Coming soon...


Your Candy arrives to school the next day feeling uneasy due to her encounter with Deborah the day before. As fate would have it, the first person she sees that day is Deborah, who is acting overly cheery and causes your Candy to feel even more uncomfortable. Down the hall she spots Iris and Violette, which would explain why Deborah is putting on such a charade. Once she leaves, Iris approaches your Candy and is happy the two seem to be hitting it off well. Iris thinks your Candy and Deborah are alike, thinking that they both are friendly and ready to help anyone. Once she leaves, your Candy thinks about what she should do. Even though Deborah told her to keep quiet about their conversation yesterday, your Candy feels if she tells the others about it, that they will believe her. Your Candy runs into Melody, and she tries to explain to her about how Deborah is a manipulator. Melody doesn't believe your Candy, and she leaves feeling a little angry about your Candy's accusations against her friend. When your Candy runs into Alexy, she tells him about Deborah and the story she told her in Episode 15, but Alexy brushes it off and doesn't believe her. She then runs into Violette who, like the others, doesn't believe her. As your Candy enters the classroom, she sees Lysander, who tells her about how Castiel is feeling unsure and how he won't leave just yet, but it's not set in stone. The reason why he isn't at school is just because he was tired after the concert and wanted extra rest. When the duo part ways, your Candy runs into Kim who, once again, doesn't believe her story and thinks maybe it was just a joke. When your Candy runs into Deborah again, she acts "hurt" that your Candy would spread rumors about her. She pretends to be upset with these "false accusations" in front of the rest of the class, which makes your Candy look like a bully. Everyone takes Deborah's side, and Violette and Alexy help escort the crying girl away. Your Candy, feeling unsure and alone, flees to the courtyard and then to the locker room. Inside she sees Lysander, who sees she's pale and knows something must have happened. Your Candy has the choice to either tell him what happened or to brush it off. If she tells him the story, he will understand what happened and will tell your Candy that things will tide over by tomorrow. Your Candy agrees that going home will be best for now, and she heads off to the courtyard. There she runs into Rosalya, who has heard some of what has been happening. Luckily, she wants to hear your Candy's side of the story and once she does, she believes her. Rosalya warns her to be careful and that she'll investigate to find Deborah's weak spot. Rosalya offers for your Candy to join her, but she decides to take Lysander's advice and go home to rest. Before your Candy goes home she does a little shopping and buys herself a new outfit. She then goes home and rests for the night.

When your Candy arrives at school the next day, she feels alienated due to many people giving her mean looks. Armin tries joking with your Candy about the situation, but she's too down to play along. Armin apparently isn't on Deborah's side and even though he doesn't know the truth, at least he isn't against your Candy. Other friends of your Candy avoid being around her as the day goes on, even Iris, and your Candy feels even worse. She eventually runs into Kentin, who has heard a lot of bad things about her. He asks if she wants to talk about it, but your Candy doesn't want to right now. Your Candy then runs into Rosalya, who hasn't been able to do any research since she's been distracted. She tells your Candy to go see Castiel to understand why, but Castiel enters the classroom at that moment wearing his old clothes from when before your Candy attended Sweet Amoris. Both your Candy and Rosalya prefer his old outfit, but Castiel is unfazed. He wants them to leave the room since he has a meeting there and once he gets into a bad mood, your Candy and Rosalya leave. Rosalya explains to your Candy how the outfit Castiel's wearing is from when he was with Deborah and how she hopes he's not falling for her again. She also explains how she found the blog of one of Deborah's ex-guitarists and he had nothing good to say about her. Deborah had the article censored, so Rosalya contacted him to know the story. Apparently Deborah dated both the guitarist and the drummer at the same time to ask them if she could do interviews and photos alone instead of with the rest of the band. Since the guitarist left her band, Deborah will have trouble going on tour with only one band member, so she's looking for a replacement. After seeing him play in the concert, Deborah could see Castiel improved and wants him to join her band again to use him until she no longer needs him. Rosalya wants to find out more information and tells your Candy to stay out of trouble.

Your Candy doesn't want to sit around doing nothing while Rosalya is getting information, so she decides to find out information on her own from one source that was present during Deborah's first manipulation: Nathaniel. Before finding him, though, she checks up on Castiel to see how his meeting with Deborah went. He gets defensive again, however, and your Candy leaves after hearing that he believes the rumors about her. In the hallway, your Candy hears Iris and Violette talking about the situation together and how Alexy told everyone how your Candy was investigating Deborah yesterday to make her look bad, and your Candy regrets not going after him. Eventually, she runs into Lysander, who is worried about the change in Castiel. He also worries about your Candy and reassures her that she has people on her side. After a few hours, your Candy finally finds Nathaniel, who tells her that he knows Deborah is back and how people are avoiding your Candy. Your Candy wants his help in exposing the truth since Nathaniel has seen Deborah's evil ways, but he's been through enough with her and advises your Candy to just ignore her instead. She also worries for Castiel's sake, but Nathaniel sees it as him getting his just desserts. Nathaniel wants no part if getting involved with Deborah again and on that note, he leaves.

