said, now speaking to the whole table rather than just to Luke. Alexa stopped talking for a moment so she was able to scoop up a fork-full of food and shovel it into her mouth, letting out a pleasured "Mmmm.." as she chewed, the flavor invading her taste buds.

Jace had felt something shake her softly through her sleep and her eyes opened to see a wall. It was weird to wake up and find herself inside of a place, instead of the little tent she had been staying in, although it was warm for once. Groggily she turned from off of her side and sat up, although it did take her a minute to realize that her feet weren't touching the floor when she went to step out. Oh I'm in a bunk bed... Wait when did I fall asleep? she turned her head to look at the woman who had given her the contract and the weird pills. It was probably those, hmm. After everything was explained to her Jace climbed down from the top bunk and went outside. She had seen the other boy who had been there as well, looking just as confused as she was, although she couldn't tell if he was surprised.

Jace looked around the camp ground, knowing most of it to begin with, with what felt like new eyes. Everything was sharper, every detail and every movement seemed to be noticeable, she was sure she couldn't see so clearly before. The carnival was as noisy and crowded as the first time she had discovered it. So cheerful and bright, the weather was warm and comfortable, everything just right. This had to be an omen, a good omen that this is what she was suppose to do. After a little wandering Jace found the edge of the carnival where there were two trailers, they both looked alike but one seemed cleaner and had a wonderful smell oozing out in welcome. Going to the door she took a deep breath, slightly nervous about meeting her new co-workers, before knocking loudly and poking her head in. "Hello? Could I come in?"

Kaylee smiled when Lucas noted that she was starting to look like Brooke because of the color in her hair. Even though Brooke wasn't the most attractive person personality-wise, she was obviously pretty enough for Lucas to want to date her, so being compared to her seemed like a good thing. As always, Catalina was there to ruin the moment though and demanded that she return the strand of hair to blonde. With a roll of her eyes and a bit of focus, the pink disappeared from her head. Kaylee knew that Catalina was already upset enough with her for disappearing for so long without notice, so she wasn't going to argue about keeping the color in her hair. Besides, later she would probably just change it back anyway.

Luckily, Catalina's attention was diverted from her when Lucas brought up new people joining the group today. She slowly ate her food, listening intently as the others spoke about the new performers. Alexa said that she and Ryder would be looking after them and that the boy, who Ryder called Gracen, would be able to turn invisible and the girl would be able to shape shift.

"Yeah, he's giving away all of the good powers and then I'm going to be stuck with my stupid power forever," she complained after Alexa commented on how Mr. Aefric was getting "adventurous" with the new powers. It wasn't news that Kaylee was dissatisfied with her color manipulation powers. It had been cool at first. She could change the color of really anything she touched, including her hair and skin - or that of other people, but compared to everyone else's abilities, it seemed insignificant. Brooke could freeze someone to death with the flick of her hand and Luke could set fire to a building in a second. Ryder was strong enough to lift a car with his bare hands and Alexa could survive being terribly mutilated and come out of it without a permanent scratch on her. Ark could move things with his thoughts, Matthaus' body was like taffy with how willingly it stretched and Catalina could manipulate people's feelings at her own will. Now, two strangers were coming in and getting equally cool powers while she was still stuck with hers. It seemed unfair and Kaylee decided that the next time she saw Jade, she would air her complaints.

Kaylee finished her food and got up, dropping her plate in the sink and looked around in boredom. She considered leaving the bus and going back out to the carnival but knew that Catalina would have something to say if she tried to leave, so instead she made her way towards Brooke who had just spoken up about the new boy. Although Brooke was quite intense and unapologetically blunt, Kaylee enjoyed purposely annoying her when she had nothing better to do. Without asking, she sat down on the end of Brooke's bed and ran her hands over the blanket, changing its hue to a light pink. "Pink makes our bus look prettier," she said with a devious smile.

Before she could continue, there was a knock on the door and an unfamiliar girl poked her head into the bus. If Catalina hadn't been standing a few feet away, Kaylee might have told the girl to get lost, but she didn't need any more problems and for all she knew, Jade was standing behind the girl and would hear it too. The girl didn't appear to be too much older than her which did interest Kaylee, but she was in more of a hostile mood than a friendly one.

"Go say hi to her," Kaylee said, prodding Brooke in the leg, although knowing good and well that Brooke was probably the least friendly of the four girls. "You don't want her to think that your heart is as cold as your hands!"

By the time the door to the bus opened yet again and in came Ryder, her current partner in crime, Alexa had already wolfed down her meal, and was rewarded with a few hiccups which eventually subsided after she took some deep breaths to get rid of them. As she then stood to place her plate and utensils in the sink she gave a smile to Ryder and nudged him slightly with her elbow, "You ready to play big brother?" after saying that she chuckled, she knew Ryder was the caring type so he'd definitely fit the big brother picture. He certainly was almost like a brother to everyone, sweet and charming with just the right amount of humor- everyone at the circus was family of course, but some liked it more than others. If anything, Alexa was grateful to have a family, and a home.

