ImageImageImageImageImageAppearance

Lily really is a beautiful girl. She stands well above Minnie at 5"8, and Christopher is only a bit taller than her, giving her a model-like look. She has always been effortlessly slim, weighing 123 pounds, although not underweight. She has dark hair, which can be a caramel colour in the heigh of summer, darkening to a shade of toffee in the winter. Her eyes are are a stunning blue colour and catch people's attention instantly. She has a baby face, which has granted her the ability to get anything with just a bat of her long, thick lashes. Her skin is naturally tanned, though aided by the number of exotic holidays she goes on. She has perfectly straight, white teeth, as a result of her father's expensive dentist. Her cheekbones are high, only intensifying her model-like appearance, and her lips are another of her stand out features. Her skin is virtually flawless, meaning she doesn't require much make up. Her eyes are always heavily made up, usually with a smoky look, though not panda-eyed. Lip stick and blusher are also other staples to her look.

Distinct Markings

Lily's has two piercing in the lobes of each ear. She used to have her belly button pierced, done by a friend while drunk in an attempt to anger her father, but she's since let it heal over, leaving a small scar. She has a tattoo of two small hearts on her left wrist. She also has a a small pair of wins tattooed on the back of her neck.

Likes

+ Sex: Lily is somewhat of a self-professed sex addict. She started experimenting very young, and she was the first of her friends to lose her virginity.

+ Getting Her Own Way: Lily knows just a bat of her lashes will get her anything she wants, and she loves it.

+ Her Friends: She loves the triple threat. They're the best friends she's ever had and she can't wait to see them again.

+ Alcohol: Lily loves to drink. She started with alcopops and beer, but quickly progressed to stronger liquors.

+ Her Sorority: The only bit of college Lily really likes is the sorority she's joined. It's perfect for her and she fits in perfectly.

Dislikes

- Her Father: He cheated on her mother, with another man, and still hides it from her. He's controlling and arrogant too.

- Hangovers: Lily loves to drink, but the bit she hates is the after affects, Though she see's it as a necessary evil.

- College: Lily was bullied into it by her father and didn't want to go there at all. She's now doing her best to screw it up, just to spit her father.

- Abortions: She's had quite a few and it's got much easier, but she certainly doesn't like them by any stretch of the imagination.

- Gay People: Lily is somewhat homophobic. After she caught her father with another man, she's been uncomfortable about homosexuality.

Secrets

Lily's been pregnant several times, and is a regular at the abortion clinic.

She suspects she may be pregnant at the moment, and has no idea who the father is.

When she was eleven, her eighteen year old cousin touched her at a family wedding.

She caught her father cheating on her mother with another man when she was fifteen.
ImageImageImageImageImageImageImagePersonality

Lily is, and always has been, a flirt. She knows exactly what to say and do to get men eating out of the palm of her hand, and combined with her baby-faced, model-like looks, she knows there's not much flirtation can't achieve. Lily isn't a manipulative girl by nature, but the ability to have people do exactly as she wants has led to a tendency towards that kind of behaviour. It's also led to self-confidence, which often serves her well.

Lily's a naturally self-destructive girl, but those leanings have been emphasised by her dislike towards her father. Lily is on a path to destroy herself. She loves risky behaviour, and she loves to act out. She takes little care of herself, drinking far too much and partying all night. She doesn't eat particularly well, and her meals consist of whatever she can find in the cupboard, and something alcoholic. She's even less careful with herself when it comes to sex. She's been promiscuous from a very early age, and started experimenting much younger than most. She was the first to lose her virginity of the triple threat. She goes out, dressed to leave nothing to the imagination. She flirts shamelessly with any old boy who comes her way, often leading herself into situations she can't get out of. She's also fairly forgetful, and quite careless. She's simply not the type who would expect danger or be watching out to avoid situations she doesn't want to be in. Her carelessness has lead to several pregnancies, that have all ended in termination, one way or another. She's felt guilty for the abortions, though she's never ever considered having the baby. Lily can never see herself growing up and being responsible, and for that reason, she can never entertain the idea of being a mother. In fact, she's pretty set on the idea that she doesn't want children at all.

