Resolution: After twenty years Jodee is invited to her twenty year High School reunion. She decides to go but when she gets there she wont get out of the car. She sits in the car thinking about what if they still don't like me and make fun of me, what if they don't remember what they did, will I fit in, all she did was doubt herself. She finally goes inside and everyone greets her with warm welcomings and conversations. Afterwards she is invited to go out to drink with all of them, She had a great time and she could finally forgive them and herself.
