Bonnie squinted as a bright light pierced through her eyes and sparked an intense, throbbing ache inside of her head. She muttered to herself as she tried to steady her vision, which was currently impaired by her dizziness. She felt as if her body was hit by a bus, and only had one question:

"Where am I?"

No matter how much she tried, the words never came out of her mouth. Bonnie would open her mouth slightly to find that she couldn't speak, and could hardly move. Her throat was incredibly dry, and her face felt tight; she searched around for some water, but could barely recognize the faces in front of her.

"Oh good, she's waking up!" Tiffany exclaimed. Bonnie cringed as her mother clapped excitedly, and her grandmother Abbot cheered. All the noises in the room sounded like intense, deafening echoes, but she tried to focus on the doctor's voice as she explained her current state.

"Seems like the sleeping pills wore off," she nodded. "She still may be in shock, so she may not speak right away. We'll release her when we feel that she's safe to leave."

"When will that be?"

"Honestly, Mrs. Pinciotti, we're not sure. It could be today, and it could be a few months from now. We just need to check a few things..." Bonnie tried to listen harder as the doctor mentioned something about "outpatient care" and "therapist", but the noise grew even more intolerable by the second.

She wished that she could just die.

 She spotted a sink just a few feet away from her, but it looked as if it were miles away. Bonnie took a deep breath as she tried to steady her vision and rise to her feet.

"Bonnie, be careful!" her mother exclaimed. She ignored her and stood up; feeling proud, she wore a faint grin on her face. But then, the room began to spin again and her heart monitor beeped rapidly as her heart rate rose. She fell back onto her bed, wishing she could make that one step without her body nearly failing on her.

 Her vision began to steady as a handsome doctor walked in, dressed in khakis and a very smart shirt. His demeanor was that of complete and utter professionalism; intimidating, yet reassuring. She smiled once again as he made his way towards her.

"If I could have a few minutes alone with Ms. Pinciotti..." he said in a calm, assertive manner.

"She's not speaking yet, Kevin. She may still be in shock." she warned.

"That's fine, Marissa. I just need to take a few notes."

They left, and soon it was only Bonnie and the handsome doctor. She let out a sigh of relief, as she felt a cloud over her head float away and her dizziness floating along with it. He brought her a glass of water as he took a seat by her bedside. She gulped it appreciatively and sat the glass by her nightstand.

"You don't have to talk, if you're not ready."

"I can talk," she said quietly. "My throat was just really dry."

"Well, I'm sorry to hear that. I know you're still recovering, so I won't force you to talk too much." he reassured. Bonnie nodded and smiled, but winced as the cracks in her lips begun to bleed slightly. He shook her hand as he introduced himself.

"My name is Dr. Kevin Clarke, but you can just call me Dr. Kevin. I'm assuming you are Ms. Bonnie Pinciotti?" he joked.

"You can just call me Bonnie."

"Well Bonnie, I haven't read too much of your file just yet. Can you tell me honestly why you did it? You have fame, a wealthy family, a boyfriend..."

"An ex-boyfriend." she muttered.

"And yet, life isn't so bad, right?" he asked. Bonnie scoffed and rolled her dry eyes.

"You of all people should know, Dr. Kevin, that money and fame doth not a happy person make. Truth is, for a long time, I was...a shell. To others, I looked fine, and that's how I wanted it to be. I didn't want people to think that I was suffering. I didn't try to kill myself because of a broken heart, or some dumb argument...I just wanted to really feel something other than indifference or anger."

"Well, that's...that's interesting." he stuttered, seemingly astonished.

"You're a therapist, aren't you? I'm sure this isn't the first case like mine you've seen."

"Not by a long shot, but I've never had a patient that so readily admitted it; especially after attempting suicide."

"Well I attempted it, and I lived, so I guess some higher being didn't want me to die yet, right?" she laughed. Kevin smiled as he took out his pen and notepad to jot down his notes.

"Do you have anything else that you want to get off your chest?"


 Michele closed her eyes and whispered a little prayer as she punched the numbers "815" into the box. It was her very first day of work, and although they chose her to play the lead, she felt undeserving and anxious. She prayed that her feet wouldn't give out on her, and this wasn't all a dream. She prayed she wouldn't wake up and find that none of this had happened.

"Name please."

"Michele Turner. I'm playing the part of Venezia Rojene."

