Jada Diamond Johnson

Nickname
J

Nationality
USA

Ethnicity
African American

Date of Birth
September 1st

Age
18


Intimate Personal Information
ImageImage
Image
Sexual Orientation
Heterosexual

Relationship History
"Child, let me tell you right now, relationships are overrated at our age! Please, I was one of those dumb girls when I was sixteen, thinking I was dating the man who'd end up being my husband and baby daddy, and boy, was I wrong. Maybe him cheating on me with my cousin was a big reason why I'm so turned off from the idea of investing myself in that shit anymore, but we're young, and I'm just trying to have fun right now!"

Current Relationship Status
Single

Virgin?
No


Physical Appearance
Image
Image

Skin Tone
Brown

Height
5'6

Weight
130 lbs

Hair
She prides herself in taking care of her raven colored hair, and she hates overusing products, but her hair is naturally difficult, so she does have to use a relaxer every now and then to keep it at the artificially straight look that she likes. She's not ashamed of her curls, but it's simply more manageable in this state.

Eyes
Brown

Tattoos and Piercings
Her ears are pierced, and her nose is pierced. She has five tattoos: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Fashion Sense
You can describe J's style in a lot of different ways... edgy, chic, urban, daring, classy... it just depends on the day and the mood. She likes to make a statement, isn't afraid to show skin, and just dresses with her own comfort and likes in mind.

Overall Attractiveness
Look, this is the real world, so her level of attractiveness depends on who you ask. In a world where European features automatically make you more conventionally attractive that the most lusted over dark skin girl, girls like J are already put at a disadvantage. To those who look beyond that, she's a very attractive girl, probably scoring an 8 or 9 out of 10 on the hot scale. She has a great body, a pretty face, and a sense of fashion that's always on point.


Disposition
Image
Image
Good Personality Traits
Loyal, Intelligent, Determined, Generous, Caring

Bad Personality Traits
Vindictive, Intimidating, Guarded, Sensitive, Defensive

Personality
Confident. It's the word that Jada would be most likely to use if she was asked to describe herself in one word. She is confident, there's no doubting that. It's not a show, not something rooted in securities, and not something that's really cockiness in disguise. No, J is one of the few teenagers out there, who for the most part, is comfortable in her own skin. She went through that phase of feeling awkward, praying she was light skinned, hating her body and herself in general, when she was in middle school, so it's not like she was exempt from it. Today, she feels like she is who she is, and if you don't like it, you don't need to talk to her. She gets good grades, has friends, has goals, and knows that she's going to achieve them. She doesn't care about your opinion, at least if you aren't someone who's in her close group of friends.

With her friends, J is a softer version of herself. She's still lively and fun, someone that you just can't have a bad time partying with, but she is far less intimidating. Her guards aren't up, which means that she isn't on the defensive end, always trying to analyze people's comments, their tones, their looks. When she's in that mood, she can be hard to be around, because you just know that you're not getting anywhere with her. If she feels at all threatened or vulnerable, those walls will shoot up as a mechanism of self-defense. She doesn't want anyone to hurt her true feelings, so she'll lock those away and go on the attack. Go ahead and call her an angry black woman, but it's not true. She's not angry and defensive all of the time, but being in a school that's predominantly white, and predominantly wealthy and entitled, with many having a mindset that a black family doesn't belong in Beverly Hills, you can't blame her for being like that with peers she doesn't know very well. She lets people in, but just not that easily.

Strengths
She's a strong public speaker and she's very driven. She can hold her liquor well, and is the kind of person who, even when extremely intoxicated, is still responsible enough to get home in one piece.

Weaknesses
She struggles with letting things go. She's definitely one to hold a grudge, and if you screw her over once, she will find it very hard to trust you again. Other than her personality weaknesses, she has such a weakness for junk food, and always stays up way too late for her own good.


Goals
ImageShort Term Goals
Graduate!!!

Long Term Goals
She thinks that she wants to go into the movie industry, somehow. Be it actually acting, or the behind the scenes stuff of producing and directing, she's not quite sure yet.

Aspirations
She's not one of those people who are super passionate about a certain hobby or talent, but if nothing else, she knows she wants to be happy. She never wants to feel stuck in some dead end job or relationship.


Childhood
Image
ImageImage
ImageImage
Hometown
Beverly Hills, California

Upbringing
Jada is the second and youngest child of Robert L. Johnson and Sheila Crump Johnson. Sheila is an American businesswoman, co-founder of BET, CEO of Salamander Hotels and Resorts, and the first black American female billionaire. Robert Louis Johnson is an American businessman, media magnate, executive, philanthropist and investor, and with his wife, also co-founder BET. Aside from Jada, the couple have one son together, Brett, who's twenty six years old. In 2002, when J was only five years old, her parents divorced. Her mother moved out of the family's Beverly Hills house, and Jada remained there with her father and brother. Their mother ended up moving to New York, and the only reason why she didn't take the kids with her was because she and Robert divorced on good terms. She knew that it was better for the children if they remained in their school and kept those friendships in tact, so she flew back and forth every weekend to be with them. Shelia remarried three years later, and from then on, her parents' relationship seemed to grow weaker and weaker. Robert felt like it was disrespectful for another father figure to be in her and Brett's lives when he was a perfectly good father, so Sheila's new husband was basically banned from being around the kids. Clearly, that made it difficult for the kids to spend much time with their mother as they grew older, but to this day, Jada still feels like she's close with her mother. Their relationship is definitely different from that of a typical mother-daughter who get to see each other everyday, but the Facetime all of the time, and that's fine with her.

While her family dynamics weren't always on point, Jada would say that her childhood was fulfilling. She was always a happy kid, and that only changed slightly when she hit her teenage years. She experienced that typical teenage angst, coupled with realizing that she lived in a community that judged her for her skin color. It was something she was blissfully ignorant to before, as a child, but when she realized that the cool girls all looked a certain way and she didn't... well, it bothered her. It was a phase that eventually led to her ending it as a more confident and comfortable girl, but during it, she felt like hell. Just as she was coming out of that and starting high school, her father seemed to suddenly want to start dating again. It wasn't until her junior year that it got serious, and he proposed to her now stepmother, Faith. This summer, Faith and her two children moved in, and definitely left J wishing she was living with her mom. And unlike a lot of the kids who she goes to school with, no matter how wealthy she is or that she's eighteen now, she's still forced to listen to her parents. There's no moving out for her until she finishes high school.

How has senior been for you thus far?
"It's going as expected. Nothing horrible has happened, but I'm not having the best year of my life either. Just average, but I've gotta step it up a notch now."

What are you most looking forward to this year?
"Getting the fuck outta here, if I'm being really honest with you. You can only go to so many house parties at the same houses before the thrill of being a teenager in Beverly Hills starts to wear off. Prom should be fun, though. I went last year, but there's nothing like going when it's your prom."

How do you feel about Spirit Week? Which is your favorite day?

Group/Clique
She's an Animal, and completely happy with her place on the ladder. She feels so comfortable here that she can't imagine herself anywhere else. It takes a certain type of person to be a nerd, just like it takes a certain type of person to be a prep, or a hipster, or a wannabe... and she's just not any of that. Animals may not be regarded in the best light all of the time, but she doesn't mind it. She'd rather be on the B-list, having fun and living her life, than dealing with all of the stuffy people of the A-list.

Are you a part of any clubs or sports?
None

Location: Hollywood High School β™• Theme Song β™• Mood: Aggravated (Shared)



Normani was unyielding when the group entered the nurse's office first, not even allowing Anthony to take a step inside. He stared her down for only a second before her steely gaze sent him right down the hall. He could lick his wounds like a little bitch when he was at home, but she would be damned if he was allowed to come into the nurse's office. Of course, all under the guise that "We wouldn't want to increase the likelihood of a second round in one of the neatest rooms in the entire building" just to get the nurse to stop giving her a bitch face just for being there. Not that Normani planned to stay the entire time or even walk the couple to the main office. She had class and Chris, despite having class, probably wasn't going to head back so late in the period. She didn't respond to Honey's exclamation about people considering her white trash or even that Olivia would try to get Hailey to replace Honey as a royal. Nobody replaced anyone without the final decision being left to Normani. And it would be a cold day in hell before she EVER allowed some random chick to suddenly be considered one of her besties, which was what all - or at least, the majority - of the Royals were. Best friends to their liege. It just so happened that Normani was the only one who was actually in power and again, she would be damned.

