Ok, here's a new RPG. The basic story:
A group of people have been having dreams. They know that the dreams are showing them something that's going to happen, but they don't know when, where, or why. In every dream there's a good thing and a bad thing. ALL DREAMS HAVE TO BE CONNECTED SOMEHOW. Now the character rules:
1. No Godmoding
2. No Controlling other people's characters
3. You can be someone who was mentioned in someone else's dreams, unless the user specifically states you can't control that character, or the user is already controlling him.
Now Profiles should look like this:
Age: (can be specific or just an age group)

Vincent woke up. He had just had the same dream/nightmare he had been having for the last few weeks. He looked at his clock. 5:55. If he went back to sleep he would have to wake up in fifteen minutes. He shut down the alarm and went to his kitchen.
He made himself breakfast and drove calmly to his school. On the way he listened to "Man of Constant Sorrow". Once at school he went to his classes, always looking out in case the girl of his dreams was there.
08-09-2004, 12:42 AM
Brad got up in a cold sweat, he sat breathing heavily. He looked at the clock. 6:00am He might as well get ready for school, so, he got ready and drove to his college. Upon arrivng he couldn't help but think about his dream even during his class.
08-09-2004, 12:42 PM
Lunch break. He also had the next period free. He picked up his backpack and ran to work. At the pizza place he got in uniform while chatting with his friend
"Hey, you heard Motocross is coming to town?"
"Cool. maye I'll be able to catch a few races."
"You a big fan?"
"No, I just enjoy watching most types of races."
"Alright then , let's get to work."
Business as usual so far.
08-09-2004, 02:21 PM
Jennifer woke up to her dream again, she ignored it and got ready for her early morning bike practice, he got her stuff and headed down to the track, she suited up and tore down the track at full speed doing her usual run. when se finsihed her manager was standing there.
"well jenny, the next motocross tournament is moving to another city soon"
"yeah i know, i'm still practicing anyway"
"always good to hear" the manager walked off and jennifer put her helmet back on and started riding again.
08-09-2004, 02:50 PM
((Curt, check your PMs))
Vincent finished chatting with his friend and went straight to work. He quickly made 5 pizzas and hurried to deliver them.
08-14-2004, 09:15 PM
Vincent first went to the house of his favorite customer. He worked in a ticket office, and sometimes offered Vincent extra tickets to some events. He knocked on the door.
"Wow, you're 20 minutes early, man."
"Yeah, I hurried up."
"You heard about the motocross coming to town?"
"Yeah, me and some friends were planning on going to it"
"Really? Here, four tickets, front row."
He handed Vincent a folder with the tickets, promotional phamphlets and other information about the races.
Vincent finished his deliveries and went home. He opened the folder and froze. On the front of the roster was a picture of the girl from his dreams. He quickly looked up her name. Jennifer O'Grady, and apparently she hadn't lost a race yet. He picked up the phone and called someone he thought might help him meet her, Brad.
08-14-2004, 10:43 PM
Jennifer finished her rounds and she then went home to relax, just as she sat down the phone rang, she let out a grunt then picked it up
"hey jenn, its your manager here, just telling you that we are leaving tomorrow, so get your things packed and be ready to get up and go alright?"
"yeah sure, alright cool, see you tomorrow then?"
"yep, and make sure you get alot fo practise in, there is a new racer on the track, they say he's good"
"we will have to see about that, won't we?"
"ah ha! thats the kind fo spirit i like!, bye jenn"
jenn hung up and went to her room, she packed her biker suits, her louging clothes and her going out clothes, she then picked up a picture the man of her dreams, she drew it herself, and thats the best she could come up with, it was pretty good, she used to be a artist, she packed that away hoping to find him, she doubted it though, and then she packed numourus other things as well.
when she finished packing she lay down on her bed and set her alarm 4 hours ahead, then she would practise.
