a character in “FATAL FASCINATIONS”, as played by Jynxii

Description

Image
Willow Kimberland




Image

Age| Eightteen
Gender| Female
Hair/eyes| As pictures
Role| Best Friend 3




Personality|
The trip to China was Willow’s idea. Help the orphans! Willow is that tree-hugger of the group, always carrying a camera around, and never using anything tested on animals. A vegetarian and animal activist, she’s the girl with a cause. Willow is always open for a good laugh, mostly spending time with her two best friends (when they had time for her). Willow’s passion is acting, and she spends all of her free time going to auditions, photo-shoots (where she is the photographer), or going on extensive camping trips by herself. Willow is the type of girl to go from quietly sitting in the background to bursting with sound, if a topic of her liking were to come up. Quiet by nature, she likes acting because it gives her a chance to be someone else. Willow will often go into ‘acting mode’ when she’s uncomfortable, taking on a character of herself to make herself feel more comfortable. Crowds have never been a problem for her, in fact she hates the small-town life. It would be safe to say that she’s probably the most excited about their trip to help the orphans of China. Although she loves children, animals and nature are her true passions.

Appearance|
Willow has never spent much time caring about how she looks. Some casual jeans, converses, a grey tanktop and a plaid over-shirt are enough for her. She’s known for sticking weird objects into her hair, such as chopsticks, pencils, pens, or paintbrushes. Of course, seeing Willow without her Nikon d3000 would be like seeing a zebra without his stripes. Preferring to be behind the camera, rather than in front of it, she is hardly ever without her treasure. She has a small tattoo on each of the insides of her wrists. On the left wrist is an empty songbird cage, and on the right is a small bird flying away with music notes floating by its mouth.

Willow grew up in a middle class family. She was the girl in middle school handing out flyers about baby seals in Canada.

She spends life working as an intern for one of the acting agencies, and doing small-scale photography in her free time. Her dream is to work for the discovery channel or animal planet. Always willing to lend a hand (if you’re an animal or a plant, that is) she has always enjoyed making a difference in the world.

“Flight 209 now boarding. Flight 209 now boarding.” The overhead speaker of the airport blared a muffled and scratchy intercom voice, that was nearly lost in the sea of sound throughout the massive room. Natasha Everem glanced up from her waiting seat by the window, her carryon held snuggly between her knees. With a pamphlet on the Chinese orphanage she was going to help held between her teeth, she struggled to shoulder her heavy backpack while juggling her purse. After securing the pack, she adjusted the purse onto her shoulder. “Now boarding zone 3.” Natasha stepped into line, and filed onto the plane while taking slow and deep breaths. She hated planes. They were like tin cans being tossed by a giant to her, able to fall from the sky at even given moment.

–If God wanted me to fly, he would have given me wings..- she thought wearily to herself as she cautiously made her way through the tight isles of the plane. –You’re doing this for the children you’re…- “doing this for the children, you’re doing this for the chil-“ She stopped herself, realizing she had begun to speak aloud and was drawing unwanted attention to herself. With an embarrassed smile she sank slowly into her seat, 23C. The seat on the isle, as far away from the window as possible.

As the plane began to take off, Natasha pressed her head to the back of the seat and braced herself on the seat in front of her. “Are you alright?” asked Willow, who was sitting beside her. Unable to open her mouth, for fear of vomiting, Naty just nodded solemnly. – Oh, God… please let me get off this plane alive… Oh please… Remember I’m doing this for orphans… For orphans! That has to count for something… doesn’t it?- Shaken from her thoughts by the sudden jerk of the plane vaulting into the air, Natasha grabbed the paper bag in front of her and proceeded to release her breakfast into it. This was going to be a long flight.

As the female drifted to sleep in her all black workout jogging suit, complete with matching black running shoes for comfort on the plane, she began to slump lower and lower in her seat. With her backpack clutched to her chest as a pillow, the young female rested behind the cascades of her blonde hair which fell over her face in a messy, lose ponytail. Her sapphire blue eyes were hidden behind her lids as she began to drift farther and farther asleep. The pills she took earlier were already kicking in, thank goodness!




Willow couldn't help but giggle at Natasha as her friend ignored every word she was saying to her. So caught up in her own phobia of a world, Willow just let Natasha do her thing. Offering to hold her purse, and being ignored, Willow tried to keep her laughter quiet knowing better than to poke fun at someone's real fear. Assuring Natasha that it would be fine to step onto the plane, that nothing was going to happen, and that she had done this a hundred times before, Willow nearly had to shove her friend down the isles of the plane. The chopsticks she had placed into her hair had been taken from her at security, so now her hair hang in loose brown cascades around her face and down her back. The heat on the plane due to all the bodies was nearly unbearable!

