Family:
Jordan Brooks || Father || Alive
Liam gets along very well with his father, in fact he's the only family member he ever has gotten along with so well. Liam has always been there for his father, just like he has and always will be for his friends. Not only does Liam call Jordan his father, but he is also a best friend.

Miranda Brooks || Mother || Deceased
Liam's mother passed away in July due to cancer. He was never all that close to his mother, but he did love her and it has taken a huge toll on his home life. His father went down into the slumps, causing Liam to pick up all the pieces.

Home Life:
Liam was born to a loving couple, though the two of them had him when his parents were only teenagers. Regardless they brought Liam up to be a respectful, yet awkward man. While growing up he was never the most popular in school and that never seemed to matter to him. In fact, he was actually one of the smartest in his class. This is what allowed him to be welcomed into St. Jude's. If it weren't for his academics, he wouldn't have attended the school and met all of his great friends and even some enemies, though let's not get into that.

When Liam was ten years old, his mother was diagnosed with cancer and has fought hard for the next seven years. But the summer of his senior year, she passed away. This caused the Brooks household to begin to crumble. Liam's father eventually quit his job, began picking up on drinking, and has also been known to sleep with women he met in the bars. Because of this, Liam ended up getting a part-time job in order to pick up on his father's slack.

Academic Career:
Liam's academics got him into St. Jude's. When he first started his grades has always been great but once his mother passed away, they slowly began to slip because of having to deal with his new responsibilities at home. He no longer had as much time to focus on his studies.

Future Plans:
Liam hopes to go to college after graduating, though he hasn't exactly made up his mind on where yet. But he has also taken a huge interest in one day becoming a comedian. Liam has always enjoyed making people laugh and smile, so he decided he mind as well try to make a career at it.

Personality:
Awkward: Liam has always been classified as an awkward person because of the fact that he either has a hard time maintaining an interesting conversation or starts talking about things nobody cares about.

Random: During awkward silences or moments when he is bored, he'll start saying or doing something out of the blue just to lighten the mood.

Caring: Liam has always been one of the most caring guys around. Whenever his friends or family needs help, he is always there to have their back, no matter what the circumstances.

Independent: Within the short couple months since his mother's passing he has learned to be a lot more independent than he ever was. He began relying on no one but himself in order to get things done and taken care of.

Stubborn: Liam has not once ever decided to change who he is or change his opinion on things he believes. If he ever does, it would be a miracle.

Apologetic: Has been known to say sorry a lot, even in situations where nothing was ever his fault or a sorry was needed.

Hobbies:
Skateboarding: Whenever he is stressed, angered, upset, etc. he tends to take to his skateboard and drift around town in order to calm himself down or think.

Video Games: Playing video games brings him out of his reality and allows him to jump into a life where he has nothing to worry about. It's also a great pass time.

Telling Jokes: Liam has always enjoyed putting smiles on people's faces.

Bad Habits:
Cracks his knuckles: Whenever bored he tends to crack his knuckles in order to give himself something to do.

Talks with his mouth full: On numerous occasions he has been known to talk with his mouth full. Most of the time he doesn't realize he's doing it but whenever it's pointed out, he just shrugs it off.

Leaves his wallet/keys in random places: Liam has always been known to do these things ever since he received his wallet and keys. He doesn't do it purposely but when he does, he tends to forget where he placed them at times.

Likes:
Comedy: He is always saying or doing something that will make people laugh and enjoys watching comedy himself. His favorite comedian of all time is and always will be Kevin Hart.

Night: The night time has always been his favorite part of the day. Mainly because it's quiet, and much more beautiful at night.

Fire: Liam has been known to randomly set things on fire, but he has enough control over himself to make sure he doesn't set anything important on fire or hurt anyone.

Dislikes:
Fakes: It bugs him when people try to fit it by pretending to be someone they're not. He'd rather get to know someone for who they are and not by someone they portray.

Crowds: Liam hates being in huge crowds, mainly because he tends to feel a bit paranoid. He never seemed to understand where this came from, but it's just something he has dealt with ever since he was a small child.

