Storyboard Text

  • I have a dilemma: should I confess to my father and all of Raveloe that I married Molly to escape my brother's blackmail? Or do I keep paying them off to keep quiet?
  • OPTION 1
  • If I keep paying them off, I can continue to see Nancy and no one will know… Except when she talks about marriage, or I run out of money.
  • OPTION 2
  • Or, I can tell everyone, which means I will lose Nancy, and possibly be disowned by my father.
