{ Childhood/Family Life }


Lacey wasn't born into the high class family people believe her to be in. She was born to a sixteen year old girl named Monica Giselle Carter who lived in the Bronx, New York. Growing up was always hard from the girl's large family, her mother and father had both be unfaithful to one another leading them to have numerous children outside of their own marriage. But, they loved each other and loved their children from the both of them. They always wanted their children, no matter who they came from, they pushed them to go to college or to the military, which all of them did. Seeing that Monica's parents refused to let their children be adults and stay at home. And, Monica, she was the one everyone knew was going to succeed in life, seeing that she was the one with all the singing talent in the family. It wasn't until she was a junior in high school when her life took a very... unexpected turn. While she was very intelligent in school, making the right life choices wasn't so easy.

She had met a man named Andre Jackson and while there was an age gap between them, they didn't care. They loved each other and had been together for almost two years before getting pregnant with their first daughter, Tatiana Alana Porter, or what she goes by now, Lacey 'The Rocket' Cartier-Porter. While she was unexpected, she was loved but, the couple knew they could care for her and Monica's parents refused to help their daughter in anyway shape or form. And, at first, they managed to get by just fine with Monica still being able to go to school while Andre would watch the baby or drop her off at his parents' house when he had to head to work.

But, then, their 2 month old baby stopped hearing when they spoke to her and decided to take her to the clinic just to make sure everything was okay. There they learned that their eldest child had early signs of lung cancer. They did whatever they could for the three {3} year old girl but soon faced the fact that with all of the medical bills, they had to do what was best for Lacey. So, the couple had to make a decision, give her to a family that could provide for her much more than they could or let their daughter go her whole life having difficulties in everything she did in life. So, they chose to put her up with adoption but, sent her to a nicer orphanage where it was more likely for her to get the care she needed. It killed them giving her up, but they needed to chose what they felt was right and they didn't want to hold their child back anymore than she already would be seeing by the way and where she was raised. They kept in touch everyday to see if she was adopted that day, it didn't take long for a the high class Cartiers to come, wanting to help a special needs child to fall in love with Lacey.

In fact, the baby was only there for about two months before being adopted and brought home with them to their hometown of Odessa, Texas where they raised her as one of their own. They got her the best medicine, the best care, and whatever they had to make the cancer sort of disappear and after awhile it did. And even though they lived far away from the mean streets of New York, Monica and Andre never stopped writing saying how they couldn't wait to see their little girl someday soon. From the time they pout her in the orphanage is when their singing and rapping careers really began taking off. Soon enough they were everywhere and showered their first and second daughters even if they were far away. It wasn't until the letters stopped coming and her foster parents started acting weird did she realize something was wrong. And what she found out completely shattered her life from that point on, two days before they were going to come see their daughter for the first time since giving her up, Monica and Andre both were killed in a double homicide when someone tried to steal their stuff. Lace doesn't know what happened exactly but, she does know that it did leave her with so many questions. Even with all of the stuff she had, she felt a huge part of her missing and she didn't even know what had happened to her sister for another six months only to fine out she too was in a foster family.

But, life went on and it got easier. The family actually moved to New York when Lace was twelve years old. She has never told anyone who her real parents are and she wants to keep it that way as long as she can. At the age of fourteen during her shotput practice, Lace started coughing up a storm and soon coughed up blood. That night, the Cartier's found out that Lacey's cancer has returned and is worst than before. Their doctor said not to worry too much about it but to be careful. So, life went on and Lace was sent to a very nice high school on and sport scholarship. Not that she couldn't afford it esp. with her trust fund from her birth parents but, because they offered to pay for her to come and play shotput and track for them. But, she does hide that fact from her friends and peers only because she has her pride to worry about. But, the worst thing about her scholarship is that even though she is talented. She is far from the best student in the school... Which may be her downfall this year...

{ High School Career }

Lacey has always been pretty popular, sure she's not on the top but with all her sports and her 'diamond' empire family she has never had a hard time making friends esp. in high school. And it only got easier when she became one of the top ranked athletes in the state for track and shotput. Which is why she refuses to tell anyone that she's on scholarship not because she can't afford but, that's money she can spend on anything else. But, she's still somewhat afraid of people judging her for it. (Which is also why she hasn't told anyone who her birth parents are, only her best friend knows but even they don't know the names of her parents.) Anyway, she has been in a relationship before and it was nice but they both just got busy and they both liked different things so they sort of drifted away. She doesn't hate him but, he's not her best friend or anything.