Alexa lent up against the kitchen counter, standing opposite to Ryder with her arms crossed over her chest casually as she watched the others eat - all except Brooke. The others may not know so much about her but after having to practically babysit her for few months once she joined the circus, Alexa knew a fair bit; including her diet. With a hint of a smile, Alexa pushed off from the counter and took a few steps to make it to the fridge, "Yo, Brooke" Alexa called, then opening the fridge and pulling out two whole sandwiches with cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. Alexa also grabbed a chilled bottle of water before closing the fridge and placing the sandwiches on a clean plate. "Here, I got you somethin'" she began, walking over to Jade's bunk and sitting down by her feet which where propped up. Alexa slid the sandwiches across and offered the bottled water, "I heard Cat was making something with meat tonight so I remember to make you some packed lunch.." in all honest, Alexa didn't expect for Brooke to react positively, heck - she would have been surprised if Brooke even touched the sandwiches - but since she was stuck with the task of taking in another newbie, Alexa thought getting back into the helping-spirit would help.

Before either of them could speak again, Kaylee - now with blonde hair - plopped down into place a few inches from herself on the end of Brooke's bed. Alexa offered her a smile but the girl only seemed focused on turning the blanket pink, Alexa smirked and glanced to Brooke to register her reaction but before she could speak the door to the bus opened again. "Why don't you boys just cook for yourselves?" she said out loud to whoever opened the door, assuming it was one of the men, lured in by the smell of Catalina's cooking; "First Lucas, then the BFG and now who, Ark? Matthaus?" of course she was teasing -and she couldn't help her chuckle -but Alexa tried to sound somewhat annoyed. Personally, she didn't really care about how many people invaded the bus, the more the merrier she would think to herself, but on a especially hot night like this, more people meant more heat.

But to Alexa's surprise, it wasn't one of the guys come for food as she had expected, it was a girl; one she'd never seen before. A mischievous grin spread across Alexa's,"You must be Jace" she called, then standing up from Brooke's bed. A Kaylee's comment, Alexa whipped around with a fake glare and tried to sound motherly, "Don't you go scaring her away" she said, waggling her finger and trying, in her deepest respect, not to sound too much like Catalina. Alexa grinned and chuckled her way to the other end of the bus to pull open the door further, "Jace right, come in" she stepped back a little to let the girl up the steps and into the bus, "Is there a boy with you?" Alexa tried to peer past Jace but could se no-one else, she gave a sideways glance to Ryder and shrugged before closing the door behind Jace once she had stepped in. "I assume you've met Jade already? She's the boss lady" Alexa looked to Jace with an eager smiled, awaiting an answer so she could begin to talk to the girl again. without having to interrupt her.

Lucas nodded as Alexa spoke of the two new performers who she and Ryder would be looking after. Shape shifting and invisibility did sound cool and Lucas couldn't help but to wonder what would happen if he lit the invisible kid on fire. Would it just look like an invisible blob of air was caught on fire or would he return to visible form? It was a question that Luke knew that he wouldn't be able to get an answer to since he would never try it out, but he was still curious about the power.

Brooke spoke up after Ryder entered, snidely commenting on how the new kid probably didn't even know where the buses were. Although she could be rude sometimes, most of the others were used to her attitude, or well, personality. Lucas actually liked her rough exterior because he knew that she wasn't truly cold-hearted on the inside. She was warmer than she appeared but kept up a defensive front and Lucas appreciated how strong and independent she was. It was more attractive to him than a girl who was clingy and an airhead.

When Lucas finished his food, he got up and refilled his plate with seconds. Even though Brooke refused to eat meat and had opted for yogurt tonight, Lucas couldn't turn down any of Catalina's food. His mother had been a vegan and even then, when he had such a strong influence in his life to turn away from animal-based products, Lucas still ate meat. He appreciated Alexa bringing Brooke a sandwich but was unsure if she would eat it or not. He only hoped that she would just politely thank Alexa for it and throw it out discretely later on if she didn't want it.

By the time he had returned to the table with his newly filled plate, Kaylee had gotten up and was sitting on Brooke's bed with Alexa. He cringed as he watch Brooke's comforter turn pink but before he could give Brooke a 'don't freak out' look, there was a knock at the door and a younger girl appeared, asking if she could come in. Alexa welcomed her in and Luke gave her a small wave. "Welcome to the team," he offered. "I'm Luke." He wondered whether the girl knew of her powers, or any of theirs, yet but knowing Jade, he figured that she probably just shipped her off blindly and expected Alexa to reveal the news to her.

Jace was welcomed warmly it seemed by everyone, which relaxed her greatly as she slide inside and closed the door behind her. Tucking her hair behind an ear she smiled softly at everyone as she scoped out the place and people as well. No one really seemed very scary although she could feel that there was a little something going on off a little ways from her, but if you live with people long enough it can happen. She went to shake the hands of the two who talked to her, answering each as she did, maintaining a small smile for each. Thur wus a boy when ah woke up, but ah might have lost him when ah wus lookin 'round for y'all. But ah have met Jade, she seems purdy nice! Ah am so glad ta meet ya though, and ah am glad ta work with y'all!

