Gabriel was born in South Yorkshire, England on October 1st, 1996 with his twin Hunter being born 2 minutes earlier. He had a relatively quiet childhood as he always lived in the shadow of Hunter, who was always the one who was in the spotlight. As they grew up, however, they had a really close relationship and our bond was pretty much unbreakable although Gabriel was still a tad jealous of Hunter's confidence and spunk, two traits he lacked.
Gabriel and Hunter started growing apart in about 7th grade, but were still pretty close. Gabriel always found himself alone and quiet, and actually afraid of social interaction while Hunter went off to be the popular guy. This didn't matter to Gabriel, who had books to read and a cozy library to seclude himself into.
He went through most of his high school years following that pattern until about sophomore year. The Beckham family had moved to the States after the twins finished that year. It didn't really change much for Gabriel, as he was still extremely shy. The only difference was that he had picked up a camera and a notebook along with my books and found a passion for writing and photography. He buried myself in those things throughout his junior year, which was his first year at Barfield High School.
In his senior year, he was still awkward for the most of it, until he came across a quiet girl in the hallway when he was late for class one morning. Her name was Anna. He took her to his little sanctuary that he made for himself when he needed to think and they bonded. For the next two months, he found himself falling for her. Her personality started rubbing off on me and I wasn't as shy anymore either. He was finally breaking out of his shell.
Going towards the end of his senior year, he was accepted into the University of Miduna Beach, his #1 pick out of the schools in the area. He had made a new friend Aaron that he planned on moving in with, which he did. At this point, everything in his life was perfect. A few days after graduation, he moved in with Aaron as planned and forged a friendship with his girlfriend Stella.
Around this time, Anna dropped the bomb that she was moving to Florida. He shrugged it off as he knew that they were going to make it work. She spent almost all her last moments in Barfield with him. Now that's she gone, he's definitely feeling sad at her departure. However, he's going to try to move on from it and continue onward with his life as that's what she expects of him.
Now, he's just trying to keep his head in the right direction and keep up with what he started.