While Normani and Chris lingered by the opening of the nurse's office, Chad sat, feeling more guilty about being in trouble than for what he had done to actually get in trouble, hating the way the alcohol burned again his skin. The corner of his mouth quirked, instinctively, at Honey remarking that they would look badass. He also, shoving away his earlier frustration, did not hesitate in kissing her back regardless of the cough from the nurse. "Really, you two?" She snapped and finally, Honey pulled away so that the older woman could get a better inspection of him. Which only made him groan. "Cat..." he began in the middle of her plea to Normani, but Normani turned to him a sharp stare. "Shut it, Boy Scout." He could only bristle at her for the nickname, a rarity in and of itself unless she said it with a grin. "Just...wanted to tell her not to talk about herself like that," he said quietly, though the other three could hear him clearly. Normani just ignored it and Chris smirked lightly.

"Done," Normani finally said and shared a small look with Chris to which he only nodded. "Keep me posted on what the deliberation is and don't forget, beach party tomorrow." Hugging her bestie quickly, Normani finally tossed a gentle smile Chad's way. "Try not to take on any more missions, Batman. You don't have your trusty sidekick anymore." Finished with her partings, Normani headed back to class, but not without asking for a pass from the nurse. Chris nodded to Honey tensely, forgetting all about his typical flirtatious remarks in favor of turning to his own best friend. "Don't worry about a thing, Chad. We'll get it straightened out."



3: 10 || Ninth Period

ImageImage
ImageImage



Location: Hollywood High School: Cafeteria β™• Theme Song β™• Mood: Devious



By the time the senior lunch period came around, most students were ready to go home. Particularly Normani who was already done with the excitement of the day. As soon as she made it out of her Physics class with Olivia and the others, she instructed all of her followers to find every hint of footage from the fight and delete them, sending each and every proof to her as a means to confirm that they all had been deleted elsewhere. It took until their lunch period, but it was enough to appease her mind. Once she got from cheer practice (which, for only the third time in her entire all-star cheerleading career that she actually did not want to go), she could place all of the footage on a single flash drive that she could hide unless she found a way to use it against Anthony in the near or later future. If he knew any better, he would make it later. Much, much later. Afterwards, she finalized the tweets and Snaps about her throwing a beach party for tomorrow since that was the next Spirit Week theme, a means of distraction for everyone else. Small moves, but enough to get the - for lack of better terms - "lesser" students to think about something else. However, despite the tame quality to her latest machinations, Normani was not done with Anthony. She made a promise and she was going to bury the situation. But before then, she sent out a few text messages.

To: Danny
Study date 2nite or nah?

To: Honey
Update plz

To: Angel, Camila, Chelsea
Don't forget ur cheer candy duties 2day

To: Liv, Kat
Headin 2 caf now

"I pretty much convinced coach already to bench him for the rest of the semester," Chris explained as they stepped into the cafeteria together. Normani normally made an entrance with her girls and she was going to spot them soon enough, but she had immediately run up on Christian the second she got out of eighth period. "He's pretty much fucked for the year. Coaches can't scout a bench-warmer." Normani was not satisfied. As anyone knew, messing with someone she cared about was one of the biggest mistakes a person could make. She was the one who stayed on top of any and everything. She had more dirt on the student body than a child wearing white tennis shoes on the baseball field did, and that was saying something. Despite her own band of followers, Normani received intel from students just begging to be acknowledged by her, even though she was privy to greeting all of her subjects. And that's what the students were at the moment - subjects. And she had a lesson to teach them - even if it meant making an example out of Anthony McLaughlin.

"Well, I want more," she said quickly, a hand on Christian's chest so that he wouldn't step any further into the line formed where the food was being served. She seemed to take her time in allowing her eyes to rake up Christian's muscled form before meeting his gaze. Which had his palms feeling suddenly more warm than they needed to be. He was nervous. He couldn't tell if Normani actually liked what she saw or was simply mulling over how to destroy him. Somehow, he thought it was both. "What I want is to make sure that the next time a no-neck fucker lays a hand on one of mine, the only thing on his mind is the cold chill of fear for how much more hurt he's gonna be than them." Christian didn't react for a moment, just because he couldn't read Normani. She rarely asked for violence and the other jocks could do so; they've done so. But she has never asked for it before. However, a small smirk flitted across his face as he stared down at his suddenly - though, not unsurprisingly so - sexy ex-girlfriend. "Playing with the dark side, aren't you Mani?" She shouldn't be influencing his flirtation, but that didn't stop Normani from discreetly playing with the lapels of Christian's jacket before allowing those same slender fingers to trail up his firm, covered chest. She paid no mind to the classmate nearby who had to gawk at the very obvious seduction. "Oh, baby, this ain't dark. Dark is my making it so that your boy Tony can never walk the halls of HHS ever again," she practically purred, batting her thick lashes up at him only for a moment before grinning and leading Christian over to the line.

"But see, he'll walk. I want him to, but only to gain the satisfaction of knowing that for every step he takes down a hallway, there's fear. And he remembers that the next time he steps out of the line I placed him in, there won't be mercy. I protect what is mine - we protect what is ours." It was a bold move, using them as a "we" when she had made it clear that she was not going to call Christian her man nor her King. However, stroking his ego just enough with the same amount of flirtation got the job done because his gorgeous eyes flashed hungrily before his smirk turned into a wolfish grin. "Consider it done." Normani only smiled brightly, ruffled his hair and then leaned up to kiss him on the cheek swiftly. "Thanks, babe." Ready to step away, Normani settled her gaze on the same classmate that eyed them in surprise and offered them the sweetest of smiles as she said, "You might wanna pick up your jaw off the ground, honey. You might choke on all the flies swarming around ya."

Satisfied, Normani eyed the cafeteria for her crew and found Liv and Kat entering the large room. Luckily for her, she was not one of the cheerleaders who had to run the Cheer Candy fundraiser today. They had a schedule and she had already manned it with a few choice cheerleaders yesterday, and would do so again on Friday. So, she had no need to rush over to her girls, though she stole a picture of them in the process of keeping an eye out for her crew. She would post it on Instagram later during the evening and send it to the chronicle for pics of the week. She made it her mission to traipse over to them, the naturally seductive sway in her hips a sight for sore eyes as she finally Kat and Liv. "Let's go put in our final Homecoming Prince and Princess, and then eat outside. Clifton's bringing our orders from Health Nut in five and it actually feels great out there right now. Besides, I've been in this building too long and I'm suffocating."

β˜…Hailey Baldwinβ˜…
Image

Hailey moved into Normani's now vacant seat when they began the lab, because it was a more convenient spot for her to watch and record the data as the experiment progressed. As Ian and Olivia got started, she quickly became distracted with her phone. Though it was on silent, she could see it light up in the pocket of her backpack, and pulled it out discretely as Honey's text came through. Although Lauren had said in front of them all that Honey had been involved in the fight, Hailey really was surprised to read that same thing coming straight from Honey. And that she punched Anthony first, and he punched her back? Even more surprising. Knowing Honey, she shouldn't have been that surprised that the blonde was the one who initiated the fight, because Honey was a fiery girl. It was something that Hailey admired about her, really. She didn't take shit from anyone and could hold her own. Obviously, no one could expect a girl of her size to beat the life out of Anthony, but at the same time, no one would expect him to punch her back. Hailey didn't know him that well, but even the scummiest of guys would usually resist hitting a girl. That crossed the line, and in school nonetheless, where there was no way that they would get away with it. While Hailey imagined that Honey was injured and maybe Chad too, she was honestly more concerned for Anthony. God only knew that his social life was ruined, and though Chad was no Christian or even Anthony in brute strength, he wasn't an Ian either. He had to have taken a few good hits too.

To: Honey
HAHA ILY you are literally too real for this school Honey Perez <3. couples that fight together, stay together, so at least you've got that going your way ;)

Her text to Honey wasn't very compassionate or concerned, but that was how Hailey was. She kept things light, especially since Honey had said she was fine, at least physically. She didn't see it as being wrong, but Hailey couldn't resist sliding her phone across Olivia's desk with Honey's text showing. "This girl is too real," she laughed, as if Olivia would feel just as amused and equally impressed with Honey's actions. "Would you punch someone in the face for Jamie Boy over here if they were being mean?" she asked, looking up at Olivia and then turning to Ian. "I bet Mani would do it for you."


When ninth period rolled around, Hailey was actually feeling more energized than she had been a few periods before. The two cups of coffee she had definitely helped, and the excitement of the fight from earlier had energized her as well. Maybe it related to her Animal personality, but things like that amped her up. If she had been in that class, or even wandering the hallway and managed to hear it, there was no doubt that Hailey would have been one of the kids cheering it on. It was that crowd mentality and just the excitement that got her adrenaline pumping.