08-15-2004, 07:58 PM
Vincent got the e-mail of a webmaster of a motocross site from Brad. He asked the webmaster if he could interview Jennifer for them and set up the date with her team's PR manager. He then got out his dream notebook. There he had recorded every detail of the dream. He had made two pictures of the girl. One by hand, and the other with a police description computer program. There were some differences but sure enough, the girl was Jennifer. He did his homework and went to sleep, now more scared of his dream, knowing at least part of them was coming true
08-15-2004, 09:32 PM
Jennifer woke up, as usual a few minutes before her alarm went off, she turned it off, and suited up then headed out to the track, she saw a few other racers practising as well, she went on the megaphone and said
"hey! this is jennifer, anyone who wants to have a friendly race meet me at the starting line". when eveyrone was there she started up and got the track operator to make a countdown, and they were off, down the track and around the first bend to hit the first jump she wa clearly smoking the rest of the riders, one was close on her tail though, she couldn't shake him, so she tried going as fast as she could on the track, something she had never done, they came around a few more turns and a few more ramps, then they went down a steep hill to hit a huge ramp, she hit it perfectly as did her tailing rider.
as they came to the finish line she had clearly won and stopped after she won, and took off her helmet to see how the mystery rider was.
"hey you! your a good racer, you almsot passed me a few times"
"yeah, well i practise everyday and i watch your movies and your races, and i study how you race, i see no flaw in it"
"your too kind, you really want to beat me don't you? well i'm jennifer, pleased to meet you"
"hi i'm john, we shall meet again tomorrow then"
"your coming too? wicked alright then, see you there".
08-15-2004, 11:41 PM
Vincent arrived at the track just in time to see the race. He saw Jennifer beat the others, and when she took her helmet off he was still impressed. She was exactly the same as in his dream. He walked down to where she was.
08-16-2004, 01:33 AM
Name: Erin Rice
Job: pizza delivery
Dream Description: The city is exploding around Erin she can see no way to get out. She wonders briefly what is going on, but there is little time for her to wonder. A brilliant exposion roars straight ahead of her and she is pushed backward into a nearby building. She hopes she can get out of the building some other way and starts running through the halls. Suddenly, a guy grabs her arm and turns her around, leading her down below ground level. There they stay, but it is not a safe place. Soon, the explosions come again... one destroys the guy who helped her and then she wakes up.
Erin awoke with a scream. She hated that dream! Why did it have to come to her every night? Now that the dream had pulled her out of her sleep, Erin knew she would not be able to sleep again. She looked at the clock and groaned. 4 AM was not a great time to wake up when you had to work until 9 PM. Erin shook her head, amazed at herself as she reminded herself that this was what she did every day.
Every morning, the dream woke her up at 4 AM. Every morning, she woke up enough that she could not go back to sleep. Every night, she fell asleep by 11 PM, but every morning, without fail, the dream interrupted her sleep.
She rolled over in her bed, wishing she could get back to sleep, but when she gave in to the fact that she would not, she rolled herself out of bed and went into the kicthen, rubbing her eyes. This would be a lousy day, just like all days.
By 9 AM Erin was at the pizza place she worked at. She briefly acknowledged Vincent and his friend and overheard what they were talking about. Motocross... one sport Erin could not understand. What was so exiting about it? Erin could not answer that question. Racing around in an oval on motorbikes... no, Erin could see nothing special about it. Instead of trying, she decided to get right to work, something she was good at.
Erin liked her job... sort of. Delivering pizzas wasn't all bad. She enjoyed driving around the city and was glad to have some way to pay her bills. When there were no more deliveries, she went back to the pizza place to wait for more. Typically, they waited until they had five pizzas they could deliver, so she had to wait a while. She shrugged. Nothing wrong with waiting.
08-16-2004, 03:06 PM
(by the way joke, i'm not at the track in your city yet, i was just having a friendly race with the other riders, it was not a scheduled race, so no one would be there to watch it)
Jennifer went home and took off her motocross suit and just got into her lounging clothes, she lazed around for an hour ro so then went to sleep, she needed it, if he could almsot catch up to her on a course she knew, she wondered how they would fair in a totaly new track,she went into a deep sleep, and then it happened, her dream again, she woke up and gasped, she dispiesed(sp) that dream, she got some breakfast and got ready to move out to the new town, where she hoped to meet her dream man.
