I'll Stand By You  
by C.R.M. Nilsson

Darlene drinks far too much. In the aftermath of the divorce thatís torn her life apart, she turns to alcohol. At first Nick sits down with her and buys her drinks. They curse Justinís name (he never liked him) and he offers to hunt him down.

But the weeks pass. She makes no effort to get back on her feet. Alanís and Nickís living roomís in constant darkness because of her hangovers. Alanís getting annoyed Ė Darleneís Nickís friend, not his.

Thereís an ultimatum.

Nick pours the alcohol down the sink. He hopes this can get her back on her feet.
