Fay

Fay actually got to a high height before she closed her eyes and turned her body to do a backflip. She landed on her feet barely and a gasp of pain escaped her lips. My ankle, I think I just hurt it, crap… She went to stretch her right ankle and wince. A inaudible sigh escaped her lips. She walked off the trampoline area and slid her shoes back on. She rubbed her hurting ankle before she took her things from under the trampoline.

As her eyes scanned the area, she noticed the teacher and some guy with white hair on the matts talking. Are they going to fight? Why are they shirtless? Is that really necessary? Nice view, but still. Next her eyes wandered over to a blond who was jumping. A smile graced Fay’s lip. The sight of the female jumping was amusing. She was also pretty much staring at the fight that was going to ensure.

She softly cleared her throat before she leaned against the trampoline set. She sank down against the wall of the trampoline as she sat down. She sat crisscross and ran her fingers slowly through her hair. She opened her drawing book and then her art pencil case. After she looked at the males on the mat again.

Her slender fingers picked up a plain black pencil. Then she quickly began to sketch the men. It wasn’t the prettiest or neatness drawing, as she had to do many lines quickly to get the men on her paper before they moved. She was able to do it in the nick of time before the guy with the white hair moved. Fay picked up the eraser from the case and erased the unneeded lines. She blew off the markings of the easer off of the page.

She looked up every now and then to the mats so she could get more details. It was easy to put the details in even if the two men were moving. She had been able to get the basic and main form and features of both of the men when they were still. Once she got the men finished, she would go draw the details of their surroundings. This drawing would be black and white. She ignored the throbbing pain in her ankle as she drew. The though of it was kept in the back of her mind. As she drew she had a blank expression on her face.

Image Kojou lunged in with a jab as Karu's face after he was done talking. Of course Karuko, left himself open, mainly because there was alot of options. He didn't know his opponent. Why protect what you dont know? But seeing Kojo's arm lift up before he could throw the punch, all Karu had to do was step back and swift to the side, with his right foot and duck forward to miss the Left face jab. But the right swing made him stop half way and make a slight spin back. It was the leg shot that almost threw him off, he lifted his knee to try and aim for Karu's ribs. Stopping Karu's self, he stood up on his feet at the last second of the flying knee into the ribs trick.

Kojo's knee was just inches away from Karu's rib, when he had took a hold of it in mid air. You'd hurt yourself if you hit there. His voice was clear and his words where strict as day. He didn't want his students hurt, but if Kojo didn't listen, that might be the end of the match and Karu wont be able to talk to him.

Not letting go of Kojo's knee he stepped forward a bit, looking straight into the boy's eyes. He could see that even though for a spoiled rich kid brat, he was aslo like a wild animal inside. Wanting to break free from whatever was holding him back.

"I see...Well it seems Kojo has won." He laugh with a smile on his face holding up his hand that had stopped Kojo's knee. "I hurt myself while stopping him, pity,....I didn't get the chance to talk to you properly. He took the bandage from his hand and wrapped it back around his head, clipping it into place.

Stepping over to his shirt as he picked it up he sighed. His thoughts were slightly lost in what he had saw. A beat trapped inside, wanting so badly to break free. Maybe if he were the one to help him, Kojo wouldn't be so bad like others may think or not.

Stretching out his body he stepped back into his slippers and stepped off the mats. Fighting always tired him, if anything he was ready for a long sleeping night.

"For those of you who hadn't finished doing a backflip, please do so now. I unlike most of you, don't wish to stay here all night."

He turned his attention to Kojo and nodded in respects of the match. Walking over to Fay, whom seemed to be drawing something. "May I?..I saw you out of the corner of my eye. Had to end the match early." He chuckled gently.

He knelt down and softly took her ankle in his hands. It was small and frail even with the swelling. "It seems you are excused for today, stay off of it for a couple days." He pulled out some bandages that he always carried with him in his back pocket. Wrapping her ankle up slowly as to not hurt her.

Softly putting it down he got up and patted her head. "Ill get you an ice pack, you stay here." Walking over to another set of doors it led to the equipment room. To where a little Ice machine was at. Scooping up the ice into a plastic bag that was also there. he closed it up along with the door to the equipment room and made his way back over to Fay.

"If you are hurt...speak up. It's ok to do that here." He offered Fay the ice pack.

If Lynda could turn this into a comic, it would be called "The Adventures of Super Teacher."

Seriously, the teacher Karuko walked over and disabled the argument between perv and blonde w/piercings. It was a decent amount of volume in this place, how did he hear them over everything? His methods seemed to work pretty well, and interestingly enough, reminded her of how a parent takes care of their child; lots of kind, encouraging words and head patting. She half expected for the blonde to retort in some way about being patted twice, but she just accepted it both times. Not only that, she got up and headed straight for the trampoline after he left.

One hell of a pep talk I guess.

To her surprise, "Super Teacher" walked over to Kojou. She couldn't hear what they were saying from this distance, but the two taking off shirts was a language she understood. There's no way they could be fighting.

Lynda sprung out of her seat when Kojou made a move and attacked the teacher. They were fighting? What?!

Kojou's attacks were fast, much faster then when he fought her, indicating that he didn't seem to be holding back. Super Teacher Karuko dodged the first two, and caught Kojou's knee without too much effort. A sparkle seemed to appear in her eyes as she watched. Holy shit...

To her disappointment, Karuko seemed to end the fight, put his shirt and bandages back on, and headed over to the trampolines to where a red head was sitting, possibly writing/drawing something. He talked to her for a bit, wrapped her ankle in some bandage, left, and came back with an ice pack? How did he know that she was even hurt? Especially in the middle of everything else he was doing? She had to admit, the guy had the eyes of a hawk, and the hearing of something... that hears well.

"Damn Super Teach... way to stay on the ball." She mumbled with a smirk.

Looking up at Asuka, she nodded her head towards Karuko.

"Guy seems to really know what he's doing, huh?"

Fay stopped drawing for a second when she noticed the fight came to a stop. She shrugged the thought off before she began to polish her drawing. She heard the teacher speak and hoped the others would listen. Yeah, I’d rather not be here all day either Hopefully everyone hurries up... She was pulled out of her thoughts when she felt someone walk towards her.

Her expressional eyes looked up at the professor when he spoke. She gave him a friendly smile, which looked real. Did he think before he spoke? May he what exactly? Wait, did he see me out of the corner of his eye and that is why he had to end his match early? You, know w- Her thoughts stopped when he took her ankle. Her body tensed, but she took in a slow deep breath and quickly relaxed it.

Why? How did he know? Her mind went to wander, but then he spoke again. She softly cleared her throat. “Umm okay, but don’t worry about me. I don’t think it is that serious,” she said cheerfully as she closed her drawing pad. She looked at her now bandaged ankle. It hadn’t hurt when he bandaged it, but it felt odd that someone was caring for her. She was the only one who took care of her.

She nodded in response to his comment about getting an ice pack and for her to stay there. I hadn’t planned on going anywhere. If I leave the others will find it unfair most likely or they’ll think I am really hurt or something, She opened her drawing pad again to continue to polish her drawing. When he came back and spoke, his commented made her just want to roll her eyes. She gave him a friendly expression.

“Thank you for the icepack and remember, no need to worry about me. I can take care of myself,” she said sweetly and paused in her speech as she took the icepack. She lifted her sweatpants up and slid the icepack into her sock again her hurt again. It was cold, but she ignored the sensation. She pulled her sweatpants leg down again. After a few seconds she went back to fixing her drawing up and making it look perfect.

Since CJL1290 agreed on a time leap here comes one
THE NEXT MORNING - Time for counseling

Image

Hooray, Alex survived the night. At least Alex took that as a victory after all the problems yesterday, changing rooms and all that since her late roommate mysteriously disappeared. Or gave up. Alex didn't know, since she just had disappeared when the first class started. Which was a quiet bad thing, that meant she had failed. But Alex was rather happy with the replacement, she had nothing against sharing room with Lynda - that just gave Alex more time to fantasies about her and that was something fun to do. At least she had something fun to do at this camp. She could stand the fact that it only was in her imagination, at the moment.

She did her usual morning routines, this time accompanied by Lynda - which was rather strange. Well at least in Alex's opinion, she was used to do everything by herself how and when she wanted to, she was used to being alone in the mornings, so that someone else was there made her feel a bit confused and out of place. She didn't like it that much, that was the down part when it came to sharing the room with someone. Alex had lived on her own for some time so she wasn't used to the constant company. But she didn't say anything she just kept her mouth shut, pretending to be too tired to socialize when she actually was wide awake.

She kept pretending the whole breakfast and the time before the new meeting, she just didn't feel like being friendly at the moment. She had a stone in her stomach which made her feel rather bad. It could also be because now she suffered from an urge to smoke but she couldn't since the teacher had stolen her stash. As she walked into what was the main house, the place were all their classes that didn't involve being outside was going to be kept she located the most faraway place in the room with an open door she could find and sat down. She hoped to be left alone, all the others could sit anywhere they wanted at least it wasn't beside her because no. She had a bad feeling about this. The way how the chairs had been arranged in a deformed circle, how Alex had taken the chair placed beside a bookshelf since the circle was too big to actually be round. It was more like a big C that almost was closed but the wall and to Alex's delight a bookshelf was in the way.

Fay

Beep.Beep.Beep.

Fay straightened her black bow tie before she turned her alarm clock off. Besides her bow tie she wore a white long sleeve button up shirt, short black shirt, white knee high socks, and freshly polished black shoes with a small heel. She looked in the bathroom’s mirror and brushed her hair once more. Perfect. She glanced at her roommate’s empty side of the room and sighed. It bothered her. Why did her roommate just leave? Did she not like her?

“It probably isn’t my fault she left,” she told herself, failing at comforting herself. She grabbed her black leather bag and slid it over her left shoulder and across her chest. She ignored her phone as she felt it vibrate in her skirt pocket. She took a deep breath as she walked out of the room and locked the door behind her. She didn’t feel like going for a quick breakfast so she just headed to the main house. She put a happy smile on her face as she walked through the halls and entered the classroom. There were already two people there. She gave them a small wave.

“Hello, I am Fay. It's a pleasure to see you two again,” she said in a sweetly soft voice. After, she took the seat right next to the wall. Fay placed her bag in her lap once she had crossed her legs. She sat upright with her head held high. Fay pulled out a black leather clock face watch with roman numerals from her skirt’s pocket. She secured it onto her left wrist as she tried not to think. Once it was secure she pulled out a sketchbook and a small pencil case from her bag. Her eyes wandered over the trees she had sketched from the night before. Thoughts of how she could make it better wandered around in her mine. She glanced up at the other two people in the room for a second before she went back to observing her drawing.

Lynda yawned as she sat on the edge of her bed, her alarm long since shut off. It was a new day, so that meant a new roommate, a new class, and new... whatever else could happen. Looking around, she noticed Alex was almost already done with her morning routine.

Not wanting to fall behind, she got out of bed and handled her usual routine. Halfway through brushing, she turned to Alex to say... something. When she moved in last night, not too much was said between them. The sound of the door closing told her it was too late.

Finishing up, she threw on a black zip-up hoodie with an orange t-shirt underneath, black cargo pants, and grey sneakers. Slinging her backpack over her shoulder, she took one last look in the mirror. Her hair was still down, bobbing slightly around her as she turned her head.

Eh, I'll leave it down today. I'm running out of time.

The only time her hair got in the way is during any physical activity. Seeing as she needed to go to a class and sit around, it didn't seem necessary.

After having her quick breakfast, Lynda walked to her class, munching on the toast she took with her. Was she allowed to take food out? No one stopped her, so oh well.

Arriving at the door, she smirked and finished the bread. It was another chance to turn this into an enjoyable experience. With a smile she walked inside and chirped with a "Mornin'!"

Lynda's smile faded when she looked at the class. Where was everyone? Was this it? Surprisingly, they were all familiar faces. That perverted guy was talking to Alex; no surprise, that red headed girl she remembered seeing yesterday was drawing; no surprise, and Kojou was... slumped in a chair fast asleep? Now that was entertaining. The sight of such a composed guy thrown all over a seat like that made it hard not to burst out laughing.

Lynda walked over and sat in a chair next to the red head, giving Alex space and Kojou room to fall if he did. Besides, she hasn't gotten to know the red head yet, and she seemed to be a nice person.

"Hey, I'm Lynda. Hope you don't mind if I sit here." She said to the red head.

What else could she talk about as a conversation starter? Her drawings? She seemed to like doing that.

"Sooo... 'watcha drawin'? A tree?"

Fay
Fay looked up slowly when she heard a voice. It was the male with white hair. He seemed to be trying to speak. Is he okay? Did he not sleep or something? He, he really just fell asleep... She went back to fixing her drawing after a few seconds of watching him. Fay knew she could never just fall asleep in a chair. She took out a light brown drawing pencil as she shaded in the trees.

A while later her body tensed in surprise by a female voice that chirped “Mornin’!”. She looked from under her lashes at the female before she went back to what she was doing. So we have a person who falls asleep in a chair and one who seems to be a morning person. I wonder what the blond girl and the guy with the eye patch are like.

She looked back down at her drawing as she traded the brown pencil for a black one. She worked on the shading in the trees and the shadows. She stopped shading for a second when she noticed the female had walked towards and actually sat down besides her. Fay didn’t think much of it until the female spoke. Her eyes wandered over to meet Lynda’s eyes as she turned her body towards her. Fay smiled as her pencil hovered over the page.

