My Triumphal Return to The Whiteaker!

Last year I returned to the Whiteaker with a neighbor that likes you. Kim Hafner said that no one likes me at McKenzie Meadows. I told her I was liked. She asked for that person’s name. I refused to give it to her. Was Kim going to show that person the fake abuser poster? This would extend Alley Valkyries “threat”. Indeed, Kim says on the Mob Attack video that Belle and Alley warned my neighbors. I look like the Phantom of the Opera.
