Religion
Open minded: Her mother is Buddhist and her father wasn't much of anything. Molly just believes there something bigger than herself in this world. What that is she hasn't quite figured it out yet.

Personality
Molly is a very go with the flow type of person, anything rarely gets under her skin, except for maybe flunking a test. You have to do some really jeavy, mean stuff to make her not like you. She likes to joke and pick on her friends but not in a malicious way. Her teasing is playful, and she does her best to make everyone feel loved and accepted. She really doesn't like people who are hypocritical or derogatory towards others. She believes heavily in checking yourself before saying something hurtful about someone else. Her mother instilled in her the old saying, "If you don't have anything nice to say don't say it at all. Molly is very studious many of her friends say she goes overboard with her school work, but Molly wants to prove to her mother that she can achieve her goals.

Molly wasn't always like that, when her father died, she went spiraling into depression and started hanging out with the not so savory crowd at school. This self destruction went on for almost three years, when Molly was coming to the end of her senior year of high school she found out she was pregnant. Unfortunately at this time Molly was at the height of her addiction to alcohol. Her mother finally convinced her to stop so the baby hopefully didn't receive any irreparable damage. After having the baby she gave custody of her daughter to her mother and went into rehab. After several months there she came out clean and more like the old Molly. She still fights with those demons but she now feels like she has lot's of things to grateful for and sober for. Because she is a recovering alcoholic she rarely goes out with friends if she thinks there's going to be drinking involved.

Family Tree
Deirdre Curtis: Mother- living
Henry Curtis: Father- deceased
Leilah Curtis: Daughter- living


History
Her life was fairly normal in the beginning, her parents divorced when she was barely two years old, however Molly never felt neglected or hurt by it. Her parents were good about keeping what ever went wrong between them out of the relationship with their daughter. Both her though separate showed her decent amount of affection, she was loved but not spoiled. She lived with her mother but spent every other weekend with her father. He worked as a delivery man for a produce company, and her mother worked as a high school science teacher. Things continued like this through out Molly's childhood. She can remember going to the beach and collecting shells with her mother. Sitting on her father's lap as he built model planes, and listened to Elvis albums. For the most part she had a pretty good early childhood.

Problems started when Molly was about fifteen years old, her fatherhad always smoked. It was around this time that she noticed, he wasn't as spray and healthy looking as he had been when she was younger. It took some conjouling from her mother to make him go to the doctor. He was one of those types of men, who worked hard and didn't think nothing of going to work with a cough. He was fine he thought nothing a good dose of orange juice can't kill. But orange juice couldn't kill this, Molly's father was diagnosed with stage three lung cancer and it had started to spread all throughout his body. The doctors gave him less than a year, he was devastated. He had worked almost every day of his life, and now he could barely take care of himself. Out of the love that they had once shared, Molly's mother moved her father into her home. She and Molly worked hard to care for him. Ultimately he lived long enough to see Molly turn sixteen. It was just a couple of months after he passed away. Molly was hurt, sad, and angry all at the same time. She and her father had shared a close bond and now... he was gone. Molly didn't know what to do, she started acting out at school and at home, a once happy care free child became bitter and defiant. Molly's mother would worry all night waiting for Molly to come home. When she did she was drunk and would pass out on the couch in the living room. Molly's friends changed, the band kids were replaced by kids that did God knows what. Molly's mother feared if she tried to push Molly that she would leave. So she kept quiet and tried to help her daughter without causing a fight.