"Come right in," the lady said.

 The gates opened as Michele felt her body shake with nervousness and excitement. She looked up at the sky and smiled, and took in the sights of the "base camp". There were about five trailers in this camp, filled with only the best of talent and the main characters from the film.

If Heaven were on Simearth, this would be it for her.

She noticed the director, Michael Rushnik, staring at her with an amused smile on his face. "He probably thinks I'm so green," she thought to herself as she blushed nervously. Michele cleared her throat and approached him with the most professionalism she could muster at the moment.

"Hi, you must be Michael, right? I'm Michele. I think I met you at the second callback. Anyway, sorry I'm late." she said sheepishly.

"It's no problem, really. It was just the first day, so all you missed was a table read and a 'getting to know each other' orientation. Anyway, welcome to the family Michele!" he beamed. "Well, I'd show you around, but I'm afraid I don't have much time. I have a staff meeting with the other writers and producers, just to go over the smaller details and make sure everything's in order. Your cast mates are all chatting over there if you'd like to go introduce yourself, and Alona Isabel, our stylist, will be sure to get your character's costumes ready."

"Um, before you go, can you tell me which trailer is mine?"

"Well, it was a basis of first-come-first-serve, and the only trailer left is that one." Michael pointed straight across to the empty trailer with her name on it.

"Of course, " she smiled nervously. "Thanks!"

"No problem. Guys, be nice to her! She's new." he yelled playfully to the rest of the cast. They all smiled and laughed politely, and Michele wanted to hide under a rock.

As she made her way towards her cast mates, she couldn't help but notice that everyone, with the exception of the stylist, was in-costume and looked great. Michele sighed regretfully before giving herself a mental slap on the hand; she just arrived at the trailer site of her first feature-length film, and a brilliant one at that. Now was not the time for insecurity and self-loathing.

Speaking of insecurity and self-loathing, she reminded herself to call Alex tonight before heading to bed.

"Hey, my name is Eva Sanchez! You must be Michele, right?" she smiled. Her movements were dramatic and her personality seemed to be as bright as her hair.

"Yep, that's me! Your costume looks great, by the way."

"Thank you! I know what you're thinking, and no, this isn't my real hair color. Alona felt that 'Melodie' was meant to be a redhead." she mocked. Alona glared playfully before speaking to Fatima again.

"And don't worry too much about being late on the first day, we tend to be pretty lax about that around here. Rehearsal days are a completely different story, though. Anyway, if you ever want to talk or anything like that, my trailer is right there."

"Thanks, Eva. I really appreciate it."

"Hey! You must be the person my character murders at the end of the movie," Fatima Rushnik joked. Michele stared at her with a confused face, uncertain if she should be laughing or insulted. Fatima noticed her face and immediately started apologize.

"Oh shit, sorry! My jokes suck, I know. They always seem to offend people. Anyway, I'm Fatima. I play Oldera Michitt. It's such a weird name, but it's a Champs Les Sims movie so I guess that makes it okay, right?"

"Fatima, you're overwhelming the girl." Eva laughed.

"No no, it's okay, I'm fine. I like Fatima's jokes." Fatima gave a satisfied grin before sticking her tongue out at Eva.

"You are all overwhelming the pretty lady with your childishness," he flirted. "Maybe you guys should go back to your trailers and leave the adults out here."

"And so, the great Luke DeManSkank strikes again." Eva smirked. Fatima giggled quietly as Luke glared at them.

"Hi Luke, I'm Michele." she said, trying her best to ground her voice. The Luke DePeche was right there, in the flesh, flirting with her. She simply couldn't believe it.

"Hello, Michele. Hey, doesn't that name mean 'beautiful' in some language?"

"I don't know, " she blushed. Eva rolled her eyes and made a "gag me" gesture and Fatima once again laughed.

"Okay guys, that's enough fun. I need Michele for a costume fitting." Alona demanded.  The rest of the cast reluctantly went back to their trailers for the night, since the call time for the next day was at 4 in the morning.

 Michele was rendered speechless as she walked into the stylist trailer. She was expecting style and decadence, but definitely not to this degree. All she could do was mutter a "wow" as she observed the make-up kits, racks of clothing and the never-ending shelves of shoes.

