This chapter is just the introduction. Characters, setting, and
other such things. I will be adding as I write, so be sure to check
in once in a while. ~ Characters: Sarah- The independent 'emo' kid.
She doesn't have many friends and she stays alone most of the time.
She looks like your typical emo lesbian: short dark hair, loose
dark clothes, grey-blue eyes. She hates her life, but she'll do
whatever it takes to stay alive. Simon- The brainy 'loner'. He
stays mostly to himself, and is one of the smartest kids in his
school. He has short dark hair, big green eyes, and a calm
demeanor. He stays calm and steady through everything. Beatrice-
The religious child. She was raised in a very religious home. She's
modest and kind because that's how christians are 'supposed' to be.
She believes everything that happens is god's will. She has long
brown hair, doesn't wear makeup, and wears blouses and jeans or
long skirts. Peter- The youngest of the four, and the youngest
child in a family with four kids. He's tough and doesn't get
offended easily because of being the youngest in the family. He's
punk, with black hair, eyeliner, and dark clothing. ~ Other
