✧Hᴀɪʀ✧
Teegan's hair is naturally brown, but she dyes it blonde. She prefers that color of her natural one. It tends to bring out her eyes more. She has had her hair in many different lengths. Currently it is medium length, just grazing pass her shoulders. She might cut it or she might let it grow. She has not decided yet.

✦Eʏᴇs✦
Her eyes are a chestnut brown. They are round and full of desire. When she does her makeup, she likes to make her eye color look darker or lighter. She is not past using false eyelashes or a bright eye shadow.

✧Sᴋɪɴ✧
Teegan has a gold with subtle brown color on her skin. She takes very good care of her skin. Between constant spa trips to throughly washing her skin every time she is in the shower, she makes sure that she is shining. There are no prominent scars on her body. Anything she got as a child has completely disappeared. She has normal ear piercings. She was thinking about cartilage at one point in time, but she decided against it. She does have a couple tattoos. One behind the ear. Another one On her hand. She does plan on getting more.

✦Hᴇɪɢʜᴛ & Wᴇɪɢʜᴛ✦
Teegan is rather short, standing at 5'5. And she weighs a rather healthy 130lbs. She tries to keep herself rather healthy, though it can be hard when she is obsessed with sweets.

✦In Depth✦
Teegan likes to entertain the idea that as a famous singer, she has her life together. And she does so by appearance. She dresses in top designers. She tends to have a girly side when it comes to outfits. Dresses, skirts, and heels are her favorite thing to throw on. She finds them rather comfortable. Other times she will wear jeans and a normal t-shirts. Teegs keeps up with her other basic girl needs. Like getting her nails and hair done on a regular basis. She plucks her own eyebrows, because she does not trust anyone else with it. Her tattoos do not have meanings. She just enjoys the way they look on her. She does want another one, but she is unsure of what it should be. Teegan's style is rather simple and can easily be duplicated. Finally, Teegan has a smile that could light up a room. It is contagious and can often lead to uncontrollable laughter.

╚══════════════════════════╝

One the outside, Teegan looks as though her entire life is put together. She lives in a rather expensive studio apartment, in the heart of the city. She is a well known singer. She works for a very famous music producer. Teegs has good friends and a big heart. She is always making special appearances for people and seems to have her morals in the right place. And Teegan has worked very hard for that image. It took years of lying and manipulating until the media saw her they way she thought she should be. Perfect.

This is not far from the truth. Teegan is rather kind and has a big heart. Her all too trusting and social nature brings her more and more 'friends'. They ask her for favors and she provides of course. That is what good friends do. Every other week, its like Teegan has a new person following her around and being nice to her. Each time Teegs is fooled in thinking that they actually want to be her close friend. But of course, the fame is really all they want. And then once they get what they want from her she never hears from them. Teegan makes it seem like she does not mind, but it is slowly starting to get to her.

The singer/songwriter has a very creative mind. She always carries a notepad and pen with her. She never knows where inspiration is going to hit her. Though after editting and recording, her music sounds more of like what the 'label' thinks is good. Her meaning is still there and she initially got to write it. Her creativity is not just showing through her music, but through her impulsive nature. When an idea comes to her head, it does not take very long to think up a good plan and act out that idea. The only problem is that she tends to act on most ideas that she has without so much as a second thought. Some how she has managed to keep the media from catching all her bad impulsive ideas, but she has nearly ruined her image multiple times. It does not help that she excessively drinks alcohol. It just adds to the impulsivity.

She is also a very sexual person. She likes to be touched and pleasured. The blonde enjoys using her bodies abilities to the fullest. Everything from her voice to her moans. Though she is picky about who takes her to bed, she will continually return to that person. When she is not touching someone, she is very intimate. Handing touching, closeness, hugging, a kiss here and there are all apart of what Teegan loves. A lot of the time her intimacy does lead sex. And she prefers it that way.

Teegs is an extremely hard worker. She puts one hundred percent of her soul into her work. There is not a day that goes by that she is not working. Even if she is not in the studio, she is at a photo shoot or keeping up her image. Every time Teegan steps out onto the street she is working. She has no problem with it. She enjoys signing autographs and smiling all the time. It makes other people happy therefore she can easily pretend that she is happy as well.

Sadness is unknown to her fans. They have never seen her at low point, though it was a low point that has helped kickstart her career. She is always smiling in front of the cameras and in front of fans that she has no time to mope around. But Teegan has never really gotten over her breakup. In fact she is beyond miserable. But she keeps it bottled up. Teegan cannot remember when she has expressed any negative emotion in front of anyone. It has started to become a problem. She is starting to get bad panic attacks. Not from stress. Every now and then when she is feeling emotionally distressed and hides it, she will later breakdown. She hyperventilates, cries, and shakes. Never has this happened in front of anyone and she is trying to keep it that. Panic Attacks aren't part of her perfect image.

