"You'll get everything you need. As of this moment, I am paying you, not Alex."
"Where is your laptop, Kieu?" Kristi sat down on the faded couch in the middle of her living room. "I've never seen you without it."
Kieu parked in an overstuffed chair faded red, sinking deep in the cushion. "Mom took it away. She said I needed to get out and meet real people. Go out with someone."
Kristi grinned. "You're in luck. I met these two guys who want to go meet up with me and a friend. You just have to dress up for dancing."
"Why not Blondie?" Kieu struggled to sit up in the chair. "And where is she?"
"She's working at her coffee shop." Kristi curled up on the couch. "I'm surprised you're not working somewhere."
Kieu gave up on her struggles, sinking further in the chair. "I made some good investments, apparently. And something I made is still paying royalties. Not sure what."
"That's good, no?" Kristi saw Ginger creeping up on the chair. "Your tuition is covered."
"I suppose." Kieu sighed. "Anyway, what was with the videos? Okay, the one from the back, that wasn't us at all. But the reception? That was us. Except there wasn't any us on screen."