“Hello, I am Fay and it is a pleasure to meet you. I don’t mind if you sit there. Oh and I am not drawing right now. I drew these trees last night. Right now I am just working on the details, colors, an-,well, I am just making it look nice and finishing it to put it in more simple terms. I have other drawings if you want to see them. I could draw you if you like sometime...” she paused as she wondered what else she could say, “Do you like to draw or look at art? Or do you just like to fight? I noticed you and the guy with the white hair guy fighting yesterday.”

"Hi. We should talk.. I didn't mean to be so rude. It really was rude and I know that! It was an idiotic and disgusting thing to do and I'll never touch you again if that's what you want…I'm Aki, care to start over...?”

Oh wow it’s him again. Alex glanced over at him, clearly annoyed by the fact that he was sitting beside her. But she wasn’t going to complain, she was not in the mood to start arguments in the morning. But she wasn’t in the mood to talk either, but at least he had asked for forgiveness. But perhaps he had done it yesterday also? She wasn’t sure, that was not something she had bothered to register in that case. But if he now had said it yesterday it would be great, the more desperate he seemed the better did she feel. It was quite amusing.

She shrugged without looking at him, ”Since you insist, sure, okay I give you a second chance to impress me. But don’t ever mention it again or I’m going to kick your precious area so hard that you won’t be able to use it anymore. Don’t even think I’m kidding.”

After that she simply went back to being shut in and watched as the other came into the room, she remembered most of the faces from yesterday. Well she didn’t know the names on the others but Kojou and Lynda, but there were clearly less people here now from how it had been when everyone checked in. That was rather boring, less people to play with. And no not everything on Alex’s mind has to be interpreted as perverse. This was an honest thought, Alex just liked to have people to do crazy things with – but that was something that was rare at school.

As everyone had taken their seats the teacher from yesterday came in, Karuko. Alex still thought of him as rather appealing, but teachers were still teachers and Alex does have limits. As he took a chair and sat down in the failed circle Alex watched him carefully, this didn’t feel good. It felt worse than before. She had actually hoped for him to stand in front of the class and talk, try to make them learn something. But no… He sat down as if he was going to listen. It made the inside crawl on Alex, she had no intention of talking in front of these people. Not about what she thought it was going to be about.

Karuko cleared his throat before he took tone, making everyone listen up. Actually he had taken the empty seat beside Kojou, it was the only one left – clearly it was because the guy was almost tipping down from the chair onto the lap of well Karuko at the moment. “Today’s first class is going to be therapy, group therapy to be exact. We are not going to handle anything too difficult this time around, those things we will manage later as we all have gotten to know each other. That brings us back to today’s session, this time we will focus on getting to know each other. Tell us your name and a little bit about yourself, you don’t need to mention why you came here in the first place – just some info, like what you like or what else you can come up with.” With a strict but gentle smile Karuko turned to the sleeping Kojou and took a firm grip of his shoulder to wake him up, “Why don’t you start since you seem so eager to do it? Tell us your name and a bit about yourself, sleepyhead.”

Kojou was roused by a large amount of pressure digging into his shoulder. He was stuck staring stupidly as things slowly came into focus. Things were a bit off, things were quiet and he wasn't in his room.What's going on? The groggy thought slowly surfaced as he tried to process his surrounding.

" Your name and a bit about yourself." A patiently firm voice gave the impression of someone repeating something towards the slowly awakening teenager. Kojou almost didn't recognize who the voice belonged to, but the pretty faced teacher was remembered if the reason hadn't yet clicked.

" Kojou from the Arima family," the voice came out in a near mechanical fashion before light finally sparked into Kojou's eyes.

" My interests include fights, parties, sex of all kinds -anything that gets adrenaline pumping really; trying new things and putting weaklings in their place. I've more personal interests and hobbies, but I see no reason to share those. Things I dislike: mornings, wearing clothes while the rest is classified." Ego up and ready for action, Kojou leaned back into his seat with his usual arrogant grin.

"I'm here because apparently having fun in school is against the rules. Oh and when do we get some free time, I've got dates to plan." For the last sentence, Kojou directly addressed Karuko but his eyes greedily traveled around the circle to weigh his options.

Lynda couldn't keep the smile away when Fay asked if she liked to fight. Before she could go and give her a passionate speech about it, the blue haired teacher Karuko walked in and joined the group. She whispered "Maybe I'll tell you later." to Fay before paying attention to the teacher. He said for everyone to say something about themselves before shaking Kojou awake and telling him to go first.

Lynda listened to what Kojou had to say. Yup, he was as prideful as she though he was. She wondered if he would jump out of a plane with no parachute if he could just for the sheer rush of it all. Lynda was a bit surprised when Karuko looked over at her and motioned it was her turn to speak.

My turn already? Okay. I'm Lynda Romaine. I'm here because I like to fight for fun. What I like? Hanging around, relaxing, fighting of any kind, and when I'm feeling creative, play my violin. I grew up average, don't have some tragic back story to share, and other than that, I'm pretty normal. Well, actually, I do have something else."

Lynda sighed when she remembered her parents and how they scolded her when they sent her here. She hung her head as she spoke again, this time in a quieter, more crestfallen voice.

I was raised in a household with parents who wanted nothing but perfection from me. Whenever I messed up, they would scold me pretty bad. Of course when they found out about my fighting, they sent me here. They didn't even say 'bye', or 'have a nice summer' before dumping me here."

She looked back up at everyone, trying to come off as more positive.

"So... if I seem to act like a perfectionist, just let me know I'm trying too hard and I'll back off. Can't help the way I was raised, you know?"

Karuko nodded his head as he was listening. Lynda exhaled, getting that info off her chest. Karuko pointed over at Fay, saying that it was her turn.

Fay
Fay watched and listened to Lynda when she replied. She nodded in response. Fay quietly and carefully listen as the teacher and then Kojou spoke. Well, I think everyone is interested in sex; it is quite enjoyable. Hmm, he’s funny though...he doesn't like clothes. Oh, Lynda is speaking now...She plays the violin? I wonder if she brought it with her. I would like to hear her play it one day. Maybe I will hang around her to just hear her play some music one day. When Lynda began to speak about how she was raised, Fay's thoughts stopped. She pushed the feelings she felt away. She could understand Lynda’s situation, especially about the scolding. Her grandparents seemed to love to scold her each chance they got, about every little, tiny thing.

She was surprised when she was called up next to talk, but she didn't let it show on her face. She put her things away in her bag and rolled her shoulders backs. She smiled at everyone sweetly before she softly cleared her throat.

“Hello everyone, I am simply Fay. If you haven’t noticed, I like to draw, but in general I am good at doing things with my hands. Like I can and like to build things and sew,” she said with a friendly face and smile. Fay didn’t know what else to say. She wasn’t good at talking about herself, as she didn’t like to do it. She didn’t want people to get to know her. Not to mention she felt her mood taking a darker side, but she did her best to ignore it. Anyways, why would she want any one of these complete strangers to know anything more about her that wasn’t or wouldn’t be obvious? Also, the last thing she was going to do was tell anyone why she was there. She never planned on letting anyone know why she was there. Fay looked at Karuko to let him know she was done speaking.

Karuko decided to not push Fay try to say anything more this time. He simply nodded before he gestured to Aki to speak next. Fay gaze wandered over to Aki as she waited for him to start speaking. She wanted any attention she may have gotten drawn away from her. Talking about herself, even a little, made her feel awkward. She kept a blank expression on her face as she waited for Aki to speak.

Aki Kimura




Three of the others had already told the others about themselves but Aki hadn't really paid attention. He had heard something about sex but not even that made him interested. After all, it wasn't Alex that said it. To say that he had a crush on her was an understatement, especially since he was sitting there, thinking about how she'd look in a collar with hand cuffs. Probably really sexy... And so vulnerable, god he wanted to see that now! He glanced towards her and was surprised that he found her looking at him. So was some of the others as well. He heard the teacher say something about it being his turn to tell the others about himself. What a bother. What should he tell them? He took a calm breath before opening his mouth to speak.

"I'm Aki Kimura, live in room six with that guy over there." he says and nod towards Yasu. "My hobbies? Drinking, smoking and sex. I love BDSM, mostly S&M, collars, whips and hand cuffs. Why I got here is none of your business and my other hobbies is not something you'll ever know about." He probably didn't sound too friendly but still, who cares. As long as he didn't make her think he was a weirdo. A quiet laugh slipped out of his mouth. Yeah, right. He told them that he likes collars and S&M, who the fuck would not back of? Great, just great. Well, he can't really take it back now, now can he? He glanced towards her while the teacher told his roommate that it was his turn. Whatever, it's not like he cares anyways. He's just scared that she'll think he's disgusting. Well, that's life.

Yasu had listened quietly but intently to everyone of the presentation- taking note of what everyone said, including their names. He was bad at remembering names, which just made him try harder. The white haired boy who'd been sleeping was Koujo. He was like the polar opposite of Yasu, though the teenager couldn't help but feel slightly awed by him. He was in a way so open and straight forward, which Yasu admired. Even if it did seem like he tried to sound cool. Lynda was the brunette who liked to fight and played the violin. Yasu decided that the latter was also quite admirable. Next up was Fay the redhead- she enjoyed drawing. Unlike the other two, she seemed a little more levelheaded... but that might just have been the case because she didn't mention enjoying fights. The last one up was Aki, who's words caused a slight blush to dust Yasu's cheeks. He wasn't even sure what to think about it- even if he knew it didn't really matter.

Before he knew it, Karuko was looking at him. He was the next one up. Feeling heat rise to his cheeks and a wave of nervousness washing over him, Yasu tried to find his voice. It took him a moment, but eventually he managed to speak. He was shy and had never been good at speaking before crowds. To prevent his hands from shaking, he gripped the book on his lap tightly. "M-my name is Yasu Watanabe, but feel free to call me Yasu. I like...uhm...cooking...and reading...a-and animals," he looked down, not able to shake the feeling that he was awfully out of place. His hands were shaking, awfully, and he tightened his grip of the book further, "I-I'm here because I punched someone..." the purple haired giant admitted bashfully. His voice was deep but gentle, just like his demeanor. He did not just feel out of place. He also looked quite out of place. "And kicked them... and threw them against a wall and-"

"That's enough, Yasu," Karuko softly interrupted his painfully honest, somewhat embarrassed confession. It was quite clear that Yasu regretted whatever he had done. However, being the honest person he was, he saw no reason holding back about it in the introduction. Yasu simply was that sort of person. "Thank you," the teacher added before turning his attention to Alex, "It's your turn, dear."

As the session progressed Alex got more and more uncomfortable where she sat, why did so many mention why they had been placed here? Did that mean she had to mention it also? She didn't want to do that. No, absolutely not. It was embarrassing enough that Aki had found her secret on his own. But there was still those who hadn't mentioned it, no one had told them that they had to say it so that would mean that she could ignore it too? One thing she had noticed when listening to everyone’s confessions - or introductions, it depended on how you put it, was that everyone was very different. Well some was more like each other than some others. Some of the things they mentioned was clearly surprising - like Lynda playing violin. One more person that had surprised her was the giant, whose name she had already forgotten, who clearly was different then she had thought he would be when she noticed his presence - which was right now when he had introduced himself. He didn't make much sound. Well the biggest surprise must be the person sitting next to her however, that was not something she had imagined him doing - or saying out loud. Didn't he have any shame in his body? Didn't seem like that.

"It's your turn, dear."

Alex stared at Karuko and blinked, already? Crap. She hadn't prepared what to say and she didn't want to blurt out to much like Aki. It was in a rather embarrassed gesture she scratched the back of her head, "Uh... Well... I'm Alexandra Rohden, but call me Alex! A European who has traveled around the globe with my parent's but is now living on my own since they moved while I stayed here to finish school. But to put it simple, I'm too stupid for school. And well that basically why I'm here..." That was a lie, a big one. Sure she would probably have to redo the last year anyway because of her bad results but the reason she got here was for skipping school the last months. "When it comes to hobbies I don't really have any I think... Well I guess I enjoy cuddling with people. But I wouldn't call it a hobby of mine, I just really like being close to others - be that girls or boys, I'm not picky. Uhm... I like to study language however and snowboard - skiing is also okay."

With that Alex finished, she believed she had said everything she wanted to say now. And probably a little too much anyway, she had been dragged into the intimate discussion since so many before her had mentioned it. Now she was regretting it, it felt like she would be judged for saying it out loud like in school. Those who had mentioned it before her were mostly just guys so, yeah... now she had ruined her own appearance once more. Why did she have to sabotage herself? It was with a tired sigh she sunk lower down in her seat as Karuko turned his gaze towards one more of those who hadn't excellent herself yesterday.

With a friendly smile Karuko spoke to Ayako, "Now it's only you left, will you give us the honor of introducing yourself?"

So, lemme get this straight. The white haired hottie who spoke first seems like a totally though guy. Would that make him best suited for an aggressive seme or badass uke? He seems like someone who wants to be in control... but badass uke tend to grapple for power as well, so that's no excuse. I'll have to get back to him! Ayako was seated a bench somewhere in the middle, her golden gaze gliding from person to person as she carefully analyzed them. Barely anyone had noticed her enter, due to the fact that she was so small... and for once had kept herself from making any unnecessary noise. The pineapple head who openly admitted to be into BDSM totally looks like... he could actually be a badass uke too. I mean he's totally trying to make himself sound cool, but probably deep down he's a real softy! It's decided, then! In bed Kojou'd be seme and Aki the badass uke grappling for power! Ayako could practically feel her mouth water as all sorts of obscenities played out in her mind.

The one to speak after Aki was Yasu, a tall, purple haired giant. Ayako found herself frowning. With three hot guys, how was she going piece them together now? After a moment of hard thought, it hit her and her expression lit up. Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god... make it a threesome! Yeeees, I can see it now. Three hot guys, all over each other in bed. No, shower? The nurses office? What about-

"Now it's only you left, will you give us the honor of introducing yourself?"

