Description




Renji Koyama


Image
Image






Name
Renji Koyama

Nicknames
He always introduces himself as “Ren” so that’s what people tend to call him, though some do still call him Renji. It doesn’t really matter to him much about what you call him, though he doesn’t like people calling him a pervert (he kind of twitches when they do).

Age
18


Role
Male 3


Sexuality
Heterosexual

Face Claim
Joker (Black Butler)




Image
Positive traits
- Trustworthy, he always keeps his promises, and he’ll take your secret to the grave (even if it leads him there).
- Confident, He has confidence in his own abilities despite whatever crap other people spout, and frequently wears a smile.
- Open, he doesn’t prejudge people and is very open to differences and listening to opposing ideas. By no means will he agree with you, and by no means will you change his mind, but he’s always open to listen and consider.
- Observant, No matter what’s going on or how he’s acting in the moment, Ren is always observing people. He watches their actions and their reactions in certain situations or to how certain things are said. Some people might see this as creepy or something (if they know about it) but he sees it as something positive, a way to survive, and (in some instances) a way to mess with people.
- Protective, he tries not to form strong attachments, but when he does start to care for something, he puts his whole being into protecting whatever/whoever it is.
- Easy Going, His confidence is balanced out by a somewhat layed back feeling which can make him seem more relatable and comfortable to be around.
- Kind, He likes to see other people with genuine smiles.
- Curious, this can be both good and bad, but he's always curious about things. His curiosity is one reason he's so observant. He wants to know how everything and everyone works and likes to figure people out, even though it can get him into trouble sometimes.
- Intelligent, He's very smart, and would probably be at the top of his class if he didn't purposefully mark the wrong answers all the time.


Image
Negative traits
- Masking , He tends to stuff, oppress, or mask his emotions (hate, sorrow, rage) and mental chaos so it’s always reeling right underneath his skin. He’s like a time bomb waiting to explode from behind his smiles and calm.
- Split Personality, because of the masking (and other issues), it can sometimes seem like he has a second persona. Whenever his mask cracks, he becomes almost like another person, going from gentle smiles and kind words to cold glares and cruel words.
- Disconnected, It’s very difficult for Ren to form any genuine or lasting bonds with people. He’s been let down and betrayed so many times that his natural defense is to block them out. He doesn’t even realize he’s doing it.
- Disturbing, He has a strange fascination with blood, sharp objects, and fire, and also seems to talk to himself sometimes. He also has a tendency to try and freak people out/threaten them/mess with them by giving dark, in depth, and/or somewhat psychotic descriptions of things he might do/would like to do (which he usually isn't serious about... or is he?).
- Annoying, He’s a little mischievous and likes to mess around with people, so once he finds your buttons or that one things that annoys the heck out of you, he will exploit it as much as possible.
- Jealous, This might be a tad unexpected, with his layed back tendencies and disconnection, but just like with how he becomes super protective once something’s captured his heart, he can also become pretty jealous and childish once he starts to care.
- Distrust, The boy has trust issues stemming from past betrayals, so though he’ll accept you as you are, it takes a good while for him to trust you.
- Stubborn/Rebellious, He hates when people tell him what to do or try to control him, and if it seems like you're trying to force your expectations onto him, he'll do exactly the opposite of what you want (it's one of the reason as to why he purposefully fails his classes)

Bio
((horrible, hor-hor-hooorrrible at Bio's. If you need more info on certain things or more detail in certain areas, or if something needs to be explained or revised, let me know. I get seriously vague halfway through, and it only gets vaguer))

"My life? Tch! Nothing special. It really sucks, actually. To this day the only person it seems my parents really ever care about is my older brother Keiji. All their hopes, all their efforts and praise... It was all pointed towards Keiji. No matter how hard I worked or how perfect I tried to be, it was never enough for them. I was always "the other" child that no one really cared about, looked at, or expected anything from. Doesn't matter that I was the youngest student to make it into the advanced martial arts class, or that my intellectual ranking was 2nd in the entire school. Doesn't matter how much of a "perfect child" I was according to other parents, because according to my parents I wasn't as good as Keiji, so I wasn't worth their time and attention. Pathetic. It's pathetic how much effort I put in to trying to make those people like and accept me. You'd think I hated my brother, right? Yeah? Well, wrong. Turns out, Keiji was the only one who seemed to actually care. Where it seemed to me that Keiji was the center of my parents world, it also seemed to me that I was somehow the center of my brother's world. Conceited little brat, wasn't I? He was always there for me. He didn't spoil me or anything, he simply accepted me and was just there, ya know? I could tell him anything, we could do stupid and crazy things together. When I did something right, he'd smile and ruffle my hair. When I failed at something I'd get either a sigh or a joke, and he'd just tell me to do better next time. He was a really cool and layed back guy. I thought of him as a friend, a rival, a brother, and sometimes even as a father.

Things started to change when I entered middle school and he entered high school. I don't know when the distance between us started to grow, but suddenly one day it was like we were strangers. He was never around, always out with friends. At some point, he and dad started having arguments. At some point, my dad started taking his anger at Keiji out on me, and I also ended up as the target for my mother's pent up frustrations. It's kinda funny, ya know? The people I so desperately wanted to pay attention to me, I now desperately wished they'd forget I existed. My brother didn't seem to have trouble with that, though. To him, I stopped existing. I became angry, and the anger kept building. I started getting into fights at school and on the street. One day, I crossed fists with the wrong guy. Don't get me wrong, I sure as hell beat the shit out of him, but what I didn't know or really care about was that the guy's brother was an important member of one of the city's gangs. Just two or three days later, the guy's brother and a few of the other gang members jumped me. I was able to hold my own for a while, but they overpowered me in size and number. Frankly, they beat me within an inch of my life before someone intervened. The person who saved and protected me was Keiji. The person who was lying in a growing pool of blood with a knife in his ribs was Keiji. The kid who couldn't stop shaking was me. What a worthless, useless kid I was.

