J A N G N A O M I, H O T A R U
Let's go back to where there was such thing as an innocent little girl, Naomi. Back then, she never had time for friends or playing outdoors by her lonesome, she was what we would call a "Prodigy in training". Her parents were always pestering her to learn the piano, of course, than never lasted long because she had no heart for it, no love, or even a liking. This child's innocent was short lived, ending quite quickly at the age of nine.

From abuse of belts and rulers, to whips and chains. She was adopted into a different family, away from her brother Woo. She wasn't taught her Ps and Qs, or how to count or to take the bus home from school. There wasn't any schooling, unless you'd consider the constant training with guns, gases and stilettos homework. Instead of using brainwork for solving problems, it was seduce and kill that seemed to resolve the problem quickly. Instead of a prodigy, she was the secret weapon.

The child was formed into a beautiful, attractive assassin. Around the age of fourteen, she had already sought and conquered several people, killing them without any sign of life. Age sixteen, she bought herself a special mark. A tattoo that would represent her middle name, Hotaru, which meant Firefly. One of the three fireflies is painted red, for how she stood out like some folks call, a sore thumb. Joe Hong, the man who had adopted her, he quite enjoyed calling her, his little Firefly.

However, let's get passed the past, and to just a few years ago, when she first stepped foot in Virginia. Naomi found her brother after some time, and tried to develop a special relationship, while still working as an assassin. While there, she was assigned to work along side the country folk, specifically a country man, a cowboy. Trent McGarden. Now this Korean only had the idea of harmless flirting, nothing else. But the flirting lead to drinks and one thing lead to another, and that thing lead to falling in love.

Alike most of the other occupants in Virginia, she faced a bit of challenges. One including kidnapping of her person. She was taken by a man, Matt Oliver, one who called himself a skilled thief, when he was really just an amateur. He kept Naomi for herself, had advanced and well, Naomi was hurt rather badly. Unfortunately, after said event, her brother thought that time away from Virginia was best, and sent her home. After some time, elder woman had found out about Naomi's mishap and the result of it all. A pregnancy.

There was a law against it, for she was unmarried and the father was not present. Naomi was sedated, kept from waking up as they handled the result, solving the problem right away. Now, a broken heart and a scar was the result of her mishaps.

Currently, Naomi is back in Virginia, in hopes to start a new... but to reignite an old flame. Trent. Oh how she missed him..








ImageImage

S C A R S
There are minor scars along Naomi's body. A few behind the shoulder, flesh wounds from a few assignments that were found more difficult than easy. Some scarred tissues from punishments growing up. There is a small scar on the inside of her thigh from a blade.

Those are just minor.

Two scars she is not happy about, two scars that she'd try her hardest to hide. One; the scar on her back. It was from the repetitive lashing from failing to complete an assignment and speaking her mind. And then two; the scar of surgery. It would have been unnoticed if the pregnancy was noticed right away. However, the sense of movement was alarming. It had to be taken care of, and the scar is a horrible, terrible memory of it. Its on her lower abdomen, stretching down past her waist line. The scar she is most regretful of, fearful of. It was not her choice.


F E A R S
A fear of snakes, for they were a part of the punishing process. A fear of losing loved ones, never finding the love she most desires. Waking up every night, alone, for the rest of her life. The fear of love, children. The fear of the past catching up with her for the fourth time in her life. The fear of rejection.

T A L E N T S
Quite handy with a gun. Flexible for survival. She is trained as an assassin, she can fight rather well, frightenly so. She has the talent of using another's weight against themselves. She is a silent killer. Knives are a preferred specialty. Cooking; unbelievable cook.

  • Age :: Twenty Seven
  • Chocolate, sweets
  • American Food
  • Tall, slender


P E R S O N A L I T Y

Naomi can be found flirty, sweet, kind, dark, and a bit with an attitude. However, lately, she's found shy, even with her own body. She's also found to be adorable from time to time. Trust that she's stubborn, sometimes not understanding the meaning of no. She's unpredictable, likes to laugh and enjoy herself. However, times do change, and she may have grown a bit more careful.

A P P E A R A N C E

Naomi has long chocolate brown hair that matches her dark chocolate eyes. Her complexion is a lot paler than what is considered normal, yet her skin seems to be a creamer color. Her lips are soft, a pale shade of pink. At the back of her neck, to her right shoulder is three fireflies tattooed to her skin. One is the color of red, the other are golden shades of color. At her lower back, near the hip bone is a long, thin scar, a battle wound she prefers to call it. She’s tall, about 5’8, with a slender and flexible form.

