Hello! I am a sophomore in high school that loves to do art. I would love to work on small pieces, and colloabe with beginners like me. I'm not the best artist, but I love to make art, and make people laugh.
(It was a rainy evening when the Original OC Squad: Jade, Onyx, Smiley, and Amber, are sitting in the breakroom, enjoying some dinner Jade cooked up for them. They took note early that Alex would be late, but they’re starting to get worried.)
Jade: That’s weird. I called Alex 10 minutes ago; he said he’ll be here by now.
(Smiley starts to play with her knife.)
Smiley: I don’t know. Maybe he got murdered in a back alley.
Amber: Smiley, shut up.
(Amber sorta “swats” at Smiley as she gives her famous devilish giggle.)
Onyx: Stop it Smiley. Look, I’ll just call him again.
(Just as Onyx was going to pick up her phone, Alex bust through the room with an extustied look on his face. He’s holding a bundle of blankets in his right hand and is leaning against the door with his left. He looked like he was in a fight.)
Onyx: Oh my gosh! Alex!
Smiley: Ha! I called it! You were almost murdered in a back alley!
(Alex puts his finger up as he catches his breath.)
Alex: Not quite…
(Alex sits down in the chair, still holding on the blankets tight.)
Amber: What happened Alex?
Onyx: Yeah, and what’s that in your arms?
(At this moment, Jade gets up and walks over to Alex.)
Jade: Tell them the short version.
(Alex looks up at Jade, realizing that she had her third eye opened.)
Alex: You and your future vision.
(Alex looks back at the other girls.)
Alex: Alright, here’s the short version. I was walking home when I heard a noise from an alleyway. I was hesitant first but something just seemed… Off… So I went in and…
(Just then, the bundle made a small noise of discomfort.)
Smiley: What was that?
Jade: Alex, give her to me.
Alex: Wait how do you-?
Jade: Future vision.
(Jade takes the bundle of blankets, slowly revealing that there's an infant in there.)
Onyx: Is that a child???
Smiley: You brought home a child Alex???
Alex: What was I supposed to do!? We don't have an orphanage in town!
Amber: Oh my God I'm having flashbacks!
Jade: EVERYONE SHUT UP!
(The baby agrees by giving out a sound of discomfort and tries to wiggle free. Jade shushes the baby back to sleep while rocking her in her arms.)
Jade: Look, let's talk to Mariam about this. She'll know what to do.
(It's the next day and everyone is surrounding Mariam as she looks at the child in Jade's arms.)
Mariam: I have no idea what to do.
Smiley: Knew it.
Mariam: So wait, you found this infant in a box, in a dark alley last night?
Alex: Yeah, and I'm glad I found her when I did. She would have froze to death if I didn't scoop her up.
Mariam: And about those punch marks…?
Alex: I ran into a gang afterwards…
Mariam: I see…
Jade: So what are we supposed to do? Should we look for the parents?
Mariam: I doubt the parents of this cute baby would just abandon their child in the rain and want to come back for her.
(Mariam gently strokes the baby's brown hair to calm her down.)
Mariam: I say we raise her until we can figure out what happened.
Jade: Are you nuts??
Smiley: We can't raise a baby!
Alex: Are we even qualified???
Onyx: What are we going to do??
(The baby let out a distressed cry, which got everyone's attention. She stopped as she stared up at everyone with big wonder filled eyes.)
Mariam: Look guys, we have no other choice. We'll raise her and try to solve the mystery of her abandonment.
Jade: I call dibs on being “mom”.
Onyx: I guess I can be her teacher once she's old enough.
Amber: I can be her guard dog in a way.
Alex: Meh. Being a big brother wouldn't hurt.
Smiley: This plan suck but, I'll give it a go.
(There's a collective silence.)
Onyx: What about the Warehouse?
Amber: Yeah. People will quickly realize that we have a baby here.
Smiley: And it won't be long until the villains find out about her. God know what Bill may do to her if he finds her.
Mariam: Well… She'll be our little secret. Come on, let's take her to that extra breakroom we have.
(And after that forwards, the baby, newly named afterwards as Mimi, became a symbol of hope for the team because she made sure to remain everyone that they are greater than what they think they are: Mimi is their driving force, their hope, their courage, their love of everything. Now, after 6 years, on Mimi’s supposive birthday, Mariam finally designs it's time, for their small secret mascot, to go out to the public.)
