Name: Amber Belle Cambridge (or ABC or Amber or Belle or Cambridge)
Gender: Female
Age: 17
Appearance: Curly brown hair which comes to her shoulder. She has hazel eyes set in an oval face. Her skin is olive. She wears her hair in a bun when her father is home but when he leaves for work, she lets it down loose. She is very slim, 5ft 2in and weighs only 100 pounds.
Personality: Amber loves adventure! But with her father under pressure at his work in politics, especially since the death of Abraham Lincoln, she has had to act like a lady, which means no adventures with her best friend. She is intelligent but has not had the opportunity to show her true worth as her parents have suppressed her by making her learn needlework and cooking.
Other: Her best friend is a farmhand called Thomas. He is a lower class citizen but that doesn't matter to Amber, she feels he is equal to her. Thomas is 18 and he is wise for his age, having had to live for himself being an orphan. Her father works in politics and President Lincoln was a dear friend of his. Her mother is a housewife. They live on the family farm but her father leaves for business for long periods at a time, so Thomas looks after the farm.

I started it off, hope you don't mine Carly D:

Nathanial and I wobbled along in our carriage, as it moved side to side. My parents were leading the horses and we were inside guarding the luggage. Bandits seemed to come from nowhere nowadays. We were moving again, to the newest gold mine that had been discovered. My dad was a miner, and we had to move almost every other month. That's why my brother was my only best friend. The road seemed endless, never seeming to stop. I sat and looked out at the view as we rode onto another new adventure.

Name: Alexia Dempsey
Gender: Female
Age: 16
Appearance: Long, straight, auburn hair that she keeps tied back. A sprinkling of freckles on her cheeks, nose, and forehead. She is average in height and looks.
Personality: Strong-willed, her temper can get the best of her, but she tries her best. She's a bit of a tomboy, to her parents' frustration.
Other: She is the youngest of four, and the only girl in the family. She gets along well with her brothers, who largely accept her desire to follow along and play the same games as them.
Her father had a prosperous store back east, and recently moved the family to California in hopes of starting an even more profitable store in the middle of gold rush territory. She is having a bit of trouble fitting into the new town, both from the difficulty of the move and personality clashes.
Year: 1884

We entered into our new house early next morning. California sure was pretty. The gold rush fever seemed to have caught everyone, the houses and farms were all packed. We moved into our house and unpacked everything. The doorbell rang, and we were welcomed by some neighbors [ ahem ahem ]. They had a daughter too. I hoped she would become my friend.

As I woke up I realized I woke up pretty late it was 11:30 I ran downstairs and saw I sign outside of out house, "What do you mean 'Sold out!' mom?" My mom replied and said "Well, we're moving and we were selling out house and somebody bought it!" I was confused and said "Where are we going?" We are going to the beautiful state of...Florida!I wondered how this was going to turn out...

[OOC -- I vote we just ignore the 'Year' part. Otherwise, it makes it impossible to interact with each other.]

Alexia rang the doorbell of her new neighbor's house. Her mother always sent her out to greet new arrivals in town, thinking that an early gesture like this would ensure loyalty to their store over any other in the area. She knew her deep red cotton day dress with its matching tailored jacket was immaculate, and if she didn't want to hear her mother's lectures on the matter for the rest of the week, it would have to stay that way until she'd returned home and changed into something simpler.

She prepared a wide smile, and shifted her hold on the welcome basket her father had sent her with -- a few jars of preserves and a batch of fresh muffins, perfect to help a family that might not have many provisions in yet.

I opened the door to see a girl in a red dress, with a basket of muffins and jars of preserves. I smiled wide and introduced myself, " Hi there, I'm Jenny Lasso, " I said, extending my hand. I loved to make friends.

Alexia carefully balanced the basket on one hip, and reached out to shake the offered hand. "Hello, I'm Alexia Dempsey. Welcome to town. My father runs Dempsey's General Store, and he's very generous when welcoming newcomers. Please accept this housewarming gift from us." she said, holding the basket out.

She eyed the younger girl carefully. A possible friend, but she needed to get her duties out of the way first. This was nice -- it was frustrating how many miners didn't bring their families along. There were few girls she could really be friends with.

Alexia handed me the baskets, which smelled fresh. I thanked her and invited her in. My mother would love to find out that we had a person welcoming us to this new neighborhood.

"Thanks a ton," I said. Just then my mom came over. "Look here mom, Alexia has come here to welcome us to the neighborhood with muffins and preserves," I introduced them. My mom smiled at Alexia, " Hello dear, I sure hope you and Jenny could be friends. What do your parents do? Well why don't you come and have supper with us, I'm just about done," My mom invited, dusting away. We had just got here and we were already half unpacked. My mom was good at this now, we had moved so many times. It was going to be a pain to unpack my room.

After a hard day working on the farm, Thomas took me to the barn to see a special new arrival! Chancey, our sheepdog, had had her puppies! There were three of them! We sat in the straw as they cuddled up to their mother. "They are adorable!" I said softly. Thomas laughed. "Indeed!" He agreed. He picked one up and handed the little ball of fluff to me. I giggled as it nuzzled me with it's lil wet nose. "Don't hold 'er too long or 'er momma won't like it!" He said, shuffling over and stroking her black and white fur with his fingers. At that moment, my momma came bursting into the barn. "Amber Belle!" My momma called. "Amber Belle! There's some new folk about a mile away from here, I want you to take the cart and deliver some goat's cheese to welcome them!" I carefully placed the little puppy back with her momma and stood up, brushing the straw off my apron. Thomas stood up and helped me over the straw bales. "And Thomas, you go with Amber Belle, make sure she don't get ambushed by no bandits or indians!" Thomas tipped his hat with a gloved hand. "Yes ma'am!" I went to change into a travelling dress and Thomas and I set off for the new folk's house.

Alexia smiled. "Hello, Mrs. Lasso. It's a pleasure to meet you. My father runs Dempsey's general store with my mother, and they sent me over with this housewarming gift. We've a wide range of supplies, and are used to helping out new arrivals to the state."

With a regretful smile, she added, "I'd love to stay for dinner, but my mother will be expecting me back to help set the table soon. Another evening, perhaps."

" That's great, I'll be sure to visit, " my Mom said, " Pity. Make sure you let your parents know their welcome any time. I would love to sit and have supper with them, " she invited, smiling. I showed Alexia the door and waved goodbye. She seemed pretty nice. " Time for you to unpack, Jenny. Head up to your room and no supper until you've finished, " my Mom said, sternly. I headed upstairs and started unpacking, pushing the furniture in place and stuffing my closets with clothes. I took a quick shower and headed downstairs.

I woke up from the rooster cry. It was early in the morning as usual. The sun didn't rise yet. The house was empty. It was full of snores from Natasha and mother. I fed the chickens and gathered the eggs and came back to the house. I started sewing and making breakfast for everyone. It was just the usual. I looked outside and it was dusty. Our neighbors lived very far away probably like 5 miles away. The weather didn't look too good. It might be really hot and heated today. Anything could happened today though. I cooked the eggs and took out three plates. Today there was a lot to get done.

I turned to Thomas who was sat in the cart outside. I motioned for him to come over. "This is Thomas!" I said, introducing the farmhand to Jenny. "Although he's more like family now!" I said. We stepped inside. "Nice place you got here!"
