Investigation; Customer Sales Assistant at Aloria • OC • TAKEN•
Kayla Glennon is the greatest person you will ever meet. Seriously she’s your God so worship her. Or at least that’s the vibes you get off her when you first meet her and if she’s not suspicious of you and your shady aura then she’ll greet you with her bright and beaming smile which she saves for those she loves and cherishes oh and for the hot boys with the real nice arms. So if you fall into either of those categories then you’re in. While on any normal given day Kayla is friendly, fun and unintentionally flirty- or so she says the little man eater- if you happen to hurt someone she cares about then you better hope there’s an afterlife because that’s where she’ll be sending you. Think angry lioness and then times it by ten. There is nothing more terrifying than Glennon Rage. She’s fiercely protective of her friends and holds almost all the answers, glad to give advice and lend an ear to those who need her. These qualities are what make her such a good friend to neighbour Peyton Murphy who is like a duck out of water when it comes to life. Seriously, how she even functions we know not. Kayla’s heart is at least two times the size of a normal person’s even if she doesn’t know it, be it in the way she always insists on paying for that salted pretzel or the amount of consideration she takes into buying gifts or even the way she simply remembers to call whenever you’re having a down day just to make sure you’re okay.
Like Peyton she hails from way over the ocean, Scotland to be precise. The two moved here only but a week ago due to their mother’s growing company Aloria; a chain of clothing stores filled with lines from many of your favourite designers including Eleanor Waldorf’s Designs. The fact her mum has exclusive access to all the latest stock in the fashion industry doesn’t help with Kayla’s, for lack of a better word, hoarding. The girl just loves to buy things, mostly for others but for herself too especially if she’s having a bad day because of some rude bitch at work or a killer lab report due in college. She loves making her own money almost as much as she enjoys spending it and unlike Peyton she has a lot to show for it. In fact some days you can barely get into her room with the fresh shopping bags blocking the door. Of course all the items she buys are very organised amongst the chaos of her room as she almost has OCD like tendencies and never does anything half assed. A lover of many a thing including rhubarb pie, chicken, Irn Bru (specially imported from Scotland), bacon, especially bacon, any one of these things can be used to get to her heart. However the one thing that Kayla despises above all else, even above beans and Lady GaGa, is liars. Of course in a city full of them you can imagine she’ll have her hands full with being disgusted by them. Lying to her is the worst thing you could ever do. End of story.
Of course it’s not all doom and gloom. Besides the fact she’s always wanted to live in a country where when the zombie apocalypse hit she could easily acquire a gun, the Upper East Side happens to house Kathleen Jaggers, Kevyn Hinderers and Joey Stryder three of the most wonderful people she and Peyton have ever had the good fortune to know albeit they met online. They don’t know that the girls are in the city but when they do we imagine the whole of Manhattan will explode with love. While Kayla isn’t the push over she used to be, stumbling over her words and insecure in herself there is still a part of her that is. She just got way better at hiding it. However Kayla is often looked at to make the final decision or to comfort or to hand over the lip balm she always has with her just in case of emergencies. There’s no doubt in out hearts that this long legged beauty is going to have the absolute time of her life here on the Upper East Side. And do you want to know a little secret Kayla? We’re in no short supply of beautiful men with beautiful arms here.
You know you love me,
