Night at the beach (logs)

The beach is a long expanse of land with various places to park, one must walk across the small rocks to get to the sand of the beach. The air is always cold and the sky is always gray but that does not stop those who wish to spend time upon the beach

Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 2:03 am Allison gazed out, across the water. Even int he poor light of the night, she could see for miles.. the water was calling her back again, but she had already had enough of a swim earlier and had only just finished letting her clothing dry as it hung from her frame.. It was such a hassle some times... She mused about gathering up the driftwood and starting a fire... just to see who might show up.


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 2:08 am After last night, Ruth considered just staying at home, to...watch twitch or something. The consideration didn't last long, and while she could just curl up in a ball somewhere and hide...that wasn't fun. And she could hide in plain sight anyway, so it all works out, she thought.


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 2:15 am A smidgen of inspiration strikes her and she smiles. Deciding to cast the net wide to see if she can draw in some late night troublemakers on the beach and begins to sing.. her voice carrying unnaturally well over the crashing of the waves. (sirens song passive effect)


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 2:20 am "The fuck?" Ruth turned her head towards where she thought the singing was coming from. Um...kay. Ruth started walking towards the source, might as well check it out she thought.


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 2:27 am It was a long, mournful song.. but it matched her feelings at the time, she let her eyes close as she gave herself into the song.*
Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 2:32 am (( here we go.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OEWl387q60 ))
Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 2:37 am (( well it works for mood anyways))


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 2:38 am It was quite a beautiful song, Ruth had to admit. She made her way to the source and was pretty surprised when she recognized the singer as the woman from the coffee place last night.


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 2:42 am *her eyes slide open as she ends her song, smiling to herself before she takes note of Ruth.* Hello again. *she smiles* Enjoying the night air?


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 2:48 am "Eh, yea," Ruth responded, still a bit confused. "That was pretty good...were you just singing anything, or was that a particular song?"


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 2:52 am Ah, its a song I like a lot.. *she chuckles* Youtube is a wonderful thing... I may not speak the language.. but I do like how it sounds in certain music. *she sighs and stretches* I like to sing a lot.. not professionally mind you.. but it has been helpful to me in many ways.


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 3:01 am "Heh, I'm much the same way, actually," she says with a smile. "Well, depends on the song," she then admits. "So yea, how was the coffee?"


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 3:03 am It was decent *she chuckles* It hit the spot at the very least. *she smiles again* Sorry I left so abruptly last night.. couldn't be helped... we hardly got to say more than a few words to each other.


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 3:08 am "It was probably for the best," Ruth muttered as she thought about the weird kid. "The conversation got kinda boring anyway."


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 3:11 am ah.. *she nods* sorry to hear that... *chuckles* though I dont exactly have much to say that is interesting either... unless you like swimming too


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 3:15 am Yeaaa, no reason to expose the kid, Ruth thought, even though he worried her. "Not at night," she admitted. "Just listening to the waves is nice enough."


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 3:19 am *chuckles* Of course not at night.. it is dangerous to do that... *she nods* the sound is a soothing one... helps me relax after a stressful day at work.


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 3:20 am "Hmm, yea...what do you do, if you don't mind me asking?"


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 3:24 am Ah.. I'm a social worker. *she smiles a bit* I mostly work with foster children... you know.. make sure they're getting treated well and such.


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 3:25 am "Oh, that's nice," Ruth says with a smile.


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 3:25 am *she looks off into the sea* I Guess it's fitting.. since I was in that situation myself... I know how it can be.. good and bad.


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 3:28 am Ruth just nods, knowing a tough subject when she hears one, and she liked this woman so she wasn't going to push anything.


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 3:29 am *she sighs and shrugs it off* How about you? What do you do? *she smiles*


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 3:31 am "Not sure yet," Ruth says with a shrug. "Not a fucking housewife, that's for fucking sure."


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 3:33 am *she laughs* Staying at home all day grinds on your nerves too much I take it?


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 3:38 am "You have no idea. How about being told for most of your childhood that was the destiny God had in mind for you?" Ruth huffed and stared back out into the ocean. "Sorry, you didn't need that. You hear it enough, and I'm out of it at least."


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 3:43 am *she grimaced and nodded silently for a moment* We make our own destinies... *she smiled sadly* its good to hear you escaped that kind of life. *she wasn;t about to bring up her own. After all, it isn't a competition to see who had the worst childhood* Still if you need to talk.. my ears are open.. *she smiles*


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 3:51 am "Eh...not tonight," Ruth eventually said over the calming uncaring waves. "I'm just trying to be here."


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 3:55 am *she nods* I understand *then looks back out to the waters. tsking as she spies a bit of trash floating along..* Decades of telling people not to litter.. and you still get trash everywhere...


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 3:59 am "Buncha Morons," Ruth muttered as she pulled her knees to her chest.


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 4:02 am I think ..most.. people have forgotten how to listen.. to the lessons the world teaches them. *she says idly* Until the consequences come and smack them in the face.


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 4:06 am Ruth looked over at the woman, wondering about her philosophy spouting. "And what if those lessons are full of shit?" That you do everything you're told and still end up in a shit place?"


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 4:08 am "If the lessons are shit.. then find a better teacher." *she shrugs* Not listening and obeying are two different things.
Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 4:09 am Besides.. some lessons are monuments to 'how not to do things' even if they don't realize they are that sort of lesson.
Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 4:14 am Bah! *she chuckles* look at me... I think I took too many philosphy courses..


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 4:17 am "Hmph." Ruth's gaze grew harder, it seemed, not at all convinced. "Yea...lucky you." Ruth signed quietly before her tone shifted. She wasn't an enemy. "No really, that is nice. School is always nice."


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 4:22 am *she nods* school is nice.. the debt.. not so much *chuckles*


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 4:28 am "Heh, yea," Ruth chuckled.


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 4:31 am And don't even get me started on buying the books! Half the time you spend hundreds of dollars.. and can't even get your money back at the end of the year! *she laughed and shook her head*


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 4:40 am "Yea, just a black hole for money and time that's not even worth it, if you believe the news," she scoffed.

"I miss it."


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 4:46 am The news says a lot of things, but they only tell part of the story.. whatever is more sensational.. rather than being helpful. *she nods and frowns, opting to sit down beside ruth* You miss school? *she apused* I know the feeling sometimes... when I was little, it was my only escape for a time...


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 4:49 am "Yea...same. The only place I could even try to be myself. Turns out I'm a bit of an asshole," she adds with a shrug and a smirk. "Know any good bars with Karaoke?"


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 4:52 am *chuckles* not yet, still fairly new to the city. *she grins* Everyone is a bit of an asshole.... some are just better at admiting it.


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 4:54 am "Well, we should find one sometime," Ruth said as she digs out her phone. "I should head home, but one of these nights. How about it?"


Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 4:56 am *she pulls out her phone as well and smiles* Sure thing.. we can knock em all dead.


Ruth LeHaye:
14 | 09/10/2016 4:59 am ((Shall we end it here?))
Allison Smith:
17 | 09/10/2016 4:59 am ((sure =)
