Nancy Tickson

0 · 138 views · located in Earth

a character in “Night Shift”, as played by Worldsastage

Description

Name: Nancy Tickson
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Appearance: Nancy stands at about 5'2". Her body structure is a little stocky. Her hair is light brown that she always wears in a ponytail and her eyes are hazel. She always wears clothes a size too big to hide her weight, and always wears bright, cheerful colors, and very simplistic designs.
Personality: Nancy suffers from an inferiority complex, though you couldn't tell by looking at her. She always appears cheerful and agreeable. She enjoys hanging out with friends and cracking jokes and all sorts of things. This is all a mask. She's secretly terrified every moment of her life that the people around her don't like her, or will no longer like her if she says or does the wrong thing, though she'll never let on that she feels that way. She enjoys her friends and does not want to lose them, so she tries her best to please them and be the kind of person her friends want her to be, leading her to do things she wouldn't normally do. Despite the support and love of her family and friends, she still feels depressed at times, and even a couple times considered taking her own life, though she's never told anyone. They didn't lead to any actual attempts, but she did take the idea seriously for quite some time. She didn't consider suicide, though, because she felt her life was too painful to live on, but mostly because she didn't feel like her life was worth anything to the world, feeling that there was no need for someone like her to even exist. Her mood has recently shifted to the better since receiving a promotion at her job, and she is beginning to feel a lot better about herself, though there's no telling how long that would last.
Bio: She's the youngest daughter in a family of four, living with her mom, dad, and older brother. Her whole family is practically geniuses, her father being physicist, her mother being a doctor, and her brother graduating the top of his class and getting accepted into one of the most prestigious colleges in the country, while Nancy has been able to maintain an average ranging between high C's and low B's, with the occasional A. In high school, she was never very active, only participating in the activities that she did because her friends had urged her to. After recently graduating from high school, she elected not to go off to college like many of her peers, especially after being offered a management position at the diner she's been working at.
Role: Female 1's Friend
Likes: Dancing, singing, chocolate pudding
Dislikes: Insults, sad movies, tapioca
Strengths: Anticipating the needs of others, loyalty, patience
Weaknesses: Low self esteem, always hiding and denying her true feelings and thoughts, bad dancing
Fears: being disliked, being abandoned, spiders

So begins...

The sound of snapping twigs and the rustle of underbrush was what woke Felicia up. Grumbling to herself quietly, she rolled over. Immediately, she realized the texture of what she was lying upon was NOT her bed. She shot straight up, standing in the forest in her pajamas, a silk (and rather skimpy) dark green tank top with matching shorts. Which was currently covered forest debris.

Registering the fading sounds which woke up, Lici scanned her surroundings. Just before she gave up, she caught a glimpse of what might have been green hair before it disappeared. Green hair? It must have just been a trick of the forest... Except that the color was too light, and familiar. Jeez, this was going to bug her all day.

Sighing, she turned towards her house. These woods were long familiar to her, though she hadn't come here in years. She'd gone through a nature phase with her drawing a few years back. While searching for a subject worthy of her attention, she'd scoured these woods. It was easy for her to simply walk out of the forest and into the backyard of her house. As she closed the sliding glass door behind her, Lici paused, listening to the house. Satisfied that no one else was up and about, she headed up the stairs to her room.

She made quick work of changing into her normal clothes, a simple white tank top, jeans, and her favorite denim jacket, before getting ready to head out. As she reached for her doorknob, she remembered. She had no school today. Her college finals were scheduled on Wednesday and Thursday, so she had two free days. Unfortunately, one of those finals was turning in a huge research paper and being ready to present and discuss said paper... The paper which wasn't quite finished.

Grumbling to herself, Lici pulled out her laptop and set it up on her desk. Glancing at the clock on her bedside table, she decided that she'd work until the high school's last period, then head over. She hadn't visited in a while. Her final procrastination was to pull out her cell phone and text a couple of her friends.

To Shale:

Hey! I'm headin' to the high school today. Any of the group up to hangin' out? I'm borrowing the van, so we can all go do something. I'll be there, either way. Might be bringing Nancy, too. :)

With a second thought, she sent the same text to Mitchel. If one didn't see their phone, the other should, and they were always around each other. Hopefully they'd let the other know what was up.

One more text before gettin' down to business.

To Nancy:

I'm going to the high school to hang out with peoples. Wanna come? I can pick you up!

With no more excuses to delay her paper, Lici turned on her music and started working on the final draft of her assignment, grumbling to herself the whole time.

Nancy arrived early for work that morning, getting there even before the sun came up. Breakfast was very busy at Judy's Diner where she worked, and she wanted to make sure she got a fresh start to keep things from being as hectic as they possibly can be. She unlocked the doors, stocked the napkins, and fulfilled all her other duties while the cooks prepared the kitchen prepping for the first order.

When Nancy flipped the sign from 'Closed' to 'Open', customers began to fill the place like water through a dam. She took all their orders and brought them all out lickety split.

Some time through the day, her phone vibrated, indicating that she had recieved a text. She checked it during her break. It was from Lici. She read it, then sent a quick reply text 'I'M OFF AT 2.' She turned her phone off and went straight back to work.

Lici jerked herself upright, nearly tossing herself off of her chair in the process. Glancing over at her clock, she did a double take and squealed her displeasure. It was already ten past two.

"Nooooooo!" she wailed. Checking her paper and making sure it was saved before she closed down all her programs and shut down her computer. Checking herself over, she deemed her appearance worthy of the outside world... Ish. She dashed on light eyeliner with a practiced hand before grabbing her bag and hurtling out of her room. Descending the stairs, she barely remembered to turn and holler up the stairs.

"I'm borrowing the van. I'll be back later-ish!" Lici paused at the front door, hand hovering over the keys hanging off of the multicolored, kindergarten-looking key rack. As soon as she heard the garbled affirmative from somewhere upstairs, she continued her rush straight into the driver's seat of the dark blue, soccer-mom-mobile. It was better than a pedovan, though she'd like the extra space in the back. On second thought, no. With how much she hung around the high school, she didn't want to creep anyone out.

Starting the van, Lici whipped out her phone while waiting for the car to warm up.

To Nancy:

So sorry!!! I'm on my way now! ETA... 10-ish minutes? See ya then!

Lici then tucked her phone into the glove box. She used to check it while driving, but a near miss resulting from a bout of stupidity while texting rid her of that habit right quick. She'd learned to keep the buzzing thing as far from her as possible, but still accessible. It worked for her.

Smiling to herself, she eased the van out of her driveway and made her way to Judy's. As she arrived, she parked in the back near the employee's door to wait for Nancy.

Nancy finished up her shift by taking care of the last of the dishes from the lunch rush. As the next manager walked in, she made polite conversation as she hung up her apron. She saw the clock, and realized that she it had been past 2 for the past fifteen minutes. She wished everyone good luck for the rest of the day and headed out the back door outside. When she got out there, she was concerned when she didn't see Lici there waiting for her. She then realized that she never turned her phone back on since she turned it off earlier that day. She got out her phone and turned the power back on, noticing that there was one message received not too long ago. She barely had time to read the text all the way through before the van pulled up.

"About time!" She shouted as she climbed inside the van, playing as if she had been waiting the whole time.
