You know? Its honestly scarily true that the scariest addicts can be friends, they can convince others to try and get them hooked on the stronger stuff as well. Word of mouth is the strongest form of advertisement. And we always can trust our friends. Idk this hits close to home.

He should really just spit it out. Honest is always the best policy. Better to look like a moron than a crook.

I used to do karate, and there was a black belt there with only one arm. He once admitted he mostly did it because he thought it was really cool to be a one armed black belt, and damn, he was right

I friend-ship these two so hard. Its great to have friends with simmilair interests, but i've found it can be way more interesting to have completly different interests.
Oh no. Oh no. No. Daisy you need to calm down. You need to take a deep breath and calm down. Amber isn't doing this to purposefully hurt you; she's doing it to try and heal. Just take a step back and give her some space.I am afraid that what might happen next is going to hurt both of them, a lot. I hope I'm wrong.

I can understand Amber needing to stand up for herself and take care of herself. I applaud her for the decision. And I can also understand Daisy's need to protect someone, especially with what happened to her brother I'm guessing. I'm just afraid that Daisy's anger is going to cause her to do something they will both seriously regret. :(
Why does carry that weight immediatly make me think off and miss cowboy bebop

Very cute but also definitly a red flag
Yeah, and Amber's accusation that Daisy was just looking for some broken soul to "take care of" for her own ego isn't entirely true, either. It's true to a degree, but initially Daisy just saw Amber as a "muse" that could help her with her art.

She later learned that she was able to be her quirky, weird self around Amber and Amber didn't shy away or look down on her for it like most would, which is WHY Daisy wanted to become friends with Amber.

This entire time, Daisy, having finally found a friend she could be herself around, wanted to do everything she could to be a good friend to Amber. It sounds like Daisy hasn't really had any friends before, so she doesn't really know how to be a good friend and just figured if she took care of her and tried to protect her and make her happy that everything would be OK.

Daisy's lie to Amber was kind of a heat of the moment thing, driven by her desire to see Amber happy and cheer her up after she was upset because of her Mom, but Amber's now distrustful nature caused her to question everything Daisy's done.

No one's perfect. Amber especially. Daisy did the best job she knew how to do to be a friend to Amber and helped Amber out of a very dark place and even saved her life. And Amber's kind of repaid Daisy with essentially exiling her out of her life here.

Also, Amber being willing to forgive Freya "because they had been friends for years", even though Freya admitted to having resentment towards Amber for YEARS and only reached out to Amber again because of Daisy's involvement with her and her own guilt while not being willing to try and make things work with Daisy simply because they had only been friends for a few weeks is really really harsh.

Plus, Freya giving alcohol to not only a raging alcoholic's daughter, but someone who is on a bunch of medication and was not medically cleared to even leave the hospital in the first place was a REALLY stupid idea that Amber only went along with because she wanted to be friends with Freya again for some reason.

Daisy is still best girl and my heart breaks for her.
It’s all freya fault, why isn’t Amber yelling at her
@Sol: I agree completely. If Daisy hadn't been there for Amber, Amber might not have survived the pneumonia at all. Sandra brushed off the pneumonia like it was nothing, her dad wouldn't have known without Daisy, and Amber herself kept acting like it was nothing to worry about. I understand Amber has her reasons for doing this. She's been treated like crap for too long. Daisy is just the wrong person to lash out at.

I have my doubts that things will go back to any kind of good between Daisy and Amber, and it breaks my heart.
Amber, Daisy truely care about you