Whatever else she had been about to suggest disappeared into oblivion as she noticed Karoku's gaze on her. Or Yasu could have an illicit relationship with the teacher! she added in her mind cheerfully before standing up on her chair to gain height and grab everyone's attention. Dramatically, she cleared her throat.

"Good morning, ladies, gentlemen and others! Thank you for giving me the honor of introducing myself. I present to you," she made a slight, dramatic pose, "ta-da-da-da! Ayako Takashiro!" she bowed, grinning quite mischievously as she clasped her hands together, "I'm sixteen years old, like drawing, writing and cosplaying... I'm here because who else would make your day?" and with that said, she bowed again before once more taking her seat. While she absolutely had no problems making a clown of herself in front of other people, she found it somewhat harder speaking to them directly. She didn't know why, but she simply did.

"... Thank you, Ayako," Karuko clasped his hands together to grab everyone's attention after Ayako's little...uh...show? "Time goes fast when you're having fun, no?" He smiled at everyone before glancing at his bracelet clock, "It's just about time for lunch now. Before you head out, though, I'd like to inform you about the upcoming lesson. Around 2 PM I want all of you at the bulletin board. For your next assignment you'll be divided into teams. Once you get there, you'll find out which team you are in. That's all for now. Class dismissed!"

Kojou was relieved when the circle had run its course. Yeah, he'd gotten a good look at the other people in the room and even made his list of potential...playmates. But he didn't like having to sit still the entire time and quickly leaped to his feet when dismissed. The fact he'd missed any semblance of breakfast only gave him an extra reason to hustle to lunch.

" Most interesting thing you've said all day teach." Without concern for the chair he'd until recently occupied, Kojou strode towards the door and up ended the seat in the process. He wasn't trying to make a mess, it was simply his 'use and discard' mentality for things. He didn't make the door before Karuko again caught him by the shoulder and pointedly indicated he right the chair in question. Kojou put the seat back with only a minimal amount of grumbling before again making his departure. He made an effort to catch up with his fellow students and pointedly looked for teachers before speaking his mind.

" Well this sounds like a total pain. So who's up for a little 'show up for attendance and bail'? Y'know call or steal a ride, hit up a club or ship of to my place and just have a good time?Maybe come back just in time to look like we cared what was going on here." Rather than words of confidence his sentence was mostly spoken in ignorance or the rules...he'd simply thrown the sheet away and most likely hadn't listened much further. The teenager shrugged again before 'compromising'.

"Hell I'm willing to settle just for a quick smoke or drink. Don't know about you guys, but I actually got searched before arrival so I'm dry."

Lynda rose from her seat and made her way out the door, keeping the next activity in mind. After all, she didn't want to be late and be one step closer to being kicked out. She hated having to be such a good girl all the time. She just wanted to do something that wasn't work or class. She swallowed her pride as she walked; she had no choice, she had to. For her family.

Besides, the classes weren't all that bad. She learned a lot from everyone who had spoken. Some were secretive, while others were pretty open with themselves. Well... maybe Aki was a bit too open. It seemed like half of the class liked getting laid or other types of close physical contact. Her roommate included. Did that mean that Alex would ask her for random hugs or something...? She did say she wasn't picky about girls or boys. She didn't have problems with hugging people, but if someone asked her for a bit more... well, it'll get awkward.

Lynda had no idea what she would do in such a situation, because she has never been in one like that before. The closest thing to intimacy she has felt is when an opponent was trying to wrestle her to the ground. She inwardly sighed when she realized on just how clueless she was about these things. The worst part? She couldn't just ask everyone else about it; it'll be too awkward, and whatever image of her they had would be replaced by something along the lines of naive.

She was wrapped up enough of her thoughts she almost didn't hear Kojou making a proposition to the group. Something about showing up and bailing? His place? Was he offering to escape to his home instead of going to class? As fun as that sounded... she fought the urge to accept the offer.

"Hell I'm willing to settle just for a quick smoke or drink. Don't know about you guys, but I actually got searched before arrival so I'm dry."

That was something she could agree with.

"Well... I don't smoke or drink alcohol if that's what your asking, but I don't mind hanging out a bit before class. A break would be nice." Lynda mentioned, looking at everyone else and wondering who would join in.

Alex listened to the teacher talk about the next lesson, teams? Well she could deal with that. It didn't sound so terrible. She actually felt a bit positive now, she was tired of working on her own - she wanted to lean on others and let them do the work. Yes, she was serious. She hoped that a team challenge would give her that opportunity. But as the other's left she accompanied them, following the group some steps behind them. Sure she could jump right into it and force them to be with her, but she didn't want too. She wanted to feel how the vibes felt before approaching them again. It would be hard to be here for such a long time after screwing everything up, that was why she was cautious.

She listened to Kojou's proposal and smiled, she wouldn't say no to something like that. But well, you never knew what the task was going to be about. Just because you show up to the introduction doesn’t mean you will get attendance. It could be a group challenge in front of the teacher or something else. But Alex had a hard time imagining it being so easy to just leave and well if it wasn't one wrong step and then goodbye she would probably join. But she knew that if she didn't succeed with this she would get kicked out of her school and if that happened she had no idea what she was going to do.

"Hell I'm willing to settle just for a quick smoke or drink. Don't know about you guys, but I actually got searched before arrival so I'm dry."

"Well... I don't smoke or drink alcohol if that's what your asking, but I don't mind hanging out a bit before class. A break would be nice."

Alex approached the two, "I wouldn't mind a break either, and there is some time until the next thing is going to start so... By the way Kojou, if you do get your hands on something, anything, would you mind letting me know? I can pay of course. Teach took everything from me too after he shoved you out of the room. "

Alex may sound desperate but she kind of was too. And she had already dirtied her reputation today so it didn't really matter if she ruined it a bit more. And well, most people did seem to have addictions - and the same as hers - so they shouldn't judge her too much, right? It was a guess from her side.

A kid with goggles joined their little group and gave his input. Lynda was about to say a joke about the streaking thing when...

“HEEYYY YOU GUYS!!! DO YOU KNOW A GIRL NAMED FAYYY?? I NEED TO SEE HER AND GET SOME OF HER HAIR!”

Lynda was a little startled when a flash of pink came from nowhere and started screaming, assaulting her unsuspecting ears. She almost hopped behind someone to use them as a shield.

“Ooopsies I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Adelaide Shino, but you can call me…ADDIE!”

Lynda eyed the new girl who showed up with suspicion. What was her deal? She wasn't just loud, she was obnoxiously loud. She seemed nice though, but maybe too nice... childlike even. She couldn't shake that there was something off about this girl... something unsettling.

She was looking for Fay? The red-headed girl who liked to draw? Why would she want her hair? Fay didn't mention she had an admirer. Sure, Lynda knew where Fay was, but was it even a good idea to go and get her?

Kojou started to talk to her. Lynda took this as an opportunity and sneaked back to the other room. Where was she?

”Sorry if I’m making you uncomfortable, I can stop if you want me to. I’m just joking with you!”

No that wasn't her, although it was a little amusing to see one of the most... open people around having a conversation with one of the more withdrawn people here. She spotted her on the other side of the room.

"Hey Fay. Look, did you know that there's this sweet, loud girl with pink hair looking for you with this look in her eyes and wants some of your hair? She said her name was Addie... or something. You know her?"

She let that information sink in a bit. Whoever she was, she wouldn't let her get some of her hair if she was in her shoes. She inwardly sighed, realizing that she would have to help if she needs it; her conscience wouldn't let her walk away.

So... this girl seems pretty weird, so I can help you sneak back to your room, for a fee of course. Nah, I'm kidding. For free, and as a friend."

Lynda may have just met Fay, but she considered her a friend. Well, she considered most people friends unless they proved that they weren't one. Besides, she feared for her safety; she knew when someone had a few screws loose when she sees it.

After taking the lunch break to just calm herself down and collect her thoughts Alex felt better. She was not as upset anymore, and she had realized that she had been childish. But it was the whole camp thing that weighted her down, it tired her mentally and physically somehow. She couldn't stand it. It was like she had been put into prison. But at least her thoughts had gone quiet again after lying in the bed and staring up into the ceiling, sure she was a bit hungry but that was not something that bothered her too much. So when it was time for the new class she rise from the bed and left the cottage walking over to the bulletin board to find that some other's already had arrived. She gave them a quick smile before folding her arms to wait for the teacher.

Shortly after Karuko arrived with the new arrival while other camp members gathered around him to hear what he had to say and with the same gentle smile as always he greeted them all. "I'm happy to see so many has made their way's over here already. So to our next lesson I hope you all brought your phones with you because you will need them..." The smile got a bit wider as he spoke and he started to hand out paper sheets to everyone, "Don't look yet, okay? It will be a surprise. I will explain it for you in just a moment," quietly he continued to hand out the folded printouts and when everyone had none he struck his hands together to get their attention.

"Okay now you all are probably wondering what this all is about and I will tell you. Like I said earlier this is going to be a group task, but surprise, surprise you are going to be let out of the campground! Good surprise, yes? But don't think you will be able to slack because I will be standing by the gate's taking your names as you arrive and I want you back before two hours has passed. Aren't you back before that I will lock the gate. You still think you will be able to play around while getting to go outside? Noo, no, no! That's what you need your phones for. Take a look at the paper's I handed you."

As all the other's opened the sheet of paper they had got Alex did also, watching the sentences with confusion. What was this supposed to be? She couldn't understand anything of it.

- What has branches and leaves and no bark?
A place

- What goes up and down but never moves
Inside that place

- I have bark but do not bite!
Outside that place

- What is filled six days a week but if you don't own it you can't take a peek
Anyone

- What kind of men are always above board?
A place

- What's black & white and full of fuzz?
A place

- What won't run long without winding?
A place

- What is the beginning of eternity, the end of time and space, the beginning of every end and the end of every race?
Anyone

- If you break me I do not stop working, if you touch me I may be snared, if you lose me nothing will matter. What am I?
Anyone

- The man who invented it doesn’t want it, the man who bought it doesn’t need it, and the man who need it doesn’t know, what is it?
A place


Karuko cleared his throat again to get their attention once again, "What you are reading at the moment is riddles, I want you to work together and figure them out. When you know what it is you go to that place or that thing and take a photograph of it. I will check the photographs after everyone has returned to see if you have done it. You must at least taken pictures of seven of the ten things the riddles tell you about. If your group has a hard time figuring it out then take help of another one, I hope every one of you will help each other’s!"

Alex blinked shocked by what she was told, riddles? Was he kidding? Was they supposed to be able to figure this one’s out? She had no idea what they were talking about. Was this supposed to be places in their town? Seriously? She just stared at the paper, making creases in it because of hard she held it in her hands. Now that frustration came back, they were suspecting to much of them. Did they think it was geniuses that went to this camp?

As Alex had been spacing out Karuko had already been starting to mention the groups but she get back to her senses just to hear the rest of them. "Next group is consisting of Fay, Emmaleese, Lynda, Adelaide, Kojou and Tatsuo. The last group is Aki, Alex, O-Ren, Renji, Alfred and Daisuke." Putting his hands together again Karuko smiled gently at the kids while watching their confused faces, "Well then, good luck and have fun!"

Lynda took several more bites of her food before she took a gulp of her chocolate milk. A few minutes passed before Fay was done eating. She told her to take her time and left to go wash up.

"Wow she eats fast. I'm not even halfway done eating; Better pick up the pace."

Lynda started eating at a faster pace, stopping to drink just so she wouldn't choke. She probably looked like a starved wolf by this point, but she didn't want to be late; her parents wouldn't have bad news of being kicked out of this camp. Fay soon came back and told her to take her time before pulling out her drawing book. She also mentioned that Addie should be there, an how interesting it would be. Lynda had almost forgotten about the pink-haired girl that made them sneak here to begin with. If she tried to get to Fay again with ill intentions, she would have to have a... talk with her.

After finishing, she returned her tray and told Fay she was ready. The food was okay, but the full stomach was the best part; she was a little irritable when she was hungry.

Arriving at the bulletin board, she was relieved when they reached there right before his Karuko's speech started. Lynda folded her arms and nodded her head from time to time as he explained the details. They would be going into the city on a scavenger hunt? With riddles as their only clues? Not riddles! Anything but that!

A sigh escaped her lips when she received her sheet and looked over it; she didn't understand any of these! Riddles was one of her weaknesses... she could never seem to get a lot of them right. Every now and then she could make a lucky guess, but the rest were dead wrong.

Worst of all, they had to take pictures of the answer. What if she brought her phone back and the picture was horribly wrong? God, that would be embarrassing. Now he was mentioning groups. It seemed to take forever until she heard her name. Fay was with her, cool. Kojou was a nice choice too. Ayako and Tatsuo were currently unknowns. Adelaide? Wasn't that Addie? Shit.

She glanced over at Fay to see if she had reacted to Addie being on the same team as them. Sure, she didn't like it, but they were a team and had to work together. Besides, there was no way she could solve these riddles on her own.

Trying to be more positive, she put on a smile and waved her arm in the air while yelling "Hey, Team Lynda! Over here!" to the crowd of people. Lets see what she had to work with.

As Alex still was trying to use her brain somehow, or try to act like she had one, people started moving around forming the groups. Calling out to each other’s since well everyone was still pretty new and it was hard to memorize all the names. Impossible perhaps. Alex wasn’t that bothered by it, she hadn’t heard anyone shout that they were on her team and she already knew who Aki was so she simply glanced at him to see if he went somewhere – if he knew someone else. She sure knew a lot of people on the penultimate team but her own – not so much. She would probably remember them from the introduction session earlier this morning when seeing them but well just calling them out by names told her nothing.

