Willow's style differs drastically depending on her mood. On a good day, she loves to wear vibrant colours and fun styles of clothing. It wouldn't be completely strange to find her in a bright yellow tshirt and dungaree shorts on a day she's feeling particularly happy. However, on the flip side, Willow tends to stick to white, grey and black on her bad days. She's not as open to trying new things either, so black skinny jeans and a grey jumper would be the height of her fashion when she's not feeling so great. Not only does her style change with her mood, but Willow likes to change up her style with the season also - for example - pastels in spring, bright colours in summer, deep colours in fall and dark colours in winter.

Willow is beautiful, and she has no hard time admitting that. To some, she may come across as vain, but Willow just sees it as confidence, why shouldn't she love her face? It's the one her mama gave her. The contrast of her cute little freckles against her caramel puerto rican skin gives Willow a youthful look, and the fact that her skin has also graced her by staying mostly flawless also helps with that. That's not to say that Willow has no insecurities, in fact, her dark circles are a cause for much stress in the mornings as she attempts to cover them. Not makeups biggest fan, Willow tends to stick to concealer and a bit of mascara. Willow keeps her hair around shoulder length at it's longest, as she doesn't enjoy doing too much styling.

L I K E S
Willow is a dancer, so she's always loved any form of dance but especially salsa and cha-cha dancing. Both are a big part of her culture and heritage which is also something Willow loves to learn about. Her abuelos (grandparents) have always played a massive role in Willow's upbringing and she's not sure whether she'd be the person she is today without their love. Something that Willow enjoys doing just for the hell of it is flirting, she's definitely not interested in a relationship right now, but there's a kick she gets out of batting her eyelashes and biting her lip to win someone over. Similar to this, Willow loves kisses, in any form, whether they're platonic cheek kisses, passionate make outs or even sneaky pecks so as to not draw attention. Other likes of Willow's include comedies, a good book, parties and being surrounded by friends & loved ones.

D I S L I K E S
Naturally, Willow hates any kind of cruelty but especially animal cruelty - if she sees an animal being abused, Willow has no qualms with going up and telling off the owner. Never to one who always plays by the rules, Willow has had a tough time with authority in the past, which gets her into a lot of trouble; especially with her grandparents. Although her father tells her many stories, Willow hates the fact that she cannot remember her father and would give anything for just one afternoon with him. Being quite an outgoing girl, Willow has had to stand up for her friends in the past multiple times, and bullies really make her mad. Despite being loud herself, Willow hates arrogance and obnoxious people. Other dislikes of Willow's include electronic music, horror movies, meatheads and coffee.

P E R S O N A L I T Y
Confident | Hotheaded | Flirtatious | Stubborn

( i )
Willow seems to ooze confidence, at first sight, it's easy to think that she's never insecure and everyone always likes her. This isn't the case, although she is definitely a confident person, everyone has issues sometimes. In fact, a lot of the time, people don't like Willow because she is just so confident, which is misconstrued for arrogance. Not that Willow particularly minds, if someone doesn't like her, she doesn't get hung up on it but rather, just dislikes them right back. However, on the flip side, if Willow really like someone, she also has no problem with walking up to them and saying hello - something a lot of people may struggle with. Willow is to put it simply, just comfortable with who she is, besides, even if she does have an issue with herself she just thinks, I can't change who I am, so I either learn to love my flaws or be hung up on it forever.

( ii )
It may seem like a stereotype for Willow to be so short tempered, seeing that she is a Latin American woman, but she doesn't care. Nothing else about Willow feeds into such a stereotype, and besides, this was just the way she was raised. It's not because her family is Latin American, but rather because she just had such a hotheaded Abuela, Willow took on that trait. It's not like Willow is mean she can just lose her temper very quickly which often gets her into hot waters with other people who are confused as to why she is suddenly so mad at them. Now, if there's nothing else that Willow does well, she's amazing at holding grudges. There are still people from her childhood who pissed her off that are on Willow's shit list, so getting on her bad side is not a wise idea.

