When they returned that day, they called out their names. "Justine? Katherine? Tanner? Mason?" No response. They checked the girls room. Nothing. They checked the boys room.
You won't find them again.
Thats what the note said. He tried to comfort her. But that night, she lifted the gun to her head, and killed herself. And the man quickly followed.
Four kids, each have one suitcase. They were left on the streets of Glen Allen, Virginia, with one suitcase only. They only have each other to rely on. But when new kids come around, will they learn to trust one another? Or will the kids keep to themselves? Will they be pushed away?

The Hansens

Justine Hansen- 17, the mother of the group. Always looking out for her brothers and sisters, making sure they're going to be okay. She knew what was going on, but there wasn't anything she could do to stop it. And for that, she blames herself. Taken By: Calm&Refreshed

Katherine Hansen- A.K.A, Kat. 14, one of the youngest. She's always laughing, always smiling, always cracking jokes. She's also timid, though. She just wants everything to be okay. Kat is always smiling, bringing a light to her and her brothers and sister. Taken By: LifeAsWeKnowIt

Tanner Hansen- 16, usually quiet. He likes to keep to himself, and Katherine is the one he's always looking out for. Kat and Tanner always had a strong bond, from the day Kat was born. Tanner usually is the smart one, always knowing what to do and when to do it. Taken By: Safire

Mason Hansen- 15, loud. He always speaks his mind and isn't afraid what people think of him. Mason is very unaware of whats going on around him, because he's always cracking jokes or making his siblings smile. Mason is the more joker of the group. Taken By:

The New-Comers

Halle Smith- 15 and always willing to try new things. Halle always is the first to do something, or eat this, or run over that. She's always hyper and loud, always ready to speak her mind. She could care LESS what the public has to think of her. Very colorful in language, too. RESERVED.

Ashlyn Smith- 16 and always smiling. She's quiet, but she's always happy. She respects life in itself, and doesn't like any form of bulling or war. She loves nature and everything about it, but she's also one to speak her mind if you can get her talking. Taken By:

Cole Smith- 14 and more of a skater. He likes being around people, and he likes interacting with the public. He's a flirt, and he likes to be around girls. But when he finds one girl he really likes, he goes to her her. Cole is a sweet boy though, one you can tell lots to. Taken By:

Ryan Smith- 18 and the father figure of the group. He's always making sure his younger siblings are okay, he rarely watches out for himself. He likes to do things like mess with mall cops, spray paint a car, but he's always honest. Taken By:

Kat pulled her suitcase behind her, not daring to look back. "How long now?" She sighed. Kat missed home. She missed the warm comfort of the fire place, the home-cooked meals mom used to make, the warm safety of her own room. At least she had her brothers and sisters. But life would be easier with a parent or two.

"Tanner? Could you walk any SLOWER?" She sighed. "We gotta get somewhere to sleep tonight, otherwise we'll be walking all night. And I swear, if I don't stop and lay down, I will shoot a bitch!" She yelled. She tripped over herself. "Owch." She mumbled, laughing at her own stupidity.

Re: [OOC] Walking this Road Alone

Can I reserve the spot of Ashlyn, please? :) I'll get a character sheet up right away.

Ah, nevermind. Not an active roleplay, I'm guessing? My mistake.

Re: [OOC] Walking this Road Alone


Damian Thrower/36/6ft 2

Damian was orphaned at a young age, and raised by his grandmother Josephine, who is largely responsible for his strict moral code, despite his criminal occupation. He attended Edmondson High School in West Baltimore, a few years behind Bunk Moreland. For more than ten years, Thrower has made his living holding up drug dealers, and staying alive "one day at a time." He is legendary around Baltimore for his characteristic shotgun, trench coat, facial scar, and whistling "The Farmer in the Dell", or "A Hunting We Will Go." Every time people see or hear him coming they run, even the children. He repeatedly demonstrates exceptional skill at surveillance and as a stick-up man and shooter, further contributing to his feared status as an efficient professional. He is also highly intelligent and cunning, consistently executing well-laid plans, anticipating moves, and outsmarting his adversaries. Once a month, he accompanies his elderly grandmother to church. He also has a brother, "No Heart" Anthony, who is incarcerated for a jewelry store robbery in the early '90s. Omar has a fondness for Newport cigarettes and Honey Nut Cheerios. On some nights he favours a .45.
