Mitsuki Kuroki {15}

Family Description
Parents
Atura Kuroki is a well respected business man who tends to travel around America and England more often than not while her mother, Chika is a famous photographer who in her 20's was a famous model. Her parents in her eyes are like strangers to Reiko, they know nothing about her and vice versa and she doesn't really care. Her parents are both very busy people with work and find that shoving money into their eldest' face means that they won't have to worry about her. Reiko's violence outside schools especially gangs challenging her doesn't seem to bother her parents as they care more about the youngest daughter and have high hopes for her. All they care about is her grades and pressure her to achieve the highest in her school.

Mitsuki
Reiko's only friend may be her sister who has always loved her regardless of how she behaves. Mitsuki is the complete opposite and as a social butterfly at her school with a bubbly personality she finds that her sister just needs a gentle push in the right direction.

Positive traits
Intelligent
Reiko has always been bright from a very young age and her thirst for knowledge only makes her want to learn more. Teachers would always tell her how much of a model student she would be without her fights because it seems like she never really tries hard to get good grades. Her parents pressured her as a child to remain top in not just her class but her whole school so learning has never been a problem. Studying however can be tedious and boring so perhaps most of her intelligence come naturally.

Determined
Regardless of her goals Reiko will always put in all her effort to achieve them except usually her determination is most likely aimed at her fighting like wushu or karate. Even in exams she will even push away her annoyance towards studying if that meant that she'd get the highest grade. It may just be her pride but with anything she does she likes to get good at it quickly which means practicing and being motivated.

Negative traits
Cold
It's in Reiko's nature to be cold and distant with those around her even her teachers. She finds human interaction somewhat annoying and prefers being alone and without any attachments. She isn't mean in nature but will avoid social situations that would require her to work with others and in simple terms she does not care about anyone other than her own well being. Even her peers have given up on her and her teachers so most of the time she does her work alone while those around her do it in teams.

Apathetic
Very much like her cold character emotions and feelings also seem annoying and much like a distraction to Reiko. She finds it hard to relate to others and empathy isn't her strong suit. This may be the reason why she's violent and isn't bothered by hurting people, those who mess with her and want a fight will usually get beaten by her because Reiko doesn't have any restrictions or think properly about the other individual. In her everyday life even faking emotions is tough and most of the time she finds pretending another chore but it doesn't exactly matter as everyone who knows her knows about her apathy.

Quiet
At first some may just think she's shy but then they find out about all her other negative traits and realize that Reiko likes to keep to herself as much as possible. If she didn't have a bad reputation she could probably go by without being noticed as she hardly ever makes a sound. Some people don't even know how she sounds like because talking is also very limited because seriously who will she have to talk to?

Bio
Reiko Kuroki was born without much of a welcome, her parents who wanted a boy were fairly disappointed and too busy to even be with her during her childhood so she lived alone in a big house with a nanny to care for her. Even at a young age she never showed any emotions which concerned her godfather who was the only one there for her. To try and avoid this he introduced Reiko to his dojo and taught her mixed martial as well as her personal favourite wushu.

Her younger sister Mitsuki was born three years later though yet again not a boy her parents took interest in bringing their youngest up this time in the hopes of getting a better daughter who'd raise the Kuroki family name. Though Reiko took on a more protective stance with her sibling she still was cold and quiet, enjoying her days alone rather than play outside with friends like her sister. Her parents never bothered with her as she never really caused any trouble was educational she was always ahead. Her intelligence and family name made teachers act overly kind for their own advantage and she was placed in a private boarding school very early on.

It was around the age of 9 when she started to become violent but of course within reason. Her personality attracted bullies who would try and get physical with her only to fail and get hurt themselves. Due to countless incidents she was finally kicked out the boarding school regardless of her perfect exam scores and IQ. It was when she entered high school that she kept in her bubble and limited human interaction as much as possible. Family life wasn't all that great either though seeing as most of the time her parents were out of the country she didn't really care.

Her sister Mitsuki on the other hand was a social butterfly, a complete opposite of herself and even though Reiko never showed any hint of jealousy she felt quite out of place when the family were together. Since being in the same high school people are strongly surprised by the differences between the two and a lot of the time both are compared harshly. While Reiko has the intelligence she has a terrible personality and violent streak to match but Mitsuki's personality is bright, attracting people to her though educationally she isn't that great.

People would call her the ice queen behind her back and a dozen rumors were flying about every week. Reiko continued getting into gang fights more because of the fact that she would get challenged quite frequently. Teachers couldn't say much because her parents paid a large sum of money as a donation towards the school every year and her grades were always at the top as well. She was silent yet dangerous and known for being a skilled fighter, especially with an old fashion sword.

Talents And Skills
Learning/memorizing - "I suppose my eidetic memory comes in handy.."
Knowledge is always 'zooming' around in her head and recalling information just comes easy to Reiko, though her memory is extremely above average with the help of having an eidetic memory and an IQ of 187.

Wushu {mixed martial arts} - "Fighting in general, karate is up there too."
Her godfather owns a dojo which is where she was taught from the mere age of 5 mixed martial arts but ended up finding wushu the most interesting.

Karuta - "It helps my logic and I get competitive so it's perfect for me."
Playing competitive karuta since the age of 7 means that Reiko has a lot of experience and frequently she has won many championships as well as take a the title of Queen for a few years. She's seen almost like a child prodigy with her excellent memory and fast reflexes that are perfect for the game.

Fears
|| Getting attatched to someone || Falling in love || Breaking down ||





Image
Reason For Getting There
It was mostly to do with the fact that her fighting got out of hand when a famous gang near the school challenged her. School property was destroyed and her parents couldn't bail her out any longer nor could the teachers handle it.