That's when I got the scar across my eye, though the tattoo would come later, and that's really when it all began. My parents blamed me, one by one my friends betrayed me, and people started calling me a murderer. I blocked everyone and everything out. No matter what they said or did, I didn't respond. I felt numb, living within my mind with memories that wouldn't disappear. I accepted it. Yeah, it was my fault. Yeah, I'm a murderer. I get it, so shut up. Shut up! But they kept repeating it over and over again, and that's when you can say my mind started to shift.

The first time they called me Keiji, the first time my parents acted like Renji died and Keiji survived, my mind snapped. All I can remember feeling was a sudden and intense rage and hate. These people, I wanted to kill them. They started to try and force Keiji's identity onto me, and like hell they would. After my mind snapped I became almost a completely different person in personality and mannerisms. I started changing into who I am today.

Being around my family was suffocating, and being in school was irritating. I constantly did things to make my parents mad and to widen the gap between mine and Keiji's identities. I started purposefully failing my classes and screwing around. I took up different things like skating and drawing, and my life moved on, or so it appeared. There were two sides to my personality, and most people only saw the smiling and carefree side. Others, those who saw the second side, were either extremely good at reading people, or more times than not they were just extremely unlucky. Kind of like the guy I sent to the hospital in order to get sent to this camp.

Talents And Skills

•Skating (more specifically, blading): he loves the rush it gives, and it’s just fun.

•Fighting: trained in the martial arts mainly for self defense purposes

•Has great reflexes and agility, probably due to his martial arts training

•Artist (mostly sketches and pencil drawings): drawing isn’t just a skill or love, it’s an escape, and an escape that stops the chaos of his mind and the world and brings him complete peace.

•Knife throwing/handling (ties in with his fascination for sharp objects as well as a time when he was younger and thinking about running away and joining a circus)

•Balance: He has a balance comparable to that of a tightrope walker (half because of training and half because of when he went through the wanting to run away to the circus thing)

Fears

•Losing Consciousness: It isn’t necessarily a fear of losing consciousness, but the fear of being able to feel one’s self lose consciousness. He hates being able to feel himself losing consciousness because it’s like he can feel his brain shutting down or dying, and that freaks him out.

•Losing control and/or giving in to impulses and desires he feels he shouldn’t (like those sudden, split second impulsive thoughts of things like throwing a brick at, poking, or stabbing someone).

•Dogs, though he won’t admit it. He loves cats, but has a paralyzing fear of dogs.

•Someone getting too close to him.

Family
Mother
Mikoto Koyama

Father
Ryota Koyama

-Siblings if any-
Keiji Koyama (deceased brother)

Family Description
Renji has an absolutely horrible relationship with his parents. They don't understand him and are always trying to control him and his future. To top it off, they blame him for the death of his older brother, Keiji, and he's constantly reminded of the incident. He feels a lot of the time that his parents are trying to make him live out his life as if he were Keiji instead of Renji. It pisses him off, and whenever he's around them feels like he's going insane. The relationship between his mother and father is strained as well, so when he isn't dealing with them, they're usually dealing with each other. He avoids them and really avoids being home in general as much as possible.
The family in general is a middle, working class family with both parents working.




Reason For Getting There
Well, the first reason is because he's (purposefully) failing all of his classes. The second is that he recently beat the shit out of a guy who kept messing with him and pushed him too far. Ren's mask of calm and control not only cracked, but shattered. He snapped, placing the guy into the hospital and getting himself placed in handcuffs for a night.

Likes
-Messing with people
-Skating (aggressive and tricks as well as speed)
-Cats
-Fire
-Sharp objects (mostly knives)
-Watching people
-Coffee
-Spicy Food
-Music (most any kind)
-Independence
-Drawing
-Psychology/The Mind
-Thrillers, Horror, and Gore
-Balancing himself or inanimate objects
-Doing dangerous or risky things
-Motorcycles
-Leaning on shorter people's shoulders or head/Patting shorter people on the head (both more of a habit)

Dislikes
-Dogs
-Control Freaks
-Being told what to do or bossed around
-Betrayal
-Sweets and sugary stuff
-Sleeping/Going to sleep
-Judgmental People
-Clingy People
-Not knowing things

Having to skip his second class at the camp probably wasn’t a very good start and wouldn't give a good impression, but Renji couldn’t care less about that. He just hoped the teacher dude didn’t bug him about it. He hated when they did that. Didn’t they know it only made him want to go less? If he was too exhausted to move, who can blame him for skipping? Besides, he got permission from the nurse, so it shouldn't be that big of a deal. The dude has serious sleep issues, so he just has to collapse sometimes. Like, literally just collapse or pass out. Unluckily, that time had had to be early this morning. At least he wasn't tired anymore...

As he walked out of his cabin he stretched his arms up over his head. Once he felt his back pop, he let his arms drop, rolling his shoulders before cracking neck, wrists, and fingers. People tell him he shouldn’t do that, but, hey, it was a habit and he was always so stiff first thing when he got up anyways. He stuffed his hands down into his jean pockets as he started to make his way towards where he thought he remembered the lunch place to be. He passed a blond headed girl on the way, pausing for a moment to watch her continue to walk towards the cabins. He didn’t know her, but her expression had said she wasn’t feeling too great at the moment.

He watched her walking away for a moment more before shrugging and starting back towards the lunch room. At this “camp” he was pretty sure he’d run in to her again. Besides, she had a pretty attractive and unique look. He figured she’d be easy to spot. He probably wouldn't admit it to anyone, but he was actually really glad for this camp thing. Meant he didn't have to go home for a while, and he could probably meet some people who didn't "know" about him (or think they knew), meaning he didn't think he'd have to put up with people calling him a cold hearted murderer for a while.