After eighth period, she headed to the front of the school and waited for an older friend to drop off her lunch. It was a hot chicken pesto sandwich from a local sandwich shop and before she even opened the bag, her mouth was watering. It smelled amazing and she couldn't wait to devour it, but before she could, she needed to figure out where her friends were. While Katherine was one of her friends, and maybe it was one way, but she would consider Olivia to be too, they weren't her friend group. She wasn't as welcomed at their lunch group table as she would be with her Animal friends, and just remembering how uptight Mani and Liv were earlier reminded her that she didn't want to sit with them anyway. She didn't want to be a Royal.

To: Angel, Jada
Where my girls at?!?! I have the most amazing sandwich and I am not waiting all year for you bitches to respond before I eat it!!

To: Katherine
What ended up happening with Honey? Did she get suspened?

Being drained by ninth period seemed to be a universal feeling among her classmates, but Jada wasn't that easily worn out. She was bored of being in the building, that was for sure, but she wasn't tired or about to crash. She was living on nine hours of sleep and had a cup of coffee to wake her up during first period, so she was feeling fine. While she wasn't the smartest girl in the school, she was intelligent and got through her classes without much struggle. School was a chore, in a sense where she wasn't excited to do it but knew it was necessary, but it wasn't strenuous and rarely made her feel stressed or worn out.

As she headed into the cafeteria, she considered whether or not she even wanted to vote for the homecoming prince and princess. The whole thing just seemed cheesy to her but surprisingly, a lot of kids in the school seemed into it. Maybe it was like the social ladder, where the term Queen could actually be used without it being in a mocking way. Here, people really did follow the rules and regulations that came with the social hierarchy, so it shouldn't have surprised her that much that people actually valued the homecoming titles. She told herself it was only because she wanted to talk to Danielle, but she ended up heading towards the voting table and before she left, had placed her votes in the ballot box, refusing to acknowledge the mocking voice in her head that was saying 'really?!'.

As she turned away from the table, she found Angelina and Hailey sitting at a table across the room. Angelina looked like she was getting ready to get up, while Hailey seemed more settled, but not actually eating yet. "What's good, my ladies?" she smiled, sliding into a seat next to Angelina. "I thought you said you were gonna be stuck with your pep squad today?" she said, glancing at Angel, and then behind them at the fundraising table where some of the other cheerleaders sat. She then turned to Hailey, noticing her bagged food and remembering that she hadn't brought anything to eat today. Unlike a lot of public schools, Hollywood High actually served decent food, but Jada still wasn't going to buy it. If she had made it to ninth period on just snacks, she could wait until the period ended, drive ten minutes to her house, and eat there. "Whatever that is, it smells good," she commented, poking the bag. "I should have ordered and had something delivered, but oh well. We gonna do something after school today?"

The last few classes had been uneventful aside from the fight that drew away Normani. Ian shook his head. He heard the rumors, of course. Some self-entitled brat had insulted Catalina and Chadwick got pissed off. Or Honey got pissed off. He couldn't keep it straight. Whoever did it, the idiot deserved it. If there was one type of person Ian had no sympathy for, it was bullies. High school was awkward as hell and it took Ian some time to gain what confidence he had when dealing with people without neanderthals making it harder.

With that thought and tray in hand, he went to buy tickets for homecoming and, inevitably, vote for the king and queen. As he walked to the voting table to submit his vote and buy his tickets. He did not know why he was buying two tickets. He hoped to find a date for the dance, he really did, but he didn't know who would actually go with him. He was hardly in demand in a school with males who could afford limousines, private coaches, and brand new clothes that they would only wear for one night. As he folded his ballots, he saw Jada and grinned at her. They were friends, oddly enough due to a certain bit of graffiti. It wasn't an incident he wanted to advertise and he was grateful she didn't mention it much. It was something he was glad to have behind him.

"Make sure to vote for Normani and Daniel," he whispered to her, "Daniel would appreciate a rom-com trope happening to him in real life and Normani... Well, I don't think she'd mind."

With that said, he went to find a seat. He wasn't sure she'd want him to sit with her, after all. They were all slaves to the clique system after all.

A clique system that manifested itself in a stray leg and and an epic crash to the ground. He looked up to find food on his shirt, laughter, and his assailant lost in the crowd. Wonderful. He sighed and began to wipe food off himself with a napkin.

"And that's the last of my money too..."

    Angel reached in her backpack for a bag of chips she had snagged a few hours ago that she kept just for lunch just because she refused to take the free aka handout lunch the school was suppose to support for the students who lived in less than perfect conditions in their homes. She listened to Hailey talk about Normani and she had a smug smile growing on her baby doll face. "I really didn't think she was that bad for a while, but I'm starting to see what you mean. That girl is sooo uptight. She takes herself way too seriously," Angel chuckled. "I told you! I told you I knew what I was talking about. Ugh, no one knows how big of a pain in the ass she really is like I do." She stated before going back to her chips still looking for the last bit of their trio, Jada. "I don't want to get you into trouble with the Devil Queen herself though,"

    Angel just rolled her eyes. She honestly didn't give a shit if she got into trouble especially if it was by Whormani. "Go do your thang, Miss Cheerleader. I'll catch up with you later, and hopefully Jada will stop being MIA so we can all do something fun." Angel groaned as she tossed the empty chip bag in her backpack before zipping it up and starting to take her leave. "Fine, but if I end of killing one of them it's on you." She said in a serious tone before slumping the bag on her shoulders. But, right before she was about to leave Jada pulled up a seat. Angel sighed as she sat back down for a moment.

    "What's good, my ladies? I thought you said you were gonna be stuck with your pep squad today?" Angel groaned as she laid her face in her hands. "I do. I just don't want to be surrounded by the minions." She said as lifted her head up and forced herself up. "Text me if you guys want to do something later. Annie said they didn't need my help at the restaurant so, I free today." She bid her close friends good bye before walking over to the table with the two other girls who crossed their arms over the chest. "And just where were you?"

    "Don't worry 'bout it." She said as she sat her stuff down and took a seat. "Fine, but you know who might like to 'worry 'bout it'? Mani."[/color] Angel laughed before rolling her eyes and looking up at Camilla who was still standing. "Do you really think I give a shit? Go head. Tell her. While you're at it tell her, her bestie says hello." Angel talked in complete sarcasm before returning her eyes to the table to help the student who were walking up. She took the cash and put it in the box before handing them their candy. Every once and while she would be whispered that they had voted for her for Homecoming Princess. Something she would have used to be ecstatic about but, now. She didn't really care. Sure, she would like to win just to rub it in the Royals faces but other than that it was just a stupid title to her. But, she surely didn't care for the two other girls scoffs whenever someone said it. "And what's so funny?" Chelsea looked at Angel with her shinning blue eyes with a raised eyebrow. "Do you really think you could win?"

    The Cuban shrugged with the smugest smile as she turned back to the blonde. "Why do you care? What's the matter? Think Mani might have some competition?" Chelsea scoffed. "Puh-lease. You wish." The three girls just started going back and forth with the other in between the times people would come up to buy the candy. And all Angel could think about is reminding herself not end up smack these girls and ending up like Catalina.

Hailey laughed when Angel made a comment about killing one of her fellow cheerleaders. She was going to respond that if she was going to go to jail for murder, she might as well take out someone who was actually an issue, and that neither of those girls were worth it, when Jada showed up. Comically, Jada brought up Angel's cheerleading duties just as she had, and Angel's reaction made her laugh again. She knew Angelina was an amazing dancer and gymnast, but if she hated the girls on the squad so much, she wondered why she participated in it. From what she had heard, it had something to do with the feud between her and Mani that dated back to before Hailey had went to the school, so she didn't ask about it.

"Have fun!" Hailey shouted sarcastically when Angel was a good distance from their table. She turned back to Jada and wrapped her arms dramatically around her bag of food in a protective way. "Sorry, J! This sandwich is feeding one person, and that one person is me. Let's get out of here. Wanna come back to my house? We can get something on the way." Conveniently, she left out the part about asking Katherine to do something this afternoon too, because she knew Jada hated her friend. It wasn't a dislike where she could still tolerate her. No, it was a hatred, and not even Hailey's attempts at trying to make them be friends had done any good. Most of the time, it wasn't a big deal. Hailey had known Jada before this year through mutual friends, but they had only really started hanging out in September. Since then, she only had to worry about the two girls being around each other at major events, and then, there were usually so many people there that they rarely ran into each other. Plus, whenever those things were occurring, Normani was usually there, and she was apparently a more influential mutual friend than Hailey was, because she usually made sure neither girl lashed out at the other... which usually meant making sure that Jada didn't lash out at Katherine.

