Jessica doesn’t truly know ways to analyze this new situation. Everyone at Jessica’s office notice that she is strolling on cloud 9 and is really pleased. Josh– her employer (whom she dated for a while in college) also notifications and begins to feel strange that he’s not a part of this new, better Jessica.

This tension blows up one day, when Jessica is with her mother (who’s been setting her up with unsuitable men as far back as she can remember) at the bridal shop, trying a gown for her bro’s wedding event.