08-16-2004, 03:17 PM
((Whoops, sorry about that. Thought you were in the track in my char's city, and anyway, my character was arriving to 'interview' you, so it wouldn't matter if the race was scheduled or not.))
Vincent couldn't sleep at all, nervous about his dream. He finally got up, went to school and to work. At work he couldn't concentrate. He seemed extremely tired, and looked as if he would fall asleep at any moment. While waiting for the pizzas to get finished he noticed Erin there. He walked over to her.
08-16-2004, 08:56 PM
Jennifer waited outside her apartment building waiting for the tour bus to come, it finaly came, she got in and saw all of the other racers, soem playing cards, other reading, and some more laughing about something, everyone silenced when she entered though.
"at ease? jeez guys come on lighten up" Jennifer said in a joking manner, and everyone laughed and went back to what they were doing, she sat beside one of her friends, a fellow rider.
08-16-2004, 09:31 PM
Brad heard about the MotoCross event comming up, he figured he should check it out. So, he went ahead and got into his car after he finished the site managing for a client.
08-16-2004, 10:28 PM
Erin smiled at Vincent, but her smile faded quickly. "You didn't get much sleep either, did you? The dream again?"
08-16-2004, 11:41 PM
08-16-2004, 11:57 PM
Erin nodded. "4 AM, just like normal." She sighed. "Sometimes I wish I could have a normal sleep schedule. As it is, I'm always tired and there's nothing I can do about it."
"Erin!" the boss called. "We've got ten deliveries for you. Get going!"
"Ugh," Erin muttered. "What made them wait for ten?" She turned to Vincent and smiled again.
"I gotta go," she said. "See you later."
08-17-2004, 12:18 AM
Jennifer chatted and joked with her friends and then she got tired and went to sleep,she woke up to her dream and was gasping for air, everyone was looking at her and they shook their heads and went back to what they were doing
"you alright jenn? bad dream?"
"yeah, but its gone now, i'm ok" then a voice came over the intercom
"10 minutes unitl destination, get your stuff ready" the voice crackeld off.
"finaly, ive been waiting for this race" jenn then stood up, stretched and went off to her stuff and put it all back in her carry-on bag.
08-17-2004, 02:37 PM
On his rounds, Vincent called Brad.
"Thanks for giving me the e-mail man. You wanna come with me for the race? I'm interviewing one of the races right after it."
08-17-2004, 10:33 PM
Vincent couldn't reach Brad, so he had left that message on his answering machine. He finished his rounds, and called Erin with the same offer to go to the motocross. But with her he explained that he had recognized one of the racers as the girl from his dream.
08-17-2004, 11:52 PM
Jennifer was the last person to get off the bus, she got off and pulled her jacket around tight, he went and got her bag and went with the riders to the hotel and she saw her manager there so she talked to him.
" i hoped you practise jenn, the race is in 2 hours"
"yep, i'm ready, i'm pumped, i'm ready to go"
"good good, alrighty, go get changed and meet me at the track, you know where it is right?"
"alright, your room is 808"
"ok thanks" jenn went into the elevatoir and went to the eighth floor and went to her room, she unpacked the picture of her dream man, and out it on the counter, she thne put her clothes into the drawers and the rest of her stuff in their proper places, she then went downstairs and drove off to the track, even though she wan't racing for another hour and 15 minutes.
08-18-2004, 10:43 AM
Erin smiled. "If it's to see the girl in your dream, I'll go. You've tried to explain her before, but I never quite understood."

Name: Ian McRattle
Job: Fixing cars
Dream Description: Ian walks out as he hears a large explosion. Another one, another one and another. He walks back into the building behind him and saw a woman inside, looking lost. He grabs her arm and leads her below ground level. Then he wakes up as a roar of explosions come again.
