Description

Name: Jessica 'Jessie' Barnes
Gender: Female

Sexuality: Mostly straight, always casual
Apartment no.: 204
Roomie: Genesis Carter

Hair color: Whatever she felt like this week - usually a brassy shade of red
Eye color: Green
Height: 5'3

Distinguishing features: What doesn't she have? Multiple tats, multiple piercings, scars, Jessie has them all. She also has a hoarse, husky voice from all the cigarettes, with an accent that started Chicago but is now kinda mixed from her moving around.

Personality:
Jessie grew up in a rough neighborhood with an even rougher childhood. She went off the rails for years with drink and drugs, in and out of prison for petty offences. She was only recently released from a serious stint at a correctional facility after nearly killing a cop with a glass bottle in a drunken fit of rage at being arrested, something she didn't ever actually intend and feels plenty of remorse for. Thankfully the wild child finally got the psychological assistance she needed and has gained a fair amount of patience, inner calm and a much more well-adjusted personality. If she likes you, you might even describe her as motherly as she's pretty non-judgemental, kind and a good ear to listen in the right circumstances. Unfortunately a lot of her bad habits still linger... to a casual observer, she is a slacker, a heavy drinker and smoker and probably the worst roomie, in terms of general disorder, you could ever hope (not) to be stuck with. She's also a lousy cook.

History: Jessie's childhood involved an abusive hooker mother, an abusive and violent gang member for a father and an awful lot of what social workers term a 'chaotic lifestyle'. Having to look after your mom in a drugged up mess before school and do your homework out of sight of your pop, who would lose it if he saw you at it, leaves you with definite issues. Thankfully social services got her out of there, but like so many other kids she ended up in appalling institution after appalling institution. She never graduated high school, much to her shame, being by that time the wild drunken girl out at parties every night. That said, she isn't stupid, far from it. It's just that her education is/was so piecemeal that she can surprise people with odd bits of knowledge here and there, but in most areas her ignorance is truly abysmal. Since then she's been trying to self-study, not least to try to catch up with everything that happened whilst she was inside. It's a bit hit-and-miss though.

After being in and out of prison for a string of minor offences, usually involving a drunken night out, she finally ended up getting put away. She still has a picture, hidden in her few possessions, of the scars she left on the face of the female cop she bottled. If there is anything she regrets and would like to put right, it's that. She wanted to make a fresh start after being released and came down to L.A. to get away from her old crowd. She's worked a string of dead-end jobs and casual work with an employment record as long as her arm. Mostly it's been waitressing, cleaning and bar work, although she did do a stint in amateur porn and there's little work she hasn't tried, albeit having been fired from it later. She's been fired a lot, mostly for 'attitude', and also lateness, turning up drunk and chewing out customers. Honestly she wouldn't be able to afford the rent here if it weren't for Madame Blanc, whom she met by complete accident whilst waiting tables and got talking to. Madam Blanc agreed to let her work in the hotel bar - bar work being something she's *very* experienced at - in return for filling in for a roomie slot. Which was pretty kind... or eccentric, of her.

Whilst Jessie still has issues with booze, she has promised herself she will never, ever drink on duty. She has a plan now too, which is to try to save up and go back to school. Whether she'll manage it remains to be seen...

Likes:
Hot guys, dancing, late nights, losing herself in the moment, strong liquor, body art, cheering people up


Dislikes:
Drugs (she has seen some pretty awful stuff related here), losing her temper, maths, criticisms of her intelligence, close-minded folks, people who judge those on the bottom rung

Skills:
  • Breaking & entering
  • Brawling
  • Holding her liquor
  • Being flirty
  • Being intimidating
  • Being understanding of human nature
  • Fun-loving

Flaws:
  • Criminal Record - she's no longer on supervised release, which is how she managed to change states, but she's still not popular with the law
  • No money - she's mostly broke
  • Heavy drinker/smoker (she's agreed to smoke out a window for the time being...)
  • Brash manner
  • Lazy - her weight goes up and down depending on what she's been eating/drinking and whether or not she's been burning calories partying
  • Fashion- whilst some woman know how to look classy, this is not her skill. She either looks punk or like a slob who couldn't be bothered, that's about it.
  • Poor education

So begins...

