downside

Rosco couldn't say it was over, but the fifteen minutes of fame had probably passed. If he could call it that. No one had a thing to say. Not even Kal who looked pretty bummed to Rosco. this was pretty much a mute subject.

Even Karrie was being quiet.

Derrick just shot him a look that this better not be some stupid drama intervention. But they left. All that remained was Andy who'd taken it the hardest.

"I don't get it?"

"Yeah, well, she wasn't as into as much as you might have thought," Rosco shrugged. "I can talk to Rachel if you want."

"Would you?"

"I guess, I could." Rosco shrugged, not thinking much of it. "You miss her, huh?"

"Yeah, I'm not exactly welcomed home and my parents won't let me stay with them. I stayed at the YMCA, last night."

"Bummer," Rosco gave him a pat on the back, "But you're still working, aren't you?" Rosco wanted to know.

Andy nodded.

"Why did you ever want to get mixed up with her?" Rosco asked about the whole Emily/ Crystal thing.

"Cause, she hot." He sort of laughed.

"Yeah, well, see what shit like that can do to you?"

Andy lost what laugh he had then and left.

Rosco didn't believe it was over. It would never be over with Crystal. He guessed. Emily had to get back on her meds. She definitely needed some sort of treatment.

Defenitly some treatment - Rosco (and Emily) will never be truly happy while Crystal's around :)

I love how this is evolving.

Part of me likes Crystal. Probably because she just seemed to waltz in and turn everything upside down.

Thanks for the comments, and hope you get over your sniffles.