Likes
|| Wushu || Thick hard back cover books || Blood || Rain || Being alone || Quiet surroundings || Tea || Swords || Star gazing || Animals || Her godfather's dojo || Classical music || When her parents aren't home ||

Dislikes
|| Loud music || Noisy individuals || Being in crowds || Her parents || Empty threats || People underestimating her || Sunshine || Sweets || Pretending || Her teachers false kindness || Pointless studying || Working in teams || Animal abuse || Surprises ||

Brief Appearance Description
Reiko is a surprisingly a slender girl and even though she is very strong the muscles on her body is only slightly defined. Her dark blue almost black hair is always kept out and cut short as having long hair for her is tedious and gets in the way more often than not. Her eyes are bright blue which people find quite dull as she always looks so cold which matches her the poker face that she always wears. Her style is something Reiko has never given much thought about, often wearing anything she can find in her closet but she never cares much for bright colors. Her clothes are always quite monotone and dark with colors like black, dark blue, grey, white and brown with the occasional red. Standing out and looking fashionable has never been her goal as it requires a little too much effort and anyway she has no one truly to impress. The latest fashion or whatever is in the rage usually goes unnoticed by Reiko seeing as she likes to tune the world out. Most importantly she likes comfort, being able to move around without worrying is good seeing as she's active.

Was everything in the bag now? It should be, she had checked it many times. There's going to be a washing machine there right? Yeah it probably will, if there isn't any she can just go down to the laundry room here and wash it. Or change clothes completely. Why are she even thinking about this?! So stupid.

Alex closed the bag one more time and sighed, so freaking stupid. Once again she picked up the letter from the bed, reading the words to see if she had missed something. Nope, nothing. She had to go there. Why bother? Why don't she just listen to her parents and move after them instead, it would been so much easier. While shaking her head she picked up the bag, no that would just mean she had lost the fight. She could do this. If she just tried a little bit more... Okay, a lot more. Maybe she should make the bed before leaving no that would be stupid no one is going to see this. Cleaning is something she can do after this was over.

After a long and hard struggle with herself Alex finally left the apartment and locked it. She didn't want to do this, it felt stupid. Like she needed something like this. She just needed to put more effort into studying! So irritating. Idiot school. Every step down the stairs felt like a deathblow, it still felt unpleasant to be outside. Even if she knew that not that many had seen it, like why would they have done that? But she knew that it existed and if it existed some people can find it. She didn't want anyone to find it, she didn't want it to exist. That stupid retard! She should have hit him harder or more. Something. She should have done something.

Once down on the street, she pulled up the hood over her face. It felt better that way. Like she was a little secure. It wasn't that many people out this time of the day either, well not in this part of the town. If she just had a little more she would move somewhere else probably, but for the time being she was satisfied. After a while she passed the school and something in her made her feel like destroying a window or something. Maybe set the whole school on fire? Maybe she will do that later today, right now she must be there in time so she won't be "expelled". Stupid. Oh no... Is there going to be people from her school there to? No... She doesn’t want that! NO. Just NO. Wasn't summer breaks for relaxing or something like that? So relaxing this is going to be. Maybe she will break down mentally or something by this stress? That wouldn't surprise her.

Kicking one of the rocks in front of her Alex noticed the camp site, so this was it. Well it didn't look as bad as she had thought it would, it actually looked kind of nice? Well more like welcoming. This wasn't her kind of place, it felt a little primitive. It felt a little lame. Like she was back in kindergarten or something, so humiliating. Unwilling she went inside and went to the bulletin board in the middle to find out which cottage she was supposed to stay in. She followed the names with her finger until she found it, "Number five? Okay I guess." She looked at the other names, there was people from her school, or maybe not? Why would she bother to learn all the names! And she saw it, another name in number five. Was she supposed to live with a stranger?! Wasn't it enough that she had to live here? Are they trying to kill her or something? It's just going to be strange... What if that person is a complete lunatic? Maybe she will get killed in her sleep?! What does she get if she get killed?! Wait what? If she's dead she can't get any compensation.

After examining the map and finding number five she went there, irritated by the fact that she could find someone there. It was one long minute she just stood in front of the door and sighed, slowly she put her hand on the door handle and turned it. Be empty, please be empty! It was empty. Happy again she put her bag on the bed closest to the window. Just to be sure, maybe she needed to escape a murderer or she just wanted to leave for the night? Now she didn't need to climb over someone else. Maybe she should unpack or something? Nah, to boring.

After a quick look in the mirror she went outside again. When was that first lesson? Oh that's right it wasn't called "lesson" here it was a "time to socialize". Like she needed to learn that. Maybe she should look at that bulletin board again to see if the times were written there? It sounded like a good idea, probably better then running away which what was she were doing at the moment. She should stop doing things like that while still thinking about the options. After slowing down she started to walk towards the bulletin board again. Maybe it would be a good summer either way if she just relaxed a little and went with it.

The alarm ringing caused Reiko to wake up automatically, her right arm stretching sideways to stop the ringing from continuing. Perhaps she should just skip the whole ordeal, her parents did agree to bail her out by giving the school money but then again that would mean to actually see her parents which was never going to happen if she could help it. It was stupid that the school were making her go even though she was the one who helped them get statistically on a higher level in the league tables. Her eyes gazed at the time, starring at the clock for only a few seconds when she finally sat up and got out of bed. As someone who liked preparation Reiko had already packed her bag filled with the necessities that would enable her to survive. But then again she's love to bring her sword or wushu spear for practice but it was highly doubtful that they would be allowed.

As she staggered to the bathroom, she took a quick cold shower as she disliked the warmth and carried out on her morning routine. The house was quiet though that wasn't surprising, downstairs would probably be the workers preparing breakfast and as her parents were abroad for work like always she couldn't help but think that the food would go untouched. Except maybe her younger sister Mitsuki would be the one to eat everything served to her out of guilt. By this time Reiko was already dressed, her short hair slightly damp from the shower. Grabbing her bag she walked out of her room which she would oddly miss during the camp and made her way downstairs where the maids welcomed her. The girl only gave a slight nod as a reply as she continued to make her way to the dining room where not surprisingly her sister had taken her place and was already eating the large quantity of food too much for two people.

"Hey sis, today's the big day huh?" Mitsuki grinned at her sister while shovelling down some pancakes.

"It's a complete waste of time, I hardly doubt I'll change..." Reiko replied with a shrug. The amount of food slightly made her sick and without even a single bite she remained standing near the entrance of the dining room.

"I'm heading out now, don't throw a party when I'm gone and even if you do.."she was already on her way out, her back towards her sister "you're cleaning up the mess."

