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.

No, his dick is too small already, for him to admit a girl knew something he didn’t, I said, but I quickly covered my mouth. Oh, my god! I’m sorry. I never talk like that! Not that I saw him being the type to care, but I did. I’d been so proud that hanging around men every weekend hadn’t seemed to change that, but maybe I was wrong. But really, did this guy look like he would be offended? It was pretty unlikely.

At this point, I was actually happily distracted from the races, and from looking for Chase like some sort of stalker. I was even more distracted by Samuel’s next comment. I was so surprised, my head snapped to him and an authentic, wide grin spread across my lips. Kick ass? Thanks, I said, cursing myself for never really figuring out just how to smoothly take a compliment. And as much as I wanted to give one back, I was even worse at giving them than I was at taking them. I felt like it always seemed forced. Well, I’m glad you think so, and I’m glad you decided to come keep me company.

My grin only widened, and silent chuckles began to spill when he called me a loser. Alright, and I gotta say, It’s nice of you to help out such a loser like me, I winked. This was exciting. Almost just as exciting as a race, and that's saying something. I don’t know, it wasn’t really common for me to get this kind of attention, at least for a while after I left the hospital. I had looked sick, like a ghost, and I thought it every time I looked in the mirror. I was beginning to get more weight, more color, and really more life. I was happier now that my old life was fading away, and I was losing myself in this one. (And of course I mean that in a good way). And what was great about it was that it changed [i]everything[/ii]. People approached me more, people spoke to me without that weird air of sympathy and caution that I was so sick of.

I looked down at the flask, a bit of hesitation. Even something as small as this seemed crazy, but today - Today was different. Today was cause for this. For stress of a breakup, but also for celebration. Because I was finally beginning to find myself.

Might as well, And I took a swig, setting the flask down and coughing a bit after. Woah. Yeah, I was used to mixed drinks. But it wasn’t long before I felt just a slight tingle in my face, and it was more glue to hold my grin in place. So where do you want to eat? I was actually thinking about Bennigan’s over in Index.

Why was I so worried about what I said? Why did I care? Who was I going to offend? What had biting my tongue ever gotten me? Of course, I had these thoughts all the time, and from what I heard, Claire before the accident never bit her tongue. Sometimes I think I had felt like that was all that was left of the old me - a bit of modesty, respect, whatever, even though the longer I lived in a world like this the more I seemed to get that all of that was bullshit. One of these days, I’d completely let go.

Hah! Well, I guess it’s about time. It feels good. I had to kind of yell that one, the engines of the two mustangs (that had been geared way too low, in my opinion, though I was no expert) were now working hard to get to the finish line of the race. One was a 69 fastback, black, gold stripe. I think 69? Maybe 70. How Sparky could always tell that shit was beyond me. The other was the kind I didn’t know as much about, those really boxy ones from the early 90’s. To me, they looked so boring, so.. just functional and not threatening at all. Which, then again, that Dart didn’t look very threatening either, but it bit. It really bit.

Right? I grinned, no, I smiled and nudged back, having a brief realization that maybe this side of the fence wasn’t all that bad after all. Most of the time you could hear yourself talk without screaming, and even if the benches kind of sucked, at least I was sitting down, and I was actually forgetting about Chase. Don’t get me wrong, the name would pop in my head, I’d catch a flash of what I thought might have been him, but I just didn’t care. This wasn’t that bad of an idea after all.

Let me guess, your throat builds up like.. a callous? Because that felt like straight gasoline. I paused, narrowed my eyes, and took another drink after him. There goes that fire you said I had in me, huh? Maybe that was a mistake, because I doubted I was exactly tolerant to alcohol, and with the frame of my body, I’d probably be a lightweight anyway. Oh, man, get that stuff away from me before I make even more of an ass of myself than I already have! But yeah, you uh.. you wanna head there now? As thankful as I am for the fries, I don’t think that’s going to quite hold me up.

Gas, dude, gas. Get me behind a car. And you know, I think I’m pretty sure my racing career isn’t over yet. Funny, it might have been if I hadn’t ran into this dude. I probably wouldn’t have stuck around as long as I had. I’d just feel awkward once I’d finished my chat with Sparky and left and went somewhere to feel sorry for myself. I felt now like I was already standing back up, and I kind of felt, I don’t know, invincible. Maybe it was whatever kind of gasoline Samuel had in his flask, but hey, whatever it was, was doing the job.

You know, that’s not a bad idea. And maybe I can give you a tour of the pit, since you’ve been so willing to share with my poor soul. I stood up, feeling so much better now that my thighs were no longer stuck to the bleachers. Follow me? I started down the steps of the bleachers and begun the walk along the fence toward the pit. It was going to be a bit of a walk, not terrible, though, and the crowd was actually thinning out which would work to our favor in getting back in the pit section. Depending on who was working, I’d probably be able to get back there without a pit pass or anything.

