Personality: Pretty. Talented. Friendly. Anybody with eyes can see that Cassidy has all the traits to make a person physically attractive. She takes pride in her appearance, but that shouldn’t lead you to believe she’s only a pretty girl. Believe it or not, Cassidy does try in other areas in life. Played soccer for a while. Sketches and works in her spare time. Of course, because her circle of friends is so shallow and vapid, she tries to downplay these things. Only her family and the people she works with really know that there’s more to Cassidy than a pretty face, a toned body, and a killer fashion sense.

Cassidy has always been insecure. She won’t tell you, but it’s the truth. Being mixed race, she never really felt like she could identify with anything, and a horrible allergic reaction to a flower left her with many small spots on her face and body. They’ve since faded and Cassidy no longer feels torn between identifying with one side of the family versus the other, but someone who’s insecure with themself doesn’t always grow out of it. Sometimes they just find new things to be insecure about. As soon as the world deemed Cassidy to be stereotypically attractive and acceptable, she’s felt a strong need to look beautiful and act like she has it together 24/7. She blends in seamlessly with the most conceited and vain popular kids. Talking makeup and hair extensions and which celebrity perfume smells better or last longer. She’s been doing it for so long that sometimes she forgets that there’s more to life that instagram.

Cassidy does have a genuine interest in makeup and beauty products, but she wouldn’t give them so much power over her life if she wasn’t afraid of being cast aside the minute she deviated from the norm. In private, she loves to draw and feels proud of herself when she makes her own money. On the inside, she’s fiercely loyal and cares deeply once she feels like that person cares for her. She likes morning runs and reading late at night. But when she feels like it’s time to take on the role of “pretty Cassidy”, all of those things are set to the side. What you’re left with is a person who’ll say and do anything to fulfill the role that both she and society has created for herself. The self-absorbed, popular, person who couldn’t care for anyone who didn’t look like her. The pretty one.

History: Cassidy grew up an only child. Both her parents worked minimum wage jobs and knew they couldn't afford one child, let alone more. Her mother was a substitute teacher and her father worked for a cleaning company. Every morning he (along with the rest of the janitorial crew) would sweep each floor of the office buildings in Dallas and clean up. Her mother only worked a few days a week, sometimes more, sometimes less. As a result, Cassidy found herself passed around between family members and friends, always feeling like the odd-one-out. When she was four her parents divorced. The constant money struggles had eaten away at whatever love they felt for each other. And even though they'd never admit it, Cassidy always felt that her existence was part of the cause. After all, they were working day and night to make money for her, weren't they?

When she was seven, Cassidy and her mom moved away so her mother could teach full time. Her mom had been going to school thanks to money left to her after her own mother had died, and finally got the degree and certification she needed to make a better life for herself and her child. At the same time, Cassidy started playing soccer. Her coach called her a natural and her mother hoped that she'd get a scholarship to play in college. One day while playing in the park, Cassidy kicked the ball into a patch of flowers. Immediately after she fished it out, her face and body broke out all over. Her breathing was all messed up. Something had given her an allergic reaction and left her with numerous circular scars. When she returned to school, the teasing started, and although she stilled loved soccer, something about that event made it hard for her to kick a ball again. She spent more time indoors and took up drawing. As with soccer, she took to it quickly and used it as a replacement to the sport.

As she grew up, her scars faded and that child-like fear disappeared. She went back to playing soccer and loved it. However, the same people who once teased her realized Cassidy wasn't the ugly kid with scars - she was pretty. They treated her differently, and wanted her to participate when they picked on "ugly" kids. Afraid of going back to how things once were, Cass played along. She got into make up and fashion. She dropped the care-free tomboy and adopted the persona she needed to fit in with the popular crowd. Eventually her mother remarried and she ended up with a step-sister, and Cassidy hasn't seen her real dad since her parents split years ago.

So begins...

Sophia stretched as she sat up in her bed. She always woke up just a few minutes before her alarm went off at 7:15. Getting up, she walked to the bathroom in her pink pajamas. She got into the shower and got out about 15 minutes later, brushed her teeth, and got dressed in a lace top with a flowy flower skirt and leggings underneath. Lastly, she put on her necklace that Oscar had given her for their 2 year anniversary. Walking down to the kitchen, her mother was washing dishes and greeted her. Sophia grabbed a banana from the basket of fruit on the kitchen table and ate it semi-quickly. Picking up her backpack, she said goodbye to her mother and began her 10 minute walk to Magnolia High.

Upon reaching the school, Sophia greeted those she passed on the way to her locker, smiling sweetly as she always did. She headed inside to her locker and placed her backpack inside, seeing a note from Oscar within the space. She smiled, closed her locker, and taking it into the bathroom to read it, just to be safe.

|| Cassidy Banks || The Pretty Sister || #008080 || Car ||


Cassidy sat on the bathroom counter top, legs crossed, face only inches away from the glass. Plucking her eyebrows was serious business - any mistake would give her at least two weeks of humiliating looks and judgmental laughs. With the precision and dexterity of a surgeon, she pulled out the last unwanted hair before filling them out with an eyebrow pencil and sighing with relief. She was finally done with her face. Cassidy hopped off the counter and took a few steps back to look over the finished product. She'd been up for at least an hour and a half - probably earlier than most teens got up to go to school - because it took some time to look like you "woke up this way."

