  1. now what?

    1. Alexander Winfield

      Alexander Winfield

      Now we get some ice cream or something? I owe a couple of folks some we can roll out like a massive group!

  2. Looking at him she was not entirely sure she believed him. However she was not sure saying that would make him more believable- or his answer would change her mind right now. Frankie had spent most of her life being judged, other girls had been threatened by her and so they tended to be cruel. She had only really stopped caring what they thought in last year or so. She had come to the conclusion that the opinions that matter were those who were your actual loved ones and not classmates. She had learned to ignore their teasing about her dads. She had to remember that it was not normal for some people to have two very loving parents, and in this respect she was very blessed. She also didn’t point out those who had alcoholic parents, or whose mums had come into her dad’s shop for some unmentionable problem… No Frankie had been raised to be a loving and accepting person. It had always been a shock to the little Frankie, who was still a Francesca, when she encountered someone who did not treat her in kind. She also supposed in the long run she was a little jealous of both Alex and Orion, the questions they had about their biological parents had been answered, even if they didn’t actually like some of those answers. Frankie had questions, of course. However, Frankie had not gone to look for the answers. She had not seen the point in it. The woman who was her mother had likely done the best thing she could have done for Frankie by giving her up. She nodded. Though she didn’t really understand. It was not as though Frankie had never kept a secret. For one her dads had no idea she was so serious about fashion, nor did they know the full extent of her friendship with Orion. It was just better that way, they meant well but they would suffocate her… and Orion… That and she was not sure what Orion actually was to her at this point. It was not really something she wanted to suss out right now, it just made her head hurt worse than the dehydration headache. ”I’ll send them over break when I can get out to shop.” One of her rather useful skills was in fact shopping. She had a decent enough idea about the sorts of shoes he wore, and in turn would like. Hopefully. ”Or I can just send you the money.” That was probably safer honestly… she had not quite doubted herself as much as she had recently. She shrugged at the options she had offered however. ”No, that’s okay.” She said when he asked about the assignments. ”My dormmate’s got it.” She said. It made the most sense for her to get it. They were already in most of the same classes, she too was studying potions.
  3. She supposed the fact he had not run off was a positive thing. Or maybe he hadn’t remembered he still had legs just yet. Of course no one could really be sure how anyone would take that particular news. The truth was, she had not been sure how she felt about it all just yet… aside from scared. That seemed to be the only identifiable feeling at this point. Scared, and then just confusion… constant confusion about what to do and who to tell and if she would even bother finishing school this year, or cut her losses. She had not been sure what she was supposed to do with this… what did any of them do in situations like this. She supposed this could have been the way she had come into the world, and in that she had simply repeated a history she didn’t know. Which was not really repeating history… right? She was not sure what any of this actually meant aside from the very obvious and that was she and Orion were going to be parents. She had spent the better part of a day scolding herself for not being more careful… but she supposed they had not really done much talking when it came to what they were doing. They still had their usually conversations but when they had ducked into the hallways, or classrooms or any of the other places they had been doing their certain brand of exploring. It was not as if Frankie could have slowed them down if she had wanted to. In the moment she had not wanted to. ”Yes.” she said when he asked her. She didn’t know what else she really could have said in the moment. She could however tell that he was just as shocked as she was by the whole thing. ”I uh, well…” she said as she looked at him. ” A few days.” She said. It had gotten to the point she had not been sleeping and she had not only been pretty sorry help at the store but she was sort of rubbish when it came to any sort of conversation with them as well.
  4. They had spent a great deal of time with one another, she supposed it shouldn’t be shocking that he seemed to catch onto the fact something was up. However, there was that husky tone to his voice and she smiled at him. It was a pretty great thing honestly. Part of her wanted to ask him if he thought she was a bad person… or overly selfish… she however, was not sure she wanted to know the answer right now. She was really more upset about the fact she had been told she didn’t think about how what Alex was going through affected him. She also wondered if Orion had thought she was immature as well. It had not been her best moment bit when Frankie was irritable, she was irritable. ”I am… so are you.” She said ”My dads are gone… we have the house to ourselves and the run of the kitchen…” so they could make breakfast when they finally emerged from her bed, which didn’t seem like anytime soon. ”I think you might be the only one who can read me.” She said. Looking at her hands before she moved to face him. They could exist like this for a little while longer right? They didn’t have to pop the bubble just yet? However the unfortunate thing about this was the fact no matter what he would likely catch once she could no longer see her feet… If… when… she was not sure. ”I have been trying to figure out how to tell you… and not been really sure how exacty.” She said with a small sigh. ”I uh, well.” She looked over at him. ”I- I’m pregnant… I have not been feeling well, I mean you know that… but I just… I took a test.” She felt like she was rambling and she had not really been sure if it was helping or not.