( iii )
Almost anyone would agree that Willow is quite beautiful, which means she's never had much trouble getting a date. However, relationships have never been something that she's been particularly interested. While she's still young, Willow wants to experience everything life has to offer, as much as she can. This means, she's not too into the idea of settling down, at least not right now. Flirting has always been something Willow enjoyed, even when she didn't know what it was. Subtle smiles and the grazing of wrists as they stay just centimetres apart, craving touch, give Willow a rush like no other; and quite frankly, the girls good at it. She knows all the little tricks to make a boy or girl of her choosing fall at her feet - not that she'd ever use that maliciously. Willow is definitely no user, anyone she's ever been with has known she's not interested in a relationship, and they are ok with that. In fact, a lot of guys find it hot. Being comfortable in her sexuality often leads to a lot of gossiping when it comes to other people knowing, but Willow doesn't tend to care. Let them talk, only she and the person she was with knows what really happened, and she likes to keep that secret.

( iv )
Much to do with her hotheadedness, Willow is stubborn as well. Being told what to do just doesn't sit right with Willow and if she wants something her way, she'll get it - or nothing will get done. It's my way or the highway when it comes to Willow. Again, this has caused a lot of trouble in her life, especially when it comes to authority figures like teachers. Willow has never, and most likely will never, be in any teachers good books. She likes to break rules and test boundaries. There is only one person Willow will change her ways with, and that's her Abuela.

Anna-Maria GarcΓ­a (nee. Rodriguez) | Mother | 35 | Unemployed
Being only a teenager herself (18) when she gave birth to Willow, Anna never felt as if she had time to properly experience the supposed 'best years of her life' as she was stuck with parenting a small child during her twenties. While her husband got to go to work and escape the boring housework and general baby clean up, Anna always felt as if she had been dealt the short straw and so, one day, she dumped Willow on her mother-in-law's doorstep and said screw it. Calling up her girlfriends, they hit the town for an innocent day of drinking and shopping. However what was meant to be a one time thing quickly turned into a daily thing and soon Willow was staying over at her Abuelos house just for the convenience as she was bound to end up there the next day anyway. Due to this, Willow and Anna have never formed a strong bond and Willow honestly views her Abuela as more of a mother than Anna ever was.

Gabriel GarcΓ­a | Father | 38 | Partner at GarcΓ­a & Wilson International LLP
Also being very young when Willow was born, Gabriel was perhaps more excited by the prospect of a baby than his girlfriend (soon to be wife) yet still just as overwhelmed. He finished his law degree as quickly as he could so that when the baby came, he would be able to support Anna and his daughter in all aspects of life. Joining Wilson International LLP almost immediately after graduating, it took Gabriel a long time but he eventually worked his way up the ladder until eventually he was partnered by his boss, Jonathan Wilson. Due to his determination to provide for his family, Gabriel was often away from home working long hours or on business trips so he also never really became close with Willow. It wasn't until she was old enough to realise the sacrifices her father had made for her that Willow truly began to appreciate him for the amazing man, and father, he is.

Valeria GarcΓ­a | Grandmother | 60 | Retired Seamstress
Valeria adores her granddaughter. Being a massive part of her upbringing, Willow knows she wouldn't be who she is without her Abuela there to guide her along the way.

Carlos GarcΓ­a | Grandfather | 67 | Retired Businessman
Willow's grandfather is very strict but also extremely loving toward his only granddaughter. He has never had an issue laying down the law and telling her off when she's been cheeky, but Willow's smile is sweet enough to melt him every time he sees it.

H I S T O R Y
Born to childhood sweethearts Anna-Maria Rodriguez and Gabriel GarcΓ­a when they were only 18 and 21, respectively, Willow was without a doubt an accident. However whether she was a happy one or not is debatable. If you asked Gabriel, he'd tell you that he was over the moon when Anna told him she was expecting, growing up in a very strong family environment he'd always dreamt about being a father one day and having his very own little family. Anna, on the other hand, felt conflicted. She was only 18 and had never pictured having her first child so young. While Gabriel had always been surrounded by love and an amazing support system, Anna's home life couldn't have been more different. With an absent father and a mother that could barely look after herself let alone Anna, she was terrified at the prospect of being a teenage mother.

