Project Wessa

By ZoeisthyGoddess

Romance / Humor

Step 1

The door to the Model S Convertible opened revealing Will, and Cecily Herondale, and Dear God, did Will look gorgeous. His hair was perfectly unkempt, and made Tessa want to run her fingers through it. His eyes were a lovely pansy blue and twinkled mischievously, like all the time. Ugh! Why was he so sexy! He was like all the attractive book characters Tessa had ever read about combined, and with that black hair and blue eyes...mmm, she definitely had a crush on him.

“Hey Tessa, what are staring at?” Tessa’s best friend Sophie asked, “OH! Will Herondale! Ooooo, girl you’ve got it bad!” She started smirking and giggling, while Tessa slapped her lightly on the shoulder.

“Oh be quiet Soph. Nothing is ever going to come out of it so just leave it. I will admire him from afar and he will continue being perfect.” Tessa smiled slightly at Will, “Besides he is going to get a lead in the musical just like all the years and I will be on makeup, so maybe I’ll be able do his.” She promptly turned and walked away from Sophie telling her that she would see her in their biology class.

Meanwhile, Cecily Herondale was bombarding her brother with a barrage of questions, and Will was blocking her out. His eyes scanned the parking lot outside Nephilim Academy. He saw two girls who were usually on costume and makeup for the drama department. He knew the brunette with the hazel eyes, and silvery scar had a name that started with an ‘s.’ Silvia, Serina, Selina, Sophia. Sophia! That was her name, Will was sure of it. But the other girl... Will’s eyes scanned around for her but she had left Sophia’s side. Damn it, he thought, She was hot.

“Gwilym Herondale! Ydych chi'n gwrando i mi?” Cecily’s voice broke his train of thought, she sounded pissed at him. Shit.

“Na, gariad, yr wyf yn onest nid ydynt yn poeni.” Will knew he was playing with fire as he answered but Cecily just smirked.

“You were checking out that pretty brunette with the grey eyes. Am I correct, brawd anwylaf?” Dang she’s good, Will thought. But instead of answering he rolled his eyes went off in search of the tawny curled girl.

Sophie Collins watched the Herondale siblings with an intensity that could melt diamonds. She noticed how Cecily joked around with Will, using the teasing stance of a sister who had nothing better to do. But when Will left, most likely going to his first class, Sophie was surprised that Cecily walked directly toward her and began talking to her.

“Hi I’m Cecily Herondale, which I just realized you probably know but aside from that, you’re Sophia Collins right?” Sophie laughed, the girl's smile was infectious.

“Yes, but you can call me Sophie,” she smiled slightly, watching as Cecily’s smile became bigger, if that was humanly possible. The two girls were just talking when Cecily asked the other girl what her friend's name was. “Tessa Gray?” she answered a questioning tone edging her voice.

“Oh! She was the soloist in the music concert, right?” Sophie nodded and Cecily started to squeal. “OMG! I have the best idea ever!” she cried “We need to set up Will and Tessa, they are so meant to be.” Sophie smiled wickedly knowing just how right the younger girl was.

“What do we need to do?” she asked, almost scared to hear the answer. Cecily grinned, an evil glint in her pansy eyes,

“Project Wessa, Phase 1, Step 1: Get Tessa into the musical.”


Sophie had been pleading with Tessa for six periods, trying to get her to agree to audition for a role in the musical, which was ‘The Sound of Music’ this year and was incidentally Tessa’s favorite movie of all time. She could feel her resolve not to try out crumbling as she sculpted a hunk of clay.

“Come on Tessa, Please?” Sophie asked, her hands flashing across the paper in her sketchbook creating a long midnight blue a-line gown that looked like the night sky, “Mr. Branwell, shouldn’t Tessa audition for the musical?” Tessa mentally sighed, Well played, Soph. Drag my favorite teacher into this. Oh! and just for kicks make sure he’s the director’s husband.

“Oh, yes definitely! Tessa you really should audition, you have a lovely voice.” Tessa shook her head but she knew Sophie could tell she was near breaking point.

“Please, Please, Please!” Sophie gripped Tessa’s hand “I’ll take you shoe shopping” she offered. Tessa looked horrified. “Kidding, sweetheart. I’ll buy you starbucks!” Tessa moved her hand as if to say ‘more.’

“I’ll bring cookies for your class,” Mr. Branwell suggested. Tessa lit up, the cookies he brought on occasion were amazing.

“Fine, I’ll audition.” Tessa murmured. Sophie cried out in victory, pumping her fist into air.


After School (Tessa has had her Cappuccino)


Cecily lay sprawled on her bed texting Sophie about the Project W. She had all the steps perfectly planned and organized, Cecily was a little bit OCD about organization and color coding.

Tessa agrees to audition

Wonderful, Cecily thought, They’re sure to fall in love now that I’ve come up with a color coded chart to follow! She sighed contentedly and called Sophie because her hands were getting tired and autocorrect was getting on her nerves. Sophie picked up “Autocorrect?” as her greeting.

“Yeah, ‘twas getting annoying. Anyway, you got Tessa to agree? You go Soph!”

“Thanks, but really all I needed to do was bring Mr. Branwell into it. She loves him.” Sophie explained, Cecily could practically hear her rolling her eyes. “So can you tell me about Will? I don’t really know anything about him except that he’s a winter.”

“Well, Will is a complete bookworm and is always quoting Shakespeare at me, or basically anything written from 1930 and down. He’s deathly afraid of ducks-”

“Ducks?” Sophie choked out through her laughter.

“Yeah! He was traumatised by one when he was three years old, and says you should never trust one. It’s really funny because they’re my sister’s favorite animal, and she’s always defending them. It’s really funny.” Cecily giggled as she spoke.

“You have a sister? What’s her name? How old is she?” asked Sophie, she was an only child and loved talking about other people’s siblings.

Cecily laughed, “Woah, a lot of questions. Yes, I have a sister. Her name is Ella, and...Wait. Sophie. What’s the date today?”

“Umm....It’s....December 11th.” Sophie replied not quite seeing why it was important.

“Damn it. It’s Ella’s birthday today and I totally forgot! So sorry Sophie, I need to call her now. My email is ceceanneisthequeen14@dash.com.”

“Cool, mine is sophielovesfashion99@vogue.com.” Cecily jotted it down on an aqua post it, then said goodbye and hung up. After which she called her sister to wish her a happy birthday. She checked the clock, 4:30 in the afternoon. That wasn’t that late in London was it?
