This is confusing.
It looked like Michelle was gone when Lauren got there. Now we find out that she made Lauren promise to keep her whereabouts a secret and she wants Lauren to get isome stuff to "Sally Ann." Who is Sally Ann?
This brings up a few issues. I realize that with all the intimate stuff that I know about Michelle, I don't know what she studied at the University, if she has siblings, or if she was considering grad school. Was she more likely to run to Las Vegas or Yale? She put up a Vegas image, but I recently have suspected that she was harboring a Yale intellect. I do hope that she will stay in touch with Lauren.