"It's great, isn't it?" Alona beamed. "I designed it myself. It's a tiny trailer so I couldn't fit much of my supplies in here, but I'd like to think that it's still rather classy. Now, let's get your costume out of the way."

"If you could imagine your character's ideal costume, what would she wear?"

"Well, it's a Champs Les Sims film, so I would go with something bohemian, feminine, and light."

"Bohemian, feminine, and light." she repeated to herself as she went through the racks of clothing. "Hmm, I think I have some things in my arsenal that fits your description." Alona went through all of her racks, shelves, and boxes while picking up random items to bring to Michele. She brought a black hair tie, a bottle of water, a comb, some make-up, a pair of sandals and a gorgeous beige dress with a necklace.

"So, what do you think?"

 "What do I think? It's gorgeous, that's what I think! It's absolutely perfect for Venezia, and I wouldn't mind wearing it myself." Michele giggled. She never thought that a little girl from Riverview would star in her own film, and have a professional renowned stylist ask her for her opinion. She was so happy, she could cry...but she didn't want to mess up the freshly applied eyeliner.

"I'm glad you like it! All I have to do is do a few adjustments and you should be free to go."

After a long but pleasant first day of work, Michele made her way up the trailer steps to get some sleep. She didn't exactly remember which trailer Michael pointed to, but after a game of "eenie meenie miney moe", she decided that this trailer was more than likely hers.

"Ugh, all I want to do is change into my pj's and..."

 Michele froze as she saw a nearly naked Luke in her trailer, watching her TV. Once again, she wasn't sure how to react. All she knew is that a part of her wanted to join him on that couch.

"Michele, you have a fiance." she reminded herself. "You love him very much. Don't mess this up because of a sexy actor." she drew in a deep breath as she opened her mouth to say the exact same words that came out of his.

"What are you doing in my trailer?"

"W-what? Aren't you in my trailer?" she said in disbelief.

"Um, nope. Your trailer is the one you passed to get to mine."

"Oh. Oh, fuck." she swore. "I am so, so sorry."

"It's fine. Hey, why don't you join me? I was getting lonely anyway."

" That's a very pretty outfit," he smiled, trying to break the ice.

"Thanks. Alona picked it out as Venezia's costume."

"You know, I don't think they could have chosen a better actress to play the part." Michele smiled politely and stared at the candle, trying not to cry. She twiddled her thumbs and looked anxiously around the room.

"What's wrong, cupcake?"

"I'm just worried, I guess. The biggest project I've ever done was a national commercial for Bigbucks Warehouse, and yet here I am working on a feature-length film with some of the biggest names of this town. What if I completely ruin the film?"

 Luke came over to her side of the couch and held her to him. "Oh, that's just first timer's guilt. We all run across it at some point. Listen, sweetheart; just give us your best and it will show. At the end of the day, that's all we can do. It'll all work out on its own." he said as he rubbed her back.

Michele didn't exactly know where this was going, or if it was good or bad; but either way, she was under Luke's spell. He was sweet, sensitive, funny, toned...

She would definitely have to be careful around this one.


 "Oh good, you're here. Come on in, take a seat. I was just finishing up." Bonnie sighed as she made her way into the therapist's office for the first time, while feeling as sheepish as a teenager who got caught texting in class.

"So, how is the psych ward treating you?"

"They're giving me medicine for my headaches, so those are gone. I'm still getting used to the nightly checks, the horrid food, the invasion of privacy, and the semi-rude staff; but you know how that goes." she smiled.

"They told me you bit an orderly." Kevin said with a stern look on his face. Bonnie grimaced as she nodded her head.

 "Well, yeah...but it was self-defense! He kept calling us worthless lunatics and he sent my roommate into hysterics. He had it coming."

"Bonnie, biting people is never a solution."

"I'm just...I'm not crazy. I'm perfectly sane, and I hate it when people make me feel as if I'm anything but. I know I lost my temper, but I couldn't help it."

"Well then, this probably won't help matters." he sighed regretfully.

 "Bonnie, I've been looking into your file, and it seems you have a family history of mental breakdowns, emotional instability, kleptomania, and insanity; sometimes the symptoms go into remission, and sometimes...well...they don't. I think you're suffering from some sort of mental...'issue', but I'm not sure what at this point." he explained.

Bonnie blinked repeatedly and opened her mouth to form a coherent sentence, but again, she fell silent. This time, however, her silence was due to genuine shock.


