Star moves in with Hope
At least, she's s friend who's staying over for a few days, as Hope's such a pushover.
Star makes Hope's everyday life more bearable and fun
Her own hyperactivity is muted somewhat by the reality of Hope's situation
Eventually things come to a head
Hope is hurt and crying, both parents bitter and demand the other leaves
Star tries to get between them, but what does she know? Wht is she even doing there? Get out!
Finally they can agree on something
Hope climbs out the window after her
Go stay at Janna's for a few days
Come back, only Hope's mom is left.
Mom blames Hope in silence, doesn't even care that Star still stays with them.
Alternatively, Star gets kicked out, Hope attempts suicide, parents blame each other, angry at Hope because they don't understand, Star visits in hospital and is the only light left in Hope's light.Damn you all, /svfew/. Your writing prompts last week made me this way.
Still, either one of those might make for an interesting story, if I ever have the time. Maybe blend the two, even.
