Ali knew she and Cory had never really reached out to Lucy and Todd, due to Lucy being Cory's ex, but she showed up with food when she heard about the break in.
"Where's Lucy?" She wasn't at the apartment with Todd. Perhaps they'd kept her in the hospital.
"Her house, barricaded in her room." Todd was far from being his happy-go-lucky self. He was serious. possibly a little scared, but he took the macaroni casserole and dug right into it as if he were famished. "I can't make her see that we need to stick together in this, you know. She just wants to be alone now. I'm so afraid for her to be alone."
"Is someone after her?" Ali was puzzled. It was just strange. Nothing like this ever happened in their sleepy little town. She couldn't think of someone busting in like that.
Todd shook his head, "She's her own worst enemy." He looked at Ali then as if he wanted to tell her some truth about Lucy. Perhaps she had multiple personalities or worse. Something, not quite right about her.
"We should help them." She told Cory later.
"I'm not helping them." Cory looked at her as if she'd lost it. 'Is this an April Fool's joke?"
"What if she's mental, Cory?" Ali let slip. She couldn't help but think it.
"Then we should stay far away. We've got more than our share to deal with. Don't we?" He was talking of his grandmother who always had strange tales coming out of her mouth on a daily basis. "Don't need anymore crazy in my life."
But still, Ali couldn't help but want to help. Didn't he know, she liked crazy people.