"Hey, Team Lynda! Over here!"

Alex looked away from Aki to look over at Lynda as she called out, geez Alex wished she was on that team. It would give her a chance to get to know those people a bit more, those which she actually had gotten a quiet good connection with earlier. Or she believed so anyway. And it would give her a reason to spend more time with Lynda which would give Alex more time to figure out how to… jump her. Or at least kiss her. Because that was a goal she had set up for herself, by the end of this summer Lynda’s lips would be Alex’s by some point. For a small amount of time before she would get slapped or even better punched. It was a big disappointment to be on another team than hers.

“Oy! Last team called over here!”

Alex shifted her gaze away from Lynda as someone from her own team finally spoke up, she saw the hand for a split second beside the purple haired giant but it disappeared just as fast. So her team was the purple haired giant and some others? Disappointing, he hadn’t given Alex such a god impression when introducing himself earlier. Sure the part about him rambling about how he had beaten someone up was fun, the other personality – not so much so. But Alex strutted away over there anyway, she was curious to see who the other’s was. And when passing some taller people she saw the other guy hanging around the giant, a pleasant surprise. Studying the guy’s hair and oh!- piercings, a big smile spread across Alex’s lips. He on the other hand seemed like a lot of fun.

”Well hi there fellow team members, I’m Alex – if you had already forgotten my splendid introduction earlier.” Alex smile grew bigger, but on the inside she was blushing, but she hid her shame by trying to act like it had been on purpose. “So am I the only one that’s not looking forward to this because well… I suck at riddles. So I was thinking maybe we could team up with another team? What about Lynda’s team? She’s pretty nice and well I’ve been talking to Kojou too a bit and he’s not that bad either.” Alex got quiet for a short amount of time while grinning, but before someone could protest about it she turned around and waved energetic towards Lynda, “Hey, Lynda, what do you say about teaming up so we can get this done with as fast as possible? The faster we are done the sooner we can just play around outside this freaking campground! Come on, you know you and your team want to say yes!”

Lynda waited patiently for her team to heed her call and come to her. Just where where they? The crowd was big enough that she was having trouble seeing anyone she recognized. Did anyone even hear her over the noise of all the conversations inside the group of people?

“Oy! Last team called over here!”

Lynda turned her head towards the voice, unable to remember who it belonged to. She spotted the guy as he lowered his hand and put it back into his pocket. He seemed to be a cool and relaxed type of guy, but then again, a lot of the people here seemed to. He seemed nice though. Something about him screamed "rebel" if the eye tattoo and the piercings was anything to go by. Come to think of it, he kind of reminded her of Alex.

She went back to scanning the crowd for a bit before she saw Alex happily waving at her.

“Hey, Lynda, what do you say about teaming up so we can get this done with as fast as possible? The faster we are done the sooner we can just play around outside this freaking campground! Come on, you know you and your team want to say yes!”

Lynda smirked at the idea; it was smart. putting two teams together would be more brainpower, which means they would finish faster and get to actually do something fun.

"Sure, sounds like fun! Ya got a deal!" Lynda shouted back. She started walking through the crowd towards the other group. What could be something fun to do when they were done? She didn't even know what everyone liked. Well, whatever it was... it was better than figuring out riddles. When she made it to the other group, she folded her arms with a smile.

"Alright, I'm here. So... who're we missing?

Alfred James

♨♨♨♨♨♨

“Al, it isn’t good for your body to be jogging like that and it isn’t safe for you to run at night without anyone knowing.” The nurse tapped her fingers and glared at Alfred through her wire framed glasses. Alfred innocently smiled at her, holding a glass of orange juice. It was his sixth time in the nurse’s office and she was beginning on what Al thought was her fifth speech on health to him.

He felt bad for her, he really did but old habits where often hard to break- especially the habits that tend to be destructive. Even though Alfred has been here since the beginning like everyone else, he has gone practically invisible as he had been staying in the nurse’s office. This was all because Alfred had been sneaking out quite early from his cabin and began to take up the activity of jogging at night until the sun rose again; not only did he feel sick after nights like the last, but he would be in so much pain that he was unable to participate in any of the activities with the rest of the group.

Alfred suddenly considered himself lucky that he was caught last night before he was able to do any intense damage to himself like he had done before; he was rounded up in the nurse’s office with snacks and the nurse watched him the entire night. Of course he felt pangs of guilt in his stomach but he couldn’t help it. It was something he had done beforehand to escape Will’s terrors and it was a nightmare Al couldn’t seem to escape. He was afraid of sleeping at night, especially with a boy he didn’t know and who seemed like the type of person that wouldn’t hesitate to bully around someone.

Ah, he was making assumptions again. Al shook his head lightly, mentally scolding himself for making such assumptions on someone he didn’t know; the boy could be nice and friendly. Once again, Al wouldn’t know as he had never even spoken to the boy, let alone met him. Their relationship only escalated to a single look when Al had first moved into their room and that was it as Al had done everything in his power to avoid being alone with the boy. While everyone had already found their group of friends, Al was either in his group of depressed girls or vacating the nurse’s corridors.

He thought over the reaction his poor mother would make if she had known that Al wasn’t even trying to improve and slightly cringed at the look she’d give him. The pangs of guilt that gathered in his stomach increased and made him feel nauseous; he began to desperately want out of this small room and into the wide open campsite. Al looked over at the nurse who was still lecturing before placing his orange juice down on the table next to them and smiled widely.

“I apologize for my irresponsible actions,” Al began. The nurse became silent and crossed her arms over her chest to watch him. It was the first time Al had apologized for his actions instead of him apologizing for himself being there which caught the nurse’s attention quite quickly. “I just realized that what I am doing probably won’t help me out much and I just really want to say I’m sorry. From now on, I will try to improve myself.” He looked at her as she nodded, obviously thinking that her lectures had finally struck a chord with him. After twenty minutes of talking, the nurse dismissed him for the upcoming activity; Al carried a small box of animal cracker and made his way towards where the group activities were being held.

When he arrived to the bulletin, the teacher had already begun to assign groups and he was handed a piece of paper which Al immediately looked at, seeing that it was a bunch of riddles. Al sat in silence until his name was called to be put in a group with other peers; while he normally didn’t have problems with making friends, Al felt a bit nervous as he didn’t even know the names of the group he was put in. Nonetheless, Al walked over towards the already forming group, not missing any of the actions that were already taking place.

"Hey, Team Lynda! Over here!" Al’s eyes followed everyone else’s as they stared at Lynda. Al’s attention on her didn’t last long as another person had begun to already call his team.
“Oy! Last team called over here!” Without much choice, Alfred walked towards the people who where crowding around the boy that had imitated the girl in calling her team together. When Al got to the area where the team was, a tall blonde haired girl popped up with a smile plastered to her face.

”Well hi there fellow team members, I’m Alex – if you had already forgotten my splendid introduction earlier. So am I the only one that’s not looking forward to this because well… I suck at riddles. So I was thinking maybe we could team up with another team? What about Lynda’s team? She’s pretty nice and well I’ve been talking to Kojou too a bit and he’s not that bad either. Hey, Lynda, what do you say about teaming up so we can get this done with as fast as possible? The faster we are done the sooner we can just play around outside this freaking campground! Come on, you know you and your team want to say yes!”

Blown away at how fast this girl could talk, Alfred stayed quiet as Lynda agreed to join their teams happily. These two girls made Al look at them with a small smile; they where bubbly and happy which was something Alfred envied a little bit. After making a small mental note of improving himself in that specific area, Alfred turned to the team and smiled childishly.

“I’m sorry I didn’t introduce myself before. My name is Alfred.” He said simply, thinking it might be a good idea to introduce himself to the group as he hadn’t before. Al held the box of animal crackers out to the group. “If you guys liked, you can have some animal crackers.” He smiled at his offering, hoping that they didn’t find his belated introduction rude of any sort.

Fay
Fay followed Lynda to the bulletin board. She stayed a few feet away from her as she listened to Karuko speak. She held her wrist behind herself as she waited for him to finish speaking. Why do we need our phones? I don’t use my phone very much…maybe the others will just use their phones and I won’t have to use mine. She grabbed the piece of paper. Fay wondered what could be on it, but decided to wait for him to explain even if she was natural about surprises. Oh, I forgot this was a group task, but I am not surprised. We get to leave the campground? It sounds nice that we can leave, but only two hours? I don’t want to be doing this task the whole time I am off of this campground though.

Slowly she opened the papers and quickly read it over. No idea. Maybe that answer is an elevator? A tree. No idea. No idea. No idea. No idea. No idea. No idea. No idea. She stop her thoughts and tried not to think about the riddles as Karuko spoke once more. Wait, why are we in groups if the groups can work together? This makes no sense. When he mentioned the groups she only took note of the names of the people in her group. She kept a blank expression when she heard Adelaide was in her group. Fay decided not to think about that, as it would make her feel not so great. She didn’t even hear Karuko speak again.

Her eyes wandered over to Lynda when she heard her speak. Lynda was one of her teammates. Though, she stayed still and didn’t go to Lynda right away. She decided to wait for everyone else to get into his or her groups. Also, she had to keep herself calm because Addie was also in her room. Even if she hadn’t seen her yet her heartbeat rose and herself heat up. Fay was distracted from her little panic attack when she had heard someone else calling out. Something about the last team called over there. Next, she had heard the female, Alex, calling out to Lynda. Alex wants to team up her team with our team? Her idea sounds good so who cares. I like the idea of having free time while outside.

When she heard Lynda agree she slowly followed behind her. She was more than a few feet behind as people were just in her way. It annoyed her slightly, but she ignored that feeling. She just got near Lynda a few minutes after she had asked whom they were missing so she didn’t hear the question. Fay smiled at everyone and stood next to Lynda. She saw some guy she hadn’t seen before holding out animal crackers.

“Hello everyone, I am Fay. I am glad I have the pleasure of working with all of you. Also, I believe the answer to the second and third question on this piece of paper is an elevator and a tree respectfully,” she stated. She gave everyone another smile before she folded the piece of paper into her pocket with her phone. Everyone didn't need to have their sheet out, one paper pre group would have been efficient.

"Sure, sounds like fun! Ya got a deal!"

Alex did a small dance of victory on the inside while the outside just continued to grin towards the others. But that Lynda had accepted the offer felt like a good thing. Alex was looking forward to meeting all the new people, not only on her team now but also those on Lynda's. Perhaps there would be a lot of other fun figures? There seemed to be quite a bunch of different people around. When she was in the mood for it she felt rather exited for all the company she could get. She wanted to meet everyone, talk with everyone. So when people gathered around and started to introduce themselves with their name to give people a hint Alex felt even more exited.

There was this guy she wasn't sure if she had seen at the introduction earlier who addressed himself as Alfred, the name didn't say her anything. But it was not like she was surprised, she had a tendency to forget things pretty fast, Alex had the memory of a goldfish. Then there was Fay, she remembered her because of that weird girl from earlier that had been talking about them sharing rooms. And another new face Alex couldn't decide if she had seen earlier or not. And he never said what his name was so Alex wasn't sure who he was. But he was apparently in Lynda's group since he was getting touchy with her? Should Alex interpret that other's also was interested in her? Probably not the same way Alex was but anyway, Alex didn't like competition because she knew she had no chance against guys. Even if she wasn't interested in Lynda on an emotional level.

"So if the second and the third question are supposed to be a tree and an elevator, where's the place they're supposed to be at? The first riddle describes the place, or so it says at least, I think? Maybe I have understood it all wrong," Alex shrugged and looked down at her paper again, trying to solve anything of it but she still didn't get any of it. "But since some of the riddles is described as an place, that must mean that there is only one or a few of those around the city, right? If it isn't like that it wouldn't have a description under it, wouldn't it? Or yeah... That's just my thought of it all I guess? I don't really know."

-Renji-

The first person to approach him after his half hearted declaration attempting to gather his team was the same blond girl he’d noticed heading towards the cabins earlier. This time, however, she seemed to be in a much better mood, smiling and grinning as she introduced herself. Wasting no time after her introduction, Alex, as she called herself, called over to the Lynda girl for their teams to join up. A small smile played on his lips as he opted to remain at the sidelines as multiple others appeared, introducing themselves in a variety of ways. He simply observed them and how they seemed to respond and communicate. It was amusing to him to say the least. One boy even offered them animal crackers, with was perfectly fine, but it was a most unexpected greeting. Still, the one that caught his attention more so than the others was, ironically, the guy who failed to mention his name. He definitely seemed like an interesting one, and he’d even beaten him to throwing a casual arm around the Lynda girl.

Alex spoke up about the riddles, reminding him that that Fay girl’d made known she knew two of the answers already. He smiled. Watching them figure them out seemed like it’d be entertaining after all. He was about to give his insight on the next riddle that Alex mentioned when yet another person joined their group. For some reason he thought she seemed a bit darker than the rest of the group, but he was fine with that. Her introduction seemed a bit strange, and he wasn’t sure whether he liked it or not, but shrugged. It didn’t matter either way.

He took it upon himself to step in and answer her question, however. “Yeah, she’s the one alright, and we’ve just started the riddles, so no worries. Two and three done are known by the beautiful redhead,” he grinned, giving a small, but highly exaggerated flourish of a bow towards Fay, “and I think Alex is on the right track for the next one.” He unconsciously leaned an arm on the blonde’s shoulder, ignoring his paper and looking at hers instead.

“…I’m Renji, by the way. Ren works as well,” he added as somewhat of an afterthought. Of course, he already knew the answer to the first riddle. At least he thought he knew, and he was pretty sure he was right, as he was usually good at riddles and puzzle games.

