Healing Horses & Troubled Teens since 1995
Not every teenager has the benefit of growing up in a loving, happy home. Some are victims of abuse, neglect, a system that shuffles them from foster home to foster home. Brook Haven Ranch was established in 1995 as a refuge for abused and neglected horses -- and teenagers who needed a second chance in life and the opportunity to become something more than society expects of them.

About Cade

» Cade grew up in Trader's Bend. Trader's Bend is the only home that he's ever known, and maybe that's why he's reluctant to ever leave it. The way he sees it, there's those people that leave where they were brought up and seek life out elsewhere, there's those that leave and come back -- thinking they can make where they grew up better, and there's those who never leave. He falls into the latter category, not only because the idea of leaving is terrifying, but because he genuinely loves it where he is and because he likes his life. Not everyone can be that okay with the way that things are, but he is. Trader's Bend is great for what it is, a quiet, somewhat small, backwards little town in rural Montana.

» Cade is related to the Brooks. Not biologically, of course. But when Tara married his dad, it made the Brooks family, and they have been ever since sticking their noses into his business and offering (sometimes) unwelcome opinions on everything from the girl he's dating to whether or not he should attend college.

» Cade owns his own plot of land. That money he saved. It added up, and when combined with his college tuition fund, which he decided he wasn't going to spend on college, it was enough for him to buy land, and purchase

» Cade built his own house. Growing up, he and his dad used to do projects like these, often building cabins for the ranch, so it didn't come as a surprise to anyone when he built his own house. It's actually quite an accomplishment for an almost 20 year old, and he's proud of it -- not many people can actually make that claim. While it's relatively small, for now, he's built it so that additions are possible.

» Medical school is a point of contention between him and his father. Keith wants his son to go to medical school and become a doctor, but that isn't what Cade is interested in. It's been an ongoing fight for the last year and half, when Cade announced that he wasn't going to university, but that he was going to get his EMS degree before working for a few years and going for paramedicine. Keith thinks that Cade is wasting his brain and talent, and Cade thinks there's more to life than school. They stand on opposite sides of the argument, and while they still haven't come to agreement, Keith has conceded to allow Cade to live his own life and make his own mistakes, even if he does often make comments about medical school.

» Cade has been working and saving money since he was thirteen. He's always been the hardworking sort. As a young boy, he offered services in town for mowing people's lawn, and he worked on ranches and farms in the area during the summer for extra cash, all of which went into his savings account.

» Cade was a star on the baseball team in high school. Baseball was a lot of fun in high school, and helped to pass the years. It was something that he really enjoyed, but he was never good enough to make it a career of it. He still loves to play and would love to volunteer some extra time helping to coach some boys.

» Cade approached Archer Somers about Grace. After overhearing the man talking about his daughter and how he wasn't quite sure what was best, Cade approached him about her. He knew full well that Archer Somers tended to arrange the marriages of his daughters, and if Grace was struggling that much at home, then maybe a change in scenery was what she needed. Archer was known for being incredibly harsh with his girls, and having almost unreachable expectations of them, and Cade had met Grace, he knew her and thought that she needed more than stiffling rules, rigid expectations, and parents that never let up.

Arranged Marriage

Growing up in Trader's Bend, Cade's always been aware of the Somers family, and the way that Archer tends to marry off his daughters through arranged marriages. Archer is a great man that Cade has learned a lot from since he joined the town's emergency services department as an EMT, and he worries for his daughter, which is what stemmed the conversation of marriage.

Now it's a matter of telling Grace, and figuring out if it's something that she's interested in. So far, it's worked for her sisters.

Mom's Pregnant

Cade knows that his father can be very perceptive, which is part of the reason that he's blown away by the fact that he hasn't picked up on the fact that his wife is pregnant. He can't tell whether or not Tara's just so wrapped up in stuff that she hadn't noticed or if there's a reason she's keeping all of this a secret. The whole thing is fishy, and while it's not his place, someone needs to spill the beans!

A new brother?!?

The fact that he has a younger brother, at all, is going to come as a shock to Cade. It's never been mentioned before, and it's not like his Dad to keep big secrets like that from him, which only leaves him able to make one conclusion: his father didn't know.

How Everett spent so much time flying under the radar is odd, and Cade isn't particularly pleased that he's spent so much time in foster care, when they were always there. While he doesn't doubt Everett's paternity, he's not quite sure what to make of the sudden addition. He's going to want a relationship with his little brother, but he isn't quite sure of where to start.

