SSB: LIFE ITSELF 2011-2021
Splash and laughter was all she heard as little 3 year old Penny Benson was being carried into the swimming area of the hotel she was staying in with her parents, Thomas and Elieen and her grandparents Greg and Gretal. Penny watched as people of all ages were enjoying themselves swimming, sliding and all kinds of activity's...She wanted to join in but alas, she was only a toddler and can barely speak proper english.
The four adults and the toddler stopped by a table near the very shallow end of to the pool, where a bunch of toddlers were happily playing by themselves. Elieen walked towards it with Penny in hand and placed her in the pool along with yellow tiny floats around her waist, Penny watched as her mother departed to the nearby table and looked at the other toddlers, who acted like they didn't even see her enter the pool.
Penny walked around the small area and tried to strike small dribble conversations with anyone, but all she got was them playfully splashing water on her face. She sat down in the middle of the shallow pool, thinking about anything she could do...And that was when she saw it!
Penny quickly stood up when she saw the path to the normal shallow end of the pool, she walked towards it like she was in a trance, she wanted to be with kids that were a bit...Older...Maybe the normal swallow pool will be right for her, besides, she believed herself to be fearless...What could go wrong?
As Penny walked closer to the swallow pool she quickly came back to reality when she started to notice...She was floating! Penny quickly looked around and tried to kick her tiny legs back to shallow end of the pool, but she kept drifting away to the normal shallow end! She breathed heavily and started to freak out, how could she be floating...She wanted back down! Just then she heard footsteps and was soon grabbed, Penny screamed to the top of her lungs as she was pulled out of the pool.
"Trying to be adventurous?" A familer voice called out behind her, Penny looked to see that the person who grabbed her was her father Thomas, who smiled at her daughter. "Maybe you should have lunch...Were going to have broccoli." He said as he walked back to the table with Penny in hand.
She was brought down to a chair that was right for her size and was giving a piece of broccoli, she grabbed it in curiosity and took a bite into it, Penny smiled and relax as she felt the bit of broccoli that she ate..."It feels like those those light things that are fired into the sky..." She thought to herself as she took another bite.
Penny loved that day she spent with her family and would always wish to have these kind of vacations all the time, unfortunately It also meant she got her first fear...The water.
And this would also be the last vacation she had with her family
Before Project Porta...

It was a hot day at the school Penny was learning In as she sat at the cool shade by a tree, reading a book that she rented from the library, however even Penny thought the book was starting to get very boring, but maybe there was something Interesting In the playground...Something, adventurous!
Penny slammed her book shut and looked up at the tree she was sitting by, maybe this would be a great adventure...Climbing a tree, her mother Eileen did these kinds of things In her youth, so maybe she should follow In her mother's footsteps and do some climbing as well. Penny grabbed on the wood to the trees and began to climb, leaving her book by the tree...It was not like someone was going to take It anyway, this school had good manners unlike others.
Penny climbed for a bit before grabbing onto the first branch she could find and hanged on there for awhile. "Wow...I'm doing good for climbing so far!" Penny said happily as she sat on the branch before quickly standing on It. "And this Is one hell of a long tree." She said soon after as she continued to climb up the tree.
After numerous climbs up the tree with the help of wood and branch's...She finally made It, Penny made It to the top of the largest tree In the school and looked down at everyone playing nearby. "Hey everyone, I just climbed this tree!" She said as the kids quickly got Penny's attention and gasped...
Before cheering for Penny's adventurous spirit helping her get to the top of the tree, unfortunately Teacher's quickly took notice of what Penny did and raced outside the playground to watch In horror as a young girl was putting her life at risk with all the climbing.
"Penny, get down, now!" One of the panicked teacher's said as Penny looked down towards her. "Okay!" She said as she jumped on the branch's before managing to get back to the ground unscratched, the teachers looked angrily at Penny as the playground bell began to ring, causing all the kids around Penny and the Teachers to quickly run back Inside the school, all the while whispering to Penny.
