Who: Jaden and OPEN What: Going out for Halloween Where: Concert/Club When: Halloween Night Rating: Low (probably)
He had thought long and hard about what to wear. He didn't really want to stand out, but he knew that no costume would probably stand out just as much as a flamboyant costume. That being said, he also wanted to make sure that if he didn't enjoy this, he wouldn't be noticed leaving. Eventually he sat down and watched a few internet videos on simple costumes and landed on ninja. Simple to make, and an always acceptable costume. The thing he liked most about it was the fact that he would be in all black, so he could move at full speed and just seem like a shadow. It also provided an easy escape in case he felt too nervous, for it could cover his face to let him not look as nervous as he probably was going to be. His body seemed to be vibrating due to his racing heart. He took a last look at himself in the mirror. He donned a thin, slightly tight fitting black shirt, black cargo pants, and black shoes. He then followed the videos instructions to make a mask that covered his face and neck, but he chose to leave his hair visible. He remembered a character from somewhere, and also felt like he should take a little effort in the endeavor. He used some makeup he bought earlier to give himself a scar across one of his eyes. When he was done, he was satisfied with his appearance. He wondered if that girl, Eden would be there, or at least someone he might know from school. He really hoped so, for he really wasn't sure how to even begin talking to someone new at something like this.
He called to his parents that he was going who called back giving him a time to be back. His mother seemed to be a bit on edge about him going out, but she still told him to have a good time. He dodged a few kids on his way to a good dark place where he could set off. The moment he did, he smiled. Along with the sensation of going full speed and no one thinking anything of it due to the fact that he was all in black causing the desired effect of seeming like a shadow, he also had a thought flash through his head. Ninja Vanish.
When he arrived at the place he was told about, he slowed to a stop in a nearby abandoned alley. He then walked out as casually as his body would allow. If his heart was racing before, it was nothing compared to this moment. In truth, he had the urge to just go back home. He stood staring at the entrance where a guy was tagging people who were of age to drink with a bracelet, like the one you would get at a theme park. His heart was beating ridiculously fast. He was trembling with anticipation, and his fight or flight response was yelling at him to get the Hell out and just do something else. Go for a run even. He managed to make it to this place without any real notice, so what's to stop him from continuing on? His mind was in such deep thought that he hadn't even noticed the person come up from behind him.