About Cade

Cade is one of those hometown boys that has always been popular within Trader's Bend. He was one of their star baseball players in high school, and he's always been the sort of guy who makes friends easily, and doesn't tend to judge people based on the small things in life. The way he sees it, everyone has their own story to live, and it's not his job to get in the way of it or to stop them.

At nineteen, Cade's a responsible guy that's got a lot going for him. He's purchased his own home by using a portion of his life savings to put a down payment on the place and plot of land. He's currently attending a nearby community college as he works to attain his degree in para-medicine.

When he's not working shifts at the fire station, working on his house, or attending classes, Cade can often be found at Brook Haven, volunteering his time to work with and for his family to help teenagers who need it. He likes to keep busy, and working at the ranch with the animals, teenagers or just by helping out with extra chores is a good use of his time -- or at least it is for him.

Platonic

Friends are something that he comes by easily enough. Unlike his father, he's a bit more of a talker, and despite preferring solitary time, he does well being around people when it becomes something that's necessary.

He's an honest person, who will tell you like it is in a very calm and practical way. He tends to be nice and do his best not to judge those in his life too harshly, but he doesn't tend to tolerate overall chaos all that well. He has a tendency to be incredibly loyal and will always do his best to see his friends through.

Romantic

Cade's had a few girlfriends in the past, but he is not currently attached or looking for lovers. His future has been plotted out, and he will eventually be participating in an arranged marriage, which is bound to cause issues of it's own, but he's committed, and to be honest, the more he gets to know her, the better he thinks the match is. Good thing her father thinks so as well.

Antagonistic

People who have a tendency to not only gossip, but make things worse are the most likely candidates to become an enemy of his. As far as Cade is concerned, it's the gossip that is Trader Bend's biggest issue, and while he will be the first to admit that there's a lot to talk about, people's relationship statuses, who's pregnant with who's baby, and the like, are not appropriate. At least not as far as he's concerned. He doesn't have an issue saying that to the folks in the town diner when they start whispering either. He thinks that the world would be a lot better of a place if everyone just learned how to keep their noses out of other people's business.

But there's also plenty of reasons people might not like him. For instance, he's nineteen and is about to enter an arranged marriage with a seventeen year old that's pregnant (not with his baby)! He's also never really left Trader's Bend and is convinced that he's happy with the life he has and doesn't want to run off to University to pursue a degree that isn't anything more than a piece of paper.

For the most part, he's a pretty steady guy, but as most teenagers are, he's known to have moments of temper when he's pushed to extremes.

Familiar

Cade is close with his family, and while he cares what they think, he only puts up with so much. He likes to be around his family, and he doesn't mind talking about his next step or what it means for him, but he doesn't like being looked down on for the choices that he makes. He wants them to be proud of him for what he does, and he loves it when they are. He works hard for the life that he has and while he understands his father's desire to see him pursue something more than being a paramedic and a homesteader; a simple life has always been his dream.

This is an alternate reality post set in the future for Cade.
QUOTE
Someone tells your character that someone close to your character has died, what happens?

Summer was beautiful, but the heat in the dead of night could be stifling if you let it. As he sat on the porch with his beer, he could hear Grace putting the kids to sleep and he sighed. The sounds of her voice was like a comforting blanket, and he couldn't help but to smile, even as he thought of the fact that someone must have left a window open.

He'd been about to get up from the porch swing to investigate when he heard the phone ring. Grabbing his beer, he sighed. Whoever it was, it had better be important because it was late. By the time he made it to the phone, it had almost stopped ringing, but he caught it on the lat ring, not bothering to check the caller id. "Mom? Slow down." He wasn't expecting the tearful voice on the other line. Immediately, he straightened his back and braced himself for whatever it was coming, because it wasn't like her to call in a fit over nothing. She was rattling off at a million miles a minute, and he could barely understand a word, except for "your father", "crash", and "died".

And for a moment, the whole world stopped spinning. Everything stopped, the clock, the crickets, her, until the moment everything came back in a rush. "Mom, I've got to go." He heard everything he needed to hear, and he wasn't in a place to be that much comfort to her. "Call Logan. Call Tony. Hell, call Simon -- get one of them to come over, but I've got to go." She'd need someone to be there for her, but he couldn't be, not right then. And so, he hung up the phone and set it on the counter, shocked, and unsure of how it was that he was feeling. So, he grabbed his beer and took a large drink, downing the rest of it before he crossed the kitchen and pulled the bourbon down, along with a glass filled it, then carried it along with the bottle upstairs.

From the doorway of the kids room, he watched as Grace with her beautiful long hair put their children down, soothing each of them as they faded off to sleep. The bourbon tasted good, but he probably should have opted for something stronger. Cade wasn't the kind to drink away his problems, but this was different. "Hey," he whispered, trying to gain his wife's attention. "We need to talk." And then he downed what was left in the glass.

