Alison is an attractive young woman who, once focused on a task, does that task well. Her father has pushed her to be the best at whatever she sets out to do. While her family has never hurt for money, Alison’s parents have taught her the value of hard work, almost to a fault. Alison knows that her parents got to their positions based on the long hours they worked and she knows she received her parts in the ballet by out-performing her dancemates. This is also evidenced by comparing the number of vases of flowers at the end of performances, though Alison has started receiving unsigned cards and the media knows it. As a precaution, Alison started taking self-defense and handgun classes.
Alison’s best friend, Heidi, tries to get her to let her hair down when she comes to visit. They have been best friends since first grade and were inseparable until they both went to college. Both lived in the same neighborhood, attended the same dinner parties, but Heidi was able to remain more free-spirited than Alison. Heidi takes Alison to party when she comes to visit. With the show on hiatus, it is the perfect time for the two ladies to get away; however, Alison’s instructor always knows where she is.
