It all started out as a plan to meet up in real life and spend some time together. Where it went from there... Well, no one could have foreseen that we'd end up in this kind of situation... Panicked, shallow breathing in the dark. Trapped in a musty old room, back to the furthest corner, a few sets of frightened eyes bore down upon the rotting wood and tarnished brass handle standing blockade between their owners and what lurked just on the other side. Floorboards that ran the length of the room and straight under the door into the hallway creaked in protest as someone, or rather, something moved across the far end, slowly, meticulously, as if to send a message to the prey: I know where you are. I can hear you. I can smell you. I see you. Would the lock hold? No. Not against something like that. Not something so strong. Suddenly a fresh memory resurfaces in the minds of the cowering group. A memory of a blood-curdling scream cut short as the skin stretches tight across her neck, drawn under the stress of the beast's bony hands clamped one upon the crown of her head like a grim helm, long, black talons digging into the soft skin of her forehead, the other hand latched tightly to her shoulder. The hand upon her head was tugging, tugging, straining her neck until the skin split and tore. Those demonic hands tore her open like a Pez dispenser and even as her vocal chords snapped and popped free, a gurgling roiled in her throat before the hands dragged her into the shadows and out of existence. Cold sweat tickled each and every brow at the memory and the telltale heat in the back of their throats alerted them to the urge to vomit where they sat huddled in fear that they would be the next one to die. Thump. Scrape. Creeeaaaak. "It's found us..." Welcome to Europe~ I'm really glad you could make it! I know we've all be talking about meeting up for the better part of three years now but with jobs and school, it's always just been talk until now. We've already seen the popular countries but now we're driving through the tiny, barely-heard-of countries that are all clustered together. You know, the ones most tourists never visit. But we're not like most tourists are we? The countryside here is beautiful. It's nothing but tiny villages with miles of farmland and forest in between. It's a nice switch from the city, where some of us have lived our whole lives. We're just about to arrive at the cozy little inn we'll be staying at for the next two days, and I know some of you are wondering why we're staying that long in the middle of nowhere, but I promise you that I'll explain everything once we're settled into our rooms. This is a private roleplay. Sorry to anyone who was hoping to join! ): I See You is about a group of friends who met over the internet, maybe even on a forum like Iwaku! They've been friends for a while, Skyping, chatting, etc. and now they've finally managed to meet up in Europe for a roadtrip. They've come from all corners of the world and walks of life but they are most definitely good friends. The leader of this roadtrip, my character, has assembled an agenda. This agenda includes many popular places to visit, but it also includes a few rare gems. The little village they're about to enter and rent rooms at the inn is one of them. The leader has something planned. He just doesn't realize that some warnings should be taken seriously... CHARACTER SHEET TIME! [b]Name:[/b] Obviously, yes?