It was September 3rd, a Thursday, and the first official day of school at St. Jude's, and its sister school, Constance Billard. The day before had been orientation day, a day that was mostly scheduled for freshman, but technically required for all students. Most juniors and seniors were finished with orientation day by noon, or so, after sitting through short introductions to each of their classes, while following that, the freshman had to sit through a presentation about their school, that always seemed to drag on. Hunter could still remember how he had nearly fallen asleep during his freshman year presentation. Not even the jitters and excitement of attending a new school could keep him from quickly growing uninterested when the dean of students took the stage and began to lecture on and on about St. Jude's history. It got to a point where most kids actually preferred the real first day of school, even though that entailed doing actual work and assignments, over orientation day. It was easier to appreciate the first day of school though, when the week started on a Thursday, and after that day of classes, and Friday's, the students were treated to a long holiday weekend, thanks to Labor Day. Even if you weren't one of the students invited to Sydney Persson's annual Labor Day white party in the Hamptons, Labor Day was likely something you looked forward to. If you didn't have an event to attend, at least it was like you were given one extra day to finish up any missed summer plans. Hunter was one of those students who did have Sydney's party to look forward to on Sunday, but additionally, he was planning to throw a big, impromptu party on Friday night. Like most of Hunter's parties, it wouldn't be anything official, like what Sydney would be hosting over the weekend. There wouldn't be any fancy decorations or little finger sandwiches, or wait staff there to keep guests happy. Hunter would simply wait until his parents left for their own Hamptons weekend, have his friends haul the kegs up to his apartment, bring in the bottles, and maybe some weed or party drugs, if anyone wanted, and then in would come all of his friends and guests. It wouldn't be anything fancy, but in a world where everything had to be fancy to be socially acceptable, sometimes it was nice to act like normal high school kids, just trying to get away with a house party... even if that "house" the party was being thrown in wasn't some shabby house in the suburbs, but a penthouse apartment in the Upper East Side.

Right now, Hunter knew that he needed to put the focus of his party on the back burner, for the time being. He had an hour, or so, until he needed to leave for school, and he had only just rolled out of bed. Before hopping into the shower, he sent out a few text messages to some friends. Though he had seen most of his guy friends the day before at orientation, he hadn't stuck around for long enough to socialize with any of the Constance Billard girls, so he texted a few of them, as well as Liam Koch.

To: Liam
Gonna stop for a BLT on the way. Want me to bring u anything or you good?

To: Lani, Adeline, Sydney
Keep your schedule clear for Friday, ladies

To: Ness
So... since you came to my final party of last year, I expect to see you at my first of this year, on Friday. No excuses ;)

Anissa sat there in silence just scrolling through the social media on her phone as she ate her breakfast on the steps. Just minutes after sending Adeline a text, the female responded. She smiled down at her phone and decided not to respond. After all, she would be able to catch up with her after they saw each other. So much has happened over the summer, of course most of it she would keep to herself because she wasn't about to confess her relations with Liam to Sydney's best friend.

Just as she swallowed a sip from her coffee, she felt hands wrap around her waist, causing her to jump a bit and smiled when she realized who it was. "Morning," Liam greeted with a kiss upon her cheek. "Fancy seeing you here this early. Sleep okay?" Anissa laughed a bit and rolled her eyes playfully, "Yeah, I suppose I slept well," she responded before going silent for a brief moment. Anissa stood to her feet and closed in a bit of the space between them before letting out a whisper that only Liam would be able to hear. "Aren't you worried Sydney might see us like this?

Although she kind of hoped Sydney would see them so that Anissa could have Liam as officially her's, she wasn't all that interested in the drama and very difficult situations headed her way. Now, Anissa wouldn't have been thinking about it if she heard about the break up between the two of them, but currently she was clueless on the matter. "Now don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying that you're here. I'm just worried about the drama that could soon follow," the brunette admitted truthfully. Although she was a bit fearful for herself, she was more worried about Sydney's wrath towards Liam if she ever found out about the two of them. Things could definitely turn out pretty horribly if this situation wasn't taken care of gently.

LJ hopped out of bed later than usual without a care in the world. Usually he was up and already at school, looking around for Kateri. Once he finished his morning routine, he pulled his clothing on, reached for his wallet and darted out the door, giving his morning greetings to his parents as they stood in the kitchen discussing their plans for the day. LJ stepped out onto the sidewalk and immediately began heading down the sidewalk towards Kateri's house. He wanted to make sure she was doing alright and is up for school. Any time her father isn't around he always tries his best to be there for Kat. Besides, someone has to be, why not him?

It didn't take him very long to arrive at the Eshkan residence because she only lived a couple blocks away. Once he did he stepped up to the door, knocked, and let himself in as he called out to her. "Kat, It's LJ," he stated as he closed the door behind him and stepped into the kitchen and reached for a bottled water from the refrigerator. LJ then proceeded to follow the hallways towards the female's room. He noticed the door was closed, so he decided it would be a good idea to knock because he wasn't sure if she was dressed or not. "Are you decent?" he called from behind the bedroom door.

Although, just like any other guy in the world he wouldn't mind seeing her naked, he just wasn't that kind of guy. He respected women and never once purposely did anything to hurt them or make them feel uncomfortable. If he ever did, he wouldn't be able to live with himself. So instead he tries to keep in mind that he doesn't want to turn out to be like his uncle. His uncle has always been known as a player, he doesn't care about the feelings of the women he sleeps with and treats like their dirt, and overall, he's just a bad guy. Liam was different, he wasn't going to turn out like that.

