Overview

East is East and West is West, and the wrong one I have chosen.

How could one week make such a difference in the life of Miss Laura Martin? That one week holds the secret that cannot be revealed! Can the school teacher from New England make a fresh start in Summit City, located in the Sandhills of Nebraska, as she deals with the conflict of the two cultures? She is virtually penniless in the dead of winter, January 1951. More depressing than to be cold and hungry, is to be without a friend or family. A 'cowboy contract' sealed by a handshake is the beginning of her teaching in a rural school. Three days in the community, and she already has the reputation of being a 'feisty' lady. Maude Dunham, an outspoken cafe owner in Summit City is Laura's first friend in the community and her staunchest supporter and critic.

    Francis Ripper

    My name is Francis Ripper. I'm an orphan, living in the sewers and stealing stuff to eat and drink or to sell to buy food and water. I have shoulder-long black hair, a pale face, and grey eyes. I'm fourteen, but I'm quiet for my age.<br>I'm pessimistic, sometimes stoic, and humorous.<br>My powers are cliche; I can control the emotions of people around me to some extent, and I have levitationary powers. I can control my abilities better when my own emotions are active; the stronger the feelings the more powerful I am.<br>I have two weapons. The first is a Gatlink-pistol, the barrel like that of a Gatlink-gun's, except it only has five rotating barrels. The second is a melee weapon; a scimitar I stole from a unique weapons store. The handle is unusually long, and allows greater control of the blade.<br>Instead of enlisting myself in the orphanage, I tend to stay around the weird tween with unique powers, often sitting in the tree outside her window late into the night and peering in.<br><br>Here's an idea for the antagonists of the story, in case you haven't made any yet. While dozing in the barn nearby the house she's staying at, a whirlwind of dust rises from the ground, binding together in the form of a lightly-armored figure wearing a grey mask and keeping a katana strapped to its back; a pistol holstered to its hip. Another forms, bearing the same attire and weaponry.<br>They are Ability Thieves, beings of ninja-like powers that survive by converting the powers of others into life essence. They have only a few powers: high jumping, summoning shurikens, and making themselves almost invisible to the naked eye. The two that have teleported to drain Faith are Alice and Nate, two friends attempting to survive.<br>Faith is awoken by the front of the barn exploding inward, the two Thieves aproaching her with weapons drawn.<br>Francis Ripper, who had been boredly stalking Faith, attempts to intervene, revealing himself as more than a random kid who coincidently is around her alot.
