Extraordinary

Thomas Summer Academy. It sounds ordinary, right? Like nothing extraordinary ever happened there? If that's what you think, then you're horribly wrong.

Faye Maed||15||FC: Madeline Carroll||Open Taken

In her eyes, her life was the ideal -the key word in that statement being was. Up until her fifteenth birthday, Faye Maed was a little ball of sunshine. She had two adoring parents and an older brother who was nearly her best friend. They went to church on Sundays, ate dinner together at six sharp every night, and had a nice little house with a white picket fence. Her life was the piece in the typical tiny darling town where everyone knew each other and there was no need to lock any doors at night. She was a Daddy’s girl to no extent, just like every other daughter in the town. On her fifteenth birthday, she went to sleep as any other night with a grin on her face. But that grin dropped as soon as she closed her eyes. She had a dream -no, a nightmare. She saw years of abuse, fighting, screaming, but what made it all worse she saw it as herself. She saw it through her own eyes in her own home. It couldn’t be true, or, at least, she hoped it couldn’t be. That would mean her life was a lie. She tried to ignore it, but it happened again the very next night. She saw more bruises made and tears shed. When she finally confronted her parents she found out that it was true and that her entire life up until then was a planned out act. She got sent to Paris to deal with the developed insomnia she’d encountered. She didn’t want any more memories, therefore she didn’t want any more sleep. Even after the heartache, she managed to keep a smile on her face and an optimistic point of view on the rest of the world. She’s rather quiet and shy, but after warming up, she’s the same old Faye again.

Aaron Nichols||16||FC: Lucas Till||Open Taken

Aaron is one of those boys who had everything and nothing at the same time. He could get any girl he could ever want with one of his signature winks and a smile. That’s all it took, and the girls were putty in his hands, all stuttery, blushing messes. But, at home, it was absolutely nothing like that. Aaron had five siblings, two older sisters, a younger brother, and two younger sisters. So, naturally, he didn’t get that much attention. Not that he was complaining. Aaron didn’t like getting attention at home. In fact, he believed that he didn’t deserve any of it. His sisters and brother needed it much more, so he backed off to help them achieve their goals for attention. He was able to deal with this at home, but not at school. Every girl was required to know his name. That’s why it surprised Aaron when Jordan Kyle transferred over to his school, his views began to change. She had no idea who this ‘Aaron Nichols’ was, and she didn’t want to know him, either. But Aaron wanted her. It was the thrill of the chase that he craved, and that’s exactly whay she provided for him. Some girls opposed him, but they always gave in. Aaron had began to lose hope on Jordan giving in, as it took her much longer to react to his many attempts at making her swoon. But, like all girls, she finally did. They dated for months, and Aaron thought he was in love. He’d never felt this way about anyone. All giggly with sweaty palms. Jordan could always make him laugh. Always. Until one night. Aaron was walking Jordan home from his house and they were crossing the street. Jordan had dropped her wallet, and she ran back to get it. Just then, a speeding car shot through and hit her head-on, killing her instantly. Jordan saw the whole thing, even though he told everyone that he hadn’t. He blames himself for the incident. He should have gone to get her wallet. He should be the one buried under the ground right now, not Jordan. That night, he swore he’d never date again. Yeah, he knew that he was lying to himself, but it was the only thing running through his mind while sleep never came. He’s developed PTSD and insomnia since then, and, yeah, he’s dated other girls. But none were Jordan.

Poppy Herron||18||FC: Alexandra Breckenridge||Open Taken

Numb. That’s how someone actually in her life would describe her. Anyone else? Poppy Herron. Wasn’t that Craig Bigwell’s girlfriend—well, ex-girlfriend now? Wait, no, isn’t that the slut who spends a different night blowing two guys from each club in the school? Didn’t she get shipped from the country because she tried to go down on the officer that pulled her over for speeding? Didn’t she cheat and break Craig’s heart? Oh wait, no. It was reversed. Who’d recognize her anyways with her head tucked between someone new’s legs every night? Maybe she had left because she’d run out of customers? Whatever, still a whore. That was Poppy Herron in the eye of the public and she resented that. That wasn’t who she was. Then again, she didn’t even know who she was. She knew what she used to be. She used to be a tiny girl with bright eyes and an even brighter view on the world. She had her devious moments and would weasel herself out of blame for as she grinned sweetly at her parents and batted her long lashes. She was so care-free and excited for nothing ane everything. She played with dolls and rode her scooter to the park to play on weekends. She helped her mother garden and sang along to the Disney princess movies. Where was that girl? Oh yeah, hidden behind that dark cloud of heartbreak, depression, and that empty void she had digging at her heart. She figured she lost that when she moved. She lost that after her world shattered. Who even ends up with the guy you met and started “dating” in seventh grade? Why did she think she ever could? Oh right, that tiny glimpse of the girl she used to know stopping by. That child that completely left after being cheated and played. She was depressed and searched for only a physical type of companionship to fill her empty soul. What a cliche she was, what a pathetic excuse she proceeded to live aa. That’s why she came to Paris, to help herself. She is escaping the burden of the dimmed sun and bitter world she used to witness and finding a new hope for life.

