Re: * RUNAWAYS REIMAGINED * ~ Jess & Syd

I was just now finishing up the pews, the ones on the main floor and the ones in the balcony seating. Once I finished, I walked to Sister Margaret and Sophie with my cleaning supplies, hoping she wouldn't give us another chore. I wanted to just find somewhere and sit down...possibly dose off.

Cory Stevens
They sort of dispersed after that so I walked towards the main building and headed to the choir room. Here we go..

~Sophie~
Ever joined us and we went back to the supply closet, placing our bucketfuls of sponges, rags, and cleaning agents inside and then stepping back so Sister Margaret could lock up the room.
"Now I want you girls to go pick up your bedroom before dinner," Sister Margaret instructed us as she pulled her key out of the lock. "It's an absolute pigsty!"
I nodded, trying not to roll my eyes. The only thing wrong with our room was that our beds weren't perfectly made, and the girls we shared the space with hadn't put their dirty clothes in the hamper.

~Jace~
I walked back inside the main building, searching for the stairs. It wasn't like the place was very confusing, but I had already forgotten most of Cory and Nathan's tour of this place. I entered the dining hall and realized I'd gone the wrong way. When I turned around, two little girls had magically appeared in my path.
Startled, I jumped a bit. "Jesus Christ," I muttered, looking down at them as my shoulders relaxed. I recognized the older one from the foyer.

I nodded obediently and watched her walk away before heading towards the stairs. It wouldn't take two hours to clean up our room before dinner so I had some time to myself.

"Want to see something cool?" I asked with a smile. I had my hands clasped together in front of me like a cage.

I knew Ever wasn't going to bother cleaning up now, but I figured I would just get the chore out of the way now, before I forgot. Once there, I picked up the dirty clothes and tossed them in the hamper, and then set to work on making my bed.

~Jace~
I quirked an eyebrow, eyeing their smiling faces warily.
"I guess?" I said slowly, finding this whole situation very odd already. I looked down at the younger ones clasped hands.

I walked closer and held up my clasped hands, being careful to open them just enough for him to see the gecko I had caught earlier. "His name is Chester." I took him off a Olivia's shirt. She hadn't even noticed he was on her back until I peeled him off.

I smiled, relieved it wasn't a spider or some other creepy crawly.
"That is pretty cool," I commented, kneeling down to get a closer look. "I like the name too. You gonna keep the little guy?"
I wasn't sure the nuns would allow that.

I nodded. "They haven't found all of my hiding places yet." I had about thirty when I first came here and they've only found half. It helped that I was smaller than them and could fit into tiny spaces. That's how I got my nickname from Cory.

"Do you have more pets like Chester?" I asked. I wondered how many animals and other things this kid was hiding throughout the house.

I thought about it. "Just Cory, the mouse and Juliette, the spider." Thankfully the nuns hadn't discovered them. I hid them in my top five best spots.

A spider? Yeesh. I wasn't exactly arachnophobic but that didn't mean I wanted to be near any eight-legged creatures.
"You make sure you take good care of them, right? Feed them everyday?"
The older girl, who had disappeared around the corner briefly, came back around to where we were. "Sister Catherine is coming this way," she warned.

I turned my head when Charlie said a nun was coming. "Oops! Bye Jace!" I smiled. I remembered his name from when that guy introduced them all. He was one of the only ones that smiled. I waved before quickly heading in the other direction, not running but not exactly walking either. I was only a few feet from hiding spot number nine.

I waved goodbye and got to my feet, watching her scurry off with the other girl not far behind. Cute kids. A little weird, but cute.
I continued my search for the stairs, wanting to get out of the hallway before Sister Catherine showed up. Moments later, I was climbing up the steps and walking into the sanctuary.

I sat on the top of the stairs leading to the fourth floor and leaned my head against the railing. The dream never makes it past our car falling into the river, but if I concentrated hard enough I could hear a man's voice talking to me, telling me things I didn't care about. Like how pretty the sky was outside, how loud the thunder was during a storm, what options I had when I finally opened my eyes and got better so I could leave; I didn't care. Things were bearable when my eyes are closed. I still don't know why I opened them.

I walked around the sanctuary, looking down each row of pews and going around the alter. Stairs Girl was gone, and the other girl was too. I blew out a breath. Well, I wasn't gonna search the whole house for them.
I left the sanctuary and started up the steps, deciding to just go back to my room and unpack. As I made my way up the last set of stairs though, my eyes landed on Stairs Girl.
I stopped at the bottom of the staircase, looking up at her. Her eyes were closed. Was she sleeping?

My eyes opened when I heard footsteps coming in my direction. I'd been trying to remember but could only hear the man's voice and see the white walls of a hospital room. The rest was a blur. My eyes focused on a figure at the bottom of the stairs, one of the new kids ...the one that had a guitar. I relaxed, glad he wasn't a nun, and scooted closer to the railing so I wasn't in his way.

I just stood there, not knowing what to say. Obviously I wasn't going to tell her I'd been looking for her. Would it be weird if I mentioned that I saw her on the steps earlier? Or that I had seen her in the sanctuary?
"Hi," I finally said after a few too many seconds.

I stayed where I was at the bottom of the stairs, one hand on the railing and the other tucked into my jacket pocket.
"I'm Jace," I introduced myself. "What's your name?"

I crossed my arms infront of me and leaned forward, supporting myself. "Ever."

I think so hahaha

~Jace~
"Ever," I repeated, smiling a little. It was different. "Cool name. I like it."
I climbed the stairs and took a seat a few steps below her. "I think I saw you earlier, sitting on the steps when we all got dropped off here."

He smiled and said he liked my name. "Thanks."
I watched him sit down a few steps below me.
"I think I saw you earlier, sitting on the steps when we all got dropped off here."
I nodded. "You were the one with the guitar." That was the first thing I noticed. That and he was friendlier than the others. He actually smiled.

Now that made me smile wider. So she'd noticed me.
"Yeah," I confirmed. "Hopefully the nuns won't confiscate it."
I'd noticed that most of the bedrooms were pretty barren, and that kids hid their toys when one of the Sisters walked past. The only time Nathan had put his camcorder down in the short time I'd known him was when they were near.

"They won't if they don't see it." Even if they did, he'd get it back eventually.

I laughed a little. "I'm not sure I could find a big enough space to hide it." Didn't really matter though. Even if I could hide it, I'd never get to play it without them hearing it.

He must not have met Milo. "You'd get it back eventually," I told him. "They might let you keep it if you helped Cory with choir practice." Cory played the piano for the kids choir and the nuns choir. He often complained he was losing his hearing from all the nuns' screeching.
