From: Sebastian Stebbins
I hope this owl actually finds you. I sent it to your brother’s house in France on the off chance that you’re actually there. That’s the last place I heard you were and I would absolutely hate to wear out this poor bird. If you’re already back in the country, I say you owe it an owl treat or two.
Where am I? Helga’s Hill, of course. How on Earth am I supposed to have any sort of housewarming without one of my favourite girls? Or, for that matter, with Barney looking as though someone has just kicked a puppy.
Come home, Stella. I want to hear all about your foray into the world of acting. Besides, what red-blooded male wouldn’t want you to talk dirty to him?
I’m back in Helga’s Hill, actually. I’m staying with Alicia so I can get to practices and the WWN. Haven’t gone out much beyond that. I don’t want to make things harder for
Ba anyone right now. My brother forwarded your letter using his owl, however. Yours is presumably being spoiled by my sister-in-law and considering never returning to you.
If you feel like chatting, come over. I can’t promise to be good company, but I’ll give it a go.