She has an excessive amount of alcohol in her apartment for after her panic attack. She will drink to her heart contents. Until her heart does not hurt anymore. Until she can't remember to have a panic attack. Teegan is slowly forming an addiction, but this is her form of anxiety medicine. When she is buzzed or drunk, she has no worries. No stress. The world is actually good and Teegs is truly happy.

✦Lɪᴋᴇs✦
✧ Sweets ✧ ↣ Teegan likes anything sweets. Hard candy, chocolate, cake. Anything with excess sugar can be found in her studio. She has had this sweet addiction since she was a child. She has a better handle on it now than she did as a kid.

✧ Singing ✧ ↣ Her entire life is based on her ability to sing. She enjoys what she does. Song writing and making a track is something that brings her everlasting joy. She has been singing since she was a small child standing before a church. Now she sings for millions of people.

✧ Alcohol ✧ ↣ She did not discover this love until she was 21. She experimented with many different drinks in her birthday. She ended up with a headache and desire for more. She is not an alcoholic, but she does pick a day where she gets wasted. She often drinks while writing. It starts out as motivation and ends with her not being able to focus on the pencil in her hand.

✧ Sex ✧ ↣ Anything that brings her pleasure is a major plus in her book. She is picky about who she sleeps with and does not go around opening her legs for anyone. But she does like to be intimate and hands on. She has often combined alcohol and sex. It has brought both bad and good results. There aren't enough bad results to make her stop.

✧ Going Out ✧ ↣ Teegan is a socialite. She cannot be by herself for long periods of time unless she is writing music or sleeping. Other than that, she is always out of her home. She likes hanging out and finding something to do. She attends many parties, galas, and premiers just to be around a bunch of people.

✧Dɪsʟɪᴋᴇs✧
◆ Bad Publicity ✦ ↣ It ruins her image. The media starts spewing lies or secrets about her and then she has to work twice as hard to get the publicity to go away. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. The one that refuses to go away is the one where everyone assumes her boobs are fake. They aren't. She does not even have the money to go get a random boob job.

✦ Drugs ✦ ↣ Teegan has seen what it does to some people and she avoids it. She does not want to fuck up her life entirely. Maybe a little marijuana if the person offering it is trustworthy, but for the most part she stays away.

✦ Crying in front of people ✦ ↣ Teegan is confident. She tries to keep a smile on her face. But she is a human that faces problems all the time. And so she does not like to show that weakness in front of people. In fact when she feels like she is going to cry, she walks away.

✦ Betrayal ✦ ↣ She cannot count the amount of people that have come into her life and walked right out. People will pretend to be her friend for money, for a story, or for sex. She hates it. She is very wary of people, but it's hard to tell when everyone seems nice.

✦ Coffee/Tea ✦ ↣ She just does not like it. Something about the taste just puts her off. She sticks with water and soda.


▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

✧Tᴀʟᴇɴᴛs✧
✦ Singing ✦ ↣ Teegan has been singing since she was a young child. Her voice was a gift, at least that is what her parents said. They had her singing at church. All the practice solidified her skills. She sang at talent shows, events, weddings, etc. It was not long before she was discovered. And now she makes money doing what she loves.

✦ Cosmetics ✦ ↣ She became really good at doing her own eyebrows and makeup. Though she can do her own nails, she prefers to have someone else do it. But she has been become a master at blending and plucking. She does it for friends some times. If she was not a singer she would definitely be a make up artist.

✦ Lying ✦ ↣ Though she does not like when others lie about her, she has to lie in order to keep her image up. She has gotten quite good at lying about things going on in her life. It keeps the media about her in a positive light. The media thinks she is a fantastic singers with big plans. They don't know that she is actually heartbroken and confused. But that's her little secret.

✦ Drinking Alcohol ✦ ↣ She has built up her alcohol tolerance by a lot. She can drink much more than she could at 21 and for a lot longer. It might be branching out into an addiction, but it is not slowing Teegan down. It takes a lot for her to get drunk, but she is a advocate for it. She thinks everyone should try it.

✦Fʟᴀᴡs✦
✧ Cooking ✧ ↣ Teegan has messed up boiling water. There are countless times where she has almost burned down the complex that she lives in. It is better if she just does not walk into the kitchen unless it is to heat up take out. She does go out to eat a lot or have someone cook for her. It is just dangerous for her to turn on the stove.

✧ Stubborn ✧ ↣ Teegan does not like to back down from anything she believes in. If she thinks she can do something, she will do it. She hates being told she cannot do something. It just makes her want to do it more. It keeps her devoted to her work, but it can also get her in trouble with other people when they are trying to change her for the better.

✧ Under Exaggerating her Negative Emotions ✧ ↣ Teegan likes to keep up the idea that everything is okay. So when she is extreme distress, she plays it off. If she looks okay than people will assume she is okay when she isn't. Her friends practically have to force her to open up.