With a frustrated sigh, Willow sat quietly beside Natasha and held the paper bag full of vomit while she looked around hopelessly for a flight attendant. As one came by, Willow held out the bag and gave an apologetic smile. Freed from her puke duties, she sat back against her seat, 23B, the middle seat. From here she had a safe view out the window if she wanted it, and a clear view of the isle so she could people watch. Willow loved flying. She had been flying since she was very little, on trips to Disney World, the Bahamas, South America, and once before to Europe. Reaching up to twist open the tiny air vent, she purred in delight at the reward it offered. Her sea-green eyes browsed over the many passengers of the plane, spectating aloud to her friend beside her; " I bet she's a sugar baby... look at how young she is... way too pretty to be dating that old man.. Way too pretty...mmm.. And that one? Oh, well she's definitely a black widow... she must be on her fifth husband already! Of course, she doesn't love any of them... A gold-digger.. Look at that diamond! Yep. A gold digger."

Resisting the urge to pull her camera out of her carryon bag, Willow began to pick at her grey tanktop and nibble on her bottom lip. With a peek out the window at the clouds, she couldn't help but grin. "China.... Can you believe it?! This is going to be a trip to remember... just you wait... It's going to be the trip of a life time..."

Boarding the plane was no walk in the park. First trouble, was actually getting on the plane itself. The rush of people in the airport only made it harder for Alli to navigate her way. It wasn't easy at all. Especially with Nat close to hyperventilating for her fear of flying. "Haha, it'll be alright." Alli would say from time to time while laying a comforting hand on Nat's shoulder. Once on the plane, Alli was seated right behind Willow and Nat, who were sitting together.

Nat, however, was not looking good. Do I have to repeat that everything will be fine a hundred times? Oh well, it's Nat's first time flying, got to cut the girl some slack. But Nat was giving of a rather funny face. Oh shoot, I know that face. Alli looked away as she heard the nearby Nat puke. Then she heard Willow giggle lightly. This started to make Alli laugh heartily. Yes, this will be a great trip. I can finally ease the stress I have been carrying a while now.
Alli observed her surroundings. A few seats up it was hard not to notice a girl with bright blue hair. Wish I was crazy enough to try that color, but it looks good on her. "China.... Can you believe it?! This is going to be a trip to remember... just you wait... It's going to be the trip of a life time..." Willow said aloud, interrupting Alli's thoughts. She leaned in to answer.

"Of course it'll be a trip of a lifetime! I'm looking forward to the food, the sights, the food, the culture and hey...did I mention food?" Alli gave a playful wink. "The hardest part about this trip is getting through the flight, because it's going to be soooo boring! Come one, you guys are asking me to sit down for hours doing nothing, not my kinda thing." She let out a fake yawn. "This boredom better be worth it in the end." Alli tried to stretch from where she was sitting, but the airplane seats were doing what they do best...being an uncomfortable pain in the ass. Why can't they design better chairs? Jeez. Alli glanced over at a flight attendant, who was wheeling in champagne in a room ahead of them. Somebody's lucky in first class. She thought dryly.

In a few moments all the passengers will be seated and they could finally take off. You can do this Alli. She said while brushing her red hair with her hand. Boredom will not exceed you. She then noticed she had no one seated next to her. What a convenience, looks like I have no poor soul to annoy for the trip so far. Oh well. Alli took a rubber band out of her purse and gave a half smirk. Rubber bands, a pranksters best friend. Glad I brought a few for the trip. Maybe I won't die of boredom. She gave another smirk and twirled the rubber band in her hand.

Approximate time on plane: Eight hours. Location: The middle of the ocean.

Natasha was awoken by a violent rattling of the airplane. Beside her Willow looked completely calm as she stared out the window, as if this sort of thing were normal. Daring to peek around her, Naty noticed that it was pitch black outside, and that the clouds, the gusts the she could see of them, were soaring by them. With growing alarm she began to panic, jumping from her seat and yelling for help but no one seemed to notice. Everyone kept about their merry way, even as the plane soared straight for the water. With a scream she threw herself onto her chair and clung to it just as the plane was hitting the water and crushing the entire front half. Water rushed in, filling the cabin. As the water began to come up over her head, and with her last gasp of air—she woke up.

