Maggie goes to see Myrtle who is stunned when she sees Frankieís twin. Maggie is there to see Bianca who hasnít come down yet. Myrtle explains that Bianca loved Frankie very much. Myrtle thinks that maybe Maggie should come back in a few days. Bianca shows up and runs to greet Maggie. Myrtle leaves to get some tea. Bianca is glad that Maggie doesnít hate her for acting silly the night before thinking that she was looking at the real Frankie. Maggie knows that Bianca was close to Frankie and wonders if Frankie ever talked about her twin. She apparently didnít. She was pushing away everything. Bianca was close to Frankie but there was a lot that she kept to herself. Maggie never spent that much time with her sister. They were totally different. Frankie wanted to go to college but never got around to it. She barely went to high school. The twins were never that close and they didnít have that magical sense that everyone thinks twins have. Maggie wishes that she had been close enough to help her sister. She knows that they were not close but when she found out what happened, she felt like she lost an arm. That was the way that she felt about her. Bianca felt the same way. Maggie tells her that even though Frankie didnít tell Bianca a lot, her being there for her sister meant a lot. Maggie is grateful for that. Maggie didnít know that her sister liked poetry. Frankie loved music and lyrics and listened to it a lot. After Frankie died, Bianca found a book of poetry that was left for her with a note. It was like she knew that she was going to leave. Maggie takes the book and looks at it. Frankie liked words. She liked word puzzles and she even had a decoder ring that she thought solved puzzles. Bianca shows Maggie that there is a page missing from the book. Bianca wonders if that means that there was something to find out. Maybe the words on that page were too much for her. The poem might have been too meaningful for her. She removed the page before she was killed. Bianca thinks that maybe the missing page would tell her why she was with JR that night. Frankie seemed to be telling Bianca that she loved her in spite of everything that had happened. Bianca keeps thinking back to that night. She wishes that the night didnít happen. That last time that she saw Frankie she was furious and left the room. She wanted to say goodbye but Bianca isnít sure what she wanted to say. Maggie understands where Bianca is coming from. She takes Bianca in her arms and hugs her.