Ian wakes up and drops to the floor from his small bed. He forces himself to sit onto the bed and shakes his head. He moans from the pain in his head. "Ugh... Damn those nightmares... Allways get me a headache. Better get an aspirin" he says to himself and wakls to the bathroom. He takes a small box and takes an aspirin, then takes some water to wash it down. He shakes his head slowly as he puts the box back into the cupboard over the sink and walks to his computer. He looks at the clock. "5:00 AM... Awh..." he says again to himself as the computer boots up. He opens his MSN messenger at once, only to see the light blue box appear. 'You have 5 new messages' it says. Ian clicks it away and checks a webnewspaper. In sports he finds that a motocross race is on that day. He grunts and proceeds his reading. As the clock proceeds it's running, Ian gets hungry and walks to the fridge. He sees nothing eatable in it, so calls the closest pizza service.
"Yeah. Cheese-tona-pizza. Make it quick, thank you" he said into the phone and walked back to his computer. Now he started reading his E-mail. "Hmm... 'Enlarge your penis!' delete... 'Free pr0n. Only $5,99 a week' delete... 'This is a spam mail for you to stop spam with our stopspam-propgram' delete... 'Free Viagra. Only now from...' delete... 'Hi. Wanna join me in my bed. Only $9,99' delete... 'You have to meet me at the motocross races! Man, It's gonna be great!' delete... Everything was spam, like I guessed..." he was once again talking to himself. It was time for he to put some pants and T-shirt on. He put a black T-shirt on to cover his medium muscular chest, and some cheap army pants on. He waited for the pizza delivery.
08-18-2004, 01:54 PM
"Hey, the guy pulling you to safety isn't exactly descriptive either. I'm gonna see if Brad wants to go. Jeff's coming, and so's Jack Cassidy "
08-18-2004, 02:56 PM
Jenny got to the track and parked, she went into the Riders only lounge and saw that her rival was there.
"hey! jenn what's up? i'm pumped, how about you?"
"yeah i'm ready to go, this course looks wierd, alot of turns and jumps, not alot of straights, good, i never was one for alot of speed, just enough to keep me going"
"well heh, i'm opposite, so we shall see who wins eh?"
"yeah" jenn walked over and looked and studied the couse, she didn't like it too much, just then her manager walked in
"jenn, come on come with me to the trailer we have some things to disscuss"
"ok" jenn followed her manager to the trailer, ad he turned around and looked her straight in the eyes
" i want you to take these" he handed her some drugs
"no! i will never do that, its not me, sorry jack, i won't do it"
"your going to lose then, i hope you don't take it too hard"
jack left her and walked away some where, so she unloaded her bike by herself and walked it to the starting line, she saw he stadium filling up, she sighed and thought she would never find her dream man.
08-18-2004, 03:39 PM
Erin laughed. "Ok, but I gotta go now. Some guy just called and wants a pizza... and fast!"
She left the pizza place and drove to the designated address. She rang the doorbell and waited for the door to open. When it did, she said, "Delivery for Ian McRattle?"
Finally, she looked up and nearly jumped. As it was, she managed to stay calm. "Are you Mr. McRattle?"
Black Knight of Keno
08-18-2004, 03:51 PM
"Yes... Uh... Thank you" Ian said, staring at the woman. "Uh... You are the woman from my dreams...?" he said, speaking mostly to himself, but loud enought for her to hear. He took the pizza and looked the woman amazed
08-18-2004, 03:57 PM
Erin recovered from her surprise and laughed. "Only if you're the man in mine," she retorted. Then she told him how much the pizza would cost. She took the money and hurried to her car. Once she was inside it, she took a deep breath and called Vincent.
"You found the girl in your dream," she told him. "I think I just delivered a pizza to the man in mine."