She heard her sister laugh and yell goodbye as she finally made her way to the front door. A helper opened the door to her like usual as she stepped out, clutching at her bag tightly. The driver who already knew the address drove her to the camp site and all the while Reiko felt somewhat annoyed at the tedious situation. It took quite some time seeing as the main house was located quite far away with its own plot of land.

At last she had reached the place, her driver already opening the car door even before she got the chance to do it herself. As always she remained calm and emotionless, dismissing the driver who smiled at her with those common pity eyes. Reiko took a deep breath in and strolled inside, already spotting a few people. Of course she had known that she would be sharing a room and the idea was not much of a surprise. Though she has never shared anything in her whole life, Reiko hardly cared because she knew that most would get tired of her easily and wouldn't even bother communicating with her.

Room 4, should be pretty easy to find, she thought as she pulled out the map that they were all given. It only took a matter of seconds to decipher the directions so she had arrived pretty quickly. Her curiosity was at its peak because she didn't find out who her roommate would be, all in all she was also curious why other individuals were forced to come here too although Reiko would never seem to be one who looked like she'd care.

Approaching her new room she pushed the door open to see that she was the first of the two to appear. Of course it wasn't anything like her actual room even though she wasn't expecting much the room seemed pretty decent. Dropping her bag onto the ground near the bed furthest to the window, Reiko simply pushed her bag under her bed to unpack later and made her way back outside to the main area where she saw a few people around the bulletin board.

Joe slowly approached the camp with his sister attached to his arm. "Please be careful J." Reina said softly as Joe stopped walking a couple of minutes away from the camp. Joe didn't want Reina to go to close to the camp and she had to make her own way back home, so he decided to say goodbye to her when they were getting close. "Yeah." Joe turned to face his sister and hugged her before continuing. "Don't worry about me. And look after mum while I am gone, okay?" Reina nodded her head and let out a small hum in reply as the two siblings finished hugging each other. With a smile Joe said his final words. "Don't get into trouble. See ya." He walked away slowly, fully aware of the irony of his statement and listening happily to Reina as she giggled.

It was not long before Joe was in sight of the camp gate. He didn't really have much of an opinion on his first glance. He noticed a few people already standing around, near some kind of bulletin board, so he assumed he should check there first for any information he needed. He timidly approached seeing some sheets of paper attached to the board behind the people. Once he stood before the people, he uttered. "Hi." He used this greeting to allow himself to push slightly past the short blonde so he could read the list of names. Joe scanned the page with great speed and located his name by the heading of cottage two. As he noticed another name by his a curious look came to his face. He was oddly not in objection to sharing a room with a stranger. After all, he had shared his room with his sister for several years and felt like he could use someone to get close to while he was here.

Joe moved his attention away from the bulletin board and looked over the people from a different view point, before quietly leaving to go to his cottage. He quickly opened the door to the room and to his surprise it was not locked at all. This didn't seem like a good idea knowing the nature of the camp but Joe ignored it. He looked out of the window opposite the door to see that is had a view of some trees behind the building. Not caring for the view he dropped his bag by the bed furthest away to allow his room mate to have the window bed. Joe lay back on the bed, not worried about going out to see the others as he was sure to have plenty of opportunity to do that. He did however keep an eye on the open door to make sure he could see if the others went somewhere.

Rez sighed. Once again. He wondered how often he sighed that day which just had begun for him two hours ago. Like every so often he woke up early, made himself a simple bread and coffee to go along with it and leaned on the opened window frame only to stare at the city's early scenery from high above. To be exact, from his apartment in the 17th floor. Actually the apartment that was meant for him was below on the 16th floor, but he kind of made things messy and as he did not see any sense for him to tidy up because he was going today anyways he left the mess like that and eventually slept in his sister's apartment. Not like she needed the space having her to be at her boyfriend's probably going at it everyday without their parents approval. Well whatever, did not seem his parents even cared if their daughter was pregnant though.

A bit irritated having to think of them, and not only that but having to accept that he was in a bit to go to some kind of weird camp, he carelessly threw the silverware he used into the sink for his household help to clean up later and took out a cigarette which he immediately lighted up. With displeasure he tried to draw in the smoke by inhaling and stared to the skies. A camp, huh. Perhaps it won't be a big deal, perhaps there will be some hot women there. Talking about women, those troublemakers were mostly the hottest ones, who did not give a damn about school because they knew better. With that, he settled his irritation down a bit. Mostly just trying to get it in his head that it won't be as terrible as he imagined. Hopefully.

Through what he brought along it was obvious that he suspected he'll be bored to death in there. He took both of his guitars with him, the electric and the classic, plus several iPods and hand phones scattered either in his pockets, jackets, or in the gym bag he carried with him. At least he had something he can pass his time with, and even when one of his gadgets gets confiscated, he'll have another one. Pretty easy logic, ain't it? He arrived at the camp site with a car. His step-sister's boyfriend being the driver and his step-sister being the annoying front-seat passenger or what she often referred to as 'co-driver' who from the beginning of the drive until the end tried to throw Rez many and many threats so that he won't ditch the camp. "If you get kicked out of school, who do you think gets the blame?!" She continuously said which Rez only answered with a dry yes while staring disinterested out of the car's window.

"Alright, little bro, listen. Don't go off and ditch this, understand? Think about our parents! At least you should finish school. Life is harder than you think!" With that she kissed Rez on the cheek and went off. Even if she was somehow trying to act like a good sister until the very end, Rez could see spitefulness displayed on her face. Well, she already went through such thing and got kicked out of school, now Rez had to go through the same but do it right. Somehow this wasn't really fair, yet Rez only brushed the thought off, took both of his guitars on the shoulder and his gym bag on his hand and a little bit listless he walked to where the crowd was. Arriving there he was actually surprised how many faces he could not recognize. Perhaps they ditched too much Rez never even had a chance meeting them? Although he was some sort of delinquent, he can’t deny that, and appeared to be only interested in women seeing his flirty individual, he is still counted to be one social butterfly who somehow succeeded to always have a chat with the most impossible people. That hobby kind of ended him up in the camp however, but not like he could change how his nature went.

