a character in “Marriage of the Chosen Six”, as played by ArcticFox

Description

Name: Audrey Jamenson
Appearance:Image
Personality: She is caring and cautious, and not one to be aggressive. She is one to take a step back from the situation and just observe for a bit before making a decision and making her opinion known. She also doesn't put full weight into rumors or what people say, instead waiting to see for herself before drawing her own conclusions, but this doesn't mean that she disregards them, she takes them as a precaution. Because of her reserved and non-confrontational ways she can come off as being very submissive, which she kinda is, but when she makes a decision she sticks to it and will usually have a mile-long list of reasons to support her and sway others to her side. One of her main concerns are the safety and well-being of her people and she hates to see anyone hurt either emotionally or physically.
History: Growing up she was taught to listen to what others had to say and take into consideration what everyone else was feeling by her main tutor, Harvey Lancaster. She was taught that even though she might not come from the physically strongest race she did come from one of the more clever races and it was brains and the support of the people that that won political struggles. However, as time went by her concern turned from that of political gain and to that of genuine concern for others as the more she was exposed to their struggles the more her eyes were opened. Now she just does the best she can for her people.
Likes: Reading, listening to music, her people being happy, the night, fires
Dislikes: People being hurt, crying, early mornings, lightning storms
Opinion on arranged marriage: She doesn't mind so long as this brings some peace to the world and ensures her people's safety and well-being.

So begins...

Audrey woke up that morning feeling like her life had just ended before it had even had a chance to begin. Before she even opened her eyes she knew what day it was: it was the day when she would meet her prospective husband. Although she'd known that this day was coming for years and she was more than willing to marry someone she hardly knew for the sake of peace for her people... she couldn't help but feel like a caged animal. Resigned to her fate she pulled off the covers and dressed in the ensamble that she'd prepared the day before. She felt that the red really made her eyes stand out more, well black did that too, but it was too early in the day for black and she wasn't exactly going to a funeral. An hour and much fussing from her parents later she was off to the castle to meet up with the others. As she entered the hall she noticed that four of the others had already arrived and were currently getting acquainted with one another. Putting on a soft smile she walked to them with all the grace that she possessed and when she reached them gave them a curtsey before introducing herself, "It is nice to finally come face-to-face with all of you. I am Audrey Jamenson, representative of the humans, I look forward to getting acquainted with all of you."

As the last potential husband arrived she turned around to greet him, but was brought up short, not by his looks but by his clothes. To say the least she was more than a bit envious that he was allowed to dress as he wanted, while she was stuck wearing at the bery least nice skirts or dresses all the time. That didn't mean that she didn't like the clothes, only that she wished that she could wear more casual things as well. For now she would keep a close eye on this guy, who knows, maybe being with him will be fun? Audrey gave the others a small polite smile as she manuvered passed them as she sat herself at the table across from the late boy and gave him a genuine amused smile at his terrible posture and was laughing on the inside of what her tutors would think if they ever saw him as he was. "I am Audrey Jamenson, it is nice to meet you," she introduced herself, trying to reign in her humor but a hint of it slipped into her tone, she hoped that he wouldn't take it the wrong way.

Audrey looked down at what she was wearing and frowned slightly before looking back up at the vampire. "Not really, I wouldn't have made it out of the house in anything less, this was the most toned down that I could get from my parents. I wish I had something as casual to wear as you do," she sighed, not minding his tone. In fact the tone facinated her even more, she wasn't used to anyone being less than their very best around her, so this was actually very refreshing, it was almost as though she was a real person.

Audrey shrugged in indifference to the statement but her eyes shone with curiosity and fasination. "Clothes don't make the person anyway, so they don't really matter much. I have a more interesting question, who are you?" she questioned then before he could question her or possibly think that she was an idiot she rushed to explain, "I don't mean your name, but you as a person. Care to share anything about yourself other than that you are a vampire." She wondered if she came off as strange to him, she knew that most humans would've run screaming by now instead of having a casual conversation. In fact she fear wasn't even something that had crossed her mind so far even though she knew that he could easily kill her if he wanted to. Then again that was the same for most males of any species so you go right back to where you started, a casual conversation of two people getting to know one another.