I know people change... but you can't forget those you love.

So begins...

I walk the footsteps of an American, now... good bye village life.

Naomi, what once was residing in Virginia, had spent a few good years in the village, back home. It wasn't her choice to go, but her brothers. Awhile ago, Naomi spent her days hunting down human beings, killing them, and she was getting paid for it all.

During said hunt, Naomi was assigned to work along side an American, someone she distrusted and despised with all of her existence, however, she still fell in love with him. It was spending time with Trent McGarden, Naomi missed the most, and his touch, his kisses, his existence. While visiting a friend of his, Naomi was kidnapped and received a bit of a beating and abuse. Naomi got pregnant that night.

She didn't know she had a life inside her, until one of the villager's pointed out that she was an unmarried female, who was about to have a baby. It was the law that Naomi was not allowed to give birth, and Naomi had no choice. While she was sleeping, she was drugged, dragged, and the infant was taken care of, without the proper surgery. She had a bit of a scar to show the result, and a damaged heart, mind and soul.

At first, the idea of going away seemed like the perfect plan to regain composure, and help her resurface to the real world, but it only caused her further pain. Finally, after a few years, Naomi knew she had to return to the place she truly felt real happiness. Virginia. She wrote to her brother, telling him she was going to return, that it was time. She told him about the child, or what could of have been, and told him that she felt immense pain and what not. It was her brother that she told her true feelings too. He new she was broken, shattered. He would know the true face behind the mask. She wrote to Trent too, as much as she could without telling him of her troubles. She wrote about happy things, fishing, dancing, music... anything to keep him from worrying.

It was a long travel; boat, plane, truck. It was all worth it when she stepped out of the car and was greeted by the country side.
The truck was beat up, dented but it was reliable. She wore cut off shorts to show off her slender figure, a loose fitted shirt, boots. She wasn't dressed like the city, like she used to. Her hair was longer again, soft, and blew gently in the breeze. She wasn't eating much these days, looked a little thinner but she was sure Virginia was going to change that. She parked a bit down the road from the bar, having hardly any trouble hearing about it. It was the talk of the town and she certainly didn't want to make herself known right away.

Naomi took a deep breath and straightened her clothing. It didn't look as if she was from a different realm, she looked as if shed fit in, cept, she was Asian, but that was understandable.

The back of a man caused Naomi to stop her walk towards the front doors. He carried a new toy, so it seemed, it barely had a scratch on it. She shook her head and leaned against one of trees. She knew she had to give herself some time to get used to the crowd. Standing back the way she did, she wasn't sure if it was a dumb idea, or a wise decision. Even then, she headed on over to the door, sliding herself out from behind Walker, who already smelled of strong alcohol.

There they were. Enna, Sammy, Kaiden, Forrest, Maggie. They all stood about the counter and Naomi couldn't help but plop down at a table, away from the crowd. She had to get used to the smell.
----

"Tw-" Enna stopped. She had to think about it. Did she really want to say it and risk a Forrest Glare or an elbow from Samuel Pate? She giggled quietly and shook her head. "He fits both descriptions pretty damn well." She muttered angrily. He just stood there, his eyes sweeping around the room. Enna didn't notice Naomi, the girl was dressed like she was anyway, her attention on her boyfriend's elbow near her legs. She finished her drink up quickly, cleared her throat and glanced back at Maggie.

"Hand me one of those beers, will ya? I think I'll make him fit right at home." Enna grabbed one of the beers and pressed it up against the counter. She slammed her hand into it hard, the cap popping off easily and landing on the floor. She kicked it up against the counter, turned on her heel and stepped away from the group, quickly, to keep from any protests.

She headed on over to Walker and stopped a few good feet in front of him. She was shorter than he was, but she didn't care. She looked him dead in the eyes. "How about you trade me?" She asked. "This here beer for that weapon you got there. I'll put it in the back and you can get it as soon as you leave. What do ya say?" She asked, danging the bottle by the neck. "Cold, fresh, and I opened it myself."

He looked down at her. His brown eyebrows lifted curiously. "Well, that ain't such a bad idea." He said, resting his rifle up against his shoulder. "Arent you looking mighty pretty tonight, Miss Enna?"

