My Oc’s name is Melody, She's 13, has some PTSD and is ahead of her time. She has Strawberry blonde hair, Red freckles, and steely blue eyes. Basically made her to be the love child of Lams. Melody loves the colors white and green. She's not very talkative, but she will talk for hours to Her "Dads" Alexander and John. Anyways... On with the story!
All Melody could see was flames and smoke. She heard screaming, and she knew she had to get away.
"Help! Please!" She cried in desperation. Blood red colored men ran around, dragging people out of their homes, firing at them. She continued to plea and cry but no one could hear her. Melody ran as fast as she could. So fast she didn't see the two men in front of her. One man with Red hair and freckles grabbed her arm and began to run with her.
"Hey! What the hell are you doing!"
"Saving you!" Was all he said. He dragged her out of the city and took her to a small hideout not to far from the town. For a moment, he looked at her. She was trembling, Her dress was torn and burnt. Her strawberry blonde hair was curly and frizzed, and her eyes were bright blue. She couldn't be over fifteen.
Before he could examine her anymore, there was a loud explosion. Alexander had to cover her mouth to keep her from making too much noise.
"Stay here I'll be right back!" He called then left the little tent.
She didn't know this man, all she knew was that he wasn't wearing a redcoat.
The red-haired man returned a few minutes later, a blond-haired blue-eyed man standing next to him.
"Hello, Miss." The Blond said. She scooted backwards.
"No need to be afraid. We won't hurt you. My name is John Laurens, this is my... friend. Alexander Hamilton." Melody noted his stutter when John said 'Friend'
"What is your name, Miss?"
She didn't really want to say, but judging by the smoke she could still smell, it was likely her town was completely destroyed. Might as well tell them If she would have to stay with them for a bit.
"Do you have a last name?" Alexander asked.
"Not that I know of. I grew up on the streets." Alexander knew what it was like. No family, no one to protect you. It was no wonder why he felt connected to this girl. He saw she began to move a bit closer, but hissed as she did so.
"Are you hurt?" John came closer to her, there was an exposed part on the back of her leg. She had probably scrapped it when she moved around.
"It could get infected, just let us take you to our camp."
She sighed, then the two men helped her up.
Melody was taken to the infirmary, where her leg was cleaned then covered. Meanwhile John and Alex Argued over what should be done with the teenage girl.
"She has no where else to go, she had no family and even if she did they'd be dead. I know it would be dangerous to keep her, but just for now. Once we find a suitable family for her to stay with, we can leave her with them. Please, My dear Laurens." Alexander plead. He knew when he called John 'My dear Laurens' he couldn't say no.
John huffed, but agreed.
"Y-your going to keep me?" Alexander and John had finished explaining their plan for her, she would stay with them at camp, then once they went to a town with a fair and kind family, she'd stay with them.
"For now, yes." Melody wanted to Jump up and hug them. No one has ever taken her in. Even if it was temporary.
“I can’t thank you enough!” She grinned.
The only problem was, how could they take care of a teenage girl and fight in a revolution?