Not long after they shared the news that Anna-Maria was expecting, Gabriel proposed and the pair were hurriedly married in a rush ceremony so that Willow would not be born out of wedlock. While neither Anna nor Gabriel cared whether Willow was born to married parents or not, Gabriel's mother and father were extremely traditional and told him that the only way they'd accept this new family he'd made for himself is if he and Anna were married.

After Willow's birth, Anna-Maria quickly learnt that all her fears about being a mother seemed to come true. She was not instinctively maternal and more than anything, found herself resenting her daughter for essentially 'ruining' her life. That's not to say she didn't try, and for a while it was ok. Gabriel's parents paid his way through law school and eventually he landed himself a half-way decent job at Wilson Internation LLP, while it was a family run business, Gabriel's father was friends with Jonathan Wilson back before his retirement, meaning that he could pull a few strings and got Gabriel an interview.

Anna-Maria slowly grew tired of being the perfect housewife, which is when she began leaving Willow with Gabriel's parents so that she could go out shopping and hangout with her friends. Which was fine, for a day, but when it turned into an everyday occurrence, Valeria had to confront her. Anna-Maria broke down after the initial confrontation, confessing that she wasn't ready to be a mother and didn't know how to handle it.

Being the kindhearted woman she always had been, Valeria offered to look after Willow for a few months while Anna-Maria sorted her life out and got her head around the fact that being a mother wasn't optional. Those few months stretched on, and eventually Gabriel practically lived back at home because when he would come home from work, Willow would be at his parents house so he chose to just stay there with her.

Becoming too accustomed to having her daughter be looked after by other people, Anna-Maria realised she didn't want to go back and for a while she disappeared. Gabriel and his parents would try to contact her but she would simply ignore their calls or avoid them at every cost, it got to the point where Willow (who was around 6 at this time) didn't even really recognise Anna as her mother and instead took to calling Valeria 'mom'.

Truthfully, this should've been when Gabriel filed for divorce but he just couldn't bring himself to do it. Not only did he not want to break up his family, but Gabriel still unconditionally and irrevocably loved Anna-Maria with all of his heart. He wasn't ready to let her go, even if she was barely still in his life he still had her as his wife and that meant more to him than anything.

By the time Willow turned 10, she had realised her mother was essentially just a visitor in her life. While they all technically still lived together, Gabriel and Anna's house had become just Anna's while Willow and Gabriel lived back with his parents. Anna-Maria would come and see Willow when she felt like it and even occasionally told her that she wished she could be the mother Willow deserved, but she just still wasn't in the right mindset. This led Willow to believe that maybe there was something wrong with her, which was why she couldn't get her mother to stay. Something that she still occasionally feels, even now. Was it her fault?

It wasn't until 2014 that Anna-Maria fully came back into Willow's life, and by that point, it was really much too late. Running back to Gabriel, Anna confessed that she wanted him to come home and to bring Willow with him. Overjoyed by this news, Gabriel never stopped to think about how this change would affect Willow, too excited by the thought of getting his wife back finally.

For a few years they were happily; finally back together as a proper family, Gabriel was the happiest he'd been in a long time. Willow, on the other hand, was confused. She barely even knew Anna-Maria now and honestly didn't really see her as a mother. She knew that Anna was biologically the woman who gave birth to her, but she was also the woman who abandoned her as a baby because she just 'couldn't handle it'. The friction between Anna and Willow became increasingly more obvious and after a while, Willow really just did not want to live there anymore. Gabriel tried so hard to make it work, but he couldn't force a relationship that had already been damaged so much. Anna would buy Willow little gifts and stuff in the hopes of winning over her daughter, but nothing to change how she'd treated her daughter in the past.