Her accent was a fairly thick southern one when she spoke to both Alexa and Luke, although Jace had gotten over how it clashed with others a long time ago. Her head was starting to kill her as she took a step back from the two, waiting for someone to tell her what was to be done. Jade had explained her new job but if she thought about it, she really didnt have any idea what she was suppose to do at all. The smell of the delicious food inside and her stomach isn't really helping her think either, all she could do was hope she didnt look spaced out.

This was not good, not in the slightest. Getting lost in a strange place wasn't exactly something Gracen was a stranger to, in fact it happened almost on a regular basis. What wasn't good was that he hadn't heard a single thing the woman - Jade? He thinks thats her name - had been saying to him when he first woke up. It wasn't his fault that first thing after waking up he isn't very attentive...in fact he isn't all that attentive any other time either. But now he's lost and maybe having just a bit of a existential crisis because he can't honestly think of anything else to do besides freak out.

"Okay, so I'm supposed to find some person called Ryder..." He says to himself, remembering perhaps the only thing that Jade had told him earlier. He wondered vaguely if the girl , Jace, had got around alright. "If I had followed her I probably wouldn't be in this situation." Gracen mumbles to himself, peering around wearily.

In the usual Gracen manner the moment he was left alone with Jace he had spaced out and ended up letting her drift from his field of view. Spacing out happened on a daily basis too, it usually went hand in hand with getting lost.

He feels strange too, stranger than usual and that makes him nervous. What if he's allergic to the pills? He hadn't even thought to ask what was in them. "Oh god," He scratches his head and comes to a stop, just to check his surroundings again.

He catches sight of a bus, and with a sigh of relief he began walking towards it. Now he could ask directions and find this Ryder person, though he was a little apprehensive of actually meeting anybody. The thought of having to endure being around another person for any period of time made him feel anxious, his palms starting to get sweaty and the tell-tale itch of a panic attack flaring up under his skin. He promised himself he would get better about this, but so far all of his attempts had led to more panic and a general annoyance towards himself.

He chews his lip nervously as he nears the bus, moving for the door and holding his breath as he brings his fist up to knock. Gracen hoped he didn't pass out or anything, though he figures that will be the least of his worries if there's anything to be said about his apparent lack of people skills.

Laying out across the large bed Brooke went to say something to Lucas but stopped and chuckled when he went to get seconds. Though she was a vegan she didn't mind that he ate meat, just never having preferred it herself. As she felt someone sit on the bed next to her Brooke looked up, expecting it to be Kaylee since she often liked to hang out on the larger bed. Brooke didn't mind this either though she did give the younger girl a hard time about it. Finding Alexa sitting at her feet Brooke twisted and sat up. Setting down the yogurt Brooke took the plate and water and, seeing that the other girl had even gone as far as toasting the bread the way Brooke liked it, she quickly looked back at Alexa surprised. "Oh... Thanks Lex." Setting the water down Broke picked up the sandwich and took a bite, smiling a little as she chewed.

As Kaylee sat and her black comforter turned pink Brooke smirked and swallowed. "You know, I don't really agree...." Brooke trailed of when there was a knock at the door and as a brunette popped her head through the door Brooke turned back to Kaylee. Listening to Kaylee's comment and then Alexa's 'warning' Brooke narrowed her eyes and went to kick the blonde girl but seeing Lucas' look she sighed and stopped. A moment later she smirked as she placed a foot against Kaylee's back and pushed her just hard enough for her to fall off the bed. Taking another bite of her sandwich Brooke tried not to laugh and gave the new chick a nod in greeting. Finishing her mouthful of food she looked over at Cat. "Can you have your kid change my blanket back?"

Suddenly she stopped and listened and jumped up from her spot. "Matt is outside! If he asks, I'm still out!" Leaping towards the bathroom Brooke slammed the door shut and turned on the shower, remembering that she had taken something from his kit without asking and had forgotten to put it back. Her and Matt had a rough relationship, often mad at each other for some prank or another but this time she hadn't meant to piss him off and had genuinely meant to put it back. Ever since her and Lucas had gotten together she had somewhat been trying to fix her relationships with the others without looking like she actually cared. It was hard, she didn't know why, but it was. Having anybody know that she cared for them felt like someone was asking her to shoot herself but she did care for her little family even if it was in a different way than most people.

As Ryder and Kaylee finished their food, Catalina instinctively set down her plate and began to wash theirs. Although they had washing machines for clothes in the bus, there wasn't a dishwasher. Cleaning wasn't something that she minded doing though. Busy work was always somewhat therapeutic for her and being able to feel like she had a purpose, whether it was as simple as cleaning up after the others, kept her feeling useful. That didn't mean that she did it without making sure the others recognized that she was picking up their slack, though. "¿Soy la criada en esta casa?" she muttered, shaking her head as she put the clean plates back in the cabinet above the stove.