Lily's also very quick to judge. She will make a quick judgement of a person within seconds of laying eyes on them, and it will take a lot to change her mind. She's fairly confident in her beliefs, and it takes a lot to dissuade her from thinking she's right. She will also act on her judgements, treating them like gospel, and she will behave accordingly to the person in question. One of the things she particularly judges on is if someone is homosexual. She's always been pretty openly homophobic, and has no problem with telling people exactly what she thinks of it. Gay people make her uncomfortable, and to her, watching them is like listening to fingernails on a chalk board. All she can think of is her father, and the man she saw him with.

History

Throughout high school, Lily didn't maintain an especially high GPA. It wasn't that she was stupid, but she saw little point in studying and always seemed to have something better to be doing with her life. Despite this, her father had friends within the board at several of the Ivy League colleges, who were more than willing to take bribes in exchange for a place at a prestigious school for his errant daughter. So Lily found herself at Brown University in Rhode Island, come the fall following high school. But Lily didn't want to be there, and she was sure as hell going to make sure her parents knew that.

In the whole of the first semester, Lily turned up twelve classes, and that was only because she was sleeping with the professor. And her father continued to pay off those who complained about his daughter's poor attitude and lack of attendance as Lily partied all night and slept off a hangover in the day, before doing it all over again. She had plenty of friends and was never short of company, but none she was especially close to; not the way she had been to the triple threat. The only thing she enjoyed about the college was joining a sorority. She was offered a place with the popular, preppy, bitchy girls who rules the college, but she found her place among the sorority known for wild parties and an endless parade of men at the door to sleep with, Theta Chi.

Lily lost no sleep worrying about screwing up her life with her partying and drinking, she was simply out with the sole intention of self-destruction and causing he parents as many problems as she possibly could. Lily's only problem was the result of her penchant for sleeping around. Every night, Lily slipped into bed with a different man, far too drunk to even remember their name. She didn't feel guilty about it the next morning, or ever. She was simply out to enjoy herself. She loved the attention, and it was fun. But her first problem came at in the middle of her first semester when she discovered she was six weeks pregnant, and she didn't have the slightest clue who the father might be. The first time she had an abortion, she felt horribly guilty. Guilt was an unfamiliar emotion to Lily, and it came as a shock to her. The first few days after, she simply felt numb, and, for a brief period of time, her bad behaviour and dangerous habits were curtailed. She was much more careful to use protection after that, and she was a little more choosy in deciding who to share a bed with.

But, of course, Lily did eventually slip back into her old ways. She didn't care for seriousness, and she simply could never maintain the life others wanted her to lead. But, Lily's naturally a fairly careless girl, and soon the horror of her abortion was just a memory she had nearly forgotten. And so, she got pregnant again. She had another abortion. But, this time, she felt less. The guilty was less. She knew what to expect and she knew she'd done this before, she could do it again. And so begun the cycle. Lily became quite a regular at the local abortion clinic, and in her mind, life lost its significance. To date, she's had four abortions and a miscarriage, following a night of heavy drinking before she realised she was pregnant. When Mini invited her away to Paris for the summer to get the triple threat back together, Lily leapt at the opportunity to see her old friends. Just before leaving, Lily suspected she was pregnant again, but didn't bother to take a test. Of course, she has no idea who the father is, and the pregnancy has no significance to her anyway. It's just another one. She figures she'll take a test at some point and get another abortion in Paris. Or, she hopes, if she's lucky, she'll lose it and won't have to even bother. She knows the way she lives her life isn't sustainable or right, and she always promises herself she'll be more careful, but she never ever is.

Theme Song


Troublemaker - Olly Murs


You're a troublemaker
You're a troublemaker...
You ain't nothing but a troublemaker, girl

You had me hooked again from the minute you sat down
The way you bite your lip got my head spinnin' around
After a drink or two I was putty in your hands
I don't know if I'll have the strength to stand, oh oh oh...

Trouble troublemaker, yeah
That's your middle name, oh oh oh...
I know you're no good but you're stuck in my brain
And I wanna know...

