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.

Outskirts | Cold | Morning


I had gathered that the matter was urgent by the image flashed at me alone, but nothing could prepare me for the sight before me the minute we reached the outskirts of town and walked down the rugged pathway to a small clearing. What the fuck..is that? I raised my brow, darting my head back in the direction of my brother who only gripped at his forehead with his index and forefinger, dashing back and forth in thought.

What does it look like Santiago?! It's another girl..mauled to pieces.

I knew as such, I could see with my own eyes but…the way she had been mutilated was what had worried me the most. It wasn't the first time we had walked upon a woman torn up in such a way, in fact, it had been the 5th time, I had kept count. No offense, but why is this important to me, to us? I stepped back from the body, not wanting to get any closer just in case I left some evidence that pointed back to me.

We should call it in.

He was still pacing back and forth, back and forth, breathing harshly through his nose. What's wrong? Not like he had never seen a dead body before, granted maybe not in this same state but.. It wasn't anything new to him. What if it was me? Sometimes I get those blackouts.

I let out a slight chuckle and shook my head, if either of us had deep dark secrets, it was me, not him. Come on now, you get blackouts for how long? Barely even 10 minutes at a time, don't give yourself that much credit. And if I remember correctly, you always wake up where you blacked out. Relax. I made my way back over to the body and let me nose sniff out the scents, closing my eyes for a moment as I tried to separate the woman's scent, theirs and the scent of the killer.

Besides..

I breathed it in one more time, honing the scent and letting my body lead me to where wherever the scent followed. This isn't your scent..but whoever it is was here recently.

Probably to look at the body, admire his work. See here? I pointed over to some impressions on the floor, deep, long footprints. He must have come back, hidden behind this dip to check on her. Salvador shook his head, taking out his phone and calling the emergency services.

There's nothing we can do Salvador. She's clearly gone, maybe she had it coming to her. Though, this was the 5th body now, they couldn't have all had it coming. Once Salvador had come of the phone he merely slouched, glancing at the woman once more, her limp arm practically detached from the socket. All I can think about is Catalina and that night? What if he's a serial killer? What if he strikes again? I felt my throat closing up at the mention of his girlfriend and let out a deep breath. I needed to tell him, to be honest, but when? How?It's not our concern Salvador, we are not the police. What more did he want me to say? That we take vigil? That we follow the scent as far as we could? That we let the others know? Would they even care? Did he?

I get it, I really do Salvador, but there is nothing we can do, better we go, before we get questioned. Salvador nodded but stood where he was, his eyes never leaving the woman's body.

I miss her..Every day

I came to him, pressing my hand on his back, trying to be supportive. I know, but, isn't it time you moved on?  It had been long enough, he had wallowed in his pain for so long, wasn't it time to live again? I don't think I can ever move on Santiago..not until I know for sure what happened, not until I know for sure that..He shuddered, stopping mid sentence.

It doesn't matter. You're right I suppose. You go, I will stay and answer any questions, I called it in so it's only right I stay until they take her away.  I nodded in agreement, nothing I could say or do would change his desire to linger and I didn't want to argue, not when he was clearly tormenting himself.

I will be at work, if you need anything.