Black Knight of Keno
08-18-2004, 04:05 PM
Ian payed and then watched the girl go into the car. He closed the door and leaned onto the door, hitting his head into it too. He jumped up and held his head. "Ow... Goddamnit" he cursed and then walked to the kitchen
08-18-2004, 04:28 PM
"****, I don't know wether that's good or bad. It could mean that I am going to cause the end of the world. Now, I don't know about you but I for one don't want that hanging over my head."
08-19-2004, 10:45 AM
Erin sighed. "The world explodes and my man dies in the explosions." She turned on her car and drove away. "I don't think these dreams show anything positive for any of us, wouldn't you agree?"
Black Knight of Keno
08-19-2004, 11:10 AM
Ian ran out from the door to see Erin drive away. He hoped he could get some answers from her. Now he lowered his gaze and walked back in. He looked the small commercial he got in mail on the top of a table. "If she works at the pizza place, she must head there soon" he said as a smile spread over his face. He grabbed a leather jacket and his car keys. He soon started his old Jaguar that he had painted and modified. He soon stopped his car next to the pizza place and went in to check if the girl would be there
08-19-2004, 11:13 AM
Erin finished making her deliveries and went back to the pizza place to wait for more to come in.
"Erin! Where were you? You've got more pizzas to deliver!" Her boss was nearly screaming at her. She moaned, reached for the pizzas and ran back out to her car.
"Where have I been?" she muttered. "What does he mean? I've been doing my job!"
She opened the trunk of her car and put the pizzas in. Then she paused. Why did she recognize that car?
Black Knight of Keno
08-19-2004, 11:42 AM
Ian looked around the place and then walked to the man behind the counter. "Sorry, but do you know hwo delivere my pizza to this address..." He said and slipped a note to him with his address "Maybe 18-19 years old, pretty looking, working around here, deliviring pizza's?" Ian continued and got a nod. "Yeah. Erin's her name. You could catch her if you run. The parking lot" the man answered after a check from the computer and Ian nodded. "Thank you very much" he said and ran out. He ran to the edge of the parking lot and looked around. He saw nobody. "Erin!?" he shouted as he kept looking, frightened on what would he really find. The truth? The ending of his dream? Or maybe the woman of his life... His destiny to stop the dreams from coming true. He looked around and then turned to leave and whispered to himself: "Erin... What a nice name..."
08-19-2004, 01:01 PM
"Not unless we can solve 'em. I'll pick you up at the pizza place once our shift's over"
08-19-2004, 04:39 PM
"So what, am I gonna have to tie you up for the rest of your life?" Erin laughed. "That's the only way I would know to prevent you from destroying the earth."
Erin nearly dropped her cell phone when someone yelled her name. Her eyes widened when she saw who it was. "Uh, Vince, I gotta go. Talk to you later!"
She walked to the driver's side door to open her trunk, acting as if she hadn't heard Ian call. It startled her that he would know her name. He must have talked to someone inside. She had just put the pizzas in the trunk when he called her again. In attempting to straighten up, she hit her head on the trunk's lid.
"Ouch!" she exclaimed. She slammed the lid down on the trunk and turned toward Ian, her hand on her head. "Something I can do for you?"
Black Knight of Keno
08-19-2004, 04:57 PM
Ian turned and saw Erin. He stepped forwards towards her and then another step. "Umh... I would like some answers, as you seem to have the some same parts from my dream..." He lowered his gaze and then rose his head to see Erin again. "...what happens to me?" he said after thinking a few seconds on what to say or ask. He walked towards Erin and looked at her. "Please tell me" he added before Erin could answer
08-19-2004, 05:11 PM
Erin's eyes widened. So this man had been having dreams as well. She wondered how much their dreams matched. Then, she shook her head.
"If we are going to talk about that, we have to wait," she said. "I'm working right now. I know your phone number, so I'll get back to you. Here's my cell phone number." She handed him a slip of paper, then got into her car.
"I'll talk to you later," she said quickly and shut the door. Then, before Ian could do anything else, Erin had started her car and backed out of the parking spot. Within seconds, she was driving toward another house to deliver another pizza.
