Running To Stand Still

Who: Glitch, Cheyenne, and possibly Jack
Where: Outside the vicarage
When: Noonish (just after Cheyenne and Jack's previous scene)

Glitch was glowing with sweat despite the cold. But it had felt so good to just run. She hadn't had that freedom in months. Seeing Ronnie was a bonus she hadn't expected, but one that really warmed her soul. It really helped her outlook to see that she was alive and healthy. It gave her hope for the other people from her experiment that had gotten out.

Arrivals

Who: Will, and anyone currently in 2 Oakdale Drive (residing or visiting!)
When: After dark
Where: aforementioned house of "Experiment E-ers with S names...& Will"

Will had taken the long way back, in some kind of hope of finding Leah amongst the twists and turns of the town. He didn't have all the streets quite memorized -- and had gotten lost -- but as dark fell, he knew he needed to get home before something happened to Scott or himself, and started paying attention. He wasn't finding Leah and this was doing no good.

psychotic fucking bitch -- viewable to everyone but Joy

So, just for everyone's knowledge here, heads up, Everett, but there's a psychotic bitch named Joy in town, who as far as I can tell, wanted sex out of me, and when I wasn't into it, she got psycho whore on me and keyed my car. And I do mean my car. I got it back when it was christmas the other day. Thought I'd give people the head's up, because yeah. Fucking bitch. She seemed off and crazy before the keying, so I'm not thinking she's the most stable either. So...watch out for her. whatever.

[PM to Tobias]

Hey sweetie, just letting you know that I'm okay. I know Will messaged you earlier, but I'm feeling well enough to actually get out of bed for a few minutes at a time at least. Just wanted you to know.

Thanks for everything yesterday. And if you see the others, tell them too.

I really wish I would have woken up with you. How're you holding up today?

private to camber
Everything okay?

private to all experiment e folks, everett & ronnie
Who wants to find alcohol, a place to hang out, and watch movies or something? I'm feeling the need for something vaguely normal.

Search and Rescue.

Who: Will
When: Late afternoon
Where: Between the house and the clinic

Will burrowed into his coat, walking along the now-desolate streets of the town, retracing the steps he had taken with Leah the day before. It was a clear, sort of beautiful day, but no one was out, and the decorations of yesterday were down. He wasn't sure what was more sinister - the decorations themselves or the fact that they'd ever been up. Nothing about their abrupt Christmas seemed very pleasant.

He was very conscious of the fact that Leah wasn't with him; very conscious of the fact that she had probably come this way on her own. Her disappearance bothered him more than he could even articulate, but his attempts to convince himself that she must have been hurt somewhere weren't working very well. He walked quickly, lit a cigarette with shaking hands, scanned the snow for footprints or signs of a struggle without much hope.

drive

Feeling:
restless

who: shane and joy
where: around town
when: afternoon

Shane had gone for a drive. It had taken him a little while to actually notice that he'd gotten a present too, and it was his car. His baby. And she was purring like she always did. So, when stress was building up again, and he felt just about like he was going to be driven entirely insane, he'd gone for a drive. It wasn't quite the same without the ability to have the top down, but whatever. He still had his shades on anyhow like it was mid summer. The glare off of the snow was bright enough to hurt his eyes. And sure, he didn't have far he could go, but at the moment he could care less. He had the window rolled down, and his mp3 player playing loud as he pulled up to a stop sign--not that anyone else was out driving. He leaned back in his seat, one hand on the wheel, the other tapping out the drum beat to the song that played.

What'll it take to get it through to you precious
I'm over this. Why do you wanna throw it away like this
Such a mess. Why would I want to watch you...

private to owen

I've been moved back to my house. Don't look for me.
You're going to get hurt if you let people in so easily.
I'm dangerous you know. They locked me up.
Stupid.