Pretty soon, Ren found himself in a crowd of the rest of the “campers.” He guessed the class had just let out or something. That’s better for him anyways. Walking into the throng of people, he passed different groups until one conversation caught his attention, making him grin and raise an eyebrow before flippantly deciding to join in, throwing an arm over the shoulders of an only slightly taller purple headed guy who seemed to be shrinking back from the other two. “Well, Miss Golden Eyes, Mr. Christmas over there would need to grab a number and step in line before take’n a peek at my new model. Neh?” He gave a smile and a wink to the purple haired guy before blinking and pretending to think for moment. He turned towards him, placing both hands on one of the guy’s shoulders, resting his chin on his hands, and looking up at the guy putting on an innocent, somewhat bored, and yet inquisitive expression, “Though I’m a little curious now, myself…”

He made sure to stare at the guy for a moment before smiling, pulling back, and clapping him on the shoulder. “Kidding…” then as an afterthought, “mostly, anyways.” To all three of them he proceeded to introduce himself, “Oh, and I’m Ren. Renji Koyama.” He stuffed his hands back into his pockets, taking on his usual layed back but confident appearance. “Don’t think we’ve met yet since I had to miss class today, but,” he shrugged, “now we have.”

“Well, Miss Golden Eyes, Mr. Christmas over there would need to grab a number and step in line before take’n a peek at my new model. Neh?”

The golden eyes behind the thick rimmed, red glasses went huge- the tiniest of dusts blushes dusting Ayako's cheeks, as opposed to the furious blush spreading from nose to cheek on Yasu's face. He looked as though he was about to bolt, the huge, hopeful grin pulling the corners of Ayako's lips only adding to how unnerved he was feeling. Not only did he look utterly frightened and flustered, he also had a completely confused look on his features. Yasu definitely didn't know what was going on anymore. Nor did Ayako, but whatever it was it was, it had to be exciting, so she'd just go along with it!

"N-n-new model?"
"Really?!"

The words left both their mouths simultaneously, golden and purple eyes like glued to the person just having entered the scene.

“Kidding…”

Yasu's shoulders relaxed. He'd just been joking. Since Yasu was usually unable to tell if that was the case or not, he'd feared the worse. Just because he was gay didn't mean he'd like to strip for any guy. Especially not when he knew there was a fujioshi on camp. His gaze glided to Ayato, who was now folding his his arms over her almost non existent chest, her lips pushing out into a pout. "I-I'ts rude to get a girls hopes up," she complained, turning her back on them in an overly dramatic manner. Of course, she wasn't truly upset. Just perhaps a little disappointed. She'd give almost anything to see some RL boy on boy actions... and, even if she didn't actually get to see it, knowing it was happening was enough to set her fujioshi mind ablaze.

“Oh, and I’m Ren. Renji Koyama. Don’t think we’ve met yet since I had to miss class today, but, now we have.”


It took a moment before Ayako turned back around, seeming to study the male carefully as she kept mock sulking. Then, after a few more seconds, she unfolded her arms, tilting her head to the side as she gazed up at him with her golden orbs. "You're handsome s-so I'll forgive you. she placed her hands on her hips, still pouting a little before letting her features split into a large smile. "I'm Ayako Takashiro, welcome to the camp of delinquents!

"T-the name's Yasu..." Yasu mumbled shyly before smiling down at Renji slightly, "n-nice to meet you..."

Aki Kimura




The young man had been blushing, like expected. Cute. Aki smiled towards him and opened his mouth to talk again when some little girl shows up out of nowhere, talking about everything and anything. Sure he was curious about how the young man looked down stairs, mostly to see which one was bigger. Probably Aki but he couldn't be sure. But still, saying that kind of stuff in front of a guy that looks like he can faint from embarrassment any second? No, just no. Stupid girl.

He watched the little midget for a few seconds. People might say she was cute but not really in his eyes. Just... Annoying. Butting in on people's conversations like that. Seriously, what the fuck is up with that? He just wanted to make the young man feel a little safe, lighten his mood. There's so many other people there so why should she join, no, butt in, on their conversation? Can't she go talk with the girls about make up and perfumes or whatever girls talk about? Yeah, yeah, girls are annoying...

While he stood there, thinking about what to do next, there's obviously another guy stopping by, butting in. This isn't even funny anymore. He sighed before turning around and quietly leaving. Now what? Maybe he should try talking to Alex again? No, why bother... How about going to the bulletin board? That's where the information about the next class was supposed to be, right? He sighed and walked over to it.

-Renji-


"You're handsome s-so I'll forgive you."

Renji grinned a bit as she continued to pout before a huge smile split her face. She seemed a little weird, but cute in her own way.

"I'm Ayako Takashiro, welcome to the camp of delinquents!"

His grin went full fledged at her exclamation. He couldn't help but laugh a little as he reached a hand out to ruffle her hair, a habit of his he'd found most people to think annoying. "Hmm... That's a cute name. I'd like to say it's good to be here, but, ya know..." He blinked, distracted as he noticed and watched a not-too-happy looking Mr. Christmas walking off. Huh... What's with him? Guy seems kinda moody... He brought his hand back to place both behind his head, a little curious about the dude.

"T-the name's Yasu... n-nice to meet you..."

Ren's attention was brought back to the tall purple haired guy who was smiling for the first time since Ren showed up. Before that Renji was almost sure the guy was ready to bolt. Yasu's smile and talk was more on the shy side, and, despite his size... cute... for a guy, that is.

