Haunted Halloween Party! End Date: 12/09/17
Halloween has come to Lochland, and the old Richfield Family Manson welcomes everyone to attend a costume party unlike any other. The old building features a bed and breakfast, museum, and a Ballroom for celebrations.
Be warned: The Mansion is haunted! Any characters threading here are giving permission for the ghosts to play.
Aleksandra is a beautiful and smart woman. She is the mother of a 7 year old boy who is the sweetest thing you will ever meet. Aleksandra has had a very long and sad past. Her parents kicked her out when she was 16 because she was pregnant and she moved in with her boyfriend turned fiance at the time. Several months later she lost the baby because she discovered how abusive her boyfriend was. But she stayed with him because she was convinced that losing the baby was her fault. Her life became more difficult after that. He wouldnt allow her to leave and all he did was abuse and rape her while spending the money she had kept from her parents on alcohol.
When she was 20 she found out she was pregnant again and so she didnt lose this baby she decided to make a run for it. A friend she had from high school helped her out and she was free. Michael was deployed and died in combat and Aleks was devistated but she gave her son the middle name Michael in rememberance of him. She worked as a Barista in a coffee shop and dreamed of one day opening her own one day.
Living in Lousiana thought there was a flood and her boyfriend of the time, herself, and her son packed up and moved to Lochland to escape. Aleks opened her coffee shop and it was becoming more sucessful but her boyfriend at the time wanted to return to the south. She didnt want to move so they broke up and he left. After some time a big business man came to Aleks and informed her he wanted to invest in her but she would retain complete control. So she traveled for a year or so opening a chain of her coffee shops around the United States.
Returning she settled in and her son went to school and loved it. But within 6 months of being back Aleks was contacted by her father who told her he had cancer and didnt have long to live. He wanted to reconnect and meet his grandson. So he came to Lochland and within 4 months he passed away. But within the month after she was informed that her father had left her and her son everything. She was shocked to say the least. She moved home for roughly a month to get the estate in order and sold the house full of bad memories as well as donating some of the money to POW and MIA funds but keeping some to help support herself and her son for future investments.
Moving back to Lochland, Aleks had now published a book on her life though the book is a bit fiction so it not exactly her life just based on a true story. Java Star is a very successful business and keeps to the small shop scene. She travels quite a bit but only on school holidays or weekends so as to not pull Waylen out of school. Overall she is very happy though she had moments where she is very lonely and does wish to have someone to love her and her son.
Aleks is a very friendly person and is constantly making friends. If you're a regular at her shop she knows your name and favorite drink and treat. She gives free baked goods to children and never lets anyone leave her shop with a frown. She implores her employees to enjoy their work and she still helps even if they quit. She hates firing people but she does help whenever she can. Aleks is a bright and brillant business woman and strives to be the best she can.
While Evelyn isn't too bridged on the area of kids or familiar with Java Star, I think it could do her some good to meet and be friends with a woman who is as independent and capable as Aleks appears to be.
Evelyn's last bout with attempting to accept her independence and take out frustrations regarding the last man in her life resulted in her crashing a plane and getting permanently injured. I think it'd be nice for Evelyn to see someone who found a comfortable place for themselves and learn from it.
Though I think I'd be just as happy having them just be friends and spend time together.
It's cool. Java Star is one of those small shops that few know about but its way better then Starbucks. lol But sure. It sounds like a good idea. Aleks does have her moments because of her past abuse but she loves making friends and if she can help someone be or feel independant then she'd be more then willing to assist. Being a CEO she also gets free time whenever she wants but sometimes chooses to be a Barista. Fun thing not alot of people who come to Java Star realize she owns it because she is always working as a barista when they see her. No one really expects her to be a CEO and actually work at her shop. that was really just an FYI feel free to ignore it.
Like myself, Evelyn isn't much of a coffee drinker. But that's unimportant. It'd be interesting for Evelyn to notice how interested in working Aleks is when she doesn't really have to in the way she chooses to.
Evelyn is a pilot and spends most of her time working out her schedule and which flights she'll be operating. She's just off the end of her leave due to injury and she's always up for teaching people how to fly. She' a little hesitant to fly by herself so she'll likely call upon a co-pilot even for instructing for a short time. (Mostly FYI there)
I definitely think these two would get along, despite the issues cropping up from their pasts.
There is way more then coffee at Java Star. She bakes everything homemade and has tones of teas and various other drinks and sweets. But Aleks does travel alot. I could see her wanting to maybe learn how to fly to get to these places or even hiring Evelyn for such things. Perhaps. Of course thats only if she wanted to.
Evelyn hasn't done much private flying, but she's not outside of doing that for someone. She enjoys flying, she'd just have to teach Aleks how to fly so she could have her as a back up in case something happened.
Aleks would totally be willing to learn how to be a back up. She's all about safety first. Considering she has a son shes become more cautious though she's not overbearing. She loves helping people and if they need anything. Talking, listening, advice, food, a place to stay, or anything else. Shes more then willing to help. Also her cookies are to die for. lol
Lara has a similar past to Aleks’ in that they both had abusive boyfriends and had to run away from their previous lives. She’s not very sociable, but I can see her wanting to get Aleks’ attention after reading her book or simply finding out about her success through other means. She recently became the new owner of the Plum Street Bakery and it’s been harder than she thought, so she’d probably be interested in approaching Aleks for advice and would aspire to be like her. She would probably try to be low-key about it and simply visit Aleks’ shop enough times for the other to become familiar with her face.
I read her bio and I approve of this plot. Though very few people know that her book is based off her past. She doesnt like talking about it just in case he comes after her. Aleks loves helping people especially if they were in similar situations as her. Aleks tries to get to know or becomes friendly with anyone that comes to her shop. If anyone is staying in the shop and is alone or even not she likes to try and sit and talk with them and ask them how they are.
Jaina is also from Louisiana (Baton Rouge). Perhaps the two could have known one another if she's from around the same area. Jaina is also a mom who has had a rough time (her husband was killed in the line of duty). I could see a friendship here either way.
Well Aleks hasn't lived in Louisiana for 4 years and lived there for only roughly 4 years. I never actually said where Aleks was from because she came in with the flood survivors in 2014 with her now ex boyfriend and her son. But she owned her coffee shop in Louisiana too.
But I could see them knowing each other. AleKS supports law enforcement and military. Her best friend was killed in action as a marine before her son was born so she's become very active in her support. I'm sure they could be amazing friends. ^.^