  5. Frankie realized how absolutely useless she was at this point. It was probably the worst sort of feeling one could have. Useless as a friend, useless as what she was supposed to do once she left Tally and frankly she had been a rather useless. She felt absolutely defeated. Gutted was a better word for it she felt. Looking at him for a moment. Frankie didn’t understand why she was still so upset about this. She looked at him. ’Like it felt like you cut me out of your life.” She said. It was not a good feeling, and that was something that. ”What sort of friendship is this if you won’t tell me anything anymore?” She was curious as to how he saw that going considering that had been what made her angry to begin with. ”I can’t promise I will always be mature enough for you to start with… I have to sit with things, it’s not because I give up.” She looked at the shoes. ”There is a charm that you should use to prevent them from being water damaged, and it works pretty good for vomit too…” Dealing with sick people meant dealing with their family too and her fathers had been sure to provide those things to the caregivers as well. It was relatively useful. ”I’ll get you another pair.” She said. The best way to make up for ruining something was to replace it. That and Frankie was not really someone who would wear shoes once they had been vomited in. Even if it was her vomit. She let out a small sigh. She wanted to just be in her bed. She let out a small huff, mostly to keep herself from feeling queasy again. It was not something she wished to experience again particularly in front of Alex. She had done enough damage. ’Its what it felt like to me… “ She said swallowing. It was not the best way to end this conversation, but she had done enough damage for the day. She moved instead of fighting him though she did her best to move on her own. If nothing Else she was stubborn.
  6. The blonde frowned deeply. ”I am just sharing how I feel… is that not how you deal with it?” She asked him. It was not as though she had really lashed out. Not in the way Frankie knew how to lash out. She was actually pretty good at it, but it only really served to make her feel better and make the situation a little worse. Right now though, she didn’t think it was possible. The way he said not anymore. It sort of stung in a new way. She had just told him that was why she had delved into the books her father had given her. She had been looking to help him but he didn’t want her help anymore? ”I’ll tell them you don’t want anything anymore.” She said rather quietly. He didn’t want her help, he didn’t want her father’s help. On top of that he had called her selfish. Well not actually called her that, she felt it had been implied. ”I haven’t been avoiding you. You are just busy all the time.” At least those times she had seen him. She felt that empty gut feeling, and she hated herself. ”I will knowledge that I’ve not handled this well… but what am I supposed to say now Alex, you’ve told me I’m selfish, that I don’t consider that you have to go through when that’s all I’ve considered… “ She let out a soft sigh. ”How could I not want to make someone I care about not suffer as badly. I can’t ignore that.” Had been what she was trying to say even if it meant sacrificing something else like time to sew, or draw. But again it seemed she had done it all in vain, he wanted none of her help. She probably should have expected it. ”I’m sorry.” Frankie felt defeated. What was the point in arguing anymore? It wouldn’t be fair of her to push this anymore, she didn’t think he was really hearing what she was saying and it only seemed to make it worse when she tried to say something. ”If you really thought we are in place that we could talk about it, then you should be open to how I feel about this too Alex.” She said with a huff. ”You affect lots of people and to just say ‘oh hey I’m dying’ is not something everyone can just swallow and take in stride… I am not that person. I don’t like the idea of tilting at windmills without a proper plan at least.” It seemed like this was one of those times. Not just to tilt at the windmills but have a plan… then again what did Frankie know about anything? ”I get it, I’m not a good friend. I am not doing whatever it is I am supposed to be doing. ” She said softly. She was not a good friend… he had spelled it out pretty clearly for her. She felt guilty. Then again she didn’t really know what she was supposed to do in this situation. Was that her fault? Was there supposed to be some innate knowledge she was born without? ”I don’t really know what I’m supposed to do or how I’m supposed to act… I don’t have friends… probably because I suck at it.” She looked down at her hands. ”It feels like you think less of me or are mad at me because I was upset, which makes my feelings seem unimportant. I’m not saying I’ve done anything of this right because it’s clear I haven’t.” She sniffed. Those familiar tears betraying her. She didn’t understand why she was so out of sorts, she hated this feeling. Even worse she hated the way Alex seemed to see her. And just like that she leaned forward and wretched. Brilliant