For almost four years this went on, till one day a couple months after a drunken party Molly realized something was off about herself... she was late. Since she had hit puberty, things were typically on a regular schedule. Rarely did she miss... and especially not for two months. Not wanting to alert her mom she went to a local woman's clinic, and found out what she had dreaded.. Molly was pregnant. She waited a compare weeks before telling her mother hoping maybe it was a fluke or maybe she would miscarry. However that never happened, when she told her needless to say she wasn't surprised. She immediately began beg Molly to quit drinking for the sake of the baby. Molly didn't want to and went on that she didn't want the baby anyway, why should she stop having fun? She went off in fit of anger a didn't talk to her mother for a week. Then guilt started to creep in and she felt bad, it wasn't the baby's fault it was there. She had been the one to get pregnant. Coming back to her mother was hard, and trying to stop drinking was even harder. However eventually she managed to stop, she got through the pregnancy fairly well. Leilah was born six weeks early and some symptoms of fetal alcohol syndrome. She spent a month in the NICU, when Leilah came home Molly was overwhelmed. Trying to make up her schooling so she could graduate and get into a decent college all on top of a newborn baby that to Molly never stopped crying. She began to feel the urge to numb the stress in alcohol. This time Molly didn't give in, as soon as she graduated high school she checked herself in to rehab and left her daughter's care to her mother, feeling Leilah would have a much more productive and happy life with her grandmother. Molly spent several months in rehab, when she came back she had a new found confidence and felt like she could finally make something of herself. She started college at BYU Hawaii, she spent three years there but she felt even more compelled to push herself harder. If she was ever going to be a mother to her daughter she had to do this. She applied for a scholarship to NYU never expecting to get it, but was excited when she did, she could finally be somewhere and specialize in neurobiology like she wanted. Molly hated leaving Hawaii behind, and her family, but this would only make her stronger.

So begins...

OOC: I went ahead and accepted everyone's work in progresses mainly because I really wanted to get this rp started. Though there are only 2 males in the rp. So if anyone would be kind enough to play as a male as well, it would be really appreciated. If not we can deal with just the two.

Tate found himself making his way into the Watergate Apartments for the very first time. He's lived in the city for a few months now but this was the first time he was ever able to live on his own. Just a couple weeks ago his brother finally kicked Tate out on his own because he felt that it was time he moved on with his life. True Tate had a valid reason as to not wanting to do this but it was something that needed to be done.

Tomorrow Tate would be starting his first day as a construction worker in order for him to start his new life. He just hoped that everything would go alright. The male found himself walking through the halls, looking for apartment number 159. Upon finding his apartment, he unlocked the door before beginning to bring boxes into his apartment from his vehicle just outside the main lobby.

This was definitely going to take a good few trips, he thought to himself as he began carrying the first boxes into the apartment building and to his room. Tate couldn't believe he told Michael he would be fine carrying the boxes into the apartment by himself. With the rate he was going, it was going to take at least an hour to get them all out of his vehicle and into his apartment.

Miranda sat in front of her computer screen in the cafeteria of the apartment complex working on her advice column as she ate breakfast. She couldn't believe how popular her column was in New York City when she has only been the author of it for two months now. Though she had a feeling that if anyone knew she was the author, people would be raising questions, especially with her erotic book that had most recently become a national sensation on the internet.

Every time she went out into town she would hear people talking about her book, Undressed. It was already bad enough that her apartment neighbors seemed to be interested in the book as well, but she just hoped that nobody would find out she is Author X or the columnist. Her life would utterly become destroyed.

Miranda's personal life is in both the book and her columns at times and if anyone close to her found out about a few of these things, they would definitely either disown her or be asking some serious questions.

AJ parked his car in the apartment building's parking lot. He had just returned from a simple corner store robbery that was reported over the police scanner. He rushed over to the store hoping that there was more than just a simple robbery, but the police arrived on scene only seconds after AJ got his camera equipment put together and started filming. It was a waste of his time. No real crimes happen during the day. He still has his job at the New York Times, but he hasn't written an article in awhile.

The pollution filled his lungs as AJ stepped out of his car holding his camera and slammed the door in slight anger. He made his way to the cafeteria inside to get a coffee. He put his camera down on an empty table and grabbed a cup and filled it with black coffee. AJ slowly returned to the table and fell down on the seat. He sipped his coffee as he reviewed the few seconds of robbery footage. His gaze wandered away from the LCD screen on his camera and landed on a woman working on a computer. He shook his head and focused back on the footage.

Just as Tate set down a box in the lobby, he noticed there was a girl standing there before him with a basket of laundry in her hands. The male listened as she spoke and just shrugged his shoulders with a slight laugh.

"I'm Tate, I'm in 159 and help would honestly be accepted if you're willing to help a complete stranger tote boxes up the numerous stairs. I tried to go for the elevator, but it seems it's out of business," he responded as he slid his hands into his back pockets as he always did when just standing there talking to someone. It was an old habit that seemed to come as if out of nowhere these past couple of years.

