Dear Samantha,

Things were going great between me and Alex until last Friday.  We'd developed a friendship that was on the verge of turning romantic when who should arrive but Nicole Kendall!  In three days she'd ruined my relationship with Alex. 

Now I'm involved with Logan, Nicole's brother, but to be honest, Alex is the one for me.

Tonight, we're all going to a drive-in to see some dumb horror movie.  I don't really want to go but I have to, to keep tabs on Alex and Nicole.  Well, that should be a fun-packed evening... 

Tell you all about it next week. 

Love,  Cathy