As the problems with Anna-Maria and Willow grew, as did problems between her and her husband. Gabriel soon realised that they were just different people now. He'd romanticised the idea of Anna so much when they were apart that he'd convinced himself she was the only woman out there for him, which just wasn't true. Anna still wanted to go out with her friends all the time and didn't really enjoy spending quality time with her family. She found it easier not to run away because Willow was old enough to look after herself, but she still couldn't quite fill the role of wife and mother.

In 2016 Gabriel finally called it quits. He gave Anna-Maria divorce papers over dinner, which she promptly threw right back in his face. Gabriel really couldn't figure out why though, it was obvious she didn't love him anymore so why did she insist on toying with his emotions like this? Did she actually care about him or did she just like that he was a safe, stable place to run back to when she got hurt out in the big wide world?

Eventually Gabriel called in a lawyer and got Anna-Maria to sign, by which point Willow was packing her bags ready to kiss this awful life she'd had with her mother goodbye and jet off to New York. Luckily, Gabriel's company had just recently partnered him and opened up new offices on the Upper East Side, meaning that he could easily move without the worry of losing his job.

In present day, Gabriel and Willow are finally able to relax. Willow really doesn't think about her mother all that much, and while Gabriel still deeply loves Anna-Maria, he knows that this is for the best. It wasn't healthy the situation they had going on back home and honestly, he felt as though a weight had been lifted off his shoulders - a weight he never knew was there, but recently realised that it was the fact that he'd been practically carrying Anna through most of her life with money and support and now he could actually live his life not concerned about her because she was doing her own thing and so was he. They were happy.

7:05 am. It is the morning of the first day back to school for both the Constance Billard girls and the St. Jude's boys. By now, many of them should be up and planning how they're going to take on the day. The extra eager students will be on their way to the school to help set up for the welcome back assembly which will take place at 8:30 am. However for one student, they don't care about rushing into school to help nor precisely planning the perfect back to school outfit - instead, they are sat behind a computer screen typing furiously. Finally happy, they quickly press post and throw on some clothes in the hopes they won't be late to school, not that anyone would notice anyway...

'Good morning Upper East Side, I hope you've all had a good rest because this year is gonna filled with more drama and chaos than any other. I'll make sure of that.

The first day back to school means those first impressions are going to be crucial. No matter how long you may have been at the school, you better bring your a game or risk being shot right down the social ladder. Let's see if Queen Bee Clara Chase can keep her crown or if one of her minions will finally be able to claw their way to the top. Speaking of, what's a Queen without her King? Oh wait, she doesn't have one. Seems like no one can stand Queen Bee-atch long enough, not even to get in her pants. Well, unless playboy Dante Lawson can finally find his way into the heart of the one girl at school he hasn't, hm, gotten friendly with.

And what about the minions, seems like pretty Primrose Reynolds has found herself a man in new money - Tristan Dupond - I guess we'll have to wait to find out if he'll ever love her as much as she loves herself. Oh, and how could I forget the resident 'bad bitch' Nurys Johnson, even she's managed to snag herself a desperate cool girl wannabe in Moriah Goldman. Seems like Clara really is the only one sleeping on her own these days, can you believe it? The Queen being outdone by her servants and enemies. How the mighty have fallen.

All this gossip and more has gotten me so excited for the start of this term, and the prospect of spilling all your dirty little secrets is exactly what keeps me going. The bitch is back.

You know you love me,
xoxo gossip girl.'

"Are kidding me? When I find her, I will end her." Clara threatened as she read the latest post from Gossip Girl. The anonymous blog had been a both a blessing and a curse for Constance's resident Queen Bee. It was great if she wanted information related to her, but once she started posting about Clara, it was destructive. Her latest post mocking her relationship status was just that. She sighed, stewing in her thoughts. So she may not have a boyfriend, but that didn't mean she didn't have options. Any boy at St. Jude's would kill for Clara, but Queen don't settle for boys. Speaking of boys, the dig at Dante Lawson was enough to quell her rage. Clara was proud to say she hadn't fallen for the playboy's charms, but the battle is getting more and more difficult.