Stevie Cantwell||18||FC: Kat Dennings||Open Taken

Stevie Cantwell wanted to find herself. She was still trying, up until this day. It was never anything for someone else, her life was perfectly fine. She had two loving parents, a writer and photographer. She had an older sister who was in law school, an older brother just started at university, a younger sister who was the president of her seventh grade art club, and last, but not least, a four year old brother in preschool. She had different friends as the years went on. She did well in school and was in several extra curricular activities throughout her life. She was never ignored or unloved, she wasn’t bullied at school, there was no trauma -as stated before, her life was perfectly fine. She went through everything for her, for nothing but her own insecurities. Stevie’s parents just told her to express herself, no matter where she ends up in life they’d love her unconditionally. That was the problem. She couldn’t express herself. She didn’t know who ‘herself’ was. That’s where the anxiety kicked in for her; in the search for the personality she thought she needed. She was terrified she’d never reach that standard that didn’t exist. She was scared she’d disappoint her parents. It was impossible, not that it mattered to her. She started to watch everything she did. She wanted to be judged and pushed in the right direction. Stevie began to crave the authority that would show what her parents wanted, but she never received it. Each phase she had started to become a familiar loop in the family that went unrecognized.

Aria Ramos||17||FC: Demi Lovato||Open Taken

Aria Ramos, a name typically paired with her twin sister as the child of a baby murderer. If you witnessed any type of news cast you knew exactly who she was. Aria was daughter of Kathryn Ramos, a woman who murdered her three year old daughter on the night of February 24, 2011. Before the incident, Aria was one of the most outgoing girls in her tiny town, the partner in crime to her fraternal twin Aracelli. After the traumatic experience, both girls became rather shut off, only associating openly with each other and trying to avoid as much attention as possible. Aria was targeted by many media outlets as the one who made the 911 call the night that it was noticed that Riley had gone missing. Her mother was polled as the most hated woman in America and Aria and Aracelli became known as the daughters of Satan. Aria was clueless to the whereabouts or reasoning to her mother’s actions, yet she was still questioned every chance they got. As well as her sister, she developed a form of separation anxiety towards Aracelli and a fear of trust. If her own mother was so twisted, what was the chance that the next person she met wouldn’t try to hurt her or her sister? She and her sister are very protective of one another, especially when new people are introduced into their life. She hated the idea of coming to Paris and attending a new school as enrolled by a set of grandparents she’d hardly met before. She just wants everything to go back to how it was, despite the fact that it’s impossible.

Emeline Murphy||18||FC: Jennifer Lawrence||Open Taken

Emeline Murphy was in the normal percentile of the high schoolers of America. She was one of the invisibles. She was never in any clubs, never went to many parties, knew all the popular kids from kindergarten classes when social status wasn’t important. Emmie was typical in her eyes; sarcastic, awkward, random, funny, lazy, all of it. She was a teenager and that was that. She was insecure, but still had her beaming moments. She was the poster girl for all those in-between students, the ones who weren’t losers nor popular. She was in Paris for a new adventure. After her best friend moved away, Emmie’s mother noticed how anti-social her daughter really was. She didn’t really get a new best friend, just a few acquaintances that she spoke to online. She was less loud and eccentric than usual. She’d always been intrigued by Paris, which gave her parents the idea for the trip. Mr. and Mrs. Murphy enrolled her in the school the following week and sent her on her way with a camera and a packed bag. They wanted to help Emeline meet new friends and maybe even a new love interest, despite her personality that wasn’t great at making new friends.