"I thought you were already aware of this, ma'am. Your early ancestors from Champs Les Sims had a history of this behavior, and were often unwilling participants of torturous 'experiments' which only made their ailments worse. I had to do a report on your ancestors for my thesis," he chuckled. He noticed the scowl on Bonnie's face and cleared his throat.

"The experiments seemed to have ended somewhere around the third generation, or in other words, your grandmother's generation. I'm not quite sure how she escaped the compound, but she did; and she started a new life here in Sunset Valley. I'm sorry you had to find out this way. The good news is, there are medications available for most mental conditions, so you'll still be able to live a normal life..."

"But...I'm not crazy. Depressed? Sure. But crazy? No." she laughed in disbelief.

"I never said you were crazy, Bonnie. Crazy is dismissive. What you are is mentally unstable, which is a dangerous place to be. Tell me, have you ever heard voices inside or outside of your head that were not your own?"

"Sometimes, but only when I'm really depressed or really happy. Doesn't everyone?" she mumbled nervously.

"No, I'm afraid not. What do these voices say to you? Are they mean? Are they nice?"

"I'm not crazy." she insisted as she rose from her seat and inched her way towards the door.

"Bonnie, I realize you're in shock right now..."

"Stop it, just stop it!" Bonnie screamed. She leaped out of her chair and ran out of the room, slamming the door behind her and ignoring the frantic calls from Kevin. It was too much, too soon, and she felt as if she was losing her sanity again. Her eyesight narrowed into tunnel vision, her throat begun to close up, and all she could think of was running.

She had to get out.

 Kevin yelled out for the staff to chase after her as she darted through the front door. Some emergency workers hopped into a fire truck and began to chase after her. She hid behind every bush she could find and took every trail she came across to get them off her scent. She felt stupid, hopeless, worthless, scared...


 As she ran, she reprimanded herself for being so stupid as to run away in the first place. At the very least, she could have timed it better. The hardness of the sidewalk did her bare feet no favors as they begun to bleed. She yelped quietly, as the fear and tension began to take over her body. She was shaking, and struggling to stay upright. Her body was exhausted, and sent waves of pain throughout her legs with every step she took. The only thing that kept her from crying was her determination not to pass out.

But it was too late to stop. She knew they would find her and probably bring her back to that awful place, so she continued to run wherever the unforgiving sidewalks would lead her.

And to her surprise, it led to the place she needed to be.


 "You know what I really want?"


"A 'Beast'," Ella whispered wistfully.

"You want a motorcycle? Really?!"

"Yeah, why?

"Nothing at all, but you don't seem like a motorcycle type of girl."

"Well, I'm full of surprises." she winked.

"That's for sure."

"So, how are you doing? Are you okay?"

"Yeah, why wouldn't I be?" she shrugged.

"Well, I don't know. I guess I thought you'd be stressed with all the events that have occurred over the past few weeks."

"You know, life is way too short to stress out about small stuff like that. Right now, I'd rather just sit here with a cute guy on my arm and enjoy this movie."

"Sounds good to me," he laughed as he gave her a peck.

The doorbell rang and Ella reluctantly got up to answer it. "I swear, if it's another one of those journalists I'm gonna kick some nuts."

"What if it's a girl reporter?"

"I'll still kick her." she joked.

 "Eric?" she asked, not believing her eyes. She hadn't seen Eric since the day she moved away from Bridgeport, and to be honest, she hadn't really thought about him since then either. He "changed" his style slightly, true to his word, which impressed her.  He also seemed to be doing well with his band.

"Hey, dollface! The band and I are touring here for a month, so I thought I'd do some sleuthing and find out how my favorite blonde is doing." Ella laughed nervously and extended her hand for a shake, but he simply scoffed and shot it down.

"I haven't seen you in a year, Ella. I think I deserve a hug."

Ella ran into her arms and tried not to cry from happiness and confusion. "Oh Eric, I missed you so much! Everything has been so horrible since I arrived."

"Yeah, I heard. Trouble seems to follow you."

"I know, and this time, it followed me straight to my doorstep." she sighed. Why, of all the opportunities for Eric to come down and visit her, did it have to be when she was finally settling into her life in Sunset Cove and with Jordan? Why did the sight of him always make her second-guess herself? Why is it that every time she manages to repair her life, something or someone comes along to screw it up?