✧ Too Trusting ✧ ↣ Despite having been lied too, manipulated, and tricked she still tends to put too much trust on people. She has the intention that no one will do her harm. She is always wary at first, but by the end of the day she treating them like she has known them her entire laugh.

✧Secrets✧
✦Sleeping with her Music Producer ✦ ↣ Granted, her producer is beautiful. He is making her famous and he was hitting on her. Teegan does not deny her attraction to him, so there is no real harm in sleeping with him. Besides the fact that he has a wife and he is her boss. But so long as no one knows, she is in the clear.

✦In Love with The Entrepreneur ✦ ↣ The breakup was hard and heartbreaking. Teegan is unsure if she would give him a second chance if he came back to her. But she is in love with him. He was her first love and she cared deeply for him. Too this day if some one asked if she loved him she would say yes. Maybe not out loud, but it would be a yes. She has a great job so far, keeping it to herself.

✦ Panic Attacks ✦ ↣ Every now and then, though they are now becoming more frequent, she will have a mental breakdown. All her negative emotions build up and come up on their own. It is usually while she is alone for long periods of time. When she is left to her thoughts, it gives her the opportunity to think about her messed up life. She does not want anyone to find out.

✦ Slight Alcohol Addiction ✦ ↣ Teegan loves the taste. There is nothing she loves more than sipping some whiskey while writing a song. But she mostly uses it to keep her negative emotions from coming to the surface. She drinks more when she is alone. She is starting to become an alcoholic, but she prefers alcohol to panic attacks.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

✧Dʀᴇᴀᴍs✧
✦ Becoming an Internationally Famous Singer ✦ ↣ Teegan wants to travel the world and entertain everyone with her voice. She wants to make it big. She wants people to beg and plead for her to show up to one of their events. She wants to be as famous as Beyonce. She really is trying, but it has not worked out for her quite yet.

✦Find Love Again✦ ↣ Teegan wants to get over The Entrepreneur. She truly does. It is just giving her heartache it. And she wants to find love some where else. With someone that wants to spend the rest of their life with the imperfect Teegan and not Singer/Songwriter Teegan Hansley.

✦Fᴇᴀʀs✦
✧ Large Bodies of Water ✧ ↣ Teegan cannot swim. She has tried to learn and it just ended badly. She stays away from water that she cannot stand in. There is a reason why she does not sing on cruise ships. She honestly believes that she will drown out in the water and no one will be able to save her. Teegan is just fine on land.

✧ Getting Caught with her Producer ✧ ↣ Though the sex is great, he is still married and her boss. If anyone was to find out, she would lose her singing career. The last thing she wants to lose everything she worked so hard for.

✧ Having a Panic Attack in Public ✧ ↣ Teegan will be a laughing stock and her perfect image ruined. No one would want to be with a depressed washed up singer. So far she has been doing a good job at keeping her panic attacks in private.

✧ Losing her Career ✧ ↣ Nothing will destroy, Teegan more than losing the thing she loves the most. If she is not able to sing, she is not sure what she will do withe herself. She is doing her best to keep her secrets under the wraps so that this does not happen.

Thomas Hansley✧ ↣ Father ↣ Alive
Rebecca White-Hansley✦ ↣ Mother ↣ Deceased
Hunter Hansley✧ ↣ Brother ↣ Alive


✦Hɪsᴛᴏʀʏ✦
Teegan was born to a typical Christian family. Every Sunday was church day. Every holiday was spent in front of the cross. Meals could not even be looked at until someone said grace. Teegan was the youngest and named after her grandmother. She has an older brother named Hunter. They were relatively close. When they weren't at church they were hanging out together, protecting one another. They did argue a lot about things, but it is the same amount of arguing that most siblings go through. At the end of the say they were really close.

Her father is a lawyer and a pastor for the church. They were always front row, listening to the detailed sermon he has rehearsed the entire week before. It sounded the same. It always sounded the same. Teegan and Hunter always had to keep their talking to a bare minimum. Their mother would whack them if they were caught laughing or giggling about something. Her mother was no part of the church. She just supported dad when he preached. Her mother was a house rep. She sold houses up and down the neighborhood. She was really good at what she did. The Hanley's were a basic middle class family.

Teegan had started singing since she was 7. Her mother had put her in the children's choir. At first, Teegs did not like it. She had tried to get out of it many times. Pretending she was sick, trying to strain her voice, running away, etc. Nothing worked. She sang in the children choir until she was 12. Teegan tried out to be lead singer of the praise band and her desire to sing has taken off from there. She went to praise band competitions and has won many first place trophies. When she was 16 her brother and her would make youtube videos of her singing and Hunter playing the guitar. They were actually really good.

