As she continues her freelance writing jobs, articles increase and so does her pay. But progress is very slow. Phone calls from other writing agencies ask about her whereabouts, telling her that she hasn't submitted articles at their agency. She goes through her notes and paperwork that she had accumulated at the latest Spring Garden Show seminars, and writes up two articles for one of the agencies. She goes back to build up her writing porfolio at the agency that promises ever-increasing profits in the long run.
In the middle of the day, Fiona walks to the conveniently small gym across the street to work out her stressful life. She comes home to shower, relax, eat, and continue writing before taking another needed break.
She drops by another computer site to check on emails, and someone invites her to join the same virtual reality world but on the other site. She contemplates whether she should join it or not because she is already living in that small town virtual world but on a different site. Life could get more confusing and stressful, hopping at different worlds as she works with many writing agencies to build a lucrative writing career. Due to the need for more excitement in her social life, she decides to go for it. She joins the small virtual town, and she gets an apartment with few basic pieces, like before. The landlord welcomes her with a housewarming gift, and she decides to play the lotto there to further improve her life because she has nothing in that town.
As she walks alone toward the factory in order to pick up her paycheck, she feels depressed and lonely. She realizes this small and quiet town is more dead than the other one. She doesn't know anyone here. After she picks up her paycheck, she decides to stroll in the empty streets, on her way back to the apartment, in order to try to make some new friends in the area. But it feels like a ghost town. People seem cold and unfriendly. Who are these people? She loiters with a large crowd in front of her apartment building, doing some part-time ttt and rps marketing jobs for extra income. She makes friends with six people, and they give her some housewarming presents to welcome her to their community.
She goes inside her apartment, and notices that she barely has anything in it, except for some gifts as well as some fun living room furniture she recently bought with her paycheck. Her job at the factory is an entry level internship, and it doesn't pay her much. Her refrigerator is empty because she doesn't have much money left to buy some food. She eats toast for breakfast, grabs a cheap lunch and dinner from the hot dog vendor downstairs, and jogs to the coffee shop for some coffee, before and after work, to help her keep going thoughout the day.
She feels depressed in this town with no hope as she thinks about how much her career and life has grown in the other small and similar town because it is more lively. She knows more people there, has subordinates working for her, and she has been promoted to a managerial position. She enjoys a condo with a jacuzzi that is facing the beach as well as a nice house in the suburbs. She also has three pets there. Life there seems more satisfying.
As she toggles between Professional Writer named Fiona Leigh and the young and lost Gothic girl named Lucifer, she starts to feel schizophrenic. She hears voices that confuse her. Lucifer says one thing and Fiona says another, but Fifileigh tries to make sense of all the mess and confusion in order to remain sane in her reality.
Her reality? What is her reality? Where is her reality? Who is she? Lucifer? Fiona? Fifi? Questions keep popping into her head, making her question everything about her life and where it is heading. But she realizes that she now lives many different lives as different people. Fifileigh the former fashion model turned fashion writer, Fiona the professional writer, and Lucifer the struggling and starving girl. As she tries to decide and make sense of all this, she suddenly falls asleep on her couch, in her very cold, dark and empty apartment, dreaming and hoping that things will soon get better. But due to the harsh realities of life, she realizes that they probably will not.
