Early History Edit
Laura Anne Pearson was born on April 26, 1976 to Henry Pearson and Lydia Hathaway, who were both witches, in Seaside, California. Her sister Miranda, was born before her, and was put up for adoption, unknown to Laura. The reasons why, because her parents were very young when they had her, and thought they were doing the right thing, and her mother's second cousin Mason Hathaway adopted her. In high school, as a Freshman, she was new, though a kind senior named Miranda Hathaway, befriended her. Knowing that Laura would someday become a witch when she turned 18, they became best friends. Her parents were shocked to see that their daughter Laura had became friends with their daughter they had gave up to their cousins, though they kept it a secret, and the Pearson's and Hathaway's were in the same coven with each other along with a few other powerful witch families. She was able to skip a grade in High School, since she was in all AP classes. After she graduated from Franklin High in 1993 at age 17, she attended college that fall, and met senior Aria Pierce, who was at the time engaged to Andrew Pierce. The two became quick friends, and even shared a supernatural secret with one another, Laura a witch and Aria a werewolf. At Aria's wedding, Laura was introduced to Samuel Reza, who was the best man at Andrew's wedding, Laura was the maid of honor. Being a witch like herself, the two fell in love quickly. Laura described after meeting him, the rest was "history". In 1994, in her second year in college, she became pregnant with their daughter Lydia. Though she feared she wouldn't be able to give her child a good life, she had doubts on weather or not to keep the baby, but Samuel assured her they will be alright, and they were. They married in December of 1994, when Laura was in her fifth monthsof pregnancy. When Lydia was born, the Reza family moved into a apartment to reside in till they graduated, and they later moved into their two story home on the beachfront in 1998. He became a very successful lawyer, while she went into interior designing, and became very skilled in doing it. Which lead her to become a renowned designer in her field. Her sister/friend Miranda Hathaway got pregnant around the same time as Laura, and had a daughter on the same day, Cel and Lydia, who also became best friends and were unaware they were cousins. Despite being young parents, they made something of themselves. Since Laura had named her daughter after her mother, she usually called her by various nicknames. During the late 90's and early 2000's, they worked with the Hathaway Coven, Samuel usually hunting down evil supernaturals with Jeff, and Laura helped on certain missions as well. After the deadly battle in 2005, they stopped being enforcers for their coven, embraced their current careers, and raised Lydia away from the coven and magic, but still trained her in their witch heritage.
