Be careful who you portray

After their big softball tournament win, two best friends Roxanne and Trixxi both had news to share so it was decided that a sleepover at Trixxi's would be the night's plans. Its 7:30 on a cold Friday night that Roxanne arrives at Trixxi's house with pizza and champagne. After finishing dinner and catching up they decide it's time to share their news. Trixxi insists that as the guest Roxanne should share her news first. Speaking extremely slow Roxanne remorsefully explains that she had been secretly dating Trixxi's boyfriend Chad for the past year. Trixxi whimpers and informs Roxanne that she has recently been diagnosed with an extreme case of bipolar disorder and has not yet learned how to manage her anger. Trixxi's melancholy mood has evolved to outrage with anger and begins to tell Roxanne off. Roxanne grabs her purse and heads for the door; as soon as the knob is turned Roxanne is knocked unconscious with a wine bottle opener and is dragged to the bathroom.

Its 10:00 pm as the doorbell to Trixxi's house is rung by a tall, brown haired, handsome Chad clueless to the drama that just occurred and the drama that was soon to unfold. Trixxi answers the door and as Chad sits down offers him a glass of wine. Chad kicks up his feet and makes himself at home; Trixxi pours an aged bottle of Chardonnay and includes a special ingredient just for her beloved boyfriend Chad. Trixxi and chad indulge their glasses of wine and about 10 minutes later Chad experiences nausea. Chad races to the bathroom where he finds the very familiar face of Roxanne passed out on the floor. Before he could react Trixxi grabs the bat out of her softball bag and beats Chad and Roxanne to death. Trixxi locks the bathroom door packs her toothbrush, 1 outfit and a pair of combat boots and leaves her house.

One week later after the smell of Roxanne and Chad's decaying bodies has reached beyond the house, they were found along with a bloody, dented bat, open box of rat poisoning, empty bottles of champagne and chardonnay and a bloody wine bottle opener. The bipolar Trixxi was found 6 months later working at a café in Ontario, Canada. She was charged with two murder charges and pleads insanity. The moral of this story is to be careful who you choose to portray as you never know the full truth of what one is dealing with.