Picking up the paper she glanced at it and nodded, showing only acceptance of her fate before setting it back down, face-down. "Well that answers that," she stated as she looked back up at her fiance, "not that this isn't fun, but I would really like to explore the castle, would you like to join me Emilo?" Right when she said his name she realized that it was the first time that she'd actually spoken it. She took a moment to think and decided that she liked how it felt saying it as she stood up, preparing to leave with or without him, she would just extend the invitation to the girls if he didn't want to.

Furrowing her brow slightly at the fascade she none the less took his hand and walked with him. She knew that even though they were forced to marry they were also expected to produce heirs from the union. Her people she already knew would reject any child that was not fully human and would even go so far as to try to murder them. In fact she'd seen it done herself on several occasions and each time she'd step in to protect the child, which made her reluctant guard get involved as well as they protected her. However, since she'd never met any other species than her own she had no idea how vampires would react to a child that had a human mother. Already she was nervous about her own kind mistreating her child but she didn't know how she'd be able to deal if the vampires were also the same way or if her fiance would accept them. "As you are probably aware, at some point during the marriage each of us will be expected to concieve and produce an heir. I was wondering, how does your kind feel about half-breeds?" Audrey softly asked the vampire next to her so softly that she could barely hear herself but she was sure that he heard her. Her head was down, looking at the ground as though she might find the answers there, hoping that for this question and her next that he would answer her frankly, putting the games on pause just for this moment.

((I know, but she's more of a big picture kind of person))

As he continued to speak she loosened her grip on his hand until she had dropped it altogether. All that she'd wanted to know was if her child would be safe and have a chance at happiness, instead she was presented with the origins of vampires. She just wanted to know what she was up against when it came to eventually raising a child. Forcing down her bitter disappointment Audrey schooled her features to be blank as she took a seat hoping that this explination might lead to the answer that she was searching for. With her hands folded in her lap to keep from shaking she looked up at her fiance waiting for his answer. "I just want to prepare myself for whatever challenges are ahead of me," she explained.

At hearing that her child would be accepted somewhere, her entire body began to shake as she struggled to contro herself. She was so focused on that fact that she almost missed his insinuation that she'd leave her child to fend for itself. When she did catch it her head immediatly snapped back up (she didn't know when she'd began to lower it) and glared as icily as she could at him. "I would never turn away from my own child, what kind of monster do you think I am. When I came to terms with this whole thing, I promised myself that I would always love and care for my child no matter who their father is or if I don't have any feelings for him. I just didn't want them to end up like the others that I saw. They were children of mixed heritage being beaten and harrassed by other people, when I saw them I couldn't help but wonder if my own child would be subjected to that as well someday. I did the best I could to help them, but it was never enough..." Audrey trailed off finally letting him in on her biggest fear. As she spoke her voice gradually went from icey to helpless as tears started to fall from her eyes and she buried her head in her hands as her body shook once more as she tried to stem off her crying. "But my child will be safe... it has a chance at happiness... it's safe..." she whispered to herself happiness and relief running thick even though her voice was so soft.

Aurey hated it whenever she cried, it make her feel so... vulnerable, and once she started she found that it was hard to stop. But right now, at this moment, she didn't really care, they were tears of relief and happiness. So when she felt something touch her she quickly looked at her arm only to find a hand and following it up to its owner she realized that it was Emil. As she felt the touch turn from uncertian and hesitating to warm and comforting she watched as his face changed from confusion and loss to concern and comfort as he spoke softly to her.

".. I don't think of you as a monster, after all, your kind thinks of quite the contrary." He left out the thought that his kind thought of theirs as food, rather than monsters. It didn't seem like it would help. "But I'm sure that your child'll be loved and cherished." Emil leaned back, and pulled his gaze away from her form, his touch having felt more warm than it should for an undead being, and it lingered on his fingers as he tried to disregard the feeling.

"..Just don't forget that it'll be mine too. I don't throw away my own. Be it part human or not. And if the world can't accept it, and I'm sure that you and I can."


She smiled gently up at him, appreciating the gesture and the words, realizing that he was very uncomfortable doing these things, but they had done their job and gotten her to stop crying. He'd even answered her second question without even realizing it, effectivly putting all of her fears to rest in a single swoop. When he looked back up at her Audrey blushed lightly at the situation but the smile wouldn't leave her face so she ducked her head slightly.

