At first they dismissed the noises and movement, thinking that it was their own imagination doing all of this. After all, they were old enough to not believe in fairy tales. But after the first night, the disruptions continued, sometimes well into the early morning. They all heard it though, that rattling and heavy breathing. How embarrassing it was to call Rebecca up to check under their beds - they were teenagers, they shouldn't have been scared. And yet their foster mother didn't find anything, just dust bunnies and a lost key ring. Perplexed, she told the children it was their imagination and they should put it out of their minds. But one soul was brave and one night with the moon light spilling into their room, Leah got onto the floor, lifted up her sheets and looked under... And then she was taken. Large massive claws suddenly shot out from the darkness, clutching painfully at Leah's sides. She screamed, her pinned arms preventing her from fighting back. The rest of the teenagers screamed as well, but acted quickly. They clung to Leah's hands and arms, pulling hard. But the monster was stronger and deadlier. With his claws digging deep into Leah's sides, he drew blood. The teens couldn't hold on any longer. They collapsed on the floor, watching Leah quickly disappear under her bed. Moments later, Rebecca opened the door. She looked concerned, her eyes landing on each of their faces, scrutinizing. One of them was about to speak, and tell her that the impossible happened, but Rebecca spoke first. "... Is everything alright? I heard screaming." "Rebecca! Leah's missing! Some monster appeared under her bed and - " Their foster mother frowned deeply. "Leah? T-There's no Leah here sweet heart." Bewilderment crossed her face, only to be replaced with a cross look. "I hope none of you have been picking up bad habits. I'm searching your rooms first thing tomorrow mourning..." She shook her head, muttering, "First it's monsters and now this." She made a sound of frustration, then shut the door behind her. The teenagers were left alone, scared and confused. How could their foster mother have forgotten about Leah? You are one of several foster children, living in Rebecca Mink's home. You all sleep in the same room, since she only has two bed rooms. All of you have recently arrived to this new home and are just getting acquainted with Rebecca, your new foster mom. Things are a little cramped here, but comfortable. Food is abundant, no one is yelling at you or blaming you for anything lost in the house. Just because you're teenagers everyone seems to think you're up to no good.... Well okay you have a little bit of history on you, but you can change right? I will accept six (6) players and I ask these players to be able to write at least two paragraphs and post once a week. Please be willing to work together and talk amongst yourselves in the OOC if needed. I will hijack players in case things become stale (people aren't posting) or to move the plot along, that will be the only reason I will hijack. I will pester people to post, and you can do the same to me - within reason of course. This roleplay is Horror themed, with Adventure mixed in. There will be elements of Alice in Wonderland, along with Where The Wild Things Are, and some pictures to help you... Visualize what is going on. I'll be using some of the creatures I've drawn from the Eight Aspects of Iwaku to either aid or hinder your character's adventures.