Possibilities ran through his mind about how easy it seemed it'd be to mess with with him. Renji smiled, nodding towards Yasu with his hands still resting behind his head. "It's good to meet you as well." As the last word left his mouth, Renji's stomach growled. "Eh, ah... Oh, yeah..." He'd forgotten about food. He brought one hand down to rest on his empty stomach and checked the watch he wore on the opposite wrist. He sighed deeply. It was time to go meet for the next event or whatever. If he ate now, he'd be late... and having to miss the earlier class... He sighed again before shrugging to himself, "Aw, well. Guess I'll have to eat later..." He mumbled to himself before smiling and giving a little wink and wave to the two interesting people he'd just met, "Think I'll check about our next event, or whatever," and started to leave towards the bulletin board, stuffing his hands down into his pockets.

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.

-Renji-



As soon as he looked at the paper Renji blinked, thinking, ‘….riddles? Dude wants us to play puzzle games, now?’

Sure enough, playing puzzle games was exactly what the teacher dude was wanting them to do. Not that Renji minded riddles, he actually liked them. Riddles were fun to figure out, to use, and to make up, and he usually didn’t think they were that difficult. Reading over them he already had ideas for a few of the answers, while others he wasn’t so sure about. What spoiled everything was that they were being told they had to play a riddle scavenger hunt game with teams and rules. It was interesting, yes, but Renji didn’t like how Karuko rattled off the “rules and regulations” of their game. It seemed more like a “reforming” assignment or whatever to him, which made him not want to have anything to do with it.

Besides, why teams? Ren felt he was better off doing things by himself, especially after glancing around at the rest of the people there. They weren’t very reliable in his mind. Of course, he didn’t think any person was reliable in the first place, so it didn’t really matter if they seemed to be reliable or not.

He sighed, giving a shrug. Who cares? He wasn’t going to actually try at it, so he’d just go along with his “team” or whatever. If they asked him to help or something, he’d just give them one of the answers he’d come up with already. No harm in that. Besides, it might be fun watching them puzzle over some of the things. Speaking of teams…

Renji stopped thinking and muttering to himself when he heard a name he recognized and waited to see if he’d be called out for the same team as well, which he wasn’t. ‘Hmm, so that Ayako girl is on a different team. Okay, then. The teacher dude went on to say the names of everyone in the last team. He rattled them off, Renji not recognizing any of them besides his own, until the last name was called.

Instantly his annoyance at the stupid game disappeared and he smiled. Ah, a name he could recognize. He found Yasu, started to attempt to put an arm around the guy’s shoulders, but decided not to because Yasu was taller, so settled for tapping the guy on the shoulder before stuffing his hands back into his pockets. Ren opened his mouth to say something, but stopped when he heard someone shout,

“Hey, team Lynda! Over here!”

He blinked, eyes roaming the crowd for the source of the voice to see a pretty brunet. He thought she seemed like she’d be an interesting character, waving her arms, smiling, and shouting like that. He rubbed the back of his head with one hand. She seemed both sweet and tough by the looks of her. Too bad they weren’t on the same team. That would have been an entertaining set up. Hmm… He might actually want to do this stupid game now simply to compete with her. Only maybe, though.

Out of the corner of his eye, Renji spotted another familiar person. Mr. Christmas with his red hair and green eyes. He turned his head towards the guy with a small grin, using the hand he’d had behind his head to give a small wave to the dude, “Yo,” before stuffing it back into his pocket. He wondered again if the dude was one of those moody guys, thinking of how he randomly stomped off at Renji’s earlier appearance. It could be interesting if he was. Hopefully he wouldn’t turn out to be one of those arrogant idiots, though. Renji never really got along with those kinds, though they could be fun to screw with sometimes. Same for stuck up and snobby bit*hes. He really just didn't know enough about the people here, yet.

He shrugged at his thoughts and smirked a bit, halfway imitating the girl he assumed to be Lynda.

“Oy! Last team called over here!” he called and lazily waved one hand in the air about three times before relaxing it back down to rest in a pocket as he stood next to the taller, purple haired Yasu.

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.

"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."

Alfred James

♨♨♨♨♨♨


“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."

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 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 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-


Image


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 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.

As the group talked about dates and whatnot Tatsuo let his mind drift for a minute before remembering Emily who he still had his arm around. "Emily, right? You seem like the observant type. I think we'll get along well." As he spoke Tatsuo shot her a smile before tuning back into the others just in time to hear Alex. “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?” Instantly perking up Tatsuo called over to Alex. "A graveyard? I'm in! Let's go there first!"
As they continued to walk Tatsuo heard Renji start speaking and instead of zoning out again he listened. "Wohow! Thanks to you two we've pretty much solved all of the riddles and can get this game over with." After pausing for a moment Renji continued. "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?" After considering a moment Tatsuo shrugged. "I don't care as long as I get to go to the graveyard." Suddenly Tatsuo stopped talking as if he remembered something. "But I don't have my cell on me... I didn't have access to it when I.... left."

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..."

As the group approached the exit a single colorful person could be noticed standing there all alone. Outwards it indeed was a girl, long red curls lied neatly against the back of the white turtleneck. Underneath it was a bland short black skirt with matching black stockings. No there wasn't anything odd about this girl that the eye could detect, well sure she had a bit broad shoulders but that was all. At least that's was what you could think because underneath the clothes lied a much larger error. The girl's name was John and no she wasn't an actual girl.

Skylar as he choose to call himself had been ditched by the group he had been assigned to so now he was in a bit of a pinch. He needed to make the assignment but how was he supposed to do it without an actual group? His group had gotten tired of him as soon as they met of him because of his wearisome personality and they were overall not such good people so they just told him he wasn't wanted. And Skylar had too much dignity to just follow them like some puppy so he ditched them as well, so now he stood there waiting for a new group to just hijack.

