to tell you. It was velv, she felt intimidated by you. She
spiked your drink ok. I am so sorry Alice I did not know she
was like this anymore, she told me she changed she told me she
was different and going to be nice. But when someone new and
more beautiful than her comes along she gets jealous and
angry. Alice please do not say anything I dont want any
trouble.

was only faking being nice! I cannot believe it! Right, I am
going to sort this out.