She returned to eating her food, looking up only to watch Lucas fill his plate with seconds and when Kaylee sat down with Brooke. Catalina could tell that Kaylee was in disobedient mood today so when she looked back up from her plate again to see that Brooke's black bedding had suddenly turned pink, she wasn't surprised. Alexa was sitting with them so Catalina figured that she would deal with any problems and continued to eat until a girl walked in. She was a pretty girl, probably seventeen or eighteen and judging by her accent, had lived in the south for some time. Catalina pitied her when she said that she thought Jade seemed nice and she wondered how long it would take for that opinion to change.

"I'm Catalina," she said, smiling at the girl after Lucas introduced himself. She saw the girl eyeing the food and quickly turned, piling some food onto a plate and pushing it into the girl's hands. "Eat, love," she continued, pointing to an empty seat at the table. Catalina was going to make sure that the girl was alright and comfortable, guessing that she had only woken up from the effects of the pills a little while ago, when her attention was pulled back to Brooke and Kaylee. Kaylee was on the floor and judging by Brooke's smirk, Catalina assumed that she had something to do with it but she remembered the blanket issue and knew that Kaylee probably deserved it.

"Excuse me for a second," Catalina said to the girl, her expression turning from sweet to annoyed as she turned to face Kaylee. Brooke had disappeared into the bathroom, requesting that they tell Matthaus- who Catalina assumed was the one who just knocked -that she wasn't there. It probably had something to do with their ongoing prank war so Catalina only nodded in response. She wasn't a fan of Matthaus in the slightest bit so lying to him wouldn't be a problem.

"Black," Catalina stated sharply, grabbing Kaylee's hand and holding it to Brooke's blanket. She didn't think to consider that Jace might not be aware of their powers and that a blanket magically changing colors at the touch of a hand might be alarming.

Alexa Woodrow



Alexa had only glanced away to watch as Brooke pushed Kaylee onto the floor - which made her chuckle - before she turned back to see that Catalina had already adopted the newbie and shoved a plateful into her hand. Alexa chuckled again and patted Jace on the shoulder before she heard a knock at the trailer door. Upon opening it, Alexa discovered a young-ish looking boy; she grinned and without a word took hold of the boys hand and pulled him into the trailer, "Hey Ryder, I found him!" Alexa passed the boy to Ryder as if he was an object and peered out the door again to see Matthuas with somee kind of fabric draped over his arm, "Come to see the newbies?" she smiled to the man, leaving the door opened for him to enter the trailer if he wished.

Once sticking her head back inside, Alexa noticed that Catalina was no longer in the kitchen, and had infact moved on to the bedroom, where Kaylee still was on the floor. Catalina looked pretty angry, which meant something was certain to happen. It seemed as though today was full of reasons to grin and chuckle, everybody seemed so entertaining - or at least they were to Alexa.
"Hey, watch this" Alexa tapped Gracen and Jace on their shoulders and pointed toward the angry looking Catalina and the slightly flustered Kaylee, "THIS is what we do here" Alexa smiled but behind that smile she had her finger crossed in the hope that Kaylee would actually do as Catalina said so that she'd be able to give an example to the two new preformers.

Kaylee crossed her arms over her chest as Alexa scolded her for her comment, but before she could argue that she wasn't being mean, Alexa was walking towards the girl at the front of the bus. Kaylee could hear Alexa and the other talking to her but was surprised to hear a thick southern accent when the new girl, Jace, started speaking. After spending the past fifteen years traveling the country, Kaylee had heard accents like that many times but it still sounded strange and out of place.

When Brooke disagreed about the blanket looking better pink, Kaylee gave her a cheeky grin and a shrug, having no plans to return it to its original color. It still didn't seem fair that Brooke got to have the big bed and Kaylee had complained to Catalina numerous times about it. She reasoned that she had been here longer than both Alexa and Brooke but always ended up getting the short end of the stick.

Just as she turned back around to watch the new girl though, a quick shove pushed her off of the bed and onto the floor. Kaylee yelped in surprise and scowled at Brooke who had a smug grin on her face. If the older girl hadn't leaped up, shouting something about Matthaus being outside, Kaylee would have kicked her back, but Brooke disappeared and Kaylee sat back down on the bed triumphantly.

Deciding that she was bored with Jace already, she turned her attention to her fingernails. Catalina disliked it when she changed her hair color, but Kaylee wanted to have some pink on her, so she quickly turned her nails to a magenta hue. She hadn't noticed Catalina approaching until she grabbed her hand and pressed it to Brooke's blanket, demanding that she turn it back to the black color that it had started at.

After a quick examination of Catalina's facial expression, Kaylee decided not to argue with her and after an exasperated sigh, she turned the blanket back to black. She made a point to do it slowly, watching as the black spread from the area right around her hand until it encompassed the entire blanket. "Happy?" she asked, wiggling free from Catalina's grasp as she stood up and glanced around. A new boy was also now in the trailer and although Kaylee was more interested in him than the girl, she was beginning to feel claustrophobic, even in such a big trailer.