She stood up to leave with Jada, but heard a crash behind her and spun around to find Ian Butler on the floor a few feet away. A crowd of jocks and Animals stood around him laughing, before dispersing a moment later when they probably thought they saw a teacher coming by or something. "Daaaaamn, that sucks," she commented, looking at Jada with a bit of shock in her face. There were definitely mean kids in this school, but even as a B-lister, she didn't have to deal them, really. This scene seemed like one of those ones you would see in a movie about a typical high school, and it had her looking towards Jada, as if she would know what the proper thing to do was. She wasn't good friends with Ian, but she liked him. She just didn't know if that was supposed to be enough to make her go over there and help him.

Jada nodded to Angel when she requested that they text her later, because she would most likely be free, but her content smile turned upwards into a smirk when Hailey obnoxiously called after Angel to have fun, when they all knew she'd spend the next hour doing the opposite of that. "Yes! Gooooo Devils!" Jada followed it up with obnoxiously. This was why she loved her girls. Even when one of them was irritated, like Angel, the other two could still have fun and make light of it. Sometimes they were serious friends, but a lot of the time, they didn't need to gather around in a circle and talk about their problems and try to coach Angel on how to get through the period. They just made light of it and had fun, and that was what Jada was best at. She wished that Angelina could have stayed with them, especially when Hailey suggested they leave campus, but it seemed like she really did want to be a cheerleader this year, for if she hadn't wanted to so badly, she would have quit. Or stabbed Normani and quit. Either/or.

"Rude bitch," J commented in mock offense when she was focused back on Hailey. "I'm pretty sure you drank 99% of my bottle of Fireball on Friday, and I can't even get a bite out of your sandwich that's probably cold by now. I see how it is!" she continued with a scoff. Her words were sincere, but the attitude that came with it was playful, and she allowed a smile onto her face as she got up. Like Hailey, though, she didn't get far from the table before a crash behind them had Jada instinctively turning around, and she spotted Ian on the floor with his tray of food all over the place. Normally, Jada wouldn't have given a kid on the floor a second glance. She didn't like to tarnish her own clique's name by saying that sometimes, some of the Animals could get too out of hand and do something maliciously for a laugh, but it was true. However, the same was true for some of the A-listers, more frequently the jocks, who thought that putting other males down somehow proved that they, themselves, were masculine. Either way, she didn't want to see if it was one of her friends who had been the aggressor in the bullying, because she hated bullying. For a lot of her childhood, she was the victim of it, and though it was never physical or nearly as humiliating as being tripped onto the cafeteria floor with a plate full of food, it still traumatized her. It was something that she tried to keep in the past though, so she tried not to let that side of her get in the way of being an Animal, or get in the way of other people living their lives. However, Ian was her friend. An unlikely friend, and maybe not her closet friend, but a friend nonetheless. "Give me a sec," she said, barely glancing over at Hailey before hurrying to Ian's side as he stood up. "You alright?" she asked, bending over to pick up the now empty tray and setting it on an empty table beside them. "If I saw who did it, I'd go Hulk Honey on them, but I didn't see," she teased, hoping to lighten the mood.

Ian gratefully accepted Jada's attempts to diffuse the situation. It was weird to have an Animal as a friend, but he didn't mind at all. He and Jada were different, but that was okay. He grinned at her sat down next to her, still wiping the food off of him. It wasn't that bad, but it was still uncomfortable. It was a good thing he dressed in layers, he thought as he removed his plaid shirt to reveal a simple t-shirt, one that wouldn't look out of place on a non-nerd.

"I'm fine, and I'd pay to see that. Hell, I could probably get Daniel to add a soundtrack to it if I recorded it," he jested with a shrug. He eyed her food longingly just for a second, but he quickly turned his gaze away. He could wait until he got home to eat, after all.

"So, any plans for after school?" he asked, hoping to change the topic.

It was good to see that Ian could still be playful after being publicly humiliated. It probably spoke to how normal it was for him, which wasn't a good thing, but it also showed that he was resilient, and Jada had to appreciate that. "Eh, nothing major. Hailey and I might do something, and maybe Angelina too. I didn't bring lunch today so I'm probably going to go pick something up with Hailey now," she shrugged. She didn't have any set plans with the girls, but she liked it better that way. After a day of school, they didn't need to have some stringent plan to adhere too. It was much more fun to be able to relax by the pool, go shopping or get smoothies, without being tied down to anything. That was always how her girls were anyway - easy. It didn't take thousand day spa trips to keep them happy. "What about you? Anything fun on the agenda?" she continued, sitting down briefly but standing up when she remembered that Hailey was waiting on her. Jada knew that Ian wasn't popular, but she didn't think of him as being friendless either, so extending an invitation to him didn't even cross her might. Not only did she assume he would have plans, but she didn't think he would be compatible with her girl friends either.

As she glanced over her shoulder to where she had last seen Hailey, she noticed the girl was no longer there. She didn't want to just abandon Ian, but she also was hungry and was eager to get that lunch she had been planning on picking up. "If you want, you can grab food with us wherever we go and I can drop you at home!" she offered.

To: Hailey

After a moment, it was clear that Jada had the situation under control, so Hailey didn't understand why her friend continued to linger. She knew that Jada and Ian were friendly. Sometimes she'd catch them talking in the hallway or waving to each other in the parking lot, but she wouldn't have thought that they were that good of friends where her friend would want to stay on campus any longer, just to talk to him when he was clearly okay. Hailey wasn't a mean girl, and she wasn't actually against this friendship, so she wasn't going to storm into the conversation and demand that Jada stop talking to him. In fact, if she had anything to say to Ian, or had more energy than she did at the moment, she would have joined in and told him how messed up she thought it was for whoever tripped him to do that. She wasn't in that mood, though, so, without bothering to actually move into hearing-distance to J, she said, "I'll meet you outside," and left the cafeteria after giving Angel one final wave.

From the cafeteria, she headed down the main hall, and finally out to the courtyard. Some of the tables a few yards away were occupied with seniors enjoying their lunch, but Hailey wasn't going to wait there either. Jada had driven her to school that morning, so she was headed for the parking lot where she knew the girl's Range Rover was parked, but on the way she spotted Katherine, and that was a friend worth stopping for. "Hola Kitty Kat," she grinned as she approached her friend, giving the girl a slight nudge upon arrival. "Someone doesn't look happy. That math test kick your ass like you thought it would?" she inquired playfully, hoping that was all that was bothering her friend. "Drinks and some California sun will make you feel better. Guarantee it. You cool if one or two of my friends come along?" She didn't think that she was doing anything specifically wrong by not naming who that friend was exactly.

To: Jada
near the parking lot!

Twin Day Outfit β™• Location: Hollywood High School: Cafeteria β™• Theme Song β™• Mood: Ebullient



Even if Katherine had glared at her, which she was very smart in not doing, Normani did not pay the brunette a mind. In the time it took Katherine to grab her bag and storm away much like a tiny Katherine would have done in a fit that her nanny didn't want to give her her every second of the hour, Normani had taken a few more bites of her salad, still staring expectantly at Liv. Hell, the way she looked at Liv suggested that she had not even - in the slightest - just snapped at one of her best friends with the rage of a cat in heat. Or at least a more ferocious being. The point is that Normani did not offer Katherine a reaction and the only time an emotion appeared on her face again was when Liv laughed, causing the dark-skinned beauty to grin sheepishly with her lips wrapped around her straw.

"They don't call me a bipolar bitch for nothing," she remarked nonchalantly only a beat later, idly brushing her fork over what was left in her container. "Also, I can't help that your friend thinks she's an exception to the rules. Don't talk about my friends and I won't tear your ass to shreds. She'll get over it within the next hour." Normani was not concerned with Katherine's mood. In fact, the brunette could go the entire evening without speaking to her and Normani wouldn't feel a thing. Not that she didn't normally feel slightly guilty when she knew she hurt Katherine's feelings, but she couldn't feel much sympathy at the moment. She did not say anything horrible about Katherine at all. It was about Hailey. So, if the brunette wanted to be in her feelings, that was fine with Normani. By the time she got some of the delicious Italian dinner that would be awaiting her after cheer practice and finally got into the sweats she liked wearing, Normani wouldn't be thinking of anyone or anything. Besides, if Liv had to deal with any of Katherine's lasting bitch-fests, it would be Liv's own fault. She could always shut shit down like she did Jameson earlier.