He had been watched the group that took longer time than the other's to leave for a while, why was mostly because he knew that his new roommate was in the room. It was hard not to remember his face from the introduction earlier, there wasn't many that had white hair - Kojou was his name if he remembered correctly. It would be fun to see his reaction when Skylar would announce that to him since he was indeed dressed as a girl at the moment.

When the group came closer Skylar simply stepped out in front of them with his hands on the hips before pointing towards them, "You are in my group now!" He was serious when he said it, he didn’t smile or say it like a joke. When he thought about hijacking a group he was very serious. "So how's it going with the riddles? Almost done? Done? Have you not even begun? If you haven't even started with them I demand you all to start working! I need to be done soon so I can do something else than be a part of some ridiculous treasure hunt!"

Right after Tatsuo finished speaking Lynda walked over with a smirk on her face. "Don't worry, I have mine. I think group pictures count, so I'll just include you in mine." Tatsuo smiled at her in thanks before she turned away to speak to the group. "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." She then went to walk off, Tatsuo moving to follow but after a few steps she stopped and he did as well. "Umm... can someone tell me which way I'm going...?" Laughing Tatsuo walked up and hooked her arm with his, pulling her with him as he walked towards the camp's exit. "Come on. I'll show you. I grew up roaming all over this city. I bet I could even navigate it with my eyes closed." He said this with a smirk of his own though there was a glint of pride n his eyes that told he really could do as he said.
As they reached the gate, which was really only about minutes walk away, a girl with red hair stepped in front of them, causing Tatsuo to stop quickly and accidentally tug hard on Lynda's arm. Realizing what he did he immediately unhooked his arm and placed his hand behind her back to steady her just in case he had caused her to loose her balance. "You are in my group now!" After a moment's pause the girl continued to speak, obviously not caring anyone's input on the matter. "So how's it going with the riddles? Almost done? Done? Have you not even begun? If you haven't even started with them I demand you all to start working! I need to be done soon so I can do something else than be a part of some ridiculous treasure hunt!"
After making sure Lynda had kept her balance Tatsuo looked back at the girl with slightly narrowed eyes, hoping his quick change of focus would draw attention away from his kindness towards Lynda. "Hey Princess, calm yourself. We aren't your slaves. If you want to be in our group you ask and if you want help solving the riddles you have to take part. Everyone lifts their own weight or their left behind. Understood?" While his voice and eyes were stern Tatsuo's posture was relaxed as he spoke. At the tone of his voice and his ease in telling the girl off it was obvious Tatsuo had given a variation of this speech more than once and was not afraid to give it again. After he finished he waited to hear the girl's response.

Kamiko Inokira

She looked down at her phone once me."This is for the best." The message read sent from her mother. She stared at it from time to time as she was taken to the camp. She didn't protest at all. The people responsible for them tried to talk to her but she gave no response merely walking to her cabin and putting her things away. She was informed that her group had started on the riddles and were currently out. They expected her to find them on her own. they directed her in the area where her group had gone but she could have honestly cared less about it. "Maybe she should stay here?" The woman whispered to the man. "She has to." The man stated. But Kamiko had already begun to walk by the time they whispered about it.
She made her way into the forest looking around as to where she was suppose to go. She tried to look on her phone and figure out where she was even heading, but there was no service and that caused her to mentally groan at it. She didn't have any motivation to find them either way. She could honestly careless about this place and didn't want to be there anyways. Her feet dug into the dirt as she walked. She moved slowly almost like a turtle as she carried on. She began to hear voices ahead male and female. She slowly began to follow the voices before catching a glimpse of what seemed to be part of a group. Maybe it was her own, but she didn't even know the names of the people she was suppose to be in a group with.
"I don't do people."
She was close to the group and heard the female begin to speak. She rubbed her temples automatically as she was already so demanding. It caused her to shake her head and want to bag her head against a tree. The exact type of person she didn't like at all. Some people really couldn't think about others themselves. She looked at the girl approaching the group quietly. She didn't say a word at all. In fact she gave the girl a wicked grin. In one swift motion she kicked the girls legs hoping I would make her fall to the ground. Kamiko didn't have any expression on her face as she did so and just looked.
"I don't know who you are, but you need to shut your mouth." She stated in a calm tone of voice.
Maybe today wasn't a good day for her at all. The home setting was throwing her off and she didn't even to be there at all. The message popped up in her mind and her hands balled up in anger. "Its all their fault." She thought to herself when the message played into her thoughts. She didn't pay attention to the other people around her at all. She didn't want to go to this camp and couldn't careless about some dumb riddle they had to solve from some unknown reason. This all just made her even more upset. She wanted them all to be gone and she wanted to go back home. She stuffed her hands in her pocket and began to walk ahead not going anywhere in particular.

It was not like Skylar had thought that he would get such a warm welcome from the group that he just decided to join without their permission, but he had not thought that they would be this against it. They seemed to need a leader since they were still on the camp ground but when he took charge - even though he wasn't a part of the group, which was probably the issue as well - they refused his leadership. As the red haired guy told him off Skylar only snorted with a disproving expression in response.

Skylar disliked being told of and he truly thought that it was going to be the worst part of the experience, but little did he know. He did notice the short haired girl as she emerged from the background, at first he didn't think much of it at all but well that was until she passed him and actually made him loose his footing. He found himself stumble to the ground and when he hit it he kind of blanked out, he just stared at it too shocked to raise up once more.

"I don't know who you are, but you need to shut your mouth."

When the girl continue to walk Skylar flew to his feet’s again and pointed angrily at her, "How dar-," Even though Skylar had a brighter voice than most males he was indeed a man and he did disguise his voice to sound more like a girl. And for a split moment when he burst out in rage he did forget himself and the true voice was let out, in panic he dragged his hands over the wig to make sure it sat like it should as well. When he was done he did turn towards the girl again, "How dare you do something like that to me! What's your problem?! How about I just kick you to the ground, eh?!"

