Introspective soul

Pending GM approval

“If you want to really hurt you parents, and you don’t have the nerve to be gay, the least you can do is go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possible can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”

-Abigail during a private speech to her students

Summary

Abigail is the rather new teacher of fine arts at Wellington High School. She graduated from the University of Southern Maine three years ago and was hired at the school about year later to fill in the position after a previous teacher failed to deliver according to expectations.

Rainl.jpgAbigail is well liked by most students and many of the teachers, even though she has yet to be fully accepted among all employees at the school. She teaches many classes, all of them focused on the fine arts or arts.

Appearance

Abigail has a soft and slightly heart-shaped face with angular cheekbones and a pointed chin. Her narrow eyes is a clouded dark grey and her thinly plucked eyebrows are shaped into a deceivingly perfect arch that follow the curve of her eyes. She has a small pointy nose over thin and sharp lips. Long and flowing dark hair hangs from her shoulders in flowing locks unless she is painting, when it’s tied in a large and simple knot on the back of her head.

The soft but narrow features in her face is a reflection of her entire body, from her thin arms to her short statue. She walks in a slow stride, and seems to move only after thinking carefully about how to do it, a reflection of dance. Her shoulders are often slouched forward and her face leaning over, wearing long sleeved shirts or blouses and long pants.

When she teaches, her back straightens, and her faces relaxes, as if she for a moment forgets where she is.

Mannerisms

When teaching, she is passionate and almost flamboyant but outside the class-room Abigail is sociable and soft spoken among people and rather likable. She smiles a lot and seems to hang around teachers and students a like, she is a good listener and seldom speaks about her self.

For those that study her closer, she can often seem aloof. As if her mind wanders to some distant place, long past. A simple sound makes her smile and return to reality.

Rumors

Abigail is very well liked among many students, especially among some of the older boys. There are many rumors and whispers of her having affairs with several of them, they are probably all false though. Abigail seems sociable with most students, but never too close.
A few of the more the more conservative teachers has ha rad time accepting Abigail’s liberal teaching methods, there are some who wants her gone. But she gets a lot of good results. A few sizable donations has been left to the school after thankful parents.
Some students say they have seen Abigail in Boston, some say she has a twin sister.
She never shows her own work at school, apart from teaching techniques. Many students have tried to coax her into sharing, but she never does.
