Jessica is an honest person, though bordering on being too blunt at times or even indiscreet. She has to learn that others might take these things personal, although she usually does not mean any harm and these things are often said out of the heat of the moment, in an argument for example.
Being quite restless, Jessica is not one for easily settling down and staying in the same place for a long time, although it might be more comfortable. If not physically, in her mind she is always on the move.
She loves to be around people and easily feels the need to take care of those she deems weaker than herself and to protect them. This intense need to care can lead to smothering quite quickly to a point where she does not trust them to be independent and do anything by themselves. In turn, she also loves to be cared for, though, although she would rarely admit that.
Although she pretends to prefer for others to take the initiative, she is often the one doing it because she gets impatient and needs to get her own way.
She doesn’t like to think things through forever without any notable results. Although she does like to look at either side of an argument or topic, in the end only a clear demonstrative outcome is worth her while. Actions are what count most for her.
Jessica is a team player, despite her rebellious nature and would easily make sacrifices for the sake of the group or the ones she cares about. But most of her insurgent act is just that anyways – an act. She easily makes rash decisions in the spur of the moment, often leading her to trouble.
Growing up in Phoenix, Arizona, Jessica was a rather happy child. Being 10 years apart in age from her brother Carter, rather than fight, Carter always protected her and gladly played with his younger sister.
Her mother Charlene, being a lawyer, and her father Joseph, being a salesman at a large electronic company, could provide a financially stable life for their two children. The family lived at a large house at Scottsdale, just outside of the city. But what was no struggle financially, the long working hours of their parents often left Carter and Jessica in the care of Au Pairs and babysitters in their younger years. Of course, they always found a way to manipulate the young foreign girls into letting them stay up longer than they were supposed to, as well as getting their way when it came to food or TV time.
As Jessie got older, it was harder and harder for her to get along with the girls, seeing as she was usually one to preferably befriend boys, rather than girls. Although she loved being smothered by the caretakers like a little princess at first, she soon discovered her rebellious phase once she started Middle School. Her brother had long graduated from school at that point and visited the local community College, although out of comfort he still lived with his parents and sister. While Jessica would have preferred it, if his brother had taken care of her, the Au Pairs were still frequently living with them every year. The strange thing was that whenever Jessica’s brother was over, he did not really seem to have eyes for her anymore. It was then that she came home one day to see exactly why – she found her brother heavily making out with their newest Au Pair on their living room couch. Outraged and with a feeling of betrayal, Jessica fled to her room. Not only did she not like those girls ‘taking care’ of her instead of her parents or her brother, no, now Carter was siding with them – or at least that was how she felt.
Things got a bit more uncomfortable when Carter got himself a girlfriend and brought her home on occasion where their Au Pair was less than happy about that development. Way too heartbroken over the situation, she went home after two more weeks and Jessica’s parents were left with no one able to take care of their youngest. Constant blame was shoved on Carter who had gotten them into this kind of situation which made him stay away from home more and more until he moved in with his girlfriend who lived closer to College anyways, rather than the suburb.
Due to finding no Au Pair mid-season, Jessica would now be by herself a lot. Her parents were only seen for Dinner and Breakfast and her brother barely showed up and if so, then only to get some of his things. Of course, these visits became less and less frequent. Jessica was unable to express her need for some warmth and affection to her parents or even her beloved brother. Her grades started to drop and by the time she had entered High School, her company became more and more questionable. According to her parents, her friends – usually boys – were no good which gradually became the most discussed topic among them. Jessica however – even if it was not the kind she had wanted – enjoyed the attention she was getting through her so-called bad friends.
When she turned 16, Jessica barely came home anymore. During the day, no one was there to notice anyways but when she started staying away overnight without her parents knowing where she was, they decided to take drastic measures. For her last two years until graduation, they sent her to an all-girls boarding school at Washington. Jessica refused quite aggressively, locking herself into her room for days and no matter how hard her parents tried to reach her, there was no way for them to be able to do so. Only when her brother knocked on her door one day did she reluctantly open up. They had not seen another in months and although she was mad at him as well, she could not pass up an opportunity to see him. He was able to convince her to at least try it out and promised to visit during his time off at work. Reluctantly, Jessica agreed and left the following week.
The boarding school was going to become Jessica’s personal hell.
Her parents came to visit a month after she had moved there, never again after that, seeing as their work kept them busy. Despite Carter always having hated his parents being so busy, he had unknowingly stepped in their footsteps and by the time he finally came to visit, Jessie begged him to take her back home. She claimed she did not get along with the girls, although there were other reasons as well that she was too scared to talk about while she was still in there. Carter – now being in his late twenties – passed it up as this being a teenage thing and assured her that it was just one more year, before she graduated and would come back home again. That was no consolation for Jessica, though.
When Carter announced a few weeks later that his wife was pregnant, Jessica knew the visits would stop entirely now. She felt selfish for not being happy for her brother but her own situation within the walls of that boarding school was making her feel dull and indifferent to anything but herself.
When it got even worse, Jessie could not take it anymore. She packed a backpack with what little she brought to the boarding school and left in the middle of the night, hitch-hiking to anywhere. Two days later, she landed at Portland, Oregon. Thanks to having access to her bank account, she rented an apartment with a fake ID and started working at a bar downtown. The police was looking for her by now but whenever her phone rang, Jessica turned it off. Neither Carter, nor her parents were people she wanted to talk to and eventually, she just threw it away…