With a soft sigh he glanced back down at her laundry and spoke, "Though, if you would prefer to do your laundry that would be fine. I'm perfectly capable of doing this myself, it'll just take longer." Though at that moment he happened to glance at her, finding that she was a bit attractive and in a normal everyday kind of way. Not like many of the other women in New York who were having botox and other strange chemicals pumped into their bodies to make them look "prettier or have things bigger". Honestly, that never seemed to settle with him. The way most of those women look just scares him if he were being honest.

Miranda had been so sucked into her work that she hadn't even noticed one of her neighbors step into the cafeteria and just glance over at her until she sighed and leaned back in her chair, removing her fingers from the keyboard to just stare at the screen with a puzzled look upon her face.

Her boss sent her an email, telling her that she needed to write an article for one of the employees that had been fired that day and she only had six hours to get it done. This was in an area that she had no clue about and it just agitated her. How was she going to get this article done in six hours when she has to do research on it before even starting.

Finally Miranda stood to her feet and refilled her coffee cup as she spoke, "Having a good morning AJ?" she questioned as she began to put creamer and sugar into her coffee before stirring it a bit and taking a seat back at her computer and continued to just stare at the screen as she sipped from the hot liquid.

Tate just smiled softly at the female and began leading her up the stairs and through the halls. "So far I'm liking it here," he stated as they finally made it to his hall and began walking past the many doors before arriving to room 159 and stepped inside. "Place the box anywhere and also, thanks for the help," he stated as he set his box down and stood there waiting for Molly to set the boxes she had down somewhere before starting on his way back down to the lobby to get the other boxes. Hopefully it wasn't going to take too much longer. Especially since this was taking time out of Molly's day to do something that she shouldn't have to be doing in the first place, but he did appreciate the help.

"So, do you know of anyone I may have to worry about in this building?" he questioned, trying to fill the silence that was now engulfing them into its abyss.

Miranda immediately felt sorry for AJ. She knew that his job tended to be a bit rough and his money only comes with every job he gets. She sighed and shrugged her shoulders, "Eh, my boss told me I had to write an article for one of the employees she had just fired and it's about the most recent football game. I don't know anything about football, let alone who was even playing," she stated with a bit of confusion in her voice.

Miranda took a sip from her coffee once more before just deciding to close her laptop. She was getting tired of staring at the screen, just reminded her about this article she had to write which she knew nothing about. At that time she heard the talk show that was on the television in the cafeteria beginning to talk about Author X, the author of the book titled Undressed. Her ears perked up at the sound and began listening.

Her book was still the talk of everything and everyone has been talking about a sequel, which she honestly thought about writing but couldn't seem to think about anything to write for it. All she knew was that she was working on the sequel, it would come ou eventually and hopefully her identity would still be a secret by that time. If anyone she knew found out she was writing erotic novels, it would be very awkward.

Molly shrugged as she sat down the boxes "You're welcome it's no problem I know what it's like moving alone. As for steering clear I don't know really everyone I've met so far seems pretty cool." She looked around the mostly empty apartment. It seemed so much bigger than her apartment, but then again they all seem that way before you put stuff in it. She had got everything brew for her place since she had only kinky stuff before that. She figured since it was a new place she should have it look nice. Molly wiped her hand on the jeans she was wearing trying to ward off sweaty palms. "Sooo, if ya don't mind me asking what sort of thing do you do for work?"

The phone sounded out in the room echoing, all Josiah new is his head was pounding like a million jackhammers. He rolled over knowing it was just a text, probably from Chuck he thought. The manager of the band liked to give Josiah shit every time he went partying. Didn't he know that's what rock stars were supposed to do? He leaned away from the phone to find a rather cute girl naked in his bed. He smirked glad to find out that she was actually pretty instead of finding out she was a total hag and that the beer goggles had deceived him again. She was clinging to his arm, Josiah slowly moved it hoping to not wake her. She'd be leaving soon once she woke and realized what had happened. He pulled his naked form out of bed and headed for the kitchen. One quick flip of a switch and the coffee maker was on its way to making some very expensive high end coffee. Josiah scratched his head as he made his way to the bathroom for a much needed shower. In the mean time the girl woke, realized she had slept with a stranger, well other than knowing he was in the band, other than that he was a stranger. Either way she was so embarrassed that she scrambled to get her clothes on and be out the door before Josiah got out of the shower. When he came back to an empty bed he shrugged and went to go get a cup of coffee.

