What crap. She was just getting her pride back by saying this. I doubt she really meant it. Am I willing to let her ‘help’ me?
She went on.

“Yeah” I said “I’m already pretty optimistic. I mean, isn’t it just great I lost every friend I ever had? Isn’t it fantastic that my father’s gone? Or what about my brother? We all just love his leukemia!”
“Your opening up”
That’s all she could say.
