    Noa lay on her side in her bed. She was exhausted and sore. She could feel her body shaking under the thin covers Ravel provided her. She watched her son who was across the tiny room in his own little bed; which was just a mattress of the floor.

    The young mother was worried about her son, he'd been angry at her the past few days. He had these mood swings now and then. It really hurt Noa when her son was mad at her. He had every right to be though. He shouldn't have to live like this. He was 6 and had never even been outside...he's just been stuck in this awful little room his whole life.

    Noa looked around the room. There was a curtained off area that was their bathroom. It had a toilet, sink, and a shower head in it. The floor had a drain. Up against the back wall was a tiny washer and dryer stacked. When Ravel was feeling nice he'd let them wash their clothes. Other than that there was her son's mattered up against the wall with the window and her bed on the opposite wall. There was a clear through tubby under her bed that had the few outfits they got. No shoes though.

    The window wasn't much to speak off. A tiny high up one way window. Jimmy had to stand on Noa's bed with his back pressed against the wall to get a good angle to see out of it. Sometime Noa would set him on her shoulders and let him look out closer.

    Noa sat up and wrapped her blanket around her. She had to get at least Jimmy out of here. She shivered. It felt like the walls were closing in everyday! Noa leaned her head against the wall and closed her eyes, trying to think. She wanted out of here too, but Jimmy was more important...he should get a chance at life.

    "Jimmy, you awake?" She called softly. It was late and she'd had to hide him under her bed for a few hours when Ravel was here. Poor kid was probably zonked out. She spoke softly so if he was sleeping he wouldn't wake up.

    Noa was kidnapped at 13 and forced to live in her captor's basement for 10 years. After 3 miscarriages and many escape attempted she became discouraged and depressed.
    After four years of captivity she became pregnant again. This one was successful and she bore her captor a baby boy. James Henry...AKA Jimmy.
    Jimmy gave Noa hope again. She started to care about living again.
    Noa started planning on at least trying to escape again. She knows she has to get it right the first time or she worries her captor may kill her boy.

    Eventually they do escape, but sadly their captor also escapes and is never caught. Now Noa and her son, who has never seen the real world, must figure out how to live again after years of seeing nothing but the little cell in a basement.

    They meet another man who helped them escape and is very interested in them. Noa is afraid, but Jimmy isn't. The man tries to befriend both, but is constantly pushed away by her.

    What will happen? Will they ever adjust? Will their captor show up again?

    Looks at Time of Capture: Noa was a small girl standing at just 4'9" when captured. She had a light build with a little muscle tone from working outside for her grandfather as a shepherdess. Noa had small yet noticeable curves depending on what she wore.

    Her skin was a light golden brown. She's mixed race Romani, Serbian, and African American so her skin stay a relatively brown color only getting a bit darker in the summer.

    Noa's hair was black and was right between wavy and curly. It went to her shoulders though she kept it in a pony tail a lot or under a baseball cap. If it was humid out her hair would get a lot curlier.

    Her face was 'diamond' shaped with visible yet not sharp cheek bones. Her eyes were normally shaped. She has a small nose and thin lips always turned up into a smile. Her ears were normal.

    Noa's eyes were a very dark brown with swirls of amber in them. They always seemed to be twinkling.

    Looks: Noa didn't grow much in captivity. She now stands at 4'11", but stopped growing at all about a year in captivity. She is thinner now and though she tried to stay fit and exercise in her cell she lost a good amount of muscle tone. All in all she looks a lot skinnier. Her curves are still noticeable though, perhaps more so she's physically matured a bit more and has very little body fat and muscle to hide them.

    Her skin is lighter too from years without sunlight. It still has a golden brown tint to it though it's paler than before. She also has new scars on her body.

    Noa's hair is a very dark brown now because her captor had her dye it(Without using bleach so it still turned out dark). It now goes lower to the bottom of her shoulder blades. At this length it more on the wavy side because it's pretty thick the longer it gets the less curly it gets because the curls are weighed down . Her captor would cut it whenever he disliked the length.

    Her face has gotten thinner, her cheek bones a little more noticeable, her jaw also stands out more. Her lips are the same, but are normally chapped because she licks them when nervous, she rarely smiles except for her son and her smile never goes to her eyes anymore. Her nose is a little crooked to the left because it was broken one time.

    Noa's eyes were a very dark brown with swirls of amber in them. They don't really twinkle anymore and have dulled a bit.

    Name: Noa Teodosija Abramovic

    Pronunciation: Noah Teo-do-zee-ah Abe-ram-o-vik

    Age: 23

    Birthday: 19 September 1993

    Gender: FM

    Personality before Capture: Noa use to be very friendly and pretty fearless. She was very cheery and had a positive outlook on life. She had a lot of energy and loved to work and help people.

