UN - When did you say that you were available? I need to know ASAP!
ME - Who is this?
UN - What!? Come on, Kate. It’s me! Stop
pretending that you don’t know me.
ME - I’m not Kate. My name doesn’t even have a ‘K’ in it.
UN - I’m serious, Kate. We Have a mission
to complete! If we don’t, we’ll be
EXTERMINATED. Exterminated, Kate.
UN - If you don’t comply, I will come and
get you tomorrow.
ME - Um… Sorry, but you have the wrong number. I AM NOT KATE!!
UN - Yeah, real funny, Kate. I know it’s you.
Tuesday, January 7 ・ 7:48 p.m.
ME - So… This person keeps texting me and
talking about some mission. And being
exterminated. And they think that my name
is Kate. What should I do?
AJ - Why don’t you tell the person your actual
Name? Maybe then, they will know that you aren’t Kate.
ME - But, I already told this guy that I wasn't Kate! He already knows… I hope.
AJ - But he doesn’t know. Because you didn’t say
what your actual name was. Now, for all he knows,
you ARE Kate.
ME - AJ, I am not Kate, though. I even told
him that I did not have a ‘K’ in my name.
AJ - Pais, just say your actual name. Don’t get
paranoid. It is a text message. He’ll understand.
ME - But what if he is a gang member? An escaped felon? A rapist, serial killer or even a ‘big bad wolf?’
AJ - OMG! Just do it. He will stop bothering
you. I promise.
AJ - ‘Big bad wolf?’ Paislie, What the heck?
ME - IDK. It just popped into my brain. I thought that it made sense.
AJ - Btw, you’re ridiculous. Absolutely, positively
ME - Was that the whole point of this? To say that I am an idiot?
AJ - Yeah. Pretty much.
Tuesday, January 7 ・ 8:14 p.m.
ME - Hey, what is your name again?
UN - Kate, are you okay? Is your memory
any different after the accident? This is
Eddy Roman. Does that ring a bell?
ME - Well, no. Because I’m not Kate. I’m Paislie.
UN - Oh… I get it! You are her sister! Nice
to meet ya! Can you give the phone to Kate
so I can talk to her?
ME - No. Because My sister’s name is Ana. NOT KATE.
UN - Does her middle name happen to be
Katherine? As in Ana Kate Betcherfeld?
ME - Weird. Yeah, actually. Did you look her up?
UN - I didn’t have to. She is my assigned
partner. I met you before. At her 2017 New Year’s
Party. You were the one that started throwing glitter
At people right? You looked exactly like Kate.
ME - Yeah. I did throw glitter. And Kate was
was older than me. People always thought
we were twins.
ME - Wait! Were you the guy who threw
My glitter back at me? Glitter was
UN - Yeah! So you do remember! How has Kate
been after the accident? Weren’t you in the car too?
ME - About that… I was the only one in either
car to live. The driver in the other car died…
And so did Ana. You didn’t hear?
UN - Oh no! I am sorry for your loss. As well
As my loss. When did that happen?
ME - About a month ago. It was 3 weeks after
UN - Were you okay after the accident?
ME - Yeah. It only hit Ana’s side of the car.

M - Ana was involved. Before she died,
she told me that she thought you were ready.
Please join us. You’ll be good!

exterminated if you disregard a mission.