"I apologize for making you feel uneasy, I am just so happy. I have known that I would have to marry someone of a different race for a while and I refused to listen to what my tutors wanted to teach me on the subject of other races. I wanted to learn that sort of thing from someone actually from that race so that I wouldn't form any undue prejudices, but when I saw what happened to those children, I just became really scared. But now that my mind is at ease, I can go through with this... thank you Emilo," she explained with the same gentle smile on her lips.

Taking note of his embaressment she now knew that she should stay clear of anything too emotional if she didn't want to embaress the both of them, she was sure that he'd leave that sort of thing alone as well. He also seemed more than a little confused on what she'd said but since he hadn't asked anything of her she thought that it would just be best to leave it alone, who knows, perhaps it will fester in his mind and she can toy with giving him the answer later. That would be more than entertaining and she'd probably be able to drag it out for some time as well, frustrating him further.

Instead Audrey just wiped her face clean as he told her to call him, 'Emil' then went on to offer that he tell her about his kind, something that he seemed comfortable with. He fiddled a bit with his fingers. "Seeing as your kind likes to make much fiction and hilarity about us, I could clear up any scandalous rumors you may have heard about us." He made a face. "Like that book series from the 21st century, Twilight, I believe it was called?"

She thought about the title, sure that she'd heard of it somewhere before when she remembered that it had been a required book for her English studies. "It was a book about sparkely vampires and one of the 'vegetarian' vamires and a human fell in love and had a child. I had to read the series for my English studies, is any of it true? I thought that all of it was pure fiction, well except for the drinking blood part obviously and the ability to have children," Audrey answered thoughtfully as she once more looked at him with keen interest.

Audrey thought about what she was being told, she wondered if she'd been told any of this without any of the usual bias attitude that most people had. She quickly dismissed that thought knowing that it was impossible. When he asked if she had any questions for him she had to think carefulluy on that for a moment. "How often do you need to feed and would you ever have to feed on me?" she asked absently then brought her focus back to him and continued, "It isn't that I am afraid or disgusted by the thought of you feeding on me, I would just like to know if it is a possibility. I don't want for there to come a time when you need to and then I freak out because I think that you've sudden turned on me and are attacking me."

She wondered if she was ever going to really hear him laugh as she absobed the information that he was providing her with. For some reason it felt like he was with-holding something from her, but she felt that it would probably be best if she left it alone for now. When he reached the subject of them eventually being intimate a light blush graced her cheeks but it faded when he trailed off seeming to become confused.

"Okay..." she trailed off softly as she thought about what she wanted to say knwing that she more than likely just confused him on what she ment by that. After a few minutes of thinking to straighten out her thoughts and going over what they'd discussed so far she finally opted to speak further. "It's okay if you drink from me Emil, and if it ever goes too far then you could change me, right? You said earlier that there are vampires that used to be humans, so I'm sure that you know how that works. Besides, I doubt that it will ever come to that. Your race chose you for a reason, so I will put my faith in that reasoning and by extention you, Emil. That should you ever consume my blood that you will be able to do so in a manner that causes the least amount of harm," Audrey finished pointedly closing the subject from futher discussion for the time being.

Instead she abruptly stood up and streched her hands high above her as she turned to look at the door. "Well I think that, that is all I need to know about vampires for the moment. My body is getting stiff from all of this sitting and all of this serious talk, although rather fasinating, will never end if you continue to endulge me for much longer. I suggest that we go for a walk and speak of lighter matters. What do you think?" she asked turning to him with a soft smile wanting his honest opinion.

"All the more reason to hurry up and go outside then, I love being outside at night, it's so calming," she grinned as she took a hold of one of his hands in both of hers. Audrey tugged on it gently as she walked backwards to urge him to hurry up before letting go and turning around to walk as fast as she could towards the door almost bursting with excitment, trying not to run. Once ouside she took a deep breath of the cool night air, just enjoying being alive and having this small amount of freedom. "I don't know why but I feel like I can relax around you, maybe it's your style of clothing, or your relaxed attitude, or your dismissal of anything to do with anything proper, I don't know. All I know is that I like it. So was there anything that you wanted to ask me?" she inquired as she took off in a random direction.

