I think Jessica felt so strongly about Fiona not telling people about Vanessa's mother because Jessica really liked her. If someone was nice to me, I wouldn't want to just go bad-mouth them behind there back.
I think the reason why Jessica felt strongly about Fiona telling any one about the incident is because of Vanessa's mother. She was so kind to Jessica about losing her leg and apologized to her because of the that Vanessa was acting. Since of her gestures toward Jessica she did not Vanessa to be ruined or her mom to be angry.
I think Jessica felt so strong about not having Fiona mention anything to anyone about Vanessa or her mother because she is surprised that Mrs. Steele feels the same way about her daughter, "self-absorbed,bratty". Jessica really warmed up to Mrs. Steele and she has a open heart and actually empathized with Jessica, if word got around that her mother had said that and Vanessa had acted like that people would have teezed Vanessa and it would have gotten around to her mother. Then, Jessica and Vanessa's mom would not get along anymore and Vanessa would loathe Jessica even more.
I think Jessica doesn't want Fiona to tell about the incident with Vanessa and her mom because the other kids on the track team could take it the wrong way. Fiona could say things and sometimes leave out things so that the person listening could think that Jessica is friends with Vanessa and her mom who are on their rival team.
I think that Jessica felt so strong about Fiona not mentioning the incident with her mother because it a private issue and I don't think that Jessica wants word of the conversation to get to Vanessa. I mean what would Vanessa think about her mother calling her self-absorbed. It would break her heart. I don't think that Jessica is the type of person to even risk that information getting to Venessa.
I think that Jessica didn't want Fiona to tell anyone about Mrs. Steele because her mother understood that her daughter is self-absorbed and bratty. Jessica thought that her mother was nice and nothing like her daughter. She just didn't feel like talking about her was right. Her mother was honest with Jessica and didn't make an effort to try to talk to her like a normal person, and instead she let her talk to honestly and she listened.
Jessica feels so strongly about Fiona not mentioning the situation between Vanessa and her mom. Jessica feels strongly about that because the situation between Vanessa and her mom might become a big deal. After that happens people might think badly of Vanessa, they’ll also think that she is not as nice of a person that people see her as. Then Vanessa will dislike Jessica even more then she did before. She will not like her even more because Vanessa will know that Jessica talked about the incident to other people.
I think she didn't want Fiona to mention it to any one because she didn't want Mrs.Steele to look bad because she already felt bad about Vanessa's behavior.
I think Jessica didnt want to share with everyone that Vanessa wasn't very nice and also that Mrs.Steele was talking to her. She didnt want to hurt vanessa.
Because of what her mom said. She said sorry for my dougter. No excuse me for raising such a self absorbs dauter. So she felt bad for her I'm sure. That's why Jessica felt so strongly about not letting Fiona telling everybody about it. Because of how nice and caring vennasas's mom was.
I think Jessica felt strongly about this because all though Vanessa herself could be really mean, that doesnt mean she should share news around about the mother. The mother was so kind and Jessica felt likespreading gossip about her wouldnt be nice. Mrs. Steele doesnt anything bad.
I think Jessica felt strongly about the incident with Vanessa's mother an Vanessa because Vanessa and her mother were so different. I bet if Jessica ever thought she would ever see Vanessa's mother, Jessica probably thought she would be like Vanessa. Also when Vanessa's mother was talking about how self-absorbed Vanessa is. She surprised Jessica so much. That is why I think she is feeling strongly about the incident because Vanessa's mother is a good person.
I think that Jessica does not want Fiona to tell anyone about what happened with Vanessa Steele and her mother, because they have such a long relationship of fighting. Then when Jessica is not running any more Vanessa's mom kind of just lets go on Jessica. She tells her about how she is really sorry about what happened in Jessica and her daughter's past. She even said that she is raising such a bratty daughter. This makes Jessica a little stunned. This person who you and her daughter have been going head to head with for a really long time and then her mom just talks to you like an open journal. This is why I think Jessica does not want any one to hear about what happened.
I think she felt strongly about that because im not really that sure but if i had to make a guess maybe it's because she doesn't want anyone else to find out about that. Also because maybe Kyro would be mad at Jessica for talking to one of their biggest competition's (Vanessa) mom.
Sorry I didn't really know how to respond to this blog!!!!!
I think Jessica is a strong person but while she has pride she does not take advantage of it and still treats everyone with respect. Once the incident that happened with the Steeles was over and she told Fiona Fiona wanted to tell everyone else what had happened but Jessica did not let her because she is too nice to go bashing others. She just wanted to get Fiona focused on the competition and even with the story because Fiona likes her best friend so much and Vanessa just did that to her there is an extra wave of determination, strong will, and fighting spirit for Fiona. Jessica also realizes that Mrs. Steele is disappointed in her daughter and feels like it is her fault for raising her up to be the person she is today. Jessica knows this and would never want to have to make Vanessa's mom have to suffer any longer.
I think she told fiona not to tell anyone so that no one would say anything bad about the mother because she was so nice to jessica.