After several cups Josiah felt he had won the battle against his hangover, grabbing his phone he decided to head down to the cafeteria in the building and get a bit to eat. Passing by a couple who were carrying boxes up this stairs, he nodded acknowledging their presence but not much more. He opened the door and headed to get himself a blueberry muffin and a tall latte. Josie looked around till finally he was standing in front of the barista. He smiled and winked making her blush ever so slightly. She was quick about getting his order to him so he was pleased enough to stick a twenty in the tip jar, after taking his tray and sitting Josiah soon began scrolling through his phone mindlessly.

Jared looked at his boss and shrugged his shoulders. "Jared I love the work you did for the papers latest comic. Keep them comin'."

He smiled at his boss. "No problem sir thanks for the thumbs up." With that he began to take his stuff and went home. He made his way to the apartments and noticed a couple of people carrying boxes up the stairs.

With that he began to walk up behind them and smiled. "Hello, Did you need any help?"

"Thats it ladies work those muscles!" Her gym teacher was adorbs. She already was falling in love with her. She didn't know if anyone would ever be that lovely for her but man oh man. She was sure lusting over her.

With that she got out of the gym and went swimming. She began to dance to her favorite Latino Music and began to dance around and around. When she was finally finished with it she grabbed her towel, dried off and began to make her walk back to the apartments.

When she got there she had her book and purse with her and she sat at a table and began to read her book by this Lord X person or something. Anyway she loved it.

With that she put it away and went and bought some food and noticed a guy sit down. With that she looked at him. She walked up to him and cleared her throat. "Can I give you some company?"

Upon arriving back downstairs he answered Molly's question, "I'm a construction worker," he stated just as the two of them were accompanied by a male. He was shocked that so much help had been offered. Tate nodded her head, "Yeah, man. Thanks. I'm Tate Harper by the way," he stated as he held his hand out towards him.

After shaking his hand he sighed and began to lift up another couple boxes. Thankfully after this trip he was going to be finished and all that would be left is the unpacking, which really wasn't all that difficult. He lead his two helpers and neighbors up the stairs and into his apartment before setting the boxes down. He glanced to the two of them with a soft smile and spoke, "Again, thanks for the help. You can get back to your laundry now Molly, that is if it hadn't grew two legs and decided to run away," he stated with a slight chuckle.

Miranda removed her attention from the television when she heard AJ's voice and responded to him with a soft smile. "Really, thanks!" she stated, responding to his offer about the football article. Though after hearing his remarks about her book she had written she just let out a soft sigh, feeling very used to lying to people about this book. "Oh, yeah, it's pretty good. Have you?" she questioned. Though she already had a feeling that he hadn't read it, there weren't many guys who would. But she just wanted to keep the conversation going.

She grabbed her laptop and stood to her feet before sitting down at the table with him on the opposite side. She laid her laptop down on the table in front of her and sipped from her coffee once more. Miranda then proceeded to set her cup down on the table and glanced back up at the television as she listened to AJ.

As she sat there, she noticed Arias step into the cafeteria and made her presence known to AJ. Miranda just smiled and glanced up at the female from the chair she was sitting in and gave a slight wave. "Hi Arias, how have you been?" she questioned, hoping that AJ would accept her company as well.

Ever since meeting the girl, she thought that Arias was very beautiful but was unsure if she wanted to pursue a relationship with her or continue looking for her dream man. With Miranda being bisexual, there were so many possibilities for her that just made her seem a bit stressed about the ideas she got. So this is the cause of her choosing to stay single and just go with the flow. But she just couldn't seem to help but wonder.

But the fact she liked women, was another thing she chose to keep to herself. Yes, Miranda is a woman of secrets but for valid reason.
