↳ Nika has always been and will always be sure of herself. She’s highly
independent and doesn’t like to be babied or treated like she needs help
or protection. Nika has always been immensely decisive; knowing what
choices are the right ones to make. One of Nika’s most poignant qualities
is her selflessness, even though she’s had to spend a large amount of her
life looking out for herself its something that still comes across. Below
her hardened attitude and fiery exterior she trule does have a caring side.

By far Nika’s most noticeable trait is her confidence. Growing up in a
family where her mother wore the metaphorical trousers and where
self-expression was encouraged Nika learnt to think for herself and stand
up for what she belived in from a very young age. She has a tendency to
speak her mind even though it may get her into trouble and her very
being exudes confidence. Her spitfire attitude is always a back up to her
outgoing personality, accompanied by her ability to switch from sultry
party girl to sharp-tongued assailant in a matter of minutes. Her feisty
nature has always drawn the attention of men and most notably that of
her ex-boyfriend Aiden who always saw it as an enamouring quality
before things turned sour.

Nika has a very selective intelligence. She has a habit of analysing and
working things out long before anyone else have even logged or noticed
what’s been going on. It’s one of her most interesting qualities as for a
pretty girl she has a sharp mind and the ability to outsmart people
through the use of perception. Though it has never been medically
confirmed several people have suspected that Nika suffers from a mild
form of low latent inhibition, meaning she struggles to block out incoming
stimuli and is thus more in tune with her surroundings. She essentially
sees more than other people.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
♥ ▓ {Likes} Thrills, long drives, summer nights, freedom
♠ ▓ {Dislikes} Intrusion, being held back, mushrooms, hangovers

------------------------------ ❀ HISTORY ❀ ------------------------------
"ɪ ᴡɪꜱʜ ɪ ᴄᴏᴜʟᴅ ɢᴏ ʙᴀᴄᴋ ᴛᴏ ᴀ ᴛɪᴍᴇ ᴡʜᴇɴ ᴛʜᴇ ᴡᴏʀʟᴅ ᴛʀᴜʟy ᴍᴀᴅᴇ ꜱᴇɴꜱᴇ ᴛᴏ ᴍᴇ"

Nikolina was born in Panama City, the first daughter of Bulgarian born
Andrei Shekova and his young Israeli wife. Her parents had moved to
the city five years before in order to take ownership of her
Grandfather’s hotel. Though both were of American citizenship the two
decided the move would be beneficial for them and the family they
wished to create. Nika came into the world on the night of a tropical
storm, the winds raging outside of their home and water leaking
through the roof. After a short labor Mariya and Andrei were able to
look down on their beautiful baby girl, they chose to name her Nikolina
after Andrei’s mother. The name suited the child, a pretty babe with
wisps of caramel hair and the dark eyes of her father. Her parents were
enamoured, she was perfect and they were ready to do everything to
give her the perfect life.

Nika fitted into the bustling routine of the hotel. Even as a baby from
the time she could walk Nika toddled among the guests and was a
source of delight for almost everyone that laid eyes on her. Mariya
would often be busy cooking or preparing the rooms and Nika would
totter around on unsteady legs providing her mother with constant
amusement. Even as she grew Nika’s presence amongst the guests and
her parents was always welcome. She was well liked, talkative and
revelled in the stories told to her by the travellers who stayed at the
hotel. By the time she was nine years old Nika was a confident, well-
spoken child who was proficient in several language. Her parents spoke
English around the household, her peers at school spoke Spanish and
an all manner of nationalities came through the doors of the hotel. It
was clear from a young age that she possessed remarkable intelligence
though this was never reflected in her academic work.

Nika always struggled at school, a combination of difficulty focusing on
the tasks and her own frustration at her inability to perform left her
feeling dejected. She took it out on herself rather than anyone else,
confining herself to her room for long periods at a time or sitting by
herself drawing and taking things apart. Her parents didn’t know how to
help her, they knew she was intelligent and did not understand her
incompetence at school. Though her abilities would later be exposed as
a form of low latent inhibition as a child her symptoms were not
dissimilar from ADHD. They tried to help her as best they could but
when tests for ADHD proved negative they later chose to ignore it.
As Nika reached her teenage years her grades steadily began to
improve and she started to focus more in school. Her parents assumed
she’d simply grown out of a phase; instead she’d used her intelligence
to prioritize and focus on the important things.



