a character in “Lost Causes”, as played by Syshil

Description

Name: Lilly Tennessy
Age: 20 years

Looks and personality:
Lilly has brown long hair and deep brown eyes. Her body is slim and delicate, however she has a strong will. She will never let her friends down and when she has an idea or something she will stick to it. She is a great singer, however she isn't sure about herself sometimes. She isn't lucky in love and has had many boyfriends for a short time, like a week or a month... Who is going to catch her heart forever?

History:
At home, Lilly is a silent girl. Her father is abusive and drunk most of the time. Her mother just stopped caring about it all. She's hiding this from her friends... for how much longer? As a job she works in a club for gentleman, as a dancer and stripper.... she hates it, but at least it pays...

So begins...

I turned around in my bed and lay on my side. As we had a small holiday i didn't have to get up early for school, luckily. I was kind of awake though. I blinked my eyes a few times and took my smartphone, checking the time... it was already pretty late.

*i have this idea, what if she isn't in the band yet? The guys are searching for a singer and she shows up or something? if you'd like?*

My eyes widened as i saw the date... This evening i had to go to meet some guys that were playing in a band. They were searching for a singer and i had signed up together with some others. I sang a lot... i thought i was pretty good... but i wasn't to sure about it anyway. What if i messed up?
Maybe i could just act like i had forgotten the appointment? Not show up? No... i couldn't do that... I meen, i had signed up, now i just had to go...
I got out of bed, touching my feet to the cold floor. I didn't have carpet on my floor which was just old and grey... not even wood.
I walked over to my small closet and got out some clothes, just a skinny jeans and a striped top.

I walked downstairs. Luckily my father was out working and my mother... well, she was around somewhere but didn't speak to me anyway. She wouldn't ever speak to me, after all, she had got me by "exident", which she kept reminding me whenever she did spoke.
I grabbed a small brioche and took a bite, putting my high boots on i had bought with some money i had earned doing some filthy job some time back. Nothing to good, but the boots were nice.
I checked my appearance in the mirror... make up: Check... hair done: check

I was ready and left the house, walking down the street.

Just one more street to go... i stopped. I could just not show up... not go there. I looked down at the pavement. No, everything i had done in my life hadn't worked out... If i stopped attempting this this would also be a failure. I would be a failure.

I had to do it.

I took a deep breath as i walked trough the last street, checking the adresses on the houses, the numbers... counting untill i found this house with an open garage, some guys standing in there, and a dog that was a great dane without mistake.

'ehmm... hi..' i managed, really shy to meet these new people for the first time. Normally i wasn't a shy person... but this is what insecurity did to me. What if i didn't look good? what if my singing wasn't good? what if... what if...

I smiled slightly and took a few steps forwards. 'I'm Lilly... Lilly Tennessy' i said softly as i looked at the guy who had spoken curiously. 'I called you guys last week... you needed a singer...' i said slowly and looked at them. 'or... don't you need one anymore?' i asked a little insecure....

I smiled slightly. Shit... i had somewhere hoped that the position was taken... now i had to sing! Damn... I looked at them and took a deep breath, looking at some guitars. 'Could i borrow one of those? I'm not so good at guitar... but i can play a few chords and well... it's easyer to sing on some music to be honest' i said carefully. I didn't have a guitar of my own: i didn't have the money to buy one. But i had practised guitar a long time ago with a friend...

I looked at Travis and smiled. 'that would honestly be way better... I suck at guitar... i can play yeah... but that's it really, never took time to practise' i grinned and cocked my head to the side. 'can you play Don't stop believing from Journey?' i asked, assuming he could play it and looking at the acoustic guitar... It wasn't a hard song after all to play.
I tried to shake my nerves off... what if they didn't like it?

I nodded and smiled as he started to play, however the guitar was out of tune just a little... it was fine for me anyway. I don't know, this song was one of my favourites, reminding me that life could get better...
I got very nervous when he got to the point i had to sing and took a deep breath... i could do this.

'Just a smalltown girl... living in a lonely world! She took the midnight train, going anywhere...' i sang softly and looked at the Travis boy fast before down at the floor again and then at the Luka boy... I wished they stopped staring... Maybe i was out of tune or something? i didn't know... or maybe it was good?

'Just a city boy... born and raised in south detroit! He took the midnight train going anywhere...'
In this part i had finally a little time to breath and took a deep one.

'A singer in a smokey room... a smell of wine and cheap parfume! For a smile I will share the night, it goes on and on and on and on'. I knew i had changed the text a little trough the years, making it apply to my own life.
'Strangers. Waiting. Up and down the boulevard! Shadows searching in the night... Streetlight. People. Living just to find emotion. Hiding.. somewhere in the Niiiiiiiight!'.

I knew it was enough like this.. i had shown enough and there was no reason to continue the song... i meen... i hoped it was good enough at least...

I smiled slightly as i looked at them. 'really?' i asked a little breathless and grinned. 'damn... well... thank you...' i managed.
I couldn't believe this was happening really... Did they.... just accept me in the band?

I smiled brightly now. 'wow, thanks' i said with a grin, not sure what to do. 'so, what kind of music do you guys play most of the time?' i asked curiously.

I nodded slowly and sat down onto one of the chairs. 'cool! i think i'll be able to write some stuff maybe...' i said slowly and smiled slightly. I still couldn't believe they actually had accepted me into this band!