"Mm, let's just focus on the trade, alright?" She asked. "Beer for the gun, Walker." Enna's voice was stern, but soft at the same time. She didn't want any fights. The man stepped forward and his hand found her waist immediately. He pulled her, almost right off her feet. She shook her head. One word, and the guys would be on over. She knew this well enough. She cleared her throat and lifted her knee up and into his groin. He hunched over immediately, sputtering from the inpact.

"Let's try this again. You take this here beer." She pried the rifle from his hand and slipped the beer into his open grasp. "And Ill keep a good eye on the gun, alright buddy?"

"Oh c'mon now, Enna." He coughed, standing up as she took a step back. "Just wanted a little kiss."


"Well you can kiss my ass, cause these lips? Already taken." She headed back to the counter, dropped the gun on top and her eyes looked into Maggie's. She gave a helpless shrug.

"Done and handled."

[[Oh I know. Sorry but I have work today and I wont be back for like five hours.. then I can roleplay some afterwards. Work is kicking my ass.]]

She runs wild with the horses...

Enna just rolled her eyes. Kaiden always had a thing for telling Maggie and Forrest they couldn't do something. It was almost as if he had no idea who they were. Sure he had some memory loss, but she was sure that even with memory loss, one would still know how stubborn the Johnson's were. Enna wasn't even blood related and she was just as bad as they were. She couldn't help but shake her head and return to her stop on the counter, her foot resting between Sammy's knees as she looked down at her boyfriend. And it happened again.

There was just moments where Enna would lose herself. She'd forget the world and get lost in his eyes. They were her favorite color, and because they belonged to him, she loved it even more. It was the way he looked, the way he connected with her, their history, every day she just fell in love with him more. She was a lucky girl, and she would admit that. There was no use in denying it. Sadly, she just wished Maggie had it again. There was Woo. She knew he'd return and the two of them would just mesh well again, but it was the time up until that point, she hated Maggie being alone. Hell, she hated Forrest being alone but in a way, he was making do. Sure, Jacob was keeping him company and Kaiden wasn't too far away... but, sometimes she just felt...bad for them. No pity, just, uneasy for her family.

The corner's of Enna's lips perked up slightly and her hand raised to Sammy's face. She traced his jawline for a moment before sliding her empty glass across the counter. She needed a refill and she knew either Maggie or Forrest would fill it up. She'd do it herself but, she truly just didn't feel like moving, she was perfectly content to where she sat. She couldn't help the way he made her heart race or the air choke up inside her throat. That man was hers.

"Ah." She said abruptly, shaking her head. She looked at Jacob and gave him a stern look. "Now I don't go around making comments like that, you best keep them to yerself Jake or I'll spray you down with a hose, so help me." She warned.
Enna knew she was a tough girl, but there are times where she just made threats that...were a bit out there. But that didn't mean she wasn't going to follow through. That was Enna. She would always follow through.

Walker had taken his beer, for the time being and plopped himself down at a table near where Naomi sat. The Korean just ket her eyes fixed on her lap as she lifted her feet up and propped them onto the surface. The man took a long swig from his beer and kept his eyes on Enna, who still stayed with her family and friends.

Sure, he was a bit upset by the way Enna kneed him, and he knew a lady should act like a lady. But at the moment, he just didn't care, yet.

Enna's attention was fixated on Sammy Pate. Her foot rested against his knee and her lips held a smile. She listened to Kaiden's lecturing, not on her, but on Maggie and Forrest. She didn't want to intrude, or step in but she certainly wanted to. She just kept her silence though, as her eyes fixated on Sammy's. "An hour or so and we can go home?" She murmured. She took a drink from her glass. Enna had a busy day tomorrow. A new horse was coming in and Enna wanted to make sure everything was in order. It already was, but the girl was a perfectionist when it came to animals.

Enna looked back at Kaiden and Maggie as the two disappeared. She sighed heavily as Forrest left to smoke as well. She took a deep breath and held it for a moment. She hated when people left like that. They never resolve anything, just left it there to deal with later. It was just a thing they all did, she did it too at times. Enna bit her lip softly and nodded after giving it some thought. "Let's just go." She muttered, hopping off the counter. She downed the rest of her Whiskey and slipped the glass into the sink. She ran a hand through her hair and picked up a few empty bottles and tossing them in the sink too. She looked back at where she last saw the rest of them and shrugged. "We'll see them tomorrow." She promised silently, holding her hand out to Sammy.