"Good job Penny!"
"Your the best."
"I wanted to climb that tree myself!"
Soon the only kid left In the playground was Penny, as all the teachers continued to look at her...Angrily.
It was a great night In the Benson household as Penny bounced on the couch she was on, enjoying the joys of life, her parent's quickly entered and looked at there daughter. "Happy about seeing Darla tonight Penny?" Eileen said to Penny who jumped and landed In front of her parent's. "Yeah, I cant wait to see her...But will you be back soon?" Penny said to the two as Thomas reassured her.
"Dont worry Penny, It's just a night business trip, we'll be back as soon as you know It...This business trip might actually help the world." Thomas said to Penny who looked happy at her parent's. "I'm happy that your going to help the world!" She said as her parent's laughed, soon the doorbell rang, causing the three to walk towards It, when they opened It, Darla and Finn were standing by the door.
"Finn, I didn't know you were dating Darla?" Eileen said as Darla looked at Finn. "Actually, he came behind me just when I came here...I have no relationship with him." Darla said as she walked In and looked at Penny. "Hi Penny? Ready to have a great night?" She said as Penny nodded. "Yeah, I cant wait!" She said happily as Finn looked at Penny. "You seem to have a wonderful daughter." Finn said to Thomas and Eileen as they got ready to leave. "Well what can you expect?" Thomas said as Eileen looked at Darla & Penny.
"Dont stay up too late now Penny" Eileen said as Penny nodded. "Dont worry mom!" Penny said as Eileen, Thomas and Finn left for the business trip, leaving Penny alone with her babysitter Darla. "So...What do you want to do Penny?" Darla said as Penny took out a list. "Well..."

Read a gritty realistic fantasy book

Play Knick Knacks
After doing all that, Penny got ready for bed. "That was a great night Darla." Penny said as she went Into bed, looking jolly as ever. "Well, your parent's will be back when you wake up soon...Goodnight Penny." Darla said as she kissed Penny on the forehead and watched as she fell asleep, Darla left the room soon after.
Of course...She was wrong about her parents.
As Darla got ready to wait for Thomas and Eileen to get home...The doorbell ring. "Coming!" Darla said as she opened the door. "Welcome back Mr and Mr---Huh!?" Darla said In surprise as two men In lab coats stood by the doorway, confusing Darla. "Is this the home of the Benson's?" One said as Darla replied. "Yeah...I'm babysitting there daughter for the evening, did something happen?" Darla said In curiosity as the two men nodded, she welcomed them inside and closed the door soon after.
An hour later, Penny woke up to the sound of Darla crying, she got out of bed and investigated, she went down the stairs and saw the two men, looking at Darla who was crying...Penny looked confused, why wasn't her parent's back yet?
"Where's my Mom and Dad?"
Project Porta had finally happened...
Jun 21, 2016 4:48:46 GMT -8 by Deleted: Changed the last line.
Penny was standing by her backyard, sad over the turn of events...Thomas and Eileen along with Finn, were now missing following a test drive for Project Porta...And she wasn't sure If they were going to come back..Ever. she looked at a small tree In her backyard as her back door opened, Darla, her babysitter, called out to her. "Penny, are you ready to come In...Greg and Gretal have something to discuss with you." Darla said as Penny turned towards Darla.
She was wearing black and there were white clouds above her.
"Coming..." Penny said sadly as she went back In her house, people In black clothing were In her house, It was almost full of them as they offered there condolences for Thomas and Eileen. Penny walked over past the people...Before she bumped Into two of them, her grandparents, Greg and Gretel. "Uncle Greg...Aunt Gretel, what are you two doing here?" She said to the two as Gretel keeled down towards her. "Were here for to offer condolences Penny." Gretel said as Penny looked confused. "But...Darla said you needed to talk to me about something?" Penny said as Greg looked at Penny. "Penny, since your parent's are...Missing, how about you come live with us back In the city until there found?" Greg said to Penny...Who looked sad.
