You know that cute delivery guy that you’re always praying shows up at your door when you order a Chinese takeout? And you know that feeling of disappointment when it’s the sleezy forty year old with no hair? Yeah, you can thank Peyton Murphy for that. She’s only been in the city for a week and already she has that beautiful blue eyed boy on her speed dial. Not that it’s really anything to be jealous of. Whenever the boy comes into her field of vision her brain does a full on keysmash while her hands fumble for his money. Sure, she’s then conflicted between eating the delivery whole, wrappers and all, and watching his behind strut out of her driveway, but with her blushing and stumbling over her words, you girls probably won’t have to worry about your boyfriends if they meet this newbie. That is, unless she’s with her neighbour Kayla Glennon because that maneater will be eating him rather than the takeout. Peyton and Kayla are actually from across the pond, originating from Scotland and moving here to the Upper East Side for their mothers’ company, Aloria; a chain of clothing stores filled with lines from many of your favourite designers.
Now here’s the thing, you may be accustomed to new blood coming to town and laughing as they stuggle to make a name for themselves, but these girls already have their own crowd waiting to welcome them with open arms. Kathleen Jaggers, Joseph Stryder, and Kevyn Hinderer laid claim to them the second they met online over a year ago and, while they have no knowledge of their arrival, the second they hear that an ocean is no longer separating them it is likely that they’ll be joined at the hip for the remainder of their stay. So, before you attempt to walk all over this particular, self-proclaimed pushover, you might want to consider just who exactly you’ll be pissing off. Even on her own though it wouldn’t be hard to notice her true nature; sarcastic and cynical, not to mention the epic levels of sass emitted from her when you get on her bad side. This drama queen certainly won’t go down without a fight… well, if she can be bothered.
Currently, Peyton is struggling with thoughts of the future. She hopes to attend an Ivy League college and major in Forensic Psychology, and some days that dream seems possible. However, there are often times where she’s just a swirling pool of stress and she’s really just praying that a zombie apocalypse will strike so that she doesn’t have to face the real world. Zombies really would be a better fate than failing. Actually, anything would be a better fate than failing, and considering the fact that Peyton is terrified of just about everything, that really is saying something. If she could get away with it, she would probably lock herself up in her room with her cat, a few good horror movies, and even more Chinese food and simply hide from all the badness in the world. Guess no one told her that, here in the Upper East Side, no one can hide forever.
You know you love me,