08-20-2004, 12:30 AM
Jack came walking down onto the track and met jenn, he still wasn't happy
"look this is--"
"no jack, no"
"fine, get out on the track then, the race starts in 20 minutes, you need to talk to the press and people, go! now go!"
"ok ok, i'm going" Jenn headed down the track and immediatly press came up
"how do except to win this race?"
"what do you think of the new racer"
"is it true you started riding when you were 8?"
"well i plan to go fast and stay on my wheels, i think he is great and i will finaly get some challenge, and yes i started riding a bike when i was eight, but a dirt bike, no i did that when i was 10."
Black Knight of Keno
08-20-2004, 09:41 AM
"We'll talk later, then..." Ian muttered as Erin left. He walked to his car and started it. It made a huge noise as Ian put on some gas and then left with a small dust cloud after him. He soon got back home and rushed to his cell that was loading it's battery. Ian looked at the screen that lit up and showed the menu. "Come on. Tell me Erin has called..." he muttered and looked patiently. He saw nothing. Hr gave up and walked to the computer where he started to surf in the net, seeing many articles of the race. Ian got his cell and jacket, then left to the circle where the race was taking place. He still hoped that Erin would call him soon
08-20-2004, 01:28 PM
((A new charachter:
Name: Jack Cassidy
Occupation: Research Scientist
Bio: A scientis currently working on university campus. Vincent is currently helping him with his project, rumored to be a possible Nobel prize winner))
Vincent rushed to Jeff's house to pick him up, Jeff came out of the house. Jeff couldn't come, apparently an uncle had fallen sick somewehre outside of town and he had to go look out for him for awhile. After that he rushed to the university lab. He picked Jack up. He called the pizza place and asked the owner who Erin's last deliveries were. All of them were regulars except one, Ian. He quickly drove over to Ian's house and honked the horn in front of the house.
Black Knight of Keno
08-20-2004, 01:34 PM
Ian was driving off from his yard, but saw a car honking. Ian stopped his car and walked over to the car. "Yeah. What do you want?"
08-20-2004, 04:52 PM
"If you want to see Erin, get in."
08-20-2004, 08:52 PM
Jennifer went over to the start/finish line and hopped on her bike, she started it up and waited for the word to go, she put on her helmet and took out her lucky necklace and kissed it, he tucked it back in ther suit and focused on the track.
08-20-2004, 10:26 PM
Jack looked at his watch.
"We don't have time for this."
Jack left the car, pushed Ian in, and they quickly accelerated away towards the pizza place to pick up Erin.
08-21-2004, 02:56 PM
The stadium was almost filled, it was alot bigger then the stadium back home, the crowds were cheering, the announcer, announcing, lights flashing then, he shut everything out and focused on the red,green and yellow lights, flashed, red....then yellow......Green! and everyone flew out of the start everyone was close with jennifer close to being first, she went off a few jumps then slid around corners and moved into third place, she hit a ramp at full speed and jumped into second, it was her rival who was infornt of her, she had a hard time passing him, good thing there was 5 laps.
Black Knight of Keno
08-21-2004, 04:41 PM
Ian was pushed into the car. He muttered something as the car drove off. "So, we're picking Erin up, and then what?" he asked from Vincent
08-21-2004, 08:23 PM
Jack handed Ian his ticket.
"Hope you like bikes"
Vincent called Brad, and left a message to collect his ticket at the track.
08-29-2004, 11:55 AM
Erin sighed in frustration. She knew she would make everyone late to the race, but too many people had ordered pizza. Finally, she reached the last house, but there was no answer. She returned to her car, grumbling as she went.
"What kind of person orders a pizza and isn't there to pick it up?" she complained. She then drove back to the pizza place and hurried toward Vincent's car.
"Sorry I'm late," she apologised. "Some idiot wasn't there to buy her pizza. Normally, she does okay, but..." her words trailed off when she saw Ian.
08-29-2004, 02:35 PM
Once again Jack looked at his watch, and pulled Erin in.
"We don't have time for this, let's go!"