Your Candy feels she needs another ally she can rely on, but is unsure who would want to help her at this point. Although not the usual choice, she thinks of another person who also dislikes Deborah and may be willing to join the cause: Amber. Your Candy goes off to find Amber and runs into Lysander, who is surprised your Candy is looking for Amber of all people. He's unsure if asking Amber for help is a good idea, but your Candy still wants to try anyways. She then runs into Castiel, who is also surprised your Candy is looking for Amber. In the end, he warns her to be careful of what she asks for, otherwise she may regret her choice. Finally, she runs into Amber, who surprisingly doesn't believe Deborah and knows your Candy is innocent since she could tell Deborah was fake crying earlier. Your Candy asks her to help her beat Deborah at her own game, but Amber has a plan of her own and won't tell your Candy or let her join in. Amber has no intentions of helping your Candy and will use the situation to her advantage, instead. Once Amber leaves, she runs into Nathaniel, who is upset your Candy went to his sister for help. He tells her to give up on getting justice, but your Candy is determined to set things right. She storms out of the room before he can reply, and she feels a little relief from telling him how she feels.

Outside, she runs into Kim who says there's an interesting article in Peggy's newspaper, but your Candy will have to get her own copy since Kim is ignoring her. In the hallway, she runs into Iris, who is looking rather down. Your Candy asks what's wrong, in which she replies how learning a friend wasn't as nice as she thought makes her upset. It didn't upset her as much earlier, however, and your Candy wonders what made the change. Peggy then offers a newspaper to your Candy, in which she takes, and finds out the paper is about the stars of the concert. It includes the boys and Deborah, but Iris was excluded. Your Candy questions why Iris was left out, and Peggy replies that no one cares about her and that they only cared about the boys. Your Candy defends Iris, saying there couldn't have been a concert without her playing the bass, but it has no effect on Peggy. She then asks what Peggy does to make someone admit something, in which Peggy responds by saying it's best to lead them on discretely so they don't know they're being lead on. The best way is to record a conversation, though, so there's full proof of what had been said. Your Candy asks if she can borrow Peggy's voice recorder, but she doesn't agree and your Candy has to buy her own. Your Candy runs into Iris again, who says that she's not so worried about not being in the article as long as people she's close to know she was in it. Iris is happy your Candy was worried about her, though, and she thanks her before they part ways.

Once your Candy buys the video recorder, it's time to test it out to get the information she needs to expose Deborah. She goes off searching for Deborah, and finds Castiel again. She's not sure if it's a good idea to ask him if he's seen Deborah, but instead he asks her if she's read Peggy's article. Apparently it's the first time he's been in one of Peggy's articles since one she wrote about him and Amber. They part ways, and eventually she finds Deborah. Your Candy is quick to egg her on in hopes of Deborah spilling her secrets so she can record it, but Deborah acts sweet and innocent. Deborah then leaps at your Candy and takes the recorder out of her pocket, and promptly stops the recording. She explains how many people have tried to expose her using a tape recorder and when she replays it, it sounds like your Candy attacked her. She then takes the tape so that she can give it to Peggy and although your Candy tries to get it back, but Deborah pushes her down and leaves. Your Candy goes after Deborah, and runs into several classmates before finding out she's in the staircase with Peggy already. Your Candy is too late, and Peggy already is planning on using the tape for her next article. Even though your Candy tries to tell her side of the story, no one believes her.

Your Candy leaves the staircase feeling upset that things have only gotten worse, she she spots Amber with her friends leaving the bathroom while giggling. In their hands is a bucket of water, and your Candy asks them what they're doing. They won't tell her what's happening, but your Candy suspects they're pulling a prank. She gets curious and goes to see what will happen, and she runs into Nathaniel, whom she can either talk to or ignore. Either way, your Candy keeps looking for Amber until she runs into Castiel. He's still unsure about everything, and regrets not being at school when Deborah returned. Your Candy feels sorry for his troubles, but Castiel still lashes out and leaves. Back to following Amber, she spots them going up the stairs, so she follows. Upstairs, they wait by the window with the bucket of water and prepare to throw it down on someone, in which your Candy can try to stop them or let them do it. No matter what, Amber still throws the bucket of water down on Deborah and your Candy goes to the window to see the end result of the prank. Deborah thinks it's your Candy, and Amber's group is already gone. As your Candy flees, her name is called over the intercom, and she reports to the teacher's lounge. She's met with an angry principal and a soaking wet Deborah. Even though she defends herself, your Candy gets detention and leaves feeling like she's going to break down. She's then confronted by Castiel, who thinks she's the one who pulled off the toilet water prank. Your Candy tries to defend herself again, but Castiel yells at her instead and storms off. Your Candy then goes after him to try and make him understand, but he tells her to go away and pretend he doesn't exist. Your Candy's vision blurs as tears form in her eyes, and she calls Castiel an idiot before running away. If your Candy is close to Castiel, she'll hear him punch the wall as she leaves. At this point, your Candy runs into the boy she's closest to, and breaks down crying into their arms. Besides Castiel, the rest of the boys want to help your Candy, even Nathaniel, who was once not going to help. Once she calms down, she'll then tell them how everything is backwards and how everyone hates her. Rosalya will the show up, scolding your Candy for not staying out of trouble like she had told her. She does come with good news, though, saying how she's come up with a plan to expose the real Deborah to the rest of the school. She then says she wants to talk somewhere more secluded so no one else finds out about it, and your Candy agrees.
