Job: Laura worked Part-Time in McDonalds, as well as Baby-Sitting, and busking in the Subway. She now works in the Cafe, and will sometimes perform there.

Personality: Laura is nice, when she tries to be, which is, if I'm honest, not often. As far as Laura is concerned, she has given up on the human race, and sees no point in trying to be friendly with those she neither knows nor likes. The only time you will see her being kind is when she is working, and even then uses sarcasm alot, and the smile plastered on her face is obviously a forced one.

She is definitely one of those girls that we all secretly hate -- the one that will be talking happily to you one minute, talking behindour back the next. This is partly because she is so sensitive, and her mood swings are unpredictable - the smallest thing can turn into a lare fight with her - and it is also because she tries to hard to fit in. If there is one thing Laura hates, it is being embarrassed, and if there is one thing that Laura lves, is being in the popular group. Evenif that means pretending to hate someone, when you don't. You do what it takes, right?

You do not want to go near this girl when she is in a bad-mood. She is even worse than normal, which you, if you have read up to this point, know is shit. AKA -- Stand back! Laura tends to snap at anyone who talks to her, and prepare for a few glares and eye rolls coming you way. She will sometimes - seldom, but still sometimes - use violence, depending on why she is mad. And for a small girl, she is surprisingly strong.

Laura is a very good actress, and has performed in numerous school plays and the like, which helps with hr lying skills, which we all know can come in handy. Laura can almost always make up a convincing lie in seconds, presumably from years of practise.

Bio: Laura Stella O'Connor was born on December 4th to Isabella O'Connor and Stanley Cox -- on a bus. Yes, Laura was brought into this world on a red bus that smelt of something between feet and dried piss. They were sitting on the top of the bus, and Laura used to chuckle about the how the people walking along the road would have possibly heard her mother's groans. She wondered what they thought was happening.

When her mother arrived home to the apartment, the first thing that her mother did was drop her. Typical, really. Her mother had only been eighteen years old at the time, and was stupidly wearing eight inch heels whilst carrying a new born baby. She fortunately landed on the sofa, though they still of course went back to the hospital to make sure she was fine, as we all know how delicate babies are. Basically, her mother was just preparing to sit down on the sofa with her new born child -- who actually still hadn't been named at this time, the pair had been hoping for a baby boy to call Corey -- when she slipped on her heel, landing on her butt on the couch while her daughter landed beside her with a thump. Isabella, still stunned, just sat there for a second as she blinked in confusion, while her boyfriend Stanley rushed over to Laura and picked the crying baby in an attempt to sooth her.

Stanley stayed for two months after Laura was born, and it seemed to go downhill from there. He left the family, whilst Isabella was still in High School, with no job. Not to mention the fact he took most of the money. It seemed the only thing he did leave Isabella was a broken heart.

When Isabella was twenty, she got a job as a waitress in a fancy restaurant. It wasn't that much, but it was enough money to get their own apartment. Laura was two at the time, and Isabella wanted a better home for her daughter than that dump.

At first, the house was a mess, with the rats, and broken windows. But after a little - or a lot - of home rearrangements, the house was livable. They have stayed their ever since.

Laura was a star growing up. She was pretty much the child everyone envied in Elementary school - the popular one that could talk to the boys, the pretty one that always had perfect hair, the smart one that always got top of the class and the school performer, which included singing and dancig. Whilst the other children wished they could be her, she wished she could be them. Her father hadn't been in contact for years - ever since Laura was a baby - and her mother, who had now gotten a job as an accountant, never had any time to help her. The real reason she was so talented was because she treid harder than the other kids, too busy trying to impress her Mum, to get any form of praise. At the age of seven, Laura was expected to do her own homework, and mind herself for hours on a time.

When Laura was thirteen, she got a new baby sister, Tanya, and her mother went on Maternity leave. Laura, at first, was delighted, as it was finally a chance to spend quality time with her mother. Unfortunately, she was too preoccupied with the new child, who they called Lucy. However, Lucy didn't last long. When her mother was out at work one day, Laura did something horrile while she was minding her sister. She killed her.

"What are you doing?" Lucy asked, as she stood up from where she was sitting in her bedroom, colouring. Her sister, Laura, was lying on the ground beside the stairs, drawing something. As soon as she heard Lucy coming, however, she looked up from her picture to glare at her four year old sister. For some reason, Laura had always acted very hostile towards Lucy, though she had no idea what she had done to deserve it.

"Drawing," Laura muttered, looking back down at the picture. Lucy glanced over her sister's shoulder to see the picture of a face, a very sad and grim looking one at that.The whole picture was in black and white, and even though Laura was obviously a pretty good artist, it made Lucy want to cry. It was filled with so much sorrow.

"Go away!" Laura moaned, when she sa her sister sneaking a peek at the drawing. She sat up onto her knees and pushed her little sister away from her. Not a hard push, but enight o make her stumble backwards. Lara watched in horror as the four year old toppled down the stiars, cracking her head at the bottom. Her eyes looked glassy,like marbles, and she had no life inher usually cheerful body.

Laura stood up frantically, her mouth shaped like a wide O. After deleting any evidence that she was at the top of the stairs, and a few more minutes for her to calm down, Laura rang the police, then her parents.

"Hello, this is Laura O'Connor. Fifth Avenue. Yes, my sister just fell down the stairs."


Her life hadn't been going very well before that. Laura's best friend, Chelsea, commited suicide the year before, making Laura cut herself. But now -- Laura's life turned upside down. Which is why she ended up here.

So begins...

Laura opened her eyes slowly, not wanting to move from her heavenly bed. She glanced at the clock, and immediately jumped up. She was late for work. Again.

