bruised

Bella didn't take it well. Fish's little explosion. It was the first time he'd done something, exactly like this. Was he mad at her?

She didn't understand. Completely. He wasn't like this before. Or was he? And now he was just showing his true colors after all this time.

"Well, he has a point," Emily said after Bella poured out her heart over the matter. She was practically in tears. "You are pretty much on a throne of some sort and where is that really getting you, lately?"

"What is that suppose to mean?"

"It means, you have to try harder. You have start doing some things yourself. For other people." Emily was busy with the laundry that Bella had neglected to do. "You needs some self reliance instead of being just completely selfish."

"That makes no sense what so ever." Bella looked at her stunned.

"Wake up, sister, you are a bitch." Emily almost laughed. "Granted, you go into that party, people are gonna look at you, and think, no way am I speaking to her. And yeah, I'll probably get the same look, too. But I'm going. Not to cause anyone grief. Perhaps to show Archie, I do have friends. Or did. And maybe if they see me with him, maybe it'll smooth out. Some day."

Bella swelled a frown.

"You don't have to go, you know." Emily told her. "If you'd like, I'd take Gib. Maybe you just want to stay home and rest. All right."

"No. I have to go. I have to." Bella knew she did complain too much, but really she just couldn't get happy over night, now could she?

Sure she could; a little red wine & some chocolate always worked for me.

Cait, I'm so sorry I haven't been around. I'm writing a post now, about how busy I've been ^^
About "with or without you": A professional body waxer? Here on a street not so far away from our home a shop has opened, called "hairless in hannover" and yesterday for the first time I saw some people in it.
Fish is a cool guy. I hope so. I liked that speech he made to Bella. Go Fish!
Emily is a cool person too. She'll be liked for going to the party, even if she knows she doesn't have friends there. I have experienced this myself.
Let's see how Bella acts at the party.

I like diane's idea...wine can always make things a little more pleasant. Just don't over do it. I like Emily's lines, tool

Sometimes the best medicine is being told you're a bitch.