08-30-2004, 10:25 AM
Jennifer concentrated hard on pulling into first but her rival was just to good, she had a feeling he knew more about this track then he let on, she swirved around a corner falling into third but quickly came back into first, she was on the second lap out of four, she had to beat him, she had to or else her dream would come true, she fought hard and got close, she pushed him to the side, she had to win, even if she had to use violence.
08-30-2004, 10:39 AM
Vincent arrived to the stadium and parked quickly, he got out, helped the rest of them get out and ran to the stadium, Jack made sure the others kept up. Vincent quickly led them all to their seats.
Black Knight of Keno
09-01-2004, 08:06 AM
Ian couldn't help looking at Erin in the car. She just was so beautiful. Ian looked at Erin a little allso when they were running to their seats
09-01-2004, 08:13 AM
As luck (or some other coincidence) would have it, Erin and Ian ended up seated next to each other. Erin was slightly embarrased at her nervousness toward a man she didn't even know. He was clearly the man in her dream, but she was not entirely comfortable talking about that... Vincent was the only one who knew of her dream.

Jennifer pulled into first for a lap, it was the second last lap, she turned and drove hard, her rival close on her tail, he passed her on a corner and he went over a jump but he landed kind of bad, so jennifer went passed him, but someone from the pack bolted past her rival and her, she had no clue who he was, but didn't care, she had to win, she swirved around beside him, he took out a knife and threw it at her wheel, just as there were halfway through the last lap, he went over her handle bars and hit the ground hard, her bike went flying ont top of her, but she pushed it off and lay there, then she blacked out.

Erin's eyes widened. "That was cheap!" She had seen the knife and watched in a mix of horror and anger as Jennifer flipped over her bike's handlebars. Erin sighed.
"Cheap winner," she grumbled, glaring at the biker who was now in first.

Ian couldn't let out a small laught at Erins reaction. Ian was worried about the driver, as some medics ran across the track, but Erin just looked funny and cute at the time.
"You look cute when you get angry" he said, but didn't know if Erin could hear it behind all the shouting and cheering

the next thing Jennifer knew was she was inside the stadiums medical center, getting her cuts taken care of, and her head wrapped in a bandage.
"who won" she asked in a huhsed voice
"Tanim" said one of the nurses, jennifer let out a sigh of relief, it wasn't the guy who made her crash, her rival won, thankfully, she sat up, she felt slight pains but she could walk, she was fine, she noticed her arm was numb, but also in a cast.
"it'll come off in 2 weeks" one of the nurses said, jennifer nodded and walked out of the medical center, only to be crowded by press, she backed up and went back inside the center
"i think i need some more rest, i'd rather go through that crash again then deal with those press."
09-02-2004, 10:25 AM
Erin heard Ian's voice, but couldn't quite make out what he had said. She sat down again and turned to him. "What did you say?"

Ian leaned towards Erin and repeated. "I said that you look cute when you get angry"
09-03-2004, 11:01 AM
Erin blushed and turned away to prevent Ian from seeing it. Then, she turned back, doing her best to smile.
"Thank you, I think," she said. She fell into an awkward silence and stared back at the track, where she saw that the race was over.

Ian smiled and rose up from his seat. He looked quickly at Erin, still looking a bit awkward from his words. He smiled at her and then walked past her and to the stairs. He soon found himself drinking a Pepsi on a small bench. He had fund a vending machine and bought a small pepsi-bottle. He smiled as he saw Erin
09-03-2004, 11:17 AM
Erin walked over and sat down next to Ian. Her silence was awkward, but she finally turned to him.
"You're only the second person to know about this," she began. "I have a dream that wakes me up at 4 AM every morning. I absolutely hate it, but I can't get it to stop. I'm trying to escape from these explosions and I run into a building. The building is exploding too and there is fire all around me. Just when it seems like I'm going to die, somebody I don't know grabs me by the arm and pulls me through a door I hadn't noticed. It leads to stairs and somehow we end up in the sewer system."