"I suspect you are the Alex that is part of this group of names? I'm O-Ren. That's the letter 'O', a dash, then the word 'Ren'. How far have you gotten to solving these riddles so far?"

Alex was just about to answer the question from the girl that suddenly showed up, but she never got the chance to actually do so since Renji or Ren as he has said himself answered it for her. When thinking about it Alex realized that both of them could be called Ren, so in her head she named the girl Ren number zero and the guy Ren number one. Maybe it would made a bit more sense if she had just called Renji number one and the girl number two since she met her second but just the fact that the girl had said that her name was spelled with the letter "O" made Alex want to call her Ren number zero. Because an O looks like a zero if you want it too.

But if the girl had popped up from nowhere you could say that the arm had surely done that as well. Alex hadn't expected someone to lean onto her suddenly and to say that she was startled was probably an understatement since she tensed up as fast as it happened, looking up at Ren number one. It was not that Alex had any problem in being touched, Alex actually enjoyed it most of the time. She just didn't like it when people approached from nowhere and did things like that.

But just as soon as she had tensed up she relaxed, it was not like he had felt her up like someone else had done earlier. Thinking about it made her glare towards the person responsible for that, Aki. But who was Alex to blame him since she had plotted to assault girls herself. But perhaps not the way he had done it. Ren number zero was second after Lynda on the list of girls Alex wanted to hook up with some way or another before the summer was over. Simply because she was interesting and Alex wanted to see what reaction that would cause. Yes, Alex was aware of the fact that both of them was most likely not into girls but Alex didn't see that as a problem, at least not until they found interest in other guys because well then it was over.

"So you think I'm right? Yay!" While speaking up Alex looked up at Ren number one with a grin, she didn't have a problem with him so close anymore. She was actually starting to enjoy it quite a bit. She was starting to get into one of her more cuddly moods and if it wasn't for the fact that there was so many people around she would probably be even bolder than she was now. But hey, it was him that started it not Alex. "You saying that makes me feel all warm and bubbly on the inside. Thank you, it made me happy and I felt smart for once."

“Hello everyone, I am Fay. I am glad I have the pleasure of working with all of you. Also, I believe the answer to the second and third question on this piece of paper is an elevator and a tree respectfully,”
Alfred looked over at Fay, a red headed girl who seemed to have a figure of a woman rather than a teenager. The woman smiled at the group before pocketing her paper, his hand still out and nearly forgetting that he had offered animal crackers until he felt the weight of someone dipping into the box. A bit startled, Alfred stiffened his arm and looked over before quickly relaxing as he remembered he was the one who offered the treat to begin with.
"Thanks Al. Oh, and I agree with the elevator part."

Al couldn’t help but to give him a friendly smile as he became happy to be thanked. Such small and petty things normally don’t make a person happy, but Alfred was always happy to be thanked by anyone. Suddenly, a memory flashed within his head of William thanking him after a night. It suddenly made him feel sick as if he wanted to vomit up all of the bad things that had to with that man. He stumbled backwards before taking a few steps forward once more, dropping the box of cookies on the ground. The sudden urge to run until the only thing Al can think of was how much pain he was in filled his entire body. Alfred dropped to the ground, feigning a cleanup.

He squatted there for a few seconds as he slowly picked the cookies up and placed them in the box, his hands shaking as he did so. The panic soon left his body and Al bolted upright, looking directly ahead of the group with a flustered face.
"So if the second and the third question are supposed to be a tree and an elevator, where's the place they're supposed to be at? The first riddle describes the place, or so it says at least, I think? Maybe I have understood it all wrong, But since some of the riddles is described as an place, that must mean that there is only one or a few of those around the city, right? If it isn't like that it wouldn't have a description under it, wouldn't it? Or yeah... That's just my thought of it all I guess? I don't really know."

The sudden voice of Alex caused Alfred to jump a little as his body became hyperaware of its surroundings. To try and cover up his odd behavior, Al opened his mouth to agree with Alex but before he could even push air from his mouth out, a girl entered the group. She was a pretty one although not as bright and joyful seeming as Alex or Lynda.
"I suspect you are the Alex that is part of this group of names? I'm O-Ren. That's the letter 'O', a dash, then the word 'Ren'. How far have you gotten to solving these riddles so far?

Alfred concluded that O-Ren was all about business. He couldn’t help but to release another one of his sheepish grin as he lowered his arm back down to his side. Perhaps the task that they were given could be solved with the help of O-Ren as she seemed understanding of the riddles. Suddenly, Alfred was reminded of the riddles and task. He looked at the piece of paper that still resided in his hand, crumbled and bent. Alfred read them through, trying to solve and pick each one- they all sounded strangely familiar but he was unable to match them.

He looked back up at the group and gave another friendly but nervous grin when another boy entered the group and leaned against Alex. As soon as Alfred noticed it, he realized that some of the group members had casually began to touch each other and that fact alone did not make Al feel calmer.
“…I’m Renji, by the way. Ren works as well,”
While Renji looked to be a serious giant- especially compared to Alfred- he seemed pretty easy going although it didn’t make Alfred any less tense. He hid his discomfort with another welcoming smile, trying to make another attempt to regain his composure after Alex had finished displaying her affection of being correct.

“I am also going to agree with Renji and Alex. I think you are on the right path when you say it’s a place. Although I have to say, these riddles seem oddly familiar to me but I don’t remember where I heard them or their answers.” Alfred chuckled a little as he looked at the group, tapping his fingers on the crumbled paper. “I apologize for being of no help. I even dropped the crackers.” His chubby cheeks became a cherry red as he felt embarrassment when he repeated the small and petty act. “I do have to say that I am quite lucky to be in a group filled with intelligent and unique people though.” With that, Alfred smiled wide at them before taking a baby step back and holding his wrists behind his back, looking around for a trashcan to dispose of the dropped cookies.

Emmaleese Wyzers

❧ ❧ ❧❧ ❧ ❧

❧ ❧ ❧❧ ❧ ❧


She made her way towards the group, holding onto the instructions that were given to her in the beginning. Emmaleese was running a bit late to begin with so when she arrived on the grounds, the teacher had already begun to explain things. All she could do was sit and wait until the groups called each other together. The next thing she knew was that her original group was not a part of another, forming one entire group and people started to introduce themselves and attempt to solve the riddles.

When she arrived at the group Emily gave a welcoming smile and threw her hand in the air, saluting the group in a rather friendly matter. “Emmaleese Wyzer reporting for duty! Oh, but you guys can call me Emily.” She sat back on her heels and leaned forward, her red hair dripping over her shoulder as she looked at the group through her eyelashes. In the beginning, Emily was quite saddened with the discovery of private showers. She would have to postpone her peeping until she was able to figure out how else to do the little matter. It was to her much dismay as well since she was determined to take a look at it considering that within all of her years of peeping, it was something Emily was unable to see.

Despite her sorrows, Emily decided that she would not allow that to draw herself back as each cabin did have their own personal showers which only made it easier to compare her lady bits to her unsuspecting roommate. Rather, she was in a much peppier mood now versus her mood in the beginning; she was convinced that no one remembered her quiet introduction in the beginning as the discovery of private showers had gotten her down in the dumps. “I do apologize for the late entry. I was daydreaming about a predicament and how to solve it. I would’ve been here sooner but the daydream turned into an idea I ended up having and the next thing I know, you guys are already assembled.” Emily knocked her own head with her knuckle to display its emptiness and the sincerity of her apology.

Everything Lynda heard was starting to turn into a blur. She was focusing on the sheet of paper in her hand trying to figure out these riddles. Her eyes scanned the page over and over again. And again. And again. By this point, she was concentrating hard enough that she couldn't even hear anything else anymore. Why was this so hard to figure out for her? She heard people talking about themselves or riddles around her, but she couldn't hear it if she wanted to. She was in too deep with her battle with the riddles.

Lynda's breathing became a bit shallow as her frustration and impatience grew with each passing second, each word she looked over. It looked like a jumbled mess of a puzzle she couldn't solve. She bit her lip and her hands trembled slightly.

No... it was happening. Not here... not in front of everyone. Her fear of failure could be felt deep inside of her chest, making it harder to breathe.

"Calm down Lynda... it's just riddles. Riddles. Relax... reeeelax." She tried calming herself. Nothing was working.

How embarrassing. Why did being raised in a failure free household have to cause side effects like this? What if someone noticed her freaking out over some riddles? She wouldn't be able to live that down. Fay already had a pretty good idea about some of the answers, and everyone else was getting closer to finding them. There she was, standing there, frozen, completely subdued by a sheet of paper with riddles on it.

"D-Damn it... someone's gonna notice..."

Alfred started saying something, but she only tuned into the last part.

“I do have to say that I am quite lucky to be in a group filled with intelligent and unique people though.”

Lynda couldn't help but smile. She felt really flattered, even if he wasn't directly talking to her. She couldn't let this get her down; something as small as a few riddles. She felt her spirit rekindle as she slowly started to take in her surroundings again.

She wouldn't fail at this task, even if she had to play team cheerleader.

Politely excusing herself from the arm wrapped around her, she noticed another person joined them.

“Emmaleese Wyzer reporting for duty! Oh, but you guys can call me Emily. I do apologize for the late entry. I was daydreaming about a predicament and how to solve it. I would’ve been here sooner but the daydream turned into an idea I ended up having and the next thing I know, you guys are already assembled.”


It'll be easy to tell this girl apart from the others; her hair is as red and noticeable as Fay's and she was pretty... top heavy. Lynda was glad hers weren't so big, because they would just get in the way when she fought.

Mustering up a smile, she stepped over and extended her hand out to her.

Hey Emily! Name's Lynda, and welcome to our little Riddle Detective group. We were just figuring some of them out."

~Renji~

It was pretty easy to feel Alex tense as he leaned on the shoulder, but she relaxed just as quickly. Renji thought it was a strange reaction, but thought maybe he’d startled her, which made him smile as he glanced over the riddles on the page.

Yeah. Most of these seem pretty simple. I wonder how many they’ll figure out if I keep quiet..?

As Alex started to speak up again, he shifted his eyes from the paper down at her to see her grinning up at him. He automatically gave a small grin back, nodding in reply to her asking if he really thinks she’s right. It was a pleasant surprise to find that she seemed perfectly comfortable with him being this close to her upon their first meeting. His grin became full fledged and he almost couldn’t keep a laugh from escaping him at her next words. She was giving him completely unexpected responses, which made him even more curious about and interested in the blond girl. He wondered where her lines where that shouldn’t be crossed as well as what types of things annoyed her. More questions came to mind, but he figured it’d just be an entertaining experience to try and figure her out.

Again, he was cut off as he was about to say something to her, and the thought came to mind that conversation must go pretty quickly with all the people here. The guy with the crackers, Alfred, mentioned that he agreed with the two of them, proceeding to say that even though the riddles sounded familiar to him, he couldn’t recall the answers. Renji sighed, thinking that it felt like they were going from an introduction party to a let’s-all-agree-and-get-along party. Wasn’t everyone here a high schooler? So why did this whole dialogue make him feel like he was in the middle of a gathering at an elementary school? Not that it mattered. People were people, after all, and they all seemed pretty interesting in their own ways.

He offered Alfred a smile, “Don’t mind it,” he said to the guy’s apology. He didn't think the guy seemed too comfortable around them, but he appeared to be trying at least. Renji thought he seemed like he’d be almost too easy to mess with in the future, and was working out ways in his mind of how he could test Alfred’s social limits. He almost felt bad about it, with how Alfred expressed how he felt he was lucky to be on a team with all of them. Almost, but not quite. It was obvious to anyone that everyone here was unique, but Renji wasn’t sure he could agree that everyone here was intelligent, not that he would voice that opinion at the moment.

“Now-“

Once more he was interrupted, which did make him feel a little bit annoyed. This time it was by a girl with a friendly look about her. Also worth noting was her attractive features in both face and figure, though one would almost immediately be drawn to the girl’s bust. Emily was her name; a somewhat common name, but one that still held a nice feel to it. He gave up on trying to say something for a moment as he moved from leaning on Alex’s shoulder (giving her hair an unconscious ruffle-another habbit) to resting both his arms behind his head in a somewhat bored fashion, noting with a smile that the beautiful and interesting Lynda calmly moved the nameless guy’s arm off of her. Maybe she would be a little more difficult to get close to.

Lynda proceeded to welcome Emily to their group which she’d labeled as the “Riddle Detectives.” Yeah. He definitely thought being with these guys would be interesting. Taking his chance at the small moment of silence that would follow Lynda’s welcome, Renji said in a lazily pleasant voice, “And while we figure them out, why don’t we go ahead and take a picture of the ones we already know?”

“Sir, we’re approaching the site.”

Daisuke casually opened an eye, glancing out the window. He noticed a couple buildings before the large campsite was unveiled. He sat up sighing, slightly regretting that his nap was now over. He looked down at the letter on the seat that had been marked for a few days earlier. The outside of the letter was tainted and littered with several postmarks and stamps like a greeting card that had come from far away. If they hadn’t been on that trip to Istanbul, Daisuke would’ve been here on time. Then again, it wasn’t like he was ecstatic to be there.

He opened the additional paper that was attached to the letter and read over the rules and camp information again. It seemed easy enough. Daisuke shrugged and stuffed the letter in his pocket of his jeans for future reference. He then glanced at his watch and pulled on a thin jacket. In any minute he’d be back outside in the sun, surrounded by people. He hoped he could just blend in and not draw much attention to himself.