Habits

Early Bird

The early bird gets the worm, or at least that's what Cade has been told his entire life. There was a time when he had to be drug out of bed, but nowadays he's leaned to take care of things when he can, which often means rising before the sun does.

Coffee

Cade loves his coffee, and is known for drinking it morning, noon, and night. The stereotypical bad coffee at the firehouse is something that he's hoping to get rid of as he schools those at the station on how the stuff should actually taste.

Everything has it's place

Cade has certain places where he puts particular things. Where he thinks something should go and where his family thinks it should go isn't always the same thing. For example, he usually puts his baseball bag on the back of the backed bar stools in the kitchen when he stops in for a visit, despite the fact that Tara keeps asking him not to. It's not disrespect, it's habit.

Quirks

Pocket full of sweets

Cade has an incredible sweet tooth and to overcome this, he almost always has a pocket full of sweets of some variety in case he's out of the house. Usually it's hard caramels, but sometimes he'll have tootsie rolls or bit of honeys.

No touching

So, Cade really doesn't like it when his food touches. It's something he never grew out of as a kid. It's pretty simple. Food rules.

What some call trash, others call treasure

Cade has a nature exhibit in his house filled with all sorts of things from nature that he's found and collected over the years. At first, his parents thought he was very strange, but when he put the stuff together for show, it actually turned out to be quite impressive.

Hobbies

Shooting Pool

Cade enjoys going to down to the pool hall and shooting pool, whether it's by himself or with his friends, this is something that he's always enjoyed doing. When he needs to get off the ranch, this is usually where you can find him, though if he's not at the pool hall, there's a handful of other places he might be too.

Fishing

Sometime life can just get to be too much. When this is the case, Cade's been known to grab his fishing pole and head out to his spot for a bit of alone time. Fishing is something that he and Logan used to do when he was younger, and now that he's older, it's what he does when he needs a little bit of peace. He has a couple secret fishing spot that he hits, and when he's out, he often comes home with fish for his mom to make that night.

Horses

Cade loves horses on a general level. It might help that his dad is a large animal vet, that his grandparents are ranchers, and that he lives on Brook Haven, but he's always had a deep love for these animals, and is happy that they have enough land to have them at their home. Horses have a way of healing you and showing you all the things you want to fix in yourself, and while Cade can be very demanding, he knows how to be gentle. He's an excellent rider and enjoys going out for a day trip on nicer days.

Journaling

The act of journaling is a very private thing for Cade. This isn't the sort of thing that he sits around the house doing, but rather goes into the privacy of his own room to write down his thoughts and feelings. This became a habit a few years ago, and now that he's doing his own things, it's become a great tool for him.

Baseball

Growing up in Trader's Bend, people in town had thought that he'd run off and go play ball, but as much as he enjoyed it, he never thought that he had a career in it, and wasn't surprised when he didn't get scouted.

Skills

Woodworking / Carpentry • advanced

Cade grew up watching his dad do woodworking projects, and make additions onto their home, as they became necessary. This is something that he learned to do by watching Keith and having him explain it to him as they went along. He's working on the furniture for the house he recently purchased.

cookingl • proficient

His mother(Tara) always did most of the cooking since the time that she joined them, but she also insisted on making sure that Cade knew how to cook for himself. As much as he'd rather raid her kitchen and sit down at her table for dinner, being able to cook has proven to be a pretty essential skill.

Spanish • Fluent

Spanish is something that Cade was taught as a young child from his father. Both his fraternal grandparents speak fluent Spanish, and as a result, he does too.

ASL • proficient

Sign language comes in handy when speaking to some people in the family, and for that reason, Cade has learned it alongside his father. Tara is fluent, where as he is simply proficient, but he can communicate.

Interests

Hollistic Medicine

The idea of treating the entire body and not just the symptoms is something that Cade is really interested in. He's always had an interest in science -- medical science, to be more specific-- so this shouldn't be too surprising for those who know him well. The idea behind holistic medicine is treating and looking at all of the influences that lead to illnesses. He thinks that this is neat.

Homesteading

The idea of living off of the land you live on has always been intriguing to Cade, and it's something that he'd be interested in potentially trying his hand at. He'd love to one day have garden that supplies his own food, along with animals that provide wool for fabric. Some might see it as simple, but he sees it as peaceful.

BDSM

Whether this is because it's in his blood, or because the undertones of his parent's relationship, the interest has always been there. This isn't something that he's really open about, no one really knows about his interest in BDSM and domestic discipline (two separate things). The last thing he needs is to be labeled some sort of creep -- his interest is a healthy one.

