Lacey wondered what he meant by delinquent, but decided not to ask. Even if he did have a criminal record, it should be left behind. The island offered everyone a clean slate. "That sounds horrible. Bombs and lack of resources. We never had bombs back home. And if anyone was hungry or needed something like clothes or shelter, we'd find a way to help them." She supposed that her near perfect life was the benefit of being from a family sitcom, and that was another thing she wouldn't comment on. It would be too much to explain that some people were from fiction, to a newcomer on his first island day.
Lacey smiled brightly. She did enjoy a compliment. She liked to think she excelled at everything. "Thank you. You'll have to try dessert when you're done."
