Chapter 9: Hints and Indications

written by anonymous author

added on: 10 Nov 1999 - based on characters created by Winnie Holzman

Rickie: (looking nervously at Angela) I can't Angela, its not, like, up to me to say.

Angela: I guess I was expecting that. I mean, its OK. I just, I'm so tired of living in this nervous oblivious state. Why can't people just treat you honestly, you know?