The crowd was pretty nasty, honestly. Pushing, screaming, shouting, there was even little arguments here and there. Rez did not have a chance to glance to the board everyone was looking at and even if he tried and pushed, it won't do. Not with his precious guitars on the shoulder. Guess nothing can do, he had to wait, unfortunately. A sigh escaped his lips as he glanced around, checking for any teacher. Kind of assured that he seen none, he took out his cigarette and intended to light it up, but someone from the front carelessly bumped him to the back, where he kind of crashed backwards to someone at the back. "Sorry." He briefly said without even checking the person behind him as found back his balance but instead, his different coloured eyes were only meant for the guitars which he worriedly checked for any damage.

Noda woke up to the sound of his alarm going off. Despite being on vacation, he still had to wake up early to go to some sort of summer camp for remedial lessons or something like that; it was either attend or be expelled so there really wasn't much of a choice. With a yawn, he got up and went about his usual routine. The house was quiet as usual, aside from the sound of sizzling eggs that would soon be Noda's breakfast. Since he lived alone, Noda learned to do things for himself, be it laundry, cooking or buying groceries. He became quite adept at chores.

As he ate, he double-checked his belongings to ensure that he didn't forget anything. He also made sure to double check the location of the campgrounds to make sure that he knew which bus to take. Putting his dishes in the sink, he changed into more suitable attire and quickly brushed his hair to the side and tied the remainder in a little tail at the back of his head. Many people questioned him about why he presented himself in such a feminine way, but his only answer would be that he felt like it. He picked up his bags and left the apartment for the bus stop.

Halfway to the bus stop, Noda realized he almost forgot something. "Shit!" He muttered to himself as he made a mad dash back to his apartment complex. He let out a slight sigh as he picked up his forgotten item, his guitar, and slung it over his back. He glanced at the clock in his room and nearly screamed in frustration as he realized that the bus would arrive in less than 5 minutes. Sprinting, he managed to arrive just as the bus was about to leave. Paying his fare, he took a seat on the nearly empty bus and put in his ear buds that played music from his phone. It was much too early to be out and about, but the paper said he had to be at the site early.

He looked over the notice paper again. He was being sent to some camp for delinquents. Even if it is for remedial purposes, summer camp is summer camp. He was planning to enjoy himself as much as he could. To the best of his knowledge, no one from his school was told to come, so it would be full of new faces. Maybe I could mess around with some of them... He thought to himself with a grin.

After to about hour on the bus, Noda had arrived at the campgrounds. Putting his phone away, he began to leisurely skip towards the site with a smile on his face. It wasn't too bad. There was a bed to sleep in with a roof over his head, it was the bare necessities, exactly in his element. After a bit of wandering around, he realized that he had no idea where he was. He looked around, but couldn't see anyone. "Well... I'm at the site so if I walk around, I'll run into someone eventually, right?" He said, keeping his smile on his face.

After about half an hour of cluelessly walking around, he found a group of people gathered around what appeared to be some sort of bulletin board. Instinctively, he hid behind a building a peek around the corner. He took this time to size them up from afar. He couldn't help but feel a little intimidated since most, if not all, of them appeared to be much taller than him. Several of them were talking and arguing. Not being able to do much scouting, Noda figured he may as well approach them. Of course, to approach them normally was out of the question. He was going to see how many of them he could get to believe he was a girl before he broke the news to them. After a small snicker, he proceeded to skip off in the direction of the group, making sure he had his best smile on. This would be fun.

"Excuse me! This is the site for the summer camp right?"

"This isn't going to work... Your only wasting your time."


Being the morning bird that he is, he was dressed and reading a book in the kitchen while sitting on top of the kitchen counter. Though, his mother didn't like when he sat on the kitchen counter, she knew not to start an argument with Omar. Because, he would win. Rolling his eyes at the sound of movement, he knew that his parents were finally up and getting ready to drop Omar off at this camp. He didn't want to work on anything, he believed that all he was doing was being himself. Well, he didn't see that being himself was the problem. Shrugging his shoulders, he continued to read until his parents were ready to go.

"Honey are you-," His mother's sentence was interrupted by a firm,
"No..."

With that being said she sighed and went outside to warm up the car. "Son, I want to say this and I want you to listen," Damn, here it comes. Another one of fathers morning talks. Omar put his book down, and looked over towards where his father was standing. "If this doesn't work Omar you know where you are going? You have to finish this camp Omar, if not for me or your mother. Do it for yourself. Search deep inside yourself for the strength to finish this program. I want to see you graduate son. I want to see you live your life without the problems that you are facing inside that head of yours. I want you to take it seriously! No screwing around. Do you understand?"

Omar looked away, rolling his eyes in the process. "Omar!"
"Fine, fine. I'll try my best. Damn." He snatched the book and got off the kitchen counter.
"What did-," His father was making his way towards him, before being interrupted.
"Mothers warming the car up, let's go."

After that, they both knew that the conversation was over. They all got in the car and awaited for what seemed like a long drive to the camp. "Remember if you screw this up, it's over." He got it the first time. It didn't mean he'd actually listen. Who'd want to sit down with other people and, dare he say it. Communicate. He barely communicated with them and now they want him to talk to complete strangers? That was what pissed him off most of the time. Why did they care so damn much? It annoyed him quite a bit.

Getting out of the car when it finally stopped, he grabbed his bag out of the trunk and watched as his parents drove away. Turning around, he looked over at the people gathering around a bulletin board. "Great. Just fucking great. This isn't real right now." He rolled his eyes -being beyond annoyed- and began to walk away, he could communicate but decided not to. Nothing interested him at all, so he decided to sit along side a tree and enjoyed the little alone time he would get. "I don't want to be here." This was only for the summer, this was what he had to remind himself. "This will be over before I know it."

Reiko realized that while more people were arriving, the area around the board was becoming increasingly filled with activity which made her feel somewhat annoyed. The prospect of this camp didn't seem all that appealing at first but the thought of her staying here surrounded by bad enough people assuming they all had problems that the school couldn't allow any longer was beginning to feel tedious.

The girl stepped back in her attempt to get away from the crowd as she strongly disliked being in them. Scanning around the area she couldn't recognise any of the faces though it was highly doubtful that she would have in the first place. Rarely did she attend class but not because she was bunking, but because she found it boring. Reiko would most likely be on the roof if no one else was there or in the library and because her attendance made no difference to her outstanding marks the school couldn't really do much.

