Salut! Mă cheamă Rubei.
Eu sunt din Romania.
Rubei was born in Romania, her family well off. She tended to get most things she wanted as a kid, and being an only child she was pretty pampered. She was a daddy’s girl. However, her father did a bit of work and dealings behind the scene, somewhat similar to how a mafia might work. This afforded him and his family a higher way of living...but it also came with risks. Some he risked and was able to protect his family. Rubei lived a pretty normal life; though, she had a passion for art. From a young age, her parents saw that she had a creative soul and was able to buy her whatever her heart desired… from art from popular artists, to supplies to create her own. When she was 12, she had her own art gallery in Bucharest. A few even having bought a number of her pieces...though she wondered if her father bought them, or coworkers of his to make her feel accomplished. One of her more popular pieces was a painting of a forest with a speck of red, which was a girl in a red raincoat standing in the middle of a forest. She even showcased much of her work online, getting a bit of a following and she spoke a bit with people from other countries online. Despite being a somewhat popular artist in her city, she didn’t have much close friends. Online, she learned a bit of english...speaking with a few people through voice and befriending them. She even wanted to visit them sometime; which her parent’s would most likely not have a problem with.
However, one evening, people broke into their home. Rubei hid in her parent’s room, hearing ruckus from downstairs. Gunshots. She was scared. Things calmed… and her father came upstairs grabbed her telling her to take whatever she could. She went to her room, grabbed a bag with a few things. They went downstairs, towards their front door. Gunshots in the wall. In the hallway, things were amiss… and as she was pulled out of the house she saw her painting destroyed on the floor.
They ended up going to a country called Chernarus. It was...more rural than Rubei was used to. They were here...hiding for a year or so before the outbreak. Rubei concentrated on her art; her life thrown astrew. They had a computer, though not the best… she was able to keep in touch with friends. Everything in South Zagoria was new to her, she didn’t like it here. Things were starting to get back to normal for her. Then… the country was thrown into chaos. Rubei’s father tried to protect her and her mother. He tried to pay for their safety. He thought that he had a safe place for them, but raiders raided their place and her father and mother got into a gunfight. Somehow infected got into their camp with all the gunshots. Rubei tried to hide. Her father told her to run but she wanted to stay with him.. Scared. The raiders ended up shooting her father and mother right in front of her. Scared, she just stared at them… blood splattered on her face. One of the raiders looked at her, “Run girl!” he demanded, offering her some mercy. She was frozen. But, had he really offered her mercy? He had just killed her parents, the only people she had left in the world…. But her feet kicked in and she ran off into the forest, a blur of red as she disappeared into the trees.
Since then… she’d been surviving on her own, most often scared of others but knowing she can’t survive on her own.