She had a quick shower before getting dressed into some shorts with tights, a plain white t-shirt with a shirt and a beanie. After making herself presentable with make-up, Laura rushed out of the house. She didn't have time for breakfast, and besides, she could grab something on the cafe.

She arrived at the cafe, and took a deep breath before entering. Already people had arrived, not like she expected any less. Benny and Aiko were serving a gorgeous red headed boy, though why they both needed to serve him, she had no idea. Someone was playing music on a guitar, and Sandy was talking to him.

"-name is Hadden...." Laura heard Aiko say quietly, obviously referring to the red headed man. "Oh gosh.... I'm an idiot.... I didn't give him my name....." Laura grinned and rolled her eyes. Did that mean Aiko liked someone? But Aiko was so quiet!

Laura grabbed a bun from the display counter, diving into it as she walked into the back. This was her breakfast, after all, and she was starving. After checking herself in the mirror, Laura walked out again, giving a smile to Benny and Aiko as she did so.

She walked over to where the boy the two had referred to as Hadden sat, but walked past him, grabbing a chair from a nearby table. She placed it beside Hadden's table, and sat down.

"Two people in there are talking about you," Laura said, indicating with her thumb towards the kitchen. "Seems you made quite an impression." She raised an eyebrow at him, and gave him a glance up and down, pretending to be unimpressed. "You're Hayden, right?" she had purposely misprounounced his name, and as she waited for his answer, she drummed her black, painted nails on the table.

Hadden lifted his head up in suprise to see a girl pull up a chair by his table. He watched her drum her nails on it for a bit, seeing how she would react to him not answering immediatly. "It's Hadden," he finally replied placing his pen down on the napkin he was drawing on. "And to whom do I make the impression on? This is only my first time here...Don't tell me: you took one look at me and it was love at first sight, so you became jealous and came rushing over here to ask me out." Hadden smiled mischievously. Two can play at this game.

"It's Hadden," the boy said, after a pause. Laura raised her eyebrows slightly. "Hadden," she mumured, testing out the name. "And to whom do I make the impression on? This is only my first time here...Don't tell me: you took one look at me and it was love at first sight, so you became jealous and came rushing over here to ask me out," Hadden continued. Laura roleld her eyes. "Yeaah, riiight," she said sarcastically. "That's it." She leaned across the table, at the napkin Hadden had been doodling on. "What you drawing?" she asked. "Is it me?" She gave him a teasing smile.

Aiko heard her talking to him and finally decided it was time to forget about him. She quickly got up and patted Benny on the head and tried to smile at him as she quickly got out his receipt, brought it to him, and walked back to the kitchen without talking.
He wouldn't like you either way. Better to not start some dumb drama. She thought as she quickly got back to work.
Your too weird and silent... And get flustered easily... Just forget about him. She thought as she quickly washed her hands and got back to work.

"As a matter of fact-" Hadden stopped as he saw the raven haired girl walk towards his table. She quickly dropped off the reciept and hurried away back to work. His eyes followed her as she walked back to the kitchen in amusement. "As a matter of fact I think you are being to intrusive on my personal life for girl who works here," he continued.

Hadden put the money he owed on the table and scooted out of the booth. Hiding inside the bills was the napkin he had drawn on of the shy waitress and underneath the portrait was a phone number. Hadden made sure the red head wouldn't see it or else it would never reach its destination. "See ya later ginger." he said walking away.

He stopped by the guy who was playing the music and flipped a coin on the table. "Sorry man, that's all I have. Keep it up." Then turning towards the kitchen he cupped his hand by his mouth and called out, "Catch ya later Benny!" A small crash could be heard behind the closed door as a small voice could be heard crying, "Oh no!" Hadden's laughter echoed throughout the cafe as he pushed the door open and walked out into the sun filled day.

Aiko quickly flinched as she heard the crash and ran over to Benny to help him.
"A-are you okay Benny?" She asked as she helped him up and helped him pick everything up. Once done, she walked back out to collect the money and as soon as she picked up, she blushed slightly as she saw what was waiting for her. She saw a portrait of herself that Hadden drew of her on a napkin. Underneath it, his phone number. She quickly went to the cash register and put the money in that he paid and put the napkin in her pocket.
Maybe I should call him after work.... I never did give him my name... She thought as she walked back into the kitchen and washed her hands again before getting back to work. She couldn't believe that he actually left that for her. She thought she left a horrible impression when she met him. She also thought he'd go for Laura instead of herself but She guessed it didn't matter anymore. She wasn't going to be rude and ignore what he left for her.

"As a matter of fact-" Hadden stopped as soon as Aiko approached the table. She placed a receipt down, before leaving. ""As a matter of fact I think you are being to intrusive on my personal life for girl who works here," he continued, before placing his money on the table.

Just then, Laura heard Millie say something about flirting with the custmoers. She rolled her eyes, and turned back around to see Hadden standing up, preparing to leave. "Laura," she introduced herself before he left. As he turned around, she slipped a small piece of paper with a phone number on it into his back pocket. She had always been a skilled pick-pocket. It had possibly something to do with the fact that she was so small and agile. And most likely, the slip of paper would never be found. But Laura didn't care. She had a sort of aversion to giving up, even if it was just in an attempt to make a guy like her.

"See ya later ginger."
Laura smirked as Hadden walked away, rolling her eyes. Suddenly, Hadden let out a burst of laughter, though what he was laughing about, Laura had no idea. She hated not knowing stuff. What if it was something about her? Laura pretended to shrug it off, and walked back to the kitchen.
