Image
Distinct Markings
Tattoo wise, Chris has his whole right arm done with various symbolic tattoos which form a sleeve. Also he has 'Before "You" I Serve Nothing' tattoo'd on his chest. No piercings and little scarring, other than what he received during fights in High School; these are simple scratches and grazes on his arms and legs, even a few on his chest and neck.

Appearance
Chris has always sported the long haired, almost "alternative" look. Though his outfits remain casual with loose fitting shirts, plain or with specific logos and band names, and quite often a dark denim jacket or something similar in a grey colour, yet made of a lighter material. He hardly ever chooses to wear a coat and would much rather be freezing to death and look good than have to bundle up. Image is something he cares a lot about, as with his appearance. Christopher isn't the tallest man around, being only just over six foot. He's become quite skinny over the years too and lost a lot of muscle which he had during high school, the most likely reason for that is he doesn't eat or exercise enough any more. His hair colour remains a dark brown which appears black in some lights, to which it has never been dyed before or straightened for that matter, so it's one big curly mess. Although Christopher tends to wear a hat of some sort which aids in flattening it down. His eyes are light green in colour, almost grey, and usually hidden under sunglasses.

Likes
Gaming, hanging out with mates, The Triple Threat, going to gigs, music, going to the pub, alcohol, men.

Dislikes
Aeroplanes, college, bitchy girls, travelling.

Secrets
~Perhaps his most deepest and darkest secret is the fact he slept with Minnie behind his girlfriend's back during high school. The two of them took each other's virginity and continued to have sex. This still remains unknown to Friend 2.
~Since beginning college, Chris has realised that he's gay. He hasn't told anyone as of yet.
~He dropped out of college after a few months. Or rather he was told to improve his attendance or leave completely. He chose to leave.

Personality
Chris has always been the popular type in high school and college was no different, however he did also make a few enemies since he enjoyed picking the odd fight or two. These weren't on a whim and had reasoning behind them, after all, these guys had been threatening his friends and broke their hearts. His protective and big brother nature was something he's carried with him from one group of friends to another, however he'd always put his two best friends on the Triple Threat before any of his college buddies. He retains friendship with girls a lot more than he does men, simply because a lot of the guys at his college are homophobic. Though he isn't open about his sexuality, his girlfriends have a suspicion, and he has been with a guy or two, but nothing serious or long term. Purely experimental.

He's the carefree type with a slight anger problem. Most things he can just laugh and shrug off, but when something gets to him, he won't be afraid to punch a few teeth out and kick them to the point their ribs would crack. It's a wonder why he hasn't been convicted for assault, but then hardly any of his most recent victims have suffered that badly and before he was too young. Still, he remains the type of guy who strolls through life not knowing what to do and just going with the flow. Chris prefers to be spontaneous rather than plan out what he's going to do. He's that friend who will see a film advertised whilst shopping with you and drag you straight to the cinema to see it. Even this trip to Paris was a last minute decision on his part, even if it had been planned months in advance. His motto is "I'm here to have fun, no matter the cost."

History
After leaving high school, Chris went on to study A-levels at college. He had no idea what he wanted to do with his life so took a variety of subjects which quickly bored him and he found himself skipping days and missing out on important lectures and assignments. All he wanted to do was enjoy life and he could only achieve that outside of college. He would go and see local bands perform, but would never travel too far as he hated riding in anything but a car or bus for more than an hour, and with no job to fund petrol money, he couldn't go too far. Still, he became friends with a few of the band members and was often let in for free or would ride with them on the tour bus to different places. In the end he quit college since he was threatened with being kicked out if he didn't attend. He still sees his friends from there though and often will meet up with them on weekends to go shopping or do something of the sort.

Regarding his experiences in sexuality, his first time was of course with Minnie in high school, and she was also quite a few times after that. He didn't have sex with his girlfriend (friend 2) though as he claimed to just not be ready. Who knows why the two of them went out in the first place because he didn't feel anything for her. Upon starting college, he decided to take a different approach to love and experimented with a few guys he met on tours with the bands, including one of the band members. It was then he found out his true sexuality, though would never openly admit or display it. Now he rides on an aeroplane over to France with his old best friends, who he's unsure whether or not to tell them about his sexuality and the fact he's no longer at college and has no idea what he wants to do with his life. It's safe to say he's a little nervous.


Theme Song
On Top Of The World || Imagine Dragons
If you love somebody
Better tell them while they're here 'cause
They just may run away from you

You'll never know what went well
Then again it just depends on
How long of time is left for you

I've had the highest mountains
I've had the deepest rivers
You can have it all but not til you prove it

Now take it in but don't look down

'Cause I'm on top of the world, 'ay
I'm on top of the world, 'ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I've been waiting to smile, 'ay
Been holding it in for a while, 'ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I'm on top of the world.