So, this your first time at the track? I asked, figuring we might as well keep up the conversation. We walked around the diminishing lines of the concession stands, and shit, wouldn’t have been a bad time to get more cheese fries, but now I was looking forward to Bennigan’s like nobody’s business. I think you should um.. give me your number that way I can nag you to root for me when I get my own car to race. I nudged him with my elbow, thinking now that line had been a lot more smooth in my head than it was when it came from my lips. Forward, much? But then again, who came and sat beside a stranger, giving gifts of booze and cheese fries. And I was certainly not complaining.

The words were still stuck in my head once we had passed the gate. The right guard had been working, so he practically saw my face, started some small talk and let me through. But.. yeah, I was a bonus? I was never wiping the grin from my face that those words had created. And maybe that was the contents of the flask working on me. I mean, I was starting to feel it, enough that I had to be careful that my words came out right. Damn, articulation could be challenging when you’ve had a little somethin’ somethin’.

I didn’t see Sparky yet, damn, did he leave? Sometimes he did, when they had the grandkids over he could never stay very long. Maybe he wasn’t gone yet - but no, instead, I saw Chase, and now that I was closer, I recognized that she was exactly who I thought she was. Man, how tacky were they? Yeah, I felt something funky in the pit of my stomach, a lot more emotion than I cared to admit, but they were just… going at it. Man, I know even when Chase and I were brand new, we knew the guys didn’t want to see that stuff. That was what the couch was for, right? I wasn’t completely against some PDA, but clearly this girl was bringing out a side of Chase I didn’t know existed. I was still relieved, greatly relieved when they stopped. I started to look around to see if Sparky was still around when it happened. My eyes widened, and admittedly, the movement caused me to stumble for just a second, but Samuel pulling me toward him left me unable to fall. That was a plus, right?

You know what, though? The look on Chase’s face - Yeah… I began to pick up just what Samuel was doing, and I was definitely going to roll with it. My smile spread from ear to ear, and I looked up at him, wrapping my own arm back around him. Juvenile? Maybe. Did I care? Absolutely not. I like the way you think, I murmured, so that I was sure only he could hear. It got even better when Chase basically dropped the blondie from anywhere near his attention span and started toward us. He rubbed his left arm with his right hand while he worked - his tell-tale sign that he was anxious.

”Claire, h-hey, what are you doing back here?”
In case you forgot, these guys have become my friends too. I figured Samuel here might like to meet a few of them. I didn’t lose my grip with him, either. Again, maybe I could blame it on the booze, but I kinda liked how it felt.

Looking back, I know now that I wouldn’t have been nearly as chill with this if I hadn’t drink some liquid courage from Samuel’s flask. But I was all smiles, and totally leaning into a guy that I’d only just met. Had it really been just the alcohol that had me so comfortable with him? He was just one of those people that just made you feel like you knew him already, or at least that’s how I’d felt then. And whether those thoughts were romantic or not, it didn’t matter. Yes, I was absolutely enjoying his arm on my shoulder, but him doing it in front of Chase? That was the actual cherry on top. I could call him my best friend right now, and it wouldn’t be far from a lie. That was having your back!

At first, I just grinned and watched the show, and I think Chase didn’t even have a clue how to take it. He looked from me to Sam then back to me, almost guffawing at my confident posture, and now my hand was interlocked with Sam’s hand on my shoulder. What a shame, but I’m sure we could see a few of the other guys before we leave, huh? I said, looking up to Sam. My hand loosened as I felt Sam’s hand move, and my smile widened at where it rested. Man, the man knew how to commit. I’ve been pretty great, Chase. And while I had only been great for the last hour or so, It definitely wasn’t a lie. Seeing him, talking to him wasn’t nearly as stressful or horrible as I’d expected. Man, why were people so hard on rebounds? This was working out pretty darn good so far and it wasn’t even the real thing.

I see things are going well for you, too, unless you count what happened on the track. I didn’t want to sound bitter, so I didn’t bring up the fact that I’d dusted his opponent before, and easily. You’ll get the hang of it, though, I’m sure.

”Yeah, well, my mind was elsewhere,” he said, now looking at the blonde. Finally, she seemed to notice me and sent a smug smile. Yes, that’s right, lady, be proud of your loser. See how much you’re smiling when I finally get a car and dust his ass myself.

That’s nice, I never had that excuse until lately. And I grinned up toward Sam. You know, Sam, I think maybe we should go ahead and go. I’m getting hungry. And bored.