When Teegan was 18 her mother died of a brain aneurism. The death shook the family. There was an elaborate funeral for her and the entire church came out. There was family, Teegs had never met before that showed up to attend. For a year or so no one did anything. Teegan stopped singing. Hunter took a couple semesters off from college. Their father started working from home. It was the church that got them all back into the rhythm. Though Teegan never believed in God, she was grateful to have the church fix her family. It wasn't until Teegan was 25 when she got discovered as a singer. A producer heard the song she wrote from her heartbreak and decided to call her.

Two years of hard work and not her name is all over the place. Though she had to change a bit of who she is and how she acted, it was for the best. Though two years was long enough to get herself in very compromising situations. The producer had started hitting on her early in her career, but she had brushed him off. She was trying to focus on her music. But with that same year she became more impulsive and drank way more alcohol. Once of those drunken nights was spent in the producer's bed. It was then that she just decided to keep it up where sober or drunk. Her panic attacks were more recent since she does not openly share distressing emotions and hides them with alcohol. Teegan is slowly declining and no one knows. She refuses to tell her family. And any one close to her will judge her. So she just indulges in her alcohol, praying to the god she doesn't believe in for help.

Need You Now | Lady Antebellum

Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the phone 'cause I can't fight it anymore.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time.

[Chorus:]
It's a quarter after one, I'm all alone and I need you now.
Said I wouldn't call but I've lost all control and I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without.
I just need you now.

Another shot of whiskey, can't stop looking at the door.
Wishing you'd come sweeping in the way you did before.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time.

[Chorus:]
It's a quarter after one, I'm a little drunk and I need you now.
Said I wouldn't call but I've lost all control and I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without.
I just need you now.

Oh, whoa
Guess I'd rather hurt than feel nothing at all.

[Chorus:]
It's a quarter after one, I'm all alone and I need you now.
And I said I wouldn't call but I'm a little drunk and I need you now.
And I don't know how I can do without.
I just need you now
I just need you now.
Oh, baby, I need you now.

Gossip Girl here and as we all sadly know, it is the end of the summer. I know, I know - heartbreaking, right? Back to longer days and nights in the office, homework and let's not even forget the copious amounts of hot coffee and tea we're all going to be sipping on once winter takes a bite out of our asses. But, if you're any of our fine citizens of the Upper East Side, you're probably not worried about such things. In fact, if you are anyone, you would be in The Hamptons where the Shanks are hosting their infamous annual White Party on the lawn of their gorgeous estate. And if you're not, well...then I'll sip on those scrumptious strawberry mimosas and partake in a few macaroons in your honor.

At about thirty minutes past two in the afternoon, every filthy rich Upper East Sider makes their way to one of the most beautifully appointed mansions in Southhampton, about fifteen minutes from the beach when driving. Either way you put it, you know it's going to be breathtaking. And while everyone else is decked in the appropriate white attire for the obviously over-priced event, you all already know that I'm going to be there too. Watching...waiting...and in utter impatience for the delicious events that are sure to unfold. XOXO, Gossip Girl.

"Don't see the big deal, sis," Marcel said into the phone and Aaliyah shut her eyes, pinching the bridge of her nose in frustration and having to ignore the way her Isabel Marant cuff clanked against the device she held up against her ear. She could already feel a headache coming on and it was only three o'clock in the afternoon. The majority of the guests had arrived earlier with a few stragglers coming and going. Under normal circumstances, like when someone else was hosting an event at a gallery or even one that wasn't even important, Aaliyah barely even thought to text either of her siblings to see where they were. If she saw them, she saw them. If she did not, then that was the story and that was fine. However, this was an event their mother was throwing. Meaning, everyone was going to hear Debby's mouth until all of her family members were present. And by everyone, Aaliyah typically meant herself. "Can't you just magically convince her to let it go or something? You're good at that." Aaliyah bristled. It was a good thing she was in her bedroom and not anywhere downstairs where anyone could see her current facial expression.

"Hell no! This is not a box of Lucky Charms, but you better magically teleport yourself here or so help me God, I will magically shove my foot up your ass, Marcel." She hissed into her cell phone. She could hear her brother's eye roll through the phone. "I don't care if you have to convince your flavor of the month that you'd rather dip her in the chocolate fountain on front, be here. Now." She refused to encourage any more of his excuses by ending the call, letting out a frustrated sigh before trying to relax herself enough to return to the guests. This was not even her own event and she was already stressing. Aaliyah had changed her outfit twice before deciding on her Halston Heritage jumpsuit because Debby had made face after face when she saw her daughters' choices. She had had to leave Beau's side when Shailene pulled her aside to say that Debby was furious that Marcel wanted to bail on them for some girl he stole away to California. And suddenly, Aaliyah had to be the one to resolve the issue since Debby couldn't just call her son. Aaliyah shook her head quickly to dispel the negativity, though she could still feel herself brimming with aggravation when she rose from her perch on her childhood bed.