Why does it feel so good but hurt so bad, oh oh oh?
My mind keeps saying,
"Run as fast as you can"
I say, "I'm done," but then you pull me back, oh oh oh...
I swear you're giving me a heart attack
Troublemaker!

It's like you're always there in the corners of my mind
I see your silhouette every time I close my eyes
There must be poison in those finger tips of yours
'Cause I keep comin' back again for more, oh oh oh...

Trouble troublemaker, yeah
That's your middle name, oh oh oh...
I know you're no good but you're stuck in my brain
And I wanna know...

Why does it feel so good but hurt so bad, oh oh oh?
My mind keeps saying,
"Run as fast as you can"
I say, "I'm done," but then you pull me back, oh oh oh...
I swear you're giving me a heart attack
Troublemaker

Why does it feel so good but hurt so bad, oh oh oh?
My mind keeps saying,
"Run as fast as you can"
Troublemaker
I say, "I'm done," but then you pull me back, oh oh oh...
I swear you're giving me a heart attack
Troublemaker

Maybe I'm insane
'Cause I keep doing the same damn thing
Thinking one day we gon' change
But you know just how to work that back
And make me forget my name
What the hell you do I won't remember
I'll be gone until November
And you'll show up again next summer, yeah!
Typical middle name is Prada
Fit you like a glove, girl
I'm sick of the drama
You're a troublemaker
But damn girl it's like I love the trouble
And I can't even explain why
(Yeah!)

Why does it feel so good but hurt so bad, oh oh oh?
My mind keeps saying,
"Run as fast as you can"
Troublemaker
I say, "I'm done," but then you pull me back, oh oh oh...
I swear you're giving me a heart attack
Troublemaker

Why does it feel so good but hurt so bad, oh oh oh?
My mind keeps saying,
"Run as fast as you can"
Troublemaker
I say, "I'm done," but then you pull me back, oh oh oh...
I swear you're giving me a heart attack
Troublemaker

So begins...

The airport was full of travelers waiting to board there plane that would sweep them off to their destination for the summer. Paris was right outside the big bay windows of the international airport, how they had decide on Paris was simply the thought of escaping to the iconic city of love for the summer, that and the fact that about a year ago she started a pen pal relationship with someone from Paris and they been wanting to meet up for a while.

Minnie and Arabelle waited outside the terminal for Chris and Lily to arrive. They had all take separate flights having to finish up some things, they weren’t all able to leave at the same time. The sisters sat in silence not because they were mad at each other, but because they didn’t really know each other, they didn’t have that sisterly bond, not only because of the age gap, but because they had always had a sort of silent animosity towards each other. Minnie hated it, in fact she loved her little sister more than anything and maybe that’s why she had let her tag along, because deep down she hoped maybe this trip just might bring them closer together, maybe they could finally form that sisterly bond.

She glanced through her E-mails clicking on her most recent one from one Damian Ackerman, her pen pal, he had gotten her through a lot of her lonely moments in college, as stupid as it sounded, even though they had never met, they had become really good friends. She had told him that they were planning to come to Paris and in return he had given her a few of his shows that were coming up. She was excited about it, but she wasn’t sure how the Triple threat would react, Chris would not be okay with the fact that they had never met and Lily would more than likely give her a small lecture and then ask if he was cute. She laughed to herself at the thought before glancing to her sister. “Flight 421 From New York has just landed.” The announcement made Minnie stop and look up, Lily and Chris had both been able to get the same flight.

She’d be lying if she said she wasn’t a little nervous about seeing her old friends, she missed them so much. She was simply hoping that no secrets would be dug up from their past and that they could just have a good time. Minnie stood up and straightened out her short sundress and glanced to her sister “That’s them, sounds like they’ll be getting off any second.” She smiled tugging her purse up her shoulder a bit. “You have your pass port on you right?” she had asked this question several time like a worried mother, she knew her sister was more than likely becoming irritated with her. “Come on Ara.” She said offering her hand so they could go meet Lily and Chris at their gate.