Back to the present, Normani had to roll her eyes at the sarcastic way Olivia brought Daniel into the conversation, resting her elbows onto the table so that she could rest her chin in her hands leisurely. "While I will ignore the part where you didn't acknowledge the crux of my asking about James, I will say that I don't know about Danny right now." She answered honestly, with a small smirk on her lips that remained only briefly. "To be quite honest, I don't know if this is just some phase for me and I'll get over...whatever this is for Daniel...or..." Normani shook her head before painting on a smile, finally acknowledging her phone and the countless texts she had received, not just from her friends but from several informants. "Either way, I cannot wait until I figure out my dress. Won't matter who the hell I show up with if my dress ain't on point."

Hunter was smart, there was denying that, but this year, his confidence in that had been put to the test. It didn't help that upon starting school in the fall, he did his best to socialize only in school, and only with the nerds, who seemed to be one of the less exclusive groups in the school. He knew it meant something to his level of intelligence that they accepted him, but as a kid who went to only poorly funded public schools for his life, his sense of his own intelligence was apparently incorrectly heightened. Compared to some of these Beverly Hills kids, who had private tutors teaching them second and third languages before they were enrolled in kindergarten, Hunter felt like he had to work twice as hard to get the great grades he got without breaking a sweat at home. Luckily for him, he had the time to put into studying now that he was in California. Unlike in Boston, here he didn't have any close friends who wanted to spend their nights trying to get into bars underage or chugging cheap beers at a house party. It was his own choice, really. He wanted to remain as un-involved as possible in Hollywood High School's social scene, or at least that had been the plan when he found out he was moving here. Keep his head in the books, get good grades first quarter, get into Boston University on a scholarship and focus this year, on making sure that he would be set for the rest of his life.

It had been a good plan for the first couple of months of school, and he had done well at convincing himself that he was okay with not engaging in any of the typical parties and fun that seniors were expected to partake in during their senior year. For some reason, Spirit Week was making him feel differently on it. Maybe it was Twin Day most of all, because it just reminded him that he didn't have any close friends here, and it kind of sucked. His old school didn't have a Twin Day or Spirit Week, but it just reminded him that he was missing out on his school's traditions, and that he didn't fit in with his new schools traditions. Now, he felt like even if he wanted to make better friends, it was too late. Coming in during senior year felt like it was too late to begin with, to make any great friends, but now, months into the year, when he had already willingly accepted a spot as a Nerd... well, getting out of that rut seemed close to impossible.

Since all of the seniors had off of classes during ninth period for lunch, he felt even more isolated in his outfit which was nothing more special than a red and white striped shirt and grey jeans, since he wasn't standing with anyone who matched him. He knew it wasn't that deep, and there were other kids like him who weren't participating, but again, he was feeling unusually self conscious today, and it made him want to get out of the building quicker than it usually did. He passed through the cafeteria only briefly during ninth period with the intention of buying a bottle of water and submitting his Homecoming votes. He did both, first placing votes for Angelina and Taylor in the ballot box. There was no particular reason for why he voted for them over the other candidates. He had seen Angel frequently at his house, hanging out with Jada, but still didn't know her very well. In his math class, he had overheard girls talking about voting for her, so he figured that him voting for her too wouldn't be bizarre. There also weren't many sentimental feelings behind his vote for Taylor. Like Angel, he had also heard someone mention him as a good candidate, and since he really didn't care about who won, Hunter voted for him too.

As he was getting off the lunch line with just his water bottle, he noticed Ian sitting down at a table that Jada had just stood up from. For a few seconds, he hesitated on what to do. He liked Ian, and found the guy to be one of the most welcoming people he had met at Hollywood High. They were definitely nerds in different senses, with Hunter being more of a "pretend" nerd, in the fact that he had kind of forced himself into that mindset this year, when before this year, his only nerd-like trait had been his intelligence. It was different than Ian, who... well, who looked like a nerd and just gave off that vibe. Not like that was a bad thing. Hunter didn't think so, at least. He normally would have approached Ian without a thought, but Jada being present hindered him for a moment. He and Jada weren't enemies. They were on neutral terms, if anything. He thought she was comical and they stayed out of each other's way, mostly, which wasn't hard considering the size of her home, but it was clear to him, at least, that she didn't want him there any more than he wanted to be there. He didn't take it personally but since he already felt like he was intruding on her home life, he decided against approaching her and Ian. He doubted that she would have minded that much, but he didn't want to take any chances, and instead, left the cafeteria and headed out to the parking lot, but not before at least sending Ian a text message.

To: Ian
Hey Ian. Not sure if you're working tonight, but if you're not, I'm going to try to knock out the rest of the week's calculus homework assignments tonight if you're interested in getting it done too.

Ian thought for a moment. He didn't have any plans at the moment. He had already finished most of his homework, but none of his friends were interested in doing anything. He opened his mouth to reply when his phone vibrated against it. Sheepishly, he took it out of his pocket and read Hunter's text.

"Oh, I have calculus to finish with Hunter. I'm not sure if he wants to meet at his and, well, your house or mine. I can eat with you and then meet with Hunter wherever," he told her awkwardly. He wasn't sure how well she and Hunter got along. He wasn't sure how he'd feel if his parents got divorced and one of them remarried, expecting him to see complete strangers as siblings.

"I can follow you. No sense in leaving my car here," he told her before texting his friend.

To: Hunter

No problem. Your place or mine?

Fergus stared at the bouquet of flowers on Trayson's car, attempting to pay attention. Don't get him wrong. Fergus was always happy to help a friend in need, particularly for something like this, but he was notoriously flighty and absentminded. Standing still for anything but meditation or prayer just wasn't in his nature. But, his friend needed him to make sure the flowers stayed in place, so he fidgeted and waited for his friend to lead Raquel to her car.

"Maybe I should have put more thought in asking Maya out... Next time, if it goes well," he promised himself. He hummed absentmindedly.

Hunter slowed his pace as he made his way through the parking lot as he waited for Ian's response. As he walked through, he spotted Fergus standing by a car that was adorned with flowers and a homecoming proposal. Like most of the other students at Hollywood High School, Fergus was one that Hunter was not very familiar with. He knew his face and name, but nothing more than that. Regardless, he didn't think that he looked like the kind of guy who would go all out like that for a girl. If he had known the full story, and knew that it was actually Trayson's proposal for Raquel, it probably still would have surprised him. His old school had homecoming, in the sense that it was the homecoming football game that kickstarted their team's season, but there was no dance associated with it. Kids asked each other to prom in manners like this, but he didn't really know that homecoming was this big of a deal at some high schools. He had to give credit to Fergus, who he thought to be the mastermind behind the flowery display, knowing that whatever girl he was trying to swoon would probably spread her legs following that dance if he kept up this chivalry.

To: Ian
You're welcome at my place if you want. No pressure if you don't feel like getting a head start on the work though. I just suck with procrastinating and am trying to end that side of me this year before college lol. I'm leaving now, so lmk when you get to my place.

Hunter responded to Ian's text, but didn't want to seem like he was pushing for the guy to hangout if he wasn't in the mood. He liked Ian and found him to be one of the easiest people to hang out with out of this school's student body, but Hunter didn't want to seem desperate for socialization.

Normally, he would have waited for his younger sister, Bridget, to finish her classes, so during ninth period, he would have sat in the courtyard doing work or even lowered the seat in his car and slept for the fifty minutes, but earlier that morning, she insisted that she was hanging out with friends after school. It worked for him, since it meant one less ride filled with blaring Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber music, and fifty less minutes on this campus.






Image

Jada didn't see many perks in welcoming a stepmother and two stepsiblings into her home, but maybe Hunter was beginning to prove her wrong. Apparently, he and Ian had made plans to hang out, and that meant that Jada didn't need to feel guilty for leaving Ian, since she wasn't sure that he and Hailey hanging out would be a very comfortable or compatible match. "Oh, don't worry about getting food with us then," she commented with a toss of her hand. "Wouldn't wanna keep you two from getting all smart," she teased. "And our chef's there until seven, so he'll make lunch for you guys if you want. Go, and I'll see you at Mani's party tomorrow if I don't catch you during the day, right?" she continued with a smile, waiting for his response before waving him off.

