Don't Look Back: Part Two
(A Sadie Saga)
Sadie's Diary: September 8th, 2013

 September 8th, 2013
Dear Diary, 
                My artistic juices are really flowing at the moment!! I met Jewel's other housemate today - Cynthia Benton - and she was so so nice to me. It's so wonderful how everyone seems to trust in me, even though they don't know me much yet. It's doing great things for my confidence and I'm having such fun sketching pictures from the holograms that machine of Cynthia's father's produced. It's helped such a lot to have real subjects and Cynthia promised she wouldn't tell Topaz and the rest that I got out of bed at all. It bothers me a little that they're so trusting, when I'm still hiding so much but then again, I did make a brand new start when I left prison and rehab behind me, so I don't see why I need to broadcast everything I've done wherever I go. I'm a different Sadie now, so it will all work out okay. It's in the past.

The name Benton is kinda familiar to me, and when I was flicking through some of the magazines Topaz gave me to work from I found some mention of the Benton Family and their links to Starlight Music. I wonder if Cynthia is a relation of theirs or if it's just a coincidence? Seems odd to me if they are related that she chose to work for Phyllis Gabor and not her own relatives, but I suppose it depends on the situation. Maybe there's something I'm not seeing. Topaz has mentioned Cynthia more than once and I know they're good friends, so perhaps that's it. Maybe blood isn't always thicker than water.

One other thing bothers me a little bit, too. Much as I'm trying to tell myself that it was my fevered brain playing games with me, I'm still not sure that it was. I'm convinced that I saw that knife hit Cynthia straight on the arm and I'm certain it would've gone pretty deep and caused a lot of blood. Heck, I know enough about arm circulation now, I know where the veins are! But she didn't even have a scratch on her and she certainly didn't cry out in any pain. That was just strange to me, but I can't make any rational sense of it, so I guess I probably did imagine it. After all, if it had been me, I would probably have wound up shrieking and swearing, so I guess the logical answer is that it didn't hit her after all, and it just looked that way from where I was standing. My head is still muggy, after all.

Oh well. It doesn't matter much. The important thing is that Cynthia is really nice and sweet and I like her a lot.  If everyone in Los Angeles is as nice as her and the others, I won't be homesick long. I can't help thinking though about this meeting with Miss Gabor. I'm a lot better now and I gather she's impatient, so I suspect it won't be long before I'm there speaking to her. The more I hear about her the more frightened I am...please let her like my work!
Please let her help me stay in LA!!
