✖ Name: Melanie Tanberry ▶ Age: 23 ▶ FC: Mila Kunis
Melanie always got what she wanted. Things had been that way for as long as she can remember really. She can from an extremely wealthy family, and her parents pretty much got her anything the wanted simply to avoid her throwing one of her signature hissy fits. Melanie used to be the Regina George of her old high school. She wore the best clothes, had the best hair, and she had this magical way of making people fall under her spell- she could literally make anyone do anything for her. To her classmates, she was seen as a slut and kinda evil. And to her parents and other family members with the exception of a few of her female cousins who she loved to make miserable, she was an angel who could never possibly do anything wrong. Sure, sometimes, like everyone else, they thought that Melanie could be kind of a brat, which she could, but her mom and dad always just blamed it on their parenting. In their eyes, nothing was ever Melanie’s fault. Though she’d never dream of admitting it to any of her classmates at the time, Melanie loved creative writing. She was always writing short stories and reading in her spare time. She loved the adventure and excitement of a good book, it made her forget about the crap she had to deal with everyday in her ‘lame’ life. Melanie may seem like she had it all, like she was bulletproof- nothing could ever hurt her, but that’s not necessarily true. Melanie used to hurt everyday inside, even though her parents gave her whatever she asked for, they never gave her what she really wanted. Her parents were always too busy with work to even notice her. She’d made more memories with her nannies as a kid than she had with the two of them, and it killed her inside, which was probably the reason she acts out all of the time. Because she hurts inside, everyday.
After a little while of convincing herself that she should just go for it, Melanie decided to study creative writing in college in hopes to fulfill her lifetime dream of being an author. She lied to her friends who were starting at different colleges across the country about what she was studying- everyone always expected her to go on to have a hugely glamorous job, and no one knew about her passion for writing. Melanie was much happier in college, but her attitude never changed. She could easily fake sweetness and pretend to be polite and actually care about people, but she was still cold hearted. Melanie dated a few guys in college and hooked up with a countless number, now she had her sights set on someone new: Ethan Blakely. Ethan was the girl on campus that all of the girls swooned over, but he never showed any interest in any of them. Melanie knew she could easily make him fall for her, which she did. She got talking to him one day and after observing him for a few weeks, she knew just how to play it. She acted like the total sweetheart whenever he was around and she knew just what he liked, so the conversation never grew boring. Melanie could tell by the look in Ethan’s eyes that he was falling for her. Melanie wanted Ethan, and remember, Melanie Tanberry always get what she wants. Ethan shortly asked Melanie out for dinner and things were beyond perfect. Melanie, who initially was only interested in him because she thought he’d be good in bed and only wanted to have him because every other girl did, actually found herself falling hard for him. Ethan was easy to fall in love with, he was the kinda guy that every girl wishes on a star for, and for the first time in her life, Melanie actually felt genuinely lucky.
After dating for six months, Ethan asked Melanie to move in with him, two months later he proposed, to which she accepted. The two were set to be married three months later. After a little while, Melanie started getting kinda lazy with the whole ‘make Ethan fall in love with me’ thing, she’d already succeeded in that so she didn’t really see why she had to try anymore. What was he gonna do? Leave her? Nobody would ever leave Melanie, nobody ever had left Melanie, she left them. Ethan noticed Melanie’s cruel and mean attitude almost straight away. He was so…confused. Melanie seemed so sweet and perfect, what happened? He convinced himself that it was just a phase she was going through, but when Melanie only started getting meaner, Ethan knew he had to break off their engagement. He couldn’t marry her, he just couldn’t. When Ethan broke up with her, she was beyond furious. She screamed, threw a hairdryer at his head, and had her bags packed within an hour. Before leaving, Melanie made in very clear to him that he was making a mistake, and that one day he’d come to his senses and take her back. Melanie moved to New Jersey to stay with her parents after that where she worked on writing her first novel. Now, over a year later, Melanie’s back in Doylestown, determined to win back Ethan’s house. She was walking up to his apartment one day when he heard his voice behind a corner. He was with a girl. A younger, much younger girl. She eavesdropped from the corner for several minutes and peaked around the corner soon enough to see the two kiss and for her to leave his apartment. Of course, they had thought that no one saw- they were wrong. Melanie was sickened! She was a teenager and he was an adult! He was her teacher! But Melanie’ll wake Ethan up from his little daydream soon enough.. She knows she will, because she wants Ethan Blakely, and Melanie Tanberry always gets what she wants.
