Dalton was born in a small cow town in Georgia. He doesn't remember much from that time, that being said he does recall his mother telling him he was much happier back then, of course, who isn't happy at five? It was not long after Dalton started school that debt forced his father to close the farm and they moved to New York. Dalton tried to adjust, but his accent marked him as different and his newly impoverished position made it impossible for Dalton to 'keep up' with the other kids. Throughout middle school, Dalton dealt with some light bullying due to his awkward frame, deep southern accent and obvious hand me down clothes. He did manage to make a couple friends, Holly and Trevor but into high school Freshman year, Trevor moved to Japan with his military family and Holly was accepted to a prestigious musical school in Philadelphia.
Despite his problems fitting in early on in elementary and middle school. By his sophomore year of high school Dalton was actually making progress in establishing himself socially. With a colorful sense of humor and tendency to draw attention to himself with joking outbursts or even local talent shows where he performed as a talented magician and comedian. Dalton was actually quite well known by many by his junior year. However, the death of his father and the failing health of his mother placed great pressure on the teenager. By the time he was in his senior year, when Dalton wasn't goofing off in school as if the world didn't seem to weigh on him. He worked as a magician for kids parties part time as well as perform in the local amateur comedy and talent club, the 'Laughing Colanderat' for money to help his home get by as well pay for his mother's medical bills,
When the chance to get away from the stress at the Ski Resort in Colorado opened up, he jumped at it despite hating snow. It was just a chance to unwind. Not to mention ask his crush out, someone he felt rather confident with. But he didn't get the chance,on the second day a freak earthquake hit and cut him short. Bummed he shut himself in upstairs for the rest of the day playing his obsolete Dreamcast, his prized possession. WRITING PROMPT #3:
The laughter echoed through the air. It's melody playing a symphony of enjoyment as the elementary school aged children screamed for more. Dalton smiled with them, dressed in a worn but clean rented black suit which made him look more like a butler than a magic act. He had started the act simple, just like he did with all of them. First drawing the children in with a little illusion where he showed the crowd a playing card, then cut it, before revealing the card to be very much in one piece after some elaborate handy work. This wowed the kids, well, those who were not more entertained by poking him in the leg or just straight up ignoring him. The young performer kept the show up before asking for a volunteer. A young golden haired boy, the birthday boy now eight years old jumped up. Placing the child behind a curtain, he finally revealed his final act, where it appeared as if the kid was actually hovering several inches off the ground.
Of course none of this was 'real' but the glow upon every child's face was clear. To them it was the real deal. Their eyes flashed with bewilderment and intrigue as they tried to figure out his secret. Even some of the adults were surprised at the trick. After the show was wrapped up, Dalton sat down upon a stool and took a question and answers session. Of course many children asked him how he had accomplished his allusions, wasting their questions. But it was the final girl whose question had actually nearly broke through the biggest charade of all.
The faux smile upon Dalton's face.
"Are you happy?" The question was a simple one. The answer should have been. That he wasn't. Dalton had no 'true' friends. Despite nearly the entire school knowing who he was. He never avoids socialization, but between his school work, pulling these jobs, tending to his mother and seeing to his shamble of an apartment. He had no time to actually see to himself. Looking into this innocent young girl's eyes though Daniel did the only thing he could do. In a hushed voice, as if telling a secret to an entire room full of kids.He lied.