Since his time in the City of Angels, Los Angeles, he had been working local modeling gigs along with some acting gigs, too. There was a little time for some fun in his life but now that it was the weekend, Ashton knew that he needed to add a little fun to his life. Being a somewhat popular name around Los Angeles meant something to some people and it did to Ashton. He couldn't go down the street without someone recognizing him from a billboard that was posted up around the area or just his face and aura alone would attract guys and girls. Ashton was planning on throwing one of the biggest parties for the tenants of Evergreen Heights and whoever else decided to show their faces at The Loft Club tonight.

After a day on the phone and spending his day at the club, making sure everything was ready for the party, he went back to his apartment to get ready. The previous week, Ashton had placed invitations in everyone's mailbox that lived within the confides of the area so they had plenty of time to set their schedule and prepare themselves - Like buy another extravagant outfit or whatever. He showered, lathing his body with his new Axe body wash, Kilo then stepped out of the shower and paraded around the apartment for a bit in a towel before deciding on an outfit.

Since he was going to be sort of shirtless tonight, since the party was a black light party, he just decided to wear a pair of his Cargo shorts, Khaki in color and a pair of Polo Sperry's, which were light brown. Adorning his upper body was nothing more than a t-shirt that read M O D E L in big, bold lettering then reviewed himself over in the mirror before going back to the bathroom to brush his teeth and apply a small dose of cologne to his wrists and neck.

Another long look over in the mirror, Ashton was ready and he walked into roommate's room, without knocking. "Hey, I'm heading out to the party. Need a ride?" He'd ask him while pulling out his phone and sending out a few texts to people that he was close to.

To: Gennie
R u having a fashion emergency and need assistance? LOL. C u @ da party, yeah?


After sending out the messages and hearing roommate's reply, Ashton went out to the parking lot and waited inside of his 2016 Xterra, which was navy blue in color. He'd wait there in case someone indeed needed a ride and turned on the radio while he waited.

CARMEN WASHINGTON
hex code: #8AA37B

Carmen finished applying her lipstick and smiled at herself in the bathroom mirror. That was the last piece of her makeup, and now her look was complete. She'd been to countless parties in her life, but each one still got her excited like it was her first. She loved everything about clubs: the socialization, the drugs, the music, the dancing, the happy feeling. She bounced on her toes a little bit as the excitement settled in, and then she grabbed her phone off of her bedside table and put in her earbuds. She put The Black Album by Jay-Z on shuffle since it, and rap in general, always helped to boost her already high spirits. She padded out of her room on bare feet and into the front foyer. It took her a while to decide on a pair of heels, but she eventually picked a nude pair, her favorites, and slipped them on. They made her ass look great, and they were the first pair she'd ever owned. She pulled out her phone to check her dark eye makeup one last time before slipping it back into her purse.

Carmen left her apartment and almost closed the door behind her. On last thought, she poked her head back into the room and yelled "I'm going to Ashton's party!", hoping that her roommate heard. She closed the door and started to walk down the stairs. Just in case he didn't hear, she pulled her phone out of her purse and shot Tom a text on her way outside.

To: Tom
going to ashton's party!!! couldn't find you, you gonna come too?

Carmen was planning to walk to the bus station and take it to the club, but even after descending the stairs, her heels were beginning to rub her toes raw and it was chillier outside than she'd anticipated. Not that it was cold by any definition of the word, it never was in Los Angeles, but her dress wasn't exactly conservative. It was a low-cut, strapless red dress, long enough to cover her ass but tight enough not to leave anything to the imagination. There was enough room to dance comfortably in, but walking for a long time would just be uncomfortable. She began to dread the walk.

Carmen spotted Ashton in the parking lot and thought that hitching a ride with him would make a perfect plan B. They weren't friends, but they did wave at each other whenever they passed, and Ashton was something of a local celebrity. He would be impossible not to recognize. Carmen didn't have anything against him and was never one to not talk to someone in fear of an awkward situation. She sauntered over to his car and knocked on the window, which was rolled down a little bit.

"Nice music," she said, a little loudly so that she could be heard over the pumping bass. "Hey, this is a little weird, but could you drive me to the club? I totally want to go to your party, but my shoes are a fuckin' pain." She shrugged in a 'what-can-you-do' way and smiled a little bit at him, leaning against the car. She really hoped that he would say yes based on the truth, because a whole host of lies were bubbling up at her tongue, just waiting to be released. And she knew that they would surface if it meant that she didn't have to walk to the bus.