"-ara? Clara? Are you listening to me?" Clara shook herself out of her thoughts at the sound of her favorite, and only, cousin's voice. Audrey has been one of Clara's few sources of joy since she moved in with her mother. The two girls were more like sisters than cousins.

"Sorry, ducky. You have my full attention." Clara said fondly.
"Can we go to the bakery before school? I want a parfait."
"Not today. We have to be at school early. As the Queens of Constance High School and Elementary, we must be on time. We can't leave our fellow students waiting." Plus, Clara needed to be there to overlook the welcome back assembly. Nothing at school would succeed without her seal of approval. The chauffer of the Chase family's limo was taking his time getting the girls to school. Clara would've urged him to hurry if Audrey didn't speak up.
"But I want a parfait! I don't care about being Queen."
"I'll make you a deal. We'll get parfaits after school and we'll go shop at the Lilly Pulitzer shop this weekend if you stop asking."

It was a sweet deal for the younger girl since they normally jet off to a fashion show on the weekends, plus they haven't been to Lilly in a while. Clara loved it since she needed a new outfit. Clara's cousin stewed over it in thought, but Clara knew she had her convinced.

"Deal."

~

After walking Audrey to her classroom, Audrey went straight for her side of the school. Students were already arriving and it wasn't long before Clara had two girls on either side of her. Madison Ulthbrooks and Tessa Andrews are Clara's most important followers. Madison's father is wealthy oil baron with close ties to the Rockefeller family. Her mother is trainer for Olympic swimmers, highly sought out all over the country. She's well connected and intelligent, but knows better than to try to take Clara's place at the top of the academic circle. Tessa comes from a family of secrets. Her father is head of the CIA while her mother handles publicity for high level politicians. Tessa is Clara's eyes and ears for rumors going around in Constance. Both girls have been Clara's 'friends' since middle school after Clara proved herself to be the top predator. While she does know Madison plans to overthrow her, she knows Tessa wouldn't dare join her cause. Clara saved what little reputation Tessa had left after her boyfriend publically dumped her, so she's loyal to Clara. Their friendship may not be true, but Clara reminds the girls the perks of being on her good side.

Before going to the gymnasium to check on the assembly, Clara pulled out her phone to text her friends, well more real friends than her two followers. She debated on texting Willow, but decided it was for the best. She could play off their 'friendship' better with her two followers with her.

To: Penelope
Please tell me you'll be here soon! I need my bestie

To: Primrose
Hey hey! Are you on your way?

To: Willow
The girls and I are helping with assembly. Want to join in?

Willow rolled over onto her side, giggling into her phone. She had just finished reading Gossip Girl's opening piece for the year and while she'd never admit it, her snarky comments about Clara amused Willow to no end. While she knew that whoever Gossip Girl was, they were guaranteed to just be jealous of people like Clara, Willow still found pleasure in the fact that perhaps this could take the girl down a few notches. Which was odd really, seeing as the two were supposedly friends. At least that's what everyone else thought.

Sighing at the thought of getting up and ready for the day, Willow wished to stay in bed, tucked under a mountain of duvets, for the rest of her days. But alas, just as she was about to decidedly blow off school, Willow's alarm screeches her out of her sleepy morning fog and into reality. Kicking off her covers, Willow rolls out of bed with an annoyed grunt and trudges her way down the stairs of her and her father's apartment, into the kitchen.

Gabriel was already up and about to leave as Willow waltzed in, half her hair sticking up from the peculiar sleeping positions she always manages to get herself into. "Buenos dias angel," Her father smiles, walking over to kiss Willow's forehead. "Ugh." Is her only response, but she still leans into her father, wrapping her arms around his waist.