With her tugging, gentle or not, he complied to follow after, sprinting lightly as he did so. As they neared the doors and stepped out in chilled air and dark night, he looked up to the sky. There were barely twinkling small dots, their light not able to be seen through the slight layer of smog he believed to be the reason, but wasn't disappointed by the moon's silver light falling upon the two, barely reaching towards a full moon. 'But there're still no stars to be seen correctly,' his shoulders slumped in dishearten spirit.

[i]"I don't know why but I feel like I can relax around you, maybe it's your style of clothing, or your relaxed attitude, or your dismissal of anything to do with anything proper, I don't know. All I know is that I like it. So was there anything that you wanted to ask me?" she inquired as she took off in a random direction.


Generally surprised by her sudden comment, and as his reaction was bordering stuck between embarrassment and arrogance, he just let a small smile come, as it hadn't been a comment he was used to hearing. 'Monster', 'royal brat', perhaps even along the lines of 'son-uva-bitch'. Her words weren't of anything that he had expected.

He had to sprint again as she took off in a larger distance, and Emil stared at her in blank expression - if you couldn't see the small smile that wasn't polite, but it wasn't discomfort or amusement, instead of a more content smile at ease - before speaking. "Several, actually. But it could be considered as sexual harassment." He joked, his eyes rolling upwards as if it was a thought bubble above, and paused to chuckle under his breath before continuing. "Instead, I'll just ask some more 'lighter matters'."

He looked at the white, almost perfect circle in the sky. The moon was beginning to irritate him. He much preferred other universely bodies and entities, such as planets or meteors, especially stars. Moons were just of something that was of werewolf related material. The sun was irritating too. Usually, at times of his sudden mood-swung frustration, he'd destroy something. But it'd probably frighten off his human fiance if he got carried away. Emil's mind had a sudden thought, gears turning, and a mischievous smile took place. He probably didn't need to destroy anything, but relieving stress was a required action to take.

She probably wouldn't mind too much. If so, well, tough break.

He caught up to her, pulled her arm to pull her closer to him, as he leveled his chin onto her shoulder lightly, feeling quite comfortable with the sudden close proximity between their bodies. She had a nice scent. The vampire ignored any sounds coming from her as he just murmured, "down we go." He pushed herself against him more as he leaned back and fell on grass, ignoring the fall's small pain as he just hugged her tightly, letting his body be her cushion.

He interrupted anything she had to say - be it sounds of surprise or protest, he didn't really catch, as he spoke up rather late, "If you wouldn't mind me doing so, but I feel at ease like this.." He chimed, before letting a silence overtake him as he gathered what words to use next. His irritation melted away as he just focused on her scent.

Emil asked casually, "Ah, questions to ask.. What're your hobbies, then?" Like it wasn't odd for a vampire to just suddenly take his human fiance of a forced marriage in a random embrace while he broke first mannerisms protocol, making sudden close contact out of the blue.

Well, Emil was a needy and touchy one - it came along in the package. He'd probably inquire about her human race kind, just to be polite. But that's be later, when he was bored, and he wasn't leaning onto her with a secure and strong grip, despite how gentle it seemed.

Audrey blushed brightly at the vulgar comment but once she was able to detect the tease in his tone the blush went down some but didn't completely go away since she knew that there was probably some merrit to the comment. The only thing that she was glad for was that she was ahead of him and not facing his way. When he grabbed her and pulled her in she let out a surprised 'huh?' and brought her hands up to defend herself. Then she felt arms around her, trapping her arms in place and when she looked up her blush came back in full force.

To hide her blush she ducked her head down, resting her forehead on his shoulder as she felt him lower his chin on her own shoulder. As they just stood there she was able to relax she heard a murmured, "down we go." from her fiance. "Wha-" was all she was able to get out before she felt that they were falling to the ground so she grabbed onto his shirt and held it tightly as she squeezed her eyes shut.

Audrey opened her eyes after they'd stopped falling and was about to get up when He chimed "If you wouldn't mind me doing so, but I feel at ease like this.." For a moment she contemplated continuing getting back up but decided against it and settled back down and waited for whatever else he wanted to say, she liked how his arms felt strong and gentle at the same time and they gave her a sense of security. So she was perfectly content to just lay on his chest and wait patiently in the peaceful silence that streched between them.