"Let's just go home." She added. "I'm ain't sure if I'm tired."

Eggshells. Oh they all walked on them. They all had a past that was troublesome but she was trying to move past it. The young woman knew damn well she was trying to. Enna didn't have any bad habits, expect for her sailor tongue and the drinking... and her tempting danger all the time. But that was who she was. Enna had a good buzz, she wasn't drunk but she was loose enough to not really care what was going on.

"Sammy.." She started. "When we get home, I think I want to take a bath." Her fingers linked with his once he took her head.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Naomi finally had the courage to stand from her chair. She was going to head to the bar but stopped as Walker placed his leg up in front of her. The ex assassin stood still and looked down at the drunk. He gave her a grin, as if asking her a silent "Where you goin?" Naomi didn't want to deal with any drunks right now. She wanted one drink and to talk to Kaiden. Kaiden would know about her brother, and maybe Trent... maybe. No one had seen her for awhile, and she wondered if she looked too thin. She was definitely tired. She hardly ever slept.

"Excuse me." She said, through a clenched jaw.

"But ma'am, I think you'd be a perfect fit for this old man's lap."

"You may have drank a bit too much, pal." The Asian noted. "Move your leg.. and your hand off my ass before I do it for you."

"What is up with ya'll Asian's and your damn attitudes?" Perhaps he said it too loud. Some of the chatter ceased, focusing their attention on the two's argument. "Ya'll come around the country side and ain't polite enough to give a man some company."

"Look, I-"

"You looky here. I am kind enough to offer you my company and you're denying it. Why's that? Can't handle an older man?"

"When you see one, let me know." Naomi blurtered and Walker stood up immediately.

"Those pretty little lips should only do one thing. And that don't include insults."

Kaiden slowly released her hand. The kiss made his worries fade away. Maggie tended to have that effect on him. What would he ever do without the precious little Angel of his?

He was going to turn on his heel when Maggie slammed the door at his face. Maybe it had been an accident? With that thought in mind Kaiden managed to turn to his right but froze at the shout.

"Oh hell, him again." Kaiden's head dropped.

And once again, Forrest would have to wait. It seemed like it was always like that. Something was always getting in between him and Forrest.

Kaiden yanked the door open and immediately set his eyes on Walker.

"Hey, whoa there--" Kaiden placed his hand on the middle of Naomi's back. "-- you alright?"

"And you know what, Walker? I agree with you. I need to teach Naomi how to make you squeal like the disgusting little pig you are. What happened between you and me?"

He dropped his hand to Naomi's and gently pulled her behind him. "I thought you and I had something special Walker. If I remember correctly, last time, I practically had you crying out. I enjoyed that immensely."

Kaiden had caught her. Oh, she didn't expect him to be there. The contact caused her to cringe, but nothing more as he pulled her behind him. She watched as he stepped forward, talking to Walker about some time they shared. Was Walker really the type? She watched as the man turned to a deep crimson shade of red, or was it purple? He looked from Maggie to Kaiden, to Naomi, to Kaiden again. She couldn't read his face. Was it disgust, as if Kaiden's words weren't true? Or was it shame, for they were? Walker glared at Kaiden long and hard before his eyes lifted to Naomi.

"She oughta get whipped." He warned, cocking his chin towards the girl. Naomi's eyes widened slightly before her lips parted to retort. However, Walker cut her off. "I ain't drinking too much, and Kaiden you keep that trap of yours damn well shut."

Naomi shook her head. She didn't care if it were true or not, it was just funny. Walker turned to Maggie. "You really gonna deny me another drink? I ain't that drunk, babe."

"I can smell you from here." Naomi muttered.

"What was that?" Walker snapped his head back to her direction.

"I said you'd better go before you hurt yourself."

Kaiden saw it coming. He could see the way that Walker was slowly losing it. The way that he gritted his teeth, clenched his hands into fists, and when he changed his posture-- well, Kaiden was prepared... except that he wasn't.

He had intended to dodge the first punch but when he took a step back and bumped into Naomi he knew that it couldn't be done. The second he would have moved, the man's fist would have collided with the woman's face.

So he stood there, waiting, for the punch to come.

It never came.

Walker was yanked off his feet and gone from his sight in a matter of seconds. Forrest. Oh that was bad... very bad.

