Me: Okay, and so it wasn’t even, like she was upset with how — [redacted] was acting necessarily, she was interested in this third party? If I’m getting that right.
Amy: I feel affair. Or in love. Or. You know, um, delusional.
Me: Okay. Um. Do we know anything about this third party? What he looks like, how JonBenet would know him, or… how Patsy would know him?

For the first time during any of our sessions, Amy actually stands up and leaves.
The air is electric, full of tension, and there is much, much more to come.