When he finally spoke her mind had wandered off to wonder what the others might be going and if they were getting along as well as they were. "Reading, writing, watching fires burn, and being outside when it is night, I was never allowed to do much else, that was as far as I was able to push the bounderies," she answered automatically like it was no big deal, and it really wasn't, that was just the way her life was, but that didn't mean that she wasn't also envious of others that got to do more than she did, that were free to do anything.

"That sounds great," she exclaimed excitedly as thoughts of all of the things that she'd ever wanted to try ran through her head. Setting off fireworks, camping, swimming, climbing mountians, playing some sort of sport any sport, climbing trees... than a mischevious grin spread across her face. "Well I was able to sneak away from everyone twice," she said proudly as she held up two fingers and wiggled them.

"The first time was when I was six, I snuck out of the house in some serving boy's clothing that I'd stollen from the clean laundry and snuck into the woods and climbed up a tree. It was the first time I'd ever done something like that so I was determined to reach the top and once I did I couldn't figure out how to get back down. I cryed, scared because no one knew where I was and I thought that I might die from being suck up there. Then suddenly someone was up there with me and they helped me climb back down, when I turned to thank them they were already gone and dawn was just breaking. I never did find out who it was that'd helped me and I was found staring at the spot where my savior should have been a few seconds later and when I told the adults about it they said that it was just my imagination. After that someone was always with me to make sure I didn't run off like that again," Audrey relayed her tale with a proud grin as she looked up at him.

"I tried to find out who it was, but I was never allowed to interact with anyone that wasn't human and everyone kept brushing me off saying that it was just my imagination. I could tell that they were lying though, they all seemed really scared whenever I would mention it, so eventually I just dropped it," she shrugged as her smile dropped, "It was ten years ago so most of the memory is kind of fuzzy now, but I do remember that it was a new moon so the moon wasn't there that night and he said something about one of the planets being unusually bright, I can't remember which one though. I wish that I could find him though so that I could finally thank him, he didn't have to do that and yet he did." She ended sounding both confused and disappointed as she layed her head back on Emil's chest and listened to his breathing.

She had to stiffle a laugh at his obvious disdain for werewolves then when he mentioned his brother her laughter died. Audrey didn't say anything at first about his brother, not wanting to offend him by paying condolences for the loss of someone she didn't even know. Without thinking she slowly lifted her hand to gently brush her fingers on his cheek, moving up to brush his hair out of his face, before bringing her hand back down to rest on his cheek. "It sounds like you were close to him, I would have liked to have met him if only because of that..." she trailed off as she then averted her eyes. "Besides I don't think it would've mattered which race saved me that night, they would have reacted the same no matter what. They didn't want me to come to any harm and develop a scar in case my fiance found it insulting to have a damaged bride and went on a rampage or some other race claiming me as their mate or some other nonsense. I mean come on, which race would claim a six year old girl, how ridiculous is that Emil?" she asked somewhat nervously, not onehundred percent sure about her assumptions as she started to retract her hand.

"It's cold." He murmured by way of explination as he held her hand in place casuing her to blush as he stared into her eyes, not letting her look away until he broke eye contact first. She watched curiously as a fond look overtook his features as he spoke about his brother and she knew that she was right about them being close or at the very least that he'd admired his brother a great deal. Then he seemed to realize something as he looked back at her and began to tease her about letting her fall before catching her to which she frowned. An impish grin then made its way to her face when he continued, mentioning that he might not have even caught her.

"Well then, where would you be now if I had fallen? I would've been killed from such a fall and even if I did somehow manage to survive I would be confined to a bed and have never come here. One of the other canidets would've had to take my place and been too scared to let you even touch her, more than likely screaming if you even tried," she shrugged as she paused let this information sink in, she'd met the others before so she knew what she was talking about when she made these inferences.

"Then in the case where you let me fall but catching me, I probably would've figured out eventually that you'd been there the whole time and yet still let me fall to what I thought was my death. I could've been so traumatized by the whole event that I would be even worse than those other girls, absorbing every word that my tutors had to say about other races and been dead set against you. The way I see it, I think you got off pretty lucky, it made me more open to wanting to know about other races from their own kind and giving them a chance no matter what everyone else says about them. What do you think Emil?" Audrey finished knowing that she'd made another solid case.