Lynda heard the redhead laugh before walking over and hooking arms with her and dragging her along, telling her he knew which way to go. She was a little flustered at first, but accepted his offer. It was a good compromise - he showed her where to go, and she included him in her picture. As they got closer to the gate, Lynda realized she didn't even know his name. As she opened her mouth to ask, another woman stepped in front of them, causing a sudden stop from her companion and she almost fell from how he tugged her arm. Thankfully, he supported her.

Who was this new redhead? She looked pretty well put together for someone in a place like this. She was surprisingly bossy, immediately declaring herself apart of the group and issuing orders. Lynda didn't have too much against bossy types, but to appear out of nowhere and assume leadership was bold... and a little rude. She was quickly chewed out by the guy showing her where to go, which just brought out a snort from the bossy newcomer.

One surprise after another, a second newcomer showed up without saying a word. Lynda wondered about her as she approached the redhead, and her eyes widened when she saw the grin she was wearing. She knew what that meant. Before she could warn her, curly hair's legs were kicked out from under her, causing her to fall onto her back with a thud. The attacker ordered her to shut her mouth before walking away, and the redhead got up and threatened to kick her back, mad enough that she heard her voice crack for a second. As interesting as this was, she needed to stop this. Who better to break up a possible fight than herself?

"Alright, everyone calm down." She ordered, walking over to the curly boss and dusting her off. "I'll go talk to her, just relax." Lynda told her quietly before jogging to catch up with the other girl.

"Hey, wait! She called to her as she caught up, placing a hand on her shoulder to get her attention. She gave her a quick gaze. She seemed average, but something was off-putting about her. She had this vibe about her. A vibe that put a chill down her spine. Whatever it was, it certainly wasn't happiness or joy. No, this girl was something else.

Hey, I don't know what that was about, but you shouldn't just kick people out of the blue like that, even though it was kind of funny. I don't know your reasons, but maybe you should go and apologize to her, huh? Nothing good comes from making enemies."

~Renji~

Image


Renji's eyes went cold with a ting of distaste and he frowned at the appearance of a red headed and bossy girl. He didn't do well with bossy types, not that he actually cared, but he hated being ordered to do anything by anyone. He highly doubted that the still unnamed boy's little speech to the girl would do any good. Things like that didn't really faze these types. Only made them more obnoxious. Then yet another girl appeared, walking towards the red headed girl with a certain expression that made Ren think he could guess her intentions.

A ghost of a smile graced his lips as the red head stumbled to the ground. That may have been a bit much, but it was entertaining. His eyes followed the normal looking girl as she walked away. He was pleasantly surprised to encounter yet another interesting person. Really, he found it was two more interesting persons as the red headed girl exploded at the other. That was definitely not a girl's voice at the start of that rant. He didn't know how many others noticed it, in fact he doubted they did, but he bet that this bossy girl was no girl at all. Great. He shook his head a bit in quiet surprise. He really hadn't expected to meet a possible cross dresser at this ridiculous camp. Possible because there was a chance he could be wrong.

And then, Lynda to the rescue. A fighter but a peacekeeper at the same time, huh? He found he liked this brunette, though there was no reason for her to go after the other girl.

Renji walked towards the red headed 'girl', eyes cold but a lazy smile painted on his face and hands resting in his pockets. "Harsh. You okay, Princess?" he said, using the same term as the unnamed boy to identify her.





Rose Davis

Rose stared blankly at an unfamiliar but pretty girl's exclamation. Unlike Rose who was simply and quietly following this group of people, she'd actually claimed this group as her own. Well, rather she ordered its members to join her group, but still. Rose was impressed in a way, and looked this stranger over thinking how different they were. the thought came to her that she was Rose, a simple musician in the presence of a royal princess. She blinked when one of the boys gave a small speech, addressing the girl as 'Princess' as though he'd read her mind.

A blush came to her cheeks as she started to zone out, but she was snapped back to reality, mouth hanging open in shock as a different girl caused the princess to fall. Well, half reality as she wondered why a peasant girl would attack a royal. Didn't she know the punishment for such an act was death by hanging? Wait... She shook her head to clear it, and when she was 'really' back to reality, she was still shocked at the other's actions. Why do that? It really wasn't necessary to kick the princess like that. She faded out of reality again as the girl Rose had bumped into stepped forward. One of the princess's royal guard! And then a boy stepped forward. Another knight in the royal guard! From there her imagination took off, and she watched the scene with slightly widened eyes as though she was seeing a medieval drama unfolding before her.

When the bossy red-head laughed at him after he lectured her he snapped his mouth shut, his eyes growing dark with anger. Having grown up the way he did and having rose in the ranks of the gang he had called a family he was used to being listened to. The last person to have laughed at him when he spoke and get away unscathed was Raevyn.
Before Tatsuo could react more than he already had, having narrowed his eyes and tensed his stance, another girl came up behind Princess and kicked her legs out from under her. At the sudden violence Tatsuo stepped back and glanced over his shoulder in the direction of the camp. He had just gotten here, the last thing he needed was a fight getting him sent back to Juvy. A moment later Lynda ran off to talk to the girl who had dropped Princess and Renji went to speak to the Princess.

Daisuke searched his brain. He wasn’t familiar with the area, so the whereabouts of the graveyard was a mystery to him. He simply shrugged and yawned slightly. This day was definitely going a bit slower than he’d anticipated. First days of new things tended to go by quickly, but not this time. Suddenly an arm was draped across his shoulder. He opened his eyes and noticed his roommate, Renji, right behind him.

"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?"