Before heading out, she stopped to check her reflection, styling her hair back into the messy bun from earlier in the morning so that her Jennifer Fisher earrings could be seen better. Sliding her cell back into her Louboutin clutch, she gave herself one more final glance over before heading out, ignoring the servant who asked if everything was alright. No, everything was not alright, but she was here, wasn't she? Wasn't that enough of a reason to not ask that dumb ass question? By the time Aaliyah was back on the first floor, a cordial smile was painted back on her face. In passing, she nodded to a few guests, the sound of her Miu Miu sandals echoing when she reached the outside portico. The spacious lawn of her family's estate was filled with white tables and a sea of white-attired bodies, the flashes of green from the lush grass peeking out amidst the stark color all of the guests wore. Some sported bikinis and swimsuits, others more elegant apparel. It was the one time of the year, other than if someone did a special event, that she had to deal with such an onslaught of the color, and Aaliyah was already annoyed despite the tasteful elegance of the event. The White Party was the one event Debby did not allow any other member of the family to host, which was why it was a big deal that Marcel was not present. No one missed their own mother's party, especially not because they were chasing tail as if they hadn't had a different one three weeks ago.

Her eyes roved over the crowd and she saw a few notable faces, though none of them being the main one she was looking for. A few of her followers nodded in her direction and she only offered a longer gaze before glancing around before she saw a familiar blonde head. Without hesitation, Aaliyah made her way over to Juliet, exhaling loudly when she reached her and looping her arm with the heiress. "Girl, tell me why Marcel's trying to get me killed and I'm not even the one who didn't show up," she immediately complained to the blonde, accepting a cranberry mimosa when it was offered from an approaching server.

TEEGAN HANSLEY
Outfit
Location The White Party : The Shanks' Hampton Estate




Teegan stared at her ceiling. Her body unmoving and her breathing labored. In a few moments she needs to start getting ready for The Shanks party. She had gotten an invitation. At first she thought it was to be entertainment, but it seems like they honestly want her to attend. Teegan eagerly accepted the invitation and almost instantly regretted it. She figured out who was invited and has been trying to find ways to get out of it. But its hard to get out of a very important party. This is a career move for her. Despite all the people that would be there. Juliet being one of them. A scowl came to her lips at the thought of the pretentious blonde. A spoiled princess who never did anything on her own. Despite all the money she has, Teegan work ten times harder and earned way more. Just the idea of seeing the bitch was making it hard for her to want to attend. Turning her head to the left she saw her producer putting his clothes back on. "You can't be late for this party Teegan." he mumbled to her.

She rolled her eyes and pulled the blanket over her face. He sounded like her father. Her father had not failed to text her hours early to say that he was attending the party with his new 'girlfriend'. His new girlfriend was the bitch's mother of course. Which only added to the hatred she held for the blonde. "I know. I know. You sound like a broken record, Michael." She exclaimed, her voice muffled by the covers. "I have to repeat myself when you don't seem to be listening. Get out of bed." Michael turned around and yanked blankets from her hands. He exposed half of her naked body to the cold air. Getting dressed was the last thing on her mind right now. Especially with her producer's eyes roaming her body. "I can't get dressed with you staring at me." Teegan wrapped her arms around her own body. "Besides. Don't you need to get back to Mrs. Lyles." she teased. They were both attending the party. Michael nodded and grabbed his shirt from the left side of her bed. Quickly leaning down and planting a kiss on her lips, her grabbed the rest of his things he headed out of her bedroom. "Get dressed Hansley." he said right before he shut the front door.

Her chocolate hued eyes glanced at the clock. She had and hour and half to get dressed and get to the party. A sigh escaped her and she finally pushed herself off of the bed. She dashed into the bathroom and started cleaning herself up. She smelled like sex and rum initially and now she smelled like tranquility and grapefruit. A towel wrapped around her waist and she did her hair and makeup. Making sure each eyebrow was even, she determined her makeup was good enough. She put on her matching bra and underwear set and then squeezed herself into the white dress. Gripping the sides of her dress, she pulled up the bottom and walked towards her silver heels. The strap was secure and then she stood before a body mirror. She looked decent for pulling this together in about forty-five minutes. She smiled proudly at herself and then she grabbed her phone. Teegan phoned for her driver.

Within twenty minutes she arrived at the estate. Many people had already arrived. There was really one person that she was looking for. She was honestly hoping that the blonde bimbo would not be with her father. Finally she spotted him with his girlfriend. Juliet was just a couple steps away talking to the hosts daughter. Teegan grabbed a glass of champagne on her way towards her father. She smiled brightly at him. "Hi daddy." she said. Her father leaned down and kissed her cheek. "Hello Teegan. You looked lovely." he responded. Her smile brightened. Teegan smiled politely at his girlfriend, but did not say anything to her. Just an older version of the spoiled brat. "I have to mingle. Michael said. I will talk to you later." she assured her father.

