both love her, and attending schools, and hoping for perfect college experiences
when Mimi obtains University of Southern California, she feels like heaven,
and she meets a guy who is a graduate student from John Hopkins, and seems
showing special interests in her, consistently,
Mimi begins to date John Leggio, feeling timid about what she shall wear,
and what words she shall speak, when all of a sudden, John Leggio decides
to quit school for a year so that his mother gets well from sickness, becuace

and during a Christmas party, a lord called Morton hands her a full plate of food,
smiling, silent, and friendly

some sensitive eyes, but he will not harm her, at least when she remains non-offensive

very close and very famous, however, this is not what Mimi has expected, because

Eileen Bryce and Maxx Marshall, Meira shapiro and Eric Denise, Catalina Marks and
Aliza Weisberg, all of these folks come, always bring in energy and love to one
of them, telling others to support these two.
