All your lie you wanted to be somebody impor-tant. Somebody who could escape this stupidsmall town, you know? Tat’s why you were abeauty queen as a teenager. Tat’s why you’re alawyer now. Any day now, your career will takeo and you’ll nd a way out o Manna, Kansas.But orces keep pulling you back. Lack o expe-rience kept you rom nding a job in New York.Poverty brought you back to your home town.And your ill ated relationship with DwightDickerson has kept you here or too long.What the hell did you ever see in Dwight Dickerson? You guess it wasbecause he had big dreams, too. He wants to get rich and move out o Kansas. But Dwight’s plans are just stupid ‘get rich quick’ schemes. I they ever worked, he wouldn’t be a hotel desk clerk.You already were annoyed with Dwight’s shiless behavior beore heconvinced you to move in with him. Somehow in the moving day shue, he managed to run his truck over your tiara. Te one you gotrom winning second place in the Miss Kansas pageant. It’s stupid,right? Just a crown rom a meaningless contest judged purely on looks.But it really was special to you. Tat tiara symbolized your ambition tosucceed, your past as a champion and your uture hope to escape out o Kansas once more. And it was the last straw in the relationship.Not that Dwight understood why you were so upset. Tis was his nalailure aer a long series o second chances. You’d had enough. Youmarched right out to the truck ull o all your stu and drove away.So now Dwight got his riend into some sort o stupid mess. Dwightdidn’t explain much over the phone, but apparently Underwood is inbig trouble with Sheri Deharo over a erret? Weird. Who knows.Underwood recently inherited the Manna Hotel rom his grandparent,along with control o the Victory Electrical Cooperative. Underwoodwouldn’t get into trouble on his/her own. Tis has got to be Dwight’sault somehow.Aer dumping Dwight, you moved in with your old riend Howard.You just needed some time away rom Dwight to sort things out.Howard’s been very helpul and understanding.You’ve come to a conclusion. You’re done with Dwight. What’smore, you need to get back at him. Cause him the sort o pain thathe caused you. You need to show Dwight that you’ve moved onalready. Found somebody else. Find somebody to have a fing with,then let Dwight know that it happened.Tere’s gotta be somebody around here that will ll that role, right?Any guy will do, so long as he’s not Dwight and preerably not gay.
