It was hot, humid, and incredibly unbearable. As enjoyable as the heat could be, it seemed as if Fall was just too far away. It left the everyone uncomfortable and miserable, which led everyone in the Summers household to congregate to the local pool. For a specific Summers, though, this was an opportunity to talk with Jason Hendricks. Joyce or, to those close to her, "Joy" was a tall 16 year old with blond gidget styled hair and hazel eyes. As she was in the yearbook club, walking up to Jason should have been easy as she did need to take pictures for "Most Charming," but every time she thought about it she ended up chickening out!
"Come on, Joy!! He won't bite if you just ask to take a picture. Just breathe and go talk to him. You never know he might like you." Joy's brown haired, blue eyed friend Anna encouraged her while their more feisty, red haired and green eyed friend Lizzy rolled her eyes.
"You know what? One of these days I'm going to push you into him and you WILL have to say something to him." Lizzy threatened Joy with a slight hint of seriousness.
Joy's eyes widened as she stared at Lizzy with disbelief.
"Lizzy!! Stop being so bold!! Sometimes you act..."
"Honestly? Independently? I think I'll continue being true to myself, Anna, especially as I have no intention of bowing to mindless, restrictive traditions that-" Lizzy rant was interrupted by Joy's well timed pinch.
"How about we agree to disagree and get back to acting like the best friends that we are?"Joy suggested with a raised eyebrow.
Lizzy and Anna looked at each other with sheepish grins. This wasn't the first time they argued nor would it be the last time, but that didn't change how the two truly cared for each other.
"So Joy...how about we agree that YOU need to talk to Jason." Lizzy brought the original topic back with a worrisome, mischievious tone. Anna's eyes widen in glee and quickly nodded her head.
Joy groaned and knew that her day at the pool wouldn't end without embarrassment.
Note: I am having Joyce around the early 60's as it is roughly the time period she would have been a teen. I understand that would make Dean in the wrong time period, but I plan to continue on with the idea as it should be fun. Also, forgive me if I make mistakes about the time period in any way as I wasn't born during this time. On that note, please recall that this time period had different values, slang, and various aspects that are quite different to our time period. If you are confused with why I am starting Joyce at a younger age it is because I want to develop her character first. Thank you!!
