Social Death or Social Resurrection?
Things don’t always go as planned. Especially in situations involving me and Matty. It was the first time I listened to my instincts. And not only did Matty refuse to introduce me to his brother, but I got a door slammed in my face. Even in private he was shutting me out. Where was the Grim Reaper when I needed him?
Was it because of my stigma? He was even embarrassed for his drunk brother to see me? I needed answers. I was tired of being Matty’s secret. As I walked to my very public death, I couldn’t help but wonder: Did I just kill my private relationship with Matty McKibben?
Luckily, I didn’t have much time to think about it because Jake was still dying to talk about our kiss and what it meant. He probably could have picked a better time than mid-blood squirt to confess that he had feelings for me. But when I thought about it…I definitely had feelings too. Were they feelings for Jake? Or was it the feeling you get right before you die?
Dead Stacey ended up living, thanks to a brilliant intervention by Drunk Natalie aka Tamara. I was sure playing Dead Stacey would result in social suicide. But instead, my reputation was resurrected. The event was a hit. I was applauded. And Matty gave me a VERY public hug. For the first time…I got the attention I was looking for.