When the car stopped, the driver and Daisuke got out and met at the trunk. Jason, the driver, pulled the trunk open and grabbed the duffle bag. Instead of letting him carry them for him, Daisuke put the backpack on and tossed the duffle bag over his shoulder. “Ah come on Jason. You know I like to carry my own stuff. You’re no servant.” Since Daisuke had been adopted, he wouldn’t let the help at the house do for him things he could do himself. He just didn’t like it. The workers all loved him though, and they’d try to clean his room while he was gone.

Jason smiled. “I know sir.” Daisuke smiled, extending his hand, and Jason shook it happily. “Keep yourself healthy and do well, Daisuke.” Daisuke nodded and turned to the camp. It was close to lunchtime so people were walking toward, what he guessed, was the cafeteria. Food sounded pretty good right about now, but he knew he needed to put his things away first. He strolled to the board and found the cabin assignments. He found his name next to Room 3 along with another name, Renji. So he’d have a roommate? Fun.

Daisuke looked around and saw a guy walk out of Cabin three, an interesting looing fella. His hair was orange and he had piercings and a tattoo on his face. Well at least he looked chill enough. The young man walked towards the cafeteria, and Daisuke walked to the cabin. He tossed his things next to his bed, slightly entertaining the thought of possibly getting another nap in, but his stomach growled loudly to let him know that now was the time for food. Grabbing two granola bars out his backpack and stuffing them in his pockets along with that letter, his wallet, and phone, Daisuke left the cabin and strolled to the cafeteria with his arms folded behind his head.

After getting some food from the cafeteria in his stomach, Daisuke followed the crowd to the bulletin board. He overheard that there was some sort of activity about to take place, so Daisuke took it upon himself to go ahead and just wait for the teacher with all the others. He hung back and read over the riddles on the sheet of paper he’d gotten. So this activity was some sort of teamwork exercise. He shrugged and looked at the list again.

What has branches and leaves, but no bark?

Daisuke chuckled to himself. He’d heard this one years ago when he was little. He loved riddles, because they were short simple ways to test your ability to think. So the answer to the first was library. Then stairs. Then a tree. This was really easy. If this is what this place was going to be like, Daisuke would be out of here in no time with plenty of time to sleep.

As the groups gathered, he noticed that two groups had decided to band together and were putting in their two cents. He saw the guy that was supposed to be his roommate next to a blonde girl with a seriously unique look. Figuring he could still hang back, Daisuke stepped up behind both of them and listened to the exchanges. The people seemed nice enough, and they hadn’t figured out the first riddle yet. His input might be useful.

”The first one is library, the second is probably stairs, and I think you’re right with tree being the third one. And my name’s Daisuke by the way. Looking forward to working with ya.” A slight smile accompanied his comment.

As Ren number one moved away from her shoulder's Alex folded her arms quietly listening to what the other's said. She didn't feel like she had to jump in and say something just to get their attention. Sure, Alex loved attention at sometimes but other's she preferred to stick to the background. This was such a time. Mostly because of her huge disappointment when the physical touching stopped. Her cuddly mood had been awaken and that craving was not nearly satisfied by a couple of minutes of an arm leaning on her shoulder, perhaps if it had stayed there longer she would been happy. Now she just preyed for someone that seemed available to receive it.

It was not like she cared that much for the riddles, the other's conversation about it was not exiting at all and since Alex knew she couldn't help them with those it bored her even more. Her head was already tired from trying to think something out, even if she had just thought a little tiny bit. Read what the paper had said and told the other's out loud. Sure she had gotten praised for it and she had enjoyed being praised for it, but it was not nearly as much effort as the other ones had put into it.

As she stood and watched the other's eyeing them up and down she noticed that yet another one had approached them. Hanging around in the background, she followed him with her gaze for as long as she could since he had placed herself behind her and not wanting to be too obvious that she was studying him she let it go and continued to watch those before her instead. The reason for her to stare so much was because she couldn't remember seeing his face before, sure there were a lot of people here and many of them seemed to be new, popping up from nowhere. She was still trying to figure out if she had seen him before or not when he spoke up.

”The first one is library, the second is probably stairs, and I think you’re right with tree being the third one. And my name’s Daisuke by the way. Looking forward to working with ya.”

Since he voiced his thoughts Alex took the opportunity to turn around and continue to watch him, creeping closer and leaning forward grinning, "Wow, you've already figured out the first one by yourself? That's great! I would never have understood it by myself." As she spoke she continued to creep closer, mostly because she saw her chance on getting closer to someone because the other ones in their group didn't seem that susceptible, mostly because they were women and Alex didn't feel like scaring them away from her. Then there were guys that Alex didn't feel like getting closer to since Ren number one retreated.

When she was close enough she hugged his arm, still grinning, before starting to drag him with her towards the exit of the camp grounds, "Alright then, let's head towards the library and take those photos!" It was not like she clings onto him, hugging his arm closely, so he could pull away if he wanted. She just took the opportunity to grab hold of someone without looking too suspicious.

Renji blinked as yet another guy appeared, and felt a little annoyed that the dude, apparently called Daisuke had given away the answers to the first few so soon. Ren had hoped to watch the group labor over them for a while before revealing the answers himself. To top things off, Alex almost immediately clung to the guy and pulled him towards the exit. Renji had finally gotten a word in, and with Daisuke's appearance it was as though he hadn't said anything at all... Maybe he should have given them the answers right off the bat instead of wanting to wait and play with them? Eh, who cares? He was more curious now, though, about both Alex and the new Daisuke.

Wait... Daisuke? He recognized the name for some reason. Had he forgotten something? He ended up shrugging it off, not seeing it as important for the time being. The guy seemed cool enough, someone Renji thought he could comfortably be around. At the same time he had a hunch it wouldn't be easy to mess with him. Something about Daisuke's easygoing attitude reminded Renji of himself, so maybe that was it. Either way, the guy interested him, so he'd keep an eye on him.

Alex he was already interested in, and with how she'd relaxed when he placed his arm around her shoulder a moment ago, her quick change to the newer guy was a little disappointing. It wasn't super obvious or anything, and maybe he was only imagining things, but still. He'd planned on seeing how close she'd let him get while they went on this little scavenger hunt. Maybe he'd pulled away too quickly in his moment of impatience? He sighed, giving a shrug before folding his arms behind his head and giving a slight but pleasant smile to the rest of the group.

"Well. If we don't wanna be left behind I guess we should follow," he said in a somewhat bored tone. He, in fact, did feel a bit bored now, the main part of his fun ruined as they now seemed to have someone besides himself that was good at riddles. He was debating on whether or not to join in the hunt or just watch, but now he his earlier interest in the little game was gone and it was just another stupid assignment again. He looked over Lynda, Emily, Al, and the rest of his teammates. At least the people were still interesting. He opted to try walking closer to one of the three named, as Emily and Lynda seemed more interesting in an outgoing sense, and as Al seemed to be more interesting in a timid but pleasant sense. Still, he kept an eye on the two in front of them.

Alfred James

♨♨♨♨♨♨

The juice he had was approximately two-hundred and thirty calories and if he equated the amount of cookies he had, it would leave him at about three-hundred and sixty calories with forty-one grams of carbohydrates. He wasn’t exactly sure how much protein he had today but it didn’t matter as protein helped build muscles and muscles were merely bulky padding to him. Alfred’s hand went up to his chin as he began to ponder on the amount of exercise that would set him at the even score of zero, completely oblivious to the group around him.

Walking with them would probably burn about four-hundred or so calories depending on how fast they walked and for how long on what type of ground. If it were a hilly one, then he could easily add a hundred calories to that equation however, if it were flat, Alfred would only be able to leave it at four-hundred. The amount of carbohydrates he’d burn would also depend on such factors. If he could get down to an even zero, then Alfred would be able to subtract whatever calories burned from that zero and be in the negatives which implied that he would have officially burned more than he put into his body.
“And while we figure them out, why don’t we go ahead and take a picture of the ones we already know?”

Alfred’s head shot straight up, completely shaking him from his thoughts and returning him to the reality he was in. He briefly noted that another girl had joined their group and that they were beginning to become restless, wishing to start their little journey of finding the answers to the riddles. He switched his footing lightly, clasping his hands behind his back to reveal a stance many girls take. Al merely watched as the group continued to converse, waiting to start with a similar face that matched Renji’s- a bit bored and had the wish to move one.

His calm movements were suddenly pinned as the voice of another man slightly startled him, causing Alfred to quickly spin around to meet the eyes of a black haired man who lingered in the background with an intelligent yet somewhat bored smile. Alfred could feel himself growing slightly uncomfortable but it quickly ceased as Alex walked past him, going on about how smart the man was, quickly moving on to starting the mission. The group walked ahead of Alfred as he tried to calm his shaky hands that he gained from the sudden startle the newcomer, Daisuke, gave him.

Alfred shook his head lightly as he began to walk, thinking that he should improve on his people skills internally.

Hey Emily! Name's Lynda, and welcome to our little Riddle Detective group. We were just figuring some of them out." The pleasant brunette had welcomed her with such friendliness that Emily couldn’t help but smile widely at the woman, putting her thumbs up in an approving way to respond to the girl’s words.
“And while we figure them out, why don’t we go ahead and take a picture of the ones we already know?” Emily turned towards the man who was now resting his hands behind his head, a bored look spreading across his face.

She stared at him for a long while and as the sudden thought of something dirty crossed her mind, Emily’s face flushed bright red and she spun on her heels with a snicker. Her slender hands touched her mouth as she began to silently speak to herself and to physically shoo away her own thoughts only to realize that another one had joined their group.
”The first one is library, the second is probably stairs, and I think you’re right with tree being the third one. And my name’s Daisuke by the way. Looking forward to working with ya.”

Emily noted him before watching Alex as she made her way towards him, approaching him in a friendly manner. She couldn’t help but to give the two a small smile as she thought the kindness within this group was a bit too high for them to be thugs. However, Emily soon noted after this thought that not all of them were thugs more or less as them being just troubled. Taking herself for example, Emily crossed her arms underneath her chest and nodded, agreeing to her thoughts of being sent here because of her perverted tendencies. "Well. If we don't wanna be left behind I guess we should follow,"

Renji sounded unbelievably bored- which in a way, Emily couldn’t blame him. However she deemed him a bit rude for not even trying to hold it from his voice. Nonetheless she began to follow the group, a small thought popping into her mind and voicing out through her lips. “Hey guys,” She started, clasping her hands behind her back as she sped up a little to try and keep up with them. “Why don’t we just google the answers instead of trying to figure them all out? Doesn’t it seem like a hassle doing all of that work when we can just use our phones?”

Tatsuo, who had tuned out of the conversation and had been looking over in the direction of the teacher, suddenly looked back at Lynda as she pushed his arm off of her shoulders. Smiling, Tatsuo shrugged and noticed a few more people had joined the group. As his eyes stopped on the other guys in the group a strange expression crossed his face, wondering what Kat would think of them, and he made note to not let Kat meet the newest, black-haired addition to their group if she ever visited.

Finally listening to the conversation Tatsuo realized their group was moving on to... somewhere. Walking over to one of the other new members of their group Tatsuo tuned into what the red head was saying. “Why don’t we just google the answers instead of trying to figure them all out? Doesn’t it seem like a hassle doing all of that work when we can just use our phones?” Reaching his arm around the new girl as he fell into step beside her Tatsuo shot her a lazy smile. "What a great idea. Anyone have a phone with access to Google?" As he spoke he looked over their group and noticed a few people had disappeared and frowned slightly before shrugging and looking over to the red head and then the guy with black hair, trying to recall their names.

"Wow, you've already figured out the first one by yourself? That's great! I would never have understood it by myself."

Wow. He’d only been there for a few moments, and someone was already complimenting him. He smiled at her noting that she was getting closer and closer to him by the second. It was slightly already expected seeing that, by the looks of it, she enjoyed being close to people. Despite this observation, it was still a bit unexpected when she took hold of his arm. It was even more sudden when she started dragging him away.

Daisuke almost protested being dragged off, but he didn’t even have time as the girl whisked him off. The unexpected pulling almost tipped him over, but he swiftly regained his balance and strode beside her, his arm still in her clutches. She certainly was stronger than she looked, but Daisuke only found that to be another rather interesting aspect of her. Thus, instead of removing his arm, he let her keep it, bending it in an almost escort-like fashion.

Looking behind him, he managed to catch what looked like a slightly annoyed expression from Renji that was quickly replaced with boredom. Daisuke figured he’d accidentally robbed Renji of his current buddy, but then again it was really the girl that did the robbing…wait…did he even know her name. Not that he thought about it, he didn’t.

“Why don’t we just google the answers instead of trying to figure them all out? Doesn’t it seem like a hassle doing all of that work when we can just use our phones?”

"What a great idea. Anyone have a phone with access to Google?"

That was a pretty good suggestion. That way time wouldn’t be wasted with letting the others try to answer the riddles while he held his tongue. That also meant more time to nap. He looked back towards the smiling blonde that still hung onto his arm. She seemed to be a nice girl and it seemed he’d made a good call when he first saw her.

”Well you certainly are quite the woman.” Daisuke smiled down at her laughing lightly, pulling his phone from his pocket. ”So what do you call yourself?” He could definitely see himself becoming friends with this one.

Kojou had quickly bailed after reaching the cafeteria...even if he was hungry he didn't have an appetite for what slop they were serving. Instead he had settled for simply napping back in his cabin, but recently some enhanced noise woke him up. Rather hostile, the belligerent teen stormed back out into the open and hunted for a familiar face. Noticing the noise was centered around the board, he simply shoved his way through to read the riddles.