    She was also very stubborn when she wanted something or thought she was right. Noa hated being told what to do which is why she didn't like school. She didn't like to be told how or what to think about things and would often refuse to do

    Personality: Noa is a hard worker. She's very loving towards her son and is also very protective of him. Her stubbornness seems to have subsided after her son was born.

    Noa is a lot more submissive than before. While she doesn't like to be told what to do she'll go with just about anything. If she has a contrary opinion she'll keep it to herself and doesn't push her wants or needs on people.

    Noa is tough, she can handle a lot of pain both emotionally and mentally. She doesn't complain when hurt and can take a lot. She still has a stubborn will to live and doesn't give up on even the tinsiest bit of hope. She wants her son to be able to handle life so she tries to show him that when life knocks you down you can get up.

    Noa can be very paranoid though. She's afraid to go back to her captor's and is always worried he's coming to get her. She doesn't trust people much and doesn't try to interact or befriend people like she used to.

    Bio: Noa's mother was a drug addict and Noa was born addicted. She was in the hospital for months before being released into her mother's care.

    When Noa was 3 she and her five siblings were removed from her mother's care and placed in her grandparents care. Her grandparents own a sheep and goat farm in the country and were hardworking yet not very rich so all the kids had to pitch in to help.

    When Noa was 13 she was walking home from school alone. She'd been late for the bus because she'd been distracted by a boy and was talking to him before he had to leave for sports practice. Only then did she realize how late she was and had decided to try and walk home through a short cut since she didn't want to tell her grandparents she'd been talking to a boy.

    On her way home she was kidnapped and brought to her captors lair. At first Noa fought to get out, she'd scream kick and punch. Anything to get away, but it never worked and only made her get punished worse.

    After two years she became pregnant and tried to get away at night wanting her baby to be raised in freedom. However she was caught before she got out of the house and was severely beaten which made her miscarry. She went into a severe depression after this.

    Over the next 2 years or so she had two more miscarriages and that only made her feel even more depressed and felt hopeless about ever getting away.

    After four years of captivity she again became pregnant. This time Noa begged her captor for pregnancy vitamins and other things to help her have a healthy pregnancy. She became very submissive and do whatever it took to keep her baby safe.

    When she had her baby she wanted to name him after her oldest brother and grandfather. The name Noa picked out was Petar Chance. However her captor didn't allow her to have any say in the name and instead the boy was named James Henry.

    Noa tried to raise her son well. They weren't allowed out of her cell in the basement, but she would still teach him and try to keep him healthy. She would exercise with him like stretching, push ups, sit ups, and other stuff inluding some tumblings. She also taught him his letters, numbers, colors, basic stuff she could teach him.

    Noa would always try to hide her son when her captor came to 'see' her because she didn't want him seeing or knowing what happened. She would normally build a 'fort' for him with some of the furniture in the room or make him go under the bed...anywhere really where he wouldn't know what was going on.

    Likes: The outdoors, fire places, coco, coffee, playing with her son, teaching her son, animals, her privacy

    Dislikes/Fears: Being touched(except by her son), feel unsafe, small tight spaces, news crews/media, public speaking, being restrained, bullies, showing people when she's upset, any kind of sensory deprivation(blind folding, things that obstruct her hearing, etc)

    Grandfather: Petar Jakov Abramovic (70, called- Deda or Grumpa. He always looks glum and is pretty strict though he's also a very loving and caring man. After Noa left Grumpa struggled with guilt because he blamed himself for her going missing)

    Grandmother: Filipa Alamina Abramovic (65, called Baka or Gramsy. She is hard of hearing and lost her ring and pinky finger on her right hand due to an accident with farming equipment as a young girl.)

    Youngest Brother- Roman Adam Abramovic (Age-20. He is currently going to college for a criminal justice degree.)


    At first she lived with her grandparents after escaping, but needing her privacy she and her son moved into a very small trailer home.

    After she escapes she's going to work on getting her GED.

    She wants to become a veterinarian technician and is planning on becoming certified in that after she finished her GED.

    Noa makes sure all doors are locked and windows are shut before bed.

    When she did chores on her grandaparents farm she not only herded the sheep and goats but also cleaned the stalls, fixed the fences, and worked on general maintenance.

    Noa is fluent in Serbian(Her grandparents taught her).

    She is teaching Jimmy both Serbian and English.

    Noa hated school with a passion though she managed to get a B average for the time she was there with now and than and A or a C.

    Noa didn't want media attention after being rescued. In fact she refused to do any interviews and did't want any pictures of her taken at all. She just wanted to be able to move on with her life without having to talk about her past or have her every move scrutinized .