In high school she is far from the best student, no matter what people think. She has a 3.0 weighted GPA and she has to keep that in order to keep her scholarship not just for her high school but, to keep then offers of the colleges she has left to choose between. She may seem smart and she does try but, academics just are her strong suit. But, in all honesty its not just book smarts, she not the sharpest needle either in general but, her heart is in the right place with whatever she does.

Although there was always a bit of tension present between Sydney and Sienna, even if it was only Sydney who felt it, she was glad to be back with all of her girls again. They always had so much fun together and being with them reminded her of how excited she was for the party tonight. It was going to be the perfect start to a perfect senior year, or at least Sydney hoped it would be.

Sydney maintained a friendly smile when Jane brought up her "forgetting" to invite Sydney and Sienna over and she was glad that Sienna didn't make a big deal out of it. "I was working out the final details for tonight and it totally slipped my mind," she commented, glad that the conversation quickly switched gears after that. "Hey! I think Justin is kinda cute," Sydney objected when Jane ignorantly compared his look to that of a lesbian and Sienna, less offensively corrected her and said he just had a childish look. "I would have went for it too when I met him last summer, but he was still with Selena then too," she said to Vivienne with half a smile.

She met the singer at the end of the summer last year when he hosted SNL. Her grandfather and most of the cast wasn't too fond of him but Sydney had a short conversation with him and he didn't seem like the arrogant punk that the media made him out to be. Vivienne and Sienna obviously knew his personality better than she did though, but she at least found his appearance to be attractive.

Sydney maintained her smile as Carter appeared and wrapped his arms around her and Vivienne. Carter was one of the nicest guys that she knew. Not only was he respectful, intelligent and responsible, but he was also attractive. They had been friends since he started dating Vivienne and had continued to be that after they broke up, but once Sydney heard from Jane that Sienna was interested in him, she also developed a sort of affection for him too. She knew that it was probably more of a desire to compete with, or steal from Sienna, than a genuine romantic crush, but she wouldn't admit that to anyone. "Mine was good too," she responded to his question. "But I definitely missed you and Leah. That baby is probably so much bigger than she was last time I saw her!" Sydney had always admired Carter's dedication to his daughter. It was brave of him to take on such a role when caring for a child probably wasn't exactly the biggest dream of most teenage boys.

Before their conversation could go any further, another familiar face appeared. It was Sebastian Jardine, someone who Sydney didn't know particularly well personally, but knew much about reputation-wise. Jane had always warned her against getting too close to him, claiming that she had "friends who said he was bad news" but his bad boy persona was intriguing. He wasn't her usual "type" of guy, but she considered the idea that maybe a new school year would mean new experiences too.

Sydney raised an eyebrow when his first comment was to Sienna about past "fun" that they had. She had never heard of the encounter and didn't believe that whatever Sebastian was talking about was as innocent as the club opening that Sienna tried to explain it to be. She didn't call Sienna out on it but added it to the list of things that she would scope out later on. After he complimented Jane on her glasses, Sydney gave her a gentle elbow to the side and a confused look. Jane insisted that he was basically a villain but she really only saw the charming side of him.

She caught sight of Jane's iPhone screen and saw that she was texting Sebastian Arrendale. Sydney rolled her eyes and didn't hesitate to announce it to their group. "She's texting the other Sebastian. Sorry Seb, but it looks like she's more interested in your name twin than you," she said, her tone a bit spiteful towards the boy but typical for her. She liked to see how people would react to her bitchiness. Some were intimidated and backed down instantly but others, the ones who she would either click well with or clash immensely with, liked to play the game too. Seb was one of the ones who know how to counter her comments, but in an intriguing way. There were others, like Lacey Cartier-Porter, who did it in a way that just pissed her off.