Riddle 1: if there were a library he'd go there and punch (question) a kid there who probably knew until they said it.
Riddle 2:...see victim one again.
Riddle 3: at this point Kojou's eyes flashed, numbers were something he knew and the first thing that came to mind... a mailbox.
Riddle 4:board? Kojou didn't play boardgames, they were boring...find a chess geek or something, and repeat questioning.
Riddle 5: As someone who'd been arrested before Kojou could only think of a cop car.
Riddle 6: definitely sounds like a clock...at least it reminded him of the big one at home.
Riddle7: Even Kojou saw that they were talking about the letter e.
Riddle 8:...ask victim two, or find a drama lover...sounds like their thing
Riddle 9:Kojou burst out laughing at this one, it was his uncle's favorite line for intimidation - a coffin.

From there the bleached haired youth simply turned from the board and began simply used his large voice to do the rest with a shout.

"OI ALEX!!! LYNDA!! HELL FAY AND THE HELL PATCHY CALLS HIMSELF!!! WHAT TEAM AM I ON?!!!" Kojou exhausted the number of people he'd remembered thus far.

”Well you certainly are quite the woman. So what do you call yourself?”

At first Alex was surprised by the sudden remark, somewhat embarrassed as well. She wasn’t sure if it was a compliment or a taunt because she had been rather pushy, which made her feel a bit anxious for a short moment. But those slightly darker thoughts was quickly wiped away as she saw him smiling down at her, smiling back at him. She took his smile as a positive thing, that is was a compliment. She was just about to answer his question when a familiar voice sounded, more like shouted, over the campsite.

"OI ALEX!!! LYNDA!! HELL FAY AND THE HELL PATCHY CALLS HIMSELF!!! WHAT TEAM AM I ON?!!!"

Looking back at Kojou, which apparently hadn’t been listening to the introduction at all since he was screaming now made Alex grin. Sure, she was going to answer him as well if not anyone else beat her too it. But she felt like it was another question she should answer even before that.

Turning her head up towards Daisuke again she gave a slight nod towards the side which Kojou was at before answering, “You heard that right? Who didn’t? The first one he shouted for was me, I’m Alex, nice to meet you.” A small laughter slipped through her lips before she continued, “I guess I should had started with that, maybe. Nah, it’s overrated!” Laughing even more openly now she shook her head, she knew she was acting silly. But she felt like being that, to joke at the matter, hide her embarrassment that had been showing its face just moments earlier.

Without letting go of Daisuke’s arm she turned around towards Kojou and waved, “Yeah! You were on Lynda’s team but our groups decided to do it together instead so it’s just one big group date! We were heading towards the library to take the first pictures but I guess we are not anymore since everyone still is standing around doing… nothing? Or something?” Alex tilted her head and shrugged, wrinkling her forehead as well as she watched the others who had their noses down into their phones. She hadn’t heard the suggestion about searching the internet to find the answers so she had no idea what they were doing. “What are you guys doing? I want to get this date started, I caught a good looking one.” When saying it she pointed towards Daisuke grinning again. Yeah, she was just joking again. But someone should do it, everyone was so serious so the whole thing got boring. Alex was like that little mascot trying to make the whole thing more enjoyable and funny.

Kojou smiled when Alex gave her answer, and also turned toward the sounds. He made a note to keep tabs on Alex - she was useful...and popular. Kojou had to add the extra bit of that when he noticed the guy next to her while strutting towards the overall group. His grin adopted a quick Cheshire quality at Alex's use of the word date because it gave him something to play on.

" Date huh...have it your way then," Kojou cocked an eyebrow before speaking but used the pause to directly face everyone else.

"Well everyone since Alex and this dude are spoken for - I'd like to cordially ask you all out on a date...don't worry it'll be my treat." With a rare tone of genuine politeness and rather exaggerated show of a quick bow Kojou had reverted back to having fun.

" Don't worry I'll gentle enough on the first date - Lynda can answer that one well enough first hand. After all Alex, was I not gentle with her?" Kojou through a wink at both parties while casually referencing the little spar he'd done with Lynda previously. At this point, two individuals caught his attention: an orange haired guy, and one with red-looking hair with white streaks. Something...instinct maybe gave him the itching sensation he and them were cut from the same cloth. As a result he ending up giving them a direct look - a challenge while finishing.

" Of course if you think you're down for it I'm perfectly ready to get rough on the first date."

~Renji~

Renji glanced away from the two in front of him and stuffed his hands into his pockets as Tatsuo put his arm around Emily, complementing her on her phone idea. Well, it seemed one of the more interesting girls besides Alex was now preoccupied, not that he minded. He actually found it a tad entertaining seeing as the guy was attempting to do to Emily what he'd tried to do with Lynda only minutes before. Speaking of...

He looked over at the tough, brown haired girl, wondering if with her seemingly competitive nature she'd agree with the phone idea. Really, the riddles were too simple to have to look up, but he didn't care about the riddle game anymore. It was a simple waste of time. Even looking up the answers on their phone would be a waste of time, but he wasn't about to willingly participate in a reformation assignment that he was forced to be a part of. Now that they have both the phone idea and another brain (Daisuke), there was no need for him to get involved. He was just there to be there because he had to be. Plus the company was still interesting.

Then someone shouted, and Renji looked his way as names he recognized were mentioned and as Alex responded. The guy seemed interesting enough. There was both something about him that Ren liked and something he didn't, but he couldn't place a finger on either. When the guy was in front of them, Renji found that, yes, this one was very interesting as well. Different than the other guys he's run into so far. The way the guy eyed him with an obvious challenge, Renji raised an eyebrow before giving a small grin and shrugging. It wasn't difficult to hear the double meaning to his use of the word "date." So this guy was a fighter, and apparently enjoyed it and searched for it like an idiot... Well, at least the guy wasn't psychotic like Renji felt he himself sometimes was.

Accompanying the grin and shrug, Renji said, "Sorry, dude, but I don't swing that way." Renji could fight perfectly well. I mean, that's one of the reasons he was here. His switch clicked, he lost it, and he ended up sending a guy to the emergency room. He wasn't against fighting, he just didn't want his switch to flip or his calmness to break, especially this soon after the last incident. Mostly because it was worth more trouble than not. He didn't want that idiot teacher dude to give him an earful. It would be annoying.

He gave a quick nod in recognition as he stepped past the guy to continue following after Alex and Daisuke, who seemed to him to be getting along quite nicely. He sighed. A loss was a loss but this one grated at him a bit. Not that it mattered. He'd have other chances in the future, whether it be with Alex or someone else. They were all interesting people, after all. He suddenly didn't feel like messing with anyone, though. His mood was ruined more than he'd thought, but oh well. He was fine with solitude unless one of the others actually wanted to approach him. Too bad he couldn't have collapsed during this exercise instead of the "get-to-know-everyone-by-going-around-in-a-circle" thing. Then he wouldn't have to participate here and he'd have more information on all of them.





Rose Davis

Rose walked quietly, easily going unnoticed by her teammates as she silently wandered away from her group as she stared at the paper in her hands with a thoughtful look. She wasn't actually thinking about how to solve the riddles, though. She didn't have a chance at that, so why try when it wasn't important or worth the effort? She was actually zoned out in her own little world, rolling her tongue around the cherry sucker in her mouth as she was stuck in a daydream about a treasure hunt, where she was the main lead as a female version of Indiana Jones. If only this little scavenger hunt could be as exciting as the fantasy.

Caught in her own mind, she wasn't really paying attention as she walked, but was unconsciously following the feet in front of her. Unbeknownst to her, the feet she was currently following didn't belong to her teammates who were now going their own way. Her thoughts flowed from treasure hunt, to saving an imaginary love from a snake pit, to falling in love, to playing music with her imaginary love, to being back in her band, to landing a recording contract, to giving an epic live concert, to her mom's expression when she proves her wrong by making it big, to the clouds above her head that she was now looking up at and wondering how soft a pillow they would make. Thinking of pillows reminded her of her tiredness and caused her to yawn, closing her eyes, and in the process running into someone's back.

The bump and momentary pain as she stepped back and rubbed her nose jarred her back to reality. Blinking and at a loss, she realized she didn't recognize any of the people in front of her, not even the one she bumped into. She tilted her head in confusion before looking to one side and then the other. Her group was nowhere in sight. As she realized she'd wandered away from them and into a group of strangers, her face turned red with embarrassment. Wait... Which one had she run into? Feeling more embarrassed, she gave a slightly apologetic smiled, rubbing the back of her head as she said, "My bad." Maybe she'd just follow these guys. That would be the easiest route, after all.

Lynda was following along with the group as they began walking towards their first destination. Their conversations all turned into a blur when she heard someone suggest using their phones to find the answers. Her mind went blank for a second as the realization hit her. Their phones. Why didn't she think of that? Why was she struggling to solve these riddles when she could just use the power of the internet? She didn't want to facepalm in front of everyone, so she did it mentally instead.

She reached for her phone when Kojou yelled something from a distance. Alex told him that their two groups formed to make a bigger one, and he made his way over. Other things were happening around her as well, but it was a lot to keep track of. With new faces popping up left and right, everyone chipping in about the riddles, and all the conversation in general, keeping quiet seemed to be a good idea. Not like she could contribute well at the moment anyway.

Alex mentioned something about dates while clinging on to one of the new guys' arm. Lynda noticed that Alex hopped from person to person a lot. That wasn't a bad thing; it probably just meant that she was really friendly. She couldn't help but notice that she grabbed on to or let others touch her though. Was she one of those types? People who like contact with others? Or did she just genuinely like the guy she was holding? Whatever the case, she had to keep her guard up. If it was the former, she wouldn't put it past her to randomly glomp her, and living with her only increases those chances.

"Well everyone since Alex and this dude are spoken for - I'd like to cordially ask you all out on a date...don't worry it'll be my treat."

Huh? What was he talking about? Lynda looked in Kojou's direction.

"Don't worry I'll gentle enough on the first date - Lynda can answer that one well enough first hand. After all Alex, was I not gentle with her?"

Lynda understood now. He wasn't literally asking everyone on a date, he was just talking about fighting. Wait... gentle? Lynda clenched her fists and smirked. She knew he was holding back at the time, but gentle irked her slightly. She was sure that he wasn't mocking her, but it was rousing her fighting spirit at the same time. She did want a rematch eventually; a full on fight, but at a later time.

"Sorry, dude, but I don't swing that way."

She chuckled a bit. It was Renji wasn't it? She wanted to tell him that Kojou was taking about fighting, but she realized that he probably already knew. Something about him was interesting... was it his eyes? Was he like Kojou and her? Her adrenaline flared a bit at the thought. If Renji was a fighter too, she had to see what he was capable of eventually.

A small bump from behind decked her spirit to zero with the sudden collision. Turning her head, she saw a girl with light purple hair. She seemed embarrassed for it, and said "My bad."

Lynda in turn smiled at her with a "No problem!" before turning back. She was getting distracted. Inputting the password into her phone, she went on the internet, searching for the answers to these damned riddles.

"OI ALEX!!! LYNDA!! HELL FAY AND THE HELL PATCHY CALLS HIMSELF!!! WHAT TEAM AM I ON?!!!"

“You heard that right? Who didn’t? The first one he shouted for was me, I’m Alex, nice to meet you. I guess I should had started with that, maybe. Nah, it’s overrated!”

Daisuke’s head turned to see the young, white-haired man that’d just yelled out in their direction. So her name is Alex, huh? Well it’s nice to finally have a name to go with the face. Looking back to her laughing face Daisuke smiled widely.

“It’s great to meet you, too. It’s really nice to have a name to call you by, Alex.”

She certainly was fun. His thoughts quickly drifted to wondering why she was here as she turned and waved, continuing to talk to the guy that’d just yelled out to them.

”What are you guys doing? I want to get this date started, I caught a good looking one.”

A slight blush graced Daisuke’s cheeks at the remark, though he could tell she was joking. Yes, this whole group was fun. His thoughts shot back to the riddles they’d been assigned to figure out. Maybe, it’d be easier for him to just figure them out instead of typing in all those words. He pulled the sheet back out and looked at the riddle’s he hadn’t even bothered to glance at. Starting at the fourth one, he begun to reason aloud.

“What’s filled six days a week, but if you don’t own it, you can’t take a peek? Probably a mailbox…yep definitely a mailbox. What kind of men are always above board? Is that a play on words? Maybe on a board? Chessmen! What's black & white and full of fuzz? Full of fuzz? I’ll come back to that one… What won’t run long without winding? A river, obviously…”

These questions were easier that he thought they’d be. The next was the letter E, the next was heart, and the last was one of the Halloween riddles he heard every year: a coffin. How were they gonna find a coffin to take a picture of? Daisuke shook his head. Now that he’d figured most of them out, did he really want to just blurt out the answers? He’d seem a bit like a know-it-all if he did, but he did want to get a nap in. The thought of that bed waiting back in the cabin made him want to yawn. Daisuke turned his head back to the group and shouted over his shoulder.

“Somebody look up the one about the fuzz! That’s the main one I don’t have any clues on!”

Putting the paper back in his pocket and gently pulling his arm from Alex’s grasp, he took out his phone and put in all the answers he had so far. After he’d finished, he handed the phone to Alex, smiling slightly.

“So this is what I think we’re looking for so far. What do you think?”

Daisuke was pretty confident in most of the answers, but a second opinion would still be helpful, especially if there was something he’d missed, and when he was focused on getting sleep, that tended to happen a bit.

Alex listened to Kojou continue to spin around on the topic date that she had launched, his speech was extremely amusing. Alex found herself laughing slightly at it, get rough on the date huh. Sadly no one responded to that remark, those answers could had been even more amusing than the topic itself. So she took it in her own hands to point out what he had said, “I’m perfectly fine with being rough on the first date, but I already have a partner, so too bad for you!