"Are you okay, beautiful?" he whispered.

"Yes, I'm fine." she nodded. "So, wanna meet my boyfriend?"


 "Bonnie? What are you doing here? Aren't you supposed to be..." she trailed off. Her daughter's psychiatric hospitalization was still hard for her to accept, but she'd rather have her stay in the "nut house" than dead. She bit her lip as her daughter began to cry hysterically.

"Oh, dear, it's okay. You took your medicine, right? And you're cooperating with the staff?"

"Mom, I ran. They were saying all this stuff about Daddy and Grandma and I just..." she sobbed and convulsed violently, turning mute once again. Her eyes were beet red, and her bloodied feet looked horrifying. Tiffany tried to contain her disgust as she consoled her daughter.

"It's okay Bon Bon, we all have our lows. You're safe here with us, okay?" Bonnie nodded her head as she sniffled quietly. "Now, why don't you go shower and get some food, hmm? Does that sound good? We also have some hydrogen peroxide in the bathroom for your feet. Usually we use rubbing alcohol, but hydrogen peroxide is less toxic."

Bonnie sighed as her mother spoke to her as a two-year old, and apparently started baby-proofing the house to confirm her suspicions. "Mom, I'm not crazy. I was just a little depressed." she said slowly, focusing on the words.

"Of course dear, Dr. Kevin explained everything. Now go on and change out of that ratty gown."

Tiffany sighed as she walked into the living room to tell her husband about the arrival of their daughter. Shortly after Bonnie ran away, Dr. Kevin called to warn them that she might try to stay here, and that if she did arrive here, it would be in Bonnie's best interest if they were to call and send her back.

"I don't know if we should do it Tiff, I mean, we're the only ones she has left. Her friends have ditched her and her sister stole her boyfriend. Sending her back would betray her trust, and what if she decides again?" Jack whispered quietly.

"Jack, if she's at the hospital, where she belongs, then they can prevent another you-know-what attempt and quickly come to her aid if she goes through with it. We don't have that here. If she goes back, they'll put her on some nice meds, release her and we can pretend this never happened."

"Medication doesn't solve everything-"

"Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to call Dr. Kevin." she interrupted. Jack scowled as she picked up the phone and dialed his number.

"You realize that if you do this, she'll never forgive us, right?"

"Oh poo," she said sarcastically. "I'd rather have my daughter pissed at me than dead, or worse."

"What's worse than death?"

"I just...I don't want her doing anything foolish to make the rest of the family look deranged. That's all, dear."

"So that's what you're really doing this for, isn't it? It's all about the 'image'."

"You're only defending her because she's a loon!" she screamed. Jack's jaw dropped as her eyes narrowed into slits of anger.

"I-I can't believe you just said that..."

"I will not apologize for protecting this family." Tiffany whispered furiously, paying no mind to his embarrassment. "Bonnie isn't stable and this family isn't either. She's going back, and that's final."


 "You're home early, Dr. Kevin."

"I know. There was a situation at the hospital, so I got to go home early." he explained.

"A situation?"

"One of my patients is a mentally unstable socialite, and she fled the psych ward. The entire staff is going crazy trying to catch that girl."

"Hmm, a crazy socialite in the psych ward, eh? What's she in for, a juice addiction?" she joked.

"Patient confidentiality, sweetheart." he smiled.

 "Well whatever the reason, I'm glad you're home." Christy leaned in to kiss her husband after a long day of work. Christy Clarke was originally a client of his, who visited him regularly to help control her multiple neuroses. She's still a little skittish, but her symptoms have improved tenfold. Not that the woohoo doesn't help, of course.

"So, how's my little Trisha?" he cooed while kissing his daughter on the head.

"Ugh, noisy. Nothing new. She seems to be very happy that Daddy's home, though." Kevin grinned widely as he watched his daughter shove pureed peas into her nose. "It's amazing how little kids can do some of the grossest things and still manage to make onlookers adore them with one look."

"You're just a giant softie."

"So, about this socialite chick..."

"Patient confidentiality."

"Well, c'mon! I'm your wife!" she joked. "Just tell me. I promise I won't tell a soul."

"Have you heard of the Pinciottis?"

"Which one? Political Pinciottis or Sketchy Pinciottis?"

"Both of them. They're two sides of the same coin."

"Figures. I always thought our political leader was sketchy. Anyway, what about them?"