"You need to hurry if you don't want to be late for school." Gabriel warns her, as Willow lets him go and moves on to toasting some bread. "I have meetings all day so I'll be working late tonight - try and get someone to come over after school," He continues "I don't like you being all alone in this big apartment." Gabriel always was the one to worry about Willow. It wasn't like her mother was going to, so Gabriel took on the responsibilities of both parents, which often overwhelmed him.

Biting into some toast, Willow turns to her father and begins speaking, mouth still full. "I'm fine papΓ‘, you know I'm not a baby anymore." Gabriel nods, but his face still holds that worried look he gets all too often when he thinks about Willow being on her own. Rolling her eyes, Willow resigns, "But fine, I'll ask Lily if she's free, ok?"

Immediately perking up, Gabriel smiles at Willow as he heads for the door, "Good idea, I like that girl she's a good influence," there's a pause, as if Gabriel is debating whether to say the next sentence or not, "Not like that Clara, I still don't understand why you hang out with her." Will he ever leave is all Willow can think as she replies, "Nice to know papΓ‘ - bye now!" And with that, he's finally gone.

Willow takes a deep breath, releasing the air slowly as she relaxes into the sweet silence of the autumn morning. Her eyes flick over to the balcony, large glass windows bring in the warm light of the rising sun, washing over her face with a yellow light. For such a beautiful morning, Willow knew the rest of the day would only be grim.

It takes the girl all of thirty minutes to ready herself for the day ahead. After a quick shower, she threw on a semi-decent outfit, hoping the skirt would fit Constance's uniform rules well enough. As she grabs her pre-packed backpack, Willow's phone vibrates with an incoming message. It's Clara. Nibbling on her bottom lip, Willow shoots back a response.

To: Clara
I'm on my way to school now, see you soon.


Running her fingers through her wavy hair, Willow then slicks on a bit of lipbalm before she heads for the door, going down in the elevator and out the front entrance, smiling sweetly at the doorman as she passes and finally out into the cool air. The breeze slaps Willow in the face and immediately a shiver runs down her spine. Hurriedly heading for her car, Willow is relieved to be out of the cold once she pulls the door shut behind her. Surely it would warm up as the days progressed, but autumn mornings were always chilly.

As she sat, attempting to warm up her cheeks by rubbing them with her palms, Willow decided to send that text to Lily. She'd never lie to her father, and if Willow had said she'd invite Lily round, then she would.

To: Lily
Heya, are you free after school? I was thinking we could grab some hot chocolates or whatever :-)


Sending off her second text of the day, Willow puts her car keys into the ignition and sets off for school, curious as to what kind of 'help' Clara and her followers were providing for today's welcome back assembly.

Using the student council's little helpers around, Clara almost wanted to beam with pride at how well the assembly was going to turn out. The President in charge was wrapped around Clara's finger so whatever she wanted from him, he gladly gave her. Her request to have the main speaker be the President of Yale college was easy enough to convince. Light hors d'oeuvres were being provided by Summers family. They have a child here, not that Clara knows who the child is. Everything was turning out perfect. Now, all she needs was her group. Clara wasn't going to bother Moriah about not showing up yet. Today was Moriah's last day with her whole family before they all jet off to take care of their business. Clara knew how rare it could be to get a whole family together. Moriah would show up soon, hopefully in time for the assembly and without her girlfriend. It seemed odd to Clara how two of her friends seemed to enjoy dating people she despised.

Her phone buzzed, and Clara was quick to check it. Primrose and Willow would be on their way. Now, she needed Dante, Penelope, and Sam. Penelope's absence was quickly solved when Clara felt a gentle hand on her shoulder.

"Please tell me you've remembered to breathe since you read the blast."
"My breathing has been perfect. All of it put into managing this assembly. I'm glad to see you got here!"

