Dee: That's good. Emily: Yeah. I've got more friends than I can poke a stick at, now! You're back; and Olive and I've been keeping up the emails and internet chats; and now I think I'm making friends with Zoe! Dee: What! Zoe!? Emily: Um, yeah? Dee: You're hilarious! Emily: What makes you say that!? Dee: Just - you! You have the oddest taste in friends. You've got - well, me; you've got the girl who can't speak - and now someone actively suicidal! Emily: What about Markus and them? Dee: Wasn't that just because your hand was forced? Emily: My hand wasn't that forced! Dee: Would you have befriended them if not for Maddy and myself? Emily: Probably not, but I still chose people I did genuinely like! What, do you think I shouldn't make friends with Zoe? Dee: I dunno, I just - aren't you worried? Emily: Of course I'm worried about her. Dee: That's not what I mean, I mean... she might be a difficult friend to have.
