Extract

Poor Sal, tried her hardest not to be cast out from the trendy fold of Rob's world but they treated her like she was a traffic light window washer, and sped off into the distance of acquaintanceship ... I moved in on Sal, we hung out and it would have been fine if Rob had left her alone, I wouldn't have had to kill her.
