Personality: Jasmine is mega shy, hating being pointed out in class and has trouble going up and talking to people she doesn't know. She is known to stutter when people ask her a question, or blush deeply. Although, dispite her shyness, she loves to sing and play her piano. Infact, she even writes her own music. She is constantly singing when alone, but if caught, she will just go completely silent, into an almost mute state. She doesn't mean to be as shy as she is, but she was bullied when she was younger, which caused her to be overly causious around other people.

Likes:
- Singing
- Playing her piano
- English sweets, expecially humbugs
- Her family
- Vintage clothes

Dislikes:
- Bullies
- Public speaking
- Talking to people she doesn't know
- Being snuck up on
- Loud people

Abilities/Skills: Jasmine can sing and play piano extremely well. She learnt to play at the age of seven and started writing her own music at eight.

Weaknesses: Speaking in public and talking to people. Just anything slightly outgoing.
History:
Birdy was born on 15 May 1996, in Lymington, Hampshire. Her mother is a concert pianist, and Birdy learned to play piano at the age of seven, and began writing her own music at the age of eight. In grade 3 she was severly bullied and it caused her to become extremely introverted. She was homeschooled from grade 5 to now, where her parents decided she should meet more children her age. She sings and plays the piano. Her great uncle was the actor Sir Dirk Bogarde. She is of mixed Scottish, English, Belgian (Flemish) and Dutch ancestry.

A young brown haired girl looked up suddenly in slight shock as a girl entered the previously empty classroom. Jasmine had thought this classroom was going to be free for the next too periods, hence why she was there. Her music sheets were spred out over three desks joined together so she could see them all clearly, making it easier for her to write on them. In a mad dash she started to pack up her things, eyes lowered, head down. A piece of paper drifted over by the desk near the window and she froze. She couldn't ask for it back.... and if the girl gave it back it might be an invite for her to start talking... And Jasmine had trouble conversing. She clenched at her skirts of her dress, ruffling the cream spotted chocolate material. She couldn't leave without the sheet music, but she couldn't stay and stumble through a tedious converstation... Oh god... Help... Jasmine was stranded.

A sheet of paper flew by her. Instinctively she grabbed it and looked around. The only other person in the room was another girl, so Mali used her super duper detective skills to deduce that it belonged to her. She happened to see that it was sheet music, but she didn't read it. Mali knew what it was like to write music; until you wanted the world to see it, until you were ready, you didn't want anyone to find out.
She quietly walked over to the girl's desk. She looked terrified. Cheezus, am I that scary? Mali thought. She knew she could come across as intimidating, but never that much. Gracious.
"Um, I think this belongs to you." She flashed the girl a small smile. "I hope whatever you're working on turns out the way you want it to. I'm Mali, by the way." The Mali, not wanting to disturb the composer at work, went back and sat at her place and took out her own notebook and started writing lyrics that had just popped into her mind.

She watched the girl walking over, her heart beatng faster and she flinched slightly as the piece of paper was held out to her. She stared at it and carefully extended her hand to take it, eyes darting up at her to make sure she didn't try anything. Jasmine was like a deer, never trusting until she fully understood the person's motivation. Her fingers closed around the papper and she quickly withdrew her hand, bowing her head slightly and muttering a stuttered thankyou. Her eyes widened at the girls introduction... Usually she was invisable, never being noticed or wanting to be noticed. It suited her just fine, seeing as she was cronically shy and nervous, But it was good to know that some people were nice enough to atleast give her a name. She smiled slightly, blushing as she muttered. "I-I'm Birdy..."

The girl had blushed as she'd mumbled her name."I-I'm Birdy..."
As Mali started to write, her hand flying over the page, she paused for a moment to look at Birdy. "It's great to meet you. I really like your name, by the way - it's very unique. And you know, I have no clue what's happened in your past, but you don't have to be afraid of me. I'm a new kid." Mali laughed at her self-deprecating joke.
"But seriously though, I'm not that scary - I only make myself look tough. But don't tell that to anyone else; I can't have my secret uncovered quite yet." Mali flashed Birdy a quick smile before she turned back to her lyrics.
Maybe, Mali thought, if I show her I'm not nearly as frightening as I make myself seem, she won't be so scared. I hadn't meant to frighten her. I'd just wanted to keep the jerks away. Mali sighed, her hand racing to get the words down once again.