Workout outfit | Workout song (Animals by Maroon 5) | Regular outfit | Her House | Her Bedroom




Lacey was up bright and early, getting ready for her morning jog with Brody. She had been up for a good thirty minutes getting ready; grabbing her earbuds, fully charged phone, and breakfast for not just her, but for her friend as well just in case. Looking at her watch the young girl nodded at time early time before quietly walking through the loft of her family's penthouse suite. She grabbed her ponytail holder and headband from the kitchen counter as she petted her three dogs, Vincent, Vega, and Jules on their heads as they watched her leave. Vincent, being her favorite weeped softly as she exited which made her enter the apartment just to get down on her knees and rub his neck and belly. He let out a quick but, loud bark which made Lacey jump softly before shushing him. She chuckled as she got back up and hurried out the door and into the lobby of her building. She sent her friend a text telling him to meet her in front of her building.

As she waited, she set her playlist on to workout and put in one headphone as she waited for Brody. When he finally got there, she smirked at the little pretty boy before they started their jog. Brody was by far one of the real friends she had, she could be around him without being worried about him judging her and he's the only one who knew her little secret. And if she said she didn't think he was attractive, she would be lying. But, unlike most girls she never thought about him as anything more than that cute friend. Besides, she liked guys with a little bit more of an edge something he loved messing with her about. For the next hour and a half, the pair talked as they jogged around. They talked about school starting and how Lacey was sure as hell that she wouldn't go to the party that Little Miss. Popularity, Sydney Vale was hosting. The blonde hated her and Lacey had no idea what started that on her end, but on Lace's it was when she started hearing the rumors the girl and her little friends would make up about her.

She bitched at Brody about how he could ever think about sleeping with her and why he would want to but, she always got the same answer as always. Which of course, made her roll her eyes and go back to concentrating on their run for a bit before moving on to the next topic, like all the other girls she was certain were crazy about him and hated her for being so close to him. Which she just laughed about. After a while, the pair turned around and went their separate ways to get ready for the day. Knowing that he would be done before her, she just said she would meet him there.


Later that morning

Lacey went back to sleep for a good hour before getting back up for the day with a knock at the door by her mother who was coming to remind her to take her medication. "Mom, relax. I didn't take it yesterday and I'm just fine." She assured her mom only to get a lecture for the next twenty minutes through the door of her bathroom as she took a shower. "... And another thing Lace, you should never not take your medicine! Do you know what could happen if you don't?! We almost lost you once this summer, we don't need a heart attack like that again. We almost lost you and it's like you don't care--"

"Don't care?! Mom, of course I care! I just don't need you to treat me like a baby about it, I mean what about when I go away to college?" She asked as she dried her hair before exiting to her room. "About that, your father and I were wondering if you'd consider staying in state just so we could keep an eye on you." Lacey turned towards her mother with her eyebrows raised in a way that you could tell she was surprised. "You're kidding me right?! Mom, I have offers from Stanford and the University of Florida, full ride might I add, and you're asking me to give that up... for what? So that you can treat me like a child?"

"That's not why are you know it, but look. We're talk about this later once your father gets home." Her mom left it at that as she laid Lacey's medicine down and walked out of the room. Lacey groaned before sighing and walking towards her closet to grab out her outfit for the day. From there, it didn't take her too long to get ready after she took her medicine, she put it in her purse before slipping on her outfit and drying her hair. Looking herself over, she fixed her overly curly, natural hair a bit with a little product before looking herself over in the full length mirror located next to the huge, now open glass window over looking the city. She turned to her side as she looked at the way her jeans hugged her tight curves with a smirk before grabbing her bag and heading out of her apartment building once more to head to her school. She didn't live too far and she had enough time to stop by a local coffee shop to grab a large Salted Caramel Mocha and cranberry muffin as she continued on her walk.

As she walked inside, she could the one and only Sydney Vale with her little band of followers around. She didn't have a problem with any of them except Syd and her friend, Jane. But Carter Preston, well he was just something else. He was like something that you see in a museum, something to look at never to touch, unless she wanted even more crap from Sydney and her friends.

She walked right past them, not giving any of them a second look except Carter. She offered him a small smile and wave as she moved to the side a bit more to avoid from bumping into him. Lacey looked straight ahead taking out her headphones to see if Sydney would say anything about Lace. B

But, once entering the gymnasium Lacey stopped caring as she looked around for Brody and when she spotted him hugging Sephy all she did is get his attention before make a heart with her hand and a small puppy pout. She loved messing with him about the small Asian girl. She knew she liked him and she felt like he somewhat liked her, he just didn't want to face it. Yet, but the moment he did, she would be right there saying, 'I told you so.'