Finally satisfied with her face, Cassidy sprayed her wavy hair with some hair spray before walking over to her bed where she'd already laid out some clothes. She'd recently went shopping with some friends and was excited to wear a new white crop top she'd bought. Pulling it on carefully - it'd be a shame to mess up an hour's worth of make up - she paired the shirt with some ripped skinny jeans and black dr. martins.

Cassidy grabbed her backpack and phone, then cut off the lights. She wasn't in a rush to get to school, but the sooner she left, the more time she could spend with Evelyn. Even if it was just a car ride. Their relationship wasn't exactly public at the moment, and it tended to limit when and where they could act like an actual couple.

Of course they could just tell everyone, but that's besides the point...

Cassidy stopped by Evelyn's door and knocked on it rapidly. "Ready to go whenever," Cassidy smiled, then made her way downstairs to the kitchen. Her mom, already downstairs putting some dishes away, started to say something to her before Cassidy cut her off. "Relax," Cassidy teased, grabbing a muffin without even breaking her stride. She knew the drill. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you shouldn't skip breakfast, blah blah blah. Before she knew it, she was outside leaning against the passenger side of Eve's car.

With the abrupt sound of a buzzer Evelyn was awake and stumbling around her room, eyes still closed, lights still of, changing into her outfit for the day. She felt her way through the closet as opposed to turning the light on, and picked out a pair of black leggings to go with a dark blue sweatshirt that was pulled off the top shelf. Ev was caught of guard for a second when Cassidy knocked on her door. The knocked caused her to nearly fall as she crossed the room to her desk. She switched the small light, looking into the mirror at herself, still half asleep. And then applied eye shadow lazily, lined her eyes with a black pencil (the most important thing), and a bit of mascara to finish it off. Having straightened her hair yesterday, Evelyn brushes it into place and decides it would be good enough to last another day. With one last look in the mirror she applied her favorite dark red lip gloss and made her way downstairs.

Descending down the long white staircase, She could already hear her step-mother busy at work in the kitchen. Her father had left early that morning for work, leaving his wife alone in the house to make sure their two daughters made it out the door. Evelyn liked to keep conversations short with this women, especially in the morning, and so a hello and good morning were exchanged quickly as she grabbed her bag and then swung the door open out to the garage.

"Hey" Evelyn said simply, smiling for the first time today. She made her way to Cassidy, her backpack banging against the garage wall several times, in the tight space. "That's new" She looks down at her step-sisters crop top feeling the edge of the fabric. "Well, I guess we better go." Evelyn seems to speak in simple terms, at least at this time in the morning, it's only to be expected. She quickly gives Cassidy a kiss on the lips before running around the car and sliding into the drivers seat. School not being to far away, they soon reach their destination, Magnolia High School.

"What, this?" Cassidy asked, feigning surprise with exaggerated movements, "wore it just for you, babe." She kissed her back before opening the passenger side door and getting into the car. She'd be lying if she said it didn't make her feel good whenever Eve noticed something new she bought, or if she'd done something a little different with her look. Cassidy tried pretty hard to look as best as she could - in public, at least. It took some of the stress off when someone paid a little attention. She leaned back in her seat comfortably, closing her eyes and letting the sun warm her face. Before she knew it they were at the school.

Cassidy stretched her arms a bit before grabbing her bag and stepping out of the car. The first part of the school day was always somewhat rough for Cassidy. She didn't hate school, or mornings, or not sleeping in. She just felt like it killed her mood getting to be one person at home, then acting like someone else at school. Watching Eve get out of the car, she felt somewhat guilty. Regardless of whether or not they could be seen, she wouldn't take the risk of kissing her goodbye or even hugging, really. "I guess I'll see you later," she nodded before turning on her heels and walking straight into the school. She greeted a couple people as she made her way to her locker and grabbed the books she actually need.

Eventually Cassidy made her way to class. There was still a little time left before she actually had to do something productive, so she pulled out her phone and finished her muffin after finding a seat in the back of the class.

Upon their arrival at school Cassidy was quick to exit the car and make her way towards the building. "Yup" Evelyn muttered watching her girlfriend stride with confidence into the school. It was hard watching her go every morning, watching her be so incredibly paranoid that they couldn't even walk to the door together. At least it was a quick goodbye and the pain was short lived as Ev snapped out of her trance. She pulled her backpack over her shoulder and locked the car before following the same path Cassidy had taken through the main entrance.

Inside students buzzed around, standing next to open lockers, exchanging homework answers, and gossiping. Evelyn took the nearest staircase up the the second floor, where her locker was located. She spun the dial quickly and swung the door open. One of Cassidy's close friends passed her and she stuff her backpack into the locker. "Cassidy here today?" The girl asked, her flowery scent leaving a trail as she passed. "Yes" Ev responded with out looking up. This exchange of conversation happened weekly and especially on game days ...because God forbid the girl missed a game... Evelyn shut the locker and made her way down the hall towards first period.
