It looks like a few glitches slipped through the editing process :(
"I yawned, my fingers itching to touch an art supply without Ms. Steinberg screaming or popping an apoplectic blood vessel."
I have only ever used apoplectic/apoplexy to describe rage/fury but a quick look at an online dictionary says that an apoplexy is similar to an aneurism, so an apoplectic blood vessel would be one that has already started haemorrhaging into a nearby organ.
"Thus, without fail, every Sunday, my mom chaffered me downtown ..."
Chauffeured? Chaffering for something is bargaining/haggling for it.
"One of the footfalls of not having access to a car was that I couldn’t go off campus for lunch. Another footfall was that even if I did have a car and I could drive, ..."
I think you meant 'pitfall' instead of 'footfall', but a (metaphoric) pitfall is usually a hidden danger that only someone who has (metaphorically) walked the path, and fallen in, would know about.

It's never a pain to read this! Don't ever suggest that! lol You are a brilliant writer! I just love how you use vocabulary, it's adds so much more to your skill! Jared and Melfina are so cute! I love them to death! I so want to know what the note said! aww, she just HAD to throw it away, didn't she? lol I spent a whole hour reading this! Instead of studying for exams... but I enjoyed every minute of it! You are extremely talented! I'm so glad you use your talents, because it has really paid off for you! Keep up your great job! And don't worry about taking your time; time is the key for a brilliant piece of work, and this is definitely well-written!
| Ledia chapter 5 . 5/18/2003
whoa girl..this story is just getting better and better.
I like this new guy Cooper(artist men are just my type*sigh with dreamy looks*),and I wonder what's gonna happen between them..when Melfina rambled and rambled,I couldn't hold it,I was laughing out loud and my brother was looking at me liKE*has she finally gone crazy?*
I like her character,she's not that strong girl who can deal with whatever happens to 's an ordinary one and that's what I like,you just can't help but sympathize with her and understand her feeling.I can't face yelling people too,some poeple have the ability to give you 100 insults in one breath and honestly I can't compete with that _
so now there's this mysterious guy and Jared.I like Cooper(because he is artis you know,did I tell you that?)but...I can't help but like Jared more,he's too sweet
I have many tests these days but when I checked my email,I was so happy to see that you updated and reading this story was like a break to me from all the stress of this stupid,horrible tests...so thanks _
and I shouldn't forget the last famouse line..YOU HAVE TO UPDATE ASAP...please ~_

hey ... that is a very good story.. love it...
| Misodity chapter 5 . 5/18/2003
Hm, well, I'm REALLY enjoying this, it's been very good so far... Enjoyable and man, I like the Jared guy. the art guy is... well, i don't like him much, he's annoying to me.
| IntricatePain chapter 5 . 5/17/2003
Can I just tell you how amazing this story is. Your writing produces such vivid pictures, one can't help but be with each and every character on some level. I hope Mel will see Jared's "true" feelings and vice versa. Hope you update soon.
| Zabella chapter 5 . 5/17/2003
Awesome fic...Love the characters and the situations they find thems elves in!
| grrrL chapter 1 . 5/17/2003
hey girl! When are you gonna update? i'm crossing my fingers you answer this question with a new chapter!
| Victoria chapter 1 . 3/7/2003
Hey! that was good. I really liked it. I wish I were #2, I'd be overjoyed. I guess she has her reasons though. You need to continue with the story. I assume that Melfina and Jared get together. She needs to kick Andrews booty, that dirty, no good, rotten, son of nevermind. I hope that you decide to continue. Tell me about your other stories too. I did only read the first chapter so far. I'll read the rest though don't worry.