"I'll bring Jade dinner!" she offered, quickly darting away from Catalina and carelessly piling some food onto a plate before making her way passed the others and out the door. "Hi Matthaus!" she managed to say as she exited. Kaylee was really going to bring Jade food but that wasn't really the motive for her going to visit their boss. She needed to make another request that Jade give her a real, good power, especially now that these new people got some. Although Kaylee was a little bit too brazen for her own good when it came to dealing with Jade, she knew better than to barge into her trailer. Mr. Aefric could be in there and for a reason unknown to her and the other performers, no one was able to see him ever. It was odd but had become a normal thing after fifteen years. So, Kaylee knocked on the bus door and waited, hoping that Jade was inside and wasn't out monitoring the carnival activities.

Ryder disregarded Brooke's snippy response about Gracen not being there, and watched as the new girl, Jace arrived. She seemed friendly and in good spirits which was a plus, but Gracen was still unaccounted for. Ryder wanted to ask Jace where he had went, guessing that the two of them had to have been together earlier, but between everyone introducing themselves and then Kaylee and Brooke causing a commotion, he couldn't get a word in.

Relief set in when there was a knock at the door and Gracen appeared, but standing behind him was Matthaus and Ryder didn't think that could be a good sign. It wasn't like he had any beef with Matthaus, but it wasn't a secret that the blond was pretty out there and the last thing that Ryder wanted was for him to scare the younger boy off when he had only just gotten here.

"Hey Gracen," Ryder said, stepping forward and giving him a firm handshake. "I'm Ryder. I guess Jade told you that I'd be helping you learn the ropes around here," he said, offering him a friendly smile. Ryder had been a part of the carnival for over seventeen years but he could still remember his first day. He had spent the three previous days hitchhiking across the Midwest when he stumbled upon the carnival. Hours before, he had spent his last ten dollars on a bottle of rum and was pretty drunk by the time that he was wandering through the crowded carnival grounds. Honestly, he couldn't even remember how the series of events played out, but the next day he woke up in a trailer with the ultimatum to either accept a job at the carnival or be arrested for criminal trespassing. He needed a job anyway, so it all worked out, but even though he wanted to be a part of the carnival, the days following his change of life were a bit scary. He met new performers, including Matthaus and Catalina, and learned about the supernatural abilities that the performers possessed, as well as the superhuman strength that he had been gifted with.

When Alexa directed their attention back to Kaylee, who was now being held to the bed by Catalina, Ryder turned to watch Gracen's expression. A little bit of color manipulation was probably the best introduction to what they were about. It got to the point of them being "different", but wasn't as intimidating as Lucas trying to incinerate one of them.

"That's Kaylee. She can manipulate the colors of things," he explained as the youngest of the bunch changed the blanket from pink to black and then bolted out of the trailer, shouting something about bringing food to Jade. His eyes followed her until she disappeared out the bus door. Ryder figured that it might be easier and less overwhelming to talk to Gracen away from everyone else, so he took a few steps towards the bus door and nodded for Gracen to follow. "I'll show you around," he suggested, walking around the others and out of the bus. As he moved passed by Matthaus, he muttered, "The ice queen is in the bathroom," and continued on his way. Brooke normally wasn't much of a disturbance in Ryder's life but earlier that week he had slipped on a strip of ice conveniently placed right outside the guy's bus. Being that it was still fall, it was obviously part of one of Brooke's pranks, probably against Matthaus or something. Even if it wasn't intended for him, Ryder figured that a little payback by selling her hiding spot out to Matthaus couldn't hurt.

"So, where are you from?" Ryder asked Gracen, hoping to show the boy that he was friendly and also trying to avoid any awkward silence.

" Well hello there." Gracen startles visibly, but recovers quickly enough and turns to look at the.. er man? or maybe woman who happened to be speaking to him at that moment. " What's a fine lad like you roaming this part of the carnival?" Gracen tries really hard not to stare or anything like that, but he can't help feeling just slightly confused.

"I uh - I...What?" He answers at last, head starting to hurt a little bit. Honestly, he didn't know if this situation could get any more awkward...But apparently it could.

"You don't happen to be one of the new recruits are you?" Asks the person. Instead of floundering for words again Gracen nods so he doesn't seem like a complete fool. he figures this person must be one of his new co-workers so he'll have to actually interact with them more than once.

"Erm, my name is Gracen?" He says it like a question more than a statement, which would be strange enough if it weren't being stuttered out while Gracen tried his best not to fidget constantly. Gracen was only a little shocked as the door flung open and a girl began pulling him in. If he hadn't been utterly scared before there was no doubt to him being scared now. But it didn't seem as if anyone had the intention of attacking or possibly harming him so he tries to quell the rising tide of panic and listen to the girl.

"Hey Gracen," A man who Gracen hopes is Ryder steps forward to shake his hand, and Gracen holds back his panic. "I'm Ryder. I guess Jade told you that I'd be helping you learn the ropes around here," Gracen simply nods dumbly, trying to formulate words but unable to say them.

"Hey, watch this" Gracen felt a tap on his shoulder and was directed to look towards another, younger girl who was doing something with a blanket, "THIS is what we do here." Right before his eyes the girl began to change the blankets color to black. Gracen imagines that if he were drinking anything in that moment he would probably do a spit take, how did she do that? He wonders to himself, mouth falling open in surprise. To the best of his knowledge nobody could just manipulate color like that. "Wha...." He begins, but doesn't finish as Ryder says, "That's Kaylee. She can manipulate the colors of things."