Clara gave the girl a quick side hug before telling one of the freshman to move the lemon squares next to the cookies. Didn't she memorize the food table chart? Useless. Madison was sent to drinks for all the girls and finally returned. It was Madison's turn to go get coffee, but Clara knew the girl was displeased. Truthfully, it wasn't even her turn. Clara overheard a rumor being spread about her and some hookup she had with some older guy. The rumor was clearly false, not backed by any evidence. Clara didn't have any proof on who spread it, but Madison has always had a thing for gossip. Therefore, she was on coffee duty. It was one of the more menial tasks Clara gave to her followers.

"I got the coffee, Clara. One vanilla latte for Penelope and a vanilla bean Frappuccino with raspberry syrup for you."
"You took longer than normal. I hope some older guy wasn't distracting you." While Madison was skilled at a poker face, the faint blush on her neck told Clara everything she needed to know. Madison was not to be trusted. "Thank you. Now, go get my books. It's your turn to carry them today." The red haired girl didn't reply before leaving. Clara smiled mischievously at Penelope before taking a drink of her coffee. "By the way, have you heard from Dante or Sam? I haven't seen them yet."

Willow had arrived at the school gates a little past the time she'd promised Clara. God, I hope she's not gonna be pissy, Willow thinks as she pulls into Constance and St Judes shared car park. Spying a couple pressed up against the trunk of the guys car, Willow rolled her eyes at their passionate embrace, jumping out of her car and slamming the door shut behind her. She'd never been a fan of PDA, well, unless she was drunk then Willow couldn't give a flying fuck who saw her half-naked streaking down the street. Ah, good memories.

Waltzing into school, her stride full of confidence, Willow notes that everyone seems to be here bright and early. Spotting Dante Lawson, Willow's eyes widened as she heads for the front of the hall where Clara stood, she makes sure to take the route that goes by where he sits, dropping a snide "Oh Dios mΓ­o, I never thought I'd see the day Dante Lawson arrived at school on time." not stopping to hear his response as she continues on - sending Nurys and Tristan each a small smile as she heads past them too.

Finally reaching where Clara stood with her usual posse, Willow's smile fades to being somewhat less genuine as she greets them all. "Hey guys, ugh the traffic was awful this morning." Willow begins, immediately getting in there with her excuse in hopes that Clara wouldn't then bring up her lateness. Stiffening a little when her eyes meet Sam's, Willow's obvious distaste for the guy writes itself all over her face for a millisecond before she wipes it off and it's replaced with that same smile.

Averting her gaze from the tall guy that stood right in front of her, Willow turned to look at Penelope, a much more friendly face. "Penny, you're looking cute today," Willow beams, Penelope was perhaps the one person within this 'popular' group that Willow could stand for more than fifteen minutes; she was a genuinely sweet girl that Willow found she actually had quite a lot in common with.

Then taking in her surroundings, Willow can't help but be a little impressed by Clara's work. "The hall looks great too." She concedes, not one to keep a compliment to herself simply because she's not the Queen Bee's biggest fan. During this entire greeting, Willow almost entirely ignores Primrose. Now Clara was bitchy and mean but Primrose was almost worse in Willow's eyes, she acted to sweet and cute but ever since Willow arrived at the school, she'd only ever been cold to her. Probably because Willow was so close with her boyfriend, she was worried that Willow might have feelings for him. Good thing she really only saw Tristan as a good friend.

Fiddling in her schoolbag, Willow emerges with her phone, deciding to send out a quick text while Clara and the girls put the finishing touches on the snack table. The assembly should be starting soon.

To: Vin
Where are u? Ur gonna get into deep shit if u miss assembly


Stuffing the phone back straight after the text is sent so that none of the stuffy teachers currently patrolling the hall could take it off her, Willow looks back at the group waiting to see if Clara was going to get her to do anything or if she could go sit down finally.

Clara smiled as she looked around the hall. The hall looked great, so much better than last year. How Clara manages to do better each year baffles even her at times. It would've been nice if a few more of group had helped, or just showed up. Some were blameless, others had excuses, but the ones who didn't bother to say anything annoyed her the most. Speaking of annoyance, Sam finally arrived. Lateness wasn't uncommon for the Queen's King, but the first day wasn't the time to be late.

