Meet generation 1, Alexis Jensen. She goes by Lexie for short. You can read her back-story below if you want to get to know her better before we delve into her present story.
Lexie's father was a juiceholic; he wasn't very kind to her and her mother. Her dad ended up abandoning the family when she was 4 years old, and she never saw him again. Her mother did the best she could raising her only child as a single mother, but most of the time Lexie felt pretty neglected and thus became very independent. Her mother remarried her rich step-father when Lexie was 13 years old. He loved her mother dearly, but wasn't very thrilled about the grumpy teenager who came in the bargain. Her parents spent most of their days being in love with each other and once again, Lexie fell by the wayside. As most children with attachment disorders do, she became rebellious and got in a lot of legal trouble. The problem was that she had a penchant for spreading her feelings all over town in the way of urban art: the city was her canvas. That and she tended to have pretty sticky fingers whenever in public. It was likely a cry for attention but to no avail. Her parents began taking long vacations to avoid her so one day, she stole all the cash in the house she could find and set out for a life of her own in a new town: Aurora Skies.
Her traits are: Artistic, Avant Gaurde, Kleptomaniac, Loves the Outdoors, and Rebellious. Her lifetime wish is is to spray paint 7 masterpiece murals, though hopefully she'll get arrested less frequently than her previous urban art escapades. Lexie is a young adult with big dreams and no clue how to be a grown up.
Lexie arrived to Aurora Springs filled with the excitement of a new beginning. Once she saw the amusement park, she had to stop and play.
I'm finally FREE! She thought, her heart swelling with joy. I can do whatever I want. And she did, all day.
"There's a DJ booth anyone can play with? Sweet!" Lexie proclaimed. She'd never DJ'd before, but how hard can it be, she thought.
Oddly enough, she wasn't half-bad at it and drew a small crowd. But before long, she realized that she felt ravenous and hadn't thought to bring any snacks on her runaway adventure.
Fortunately for Lexie, she heard an announcement that an eating contest was staring and they needed more contestants. She was all over that. (That is a lot of hotdogs - ew)
With a stomach filled with food, Lexie thought a roller coaster was just the thing to do...
But Lexie began feeling a bit lonely when she boarded the roller coaster by herself.
The night settled around her rapidly and it caused a twinge of homesickness. She missed her friends at home and hoped she could make new ones here easily.
Wanting to overcome her sadness, Lexie decided to ride all the rides before she turned in for the night. Plus, it's not like she knew where she was going to crash. There has to be a hotel of some kind, right?
It turns out that roller coaster rides are just as much fun alone, Lexie was happy to realize, though she began questioning her decision to get on a coaster right after eating.
These rides don't seem very safe! Lexie yelled internally. After that, she left the amusement park a bit shaken up. This place is nothing like home.
Having ridden her bike around the whole town twice, Lexie complained to herself, What sort of small town doesn't even have a hotel. Just then she spotted a fire station with the door ajar, and being a rebel, Lexie had to take a peek inside.
She felt like Goldy Locks sleeping in their beds and eating their food, but no one was home and she desperately needed someplace to crash.
In the morning, Lexie learned that the fire station was equipped with a fryer and several corn dogs in the freezer. One might almost think she has a hidden mooch trait, though she doesn't. Lexie is just used to having to fend for herself.
There was even a gym and an easel, of which Lexie took full advantage. Still no firefighters around yet... odd.
After drawing a child-like picture, Lexie looked out the window to see that a summer festival had come to town. It turned out to be free too, so Lexie was all in. Playing felt much better than thinking about her bigger problems of having no home, no friends, no job, and limited money.