The singer songwriter, sipping her champagne enjoy the aesthetic of the party. She talked to be people that she did know and people that she did not know. She was very polite. And she was actually happy not to have run into Gabriel yet. He does not seem to be here yet. Teegan did not want to watch him follow around Juliet like some love sick puppy. Not when she would rather he follow her around. And Edward has yet to be found. Another relief. She did not want to deal with someone she was using as rebound. At least not right now. Maybe later tonight. After a couple more glasses of champagne.

"The summer should go out with a bang, but I'd prefer it be a blonde
that I bang..."

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
"Nah, no business talk for me today, man. Today's all about relaxation. Scotch, food, and relaxation." If he knew which girl he wanted today to be about, he would have thrown her name in there too. Anyone who knew Gabe would know that his first answer for that question would be Juliet, and it wasn't like today was any different. He didn't even know why he was so captivated by the blonde. Maybe it was because he knew he couldn't have her. Even when they were sleeping together, years ago, she wasn't actually his. She wanted the drugs that he had, not him. Her lack of interest then, coupled with Aaliyah's warning that he better not try that again, plus her no longer needing his drugs, meant that he was likely chasing something that he would never have. He was a smart guy, there was no arguing that, so even he couldn't explain to someone why he didn't just give up. Juliet was gorgeous, but there were hoards of other gorgeous girls in the Upper East Side that he could have if he wanted. Like Teegan. She was someone who he actually had loved at one point, and the love had been reciprocated. He had a chance there, and one that he knew would actually be good for his life, and yet he couldn't even drop this... obsession... even for true love. It was crazy, and by now, he had convinced himself that he just needed to sleep with Juliet one last time to get the lust out of his system before he moved on. He knew that that would be a dangerous game to play, though. Not only had Teegan been texting him more lately (usually when she was intoxicated), but he knew that Aaliyah's warning still stood, despite it being made years ago. If he made real moves on Juliet, he knew it would cause drama, but maybe it was time to say "oh well". Gabe was a business man. He knew that when dealing with risky business, you had to make your move before it was too late, and he didn't want to miss his chance. The summer was almost over, maybe tonight would be his lucky night.

"Aaliyah?" He repeated, turning his head backwards as he tried to remember where he had last seen her. "I thought I saw her over there a little while ago. Talking to my future wife. You think I should seal the deal with Juliet tonight? Take her back to my place? Remind her of what she's been missing all these years?" Though his smirk made it evident that he knew he was being cocky, he wasn't joking with what he was saying. What probably made the situation messed up, though, was that while he was speaking about Juliet like that, he couldn't stop himself from sending a text to Teegan.

To: Teegan
i always said you looked good in white. today's no exception.

Location The White Party : The Shanks' Hampton Estate




The blonde was tired of mingling. The smile was starting to hurt her cheeks. The champagne did not have a high enough alcohol concentration for her and to tie all this together she had spotted her ex. Teegan did not stare at Gabriel for long, in fact she made it a point to stay away from him. Though she would never admit this out loud, she still loved him. She would do just about anything for him. And it completely destroyed her when they broke up because the stupid spoiled bitch that she might have to soon call a step sister. Just that idea forced, Teegs to down the contents in the glass and grab another one.

She had seen Brynn and Erin over the way, conversing. She would make a point to talk to them before the night was up. But Michael, her producer, wanted her to use this party as a career booster. Casually drinking with friends was not a part of the plan. She took a sip of champagne. She needed to calm her nerves. More than anything she wanted to go home and become best friends with her Jack Daniels. It was better than this. Better than playing pretend. She would not be able to keep up this perfect image for long. Her phone buzzed and she glanced at the message sender. It was Gabriel. Rarely, does he send messages to her. Usually Teegan sends then when she is highly intoxicated. She read the message, not being able to stop the small smile that crept across her face. More than anything she wanted to respond in a way that would get him to take her home. But she was not drunk enough. And she is supposed to be over him

To: Gabriel
Thank you. You look quite handsome

That was safe. This party was going to be the death of her. "Teegan." She turned to her father's voice. Mrs. Arnault was linked to his arm, so the blonde smiled as politely as she could. "Could you find Juliet so we can all take a picture together." The smiled died. Teegan's main plan for tonight was to stay away from her. Every time they were together, they were arguing about something. "No." she said simply. Her father was not taking that as an answer. "Go find her. Now." It was as if Teegan was a child. Reluctantly agreeing, she went on the hunt for a skinny blonde bitch. It should not be hard to find a spoiled princess in the crowd. There were only two at this party. Aaliyah and Juliet.

After finishing another glass of champagne, she found Juliet. "Save the glare. Our parents want a picture." she said, not even attempting to pretend that she likes her. "The quicker we take this picture, the sooner we no longer have to see each other." She assured the blonde. Teegan waited for some arguing followed by some form of agreement. They needed to take this picture or their parents would just come and get them to do it later. She glanced over at Brynn and Erin for a moment before deciding to text them.