"It's great to meet you. I really like your name, by the way - it's very unique. And you know, I have no clue what's happened in your past, but you don't have to be afraid of me. I'm a new kid." Jasmine watched in amazement as the girl laughed slightly. This person... She was actually talking to her? Like completely talking! She wasn't sure how to handle it... She sat down at the desk, her eyes cast down at her work. She blushed slightly when the girl said something about keeping the jerks away... She bit her lip slightly and muttered, almost silently, "I-I w-won't tell... N-No one listens t-to me anyw-way..." Birdy started to write again slowly, but made a mistake quickly, rubbing out the light pencil on the sheet music.

"I-I w-won't tell... N-No one listens t-to me anyw-way..." Birdy had said. What does that even mean? That she won't tell about her past? Mali wasn't expecting her to at all. She was only trying to show the girl that she wasn't anything to fear. Mali realized Birdy was very much like a bird - she had to be very careful not to frighten it.

"I didn't mean you had to tell me, Birdy," Mali said calmly, soothingly. "I wasn't even expecting you to. I just wanted you to know that I'm not like whoever was horrible to you. In fact, I used to be a lot like you..." Mali stopped herself before she remembered anything. It was all just too painful.

"Horrible? I d-don't think anyone was horrible t-to me... I've n-never really liked being ar-round people... I-Its too loud and claustrophobic..." She looked up slightly from through her hair, one hand on her cheek, hiding half of her face. Green eyes with stormy grey highlights peered over at her. They were curious, but causious. She wasn't sure whether to trust the girl or not...

"Horrible? I d-don't think anyone was horrible t-to me... I've n-never really liked being ar-round people... I-Its too loud and claustrophobic..." Mali couldn't believe it. This girl was terrified.

"Birdy, I'm not going to hurt you, and you're not talking to a group of people. You're talking to me. You really don't need to worry, honest." She tried smiling again, hoping it worked.

She listened to her, a ghost of a smile on her lips and nodded slowly, but then looked down to her music. She wasn't sure what to say... She wasn't usually treated like this, but she wasn't going to let down her guard just like that. She barely knew the girl... Even is she said sh wasn't going to hurt her or anything, that wasn't what she was really afraid of. It was the whole fact that this Mali girl was just that, another person... Jasmine was a shy, withdrawn person. She stuttered because of it.

Birdy didn't say anything, she just smiled - almost, nodded, and then went back to her music. Mali was quiet for a minute, letting her inner turmoil work its way through her body.

"You know," Mali said suddenly, "I used to be a lot like you. Now I'm kind of worse, in some ways."

"O-Oh?" She looked over at her again slightly, sort of shocked. How could someone be worse then her? She was the epitiny of shy!

(Not sure if 'epitiny' is spelt right... or is even a word, so another word to use there is 'pinicle')

"O-Oh?" Birdy had asked.

"Yeah, I know it seems crazy, but I was." Then she'd started performing.

She watched her, slightly confused. This girl couldn't have been like her... No way... She never said a word, just looked back down to her music, but she couldn't concentrate, it was too loud and busy, so she started to pack up again, putting her music in a folder then slipped it into her leather satchel and slung it over her shoulder. Jasmine stood up and muttered a small goodbye before heading towards the door.

She heard the girl say goodbye. "Wait - Birdy." She hurried to catch up to her. "It's my first day here. Mind helping a fellow musician out? I'd love to hear you music." Mali flashed a smile.

"Y-You want to hear MY music?" She turned around slowly to look at her. Birdy was significantly shorter then the girl which made her feel slightly daunted.
"I-I don't like to perform in front of people... It makes me nervous..."
