LOULOU (talk_afraid)
How come you're all alone?

JENNA (talk_afraid)
Why are you guys talking to me.. we've never talked before.

LOULOU (talk_awkward)
Well we saw you standing here alone so we thought we'd give you some company..

JENNA (talk_arms_crossed_angry)
Look we're not friends so just back off and leave me alone!
The last thing I want right now is your sympathy.

CARLY (talk_angry)
FINE! Come on Loulou let's go. 

LOULOU (talk_sad)
If you ever want to talk about what happened.. 
I'm here for you Jenna

JENNA
What's wrong with me?

ALSO confused by how the choices work and act out scenes for both of these events. My character moves but is facing the wrong way and I don’t know how to fix that problem either…

Being new isn’t fun haha.

In which line the character is huge again? You need a dialogue before the choice. PM me so we can sort this out :wink:
