Description

Image
Image

Mitchel David Bauer, preferably Mitch, is the 18 year old bad boy. Out of sight, he smokes, rides a motorcycle and drinks until he passes out when he's with his mates, or out of sight from his parents. He frequently goes missing, and back in California, had girls falling over him left, right, and centre. He's never actually fallen in love, but he has fallen into bed several times. He hides this from his mother and father, as he knows that he'd get a lot more trouble than he would really want.

Image
Mitch is a young boy at heart. He's never loved, never really had that much attention. He's always been a bit of a joker, pulling pranks in class. This didn't impress his father. He was trying hard, but he never really had the concentration or focus to do well in school. Instead, he's taking a business class, for the sake of his father, and his pride. His hobbies include drinking, smoking, flirting and surfing at the beach... Well, in California, anyway.

Mitch has nothing to do with his family. He's always out with his mates, (smoking, drinking, or clubbing), or locked away in his room on his X Box or just listening to metal music REALLY REALLY LOUDLY. This annoys his family, much to his pleasure. He thinks his dad is too caught up in his work, and should spend some time with his kids, to keep them away from him, at least. He has vowed to himself that he will never be like his father. He thinks the twins are loud and rowdy, hypocritically. He thinks Ofe should get a life, and some friends, and stop following the twins and ratting out to their mother. He stays as far as possible from her, as he doesn't want his mother to find out about his rebellious streak. He loves his mother, and would do anything for her, but doesn't really take care of himself. He thinks Lily is crazy, and wish she would leave him alone, because he thinks her pretend world is stupid and she should grow up. She's nine, for god's sake! And most of all, he hates Nigel. He's everything Mitch should have been, and now his father just adores his little brother, in place of Mitch. He picked up his smoking habits and rebellious streak after Nigel was born. He doesn't think that he could ever forgive Nigel for that.

So begins...

Lily had given up asking where they were. Nobody was listening anyway.

She had long since given up shrieking at Ofe and Nigel to leave a space for Kylan and Ben on either side of her. They kept sliding over, on top of the invisible people that were her friends, and she had to keep pushing them away again, much to her annoyance. Apparently, it was to her father's annoyance, too, because he seemed pretty angry with them all. Lily slouched in her seat, talking to Kylan and Ben for the rest of the journey in a hushed voice.

They soon arrived on their new street. There was woods all around them, much to Lily's delight. It was just like her own little world! There were lots and lots of forests there, too! She was grinning wildly, humming to herself, when a boot flew through Kylan's head. "ABBY!" She screamed at her sister, in unison with her father. "YOU HIT KYLAN!!" She was trying her hardest not to cry when the other boot flew through where Ben was sat, and her sister was out of the window. She hated when her sisters or brothers hit or sat on her friends. What did she ever to to their friends, invisible or not?

The tyres of the car finally crunched onto the white pebble drive. Lily had her arms crossed over her chest, scowling at her knees. She could see her knees, as the skirt she wore came to just above her knees. It was a cream chiffon dress, with a brown leather belt wrapped just higher than her waist. She had knee high white socks on, too, with lace around the top. White flats adorned her feet and her ash blonde hair was combed and straight. She wore no jewellery, as she hated the things, and her sisters would probably break it anyway.

The car rolled to a stop, and Lily let Ben step out before she leaped out herself. Unfortunately, Mitch decided to walk straight through Ben, which caused another shouting fit at him. He didn't seem to care. Perhaps he didn't even hear her. Then again, nobody really did.

Ofe walked over to a fountain, which Lily immediately fell in love with. She smiled to herself, made a hand gesture to Ben and Kylan, and slipped off her socks and shoes, running over to the fountain. She sat on the side and dipper her feet in the water. It made her shiver slightly, but she splashed about happily anyway, not really noticing the cold after a while. When her sister retreated inside, so did she, grabbing her shoes, shouting words of encouragement to Ben and Kylan and running inside, dripping everywhere. She realized, much too late, that this would annoy her father immensely, probably, as they had spent five seconds in the house and already there was mess everywhere. Oh well. He'd just have to get used to it.

Lily dropped her shoes at the entrance of the foyer and looked around her. It looked just like a house she would imagine to be in Alice in Wonderland! That was her favorite story. She smiled to herself softly. Maybe she'd like it here. Just maybe.

Her brother had already stalked off upstairs, and so had the twins, until she heard a kerfuffle above her, on the staircase, which looked like it had been built from marble. Suddenly, Ofe's phone clattered down just above her, and Lily picked it up, looking at the phone she doesn't normally get to even see, let alone touch. Maybe she could actually talk to her?

"Ofe, your phone..." She muttered, as she picked her way up the stairs. She extended the phone out, not really expecting much of a reply, or at least if she did get a reply it would probably be nasty or something.

"So take your hand in mine
It's ours tonight
This is a rebel love song
"
Mitch's music blared through his headphones. His eyes were closed, his foot tapping to the beat of his music, which could be clearly heard throughout the van. He was pretending to be asleep. It was easier that way. He wouldn't be bothered. He hadn't opened his eyes the whole way, not through the fights, although he'd told Nigel to shut his gob several times along the journey.

The only time he heard much else was when Lily screamed at Abby. He had shut his eyes tight in frustration and opened his eyes. There was a house there. He guessed that was his new home. Great. In the middle of the woods... Then again, it might not be so bad... He thought to himself. I could smoke pretty easily in the trees, and hide a bike there, too... He sighed to himself, one of frustration and almost pleasure.

Another sigh escaped his lips as Leigh, the annoying brat, actually climbed out over him, and then, just as he was sliding out, slammed the door in his face. He closed his eyes, trying to hold in the anger, but couldn't manage it. "LEIGH!" He roared, opening the door of the car and slamming it, hard. "I will put you six feet underground if you ever do that again!" He yelled, his hands balling into fists. He really needed a cigarette. Sighing, and seeing that the twins had now opened the door, he headed inside, not even stopping to look at his surroundings as he climbed up the marble steps and walked to the end of the corridor, at the back of the house. "This one's mine." He muttered, slamming the door. They'd know if they walked in on him. He didn't expect them to, anyway.

He slammed the door, and opened the window, wide. The ledge seemed comfortable enough, so he sat on it, and fished in his pockets for a cigarette and lighter. He was sure he wouldn't be caught. They'd sort out everyone else first. He lit the cigarette and took a drag of it. This was not going not be easy.

"Abby! Be careful with your surroundings, apologize to Lily for hitting her friends and ask for permission before you take anything!" Faith's yell at her daughter was almost immediately followed by an annoyed "Aand she's gone without listening to me."

Faith forgot about this when she saw Nigel coming out of the van, holding the books he was reading during the trip. He was obviously down.
"Nigel, what's wrong?" The mother asked him.
"Nobody liked the facts I gave..." He replied with sadness in his tone.
"I liked them! Your father liked them!" Faith tried to cheer him up.
"But that's circa 29% of the visible humans in the van!"
"Aw, sweety..." Faith started stroking his son's blond hair. "If you love telling facts, just do it and don't let anyone take this away from you." She smiled at him.
"Thanks, mom..." Nigel muttered and entered the house.

Faith wrapped her arm around her husband's waist.
"This is it, Demitri... new home... new life... new chance to rebuild our relationships... Maybe we can finally become a happy and peaceful family... Oh, FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!" Faith went inside after she heard Ofelian's yelling.
"Won't you leave each other's throats already? Leigh! What did you do to Ofelian this time?"
Faith hated yelling at her children. She was heartbroken every time she did that, but sometimes she had to. She saw Lily giving Ofelian the phone. Knowing their relationship, she took it in order to prevent another conflict and extended her arm to the 13-year-old girl, waiting for her to take it.
"You!" Faith turned to Ofe. "Take your phone and explain what happened."

Demitri

He walked in with his wife, patting Nigel's head. "Hey, put it this way, at least I never have to worry about you making stupid decisions," he offered, giving him an encouraging pat on the back to send him on his way. Glancing to Faith, he nodded slightly. "I should hope so," he murmered, not particularly meaning it. The only reason he'd wanted to move was for his work. If the family got its 'bonding' done, sure, plus for the happy wife. He didn't particularly care about his children aside from Nigel.
He picked up his box and headed up the stairs. Across from him were the stairs to Abby's room, so he went in the opposite direction. The house had four balconies, one on each corner. It seems his eldest had occupied to on one side of the house, so he and his wife could take the other front room. Walking up the other short set of stairs, he pushed the box into that room. He paused upon coming down to glance out the window. He had to admit, it really was lovely here. Walking down the stairs, he checked where the realtor had said there would be a study. Pleased that it was large, with ornate French doors, he took his office box and pushed it in there.


Abby

Stalking back down the stairs to find the last of her things, she grabbed the phone off Lily and threw it square at Ofe's chest. "Stop being such a whining baby," she scowled, stuffing her hands in her pockets. "Lily, I have some old skirts I don't wear. They're outside my bedroom door if you want 'em." Then she glanced back over her shoulder at Ofelian. "And don't even think of touching them, you dork princess."
Trodding down to gather up her last few bags and her Ouija board, she dragged them back up the stairs and slid them over to her closet. "Mitty," she called, seeing the cat was no longer in the room. She ducked out of her room past her twin's and checked each room following. "Mitty?" she called softly into each. She paused at her brother's room and opened the door. She saw him at the balcony. "You're going to die if you keep smoking dummy," she called before skipping out. The kitchen was to her left, and to her right was a railed balcony overlooking the foyer. "Hi mom!" she called from it, waving. "I promise I won't complain about moving again, this house is radical!"
She looked down to see her twin. "Leigh-Leigh, help me find Mitty, she dissapeared!" she called. She then walked out of sight again. There was a door to the other hall which matched the one outside her bedroom, at the end of which her parents' room was situated. When Leigh joined her, she turned to a dark flight of stairs leading up. Grinning, she made her way up them, lifting her skirt bottom. The stairs groaned beneath them, but Abby could care less. Up on the next floor was an open space plus four rooms on the back wall. She presumed that this was the larger dining room, or a ballroom of some sort. Boring.
She walked out into it before something dagled in her face. Looking up she saw that it was a pull cord for an attic door. "Oh sweet," she grinned, tugging it. The old stairs folded out in front of them, falling from the hatch door. Making her way up it, she giggled. "This is my new favourite room in the house," she muttered to her sister. Standing and brushing her skirt off, she glanced around the attic. It was cluttered, but huge. Walking over to one of the old trunks, she lifted the lid with considerable effort. "Ughn!" she grunted when it finally opened. "Whoa, old." Inside were news articles from whenever.



Collette Grace

She sat in the corner of one of the rooms upstairs. She turned at the sound of people walking up the stairs, and stuck her head through the wall. "Hmph, so there are people here," she muttered to herself. Listening for Janica, she tilted her head side to side. "Groovy, I can make friends."
She followed them up the stairs, resting her elbows on the floor, watching them. "Yo, wassup?" she called, making Abby jump and turn. "Welcome to the 'hood." She grinned and turned over so that she was resting her head on the wood. "Don't go digging through people's stuff. It's rude you know."
Abby scowled. "What are you doing here? Get out of our house!" she cried, walking forward. Grace sat up, muttering to herself, walking down the steps.
"Alright, but I'll see you cool cats later."

Leigh Marshe Bauer

Leigh groaned. "Ugh, I didn't do anything," she told her Mother, giggling softly at Abby's attack on Ofe. "She's always making things about herself." She ignored whatever happened next and manage to wonder back to her room, trailing her hand along the wall along the way. She yawned softly, still tired form the trip over. She paused, turning her head to look at her twin. "Yeah, give me a minute!" she called, walking into their room and attempting to shoo Red back outside before Father caught her sniffing out the rooms. She dropped her things into her room and picked out chargers, immediately putting her iPod and phone on charge, just in case she'd miss any messages from their friends. She then turned, pulling off her shoes and socks and ran out of the room. She ran up the stairs, easily catching up with her twin. "When did you last see her?" she asked, following Abby up the next flight of stairs. "I swear, if we have a ballroom, that would be so cool!" Leigh chirped. "We could do so much in the- What's that? again, this girl was easily distracted, watching curiously as her twin pulled open the attic stairs.

Scrambling after Abby, Leigh rubbed her eyes, pulling herself into the attic and sitting cross legged. She hardly jumped, but instead shivered, turning slightly to get a better look at Colette. "Who the hell are you?" she asked, more interested in what the girl had meant. She shook her head, crawling over to another box. "Heck, what if these are hers?" she asked, jumping back when something moved from behind it.


Ofelian Harp Bauer

Ofelian squeaked, catching the small devise before it hit the floor again. She then pointed to Leigh, "She pushed me and she didn't apologise for it." she declared. "I'm always the victim to their tyranny! They almost never pick on the others." she growled, picking up her things and storming off up the stairs. She was muttering under her breath as she walking and turned away from the twin's room, deciding that she wanted a room that was no where near theirs. She wandered for a bit before stopping at an old doorway, one that she did not realise was next to Mother and Father's room. She smiled to herself and pushed open the large door. She then set her items on the bed, flopping down onto the floor, since there was no mattress just yet.


Janica Alexandra

Janica was about to jump down through the hole but was forced to stop, hearing the attic door open. Squeaking, she ducked behind a large box, curling up into a tight ball, the small teddy in her hands. She let her hair fall in her face, after all, if she couldn't see them, then they couldn't see her, right? She blinked, lifting her head the slightest so that she could see Colette. No good, they weren't friendly. Now she had to get out. Janica whimpered again, jumping up and running into the hole, accidentally dropping the teddy bear in her haste.

With the phone in her hands, Lily didn't realize her mother had come up the stairs until she took the phone from her. She flinched, and backed up against the banister, out of harm's way, when Abby came over and flung it at Ofe. She bit her lip, trying not to laugh. That would just annoy Ofelian even more. However, when Abby mentioned the old skirts outside her room, Lily's mouth split open into a grin. "Thank you, Abby!" She squeaked, bright and chipper again. She hurried past her sister and mother without another word, and up to the twins' room.

As promised, there were some skirts there. Gathering them up in her arms, Lily struggled to see. "Give me some help, please." She told Kylan and Ben, and wandered off down the corridor. She found a bedroom, one just down the corridor from her parents, and Ofe, and decided that it would be hers. She stretched out a small hand and opened the bedroom, dropped the pile of skirts in the corner and huffed a sigh of relief. She decided she wanted to say thank you to Abby.

Lily exited the room, and walked over to where her sisters should be. However, they weren't in the room. Instead, Lily found them exploring the attic, but didn't want to disturb them. They were exploring. So Lily waited at the bottom of the stairs. Several shouts later, and suddenly a young lady walked down the steps. She spoke funny. So she told her. "You speak funny, like the people on TV." She told her happily. "That's super duper cool."

"Were Abby and Leigh mean to you?" She continued. It was the first person she really could talk to without being sent away from, like her sisters and Mitch. At least Nigel would listen to her - if he wasn't stuck in a book like always. "Don't worry, we're not all like that." She grinned up at the girl, smiling. "Would you like to play something? Or do something fun?" She asked the girl. "I'm Lily, by the way. Lily Mae Bauer."



Image

Mitch was enjoying his solitude. He sat on the window ledge, just taking his time with the smoldering cigarette in his hand, taking drags of it in secret. He had opened his door a crack, and seen that his parents had claimed the bedroom opposite. It was far enough away. Good. He wasn't going to get caught.

Just at that second, the door opened. It was Abby. Of course. She made a snide comment, and he returned a; "And so are you if you keep jumping out of car windows." Before she closed the door again. Sighing, he stubbed the cigarette out and slid it under the bed. He decided he'd go and get his things from the car.

It wasn't a long journey. The box with his favorite things in was just one box, so he took it and hurried up the stairs again. Immediately, he plugged in his CD player, shoved in a Black Veil Brides CD and turned up the music - way, WAY, too loud.

Demitri

Returning to the main foyer, he glanced up the stairs. What were those damn children getting up to? "Abigail, Leigh, Lily, Ofelian, Nigel and Mitchell, I want all of you downstairs, now!" he cried. "There are boxes outside yet to be unpacked, and since none of you seem exceptionally willing, I want all of you to help!"
He turned to Faith, patting her shoulder. "I wish you would relax. It's not healthy to constantly stress." He kissed her on the cheek, before going off to sort out his office. There was already a huge mahogany desk by one window. It seems the house still had all of its old furnashings. There were two large brown leather couches sitting across from each other in the middle of the room, and a small coffee table. Leaving that as it was, he went into the room joined to this one and began unpacking his books, placing them on the shelves.



Abby

She shrugged at her twin, going through the news articles. "I doubt it, no one lives here, remember? Well, we do now." She then heard her father calling out. Scowling, she walked to the steps, glancing down. Lily was talking to someone. She couldn't see anyone, so she presumed it was one of her imaginary friends. "Hey, short-stuff," she hissed. "I'm closing this okay? Don't tell Pa we're up here and I promise to take you exploring later." She gave her a short flash of a grin, before pulling up the old wooden steps. "Now." She turned back to the old trunks. Walking over to another old case, she pulled it open. Her jaw dropped at what she saw. Old jewellery lined the bottom of the box, silver, gold, diamonds, rubies. "Leigh!" she called, ushering her sister over. "This stuff looks old as. Lets take it. It probably belongs to the people who used to live here and they forgot." Glancing around, she noted an old tote bag. Walking to it, she picked it up and stuffed it with the jewellery. She paused seeing a black rose pendant, etched from what may have been obsidian. Grinning, she handed it to her twin. "You keep this one. It suits you." She then stuffed the last of it away, before turning on her heel to look for more stuff to keep.
She noted a bunch of old looking dresses. One seemed to be a nun's habit. "Haha, we should totally creep out the others with this thing. I still have my special effects makeup, we could totally scare Ofe and Lily and Nigel." She stuffed the black dress and cap thing into the bag before slipping down the stairs. "Let's put it in our rooms and see what else we can nick."



Colette Grace

She smiled down at the little girl. "Howdy babe," she giggled at Lily, offering her hand. "I'm Colette Anne Grace, but call me Grace, m'kay?" She walked down the stairs to the second floor with her, passing the kitchen and heading past the bedrooms to walk downstairs. "Sure, let's do something fun. I wanna play hide and seek, that sound cool to you?"
She walked to beside the marble stairs, to where the wood met the stone. She ran her pale hand along until she found what she was looking for; a small notch hole. She pressed against the wood, and a small square panel moved in as Grace slid it aside. Groping the wall for a moment, she found the lightswitch to reveal steps down into an old basement. "All my old toys are down there, they can play too." She walked down, turning back to look at her new friend. "C'Mon chicky, don't be afraid. I'm your friend now, I won't hurt you. Promise." She raised her hand for the girl to take.

Lily took Grace's hand gently, smiling at her new-found friend. She was glad, she was being talked to, finally! She listened to her sister talking, smiling up at her because she had a new friend. She didn't seem to see Grace. Frowning, she told her; "Alright, but don't be rude to Grace. At least say hi." They walked down the stairs to the second floor, passing the kitchen and the bedrooms, including her room, which had the door open. She stared at it, wondering if she should close it, but looked away again when Grace carried on walking. She turned away and smiled. "Hide and seek?" She repeated after Grace said it. "That sounds fun." But she wasn't so comfortable when she was led to where the marble stairs met wood, and Grace found a lightswitch to a basement. Cold air whooshed up, and made her shiver slightly, and she bit her lip, slightly cautious of what was down there.

However, Lily believed Grace, and took a few tentative steps down the stairs. Shaking like a little leaf, Lily took Grace's hand and hurried to her side. "What kind of toys?" She asked in a quiet voice. Her heart beat fast, she was a little scared, but she believed Grace. She just felt... Well, uncomfortable. Then she remembered her father's voice calling for her. "My dad..." She looked back up the stairs, and back at Grace. She wanted to play, but her father would get angry if she didn't obey... She bit her lips and shifted her weight from foot to foot, confused about what to do.



Image

Mitchel almost didn't hear his father, if he hadn't been switching the CD at the time he was called. Sighing heavily, he switched the CD to some dubstep, as he was bored, and slipped out of the room once he did so. It would annoy his parents, and perhaps even Abby and Leigh. That'd be good. He thudded down the stairs noisily, as per usual.

"Mom, did you need any help?" He asked, as he reached her. "I heard Dad calling." He pulled his mother into a hug, quickly but affectionately, and let go, so she hopefully couldn't smell the cigarette smoke on his breath, on his clothes. He smiled at her quickly. "If not, I'll head back up to my room and get my things ready..." He hinted. He wanted some alone time... Like always.

"ABBIGAIL RENEE BAUER!" Faith yelled. "STOP BEING RUDE TO YOUR SISTER!"

In many cases when a parent calls you by your full name, it would be hard not to be petrified by fear. Not in Faith's case - it's a rarity for her to go any further than yelling.

Faith calmed down when Demitri took the roblem in his hands. Oh, how much easier it would have been if he wasn't that consumed by work. The mother giggled like a schoolgirl with a crush when her husband kissed her cheek - it was a rarity for her seeing him displaying an act of affection. Knowing that she wouldn't see this from him any time soon, especially when he went to the office, her smile faded away.

"Hey, Mitch!" Faith's smile came back, when her eldest son greeted her with a hug. "We should unpack the boxes now. I hope everyone will participate!" She raised her voice a little at her last sentence.

Not saying anything, Nigel slowly walked to the mother, probably to inform her that he would help. His pupils shrunk when his sight met his brother's eyes. Nigel gave up on the vocal statement about his help and quickly walked outside.

Demitri

He came back out of his office, giving a nod to Mitchell and Nigel. "It would seem the two of you are the only ones doing as you're told. Guess that means you choose dinner tonight," he told them, walking out to unload the boxes from the truck. He walked back in the front door, looking up when he heard voices. He had to stare around for a moment before he saw the dark hole in the wall by the front door. Walking over to it, side stepping a few boxes, he leaned down it to see Lily. "What are you doing down there? Lily, I asked for help, I expect it given." He ushered her up the stairs, flicking off the light.
He called Faith, pointing Lily out the door to gather the last few boxes labelled 'kitchen'. "And where are your sisters?" he asked. Wrapping an arm around Faith's shoulders, he gestured to the stairs. "It would appear that we have a basement. I guess we could turn it into a pool room, put down a few couches, I don't know." He glanced at his wife, waiting for her thoughts.


Abby

She scrambled down the stairs and passed the kitchen banister. She looked down to see her parents looking into a basement. "Wicked," she muttered to herself, jumping when the cat leaped out at her from behind the doorway to the kitchen. "Oh, Mitty!" she cried. "You little shit, you scared me." She clasped a hand over her mouth when she realised she'd said it out loud. Glancing down, she noted that her father was glaring at her. "Coming," she moaned, quickly dumping the tote behind her bedroom door and closing it. She then skipped down the marble stairs, out passed her parents.
She grabbed one of the few remaining boxes and lugged it up to the kitchen. She lifted it towards the table, looking up to see her twin. "Hey," she murmured, dumping it down. She froze when she heard something shatter. "Aw, crap," she hissed, lifting the flaps of carboard to see she'd cracked and shattered their mother's best china plates. She picked it up again, sliding it over to the massive old pantry door. "Leg it," she whispered, before sprinting to her room. She closed the door, sighing deeply. "My bad."
"Yeah your bad," a voice muttered. She looked up to see that weird girl lying across the wooden beam on her canopy bed. "Your mom's not gonna be chill when she finds out you did it."
"Get out of my house!" she cried.
The raven haired girl shrugged, rolling over and clinging to the banister like a monkey. "Eh, it's not really your house, is it? It was never really a house. Or, I s'pose it is now they ripped down the old building."
Abby frowned, standing. "What're you talking about?" she asked, walking over.
"Didn't you read the papers? This whole block of land used to be the Waltham Asylum, or whatever cheery name they came up with. Check it. This place was once a loony-bin. Not this building, but this land. That fountain outside was. And it's said that the people who died in the asylum haunt this place. Whooo~," she giggled, waving her fingers in Abby's face.
The teen rolled her eyes in response, climbing up to the banister to sit with her. "What's your name anyway? And how do you keep getting in here?"
"I'm Colette, but call me Colls. I have a... gift for sneakin' 'round, I guess you could say."
Abby grinned. "You're creepy, I dig that. So where do you live?" Colette shrugged, righting herself again.
She jumped off the banister, to the floor. Abby was surprised at how little noise she made. "Oh, you know. Around. Nearby."
Abby nodded. "Rad. We should hang out." Colette grinned and nodded, exiting out the door. Almost as soon as it closed, Demitri walked in.
"Abigail, get down from there!"
"Father, must I?" she ased, mocking his tone as she slid down. "What do you want?"
He glared, gesturing out the door. "Dinner. The boys made their decision, so we're having what they want."
She groaned. "It's probably something slimy and gross like pizza." Demitri rolled his eyes and followed her down the stairs, calliing out to Ofelian and Leigh at the same time.

Leigh Marshe Bauer

Leigh sneezed, rubbing her eyes after she did so. Huffing, she shook her head and pushed some of the boxes into the back and picking up a lock and key. she grinned to herself, starting down the stairs after her sister and closing it. Placing the lock through the hole, she clicked it closed and pocketed the skeleton key, rubbing the back of her neck. Whistling softly, she didn't even hear her father call. Sticking to the top floor, Leigh decided to do some more exploring and finding herself in one of the spare rooms. She glanced around, there seemed to be nothing but covered furniture. "I like this room," she whispered to herself, flopping down on the dusty white sheet and putting her feet up on the table. It really shouldn't matter, after all, they were covered.

After a few moments, Leigh, yawned, feeling bored. she stood and dusted herself off, walking out of the room and closing the door behind her. "Welp, that was fun. At least in this house you can be by yourself," she murmured to herself, starting down the stairs, accidentally bumping into her sister... Again. "Someone's not in a good mood," Leigh murmured, continuing on her way down the stairs.


Ofelian Harp Bauer

Hearing Father call, Ofelian sighed and stood, looking around the room. "This... Is going to suck," she muttered, walking out and following her directions to the car. Picking up one of the boxes, she started into the house, jumping when the cardboard fell apart in her hands. She let out a long stream of curse words, not even caring if anyone was around. She shook her head, picking up the items and starting up the stairs, pushing her sister back when they bumped into each other, muttering under her breath. "Watch where you're walking."

"I don't know... " Faith responded, smiling "Maybe we should put something the kids would like. We might put a piano there. Lily might want to learn it, she needs to put her creativity somewhere. This is a little close to your office, however... If the music gets on the way of your job, we might still have the pool table. I hope the kids would start getting along and play together..."

Faith was thinking of discussing this idea with the whole family. However, she knew there would be a lot of arguing about this. Still, her mind wouldn't agree with the thought not to ask the children.

"Let's not rush. Let's deal with the basics first - the living room, the kitchen, the bedrooms, the bathrooms... When it comes to the rest - we might sort it out later." The wife said. "Hey, do you want to see if everyone are handling the boxes? They might need our help."

