~ Mother's alcoholism

|Personality|
The first thing everybody needs to understand about Elizabeth Whitman is that she is incredibly and remarkably intelligent, she just fails to embrace it in the conventional way of gathering herself a set of remarkable grades at school but instead pulling off malicious schemes and covering up the tracks of her ill behaviour but no one can say, that the way her mind works isn't rather impressive. She's just got everything covered and together, she knows where she is going, what her plan is, how it will work, how people around her work- she sees straight through people and uses that in her favour when she needs to control a situation. That's the thing about Effy she's a bit of a control freak at times but only when she's trying to pull something together.

Effy's a force to reckon with and if you are not with her your against her and most people wouldn't want to be against her because she doesn't always listen to reason when it comes to those who have lost her trust. Effy isn't known for being affectionate or loving but she can be very sweet to the people she cares about most in her life though she'll rarely let them know she cares until it really counts.

|History|
Elizabeth Willa Louise Whitman was born to British parents in the lonely city of London to a family that had spent a century in the limelight with money burning holes in their pockets and their wildest dreams on a platter. Her great grandparents having always been massive contributors and recently owners of a Oil company- so as you can imagine, permanently in business so Effy grew up knowing where there was a will, there was a way and that she could have everything just as she pleased but despite that, she didn't come out too spoiled. Her father passed away from a hereditary disease when she was young making the company her brother (Jasper) the inheritor of the extravagant family business and everyone in their bloodline goes well supported by that company- even cousins and second cousins receive a fair share. The Whitman family are very protective in the sense that no one goes without and they protect each other, like family relative communism. This is probably what encouraged Effy to become so protective of people she cares for, she's always been guarded and protected by her brother and mother so naturally, she's become inclined to do the same.

After Effy's father passed, Effy's mother- Angela and Effy relocated to the country for a long while to try and move on and re-build their lives but Jasper decided to say in London with his grandparents in order to key and eye on the company and to be taught the tricks of the trade before he'd fully take over. Naturally, Effy very much so always had a certain longing to be reunited with her brother and impossibly her father but obviously such a thing never happened and she became quite distant to anyone but her Mother and maid. This distance and loneliness is what led to Effy's adolescent rebellion- drinking, smoking, tattoos- she went through it all in desperation to get some kind of recognition and attention but this only back fired when Effy was sent away to America to live amongst the fine elite women of Manhattan and serve as a socialite to try and redeem her name back home.

Effy's self-destruction resulted in her becoming a full blown drug distributor, she was secretly organising and funding the distribution of marijuana which she paid people to grow and sell, whilst at the same time she had a personal stock for her own use but her drug curiosity increased the frequency of usage and the intensity of the drugs she was using until she overdosed on heroin in one of her Grandfather's property and almost died during the trip to hospital- her mother likes to keep reminding Effy how close she came but it has little to no effect on her and it's not an incentive for her change because Effy does want to change until she knows who she is and who cares for her.

Whilst Effy's mother- Angela is relishing in the new start, Effy is less certain and feels as though she is experiencing a sort of indemnity crisis through the whole situation and can't quite work out who she is. The only thing she knows about herself is that she's a natural pianist and that there isn't anything that brings her as much relaxation as letting her fingers dance across the keyboard of any elegant piano she can find. She composes her own pieces as well an her gift is quite enchanting but rarely shared. Effy learnt to play piano from her Grandmother and was taught by one of the most competitive European pianists and composers from the age of thirteen and from time to time Effy still has lessons but has currently been more preoccupied relocating and redesigning herself.

Before leaving home, Effy had been a well recognised model who's works were just starting to get recognised in Europe and America, she was becoming a name to know but she hasn't modelled since she left England but she plants to reignite her career in America, she just needs to convince her Mother it's a good thing to do.

So begins...

ImageWelcome back to Manhattan everyone. I hope you all have enjoyed your summer breaks! Spotted Meilani at the airport with her mother exchanging conversation about medication. There is definitely something up with her. But what is it?

As for the rest of the elite, I haven't seen or heard from any of them yet. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what everyone else is up to.

And who am I?
That's one secret I'll never tell.
You know you love me.

Nicknames: Mei, Lani, Nikki
"Let's go Mei!" Miranda Valencia, her mother called from downstairs. "Coming!" she called back from her bedroom as she double checked herself in the mirror. She needed to look perfect for the first breakfast party after the summer. This is going to be the first time she sees everyone since she has been back. She just hoped that nobody would find out where she really was. That would definitely kill her reputation along with her entire family's.

Meilani straightened out her black mini skirt one last time before grabbing her purse and heading down the stairs to meet up with her mother. "What happened to the dress I gave you to wear?" her mother questioned. "I'm going to wear that tomorrow, promise," she responded as she headed for the door. "Okay, but be sure to wear it tomorrow. People need to see my new clothing line," he mother replied as she followed Mei out the door and up tot he breakfast party in the dining hall.