    Name: James Henry Wolfe

    Nickname: Jimmy

    Age: 6

    Birthday: 21 June 2008

    Gender: male

    Personality: James or Jimmy is very shy but once he becomes close to someone he latches onto them and will refuse to let go (not literally). He also doesn't act like most kids his age since he had a very different childhood. He isn't very good at communicating and is very awkward with people sometimes just saying stuff at random and other times getting frustrated because he doesn't know how to convey what he is thinking of feeling.

    Bio: James was born in captivity obviously and was very confused about his situation. He didn't understand why he couldn't go play outside and why he could only look outside through a one-way window in the basement. He grew very resentful of his father who he doesn't know is his father.

    Eventually he became angry with his mother. He thought it was her fault he was in this place, that she had done something wrong and gotten them out in there. He trusts her but is often resentful of her.

    Eventually when they escaped he was excited but scared as well. He had never been outside so he was in awe of all the new things he had seen but was also afraid of them. He doesn't like how loud it is because it was always quiet in the basement.

    the outside world, quiet, animals

    Dislikes: the outside world (double edged sword), loud noises, his mother (sometimes), his father

    Noa, his mother
    Extra: he is left handed


    Name: Ravel Sin Wolfe

    Pronunciation: Ra-Vel Sin Wolf

    Age: 32

    Birthday: 12 Dec 1982

    Gender: Male

    Hot headed: It dosn't take much to get Ravel going he is easy to piss off and hard to calm down and can be quite violent at times.

    Violent: Works hand in had with Hot headed but he is quick to resort to violence and thinks its the best answer what cant you fix with a good old fashioned beat down.

    Vicious: When Ravel fights he fights he doesn't stick to any rules he will do whatever he can to win not to mention he caused Noa to have a couple miscarriages by beating her which tells how vicious he can really be.

    Cold: He doesn't care about any one but himself he dosn't care that he ended three life's before they began and left Noa scarred from what he did.

    Bio: Ravel didn't grow up in the best of households switching between his father who was always out with whores and his mom who was struggling to make ends so she was always out on jobs. He grew up by himself so he began looking up to kids in his neighbor hoods which happened to be thugs and gangsters. Which got him used to drugs violence kidnappings and other things at a young age so he grew up seeing those as right, he stole fought, sold drugs and other things.

    Once he reached 18 he enlisted in the military since he wasn't caught for anything during his time in gangs thinking this job would be just like the gangs he was with go places kill people loot them and take what he wanted, he was wrong after about two years he was put in a military prison for trying to rape a girl while on deployment. After leaving the military he joined MMA and started a rookie career for about five years becoming a main heavy weigh contender but never taking the title so he took the training and left.

    He started getting back in with his old gang members and started a business where he fixed computers but he actually took personal info from the computers and his gangs used that to get money high level fraud.

    Ravel was never good at finding himself a girl and he didn't like any of the gang members he saw all those girls as whores and sluts he took a interest in young girl that passed by his house multiple times so one day he set up a plan with some of his men and got her with a chloroform rag to her mouth and dragged her into his house and locked her in the basement.

    Jimmy was starting to drift to sleep so he didn't respond. That was part of the reason at least. Every so often he would get angry with his mother. He didn't understand his situation much his mother keeping him in the dark for the most part. He wanted to know what it was like to run around and feel grass under his feet instead of concrete. He wanted to be able to experience what a real bath felt like. He doubted he ever would though. Why did his mother make him stay down here with her? He just didn't understand.

    He also wondered if Noa was his real mother. He had figured out that kids usually look like there parents...but he didn't look like her at all. And who was his father? Maybe he didn't have one? Was that possible? There was so much he didn't understand that it gave him headaches often. Ignoring his mother he slowly fell asleep and started to dream.

    He was outside barefoot in the grass, it felt soft under his feet kinda like he was walking on clothes. There was a man there that looked like him as well as a women who looked a bit like him. They all just kept running around on the grass together. Jimmy kept laughing and laughing...suddenly the earth opened up and he was swallowed underground, he reached out to his "parents" but they couldn't reach him and suddenly he was in the basement again. Jimmy let out a soft whimper still sleeping.

    Mentioned: @Kurogane86 (Not by name. Sort of.)

    It was evening again. They'd had another long day in the basement. Noa had taught Jimmy how to do some flips/tumbling on his mattress and they'd done some other exercises. Today they'd also done some Serbian, Art, and Math. Ravel had allowed them to have two note books each and some pencils. Noa used one of her notebooks for Jimmy's schooling, the other she used as a diary of sorts where she'd write and draw in.

    Now it as dinner time. Ravel didn't allow them to have any cooking stuff in their cell because he thought it was too easy to weaponize. Noa had tried to convince him a couple times, but he would rather go to the trouble of bringing meals to them than risk them attacking him with cooking equipment.