Gasping for air and in a sweat, she looked around the calm cabin of the plane. Breathing a little heavily, she attracted a flight attendant who worriedly bent down to ask if she was alright. "She's fine," chimed in Willow with a smile. "She's just one of those people... you know, the ones terrified of planes?" As Natasha was busy catching her breath and giving a small nod, the plane jerked suddenly. Eyes growing wide, Natasha looked to the attendant in alarm. “Everything’s alright, miss, it’s just a bit of turbulence. Completely normal,” the sweet flight attendant assured her. With a nervous glance back to Alli for some reassurance, Naty glanced to her watch. "My grandmother's watch..." Willow glanced over and looked at what had upset Naty now. "It's just stopped working, Willow... Alli, my watch stopped working!" With growing alarm, Naty shifted in her seat and passed her watch back to Alli, hoping she could fix it or something. Willow rolled her eyes and glanced to Alli, circling a finger by her temple to indicate that Naty was nuts. Giggling as Naty shoved her book bag onto Willow's lap, Willow tried her best to look upset as Natasha stood up from her seat in a rage. Jerking her hair bow out of the tips of her hair, since it was about to fall out anyway, Naty stormed her way to the tiny bathroom at the back of the plane. Sliding the lock into place, she let out a heavy sigh and looked at herself in the mirror. She looked rough. Slipping her hair bow onto her wrist for temporary safe keeping, Naty ran her fingers through the blonde mess in an attempt to make it look a little better.

Just then the ‘Fasten Seat Belt' sign flashed on and the captain came across the overhead. In as calm a voice he could, he slowly informed the passengers that they were going down. Assuring them that everything would be alright, he asked that everyone remain calm, return to their seats, and fasten their safety belts for a rough landing. As the cabin began to rock more violently Natasha was thrown into the wall of the bathroom, too stricken by what the captain had said to be able to move. Willow's eyes grew wide as she held her carryon between her legs, and Natasha's in her lap. "Ma'am! Ma'am! My friend-- she's in the bathroom!" Willow called to a rushing by flight attendant. The plane began to shake harder and the clouds cleared in the window to reveal the black depths of the sea, only visible by the moonlight. Within moments they would make impact, and the captain came over the intercom again, advising everyone to brace themselves, and reminding them of the exits, flotation devices, and safety rafts.

The flight attendant was banging on the door to the restroom, bringing Natasha back to her senses. She was just about to open the door when the plane made contact with the water, sending her slamming into the wall of the tiny restroom once more, only this time her head made contact with the wall, dazing her.




The impact was as Willow would have imagined a head on collision between two trains would sound. The sound was deafening, and the belt around her waist had done it's job at keeping her in place, but had definitely left a bruise. Looking up from her seat, all of first class was crunched up. There was no way anyone up there could have survived. With the only useable door now at the back of the plane, and over the wings, people rushed to escape the sinking plane. Three flight attendants had survived and were trying to direct the flow of traffic and assist people with their life vests. The first wave of people were out and in the water, instructed by the flight attendant to abandon their belongings as it would only weigh them down. They assured everyone that the emergency beacon would work, and that help would arrive soon. Willow shoved her small carry-on (her camera bag) into Natasha's already full bookbag and zipped it closed. "Alli, Natasha's in the bathroom!" Willow looked around desperately for a way to get to the bathroom, but the flow of traffic was working against her. "Why is she not coming out?" With increased worry, it was finally her turn to get into the isle to exit the plane. "I'm not leaving without her!" "Ma'am, please, we will get your friend off the plane, please, we have to evacuate everyone." The flight attendant looked like she meant business, and never one to create waves, Willow looked to Alli with a sick feeling in her stomach. Following the line of people that were jumping into the water, Willow fumbled with her seat cushion that was supposed to work as a life vest. Glancing to the floor her heart started to bound harder in her ears... jet fuel was beginning to soak the carpet of the plane, the smell overwhelming. - How am I going to put this on and keep the bags?- she thought worriedly. The flight attendant didn't seem to notice, or care, if Willow followed the instructions on the bag detail, so Willow jumped down the inflated escape route by the right wing. As she left the plane, darkness swallowed her and it was as if she were in some horrific scene from Titanic. The other two flight attendants had already inflated 4 rafts, and they were all full. The remaining people clang to the sides of the rafts in the water with their life vests on, weighing the rafts down to a dangerously low level in the water.