The smell of cigarettes brought her attention to a male with slivery-grey hair, her head tilted slightly for a better view. She thought about asking for one but decided against it after a moment's thought. Maybe I should go back to my room, the teacher isn't even here yet, she sighed quietly. Maybe this would be a perfect time to just get out before the teacher shows up, to be fair when she got the letter of attendance the school didn't have much hope for her actually accepting it but rather they expected a check from one of her parents to clear the incident away. Who knows perhaps all this was meant to be a plan to earn some money but it failed in the process.

There was too much noise for Reiko to handle and she wondered whether everyone here in reality wanted to be here. Would anyone even change? Absentmindedly she rubbed the tattoo on her wrist while she watched those around her. Finally she couldn't take it any longer and decided whether going back to her room would be the best idea. Though she had no clue on who her roommate was she didn't really care.

Her gaze rested upon a newcomer who had asked a question. Nodding ever so slightly Reiko finally spoke "It is."Did the female even hear her was besides the question.

Image It was sort of early morning and already people were showing up. It pleased Karuko in a way, because in a way, these students wanted to atleast try to better themselves, even if it was forced upon them. He wanted to help them in any way he could, even if they hated him in the end. It was worth it, if it only meant it helped them.

He couldn't help but chuckle the moment he saw students look for the teachers and didn't realized that he was one himself. This only pleased him, it had meant that he looked just as young as most of them did. But there was a little something that didn't please him, the sight of a little white cigarette. Of course he saw this, it was something he was looking for, one of many things.

"If you'll excuse me, gentlemen." Karuko's voice was soft and sweet. His smile was a little loving in some ways as he reached over to grab the cigarettes from behind Rezo. "I believe the signs say, no smoking." Pushing his way past and in between them he turned to face them head on, while smashing the cigarettes; he chuckled. "Please do follow the rules, trust me on this, you don't want to anger the Disciplinary teacher. I hear he has a very bad temper that doesn't end well with hugs and treats."

"Right so as that being said, if you'll handsome gentlemen would excuse me for just a moment." Karuko walked off before the two could have a chance of doing or saying anything. and just in those seconds Karuko pulled out his mini blow horn, letting it squeal very loudly to catch others attention.

"Good morning everyone. You all may call me Karu or Karuko. I am one of many teachers here. But you see, I will be the ONLY teacher that you'll ever meet. The others are hiding about amongst you. To make sure that you will not break rules and get away with it. If a teacher uncovers him/her self to you, that means you are expelled, it also means that your career life is over, no matter how rich you are or what business you must go into. We have spoken to those who some of you work with and your families for most of you. Trust me when I say, this is your last hope, so use it wisely."

He paused for a brief moment, rubbing the bandages on his head as he looked through a clipboard that he carried in his side pack. "Oh and the rules are signs boards all about this area, so you have no excuse to not know them, we even have them listed in every rooming bunk. When it comes to meals, they are at certain times, if you miss them, that is not my problem. You are allowed to have snacks in your room, but label them, if they are not labeled and someone takes them, we will not do a thing about it. Your stuff is your own responsibility, if you fight about it, you are gone." He looked through his clipboard again. "The Disciplinary Class will start at Noon Today. So be there on time, if any of you are late, you will be expelled. Apart from today, Everyday at 10am class will start and it will end at 5pm. Weekends are yours. The last and final rule is never leave campus, if you want anything come to me and I will order it for you." Putting the clipboard away he smiled softly. "Look I don't want you all to feel like this is hell, it's not, we give you at least 3 strikes before expelling you. So please, be careful. That's all, I'll go to your Room Bunks and check you all in, in about an hour. So settle in and chat around."

He put the microphone away and pointed at Rezo and Kojou, walking up to them. "I wont count this as your first strike out, so in the future please be more aware of your surroundings." He softly patted their arms.

Was he planning on getting mistaken for a girl? Yes. Was he mistaken for a girl? Yes. Was he expecting what happened? No.

Making an attempt to join some of the conversation was more or less a failure because either no one could hear his question over all the ruckus or he couldn't hear a reply for the same reason. With a dejected sigh he just took a few steps off to the side. With that plan seemingly a failure, there wasn't much he could do. Especially since they were all giants in comparison to himself, he wasn't able to see the bulletin board and find what room he was in. The idea of asking them to move was obsurd since no one could hear over each other.

Noda was about to just stand off to the side, play some guitar probably, while he waited for everyone to start to settle down when he suddenly felt something touch his cheek. He turned to side and was met with a very close-up face. It took a few seconds to register what had happened and in those few seconds the other person, another male, had grabbed his ass and said
"Hello, cutie~!" and was just as quickly gone. Noda felt his face contort into that of an obviously disturbed person. He though about following the other male and explaining that he was also a guy, but figured it be best to tell him at a different time, for the sake of both their prides.

Momentarily banishing his concerns, Noda heard a voice speak through a blow horn and instinctively turned towards it. The voice belonged to a male who was supposedly a teacher, and quite possibly the only one they'd see, so he claimed. He also claimed that some of the other teacher's are hiding amongst the group, which could cause some problems. After the teacher had finished speaking, it didn't seem like anyone was inclined to go anywhere, aside for a few who seemed to be off to their lodgings. There were still some other loitering about the bulletin board, so taking a peek at the list seemed near impossible with Noda's short height. With a sigh he put his bags down off to the side and took his acoustic guitar out of its case. Sitting on the ground, he began to absent-mindedly pluck at the strings. Still plucking the strings, he looked at the somewhat cloudy sky.

"Things could be worse I guess."

Fay

Fay had woken up hours ago to get ready and eat. Her bags were near her door while she lay in bed with an icepack over her eyes. She wanted to make sure her eyes did not look puffy from spending most of the night crying. I can’t believe I really have to go to some camp filled with delinquents because I missed a few months of school…besides that I am a prefect student. I never started any trouble. I even made up the work I missed. If I don’t go I will end up getting expelled and my grandparents threaten to make me move in with my parents if I don’t finish the camp. I hate them all, none of them care about or really love me.

