In an apartment in Seoul, South Korea two female roommates are arguing, one younger and one older. The younger one has short, natural, multi-faceted blond hair with deep layers and a fine texture to it. She also has hazel eyes currently hidden behind cat's eye-style readers. Her fair skin must have never been blessed with sunlight and must be in her late teens. The other girl, probably in her early twenties, has blue-green eyes and brown hair with tinges of lighter tones mixed in. Both are rather short, at least five feet tall, the younger barley an inch taller than her unnie (how younger girls older girls in Korea.)
Younger girl: *Shouting at her roommate* No, absolutely not!
Older girl: *Trying her hardest to bribe the younger girl while holding up one of her corsets* Come on, Zara Jyne! It's only one night on the town. Looking a little sexy won't hurt anyone
Zara Jyne: *Turns away from the older girl and goes back to her copy of Death Note vol. 5* Laktheeren, I agreed to go out clubbing with you since we had no classes the next few weeks but seriously, do you expect me to wear something like that? *Points to the outfit her friend has laid out for her*
Let me explain what's going on. My name is Zara Jyne Chamberland (but everyone calls me "ZJ,") I'm eighteen-years-old and I live in an apartment just a few blocks away from Chugye University for the Arts where I go to school with my best friend of God knows how long, twenty-year-old Laktheeren "Laka" Johnson. Yes, my childhood best friend is in her twenties and I'm more mature than her. Well, mentally mature that is. Also, nether of us are Korean. We both are from the US but moved overseas to study. I'm going to become a photographer (Seeing that my music carer is going no where) and Laka is studding cosmetology. The issue going on right now is that we are on break and Laka wants to go out clubbing. I though "Eh, why not?" Then she brought out her wardrobe of my nightmares: Corsets, stilettos with insanely skinny heels, dominatrix-like boots and anything/everything that shows too much skin and is Gothic. Now don't get me wrong, I'm into the whole goth/punk/emo/visual kei thing myself, but dressing like a girl from the dark side of Playboy is against my morals.
Laktheeren: *Begging Zara Jyne as she hops down on the bed beside her friend* ZJ~ You've been looking for a boyfriend since that Russian dude ditched you for another guy back in the states
Zara Jyne: *To Laktheeren, rather moody now* Yeah, so? He was confused about his sexuality and I forgive him nonetheless ("Actually, that is a lie. I hate that 'man's' - and I do use that word lightly - guts")
Laktheeren: *To Zara Jyne* Don't you think it's about time you shook things up in your clubbing clothes and went for something more daring? *Makes the corset dance in front of ZJ's face*
Zara Jyne: *Being sarcastic* Hmm, let me think about it *Puts her book down and gives Laktheeren a look* No! *Gets up and starts rummaging in her closet for something to wear*
Laktheeren: *To Zara Jyne in a slightly whiny voice* But Zara~! This is your chance to shine! You always cover yourself up in those weird hoodies and baggy jeans when we go out, you have to give in sometime! Plus *Gives her friends' favorite pair of black/white Converse, all dirty and practically destroyed, a disgusted look* Muddy sneakers aren't ecstatically attractive to the opposite sex
Zara Jyne: *To Laktheeren while deciding over which pair of tattered jeans she wants to wear* Geez Laka, you make it seem like I'm trying to be ugly on purpose *Walks over to her friend's full-body mirror* Guys like girls who can be themselves. It's universal! *Makes a face and tosses one of the pairs of pants back onto her bed and goes back for a shirt*
Laktheeren: *Grabs the eighteen-year-old by the wrist in mid-stride and drags her back to her mirror* Guys also have a tendency to like girls with big boobs *Points at the blonde's 36 D-cup chest* and an hourglass shape *Pokes at her hips, making Zara Jyne jerk to one side and let out an agitated moan* That's universal!
Zara Jyne: *Looks back at Laktheeren* Yes, but I'm also mistaken for a child everyday
Laktheeren: Well, if you stopped dressing like one then it wouldn't happen so much *Grabs the jeans from Zara Jyne and throws them on the floor. She then throws open the doors to her walk-in closet and gestures to her best friend to go inside* Now choose or I will make you watch A Tale of Two Sisters with me (A Tale of Two Sisters is a Korean horror movie about two sisters who, after spending time in a mental hospital, return to the home of their father and cruel stepmother. Once there, in addition to dealing with their stepmother's obsessive and unbalanced ways, a ghost is there. It was the inspiration for the American horror movie, The Uninvited.)
Zara Jyne: *To Laktheeren with a scoff* You got to be kidding me, a horror movie? You know that I thrive on gore and terror! Plus, that movie it not scary enough for me
Laktheeren: *Remembers* You have a point there. Then how about *Smiles evilly* Valentines Day staring Taylor Swift?
Zara Jyne: *She begins to twitch and turns around to face Laktheeren. She absolutely hates sappy chick flicks and talent-less teenyboppers like Ms. Swift* You wouldn't dare make your best friend since kindergarten watch that sappy load of crap, would you?
Laktheeren: *To Zara Jyne with her arms crossed in front of her chest and a smirk on her lips* Try me
Zara Jyne: *Her eyes dart around their apartment then she lets out a sigh* Fine, you win Laka! I'll wear the stupid clothes! *Stomps off inside the closet, pouting*
Laktheeren: *Jumps up and down excitedly and skips along after Zara Jyne, singing "Oh Yeah" by MBLAQ* Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah! Oh Yeah! Oh! Oh! Oh Yeah! I`m Feelin` Good! Oh Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Oh Yeah Yeah *Zara Jyne grabs both of her wrists and pulls her into the large walk-in closet* Yeah~!