Not long after her fifteen birthday Nika’s mother announced that she
was pregnant again, another baby girl who was born in the spring of
the next year. Her sister was named Amaylia and though Nika loved the
little girl it wasn’t long before her parents started to lose interest in
Nika. Their sole focus was on their new bundle of joy and Nika felt
invariably replaced. Still she continued to work hard at school, not for
her parents but more for herself than anything. She had no idea what
she wanted to do after school; all she knew was that she didn’t want to
stay with her parents. Nika worked at the hotel in her spare time, trying
to earn the money where she could with hopes of leaving home and
getting a job somewhere. Her parents where oblivious to her plans and
didn’t notice much else she did, so when Aiden Headley came into her
life they didn’t know anything about if for a long time.(view spoiler)

Nika’s relationship with Aiden was anything but conventional. If
anything it was inherently frowned upon. Aiden was twenty-two and she
was only sixteen. From the first day they met Nika was infatuated with
him. He was attractive, smart, funny and he’d protected her from the
words of his cousins. Nika knew he was older, perhaps too old but that
didn’t stop her; there was something vaguely exciting in being with him.
She knew her parents would disapprove but they didn’t seem to notice
her anymore anyway, Amaylia was growing and her constant cries for
attention kept them occupied. Besides Aiden could provide for her
better than they could. He was ambitious and in the first few weeks she
knew him Aiden had shown her a whole new world. He had more money
than she had first thought. On their first date he had picked her up in a
sleek black sports car, taken her to the most expensive restaurant in the
city and showered her with jewels and presents. Nika never knew where
he got his money from and she never questioned it.

She couldn’t keep her relationship from her parents forever though. It
wasn’t long before her father found out and banned her from seeing him.
Aiden was fired from his construction job at the hotel and Andrei
threatened to involve the police if he came near Nika again. In a fit of
anger Nika told her parents she didn’t care, that she wished they were
dead and she never wanted to see them again. She’d run off in the
middle of the night, to a warehouse Aiden owned where he worked on
cars and there he’d held her and promised everything would be okay.
That he’d speak to them or they’d sort something out, just him and her.
He didn’t fulfill either of those promises, but still he stuck by her,
continuing to give her whatever she wanted. Nika only asked once what
he did to get his money; Aiden avoided the question and simply said she
wouldn’t want to know. Nika could only assume it was drugs; she couldn’t
bear to think of anything else.

----------------- ❀ HISTORY CONTINUED ❀ -----------------
"ᴡʜᴇɴ ɪ ʙᴇɢᴀɴ ᴛᴏ ꜰᴇᴀʀ ʜɪᴍ ɪ ᴋɴᴇᴡ ᴏᴜʀ ʟᴏᴠᴇ ᴡᴏᴜʟᴅ ɴᴇᴠᴇʀ ʙᴇ ᴛʜᴇ ꜱᴀᴍᴇ ᴀɢᴀɪɴ"

A month down the line and the two moved from Panama City to Mexico.
Nika didn’t want to go but Aiden told her if she didn’t he’d leave her
there and Nika couldn’t go back to her parents, not after everything she
said to them. And so she went to Mexico, moving into a small apartment
building above a bar that Aiden’s cousins ran. Nika wasn’t happy and in
Mexico everything seemed to be worse. Her relationship with Aiden
seemed strange, he was overly possessive and where before he’d
showered her with gifts and affection in Mexico the focus seemed to be
on his masculine needs. (view spoiler) His temper flared on occasion
and Nika learned that he could be violent, even towards her. His work
slowly began to invade their lives; strangers came into the building
demanding money, others after drugs, women, weapons. It was
terrifying and something Nika had never understood before. She
longed for Panama, for her home and for family, but now she was lost,
stuck with a man she loved in spite of his actions, unable to turn to
anyone out of fear.

And then he began to involve her in the crime and the terrible acts he
committed. Nika dealt with it at first, for fear that he’d turn that anger
and temper against her. It wasn’t until he turned on her with a bottle
that she realised her love had turned to fear and that she longed for an
escape. After that incident she’d become something of a shell of herself,
the confidence hidden behind the façade of a loyal, loving girlfriend.
The more she saw of him the more that Nika began to hate him. Part of
her wondered if that part of him had always existed deep down or
whether money and greed had changed him. Her memories of him when
she was fifteen had all but blurred into the past. All she could see was
who he was now, a hateful, lust filled man who was ruled by money and
wealth nothing else. He didn’t care for her, he didn’t care for anyone
and Nika wanted to escape.