To: Erin, Brynn
I will need to be rescued soon

『Juliet Arnault』 & 『Teegan Hansley』

Who the fuck does he think he is?! Juliet could not even comprehend that Beau had actually had the audacity to come at her like that. She had thought that she was being unnecessarily polite by even entertaining his presence minutes before. Did he not realize that she knew that he was a cheating pig, who had hurt her best friend? Did he think that his actions were somehow not severe enough to be cut out of Aaliyah's life completely, and kicked out of the Upper East Side's exclusive circle? He had gotten incredibly lucky that he had brainwashed Aaliyah enough before cheating on her, that she decided to give him another chance after the atrocity he committed with Brynn, so apparently, that had went to his head. He really thought that it was "his" business, and though in reality, it was, Juliet didn't see it that way. In her mind, he had basically committed a crime against humanity, and she was protective (and equally self-absorbed and dramatic) enough to act as if she had as much of a right as Aaliyah to hate him. Between her feeling like his act of infidelity as a personal attack on her, and then him coming at her when she felt like she hadn't even done anything wrong moment before, it was safe to say that she was sure that Aaliyah would come to her senses and call the wedding off when she relayed this encounter back to her best friend. She would be all talk in a few minutes, but Beau had caught her mid-sip of her mimosa, and had left her in a moment of shock before she could conjure a cutting response to spit back at him.

Him leaving before she had a chance to combat his criticism left her feeling even more heated, enough so that she paused sipping her mimosa and instead, spun around as he headed off, and stormed off to search for Aaliyah. Her luck led her to not only not find Leah where she had left her minutes before, but to have her pursuit interrupted by none other than Teegan, who was one of the last people she wanted to see in that moment, or ever. "Funny joke. I would rather be murdered than be photographed with you," Juliet responded quickly, a roll of her eyes indicating how silly she thought it was that Teegan would even think she would consider such a request. It wasn't surprising that their parents, and her mother in particular, were probably pushing for it, but Juliet wasn't going to consider such a request at this time. Not when she needed to find Aaliyah, and more so, not when Teegan and her father were definitely not family to her. In her mind, it made sense that Teegan was probably dying to join her family, because for one, Juliet had a high opinion on herself, and two, Teegan's own mother had passed away, and Juliet thought this somehow meant she was searching for a replacement. Juliet had her own father, and her own sister. Why would she take on another pair, especially when she felt them to be of a lower class than her?

Teegan did not have time for the princess to be rebellious. Their parents wanted a picture and she just wanted to get it out of the way. Having to deal with Juliet's attitude was not part of the plan. In fact it was up to Teegan, they would not even be talking at the moment. ""Trust me. I would rather be the one murdering you. The blonde glared at her future step sister. She never understood why her father needed to go and try and find love again. Him, Teegan, and her brother, Hunter, were family enough. Then he had to go and find the Arnault's. Playing pretend house was no longer amusing. Teegan did not have time for this any longer. "Now let's go. I just want this picture done with so I don't have to see your face for the rest of the night" With that, she turned on her heels and started heading towards where their parents were.

It was definitely easy to get under Juliet's skin because she was sensitive and dramatic. As seen with the Beau incident, she took things very personally because frequently, she expected people to just succumb to her requests and deal with her behavior, but she couldn't handle or understand how people could act similarly towards her. Teegan was definitely one of the people that Juliet found herself annoyed with almost instantly, and though she would tell you that it was because Teegan was a complete bitch, her own attitude had a lot to do with it. Had she not acted so condescending and disgusted by her mother's decision to interact with the family when it all began, maybe the two could have been friends, or at least civil. Juliet refused to compromise to anyone else's desires though, so when her mother refused to break up with Teegan's father, she had just continued to be melodramatic and bratty about it all, as if that would somehow result in her getting her way. Considering how long the two had been happily dating, one would have thought that Juliet would have gotten the message now, that a breakup wasn't likely. Juliet could have easily spun away and walked in the opposite direction after Teegan returned an insult to her and began towards their parents, but she didn't. She followed just a step behind her, not because she wanted to take the picture, but because she was petty and didn't want to let another "personal attack" go unanswered. "Please, don't even try to act like you're not obsessed with me. You come to every party I go to, even when you're not even friends with Aaliyah. Or are you just here to stalk your weird ex-boyfriend?"