  7. She glanced at him and wanted to argue about being put in the chair. However she was unable to given that he put her in the chair before the objection. ’I was upset, period.” She said as she looked over at him. ”I don’t think you should have expected me to be anything but upset. You show up and basically tell me that you are dying and there is nothing you can do about it… how was I supposed to react?” She questioned. ”I manage to make a friend just in time to witness this friend in a tremendous amount of pain… I don’t care who you are that is upsetting news.” She said as she pulled her hair from the pony tail. Her hands on her knees as she braced for the sick feeling. And it was not from whatever had been plaguing her. ”I am not trying to make you feel bad Alex. I am telling you that I am hurt.” She said with a small sigh. Something she never really liked to admit was the fact people had the ability to hurt her. Frankie was not an open person, but then she had no reason to be until now. ”You cant except everyone to carry on like its okay that you are dying and I cant pretend to be anything but upset about it. Jesus Alex.” she was not sure she had understood why she was upset but it had become clearer over the past few weeks. ”I wanted nothing to do with my dads apothecary. I told you as much… but now I don’t have a choice.” Of course she didn’t. There was no question now. ”So between this show and helping my dads with this…” She sighed. ”I am allowed to be upset Alex. I am allowed to feel hurt.” She said as she frowned at him. ”So you said you were unintendedly sending out the message you didn’t want to be around me… but if you didn’t know how to approach how could I read you any other way?” she pointed out. It had been some kind of issue. ”How hard would it have been to say… “I need space.” She asked him. Letting out a small sigh she frowned once more. ”What part of me making sure you have the stuff from my dads is tossing you out of my life… “ She opened her bag. ”None of these books are for potions or herbology… these I’m reading because of you.” She pointed out. ”Do you think I am that horrible?” She questioned him. She sighed. Maybe she was horrible. She didn’t know? She figured there had to be a reason she was not more inclined to make friends. She sighed. ”It’s not something that is easy to make sense of…”
  8. A smile broke on her face. She has to admit she agreed. Looking at her she nodded. ”I have parents who love me. I have yet to grow up to be some sort of criminal, and in spite of maybe my best efforts I will likely be a contributing member to society… It was hard when I was little you know? To me having two dads was just as normal as having a mom and a dad.” She wrinkled her nose a frowned. ”I suppose I will never understand not accepting someone… I think it was one of the first things I learned from my dads. Different is good.” She said with a smile. Though she didn’t know everything about her, she wouldn’t have held much against her. Unless Cass was to reveal she had murdered over 100 people and kicked puppies… but Cass was hardly the person she saw kicking puppies. No that honor was reserved for someone in her house whom she had not seen much of. Thank merlin. ”I know Orion’s sister runs a studio… I could always ask him if he would set up a connection or something.” It was not a bad idea. She could get some of her stuff out there. ”That and I remember seeing ballet with my fathers the Ballerinas always seemed so glamorous… on stage and off.” She remembered being small and looking up at them with thin frames and the way they moved, like they were gliding on clouds… or something. ”And some of the costumes… I saw the ballet of Rapunzel and they were so pretty, not over the top as to take away from the performance but I fell in love with the dress… it was perfect…” the way it flowed on stage. The excitement from the red head made Frankie smile. It was a good thing that she liked the dress. ”Yes to keep!” She said with a smile. ”a Thank you for walking in the show… and for being a friend.” She did appreciate that she had been able to make a friend in her. She knew it had not been easy for the red head… based on what she said. Frankie also understood it being a challenge to make friends. Especially with some of the way people here. Frankie looked at Cass as she came up she smiled. ”Oh wow…” It looked better than she thought it would look. She smiled. Frankie was almost shocked when she was pulled into a hug but she returned it without thought. There was something rather nice about this. She smiled as she squeezed just a little tighter and she smiled as she pulled back and looked at her. ”Oh no- then people will think they can get this dress… its one of a kind.” She said… she left off a hokey saying about her being one of a kind. ”I just thought it was the perfect color for you.” she said with a smile as she looked at the way it fit. ”It just needs a few little fixes…” She said as she moved to pin the hem.