Mood: Tired Outfit 1 - Outfit 2 Location: Eshkan Residence





Oh no, Kateri wasn't up and early this morning. Far from it actually. She was currently sunken down into her bed, the morning light pouring into her bedroom. The orientation in her opinion was tiring as always. Right when she got home, she knocked out onto her covers. Yet another year was ahead of her, and luckily her last. She was sure her brother and sister already went off to work, and her dad was on a business trip at the moment. It was just her at home. After giving herself a few more minutes of sleep, a familiar knock rang through the house, followed by the opening of a door. Kat slowly opened her eyes and sat up. She looked at her alarm clock, seeing how she should've been up by now. "Oh sh-!" Liam's voice cut off the statement.

"Kat, it's LJ," She heard footsteps approach her bedroom door. "Are you decent?" he called. Kat chuckled. She should've known LJ would be checking up on her this morning. "If in my pajamas counts as 'decent' then yeah, I'm straight." Kat stood up and walked towards the door. She didn't care what she was wearing, at least she was wearing something, even if it was just socks, a t-shirt, and a pair of shorts. She opened the door. "Hey. So yeah, I kinda slept in so you're gonna have to wait. Sorry 'bout that." Kat smiled apologetically before closing the door again. She knew LJ wouldn't barge in, so she didn't bother locking it. She proceeded to gather an outfit, and changed into it, fixing her hair and putting a black bow at the back of her head..

She walked back up to the door, opening it. "Okay, I'm ready. Are we late? Also, how do I look?" Kateri waited for a response from LJ, as she spinned so he could see the whole outfit. Honestly, Kat was really excited to start another year. She just wanted to avoid all the drama that is already set in stone.

Anissa knew Liam was right. No matter how hard she tried to stay out of Sydney's bad side, things were going to eventually tumble in that direction no matter how long she tried to hide the fact that she had this thing with Liam. The brunette smiled a bit and nodded her head at his words as he comforted her. He was always good at making her feel better about anything, always placed a smile on her face. That was one thing she always liked about him. Even though he tended to show off more of a tough exterior, she knew he had a heart.

"You're right. I should probably just calm down. If Sydney is going to find out, she will no matter how careful we try to be. So why sweat it, right?" the female responded before placing a small kiss upon his cheek before reaching for her phone from her purse, finding that she received a text from Nova. She read the words and got to work responding.

To Nova
Alright, I'll catch up with you then. c:

Anissa sent the message and returned her attention back to Liam. "So did your parents ever find out about what you were really doing over the break?" she questioned, hoping that they hadn't. Of course she knew that once her parents opened their mouths, things would immediately be known and thrown out of proportion. But even though they didn't leave any room for anything to be made bigger than it seemed, Anissa wasn't ready for their parents to use them as a story for the media again. That's all they ever seemed to do. Whether they were friends or some sort of hook up, if they found out anything about their situation, it would be plastered all over the place for the entire world to see.

LJ smiled a bit when he heard the voice on the opposite side of the door and glanced over at her in her pajamas when she opened the door. Of course he had a feeling he would most likely have to wait on her to get dressed. Kat always did seem to have her own way of doing things and LJ never seemed to have any objections to it. He loved her free spirit, it made her more interesting than any of the other girls he has ever met in his life. Most of them always seem to care about what everyone thought about them, how they looked, etc. Kat was different. He liked different. He liked her.

LJ leaned against the wall in the hallway as he began to wait on Kat to get dressed and ready to go. Surprisingly it didn't take as long as he thought it was. She was opening the door about fifteen minutes later, asking him how she looked. This caused the male to look the female up and down and gave a huge grin. "You look great, Kat," he responded telling the truth. "And we won't be late if we leave now. We'll get to school just a couple minutes before it starts," he added.

LJ offered his arm, allowing her to wrap her's around it just as they always seem to do when they walk around town together. It was just some habit they gained throughout the years of their close friendship. "So, are you ready for senior year?" he questioned as he began walking towards the brother and sister schools. If one thing was for sure, he was ready for the year just because it was the last, but he was definitely not ready for all the drama that was going to be surfing through the halls this year.

Every year the drama always seemed to get worse and worse the longer everyone began to get to know each other. Rumors, ugly truths, they all were going to surface this year, he just knew it. LJ just hoped he would be able to stay away from it or at least most of it. Even though he found entertainment of watching all of the drama unfold before his eyes, he wasn't all that interested in becoming apart of it. It just wasn't who he was.
