setting
Index was once a small and close-knit community, but the town located on the western side of Washington state has grown in recent years beyond anyone's expectations. It is the ideal place for those who work in Seattle but can't afford the city's high real estate prices, and for others the natural beauty attracts them to the town. And Index truly is a beautiful place - surrounded by thick evergreen trees, tall mountains and glistening rivers and lakes. While weather is typically rainy with overcast skies even this does nothing to take away from the beauty of the town, and it is only highlighted further when the heavy snow graces the town and caps the mountains in winter. To many, Index would seem like a paradise. And yet lurking beneath this visual beauty there is more to this town than anyone might ever imagine...

Current Time in Index, Washington:
rules
PLAYBYS: Sims from the games Sims 2, 3 and 4 are used to visually represent player’s original characters (no characters from within the franchise are allowed). But, you do not need these games to join and roleplay! If you wish, you can post a thread in our out of character / general forum and list as many physical details about your character as you wish. The members of Index will happily try and make a character for you, and you can choose which one you feel best fits your vision.

AVATARS: Avatars should display your characters face clearly and should be at least 200 pixels tall, and 200 pixels wide.

THREADING & POSTING: When threading with multiple characters, it is important that you post only when it is your turn. This can be acheived by taking note of who has posted before you, and remember you are to always post after them. If you were the thread starter, then it is your turn after the final person has joined your thread.

When creating a thread you are required to place a tag before the title. Here are a list of types of thread you can create and how to tag each one:

[Open] Anyone is welcome to join your thread, with no limit on the number of characters.
[Open - #] Anyone is welcome to join your thread, but there is a limit on the number of characters who can join. Replace the # with how many extra characters you will allow to join your thread.
[Private] Only specific characters can join your thread.
[Closed] This tag should be used for threads that only involve your character.

ACTIVITY: To keep threads moving, people are encouraged to post within three days when it is their turn. If you do not post within three days, and you have not asked people to wait for you, it is possible you will be skipped. Keep in mind this is just a suggestion. While we'd love for everyone to be active every day, we understand that real life and other hobbies are just as important, if not more. We want you to be active because you want to be, not because a rule is telling you to be.

MATURITY RATING: Public threads should all be PG. If roleplayers above the age of 18 wish to post content that could be could be considered graphic then it should be hidden from view using the [hide] [/hide] code, which will enable only those in the threads and administrators to view the content.

I glanced to Avery, my eyes narrowed not out of ill feeling, but because I just felt so tired and rough. Quote Begin Yeah. Some people don't even think bisexual exists.Quote End I said, without the usual conviction. Avery at least managed a smile out of me with her own determination, and a happy laugh that she thought so strongly - which soon faded when pain coursed through my chest.

Quote Begin What?Quote End I looked at Avery, watching her frown and slowly moving back from her hand, mirroring a frown back at her.  Quote Begin What?Quote End I repeated when Avery mentioned an ambulance. Quote Begin  No, I don't need a fucking ambulance, shit, seriously,Quote End As I started to get worked up I started coughing and had to break off to hack out a few again, trying to breathe so it didn't hurt as much. I looked back to Avery. Quote Begin I said, I'm fine!Quote End I could see Avery had a determined look on her face though, and I leaned back on the couch, refusing to look back at her in case she tried to guilt me into going. Even through my tired, pained haze though, I knew she wouldn't give up. I didn't even have the energy to argue too much. I gave in, looking back at her. Quote Begin Fuck... don't call an ambulance. If I go in a cab... and just to check stuff because Brad hit me - there's nothing fucking serious about the cough - then... yeah, we'll do that. A cab. Quote End I said, losing what I was talking about halfway through. I coughed a little and went to get up, only to slouch back down again when I realised something.. Quote Begin Fuck.. I have to get dressed. And.. they'll probably just say there's no need for it when we get there anyway. And.. your face looks bad, where Brad hit you, that's probably bad too, you should be getting that checked, not  me with stuff. And what if they think I hit you?Quote End I blurted out, willing to say anything in a last ditch attempt to avoid going to hospital. Quote Begin I don't like hospitals.Quote End I finally said, gazing up at Avery sadly as if that might change her mind that I needed to go.