Nigel didn't know which box to pick. Most of them seemed too heavy, or had too fragile items inside. He might ask for help, but the only family members he got along with were Faith, Demitri, Lily and the pets. None of them were in front of the house yet, also getting help from the pets would be impossible. What would he do? He was too afraid to ask someone else for help.

"But... Daddy - " She was cut off as she was ushered out of the basement. "But - Grace - she's down there!" She protested before she could stop herself. She would probably get punished now. Her father always hated it when she talked about her friends.

But Grace... she was REAL.

Lily sighed again, shuffling forwards to grab a small box. She peered inside it, sighing when all she saw was the silver of knives, forks and spoons. She picked it up easily, and wandered into the kitchen to put them all away. However, when she got there, all she saw was a box full of their mother's broken china plates. She sighed, and put them away, deciding not to mention the plates. She might get in more trouble if she did. She shuffled out again afterwards.

Lily decided that she wanted to explore on her own. Maybe... Maybe where Abby and Leigh were earlier?

She hurried up the stairs, and jumped for the attic. On the third try she managed to grab the string that hid the attic away, and pulled it down. It almost came down on her head, but she jumped out of the way. It made a little thud as it hit the floor. Lily waited, holding her breath, until she thought it was clear, before clambering up the steps.

"Woah." She muttered as she took in the surroundings. There were rows and rows of boxes. She stumbled through them all, having a peek into them all, but not trying to be nosy. She didn't really see anything she recognized. She sneezed a little at the disturbed dust. Then she spotted a small hole in the wall. "What's through there, I wonder?" She asked herself. Then, carefully, picking up her feet, but placing them one in front of the other, like walking on a tightrope. She reached the hole, and slipped through quite easily. And there, in front of her, there was a small teddy bear. Confused, she walked over and picked it up gingerly. She held it gently in her hands, and examined the small thing very gently. She stroked a fingertip over it's missing ear, and over it's torn tutu. "Who do you belong to, then?" Her voice rang out in the attic. "I'll look after you, I will." She promised the small bear, sitting down on the wooden beams of the attic, amidst the dust, examining and stroking the soft bear.

Mitchel smiled at his mother again, and picked up a box full of his things. He hoisted them into his arms, and passed his brother. He scowled at him. "You pick dinner, I don't care." He sighed, and snapped, at the same time. In truth... Mitch was jealous of Nigel. He wished that he was in Nigel's position - liked by both his parents. He sighed to himself and headed up to his room. His music was still playing loudly. Apparently nobody had noticed yet. He smiled to himself and began placing things around the room, tacking up posters, placing a mattress on the bed (Once he found one, of course) and then making his bed, flopping down on it, just sighing to himself as he listened to the way-too-loud music and stared up at the ceiling.

Abby
Glaring at her father, she returned to the house, flicking through the photos. She started, though, seeing one. "It's that Colette girl," she muttered to herself. Glancing out the door, she frowned. There was no one left in the yard, how did...? Shaking her head, she wandered back up to her room, flopping down on the bay window seat. She smiled when Mitty clambered up into the cushion beside her and curled up. She turned her back and looked out the window into the darkness of the forest across from her.


Colette Grace

Giggling as Lily was told to go up the stairs, she made herself appear at the attic. "Nica," she whispered. "I have someone who can fix your bear," she grinned. Crawling to the attic hatch, she pushed her hand through the wood, curled it and ripped off the lock. Following her hand through, she tossed the lock out the open window and grinned. "Those girls are going to be mad, but that'll just make this more fun right?" She waved to her friend and headed down the steps, remaining see through. Lily passed through her and she smiled.
She heard music blaring from the hall, and walked towards it. It wasn't like anything she'd ever heard, seeing as she was used to stuff like Queen or Bon Jovi. OPening the door, she saw a boy. Wandering into the room, she glanced about. Interesting. Looking back to the boy she giggled and reappeared. "'Sup?" she asked, tilting her head to the side. "That's some weird music your playing there bub."
