Factions, Families, Clans, and Empires
Black hair and bright blue eyes.
Veronica is a kind, smart girl. She's pretty confident, though, like all people, she has her insecurities. She's a straight-A student and a bit of a teachers pet. She loves to create things and write. She can be shy about her artwork or her singing voice. She loves both the quiet of the forest and the noise of a crowd at the mall. She's quite cunning and sneaky, knowing how to get her way when she is dead-set on something. She can be a bit of a flirt, and sometimes a drama queen. Even though she likes to get her way, she knows when she's defeated and when to back down about something. She's not easily annoyed, but certain people, she just wants to snap their necks. She has a bit of a temper that flares when she's annoyed or aggravated. She's pretty good at reading those around her and she can often tell when someone's lying to her. Likes being called 'V' or Ronnie.
Veronica went to school in the morning but couldn't focus, she was too excited that her friend JayJay arrived back in town! V had seen Zac hanging with the new girl Saidi and didn't know what to think of it.. But what she did think was that the new guy Chad was a hunk and she wanted to get to know him <3
((lunch over right?)) Ronnie goes to her locker and starts getting her books when she closes her locker she saw Chad with Miharu. "What is she doing?" V thinks to herself. V walks over to them, "Hey guys, I don't think we've met but I'm Veronica, call me Ronnie though :)" She gives a glance to Chad and a small wink "If you guys need any help around the school I can help with that. See you in class?"
Watches Chad as he keeps glancing at Miharu and thinks "Why aren't I good enough? I always get turned down...*sigh*" Says to Chad "And you guys are...?"
smiles "Well I guess I'll see you around" Ronnie starts walking off but drops a paper making sure Chad will notice. Its a little blue sticky note with "Call me 333-4343-1907 ;)" written on it.
Veronica stood at her locker with her phone. No one knew what she was doing, most people would guess just texting but it was more than that. She was looking at her pictures on her phone, pictures of her dad. Her dad recently just left and she hasn't seen or talked to him for a month. A small tear rolled down her cheeks and she wiped it hoping no one would see. She turned off her phone as she heard the bell ring for class. grabs books and walks to class
" Um, ya I'm fine, I gotta get to class..." V rushes off to class, holding back her tears
On Ronnies walk home from school she gets a phone call "Hello" On the other end is Jaqueline who is crying and venting to her. Veronica comforts her but could honestly care less. The only reason these two are so close is because Ronnies Mom works for JayJay's Dad.
When she finally gets off the phone with Jaqueline she decides to go to the Bubble Lounge to do homework and bowl. If only Chad was there with her talking to her, explaining math to her, with his arms around her 'teaching' her how to bowl <3
(( I'm gonna be a guy but bare with me, I don't know if he'll bevery good ;))
Sitting at table by bowling alley working on homework The square root of 225 is... 15! *mumbling to herself* (She was never very good at math)
Sat and watched Saidi and Zac be all cutesy Veronica started to imagine her and Chad then snapped herself out of it. "He probably doesn't even like me, I'm obsessing again!"
Veronica packed up her stuff. She couldn't stand watching the happy couple any longer, so she decided to go home. From the Bubble Lounge to her house is a 5 minute walk but you have to pass by the pool. Ronnie was listenning to her iPod on her way home but when she passed the pool she couldn't believe her eyes. He's with her? Of coarse... I guess she's prettier and he probably thinks she's nicer since Jaqueline is my friend... V just kept walking and decided that she'd never find anyone. She almost gave up all hope.
As Veronica made her way to her house she kept feeling like someone was watching her. She raced inside and locked the door. When she got in her kitchen she openned the pantry to get a granola bar. Then she saw them, 5 more empty bottles. She tried to sneak into her room but her mother was waiting there in the hallway. "Mom can I just get to my room?" She tried to pass by but he was blocker her way. Now, Veronica did not live in a big home and her room was fairly small. She was about to walk away when her mom grabbed her shoulders. "Honey where do you think you're going?!" Veronica didn't say anything and her mother punched her arms multiple times. "I'm sorry mom!" But Veronica knew she'd have bruises tomorrow. I guess it's a long sleeve tomorrow *sigh*
Veronica snuck out her window with her baby blue satchel. Inside the satchel was her keyboard, and notebook. She walked to the park and just played around with some chords. Little did V know that Mirahu lived quite close to the park. Veronica was singing pretty loud and she didn't care. "I want you to love me, for who I am. I want you to hold my hand. If you could only see the truth inside of me.." she sung.. Singing was her way of dealing with her drunk mother and recently disappearing father.
She jotted down the notes in her notebook and just layed in the grass. Staring at the stars she closed her eyes imagining her dad. She was still humming that catchy tune and the tears began to fall. She hated crying in front of people. She wanted everyone to think she's fine, and for the longest time while Jay was gone no one cared.
"Oh hey", *veronica wiped her eyes so Mirahu wouldn't see her make up smudged but it didnt help* Sobbing and sniffling quietly she raised her head and looked at Mirahu.
"Of all the people to show up... and tell you?" Veronica looked around, Well who else am I gonna talk to? She hesitated to speak but then started rambling on.. " Well my mom is an alcoholic, and when my dad was here he used to help her... I guess he couldn't take it anymore.. Today I went in the pantry saw 6 more empty bottles than yesterday.. She cornered me and...." Ronnie couldn't finish and just started playing with her hair in her fingers.
" thanks I guess" the air was awkward and Veronika just had silent tears rolling down her cheeks. " I'm sorry for you too.. I guess we have some things in common. My dad recently left, with no note or anything... We were so close.. " She glances at Mirahu and has full on eye contact for a minute. It was like they were reading each others minds. She didn't have the heart to tell her about the beatings but did say " Can we be friends? It might seem like I'm popular but I honestly have no real friends... Jaqueline is a different story, you will meet her tomorrow.. I suggest avoiding her though..."
"Wow thanks" she squealed. Veronica got up and patted her self down of all loose blades of grass. " Jaqueline can be a mean person but we grew up together and she knows all my secrets. If i was to betray her, who knows what she'd say..."
Veronica walked into the kitchen and sat down. " Hey " she said while glancing at chad. "Funny to see you here?" V thought Maybe it's meant to be? No why is he here with her? Must have been quite a special swimming event... Veronica looked at the old soul " Hello my name is Veronica, what's your name? "
" Wow... I didn't know the whole story... I just thought they died... Her life is way worse than mine..."
*phone starts to ring* "Thats a beautiful name, Are you going to get that?" she says smiling at the elderly woman. Chad seems to just be looking down and V thinks is he thinking of me? I am obsessing way to much over him.. ugh.
Veronica, having a very good ear, hears what 'Juliet' is saying. I thought she said we are Miharu's only friends?
Veronica was already at school. She had gone early to get some tutoring from her favorite teacher, Mr. Welsh. She had heard Mr. Welsh was a great teacher but rumors started last year that he was seeing and possibly 'sleeping' with a student. He seemed alright but sometimes she thought he was checking her out. Anyways, she packed up her books and headed to her locker in her black skinnies and bright pink long sleeved shirt. I hope Jay doesn't say anything.. I know she'll know.. she thought. V closed her locker and was heading to her first class when she tripped. She grabbed her ankle "OOOOOooooww!!" She cried but everyone in the halls had scattered to their next class.
Veronica struggling in the hallway, trying to crawl to the closest door at the end of the hall. She leaves her books on the ground and starts pulling herself by her arms. She gets to the door and knocks and lies down on the floor. The door creaks open and it's Mr.Welsh. "Veronica? What are you doing on the floor?" He helps her up and helps her to the nurse's office. "Thanks s