Obviously things weren't what they seemed to be here, and Gracen just knew somewhere in his mind that this wasn't going to be the only shocking thing he would be hearing. Ryder began leading him away and Gracen was glad to be back in the open. "I'll show you around," Ryder says. Gracen is grateful, nodding and following alongside him. He knew this wouldn't be easy for him but he hadn't thought it would be so overwhelming from the get go.

"So, where are you from?" Ryder asks.

Right, I figured this was coming sooner or later... He isn't a stranger to being in new places so talking about himself and attempting small talk isn't new either. Its just the act of it that makes him nervous, and shaky. Chewing his bottom lip and fidgeting nervously with his hands. He's silent for a long time, but knows he can't drag out the silence for very long.

"I was born in New Jersey...but I had a lot of homes so I didn't stay there very long," He comments, feeling a little awkward about it. He never put too much thought into his origins himself, his parents home wasn't his, but neither were the multitude of foster homes he spent most of his childhood in.

"Um, what about you?" He retaliates, trying to make it not seem obvious that he's mapping out the place in his mind.

#, as written by Ky-Lin
Jace accepts the food graciously, her stomach starting to twist from hunger as she sits down at the table to eat. It smelled so good and it had been a long time since she had had a home cooked meal that was actually warm and not just microwaved. She noticed that the nice person that had given her the food was now pressing a girls hand to a pink bed spread. Her attention was drawn by the door opening once again and the boy who had signed a contract just like she had was there as well. A new person was there as well, but Jace had a bit of trouble attempting to figure out if the person was a girl or a boy. The cheekbones said boy but the person was fairly feminine to be to a boy, she would have to say hello after she was done eating.

Something catching her eye she turned her head back to the bed, the blanket was now black but the two girls hadnt moved from the position they were in just a moment ago. Now tha's jus werd. She put down her utensil as she stared at it then the girls, before scanning the rest of the people in there. Jace was extremely confused and now a little suspicious about what the hell she got herself into. "That's Kaylee. She can manipulate the colors of things." Well thats something alright but what did that have to do with what is going on around her? Then again if that was all the girl could do Jace really didnt see there being anything that bad, probably just things to look cool performance wise. With a nod as if to finalize that thought, and an attempt to ignore if they did something to her as well, she went back to eating.

Matthaus' eyes flicked across the young boy, skimming him in a circular pattern. The boy was awfully fidgetty, and Matthaus would even dare to say he trembled at the sight of him. Which was a little strange, even for his standards. He's had every reaction one could possibly imagine. But Matthaus could have sworn that the lad was down right scared of him.

Despite this however, Matthaus gave a toothy grin and a light chuckle,"Well it's a pleasure to m-" Instictively, the blonde's head snapped to look at the door that almost flung open and hit him. He took a quick side step, letting the door swing open, only to see Gracen dragged up into the trailer. The man couldn't help but laugh at Alexa's energy. She always appeared to have an abundance of it. "Hey!" He said through his laughter.

Climbing into the trailer with ease and briefly seeing who was also present, Matthaus finished,"I was talking to the boy, Alexa." He raised an eyebrow with a smirk. "Can't just steal people from conversations like that."

His blue eyes went around the trailer again. There was Kaylee, Ryder, Catalina, Alexa, Lucas, and another stranger. Probably the other new member to their lovely crew. "Ooooh!" Matthaus exhaggerated, raising yet another eyebrow. "Another new performer I see." Matthaus closed the door behind him. The camper was crowded. As big as they were, there just seemed to be no more space to sit. Luckily Matthaus never had a problem with small spaces.

Weaving around Gracen and Alexa with a curvy turn, Matthaus found himself in front of the counter. The smell of chicken and rice overwhelming his nose. "Ah!" Matthaus reveled in the pleasure of the smell. "Do you have enough food for one more Kitty?" His grin spread from ear to ear. But before Catalina could responde, his lanky fingers already grasped a plate and served himself a plateful. "Thank you Cat!"

Around this time, a lot of the people within the trailer were moving about. Kaylee decided to take Jade a place, Matthaus giving a cheery hello as she passed. Ryder decided to show Gracen around, also passing by Matthaus to leave. But his greeting wasn't so joyful. Instead of saying hello at all, Ryder gavee Matthaus a vitale piece of information.

Brooke's location.

Matthaus' eyes grew wide and his mysterious, signature grin spread across his face once more.

Matthaus has been at the carnival for quite some time. He grew a very intricate web of relationships since he was here, yet, out of all those strings and threads, Brooke was one of the only people who liked toying with it. Sometimes it was humerous, other times it was just a plain annoyance. So whenevr things went missing, or things were not they way he left it, or if a costume or supply was sabotaged, Brooke was the most probably answer.

Now, Matthaus knew that Brooke wasn't the cause of all of this misfortunes. But there was probably a reason for Ryder to give away her location. She obviously did something to deserve it. So he figured the missing thread was her doing once again. So it would be a shame if he let this oppertunity come to waste.