I've tried to cut these corners
Try to take the easy way out
I kept on falling short of something

I coulda gave up then but
Then again I couldn't have 'cause
I've traveled all this way for something

Now take it in but don't look down

'Cause I'm on top of the world, 'ay
I'm on top of the world, 'ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I've been waiting to smile, 'ay
Been holding it in for a while, 'ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I'm on top of the world.

'Cause I'm on top of the world, 'ay
I'm on top of the world, 'ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I've been waiting to smile, 'ay
Been holding it in for a while, 'ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child

And I know it's hard when you're falling down
And it's a long way up when you hit the ground
Get up now, get up, get up now.

Lily smiled at Chris as she felt the familiar clunk of the aeroplane touching down on the runway. As she felt the plane begin to lose speed on the runway, she quickly pulled a lipstick from her bag, using the now blank television screen as a mirror to apply some. The flight had certainly been an interesting one, even by Lily's standards. She'd met Chris at JFK airport, and it was as though they'd never been apart. They simply slipped back into their old habits that were so familiar from their time at high school. In a way, Christopher seemed different, like something about him had changed, though Lily couldn't put her finger on precisely what. Then again, she'd probably changed too. Although, not too much, she hoped.

They'd boarded the plane first, taking their seats in first class; nothing but the best for the Triple Threat. Besides, they were all filthy rich and could easily afford it. But the moment the plane had taken off, Lily had started to feel nauseas. It was a horrible, familiar feeling that often told her that she'd screwed up again. But Lily was desperate just to enjoy this holiday and push any problems to the back of her mind. She was here to have fun with her friends, and that was exactly what she was going to do. She'd decided to start the party early, ordering herself a bottle of champagne to celebrate the summer. She'd toasted the first glass with Chris, and then proceeded to finish the rest of the bottle herself. And as she drained the final glass, her nausea had completely vanished and the world had a pleasant fuzzy feeling round the edges.

It was at that point she'd decided to try and persuade Chris to join the Mile High Club with her. However, he hadn't been quite so keen. Disappointed, but not dissuaded, Lily had struck up a conversation with the businessman sat behind them. By this time, she'd moved onto the liquors, which only encouraged her flirtatious behaviour. Under the disapproving gaze of Chris, Lily and the man, whom she'd never actually discovered the name of, slipped off to the on-board bathroom. The thrill of breaking the rules, mixed with alcohol and sex, created a pretty good combination, Lily discovered. Five minutes later, she was back in her seat, proud and satisfied, but decidedly drunk. Chris had tucked her up to sleep off the alcohol, and she'd spent the rest of the flight unconscious. He'd gently shaken her awake as the seatbelt signs came on to indicate they were landing.

"D'you know when Minnie was meant to be landing?" she asked Chris. She had mostly sobered up by this point, but she could still feel the effects of the alcohol, slurring her speech ever so slightly.

She felt the plane come to a halt as someone with a saccharine sweet voice thanked them for flying with Delta Airlines over the intercom.

Minette raked her slender fingers through his long brown curls as a small sigh drifted from her lips. She was completely exhausted, but it was all worth it. She was in the city of love, so she couldn't complain. Her eyes scanned the airport, watching the plethora of people scurry to their destinations and kiss their loved ones. A faint smile found its way onto her face before she allowed her eyes to drift to her little sister, Ara. There was a tense silence between the two, to Minnie's dismay. She wasn't very pleased with the fact that she and Ara couldn't have that sisterly bond that she always yearned for, however, Minette still had hope, and who knew maybe this vacation could allow them to bond.

Anxiously, Minnie fiddled with the sleeve of her gray shirt. She glanced at her purse, thinking about the orange container that was filled to the brim with pills that would keep her as sane as humanly possible. She hated her anxiety and felt as though it hindered her appearance to most people. In her mind, appearances were key, and she refused to be looked down upon for something that she had no control over, so that is why she tried in vain to hide her weakness. To take her mind off of her flaw, she fished out her iPhone and checked the E-mails between her and her pen pal, Damien Ackerman. She was pleased that she would finally be meeting her confidant in the flesh for the first time, it was all so exciting. She tapped on the screen, sending him an update on their travels.

Hey Damien,

Finally made it to Paris! I can honestly say that I'm too excited for words. Can't wait to see you in person.


