Ha, we have a stalker!
The first time she rang Joe picked up. He told her Ailz was out (and if she was watching she'd have known it was a lie.) The second time I picked up. And was taken off guard by the flood of apologies. I was expecting recriminations, self-justification- not this.
I forget the exact wording, but she was begging to be taken back.
I blocked her questions. I didn't give encouragement. But neither did I tell her to get lost.
I should have done, I should have done.
"I'll ring again in a couple of days," she said. "Maybe Aileen will be able to talk to me then."
She has convinced herself that Ailz is having a funny turn and will come to her senses and be her friend again.
I had no idea she was so attached......