This party that Normani was throwing was definite going to be a good one. J could feel it. The theme was on point, Mani never disappointed to begin with, and this was one of the parties where the entire school was basically invited. Some parties that the Queen Bee threw were exclusively for her A-list clique (which Jada would tell you she would never want to be seen at anyway, because they had to be the definition of boring). Some were for Mani's friends, which were a mix of the cliques, but basically only A and B listers. These were usually fun, and frequently the same crowd that showed up at parties that the Animals, like herself, threw, minus some of the snobby preps. Sometimes, these parties where there was no guest list, were the best, though. It was such a random mix of people that exciting things were bound to go down. Plus, Jada always got a kick out of seeing some of the goody-two-shoes kids *cough*Raquel*cough* try to have fun without downing some Patron in the process.

To: Hailey
kk omw

It took five minutes for Jada to find Hailey, and point one seconds for her to want to smack Hailey when she saw who she was standing with. Jada wouldn't give Katherine Quinn the importance by saying that she hated her, because she wasn't that important. She was just a pest. Not even a bitch. A brat. A whiny little brat who literally thought every planet in the universe orbited around her, and whenever anyone suggested otherwise, the amount of shock and self-pity she had for herself was equivalent to that of a victim of some crazy, traumatizing natural disaster. And no, Jada wasn't just judging a book by its cover. She had dealt with Katherine a few times, and that was enough to leave her wanting to knock the brunette out. The only reasons she hadn't was because she was Mani's friend, and Jada didn't want to feed into that typical "angry black bitch" reputation she felt like people pinned her as having. It would be too easy.

"You ready?" she simply asked, not even looking at the brunette as she stared at Hailey while twirling her car keys around her finger.

Since Kat seemed to struggle with a lot of subjects, it wasn't unbelievable that she would look so bothered over a math exam. "Ugh, I'm sure you didn't do as bad as you think you did," Hailey tried to reassure her, but it was hard to sound sincere when they both knew that she probably didn't do well either. Though Hailey felt bad that Kat struggled that much with school, she also couldn't find it in her to really feel bad for her. The brunette probably could put in more effort, and more-so, everyone knew that being unintelligent wasn't going to hinder Kat from succeeding in life. Her modelling career was definitely ahead of Hailey's at this point, and she was probably a few legs up in the game over Olivia too. Even if all of that suddenly failed, her dad was loaded, so it wasn't like Kat was looking at living in a cardboard box for the next seventy years if she didn't get an acceptance letter from Harvard. "And I didn't drive, but I think my friend's gonna give us a ride, so you can tell the evil stepmother to return to her fortress," she responded teasingly. Again, she still didn't name that friend because she really did want to hang out with Katherine... and Jada. Could she get the best of both worlds? She doubted it, but she also wasn't going to cancel on one of them to hang out with the other.

Checking her phone, she found a text from Samuel Lexington, reading, "i'm headed to the montage with some people if you and your girls are bored, but let's do dinner tonight. only if angel's free, since you know i'm not about to hang out with you and jada unless my girl's there ;)". Hailey didn't dislike Sam, but he was an ass most of the time. He sat on his high horse and thought he was better than everyone else, especially the Animals, and yet whenever he got drunk, it was them who he was most interested in partying with, because he knew they were the most fun.

For some reason, Sam seemed to actually accept Angelina over the other Animals. Normally, Preps and Animals didn't mesh that well. Both of them enjoyed a good party here and there, but their standards were almost opposites. While the Animals could have an amazing night on just kegs and cheap vodka if that was all they had, the Preps would be offended if someone even thought that they would drink beer from a can. Animals were wild and scandalous, rarely conforming to social standards, while the Preps were the epitome of class and perfection. It was hard to think of it as being true, especially to Hailey who had only known her as an Animal, but Angelina was once a Prep, and Hailey supposed that was where the connection came from. Still, it wasn't like Angel was friends with the majority of the other Preps, or even any A-listers at this point. From what she had heard from Jada, when shit when down with her family, she cut ties with everyone and embraced her Animal side. It was a fall from grace, some said, but Hailey didn't understand why Sam still thought her to be higher than other Animals, like her or Jada, if everyone else apparently shunned Angel now more than an average Animal. It didn't bother her, just made her curious. Sam was a pretty attractive guy, and if she didn't know his posh side, she'd be impressed at the rages he sometimes threw, but it made her wonder if he and Angel had a past. Or maybe a future. It didn't seem like Angel and Christian were going to flourish into anything since Angel refused to speak of it in public, and she and Jada were basically sworn to secrecy when Angel came clean to it about them.

To: Angel
are you and christian going to homecoming or is that still an absolute no? bc sam wants us to do dinner with him tonight but only if you're gonna come :O

She was going to text Jada too to tell her about Sam's less-than-kind invitation, when the girl beat her to it and appeared. And as soon as she did, Hailey could feel the tension between her and Katherine. Why can't everyone be friends?!, she groaned internally as she looked at Jada with a smile, hoping to soften her as she clutched Kat's hand to make sure that the brunette couldn't leave. "We're ready," she said. "Tell someone to bring a bathing suit for you to Kat's house. Let's go there."

Outfit || Location: Normani Devereux's Home || Theme Song || Mood: Optimistic


"I love you...I do. I know...I-I-I know I don't say it often enough, but never doubt that. And never doubt that I don't blame you for earlier - for any of this. I just...you want to be Catalina right now and I just wanna forget that the last few hours just happened. Can we do that?"

That was what Chad had had to say about the situation yesterday and that was honestly how he wanted to leave it for now. While the reasonable and logical human being inside of him understood the importance of having the conversation his girlfriend had been trying to conduct, a rather petulant version of himself - which had taken on the outer visage that Catalina had to confront - was adamant to leave it where it was. Yesterday. Or...well, at the time, it had been earlier in the day yesterday, but now he was definitely not in the mood to confront the events of the day before. No, he wanted to actually enjoy a party. He wanted to drink (and did Chadwick Arsenault drink often? Abso-fucking-lutely not, but he was gonna do it today!) and laugh at some of his classmates (because knowing Chris' goofy ass, he would be the main one trying to belly-dance) trying to belly-dance, maybe even partake in some hookah. Who knew? The point was that no, he did not want to talk. No, he did not want to acknowledge the rage at which he had attacked Tony. That also meant not wanting Honey to change, in any way since he had fallen in love with her for being herself, not because he wanted to eventually change who that person was. Kinda defeated the purpose, if you asked him.

Of course, that meant asking him and he wasn't even answering his own girlfriend, so...shit out of luck going once...twice...sold and totally forgotten.

Which was good for him because soon enough he was parking a little down the street from Normani's home. It shouldn't have been a surprise that after only thirty minutes of her Arabian Nights themed beach party that the party was already all over social media with people posting pics of themselves with Hijabs (which a few of the Muslim and Arabic students had been privy to not doing because of reasons), henna tattoos, hookah vapors all around them, and going on and on about how great the party was. Hell, he could hear the music from where he was helping Honey out of the car. If Normani never made it in the fashion industry, as Chad had told her several times over, she could easily go into event planning because she never held back with a party. Plus, she had chosen a great venue considering there was ample space between her home and others, with her only being connected to the nearby few through the sandy pathway leading from the back of her home down to the beach where a few smaller homes were situated.

Once Honey was out, he linked hands with his girlfriend and made their way closer to the house, bumping fists (totally random, mind you since he could only recognize the guys from a guy classes and definitely not by name) with a few guys and waving at some female classmates. Seeing everyone else go a certain path while others stood around in the beautiful lawn with cups in their hands and conversing, he turned to his girlfriend with a small smile. "Mani's probably still upstairs beautifying herself, or so she would say. Do you want to go wait for her or head down to the beach with everyone else?"

Outfit ⚾ Location: Normani Devereux's Home (Beach) ⚾ Theme Song ⚾ Mood: Entertained



Yes, Christian Hernandez was having a great fucking time. After helping the hostess herself out earlier in the day with overseeing setting up, making sure DJ Morse Code was good and comfortable, and test-tasting (which didn't really need to happen, but both Christian and Mani liked food so this was bound to happen) the absolutely mouth-watering foods, he had really just lounged around at a friend's house in the neighborhood until the party. Lounging meaning that he shot a few hoops, watched a movie or two, and had a bit of a video game session before showering for a second time and getting ready. Which didn't take long since, considering the fact that Christian wasn't a girl that would do the utmost at a beach party, it was a beach party. All he needed was a pair of orange Dan Ward swim shorts, a plain white muscle tee that had been thrown off about fifteen minutes ago, and a pair of Dan Ward sandals that happened to have a bit of wet sand in them at the moment - and Chris was good.

