Editor's Note:   Not for the first time, Alice hunts down her man and refuses to let him walk away from her.  It happened back around February too.   Got to love her fortitude.  It seems that he is the one that is feeling vulnerable this time.  Allen seems to think Alice hasn't been true to him in some regard.  This came up in June too--her belief in him.  He seems to need more assurance than he was getting and quite frankly, I don't think she's ever let her side down.  Love that she met him after school and they went for a walk to make up. I think she's meant to be up at work in Jamestown.
