Sample Roleplay Post:

Greta stuck at her chin as she stared at the boy Infront of her.

"You- you- you- Tattler." He declared and Greta rolled her eyes. Was this really what he'd come with all the boys to tell at her about? And did they think they were intimidating all four of them trying to gang up on a sweet innocent young girl. All because she'd found out and then told Mr. O'Reilly that they'd broken into his house and stolen his prize pig.

The poor thing had been tied up in the woods dressed in something revolting. She didn't know what they'd been intending but they should've been glad she'd dobbed them in. He could've gone to the cops and who knows how bad it could've gotten.

"What would you have done with a Pig Gareth?" She asked, trying to talk sense into him but it was a worthless task. She should've realised that because his ears turned red. .

"None of your business. Tattler. Stay out of our business. Stick with the girls." Greta's eyes flashed. She refused to be intimidated by four boys. Besides they had nothing on Cam and they knew it and her brother would be home in a week.

"That pig did nothing to you." One of them went to push her or at least she thought that's what happened because instead what happened was a bunch of sparks seemed to erupt from her body and the boys went running.