He was even better now that he and a few jocks had successfully thrown a few of the squealing Prep girls (and one of their guys since he wanted to be a prissy little bitch) into the crashing waves, with all of them coming up sputtering and screeching out playful threats. Chris high-tailed it the fuck outta dodge, heading back to one of the lounges so as not to get attacked by pissed off girls who should have remembered that being near water meant actually getting wet. Once there, he smirked at a few girls sitting and gossiping, while pulling out his phone to check on a few of his people.

To: Angel
Don't tell me ur 2 good to come 2 a party now?

To: Chad, Dom, James, Lennox, Sam, Tray
Dudes, this party is 2 live for me 2 c none of u yet

To: Mani

Outfit β™• Location: Normani Devereux's Home (Bedroom) β™• Theme Song β™• Mood: Exuberant



While Normani was more than ready to get to her guests and be amidst the fun and just good energy she had noted from the second people started arriving at four, she had returned to her room with Liv and Kat to actually finish getting ready. She had been adamant earlier that every detail be perfect, even with the fire show that would go on at around half past six in the evening. Just when sunset was happening so that it would be dark enough for the show to actually be entertaining and not just random, and her showing off. Not that she wasn't showing off (since come on, she was fucking amazing! Her showing off was equivalent to a lot of girls doing too damn much, just with her...ya know, doing it better) considering when was the last time Normani had even thrown a party at her own home, let along have all the details she had set up? As promised, she had gotten her girls, along with her loyal followers, manicures and pedicures. Hell, to be nice since they had all helped with setting up and being the first to sample the henna artists, she had allowed them all two glasses of her Pernod Ricard Perrier-JouΓ«t champagne during lunch. And Liv and Kat would be the first to tell you - Normani did not serve such an expensive item just willy-nilly.

So, while everyone else was making their way down the dimly-lit pathway from her home to the beach where large lounges were set up with soft cushions, various draperies of jewel tones, and hookah and music lingering in the air around them, Normani was in her bedroom, fully dressed and putting on the final touches to her attire. Her own henna tattoos had been done earlier. "For the record, you can't even say I didn't warn you this time around about what I was wearing," she decided to toss over her shoulder in the direction of her closet's main entrance where Liv and Kat were still in her bedroom, fixing up the last of her eye makeup. The strapless, aqua-colored bandeau bikini she wore emphasized the absolutely flawless figure she held and a semi-sheer sarong was held comfortable on her curvy hips. Her hair had been finished just after her shower earlier and a gold-tone filigree heart crown head piece sat on her head regally, bringing together the hint of Arabian royalty that Normani was going for. Plus, there was something about wedges (or heels, in general) that had her feeling absolutely flawless. She had even changed her bellybutton ring for the occasion.

"You girls ready? Lauren just told me more people are showing up and there is a Long Island Iced Tea that is just screaming my name at this point," she said, walking out of her very spacious closet to confront her very gorgeous best friends.

    Angel was selling the last of their candy before feeling her phone go off. She turned it over to see who it was from and when she saw it was from Sam. She couldn't help but form a devious smirk on her face as she unlocked her phone to read and reply to the message. Her smirk grew even more when she saw what it said. She and Sam had been trying to sleep together from a while now but, every time something either came up or Angel decided to just tease him before walking away. Mostly to play around and make him want her even more than before. She left him on read as she put her phone back down to sell the last two remaining candies before looking towards the two other girls and standing up with a smirk. "Well, since we're done. Why don't you go ahead a scurry off to your little leader to tell her how great of a job we did. That way I can walk away and meet up with people who actually have personalities other than being carbon copies of Tina Hammersmith from Bring It On Again and Normani herself Have a great rest of your day, you guys." Angel said with a smile before turning away after picking up her purse. Angel walked through the halls with her heels clicking against the floor as she walked to her locker to get her dance bag to take it home for the night. When she made it to the locker room she finally decided to text Sam back.

    To : Sam
    Hmm, I don't know. You know, I don't really have an interest in being surrounded by preps. ;)

    The small girl smirked at her reply before putting her phone away in her purse. She has to admit, Sam was sexy. Really sexy and the idea of sleeping with him was tempting but, what she hated about sleeping with Preps and Royals was that she always left right after no matter what time it was. She hated falling asleep in their bed. But, for the reason you may think. She has no problem sleeping over because she's too lazy or worked out to get up and drive. Hell, she did more than a few times. What she didn't like was falling asleep in some rich guy's big house and waking up probably not remembering how to get out without waking up whoever she was with. She got another message from Hailey as she stopped walking to read it. She raised an eyebrow before chucking at the last bit of the message. She sent the message before walking to her car on the other side of the school to start heading to the mall to find something reasonably priced for the party tomorrow.

    To : Hails
    Just why would I and Christian be going together? And I'm for it if some else pays or I just stick to the bread and a water. lol.


    Wednesday, October 2, 2015 || 4:10 PM

    Angelina was on her way to meet up with her girls. She had decided to get ready at her own house but agreed to meet up with the two. Like stated before, she just had a weird thing about being in upper class houses. Even those of her best friends. Sure, she would go every once and a while but for the most part she would try to just stay where she felt comfortable which included her house or with her girls in their rooms without walking around their houses.

    Angel looked at her ruby red two piece with a smirk as she turned around to look at all of her curves. Even if she was small, the small Animal did have a body. Maybe it was genetics, maybe it was from all the sports, she didn't know. All that mattered to her is that she has a nice ass. She slipped on her small wedges and tightened the gold buckles before adding her jewelry that she... 'borrowed' from her foster mothers. She carefully added the gold necklace, cuff, and headband with a smile. She fixed her long curly locks to make the look absolutely perfect. She had people to impress today, two of them being Sam and maybe, Christian. Just a little bit. The girl looked around for her black beach dress before finding it under her sister's bed. She rolled her eyes before slipping on and grabbing her beach bag for the day that was filled with everything she needed like a towel and her sun tan lotion.

    She hurried out of the empty house, since everyone else was still at their clubs or working at the restaurant. Angel, again asked for the day off just so she could hang out with her friends at the party. She tossed the bag in her passenger seat before getting in herself and starting the car. But, not before sending a text to a few people. After which she plugged her phone into the car to start her music before driving towards her friend's house.

    Hails and J
    omw over now. Be there soon!

    To : Christian
    Me? Never. What wrong Chris, you bored of you little friends already. ;)

Hailey wasn't surprised when the day before, Jada said "absolutely no" to hanging out with Katherine and she and Kat hung out alone. She knew it was dumb to expect either of them to willingly hang out with each other, but she had her hopes. It might have worked out to her benefit that Jada didn't come though, because Kat ended up explaining to her that she had been "temporarily" mad at Normani for speaking poorly of Hailey. Of course, Katherine spun the story into one where what Mani said wasn't a really big deal because apparently, Kat was over it by that point, but it definitely rubbed Hailey the wrong way. A girl she barely knew was calling her a whore, someone who was only successful for her relationship with Justin Beiber, and being downright nasty to her for no reason? As a mechanism to lift another girl, Honey, up? It bothered her a lot, actually. It wasn't so much so that she was really offended by the words that Mani spoke, because any girl who put herself out there could recall being called a whore by other girls who were jealous. More than anything, it was the fact that she had been trashed for no reason. She had never done anything wrong to Normani, and yet she was going to talk poorly about her just because? Just because she was some self-proclaimed Queen? Bullshit.

When she saw Jada the next morning at school, she confided in her about it, but of course, Jada was also Mani's friend and didn't fully come to Hailey's side like she wanted her to. She claimed that Katherine was a troublemaker and was probably lying completely or at least exaggerating whatever Mani had actually said. She insisted that her girl wasn't petty like that and that if Mani had a real problem with her, she would have heard about it. Hailey trusted Jada, but she trusted Katherine too, and didn't think that Kat had anything to gain by just completely making the story up. Still, Jada insisted that it wasn't a big deal, so after school, she invited her and Angel to her house to get ready. Angel declined, which wasn't surprising, so Hailey spent a few hours with Jada, getting dressed and having their hair and makeup done. Hailey decided to mix red and black as her color scheme, going with a black bikini and a pair of Balmain red leather jeans on top. With the style of the bikini top, and Hailey's desire to look good, a shirt wasn't necessary, and the outfit was finished with a pair of black wedges.

