AJ's life suddenly changed (LMiller only)

Postby PMiller » Sun Sep 06, 2015 5:32 am

One minute everything was normal in your life...

Then you noticed your hand slowly disappearing around the edges. Almost like an eraser was making it disappear, or maybe it was a 1000 termites eating away from the edges. Your fingers narrowed, then your whole hand was gone. Same with the other. Oddly you did not feel any pain, but your heart raced as you had no idea what was happening!

It took about 2 seconds and...

Image
You woke up lying in a dark, damp alley. It was night time. You were completely naked, absolutely nothing you had been wearing was with you.

In reply, please use a picture of your character’s face and reveal their name. It would be a good to begin revealing what, where, when of what they were doing before the “incident” happened.

AJ Jefferson was walking back home from karate class with Steve, his friend. They were both eating an ice cream sandwich and talking about their favorite video game. As they were getting close to their houses, AJ noticed his hand started to disappear. He dropped his ice cream sandwich and looked at Steve gasping.

"What the heck?" AJ said staring at Steve.

AJ woke up, completely naked. Steve was gone. "Steve?" he said and stood up. His voice echoed down the dark alley. The boy walked down the alley, curiously. "Hello?" AJ said, but there was no answer.

AJ had recalled vividly, it really felt like he had just seen Steve less than a minute ago, that his friend had looked back at him with confusion and wonder as they saw AJ’s hands disappear.

It was not late afternoon, but night time now. He was a little chilly too.

The only answer to his call was a cat’s complaining squall as it crossed in front of the naked boy. There were sounds of cars and traffic at the far end of the alley, but not much. A blue sedan crossed in front in a blur under the street lights.

"I wonder if Steve's there at the road, "the teenager said after the blue car went by. AJ raced to the end of the alley, hoping to see Steve. But unfortunately he wasn't there.

Remembering he's naked, the boy quickly went back into the alley. Then he peeked outside.

AJ looked around the road to see if there was an clothes shop or something. "It's getting colder," he said to himself. "I have to put on some clothes."

A silver min-van drove by going down the street in the opposite direction as the blue car. AJ did not recognize the neighborhood at all. It was later evening, the stores or shops were closed and there were no lights on in the display windows. It was not an expensive neighborhood.

But before he could look more closely, another car drove by, a green four-door. An older boy, probably a high school kid, yelled from his open window and pointed back towards you as he leaned out. “Hey, kid. Where’s your pants?” he called out, but it was not a friendly question.

The car slowed down, the red glow of its break lights brighter. There looked to be at least three or four people in the car.

AJ stared at the shops, disappointed. None were open. He looked around the unfamiliar neighborhood. "Where is this place?" he mumbled.

When the green car passed by and a boy yelled at him about being naked, AJ got pretty embarrassed and his cheeks turned red.

When the car slowed, AJ sprinted back into the dark alley, hiding behind the dumpster.

Ducking behind the dumpster, AJ waited shivering.

The older boys in the car were likely bullies and the driver had turned the car around to stop in front of the opening to the alley. Peaking around the blue metal side, AJ could see them blocking the alley with their windows down and two boys leaning out to look in his general direction.

They were talking to each other, but AJ was too far to hear what they were saying until one called out, “Keep running kid!”

“Yeah, maybe you will find your Underoos! Ha ha,” another one jeered.

They had not seen AJ, hidden mostly from view and protected by the shadows. The boys gave up, quickly losing interest and driving away. They had done another U-turn and continued on the original way they had been heading.

From where he crouched behind the dumpster, AJ could see the alley was quite long, several yards in the other direction as well until it looked to empty out onto another street. The sides of the alley were building lined with some shallow alcoves, and potentially some closed doors in the shadows of them. The street lights were spaced plenty far apart, leaving most of the alley in dimness.

AJ sighed in relief that the boys went away. He made sure they were gone, and stood up. The boy saw the other side.

"Hmm, I wonder what's down that side," he mumbled and started walking to the other side.

AJ looked around while walking, spying the doors and alcoves. The boy walked all the way to the other side, peeking out to the street.

Out on the other street, traffic was pretty minimal and there was hardly anyone in sight. A block away to the left and across the street there was a dark sedan on the corner where woman with a large afro stood beside it. She was standing with her hands on the roof of the car as she leaned lower to talk with the driver through the passenger window. She was a colored woman, dressed in tight skirt that was very short, dark stockings and boots to her knees. She wore a red leather jacket too.

Whatever the conversation, the black woman straightened up and the car drove away. She walked to the street lamp and leaned against it to smoke a cigarette.

Directly across from the opening to the alley, there was a rather beat up looking bus stop with a bench and a coin-operated newspaper dispenser next to it.

There were no other people or cars in sight at the moment.

AJ stared at the woman, wondering what she was talking about. He shrugged and went back into the alley.

Then the boy looked across the street. He saw the bus stop and the newspaper dispenser. "Hmm, maybe I can wrap myself in newspaper," he said and picked up a brick near an alcove.

AJ walked with it and crossed the street quickly. He made sure no one was looking and threw the brick at the newspaper dispenser.

The only one within half of a block was the black woman with the afro leaning against the light pole and smoking a cigarette.

The glass broke as the brick crashed through. The little window was mostly broken in with pieces and shards inside with the newspapers. However there were some sharp pieces still in place around the edges. It was almost like the open mouth of the window had teeth.

Image
The woman down the street had not moved or called out anything. She was looking in AJ’s direction though.

AJ carefully reached into the dispenser and took out the brick. he knocked out the rest of the glass.

Then the boy quickly took out some newspapers and wrapped them around his waist. he had to hold it up, but at least it covered his privates.

"Phew, at least I'm fine now," he said and glanced at the woman.

In pulling out the newspaper, AJ noticed that it was the local paper, the Knoxville News Sentinel. That was not unusual, but it did confirm that you were not too far from home. The neighborhood was probably more in the city than the suburb community you lived in.

The other thing that caught his eye was the date. Instead of being October, the date was September. Looking closer he also realized it was not just a newspaper from a few weeks ago, but it was from September 2009! That was over 6 years ago.

Despite their age, the newspapers still looked and felt pretty new as the boy used them to cover his privates.

Image
The black woman with the afro was still down the street, leaning against the light pole with her lit cigarette. Just past her another half block farther was a purple care with tinted windows and riding really low on the back tires.

AJ sat down on the bench with his privates covered in newspapers. He took one out and started reading it.

"Oh my gosh," the boy said with his eyes wide open. "I went back in time!"

AJ sighed in relief and mumbled, "Well, at least I'm in the same town I live in." He glanced at the woman, and then at the car.

"Hmm, that is a pretty weird car. Why is it low on the back tires?"

AJ was cold sitting there on the bus stop bench. The newspapers were going to cover up his privates and keeping his butt a little warmer without being direct contact with the bench’s seat. But that did nothing to make his back warmer and he started to shiver…

Then he noticed he was fading from view again. Slowly his legs disappeared and…

He was lying down on the sidewalk in his neighborhood. Sitting up he saw the dropped ice cream on the sidewalk beside him. It had melted pretty bad in the summer heat.

AJ was naked once again. There were no newspapers covering his privates anymore. There was no sign of Steve or his karate outfit. Luckily his house was only about 50 yards down the street.