That seemed like a great idea, after all, Daisuke hadn’t gotten a chance to formally introduce himself as Renji’s roommate. Besides, that could get this activity over and done with. He turned and looked at the rest of the group who seemed to be doing their own thing. At one point one girl just sat on the ground amid all the chaos. Then one girl, Lynda, started off then remembered she didn’t know where she was going. ‘This is certainly a lively bunch.’

Daisuke looked down and realized he was still linked with Alex. She didn’t seem to mind, but Daisuke was a bit surprised. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d been so uncharacteristically comfortable around someone he barely knew. As he continued to think, his thoughts were disturbed by a tall, colorfully dressed redhead who’d steeped in front of everybody.

"You are in my group now!"

“Well she’s even bolder than the colors she’s wearing.” She was…interesting, and quite pretty, but there was something…off. The guy leaning on Lynda spoke up, giving the girl a piece of his mind. He did make some good points though. Even though her boldness was a little admirable, she did come off as kinda obnoxious. All of a sudden another girl came by and kicked the legs from under the obnoxious girl. Daisuke’s mouth dropped open. He knew the girl had the intention of doing something, but not something that drastic.

"How dar-,"

Another shocker. That girl was a guy. Those few words completely gave him away. Daisuke had never seen a crossdresser before, or at least he hadn’t been aware that he’d seen one before today. Lynda came and brushed off the livid crossdresser and ran off to talk to the culprit. With the look that was on her face, Daisuke didn’t think she’d get far with her.

Daisuke looked back to Renji, noticing the unapproving eyes right before they changed to an almost undetectable smile. As he observed Renji more and more, he got to make little notes in his head about the kind of person he’d be rooming with. Renji approached the disgruntled guy, wondering how he was doing as the girl with purple hair stared as if she were watching a movie.

Daisuke shook his head at all the commotion. A nap sounded more and more appealing and he was eager to get to it. He looked back down at the list of answers he had. A tree. He looked around and spotted one. He held his phone up and snapped a picture. He then turned back towards the cabins and took a picture of a few steps in front of them.

“Two down.”

Daisuke turned back to the group and yelled, “Hey are we still doing the splitting up thing? I’ve got two pictures taken care of, the tree and the stairs. We could get the rest soon if we go ahead and start making progress.”

At this point, that nap was literally calling his name. He looked back down at Alex and smiled.

“Shall we, my lady?”

Kamiko hadn't realized all the people around her at all. She only paid attention to the one girl not caring to glance at the others. When she realized that it wasn't just the two of them her eyes went wide. She didn't ever like to be around groups at all and they had her uncomfortable in ever type of way. She gulped not making eye contact with anyone quickly walking off. What was she thing? Her own thoughts swirled around her head pondering that question. She was just so caught up in hating this camp already se didn't think before kicking the girl. But the girl really did have a horrible attitude and she knew that they wouldn't exactly get along with her if she continued to act like that, not at all.

Her feet scraped against the ground as she walked dragging her feet along. She planned to just keep her mouth shut when she walked away but the all high and mighty girl rose again and spoke to her. She stopped and raised an eyebrow at the girl, although her face wasn't seen. She clenched her hands together trying not to have another violent outburst at all. This girl.... She turned around turning around to face her. Kamiko's face was blank not showing any hint of emotions on her face as she looked at the girl. She had a finger pointed at her and it drove her crazy when people pointed fingers at her, Kamiko grabbed a first full of the girls shirt and pulled her down to her level. "How dare I? How. Dare You." She said looking dead straight into her eyes. "You come over to this group acting all high and mighty, bossing people around. Its the type of reason why you probably ended up here. Along with why people don't really like you." She told her boldly not a speck of hesitation in her voice at all. "I suggest you to apologize to them for your behavior." Was the last thing she said and let go of the girls shirt calmly.

She stuffed her hands back into her pocked and pulled her beanie down over her short cropped hair. She didn't look at anyone around her and continued to walk of. She felt her small backpack shift around and knew her sat had woken up. She pulled it out and carried to into her arms as the cat meowed softly resting her head along her arm quietly. She began to relax to herself the once scary look had gone and she had a more calm and nice look on her face as she held the cat in her arms. But a few minutes later she felt a hand on her shoulder and jumped at the sudden contact accidentally dropping the fluffy kitten and it hissed and waited for her to pick him back up. Kamiko picked him back up and turned to face the girl. Wow, she's nice.. She sighed softly looking at the ground as she was talking to her. "No, I don't. She shouldn't have been talking like that in the first place." She said biting the inside of her cheek looking at her cat. "I don't care if I have enemies, so I don't see your point." She told her waiting a moment. She began to walk again now knowing where she was heading just needing to get away from the stares she got from the group of others.

Skylar was still bursting with anger when some other brunette walked over and tried to calm him down, it didn't exactly work but at least Skylar got quiet. Letting the girl dust him off before she continued to the crazy person that just randomly attacked people. Skylar didn't care, he just folded his arms while glaring at them. Had he been even been suspecting what would happen after wards? No not at all.

It all happened so fast, one minute he was just angry glaring at the girl and the next he suddenly had her face right in front of his. Being kept down by her hand that held a tight grip around his shirt. This just shocked him, he couldn't even react properly at it - he just stared into her eyes without being able to react to what was happening. "How dare I? How. Dare You. You come over to this group acting all high and mighty, bossing people around. Its the type of reason why you probably ended up here. Along with why people don't really like you. I suggest you to apologize to them for your behavior."

And then suddenly it was over, even though the girl had let go and was walking away Skylar still stood bent forward while staring blankly forward. His brain had stopped processing the data around him, he just didn't know what had just happened. It was all too confusing. Somehow the girls words had hit the exact right points and they stung. A lot. Skylar already knew that people didn't like him, he didn't need someone telling it straight to his face. It showed either way.

