Just what does this Theme Park have to offer? That is up to all of you.
Alice had heard that was a wonderful theme park, and was curious to see what it had to offer. It certainly sounded exciting and so, one day she set off to see the park for herself and to explore it. It didn't occur to her that it might be a bit worrisome to her family for her to go on her own. It was, after all a weekend so there wasn't any school to worry and while it would have been more fun with friends, she hadn't been able to reach any of them that morning so she set off on her own.
It was sometime before she reached the park itself, but it was a lovely autumn day out, not too cold and rather a bit like a lingering summer. The trip while it was long and a bit of an adventure in itself wasn't especially worth putting down her, and in any event she reached her destination without real serious problems.
As she neared the gates to the park, with the ticket booths and such visible though the morning mist though the park itself was still mostly shrouded making it all the more mysterious. Before going to purchase a ticket she looked about cautiously to see if there was other people about as well, patrons, employees etc. Not that she was scared or anything but it was a bit mysterious and quiet and she wanted to make sure it was perfectly safe, just in case.
Mary looked up and saw her friend Alice from school and smiled.
"Hey!" She said waving to her as she walked over to Alice. "So you are here as well? It's really exciting isn't it?"
She nodded towards the mist shrouded park.
"So mysterious," She continued, "Like something out of a fairy tale, well should we see about getting tickets?"
She took Alice's hand and led her cheerfully in that direction, glad that she would have a friend to explore the park with.
Alice was happy to see Mary and to have a friend with her. She took her cheerful friend's hand gladly and allowed her to lead her to where the tickets were being sold. It was a strange feeling to be so far away from home, surrounded mostly by strangers, and yet to feel a sense of serenity and peace here. Perhaps it was simply the chance to try something different and new for the first time, or perhaps it was the comforting presence of her friend, but Alice did not feel nearly so frightened as she might have done, had she been alone. It was a bit odd that she had not been able to contact Mary earlier, but then again reception had been a bit spotty this morning and had only gotten worse as she'd gotten closer to the park, perhaps due to all the structures and rides causing some sort of interference, though that didn't seem very likely an explanation, it was all she could think of to explain it at the moment as she knew her phone was in working order and properly charged.
In any event, she resolved to put the matter aside for the moment and to enjoy herself, she wondered if anybody else might turn up that they knew, or if they might even make new friends in this mysterious place. One never knew after all...
Mary for her part was happy that Alice had happened to turn up and also excited to explore the park. It had been talked about a bit in school when it was opened, but she hadn't known anyone from their class that had really gone yet personally so the park itself was a mystery and there was much speculation within the student body as to what it had to offer.
She smiled a bit as she thought back on that while they were making their way to the ticket stand.
There had even been rumors, silly ones she felt, that the mysterious park was haunted! That though was just in keeping with the Halloween season she felt sure.
Besides, she thought to herself, even if it was true there was no way that spooky old ghosts would come out on a morning like this, weren't they only meant to come at night? She wasn't sure but she'd heard a few ghost stories as a little one and they had always revolved around spooky locations at the midnight hour or some such.
Shaking herself free of her silly musing thoughts, she continued on to the ticket stand with Alice, anxious to see what lay beyond the gates to the park for herself!
Alice stopped for a moment and gripped Mary's hand a bit tighter. She had heard some of the whispered stories in class. She hadn't gotten a chance to ask Mary about it at the time and was a bit shy to bring it up, since she didn't want her friend to think her foolish. Now though as they got near to the park gates she wanted to stop for a moment and talk it over with her friend.
"Mary," she began softly. "You remember what some of the others were saying in class the other day about the park. Those stories..."
She trailed off and looked down shifting her feet a bit and blushing.
"Y-you don't believe they are true or anything do you Mary?" She asked looking back up at her friend with a timid confused look in her eyes. "About the park being haunted?"
Mary stopped when Alice did and turned to listen to her friend, smiling gently at the questions and holding Alice's hand reassuringly while Alice expressed her questions about the park and possible ghostly inhabitants.
"I'm sure it's just stories Alice," She said brightly when her friend had finished. She paused and then after a moment added more quietly, "I'm... I'm not sure if there are any ghosts I admit, but even if there are we are together and I think ghosts are only usually meant to come after dark, right? So since we are here in the daytime we should be all right."
She didn't sound quite so sure about that last bit but after all the way they had come to the park it seemed a shame not to explore it.
"And there are probably lots of people around in there, grown ups and stuff," She added. "I don't think even the spookiest of ghosts would want to come out when all those people were about, after all you never really hear stories where ghosts come when there's loads of people, usually only when it's just one or two or something, and if anything does happen the grown ups will know what to do."