Lily smiled at Chris as she felt the familiar clunk of the aeroplane touching down on the runway. As she felt the plane begin to lose speed on the runway, she quickly pulled a lipstick from her bag, using the now blank television screen as a mirror to apply some. The flight had certainly been an interesting one, even by Lily's standards. She'd met Chris at JFK airport, and it was as though they'd never been apart. They simply slipped back into their old habits that were so familiar from their time at high school. In a way, Christopher seemed different, like something about him had changed, though Lily couldn't put her finger on precisely what. Then again, she'd probably changed too. Although, not too much, she hoped.

They'd boarded the plane first, taking their seats in first class; nothing but the best for the Triple Threat. Besides, they were all filthy rich and could easily afford it. But the moment the plane had taken off, Lily had started to feel nauseas. It was a horrible, familiar feeling that often told her that she'd screwed up again. But Lily was desperate just to enjoy this holiday and push any problems to the back of her mind. She was here to have fun with her friends, and that was exactly what she was going to do. She'd decided to start the party early, ordering herself a bottle of champagne to celebrate the summer. She'd toasted the first glass with Chris, and then proceeded to finish the rest of the bottle herself. And as she drained the final glass, her nausea had completely vanished and the world had a pleasant fuzzy feeling round the edges.

It was at that point she'd decided to try and persuade Chris to join the Mile High Club with her. However, he hadn't been quite so keen. Disappointed, but not dissuaded, Lily had struck up a conversation with the businessman sat behind them. By this time, she'd moved onto the liquors, which only encouraged her flirtatious behaviour. Under the disapproving gaze of Chris, Lily and the man, whom she'd never actually discovered the name of, slipped off to the on-board bathroom. The thrill of breaking the rules, mixed with alcohol and sex, created a pretty good combination, Lily discovered. Five minutes later, she was back in her seat, proud and satisfied, but decidedly drunk. Chris had tucked her up to sleep off the alcohol, and she'd spent the rest of the flight unconscious. He'd gently shaken her awake as the seatbelt signs came on to indicate they were landing.

"D'you know when Minnie was meant to be landing?" she asked Chris. She had mostly sobered up by this point, but she could still feel the effects of the alcohol, slurring her speech ever so slightly.

She felt the plane come to a halt as someone with a saccharine sweet voice thanked them for flying with Delta Airlines over the intercom.

Christopher Black

Image


Travelling had been something he was never keen on, especially on a plane flying half way across the world. It had always been a slight phobia for him which derived from one too many disaster movie. He even had difficulty taking the coach to New York in order to meet his old friend Lily. Despite the plane not being invaded by snakes or crashing on a deserted island, the ride had been less that smooth for the casual man. It seemed his friend hadn’t changed her ways much and drank half the flight’s supply of liquor. Paired with the fact she easily got bored of speaking with him, mainly because he refused to do anything with her (plane or not), she had turned her attention to a business man who sat behind her. He must have been about thirty-five at least. It was something he highly disapproved of but all of his attempts to stop her went nowhere.

He would have even got up to grab her arm as she left to the bathroom with him, but he was too nervous to even take off his seat belt. The only thing which kept his mind occupied on the flight was his portable game system; a Nintendo DS to be precise. He’d only brought a few games with him, Mario, Pokemon, Zelda, and some random game a college friend got him last year for his birthday. It was to do with creating your own people and controlling how they lived; Sims 2 or something like that. It wasn’t his favourite so he hardly ever played it. Chris couldn’t come up with anything interesting for his characters to do.

When Lily came back, smelling decidedly of sex and alcohol rather than the perfume she wore, he had rolled his eyes and closed the gaming system for now. With shaky hands he fetched a blanket and covered her up, shushing her to sleep to which, thankfully, she finally gave into. The rest of the flight was spent with her sobering up with rest and Chris returning to his game, only to look up every few minutes and watch the man she had fucked in the toilet. Somehow he believed them to be a ‘thing’ now. Eventually Chris found his protective nature kicking in and he fought verbally with him. After that he bothered them no more and it was only half an hour did they touch down in France; the unfamiliar jolt of the plane hitting the runway made him squeak with fear. He played it off as coming from the engine.