After spending the entire day wondering about the offer, Penny went up to her grand parents and spoke to them. "Ok...I'll come with you two until my parent's are found." She said as her Grandparents...Who were now her adopted parents, smiled at her.
"Don't worry Penny, you'll see...Things will be aright."
"Yeah...Goodbye neighbourhood...Goodbye Mother and Father...
Penny sat outside her grandparent's bedroom, she was enjoying her time here with her grandparent's ever since her parents disappearance...Unfortunately another tragedy struck, Gretel, her grandmother, had fallen Ill after over the past months teaching her new skills that might help her In the future...And now she was most likely going to die...However the door to her bedroom suddenly opened, causing her to sit up and see Greg and a Doctor walk out of It.
"Doctor Robinson, how Is my grandmother doing?" Penny said walking to the two as Greg and Robinson looked down at her, they looked at each other before looking back down at Penny. "It's fatal...Penny, were not sure how long she'll have left...It's best that you say your goodbyes soon...I'm sorry." Robinson said as he quickly walked off from the halls as Greg and Penny looked at him leave...Sad over what was going to happen to Gretel.
"Penny..." A weak voice called out as Penny and Greg turned towards Gretel, who was lying In bed and looked very Ill, the two walked Into the bedroom, with Penny going near Gretel to talk to her. "Yes...Grandmother?" Penny said as Gretel coughed before speaking. "I'm sorry...That I'm not going to be here that much In your life now, and that we never found my son...Or your mother." Gretel said as Penny looked down at her.
"It's ok Grandmother, I'm sure my parent's will be found soon...And you'll be happy In the afterlife once you know there safe and sound." Penny said as Gretel weakly smiled. "Penny, I knew you have hope from within you...Keep It no matter what, because the skills you learned with me...And the troubles you been through, will help you become stronger In the future." Gretel said as Penny smiled. "Yes Grandmother they will...I love you..." She said as Greg grabbed Penny's shoulder, causing her to look up.
"You can go...Penny, I want to spend time along with Gretel..." Greg said to Penny who sadly nodded before walking out of the bedroom...Her eye's filled with tears, she gave one last look to her ill grandmother...
Penny arrived at the funeral home for Gretel's funeral...She looked down at the coffin that contained the corpse of her grandmother...At least she was at peace now, she gave her final words to her grandmother before sitting at a nearby chair...She did notice that Greg was missing and wondered where she was, she quickly got off her chair and started to look around. "Uncle...Uncle?" Penny said looking around for Greg, eventually coming across a door to the office with a voice similar to Greg's.
Talking to...A woman?
Penny opened the door to see her Grandfather talking to a middle aged woman, the two looked down at Penny as they both smiled. "Oh, Penny, how fortunately for you to be here...This Is Tillerwomen." He said as the woman waved at her, Penny looked confused. "Grandfather, why are you talking to her, What about the funeral?" Penny said to Greg as he sighed heavily before speaking. "Penny...You cant stay with me any longer...I'm getting busy In life and I cant look after you now that Gretel...My wife, Is dead, so Tillerwoman owns this school and I think...You should go there." He said as Penny gasped. "You were going to send me to a boarding school? Without asking me first!?" Penny said In shock as Greg replied...
"Now Penny, this Is for the good o---IT'S NOT GOOD...MY PARENT'S WOULDN'T LIKE THIS...
GRETEL WOULDN'T OF WANT THIS!"
"PENNY!, DO----However before Greg could finish...Penny had already left the room In tears of her betrayal, Tillerwoman calmed Greg. "Don't worry...Penny will be fine at my school, she'll probably be the best student there...
It was the day Penny was sent to Tillerwoman's school, where she would be separated by her suddenly cruel Grandfather and forced to deal with education In this unknown school. After being sent on a bus to the school, Penny sat In It and wait...Until she arrived at the school, once she did, she was escorted towards the office.