She gave her friend's hand a reassuring squeeze and waited, after all she didn't want Alice to go anywhere she might be frightened, the day was supposed to be a fun adventure.
Alice felt a bit better after Mary gave her hand a squeeze and explained to her about the park and ghosts. She held onto her friend's hand tightly and looked up at the mysterious park.
"It's so much bigger then when you see parks and stuff on a screen, or imagine them or something." She gave a soft little sigh and then a timid smile. "Maybe that's a good sign?"
She asked that last to Mary with a hopeful kind of look in her eyes.
Tanya had heard about this park and that it had ghosts. It struck her interest, the ghost part, not the Amusement part. Tanya found the Supernatural fascinating after all nothing could explain her own condition except for the supernatural.
Tanya spotted a couple of girls heading toward the amusement park to buy tickets. Well she was too, and groups were always better, right? At least the ghosts if there were any would get a nice feast instead of a snack if they stuck together. But Tanya hoped it would mean they'd look for easier prey. Tanya wasn't about to let ghosts take her down. Surely there already plenty of them that already haunting her if ghosts were real, that is.
Tanya noticed the girls had suddenly stopped so she approached them she noted they were having a conversation, but would they take note of her unless she interrupted? Judging by their expressions they seemed to be comforting each other. Well no time like the present then, they may be glad to have a friendly hello. She needed to cheer them up, Tanya decided.
"Hello there," Tanya beamed, "Are you hear to enjoy the Amusement park too?" She laughed cheerfully as she asked. In truth she was in a good mood, just about the ghosts because it was possibly something new. Still the rides would provide some exhilaration if the ghost turned out to be only rumors. So she was as excited as she appeared because some fun was to be had, and the more people you knew, the better, especially if they became friends.
Hurry, hurry come play with me in RoleplayNation and lets have fun together
Mary was just about to answer Alice when she heard a new voice and looked up curiously to see another girl approaching them. She seemed a kind cheerful sort and if Tanya had plans other then to simply enjoy the park, Mary did not suspect it.
"Oh!" She said then smiled timidly. "Yes, I suppose we are. I'm Mary and this is my friend Alice, we are new here so this is our first visit to the park. Is this your first visit?"
She held onto Alice's hand firmly as she did so and gave her friend's hand a little squeeze to show that everything was okay and not to be shy around the new arrival. She wasn't sure if the other girl had heard them talking about ghosts and blushed a bit hoping that she had not.
Tanya nods, so they were friends. Tanya felt like she was intruding, but her young tender age of 12 probably helped her excuse the intrusion. Still to Tanya who was much mature then a 12 year old felt as if she had just overstepped especially after seeing how Mary had reacted. But it was far too late now, it was to pretend like you had done nothing wrong in these situations and move forward because it was quite possible that the other hoped you hadn't read their body language.
"Yes," Tanya smiled lightly, "This is my first time going, it'll be fun to have it as a first with someone else too. Everything is always funner in a group, don't you agree Mary? Oh, I'm Tanya." Tanya realized she hadn't introduced herself, but casually interacting was still a skill she knew was lacking in. She had spent too much time on the field with her soldiers or in meeting with the Brass. It wasn't the same at all. The landmines and etiquette or perhaps is lack of the latter were completely different and now seemed alien despite her apparent age.
Alice looked a little shy and was great full for Mary's reassuring words. She smiled timidly at Tanya and ventured a shy little wave. The new girl seemed very excited about the park and generally a happy cheerful sort. Alice trusted Mary's judgement about things so if she had decided to be friendly then surely this new girl should be welcomed.
All the same she kept a hold of Mary's hand and kept an eye out, it was not this new girl Tanya she was worried about though, rather it was the prospect that maybe they really might see a ghost or something today! But Tanya had tole Mary that everything was more fun with a group, maybe it was safer as well? She guessed she would find out. For now she remained quiet since was not addressed directly and let Mary and Tanya talk while she gazed up at the park with a mixture of wonder and perhaps a little shyness.
Mary smiled at Tanya and noticed Alice's little wave, proud that her friend was being a bit less shy, she tended to be a bit quiet when meeting new people sometimes.
"Oh yes I agree, Tanya," Said Mary with a cheerful nod. "And it's nice to meet you as well. We were just going to get our tickets and head in, won't you join us?"
She politely motioned for Tanya to lead the way, this was mostly due to the fact that she knew Alice would be a bit more comfortable if she could have a chance to observe Tanya as they walked without feeling it was intrusive and also because she needed to keep hold of Alice's hand which would be easier if she had Tanya in front to help guide them.
Mary briefly wondered if Tanya had heard anything of what she had been talking about with Alice, but dismissed it and blushed a bit glad that their new companion had not heard the two friends talking about such childish nonsense as ghosts. What on earth would she have thought of them then?