Her chance came when she was twenty-two years old. She’d endured six
years with Aiden and as time had passed his trust in her had grown. So
much so that he began to take her out on jobs with him. It was one
particular job where he required her assistance as a distraction. She
didn’t like the way he spoke about her, the way Aiden required her to
use her body to get peoples attention. Nika had to go into the man’s
private residence, blend into the crowd of partygoers and keep him
busy whilst Aiden perused his private stash of money and jewels on the
floor above. Everything had been going to plan; Nika was dressed in a
sleek purple mini dress her hair perfectly coifed, her make up covering
the handful of bruises that marked her neck. She looked stunning and
there she was, sat on the lap of some congressman making small talk.
The job didn’t take long and Aiden appeared in the room, signaling it
was time to leave. As they were heading to the door the alarm sounded.
Security guards crowded around and then they were running for their
lives. (view spoiler)

Nika drove for miles, stopping off in obsolete locations in order to fill
up with gas. She kept an eye on her rear-view mirror for cops and
listened to the radio but she heard no mention of her name. It seemed
Aiden had not turned her in. It was as she was driving through
Louisiana that she heard Aiden had jumped bail. Nika decided that she
needed to find somewhere to hide, to lay low and pretend she no longer
existed. Somewhere Aiden wouldn’t be able to track her down. In
Alabama she dumped the jewels and bought a new car, in the bag there
was just short of two hundred thousand dollars. The car was an ancient
Chevy but it would do. And so Nika headed off along the coast of America,
into Georgia in search of her escape from Aiden and new life.

▌▏arrogant || hot-headed || cruel || violent || charming│ ▌

Aiden's personality is no where near as becoming as his features. People often find themselves drawn in by his disarming smile and original charming manner, it's only later that they discover his true nature by which point it's usually too late. His arrogance is one of his most noticeable characteristics, he walks with the gait of someone who considers themselves very highly. He's well spoken and his self-appreciation often comes across in the way he speaks. Aiden considers himself to be a good leader and his self-assurance enables him to maintain a confident and strong approach to working in a team. Aiden has a very fiery temper, he's very volatile and can switch in an instant based on what mood he's in. It's usually the people around him that bear the brunt of this and he can be very frightening without necessarily meaning to.

He knows exactly how to push buttons and knows what to say in order to elicit a reaction from people. Aiden's cruelty comes from his own experiences as a teenager and time spent in juvie. Some say he's mentally disturbed but he's convinced its merely his way of laying down his command. He likes to be in control and finds that fear is the best way to motivate people. Accompanying his cruel nature is a series of decidedly violent qualities. He can flip like a switch and will lash out at those around him, he has the capacity to hurt those he gets close to both physically and emotionally. But he can hide these qualities with his charming nature and a sweet smile he reserves only for getting what he wants. Aiden knows how to manipulate people and knows exactly what to say to get his own way. In all, he's just not a very nice guy.

▁ ▂ ▃ ▅ ▆ HISTORY ▆ ▅ ▃ ▂ ▁

Aiden was born in Atlanta, Georgia the youngest of three boys. His father was a property developer and his mother was a teacher before the boys were born. She gave up work after her second son Bradley was born. Aiden was the baby of the family and though his father was nonchalant to everything his son did, Aiden's mother more than made up for it with her affection. Aiden developed quickly, growing up in a house with three older brothers he learnt to adapt to the constant high adrenaline lifestyle. From the time he could walk Aiden was competing with his brothers, both for attention and success, he'd try racing them or beating them at their own games though he was never able to. The older brother Tom held a bitter resentment towards the youngest Headley, Aiden drew the attention from him and as a sports enthusiast Tom wanted all the support his parents could offer. As Aiden grew and got into sports himself this relationship was stretched further.

Aiden never performed very well at school, though he was athletic he never turned his attention to academics and thus struggled with the important subjects. He was due to be kept behind for a year during middle school but owing to his track performance his tutor allowed him to pass through on his sports credit. At fourteen he fell in with the wrong crowd at school, the kids who smoked, did drugs and were on a dramatic downward spiral. It didn't take long before Aiden too was going off the rails. He started bunking off school, driving around the city in his Dad's car and stashing cigarettes in his bedroom. His parents were lost for what to do with him and in the mean time they were dealing with Brad and Tom's problems as well. Nothing seemed to be able to deter Aiden from his path to destruction. That was until one fateful night. (view spoiler)