Kevin cleared his throat as he debated whether or not he should divulge such scandalous and personal information about the Pinciottis. He sighed as he chose his wife over his integrity, and began informing her on the various mental obstacles the Pinciottis have faced.

"Lord Sponges on Ice, that is scandalous!" she gasped. "You know what? Someone should write a book about those people. Now I know why I always got an eerie vibe from Mayor Pinciotti. And there's so little information on them, too. I mean, after nineteen years we're just finding out that Jack Pinciotti had an illegitimate child?! How does that happen? What other secrets are they holding? I bet they-"

"This is exactly what I was afraid of, Chris." he groaned. "I don't want you to dig too deeply into this, especially when my patient is in such a fragile state. I understand you've been looking for that nonfiction goldmine...but this isn't it."

"Fine, I'll spare your stupid patient."


"I give you my word," she huffed. Trisha began to wail loudly as she shoved her food onto the ground. "It's your turn." Christy said, walking away.

Kevin sighed as he grabbed their child from the high-chair and put her on the floor to play with her dolly. Then, he felt a sudden vibration in the pocket of his khakis.

"Dr. Kevin Clarke." he answered.

"Thank you for calling, Mrs. Pinciotti. You're doing the right thing. I'll alert the hospital staff immediately."


Chapter Commentary here.                                                   Next Episode: Goodbye, Apathy  >>


  1. I feel bad for Bonnie with all the things going on around her. Great job at those pictures when she had just awoke in the hospital and the writing was so descriptive -- so good.

    Your characters are amusing and we cannot predict the storyline which means it's very good.

    Can't wait for more. <3

  2. Hi MJ!

    Yeah, this "year" will not be an easy one for Bon Bon. Thank you! I'm glad the pictures and the descriptions translated well. :D

    I'll probably drop some hints along the way, but they surprise even me sometimes. For instance, when Ella was hugging Eric, I wanted her to have a happier expression (or at least look less like a sad puppy), but I just decided to go with it anyway.

    Thanks for reading! <33333

  3. Oh man, at least they got to Bon Bon in time and she's alive. But what a way to wake up and what a thing to find out about your family when you finally do wake up.

    Hmm, Eric appears out of the blue while Ella is settling in with Jordan.

    Poor Bon Bon, home wasn't the place you needed to be after all.

    Hmm, the Doctor's wife is going to be writing a juicy non fiction book soon. YOu can tell.

    Good stuff.

  4. Hi PiB! :D

    Eric's arrival is definitely a little fishy.

    I don't think she'll ever fully forgive or trust her parents after this, but at least she'll get the help she needs at this time. Possibly.


    Thanks for stopping by! :)

  5. Whee!! Six Degrees is back and goin--and man, I can see why you like Bonnie so much. She is... interesting, to say the least--as is her family. And her family history, apparently! I look forward to reading more about that, to say the least. ;) I have very funny feelings about where this may be headed, lol...

    Woo woo for Michele! She seems to be settling into her new role splendidly... except for that flirtatious Luke, who had better keep it in his pants or he'll have to deal with The Kaleeko. >:[

    Ella, wanting a motorcycle. HA. That is all I have to say to that. XD That girl is so bizarro sometimes! Hehe.

    And here we see more connections being made with the psychiatrist--I have a bad feeling about his wife. Also makes me sad she dismissively called Bonnie 'stupid' even though she was a former patient herself--goes to show she probably won't be respecting Bonnie's privacy, much.

    Wonderful start to the season, Cheezy--I'm getting a whiff of where things are headed, and it is no where good. Delicious. ;) Hehe! <3

  6. The Pinciottis are an odd bunch, certainly. And no matter how hard Bonnie tries to act normally, she's a Pinciotti through and through.

    *snickers* We'll see what happens in the third chapter, maybe.

    Ahaha, I know! It was such an odd want. Her hair would probably stick to her lip gloss and fly all over the place if she rode one. Eric has a motorcycle, though... ;)

    I think Christy doesn't really care about Bonnie's feelings and privacy as much because she's a celebrity, and similarily to real life, celebrities in the sims are treated as if they have no privacy; and certainly no feelings. It's de...siminizing, lol. To Christy, Bonnie's just a huge faker looking for a headline.

    Yes, this will be a pretty dark chapter. I'm excited. :D
