that roll back when she's laughing at me
[ rhythm of love // plain white t's ]
* anais adélaide adair
* student at hmbc
* work with humanities based subjects
→ anais grew up in rural france, and speaks with a slight accent, that she's mostly adapted out of. she doesn't sound american, but her voice has a refinement that often makes people assume that she is of a high class. they're not wrong of course, but the assumption is always made before knowing her. she adored growing up where she did, although frequent trips to the city were often in order, due to her father's position. he's a french politician, though he decided to finish his political career when anais was nine, in favour of expanding the family business to the states.
→ as a much-longed for only child, anais is very close to both of her parents in different ways. she and her mother have the chance to act girly and gossip together, and shop through antique stores and go for lunch - all the high society things that are liked. still, she is spoiled by her mother. despite this, she is one hundred percent a daddy's girl and constantly strives for her father's affections. they're in abundance of course, as he dotes on her, but he doesn't approve of the amount of material possessions her mother lavishes on her. he believes firmly in women's rights and wants anais to be her own person outside all inconsequential posessions. it doesn't stop him from spoiling her too from time to time.
→ she knows her way around people. she's manipulative and smarter than she appears, and often hides behind a persona of a silly blonde to work things to her advantage. she doesnt' dumb herself down for boys of course - she simply doesn't reveal all of her intelligence right away. she likes to keep herself shrouded in mystery so that people will work to her advantage. she by no means wants to be the "queen of the school", but she's quite content with people not realising that they've been duped, and liking her. truly, while she does often twist people and work them to her advantage, she is a good person. deep down. it's simply that she has little desire to get properly close to anyone around her.
→ maths and english and subjects as such don't keep her attention as much as humanitarian subjects do. she takes geography, psychology, sociology and history in order to keep herself entertained, which prompted her to add biology to the list. she's fluent in french and english, due to her nationality and place, but wanted to add another in. she takes latin classes at school, interested in learning the language.
→ secrets are her friends. to this day, she's never told a soul something that some has explicitly asked her not to tell, but she has been known to use information for her own gain. people don't know much about her really, but they *think* they do. they assume and she neither confirms nor denies. she has a reputation for being good in bed, which is surprising to her considering that she's an out-and-out virgin. it doesn't bother her one bit. people can guess what they like, but she's hiding nothing that she's ashamed of.
that's not entirely true.