    "Jimmy," Noa addressed her son sitting next to him on his bed. "You know the outside world? Well..I want you to go there, OK? I-I have a plan, but you'll have be a very boy OK?" she explained to him, "When Mr. Wolfe comes down with our food I want you hide in the bathroom, you gotta sound like your sick or something...that way he won't question why you're not out with me." she started. Her plan was desperate, there wasn't much more she could think of though,

    "You know how Mr. Wolfe leaves the door open for a short amount of time when he's putting the trays down? Well I'll distract him and you need to run OK? Run through the open door and get out of the house. You'll probably need to go upstairs and find the door that goes outside. Once you're OUT side start screaming OK? Scream louder than you ever have." Noa told her son. Her hands were sweating and she was nervous. She'd have to try to keep Ravel from following Jimmy long enough for him to get outside.

    "If you see anyone outside run towards towards people and keep yelling and scream. Yell 'Help!' OK?" she added. She paused for a few moments. How would Jimmy know what house to send the police back too? She didn't even know what town they were in anymore much less the street and house number.

    "One more thing, Jimmy. When you run outside look at the mail box...see what number is on it OK? When people ask you where your from just say that number." Noa added. A house number would at lest help. Jimmy knew what a mail box was because he'd seen in it story books. Also he knew his basic numbers.

    Noa ran her hand over her pants. She wasn't sure this would work. Ravel might kill her if Jimmy got out...maybe he had a gun and would try to shoot Jimmy...she would have to grab Ravel...try to keep him in the cell until Jimmy got away. As long as Jimmy got everything would be fine. If she died, hopefully they'd figure out who Jimmy was. Maybe her grandparents were still alive and would take him in. She wasn't sure. She knew sh eha dto steal herself for whatever Ravel would do to her when Jimmy got out.

    "You got all that, Jimmy? Can you do that, do you have questions? I know it's scary, but you're my brave little man." she asked him looking into his eyes as she waited for him to answer her.

    Adam was at the auto body shop when Mr. Porter the supervisor tapped him on the shoulder. "Hey Adam, why don't you go ahead and take your lunch break were pretty slow." Adam looked up and nodded. "sure thing Sir, I'll go ahead and take you up on your offer. I was planning on going down to the sub shop on 3rd. Did you want me to pick you up something?" Mr. Porter shook his head. "thanks kid, but the misses will get upset if I keep eating out." Adam chuckled and as he wiped his hands with a rag.

    He got cleaned up and got in his car. He turned the key, turned up the radio and started driving. He liked driving, the wind in his hair, the freedom. He passed a school with a bunch of kids playing on the jungle gym, he smiled and waved as he passed. As he drove he saw that traffic was piling up on the main roads. "oh man, I only got 30 mins." Adam smiled and made a quick left turn. "i guess i'll take a short cut through this residential area." Adam drove taping his hand against the side of his car as he listened to the music.

    Ravel was getting done cooking some steak medium rare steak with some steak sauce that he made himself. He then tossed some tv dinners in the micro wave so he could give some food to the bitch and her kid downstairs. The micro wave went off so he took the macaroni and cheese downstairs. "I hope you guys are hungry here's the shit food you guys want." He walks over to Noa and gives her the. "Better eat up because I got plans for you later tonight." Ravel says with a evil smile on his face.

    Noa felt herself jump when Mr. Wolfe came in. She took both trays allow glancing at her son.

    They had anywhere from 0 to 3 meals ever 24 hours. Or at least Noa guessed that was the time frame, Mr. Wolfe never let them know what time it was really. Their window was even tinted so telling what the daylight was didn't work. Noa could guess when night was because that's when her captor would come to use her and because it was darker outside.

    "Thank you, Mr. Wolfe" she said softly not wanting to anger her kidnapper.

    The full plan wouldn't work. He couldn't hide now, but the door was open he could run. Noa glanced away at the dinners in her hand, not wanting Mr. Wolfe to think they were up to anything.

    Run! Please run, Jimmy! Noa begged in her head. She didn't say anything out loud though.

    Noa felt her spine tingle and her skin crawl when Mr. Wolfe told her to eat up. She didn't want to think about tonight. If Jimmy tried to escape and failed it would be awful. Mr. Wolfe might even kill her son! Even if Jummy succeed in getting away Noa didn't want to imagine what would happen to her. And if her son didn't try then everything would stay the same...all in all she had a very thin chance of escaping what Mr. Wolfe wanted to do to her.

    Noa shuddered slightly as those though guys when through her head. She always tried to stay brave for her son and put in a string face around her captor, but it was hard and exhausting for her. The man always seemed to steal any energy had and suck the warmth out if her when he was around. She'd feel cold and helpless... Noa hated that feeling.

    "I'll open your dinner for you, Jimmy. Let it cool off a bit."
