Maybe she has news about the girls.

I uploaded it to my script but I get no error!

the script looks fine, maybe youre having bad wifi or something thats not allowing it to save, thats always what I thought unable to parse meant

These types of errors tend to be a problem with your browser rather than with your code.

Maybe you could try deleting your chapter (copy your script into somewhere else, like word or google docs) and just save it with a background and a pause command. After that, paste your script into the chapter again and re-save it.

Whenever I seem to have these problems, I normally just have to disconnect and reconnect to the WiFi, and then try saving the script again!

Thanks everyone! So sorry it took me all day to respond, but you all were basically right! It’s back to working after I reloaded the webpage. Again, thank you everyone!!
