I had this started a few months ago and finished it since I really needed it off of the computer.
Her name is Christel. She is 17 and in her senior year of highschool. She is also among the popular of populars, typical highschool drama where she is the popular shit of the highschool weebs and everyone is below her. Starting from her freshman year she became really popular and was the talk of the school, good grades and fluent in German - even so to the point where she has to correct her German studies teacher a lot. This is mostly because she comes from a German household, born in America but growing up speaking the language.
Although, when she became a Junior three Chinese exchange students came to the school on a scholarship. They, too, were good with grades and fluent in another language which had other people fawning over them. Christel, although, wasn't to have this. She starved for the attention, desiring all of the stares and love she once had.
So, she tried to find a way to turn everyone's views back on her. And what better way to do that than to fake being suicidal?
She went home and began to slice up her arms, intentionally wearing an outfit to school the next day that didn't cover her arms and waited for reactions. Obviously, her schoolmates did just as she wanted (including the exchange students) and showered her with attention and cries, asking her why she'd cut herself and what was wrong. Christel only told them that it was from a growing depression and school was stressing her more which caused the cutting, but it was obviously a lie.
From there, she began to go to therapy and her parents had her on suicide watch. Months passed and with 'major' improvement from the therapist and no marks or attempts, Christel was deemed no threat to herself and stopped her therapist visits. Although, she still takes her 'depression' pills but she actually stashes them and doesn't take them and sells them to druggies secretly to grab cash.
Now within her senior year, Christel still gets the attention she so desires but there are many times where the attention is moved to someone else and she goes back to 'pretending to kill herself' to be the star once again. This isn't as often as it once was, though. But beloved Chris still cuts. Doing it so many times within the years, the cutting she did as a sign of attention became a habit and she began to do it on a whim. She has made a rule for herself when she moved to her last year of highschool; only to cut when she's done a good deed.
Walk someone across the street, help someone with directions. Helping or being kind. She made it a goal to try to do something nice every day so she can come home and cut herself. Recently, however, she has been really running her rule dry; smiling at someone that isn't pretty or telling them they have a nice shirt. Really it ISNT a good deed but she tells herself she can bend her rules a bit.
She cuts on both arms and has been secretly cutting her inner thighs. Included with her outfit she usually wears a jacket to help cover wounds and scars, which she tends to wear to school a lot. But when at home or in public (like a resturant) she goes sleeve-less to show off her beautiful slices and bruises.
All in all, Christel is an attention whore bitch that desires everything to be about her. <3 She was inspired awhile ago from a dream I had.