“D'you know when Minnie was meant to be landing?” Lily had asked, her speech still indicating the toxins were in her system. This would make it harder to get her off of the plane in one piece but he could do it. Chris slipped the consol into his bag and folded up the blanket, standing up and packing that away too.

“I’m not sure, I think she said she’d already be here.” He offered a shrug of broad shoulders and slung the black satchel over his shoulder. A hand was offered to help her up and he didn’t release it until they were safely inside the terminal with their suitcases and bags.

From there they headed towards the exit where they would be meeting up with Minnie and her sister, which Chris wasn’t sure whether he was happy about her coming or not. He was hoping it would just be the three of them like old times, but then who was he to say she couldn’t come?

Lily watched Chris slip some game thing he was playing with into his bag. She never had understood his interest in playing with those things. Why bury yourself in fantasy, all alone, when there were so many interesting people to flirt with around you? Lily loved flying. Stuck, thousands of miles above the Earth with no way out until you landed, surrounded by so many interesting strangers, all free with nothing to do but flirt with her. He also slipped the blanket off her and folded it up before packing it away whilst offering her an answer to her question.

“I’m not sure, I think she said she’d already be here,” he told her, shrugging and pulling his bag over his shoulder.

Lily giggled excitedly. "I can't wait to see her," she told him, her voice breathy. "Do you think she missed us?" she asked, but didn't wait for an answer. "This is going to be the best summer ever," she giggled again. Clearly, she hadn't sobered up quite as much as she though she had. But it didn't bother her. She'd spent the majority of the past few years in an alcohol induced haze. She was quite used to it by now, and, for the most part, it hadn't caused her too many problems.

Chris offered her a hand to help her up, which she gratefully accepted. She stood up, stumbling slightly as the world spun. She quickly used Chris to regain her balance and looked up at him with a smile.

"I'm fine," she laughed, her eyes sparked as she rolled them and a smile danced on her lips. She knew exactly what he was thinking. He'd always disproved of her drinking in high school, and she doubted he had changed his ways much since then.

She picked up her small carry on and made her way down the aisle to leave the plane, hand clasped tightly round Chris'. She flashed a cheeky smile in the direction of the businessman as they passed him and he looked back at her appreciatively, before glancing at Chris and looking away. Evidently, he and Chris had had a few words while she'd been dead to the world. Apparently, she smiled, he hadn't changed that much.

They made their way through the terminal, Chris keeping a firm hold on her all the while. All around her, the air buzzed with different languages and accents. She picked out American, like hers, French, English, something Eastern European and Chinese. It was like a rush around her. She loved people, and she loved being abroad. It was all so new and fresh and exciting. She'd been to Paris before, but never with her friends. This was going to be a special vacation, she could just tell.

As she reached the exit, she spotted Minnie and her sister... Aria, was it? No, Ara, that was her name. They were stood up, waiting for them by the gate. As they got closer to them, Lily let go of Chris' hand, abandoning him with most of the bags, and ran over to her friend, wobbling slightly on her heels as she crossed the distance between them.

"Minnie!" she said excitedly, throwing her arms round the girl. She looked exactly as she had done last time Lily saw her. She really had missed her.

Ara watched as Lily and Chris made their way out of the terminal they were supposed to be arriving at, and was relieved that her and Minnie were no longer alone; it was a little awkward, she had to admit. But nothing could have been more awkward than what happened next: She watched as Lily ran over, wrapping her arms around one of her best friends. As much as Ara tried not to admit it, it did make her a little jealous that her sister had not only been the number one in her family for so long, but also that she had two best friends that would do anything for her. She was sure neither of them had been to keen on the idea of her attending, but here she was, standing there awkwardly regardless.

Ara wasn't a shy girl, but seeing Lily and Chris for the first time in so long definetly shyed her up a bit. She looked so different, older, more mature, but she wasn't quite so sure either of them had changed much. Looking between them briefly, she smiled a shy smile, then pulled her long curly hair to the side. "Hi Lily, Chris," she said softly, before taking a step back, sitting on the top of her suitcase again and looking around. She had plans on making this trip more interesting for sister, no doubt, but for now, she could tell how excited Minnie was to see her friends; she wouldn't ruin this moment for her.