As she heard a knock on the door she took the icepack off and placed it in the freezer of the small fridge in her room. She sat up and smooth out her clothes. She looked in the mirror to make sure her hair wasn't out of place. She ran her long fingers slowly through her hair to fix a strain that was out of place. Perfect, now time to pretend to be happy. She put a smiled on her face as she opened her bedroom door.

“Hello Grandmother,” she greeted in a sweet happy voice.

“Are you ready to go? Did you eat already?” her grandmother questioned. Fay ignored the look of "worry" on her face. Whenever she had left her room Fay pretended she never had stayed in her room for months and missed school.

“Yes, I will get my bags and meet you and grandfather downstairs,” Fay replied. Her grandmother simply nodded before leaving. Fay looked at herself in the mirror once more. She wore a white long sleeve button down dress shirt with black buttons, a black skirt that stopped two inches after the mid of her thigh, and plain black leather boots with no heel. Fay had two large suite cases, a large sports book bag, two large duffle bag, and a medium size suite case. She had to make two trips to the car before they could go. The car was silent as her grandparents drove her to the camp.

When she exited the car she glanced at some guy sitting near a tree. She gave him a friendly smile before she looked at the camp. People were already there. Fay grabbed some of her stuff before she headed to the bulletin board where the people were. Honestly, she paid the people there no mind for now. She actually stayed as far as possible from everyone while she looked at the board.

Why is my full name on there? Did my grandparents not inform the teacher about just putting my last name? Can no one do anything right? She took in a deep breath. Anyways I am in cottage number four…wait I have a roommate? Reiko Kuroki? Is she already here? Why do I have to have a roommate? Am I already not suffering enough?

Her expressionless eyes looked at the board once more before she headed off to her cottage. When she entered she froze, bags were on the floor near the furthest bed from the window. Her roommate was already here. Fay walked over to the other bed and placed her bags against it. She walked back out to get the rest of her things. With a quick wave bye to her grandparents she headed back to her cottage. She only glanced at the person who was playing a guitar on the ground. The music sounded nice. Fay placed the rest of her bags against the bed as she looked around the room. It’s just for the summer…I can do this. With that thought Fay decided to stay in her room as Fay didn't want to pretend to be happy again for a while more. She really did not want to be here or socialize with people. Fay had been fine being in her room talking to no one. It took a few minutes, but she stopped her thoughts as they made her mood worst and she began to unpack her clothes.

Lynda slipped her long sleeved shirt on before putting on and zipping up her jacket. Today was the day; the day where she had to go to some summer camp for troubled students. She scoffed as she tied her shoes. She wasn't troubled, she just liked to fight. Hell, when she was caught, it was during an organized event by the students. Sure, it was still fighting, and sure it was done by the students, but didn't a somewhat professional event count for anything? She bust her butt setting up that event, and as many as 32 students showed up to participate too. Things were going fine and there actually wasn't any injuries; it was just all for fun.

Still, she was nailed as the one responsible for the event, and now, this camp was her punishment. Great.

She packed her briefcase and slung her duffle bag over her shoulder and headed downstairs. She had already had breakfast, so all she needed was to find her-

As she rounded a corner, she bumped into her parents, standing with very stern expressions. Lynda stared back for a moment.

"Um..." She scratched the back of her head, trying to figure out what to say that won't upset her parents more.

"Well, i'm all packed up and had breakfast, so I'm ready to go now."

Her parents wordlessly walked outside and headed to the car. Lynda sighed as she walked out after them; her parents were so upset with her, they didn't even have anything to say. Normally, they would have chewed her out non stop, but after the day they found out about her "event", they signed her up, and barely said a word to her since.

Half the ride there was silent and uncomfortable. She had to say something.

"I'm sorry, okay? I'm really sorry. It's so hard to explain, but fighting gives me a rush I don't feel anywhere else. It was all for fun; I mean, no one even got hurt! No matter how much I apologize, you guys still stay pissed at me! What do you want from me?!"

She took a deep breath and tried to calm down, waiting on her parents' response.

"Lynda... you know what we expect of you." Her father started. It's bad enough that you were apart of that fighting event at school, but you organized it. That is unacceptable, and this camp will set you straight.

"Yeah... but-"

Her mother turned in her seat to face her, her eyes colder than usual. "We love you Lynda. You're our daughter. Until you finish this camp however, I can't find the will to completely forgive you. Prove to us that you mean it, because this is more serious than you think it is. Remember that as the summer goes on."

Lynda lowered her head in thought and a bit of anger. how can her parents be so unreasonably cold? Was it really that bad?

When she arrived at the camp, she said her goodbyes and watched her parents drive off. Turning to face the camp, it wasn't as bad as she thought it would of been for a disciplinary camp. Walking for a bit, she eventually found a big crowd near a bulletin board. She shrugged; it looked important enough to head for it.

As she neared the board, a man with light blue hair and a megaphone started addressing the crowd. She listened intently to everything he said; the last thing she wanted to do was be expelled and ruin her last chance. The whole hidden teacher thing could become a huge problem though. Se wasn't a trouble maker, she just liked to fight. There had to be some way to enjoy herself here without being expelled.

As she walked over to the board, all the people didn't look all that... delinquent-like to her. I guess trouble comes in all shapes and sizes. She even saw a guy grab some random girl's ass and keep moving. She thought it was his girlfriend, but he immediately went to a taller blond girl and was all over her. If he did that to her, she would uppercut him right in the jaw. How could anyone act so flirty from girl to girl like it was a sport? Didn't he have any shame?

Turning away from that scene, she walked over to the room listings and traced her finger along until she found her name.

"Room 3, huh...?" She mumbled. She also saw another name right above hers; her roommate? It was fine, as long as her roommate was cool. She headed for her room and opened the door. To her surprise, it looks like her roommate wasn't here yet. Strange, since she was a bit late. She placed her briefcase and duffle bag on the bed on the window side, deciding to unpack from now. First, she pulled out her violin and placed it on the night stand; last thing she wanted was to accidentally break it somehow.

She soon packed away her clothes, toiletries, and everything else. Now... for the final touch. She hung up a poster on her wall of two martial artists jumping in the air, both of them coming in for some kind of flying kick. She placed her hands on her hips and nodded her head. Now this felt more like home.

