My Back Story (via @SassyJessOB)


Jessica grew up in a god-fearing middle-class family in Louisiana who home schooled her. Her parents were devout Christians who stressed strict studies, good grades, and of course, faith in Jesus. Her father beat her with his belt for the smallest error in her chores or bad grades.

Her mother was either too stupid to notice or simply ignored the unpleasantness; an optimist to a fault. Her lifestyle was very repressed. Every privilege was earned through chores and/or her studies. No cell phone, no computer. She was allowed only to listen to Christian music. Her clothes were plain, old-fashioned hand-me-downs, usually always knee-length dresses. She was taught how to act and sit like a proper lady, and took up the clarinet.

Of course, being a seventeen year old, she was not completely blind to popular culture. Jessica listened to the different genres of music at school, talked with her friends about the latest events. One afternoon, when her friends suggested sneaking out to friend’s party, Jessica readily agreed. It was her first time doing something so wrong, and she knew how much she’d pay dearly for it if caught.

Jessica appears during a meeting of the ‘tribunal’- the Magister was passing his sentence onto Bill Compton. Unknown to her then, Bill had murdered another vampire, and was ordered to create another. Surrounded by vampires and the Magister, Bill bites and turns Jessica into a vampire.