  9. She huffed. ”I don’t know Alex.” she said though the truth was she did know. She let out another soft sigh at the idea of that, She hadn’t learned about anything past that from him. It had been rather hurtful to learn that, and that his father had died from someone else. She let out a small sigh. She had actually opened up to him but maybe her problems were stupid- like her. Maybe that was this whole problem. She was just some stupid girl? She had been told this plenty of times by other students. Maybe he had simply seen the things she had told him not to be important… The fact she didn’t want to take on the store, or that she would much rather design clothes. ”Never mind Alex.” She said with a small sigh. ”forget I said anything at all.” She looked at him as sighed. If only he understood just how private she had been before that conversation at the mall. Orion hadn’t seen her designs… Orion only knew she was not thrilled about the idea of taking over the store… This simply confirmed that her problems were stupid and not problems. ”You don’t owe me anything.” She said. Because he didn’t. If he didn’t want to tell her about his life he didn’t have to. ”I am sorry you came out of your way up here.” she said with a small sigh. She stood up and looked around. Finding this to be unbearable because she realized how stupid she was, and she didn’t need to sit here any longer. ”you know the things I told you were immensely private. And I get its probably pretty stupid to you… but I hadn’t told those things to anyone before…Even Orion and he had been my friend for a few years… ” She said as she stuffed the books back in her bag. ”I don’t talk to people like that… and then you weren’t around and I get you had a lot going on but you came to the shop you told me you were dying and the whole family thing… and then nothing. I felt really stupid thinking we were friends to find out you had a girlfriend I knew nothing about, or that things had been happening for you… you just were gone. And this is my fault okay?” She shook her head as she slung the bag over her shoulder. She was leaving, and she didn’t want to sit there and face the fact she was selfish. ”Thank you for checking on me but I am sure you have more important things to do today.” She said with a small sigh as she swallowed the tears. Frankie swayed when she started to walk out of the hospital wing. She stood up too fast… that was always the worst feeling.
  10. Frankie wasn’t sure she knew if she could give him credit at all. She wanted to point out banks wouldn’t have given credit in this situation… now, banks were hardly the sort of thing to use as model for giving emotional credit- but she didn’t know honestly how much she could give anyone. She had seen herself proven right too many times at this point… he said he was going to be around but she had no proof to back up what he was saying… Frankie was not one of the many girls he had fawning over him and she was no one’s subject. Frankie had always looked out for herself. Right now she was just angry with herself. His categorization of her not being willing to talk made her laugh. ”Really? That is what you want to go with? You realize that you are asking me to spill my guts to you after you spent months telling me nothing at all?” She thought it was a bit unfair. Even if it had been meant as a joke… She wasn’t trying to be a pain. She just found that didn’t really sit well with her… She had felt like they had made a genuine connection and then he seemed to be too busy with everything else. She had said hello only to feel distance. Like now. Things were just awkward. ”I don’t mean to keep dragging it out… but you are the one who pointed out that friendship is supposed to go both ways.” The idea of going to the doctor was not one she liked. She had only come to the hospital wing to get excuses for her classes, she had legitimately been sick and not skipping. Professors would need the notes. She just had to get through this year and she would have been able to do just about anything she wanted to. Letting out a small sigh she shook her head. ”Its just a bug.” It was only a bug. ”I have gotten fluids here they gave me something for the nausea.” She had started to feel better. She then moved her ponytail to her shoulder and twisted it in her fingers for a moment inspecting her split ends… ”Yeah, the medical room.” she confirmed. It was not a lie. Not really, just part of the truth.
  11. There had been a rather extreme amount of anxiety that had settled with Frankie for the past few days. The idea of leaving had become a more attractive one. It was not as though she hadn’t thought a out it before now… she had thought about running away many times before now… she knew at this point she may have no other options. The only good thing about this was they had a little bit of privacy… she had snuck him into her bedroom a few times before, mostly to avoid the questions and very obnoxious way her fathers would have hovered over her and Orion for the time being. She had become pretty good at sneaking out and sneaking in. They had stopped coming into her room in the morning when it had led to some awkward situations. She had taken full advantage of that more than once… Frankie would do her best to be perfect but Frankie was hardly an angel. Which was clearer now… The only thing she knew for sure was that she had to tell him. The rest… was rather unclear. It was not as if she had known for sure what Orion might say but she imagined given his own father issues that this was not going to be an easy conversation. Not to mention she had her own hang ups about parents. If the fact they were both way too young was not a good enough reason to have a kid, they also both had some significant issues with their biological parents making them far from ready to have children. Letting out a small sigh she ran her hands through her hair and she twisted it up into a bun as she used the elastic around her wrist as she walked back into her room after making sure her dads were out. They had left a very sweet note about letting her sleep in, which actually had made her feel guilty but only until she sat on the end of the bed. She had put on Orion’s shirt, a rather comfortably familiar thing. ”Hey…” She said realizing he was awake… she smiled. Orion drove her all kinds of crazy. Even now she wanted to forget what she had wanted to tell him… However she had to tell him before it got to be too big.