The very moment Mei made her entrance, everyone stared at her and not in a way she was used to. They knew she was hiding something. The brunette took a deep breath and continued her way into the room and started making her plate. After fixing her plate she took a seat at one of the tables and pulled her phone out of her purse and texted Danielle and Effy.

To: Danielle and Effy
Hey guys, where are you at. I want to see you.
xoxo M

The Whitman House - 7:27 AM – Manhattan – Outfit

β€» Mood: Positive - Excitable - Restless
β€» Listening To: Ten Tonne Skeleton - Royal Blood
β€» With: Her Maid (NPC)
β€» Dialogue Colour: #BD3C3C
Effy was sat cross legged on the floor of her bedroom, looking around at all the new furnishings of course with it having been suited to Effy's design, it was very gothic and edgy but it still didn't feel particularly...well, Effy if she could say so herself but she shrugged her shoulders and forgot about it when she heard her phone vibrate in her pocket. She picked it out and read the message. It was Mei and Effy smiled at the message- she hadn't really bothered speaking to anyone over the summer, she hadn't felt much up for it since she was so busy trying to cover up why an iconic British model like herself was suddenly abandoning her career, her family and her family company to move to the states and live with her socialite model- annoyingly, that arose a lot of suspicions and questions on Effy's part.

Questions, she couldn't afford to be truthful about.

She thought for a moment and then texted back.

To: Mei
I'm at home. Mum's just leaving. Why don't you and Danielle come over? We need to catch up or we can go out- talk to Danielle and let me know xoxo E

She also sent a text to Danielle immediately afterwards.

To: Danielle
Just talking to Mei- wandering if you two wanted to come over to catch up. Let me know xoxo E

She put her phone away and then finally decided to get off the floor and get dressed. Effy's wardrobe was particularly monochrome with the occasional splash of colour but it had always been Effy's infamous signature to be elegant in black and it was a tradition she'd passionately abide too for as long as she could get away with. She waved her hand through her designer wardrobe restlessly and then in frustration called out; "Celine! I need you," The call was answered quickly and thin blonde woman with large brown eyes scurried in with a bright and enthusiastic smile.

"What can I do for you Miss Elizabeth?"

"Effy." She reminded bluntly before continuing on with her request. "I just need some help getting ready, some style advise," The woman looked honoured at the suggestion and took to going through the wardrobe with Effy and picking things out together instantly, they eventually brought together a very 'Effy Whitman' outfit involving Effy's statement designer black distressed skinny jeans and a sleeveless top with a sweet heart neckline and a massive vest jacket to go over it and the two both looked quite pleased once Effy put it on. She thanked Celine in a genuine manner afterwards and as Celine was on her way out, asked to be notified once her Mother had left the house.

Alone again, Effy got up and finished the glass water on her desk and then left it on the side before she ventured downstairs in search of breakfast or something else to kill time by doing.

Danielle Martin

Location: The Martin Residence.
Mood: Nervous; Excited.
Interacting With: No one.
Danielle was up early this morning as she felt a bit nervous about heading into the school year, this upcoming year. She knew that didn't have to push herself as hard as she does but it was still a bit nerve wrecking. She sat in her bed with her back pressed against an assortment of pillows behind her as she sighed.

She looked over towards her phone as it chimed but it made a familiar chime. The chime she set for her friend, Mei. Of course, Danielle raised a brow while leaning over and grabbing her phone off of her night stand and reading the text. She hasn't seen Mei all summer and wasn't about to turn down the offer of seeing her now. She pressed her fingers against the keyboard, typing a reply.

To: Mei
From: Dani
Of course! Be there in a sec. β™₯


Danielle hit the send button and threw the covers off of herself as she was getting ready to go over and see Mei. She showered, brushed her teeth and applied a small amount of makeup to her face then placed on a black sweater, with the sleeves rolled up, a yellow dress that went well over the knee and a pair of black, flat shoes. She topped everything off with a yellow hat then reviewed herself over in the mirror.

Her phone chimed again as it was one set for Effy. She read her message then added them both to a group text, sending a reply.

To: Mei & Effy
From: Dani
So, where are we meeting up at? Do not play another joke on me. Text me the deets! xoxo -Dani


Danielle replied with a huff while walking out of her room and down the stairs, noticing her parents had already left for their jobs as the maids were heavy at work, cleaning and the chefs were just now coming to the house to prep things up for her parents luncheon today. She eyed everyone then walked out the front door, looking down at her phone then back up with another huff as she hoped that Mei and Effy were not playing another meet us there and we'll be right there sort of joke on her. She cranked up her vehicle then sat there for a minute, waiting to get a text back from Mei or Effy before driving out of her driveway.