Slipping past the remainder of the being aboard the vessel, Matthaus balanced his food in his hand, making his way towards the bathroom. He leaned against the wall for a few seconds in thought, but looke ddown at his food. "Oh. I forgot my fork." Simple fix. Instead of weaving around the group again Matthaus simply raised his hand in the air, allowing his arm to run along teh ceiling until it hunng over the counter once more. He quick reached for a fork, his fingers carefully grasping it before his arm returned to him. "There we go."

With a eyes wide from his raging appitite, he took a big mouthful of the food, wanting to moan from the delectable taste. "This is so good." He managed to say with his mouth half full, but making sure to cover his mouth with his wrist. "Marvelous cooking, as always Cat."

As much as Matthaus wanted to finish his food within the minute, there was work to do.

His ears listened to the sound of the shower head. His eyes looked at the ceiling as his lips curled into themselves. So many things he could do. But Matthaus eventually let his arm hang down, now rolling along the ground. It wasn't too hard for Matthaus to slip into tight spaces, but it did take a few seconds of thought as he did so. So as his fingers started to slid under the door, Matthaus closed his eyes. Relaxing was an important aspect of his ability. Relaxing certain parts of his body allowed him to move in the ways he did, and it was no different when it it came to sliding under things.

But then again, Matthaus had been training himself to do this for years. Thirty was it? About? Somewhere around there. He wasn't sure exactly but it was a decent amount of time. So his fingers and arm started to slid slowly under the door, crawling up the other side to reach for the handle.

Alexa Woodrow



Once the bus began to deflate with the leaving of Kaylee, Ryder and Gracen in tow, it felt a little more roomy. But of course once one person had left, another joined them. Matthaus entered the bus and served himself some food,"I would have thought a man of your age would cook for himself." Alexa joked, grinning to Matthaus as she slid into the booth seat opposite Jace, "But I'm sure Cat won't mind." Alexa looked over to Cat and gave her a half smile, wondering if she really didn't mind all these people helping themselves to her food.

Alexa watched for a while whilst the others ate, she didn't say much because she didn't want to overload the new-comer with information, but she didn't seem to mind the others around her, "Hey, so" Alexa began, looking up at Jace a she sat across from her. From the corner of her eye, she saw Matthaus' arm slither across the ceiling and retrieve a fork, Alexa chuckled and wondering if Jace saw too before she began talking again, "When do you wanna start learning? There's a lot more to us than just pulling pranks on each other." she would smirk, gesturing toward Matthaus who was now slowly sliding his arm underneath the bathroom door.

As Lucas stood up and headed over, Alexa leaned out of her seat to peek their way and shouted after him,"Killjoy!" she was bitter that Lucas had ruined the fun show, but she didn't mean anything harsh by it. If anything, 98% of the time, Alexa was never mean to anybody.

[OOC= Sorry for short post, I procrastinated for hours and by the time I got to writing all of my ideas escaped me]

The long, lanky arm slid up the hard wood of the door until his fingertips reached the cold knob. With his eyes still remaining closed, his fingers felt for the lock. It wasn't too hard either, considering their trailer was identical to the boys. However, before Matthaus was able to unlock the door-

"Ow!"

Matthaus yelped, his arm throbbing as someone's foot stepped on the stretching skin and muscles. His eyes flashed open to see the bold ol' hero coming to save the day again. His arm almost instantly recoiled back into itself, quickly retreating under the door frame to it's original length. "Tisk tisk Lucas."

His hand, after placing his plate down, grasped his arm, which was now turning red. "You should know I'm not perverting
So there is no need to go about hurting.
That's a pet peeve of mine.
" He never responded to Lucas' question.

Matthause, however, raised an eyebrow with an awkward smile before turning to the door which opened. Brooke leaned within the frame and gave a timid greeting, bringing a smile to his face. "Good afternoon Brooke." He nodded slightly, letting his arms fall to his hips. "You didn't happen to see some thread lying around did you?" His eyes grazed the ceiling, almost in thought as his finger tapped his chin. "It appears I have... lost some while I was working today or yesterday?" With his chin tilted down slightly, but with his hair falling in the way, Matthaus batted his eyes in a very familiar manner. Matthaus had many of those faces.

Though, it wasn't long before Matthaus lifted his head again, even before Brooke responded to glide his way over to the seats to finish off his plate, which was now balancing in his hands once more. He took a seat next to Alexa and Jace, though bringing his knees to his chest to save space. "I need that thread to start on my costume for my next performance." He had a habit of making a new costume and performance each time they stopped. This week's scheme was oranges and yellows. Next week was dark purples, blacks, and deep blues.

But Matthaus never had a very long attention span, and once he was done with what he had to say, he stuffed another mouthful of food into his pie hole. Chewing it slowly and covering his mouth with his wrist, he set his plate down and looked at Alexa and the newbie. He quickly swallowed and gave a big grin,"By the way, I do happen to know how to cook quite a lot. But Kitty's is soooo much better." He gave a brief glance to Catalina herself.