The weight of the bookbag was surprising, but Willow was determined to save her camera from the salty depths. Keeping the bag above her head, out of the water, she struggled to get the life vest flat on the water. Once it was, she sat the bag on top of the seat cushion that floated effectively on the water. "Alli!? Alli, where are you!?" she called into the darkness, scared that her voice would be lost among the calls of everyone else who were also searching for loved ones. She and everyone else were drifting further and further from the plane, and Willow started to panic. She haddn't seen Natasha get off the plane. "NATASHA! Natasha where are you!?" she cried, her stomach twisting as she looked around helplessly in the water.

Meanwhile, back on the plane

The flight attendant took one last look around the plane and was about to jump off and into the water when one of the live wires snapped loose and set the jet fuel ablaze. The poor woman didn't even have time to think. Within seconds, an explosion ruptured through the air, blasting the plane in two. Now in flames, the two halves of the plane began to sink.

Natasha screamed, having made it out just seconds before the explosion. The flight attendant had shoved her down the escape hatch on the opposite side of the plan than her friends. Sobbing, Natasha rubbed at her eyes. Everything seemed to be moving in slow motion. Her head was pounding, and the light from the fire was just a haze in her vision. Shaking her head in an attempt to clear her head, she looked around in panic. "Alli?! Willow?!" her voice was little more than a whisper, despite her efforts to yell. The shock was just too much. The salt and jet fuel taste in her mouth made her want to vomit, but the will to live made her hold it together. -Focus, Naty... Focus..- Taking a breath, she looked around, growing more and more exhausted by the minute. She had never been a very strong swimmer. Catching sight of the flight attendant, burnt and bleeding out, but holding something, Natasha swam closer to her. On her vest was a small light, and in her arms was a big orange bundle. -What is this... A life raft!- Feeling as if God had sent her an angel, she silently thanked the sweet attendant and pried the package from her arms. Swimming away from the sinking metal, Naty looked around, seeing only shapes in the water but hearing a muffled noise from people. The blast must have been louder than she thought. Her ears felt like she had just been to eight metal concerts standing in the front row. Yanking on the raft's string, she was overcome with joy as the orange life raft came to life. Using what was left of her strength, she pulled herself into the raft. She was alive. It was a miracle.




Willow watched in horror as the plane bubbled to the bottom of the ocean, but her heart jumped for joy as she saw in the distance another raft. Unable to find Alli in the sea (pun not intended) of people, Willow began to swim for the raft with all her might, pulling the seat with her and Natasha's belongings on it. -Oh, please let there be room for one more.. please.. please...- As she made it to the raft, she could have died of happiness. "Natasha!" she cried, tears of joy running down her face. Some others had already found the raft, and she gently tossed the bag inside, accepting any help offered to her as she climbed inside. The eight man raft looked a lot smaller now that she was in it, the small triangle opening keeping out some of the sea spray. "Alli?" Willow looked around as she huddled next to her friend, holding her. Was she here? Peering into the darkness, she tried to see if she could identify her friend. She couldn't swim very well, Willow should never have gotten off the plane without her! Feeling guilty, but lucky to be alive, Willow huddled closely to Natasha who was struggling to remain awake. "I.... I think I have a concussion.. " Natasha mumbled. "W-where's Alli?"

Just a few more hours and we'll be there... Alli refused to look out the window, for the sight of the ocean gave her the chills. She kept her attention on her next devious plan. Looking around, she saw more then half the people on the plane were asleep. Which one...She thought gleefully. That's when her eyes caught a spikey-haired asian guy dozing off, with some twinkie wrappers blanketing over his chest. Bingo. Using two fingers for leverage, she catapulted her rubber band directly unto the guy's face. At first he just dusted it off in his sleep, and continued snoring. I see, this one's a heavy sleeper. Alli got another rubberband from her purse and aimed it at the guy once again. Finally he jolted up in his sleep with a "Wha-what?!"
Alli did the best she could to choke back the laughter.

The sudden shock of Nat gasping for breath surprised her. "Hey are you alri-" But instead Alli was met with Natasha's watch. "Alli, my watch stopped working!" Gazing at the watch that was now in her hands, it turned out Nat was right. Alli picked at it for a bit, rewinding and fast forwarding the time, but it still froze. Seeing as it was an old watch, Alli presumed the gears just malfunctioned. Nothing to worry about. Willow's right about Nat being on the coo-coo side of things. But when Alli finally took her eyes off the watch, she noticed Nat wasn't seated down anymore. Where did she go?

