New Orleans by Night
Ashley’s character is Belle Beliveau, a pizza delivery driver at Magazine Pizza in the Lower Garden District. It’s a new place, established in 2011. She lives with her Aunt Alma. On the side, to make extra cash, she’s a boudoir model at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts in the West Riverside District (her aunt doesn’t know about this scandalous job). Someday she wants to be a real model and to make the Beliveau name famous, but plus sized girls have a hard time with that. Nearby is the Cat’s Meow night club, where all her friends hang out. Belle doesn’t want to die forgotten — she wants to be remembered. She’s got some depression problems, and took too many pills once. Her father and uncle are both in prison, and her mom’s dead. Belle’s friend John Asilidae had a birthday house party. He invited his friend Terrence, who he knows has few other friends. Belle brought Savannah LeClaire so she didn’t have to go alone to the party. That’s where Belle and Savannah became friends with Terrence.