In the end he straightened his back without saying anything and as he felt how his under lip slightly vibrated by the overwhelming sadness the words had brought him he just covered his mouth with his hands while averting his eyes from those who were still left.

"Harsh. You okay, Princess?"

Even though another person showed up and apparently tried to be considerate Skylar didn't look at him now either. He just continued to stare of into the distance while ignoring the guy, he had no intention to apologize or even speak to these creatures anymore. It wasn't worth it, like they really cared anyway. Or understood.

Image

The last couple of minutes had been intense, Alex didn't even know what to say. Her head hurt quite a bit because of it. She tried to keep up with the flow of events but it was just no way she could do it. Everything just happened so... fast. And it was so much new things at the same time. She didn't even have a clue to why people suddenly had started fighting and why not even one teacher had showed up. Probably because they were too far away where they couldn’t see them anymore - which was a good thing to know.

In the middle of it people apparently still cared about the riddles and she noticed how the one she was holding onto had started taking pictures already. She didn't care because if things would continue to be this way she gladly wanted it to end as quickly as possible. So when he asked her if they should go and continue this "treasure hunt" she quickly nodded, "Yes, the faster I get out away from this the better. It's giving me a headache and I just... No, just get me out of here!" As she said the last part she clung to him even more, wrapping her arms closer around his. Like she was in desperate need for help, which she believed she was. "This is just so... out of control and not in a good way. I don't want to be a part of it if the teachers finds out..."

Rose Davis

Rose watched as she realized she had been wrong and the orange haired boy was not part of the royal guard as he left the princess just as quickly as he'd approached her. It seemed like they were going to abandon the beautiful red head. Why, she didn't really get. Rose had been abandoned by her group... well, more like she wandered away from them and they were gone before she realized it, and if this girl was alone and wanting them to join her group, then maybe she was abandoned too? Moving the sucker to one side of her mouth and puffing her cheeks in both annoyance and determination, the purple headed girl made her way from her quiet place at the back of the group towards the red head. She heard the false guard make what she thought was a somewhat rude joke about turning bi, as she herself was, but ignored him as she passed him.

When she was standing in front of the slightly taller girl, Rose tugged on her sleeve and popped her sucker out of her mouth, same mixer of annoyance and determination on her face as she exclaimed, "I'll join your group! I lost mine." She blushes a bit, embarrassed to admit she'd lost an entire group of people. She let go of the princess's sleeve and gave a grin and a wink, placing her sucker back in her mouth before putting one hand on her hip (shifting her weight) and pointing to the others over her shoulder with her thumb. "I was following them because solving the riddles was too much work."

She put one hand down and rubbed the back of her head with the other, shifting her eyes downward, "I'm not that smart, but I heard someone suggest using phones to find the answers, and two people are better than one, right?"

Lynda wasn't sure what to expect when she confronted this mystery assailant, but two things surprised her. the first was the cat in her arms. She didn't remember seeing it before. Where did it come from? Were pets even allowed here? As adorable as it looked, her attention was taken away from it when she spoke.

Lynda was taken aback on how... cold this girl was as she listened to her reply. Didn't she see that attacking people like that was wrong? She didn't even want to apologize. How could she not see the point she was trying to make? She felt herself get a little irritated, but stomached the feeling. There had to be some way to get her to understand. Even if she had to be blunt about it.

The girl started to walk away, so Lynda walked over to her to attempt to get through to her one more time.

"Okay, listen. You may not care on having enemies, but this is a camp where they sent all the misfits; the ones who acted out enough to risk almost ruining their lives in some cases. I don't know why you're here, and you don't have to tell me, but trust me - you're gonna want to not get on anyone's bad side here. You can get hurt, or jumped, or... you get the point."

Lynda kept quiet for a moment to let that sink in before continuing. "You seem like a nice girl, so I'm only telling you this to help you; if a teacher saw what you did, they could've kicked you out then and there. There are punching bags on the camp grounds. Once you find them, you're allowed to do whatever you want to 'em, okay?"

Her lecture was cut short when she heard the the guy from earlier say he was going to the graveyard. She called to him saying "Hold on, I'm coming too!" before turning back to face the girl. With a smile Lynda started walking backwards while saying "Keep outta trouble, okay?" before jogging to catch up to her riddle partner.

Skylar saw that the guy who had come to cheer him up gave up just as fast as he had approached when Skylar had chosen not to answer him. From Skylar's point of view his actions was just more solid proof that he didn't care the slightest and just acted nice for some reason. The group seemed to be filled with a lot of girls, some of them far from being nice, but Skylar guessed it was to impress some or someone of them that the guy was putting on such an act. Wasn't it usually the reason for guys to do that? Not that Skylar knew, he didn't really hang out with them and no he wasn't a "guy".

When Skylar once again started to glance towards his from now on nemesis, the one that had completely destroyed his image and everything that he cared too much about, someone else approached him. As soon as she spoke he left the brunette alone and looked at the purple haired girl. It was something with the purple hair that lightened his mood, he had always liked the color purple and therefor he was a tad more susceptible to the girl than he had been towards the guy. She didn't ask him how he felt, she asked him if he wanted to create their own group since both of them had lost the one they originally had been put into. Just those simple things cheered Skylar up and he nodded happily.

"Yes, creating our own group sounds like actually like a great plan! Or, I would gladly accept you into mine" As forceful as ever Skylar grabbed the girls hand before and headed away from the others, he didn't feel like letting anyone else inside the group but the purple girl. After a while he realized that he didn't even know her name so with a friendly smile he turned towards her again, "By the way I'm Skylar, what's your name? Or what do you prefer to call yourself?"

[Lyysa's last post]

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.