She paused, noticing that Ian's face was slightly pale. "Is something wrong?"

Ian shook his head and stared forwards as he took another sip of his Pepsi. He then started. "I walk outside, when I see explosions. I back off inside a building, where I see a girl. I drag her to the lower levels of the house and then the explosions start again. I wake up..." he said quietly and slowly. Then he takes a long drink of his Pepsi and turns to Erin. "What happens to me in the end?" he whispered and stared at Erin into the eyes
09-03-2004, 11:38 AM
Erin had to remind herself to breathe. She and Ian had been having the same dream! The explosions, Ian dragging her underground... but that was where his dream ended. Hers continued for a little while, but she didn't have the heart to tell Ian what happened.
"I don't know," she lied, her voice tense. She avoided looking into his eyes, choosing to look at the things around her. "I wake up when the explosions start again and it's always 4 AM when I look at my clock."

Ian's face turned a little sad. His look slid down to the ground and then his head turned away from Erin. He sighed and took a sip of his Pepsi
09-03-2004, 11:47 AM
Erin slouched down in the bench. She hated lying, even to people she barely knew.
"An explosion separates us," she said, her voice low. "Then, it's almost like an explosion surrounds me... that's what wakes me up."

Ian sighed again. He looked his Pepsi bottle that was allmost empty. "You thristy?" he asked slowly and handed the bottle. He now looked at Erin again

Jack approached the two of them.
"You guys in the mood for food or a beer?"
09-05-2004, 03:47 PM
Jennifer got up, she looked aroudn only to see one nurse
"do you have a back door, or a secret exit, i hate the press, its cool for the first week or 2, then it gets annoying"
"no secret exit, but we have a back door, over there, you never heard it form me though".
"alright" Jennifer said and chuckled a bit then walked through, she pulled on a sweater and put the hood up, and walked over to the stadium, she sat in the empty seats, and sighed, she saw the spot where she had fell, she got up and went over to a small bar, a few people were at it, but her hair and sweater covered her face, she sat down and boughta beer.
09-05-2004, 04:04 PM
Vincent saw through her disguise, slipped a cap on to obscure his features more and slid into the seat next to her.
"Escaped from the doctors?"
09-05-2004, 06:08 PM
"indeed, sshh i'm not here, Jenn said as she finished her beer, she ordered another one, and started nursing that one
"you must have sharp eyes, i thought my hair and the hood would completely disguise me" jenn said in a hushed voice.
09-05-2004, 06:24 PM
"I've seen you a lot recently. " He half lied. "So what are you scared of now? Think your doctors will come into the bar for a drink?"
09-06-2004, 10:29 AM
"no doctors are fine, trying to not be found by the press, i frankly don't want to talk about the piece of sh*t who made me crash" Jennifer looked over passed him, to see Jack, she dropped her drink and gasped, she fell over her bar stool, and then got up and blushed.
"ummm, i-is he with you?" Jennifer said and pointed to Jack.
09-07-2004, 02:55 PM
Vincent took off the hat, revealing himself.. "Yeah, why?"
09-07-2004, 05:44 PM
(oops sorry, i thought jack was my dream man, my bad)
"oh, my gosh......um sorry, this is a little wierd for me, i - i uh, um well i have this dream, and you are the man in my dream, so um, yeah".
09-08-2004, 12:05 PM
Vincent sighed, he had hoped to ease the news into her, but now it was done. Jack raised an eyebrow "Am I missing something?" He asked. "Later" Said Vincent. He helped Jennifer up.
"Listen, this is important, I need to know what happened in your dream."
09-09-2004, 11:52 AM
i see you, and we get together and i guess we start dating, thne i have a race, i loose it, and i go and k-k-kill everyone"jennifer kept back some tears, but a few got through and she sniffed a little.
09-09-2004, 06:24 PM
"Listen. Don't worry we know that that's supposed to happen, but we're not gonna let it happen. Do you recognize the track on which you lose?"