  12. It was more about not letting him reject her first. That was always the key to her. If she pushed them away it was less painful when they eventually rejected whatever it was she had to offer. That and the vibe had been weird, and it seemed weirder by the moment. One thing she was apparently good at was messing things up. She sighed heavily. She felt like an ass. She didn’t know how to make that feeling go away which only fueled her need to push him away at the moment. She had done something wrong and it was clear this had been her fault. She had put too much into something expecting the same thing back and it was okay that he had not thought of her in the same regard she had held him. There had been many times she had wanted to talk to him but had felt as though she couldn’t… that he simply had too many other things going on. She let out a small huff as she swallowed her tears for a moment. It was not something she had wanted to go over today. She shook her head. ”I keep messing things up.” She uttered softly. It was not something she had liked to admit but it was clear she was the problem here. Typical. Frankie was always the problem… which likely accounted for the fact she didn’t have friends and she felt like she was lost in space without some gravitational pull to keep her in an orbit. She sighed. It was hard to talk to Alex now where before it had felt so easy and effortless, and now- she just worried she was going to say something stupid, or do something stupid. He was irritated with her and she didn’t blame him. ”Sorry.” She said and shook her head realizing she had just apologized again. He said he had not needed an apology but she felt like now she was going to be making up for the fact she got mad at him. ”And sorry for that.’ She shook her head. ”I’ll be okay.” She insisted. She really didn’t want to see someone she didn’t know about being sick. She had gotten used to the healer she had seen her entire life, or well, since she had come to live with her dads anyway. She had only been 8 months old when she had been adopted. There was something that made her feel relatively comfortable in the usually uncomfortable way someone got sick. ”I am listening to you Alex. Have you listened to me?” She said. Though she had been pushing him away for the next time he retreated, it would be much less painful and it would hurt her feelings less. ”I don’t want to go to the hospital for a stomach bug they can’t do anything for.” She said with a soft sigh. ”I just want to leave.” She admitted- school… home… all of it.
  13. The blonde let out a snort of laughter. ”Well that would be a good thing, only one of my dads ever acts like an adult.” She said with a small laugh. James often joked about the fact he had two kids and not just Frankie. It was one of the many things she was grateful for with her parents, they had actually chosen her. They had loved her without having to and that was a different sort of magic she supposed. ”Thank you.” She said as she looked at the ground. Frankie just wanted things to be perfect. It was all she ever really wanted. She had not wanted to disrupt the plans her parents had for her if she didn’t need to. It was one of those weird things… she didn’t know why she needed to be perfect, but she didn’t want them to think they had not picked the right child… The hang ups were there and she didn’t see them going away anytime soon. Frankie had to agree, opening up was a very scary thing. Anytime she had attempted to, someone had given her a reason not to. The blonde let out a small sigh as she moved to get the full picture of the dress. It looked fantastic. She felt it had a lot to do with the model as well as the dress itself. Frankie understood that thought. She had not seen a lot of teasing now, but before she had been made to feel as if there was something wrong with having two dads and not a mom and a dad. Frankie had never thought about what it might be like to have a mom but she supposed that if her dad’s had not been great, she would have wanted for one. Someone had once told her she had missed out, but Frankie had not felt that way. ”I can understand that a bit I suppose, not the famous thing, I mean the locals know my dads because of the shop, but I was teased about them when I was younger. ”I think so too- before Orion came to school I didn’t really talk to anyone.” Mostly because she had found the girls to be petty and rather two faced. She didn’t like the idea of being fake with someone and so she had just kept to herself. ”I am glad you feel more relaxed here.” She said as she looked at the hem. It was pinned well, and she stood up. ”Oh no.. I’m happy with the length. If nothing else I can let the hem out next time.” She said with a smile. She gave a small hmm as she mentioned the costume design. ”For dance? Or something else?” She asked, given Cassandra was a dancer, that made sense to her. But then many things seemed to make sense to her that were not what was intended. ”I’ve not considered it, but I don’t see why I wouldn’t…” She said with a shrug of her shoulders. ”Okay, this last one- is a thank you.” She said as she took the green garment from where it had been hanging. ”I had this fabric and didn’t know what to do with it for ages… but it was so pretty…” She said. ”I thought it would look amazing on you.” She said with a smile as she handed her the dress. She was always a little anxious about the things she made for others. ”Anyway I thought the green with your hair… I thought it would be pretty.” She said with a smile.
