Scene Information:
Sun dappled trees surround you, with the rare clearing. The ground is littered with the auburn, crimson, chocolate and orange leaves. It's fairly silent, except for anyone moving and the occasional bird chirping, but no nests have been built, in fact, these are the stragglers that are migrating before the cold sets in.


Character Information:

Andrew is a 14 year old kid who feels extremely in tune with nature, he loves to be outdoors and relishes any chance he gets, however he often runs off from his family in order to find little treasure troves of quiet, and therefore he's been labelled as either a rebel or overly childish. His parents have began to be accustomed to all this though, and while he would still have to promise a time he'd be back by, they usually don't worry otherwise. Andrew's sister, Marie, is only 8, but loves the indoors, and sometimes is considered a polar opposite to her brother.


End of information, RP begins

Standing on a trunk of an old yew, Andy looked towards the west, where the sun had just started rising. "Good day today." he said aloud to himself, as he grabbed a few berries that he knew were safe from experience, gathering a few before popping them into his mouth. He was slightly surprised he hadn't seen any squirrels, though perhaps he was being slightly too loud today. Sometimes he'd be able to give them acorns if he was careful, and that was a sight to see.

Noting a peculiar smell in the air, Andrew looked about. He felt tense, and something didn't seem right at all, though he couldn't figure out what. He looked at the animals, and they weren't fleeing, so he could hardly think it was environmental, so shrugged it off, and decided he must just be imagining things.

Reese is a plucky child of 11 years who thinks life is too mundane without a bit of imagination. He has the bad habit of constantly daydreaming and making situations seem more than they actually are. When he's bored, he adds his own touch of magic and wonder, turning his whole life into one great adventure. He can get a bit violent without meaning to, but otherwise, he's a mellow person. Still very young, his trust is almost without end, and he'll believe any story someone tells him, unless it's too ridiculous. These attributes are quite unfitting for someone who lives in the city, but he's managed to get by since he's a kid.

-End of Character Information-

---

It was strange being surrounded by trees and wildlife. Where he would usually see towering metal buildings, he now saw trees that stretched up to the skies, some colored leaves still holding onto their branches. It was strange, but not unpleasant. He quite liked the differences, in fact. It was as if this wilderness was a new land for him to conquer, when in actuality, Reese was only here with his family for a short while. The thought of leaving this place unexplored unsettled Reese greatly. He picked up a fallen stick, which was to be his quest weapon. With one last glance at the house behind him, he slipped away, trudging into the forest without a care in the world.

Squirrels skittered past him, paying him no attention even as he craned his neck to stare at them as they passed by. These squirrels were much bolder than the ones in the city; one even almost ran over his shoes. Watching them, Reese eventually stopped walking. They all seemed to be heading in the same direction. Perhaps they were running from a giant troll that was terrorizing their villages? How horrible! Reese turned in the direction that some of the squirrels had come from, and began his journey again with a sense of purpose, his feet deliberately kicking up piles of leaves.

Eventually, he arrived at a clearing and stopped to figure out which direction his house was. He had gotten lost before, but he was getting much better at finding his way again. One of the tricks to it was to mark significant places that he would remember again later on. Reese bent down and brushed away some of the leaves, not minding the dirt getting on his hands. He drew an arrow pointing in the general direction of his house with the stick and stood up again, stretching.

How had he failed to notice the older boy in the clearing with him? Reese stared at the boy, narrowing his eyes in an exaggerated manner. Perhaps this was the troll terrorizing those poor poor squirrels.

Reese jumped back, waving his stick in the air wildly as he exclaimed, "Get back, you monster! I, Reese, will destroy you in the name of, uhhh, the squirrels!" And with that, he burst into laughter at his own silly actions.

Andrew had continued to ponder what life would still be nearby as he glanced around, practically being stuck in a trance, before being broken out of his reverie when he heard a shouting. He blinked slowly as the sight in front of him sunk in, before he exploded with laughter himself. The kid looked to be younger than him, but definitely seemed to have an imagination. Deciding to play along, he squinted his eyes before beating his chest like an ape.

"You no beat me! I shall take all squirrels and make them go from here!" he grunted, before waiting for the kid's reaction, not caring if he looked like a total maniac.

Reese stepped back a bit, a taken aback expression on his face as he gasped loudly. He held out his makeshift legendary sword and brandished it, trying to make himself seem as big as possible. It wasn't much considering he was a little child.

"Be warned, ugly troll! With this sword of mine, I shall defend the squirrel kingdom with all my honor!" Reese called out, rushing forward with the stick raised in the air. Suddenly, his foot caught on a rock, sending him falling so quickly, he could barely put out his arms in time to break his fall. He tumbled, scraping his elbows and landing facedown in the undergrowth.

He scrambled upright, but couldn't find the strength to quite get up onto his feet. The scrapes on his elbows burned as he craned his neck to try and see the damage. With a small sniffle, he realized he was starting to cry. That was ridiculous! Heroes didn't cry in front of trolls that couldn't even speak proper English. He gave a loud sniff before wiping his tears away and glared up at the boy across from him.

"Ha! That was a smart trick, making me fall over that rock! But I'll still defeat you!" he declared before adding in a small voice, "...after I get a band-aid."
