What do you get combining a moody taxidermist and an untrustworthy travel clerk?

Answer: A class 5 disaster.

Connor's life is turned upside down when Hailey shows up one day, proving that the phrase 'best friend' could be more thorny than one might think.

Now Connor needs to face the situation, before running out of options. But Hailey might have other plans. What do you get combining a lazy car valet and a horrible medical student?

Allison's life is turned upside down when Clara shows up one day, proving that the phrase 'wide space' could be more baffling than one might think.

Now Allison needs to face the situation, before running out of time. But Clara might have other plans. I'm self-loving and serene, though if you asked Natalie, she'd say I'm sneaky instead.

Well, who am I, a lowly interpreter, to tell her what to think?