Then Alli heard a strange beep. The sign to fasten the seat belts was on. "Wait, Where is Nat?" Willow shared Alli's equal frustration and seemed to think Nat was in the bathroom. Good, she'll check the bathrooms in the front, I'll check them in the back. But as she tried to do so a flight attendant tried to usher Alli back to her seat. "I need to find Natasha!" Alli urgently yelled and started plopping bathroom doors open. Every time she opened an empty bathroom door, Alli started to get more and more anxious.
The flight attendant raised her voice. "Miss, you need to sit down. It's for your safety."
She pushed the attendant out of her way with aggressiveness. "I NEED TO FIND NATASHA!"

A loud crash resounded as Alli and a few other unseated people flew across the air. The back of her head slammed against a wall and she laid still, the blackness of her mind enveloping her. She blacked out for a long time, unaware of the danger that surrounded her. When her conscious was finally regained, her worst fear came to life. Water was gushing in and not many people alive remained on the plane. Most already jumped out. Alli let out a terrified scream. No, no, no! This can't be happening!

Running to the front of the plane, Alli's legs dragged as the now knee-deep water was filling up. "Willow, Nat, where are you?" Nobody heard her cry. She was alone on the plane, or so she thought. Looking out the window...the monster of her fears was there. The ocean.... She knew staying on the plane was a death sentence. I have to jump out! Maybe there is something floating that I could grab. Alli opened the emergency door and leaped out, her body crashing against the water. The salty water instantly started to sting her eyes.

She swayed her arms uselessly, knowing she couldn't swim. And there wasn't anything to grab as Alli would have hoped. The water started to fill her lungs as she fought to keep her red-head above the water. I don't want to die. With the last bit of energy she had left, she screamed. "Help, somebody please! I can't swim! Hel-" Her call was cut-off as some more water filled her mouth. She kept thrashing her arms, but slowly her head started to sink below the surface. It was a long fight to keep her head above the water, and she was now almost completely out of energy.

((Cue Ronnie?))

Alli looked at Ronnie with appreciation in her eyes for saving her. She couldn't speak for she was still choking back water. I was so close to death...but here I am.After coughing a few times, she finally noticed both Nat and Willow where on the raft as well. Thank God, they are alive! Even after all she's been through, she was able to crack upon a small smile. "Can't get rid of me that easily." Her voice croaked as she let out another cough. Her bloodshot eyes looked around herself to see their were other teens who had survived as well. The same blue haired girl I saw before! She also noticed three other new guys were on the boat as well. Now, is a good time for a nap... And she fell unconscious, her tired body uncaring for the current event.

Many hours late she awoke to Willow slamming against her. "What happened?" She mumbled still half asleep. The sound of Willow screaming "Land!" made Alli jolt upright. "Where?!" but her eyes were soon met with the answer to her question. An island, with a huge beach! She jumped out of the boat and keeled, feeling the sand as to see if she was dreaming. "Whoa, this is the real deal..." Her attention was then caught by a hermit crab crawling in the sand. A Dardanus calidus, but this one is a little larger then normal. Plus its abdomen seems to be protected by a pointed shell, rather then a rounded one. The hermit crab fascinated her so much she nearly forgot of her current situation. Stupid Alli! This is not a petting zoo. My friends are probably worried on what to do now.

"It'll be alright, girls." She said confronting her best friends. "We may or may not be near civilization, but it shouldn't be too hard to find food and shelter around here. Water most importantly." Alli didn't have anything except her purse filled with rubber bands and entertainment items. Nothing of use in there. Alli sighed. "What do you say we start looking around the island? Maybe someone does live here, or maybe we can at least find a stream of fresh water. I'll see if I can get the other teens to join."

Ronnie was one of the first guys to walk out of the boat, and Alli took this moment to thank him. "About earlier, thank you for saving my life. I'm Alli." She held out a hand. "You are?" She wanted to at least know the name of the guy who saved her. Plus he probably knew some of the others and it'll be easier to tell them her idea.

When the water had burst in through the flaps of the raft he'd jerked awake suddenly due to being the other closest to it. But before he could do anything he saw the girl on the other side had already go up and fastened it shut. He smiled and muttered a thanks before nodding off again. The next he knew was that the girl had pulled open the flaps and was calling out something about land nearby. What really woke him up was the thumb of the raft beaching itself on said land.

He pulled himself up and through the flaps, jumping down onto the sand of the beach. "Well its not Everest... mores the pity." He repositioned his hat to sheild his eyes better from the sun, before walking a little further up the beach to a small outcrop of rocks with trees that had grown over them to form a shaded area with protection from the jungle behind. He put his rucksack down and took off his jacket, placing it next to it.

"Right, water and food." He rubbed his hands together and looked at the area around them.