Kaiden turned to follow Forrest, try to calm him and reason with him, but the crowd was an impenetrable wall. He hear Walker hit the ground and managed to catch Forrest's name coming out his mouth. The man was silenced by a blow that sent him off the porch. How did he know that he was off the porch? Well, he couldn't see what was going on but he could most definitely hear Forrest's heavy footsteps as he slowly stepped off.

"Forrest..." Kaiden said in a warning tone.

'Don't do anything else or so help me god I will lecture you to death!'

"Hoo! That boy is gonna be feelin' that for a couple days!"

Kaiden glanced over at Lucky. He was kneeling on a sofa and watching through the window. "You wanna see?" Lucky turned to Kaiden, feeling his eyes on him.

"No... I want to get out there and stop that idiot before he--"

"Too late!" Lucky raised his beer, as if cheering on Forrest's attack. "Right on the nose! Hooo whee!! Alright boys, who's up for a lil bet?!"

That single word turned the heads of many.

"I bet ya that he's gonna be feelin' like shit for four days!"

"Hell naw man, I've been kicked by Forrest before and that shit right there is at least two weeks of feelin' like shit!" Another shouted back.

The crowd gathered around Lucky, all screaming their own opinions at the elderly man.

Kaiden mouthed a thank you to Lucky before rushing out the door, careful not to step on Kuro's tail or knock over Maggie.

He only stopped to look over at the Asian woman. "I'm so sorry you had to witness this. I'll be with you in just a moment."

Kaiden was usually the one that ended up apologizing to the customers and making sure they were both physically and mentally OK after and trouble that would rise up... that and she looked very attractive, a bit too skinny for his taste, but attractive nonetheless. He wouldn't mind seeing if he could get to know her better.

That would have to wait.

"Forrest."

His voice was stern. "Can I please have a word with you?"


[[Kaiden remembers very little about Naomi. Since her appearance has changed and all, she's practically a total stranger until he gets her name.]]

Aikiko giggled at his grunt. How she had missed Forrest and all his Forrest-like ways.

She stayed still, frozen almost, when she felt Forrest pressing against her. She waited patiently until Forrest straightened before moving. The movement was simply raising her head to meet her friend's eyes.

"Hello to you too." Aikiko dropped her gaze to her plain ankle-length skirt at the word beautiful. Her cheeks turned a pale pink and her fingers began to rub

She couldn't help the bashful reaction. Aikiko still had... something for Forrest. It was stronger than simply 'liking' him but she wouldn't dare call it love. She had seen what love was. She had seen how strong it could be through Forrest and Kaiden, how sweet it could be through Enna and Samuel, and how life changing it could be through Woohyun and Margaret. She wanted that.

"I... there is nothing up. I was... simply stopping by."

Still avoiding eye contact.

Truth was that she was there for business. That could wait. She was sure that Maggie did not want to see her.

Aikiko had taken the role of the mother in the group and, surprisingly, she was the one that could get away with it. Perhaps because her approach was gentle and understanding... a large contrast to Kaiden's.

"You look better, Forrest-sama."

--------------------------------------------

"Jacob, I want to talk to you." Kaiden blurted out the second he opened the door. "Oh--"

His eyes landed on Naomi. With a smile in place, he headed towards the woman. "Hello gorgeous."

Aikiko looked up, watching his hand go up to the spot where the ring rested behind. She reached, slowly, and gently placed her hand over his.

"What you are doing, what you have moved from... it is wonderful progress Forrest. Do not forget that I am here to help. This is not something you have to do yourself." She added the last sentence hesitatingly.

"You and I could talk more. It would do your mind good. We could take a walk and you won't have to say a single word. I could do all the talking, yes?" Aikiko gave his wrist a small squeeze and smiled.

"I--" She shook her head and allowed her hand to slide away. "I am sorry. This is meant to be a happy talk. It is that you have been who I have been thinking about lately."




Kaiden barely managed to catch the dirty bar cloth. "Hey Maggie there- wait did you say Naomi? This is the Naomi?"

"I take all of that back." Kaiden tossed the cloth back to Maggie. "I apologize." Kaiden said, bowing to the woman.

Then he popped up and turned his attention to Jacob. "Look at you kid, making such a mess..."

"You didn't get any on yourself right?" Kaiden approached Jacob with a sly smirk. "Be a pity if you ended up getting all wet.."