A cigarrette Aiden thought he had stubbed out was left on the couch cushion. It didn't take long to catch alight. Aiden and his mother were the only people in the house, his father had gone to visit their grandmother with Tom and Brad. What their father came back to was earth shattering. The fire had started in the living room, burning through into the ornate kitchen and sending smoke fumes throughout the house. Aiden had still been awake when he smelt smoke. He'd run from his bedroom to his mother's room only to find that the door was locked from the inside. Lily had locked him out and confined herself to her bed. The fumes had rendered her unconscious. Unable to rouse her Aiden had no choice but to save himself. He'd jumped from his bedroom window, landing roughly in the yard outside. What Aiden saw would be burned in his memory for his entire life. The picture perfect family home, collapsing in on itself as the flames engulfed it.

Michael Healey arrived back to a scene of chaos and destruction, neighbours screaming and fire engines parked outside. He'd found Aiden knelt on the sidewalk, tears streaming down his face and his head in his hands. Michael sensed what had happened immediately. He'd broken down on the scene right there, yelled at Aiden to leave and never come back, that he didn't care anymore and that Aiden was no son of his. And so Aiden left, fleeing to stay with his uncle and cousins in Mexico. It wasn't the life he had envisioned for himself but at least he'd be safe from his father's wrath and he could deal with his shame on his own. Mexico was very different and at seventeen years old Aiden had no idea how to adapt or to fit in. He didn't know the language and he was a stranger in a foreign land. All he had was the help of his cousins and even then that wasn't enough.

▁ ▂ ▃ ▅ ▆ HISTORY CONTINUED ▆ ▅ ▃ ▂ ▁

At eighteen years old Aiden's cousins let him in on their little secret, they ran an undercover criminal gang of sorts, trafficking everything from drugs to women and running covert missions to steal thousands of pounds worth of goods. Aiden was uncertain at first but the loss of his mother and his father's rejection had left him with little care for himself. He didn't care if he got caught, he didn't even care if he died. Aiden just needed to something to occupy his mind and the work they offered did just that. In a few short years Aiden was running their business, he'd climbed to the top after showcasing good leadership skills and after a run in with a local gang, he'd proved himself as a fighter too. His cousins were only happy to let him lead and in time he brought in more money than they had ever made. Aiden was fiercely lonely though, even with his cousins about he was still desperately alone.

It was while on a mission to ransack a hotel in Panama under the guise of a father/son business that he first set eyes on Nika and decided he was never going to be lonely again. (view spoiler) Their relationship blossomed and Aiden couldn't believe his luck. Nika was gorgeous, intelligent and spunky. She had a fire in her that he quickly learned to love. Her age shocked him at first, Aiden had always assumed she was older but she was accepting of the age gap and if she was happy then so was he. Their relationship was easy and carefree, that was until her father had found out. Andrei had threatened to kill Aiden, but Aiden didn't care, he couldn't be away from her she was like an addiction for him. When she came to him that night having run away from her parents Aiden knew he had to get her away, take her somewhere he could protect her. He would have done anything to keep her.

Nika didn't adjust to Mexico as well as Aiden had envisioned and his illegal work had begun to invade their everyday lives. When he'd come home to find her held at gunpoint Aiden had almost snapped, everything was starting to slip out of control very quickly. With the stress and strain his temper flared, until finally one day he snapped and took it out on her. Nika was hurt badly, scarred across her collar with a broken bottle. Aiden vowed it wouldn't happen again but their relationship was never the same after that. It became based on fear, every action he made was intended to make her stay, even if it terrified her. And she was scared, Aiden knew that but he still hurt her. Nika was fiercely loyal though and after everything she still trust Aiden immensely. And so he began to place more trust in her, taking her on raids with him and allowing her to work in the criminal world. Nika was good, she was manipulative, brave and decisive, able to act quickly and work things out in ways he had never imagined. Aiden never for a moment thought she hated him though, thought that her fear would lead her to betray him but eventually it did.

She left him to the cops in a back alley after a raid, fleeing with two hundred dollars of his money. Aiden was heartbroken, outraged and angry. All he could think about was getting his hands around her pretty white throat and watching the life drain from her eyes. His love had turned to hate in a few short days, nothing hurt him worse than her betrayal and Aiden intended to get his revenge. The minute his cousin paid his bail Aiden took off, following the path she'd left all the way out of Mexico. From there he intended to find her and once he'd got her, he intended to make her suffer. He didn't care about the police or a jail sentence, he just needed to get his revenge. And so now he's seeking her out, looking to make her pay for what she did.