As she listened to the other’s she noticed how the so called partner started to mumble to himself, she wasn’t sure about what though. She didn’t listen to carefully since she found the other’s conversation about dates and stuff more interesting. But soon he took his arm out of her grasp, which at first made her disappointed but she soon understood why since he handed her his phone after.

“So this is what I think we’re looking for so far. What do you think?”

Alex stared down at the phone and up at Daisukee afterwards, she found it rather strange that he wanted her to check his answer. Her. She figured that there were many others better suited people in the group that could check them, but she did it anyway. Flattered by the fact that he actually let her do it.

As she eyed the answers she had no clue about if it was right or not, but it all somehow made sense? So she guessed that they were right so she just looked up at him again and grinned, “Wow, you’re so smart! You’ve figured out so many of them!” When she looked down at them again something hit her, a small moment of brain activity, “Hey, if the last one is a coffin and it should be a place, don’t they mean the graveyard? It’s located near this place, right?”

-Renji-

After a moment of feeling annoyed at the situation, Renji sighed and shrugged to himself. Nothing he could do about it anyways, so why not just go with it and see what happens? Something interesting, probably.

"Wow, you're so smart! You've figured out so many of them!"

Renji couldn't help but give a small smile as his hands sunk deep into his pockets as he relaxed again. Does she always have this much personality, or is she just trying to flirt with him? Now that he was back to his normal numb calmness, something that's been bugging him came to the forefront of his mind again. He heard Alex say the answer to the last riddle and ask about the graveyard, though he doubted they would find a coffin above ground there, but who knew? Maybe they would. Either way, he saw an opening for interaction and took it. He caught up with them, and coming from behind, causally draped one arm across both of their shoulders so that he was still mostly behind them but somewhat between them. He didn't know as much about Daisuke since he was one of the last to appear, but something about the guy's name was still bothering him and he didn't know what. Not knowing irked him more than anything. He didn't recall ever knowing a Daisuke, so he must be missing something.

"Wohow! Thanks to you two we've pretty much solved all of the riddles and can get this game over with," he said, a fake but believable sound of aw ringing in his voice. He moved his arms behind his head as he spun to look back at the others, as he did noticing that a purple haired girl was silently following them. Was she part of their group as well? "Hey, guys! Seems like we've figured out all of the riddles. Since the teacher dude didn't say we all had to be in the pictures, do you want to split up or stick together to find them?" His new task was to figure out why the name 'Daisuke' seemed so familiar to him. He thought if he stuck around the guy it might come back to him, so if they split up he'd be sure to get in his group.

Rose Davis

Rose blinked, giving a small nod as one of the girls said "No problem!" and guessed that's the one she'd run into. Huh. As one guy called back to the group, she realized their group had already solved the riddles. Wait... Rose couldn't figure even one of them out if she tried, so why were they able to get all of them? She clicked her teeth on her sucker before rolling it to the other side of her mouth. After a moment she shrugged and looked back up at the clouds again. If they already knew the answers that just meant that she'd be able to get back to her cabin faster. She again thought about how soft a cloud pillow would be and stretched her arms above her head with a yawn. Clasping her hands behind her back, she started to hum before something the guy with hair that somehow reminded her of a cyndaquil's flame caught her attention, causing her to blink again.

Split up? But wait... If they split up I won't be able to get all of the pictures...

Without really thinking about it, she suddenly sat cross-legged on the ground, staring at it as she tried to think about the possible dilemma.

Who should I follow if they split up? They almost have enough group members to where each could get one photo... or do they? Wait... Wouldn't they go in at least groups of two so one can be in the picture to prove they were there? Wait... Didn't Cyndaquil say they didn't have to be in the pictures? Well, he said they didn't all have to be in the pictures, but wouldn't they need one group member in them as proof? Or do they just need a picture of the object... But then couldn't they just get the pictures off of the internet connection on their phones and present those instead? Um...

She kind of just intensely stared at the ground as her mind worked in circles until her thoughts finally became incoherent and her brain felt overloaded. Giving up on thinking, she went from her cross-legged position to lying on her back and staring at the sky blankly, arms spread out to either side. She laid there for a moment before remembering she was supposed to be following their group and hopped up to her feet again.

Ido Draskovich






Ido runs his hand up and through his hair, clearing the haze of passed sleep from his mind and yawning out the remaining creeks in his bone. It was a long and torturous ride, one that he hoped that would not need to be repeated anytime soon and the groaning stiffness in the back of his left knee was a turgid reminder of this. He takes a final look at the board in front of him before the sight of a figure approaching from one of the paths catches his eye. Ido sets his backpack down on one of his bags before turning to fully face the older looking gentleman. He had a certain look about him, that same "Now listen carefully" expression that almost all the teachers at school could be seen wearing almost all times of the day. He introduces himself as Karuko and Ido is quick to remember to shake his hand and greet him eagerly, a fact that his father worked hard to ingrain within him.

He nods as Karuko explains what is happening too him, only to look off in the direction that he points to see the small group hustling about. "Well.. at least something is happening"
However it appears that Ido's words slightly fall alone as Karuko takes his belongings and hefts them up to carry. Letting him know that he would be staying in one of the cabins, in room six to be more precise. He looks on as he can hear himself being sent in the direction of the group. The teacher urging him to get moving and catch up to them as so he can possibly participate in this event with them. Though Ido knew nothing of what was going on or what it was the group was doing, he takes one last look behind him to see Karuko moving off with his luggage in tow and takes a cursory check of his leg. Effectively rubbing the once sore thigh muscle before he continues walking towards the group.

Walking on; he brakes into a small jog only to catch up with the bulk of the group. As well to also chase the rest of the stale feeling from his body. Giving a small lighthearted wave towards them as he approaches.

Lynda's nerves calmed to a more comfortable level when the other members of their group figured out the riddles. She mentally sighed as some of the answers were more simple than she had thought. It was always that way when it came to things like riddles with her; always thinking too hard and making it more difficult then it really is.

Either way, she was glad that the hard part was over, and all they had to do was to take pictures of said answers. She overheard talk of heading to a graveyard near here to get the first picture, a coffin. A little creepy, but shouldn't be too much of a problem unless they had to dig one up or something. Come to think of it, aren't coffins always in the ground? How were they supposed to get a picture of one? Crash a funeral?

Deciding on just to deal with it when they got there, she overheard Tatsuo saying he didn't have his phone on him to take any pictures. She walked over and chirped up with a smirk.

"Don't worry, I have mine. I think group pictures count, so I'll just include you in mine."

She then turned back to the group and raised her voice a bit so everyone could hear her.

"Hey guys, I'm going to the graveyard near here to take that picture of a coffin! I don't know if were going together or splitting up, but follow me if you want."

With a new goal, Lynda proudly took the first step towards progress... then stopped dead in her tracks.

Just where was this graveyard? She didn't know the area at all.

"Umm... can someone tell me which way I'm going...?" Lynda sheepishly asked with her cheeks flushed in embarrassment. She was so ready to lead the charge, and didn't even know the right way to go. She inwardly sighed.

"I remember when I used to think before I did things..."

It was over, she had tried but it didn't work. All the efforts she needed to succeed, all the pressure on her that she needed to succeed. The expectations she wasn't able to reach. People disappearing, dropping out of the camp like flies. And now it was her turn. Perhaps it was her time to give up now, yeah she had already given up. When she skipped the class she knew she had given up already. It could had been so easy, just get over there and do the stupid assignment that the teacher wanted them to do. But she didn't. Instead she skipped it. Playing around. Doing nothing at all. At that moment she knew she had given up.

And now there was nothing more she could do. It was over. She stood there by the front gate to the camp with her bags packed and knew she had to head out once more. Knew that she had screwed up. That her future in this country was over. Now she had no reason to stay here anymore, or she couldn't. She had failed her classes, she had failed the camp. Now the only thing she could do was to return to her parents with her tail between her legs and ask them to let her follow them to wherever they wanted to go next. Where she could start anew.

She didn't know where it would be. But it wouldn't be like this. But she would miss this place, the people she had met here. The conversations she had with them, their way of thinking and acting. It was a funny bunch. But no one was there to wish her goodbye, why would they wish her goodbye? She was just someone they had met and spent some time with. They had laughed, argued, tried so hard together. But no one was there to tell her goodbye.

Did she think someone of them would be able to finish the camp and succeed? No. She thought that every one of them would one by one drop out. Leave the others behind, standing here where she stood now and look at the camp ground. Wondering where everyone was. Why no one came to give them one last hug goodbye. She knew that everyone would fail, even if they tried their hardest nothing would work because that was who they were. People that gave up to easily, that was how they ended up in here in the first place. And no one would be able to do anything about that.

They were quitters, every single one of them. Even if they tried it was in their DNA. She knew that now because she had fallen down the rabbit hole herself. Even if she had hoped she wouldn't but it was over, gone, nothing left she could do. At some point the only thing you could do was admit defeat and that was what she did now.

So with her hands outstretched into the air she waved goodbye to the camp and the people inside of it, grinning wildly to hide the sadness within, "Bye! I will not miss you guys! Or I will probably miss you! Alright I admit it, I will miss you guys soo much! You were awesome! So stay awesome!" In the end she didn't know what more she could say so she just go quiet and stood there for a while, waiting to see if someone would come and give her a hug now. But in the end she just shrugged and walked out through the gate.

Once outside she glanced back towards the campground, her earlier grin completely gone. What was left was nothing but a sad look in her eyes, she knew she would miss this place. But she walked away from it, not glancing behind her once more, no more longing looks for what once was. Now she could only focus on what was in front of her instead. Probably something that was just as fun but not nearly as troublesome.

The times she had there had been the shortest. She honestly didn't know what to do, and even despite everything she still had no one. She sighed to herself quietly holding her cat and her backpack walking towards the front gate. Everything seemed to just vanish and she closed her eyes trying her best not to cry about it all. She came here a fireball just waiting to get extinguished and pushed everyone away from her. She wished she hadn't made those mistakes and actually has someone she would consider to be a friend.

A small smile was on her face as she saw the girl leaving, she wished that she could be that happy about things, b it would never work out that way for her. She ran up and grabbed onto the girls shirt holding her there. "There isn't anymore? I was put here to make friends, but it was a horrible mistake. I didn't make any and I haven't gotten any better." She huffed out. looking at the sky not really knowing what to say. "I don't want to go home... They don't want me home either." Her final words slipped out and all she did was slip into the forest. She wouldn't be going home anytime soon. That would best thing she could have wanted, but everything ends up like this and there was no helping it despite what she could have ever wanted.

A dull "thud" echoed throughout the gym as Lynda sunk her fist into a punching bag over and over. Her luggage sat against the wall nearby and the gym was devoid of life except for her. The camp has been almost cleared out by now.

It had failed. Too many people disappeared or were kicked out for breaking the rules. This camp was everyone's last chance; a chance to turn their lives around, for a better future. But it failed, coming to a screeching halt, crashing and burning taking everyone on board with it. Including her.

Gritting her teeth, Lynda let another right connect with the bag, rocking on it's suspended chain as the force near tore it off completely. Her knuckles were going numb. It felt like she was here for hours, doing nothing but hitting this bag. At first, it was to give her something to do until her parents arrived to pick her up, then it turned into full blown venting. Wiping sweat from her brow, she clenched her fist and winded up. The last one she would ever get. All of her frustrations were stored inside her fist in an attempt to let out all of it.

As hard as she could, she threw her fist at a dizzying speed topped with a cry of anger and frustration from Lynda herself, slamming into the already well used bag. The echo easily surpassed the volume of the other punches, and the poor bag bent to the shape of her the impact before it flew backwards and crashed against the wall, snapping the chain that supported it.

For a moment, all that could be heard was Lynda's panting as she observed her accidental vandalism. For once she didn't care; Not about the rules, not about the property, and surely not about a camp that wasted her time and screwed her over along with the others.

Slinging her bag over her shoulder and grabbing her other one, she pushed out of the gym's front door and headed to the front gate, where her undoubtedly irate parents were waiting for her. It didn't matter if Lynda had done anything wrong herself; her parents would take this as a failure under her account, and punish her as such. Fun.

She near dragged her feet as the gate got closer. Where did it all go wrong? Fay, Kojou, everyone else... she had a feeling that this summer could've been better, maybe even great, but not now. Now everyone's summer, and possibly even their futures, were ruined. It wasn't fair. This camp was all they had left, and it couldn't even hold itself together.

"Damn it..." She cursed under her breath. She couldn't even say bye to her own roommate who had left before she had a chance to see her.

Arriving at the gate, she heard a voice, surprised that there was still anyone here. Her parents had just arrived and pulled up next to her, but that isn't where it came from.

"Bye! I will not miss you guys! Or I will probably miss you! Alright I admit it, I will miss you guys soo much! You were awesome! So stay awesome!"

"Alex?!" She's still here?"

There she was, walking away from the camp while that new girl who attacked that other one caught up to her, saying something that she was too far out of earshot to hear. She wanted to call out to them, finally say her goodbyes. Her father had other plans.

"Lynda Romaine! In the car! Now!"

Lynda's attention turned towards her parents car once more, as her father opened the backdoor and pointed inside. His face showed utter disappointment and frustration, her mother's almost the same. Nodding in obedience, she stepped inside as her father put her luggage in the trunk and damn near slammed it closed, causing her to wince at the sound. As he drove off, Lynda looked out the window one last time, and saw the camp getting smaller and smaller into the distance, Alex and the other girl looked no bigger than a dot before disappearing.

With a small sigh she sunk into her seat, preparing for the biggest lecture she had ever received from her parents when she got home.