Where she was there...Tillerwoman, the woman who caused her to be sent to this school In the first place, once Penny entered the office. Tillerwoman turned towards her and smirked as Penny walked towards a chair. "Ah...Penny Benson, how nice to see you here, at last." Tillerwoman said as Penny sat down, ignoring her as she looked up at the woman. "Well...Welcome to my school, I'm glad that you'll be joining us." Tillerwoman said as Penny continued to ignore her...Unfortunately Tillerwoman took notice.
"Am I being rude?" Tillerwoman said to Penny, bitter as Penny continued to ignore her...Making her angry. "Well...Let me just tell you some rules here tight lips, this isn't like the past two neighbourhoods you lived In, this place will be different...As we'll make you perfect, which means.
- No games.
- No Reading.
- And no Creativity." She said as Penny finally talked...By objecting to her rules.
"No Creativity, that's a bi---DO I MAKE MYSELF CLEAR!" Tillerwoman suddenly screamed at Penny as the force of the scream suddenly caused her to fall out of her chair, Penny said under her breath. "No...You ungrateful witch." As Tillerwoman gave her some black clothing, Penny grabbed It and looked at It In curiosity before looking back up at Tillerwoman. "Whats this?" She said as Tillerwoman replied.
"Your school clothing here...Now go to your new room, a new semester will start In this school very soon, just In time for you to learn about our ways here."
Ever since she was enrolled In Tillerwoman's school, Penny's life became miserable, when she failed a test one time...The first test she ever failed In her life and she did better after that one, a bunch of girls came and slammed her head on the desk a couple of times, causing a tooth to fall out and when she made a small garden outside her dorm window, a room mate of hers named Alyssa found out about It and promised to keep It a secret.
She broke her promise.
When she came back to her room one day she saw a group of girls...Including Alyssa burning the garden to bits, causing her to become depressed for awhile...None of the teachers were helping either as they would sometimes guilt trip or outright blame Penny for the miserable situation she was In. Fortunately today was peaceful.
And the day that her life would change forever.
Penny was reading by a large tree In the school courtyard...Many students were afraid to near the tree due to rumours and urban legends about It, fortunately Penny ignored those things and It was a good thing to...Because she heard something above her, causing her to look up. "Huh...What was that?" Penny said as she got up from the grass and looked up to the tree...Which was moving as If someone was around It.
Nobody was nearby...So Penny called out to whoever was on the tree. "Hello?" she said...As something fell on top of her, causing her to yelp and fall on the grass. Some of the students turned towards Penny...Before going back to there things as Penny looked up and saw what fell on her.
It was a creature...With goggles...And was bleeding, Penny gasped and picked up the unconscious creature, who looked like he was near death, It seemed to look like a rabbit...But had features that made him look...Different.
But there was no time for that, he was bleeding and needed help...Penny's help, If she took him to the nurse, who knows what she'll do to him...She cant trust anyone In this devilish school, so Penny took her book and the unconscious rabbit and ran back to her dorm where she'll give him the best care she can give.
"Don't worry rabbit...Thing, I'll save you no matter what!"
After brining her back to her dorm, Penny quickly used her first aid training and a medkit to save the creature's life. After a few minutes of trying to help the rabbit recover, Penny slumped to the floor In exhaustion, finishing what she can do for the rabbit and just...Waited for him to recover. "Please recover poor rabbit...I'm sorry about what happened to you." Penny said sadly to the rabbit, before falling asleep near his unconscious body.
When she got up later...The rabbit was gone, surprising her. "Huh...Hey, were did you go?" Penny said looking around for the rabbit, which she quickly found by a mirror...Standing and looking at his damaged wounds and bandages Penny gave him, she looked surprise that the rabbit was, properly standing. "Your...Standing?" Penny said to the rabbit, who turned and smiled at Penny.
"Oh, thank you for helping me...I could of died If you didn't find me." He said, causing Penny to look surprised. "What...Oh right, I'm talking." Riley said as Penny ran to the kitchen of her dorms and grabbed a fork, she came back to the rabbit...To stab her hand with the fork, causing the rabbit to gasp In surprise. "Oh my god are you ok?" The rabbit said running towards Penny who spoke. "I'm fine, I'm fine...I'm just surprised that I'm talking to a rabbit that's all!" Penny said as she dropped the fork on the floor, the rabbit picked up the fork before grabbing Penny's hand to apply a bandage on her hand.