Putting the empty bags under her bed, she sat at the edge of her bed, and kicked swung her legs in thought of what to do. There was still some time before that class she had to go to, so she decided just to relax for now. Laying on her bed now, she just stared at the ceiling. Who knows, maybe her roommate will walk in soon and they could get to know each other.

"Here's to hopefully not a crappy summer."

It didn't take long for Reiko to turn back to her cottage, the teacher seemed polite enough though of course not much of a pushover. It was in her best interest just to follow along quietly and not cause problems which in her eyes seemed the better option. Turning her back from the crowd she followed the path towards her room where perhaps her roommate would be. Although she had no interest in making friends she assumed that most people here had the same thought process as her.

She hoped that they wouldn't have to the stereotypical 'talk about ourselves' thing where everyone would discuss their 'issues' and how they could better themselves. Her own fighting was fuelled from other school challenges especially from gangs who couldn't believe someone like her could even fight much less win in one. Reiko had hoped that she could continue her dojo practices outside the camp but it seemed that wouldn't be allowed which was unfortunate.

Quickly looking at her watch she figured they'd be time just to explore the place which would at least mean she would be alone but the n again the books she brought could be started upon. Finally Reiko reached cottage number 4 and walked inside to her room. As expected she found her roommate already there and unpacking, something she had yet to do.

Silently she walked to her own bed and unzipped her bag which lay on her bed. Reiko didn't really know whether to converse with the girl but it felt tedious and somehow forced. As she picked up her neatly folded clothes, she finally spoke with her natural quiet voice that also tend to sound somewhat emotionless. "I suppose we'll be rooming together, let's try to get along,"she looked up at Fay before adding "Reiko Kuroki, though I'd assume you would already know."

Fay heard the door open, but she continued to unpack as she was almost done. She would speak to her roommate sooner or later. Though, she did take time to glance at her roommate when she unzipped her bag. Fay just finished unpacking her clothes when she heard Reiko speak. She turned her head and gave the girl a friendly smile.

“Yes, let’s try to get along or this summer so it isn't more unpleasant. It is a pleasure to meet you Reiko Kuroki and yes I already knew because of the bulletin board. Please call me Fay or you won’t get my attention. Is there a name you preferred to be called by?” she replied. Fay unzipped a suitcase and placed her navy blue bedding on her bed with her two king size pillows and a body pillow. She quickly made her bed and placed each pillow at the head of the bed with the body pillow against the wall.

Once she finished she placed her empty bags and then her still filled bags under her bed. My roommate does not look that bad…I wonder why she is here. I would ask her why she is here, but I’d rather not have to say why I am here too. I hope she isn’t some type of bully or thief. She pushed her thoughts quickly out of her head, she did not need to stress herself about what type of delinquent her roommate was. Fay smoothed out her bed before she took a sit on the upper right corner. She crossed her legs before she leaned over to pull out her sports book bag from under the bed. With the bag at her side she unzipped it. Fay pulled out a thick sketchbook and a medium size brief case of art pencils. She opened the case and then her sketchbook to a blank page.

Her eyes wandered out the window as she wondered what she could draw. She was already bored at this placed and she needed a distraction. In her pocket she felt her phone vibrate and swallowed hard, she knew who it was. It was her first love, even though she never replied he still constantly harassed her with a text message everyday at the same time. It got to the point where Fay never bothered to even touch her phone unless she was putting it away or needed to make a call or send a text message. A few minutes later she saw a blue jay land on a tree branch and get into a nest with about four small eggs in it.

She waited until the bird stayed still. After a while the bird closed it’s eyes. Perfect, it is going to rest and I should have time to draw it. Fay took out a pencil as she began to draw her view of the bird through the window. She switched colors often and she took a small white cloth out of the case to merge colors together when she needed. Fay glanced up at the bird now and then and paused as she stopped to sharpen a pencil when it had dulled.

Reiko shook her head as she finished with the last of her packing, "Well some do call me Rei though I've heard Ice Queen is a popular nickname my fellow peers call me.." she shrugged ever so slightly at her answer. Although she never had a problem with the silly nickname, it was somewhat understandable why many would call her that.

Having no desire to question her roommate about why she would be here though she seemed fairly ordinary, Reiko picked up her one of her all time favourite books Fearless and turned to the page she was on. Her eyes drifted away from the book after a few minutes only to check her watch. She wondered what Mitsuki was doing, most likely planning a house party and inviting everyone. At least Reiko didn't have to put up with annoying people and loud music so perhaps she should count her lucky stars.

As she read on a few chapters had gone by and in turn she reached the climax of the story. Fearless was one of those books she found oddly symbolic but then again Tim Lott would always have hidden morals in his stories with plot lines that didn't make sense until read again and again. From the corner of her eye she saw her roommate draw and considered whether Fay would allow someone to look at her art. Reiko had a huge interest in art, even though she wasn't the greatest she did like seeing artwork and was known for spending most of her money on artworks or books.

Sighing quietly she turned the page to her favourite scene where Fearless found out about her identity which made a huge plot twist, this was the part of the book where Reiko was conflicted in her feelings toward a certain character who in the beginning she disliked. Very much like real life she suspected. Half of her wanted to speak to Fay only so she could tell herself she tried to make at least one friend but it seemed that this cold girl didn't really know how to approach people very well.

Alex walked out from her room because the first class... thingy was going to start soon. She didn't want to participate because it felt ridiculous but still what could you do. As she closed the door and turned around she saw him again, just standing outside his cottage. Annoyed she walked right past him as fast as she could without running. She didn't feel like being close to him, she didn't even want to look at him, "Disgusting."

She entered what seemed to be a sport field indoors, which was surprising. She didn't think they would have that much things here, she had imagined it only being something like a school but in the woods. But apparently it wasn't. She looked around confused by what she saw, what was they supposed to do? Gymnastics? That was... odd. She looked around as the others started to gather in the hall, well she did remember seeing their faces around the bulletin board. But some was still new, she guessed that they had come sometime after her - or just stayed away from the groups of people. She was just about to start talking to the one next to her when Karuko showed up and once again an annoyed wrinkle showed up on her forehead. She was still annoyed at him for discussing the things she had in her bag.

