oh no! did the major supports for the gym suffer critical damage in the freak earthquake that will later be linked to fracking in the counties’ unincorporated area? the very same gym where the 1ST dance Melissa was ever going to have SHOULD have been with Padma, but Padma had to rush to her grandmother’s out-of-state bedside to care for her through a STROKE that the family keeps hush-hush because grandma, a self-made woman when grit and rep were all a woman could count on, has her pride and thus no explanations were coming to mend poor Melissa’s bruised tender heart? does Padma’s experience from the PR company she FOUNDED but was then OUSTED by – who handled and still does the fracker’s public image – let use her knowledge to get the resources for the town needs to shore up the gym – saving the school district from crippling DEBT? does Melissa’s construction company JUST barely get the space done in time for the EOY dance? do they finally get to have the dance that seals the loveisnotalie fate their lives were destined for? did it? does it!? will it?!