"If I knew devil worship would get you here, I would've done it sooner... it would've been nice if you showed up."

His mischevious smile didn't work on her as much as he thought it did. Her look of disapproval faded into a sigh. 'Not much I can do about it now.' She'll be nice about it for their friendship. The resident Queen and King Bee have been friends for years, their mothers putting them together. Sam was her social equal in every way. Clara couldn't help thinking of the Gossip Girl post. Sam may not be hers in a romantic sense, but things could happen. Everyone thought they were both cute and scary together. The fact that they weren't kept stories going of how she's a terrible that nobody could stand to be near her. There is nothing wrong with waiting for someone special, but it would be nice cease the rumors.

Clara's eyes caught movement in the back of the hall. Dante Lawson, another one of Clara's more complicated relationships. The playboy looked good today, but he always dressed impressively. Clara always had a fondness for the playboy. He's charming, attractive, and shared her love of finer things. However, his reputation stopped Clara from acting on her fascination. She wasn't going to be another knotch in his bedpost. Still, he could've said hello instead of ignoring everyone.

More of her group began to arrive: Prim first then Willow. Primrose had to see her boyfriend. Clara wanted to gag thinking about it. Her friends had the habit of dating people she didn't like, but Clara wasn't in the position to meddle. Her friend was happy and she'd be cordial, somewhat. Next was Willow, the frenemy. She's fresh blood and still open for molding. Clara smiled.

"We better find our seats. We have bigger things to talk about after: Sam's back to school party. Just warning you," turning to look at Sam, "If strippers show up I'm not coming."

"Oh you know, the typical not wearing a blazer crap. You'd think this school would take a hint, but nah." Seeing her face made the mornings better, especially today. Everyone was buzzing about some assembly, but it was just another powerplay by the Queen Bee. Tristan typically ditched these events, but he was already on a thin ice with the faculty. His step-father was the only reason he hasn't been expelled. 'Rich people and their power.'

Nurys little display didn't make Tristan's day any easier. The rivalry between the two musicians wasn't lost on him. Having a girlfriend who one of his friends didn't like wasn't easy. Tristan understands though. He wouldn't deny that Primrose has had it easier in life than some of his friends. Nurys had to work harder than Prim when it comes to their music careers. Although Tristan would never say this to Prim, but he does think it. "Relax, she's harmless." Well, Nurys is dangerous, but the flirting and overly affectionate attitude was just to piss off Primrose. The two both have their relationships and aren't planning to ruin it over some feud.

His grilfriend running off to see her friends wasn't completely uncommon. Did it bother Tristan? Yeah, but he can't say he's not used to it. Tristan chuckled thinking about it. How his past two relationships both were close with his enemies was laughable. Some say he loves the drama and he'd laugh along with it. His life is already a TV drama so might as well just go along with it."Go see your friends, it's fine. But no sitting next to Sam. I'll sit next to anybody else." As much as Tristan didn't like the Queen Bee, her king was even worse. Clara reluctantly accepted the relationship, but Sam has been meddling since the beginning. Being trapped next to Clara was more tolerable.

Tristan moved witht the crowd as everyone was making their way to the school hall. He let out a low whistle at the sight of it. Although it was the student council's task to plan and decorate the assembly, they just followed Clara's orders. She did a nice job, though Tristan wouldn't say that to her face. The catering looked amazing, Liam's family must have done it. Tristan recognized those sweets anywhere. Speaking of which, he hasn't arrived neither has Ivan. He'd have texted then, but Tristan could feel the staff's eyes on him. Maybe later...

Tristan noticed the school's resident playboy in the back. Dante was definitely in his good books. Tristan took a seat in front of Dante, turning around to face him. "Have any fun lately or hoping for that forbidden one?" Tristan couldn't help poking at Dante and Clara's... sexual tension. It's so funny. "Speaking of fun, am I still uninvited from the back to school bash?