Teegan thought she was going to have to drag the blonde towards the family, but she willing followed behind. She was grateful for that. Her father would not be pleased if his daughter had Juliet by her long blonde hair, dragging her towards everyone like some caveman. This was more civilized and worked well with her image. As a server waltzed by, Teegan took hold of another glass of champagne. Any more glasses and she won't have room for Jack Daniels. For a moment the blonde's silence was a gift. No attitude. No talk backs. But of course she brought up how Teegan was clearly obsessed with her. There was only one person in the world that was obsessed with her and he was standing over with his best friend. She took another sip of champagne."I attend parties that I am invited too because it is polite." She started, taking another sip of her alcohol. "If the invitation had also added, spoiled brat and obsessive ex will be in attendance I would have burned it" Teegan managed not to say the world happily, at the end of that. She stopped walking and turned to face Juliet. "You're mother may have told you that you are something special. But I'm here to tell you that you are nothing more than a snobby princess with a stick shoved too far up her ass. All my life decisions have nothing to do with you and I will gladly keep it that way." She smirked and turned back around to continue walking towards her father. Hopefully this shut her up.

As Juliet followed behind Teegan, she managed to get a text out to Aaliyah saying, "btw I hate Beau" before responding to Teegan again. She had rolled her eyes, despite them being focused on the phone, at what Teegan was saying. Juliet had no feelings for Gabriel at all. If anything, she found him to be obsessive, like Teegan said. Their hookups when she was just a teenager had meant nothing to her at the time, and nothing to her now, and yet he had never seemed to move on from them. She thought highly of herself in a lot of aspects, but even she wasn't cocky enough to claim that she had been that good in bed, especially as an inexperienced young girl. She didn't know why Gabriel continued to pursue her, especially after he slept with Leah, but considering that his big relationship had been with Teegan, she also couldn't say that she was surprised that he had gotten bored of her fast. Unlike what her parents probably told her, she was nothing special either. Teegan had a fan base that would probably dispute that claim, but it was valid in Juliet's mind, at least. She felt like verbalizing that, but didn't want to linger on that topic too much, because what Teegan had said was false. Juliet's mother didn't tell her that she was special and perfect, and in fact, a lot of the time, it was the complete opposite. Juliet was sick and tired of hearing from her mother about how when she was her age, she was already married and a mother, and how Juliet needed to get her act together and do something with her life. Teegan's family coming into the picture had only made that worse, because she had to hear over and over about Teegan's next album or Teegan's next tour or about how she 'needed to tune in to the radio station that was interviewing Teegan that morning!!!'. "Good, you better," Juliet shot back, after a slight pause. She would have tried to conjure another insult, but they were soon approaching Hélène and Thomas, and Juliet had to put on a feigned smile. "Sorry it took so long, Mother," she said with an exhalation. "Teegan made us stop like five waiters for champagne on the walk over." She said it in a casual, even happy tone, but her smile transformed into a smirk slightly a she glanced from her mother, to Teegan.

ERIN BRENNAN

Erin wasn't sure what to think of Beau. On one hand, and one that was undeniably true, he was gorgeous. An absolute gift from the heavens, in a physical sense. On the other hand, it was clear that he was no angel. No, he was no angel, and lately, Erin was beginning to think that he was more like a devil than an angel. She didn't like Aaliyah in the slightest bit, so she didn't hate Beau for cheating on her. In fact, that part was somewhat amusing to her. Here Aaliyah was, the Queen Bee of the universe, being all prim and proper and perfect, living the picture perfect life, and she couldn't even keep her fiance from straying. It would have been sad had Erin been friends with her, but that wasn't the case, and instead, she found that aspect of Beau's involvement to be quite delightful. What made her wary of him though, was that he was messing with Brynn while still dating that bitch. Erin knew Brynn. She knew that her friend was more interested in hookups and fun sex than relationships that would tie her down, but she wondered if this hookup was actually going to tie her down, in more bad ways than good. Like Bryn explained, as she rationalized her choice to not drink yet, Aaliyah was a bitch, and you had to watch your back around her. The fact that Beau was standing right here with them, and not by his fiancee's side, made Erin guess that a storm was coming, and though part of her wanted to be there to see it, she also knew that it was less entertaining with a good friend involved. Brynn was strong and could definitely hold her own, but at the very least, this wasn't her home turf. It was Aaliyah's, and the boy in the middle of the mess was more Aaliyah's than anyone else's too.

"I don't think Beau's wife-to-be would appreciate him ditching her party with a couple of girls," Erin answered Brynn's suggestion, but her eyes fell on Beau with a playful, almost challenging expression. She knew to be wary of him, but encouraging him to fuck up his relationship with Aaliyah more couldn't hurt, could it? "But at the same time, you do only have a few more months to play the bachelor card before you're officially tied down, Mr. Oakman. I'm game. I can get the number for the charter helicopter pilot that Juliet uses to fly out here so we don't have to deal with all of the traffic, if we want to head back to the city. Otherwise, there's about a billion bars around here so you can start getting some drinks in you," she said, adding in a slight elbow to Brynn's side at the last part. "Oh, and I'll let Teegan know too," she continued, upon seeing Teegan's text, that she replied to with, "Brynn and I wanna ditch this ;). Come with us!"