Jane felt relieved yet guilty when Bastion agreed that they could finish their conversation later that night. She wasn't sure that she would even get a chance to speak to him later on but if she did happen to come across him, she hoped that with a few drinks in her system she wouldn't be so uptight. Whether the alcohol would loosen her up enough where she would say too much was yet to be determined but at this point, Jane was ready to drink herself to a point where whatever she did say wasn't more than slurred, incomprehensible words.

Offering only a half way, she was quick to turn back in the direction she came from, only to find that her friends were already on their way inside of the building. She increased her pace, managing to catch up with them before they stepped into the gymnasium. She caught Sydney's question on whether any of them would be bringing a date tonight. "I'm single and so ready to mingle tonight," she added with a small smile. Jane was more of a drunken-mistake hookup kind of girl than one who could maintain a serious relationship with someone. When sober, she was very picky with the guys she associated with, so even if she had hooked up with a semi-decent guy the night before, he rarely met her standards the next morning. Besides that, the past few years had been chaotic enough with her own problems for her to want to add a romantic relationship into the mix.

Now that she was more emotionally stable, getting a boyfriend was definitely on her senior to-do list, but even among the hoards of wealthy and attractive boys at Saint Jude's, none of them really captured her attention. The most "qualified" guys like Carter Preston and Brody Wade had their flaws. Carter already had a kid and was Viv's ex, not to mention that he was on Sienna and Sydney's radar. Brody didn't like Jane and she didn't like him in return. He was a bore and although he was attractive, Jane was sure that if anyone was going to bring 'bad vibes' to the party tonight, it would be him. However, she kept quiet for now. There was no benefits in complaining about Sydney, in front of her anyway. Besides the obvious guys, there was Vincent who was a possibility for a hookup, although Jane would never admit it in front of her friends. He wasn't boyfriend material though, as perfectly portrayed through his betrayal towards Sienna.

When Sienna brought up possibly bringing Lyric, Jane couldn't help but to giggle. She really didn't know Lyric outside of his connection with Sienna, but his name always reminded her of the comments that Sydney would make about his mouth. He was definitely attractive, Jane would give him that much, but his lips reminded her of those that women in New York would die for. Despite the unnecessary comments that Syd would make about them, Jane guessed that they probably made him a pretty decent make out partner. "His lips look better than Kelley Yearly's, and I'm pretty sure she gets lip injections like, every other day," Jane exaggerated, referencing a fellow classmate. "Is he a good kisser?" she then said to Sienna, convinced that even though she had never admitted to hooking up with him, that she must have.

Although most of the students had now entered the gymnasium, it was large enough that it didn't appear to be packed. Friend groups could easily be picked out as they were scattered throughout the room and Jane was able to spot Bastion back with Jake and Daphne. Even if Daphne wasn't enough of a deterrent, Jane quickly moved her gaze away from them, not wanting to make eye contact with Bastion after her less than friendly encounter with him moments before. She also spotted Brody, who had just embraced Persephone Soung. With a raised eyebrow and small smile, she couldn't help but to glance over at Sydney to see what her reaction would be. From what Sydney had told her, she and Brody weren't exclusive or even dating, but she doubted that her friend would appreciate him hugging Sephy before even greeting her. As petty as it was, that was Sydney. The smallest things could set her off and getting on her bad side wasn't wise. That was evident with the next girl who entered her sight: Lacey Porter. Jane didn't like her, but Sydney's hatred towards her far exceeded Jane's. "That girl is such a loser," Jane said, eyeing Lacey with disgust as she strutted past them. It was bizarre for Jane to expect her to acknowledge them in the slightest, especially because of how many viscous rumors Sydney had started about her with no real motive, but she still disliked the idea of anyone just ignoring them.

Lyric pulled into the girls school with a smile. He pulled up to the parking lot and parked. His blond hair fell into his eyes as he walked out of the car.


To: Sia
Srry!!! I'm here now, I was picking out and outfit XD. Anyway are you in the gym?

The boy walked into the school as he headed towards the gymnasium. He spotted a few cute guys, but ignored the feeling he got. His dark blue eyes looked towards the door as he entered. He walked into it seeing a large crowd. His face lit up in a smirk when he felt the crowd's energy around him.