But he, again, had a small attention span when it came to matters like this. He looked at Jace with wide eyes. "I know everyone in this crew,
Even though they are few
But a new face is definitely due.
So who are you?
"

Jace continued to watch everyone as she ate, seeing the one person stretch an arm and slide it under the doorway. A nickname flashed through her mind but she wasnt sure if they would get the reference, no one here looked like the nerdy type really. She gave a shrug towards Alexa, not really sure when an appropriate time to start practice would be or even what kind of practice she would be doing. Jace still wasnt sure how she even got this job when she doesnt really have any skills that would pertain to a carnival, let alone have a little show of her own in the Midnight Carnival. She hoped that there would be a lot of wonderful colors and music, maybe dancing and singing as well. Jace always liked things like that, and it seems like something that would happen in a carnival show.

When her food was gone she stood to wash her plate, listening to the others as they continued to talk to each other. You can tell that they are close and have known each other for a long time by how they talk amongst themselves. She heard someone who seemed to be directing their words toward her. She turned to see the person who was stretching their arm earlier under a door, and the person was rhyming as well. It seemed kind of fun so Jace listened and pulled her words out from the top of her head in a response.
Ya axe so inturestin an with grace
Ah am in fact new ta this place
E'n though thur aint a familiar face
Ah axe tha ma friends call me Jace.

Catalina kept a tight grip on Kaylee's hand until she complied. "Very," she responded sarcastically when Kaylee asked if she was satisfied with the blanket being turned back to black. As soon as she lightened her force on the small wrist, Kaylee slipped out of her grasp and was bounding towards the door, piling food on a plate on her way and claiming that she was delivering food to Jade. "Hey!" was all that Catalina got out before Kaylee disappeared out of the bus.

She made her way to the door and leaned out, watching to make sure that Kaylee was in fact headed to Jade's bus. Although that was confirmed by the girl's path, she wasn't sure whether visiting Jade was even better than roaming around the carnival. Catalina often sent someone over to deliver meals to Jade, not because Jade ever asked for her to do so, but because she sometimes felt bad for the girl. She had known Jade for nearly thirty years and although she despised everything that the woman stood for, she did pity her in some respects. While the performers all had each other to hang out with, Jade had no one. Unless she was watching them rehearse or giving them orders for the day, she was alone and although she acted like she had no heart, Catalina could only imagine how lonely it got.

However, she usually preferred to send Alexa, Lucas or Ryder over with the food. Alexa was a very nice girl who got along with nearly everyone and rarely caused problems for Jade. Lucas and Ryder were similar in that aspect, where they would do what they were told to appease Jade and avoid confrontations with her. While it seemed passive, Catalina had learned that it was the easiest route to take. Even if, they were all somehow magically able to rebel and overthrow Jade without Mr. Aefric directly killing them, they would all die within a few days because they wouldn't have a supply to their pills anymore. As long as they did what they were told, life wasn't horrible at the carnival. Still, some of the others didn't seem to agree with this. Brooke had toned it down in terms of her rebellion against Jade which was a positive, but Catalina still didn't want the two to be around each other anymore than necessary. Ark was also a nice guy but he was so sensitive that again, Catalina didn't feel it would be helpful to put him near the unpredictably volatile woman if it wasn't required. Lastly, there was Matthaus. Although his relationship with Jade wasn't perfect either, Catalina didn't ask him because she simply disliked him herself. A lot of the performers had a love/hate relationship with him but it wasn't like that for Catalina. She couldn't stand him. His jokes weren't comical, his constant rhyming wasn't entertaining and his general demeanor just wasn't attractive. She had worked with him for twenty-eight years though, so it wasn't like she could constantly ignore him (although she tried to do it as much as possible). Most of the time she would fake a smile and treat him with sarcastic kindness, or more preferably, curse him out in Spanish under her breath, but there were times when she wanted "romperle el cuello de goma maldita" (snap his damn rubber neck).

In a few quick minutes, Kaylee had left, Matthaus and a young boy appeared, the young boy and Ryder had left, Lucas had gotten up to confront Matthaus- who now had a plateful of her food- about something, and Brooke had appeared from the bathroom. Catalina was never a fan of chaos. She was used to being in the crowded bus because even though it was a big trailer, when it was just the four girls in there it was crowded enough. Even though there had been a lot of commotion going on before Matthaus had even shown up, Catalina liked blaming it on him, especially after he used his despised nickname, "Kitty" for her. That alone was enough to make Catalina want to knock his frail body right off the bus. When Kaylee had been learning to talk, she would call her "Cat" rather than Catalina, because it was easier for the toddler. Catalina didn't mind Cat so much, especially since it ended up sticking with most of the other performers too, but "Kitty" was not okay. Maybe it was just because Matthaus was the one calling her it, but either way, she raised an eyebrow at him, watching as he indulged in her food.

"You better start putting your culinary skills to use because one day I'm going to accidentally use bleach instead of oil on your food," Catalina said after Matthaus made a comment about knowing how to cook. As she glanced back over at Jace, she gave her a gentle smile, trying to return to a friendly state after getting worked up from Matthaus.