By the time that Angel got to her house, they were already behind schedule to leave for Normani's, since she lived pretty far from the rest of them. "Leave your car and get in, hoe!" Hailey shouted through an open window, but only after reaching into the front of the car where Jada's driver sat, waiting, and slamming on the horn a few times to catch Angel's attention. She waited for their friend to get in before commenting just as energetically on the girl's attire. "Daaaaaaamn, Mami. Someone's looking good. Who're we trying to impress tonight? I see some gooooood sex in your future," she voiced playfully.

During the car ride to Mani's, Hailey explained what Katherine had told her to Angel, since she had already said it to Jada (and she could tell that J didn't want to hear it or play into the drama again). "Sooooo, I feel like tonight, I get to hold the 'I don't wanna be at this bitch's house the most' card. Sorry, babe," she finished the story with. Maybe she didn't have a right to hate Mani more, but at least her dislike for her was more recent. "I'll give the bitch credit though, since I know there's gonna be an open bar here. Plus, I know Rob said he's bringing a little bit of Coke in case we get bored," she added with a grin, referencing a fellow Animal, as she stepped out of the car and followed the girls into Mani's party.

To: Kat
just got here... not sure if i wanna be tho lol

Jada did not, under any circumstance, want to get wrapped into going to Normani's party with her stepbrother and stepsister. She knew it would be suggested, as Bridget had been bothering her all day about it over text. She couldn't even tell you how many times the younger girl had asked if she thought Mani would like her outfit, if she would finally introduce her to Catalina, and if Olivia and Katherine had really walked in New York Fashion Week. Bridget wasn't young enough that her consistent texting and questions about the A-listers could be deemed as cute or endearing to Jada. It was just annoying, and honestly, she didn't want to feed into that unhealthy worshiping of the A-listers. Because really, they were just people, and a lot of them weren't good people in Jada's eyes. Part of that, she felt, was due to their inflated egos, that came from girls like Bridget drooling over them as if they really were something special and important, and that they needed to be bowed down to. There were some A-listers that Jada liked, with the Queen Bee being one of them, but she was much happier as a B-lister, with the kids who she felt were actually real and down to earth. In order to escape her stepmother and step siblings, Jada agreed to meet at Hailey's house to get ready. She thought that Angelina was going to come at some point too, but by the time their cheerleading friend did show up, they were already in the car, ready to leave.

Hailey's energy and just general craziness was hyping Jada up for the night, so she laughed as Hailey taunted Angel through the window, and probably pissed off Jada's driver, who had come to drive them there, in the process. "Mhmm, Christian's 'bout to tap that for the second time," Jada added, before laughing, "And like the first time, nobody's gotta know about it besides your girls." Like Angel, Jada had chosen red as her outfit's color for the evening. She donned a red bikini, with her top just consisting of the bikini top, while she wore a black maxi skirt over her bathing suit bottom, and black heeled sandals on her feet. Since she had no plans on actually putting her bathing suit to use and getting wet, she left her hair down in its unnaturally straight state.

"Lord, not this again," Jada complained when the car started moving, and Hailey started talking about Normani and whatever crap Katherine had fed to her the day before about Mani. Jada didn't know if it was true or not, but she did know that whatever Kat had told Hailey wasn't the full story. Mani could be a bitch, but she wasn't a mean girl where she'd come for people who had done nothing wrong to her, for absolutely no reason. She wasn't a bully (despite what Angel would say on that), and if anything, Jada would have thought that if Mani really hated Hailey to a point where she was going to speak poorly of her for no reason more than it being a conversation filler, she would have heard about it. Jada wasn't a part of Mani's clique, but she spoke to the girl frequently enough where she thought she would know if Hailey was on Angel's level of not getting along with Mani. And she hadn't heard anything about that, so in her mind, she felt like it was just a fabrication from Katherine, who was a drama-starting brat. To prove that she wanted nothing to do with the conversation, she went so far as to tell the driver to turn up the music to a high volume while Hailey explained the story to Angel. If there was anyone who was going to take a stance against Mani, it would be Angel, so Jada's vibes were dwindling as she knew that it would probably fuel Angel's dislike for the Queen Bee even more.

Finally, they got to Mani's house, and Jada nearly jumped out of the car when it stopped. "Girl, it is not even five o'clock. Do not start speaking of cocaine to me any time before one in the morning," Jada said, and at the same time, flashing the pair a warning look. She could get just as crazy, if not crazier, than the two of them some times, but Mani's parties were different for Jada than they probably were for those two, because they really had nothing to lose. At least that was starting now with Hailey, where she didn't like Mani either, and had little respect for the authority she thrusted over the student body. Jada didn't see Mani as being a Queen that she had to bow down to or follow commands from, but she also wasn't about to turn her elegant, cool party into some sketchy motel party. "Let's have fun tonight. Only positive energy, and lots of alcohol, but no coke. We have school tomorrow, and I do want Angel to remember whoever she fucks tonight so she can give us the details tomorrow," she spoke, her tone lightening as she smirked towards Angel.

Outfit ⚾ Location: Normani Devereux's Home (Beach) ⚾ Theme Song ⚾ Mood: Entertained



Christian had to laugh faintly at Angel's quick reply, leaning back against the sofa he was seated upon with a smirk on his face. While it was no secret that despite Mani and Angel's beef that he and the apparently proclaimed Animal princess were friends, the real secret was how close they actually were. More than Normani (who only remembered her for being that one bitch on cheer who would faithfully look at her like she just wanted Mani to claw her eyes out), Chris had seen the sweet girl Angel had been back then. The sweet girl she technically still was, even if she was adamant that she was some kind of badass hardcore partier. And yeah, as he had joked only once or twice before to his boys, he would tap that. Already had...when he was dating Mani.

But of course, nobody wanted to talk about that.

To: Angel
Nah. Just wanted 2 c u

As soon as he had clicked send, Sam slid in right beside him and Chris punched the guy's shoulder lightly. "Fuck you, man," he replied with a grin. "Unlike your ass, don't need a drink to get turnt." While Chris could normally be seen at every party with at least more than two drinks, he wasn't in a rush. Partially because he wanted to make a good impression on Mani who had already expressed a distaste for him when he overdid it. Partially because he wanted to be at least semi-sober when he saw Angel. And no, he was not going to think about how complicated he was making his life. Nope, not at all. "Surprised you didn't bag Tiff earlier. Don't tell me your game is off and the fun's only started, bro? Might think you've lost your game."

Outfit β™• Location: Normani Devereux's Home (Bedroom to Beach) β™• Theme Song β™• Mood: Exuberant



Normani felt the blush rising to her cheeks a millisecond before Katherine's outburst and she didn't even try to fight the bright smile that formed on her face. She really had been ready to wear dark red for the day with a bit of gold accents...up until CC had stormed in late last night with aquamarine as a recommendation. Of course, with her sister in the middle of touring and only being in California for a few hours, Normani did whatever her sister wanted her to do, which included changing the entire ensemble. She had not even had any intention of wearing a two-piece bathing suit, but here she was - a snugly-fit bikini that emphasized her hourglass figure and a color that flattered the darkness of her skin tone. Overall, she was happy and the fact that both of her best friends liked it was enough to let Normani know she killed the game.

"Thanks, babes. I have to try to make sure I stay on your levels since some people like to slay the game just by breathing," she said with a genuine, soft smile playing on her lips and hurried over to the vanity in her bedroom so that she could spray a hint of her Joy Baccarat Pure Parfum by Jean Patou. The expensive floral fragrance was not one she used typically, considering her Bath & Body Works collection, but Mani had figured, what the hell? Instances like these, where she was feeling even more a ten out of ten than her usual, required nothing but the best and she loved the scent. It was in the middle of her quick spritz that Mani saw the flash of Katherine's phone and gave the girl a pointed yet playful look, not at all bothered by her taking a picture. But she did bump her hip against Liv's the second they all got through her bedroom door, grinning devilishly at the blonde. "...I don't know...what about James? Or any of your numerous suitors that run amok in HHS' halls? Though...I am a bit interested in how we're doing on the Sam front, Kitten." She shot back in the same teasing tone once securely locking her door. They had made sure that a lot of the most valuable objects in the house were locked away and her key was going to be given to one of the staff members she trusted the most, Clifton. As the girls headed down the hallway and towards the steps, Normani pulled out her phone to send a quick few texts.

To: Dom
Don't tell me ur still playing hide-and-seek?

To: Chris
Shut up. Be down in a min

To: Jada
Funny story...

To: Honey
Where r u?

Once her text to Honey was sent, Normani's memory came back to her and she linked arms with both girls, pulling them close just as Clifton took the key from her. "Also, be on the look out, ladies. We have...a new student. A few really, but one that just got here. Be nice...for now."