"Good afternoon, I'm glad that everyone seems to have showed up. That's a good start." Karuko smiled slightly as he walked up to the things he had prepared before. "Now to the first class of the summer, it's going to focus on the physical. As you can see we have prepared boxing bags, mats and trampolines. Today’s class is mostly going to focus on trusting yourself and your balance - you are going to have to make a back flip on the trampolines. You aren't allowed to leave before you have succeeded with doing that."

Alex looked at the trampolines, a back flip? Are they being serious? Some of the people here doesn’t look like they have been doing anything more than sitting in their chairs for the last couple of years. How the heck are they supposed to do a back flip? She laughed slightly at the thought, she needed to see that it was going to be hilarious!

"If you see someone who needs help feel free to help that person, I'm going to help those who need extra attention since we don't want anyone getting hurt here at camp. When it comes to the boxing bags you can use them whenever you feel like you need to calm your nerves, they are going to be here all the time. And for the mats, you can fight there for this time. Let out all that you have left in you. That's it, no more fighting after this, these skills are here to balance yourselves and let everything out. After today the real lessons start."

Alex scratched her cheek and looked at the things, well yes she was angry at some people right now... but did she feel like fighting? No not really. She didn't even fight that much, well she did hit people sometimes... And kick them. But she never fought, at least she didn't think she did. So the boxing bags and the mats didn't feel that alluring, she didn't feel like getting beaten down at the moment. So naturally she went to the trampolines instead, it didn't seem that hard. If she was able to go down in bridge position she should be able to do a back flip on a trampoline right? She started jumping a little just to feel how it felt and prepared to do what they were assigned to do. But she didn't land on her feet’s, nor did she sit down on the ground after turning around in the air. Nope, she found herself lying down on her back on the trampoline just staring up at the ceiling. Well... this was harder than she had thought.

Fay heard her roommate speak, but she wasn’t listening so she ended up not even replying. She tucked away what her roommate said in her memory so she could reply when she finished her drawing. Though, she assumed her roommate didn’t mind with her lack of response, as she said nothing else. It took a while, but finally she had finished. She blew away any exceed pencil and eraser remains from her drawing and placed it down on her pillow. Fay was glad at how realist her image looked.

Her steady gazed moved away from the window and landed on her roommate. She couldn’t help it as she gave her roommate a quick look up and down. She was attractive, but Fay didn’t plan on doing anything with her. It could be because she felt more depressed than usual, but she decided it would be best if she just got through the program without causing any unwanted issues for herself. This program is just for the summer, once it is over I can go back in my room and I guess go to school so I don’t get in trouble again. I hope no one has questions for me when I go back to school.

Fay scanned the covered of the book and wondered what it was about, but she ignored the urge to ask. She didn’t want to disturb her roommate while she read anyhow. Reiko could consider it rude if she did. Fay stood and stretched slowly before she took her phone from her pocket. She looked at the time quickly and placed her phone back in its proper location. I should head to class so I can be early. She glanced at her roommate once more. She very softly cleared her throat.

"Excuse me for interrupting, but I just wanted to let you know I am going to head to the lesson a bit early. Happy reading, but you should leave soon so you don’t get in trouble on the first day," she said softly in a sweet and friendly voice. She paused as she wondered if she should say anything else. Fay decided they could always talk later when the female wasn’t reading. With that decision she left the cottage and headed to where the first class was to be held.

Once she was there she took a quick look around before her eyes landed on a man who began to speak. A backflip? I just have to do a backflip and I can go? Well, I will need to go back to the room to change so everyone doesn’t see my underwear. Hopefully I can do a backflip quickly…it shouldn’t be that hard to do, well I will see anyways. I don’t think I will be doing anything else after the backflip so I should find something to do. I’ll just bring my sketchbook and pencil case back so I can draw once I finish.

When the teacher stopped speaking Fay headed back to her room. In her room she changed into a fitted short sleeve gym shirt, ankle length sweats, short socks, and a pair of converses. Her whole outfit was black. She ran her fingers through her hair before she grabbed her sketchbook and case. She closed her sketchbook before she left the room and went back to where the class was held. Fay placed her sketchbook and case under the trampoline she was going to use. Next she took her shoes off and placed them with her other things. Then she got on top of a trampoline. Fay stood on the trampoline for a while as she got a feel for the trampoline. Including she was wondering how exactly to do a backflip on a trampoline. She had never done a backflip before.

Image Putting two fingers inside his mouth, he let out a loud whistle. "Alright class listen up. You must at least attempt a backflip right now. So gather around the Six Spaced Trampoline. Only six at a time. And also. I changed my mind. None of you may leave until Everyone has made at least one back flip. So learn to work together and help each other out."

After saying that he smiled at everyone, holding his clipboard right in front of him. With a soft chuckle he walked over to the front doors and locked it with a huge thick pad lock that hung from one side of the door. The back door was also the same. "Bathrooms are to your right and snacks are to your left."

Image The day was still long and it was no where near night just yet. But already Karuko was tired and wanted to go to bed. Softly be mumbled to himself and headed back to the trampolines, sitting down on a chair that was their for just himself.

Quietly he went through his clipboard, softly rubbing his lips as he thought while he read. He was studying up on the list of peoples fears that are here before him. It always helped him with ideas and ways to help them, but other times it will turn for the worst. So think of ways that could help them, who knows. He though, has yet to fail to help someone, even if they didn't want help, he still did it.

Sliding his fingers from his lips he rubbed his jaw while glancing over his students. They really weren't bad kids. they were just kids who didn't know where to go in life. Kids who didn't have anyone to trust or fall on when they needed it. So the only thing was to rely on was this. Which was sad, but atleast they had a place to be.

Looking down his cleared his throat softly, touching his chin with his other arm crossed under and over his chest. His one leg crossed over the other and held the clipboard in his lap. "If any of you ever needed someone or something. You can talk to me or ask me, when ever you like, anytime of the day or night. Please don't any of you forget that. I understand that I am just a teacher, but I too was once where all of you are today. I at least understand this much. But if not me, talk to each other. Open up, this may very well be your only chance to let everything out."

With that he fell into silence, eyes closed and arms crossed over his chest. Slowly he looked up at everyone with his deep sky blue eyes, almost the color of a white blue. They were soft and caring, so they would understand that what he says is the truth and no lies within.

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.