Well that's stupid. I blurted out, more than a little surprised at what I was hearing. I knew that people could be incredibly narrow minded or even just obstinate to the point of idiocy, but outright denying the existence of something like that was mind boggling to me. You'd think by now that people would've overcome bigotry, so ridiculous. I shook my head and looked down at the floor, mulling over what Lenny had said as well as the other thoughts it brought to the forefront of my mind. There were so many 'reasons' that people said explained why people thought the things they did. Age., upbringing, lifestyle, place of birth and even the media. But none of that seemed a good enough reason to walk around with hate in your heart towards people who didn't deserve it, had done nothing to bring it upon themselves.

But it soon became apparent that now was not the best time to dwell on the state of humanity. I should have expected it though, considering the mood that still blanketed the house after the whole episode with Brad. That coupled with the fact I'd been drinking was pretty much a prescription for thoughts about the state of the world. But with Lenny and the way the situation had changed all such thoughts were banished from my head and I wasn't sad to see them go. I wasn't sure what was wrong with Lenny or how serious it might be, but I did know that staying calm was important.

Which was surprisingly easy when I realized that whatever was wrong with Lenny didn't stop him protesting. If there was ever a situation where he willing agreed to going then I'd definitely be freaking out. The ambulance is only if you refuse to get in the taxi. It's always best to have a back up plan. I told him, trying to sound soothing as I said the words when I saw him start to get agitated and then seemed to be overcome by more coughing. He really didn't sound good, could he not hear that? Please Lenny. I implored, my only response to him saying that he was fine. He was the opposite of fine no matter how much he thought otherwise. 

At least he did agree to the cab. I set the icepack down on the coffee table as I got up, rushing over to where I'd left my bag and puling my phone out. I had phone pressed to my ear and dialing in no time, walking back over and responding to Lenny as I waited for it to pick up. Just wear what you're wearing now, I'll get you some socks and your shoes. It's not a fashion show- I broke off as the other end picked up, giving the address and explaining the situation. I may also have mentioned there'd be a big tip if the driver got here quickly. I hung up, my attention returning to Lenny. My face will bruise and even then not for another while. You look far more banged up than I do anyway, they're not going to think that. My heart went out to him as I tried to put myself in his place but I couldn't overcome the fact that going to check up on this was the smartest course of action. I know and I'm sorry. But if there is something wrong the finding out now would be best instead of letting it get worse and ending up having to spend even more time there, right? I reached out and patted his knee, wishing I could just stay there and hug him but I need to get his things. I'll be back in a sec, okay? I said giving him a smile before rushing out of the room, running upstairs and into his bedroom. I ignored the general messiness and hunted around until I had what I needed, stuffing it in his sports bag. I'd included a change of clothes just in case,

With all that done I shouldered the bag and headed out of the room again, taking the stairs down a little more slowly than I'd gone up. Going down was far more unsafe than going up anyway and even now I couldn't help but think about that. But once I was clear of them I hurried back into the room, placing the bag on the seat of an armchair and sitting back down beside Lenny. The taxi should be too much longer. I said, probably more to reassure myself then him.

I didn't want to go the hospital, really didn't want to go, but I just groaned at Avery's reasoning, knowing she was right. I just didn't want her to be right. But one evening, maybe an hour or so and then hopefully getting sent back home would be better than anything ending up worse and spending longer there - even if I was still adamant that nothing was really wrong. I was too scared to think that there might be.

Miserable didn't cover how I felt as I stayed slumped against the couch, glaring at the ceiling. My hand stayed over my chest because I felt that helped somehow, and I kept my breathing shallow like I had been the last few days. It was just a cough... Avery would soon see.

Quote Begin Thanks. You fucking owe me though, if they just send us back again. Quote End I grumbled, but rolled my head to the side to look at Avery. I managed a small smile for her, but had to look away because I just felt so shitty. It probably seemed as if I'd just fallen apart when she hadn't been there, that I hadn't been able to cope on my own, and it hadn't been like that at all...

I was prevented from trying to say anything by the flash of light and sound of a car outside, that I knew would be the taxi. I groaned and grunted, putting off getting up as much as I could. Quote Begin You're getting your face checked up too.Quote End I argued just for the sake of it, and then heaved myself up from the couch.