"Here, let me try to help, you did kind of save my life...I might as well help with your wound...That you inflicted on yourself." The rabbit said as he helped Penny as the two sat by Penny's bed.
A few hours later, the two got to know each other with Penny looking happily at the rabbit, now called Riley Dmitri. "I see...So you came from this place called the Island via a teleporting accident and that was why you were wounded and near death?" She said to Riley who nodded In agreement. "I see...You can stick around here If you want until your recovered again and fix your teleporter back to this Island." Penny said as Riley said. "Yes...Ok, I will, thank you for your hospitality Penny Benson." Riley said to Penny.
"Please, call me Penny."
And thus, this was the start of Penny Benson's friendship with Riley Dmitri
Month's passed since Riley lived with Penny In Tillerwoman's school, he had taken refuge under Penny's bed and saw some of the...Harsh punishments, that Penny had to go through by everyone In the school. Eventually as time passed, Riley recovered from his wounds thanks to the help of Penny, who also helped him fix the teleporter that will send him back to the Island, however both of them knew that soon enough, they would have to leave each other to go there separate ways.
And indeed, the day came during the anniversary of Tillerwoman's school, the two had managed to fix a teleporter by the tree where Penny first found Riley, as Riley smiled he looked at Penny. "Thank you for your help miss Benson, I couldn't of done It without you." Riley said happily as Penny looked sad. "I'll miss you Riley." She said as Riley looked down...Before looking back up. "Say, Penny...About what you have to go through here...Maybe this will be the day you...Graduated?" Riley said to Penny who looked confused. "What do you mean...Are you offering me a chance to go back to the Island with you?" She said as Riley looked at Penny. "Well...Yeah, basica---"
"Yes, I'll come with you."
Riley looked happy at Penny before grabbing her hand. "Well...Let's go back and get packing!" Riley said happily to Penny who nodded In response as the two raced back to Penny's dorm to pack up and leave, once they were ready, Riley looked at Penny once more...Who was writing something. "Ready to go...Partner?" Riley said as Penny held her suitcase and placed the note by her now old desk.
"Yup, I think I had enough of learning In this school...So, let's go."
And the two left the dorms for an adventure of a lifetime...As the note that Penny wrote reads...
Dear Tillerwoman, by the time you read this, I have already left...I met someone who changed my life for the better who came from this amazing place where I'll be accepted for just the way I am...So please, don't look for me, as the place where me and the person I met are going will be almost impossible to find, In fact, I don't think you'll be around by the time you find me...I just hope this teach's you a lesson about treating your students like crap In this school, because eventually It will be closed down just for that.
Well, I better go and have a better future out of this miserable school, good luck with yours, tell Grandfather I said...Why.
After a few minutes, Riley and Penny teleported to there new home after escaping Tillerwoman's school, after walking off of It, Penny wondered about the teleporter at the school. "So, what will happen to the teleporter back to Tillerwoman's school, shouldn't we be worried about someone finding It?" Penny said to Riley who shrugged. "Dont worry, I added only a two person use, so when we entered It, the teleporter will permanently deactivate Itself." Riley said as he walked to the door, Penny followed as she put her suitcase down, Riley did so to his as well and grabbed the doorknob to the front door.
"So...Are you ready to see...The Island?" Riley said to Penny, who...After a few seconds, looked at Riley and replied. "Yes...I'm ready." Penny said as Riley opened the door and the two walked out...Penny looked around at the place In amazement as she smiled. "Riley...This Is amazing." She said as Riley looked back at Penny.
"Well Penny, what do you think so far?"
Penny looked at Riley.
"It's...Great...My parent's would be proud."
As Penny looked around her new home, Riley smiled at Penny's happiness.