"Hurry up Leo, you know I don't have time for this, I have to head to work, make sure you tell Franklin to drop you off at welcome party, no more walking, we have a driver for a reason, so use him." His oh so happy mother is yet bossy again. It was always like this whenever she was running late or trying to go into her 'impress everyone' mode. This was one thing Leo didn't really get, why did someone have to impress anyone? He never had trouble getting people to like him. And the oh so welcome party she's talking about, was something she always did after he'd leave for the summers and come back, just to show him off to the young ladies that are rich and single.

"I'm sure Franklin doesn't mind me walking, besides it's good for my Athletics." Leo patted his belly as he walked over to the kitchen pouring himself some mocha that the maid had made for them.

Sure he wasn't the richest out of all the Elites, but his family did have a great share of money on them. They weren't poor, but not filthy rich either. It was a decent living and it was comfortable.

Leo glanced at the kitchen stereo, once again his mother played the Pride & Prejudice station on Pandora. One would think she'd get tired of hearing the same tune every morning.

"Oh and Leo, remember, your father and I must talk to you soon, perhaps dinner a week after today. Right and we would be having a guest. Cheerio love." She gave him a serious look and waved as she went out the door faster than he could reject the request. A dinner with one of his parents was never good, let alone both. And then a...guest?

"You should prepare yourself for that dinner Young Master Warren. You're in for a very interesting treat. Ah and the welcome party, I'm sure it's going to be very welcoming indeed." Bruce their house Butler walked in holding a small kennel.

"I've learned to never be surprised with those two. Anyways, what is that?" Leo eyed the kennel questionably.

"Ah yes!" Bruce said as he had almost forgotten all about it. "It would seem I have found a batch of kittens placed in a box just down the road, I wanted to find them homes instead of leaving them out there." He said as he wiggled his finger inside the kennel's metal door.

"If it's not that many, you should just keep them, I'm sure they are better off with you." After all the guy was cat obsessed. Leo knew this for a long time. Bruce was the one who pretty much raised him ever since he could remember. Plus, he always did treat Leo very special, mainly because of his name.

Bruce smiled and nodded his head just as he glanced at the time. "Perhaps you should take that ride, you might be late if you walk." He said as he walked over and knelt down to fix Leo's lace to his shoe.

"Do I really have to go? I could just meet a girl at school or something. The parties are just a waste of time. That time could be used for better things." Leo itched the side of his neck and drank the rest of his mom's tea that she left on the counter.

Bruce gave him an odd look. "We have plenty of tea, if you wanted some-"

"Don't worry about it. Besides, it was still hot and not wasteful." He flipped out his phone made a quick text and left out the door. There was no way he was going to go, even if he did dress a for it. He needed to find a way out.

To : Gossip Girl
The Lion is back and needs a way out, any takers?

The Whitman House - 7:47 AM – Manhattan – Outfit

β€» Mood: Positive - Excitable - Restless
β€» Listening To: Ten Tonne Skeleton - Royal Blood
β€» With: Her Maid (NPC)
β€» Dialogue Colour: #BD3C3C
Effy sat down with her laptop scrolling through gossip girl whilst she was texting the girls but to her dismay there was nothing overly entertaining this time. Just something on a bunch of freshmen getting arrested- nothing good or relevant. Effy sighed and shut her laptop down as she saw her phone vibrate with a new message from Danielle- it was in a group chat though rather than being personal.

To: Danielle & Meilani
That joke was only funny the first time D, and you know I don't do the same thing twice. You guys come to mine, Celine is doing breakfast now, I can ask for her to do enough for guests- we need to catch up properly anyway! xoxo - E

It wasn't deniable that Effy could be slightly edgy and blunt with her jokes but 9/10 it wasn't meant in a hostile manner, actually their fraction is quite inaccurate- 9/10 if you weren't within her select circle friends, it was definitely intended to be offensive. After making her text message to the group, she then made her way downstairs to pester her maid into getting breakfast made for them all.

Walking downstairs, Effy was greeted by numerous people- all of whom worked for her Mother in one way or fashion. It was a joy for Effy being the only authority holding figure in the house hold and she planned to make the most of it. She waltzed around the house responding to people as she liked and then took to the kitchen, finding Celine and smiling at her. "We should expect guests for breakfast- I believe," She informed gently and the maid gleamed brightly at her.

"Fabulous- I'll cook my best!" She told Effy with a cheery laugh and the girl just smiled sarcastically at her and walked out again, wondering if there was anyone else she might bother contacting it- she figured that'd be up for discussion once the girls arrived, so she'd wait.