"Oh, then I guess you wouldn't have minded if I grew up to be a mindless, prejudice twit that screamed at the top of my lungs in fright whenever you tried to touch me?" she questioned casually and although her voice was light enough and nothing had changed about her expression, her body stiffened and by her wording you could tell that she was offended that he'd just brushed her off. "If that had not happened as it did I would have grown up to be just as superficial and shallow and ignorant and closed-minded as the others. As I grew older and began to understand more of what was going on around me that incident made me question how my race treated and feared others, as a result I refused to hear anything on the subject that wasn't in a fiction movie or book," Audrey ended in a calm manner as she stood up and began to walk back to the castle to look for something to eat. She was didn't want to leave the protective embrace and the night behind but her stomach would soon make its need to be fed known soon if she didn't find something to eat.

"I thought that it was about time that I had something to eat. Besides you don't seem to particularly mind if I am here or not," she answered back with the same calm not making a move either closer or farther from him. She wanted to know what he would do next, her feeling of being vexed was already disappating as she saw him acting so childishly. She was never one to hold a grudge anyway, but that didn't mean that she couldn't act like she could and who knows, he might already have the mindset that all women held grudges since most women really did.

There was a slight curve in her lips as she tried to hold back her laughter at his behavior, which she hoped he didn't notice since it would ruin how at ease with her he seemed. It was cute really, the way that he acted so much like a child and yet it was clear that he definatly wasn't one, for some reason this odd combination put her at ease with him. "I'll take that as a complimet, I wouldn't want to be like every other girl or human that you've ever met and a girl can't just give up everything to someone, no matter what the race. It's better for us to reveal ourselves slowly or else you boys would quickly lose all interest in us, then you'd go off chasing after some other girl. At least that's what my mother told me," Audrey stated. She then sighed disappointedly as they left the night behind and entered the castle once more. "You wouldn't happen to know where the dining hall is or at the very least the kitchen, would you Emil?" she asked looking at him curiously.

Holding down a blush and keeping her anger off of her face which had come back in full force she nodded as she followed him. "I never meant to imply any such thing, I apologize that my hearing is not as advanced as yours is and thank you for showing me the way," Audrey said, not looking at him but rather the floor. Everything had started out fine, calm, peaceful, even fun... it was everything that she hadn't even dared to hope would come out of this. Then as if he knew just how to get to her he seemed to switch modes. She didn't like it and to protect herself, she was inclined to shut herself off from him, staying objective and not letting her feelings get involved.

She was caught off guard when he suddenly apologized to her, then he surprised her further by taking on such a submissive manner. At these actions she knew that he hadn't meant for any of his comments to be so demeaning and a wary smile made its way to her face. "It's fine, it just means that we have a lot to learn about one another, you don't have to not speak for the rest of the evening. In fact I would prefer it if you never made such an offer again and promised me to never make this pose to me or anyone else again... it doesn't suit you..." she trailed off not sure what else to say and uncomfortable with his actions, even if she did appreciate the apology. Her nervousness showed as she curled a strand of hair behind her ear and began toying with it around her finger and her feet shuffled slightly as she waited for him to go back to a more confident stance.

At this she finally looked up at him to see that he was once more exuding confidence, but for a second she was able to see passed his finge and saw that he was still hurt. His hesitance also didn't escape her and she gave him an odd look wondering what had brought this on, but his return to what seemed to be semi-normalcy allowed her to relax enough to stop fidgeting.

"What for Emil?" she questioned wondering if she hadn't spoken clearly enough before, "Once you explained your side I realized that it was just a misunderstanding, so there is no need for me to forgive you, you did nothing wrong. Like I said it just means that we have a lot to learn about one another, and during that process I suppose there will be a lot of toe-stepping so to speak. Eventually we will get the hang of things and such occurances as this will become more rare, but I don't think that they'll ever totally disappear, people misunderstand one another all the time even people who've known each other for years."

Here she paused to let her words sink in as she watched him carefully for any changes as she took one of his hands in both of hers to show that she really was sincere in her words. "Besides, even if you had done something that you needed me to forgive you of, I would, no matter what it was so long as you were sincere. That doesn't mean that I'd automaticly forgive you, depending on what it is it might take some time, but Emil as long as you are sincere and you ask then I can begin trying. This marriage won't work any other way, like any other partnership," she finished not knowing what else she could say or do to make it clear to him that she wasn't holding some sort of grudge.