Hitting send, Minette lifted her head, spotting her best friends, Lily and Chris reaching the exit. A large smile replaced the melancholy frown on her face. "Hey!" She beamed, dropping her suitcases to practically tackle Lily. Her small arms wrapped around her friend's slim waist and her lips placed a small peck on both of Lily's cheeks, noting the scent of champagne on her breath before she gave Chris the same treatment, but was careful not to seem too affectionate. Their multiple encounters were not lost on her, and she prayed that no bad blood would brew between them. She still felt guilty...

"I'm so glad to see you guys again." Her gaze landed on her sister, not wanting her to feel too left out. "You remember my sister, Elsa, right?"

Minnie could feel the rhythmic thump of the bass shaking her bones as she moved deeper into the club. Her heart was pounding to the enticing tune. She had forgotten how addictive the night life could be, but now it was all coming back to her. She glanced behind he at Lily, Chris, and Elsa, a large smile on her pretty face. The familiar scent of sweat from the multiple of gyrating bodies was assaulting her nostrils, but she ignored it as she pushed her way to the bar. It was here that she planned on meeting Damien face to face, and she was both extremely excited and nervous. "White Russian," she ordered. As soon as her drink was in hand, she turned and eyed the club. It was much grander than the clubs that she was used to. It was a step up to say the least. Grinning at her companions, Minette offered a toast, raising her glass and beaming at the others. She made a mental note to check Elsa's drink before she even thought about consuming it. "A toast to new beginnings and the Triple Threats!" Clanging her glass against theirs, Minnie took a large sip of his drink. Her brown eyes flicked across her surroundings. She pinched at her dress absently, thinking about how her encounter with Damien would play out. She was sure that it would go well, but Minette was the type that worried too much for her own good. She took a deep breath, deciding that she'd attempt to look for him later.

"Let's dance," she told her friends then allowed her eyes to fall on Elsa. "No drinking, okay?" With that, she grabbed Lily's hand and Chris' arm. "You should come with us, Elsa," she suggested with a friendly grin.

Lily inhaled deeply, taking in the heady scent of alcohol, people and excitement. Her body throbbed with bass as it thudded through the room. People were all sides of her, constantly colliding with her and brushing past her. She could feel them against all her bare flesh, most of her body hardly covered by the scrap of material barely worth calling a dress. Lots of people would be scared by the atmosphere, but not Lily. This was where Lily felt at home. In college, she seemed to spend all her time partying, and each one tried to be bigger and better than the last. But nothing was too big for Lily. Nowhere made her uncomfortable, or made her think maybe she was taking it too far this time. This party was just like all the others. Except, she was here with her friends, which made this party better than any people threw at college, trying to impress her.

Lily watched Minnie shimmy through the club, dodging people and weaving through the crowds. Lily, Chris and Minnie’s little sister followed her towards the bar, which Lily was very much glad to see. As Minnie went to order for herself, Lily fell against the bar and waved flirtatiously in order to get the attention of a bartender.

“Something strong, and bitter,” Lily told him, not caring if he struggled to understand her English. “And did I say strong? Yeah, really strong,” she laughed to herself. Needless to say, this was not her first drink of the evening, let alone the day.

Thankfully, the bartender managed to get the gist of what she was trying to say and handed her a glass. Lily didn’t even hesitate to look at what was in it. She simply knocked back the liquid and put the glass back down.

“Another one, please,” she said, handing him money and collecting the drink to make a toast with Minnie. “To new beginnings and the Triple Threats!” Lily joined in, giggling.

"Let's dance," Lily heard Minnie say before quickly telling Elsa something. Then, her friend grabbed her arm and Lily pulled her towards the centre of the dance floor. But instead of paying Lily the attention she wanted, Minnie turned back towards her sister to say something. However, Lily had already been distracted enough to forget her slightly drunken annoyance towards Minnie for bringing her boring little sister with her and treating the kid like a five year old.

Lily had spotted a man stood at the edge, strangely attired as if he were out for a business dinner rather than frequenting a busy club at the heart of Paris’ nightlife. She glanced to his left and saw a sign for the V.I.P lounge. Now there was somewhere she certainly wanted to be. Older, wealthy men loved girls like her and she could definitely find herself a suitable man to spend the night with. She glanced back towards the man, wondering if his attire and position meant he was, in some way, to do with the V.I.P lounge and able to get her in. Without thought, Lily approached him and grabbed his tie, pulling him towards the crowds with her, and towards her friends, so she didn’t end up losing them completely.

When they had reached where she wanted to be, Lily pulled him towards her and began to dance. She looked the suit up and down clearly and then looked back up at him. “Come from a funeral?” she teased, laughing, not thinking for a minute he might not speak English.
