Brief Synopsis of the intermediate crisis Nel faces, for the EWW.
|The Intermediate Crisis
After being discharged from hospital, Nel is starting to feel more confident. She visits Sam every day, as she loves spending time with him. She has also got to know his mother and stepfather, and she love spending time with all of them. His parents are, however, not entirely happy about their relationship being more than just friends. Staff at the hospital, Nel’s friends, also. They all think the couple should slow down. Hannah and Marnie even book a holiday to Tenerife, to give them time apart.
One day, Nel visits when Sam is in the woodwork studio. His stepdad is there helping him. This is the moment where he chooses to tell Nel he is her father. She doesn’t react well. Neither does Sam. She runs off and goes to confront her mother (who visited Nel in the hospital once, and left as soon as she saw Sam’s dad). Gradually, Nel comes to terms with this.
