BigDreamer

Rachel Berry found herself in front of her computer; surfing the internet late on a Friday night. She’d spent the past hour mindlessly attempting to entertain herself. Her dads were away for the weekend and she had already posted her daily Myspace video. Bored out of her mind she searched up chat websites and after looking at the most popular ones and a few lame ones she decided to turn in for the night. About to shut her computer off one website caught her eye: letting her curiosity get the best of her she clicked on it.

Random Talk!

A website designed to meet new people and catered to you (actually catered to you). Choose your screen name, say your age and gender and talk without revealing who you actually are. Random Talk is designed to choose a chat room specifically for you and five others. This will be known as your chat room or your home base. Our website policy prohibits typing your name or any personal information asked for during the enrollment allowing you to communicate freely.
Join today for free and make new friends. We guarantee you’ll like it!

Rereading the welcome message and briefly skimming through the frequently asked questions, Rachel sighed. She shrugged her shoulders and shook her head; weighing the pros and cons that could come by joining a new (sort of sketchy in her opinion) website. Rolling her shoulders (she really should do something else, her posture was lacking at the moment) Rachel clicked on the join for free icon. After all she had nothing to lose. In fact she might actually be able to gain something from it.

The screen changed into a typical subscription form and Rachel decided to fill only the necessary boxes forgoing any optional spaces.

*Real Name: Rachel Berry
*Screen Name: BigDreamer
*Age: 17
*Gender: Female
*Home City: Lima
*Home State: Ohio
Reason for joining: Blank

She hit send before she could convince herself to go back and fill in the blank suggestions. Waiting for the next screen to load Rachel found herself thinking about her day. It had been pretty usual, maybe even a good day if she was pushing it, she at least hadn’t been slushied. Life was hard for her, even after being in a club with popular people New Directions was still at the bottom of the totem pole. She was still the loser of the losers. It didn’t help that the tentative friendships she’d formed where just that, tentative. Sure she had become friendlier with some of the members of the glee club: there was Tina, they shared polite conversations once in a while; Mercedes and herself had a few shopping sprees normally with Kurt and Tina as well; and Kurt and her talked, not a lot but they conversed. Yet, she was still lacking actual friendships and it was hard because it hurt. Santana, Quinn, Puck and even Finn’s offhanded comments hurt, she’d even say that the two cheerleaders’ comments hurt the most.

So maybe it was bit pathetic that she was getting her hopes up by joining this website, but honestly Rachel had nothing to lose by it.

Welcome Rachel Berry to Random Talk. From now on you’ll be known as BigDreamer. Please wait while we find a room for you.

Your chat room is the Green Chat Room. So far there are two other members: we are currently waiting/searching for the remaining members.

Your chat mates are SoloMan & lovesMYbff. Enjoy!

Rachel snorted to herself at how predictable the message was. And she may have let out a slight giggle at the name of her chat mates, although she couldn’t tease too much hers was BigDreamer (then again BarbraFan#1 was taken, along with others). It didn’t take long for her computer to beep announcing someone had chatted her.

*SoloMan has messaged you*

SoloMan:

Welcome BigDreamer, it’s nice of you to join us/me. I won’t introduce myself since it’s the website’s policy and impossible to exchange names. But what I can tell you is I am a guy who is 16 soon to be 17 and is starting my sophomore year.

BigDreamer:

Hello SoloMan thanks for the welcome. I’m a girl, who’s a junior and 17.

SoloMan:

Cool. I think this websites likes pairing up people of the same age or really close age groups. Our third member is a girl, junior and 17.

BigDreamer:

Guess she can introduce herself, since she is now online.

*lovesMYbff has just logged on and is requesting to join the chat.*

lovesMYbff:

*You are now offline. Log on again?*

Rachel smiled to herself as she turned her laptop off. She smiled at the thought of new friends who would never judge her. Or at least wouldn’t judge her in plain sight, but she refused to see the worst in them, so she ignored that thought. Yawning, she still allowed a grin appear on her face as she let sleep take over her. And for the first time in a long while Rachel felt content sleeping not dreading the next coming days.
