When you found out about my secret side job, you were determined to find your friend. You're reacting differently, like it never mattered to begin with. I'm sorry Jess but I don't trust you right now. I think you already know what happened to Ashley Greeley -and on top of that, I think you don't hate Poppy solely for flirting with Chuck." & " Lydia left the room as Tiffany grew more curious about the mystery. She unwrapped the box cautiously -considering it could contain anything. A white rose, the symbol of their once dominant popularity was emblemed on the small lit. She gasped at the sight of her old necklace shining back at her -one she wore when she was seventeen and immature -innocently in love. Swept by the dark mind of her highschool sweetheart and bestfriend. It was something she hoped would remain secrete -forever in the time capsule they swore to never dig up again. When she looked closely, dry blood remained where it was when she had buried it over twenty years ago. It seems like secrets weren't meant to be kept hidden and trust was never meant to be kept...at all. "

"The tale of darkness, but also, of the brightness that lies beyond,
The tale of misjudgments, but also of amendments,
The tale of cruelty, but also of revolution,
The tale of eternal sufferings, but also of assurance,
The tale of derangement, but also of modification,
The tale of destruction, but also of construction,
The tale of eternal deterioration, but also of never ending improvement,
The tale of random decisions, but also of directed hardwork,
The tale of hierarchy, but also of true equality,
Welcome, to this tale of humanity's relationships,
Welcome, to the grand tale, of THE ANTONYM OF FRIENDSHIP."