His dark blue eyes turned as he noticed a few people. They swarmed to him, mostly girls. "OMG We love you, can we take a picture? I mean you're really cute!!!" a girl spoke from the group in front of him. Lyric's face turned into an awkward face. "Uh, I don't do autographs...or photos." he spoke before walking away.

To: Sia
So I'm here.....where are you exactly?

"Lyric?" Sydney repeated after Sienna spoke about possibly bringing him tonight. She didn't know the boy very well but when she caught wind of him supposedly disliking her immensely, she obviously wanted very little to do with him. He wasn't someone she would normally invite to any of her parties but if Sienna brought him, Sydney wouldn't object. As exclusive as she liked her parties to be, it was also always interesting to have a few random people there. It was an easy way to prove to them that if they wanted to continue to be invited, they better play by her rules and at least with girls, that was usually enough.

Jane's question about whether he was a good kisser or not caught her attention and she looked over at Sienna inquisitively. If she had in fact hooked up with Lyric, Sydney wanted to know before the rest of the world did. "I agree, his lips are probably like pillows. If you did get with him, I want all of the details." She felt like Sienna could do a lot better than him but she wouldn't put it past her friend. Even though Sydney doubted that there was much truth in it, she liked to believe that Sienna's reputation of being promiscuous was accurate.

She was so focused on her conversation with her friends that she only noticed Lacey when Jane called her a loser. There were only two people who she could have been speaking about, so when Sydney tilted her head back and saw that Daphne wasn't in sight, she was sure it was about Lacey who was now turning into the gymnasium. "She gets uglier every year," Sydney said, shaking her head as if it were a pity. It wasn't true obviously, as Lacey was a pretty girl, but Sydney was known to use every insult in the book against her, accurate or not.

As the girls entered the gymnasium, Sydney quickly picked Brody out of the crowd. The smile that had appeared on her face disappeared just as quickly when she watched him embrace Persephone and then interact with Lacey. Who did they think they were being all over her man in public? And before he even greeted her?! She wanted to scowl and shout at the two girls to get the hell away from him, but Sydney wasn't going to lose her composure like that in front of everyone, especially when she wasn't even dating Brody. She didn't feel like Persephone or Lacey were even real competition anyway, or at least she tried to reassure herself of that. Instead, she headed towards Brody and once he released Persephone, she reached up, wrapped her arms around his neck and gave him a light peck on the lips.

"Long time no see," she said with a smile before pulling away. She looked Persephone up and down before offering her a smile as well. It was disingenuous but Sydney had mastered the art of fake smiles enough that it probably came off as being real enough. "Sephy, right?" she asked, sure that it was the girl's name but wanting to make a point that she wasn't important enough for her to be sure of it. "I didn't know you two were friends. Brody's never mentioned you before," she said, a smile still apparent on her face as she pressed herself closer to Brody. He probably had mentioned Sephy before when they were hanging out and just because she was close with Brody, she did know that he was family friends with her. Still, it seemed more appropriate to show the girl that she was so irrelevant and unimportant that she had very little of an idea as to who she was. Hopefully it would give her enough of a sense to back off of Brody, at least until she decided she no longer wanted to hookup with him.

Sienna laughed when Jane exclaimed with such a cliché statement, not paying attention the first two times when her phone buzzed. When both Sydney and Jane began inquiring about her relationship with Lyric, her nose instinctively wrinkled, a rather disturbed expression on her face.

"Ewww, gross! He's like, a brother!" She exclaimed. Sienna didn't find anything particularly wrong with Lyric. His looks were definitely attractive and if his fans had anything to say about it, Lyric was definitely considered "dreamy" to some. But, in her eyes, he reminded her of Colin in a way - strictly platonic. She wasn't looking to deepen their relationship in that aspect and didn't think the thought would ever cross her mind years from now. Though, a memory of their tour days had her smirking in rememberance over a very...enthusiastic fan that couldn't keep her fans off of him. And let's not forget the celebrities. "And him being a good kisser, you might have to ask one of his fans on that. Though...he obviously did something right; she couldn't keep her hands off him."

When they approached Brody and this Asian girl she could have sworn she had seen before, Sienna only offered a polite smile before finally glancing at her phone, anticipating Lyric's arrival. She was aware that there were a good number of Constance girls who knew of him and his music, and were semi-in love with the blonde male. Not that she blamed them. He was good-looking, nice, and he could sing? Check, check, and check! Sienna smirked at the first message, rolling her eyes idly before returning her gaze to the group and only wishing that she had not.

