His mother died when he was ten years old, and ever since then, his mindset was to take care of the family. Since he came from a family of hunters, he had learned how to be handy with a gun at a very young age. With this personality being his biggest, he took it further and pursued a career as a police officer. Reed will do anything and everything to make sure nothing happens to his family, nor the citizens of Greensville. Or he’ll die trying.

Harry is a quiet kid, which is odd coming from a loud family. Throughout all his siblings, Harry feels as if he had been impacted by his mother’s death the worst. He was the closest to her out of all of them. Her little boy. He was seven years old when she passed away, and he was never able to get over it. He hadn’t spoken a word since her death. Not one word. Nothing. If he feels the need to speak, he uses his handy notebook that he brings along with him everywhere. But usually, he doesn’t speak at all, not even through writing. Harry spends his time hunting, to get away from the hurt and the pain. He would go with his siblings and father, but sometimes, he would go alone. It was the way he would grieve. Harry now walks through the world quiet, alone and without a sense of guidance or direction. He’s a lost soul. Will he ever be found?

He agrees, but knows that no one will want to be friends with him. While he tries to take a break from everything, he begins to notice things he never noticed before. For example, when he was focusing on his plans, he never noticed how many people actually attended the same school as him. Sure, he had an idea of how many kids went to the school, but he never really took the time to notice it. Also, he never noticed a particular upperclassman girl. When he was too busy with his things, he never noticed Sam. To Elijah, she was beautiful and amazing. She didn’t care what others thought about her and wasn’t afraid to be herself. That amazed Eli and he became infatuated with her. He never had the nerve to talk to her before because he was too afraid he’d make a fool of himself. But in his mind he figures if he does embarrass himself, he could just use his invention to turn back time and try again.

Mr. Paul Kinchen | Joesph Gordon-Levitt | 32 | World Studies | Open
Mr. Kinchen’s classroom is that one that you can hear from down the hallway. He loves to put emphasis on what he says. He yells it as loud as he can to get his point across. He’s so passionate about the history of the world, that he wants all of his students to be able to feel the same way. And when he’s not in the classroom, he’s at home, where he dreams of building a boat on his own and sailing across the ocean. When he tells others, they simply laugh at him. His physical appearance doesn’t seem to coincide with his dreams. The vests, the ties, and the dimples in his cheeks don’t go along with the dream of sailing the seas like a mythical god would do. But he doesn’t mind the disapproving thoughts from others. All the negativity goes to the shock that everyone else will have when he travels the world and fulfills his own dreams.

They see that their son is happy and that is all that matters, no matter the cost. But what would happen if his parents were to find out about his name in school? And also, what would have been if he’s was to start falling for a girl close to him?

George Smithers | Matthew Lewis | 18 | Senior | Open

But everything changed once he returned for senior year. Over the summer, he had gotten braces to rid of his massive overbite, and he had grown out of his awkward stage. He was now attractive. More than attractive. George Smithers was hot. All the girls, the same girls who had ridiculed him years passed, hung all over him, vying for his attention. Flirting with him. He wasn’t used to this. He was angered and saddened that he was only getting attention for his looks. He didn’t even believe himself to be that attractive.

He could squirt milk out of his eye. He considers that his most prized talent. He doesn’t understand that whenever he walks away, they laugh about him behind his back. It’s not even only to his back.

Greg believes that because of that, it must mean that he’s incredibly popular. Too bad that’s far from the truth.