Desired Plots

Making Investments

Cade is actually quite excellent about being quiet when it's best. He's incredibly observant, speaks when the moment is right, and he's incredibly mature, especially for only being 19. He's hard working, and not interested in having things handed to him. It would be interesting if a business man came along and suggested that he make an investment in something bigger than just his land or his house, especially if it was a well meant, but overall not good. With a wife and baby to support (here soon), Cade doesn't have time or room for those sorts of errors. While money isn't exactly tight, he's also not rolling in it either. He makes enough to support their family, but not enough to go off and make some bad business investments -- that's just not a risk that he's comfortable making.

The Ceremony

His Dad's catholic, but Cade is aware that Grace isn't and when it comes to their wedding ceremony, he wants it to be whatever she wants. After all, she's not exactly picking her groom, she should be able to have whatever sort of a wedding she likes. For that reason, he's going to be on the look-out for people to really help her get this accomplished. He'd rather have the ceremony sooner than later, but if she's not comfortable doing it pregnant they can always get married at the courthouse and have the ceremony after she's given birth. Either way it happens, he'd like to find some people to help her plan that aren't going to take over.

Not who you think

This plot is for a teenager. Cade volunteers his time on Brook Haven, quite a bit of it considering the fact that he's bought his own land, built his own house, and managed to make sure that it all looked nice in the processing. So, when he's not working, or working on his house, he's on the ranch helping out. The Brooks are family, but I'd love it if one of the kids mistook him for a teenager working the program because I think it could be good fun that could lead to an interesting relationship.

Grace was sent to Brook Haven Ranch by her parents, who felt that she was defiant, disobedient, and obstinate at home. More than they wanted to help her, they wanted her out of their hair. She frustrated them to no end with her vegetarian lifestyle, her refusal to participate in the slaughter of animals on their homestead, and failed to produce even the "simplest" of baked goods to sell at the market. In many ways, Grace was a liability to her parents, and so they found the most convenient way to get her out of their hair: They enrolled her at Brook Haven Ranch.

It broke Grace's heart. A good girl who has always done her best to please her parents, she's struggled throughout her entire lifetime to do what they wanted of her. On the ranch she has been obedient, considerate, polite, and compassionate with her peers. She's learned to ride quickly, is excellent with horses, and she has gone the distance to help other students to learn how to make the most of their experience on the ranch as well. Helpful and kind, she's known as someone who is a friend to everyone.

Grace is also a strange person. She belongs to a family of witches who have practiced witchcraft for many generations, and her beliefs, therefore, are different from most other students on the ranch. This makes her an easy target for bullying by some of the pushier students on the ranch, but she's always tolerated bullying with a brave face.

This is the first time that Grace has been in school, having been previously home schooled, and so she's still adjusting to the academics and the schedule for education, since she's more accustomed to working every day of the year without much of a break.

Now her home relationships are in turmoil, and it's tough for Grace since her parents and sisters live in Trader's Bend. She's not sure whether they're ever going to come to see her on the visitation days, and she's trying hard not to care.

Grace & Cade
<3 First of all, I cannot wait for these two to meet and for Cade to tell her that they're getting married, and that he knows she's pregnant, and all of the other stuff. I'm excited to see how it all plays out. I won't go into all the details because you know how this goes, but I am so excited to have him in play!

Something at the event, or is that too much drama? Yay or nay? I'd like for Rhett to see Cade before he runs into Keith and puts two and two together.

Cade & Karl
Cade sounds like everything Karl respects in a student, so I imagine they got along, and Karl approves, maybe more than many people in town, of his current life choices. I have two thoughts for where that might go. One is that Karl and his wife are pretty gossipy; Cade probably doesn't know that, but could easily find out, and it might be interesting if he used to respect Karl when he was a student, but now as an adult has to decide how to deal with Karl as a fellow, if younger, adult. The other, rather different, idea is that Karl would be pretty supportive of Cade staying in town rather than going to college, and might be a mentor and source of support while Cade is trying to persuade the other older adults in his life to accept that.

Nolan's been in foster care since he was two. He excelled at academics, and spent most of his childhood keeping apart from the other foster kids, believing that his intelligence made him special. When he hit his teens, that began falling apart as the competition to be the best student around intensified. His escalating emotions led him to brandish a knife at a foster parent, which got him sent to a group home. Teachers who worried about his performance recommended him to Brook haven.

Cade & Nolan
I could easily see Nolan mistaking Cade for a slightly older teen at the program, and possibly being pretty snippy with him because of that - and possibly a little defensive for a while once he realizes that he screwed up.