She had just tuned in to Sydney and Jane's digs on the girl who didn't really do much to them, but whatever. At least, not to Jane anyway. It was no secret that Lacey and Sydney had the worst relationship; sure, her own with the mean girl was definitely not tame, but it was tame enough to fool everyone into believing that everything was good and dandy. Lacey and Sydney? That was World War III, but with bitchy snark and rumors that ran amok in the Constance hallways. And, though she probably would not say this in front of Sydney unless the blonde truly provoked her, but Sienna respected Lacey for her confidence and her ability to give absolutely no fucks about Sydney's high-and-mighty act. The dark beauty paid no attention to titles and would probably beat Sydney to a pulp if pushed.

Any person like that had Sienna's full respect.

And since when did Brody and Sydney have a thing? Sienna's head tilted to the right imperceptibly as Sydney practically draped herself possessively over the goody-two-shoes, who Sienna knew for a fact wasn't her biggest fan. Brody wasn't rude or anything, but they weren't friends. He apparently didn't have a thing for her lifestyle, not that he knew a thing about her lifestyle. All he saw was what she allowed him to see and if being young and having fun seemed to reckless to him, then he could go back and play Scrabble for all she cared. But she was civil enough with the man and they didn't interact much save for when the student councils of Constance and St. Jude's did a collaboration of some sort, which was fine with her. But even Sienna could feel the tension in the room and this just didn't do. It was the first day for goodness sake!

"Sephy?" She turned her attention to Persephone, stopping for a moment to admire the pretty girl's outfit before officially meeting her eyes. "Persephone, right? We took a math class together last year, I think. How was your summer?" Sienna knew that this probably felt misplaced amidst the animosity that Sydney was emanating, but she didn't care. Besides, wasn't Sydney just flirting with Carter? What the hell was that? Her phone buzzed the last time and she glanced at it for Lyric's text only to hear a few girls start squealing and exclaiming. Glancing over her shoulder, Sienna grinned and waved, trying to get his attention.

It was nearing seven when Brody stepped out of the shower to find a group text message from Sephy waiting for him. Jake, Bastion and Daphne had replied to it, with Bastion saying he had his own ride and Jake offering to give a ride to the rest of them. If Brody hadn't already agreed to go with Sydney, he would have happily taken up their offer. He hadn't been able to get in more than a few quick words with all of them that morning and once he got to the party, he doubted that he would be able to socialize with them much anyways. It would have been nice to ride there with him but he wasn't going to cancel his plans with Sydney, especially after getting her to invite Sephy and then inviting Kaitlin and Lacey without even telling her.

To: Sephy Soung, Bastion Arendale, Daphne Peterson, Jake Desai
Sydney and her friends are picking me up on the way so I'm good. If anyone needs a ride, I'm sure she won't mind if you come.


Brody knew that Sydney definitely would mind if he brought some of them along, but he wanted to be polite and thought that especially if Jake had already offered to drive, they would prefer his ride anyway. After texting them back, he figured he would share their plans with Lacey in case she needed a ride. He wasn't going to push his luck anymore by offering her a ride with Sydney, since he knew with the bad blood between the two girls, that would be going too far.

To: Lacey Porter
You still coming tonight? Jake's driving some of the others if you need a ride. I'm going with Sydney and her friends or else I'd offer to pick you up ;).


As he got dressed, heremembered that although he had mentioned the party to Kaitlin at school that day, he had never actually sent her the details on it like he had said. He instantly felt bad, thinking that she would feel like he purposely blew her off, so he sent her a quick Facebook message, not having gotten her number.

To: Kaitlin Kingsley
Hey, sorry for not messaging you sooner. If you still want to come tonight, here's the info. Just tell them that I invited you if anyone asks :).


Brody knew to expect Sydney soon, so after he got dressed, he poured himself a glass of water and sat at the kitchen table. He was surprised with himself for actually being nervous about the night. It was going to be one of the biggest parties of the year and he was sure it would be fun, but he wasn't in the mood to deal with any drama and after inviting three girls against Sydney's will, even if she had allowed Sephy, he felt like something was going to go wrong. It always did.
