• What she says: I’m fine.
  • What she means: Miranda and Andrea are about to kiss because Miranda is losing her famous control on her feelings but you’re talking to me so now I have to pretend I’m interested in you however I have not seen you write any Lily and the Crown or Ninety Days to Glory or Fur? No Thanks, I’d Rather Go Naked! or Run Like the Devil or Into the Fire or Losing Miranda or Lost and Found or Lost Treasures or A (not exactly) Storybook Romance or…, so until you do I’d appreciate it if you leave me alone so I can immerse in my daily Mirandy feels, thank you.

Emily Charlton has had what some might call a phenomenal decade. She would never presume to use those actual words, because while she might have embraced many things about this side of the pond, anything more than mild self-deprecation still leaves her feeling faintly nauseated.

National City is honestly the kind of West Coast hellhole that has Emily reaching for the factor 60 on a compulsive basis.