  14. He snapped at her. She supposed she would have snapped too. Not that it mattered anymore. Nothing mattered really. Frankie just wanted to go back to her bed, in her home and just hide under the covers for the rest of her life. At least there she was familiar with the way her dads were, not to mention they would have her felling rather well in no time. She nodded. This felt gross on many levels. ”Sorry.” She uttered as she looked over at him. ”Alex, you really don’t have to be here. I am alright here.” she said. It was weird between them…that was one thing Frankie could very well feel. He already said this was the last location he wanted to be. That and he seemed to be upset with her still. Maybe she has expected too much from the friendship? She sighed at the thought. If she did expect too much she supposed this was her fault. She looked over at him. ”Really, I don’t want you to feel like you have to be here.” She said. ”I’m okay.” She repeated. She figured she would be anyway. Fluids, monitoring and she had an excuse for her classes for the rest of the week. It would be alright. She would be alright. She sighed. Frankie hated herself most of the time, and this was no exception. ”Thanks but I’m fine. My dads will send something.” She assured him. She actually wondered if she could go home and recover until the Easter holiday. ”I’m sorry you came over here. I’m sorry.” She said. Biting her lip and pressing her forehead into her knees. ”I am sure you have more important things to do…. thanks for coming.” She said with a small sigh.
  15. Frankie had tried, but apparently not hard enough. That seemed to be the long and short of it. Frankie was simply not enough. She bit her lip and she shook her head. Frankie sighed. Nothing seemed settled in her world right now. ”I don’t care that it was Cass, I care that it wasn’t you.” Which had been all she was trying to say. ”I like Cass, and this is not about her.” Frankie had made the other young woman a dress because she couldn’t not make it for her once she saw the fabric and the way the dress had come together. That however was not the topic of this conversation. ”You’ve been sending weird signals and I don’t know how to read them… it seemed like you didn’t want me around so I just stopped trying to come around.” She said. Though she was used to the moodier signals of Jackson and Orion. She had wanted Orion and Alex to meet because she thought they could find common ground, but it hadn’t happened. ”My point is that you didn’t talk to me-“ The fact was she had also not ended up following through on running away, though the thought was looking better and better, because she thought that she had an actual friend. She didn’t uncoil however. Frankie had always been one to curl herself to be as small as possible… it was the physical representation of what she was attempting to do on the inside. To push this down as far as it would go in order to forget the way this felt. However, her emotions had been too big to shove anything down and it was showing up all over the place. Maybe once she settled from this portion of irrationality she would be able to see his side… though she figured he was right she was not a very good friend. It was hard for Frankie to understand what he was going through when he didn’t really keep her in the loop. She didn’t have the whole picture and so she could only make assumptions based on what she saw. Frankie had just felt so lonely recently. What did it matter? Frankie hated this. She just wanted to be back in her bed. She was tense, and she only felt her muscles coil tighter for a moment as he touched her. Frankie felt that familiar guard she liked to leave up with people. ”Really, I’m fine.” She assured him. She had thought she would be here alone and that was not uncommon for her. She swallowed the nausea that came with that thought. She pressed the heel of her hand to her eyes. She sighed. The truth was Frankie was not fine, she just didn’t know how not fine she actually was. It was a surprise he had stuck around… she had thought he would leave. It was the sort of thing she was used to. Maybe that was the problem, so many people had let Frankie down she simply pushed them away before they could actually make things worse… Maybe she had just been quick to write Alex off because she didn’t want to get hurt. She sighed. She took the tissues but they remained balled in her hand. She muttered a ‘thanks’ and sniffled. ”I don’t know what is wrong with me. I’m sorry.” Which was the basic truth here.
